Every communication from the University of Kentucky contributes to the university’s reputation, and the most basic component of a strong institutional image is a unified visual presentation. Our name stands as the sum of the institution’s many parts and embodies the authentic, recognizable essence of this institution.

UK Public Relations and Marketing is charged with developing and supporting the university’s graphic standards. Its role also includes helping individuals and departments in the preparation and dissemination of communication that meets the high standards set by our institution and shares the good work of our students, faculty, staff and alumni. UK PR&M manages the University's brand and is responsible for the University's advertising campaigns and web presence.

UK PR&M manages UKNow, the University's official news website.
