Grant Garber has been named the next vice president for legal affairs/general council at Northern Kentucky University. He starts on July 18.
NKU President Ashish Vaidya said that the university is “delighted” to have Garber join the campus.
“With his extensive experience in public higher education and a strong commitment to our
mission, Grant will be a strategic thought partner to the leadership team as we navigate
an uncertain and complex legal and compliance landscape ahead of us,” Vaidya said.
Garber serves now as university counsel at Auburn University in Alabama, focusing on a wide range of business issues and projects in employment and student affairs.
“NKU is a special place, with a campus community that shares a deep commitment to
the success of our students and our region, and it’s a true privilege to serve NKU as
general counsel,” Garber said. “I’m excited to join Dr. Vaidya and all of NKU’s faculty
and staff in meeting the worthy challenges we face in higher education and in achieving
our shared mission.”
Before working at Auburn University, Garber served as an associate general counsel for Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. He began his career working for law firms in Ohio and North Carolina, where he represented public utilities, universities, and other institutional clients.
Grant is a graduate of Georgetown University and the Duke University School of Law.
