We could learn a thing or two from zombies. The urge to survive is like trying to navigate in higher education today. It makes us feel lifeless at times; our relentless drive to stumble forward with the notion of getting closer to what we want. Our commitment to move towards a goal, even if we have no concept of worth. And of course the desire to eat brains - who doesn't want brains? Kentucky's efforts are guided by a five-year strategic agenda, Stronger by Degrees. This guiding document, organized around the themes of opportunity, success, and impact, highlights 11 objectives. One of those objectives is to promote academic excellence through improvements in teaching and learning. To support the strategic agenda, the Council on Postsecondary Education has implemented initiatives to support the twenty-four 2-year and 4-year public institutions, with a focus on academic quality. Participants will have the opportunity to define academic quality, engage in a discussion regarding the merit of a state's involvement in the enterprise of higher education, and consider the role of their statewide governing, policy, and/or coordinating boards and how they can have a key role in promoting academic excellence.
