The St. Edward’s University experience strives to prepare students to live purposeful and productive lives in a diverse society.

Sometimes students aren't at their very best, the Dean of Students Office is here to support and assist students while they grow and develop during their time at St. Edward’s. We do this by working with students to make sure they are benefiting from resources that assist them in their intellectual, physical, social and spiritual growth. 

If you have a concern and want to report it and/or request follow-up, please complete the Student of Concern/Conduct Form. By completing this form, you are initiating a response process. A staff member will look into the matter and may follow up with you.

If help is needed immediately, please call the University Police Department at (512) 448-8444.
