designated by the donor is to provide scholarships in memory of her son Glenn Rhodes Wilson1 for students majoring in chemistry. The head of the Department of Chemistry has proposed the establishment of a quasi-endowment with all of the funds from the Wilson trust. The income would be used to provide scholarships for students majoring in chemistry in accordance with the terms of the bequest.

On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved.
Quality Assessment and Improvement and Utilization Management Plans, University of Illinois Hospital and Clinics, Chicago
(19) The chancellor at Chicago has recommended approval of the revised Quality Assessment and Improvement and Utilization Management plans for the University of Illinois Hospital and Clinics. The standards of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) require that all accredited hospitals have quality assessment and improvement and utilization management plans which are reviewed on a regular basis, revised accordingly, and approved by their respective governing boards. The Quality Assessment and Improvement and Utilization Management plans of the University of Illinois Hospital and Clinics are designed to monitor and evaluate the quality and appropriateness of patient care. Included in the overall program are quality assessment activities performed throughout all areas of the hospital. Utilization management activities assure that resources are used appropriately and efficiently in the hospital and clinics. The chancellor receives reports of hospital-wide quality, utilization, risk management, and safety program activities through the interim vice chancellor for health services. Subsequently, the chancellor reports these findings to the Board of Trustees. The Quality Improvement Council (formerly the Quality Assurance Council) of the hospital and clinics meets on an ongoing basis and receives reports from its subcommittees which have the responsibility for monitoring the quality and appropriateness of care delivered throughout the hospital and clinics. The council has recommended to the Executive Committee of the medical staff and the interim hospital director changes that will incorporate language recommended by JCAHO standards. In addition, the recommendations include changes in the membership of the Quality Improvement Council. (The texts of the revised Quality Assessment and Improvement and Utilization Management plans are filed with the secretary of the board for record.) The vice president for academic affairs concurs in this recommendation. I recommend approval.
On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved. By consensus, the board agreed that one roll call vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 20 through 30 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)
Glenn Rhodes Wilson earned a B.S. degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences in 1943.
