The University of Kentucky Research and Education Center is fundamentally interdisciplinary, applying the biological and social sciences to challenges in agricultural, food and environmental systems. Our scholarship encompasses human and natural resources and their interaction.

UKREC holds a unique position as part of the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station and the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service and remains dedicated to sustaining the heritage of impact and achievement by these great institutions and the rapidly changing issues and challenges associated with them.
