The dreams of a man who spent most of his childhood in a dormitory at the University of Kentucky are no more.
On Wednesday, the university’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously to remove the man from his dormitory and close it for good, as part of a new initiative to improve student mental health and safety.
The man was the first person to be moved out of a dormitory after the campus adopted a new rule last fall, according to The Lexington Herald-Leader, which first reported the move.
The university had been forced to make a series of changes to the way it handles mental health issues.
The new rule mandated that dormitores have to have an approved health care provider in the room where they live for an average of six months to be eligible for permanent residency.
The campus had been using that exemption for more than 10,000 students who had lived in dormitors since the dormitory program was launched in 2013.
However, the new rule allowed dormitore residents to stay in their dorms for up to six months if they have no documented mental health concerns, and the university has said it’s now taking steps to better understand how and when they are discharged.
The policy has been controversial, with some calling for the institution to move its program to a different campus.
The decision to move the man out of the dormitome came after a two-week meeting on Wednesday.
The board, which includes university President Charles Tate, said the move would save the campus $5.3 million in direct student costs, and prevent the death of a student.
“There are some very serious concerns around this, and that’s what we’re working on,” the board said in a statement released to the campus community.
“This is a difficult and difficult decision, but we’re committed to ensuring that students are cared for, cared for well, and are not forgotten.”
However, some advocates for students with mental health needs said the change will not bring about the kind of change they are hoping for.
“The dream dorm is the dream, and this is really the nightmare,” said Tanya Nogales, director of the Louisville chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
That’s what this is about.” “
That’s why I think it should be closed.
That’s what this is about.”
The man who lived in the dorm had spent much of his life in the hotel room where he grew up, according and was transferred to the dorm in 2012.
The school, however, said in the statement that it has “learned a lot” from the man’s experiences.
“While it is important to emphasize that there are no plans to move this man out anytime soon, we have already begun the work necessary to improve the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff,” the statement said.
The university has been under intense scrutiny in recent years as it has struggled to address mental health problems among its students and faculty. “
As part of our efforts to build and sustain our program, we are continuing to invest in innovative ways to provide a more robust mental health care network, including the provision of more intensive, comprehensive care for residents, as well as ongoing education and training.”

In February, the American Psychological Association released a report on campus that found that one in three students with serious mental illness was in the U.S. on campus, with nearly half experiencing some kind of distress or impairment in their lives.
The number of students with a serious mental health condition on campus had nearly tripled since 2015.
