Provost Tracy provides update on UK’s Strategic Plan on WUKY

See Blue - Tim TracyProvost Tim Tracy was recently interviewed by Tom Goddell on WUKY about the UK Strategic Plan. The goal of the University of Kentucky is to be “one of the handful of exceptional public residential research institutions in our country with an unwavering commitment to our Commonwealth.”

In the interview, Provost Tracy describes the current Strategic Planning process which relied on the work and feedback from faculty, staff and students (including the recent Town Halls). He addresses the University’s emphasis on undergraduate education.

Provost Tracy emphasizes that the most challenging part is the implementation of all the action steps and how to allocate the resources so we are successful. However, later in the interview, the Provost reiterates the importance of our recent improvements in retention and graduation rates. He states unequivocally that undergraduate education is a key emphasis for UK moving forward: “It’s the reason we are here.”

WUKYOur work — all of us working together to improve the lives of undergraduates here at the University of Kentucky — will serve as a driving factor for achieving the university’s mission. Dr. Ben Withers, Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education, states that he is confident that “we can continue to make a difference on campus.”
