Strategic Plan V2

Please find below the 3 pillars of our Strategic Plan

Inspiring Global Learning and Discovery

Today’s students need a global mindset to be ready to lead lives of meaning and purpose, because global perspectives are critical for success in today’s interconnected, interdependent world. Students, faculty, and staff benefit from the chance to practice intercultural communication and by doing so contribute to making UK a more truly inclusive community. Research and creative scholarship, especially transdisciplinary efforts, are strengthened by global perspectives. We must infuse a global mindset throughout curricula and across the research enterprise.

Fostering a Globally Engaged Kentucky

UK is home to a rich diversity of experiences and perspectives, and the Commonwealth of Kentucky is deeply embedded in global networks. To become a more welcoming campus, and to support a thriving, more globally aware, diverse, and inclusive Commonwealth, we must make meaningful connections with local businesses and organizations, and with our alumni.

Creating a UK Global Hub

To serve the Commonwealth, the University of Kentucky must be even more globally engaged. We need to identify and leverage our existing strengths, exploit opportunities, and better position the University of Kentucky as a dynamic public land-grant research university in an ever more competitive global higher education landscape. The UK International Center will be the central campus hub to catalyze and support global engagement.
