Dean of Students Services and COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, in support of the Governor of Wyoming's order, and to preserve the wellbeing of our staff, the Dean of Students Office and CSIL staff are working remotely and as many of our services as possible will be offered in a remote capacity. Both DOS and CSIL will be open in person and offering some services in person for the Fall semester.

At this time, most of our staff are available via email; students and UW employees may be able to request Zoom appointments. If you have not downloaded Zoom to your device or computer, please consider doing so. University staff and students can download Zoom here:

Return to Campus Commitment

The University of Wyoming community has shown incredible strength and compassion over the past few months. This commitment to supporting and protecting one another will continue to be essential as we come back together on campus. Our commitment to upholding the UW Community Standards – the five guiding principles for our students, faculty and staff – is more important than ever. These principles uniquely apply to our return to campus this fall:


We, as faculty, staff and students, recognize we all have a role to play to protect our greater campus community. We understand and appreciate how our decisions and actions impact others. Community members will take all necessary precautions to minimize the incidence and spread of COVID- 19 on campus.


We conduct ourselves with honor and honest even in the most challenging times. We understand the need to adhere to safety guidelines and following protocols. The true test is what we choose to do when no one else is present to hold us accountable.

Social Consciousness

We respect the dignity of every person is essential for creating and sustaining a flourishing University community. We understand each member of our community may be facing distinct impacts during this unprecedented time. We will discourage and challenge those whose actions may be harmful to the welfare of others.


We commit to showing positive regard for each other and for the community, especially in times of uncertainty and change. This means we will appropriately engage with one another to communicate and to acknowledge what is needed to reduce the risk on campus.


We acknowledge we are accountable for our learning, personal behaviors, and future wellbeing. All UW community members should use sound judgment and take personal responsibility for our actions.

UW’s Community Standards reflect our collective commitment to our great campus community. It will take every community member doing our part to create a safer environment for everyone. We all have a responsibility to stay up to date on changes. UW’s COVID Policy will evolve and we expect it will be revised throughout the academic year as understanding of the virus deepens, best practices change, and therapeutic measures become available. Updates will be announced, and each community member must stay informed of these changes as they occur.
