UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Determination of Residency Status for Admission and Assessment of Student Tuition
(11) University regulations which define the residency status of students for admission and assessment of fees are determined by the Board of Trustees. In order to better clarify our current policy and provide students more specific information, a revision of the implementation regulations is proposed. No substantive changes are presented. (A copy of the revised regulations is filed with the secretary of the board for record.) The modifications are proposed by the vice president for academic affairs, with the concurrence of the directors of the Offices of Admissions and Records and the university counsel. I recommend approval.
On motion of Ms. Reese, these revisions were approved. Revision of the Industrial Design Curriculum, College of Fine and Applied Arts, Urbana
(12) The Urbana-Champaign Senate has recommended revisions in the curriculum in industrial design which will increase the hours required for graduation to 130. These changes are in keeping with current requirements of the National Association for Schools of Art and Design, of which the School of Art and Design has been an accredited charter member since 1948. Accreditation now requires that B.F.A. programs be structured so that 25-35 percent of the coursework is in the major, 2030 percent in art courses outside the major, 10-15 percent in art history, and 25-35 percent in general education. The other B.F.A. programs of the School of Art and Design have been able to accommodate these requirements within their 122 hours, but the program in industrial design must be increased to 130 hours in order to comply. The chancellor at Urbana recommends that the graduation requirement for the curriculum in industrial design be increased to 130 hours. The vice president for academic affairs concurs. The University Senates Conference has indicated that no further senate jurisdiction is involved. I recommend approval.
On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved. Discontinue the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Degrees in Radio and Television, and Discontinue the Department of Radio and Television, College of Communications, Urbana
(13) The Urbana-Champaign Senate recommends that the B.S. and M.S. degrees in radio and television, and the Department of Radio and Television be discontinued. The department and degrees were put into abeyance in 1977. Since that time no students have been enrolled for either undergraduate or graduate degrees. All courses have been cross-listed under other departments and taught by faculty in those departments. The department has no faculty other than an acting head who is also the dean of the College of Communications, and one zero-time lecturer who is the head of the Division of Broadcasting, whose faculty appointment will be shifted to another unit of the college with his approval. The department's budget consists of one scholarship fund that will be transferred to another department in the college and a small amount of discretionary funding that will remain in the hands of the dean of the college. The discontinuance of the department has been recommended by the Illinois Board of Higher Education and is an action which the faculty and college now wish to take. There are no budgetary, staff, or student implications expected.
