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 21, 2022) – The Office of LGBTQ* Resources is the University of Kentucky's central hub for accessing information, groups and services related to diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. Located in the Dinkle Mas Suite in the Gatton Student Center, the resource center is a campus-wide office that works to make sure that our community is a welcoming, safe and supportive place for all students, faculty, staff and alumni.

On May 9th, 2022, J’Lissabeth Faughn (she, her, hers) assumed the role of director of UK’s Office of LGBTQ* Resources, a part of the Office for Student Success. An experienced leader with a passion for social justice and student development, Faughn brings a rich history of advocacy and community building from similar roles in California, Iowa and Missouri. She holds a graduate degree in higher education and social justice from Iowa State University and an undergraduate degree from Murray State University.

On this episode of ‘Behind the Blue’, Faughn talks about how her journey of providing support to students led her to the University of Kentucky, her plans to continue the Resource Center’s legacy of creating a safe, open environment for all, and more.
