Dear UK Community,
As we recently announced, our institution reached historic levels of enrollment and retention this fall—an indication of our growing academic reputation as a place where students succeed. For the first time, more than 31,000 students enrolled at UK. Additionally, the percentage of first-year students who returned for their second year reached an all-time high.
Students and families — even in a time of so much anxiety and uncertainty — are choosing the University of Kentucky because we place students and their success at the center of everything that we do.
A college education will be even more important in the future, as our economy changes, requiring more skills and more nimbleness. That’s what an education at UK provides — the critical thinking capacity and toolkit of skills needed to succeed in a world where change is the only real constant.
I want to thank you for creating this environment of success—anchored by a culture of care. Because of you, we are the University of, for and with Kentucky.
Eli Capilouto President
