This page provides links to important resources from the Illinois Board of Higher Education, often known as the IBHE. The IBHE's website is a rich source of information about program review, including one key document: IBHE Guidelines for Program Review. The IBHE oversees the Illinois Public Agenda for higher education and the iTransfer system for the Illinois Articulation Initiative, among many other state-wide policy matters.

SIU Carbondale's Program Change Review Committee Report is in response to the state's efforts, through the IBHE, to identify underperforming programs, as defined by enrollments, graduation rates, and costs per credit hour. Related to the state's Performance-Based Funding Initiative, the university needs to address these concerns. The report linked below is SIU Carbondale's process for remediating, consolidating, and, in some cases, closing degree programs.
