Overview of Function and Structure
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education is a fourteen-member public body created in 1971 to: ◦ Define the educational missions of public colleges and universities ◦ Plan and coordinate Indiana’s state-supported system of postsecondary education ◦ Review budget requests from public institutions and the State Student Assistance Commission ◦ Approve or disapprove for public institutions the establishment of new programs or expansion of campuses The Commission is not a governing board, but a coordinating agency that works closely with Indiana’s public and independent colleges.
The Governor appoints twelve members, nine representing a Congressional District and three at-large members, to serve terms of four years. In addition, the 1990 legislature added a student and a faculty representative who are appointed by the Governor for terms of two years. The Commission also has a professional staff of eleven.
