The School of Engineering hosts an embedded assistant dean of students from the UVA Care and Support Services team. The assistant dean specializes in providing crisis triage and response, Engineering and University resource referrals, information about University conduct policies and generalist support for students in distress. The assistant dean also works closely with support services and resources in other offices or areas of the Engineering School and the University to connect students with the most helpful and relevant support available for their specific needs or concerns. This position is temporarily vacant, while we search for a new assistant dean to join our school community.
How to Make An Appointment
While we search for a new assistant dean, students who wish to make an appointment to speak with anyone from the Office of the Care and Support Services can call the office at 434-924-7133. Students may also contact the office via email at CASS@virginia.edu, or walk in any time during business hours to Peabody Hall (second floor). Staff on the team will meet with students, listen to their concerns, and work to determine what additional meetings or referrals will be appropriate and helpful.
