The committee asks that you please consider the following:

  1. All applications will be considered; however, the committee is especially interested in reviewing proposals that attract new revenue/additional students through distance learning, summer school or winter session.

Announcement from Provost Subbaswamy

Dear Colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Lynda Brown Wright, Professor of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology, who has filled in as Assistant Provost for Faculty Affairs this academic year while Dr. Heidi Anderson was doing double duty, has been named Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs at Georgia State University effective July 1.  She is a long-standing, well respected faculty member at UK, and has held multiple leadership roles.  Please join me in congratulating her on this  important appointment.

This creates a vacancy in the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs position.  With my own upcoming departure, and ongoing reorganization discussions, there won’t be any immediate plans to fill the vacancy.  Once an interim Provost is named, the status of this position will be revisited.

Voice Mail Upgrades

University of Kentucky Information Technology (UKIT) is upgrading both main campus and UK HealthCare employee voice mail during spring/summer 2012.

Over the past year, a select group tested Exchange voice mail, which alerts users of voice mail through Outlook email.  The voice mail message can be reviewed through an office telephone, computer, cell phone, or other mobile device.  In addition, the system provides speech-to-text in the voice mail notification email.  This allows users to read voice mail when listening is unavailable. 

The Exchange voice mail system also provides users the following features:      

    Remotely listening to email being read using text to speech;

    Calling into the system and asking for the system to read your calendar schedule; and

    Calling into the system and creating meetings and writing emails orally.      

UKIT will migrate users from the existing WindStream voice mail platform to Exchange voice mail without a charge. To schedule a voice mail upgrade, contact Denise McCarthy at 218-0484.
