Student Services and Activities



Dean of Students Office

The University of Kentucky Dean of Students Office provides both administrative and educational services that support the personal and academic success of students. The office provides extracurricular, non-academic educational programs and also collaborates with academic units to provide support for students in reaching their educational goals.

Office of Student Conduct

The Office of Student Conduct is committed to promoting a safe, healthy, student-centered, and inclusive community where students can learn, grow, and develop as they pursue their academic endeavors at the University of Kentucky. The goals of the student conduct system are to:

  • Promote personal responsibility and peer accountability.
  • Encourage students to consider the impact of their actions on themselves, their peers, and the greater community.
  • Empower students to address any conflict that may arise in a safe, respectful, and socially conscious manner.
  • Collaborate with faculty, staff, students, and the campus community with regard to student conduct matters.
  • Educate the campus community about student rights and responsibilities related to the University Code of Student Conduct.

The Code of Student Conduct (“the Code”) at the University of Kentucky is established to promote and protect the core mission and values of the University. By maintaining the Code, the University affirms the rights, protections, and expectations of students regarding their behavior as members of the University community. Students enrolled at the University of Kentucky are expected to conduct themselves according to federal, state, and local laws, and promote an educational environment that supports the University’s mission and values. When incidents of potential misconduct occur, students are afforded a fair, educational, and consistent student conduct process. The student conduct process is designed to be a learning experience that facilitates responsible conduct and positive citizenship among the University and greater community. For further information about the student conduct process, visit: www.uky.edu/studentconduct.

Community of Concern

University of Kentucky’s Community of Concern was established in 2011 to provide support for students and employees in crisis, or those who have been identified as exhibiting concerning or worrisome behavior. Our office works closely with campus resources to provide early intervention for students who may be struggling personally, or whose behavior has led others to be concerned for their well-being. CoC is also the central hub to address students’ immediate basic food and housing needs. Our Case Managers meet with students to provide connection and access to resources, create action plans for success, and monitor student progress. For more information, visit the COC website at: www.uky.edu/concern/.

Fraternity and Sorority Life

Fraternity men and sorority women have been part of the long-standing tradition at the University of Kentucky since the first fraternity was established in 1893. The Fraternity and Sorority Life Office includes professional fraternity and sorority advisors with more than 50 years of combined experience working with fraternal organizations. Fraternity and Sorority Life is a part of the Dean of Students Office and works collaboratively with other departments in the Division of Student and Academic Life to promote the success of organizations and students through education, guidance and advocacy. The professional staff advisors work in partnership with a team of fraternal housing coordinators who support facilities and large community projects. Each member of the staff also supports the governing councils and chapters in all areas of fraternity and sorority operations including membership education, leadership, community service, university involvement, finance, recruitment, scholarship, personal growth and accountability. They work collaboratively with council officers, members and chapter officers, as well as chapter advisors, alumni corporations and inter/national organization volunteers and staff.

The governing bodies for Fraternity and Sorority Life are the Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, Panhellenic Council, and United Greek Council, comprised of representatives from each group on campus.

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body for many of the men’s fraternities at the University of Kentucky. IFC host a structured primary recruitment process each semester so interested candidates can meet all of the organizations housed within this council. The IFC is currently the only council with a GPA requirement to participate in recruitment activities: a 2.7 (on a 4.0 unweighted scale, per University of Kentucky’s determination) high school GPA or a 2.5 college GPA for returning students and transfer students with at least 12 credit hours. Men interested in participating in recruitment must register and pay a fee.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) at the University of Kentucky is the coordinating body of the active historically black fraternities and sororities. NPHC organizations take new members into their organizations through a process called membership intake. This process is organized by each chapter individually and includes the selection of candidates, education about the organization and culminates with initiation and full membership in the organization. Students interested in joining any of the NPHC organizations must complete NPHC 101 - an in-person educational program organized by the council each semester to provide interested students with more information about each chapter’s history and membership expectations.

The Panhellenic Council is the governing body for the 14 National Panhellenic Conference sororities. Panhellenic hosts a primary recruitment process each fall semester to build relationships between chapter members and potential new members, discover shared interests and values among chapter members and potential new members and display the high standards held by all NPC member organizations. Women interested in participating must register and pay a fee.

The United Greek Council (UGC) at the University of Kentucky is the governing council for special-interest and culturally-based fraternities and sororities. Fraternities and sororities within the United Greek Council individually coordinate their recruitment processes by chapter. Culturally-based organizations will conduct membership intake and special-interest organizations will host a primary recruitment opportunity. To provide a centralized location to learn about all the organizations within UGC, the council hosts an open house event within the first few weeks of classes each semester.

The Fraternity and Sorority Life Office is in 518 Patterson Office Tower. For more information about each of our chapters, our governing councils, or recruitment and intake processes, call 859-257-3151 or visit www.uky.edu/greeklife/.

The services provided through the Disability Resource Center include, but are not limited to, determining needed accommodations, consulting with students regarding compensatory strategies, coordinating student services, assisting with campus and housing accommodation arrangements, and providing information about other available campus resources that may be of benefit to the student with a disability.

In order to receive accommodations, students with disabilities are required to self-identify by registering with the Disability Resource Center. All students requesting accommodations must provide current documentation of their disability and the need for accommodations before services can be provided. This will usually be in the form of a medical statement or report, or a psychological evaluation, or other related assessment from a qualified professional in the relevant field (such as a medical doctor, psychologist, psychiatrist, etc.).

Office for Institutional Diversity

The University of Kentucky prepares students for meaningful and responsible engagement within and across diverse communities. Through its own example and engagement, the University strives to improve the climate for diversity throughout Kentucky, a commitment given special importance and emphasis by shared history. The composite effect of work with students in classrooms, residence halls, offices, laboratories, clinics, libraries, and public places should be to enable them to develop a more enlightened worldview; attain a deeper understanding of and commitment to authentic democratic values and social justice; embrace a greater commitment to service and leadership for the common good; exhibit greater cultural knowledge and competence; and facilitate Kentucky’s success in the global economy.

The Office for Institutional Diversity has a primary responsibility to advance the University’s commitment to embracing difference and promoting increased knowledge of diversity and its significance as a fundamental value of the campus community. Of equal importance is its mission to enhance academic support services to help ensure the academic success and personal development of all students, but especially those students from backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented on the University campus.

Martin Luther King Center

Established on the University of Kentucky campus in 1987 as the Martin Luther King Center, this much-visited campus venue has been a vital resource, providing year-round programs and activities that have focused on the importance of cultural awareness and cross-cultural understanding. The center offers a relaxed and affirming atmosphere that enhances the recruitment and retention of students from diverse backgrounds. Entering its fourth decade of operation, the center has evolved into an education resource facility where all students, as well as faculty and staff of the university can engage each other through cross-cultural exploration and intellectual exchange.

Increasingly, research has shown a vitally positive link between intercultural engagement and student success. As a result, the King Center has sharpened its focus on diversity education and increased its support of the academic enterprise. In addition to cultural/educational programs consisting of lectures, concerts, artistic performances, film/video screenings and workshops, faculty involvement in the center has increased through the establishment of the Scholar-in-Residence (SiR). During his/her two-year assignment, the faculty SiR helps to situate many center programs and activities within the academic/intellectual realm, and engages students, faculty and staff in meaningful exploration and intellectual discourse. Check the King Center website for programs and scheduling details at: www.uky.edu/mlkc.

Mission

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. The center assists in the cultivation of events on campus which promote diversity awareness, cultural pride, and collaborative efforts between recognized student organizations of seemingly distinct interests. 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.

Cultural Competencies

The MLK Professional staff believes the center, and all of the learning experiences provided through it, gives students unique opportunities to learn about themselves, create their identities, discover and cultivate their talents, and develop and practice the skills necessary to be positive and productive leaders and citizens after they graduate from the University of Kentucky. We are a laboratory for experiential learning. As we bring our mission to life in the years ahead, we align the center’s initiatives with four cultural competencies that we believe are necessary for creating better leaders, better communities, and stronger programming. Through our learning laboratory, we strive to empower students too.

1.    Develop an appreciation for inclusion through self-awareness and consciousness of social and global issues (Awareness)

  • Fostering constructive discussions regarding issues relating to differences, identity, prejudice, and bias.
  •  Initiate opportunities for creative expression of diverse perspectives.

2.    Encourage the cultivation of civic responsibility and well-being through interpersonal interaction and communication (Attitude)

  • Through interactive activities, facilitated dialogues, service, and collaborations across the academic spectrum.
  • By nurturing the holistic development of University of Kentucky students, faculty, staff and community members.

 3.    Extend knowledge that challenges perspectives, promotes reflection, and stimulates application of pluralistic behavior (Knowledge)

 4.    Prepare students to lead in a global society and inspire social change (Skill/Action)

Center for Academic Resources and Enrichment Services (CARES)

CARES offers academic support services and enrichment opportunities that enhance the student’s undergraduate experience. The overall program goals are to increase the retention and graduation rates of students traditionally underrepresented in post-secondary education, including African American, Hispanic or Latinx, and Native American students as well as students receiving the William C.

Center for Graduate and Professional Diversity Initiatives

The Center for Graduate and Professional Diversity Initiatives focuses on recruiting diverse graduate and professional students in UK’s six health colleges and retaining diverse graduate and professional students in all colleges, contributing to an inclusive campus environment where all students can fully engage and succeed.

Professional Services

University of Kentucky Counseling Center: Consultation and Psychological Services

The UK Counseling Center: Consultation and Psychological Services (UKCC) has a staff of licensed clinicians and supervised graduate trainees whose primary function is to help UK students with mental well-being, personal and psychological concerns, career decision-making, and support for academic success. UKCC provides a variety of services ranging in intensity from drop-in self-care, wellness and stress management services to crisis intervention. In between, the UKCC offers support groups and brief group, couples and individual therapy.

UKCC clinicians will also assist students in finding treatment in the community, especially for longer-term mental health needs. Examples of self-care and psychological wellness services are Wildcat Wellness (therapy dog, mindfulness, yoga and relaxation) and all aspects of the Relaxation Room, which is located in 114 Frazee Hall, and offers space for meditation, arts and crafts, full-spectrum lights, biofeedback, and massage chairs. (Please note, the UKCC may be re-located for the 2020-21 academic year, so please visit the website www.uky.edu/counselingcenter/ for service location information.) UKCC also provides teletherapy services by phone or secure software.

Another drop-in service is Let’s Talk, which provides students an opportunity to have an informal conversation with a mental health professional in a location outside of the UKCC. These meetings do not require an appointment. Let’s Talk is an easy way for students to get an introduction to the Counseling Center services and meet one of the staff. Support groups are available for a number of student groups and concerns (e.g., Grief Support, Trans* and Gender Nonconforming Support, and Life Beyond ED: Eating Disorder Recovery) as are a variety of structured skills groups and therapy groups (ACT for anxiety, Koru Mindfulness, Understanding Self and Other (USO) Groups, Color Coded for students of color, CBT Group for Depression, and Wise Minds). Short-term individual, couples and group counseling services are available to assist students with concerns such as adjustment to college, relationship difficulties, career exploration/decision-making (including choice of major), depression, anxiety, discrimination/oppression, low self-esteem, life transitions, alcohol/substance use, eating and body image concerns, family problems, trauma, and/or longstanding dysfunctional behavioral patterns (e.g., procrastination, low motivation, organizational issues and impulsivity). Discussions are confidential.

To access UKCC services, most students utilize the same-day appointment system. Others may opt to call and schedule an appointment. There are many same-day appointments available each day. Please see the UKCC website for details regarding same-day appointment times, the typical process for initial assessments, and how to utilize crisis intervention services. To inquire about any of the UKCC’s services, students or those concerned about students may call 859-257-8701 between 8 A.M. and 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday. The UKCC is located in 106 Frazee Hall, which is on Administration Drive next to the Student Center (please note that address is subject to change). After-hours consultation for urgent matters is available by calling 859-257-8701 and pressing ‘1’ at the prompt.

The UKCC maintains an active outreach program, offering workshops, preventative programs and events to students, faculty, staff and community audiences on a variety of college life, wellness and mental health topics. In addition, faculty, staff, TAs, administrators, parents and other concerned parties can call the UKCC for consultations regarding students. Call 859-257-8701 for outreach and consultation services.

Eligibility and Limitations for Treatment

The Counseling Center offers an Initial Consultation to all students who are eligible for services. At that first brief meeting, students and clinicians collaborate to determine what might be helpful to address current concerns. Depending on the presenting issues and specific needs, some students will be directed to less intensive or drop-in wellness services, some will be referred out for specialized or more intensive services, and some will receive brief ongoing group, couples or individual therapy services at the Center.

With the exception of some optional testing services, UKCC services are free of charge to eligible undergraduate, graduate and professional students. Eligibility for UKCC services is based on enrollment; students must be paying for at least six credit hours (or any number of thesis or dissertation credits) at the University of Kentucky during the current semester. To be eligible for services in the summer, students need to be enrolled at UK during the previous spring semester AND preregistered for the upcoming fall semester, or they can be enrolled for any number of hours in the summer.

The James W. Stuckert Career Center

The Stuckert Career Center (SCC) is a comprehensive and centralized career center for students enrolled at the University of Kentucky. The Career Center’s programs and services are designed to support student career development and prepare them for a successful career launch. Career Center staff members work with students from their first-year experience through degree completion and beyond. The SCC collaborates with faculty, staff, student leaders, and UK’s college-based career services offices to provide comprehensive and integrated career services and programming.

All UK enrolled students have an account in Handshake, UK’s career management software platform. Students can activate their accounts using their computers or mobile devices. Through Handshake, students have immediate access to the multitude of SCC resources mentioned here, including online appointment bookings, an expansive online job board, and access to other customized, embedded career resources. Students can conduct internship and job searches in Handshake and apply directly to employers. Students can visit uky.joinhandshake.com/login to activate their Handshake accounts by using their linkblue I.D. and password. Students can also visit the Career Center for drop-in services and get help activating their Handshake accounts from the front desk staff in the Career Center lobby.

Through individual appointments, drop-in sessions, classroom presentations, and group workshops, students are provided tools for and assistance with: career assessments, determining work/life values, career decision-making, career exploration, internships, resume writing, interviewing preparation and practice,  job search strategies, networking with employers, researching salary information, salary negotiation, and preparing for a successful transition from campus to the professional world.

Students are encouraged to explore careers first-hand by participating in on-campus interviews, networking receptions and career fairs throughout the year as they begin seeking internships and full-time, career-related employment. Internship positions can be full-time or part-time, and are available in local, national and international settings. Students have the option of earning academic credit for internship experiences conducted within specified UK guidelines. 

These experiences provide ways that students can connect with career professionals in order to learn more about careers of interest and develop ongoing contacts with professionals in their fields. Students have opportunities to work alongside business organizations, nonprofit agencies, or other settings pertinent to their academic major and career goals. These experiences better prepare students to be more competitive and polished as graduate/professional school applicants and job candidates upon graduation.

The SCC offers an extensive collection of online, subscription-based resources including: Candid Careers, CareerShift, Vault and InterviewStream. These digital resources for students and alumni seeking 24/7 career services are available at: www.uky.edu/careercenter/ as well as in Handshake

UK students may call 859-257-2746 for further information about all current programs and services the Career Center offers. Drop-in hours are available for 10-15 minute sessions for students to discuss any career development questions with career advisors. The Stuckert Career Center is located at 408 Rose Street across from the Singletary Center for the Arts.

The Office of Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research provides coordination, leadership and support for the many programs at the University of Kentucky designed to promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creativity. The office is the starting point for any undergraduate student desiring to include mentored research in their undergraduate experience. Our website will familiarize mentors and students alike with the many and varied opportunities provided by the office, and by related programs and activities both on and off campus, focused on undergraduate research and undergraduate student excellence. A prominent service orchestrated by the Office of Undergraduate Research is the pairing of faculty mentors with undergraduate protégés to create a formalized, meaningful research experience across disciplines. Other services and opportunities include:

  • Assist in the pairing of undergraduate protégés with faculty mentors to create a formalized, meaningful scholarly or research experience
  • Research travel funding for students accepted to present at national conferences/meetings
  • Summer Research and Creativity Fellowships
  • Annual Showcase of Undergraduate Scholars
  • Posters-at-the-Capitol (presentation opportunity to State Legislatures)
  • Undergraduate Research Abroad Scholarship
  • Oswald Research and Creativity Competition
  • Buck 4 Brains Program

For more information, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research at 859-257-0049; visit us at: www.uky.edu/chellgren/undergraduate-research; or email us at: ugresearch@uky.edu.

The Office of Nationally Competitive Awards

The Office of Nationally Competitive Awards (NCA) is a gateway for high achieving students to pursue nationally and internationally competitive scholarship and study opportunities. These are awards offered by the governments of the U.S. and other countries as well as non-profit foundations and research organizations.  Some of these awards provide a direct financial benefit while the student is completing the undergraduate degree (Astronaut, Goldwater and Udall), but many support prestigious graduate school opportunities (Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Gates-Cambridge, Fulbright) or travel related to language acquisition (Boren, Critical Language Scholarships) or teaching English outside of the United States (Fulbright, JET). The financial benefit of these awards is considerable, but not the only, or even the primary, reason to apply. These awards connect the recipients to a community of scholars that offer lifelong opportunities and launch them into experiences that will shape their careers and their lives in ways they cannot imagine.

The process of applying for a nationally competitive scholarship is, in itself, a learning experience. It challenges the student to think through career plans, to set ambitious long-term goals, and to imagine how they can use their talents to shape and change the world. These awards require commitment from the student as the process of preparing a nomination packet takes place over several months, as students write multiple drafts of the personal statement and other required essays, secure in-depth letters of recommendation from faculty and prepare for interviews with the campus review committee for awards that allow only a limited number of UK students to be nominated.

Interested students can look over the list of opportunities at www.uky.edu/chellgren/competitive-awards/find-award and also reach out to the staff members for an individual appointment. For more information, email Pat Whitlow at pat.whitlow@uky.edu, or Emily Sallee at emily.sallee@uky.edu.

Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Center

The Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Center provides students, staff, and faculty the tools, support, and opportunities to shape a campus free of interpersonal violence, which can include dating and domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking. All students are encouraged to learn to explore ideas around consent and to become active bystanders by participating in our educational programs, which equip students with the knowledge and skills to create a safe and violence-free culture at UK. The Center also provides support, referrals, resources, and advocacy for survivors of sexual and gender-based interpersonal violence and their loved ones. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to contact the VIP Center for additional information or services.

The VIP Center is available Monday through Friday 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.
