- Report On The Feasibility Of Textbook Rental Programs And Other Textbook Cost-Saving Alternatives In Illinois Public Higher Education (2/2007)
In spring 2006, the Illinois Senate adopted Senate Resolution 692 directing the Illinois Board of Higher Education, in conjunction with the Illinois Community College Board, to study the feasibility of implementing textbook rental programs at Illinois community colleges and public universities and/or other textbook cost saving alternatives.
The study concludes that a statewide textbook rental program for public colleges and universities would likely reduce costs for students and yield other benefits, such as ensuring that all students have access to required books and materials. The study further documents that rental programs could be financially feasible if funding for the very substantial initial start-up costs were secured. However, beyond the formidable financial obstacles, certain barriers and limitations would likely restrict the practicability of universal rental programs.

of Committee to Conduct Inquiry Into Masters Degree
in Social Work Program
to the General Assembly in Response to House Resolution 19
House Resolution 19 directed the Board of Higher Education
to conduct an inquiry into issues surrounding the Master of
Social Work degree at Governors State University. This report,
submitted to the General Assembly on March 15, 2001, examines
the reasons that candidacy for accreditation of Governors
State Universitys Master of Social Work was denied;
the efforts by the University to address reasons for denial;
the extent to which students were informed as to the status
of the program; and options to address the needs of students
enrolled in the program. The report presents a series of recommended
actions for the General Assembly and the Board of Higher Education
to take to avoid such occurrences at any public university
in the future. The report recommends that the Board of Higher
Education change its own policies and practices to review,
within three years of approval, new programs that require
accreditation for licensure.
