ant, who demonstrated to the Board of Regents the computerized

UNS Transfer Guide.



3. Introductions



President Hidy introduced Mr. Dale Schulke, Acting Vice

President at DRI.



President Crowley introduced Dr. Frank Hartigan, Vice Chair-

man of the Faculty Senate at UNR.



4. Chairman's Report



Chairman Klaich announced that Governor Bryan has approved

the sale of the System Administration building located at

405 Marsh Avenue, Reno.



Governor Bryan wrote a letter to Chairman Klaich announcing

that UNR has been declared a National Historic District.

(The letter is filed with the permanent minutes.) Chairman

Klaich requested Secretary Moser, Chancellor Dawson and

President Crowley to arrange a reception to commemorate

this honor during National Historic Preservation Week which

begins May 9, 1987.



Chairman Klaich reported on the meeting held on March 11,

1987 with Chancellor Dawson, General Counsel Klasic and Mr.

Edgar Collins, Oakland Area Office Director of the Office

of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). Mr.

Collins explained the purpose of OFCCP, obtaining informa-

tion about the UNS preparatory to OFCCP audits of insti-

tutions of the UNS, determining progress on last year's rec-

ommendations by the OFCCP on improving the Board's affirma-

tive action responsibilities, and updating Chairman Klaich

and Chancellor Dawson on the OFCCP's audit of UNR.



Recommendations designed to improve UNS programs are as

follows:



OFCCP recommended creating a Systemwide affirmative ac-

tion officer position, but it was explained that the

approach might not be workable, given the federated

nature of UNS in which primary authority rests with the

institutions. If the Board of Regents delegates author-

ity for affirmative action compliance to the Campuses,

however, it must institute rigorous reporting require-

ments to ensure that institutions are progressing toward

affirmative action goals. The OFCCP, the Chancellor's

Office and the Council of Presidents will create a re-

porting format to measure progress.



The progress in meeting affirmative action goals becomes

a part of Presidential evaluations and OFCCP recommended

a formula for quantifying Presidents' progress.



OFCCP recommended conducting an inventory of facilities

to determine accessibility to the handicapped.



OFCCP recommended earmarking scholarships for protected

groups and OFCCP may provide lists of potential donors

who might also benefit from a reciprocal compliance

arrangement.



The Board was encouraged to step up its outreach activi-

ties in Nevada communities to let citizens know it is

serious about forwarding goals of affirmative action.

This is also recommended to be a major activity of the

Presidents.



While tenure and promotion decisions are determined at

the Campus level, information provided to the Board may

be structured to ensure there is not a "short-circuiting

in the tenure and evaluation process."



Chairman Klaich expressed his confidence that resulting af-

firmative action policies can be implemented without the

Board of Regents becoming involved in Campus administration.



Mr. Eardley and Mrs. Whitley requested information regarding

the recent Supreme Court ruling on feminism. It was decided

that this topic would be explained at the upcoming Regents

Workshop.



5. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Dawson provided an update of recent 1987 legisla-

tive activities of concern to Nevada public higher educa-

tion. In a review of TIAA-CREF, the State insurance com-

missioner found that CREF is not licensed to sell life in-

surance in Nevada, so TIAA has introduced legislation to

make it legal for CREF to sell insurance.



It appears UNS will not be able to defeat S. B. 161, a pro-

posed bill reducing use of temporary, part-time employees

for 480 hours annually to 160 hours yearly. The measure,

endorsed strongly by the State of Nevada Employees Associ-

ation, would exempt UNR and UNLV pavilion workers and per-

sons hired part-time to assist Community Colleges with

registrations.



Chancellor Dawson discussed several issues related to Ques-

tion 5 funds, which are the Federal estate tax funds revert-

ed back to Nevada. The Chancellor's Office is working with

key lawmakers to amend S. B. 23, a bill sponsored by Senator

Don Mello, addressing distribution of funds. UNS is pro-

posing that monies be set aside in an endowment fund ad-

ministered by UNS rather than placed in the State general

fund. UNS would budget a pre-determined amount annually and

the remainder of collections would be used to build an en-

dowment of $50 million. Once the endowment is established,

excess proceeds would again be made available to UNS in-

stitutions for one-shot academic enhancements. Any retro-

active collections would assist in building the endowment.



A plan by the Senate Finance Committee to use $325,000 to

pay a debt the State Department of Education owes the fed-

eral government "is not keeping faith with the voters,"

so stated Chancellor Dawson. And UNS plans to "vigorously

oppose" S. B. 312, a bill sponsored by Senators Nick Horn

and Ray Rawson that would establish a separate commission

appointed by the Governor on a geographically proportioned

basis to spend up to $1 million during 1987-89 for "programs

which further educational activities relating to speech,

drama, the theater, dance, music and for education of handi-

capped pupils." Any education organization which has been

in existence for 2 years would be eligible, and preference

would be given to organizations which teach or train handi-

capped students without charge.



President Meacham expressed concern about passage of S. B.

29, a bill that would appropriate $1.2 million to equip and

operate a health science center in Las Vegas. Regents ap-

proved a request to allow Las Vegas philanthropist Claude I.

Howard to construct a clinic and health science center on

West Charleston Street in Las Vegas for use by CCCC. It

would also house the School of Medicine's southern Medicaid

clinic. Construction will be financed by $490,000 generated

through the sale of the North Las Vegas Shopping Center own-

ed by Mr. Howard and donated for use by the Medical School.

And Mr. Howard has agreed to donate the remaining costs of

building the facility. Funds to operate and equip the fa-

cility would be available if S. B. 29 passes.



General Counsel Klasic reported on the class action suit

brought against the Board of Regents regarding longevity pay

for all System employees. The court upheld Mr. Klasic's

motion for summary judgment against employees who brought

the suit and in favor of the Board. Mrs. Gallagher highly

commended General Counsel Klasic.



6. Approved Amendment to Handbook, Affirmative Action Pro-

cedures



Approved an amendment to the Handbook, Title 4, Chapter 8,

Section 8, as contained in Ref. B. This proposal would

amend the System procedures for handling affirmative action

complaints which will streamline the complaint process, es-

tablish a surer method of choosing members of an affirmative

action grievance committee, eliminates redundant or unneces-

sary procedures and clarifies the remaining procedures.



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

Affirmative Action Procedures. Mrs. Whitley seconded. Mo-

tion carried.



ASUN President Todd Plimpton reported on the accomplishments of

ASUN during his term as President, such as reducing the speed

limit on Virginia Street, creating "Blue Thunder", cooperating

with other student associations, donating a gift from the Class

of '87 to UNR Campus, and conducting a self-study of the ASUN

Bookstore. He extended an invitation to the Board members to

attend the ASUN Banquet on April 4, 1987.



7. Approved the Resolution: UNLV Rebels Basketball Team



Approved the following resolution:



RESOLUTION #87-1



WHEREAS, the UNLV Running Rebel basketball team has been

number 1 in the country for most of the 1986-87 season,

and



WHEREAS, the Running Rebels were the champions in their

division, and



WHEREAS, the Running Rebels proceeded to the NCAA play-

offs, winning their games, and



WHEREAS, the Running Rebels were then able to take all

Nevadans with them to the exciting NCAA Final Four games

in New Orleans, NOW, THEREFORE BE IT



RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents commend the members

of the Running Rebel basketball team, and their coach,

Jerry Tarkanian and his staff for so ably representing

their University, the System and the State, and, FURTHER

BE IT



RESOLVED, that the Board extends congratulations to

these young men and every good wish for their future

endeavors.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the resolution regarding the

UNLV basketball team. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion car-

ried.



Chairman Klaich left the meeting. Mrs. Kenney, Vice Chairman,

assumed the gavel.

information item only, with Board action scheduled for the

May 14-15, 1987 meeting.



A. University of Nevada-Reno - President Crowley recommends

the following promotion, effective July 1, 1987:



Jannet M. Carmichael, to Associate Professor of Internal

11. Report on Articulation Issues in the University of Nevada

System



In January, 1987 the Board of Regents requested that a prog-

ress report on the transfer of students and credits (espe-

cially in nursing programs) be prepared for the April meet-

ing of the Board. Since that time, the UNS Articulation

Board has met and nursing program representatives have been

contacted. Vice Chancellor Fox presented an overview of

nursing articulation issues, filed in the Regents Office.



There was some discussion on whether or not the National

League of Nursing (NLN) should accredit the System's nursing

programs. President Berg stated that he felt it was not

necessary since the State Board of Nursing accredits the

programs. President Gwaltney stated that NLN accreditation

is costly and also felt it was not to the System's advan-

tage. Mrs. Sheerin pointed out that the System is trying

to build a "ladder" program with incomptable programs;

therefore, these programs must be re-worked. President

Meacham indicated that UNLV has NLN accreditation and CCCC

will seek NLN accreditation. Nursing representatives

throughout UNS are working to address student transfer

problems. The Board requested that articulation problems

be addressed in a "timely manner".



12. Report of DRI Liaison Committee



A report of the DRI Liaison Committee meeting, held March 6,

1987, was made by Regent Dorothy Gallagher, Chairman. She

presented "Report and Recommendations from the DRI Liaison

Committee", filed in the Regents Office. Mrs. Gallagher

requested approval of two additional people to serve on the

Search Committee.



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of two additional people to

serve on the DRI Presidential Search Committee. Mrs. Sparks

seconded. Motion carried.



13. Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee



A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Commit-

tee meeting, held April 2, 1987, were made by Regent Jo Ann

Sheerin, Chairman.



NOTE: The following two programs, AAS in Ophthalmic Tech-

nology and the AAS in Nursing, previously had had

Phase I approval by the Board of Regents, and for

the completion of new program review requirements,

the Phase II is required.



(1) Approved the Phase II Proposal for an AAS degree in

Ophthalmic Technology, as contained in Ref. AA-1, filed

in the Regents Office.



This program will provide a cost-effective means to

provide trained technicians who will function as as-

sistants to the ophthalmologist.



The curriculum will consist of 69 credits, with 35

credits in the major area. A minimum ACT composite

score of 17 and a 2.5 grade point average will be re-

quired for admission to the program. A 2.0 GPA will

be required for completion, with a "C" or higher in

each required course.



Funding is projected at $14,300 for the 1st year of

the program. This will be decreased to $12,200 by the

4th year. This is due to expected attrition and ad-

mission of students only on an every-other-year basis.



Students who complete this degree will be eligible for

admission to the proposed BS in Health Care Administra-

tion program at UNLV, with credits earned in the major

field applying toward completion of the major concen-

tration requirements.



Further, CCCC will seek accreditation for this program

by the American Medical Association's Committee on

Allied Health Education and Accreditation. Upon com-

pletion of the degree, graduates will be eligible to

write the national examination for certification as

ophthalmic technicians.



Professional practitioneers in the Las Vegas area, of-

ficials of the Joint Commission on Allied Health Per-

sonnel in Ophthalmology, and directors of accredited

programs in other states were consulted on program

plans.



The Phase I Proposal was approved by the Board of Re-

gents in January, 1987.



Mrs. Sheerin questioned if two faculty members were

sufficient for this program, and President Meacham

stated that there is a problem, but it can be overcome.

The two faculty members are a combination of part-time

faculty which have been reassigned, and there is a

full-time faculty in the program.



(2) Approved the Phase II Proposal for an AAS degree in

Nursing at CCCC, as contained in Ref. AA-2, filed in

the Regents Office.



This program will enable CCCC to offer nursing educa-

tion opportunities at two levels. A ladder curricu-

lum (1-plus-1) will allow students to receive a prac-

tical nursing certificate after 1 year of training,

and an AAS degree with a major in nursing after the

completion of 2 years.



Admission to the program will require completion of the

Practical Nursing Program with a minimum GPA of 2.0, a

minimum ACT composite score of 17, and current Nevada

licensure as a Practical Nurse. The curriculum will

consist of 34 credits. Completion of the practical

nursing certificate and AAS will require a total of 70

credits.



Funding for the program is projected at $89,063 by the

4th year, and includes salaries for additional faculty,

travel and indirect costs. Existing facilities and

equipment are adequate at this time.



The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is currently phas-

ing out its Associate Degree Nursing Program. This

action, combined with an acute shortage of nurses in

southern Nevada, will increase the demand for enroll-

ment in this program. 2-plus-2 articulation between

CCCC and UNLV will be retained. It is anticipated that

50 students will enroll annually.



CCCC has maintained contact with the Nevada Board of

Nursing in order to ensure the program meets all re-

quirements for approval. It is anticipated that ac-

creditation will be sought from the National League

of Nursing.



The Phase I program was approved by the Board of Re-

gents in October, 1985.



Mr. Eardley questioned whether the articulation of

nursing programs is being addressed and President

Meacham stated that the State Board of Nursing and

the Academic Affairs Council have specifically ad-

dressed nursing articulation and are supportive of the

decisions made thus far. Dr. Alison Mc Pherson, Di-

rector of the Science and Health Department at CCCC,

reviewed the different degree-granting programs and

the years in which it takes to achieve the degree or

certificate. Mr. Eardley asked if the LPN program

has a similar core program in order for easy transfer.

Dr. Mc Pherson replied that the LPN program does trans-

fer into a 2-year program and that UNLV accepts approx-

imately 60 credits towards the Bachelor of Science de-

gree. UNR also complies with this transfer.



Vice Chancellor Fox informed the Committee that he had

sent a letter to each institution questioning their

position in seeking National League of Nursing (NLN)

accreditation. Each institution has responded, with

the majority of institutions not wishing to seek ac-

creditation from NLN. CCCC stated that they would con-

tinue to proceed in seeking NLN accreditation.



Dr. Gwaltney proposed that NLN accreditation should be

a Systemwide decision, not one made by an individual

Campus. Vice Chancellor Fox disagreed with the System-

wide approach by stating that if NLN accreditation is

granted at the Community College level, transferring to

the Universities would be much easier.



Mr. Eardley emphasized the importance of standardized

articulation between institutions, especially for the

sake of the students.



Mrs. Sheerin requested the accreditation issue be

clarified at the next meeting.



Mrs. Sheerin asked about the progress on testing stu-

dents for placement in math classes and English classes

at CCCC. Dr. Alan Balboni, Dean of Education Services

at CCCC, stated that English placement was functioning

well and that CCCC uses a national test in placing

students. As for math, there is not an overall place-

ment test so the interested students must see a coun-

selor for appropriate placement.



NOTE: As approved by the Board of Regents in December, 1986

the following 3 programs, AAS Machine Technology, AAS

Child Development and the AAS in Medical Records

Technology are following a new format for program

review.



(3) Approved the AAS degree in Machine Technology at WNCC,

as contained in Ref. AA-3, filed in the Regents Office.



A description of the program can be found in Ref. AA-3.

This program will provide the skills necessary for em-

ployment in the machine trades field, as well as up-

grade skills for those who are currently employed and

desire additional training. The planned date of initi-

ation is Fall, 1987.



In the WNCC service area there are many manufacturing

firms which have a need for trained machine technolo-

gists. Currently, this need is not being met.



A total of 72 credits will be required in this program,

including 39 credits of new core courses in the machine

technology area. A minimum cumulative grade point

average of 2.0 will be required for completion of the

program.



Two existing related programs are the AAS in Manufac-

turing Engineering Technology and AAS in Welding Tech-

nology. The latter program was reviewed in 1985 and

found to be operating within performance standards,

with an average student enrollment of 60-70 students

per semester. It is recognized throughout northern

Nevada as a model program. The Manufacturing Engineer-

ing Technology is a new program implemented in 1986.



Funding for the program will initially require 4 part-

time faculty at a total of $6400 per year. It is hoped

that 1 full-time faculty position will be funded in

subsequent years. No additional facilities or equip-

ment will be required.



Dr. John Garmon, Dean of Educational Services at WNCC,

stated that an advisory committee was established 3

years ago to address machine technology, and in 1985

the Legislature funded the program. A survey was con-

ducted which indicated that there were 171 job openings

in machine technology throughout the State of Nevada

with only 45 qualified persons to fill the positions.

He introduced Mr. Ted Melsheimer of Mustang Manufac-

turing and Mr. Mike Anselm of Sierra Cast. They both

serve on the advisory committee and made personal

statements in support of the machine technology at

WNCC.



Mrs. Sheerin questioned the placement of this program

at WNCC, and President Calabro stated that there is a

definite need throughout the State, but an immediate

need in the Carson Valley area. Mrs. Sheerin was

pleased with the cooperation between NNCC and the

business industry.



There was discussion on the fading apprenticeship pro-

grams in the work force. It was stated that education

provides theory that persons do not receive on the job,

but the industry cannot afford apprentice programs any

longer.



A critical goal for this program is to achieve a full-

time faculty member. Dr. Garmon stated that the ad-

visory committee will serve on the screening committee

for the full-time faculty who will be a liaison person

with business and industry.



Mr. Eardley stated he hoped that with the great amount

of money going towards equipment and supplies that TMCC

would not duplicate this program, and with the demand

for this program being requested throughout the State,

this program should be coordinated Statewide.



President Calabro related the reason the program review

stated that there will be no effect on other programs

is because there will not be resources from other pro-

grams used to support the machine technology program,

but there will be programmatic impact.



(4) Approved the AAS degree in Child Development at TMCC,

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



A description of this degree can be found in Ref. AA-4.

This program will provide the training needed for em-

ployment in child care facilities such as pre-schools

and day care centers. The date of implementation is

planned for Fall, 1987.



There is a need for improved quality of child care in

the community, and a number of people currently employ-

ed in child care facilities may wish to upgrade their

job skills. In addition, the local need for facilities

is expected to increase in the future.



Graduates of the program will have completed a total

of 60 credits, with 39 credits in the major area. At

present, no new courses are planned. However, courses

may be added as electives in response to community

needs. A cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or

better will be required for completion of the program.



Programs related to this proposal include certificates

of achievement in "Teacher" and "Director". A review

of the curriculum in 1985 and 1986 resulted in the

addition of several courses to the program.



The 1985 Legislature provided funding for one full-time

child development instructor. Therefore, for the 1st

year of the program no funds are requested. The 4th

year funding is estimated at $66,000 and will include

2.5 FTE faculty.



Dr. Ron Remington, Dean of Instructional Services at

TMCC, introduced Mrs. Betty Elliott, Chairman of the

Science Department at TMCC, and Ms. Susan Oriard, In-

structor of Child Development at TMCC, who both pre-

sented statements in support of the AAS degree in Child

Development at TMCC.



Mr. Eardley asked what the requirements are for child

care centers, and Mrs. Elliott replied that a person

only needs 3 hours for teaching in Washoe County. Each

county has its own requirements. She continued by

stating that many child care center directors have

served on the Advisory Board for Child Development

and have contributed towards the curriculum. Mr.

Eardley asked if there is a required license for any-

one who takes care of children and was answered in the

affirmative. There is only one known employer in

Battle Mountain who sponsors child care for its employ-

ees, but this has become a national movement and will

be implemented more and more thoughout the country.



Mrs. Sheerin questioned the articulation issue for

this program and was informed that some courses could

be repeated at the University level.



It was noted that such issues as child pornography and

child abuse are addressed in several of the classes

with one class devoted entirely to child abuse.



Mrs. Sheerin asked for a summary on the English and

math testing programs at TMCC. Dr. Remington stated

that TMCC has an extremely good success in placement.



The Open Door policy was addressed and it was indicated

that students 25 and older are not mandated to be test-

ed for placement in English, but they do have to write

a paragraph to indicate their knowledge. Mrs. Sheerin

requested that English and math placement programs be

addressed at the next meeting.



(5) Approved the AAS degree in Medical Records Technology

at CCCC, as contained in Ref. AA-5, filed in the Re-

gents Office.



A description of this degree can be found in Ref. AA-5.

The program will consist of 64-67 credit hours, with a

minimum 2.0 grade point average required for gradua-

tion. The anticipated date of initiation is September,

1987.



Individuals who complete this program will be trained

for employment in hospitals, ambulatory and long-care

facilities, State health departments and other organi-

zations. There is currently a short supply of trained

individuals in the State, and recruitment is costly.



Curriculum for the program will include 42 credits in

the major field, plus the general education require-

ments for the AAS degree. Accrediting and certifying

organizations were consulted in the process of develop-

ing this proposal, and accreditation will be sought

for the program. UNLV plans to propose a program in

Medical Records Administration which will articulate

directly with this AAS degree.



Related allied health programs at CCCC include Dental

Hygiene, Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technology, Res-

piratory Therapy and Paramedic Medicine. Formal re-

views were undertaken for the Nursing and Respiratory

Therapy programs in Spring, 1986. The Dental Hygiene

program was reviewed two years earlier. All received

excellent ratings. Both the Medical Laboratory Tech-

nology and Paramedic Medicine are new degree programs,

approved by the Board of Regents in 1986.



Funding is projected at $6,500 for the 1st year of the

program, increasing to $26,000 by the 4th year. This

estimate will include a half-time coordinator and part-

time instructors. Equipment and facilities are ade-

quate at the present.



Mrs. Sheerin complimented CCCC for the efficient and

most complete proposal which was submitted.



Mrs. Kenney requested a follow-up report on this pro-

gram after it gets underway.



Dr. Mc Pherson stated that there is no full-time facul-

ty at this time, but it will be a high priority in the

future. There will be a coordinator for both the

Medical Records Technology and Ophthalmic Technology

programs because the medical field is short of faculty

who are willing to work for a College faculty wage.



Mrs. Sheerin requested that future proposals submitted

for any and all programs should include problems which

the program may encounter.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Academic Affairs Committee. Mr. Eardley seconded.

Motion carried.



Chairman Klaich returned and resumed the gavel.



14. Report and Recommendations of the Audit Committee



A report and recommendations of the Audit Committee meeting,

held April 2, 1987, were made by Regent June Whitley, Act-

ing Chairman.



(1) Approved the audit of the UNLV Center for Survey Re-

search, January 1, 1985 through June 30, 1986.



The audit report was distributed at the meeting and is

filed in the Regents Office.



Mrs. Whitley requested Chancellor Dawson, General

Counsel Klasic and business officers to develop a sys-

tem policy for professional staff members regarding

outside compensation such as consulting and out-of-

state research projects. Chancellor Dawson described

to the Committee the Federal ruling on "A" and "B"

contracts.



(2) Approved the audit of the UNLV Library Department,

July 1, 1985 through December 31, 1986.



The audit report was distributed at the meeting and is

filed in the Regents Office.



(3) The change in the audit guidelines requested by the

Board has resulted in Campus Management Letters issued

by the outside auditors. The presentations were made

by Campus controllers.



Ms. Paula Ringkob, TMCC Associate Dean of College Serv-

ices, presented the Management Letter for TMCC, which

is filed in the Regents Office. She noted that checks

over $10,000 are manually signed by two signators.



Mr. Bill Davies, Dean of College Services at WNCC,

presented the Management Letter for WNCC, which is

filed in the Regents Office. He noted that large

checks are manually signed by two signators.



Mr. Tom Judy, UNR Controller, presented the Management

Letter for UNR, which is filed in the Regents Office.



Ms. Ann Audrain, DRI Controller, presented the Manage-

ment Letter for DRI, which is filed in the Regents

Office.



Mrs. Whitley requested that a System policy regarding

dual check signatures should be developed. Some of the

smaller institutions do not have sufficient staffing

for dual check signatures.



(4) Approved the Foundation Guidelines, as contained in

Ref. A-4, filed in the Regents Office. At the February

19-20, 1987 meeting, the Board directed the Audit Com-

mittee to clarify the administrative and accounting

guidelines for the foundations. Those clarifications

have been made.



Mr. Eardley requested a full report on the relationship

between the foundations and the Board of Regents, in

particular the reporting guidelines.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the report and recommenda-

tions of the Audit Committee. Mrs. Gallagher seconded.

Motion carried.



15. Report and Recommendations of the Budget and Finance

Committee



A report and recommendations of the Budget and Finance Com-

mittee meeting, held April 2, 1987, were made by Regent

(2) Approved establishment of ranges for different ad-

ministration levels so that each individual insti-

tution may develop salaries and/or steps within the

parameters of this plan.



PROPOSED COMMUNITY COLLEGE ADMINISTRATIVE

SALARY PLAN



("A" Contract)

Level Title Salary Range



6 Vice President $54,150 - $62,797

5 Dean 48,735 - 56,517

4 Associate Dean/Assistant Dean 43,862 - 50,866

3 Director III 39,475 - 45,779

2 Director II 35,527 - 41,201

1 Director I 31,975 - 37,081



The proposed plan is based on a survey of salaries,

with the midpoint being the average of salaries. Mrs.

Whitley asked if the salary levels dealt with perform-

ance standards, and was answered in the affirmative.

There will be no salaries given above $62,797. The

criteria for Directors is different on each Campus,

therefore Directors' salaries will be handled individu-

ally on the Campuses. This plan will provide flexibil-

ity for the Community Colleges.



Mrs. Kenney moved approval of the Salary Plan for

Community College Administrators. Mrs. Gallagher

seconded. Motion carried.



(3) Approved the 1987 Summer Session Salary Schedule, which

would require a change in the Handbook, Title 4, Chap-

ter 3, Section 18.1, Summer Session Salary Schedules,

as follows:



1. University of Nevada, Las Vegas



Resident Faculty, based on "B" contract salary, as

follows:



All ranks $800 per credit hour



Visiting Faculty



Full Professor $800 per credit hour

Associate Professor $650 per credit hour

Assistant Professor $600 per credit hour

Unranked/Lecturer $500-700 per credit hour



The per-credit-hour salary is understood to be a

maximum allowable salary. A lower per-credit sal-

ary, when necessitated by low enrollment and when

agreed to by the instructor, is not precluded.



Mrs. Kenney moved approval of the Handbook changes re-

garding Summer Session Salary Schedules at UNLV. Mrs.

Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.

Approved seeking authorization for increased operating budg-

ets for FY 86-87 for UNLV, TMCC and NNCC based on additional

student fees collected during Spring semester due to an in-

crease in enrollment. At UNLV these funds would be used for

part-time faculty in instruction.



UNLV - $400,000

TMCC - $ 40,000

NNCC - $ 10,000



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of authorization for increased

operating budgets for FY 86-87 for UNLV, TMCC and NNCC.

Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



18. Approved Sale of Highland Park Property



Approved the sale of property located in the Highland Park

Industrial Development in Las Vegas, Nevada.



During the time that American Investment Management, Inc.

(AIM) was under contract to the UNS for the investment of

funds, AIM had invested some of these funds in a 70% in-

terest in a strip of property in the Highland Park Industri-

al Park located in Las Vegas, Nevada. A Mr. Montero, who

also contracted with AIM for investment purposes, invested

in the remaining 30% of this property.



However, AIM is no longer in business and the principal

owners of the firm are in bankruptcy. It has been discover-

ed that the UNS title to this property is clouded. A pre-

liminary title search has revealed that there have been

numerous transactions involving this property prior to the

UNS taking an interest in the property, all of which has

confused the issue of who has clear title to the property.

Moreover, Security National Bank, to which one of AIM's

prinicpal owners apparently owed money, has foreclosed on

this property and purchased it under a sheriff's sale. To

further complicate the matter, it appears that the previous

owners of the property, for some reason continuing to be-

lieve that the property was still in their name, rented the

property to Donrey Media, Inc. for the construction of a

large billboard. The principal owners of AIM had filed a

law suit against Donrey Media, Inc. concerning the place-

ment of the billboard. The UNS and Mr. Montero have become

the succeeding parties in interest in this law suit. Final-

ly, back taxes have been accumulating on this property,

which Mr. Montero has been paying.



The UNS has received an offer from Mr. Montero, through his

attorney, to purchase its 70% interest in this property for

$5000. Mr. Montero's offer is made with full knowledge of

the clouded title to the property, as well as with knowledge

of the pending litigation. Mr. Montero feels that he would

be in a better position to resolve this matter if he had

sole interest in the property. The UNS would not be re-

quired to supply a warranty deed, but merely a quit claim

deed for the property.



Given the legal cloud on the title to this property, as well

as the pending litigation, the Chancellor and the General

Counsel believe that it is to the UNS' best interest to

accept this offer.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the sale of Highland Park

property. Mrs. Sheerin seconded. Motion carried.



Mrs. Gallagher left the meeting at this time.



19. Approved Negotiations for System Administration Building



Chancellor Dawson presented a report and recommendations on

the site locations in the greater Reno-Sparks area. The

present System building, located at 405 March Avenue, has

been sold at its appraised value of $540,000. Proceeds will

be applied toward the purchase or building of a larger fa-

cility. One site under consideration is a 20,800 square

foot office complex located at the corner of Arlington Ave-

nue and Plumb Lane. Because that building is larger than

space needed to house the Chancellor's staff, additional

space could be rented to help pay off the loan needed to

purchase the building.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval to begin negotiations on the

property at Arlington Avenue and Plumb Lane which, when

near finalization, will be recommended to the Board, and if

the proposed office complex is not fully leased and rental

income has a shortfall, Regents Special Projects Funds will

be utilized. Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



20. Approved Construction, CCCC



Granted permission for Mr. Claude I. Howard to construct on

the West Charleston Street property, now owned by the Uni-

versity of Nevada Board of Regents, a building that he will

donate to the Board of Regents for the use of Clark County

Community College and the University of Nevada School of

Medicine. The building will service the Area Health Educa-

tion program and will contain clinic facilities to be oper-

ated in conjunction with the School of Medicine. Chancellor

Dawson further requested that for the construction of this

building Mr. Howard be allowed to use funds accumulated in

a Medical School account from the deeds of trusts which were

given by him for the use of the School of Medicine. This

account will contain approximately $490,000 after the com-

pletion of the sale of the North Las Vegas Shopping Center

and after the loan on the Family Practice Clinic is retired.



Chancellor Dawson believes the use of these funds for this

purpose is justified since Mr. Howard plans to duplicate in

Las Vegas the clinic building constructed on the Reno Campus

for the use of the School of Medicine. Mr. Howard will per-

sonally finance costs of construction in excess of these

funds.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the construction at CCCC.

Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



Mrs. Gallagher returned to the meeting at this time.



21. Approved Personnel Changes, DRI



Approved the appointment of Mr. Dale Schulke as Acting Vice

President of DRI, at a salary of $65,000, effective March

16, 1987.



Approved the change of Title for DRI's Controller to Assist-

ant Vice President and Controller, and that Ms. Anne Audrain

be appointed Assistant Vice President and Controller of DRI,

at a salary of $46,000, effective March 16, 1987.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the appointment of Mr. Dale

Schulke as Acting Vice President of DRI, at a salary of

$65,000, effective March 16, 1987, and the change in title

for DRI's Controller to be changed to Assistant Vice Presi-

dent and Controller, and that Ms. Ann Audrain be appointed

to that position at a salary of $46,000, effective March 16,

1987. Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



22. Approved Bond Issue for Building, DRI



Approved seeking legislative authorization for bonding in

the amount of $4.5 million to construct buildings in the

Dandini Research Park. The bond's debt service will come

from indirect cost recovery.



President Hidy explained that DRI will continue to pursue a

private developer to construct the buildings in the Dandini

Research Park which will consolidate DRI's faculty by re-

locating faculty from Stead to the Dandini Research Park.

The $4.5 million is an option to the preferred private de-

veloper. There is no statutory debt limit for UNS, and DRI

will only pursue the bonding if DRI can manage the debt

service.



Mr. Eardley moved approval to seek legislative authorization

for bonding in the amount of $4.5 million for construction

of buildings in the Dandini Research Park. Mrs. Gallagher

seconded. Motion carried.



23. Approved Easements, UNLV



Approved the following easements:



A. A 20-foot wide easement on the Silver Bowl property to

Clark County to place a new sewer line. This new sewer

line will alleviate current sewer problems at the Silver

Bowl and will be paid for by Clark County funds.



B. A 20-foot wide easement to replace the old sewer line

that is presently located on the site of the Thomas Beam

Engineering building. The new sewer line would run im-

mediately east of the Engineering building and would not

interfere with any planned building on the UNLV Campus.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the easements at UNLV.

Mrs. Sheerin seconded. Motion carried.



24. Approved Revisions to Moyer Student Union Constitution, UNLV



Approved the revisions to the Moyer Student Union Constitu-

tion as provided in Ref. C., filed in the Regents Office.

In February the Regents approved in concept that students be

appointed rather than elected to office. This revision is

a result of that action.



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of the revisions to Moyer Stu-

dent Union Constitution at UNLV. Mrs. Sparks seconded.

Motion carried.



25. Approved Bond Issue, UNLV



Approved seeking legislative authorization for bonding in

the amount of $8.8 million to construct dormitories, dining

commons and Greek housing on the UNLV Campus. Debt service

on the bonds will come from revenues charged for using the

facilities.



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval to seek legislative authoriza-

tion for bonding in the amount of $8.8 million to construct

dormitories, dining commons and Greek housing at UNLV. Mrs.

Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.



26. Approved to Lease Land, WNCC



Approved seeking the Governor's approval to lease land in

Fallon to a private developer to construct College class-

rooms and offices. The facility will be a maximum of 7500

square feet, with additional space for 90 parking spaces

and landscaping. The completed facility will then be leased

back by the College by the developer.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval to seek the Governor's approv-

al to lease land in Fallon for the purpose of constructing

College classrooms and offices at WNCC. Mrs. Sheerin sec-

onded. Motion carried.



27. Approved Appointments, UNR



President Crowley presented recommendations for the follow-

ing appointments:



A. Approved the appointment of Dr. Dennis G. Brown as Vice

President for Academic Affairs and Professor of Chemis-

try with tenure at UNR, at a salary of $85,000, effec-

tive July 1, 1987.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the appointment of Dr.

Dennis G. Brown to the position of Vice President for

Academic Affairs and Professor of Chemistry with tenure

at UNR, at a salary of $85,000, effective July 1, 1987.

Mrs. Kenney seconded.



Mr. Eardley requested that the Board review the salaries

and inequities of the current professionals at the in-

stitutions and review the current salary schedules.

Chairman Klaich cautioned the Presidents that salaries

are a major issue in the Legislature and the Legislature

may not grant any raises or any merit increases for Ad-

ministrators.



President Crowley stated that the salary of $85,000 in

administration is in the middle of the national average

of the Arkansas Study, and that this salary is reason-

able within the market-place.



President Hidy supported this appointment, President

Gwaltney urged approval by the Board and President

Meacham stated that our System is very unique in that

Universities and Community Colleges are governed by

the same Board, and he also urged approval. UNR Faculty

Senate Chair Donald Jessup strongly supported the ap-

pointment on behalf of the faculty at UNR.



Motion carried.



B. Approved the appointment of Dr. Jon A. Epps as Dean of

the College of Engineering at UNR, at a salary of

$70,000, effective immediately.



Mr. Eardley moved approval of the appointment of Dr. Jon

A. Epps to the position of Dean of the College of Engi-

neering at UNR, at a salary of $70,000, effective im-

mediately. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.



C. Approved a multi-year contract for the Head Basketball

Coach at UNR.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of a multi-year contract

not to exceed 4 years for the Head Basketball Coach at

UNR. Mr. Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



28. Approved Loan, UNR



Approved a loan of up to $550,000 from the Capital Improve-

ment Funds to equip and furnish the Church Fine Arts addi-

tion. This loan would allow this new addition to be fur-

nished and equipped and put into use at an earlier date.



In the Summer of 1985, a fund-raising campaign was under-

taken to raise funds for the construction of the south half

of the Church Fine Arts music addition and to purchase

equipment and furnishings for both new wings of the build-

ing. At the conclusion of the campaign in January of this

year, more than $2,250,000 in gifts and pleges had been re-

ceived. Of the $629,000 in pledges currently outstanding,

$556,000 is receivable from corporations and foundations and

a significant portion of this is receivable beyond the cur-

rent year. Repayment of the loan would be from the pledges

as they are received.



Mr. Eardley moved approval of the loan of up to $550,000

from the Capital Improvement Funds for equipping and fur-

nishing the Church Fine Arts addition. Mrs. Sparks second-

ed. Motion carried.



President Crowley announced that the dedication of the

Church Fine Arts Redfield Theatre is scheduled for April

24, 1987.



29. Emergency Item: Amendment to Interlocal Agreement, CCCC



President Meacham requested approval to consider an emer-

gency item on the agenda to amend a previously approved

Interlocal Agreement #55-86-05521/619 between the Economic

Security Department and CCCC. The services provided by CCCC

to the JPTA program in the original agreement are now under

way and will be completed prior to the May 14-15, 1987 Board

meeting.



Mrs. Whitley moved to accept an emergency item concerning

the amendment to an Interlocal Agreement at CCCC. Mrs.

Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.



The amendment dealt with program modifications to more prop-

erly meet the needs of the students in the JPTA program.



Mrs. Kenney moved approval of the amendment to the Inter-

local Agreement between the Economic Security Department and

CCCC. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.



30. Emergency Item: Use of Capital Improvewment Projects Funds,

CCCC



President Meacham requested approval to consider an emer-

gency item on the agenda to use certain funds at CCCC.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval to accept an emergency con-

cerning expenditure of item funds at CCCC. Mrs. Sheerin

seconded. Motion carried.



Approved a transfer of $17,000 for CCCC capital construction

project. In 1985 the Legislature approved a capital con-

struction project for CCCC, which has encountered continual

delays. The bids for the project were finally opened on

March 31, 1987, and came in $17,000 over budget. Request

was made to transfer $17,000 from the furniture and equip-

ment item of the budget to construction costs, and to re-

place that with a $17,000 transfer from funds remaining from

a $175,000 classroom remodeling project previously approved

by the Board.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the transfer of $17,000 for

CCCC capital construction project. Mrs. Kenney seconded.

Motion carried.



31. New Business



A. President Maxson announced the death of Mrs. Mary Boyd,

wife of Mr. Sam Boyd, both of whom have been strong

supporters of UNLV. President Maxson requested that

the Chancellor's staff send something on behalf of the

Board to the Boyd family in remembrance of Mrs. Mary

Boyd.



B. President Crowley apologized for the 2 UNR events that

have been scheduled on the same night, 30 miles apart.

The College of Arts and Science is having a reception

at the Governor's Mansion at 6:00 P.M., and the Scripps

Dinner will began at 8:00 P.M. in order to accommodate

the Regents' schedule.



C. Chairman Klaich added his personal comments to the UNLV

Running Rebel Basketball team. He followed the team

with great pride both on and off the court and they have

brought a great deal of attention to the State and they

and proved throughout the season they were winners; they

proved in the Final Four that they can also be gracious

and dignified losers. We appreciate everything they

have done.



The meeting adjourned at 5:55 P.M.
