Meet the Staff & Class Dean

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

As the Dean of the Class of 2021, I am excited to welcome you to your sophomore year at TCU. The sophomore year is filled with many opportunities for you to continue building your network and skills – both in and out of the classroom. As your Class Dean, I am here as a point of contact and resource for you throughout your time here until you graduate (and even beyond). In addition, you will see me at activities and events designed with sophomore in mind, like the Second-Year Pinning Ceremony.

TCU is a great place because you make it great. 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.
