As your new dean of students, it is my honor to welcome you to a new academic year at CU Boulder!

Dean of Students Sandy JonesLike some of you, I just moved to Colorado in August. My last position was with the University of California, Irvine, where I held several Student Affairs leadership roles working with undergraduate and graduate student governments, student media and student organizations. I am very excited to be here and be a part of the Boulder community.

Whether you are just beginning your graduate studies here or you are working towards finishing your program this year, we are glad you are here. Graduate students are a critical component to the CU Boulder campus community. Between your research, involvement on campus and interactions with undergraduate students, CU Boulder would not be the same campus without you.

As we begin the 2018–19 academic year, I want you to know I am here to support you, advocate for you and connect you to the right resources to help you succeed. From working with our graduate student career development advisors to supporting your health and wellness, there are many resources available to you as a student. These comprehensive support services are here to help you navigate campus, stay healthy, find opportunities to meet new people and ultimately support you in your academic journey. I encourage you to use them.

Remember that we all stand behind you—your family, friends, supporters and the entire CU Boulder community—and are pulling for your success. We hope you have a great and productive semester!
