Restructuring the unit, with a dean as chief executive officer, will enhance the development of knowledge and service in health, physical education, and recreation. The combination of the present Divisions of Physical Education for Men and Physical Education for Women into a single Department will facilitate the best possible utilization of men and women faculty in a cooperative venture wherein faculty merit is judged on the basis of academic excellence relating directly to the major area of responsibility. The inclusion of intercollegiate athletics as a separate division within the new College is consistent with the premise that athletics contribute to e.ducational and physical educational objectives.

The College will continue to offer work in recreation education and in health education, which is required in all secondary schools. At a later date a proposal for the establishment of appropriate departments of instruction will be forwarded; the change in name is intended to reflect more accurately the range of activities in which the unit is now involved.

The generic scope of the College of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation is concerned with human physical ecology—the mutual physical relations between human beings and their environment. Physical education, health, and recreation represent a triad of knowledge which has as its collective focus healthful living in the dimensions of fact and form.

The Chancellor at Chicago Circle and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination recommend approval. The University Senates Conference has advised that no further Senate jurisdiction is involved.

I concur, subject to further action by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.

On motion of Mr. Steger, this recommendation was approved.



(14) Statutory tuition waivers are now limited to four years, except for those who obtain leaves of absence as a result of applications made before leaving the University. Leaves can be granted because of illness, military service, or for the purpose of earning funds to defray educational expenses.

1974] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS Board of Trustees action on July 14, 1924, and April 24, 1926, established the requirement that students holding statutory tuition waivers and wishing to obtain leaves of absence would be required to present the equivalent of a C average "exclusive of grades in Military Science and Physical Education." This policy, which is not required by law and is not followed in the case of other public universities in the state, has been found to work a severe hardship on some students — especially veterans — who may encounter academic difficulties, withdraw from the University temporarily, and then find their eligibility for the tuition waiver being "used up" prior to their return.

The faculty committees and administrative officers concerned at the UrbanaChampaign, Chicago Circle, and Medical Center campuses all recommend the removal of the present requirement that the equivalent of a C average be presented in order to obtain a tuition waiver "leave of absence."

I concur.

On motion of Mr. Steger, this recommendation was approved.




(15) The Board of Trustees at its July 1973 meeting authorized the Chancellor at the Chicago Circle campus to1 increase the limit on spaces reserved for applicants with different qualifications for special and experimental programs, from 10 to a maximum of 12 per cent — as space is available — of the previous fall-term entering freshman class. The Chicago Circle Senate on February 11, 1974, approved a recommendation of the Committee on Student Admissions, Records, and College Relations to continue the limit up to 12 per cent for 1974-75 and indefinitely thereafter. The University Committee on Admissions at its meeting on February 21, 1974, also approved this recommendation.

It is proposed that the limit of up to 12 per cent instituted by the Board of Trustees on July 18, 1973, be continued for the 1974-75 academic year.

I concur.

On motion of Mr. Howard, this recommendation was approved.



(16) On July 26, 1967, the Board of Trustees approved the action of the UrbanaChampaign Senate to establish a pass/fail grading system to be effective beginning February, 1968. The pass/fail system was instituted "... to encourage students to explore areas of interest which they might otherwise feel compelled to pass over because exploration might lead to poor grades."

The option was approved with the stipulation that it was to be reviewed and evaluated after eight semesters of operation to decide on its continuance, modification, or discontinuance. An extensive review began in the 1972-73 academic year and culminated with a report of May 6, 1974, to the Senate by the Senate Educational Policy Committee. As a result of the action taken on that report,

the Urbana-Champaign Senate recommended that the pass/fail system be continued with the following substantive changes in the present policy:

Different from the following high school rank and test score criteria approved by the

Board of Trustees on April 15, 1970:

1. Applicants approved for admission to regular programs must have at least a one-in-two (50 per cent) chance of achieving a 3.0 (C) average for the first term in the college or curriculum to which they apply.

2. To provide the flexibility that may be needed on a temporary basis, applicants whose chances for success range from one-in-four (minimally qualified under present standards) to one-intwo (minimally qualified under recommended standards) may be approved for admission to a

curriculum or college under the following circumstances:

a. The curriculum or college would not fully utilize available resources of space, staff, and/ or facilities unless such applicants were admitted.

b. Provision is made by the department or college concerned designed to help such applicants improve their chances for success.

c. Special funds are provided where added expenses are involved in making such provision.


1. A minimum grade of C must be earned to receive credit under the option. This option may not be exercised in courses used to satisfy the University's general education requirements, or in courses specifically required by the student's college for graduation, or in courses specifically designated by the curriculum as satisfying the student's major or field of concentration; also, it may not be used for a fourth semester foreign language course when taken to fulfill the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences graduation requirement.

2. Part-time students are eligible to participate in this option, taking a maximum of one course in any one semester.

3. Full-time students are permitted to take a maximum of two courses in any one semester under the option.

4. The revised option will be designated the credit/no credit grading option to become effective in the fall 1974, or as soon thereafter as possible, with the current regulations continuing until that time.

Due to the nature of the changes and the date at which the changes were presented for approval, the Chancellor atUrbana-Champaign recommends that the earliest possible date for implementation of the revisions be January 1975.

The Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concurs in the recommendation. The Executive Committee of the University Senates Conference has advised that no other Senate jurisdiction is involved.

I recommend approval.

In the discussion of this recommendation, it was understood that the administration would prepare a full evaluative report of pass/fail options on a University-wide basis at the end of a two-year period ending March 20, 1976.

On motion of Mr. Howard, this recommendation was approved.



(17) The Board of Higher Education report, Education in the Health Fields for State of Illinois (June 1968), recommended that the College of Medicine expand its program of medical education by use of existing clinical facilities in regions throughout the state of Illinois. On July 22, 1970, the Board of Trustees approved the establishment of the School of Basic Medical Sciences at Urbana.

On April 21, 1971, the Trustees authorized the execution of affiliation agreements with Burnham City Hospital in Champaign; Carle Foundation Hospital and Mercy Hospital in Urbana; and the United States Veterans Administration Hospital in Danville — and agreements were executed with these institutions.

Sixteen medical students were enrolled in the School of Basic Medical Sciences at Urbana in the fall of 1971, and the hospitals listed above were used by these students for part of their educational experience.

On September 20, 1972, the Board authorized the execution of affiliation agreements with nine additional hospitals (St. Joseph Hospital and Mennonite Hospital in Bloomington; Charleston Community Memorial Hospital in Charleston ; Lake View Memorial Hospital and St. Elizabeth Hospital in Danville;

Decatur Memorial Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital in Decatur; Mattoon Memorial Hospital in Mattoon; Brokaw Hospital in Normal) to accommodate the educational program of the School with its increased enrollment of sixteen additional students for the fall of 1972.

To further implement the recommendations of the Board of Higher Education with respect to the use of existing clinical facilities and to provide new resources for_ the increased number of medical students (thirty-two additional students) anticipated for the fall of 1974, the Dean of the School of Basic Medical Sciences at Urbana and the Executive Dean of the College of Medicine have recommended that authorization be granted to execute affiliation agreements with John Warner Hospital in Clinton; Gibson Community Hospital in Gibson City; Hoopeston Community Memorial Hospital in Hoopeston; The John and Mary E. Kirby Hospital in Monticello; Paris Community Hospital in Paris;

Paxton Community Hospital in Paxton; St. James Hospital in Pontiac; Shelby County Memorial Hospital in Shelbyville; Jarman Memorial Hospital in Tuscola; and The Iroquois Memorial Hospital in Watseka.

1974] 589


These affiliation agreements will provide a broader base for the support for the medical education program of the School and will also permit planning for residency training programs in several hospitals in central Illinois.

The Chancellor at the Medical Center campus and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur in this recommendation.

I recommend approval.

On motion of Mr. Livingston, this recommendation was approved.



(18) On July 21, 1971, the Board of Trustees authorized the President to negotiate a contract with the Spertus College of Judaica for a cooperative program in Judaic studies. Under this agreement, a wide range of courses in Judaic studies offered by Spertus College of Judaica became available to students at the Chicago Circle campus. The contract provided for the University to reimburse Spertus College of Judaica at the rate of $8.50 per quarter credit hour per student, subject to a maximum payment of $11,000 per academic year.

_ Because of increased costs, the Spertus College of Judaica has asked the University to renegotiate the contract. Accordingly, the President with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers recommends that authorization be granted by the Board for negotiation of a new contract with the Spertus College of Judaica. The new contract would reimburse Spertus College at the rate of $9.50 per quarter credit hour per student, without fixing a maximum payment.

(It is estimated that such reimbursement will amount to approximately $15,000 per year.) In return, the Spertus College of Judaica will not only continue to offer its wide range of courses in Judaic studies, but also additional courses in related areas such as Arabic not currently available to students at Chicago Circle. The new contract will also provide an option for renewal of the arrangement from year to year, subject to the right of either party to terminate it at any time upon three months written notice—-with the provision for continuation following any such termination on a limited basis to assure that students enrolled in the Judaic studies program will be able to complete their work.

Funds for the support of the program are available in the budget of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences on the Chicago Circle campus.

On motion of Mr. Forsyth, this contract was awarded by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr.

Livingston, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Steger; no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr.

Neal, Mr. Swain, Governor Walker.

This is accomplished by making a measurement of the water sample’s absorbance at 275 nm, a wavelength that the...»
