Kara Brant

Associate Director of Student Advocacy and Support

Supporting, advocating, and empowering students is my passion. I am a Nebraska transplant, and I have served UNL students for over 5 years, first with the College of Arts & Sciences, and now with Student Affairs. I earned my Masters in Student Affairs and Higher Education closer to home at Indiana State University.

Pets are my favorite topic of conversation! When not at work, you can find me with my family and furbabies, watching The Office, or coaching roller derby.

Sue Moore

Associate Director of Student Advocacy and Support

I first discovered a love for helping students while serving as a Resident Assistant in Sandoz Hall here at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. From that point forward, I knew that I wanted to work with students in a university setting. After completing my master’s degree in Educational Psychology, I left UNL and held various positions in residence life at different universities around the country. Since returning to UNL, I have worked in Residence Life, the Dean of Students Office, Student Conduct & Community Standards and, currently, in Student Advocacy & Support.

College is challenging and success looks different for every student. Sometimes an individual needs help and assistance to get through a difficult time and to find their path. It’s always a privilege to listen to a student’s concerns, discuss options and support them as they pick their next steps.

Kelli King

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Advocacy & Support

My roots are deep at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As a first-generation college student, I earned my bachelor’s in both Education and History and became certified to teach Social Studies (7th-12th grade) as well as English language learners (K-12th grade). I taught secondary education for five years and earned my master’s in Historical Studies and attended Columbia University’s Teachers College in New York City.

I have a passion for advocating and working to support students, which led me back to UNL in 2011 to lead the W.H. Thompson Scholars Learning Community, a living and learning community for nearly 1,200 students awarded the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation Scholarship. Now as the assistance vice chancellor for student affairs, I’m thrilled to work in Student Affairs where I oversee student support and advocacy initiatives including mental health services, resilience and well-being, services for students with disabilities, behavioral intervention as well as student conduct and community standards.
