Starting an organization on campus is a rewarding commitment! It is a great way to leave your legacy at NKU, develop your leadership skills, and create community. However, it is a lot of responsibility and we want to make sure you are set up for success! We have put together a New Organization Guide to make sure that all new organizations have a lasting impact at Northern Kentucky University!
