With a new academic year comes a new group of employees on our member campuses. We’ve attempted to catalog all the new senior campus staff (or relatively new staff, or seasoned employees taking on new roles) below and by highlighting them in bold in our updated 2016-17 AIKCU Membership Directory. The directory includes contact information for all AIKCU member senior staff as well as other important contact information, like AIKCU group listerv addresses and contact information for Kentucky congressional offices.
