Greetings from the Dean of Students Office! The Dean of Students Office (located in Blum Union 228) works to support the health, safety, engagement, and success of all our Missouri Western State University students.  

As we are preparing for Commencement and closing of the Spring 2022 semester, there are several great reminders from the Dean of Students team areas:

  • The Campus Cupboard in the Dean of Students Office has expanded operation hours, thanks to a microgrant provided by Swipe Out Hunger. The Campus Cupboard, which provides free food assistance for those students experiencing hunger and food insecurity, is now open one evening a week on Tuesdays from 4:30-6 p.m. as well as two Sunday afternoons per month from 3-5 p.m. Appointments can also be made for additional times of need outside of the daily operational hours.
  • Encourage your student to stay on top of their studies! The Center for Academic Support provides free tutoring for all Missouri Western State University students through the end of finals week for this semester. It’s not too late for your student to work with a tutor to polish those final projects. The CAS will also offer tutoring by appointment for summer semester courses.
  • The Center for Diversity & Inclusion is looking forward to celebrating graduating international and multicultural students at the Multicultural Graduation Ceremony on Friday, May 6 at 3:30 p.m.

The Counseling Center continues to provide services to support the mental health and wellbeing of our Missouri Western students, offering both in-person and telemental health appointments. The Counseling Center offers appointment reminders via email and text messages to remind students of their upcoming appointments to support them in their busy lives.
