Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 11, 2019)The University of Kentucky’s Department of Computer Science within the College of Engineering was formed in 1966, making it one of the oldest departments of its kind anywhere in the nation.

Now one of its younger faculty members, Corey Baker, is helping to lead the way for the department in bridging the diversity gap. Baker, who is in his second year as an assistant professor at UK, believes universities must do a better job recruiting, retaining, and graduating minority students in engineering. Thus far, his extensive efforts are proving to be very successful.

On this week’s episode of “Behind the Blue,” UKPR’s Carl Nathe talks with Baker about student recruitment and about his teaching, research, and service.
