budget lines in a small way (200 faculty lines have been left unfilled for the last four to five years). This budget would also provide the possibility for reducing class size in many courses too. The president stressed to the board that 40 percent of the governor's budget for higher education is for student financial aid. President Ikenberry then reminded the board that it is too easy to get caught up in the dollars and to lose sight of what the University of Illinois is really trying to do. He referred then to the newly published Report Card for the University. (A copy of this is on file with the secretary of the board.) Among other facts in this report is the fact that twothirds of Illinois' best qualified minority high school graduates will enroll at the University of Illinois.
The secretary presented for approval the press proof of the minutes of the Board of Trustees meeting of November 11-12, 1993, copies of which had previously been sent to the board. On motion of Dr. Bacon, these minutes were approved.
REMARKS FROM CHAIR, UNIVERSITY SENATES CONFERENCE
President Ikenberry invited Professor Irving F. Miller, chair of the University Senates Conference, to report to the board on the activities of the conference. Dr. Miller summarized the issues under discussion by the conference. He described the work of a new committee within the conference, the Committee on Terms of Faculty Employment. Next he told the board that the conference had been studying the issue of faculty productivity and that they were also reviewing the document titled: Interim Guidelines on Conflict of Interest, with plans to make it a final document in the near future. He also noted that the conference was monitoring the current review of academic professional positions that is underway at both campuses and in the central administration.
There was no business presented under this aegis.
Mr. Grabowski told the board members that Monsignor Edward J. Duncan, director of the Newman Center on the Urbana campus, has given 50 years of service to the campus in Urbana and will celebrate this anniversary in April 1994. To honor Monsignor Duncan on this occasion, Mr. Grabowski offered the following resolution:
Monsignor Edward J. Duncan: Monsignor Edward J. Duncan has conducted a campus ministry at the Urbana campus for fifty years: the longest tenure of any campus minister in the United States. He is also the Director of the Newman Foundation on the campus.
