Dear Campus Community,
As I complete my first full month as your Interim President, I can tell you that my heart is beaming with joy at the work and support for students that I see from all corners of the campus. This is the NKU spirit that attracted me to this campus when I interviewed here almost four years ago.
NKU is a pivotal piece of the Northern Kentucky region. This region loves this university and understands the key role that we play in educating the next generation of leaders, artists, entrepreneurs, and the overall workforce. We will continue to play this vital role for our community, now and into the future.
NKU has a bright future. Despite current challenges, we are perfectly poised to support this region and provide educational opportunities to anyone who wants to earn a post-secondary degree, whether it be on campus or online, no matter if a full time, part time or transfer student.
We provide cultural and fun events for our community – ranging from athletics to theater performances to orchestra. We also provide opportunities for K-12 schools and students as well as community partners to be involved with our campus – from tours to summer camps to co-locating small businesses on our campus.
There are so many exciting things happening every day at NKU that bring me great pride in serving our university. Each month, I look forward to celebrating key highlights of significant achievements with you – from academics to athletics or from Highland Heights, Kentucky to Bonn, Germany!
Key highlights from February include:
While these are only a handful of examples, there are countless more to share. As you can see, there is much to be proud of and I look forward to working with everyone in the coming months as we continue our focus on student success. We are Northern Kentucky’s premier regional public institution. We are NKU. Go Norse!
