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.
