The UK International Center actively promotes international opportunities for academic exchange and scholarly collaboration. We develop relationships with educational institutions throughout the world; cooperate with international partners on student exchanges, and joint research projects.
Because of our international partnerships, our students are gaining the knowledge, skills, and understanding they need to function abroad and to become leaders in their chosen careers. Our international involvement is also opening new markets to Kentucky companies and making possible cutting-edge research that will directly benefit the Commonwealth, its businesses, and its citizens.
UK’s international work spans its 16 colleges. The College of Agriculture has the longest history of work overseas, whereas the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Communication and Information Studies, Engineering, Education and the Martin School of Diplomacy have also done extensive work abroad.
