Personnel Issues, Chicago
Chancellor Stukel reported to the board the status of searches for administrative positions at the Chicago campus. He told the trustees that there were four finalists for the position of vice chancellor for human resources and administration, and that they would be interviewed in the next few weeks. For the position of vice chancellor for health services, Dr. Stukel reported that there were two finalists (a third had withdrawn in recent weeks). He indicated that he planned to bring a recommendation for appointment for the vice chancellor for health services to the July meeting of the board.
Acquisition of Land for Chicago Campus
Chancellor Stukel presented plans for acquiring land south of Roosevelt Road for the campus' expansion. He said that the current price of purchase for the land desired is $5.5 million. Further, it is planned that the City of Chicago would invest $1.0 million in infrastructure improvements. The chancellor also discussed a proposal from a representative of the city to trade some land owned by the University for land south of Roosevelt Road. The board members responded that they did not support this.
Personnel Issues, Urbana
Chancellor Weir reported that the search for a dean of the College of Law had concluded and that he would recommend the appointment of Associate Dean Thomas Mengler for the position. He indicated that this would be an item in the regular agenda for a vote the following day. Dr. Weir told the board members that there were four finalists interviewed for the position of vice chancellor for academic affairs, but that one had withdrawn. He indicated that the board would probably receive a recommendation for appointment for this position at their meeting in July.
Policy for Reassignment of Administrators
There was discussion of a policy the board is considering adopting which would make it clear that administrators relieved of duties for whatever reason could be reassigned and given other appropriate duties with commensurate salary. The president told the board that there was a need to formalize the practice of reassignment and accompanying adjustment of salary for administrators. The board agreed that such a formal policy ought to be developed.
