Welcome to St. Mary’s College of Maryland. At Maryland’s public honors college, students will be challenged and transformed by our robust liberal arts curriculum and our strong spirit of community. As the Dean of Students, my job is to lead the Division of Student Affairs in supporting the most valuable asset the College has: our students!
Being a member of this beautiful community provides each of us the opportunity to learn from each other and practice the responsibilities that are required for a community to be safe and welcoming to each of its members. Achieving this is hard work that requires patience, critical thinking, compassion, and a commitment to the idea of community. I invite all of you into a partnership with our division in this important process. Everyone benefits when we work together to create an inclusive and engaging campus.
The Division of Student Affairs is committed to helping you navigate St. Mary’s in a manner that exposes you to all the College has to offer. We will also challenge you to consider different perspectives and try new experiences as you progress toward graduation. Our goal is to promote your individual growth, facilitate constructive engagement in our community, and encourage the development of life skills that will help you be successful well beyond your time on campus.
