The University regrets that no funds were appropriated by the General Assembly for additional increases in the salaries of academic staff members. After consultation with the general-University officers concerned and with the chancellors, I am prepared to recommend to the Board of Trustees that sufficient funds be accumulated through further internal savings to permit increases in academic salaries averaging 5.5 per cent for eligible staff members, effective November 1,
1972. This increase would create a condition of substantial parity in the increases for nonacademic and for academic staff members — in the sense that the effective dates for their respective rate increases would be delayed in each case two months beyond the dates on which salary increases traditionally have become effective.
Obviously, the implementation of the foregoing plans is subject to the approval of House Bill 4215 by the Governor, without reduction in the amounts appropriated by the General Assembly.
Many members of the General Assembly and representatives of the Governor's office and of the Bureau of the Budget were of great assistance in reviewing the needs of the University of Illinois and in responding to those needs. Representative Clabaugh and Senator Weaver provided the floor leadership for House Bill 4215.
In his last few months of active service, Dr. Lyle Lanier was particularly effective in providing the General Assembly with information and in providing the University of Illinois with his fine representation.
BUDGET REQUEST FOR CAPITAL F U N D S. FISCAL YEAR 1 9 7 4(2) The recommendations of the University Building Program Committee1 for capital improvements in FY 1974 at all three campuses are submitted in the attached document. (This document is filed with the Secretary of the Board of Trustees.) Detailed supporting information will be compiled during the remainder of this month and submitted to the Office of the Board of Higher Education by August 14, 1972, in accordance with the schedule established by that office.
University Building Program Committee: Lyle H. Lanier, Executive Vice President and Provost, Chairman; Harlan D. Bareither, Director of University Office of Space Programming (staff consultant); Joseph S. Begando, Chancellor at the Medical Center; Donald J. Caseley, Vice Chancellor at the Medical Center; H. O. Farber, Vice President and Comptroller; V. L.
Kretschmer, Acting University Director of Physical Plant Planning and Construction (staff consultant); Warren B. Cheston, Chancellor at Chicago Circle; Jack W. Peltason, Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign; William F. Sager, Professor of Chemistry and Head of the Department, Chicago Circle; Lucien W. White, Professor of Library Administration and University Librarian.
1972] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS The University's FY 1974 request for capital appropriations reflects three main types of needs: (a) funds to meet the supplemental costs of equipping and occupying new buildings already authorized (including buildings completed but not fully equipped); (b) funds for the improvement of existing facilities (rehabilitation and remodeling, utilities, site improvements, etc.); (c) new building projects needed to meet the enrollment and program expansion scheduled to occur by the fall of 1976.
More than half of the total request of $49,201,400 is for buildings and other capital improvements in the health fields ($26,162,700), including building projects at the Medical Center, Peoria, and Rockford. The new building projects at the other two campuses have all been approved previously by the Board of Higher Education.
I recommend approval of the enclosed budget request for capital funds for FY 1974 (see tables printed below) and request authorization to transmit the request to appropriate offices of State government and to the Board of Higher Education— in the format and with the supporting information prescribed by the Office of the Board of Higher Education.
On motion of Mr. Swain, this recommendation was approved and 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.
