For Faculty

A Bryn Mawr Faculty Guide For Assisting Students in Need

The Undergraduate Dean's Office is charged with overseeing the academic and personal well-being of undergraduates at the College.  Faculty and deans work together on matters ranging from curriculum and registration to the problems encountered by individual students. In order to facilitate communication regarding individual students, the course roster function of BIONIC lists each student's dean. 

Seven deans serve as primary academic advisers for students.  We divide our time between working with our advisees and collaborating on various college programs.
