Investment, Performance and Accountability Commitment (IPAC)

With the state’s help, IPAC can be the most comprehensive agreement of its kind, to ensure that Illinois public higher education is both affordable and accessible. The University of Illinois would commitment to the following: to stabilize in-state undergraduate tuition and fees, guarantee to admit a growing number of Illinois residents, maintain high graduations and retention rates, implement the Triple I (Invest in Illinoisans) program to invest $170 million in financial aid for Illinois residents. In return, the state would commit to fund the university at a stable and appropriate amount every year for the next 5 years, while also creating the Illinois Excellence Program to recruit and retain promising faculty.
