BOARD OF TRUSTEES
of Letters and Sciences at Wisconsin, and dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Pennsylvania. Since 1989, Dr. Aiken has served as provost of the University of Pennsylvania. As the chief academic officer, he has been responsible for the management of academic programs of the University's schools and resource centers, including the enhancement of undergraduate education, graduate education and research, and minority recruitment and retention. Dr. Aiken's rich fund of experience provides the ideal background for the chancellorship of the Urbana-Champaign campus. In bringing this recommendation forward, I wish to acknowledge the excellent work of the search committee 1 under the direction of Professor Jesse G. Delia. The search was executed in a splendid fashion and has provided us with an outstanding candidate in a timely way. It is now my pleasure to recommend the appointment of Dr. Aiken as chancellor of the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University of Illinois.
On motion of Dr. Gindorf, this appointment was approved. By consensus, the board agreed that one vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 2 through 7 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)
