TRANSFER OF ADMINISTRATIVE JURISDICTION OF T H E COMPUTERBASED EDUCATION RESEARCH LABORATORY, URBANA(7) The Director of the Computer-based Education Research Laboratory has recommended to the Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign the transfer of the Laboratory, now a special unit of the Graduate College, to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs effective February 1, 1973.
The Computer-based Education Research Laboratory was established in July 1966 as a special unit in the Graduate College and has remained a part of that college during the technological development of the PLATO system. That development has been largely completed, and the Laboratory is now considered a unit relevant to the entire educational mission of the campus, not just to the graduate segment.
The Urbana-Champaign Senate Committee on General Policy concurred in the transfer and determined that, since no substantial change in educational policy would occur, full Senate approval was not required. The Executive Committee of the Graduate College, the Research Board, the Acting Dean and former Dean of the Graduate College support the transfer. The Chancellor and Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur.
I recommend approval.
On motion of Mr. Hahn, this recommendation was approved.
CHANGE IN HOUSING REGULATIONS FOR UNDERGRADUATES T U D E N T S, URBANA (8) At the Urbana-Champaign campus, the University presently requires all single undergraduate men and women with less than seventy-five hours of academic credit or under twenty-one years of age as of September 1 of any particular academic year to live in housing certified by the University for the entire academic year. This regulation, modified from that of previous years, was approved by the Board of Trustees in March 1972. After extensive study, and with concurrence of the Director of the Housing Division and the Vice Chancellor for Campus Affairs, the Chancellor has recommended that the following policy be adopted for the Urbana-Champaign campus effective August 1973.
All single undergraduate men and women who will be twenty-one years of age or who have achieved junior status (sixty semester hours of academic credit) by August IS of the academic year may elect to live in housing of their choice. All other single undergraduate students must reside in certified housing for the entire academic year unless specific permission is granted by the Vice Chancellor for Campus Affairs.
On motion of Mr. Howard, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr.
Neal, Mr. Pogue; no, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Governor Walker.
MEMORANDA OF U N D E R S T A N D I N G INVOLVING COMPUTER-BASED
EDUCATION PROGRAMS RELATING TO THE PLATO IV SYSTEM.
URBANA (9) The Computer-based Education Research Laboratory (CERL) on the UrbanaChampaign campus is currently implementing a national demonstration and evaluation of the PLATO IV comouter-based education system under a costsharing contract with the National Science Foundation.
152 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [January 17 On July 21, 1971, the Board of Trustees authorized the execution of a Memorandum of Understanding with each of the cooperating institutions taking part in the PLATO IV Demonstration Program, describing the principal features of the cooperative effort and delineating the responsibilities to be assumed by the respective institutions. The Board action included a statement of five broad conditions for the cooperative programs.
As a consequence of certain changes in projected communications costs and pursuant to clarification of the licensing arrangements with cooperative programs covered by the NSF cost-sharing contract, it is desirable at this time to modify Item 3 and to add Item 6 to the list of conditions. These changes are listed and explained below. (The changes are underscored.) Item 3.
The institution in question will supply the required physical facilities for installation, testing, and operation of the student consoles and will seek funds to cover the communications costs. However, the Memorandum of Understanding may specify a maximum annual expenditure for communications by the cooperating institution. Under conditions in which this maximum annual expenditure is less than the total communications cost. CERL will assume the responsibility for seeking the necessary additional grant funds.
Explanatory note. When appropriate, a maximum limit on the annual financial commitment to the support of communications should be specified for_ individual participating institutions in order to carry out the program without unduly burdening the cooperating institution. In the case of certain cooperative programs currently under negotiation, the annual unit cost of communications substantially exceeds the initial cost estimates on which the budgetary commitments were based. Reasons for the increased costs are that (a) the initial PLATO IV installations will involve fewer consoles than origina]ly planned and hence a different rate structure applies, and (b) the commercial tariff structure, even for large-scale installations, may be expected to increase as a result of recent rate modifications.
For example, the cost of communications using standard telephone service to the installation at Chicago will be approximately $100 per month per console. Hence for the sixty consoles scheduled for installation at the Chicago City Colleges as part of the PLATO Demonstration Program, the annual cost of communications would be approximately $72,000, or about twice the $35,000 budgeted by the Chicago City Colleges. On the other hand, the differential cost for Parkland Community College would be less than $10,000.
Item 6. Copyrights to Lesson MaterialsAll copyrightable materials developed under the Demonstration Program.
whether or not copyrighted, shall be the property of the University of Illinois. If lesson materials are developed by or in collaboration with cooperating institutions, the net proceeds (after payment of costs) to the University resulting from licensing agreements for the commercial distribution of such copyrighted materials will be shared on an equity basis between the University and the cooperating institution; i.e.. in proportion to investments in personnel. equipment, and/or other expenses incurred by the respective institutions in the development of such lesson materials] ~~ ~~ Explanatory note. The above arrangement for sharing net proceeds from licensing agreements covering copyrighted lesson materials results from a unique and highly significant feature of the PLATO IV system that permits authors at any location and at any student console to write lesson materials. As a result, a significant portion of the lesson materials developed during the Demonstration Program will be written by or in collaboration with staff members of cooperating institutions.
The Chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus recommends that, subject to the availability of funds, authorization be granted for_ the execution of a Memorandum of Understanding containing the above additional provisions with each of the cooperating institutions.

O n motion of Mr. Swain, authority was granted as recommended.
CONTRACT FOR DEMOLITION OF RACINE A V E N U E B U I L D I N G.
CHICAGO CIRCLE(10) The President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends award of a contract in the amount of $128,900 to National Wrecking Company, Chicago, the low bidder, for demolition including site clearance and grading of the Racine Avenue Building at the Chicago Circle campus.
Funds are available in the General University budget and have been allocated to this project.
(In 1966 the University entered into a contract with the City of Chicago and a federal agency transferring certain land to the University. The contract provided in part for the University to use an existing structure on this land, the Racine Avenue Building, until September 1972, at which time the University would discontinue its use of the building and be responsible for the razing of the structure. At the request of the University, the City granted the University a oneyear extension to demolish the building and clear the site. Requests by the University to use the building beyond that date have been denied.
(On December 19, 1972, the following bids for this project were received:
