     The Council on Postsecondary Education’s Presidential Search Committee met early this afternoon and approved contract terms for the executive search firm selected to assist with the search for the Council’s third president.  The contract with Greenwood/Asher & Associates, Inc., of Florida, is set at a not-to-exceed amount of $165,000, which includes a professional fee of $130,000 and estimated expenses of $35,000.

     Kentucky is in the middle of the most dramatic economic and social transformation in its history. Double the Numbers: Kentucky’s Plan to Increase College Graduates explains that increasing bachelor’s degrees is the quickest, most direct way for Kentucky to increase its economic prosperity. College graduates earn more, are healthier, create a more robust economy, and enjoy a higher quality of life. The Double the Numbers plan outlines five statewide strategies for Kentucky to achieve this ambitious, but achievable goal. While this effort will not be easy, the benefits of Doubling the Numbers will be felt by all Kentuckians.
