LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 9, 2004) -- The University of Kentucky Self-study for NCAA Division One Certification steering committee will host a campus and community forum at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, in the E.S. Good Barn, located on campus near the intersection of Farm Road and University Drive.

The public, including UK students, faculty and staff, is invited to attend the forum, which is designed to hear comments or suggestions to the self-study committee. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and parking is available adjacent to the Good Barn.

The steering committee and its three subcommittees have taken an in-depth look at three areas relating to the operation of the UK Athletics Department: governance and rules compliance, academic integrity, and equity and student-athlete welfare.

“Getting campus and community input into the process is one of the goals of the NCAA Self-study,” said Connie Ray, chair of the steering committee and UK’s vice president for institutional research, planning, and effectiveness. “Our focus groups with student-athletes, coaches and support staff, as well as our meetings with other campus constituencies have been enlightening and valuable to this process,” added Ray. “Now we would like to give the public a chance to give us their comments and suggestions.”
