Supporting the University of Kentucky's faculty and staff strengthens the campus and community. By funding research, professorships and endowed chair positions, donors enable UK to attract top faculty and staff members to campus and to recognize them for their achievements. As a result, these talented academics excite students about learning, perform innovative research and connect the university to creative, research and service opportunities. These positions and awards also allow faculty and staff to pursue their interests, where they can make discoveries that improve the quality of life for everyone.
