[s17] Sen. Banks: Senate Approves Bill to Study Regional Campuses

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (April 24, 2013) — A bill authored by State Sen. Jim Banks (R-Columbia City) to study regional college campuses in Indiana cleared the Senate’s final passage today. It now goes to the House of Representatives for approval before moving to the governor’s desk for final review.


Senate Bill 98 establishes the Commission on Education Interim Study Committee, which will review topics related to the governance and operation of regional campuses. This includes Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne’s management, growth and needs as related to its parent schools. Following review, the commission will present its findings to the legislative council.


“The structure of our regional campuses makes them unique from our other college and universities,” Banks said. “Not only do they serve different types of students, but they also are subject to different rules and regulations. As these schools continue to grow, it’s necessary to evaluate whether these regulations are still appropriate for their campuses and students. That idea will guide the commission’s work as it meets over the interim.”


Indiana currently has nine regional campuses, which serve approximately 77,600 students.


Rep. Kathy Heuer (R-Columbia City) is the bill’s sponsor in the House of Representatives.
