Create a DEI Campus Plan
The DEI Campus Plan will identify existing areas of concern on campus relative to institutional history and campus history, art and sculpture, civic landscapes, accessibility and other barriers to inclusion within buildings and across the campus. The planning effort will apply to the main campus, health care campus and athletics facilities.
Create an Art Fund for Capital Projects
Art and artistic expression are essential to communities. At UK, we are home to a vibrant and diverse campus community, and we want our public art to reflect those values. This team will make recommendations regarding a public art committee and establish a fund to purchase or commission diverse and inclusive public art for campus through a 1% allocation from capital projects of $1 million or more (up to a maximum of $1,000,000 per project).
Expand Supplier Diversity Purchasing Program
This initiative focuses on ways to enhance the supplier diversity purchasing program to increase the university’s support of diverse businesses in Lexington.
