I am pleased to provide you with this fact booklet, which contains a brief summary
of the University of Kentucky’s 2000-2001 Operating and Capital Budget; a profile
of current facts about enrollment, retention, degrees conferred, tuition and fees,
faculty salaries, external support, the staffing complement, library collections, land
and space, equipment, and the status of new facilities. Also included is information
about our administrative organization and history and lists of our benchmark
institutions and members of the Board of Trustees.

The University of Kentucky entered the new millenium during one of the most
exciting and successful time periods in its history. During the past year we continued
our quest to become a top-20 public research institution. Bolstered by the successful
matching of $66.7 million in the Research Challenge Trust Fund-Phase II program,
which resulted in $133.4 million to support endowed chairs, professorships,
fellowships and research activities, the University began its pursuit of a second
$133.4 million through Phase III (RCTF-III) of the Research Challenge Trust Fund
program. As of November 2000, gifts and pledges to be matched by the RCTF-III
program totaled over $40 million, and the number of endowed chairs and
professorships had increased to 73 and 143, respectively. Through the generous
support of our friends and benefactors, we have been able to maximize the funding
made available through the RCTF program, and I want to take this opportunity to

thank them once again for supporting our vision for the future, our resolve to achieve
our mission and goals, and our commitment to a better quality of life for the citizens
of the Commonwealth.
Our vision, our resolve and our commitment helped us to forge a new challenge for
the University during the past year, as we kicked off the first-ever major fundraising campaign in UK’s history. In September 2000, we announced with
tremendous pride and anticipation the capital campaign, A Call to Greatness¸ with
a goal of raising $600 million over the next five years to support faculty and students,
academic excellence, UK Libraries, public service and new and renovated facilities.
At the time of the announcement – with over $300 million in gifts and pledges, we
were more than halfway there. Clearly, the faculty and staff, the alumni, and the
friends of the University are doing their part to help propel UK into the top echelon
of public research institutions. It is my earnest and sincere hope that the Governor
and General Assembly will take heed of these efforts, acknowledge the strength of
our resolve and commitment, and make the decision to provide the high, sustained
level of state support necessary to accelerate the progress of the University of
Kentucky in its quest for greatness.
The summary information provided in this fact booklet will assist you in gaining
knowledge and understanding of the progress being made by the University of
Kentucky. We are maintaining a stable, richly diverse enrollment at the University,
while increasing enrollment significantly and maintaining open access for the
Bluegrass Region at Lexington Community College (LCC). The number of African-

* American students at both the University and LCC reached all-time highs in fall
2000; retention rates have improved; and the number of doctoral and first
professional degrees conferred also reached all-time highs in 1999-2000. In addition
to enrolling, teaching and graduating students, the faculty and staff have set new
records every year for the last four years in the amount of external grants and
contracts awarded. Through the Research Equipment Replacement Pool program,
we were able to increase research equipment inventories at the University by nearly
18 percent, thus encouraging continued progress in this area so critical to the
economic growth and prosperity of the region and state.

the University and LCC fell in comparison to our benchmark institutions. The
2000-01 Operating Budget included a special state appropriation of $521,700 for
LCC which should improve their comparative position for faculty salaries. However,
we anticipate that University faculty salaries for 2000-01 will once again fall behind
in comparison to our benchmark institutions. Other extremely critical areas for
your consideration include the desperate need for space at Lexington Community
College; the rapidly increasing cost of providing health care benefits to the
University community; and the continuing surge of new technological developments
that fuel our instruction, research and administrative equipment needs.

New facilities now under construction – Aging/Allied Health, Agricultural Plant
Sciences, Mechanical Engineering and the Seaton Center Addition/Renovation
— will provide much needed space for our teaching, research and service programs.
Patient care facilities under construction will support our efforts to ensure high
quality health care for people throughout the Commonwealth. Of the several
projects in planning and design, we are anticipating with much enthusiasm the
development of the Biomedical Sciences Research Building. This facility is essential
to our quest, and I am convinced that the productivity of the University’s research
engine will be enhanced significantly with its completion.

The University of Kentucky is engaged with individuals, businesses and agencies,
in every county, and in every way possible in fulfilling its mission as Kentucky’s
premiere, land-grant research institution. We are dedicated to developing an
educated citizenry, a prosperous economy, and a safe and healthy environment for
generations to come. We invite you to join us in our dedication — to share our
vision, our resolve and our commitment to a better life for all Kentuckians — now
and in the future.

The progress of the University of Kentucky is the result of the support of the state
legislature, the generosity of University supporters in the private sector, and the
tireless efforts of our faculty and staff. We are grateful and appreciative of that
support. Yet, we have much more to accomplish. In the last year faculty salaries at
