about

Northern Kentucky University's evolution from an educational branch of the University of Kentucky into a major university in its own right is a tale of promise and humble beginnings. Could the handful of students and instructors attending classes in a Covington bus station in 1946 have ever imagined what the next six and a half decades would bring? Today, NKU serves more than 15,000 students, employs more than 2,000 faculty and staff, and is the fastest growing institution of higher learning in the state.

Northern Kentucky University: A Panoramic History showcases the evolution of NKU, revealing the history, events, and individuals involved in the transformation. Offering side-by-side comparisons of past milestones and recent advancements, the book both shows and tells the story of the university and its people.

Featuring engaging historical photographs alongside full-color panoramic images by photographer Thomas R. Schiff, Northern Kentucky University illustrates the university's rapid evolution. Accompanying the images are accounts from professors and alumni, including Professor Emeritus James C. Claypool, the first full-time employee of the college. This lavishly illustrated volume is an inviting window into the storied past and the future of an institution ready to ignite the potential of Kentucky's brightest stars.
