Miller.



Chairman Gallagher introduced Governor Miller who presented

the following proclamation to the University of Nevada

System:



A PROCLAMATION BY THE GOVERNOR



WHEREAS, in the two decades since their inception, the Uni-

versity of Nevada System's four Community Colleges have em-

erged as one of the State's leading producers of trained

workers meeting expanding manpower needs; and



WHEREAS, nearly 33,000 of the 61,000 students enrolled in

Nevada's public higher education system this year attend

Clark County, Northern Nevada, Truckee Meadows and Western

Nevada Community Colleges; and



WHEREAS, these four Institutions are dedicated to open,

accessible, affordable education for all persons, without

respect to circumstances, providing Nevadans with educa-

tional opportunities to become capable of all they are

capable of becoming; and



WHEREAS, these flexible, responsive Institutions are forg-

ing alliances with business, industry, State and local

governments, other schools, prisons, military, volunteer

groups and special needs populations to provide a wide

variety of educational services; and



WHEREAS, these services enable thousands of urban and rural

Nevadans - including racial and ethnic minorities, single

parents, displaced homemakers, veterans, and handicapped,

high school dropouts, nonreaders, students for whom English

is a second language, and others - to prepare for transfer

to four-year schools, acquire skills needed for new occu-

pations or to retrain for current professions, fulfill per-

sonal interests, or improve basic English, reading, or math

skills; and



WHEREAS, these varied efforts to reach out to the many so

that they may participate fully strengthens the economy of

the State and the nation while providing individuals with

skills essential to leading satisfying, productive lives;



NOW, THEREFORE, I BOB MILLER, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF

NEVADA, do hereby proclaim the month of February 1990 as



COMMUNITY COLLEGE MONTH



And I urge all citizens to recognize the value and opportu-

nities available to them through the University of Nevada

System's four Community Colleges.

to Governor Miller who presented the National Literacy

Council award sponsored by Family Circle Magazine, "Leaders

of Readers", to Ms. Kizis for her outstanding services to

3. Introductions



Mr. Klaich announced that President Joseph Crowley has

served as UNR President for 12 years and has brought stabil-

ity to the Office of the President and the University of

Nevada System.



Chancellor Dawson introduced newly elected Unit Faculty

Senate Chairman Louis Grandieri who will complete the term

vacated by Mr. Tom Kendall, who has resigned to accept

another position.



General Counsel Klasic announced that Mr. David Hintzman

had been hired as an Assistant General Counsel in the

Southern Division of the General Counsel's Office.



4. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Dawson acknowledged the resignation of Mr. Tom

Kendall, UNSCS Senior Programmer, Unit Senate Chairman,

whose contributions to UNS over an 18-year period are num-

erous, and perhaps are best summarized in the words of a

co-worker, who said:



"Tom Kendall was part of the positive growth and change in

technology. He saw computing progress in UNS from several

employees using punchcards to state-of-the-art computing.

He was a key player in the development of in-house systems

such as payroll, a library system, and student records.

Kendall came from a time when one guy did everything."



Chancellor Dawson thanked Mr. Kendall for his many years

of dedicated service to UNS, and wished him well in his new

career as Computing Director of an international resort

corporation based in Texas.



Chancellor Dawson introduced Mr. Louis Grandieri who has

graciously agreed to serve as Unit Senate Chairman for the

remainder of the term. Mr. Grandieri is the Manager of

UNSCS Telecommunications South. He joined UNSCS in 1982

as an Electronic Systems Analyst and has 22 years' exper-

ience in Electronics, and a bachelor's degree in Electrical

Engineering.



Chancellor Dawson acknowledged Dr. Joseph Warburton, DRI

Executive Director of Atmospheric Sciences Center. He has

resigned after serving as Chairman of the Rad/Tox Safety

Board for nearly two decades. Dr. Warburton devoted much

time and effort to these duties, with little recognition,

no remuneration. On behalf of UNS, Chancellor Dawson

thanked him for his efforts and also thanked Dr. Richard

Simmonds of the UN School of Medicine's Animal Medicine

Laboratory, for agreeing to take over the Chairmanship.



Chancellor Dawson announced that the Association of Gov-

erning Boards (AGB) conference will be held March 18-20,

1990, in San Diego, California.



He announced that Dr. Dale Parnell, President of the Amer-

ican Association of Community and Junior Colleges (AACJC),

will be in Reno for a National Convention of Business Col-

leges and has agreed to conduct a seminar at the System

Administration building in Reno at 1:30 P.M., Thursday,

April 5, 1990. Chancellor Dawson has notified Regents,

Presidents, Faculty Senate Chairs, and asked Community

College Presidents to invite members of their staffs but

to keep numbers minimal as the meeting room is small.



Chancellor Dawson announced the members of the Presidential

Evaluation Procedures Committee:



Regent Jill Derby President Bob Maxson

Regent Lonnie Hammargren President Jim Taranik

Regent Carolyn Sparks President Tony Calabro

Paula Funkhouser, Faculty Deborah Ballard-Reisch,

Senate Faculty Senate

Committee:



Regent Jim Eardley President Paul Meacham

The Board of Regents requested that issues related to ad-

ministrative salary be examined. Chancellor Dawson has

established a Committee and will report progress made dur-

ing the April Board of Regents' meeting.



Chancellor Dawson announced a video entitled "Men of Color"

which is available to the Campuses for recuiting male

candidates.



Chancellor Dawson distributed the 1989 annual summary of

gifts received by each Institution throughout the year, not

including foundations' donations.



5. Approved Regents Bylaws Changes



Approved a change in Board of Regents Bylaws, Title I,

Article VI, Section 4, Special Committees. In accordance

with policy, the first reading of this changed occurred at

the January 1990 meeting.



Special Section 4. Special committees, with specific

Committees ad hoc purposes and fixed terms of one year

or less, may be appointed from time to time

as deemed necessary by the Board. The Chair-

man of the Board shall appoint the members of

a special committee and its Chairman. The

Chairman of the Board may participate as a

member of a special committee, unless it con-

sists of only one member, but may not serve

as its Chairman.



Mr. Foley moved approval of the Board of Regents Bylaws

regarding Special Committees. Mrs. Whitley seconded.

Motion carried.



6. Approved Additions to the UNS Code, Community College

Titles



A. Section 5.10.2



Approved an addition to the UNS Code, Section 5.10.2,

Community College Titles, which would change the desig-

nation of title for Community College instructional

faculty, as contained in Ref. B, filed in the Regents'

Office. This change of title is to be optional for

each Community College Campus. The instructional fac-

ulty will begin their employment in a non-tenured posi-

tion as "Instructor", and upon the award of tenure,

receive the title "Community College Professor".



Chancellor Dawson recommended approval providing it is

clearly understood that the intent of this change is

purely for the title and will not, in the future, be

tied in with salaries or salary levels.



Mr. Rogich moved approval of the addition to the UNS

Code regarding Community College Titles. Dr. Eardley

seconded.



General Counsel Klasic informed the Board that in 1982

the Legislature acted unconstitutionally by enacting

a Law in which the System has to tenure all profession-

als. The Board of Regents agreed to establish a tenure

track and a non-tenure track. General Counsel Klasic

stated that he would research this issue.



Chancellor Dawson explained that if a Community College

faculty is hired with rank then he is automatically

placed on the tenure track, whereas, if a faculty is

hired with a 0 (zero) rank, then he is placed on the

non-tenure track.



President Meacham explained that the options would be

explained to all professionals so as to let them decide

on which track they would like to be placed. It would

be a mutual agreement between the employee and the

Campus as stated in the UNS Code.



President Calabro stated that when WNCC advertises for

a position it states that the position will be either

tenured or non-tenured. Then after the person accepts

employment at WNCC the employee can apply for the tenure

or non-tenure track.



Upon questioning by Dr. Eardley, President Gwaltney

replied that the Universities operate on a tenure

"policy" whereas the Community Colleges operate on a

"law". TMCC offers both options of tenure or non-

tenure track.



Chancellor Dawson stated that the removal of the word

"instructional" will be proposed at the next Board of

Regents meeting.



Mr. Foley stated that there are three different poli-

cies on titles and requested the Chancellor's Office to

report back to the Board on the impact this will cause.



Motion carried.



B. Section 1.1



Approved the definition of the term "laid off" or "lay

off" in the UNS Code be amended and that a new defini-

tion be added to the Code defining "nonreappointment".

Experience during the past several years has shown that

occasionally there has been confusion over the meaning

of these terms. The purpose of the amendments is to

clarify the point.



(k) "Laid off" or "lay off" means the termination of

employment, for financial exigency or curricular

reasons, of a non-tenured faculty member before

the completion of a contract term or of a tenured

faculty member.



(l) "Nonreappointment" means not appointing a non-

tenured faculty member for a subsequent employment

appointment after the completion of the non-tenured

faculty member's current contract term.



Note: The remaining paragraphs of Section 1.1 would be

relettered if proposed paragraph (l) is adopted.



Mr. Eardley moved approval of the change to the UNS

Code regarding the definition of the term "laid off"

or "lay off". Mr. Rogich seconded. Motion carried.



7. Personnel Session



Upon motion by Mr. Klaich, seconded by Mrs. Sparks, the

Board moved to a closed personnel session for the purpose

of discussing the character, alleged misconduct, profession-

al competence or physical or mental health of a person in

accordance with NRS 241.030.



Upon motion by Dr. Hammargren, seconded by Mrs. Whitley,

the Board moved to open session. Motion carried.



The open meeting reconvened at 2:30 P.M. Thursday, February 22,

1990, with all Regents present.



8. Approved Resolution for Loan, DRI



Approved a resolution authorizing a $2,000,000 bank loan

to DRI from Security Pacific Bank of Nevada (SPBN) to fi-

nance construction of the Great Basin Environmental Research

Laboratory. This loan is to be amortized over a 20 year

period. The Board of Regents approved the project in March

1988. The design of the Great Basin Environmental Research

Laboratory is now complete. Approval of this loan will

allow DRI to proceed with construction of this facility.



RESOLUTION #90-1



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System (the "University")

anticipates issuing less than $10,000,000 in obligations the

interest on which is exempt from Federal income taxation

during calendar year 1990; and



WHEREAS, the University intends on borrowing $2,000,000 from

Security Pacific Bank Nevada, National Association (the

"Bank") pursuant to a letter from the Bank dated January 22,

1990 (the "Proposal") for the purpose of financing certain

improvements for the Desert Research Institute, such borrow-

ing to be evidenced by a note signed by the appropriate

Officials at the University (the "Note"); and



WHEREAS, the University will pay a more favorable interest

rate on the Note if the University designates the Note as

a "Qualified Tax-Exempt Obligation" under Section 265(b)(3)

of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF REGENTS OF

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA:



Section 1. Acceptance of the proposal is hereby ratified,

approved and confirmed and the Regents hereby affirm the

designation of the Note as a qualified tax-exempt obliga-

tion pursuant to Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue

Code of 1986, as amended.



Section 2. The Officers of the University are hereby

authorized to take all action necessary to effectuate the

provision of this resolution, including, without limitation,

execution and delivery of the Note and such certificates as

may be necessary to evidence the validity and enforceabil-

ity of the Note, the exemption of interest thereon from

Federal income taxation and the qualification of the Note

under Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of

1986, as amended.



Section 3. This resolution shall be effective on its

passage and approval.



General Counsel Klasic recommended approval subject to re-

view of loan documents.



President Taranik distributed a handout which includes addi-

tional information on the Great Basin Environmental Research

Lab. He stated there is national concern over global cli-

mate change and environmental degradation, and felt UNS

should move aggressively into this research opportunity.

This facility will alleviate the research space crises in

Northern Nevada.



Chairman Gallagher stated that she is a Director of Security

Pacific Bank of Nevada and will not partake in any discus-

sion or vote on this subject.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the resolution regarding the

DRI Great Basin Environmental Research Laboratory. Mr.

Rogich seconded. Motion carried.



Vice President for Finance and Administration Dale Schulke

stated that Paul Howarth and Associates solicited loan

proposals for this venture and received three proposals.

He stated that a possible reason for so few proposals is

the uneasiness with the indirect recovery funds that will

be a source of repaying the loan.



Chancellor Dawson stated that banks are familiar with

granting loans to the Community Colleges and Universities

because the loans are based on student fees. Banks are

reluctant and not familiar with the indirect cost recovery

that will be used to repay the DRI loan.



Mr. Klaich congratulated President Taranik and his staff for

the imaginative way to accomplish tasks at DRI and also for

designing the project in such a way that it would be a high-

ly useable facility in the future.



9. Approved Resolution for Loan, UNR



Approved the following resolution. This loan was approved

by the Board at its January 1990 meeting, however, Bond

Counsel has requested this formal language.



RESOLUTION #90-2



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System (the "University")

anticipates issuing less than $10,000,000 in obligations the

interest on which is exempt from Federal income taxation

during calendar year 1990; and



WHEREAS, the University intends on borrowing $586,000 from

Valley Bank of Nevada (the "Bank") pursuant to a letter from

the Bank dated January 19, 1990 (the "Proposal") for the

purpose of financing certain improvements at the Midby-Byron

National Judicial and Continuing Education building, such

borrowing to be evidenced by a note signed by the appropri-

ate Officials at the University (the "Note"); and



WHEREAS, the University will pay a more favorable interest

rate on the Note if the University designates the Note as

a "Qualified Tax-Exempt Obligation" under Section 265(b)(3)

of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF REGENTS OF

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA:



Section 1. Acceptance of the Proposal is hereby ratified,

approved and confirmed and the Regents hereby affirm the

designation of the Note as a qualified tax-exempt obliga-

tion pursuant to Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue

Code of 1986, as amended.



Section 2. The Officers of the University are hereby

authorized to take all action necessary to effectuate the

provision of this resolution, including, without limitation,

ity of the Note, the exemption of interest thereon from

Federal income taxation and the qualification of the Note

under Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of

1986, as amended.



Section 3. This resolution shall be effective on its

passage and approval.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval of the resolution for the purpose

of financing certain improvements at the Midby-Byron Nation-

al Judicial and Continuing Education building at UNR. Dr.

Derby seconded. Motion carried.



10. Report on Nursing Articulation Progress



In October 1988 the Board of Regents directed Campuses to

submit progress reports on efforts to achieve National

League for Nursing accreditation, as well as implementation

of the "Phase II, Model B Articulation Plan" which will re-

sult in the direct transfer of Nursing credits within the

University of Nevada System.



The Board also asked that regular reports be submitted.

Follow-up reports were presented by Campus Presidents and/

or Campus representatives.



President Meacham introduced Ms. Frazine Jasper, Chairman

of Department of Nursing, Mr. Kenneth Kozeka, Associate Dean

of Science and Health, and Dr. Herbert Peebles, Vice Presi-

dent of Academic Affairs. President Meacham announced that

these people implemented the changes requested by the Board.

One of these changes is the achievement of an 8-year ac-

creditation of the AD Nursing Program which is an important

component to the future of CCCC's Science and Health Pro-

gram. CCCC was granted a site visit by the NLN accredita-

tion team. While the LPN Program has been accredited for

several years, this is the first time in the State of

Nevada that a Community College has achieved accreditation

for the ADN Program by the National League of Nursing.

CCCC is in an excellent position to work with UNLV's Health

Programs. CCCC has enjoyed a positive and supportive re-

lationship with UNLV and looks forward to a continuation of

this relationship. President Meacham reported that Ms.

Jasper has been working with both UNLV and UNR on the artic-

ulation process. It is not completed at this time, but it

is in progress.



Chairman Gallagher stated that she was most proud of CCCC

in taking the challenge and accomplishing the task in re-

ceiving accreditation. Ms. Jasper has volunteered her ex-

pertise to others in the System in achieving NLN accredi-

tation.



President Maxson applauded CCCC's efforts in achieving NLN

accreditation and stated that UNLV looks forward to work-

ing with CCCC's Science and Health Programs. CCCC has the

most impressive Nursing Programs in the country and this

makes articulation easy for UNLV to accept such talented

students.



Upon questioning by Dr. Eardley on the articulation process,

Dr. Peebles explained that last year an articulation agree-

ment was presented to the Board of Regents for its informa-

tion. If the students are willing to follow that agreement

as it is laid out, they would need to go to UNLV's Admis-

sions Office to fill out the appropriate papers and then

meet with their Advisors. There is an articulated state-

ment that is given to the student which indicates what

classes should be taken at CCCC and what classes will ul-

timately have to be taken at UNLV to achieve a Baccalaureate

degree.



President Crowley introduced Dr. Sydney Krampitz, Dean of

Orvis School of Nursing. Dr. Krampitz distributed two

brochures which have been published for Nursing students.

She reported that she has met with all the Northern Campus-

es and UNR has agreed to build upon the Community College

Programs. Dr. Krampitz stated that she will be discussing

Nursing with Ms. Jasper at CCCC. She stated that in order

for a student to be accepted into the upper division course

work they must have a 2.75 GPA and have completed the lower

division requirements which the Community Colleges provide.

In addition, she reported that there are 8 UNR Master degree

students taking course work in Elko which is provided by UNR

faculty.



Chairman Gallagher announced that Dr. Krampitz has been ap-

pointed to the State Board of Nursing, and commended her

efforts in working with all the Campuses.



President Calabro distributed a report, which is filed in

the Regents' Office. The report states the WNCC's self-

study will be in the Spring of 1991 and the on-site visit

will be in the Fall of 1991. Many accomplishments have

been made regarding articulation and curriculum. WNCC is

pleased with the progress they have made and that the NLN

Accredition process is on schedule. WNCC looks forward

to improving articulation with UNR and UNLV as a result

of NLN Accreditation.



President Gwaltney stated that TMCC is planning to have the

NLN Accreditation team visit scheduled within a year. TMCC

has dropped a few of the courses as recommended by their

consultant. President Gwaltney feels that there will not

be a problem in receiving NLN Accreditation at TMCC.



President Remington stated that NNCC is lagging behind the

other Colleges in receiving NLN Accreditation and he is

hopeful that NNCC will have the accreditation by 1994.

NNCC has enjoyed working with Dr. Krampitz, Dean of Orvis

School of Nursing. The Nursing staff has undergone reor-

ganization of the curriculum and has moved from 80 to 70

credits. 64 credits can be transferred to the Orvis School

of Nursing at UNR. There are still some courses that need

to be defined more clearly and they will continue to work

with UNR on articulation.



11. Approved Dismissal of Professional Employee on Appeal



On September 28, 1989, after a hearing on September 5-6,

1989 before a Special Hearing of Officer and a Special Hear-

ing Committee, Dr. Thomas Harrington, a professional employ-

ee at the University of Nevada, Reno, was notified of UNR

Acting President Mark Dawson's decision to discharge him

from employment for cause under UNS Code Section 6.2.1(j),

6.2.2(p) and 6.2.2(s). Dr. Harrington made a timely appeal

of this decision to the Board of Regents, as provided in

UNS Code Section 6.14.1. At its October 19-20, 1989 meet-

ing, the Board requested additional briefing on the follow-

ing matters:



1. Does the UNS Code provide due process and other

constitutional and statutory protection?



2. Was the procedure of the UNS Code followed in

this matter?



3. The merits of the appeal.



The Board directed that a hearing be scheduled for December

6, 1989. Mr. Michael Melner, attorney for Dr. Harrington,

argued the appeal before the Board. The Regents sought

Counsel from outside the UNS and put the matter off until

this meeting.



Under the UNS Code Section 6.14.2(d), the Board had the

following options:



1. Dismiss the charges;

2. Affirm the charges;

3. Impose a lesser sanction; or

4. Order a new hearing.



Chairman Gallagher reported that Morton Galane, the outside

Counsel, reported to the Board that the UNS Code provided

due process in employee terminations, that the Code's due

process procedures were followed in this matter and that

there was substantial evidence in the record to support the

Hearing Officer's findings and the Hearing Committee's rec-

ommendations.



Chairman Gallagher invited Mr. Melner to speak to the Board

on the matter.



Mr. Melner argued that Mr. Galane did not do an adequate

job in reviewing this matter. Mr. Galane stated, accord-

ing to Mr. Melner, that there was no evidence showing that

the Hearing Officer had a conflict of interest, but Mr.

Melner stated that the reason there was no evidence was be-

cause the Hearing Officer did not disclose her conflict of

interest until after the hearing. Mr. Melner asked that

the Board either ask for additional review of this matter

by another Attorney or send the matter back to Mr. Galane

or hold a new hearing.



Mr. Donald Klasic, the ad hoc Administrative Officer then

spoke. He summarized the procedural steps taken in this

matter, repeated the options open to the Board to resolve

the matter and explained the charges against Dr. Harrington.

Mr. Klasic pointed out that the Hearing Officer found that

UNR proved 3 of the 4 charges brought against Dr. Harrington

and that Mr. Galane found that the evidence in the record

supported 2 of the 4 charges. He requested that the Board

either affirm against Dr. Harrington 3 charges consisting

of unprofessional conduct (UNS Code, Sec. 6.2.1.j), sexual

harassment in violoation of the UNS Code (UNS Code, Sec.

6.2.2.p), and sexual harassment in violation of UNR policy

(UNS Code Sec. 6.2.2.s) or, alternatively, 2 charges con-

sisting of unprofessional conduct (UNS Code, Sec. 6.2.1.j)

and sexual harassment in violation of UNR policy (UNS Code

Sec. 6.2.2.s). Mr. Klasic also pointed out that Mr. Galane

found that the evidence in the record supported the Hearing

Committee's recommendation to terminate Dr. Harrington's

employment at UNR. Mr. Klasic requested that the Board

direct Dr. Harrington's termination from employment.



Under Mr. Klaich's questioning, Mr. Klasic conceded that

there was not direct evidence of academic intimidation as

required by UNS code, Sec. 6.2.2.p. Mr. Klaich stated his

opinion that there were 2 distinct issues: (1) affirm or

dismiss the charges and (2) if necessary, decide the pen-

alty.



After Mr. Melner made a short rebuttal argument, the matter

was thrown open for discussion by the Board.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval to affirm the conviction of 2

charges of unprofessional conduct (UNS Code, Sec. 6.2.1.j)

and secual harassment in violation of UNR policy (UNS Code,

Sec. 6.2.2.s) against Dr. Thomas Harrington. Mr. Klaich

seconded. Motion carried.



Mr. Foley suggested that additional proceedings be held to

determine the penalty to be imposed on Dr. Harrington. He

likened this suggestion to a sentencing proceeding in which

a Judge did not sentence a person until after receipt of a

pre-sentence report from the Probation Department. Mr.

Foley then read a letter from Dr. Richard Siegel, a faculty

member from UNR, suggesting that a psychiatric review of Dr.

Harrington to see if treatment rather than termination would

be advisable.



Mr. Foley moved approval to have a punishment hearing under

rules to be formulated to take into account Dr. Siegel's

letter. Mr. Rogich seconded.



A roll call vote was taken:



Aye - Regents Foley and Rogich

No - Regents Derby, Eardley, Hammargren, Klaich,

Sparks, Whitley and Gallagher



Motion failed.



Mr. Klasic had spoken in opposition to Mr. Foley's sugges-

tion stating that the "pre-sentencing" review was already

held by the Hearing Committee and it recommended termina-

tion. Mr. Melner had spoken in favor of the suggestion,

saying it was fair and appropriate. He stated that the

Hearing Committee sat in the hearing with the Hearing

Officer at the same time.



Dr. Derby moved approval to affirm punishment with termin-

ation for Dr. Thomas Harrington. Dr. Eardley seconded.



A roll call vote was taken:



Aye - Regents Derby, Eardley, Hammargren, Klaich,

Sparks, Rogich, Whitley, Gallagher

No - Regent Foley



Motion carried.



Dr. Hammargren left the meeting at this time.



12. Approved Sale of Property, UNR



Approved the sale of property in Amargosa Valley, Nevada.

In 1972, UNR was given a 160 acre parcel of vacant land in

Amargosa Valley, near Pahrump, Nevada. After considerable

effort in trying to sell the property, UNR has finally re-

ceived an offer of $50,000 with a $10,000 down payment, and

the balance of $40,000 to be amortized over 10 years at 10%

interest. The unpaid balance will be due and payable at

the end of five years. A recent appraisal has set the cur-

rent market value at $51,000.



General Counsel Klasic recommended approval subject to re-

view of legal documents.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the sale of property in

Amargosa Valley. Mr. Rogich seconded. Motion carried.



13. Approved Sale of Land, UNR



Approved the sale of 1.4 acre parcel of land located off

the Pyramid Lake Highway. This property was donated to

UNR by Dr. and Mrs. Frank Stokes in 1981 and has been for

sale since that time. A current appraisal of that property

set the value at $55,000 and an offer in that amount has

been received. The offer expires February 25, 1990. The

conditions of the gift require one-third (1/3) of the pro-

ceeds from the sale to go to the Nevada Area Council for

the Boy Scouts. The remaining two-thirds (2/3) is to es-

tablish the Dr. Frank C. Stokes Scholarship Endowment.



General Counsel Klasic recommended approval subject to

review of the legal documents.



Mr. Rogich moved approval of the sale of land located off

the Pyramid Lake Highway. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion

carried.



14. Approved Easements, UNLV



Approved the following easements:



A. Las Vegas Valley Water District - to provide relocation

of water service to the easterly sidewalk area of

Swenson Street approximatley 175 feet south of Flamingo

Road. This relocation will provide greater safety to

the District's maintenance and operations personnel.

All work and cost of the relocation will be borne by

the Las Vegas Valley Water District.



B. Nevada Power Company - an additional grant of easement

to the property located in the County of Clark, State

of Nevada, in the Southeast Quarter (SE 1/4) of Section

22, Township 21 South, Range 61 East, M. D. M., Nevada.



General Counsel Klasic has reviewed the documents.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval of the easements with Las Vegas

Valley Water District and Nevada Power Company. Dr.

Hammargren seconded. Motion carried.



15. Approved Amendment to CSUN Constitution, UNLV



Approved an amendment to the CSUN Constitution, Article VI,

Section B, Composition, as follows:



B. Composition: The Senate shall consist of 21 represent-

tatives. Each College shall receive at least one Senate

seat and the remaining Senate seats shall be apportioned

according to the percentage of CSUN members enrolled in

each College. Students who have not declared a major

shall be considered as constituting the College of Aca-

demic Advising for representation purposes.



In the event that a new College is created at the Uni-

versity of Nevada, Las Vegas, the Senate shall be ex-

panded by one until the next session of the CSUN Senate.



Mr. Rogich moved approval of the amendment to the CSUN

Constitution at UNLV. Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.



16. Approved Handbook Changes, Scholarships and Graduate

Assistantship Policy



Approved the following Handbook changes:



A. Title 4, Chapter 18, Section 10, Scholarship, General



Handbook changes to the General Scholarship policies as

contained in Ref. G, filed in the Regents' Office.



B. Title 4, Chapter 5, Sections 2.5 and 2.6, Graduate

Assistantship, Appointments



Handbook changes in the Graduate Assistantship policy

on appointments to allow for 12-month Graduate Assistant

contracts as follows:



Section 2. Appointment



5. Normally, appointments shall be made either for the

academic year or for 12 months; however, appoint-

ments may be made for a shorter period to fill va-

cancies created by resignation or by establishment

of temporary positions.



6. A full-time Graduate Assistantship is based upon a

20-hour work week; however, appointments may be

offered for less time with salary and grant-in-aid

determined proportional to the commitment of time.

If the Graduate Assistantship is for a 12-month

period, the additional conditions of work for the

Summer months and the semester break must be stip-

ulated in the contract.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the Handbook changes regard-

ing Scholarships and Graduate Assistantship Policy. Dr.

Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



17. Approved Good Neighbor Policy of Children of Alumni



Approved the policy in which children of UNLV and UNR alumni

who reside outside the State will be allowed to attend their

respective University under the Good Neighbor Policy. This

would apply only to alumni who have received the Baccalaure-

ate degree from UNLV or UNR.



Mr. Foley moved approval of the Good Neighbor Policy of

Children of Alumni at UNR and UNLV. Mrs. Whitley seconded.

Motion carried.



President Crowley stated that the two Universities have

estimated a very low financial impact and that both UNR and

UNLV will be tracking the children of alumni and the impact

over the next two years.



ASUN President Glen Krutz stated that the policy is accept-

able, but is concerned about the financial impact it will

have on student fees. He would not want to see a fee in-

crease in the future to justify this policy.



President Maxson stated that UNLV is expecting less than a

dozen children of alumni to return to UNLV. It is President

Maxson's opinion that UNS will receive many times over the

cost in good will, good faith, etc. He is also mindful that

the Legislature may not look on his policy favorably. UNLV

also will monitor this policy very closely.



Mrs. Sparks stated that the alumni do want their children to

receive their education in Nevada. The alumni are aware

that this policy may be temporary.



President Maxson replied to a question asked by Dr. Derby by

stating that private Universities offer this type of policy

to its alumni, but it is rare for a public University to

offer this policy.



President Maxson stated that this policy will only be offer-

ed to children of alumni who have received a baccalaureate

degree. The two Universities want to track this policy for

two years, and if successful, the Universities may wish to

make some modifications. Vice Chancellor Fox informed the

Board of Regents that 397 students throughout UNS have taken

advantage of the Good Neighbor Policy, with 353 from Cali-

fornia residents, 13 from Utah and 31 from Arizona. There

are still many questions regarding this policy and Vice

Chancellor Fox recommended that the Universities develop

guidelines for utilizing the alumni policy. Chairman

Gallagher directed Vice Chancellor Fox to develop the guide-

lines for the alumni policy.



It was clarified that the children of alumni would return to

the respective Universities, i. e., if a parent graduated

from UNR then the children will attend UNR, with the same

being true for UNLV.

gents and those in attendance on a tour of two academic

computing facilities, the Writing Lab located in Ross Hall,

and the facilities in Getchell Library. These facilities

were made possible through academic computing appropriations

received from the 1989 Nevada State Legislature.



The open meeting recessed and reconvened at 8:00 A.M. Friday,

February 23, 1990 with all Regents present except Mr. Klaich

and Dr. Hammargren.



21. Regents' Workshop



The Board met in a workshop session in the Student Senate

Chambers, Jot Travis Student Union, UNR. Communications

throughout UNS was the topic of the workshop. The follow-

ing are the highlights of the discussion between Regents,

Presidents, Faculty Senate Chairmen, and the Chancellor's

staff:



Problems:



Timeliness -- there usually isn't enough time to relay

information throughout the Campus.



Assumptions -- there is a breakdown in communications

because assumptions and rumors may distort the real

issue.



Difficult to get ahead of the "grapevine".



Different levels in academic circles -- it is difficult

to build communications between the different entities.



Faculty Senate Chairmen and Student Government Officers

serve one-year terms; this does not give them time to

learn the system.



In speaking, we assume that people have the same per-

spectives; must remember that we are addressing many

different audiences.



NNCC has problem with travel time.



Suggestions:



Meet with different Campus entities and indulge them

in discussions.



Set priorities and make them known throughout the

Campus.



Be seen throughout the Campus.



Force yourself to meet people.



The Faculty Senates are the nerve center to the Campus-

es; most communicate openly with Faculty Senate Chair-

men.



"Trust" is communication's partner -- must learn to

trust.



Invite private sector to the Campus.



Establish specific facilities for faculty and staff

where they can meet informally.



Find out where rumors begin and put a halt to the rumor.



Hold open faculty forums with Administration.



Regents are accessible to the public and faculty, but

should direct administration issues back to the Campus

Presidents.



Let Presidents know when Regents are on the Campus.



Hold orientation workshops with Regents, Faculty Senate

Chairmen and Student Government Officers.



Two-year terms for Faculty Senate Chairmen with more

release time.



Hold more social events at Board of Regents' meetings.



Become more sensitive to difference audiences.



When speaking to Press: be accessible, collect thoughts

and don't let them put words in your mouth, end rumors,

don't react with anger, if not sure of the answer then

research the answer and return call. Once you've made

your point then you can say "no further comment".



Regents to be invited to Campuses more often.



Telecommunications throughout the System.



The workshop meeting recessed at 9:20 A.M. and the Board recon-

vened in open session at 9:30 A.M. Friday, February 23, 1990,

with all Regents present except Dr. Hammargren and Mr. Klaich.



22. Information Only: Community College Administrative

Structures



As a result of the recent Community College Study, the

Community College Presidents prepared flow charts of their

administrative structures and presented them to the Board.



President Meacham referred to Ref. C-1, filed in Regents'

Office. He stated that there is faculty input with the

budget process and administrative evaluations, which had

been a main concern that surfaced from the recent Community

College Study.



President Remington referred to Ref. C-2, filed in the

Regents' Office. He stated that the Administrative Council

is not included in the reference material. The Council con-

sists of representatives from the Faculty Senate, Classified

Employees Council, and Student Government. He noted that

student involvement has been poor in the past, but NNCC is

working on strengthening their involvement. President

Remington commended NNCC Faculty Senate Chairman Mike Mc

Farlane for his efforts on the Salary Committee which is

looking at the salary inequities and working with the Budget

Committee on the Campus.



President Gwaltney referred to Ref. C-3, filed in the Re-

gents' Office. He stated that the structure had been re-

developed three years ago and has worked very well. TMCC

Faculty Senate Chairman Paula Funkhouser informed the Board

that the Budget Committee was formed in 1988 and the Eval-

uation of Administrators Committee was formed last Spring.



President Calabro referred to Ref. C-4, filed in Regents'

Office. He informed the Board that the President's Council

consisted of the President, Deans, Faculty Senate Chairman,

Information Officer and Administrative Assistant to the

President, who represents the classified employees. The

Dean's Council meets whenever there is a personnel matter

to attend to. It does not meet on a regular basis. WNCC

does have a Budget Committee and an Administration Evalua-

tion Committee. WNCC Faculty Senate Chairman Mike Hardie

stated that he was appreciative for being included in the

Chancellor's Council of Presidents' meetings. He felt

that this process was helpful for the Faculty Senate Chair-

men. The evaluation of the Administrators caused a major

restructuring, but has brought valuable feedback to the

Administrators. He stated that WNCC is considering making

the Budget Committee a standing committee.



Mr. Klaich entered the meeting.



President Crowley took the opportunity to introduce Ms. Suzanne

Mc Govern, newly hired Public Information Officer at UNR.



23. Nominations for 1990 Distinguished Nevadan Awards, UNR and

UNLV



Distinguished Nevadan Awards are bestowed by the Board of

Regents to individuals who are present or former residents

of the State for "significant achievements contributing to

the cultural, economic, scientific, or social advancement

of Nevada and its people, or for exceptional service to the

State or nation that has influenced constructively the well-

being of mankind."



Dr. Eardley moved, and Mr. Klaich seconded, that the follow-

ing persons be honored as Distinguished Nevadans and that

the awards be presented at Commencement at UNR in May, 1990:



Frank J. Fahrenkoph, Jr.

Preston Q. Hale

Thomas K. Hood, M. D.

Phyllis Baker Kaiser



Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich moved, Dr. Eardley seconded, that the following

persons be honored as Distinguished Nevadans and that the

awards be presented at Commencement at UNLV in May, 1990:



Reverend John Joseph Mc Veigh

Claudine Williams



Motion carried.



24. Nominations for 1990 Honorary Associate Degrees



Mr. Foley moved, Dr. Derby seconded, that the following

persons be honored with an Honorary Associate Degree and

that the awards be presented at Commencement at CCCC in

May, 1990:



Charlotte Hill

William W. Southard, Jr.



Motion carried.



Dr. Derby moved, Mr. Foley seconded, that the following

persons be honored with an Honorary Associate Degree and

that the award be presented at Commencement at NNCC in

May, 1990:



Warren Scott

Al Warmouth



Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich moved, Dr. Derby seconded, that the following

persons be honored with an Honorary Associate Degree and

that the award be presented at Commencement at TMCC in

May, 1990:



Krestine Corbin

Hans Wolfe



Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich moved, Dr. Derby seconded, that the following

person be honored with an Honorary Associate Degree and

that the award be presented at Commencement at WNCC in

May, 1990:



Pete Rice



Motion carried.



25. Nominations for 1990 Honorary Degrees



Mrs. Whitley moved, Mr. Rogich seconded, that the following

persons be honored with an Honorary Degree and that the

awards be presented at Commencement at UNR in May, 1990:



Nancy Cashell

Robert C. Maxson



Motion carried.



Mr. Rogich moved, Dr. Derby seconded, that the following

person be honored with an Honorary Degree and that the

award be presented at Commencement at UNLV in May, 1990:



Marvin Sedway



Motion carried.



26. Approved Handbook Change, Collective Bargaining Regulations



Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 4, Collective

Bargaining Regulations as contained in Ref. D, filed with

the permanent minutes.



The General Counsel had prepared additional language changes

in these regulations as directed by the Board of Regents at

its January 1990 meeting and recommended approval.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

Collective Bargaining Regulations. Mr. Rogich seconded.

Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich stated for the record that he was in favor of the

proposed Collective Bargaining Regulations. He indicated

that after General Counsel Klasic drafted the changes, the

draft was circulated to members of the Committee for their

input and consideration. The Committee did not find any

substantial changes to recommend to the Board of Regents.

Mr. Klaich felt that this speaks very highly of General

Counsel Klasic and all the members of the Committee who

worked with him on this document. Mr. Klaich did reflect on

Section 13.2 which indicates that the provisions of the UNS

Code and Bylaws, etc., that are not otherwise affected by a

collective bargaining contract remain in full force and

effective, unless and until modified by appropriate System

authority with the final phrase being, "...which it may do

so at any time". There was a question raised on this

phraseology and Mr. Klaich responded that it means "...

which it may do so at any time in accordance with the

provisions of the UNS Code and the Bylaws with respect to

amendment or modification", which Mr. Klaich thought was

implicit in the language. The person who raised the

question felt that it was in all likelihood correct and it

was implicit in the language, but wished Mr. Klaich to

clarify the language for the record. Mr. Klaich stated

that it was an appropriate comment to make, but did not

suggest a language change.



Mr. Klaich thanked General Counsel Klasic for the drafting

of the document.



27. Approved the 1990 Athletics Symposium



In August 1989 the Regents and the Universities sponsored a

successful Athletics Symposium. The $20,000 cost was borne

by Regents ($10,000) and UNLV and UNR ($5,000 each). Chan-

cellor Dawson has recommended that a second symposium be

held in 1990 and that it be financed in the same manner.



Dr. Eardley stated that he was in attendance of the 1989

symposium and felt that it was very informative. He sug-

gested that more athletic student involvement be implemented

at the next symposium.



President Maxson felt that the symposium is a very good idea

and thought it should be held again. There have been some

procedural changes made based on the recommendations which

were discussed at last year's symposium. If more athletic

student involvement is requested, he stated that he would

have to request approval from the NCAA on paying for ath-

letic student travel expenses. An NCAA policy states that

you can only provide benefits that can be provided for all

the athletic students. He suggested a possible vidio moni-

tor be set up during the next symposium between the two

Campuses.



President Crowley stated that it was a very worthwhile

endeavor. Many of the suggestions brought before the sym-

posium last year have been implemented into policy at UNR.

He stated that the impact of the symposium was considerable

and the public relations impact was perhaps even greater.

He made a suggestion of broadening the scope of the audience

at the next symposium.



Chairman Gallagher questioned whether certification had been

implemented at the Universities, and President Crowley re-

sponded that NCAA has circulated the policy on an experi-

mental voluntary accreditation program status. It is now

available to Institutions which wish to take advantage of

the policy. President Crowley stated that he was almost

certain that this policy will become mandatory in the future

as Institutions step forward to volunteer and go through the

process. The intention of the NCAA is to ask Institutions

if they wish to volunteer or to ask conferences if Institu-

tions within these conferences would volunteer. The intent

is to get one or two schools from each conference in this

initial round. UNR and UNLV have both volunteered.



Mr. Rogich moved approval for a second symposium in 1990 and

that it be financed in the same manner as the 1989 Athletic

Symposium. Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.



Dr. Derby stated that the public relations value in sponsor-

ing this symposium is very significant and reflects on the

Board of Regents that they have taken on the initiative to

address some of the difficult issues, that we are paying

attention and making this effort.



Dr. Eardley stated that athletic terminology has changed

over the years and requested information on the present

terminology for the members of the Board.



28. Discussion of Regents' Policies on Athletics



A discussion was held regarding Regents' policies on Athlet-

ics as contained in the Handbook, Chapter 10, Section 17,

Policies Concerning the University Intercollegiate Athlet-

ics, as contained in Ref. E, filed in the Regents' Office.



Mr. Rogich stated that if athletic policies were in place

the Board of Regents and President Maxson would have been

able to make a decisive decision regarding the disciplinary

procedures for the action displayed at one of the recent

UNLV basketball games. He emphasized that there should be

strict accountability of the Athletic Directors at each of

the Universities. A policy should be implemented so there

are no misinterpretations made by the Athletic Directors.



It is Mr. Rogich's opinion that Athletic Directors should

not be employed as Head Coaches while employed as Athletic

Directors. He requested that a policy be developed in this

regard.



Mr. Klaich stated that he did not disagree with Mr. Rogich's

principle regarding Athletic Directors, but added that when-

ever Regents get involved with athletic issues, the Regents

seem to disrupt the Athletic Department. He strongly sug-

gested that the Board of Regents work cautiously when deal-

ing with athletics. The Board of Regents must remember that

they are a policy making Board and must not become involved

with the administration of athletics. The Athletic Depart-

ment must receive fair treatment as well as all the other

Departments on the Campuses.



Dr. Eardley stated that the community feeling is that UNR's

Athletic Director, Chris Ault, has performed well in his

dual roles as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach.

The Board of Regents cautioned President Crowley on his

decision to hire Mr. Ault as Athletic Director, but it is

not the role of the Board to administrate. He felt that the

Board of Regents have watched this dual role very carefully.



Mr. Rogich stated it is the role of the Board of Regents to

help protect the Presidents and in doing so the Board must

implement policies which govern the Institutions. He felt

strongly that a policy statement should be devised for

Athletic Directors not serving as Head Coaches and disci-

plinary procedures for student athletes.



Chairman Gallagher stated that the policies should reflect

support of each of the Presidents, but the Presidents are

accountable for their Institutions.



Mr. Klaich clarified that his previous comments should not

be misconstrued as being against Presidents and the Athletic

Departments. He stated that the Presidents and the Athletic

Departments are doing excellent jobs.



29. Information Only: 1990 Goals for Regents, Presidents and

Faculty Senate Chairmen



At the Fall 1989 workshop, goals were developed by Regents,

Presidents and Faculty Senate Chairmen. Chairman Gallagher

requested the Regents, Presidents and Faculty Senate Chair-

men to review these goals, as contained in Ref. F, filed in

the Regents' Office. These goals will be discussed during

a future Board of Regents' workshop.



30. Information Only: Planting of Trees



President Bush has proclaimed a goal for America of planting

one billion trees a year for environmental purposes. In

keeping with this, Regent Rogich requested that the Board of

Regents consider a goal for the planting of trees at UNS

Institutions.



Vice Chancellor Warren Fox suggested that the Board of Re-

gents contact Secretary of State Frankie Sue Del Papa who

has been instrumental in the planting of trees throughout

the State of Nevada.

33. Budget and Finance Committee



The Budget and Finance Committee, meeting as a committee

of the whole under the Chairmanship of Regent Eardley,

acted as follows:



(1) Approved the following Summer Session Budgets for

UNLV and NNCC:

Mr. Klaich moved approval of the NNCC Summer Session

Budget. Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.



(2) Vice Chancellor Sparks presented the UNS 1988-89 Oper-

ating Budget Actual to Budget Comparison. He reported

that $1,250,000 was reverted back to the State General

Fund from the 1988-89 Operating Budget. The primary

source for this reversion was from indirect cost re-

covery funds. In the future, as approved by the Leg-

islature, all funds collected from indirect cost re-

covery in excess of the current budgeted amounts may

be retained by the Institutions.



Mr. Rogich requested a legal opinion regarding the

Legislature prohibiting the System from transferring

funds. Vice Chancellor Sparks stated that it has been

difficult for UNS to challenge the Legislature on this

issue. Mr. Rogich stated that the Board of Regents

should stand firm and demand that the budget defini-

tions be clearly defined.



President Maxson agreed with Mr. Rogich and stated that

it is very difficult to operate a business without

flexibility. He stated that the Departments are care-

fully audited and felt that it made sense to approach

the Board of Regents when requesting to transfer funds

-- not the Legislature. Nevada is the fastest growing

State in the Nation and funding for higher education is

lagging behind. President Crowley stated that without

flexibility it causes difficulties on the Campuses.

The Campuses do not have contingency reserve funds.

Salary savings are used in some instances. President

Meacham added that the budgets are very tight and time-

liness becomes a problem when there is a need to trans-

fer funds.



Mr. Foley felt that the Board of Regents should have

authority over the transfer of funds at the Institu-

tions. He requested a study be made and that it be

presented to the Legislative Counsel Bureau for deter-

mination on the issue.



Mrs. Gallagher reminded the Board that the Legislature,

at this time, does hold the purse strings and we should

be mindful of this and take our time to carefully think

through this process.



Mr. Rogich stated that he disagreed with the constitu-

tionality of the Legislature in making the decisions

regarding transferring of the funds under the Board of

Regents' jurisdiction and felt the Board should ask

for a legal opinion.



General Counsel Klasic informed the committee that the

Attorney General's Office will not issue an opinion

without first receiving an opinion from the agency's

own attorney.



Mr. Foley requested an agenda item be placed on the

next agenda to discuss this in further detail. Mrs.

Sparks stated that the Board has discussed this issue

and had decided that the Board of Regents are duly

elected with the Presidents accountable to the Board

-- not the Legislature or its committees.



President Maxson stated that when he announced that he

had transferred funds during the last biennium, the

leadership in both the Senate and Assembly were very

supportive of higher education and he was surprised at

the reaction received from them through the Press. He

suggested that a Board member meet with the Senate and

Assembly leadership to resolve this issue.



Mr. Klaich reminded the committee that the Board of

Regents and System brought this issue on themselves.

He recommended proposing that a detailed summary be

provided to the Legislature and Governor's Office

after transfers have been approved by the Board of

Regents.



(3) Approved the Base Budget parameters. Vice Chancellor

Sparks presented the recommended parameters for the

1991-93 UNS Base Budget, as filed in the Regents'

Office.



Mr. Klaich felt that increasing the merit to 3% for all

professionals plus fringe benefits was not a priority

at this time.



Mr. Foley stated that full funding is a myth, in his

opinion. He felt that the budgets do not deal with the

necessities of the individual Campuses and that it was

not right to spread this across the Institutions. He

felt that the formulas were fictitious.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval of the 1991-93 UNS Base

Budget parameters. Mrs. Whitley seconded. Mr. Foley

opposed. Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich noted for the record that he voted for the

parameters, but did not feel that increasing the merit

to 3% for all professionals, plus fringe benefits,

should be included in the parameters. He opposed the

change in the merit pay from 2.5% to 3%.



34. Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee



A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Commit-

tee meeting, held February 22, 1990, were made by Regent

Joseph Foley, Chairman:



(1) Approved the patent portion of the Intellectual Proper-

ty Policy. Chancellor Dawson requested the current

Board of Regents' policy, Title 4, Chapter 12, Patent

Policy be deleted and replaced with Intellectural

Property Policy as contained in Ref. AA-1, filed in

the Regents' Office.



This proposal was discussed at the January meeting of

the Board of Regents, with action delayed pending

further review. The new policy provides more specific

information concerning inventions within UNS.



There was general discussion concerning the proposal.

UNR Faculty Senate Chairman Deborah Ballard-Reisch

stated that she endorses the proposed patent policy,

but suggested further work on a copyright policy which

could be added at a later date.



Mr. Foley stated that he had referred the Intellectual

Property Policy to Attorney Ted Quick, who specializes

in patent and copyright law. It is Mr. Foley's opinion

that UNS should seek private legal opinion before

adopting the proposed policy.



General Counsel Klasic informed the committee that the

proposed policy was derived from University of Texas

and University of Georgia policies. These documents

were used as a basis along with other technical input

in developing the proposed policy.



President Crowley stated that he had no objection to

postponing the decision in adopting this policy. He

introduced Dr. Kenneth Hunter, Jr., Associate Vice

President for Research at UNR.



Dr. Hunter referred to Mr. Quirk's letter with regard

to the distribution of income of 60% of net income to

the inventor being substantially too high to enable

the University to develop a profitable licensing pro-

gram. Dr. Hunter stated that historically there are

few Universities that have made a profit from this

income. He suggested that additional incentives be

offered to the faculty inventory, and when it is pos-

sible, the University should aid in promoting the in-

vention to the private sector and other Universities.



In reference to Mr. Quirk's letter, Mr. Foley question-

ed why there were not operative guidelines for handling

copyrightable products, trade secrets or trademarks.

Dr. Hunter replied the copyright policy requires addi-

tional study, but when complete, each Campus, utilizing

UNS guidelines, should develop administrative guide-

lines to fit their own Campus needs.



President Taranik stated that the policy had been under

discussion for some time before Dr. Bill Bishop, DRI

Vice President for Research, came to DRI, but that he

had reviewed the policy. He felt that the patent

policy promotes and encourages faculty to be more

creative and stated that DRI is supportive of the

policy, but agreed that it should be reviewed. DRI

Faculty Senate Chairman, Alan Gertler, agreed with

President Taranik and added that the policy provided

benefits for the faculty and also gives flexibility

to the faculty.



Mr. Foley stated that he agreed there should be a

policy, but felt it should incorporate both copyright

and invention policies. He requested that changes be

brought forth before final approval.



Mr. Klaich stated that an enormous amount of energy

has been devoted to the policy and suggested that the

policy be accepted with changes and a policy on copy-

rights be added at a later date.



President Crowley agreed with Mr. Klaich and stated

that there was a general feeling of urgency for the

patent policy to be accepted. He suggested that the

copyright policy be reviewed by the faculty to explore

all the possibilities and encouraged further input

into the policy.



(2) Approved the B. A. in Music at UNLV, as contained in

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



This program will complement other existing programs

in Music by providing students the opportunity to

pursue a Music major within a Liberal Arts focus.



The B. A. degree differs from the existing Bachelor

of Music degree, which is directed toward professional

studies. Similar courses are required; however, the

curriculum will include a great emphasis on the Liberal

Arts.



No new courses, personnel, or facilities are needed at

the present time. Enrollment is anticipated to reach

15 students by the 4th year of the program.



(3) Approved the Ph. D. in Chemical Physics at UNR, as con-

tained in Ref. AA-3, filed in the Regents' Office.



This interdisciplinary program will offer a curriculum

for students pursuing studies in Physical Chemistry or

Atomic and Molecular Physics.



This program will respond to a demand for trained

Chemical Physicists in academics, private industry and

government laboratories.



The primary administrative function will be admission

to the program, which will largely be performed by the

individual Departments. No new faculty, courses, staff

and resources are required to implement the program.



(4) Approved the A. A. S. degree, Legal Assistant, at

TMCC, as contained in Ref. AA-4, filed in the Regents'

Office.



The program will provide graduates with the skills and

competencies necessary for employment in the legal

services field.



Professional education and training has become in-

creasingly important as a minimum requirement for Legal

Assistants. This program will follow guidelines set

forth by the American Bar Association, and TMCC will

seek accreditation by this organization after a two-

year period.



No new funding is required, as courses will be taught

by Instructors from related disciplines. Enrollment

is anticipated to reach 40 FTE by the 4th year of the

program.



Vice President of Academic Affairs, John Scally, in-

dicated that this program carried out the mission of

response to the community needs. Legal Assistant is

one of the fastest growing fields across the country.

Dr. Barbara Chism, Director of Business Administration,

and Ms. Barbara Grimm, Department Chair of Office Ad-

ministration, both stated that this program will com-

plement the other programs within the Business Divi-

sion at TMCC.



Dr. Chism stated that the courses will begin Fall,

1990, with two courses offered in the Fall and three

courses offered in the Spring of 1991.



(5) Approved the name change from the Department of Health

Resources at UNR to be changed to the Department of

Community Health Sciences at UNR. This change will

more accurately reflect the focus of the Department.



(6) Approved the name changes of two Departments in the

College of Engineering at UNLV. The changes are as

follows: the Department of Electrical Engineering

changed to Electrical and Computer Engineering, the

Department of Civil Engineering changed to Civil and

Environmental Engineering.



Mr. Foley moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Academic Affairs Committee. Mrs. Whitley seconded.

Motion carried.

Mrs. Cardinal responded that the University of Nevada

Press Advisory Board makes the final decisions. The

Advisory Board consists of 3 UNLV faculty members, 3

UNR faculty members and 1 Community College faculty

member. Mr. Rogich requested that a representative

from each Community College be placed on the University
