As part of the Perkins V Plan in the State of Illinois, Model Programs of Study are being developed and articulated through specific guides for each program. Support for these efforts was provided by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB), and leadership for the development and publication of these guides was led by Northern Illinois University’s Education Systems Center. Four guides have been released in the following areas:
- Health Sciences & Technology
- Information Technology
- Manufacturing & Engineering
Each of these guides is available on the Model Programs of Study page of the Education Systems Center website.
Additionally, public comment is open on the draft guides using this Model Programs of Study Guides Feedback Survey through August 28, 2020.
