The mission of the Division of Student Services is to provide and support the development and coordination of programs (both academic and non-academic), services and activities designed to achieve three primary objectives:

  1. To provide for the general welfare of students.
  2. To promote the personal, educational and career growth and development of each individual student.
  3. To complement and supplement experiences in the classroom or in an online setting or in a combination of both of these.

Student services are provided to students in a variety of ways:

  1. Student Services personnel meet with students in office locations on the Dyersburg campus and at the DSCC Gibson County Center and at the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center at Tipton County.
  2. An interactive desk-top video system allows students to interact in real-time with Student Services personnel located in different locations.
  3. Each unit of Student Services has a presence on the DSCC website, and students can access information 24/7. Office phone numbers and email addresses of Student Services personnel are available on the website.
  4. Announcements about upcoming events and resources available to students are posted in MyDSCC, the portal to DSCC’s intranet.


Student activities serve the extracurricular needs of the DSCC student body. These activities are designed to enhance leadership, social and management skills necessary to compete in today’s globally competitive world. The Director of Student Life and the Assistant Coordinator of Student Life are responsible for providing the leadership and support for co-curricular activities and work closely with campus-registered student organizations and the Student Government Association. For information regarding student activities, contact the Director of Student Life at 901-475-3166 or the Assistant Coordinator of Student Life at 731-286-3332.
