BOARD OF TRUSTEES
These modifications have been endorsed by the campus senates and the University Senates Conference. The vice president for academic affairs now recommends these changes. I concur. (In the text below, deletions are interlineated and additions are in italics.) ARTICLE IV. EMPLOYMENT POLICIES SECTION 1. TERMS OF EMPLOYMENT OF ACADEMIC AND ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF (a) The terms of employment of the academic and administrative staff, as defined in the University of Illinois Statutes, shall be explicitly stated by the nominating officer, indicating that services are required for: (1) The academic year, which shall consist of two semesters, at the UrbanaChampaign campus or three quarters at the Chicago campus. (2) Twelve months, including allowable vacation. (3) The summer session. (4) Other stated periods. (b) The teaching staff shall be appointed with services required for either the academic year or for twelve months. Those who are appointed for the academic year shall be free for other employment, either in the University or elsewhere, during the summer months, except that they shall report for any departmental meetings before registration and render all services requested of them in connection with registration and the preparation of materials and reports for the academic year. No vacation benefits accrue on appointments with services required for the academic year. (c) The administrative, research, and extension staffs generally shall be appointed with services required for twelve months, including allowable vacation. Allowable vacations for those appointed for twelve months shall consist of 24 working days per appointment year. Vacation shall be arranged to accommodate the convenience of the staff member and the requirements of the unit. Vacation may be accumulated up to a maximum of 48 working days. During a partial year appointment, vacation shall be prorated. Vacations taken during the holiday recesses, other than the actual holidays recognized by the University, shall be considered a part of the annual vacation allowance of 24 days. Holidays recognized by the University shall be New Year's, Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and such other days as may be determined by the President of the University. (d) Minimum salaries shall be determined by the Board of Trustees for the various ranks upon recommendation of the President of the University. The minimum for twelve month appointments shall be two-ninths greater than the minimum for academic year appointments. (e) Procedures for the determination of compensation for services for periods less than the full academic year shall be approved by the appropriate Chancellor and by the President. (f) Members of the staff required to render services during the academic year may be employed in the Summer Session, or to perform research or other services during a period not exceeding two months, and receive, for each month of such service, additional compensation at the monthly rate of one-ninth of the full time rate paid for services required during the preceding academic year. Such employment may be for longer periods during the summer only upon the advance approval of the Chancellor. Staff members required to render services for twelve months, with allowable vacation, shall not receive additional compensation for services rendered during the summer. For staff members rendering services partly on a twelve-months' basis and partly on an academic year basis, this regulation applies only to the twelve months' portion.
