ILLINOIS BOARD OF HIGHER EDUCATION


Created by the General Assembly in 1961, the Illinois Board of Higher Education is the coordinating body for the state's systems of college and universities including: nine public universities on 12 campuses; 39 community colleges on 48 campuses; 104 independent not-for-profit colleges and universities; 15 independent for-profit institutions; and 26 out-of-state institutions. IBHE also oversees 213 private business and vocational schools, along with 79 extension campuses. Private business and vocational schools are privately owned/operated and educate students who have a high school degree or equivalent in preparation for a trade, vocation, or profession.

The IBHE Board is comprised of 16 members, ten of which are appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. One member each of a public university governing board and of a private college/university board is appointed by the Governor. Also serving are the chairman of the Illinois Community College Board; the chairman of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission; and two student members. One of the 10 appointed by the Governor with the consent of the Senate must be a faculty member at an Illinois public university.
