Faculty and Staff Diversity and Inclusivity Resources

International Center

The UK International Center (UKIC) leads internationalization efforts at the University of Kentucky. The work of the UKIC is supported by International Advisory Council, a group of globally engaged faculty and administrators representing each of the University’s 16 colleges, plus other key academic units.

Martin Luther King Center

The Martin Luther King Center seeks to empower University of Kentucky students from ALL communities to improve their college experience by increasing access to academic, civic leadership, and cultural exchange opportunities. We seek to provide a culture of civic dialogue and a campus-wide "brave space" for students to develop their cultural identity without fear of harassment and with the support of others striving to do the same.

Office of Inclusive Excellence and Diversity Education

The Office of Inclusive Excellence and Diversity Education (IEDE) serves the University as a centralized educational unit for expanding diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. Our work is rooted in an organized effort to create a campus community invested in exposing, challenging, and minimizing the effects of interpersonal and institutionalized discrimination.

Office of LGBTQ*

LGBTQ* Resources is University of Kentucky's central hub for accessing information, groups, and services related to diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. We are a campus-wide office working to ensure that our community is a welcoming, safe, and supportive place for all students, faculty, staff and alumni. We also seek to connect and collaborate with community groups and friends across Lexington and around Kentucky.

Disability Resource Center

The DRC provides services to the University community so students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of University life. The DRC serves students with a wide array of disabilities and this web site provides valuable information for students, parents, faculty and staff related to various responsibilities, services and programs of the office.

UK Community of Concern

The Community of Concern team seeks to proactively enhance the well-being and safety of the University's students and employees by:

  • Providing a centralized point of contact for persons who develop a concern about the welfare of an individual.
  • Taking appropriate action, by referring individuals to the resources that can provide the support/assistance needed to safely maintain successful relationship to the University.
  • Providing training and education to the University community.

UK Office for Institutional Diversity

We are committed to providing an enriching UK experience for all students, faculty, and staff by actively exploring and adopting new initiatives that expand both the diversity and inclusivity of our campus community.

Veterans Resource Center

The Veterans Resource Center provides UK's military and veteran populations with the service and assistance they deserve, making the transition to college is as smooth as possible. The Center assists veterans who are entering college for the first time, transferring from another school, or returning after a deployment.

Work-Life Office

Established to demonstrate and reinforce a long-term commitment to a positive work-life climate at the University of Kentucky. Resources include resources for working parents, elder care, flexible work and counseling.
