The Online Renovation

Hello, and welcome to the new blog from the Dean of Students at the University of Alberta!

It's part of our big, ongoing project to renovate the online space for student services at the U of A. We're starting with the Dean of Students (DoS) site and working out from there.

There's lots to do and lots to talk about when it comes to student services at the U of A.
In a nutshell, the DoS portfolio consists of centrally-delivered student services, but we're connected with programs and services across the University that focus on students.

Most of our focus is aimed at current students at the U of A, both undergraduate and graduate. There's more than 39,000 students as of today, and it's our job to help them succeed. We want every student have an enriching, empowering experience at the University of Alberta, both inside and outside the classroom. Our ultimate aim is for all students to be safe, healthy, and successful.

So, stay tuned for more updates coming along; we'll be posting regularly here, and you can find us on Facebook and Twitter. There are certain to be growing pains along the way, but gradually, we'll grow and improve the online 'ecosystem' for students at the U of A.

Let the renovation begin!
