'Behind the Blue': Martin School on New Undergrad Program, Wendell Ford Lecture

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 26, 2019) — For the first time since it was founded more than 40 years ago as a graduate program offering master’s and doctoral degrees, the University of Kentucky’s Martin School of Public Policy and Administration is launching an exciting undergraduate program in the next academic year, 2020-21.

Several of the Martin School’s programs are nationally ranked and the addition of this new initiative has energized its faculty and is already garnering plenty of interest from prospective students.

On this week’s edition of “Behind the Blue,” UK Public Relations and Strategic Communication’s Carl Nathe interviews Wendell Ford Professor of Public Policy Genia Toma about this undergraduate offering, as well as details on the 2019 Wendell Ford Lecture coming up Oct. 8.
