Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (April 15, 2013)State Sen. Jim Banks’ (R-Columbia City) legislation to increase transparency in higher education cleared its final passage in the Senate today. Senate Bill 180 now moves to Gov. Mike Pence’s desk for signature.

SB 180 requires each university to prepare and publish a report on its grading and employment practices. Information in this report would include employee salaries, faculty responsibilities and student grade point averages. The Commission for Higher Education (CHE) would then compile this data into a public annual report to the General Assembly for review.

The bill also tasks the CHE with analyzing state universities’ expenses for 2012 and 2013.

“Transparency is key to reducing administrative red tape and the price of higher education,” Banks said. “Creating a more accountable system will allow students and state officials to have the information necessary to make sure our state universities are operating efficiently. Few other states have addressed this issue the way Indiana will through this legislation, which I believe sets a standard for higher education transparency.”
