Transforming our campus.
$615,000,000—that’s a big number, and it signifies some
big changes. Campus might look a little different next time
you pass through, as it’s all being invested into state-of-theart living, learning and research spaces to propel the work of
our students, faculty and staff. Most of these expenditures are
through private donations, or one-of-a-kind, widely acclaimed
public-private partnerships.
4,000 new residence hall beds throughout campus, the next
phase of the largest residence hall revitalization campaign in all
of public higher education.
Renovation and expansion of the Gatton College of
Business & Economics into one of the country’s premier
Business schools, including technology-infused classrooms, a
simulated trading floor and new conference center.
A Science Academic Building in the heart of campus that
will house some of UK’s premier researchers and allow students
to work closely with world-renowned faculty.
A renovated Commonwealth Football Stadium, meaning
significant upgrades to concessions and other amenities
including luxury suites and club seating.
It’s all part of a greater vision for unprecedented progress and
expansion, a flourishing modern campus ready to welcome the
next generation of scholars.

* Pride In Blue

Makin’ 125 look good!
It’s with great pride that
we bring you the 2014
spring issue of Kentucky
Alumni magazine.
e year 2014 is big
for the University of
Kentucky Alumni Association. It’s the 125th anniversary of the
founding of this great organization. 125 years.
ink about that. e official date of the anniversary is June
4, but we wanted to go ahead and get the celebration started
with a pictorial recap of the association’s history and key moments. Staff member Linda Perry takes us on a journey that
began 125 years ago.
From the beginning with Alfred M. Peter serving as the first
president of the Association of State College Alumni to the
vibrant organization we are today, the UK Alumni Association has always been and remains committed to serving the
university and alumni. I guess the old adage is true, “e
more things change the more they stay the same.” It’s amazing
to think about the many wonderful people who have given
their time and support to the association through the years.
At the heart of it all, it’s about people sharing a common
bond — love for our alma mater.
On a personal note, 2014 is also an anniversary year for me,
too. In December of this year I will celebrate 10 years at the
University of Kentucky, all proudly spent with the alumni association. It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years. I think I fell in
love with this place when I walked into the King Alumni
House for an interview. I’ve been in love ever since. I’ve said
it before, but it bears repeating. Our professional lives can
have such a strong bearing on our personal lives. It makes all
the difference in the world when you love what you do. As
with all things in life, some days are better than others, but I
am very fortunate that the good days far outnumber the notso-good ones.


Spring 2014

Now, more about this issue. Imagine you are charged with rebuilding a once thriving city. A city that is now in a state of near
despair. at’s the challenge Dan Kinkead is facing as he works
to rebuild the city of Detroit. You will want to read Dan’s story.
We also introduce you to John Tomasicchio. He is an
archivist at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Think
of all the things — costumes, playbills, scripts, props —
that it takes to stage more than 200 performances each
year. That’s a lot of stuff. Someone has to keep track and
preserve all of it. Doesn’t that sound like so much fun? It’s
fascinating to me.
Be sure to check out the two-page photo featuring UK’s
championship cheerleaders. UK won its 20th Universal
Cheerleaders Association title in January, that’s 15 since
1995. at, my friends, is the definition of “dynasty.” I’m always more than a little awestruck by the squad’s performances. ey are all so talented, not to mention all the hours of
practice it takes to reach this level of amazing. Big congratulations to head coach Jomo ompson and his team. No pressure, Jomo, but now we want No. 21!
Finally, whether you were pulling for the Denver Broncos
or the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII, you had to be
proud of the three former Wildcats — Jacob Tamme, Danny
Trevathan and Wesley Woodyard — of the Broncos. It sure
made watching the big game more interesting, particularly if
your favorite NFL team wasn’t playing. My team (which shall
remain nameless due to a recent history of choking in the
playoffs), was not.
I hope you enjoy this issue of Kentucky Alumni magazine
as much as we enjoy sharing it with you. As always, I welcome
your thoughts and comments.
With Pride in Blue,

Kelli Elam ’11

* Presidential Conversation
‘See Momentum’
When advocating for the establishment of the Agricultural
and Mechanical College of Kentucky University, founding
Regent John Bowman said, “We want a university (to give)
education of the highest order to all classes. Indeed, we want
everything which will make this institution eventually equal
to any on this continent. Why should we not have them? I
think we can.”
Nearly 150 years later, the University of Kentucky has
made incredible progress toward that vision. Because of you,
and guided by our values, we have provided a better future
for our students through education and experience; created
new knowledge and scholarship in our laboratories, performance halls and in the field; treated and healed patients from
all corners of the Commonwealth; and served communities
from Pikeville to Paducah.
We have done so with an abiding commitment and impressive momentum. The last year brought achievement across
all areas of our institution. To continue our progress, we are
making the necessary investments in our people and our
As you know, we broke ground on the new Gatton College
of Business & Economics last October, and utility work
began on the new Academic Science Building.
Collectively, the university will be spending more than $20
million on new and existing facilities for the College of Fine
Arts. This investment includes renovations to the Fine Arts
Building, the Schmidt Vocal Arts Center and a new home
for the School of Art and Visual Studies to replace the
Reynolds Building.
In December, we revealed the design for the $110 million
renovation of Commonwealth Stadium. The investment,
which will unfold over the next two years, is focused on the
needs of our student-athletes and amenities for our fans.
In January, the UK Board of Trustees authorized Phase IIC of the ongoing public-private partnership with EdR to
construct more than 1,140 additional modern residence hall
beds in two new facilities on north campus. This phase
brings the total completed/ongoing construction to more
than $348 million, 5,733 beds, 202 active learning spaces
and 12 buildings across campus to be completed by 2016.
These capital investments are critical to our future — they
support our students, faculty, staff and the mission of Kentucky’s flagship. But, buildings alone will not help us reach
John Bowman’s dream for a public, research and land-grant
university in Kentucky.
Over the next six months, Provost Christine Riordan will
lead a campuswide team in drafting the “see tomorrow.”
2014-2020 Strategic Plan to guide our work. The plan is

built on the ethos that
has guided us for nearly
150 years and will direct
our response to the
changing environment in
which we operate. It is
built on six guiding principles approved by our
board last fall:
• Creating a vibrant
undergraduate learning
• Advancing a high quality graduate and professional
education portfolio
• Cultivating a robust research environment
• Developing a strong and sustainable UK infrastructure
• Creating a positive work environment for faculty and staff
• Having a meaningful impact on the Commonwealth and
I am confident that our priorities and the work of the faculty, staff and students serving on several committees across
this endeavor will bring forth a compelling document that
directs our work to becoming “an institution equal to any on
this continent.”
Thank you for all you continue to do for the University of
Kentucky. You represent the colorful fabric of your alma
mater’s enduring legacy. Mary Lynne and I look forward to
seeing you in your communities and on our campus throughout the year.

UK takes steps to self-finance
major construction projects
The University of Kentucky Board of
Trustees approved a resolution authorizing issuance of $265 million in bonds to
help finance expansion of the Gatton
College of Business and Economics
building; construction of the Academic
Science Building; and renovation and
expansion of Commonwealth Stadium.
With the passage of House Bill 7, the
2013 General Assembly approved UK’s
proposal to self-finance these three major
projects that contribute to the overall revitalization of campus infrastructure.

WUKY adopts new Public
Media Code of Integrity
WUKY, the University of Kentucky’s
National Public Radio station, is one of
nearly 200 local and national organizations to have adopted the new Public
Media Code of Integrity. “The Public
Media Code of Integrity is both an inspiration to us all and a challenge as we
strive to meet the high standards it establishes. It says who we are and what
we are in no uncertain terms,” WUKY
General Manager Tom Godell says. “In
the era of the 24-hour news cycle, when
other news organizations are concerned
primarily with getting the story first,
public broadcasting and WUKY remain committed to getting it right.”
The code was created by Affinity
Group Coalition and the Station Resource Group, collectively representing
public television, radio stations and
service organizations from across the
country, with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It promotes commitment to a number of
standards including accuracy, integrity,
fairness, respect, diversity and impartiality.
The Code of Integrity can be read at
WUKY’s website at www.wuky.org

College of Public Health has reason to celebrate
e University of Kentucky College of
Public Health (CPH) is celebrating 10
years of education, research and service
in 2014.
In 2004 the Board of Trustees approved creation of the College of Public
Health, the first new college at UK in
more than 30 years, making UK one of
only seven universities in the United
States that includes all six health care
colleges on one campus.
Public health at UK is almost 100 years
old. e Department of Hygiene and
Public Health was established in the College of Arts and Sciences, along with a
University Dispensary, in 1917. Since
2004, the college has awarded more than
350 MPH degrees, 87 MHA degrees, 12
academic doctorates and 72 professional
doctoral (DrPH) degrees, and has become
a Top 25 School of Public Health, as
ranked by U.S. News and World Report.
e mission of the college is to apply
comprehensive health approaches to understand better and to help reduce the
burdens and disparities of health prob-

lems on individuals, families and communities. e college trains students for
leadership in the 21st century public
health workforce through research, service and practice to improve the public’s
health and reduce health disparities.
“We take seriously our responsibility to
prepare the next cadre of public health
workers; we know we are preparing future public health leaders. People are important here, and we are genuinely
committed to making our work and
learning environment positive, fair and
diverse,” says Stephen Wyatt, dean of the
CPH received more than $48 million
in grant funding for research during fiscal year 2013. is total includes more
than $11 million in primary awards for
which CPH faculty members serve as
the principal investigators and more
than $37 million in collaborative awards
for which CPH faculty members participate in multidisciplinary research teams.

The Innovation Network for Entrepreneurial Thinking, better known as
iNET, is UK’s new academic program
for students from any major to have opportunities to learn skills to apply entrepreneurial thinking, build
professional networks and gain real
world experience.
Twenty freshmen from 16 majors and
six colleges including one international
student, and an upperclassman peer
mentor are in the iNET Living Learning Community, which is currently located in Patterson Hall and moving to
Champions Court I next year. It is also
the newest of the UK Office of Residence Life Living Learning Programs
for fall 2013.
Students in the iNET Living Learning Community will discover that
thinking like an entrepreneur will not
only help them in the future, but also

help them day-to-day to be better students and get the most out of their UK
academic experience.
Celebrating its 25th year on campus
in fall 2014, the Living Learning Program at UK provides students with an
environment to learn where they live
and to live where they learn. The Division of Student Affairs Office of Residence Life, creator of the program,
collaborated with academic and other
student success partners to complement the classroom experience. This
dynamic residential experience offers
specialized programming, interactions
with UK faculty and staff, and a supportive community that focuses on student success. The program has grown
exponentially in recent years with 965
students participating in 13 programs
this fall. n

run on ‘The Sing-Off’
e all male a cappella group, the
acoUstiKats, represented UK well on
NBC’s “e Sing-Off,” a TV competition featuring the nation’s top 10 a cappella groups.
