  • In 1997, the Kentucky General Assembly passed House Bill 1 (HB1) . HB1 completely revamped the higher education system in Kentucky. The law set out a plan that mandated that The University of Kentucky become a top 20 research university by the year 2020. The bill also created the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) Until this time, many of the Community Colleges were a part of the University of Kentucky”s Community College System and many of the technical colleges were operated by the Workforce Cabinet.

  • Technical and Community Colleges serve a large number of non-traditional students. Non-traditional students include adult learners, veterans, 1st generation students, and low-income students. Many community college students are minority students or work full time or are single parents.The course flexibility, the close proximity to a campus, and the affordability all help to make Community Colleges a plausible option for many Americans. http://kheaavid.com/

  • Over the past 10 years, Kentucky has improved faster than any other state on higher education issues according to the National Center for Higher Education ManagementRetrieved from Kentucky.gov on 5/1/12http://cpe.ky.gov/news/mediaroom/releases/nr_090711.htm
  • “For the first time in history, there is a growing national recognition of the vital role that community colleges play in America’s higher education system by preparing people for some of the most highly-skilled and high demand occupations in the 21st century. America aspires to once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world, and community colleges are being challenged to produce an additional 5 million graduates by the year 2020. The role that Kentucky’s community and technical colleges will play in achieving this national goal is both exciting and challenging.” Dr. McCall, 2010-2016 KCTCS Business Plan for Transformationhttp://www.kctcs.edu/transformation.aspx
  • Kentucky technical schools helped to maintain a high level of skilled workers and industries in the state of Kentucky. The industry created by the partnerships and initiatives between the state and private corporations helps to support a strong economy. http://www.kctcs.edu/System_Initiatives.aspx
