Provost at Cleveland State to Serve as Next NKU President

The Board of Regents at Northern Kentucky University have voted unanimously to make Geoffrey Mearns the next President at NKU. Mearns, who is currently the Provost and  Senior Vice-President of Academic Affairs at Cleveland State, previously worked as Dean and Professor of Law at Cleveland State's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.

Mearns will succeed Dr. James Votruba, who last year announced that he would retire in the summer of 2012. Dr. Vortruba has served as NKU President for 15 years.
