SPECIAL UNDERGRADUATE INSTRUCTIONAL A N D C U R R I C U L U M
DEVELOPMENT AWARDS FOR PROJECTS COMPLETEDDURING T H E SUMMER OF 1 9 7 3 (8) At its meetings on March 21, 1973, and April 18, 1973, the Board of Trustees approved a total of twenty-six projects, involving thirty-one faculty members, for support during the summer of 1973 under the Urbana-Champaign program of Undergraduate Instructional Awards and the Chicago Circle program of Curriculum Development Awards. These awards generally provided a full-time salary for two months to the recipients for work on projects designed to improve the quality of undergraduate instruction. (There were two awards for projects of one month's duration and one award which provided half-time salary.) In December, 1972, and again in October, 1973, the Standard Oil (Indiana) Foundation made available a total of $5,000 for special awards for outstanding teaching by undergraduate faculty — $3,000 on each occasion for the teaching awards and $2,000 on each occasion to be deposited in the President's Contingency Fund. The sum of $6,000 has been held for special awards for projects conducted during the summer of 1973.
The Chancellors at the Chicago Circle and the Urbana-Champaign campuses each appointed a special committee to review the reports submitted by the grantees following the completion of their projects last summer. The committees were asked to select the most meritorious projects for recommendation to their respective chancellors. In the light of these recommendations, ten proposals were submitted to the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination for consideration (four from the Chicago Circle campus and six from the UrbanaChampaign campus). After reviewing the reports and the endorsements, the Vice President for Academic Development and Coordination recommends that special awards of $1,000 be made for six of the ten projects as follows (in the instances where more than one person was involved in one project, the award will be shared
by the participants) :

DOCTOR O F ARTS IN CHEMISTRY, URBANA(10) The Urbana-Champaign Senate recommends the establishment of a Doctor of Arts in Chemistry degree in the Department of Chemistry. The Chancellor concurs, as does the Acting Dean of the Graduate College, in the recommendation of the Senate.
The Doctor of Arts in Chemistry proposal has undergone extensive review on the Urbana-Champaign campus and has received support at all levels in recognition of the exceptional quality of the proposed program and the faculty that will be directing Doctor of Arts in Chemistry candidates.
The Doctor of Arts in Chemistry is designed for an able candidate who wishes to prepare for a position of educational leadership which requires a broad education well beyond the level of a master's degree in chemistry, but not the strong emphasis upon basic research which is provided by the Ph.D. program.
1974] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS This alternate, advanced degree requires the satisfactory completion of twentyfour units, as for the Ph.D., but includes a broader range of advanced course work, some basic research experience, and a thesis based upon the study of a problem in the area of the candidate's professional goals. Additional specific requirements are the following: (1) fifteen units in the chemical sciences; (2) four units in a minor area or areas other than in the chemical sciences; (3) at least twelve units at the 400 level; (4) a "research" master's degree with a thesis (Chemistry 499) or an equivalent experience in basic chemical research; (S) a reading knowledge of German, French, or Russian, or an equivalent skill pertinent to the candidate's goals; (6) one or two years' internship as a part-time teaching assistant; and (7) passing of preliminary and final examinations. Requirements for admission to and for good standing in the program are the same as for Ph.D.
Mankind's rapid advance in knowledge and technology has led to requirements in government, industry, and educational institutions for persons who have obtained an advanced professional education, but whose subsequent work will be neither doing original research nor teaching others how to do it. The main objective of this program is to meet such needs by providing a broader background and educational experience, a larger proportion of which will be pertinent to the future careers of the graduates. The faculty and resources of the Ph.D. program in the Department of Chemistry will provide the breadth and quality of graduate instruction necessary to make the proposed D.A. program a credible and acceptable alternative to the Ph.D.
It is estimated that the enrollment in the program will be two in the first year and increase to ten by the sixth year. It is not anticipated that the program will either increase the total number of graduate students in the department or require additional faculty or facilities for its operation, since it serves as an alternative program for students who would otherwise have been in the Ph.D. program.
Furthermore, the initial emphasis of the program upon candidates interested in two- and four-year college teaching would, as a by-product, help in maintaining and improving the effectiveness and quality of our undergraduate courses and programs in chemistry.
Operating resources required in the first and sixth years of the program are
estimated as follows:
