College/Unit: The Graduate School

What services do you and your teammates provide to campus?

The primary mission of the Academic Services and Records Office is to contribute academic support and services to graduate students as they matriculate and to ensure the accuracy of all student records, as well as the integrity of policies and procedures involving degree completion at UK. Our primary “customers” are the graduate students who inquire about, enroll in, and successfully complete degree requirements in the university’s graduate programs. In addition, we work closely with the staff, faculty, and administrators of the university’s graduate programs and departments. We also support the interests and needs of our graduate programs by providing timely processing, assistance, training, and guidance. This office understands that the ultimate success of our graduate students and programs depends in part upon the quality of service we provide. Thus, we are committed to providing the highest possible quality of service to all clients.

Tell us about your collaboration with ITS and the ITS services that your department utilizes:

My unit depends greatly on the support and services provided by ITS, especially since a lot of our work involves the use of Enterprise Applications. We count tremendously on ITS for our student data as we generate reports and information that is shared with students, faculty, and directors of graduate studies. Personally, as a UK 101 instructor, Canvas has been a great platform for classroom management which allows me to make course content available in a timely fashion. The ITS leadership are always looking to improve the product they provide for the UK community and I am appreciative of their forward thinking.
