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. (Nov. 26, 2019) – This week in the United States we celebrate the national holiday of Thanksgiving, so we thought it would be a good time to take stock of the things we may have in our lives to be thankful for.

To that end, we spent an afternoon in the Gatton Student Center on campus talking with students and staff about that, and also learning about some of their favorite Thanksgiving foods and traditions.

Enjoy this short episode, and we hope that you might also have an opportunity to reflect on things you’re thankful for, as well as traditions that are unique and special for you and yours.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 12, 2019) – The new dean of the University of Kentucky College of Communication & Information came to UK a few months ago from another Southeastern Conference school, the University of Alabama. Her name is Jennifer Greer and she is feeling right at home as a member of the Wildcat family.

Greer is impressed by the strong and committed faculty, and by the talented students she is meeting across the campus.

On this week’s edition of “Behind the Blue,” UKPR’s Carl Nathe talks with Greer about  what brought her to Kentucky, her impressions of Lexington and the Bluegrass State,  and what she sees ahead for her college.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 5, 2019) – The University of Kentucky is recognizing multiple anniversaries this academic year, including 70 years of integration on campus, 50 years of black studies at UK and 10 years of the UK Office for Institutional Diversity. UK's diversity efforts have also been recognized nationally in recent years by publications like Forbes and INSIGHT Into Diversity, who has named UK a Diversity Champion three years running.

But the work is far from over, and UK Vice President for Institutional Diversity Sonja Feist-Price says UK continues to strive for inclusive excellence.

"Every individual on our campus adds value. Everyone’s voice on our campus must matter," Feist-Price said in a recent blog post. "I am grateful to work on a campus that deeply values and recognizes the significance of diversifying our student body, celebrating our unique backgrounds, and accepting and supporting all individuals as they embrace their authentic selves."

On this week’s episode of "Behind the Blue," UK Public Relations and Strategic Communications sits down with both Feist-Price and Lance Poston, executive director of UK Inclusive Health and Campus Partnerships, to discuss ongoing efforts to make the university a place where everyone feels a sense of belonging.
