About Us

About UsMission: Our mission is to enhance the academic experience of all students at the University of Kentucky by providing programs and services that support students in mastering the skills needed to become successful lifelong learners.

Services are student-responsive and programs are purposefully student-centric and intentionally designed to foster interactions that promote learning strategies and attitudes towards academic life that are characteristic of successful college students. Academic Enhancement considers student success to mean that those who enroll in the university remain enrolled, persist through a program of study and graduate with a degree. Success is also achieved if students acquire competitive grades; if they engage in a broad range of intellectual endeavors, practical skills development, critical inquiry, self-efficacy and self-directed learning; are exposed to viewpoints different from their own; and if they learn to appreciate and respect the varying perspectives characteristic of a public liberal arts institution
