The Dean of Students Office has a strong commitment to fostering student development, particularly in the acquisition of personal values, which create a respect for individual difference, cultural diversity and equal opportunity.  Dean of Students Kip Kussman and Assistant Dean Betty Albrecht strive to meet the varied needs of all students through advocacy program support, advising, and general counseling.

We pride ourselves on being an office where upon contact students and families will have an answer to their question, a solution to their problem, or an effective referral to the office or professional who can answer their question.

A Welcome Letter from the Dean

Here at MSOE there are multiple aspects to your college experience both in and outside the classroom that are invaluable to your development as a person and a professional.

We at MSOE pride ourselves on the opportunities our students have to explore their passions, pursue new adventures and make lasting connections. Whether its traveling to Munich with your peers over New Year’s eve, raising money to help your favorite charity, or going disc golfing on the course you helped design – Students at MSOE are encouraged to engage in their community at a local and global level.

The Office of Student Life provides students all the resources and support needed to make the transition from high school to college as seamless and exciting as possible.

We welcome you to join our community of students.  Together, you will discover more about your interests, your talents and your dreams than you ever thought possible.
