LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 17, 2021) – Members of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees today are considering a proposed $5.1 billion UK budget for 2021-2022. The budget describes how the university funds the salaries of some 20,000 employees, sets tuition for 30,000 students and details the operations of a hospital system that now comprises roughly half of UK’s budget.
But at its core, according to UK’s Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration, Eric Monday, a budget is about values and priorities. Monday believes a budget provides a roadmap to better understand what the institution really values.
In this episode of Behind the Blue, Monday discusses those values and priorities in detail as he breaks down a record budget for the University of Kentucky.
