Student Conduct

The Dean of Students Office creates a culture of care for students, their families, and faculty and staff by providing exemplary programs and services designed to enhance students’ academic and personal success. We derive success plans and provide ongoing support for students in distress dealing with a variety of issues. We help students navigate complex University process such as withdrawals and petitions. We also serve to address a broad range of complaints either through directly assisting the student involved to resolve the issue, working with the student to contact the appropriate personnel, or referring the student to resources or offices that can directly address the issue. Follow-up is provided to the student until the situation is resolved.

Areas within the Dean of Students Office include, Student Conduct, Advocacy and Mediation, CSUF Cares and Behavioral Intervention Team. Whether we are the first office students come to for assistance or the last place they think to call, our staff is here to help students be their best advocate and have a successful Titan Experience.

The Office of Campus Engagement stimulates and encourages social, cultural, intellectual and recreational interaction by providing learning experiences outside of the classroom. Our office offers a multitude of opportunities to become involved and active on our campus.

All students are encouraged to get involved in University life and take full advantage of the many opportunities Cal State Fullerton has to offer. In order to maximize the college learning experience, every student on campus should be involved in at least one activity outside of the classroom.  In order to assist in this effort, Campus Engagement helps students get connected to these meaningful co-curricular experiences.
