Student Affairs and Activities provides experiences beyond the classroom that reinforce classroom instruction and complement academic learning, promote appreciation of cultural diversity, improve the quality of campus life, protect relevant rights of students, and contribute to building a sense of community on campus.
The Office of Student Affairs is the administrative office over Student Activities, student government (ASFC), Student Accounts, the Campus Center including food services, and the annual commencement ceremony.
The Student Affairs office also manages liability issues that arise on the Foothill campus. It provides information including procedures regarding formal student grievances; the College student conduct, due process and student discipline; student rights and responsibilities; the Foothill College Academic Honor Code; and other student and legal issues.
Thom Shepard is the dean of Student Affairs & Activities, and is the "Grievance Officer", and the administrator over discipline and due process. Please call his assistant, Katherine Fortune, at (650) 949-7241, if you have any questions, would like reference material, or to make an appointment to speak with the dean.
