Students will always be the heart of our University. We welcome our students as our partners to create successful learning, rewarding experiences and engaging and inclusive communities. The Office of the Dean of Students is an accessible, responsive, fair and impartial point of contact through which all Deakin students can provide feedback or express concerns about any aspect of their university experience.

We aim to increase student-centred practices and decisions at Deakin, and use student input to refine University operations, particularly in relation to teaching and learning (including student feedback via eVALUate and other student surveys), academic integrity and progress, and promoting respectful student conduct.
