Role of the Junior Dean

As Junior Dean, Heather holds dual responsibility for students’ non-academic discipline and welfare, and also serves on a number of College committees. She acts as a liaison between the student body and the administration, and encourages students to contact her with any and all of their concerns – she is happy to provide assistance or refer to other College officers who are better able to help.
