The Commission to Study the Future of Community Colleges in Kentucky was established in 1988 to review the accomplishments of the Kentucky Community College System (KCCS) and to provide direction for the KCCS towards the year 2000. Developed as part of a collection of reports on the KCCS for use by the Commission in its work, this report provides a detailed review of the resources of the KCCS. Following a brief introduction, the first section examines personnel, reviewing faculty ranks, degree-levels held by faculty, staff categories, administrative categories, clerical and support staff categories, and average faculty salaries. The following section examines instructional resources and technology, including libraries and library holdings, learning laboratories, computing resources, community resources, and telecommunications technologies. Next, the report reviews facilities and land holdings, reviewing total square footage of facilities space for the following uses: classroom and laboratory; library; special and health care; general; support; office; and unclassified. Finally, the report presents a detailed discussion of KCCS revenues for operations, examining national and local norms, and presenting information on expenditures, revenue increases for fiscal year 1988-89, the biennial budget request process, the appropriations recommendation formula, status of the state funding formula, sources of data, and the role of enrollment projections in the budget process.
