Dean Waple announced he will be leaving his position as Dean of students at NKU for a position at Southern Illinois University this summer.

“I’ve accepted to be the vice chancellor of student affairs at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and that starts on July 1,” Waple said. “I’ve been searching for the last couple of months.”

The Dean told student government members that he and his family are excited for the opportunities ahead, but will also be sad to be leaving NKU.

“I wanted to let you know because you are my students and we’ve built a really strong bond in here,” Waple said. “I don’t know what this means for the interim plan.”

An official statement from the university will be released soon, according to Waple.
