CPE re-elects Pam Miller as chair

Feb. 8, 2013 — Pam Miller of Lexington was re-elected to her second term as chair of the Council on Postsecondary Education and Dan Flanagan of Campbellsville was re-elected vice chair. The Council is the state’s higher education and adult education coordinating agency.

“This is an exciting time for the Council,” said Miller. “There are a lot of changes occurring on our campuses, not only for traditional students but for adult learners who want to improve their earning power.

“Postsecondary education is the key to a better job and a better economy in Kentucky,” she added.

The former mayor of Lexington-Fayette County, Miller was appointed to the Council in 2008 and served as vice chair from February 2010 until December 2011.

Flanagan, who was appointed to the Council in 2005, operates a large farming business. He formerly served as the deputy commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, held several positions at Campbellsville University, and is a retired pastor.

“I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve on the Council and be a part of this important work for Kentuckians, especially in today’s economy where some form of higher education is more important than ever before,” said Flanagan.

In other organizational business, Miller appointed members Glenn Denton of Paducah, Joe Graviss of Versailles and Marcia Ridings of London to serve on the Executive Committee, which also includes the chair and vice chair. The Executive Committee reviews all agency budget and personnel matters, provides for an annual audit of the agency, and evaluates the president.

In other business, the Council took action and heard reports on numerous items at its meeting held Feb. 8 in Frankfort.

Approved minor revisions to the 2011-15 Strategic Agenda metrics and strategies.

Approved the 2013-14 tuition and mandatory fee policy and timeline, which calls for setting tuition ceilings at the April 18 meeting and voting on each institution’s proposed tuition and mandatory fee rates at the June 20 meeting.
