Shannon Paskaris is the Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Veterans Students and works to exclusively support and guide the undergraduate veterans currently on Dartmouth's campus. A Dartmouth graduate from the class of 2009, she brings with her a special knowledge of the life of a Dartmouth student. Shannon holds a Master's Degree in Social Work and has been working in the mental health and medical field for the past 10 years, most recently working to directly support Veterans, Active-Duty Military, and First Responders through comprehensive case management.

Shannon is passionate about Dartmouth and building relationships with the Veteran students she is supporting. Shannon works to help tailor her student's Dartmouth experience to fit their individual needs and works to capitalize on the unique lived experiences of the Veteran students to place them in a position to succeed at Dartmouth. Shannon is particularly sensitive to the needs veterans might have and is familiar with resources and support her students receive through the VA and other resources on and off campus. She competed as a member of the women's ice hockey team during her time at Dartmouth and was elected team Captain. As a big enthusiast of teamwork, she is interested in working together with all resources that will help the veteran students succeed. Shannon is always happy to hear from her students, whether it's for guidance or just to catch up on their comings and goings at Dartmouth.
