University Cities Conference

A new species of city is making itself known across the country through its steady success during uncertain economic times. University cities have outgrown their college-town status and created dynamic economies around the major research universities in the urban core.

To better understand this phenomenon, the University of Kentucky Gaines Center for the Humanities and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) will bring national scholars as well as community and education leaders from these communities to Lexington for the first conference on this model on Oct. 13, at the Gatton College of Business and Economics building.
