Eastern Kentucky University is a regional, coeducational, public institution of higher education offering general and liberal arts programs, pre- professional and professional training in education and various other fields at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Located in Richmond, Madison County, Kentucky, EKU has a distinguished record of more than a century of educational service to the Commonwealth. Eastern Kentucky University is committed to access, equal opportunity, dignity, respect, and inclusion for all people, as integral to a learning environment in which intellectual creativity and diversity thrives.

Situated near the heart of the Bluegrass, Richmond is served by a network of major highways that make EKU easily accessible from all parts of Kentucky and surrounding states. Richmond is 26 miles southeast of Lexington, Kentucky. Interstate Highways I-75 (north-south) and I-64 (east-west) make the metropolitan areas of Cincinnati, 112 miles to the north, and Louisville, 110 miles to the west, within convenient distance by automobile. Richmond is also served by U.S. Route 25 from Southeastern Kentucky and Kentucky Route 52 from the east and west. The Bluegrass, Mountain, Daniel Boone, and Cumberland Parkways provide even greater accessibility by automobile since the city is located near the convergence of these arterial highways into the interstate system.

EKU is dedicated to high-quality instruction, scholarship, and service, and places emphasis on the three in that order. Through its colleges and schools, the University seeks to offer quality instruction at a variety of degree levels in general education, the arts, the sciences, business, education, pre- professional and professional areas, and applied and technical disciplines. Through consultative services, continuing education, and the extended campus, the University seeks to provide service to the community and the region. Research seeks both to advance knowledge in the subject matter areas with which the University is concerned and to support the primary function of teaching.

Eastern Kentucky University is an EEO/AA institution that values diversity in its faculty, staff, and student body. EKU is deeply committed to enriching diversity, equity, and inclusion through ongoing efforts to cultivate a sense of belonging for all EKU community members. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are more than meeting a numerical goal at EKU. It is fundamental to our mission as a school of opportunity. We will strive to provide an inclusive academic curriculum, promote equity and access in recruitment and retention, and develop meaningful partnerships with our diverse region. As an institution of higher education, we are committed to engaging in dialogues that lead to responsible action to thoughtfully address the changing realities of our diverse and global world.
