LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) _ A consultant has recommended that University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto give an annual State of the University address.
The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1LpNhg4 ) reports the recommendation comes amid complaints that UK’s administration isn’t clear about its long-term vision for development for the state’s flagship university.
The proposal to UK trustees was part of a yearly presidential performance review that surveyed faculty, students, donors and others.
The trustees voted Friday to accept the report and to consider its recommendations. Those proposals also include making Capilouto’s inner circle more diverse and improving communication between the president and the board.
The report was largely positive but sprinkled with mild criticism.
Most people surveyed said Capilouto is a strong manager willing to make difficult decisions if it will benefit UK in the long run.
