Dr. Broski reported that in the search for a director of the University Hospital and Clinics, Chancellor Stukel had asked the search committee to go back and add names to the short list submitted to him for consideration. Next, he summarized the process of searching for a dean of the College of Pharmacy and for a dean of the School of Public Health, noting that both are ongoing and the search committees are reviewing files for possible candidates.
Personnel Issues, Urbana
Chancellor Aiken then reported on the status of searches at the Urbana campus. He told the trustees that the search firm employed to help with the search for the associate chancellor for development had given him several names of possible candidates. Presently he is pursuing discussions with two individuals and will have others interview them soon. Dr. Aiken also noted that the search for a dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is underway. Next, Dr. Aiken told the board that he planned to extend the current contracts for coaches Lou Henson and Lou Tepper. At this point, Mrs. Calder mentioned that she hoped both would recruit more minorities to their staffs in the years ahead. The chancellor indicated that such a message had already been communicated to the two coaches. In conclusion, Chancellor Aiken reported to the board his recommendation that Robert Wedgeworth be appointed university librarian at Urbana.
Real Estate Matter
Vice Chancellor Broski described for the board a request that had been made to the Chicago campus to transfer a parcel of campus land to the State for eventual use as a State Police Forensics Laboratory. This was discussed briefly and notice was given that this might require a convening of the Executive Committee for a decision prior to the next meeting of the board. The board members were favorably disposed to the proposed use, noting that it might provide a site for academic work.
EXECUTIVE SESSION ADJOURNED
There being no further business, the executive session was adjourned. The board recessed at 5:10 p.m. to reconvene at 8:30 o'clock Friday morning, November 12.
