Michelle Melish

Office of Education Abroad

"Michelle always makes the success of the NKU’s students her first priority, not just during a pandemic crisis or in a temporary executive position but as a matter of daily practice. I know that she takes her main job assignment of giving U.S. students valuable and engaging study-abroad experiences as potentially life-changing parts of a university education very seriously." "In the past year, she has further demonstrated her leadership potential in an exemplary manner. Inspired by principles of inclusive excellence and equity, she has launched an initiative aimed at increasing the number of under-represented students in study abroad programs.
