Dean of Students and Student Conduct
The Dean of Students/Director of Student Conduct and the department's team assist with student concerns, including but not limited to: partnering with MavCARES and MavConnect staff; offering information and referrals to student support offices; co-chairing the Behavioral Consultation Team; collaborating with offices across campus to address students in crisis; assisting with follow up after an incident; and overseeing the student disciplinary process. Faculty and staff in every position on campus play an important role in mentoring students and supporting retention. Early intervention is key if a concern arises. Through teamwork, we enhance student success.
In holding students accountable for their actions, Student Conducty promotes and enforces the responsibilities students agree to when they enroll at Minnesota State Mankato. Our goals in working with students include helping them find a renewed sense of integrity and civility and maintaining a safe and supportive environment for everyone’s education and growth.
