Recognition Procedures Manual for Illinois Public Community Colleges.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This manual outlines the administrative procedures to be followed by the Illinois community colleges in implementing state policies concerning audit and recognition evaluations, which are conducted periodically by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB). The sections of the Illinois Public Community College Act that grant the ICCB the legal authority to set standards for individual colleges and to issue recognition certificates to institutes meeting those standards are presented first. The manual then outlines the steps in the recognition process; these are: (1) formal application to the ICCB; (2) collection of data in the areas of administration, instruction, public service, finance, facilities, and institutional research; (3) formation of a recognition team consisting of ICCB personnel and peer representatives from other colleges; (4) the recognition visit itself; and (5) the compilation of a recognition report to be presented no later than three weeks after the visit. Appended to the manual are a tentative schedule of recognition visits for 1981 through 1986, an outline of the information needed in the recognition process, a description of the categories of recognition that can be awarded, and the policies for review and appeal.
