Dean's Fund For Excellence

The Northern Kentucky University College of Arts & Sciences is the centerpiece of the broad range of educational opportunities that are available at NKU. We serve all NKU students through core classes needed for every degree.

Chances are, when you were an NKU student, one of our outstanding professors had an important impact on you, believed in you, and made a difference in your learning experience at NKU and in your life beyond. Giving to the College of Arts & Sciences is a wonderful way you can give back and, in turn, help us to move forward in our goals for excellence in education for all.

Your support helps raise our profile and reputation in the community and region, and your gift can inspire others to give, as well.  Your personal commitment to NKU and the College of Arts & Sciences will provide us with the necessary support to achieve our most important goals:

  • Support for Students – We must attract and retain the best students, regardless of financial need, and give opportunities to those who may otherwise not be able to attend NKU. 

  • Support for Faculty - In an increasingly competitive environment, we must continue to attract the best scholars and educators and encourage their work and professional development. 

  • Support for Facilities and Technology - To provide the best possible education for our students and resources for our faculty, we must maintain and improve present facilities and remain up to date with the most modern teaching methods available through changing technology.

If you are among the alumni who gave to the college this year, we want to express our appreciation for your generous gift.  Regardless of your level of giving, we want you to know that every gift has a positive impact on the College of Arts & Sciences and its students.
