About the Dean of Students Office

Welcome to Cal State Monterey Bay!

The Dean of Students Office is here to provide care, support, advocacy, and accountability for all our students, in collaboration with faculty and staff across the university. The Office includes Basic Needs, Recreation, Student Engagement and Leadership Development, and Student Conduct. These programs and services offer a wealth of resources and support during your time at CSUMB. We are here to help you navigate your campus experience. 

I encourage you to get involved, whether joining a club or student organization, getting an on-campus job, finding an internship, or research opportunity. These experiences will take your education to another level, assist in making new friends, provide career preparation, and build professional networks. I am excited to have you as a valued member e your feedback, questions, or concerns by emailing or calling 831-582-4081. I invite you to visit our office in Sand Hall (Bldg 8), and to say hello to me whenever you see me around campus.

Go Otters!
