UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
C H A N G E IN COMPOSITION. EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
OF WATER RESOURCES CENTER. URBANA(6) The University of Illinois Water Resources Center was established by Board of Trustees action in 1963 to encourage and coordinate interdisciplinary programs related to water resources on a University-wide basis.
With the establishment by Board action in December 1971, of the Institute for Environmental Studies on the Urbana campus, the Center became one of its component units.
The Director of the Institute for Environmental Studies recommends a change in the composition of the Executive Committee of the Water Resources Center as initially approved by the Board of Trustees in 1963.
The proposed change will expand the Committee by two members. Currently, it is specified that a representative from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will serve on the committee. This representation is to be replaced by "Two representatives from one or more other colleges on the Urbana-Champaign campus,"1 but it is recognized that at least one of these representatives may be from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. It is further recommended that the Director of the Institute for Environmental Studies serve as a member of the Center's Executive Committee.
This change in composition of the Executive Committee makes it possible to have a variety of disciplines represented on the Committee and reflects the recent transfer of the Water Resources Center to the Institute for Environmental Studies.
The Acting Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur. I recommend approval and further recommend, with the concurrence of those officers, that the Director of the Institute for Environmental Studies be empowered to appoint the members of the Executive Committee and make any future changes of an administrative nature in the Water Resources Center upon the approval of the Chancellor.
On motion of Mr. Swain, these recommendations were approved and authority was given as recommended.
CHANGE IN NAME OF DEPARTMENT OF HOME ECONOMICS. URBANA(7) The Urbana-Champaign Senate recommends that the Department of Home Economics be renamed the School of Human Resources and Family Studies effective March 1, 1974.
The proposed change in name will more accurately indicate the scope of the programs within the unit. Currently, the Department of Home Economics has five subject matter divisions, administers four undergraduate curricula, offers both master's and doctoral level programs, and has an enrollment constituting one-third of the total enrollment in the College of Agriculture. School status is appropriate because of the unusual diversity of the subject matter with some areas based on the physical and biological sciences, others on the social sciences, and still others on the arts. The majority of land-grant institutions and other major universities in the United States designate their divisions of home economics as colleges or schools.
This change of name does not affect the internal structure or curricula of the department, and there will be no additional funds required for administration or reorganization.
It is further recommended that the title of the executive officer of the school be "director," and that the title of Dr. Pauline C. Paul, whose appointment as Head of the Department of Home Economics was approved by the Board last month, be changed to Director of the School of Human Resources and Family Studies, effective March 1, 1974.
The Dean of the College of Agriculture, the Acting Chancellor at UrbanaChampaign, and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concur in this recommendation. The University Senates Conference has indicated that no further Senate jurisdiction is involved.
I recommend approval.
On motion of Mr. Swain, these recommendations were approved.
The Directors of the Agriculture and Engineering Experiment Stations represent the Colleges of Agriculture and Engineering on the Committee.

RATE INCREASES FOR UNIVERSITY-OPERATED HOUSING
FACILITIES, URBANA(8) On recommendation of the Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign, the President of the University has approved rental rate increases for University-operated
housing at the Urbana-Champaign campus as follows:
1. Undergraduate housing a. In residence halls (9,112 spaces) beginning August 1974, academic-year room and board rates will be increased by the following amounts: single accommodations, $86; double accommodations, $58; and triple accommodations $52.
b. In four cooperative houses (82 spaces) beginning August 1974, academicyear rate increases are: Alpha and Gamma Houses, $30; Delta House, $40;
and French House, $50.
2. In graduate residence halls (986 spaces) a $28 academic-year rate increase in room rates will be effective August 1974^
3. In married student apartments (985 units) no rate increase will be required for 1974-75.
4. In faculty housing a rate increase of $10 per month for new tenants will be effective August 1974.
Alternatives to present services for undergraduate residence halls and rental rate increases for all student housing units were discussed and formulated jointly by the Housing Division and the Student Housing Advisory Committee.1 A schedule of present rates, implemented August 1973, and those projected for next year was presented and a copy of the schedule is filed with the Secretary of the Board. The recommended increases are required because of rising costs of salaries and wages, food, supplies, utilities, and other services. The increases are subject to any regulations issued by the federal Cost of Living Council at the time of their implementation. Further increases of similar amounts, as well as an increase in rates for the married student apartments, are anticipated for 1975-76. However, because certain costs are rising at unpredictable rates, it would be imprudent to make commitments at the present time to rates which might be either inadequate or overly self-protective. Therefore, action on rates for 1975-76 will be postponed until late in 1974.
M r. Jim Gerl, a representative of the U n d e r g r a d u a t e Student Association which had been granted permission to appear concerning this subject, presented the views of the U G S A opposing the increase. T h e Associate Vice Chancellor for Campus Affairs a n d the Director of H o u s i n g w e r e present and spoke in support of the increase.
Following a discussion, on motion of M r. Swain, the action approving the rate increases was confirmed.
