General Assistance/On-Call Dean System
You don't have to see THE Dean!
On Monday through Friday from 8:30 - 11:30 AM and from 1:00 - 4:30 PM, throughout the calendar year*, an Assistant Dean is available on an on-call basis for walk-in visits or to respond to phone calls and e-mails. Students may either come by Room 75 Bascom Hall or call 263-5700. Services provided range from advocacy, problem-solving and conflict mediation to adjudication of alleged violations of UWS 14, 17, and 18 (the University's student code of conduct). Students with general information inquiries should also visit the Visitor & Information Programs. For after-hours crisis response, please call Counseling & Consultation Services at 265-5600. For all other after-hours emergencies, please call the UW Police Department at 911 from any campus phone.
For information regarding absences from classes, please see our page on absences.
(*There may be rare occasions during staff development meetings or Dean of Students all-staff meetings when, for a short period of time, an on-call Dean may not be immediately available.)
