"Presentation U" is the name for the University of Kentucky’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), and represents new opportunities students will soon have to improve their presentation skills across various platforms. The intention is to improve the student learning experience with a focus on developing integrated oral, written, visual and multimedia communication skills. While many students utilize similar services at UK currently, such as the Writing Center, CELT, the Study, the MC3 Lab, eStudio and the Hub, "Presentation U" will collaborate with these programs, while also offering a unique service to faculty in developing opportunities in their courses for students to learn these skills.

The QEP is one of 12 core requirements the university takes on to reaffirm its accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). SACS reaffirmation of accreditation is mandatory for the university.

SACS will evaluate "Presentation U" as UK's QEP in the spring of 2013.
