Presentation U! is UK's Quality Enhancement Plan (part of the requirements for our SACS-COC accreditation). This initiative officially began January 1, 2014, and it will reach across the University to serve:
Faculty: PresentationU! mentors (10 faculty and graduate students from African American Studies, Communication, English, Instructional Communication, Library and Information Science, and Writing/Rhetoric/Digital Media) will work with Faculty Fellows -- see the list of Fellows below -- to develop instructional modules, assignments, grading rubrics, and assessment methods. In addition, workshops will be held each semester that are open to all teaching faculty and staff.
Graduate students: an opportunity to work with mentors and faculty in their programs to implement and assess the Composition & Communication Graduation Requirement for undergraduates successfully
Upper division undergraduate students: an opportunity to apply for internships to work in PresentationU labs/studios to help other students as mentors complete and refine their communication projects and to get help themselves in the labs as their work on their own projects
First-year students: mentoring and tutoring assistance in studios/labs across campus to hone their oral, written, and visual communication skills, as well as make a connection with upperclass students who can help them acculturate successfully to college life.
