A Message From President Capilouto
The University of Kentucky is an institution with momentum. And as faculty, students, staff and supporters of UK, you are what make that progress and momentum possible.
With new high-tech residence halls, concrete plans — and one project underway with our Gatton College of Business and Economics — to construct vibrant learning and research spaces, an undergraduate core curriculum that is drawing national praise and researchers recognized around the globe for the work they do that changes lives and communities, the University of Kentucky has a vision to be a nationally recognized public institution with global reach and a commitment to our Commonwealth.
That's our vision; but every vision requires a plan.
This website outlines the process underway now to form this plan, which will help guide our actions, and how we measure our progress, in maintaining and enhancing our momentum — in moving forward as the Commonwealth's indispensable institution in a changing and challenging world.
This plan will outline both the vision and the specific steps we need to take as we seek to leverage our strengths in compelling and distinctive ways.
Please explore this website to learn more about the key initiatives in the plan and how our institution will continue to honor its historic legacy, while seeking transformation to meet the moral and financial imperatives of a new era in American higher education.
We need your feedback and involvement in this critically important process. If we are to see tomorrow, we all need to be involved in this process today. You can link to our vision statement and guiding principles for the planning process here.
In the days, weeks and months ahead, this site will become a robust clearinghouse for information about this process and how you can join the conversation.
Thanks and "see blue."
