BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Next, Chancellor Stukel introduced Mr. Fred Garcia, executive associate vice chancellor for administration at the Chicago campus, and told the board that Mr. Garcia was retiring after 27 years of service to the Chicago campus.
Resolution to Bernard T. Wall
Mr. Boyle asked Mrs. Gravenhorst to read the following resolution to honor Mr. Bernard T. Wall, treasurer of the board, on his service to the board. Mr. Wall had announced his intention to resign as treasurer, effective with the naming of a successor.
To Bernard Wall: The position of treasurer of the University was established by the legislature as a part of the creation of the University of Illinois. It was provided that the board should appoint a person who was not a member of the board, "At the first, and at each biennial meeting thereafter," to be the treasurer. Bernard T. Wall has served as the treasurer of the University of Illinois since January of 1981. While in practice the treasurer performs a multitude of ministerial duties, the holder of that office must also strike a nice balance between an independent oversight function required by good business practice and cooperative effort teamed with the comptroller's staff. Bernard Wall has handled those tasks with exceptional skill, integrity, and dedication. A long-standing member of the University of Illinois family, Bernie earned his Bachelor's Degree with high honors in 1960 and a law degree in 1962 from the University. He was a member of the Order of the Coif and a member of the Board of Editors of the Law Forum. He earned an LLM Degree from Harvard in 1963. Service as the treasurer of the University carries no monetary rewards, career advancement, or public acclaim, and levies a substantial burden of responsibility. But the significance of that service is understood by the trustees and the officers of the University who now express their grateful appreciation for the many years of effective and conscientious performance of those duties, and the hope that as he leaves that position, he will continue to find ways to serve the University.
On motion of Mr. Grabowski, this resolution was approved unanimously. President Ikenberry then expressed appreciation to Mr. Wall on behalf of himself and the general officers of the University for Mr. Wall's service to the board and to the University for so many years. This was a generous gift to the University.
Appreciation to Julia C. Huff
Ms. Lopez then expressed gratitude on behalf of the board to Julia C. Huff, the student trustee from the Urbana-Champaign campus, on the occasion of her departure from the board. She then presented a certificate to Ms. Huff. Ms. Huff thanked the board for the experience of serving on the board.
The board then considered the following reports and recommendations from the President of the University.
