* January 2015
We are proud to publish the 2014-15 Fact Booklet—a collection of current statistics about people and programs at
the University of Kentucky. In accordance with KRS 164.250, this booklet provides important data to our stakeholders
and the general public, including information on enrollment management; retention and graduation rates; research
contracts, grants and expenditures; faculty salaries; and a summary of the 2014-2015 Operating and Capital Budget.
Last fall, UK’s total enrollment achieved a new milestone. More than 30,000 students now pursue an advanced education at our University. More than one-fourth (27.5%) of our undergraduates now come from outside of Kentucky.
For the third year in a row, UK welcomed the largest and most diverse first-year class to our campus. Nearly 5,200
students began their college studies in fall 2014, including 131 international students.
From new residence halls that are transforming the student living experience to classrooms and research space that
advances learning and discovery, the University of Kentucky is becoming a national model for a thriving, public residential research campus.
Construction is underway the new Academic Science Building, a $122 million facility which will revamp science education at UK. The building will be home to innovative lecture halls and groundbreaking TEAL (Technology Enabled Active
Learning) classrooms. The University also continues work on a new home for the UK School of Art and Visual Studies.
When completed, the building will provide innovative studio space for the art studio, art education and art history
and visual studies programs. Students across all majors will take courses in this facility as they complete their UK Core
requirements.

* The University’s commitment to providing healthy, affordable dining options continues to make progress. The 90,
a new $32 million academic support and dining facility on south campus is funded through a public private partnership with Aramark. It will be home to innovative, classrooms for Living and Learning Programs, offices for the
LLP’s, and many other student support spaces. It will also be home to the UK Food Connection, the new institute
funded with a $5 million investment from Aramark to promote the study of Kentucky food in partnership with the
College of Food, Agriculture and Environment.
These priorities embolden our mission as a renowned flagship and land grant research university. They bolster
our commitment to Kentucky – a covenant that has never been more vital. As we continue our work together we
are building a stronger University of Kentucky—or better yet, a stronger University for Kentucky—and through it,
a better future for our state.

Sincerely,

Eli Capilouto
President
