Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office identifies and addresses student concerns and crises. Through the Panthers Care initiative, they provide 1-on-1 care meetings, educational outreach to the university community, and connect students with campus and community resources. Use their referral system to connect a student with support and resources.

Services offered include:

  • An online referral system for faculty, staff, and students to help identify students in distress
  • Outreach to students who self-identify or are identified by others as needing additional support
  • Education for the FIU community about bystander intervention, interpersonal violence prevention, and identifying students in distress
  • A network of campus resources that are available to assist and support students
  • Panthers Care

    Panthers Care is a Dean of Students Office initiative that promotes on-campus safety and belonging by creating a culture of care through educational outreach and assisting students in distress. Together we can create a community where students, faculty, and staff support one another and speak up on behalf of those who may need assistance.

  • Refer a student

    Students, faculty, and staff can share information about a student demonstrating concerning behavior or requesting additional support.
