screening prospects for this position. He noted that an academic search firm had been appointed to assist the committee in their work and that this was proving quite useful. He also gave the board an estimated timetable for completion of the committee's work. He said that he hoped the committee would report to President Ikenberry sometime in May. The board members discussed various aspects of the search process with Mr. Wedgeworth and President Ikenberry made comments about his initial charge to this committee.
Salary, President of University
At this time, President Ikenberry departed. Drs. Bazzani and Thompson remained with the board members. At the request of Chair Boyle, Dr. Bazzani presented information comparing salary and benefits of the president of the University with presidents at comparable institutions, in particular, the public members of the Big Ten. (These are data obtained confidentially by agreement among the institutions.) Dr. Bazzani reported that the salary of the president of the University of Illinois has fallen substantially behind the others. The trustees made clear the fact that they wanted to adjust the president's salary to help correct the disparity between the usually desired third place in the Big Ten and the current salary paid the president, particularly since they had such great appreciation for the president's leadership. By consensus, the board directed that the president's salary be increased to $189,000.
