The Dean of Students office advances a progressive, innovative, and learning-centered program responsible for leading the student community in decision-making that promotes civility and student success. The Dean of Students office is responsible for administration and interpretation of the Student Code of Conduct and serves as a “universal starting point” for students who need assistance in exploring and addressing their concerns and grievances toward faculty, staff, individual offices, or other students. The office offers services that include conflict coaching, mediation, restorative justice circles facilitation, and student advocacy. The Student Advocacy Program  advocates and provides access to resources for Northeastern students who may be experiencing homelessness, hunger, and other personal crisis to lessen any disruption in their education. The program provides a safe and confidential environment to hear student concerns. For more information on the Student Advocacy Program, please contact us at dos@neiu.edu.
