Campus Dean Who’s Who: Find Out Who Serves Your Campus

Several ACC campuses have new Student Services (campus) deans, or have deans who have transferred from other campuses. Campus deans oversee student services programs for their campus and work with faculty and staff to promote student success. Some deans also are process holders for collegewide programs. See the complete list of deans, assignments, and contact information below.
