Each campus in New Brunswick has a Campus Dean and a Dean of Students. These deans help students and faculty take advantage of all the campus has to offer them, and to foster exciting learning communities with student-centered services. Campus Deans generate academic programs and events that bring faculty and students together beyond the classroom, helping to build an academic community on the campus. Campus Deans work very closely with the Deans of Students on each campus to ensure that all students have the most positive, productive, and successful academic experience possible.
