The Assistant Dean is responsible for all aspects of student life and is often the first person to whom students turn when they encounter problems. Because the Assistant Dean is a tutor, he or she is able to offer advice about matters related to the classroom and to academic matters in general. Working directly with the Assistant Dean is the Director of Student Services, who oversees areas of campus life such as housing and student activities. Both help students learn how to live together in a small academic community and both are available talk over issues related to campus life, health or safety, or personal matters. They may also refer students to both on and off campus resources. Together the Assistant Dean and Director of Student Services help to uphold the standards of conduct the St. John's Community sets for itself.
The Assistant Dean is the Title IX Coordinator for the College. The policies and protocols concerning sexual misconduct can be found in the Student Handbook, Appendices I - III.
Students who would like to request accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act should submit the Disabilities Registration Form to the Assistant Dean, Mr. Walpin.
The Disabilities Registration Form must be filled out by the student making the request; it can be submitted on line or printed and mailed to the address on the form. If you cannot include an electronic signature with an on line submission, you will receive a request for confirmation; we must receive a reply to this before we can act on your request. The form is accompanied by two sets of guidelines for submitting documentation in support of requests for accommodation.
Suggested submission dates appear on the form. You may submit a request for accommodation at any time; because some requests take longer to respond to than others, we suggest that you make your request as early as possible.
Please contact either Mr. Walpin if you have any questions about this matter.
