Dean Spellman is responsible for overseeing the Dean of Students department, staff, and programs. She is the primary contact for returning sophomores, juniors, and seniors, but her main focus is to be an advocate for all students. Dean Spellman is available to listen to students with questions or concerns about their CMC experience and to help find solutions to any problems or difficulties students may be having. Dean Spellman has a BA in Anthropology from Occidental College, a Masters in Education from Indiana University-Bloomington, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary's College of California. She is a native of California who loves to travel, is a chocoholic, and bakes regularly (especially chocolate chip cookies), which is why she tries to attend her boot camp workout class most mornings.
