The Dean of Students is responsible for several campus policies and procedures, the registration of activities form, and the University's Electronic Events Calendar.
In addition to the responsibilities listed above, the Dean of Students oversees the following areas within the Division for Student Affairs:
These areas create personal developmental opportunities for all students through a wide range of programs. We serve as educators outside the classroom, helping students prepare for their lives after college. We are here to help you achieve your full potential as a student.
The Dean of Students also oversees the following University Committees:
Southeastern Threat Assessment and Response Team
The purpose of the Southeastern Threat Assessment and Response Team (START) is to assess and respond quickly and effectively (with input from pertinent professionals on the team) to reports of students who present behaviors that are potentially or actually harmful to themselves or to others, or who are disruptive to the teaching and learning process, whether or not these behaviors are psychologically/medically based. The team functions as a communications and information-sharing network that assesses and responds to students in crisis in or out of the classroom. Additionally, the team meets regularly to discuss and plan appropriate responses to potential student psychological/mental health and behavioral issues.
Campus Assault Response and Education
Southeastern Louisiana University is committed to creating and maintaining an educational community where all individuals who participate University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of sexual misconduct. To assure the campus community is educated and appropriate resources are readily available, Southeastern has created a Campus Sexual Assault and Response and Education Team (CARE).
CARE is comprised of faculty, students, and staff from across campus. The team is one part "education" and one part "response". We develop programs, services, and campaigns to educate students about sexual assault, consent, and healthy relationships with the ultimate goal of preventing sexual violence. In addition to educating the student body, we provide campus wide education for faculty and staff to ensure we are in compliance with all federal mandates.
Hazing Education and Response Team
Hazing was once seen as an activity that affected a very specific group of students, members of fraternities and sororities on college campuses. Recent information indicates that hazing is a larger problem that goes beyond Greek letter organizations and could impact students as early as the beginning of high school. It is important to increase awareness and become educated about hazing and how to address it, which is why the Hazing Education and Response Team (HEART) was created.
Lyceum Arts & Lectures
The Lyceum Arts & Lectures Committee is charged with advancing the availability of programming in the areas of arts and lectures for the university community. Its function is to help departments and organizations on campus by assisting them with finances and ideas for campus wide programming.
