Welcome! As the Assistant Vice Chancellor of Student Life & Leadership and Dean of Students, I oversee a fantastic group of departments that make up the cluster of Student Life & Leadership. As educators, we take great pride in engaging leadership and character development in all of our students. We provide a wide range of involvement opportunities for students to grow, develop, and challenge themselves. UCI has a rich history of promoting student leadership through diverse student experiences and our staff work hard to cultivate opportunities for educational growth.
If you want to keep up with all of the great programs and events going on at UCI, I encourage you to follow me on Twitter @DeanRameen. As an Anteater alumnus, I love what I do and am always looking for that moment when we can connect through a simple "fist-bump".

Meet our Associate Dean of Students
Hello! I am very happy to serve as the Associate Dean of Students to a tremendously hard working and energetic staff team. Our goal of providing opportunities and resources to students is made easier because UCI students are beyond impressive—they are intellectually curious, care about service to others, use their voices, and have a drive to develop themselves as leaders. I look forward to being a part of our students’ college journey!
