Work-life Workshop Planned for UK Faculty March 10

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 9, 2021) — The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged University of Kentucky faculty members in numerous ways, including blurring of the lines between professional and personal life.

To provide support for faculty, the UK Office for Faculty Advancement is hosting a Faculty Work-Life Integration Workshop from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, via Zoom webinar.

This event will feature Jay Miller, dean of the UK College of Social Work; Laura Bryan, interim dean of the Lewis Honors College at UK; and Jeff Buller from Florida Atlantic University where he is director of Leadership and Professional Development after serving 10 years as dean of FAU's Harriet Wilkes Honors College. 

All levels of professors, instructors and teaching assistants are invited to attend the workshop.  Visit to register, and the Zoom link will be sent to all registrants Wednesday morning.


As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
