4. Building Committee



Dr. Anderson, Chairman, discussed the meeting held on

February 22, 1963 as follows:



BOARD OF REGENTS BUILDING COMMITTEE

February 22, 1963



Present: Dr. Anderson, Mr. Germain, Mr. Grant, Mrs. Magee,

Mr. Jacobsen, Dr. Lombardi, President Armstrong, Vice Presi-

dent Young, Business Manager Humphrey, Engineer Rogers,

Attorney Finnegan. Guests: Milton Sharp, Myneer Walker,

Marilyn Horn and Edward Parsons.



1. Physical Education Facilities, Reno



Mr. Sharp and Mr. Walker of the Alumni Association ex-

pressed their concern that the new Stadium have suffi-

cient seating capacity. Mr. Rogers reported that the

Stadium was planned to have an original seating capacity

of 7,500 seats, eventually to be expanded to 15,000

seats. It was pointed out that it would be difficult

to sell the Legislature on allocating money for more

than 7,500 seats to start with, in view of the past his-

tory of attendance in the present Stadium (which pro-

vides 6,000 seats). The Stadium is used for football

games only four times a year. Mr. Rogers said that it

would be possible to plan the Stadium so that blocks of

seats could be added as needed, and that seating even

could be carried beyond 15,000 if needed.



Mr. Sharp asked if Clark Field could be adapted for

football so that the home games wouldn't have to be

played off Campus during the 1963 season. Mr. Rogers

said that this possibility had been studied and dis-

carded as too expensive and difficult of implementation.

Mr. Grant asked if the Alumni Association would object

if the games were played off Campus (at local high

school fields) for the one season; the answer was no.

Mr. Germain suggested that one game could be played in

Las Vegas.



Mr. Sharp asked what would be done if the money were

not provided for the new Stadium. The Regents indicated

that they would have to restudy the entire Master Plan.

Dr. Lombardi suggested that the Alumni Association could

be quite helpful in supporting the University's total

budget request, including money for the new Stadium.



2. Home Management Residence, Reno



Dr. Horn and Mr. Parsons presented preliminary plans

for the Home Management Residence, to be placed in part

of the patio area of the Sarah Hamilton Fleischmann

School of Home Economics. There was some discussion of

the problem of delivering supplies and removing garbage.

Mr. Parsons assured the Committee that the architecture

would be compatible with the rest of the building. The

need for adequate security was discussed.



Action: Dr. Lombardi moved, Mr. Jacobsen seconded, that

the preliminary plans be recommended for approval by the

Board of Regents. Motion passed.



3. Fine Arts Complex, Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers presented slightly revised preliminary plans

for the Fine Arts Complex at Las Vegas, designed to

answer the questions raised by the Regents at a previous

meeting. The revised plans met with the approval of the

Faculty Committee, the State Planning Board staff and

the University Engineer's Office.



Action: Mr. Germain moved, Mr. Jacobsen seconded, that

revised preliminary plans be recommended for approval

by the Board of Regents. Motion passed.



4. Right of Way, Flamingo Road, Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers reported that Clark County is in the process

of acquiring a 100-foot right of way on Flamingo Road

for immediate use of a county sanitation district sewer

project. Clark County has requested that the Board of

Regents execute a proposed easement over the northerly

portion of the Nevada Southern Campus bordering Flamingo

Road. The matter was referred to Mr. Finnegan of the

Attorney General's Office for review of the legal im-

plications.



5. Capital Outlay Request, Las Vegas



Dr. Armstrong pointed out that approximately $350,000 of

the capital outlay request for Nevada Southern was not

included in the Governor's recommended budget. He rec-

ommended that the Board of Regents direct the President

to request the Clark County delegation to seek legisla-

tion appropriating these funds. Dr. Lombardi urged

that similar procedure be followed with the Washoe

County delegation concerning the Reno Campus needs.



Action: Mr. Jacobsen moved, Mr. Germain seconded, that

the Board of Regents be asked to reaffirm its position

concerning the importance of all items included in the

original capital outlay request for both Campuses.

Motion passed.



5. Radiological Laboratory, Las Vegas



The Committee took up the problem brought up at the

last meeting of the Board of Regents relative to the

financing of additional facilities for the Radiological

Laboratory. Mr. Finnegan reported that bonds for this

purpose would not become general obligation bonds. The

conditions would depend to a great extent on what would

be required by the buyer of the bonds. Mr. Finnegan

said that he believed that legally the University itself

could issue the bonds. However, Dr. Armstrong said that

from a practical standpoint, it would be wise to seek

authorizing legislation. Mr. Finnegan and Mr. Humphrey

were asked to study the feasibility of obtaining auth-

orizing legislation, contingent upon a long-term lease

with the Federal Government.



7. Livestock Building, Reno



Dr. Armstrong reported that the College of Agriculture

has recommended that the Nevada Junior Livestock Show

Board be permitted to locate a multiple-purpose live-

stock building in Field #30 of the Main Station Farm,

if funds are appropriated for such a facility. The

Board of Regents at a meeting on February 25, 1961

authorized the Building Committee to take appropriate

action when details of such a proposal become more

concrete.



Action: Mr. Jacobsen moved, Dr. Lombardi seconded,

that the Building Committee approve this recommendation.

Motion passed.



8. Desert Research Institute, Reno



Dr. Armstrong reported that the Desert Research Insti-

tute staff has submitted a recommendation that a build-

ing be constructed for D. R. I. purposes at an estimated

cost of $300,000. The building would be located adja-

cent to the Atmospherium-Planetarium, with Mr. Ray

Hellman as architect, and would be financed by Fleisch-

mann funds.



Action: Mr. Germain moved, Dr. Lombardi seconded, that

the Board of Regents be asked to approve this project,

with Mr. Hellman as architect. Motion passed.



9. Weller Property, Reno



Mr. Rogers reported that Mr. Weller, who can occupy his

property for one more year, desires to have the curb

in front of the house painted yellow.



Action: Dr. Lombardi moved, Mr. Jacobsen seconded, that

the Board of Regents go on record as not objecting to

Mr. Weller's request. Motion passed.



Kenneth Young

Acting Secretary



Stadium



Dr. Anderson and Mr. Rogers discussed seating as to the

difference in cost between installing 10,000 seats at one

time and installing 7,500 seats with the idea of increasing

to 10,000 at a later date. The matter was generally dis-

cussed and agreement reached that it be left to the Admin-

istration whether or not to present the request to the

Legislature with 10,000 or with 7,500 seating. It was

agreed that figures should be ready and available for Leg-

islators showing the difference, from the point of economy.



Home Management Residence



Mr. Rogers discussed preliminary plans as approved by the

Building Committee.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that the preliminary plans be approved.



Easement Request, Nevada Southern



Dr. Anderson, Mr. Rogers and Dr. Armstrong discussed the

request of Clark County for a 50-foot right-of-way on

Flamingo Road for a sewer project immediately and for the

construction of a highway later.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

unanimously that the requested property be deeded to Clark

County, and that Chairman Grant be authorized to sign on

behalf of the Board, after the matter is cleared as to

legal aspects with the Office of the Attorney General.



Capital Outlay



Dr. Armstrong discussed the cut which was recommended by

Governor Sawyer to the Legislature in the Capital Outlay

budget, mentioning especially what it would do to halt

the growth of Nevada Southern.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

unanimously that the Board of Regents reaffirm its position

regarding all Capital Outlay requests, including land ac-

quisition, for both Campuses, and that the Administration

take any steps deemed necessary to obtain desirable action

by the Legislature.



State Debt Limitation



The bonded indebtedness limitation of the State was dis-

cussed, especially as it affects the University Building

Program.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the Board of Regents go on record as endorsing

Assembly Joint Resolution No. 3 introduced by Dr. R. Guild

Gray of Las Vegas "to amend the Nevada Constitution by in-

creasing the public debt limit to 2 percent of the assessed

valuation of the State, including the value placed upon

motor vehicles for the purposes of any tax upon motor

vehicles provided by the Legislature in lieu of an ad

valorem property tax."



Radiological Laboratory



Methods of securing funds for the project were again dis-

cussed and possible request for appropriation by the

Legislature considered.



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

unanimously that the Administration be instructed to in-

vestigate various methods of financing, and their feasi-

bility, and to take whatever action was deemed to be best,

acting in consultation with the Board of Regents and others

who might be available for assistance.



Livestock Building



Dr. Anderson discussed the item from the minutes of the

Building Committee.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that the Regents ratify the action of the

Building Committee in approving a Livestock building in

Field No. 30 of the Main Station Farm.



DRI Research Institute Building



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the Board approve the

request for a building to be located adjacent to the

Atmospherium-Planetarium building, to be paid from Fleisch-

mann Foundation Grant Funds; and that Ray Hellman be named

architect.



Weller Property



Mr. Weller, 1416 North Virginia Street, had reported that

he was inconvenienced by the ruling that cars cannot park

on that side of the street, since he conducts a business

there and clients are unable to stop.



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

unanimously that the University go on record as not object-

ing to the curbing in front of Mr. Weller's property being

painted yellow, thus permitting short stops.

6. Budget Hearing



President Armstrong announced that the budget hearing before

the Ways and Means Committee of the Assembly has been sched-

uled for 2:30 P.M. on Wednesday, February 27.



7. HHFA Application



Although the Board has previously officially authorized the

President to sign HHFA applications, definite action at

this time was considered advisable.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried unani-

mously that the President of the University be authorized

to make application on behalf of the University of Nevada

to HHFA for the contemplated Dormitory construction proj-

ects, and that he be authorized to sign the necessary

documents.



8. Master Plan



Mr. Grant called attention to the figure of 1700 FTE for

projected enrollment in 1972 for Las Vegas and objected to

its use, as being unrealistic. There was general agreement.

Dr. Armstrong pointed out that the Master Plans are flexible

and not tied to calendar dates, but rather based on needs

in relation to projected enrollments and should be used

accordingly. There was general agreement. It was agreed

that the Administration should annually evaluate the enroll-

ment growth and enrollment projections, which in turn could

be used in re-evaluating the Master Plan.



9. Legislation, Budget Request



In response to a question by Dr. Lombardi, Dr. Armstrong

discussed the Governor's recommended cut in the University

budget program, saying that the University might have to

limit enrollment if the Legislature continues to cut our

request for funds. He said that the cut would particularly

hamper the University in recruiting new faculty and in keep-

ing the present faculty, since salary levels must be main-

tained to meet competition. Savings cannot be made on sal-

aries or utilities, so that equipment, supplies and capital

improvements must be cut instead. Of the total proposed

biennial budget for the next two years, approximately 70%

is designated for salaries, and the remaining 30% is for

travel, operating and equipment. He reported that a bill

has been introduced to restore the amount which was cut

for Library support for the two Campuses.



Dr. Lombardi reiterated the President's statements and

called attention to the need for staff and equipment to

make full use of the buildings. When the Legislature

approves capital improvements, it should also realize that

expenses in these areas go up also.



10. Class A Action: Admissions, Academic Standards and Related

Matters



Dr. Shirley was present to discuss this matter, which was

held over from the last meeting for further study and in-

formation. President Armstrong recommended approval, point-

ing out that these changes had the overwhelming approval of

the faculty. Also, many of the changes were originally pro-

posed by the ASUN Senate.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that the Class A Action be approved, as follows:



I. Student Classifications



A. Regular: A matriculated student is one who has

met all requirements for admission as a candidate

for a degree and has paid the matriculation fee.

The student may be full time or part time and may

be admitted to either regular status or to un-

classified status.



1. Classified: Students normally qualify upon

graduation from an accredited or approved high

school, provided the admission requirements

are satisfied, or by transferring from an ac-

credited institution. Currently a minimum of

16 total units from high school are required

with:



a. a minimum of 10 academic units

b. a maximum of 6 elective units may apply

toward the total of 16 units



A minimum of 6 units must be grades of B or

equivalent, 4 of which must be in academic

subjects.



Of the 10 academic units, 7 specific units

are required: English 3, Algebra or Geometry

1, Science 1, Social Science 2.



Recommendation of High School Principal (or

Counselor) required.



a) For students from other states of the USA

of above average ability and academic

accomplishment and whose preparation may

not have included the University of Nevada

required subject matter pattern, the Dean

of the College concerned and the Director

of Admissions, in consultation, are auth-

orized to permit exception to the subject

matter pattern to a limit of 2 units.



b) Academically qualified foreign students

unable to meet the specific subject matter

requirements may be admitted on satisfac-

tion of the following requirements:



1) Evidence of above average ability in

an academic curriculum from an edu-

cational institution equivalent to an

American High School.



2) Evidence of above average ability in

an academic curriculum as verified by

official transcripts of satisfactory

test scores.



3) Certification from an officially rec-

ognized agency or individual or a

demonstrated ability to speak, write

and understand the English language.



4) Adequate proof of financial responsi-

bility or sponsorship by a reputable

United States citizen or organization

for all obligations while attending

the University.



5) A medical examination including proof

of a tuberculin test (patch or x-ray)

within the last year and smallpox vac-

cination within 3 years is required.



6) If transferring from another United

States educational institution, sub-

mission of a letter from the U. S.

Department of Immigration Regional

Office authorizing the transfer.



2. Unclassified Students



a) Legal residents of Nevada who do not meet

the admission requirements to classified

status, but who have graduated from high

school with an overall "C" or equivalent

average. Students who are unclassified

by reason of not meeting the 6 quality

unit requirement will be admitted on pro-

bation with the usual consequence of pro-

bation.



b) Nevada high school graduates, or gradu-

ates of an out-of-state high school who

are legal residents of Nevada or whose

parents or guardians are legal residents

of Nevada, with less than a "C" average

may qualify for admission to unclassified

status on probation by passing entrance

examinations.



c) Legal residents of Nevada 21 years of age

or over, who have not graduated from high

school may qualify for admission to un-

classified status on probation by passing

entrance examination.



B. Special Students



1. Persons who are 21 years of age or more or

who can present evidence of high school grad-

uation may enroll without formal admission to

the University. These students will be limit-

ed to 6 semester credits (or equivalent) in

any one registration. Although there is no

limit to the number of credits which may be

earned in this category, a maximum of 12

credits only will be acceptable toward a

baccalaureate degree.



2. Auditors may enroll at any time during the

semester with permission of the instructor

and the Dean and payment of the proper fees.



II. Probation - A student will be placed on scholstic pro-

bation at any time if:



A. His cumulative grade point average is below 2.00.



B. His grade point average for each of two successive

semesters is below 2.00 even though his cumulative

average is 2.00 or above.



C. His grade point average for any semester is below

1.00.



III. Suspension - A student will be suspended at any time

if his grade point deficiency below a cumulative grade

point average of 2.00 exceeds 14.



A. A student suspended from the University may not be

readmitted until after an interval of one semes-

ter. He will be suspended a second time whenever

his grade point average at the end of any semester

is less than 2.00 and his total grade point defi-

ciency exceeds 14. Students suspended a second

time from the University may not be readmitted un-

til after an interval of one year. A student re-

admitted after suspension is on probation.



B. Any student under scholastic suspension may apply

by written petition for readmission. The petition

must be filed at least four weeks prior to the

first day of class of the semester in which the

student desires to re-enter. The proper forms

may be obtained from Office of Student Affairs.



C. After a year's experience the minus 14 criterion

and its effectiveness shall be reviewed to deter-

mine whether or not it should be raised or lower-

ed.



D. Unless additional study of the consequences of

probation and suspension reveal desirable changes

not apparent as yet, no changes shall be made in

these consequences.



IV. Disqualification



A. Conditions: A student readmitted after a second

scholastic suspension is disqualified whenever

his semester grade point average is less than 2.00

and his total grade point deficiency exceeds 14.



B. Penalty for Disqualification: A disqualified

student is permanently excluded from registration

for credit in any course offered by the University

of Nevada.



Implementation dates were established as follows:



a) June 1, 1963 for all new students entering

the University after that date.

b) June 1, 1964 for students currently enrolled

in the University.

c) English A classes will be discontinued after

1963-64, except as special services offered

by the Department of English in the Summer

School or through the Office of Statewide

Services. In 1964-65 and thereafter students

who have not qualified by examination for

English 101 will be admitted to and required

to register in Statewide Services or Summer

Session courses in English A.



11. Basketball, Nevada Southern



Mr. Germain called attention to the outstanding record of

the Basketball Team at Nevada Southern, which is rated as

one of the best of the small Colleges throughout the nation,

"reflecting creditably on the State".



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried

unanimously that the Board of Regents officially compliment

the Coach, members of the staff, the Administration, and

each member of the team for his fine record.



12. Salary Schedule, Statewide Services



President Armstrong presented the proposal of Acting Dean

Kelly. In order to make provision for faculty teaching

laboratory courses to be paid for the hours spent in teach-

ing laboratories, the following formula was developed and

President Armstrong recommended approval:



($175 times number of credits) plus (total hours labor-

atory and lecture-number of credits times $50) equals

salary.



President Armstrong presented a proposal for persons teach-

ing in the Technical Education Program. At present, part-

time instructional staff receive $175 per credit based on

16 hours instruction. The salary schedule of the Vocational

and Adult Education Division of the State Department of

Education is as follows:



1. University Staff



a. $175 per credit hour (16 hours instruction)

b. $200 maximum off-Campus



2. Degree Personnel



a. $130 per credit hour (16 hours instruction)

b. $50 maximum travel per course (off-Campus)



3. Non-Degree Personnel



a. $7 per instruction hour

b. $25 maximum travel per course (off-Campus)



Under this arrangement Statewide Services can lose mon-

ies by using the present system of $175 per credit. It

is therefore recommended the salary schedule established

by the Vocational and Adult Education Division be adopt-

ed by the University of Nevada for technical education

courses until such time as the University could provide

full time faculty for this purpose. It is further rec-

ommended the following definitions be used to designate

the classification of personnel:



1. University Staff - Any member of the University

faculty or staff employed full time under contract

and qualified to teach in the program.



2. Degree Personnel - Persons holding at least a bache-

lor's degree or a degree from a technical institute

and not employed by the University or employed less

than full time.



3. Non-Degree Personnel - Persons qualified to teach

in the technical institute program by reason of

training or experience.



Finally, there is no change contemplated at the present

time in the salary schedule for instructors in off-

Campus courses.



President Armstrong recommended approval of these proposals.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously that the recommendations be approved.



13. Survey, Business Office



Mr. Humphrey discussed comments and recommendations which

he had prepared and distributed at the last meeting of the

Board of Regents on the survey of the Office of the Business

Manager by Dr. Clarence Scheps. There was some discussion.



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

unanimously that the report be accepted.



14. Acceptance of Gifts



President Armstrong presented the following list of gifts

and recommended that they be accepted officially:



Library, Reno Campus



From Mr. and Mrs. Carl Esping, Reno - 30 volumes including

Mark Twain's complete works and Dan De Quille's "The Big

outstanding service to the University. Both Deans had been

recommended by the administrative staffs and faculties of

their Colleges.

unanimously that Dean Blodgett and Dean Adams be granted

the status of Emeritus Dean and Professor, effective July

1, 1963.



16. Investment Committee



President Armstrong recommended that the appointment of Mr.

E. L. Cord and Mr. Julius Bergen be confirmed as public

mously that Mr. Bergen and Mr. Cord be confirmed as public

members of the Investment Committee of the University.



17. African Scholarship Program



President Armstrong presented the proposal of the Student

Affairs Office that the University contact the African

Scholarship Program of American Universities to see if it

is possible to obtain another student under the same ar-

rangement we now have with ASPAU for a student now enrolled.

Expenses to the University would amount to tuition waiver

and fees - $800 for the year.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously that the Administration be so authorized.



18. Transfer of Budgeted Funds



President Armstrong reported the following transfers from

Reserve for Contingency, which did not require action by

the Board:



#50 $744 to Military Department to provide for reclassi-

fication of a clerical employee.



#54 $1000 to Miscellaneous, Not Otherwise Classified, to

meet miscellaneous expenses (mainly reconciling costs

for new Deans of Engineering and Agriculture).



#55 $216 to Central Office Services to provide for sick

leave replacement.



#56 $725 to Library, Reno, to provide extra part-time staff

to keep Library open five extra hours per week.

19. National Defense Student Loan Fund



The University of Nevada has heretofore used amounts from

its own loan funds as matching money for National Defense

Student Loans. President Armstrong indicated that the

funds have now been used to the point where it is unwise

to use them further for this purpose. He recommended that

the University seek matching funds from the current session

of the Legislature.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unanimous-

ly that the Administration be authorized to seek such leg-

islation.



20. Lucy Grimes Burton Estate



The First National Bank has made distribution of the Estate

of Lucy Grimes Burton. The University received a check in

the amount of $14,200. The Will provides - "If there should

be anything left after above instructions are carried out,

it is to go to the University of Nevada, at least one-half

to be used for the benefit of the English Department".



President Armstrong recommended, in view of the expressed

wish of Mrs. Burton, that at least half be used for the

benefit of the English Department, the entire amount be

made available to that Department to aid in the implement-

ing of the Ph. D. Program, primarily for acquisition of

Library material.



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

unanimously that the $14,200 be accepted officially and

that it be used for the furtherance of the Ph. D. Program

in English, in accord with the above recommendation.



21. Educational Planning Committee Report



The report had previously been mailed to each member of the

Board, and Mr. Grant discussed it briefly. He mentioned

the recommendation, made in several places, that Nevada

Southern Regional Division should work toward autonomy, that

the aim is that it become a four-year degree granting insti-

tution in 1964. He also mentioned the recommendation that

the Administration be re-organized by appointing a Provost

or Chancellor for each Campus, with liaison committees in

many areas. Mr. Grant suggested that the Board consider

these changes at an appropriate time, probably after Nevada

Southern reaches degree status.



President Armstrong furthered the discussion, and said that

this study is already in process. It is hoped to have rec-

ommendations from the faculty and Administration of Nevada

Southern by the end of this fiscal year.



22. Regents' Meetings



President Armstrong proposed that the next meeting be held

on March 23 in Reno and that the Salary Committee meet

prior to that date to review faculty salaries on present

positions. The Regents agreed and the date was set.



The following meeting of the Board was set for Saturday,

April 27, in Las Vegas.



23. Commencement



The matter of a Commencement speaker was discussed and Dr.

Armstrong asked that any suggestions be sent to him. Mr.

Grant asked that suggestions for honorary degree recipients

and Distinguished Nevadan Awards be forwarded to the Chair-

man of the Committee, Mrs. Magee, as soon as possible.



The meeting adjounred at 2:00 P.M. and went into Executive Ses-

sion to consider personnel matters.
