Student Support Services

Student Support Services

At MWCC, our mission is to help students succeed. We recognize that each student comes to our campus with their own set of unique strengths and challenges. The Student Support Services team is here to help students play to their strengths, and overcome their challenges as they make important life and curricular choices necessary to achieve their academic goals.

Dean of Students Office

In support of student learning and success, the Dean of Students promotes the growth and development of all students through campus-wide programming, one-on-one meetings, and the delivery of appropriate support services. We are here to answer questions, advocate on behalf of students, foster a safe, inclusive learning environment, and mentor/advise students on the community college experience.
