Meet the Staff & Class Dean

A message the Dean of the Class of 2021, Dr. Vanessa Roberts Bryan

Dear TCU Horned Frog,

As the Dean of the Class of 2021, I am thrilled to welcome you into the Horned Frog Family. You are a member of a community that stretches back to our founding in 1873 and continues even stronger today. TCU has so much to offer you – both in and out of the classroom – and I hope you take every opportunity presented to you over the next several years. As your Class Dean, I am here as a point of contact and resource for you from your first day to the day you graduate (and even beyond). In addition, you will see me at major milestone events for your class, including the Chancellor’s Assembly, Orientation and Frog Camp, and other activities throughout the year.

You have much to look forward to during your tenure at TCU. And, while you are here to be educated, challenged, and inspired, you, in turn, will educate, challenge, and inspire us all.

If I can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 817.257.7855 or by email at


Vanessa Roberts Bryan, Ed.D.
Dean, Class of 2021
