David Woodington

Academic Advisor and Instructor in Lawrence, KS

Schedule an appointment

I am an Academic Advisor (and sometimes Instructor!) in the Undergraduate Advising Center at Kansas University.

I grew up in Oxford, MS before bouncing around the country to the University of Alabama, Florida State University, and the University of Notre Dame for my BA, MA, and PhD, respectively. My studies focused on Religion and Philosophy, and I have taught courses on the Bible, early Christianity, and ethics. While teaching, I loved directly interacting with students, which led me to academic advising. The best part of my job is working with students to discover their passions and then helping them pursue those passions at KU and beyond!

Outside of work, I like to play board games and video games, read fantasy and sci-fi, and watch movies. I am also a sports fan, mostly college (both Alabama and KU) and soccer (Sporting Kansas City and Liverpool Football Club).

I look forward to meeting you!
