As you begin to blaze your academic trail, the Boise State Dean of Students (DOS) is always on hand to help you achieve success. From navigating campus to juggling a demanding schedule to working out a problem, DOS offers services, support and resources.

The Dean of Students, Chris Wuthrich, serves as your advocate. He and the staff believe it’s important to foster personal, intellectual and social development because college is much more than going to school. Their goal is to help you succeed in everything.

DOS also provides direct services, including courtesy absence notices for students dealing with health issues or other emergencies. Departments include:

  • Student Rights and Responsibilities: supports academic success by enforcing the student Code of Conduct and oversees student grievances, academic dishonesty, sexual- or discrimination-based misconduct, and the drug and alcohol policy.
  • Disability Resource Center: coordinates accommodations between students and faculty.
  • Veteran Services: provides information and procedures relevant to all education benefits via the Department of Veterans Affairs.
  • CARE Team (Campus Assessment, Resource, and Education): provides well-rounded support for students, faculty and staff in distress. Representatives from many departments provide assistance when concerning, disruptive or threatening behavior has been reported.
  • Case Management: provides early intervention and support to students experiencing difficult situations; coordinates services on and off campus to help reduce tension.
  • Impact Scholars Program: supports former foster youth to obtain a college education at Boise State.
  • Student Emergency Fund: provides financial assistance to students experiencing unanticipated temporary financial hardship resulting from an emergency or crisis situation.
