WELCOME TO THE OFFICE OF THE DEAN OF STUDENTS
The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to our students and we believe that our exemplary services support the academic mission of FAMU and its commitment to “Excellence with Caring.” Our office offers a variety of student support services and assistance to students, families, faculty and staff, along with opportunities in leadership, volunteerism, student engagement, fraternity and sorority life, student government and career development.
The Office of the Dean of Students includes the following departments: Campus Recreation, Career and Professional Development Center, Center for Disability Access and Resources (CeDAR), Counseling Services, Diversity and Inclusion, Student Health Services, Efferson Student Union and Activities, FAMU Educational Research Center for Child Development (FAMU-ERCCD), Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution, Military and Veteran Affairs, TRIO Programs, and University Housing.
We assist students with a variety of concerns by working directly with them and connecting them to appropriate resources and services on campus. We also consult with and serve as a resource for faculty and staff, parents, families, and friends, working together to serve students through the Assessment and Care Team (ACT), the FarmShare and FAMU Food Pantry, and the Dorothy Henderson Scholars Program for Foster Care and Homeless Students.
