Dr. Karpf will make a brief opening statement and then open the floor to questions or comments from faculty, staff and students. This is an opportunity for members of UK’s community to talk with Dr. Karpf about a variety of issues in an informal setting.

“We hope that these chats with administrators can bring the University of Kentucky community together and aid in strengthening our common goals with respect to our educational mission,” said Hollie Swanson, Senate Council chair and professor in the Department of Molecular and Biomedical Pharmacology.

“The staff and university senates are working more closely this year by offering these informal chats with our administrators.
