Welcome from the Dean of Students

Welcome to the Office of the Dean of Students and to your student life experience. There is a place for every student to get involved at SF State. Find your connection at SF State to strengthen your student life experience both in and outside the classroom. If you do not find your interest listed on this website, let us know, so we can help you get involved at SF State.


We want you to succeed at SF State, including through life’s challenges.  I myself had a difficult transition when I first attended college and it was through the support of my Resident Assistant and a college tutor that I was able to turn my college experience around for the positive. SF State has numerous resources to assist you. Life can be challenging at times, but we also know that with assistance and persistence you can succeed.


We hope you are as excited to be a member of our SF State community as we are to have you here at SF State.  Through integrating academic, co-curricular, and residential services we hope to enhance your intellectual, public service, and leadership interests to meet your future aspirations as a future Gator alumnus.


Go Gators!
