Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

- 8 - U. Academic Affairs Committee Report Professor Betts, Chairman of the Academic Affairs Committee, reported that the Committee had met and heard reports from representatives from the College of Medicine, the College of Business and Economics, and the Office of international Affairs. He stated that he was delighted to report that the University has cause for celebration for having 1,086 students from other countries on campus. This number has doubled since 1981. He reported that an International Learning Center is being initiated in Jewell Hall and will open in the fall of 1991. A new course in cross-cultural affairs will be introduced and taught by Professor William Adams of the Anthropology Department for residents in that program. Professor Betts reported that 180 University of Kentucky students are now studying abroad at various institutions. Exchange programs are being initiated with a number of countries for both students and faculty. He cited several existing programs and said the most interesting aspect is the students from the Soviet Union will be coming to this country very soon. He felt it was worthwhile to mention that the programs need more money for scholarships. The scholarships are one way in which the University can become a global institution in the Twenty-first Century. He expressed hopes that the programs will continue to expand and invited the Trustees to consult with the various groups working hard on the international programs, particularly Professor Angene Wilson and Dean Richard Furst.
