Status Report on the Illinois Articulation Initiative.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
The Illinois Articulation Initiative is a comprehensive statewide effort among colleges and universities to enhance the transfer process for students among all sectors of higher education in Illinois. One of the main features of the initiative is the general education core curriculum and a list of statewide articulated general education courses that will be accepted for transfer by all colleges and universities in Illinois. The general education core curriculum requirements include courses in communications, mathematics, physical and life sciences, humanities and fine arts, and social and behavioral sciences. Another main feature of the initiative is a program guide and a list of articulated lower-division courses for each baccalaureate degree major field that will transfer and satisfy major field requirements at any Illinois college or university that offer that degree. Major field articulation panels have been established for the following 17 programs: agriculture, art, biological sciences, business, clinical laboratory science, computer science, criminal justice, early childhood education, elementary education, engineering, music, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychology, secondary education, and special education. A computerized system to maintain a list of all articulated courses at all participating colleges and universities in Illinois is currently under review. A list of participating colleges and universities is appended. (TGI)
