The Office of the Dean of Students serves a central role in the development of the whole student both inside and outside of the classroom.

Additionally, the Dean’s Office supports the University’s mission by providing intentional opportunities for students to learn, grow, and reach their highest potential through the promotion of resources, services, activities, support networks, community standards, and strategic collaborations with other deans, chairs, faculty, and the Associated Student Government. 

The Office of the Dean of Students assists with the resolution of student concerns and provides student learning through Student Affairs’ core values and goals.




As the Vice President of Student Affairs, the Dean of Students leads the Division of Student Affairs and directly supervises five pillars and their respective Associate or Assistant Dean:

  • Student Affairs' Operations led by Associate Dean Gwen Young
  • Student Engagement, Events, & Leadership led by Interim Assistant Dean Lucie Menjivar 
  • Student Health & Well-Being led by Assistant Dean Carol Daugherty
  • Student Life led by Assistant Dean Emily McElwain
  • Student Support & Advocacy led by Assistant Dean Bonnie Fruland

Student Affairs' Pillars


Absentee Notification

The Office of the Dean of Students provides Class Absence Notifications for students with documented emergent situations and extenuating circumstances. Formal documentation or verification must be submitted including the dates in which the student was or will be absent from class.

Student Concerns and Complaints

Our goal at Colorado State University Pueblo is to provide the best experience for students. However, if you have a complaint with the University that you have not been able to resolve, please complete this Student Formal Complaint Form. We are committed to the appropriate resolution of complaints. The complaint process allows us the opportunity to improve our programs and services.

Dean's Certification

A letter of clearance (Dean's Certification) is verification that you, as a CSU Pueblo student, have not violated any University policies or been subject to any disciplinary actions or proceedings. These letters are usually required by graduate and professional schools, state bar associations, government agencies, or independent agencies when applying for admission or employment.


If you are worried about a CSU Pueblo student who may be struggling or whose behavior is concerning, please submit a Pack CARES Referral.  Even if you aren't sure whether to report an incident, it’s better to submit the information you have and someone from the Pack CARES Team will follow-up with you.

Incident Reports

If you have knowledge that a member of the University community may have violated the Student Code of Conduct, please use this incident report form to notify the Office of Student Conduct and Case Management.

Pack Guide

The Pack Guide (student handbook) is a resource that provides processes and procedures that are expected of members of our CSU Pueblo community.
