(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University faculty are expressing concern over legislative requirements that colleges develop road maps to degree completion and create common curricula and standards to make general education classes transferable.

But the head of IU's board of trustees says faculty need to accept that college standards are changing and adapt to stay ahead of the shift.

The Herald-Times reports that faculty leaders met with trustees Chairman Thomas E. Reilly Jr. recently in Bloomington to discuss whether the moves designed to increase efficiency and on-time graduation will achieve those goals.

Bloomington Faculty Council President Herb Terry says he fears lawmakers are adopting a "one-size-fits-all" approach to higher education.

Reilly says universities have to accept that efficiency is necessary and that the status quo isn't enough.
