By Elaine Belsito UIC News Bureau University trustees approved the integration of Sangamon State University into the UI, effective July 1. Trustees gave their final OK to the new UI at Springfield at their June 8 meeting, held in Chicago. While the Springfield campus will follow the policies of the UI, some procedures will be phased in gradually. A committee will be established at the Springfield campus this fall to begin revising academic policies to fit with the rest of the university. This committee will include Springfield's vice chancellor and associate vice chancellor for academic affairs; faculty representatives from each of the four major academic divisions of the Springfield campus and its library; a representative for long-range academic planning; and three representatives from university central administration. The phase-in process will probably take about two years, said Sylvia Manning, vice president for academic affairs. State appropriations to the Springfield campus and the rest of the university will remain separate for this fiscal year. Springfield's payroll system will remain the same for at least this year, along with sick leave and other employee policies. For the next fiscal year, the university will develop a budget that covers all three campuses. In other action, the board approved: * Changing the name of the UIUC department of physiology and biophysics to that of molecular and integrative physiology. The new name more accurately conveys the nature of the training program and faculty research. * Establishing a Center for Biophysics and Computational Biology within the School of Life Sciences at UIUC. The advantages of a separate administrative structure for biophysics - which has grown dramatically - have been recognized by several review committees since the mid-1970s, and this proposal is the outgrowth of that recognition. * Deleting the undergraduate curriculum and bachelor's degree in business education due to steadily declining enrollment. Only four UIUC students completed student teaching in 1993, and only one did so in 1994. * Discontinuing the UIUC's Center for Instructional Research and Curriculum Evaluation in the College of Education because of decreased funding and activity levels. The remaining resources and purposes of CIRCE will be absorbed into a reconfigured, expanded Bureau of Educational Research. * Retaining the master of arts degree in public administration at UIUC, reversing the board's Nov. 12, 1993, decision to discontinue the program. Chancellor Michael Aiken sought advice about the desirability of revitalizing the program, and the response has been positive. Until a revised program is established and approved, no new students will be admitted. * Amending a lease agreement with Flightstar Corp. after suspending the Staff Air Transportation Service at Willard Airport as of June 30. Flighstar will provide the same service as Staff Air at essentially the same price. Flightstar also will use two of the UI's Cessna 310s for the air service, and will lease hangar space and cover all operational costs.
