Value of the System

A unified system creates value for taxpayers

Under the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, many services are centralized, including student financial aid, payroll, technology services, human resources and legal counsel. This eliminates the need for duplicative staff at the colleges while streamlining efficiencies. Without these cost-effective measures, KCTCS colleges would need an additional $50 million and hundreds of additional staff to provide the same level of services. 

For every dollar taxpayers invest in KCTCS, they receive $3.60 in return through added taxes and public sector savings.
