The KRADD region made considerable progress
closing the gap in educational attainment from
1990-2000

    graduating from high school

Unfortunately, the gap actually widened in
obtaining bachelor degrees.

What is the UCM?
  • IS an innovative consortium between postsecondary
    education partners

    learning opportunities close to home
  • Collaboration, and not competition, avoids
    duplication of services and programs while
    encouraging expansion of opportunities.

Tom Layzell of CPE supports UCM
Clearly, the UCM is an innovative and I
believe very important approach to delivering
academic programs to Kentuckians in your region .
. . It is the kind of innovative and
collaborative effort that we have urged the
institutions to pursue since postsecondary
education reform began in 1997.
37
This is all about Learning and Success

The UCM is serving two distinct student groups
traditional students who have recently graduated
from high school and non-traditional students
with work or family responsibilities which
prevented them from leaving the region to
complete their bachelor or master degree until
now.
