Off-Campus Student Life (OCSL), a program of the Dean of Students Office, provides hospitality, information, programs, resources, and services to all students with an emphasis on commuters, non-traditional students, and students who live in the immediate neighborhood. With the goal of providing a full campus experience for both undergraduate and graduate students, our services develop community, success in academic and personal development, and opportunities for cultural awareness and leadership development.
Dean of Students Office Mission
The Dean of Students Office (DOS) supports the personal development, academic success, and retention of students. We work collaboratively with members of our University community to promote student learning and success.
We are committed to our Catholic identity and our mission to advance the common good. Our university values of antiracism, equity, and inclusion are embedded in our work and we advocate for the inherent human dignity of every person.
We believe every member of the St. Thomas community has the right to feel welcome and safe and we work to create a welcoming environment for all members of our community.
