Brief: Housing director leaving for FSU

By Olivia Krauth–

U of L’s Director of Housing Shannon Staten will be leaving the position this summer. She will be starting as Florida State University’s Executive Director of Housing in August.

“The FSU program is a premier student affairs and housing program with about 7,000 students living on campus,” Staten said. “As Executive Director, I will work directly with the university’s administration and faculty and staff to provide excellent service to the residents.  It is a wonderful opportunity and I am excited to be taking on a new role.”

After working at U of L for 26 years, she says she will “miss it tremendously.”

Her replacement has not been selected yet. Dean of Students Michael Mardis will begin a national search this summer.
