Students must fulfill University and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Sciences and Letters Curriculum requirements for this program.

The development of an undergraduate major in this field is the natural outcome of the growth of linguistics studies at Urbana-Champaign. This program would also provide a larger number of well-trained students from which potential graduate students could be selected. An undergraduate specialization in linguistics provides an excellent background for continued study in many disciplines.

In the first year or two of operation, it is estimated that ten to fifteen undergraduate students would be involved. The estimated cost of operation in the first year is $10,420; however, the number of anticipated undergraduate majors can be absorbed into this program without additional funding.

The Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur in this recommendation. The University Senates Conference has advised that no other Senate jurisdiction is involved.

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

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

274 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [May 16

ESTABLISHMENT OF UNIVERSITY COMPUTER

COORDINATION OFFICE

(15) For several months the Board of Trustees has been kept informed of steps toward consolidation of the administrative data processing function into a University administrative data processing organization, with remote job entry stations for the campuses and the University offices. During that time the general purpose research and instruction computing needs and organization of the campuses have been reviewed.

A special task force was created by the University Planning Committee to advise Vice President Brady on steps which should be taken to address the longrange needs of R & I computing and how to relate to the Illinois Educational Consortium for Computer Services. The task force recommended the creation of a University Computer Coordination Office as the first step. The University Planning Committee and the various computer advisory committees have concurred.

The Office is to:

1. Assess the quality and availability of computing services on all campuses.

2. Coordinate technical resources to meet established needs of the various University constituencies.

3. Prepare and supervise the operation of allocation plans to coordinate access to computing resources.

4. Develop plans for the expansion or reconfiguration of University computing resources in the light of changing academic needs and evolving technology.

5. Collect and maintain information regarding the deployment and use of special computer facilities (sometimes called dedicated computer facilities).

6. Coordinate arrangements between the University and the Illinois Educational Consortium for Computer Services.

The initial funding of the Office will come from existing computer budgets, and the initial leadership will come from Dr. Dillon E. Mapother, currently Director of Computing Services for the Urbana-Champaign campus, who will be on partial released time from that campus.

It is anticipated that the first phase of the effort of the Office will be to propose a configuration of computer services to optimize computer services in the area of general purpose research and instruction for the University. The result of this effort should lead to specific recommendations to the Board of Trustees.

The Office will report to the Vice President for Planning and Allocation and be advised by a policy council with members from all three campuses.

The Vice President for Planning and Allocation and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination recommend this action.

I concur.

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

CHANGE IN NAME OF T H E MEDICAL RESEARCH LABORATORY.

MEDICAL CENTER

(16) The Dean of the Graduate College at the Medical Center campus has recommended that the name of the Medical Research Laboratory be changed to Biologic Resources Laboratory.

(At its meeting on April 18, 1973, the Board of Trustees upon recommendation of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds approved a change in the name of the Medical Research Laboratory Building at the Medical Center campus to Biologic Resources Laboratory Building. A similar change in the name of the administrative unit which occupies the building is now proposed.) The Medical Research Laboratory provides support services to the healthrelated research effort at the Medical Center campus. The support services rendered, while essential and important, are specific and limited; and the words "medical research" are too broadly descriptive. Because the unit provides only those research support services related to the use of laboratory animals, it is believed the words "biologic resources" more accurately describe the functions performed.

This change of name does not require the approval of the Board of Higher Education, but will be reported to the staff of the Board of Higher Education immediately following approval by the Board of Trustees.

The Executive Committee of the Graduate College has been consulted and joins in the recommendation. The Chancellor and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur.





1973] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 275 I recommend approval.

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

CHANGE IN NAME OF THE RESEARCH RESOURCES LABORATORY,

MEDICAL CENTER

(17) The Dean of the Graduate College at the Medical Center campus has recommended that the name of the Research Resources Laboratory be changed to Research Resources Center.

The Research Resources Laboratory is concerned with providing a broad range of support services to the health-related research effort at the Medical Center campus, and is a significant administrative entity with campuswide responsibilities. The term "center" is believed to give the appropriate identity to this multipurpose unit Through the organizational structure of the Research Resources Center, the centralization of supporting services for reasons of efficiency and economy will be expanded. Areas of service in support of research activities to be administered by the Director of the Research Resources Center are the biologic resources laboratory, the research and instructional computer facility, the electron microscope laboratory, the bioinstrumentation laboratory, the nuclear magnetic resources laboratory, the instrument shop division, and the central research equipment division.

This change of name does not require the approval of the Board of Higher Education, but will be reported to the staff of the Board of Higher Education immediately following approval by the Board of Trustees.

The Executive Committee of the Graduate College has been consulted and joins in the recommendation. The Chancellor and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur.

I recommend approval.

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

FISCAL YEAR 1 9 7 3 AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT AID PROGRAM

A N D AGREEMENTS FOR T H E UNIVERSITY OF

ILLINOIS-WILLARD AIRPORT

(18) The President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the Comptroller and the Secretary of the Board be authorized to execute an acceptance of a Grant Offer from the Federal Aviation Administration, and an Agency and Participation Agreement with the State of Illinois, Department of Aeronautics, for funds for the Fiscal Year 1973 Airport Development Aid Program project for the University of Illinois-Willard Airport;

and to negotiate for and acquire land for airport development, and in connection therewith, to make relocation and land acquisition assurances and execute implementing agreements pursuant to the Federal Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policy Act of 1970.

The contractual commitments to be contained in the Grant Agreement and the Agency and Participation Agreement will be similar to those set forth in prior agreements, the most recent of which was approved by the Board of Trustees with reference to the Master Plan Study at the June 21, 1972, meeting of the Board of Trustees. The current program is in accordance with the Master Plan.

The project consists of: (1) acquiring land for airport development, (2) extending, lighting, and marking Runway 31-13 to the southeast (1600' x ISO7) with parallel taxiway, (3) overlaying for strength Runway 31-13 (6500* x 150"), (4) overlaying for strength taxiways serving Runway 31-13.

The total preliminary estimate of project costs is $5,049,580, with 50 per cent furnished by the Federal Aviation Administration and 50 per cent by the State of Illinois Department of Aeronautics— 1971 Bond Issue.

On motion of Mr. Livingston, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr.

Hughes, Mr. Livingston, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; no, none;

absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Neal, Governor Walker. (Mr. Neal was present when the meeting convened but left the meeting prior to consideration of this item.) 276 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [May 16

–  –  –

In addition, the following provisions will be included in the agreement:

1. The right to add tile and repair tile across the taking until the roadbed is constructed.

2. Request the Department of Transportation to agree that adequate provision will be made to provide for drainage equivalent to that which existed before the construction of Interstate Route 72.

3. Any damages resulting from the loss of growing crops shall not be covered by this Agreement, and the Owner may file a claim for such damages without regard to this Contract and Stipulation.

4. The Department of Transportation disclaims any interest in crops growing upon said property and the Owner shall have the right to harvest such crops at any time before the commencement of construction activities upon said property.

5. Request Department of Transportation to agree to restoring temporary easement land equivalent to that which existed before the construction. (Remove all foreign material, restore black soil on top, grade for farming, etc.) Because of the indenture under which the University acquired these farms, the sale is subject to approval by the President of the Alumni Association of the University of Illinois and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of Illinois.

After consultation with the appropriate administrative officers, I recommend the approval of this sale subject to further approvals as indicated above.

On motion of Mr. Steger, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr. Livingston, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Neal, Governor Walker.

REQUEST TO ILLINOIS BUILDING AUTHORITY TO INCREASE

CONTRACT FOR CONSTRUCTION OF T H E MEDICAL RESEARCH

LABORATORY ADDITION, MEDICAL CENTER

(22) The President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the Illinois Building Authority be requested to increase the authorized payments under the contract of the general contractor, Erik A. Borg Company, Chicago, in the amount of $94,288.77 for additional costs for materials and labor as a result of delays caused by caisson problems during construction of the Medical Research Laboratory Addition at the Medical Center campus. It is further recommended that concurrently with such payment the Illinois Building Authority secure a final release from the general contractor on the project, which was occupied in September 1971.

Funds are available in the project budget.

On motion of Mr. Livingston, these recommendations were approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr.

Hughes, Mr. Livingston, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; no, none;

absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Neal, Governor Walker.

PURCHASES (23) The President submitted, with his concurrence, a list of purchases recommended by the Directors of Purchases and the Vice President for Financial Affairs.

The list of purchases was presented in two categories: purchases from appropriated funds (i.e., from State appropriations to the University) and purchases from institutional funds. The latter term designates funds received by the University under contracts with the United States government, contracts with private corporations and other organizations, funds from foundation grants, and grants from corporations and other donors, and University revolving funds authorized by law.

The total amounts of these purchases were :

From Appropriated Funds $307 428 80 From Institutional Funds 473 653 13 Grand Total $781 081 93 278 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [May 16 A complete list of the purchases, with supporting information, including the quotations received, was sent to each member of the Board in advance of the meeting, and a copy is being filed with the Secretary of the Board for record.

On motion of Mr. Howard, the purchases recommended were authorized by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr. Livingston, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain;

no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Neal, Governor Walker.

ACQUISITION O F COMPUTER-AIDED DISPATCH SYSTEM

(24) On March 21, 1973, the Board of Trustees authorized the purchase of seven cathode ray tube terminals and nine compatible television monitors from Cozzens and Cudahy, Indianapolis, Indiana, for $20,304.

That firm now has advised the University that, due to technical difficulties in production, it will be unable to meet the scheduled delivery date, and requests cancellation of the University's purchase order.
