Assistant deans of students function as an intermediary between the student body and the office of the dean. The assistant dean functions as an advocate for students, as well as a conduit that helps create and administer university policy. An assistant dean must work closely with students, bringing forth their concerns, wishes, and expectations from university programs and policy. Then, the assistant must use that input to assess, create, and guide university policy and programs toward students. The assistant dean will also help guide programs throughout the university including academic and financial programs.
