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.
