Dean of Students (Waterloo Campus)
Leanne Holland Brown has been the Dean of Students at the Waterloo campus since September 2010.
Unlike Academic Deans responsible for a specific faculty, the role of the Dean of Students relates more to student support, student safety and student success. Whether through her connection to individual students or involvement in policy changes and program development, the Dean of Students strives to create and enhance conditions for success and positive well-being for Laurier students. The Dean of Students Office has oversight for student conduct, student life & engagement, student wellness and Aboriginal student support.
In her role, Leanne serves as a resource for students, as well as for faculty and staff. Leanne lends leadership and guidance with Orientation programming, financial wellness, mental health and other key areas affecting students personal and academic success. Other initiatives, such as the Blue Folder project, Mental Health First Aid and safeTALK training ensure education and support for faculty and staff in understanding today's student, as well as supporting students in distress.
Students are encouraged to connect with the wonderful variety of student support services available on campus. Students requiring elevated levels of support or coordinated care should connect with the Dean of Students Office. Follow the Dean of Students on Twitter @DeanLeanne
