Educate. Advocate. Empower. Succeed.

The Dean of Students Office at Cal Poly Pomona is a unit under the Division of Student Affairs that holistically supports student success through intentional programs, initiatives and collaborative partnerships (engagement), fosters an anti-racist and student-ready culture (equity and access) and creates innovative and integrative co-curricular pathways rooted in career readiness and civic engagement (lifelong learning and advocacy).

Utilizing a social justice framework, the Office of the Associate Vice President and Dean of Students is a central space for students, parents, staff and faculty to receive assistance with navigating the complexity of campus life. Additionally, the Office of the Associate Vice President and Dean of Students (AVP/DOS Office) supports the University’s mission and values, promotes self-authorship and facilitates a safe, vibrant, healthy, inclusive and resilient community.
