Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This paper contains executive summaries of the productivity-quality efforts of nine independent Illinois colleges and universities. The summaries typically include descriptions of the type of student population served, the type of campus, the institution's mission statement, and major areas in which degrees are offered. Specific initiatives to improve productivity and quality are detailed.

Increased instructional productivity and public service productivity are discussed, as are improvements in: expenditures against priorities; scholarships and grants; access to and employment of computers; staffing; student retention; hiring, promotion and tenure policies; and new program development. Many summaries include financial statements of savings that resulted from elimination or consolidation of programs, and from electronic data processing.
