Kelley, W. F.
The Illinois community college system is comprised of 39 districts encompassing 49 campuses which served a fall 1974 enrollment of 267,156 (over 50 percent of all students enrolled in public institutions of higher education in Illinois). According to legislative dictum, Illinois community colleges must offer programs in liberal arts and sciences, general education, adult education, and vocational education. This document provides a description of the programmatic organization of the Illinois community college system in the following program areas: transfer programs, career and occupational education, and general studies. In addition, criteria for granting approval for new programs are presented, along with a definition of the concept of comprehensiveness as applied to community college programs, and a definition of the roles of various state agencies in community college program development, coordination, and approval. Finally, guidelines are presented for completing annual reviews of existing community college programs. (Author/NHM)
