We envision a University of Kentucky where a global mindset is integral to our teaching, research, service, and operations; where diverse cultural perspectives are included and valued; and where global learning is broadly accessible.
Through our collective expertise and shared advocacy, the UK International Center cultivates and advances global learning, understanding, and connection by leading, supporting, and inspiring global engagement.
Led by the Associate Provost for Internationalization, The University of Kentucky International Center supports the Office of the Provost, including colleges and key academic units, as well as the entire University of Kentucky community, leading internationalization efforts across campus.
Acting in an advisory capacity to the Provost and to the Associate Provost for International Programs, the International Advisory Council (IAC), through the work of its subcommittees, guides internationalization at the University of Kentucky.
Specifically, IAC members, representing each of UK's colleges and a variety of other campus units, serve as two-way communicators – informing the UK International Center leadership and others on campus of international engagement priorities and initiatives forming in their home colleges or units, and sharing news of UK International Center programs and opportunities with their home colleges or units. The IAC also serves as a forum for discussing trends in internationalization in higher education, and for sharing ideas regarding all facets of international learning, research and service.
