The Center for Student Engagement assists students as they link their academic work to real-world pursuits. NKU students can learn, practice, and hone their leadership skills by taking advantage of the Northern Kentucky Leadership Institute and the more than 200 student organizations available at the university. Students can connect with other students who share similar interests, spirituality, or political causes. Students who get involved find better jobs, earn better grades, and are more likely to graduate. Moreover, they are more satisfied with their college experience.
