Statewide Analysis for Public University Program Review in 1996-97: Synopsis.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This report summarizes each public program area in higher education in Illinois to be reviewed during the 1996-97 academic year and identifies the special issues pertinent to each. These programs include agriculture, engineering-related technologies, mechanics and repair, home economics, multi- and inter-disciplinary studies, natural resources, philosophy and religion, psychology, transportation, general liberal arts, and general liberal arts programs including the Board of Governors Bachelor of Arts program, an individualized program providing adults an opportunity to complete a Bachelor's degree. The study found an increase in enrollment in baccalaureate programs in agriculture, natural resources and psychology; a decline in enrollment and degrees granted in baccalaureate programs in engineering technologies, home economics, mechanics and repair and interdisciplinary studies; a low demand for philosophy and religion courses at the Bachelor's level; and slight risk in baccalaureate degrees in liberal arts. Trends in these programs at graduate level as well as statistics on gender, race, and foreign students, and cost effectiveness of all programs at all levels are noted. (CK)
