Dean of Students
It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as Dean of Students and as the chief advocate for students. Massasoit is a vibrant learning community that strives to meet the needs of our diverse student body. We recognize that community college students come to college with widely differing goals. Whether you’re a student on our Brockton, Canton or Middleborough campus, a transfer student, or a student earning a degree or certificate your success is our number one priority.
While pursuing these goals, you may be faced with challenges. Sometimes these challenges may seem insurmountable. In approaching these challenges, you should be aware that there are many people and services at Massasoit that are dedicated to helping you through these situations and whose purpose is to enhance your ability to succeed.
I have the privilege of providing leadership to many areas responsible for co-curricular learning. The dedicated professionals within these departments facilitate out-of-class experiences that help students engage in their academic program of study. In cooperation with the faculty, these departments hold a shared vision of student learning and an unwavering commitment to your success. Please feel free to contact me or any member of our staff if we can be of assistance. We are here to ensure that your experience is an exceptional one and that “Your Success Begins Here!”

Dean of Students
Student care is the top priority of Massasoit‘s Dean of Students office. Our office is here to assist students with information and referrals to campus resources. We strive to help students in the resolution of problems or concerns, and promote initiatives that address students’ care, needs, and success. We also serve as a resource for families, faculty, and staff in supporting student success at Massasoit.
As a student, you are an active and vital part of the Massasoit educational community. Our community is dedicated to protecting the freedom of individuals to inquire, study, evaluate, question, and gain new levels of knowledge and understanding. Massasoit has put these specific expectations in place that define acceptable behavior necessary to protect individual freedoms and ensure responsible citizenship.
As a member of the Massasoit community, it is your responsibility to understand and adhere to the codes and policies that govern and prescribe acceptable student behavior.
It is also your right as a member of the Massasoit community to know what you should do if you believe another person has behaved inappropriately toward you.
The Dean of Students website has information you need to know in order to both uphold your behavioral responsibilities as a student and to report behavior that you believe has infringed on your rights within the community.
