Director: Dr. Ann Kingsolver
The University of Kentucky Appalachian Center
emphasizes community-university partnerships in shaping research that is useful in and beyond the region, in keeping with the land grant mission of the University. Our role is to facilitate stronger connections between student and faculty researchers from across all colleges at the University of Kentucky whose teaching, research, learning and outreach includes a focus on Appalachia. We also work to strengthen relationships between colleges and universities in the Appalachian region, and between communities in the 54 Appalachian counties of Kentucky and university partners in collaborative projects documenting and addressing the region’s particular contributions and challenges in a global context.
