RE:  President's Fall Convocation

In much the same way that January marks the beginning of a new calendar year, August marks the beginning of the new academic year. Both are celebrated with events that look back at past accomplishments while looking forward to new challenges and opportunities.
The NKU community is invited to join President Geoffrey Mearns as we celebrate the new academic year at the President’s Fall Convocation on Friday, Aug. 14.

A continental breakfast buffet will kick off the day at 8:15 a.m., in the lobby outside Greaves Concert Hall, with the convocation following at 9 a.m., in Greaves Concert Hall.

New colleagues will be introduced and the Frank Sinton Milburn Outstanding Professor will be recognized after which President Mearns will give the State of the University address, celebrating our recent successes and identifying the opportunities for our sustained excellence.
