The Board of Regents has recently received an informal

opinion from the Office of the Attorney General that

meetings of the Board, except for personnel meetings,

shall be open to the public and Press but that Commit-

tee meetings, which each involve only some members of

the Board, and at which no final Board action can be

taken (only recommendations to the Board can be develop-

ed), may be open or closed at the discretion of the

Board.



Even though this is the case the Board members desire

to bring information concerning the activities, oper-

ation and policies of the Universities more directly

and fully to the public.



In order to accomplish this, it is my recommendation

to the Board that all Committee meetings of the Board

of Regents, except those of the Administrative and

Personnel Committee, shall ordinarily be open to at-

tendance by the public and the Press.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

unanimously that the Committee meetings of the Board of

10. Transfer of Funds

furnish an amount equal to 1/9 of the total provided by the

Federal Government. Mr. Humphrey explained that for the

Spring semester, 1967, we are requesting $2,000 for the

Nurses Program and $65,000 for NDSL; therefore, $222.22 is

required for the Nursing Program and $7,222.22 for NDSL.

Mr. Humphrey recommended that $7,444.44 be transferred from

1-51-7002, Alice Dimmitt, E. I., for this purpose.



MOTION by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the above fund transfer be approved.



Under the same conditions, Mr. Humphrey explained that NSU

requests $5,967.82 for the Nurses Program and $23,645.33

for NDSL; therefore, $663,09 is required for the Nurses Pro-

gram and $2,627.25 for NSDL. Mr. Humphrey recommended that

$3,290.34 be transferred from 1-61-5001, David Russell Loan

Fund, for this purpose.

without dissent that the above fund transfer be approved.



President Armstrong recommended that the following transfer

of funds be approved:

Southern University to Chancellor's Discretionary

Fund, Nevada Southern University. The Chancellor

Installation Gifts account is now inactive and this

transfer will close the account.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

unanimously that the above fund transfer be approved.



President Armstrong recommended that the following transfers

of more than $2,000 be approved by the Board:



#151 $10,104 from various classified salary accounts to the

classified salary accounts with a deficit and the

Contingency Reserve. These figures represent classi-

fied salary savings for 1966-67. Attached is a list

of accounts effected.

July, 1966 (transfer #21) $3,000 was transferred from

the Postage account to Miscellaneous, N. O. C. to

provide necessary funds to pay water taxes and miscel-

laneous charges. This transfer reimburses the Postage

account and provides needed funds for 1966-67 in that

account.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the above fund transfers be approved.



President Armstrong also reported the following transfers of

less than $2,000:

Board for the 1967-69 period, made the following statement

as his charge to the members of the Board and the Adminis-

tration:



"It seems imperative that we, as soon as possible, hold

discussions on long range intent planning for both Campuses

to prevent expensive and wasteful duplication of staff,

equipment and faculty for proposed programs that might de-

velop simultaneously on both Campuses where they would only

in the foreseeable future be realized on one. I wish to

request now that the Regents and the Administration, includ-

ing the President, the Chancellors, the Director of DRI, and

others, bring consideration and discussion of such long

range planning to the next meeting of the Board, together

with some specific suggestions for Board consideration."



The meeting adjourned at 12:00 noon.
