EVPHA search committee named

As we begin a national search for our next Executive Vice President for Health Affairs (EVPHA), it’s critical we have a search committee that represents the depth and breadth of our campus and understands how essential this enterprise is to what we do to advance Kentucky.

Supporting the success of our students

This spring, for the first time ever, more than 31,000 students were enrolled at the University of Kentucky at the start of the semester.

Celebrating MLK Day; Your safety and well-being

On Monday, thousands gathered downtown to march together and honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Staying safe in severe weather

Today’s warning should be a timely reminder for all of us – myself included – that safety and weather alerts must be taken seriously. Ensuring the health, safety and well-being of our community requires all of us to follow procedures and protocols and take responsible steps and precautions when alerts are issued.

Four important updates to start the new year

A new semester means new opportunities and challenges for our students (and everyone in our community). Let’s work together to support each other.

Thanking those who make our return possible

Over the last several days, as most of us I hope had time for rest and renewal, dozens and dozens of members of our facilities management, athletics, risk management, police department, crisis management, information technology services, communications, housing, residence life, safety and health teams worked around the clock to keep our infrastructure working in the face of bitter, below-zero weather.

Thank you for advancing Kentucky

This time of year always presents us with an opportunity to reflect on what matters most.

Acting EVPHA leadership and our continued work

To that end, I have asked Provost Robert S. DiPaola and Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration Eric N. Monday to serve as Co-Acting EVPHAs during this period of transition.

A historic week; preparing for the end of the semester

This week, Ashland-based King’s Daughters officially became part of the UK family. The largest employer in northeastern Kentucky, this strong regional health system has decades of service as an outstanding provider of care.

Reflecting on what happened; moving forward together

I want to provide updates following the recent violent and racist assault that horrified so many of us and deeply traumatized Black students, employees and community members.
