In collaboration with the Campus Retention Advisory Committee, a group of faculty and professional staff developed a list of core academic expectations to be shared with all F15 cohort students:
Academic integrity, honesty, fairness and responsibility in our scholarship and personal lives form the bedrock on which our UK experience is built. You will significantly enhance your success at UK as a student/scholar by meeting the following academic expectations and accompanying behaviors.
- Attend and prepare for all classes.
- Reflect on and apply what you learn.
- Create and respect relationships.
- Expand your education beyond the classroom.
- Believe in your ability to succeed.
These Academic Expectations will be included in The Blueprint (the First-Year Experience program), K Book, see blue. U booklet, K Week Schedule, UK Parent and Family Association handbook, Student Success website, and in UK 101 sections.
We also hope that academic resource and tutoring centers, residence halls, advising offices, classrooms, etc. will display the Academic Expectations posters. If you would like an academic expectation poster, please contact Larissa McLaughlin, project manager in the UGE Student Success office.
