Day in the Life of Bill McDonald: Dean of Students
As featured in The Red and Black
McDonald’s job as dean of students also takes on this somber tone when dealing with the Behavioral Assessment and Response Council.
He said that in dealing with students who may pose an imminent threat to themselves or others, he has had to learn to compartmentalize.
“You learn the coping mechanisms to be very attentive to that student in whatever crisis he or she is in, and you try to help them or assist them in the best way you can,” he said. “But at the end of the day you have to understand that you can’t guarantee that this is going to be fixed.”
Still, McDonald said his job allowed for thousands of other student experiences that sustain him in dealing with the more serious matters – such as being a judge for the Delta Phi Lambda Mr. Diversity competition.
