BOARD OF TRUSTEES
They further recommend that the president of the University be authorized to release those items retaining confidential status as soon as the need for such confidentiality no longer exists. I concur.
On motion of Mr. Boyle, these recommendations were approved. President's Report on an Action of the Senate Discontinue the Teacher Education Minor in Health Education, College of Applied Life Studies and Council on Teacher Education, Urbana
(29) The Urbana-Champaign Senate has recommended that the Teacher Education minor in Health Education be discontinued. Students are not selecting this minor in sufficient numbers to justify its continued existence. The department does not have the resources necessary to offer a sufficient number of specialized courses to fulfill State of Illinois requirements. Thus, the minor in Health Education is no longer needed.
This report was received for record. Report of Increase in Contract, Front Entrance Lobby Renovation, Intramural Physical Education Building, Urbana
(30) The $200,000 project to remodel the front entrance lobby at the Intramural Physical Education Building is a part of the Auxiliary Facilities System projects approved for Fiscal Year 1993. The department has requested that project funds be used to remove the existing exterior and interior vestibule doors and replace them with new doors which includes making the east set of doors accessible to handicapped persons. In order to cause the least amount of disruption to the use of the facility, the department has requested that the general contractor, Illini Builder's Group, Champaign, provide and install these doors as an addition to their contract. Since the department requested that the work be performed during the Christmas break, it was necessary to increase Illini Builder's Group contract by $39,297 to meet the delivery date for doors and hardware. Because of the need for immediate action, the president has approved the increase. In accordance with the General Rules Concerning University Organization and Procedure, the president reports his action. Funds are available from the Auxiliary Facilities System Repair and Replacement Fund.
This report was received for record. Report of Increase in Contract, Materials Science and Engineering Instructional Laboratories, Urbana
(31) On March 26, 1993, the Board of Trustees authorized the award of a construction contract to W. Commercial Builders, Inc., Urbana, for the general work in remodeling the Materials Science and Engineering Instructional Laboratories (Kiln House) at the Urbana campus. As a result of the record rains on August 12, 1993, the first floor area in the Materials Science and Engineering Building flooded to a depth of over three inches, resulting in the backing up of the existing sanitary sewer. The total cost for this repair work is $31,450.
