Operation Varsity Blues


“The allegations raised in this investigation are extremely serious. If true, the fraud alleged is directly counter to the values we all hold dear as representatives of colleges and universities – honesty and transparency, a commitment to learning, and preparation of young men and women to lead lives of meaning and purpose. Universities rely on the testing agencies to meet assurances of a standardized and ethical process in the way exams are administered. When there are inconsistencies or issues, we depend on these agencies to notify us. When national cases like the charges announced occur, we should all take a step back and assess what we do and how we do it. Our procedures are designed to create a fair and honest process for applying and earning admission. At UK, we are proud of the comprehensive review we conduct of student applications, which balances test scores and academic performance in the classroom along with a commitment to community and service.”
