Town Hall Meeting to Discuss UK Internationalization Today

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 22, 2014) — The University of Kentucky International Center will host a town hall meeting today to get feedback on internationalization at UK and suggestions for improvements. The meeting will be held at 4 p.m. in the Young Library auditorium. 

"Our goal is to make this a truly internationalized campus," said Beth Barnes, interim associate provost for internationalization and director of the UK School of Journalism and Telecommunications. "For example, we have been fortunate to see tremendous growth in both Education Abroad enrollment and international student enrollment. We want to reflect on how we can continue to improve our internationalization efforts in these and other aspects of becoming a global campus."

To be as convenient as possible to all who are interested in joining, three different dates and locations have been scheduled throughout campus. The other two meetings are scheduled for:

  • 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, in the 127 Commons Room of the Wethington Building
  • 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24, in the Seay Auditorium of the Agricultural Science Building North

All members of the UK community interested in participating in the town hall meetings are invited to discuss the internationalization of UK's campus.  For more information, contact
