About the College/Department:
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
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.
The College of Education and Applied Human Sciences and the
Department of Teaching, Learning, and Educational Leadership are
committed to developing cultural competency, supporting diversity,
and preparing teachers to meet the demands of the world
