The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) has released its score on the University of Kentucky’s diversity report. The university tied with one other public, a four-year institution for the highest score in the state, illustrating immense progress in its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. 

CPE evaluates all public, four-year institutions and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) institutions each year based on 29 different metrics of progress that align with the state’s overall strategic agenda for higher education. The report is driven by institutional initiatives organized by and focused on each of the following three areas: opportunity, success, and impact.

This year, the university earned a score of 30 out of 36; 12/18 for quantitative elements of the report and 18/18 for qualitative.
