Dear Hilltoppers,

Whether you are a student, a family member, faculty or staff member, or an alum, we all share the values of our Holy Cross founders when it comes to community, diversity, social justice and service. In that spirit, staff members in the Dean of Students Office look forward to collaborating with you and serving our community in a variety of ways!

Should any member or guest of the St. Edward’s University community have a concern regarding a student, you are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students Office by email or phone. There are several resources to assist you as well. Relationships form quickly on our campus and reflect a connected and vibrant university community where we look out for one another and support one another in the greater journey of education, faith and spirituality, and human development.

If you haven’t stopped by our office in Main Building G16, please do so! We always look forward to another great year on the Hilltop.
