Director for Housing Officially Named

Thursday, May 2 2013

Deedee Kanikkeberg has been officially named as the University Housing director, after serving as interim since January. Kanikkeberg has over 20 years of experience in higher education including seven years as the director at Lewis and Clark State College and eight years as the associate director of housing at the University of Idaho.

“It is an honor to accept this position, and I am excited to broaden my campus relationships in this new role,” Kanikkeberg says.

Kanikkeberg will hit the ground running and maintain the focus towards recruitment and retention. Bruce Pitman, vice provost for Student Affairs/dean of students, and assistant vice president for Auxiliary Services, Tyrone Brooks, are confident that Kanikkeberg’s experience and knowledge will serve the university well as she oversees a department that is “capable of being a world-class organization.”
