travel for Board members: attendance at one national and
one regional meeting annually. He announced two upcoming
meetings: ACCT Legislative Session in Washington, D. C.,
in February and the AGB Conference in Chicago in March,
both national meetings.
2. Chancellor's Report
Chancellor Jarvis announced the resignation of Mr. Tom
Radko, Director of the University of Nevada Press, who has
been named to a similar position in Los Angeles. Mr. Radko
became Director in 1989. At that time the Press was pub-
lishing an average of 10 books per year with sales of
$250,000. In 1995 the Press published 35 books and had
$650,000 in sales. Chancellor Jarvis related that Mr.
Radko has been an outstanding Director and a delight to
work with. A recognition event will take place late this
A recent edition of "The Nevada Lawyer" featured an article
by the Chancellor and Chairman Graves on a public Law School
in Nevada. Chancellor Jarvis expressed his thanks to Ms.
Connie Howard, UCCSN Public Information Officer, for an out-
standing job in assisting with the article.
The latest issue of "Community College Times" had a cover
story on the projected enrollment booms at the Community
President Crowley, UNR, reported that UNR's 5-year Capital
Campaign ended December 31, 1995, going over the top of the
$105 million goal. On January 20, 1996 the Foundation and
Alumni will sponsor a dinner to announce the amount reached
($124.5 million). Several other functions have been plan-
ned to highlight this endeavor. On February 8, 1996 two of
the oldest dormitories on the Campus, Manzanita Hall and
Lincoln Hall, will celebrate their 100th anniversary. Both
were completed in 1896. Manzanita Hall was designed as a
women's dorm and has remained so to the present time. Lin-
coln Hall was, and continues to be, a men's dorm. Lincoln
Hall also houses the UNR Honors Program.
President Harter announced that Dean Dale Anderson has been
chosen President of the American Association of Colleges of
Teacher Education. Fund raising efforts at UNLV have raised
$7 million in private funds from 100 donors in the first 6
months of the fiscal year. Mr. Fred Albrecht, Executive
Director of Alumni and Community Relations, has been awarded
the Tribute Award from CASE for his many years of service
to that organization. It is anticipated that UNLV will be
soliciting bids for the 3rd time for the Architecture build-
ing on March 1, 1996. The State Public Works Board and the
architects, Tom Schuman and Bill Snyder, have been revising
the plans for the building. The building is a key issue for
accreditation for the School of Architecture. The UNLV
Sierra Wind Quintet has been honored by being asked to per-
form for the Kennedy Center's 25th Anniversary Event on
February 28. They will also perform at Ohio State Univer-
President Jim Randolph, WNCC, announced that they will soon
be presenting College Bylaws for consideration by the Re-
gents. The revision of the Bylaws has been an all-College
effort. Planning is underway for a new 105,000 sq. ft.
building (Phase V) for the Carson Campus. The student gov-
ernment has been spending many hours and much effort to
present the first ever rock concert in Carson City.
President Ken Wright, TMCC, related that negotiations are
underway for a new Technology building. The appointment of
two new Vice Presidents will change the institution in that
they will be back to an executive team once again. Dr.
Wright again complimented Vice President Rita Gubanich for
her efforts while assuming the Interim President position.
President Richard Moore, CCSN, announced the opening of the
new building on the West Charleston Campus, with its center-
piece of a well-developed computer lab that is open to the
general public, as well as being available for students.
Prior to the opening, 80 students were enrolled on that
Campus for computer education. This Spring semester there
are over 2000 students enrolled. Overall Spring enrollment
is expected to increase by 3000-5000 more students.
President Jim Taranik, DRI, announced that the Institute is
now one of 9 National Environmental Research Laboratories
in the country. He distributed a brochure explaining the
efforts of the laboratories: "Exploring, examining and ex-
plaining the basic components and forces of our world and
how they interact is the very business of the Environmental
Research Laboratories (ERL), composed of 12 Federal Labora-
tories and 9 Joint Institutes, their University partners.
This cooperative research effort, part of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), attracts
world-class scientists who investigate the atmosphere, the
oceans and large lakes, and the space environment."
President Remington, GBC, related that in response to great-
er Campus access, GBC is offering 20% more courses this
Spring, including 5 intensive weekend programs. Through the
funding provided by SB204, GBC will have an interactive work
hookup between Elko and Ely, which will provide more in-
struction for Ely. GBC is partnering with the Elko Police
Department, Elko County Sheriff's Office and the Elko School
District planning efforts for their area.
3. Regents' Workshop: Intercollegiate Athletics
President Crowley, UNR, and Carol Harter, UNLV, presented a
workshop on Intercollegiate Athletics. They had just re-
turned from the 1996 NCAA Convention where a number of re-
forms were enacted in initial eligibility, continuing eli-
gibility, transfer eligibility, practice and competition
limits and graduation rate reporting, all of which becomes
effective in August, 1996. (Handouts from UNR and UNLV are
on file in the Regents Office.) President Crowley reviewed
the national picture outlining the academic reforms, cer-
tification and the President's role.
During the presentation on "Governance and Commitment to
Rules Compliance", Dr. Crowley reviewed the operating
principles which included Institutional Mission, Institu-
tional Control, Presidential Authority, Governing Board,
Shared Responsibilities, Assignment of Rules-Compliance
Responsibilities, and Rules-Compliance Accountability.
Mrs. Price questioned the role of the Board of Regents.
President Crowley explained that its role was one of
oversight, they receive periodic reports on athletics,
provide broad policies for Intercollegiate Athletics. Mrs.
Price continued that Nevada was unique in that there is
sports betting in the State and she questioned what dis-
cussion had taken place between NCAA and Congress regarding
this issue. President Crowley replied that when that oc-
curred there was very little mention of Nevada and the feel-
ing had been there was no useful purpose to try to remove
gambling, because it was legal here. There was just no
concern about Nevada. NCAA did have an unwritten policy
to avoid holding meetings in Nevada; however, during his
time on the NCAA Board, Dr. Crowley has been able to change
some of this and a number of committee meetings have been
held in the State. President Crowley stated that he did
not see this as a problem in Nevada and feels that Nevada
is protected because of the extensive regulation of gam-
bling. Mrs. Price questioned whether the Board would have
any input on discussion at a national level on gambling
and sportsbook. Dr. Crowley replied that he did not know.
There has been no problem with events in Nevada to date.
Mrs. Price questioned whether UNLV had an organization like
UNR's Wolf Club with their reporting structure. President
Crowley replied that almost all Universities have something
similar. The Wolf Club's reporting structure is similar to
that of an alumni organization. There are external audits
of these types of organizations. Mrs. Price then asked
whether UNR would be bringing a Men's Track Program back in
the future. President Crowley stated there was no consider-
ation for adding sports until the goals of gender equity are
met. Dropping or adding sports is reviewed through the Ath-
letics Advisory Board.
Mrs. Berkley left the meeting. Mr. Phillips entered the meeting.
President Crowley reported that gender equity covers all 13
programs in recruiting, supplies, salaries, etc. and will
cost $1.5-$2 million for UNR to reach those goals. UNR and
UNLV will be presenting for Board consideration a tuition
waiver policy which will assist in meeting some of these
goals, particularly with respect to women's programs.
Mrs. Gallagher left the meeting. Ms. Berkley entered the meet-
In answer to a question from Mr. Foley, President Crowley
stated that there have been NCAA reforms concerning due
process. Concerning open hearings, it is felt that viola-
tions would not be reported if the nature of the offense
was made public. NCAA is very sensitive to due process.
They have provided procedures for institutions to report
violations. An extensive report is made public following
the hearings, and the institutions have the right of appeal.
Concerning finances, Dr. Crowley, in answer to a question
from Mrs. Price, related that at UNR, $2 of the Student
Activity Fee goes to athletics. With regard to advertising,
President Crowley related that spaces on the scoreboards and
stadiums are purchased on an annual basis and that advertis-
ing requested by gaming is considered the same as any other
Mr. Alden asked whether student athlete eligibility was
determined on an average of the semesters, or each semester.
Both President Crowley and President Harter replied it is
determined each semester. Mr. Alden questioned whether
there was compliance on the Campus. President Crowley re-
plied that compliance is required by NCAA, and UNR's Com-
pliance Coordinator reports directly to the President, not
the Athletic Director. In answer to Mr. Alden's question
concerning mission statement, Dr. Crowley related that is
handled at the Department level. Dr. Harter stated UNLV is
in the process of writing their mission statements and it
will be handled at the University level. Dr. Crowley stated
that the mission is a product of the institution, and that
the President must approve Department mission statements.
Mr. Alden questioned fund raising by Booster organizations,
and both Presidents stated that any organization affiliated
with the institution is governed by that institution. Mr.
Alden stated he understood that in 1992 and 1993 there were
tuition waivers for athletes. Dr. Crowley stated that there
had not been tuition waivers for athletes since 1979, and
that the cost would be prohibitive; however, if the State
would pay for those waivers, it certainly would be accept-
able to the institutions.
President Harter stated that Joe Crowley is the leading
authority on Intercollegiate Athletics in the country, and
represents Nevada extremely well at the NCAA.
Dr. Harter presented a handout (filed in the Regents Office)
on Intercollegiate Athletics at UNLV. Projected revenue
from joining the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) this year
will be much higher than it has been in the past. UNLV has
pledged to use every allowable scholarship this next year
and is emphasizing increasing its student athlete gradua-
Mrs. Gallagher returned to the meeting.
President Harter related that UNLV has the same athletic
committees as UNR. They seek opinions from the Student
Athletic Advisory Board on each issue. NCAA has instituted
a certification process which UNLV will undergo in 1998.
UNR was among the first 60 institutions nationwide to be
involved in the process and was given certification. Pres-
ident Harter stated that for UNLV to secure gender equity,
the cost would be $2-$3 million.
Mr. Graves stated that Nevada is very fortunate to have
such successful and knowledgeable Presidents in athletics.
Dr. Derby commended both Presidents, stating that with this
report she is very reassured the programs will be well
President Harter introduced Dr. Myrlene La Mancusa, who has
been a faculty representative on Athletics Boards at UNLV
for a number of years. Dr. La Mancusa stated she reviews
every athlete's file every semester for compliance and
eligibility. Student athletes are required to make prog-
ress toward a degree.
Chairman Graves introduced Mrs. Lillian Hickey, Chairman of the
State Board of Education.
4. Approved Provost Appointment, UNLV
Approved the appointment of Dr. Douglas Ferraro as Provost,
UNLV, effective March 1, 1996, with tenure as a full profes-
sor in the Department of Psychology. In accordance with
policy, Chancellor Jarvis had approved the annual salary of
Mr. Alden moved approval of the appointment of Dr. Douglas
Ferraro as Provost at UNLV, effective March 1, 1996, with
tenure as a full professor in the Department of Psychology.
Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.
5. Approved Vice Presidential Appointments, TMCC
Approved the following Vice Presidential appointments at
A. Dr. Shanon Christiansen, Vice President for Academic
and Student Affairs at TMCC, effective January 15, 1996.
In accordance with policy, Chancellor Jarvis had ap-
proved a salary of $82,000.
B. Mr. Davis J. Keebler as Vice President for Resource
Management at TMCC, effective January 15, 1996. In
accordance with policy, Chancellor Jarvis had approved
a salary of $82,000.
Dr. Eardley moved approval of the appointments of Dr. Shanon
Christiansen as Vice President for Academic and Student
Affairs and Mr. David J. Keebler as Vice President for Re-
source Management at TMCC, appointments effective January
15, 1996. Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.
6. Closed Session
Upon motion by Dr. Eardley, seconded by Dr. Derby, and in
compliance with NRS 241.030, the Board moved to a closed
session for purposes of discussion of the character, alleged
misconduct, professional competence, or physical or mental
health of persons who are employees of the UCCSN.
The Board recessed for the Closed Session at 12:05 P.M. and re-
convened at 1:25 P.M. with all Regents present except Mr. Klaich,
Mr. Phillips and Mrs. Gallagher.
7. Academic, Research and Student Affairs Commitee Report and
Chairman Shelley Berkley reported that at the meeting held
December 14, 1995, a quorum of the Committee was not present
and the report on Prison Education was postponed and will be
heard at a future meeting.
7.1 Approved UCCSN Organizational Units - Approved 3 exist-
ing organizational units which had been in operation
for several years:
Biomechanics Research Laboratory, UNLV, Ref. D
Muscle Metabolism Laboratory, UNLV, Ref. E
University Center for Economic Development, UNR,
(Reference material filed in Regents Office.)
Mrs. Berkley moved approval of the Biomechanics Re-
search Laboratory and Muscle Metabolism Laboratory,
UNLV, and the University Center for Economic Develop-
ment at UNR. Mr. Alden seconded. Motion carried.
7.2 Approved Waivers of Out-of-State Tuition for Graduate
Fellowships - Approved waivers of out-of-state tuition
for graduate fellowships. Recently policy was changed
in order for graduate students enrolled in UCCSN, liv-
ing in Nevada and employed in support of instructional
research programs, to be eligible for out-of-state
waivers. Graduate fellowships should have been includ-
ed in that change, but were inadvertently overlooked.
This request would correct that oversight.
Ms. Berkley moved approval of the Handbook change,
Title 4, Chapter 15, Section 4, to include out-of-state
tuition waivers for graduate fellowships. Mr. Alden
seconded. Motion carried.
Ms. Berkley left the meeting.
8. Audit Committee Report and Recommendations
Chairman Alden reported there were no information items on
the agenda for the December 12, 1995 meeting of the Audit
8.1 Approved the UCCSN Consolidated and Campus FY 95
Financial Statements and Constructive Management
Letters - Mrs. Sandi Cardinal, Director of Internal
Audit, reported that each of the opinions issued for
the UCCSN Consolidated and Campus FY 95 Financial
Statements were clean. The Fund balances increased
to $54 million in FY 95. Cash bank reconciliations
at CCSN and UNLV are being addressed by the 2 Campus-
es. Until these reconciliations are cleared up, the
Committee will receive update reports. Mr. Alden
commended Mrs. Cardinal for her efforts.
Mr. Alden moved approval of the UCCSN Consolidated and
Campus FY 95 Financial Statements and Constructive
Management Letters. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion
8.2 Approved the Report on Institution Cash Counts, UCCSN -
Mrs. Cardinal reported that Internal Audit had held
surprise cash counts on the Campuses. At UNLV the
embezzlement of approximately $2500 was found and is
currently under litigation. A report will be made to
the Audit Committee at the conclusion of the litiga-
tion. Each Campus has responded to recommendations
made on procedures for handling cash.
Mr. Alden moved approval of the report on Institution
Cash Counts as provided by Internal Audit. Dr. Eardley
seconded. Motion carried.
9. Campus Environment Committee Report and Recommendations
Approved the report of the Campus Environment Committee
presented by Chairman Jill Derby. The Committee met on
December 14, 1995. A quorum was not present; however, the
Campuses provided reports that addressed 1) the organiza-
tional structure responsible for providing Campus safety
and security, and, 2) issues and concerns on each Campus
in regard to safety and security. (Outlines of the organ-
izational structures for safety are on file in the Regents
All Campuses expressed concern about the growing demand of
environmental health and safety issues and their limited
abilities to meet mandated levels of health and safety.
DRI faces a particular challenge as they receive no state
funding for safety; all activities are funded from overhead
The meeting provided an open forum for discussion of issues.
It was suggested that the Committee could take the lead in
raising the awareness of the Board, and others, to this
issue, and to understand the magnitude and expense, and the
Committee and the Board should also address how to set pri-
orities between this issue and others the UCCSN must face.
Dr. Derby moved to accept the report. Mr. Alden seconded.
Mr. Graves stated safety on Campuses for students is a
major concern of the Board.
Mr. Foley left the meeting. Ms. Berkley returned to the meeting.
10. Finance and Planning Committee Report and Recommendations
Dr. Eardley, Acting Chairman, reported that the Finance and
Planning Committee met December 12, 1995. In discussion on
the development of the 1997-99 Biennial Budget request, it
was learned the Council of Presidents is addressing priority
needs to be brought to the Committee and the Board at future
meetings. The System has hired a consultant on enrollments,
with a report and recommendations to be made to the Chan-
cellor on possible changes for projected enrollments in the
The Business Officers are reviewing the current formulas on
how they impact each institution and how these formulas
might be strengthened. Their report will be presented to
the Chancellor and Presidents to review. The need for a
formula study was discussed, which would include not only
System members, but others as well. It would be difficult
to complete a thorough study in time for inclusion in the
A System committee is reviewing deferred maintenance proj-
ects. Preliminary requests, in priority order, will be
presented for consideration in March, with action to be
taken at the April meeting.
The Computer Planning and Policy Committee (CPPC) is re-
viewing computing for the System and whether computing
should be centralized or de-centralized. Campuses are
identifying services for which they will be responsible
and the Computing Services' role in such change. A time-
line will be established for each institution.
The Committee members agreed that the current structure of
holding meetings separate from the regular Board meetings
works well in that it provides time for in-depth discus-
sions, time which probably would not be available if the
meeting were held in conjunction with the regular Board
Dr. Eardley moved approval for the report of the Finance
and Planning Committee. Mr. Alden seconded. Motion car-
Dr. Eardley left the meeting.
11. Investment Committee Report and Recommendations

13. Accepted Report of Facilities in Las Vegas, School of
Accepted the Report of Facilities in Las Vegas for the Medi-
cal School. Dean Robert Daugherty, School of Medicine,
stated that in August, 1994, the Board had approved the
acceptance of a gift of land from the City of Las Vegas on
which facilities for the Medical School would be built. In
October, 1994 the City of Las Vegas transferred title to the
land, with the stipulation that ground must be broken by
December, 1996. Escrow closed in December, 1994. The 10
acre site is located in the City's Technology Center at
Cheyenne and Interstate 95. Mountain View Hospital and
the headquarters of Sierra Health Service have facilities
on either side of the site.
A recent accreditation visit to the School, which resulted
in a 7-year accreditation, commended the faculty and cited
as strengths the School's general education initiative, the
AHEC program, the open, insightful self-study, and having
addressed the problems from the last report. Weaknesses
reported were space, staff and services of the Library. In
Fall, 1997 there will be an accreditation visit to see if
progress has been made in addressing these concerns.
Dean Daugherty provided a site map and preliminary archi-
tectural drawing of the facilities which will house clinics,
offices and laboratories in an 80,000 sq. ft. building to
be built with private funds at an approximate cost of $14
Mr. Alden moved to accept the report and that the School of
Medicine should proceed with planning. Mrs. Sparks second-
Dean Daugherty stated that once plans have been finalized,
whether in accepting the land, the program was approved at
the same time. The Dean reported that initial costs of
construction will be met with private funds. Operation
and maintenance of space for offices will be funded through
the budget process as are all other UCCSN facilities. Some
revenue will be produced through the Clinic for the upkeep.
Ms. Berkley stated that the community has long wanted to
interact more with the Medical School and this facility
will provide that opportunity. Dr. Derby questioned whether
this was a part of the UNR and School of Medicine plans.
Dean Daugherty replied that this project had been presented
to the Board about 5 years ago and that in 1993 it was ap-
proved for funding; however, funding was not forthcoming.
In 1995 the facility was not on the Board of Regents ap-
proved list, but since approval had been given earlier, it
was assumed planning should continue. It is included in
the School's master plan. In answer to a question from Mr.
Phillips concerning maintenance and operating funds, Presi-
dent Crowley stated that new buildings are an "add-on" for
State funding, that the System has a formula for including
new buildings in its budget requests.
14. Accepted Report on Library Facilities, Reno, Medical School
Dean Daugherty stated plans are underway for additional
Library needs at Reno, which will address the accreditation
program concerns. This facility was included in the 1989
master plan for UNR. Private funds will be used for the
$7-$9 million project which will house a Library Education
Center and a Women's Health Clinic. The School has received
a $10 million grant from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI)
for a 10-year study of women's health issues.
Mr. Alder moved to accept the report. Dr. Derby seconded.
With regard to the grant from WHI, Dean Daugherty stated
the $10 million grant will cover most of the costs and
activities for the new building for the 10-year period.
It is felt the program will continue growing, and that
many other intervention studies will result.
15. Report on UCCSN/Czech Republic Program
Dean Daugherty introduced Dr. Mary Patterson, UNLV, who re-
ported on a joint program involving UNR and UNLV's Health
Science Programs, the School of Medicine and the Schools of
Business at both UNR and UNLV, and 3 Universities in the
Czech Republic. The program is to improve health education
for faculty and students. Dr. Patterson is the coordinator
for the program, which will introduce students to world
health care. Dr. Patterson introduced Dr. Sona Stranova,
the Program Coordinator from the Czech Republic, representa-
tive from Charles University in Prague. She also introduced
Dr. Pavel Dvorak, Dr. Ivan Maly and Dr. Jane Semberova,
representatives from the University of South Bohemia School
of Medicine, Dr. Ing Jiri Pavlicek, Dr. Roman Prymula and
Dr. Jaroslava Mikulecka, representatives of East Bohemia
This program will be an 18-month working relationship to
familiarize Czechoslovakians with Nevada care. Curricula
and designing systems will be included in the second phase
of the program. The third phase includes sharing of prac-
titioners, and the fourth phase will be an exchange of
students and administrators.
27 Universities presented proposals for this international
program to the American International Health Alliance.
Nevada's proposal was accepted.
16. Approved Gift of Land, UNR
Approved gifting land to the City of North Las Vegas. In
1983 Claude Howard donated to the School of Medicine a 1.4
acre parcel of land on Lake Mead Boulevard in Las Vegas
upon which the Belmont Square Shopping Center stands. The
School of Medicine received a monthly rental income from
the property on a long-term land lease.
The City of North Las Vegas, in conjunction with the Re-
gional Transportation Commission and Nevada Department of
Transportation, is planning to widen and reconstruct Lake
Mead Blvd. beginning in March 1996. The small strip of
land the City wishes to acquire lies underneath the exist-
ing sidewalk in front of the Shopping Center and contains
an area of 997 sq. ft. The parcel has been appraised at
Since the area being affected is under existing public im-
provements, which the City plans to remove and replace, the
City of North Las Vegas has asked the UCCSN to consider
donating the property. The School of Medicine believes the
planned improvement would be of significant value to both
the Shopping Center and the City and feels a gift of the
small strip of land would benefit all concerned.
Ms. Berkley moved to approve gifting the 1.4 acre parcel
of land on Lake Mead Blvd. to the City of North Las Vegas.
Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.
