Dr. Diana McGill was appointed Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in 2017. She first came to NKU as an undergraduate student, graduating with a BS in Biology and a BA in Chemistry. She went on to earn her Ph.D. in Biochemistry at Harvard University and completed her post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. She rejoined NKU in 1993 as a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry and has spent her entire professional career here, serving as department chair from 2003-2012.
Since returning to the faculty in her home department, Dr. McGill has focused on student-centered issues such as retention, advising, and curriculum reform. Along with several other STEM faculty, she also helps direct an NSF S-STEM grant that supports low-income STEM students through a highly-successful cohort model. She is passionate about the college and is excited in her role as Dean to find new ways to partner with the community to support all our meaningful work.
