ADVISORY COMMITEES

Each year, the Executive Director as authorized by the Illinois Community College Board appoints representatives to its advisory committees. Memberships are either at-large appointments selected by Illinois Community College Board staff, appointments recommended by various community college organizations, or ex officio members who represent committees of various relevant organizations. The latter appointments change as the groups' committee leadership positions change. All new appointments are for three-year terms except for those vacancies created by resignations during the year.

The advisory committees perform a critical service to the Illinois Community College Board in that they provide input from a local perspective on issues that affect the entire system. Currently the Board has four advisory committees.

Finance Advisory Committee, under the leadership of Ellen Andres, Chief Financial Officer, provides input on system budget development and policy issues dealing with system finance.

Program Advisory Committee, staffed by Brian Durham, Senior Director for Academic Affairs and CTE, assists staff with developing proposed policy regarding curricula and program accountability matters.

MIS, Research and Longitudinal Data Advisory Committee, working with Nathan Wilson, Senior Director for Research and Policy Studies, reviews all issues pertaining to research and data collection activities of the Board.

Student Advisory Committee, staffed by Deanna Blackwell, Director for Student Services, reviews all issues pertaining to students regarding ICCB policies, advising on those policies, and informing students on issues affecting the community college system.
