UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Establishment of an Interdisciplinary Minor in Jewish Culture and Society, Sciences and Letters Curriculum, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Urbana
The Urbana-Champaign Senate has approved a proposal to establish an interdisciplinary minor in Jewish Culture and Society in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This minor will consist of 24 hours of course work pertaining to Jewish Culture and Society. The minor is designed so that the students can explore the full range of Jewish culture and society as it is offered in existing courses on campus, while also permitting the students to take advantage of courses which might be taught on a one-time basis. Because all of the courses are offered on a regular basis, the minor does not require additional staff and its implementation should not put any stress on the several units which are involved.
This report was received for record. Report of Award of Contract by the Capital Development Board, Willard Airport, Urbana
(33) The State of Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that existing underground fuel storage tanks at the University of Illinois-Willard Airport be protected from oxidation or removed and replaced. State funds have been authorized and appropriated to the Illinois Capital Development Board (CDB) for the removal of the storage tanks. Since 1991, airport management has discussed with representatives of the CDB the following issues: use of existing fuel storage facilities, timing of removal and replacement of tanks, location of replacement tanks, and funds to support storage tank removal and replacement. Flightstar management and the Institute of Aviation flight line personnel have been involved in determining requirements for future fuel storage facilities. The CDB selected and funded Crawford, Murphy and Tilly, Inc. (CMT), consultant engineers, to perform a site survey and, if required, to develop construction plans for replacement fuel tanks. After reviewing the site survey by CMT, it was decided that existing single-wall steel jet fuel tanks and fiberglass jet fuel and aviation gas tanks should be replaced. Construction plans for tank replacement are near 95 percent complete and the cost estimate for the project is approximately $2,000,000, all of which will be provided from funds controlled by the CDB. Bids will be taken by the CDB early during 1994 and construction should begin during the spring of 1994. The primary location for the replacement tanks will be east of the existing University of Illinois-Willard Airport maintenance garage as shown on the attached Airport Layout Plan. (A copy of the plan is filed with the secretary of the board.) A small secondary site will be at the present jet fuel storage area. The new facilities will be equipped with all required safeguards including leak detection, vapor monitoring, waste storage vessels, overfill protection, and a computer monitoring system. When new facilities are completed, the existing tanks will be removed as part of the project. The chancellor at Urbana and the vice president for business and finance recommend that the University authorize the Capital Development Board to award a contract to remove and replace fuel tanks at the University of Illinois-Willard Airport and that the comptroller and the secretary of the board be authorized to execute all documents including amendments required to complete the project. I concur. This report was received for record.
