About Us

We are here for you

The Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences is located on the first floor of O'Reilly Hall. It is across the Central Mall from Kennedy Union and is close to several residence halls.

Those who administer to the college - the dean, associate deans and assistant deans - are a diverse group of faculty from departments across the College. In addition to their administrative efforts, they are often actively involved in research and scholarship.
