areas: engagement, research, and education. He reiterated that it is not the tyranny of "or.” It should be the tradition to embrace the genius of "and.” M. Michael Kagpf" s Remarks Dr. Karpf spoke on the analogies of undergraduate education and the Medical Center and talked about financial planning. He referred to the hospital and said it went through a process to make sure all areas work together. In a study done by Kaufman Hall, an independent consulting finn that offers integrated, strategic, capital, and financial advisory services for health care, it was noted that in tenns of resources it would take talented people to become a major medical center to serve Kentucky well. In order to transform the University to where it needs to be, it will take a lot of money and resources. Dr. Karpf noted that the hospital project brought workers from all over Kentucky to the University. He said that it is important to understand, focus, plan, and put it together. This is one thing that has worked very well. Undergraduate education is going through the same process that the hospital previously went through. The University of Kentucky has a special mission in the state, and getting the University to the next level will have a major impact on the economy of the state. N.
