UK debuts creed that represents school’s values



After several months of development, I am proud to announce the Board of Trustees approved a creed representing the values we embody here at UK.

This process started in August as a creed committee consisted of administrators, faculty, students and myself writing and rewriting drafts.

The creed gives an answer to the question, “What does it mean to be a part of the University of Kentucky?” Though we each may have our own answers, we hope the creed provides a less abstract pronouncement of our values.

The University of Kentucky’s creed reads:

Though the school year is drawing to a close, this creed will be prominently displayed at events this upcoming fall. This effort is a wonderful example of multidivisional efforts in bettering our institution as students, faculty, staff and alumni have all contributed to the creation of this document.

It is our hope this creed will reflect our common values and help mold our idea of what it means to be a Wildcat.
