Office of the Dean of Students


Welcome to CSU Pueblo! Student Affairs is the place where possibilities and opportunities are life changing. As your Dean of Students, I am here to support you throughout your collegiate experiences both inside and outside of the classroom, from start to finish. 

In the division of Student Affairs, we will connect you with university programs, activities, services, and resources.  All offices underneath the umbrella of Student Affairs are here to enhance your learning, promote growth, and to support the development of the whole person-student.

Please feel free to stop by the Dean’s Office, in Suite # 201 of the OSC (Occhiatio Student Center). I'd love to get to know you and answer any questions you may have.  Again, welcome to CSU Pueblo. I look forward to assisting you and welcome home!

- Dr. Marie Humphrey, Senior Associate Vice President for Student Affairs & Dean of Students


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

The Dean’s Office supports the advancement of the University’s mission by providing intentional opportunities for students to learn, grow, and reach their highest potential through the development of programs, 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 encourages the positive growth of students, assist with the resolutions of student concerns, refers to appropriate resources, and provides student learning through core values and goals.

  • Student Engagement, Events, & Leadership led by Assistant Dean Gena Alfonso
  • Student Health & Well-Being led by Assistant Dean Carol Daugherty

  • 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.
