► Mission Statement
The Dean of Students (DOS) serves as a critical support structure dedicated to the intellectual, creative, personal, and social development of FIT students. Through thoughtful and intentional planning, the Dean of Students fosters academic and social partnerships within the FIT community, establishes expectations and sets community standards leading the way towards enriching the overall student experience and striving for FIT student success.
► Community Standards
Creating an empowering and safe space for members of the campus community is an essential tenet of the Dean of Students. To that end the FIT Code of Student Conduct serves as a guide for an established set of expectations and community standards. All students are expected to read and adhere to the Code of Student Conduct. The Dean of Students Office ensures that this policy is appropriately implemented, and will oversee the adjudication of any conduct code violations should they occur. The student conduct process is restorative in nature, and while we take severity of the incident into account when deciding sanctions, most violations are handled by educating students on the best ways to resolve conflict and negative behavior.
