Dean of Students Office

Greetings from the NMT Dean of Students,

Image of Dean of Students Peter Phaiah, PhDOn behalf of the New Mexico Tech Office of Student Life and the Dean of Students Office (DOSO), I would like to encourage Tech students to take advantage of our advocacy and Student Services@Tech. The overall mission of the DOSO is to engage students in their holistic education, growth, and development through co-curricular enrichment opportunities. We are committed to building and maintaining a vibrant community which is inclusive and open to new and differing experiences and viewpoints. The DOSO works with all students however, Dr. Aly El Osery, the Dean of Graduate Studies, specializes in our graduate student needs.

Also, the Dean of Students Office also serves as a resource network for faculty, staff, students and their families in times of need. Life doesn’t always go as planned, and our office can help provide guidance and advice to students experiencing challenges or a crisis in their lives. These issues can range from unresolved roommate conflicts, complaints, concerns or grievances, and University policy violations. Our goal is to treat students with dignity, and provide educational interventions as appropriate to assist students in accomplishing their aspirations, and successfully persist to graduation. Whatever the issue, the DOSO is a good place to begin seeking out advice, information and services.

Please feel free to contact us if we can be of service. Our number one priority is to make the student experience at Tech a powerful and enriching one.
