UKCOP challenge coins in a pile


Our graduates are awarded the UKCOP challenge coin during their graduation ceremony as a recognition of their membership in our family and a reminder to “pay it forward,” by continuing our legacy of innovation, collaboration, and excellence. The coin is a piece of the College for graduates to keep with them in recognition of everything they've accomplished, as well as our belief in their ability to push for greatness. If you are an alum of our program and have not received your Challenge Coin, you may request one using this form.


The purpose of this survey is to assess the career and financial support needs of our current students and alumni. Your responses to this survey will be saved in a secure database accessible only by limited UKCOP employees and will NOT be tied to your main UK record. Should you have any issues with this form, contact Rosa Mejia (

Take Survey

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
