LEXINGTON, Ky. — The University of Kentucky James W. Martin School of Public Policy and Administration and the Henry Clay Center have established a formal affiliation to aid in the advancement of public policy education and bipartisan engagement.
The announcement was made jointly by UK President Eli Capilouto and Henry Clay Center Board co-chairs Bill Giles and Robert Clay.
Founded in 2007 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, the Henry Clay Center is dedicated to the education of tomorrow’s leaders in the skills necessary for statesmanship, dialogue, negotiation, and compromise.
As a result of the new alliance, UK will serve as the host campus for the center’s flagship college and high school student congresses, which will receive academic curriculum support from the Martin School. The Clay Center will now be physically based in the Martin School.
