UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Annual Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1994
(2) The University budget for operations for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1993, is submitted herewith in the document entitled "Budget Summary for Operations, FY 1993-1994." (A copy of the document has been filed with the secretary of the board for record.) The budget has been prepared by the vice president for academic affairs and the vice president for business and finance based upon recommendations of: (a) the chancellors, after consultation with their respective deans, directors, and other campus officers; and (b) the president of the University. The allocation of funds follows general policies and priorities developed by these reviews and was recommended by the University Planning Council. I recommend that this budget, covering the allocation of the estimated operating income from all sources for the year beginning July 1, 1993, be approved by the Board of Trustees; and that the president of the University be authorized, in accord with the needs of the University and the equitable interests involved, and within total income as it accrues, to make such adjustments in items included in the budget as are needed, such adjustments to be covered in periodic reports to the Board of Trustees.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved and authority was given as recommended by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Dr. Gindorf, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Lopez, Ms. Reese; no, none; absent, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Ms. Huff; absent, Mr. Riley.) By consensus, the board agreed that one vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 3 and 4. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)

She will succeed Dr. Maurice Friedberg who resigned as head to return to teaching and research as a faculty member. The nomination is made with the advice and support of the faculty of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures and the college's Executive Committee. The vice president for academic affairs concurs. I recommend approval.
