LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 6, 2022) – The University of Kentucky International Center (UKIC) has launched the first Faculty Global Engagement and Expertise Survey. The survey aligns with UKIC’s recently released Global UK strategic plan in its focus on more effectively gathering, highlighting and sharing data related to a wide range of global research and engagement activities undertaken by faculty.
The survey is designed to capture broad areas of research and pedagogical activities, interests, experience and expertise among our faculty, focused on particular countries or regions, or on global/transnational themes.
“This will be vital in helping us identify clusters of international expertise and engagement,” said Associate Provost for Internationalization Sue Roberts. “It will also help us facilitate and develop multi and interdisciplinary communities of interest and allow for greater collaboration among members of our campus community.”
Responses to the survey will be collected through April 8.
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 $501 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.
