Social & Personal Advising Resources

Undergraduate Deans Office

Deans support and advise students on all issues relevant to a successful college experience -- e.g., roommate & family conflicts, balancing social activities, campus adjustment/environment difficulties, medical/health problems.  They also help students navigate Dartmouth policies and procedures.  Ultimately, the role of the Assistant Undergraduate Deans in the development of Dartmouth students is to help them to function independently -- to be able to locate resources, to access information and to act in their own interests.

Additional social and personal advising resources are listed below:

The Center for Gender & Student Engagement

The Center for Gender & Student Engagement celebrates women's achievements, explores the role gender plays in human experience, and supports individual and collective struggles related to gender.
