Office of the Assistant Dean for Students

The Office of the Assistant Dean for Students supports all UNH Franklin Pierce Law students in their pursuit to learn and be successful. We are available if you have an academic or personal question, problem, or concern. We advocate for students, and support extracurricular activities, as well as oversee orientation, wellness programs, and commencement. 

In addition, we assist students with personal matters, students with disabilities, short term medical concerns, Title IX matters, and family emergencies. We can help connect you to useful resources in the community and in the university.
