Dean’s Office

The Sweet Briar Community offers a gorgeous campus and is a special place filled with faculty and staff who are committed to the success of each student. Here you have the chance to pursue your dreams and goals academically, as well as through internships, research, study abroad, and leadership roles. Like generations of women before you, you will discover that the opportunities are endless, extending well beyond our 2,850 acres.

Dean Teresa Garrett and her staff are always happy to help students... Dean Teresa Garrett and her staff are always happy to help students navigate their Sweet Briar experience.

Small class sizes and strong academic support are priorities that set Sweet Briar apart. Professors will not only know your name, but will also strive to ensure that you achieve your full potential.

My office is located on the first floor of Fletcher Hall. My first priority is students and each semester, I announce reserved hours during the week for walk-in meetings. Feel free to drop by with questions, bring a friend who has concerns, or just to say hello (we have a great candy jar, by the way), and you are also welcome to schedule an appointment.

We can’t wait to see what you will accomplish at Sweet Briar.
