We know that profound solutions to society’s most complex problems often are found through the collaboration of disciplines, or a transdisciplinary approach to education, research and service. 

TEK helps our students today and Kentucky’s workforce tomorrow. To do this, students learn leadership and employability skills, gain experience through team-based approaches, and work with experts from disciplines across the institution and community — in areas such as business, humanities, and math and natural science — to solve Kentucky’s biggest problems while gaining essential employability skills.  


Provide opportunities for students to learn essential workforce skills in newly created and refreshed undergraduate courses
