BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Atmospheric Research, a special unit of the Graduate College; since 1981, DAS has been a full-fledged academic department, offering a number of undergraduate service courses, as well as programs in atmospheric sciences leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. T h e proposed transfer to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will integrate more effectively the academic program with others on campus, facilitating further development of interdisciplinary research. T h e vice president for academic affairs concurs. I recommend approval, subject to further review by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved.
Revision of Policy and Rules — Nonacademlc (Policy 10, Sick Leave)
(18) T h e Policy and Rules — Nonacademic, encompassing the policies applicable to civil service employees of the University of Illinois, is constantly under review to assure it is meeting the needs and requirements of the University. In some cases these reviews lead to recommendations for change not only to rules and regulations but also to University policy. Such changes to the policies contained in Policy and Rules — Nonacademic require Board of Trustees approval. Therefore, the vice president for business and finance recommends that the wording of this policy (Policy 10, Sick Leave) be changed to be consistent with the changes in University sick leave policy, as amended in the General Rules at the November 12, 1993, Board of Trustees meeting. T h e new wording expands the use of sick leave to include the care of a parent or member of the household. It also explicitly states that sick leave may be used following the birth or adoption of a child. A copy of the revised Policy 10 has been filed with the secretary of the board for record. Copies of the approved policy change will be disseminated to the campus community in the near future. I concur with this recommendation.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved. By consensus, the board agreed that one roll call vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 19 through 30 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)
Authorization for Payment, Vice Chancellor for Health Services, Chicago
(19) T h e chancellor at Chicago recommends that the board, acting as the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois Health Maintenance Organization (UIHMO) Plan Trust, approve payment to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) related to the care of Min Qin. Ms. Qin is a Chicago campus student and member of the UIHMO CampusCare program. She has received surgical treatment at the University of Illinois Hospital and Clinics (UIH&C) for a tumor of the brain and requires intensive cognitive and functional deficits rehabilitation services. UIH&C, however, does not offer the intensity of services required for this follow-up treatment. A contract has been proposed with RIC for the provision of specialized treatment as prescribed by the patient's rehabilitation and physical medicine physician at UIC. Total charges related to the care of Ms. Qin are expected to be no more than $90,000. This amount represents a 15 percent discount on charges and is considered
