The Final Report of the Higher Education Work Group
Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education
In October 2008, Governor Steven Beshear formed the Higher Education Work Group (HEWG), a bipartisan body of prominent business, education, and policy leaders. As a first step, the Governor called on the group to propose measures that could be implemented immediately to improve college access and affordability in the Commonwealth. HEWG recommends that the Governor consider the actions presented in this report to improve state financial aid, college transfer, and the efficiency of Kentucky's colleges and universities. All but three of the recommendations require no new revenue; the recommendations requiring additional funding (IB, 3D, and 3G) are included only for future consideration or action when economic conditions improve. The 14 recommendations in the Executive Summary represent the highest priorities of the HEWG. Seven additional recommendations appear in the body of the report (two on student financial aid, two on transfer, and three on cost containment). This final report reflects the consensus view of the HEWG and marks the completion of its gubernatorial charge. Appended to this report is the Governor's Revised Charge; a Letter from Coalition of Faculty Senate Leadership (COSFL); and an Executive Summary of the HEWG's January Report. (Contains 10 endnotes and a glossary.)
