Education


There is an increasing correlation between education level and income in our technological-driven world. Employers are attracted to communities that have a critical mass of highly skilled works. For that reason, Greater Louisville has gone to great lengths to maximize the educational opportunities available to residents at all levels. There are a number of strong public school systems in the area, and several options for private education. Plus, there are several nationally-recognized universities that offer degrees in several in-demand fields of study. Many of them also have services for adult learners who are continuing their education.

“We are so collaborative in this city, education facility to education facility. I think we have a wonderful think tank with these great minds that come together.”
– JoAnne Berryman, Dean of the Kosair Charities College of Health & Natural Sciences at Spalding University

JoAnne Berryman, Dean of the Kosair Charities College of Health & Natural Sciences at Spalding University, boasts, “We are so collaborative in this city, education facility to education facility. I think we have a wonderful think tank with these great minds that come together. We’re trying to meet the needs of our time at Spalding and I think everyone else is too. I’m very proud of our community.”

Berryman points to 55,000 Degrees as a sign of Greater Louisville’s commitment to top-notch education. Local leaders formed the organization with the goal of adding at least 40,000 more bachelor’s degrees and 15,000 more associate’s degrees to the community. The group has a scholarship program and offers assistance to adults seeking to learn new skills for career advancement.

Education is an important factor in economic development because it can determine a person’s quality of life. Greater Louisville residents have a competitive edge in this unpredictable economy because of their ready access to the skills and knowledge coveted by modern business. The region’s institutions have dedicated themselves to upholding their own high academic standards.
