Student Affairs

Learning outside of the classroom

The Division of Student Affairs provides a broad range of student services and programs designed to enhance the learning experience of Willamette students. Learning is not only the province of the classroom, the lab and the library, but is also achieved in the volunteer or political project, the athletic field or court, in conversations at the Bistro, in residence halls and in numerous other places. Student Affairs aims to enhance and extend students' total learning experience, working closely with students, faculty and other administrators to achieve these goals.

Office of Student Affairs and Dean of Students

The Dean of Students is housed in the office of Student Affairs and is a safe place where students and their families can come when they need assistance in traditional and non-traditional ways.  It is a conduit between students and their success: assisting in connecting students to resources, providing opportunities to engage in Willamette and the world around us, or a listening ear when they need to be heard. Transfer student support services are also available for those who are new to Willamette but not new to college.

The Parent Information Network is located in the office of Student Affairs, and is here to answer questions and address concerns that a student’s family may have.  Oversight of the Code of Student Conduct and the conduct program is the responsibility of the Dean of Students as well.   For more information on what the office of Student Affairs can do for you, contact the office at 503-370-6447 or email us at <>.
