In this interview, former University of Kentucky president, Frank Dickey, remembers how the state's modern community college system began to develop in the early 1960s under Governor Bert Combs. Dickey recounts the decision to leave governance of the new system under the University of Kentucky and describes how the university's charter as a land grant institution affected the establishment of new colleges across the state. He also discusses why some opposed the governance of the community college system by the University of Kentucky. Dickey concludes with thoughts about his extensive experience as an educator in North Carolina.
