Professors in the Center are chosen from among the most distinguished, productive, and widely recognized scholars at the University. Appointment to a professorship in the Center is the highest recognition that the University can bestow upon members of its faculty. A professor in the Center retains his status in his own department and maintains a full schedule of teaching and research. Currently, the professors in the Center are: Professors John Bardeen, Joseph L, Doob, Harry G. Drickamer, Nelson J. Leonard, James W. Marchand, Charles E. Osgood, Charles P. Slichter, Sol Spiegelman, Jack Stillinger, Michio Suzuki, Ledyard R. Tucker, Gregorio Weber.

270 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [May 16 SABBATICAL LEAVES O F ABSENCE, 1 9 7 3 - 7 4, URBANA (9) The Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign has recommended that the following faculty members be given sabbatical leaves of absence in accordance with the provisions of the University of Illinois Statutes and on the terms and for the periods indicated.

The programs of research, study, and travel for which leaves are requested have been examined by the Research Board and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination has reviewed the applications for the leaves and recommends approval.

(10) The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for some years has conducted student exchange programs with the University of Los Andes in Bogota, Colombia; the Technical University of Munich in Munich, Germany; and the Unite Pedagogique d'Architecture No. 3, in Versailles, France. When the Board of Trustees approved the current tuition waiver policy on October 20, 1971 (requiring that tuition waivers be given only on the basis of financial need), it became necessary to request the Board to grant exemptions to that policy for a total of ten students coming to the Urbana-Champaign campus from the foreign institutions listed above to participate in the exchange programs. On July 19, 1972, the Board approved this request for 1972-73 only, pending the formulation of agreements between the foreign institutions and the University.

1973] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 271 The agreements now have been formulated for exchange of services, facilities, stipends, tuition, and fees between the University and the foreign institutions.

The Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign has recommended that tuition waivers be granted for a maximum of two students from the University of Los Andes, two students from the Technical University of Munich, and six students from the Unite Pedagogique d'Architecture No. 3, to be continuous from year to year, in exchange for similar services and facilities awarded to University of Illinois students and staff at the three foreign universities.

I recommend approval.

Mr. Howard moved approval, with the understanding that the recommendation include a request that the Comptroller and the Secretary of the Board be authorized to execute the agreements. The motion was unanimously approved.


URBANA (11) Under regulations approved by the Board of Trustees on February 21, 1962, academic staff members who hold appointments requiring service for not less than three-fourths of a term are entitled to applicable exemptions1 from tuition and service fees. For the summer term, this is interpreted as a minimum of six weeks.

With the advent of the early calendar (reported to the Board in February, 1972), normal summer appointments for research assistants and others may, in some instances, have to be reduced to periods less than six weeks. In order to alleviate the financial problem posed for the affected staff members and to provide a smooth transition to the new calendar, the Chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus has proposed that, for fee exemption purposes during the 1973 and 1974 summer terms only, an academic staff appointment must require service for not less than one-half of the term. (This is interpreted as a minimum of four weeks.) The Vice President for Planning and Resource Allocation concurs in this proposal.

I recommend approval.

On motion of Mr. Swain, this recommendation was approved.


(12) Under Article II, Section 1 of the University Statutes, amendments to a Senate Constitution must be approved by the Board of Trustees, and changes in the By-laws of a campus Senate must be reported to the Board.

Recently the Urbana-Champaign Senate has approved several changes in its Constitution. The recommended amendments to the Constitution for which approval is recommended are printed below. (Changes in the By-laws have also been made and will be reported for the information of the Board at a later date.) The Chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus concurs in the recommended changes.

I recommend approvalOn motion of Mr. Hahn, this recommendation was approved.

Proposed Amendments to the Urbana-Champaign Senate Constitution

I. Add a section to Article II saying:

A faculty Senator can be recalled by a vote of two-thirds of the members of his voting unit.

II. Add a section to Article III saying:

A student Senator can be recalled by a vote of two-thirds of those voting in the recall election.

III. Add to Article III, Section 6, the following sentence:

If such a member is or becomes an elected member of the Senate, he shall not be deprived of his voting rights as a Senator.

Appointments up to 67 per cent of full time, but not less than 25 per cent, are entitled to a waiver of tuition and service fees. Appointments in excess of 67 per cent are entitled to a waiver of the nonresident portion of tuition, if applicable, and the service fee.

272 [May 16


IV. Exclude from the student electorate anyone who is a member of the faculty electorate.

Article I I I, Section 1, begins "The student electorate shall consist of all persons actively pursuing a degree on this campus and who meet the eligibility requirements for voting." Because the amendment proposed for Article II, Section lb, would make some persons members of both faculty and student electorates, it is proposed to alter the first sentence of Article I I I, Section 1, to say "The student electorate shall consist of all persons actively pursuing a degree on this campus who meet the eligibility requirements for voting and who are not members of the faculty electorate."

V. Reduce to eight hours the load required for professional students to qualify as members of the student electorate.

Article I I I, Section 1, continuing the specification of the student electorate, says "d, if a professional student, taking a minimum of 12 hours for credit."

It is proposed to change 12 (twelve) hours to 8 (eight) hours, bringing requirements for professional students more into line with those for their graduate student counterparts, who must carry two units or register for thesis credit (but see V I below).

VI. Admit to the student electorate those graduate students who, though carrying less than two units but more than zero unit, have at least fifty per cent academic appointments.

Article I I I, Section 1, further says "e, if a graduate student, taking a minimum of 2 units for credit or be registered for thesis credit." It is proposed to add the words "or be taking less than 2 but more than 0 units for credit and have at least a one-half time appointment to the campus academic staff." T h e present rule seems improper in its effect on a graduate student who takes less than 2 units and carries an academic appointment of at least 50 per cent. Such a student is as intimately concerned with University educational affairs as is a 2-unit graduate student but he is excluded from both the student and faculty electorates. T h e proposed amendment meets this problem by treating a SO per cent academic appointment plus some course credit as equal to 2 units in qualifying the student as a member of the student electorate.


(13) In accord with the recommendations of Master Plan Phase I I I and with the support of the Chicago City Colleges, the Chicago Circle campus has been developing a Doctor of Arts degree program in major areas of its graduate curriculum. The Board of Trustees has previously approved such degrees in chemistry, in biological sciences, and in mathematics. The Board of Higher Education staff and its Commission of Scholars have endorsed the extension of such programs at the Chicago Circle campus. The Chicago Circle Senate has now recommended authorization of a curriculum leading to the degree of Doctor of Arts in Physics.

The program would be formally initiated in September, 1973, and would utilize existing strength in faculty and physical resources in this discipline as well as faculty and facilities made available through external support. This external support extends over a three-year period and represents more than $300,000 in grants from the National Science Foundation, the Sloan Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation.

T h e estimated first year cost of the program is $26,100. However, the program can be initiated without additional funds by internal reallocation of resources within the department and by utilization of support from the external sources listed above. Whether fifth year costs, estimated at $40,000, can be met without additional cost or reallocation will depend on enrollments and on amount of outside support generated.

The program is specifically designed for the training of science educators for universities, four-year colleges, and junior or community colleges, and also for the training of specialists in the technology of science education at various school and undergraduate college levels. The program is built upon intensive training in subject matter, research in a science educational program, and an internship or practicum in teaching techniques to develop breadth of knowledge and expertise in teaching science subjects.

1973] 273


Consistent with the recommendations of Master Plan I I I, the Doctor of Arts program includes the following specific elements: the development of problemsolving ability, applied work or internship experience, methods of effective communication and interpretation of information, and ability to utilize educational technology. The Graduate College at Chicago Circle, with strong university support, has assigned a high priority to such programs. The latest report from the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education urges the continued development of Doctor of Arts programs.

Degree requirements A candidate for the degree of Doctor of Arts must successfully complete 144

quarter hours of graduate-level course work, including the following:

1. 48 quarter hours of course work beyond the baccalaureate in physics (which must include Physics 323, 331, 362, 401, 402, 411, 412, 441, and 461).

2. 20 quarter hours in educational methods and techniques (which must include Physics 451 and 452 and D. A. 406, plus one of the following: Physics 453, D. A. 402, 404, 408).

3. 32 quarter hours of electives.

4. Successful completion of a supervised practicum in science teaching (4 quarter hours).

5. 16 quarter hours of thesis work on an approved research topic in physics.

6. Completion of at least 24 quarter hours of thesis work on an approved topic in science education and a satisfactory examination defense of the thesis.

In addition to these course requirements, the student must:

1. Satisfactorily demonstrate teaching ability before an examining committee.

2. Pass a qualifying examination similar to that required for the Ph.D. and a preliminary examination following the completion of all course work.

The Chancellor at Chicago Circle and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur in the recommendation. The University Senates Conference has indicated that no further Senate jurisdiction is involved.

I recommend approval, subject to further action by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.

On motion of Mr. Swain, this recommendation was approved.


(14) The Urbana-Champaign Senate has recommended the establishment of an undergraduate major in linguistics in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

This program is designed to prepare students for advanced work in linguistics and the linguistic aspects of the social, cognitive, and quantitative sciences. It provides fundamental training in the major areas of linguistics and includes courses in computational linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and mathematical linguistics.
