8. Legislative Update



Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks presented an update on the UNS

1989-91 Biennial Budget Request and distributed the Gover-

nor's Recommendations, filed in the Regents Office.



The following are the Governor's recommendations:



1. UNS enrollment projections have been adopted.



2. Student/faculty ratios are unchanged from current

levels.



3. Full-time/part-time ratios are unchanged from current

levels (57:43).



4. Inflationary assumptions have been reduced to 3% except

for books and utilities which generally remain as

requested.



5. Support formulas are being recommended at 10% of the

difference between base budgets and full funding. A 5%

increase is provided for the second year.



6. Additional classified salary for UNS is being budgeted

in System Administration as a result of the Occupational

Study, recently completed by the State Personnel Office:

$445,265 in FY 90 and $450,625 in FY 91.



7. The Governor has recommended Estate Tax expenditures of

$2.5 million each year of the 1989-91 biennium.



8. The Governor has recommended $20.2 million for the bi-

ennium for UNS Priority Requests for New Funding.



9. The Governor has recommended $51 million for the UNS

Capital Improvement Program.



The Governor recommended $10 million for maintenance but did

not re-dedicate the funds from HECC. UNS will peruse HECC

funding for future projects.



Mr. Klaich inquired about the Governor's recommendation re-

garding the UNLV Health Sciences Center whereas the Governor

has recommended not funding completion of the 3rd floor.

Discussion revealed Board support for optimizing the build-

ing funds and an effort be made to attract private funding

to complete the building.



9. Discussion on Higher Education Issues



UNS legislative issues in Nevada were the topic for the dis-

cussion. Nevada State Senator Ray Rawson, Assemblymen Marv

Sedway and James Spinello, and Ms. Cecelia Colling from the

Governor's Office participated in an informal panel discus-

sion on assessing the status of higher education issues in

the Nevada Legislature and the effect of these issues on the

future of higher education in the State.



Assemblyman Sedway opened the discussion stating that he

felt the Legislature was proud of the higher education

system in Nevada and acknowledging that it is the fastest

growing system in the nation. He reminded the group that

the State resources are finite and alluded to the number of

requests facing the lawmakers. He stated the Governor was

generous to higher education even though the amount of State

funds allotted to education has been decreasing from a high

of 60% of the State budget to the current 57.1. He called

for UNS to help with a grass roots approach to increasing

State revenues.



Assemblyman Spinello opened his comments by relating that in

the Chinese language there are two meanings for the word

"crisis" -- "danger" and "opportunity", and he felt Nevada

is now at the crisis stage. He explained that the "danger"

in Nevada is that we will pass on less (in the area of

education) to our children, but that the "opportunity" is

that the Legislature is aware of the situation and there are

a number of Legislators willing to make a commitment to

education.



Senator Rawson referred to the sentiment expressed in a

Regent election a few years ago when the statement was made

that "there is no purpose for research in our higher educa-

tion system.." which causes a worry about whether we are

allowing enough room for innovation and thought in higher

education because Nevada does compete on a world level. He

stressed the need for opportunity for students to be trained

as productive citizens. He called for assistance from the

higher education community in the lowering of student/facul-

ty ratios in the public schools, and the proper teacher

training in higher education.



Mrs. Colling stated that Governor Miller is committed to

education and to economic development within the State and

is very much aware of the importance of quality education to

the economic development movement. She related that the

Governor is also aware of the pursuit on the part of the

higher education community for outside funding to fill the

void when State funds are not available. On behalf of the

Governor, she complimented the UNS on the well-thought out

priorities and the commitment and planning that has been

undertaken for the accomplishment of those goals. She urged

that communication lines be kept open.



Senator Rawson expressed the need to assure diversity in

higher education for citizens: not just 4-year or graduate

programs but for those persons to access and leave the Sys-

tem at any point.



Assemblyman Sedway related that Nevada has a two-fold prob-

lem, one of supplying the buildings for students to achieve

a basic education, which is addressed at all times, but that

the problem of acquiring top scholars and quality faculty

has never been addressed; that the funding formulas do not

address this second question.



President Maxson suggested that getting the public to under-

stand the amount of funds required to bring top scholars to

an institution is a long undertaking, and questioned whether

the Legislature might consider establishing a matching fund

for outside funds raised for this endeavor. Senator Rawson

questioned whether priorities for new buildings in higher

education institutions might be re-worked to include a cer-

tain amount for a Chair to be included in the appropriation

for each new building.



Mr. Klaich reminded the group that at this point in time the

formula for the UNS Base Budget is not fully funded, and

that it seemed to him UNS is always trading qualities for

"just running the business". Mrs. Sparks related that the

Regents are very much aware of the pressures on the Legisla-

tors from the other government agencies and cited UNS ef-

forts in outside fund raising and the assistance given in

the passage of the estate tax funds, and that UNS is willing

to continue these efforts.



President Crowley related that this discussion was a truly

remarkable occasion inasmuch as ten years ago the UNS credi-

bility was down and the Legislators would not have been so

willing to discuss these issues. He stated he was greatly

encouraged by the cooperation, that UNS is enjoying more

resources now and that makes it easier to recruit quality

faculty, but we must work to retain them to assure our stu-

dents of quality education in the future. He cautioned that

the 1990s will see a major crisis nationwide in piracy of

quality faculty among the Universities and urged the full

funding of the base budgets.



Reminding the group that over the last 20 years the State

budget as submitted by the Governor has been funded within

1% to 3%, Assemblyman Sedway said that the request for 1989-

91 is a 25% increase over 1987-89. And citing that 87% of

the land in Nevada is owned by the Federal government, 4% by

the State and only 9% is in private hands for taxing pur-

poses, he questioned how State revenues could keep pace with

demands. He suggested that revenues will have to be raised

in some form prior to the closing of the current Session.



Answering a question concerning the recently completed study

on State revenues, Assemblyman Sedway responded that the

study was based on those services currently being provided.

Mr. Klaich commented on the citizens group which had review-

ed the study and reported to the Legislature, and on the

unanimity of the committee in their recommendation that the

State must now "bite-the-bullet" and provide for additional

resources to meet the needs of the State.



Dr. Robert Ebel, Executive Director of the Advisory Commis-

sion on Intergovernmental Relations, stated that in the

study the general fund projections were based on current

services provided. Since the release of the study, they

have developed a new statement on how well each State meets

their expenditure needs. Nevada is 20% below the national

average expenditures in K-12 education, and 10-12% below in

higher education. Correction-police expenditures in Nevada

are 50% above, highway expenditures are 6% above, and over-

all, Nevada is not meeting its expenditure needs.



Assemblyman Spinello suggested that the Legislature needs to

deal with the Nevada prison system problems, citing Nevada

has the highest prison population in the country and is the

lowest in parole of prisoners. President Calabro briefly

discussed education programs being offered to the incarcer-

ated and stated that the programs are run by "scrounging"

funds -- from the College, from outside sources, from fi-

nancial aid programs. He cited a study which shows that

those inmates who complete the AA degree and are later re-

leased, do not return to prison.



Senator Rawson commented on the dual and shared programs

within UNS, stating they are most appreciated by the Legis-

lature, and are found to be very exciting.



Chairman Whitley thanked the Legislators for their interest

and taking time from very busy schedules to meet with Re-

gents and discuss mutual issues in higher education in the

Legislature.



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

ary 24, 1989, with all Regents present except Regents Foley and

Karamanos.

physical master plan. These individual plans will be for-

warded to the Chancellor's Office for review by the System's

Technical Review Committee which may include an outside con-

sultant(s). A single System master plan will then be for-

warded to the Board. The Chancellor has formed a Systemwide

Committee to develop a procedure for making long-term en-

rollment forecasts which are an important component of the

Campuses' physical master plans. Funds may be needed to

develop enrollment forecasts.

Section 8 of the Board of Regents Handbook, Professional

Staff Collective Bargaining Regulations, established that

the only recognized collective bargaining unit is one defin-

ed as a Systemwide unit for purposes of collective bargain-

ing. It was approved unanimously by the Board at its Janu-

ary 22, 1982 meeting. A review and lengthy discussion of

this policy was held.



Given renewed interest and concern about this issue, Chan-

cellor Dawson requested that time be allotted to provide

all concerned the opportunity to discuss this issue. He

further recommended that the current policy remain in force.



Dr. Jim Richardson, speaking on behalf of Barbara Nelson,

President of the Nevada Faculty Alliance (NFA), stated the

NFA was requesting the Board of Regents to consider a change

in the Handbook concerning the policy on collective bargain-

ing units of the University of Nevada System. NFA is pro-

posing two separate units for bargaining purposes: one for

the Community Colleges and one for the Universities and all

others within the System. He gave three reasons for the

request:



1. Historical. A majority of Community Colleges across the

nation are allowed to bargain separately, and up until

1982 7 bargaining units were authorized within UNS.



2. Desire of the Employees. The Community College facul-

ties prefer to have a separate bargaining unit. Last

year 60% of the faculty members on two of the Campuses

within UNS signed pledge cards requesting an election

be held. NFA has chapters on all Community College

Campuses; dues are $30 per month per member. The Uni-

versity and DRI faculties are not interested in col-

lective bargaining at this time.



3. Community of Interest. The faculties on the Community

Colleges share work styles and have common interests.



Mr. Bob Rose, President of the TMCC chapter of NFA, further

discussed the community of interest on the Campuses. He

stated that Community College faculty salaries are lower

than at the Universities; tenure is different at Community

Colleges and is based on classroom experience with no re-

search being required. He also cited:



Community Colleges are treated differently in the bi-

ennial budget in that the student/faculty ratios

are higher.

The Bylaws are different.

The teaching loads are different; Community Colleges

have normal teaching loads at 15 hours.

In 1975 the collective bargaining policies cited a

unit for the Community Colleges. Mrs. Gallagher

interjected that at that time there was a Division

of Community Colleges under a President who reported

directly to the Board and that the individual Cam-

puses were headed by an Executive Dean who reported

to the President of that Division.

There is ample precedent in the UNS Code, Regent poli-

cies and Bylaws.

The missions of the Community Colleges set them apart.



Dr. Richardson then gave five reasons for having a separate

bargaining unit:



1. The uniqueness of the Community Colleges in the UNS; he

cited a feeling of paternalism in connection with the

Community Colleges.

2. A majority of the Community College faculties want

collective bargaining.

3. A separate unit would resolve the issue within the UNS

as to the "family" standing of Community Colleges.

4. A vote at this meeting for a separate unit would remove

the issue as a legislative issue in the 1989 State

Legislative Session.

5. A separate unit would resolve the recurring issue within

the State Legislature of separating the Community Col-

leges from the UNS.



Dr. Richardson stated that if the Regents would approve this

proposal at this meeting, NFA would not call an election

this year but would work on the existing problems to the end

of the year.



Faculty Senate Chairman Dru Raney, CCCC, stated that the

majority of NFA members across the State are from CCCC and

the push for collective bargaining has come from that Cam-

pus. She stated she felt the Regents in general have feared

collective bargaining as an adversarial relationship. She

related that the Regents do not have the right to vote for

collective bargaining, that only the employees have that

right.



Ms. Raney stated that Community College faculty members are

codependent and do not like to be told what they can and

cannot do. She stated they did not like the paternalistic

attitude of Administration. She felt that sixty percent of

the faculty see Administration as authoritarian, and what

they really want is shared governance, but if they can't get

that they would take collective bargaining.



Concerning a vote on collective bargaining, Ms. Raney stated

she didn't think there would be a vote, but they just don't

want to be told they can't vote. She remarked that Communi-

ty College people feel like they are step-children, that

their needs are not important, that only the Universities

are important.



Faculty Senate Chairman Robert Mead, UNR, read a statement

from Dr. Cheryl Bowles, UNLV Faculty Senate Chairman. The

letter stated that she was opposed to collective bargaining

for UNLV and that a majority of the faculty agreed. The

perception at UNLV is that the faculty does have shared

governance with the Administration. UNLV also clearly

recognizes the basic differences between the Universities

and Community Colleges.



Dr. Mead then spoke on behalf of the UNR Senate, stating

that collective bargaining is not an issue at UNR, and that

they are against it. Their Senate feels matters can be

settled in a collegial manner. Also, he stated that he felt

merit should be handled differently on the University and

Community College Campuses.



Faculty Senate Chairman Gil Cochran, DRI, stated that not

only are there differences between the Universities and the

Community Colleges, but that DRI is different from either of

them. Employees at DRI negotiate with the Administrators at

DRI. He urged that DRI not be defined with either group in

a bargaining unit, that they do not want to be involved with

collective bargaining.



Faculty Senate Chairman Paul Nelson, WNCC, related that

historically WNCC has been opposed to collective bargaining

but their faculty had not been polled, therefore, there

wasn't a strong feeling on the matter.



Dr. John Yurtinus, Treasurer of the WNCC NFA Chapter, stated

that the differences between Universities and Community

Colleges does show up in Systemwide committees. He called

for more cohesiveness between the faculties.



President Berg welcomed the change (in 1982) to one bargain-

ing unit because of the disadvantage for the smaller Cam-

puses of having to become a part of collective bargaining

should they not want to. He cited that with a Community

College unit, the two larger Campuses would overpower the

decisions of the smaller Campuses.



Faculty Senate Chairman Patti Crookham, NNCC, related that

their faculty had not been polled, but that she, personally,

favored collective bargaining.



President Crowley stated that he favored each institution

deciding their own fate, that the Universities did not want

the Community Colleges deciding for them, and vice versa.

He related that as a faculty member at UNR, he had been a

charter member of the original group at UNR which later

became the NFA. The original organization grew out of a

need for problems to be heard, aired and solved. He stated

that he was not pleased with the 1982 decision for a single

unit. Further, he stated that he felt the Board needs to

recognize there are issues which should be addressed in this

controversy and to work out solutions to the problems.



He cited the fellowship within the UNS, which is a unity

that is fragile, but nonetheless powerful, and emphasized

that he did not want that unity disturbed.



Legal Counsel Donald Klasic clarified the 1982 decision,

stating that at that time the Community College Division was

dissolved and that prior to the dissolution there had been

7 units, with one election having taken place.



President Gwaltney related that he has worked with both

environments and stated that at the present, the Campus can

respond to an individual person, but that with collective

bargaining the Administration is working under a contract

with limitations and there are times they cannot deal with

the problems. He stated he felt the major problem for dis-

cussion should be that of structure and how to deal with

problems as they arise.



Mrs. Gallagher stated she feels the NFA does not speak for

the faculty of the System, that she is receiving a great

deal of comment from those faculty not involved in NFA. She

stated further that she does not feel collective bargaining

is the real issue at hand. She stated she'd always thought

the Faculty Senate Chairs were the spokesmen of the faculty,

but that there appear to be a number of problems of which

the Board has not been informed. She recalled a time in UNS

when Regents were invited to Senate meetings to listen and

receive insight into these problems. She stated she felt

the actions of the Board did show support for the faculties

and that she did not see that collective bargaining would

solve any of the problems. She suggested the Chairman ap-

point a committee to address these very real problems.



Mr. Klaich related that the previous statement on paternal-

ism is a cry for help from the Community Colleges to the

Board; that faculty feels the Board is not hearing and

addressing the problems and putting the Community Colleges

first. Concerning Dr. Richardson's remarks, he stated that

reason number 1 was of critical importance (paternalism), at

this time he did not have an opinion on number 2, but that

reasons 3, 4, and 5 concerning possibility of legislation

were excellent, but were not the reason he was elected to

the Board.



Concerning Ms. Raney's comments that Community Colleges only

have received shared governance through collective bargain-

ing was startling to Mr. Klaich, because if that is so, he

stated he felt the Board of Regents have failed because

faculties should be involved. Commenting on Dr. Mead's

statements, Mr. Klaich stated he felt the Board refused to

recognize the differences with merit pay at the Community

Colleges and the Universities. Mr. Klaich stated that, in

his opinion, the problems are not about collective bargain-

ing, but that they do need discussion and solutions. Mr.

Klasic clarified that "shared governance" is not a part of

the collective bargaining system.



In an unrelated issue, Mr. Klasic stated that should the

Board establish a committee he would advise against having

specific NFA representation on the committee because there

is the possibility that another employment organization will

develop and UNS could be accused of unfair labor practice

and essentially setting up a company union giving them de

facto recognition before an election occurs.



Dr. Hammargren stated that this must be handled by the Board

of Regents, not settled in the State Legislature, and he

offered the following motion:



Dr. Hammargren moved to allow the Community College facul-

ties to choose amongst themselves if they wish to join a

Community College bargaining unit as a separate bargaining

unit. Dr. Derby seconded.



Dr. Hammargren clarified the motion to state that it would

allow the faculty of any Community College Campus the choice

to join a single separate collective bargaining unit for the

Community Colleges by a majority of those eligible to vote.



Motion failed. Yea: Derby, Hammargren, Eardley

No : Klaich, Sparks, Gallagher, Whitley



Mr. Klaich then offered the following motion:



Mr. Klaich moved that the Chairman immediately appoint a

committee consisting of members of the Board, Administra-

tors and faculty, primarily but not necessarily entirely

from the Community College System, specifically including

membership from the Nevada Faculty Alliance, to review is-

sues pertaining to governance, working conditions and other

pertinent matters specifically involved with Community Col-

lege issues, and to report to the Board as to their findings

and any necessary changes that may be reflected in the Board

of Regents Code, Bylaws or Handbook, that are necessitated

by those findings; and that a report of the committee be

made not later than the second Board meeting of the 1989

academic year. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.

Voting no: Regent Eardley.



Dr. Hammargren reiterated that he would like to give the

Community College faculty a choice of whether they wanted to

belong to a collective bargaining unit.



Regent Hammargren moved to poll, through the Faculty Senates

of the Community College Campuses, should they wish to be

represented by a separate bargaining unit and to report back

by the April Board meeting. Mr. Klaich seconded.



Chairman Whitley clarified the motion to mean that the poll

would be taken of Community College faculty eligible to vote

for collective bargaining.



Motion carried.



After discussion of who was eligible to vote, it was agreed

that this poll would abide by the rules governing elections

as found in the Regents Handbook.



Chairman Whitley appointed the following persons to the ad

hoc committee on Community College Faculty Relations:

Presidents Calabro, Meacham, Gwaltney and Berg, Regents

Klaich, Derby, Sparks and Gallagher, Faculty Senate Chairmen

Crookham, Raney, Nelson, and Wilkins. (Note: It was later

discovered that Chairman Whitley intended for Faculty Senate

Chairman David Wilkins to be appointed to the committee and

had inadvertently announced Mr. Gary Young's name. (Mr.

Young is the President of the Student Government Association

at TMCC.)



Chairman Whitley relinquished the gavel to Vice Chairman

Gallagher.



18. Approved Addition to Handbook, Community College Plan for

Initial Salary Placement B Contract, Tenure Track Employees



Approved an addition to the Handbook, Title 4, Chapter 3,

Section 17, Community College Plan for Initial Salary

Placement B Contract, Tenure Track Employees, as contained

in Ref. B, filed in the Regents Office.



This section will be inserted as Section 17 and Sections 17

through 22 will be renumbered.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

the Community College Plan for Initial Salary Placement B

Contract, Tenure Track Employees. Mrs. Sparks seconded.

Motion carried.



Chairman Whitley returned and resumed the gavel. Dr. Eardley

left the meeting at this time.



19. Approved Deletion of Handbook Change, Presidential

Performance Appraisal



Chancellor Dawson requested approval of changes to the

Handbook, Title 4, Chapter 2, Section 3, Presidential Per-

formance Appraisal. After a trial period using the pro-

cedures outlined in the Handbook, and after discussion with

various publics and the Council of Presidents, it was felt

modifications were needed.



Dr. Derby expressed her opposition to the revisions. She

stated that the Board of Regents' primary responsibility is

to hire and evaluate its officers and felt the appraisal

committee should not allow the officer to choose his own

committee members.



Mrs. Gallagher stated that the Board should play an active

role in the review process.



Mr. Klaich moved to repeal the existing Presidential Per-

formance Appraisal Policy and referred the policy back to

the Chancellor for further development. Dr. Hammargren

seconded.



Dr. Gil Cochran, DRI Faculty Chairman, emphasized the need

for shared governance and requested that respective Faculty

Senates be included in the appraisal process.



Chairman Whitley expressed her concerns that affirmative

action and minority affairs should also be included in any

appraisal process.



Motion carried.



20. Approved UNS Premium Only Plan



Approved UNS Premium Only Plan which will be considered ef-

fective retroactive to January 1, 1989. See Ref. D, filed

in the Regents Office.



The purpose of the Plan is to provide employees of the

University with the opportunity to pay for certain medical

and life insurance premium costs on a before-tax basis by

means of salary reduction. The Plan is intended to qualify

as a cafeteria plan under Section 125 of the Internal Reve-

nue Code and is to be interpreted in a manner consistent

with the requirements of Section 125.



Chairman Whitley requested General Counsel Klasic to see if

this plan complies with Section 89 of the Internal Revenue

Code. (Note: Upon investigation, it was determined the

plan did comply with Section 89.)



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the UNS Premium Only Plan.

Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.



21. Approved Allocation of Grants-in-Aid for 1989-90



NRS 396.540 provides for tuition waivers for "students from

other states and foreign countries, not to exceed a number

equal to 3% of the total matriculated enrollment of students

for the past preceding Fall semester." Board policy pro-

vides for similar grants-in-aid for the same number of stu-

dents for the payment of in-state registration fees.



Based on enrollment figures for Fall 1988, the officers

request the following allocation of grants-in-aid for Fall

1989-90:

In-State Out-of-State

UNR

Athletics 100 100

Music 40 25

Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the Grants-in-Aid for

1989-90. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.



22. Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee



A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Commit-

tee meeting, held February 23, 1989, were made by Regent

Carolyn M. Sparks.



(1) Approved the College of Human and Community Sciences at

UNR, as contained in Ref. AA-6, filed in the Regents

Office.



This College will integrate existing programs at the

University of Nevada-Reno which have a common focus on

human and community resource development, and consoli-

date them into one academic unit. The College will

provide a framework for the development of community-

centered multi-disciplinary teaching and research

programs.



The College will consist of the reorganization of De-

partments, programs and centers previously located in

the School of Home Economics, College of Arts and Sci-

ence, School of Medicine, College of Education, College

of Agriculture and the Office of Student Services. All

degrees and majors are currently offered with the ex-

ception of the MS in Nutrition. The addition of a

Center for Integrated Studies is planned as a mechanism

for supporting interdisciplinary efforts.



Reformulation of existing units offers a cost effective

means to establish a collective sense of mission and a

common administrative structure. Additional resources

required to implement this proposal are projected at

$266,774 for the first year of operation increasing to

$1,186,569 by the fourth year. These resources will be

provided through UNR, the Cooperative Extension Serv-

ice, and the Agricultural Experiment Station. A pro-

jected enrollment of 749.2 FTE students will justify

the additional instructional positions requested.



President Crowley gave an overview of the process in

which this program for a new College has materialized.

Dr. Dennis Brown, Vice President for Academic Affairs,

stated that it was a Campus process which began at the

grassroots. It was proposed by the faculty, reviewed

and redefined by faculty committees, discussed with

alumnus and students, and evaluated by three home

economic consultants.



Dr. Elwood Miller, Associate Dean of the College of

Agriculture, indicated that he represented the faculty

and has worked with the various disciplines for over a

year in compiling this program for a new College. He

confirmed that it would be a major change, but also it

was a major advance for UNR. It would cause a re-

structuring/reorganizing of several Departments.



Mr. Richard Bitterman, Assistant Director of Coopera-

tive Extension, spoke in favor of the new College. He

relayed some of the positive effects from the point of

view of the 17 county officers who serve the rural

areas in Nevada. With more people relocating in the

rural areas, there is a need for "trained" personnel

to deal with human problems. The new College would

provide new talent for these areas. He stated that he

was personally excited about the interdisciplinary

approach and the deep association with the new College.



Maie Nygren, Jimi Frances, Nancy Ann Carstenson,

Patricia Tripple and Janet Sayer spoke in opposition

to the establishment of the new College of Human and

Community Sciences. Maie Nygren, Patricie Tripple and

Janet Sayer's written testimony are filed in the

Regents Office. Ms. Frances, Home Economic Senior,

stated that she was concerned about the holistic

concept and disciplinary perspective in relation to

Nevadans. Ms. Carstenson, Home Economic reentry

student, stated that the students were not informed

about this change.



President Crowley stated that he was clearly aware that

substantial change/reorganization causes stress and

fear. These characteristics are not intended, but are

normal reactions to change. He sympathized with the

persons in opposition and throughout the process has

accepted constructive criticism. However, he did

clarify some of the misinformed statements which were

given in the morning's testimony.



Dr. Eva Essa, Acting Dean of School of Home Economics,

spoke in support of the new College. She indicated

that President Crowley had been reasonable and flexible

in working with the home economic faculty in their

efforts to explore all possibilities for this proposal.



She explained the process in which the faculty deter-

mined their own proposal. A majority of the faculty

indicated that this proposal would strengthen their

programs. The faculty were requested to partake in a

vote on the proposal and it was voted in favor by a

12-3 majority vote. She stated that to her knowledge

faculty, students and alumnus were not intimidated by

this new proposal and they indicated to her their

support.



Dr. Jeanne Peters, Chapter President of Nevada Home

Economics Association, indicated that earlier remarks

regarding the opposition by the NHEA were not state-

ments represented by the whole association. As a

member, she was not made aware of this opposition.



Dr. Robert Mead, UNR Faculty Senate Chairman, stated

that the Faculty Senate had been involved in the proc-

ess and had established a committee to monitor the

planning and to be certain that home economics faculty

were involved in the process. Two additional commit-

tees were established to deal with budget and curricu-

lum. He indicated that this proposal is clearly a

faculty proposal.



Dr. Barbara Thornton, Associate Professor of Social and

Health Resources, expressed her excitement of the in-

terdisciplinary collaboration. This proposal will give

strength to the current interdisciplinary programs at

UNR. The first informal discussions began in 1979,

and she stated that now is the time for establishing

this approach. She proceeded to reiterate the pro-

cedures taken in establishing this new College. She

expressed her concerns regarding the appointment of

the Dean by stating that a person who is committed to

interdisciplinary programs and is a universal leader

would be needed to fill that position.



Two alumnus, Jackie Riley and Janet Usinger, spoke in

support of the College of Human and Community Sciences.



The Committee allowed time for rebuttal to the issue.

Ms. Nygren stated that she was not opposed to the new

College, but opposed to the way the School of Home

Economics was being treated within the new College.

Dr. Tripple agreed with Ms. Nygren and added that the

School of Home Economics will be short-changed because

it won't have an integrative holistic approach.



Upon questioning by Dr. Eardley on accreditation,

Dr. Brown indicated that accreditation was primarily

based on quality programs.



President Crowley stated that the concerns of those in

opposition to the new College are genuine concerns and

he respected these concerns. However, he emphasized

that the new College is a "holistic" College and an

integrated College. He has deep, abiding concerns with

the College, not only from the home economic viewpoint,

but from nutrition, recreation, fitness and gerontol-

ogy. He stated that he has served UNR for 24 years

and has never seen such a "grassroots" movement towards

a proposal such as this. If the proposal is approved,

it will be very beneficial not only to the students

and faculty, but to all Nevadans. It will be a qual-

ity program.



Vice Chancellor Fox informed the Committee that the

State Department of Education has expressed a continu-

ance of certification for home economic teachers if

the College of Human and Community Sciences is ap-

proved.



Mrs. Sparks clarified that Home Economic students were in-

volved from the beginning of the process to move towards

an new College. She agreed with Senator Rawson's statement

that we need to educate people in our own state and not go

out-of-state.



(2) Approved the AAS degree in Physical Therapist Assisting

at CCCC, as contained in Ref. AA-1, filed in the Re-

gents Office.



This program will be the only one of its kind in Ne-

vada. Graduates will be trained to provide services

in the care and treatment of patients under the direc-

tion of a physical therapist. The planned date of

implementation is Fall 1989.



The shortage of trained individuals has resulted in the

need to recruit outside of the State. In addition to

the boom in population, the number of senior citizens

in southern Nevada who require physical therapy serv-

ices is large. Accreditation of the program will be

sought by the American Physical Therapy Association,

as only graduates of an accredited program are eligible

for licensure in Nevada. Admission to the 5-semester

program will be limited, with enrollment projected to

be 30 FTE students by the 4th year.



Upon questioning, Dr. Alison Mc Pherson replied that

UNR is reviewing course outlines for articulation

purposes.



Mrs. Gallagher stated that this program was an excel-

lent example of the Regents' push for cooperation and

commended those involved in the program.



(3) Approved the AAS degree in Agribusiness Sales and

Service at NNCC, as contained in Ref. AA-2, filed in

the Regents Office.



This program would augment an existing agriculture/

business program currently designed for transfer stu-

dents. Students who do not wish to pursue a 4-year

degree, but who desire the necessary preparation for a

career in the agriculture business field would be serv-

ed by this degree.



This program will articulate with high school Vocation-

al-Agriculture courses, and fulfill a need in local and

Nevada agribusinesses such as fertilizer and chemical

sales and nurseries for trained individuals.



The existing Agriculture program was reviewed in 1985

and a number of improvements have been made to the

program. No additional funds, facilities or equipment

are needed to implement this degree.



(4) Approved the AAS degree in Mill Maintenance Technology

at NNCC, as contained in Ref. AA-3, filed in the

Regents Office.



This program is currently offered in contract with the

Newmont Gold Company to train Newmont employees. It

will expand to a public program, providing the oppor-

tunity for training mill mechanics in other area mines.



The mining boom in northeastern Nevada has resulted in

a demand for trained employees, many of which are

currently being brought in from out-of-state. The

Northern Nevada Community College 1988-91 master plan

calls for increased responsiveness to the educational

needs of this industry. It is projected that 200 ad-

ditional mill mechanics will be needed in the next 4

years.



Estimated enrollment will be 30 FTE. A combination of

pledges from area mining companies and College instruc-

tional and operating funds will be used initially.

Two instructors will be requested in 1991.



Mrs. Whitley questioned if this program would be open

to the public, and Dr. Charles Greenhaw, Dean of

Instruction, replied that it would be open.



Mrs. Gallagher commended Dr. Greenhaw for his work in

establishing this program at NNCC.



(5) Approved the AAS degree in Environmental Control Tech-

nologies at TMCC, as contained in Ref. AA-4, filed in

the Regents Office.



This proposal will expand the current certificate

program in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning to a 2-

year program. The planned date of implementation is

Fall 1989.



Projections by the Nevada Employment Security Depart-

ment indicate a need for 230 technicians in the Reno

area by 1991. In addition, there is strong support

for this program by local industry and government.

Review of the certificate program indicates that it

has strong relevance to the requirements of industry,

and a large percentage of graduates are presently

employed in the industry. It is estimated that 100

students will be enrolled by the 4th year of the

program.



(6) Information Only - President Gwaltney has announced an

intended change to the title of the Mechanical Drafting

degrees at Truckee Meadows Community College to Engi-

neering Drafting.



In the past, the Mechanical Drafting title described

drawing mainly machine parts and structures. The

present emphasis in the drafting programs encompasses

Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical and Civil Engi-

ineering drawings. This trend will continue to grow

as the program becomes more involved in Computer-Aided

Design and the change in title would indicate the

breadth of the program.



(7) Approved the establishment of a Department of Nutrition

and an MS degree in Nutrition at UNR, as contained in

Ref. AA-7, filed in the Regents Office.



This Department will initially be developed between the

new College of Human and Community Services and the

College of Agriculture. The MS in Nutrition will build

upon an existing baccalaureate level degree.



In order to support the rapid developments and body of

advancing knowledge in the area of nutrition, it can no

longer be considered a subspeciality of a particular

discipline. Currently there are 3 nutrition programs

at UNR located in the School of Home Economics, College

of Agriculture and School of Medicine. Integration of

the 3 elements will be an ultimate goal.



Course work for the MS degree is currently in place.

Enrollment is projected to reach 20-30 students by the

4th year of the program. 2 current faculty positions

and other support personnel currently residing in the

College of Home Economics will be reassigned to the new

Department. Existing laboratory and office space is

available in the Home Economics building.



(8) Approved the MA with a major in teaching English as a

second language at UNR, as contained in Ref. AA-8,

filed in the Regents Office.



This inter-disciplinary program will address a growing

need for preparation of teachers of both children and

adults who are limited in English proficiency.



The Departments of Curriculum and Instruction, English

and the Intensive English Language Center would consol-

idate and streamline existing courses and resources in

order to offer this program. No new State funds would

be required during the 1st 2 years. However, enroll-

ment projections indicate 100 students may be enrolled

by the 4th year, which would necessitate an additional

FTE faculty position in the 3rd year of the program.



(9) Approved the Center for Precious Metals at UNR, as

contained in Ref. AA-9, filed in the Regents Office.



This Center, to be located at the Mackay School of

Mines, will provide an opportunity for faculty to

conduct research on precious metal processing and

mining and environmental studies.



The growing mining industry in Nevada can benefit from

improvements in metallurgical recovery and processing.



New or improved technologies can result in greater

quantities of gold and silver becoming available, and

extension of the life of a mine. No funding will be

requested, as financial support will be provided

through contractual research. Existing analytic

facilities are excellent and state of the art equipment

is available. A Director will administer the center

and report to the Dean of the School of Mines.



It was stated that this center will provide for world

class programs and faculty which will enhance UNR.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Academic Affairs Committee. Mrs. Gallagher seconded.

Motion carried.



23. Report and Recommendations of the Audit Committee



A report and recommendations of the Audit Committee meeting,

held February 23, 1989, were made by Regent Carolyn M.

Sparks, Chairman.



(1) Approved the UNR Financial Statement. Mr. John Surina

of Deloitte, Haskins and Sells, UNS independent audit-

ing firm, presented the report on the June 30, 1988

UNR Financial Statement. He stated that the UNR fi-

nancial statement was in conformity with generally ac-

cepted accounting principles with a clean opinion for

the audit report.



The Financial Statement was distributed at the meeting

and is filed in the Regents Office.



(2) Approved the UNR Constructive Service Letter. John

Surina of Deloitte, Haskins and Sells, UNS independent

auditing firm, presented the report on the June 30,

1988 UNR Constructive Service Letter. He discussed

weaknesses in bookstore disbursements and compensated

absences for which corrective action might be taken,

but stated these are not major. Internal Audit Direc-

tor Sandi Cardinal reported that changes are being

made in these areas.



The Constructive Service Letter was distributed at the

meeting and is filed in the Regents Office.



(3) Approved the UNLV Financial Statement. John Surina

of Deloitte, Haskins and Sells, UNS independent audit-

ing firm, presented the report on the June 30, 1988

UNLV Financial Statement. He stated that the UNLV

financial statement was in conformity with generally

accepted accounting principles with a clean opinion

for the audit report.



The Financial Statement was distributed at the meeting

and is filed in the Regents Office.



(4) Approved the UNLV Constructive Service Letter. Mr.

John Surina of Deloitte, Haskins and Sells, UNS inde-

pendent auditing firm, presented the report on the

June 30, 1988 UNLV Constructive Service Letter.



The Constructive Service Letter was distributed at

the meeting and is filed in the Regents Office.

26. Report and Recommendations of the Legislative Liaison

Committee



A report and recommendations of the Legislative Liaison Com-

mittee meeting, held February 23, 1989, were made by Regent

Daniel Klaich, Chairman.



Mr. Klaich made the following statement:



I would like to start the meeting this morning harken-

ing back to my often acclaimed style of former Chairman

of the Board by paying no particular attention to the

agenda and I would like to talk with the Presidents,

with the members of the Board, about what I perceive

to be our abysmal performance at Assembly Ways and Means

last week. We have Senate Financing coming up in one

more week.



In criticizing the presentation of the University of

Nevada System, I would like to share the blame for the

performance because I was a representative of this Board

at that meeting. In criticizing the performance of the

University of Nevada System, I would like to specifical-

ly exempt from any criticism the performance of the Vice

Chancellor for Finance, Ron Sparks, who performed as he

usually does and saved our bacon on a number of occa-

sions.



My comments are personal and I have toned down my com-

ments from my feelings when I left the meetings last

week, because I had no particular desire to embarrass

anyone in a public meeting, including myself. But I

would like to share with, most importantly, the 7 of

you (Presidents), some of my feelings about the legis-

lative process committee hearings and how you win and

how you lose, and, in my opinion, how we did last week.



I feel that hearings before money committees are, in a

large part, command performances by the University of

Nevada System, and other agencies, whereby we spread our

requests before those particular committees. They are

not particularly battlefields where we win anything. In

my years before the Legislature I have rarely seen us go

before a committee, present anything novel, and come out

with the brass ring on any particular item. We spread

our requests, we make our needs known, and there are

times for negotiations that are intense and that are

give and take that are typically not in these first

open public meetings. It seems to me that dashing into

these public meetings and making spontaneous requests

that might be framed in the form of victory or loss for

a particular item is not going to get anybody anywhere.



Secondly, I think that in the context of "do we win" or

"do we lose" at these hearings, likely we are there to

hold our own. In the same context (I appreciate this

is a bit repetitive) we run the risk at these meetings

largely of only losing, and we lose in my opinion by

confusing the members of those committees.



We construct a budget over a two-year period, and over

a two-year period we scrupulously set and sift through

priorities. After we set those priorities, and after

the Board of Regents votes on them ad nauseam, we see

the Governor's budget and we understand the extent to

which the Governor agrees or disagrees with our pri-

orities. That is a political decision on his part.

When we have seen the Governor's budget there are addi-

tional meetings at the University community which you

gentlemen represent. The differences between the Gov-

ernor's budget and the University of Nevada System

budget in the context of our priorities is bridged.

You gentlemen set forth your priorities in consultation

with the Board and the Chancellor's staff for responding

to the executive budget and all of that was done. Now,

when we go to these money committees, and we start talk-

ing about different things than those priorities, all

these gentlemen do is come way scratching their heads

and wonder what the hell we want.



Now, the last thing that I would like to say is that if

we don't go to those committees with a united front of

the Board of Regents, our central staff and you 7 Presi-

dents, then we have a serious problem. If each of you

doesn't think that you can fall out of the boat and have

complete confidence that any one of the other guys in

the boat is going to throw you a lifeline and pull you

back in, we have serious problems. If you 7 men don't

have absolute trust in staying on board and fighting for

the System priorities, we have serious problems. And I

think that we have serious problems| I think that you

gentlemen better look at each other and better discuss

the priorities and better understand where we are going

before Senate Finance next week.



One of the problems of being on a Board for any period

of time, as I have, is that you become focused in your

opinions. Some things start to be more important to you

than others. It is probably the best reason for a Re-

gent to get off a Board because he or she becomes focus-

ed to the extent that you don't become a good broad-

based Regent. I have become extremely focused on this

budget and this Legislative Session. I think that the

budget was properly constructed, and I think that it

represented important priorities of the University of

Nevada System and the State of Nevada. The foundation

of the budget and our hearings are found in our requests

for enhancements to the formulas and our striving for

greater raises for our faculty. If we abandon those for

sugar plums and personal items we are doing a serious

disservice, in my opinion, to this Board, and this Sys-

tem, and this State, and the process that we have so

painstakingly worked through over the past 2 years. Now

that is the end of my sermon and I would entertain any

questions of the Presidents or the members of the Board.

If not, it may be appropriate to move on at this point.



Mrs. Gallagher stated that, in her opinion, it appeared

testimony didn't go too well before the Assembly Ways and

Means Committee. She encouraged the Presidents to repair

any perceived damage immediately. She stated that word on

the street is that the Presidents and the Regents are in

disarray, that they are not together, that they do not want

the same things. She stated that is a disastrous situation

and urged that it cannot continue if UNS is to be successful

at the Legislature this Session. UNS cannot be perceived in

that way. She strongly encouraged everyone to get his/her

act together before appearing before Senate Finance, because

if UNS fails there, we will spend until next June trying to

pick up the pieces, and many will be too shattered to pick

up.



(1) Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks provided a legislative up-

date and a schedule of upcoming hearings. He informed

the Committee that AJR 34 and AB 122 have been approved

by the Assembly, and will be heard on February 28 by

the Senate Taxation Committee. The HECC bill draft re-

quest has not appeared, but will be introduced soon.



(2) The Board of Regents reaffirmed its support for passage

of AJR 34, an amendment to the State Constitution that

would raise the debt limit from 1 percent (1%) to 2

percent (2%) of the State's assessed value to allow ad-

ditional bonding capacity to finance capital construc-

tion. The Governor's budget includes funding for 3

UNS projects contingent upon voter approval of AJE 34

during a special election scheduled May 2. Mr. Klaich

directed the Chancellor's staff to fund and staff a

campaign to promote passage of the measure.



Mrs. June Whitley suggested exploring whether other

agencies and groups may wish to work to support the

passage of this constitutional amendment for the State

of Nevada.



(3) Mr. Steve Evenson, CSUN President, requested support

for the campaign in which CSUN is actively seeking to

eliminate State sales tax in Campus bookstores. He

estimated $260,000 per year in taxes on books benefit

the State General Fund. Mrs. Sparks stated that the

Board should support this, but only if the Legislature

does not deduct this amount from the UNS budgets.

Chairman Klaich agreed with Mrs. Sparks' concerns and

felt it was out of sync with the Board of Regents'

established priorities, which should be funded first.



Another request was made of the Board of Regents to

consider support of legislation to change State law

affecting admittance of foreign-trained physicians in

UNS medical programs. After hearing background

information on UNS policy, and State and federal laws

from Dean Robert Daugherty, Dr. Thomas Cinque and Dr.

Thomas Scully, the Committee reaffirmed support of

current practice.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Legislative Liaison Committee. Mrs. Sparks seconded.

Motion carried.



27. Approved to Sublease and Reassign a Mining Lease, UNR



Approved a sublease and to reassign a mining lease for UNR.

On August 10, 1979, UNR entered into an agreement whereby

the Mammoth #3 mining claim in Tonopah was leased to a

Mr. Everett Berg, dba Falcon Exploration Company. The 20-

year lease agreement contains an option to obtain a 20-year

extension. On June 12, 1986, the Board assigned the lease

to the Tonopah Divide Mining Company.



Tonopah Divide is requesting approval to sublease to Mine

Developers, Inc. (MDI) of Reno, and MDI is requesting ap-

proval to assign the sublease to American Gold Resources

Corporation of Houston, Texas. MDI has agreed to increase

minimum annual royalty payment from $275 to $500, against

5% of net smelter returns.



The College of Agriculture and the School of Mines support

the reassignment.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of a sublease and to reassign

a mining lease for UNR. Dr. Hammargren seconded. Motion

carried.



28. Approved the Renewal of a Lease, UNR



Approved to renew an existing agreement for real property

between the UNS Board of Regents/UNR College of Agriculture

and Churchill County ASC Committee. The Churchill County

Agricultural Service Center Committee will renew its lease

of office and storage space at 111 Sheckler Road, Fallon.

This lease covers the period from October 1, 1988 through

September 30, 1989 and will pay UNR/College of Agriculture

$37,782.05 for the space.



Dr. Hammargren moved approval to renew a lease at UNR. Mr.

Klaich seconded. Motion carried.



29. Approved the Naming of a Building, DRI



Approved the naming of the DRI building in the Dandini Re-

search Park the "George Burke Maxey Building".



The Dandini Research Park was named in honor of Dr. Alex-

sandro Dandini who played a major role in the acquisition

of that land for use by DRI. Dandini Boulevard was simi-

larly named. The DRI building at Dandini Research Park was

dedicated in 1981 but has never been formally named. Dr.

Maxey, one of the original members of the DRI faculty and

Executive Director of the Water Resources Center at the

time of his death in 1977, played a significant role in

the identification and acquisition of Dandini Research

Park property.



Mr. Klaich moved approval to name the George Burke Maxey

building at DRI. Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.



30. New Business



Mr. Klaich expressed his gratitude to President Calabro and

his staff for their hospitality in hosting the Board of Re-

gents meeting.



Mr. Klaich stated that he will be glad to have Chancellor

Mark Dawson back from his illness.



President Crowley announced that he was celebrating his llth

year as UNR President. The Board congratulated him.



The meeting adjourned at 2:20 P.M.
