Why 2+2 Programs? * Students receive the advantages of studying abroad without any loss of time or the risk of credits not being counted. * 2+2 programs allow qualified students to transfer to University of Kentucky’s campus in their third year, thereby saving the cost of a U.S. undergraduate degree. * Students with a desire to study in another country, understand another culture, and interact with professors and students working in a different policy and problem context see many advantages of a collaborative program over an exchange or semester-abroad experience. * It allows for students to benefit from a program that draws on the teaching, curricular, and research expertise of two institutions located in two countries. * The opportunity to be part of a program that offers an undergraduate degree in a different country enhances employability prospects and career path. * Multinational companies are interested in hiring multilingual students who have studied in both countries and understand the similarities and differences in the regulatory and cultural contexts.

Historian Gerald Smith Shares Favorite Tales From The Kentucky African American Encyclopedia

"UK at the Half" interview with UK history Professor Gerald Smith about the Kentucky African American Encyclopedia.

Now celebrated in several nations around the world, Black History Month began humbly when noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other African American leaders urged the nation to recognize a “Negro History Week” in February 1926. Fifty years later, President Gerald Ford officially designated February as Black History Month, defining it as an annual celebration of the achievements of African Americans and their roles in U.S. history. At the time, he urged the nation to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”

Decades later, University of Kentucky’s history professor and Martin Luther King Jr. Scholar in Residence Gerald L. Smith with colleagues, professor emeritus at Kentucky State University Karen Cotton McDaniel and professor of history at Western Kentucky University John A. Hardin took that challenge to heart. They began searching for the lost stories of African Americans who had an impact on the history of the Bluegrass State.

They published their 550-page tome of historical treasures, The Kentucky African American Encyclopedia, in 2015. The accolades and awards began flowing almost immediately – the 2015 Kentucky Archives Month Certificate for Merit for Writing/Publication from the Kentucky State Historical Records Advisory Board, the 2016 Living Legacy Award from the Kentucky Black Legislative Caucus, and the Thomas D. Clark Medallion Book Award from the University of Kentucky.
