Dr. François Le Roy joined the full-time faculty of NKU in 1998. Since then, Le Roy has taught a variety of courses in modern European and U.S. history.
François Le Roy was born and raised in Brittany, France, and graduated in 1987 from the Université de Haute-Bretagne with a master's in history. Before earning his Ph.D. in history, Le Roy was assigned to the press service of the French Prime Minister.
In addition to teaching, Le Roy is also the director of the Office of Education Abroad as well as the executive director of the International Education Center. He has authored numerous academic publications and spoken at universities across the world, but his most notable work is evident in the lives of the faculty and students he has influenced at NKU.
Earlier this year, NKU’s office of Alumni Programs teamed with Norse Media to produce a series of short films that debuted at the 2014 Alumni Awards Celebration. These “micro documentaries” — which we’re going to feature here for the next several weeks — tell the stories of nine incredible NKU alumni, from an athletic prodigy-turned-school-principal, to a HAZMAT unit specialist, to a beloved NKU professor, to a popular TV news anchor.
