* December 2007
In compliance with KRS 164.250, I am pleased to provide you with the 2007-2008 Fact Booklet, a collection of
current facts and statistics about the people and programs at the University of Kentucky. Our stakeholders and
the general public will find many items of interest in this booklet, including statistics on enrollments, retention,
research expenditures, and faculty salaries. A summary of the 2007-2008 Operating and Capital Budget is also
presented.
We are proud of the fact that the University of Kentucky awarded a record number of degrees last year.
Over 5,600 students earned degrees in 2006-07, a 2.4 percent increase over the previous year. UK also has engaged
in efforts to encourage students who left the University without earning a degree to resume their studies. We have
become a full partner in Project Graduate, a statewide program designed to make completing a degree as convenient as possible for former students.
We are pleased that the preliminary six-year graduation rate has increased over last year and appears to be tied for
the highest rate on record. In addition, the graduation rate for African American students jumped five percentagepoints, a noteworthy gain in one year. And the retention rate of first-year African American students surpassed the
University’s overall retention rate for the second time in five years. We are hopeful that our new “early warning
system” will boost overall retention rates by providing academically at-risk students with the advising and support
they need to succeed.

* UK’s Top 20 Business Plan calls for hiring additional faculty members to improve instruction for a growing student
body and enhance our research and engagement efforts. The Plan places great importance on competitive salaries,
benefits and professional support to attract and retain outstanding faculty. Since fall 2004, faculty salaries have
increased from 86.9 percent to 89.2 percent of our benchmark institutions’ median salary. Clearly, much still needs
to be done to recruit, develop and retain a distinguished faculty.
Several new facilities are expected to come on-line in the near future to create the space needed for our teaching,
research and service programs. These buildings include a biological pharmaceutical complex building, a new
patient care facility, and a student health facility. We also are renovating a number of older facilities, including: the
Chemistry-Physics Building, the Thomas Hunt Morgan Biological Science Building, the M.I. King Library, and the
Boone Faculty Center.
Establishing a national reputation is not an end in itself. Our mission calls upon us to improve people’s lives
through the excellence of our teaching, research, and service. Our prominence as a Top 20 university will be
judged, in the end, by our effectiveness in solving Kentucky’s most urgent social, economic, and health-related
problems.
Sincerely,

Lee T. Todd, Jr.
President
