time, Professor Watts presented a report on activities of the UrbanaChampaign Senate Council for the 1991-92 academic year. (A copy of this report is filed with the secretary of the board for record.)
President Ikenberry told the trustees that Illinois Senate Resolution 141 passed in spring 1992 sought to ensure parity for salaries for State employees. The president indicated that the key to carrying out the intent of this resolution was the portion of the Fiscal Year 1994 budget request of the University that addresses the lowest paid employees within the University. If the FY 1994 budget allows for funding this first attempt at equalizing salaries for the lowest paid of the University's employees this would be a good start on a program that would take several years to complete.
INTRODUCTION OF CANDIDATES FOR TRUSTEE
President Lamont introduced three candidates for the office of trustee of the University of Illinois in the November election who were attending the meeting as observers: Craig Burkhardt, Springfield (Republican); Jeffrey Gindorf, M.D. (Democrat), Crystal Lake; and Gayl Ann Symonds Pyatt (Republican), Pinckneyville. He noted as well that incumbent trustee Judith Ann Calder (Democrat) was seeking reelection.
Mrs. Gravenhorst reminded the board members of the discussion that took place during the September meeting regarding visits to classes by the trustees that was planned for the November meeting in Chicago.
Reports were made by Mr. Begovich and Mr. Lawless concerning current issues of concern to students on the campuses. Both stressed the problems experienced by students seeking financial assistance from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC). President Ikenberry added to these comments by suggesting that Mr. Lawless draft a resolution for the board's consideration concerning the ISAC's determination that the Chicago campus did not qualify for the designation of residential campus, thus preventing students at that campus from qualifying for the same amount of assistance as students attending campuses with such a designation.
The board considered the following reports and recommendations from the president of the University.
