The Office of Student Life seeks to enhance the academic, social, and spiritual lives of students through departments and programs outside of the formal academic curriculum, and the dean of students coordinates these efforts. This includes providing oversight in the following areas: admissions, financial aid, student accounts, student records, career development, alumni relations, events, and bar exam services. In addition, as the chief student affairs officer, the dean of students is responsible for managing student assessments, student counseling, student discipline, student organizations, spiritual life, and diversity efforts.
