Illinois Articulation Initiative Policy and Procedures

Panel Member Identification

Principles

All Illinois Articulation Initiative panels will need to continue to operate for the foreseeable future.

Panel size depends on the diversity of disciplines represented (General Education Field Panels) or the number and sector of institutions offering programs (Baccalaureate Majors' Panels). Optimum size, assuming diversity of both disciplines/subfields and institutions, is 22 to 26 members. In no case should a panel be fewer than 10 members.

Since different methods are used to identify initial panel members from the three sectors and from the transfer coordinators, these same methods should be used to identify replacements.

In replacing panel members, sector and disciplinary/subfield representation should be maintained.

All panels select their own co-chairs.

The Steering Panel will continue to include three types of members: The co-chairs of each of the General Education Field Panels, representatives from institutions in each of the three sectors, and representatives of the Transfer Coordinators of Illinois Colleges and Universities.

Replacement Processes

Sector/Institutional Representatives:

  • Public Universities and Independent Colleges and Universities

  • IBHE staff coordinates identification of panelists from participating public universities and independent colleges and universities, based on size of program and giving consideration to frequency of representation and special institutional interests or missions.
  • Institutions will be given an opportunity to name a replacement for a leaving panel member. If an institution chooses not to replace a member, another participating institution from that sector will be given an opportunity to name a member to the panel.
  • Community Colleges

  • ICCB staff coordinates identification of panelists from participating public community colleges, giving consideration to size of program, regional representation, frequency of representation, and special college interests or missions.
  • ICCB staff consults with the organization of chief academic officers to select an initial or replacement member for each panel.
  • ICCB staff consults with the Faculty Organization to select an initial or replacement member for each panel.
  • Transfer Coordinator Representatives

  • The Transfer Coordinators' organization elects representatives to the Steering Panel on a rotating basis.
  • The co-chairs of the Transfer Coordinators of Illinois Colleges and Universities select initial and replacement panel members.
