LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 26, 2014) — A message from University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto:

Dear Students and colleagues,

We are thrilled to start a new academic year this week. We anticipate a year of tremendous change and progress for the University of Kentucky. We can look forward to $1 billion in new construction that we are self-financing, focused on student success and discovery; continued growth in our student body that underscores that we are increasingly the first choice in the region; and spotlighting the ongoing work of our faculty and staff, whose endeavors represent deep investments in our state’s future.

I hope you enjoy this welcome back message, which places a spotlight on what we are doing together through stories about just a few of the remarkable members of the UK community.

Welcome back to this special community.
