The University of Kentucky is dedicated to its commitment to improve the quality of life of Kentuckians through engagement, outreach and service. The Office of Community Engagement was established to support this effort of intentionally building partnerships that are collaborative, sustainable and mutually beneficial. The OCE connects organizations, community groups, schools and agencies to the University’s students, faculty and staff in an effort to promote this true sense of engagement.
