DEATH OF SENATOR EVERETT R. PETERSMr. Hughes took note of the death on June 25 of Senator Everett R. Peters, "a great and true friend of the University throughout his entire fifty years of public service in Champaign County and in both houses of the State Legislature." Mr. Hughes stated that he was appointing a committee, composed of Trustees Swain and Steger, to draft an appropriate tribute to Senator Peters to be presented to the Trustees at the September meeting. On motion of Mr. Swain, the Trustees concurred in the sentiments expressed and in the action to be taken.
RESOLUTIONS IN RECOGNITION OF T H E RETIREMENT
OF MISS KATHRYN HANSEN. LYLE H. LANIER.
AND NORMAN A. PARKER
To Kathryn G. Hansen In 1952 Kathryn G. Hansen left the staff of the University of Illinois, where she had worked several years, to become the first Executive Secretary of the University Civil Service System of Illinois. She was later made Administrative Officer of the System and Secretary of the Merit Board and, in October 1968, was appointed Director of the System. She retired from the latter position July 1, 1972.
In the course of her career, she has been active in numerous business and professional organizations, including the College and University Personnel Association, which she served as President in 1967-68; the American Society for Public Administration; the American Management Association; the American Society for Personnel Administration; and many others.
It is, however, for her career of service to the University Civil Service System of Illinois for which the Trustees now convey their appreciation and best wishes for the future.
To Lyle H. Lanier Over more than twenty years, Lyle H. Lanier has served the University of Illinois in important administrative positions. For the last twelve of those years, he was the Executive Vice President and Provost. In that position he was the senior officer under the President and the University's chief academic officer.
The years of his service have seen great growth and lately a slowed pace, each phase containing its own problems. The University's capacity to face the challenges presented has been heavily dependent upon the talents of Lyle Lanier.
His skills in analysis, planning, and innovation, when combined with a seemingly limitless capacity for hard work, have kept the University a center of scholarship and service. Of special note has been his leadership in developing the imaginative and far-reaching plan for medical education for the University, and indeed for the State.
Although his role has not always been obvious to those outside the University, his colleagues and the Trustees know and value his counsel as an educator, a craftsman, and a statesman.
The Trustees convey to Lyle H. Lanier their deep gratitude for his dedication, leadership, and service to the tradition of excellence at the University of Illinois.
To Norman A. Parker Early in his career in education Norman A. Parker assumed administrative duties as the Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Colorado. For more than thirty years at Colorado and at the University of Illinois he has combined his abilities as educator and administrator in addition to serving as engineer and consultant to many companies. His professional colleagues have honored him with selection as a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and his alma mater, the University of Colorado, has bestowed upon him an honorary degree of Doctor of Science.
To the University of Illinois, however, Norman Parker's outstanding contribution to the development of the Chicago Circle campus is of first importance.
UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOISNot limiting his efforts only to administration, he assumed leadership in developing a community-University rapport which has shown the neighbors of the University that it has concern for them.
For his educational and community leadership and his commitment to the objectives of the University of Illinois, the Trustees convey to Norman A. Parker their deep appreciation.
BUSINESS PRESENTED BY T H E PRESIDENT OF T H E UNIVERSITYThe Board considered the following reports and recommendations from the President of the University.
PRESIDENT'S REPORTPresident Corbally presented a report on selected topics of current interest, copies of which were distributed at the meeting, and a copy was filed with the Secretary of the Board.
INTERIM INTERNAL BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR ( F Y ) 1973 (1) The Governor has signed without change the University's appropriation bill for FY 1973 (House Bill 4215) as enacted by the Seventy-seventh General Assembly. Since final legislative action on the bill did not occur until June 30, however, and since important changes in the bill were made on that day, it has not been possible to complete the FY 1973 budget for operations for presentation to the Board at this meeting. In fact, in view of the extensive revisions that will be required, it is now anticipated that the budget cannot be completed in time for action by the Board before September.
It becomes necessary, therefore, to request that the Board authorize the continuation of the FY 1972 budget as it existed on June 30, 1972 — with further authorization to the President, in accordance with the needs of the University and the equitable interests involved, and within the total income available: (a) to accept resignations; (b) to make such additional appointments as are necessary subject to the provisions of the University Statutes and the Policy and Rules — Nonacademic; and (c) to make such changes and adjustments in items included in the interim budget as are needed. All such changes are to be covered in the Vice President and Comptroller's quarterly financial reports, or in reports to the Board by its Secretary. Furthermore, they will be reflected in the detailed budget for 1972-73 to be submitted to the Board on September 20, 1972.
The Trustees are also asked to affirm that the authorization described above is not intended to authorize and direct the reappointment of individuals whose appointments were due to terminate prior to September 1, 1972 (whether by retirement, resignation, notice of terminal appointment, expiration of temporary appointment, or other applicable condition).
On motion of Mr. Howard, authority was given as requested by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr.
Hughes, Mr. Karnes, Mr. Pogue, Mr. Swain; no, none; absent, Dr.
Bakalis, Mr. Neal, Governor Ogilvie, Mr. Steger.
In presenting this recommendation, the President reviewed the final action of the legislature and its significance for the University in the new fiscal year. (A summary of his remarks is presented below.) There has been some confusion in the reports of the final actions of the Illinois General Assembly with regard to House Bill 4215 (the appropriation bill for the University of Illinois for 1972-73). The General Assembly approved increases in House Bill 4215 totaling $7,163,788. The original total for operations was increased from $189,411,681 to $196,575,469. The following is an analysis of the
1. Retirement contributions $3 000 000
2. Personal services (nonacademic salary increases and funds for physical plant operations and maintenance personnel) 3 541 126
3. Division of Services for Crippled Children 587 000 4 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [Juty 19
4. Natural History Survey Research Ponds (operations and maintenance costs), -. 6 376
5. Exercise Therapy Clinic (College of Physical Education, UrbanaChampaign) 29 286 $7 163 788 The addition for retirement contributions represents, in effect, a technical assignment of funds to the University of Illinois to provide sufficient funds to meet the expected obligations of the State Universities Retirement System to staff members of the University who will be retiring during the present fiscal year.
The increase in the personal services item of House Bill 4215 totaling $3,541,126 would be used for the following purposes, in accordance with agreements reached among members of the General Assembly concerning this increase:
1. The level of employment of physical plant operations and maintenance personnel existing on June 30, 1972, would be maintained throughout the fiscal year 1972-73, except in areas subject to seasonal layoffs or in situations where such retention of employees would be contrary to state law or otherwise in conflict with sound public policy.
2. All employees presently paid under prevailing-wage agreements would receive increases in accordance with the terms specified in the renewal of such agreements. This procedure would conform to past practice, and the rates would be in accordance with state statutes and regulations.
3. Additional funds would be allocated sufficient to provide increases averaging
5.5 per cent to employees who are paid under negotiated-rate contracts — the increases to become effective upon the date specified in the renewal of such contracts.
4. Additional funds would be allocated sufficient to provide increases averaging
5.5 per cent for all other nonacademic employees, effective September 1, 1972.
