Message from the Dean
The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to cultivating an environment where your possibilities can become reality. The Dean of Students serves as your primary advocate for students and their holistic developmental needs (i.e., educational, social, personal, spiritual) here at Johnson C. Smith University. (JCSU) We provide you with the care and support needed to successfully navigate our campus culture and landscape by connecting you with the appropriate university and community resources. We realize that each of you will face challenges sometimes. We are here to listen and respond to your concerns and grievances. Cross-campus collaboration ensures that every step has been taken to reach the best possible resolution.
It is our goal to make your college experience meaningful! Having a great college experience is about experiencing everything your campus offers inside and outside the classroom. Know your rights and responsibilities, talk to people, go to campus events, join an organization, prioritize, go to class, take care of your personal and mental health, and ask for help! We genuinely want JCSU to be the place where you can grow here and glow everywhere!
Cathy Jones, Ph.D.
