Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This report of the Committee on the Study of Undergraduate Education in Illinois focuses on: student preparation and remediation; student achievement and scholarship and general education; and faculty and excellence in teaching. The committee, which was composed of policymakers, administrators, faculty, and students, established statewide policy goals and directions. Recommendations include: colleges should inform potential students and schools of the necessary academic preparation and should help strengthen the preparation of high school students; colleges should establish criteria for provisional admission to baccalaureate and baccalaureate transfer programs; remedial coursework should be provided in writing, reading, and mathematics; colleges should define objectives of general education and expectations for the development of baccalaureate-level skills, as well as time frames for students to meet these objectives; colleges should assure that faculty assignments reflect the importance of undergraduate instruction; and planning and resource allocation should emphasize the improvement of the quality of undergraduate instruction.
