Mission

As Kentucky's flagship institution, the University plays a critical leadership role by promoting diversity, inclusion, economic development, and human well-being.

Our Guiding Principles

The University is driven by the promise it has made to Kentucky, one that honors its land-grant mission and a heritage honed through 150 years of service to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Six principles guide our efforts. They are: creating a vibrant undergraduate learning community, advancing a high-quality graduate and professional education portfolio, cultivating a robust research environment, developing a strong and sustainable UK infrastructure, fostering a positive work environment for faculty and staff, and ensuring a meaningful impact on the Commonwealth and the community.

Research

In fiscal year 2016, the University of Kentucky was awarded $316.5 million in external grants and contracts. UK is one of only eight universities across the country with the full range of undergraduate, graduate, professional and medical programs on one contiguous campus, leading to groundbreaking discoveries and unique cross-disciplinary research and scholarship. Moreover, UK is currently one of only 22 public institutions with a trifecta of federal designations of excellence in research: for aging, in cancer and in translational science. A new $265 million research facility, due to open in 2018, will bring together clinicians, scientists and scholars from across UK’s campus to reduce health gaps in Kentucky. These health gaps include cancer, cardiovascular disease & stroke, diabetes & obesity, substance abuse, and neuroscience & aging.

Research at UK is a dynamic enterprise encompassing both traditional scholarship and emerging technologies. UK is one of eight universities in the U.S. that has well-established programs in agriculture, engineering, medicine and pharmacy on a single campus, leading to groundbreaking discoveries and unique interdisciplinary collaboration.

In 2013, the UK Markey Cancer Center announced its designation as a National Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. This designation places UK among an elite group of 22 research universities that can boast the "Triple Crown" of federal research awards: NCI designation, the Clinical Translational Sciences Award, and a federally supported Alzheimer's Disease Center.

Passion for people and a vision for the "medical campus of the future" have inspired leading physicians and researchers from across the United States to join UK. Their research agenda is balanced with outreach to affiliated and partner hospitals, so Kentucky families can receive high-quality health care at home and travel to Lexington for only the most advanced, complex medical care and procedures.
