BOARD OF TRUSTEES
• T h e chancellor, rather than the president, will receive an appeal on the question of whether or not proper procedures have been followed. This change reflects the view that cases arising on a campus should be resolved on that campus. • Applicants for employment and admission will not be included. The current procedures for handling such complaints have proved very cumbersome and expensive. Under the interim policy, such cases will be referred to the affirmative action office for investigation and recommendation. • T h e procedures now in use do not specifically state that at least one opportunity for a hearing must be provided to a grievant. The new process will focus on mediation and conciliation. • The role of an "advisor" in the revised policy may not strictly adhere to the role of "representative," as used in the current guidelines. A copy of the proposed interim policy and procedures is filed with the secretary of the board for record. The chancellor recommends that the board approve the proposed policy and procedures for a two-year period, during which time the effectiveness of the procedures will be evaluated. At the end of that period, the board would be asked for final approval or for modifications as necessary. The vice president for academic affairs and the university counsel concur. I recommend approval.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved.
Establishment of Quasi-Endowment, Chicago (Dr. Robert C. Hamilton Estate)
(13) Dr. Robert C. Hamilton1 died on September 13, 1991, leaving a will naming the University of Illinois at Chicago Athletics Department as beneficiary of approximately $1,278,000 through his estate. The purpose of the bequest designated by the donor is to support student-athlete scholarships at the University of Illinois at Chicago Athletics Department. Dr. Hamilton served as team physician for the University of Illinois at Chicago Athletics Department. The athletic director at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) proposes the establishment of a quasi-endowment with $900,000 of the funds from the Hamilton estate. The income would be used to provide financial aid to student-athletes in accordance with the terms of the bequest. The remaining Hamilton funds have been utilized to fund UIC athletic scholarships. The chancellor at Chicago and the vice president for business and finance have recommended the establishment of the quasi-endowment for the purpose described. I concur.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved. By consensus, the board agreed that one roll call vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 14 through 27 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)
1 Dr. Robert C. Hamilton was UIC's first team physician. He served the department from 1962 to 1974 except for service in Viet Nam from 196/ through 1969. He earned both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Illinois before completing his residency in 1962 at the University of Illinois Hospital.
