3. Memorial Resolution



President Zorn spoke of the recent death of Dr. A. Rex

Johnson and requested consideration of the following mem-

orial statement:



STATEMENT FOR ADOPTION BY THE BOARD OF REGENTS



Sincere sorrow is expressed by the Regents over the death

of Dr. A. Rex Johnson, 71, a veteran and beloved faculty

member of the College of Business and Economics at the

University of Nevada, Las Vegas.



Dr. Johnson joined the School of Business at UNLV in 1963,

following a distinguished career as Professor of Business

Administration at George Washington University, the Uni-

versity of Maryland, and Brigham Young University.



He was instrumental in initiating many of the major modi-

fications in the Business Programs here as Chairman of the

Business and Economics Division.



During his years as Chief Administrator, Dr. Johnson was

the key figure in the establishment of the first graduate

courses in Business at the University. He was responsible

for the creation of the Hotel Administration Program -- now

a College in its own right. Despite intermittent ill health

during his seven years at UNLV, Dr. Johnson continued full-

time instruction until 1968, when his teaching load was re-

duced to half-time. He remained on that post-retirement

basis through the first semester of the current academic

year.



In addition to this education accomplishments, Dr. Johnson

provided leadership for several years in the national

government as Director of the Navy Graduate Financial

Management Program and as a member of the Board of Exam-

iners of the U. S. Foreign Service. For his outstanding

work with the U. S. Department of Agriculture, he was

decorated by the French government with the Cross of

Chevalier de Merite Agricole. Throughout his life, he

was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of

Latter Day Saints.



Dr. Johnson was respected and honored by his students and

his faculty colleagues. Today, the University stands as a

much richer Institution because he gave generously of pro-

fessional expertise and wise counsel. The Board of Regents

extends its sympathy to his widow, Edith, his two children,

and nine grandchildren.



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

out dissent that the above statement be adopted.

and experimental Dance Laboratory insures that the project

(Estimated Cost = $42.18 per sq. ft.)



Mr. Mc Daniel estimated that it would require $6 million to

finish the project the way it was originally planned.



Mr. Jacobsen stated that this would mean a commitment of

nearly $10 million to build both phases of the project. He

expressed concern that the rest of the University might

suffer severe restrictions because so much money would be

required for this project.



Mr. Mc Daniel stated that it is not unusual for this type

of project to cost in excess of $10 million.



Dr. Zorn stated that this project would have to take its

place as a project within the priorities.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Dr. White, carried without

dissent that the final plans and specifications be approved

as submitted.



Before reviewing the status of the financing for the Per-

forming Arts Project, Dr. Zorn requested consideration by

the Board of a recommendation that property given to UNLV

for the benefit of the Performing Arts Center be sold. He

recalled that Mr. A. W. Ham, Jr. gave UNLV a 5% interest

in real property located near Las Vegas as part of his con-

tribution to the Performing Arts Center. This property was

subsequently advertised for sale and the single bid received

was for $16,592.65, the appraisal price, from Mr. Ham. Mr.

Zorn recommended the sale be approved by the Board. Chan-

cellor Humphrey concurred in the above recommendation sub-

ject to the required approval by the Attorney General and

the Governor.



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

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



President Zorn reviewed the financing of the Performing

Arts Project and submitted a report on the current status

of the funds available, as follows:

(a) Of the $760,000 pledged, $180,000 had been

collected. The difference of $294,038 (i. e.,

$474,038 less $180,000) was assumed available

uncollected pledges and capitalized interest.



(b) Reported to be available by President Zorn.



(c) Subject to sale of bonds at 7% interest or less.



(d) Limited to purchase of equipment and furniture

detailed in grant application.



Dr. Zorn pointed out that, assuming the UNLV Revenue Bonds

could be sold, there is still $127,000 less available than

the total required in the project budget. He recommended

the following:



(1) an interest free loan of $100,000 be made to this proj-

ect from the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund,

to be repaid as gift pledges are paid and as a first

lien upon those pledges;



(2) the project budget be reduced $27,000 by reduction of

the site development allocation; and



(3) the capital fee fund advance also be considered a loan,

repayable from gift payments, with the understanding

that UNLV Administration may, at a later date, request

the Board to authorize the use of this money on the

project rather than repaying the Capital Improvement

Fee Fund.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred in the above recommendations.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



7. Agreement with State Planning Board



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that an agreement between

the University and the State Planning Board be approved

which stipulates that the University would provide the sum

of $2,119,038 (less $27,000) toward the construction of the

Performing Arts Center (copy of agreement filed with perm-

anent minutes).



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

without dissent that the agreement be approved as recommend-

ed.



8. Approval of Requests for Non-Appropriated Money



A. President Zorn spoke of the need to microfilm the

Registrar's student records as protection against the

hazards of fire, theft, or vandalism. However, he

said, the $3000 required is not available within the

UNLV budget and requested that funds be made available

from other sources.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the necessary

$3000 be transferred from the Alice P. Dimmitt Endow-

ment Income Account (1-51-7002, present balance of

$3064), an unrestricted endowment fund, to a special

account for this purpose.



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

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



B. President Zorn also spoke of the need to make provision

to transfer to UNLV on July 1 the accounting function

now being performed for that Campus by the UNR Control-

ler's Office. He noted that the UNLV Work Program for

1970-71 will provide the necessary funds after July 1,

1970; however, approximately $8772 will be required

during the month of June for staff salaries, machine

rentals and printing to cover transitional costs. He

requested consideration be given to an allocation for

this purpose from sources other than the UNLV budget.



Chancellor Humphrey agreed with the desirability of

providing a training period for UNLV staff before

the transfer of this function and identified five

unrestricted endowment accounts from which $3000

could be made available for this purpose. He recom-

mended approval of a transfer of this amount to a

special account for the assistance of the UNLV Con-

troller's Office. He further suggested that other

possibilities of assistance be explored and a subse-

quent recommendation be made in March.



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

without dissent that above recommendation be approved.



9. Student Bill of Rights



President Miller recalled that on January 23, 1970, the

Student Affairs Committee met to review that part of the

proposed Student Bill of Rights upon which the Attorney

General had reported, i. e., Preamble through IV, A. A

number of changes were suggested and agreed to by those

present; however, a quorum of the Committee was not present

so action was not considered final. As agreed, President

Miller submitted a report which he had prepared comparing

each provision of the proposed Student Bill of Rights with

existing Board of Regents policy (report filed with perman-

ent minutes).



President Miller requested that Section II, Paragraph B be

corrected to read: "Students shall have protection through

orderly procedures, as established by the President of UNR,

against prejudiced or capricious academic evaluation."



There was discussion concerning the provisions of Section

III, Paragraph F which reads: "Provision shall also be

made for periodic destruction of non-current disciplinary

files, except those cases of expulsion or suspension."



Jim Hardesty expressed objection to the retention of dis-

ciplinary files noting that this provision had been added

at the request of the Student Affairs Committee. Mr.

Bilbray supported the objection.



Mr. Bell asked what provision had been made to cover court

action; e. g., a subpoena. It was agreed that this had

been covered in the original document, but had been inad-

vertently omitted from the report prepared by President

Miller. The omitted material is as follows:



Section III, Paragraph E.



4. Properly identified officials from federal, state,

and local government agencies may be given the

following information upon express request in

addition to that in Subsection 1 and 2: name and

address of parent or guardian if student is a

minor, and any information required under legal

compulsion.



5. Unless under legal compulsion, personal access to a

student's file shall be denied to any person making

an inquiry.



Dr. White moved that final action be deferred until the next

meeting and that the University proceed to act in the spirit

of what had been discussed. Motion failed for lack of a

second.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that Paragraph F of Section III be amend-

ed to strike the words "except the cases of expulsion or

suspension". Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray.



Mr. Walsh suggested that some consideration be given to the

possibilities surrounding such action. For example, he

asked if a student should not be able to go back to the

record to prove what was involved in his suspension or

expulsion. Also, should a Law Agency be able to consult

a record in the event of civil action.



Mr. Hardesty said he did not believe the University should

be in the position of protecting a student's character

nor of supporting investigation of a Law Officer.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that action be tabled until later in the

day. Motion was not seconded.



Mr. Bell expressed concern that destruction of records would

remove evidence which supported the record of suspension or

expulsion, noting that the fact of suspension or expulsion

would be noted on the student's permanent academic record.

He suggested that destruction of such records would prove

to be a hindrance to possible civil action, particularly

in the case of violence.



President Miller suggested that any violence committed by

a student would most likely result in Police action and

would therefore result in a Police record. In the case of

expulsion, since this action may take place only with

Board of Regents approval, which would logically occur in

an Executive Session of the Board, there would be an offi-

cial record in the minutes of the Board of the resons for

the expulsion.



Mr. Grant suggested striking the words, "or suspension".



Dr. White questioned why the University should be concerned

with keeping records to be used in the event of some future

civil court action.



Mr. Walsh pointed out that the welfare of the community as

well as the welfare of students must be considered. He

pointed out that expulsion might not always involve reasons

for Police action. He also suggested that the Board of

Regents record would not be a sufficient record.



Mr. Hardesty asked if an expulsion is important after five

years if there was not Police action involved.



Mr. Jacobsen asked for action on his earlier motion to

strike the words "except those cases of expulsion or sus-

pension". Mr. Grant moved that the motion be amended to

strike only the words "or suspension". Motion to amend

failed for lack of second.



Original motion received the following roll call vote and

failed to carry:



Mr. Bell No

Mr. Bilbray Yes

Mr. Grant No

Mr. Jacobsen Yes

Mr. Ronzone Yes

Dr. White No



Mr. Grant moved to strike only the words "or suspension".

Motion seconded by Dr. White, carried with Mr. Bilbray

opposing.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that the Preamble through Section IV, A

be approved as amended and with the addition of Section III,

E 4 and 5 as noted. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray.



Mr. Walsh spoke of modifications to Section IV, A 2 which

Mr. Hug had requested; i. e., to add "unless such organi-

zation has demonstrated a purpose to engage in illegal

activities."



Mr. Hardesty said he believed that it was implied and there-

fore was not necessary to include the additional wording.



Mr. Walsh agreed that the wording need not be included as

long as the record reflected agreement on the implication.



Motion carried without dissent.



Following is the Preamble through Section IV, A as amended

and approved:



STUDENT BILL OF RIGHTS



University of Nevada

Reno, Nevada



PREAMBLE



The University of Nevada exists for the transmission of

knowledge, the pursuit of truth, the development of

students, and the general well-being of society. Free

inquiry and free expression are indispensable to the

attainment of these goals. As members of the academic

community, students should be encouraged to develop the

capacity for critical judgment and to engage in a sus-

tained and independent search for truth. Freedom to

teach and freedom to learn are inseparable facets of

academic freedom. The freedom to learn depends upon

opportunities and conditions in the classroom, on the

Campus, and in the larger community.



The responsibility to secure and to respect general

conditions conducive to the freedom to learn is jointly

shared by all members of the academic community. Stu-

dents exercising the rights and freedoms defined in

this document shall do so with concomitant responsi-

bilities as prerequisites for achievement of the edu-

cational objectives involved. Freedom to teach and

freedom to learn are alike dependent upon modes of

individual and collective conduct as permit the order-

ly exchange and pursuit of knowledge and opinion. A

regard for the University as a physical as well as a

social entity is a condition of its satisfactory func-

tioning.



The University of Nevada has a duty to develop policies

and procedures which provide and safeguard these con-

ditions. Policies and procedures should be developed

at the University of Nevada within a framework of gen-

eral standards and with the broadest possible partici-

pation of the members of the academic community.



The purpose of the following is to enumerate essential

student freedom. The term "student" shall herein refer

to any person registered at the University for any

course at any level.



I. FREEDOM OF ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION



The University of Nevada shall admit students without

regard to race, religion, or political belief.



All facilities of the University, including the serv-

ices for health, recreation, living and study shall be

open to all students who meet the entrance qualifica-

tions and who maintain current such academic qualifica-

tions as may be required by the University.



The University should use its influence to secure equal

access for all students to public facilities in the

local community.



II. IN THE CLASSROOM



The Professor in the classroom and in conference shall

encourage free discussion, inquiry, and expression.

Student performance shall be evaluated solely on an

academic basis, not on opinions or conduct in matters

unrelated to academic standards.



A. Protection of Freedom of Expression



Students shall be free to take reasoned exception

by legal means to the data or views offered in any

course of study and to reserve judgment about mat-

ters of opinion, but they shall be responsible for

learning the context of any course of study for

which they are enrolled.



B. Protection Against Improper Academic Evaluation



Students shall have protection through orderly pro-

cedures as established by the President of the Uni-

versity against prejudiced or capricious academic

evaluation. At the same time, they shall be re-

sponsible for maintaining standards of academic per-

formance established for each course in which they

are enrolled.



C. Protection Against Improper Disclosure



The teacher-student relationship is a unique one

in our society. Information about student views,

beliefs, and political associations which Profes-

sors acquire through private consultations and pri-

vate classroom work intended to be seen only by the

Professors shall be considered confidential. Pro-

tection against unreasonable and improper disclo-

sures about student views, beliefs, and political

associations which Professors acquire in the class-

room is a serious professional obligation. Judgment

of ability (academic evaluation) and character (re-

lated to the discipline of study) may be provided

under appropriate circumstances, normally with the

knowledge or consent of the student.



III. STUDENT RECORDS



A. The privacy and confidentiality of all student

records shall be preserved. Official student aca-

demic records, supporting documents, and other stu-

dent files shall be maintained only by full-time

members of the institution staff employed for that

purpose. Separate files shall be maintained of the

following:



academic record

supporting documents

general education records

records of discipline proceedings

medical and psychiatric records

financial aid records



B. No entry may be made on a student's academic record

and no document may be placed in his file without

actual notice to the students. Publication of

grades and announcement of honors constitute notice.



C. Access to his records and files is guaranteed every

student subject only to reasonable regulation as to

time, place and supervision.



1. A student may challenge the accuracy of any

entry or the presence of any item by bringing

an objection directed to the Chairman of the

Referrals Board.



D. No record may be made in relation to any of the fol-

lowing matters except upon the express written re-

quest of the student:



1. Race

2. Religion

3. Political or Social Views

4. Membership in any organization other than honor-

ary and professional organizations directly re-

lated to the educational process.



E. No information in any student file may be released

to anyone except with the prior written consent of

the student concerned or as stated below:



1. Members of the faculty with administrative

assignments may have access for internal edu-

cational purposes as well as routinely neces-

sary administrative and statistical purposes.



2. The following data may be given any inquirer:



school or division of enrollment

periods of enrollment and degrees awarded

honors

major field

date



3. If an inquiry is made in person or by mail,

the following information may be given in

addition to that in Subsection B:



address and telephone number

date of birth

confirmation of signature



4. Properly identified officials from federal,

state and local government agencies may be

given the following information upon express

request in addition to that in Subsection B

and C:



name and address of parent or guardian,

if student is a minor

any information required under legal

compulsion



5. Unless under legal compulsion, personal access

to a student's file shall be denied to any per-

son making an inquiry.



F. Provision shall be also made for periodic destruc-

tion of non-current disciplinary files, except

those cases of expulsion.



IV. STUDENT AFFAIRS



A. Freedom of Association



1. For any legal purpose students shall be free

to organize and join associations to promote

their common interests and shall be free to

determine their own membership, policies and

actions.



2. Affiliation with an extramural organization

shall not in itself affect recognition of a

student organization.



3. Campus organizations which include students,

including those affiliated with an extramural

organization, shall be open to all students

without respect to race, creed or national

origin. They shall not be required to submit

a membership list as a condition of institu-

tional recognition.



10. Change of Department Name



President Miller presented, with his recommendation for

approval, a request from Dean Cain of the College of Edu-

cation, that the title of the Department of General Profes-

sional Education be changed to Department of Educational

Foundations in order to clearly indicate that this Depart-

ment offers the core, foundational courses of the College

at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



11. Effie Mona Mack Bequest



Dr. Miller reported that Dr. Effie Mona Mack had bequeathed

$1309 to the University of Nevada, Reno, but the will had

not further specified the purpose of the bequest. Dr.

Miller recommended that this money be used to defray a part

of the expense which will be incurred by the University

Press in publishing Dr. Wilbur Shepperson's book on Nevada

immigration. He said he believed it to be a particularly

appropriate use of monies from Dr. Mack to publish a book

concerning Nevada history by a prominent Nevada historian.

The book would, of course, include appropriate acknowledge-

ment to Dr. Mack.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



12. Approval of Request to Purchase Property



President Miller recommended that Business Manager Pine be

authorized to negotiate the purchase of residential property

at 1170 North Sierra Street, presently owned by Mr. A. H.

Carter. He noted that this purchase would give the Univer-

sity ownership of all property on North Sierra from the

east-west access road to the Nye Hall parking lot to the

corner of North Virginia and Artemisia Way. The property

has been appraised for the University by Dale C. Bell,

M. A. I.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that Mr. Pine be authorized

to purchase this property from the UNR Capital Improvement

Fee Fund at an amount not to exceed the appraised value.

He further recommended that authorization be given to either

remove the house or raze it during the Summer (as had al-

ready been authorized for adjoining property) in order that

the landscaping of the area around Nye Hall might be com-

pleted.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



13. Approval of Purchase in Excess of $5000, UNR



President Miller reported that the State Printer had auth-

orized UNR to solicit commercial bids for printing the

1970-71 catalog. The following bids were opened January 15

for 25,000 catalogs:



Peninsula Litho Co., Menlo Park $21,850.00



Cal-Central Press, Sacramento 30,951.68



President Miller recommended that the contract be awarded

to Peninsula Litho Co. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



14. Construction of "Health Related Facility"



President Miller recalled that in January, 1967, the Board

of Regents pledged the use of $300,000 from the sale of

Valley Road Farm land to the State Highway Department, for

the construction of a "health related facility" to be used

cooperatively by the Max C. Fleischmann College of Agricul-

ture and the School of Medical Sciences. In July, 1969,

the Board designated Edward S. Parsons, A. I. A., as the

architect for this facility, and a contract has been exe-

cuted. A proposal for a Federal grant of $300,000 has

recently been submitted.



Dr. Miller continued by noting that when the architect was

designated, the Board of Regents specified that an agree-

ment should be developed with the State Planning Board for

the involvement of that body in the construction of this

facility and that such an agreement should be submitted to

the Board of Regents for approval. He noted that a formal

agreement has not been developed to date but that nego-

tiations are progressing.



15. Dr. Juanita White introduced Mr. Clifford Segerblom who,

she stated, was one of two artists selected by NASA to view

and illustrate the splashdown of the Apollo II moonshot.

She further identified Mr. Segerblom as a part-time member

of the UNLV Art Department. The meeting adjourned for

purposes of viewing some of Mr. Segerblom's photographic

slides taken during the splashdown.



The meeting reconvened at 1:25 P.M.



16. Physical Science Project, Phase II, UNR



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the financing and project

budget as follows:



1. Financing of Project



Approved Presum Avail

Feb. 1970



State Appropriation $ 165,400 $ 165,400

State G. O. Bonds 221,638 221,638

UNR Cap. Imp. Fee Fund Cash 150,000 350,000

$2,972,000 $2,772,000



(a) Subject to sale of bonds at 7% interest or less.



(b) If the Governor had not vetoed the HEW appro-

priation, $73,000 would have been available.



2. Project Budget



Architect-Engineer's Fee $ 157,300

Construction 2,517,000

Bond Sale Expense 19,000

Material Testing 2,000

Furnishings 171,000

Advertising 200

Sewer Connection Fee 4,000

$2,972,000



He noted the increase in the allocation from the UNR Cap-

ital Improvement Fee Fund from $150,000 to $350,000 to off-

set the Title I Fund of $200,000 which was presumed would

be available, but is not.



President Miller recommended approval of the suggested

financing. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Mr. Pine reviewed the final plans and specifications for

the project and recommended approval by the Board of Reg-

ents. President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



17. Zoning Requests



Mr. Pine reported that a hearing had been scheduled for

February 17, 1970, concerning a request to rezone 54 acres

of land, between Kleppe Lane and the Truckee River, to per-

mit mobile home sites. He recommended that no opposition

be offered to the rezoning.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Mr. Pine reported that a hearing had also been scheduled

concerning a request for a change in zoning for property

at 1035 North Sierra from its present classification of

CIA to one which would permit a laundromat. Mr. Pine

recommended that no opposition be offered at the hearing.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, that the

above recommendation be approved, was defeated with Mr.

Jacobsen and Dr. White opposed.



(Note: By-Laws require five affirmative votes to carry

an issue.)



18. Progress Report on University Projects



Mr. Pine presented a report on the progress of UNR Capital

Improvement Projects and a report from the State Planning

Board was distributed (both reports are on file in the

Chancellor's Office).



19. Purchases in Excess of $5000, DRI



A. Acting Director Warburton presented a request for ap-

proval of the purchase of an emission spectrograph and

accessories from the Jarell Ash Division of Fisher

Scientific Co. at a price not to exceed $24,650. He

noted that this company is the only source for this

instrument which was developed in conformity with the

U. S. Geological Survey specifications. The Fleisch-

mann Foundation grant is the source of funds and the

Foundation trustees have approved the purchase.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above purchase be approved as

recommended.



B. Mr. Warburton presented a request for approval to pur-

chase an atomic absorption spectrophometer for the

Desert Biology Laboratory.



Bids received were:



Varian Techtron AA-120 $5495 including partial

installation



Perkin-Elmer 303AA (used) 5013 plus installation



Beckman Model 440 (used) 5340 plus installation



Mr. Warburton noted that the two used spectrophotometers

are considered less desirable and recommended that the

bid be awarded for the Varian Techtron AA-120.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approv-

ed.



20. Change in Authority of Director of DRI



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the DRI, UNR and UNLV

Faculty Senates had all taken action concerning the original

DRI request for increased authority for DRI. He noted that

since the various faculty actions were conflicting, the

matter was referred to the Coordinating Council. The Coun-

cil voted to recommend that the Board amend its By-Laws to

provide that DRI be "placed on the same administrative basis

as UNR and UNLV" and that the Director of DRI "have compar-

able responsibilities and duties and that his relationship

to the Board of Regents be the same as the Presidents of

UNR and UNLV".



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board of Regents

approve the Coordinating Council recommendation and imple-

ment it by adoption of the amendments to the Board of Re-

gents By-Laws as proposed in Ref. J (filed with permanent

minutes).



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

without dissent that the proposed amendment to the By-Laws

be approved on the first reading and that final adoption

occur at the March meeting.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the Coordinating Council

had also recommended that, except for the points noted

above, the status quo of DRI be maintained "until such

time as further study of the role and relationship of the

DRI in the total University System has been completed.

Such a study shall be made with no preconceived notions

as to the role and relationships of the units involved."

The Coordinating Council requested that such a study be

undertaken by a faculty committee of nine members of "a

System-wide nature", involving three representatives "sel-

ected or appointed" by each of the UNR, UNLV and DRI Facul-

ty Senates. Mr. Humphrey stated that he assumed that the

committee will file its report with the Chancellor and,

through the Chancellor, with the Board of Regents.



21. University Revenue Bond Issues



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed as follows:



"Burrows, Smith & Co. continues to advise the University

that its revenue bond issues cannot be sold at 7% interest.

The firm has advised the State that in order to sell State

General Obligation bonds, the maturity will have to be 10

years. The State Planning Board has concluded that when

the cost of inflation in construction costs is compared to

the increased cost in financing, it would be preferable to

proceed with construction as soon as possible.



"The State Planning Board (serving ex-officio as the State

Building Authority) is proceeding to have the constitution-

ality of State Building Authority revenue bonds tested in

court. In order to have a valid test case, they have pro-

ceeded on the assumption that they would issue bonds for

the Physical Science Project, Phase II, UNR, and the two

Education buildings. Resolution of this case by the State

Supreme Court is expected in May, 1970. If this approach

is found constitutional, the ethics of the situation still

require that the Legislature approve the issuance of these

bonds by the Building Authority rather than by the Board of

Regents. Burrows, Smith & Co. has advised that bonds of

the State Building Authority could be expected to sell at

a lower interest rate than University Revenue Bonds."



Chancellor Humphrey said that, in his opinion, these mat-

ters justify consideration by the Legislature in that only

the Legislature can deal with all ramifications of these

problems and further improvisation would be imprudent. He

recommended that the Board take the following action:



(1) Respectfully request the Governor to call a Special

Session of the Legislature for the review of bond

problems, including the possible issuance of bonds

by the State Building Authority for the Physical

Science Project, Phase II, UNR; Education Building,

UNR; Performing Arts Project, UNLV; and Education

Building, UNLV; if that course of action is found

constitutional; and



(2) Agree to wait for the determination of the constitu-

tionality of the State Building Authority before plac-

ing the referenced project bonds on the market.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, that the

Chancellor's recommendations be approved, was defeated by

the following roll call vote:



Mr. Bell Abstained

Mr. Bilbray Yes

Mr. Grant Yes

Mr. Jacobsen No

Mr. Ronzone Yes

Dr. White Yes



22. Professional Salary Schedule for 1970-71



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that the approved salary goal

for 1969-70 was to achieve an average salary rank for incum-

bent faculty in the System which would equal the 4th place

public University in the 11 western states. The annual

salary survey compiled by the Board of Regents of the Uni-

versity of Arizona system is considered the authoritative

document. The 1969-70 results for academic faculty on a

10-month basis were as follows:



Professor

(1) 1969-70 All UNS (a) $17,211

(2) 1979-70 UNS Average Salary Mo. Academic only $17,118

(3) 4th Place West $16,911

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 ($) +207

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 (%) +1.2



Associate Professor

(1) 1969-70 All UNS (a) $13,076

(2) 1979-70 UNS Average Salary Mo. Academic only $13,172

(3) 4th Place West $13,318

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 ($) -146

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 (%) -1.1



Assistant Professor

(1) 1969-70 All UNS (a) $10,661

(2) 1979-70 UNS Average Salary Mo. Academic only $10,845

(3) 4th Place West $10,958

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 ($) -113

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 (%) -1.0



Instructor

(1) 1969-70 All UNS (a) $ 8,577

(2) 1979-70 UNS Average Salary Mo. Academic only $ 9,045

(3) 4th Place West $ 8,424

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 ($) +621

Difference in Lines 2 to 3 (%) +7.4



(a) Includes Instruction and Departmental Research, General

Expense, Physical Plant, Library, and Audio-Visual, but

excludes Deans.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the UNLV and UNR average sal-

aries by rank vary, of course, from the System average, due

to a variety of factors, including length of service. 1969-

70 average salaries are:



UNLV UNR SYSTEM



Professor $15,990 $17,665 $17,211

Associate Professor 13,031 13,095 13,073

Assistant Professor 10,849 10,549 10,661

Instructor 8,637 8,535 8,577



Chancellor Humphrey continued by noting that the UNR and

UNLV Faculty Senates had both considered proposals for the

1970-71 salary schedule. The DRI Faculty Senate did not

do this since DRI salaries are not rank related. The pro-

posals presented were different and the matter was referred

to the Coordinating Council. The Council voted to recommend

"that the present policy of achieving an average System-wide

salary for each rank equal to the 4th place among western

public Universities, assuming an increase of 6% per year

over the 1969-70 average, be approved."



Mr. Humphrey stated that it is assumed that the 4th place

public University average salary by rank will increase 6%

in 1970-71 over 1969-70 and will result in a System salary

movement of average salaries as follows:

Chancellor Humphrey recommended that in order to achieve the

1970-71 goal, the lowest step in each rank be discontinued

and one additional step added at the top of each rank, re-

sulting in the following salary pattern:



Instructor Asst Prof Assoc Prof Professor

or Rank I or Rank II or Rank III or Rank IV

10 mo 12 mo 10 mo 12 mo 10 mo 12 mo 10 mo 12 mo



13 15,925 19,110

Increment Increment Increment Increment

$325 $390 $375 $450 $425 $510 $475 $570



Chancellor Humphrey further recommended that each University

be given authorization to move toward the stated salary goal

by movement of faculty in the manner most appropriate to

that University, subject to the usual approval of individual

salaries by the Board of Regents at the March meeting. He

pointed out that the cost of such adjustments would be

$216,100 (including Deans) at UNLV and $376,244 (including

Deans) at UNR and is within the financial ability of both

institutions if the 1970-71 Work Program is adopted as

proposed.



Mr. Jacobsen asked if it was the President's judgment that

salaries for existing faculty should be increased rather

than having new positions.



President Miller expressed agreement with the Chancellor's

recommendation. President Zorn said he wished to reserve

the right to make decisions on salaries after other budg-

etary problems become more clearly defined.



Mr. Humphrey pointed out that by adopting the recommendation

he had submitted, the Board of Regents would be assigning

the priorities.



Dr. Zorn noted that although the matter had been discussed

in the Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet and by the Coordinating

Council and a compromise had been reached, he had reserva-

tions because there was just not enough money in the budget.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Regents make the

money available to implement the salary plan for each Uni-

versity, adding that if President Zorn did not choose to

recommend salaries which would raise the average salary as

recommended, he presumably would also be prepared to defend

his recommendation. If Dr. Zorn should choose to add posi-

tions instead of using the money to increase salaries, he

could explain his logic to the Board at that time. Chancel-

lor Humphrey said that by taking this action, the Board

would make it possible for each University to reach the

salary goal if they chose to do so.



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

without dissent that the Chancellor's recommendations con-

cerning the professional salary schedule for 1970-71 be

approved.



23. 1970-71 Work Program (Tentative)



Chancellor Humphrey presented the tentative Work Program for

1970-71 with the following letter of transmittal:



I hereby submit to you the Tentative 1970-71 Work Pro-

gram for General University Operation. This proposal

calls for the expenditure of $21,370,621 which is

$1,673,785 or 8.5% more than the 1969-70 Work Program.



This Work Program is tentative and will be revised

next Spring. It must be tentative at this time for

several reasons. The funds needed to achieve the

University System Professional personnel salary goal

have been distributed as follows:



(1) Sufficient money to give each authorized posi-

tion a one step increase has been budgeted to

Departments.



(2) Additional money sufficient to achieve the goal

has been budgeted in a special reserve account

to be distributed in accordance with the salary

schedule adopted by the Board of Regents at the

February 13-14, 1970, meeting.



The authorized classified and technical positions have

been extended at 105% of 1969-70 Work Program figures.

This will be revised based upon actual salaries in the

final Work Program. The new instructional positions at

the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, have, in this doc-

ument, been budgeted as a line item, to be distributed

to Colleges in the final Work Program.



There is a detailed listing of new money allocated to

UNLV and UNR. In other appropriations Legislative in-

tent has been followed closely and new money has been

used for Professional, Technical and Classified salary

adjustments and the remainder budgeted to operating.



It is desirable that this tentative Work Program be ap-

proved in order that salaries might be set, and recruit-

ing for new positions and other necessary planning might

proceed.



I recommend that in adopting this tentative Work Pro-

gram the Board of Regents direct that all salary savings

accruing after the authorized positions have been filled

shall revert to the appropriate Contingency Reserve.



I also recommend that the Elko Community College Work

Program be subject to revision after Dr. Charles

Donnelly has had an opportunity to review it; however,

President Lynch must be authorized to proceed accord-

ing to the tentative Work Program.



/s/ Neil D. Humphrey

Chancellor



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

without dissent that the proposed 1970-71 Work Program be

approved as submitted including the recommendations contain-

ed in the letter of transmittal.



24. Architectural Competition for UNR and UNLV Physical Educa-

tion Complexes



Chancellor Humphrey noted that one member of each panel of

judges of this architectural competition is to be selected

by the University. He reported that President Zorn had

recommended that Vice President Baepler be designated for

UNLV and President Miller had recommended that Dr. Robert

Laughter be designed for UNR.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed the above recommendations.



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

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



25. Planning for 1971-73 Budget



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in January the Board re-

viewed and approved the planning and basic concepts to be

used in the preparation of the 1971-73 Biennial Budget. It

was agreed, however, that the adjustment factors for student

credit would be subject to further discussion at this meet-

ing. The factors recommended are:



Factor



Two Year or Community College Programs 2

Lower Division (100-200 Level Courses) 1

Upper Division (300-400 Level Courses) 3

Graduate (500-900 Level Courses) 6

Graduate (999, Ph. D. Level Courses) 7



Chancellor Humphrey noted that with the exception of the

new factor for Ph. D. level courses, the adjustment fac-

tors are as utilized in the 1969-71 budget and the Ten

Year Plan.



Mr. Humphrey said he believed the adjusted student-credit

concept is still valid. However, he noted, distribution

of resources could be made on the basis of a student-faculty

ratio. He presented a comparison of the two methods (filed

with permanent minutes).



Mr. Bilbray moved that the student-faculty ratio be used for

the 1971-73 Biennial Budget Request. Motion was not second-

ed.



President Miller said he believed the adjusted student-

credit method was more refined and assured parity between

the Campuses.



President Zorn said he did not believe there was a major

difference between the two methods although he was more

familiar with the student-faculty ratio method. He sug-

gested that there were more advantages to the student-

faculty ratio for long range planning.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Grant, that the ASC

method be continued for the 1971-73 budget request, failed

with Mr. Bilbray and Dr. White opposing.



Dr. Baepler stated that both systems bring both Campuses to

the same point; the advantage of going to the student-facul-

ty ratio method is in the designing of curriculum. In addi-

tion, he said that it is easier to compute the student-fac-

ulty ratio and the Legislature understands it better.



Chancellor Humphrey agreed, noting that with the adjusted

student-credit method there is sometimes a tendency to

change lower division to upper division courses to obtain

most adjusted student credits.



Mr. Bilbray moved that the student-faculty ratio method be

used for distribution of funds. Motion seconded by Dr.

White.



Dr. Peltier pointed out that the adjusted student-credit

concept allows for a difference between upper and lower di-

vision instruction. Chancellor Humphrey agreed, but noted

there would be adjustment factors in the student-faculty

ratio method also. The difference in cost of instruction

at different levels must be recognized when allocating

money.



President Miller spoke in support of the adjusted student-

credit method because, he said, it does reflect the nature

of the work offered at each University. With the Community

College Division developing, it will be an equitable way of

dealing with that unit also.



Mr. Humphrey pointed out that distribution of funds would

be the same under either method.



Mr. Bibray stated that the adjusted student-credit method

had been widely critized in the south and requested action

on his motion that the student-faculty ratio be used.



Motion failed.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that the adjusted student-credit method

continue to be used. Motion was seconded by Mr. Grant and

failed with the following roll call vote:



Mr. Bell Yes

Mr. Bilbray No

Mr. Grant Yes

Mr. Jacobsen Yes

Mr. Ronzone Yes

Dr. White No



Chancellor Humphrey stated that his Office was prepared to

proceed with either method. He repeated his earlier state-

ment that the allocation of funds will be basically the

same using either method, but pointed out that affirmative

action must be taken on one concept or the other to permit

the budget preparation to proceed.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with

Mr. Jacobsen opposing, that the student-faculty ratio be

used for the 1971-73 budget request.



Upon motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, the follow-

ing supplemental items were approved for addition to the agenda.



26. Transfer of Funds



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

transfer of funds:



#197 $4000 from Contingency Reserve, Elko Community Col-

lege, to Administration. The original 1969-70 Work

Program was based upon the premise of a $100,000 State

Appropriation with the possibility of an additional

$50,000 if enrollment equaled or exceeded 150 FTE

students. The Fall 1969 enrollment exceeded 150 FTE

students; hence, the $50,000 is now available. This

transfer will be used in part to defray the addition-

al costs generated by the increased student body.

Much of the original Work Program was used to pay

printing bills for catalogs, registration forms, etc.,

not leaving enough operating funds to pay phone bills,

postage and other operating expenses. This transfer

is, therefore, necessary to provide adequate operating

funds for the remainder of fiscal 1970.



#198 $4000 from Contingency Reserve, Elko County College,

to Instruction. With the additional $50,000 State

Appropriation the College can purchase needed instruc-

tional equipment that could not be purchased from the

allocation in the original Work Program. This trans-

fer will also be used in part to help defray the addi-

tional costs generated by the increased student body.



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

without dissent that the transfers be approved as submitted.



27. Report of Investment Advisory Committee Meeting of January

9, 1970



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the Committee's

action as reflected in the following minutes:

Mr. Bell requested approval of the Committee's actions as

reflected in the following minutes:



Committee of the Whole

Meeting #6



The Committee of the Whole met on Friday, February 13,

1970, with Regent Bell presiding. Also present were
