Student Government Association Announces Spring Forum


LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 5, 2016) — The University of Kentucky Student Government Association welcomes all students to attend the 2016 Spring Forum from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, in Gatton College's auditorum, room B&E 111.

The annual forum aims to create an insightful dialogue between UK students and the administration. President Eli Capilouto, Provost Tim Tracy and Dean Victor Hazard will be in attendance to answer questions.

Noel Ekman, chairman of the Academic and Student Affairs Committee for SGA, hopes students will seize the opportunity to communicate directly with administration.

“Our university is going through tremendous change currently, and there are a multitude of questions that students have for our leadership,” said Ekman. “This forum will provide the opportunity for healthy conversation, which can certainly lead to administrative action.”

The forum will be run in a Q&A format with a moderator. Students are encouraged to submit their questions and ideas by April 11 on the Google Form provided by UKSGA. The link can be found here.

Students in attendance will have an opportunity to win and iPad and the student organization with the highest percentage of members in attendance will win $500 for their organization.

For any additional information or questions about the Spring Forum, please contact ASA Chair Noel Ekman via email at
