Provost's Welcome

This has been a truly unique and incredible year at NKU, beginning with exciting growth and ending with unprecedented challenges. While our faculty and staff have always demonstrated that students are the center of everything they do, their commitment to students during the spring 2020 transition to remote instruction has shown what a special place NKU can be. All of our faculty and staff deserve to be recognized and honored for their work to teach and support all of our students. While we can't recognize everyone this year, I hope you will feel my appreciation and see that those receiving honors and awards have helped to make special contributions to NKU. Thank you all for the work you are doing and for helping to celebrate these faculty and staff who put student success at the center of everything they do.

Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs

Faculty and Staff Awards Selection Committees

We assembled dedicated selection committees composed of NKU faculty and staff. These committee members worked earnestly to select the best candidate in each award category. Thank you for your outstanding work!
