UKIC / Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan


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.

Priority I: Inspiring Global Learning and Discovery

Priority II: Fostering a Globally Engaged Kentucky

Priority III: Creating a UK Global Hub

As we educate our students and prepare them for a modern, competitive workforce, we must impart global awareness and intercultural competencies.
