LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 28, 2022) – University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto is finishing his 11th year at the helm of the state’s flagship, land-grant institution of higher learning.
This academic year, the university finalized and has begun to implement its next Strategic Plan: The UK Purpose. One of the key principles of that plan is about how the institution works to “take care of its people.”
In this episode of Behind the Blue, Capilouto discusses in more detail how UK is working to act on that principle with a proposed budget that reflects University priorities, the hopefulness and enthusiasm that comes from spring graduates entering the Kentucky workforce, as well as how a second year has gone in grappling with a global pandemic.
