Dean of Students

The Office of the Dean of Students at Concordia University Texas is student-focused and serves as a resource for students from new student orientation to Commencement. We are here to assist students in their quest to become resilient problem solvers, reminding them of their relationship to Christ and importance within the community and beyond. We aim to provide student support to improve wellness through intervention, community clubs, activities and programs so the student body can achieve the highest level.
