#WomenOfUK: How Sue Roberts Views UK's Role in the World

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 11, 2019) The University of Kentucky community is celebrating Women’s History Month. Throughout March, UKNow will feature the women — past and present — on whose shoulders we stand and whose hard work has made our achievements possible. With a combination of fierce resolve and deep compassion, UK women have left indelible marks on our university. Join us as we highlight these #WomenOfUK.

Sue Roberts, the University of Kentucky’s associate provost for internationalization, is aware each day how much smaller the world seems than the day before.

As a professor of geography in the UK College of Arts and Sciences, Roberts is a global thinker. She has dedicated herself to helping students, faculty and staff make international connections that will improve their scholastic standing and enhance their cognizance of the world. Roberts is especially devoted to sending American students overseas and welcoming international students to Kentucky.

Watch the video above to see the world through Sue Roberts’ eyes, mind and heart.
