Dean of Students
My name is Sherry Nevins and I am the Dean of Students on campus. As we begin another academic year I want to remind you that there are many resources available to you on campus to assist you in your academic, social, and personal development. I encourage you to seek them out and utilize them. We are fortunate to have a solid team of dedicated professionals here to assist you in your academic journey.
The Dean of Students office is just one of many resources available. Our office plays a critical role in helping students navigate the campus environment and strives to promote a holistic learning experience by providing programs and services that develop students intellectually, socially, and ethically. Our staff advocates for students and assists them in making positive connections with faculty, staff, and other students. We also provide support for a variety of student concerns, including illness, academic trouble, and other personal emergencies. Please view our office mission and vision statements below.
The University of Wisconsin–Platteville is a vibrant, engaging, and active campus where we strive daily to foster a community of achievement and respect. I encourage you to visit the Dean of Students office so that we may help you enrich your college experience and achieve your fullest potential.
Whether we are the first office you come to for assistance or the last place you think to call, our staff is here to help make every day a great day to be a Pioneer.
Best wishes for an engaging and productive year,
Dean of Students
