Program of Distinction
Under Kentucky state law, one program from each regional university has been chosen as a Program of Distinction earning more resources and greater recognition.
In 1998 the College of Justice and Safety (then the College of Law Enforcement) was awarded this designation.
The award and funds have empowered the College in many ways. They have provided for improved technology, more personnel, scholarships, faculty fellowships, research and an increase in online learning offerings.
