LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 9, 2022) – Dr. Eric N. Monday is UK’s executive vice president for finance and administration. One of his responsibilities in that role is to oversee the development and implementation of the university’s annual budget.
In a few days, the UK Board of Trustees will consider a $5.6 billion budget for 2022-2023. It is the largest budget in the history of the university – fueled by continued growth in the university’s health care enterprise and research missions as well as what is expected to be the largest first-year class ever at UK.
On this episode of Behind the Blue, Monday explains how the budget is shaped, some of the areas of emphasis for the budget and how it is helping move the institution’s mission forward – to advance Kentucky.
