It is my honor to be your Dean of Students.  I came to NJIT in July of 2015 after two decades of experience in creating environments in which students can thrive inside and outside the classroom.

The entire Dean of Students team exists to create opportunities for Student Support and Engagement.  Through partnerships with offices across campus we function as the heart of NJIT. Contact us if you are having difficulties, if you have a great idea for improving student life on campus or if you are simply unsure about where to turn for help.  I encourage you to explore our webpage to learn more about the many services we provide.  I’m looking forward to meeting you.
