In addition to providing a friendly face to the Office, Killian advises students, staff, and faculty on policies and best practices. This includes, but is not limited to, graduate student exams and milestones, student petitions, graduate certificates, enrollment, GTA/GRA/GA policies, and graduation for students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Killian also manages the Progress to Degree (PTD) system for the College, verifies graduate student degrees as part of the KU graduation process, and reviews and endorses all enrollment forms at the School level.
A proud graduate of the College, Killian earned his B.A. in both Classical Antiquities and Philosophy from The University of Kansas in 2017. He began his professional career in Kansas City in a retail capacity, before returning to KU in 2018 where he served as an Admissions Representative with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. He has been a part of the COGA team since Spring 2019. A self-described "Navy Brat", he claims Virginia Beach, Virginia as his hometown, with a second home in Haven, Kansas, and a third on The Hill.
