The Class Deans

Class deans are responsible for a comprehensive program of academic advising and class management in the context of a residential liberal arts environment. This includes helping students develop educational goals and complete their graduation requirements; working with faculty to support student success in the classroom; facilitating access to academic and non-academic support services; and supporting student transitions from high school through the undergraduate years to life post-Wesleyan. Class Deans have daily drop-in hours during the week and are also available for appointments. 

The Class Dean drop-in hours are Monday 2:00-3:00, Tuesday 3:00-4:00, Wednesday 5:00-7:00, Thursday 11:00-12:00 and Friday 2:00-4:00.
