As time passes, faces in the University will come and go, but the University itself will always remain. It is stronger for their contributions, and with each generation new people rise to meet the challenges of continuing our mission to help educate new players in EVE Online.
I have been CEO for over 3 years, and over that time have seen great friends enter the University, and in some cases leave. With each change there is an opportunity for growth, and today is another one of those opportunities.
Today, I have the privilege and honor of recognizing some of us that are moving on, and some that are accepting new challenges.
Kivena has been a long serving member of E-UNI Leadership, first starting in the teaching department, rising through the ranks to lead that department, and finally moving over to maintain our Communications Department. His advice and counsel have been invaluable, but we are sad to announce that real life has drawn him away from the game. He has been given an amazing real life opportunity to pursue, and is stepping down as Director of Communications to follow his dream. Please join me in thanking Kivena for all of his hard work over the years.
Rose Chanlin has been a member of EVE University for years, first serving in the personnel department, leading personnel, and most recently as Director of Special Projects. During that tenure I have come to rely on him and his hard work. However, Rose has approached me asking for new tasks to occupy him, and I am happy to see him moving into another department to continue serving the University. Rose Chanlin will be the new Director of Communications. Please join me in congratulating Rose on his new position.
Director of Special Projects
Since its inception, the Director of Special Projects has overseen more and more responsibility. Campuses have continued to expand, becoming a huge success. As they have become more central to University life, the task of Director of Special Projects has grown past what one person can comfortably manage. With this in mind, the Special Projects Department will be split into two sections. The first will include the High-Sec Campus (HSC), Low-Sec Campus (LSC) and Incursions. The second will include the Amarr Mining Campus (AMC), Null-Sec Campus (NSC), Solitude, and the Wormhole Campus (WHC).
These sections were designed to try and spread the workload between the 2 directors while keeping some related activities together. There is no clean way to make the split, and it is subject to change in the future as we get a better grasp of how the division will work in reality. It also does not mean that campuses will not work together if they are in different sections. It just means that have a different director assigned to help and offer guidance. Both directors in Special Projects, as well as any other director, are always willing to help anyone who needs it, no matter what campus is officially assigned to which person.
Pehuen will be Director of Special Projects overseeing the HSC, Incursions, LSC, and oversight of the new Cross Campus Initiative. Pehuen is a long time campus manager, having served at the LSC for some time. He has extensive background in many aspects of the game, including pvp, pve, logistics, and industry that will serve him well in his new position. Please join me in congratulating Pehuen on his new position as Director of Special Projects
Bora Vyvorant will be Director of Special Projects overseeing the AMC, NSC, Solitude, and WHC. Bora is a long-standing member of the NSC and current NSC manager. He has guided the NSC through multiple events, demonstrating incredible skills in diplomacy, logistics, and planning that will make him a tremendous resource for the University. Please join me in congratulating Bora on his new position as Director of Special Projects
Both Pehuen and Bora will continue to act as temporary campus managers during the transition until replacements have been found and named. Fancy forum colors and ranks will be awarded in the very near future.

Here is a list of announced changes for E-UNI, effective today.
1: New Position- Director of Structures
The Director of Structures will be the central point of contact to oversee and coordinate all structures across the University. With citadels on the horizon, followed by a second wave of industrial structures, in-space structures will be a central part of any organization. This individual will launch and manage all structures for the University and its Campuses. This will include coordinating payment, launching into space, configuring, and setting access lists.
Kaein Soturus has been diligently exploring Sisi for citadel changes, and will be our first Director of Structures. Kaein has been serving as our Director of Human Resources for years, and was a title manager before that. If you have any questions regarding citadels in the future, Kaein will be the central point of contact in the University. Please join me in thanking Kaein for taking on this responsibility.
For the last few years, the Mentoring department has been included under the Department of Education. Recent changes in recruitment, such as the Orientation Officer initiative have proven successful, and prompted changes in mentoring. Henceforth, Mentoring will be included under the Department of Human Resources. This will allow for a seamless student experience from recruitment, orientation, mentoring, and titles. We expect this change to help improve student services in the future.
3. Director of Human Resources
Laura Karpinski has been our Director of Personnel for some time, and is now moving up to oversee all areas of Human Resources. She is a hardworking member of the University, and we expect Human Resources to flourish under her leadership. She will be responsible for Personnel, Titles, and Mentoring. Her old position as head of Personnel will revert to a Manager position, and she will be announcing her replacement for that position in the near future. Please join me in congratulating Laura Karpinski.
Both the Amarr Mining Campus (AMC) and Project Solitude have been listed as unofficial campuses, with no official Eve University Management involved. Both of these groups will be changing to official campuses, with Jefferson Spence being named AMC Manager, and Sally Digital being named Solitude Manager. Sally and Jefferson have both been vital members of their respective communities, and we expect them to be a wonderful addition to the management team. It will allow us to more closely work with these groups to offer a wide variety of educational opportunities to all Uni students. Please join me in congratulating both Jefferson Spence and Sally Digital.
5. Cross Campus Initiative
Rose Chanlin will be announcing details of this new program soon. Stay tuned.
6. There is no 6
The final round of the Amarr Championships are rapidly approaching, with EVE University’s own Kelon Darklight competing as a house champion.
Kelon’s team dominated the first rounds of the competition, and will be finishing his road to victory Friday, April 22nd, at 17:00 Eve Time.
Make sure you tune in via CCP’s twitch to watch the action.
One week ago, EVE University declared war. Our will was strong, our minds were clear, and our goal was simple; retribution.
The PIRAT alliance had been a frequent opponent of ours, often declaring “war” in order to strike at those engaged in commerce at major trade hubs. We entered this week intending to teach PIRAT what war meant, and they received a full and bloody education. Soon, groups such as A Few Brave Men granted us their aid in this endeavor.
PIRAT, like many “high sec mercenaries”, uses out of corp income to support their operations. The Lizaveta Corporation was one of these money making operations, with a significant number of Player Owned Customs Offices (POCO) scattered through space generating tax revenue. After one week of of War E-Uni with the support of A Few Brave Men destroyed 185 POCOs.
Through intel gathered by many, pieced together by White 0rchid, and put into action with the help of people like Gareth Correlian, Mattikus Pathfinder, Jefferson Spence, Kyle Hargrove, Kara Burnett, Frozen Adler, Tusoro Tsero, and many others, we have struck a decisive blow against our enemy. Not only did we destroy 185 POCOs, but we have decisively engaged them in a major battle. That battle showed PIRAT and their friends the danger of facing a militant EVE University when supported by our many friends across New Eden, and it was an expensive lesson for them.
While we have named specific people for their contribution and cited specific battles one, the accomplishments of this week are not measured in isk and destruction. The true heroes of this week are not the organizers, fcs, or management. The true heroes of this week are the countless students and staff who have dedicated their time and ammo in common cause. None of this is possible without the participation and assistance of all of us. The true meaning of this week was not war, but community, and what we can accomplish as a group. Over this week new people have come together, created new experiences, and formed new bonds. And though we now return to normal life, with many of us scattering to our own smaller section of space, the memory of what we have accomplished will remain.
“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”
We are EVE University.
In an amazing string of battles, Kelon Darklight’s team has emerged with a perfect 5-0 record from the latest rounds of the Amarr Championships.
He will be one of the two finalists competing at fanfest to determine the next Amarrian Emperor.
Join me in congratulating him and his team for a tremendous performance.
In the first round the the Amarr Championship, Kelon Darklight’s team soundly defeated their opponent. Their missile spewing legion made short work of the enemy confessors, leaving just the enemy legion to destroy. It put up a valiant effort, but eventually melted under the sustained dps.
Congratulations on the first win, and tune in at 19:00 at CCP’s Twitch for the next fight.
The Amarr Championships are coming, and one of EVE University’s own is participating.
The first round of fights begins on November 8th, with Kelon Darklight’s team fighting at 16:40 in the 11th match vs Chessur.
The match will be streamed via CCP’s Twitch. Make sure you tune in and watch.
