This article is about the CEO, Directors, and Managers of EVE University. For the general functionality of CEOs and Directors in player corporations, see Corporation (Corp Mechanics).

The management of EVE University is appointed as a meritocracy, using demonstrated ability to select staff.

The University has five distinct divisions, all under overall control of the CEO Kelduum Revaan. These are Education, Personnel, Logistics, Public Relations and the Ivy League Navy.

Chief Executive Officer

Kelduum Revaan

About the role: The CEO oversees the general day-to-day running of the University, setting the general direction and making decisions which affect the whole group. This post has various departments reporting to it including Personnel, Education, Logistics and Public Relations, as well as Fleet Command.

About the person: Kelduum (a mandalorian name, meaning 'eternal stronghold') became a Capsuleer in mid 2006, and after a little while, joined EVE University. After a few short months he became entangled with a few diplomatic negotiations, and eventually became Director of Diplomacy for IVY. In December of 2008 he took over the role of Director of Operations, and in January 2010 the CEO role itself, both of which he carries currently. It is currently unclear what his final goals on New Eden are, however they are believed to include the construction of a gigantic battle-station.

Director of Human Resources

Darian Reymont

About the role: The Director of Human Resources (HR) oversees the enrollment of University students both new and old with both the Recruiting Department and Student Relations Department falling under his/her remit. The role also includes reviewing student status and promotions via the Titles Department as well as offering guidance and training (or help training) new volunteers in assisting with these departments.

About the person: Darian began his University career as a recruitment officer in early 2009, stepping from noob to RO and on to recruitment manager within a year. Having served as recruitment manager for roughly seven months, Darian was offered the role of acting personnel director to provide cover for the indisposed METADOG and the role eventually became permanent. Darian is generally open, friendly and at his best managing people (or at least pretending to whilst taking all the credit for their hard work). While not the type to yell or punch you in the face, he may well poke you in the eye and push you down the stairs should you anger him.

Reports to: CEO

Personnel Manager


About the role: The Personnel Manager oversees the group of 30+ volunteers that make up the personnel department, the job of whom it is to put aside their time to filter University applicants, ensuring that only those who fit with E-UNI's mission and moral code are permitted entry. Tasks involve creating and updating recruitment policies, managing staff (bringing new Personnel Officers in, seeing that inactive POs are taken out, training new POs, promoting experienced POs etc.), monitoring recruitment activity, policing the University's public channel and, perhaps most importantly, defending the recruitment cookies.

Student Relations Manager

Marius Labo

About the role: The Student Relations Manager essentially functions as a mediator, addressing issues at student level before they escalate to the point where a director should need to get involved. They are a point of contact for the student body, acting much like EVE's CSM in that they try to filter through the popular issues and bring the important ones to the attention of the directorate. The SRM can also be considered the "voice" of the students, acting on their behalf in dealings with the directorate. It is for this reason that the SRM has much the same levels of access as directors, though they lack the in-game powers and roles. Have you got an issue or need and explanation? Then the Student Relations Manager is the person you should speak to.

About the person: Marius began his life as a Unista in December of 2010 after waiting a gruelling 19 days in the dreaded Queue. He volunteered for the ILN shortly after that and became a Lamb in Battle Group I "The Black Sheep". Shortly after that he volunteered to become a recruiter for the University. With the help of BG1 Training officers, especially Sam Seraph, "Mad Dog" Marius was soon promoted to Ensign and was kicked out of the Lamb barracks by Sam himself. If anyone at the barracks in CBT comes across care packages of cookies please forward them on to the rightful addressee. Marius established himself as a solid Personnel Officer and was soon promoted to Senior Personnel Officer, and much to his contemporaries dismay to Assistant Personnel Manager. In August of 2011 he was foolish enough to take on the position of Student Relations Manager. Contrary to popular belief, Marius is not syphoning off Uni R & D funds to find a way to mount Strip Miners onto his beloved Catalyst.

After being the Events Manager for 9 months she accepted the offer to join the Directorship. Not much is known about what she does besides directoring but she can be seen in fleets or hunting pirates now and then, making them cry.

EVE University Founder

Morning Maniac.jpeg
Morning Maniac

I founded EVE University to create a place where new players could get together and be appreciated for who they were. Classes and doing things together were important but nothing was, and is, more important than the positive attitude towards new players.

In the first three years I clocked about 4000 hours logged-in in the service of the University. After some real life changes my available free time was greatly reduced but I could rely on a great team of directors and managers to run the Uni. In the last three years I was mainly concerned with extinguishing fires and the occasional directorship drama, but fortunately for me and everyone involved these issues have become less frequent and intense. The current leadership is stable and doing well, and they seem to share my vision of what the University should be and they work hard to shape it as such, with all the limitations of the game and the people in it.

More changes in my real life have resulted in even less EVE time and as a result I feel now removed from the game. Because of that I have decided that it is in the best interest of EVE University that I resign from my CEO position. I have asked Kelduum to succeed me and he has accepted the job.

What does this mean for the University and its members? Well, nothing. It means that now the formal power will be with the person who has already been in charge for a long time. I trust that Kelduum and the rest of the leadership will continue to run and build the University as they have done in the past. If they should decide to take another route then that's fine too.

As for me? I hope to stay a member of the University. If and when I have time I would like to log in and just join the chat with the new guys. The enthusiasm of new players is what I always enjoy most about EVE. Besides, there is always a lot to learn in EVE.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone for putting your trust in me. When I founded the Uni I had no idea where it would go. Where we are today is far beyond anything I could have imagined. I have learned so much, I have met amazing people and had a great time. All thanks to you, members past and present of EVE University.

Directors Emeriti

The following were once directors E-UNI who have stepped down from their positions and while they no longer hold any official authority, their considerable knowledge and history is still called upon from time to time, and their input is welcome in E-UNI management discussions.
