It's Time!

Empowering Women’s Philanthropy

Women’s contributions to NKU are growing in significance each year, leading the way to the university’s successful future. At the forefront of this charge, Women for NKU harnesses the power of women and their networks to focus on meaningful involvement and bold investment in the NKU Experience.

Who We Are

We are a diverse network of alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends of NKU who, in support of President Short-Thompson, engage and inform women with and about the people, programs, and successes of the university. Our primary goals are to support the President’s priorities, and to help drive the university’s successful future by enhancing the collective involvement and financial impact of women giving to NKU.

We seek new ways to engage women of varied interests and accomplishments in the life of the university. Women for NKU encourages women to connect with one another, university leaders and NKU’s exceptional professors and students as they invest their time, talents and resources.
