led by Dr. Ray Bacchetti, Stanford University, who discussed how

Northern Nevada Community College - President Berg announced
the 1986-87 goals for NNCC:
1. Updating 4-Year Plan: With the flexibility a Community
College must possess in meeting the needs of its serv-
ice area, a shorter period of planning than 10 years is
needed. Therefore, NNCC will use 4 years because this
gives the equivalence of 2 biennia and it will be up-
dated at 2-year intervals.
2. Evaluation of Agriculture Program: As mentioned last
year, this is still a problem area. NNCC requested the
assistance of UNR in an evaluation of this program. As
a result of this assistance, NNCC will either modify
the program to better meet the needs of the service

3. Completion of Phase III: The architect has indicated
a November 1986 deadline for completion, and it is in-
tended to use the period between semesters for movement
into the facility.

services from Lundberg Hall will permit modification of
this facility to better meet instructional needs which
have arisen since the facility was completed in 1973.

5. Creation of White Pine Advisory Committee: The County
School Adult Vocational Advisory Committee of White
Pine has been disbanded. NNCC will replace it with a
new committee. Assuming success, it will serve as a
model for other larger communities in the NNCC service
6. Improved Telecommunications between Elko and Winne-
mucca: NNCC is exploring the feasibility of using the
existing microwave link to establish better and cheaper
communications between the two centers. This would in-
volve computers, phones, etc. If the concept proves
feasible, then NNCC would explore links with the other
centers it serves.

that a formerly financially dependent child, one who marries
and does not change his or her name, may receive an unwar-
ranted grant-in-aid because the Administration has not re-
ceived notice of the child's change in dependency status.
The above policy revision will have the effect of placing
the professional staff member on notice that the "child"
must be financially dependent. This gives assurance that
even if the child does marry and does not change his/her
name, the professional staff member must verify each time
a grant-in-aid is issued that the child is a financial
Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of the Handbook change regard-
ing grants-in-aid for professional staff and dependents.
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 March 1, 1986, were made by Regent Jo Ann
(1) Approved changing the Geotechnical Science program at
As a result of an informal program review, it was pro-
posed that it be restructured slightly to accommodate
the 3 main divisions of labor in the mining industry.
While the restructuring will leave the core program
intact, changes in elective areas will allow students
to select one of three options: Geotechnical, Metal-
lurgical and Engineering. The degree title Geotech-
nical Science would be replaced with Mining Technol-
ogy. Students would have more analytic classes,
mathematics, chemistry and computer requirements. The
engineering emphasis would require more surveying,
computer and computer-assisted drafting courses.
As this is not a new program, no Phase I, II proposals
(2) Approved the Phase I proposal for an AAS degree in
Paramedic Medicine at CCCC, as contained in Ref. AA-2,
filed in the Regents Office.
This proposal will provide students with a 3-tiered
program. Participants who complete one semester may
receive an Emergency Medical Technician II certifica-
tion; those who complete the one-year program will re-
ceive a Paramedic certification, and two-year gradu-
ates will be awarded the AAS in Paramedic Medicine.
The program has been designed to meet the accredita-
tion standards of the American Medical Association and
Emergency Department Physicians Association. 20 to 25
FTE students are anticipated to enroll during the 1st
year of the program, increasing to 45 FTE by the 4th
The planned date of implementation is August, 1986.
The majority of faculty, facilities, equipment and
core courses are currently in place. An additional
part-time instructor and laboratory assistant will be
necessary during the 1st year of the program. The
estimated budget for the 4th year is $42,000, and
includes an additional full-time instructor.
(3) Approved the Phase I proposal for an AAS degree in
Court Reporting at CCCC, as contained in Ref. AA-3,
filed in the Regents Office.
Completion of this program will prepare students for
careers as courtroom hearing and conference reporters.
Career opportunities are available at all levels of
government and range from reporting stenographer to
civil service and specialized reporting.
Funding needs are estimated at $10,000 for the 1st
year to provide for part-time faculty salaries. One
full-time faculty member, plus adjunct faculty and
equipment needs will call for $45,000 by the 4th year
of the program.
The planned date of implementation is August, 1986.
(4) Approved the Phase II proposal for an MS degree in
Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering
at UNR, as contained in Ref. AA-4, filed in the Re-
This multidisciplinary program will involve Depart-
ments in the Colleges of Engineering, Arts and Sci-
ence, and Business, as well as the School of Medicine.
Students will be awarded a degree from a traditional
Department, with emphasis on Computer Integrated
Manufacturing Systems Engineering. A curriculum
committee, with representatives from the particpating
Department, will oversee the program.
A 32-credit curriculum will consist of courses defined
as "breadth" and "depth" courses. "Breadth" courses
will be selected by the student from 3 areas of ex-
isting courses, and will involve cooperative programs
between the University and industries. Students will
have an opportunity to work at industrial sponsors'
plants. "Depth" courses will be completed in the stu-
dent's traditional department. UNR plans to implement
the program in the Spring of 1987.
Funding will be provided primarily by outside sources.
Xebec Corporation will provide $150,00 of the total
1st year budget of $265,000. The Computer-Aided De-
sign Laboratory, also provided by Xebec, will be a
major component of the program.
The Phase I proposal was approved by the Board of
Regents in October, 1985.
(5) Approved the name change of the Department of Medical
Technology of the School of Medicine to Department of
Clinical Laboratory Science.
(6) Approved the Phase I proposal for an MA for the Teach-
ing of Mathematics at the University of Nevada-Reno,
as contained in Ref. AA-6, filed in the Regents
This program, designed for practicing secondary
school teachers, will provide an emphasis on subject
matter preparation in the area of mathematics. It
is designed as an interdisciplinary program between
the College of Education and the College of Arts and
Science. Students will be required to demonstrate
competency in 5 areas of mathematics which relate to
the professional needs of secondary teachers. These
courses, as well as those in the College of Education,
are currently in place and will require little or no
The program will fill a gap between the existing mas-
ters' degrees in education and in mathematics by pro-
viding a terminal degree which emphasizes subject
A recent report revealed that close to 400 full- or
part-time mathematics teachers will be hired in the
northern portion of the State during the period 1982-
1990. In order to accommodate teachers, 2/3 of the
classes will be offered in the Summer; therefore, no
State funds will be required during the 1st year of
the program. $15,000 is requested by the 4th year,
which includes support of two teaching assistants.
No new faculty are needed, and existing facilities
and equipment are adequate to support the program.
4th year enrollment is projected at 15 FTE.
(7) Approved the Phase I proposal for a Ph. D. in En-
vironmental Biology at the University of Nevada, Las
Vegas, as contained in Ref. AA-7, filed in the Re-
This degree will provide graduates with a broad back-
ground which can be utilized in academia, government
and industry. In addition, the program will allow
specialization in one of 4 areas: Environmental
Physiology, Comparative Ecophysiology, Aquatic Biol-
ogy or Desert Biology. This preparation will allow
graduates to respond to the special needs of southern
Nevada. Currently, only 6 doctoral degees in the
area of environmental biology are offered in the
western states. This degree will be the first Ph. D.
offered at UNLV.
Rapid growth in southern Nevada has resulted in a need
for locally trained scientists who can respond to im-
pact on the biological resources in the area. This
program will place special emphasis on State and local
needs. Faculty are in place, or are being added, and
library holdings are being enhanced. It is expected
that there will be an opportunity to share resources
and research opportunities with UNR and DRI.
1st year enrollment is projected to be 4 FTE, increas-
ing to 16 by the 4th year of the program. Funding
will be provided through State allocations and grants,
contracts and gifts. Included in the request is
$300,000 for a research facility which will provide
the capability to control important environmental
Dr. Pete Starkweather, Chairman of the Biology Depart-
ment at UNLV, stated there will be a cooperative work-
ing effort among UNR, DRI and UNLV.
The request for $300,000 will be included among capi-
tal improvement requests, but if that should fail,
faculty and classified positions will be funded from
other sources and new resources will be established.
(8) Approved the Phase II proposal for an Associate of
Science degree at Northern Nevada Community College,
as contained in Ref. AA-8, filed in the Regents Of-
This degree, an alternative to the Associate of Arts
degree, will consist of 60-64 credits, with 18 credits
required in the science and mathematics areas. All
required and elective courses listed in the Phase II
proposal can be covered by the present curriculum.
More specialized courses can be provided through a
telecourse or PLATO. Requirements for admission and
completion of the degree will be similar to those for
the Associate of Arts degree.
The AS degree will better prepare students to transfer
into 4-year programs in science and engineering. Es-
timated 1st year funding will total $74,100, decreas-
ing to $5,500 in the 4th year. This is required pri-
marily for remodeling and equipment needs. Existing
faculty and staff are sufficient to offer the program.
The Phase I proposal was approved by the Board of
Regents in December, 1985.
Mrs. Kenney moved approval of all the above programs. Mrs.
Whitley seconded. Motion carried.
(9) Mrs. Sheerin stated that because the review and ap-
proval by the Board of Regents of new programs at
Nevada Campuses is an extremely important Board func-
tion, and because needed resources to support new
programs are often barely adequate, the Board should
consider coupling the approval of new programs with
a review of existing programs, especially in areas
related to the degree. If, for example, the new
proposed program is in the area of the sciences, then
the proposal for a new program, or programs, should
be accompanied by a program review of related pro-
grams in that science.
Currently, using established guidelines from the
Handbook for program review, and utilizing the Phase
I, Phase II process for new programs, programs can
be submitted to the Board of Regents through the
Academic Affairs Committee at any meeting of the
Board. To provide for better planning and better
coordination of the degree proposal process, the
Board might consider receiving both requests for new
programs and a status report on existing programs
twice yearly: in the Fall and in the Spring.
Vice Chancellor Fox, the Academic Affairs Council and
the Council of Presidents have been requested to de-
velop a proposal to accomplish such a review process
and present it to the Board for consideration, with
a progress report on these activities to be scheduled
for the next Board meeting.
Mrs. Kenney moved approval of the Academic Affairs Committee
report. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.
(10) A discussion of the document, Proposal for Alternative
Methods to Satisfy New University Admission Require-
ments, was held. The document is filed in the Regents
Office. Vice Chancellor Fox stated that there have
been lengthy discussions between UNR and UNLV, but
that this document will need to be communicated to
Nevada high schools as well as to inquiries from out
Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the alternative
methods to satisfy new University admissions require-
ments. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.
Mrs. Kenney requested that the State Vocational Edu-
cation office be notified of these alternative meth-
23. Approved Reinstatement of Regents Ad Hoc Committee
In accordance with policy, the Board of Regents ad hoc Com-
mittees expire after one year. Approved that the ad hoc
Committee on DRI Liaison be reinstated. (The Chairman
appointed the following to serve: Dorothy S. Gallagher,
Chairman, Joan Kenney, June Whitley, Mr. Art Anderson and
Mr. Fred Gibson.)
Mrs. Kenney moved approval of the reinstatement of the ad
hoc Committee on DRI Liaison. Ms. Del Papa seconded.
24. Report of Capital Improvement Requests, NNCC and WNCC
At the January 1986 meeting, the Board requested that Cam-
puses develop presentations outlining their Capital Improve-
ment requests. NNCC and WNCC made presentations. (UNLV and
CCCC are scheduled for the May meeting; UNR and DRI are
scheduled for the June meeting.) For TMCC's Capital Im-
provement requests, see item 6 above.
Northern Nevada Community College
Northern Nevada Community College will request $100,000
in its 1987-89 Capital Improvement request to cover the
expense of remodeling Lundberg Hall once NNCC has oc-
cupied the Instructional Building Phase III (January,
1987). Should proposed modifications exceed $100,000,
NNCC will seek permission of the Board of Regents to
use additional NNCC Capital Improvement funds.
Western Nevada Community College
Staff members of WNCC presented details of their Capital
Improvement projects, and explained the need for more
classrooms, laboratories, and office space at the Carson
City and Fallon Campuses.
25. Report and Recommendations of the Budget and Finance Com-
A report and recommendations of the Budget and Finance Com-
mittee meeting, held March 13, 1986, were made by Regent

ment files for TMCC graduates.
Student participation in the placement service is
UNR - Health Service Fee from $30 to $35 (See Ref.
B-3, filed in the Regents Office.)
A UNR committee was established to study student
health fees and the consensus of this committee, the
Student Senate and ASUN was to continue with the
student health fees on a voluntary basis and to con-
tinue allotting $.90 to the Health Service and a $10
late fee charged if a student signs up for health
fees in the middle of the semester.
ASUN President Ted Lancaster distributed a survey of
students' opinions regarding the health service fee,
which is filed in the Regents Office.
UNR will report back on this issue after a one-year
(4) Approved the following change:
UNR - Private Instrument and Voice Instruction from

The Music Department and the College of Arts & Science
have proposed a fee increase for private music lesson
courses from $75 to $125, effective Fall, 1986. Maxi-
mum charge for student registering for two or more
credits would increase from $150 to $250. The last
increase for private music lesson courses was in 1969.

Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of items 1 through 9 of the
Budget and Finance Committee Report. Mrs. Kenney seconded.
(10) Information Only - Vice Chancellor Sparks presented
the report of the 1984-85 UNS Operating Budget vs.
1984-85 Actual Results as an information item. The
report is filed in the Regents Office.
(11) As provided in Title 4, Chapter 10, Section 6.2(a) and
(d), the Committee accepted proposals requesting fund-
ing from the Regents Special Projects Funds. The un-
expended amount of the fund is $57,315. Proposals
from Campuses total $249,332, and Regents/staff pro-
posals total $113,000. Vice Chancellor Dawson with-
drew a request from the University of Nevada Press.
The Committee will meet prior to the next Regents
meeting to review the policies for the use of these
funds and all submitted proposals.
(12) Mr. Gordon Gochnour, Chairman of the System Compensa-
tion Committee, presented compensation recommendations
for the 1987-89 biennium (filed in Regents Office).
Upon acceptance of the report, the Chairman requested
the Compensation Committee report the cost of this
salary package at the next meeting.
(13) Approved the categories outlining new funding in the
enhancement budget, but postponed establishing a
priority order until dollar amounts are affixed to
the requests. The categories are:
1. Professional Salaries
The specific salary recommendation will be de-
veloped when the latest comparative salary data
for the current fiscal year becomes available.
However, several components of the recommendation
include extending the merit program to all UNS
professional employees, providing a cost of living
increase and establishing salary goals.
2. Non-Instructional Support Positions
This priority will include the most critical sup-
port positions which relate directly to enrollment
and instructional growth. It also will correspond
to the expansion of the funding formula currently
being developed by the Legislative Committee
Studying Funding for Higher Education. These sup-
port positions will include areas such as student
services, institutional support, academic support,
O & M of plant and support for business centers.
3. Instructional Enhancement
Instructional enhancement proposals are being de-
developed and will include strengthening develop-
mental student/faculty ratios and the full-time/
part-time ratios in the Community Colleges, re-
quests for additional graduates, teaching and lab
assistants, equipment, libraries, research, schol-
arships and grants-in-aid.
4. Non-Instructional Enhancement
Included within this priority will be additional
support positions, O & M of plant, equipment, etc.
Also, Chancellor's Office, Computer Center, Uni-
versity Press and DRI requests will be included.
5. New Programs
Requests such as creation of new centers of ex-
cellence, staff development, telecommunications
and quick-start programs will be included in
26. Report and Recommendations of the Audit Committee
A report and recommendations of the Audit Committee meeting,
held March 13, 1986, were made by Regent Whitley, Chairman.
(1) Vice Chancellor Sparks introduced representatives of
Kafoury-Armstrong, who presented the UNS Management
Letter and recommendations for 1984-85. Mr. Larry
Helseth, Mrs. Debbie Smith and Mr. Tom Brooker, from
Kafoury-Armstrong, presented the financial audit and
management letters. Mr. Helseth referred to the con-
solidated report, which encompasses all the Campuses
and the System. After a lengthy discussion, it was
agreed that format changes need to be made, and that
it would be much more informative and helpful to Re-
gents to have an audit report of each institution.
The staff was directed to develop a new format, working
in conjunction with Kafoury-Armstrong.
Also brought out in the discussion was that because a
decentralized controller system is used, there is no
one currently on the staff responsible for a procedures
book which would govern a Systemwide approach to re-
porting. Upon questioning of the staff, it was learned
that this would indeed be helpful, but it requires a
knowledgeable person to write and maintain a procedures
manual. The Chancellor's staff was directed to return
to the Audit Committee with a proposal for accomplish-
ing this task. The Campus business officers supported
this move, stating that this should be a part of a
management information system.
Mr. Brooker reviewed the Business Center South audit
and described the recommendations which had been made.
Mr. Scott, Controller of BCS, responded that the human
controls are in place, but the gearing up for computer
control is about a year away. The funds appropriated
($2.5 million for MIS) by the 1985 Legislature will be
utilized in that time to apply to the antiquated system
now in use. Further, he stated that all recommenda-
tions for UNLV and CCCC have been addressed.
Ms. Debbie Smith presented the Business Center North
and System audits and outlined the recommendations for
improvements. Ms. Smith stated they had had a tremen-
dous response from the various Campuses and the System
to the recommendations and that Kafoury-Armstrong feels
much more positive.
Mr. Dhingra, BCN, related that it has in place the cor-
rections suggested by Kafoury-Armstrong, although in
some instances alternative methods have been used rath-
er than those outlined in the report. These alterna-
tives have been approved by Kafoury-Armstrong.
In a prior audit UNR had been directed by the Audit
Committee to install cash registers, as recommended by
the report. Mr. Dhingra reported that they had been
waiting for the MIS to be funded in order to coordinate
the equipment so there would not be additional expense.
However, since that request for $7 million for an MIS
system was not forthcoming from the Legislature, an
alternative procedure was developed and has been ap-
proved by the auditors. The cash registers have not
been installed and will not now need to be installed.
(2) Accepted the audit report and recommendations for
Lawlor Events Center, UNR, as presented by Mrs. Sandi
Cardinal, Director of Internal Audit. Mrs. Cardinal
reported that all the recommenations have been imple-
mented or are in the process of being implemented.
Deputy Chancellor Dawson reported that it has been the
policy not to tag items under $500 for inventory pur-
poses. However, a number of these smaller items are
now missing and an alternative method for keeping con-
trol of these needs to be developed.
Mr. Klaich commended Mr. Bob Dagitz, Director of Lawlor
Events Center, for his management of the Center. Mr.
Dagitz will be leaving Reno shortly to assume another
(3) Internal Audit Director Sandi Cardinal reported on a
followup of previous audits as requested by the Board
of Regents. (Complete responses are filed in the Re-
gents Office.) Mrs. Cardinal reported that all recom-
mendations have been implemented.
UNS - Unused Annual Leave
(July 1, 1984 through June 30, 1985)
UNLV - Concert Hall Facilities
(January 1, 1983 through June 30, 1985)
UNLV - Consolidated Students of the University of
Nevada, Las Vegas (CSUN)
(July 1, 1984 through September 30, 1985)
CCCC - Registration and Cashiering Systems
(Fall Semester, 1984 and Spring Semester, 1985)
(4) Information Only
Internal Audit Director Sandi Cardinal stated they
found no changes made from the previous sholarship
office audit; however, there will be a reorganization
of the scholarship office on July 1, 1986. A followup
audit is scheduled shortly thereafter.
Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the report and recommenda-
tions of the Audit Committee. Ms. Del Papa seconded.
27. Approved Sale of Property, UNLV
Approved the sale of two parcels of land consisting of 5.53
acres for $4,600 and 7.58 acres for $11,100 to the City of
Los Angeles for power line easements. This land was given
to the University by Pabco Gypsum Properties for use in geo-
logical studies, and funds received will be placed in the
Geoscience Sales Account. The University retains the right
to conduct geological studies on this land.
Ms. Del Papa moved approval to sell UNLV property. Mrs.
Whitley seconded. Motion carried.
28. Approved Easement, UNLV
Approved a request to grant the Nevada Power Company and the
Central Telephone Company a 10' x 10' easement at the north-
east corner of the Houssels House. The easement is needed
to provide electrical and telephone service to the Houssels
Ms. Del Papa moved for approval of the easement at UNLV.
Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.
29. Approved the Naming of the New Mines Building, UNR
Approved naming the new Mines building including the exist-
ting structure recently completed and the proposed 80,000
sq. ft. addition, the "Paul Laxalt Mineral Engineering
Mrs. Gallagher moved approval to name the new Mines building
the "Paul Laxalt Mineral Engineering Center". Mrs. Whitley
seconded. Unanimously carried.
30. Accepted Deed to Stead Acreage, UNR
Accepted the Quitclaim Deed to 7.76 acres of land at Stead
which was used formerly by the Reno National Guard. There
is a 30-year restriction on the property requiring that it
must be used only for educational purposes.
Mrs. Sparks moved approval to accept the Quitclaim Deed at
Stead. Ms. Del Papa seconded. Motion carried.
31. New Business
A. Chairman Klaich related that the members of the Board
will conduct an intensive workshop this Summer and re-
quested that members of the Board, Presidents and Chan-
cellor's staff submit subjects to be discussed.
B. The Board discussed various methods of managing the
timeframe required at Board of Regents meetings. Mrs.
Gallagher is opposed to meeting every two months because
the full agenda does not allow the Board to fully dis-
cuss important issues. Ms. Del Papa suggested block
motions be utilized more frequently and Mrs. Sheerin
suggested teleconferencing special Campus presentations
which save on faculty travel expenses.
The meeting adjourned at 4:30 P.M.
