You are here

Meet the VP and Dean of Students


Who are you? Where are you going in life? How can you lead others, and serve them? These are the kinds of questions Holy Cross students ask on their educational journey. The role of Student Affairs is to help our students find their individual answers to these fundamental questions.

Guided by Jesuit ideals, we believe that every person has a unique combination of interests and talents to contribute to the world. Our job is to support you in developing your gifts so you can share them with others. We understand that education is about personal as well as intellectual growth. It takes place not only in the classroom but also in residence halls, clubs and activities, and service to others. Through this approach to education, you will learn to connect your head and your heart and make good decisions. This is why Holy Cross students and graduates are known for their character, leadership, and global perspective.

I invite you to explore the web sites of the departments that make up Student Affairs to see the many resources we offer to support you in enriching your experience at Holy Cross. You are also welcome to visit our office (Hogan, 109), and I look forward to meeting you.
