Administrative History

The positions of the Dean of Men and the Dean of Women were replaced by the Dean of Students in 1990. The Dean of Students has a particular responsibility for life in Victoria’s residences, as the senior administrative officer, and promotes close ties between student residents and the University. In addition, the Dean is responsible for student government, residence admissions, room assignments, disciplinary systems and functions related to the quality of student life. The Dean works closely with the Residence Life Coordinator and the Dons. Decisions of the Dean on matters of residence procedure, policy, admissions, discipline, and the like, can be appealed to the President of Victoria. As well, the Dean is required to be a liaison with all levels of student government and student organizations.
