LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A task force has been appointed to study the alcohol policy at the University of Kentucky.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/16Y9Bwq) reports President Eli Capilouto made the appointments on Tuesday of 15 university officials and community members.

The panel, called the Work Group on Student Health and Safety, will examine the current ban on alcohol and factors leading to alcohol abuse and ways to prevent it.

Capilouto said last year he was interested in possibly changing the university's alcohol policy. The comment came after community groups complained that the campus ban led more students to drink in surrounding neighborhoods.
