The president of Kentucky’s Council on Postsecondary Education says the council is developing a capital needs plan to submit to state lawmakers. Robert King made the comment in Morehead last week as the council met at Morehead State University.
“While we tend to want to see all the new buildings, the real need is for some of the older buildings that are now 30, 40, 50 years old and in pretty significant need of renovation and repair,” he said.
King says the CPE holds some of its meetings on campuses across the state to better understand the needs of higher education. While in Morehead, council members visited MSU facilities and got a closer look at some of its programs.
The CPE’s capital plan will be presented to the Kentucky General Assembly when it convenes for its budget session early next year.
