     Charleston Campus site to the Las Vegas/Clark County Library

     Association for the sum of $1 per year for construction of

     a branch Library.  Mrs. Whitley seconded.  Motion carried.



 5.  Approved EPSCoR Program and Recommendations



     Chancellor Dawson presented a review of the current UNS

     Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research

     (EPSCoR) Program and the National Science Foundation's (NSF)

     proposed changes for the program.  He stated that in 1986

     Nevada was awarded the NSF grant for EPSCoR.  The program

     has greatly strengthened Nevada's scientific posture and

     contributes directly to the State's economic growth and di-

     versification.  Chancellor Dawson introduced Dr. Art

     Anderson, Chairman of the Nevada EPSCoR Executive Committee

     and Dr. David Lightner, EPSCoR Project Director.



     In his report, Dr. Lightner stated:  "the NSF is responsi-

     ble for developing and maintaining the health of Science

     and Engineering throughout the United States.  This res-

     ponsibility covers not only those states that have been

     traditionally strong in Science and Engineering, but also

     extends to those that have been less competitive in obtain-

     ing federal research and development support.  EPSCoR was

     initiated in 1980 to assist these states to reach a higher

     level of competitiveness.



     "The NSF five-year $3,000,000 grant to the State of Nevada

     through the UNS commenced in Autumn 1986, with the required

     matching funds:  $3,000,000 of new money, and an additional

     $3,000,000 from the UNS through UNR, UNLV and DRI in-kind

     match.  Nevada EPSCoR is designed to build nationally prom-

     inent research programs with Scientists who can attract

     funding from federal sources, to help bring the Science and

     Engineering base of the cited Campuses up to a level of

     national competitiveness and thus provide the educational

     incentives for achieving economic diversification in our

     State.



     "Nevada EPSCoR had just started its fourth year, with pro-

     grams funded at DRI (Biological Sciences, Social Sciences),

     UNLV (Laser Physics) and UNR (Chemistry and Chemical Phys-

     ics, Insect Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Biology) and

     UNS (Women in Research).  Some of the programs have broad

     interests and interact with other Departments, e. g., DRI's

     Biological Sciences Center draws faculty from UNLV's Biol-

     ogy Department and from UNR's Biochemistry and Range, Wild-

     life and Forestry Departments.  To this extent, a Statewide

     program in Great Basin Plant Biology and Ecology is being

     developed.  The Women in Research Program identifies women

     target Scientists at UNR, UNLV and DRI for grant writing

     seminars and sponsors extended research visits to distin-

     guished laboratories in the U. S.  Nevada EPSCoR has brought

     in 25 new research faculty to its programs during the past

     three years; more are scheduled to be added over the next

     several years.  The EPSCoR faculty brought in over $6 mil-

     lion in research grants during the past three years.  Nearly

     $2 million in new state-of-the-art equipment and facilities

     has been added during this period.



     "The NSF intends to fund a new round of EPSCoR for an addi-

     tional five year cycle starting in January 1992, with pro-

     posals due in January, 1991.  On the strength of its current

     success, we expect that Nevada EPSCoR will be ready to pro-

     pose new interdisciplinary centers and programs to the NSF

     for the next funding cycle."



     Dr. Lightner invited the members of the Board of Regents to

     meet the six Principal Investigators and to review their

     projects on display in the Board room.



(Mrs. Whitley left the meeting.)



     Dr. Anderson informed Board of Regents that Nevada EPSCoR

     has achieved ten years of success with the conviction that

     excellence can be developed in the State of Nevada.  The

     next round in receiving the EPSCoR grant begins in two

     years, but the planning should begin at this time.  The

     next round will bring larger funding opportunities to

     Nevada.  Dr. Anderson stated that the State will be required

     to continue to match the EPSCoR grant in the next round.

     The grant proposal will probably be $1.5 million over the

     three years.  Currently, the institutions have exceeded

     their pledges from initial beginnings.  Competition for

     this grant is across 17 states.  The purpose in obtaining

     the grant is to provide State resource development in

     Science and Engineering.



     Addressing the future of EPSCoR, Dr. Anderson stated that

     the grant will provide growth in human resource require-

     ments; involvement of women, minorities, and new sources;

     the formation of a coalition for EPSCoR funding; expansion

     to other agencies; and an organization for the established

     EPSCoR structures.



     Dr. Anderson suggested the following recommendations to the

     Board of Regents:



     1)  Prepare for next NSF round at this time; and



     2)  Prepare for an enlarged role by expanding the role of

         the EPSCoR committee, including Governor sponsorship,

         broadening the political and economic base, and parti-

         cipating in the political, private and academic sectors.



     Dr. Hammargren stated that Nevada has gained enormously

     from the EPSCoR grant and that other agencies will be in-

     volved in the future with the program.



     Chairman Gallagher added that Nevada has exceeded the orig-

     inal expectations.  In one respect, this program has foster-

     ed competition between the two Universities.  She expressed

     her pleasure in having Dr. Anderson as the Chairman of this

     project, and stated that he has communicated much enthusiasm

     for this project.



     President Crowley concurred with Chairman Gallagher's state-

     ments, adding a suggestion that the present program should

     be institutionalized in order to receive funding from the

     State.



     President Maxson stated that the EPSCoR Program has accom-

     plished much for the UNLV programs it utilizes, and has

     brought out the talents of UNLV Scientists.  Dr. Anderson

     stated that the Scientists are what made the EPSCoR Program

     successful.



     President Taranik recognized Dr. Anderson's contributions

     to the program along with DRI's Foundation Board of Trustees

     and DRI's National Advisory Board.  EPSCoR had made a major

     impact at DRI by creating a truly competitive program for

     UNS's Scientists.  He stated that it is important for Nevada

     to have a larger scope in order to be more competitive and

     to obtain more resources from the Legislature.



     President Crowley extended his gratitude to Dr. Lightner who

     had led these efforts throughout the University of Nevada

     System.



     Dr. Hammargren moved approval of the EPSCoR Program and its

     recommendations.  Mr. Klaich seconded.  Motion carried.

11.  Information Only:  Addition to UNS Code, Community College

     Titles



     First reading.  Action will be taken at the February 22-23,

     1990 meeting.



     The Community College Presidents request an addition to the

     UNS Code, Section 5.10.2, Community College Titles, which

     would change the designation of title for Community College

     instruction faculty, as contained in Ref. H, filed in the

     Regents' Office.  This change of title is to be optional

     for each Community College Campus.  If approved by the Board

     of Regents, instructional faculty will begin their employ-

     ment in nontenured positions as "Instructor" and, upon the

     award of tenure, receive the title "Community College Pro-

     fessor".



     Dr. Eardley questioned the Community College Presidents

     about the rationale of this change in the UNS Code.



     President Gwaltney responded that this is a social change.

     For instance, when introductions are being made, the term

     "Instructor" is the lowest term used for a faculty member,

     denoting a lower status.  As it is written now in the UNS

     Code, there is no provision for upgrading the teaching

     faculty's title.



     President Meacham stated that this change of title is to be

     optional for each Community College Campus.  CCCC has parti-

     cipated in the discussions, but is concerned about potential

     funding misinterpretations.  President Meacham stated that

     he does not want this change in rank to be associated with

     dollar amounts.



     President Remington responded that a negative connotation is

     conveyed when the term "Instructor" is used, especially if

     this person has served at the Community College for a

     lengthy time.  The term is also negative in the private

     section (i. e., financial institutions when qualifying for

     a loan the term is not accepted well).  Status should be

     associated with academic ranks.



     President Calabro reported that the WNCC Faculty Senate is

     satisfied with the new language.



12.  Information Only:  Regents Bylaws Change



     First reading.  Action will be taken at the February 22-23,

     1990 meeting.



     Chancellor Dawson requests a change in Board of Regents By-

     laws, Title I, Article VI, Section 4, Special Committees

     as follows:



     Special Committees



         Section 4.  Special committees, with specific ad hoc

         committees purposes and fixed terms of one year or less,

         may be appointed from time to time as deemed necessary

         by the Board.  The Chairman of the Board shall appoint

         the members of a special committee and its Chairman.

         The Chairman of the Board may participate as a member

         of a special committee, unless it consists of only one

         member, but may not serve as its Chairman.



13.  Approved the Naming of a Residence Hall, UNLV



     Approved the naming of a Residence Hall at UNLV, the William

     Boyd Residence Hall.



     Mrs. Sparks moved approval to name a UNLV Residence Hall

     the William Boyd Residence Hall.  Mr. Rogich seconded.

     Motion carried.



14.  Report on Campus Radio Station, KUNV



     President Maxson introduced Mr. Rob Rosenthal, KUNV General

     Manager, who provided a report on UNLV's Campus radio sta-

     tion, KUNV.



     Mr. Rosenthal reported that KUNV is a licensed non-profit,

     non-commercial, educational radio station.  It has a 15,000

     watt transmitter in Henderson.  The signal reaches all of

     Las Vegas Valley.  A staff of nearly 70 keeps the station

     on the air 24 hours a day, year round.  The staff consists

     of three full-time personnel, a number of student managers,

     several faculty members, and dozens of students and commu-

     nity volunteers.  Funding is provided by student fees, small

     business and corporate support, listener contributions, sta-

     tion promotional activities, and the State of Nevada.  In

     April the station will have been in existence for 9 years.



     Mr. Rosenthal reported that KUNV provides an excellent op-

     portunity for students, faculty and community members to

     learn radio through hands-on experience.  KUNV provides

     training in both the technical and business/managerial side

     of radio broadcasting to compliment classroom learning.

     Many who have participated in KUNV's operations have gone

     on to careers in broadcasting and related fields.



15.  Approved Lease of Land, WNCC



     Approved the concept of leasing two to four acres of WNCC

     Campus to a private party with WNCC to explore alternatives.

     The vendor wants to construct and operate a Child Care Cen-

     ter on the property.  The anticipated long-term lease would

     require the party to construct buildings and other struc-

     tures on the leased land which would revert to System owner-

     ship at the end of the lease term, which is twenty years.



     Dr. Derby stated that she had attended the planning dis-

     cussions and felt that this was a good example of community

     partnership.



     Dr. Eardley suggested that the insurance aspect be explored

     before finalization of the lease.



     Mr. Foley moved approval of the concept of leasing two to

     four acres of WNCC Campus property to a vendor to construct

     and operate a Child Care Center on the property.  Dr. Derby

     seconded.  Motion carried.



16.  Report and Recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee to Review

     Collective Bargaining Regulations



     A report and recommendations of the ad hoc Committee to Re-

     view Collective Bargaining Regulations meeting, held Decem-

     ber 20, 1989, were made by Regent Daniel Klaich, Chairman.



     The full Committee met December 20, 1989 at the Claude

     Howard Administration building in Reno, Nevada to review

     the Board of Regents' Collective Bargaining Regulations.

     Richard Brown, in his capacity as Vice Chairman of the UNR

     Faculty Senate, James Richardson and Robert Rose of the

     Nevada Faculty Alliance, and Leslie Fritz of the Nevada

     State Education Association also attended the meeting.

     The Committee used the draft regulations prepared by the

     General Counsel and distributed to the Regents, the Chancel-

     lor, the institutional Presidents and the Faculty Senate

     Chairs on November 10, 1989 as the basis for its discussions

     and recommendations.  The Committee determined that rather

     than discuss the numerous proposed changes to the Collective

     Bargaining Regulations in detail and voting on them one-by-

     one, it would discuss the policy issues raised by the pro-

     posed changes and make specific policy recommendations to

     the Board of Regents.  Upon adoption by the Board of any

     policy recommendation made by the Committee, General Counsel

     would be directed to draft complying language.  Implicit in

     this decision and in subsequent discussions to the Commit-

     tee was the decision that proposed draft changes to the

     Collective Bargaining Regulations unaffected by the Commit-

     tee's policy recommendations would be recommended for ap-

     proval by the Board.



     The Committee made the following recommendations:



      1)  That the above-mentioned draft regulations, as modified

          and rewritten in accordance with the recommendations

          made by the Committee and approved or modified by the

          Board of Regents, be adopted by the Board of Regents.



      2)  That the draft Collective Bargaining Regulations be

          rewritten to provide for a simplified procedure for

          establishing a separate Community College bargaining

          unit by providing for the circulation of a collective

          bargaining election petition only among those profes-

          sional employees of a Community College or Colleges

          interested in establishing such a separate bargaining

          unit, and with a deadline period prior to such an

          election to allow time to review petitions from em-

          ployees.  In this regard, the Committee also recommends

          the retention of provisions of the draft Collective

          Bargaining Regulations prohibiting, except during cer-

          tain limited periods, other Community College profes-

          sional employees from joining the collective bargain-

          ing unit during the lifetime of a collective bargain-

          ing agreement, and prohibiting the removal of the

          professional employees of a Community College from the

          separate Community College bargaining unit once the

          professional employees have voted to join the unit.

          Finally, the Committee recommends that when the pro-

          fessional employees of a Community College subsequent-

          ly submit an election petition for the purpose of

          joining the separate Community Colleges bargaining

          unit (after that unit has already been established),

          the election be limited to the question of whether or

          not the professional employees of that Community Col-

          lege wish to be represented by the same employee organ-

          ization representing professional employees who are

          already in the separate Community College bargaining

          unit.  The Committee declares its understanding and

          intent that the means by which the professional em-

          ployees of a Community College may decide to be repre-

          sented by another employee organization (other than the

          one already representing them in the separate Community

          College bargaining unit) is through the decertification

          and certification election procedures established in

          Collective Bargaining Regulations.



      3)  That the draft Regulations be rewritten to specifically

          name the American Arbitration Association as the neu-

          tral third party organization which will conduct elec-

          tions, undertake medication and carry out nonbinding

          factfinding under the Collective Bargaining Regula-

          tions.



      4)  That the term "in good faith" be restored to the pro-

          visions of Section 18, Paragraph 1 of the draft Col-

          lective Bargaining Regulations.



      5)  That the current provision of the existing Collective

          Bargaining Regulations specifying the due process pro-

          visions of a collective bargaining agreement, or the

          University of Nevada System Code, whichever is appli-

          cable, for the termination or suspension of profes-

          sional employees engaged in an illegal strike action

          be rewritten into the draft Collective Bargaining

          Regulations, with the proviso that should such due

          process provisions provide for the participation of

          professional employees in due process hearings and

          should the professional employees of an institution

          in which there is an illegal strike occurring fail to

          participate in such hearings, then professional em-

          ployees from other University of Nevada System insti-

          tutions may be utilized for particpation in such due

          process hearings.



      6)  That the draft Collective Bargaining Regulations be

          rewritten to restore the provisions of the existing

          Collective Bargaining Regulations providing for damages

          against the University of Nevada System in the event of

          an illegal lockout of employees, and to remove the ref-

          erence to personal liability in the provision of the

          draft Collective Bargaining Regulations providing for

          damages under certain circumstances against an employee

          organization's Officers and employees in the event of

          an illegal strike.



      7)  That the second sentence of Section 9 of the draft

          Collective Bargaining Regulations be rewritten as

          follows:



          No provision of any bargaining agreement negotiated

          pursuant to this chapter which requires the expendi-

          ture of funds for any purpose shall be effective un-

          less and until funds are appropriated and are made

          available to the System by the Nevada State Legisla-

          ture.



      8)  That Section 17, Paragraph 1(b) of the draft Collective

          Bargaining Regulations be rewritten as follows:



          A comparison shall be made of the annual income and

          benefits of the professional employees in question with

          the annual income and benefits of professional employ-

          ees with like or similar qualifications, skills, train-

          ing and experience performing the same or similar work

          under the same or similar working conditions in compar-

          able institutions.



      9)  That the term "Administrator" in Section 2 of the draft

          Collective Bargaining Regulations be rewritten to re-

          move all references to Department Chairs or Heads, As-

          sistant or Associate Directors, Directors, Assistant or

          Associate Coordinators, Coordinators and professional

          employees in the University of Nevada Press and the

          University of Nevada System Computing Services; that

          the term "managerial employee" in Section 2 of the

          draft Collective Bargaining Regulations be rewritten

          to delete subparagraphs (a) and (b), as well as the

          words "a major role" in subparagraph (c); and that the

          term "supervisory employee" in Section 2 of the draft

          Collective Bargaining Regulations be rewritten to re-

          quire the existence of two or more of the four cri-

          teria defining the functions of employees covered by

          the term.  In addition, the Committee recommends that

          the draft Collective Bargaining Regulations be re-

          written to provide that Department Chairs or Heads not

          already excluded by the provisions of the Collective

          Bargaining Regulations, and those employees performing

          duties functionally equivalent to Department Chairs or

          Heads, be permitted to choose whether or not they wish

          to be part of the collective bargaining unit.



     10)  That Section 13, Paragraph 1 be rewritten to add the

          deduction of dues and employee organization rights as

          contained in Chapter 288 of NRS as additional topics

          for mandatory bargaining, and that the topic listed as

          "procedures for reduction in work force" be rewritten

          to read:  "procedures for reduction or addition in work

          force", and with a clarification of the opportunity of

          the parties to voluntarily discuss other nonlisted sub-

          jects.  The Committee also recommends that Section 13,

          Paragraph 3 be clarified to indicate that the provi-

          sions of the paragraph are mandated by the Nevada Con-

          stitution and that it covers the managerial decisions

          of the Board of Regents except as modified in nego-

          tiations regarding the mandatory topics of negotiation

          contained in Paragraph 1.



     11)  That the draft Collective Bargaining Regulations be

          rewritten to provide that ballots for a collective

          bargaining election shall be mailed to all eligible

          voters, with the voters given the option of returning

          the ballots by mail or voting in person at designated

          voting places at designated dates and times.  The en-

          tire process would be administered by the American

          Arbitration Association.  The Committee was unable to

          make a recommendation on the issue of whether or not

          a collective bargaining agent would be selected on the

          basis of a majority vote of all eligible voters, a

          majority of only those voting, or some other basis.

          The Committee decided to refer the matter to the Board

          of Regents as a whole for its decision.



     12)  That the draft Collective Bargaining Regulations be

          rewritten to provide that the Chancellor may make a

          determination, based on a good faith evaluation, that

          a decertification election at certain limited times

          is in order, with a referral of his determination to

          the American Arbitration Association for its advice

          to the Board of Regents on whether the Chancellor's

          determination is justified, and with the Board of

          Regents taking action on the matter only if the Amer-

          ican Arbitration Association agrees that the Chancel-

          lor's action is justified.  The Committee also recom-

          mends that the voting standard for decertifying an

          employee organization should be consistent, and there-

          fore identical, with the voting standard for certifying

          an employee organization as a collective bargaining

          representative.



     13)  That the provisions of Section 1, Paragraph 3 of the

          Collective Bargaining Regulations be deleted.



     14)  That these recommendations and policy decisions embod-

          ied in them be adopted by the Board of Regents, become

          effective immediately, and that General Council be

          directed to rewrite the affected portions of the draft

          Collective Bargaining Regulations in accordance with

          these recommendations, with subsequent ratification

          of the modifications to the draft Regulations to be

          made by the Board of Regents at a later meeting upon

          their completion.



     Regent Carolyn Sparks made a minority report for the record

     that she did not agree with the April 6-7, 1989 decision of

     the Board of Regents to create a separate Community College

     collective bargaining unit.



     The Committee wishes to commend all persons participating

     in this review for their hard work, input and cooperation

     towards achieving a successful outcome.



     Dr. Hammargren moved acceptance of the ad hoc Committee to

     review Collective Bargaining Regulations' proposed draft

     with the modifications set forth by the Committee.  Dr.

     Derby seconded.



     WNCC Faculty Senate Chairman Mike Hardie requested, on

     behalf of the Faculty Senate Chairs, that the proposed new

     language be in exact final draft form and submitted to the

     Board of Regents at its February meeting for consideration.



     In addition to the draft report of the Committee, Mr. Hardie

     pointed out three items of concern to the Faculty Senate

     Chairs, and asked for consideration prior to the final sub-

     mission of the new language being presented to the Board of

     Regents:



     1)  In Title 4, Chapter 4, Section 2.10 of the proposed new

         language, the definition of "managerial employee" should

         include the phrase "professional employee as defined in

         Section 2.13".  This insertion will ensure that pro-

         fessionals managing part-time Instructors are not ex-

         cluded from the bargaining unit.



     2)  In Title 4, Chapter 4, Section 2.15 of the proposed new

         language, the definition of "supervisory employee"

         be removed along with its reference in Section 2.2.

         Although this language comes from a Connecticut statute,

         Section 2.7 on confidential employees and Section 2.10

         on managerial employees will eliminate Administrators

         who do not carry titles listed in Section 2.2.



     3)  In Title 4, Chapter 4, Section 13.1 of the proposed new

         language, the scope of collective bargaining should in-

         clude the phrase "academic advisory rights".  Although

         Mr. Klaich believes that this item was covered during

         the informal discussions about Section 12, the Faculty

         Senate Chairs recommend that it be formalized in Section

         13.



     Mr. Klaich agreed with the Faculty Senate Chairs' first re-

     quest, but stated he wished to retain the current language

     for numbers 2 and 3.  Mrs. Sparks concurred.



     Dr. Hammargren moved approval to amend the motion to include

     the insertion of "professional employee as defined in Sec-

     tion 2.13" under Title 4, Chapter 4, Section 2.10, Manager-

     ial Employee (Faculty Senate Chairs' first request).  Mrs.

     Sparks seconded.



     Dr. Eardley requested more time and rationale in consider-

     ing the changes.  Mr. Klaich explained that the Board of

     Regents should not add "academic advisory rights" to the

     proposed new language because that is only another name

     for "shared governance".  If UNS were to enter into collec-

     tive bargaining, a chief negotiator would conduct the ne-

     gotiations and Regents would not have direct discussions

     with faculty on these matters.  He urged the Board not to

     give up its rights to be involved in such collegial dis-

     cussion.  This would be a critical interchange.  Chairman

     Gallagher reiterated that if UNS were to enter into collec-

     tive bargaining, it would rule out discussions with Faculty

     Senates regarding academic matters and cut off the inter-

     action now enjoyed with faculty and Faculty Senates.



     Mrs. Dru Raney, CCCC faculty, stated that the UNS Code can

     be changed within a few months, and shared governance could

     possibly be damaged.  The faculty are very concerned about

     this change.



     UNR Vice President Dennis Brown, stated that the University

     view of collective bargaining concerns broader issues than

     those listed.



     Mr. Rogich questioned how the American Arbitration Associa-

     tion (AAA) was selected as the neutral third party organiza-

     tion.  Mr. Klaich responded that AAA is a uniformly recog-

     nized group and most widely used.



     Mr. Mike Mc Farlane, NNCC Faculty Senate Chairman, stated

     that he felt the ad hoc Committee on Community College

     Faculty Relations wanted shared governance included in the

     list.  Without accepting these changes proposed by the

     Faculty Senate Chairs, the Board of Regents is taking away

     major issues and hindering the process.  In response, Dr.

     Derby reminded the Board that the Committee's intent was

     to address Community College issues in order to avoid

     collective bargaining.  She felt that the Faculty Senate

     Chairs' proposed changes are not a good enough reason to

     include governance on the list.  Mr. Mc Farlane disagreed,

     stating that if the Community College Faculty Relations'

     recommendations are not taken, then it can't bargain for

     the Community College concerns.  Mr. Klaich agreed, but

     reminded the Faculty Senate Chairs that this would hinder

     open discussions between the Board of Regents and the Fac-

     ulty Senates.



     Motion carried.



     The Committee referred the question of the voting standard

     for the certification of an employee organization to the

     full Board (referred to in recommendation 11 of the above

     report).



     Mr. Klaich explained that the Committee voted on three

     different motions and all failed for lack of majority vote

     by the Committee.



     Dr. Jim Richardson, NFA representative, complimented Mr.

     Klaich and the Committee for holding a fair meeting on

     December 20 and for completing the task set before them in

     limited time.  He suggested that the Board of Regents ac-

     cept the voting standard of the majority of those voting.

     This is the voting standard utilized by the State of Nevada

     and the National Labor Relations Board.  He also felt that

     the ballot should be mailed to all faculty eligible to vote.

     The faculty can either vote in person or by absentee bal-

     lot.  He referred to Chapter 288 of NRS which states that

     50% of those eligible who turn in signed cards constitutes

     the majority.



     Dr. Alan Balboni, CCCC faculty, relayed his concerns that

     the Regents' previous vote precludes collective bargaining.

     The instructional issues and Faculty Senates will not be

     addressed under the Regulations.  However, he stated the

     faculty should be given a chance to vote on collective

     bargaining.  He stated he felt the voting standard of

     those eligible to vote is not the way it is done in the

     United States and he requested that the Board of Regents

     give the faculty a chance and make the voting standard

     that of a simple majority.



     Dr. Barbara Nelson, NFA President, noting that several

     members on the Board were up for re-election, stated that

     if the voting standard in America were those eligible to

     vote, then those up for re-election would not win because

     many people do not vote.  She stressed this voting process

     is not the way Americans vote today.  She stated that fac-

     ulty voting privileges should not be different from the way

     Americans vote.



     Mrs. Sparks disagreed with Dr. Nelson, stating that Ameri-

     cans have the right to vote and an obligation to vote.  She

     offered that in her election bid there was over an 80% voter

     turnout, and felt that Dr. Nelson's remarks were incorrect.



     Dr. Hammargren moved that the voting standard be the same

     as that contained in NRS Chapter 288, which is 50% plus 1

     of those eligible to vote who turn in cards (membership

     cards only, not a ballot).



     Motion failed for lack of a second.



     Dr. Derby moved that the voting standard for collective

     bargaining be a majority of those voting.  Mr. Klaich

     seconded.



     There was a lengthy discussion regarding the clarification

     of the motion.  President Gwaltney stated that the majority

     vote is the American way of voting.  He noted, for example,

     that consitutional amendments required a 2/3 vote for pas-

     sage.  Regulations authorizing collective bargaining involv-

     ed important changes in established procedures.  He ques-

     tioned the Board of Regents about whether it was their de-

     sire to change the voting patterns in a matter so important.



     Mr. Hardie stated that Nevada is a right-to-work State in

     which the voting standard is the majority eligible to vote,

     and reiterated that collective bargaining will affect the

     economic welfare of UNS.  He clarified that an uncast vote

     would be considered a "no" vote.



     A roll call vote was taken:



         Motion failed.



         Aye - Regents Derby, Foley and Klaich



         No  - Regents Eardley, Hammargren, Rogich, Sparks,

               Gallagher.



               (Regent Whitley was absent.)



     Mrs. Sparks moved that the voting standard be 50% plus 1

     of those eligible to vote.  Mr. Rogich seconded.



     A roll call vote was taken:



         Motion carried.



         Aye - Regents Derby, Eardley, Foley, Hammargren, Rogich,

               Sparks and Gallagher.



         No  - Regent Klaich



               (Regent Whitley was absent.)



     Chairman Gallagher thanked the ad hoc Committee members and

     Mr. Klaich for serving as Chairman of the Committee, stating

     that the Committee took on a very important assignment and

     completed its task in a timely manner.



     Dr. Richardson urged the Board of Regents to accept NRS

     Chapter 288 concerning signed cards of more than 50%, and

     to avoid the election process.



The open meeting recessed at 5:55 P.M. and reconvened at 8:05

A.M., Friday, January 12, 1990 with all Regents present.



17.  Regents' Workshop



     The Board met in a workshop session in the Fireside Room,

     Donald Moyer Student Union, UNLV.  UNS Facilities Master

     Planning was the topic of the workshop.  Chancellor Dawson

     introduced consultants who presented a report and recommen-

     dations:  Mr. Steve Ehninger, Architect/Programmer and

     Project Manager; Mr. Gene Cross, University of California -

     Berkeley; and Mr. Bruce Jensen, University of Utah.



     The consultants reviewed the individual Campus Master Plans,

     which they described as very diverse.  They then developed

     a standard approach and asked each Campus to rework facil-

     ities planning data in this context.  The standards are

     basic principles on which UNS can build for the future.



     In an effort to improve future physical Master Planning

     within UNS, the consultants submitted the following overall

     recommendations and observations of the collective physical

     Master Plans of the seven institutions and 11 sites that

     comprise the University of Nevada System:



      1)  Continue to utilize the Nevada Board of Regents' "Phys-

          ical Master Plan Guidelines" for all future Master

          Plan and capital improvement list submittals.



      2)  Academic program criteria for future projects be re-

          quired for accuracy in planning and programming.  These

          guidelines are essential in establishing curriculum and

          the corresponding space requirement for the academic

          program.



      3)  Expand the Regents' guidelines to conform to typical

          Master Planning sequences.  Add additional items where

          needed.



      4)  Provide a format for all future Master Plan submittals

          identifying specifically the sequence, text, planning

          data, charts, Master Plan maps and diagrams required.

          Provide an outline of the specific type of response

          data required.



      5)  Require that each Master Plan be prepared by an appro-

          priate, qualified professional, and include all maps,

          diagrams and drawings needed to clearly define and

          demonstrate the current and proposed physical Campus

          Master Plan.



      6)  Provide a professional position in the Chancellor's

          Office to manage capital improvements activities.



      7)  Provide a format for all future capital improvement

          list requests.  Define the information and statistical

          data that must be provided, the justification date re-

          quired, and the sequence in which it must be submitted.



      8)  Have an official "UNS Project Programming Document

          Planning Guide" prepared to formalize the procedure

          for preparing a project programming document.  Require

          that all requests for new or major remodeling projects

          have "programs" developed before submittal for capital

          improvements funding.



          This document should outline all general and specific

          space needs by function and net assignable square feet

          (nsaf) required.  Net-to-gross efficiency factors must

          be developed, total gross square feet (gsf) area for

          the total project, and a projected cost for the facil-

          ity provided with a brief justification.  Infrastruc-

          ture costs should be identified as a separate line

          item within the program even though the cost may be

          included in the same capital improvement request.



          For infrastructure project and maintenance project re-

          quests, a similar document should be prepared including

          definition of areas, items of equipment and other des-

          criptions that will explain the scope and nature of

          the request followed by an estimate of costs.



      9)  Require that each institution provide the following

          capital program planning documents:



          "Physical Master Plan-Policies and Procedures Manuel"



          This proposed document should include an outline of

          all planning, action and approval policies and pro-

          cedures for the efficient management of the capital

          Master Planning program at each specific institution.



          "Architect/Engineer Design Guide"



          This document should provide instructions to consulting

          architects and engineers on how to properly respond to

          all of the particular needs and requirements of the

          client institution.



          "Campus Design Standards"



          This doument should outline all design systems, equip-

          ment, materials, quality standards, design details, and

          every other condition felt to be essential to the de-

          velopment of a compatibvle facility to be integrated

          into the subject Campus.



     10)  Quality and cost control reviews for the UNS need to

          be implemented on all capital improvement projects.

          These reviews should be conducted by an independent

          consultant for the Office of the Chancellor.  Four

          levels of analysis are required:  one following pro-

          gramming which reviews architectural concept and space

          criteria, another review following architectural sche-

          matic design which focuses on design systems, a com-

          prehensive review of documents produced during the

          design development phase and -- following the construc-

          tion document phase -- a final review of construction

          documents and cost estimates for accuracy and complete-

          ness.  During all reviews an independent cost compari-

          son should also be required.



     11)  Design criteria need to be established for the UNS.

          These stndards should be based on existing local his-

          torical data and also on State and national standards.

          Design criteria should be based on specific criteria

          unique to each Campus.



     12)  Develop and implement a UNS Master Planning policy and

          procedure manual for capital improvement projects.

          This manual will delineate the process for developing

          and sequencing future capital improvements based on

          accurate Master Planning information.



     Mr. Jensen explained that a Master Plan is a concept which

     binds the past with the present and the future -- a place in

     history.  A site plan is a plan in time only -- at present.

     He stated that it is extremely important to update the plans

     periodically to meet the changes in higher education.  Phys-

     ical Master Planning must be driven by a good academic plan

     before it can be implemented correctly.



     The consultants explained certain aspects of the report

     "Analysis of Campus Physical Master Plans for the University

     of Nevada System", which is filed in the Regents' Office.

     They addressed each of the Campus plans and asked for indi-

     vidual comments from the seven Presidents.  The Presidents

     agreed that the report was thorough and fair in detailing

     each of the individual Campuses.



     Chancellor Dawson and Chairman Gallagher thanked each of the

     consultants for their expert advice and recommendations.



The workshop meeting recessed at 9:40 A.M. and the Board recon-

vened in open session at 10:50 A.M., Friday, January 12, 1990,

with all Regents present.



18.  Approved the UNS Campus Physical Master Plans



     In August, 1988, the Board of Regents approved $15,000 in

     planning funds for each Campus to prepare a Campus Master

     Plan.  The Board also adopted guidelines for the develop-

     ment of these Master Plans.  In June 1989, each Campus for-

     warded a draft of its Master Plan to the Chancellor's Office

     for evaluation.  The Campus draft Master Plans have prev-

     iously been forwarded to the Board for information.  The

     consultants retained to review the Master Plans prepared

     "An Analysis of Campus Physical Master Plans for the Uni-

     versity of Nevada System".  During the workshop session,

     this document was submitted for review, and is filed in the

     Regents' Office.



     Chancellor Dawson presented his recommendations for physical

     Master Planning activities:



     1)  The Board of Regents should adopt the consultants' re-

         port and review recommendations for appropriate action.



     2)  The UNS should convene a systemwise seminar on physical

         Master Planning.



     3)  Campuses not rated "responsive" should be encouraged to

         continue to improve their physical Master Plans.



     4)  Reaffirm and expand the Regents' guidelines on physical

         Master Planning, as recommended by the consultants.



     5)  Improve data submitted for Campus capital construction

         requests.



     6)  Review the feasibility of adding a facilities manage-

         ment position to the Chancellor's Office.



     7)  Conduct a systemwide audit of existing space.



     8)  Appoint a systemwide committee to improve or expand

         formulas used in the space allocation process.



     Chancellor Dawson commended all Campus, System and other

     representatives who contributed to making this project a

     success.  He especially commended Gene Cross, Bruce Jensen

     and Steve Ehninger who have done an outstanding job for the

     University System.



     Mr. Rogich moved approval to adopt the Chancellor's recom-

     mendations of the UNS physical Master Planning activities.

     Mr. Foley seconded.  Motion carried.



     Mr. Foley requested that an inventory of assignable space

     be studied, prepared and submitted to the Board for its

     consideration.  In addition, he requested that a different

     method for maintenance funding be established so that the

     funds are not competing with new construction dollars.



     Mrs. Gallagher stated that the consultants had pointed out

     that physical Master Planning is an ongoing process.  She

     commended the Chancellor's committee for addressing this

     issue, stating that they performed a very important service

     for UNS.  She noted that UNS already has expertise in this

     field within the Campuses, and hoped these persons would be

     utilized.



19.  Approved the UNS Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Request,

     1991-93



     Approved the 1991-93 UNS Capital Improvement Program Request

     and directed that it be forwarded to the State Public Works

     Board in accordance with State policy.



     The prioritized lists of projects are based on information

     submitted to the Chancellor in the Master Plan documents

     submitted by each Campus.  Campus lists of requested capi-

     tal construction projects were analyzed and ranked by sys-

     tem priorities and need, as defined in the UNS capital

     construction process adopted by the Board in December, 1989.



     The lists were reviewed by the Presidents with the Chancel-

     lor.



     The requests are prioritized in two segments:



     a)  New Construction and Major Repairs and Remodeling



         This list contains the three projects for which the

         Nevada State Legislature approved planning/design funds

         during the 1989 legislative session, plus the top 15

         projects in priority order.  (Ref. I is filed with the

         permanent minutes.)



     b)  Minor Repairs and Remodeling



         This list contains projects which normally do not re-

         quire Public Works Board involvement.  As requested of

         the 1989 State Legislature, UNS is again recommending

         the Higher Education Capital Construction Fund (slot

         tax) be dedicated for these critical projects.  (Ref.

         J is filed with the permanent minutes.)



     Chancellor Dawson requested that the Board of Regents amend

     the Capital Improvement List to include priority 16 - UNLV's

     Wright Hall expansion, and priority 17 - UNR's Education

     addition.



     Chancellor Dawson introduced Mr. Robert Ferrari, Director

     of State Public Works Board.



     Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the 1991-93 UNS Capital

     Construction Request List through priority 17.  Dr. Eardley

     seconded.  Motion carried.



20.  Information Only:  Outstanding Faculty Recognition



     At the request of the Board of Regents, each Faculty Senate

     Chairman or representative reported on the outstanding

     faculty achievements from their respective institutions.



     University of Nevada, Reno



         President Crowley announced the following outstanding

         faculty:



         Deborah Ballard-Reisch, Faculty Senate Chairman



     University of Nevada, Las Vegas



         Faculty Senate Chairman Nancy Master announced the

         following outstanding faculty:



         Charles Adams, Alumni Association Distinguished Faculty

             Award



         Eugene Moehring for his book, "Desert City in the Sun-

             belt, Las Vegas", 1930-70



     Desert Research Institute



         Faculty Senate Chairman Alan Gertler announced the fol-

         lowing outstanding faculty:



         Thomas Hoffer, a Research Professor in the Energy and

         Environmental Engineering Center, is Director of the

         Desert and Intermountain Air Transport Program (DMAT).

         In this role, he is responsible for successfully direct-

         ing DRI's research on the long range transport of pol-

         lutants in the desert southwest with continued funding

         at the $1.8 million per year level.



         Gilbert Cochran, a Research Professor in the Water

         Resources Center, has carried out numerous studies over

         the years designed to characterize the hydrogeology of

         Nevada.  He is currently responsible for the overall

         management of a number of programs designed to assess

         the impact of man on the environment in Nevada.  He

         has served in the past as Faculty Senate Chairman at

         DRI.  He has a strong commitment to working for not

         only the good of DRI and its faculty, but also the UNS.

         This desire to transcend institutional boundaries is

         one of the keys if UNS is to continue to grow in both

         numbers and stature.



     Clark County Community College



         Faculty Senate Chairman Norma Suchy announced the fol-

         lowing outstanding faculty:



         Dorothy Chase as honorary member in Phi Theta Kappa, a

         national honorary society organization, and her appoint-

         ment by Governor Miller to the State of Nevada's Ad-

         visory Council for the Literacy Coalition.



         Carolyn Adnerson-Stewart was appointed to a 12-member

         national expert panel to redefine the medical records

         profession.  The panel examines the role and projects

         the future role of the profession, designs a survey

         instrument to gather information from approximately

         2500 recently credentialed medical record profession-

         als from both associate and baccalaureate degree

         programs.  This panel will continue for two years to

         collect and evaluate data.  The most important outcome

         of this effort will be a competency-based credential-

         ing examination.



     Truckee Meadows Community College



         Faculty Senate Chairman Paula Funkhouser announced the

         following outstanding faculty:



         John Coles, Counselor in the Student Services Division,

         has developed, published and marketed a career devel-

         opment instrument, "The Career Self-Concept Scale",

         which is very useful in career counseling.  He has been

         asked to conduct workshops on his test to several or-

         ganizations.  His efforts have impacted TMCC's career

         counseling services in a very positive manner.



         Paul Davis, Political Science Instructor in the Arts

         and Sciences Division, has received numerous awards

         and recognitions as well as authored many publications.

         His travels and studies have brought depth of material

         and lively discussions to his already dynamic classes.



21.  Information Only:  Outstanding Student Recognition



     At the request of the Board of Regents, each Student Govern-

     ment Officer or representative reported on the outstanding

     student achievements from the institution.



     University of Nevada, Reno



         ASUN President Glen Krutz announced the following out-

         standing students:



         Stephanie Siry is an accomplished student-athlete at

         UNR.  She is a leader on one of the nation's top col-

         legiate ski teams.  Last Winter, she was named to the

         All-America team of the NCSA.  In addition to being

         a decorated sportsman, she has been on the honor roll

         at the University for five consecutive semesters (3.5

         GPA or above for 15 or more credits).



         Rick Hsu epitomizes the future lawyer.  A senior Pol-

         itical Science major and Journalism minor, he plans to

22.  Budget and Finance Committee



     The Budget and Finance Committee, meeting as a Committee

     of the Whole under the Chairmanship of Regent Eardley,

     acted as follows:



     (1)  Approved a loan of up to $3,000,000 to fund Greek

          housing at UNLV.  General Counsel Klasic recommends

          approval contingent upon review of legal documenta-

          tion.



          It was explained that the Greek houses would furnish

          approximately 47 beds and rent per student of approx-

          imately $250-300 per month.  If the house is not at

          its full occupancy, the rent per occupant would be

          adjusted to cover the loss.  Mr. Rogich emphasized the

          need for each of the Greek houses to be distinctively

          designed and he was assured that, although utilizing

          a common architect, each would be designed individual-

          ly.  Sigma Chi, Alpha Tau Omega, and Kappa Sigma fra-

          ternities have committed to this housing project.  The

          sororities will be housed in the residential dormitor-

          ies at this time.



          President Maxson explained that the University would

          pay for the architectural fees, but if the fraternity

          should withdraw from the project the fraternity would

          bear the cost of the architectural fees and another

          fraternity would undertake the project.  He further

          explained that the University would perform the site

          preparation and landscaping, and the fraternities

          would maintain their own houses.  A portion of the

          fraternities' fees would go toward maintenance and

          upkeep of the outside grounds.  The University will

          create a reserve account for unexpected expenses.



          Mr. Rogich questioned that if the fraternities are

          located on the Campus, wouldn't they have to follow

          the established University rules and regulations, and

          he was answered in the affirmative.  Vice President

          for Student Affairs, Robert Ackerman, stated that the

          University knows that there will be problems, such as

          alcohol, but he feels that these will be manageable.

          President Maxson stressed that Nevada's drinking age

          is 21 and the University will abide by the laws of

          Nevada.



          Mr. Klaich moved approval of the loan of up to

          $3,000,000 to fund Greek housing at UNLV.  Mrs. Whitley

          seconded.



          With reference to the disciplinary problems that may

          occur, General Counsel Klasic noted that if a frater-

          nity is located off the Campus grounds, then the Uni-

          versity has no control over the actions of the members

          of the fraternity.  However, if a fraternity is located

          on the Campus, the University becomes responsible and

          it may be exposed to such events as law suits.  The

          University needs to be "at least" as strict as they

          are with the residential halls.



          Motion carried.



     (2)  Approved a loan of up to $600,000 to complete construc-

          tion of the Midby-Byron National Judicial and Continu-

          ing Education facility.  As a part of the funding for

          the facility, there are about $776,000 in pledge pay-

          ments due over the next seven years.  The loan would

          be entirely repaid from these pledge payments.  General

          Counsel Klasic recommended approval contingent upon

          review of legal documentation.



          Mr. Rogich moved approval of the loan of up to $600,000

          to complete construction of the Midby-Byron National

          Judicial and Continuing Education facility at UNR con-

          tingent upon reivew of legal documentation.  Mr. Klaich

          seconded.  Motion carried.



     (3)  Approved to spend up to $300,000 from the UNR Capital

          Improvement Fee Funds for the Student Health Service

          portion of the new Speech Pathology and Audiology

          Health Service buildings at UNR.  It is expected that

          funding commitments for the project will be finalized

          in the very near future and bids for construction

          solicited in early Spring.



          Mr. Klaich moved approval to spend up to $300,000 from

          the UNR Capital Improvement Fee Funds for the Student

          Health Service portion of the new Speech Pathology and

          Audiology Health Service buildings at UNR.  Mrs.

          Gallagher seconded.  Motion carried.



     (4)  Approved the following Summer Session Budgets for UNR,

          Mr. Foley moved approval of the Summer Session Budgets

          for UNR, CCCC, TMCC and WNCC.  Mr. Klaich seconded.

          Motion carried.



     (5)  Vice Chancellor Sparks presented the Base Budget Para-

          meters and estimated costs for informational purposes,

          with action at the February meeting.  He distributed

          a handout explaining the 1991-93 Biennial Base Budget

          Parameters.  The base budget is an extension of the

          existing budget which falls into the next biennium.

          It encompasses the enrollment increases and the cost

          of living increases.



          Mr. Foley stated that he felt the Board of Regents was

          not performing its duty in regards to the budget proc-

          ess.  He stated he objects to the current budget proc-

          ess and encourages the Board to review each Campus

          budget separately to ascertain that all Campus programs

          and needs are being met.



          Chairman Eardley requested each Campus President to

          comment on the current budget process.



          President Crowley stated that this process began in

          1971 and the formulas are well established at this

          time.  If it is the intent of the Board to change the

          process, President Crowley stated that his Campus would

          abide by the wishes of the Board, but he felt the Chan-

          cellor's staff, and Campus staff are doing exactly what

          the Regents have requested of them with regard to the

          budget process.



          President Maxson concurred with Mr. Foley's concerns,

          commenting that this is the first budget building proc-

          ess with which he feels comfortable.  The Chancellor's

          staff is performing its duties as directed by the Board

          of Regents.  In the past, the Campuses submitted its

          budget individually without knowledge of the other

          Campus budgets, but at this time the System is unified

          with its budget requests, although he mentioned that

          there has been a lot of give and take for each Campus.



          Mrs. Whitley stated that if the budgets are not estab-

          lished by using the parameters set by the Board of

          Regents, then the Board should be notified.  Further,

          she stated she would like to see the Chancellor's staff

          directed to conduct budget comparisons and report the

          inequities with justifications to the Board of Regents.



          Dr. Hammargren questioned what the most effective meth-

          od was in approaching the Legislature with the needs

          of the individual Campuses.  President Crowley offered

          a historical view on the budget process stating that

          prior to the formulas, the Legislature used a program

          budget process which contributed to the north-south

          politics in which they were embroiled.  At that time

          the budgets were based on the individual programs

          throughout the University System.  The funding formula

          then was created and agreed to by Regents, staff, Gov-

          ernor's Office and Legislature.  It is generated by

          enrollment growth, not individual programs.  UNR would

          be very happy to return to program funding inasmuch as

          it would create considerably more dollars for an older

          Institution which is not growing as rapidly as other

          Institutions in the System.  President Crowley added

          that the parameters are a necessary tool in preparing

          the final budget requests and must be in place at the

          beginning of the process.



          Mrs. Gallagher reminded the Committee that the budget

          process is not entirely up to the Board of Regents.

          If the Board wishes to change the process, timing is a

          major problem because the Board has to view the budget

          process in segments prior to finalizing the budget for

          submission to the Governor on September 1.



          President Taranik informed the Committee that prior to

          working for UNS he prepared budgets according to pro-

          grams and it was a major adjustment when he began work-

          ing for the University, which uses formula funding.  He

          stated that his personal view is not in favor of formu-

          la funding, but if the Board should decide to change

          the methodology for the next legislative session it

          would cause a major upheaval in the Legislature and the

          System.  He agrees that there needs to be a better rec-

          ognition and understanding of programs, but this would

          take two to three biennia and would possibly harm the

          System if undertaken at this time.



          President Remington stated that he fears the loss of

          formula funding and the political ramifications it

          would cause.  The formulas are good guidelines, but

          there is a problem in funding the formulas.  As the

          Community Colleges evolve there will be greater differ-

          ences between the Campuses.  The budget process should

          also recognize the difference between programs and In-

          stituions and provide for these differences.  He stated

          that in his opinion there needs to be some change in

          the part-time area which definitely needs additional

          funding.



          President Meacham stated that in order to make legiti-

          mate requests the Campuses need to know what resources

          are available to them.  It is difficult to address each

          individual Campus, because a President needs to con-

          vince the other six Presidents that he has a priority

          higher than other Campuses.  The problems with the

          formulas is not the formulas themselves, but the fund-

          ing of the formulas and the information that goes into

          the formulas.  There needs to be full funding of the

          formulas if they are to work for the System.  One major

          concern of his is the full-time/part-time ratios.



          President Gwaltney stated that he was concerned with



              1)  the absence of information with how the other

                  Institutions put their budgets together;



              2)  the indices and the built-in assumptions; and



              3)  the formulas with regard to growth.



          President Calabro stated that he was concerned with the

          way the formulas are being used.  The Community College

          Presidents continue to confront issues from the past

          which have not been properly funded, such as salary

          inequities.



          Chancellor Dawson informed the Committee that program

          budgeting caused the Legislature to direct UNS on how

          to run the programs.  If the formula is fully funded,

          then the inequities would be answered.  He did state

          that if the formulas would be fully funded then the

          Campuses could address the inequities that are on each

          Campus.



          President Maxson stated, for the record, that he was in

          favor of the formulas and supported the Chancellor's

          staff efforts including the handout which Vice Chancel-

          lor Sparks distributed at the beginning of the discus-

          sion.



          Mrs. Gallagher suggested, and the Committee agreed,

          that a special meeting of the Budget and Finance Com-

          mittee be held prior to the next Board of Regents

          meeting.



23.  Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee



     A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Commit-

     tee meeting, held January 11, 1990, were made by Regent

     Joseph Foley, Chairman.



     (1)  The Committee requested further study of the Intellec-

          tual Property Policy.  It will appear on the February

          agenda.



     (2)  Approved the establishment of an Institute for the

          Study of Gambling and Commercial Gaming at UNR, as

          contained in Ref. AA-2, filed in the Regents' Office.



          Endorsement of a plan to establish the Institute was

          given by the Board of Regents in June, pending submis-

          sion of a new program proposal.  The Institute will

          serve as an umbrella organization within the University

          and will focus on the coordination of research, devel-

          opment of appropriate courses, initiation of an infor-

          mation clearinghouse, and other activities related to

          gambling and commercial gaming.



          President Crowley informed the Committee that this pro-

          gram would not affect UNLV's College of Hotel Adminis-

          tration programs.  UNLV has kept apprised of the forma-

          tion of this progrm and there is not duplication of

          programming between the Universities.



          Vice President Dennis Brown stated that the community

          requested that the University develop a training pro-

          gram for Casino employees.  This program is an educa-

          tion function for the Gaming Industry.  Upon question-

          ing, Dr. Brown stated that research is one of the com-

          ponents of this program.  Research will be performed

          over the whole spectrum of gambling, including addic-

          tive behavior, and to keep abreast of national gaming

          trends in order for Nevada to keep ahead of its compe-

          tition with other States.



          President Gwaltney stated that the Community Colleges

          also provide mid-management Casino programs, and he

          sees this Institute as a cooperative effort between the

          community and the University of Nevada System.



     Mr. Rogich moved approval of the report and recommendations

     of the Academic Affairs Committee.  Mrs. Whitley seconded.

     Motion carried.

26.  Information Only:  Graduate Degree Programs in Rural Nevada



     President Crowley and Maxson presented a review of graudate

     degree programs offered in rural Nevada.



     A.  President Crowley stated that UNR's Orvis School of

         Nursing will be offering a master's level Nursing Pro-

         gram in Elko this Spring.  Ten students have enrolled

         in the program.  He commended Dean Sydney Krampitz for

         her initiative in starting this much needed program in

         rural Nevada.



         In addition, President Crowley stated that a master's

         program in Educational Leadership will be offered this

         Spring in Elko.  This program has fifteen students en-

         rolled.



         President Crowley informed the Board of Regents that

         UNR offers 90 graduate courses in rural Nevada.



         The College of Business Administration is discussing a

         possible master's in Business Administration degree

         program for rural Nevada, but has experienced some

         accreditation difficulties, i. e., equipment and off-

         Campus support.  The College is working on alternative

         methods in reaching students in the rural areas.



         President Remington expressed his gratitude to Chancel-

         lor Dawson, President Crowley, Dean of the College of

         Education Frank Meyers, and Dean Krampitz for their

         efforts to reach the students in the Elko area.



         Dr. Derby commended the efforts of those involved with

         the rural programs.  She noted that her constituents

         are asking for weekend classes in the rural area.  Pres-

         ident Crowley suggested that they look into the UNR PACE

         program.



         Mr. Klaich indicated that the UNR PACE program, which

         was inherited from Old College, is a wonderful program

         for full-time employees in the Reno-Sparks-Carson City

         area.



     B.  President Maxson stated that UNLV has extensive offer-

         ings at Nelis Air Force Base.  The College of Science

         and Mathematics along with the College of Education

         sponsor classes at Nelis.  The College of Education also

         holds classes for the Clark County School District and

         in Nye and Lincoln counties.  The College of Engineering

         has classes at the E. G. & G. site, and the College of

         Health Sciences holds Nursing classes in St. George,

         Utah.



         There have been several requests from the Laughlin and

         Bullhead City area to hold University specialized

         courses.  President Maxson stated that the Good Neighbor

         Policy has opened doors for many students along the

         Nevada borders.



27.  Information Only:  Update on Voluntarism Programs



     Regent Rogich requested an update on student volunteer pro-

     grams at UNLV and UNR.  Presidents Crowley and Maxson will

     report on the Campus activities.



     A.  President Crowley stated that there are three basic ave-

         nues by which a student can work in the community as a

         part of his College education at UNR:



         1)  Students across the Campus in several Colleges and

             Schools have opportunities for internships in the

             work site as a part of meeting the requirements of

             their major course of study, usually in their

             Junior or Senior year.



         2)  Various extracurricular groups currently are in-

             volved in the community through special projects

             and ongoing volunteer work.



         3)  There has been in place in the Department of Social

             Work and the Department of Health Resources a Soph-

             more-level course that requires 45 hours of volun-

             teer community work.



             He reported that approximately 200 students each

             year have had the opportunity through this course

             to work in such agencies as hospitals, residential

             programs for children, and homeless shelters.



         With the creation of the College of Human and Community

         Sciences, Dr. Crowley stated that, "The College will

         provide means to expand these opportunities for stu-

         dents.  The Dean of the College has been designated the

         lead person on Campus with responsibility for develop-

         ing and integrating volunteer opportunities for stu-

         dents.  Beginning this Fall all newly declared majors

         in the College of Human and Community Sciences will be

         required to complete a new course based on the model

         of the existing Introduction to Social and Health

         Resources which includes a 45-hour volunteer placement.

         Additionally, this course, designed to be a survey of

         current issues confronting individuals, families, and

         communities, will be open to students from across the

         Campus.  The number of students projected to be complet-

         ing such a volunteer placement in connection with an

         academic course will grow to about 500 per year."



         The College is developing a specific upper division

         course on voluntarism.  This course will survey the

         history of volunteers, current literature, and techni-

         ques and methods for working with and supervising

         volunteers.



         President Crowley informed the Board that the College

         has formed the Advisory Committee on Voluntarism.  The

         Dean of the College of Human and Community Sciences will

         Chair the Committee, and ASUN representatives will serve

         on the Committee.



         Mr. Rogich requested that UNR's Public Information

         Director prepare a news release on UNR's Voluntarism

         Program, goals and courses that already are in place.



     B.  President Maxson stated that CSUN President Joe Bunin

         and Faculty Senate Chairman Nancy Master have worked

         diligently on this program.



         Dr. Master stated that UNLV is planning to open a Vol-

         untarism Office.  Senior citizens will assist in staff-

         ing the Office.  It is hoped that everyone on the Campus

         including faculty, student and staff will take part in

         this program.  She stated that the course work for the

         Voluntarism Program is being developed at this time.



         Mr. Rogich also requested that UNLV's Public Information

         Director prepare a news release on UNLV's Voluntarism

         Program, goals and newly established Office.



         CSUN President Bunin stated that CSUN sponsors Campus

         organizations which perform volunteer work throughout

         the Campus and community.
