Key University Partners

The University of Kentucky has joined with a small number of universities worldwide to cooperate on strategically important internationalization activities. These key partnerships serve as platforms for new initiatives, expand opportunities for bilateral and multilateral collaboration, advance critically important institutional objectives, and accrue benefits not only to the partners themselves but also to our communities.

International Research

Research crosses boundaries and borders. The best ideas, the most transformative science, the freshest art, can come from anywhere. The UK International Center supports faculty in doing research outside the U.S., building partnerships, and strengthening global professional networks.


To assist faculty with their international research, teaching and service, the UK International Center provides information and advice. The UK International Center also promotes opportunities for faculty to engage in new international initiatives and experiences.
