Dean’s Office

At the University of Richmond, the College dean’s offices are present in the lives of the students from orientation through graduation. We are committed to helping students engage, persist, and succeed in the classroom, in-co-curricular activities, and in life beyond the University.

The dean’s office staff is deeply interested in your academic and personal success. We will help you in the difficult moments, we will celebrate your successes, and we will challenge you to make sound decisions. We want to support you as you become the best version of yourself and become prepared to contribute to and succeed in a complex world.

Richmond College was founded as a men’s college, and we have a long tradition of educating men at the University. Today, we see our mission as challenging masculinity – meaning that we will critically examine the perception of men and masculinities in our society and its impact on individuals and our community – and supporting our students in the development of their own authentic, personal definition of who they are.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or want to share any information about yourself that you would like us to know, so that we can fully support you. If you identify with a different gender and/or beyond the gender binary, please contact me so that we can ensure that we are meeting your needs.

I look forward to meeting with you and working with you during your time at the University.

With Spider Pride,

Joseph Boehman, Ed.D.
Dean of Richmond College
