We Can Take NKU Further: Message from Chair of the Campaign Committee

The students of Northern Kentucky University will challenge this community as they populate local businesses and bring fresh, entrepreneurial perspectives to the economic and social vitality of northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati.

So it’s on behalf of these thousands of determined learners that I ask you to make a generous investment in the work of this university through “Further, Faster: The Campaign for NKU.” We’re confident of the ROI you’ll see in regional growth, but what we’re really asking you to do is join a cause: preparing students to boldly impact our community, economy and society.

Please join me in supporting the eager learners of NKU who will lead our community—further, faster—to those levels of success of which we only dream today. It’s a great time to join the cause.

With deep appreciation,

Rich Boehne
