All nonacademic services for students are handled by the Student Affairs Deanship. Our main purpose is to promote the development and wellness of all students through multiple strategies so that the Schools’ mission is achieved. Policies and procedures have been set in motion and are reviewed to assist us in: identifying potencial candidates and guaranteeing equal opportunities; ensure an objective admission process; comply with FERPA regulations in the handling of student records; communicate and provide guidance in financial aid services and debt management; provide continuous support through accessibility services, confidential personal and academic counseling; and ensure student extracurricular participation in student led interest groups. Services are disseminated and assessed so that necessary adjustments can de set in place when necessary.

In maintaining a safe learning environmental that fosters students’ wellness, SJBSM has a no tolerance policy regarding sexual misconduct in all of its manifestations as stated in the Executive Order 2018-04 Harassment and Discrimination Grievance Policy and Procedures. The Associate Dean for Student Affairs serves as the Title IX Coordinator, assisting students in a diligent manner to provide them with the all the support when informing any type of harassment.

The Deanship also assists students with issues concerning mistreatment, to ensure a safe learning environment. (Refer to Executive Order 2006-06 Policy related to Mistreatment of Students). We have an open door policy where students are encouraged to come see us at the first sign of these and/or other situations that may arise during studies; and an anonymous line in the event that they wish to maintain anonymity during the filing of a complaint.

Feel free to reach out to us should you face any challenge. We are here for you!
