University Academic Programs and Services
University Academic Programs and Services (UAPS) is an administrative unit providing staff support to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Its primary responsibilities pertain to maintaining a liaison role with the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE), particularly in the areas of academic program matters, and IBHE grant processing.
The office staff advises academic units and the offices of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs on the three campuses in the development of new programs for presentation to the Board of Trustees and the Illinois Board of Higher Education. The office coordinates and advises campus units in other submissions to the IBHE, including annual program reviews, statewide surveys, grant proposals, performance/results reports and student assessment.
