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.

A Campus Walk With UK President Eli Capilouto

LEXINGTON, Ky. (September 1, 2017) – This fall, members of the Class of 2021 are experiencing a campus that has been transformed with student success at its core.

During the past six years, the University of Kentucky has invested more than $2.3 billion in facilities designed to support students. New residence halls, innovative classrooms and learning spaces, along with modern lab space create boundless opportunities for our newest Wildcats to learn, discover and grow.

With students already moving onto campus, we wanted to spend some time with University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto to get his thoughts on the upcoming academic year.

Since UK’s president loves to walk the campus, this episode of Behind the Blue is taken from our “Campus Walks” video series produced by UK Public Relations & Marketing. Dr. Capilouto joins UKPR’s Amy Jones-Timoney in a discussion on topics including campus renovation, the significance of Maxwell Place, and the mission and responsibility of the University to the Commonwealth.

The idea behind “Campus Walks” is to get out of the office and onto campus with members of the UK community, to have in-depth, authentic conversations about our university with the people working so hard to advance our mission of education, research and service. You can also watch the video of our walk. Click here for segment 1, here for segment 2, here for segment 3, and here for segment 4.
