The mission of the Office of Diversity is to continually foster an environment of inclusion and respect and appreciation of differences. Our efforts will support these goals through action, outreach, and accountability. Our efforts will be guided by the fundamental belief that all people deserve a chance to be successful within our College.



The Office of Diversity Programs within the College of Agriculture at University of Kentucky will serve as a symbol of excellence to the people of Kentucky and beyond through efforts in education, service, scholarship, and leadership in the field of agriculture. It is through these efforts that we strive to provide enrichment on the importance of diversity within our work, educational and social environments.
