Discontinue the Bachelor of Science in the Teaching of Earth Science Degree Program, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Chicago
(16) The chancellor at Chicago, with the advice of the Chicago Senate and the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, recommends the discontinuance of the Bachelor of Science in the Teaching of Earth Science degree program. In December 1990, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences placed the B.S. in the Teaching of Earth Science on phase-down status with the intention of terminating the program. The program currently has no students enrolled in it, and there have been no graduates of the program in recent years. The vice president for academic affairs concurs in this recommendation. The University Senates Conference has indicated that no further senate jurisdiction is involved. I concur and will notify the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved. Discontinue the Master of Science and Doctoral Programs in Mining Engineering, College of Engineering, Urbana
(17) The Urbana-Champaign Senate has recommended the discontinuance of the M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Mining Engineering. These programs have been completely inactive in recent years, with the last degree having been granted in 1978. In addition, the last faculty member in mining engineering retired in 1986. Since the programs have been inactive since 1978, there will be no budgetary, staff, or student implications in their discontinuance. The chancellor and vice chancellor for academic affairs concur with the senate recommendation. I recommend approval and will notify the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved. Proposed Amendment to The General Rules Concerning University Organization and Procedure
(18) The proposed amendment to Article V, Section 4(h) of the General Rules is intended to clarify that Illinois Board of Higher Education approval is not necessary to use the word "center" in the name of a new building. This clarification is recommended to distinguish the use of the word "center" in a building title from the use of "center" in a program title. Programs do require IBHE approval. This amendment was endorsed by the University Senates Conference and the vice president for academic affairs. I concur. (In the text below, additions are in italics.) ARTICLE V. UNIVERSITY PROPERTY SECTION 4. NAMING OF BUILDINGS, STREETS, AND DRIVES (a) Buildings given to the university may be named for the donors of funds for the same, or for donors whose individual contributions have been crucial in the financing of such buildings. (b) Buildings should be named in such a way as to denote their general use as a matter of convenience to students as well as to visitors, except as provided for in (d) and (e) below. (c) Residence halls may be named for donors of funds for such halls; for
