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.
