J. G. RANDALL DISTINGUISHED PROFESSORSHIP I N HISTORY(6) Under the will of the late Ruth Painter Randall, three-fourths of her residuary estate was to be given to the University of Illinois Foundation for the establishment of " T h e J. G. Randall and Ruth Painter Randall Memorial Fund." T h e income from the fund was to be used to supplement the funds available from the 94 [October 18
BOARD OF TRUSTEESUniversity to pay the salary of a distinguished scholar appointed to a chair known as "The J. G. Randall Distinguished Professorship in History."
Mrs. Randall, herself an historian, stipulated that the appointee to the chair was to be a scholar in the field of American History in which her husband gave distinguished service, "specifically including Lincoln, Civil War, Southern, and Constitutional history."
In order to implement the wishes of Mrs. Randall, a search committee has been appointed and guidelines for the administration of the chair have been developed by the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Those guidelines, as recommended by the Chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus, are as
1. The chair shall be known as "The J. G. Randall Distinguished Professorship in History"; and it shall be offered to a person whose scholarly career is associated with "that field of American History in which my husband [Professor J. G. Randall] gave distinguished service, specifically including Lincoln, Civil War, Southern, and Constitutional history."
2. The professorship will normally be awarded on a "permanent," not a rotating, basis.
3. The professorship may not stand vacant for more than two consecutive academic years.
4. The final recommendation to the Chancellor, President, and Board of Trustees is to be made by the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs on the advice of the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and of the Executive Officer of the Department of History. A search committee is to be appointed by the Dean of the College, after consultation with the principal administrative officer and Executive Committee of the Department of History.
5. The terms of Mrs. Randall's will make it clear that the person holding the chair must receive from University funds at least the minimum salary paid to a full professor of history; the income from the trust is to be paid to the person holding the chair. It is, however, anticipated that each appointee will in practice be offered a fixed salary, to include both anticipated income from the trust and at least a sum equivalent to the minimum salary established by the University for full professors, such sum to be paid from University funds.
6. The University of Illinois Foundation will be requested to underwrite from the endowment, as expenses of administering the trust, charges related to the identification of holders of the chair. These charges would include expenses of a "search" as well as payment of moving expenses if a new appointee is brought to the campus.
7. Policies with respect to the administration of the chair may be changed, within the terms of the bequest by the Chancellor subject to the concurrence of the President after consultation with the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the executive officer of the Department of History.
I concur in these guidelines and recommend approval of the establishment of this professorship.
O n motion of Mr. Swain, this recommendation was approved.
MILITARY OFFICER EDUCATION PROGRAM, CHICAGO CIRCLE(7) At the December 17, 1971, meeting of the Board of Trustees I reported that the ROTC program at the Chicago Circle campus has been _ operated on the basis of a subcontract to the agreement between the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Department of the Army, and that in 1971, the Chicago Circle Senate recommended that a separate contract be negotiated for that campus.
In an effort to strengthen the ROTC program at Chicago Circle, and to bring it closer in line with the recommendations contained in the joint statements on ROTC issued byall of the major national higher education associations, the Chancellor at Chicago Circle recommends that a separate contract be negotiated for ROTC at that campus. He has proposed that the name of the program be changed from Reserve Officer Training Program to Military Officer Education Program. In addition, the head of the unit will be designated as Director of the Military Officer Education Program and the Director of the Program will be a member with full voting rights on the Chicago Circle Committee 1972] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS for Military Officer Education. These and other recommendations eyolved from discussions with appropriate faculty senate committees and University administrators, and after informal consultation with officials in the Department of the Army.
The Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination has reviewed these recommendations and endorses the request that the University now proceed to formal negotiations.
I concur and request authority to proceed to final negotiations and to execute the contract following approval by the Board.
On motion of Mr. Forsyth, authority was given as requested.
AREA HEALTH EDUCATION CENTER CONTRACT, MEDICAL CENTER(8) The University of Illinois, through its College of Medicine, has been awarded a contract by the Bureau of Health Manpower Education, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare for the development of "area health education centers" in selected areas in Illinois.
The contract totals $9,724,026 payable over a five-year period and distributed as follows :,,.
Indirect Overhead Direct Recovery First year $ 789 664 $158 627 Second year 1 014 684 204 831 Third year 2 096 109 422 631 Fourth year 2 096 109 422 631 Fifth year 2 096 109 422 631 Each of the annual amounts shown above, other than for the first year, are subject to the availability of funds from the National Institutes of Health.
The concept of the area health education center was described and recommended by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education in a special report entitled Higher Education and the Nation's Health (October 1970). The concept was incorporated into federal legislation and approved through enactment of the Comprehensive Health Manpower Training Act of 1971.
A major objective to be achieved under the contract is the gradual evolution and growth of the system of education for a broad spectrum of health professions and occupations in the regions of Illinois associated with the University's developing medical schools. The system of education would build on existing resources, talents, and programs and be developed in collaboration with the clinical facilities and educational institutions in the regions. It will provide education for the health manpower required to meet regional needs, particularly in underserved areas.
The specific sites for area health education centers are Peoria (in conjunction with the Peoria School of Medicine), Rockford (in conjunction with the Rockford School of Medicine), Urbana-Champaign (in conjunction with the School of Basic Medical Sciences), and in the Chicago metropolitan area (in conjunction with a group of six hospitals affiliated with the College of Medicine).
Following the organizational period the types of health education programs to be developed under the contract are those of several of the allied health professions, undergraduate nursing, graduate nursing, and family practice.
The President of the University, after consultation with the appropriate administrative officers, recommends acceptance of the award, subject to further action by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
O n motion of M r. Swain, this recommendation was approved.
