UK Researcher Robin Shoemaker Featured on LabTV

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 19:13

Video by UK REVEAL Research Media.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015) — Robin Shoemaker, a postdoctoral scholar, is the first biomedical researcher from the University of Kentucky to be featured on the national website LabTV.

This website features videos with medical researchers who tell where they came from, how they chose their career, what they do each day in the lab, and why they love it. LabTV’s founder, Jay Walker of TEDMED, said he started the site because if high school students can personally identify with a young medical researcher, they are far more likely to consider becoming one.

Shoemaker, who has spent five years in the laboratory of Lisa Cassis, vice president for research and professor of pharmacology and nutritional sciences, was eager to share her story with LabTV. She said her path to diabetes research wasn’t clear cut. She started in analytical chemistry, but didn’t feel a strong connection to the research.

“I came to the University of Kentucky and I met Lisa Cassis, my mentor. She was doing research in obesity and related diseases like hypertension and diabetes, and so she suggested that I could focus my interest in nutrition on some of those problems, since they’re really epidemics in our society,” Shoemaker said.

“The most exciting aspect of my work is the ability to implicate molecules or proteins in some disease process that no one else has really looked at before, and the chance to target that therapeutically and make a difference in treating people who have diseases like Type 2 diabetes. It’s really a compelling reason to go forward every day.”

LabTV’s network features more than 1,000 researchers working at dozens of leading universities, corporations, and the National Institutes of Health. For more, visit

Shoemaker’s video was produced by Reveal, part of UK Research Communications, in cooperation with LabTV. For more Reveal videos, visit

UK HealthCare Celebrates Kentucky's Longest "Kidney Donor Chain"

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 15:40

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015) – Six of the eight patients who recently took part in UK HealthCare's first kidney donor chain learned who their respective recipients or donors were for the first time yesterday. The kidney donor chain was the first of its kind performed at UK HealthCare and the longest donor chain to date in Kentucky.

"UK HealthCare has been performing kidney transplants since 1964, but this is really a milestone for us and for the Commonwealth," said Dr. Roberto Gedaly, chief of Abdominal Transplant Surgery at UK HealthCare. "We're thrilled to come together today to celebrate our first successful kidney donor chain with donors, recipients, and many of the staff who made this complicated series of procedures possible."

Kidney donor chains, also called kidney paired exchanges, occur when a living kidney donor is incompatible with their intended recipient. The donor may agree to donate their kidney to a different patient, provided that their loved one receives a kidney from someone else. When multiple pairs are involved, this causes a domino effect, with each recipient receiving a matched kidney from a stranger.

While patients will be placed on the transplant list to receive a donor kidney, it may take weeks, months, or even years for an appropriately matched kidney to be found. While waiting for a match, patients may undergo dialysis multiple times a week, but their health usually continues to decline, leading to renal failure and eventually to death.

By participating in the donor chain, patients are likely to receive a kidney much sooner than if they had waited for one to become available via the transplant list. They also have the benefit of receiving a kidney from a live donor.

"Research shows that patients who are able to receive a kidney from a live donor have much better outcomes than those who receive a kidney from a deceased donor," said Dr. Stephen Strup, chief of the UK Division of Urological Surgery. "That's not always a possibility for many patients, and even if they have a willing donor, they're not always a good match. But with kidney donor chains gaining in popularity, it opens up a lot of doors for these patients."

Finding the appropriate patients for the donor chain was made possible with assistance from Nephrology Associates of Kentuckiana and the UK Transplant and Specialty Clinic at Norton Audubon Hospital in Louisville, Ky., who both refer patients for transplant and provide pre- and post-op care to patients in the region.

UK HealthCare performed the 8-person chain in-house over the course of two days, backed by a team of surgeons, nephrologists, nurses, pathologists, lab technicians, and many other staff from the UK Transplant Center and the UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital.

Four donors and four recipients participated, hailing from central and eastern Kentucky, Louisville, and southern Indiana. The chain was initiated by one altruistic donor who was willing to give her kidney to anyone who needed it: Nicki Coulter, a former nurse from Bloomfield, Ky.

"I used to be a nurse, and I just felt like this was something I needed to do," Coulter said. "I was blessed with good health and a good support system in my family. So I decided to do it!"

Altruistic donors are rare, though they have become more frequent in recent years. As kidney donor chains gain popularity in the U.S., these donors now have the potential to save multiple lives through the donation of a single kidney.

"With a kidney chain, the altruistic donor then benefits not just one person, but a whole group of people," Strup said. "Having that one person step up and offer to donate a kidney anonymously to anyone who needs it allows us to start matching incompatible pairs through the chain."

UK HealthCare performed 90 kidney transplants last year, with 26 of those coming from living donors. Though most people are born with two kidneys, many people can live a normal, healthy life with one kidney. When donors give away their second kidney, the remaining kidney can increase in size and become more efficient to return the donor to normal renal function.

To perform the kidney donor chain procedures, the UK Transplant Center joined the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) Kidney paired donation program and created new policies at UK HealthCare that were modeled after UNOS guidelines. With one successful kidney donor chain under their belt, the UK Transplant Center staff is already working on connecting the next chain.

"The gathering of these patients, donors and their families demonstrates the true depth and breadth of advanced subspecialty services at UK HealthCare," said Dr. Michael Karpf, UK executive vice president for health affairs. "Caring for highly complex patients who come to UK from across the Commonwealth and beyond to provide the most advanced treatment and procedures by our specialized, expert team of health care providers is not only our mission, but our promise and commitment to the region we serve."

UK PTS Encourages the Campus Community to Share the Road

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 15:11

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015) — The beginning of the academic year is accompanied by an increase in campus population. University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is reminding motorists, bicyclists and motor scooter users to use caution when interacting with each other, in order to safely share the road. As part of these efforts, PTS has developed safety tips for drivers, cyclists and motor scooter users alike.

PTS, in conjunction with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, Fayette County Public Schools, UK and Lexington Police and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, wants to promote safety on our roads. Cyclists and motorists (including motor scooter users) have the same rights, rules and responsibilities on most Kentucky roads. Below is a list of tips that will help keep the road a safe way to travel:


  • Be Alert: Check your mirrors. Watch for pedestrians and cyclists, yielding to them at crosswalks and intersections; pay special attention while driving on or around campus. Scan for cyclists before turning across a bike lane, driveway or onto another road.
  • Every Lane is a Bike Lane: Cyclists have a right to the road. Be alert and patient. Expect cyclists on the road at any time, especially on signed bike routes and on roads displaying the sharrow symbol on the roadway surface. Do not use a bike lane as a turn lane.
  • Pass with Care: Bicycles are considered vehicles and should be given the appropriate right of way. A minimum of three feet is recommended for passing cyclists. Stay behind cyclists when you are turning right. Don’t honk your horn when approaching cyclists; doing so could startle the cyclist and cause a crash.
  • Don’t Speed or Text: Follow posted speed limits and follow distracted driving laws; don’t text message while your vehicle is in motion.


  • Respect the Red: Bicycles are vehicles. Obey traffic rules for safety and to gain respect from motorists. Never ride against traffic; it is illegal and unsafe.
  • Be Safe, Be Seen: Use front and rear lights and wear bright or reflective clothing. Be predictable and make eye contact with motorists, and use hand signals to indicate your intentions.
  • Pass with Care: A minimum of three feet is recommended for passing vehicles.
  • Wear a Helmet: Helmet use dramatically reduces the risks of brain injury and death for cyclists involved in accidents.
  • Always Park at Bike Racks:  Locking your bike to anything other than a bike rack can cause access issues, fire hazards and other problems and is prohibited by University of Kentucky regulations. Just park at a bike rack. Rack locations can be found on the Bicycle Facilities map.

Additionally, cyclists are reminded to engage in safe sidewalk riding behaviors. Some campus sidewalks have been designated as shared sidewalks and, under certain conditions, serve as important connections for cyclists. These shared sidewalks are wide, do not run parallel to vehicular traffic and connect important campus destinations. Even so, these walks were designed for pedestrian traffic and bicyclists should always yield.

If you choose to ride your bike on any campus sidewalk, please follow these basic rules:

  • Always Yield to Pedestrians. Give audible warning, or dismount to pass when sidewalks are crowded or narrow.
  • Go Slow. Sidewalks are not designed for speeds faster than a slow jog.
  • Check Every Cross Street and Driveway. Vehicles often pull across the sidewalk before entering traffic or turn into driveways without scanning very far down the street.
  • Only Cross the Street at Crosswalks. Darting into the street mid-block is very dangerous.

Motor scooter users:

  • Use Appropriate Travel Avenues: Scooters, mopeds and motorcycles are not permitted to drive or travel on sidewalks, bike paths, bike lanes or lawns.
  • Utilize Appropriate Parking Areas: Scooters, mopeds and motorcycles are to use moped/motorcycle parking areas on campus. These areas are conveniently located throughout campus and are marked by the presence of signage, green lines or both. Mopeds may also park at moped-only parking racks, which are located in front of Memorial Coliseum and between Funkhouser Building and the Advanced Science and Technology Commercialization Center (ASTeCC). Scooters, motorcycles and mopeds are not authorized to park at bicycle racks, or in any area that is not listed above.

UK Choristers, Alums Present Tribute to Sara Holroyd on 35th Anniversary of 'A Shaker Worship Service'

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 14:55

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015) — The University of Kentucky Choristers will welcome home many of their talented alumni for a reunion concert focused on Shaker music and celebrating the 90th birthday of former director Sara Holroyd. The tribute concert marks the 35th anniversary of "A Shaker Worship Service" film and the "Music of the Shakers" LP. The free public concert will begin 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Singletary Center for the Arts.

In 1979, a historical landmark re-enactment of an original Shaker Worship Service was performed at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, Kentucky, by the UK Choristers. The original re-enactment was performed under the direction of UK Professor Sara Holroyd, and featured the work of renowned recording artist and choral composer Salli Terri. "A Shaker Worship Service" continued to be performed every year at Pleasant Hill until Holroyd's retirement.

This re-enactment was rehearsed and fleshed out in Room 17 in the Fine Arts Building, a room Holroyd’s students have since lovingly described as being holy and a sanctuary, so much so that they titled a song, written by alumnus Warren Cobb, in its honor.

In addition to staging the re-enactment at Pleasant Hill, the original performance was filmed for KET (Kentucky Educational Television) to air in 1980 and repeatedly ran throughout the early 1980s. A grant from the Kentucky Humanities Council provided funding for the film and taping. These uplifting services were seen by thousands of people from all over the globe who came to visit Shaker Village for its historical significance, including then newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

" A Shaker Worship Service" from Renee Collins on Vimeo.

The impact of the film was felt across the Bluegrass and appreciated by many worldwide. When asked about the film's influence and effect on others, Terri's daughter, Jennifer Biggs Walton said, "The first thing I thought after recently seeing this film was how wholeheartedly exuberant the men and women seemed to be. They are so removed from mainstream life but so free of the world’s focus on negativity. 'Tis the gift to be simple.'"

Beyond audiences around the world, the performers themselves were deeply touched by the experiences. The project helped foster relationships that have sustained long past the classroom. A Facebook group page, "UK Chorister Shakertown Memories," has more than 250 members who share a bond in bringing this story to life in the re-enactment. The performers and others associated with the concert in the group share memories and accounts of their experiences and have posted the film, pictures, music and programs from the event. Many still maintain relationships and feel they were "fueled to succeed in life by the very essence of the Shakertown performances and the powerful life altering inspirational guidance of Holroyd."

Holroyd taught at the UK School of Music for 26 years. A cornet player with no formal conducting training, she went on to become director of UK Choral Activities and conducted the Choristers, Chorus, Chorale, Madrigal Singers and the women’s and men’s glee clubs. She even prepared choruses four times for the Grammy Award-winning composer Robert Shaw, who noted that he had never worked with such a well prepared college choral group. Upon retiring in 1987, Holroyd left a collection of papers, photographs, letters and memories from her two decades at UK. It can be viewed in the UK Special Collections Research Center located at the Margaret I King Library Building.

Holroyd, who turned 90 this year, will be in attendance at this year's tribute and will get to see many of her former students perform again for her.

UK Choristers is the oldest performing organization at UK. Filled with underclassmen and representing a wide variety of majors, the group frequently performs on and off campus. This 55-voice mixed choir specializes in choral repertoire of all periods and styles, both a cappella and accompanied, and also performs a major work each year with the UK Symphony Orchestra, as well as hosts a successful music theater cabaret, "Night on Broadway." The Choristers tour frequently throughout the region.

The UK Choristers are housed at the UK School of Music at UK College of Fine Arts. The school has garnered a national reputation for high-caliber education in opera, choral and instrumental music performance, as well as music education, composition, and theory and music history.

UK Chorale to Open Season Masterfully

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 12:43

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015) — The 2015 University of Kentucky Chorale will return to Cathedral of Christ the King this weekend to make its debut as part of the "Cathedral Concert Series." The UK Chorale, under the direction of Jefferson Johnson, UK School of Music director of Choral Activities, will perform at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27. The one-hour "Masterworks" concert, featuring a performance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Coronation Mass," is free and open to the public.

In addition to the Mozart work, the UK Chorale concert will include four shorter new works: "O Nata Lux" by Jens Klimek; "Rytmus" by Ivan HruĆĄovský, "No Time" arranged by Susan Brumfield, and "Ezekiel," a spiritual arranged for double chorus by Stacey Gibbs. The "Coronation Mass" will be accompanied by organist Michael Rintamaa and a string trio. William White, a graduate student from St. Cloud, Minnesota, will serve as assistant conductor for the concert.

The UK Chorale is the premier mixed choral ensemble at UK. It consists mostly of upperclassmen and graduate students. While the majority of singers are music majors, there are a number of other academic disciplines represented within the ensemble. The 40-voice group prides itself in performing a wide variety of choral literature from Renaissance to 21st century. Most recently, the UK Chorale has performed Mozart’s "Requiem" with the UK Symphony Orchestra and the live score to Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film, "2001: A Space Odyssey." The UK Chorale was the first non-professional chorus in the world to perform the challenging Kubrick film score in its entirety.

UK Chorale has received regional and national awards — most recently an invitation to perform at the American Choral Directors Association convention with the Chattanooga Symphony in March 2015. The group has toured Italy (St. Marks Cathedral); Switzerland; France (Cathedral of Notre Dame, Chartres Cathedral, American Cathedral in Paris and La Madeleine Church; Washington, D.C. (Kennedy Center); the Bahamas (private performance in the Presidential Palace); and New York City (Carnegie Hall in 2001).

The "Cathedral Concert Series" is presented by the Cathedral of Christ the King Music Ministry. It is funded by the Cathedral of Christ the King endowment fund. Christ the King is located at 299 Colony Boulevard in Lexington.

Djibouti Leaders "see blue." While Visiting UK

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 12:06

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015) — During a recent visit to the Commonwealth of Kentucky, a delegation from the East African nation of Djibouti visited the University of Kentucky and experienced what it means to "see blue."

The visit included Aboubaker Hassan Ali, secretary general of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research for Djibouti; Madina Daher Okiye, secretary general of the University of Djibouti; Col. Mohamed Ali Obsieh, commander of Military Education; and Said Mohamed Farah, first secretary of the Djibouti Embassy.

The group was welcomed by Carey Cavanaugh, former U.S. Ambassador and director of the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce, and Patterson School students. From there, the delegation, along with representatives from the Kentucky National Guard, received a crash course on all things UK by Visitor Center Director Taylor Blair.

UK Army and Air Force ROTC also hosted the delegation at the Buell Armory and explained how UK ROTC programs impact students in the Commonwealth and beyond. After touring the campus, the group was presented with UK hats provided by UK Athletics.

The delegation is seeking ways to expand its current partnership with the Commonwealth and build partnerships with Kentucky universities. In June, the Kentucky National Guard and Djiboutian Armed Forces ratified a state partnership agreement, creating a long term stable relationship between the Commonwealth and one of America’s key allies in Africa.

Campuses to Former Students: ‘We Want You Back’

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 11:20

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015)  Kentucky needs more students like Barbara Calhoun of Raceland. Inspired to return to college to earn her degree after seeing her son graduate from the University of Kentucky, Calhoun realized that she owed it to herself and her family to finish what she started all those years ago.

Since graduating from Morehead State University in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in university studies, Calhoun says she has more confidence, and she has received two salary increases.

Now her sights are set on earning a master’s degree in chemical dependency so she can help families overcome drug addiction.

Kentucky’s public colleges and universities, in conjunction with the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), will sponsor a statewide Project Graduate Week to help former students with a significant number of credits return to college to finish their degrees. The week is set Sept. 28-Oct. 2, 2015.

CPE Executive Vice President Aaron Thompson credits much of the success of the nationally award-winning program to the highly trained advisors on each campus who specialize in working with adults.

“Project Graduate advisors take the guesswork out of transitioning to college by offering proactive advising and support services tailored to the needs of busy, working adults,” he said.

Four-year campuses will waive application fees for the spring 2016 term for returning students. The colleges of Kentucky Community and Technical College do not charge application fees. While services and incentives vary by campus, they include academic and career advising, priority admission and credit for prior learning.

“Project Graduate is a great initiative for students who want to complete their dream of finishing their undergraduate degree," said Mike Shanks, director of the University of Kentucky’s transfer center. "I enjoy knowing that I have helped in some small way in making this possible for them at UK.”

At the end of the spring 2015 semester, there were 363 participants enrolled through Project Graduate at UK with 85 students graduating. Since inception of the Project Graduate program, UK has had almost 1,700 participants and has graduated 600 students.

To qualify for Project Graduate, students must have 80 or more credit hours toward a bachelor’s degree or 30 or more toward an associate degree. 

“My favorite aspect of Project Graduate is getting to see the smiles on the faces of the individuals I help,” said Lisa P. Cox, Eastern Kentucky University’s director of student outreach and transition. “Some people are very anxious when they first inquire about completing a degree and some think that it is out of reach for them. It is so rewarding to help someone develop a plan and see it through.”

Statewide, more than 1,850 former students have earned degrees through Project Graduate since the 2008 launch and another 1,000 are in the pipeline.

Appalachian Residents Adopt Heart-Healthy Eating Habits through Cooking Intervention

Wed, 09/23/2015 - 10:43

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 24, 2015) — West Liberty resident Bonnie Burton describes her husband as a “meat-and-potatoes” eater who shuns broccoli and other green vegetables.

So it was with some skepticism that she presented him with a meatless, three-bean chili, a recipe she learned during a recent heart-healthy cooking course hosted at the Morgan County extension office. She expected her husband to pick through the soup, scouring his bowl for some semblance of beef. To her astonishment, he didn’t need much coaxing to finish the veggie-based meal — he actually gave it his seal of approval.

Burton enjoys cooking for her husband Marvin, a cancer survivor and pre-diabetic patient. With Marvin’s health concerns now influencing the family’s diet, Bonnie Burton proceeds with caution in the kitchen, cutting out sodium when possible and scrutinizing the nutrition labels of items at the grocery store. She never needed a class to teach her how to cook well, but the free monthly class available at her extension office gives her a fresh take on cooking within new health parameters.

“I know how to cook, but there’s always room for improvement,” Burton, 66, said.

Burton and about 180 other cooks in six Eastern Kentucky counties are practicing heart-healthy cooking techniques through their participation in the REACH (Rural Eating and Healthy Cooking) program. Hosted at each county’s local Cooperative Extension office once or twice a month, the classes take participants through the process of planning and cooking nutritious, budget-friendly meals using practical ingredients they can obtain in their local communities. The University of Kentucky College of Nursing and the K College of Agriculture, Food and Environment Department of Family and Consumer Sciences collaborated on the project, and are collecting qualitative and quantitative data on strategies to initiate dietary behavior.

During the classes, participants are given tools, such as vegetable peelers, to encourage healthy cooking at home. Participants also receive the American Heart Association’s official heart-healthy cookbook free of charge. Instructors guide participants through each step of making a specific meal from the cookbook. After class, participants take the meal home, where they have the option to replicate it for their families. Study participants send the research team their grocery receipts each month for measuring changes in fruit and vegetable intake and, saturated fat intake.  

Through REACH, UK nursing professor Frances Hardin-Fanning, the principal investigator on the study, hopes to gather valuable information about overcoming the various environmental barriers that hinder healthy eating in rural populations. Throughout the 12-month study, trained interventionists provide health coaching for an experimental group of study participants. The purpose of the coaching is to identify the participants’ barriers to healthy eating and offer motivation for improving eating habits. During the coaching session, Cheryl Witt, the interventionist, reviews healthy eating goals with participants and evaluates the participant’s progress toward those goals.

“There are a lot of things beyond your ability to change,” Hardin-Fanning said of the difficulties people in rural communities can have with eating healthy diets. “But cooking healthy food at home is not one of them.”

Part of Hardin-Fanning’s motivation to implement REACH in Appalachia stems from her roots in Eastern Kentucky. Her mother ran a local grocery store in Breathitt County where she grew up. After leaving home to pursue an education, Hardin-Fanning returned to visit Breathitt County decades later and observed drastic changes in the local food system. Without proximity to local highways and thoroughfares, many parts of Appalachia are cut off from fresh food sources and deliveries. As an additional barrier to health eating, Hardin-Fanning noticed socioeconomic constraints, which resulted in people eating cheaper foods, relying on fast food or packaged meals rather than home-cooked meals.

“I knew if people could learn how to eat healthy within the reality of their own means, it would make a difference,” Hardin-Fanning said. “If you look at the science, there is a lot of research that says it’s the simple, fresh foods that matter.”

In the process of the study, Hardin-Fanning said many participants discovered a new favorite vegetable or ended the bad habit of walking down the snack aisle of their grocery store. Many participants approached the cooking class as a fun event or extracurricular activity with a spouse or child. Regardless of their reasons for attending, all participants were exposed to heart-healthy habits.

For Bonnie Burton, the classes changed her perception of dull and flavorless heart-healthy cooking. She has started incorporating fresh herbs to boost the flavor of heart-healthy meals. She covets the heart-healthy cherry crisp as one of her favorite new desserts — a recipe Marvin and her son Greg will gobble up too.

UK Student Financial Wellness Center Strengthens Commitment to Student Success

Tue, 09/22/2015 - 19:04

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 23, 2015) — The University of Kentucky, under the leadership of Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration Eric Monday, recently launched the UK Student Financial Wellness Center — a program designed to impart financial knowledge upon undergraduate, graduate and prospective students.

The center responds to a rising issue within higher education.

“Financial literacy is a crucial issue at institutions nationally,” Monday said. “We know that whether students return to the university for a new semester, and whether they ultimately graduate, often depends a great deal on successfully navigating financial issues. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to prepare them for success — for both while they are on our campus and after they graduate.”

In the 2013 Health Behavior Study, 16 percent of UK students reported that their academic performance was negatively impacted by finances.  Additionally, of the 41.7 percent of students who reported stress, 49.5 percent reported that money and finances were the cause. 

Recognizing these concerns, the UK Office of Wellness Initiatives for Student Empowerment (WISE) spent the 2014-2015 academic year broadening its scope of health promotion and prevention to include various areas of wellness. The office established its foundation upon the nine dimensions of wellness, of which finance is included (emotional, career, social, spiritual, physical, financial, intellectual, creative, and environmental). 

While some individual offices and programs have provided financial literacy or education for their respective student populations, Director of the Office of Wellness Initiatives for Student Empowerment Drew Smith said that the office identified a need for a centralized program, which provides consistent messaging to a larger population of our students.

“The needs of the typical freshman may include a greater understanding of student loans, interest, and basic budgeting.” Smith said. “Sophomores are typically moving to off-campus locations, so a spending plan may be more necessary as they will likely be paying for rent, utilities, and groceries for the first time.  As they get closer to entering the job market, upperclassmen and graduate students will see benefit in learning more about retirement, investing, and big-ticket item purchasing such as cars and home-buying.”

Efforts to help improve student financial wellness will include tactics such as peer coaching, financial wellness seminars, online education programs, and purposeful collaboration with academic departments.

Smith also hopes to utilize peer financial educators to serve as financial coaches to provide one-on-one consultation for students. This would not serve as financial advising for investment purposes, but rather for a more specific emphasis on individual needs such as income-based budgeting and goal-setting savings plans.

“What we found from site visits, conferences, and training workshops was that not only is our program in its infancy, but the subject of financial wellness among college students is a relatively new area of health promotion,” Smith said. “Therefore, we are taking a deliberate and pragmatic approach to the issue.”

Throughout the fall semester, under the leadership of the new financial wellness specialist, Tiffany Hornberger, the office will focus on determining financial wellness trends and knowledge deficits among UK students. The staff will also utilize pre-existing programs such as UK101 and UK201’s financial wellness lesson plan, to build upon current best practices while identifying student leaders to serve as the inaugural group of peer financial wellness educators.

In the spring, the staff will focus on training peer financial wellness educators and providing pilot educational programs to UK students. The office also plans to collaborate with Jennifer Hunter in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment to develop consistent and sustained educational programs, including a Financial Wellness Week, which will also serve as the official “kickoff” for the Student Financial Wellness Center.

The Office of Wellness Initiatives for Student Empowerment also created the Financial Wellness Advisory Board in the spring of 2015.  This committee includes the EVPFA and campus leaders from Enrollment Management, Student Government, Undergraduate Education and members of faculty. 

“We look forward to continuing our commitment to student success through this important initiative,” Monday said. “Students are, after all, at the center of everything we do at the University of Kentucky.”

Students Can't Afford to Miss This Adventure

Tue, 09/22/2015 - 17:24

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 23, 2015) — The Johnson Center is an integral part of the University of Kentucky campus. With thousands of students visiting every year, it’s easy to see why the staff is so student oriented. They even put this ideal over making money.

Few exemplify this ideal more than Mark Lattin, director of club sports and outdoor pursuits. He believes the adventure trips that the Johnson Center produces every semester have a positive impact on students, and not just because of the low cost.

Adventure Trips are exactly what they sound like. UK students pay and sign up to do amazing outdoorsy things with other students. This semester there are currently eight trips planned, and Lattin points out that students don’t have to be an extreme "outdoors" person or athletic to enjoy the trips. These are experiences that just about anyone can enjoy.

The trips range from a tour of the caves at Mammoth Cave National Park to a three-day mountain backpacking trip in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia; from a mindfulness hike to adventure racing in the Red River Gorge; and from white water rafting in Georgia to bouldering in Tennessee. The point of these trips is to build camaraderie with other students, to gain confidence, and to meet new friends.

And did we mention how reasonably priced the trips are? The most expensive is the white water rafting trip at $160 per person. Other trips average about $50. Visit for details. And don’t forget to check the schedule for the spring semester events.

“We try to do something different each semester that we haven't done before or at least not for a long while,” Lattin said.

The Johnson Center also schedules a trip over Spring Break for those who have been there, done that in Panama City.

“We plan these amazing trips that might not be feasible for a college student to both plan and afford,” he said. "Generally speaking, our program operates on a break-even basis, so students are paying what it costs us for them to go. We're not making a profit at all."

So, if you want to be a part of what could be one of your most memorable college experiences, visit the Johnson Center to sign up for a trip. But hurry, spaces fill quickly.

UK's Robert Cass Named Astronaut Scholar

Tue, 09/22/2015 - 11:52

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 23, 2015) — The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) has selected University of Kentucky senior Robert Cass, of Lexington, as one of this year's 38 recipients of the prestigious $10,000 scholarship. The ASF Scholarship is presented annually to outstanding college students majoring in science, technology, engineering or math.

For more than 30 years, the ASF has identified and supported the best and brightest undergraduate students pursuing educations in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields across the nation. The Astronaut Scholarship is known for being among the most significant merit-based scholarships awarded to undergraduate STEM students. Candidates must be nominated by faculty of the participating universities based on their display of initiative, creativity and excellence in their chosen field.

ASF has awarded more than $4 million to deserving students around the U.S. to date. UK students have earned a total of $161,000 from the ASF since 1998.

Robert Cass, the son of Valerie and Wayne Cass, graduated from Lafayette High School in 2012 before coming to UK. At the university, he is pursuing a bachelor's degree in mathematics. A member of the Honors Program, Cass was also named a Chellgren Fellow in the UK Academy for Undergraduate Excellence.

Cass is encouraged by the recognition from the foundation. "Receiving this award reinforces my commitment to work hard in achieving my academic goals," he said.

UK's 2015 Astronaut Scholar found his passion for math in his teens when he participated in a national competition. The experience helped him realize that there is more to the field of study than memorizing formulas and doing repetitive calculations. His work with professors at UK and other institutions have only strengthened that interest for a career in academics.

"I am fascinated by the countless puzzles offered by mathematics, and by the surprising links that often exist between seemingly disparate problems. I am eager to continue my studies and pursue a career in research, so that I may contribute to our growing body of mathematical knowledge," Cass said.

As an undergraduate, Cass has been active in research both at the university and outside UK. He has participated in two NSF-REU (National Science Foundation - Research Experiences for Undergraduates) focused on mathematics in the summers of 2013 and 2014 at Clemson University and Texas A&M University respectively. This summer, Cass participated in the Undergraduate Summer School at the Park City Mathematics Institute.

At UK, Cass has participated in several independent study courses and informal seminars in number theory under the guidance of Professor David Leep. He also worked with Leep on a project in number theory, which began as a final paper in a "History of Mathematics" course taught by Associate Professor Ben Braun and extended beyond the conclusion of the course. The Astronaut Scholar credits both Leep and Braun as mentors at the university.

Upon completion of his bachelor's degree, Cass plans to pursue a doctoral degree in mathematics.

The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation is a nonprofit organization established by the Mercury Astronauts in 1984. Its goal is to aid the United States in retaining its world leadership in science and technology by providing scholarships for exceptional college students pursuing degrees in these fields. Today, more than 100 astronauts from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs have joined in this educational endeavor. For more information on this foundation, visit online at

UK students interested in the Astronaut Scholarship may apply through the university’s Office of Nationally Competitive Awards. Part of the Academy of Undergraduate Excellence within the Division of Undergraduate Education, the office assists current UK undergraduate and graduate students and recent alumni in applying for external scholarships and fellowships funded by sources (such as a nongovernment foundation or government agency) outside the university. These major awards honor exceptional students across the nation. Students who are interested in these opportunities are encouraged to begin work with Pat Whitlow at the Office of Nationally Competitive Awards well in advance of the scholarship deadline.
