Reinvented Operations for the 2020-2021 Academic Year
The distinctive residential educational experience we provide at UK has attracted thousands of students from across Kentucky, the country and the globe. That experience is critical for the future. This differentiated education will be more necessary than ever to help us and our students meet the ongoing and daunting new challenges our world must now confront.
To reach our goal, we've acted quickly to reinvent or reimagine what is normal in the wake of this public health crisis. To that end, we want to share with you the process we have undertaken and the guiding principles we have followed.
Who We Are
Our playbook to return to a reinvented and reimagined campus this year is the culmination of the work of more than 500 people across our campus over the course of more than three months.
In an important sense, it underscores the deep commitment of an entire campus – a campus community committed to the mission of the University of Kentucky to educate, to serve, to conduct research and to provide care.
An interdisciplinary group of UK HealthCare physicians and clinical and research leaders at the University of Kentucky — the START (Screening, Testing and Tracing, to Accelerate Restart and Transition) team — continues to examine the health and safety issues related to reinvented and safe operations for our campus this year.
Our Health Corps is working around the clock to ensure our students and their families have the best available support and information.
