The University of Illinois board will this week consider a plan to scale back the system's new online campus, which has been controversial from the start, amid disappointing enrollment results, the Chicago Tribune reported. The campus was designed to be largely free-standing, prompting complaints from professors about insufficient ties to academic departments. Faculty groups also charged that administrators had unrealistic expectations about enrollment. The Tribune reported that the campus was supposed to have thousands of students at this point, but enrolls only 426.
