Kellner named director of VSU Auxiliary Services

Robert Kellner, former Valdosta State University assistant dean of students and director of Housing and Residence Life, was recently named director of Auxiliary Services. He now leads the university's support division that operates offices like Parking and Transportation, Dining Services and the University Bookstore.

"I'm looking forward to the new and different challenges associated with this position," Kellner said. "We want to continue good customer service, and we want to do everything we can to meet the needs of the students.

"There's an outstanding staff in place in Auxiliary Services, and I'm very fortunate to step into an area where their expertise is respected," Kellner said.

Kellner holds a Master of Education degree in student personnel services from the University of South Carolina and a Master in Public Administration degree from VSU. He has more than 20 years of residence hall experience, having served as the director of housing at the University of Southern Colorado prior to joining the Valdosta State Housing Office in 1983.

Kellner has also served on the VSU faculty as an instructor in the Psychology Department. Additionally, he has supervised the Orientation and Leadership Development programs.

Professionally, Kellner has been active in the Association of College and University Housing Officers International (ACUHO-I), the Southeastern Association of Student Personnel Administrators, the National Association of College Auxiliary Services and the American College Personnel Association. He has been appointed three times to chair the Legislative Issues Committee for ACUHO-I and currently serves as its liaison with the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Officials.
