    (110 ILCS 947/15)
    Sec. 15. Illinois Student Assistance Commission.
    (a) There is established the Illinois Student Assistance
Commission, consisting of 10 persons to be appointed by the
Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. The
membership of the Commission shall consist of one
representative of the institutions of higher learning operated
by the State; one representative of the private institutions
of higher learning located in the State; one representative of
the public community colleges located in the State; one
representative of the public high schools located in the
State; 5 citizens of the State chosen for their knowledge of
and interest in higher education, but not employed by,
professionally affiliated with, or members of the governing
boards of any institution of higher learning located in the
State, and one student member selected from nominations
submitted to the Governor by multi-campus student
organizations, including but not limited to, the recognized
advisory committee of students of the Illinois Community
College Board, the recognized advisory committee of students
of the Board of Higher Education, and the recognized advisory
committee of students of the Federation of Independent
Illinois Colleges and Universities. The Governor shall
designate one member, other than the student member, as
chairman. Each member of the Commission, including the student
member, shall serve without compensation, but shall be
reimbursed for expenses necessarily incurred in performing the
member's his or her duties under this Act. Subject to a
requirement that Commission members in office on the effective
date of this amendatory Act of 1995 may serve the full term to
which they were appointed, the appointment of Commission
members to terms that commence on or after that effective date
shall be made in a manner that gives effect at the earliest
possible time to the change that is required by this
amendatory Act in the representative composition of the
Commission's membership.
    (b) The term of office of each member, other than the
student member, is 6 years from July 1 of the year of
appointment, and until the member's his successor is appointed
and qualified. If a member's tenure of office, other than that
of the student member, is terminated for any reason before the
member's his or her term has expired, the Governor shall fill
the vacancy by the appointment of a person who has the same
representative status as the person whose term has been so
terminated, and the new appointee shall hold office only for
the remainder of that term and until a successor is appointed
and qualified. The term of the student member shall be for 2
years from July 1 of each odd-numbered year and until a
successor is appointed and qualified. If the tenure of the
student member is terminated for any reason, the vacancy shall
be filled in the same manner as heretofore provided for a
regular term of office appointment of the student member. The
new student appointee shall hold office only for the remainder
of that term and until a successor is appointed and qualified.
A student appointee's status on the Commission may not be
considered in determining the student appointee's his or her
eligibility for programs administered by the Commission.
    (c) In accordance with the provisions of the State
Universities Civil Service Act, the Commission shall employ a
professionally qualified person as the Executive Director of
the Commission, and such other employees as may be necessary
to effectuate the purposes of this Act.
    (d) The Commission shall meet at least once in each fiscal
year, and may meet at other times which the Chairman may
designate by giving at least 10 days' written notice to each
member.
