University Announcements


Senate Council Budget Forums

The University Senate Council announces two open forums to give faculty the opportunity to voice thoughts on how the first and anticipated second round of budget cuts have or will impact the University’s academic mission. These forums will take place as follows:

      Tuesday, Sept. 25, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in room 230 Student Center

      Friday, Sept. 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. in room 223 Multidisciplinary Science Building (the old College of Pharmacy building near the College of Nursing on Rose Street)

Please plan to attend at least one of these forums and be prepared to voice your views on topics such as current and anticipated impact of the budget cuts on the UK Core, undergraduate and graduate education, and the ability of faculty to fulfill research, teaching, clinical and/or service missions, etc.

We encourage attendees to consider the positive and negative impact of these budgetary decisions in light of the issues we face as a University (such as facilities in need of renovation or replacement, lagging or absent raises, reduction in state and federal revenue streams). The intent is to create an opportunity to freely express and exchange views.

These forums will be led by Senate Council members who will facilitate and listen. Forums are not topic specific but rather are scheduled to permit a wide range of faculty to attend.  Our faculty representatives of the Board of Trustees will also be present. We will have note-takers to record the views expressed and will summarize these views in a document addressed to President Capilouto and Interim Provost Tracy.

You may also submit your comments on the first and anticipated second round of budget cuts via this page.

Student Reading Workshop

Date: September 27, 2012
Time: 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Place: Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library
Topic: Do I Have To Do the Reading?

This one-hour workshop addresses a common two-part instructional challenge – getting students to do the assigned reading prior to class and helping them comprehend the discipline-specific content.  What percentage of your students complete the readings and what percentage of these students have a good understanding of what they read?  Research findings regarding college students' reading habits and abilities will be highlighted in this session and some instructional techniques used by UK faculty will be demonstrated.  At the end of the session you will have a list of ideas you can use to encourage your students to do the readings and understand what they've read.

Refreshments will be served.
