Community Care

The Dean of Students offices and its team members are here to provide as much support for students as we can. Through our Community Care initiatives, our staff seek to be proactive and responsive when students experience academic disruptions because of life circumstances. Our team also works to build and maintain connections and opportunities for support within our region in the event a student may not find a resource available at NKU.
