About UK Regulations

Kentucky law (KRS 164.180 and KRS 164.200) authorizes the UK Board of Trustees to establish regulations for the government of the university. Under that authority, the Board has adopted the UK Governing Regulations (GR) to establish the broad principles and policies for the university. The Board has authorized the President to establish Administrative Regulations (AR), Human Resources Policies and Procedures, and Business Procedures, to implement the policies established in the GRs.  The Board has authorized the University Senate to establish the broad academic policies for the university.
