Dean of Students
The Dean of Students Office acts as a resource, referral agent, and advocate for students so they may live and learn successfully throughout their Wentworth experience. Whether students need advice or support on academic or personal matters, the Dean of Students Office helps students access resources and solutions. The Dean of Students Office also serves as a resource for families, community members related to student issues or concerns. The Dean of Students Office is located in Rubenstein 003.
Student Support Services
Recognizing that many students may experience personal challenges and difficulties during their time at Wentworth, students may receive support and advocacy from a member of the Student Support team. Student Support Specialists work with students who are experiencing challenges with college transition, physical or mental health, personal or family difficulties, and/or financial and/or basic needs insecurity. Student Support Specialists also work directly with students who’ve experienced time away from campus for medical and/or mental health reasons to help facilitate a successful transition back to campus.
The CARE is a campus-wide team of appointed university employees trained to identify, assess, and respond to concerning and/or disruptive behaviors by students, faculty, and staff that may present a risk to the health or safety of the university or its members. The CARE Team is chaired by the Dean of Students. Members of the Wentworth community are encouraged to submit non-emergency referrals via form found at https://wit.edu/about/reporting. CARE referrals are not to be used in an emergency. If you have a concern for someone’s safety, call Public Safety at 617-989-4444 or 911 immediately.
Student Conduct and Restorative Practices
The Student Code of Conduct contributes to the development of the student and promotion of personal integrity and self-responsibility. Students enrolling at Wentworth become citizens of this community and are entitled to enjoy the privileges and assume the responsibilities associated with the affiliation. As partners in the success of our students, in some cases, families will be notified if their student violates the Student Code of Conduct. The conduct and conflict resolution process provides both formal and informal options for students to resolve conflicts that help them re-engage with their academic and personal lives at Wentworth.
