LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 14, 2020) — University of Kentucky student support officials will discuss the current campus landscape as it relates to COVID-19, as well as the institution’s robust student support infrastructure, in a Facebook Live event noon Thursday, Sept. 17, at www.facebook.com/universityofky/.

Lance Poston, co-project director of UK Health Corps, and Trisha Clement-Montgomery, acting dean of students, will discuss UK’s approach to supporting students’ health, safety and well-being during the fall 2020 semester.

The event will be moderated by UK Student Government Association President Courtney Wheeler.

“The principles that have driven us from the beginning include keeping people safe, healthy and informed,” Poston said. “We look forward to discussing these important issues with our campus community.”

Individuals can submit questions for the event by emailing coronavirus@uky.edu.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion three years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" two years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for four straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
