The Young Men's Christian Association at the University of Illinois, UrbanaChampaign, organized in February 1873, is the oldest continuing student organization on the campus.
Just as the University of Illinois participated in its early organization and made significant contributions to its housing facilities and leadership, in turn, the pioneerThe text of the resolution appears in the minutes of the December 20, 1973, meeting.
1973] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 183 ing efforts of the association led to significant contributions of services and programs at the University, for example, in such areas as student employment, freshman orientation and student housing referral, some of which later were adapted or adopted by the University.
The YMCA, with the theme "A Century of Service: Faith for the Future," continues to serve today as an instrument for involving students, faculty, and members of the community in a continuing search for values and meaning through a wide variety of programs and services.
Therefore, the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois recognizes and applauds the contributions of the YMCA to the lives of students and faculty at the University of Illinois, and to the people of Urbana-Champaign, and wishes for it continued success as it begins its second century of service.
RECESS The Board agreed to recess for ten minutes to permit the taking of photographs.
When the Board reconvened, President Hughes recognized Mr.
Oscar Smith, University Director of Nonacademic Personnel, noting that Mr. Smith will retire April 1, and expressed appreciation for his service to the University.
BUSINESS PRESENTED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITYThe Board considered the following reports and recommendations from the President of the University.
PRESIDENT'S REPORTSPresident Corbally presented a report on selected topics of current interest, copies of which were distributed at the meeting, and a copy was filed with the Secretary of the Board.
University Budget With regard to the federal budget situation, President Corbally distributed and commented upon a report prepared by Vice President Johnson which analyzes the effect of current federal budget proposals on the University of Illinois for the next fiscal year. He emphasized that the cumulative effect in the oneyear period could be reduction in federal support for the University of approximately 9,000,000 dollars.
With regard to procedures at the State level for annual appropriations, President Corbally noted that the Governor's budget message, while specific regarding an overall reduced figure, is not specific regarding the impact on the individual institutions. He reported that the Board of Higher Education had been asked to review this general question at its meeting on April 3 and that University officers have appeared before various legislative committees and task forces to express the University's needs. He said that he and others would continue to support vigorously the University's request as submitted to the Board of Higher Education in December, noting that at the moment there was little certainty regarding the meaning of the overall dollar figures being discussed.
Progress Report, Extension Reorganization
The President presented the following report as a matter of information:
In the course of University reorganization, the Division of University Extension has remained an operating function at the general University level, headed by an executive officer still bearing the title of "dean." To bring that function into conformity with the evolving University organization as a system, and to fix responsibility for continuing education closer to the faculty, two objectives are
1. Redistribution of the Division of University Extension functions so as to (a) provide for decentralization of certain operations to the campuses and (b) assure system-wide policy setting, evaluation, and coordination;
2. While so doing, to strengthen the total public service function in the University of Illinois.
184 [March 21
BOARD OF TRUSTEESIt is proposed, therefore, that
1. Each campus provide an appropriate and clearly identifiable campus-wu'e framework of structure and responsibilities for the discharge of the cot tinuing education and/or public service functions, with a. Executive responsibility delegated by the Chancellor to an officer who will give leadership to the function and represent the campus in professional-technical relations with his counterparts on the other campuses and with the Office of the Vice President for Governmental Relations and Public Service;
b. The designation of an officer in each appropriate college or administrative unit (e.g., an Assistant or Associate Dean) who will give leadership to that unit's counterpart of the function organized in "a" above;
c. Systematic means of coordinating the activities represented by "a" and "b" above and of facilitating faculty involvement in policy and planning
2. Effective July 1, 1973, University-wide machinery be provided for recommending policy to the President, coordinating all relations involving a field
staff, and facilitating and evaluating all public service activities for University-wide purposes, as follows:
a. Dr. Stanley C. Robinson (presently Dean of the Division of University Extension) be given responsibility, at the General University level, for (1) Assisting the Vice President for Governmental Relations and_ Public Service in University-wide relationships involving continuing education;
(2) Directing those parts of the Division of University Extension which are retained under University-wide administration (the three public safety programs, correspondence study, and the Visual Aids Service).
b. Dr. John B. Claar be given responsibility, at the General University level, for (1) Coordinating for University-wide service the activities of the University's field personnel involved in the public service function, both the Cooperative Extension Service field staff and other University field representatives;
(2) Assisting the Vice President for Governmental Relations and Public Service in University-wide public service relationships, particularly of the type involving problem solving and community participation.
(He will retain responsibility for directing the Cooperative Extension Service and serving as Associate Dean.) c. A University Council on Public Service be established to facilitate intercampus programming and relations, with necessary attention to questions of desirable uniformity of procedures and policies.
Implementing details will be worked out by the President in consultation with the Chancellors, including (a) the transfer of functions and resources, (b) field staff organization and relationships, and (c) methods of reporting at campus and University levels.
Appropriate amendment of the University Statutes, if necessary, will be proposed to the Board of Trustees in due course, and reports of campus organizational steps to meet the requirements of Proposal Number 1 and the appointments recommended for Dr. Robinson and Dr. Claar will be submitted to the Board as soon as possible.
It was made clear that specific actions relating to this report will be brought to the Trustees in due course and in the regular manner.
ADDITION TO REGULAR AGENDA FORMATMr. Howard expressed the opinion that it would be helpful to formally provide for an opportunity at the beginning of each meeting, following the President's reports, for Trustees to raise questions generally on matters earlier discussed and to raise new matters of interest. He suggested the agenda item be entitled "Old and New Business" and be regUNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 185
