Three years ago, University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy Professor Joseph Fink was tabbed as the school's faculty athletics representative by then-President Lee Todd. Now, he has been appointed for a second term by President Eli Capilouto.

Ethan Levine from UKNow writes about Fink and the role he plays:

According to the university's administrative regulations, the faculty athletics representative (FAR) "shall represent faculty concerns for the institution's conduct of its intercollegiate athletic program. The FAR shall demonstrate the faculty's belief that the intellectual and emotional development of students is the primary mission of the institution and that the value of athletics shall be measured by their contribution to that goal. The FAR will work closely with athletic administration and staff to ensure that these goals are realized."

As FAR, Fink represents the university's faculty in not only the Southeastern Conference (SEC), but also in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

And no one better fits the job than Fink.  The man is like Forrest Gump around UK's campus; he's done almost everything and met almost everyone that UK has to offer.  He is currently a professor of pharmacy law and policy in the UK College of Pharmacy, as well as a professor in the College of Public Health.  He is also a professor in the Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, where he once served as acting director.

The story has much more about Fink and what he does to make sure UK and its athletic department remain strident partners.
