HB 706 Clarifies public institutions to establish courses.

Introduced by: David G. Brickley | all patrons    ...    notes | add to my profiles

SUMMARY:

Clarifies the authority of the various governing boards of the public institutions of higher education to establish courses of study, academic programs, and requirements for academic credit. In a second enactment clause, the measure requires the governing boards to grant academic credit for courses offered in connection with the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (R.O.T.C.). The authority of the various governing boards to "generally direct the affairs" of an institution is cited throughout the statutes governing each institution. Some boards are specifically granted the authority to alter the curriculum as deemed necessary. The review and approval of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV), however, is necessary for the establishment of any new academic programs pursuant to 23-9.6:1. This measure was carried over by the House Education Committee.
