The Office of the Provost: A Resource for the Entire Campus
The Provost's office at the University of Kentucky is truly an office for the University of Kentucky. My vision for this office builds upon enhancing the academic excellence, brand and reputation of our institution. This involves cultivating strong and long-lasting partnerships with the campus community and fostering a culture of continuous improvement, trust, collaboration, diversity and inclusion. The Provost's office is a resource for colleges, deans, students, faculty and staff at the University of Kentucky.
We live in a time of tremendous change and opportunity. That's true of our economy; it's true of higher education. It’s true of our institution. However, our university is forging a path forward, and we are undergoing an exciting transformation.
The 2013-2014 academic year will be a partnership year, as we collaboratively work together on several important initiatives, such as the University's Strategic Plan and the implementation of a new financial budget model. I am committed to thorough communication across campus throughout all phases of these processes.
With that said, our institution has already built great momentum-- momentum that will continue to drive us forward. We have engaged in a public-private partnership to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in living and learning, research and academic space for our students. We've developed a new core curriculum that has gained national accolades for its commitment to innovation and creativity. We’ve established collaborative relationships with international institutions, allowing our students to gain global literacy. We've also continued our commitment to academic excellence by enrolling record numbers of students in terms of both quality and diversity.
Our investments and successes are guided by the compelling vision that President Capilouto, our Board of Trustees and so many others are united behind for this university: to be the institution of choice for students in the Commonwealth and the region, and to be the pre-eminent place for education, research and service that transforms our state. This mission of education, research and service has guided us, as the Commonwealth's land grant, flagship institution, for nearly 150 years. Thank you for your interest in the work of the Office of the Provost.

All the best,
