the need for advanced training in science for the State's secondary school teachers. These programs lead to the following degrees: M.S. in Physical Science, M.S. in the Teaching of Physical Science, and M.S. in the Teaching of Chemistry. The last M.S. in Physical Science was awarded in June 1968. Although the other two programs require fewer advanced science courses than the one proposed for elimination, no candidates have completed this program in 24 years. The chancellor at Urbana and the vice president for academic affairs concur with the senate recommendation. I recommend approval, subject to further action by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved. Amendment to Federal Grant, Willard Airport
(7) On September 8, 1988, the board authorized the acceptance of a grant offer in the range of $832,000 to $2,649,811 from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The grant was intended to accomplish the final phase of the site development of the Willard Airport Terminal Building Complex construction project. On November 10, 1988, the board was informed that the grant was actually $3,012,000, and provided partial reimbursement for land acquisition, and for paving the new entrance road, service drive, aircraft parking apron, and a connecting taxiway. This work has been completed. The FAA has informed the University that additional funds, in the amount of $112,061, are available for this grant, and proposes to amend the grant to provide that amount for land reimbursement and engineering fees. The chancellor at Urbana has recommended that the University accept the amendment to the grant as proposed by the FAA. The vice president for business and finance concurs. 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. 8 through 18 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)
Approval of 1993 Budget for the Mile Square Health Center, Chicago
(8) The chancellor at Chicago recommends approval of the budget for the Mile Square Health Center for calendar year 1993 as required by the terms of the 1990 agreement between the University's Board of Trustees and the City of Chicago. The city's Department of Health approved the center's budget on January 22, 1993, with the center's Steering Committee approving the budget on January 29, 1993. The interim vice chancellor for health services, along with the center's executive director and Steering Committee has proposed an operating budget of $3,707,879 for the year, representing an increase of 4.7 percent over the actual expenditure level for calendar year 1992. The University's contribution to this budget is $672,700, a reduction of 2.0 percent representing the overall State budget action for the University. The vice president for business and finance recommends approval. I concur.
On motion of Mr. Lamont, this recommendation was approved by
