    Would you like to teach in a university where students report the greatest strength is faculty and staff who know them by name and who care about them? At NKU we are deeply committed to “up close and personal” education. We are agile and innovative, with a campus culture that is collaborative, collegial and civil. 
    Located only seven miles from downtown Cincinnati in an area offering an outstanding quality of life, NKU is a nationally recognized metropolitan university committed to active engagement with the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati region of nearly two million people.

We encourage applications from all qualified candidates, but especially from individuals who contribute to the diversity of our academic community. NKU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. We embrace inclusiveness, equity, and global awareness in all dimensions of our work and seek excellence through diversity among our students, administrators, faculty, and staff. Application by members of diverse groups is encouraged.
