Dean of Student Development

Student Center, 973.720.2742

The Dean of Student Development is committed to helping students grow and develop personally, intellectually and professionally. Whether it is a time in your life when you are exploring something new or whether you are coping with an acute or chronic difficulty that may be getting in the way of your education, there are professional staff in our offices that can help you.

Learning when and how to access available resources – either to enhance your educational efforts, or for help in overcoming obstacles to achieving your personal and professional goals – is an important part of student development and out-of-class learning.  We hope this is an essential part of the education you gain at William Paterson University.  Practicing that skill now, whether by arranging regular annual physicals, utilizing career development resources each year you are here, or becoming involved with others with similar interests in a club or learning community, will better prepare you for life beyond college.  The Student Development offices and staff members listed here are all ready and able to help you.  It is up to you to access them in a timely way.

If you are not sure where to turn for help at William Paterson University related to your education or personal growth, please contact me and I am happy to meet with you personally, or connect you with the right person to get your issue resolved. All of us at William Paterson University look forward to helping you succeed in your educational efforts.
