Jason Thibodeaux

Dean of Student Affairs

My name is Jason Thibodeaux, and I am your Dean of Student Affairs.  I grew up in the Bayou City of Houston, Texas, and I attended The University of Texas at Austin where I earned both a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management Information Systems and a Master of Education in Counseling. I have worked in various student affairs roles at institutions of higher education over the past 10 years. Prior to coming to the University of California San Diego, I was the Senior Associate Dean of Students at Northern Arizona University, and I previously worked in the Office of the Dean of Students at The University of Texas at Austin.  

When I am not working to make Muir your home away from home, you can find me taking my dog, Ripley, on a journey to a new park, exploring a museum, or embarking on an adventure across the globe.  I have visited 19 countries so far, and I hope to add many more stamps to my passport. 

I believe that it is both an honor and a privilege to support students in their educational journey, and I look forward to meeting all of you during your time at Muir College.
