Mayor Jim Gray to Speak in "see tomorow." Series

Lexington Mayor Jim Gray will lead the next event in the "see tomorrow." Speaker Series at 4 p.m. Monday, March 24, in the William T. Young Library Auditorium.

Strengthening Ties Between UK & Lexington

The community of Lexington and the University of Kentucky are intimately connected, and these connections provide both points of contention and opportunities for mutual progress.  Our leaders—Mayor Jim Gray and President Eli Capilouto—clearly recognize the important relationship between Lexington and UK, and a number of student groups and community organizations work diligently to improve our community.  Still, more work needs to be done.
 
This event will…
 
1. Enhance our understanding of the needs of Lexington that faculty and students can address.
 
2. Improve our understanding of the framework currently in place for addressing community needs.
 
3. Celebrate the UK/Community collaboration that produced UK’s Peace Studies program.
 
Flier for event.
Date: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Location: 
Auditorium, Davis-Marksbury Building

A&S Wired: A Living Learning Program for Education in the Digital Age

A&S Wired is part of UK's Living Learning Program, a growing initiative that involves partnerships between the Office of Residence Life and various academic and non-academic units across campus.

Coffee Chat with Mayor Jim Gray

 

When you live in A&S Wired, you are connected to community.

And that certainly was the case when Lexington Mayor Jim Gray recently stopped by one of the monthly coffee chats to discuss the city that the students now call home, and their interaction within that community.

The mayor discussed the important relationship between UK and Lexington, especially with campus’ close proximity to downtown. He talked about the future of the Rupp Arena district, as well as how Lexington has been recognized as a top city for raising families.

The students were fully engaged as they inquired about the progress of the CentrePointe block in the middle of downtown, as well as other major plans the mayor wants to concentrate on for the future of Lexington.

Located in Keeneland Hall on UK’s north campus, A&S Wired allows first-year students to realize connectivity on all levels – from virtual to face-to-face, and from local to global. For more info visit wired.as.uky.edu
