UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Interim Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1995
(1) In recent years, the trustees have approved the continuation of the previous year's budget into the next fiscal year when legislative action upon University appropriations was not completed in time to be translated into detailed budget recommendations. Inasmuch as the situation described is expected to occur again this year, the president of the University requests authorization to continue in effect, beginning July 1, 1994, and continuing thereafter until further action of the board, the operating budget for FY 1994 as it exists on June 30, 1994. Authorization is also requested, in accord with the needs of the University and the equitable interest involved and within total resources: (a) to accept resignations; (b) to make such additional appointments as are necessary, and to approve the issuance of notices of nonreappointment, subject to the provisions of the University of Illinois Statutes, General Rules Concerning University Organization and Procedure, and the Policy and Rules — Nonacademic; and (c) to make such changes and adjustments in items included in the interim budget as are needed. Such changes are to be accounted for in the comptroller's quarterly financial reports, or in reports to the board by its secretary.
On motion of Mrs. Gravenhorst, authority was given as requested by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Dr. Gindorf, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Lopez, Ms. Reese; no, none; absent, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Ms. Huff; absent, Mr. Riley.) By consensus, the board agreed that one vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 2 through 7 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.) President Ikenberry took a few minutes to call attention to agenda item no. 3, the recommendation for appointment of Dr. Sylvia Manning as vice president for academic affairs, and thanked Dr. Robert W. Resek for his superb service to the University as vice president for academic affairs.
Appointments to the Board of Examiners in Accountancy
(2) The chairman of the Board of Examiners in Accountancy has recommended the appointments of Gary L. Fish, professor of accounting at Illinois State University, and Selwin E. Price, senior partner in the Chicago office of Grant Thornton, to the board. Both three-year terms will commence on July 1, 1994, and continue through June 30, 1997. I concur.
On motion of Mrs. Gravenhorst, this recommendation was approved. Vice President for Academic Affairs
(3) I recommend the appointment of Dr. Sylvia Manning, currently executive vice provost and professor of English at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, as vice president for academic affairs, beginning August 21, 1994, on a twelve-month service basis at an annual salary of $155,000. Dr. Manning will also hold the rank of professor of English on both the Chicago and Urbana campuses with indefinite tenure on an academic year service basis.
