2. Chairman's Report



Chairman Gallagher informed the Board that Sunbelt Board-

casting, Channel 4 in Reno and Channel 3 in Las Vegas, has

been developing television spots entitled "Salute to Higher

Education" which will feature outstanding faculty. Chair-

man Gallagher introduced Ms. Janet Rogers of Sunbelt Broad-

casting, who reported that Sunbelt Broadcasting has been

working closely with Chairman Gallagher, Chancellor Dawson,

Public Information Director Pamela Galloway, and the Public

Information Officers at each of the Campuses. The first

television spot was aired on January 31 during the 5:00 -

6:00 P.M. news broadcast. It serves as a news story and

a promotional spot for UNS. Ms. Rogers presented the first

four outstanding faculty who were filmed.



Chairman Gallagher expressed her appreciation and requested

Ms. Rogers to extend to her staff the Board's appreciation.

It was noted that these outstanding faculty are chosen from

the presentations which are given at each Board of Regents'

meeting on outstanding faculty.



Mr. Klaich, once again, questioned the status of the sug-

gested monetary reward to be given for outstanding students

and faculty. Vice Chancellor Fox reported that the Council

of Presidents endorses this type of reward and that he will

be working with the Academic Affairs Council in developing

guidelines.



Chairman Gallagher reported that the task force which has

developed from the science and technology conference held

last August has developed recommendations. These recom-

mendations were released in printed form in January. The

Nevada Industrial Science Engineering and Technology (NISET)

Task Force held meetings on interactive television to dis-

cuss the importance of research in a concerted approach.

A video of one of the meetings was displayed to the Board.



Chairman Gallagher reported that interactive television can

serve as an excellent communications tool throughout the

System and that the System Office is researching this pros-

pect for future use throughout the System.



Dr. Hammargren entered the meeting.



3. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Dawson reported that the proposal for EPSCoR II

has been submitted and he is hopeful Nevada will be success-

ful in obtaining the grant.



Chancellor Dawson announced that the Investment Advisory

Committee will meet on February 28, 1991, at 12:00 noon

instead of 9:00 A.M.



Chancellor Dawson informed the Board that the Governor has

declared February as Community College Month. TMCC has

developed a video tape on the Community Colleges in Nevada

which will be aired on Channel 5 at 6:00 P.M., Thursday,

February 21. The video tape was shown to the Board of

Regents; Chairman Gallagher commended TMCC on the excellent

video tape.



4. Legislative Workshop



A. Review of Governor's Recommendation for UNS Biennial

Budget - Vice Chancellor Sparks reviewed the Governor's

Recommendations for the UNS 1991-93 Biennial Budget,

which is filed in the Regents' Office. He stated that

the Governor's Recommendation for 1991-92 for the UNS

Operating Budget is $238,788,552 which is a 18.15% dif-

ference over the 1990-91 Operating Budget and for 1992-

93 is $255,993,788, a 7.21% difference over the 1991-92

Governor's Recommendation. The Governor has recommended

an 18% increase, approximately 10% of which is for

growth; UNS had requested a 27% increase in the base

budget.



Vice Chancellor Sparks reviewed the "Special Appropria-

tions and Authorizations" contained in the document.

The total for equipment, Management Information System,

EPSCoR II State Matching Funds, and Teacher Education

Incentive Grants is $15,837,387. The document also

contains the Governor's recommendation on Capital

Improvement Requests. The minor repairs and improve-

ments consist of $10,000,000. The cumulative total of

the minor repairs and improvements, preplanned projects

from 1989 Legislature, and the 1991-93 recommended proj-

ects is $82,357,317. The Governor has recommended

$5,000,000 from the 1991-93 Estate Tax Funds and a

schedule outlining the recommendations is included in

the document.



B. UNS Budget Appeals - A number of budget items UNS feels

are essential to preserve quality higher education in

the State of Nevada were not included in the Governor's

Recommendations. Vice Chancellor Sparks reviewed the

appeals as approved by UNS Presidents for possible

presentation to the State Legislature.



Vice Chancellor Sparks distributed a handout showing the

Nevada general fund appropriations for the 1989-91 Bi-

ennium and the Governor's Recommendation for the 1991-93

Biennium. He indicated that if the State revenues are

not increased as projected by the Governor, the UNS

budget increase will likely be around 4% rather than

18%.



Mrs. Berkley stated that it was premature to think

about options towards the budget. She felt that we

should continue to strongly relay our needs to the

Legislature. Vice Chancellor Sparks agreed, and said

he felt if we were to change now it would send mixed

signals to the Legislature.



Mr. Klaich suggested that the following read as the

introduction to the "Legislative Appeals" section of

the document:



"The Council of Presidents recommend appealing to

the Legislature for funding of the following activ-

ities which are not included in the Governor's

budget."



He stated that the Board should continue to articulate

need for salary/compensation increases for employees.



C. Discussion of Governor's Proposed State Revenue

Increase - It is understood that the State may require

additional revenue sources in order to fund the Gov-

ernor's budget recommendations for 1991-93. The Board

discussed its role in securing such resources.



Vice Chancellor Sparks explained how the Governor's

proposed Business Activity Tax (BAT Tax) would increase

the revenues for the State. Chairman Gallagher stated

that the Board of Regents has not taken a stand for

any particular tax and has been advised that it is

too early to do so, however, UNS should continue to

reiterate its needs to the Legislature.



Dr. Hammargren felt that a statement could be made in

support of the Governor's recommendation, without

compromising the Regents' position on any other pro-

posed source of revenue. Mrs. Sparks agreed and stated

that the Board may wish to formally state that the

budget must be funded and that UNS would support some

type of new funding in order for this to be achieved.



Mr. Klaich stated that prior to the Governor's State of

the State address it had been indicated throughout the

State that there would be no new taxes. He felt that

UNS should support the Governor and his courageous

efforts to obtain additional funding. The burden has

now been placed on the Legislators. Mrs. Berkley stated

that UNS should support additional taxes in order to

obtain full funding for the UNS budget.



Chairman Gallagher stated that the business people are

now backing away from this tax concept after initially

agreeing with the Governor, and indicated a need to

draw them back to support this tax.



Mrs. Sparks suggested that a resolution be written from

the Board to support the Governor's new tax.



Dr. Hammargren moved for the Board of Regents to support

the Governor's recommendations on the Business Activity

Tax; however, if the Legislature should find the tax

not advisable, then the Legislature should find an al-

ternative solution. Mrs. Berkley seconded. Motion

carried.



President Crowley questioned whether UNS would testify

on the BAT Tax at a legislative hearing. Mr. Klaich

affirmed that UNS would be available if called upon to

testify in favor of the BAT Tax.



Chairman Gallagher requested General Counsel Klasic,

Dr. Hammargren, President Crowley and Vice Chancellor

Sparks to prepare a resolution stating the Board of

Regents' support for the Business Activity Tax as stated

in the above motion. This resolution will then be pre-

sented to the Legislature.



Mr. Klaich presented the following resolution in support

of the Business Activity Tax:



RESOLUTION #91-3



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System is the

fastest growing higher education system in the

United States, and



WHEREAS, upon recommendation of the Board of Regents

the Governor has proposed a budget which fairly

meets the needs of postsecondary education for the

next biennium in the State of Nevada, and



WHEREAS, because of this tremendous growth in the

System, the needs of higher education in Nevada

cannot be adequately funded from current state

revenues, and



WHEREAS, the aforesaid budget proposed by the Gov-

ernor is predicated upon substantial new sources

of revenue, and



WHEREAS, the Governor has proposed the enactment

of a business activity tax as a new source of

revenue to fund the System and State budgets, now

therefore be it



RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents strongly sup-

ports the Governor's recommended budget, including

his recommendation for a Business Activity Tax,

provided however, that if the Legislature should

find the Business Activity Tax not advisable and

declines to enact it, then the Board of Regents

strongly encourages the Legislature to develop

alternative funding sources which would raise a

substantially equivalent amount of revenue neces-

sary to fund the System's recommended budget.



Dr. Hammargren moved approval of the resolution that

supports the Business Activity Tax. Mr. Klaich second-

ed. Motion carried.



The open meeting recessed at 11:45 A.M. to move into committee

meetings. The regular meeting reconvened at 12:10 P.M. Thursday,

February 14, 1991 with all Regents present except Regent Foley.



5. Approved UNS 1991-95 Legislative Planning Report



NRS 396.505 calls for the Board of Regents to prepare a

comprehensive system plan to be submitted to the Legisla-

ture. Such planning reports are published on a biennial

basis as update to "Nevada 2000: Future Directions for

Nevada's Colleges and Universities".



The "University of Nevada System Planning Report: 1991-95"

identifies issues which will be important to the UNS in

the next decade, including the need to provide the neces-

sary resources to maintain access and high quality during

a period of tremendous growth. The report outlines the

mission of the System and Campuses, and presents Campus

academic and budget priorities over the next four years.



An overview of students, degrees awarded, and enrollment

projections provides a profile of the UNS. The first

chapter, "Issues for the Nineties", contains a discussion

of issues such as the impact of growth on our Campuses,

maintaining quality in our academic programs, and provid-

ing access to students.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the UNS Planning Report:

1991-95. Dr. Hammargren seconded. Motion carried.



6. Personnel Session



Upon motion by Mr. Klaich, seconded by Dr. Eardley, the

Board moved to a closed personnel session for the purpose

of discussing the character, alleged misconduct, profes-

sional competence or physical or mental health of a person

in accordance with NRS 241.030.



The Personnel Session was continued on Friday, February 15,

1991.



The open meeting reconvened at 2:20 P.M. Thursday, February 14,

1991, with all Regents present except Regents Berkley and Foley.



The open meeting recessed at 2:24 P.M. to move into committee

meetings. The regular meeting reconvened at 8:14 A.M. Friday,

February 15, 1991 with all Regents present except Regent Foley.



Chancellor Dawson introduced Dr. Rolfe Kerr, Commissioner of

Higher Education, Utah Higher Education System.



7. Regents' Workshop



The Board met in workshop session in the Grand Hall, Richard

Tam Alumni Center, University of Nevada, Las Vegas.



Academic Planning Workshop - In 1986 the Board of Regents

adopted a calendar and time frame for Campus Master Plans,

and established a planning cycle. The calendar called for

all institutions to complete planning documents in 1990.

During the past year, both Campus and System academic plan-

ning activities have been undertaken, and the 7 institutions

have finalized their academic plans.



Academic planning consultants were engaged to review these

plans and provide comments and recommendations. In addi-

tion, the consultants have reviewed the goals for the UNS

and provided recommendations concerning statewide planning

for higher education in Nevada.



The academic planning consultants, Dr. Harold L. Enarson,

President Emeritus of the Ohio State University, and Dr.

Douglas W. Burris, Deputy Chancellor of California Community

Colleges, presented observations and recommendations, and

led a general discussion on academic planning. (Dr. Daniel

Fallon, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts at Texas A & M

University, was unable to attend the meeting.)



Chancellor Dawson thanked the consultants for their advice

on the UNS academic plan. Their expertise will benefit the

entire System.



The consultants' observations were highlighted by the

following objectives and additional statements:



A statewide perspective to guide the development of

the University of Nevada System as a whole -- a per-

spective that will foster the crafting of useful, clear

and constructive role and mission statements for each

constituent unit and for the System.



A strong office of the Chancellor to assist the Regents

in guiding the development of the System in a time of

explosive growth -- a time of fragile opportunity and

one that will never recur.



Decisions about the relative rates of growth of the Com-

munity College sector and the two senior Universities.



Decisions about the extent to which the Community Col-

leges should serve the expressed needs of their constit-

uency.



A persuasive coordinated strategy for developing, main-

taining and improving graduate education and research

at the senior Universities.



An admission standards policy.



Major strengthening of the relationship between the

Desert Research Institute and the senior Universities,

making more effective use of the teaching and research

resources at DRI.



A higher degree of cooperation between the institutions

of the System, exploiting the advantages of interdepend-

ence.



Sharpened academic priorities reflected in academic

planning.



A planning cycle that is linked to the budget cycle,

each reinforcing the other.



Further development of an integrated management data-

base.



Development of an integrated strategic planning process.



Greater appreciation by the public and the political

leadership that the expansion of opportunity and the

enhancement of quality in the University of Nevada

System is not only essential, but will cost a great

deal of money.



A good systemwide planning process normally takes several

years to come together. An integrated management informa-

tion system must be developed. Clear planning measures must

be addressed and coordinated at each stage of the planning

process. Roles and mission statements must be sharpened

and brought into focus. A planning calendar has to be

designed, with cyclical review points for both development

and evaluation of outcomes.



The entire process, built from the ground level up, must

be brought together into one grand vision that inspires

to a bright future for the citizens of Nevada.



The Board of Regents has exercised exemplary leadership in

calling for sound academic planning at a historic time in

Nevada's development. Faculty, staff and students within

the constituent units of the University have responded by

working diligently under difficult conditions to prepare

academic Master Plans as part of this process. It is a

good beginning. The next steps may be more difficult, but

they promise extraordinary benefits for all parties if they

can be sustained.



8. Nominations for 1990 Distinguished Nevadan Awards

Regents to individuals who are present or former residents

14. Information Only: Amendments to Board of Regents' Bylaws



The proposed amendments to the Board of Regents' Bylaws,

as contained in Ref. B, filed in the Regents' Office, were

presented as an information item only, with Board action

scheduled for the April 4-5, 1991 meeting.



The proposed amendments include the addition of the Research

Affairs Committee, a Board of Regents' standing committee.

This Committee shall review procedures and provide oversight

and guidance for the development, review and implementation

within UNS of statewide or inter-institutional research

initiatives, applied research and development, University-

Industry technology transfer and technology-based economic

development and shall recommend policies concerning the same

to the Board.



After discussion the amendment was rewritten as follows and

was considered as the first reading with action scheduled

for the April 4-5, 1991 meeting.



The Research Affairs Committee shall facilitate the

development, review and implementation within the

University of Nevada System of research initiatives

that are statewide or inter-institutional in nature,

including applied research and development, University-

Industry technology transfer and technology-based

economic development, and shall recommend policies

concerning the same to the Board. The committee shall

consist of at least three members of the Board of

Regents. The principal research administrators of the

two Universities and the Desert Research Institute

shall serve the committee in an advisory capacity.

The institutional Presidents and the Chancellor shall

be kept informed of the service provided by the re-

search administrators.



Chairman Gallagher requested that the above language be

distributed throughout the System prior to the April

meeting.



15. Approved Handbook Change, Leave of Absence Without Pay



Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 3, Section 8,

Leave of Absence Without Salary. Chancellor Dawson stated

that this change will allow UNS to pay health benefits,

provided the leave will be of benefit to the UNS.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

leave of absence without pay. Dr. Eardley seconded.



After discussion regarding the permissive language, General

Counsel Klasic corrected the policy in order to provide

consistency throughout the System to read as follows:



1. Leave of absence without salary, for periods up to and

including one calendar year, may be granted by the

President to faculty members who wish to absent them-

selves from their institutional duties to undertake

research work, advanced study, consultation which

benefits the University of Nevada System, teacher ex-

change and governmental service. Approval of the con-

ditions under which the leave is authorized shall be in

writing and a copy given to the applicant. Only fac-

ulty members who are authorized to take a leave of ab-

sence without salary for the above stated reasons and

who are otherwise eligible to participate in the State

of Nevada's group insurance program shall have their

premiums paid by the University of Nevada System as

authorized by NRS 287.044, unless they choose to pay

the premiums themselves.



Mr. Klaich amended the motion to provide for a mandatory

and systemwide policy for leave of absence without pay as

stated in the above language. Dr. Eardley seconded.

Motion carried.



16. Approved Leases, UNR

mittee meeting, held February 14, 1991 was made by Regent

Jill Derby.



(1) Approved the MS Family Nurse Practitioner at UNR.

Ref. AA-1 is filed in the Regents' Office.



This masters program will prepare graduates to perform

primary health care services including the promotion

of health, prevention of disease and early detection

and treatment of disease.



This program will help address a continuing demand for

health care services in rural Nevada, as documented by

AHEC studies. As well, effective in 1992, new Nurse

Practitioners will be required to have masters prepar-

ation of national certification.



The University of Nevada, Reno intends to seek federal

grant support to begin the program. The proposal would

be submitted following the Regents' meeting.



Chancellor Dawson recommended that this program be

approved pending funding.



(2) Approved the School of Social Work at UNR. Ref. AA-2

is filed in the Regents' Office.



This proposal will change the existing Department of

Social Work to the School of Social Work at UNR.



One of the requirements necessary to satisfy accredi-

tation requirements for the new Master of Social Work

program is that a school designation be established.

A Director will administer the program, and no change

in administrative relationships will be made within

the College of Human and Community Sciences. No

additional facilities or resources are required.



(3) Approved the School of Social Work at UNLV. Ref. AA-3

is filed in the Regents' Office.



This proposal will change the existing Department of

Social Work to the School of Social Work at UNLV.



The Master of Social Work degree was initiated at UNLV

in 1989. In seeking accreditation for this program,

the Council on Social Work Education recommends a

school designation for all graduate programs. The

existing BSW and MSW programs will remain in the

College of Liberal Arts, under the direction of the

current Director and program coordinators. No addi-

tional facilities or resources are required.



(4) Approved the MS Sport and Leisure Service Management

at UNLV. Ref. AA-4 is filed in the Regents' Office.



This proposal will change the title of the existing

Master in Education in Administration and Sport

Management to the Master of Science in Sport and

Leisure Service Management.



In response to changes in the administration of Sport

and Leisure Services field, which now require a greater

understanding of management theory and practice, the

program, which was originally offered by the College of

Education has been revised to provide a more direct

relationship with the College of Business and Econom-

ics. No additional facilities, equipment or resources

are needed.



(5) Approved the Proposed Changes in Community College

Certificate and Degree Requirements. This change will

require a change in the Board of Regents' Handbook.

The Community College Presidents have agreed to make

changes in the courses and groups of courses required

for the Certificate, Associate of Arts degree, Associ-

ate of Science degree, Associate of Applied Science

degree, and the Associate of General Studies degree.

Total units for the certificate will remain at 30

credits and total units for an Associate degree at

60 credits. The proposed changes can be found in

Ref. AA-5, filed with the permanent minutes.



The proposed changes clarify units needed to complete

the Certificate or Associate degree. Further, they

bring these degrees in line with requirements of the

accreditation association, the Northwest Association

of Schools and Colleges.

tions of the Academic Affairs Committee. Mrs. Whitley
