LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 19, 2024) – Robert Hayes is the Executive Director of Student Community Resources and Services in the UK Office for Student Success. His expertise and mission lies in providing support to first-generation students and offering academic advising within the College of Arts & Sciences.
