The first stop for student-related issues should be the Office of the Dean of Student Life, a new resource for students, faculty, and staff. The office staff is trained to assess issues, provide referrals, and intervene when necessary in areas such as student conduct and academic appeals. The office's Coordination Assistance Response Education (CARE) Team addresses specific incidents and general concerns about student behavior. The office also oversees student legal and mediation services, residence life, the women's resource center, and student activities and leadership programs.
