The successful candidate must bring uncompromising commitment to the wellness and well-being of students themselves with a desire for creating an optimal learning environment and guiding students throughout the continuum of their educational and professional careers. The Associate Dean must have an ethos that incorporates advocacy, compassion, and engagement, establishing credibility and confidence among all students.
