EWU Student Life and the Dean of Students seek to encourage and empower our students to discover, pursue and realize their personal and educational goals. Our efforts and resources are founded on the following key principles to facilitate student retention and success: support, advocacy, engagement and learning.
As student development educators, our goal is to promote and provide a holistic learning environment through Student Life programs/resources that support students' intellectual, social and ethical development. In support of this goal, we also serve as resources for parents and families, faculty, staff and university stakeholders, all of whom serve as important partners in encouraging our students' persistence and success.
To learn more about the helpful resources available through our office, or if you need assistance or referrals to another campus department, please visit, call or email us. We look forward to talking with you!
