A Message from the President
There is no question that this is one ofthe most exciting times ever for
students at the University of Kentucky. Our commitment to excellence in {__
the classroom is receiving a great deal of support both within and outside   _`   _ _
the university.     A _
The opening of the $58 million \X’i1liam T. Young Library is the  
cornerstone in moving the University of Kentucky toward becoming one     »``  I
ofthe top 20 public institutions of higher learning in the country. The best 9 4_
testimonial for the new facility is the positive reaction from students, the   V ji   J;
people — first and foremost — we are here to serve. :     2  
Another major accomplishment is the action ofthe Kentucky General ` _' I
Assembly which this year authorized a $100 million Research Challenge "   A''.
Trust Fund. UK will be eligible for two-thirds of these dollars by raising
matching fiinds. Thanks to these efforts. we will be able to dramatically
increase the quality of teaching and research at UK.
Our nationally-recognized football and men’s basketball programs, and
numerous cultural events and 250 organizations oiler something for every
student in helping to enhance their education beyond the classroom.
In the coming year. students, faculty. staff and visitors will see a flurry _
ofnew construction on campus. Scheduled to be built are the Mechanical
Engineering Building. Phase Two of the Aging/Allied Health Building,
the Agricultural Plant Sciences Facility, the Women’s Cancer Center, the
Gill Heart lnstitute and a new Career Center. Football fans will enjoy an
expanded Commonwealth Stadium. which has undergone major new
construction to accommodate 10.000 more fans, bringing the total seating
capacity to approximately GZOOO.
At the University of Kentucky. we can`t be content to maintain the ` i
status quo; we must excel. \`\"e are committed to doing everything we can
to assure that the education received by current and future students is
absolutely the Hnest it can be.
Sincerely.
