UK Values 'connection’ with Eastern Kentucky, President Says

Lexington, KY. - The president of the University of Kentucky says the university’s eyes are firmly fixed on Eastern Kentucky and that some of the school’s best-prepared students come from the region.

In a recent interview with the Appalachian News-Express, UK President Dr. Eli Capilouto said students from Eastern Kentucky are among the best-prepared, hardest-working students who attend the university.

“I think there is, on our side, the commitment and devotion to students’ success,” he said. “There’s a recognition that students come with different levels of preparation and we’re introducing more and more ways to support students and be where they are and not just asking them to come be where we are.
