The board changed its name officially to the Board of Governors of the State Colleges and Universities of the State of Illinois on July 15th, 1965. There was a new addition to the colleges represented on this board: the Illinois Teacher's College-Chicago. The first meeting of the board recognized the untimely passing of Adlai Stevenson, who, while governor, convened the previous college board. This short-lived board will change its name in 1967 to the Board of Regents of the State of Illinois.
