Office of the Assistant Dean
The Office of the Assistant Dean is located in Mellon Hall.
The Assistant Dean (who is a tutor) is often the first person to whom students turn when they have a problem. The Assistant Dean works closely with the Director of Student Services to help students learn how to live together in a small academic community. They enforce the rules that help keep the College activities functioning smoothly and vigorously. Their office is the source of many of the rules and decisions that affect student life, and although some of their work is disciplinary, it is always meant to serve the primary aim of the College as a community of learning.
Assistant Dean: Susan Paalman, 410-626-2512
Director of Student Services: Taylor Waters, 410-626-2512
Students with Disabilities
Students who would like to request accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act should submit the Disabilities Registration Form to the Assistant Dean, Ms Susan Paalman. Both Ms Paalman and the Director of Student Services, Ms Taylor Waters, respond for the College to these requests.
The Disabilities Registration Form must be filled out by the student making the request; it can be submitted on line or printed and mailed to the address on the form. If you cannot include an electronic signature with an on line submission, you will receive a request for confirmation; we must receive a reply to this before we can act on your request. The form is accompanied by two sets of guidelines for submitting documentation in support of requests for accommodation.
Suggested submission dates appear on the form. You may submit a request for accommodation at any time; because some requests take longer to respond to than others, we suggest that you make your request as early as possible.
