Illinois Articulation Initiative: Policy and Procedures Manual.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This Policy and Procedures Manual was prepared by the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) Technical Task Force to assist college and university administrators, faculty members, and other staff participating in the IAI. The preface contains background information on the IAI, whose goal is to facilitate inter-institutional transfer, and its initial task of developing a transferable general education curriculum. The next sections include the Board of Higher Education's policies on transfer and articulation, institutions eligible to participate in the IAI-all Illinois associate and baccalaureate degree-granting institutions, and the requirements for the formation and ensuing role of a baccalaureate major panel. The manual identifies panel operating procedures, consisting of the panel meeting, recommendation development, and recommendation implementation; panel members are identified in terms of principles and replacement processes. The steering panel's criteria for endorsement, course assignment review for general education and majors, and its appeals process follows. The document concludes with the public university-community college academic leadership conflict resolution statement, and IAI's roles and responsibilities. (YKH)
