BOARD OF TRUSTEES
BUSINESS PRESENTED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY
President Ikenberry recognized and introduced observers from the campus senates and from the University Senates Conference.1 He then reported that there had been a productive retreat the day prior, stating that he thought a sharper, keener, and more vital vision of the University's mission had come from the discussions of the day. The president also noted that there had been a discussion on tuition which was useful and that it was now time to accelerate the planning timetable for tuition issues. President Ikenberry told the board members that in view of the fact that the legislature had not yet settled on a budget for the University for the next fiscal year that there might be a payless payday in the week ahead if the matter of the budget was not resolved. The president also reported that the Illinois State Senate had asked for assistance from the University in explaining issues surrounding possible tax increases in Illinois. He indicated that he had offered the resources of the University, either in terms of staff or facilities to aid such an investigation.
