Welcome and thank you for choosing College of the Mainland! The mission of the Dean of Students Office is to enhance the quality, character, and perspectives of our students.

We promote an environment that encourages intellectual exchange and individual expression. The role of the Dean of Students is to represent student concerns and provide programs and services that facilitate both student personal and academic growth. The Office also oversees implementation of College rules and policies that have been established for the well-being of all.

The Office of the Dean of Students (DOS) also coordinates the efforts of multiple offices whose work involves support for students. These include Admissions and Records, Financial Aid, Academic Advising, Counseling, Career Services, Services for Students with Disabilities, the Testing Center, TRiO Programs, Student Life , and College Connections/Enrollment Management. Each of these areas has its own website linked above where additional information may be found.


To Report a Threat

College of the Mainland seeks to foster a climate of safety that requires the involvement of all community members. To facilitate this process, all faculty, staff, students, and other community members are encouraged to report observed behavior that warrants concern for the safety of the community and/or the safety of an individual. The Threat Assessment Team (TAT) reviews reports and gathers information to make the most informed decisions about how best to intervene.
