Governor Steven L. Beshear signed an Executive Order on October 21, 2008, establishing the Higher Education Work Group. The work group - comprised of prominent business, education, and policy leaders - produced its first report in January 2009 which identified a number of actions the Governor could take immediately to reduce college costs and improve efficiency in the system within current budget constraints.
In June 2009, the Governor reconvened the work group and charged it with producing a report by November 1, 2009. The second report will focus on student financial aid, transfer, remediation and graduation, and cost savings.
