BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Dr. Manning succeeds Dr. Robert W. Resek who will return to the Department of Economics on the Urbana campus, where he has been a faculty member since 1961, to engage in teaching and research. The vice president for academic affairs, as the senior academic officer of the University, serves as adviser to the president on matters of educational policy, programs, academic personnel actions, and academic budget development, including judgments as to academic priorities and resource allocation. The vice president for academic affairs is responsible for the overall coordination of academic planning at the University and works closely with academic leaders on each campus. The vice president also has a key leadership role in overseeing programs designed to ensure the participation and success of under-represented students, faculty, and staff. In addition, she will have direct oversight of the President's Award Program and other University-wide diversity initiatives. Dr. Manning will have direct line authority over certain University-wide programs including the University of Illinois Press, the Institute of Government and Public Affairs, the Survey Research Laboratory, and the University Office for Academic Policy Analysis. The vice president for academic affairs chairs several key councils and committees as assigned by the president of the University and serves with other general officers of the University as a member of the University Policy Council. Because of the importance of this appointment to members of the faculty of both campuses, I consulted with members of the University Senates Conference concerning the search process. Following those conversations a search committee 1 was appointed. I am indebted to Mr. Wedgeworth and his colleagues for their contributions to this successful search.
