Diversity & Inclusivity


Committed to diversity and inclusion, the University of Kentucky embraces students of all backgrounds and cultures. It provides a safe, nurturing environment to learn, research and grow. In 2017, the university released a Diversity Plan focused on increasing the diversity on campus, recruiting more diverse students, faculty and staff and improving its retention and graduate rates for diverse students. The university has launched numerous initiatives on campus and within the colleges to enhance the open, welcoming environment and to educate and unify its students, faculty and staff.
