It’s About Students

The Dean of Students team will eliminate individual and systemic barriers to persistence by raising the Hokie community's social consciousness through advocacy, education and empowerment.

As Student Advocates, we will:

  • Support and care for students in the midst of their crisis.

  • Empower students to utilize their university and community resources.

  • Work and advise with both our heads and our hearts.

  • Respect the student and the advocacy process by being actively engaged through recognizing our own biases and by collectively pursuing greater self-understanding and integrity.

There are twenty student advocates within our three departments.
