About the Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office is one of the major organizations within the Division of Student Success. The Dean of Students Office provides a myriad of services, programs and experiences for undergraduate and graduate students. With a focus on students, we strive to complement your academic experience with programs that promote wellness, identity development, cultural fluency, leadership development, academic success, and volunteerism.

Our Dean of Students, Garrett Naiman, is committed to your academic success and encourages you to connect with the services, programs and resources that are available via the office. Whether you are seeking support for basic needs, interested in planning an event at the Quarry Amphitheater, or looking for volunteer opportunities in the local community, consider the Dean of Students Office as an important partner to your UCSC student experience.
