The University of Kentucky is extremely proud of its long-standing relationship with the men and women in uniform who bravely serve this country. Since its founding as a Land Grant University in 1865, UK has consistently contributed to the defense of freedom. It has also consistently honored its veterans through such notable campus landmarks as the iconic Memorial Hall and Memorial Coliseum.
The Veterans Resource Center was established to continue that tradition of support by providing UK’s military and veteran populations with the service and assistance they deserve. Our goal is to ensure that your transition to college is as smooth as possible. Whether you are entering college for the first time, transferring from another school or returning after a deployment, the Wildcat community welcomes you home.
All men and women in uniform can take advantage of the opportunities and cost savings of the Paducah campus. If you would like more information about any aspect of the College of Engineering or your Veteran benefits don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Jennifer McIntosh.
