Biographical Note for University of Illinois. University Senate Conference :

The University Senate Conference, formerly the Senate Coordinating Council, was established in 1957.1 The name of the Council was changed in 1970. The University Senate Conference is comprised of six representatives from each of the three campus Senates: Urbana-Champaign, Chicago Medical Center, and Chicago Circle.2 The Conference seeks to promote agreement and consistency among the Senates. If the Conference finds a matter acted upon by one of the Senates to be of concern to one or more of the other Senates, it refers the matter to the other Senates. The Conference sends proposals of the Senates, as well as any additional recommendations of its own, to the President for transmission to the Board of Trustees.3
