Dear Campus Community:

Please join me in welcoming Grant Garber as the new Vice President for Legal Affairs and General Counsel. Grant comes to NKU from Auburn University, where he has served as a university counsel since 2018. He also serves as the lead counsel for Auburn University – Montgomery (AUM). He will join NKU on July 18, 2022.

Because of Grant’s extensive experience in public higher education and his strong commitment to our mission, I believe Grant will be an important strategic thought partner on the leadership team as we navigate an uncertain and complex legal and compliance landscape.

At Auburn and AUM, Grant has focused on a wide range of business issues and strategic transactions as well as projects in employment, athletics and student affairs. Before arriving at Auburn, he served as an associate general counsel for Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.  He began his career working for law firms in Ohio and North Carolina, where he represented public utilities, universities, and other institutional clients.

Grant is a graduate of Georgetown University and the Duke University School of Law.

I would like to thank Bonita Brown and Tammy Knochelmann for serving as co-chairs of the search advisory committee, along with Judith Daar, Kathleen Fuegen, John Gaffin and Arnie Slaughter for their work on the search.

Please join me in welcoming Grant to Norse Nation!

Ashish Vaidya
