The tenure of David P. Roselle was one
of the shortest in the presidential history of
the University of Kentucky. Roselle served as
UK’s ninth president from ]uly 1, 1987 to
December 28, 1989. He did much of note in
those 911 days.
Roselle came to the University of
Kentucky with an agenda to bring the
University’s academic program to competitive
levels with similar institutions nationally. A
part of that agenda was to increase the
University’s computing power, enhance its
reputation nationally in research and teaching
and promote higher achievement from faculty
and students by providing the environment for
their success.
