Metro Campus Dean of Students

The Office of the Dean of Students serves as an advocate for students and is responsible for overall coordination of disciplinary matters, student government advisement, student handbook, orientation, honors convocation, and commencement.

The Office of the Dean of Students deals primarily with non-academic matters. Generally, students should contact their academic deans for academic issues. However, the Dean of Students Office is available to respond to all aspects of students’ needs and should be used to mediate and resolve difficulties. All students, their families and other supporters are welcome to contact the office for general assistance and direction.

Spring at Metro

Dear FDU Metro Students,

I hope this finds you and your family healthy and well. This past fall semester was unlike any other; we are so proud of each of you for persevering and successfully completing your semester. While we all wish the start of the spring semester would allow us to return to business as usual, unfortunately we must continue to exercise caution as a community. None of us know exactly what the future will bring, but I know that our community will continue to support each other as we navigate these uncharted waters.  

Should you need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here for you. 

All my best, 

Dr. Uchenna Baker, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
