* January 2011
In compliance with KRS 164.250, I am pleased to provide you with the 2010-2011 Fact Booklet, a collection of current
facts and statistics about people and programs at the University of Kentucky. Many items in this booklet will be of interest to our stakeholders and the general public, including statistics on enrollments, retention, research expenditures,
and faculty salaries. A summary of the 2010-2011 Operating and Capital Budget also is presented.
We are gratified to have recruited one of our most talented classes of freshmen. More than 13,500 students applied
for admission to the fall 2010 semester, an 11 percent increase from the previous year and a new University record.
The 4,328 new students who arrived on campus in fall 2010 constitute the largest freshman class in UK history. The
average ACT Composite score was 25.2, an historical high for first-year students. These well-prepared students earned
the highest fall GPA (2.89) ever achieved by a freshman class at UK.
Over 28,000 students now attend the University, a record high enrollment. Other records associated with this year’s
student body include nearly 2,000 students enrolled in professional practice programs at the doctoral level and over
2,200 students enrolled in doctoral research programs. We are also proud to note that the most international students
on record enrolled in our undergraduate programs last fall. At the same time, we are striving to make our workplace
more diverse. Record numbers of African American faculty (92) and women in Executive/Administrative/Managerial
positions (237) worked at UK in fall 2010.

* UK’s mission calls upon us to improve people’s lives through the excellence of our teaching, research, and service.
The current economic crisis facing Kentucky and the nation offers formidable challenges to our institution. But
we remain focused on using our formidable intellectual resources to deliver a first class education to our students
and pursue solutions to Kentucky’s critical social, economic, and health-related problems.
Sincerely,

Lee T. Todd, Jr.
President

FTE calculations have been revised in accordance with CPE
guidelines. The new method uses a formula that weights the
number of student credit hours by students’ degree level.
*Note: Beginning in 2009-10, federal reporting guidelines for
enrollments eliminated the first-professional degree category
and established a new Doctor’s Degree - Professional Practice
category. These degree programs are now subsumed under the
graduate classification.
