Pact Between EIU, Richland to Benefit Nursing Students


Representatives of Eastern Illinois University and Richland Community College signed a 2+2 Transfer Agreement at a recent meeting of the Community College Presidents Advisory Committee, held on the EIU campus.

Present for the signing were Gayle Saunders, president, and Jane Johnson, vice president for student and academic services, representing Richland; and Lou Hencken, president, and Blair Lord, provost and vice president of academic affairs, from EIU.

The transfer agreement will further improve the transfer process for Richland students who complete an associate’s degree in nursing and then transfer to EIU to complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

The Community College Presidents Advisory Committee, first convened in 2002, is comprised of presidents from community colleges that are regionally close to Eastern or have a large number of transfer students enrolled.

Discussions at committee meetings enhance the articulation of programs and services, identify areas for partnerships and cooperative planning and programming, and explore ideas to efficiently and effectively meet the educational needs of residents and students of the community colleges districts and the state of Illinois.
