Welcome to the Office for Faculty Advancement!




UK Human Resources is hosting an upcoming "Leading with Care" virtual summit

In this virtual summit, you'll learn about ways to:

1. Cultivate, normalize, and model care as a leader

2. Inspire innovation and ingenuity.

3.  Employ practices to build belonging.

One of the best ways to enhance employee engagement - and improve our retention efforts - is by building skills as a compassionate, caring leader.
