More than 200 Northern Kentucky community, business, government and education leaders gathered here Tuesday for the grand opening of the Sullivan University Center for Learning - Northern Kentucky.

Louisville-based Sullivan University, which has been providing career-based education programs for more than 50 years, expanded to Northern Kentucky earlier this year and will begin offering classes in late September in the former Columbia Sussex building on Grandview Drive, which is adjacent to Interstate 75 in Fort Mitchell.

"What a tremendous turnout," Vicki Berling, director of the Northern Kentucky Center for Learning, said during brief remarks to the crowd. "We are so proud to be a part of the education and business communities in Northern Kentucky and are anxious to begin helping students pursue their career and job goals while helping employers find and keep skilled workers."

Sullivan University is tailoring its initial Northern Kentucky education programs to that are tailor-made for some of the region’s largest industries, including Logistics and Transportation Management; Business Administration; Healthcare Management; Hospitality Management; Conflict Management; as well as all of the outstanding online programs offered by Sullivan University.

Sullivan University, which celebrates its 54th anniversary this year, already has established relationships in Northern Kentucky by forging articulation agreements with the Campbell County, Grant County, Williamstown and Fort Thomas school districts for its renowned culinary program at the National Center for Hospitality Studies at Sullivan University, which allows students to use high-school credits in certain culinary programs toward their degrees at Sullivan.

Sullivan also offers Dale Carnegie Training in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. And it offers a robust online offering of classes and programs, including an executive Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program that is designed for professionals and students who may be too busy to attend classes.

"When I took this job I heard from the business community the three most important issues in Northern Kentucky are workforce, workforce and workforce," said Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Trey Grayson, who also spoke to the gathering. "Sullivan University is all about workforce development and career-focused education, and we welcome them to Northern Kentucky."
