The University of Kentucky has made the Gatton College facility a leading academic priority. Given the project authorization from the state and the strong financial support from our alumni and friends, the College is moving forward with a new facility that will allow increased enrollment, more community and student study spaces, enable implementation of modern teaching methods, and enhance the identity and competitiveness of the College among its peer institutions.

Gatton Professor, Chris Bollinger featured on WKYT Investigates: The cost of shoplifting  
  LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It is a crime that has a ripple effect on the whole economy, University of Kentucky economist Dr. Chris Bollinger says.

"That's $12 billion that essentially is lost," Bollinger said. "It's going to shoplifters."

Bollinger said the average individual loses about $400 a year because of shoplifters. It's not something that you would immediately notice, but it is an expense that you absorb every day. Bollinger said it is best to think of shoplifting "kind of like a tax" that is shared by both the consumer and the producer.
