The Office of the Dean of Student Life works to enhance the quality of life for students living on and off campus.  With collaboration and support from faculty, staff, and local community officials, we encourage the development of a healthy, respectful, and productive community of student leaders. 

Our students take advantage of a vast amount of activities and programs that support good citizenship, academic success, positive social connections, and professional growth.  As a resource for all students, faculty, and staff, we serve as one of many reference points for those seeking to resolve issues of concern or to explore ways to enrich the student experience at Ferris State University.

In addition to the Office of the Dean of Student Life, there are many more campus resources and services to help students navigate their collegiate experience.  The departments listed below are included in the Dean of Student Life portfolio:

  • Office of Student Conduct
  • Center for Leadership, Activities, and Career Services
  • Office of Multicultural Student Services
  • Birkam Health Center and Personal Counseling Center
  • University Recreation
  • Rankin Student Center/University Center
