About Us

The Office of the Dean of Students responds to the informational and personal concerns of students and oversees the protection of student rights. The office plays a major role in promoting and upholding the shared values and ideals of the Radford University community.

The office provides a variety of services for students. These include student advocacy services, off-campus student services, student publications, information for parents and families, absence notices, references/verifications for graduate school and employment, and services with the Student Government Association.

We also offer resources and support to students. The Highlander Pantry is available to all members of the Highlander family offering discreet access to free food and basic hygiene items, located in Heth 243. The Highlander Student Emergency Fund is a non-academic limited one-time fund for students who need assistance with basic life needs. Students need to contact our office to schedule an intake to discuss applying for the fund.
