  1. Other Items:
    1. IAI Retreat
      1. The IAI Retreat planned by ICCB, IBHE, and IAI staff for GECC and IAI Majors co-chairs in conjunction with the administrative panels for IAI (IAI Steering Panel and IAI Advisory Committee) occurred on Friday, February 17th, at Illinois State University’s Bone Student Center. 
      2. During the meeting, the attendees discussed the course submission and review processes as well as other important IAI related items. 
      3. Some parts of the process should be reviewed and streamlined to simplify submission for our participating institutions and the review/approval process for the panel members.
      4. One exercise during the day included modifying a recent statement from J.C. Penney’s to reflect where we all want IAI to be:

 

A Breath of Fresh Air

 

To our students and institutions:

 

This year, we turn 15.  We’re fine with growing older.  We’re not fine with growing stale.  So, to celebrate, we’re going to throw open the windows and let in some fresh air.

 

          We’re rethinking and reimagining, and if we find that we’ve picked

          up any bad habits over the years, we’re going to leave them far

          behind.

 

We’re simply going to treat students, institutions and their representatives as we’d like to be treated ourselves, fair and square.

 

To help students transfer, we won’t make institutions jump through hoops to go through the submission process by having their courses receive a fair review.  We won’t burden the transfer process with endless requests for more information.  We’ll have clear rationales and consistent standards. We will publish clear and objective criteria for review and let institutions know up front what we want and why.  And it won’t stop there.

 

          We’ll keep improving communication with all panels, committees and participating institutions, dreaming up new ways to make you love IAI again.  We’ll strive to make the process simpler and more effective for the benefit of students’ education.

 

We do this because we are the best transfer mechanism in Illinois.

 

We want to be your favorite transfer system. We want to be the solution, not the problem.  We want Illinois to be the national leader in articulation.

 

  1. IAI Items:
    1. Legislation movement is potentially coming.  SB0059 is now gone, but there is a new similar bill being discussed.
    2. Panel Vacancies – this summer Krista will email all those serving on panels to see who wants to continue to serve

 

  1. Next meeting will be held Friday, October 19, 2012 at ISU Alumni Center Kasten Room 121.
