Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Implementation Plan
Meaningful and Sustainable Change
The university's diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) implementation plan is a collaborative, systemic response to a systemic challenge. Over the years, faculty members, staff, students and community champions have dedicated their time to advancing diversity and equity at UK. This implementation plan is designed to empower those agents of change, embolden existing DEI efforts and introduce additional initiatives to engage more of our community in this work.
We understand that working in allyship and dismantling institutionalized oppression in higher education is not a project to complete. Instead, it is a continuous, multigenerational endeavor that requires all of us.
Aligning the DEI Implementation Plan with UK's Strategic Plan
DEI and UK-PURPOSE
As Kentucky's flagship institution, the university plays a critical leadership role by promoting diversity, inclusion, economic development and human well-being. We have aligned the DEI Implementation Plan with the UK-PURPOSE Strategic Plan to accelerate inclusive excellence in all we do as we work to advance Kentucky.
