Message from the Dean of Student Life

Thank you for the trust you have placed in Oregon State University to provide your student with the necessary skills and knowledge to be successful in life.

The Office of Student Life works collaboratively with you to provide the support your student needs to be successful at OSU. Through our programs, services, and initiatives, we strive to foster a holistic learning environment that supports students' cognitive, physical, emotional, and spiritual development. Our office is a great place to start when wishing to connect to campus resources and engagement opportunities, especially if your student needs support during an emergency, illness, and other life challenge. We also strive to educate students about community standards and expectations and provide an array of services, through various Student Life offices, that assist specific student populations.

We also serve as advocate for student issues and concerns, respond to student emergencies and crisis situations, and serve as a resource for parents and family members. Please contact us if you have any concerns regarding your student.

Our website was designed to provide information about services and resources available to you and your student. If you cannot find the information you are seeking please feel free to contact me at 541-737-8748 or deanofstudents@oregonstate.edu .

Go Beavs!

Dan Larson,
Associate Vice Provost for Student Affairs and Interim Dean of Student Life
