Association Deans

Association Deans are assigned to each student based on your first-year housing assignment or based on whether you are an Echols Scholar, Student Athlete or transfer student. You will remain with the same Association Dean as long as you are a student in the College of Arts & Sciences.

Your Association Dean can help:

  • advise you on academic matters such as getting into classes, faculty advisors, and instructors
  • establish your academic plan
  • refer you to appropriate University of Virginia agencies and offices for non-academic matters, such as health and other issues.
