BOARD OF REGENTS

UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA SYSTEM

April 5, 1979



The Board of Regents met on the above date in the Teacher

Education building, UNLV:



Members present: Mr. James L. Buchanan, II

Mr. Robert A. Cashell

Mrs. Lilly Fong

Mr. Chris Karamanos

Mrs. Molly Knudtsen

Louis E. Lombardi, M. D.

Miss Brenda D. Mason

Mr. John R. Mc Bride

Mr. John Tom Ross



Other present: Chancellor Donald H. Baepler

President William Berg

President Joseph Crowley

President Jack Davis

President Brock Dixon

President Paul Kreider

President Lloyd Smith

Bonnie M. Smotony, Secretary

Larry Lessly, General Counsel



Also present were Senate representatives Boman (Unit), Page

(UNR); Mattson (UNLV); Christopher (CCCC); Blauert (WNCC/N); and

student representatives Neuweiler (UNR); White (UNLV); Braxton

(WNCC/N); Schefcik (USUNS); Schenk (WNCC/S); and Caesar (CCCC).



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Cashell at 9:40 A.M.



1. Adoption of Consent Agenda



Chancellor Baepler recommended approval of the following

items contained on the Consent Agenda (identified as Ref. A

and filed with permanent minutes):



(1) Approval of minutes of regular meeting of February 23,

1979, and special meeting of March 23, 1979.



(2) Acceptance of gifts and grants as included in Ref. C-1.



(3) Approval of Budget Transfers for UNLV and CCCC.



(4) Approval of Estimative Budget for 1980 Moscow Olympic

Course to be offered by UNR.



(5) Approval of 1979 Summer Session budgets for WNCC and

CCCC.



Miss Mason moved approval of the Consent Agenda as present-

ed. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Bride, carried without

dissent.



2. Proposed Change in Admission Requirements, UNLV



President Dixon presented, with his endorsement, a recom-

mendation by the Dean of the Graduate College and the Vice

President for Academic Affairs, for a change in the admis-

sion requirements for the Graduate College, noting that an

undergraduate grade point average of at least 2.5 is now

required. The proposal would amend this to provide as

follows:



An undergraduate grade point average of at least 2.75

or 3.0 in the last two years of undergraduate work or

satisfactory composite scores on the aptitude sections

of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate

Management Admissions Test (GMAT).



Dr. Dixon suggested that raising the admission requirements

in terms of gpa would have little effect on the numbers of

students admitted to the Graduate College, since most appli-

cants already exceed the new threshold. Students who seek

admission to the Graduate College with doubtful undergradu-

ate gpa's may invoke the alternative admission requirement

which is stated in terms of the GRE or GMAT scores. The

provisional student status for people who need to qualify

by means of a trial period will remain available. Chancel-

lor Baepler recommended approval.



Mr. Karamanos moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried with Miss Mason opposing.



Mr. Buchanan entered the meeting at 9:50 A.M.



3. Recruiting Presentation, UNLV



President Dixon commented on the scheduled screening of a

recruiting presentation which has been used by UNLV in the

High School Visitation Program over the past six years. He

described it as a multimedia production, using 3 screens,

3 projectors, sound, music and a tape-controlled series of

images put together with split second timing. The presenta-

tion was favorably received in the schools and before other

Admissions officers. However, he noted, the project is very

expensive, and takes 2 people from the Audio Visual Depart-

ment to present it. Those 2 people spend a total of 47 man

days in presentation and a total of 25 man days in prepara-

tion each year.



Dr. Dixon pointed out that the executive budget now before

the Legislature projects the loss of 2.5 FTE classified peo-

ple in the Audio Visual Department, making it necessary to

cancel this heavy commitment to the recruiting effort. Dif-

ferent, and cheaper, ways will have to be found to meet the

recruiting needs of Admissions. Therefore, since the pres-

entation which was scheduled to be shown will have to be

discontinued, Dr. Dixon suggested that it would not be

profitable to take the Board's time for viewing it.



4. Status Report on UNLV Radio Station Project



CSUN President Chuck White reported that the construction

permit for the UNLV radio station had been received the pre-

vious week from the FCC, noting that planning for this proj-

ect had been underway for 11 years. Mr. White expressed his

appreciation for the help given to the application process

by members of the Board of Regents and the Nevada Congres-

sional Delegation. He also noted the assistance which had

been received from Tommy Walker, a radio consultant hired

by CSUN.



Tommy Walker commented briefly on the status of the radio

station, pointing out that the project will be funded en-

tirely from the $2.40 credit hour fee allocated from CSUN,

and part of the equipment is on order. It is anticipated

that the station can start transmitting in September.



5. Proposed Sale of Property, UNLV



Chancellor Baepler noted that the University owns a small,

triangular piece of property adjacent to UNLV, consisting of

0.198 acres, which is not considered usable by the Univer-

sity. A plot plan and legal description was included with

the agenda (identified as Ref. B and filed with permanent

minutes). Dr. Baepler reported that Nevada Savings and Loan

Association has indicated an interest in purchasing this

property to provide access from Swenson Avenue to a proposed

apartment development.



Chancellor Baepler recommended the described property be of-

fered for sale, in accordance with State Law, and that bids

be submitted for consideration by the Board at a subsequent

meeting.



Objection to the use of this property for this purpose was

offered by Mrs. Fong because she feared that use as an ac-

cess would be unsightly. Mr. Buchanan objected to sale of

any land owned by the University regardless of its size or

whether it is considered usable by the University.



Mr. Karamanos moved that the land not be sold, but that

Nevada Savings and Loan Association be offered a revocable

easement for consideration. Motion seconded by Mr.

Buchanan, carried without dissent.



6. Report on Feasibility of Intercollegiate Athletics, CCCC



President Kreider requested that his scheduled report be

withdrawn and rescheduled for the May meeting.



7. Allocation from Board of Regents Special Projects Account



President Crowley requested an allocation of $26,500 from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Account to purchase

40 acres of land at the northern boundary of Little Valley

which is held in the Estate of Robert T. Adams. The pur-

chase price is based on a recently completed appraisal of

the land ($25,000 for the land, plus a 5% commission).

Purchase of this property will expand the University's

holdings in this area and will further protect the integ-

rity of Little Valley.



Chancellor Baepler recommended approval of the acquisition

of this property at the appraisal price of $25,000, plus a

5% commission, to be funded by an allocation of $26,500 from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Account.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



8. Postretirement Appointment, UNR



President Crowley recommended approval of a postretirement

appointment for Vice President Edward L. Pine for 1979-80.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



9. Special Events Center, UNR



President Crowley reported that following completion of the

Feasibility Study for the UNR Special Events Center in Jan-

uary, five local architectural firms were invited to submit

proposals in regard to the design and construction of the

Center. Four proposals were received and were evaluated by

a review committee and each firm made an oral presentation

to the committee. Dr. Crowley recommended, on the basis of

these proposals and presentations, that the following firms

be nominated to the Public Works Board from which the proj-

ect architect for the Special Events Center would be

selected:



1. Dolven, Larson, Daniels (Crain/Anderson, Inc. of

Houston, Texas, as principal consultants).



2. Casazza, Peetz & Associates (Fowler, Ferguson, Kingston

and Ruben of Salt Lake City, Utah, as principal

consultants).



Chancellor Baepler recommended approval.



Mr. Ross moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried without dissent.



10. Investment Advisory Committee Membership



Chairman Cashell reported that Mr. Mc Bride had offered his

resignation as a member of the Investment Advisory Committee

and had recommended to the Chairman that in recognition of

Mrs. Fong's previous service and continuing interest in the

Committee, she be considered as a replacement. Mr. Cashell

noted that Mrs. Fong had been consulted and had agreed to

the appointment; accordingly, effective with this meeting

he was appointing Mrs. Fong as a member of the Investment

Advisory Committee.



Mrs. Fong stated that she had changed her mind and did not

wish the appointment to the Investment Advisory Committee,

preferring to serve on the Audit Committee which was under

consideration.



At the Chairman's request, Mr. Mc Bride withdrew his res-

ignation from the Investment Advisory Committee.



11. Grants-in-Aid for Rogan Children



It was recalled that in 1978, Mr. Buchanan had requested

consideration of the dedication of grants-in-aid for the

children of James Rogan, a Las Vegas police officer killed

while on duty. It was specifically proposed that the Board

dedicate a sufficient number of grants-in-aid for tuition

and registration fees for the benefit of these children, to

be made available for attendance at any Division of the

University of Nevada for an equivalent of eight semesters.

Action by the Board was deferred at the Chancellor's request

to allow further review by the Administration, and to exam-

ine the concept of this type of grant-in-aid.



Mr. Buchanan had requested that this matter be included on

the agenda for consideration by the Board; however, based on

advice of Counsel that the Board of Regents could not bind a

future Board by dedicating grants-in-aid in this manner, Mr.

Buchanan withdrew his request and, as an alternative, moved

that the Board memorialize the Regents at such time as any

of the Rogan children might apply for admission to any Uni-

versity of Nevada institution to give favorable considera-

tion to award of a grant-in-aid for tuition and registration

fees. Motion seconded by Mr. Karamanos, carried without

dissent.



12. Board of Regents Out-of-State Travel Account



Chancellor Baepler requested an allocation of $2,000 from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Account to augment

the Board's out-of-state travel account, to fund travel by

Regents attending the National Conference on Trusteeship

sponsored by the Association of Governing Boards.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Mason,

carried without dissent.



13. Proposed Amendment to Board of Regents Bylaws



Chancellor Baepler recalled that in February, the Board

agreed to consider in April certain amendments to their

Bylaws concerning the required notice time for meetings of

the Investment Committee, and to define the responsibilities

of that Committee in accordance with advice of Counsel. The

Board further agreed to consider in May certain changes to

conform the Bylaws to provisions of the Open Meeting Law.



Dr. Baepler further noted that subsequent to that time, Mr.

Mc Bride had requested an additional amendment to the Bylaws

to establish an Audit Committee as a standing committee of

the Board.



Chancellor Baepler proposed that the Board accept, on first

reading, the following amended Article IV of the Bylaws,

incorporating the amendments introduced in February and the

amendment required to establish an Audit Committee:



Section 1. The Board shall have the following standing

committees: the Investment Committee and the

Audit Committee.



Section 2. A standing committee shall consist of at least

three persons who are elected members of the

Board and may have not more than two persons as

advisory members who are not elected members of

the Board and who possess special knowledge,

skills and experience in a related field.



A standing committee shall meet as directed by

the Board or when called by the Chairman of the

committee.



Notice of meetings shall be furnished to all

members of a standing committee by the committee

Chairman or the Secretary of the Board at least

three days in advance of the meeting. All

meetings of the committee shall be called and

held in compliance with the provisions of NRS

Chapter 241.



A majority of the membership of the committee

shall constitute a quorum to transact business;

however, a vote of at least two of the Board

members shall be required for action by the

committee.



Committee members and the Chairman of the com-

mittee shall be appointed by the Chairman of

the Board for a term of two years, or until

the next organizational meeting of the Board.



Section 3. The Investment Committee shall have the follow-

ing areas of responsibility:



a. The formulation and recommendation for ap-

proval by the Board of appropriate invest-

ment policies to govern the investment

program of the University.



b. The recommendation for approval by the Board

of investment and reinvestment transactions

within the limits of the investment policies

approved by the Board of Regents.



Section 4. The Audit Committee shall have the following

areas of responsibility:



a. To provide assistance to the Board in

fulfilling its fiduciary responsibilities

relating to accounting and reporting

practices, and



b. To maintain, by way of regularly scheduled

meetings, a direct line of communications

between the Board and the independent audi-

tors to provide for exchange of views and

information.



c. In fulfilling these responsibilities, the

audit committee shall:



(1) recommend to the Board a firm of indep-

endent certified public accountants

which shall audit the financial books

and records of the University;



(2) review and evaluate reports prepared by

the independent auditors concerning the

University's internal accounting and

management controls and make recommen-

dations to the Board for appropriate

action; and



(3) review the annual financial statements

with the independent auditors.



Mr. Buchanan moved that the proposed amendment be accepted

on first reading. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Bride, carried

without dissent.



14. Allocation of Grants-in-Aid



NRS 396.540 provides for tuition waivers to "students from

other states and foreign countries, not to exceed a number

equal to 3% of the total matriculated enrollment of students

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

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

dents for the payment of in-state registration fees.



Based on enrollment figures for Fall, 1978, Chancellor

Baepler recommended the following distribution of grants-

in-aid for 1979-80:

16. Proposed Sale of Stock, UNR



President Crowley reported that in 1978, a gift of 2,000

shares of Gannett stock, valued at the time of transfer at

$88,000, was made to UNR for the sole benefit of the Oral

History Project. This gift of stock was matched by a

$10,000 grant from Gannett Foundation.



Dr. Crowley presented, with his endorsement, a request from

the Director of the Oral History Project that the stock be

sold and the funds invested, with the income plus capital

used to employ a half-time professional and a full-time

classified employee. He estimated that there would be

sufficient funds to provide this additional staff for the

Project for seven to ten years.



Chancellor Baepler recommended approval of the sale of the

stock and use of the capital and income from the investment

as requested.



Mr. Ross moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Buchanan,

carried without dissent.



17. Nomination of Architects for Phase IV of Medical School, UNR



President Crowley recommended the following firms be nomi-

nated to the State Public Works Board from which a project

architect for Phase IV of the Medical School would be

selected:



1. Anshen and Allen

2. MBT Associates



Dr. Crowley noted that each of the above firms has had wide

experience in designing and building specialized labora-

tories and medical facilities. Chancellor Baepler concurred

in the nominations.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



18. Request for Authorization to Issue Revenue Bonds, UNR



President Crowley recommended that a request be made to the

State Legislature for approval to issue $2 million in reve-

nue bonds for completion of College Inn Continuing Education

Center. He estimated a proposed project cost of $3,991,000,

and introduced Mr. Walter Larson, of the firm of Dolven &

Larson, who presented the report of a feasibility study just

completed.



Dr. Crowley reported that the University had received a

pledge from the John Shaw Field Foundation for $1 million.

Sale of the proposed $2 million in revenue bonds would pro-

vide matching funds for 75% of the total amount required,

with the remainder to be raised from private sources. De-

tails of the bonding information were included with the

agenda (identified as Ref. D and filed with permanent

minutes).



Mr. Ross objected to the use of revenue from Stead apart-

ments as a part of the funding for these bonds.



Dr. Crowley pointed out that over the years the University

has provided a great deal of money to keep the Stead Campus

alive and now that the Job Corps contract is returning some

revenue to the University, he did not believe it was out of

order to utilize some of these revenues to benefit other

parts of the University. He also noted that it is antici-

pated that within a period of five to six years, the revenue

generated by the College Inn itself will be sufficient to

cover the entire revenue bond. Dr. Crowley also pointed out

that it will be very difficult for the University to raise

private money for this purpose unless it can be demonstrated

that the University can make some sort of commitment toward

the development of the project.



Mr. Ross moved that the recommendation not be approved,

and suggested that further consideration be given only if

evidence can be shown that the National College of the

Judiciary, or the National Council of Juvenile and Family

Court Judges will lease space and the revenue from those

leases can then be used as funding for a revenue bond.

Motion seconded by Mr. Buchanan, carried by the following

roll call vote:



Yes - Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Cashell, Mrs. Fong, Miss Mason,

Mr. Ross

No - Mr. Karamanos, Mrs. Knudtsen, Dr. Lombardi, Mr.

Mc Bride



19. Presentation of Final Drawings, Dickinson Library Addition,

UNLV



Final drawings for the Dickinson Library addition were pre-

sented by Mr. Robert Fielden of Jack Miller & Associates.

This project, which has a construction budget of $5,596,000

and a furnishings and equipment budget of $546,000, includes

the addition of approximately 60,000 net square feet to

the existing library as well as remodeling of the existing

structure and site development work surrounding the facil-

ity. Funding for the project is as follows:



Higher Educational Capital Construction Fund $1,827,000

Capital Improvement Fee Revenue Bonds 5,100,000

Total $6,927,000



Mr. Fielden stated that the project was ready to go to bid,

and within the budget, with a final construction estimate of

$5,116,000. He also noted that the vault storage units to

be placed on the ground floor of the existing building will

be bid on a unit basis as an additive alternate in order

that as many of the units as possible can be realized out of

the construction monies left over from the project.



President Dixon and Chancellor Baepler recommended approval

of the final drawings and authorization to proceed to bid.



Mr. Karamanos moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



20. Report on Structural Condition of the Oats Park School

Building



President Davis reported that a letter had been received by

the Churchill County School District, from which WNCC leases

space in the Oats Park School building in Fallon, stating

that in the opinion of the consulting engineers retained by

Churchill County School District to provide a preliminary

code and cost analysis for restoration of that building, the

building is not structurally safe should an earthquake occur

in the Fallon area, considered to be in the high risk zone

for earthquakes. The letter further stated that "Churchill

County School District does not have liability insurance to

cover Western Nevada Community College as lessee of Oats

Park School. The continued use of Oats Park School by West-

ern Nevada Community College will have to be at your own

risk, as the Churchill County School District cannot provide

for personal injury and property damage incurred because of

the structural condition of the Oats Park School building."



Dr. Davis requested that some determination be made with the

University's insurance carriers concerning extension of in-

surance until the end of the semester on May 16.



Chancellor Baepler pointed out that the Board has been put

on notice that the College has students occupying a building

that has been declared unsafe in the event of an earthquake.

To what degree you remove yourself from liability by seeking

to obtain insurance is a legal question.



Mr. Lessly recommended that the county building authority be

asked to inspect the building and give the University a cer-

tificate of occupancy if it is determined by that authority

that it is safe for the purposes for which the College is

using it. He pointed out that the report before the Board

is one provided to the Churchill County School District from

a private engineering firm and is not from the governmental

authority charged with making that determination.



Mr. Buchanan moved that until the building is designated

safe by the Churchill County Building Department and a cer-

tificate of occupancy is issued, no further classes be of-

fered in the Oats Park School building by WNCC. Motion

seconded by Mr. Mc Bride, carried without dissent.



21. Proposal for Honorary Degrees and Distinguished Nevadan

Awards



Mr. Buchanan presented, as a joint nomination from southern

Regents, the following awards to be presented by UNLV at its

May 19 commencement:



Distinguished Nevadan Awards to Mr. Artimus Ham, Jr.,

Judge Addelair Guy, and former State Senator B. Mahlon

Brown, and an honorary degree to Dr. Bart Bok, who has

agreed to be the Commencement speaker.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval of the above nominations. Mo-

tion seconded by Mr. Karamanos, carried without dissent.



Mr. Ross moved that the Board go into personnel session for

the purpose of discussing the nominees for awards at

Commencement. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong.



Mr. Mc Bride moved that the motion also include the discus-

sion of tenure recommendations. Motion to amend seconded

by Mr. Buchanan carried without dissent.



Amended motion then carried without dissent.



Following a personnel session, the Board reconvened in regular

session.



Discussion resumed on Item 21, Proposal for Honorary Degrees and

Distinguished Nevadan Awards



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval of the following awards at

Commencement at UNR on May 19, 1979:



Fred M. Anderson, M. D., Doctor of Medical Sciences

Irving J. Sandorf, Doctor of Engineering

Dorothy E. Benson, Distinguished Nevadan

Claude Howard, Distinguished Nevadan

Rollan Melton, Distinguished Nevadan



Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without dissent.
