Message from the Dean

Dear students, alumnae/i, family, faculty and staff, 

I am honored and pleased to serve as Dean of the College. As the Dean of the College, I am dedicated and committed to providing our students with a high quality applied arts and sciences education to help them develop practical skills to meet the challenges that await them in their career and communities.

In the role of Dean, I am responsible for the coordination of academic affairs. This involves working with Faculty on issues related to our academic courses and major/minor programs, and working with the members of our important academic support services – the Brown Learning Resource Center and the Annenberg Library. I also work closely with Student Affairs, the Office of Enrollment Services, the ELI staff, and the Kings College staff to integrate and strengthen the entire Pine Manor College learning community.

I am committed to helping the Pine Manor Community to work together so that we achieve our personal and professional goals.

I invite you to stop by my office in Ferry with any questions or concerns. Also feel free to contact any of the key people listed below.

~ Dr. Diane Mello-Goldner, Dean of the College
