About Leila Salisbury and University Press of Kentucky
Leila, who began her career in marketing at UPK, returned this summer as the director after eight years directing the University Press of Mississippi. She just completed a term on the national board of directors of the American Association of University Presses (AAUP), an organization of nonprofit publishers whose members strive to advance scholarship through their publications.

 The University Press of Kentucky is a consortium press of universities and colleges in Kentucky, and NKU is a member. The mission of UPK is “the publication of books of high scholarly merit in a variety of fields for a largely academic audience and the publication of books about the history and culture of Kentucky, the Ohio Valley region, the Upper South, and Appalachia.”
