We are ranked one of the best universities for LGBTQA student life in Kentucky.

NKU has earned 5/5 stars on the Campus Pride Index, the leading national nonprofit organization for student leaders and campus groups working to create safer, more LGBTQ-friendly learning environments at colleges and universities.


Dear Campus Community,

The Office of LGBTQ Programs and Services will remain available to support our LGBTQA+ community through these difficult times. Though we are not able to come together in person, we intend to continue providing a space where we can support each other and gather through various online resources. If you are a student who needs assistance, needs to talk, or simply wants to stay involved, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Office. Likewise, if you are a faculty, staff, or alum and need assistance or would like to stay connected, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

We intend to continue some programming virtually, including workshops and opportunities for students to engage. You can follow these updates by visiting this website and our Facebook page. If you have ideas for virtual programming, please reach out. NKU’s 7th Annual LGBTQ Pride Week is Monday, April 13 – Friday, April 17. I’d love to hear your ideas on how we can continue to celebrate together.
If you are affiliated with NKU, are part of the LGBTQA+ community, and are able to access Facebook, join the closed Facebook group, “NKU LGBTQA+ Community” Please note that this is a closed, confidential group for NKU LGBTQA students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

These are challenging times, but we still have much to look forward to. It was just a couple of weeks ago that we were planning the campus wide celebration for achieving a 5-star rating on the Campus Pride Index.  Though our physical campus is closed, we will continue our work to ensure that NKU remains a leader in LGBTQ inclusion.  I cannot wait to celebrate with you all when it is safe for us to once again gather on campus.

Stay safe,
Bonnie Meyer
