APPOINTMENT OF ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT FOR
ACADEMIC COORDINATION(5) In a separate paper mailed to the Board of Trustees prior to this meeting, I outlined the general structure and future objectives for the Office of Academic Development and Coordination. T h a t report was referred to in the April, 1972, action establishing the office and reiterated the three basic responsibilities assigned to the academic Vice President. One of those responsibilities relates to the
function of academic coordination:
T h e coordination of the operation of the various components of the University to insure that the University functions as an organic university rather than as an aggregate of unrelated campuses and capitalizes upon the advantages of its resources as a system.
T w o years after the reorganization statement significant progress has been made toward this goal, but it is necessary to reaffirm our commitment to the development of University-wide programmatic and support systems where such 448 [February 20
BOARD OF TRUSTEESarrangements constitute the most effective response of the University to the requirements of its mission. There is a need for one major staff position if we are to implement that commitment. After consultation with faculty and administrators at all three campuses, one person emerged possessing the combination of talent and experience required to undertake such a challenge, and George Russell has agreed to accept such a responsibility. Presently the Associate Vice Chancellor for Research and Acting Dean of the Graduate College at the Urbana-Champaign campus, Dr. Russell has worked directly for a Department Head, a college Dean, the Graduate Dean, and the academic Vice Chancellor. A Professor of Physics, he would bring to the Vice President's office distinguished faculty service, extensive administrative experience, and the respect of staff members at every one of the University's campuses.
Dr. Russell will have responsibility for all aspects of system academic coordination as outlined in the background paper, including the planning, implementation, and evaluation of University-wide programs, and the policy issues related to graduate education and research. He will help coordinate the University's input to the Illinois Board of Higher Education "Master Plan — Phase IV," and pay particular attention to the more efficient matching of external resources to internal strengths. A fundamental long-range goal developed for the Vice President and the Associate Vice President will be to have each of the campuses view the quality of the other campuses as intimately related to its own.
The Vice President recommends that Dr. Russell's appointment become effective March 1, contingent upon the progress of the campus' search for a Graduate Dean, and at a salary of $37,500.
On motion of Mr. Swain, this appointment was approved.
CHAIRMANSHIP OF T H E DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY, URBANA(6) The Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has recommended to the Acting Chancellor at Urbana-Champaign the appointment of Dr. Walter L.
Arnstein, presently Professor of History, as Professor of History on indefinite tenure and Chairman of the Department of History, beginning August 21, 1974, on an academic year service basis, at an annual salary of $26,460.
Dr. Arnstein will succeed Dr. Robert M. Sutton who asked to be relieved of this administrative assignment.
The nomination is submitted after consultation with members of the Department of History and on recommendation of its Executive Committee. The nomination is supported by the Executive Committees of the School of Humanities and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The Acting Chancellor at UrbanaChampaign approves the recommendation and the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination concurs.
I recommend approval.
On motion of Mr. Forsyth, this appointment was approved.
