UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Acquisition of Land on Daniel Street, Champaign
(30) In 1990, the University acquired the property at 404 E. Daniel Street, Champaign, in order to provide replacement parking for that which was lost when the International Programs Building was sited on Fifth Street. Since that time, negotiations have continued with the Baptist Student Foundation (BSF) to acquire the adjacent property at 402 E. Daniel Street for the same purpose. The BSF currently operates a student residence facility at 402 E. Daniel Street. For several years, they have attempted to replace that building with a more modern facility located within the same block as their other buildings. A property has been located at 306 E. Daniel Street that would be acceptable for their program. The University has concluded negotiations with the owners of both properties. The owner of 306 E. Daniel Street is willing to sell the property to the University for a price of $185,000. The University will provide for half the payment upon execution of the contract and the balance with the receipt of possession on June 1, 1993. The BSF will then exchange with the University the property at 402 E. Daniel for the property at 306 E. Daniel. The latter property will be transferred to the BSF on June 1, 1993, to permit the construction of the replacement housing facility on that site. The BSF will transfer the property at 402 E. Daniel Street to the University on June 1, 1994, upon the payment by the University of the additional sum of $32,385. All of the above transactions are within appraisal prices received by the University. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the University acquire the property at 306 E. Daniel and exchange it for the Baptist Student Foundation's property at 402 E. Daniel Street, Champaign. Funds are available in the Division of Campus Parking at the Urbana-Champaign campus.

(31) The senate at Chicago has approved the establishment of a minor in Jewish studies offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The minor requires successful completion of 18-21 semester hours, including Jewish Studies 100 (Introduction to Jewish Studies) and 15-18 hours selected from a list of approved courses. Formerly, UIC offered a major and minor in Judaic Studies under an agreement with Spertus College ofJudaica. The agreement was terminated when Spertus decided to concentrate its resources on providing graduate education.

The Urbana-Champaign Senate has approved a proposal to add an option in environmental geology to the Curriculum in Geology and Geophysics in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The option includes the same foreign language, rhetoric, and general education requirements as the existing geology and geophysics options, coupled with those specific basic science and geology courses most essential for work in the environmental field.
