Student Affairs and Office of the Executive Associate Dean
The Executive Associate Dean's (EAD) office and the Office of Student Affairs is a busy and demanding department with responsibilities that cut across all departments and units of The Fletcher School. The EAD serves as the School's chief operating officer and represents the School in the absence of the Dean. The EAD's office has School wide responsibility for financial and facilities management, personnel management and human resources, administrative services, and student affairs. The office works closely with the Dean and Academic Dean, the staff directors of the major operating units of the school (i.e., the senior staff), and the faculty to support the School's teaching, research, and outreach missions. The office works closely with many operating units of Tufts, and often interacts with external constituencies in higher education, government and international organization, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. The EAD also serves as Dean of Student Affairs.
The Student Affairs office, managed daily by the Director, is responsible for all aspects of the student experience at Fletcher with special emphasis on enhancing the total student (academic and co-curricular) experience at the School in order to provide an optimal environment for learning and professional development.

Specific tasks include, but are not limited to, addressing student concerns, complaints, and grievances, coordinating a select number of external scholarship/fellowship opportunities as well as competitively awarded internal research grants, advising and supporting the Student Council and 50+ student organizations in the realm of student activities and student life, supervising and managing a variety of annual student activities including five cultural nights, a weekly social hour, weekly lunches for students with the EAD, an intensive week long orientation program, and many other annual or regular events, including the management and supervision of several large conferences with high profile guests.
