Kentucky State University Enters Into a Partnership With the University of Kentucky

Kentucky State University, the historically Black educational institution in Frankfort, has entered into a partnership agreement with the University of Kentucky’s College of Pharmacy.

Under the agreement, students will be able to earn a bachelor’s degree at Kentucky State and a doctor of pharmacy degree from the University of Kentucky on an accelerated schedule. Students will spend their first three years in undergraduate programs at Kentucky State and then four years at the University of Kentucky. Students will earn a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Kentucky State after they complete their first year at the College of Pharmacy.

Lucian Yates III, interim provost at Kentucky State University noted that “I am always excited when our students have opportunities to continue their education in graduate or professional schools. When they know that opportunities exist, perhaps it will cause them to work harder and plan more diligently. When students know their worth and know that pathways exist, I believe they will take advantage of them.”

Dr. Yates holds a bachelor’s degree in history and political science and a master’s degree in history and education from Morehead State University in Kentucky. He earned a Ph.D. in curriculum, instruction, and supervision at Ohio University.
