On Tuesday, April 18th, Martin School Doctoral Candidate Kyung Ha Oh successfully defended her dissertation. Titled, Three essays on rural education: Descriptive studies focused on federal rural definitions and policy changes, the dissertation discusses “how rural and non-rural schools can be perceived differently depending on how we define ‘what is rural’,” to quote Dr. Oh. She explains:
Rajeev Darolia, Ph.D., the Wendell H. Ford Professor of Public Policy and Economics at the University of Kentucky’s Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, has joined the U.S. Department of Education as a senior advisor in the Office of the Chief Economist for one year.
During the University of Kentucky’s 2023 May Commencement, the Martin School of Public Policy and Administration will celebrate the first full class of undergraduates to earn a bachelor’s degree in public policy.
