Meet the Dean of Students

Jeff Kelly
Dean of Students


To help ensure the safety and well-being of our students, the Dean of Students Office is responsible for enforcing the student conduct policies of the University. Please take time to carefully review the policies and procedures below:

On behalf of all of us who work in Student Affairs – Residence Life, Student Activities, the Wellness Center, Multicultural Experience and Student Conduct – it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Stevenson University. My hope  is that you will take full advantage of all that Stevenson has to offer, both in and out of the classroom. You  will find a dedicated, committed, and talented faculty that will both challenge and support you as you pursue your academic goals. I can also assure you that we have a devoted  group in the Office of Student Affairs who are equally committed to your success.
One reason Stevenson is a special place is because of the commitment each member of our community makes to living the Stevenson Way. The Stevenson Way is a summary of our four values—fostering learning, instilling integrity, promoting a sense of community, and achieving excellence. At Stevenson, we believe that these core values provide a foundation for faculty, staff, and students to fulfill the mission and achieve the vision of the institution.
We truly value the sense of community here and students frequently talk about this when you ask them what they like most about Stevenson. I encourage you to become an active member of the Stevenson University community – join a club or an organization, become a leader in Student Government, play a sport, join the marching band, or get involved in our Theatre program. And, take the time to support your fellow Stevenson students by attending their plays, sporting events, or other campus activities. Also, don’t lose sight of the fact that much of what you will learn at Stevenson will take place outside the classroom. So many opportunities will be available to you and I urge you to take advantage of them - attend presentations that are offered by guest speakers, go to cultural events such as art exhibits and theatre performances, and learn from your fellow students  as they emerge as young leaders.
This is an exciting time at Stevenson. But, in order to appreciate what a great place Stevenson is, I think it is important that you choose to become an engaged, active member of our community. If you do, I am confident that you will find that Stevenson is not only a great place to be, but, when you graduate, you will find that Stevenson is also a great place to be from.
