BOARD MEETING, SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 1993
When the board reconvened at 9:20 a.m., the following members of the board were present: Dr. Gloria Jackson Bacon, Mrs. Judith Ann Calder, Dr. Jeffrey Gindorf, Mr. Donald W. Grabowski, Mr. Thomas R. Lamont, Ms. Ada N. Lopez, Ms. Judith R. Reese. The following members of the board were absent: Mr. Kenneth R. Boyle, Governor Jim Edgar, Mrs. Susan L. Gravenhorst. The following nonvoting student trustees were present: Mr. Mark B. Begovich, Urbana-Champaign campus; Mr. Craig M. Lawless, Chicago campus. Also present were President Stanley O. Ikenberry, Dr. Michele M. Thompson, secretary, and Professor Jesse G. Delia, chair of the Search Committee for Chancellor, Urbana-Champaign campus. President Ikenberry reviewed the backgrounds of the two specific candidates the members of the board were to meet that day. At 10:10 a.m., the trustees met with the first candidate.1 The board members' questions followed the same line of inquiry as that used in the earlier interview. The candidate's experience was explored and questions were asked about how the candidate would utilize this experience in approaching the position of chancellor at the Urbana campus. The trustees also asked the candidate questions related to the list of characteristics listed above. In addition, questions regarding commitment to undergraduate education, diversity on campus, and ability to manage scarce resources were posed. The candidate discussed each of these points. The interview was concluded at 11:30 a.m. and the board members recessed for lunch. (Mr. Lawless left the meeting at this time.) At 2 p.m., the members of the board reconvened to meet with the second candidate of the day. Again, the board members' questions focused on the candidate's experience and how this would be put to use if the individual were chancellor at Urbana. The trustees also asked the candidate questions related to the list of characteristics listed above. In addition, questions regarding commitment to undergraduate education, diversity on campus, and ability to manage scarce resources were posed. The candidate discussed each of these points. This interview concluded at 3:20 p.m. For approximately 20 minutes prior to recess, the trustees shared their views of the candidates interviewed to that point with President Ikenberry.
1 This was Dr. Michael Aiken who was later recommended to the Board of Trustees for the position of chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus and approved by the board on February
