Workforce and Economy

An educated and skilled workforce fuels economic growth. From preschool programs to higher education to adult learning and professional "re-training," the University of Kentucky partners with communities throughout Appalachia to prepare, advance, and expand strong workforces that support quality of life and well-being for everyone, right where they live. We also work with communities to align workforce development with the local and regional needs, support and attract industry, and facilitate innovation and entrepreneurship.
