SECRETARY'S REPORTThe Secretary presented for record appointments to the faculty made by the President; resignations; declinations and resignations of summer appointments; leaves of absence; retirements. A copy of the report is filed with the Secretary.
The business of the meeting having been completed, on motion of Mr. Swain, the Executive Committee adjourned.
It should be noted that the proposed group will be advisory to the President, it will meet at two specified times annually with the Student Welfare and Activities Committee of the Board, and that procedures for communication with the Board will be developed. This group will relate to the President and to the Board in ways similar to existing relationships with the faculty (through the University Senates Conference) and with nonacademic personnel. The establishment of this group will not require Board action and the Board will not, therefore, be establishing special relationships with students which it has not established with its many other constituencies.
T h e proposal follows:
Purpose: This Committee shall have as its major purpose the provision of continuing and formal liaison among three basic groups: the students of the University of Illinois, the University administration represented by the President of the University, and the Board of Trustees of the University.
In meeting this major purpose, the Committee will be expected t o :
1. Identify and analyze for the President those issues which affect students on a University-wide basis or, similarly, to analyze those issues identified by the Board or by the President as issues which affect students on a University-wide basis.
2. Gather and interpret student attitudes and student concerns on matters related to University-wide policies and procedures.
3. Assist in communicating and interpreting University concerns on matters related to University-wide policies and procedures.
(This Committee shall be involved in University-wide matters and shall not replace student advisory mechanisms developed by the Chancellors to meet similar purposes in dealing with campus concerns. This Committee shall be responsible for developing its own liaison mechanisms with such campus advisory groups.) Membership: This Committee shall consist of twelve members. Members shall
be selected from the various campus constituencies as follows:
Medical Center (3) : 1 graduate student 1 professional student 1 undergraduate student Chicago Circle (4) : 3 undergraduate students 1 graduate student Urbana-Champaign (5) : 2 undergraduate students 2 graduate students 1 professional student While selection processes shall not be mandated by the President, some procedures which would provide for terms of longer than one year for members of the Committee would be desirable.
Procedures: T h e Committee shall meet with the President of the University monthly. T h e Committee shall elect a presiding officer who shall work with the President to prepare the agenda for each monthly meeting. A schedule of meeting dates, places, and times for the year shall be approved at the October meeting each year.
T h e Committee shall meet with the Student Affairs Committee of the Board of Trustees twice annually — in January and in April. During these two months these meetings shall replace the meetings developed by the Chancellors to provide for campus student groups to meet with the President and the Student Affairs Committee of the Board of Trustees.
T h e Committee and the President shall develop procedures for communication between the Committee and the Board of Trustees in addition to the two meetings scheduled each year.
Evaluation: At the conclusion of each academic year, the Committee and the President shall prepare a report to the Board of Trustees reviewing the work of the Committee.
This Committee is established by the President of the University under BOARD OF TRUSTEES [September 20 the authority delegated to the President by the Board of Trustees. The general intent is not to seek Board approval of the mechanics of the operation of the Committee and it would be assumed that changes in structure and procedure could be accomplished by joint agreement of the Committee and the President.
Report Concerning the Operation of the Conduct Control Systems on the Campuses of the University of Illinois, 1971-72 In accord with the action of the Board of Trustees on January 19, 1972, the President submitted in advance of the meeting an annual report concerning the operations of the conduct control system during the preceding academic year. (The report was summarized by the President.) A copy is filed with the Secretary for record.
Illinois Educational Consortium for Computer Services President Corbally also spoke briefly concerning the establishment and incorporation of the Illinois Educational Consortium for Computer Services.
A N N U A L OPERATING BUDGET FOR 1 9 7 2 - 7 3 (1) The budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1972, is submitted herewith, including recommendations for: (a) academic and administrative appointments beginning September 1, 1972, with salary increases effective November 1, 1972; and (b) appointments to the nonacademic personnel staff beginning July 1, 1972, with salary increases effective September 1, 1972. Authorization to pay salaries and wages for nonacademic and academic personnel for the month of July and subsequent payrolls prior to this action was granted by the Board of Trustees on July 19, 1972.
The funds appropriated by the Seventy-seventh General Assembly to the University of Illinois for all purposes for FY 1973 are summarized, with comparative figures for FY 1972.
The budget has been prepared by the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Vice President and Comptroller, based upon recommendations of: (a) the chancellors at the three campuses (after consultation with their respective deans, directors, and other campus administrative officers); (b) general University officers concerning the budget for University-wide offices; and (c) the President of the University. The allocation of funds follows general policies and assignments recommended by the University Budget Committee1 during the preparation of the University's FY 1973 budget.
Submitted herewith is the budget document3 containing: (a) a Condensed Analysis, which outlines the income anticipated for fiscal year 1973 and describes the changes in the budget; (b) Schedules A through I, which contain summaries of income and appropriations for the entire University and budget totals by major categories for each campus; and (c) summaries for each college or other major administrative unit. Also submitted are four supplemental volumes (two for Urbana-Champaign and General University Units, and one each for the other two campuses) presenting budget details for departments, divisions, and other operating units.
As previously reported to the Board of Trustees, the necessity of providing faculty salary increases equivalent to those provided other staff and administrative employees and some uncertainties regarding income estimates led to the imposition of a partial "freeze" on new appointments to the University payrolls. This partial "freeze" continues under the direction of the Vice President for Planning and Allocation working in concert with the chancellors.
I recommend that this budget, covering the allocation of the estimated operating income from all sources for the year beginning July 1, 1972, be approved by the Board, and that the President of the University be authorized in accordance with the needs of the University and the equitable interests involved, and within total income as it accrues: (a) to accept resignations; (b) to make such additional
