Mr. Grabowski spoke of the recent death of Seymour Raven, formerly assistant to the chancellor at the Chicago campus. In recalling Mr. Raven's kindnesses to many trustees, Mr. Grabowski asked that the secretary send a letter of condolence to Mr. Raven's family. Dr. Bacon requested that she be provided a report on the first six months following the closing of the laundry at UIC and the placement and current status of the employees involved.
Mrs. Gravenhorst announced that she would attend a meeting sponsored by the Association of Governing Boards at the time of the February board meeting. Mr. Lamont raised a question about plans to cease offering a master's degree in public administration at the Urbana campus. Chancellor Aiken promised a re-examination of this matter. Mrs. Gravenhorst then asked Chancellor Stukel to say a few words about the new athletic conference that UIC is to join. Dr. Stukel explained that the new conference had institutions more similar to UIC and that all were in major media markets which would be helpful for UIC's athletic programs.
The board considered the following reports and recommendations from the president of the University. By consensus, the board agreed that one vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 3 through 7 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.) (Trustee Calder left the meeting at 12 noon.)
