Thank You!


 

Thank you to all of you who have contributed to these conversations already. Once Success by Design was announced, we were overwhelmed by the positive response and engagement from our campus community, our alumni and our community friends and partners. 

We're pleased to share with you that on Monday, April 8, 2019, the Board of Regents approved Success by Design, NKU's three-year strategic framework. For you reference the framework can be found here.

Your engagement is and will continue to be critical to the future success of our students, this university and our region. You may reach out to us at successbydesign@nku.edu.

THE 3-BOX SOLUTION

During NKU’s 2018 fall convocation, President Ashish Vaidya considered how we might utilize design thinking tools and the 3-box methodology in an accelerated timeframe of six months to develop a 3-year strategic framework for NKU. We are collecting input and ideas through several design thinking tools with our students, faculty, staff, and members of the community and the region. This feedback will be placed into the three boxes to shape and communicate our strategy for the future.

BOX 1:
THE PRESENT

We must improve on the things we are currently doing in ways that will yield better results for access, completion and career & community engagement.

BOX 2:
THE PAST

We must learn from and selectively forget the past processes that hinder access, completion and career & community engagement.

BOX 3:
THE FUTURE

We must design new, innovative ways to serve current and future students, ensuring their success with regards to access, completion and career & community engagement.

NEWS & UPDATES

Over the next six months, the NKU Strategic Core Team will meet with students, alumni, faculty, staff and members of the community to define goals for every category within the three boxes and devise a strategy to reach these goals. We want to hear from you and urge you to provide input.
