NKU is committed to the safety and well-being of minors in our care.

All program leaders, program staff and volunteers who will be working with minors in a program or activity operated by or affiliated with NKU and/or in NKU facilities must annually complete online education through Safe Colleges, titled, "Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse"
