(7) The chancellors at the two campuses have recommended members of the faculty to be given sabbatical leaves of absence in accordance with the provisions of the University of Illinois Statutes. The programs of research, study, and travel for which leaves are requested have been examined by the research boards at the campuses. The vice president for academic affairs has reviewed the applications for the leaves and recommends approval of 68 leaves for Chicago and 170 leaves for Urbana-Champaign. (A list of those recommended has been filed with the secretary of the board for record.) (For the record and to provide an annual compilation, in 1993-94, 57 leaves were taken at Chicago, 163 leaves were taken at Urbana-Champaign, and 2 leaves were taken by Central Administration.) I concur.
On motion of Mr. Grabowski, these leaves were granted as recommended.
Redesignation of the Department of Civil Engineering, Mechanics, and Metallurgy, College of Engineering, Chicago
(8) The chancellor at Chicago, with the advice of the Chicago Senate and the College of Engineering, recommends the redesignation of the Department of Civil Engineering, Mechanics, and Metallurgy (CEMM) to the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering. The renaming of the department is part of CEMM's restructuring plan and is indicative of enrollment demand and research trends. The consolidation of the M.S. and Ph.D. in Metallurgy and the M.S. and Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics, into the M.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Engineering has already been approved by the Board of Trustees and is pending approval by the Illinois Board of Higher Education. The redesignation recommended here will complete the restructuring. The vice president for academic affairs concurs in this recommendation. The University Senates Conference has indicated that no further senate jurisdiction is involved. I recommend approval, pending further action by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
On motion of Mr. Grabowski, this recommendation was approved.
Discontinue the Bachelor of Science Degrees in Metallurgical Engineering and in Materials Science and Engineering, College of Engineering, Chicago
(9) The chancellor at Chicago, with the advice of the Chicago Senate and the College of Engineering, recommends the discontinuation of the Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering and the Bachelor of Science in Materials Science and Engineering. The multi- and inter-disciplinary nature of a modern materials engineering program has all but made it necessary that the first meaningful professional degree for the materials area be raised to the Master's level.
