Make the most of your Southwestern Christian University experience by involving yourself in the many opportunities that SCU provides from the classroom to the athletic field; from campus productions to campus clubs; from spiritual formation to faith in action trips; while also forming and building great friendships with other students and strengthening your relationship with Christ.

Important things to do:
Read the SCU Student Handbook.
Download the Spiritual Life App (Presence Software).
Engage in the Campus Community by attending events.
Go to class.
Join a club or ministry group.
Go on a mission or ministry trip.

Welcome From Your Dean of Students


welcomepagedeanpicture.jpgHello Eagles! Thank you very much for choosing to make Southwestern Christian University YOUR University. I came here as a freshman in the Fall of 2010 and never left. I have experienced SCU in many different departments and settings over the years and it is truly an honor to be your Dean of Students. SCU is a community with a home and family atmosphere where you will develop relationships and skills that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. During your time here, you will not only be nurtured, but you will also be pushed and challenged to grow. I am here to serve as a resource for you when you need help along the way.

My office is on the first floor of the Learning and Living Center next to the soda machine.  As your Dean of Students, I wear several metaphorical hats. I am the campus disciplinarian but I am also heavily involved in Student Life. My role is to support Student Life and serve as a resource to make sure that the needs of the student body are being heard and being met. Don’t know who to ask about something? I don’t mind helping you figure out who to get in contact with.


Things I can help you with:

  • Obtaining a replacement Student ID
  • Filing an official student complaint
  • Getting you in touch with the appropriate department about an issue
  • Getting more information about resources available to students
  • Questions about the handbook
  • Need a place to vent?
