University Review Committee Report

The University of Kentucky is the Commonwealth’s flagship higher-education institution, with a mission of “improving people’s lives through excellence in education, research and creative work, service, and health care.” Since 1997, UK has recommitted itself to becoming an “institution defined by academic excellence, world-class research, and vigorous engagement in communities across Kentucky.”

Mindful of this mission and legacy, President Capilouto convened a University Review Committee to lead a discussion about how UK can build on its strengths and recent achievements to best serve all its constituents in the next decade. The Committee is comprised of both academic and administrative representatives and has a collective institutional knowledge spanning several strategic planning efforts.

Early in his tenure, the President charged the Committee with providing a current situation assessment, suggested improvement directions, and an outline of next steps. It is structured into the following five sections:

I. Process
II. UK’s Current Position
III. Strengths and Challenges
IV. Improvement Directions
V. Advancing UK
