EKU Student Advocates

If you are a student going through the disciplinary process, we encourage you to utilize an Advocate. The EKU Student Conduct Advocates have been specially trained to be a valuable resource to you. Please read their biographies below, and contact the person you wish to be your Advocate directly.

I stay involved on campus by serving as the vice president for EKU’s collegiate chapter of the American Choral Director’s Association (ACDA) and recently was an intern with the Student Life office for EKU Big E Welcome. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, getting coffee with friends, listening to music, and am continuing to perfect the perfect pie crust recipe."
