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 AVP/DOS Office supports the University’s mission and values, promotes self-authorship and facilitates a safe, vibrant, healthy, inclusive and resilient community.
