Charges: This report should address the charges below.
1. Review problems confronting students regarding the transfer of course credit between institutions of higher education. Evaluate current transfer policies of all higher education institutions and identify ways to simplify transfers between and among institutions.
2. Identify effective measures the legislature, P-16 institutions, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Texas Education Agency and other entities should take to close performance and participation gaps within Texas and consider aligning curriculum and standards in P-16 education to improve student preparation.
3. Review differences in quality, admissions policies, resources and mission between rural and urban institutions of higher education and between community colleges and four-year institutions. Determine whether such differences warrant different performance measures in areas such as retention and graduation rates, faculty workload and funding formulas.
4. Study the reasons and importance of the fact that many institutions have fund balances that are negative or balances that are declining over time.
5. Evaluate the need and possible benefits of establishing a state-funded and state-operated chiropractic program in a state university system, including the possible transfer of a private chiropractic institution to a state university system.
6. Review the effects on higher education attendance rates, degree availability, graduation rates and facilities ten years after the beginning of the South Texas/Border Initiative.
7. Evaluate the implementation of SB 149, 75th Legislature, Regular Session, relating to post-tenure review for faculty, and consider faculty workload policies in determining the law's effectiveness.
8. Actively monitor agencies and institutions under the committee's oversight jurisdiction.
