5. Travis Estate

Letter of February 5, 1959 from the Attorney for the Travis
Estate informed the University that Trust No. 2 under Mr.
Travis' Will has terminated due to the death of Mr. Travis'
sister, Mrs. Hannah Travis Fulton. The principal of this
trust is approximately $750,000 and during Mrs. Fulton's
lifetime all of the net income from the trust was required
to be paid to her. The University of Nevada now becomes
entitled to 30% of the principal of the trust. President
Armstrong then read a letter dated February 6, 1959 from
the Attorney, which asked whether the University of Nevada
desired to have the securities in the trust sold and the
cash distributed or to receive its share of the securities
in kind.

Mr. Hayden reported that he has reviewed the securities and
considered them top-grade. He and President Armstrong rec-
ommended that the Trustees of the Travis Trust be informed
that the University prefers to receive its shares of the
trust in securities.

Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the Administration proceed as rapidly as
possible to contact the Attorney General for an opinion,
and to take whatever action might be desirable, to deter-
mine if matching funds are still available for the Travis
Student building.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
unanimously that the President be authorized to notify the
Trustees of the Travis Estate that the University desires
its share of the estate in securities, as listed.

6. Building Program

(a) Housing and Home Finance Agency Projects

President Armstrong reported that the University is
working with the HHFA on certain aspects of the loan
request for the 3 building projects. With the as-
sistance of the office of the Attorney General and
HHFA, an agreement has now been completed which satis-
fies all the remaining conditions set up by HHFA to
enable the University to go to bid. President Arm-
strong read the agreement as follows and recommended
approval:

AGREEMENT

AGREEMENT made and entered the 7th day of March, 1959,
by and between the UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA, acting through
its Board of Regents, hereinafter referred to as UNI-
VERSITY, and the NEVADA STATE PLANNING BOARD, herein-
after referred to as BOARD.

WITNESSETH:

The parties hereto mutually agree that the provisions
herein contemplate the following matters:

1. The planning, design and construction of certain
buildings for and on behalf of UNIVERSITY.

2. The borrowing of funds for said project from Hous-
ing and Home Finance Agency, which loan shall be
amortized and satisfied through issuance, payment
and retirement of Revenue Certificates by UNIVER-
SITY, as borrower.

3. A requirement of Housing and Home Finance Agency,
among others, making the grant of said loan con-
ditional upon UNIVERSITY being invested, as the
responsible principal party, with control and
supervision over the design and construction of
said building projects.

4. A further requirement of Housing and Home Finance
Agency that the Contract Bond (to be executed in
connection with performance and completion of work
on said building projects) name UNIVERSITY as
principal party and BOARD, as its interest may
appear, agreeable and acceptable to both of the
parties herein.

5. The following agreements executed by BOARD for
architectural services in connection with said
building projects:

(a) With Vhay & Grow (now known as Vhay Associ-
ates), dated December 16, 1957;

(b) With Frank W. Green, dated December 16, 1957;

(c) With Ferris & Erskine, dated May 31, 1958.

6. The powers invested in BOARD under and pursuant to
Chapter 360, Section 2.5, Nevada Statutes 1957, and
NRS 341, as applicable with respect to supervision
and control of construction of said building proj-
ects.

7. Agreement reached by the parties with respect to
the plans and specifications pertaining to said
building projects, already approved by Housing
and Home Finance Agency.

8. Agreement by the parties that, in the public in-
terest, the approval and grant of the involved loan
for said building projects, and the commencement
and completion of same at the earliest date pos-
sible, is a matter of great public importance.

NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto mutually agree as
follows:

A. That UNIVERSITY, as responsible principal party,
designates BOARD as its representative to exact
and secure compliance by the Architects, pursuant
to their respective agreements, as listed and
indicated in paragraph "5" above, with all require-
ments of UNIVERSITY and Housing and Home Finance
Agency in connection with said building projects.

B. BOARD shall certify to UNIVERSITY the satisfactory
performance and completion of all construction work
on said building projects under the supervision and
direction of said Architects, in conformity and
compliance with plans, specifications and other re-
quirements of the aforementioned Loan Agreement No.
H-602-608, executed by and between UNIVERSITY,
borrower and responsible principal party, and
Housing and Home Finance Agency.

C. Such certifications by BOARD of the satisfactory
performance and completion of construction work
in connection with said building projects, in
conformity and compliance with all UNIVERSITY and
Housing and Home Finance Agency requirements, shall
constitute a sufficient basis and authority for
University to disburse Housing and Home Finance
Agency loan funds in payment of completed construc-
tion work, as so certified by BOARD. It is under-
stood that such construction payments must also be
approved by Housing and Home Finance Agency.

D. BOARD agrees that UNIVERSITY, as the responsible
principal party herein, shall retain complete and
exclusive control over, and final authority in
connection with, the use and disbursement of loan
monies relating to said construction projects,
as made available, and in accordance with Loan
Agreement No. H-602-608, executed by and between

quired by Chapter 360, Section 2.5, Nevada Statutes

tory performance and completion of all construction

conformity with all UNIVERSITY and Housing and Home
Finance Agency requirements, as set forth and con-
tained in plans, specifications and Loan Agreement
No. H-602-608, pertaining to said building proj-
ects.

F. Both parties hereto mutually agree that all of the
provisions herein contained are restricted, limited
and solely applicable to the building projects

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties herein, each acting by
and through their respective duly authorized officials,
have set their hands and subscribed their signatures,
the date and year first above mentioned.

UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA NEVADA STATE PLANNING BOARD
By By
/s/ A. C. Grant /s/ C. V. Isbell
Chairman, Board of Regents Chairman

Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Arnold, car-
ried unanimously that the agreement be approved and
that the Chairman be authorized to sign on behalf of
the Board of Regents.

Mr. Hayden explained the details of interim financing
for these HHFA projects. Financing will have to be
provided until buildings are approximately 80% com-
plete. Mr. Hayden had contacted all local banks and
the interim finance loan can be secured at 2 7/8%.
However, only one local bank, the First National Bank
of Nevada, is able to handle the entire loan. For
this reason, Mr. Hayden and President Armstrong recom-
mended that the loan be secured through that bank.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, car-
ried unanimously that the Comptroller be authorized
to proceed to negotiate a loan through the First
National Bank of Nevada for interim financing of the
building projects.

(b) Las Vegas Sewer

Mr. Isbell entered the meeting to represent the State
Planning Board, and discussed the sewer problems in Las
Vegas. When the second building is completed, present
sewer facilities will be inadequate. He suggested that
request should be made by the University for an appro-
priation of $100,000 to finance the construction of a
7200-foot sewer line from the Campus to the nearest
facility within the area. This will enable the sewer
district to annex the property owned by the University
and by nearby housing projects. The money received
from the additional users will revert to the State
General Fund until the cost of construction has been
paid off. President Armstrong asked that authoriza-
tion be granted for signing any papers in connection
with the sewer project.

Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, car-
ried unanimously that either the Chairman or the
Vice Chairman of the Board be authorized to sign con-
tracts and other necessary papers to implement the
sewer project in Las Vegas.

(c) Cornerstone - Las Vegas Building

The laying of the cornerstone for the 2nd building on
the Las Vegas Campus has been tentatively set by the
Masonic Lodge for April 26, at 1:30 P.M. President
Armstrong has been invited to deliver the oration, and
Dr. Wood has been placed in charge of materials for
the receptacle to be placed in the cornerstone. Mr.
Grant appointed Mr. Elwell to take charge of activi-
ties for the Regents.

Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, car-
ried unanimously that the date of April 26 be approved
and the Masonic Lodge so notified.

(d) Names for University Building

Dr. Anderson opened a discussion on names for Uni-
versity buildings, and suggested that a policy be set
so that new buildings would be appropriately designated
rather than having names attached to them without
official sanction. In this discussion, Dr. Anderson
suggested that consideration be given to honoring past
Presidents of the University, donors, outstanding in-
dividuals in the University or in the State by naming
buildings after them.

Motion by Dr. Anderson was seconded by Mr. Elwell that
(a) the first classroom building in Las Vegas be named
for Maude Frazier for her distinguished service to
education and in the State Legislature, that (b) the
second classroom building in Las Vegas be named for
the present Chairman of the Board of Regents, and that
(c) the old Agricultural building on the Reno Campus
be called the "Peter Frandsen Humanities Building".

Mr. Crumley expressed his opinion that a general policy
should be studied by a committee of the Board of Re-
gents and recommended to the Board for adoption before
any names are decided upon. In the discussion which
followed, the consensus was that the entire matter of
naming buildings should receive careful consideration.
Dr. Anderson withdrew sections (b) and (c) of his mo-
tion, but asked that a vote be taken on section (a)
in view of Miss Frazier's age and her recent accident.

The vote was unanimous that section (a) of the motion
be approved, that the first building on the Las Vegas
Campus be named for Maude Frazier, the wording to be
determined later in conference with Miss Frazier.

16. Alumni Association

Mr. John Sala, Executive Director of the Alumni Association,
and Mr. Gene Mc Kenna, President, were invited into the
meeting to report on and discuss the activities of the
Alumni Association. Mr. Sala indicated the desire of the
Alumni Association to work closely with the University
Administration to further the effectiveness of the Uni-
versity.

At present, the Association is conducting a number of events
to try to interpret the University to former students and
graduates throughout the State. Effort is being made to
build the Alumni Association membership. The job placement
program is conducted in conjunction with the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs, and the program has shown good results. Mr.
Mc Kenna spoke of the desire of the Association to cooperate
with the University and to learn more of its operation and
needs. In this line, he said that members of the University
faculty and Administration have been invited to speak to
the Executive Committee.

standing at the State Legislature about the relationship
between the University and the Alumni Association, and he

prove the appropriation for funds for support of the Alumni
Association now under consideration by the Legislature, (3)
the Board of Regents does not disapprove legislation now

ation from the supervision of the Board of Regents of the
University.

The Secretary was instructed to send letters to the Speaker
of the House, the President of the Senate, Chairman of the
Education Committees, Chairman of the Ways and Means Com-
mittee, and the Chairman of the Finance Committee, trans-
mitting the above information.

entire legislative program on the agenda of the last meet-
ing of the Board, and decided to present a bill providing
for an appropriation of $550,000 for the 3rd building for
the Las Vegas Campus. The Legislative Committee felt that
the University could not, without unncessary risk, delay

of the accreditation report.

Office of the President

Faculty Organization Plan March 11, 1959

The Board of Regents on March 7, 1959 approved, as indicated be-
low, certain revisions of the 1925 Regulations of the University
of Nevada, and approved the proposed Organization Plan for the
Faculty of the University of Nevada, with the following proviso:

Nothing in the document hereby approved shall be construed as
an abrogation in any way of the responsibility or power vest-
ed in the Board of Regents by the Constitution or laws of the
State of Nevada, nor does it limit the right of the Board to
delegate full administrative authority to the President of
the University. The authority hereby delegated to the Uni-
versity Faculty and the several College faculties is subject
always to the ultimate authority of the Board of Regents, as
established and empowered by the Constitution and laws of the
State of Nevada.

* * * * * * * * *

I. The 1925 Regulations of the University of Nevada are hereby
revised as follows:

Chapters II and VI of the 1925 Regulations (entitled "The
Faculties" and "The University Faculty") are repealed and
the following single Chapter substituted:

CHAPTER II
The University Faculty

Section 1. The University Faculty shall consist of all
persons holding professional positions authorized by the
Board of Regents.

Section 2. The University Faculty shall have authority in
matters of general University educational policy, including
faculty welfare, except where such authority may be retained
by the Board of Regents or specifically delegated elsewhere
by the President or the Board of Regents. It shall estab-
lish rules under which it may act. It may provide for the
creation of jurisdictional segments in the event that such
creation is desired. It shall review any action of a Col-
lege faculty that affects general University educational
policy. An action of the University Faculty that would
alter established University educational policy becomes
final only upon approval by the Board of Regents, but be-
comes provisionally operative upon approval by the Presi-
dent.

Chapter IV (entitled "The Vice President or Acting Presi-
dent") is revised to read as follows:

CHAPTER IV
The Academic Vice President

Section 1. In the absence of the President or in case of
his inability to act, the Academic Vice President shall
perform his functions.

Section 2. The duties of the Academic Vice President are
such as may be assigned to him by the President, primarily
in matters pertaining to personnel and academic programs.

Chapter V (entitled "Deans") is revised to read as follows:

CHAPTER V
Academic Deans

Section 1. The Dean of a College shall be the administra-
tive and executive officer of that College, the Chairman of
its faculty, and ex-officio a member of all of its commit-
tees. The Dean shall be directly responsible to the Presi-
dent of the University for the execution of University
policy and established rules within his particular College.

Chapter VII (entitled "College Faculties") is renumbered and
revised to read as follows:

Section 1. Each of the separate Colleges of the University
of Nevada, including Divisions of equivalent administrative
status, shall have its own faculty consisting of those mem-
bers of the University Faculty who are assigned to that
College for their major duties.

Section 2. The faculty of each College shall have authority
in all matters of internal educational policy of that Col-
lege except where such authority may be retained by the
Board of Regents or specifically delegated elsewhere by the
President or the Board of Regents. It shall establish rules
under which it may act, formulate and pass upon the comple-
tion of the courses of study and the entrance and graduation
requirements of that College, and approve candidates for
graduation from curricula directed by that College. An ac-
tion of a College faculty that would alter established
policy of that College becomes final upon approval by the
Board of Regents, but becomes provisionally operative upon
approval by the President. All actions of a College faculty
that may require the consideration of the University Faculty
shall be presented to that body by the Dean of that College
or his designate. The faculty of a College shall not have
authority to take away from a study any University privilege
nor to encroach upon the administrative duties of the Dean.

A new Chapter VII is added, as follows:

CHAPTER VII
The Academic Deans Committee

Section 1. A committee consisting of all the Academic Deans
of the University, under the Chairmanship of the Academic
Vice President, shall serve as a coordinating administra-
tive committee on academic matters, including personnel and
programs, advisory to the President.

II. The following Organization Plan for the Faculty of the Uni-
versity of Nevada is hereby approved, subject to review by
the Board of Regents at the end of one year of operation:

1. PREAMBLE

The Faculty of the University of Nevada, as defined in
Chapter II, Section 1 of the Regulations of the Uni-
versity, in accordance with the authority vested in it
by the Board of Regents in Chapter II, Section 2 of the
Regulations of the University, organizes itself to per-
form its functions as follows:

2. SEGMENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY FACULTY

It is recognized that many kinds of business may come
before the University Faculty. The University Council
(Sec. 3) will be responsible for referring questions
which do not concern the entire University Faculty to
appropriate segments thereof. These segments shall
follow the rules of the University Faculty if they
are applicable, and the University Council shall pre-
scribe whatever additional rules or procedures are
necessary. Since much University business is in con-
nection with resident instruction, we define here the
Academic Faculty. The Council may create similar seg-
ments as are dictated by the course of events.

2.1 The Academic Faculty shall consist of those members of
the University Faculty whose regularly assigned duties
include resident instruction or research or super-
vision thereof.

3. THE UNIVERSITY COUNCIL

3.1 Membership

The University Council shall consist of 3 categories of
members: those without vote, those appointed and those
elected. The President of the University, or in his
absence the Vice President, shall be members without
vote. The President shall appoint 2 Academic Deans as
voting members. The elected members shall consist of
representatives elected by each of the College facul-
ties and by those who are not attached to any College.
The number of representatives of each of these major
Divisions is determined as follows:

Number of Members of the Number of
Division Representatives

1 - 9 1
10 - 29 2
30 - 59 3

Additional representatives shall be allowed to larger
Divisions at the rate of 1 for each 30 members or frac-
tion thereof above 59.

3.2 Term of Office of Members

Except as specifically provided for elsewhere, each
elected representative shall serve for 2 years from
July 1 following his election and shall not be eli-
gible to serve for 1 year following expiration of his
term. Appointed members shall be appointed annually
and shall serve for no more than 2 consecutive terms.

3.3 The first election shall be administered by the Organ-
ization Committee of the Faculty, and thereafter the
University Council shall establish election procedures
consistent with the following principles: (1) the
rules concerning membership (See 3.1) shall be ob-
served; (2) terms shall be staggered so that an equal
number will expire at each election insofar as is pos-
sible; and (3) nominations and elections shall be by
secret ballot. The University Council shall also
provide a method consistent with the above principles
for the filling of vacancies in the event that a Coun-
cil member is permanently or temporarily unable to
serve.

3.4 Officers

The Council shall elect from among its members a Chair-
man and a Vice Chairman who shall both serve for 1 year
and shall not be eligible to succeed themselves. The
Council shall select a Secretary from among its mem-
bers who shall be responsible for the keeping of ac-
curate records of all activities of the Council.

4. MEETINGS OF UNIVERSITY COUNCIL

4.1 Regular Meetings

The Council shall hold regular meetings at intervals of
approximately 1 month during the Fall and Spring semes-
ters. The date, time and place of these meetings shall
be published in the faculty bulletin or otherwise made
known to all University Faculty members at least 1 week
in advance. Any University Faculty member may attend
any Council meeting.

4.2 Special Meetings

The Council may hold special meetings at any time.
These meetings shall be publicized in the same way as
the regular meetings as nearly as is possible.

4.3 Agenda

The Chairman shall determine the order of business and
shall allow opportunity for introduction of new busi-
ness. If a resolution is directed to the Council by
the University Faculty, a segment thereof, or a College
faculty, the Council must act on it not later than the
first regular meeting following receipt of the resolu-
tion.

4.4 Distribution of Information

A copy of the Council minutes shall be placed in the
main Library and the Library of the Southern Branch
and shall be available to all members of the Faculty.
A copy shall also be provided for the President of the
University, for the Academic Vice President, for each
Dean and Director, and for each member of the Council.
It shall be the duty of the Council to inform the
Faculty via faculty bulletins or other adequate means
concerning its actions except those designated as Class
C (See Sec. 5).

5. CLASSIFICATION OF BUSINESS

5.1 Class A Actions

Class A actions are those which alter established Uni-
versity educational policy. Such actions may be initi-
ated by the University Faculty or a segment thereof, a
College faculty, the University Council, or the Presi-
dent of the University, but must be referred by the
University Council to the University Faculty or appro-
priate segment thereof for action by secret mail bal-
lot.

5.2 Class B Actions

Class B actions are those which pertain to powers and
duties delegated to the University Council by the Uni-
versity Faculty and which are not Class A or Class C
actions. Such actions become effective upon approval
by the President and are to be publicized in a faculty
bulletin as rapidly as is feasible.

5.3 Class C Actions

Class C actions are those which pertain to appointment
of committees, approval of committee reports, recep-
tion of information, determination of Council By-Laws,
or those pertaining to powers and duties delegated to
the University Council and specifically designated as
Class C matters by the University Faculty or a segment
thereof. Such actions shall be noted in the minutes
of the University Council, but shall be published
otherwise only at the discretion of the Council.

5.4 Determination of Classifications

If the dispute arises concerning the classification of
actions defined in this section which cannot be resolv-
ed by the University Council by application of the pro-
visions of this plan, the matter shall be referred to
the President of the University for decision.

6. SCOPE AND PURPOSE OF UNIVERSITY FACULTY MEMBERS

6.1 The University Faculty or a segment thereof shall hold
meetings for the purpose of receiving information from
the President, from other administrative officers, and
from the Council, and for the purpose of taking appro-
priate action on any matter of general University
educational policy or faculty interest.

6.2 The University Faculty or a segment thereof may recom-
mend action to the University Council by resolution
approved by a majority of members present. If a Class
A action is proposed, the University Council shall pre-
sent recommendations concerning the action at the next
meeting of the University Faculty for appropriate ac-
tion. The University Faculty or a segment thereof may
direct the Chairman of the Council to request the Pres-
ident to call a special meeting of the University
Faculty for the consideration of a Class A proposal
within a specified period of time.

6.3 At any meeting at which 50% or more of its members are
present, the University Faculty, through a resolution
approved by a majority of those present, may make rec-
ommendations upon any matter pertaining to the general
welfare of the University, which the University Council
must forward to the President.

6.4 At any meeting of University Faculty at which 25% or
more of its members are present, the University Faculty
through a resolution approved by a majority of those
present may require the Council to submit any of its
actions to a referendum vote of the University Faculty.

6.5 If identical resolutions are presented at meetings held
on the Reno and Las Vegas Campuses, the number present
shall be regarded as the total number attending the
2 meetings.

7. CALLING OF MEETINGS

The President of the University is the presiding of-
ficer at meetings of the University Faculty or any
segment thereof, as defined in Section 2. In his ab-
sence the Academic Vice President shall preside. If
neither of these persons can be present, the President
shall designate a presiding officer. The University
Faculty shall elect a Secretary from among its own
membership who shall be responsible for the maintenance
of accurate records of the deliberations. There shall
be at least 2 regular meetings of the University Facul-
ty in each semester. Special meetings of the Univer-
sity Faculty or a segment thereof may be called by the
President of the University or by his designate. Ei-
ther of these officers is required to call a meeting as
soon as is feasible upon written request signed by 15%
of the members of the group concerned. The officer
who calls the meeting shall determine the order of
business and in so doing shall provide opportunity for
introduction of new business from the floor.

8. COMMITTEES

8.1 University Committees

The President with the advice of the University Council
shall establish standing special committees and these
shall be known as University Committees.

8.2 University Council Committees

The University Council may create from among its own
members, or, in consultation with the President, from
among other members of the University Faculty, any
standing or special committees and define their powers
and duties. Such committees shall be known as commit-
tees of the University Council.

8.3 Other Committees

Committees created by other agencies shall bear titles
which indicate what person or agency has created the
committee.

8.4 Term of Service

The term of service of a member on any standing commit-
tee begins at the date of appointment and ends on the
next June 30. If a committee member is unable to serve
for any reason or if it is desirable to reassign him to
other duties, his appointment may be terminated by the
appointing officer or agency. Members of special com-
mittees serve until discharged by the person or organ-
ization which appointed the committee.

8.5 Committee Reports

Each standing committee shall meet at least once each
semester and may meet as frequently as the committee by
vote directs and as the Chairman deems necessary. At
least once a year the committee shall report its activ-
ities to the person or organization to which it is
responsible.

8.6 Limitation of Service

No member shall serve at the same time on more than 3
committees, nor shall he be Chairman of more than 1
committee unless his services are urgently required and
it is impractical to relieve him of other responsibili-
ties and the member in question is willing to serve.
This provision does not apply to committees created
by the College faculties.

9. DETERMINATION OF JURISDICTION

If any dispute arises regarding appropriate fields of
action among the University Faculty or any segment
thereof and the College faculties, or any University
official, which cannot be resolved by application of
provisions of this plan, the matter shall be referred
to the President of the University. He shall report
his decision to the disputing parties and to the Board
of Regents.
