Dean of Students

On Thursday, August 6, a panel of experts—all of whom have been working tirelessly and lending their collective expertise to the development and implementation of our fall plans—walked students and families through several different aspects of returning to campus in the fall, including: testing and traveling back to campus, academic course models and support, the move-in process, health and safety measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 on campus, community expectations for living and learning together, and more.

The event was live-streamed and gave students and families opportunities to ask questions. A transcript of the Q&A chat will be posted here as soon as it is available. Check back soon.

Panelists included:

  • Emily Perlow, Assistant Dean of Students
  • Suzanne Weekes, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies and Professor, Mathematical Studies
  • Casey Wall, Assistant Dean and Director of the Housing & Residential Experience Center
  • Charlie Morse, Associate Dean and Director of Counseling
