We have a compelling vision for the University of Kentucky—to be one of the handful of outstanding public, residential research institutions nationally, one with an unwavering commitment to our Commonwealth. 

To make that ambitious vision a reality, throughout the past year, students, faculty and staff across our campus, working on several committees, have devoted countless hours to developing the University of Kentucky Strategic Plan.We are very grateful for these outstanding efforts on behalf of our institution. The work they have done thus far has yielded rich data and tremendous ideas for how we can move forward as institution boldly and thoughtfully.

Now, we are ready to take the next step in completing the Strategic Plan, with the goal of presenting it to our Board of Trustees for its consideration in June.

President Capilouto and Provost Tracy met with the co-chairs of the Strategic Plan committees in early March to outline the next steps forward. Efforts over the next several weeks will focus on refining the important work done in five areas:

  1. Undergraduate student success
  2. Diversity and inclusivity
  3. Community engagement and impact
  4. Graduate education (we will address professional education initiatives separately once this process is completed)
  5. Research
