In response to an earlier request by the Board, Ted Selden,

A. I. A., presented his design for the UNR Physical Educa-

tion Complex. Mr. Selden's design had been selected as the

winning design during the architectural competition held by

the State Planning Board.



5. Proposed Legislation Concerning Nevada Bureau of Mines



Dean Scheid requested that legislation be sought to amend

the Nevada Bureau of Mines law to:



(1) Change the title of Nevada Bureau of Mines to Nevada

Bureau of Mines and Geology;



(2) Change the mandatory qualifications of the Director to

allow appointment of a person trained in any branch of

Science or Engineering related to the mineral industry,

geology or mineral resources;



(3) Revise the statement of duties of the Bureau;



(4) Recognize the long standing University policy of allow-

ing the Bureau to retain the proceeds of sale of publi-

cations to be used for future publication costs; and



(5) Move this statute from Chapter 514, Title 46, Mines and

Mineral to Title 34, Education, Chapter 396, University

of Nevada System.



President Miller recommended approval. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



6. Alcoholic Beverage Policy



President Miller presented a recommendation from UNR Alco-

holic Beverage Policy Committee requesting that the Board

consider a change in rules relative to use of liquor in

approved housing. The Committee recommended that students

21 years of age or over who reside in University housing be

permitted to have alcoholic beverages in their place of

residence. The Committee also recommended the following

conditions:



(1) Students over 21 years of age could elect in each liv-

ing unit to be clustered so as to facilitate enforce-

ment of all State and local laws relative to drinking.

Their being permitted to do so would result from a

majority decision in which all members of that living

unit participate.



(2) Students who elected to cluster so as to enjoy their

right to drink would have the responsibility of obeying

the law (as would minor students).



(3) The right of clustering students to drink could be

revoked by majority vote of others living in the living

unit.



(4) This policy might be adopted on an experimental basis,

its continuance dependent upon satisfactory results.



President Miller introduced the members of the Committee

(identified on Ref. L, filed with permanent minutes). Dr.

Carlson, Chairman of the Committee, spoke in support of the

change in policy as did Dean Roberta Barnes, Miss Frankie

Sue Del Papa and Judge Laurance Hyde.



Mr. Bilbray moved that recommendation of the Committee be

approved, effective for the balance of the current semester.

Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson.



Further discussion was held on the subject, with concerns

expressed by several of the Regents over lack of specific

information concerning what was meant by clustering. Mr.

Hug asked if it was the intention of the Administration in

recommending the change that drinking would be confined to

student's room, or would it be defined in the total area

considered as the "clustered area"? Would drinking be per-

mitted in halls or in lounges? A secondary question which

Mr. Morris suggested needed attention was one involving

the possibility that the State Legislature might lower the

legal drinking age to 18. He questioned whether the Univer-

sity would wish to extend the privilege of possession and

consumption of alcohol in University dormitories to that age

group.



Mr. Morris moved that the matter be tabled. Motion seconded

by Mr. Hug. Mr. Jacobsen did not call for a vote on the

question.



Dr. Akers, Assistant Dean of Students, stated it was his

opinion that the laws of the University should not be more

restrictive than those of society.



Mr. Steninger referred to statements which he said has been

made on several occasions that the present policy was unen-

forceable. He asked how the proposed change would make the

policy enforceable, noting that there is still a restriction

on underage students having alcohol.



Mr. Jacobsen stated that it had been suggested to him by a

number of students and parents that one of the problems in

keeping the residence halls at maximum occupancy is because

there is no enforcement of rules, including that of drink-

ing, and the students find it too disruptive.



Mr. Morris moved again that the matter be tabled for sixty

days, or until the April meeting. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott.



Mr. Jacobsen acknowledged the rule which does not permit

discussion of a motion to table but suggested that the rule

be relaxed in this instance to permit full discussion of

this matter.



Mr. Pine stated that the present policy regarding alcoholic

beverages is not enforced and noted that, in his opinion, it

could not be enforced. He suggested that this was an oppor-

tunity to improve the situation, with success depending to a

large measure on the attitude of the students.



Dr. Barmettler agreed, stating the faculty believes this

is the opportunity to show the students they are trusted

and that they are believed to be capable of governing

themselves.



President Miller noted that this matter has been given much

time and discussion by groups on the Campus, by the Adminis-

tration and by the Regents. He stated the proposed change

in policy gets as specific as possible when considering

the differences within the various living units. He sug-

gested that establishing the procedures within the living

units should be considered as an administrative application

of a Board policy and could be provided as an informational

report to the Board at a later date.



Motion to table failed by the following roll call vote:



No - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Bilbray, Mr. Hug, Mr.

Jacobsen, Mrs. Knudtsen, Mr. Steninger,

Miss Thompson

Yes - Mr. Mc Dermott, Mr. Morris



Dr. Anderson moved that the Committee's recommendation be

approved, effective immediately, with the conditions speci-

fied by the Committee, and that an informational report

conderning implementation of the policy be brought back to

the Board in April. Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen,

carried with the following roll call vote:



Yes - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Bilbray, Mr. Hug, Mrs.

Knudtsen, Miss Thompson

No - Mr. Mc Dermott, Mr. Morris, Mr. Steninger

Abstain - Mr. Jacobsen



7. School of Medical Sciences



Following adjournment for lunch the Board reconvened in the

School of Medical Sciences for a progress report on the

School. Dean Smith and members of his staff presented a

film detailing administrative structure of the School and

presented a report concerning the 32 students who have been

accepted for the first class beginning September, 1971. The

Board then reconvened in the Travis Lounge for the afternoon

session.



8. Fee Structure, School of Medical Sciences



President Miller recommended that the registration fee and

the out-of-state tuition for the School of Medical Sciences

be greater than for other UNR programs (see Ref. D, filed

with permanent minutes). He recommended that the registra-

tion fee be $250 per semester ($130 for other programs) and

tuition be $750 per semester ($500 for other programs). He

also requested the difference between the surcharge and reg-

ular fee or tuition be dedicated to a special equipment fund

for the School of Medical Sciences. This would provide that

for every resident student $120 ($250 less $130) and for

every non-resident student $370 ($750 less $500 plus $250

less $130) would be dedicated to this special fund.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, with the special

fee and tuition to become effective Fall semester 1971.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Miss Thompson, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



9. Organizational Structure of School of Medical Sciences



UNR President Miller recommended that the School of Medical

Sciences be organized into five divisions:



Division of Basic Medical Sciences

Division of Behavioral Sciences

Division of Clinical Sciences

Division of Research

Division of Educational Support and Communications



President Miller also requested authorization to use the

title of Director for 2 other positions in the school; that

of Director of Medical Curriculum and Director of Student

Affairs.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



10. Approval of Final Plans for the Health Related Science

Building, UNR



Mr. Pine presented the final plans for the Health Related

Science building, as approved by President Miller, State

Planning Board and the Regional and Washington Offices of

the Department of Health, Education and Welfare.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that preliminary plans for the

facility were approved by the Board at the November 20-21,

1970 meeting, at which time certain data was presented con-

cerning the method of financing and the project budget. He

presented the following comparison of that information with

11. Presentation Concerning Community College Sites



Director Donnelly introduced Mr. Max Tadlock, from Tadlock

Associates, Inc., consulting firm which had been retained to

advise the University concerning site selection for the pro-

posed Community Colleges in Western Nevada and Clark County.



Mr. Tadlock reviewed the findings of the study team with aid

of projected maps of the areas under consideration. (Com-

plete report titled "Site Selection Study for the Community

College System of the State of Nevada" is on file in the

Chancellor's Office.) Mr. Tadlock reviewed the general

service area criteria and specific site criteria used in

developing recommendations, noting that sites were surveyed

against this criteria and recommendations made concerning

the advantages and disadvantages of specific parcels of

property in the Reno-Sparks area, Carson City, Minden-

Gardnerville-Tahoe Basin area, and the Southern Nevada area,

including Las Vegas and North Las Vegas. Mr. Tadlock empha-

sized that TAI was not making a recommendation as to a

specific piece of property; however, they did wish to make

the following general recommendations:



(1) Every effort should be made to acquire sites, begin

construction and operation of a school.



(2) Immediate steps should be taken to acquire sites for

long range planning needs.



(3) Take steps to acquire one of the properties described

in the study in the Las Vegas area and also acquire the

free land in the Charleston area for a second site

which will be needed toward the area of Boulder City

and Henderson.



(4) Take steps to acquire a large holding in the area im-

mediately south of Reno (parcel 1, 2 or 3 in the study)

and take concurrent action to acquire a site to serve

Carson City and surrounding area.



(5) Take action resolving that the Director of Community

College Division should be instructed to proceed with

negotiation for acquisition of sites in areas just

named.



Mr. Tadlock urged that the Board of Regents not entangle

itself in the selection of a site but direct the Administra-

tion to do so and then review the recommendations.



Dr. Donnelly agreed with Mr. Tadlock's recommendations,

noting that he would like the opportunity to bring back to a

later meeting recommendations on particular sites to be

finally selected by the Board of Regents.



Chairman Jacobsen introduced Assemblymen Dave Brand and Paul

May and Senator Lee Walker from Clark County.



Assemblyman Brand reported that he had been authorized to

offer 200 acres of land free to the University of Nevada

System as a site for Community College as a gift from the

City of North Las Vegas. (Offer referred to Site D in the

TAI study, identified as being located at Leon and Ann Road

and owned by the City of North Las Vegas.) Assemblyman Paul

May and Senator Walker also spoke in support of this site as

the location for a Community College in southern Nevada.



Assemblyman Smalley spoke of the long range plans for addi-

tional sites and suggested the Henderson area be considered

as a future service area for the Community College System.

Chairman Jacobsen noted a copy of Resolution #267 by the

City Council of the City of Henderson, offering to set aside

city-owned land for the construction of a Community College

Campus, had been distributed to the Board.



Assemblywoman Juanita White, from Boulder City, spoke in

support of a site in Boulder City, noting that the City's

charter provides for land for a fee of only one dollar for

any educational institution wishing to locate in Boulder

City.



Senator Archie Pozzi from Carson City read a letter from Dr.

Eugene Scrivner, Mayor of Carson City, as follows:



The Board of Supervisors of Carson City at a special

meeting held Wednesday, February 10, 1971, has deter-

mined that certain financial support of a Community

College in Carson City would be in the public interest.

As a result, Carson City will obligate $50,000 during

the fiscal year 1971-72 and we will also levy a tax

rate of 5 cents per $100 of valuation during each of

the next three fiscal years for this purpose.



We would ask that you consider this information during

any meeting you may conduct and in support of locating

the proposed Western Nevada Community College in Carson

City.



Mr. Pozzi also presented a map reflecting 520 acres of State

property of which 200 acres would be made available to the

University of Nevada for a site for the proposed Community

College if such a facility were located in Carson City.



Mr. James Lien from the Carson City Chamber of Commerce also

spoke in support of a Carson City location (letter from Mr.

Lien on file in Chancellor's Office).



Motion by Mr. Morris, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that Dr. Donnelly be directed to proceed with

recommendations for sites for Community Colleges in the

Carson-Minden area, Reno-Sparks area, Las Vegas, North Las

Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City for final selection by the

Board of Regents.



12. Final Plans for Large Animal Facility



Mr. Pine presented the final plans for the Large Animal

Facility to be constructed on the Main Station Farm property

directly north of the Ladino Dairy. He noted that the plans

have been approved by the Dean of the College of Agriculture

and by President Miller. The facility is to be constructed

from funds available from the following sources:



Federal Funds P. L. 88-74 $ 7,000

Agricultural Experiment Station

Research (1-1-78-3018) 73,000

$80,000



Mr. Pine recommended approval of the final plans and author-

ity to advertise for bids. President Miller and Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



13. 4-H Youth Camp



President Miller recalled the Board had previously agreed

that an appraisal should be made of the 33 1/3 acre site

of the 4-H Youth Camp at Lake Tahoe. This appraisal was

done by William G. Kimmel, M. A. I., Reno, who determined

the fair market value to be $1.7 million and the fair

rental value to be $153,000 per year.



In addition to discussion of a report distributed with the

agenda titled "A Proposal for Development of the Nevada 4-H

Youth Camp", and a copy of minutes of the State 4-H Camp

Advisory Council (see Ref. N, filed with permanent minutes),

Dean Bohmont also presented slides of the facility and Dr.

Joseph Stein presented a financial statement for the facil-

ity for the four-year period ending June 30, 1970.



President Miller noted that this matter was brought to the

Board for information so that Regents may be informed of the

direction in which the College is moving in order to more

fully utilize the facilities at Lake Tahoe.



14. WICHE Doctoral Program in Home Economics



President Miller requested approval of a request by the

School of Home Economics that UNR be authorized to partici-

pate in an inter-institutional program in Home Economics

sponsored by Western Interstate Commission on Higher Educa-

tion. Dr. Marilyn Horn described the mechanics of the pro-

gram whereby students at UNR in the field of child develop-

ment and family relations may take course work at either

Oregon State University or UNR which would apply toward the

Ph. D. offered by Oregon State. (See Ref. O, filed with

permanent minutes for further details of the program.)



President Miller recommended approval. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



15. Acceptance of Gifts



Gifts and grants were recommended for acceptance as reflect-

ed in Ref. A, filed with permanent minutes.



Motion by Mr. Morris, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the gifts as reported be accepted with the

exception of two gifts reported on the UNR list as memorials

to Melinda and Gary Zornes which Mr. Morris stated he be-

lieved to be in error and should have been reported as gifts

to UNLV.

17. Approval of Fund Transfers



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

transfer of funds:



University of Nevada, Reno



#179 At the October 9-10, 1970 meeting of the Board of

Regents, the following recommendation concerning

Institutional Memberships was approved.



(1) The Presidents and Directors of the four System

Divisions be empowered to authorize Institutional

Memberships for their respective Divisions;



(2) The Chancellor be empowered to authorize System

Memberships; and



(3) Transfer into Institutional Membership accounts

from a Contingency Reserve be subject to the same

regulations as other transfers.



In conformity with the above, President Miller is re-

questing an additional $2,500 be transferred from the

Contingency Reserve to Institutional Memberships for

UNR. Insufficient funds were budgeted to cover all

approved Institutional Membership dues in fiscal 1970-

71. If approved, $8,600 will be available for this

purpose during fiscal 1970-71.



#180 $4,500 from Contingency Reserve to Faculty Senate to

provide a secretary for the remainder of this fiscal

year and to reimburse operating funds used to pay the

secretary to date. If approved, $10,700 will be

available to the Faculty Senate during fiscal 1970-71.



#181 $15,200 from Contingency Reserve to Geology-Geography

Department to provide funds for five Graduate Fellow-

ships temporarily for fiscal 1970-71 only.



#184 $5,500 from Contingency Reserve to Ethnic Studies

Administration, to provide funds for Ethnic Workshop

during Spring semester 1971 as follows:



$4,500 to Professional Salaries for six faculty

teaching three credit hours each at a salary of

$250 per credit hour (this is Evening Division

rate).



$270 to student wages.



$730 to operating for books, lectures, consult-

ants.



#185 $13,000 from Contingency Reserve to Buildings and

Grounds classified salaries. With occupancy of the

new Chemistry building, the Chemistry Department is

conducting experiments that require the building to be

heated 24 hours a day; consequently, it is necessary

to operate the heat plant during these hours. The

1970-71 Work Program did not provide for this type of

coverage. This transfer will provide fund to hire

two additional heat plant operators.



#186 $12,000 from Contingency Reserve to the President's

Office operating. Funds are not only for the Presi-

dent's Office but also the Vice President for Academic

Affairs and the Office of the Dean of Community Rela-

tions, as well as in-state travel for the Coordinating

Council members when the Council meets in Las Vegas.

The interview expenses for the position of Vice Presi-

dent for Student Affairs have also been charged to

this account. The 1970-71 Work Program did not pro-

vide sufficient funds to conduct these activities.



#187 $4,114 from Contingency Reserve to Crisis Call Center

to provide partial funding for the Center as follows:



$3,228 to professional salaries



$210 to fringe benefits



$676 to operating



The 1970-71 Work Program made no provisions for the

Crisis Call Center.



#188 $4,937.50 from the Contingency Reserve to Philosophy

Department to provide funds to hire a professional

employee in the Philosophy of Inquiry Program for the

Spring semester.



#189 (For information purposes only)



$1,900 from the Contingency Reserve to the Psychology

Department to provide the additional funds necessary

for 1/2 of Dr. Paul Mc Reynolds' salary for this

fiscal year.



Community College Division



#5 $2,000 from Contingency Reserve to Instructional Wages

to provide funds for an additional part-time employee

and student wage funds for the remainder of this

fiscal year.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



18. Memorial Statement for Mr. Jim Mc Nabney



President Miller presented, with his recommendation for

approval, the following request from ASUN President Frankie

Sue Del Papa:



In the name of the Associated Students of the Univer-

sity of Nevada, Reno, I wish to recognize Mr. Jim

Mc Nabney's many years of service to the University

and to the community. I feel his dedication and ef-

forts are very worthy of acknowledgement by the Board

of Regents of the University of Nevada System. I

respectfully request that the Board of Regents com-

municate a memorial statement to his family.



Motion by Miss Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



19. Purchases in Excess of $5,000, UNR

dividual low items: total to Agro-Chem Farm Supply,

Fallon for 3 items - $7,844.25 and to Albers, Inc., Reno

for 1 item - $178.20. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, car-

ried without dissent that above recommendation be ap-

proved.



D. Mr. Pine reported that the College of Agriculture had

requested approval of purchase of a Model 3020-D John

Deere tractor which was obtained earlier on a lease pur-

chase agreement. The original cost of the tractor was

$7,423.40; that price has now been discounted by

$1,938.72. President Miller recommended approval of the

purchase of this equipment at a total price of $5,484.68

of which $1,484.68 credit has been received for monthly

payments made under the lease purchase agreement. He

noted the balance required is available from surplus

Hatch funds. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott,

carried without dissent that the above recommendation

be approved.



20. Class A Actions



President Miller presented the following 5 Class A Actions

by the UNR faculty, with his recommendation for approval:



(1) Policy and procedures for use of satisfactory/unsatis-

factory grading system for undergraduate courses (see

UNR Class A Action Bulletin 70-71 #7, filed with

permanent minutes).



(2) Procedures for a change of final grades in courses (see

tive Fall semester 1971.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



21. Reconstruction and Renaming of Tram



A. President Miller requested approval of reconstruction of

the tram between Manzanita Lake and the Bowl. The new

tram would have a colored exposed aggregate concrete

walkway on grade with handrails on each side and light

standards on the north edge. The estimated cost is

$9,790. $3,000 is presently available from the Evans

Walk Fund and $900 from ASUN. Chancellor Humphrey

recommended that approval be granted and the work be

done when sufficient funds are available.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, car-

ried without dissent that above recommendation be ap-

proved.



B. President Miller presented, with his endorsement, the

following recommendation from Miss Del Papa, President

of ASUN:



I hereby request that in conjunction with the

renovation of the Manzanita Tram, that the tram

be renamed the Evans Tramway. I further recommend

that a plaque be memoralized on the proposed brick

planter on the eastern end of the tram. The plaque

shall read:



In memory of John Newton Evans, born 1835, and

Elizabeth Metcalf Evans, born 1853. May all

roads lead to peace.



The plaque shall be placed during an appropriate

ceremony which shall include an unveiling by the

President of the University.



President Miller recommended approval. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Miss Thompson, car-

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



22. Quarterly Report Concerning Complaints Filed



In accordance with the requirement contained in the Interim

Rules, President Miller filed a quarterly report for the

period ending November 30, of disciplinary cases handled in

accordance with the Rules. Report identified as Ref. G and

filed with permanent minutes.



23. Progress Report on UNR Construction and Design Projects



A progress report from Business Manager Pine for construc-

tion and design projects under the supervision of the UNR

Physical Plant and a progress report from the State Plan-

ning Board were distributed with the agenda. Both reports

are on file in the Chancellor's Office.



24. Correspondence Division Title Change



President Miller presented a recommendation by the Dean of

General University Extension, with his endorsement, for a

change in the title of the Correspondence Division to

Independent Study Division. Justification for change was

submitted in Ref. J, distributed with the agenda and filed

with the permanent minutes.



Chancellor recommended approval, effective immediately.



Motion by Miss Thompson, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



25. Exchange of Property, ECC



Director Donnelly recalled that in November, 1970, the Board

approved proceeding with negotiations with the City of Elko

to trade the 100 acres owned by the Board northwest of Elko

for 50 acres on the former golf course owned by the City of

Elko. The property was appraised for ECC by Mr. Jack Martin

of Elko, who certified the value of the property the Board

of Regents would receive to be equal to or in excess of the

value of the property it would relinquish.



Mr. Donnelly recommended that the exchange proceed and that

the Board adopt a resolution indicating its intent to ex-

change the property so that adequate publication may be made

prior to the required hearing on the matter.



Mr. Barbagelata presented the following resolution with his

recommendation for adoption by the Board. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.

UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA SYSTEM BY

AND THROUGH ITS BOARD OF REGENTS





_______________________________

Chairman



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted.



26. 1971 Summer School Estimative Budget, ECC



Director Donnelly presented 1971 Summer School Estimative

Budget for Elko Community College with his recommendation

for approval. Chancellor Humphrey concurred. (Budget

identified as Ref. Q and filed with permanent minutes.)



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



The meeting adjourned at 5:20 P.M. and reconvened on Saturday,

February 13, 1971 at 9:08 A.M. with all Regents present who were

in attendance the previous day. Mr. Donnelly was not present on

Saturday.



27. Wolf Pack Boosters Club



As had been previously scheduled, Dr. Joseph Libke, Presi-

dent of UNR Wolf Pack Boosters, appeared before the Board to

to discuss the Boosters organization and to inform the Re-

gents concerning the opinion of his group about "the prog-

ress and direction of the University of Nevada, Reno ath-

letic program".



Dr. Libke spoke of the efforts of the Boosters Club to raise

funds for the support of the athletic program at UNR and of

the interest the Board of Directors has in the program. He

noted that there are two things about which the Board of

Directors has expressed concern. One is the procedure used

by ASUN for handling that portion of the ASUN fee which is

dedicated to athletics. Dr. Libke recalled the student vote

of two years ago which had increased the athletic fee paid

by the students from $5.50 to $7.50 per student per semester

to defray the additional costs of participating in the WCAC.

This, he stated, has been a point of contention between ASUN

officers and the Intercollegiate Athletic Control Board.

He stated that, for this reason, the Board of Directors rec-

ommends that the Regents make a determination as to how much

of the ASUN fee is to be dedicated to athletics and earmark-

ing that amount by removing it from ASUN funds. This would

facilitate the budgeting for the athletic program which must

be done 4 or 5 years in advance. He pointed out that each

change in student government subjects the allocation to

athletics to discussion and possible change and leaves the

Athletic Department in the position of never knowing how

much they will have the following year.



The second matter of concern of the Board of Directors, Dr.

Libke stated, is the possibility that the Boosters Club may

have reached the maximum of what can reasonably be expected

from that group in the way of contributions. They feel,

therefore, that it is time that the Regents make a firm

decision as to where the athletic program is to go. He em-

phasized that the Board of Directors is not advocating a

major athletic program but do believe there must be a pro-

gram which is adequate to compete in the conference to which

the University belongs. He noted that the money received by

athletics from the University budget last year was $17,000

which is the same level of support which has existed for the

past 20 years. Dr. Libke recommended that the Regents

request the Legislature to earmark a certain amount of funds

for each Campus for athletics, noting that there had been

some movement to encourage a request by the Board of Direc-

tors independent of the Board of Regents but he personally

objected to this approach and preferred to work with the

University in making such a request of the Legislature.



Mr. Bilbray expressed concern about possible effects on the

PE Complexes if the Board asks for supplemental appropria-

tions for athletics. Dr. Libke suggested that this could be

handled by explaining to the Legislature the PE Complexes

are intended to support the academic and intramural programs

whereas the intercollegiate athletic programs are entirely

different.



Dr. Libke restated his recommendation on behalf of the UNR

Wolf Pack Boosters as follows:



(1) That the Board of Regents request the Legislature to

appropriate $100,000 for each Campus for each year of

the biennium with these amounts to increase in the

years to come; and



(2) That the $7.50 per student per semester allocation from

ASUN fees which is dedicated to athletics be separated

from ASUN funds.



Mr. Morris said he believed that $100,000 was a reasonable

figure but suggested a more defensible approach to the Leg-

islature. He stated that the students are doing their share

and their fees should not be increased; however, the State

is not doing its share and suggested the State should at

least match the student fee. Mr. Morris moved that the

Legislature be requested to appropriate to each Campus for

their athletic programs an amount equal to that part of

ASUN and CSUN fees allocated to athletics. Motion was not

seconded.



Mr. John Wellinghoff, ASUN Vice President, stated that the

student poll referred to earlier was to gather opinion on

whether UNR should change WCAC and did not call for a vote

on allocation of $7.50 to athletics, an increase of $2 to

that activity. That figure, he stated, was determined

through an agreement between the ASUN President and the

Athletic Department and was never approved by the ASUN

Senate. He disagreed with President Miller's understanding

that the ballot contained both issues.



Mr. Hug stated that regardless of what was or was not on the

student ballot, it was clearly understood that going into

WCAC meant an additional $2 of ASUN fee to the Athletic

Department and representation was made to the Board that

this was student approved.



Miss Del Papa stated she resented Dr. Libke's appearance

before the Board and his attempt to undermine the efforts by

ASUN to resolve this matter. She suggested that he had no

right to involve himself in the way ASUN fees are spent.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved that this matter be referred to Presi-

dent Miller for consultation with ASUN officers, Boosters

Club Board of Directors, and other concerned groups and

brought back to the Board through the Student Affairs

Committee. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray.



Dr. Libke expressed concern that his appearance would be

misunderstood as an attempt to undermine the efforts of ASUN

to resolve this matter. He pointed out that this was not

his intention; he had requested the opportunity to appear

to inform the Regents of the Booster's Board of Director's

concern and to recommend that a decision be made that would

permit the Athletic Department to proceed with its planning.



Mr. Hug stated he strongly disagreed with Miss Del Papa's

statement. He commented on the years of service which

Dr. Libke had given the University through the Intercolleg-

iate Athletic Board and the Boosters Club and commented that

this service had certainly insured his right to be heard and

he personally appreciated the time he had taken to appear

before the Board to discuss the Boosters Club's concern.

Dr. Anderson agreed, pointing out that the University owes

Dr. Libke and other members of the Boosters Club a great

deal of thanks for their support and stated he believed the

members of that organization had every right to an explana-

tion of how athetic funds are spent.



Motion carried without dissent.



Mr. Morris restated his motion that a request be made to the

Legislature for a yearly appropriation to each Campus to

match student fees allocated to athletics, that is, $9 per

student per semester at UNLV and $7.50 per student per

semester at UNR.



Mr. Hug again expressed concern about the effect of such a

request on the University's legislative program. Dr. Zorn

agreed, stating that although he believed that additional

support for UNLV's athletic program was needed and would be

welcome, he did not believe it would be wise to try to grant

it in the present operating budget nor would he wish this

kind of request to compete with the academic functions of

the University.



President Miller also agreed the athletic programs could

use more support; however, he stated it should be clear that

the University is not ignoring this program. He noted that

funds are allocated to athletics through payment of coaches'

salaries and the granting of student fee waivers. He ex-

pressed concern that such a request at this time might have

a detrimental effect on the University's total budget re-

quest and the capital improvement program request.



Mr. Humphrey suggested that it might be desirable to hear

related problems of other special appropriation requests,

noting that bills had been introduced by individual Legis-

lators for programs to be conducted through the College of

Agriculture and that the Nevada Council on Economic Educa-

tion was requesting the University's endorsement of a req-

quest which would provide funds to the two Universities.



Nevada State Council on Economic Education - Chancellor

Humphrey introduced Mr. Paul Garwood, Chairman of the Nevada

State Council on Economic Education. Mr. Paul Garwood re-

viewed the functions of the Council and explained briefly

what the Council hoped would be accomplished if their re-

quest is granted. He urged the Board's endorsement of a

request to the Legislature for an appropriation of $80,000

to be shared equally by UNR and UNLV to fund teaching posi-

tions in economic education. (Mr. Garwood's statement

filed with permanent minutes.)



Amargosa Field Laboratory ($44,300) and Newlands Project

Water Study ($19,829) - Dean Dale Bohmont spoke concerning

these two requests for supplemental appropriations and the

history of their introduction by individual Legislators.

(Bills referred to are AB 119, introduced by Assemblyman

Hafen, requesting $44,300 for agricultural and research

demonstration in Amargosa Valley, and AB 157, introduced by

Assemblymen Getto, Howard, Dini and Ashworth, requesting

$19,829 to make a study of application, use of irrigation

water in Newland Project.)



Mr. Jacobsen expressed concern that legislation outside the

University's approved legislative program had not received

the same review and evaluation as had other programs but

would be competing with the University's total request.



Dean Bohmont noted that these bills were not introduced at

the request of the College of Agriculture.



Mr. Bilbray suggested when a bill is sponsored by other than

the University, the Legislature should be aware of this.



Chancellor Humphrey pointed that these 3 requests, plus the

proposal by Dr. Libke for an athletic appropriation, are

similar in that they will all benefit the University. He

suggested that the latter 3 would have substantial legisla-

tive support and there will also be substantial support for

the athletic appropriation. However, he stated, somewhere

along the line a total figure for the University will be

determined and any request that goes in with the Board of

Regents approval will compete for a part of that total

figure. He recommended that the existence of the bills be

acknowledged and if the appropriation is made as requested

the University will accomplish the work requested.



Mr. Steninger moved that the Board acknowledge the existence

of AB 119 and AB 157 without position and that the Board

instruct the Administration to work with the Nevada Council

on Economic Education to accommodate the program proposed

as soon as possible. Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen.



Dr. Todd stated that it would be important for the Council

to know whether the Board would approve and support bringing

this to the attention of the Legislature. Mr. Steninger

said he believed it was a very good program but it would be

a mistake to disrupt work done on the budget by introducing

new legislation which would compete.



Mr. Steninger withdrew his motion and as a substitute, moved

that the Board of Regents acknowledge the existence of AB

119 and AB 157 without position. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried with Mr. Bilbray opposing.



Mr. Mc Dermott asked if there was any possibility of accom-

modating the economic education program without seeking a

supplemental appropriation. President Miller said it would

not be possible at UNR. Dr. Zorn stated that UNLV can do

something although probably not in the manner recommended.



Mr. Hug moved that the Board recognize the program of the

Nevada Council on Economic Education and that, if the legis-

lation is introduced by them for programs to be introduced

on the University Campus, the University would support such

programs provided they are funded by the Legislature. Mo-

tion seconded by Dr. Anderson carried with Mr. Morris oppos-

sing.



Mr. Jacobsen suggested further discussion on Mr. Morris'

proposal be deferred until after the ASUN Constitution had

been discussed.



28. ASUN Constitution



President Miller noted that the ASUN Constitution had not

been reviewed and approved by the Board; however, a copy of

the document had been submitted to the Attorney General for

his review and was now ready for review by the Board of

Regents. He recommended approval of the Constitution as

submitted with the agenda (document filed with permanent

minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey commented that, in his opinion, the

endorsement by the Board of Regents of this document is

important since it assumes the nature of a contract between

the Board of Regents and student government and the Board

should be prepared to abide by what the ASUN Constitution

provides if it is approved by the Board. He said there were

several provisions in the proposed constitution which he did

not believe were totally acceptable or which needed clarifi-

cation and recommended against approval of the Constitution

for the following reasons:



(1) Art. 11, Sec. 230.1 gives the ASUN Senate authority to

enact "statutes" which are defined as "laws which

implement provisions of the Constitution".



Chancellor Humphrey suggested this is a broad grant

of authority and needs to be clearly defined as to what

delegation the Board of Regents is making to Student

government. How much control, for example, is ASUN to

have over the individual student, or student organiza-

tions, living groups, etc.? He suggested that perhaps

a Presidential review and approval of such statutes is

desirable if the grant of authority is to be this

large, or perhaps the authority of the Senate to adopt

statutes needs additional definition.



(2) Art. IV, Sec. 410.2 gives the Finance Control Board the

power to allot all ASUN fees.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that he agreed that ASUN

should have this authority but also noted that the

Board of Regents has in the past agreed to impose in-

creases in ASUN fees upon the students based upon

specific understandings of how the money would be used;

e. g., for athletics or the marching band. He suggest-

ed that if the Finance Control Board is to have author-

ity over the distribution of ASUN revenue, before the

Constitution is adopted, the Board of Regents should

review the ASUN fee and determine if that fee is still

acceptable.



(3) Art. V, Sec. 520.2 provides that the Judicial Council

has authority "to render decisions of acquittal, warn-

ing and probation".



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that this precludes the

Dean of Students and the President from reviewing the

sanction invoked unless the Judicial Council recommends

suspension or expulsion.



Mr. Barbagelata presented his recommendations for revision

to the document, agreeing with the reservations expressed by

Chancellor Humphrey, and noting additional areas which he

stated should be clarified.



Mr. Jacobsen stated that he believed enough questions had

been raised to indicate that further study was desirable and

asked for a motion to refer this back to the Administration.

It was agreed to defer further discussion until after the

luncheon break.



The Board reconvened at 2:15 P.M.



Discussion was resumed on the ASUN Constitution.



Mr. Bilbray moved that those sections of the Constitution

not in dispute be ratified. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen.



Mr. Steninger moved that the matter be tabled. Motion

seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried by the following roll

call vote:



Yes - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Hug, Mr. Jacobsen, Mr.

Mc Dermott, Mr. Steninger

No - Mr. Bilbray, Mrs. Knudtsen, Mr. Morris,

Miss Thompson



Mr. Jacobsen asked for a motion setting a definte time dur-

ing which this matter would be reconsidered.



Mr. Bilbray moved the ASUN Constitution be given interim

approval subject to review and modification by the Board of

Regents on or before the April meeting, and the document

be referred to the Administration, the Attorney General and

ASUN for further study and referral back to the Board

through the Student Affairs Committee. Motion seconded by

Mr. Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



29. Student Evaluation of Instruction



President Miller submitted for information a form which is

being used for student evaluation of instruction at UNR. He

noted that the form was approved by the UNR Undergraduate

Council and participation will be voluntary. The forms will

be returned to ASUN, statistics will be compiled and made

available only for the information of instructors. (Form is

filed with permanent minutes.)



30. Change in Meeting Dates



Upon motion by Miss Thompson, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, the

following changes were made in Regents calendar for 1971:



April meeting was changed from April 9-10 to April 23-24.

May meeting was changed from May 7-8 to May 28-29.



31. DRI National Advisory Board Report



Dr. Ward commented on the report of the National Advisory

Board report filed with the Chancellor's Office following

the annual meeting of the Advisory Board in Reno in October,

1970. (Report identified as Ref. R and filed with perman-

ent minutes.)



Dr. Ward stated that review by this group is of benefit to

DRI and its programs and it is hoped that the Advisory

Board's interest in the Institute will continue. Chancellor

Humphrey recommended acceptance of the report.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



32. Permission to Acquire Land



Dr. Ward requested authority to acquire for DRI 467.33 acres

of BLM land at a total cost of $1168.33 to provide a central

location for the Institute and its programs. The land under

consideration is located near Hug High School, Reno and is

available at a cost of $2.50 per acre.



Dr. Ward noted that at present the research laboratories,

centers and offices of DRI are split between the Stead

facility and the northern part of the UNR Campus, resulting

in a number of inconveniences detrimental to operation of

the Institute. Detailed justification for acquisition of

the land and consolidation of DRI activities is contained

in Ref. S, filed with permanent minutes.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that:



(1) Permission be granted to apply for land as requested

by Dr. Ward;



(2) Authority be granted to DRI to proceed with applica-

tions for Federal grants for construction purposes;



(3) It be agreed that consideration will not be given to

State funding for such projects before 1975; and



(4) DRI proceed to develop its capital improvement plans

for inclusion on a UNS capital improvement priority

list so that consideration might be secured for non-

appropriated construction funds.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that permission be granted to apply for the

BLM land as requested.



There was discussion concerning the consolidation of DRI

activities, particularly as it related to the facilities

at Stead. Chancellor Humphrey agreed that by giving DRI

authority to apply for construction money as recommended in

(2) above, the Board should recognize if the application

is successful DRI would eventually be moving much of its

operation from Stead. These recommendations were carefully

reviewed with the Board by Dr. Ward, Mr. Humphrey and Mr.

Jacobsen in order that there would be no misunderstanding

of the intent.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that the recommendations contained in (2),

(3) and (4) above be approved.



33. Revised Statement of Funding, 1970-71



Dr. Ward presented a revised statement of funding for DRI

for 1970-71 with the following explanation:



At the November Board of Regents meeting, the state-

ment of funding indicated a potential deficit in CWRR

of $61,191. The present report shows that this poten-

tial estimated deficit has been reduced to $14,680.

We are assuming that it will be reduced to zero in this

fiscal year for the following reasons:



(1) A number of CWRR grants and contracts for this

fiscal year are in the pending category. The

largest would be the FWQA proposal with a start

date of December 1, 1970. The figures for FWQA

Adjusted for this fiscal year would be a total of

$113,472 including $43,085 in the wages and sal-

ary category.



(2) If additional grants and contracts are not awarded

CWRR for this fiscal year, expenditures can be

reduced to relieve the potential deficit.



This report projects an estimated surplus for FY 71 of

$49,778. In the process of developing these figures,

we have set aside $9000 for unexpected year-end deficit.

All authorized deficit accounts are presumed cleared to

zero by the end of the fiscal year in accordance with

the revenue and expenditure statements submitted with

the request for deficit authorization.



A significant factor in the project surplus is of a

nonrecurring nature, that due to positive adjustments

in the rate of indirect cost recovery for previous

years. Involved are $25,997 from the Bureau of Recla-

mation and approximately $16,000 from AEC. The AEC has

forwarded $11,371 to date leaving a balance of accounts

receivable of $4655. An increase in number of grants

and contracts has caused us to revise our estimate of

indirect cost recovery from $350,000 in November 1970

funding plan to $375,000 for the present plan. (Revised

statement of funding identified as Ref. T and filed with

permanent minutes.)



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the revised

financial plan for 1970-71 as presented.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



34. Symposium in Honor of Dr. Bruce Dill



President Zorn requested $2,000 of non-appropriated money

to hold a symposium in honor of Dr. Bruce Dill, Research

Professor, Desert Research Institute. Dr. Zorn noted Dr.

Dill will be celebrating his 80th birthday in April, which

would be an appropriate time for the University to honor

him. (See Ref. U, filed with permanent minutes for addi-

tional details of the proposal.)



Chancellor Humphrey recommended $2,000 be allocated from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund for this purpose.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



35. Quarterly Report Concerning Complaints Filed



In accordance with the requirements of the Interim Rules,

President Zorn submitted a report for the period of Septem-

ber 15 through December 15, 1970. (Report identified as

Ref. V and filed with the permanent minutes.)



36. Pass-Fail Program



President Zorn presented, with his endorsement, a recommen-

dation by the UNLV Faculty Senate for the introduction of a

limited pass-fail academic grading option, as follows:



(1) Each student may take at most one course per semester

on a pass-fail basis up to a maximum of 24 undergrad-

uate credit hours.



(2) The instructor shall know which of his students are

registered in his course under the pass-fail option.



(3) Grades earned by a student in a class in which he is

enrolled under the pass-fail option are not computed in

his grade point average.



(4) All other requirements and conditions shall be deter-

mined by the separate colleges except that there shall

be uniform registration procedures throughout the

University.



(5) Changes in the above four items can be made by (a

majority vote of) the Faculty Senate.



President Zorn recommended approval, effective Spring semes-

ter 1971. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Miss Thompson, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



37. Exception to Policy Concerning Phase II Program Presentation



President Zorn requested an exception to the policy concern-

ing the Phase II program presentation to permit him to hire

a Director for the baccalaureate program in architecture who

would be responsible for developing the Phase II presenta-

tion. (See Ref. X, filed with permanent minutes.)



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval subject to a review

when the 1971-72 Work Program is developed and with the un-

derstanding that the Phase II presentation which is finally

developed would be subject to the same review as other

presentations.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



38. Report of the Committee of the Whole



Mr. Hug moved that the minutes of the Committee of the Whole

meeting of January 7, 1971 be approved as distributed and

the recommendations of the Committee concerning the Phase II

presentations be approved. Motion seconded by Mr. Steninger

and carried without dissent. Minutes are as follows:



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Hug at 9:15 A.M.



1. Phase II Presentation



A. Master of Arts in Speech and Theatre Arts



Vice President Baepler and Dr. Steven Neilsen made

a Phase II presentation on the Master of Arts in

Speech and Theatre Arts which is proposed for in-

itiation at UNLV during the 1971-73 biennium.

2. Interim Rules and Disciplinary Procedures for Members of

the University Community



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in December a document

was presented on behalf of the Coordinating Council

recommending changes to the Interim Rules and Procedures

adopted June 12, 1970. The Board requested that an

additional attempt be made prior to the January meeting

to develop a document which would include only one set

of procedures, instead of four as had been proposed.



Accordingly Chancellor Humphrey reported, a meeting was

called for December 18. Included were Presidents and

Directors, the members of the Coordinating Council and

such representatives of the students and alumni as each

President designated. This group of 21 did not attempt

to redraft the procedures, rather it developed fourteen

statements of consensus concerning what the procedures

should include. The Presidents and Directors then each

designated one faculty member to sit as a member of the

drafting committee to revise procedures in conformity

with these fourteen items.



(The drafting committee consisted of Don Fowler, DRI,

designated Chairman by the Chancellor; Robert Gorrell,

UNR; Paul Aizley, UNLV and George Nicholls, representing

CCD.)



In the discussion following, agreement was reached on

amendments to the Interim Rules' sections devoted to

Preamble, Introduction, Rules and Sanctions. That

section of the document as amended is attached.



In the discussion concerning procedures, agreement was

reached on the following points:



(1) The Board of Regents shall take only appeals and

only then in cases of removal from the University;

i. e., termination of an employee or expulsion of

a student.



(2) A Hearing Officer, as proposed in the procedures

recommended by Mr. Bell, was favored. This Hearing

Officer should be a fact finder in both student and

employee hearings.



(3) Provision for immediate suspension, as proposed by

Mr. Bell, was favored.



(4) Provision for administrative hearings, as proposed

by Mr. Bell, was favored.



It was further agreed that the two documents, i. e., the

Coordinating Council document as amended by the drafting

committee, and the document submitted by Mr. Bell, will be

referred to the Deputy Attorney General who will be request-

ed to draft a set of procedures embracing the points of

agreement as reflected above. This set of procedures will

then be referred to Coordinating Council prior to further

consideration by the Board of Regents at its March meeting.



The Interim Rules and Procedures as adopted in June 1970,

will remain in effect until further amendments are made to

the Procedures section of the document in March. However,

it was agreed that adoption of the Preamble, Introduction,

Rules and Sanctions made further discussion of those sec-

tions unnecessary.



Mr. Mc Dermott reported the actions of the Committee of the

Whole meeting of February 12, 1971 and moved that the Board

approve the Committee's recommendations that the Phase II

proposals for a Bachelor of Science in Law Enforcement,

Master of Science in Information and Computer Sciences, and

Master of Science in Nursing, all at UNR, be approved, sub-

ject to funding in 1971-73 and the Ph. D. proposal in

Agriculture at UNR be authorized to proceed to Phase II.

Motion seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried without dissent.

40. Fee for Auditing a Course



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the present approved fee for

auditing a course at UNR and UNLV is $9 per credit equiva-

lent, plus $3 per credit equivalent capital improvement fee.

The UNLV catalog reflects this fee; however, the UNR catalog

shows the fee to be $10 per credit equivalent, plus $3 per

credit equivalent capital improvement fee. The audit fee

was not changed when the registration fee was set at $16 per

credit plus $3 per credit capital improvement fee.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the fee be set at $10

per credit equivalent plus $3 per credit equivalent capital

improvement fee, effective at UNR and UNLV upon the con-

forming of their catalogs to the change.



He further recommended that the fee for audit of courses at

the Community Colleges be set at $8 per credit equivalent

plus $2 per credit equivalent capital improvement fee, ef-

fective Fall 1971.



Motion by Mr. Steninger, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

Mr. Morris requested consideration of the following

resolution:



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents has recognized the respective

student governments of UNLV and UNR; and



WHEREAS, the respective Student Body Presidents are elected

by the total student community on each Campus as the chief

student executive officer.



THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Regents hereby

recognizes the UNR and UNLV Student Body Presidents as the

official student representatives of the respective Campuses,

and further resolve that in order to benefit the University

of Nevada System we request that the official student repre-

sentatives be in attendance at all regular Board of Regents

meetings, and expenses incurred by their attendance be borne

by the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Morris, carried

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted.



42. Additional Review of Legislative Program



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in October, 1970, the

Board authorized the drafting of legislation concerning:



(1) jurisdiction off Campus of the University Police, and

(2) utilization of archaeology resources,



with the understanding that the Board would further review

these matters following additional staff discussion and pri-

or to introduction of the legislation. Chancellor Humphrey

presented a draft of proposed legislation concerning juris-

diction off Campus of University Police with his recommenda-

tion that the draft be approved and enactment of the legis-

lation be sought (draft on file in the Chancellor's Office).

islation concerning utilization of archaeology resources

actment of the legislation be requested only after full
