A Message from the Dean

As the Dean of Students, I want to personally welcome you to Shawnee State University and to the Division of Student Affairs. The Dean of Students Office and the areas that report to the Dean of Students assists students in the resolution of problems, referral to campus resources, and provides involvement activities that promote personal growth and development. If you are ever unsure where to go or who to ask for help, we are here to help. I invite you to take the time to learn about the various functions of the Dean of Students Office.

Again, welcome to SSU and if you see me around campus, feel free to say hello.

Go Bears,
Marcie Simms
Dean of Students
