The University of Kentucky’s history is marked by resilience and shaped by an unyielding and compassionate commitment to those we serve. Today, informed by that past, we are focused on the future. 

We are the pulse of our state’s economy and the hands that heal its communities. We are the voice of Kentucky’s arts and letters and the power behind discoveries that uplift and advance. The University of Kentucky is fulfilling an ambitious vision established by the President and its Board of Trustees.

This place has been – and continues to be – home to pioneers and providers, bold dreamers and strategic thinkers, who make our vision and work possible. Thanks to the efforts of those who came before us, we are poised to do more and be more for those we serve.

Together, guided by the leadership of the Board of Trustees, we will show the world what Kentucky can do.
