Dean of Students
Dear Columbus State University Students:
Student engagement and involvement in our rich and varied student life and activity offerings can make your experience here more rewarding and substantial. The Office of the Dean of Students would encourage you to cultivate new friends, attend each other's plays, concerts, ball games and presentations throughout the year, while learning to appreciate the value of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints of your fellow students. Columbus State values and supports our students' rights to freedom of expression and the tenets of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. We encourage you to express yourself, and engage in healthy debates concerning your own ideas and those of others in our university community.
A primary goal of the Office of the Dean of Students is to support and facilitate a safe campus environment and higher education experience for our students, faculty, and staff. We encourage you to cultivate and maintain high standards of civility and conduct that are consistent with academic, social, and professional success. We also encourage you to be an active participant in ensuring campus safety. You may have heard the saying, "If you see something, say something!" We encourage you to support campus safety by "Stepping Up", and being a part of our bystander intervention training promoting support of potential victims of sexual violence and helping to prevent other forms of unsafe, prohibited activities. You can help make a difference in the lives of your fellow students and CSU community members.
As always, if you are aware of any emergency or immediate threats to individual or campus safety, call 911 or our CSU Police Department right away at 706-507-8911. If you have concerns about an individual's behavior or condition, you may also submit a Create Care report by clicking the link in the link in the list of services below.
