CPE hears report from Dr. Morgan, welcomes new member

CPE-E.jpgKentucky’s Council on Postsecondary Education heard three annual reports, including one from Morehead State University President Jay Morgan, and welcomed new member Kimberly Halbauer at its meeting Monday in Louisville.

Dr. Morgan presented the report for MSU while President Eli Capilouto presented the University of Kentucky report. The third annual report featured Kentucky Adult Education and was presented by Reecie Stagnolia, vice president for Kentucky Adult Education.

Halbauer is a senior vice president and investment advisors executive at Fifth Third Bank. Appointed by Gov. Matt Bevin, Halbauer was administered the oath of office by Jefferson District Court Judge Eric Haner.

In action items, the Council approved Kentucky State University’s proposal to increase tuition and mandatory fee rates 5 percent for in-state undergraduate students. The Council also approved market-competitive tuition and fee rates for the university’s graduate students.

The Council approved responses to comments concerning two new administrative regulations dealing with the comprehensive funding model for the public universities (13 KAR 2:120) and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System institutions (13 KAR 2:130). No changes were made to the regulations.

The Council heard the following reports: CPE President, Commissioner of Education and Committee on Equal Opportunities. Reports from the institutions were also available.

The Council appointed member Shawn Reynolds as chair of the Committee on Equal Opportunities and appointed Robert M. Croft of Louisville to the committee.

The next meeting of the CPE is set Nov. 2-3 at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.
