PURCHASE OF LIABILITY INSURANCE(36) Bids have been received for renewal of public liability insurance policies covering all University operations including automobile, general, and professional liability. The insurance company currently providing this coverage, the Hartford Insurance Group, has declined to continue the policy, at present rates, beyond August 1, 1972.
The quotations on automobile liability insurance are rejected and have not been considered in the award. The implied intent of Public Act 77-472, Seventyseventh General Assembly, is to centralize the purchase of automobile liability insurance under contracts purchased by the State of Illinois through the Department of General Services.
Bids were requested on the same limits of liability as the current contract.
Personal Injury: $ 500 000 per person 1 000 000 per occurrence Property Damage: $ 500 000 per occurrence (subject to franchise deductible of $200) Quotations were requested on two rating methods for the determination of
1. Guaranteed Cost Plan — the annual premium is determined on a specific rate per student. The loss experience during the policy year does not debit or credit the premium for the current year.
2, Retrospective Rating Plan D — the policy provides for payment of an annual premium (Standard Premium) with a provision for a credit (Minimum Premium) or a debit (Maximum Premium) based upon the incurred losses. The exact premium determination is deferred until a final disposition of incurred claims has been made.

Accordingly, the President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the Comptroller and Secretary be authorized to execute such consents to, or acceptances of, assignments of contracts and to execute such other contractual documents with the Illinois Building Authority as may be necessary in connection with the transfer by the Illinois Building Authority of its responsibilities for the foregoing projects, and to execute such agreements with the Capital Development Board and contractors as may be required for the continuation of planning and construction of said projects for the University in accordance with the Capital Development Board Act.

34 [July 19
BOARD OF TRUSTEESProposal for Student Advisory Council to the Board of Trustees University of Illinois July 1972 Students from the three campuses of the University of Illinois propose and recommend that the Board of Trustees establish a Student Advisory Council to the Board. The proposal is outlined below.
Purpose: To provide a formal student liaison to the Board of Trustees This Council would act as a continuing liaison among the students at each campus and the Board members, while not excluding individual students from meeting with the Board members on an informal or formal basis.
Rationale: To facilitate communication between the Board members and students on the three campuses by :
1. Providing for a continuous and consistent relationship between the Board members and students so that each group gets to know the other.
2. Working with the President, the Secretary of the Board, the Chancellors, and the Student Welfare Committee of the Board in setting up the Chancellor's Conferences held prior to Board meetings.
3. Providing complete information so that students can more carefully analyze current issues.
4. Providing opportunities for University-wide discussions among students.
Members shall be appointed by the respective campus student governing bodies.
Chicago Circle and the Urbana-Champaign campuses shall each appoint four students, and the Medical Center campus shall appoint two students.
The following students were present to speak to the proposal arid to receive the Trustees' comments: from the Medical Center campus, Miss Kathy Gillis and Mr. John Lammert; from the Chicago Circle campus, Mr. Gary Marschke and Mr.
Robert Goodman; from the Urbana-Champaign campus, Mr. John Hackmann, Mr. Mark Jackson, Mrs. Edith Terwilliger, Mr. Robert Winter, Mr. Jeff Taylor, and Mr. Mark Jones.
Following general discussion, Mr. Hahn moved adoption of the proposal as presented, Mr. Swain moved an amendment to the motion, to refer the proposal to the President of the University and to the Student Welfare Committee of the Board of Trustees. Mr. Swain's amendment was approved. President Corbally indicated the need to discuss procedural arrangements for student-trustee relationships before any proposal was ultimately approved. He stated that he and other administrative officers would be working with the student group and would develop a specific plan for the Board's consideration in September. In the general discussion it was the apparent consensus of the Trustees that the President would proceed on the assumption that there would be a student advisory council with some type of relationship, yet to be determined, to the Board of Trustees. On that assumption, the President indicated that the student group would be free to select ten to twelve students who might serve on such a body. Mr. Hughes stated that in his judgment it was yet to be determined whether or not the relationship would be directly with the administration or with the Board of Trustees.
The President of the Board then called for a vote on the main motion, as amended, which was approved.
PRESENTATION. MR. ROGER W. C A I N, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
OF T H E ILLINOIS PHARMACEUTICAL ASSOCIATIONMr. Cain had submitted to the Trustees in advance a proposal presented as an alternative to the plans of the Urbana campus to establish pharmaceutical services within the McKinley Health Service for students beginning in September
1972. He asked that the previous action of the Board, which provided for an increase in the hospital-medical-surgical fee to students effective September 1 (and which included at Urbana the expectation that pharmacy service would be provided) be set aside, and that the administration be asked to work out an arrangement to retain the services of local pharmacies.
The Trustees received comment and a review of prior discussions between the Urbana administration and local pharmacists, including Mr. Cain. Comment emUNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS phasized: the need to establish effective service in September when classes begin;
the question of the quality of care and whether it could be best provided by the University plan or through continuing service from local pharmacists; the possibility of rapid implementation of Mr. Cain's proposal and the general question of convenience and advantages to students receiving pharmaceutical services.
