Academic Deans’ Offices

 ^ TOP

The educational experience of students consists of both academic efforts in the classroom and developmental opportunities through Student Affairs. The academic deans and the dean of students provide the leadership through their respective colleges and division toward an optimum educational experience for students.

The offices of the dean of Misher College of Arts and Sciences, dean of Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, and dean of Samson College of Health Sciences provide information and direction concerning academic and related matters such as course assignments, approval for summer courses, and information and applications pertaining to selected advanced degree programs and admissions tests. All student academic matters are channeled through these offices, which also issue a list of those students attaining sufficient academic averages to qualify for the Dean’s List.

Office of Student Conduct and Grievances

The University of the Sciences student conduct system contributes to the mission and goals of the University by holding students accountable for their actions in an environment that is fair, just, and unbiased.

The conduct process is designed to be educational in nature and exists to protect the interests of students and the community. When students engage in prohibited conduct, the student conduct process is used to uphold the Student Conduct Policy and to address behavior not in accordance with our policies. If a student is found responsible for a policy violation, the Office of Student Conduct and Grievances will work with the student to explore the cause of the action and address any underlining challenges or concerns. When necessary and appropriate, sanctions will be assigned to address students’ moral and ethical decision-making and to help bring behavior into accord with our community expectations. The aim is to facilitate the necessary personal and professional development of students so that they demonstrate academic, personal, and professional behavior of the highest integrity.

Detailed information regarding the Student Conduct Policy and procedures can be found in the Student Handbook. If you believe a student has violated the Student Conduct Policy or if you have questions regarding the conduct process, please contact the Office of Student Conduct and Grievances at 215.596.8844.
