Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Board of Higher Education Act and the Public Community College Act. Removes application to public community colleges and the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) with respect to provisions concerning the Board of Higher Education's (IBHE) information system, approval of new units of instruction, research, and public service and review of existing programs of instruction, research, and public service, approval of plans for capital improvements of non-instructional facilities, and examination of the books, records, files, and other information of a public institution of higher education and submission of budget proposals to the IBHE for operations and capital needs. Provides for the IBHE's master plan and admission standards for public community colleges to be made in cooperation with the Illinois Community College Board. With respect to the authority of the IBHE over community colleges in provisions concerning performance metrics and the underrepresentation of certain groups in higher education, changes that authority to the ICCB. Removes a requirement that the IBHE approve requests for new community college districts and approve educational service contracts (instead of requiring only ICCB approval). Removes a requirement that the ICCB file copies of community college financial statements with the IBHE. Requires a community college district to report administrator and faculty salaries and benefits to the ICCB instead of the IBHE. Effective July 1, 2015.
