The Commonwealth of Kentucky isn’t satisfied with the status quo when it comes to higher education. Goals for improvement of postsecondary education in Kentucky are set by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education, which has established a strategic agenda designed to guide public policy in regard to higher education. The council’s goals include, but are not limited to: increasing the production of high-quality degrees and completion rates in the state, particularly for lower-income minority students who are underrepresented; decreasing the financial barriers to higher education access and completion; and increasing educational attainment and quality of life in Kentucky’s communities “through regional stewardship, public service, and community outreach.” The council’s website also contains helpful information on planning for college, paying for college, transferring credits between Kentucky colleges, online learning options, and adult education opportunities.
