Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

- 2 - Bratt has served the University and its faculty and students in many arenas during her 18 years on this campus and read the following resolution on her behalf: Carolyn joined the University of Kentucky College of Law faculty in 1975. From 1984 to 1989, she was the Alumni Professor of Law and in 1989 was appointed as the W. L. Matthews Professor of Law. She has been recognized since early in her career as a skilled and dedicated teacher. She received the College of Law Outstanding Teacher awards in 1977 and 1979, the UK Alumni Association Great Teacher Award in 1985, the Faculty Advisor Excellence Award of the UK Student Organizations Assembly in 1989, and the Duncan Award for Excellence in Teaching from the UK College of Law in 1990. She is recognized by her peers locally and nationally as a leader in her profession serving as Special Justice to the Kentucky Supreme Court and receiving the Cassis Award for Excellence in Legal Research and Scholarship from the UK College of Law in 1989. She has also received numerous awards for her public service from local, state, and national groups to which she has willingly given her time, energy and incisive intellect. Some of Carolyn's greatest contributions, however, have been to her faculty colleagues at the University of Kentucky. She has served us faithfully, with forthrightness, integrity, and with deep caring and concern for our University in the highest areas of elective and appointed responsibility for a faculty member. She has served as the Chair of the University Senate Ad Hoc Committee on the Status of Women and co-authored its landmark report.. She was a faculty representative to the 1990 Presidential Search Committee, and has served as an elected member of the University Faculty Senate, the Senate Council and, from 1990-91, as Chair of the University Senate Council. In 1990 she was elected faculty representative to the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees. With this meeting, she concludes her term as a Board member. During the past year Carolyn has been the recipient of an American Council of Education (ACE) Fellowship, designed to introduce faculty to academic administration. I am certain that as Carolyn makes the transition into academic administration she will take with her an understanding and appreciation for the concerns and hopes of faculty and students whom she has served so tirelessly and sometimes at great personal cost. The faculty of the University of Kentucky are grateful to this outstanding woman for her service to us, and for myself and on their behalf, I would like to thank her for her work. I hope that my fellow members of this Board will join me in recognizing her service. Governor Breathitt thanked Dr. Powell and asked for a motion to adopt the Resolution. Mr. Sturgill moved approval. Mrs. Plattner seconded the motion and it was unanimously adopted. Governor Breathitt asked Dr. Powell to deliver a copy of the Resolution to Professor Bratt, the retiring Dean and the new Dean of the College of Law.
