President invites students to ‘community conversations’

Five years ago, I led a panel of Northern Kentucky University associates who met with community representatives, University personnel, alumni, and students to address postsecondary education needs in the 21st Century as well as the role of NKU in meeting those needs. Those community conversations were very helpful as we developed Northern Kentucky University’s Five-Year Strategic Agenda.

Much has occurred during the last five years at NKU. Our new panel and I would like to talk with you to discuss our progress and to hear your thoughts on how we can best meet your needs and the needs of the community during the next five years.

All students are invited to join me in one or more of the conversations listed below:
