Changes for EVE University

Posted on our forums by Azmodeus Valar
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.

2. Mentoring
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.

4. Campuses
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.

Tyrian Trophy II – An RvB and Eve-UNI Tournament

Alliance Logos

On the weekend of the 21/22 November 2015, EVE University will be taking part in the Tyrian Trophy II, a double elimination tournament arranged by RvB, with 5-man teams made up of pilots from all three involved corporations: EVE University, Red Federation and Blue Republic.

There are over 25 billion ISK in prizes already available, with more expected to be announced. There are no SP or pilot age requirements, and teams will be made up of both battle-hardened veterans and the newest of the new pilots fighting together.

You can find the full rules and sign-up threads on either the RvB forums here, or the E-UNI forums here.

HQ is Moving

Earlier today our CEO, Azmodeus Valar, announced that the HQ of EVE University will move from Aldrat to Slays. The following text was given to explain the movement:

Since 2009, EVE University has listed Aldrat as its official headquarters in New Eden. This was the latest in a history of different locations, ranging from 0.0 to Korsiki. It too will soon be part of our history.

On August 1st, 2015 EVE University will change its official headquarters to the Slays system, located near the market hub of Stacmon. This will involve moving of all University Services based at Aldrat, including, but not limited to services such as hangars, BYOM, and PYOS.

This will not be our forever home, but is merely another step to keep the University focused on what helps us meet the needs of our students. It is our hope that the new location will best serve the University moving forward, much as Aldrat was selected in 2009 as the best option at that time.

There will be small disruptions in University services during the move. Logistics staff and Management have been working behind the scenes for the last month in preparation, but some work still remains.

Directorship Moves

On 16 July 2015 Azmodeus Valar, CEO of EVE University announced the following:

With the recent departure of Irdalth from his position as Director of Public Information, some changes are taking place with other Directors.

First, the section for Public Information is being renamed “Communications”. This better encapsulates its intended role.
They will oversee the front page, wiki, and social media on one front, along with Diplomacy for in-game relations.

Kivena, our Director of Education, will be transitioning over to be Director of Communications. They have represented the Uni at fanfest, overseen significant projects on the wiki, and are an overall great individual. This new job is a perfect match for their skills.

Titus Tallang, Teaching Director, will be filling Kivena’s old position overseeing Teaching, Events and Mentors as Director of Education. Titus has been instrumental in maintaining our teaching section, and it is a natural transition.

The current position of Teaching Director is being changed to a manager position, and will be filled at some point in the future.

CCP Announces New EVE Online Art Director, Updates Work on Dominix

CCP has recently announced the new Art Director for EVE Online.  CCP Jorg introduced themselves as well as provided an update on the visual redesign of the Dominix.

As CCP Jorg stated,

“Once we got some breathing room to start on other projects, the Dominix quickly stood out as an obvious choice!  It´s by no means a new project, as the design created by CCP Caiman has been ready for quite some time.  Unfortunately workload pushed the actual creation of the asset back several times.  This is not unusual for us. We usually have some re-designs ready for a 3d artist to tackle when time frees up.

When redesigning the Dominix we thought about keeping the retro-feel of this old warhorse, so the silhouettes and base design aesthetics are quite similar to the original version. Now we finally have a small window to dive into this very much awaited project.  CCP Bluescreen is relentless these days building the asset and getting it ready for the texturing phase.  We are very excited to see the final version and it will hit your hangars in the upcoming release in August.”

Learn about living in Nullsec: making money, surviving, ships, and Q&A. June 2 at 19:00 EVE time:

Ryac Sampaio, member of Gladiators of Rage in the RAZOR Alliance, will be hosting a Q&A concerning life in null security space.

Hello Unistas!

Some time ago I moved on from the Uni and have lived in nullsec with 2 different alliances. The learning curve of living full time in nullsec is quite steep and I’ve learned a helluva lot of lessons since moving there. More often than not the hard way. For those of you who may look to move onto Nullsec in future I’d like to pass on the lessons I’ve learned so that you all can enjoy it as much as possible, and also so that you have a much less expensive time of it as I have!! :D

Duration: Approx 1 hour.
Location: Docked up safely in a station.

What you’ll need:

  • Access to the lecture.e-uni channel ingame.
  • Access to the public mumble server, there’ll be a channel at the time called “Living in Nullsec”.

Class Contents:

  • Making Money.
  • Surviving.
  • Ships.
  • Q&A.

Please note that I’ll be touching on some subjects that will have their own classes (e.g. PI, Fitting) but I won’t be going into them in any great detail.

Hope to see many of you there!!
Ryac Sampaio.
