The Dean of Students Office can assist students with a range of support services and protective measures, including in cases where the student wants his/her identity to remain confidential. In addition, we help survivors, parents, and other community members understand the official reporting and adjudication processes. Our office also houses the administrative disciplinary process when this path is requested by a survivor. Services are available during regular business hours and on an emergency basis when needed.

For immediate assistance outside of normal office hours, call 911 or contact the Sexual Assault Resource Team’s 24 hour, confidential hotline at (305) 798-6666.
