Summary

Trends and issues likely to affect Kentucky higher education in the future are discussed along with recommendations of the Prichard Committee on Higher Education in Kentucky's Future. Projections pertaining to population, resources, social issues, inflation, and the change from goods production to production of services and the creation of knowledge are presented. It is suggested that three important elements to reform and improvement of higher education are an increased emphasis on: quality in higher education, creative leadership, and more effective use of financial resources. Issues and recommendations pertaining to quality include the following areas: higher education and the schools, admission policies, teacher education, remedial education, highly talented students, and a fund for academic excellence. Recommendations are made regarding the following academic programs: graduate programs, professional education, legal education, medical education, dental education, nontraditional students and programs, and professional enrichment. Additional recommendations concern: the faculty, research at the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville, research at the regional universities and Kentucky State University, cooperation in research, public service, higher education finance, and the financial needs of higher education. Prerequisites to quality are identified, including promoting diversity among institutions and using flexible teaching methods to meet the needs of students. Two minority opinions on legal education are also presented. (SW)
