Our Team

Each DSS staff member brings a unique, specialized set of skills to the office and, by extension, our student population.

We represent a broad knowledge base covering areas ranging from administrative expertise to academic training and cultural outreach.

We are very much looking forward to working with you, and we welcome the opportunity to address any questions that you might have about our office or the university as a whole. Students can identify their DSS point of contact by college or school affiliation.

Email general inquiries to [email protected] or call (202) 994-8250. You may also schedule a in-person or virtual appointment with a DSS team member:
