LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 23, 2023) — University of Kentucky HR Work-Life is hosting a free parents resource fair for UK employees from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30, in Ballroom C of the Gatton Student Center. Stop by and stay as long as your schedule allows.  

“Parents and guardians are always looking for ways to educate, support and entertain their children,” said Azetta Beatty, HR Work-Life Benefits Manager. “Throughout a child’s life, they will need a variety of support and opportunities to grow and develop. We hope this in-person fair helps UK employees connect with a lot of helpful resources in one space.”  

At this fair, UK employees will have an opportunity to connect with child-friendly resources for school-age children regarding: 

  • academic/mental health support  
  • after school programs 
  • camps (fall, spring, summer, no school) 
  • extracurricular activities  
  • family support 

To register for the fair, visit the HR website

We will be using the BBN APP for check-in again this year. 

Also, employees are invited to check out details about each resource in the event website listing. Some of the resources are attending the in-person fair and others are only listed on the website. Please review the listing carefully before attending the in-person fair.

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.
