(41) On July 9, 1992, the board confirmed the president's approval of a contract to Broeren-Russo Construction, Inc., Champaign, for a bid package including flooring work for the Law Building addition and remodeling project at the Urbana campus. The contract documents specified the floor finish in the Agora (commons area within the main entry of the building) to be exposed aggregate concrete. Recently, the College of Law requested an upgrade of that floor from aggregate concrete to slate (approximately 4,200 sq. ft.). In addition, the college has requested that the existing corridor flooring adjacent to the Agora be replaced with the same slate flooring (approximately 3,400 sq. ft.). The costs for the slate flooring are estimated to be $55,000 and $62,000, respectively. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the contract with BroerenRusso Construction, Inc., be increased for the work described and that the project budget be increased by $140,000 to include the contract increase plus contingency to a total of $11,848,000. Funds are available from private gift funds through the University of Illinois Foundation, from funds appropriated by the State of Illinois, and from institutional funds of the Urbana campus. A report of the costs for the work to be done and the source of funds will be made to the board at its July 9, 1993, meeting.
On motion of Dr. Gindorf, these recommendations were approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Dr. Gindorf, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Lopez, Ms. Reese; no, none; absent, Dr. Bacon, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, none; no, none; absent, Mr. Begovich, Mr. Lawless.) President's Report on Actions of the Senate Establishment of a Minor in East Asian Languages and Cultures, Sciences and Letters Curriculum, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Urbana
(42) The Urbana-Champaign Senate has approved a proposal to establish a minor in East Asian Languages and Cultures available to students enrolled in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The minor requires two years of study of an East Asian language as well as five non-language courses on East Asian Cultures, of which at least two must be at the 300-level. The minor will provide students with a solid foundation in an East Asian language, and some familiarity with the civilizations of the region.
