CBC Member of the Week: Northern Kentucky Education Council – April 3rd, 2023

‚ÄčThe Northern Kentucky Education Council was formed in 2008 to better align education initiatives in the region. With input from regional leaders in the education, business and community sectors, the Council of Partners in Education, Vision 2015 Education Implementation Team, and the NKY Education Alliance agreed to work collaboratively and to merge their efforts. As a result, the NKY Council of Partners transformed into the Northern Kentucky Education Council, which now serves as the catalyst for supporting student success and wellbeing by reducing barriers to learning, advocating for education, and building collaborative partnerships.


The mission of the Northern Kentucky Education Council is to strengthen, unite, and mobilize education, business, and community partners in Northern Kentucky to advance student success and well being from early childhood through post-secondary career.
