HISTORY

UNIVERSITY ORIGINS

In the early commonwealth of Kentucky, higher education was limited to a number of children from prominent families, disciplined apprentices, and those young men seeking entry into clerical, legal, and medical professions. As the first university in the territory that would become Kentucky, Transylvania University
University
was the primary center for education, and became the mother of what would become the University
University
of Kentucky. The early campus: Barker Hall in the center, the Main Building to the right, and a lake in the foreground where the Student Center was later built.

John Bryan Bowman founded the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky
Kentucky
(A&M), a publicly chartered department of Kentucky University, after receiving federal support through the Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act in 1865. Courses were offered at Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate . Three years later, James Kennedy Patterson became the first president of the land-grant university and the first degree was awarded. In 1876, the university began to offer master\'s degree programs. Two years later, A&M separated from Kentucky
Kentucky
University, which is now Transylvania University
University
. For the new school, Lexington donated a 52-acre (210,000 m2) park and fair ground, which became the core of UK's present campus. A"> Patterson Hall, shortly after its 1904 opening

Patterson Hall , the school's first women's dormitory, was constructed in 1904. Residents had to cross a swampy depression, where the Student Center now stands, to reach central campus. Four years later, the school's name was changed to the "State University, Lexington, Kentucky" upon reaching university status, and then to the " University
University
of Kentucky" in 1916. The university led to the creation of the College of Home Economics in 1916, and Mary E. Sweeney was promoted from chair of the Department of Home Economics to Dean of the College. (Later renamed the College of Human Environmental Sciences, this educational unit was folded into the College of Agriculture in 2003 as the School of Human Environmental Sciences ). The College of Commerce was established in 1925, known today as the Gatton College of Business
Business
and Economics .

In 1929, Memorial Hall was completed, dedicated to the 2,756 Kentuckians who died in World War I
World War I
. This was followed up by the new King Library , which opened in 1931 and was named for a long-time library director, Margaret I. King. The university's graduate and professional programs became racially integrated in 1949 when Lyman T. Johnson , an African American
African American
, won a lawsuit to be admitted to the graduate program. African Americans would not be allowed to attend as undergraduates until 1954, following the US Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision.

In 1939, Governor Happy Chandler
Happy Chandler
appointed the first woman trustee on the University
University
of Kentucky
Kentucky
Board of Trustees, Georgia M. Blazer of Ashland. She served from 1939 to 1960. In 1962, Blazer Hall was opened as the Georgia M Blazer Hall for Women in tribute to her twenty-one years of service as a University
University
of Kentucky
Kentucky
trustee.

Ground was broken for the Albert B. Chandler Hospital in 1955, when Governor of Kentucky
Kentucky
Happy Chandler
Happy Chandler
recommended that the Kentucky General Assembly appropriate $5 million for the creation of the University
University
of Kentucky
Kentucky
College of Medicine and a medical center at the university. This was completed after a series of studies were conducted that highlighted the health needs of the citizens, as well as the need to train more physicians for the state. Five years later, the College of Medicine and College of Nursing opened, followed by the College of Dentistry in 1962.

Nine years after the founding of The Northern Extension Center in Covington, representing the Ashland Independent School Board of Education, Ashland attorney Henderson Dysard and Ashland Oil "> Miller Hall

In May 1970, students at the university began protesting the shootings at Kent State University
University
. In response, Governor Louie Nunn deferred to the National Guard in an attempt to disperse the protesters. An outdated ROTC building was destroyed by fire. The Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University
University
of Kentucky Libraries has 13 oral history interviews with participants in the protests, university officials as well as former governor Nunn. Nine years later, the Singletary Center for the Arts opened, named in honor of former university president Otis Singletary. In 1979, the University
University

Kentucky
hosted the first Kentucky
Kentucky
Women Writers Conference , which is now the longest-running conference of its kind. The Kentucky
Kentucky
Women Writers Conference is now in its 31st year.

CONTEMPORARY HISTORY

The engineering plaza.

In 1997, the Kentucky
Kentucky
General Assembly reorganized the community college system, withdrawing the university's jurisdiction from all but the Lexington Community College. The other colleges were merged with the Kentucky
Kentucky
Technical College system and were placed under a separate board of control.

On April 3, 1998, work began on the William T. Young Library , which was the largest university project at the time of completion. The six-level William T. Young Library was constructed on south campus and the largest book endowment among all public university libraries in the country. William T. Young got his fortune from selling his peanut butter company to Procter "> The Chemistry-Physics Building

The Biological Pharmaceutical Complex Building complements the adjacent Biomedical Biological Science Research Building , and is expected to be part of the new university research campus. Other recent announcements include the construction of the new $450 million Albert B. Chandler Hospital , which will was one of the largest projects in the state's history in terms of size and economic impact.

In 1997, the Kentucky
Kentucky
General Assembly formed a compact with the university. The Top 20 Plan mandates that the University
University
of Kentucky becomes a Top 20 public research university by 2020. According to the compact, states with "Top 20" universities feature higher average household incomes, higher education attainments, healthier lives and more financial security. As a result, fewer citizens live in poverty and as a result, fewer public dollars are spent on health care. The plan would also spur technological advancements due to university-based research and increase the marketability of the state to investors. The Main Building in the foreground and the Patterson Office Tower in the background

As part of the "Top 20" plan, the university plans to,

* Increase enrollment by 7,000 students to 34,000; * Increase the state's highest graduation rate by 12% to 72%; * Increase the number of faculty by 625 to total 2,500; * Increase research expenditures by $470 million to total $768 million per year; and * Increase the university's role in Kentucky's "schools, farms, businesses and communities."

The "Top 20" plan has already produced results,

* Total enrollment increased from 24,061 in 1996 to 26,440 in 2004, an increase of 2,379. * The six-year graduation rate increased from 59.5 percent in 1998 to 61.2 percent in 2007. * Research expenditures increased from $124.8 million in 1996 to $297.6 million in 2003. It dipped slightly to $274 million for 2005. It is currently ranked 28th among public universities in sponsored research. * Endowment increased from $195.1 million in 1997 to $538.4 million in 2005.

In 2000, to help finance the "Top 20" plan, the university launched "The Campaign for the University
University
of Kentucky", a $600 million fundraising effort that was used to "enhance facilities, academic programs, public service, and scholarships." It passed that goal and the effort was raised to $1 billion. In March 2007, $1.022 billion was raised, months before the fundraising effort was set to end.

According to the Statewide Facilities Condition Assessment Report released on April 4, 2007, the university needs $12.5 billion to complete the 1997 mandate to become a "Top 20" institution.

The University
University
of Kentucky
Kentucky
currently has an endowment of $831.8 million, as of 2007. Prior endowments were $538.4 million in 2005 and $195.1 million in 1997, the rapid increases partially attributed to the "Top 20" Plan. Currently, the William T. Young Library book endowment is the largest among public universities in the United States.
