On motion of Ms. Reese, these appointments were approved. Transfer of the Programs in Dance, Music, and Theater; and Redesignation of the Degrees in Music and Communication and Theater, Chicago
(10) At its meeting on June 11, 1992, the University of Illinois Board of Trustees approved the redesignation and transfer of the Department of Music in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) as the Department of Performing Arts in the College of Architecture, Art, and Urban Planning (AAUP). This action was subsequently approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education on July 28, 1992. This redesignation and transfer into a new department was designed to better meet the educational needs and demands of students. Further, this action will increase efficiency and productivity through collaborative efforts of faculty and administration. The chancellor at Chicago, upon the recommendation of the Chicago Senate, the College of Architecture, Art, and Urban Planning, the College of Kinesiology, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, recommends approval of the following actions: Transfer the music degree program (B.A. in Music, IBHE inventory code 50.0901) and music minor from LAS to the Department of Performing Arts in AAUP. Transfer the theater component from the Department of Communication and Theater in LAS to the Department of Performing Arts. The communication component will remain in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Redesignate the Department of Communication and Theater as the Department of Communication. Separate the current undergraduate Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Theater to the B.A. in Communication (to remain in LAS), and the B.A. in Theater (in the Department of Performing Arts).
