At the College of William and Mary "The Office of the Dean of Students assists all students, graduate and undergraduate, from their initial orientation to the College through successful completion of their academic and personal goals. The Dean of Students staff advocates for student needs, acts as liaison between students and academic departments, and provides supports and challenges designed to enhance personal growth, as well as a sense of personal authority and responsibility in each student." This position ended when the Dean of Men and Dean of Women positions became active. When they were disbanded in 1973, the Dean on Students took over their roles.
