March 20, 2001 – (Lexington, Ky.) – University of Kentucky faculty are invited to register for the tenth annual UK Faculty Tour of the Commonwealth, May 21-25, an intensive five-day experience enabling faculty to learn first-hand about Kentucky, its students, and its diverse populations. In the process, they will gain personal and professional benefits extending far beyond the tour. They also gain a deeper appreciation of the University's teaching, research and land-grant missions and its commitment to engagements with the people of Kentucky.

Deadline for applications and accompanying letter of interest is March 30.

The tour incorporates over 1,000 miles of travel and strong, diverse experiences to promote professional and personal discovery, broaden the scope and relevance of one's career, and deepen one's understanding of Kentucky, its students, and its opportunities and challenges.

An orientation briefing on May 8 will help participants get acquainted with one another, the University and the purpose of the tour.   Introductory materials and refreshments will be provided.

Faculty will travel on a state-of-the-art, air-conditioned, restroom-equipped motor coach with audio/video capability that serves as a traveling classroom.  All meals and snacks will be provided, sampling regional food at historic establishments and dinning with local citizens.

While tenure-track faculty have priority, tenured UK faculty are eligible on a space-available basis.  Selection is expected to be highly competitive, and a committee will review all applications.  Applications are available in the Lexington Campus Chancellor's Office or by calling 859-257-8428.   Those selected will be notified in mid-April..
