Kentucky American Water Supports UK Student Learning

Thanks to a generous gift from Kentucky American Water, UK students will soon have access to a newly renovated, technology friendly learning space in the William T. Young Library.

Kentucky American is donating $22,000 to transform the current Kentucky American Water Room into an innovative, active, and collaborative learning space that serves the needs of 21st century students.  Improvements will include a new projector system, white boards, new chairs with tablet arms for laptop computers, and new carpet and paint for the room.

This type of partnership is essential to UK Libraries as we create new and innovative models for learning spaces in the William T. Young Library which is approaching its 15th year as the main campus library.  These projects are especially important in support of President Eli Capilouto’s focus on the infrastructure of undergraduate student success.

We are extremely grateful for Kentucky American’s partnership in this recent project and for their role in supporting the initial construction of Young Library.
