Academic Dean's Office

Alexander Hall

The Dean of College's office is at the heart of Pomona's mission, dedicated to the shaping and sustaining of its intellectual life. We support the faculty in their teaching and research, administer the academic program and help the College explore new instructional initiatives. We also support cooperative programs with our counterparts at the other Claremont Colleges.

On this website, you can find information about applying for research and teaching grants, planning sabbaticals, recruiting new faculty, and a host of other topics. Learn more about the Dean's Staff and find out who we are and who can help you with what. And we encourage you not just to explore the web page, but also to call, e-mail or, best of all, stop by to see us on the second floor of Alexander Hall.

Important dates, events, and meeting times for chairs can be found here. The calendar is updated regularly.

Academic Advising

Academic advising at Pomona begins before students register for courses for the first time and continues throughout the undergraduate experience. The Academic Dean’s Office coordinates initial advising assignments for all incoming Pomona students and collaborates with other campus offices to make advising resources available to faculty advisors and students alike. The Academic Dean’s Office also assists faculty advisors and students with questions about advising, advising resources, and advising assignments.
