When I arrived at Bennington, and as a way to get to know students, I hosted Dinner with Dean
Xenia every Thursday dinner this term. I met a number of you to just chat, and I also had the
opportunity to hear inquiries and concerns of either a personal and/or institutional nature. For the
Spring term, I am ready to try a new platform to garner direct student advice and feedback and
am creating a dean’s advisory group. This group will require the time commitment of a monthly
meeting - possibly more - and will be determined by application process with Student Life staff.
The exact number of students in this group will depend upon the candidate pool. I am hoping
to attract students from all walks of life at Bennington to discuss student issues and concerns
including diversity and inclusion, health and well being, housing, and other aspects of student
involvement. Please share this information and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to
be placed on a list of interest.
As always, please email me directly with any questions at email@example.com
