Partners in Community,
Telling Our Stories Together

With 150 years of education, research, service and care for the Commonwealth, the University of Kentucky is truly the university for Kentucky. Our work is deeply rooted in a sense of community and in a spirit of partnership because we know that working together is the best way to positively impact lives and address complex challenges. Only when you’re working shoulder to shoulder with people, in the place where they live, do you fully understand what is possible.

That's why we're partnering with communities to improve health, education, the economy, the environment, and quality of life. Throughout Appalachia, UK faculty, staff and students are combining the expertise and resources of our campus with the expertise and resources in communities to create real and lasting impact.

We, too, look toward the hills and mountains - for help and shelter, for partnership and meaning, for stronger communities and for a brighter future for our Commonwealth.
