In a major overhaul of the University of the District of Columbia Board of Trustees, Mayor Marion Barry has filled nine vacancies with his own appointees and has reappointed only two members of the current board.
Among the new appointees are Oliver T. Carr, a real estate developer who is president of the Board of Trade Lorraine Whitlock, a retired teacher who was Barry's compaign coordinator last year in Ward 7, and David Abramson, president of a local advertising firm which prepared advertisements for Barry's campaign.
The two members reappointed to the board are Ronald H. Brown, head of the Washington office of the National Urban League, who has served AS THE UDC board chairman since 1976, and Marjorie Parker, a former member of the D.C. City Council and the board treasurer.
All the appointments, which are for four- or five-year terms, must be confirmed by a majority vote of the City Council.
"the trustees set policy for the city university, which was formed two years ago by a merger of D.C. Teachers College, Federal City College and the Washington Technical Institute. Last year the university enrolled about 13,600 students and had a budget of $63.4 million, of which $45.9 million came from local taxpayers.
Others nominated by Barry, from a list of 41 names presented by an independent nominating committee, are:
Lawrence Brailsford, presendent of a community development consulting firm.
Inez Casiano, a Labor Department official who has been a leader of the National Organization for Women and the National Puerto Rican Coalition.
Daniel Fivel, associate professor of physics at the University of Maryland and a former member of the D.C. Democratic State Committee.
Jesse King, an education specialist with the U.S. Public Health Service.
N. Joyce Payne, a program specialist for the National Adversory council on Women's Educational Programs in the U.S. Department of Health, Education and welfare.
Estelle 1w. Taylor, professor of English and chairman of the English department at Howard University.
Barry's assistant press secretary Kwame Holman said the mayor had issued no statement about the nominations. Several persons connected to the university said the new list probably indicates no change in policy but does mean that Barry is putting "his people" on the board.
Former Mayor Walter Washington tried to fill six of the post shortly after the trustees' terms expired in May 1978 but the City Council moved slowly on the nominations and then shelved them after Washington lost the D.C. Democratic primary. The terms of the other five trustees expired in May this year.
The board continued to operate because by law members remain in office until their successors are sworn in.
Brown is the only person nominated by Washington last year whom Barry appointed again.
Barry's list of nominees includes seven blacks, three whites and one Hispanic; there are three residents each of Wards 2 and 3, and one resident from each of the city's other six wards except for Ward 1. No Ward 1 residents were included on the list of nominees.
In addition to the 11 trustees appointed by the mayor, the university board includes three alumni representatives and one student.
Trustees are reimbursed for expenses up to $4.000 a year.
