The Northern Kentucky University Dean of the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS), Dr. Dale Stephenson, has approved a college donation to the Western Kentucky University College of Health and Human Services to help WKU students affected by the tornado outbreak in early December. Dean Stephenson and the WKU CHHS Dean, Dr. Tania Basta, are colleagues and he reached out to her after the tornados asking how NKU could help.
“I called Dean Basta to check in and send our thoughts to those impacted by the tornado outbreak in southwest Kentucky,” Dean Stephenson said. “It is our hope this donation to the College of Health and Human Services at Western Kentucky University is used to bring some normalcy and cheer to affected WKU faculty, staff and students as we approach this holiday season.”
The $5,000 donation will help with the immediate financial needs of WKU College of Health and Human Services students. The Colleges of Health and Human Services at NKU and WKU are nearly identical in size and scope.
“There is great need among our WKU students following the recent tornados and we are humbled by the outpouring of support,” Dean Tania Basta of WKU’s College of Health and Human Services said. “We are truly grateful for the generosity from NKU’s College of Health and Human Services for quickly offering financial assistance for our students.”
