Working with the Dean of Harvard College are the twelve Allston Burr Resident Deans, one in each of the Houses. These Resident Deans are directly responsible for the academic and personal welfare of undergraduates. The Associate Dean of Students and the four Resident Deans of First-Year Students have the same responsibilities for first-year students. The Coordinator of Transfer and Visiting Student Programs fulfills such responsibilities for visiting undergraduates.
Whenever instructors have a concern about an undergraduate, they are urged to contact the appropriate Resident Dean. Students’ House affiliations or first-year status are indicated on course lists. A list of Resident Deans may be found in the FAS Directory.
