2. Report on Investment Committee



On October 27, 1983, the Board appointed an Investment Com-

mittee to select and work with a consulting firm to review

the method currently in use for the UNS Endowment Pool.

Subsequently, the firm of Cambridge and Associates was

hired and has been meeting with the Committee. Development

Director Edna Brigham introduced Mr. Matt Lincoln of Cam-

bridge and Associates and Dr. Peter Bing of the University

of Nevada's Medical School Advisory Board.



Edna S. Brigham, Chairman of the ad hoc Investment Commit-

tee, reported that as a result of the dissatisfaction which

the Regents expressed with the investment performance of

the endowment pool at their September meeting, she was asked

to conduct a study of the investment guidelines and proce-

dures. She further reported that she came to the October

meeting with recommendations (1) that the Regents appoint

an ad hoc investment planning committee and (2) that Cam-

bridge Associates be employed to work with the Investment

Committee to review and revise the investment guidelines

and objectives, to draft a request for proposal to be sent

to all present money managers and to various other manage-

ment firms to manage the endowed pool in accordance with the

newly drafted guidelines and objectives, and to provide the

necessary data to permit the Investment Committee to make

an objective selection of a manager or managers to be pre-

sented to the Regents for their consideration.



Mrs. Brigham reported that the minutes of the October meet-

ing reflected that Regent Fong moved approval of these

recommendations, that Regent Gallagher seconded the motion,

and that the motion carried.



Subsequently, Chairman Mc Bride appointed to the Investment

Committee Regents June Whitley and Dan Klaich, then Vice

Chancellor for Finance Mark Dawson, System Controller Janet

Mac Donald and Peter S. Bing, M. D., public member with Mrs.

Brigham as Chair. The charge to this Committee was that its

only objective be the determination of the best possible

management system for the University endowed pool, and that

such determination be made without political judgements or

considerations.



Throughout the study, the Investment Committee worked with

Cambridge Associates, a firm that provides investment and

financial research and consulting services to privately

endowed Universities and other nonprofit institutions

throughout the country. Its clients represent over 1/2 of

of the educational endowment assets listed by NACUBO.



The firm does not itself manage funds nor does it have cli-

ients who do; its only clients are the University and non-

profit institutions whom it advises. It does not receive

any fee, gratuity or remuneration of any kind from any of

the managers whom they might recommend to any of their

clients.



Mr. Mathew Lincoln of Cambridge Associates presented to the

Regents the Investment Planning Committee Planning Committee

recommendations which included the proposed statement of

investment objectives and policies, the nominal and infla-

tion-adjusted market value of the endowment, the expected

real investment returns given various asset allocation

ratios, the profiles of the investment management candi-

dates, the list of candidates responding to the request

for proposal, the selection criteria, the proposed question-

naire, the profiles of managers recommended by the Invest-

ment Committee and the recommended asset allocation.



Dr. Peter S. Bing expressed the optimistic view that with

the potential for growth in the State of Nevada, it is in-

evitable that the endowment will multiply many times in the

years ahead, and that it is, therefore, imperative that the

University have in place a system for managing these funds

and mechanisms for answering the many questions that come

with gifts to a University.



Mrs. Brigham asked for approval of the proposed Statement

of Investment Objectives and Policies as contained in Ref.

B, and filed with the permanent minutes, and that in addi-

tion, the Board allow the Investment Committee to insert

specific directions to each recommended manager. She also

asked that the Board accept the Investment Planning Com-

mittee's recommendation to employ Sanford C. Berstein & Co.,

Inc., a value oriented manager, to manage approximately

$12,000,000 of the present endowed pool, First Interstate

Investment Advisers of Nevada, Inc., a market timing ori-

ented manager, to manage approximately $5,000,000 of the

present endowed pool, and Treynor-Arbit Associates, an

opportunistically oriented manager to manager approximately

$5,000,000 of the present endowed pool.



Mr. Klaich, the appointed liaison on the investment project,

explained that while Mrs. Brigham had made the above recom-

mendations on distribution of the endowment pool, that it

must be understood that certain donors would make bequests

to be used for specific programs and/or to be used in a

specific manner, and that these wishes would be strictly

adhered to and would not be added to this pool.



Further, he explained that the Committee had chosed 1) a

value oriented manager who would invest at a better than

average rate of return, which will be the bulk of the pool

(Sanford C. Berstein & Co.); 2) a timer (First Interstate

Investment Advisers) to be certain the investments don't

get caught at the bottom rate of return; and 3) a firm

that aims at those investments yielding a high rate of

return (Treynor-Arbit Associates). With this mix, the

Committee feels the UNS endowment pool will be managed to

the maximum return for the Sytstem.



In addition, he directed the Board to study the documents

(Ref. B) which outline how the gift incomes were spent.

The investment guidelines are guaranteed to provide maxi-

mum dollars with the pool and still have it grow at maxi-

mum rates. It will be necessary for this Board to continue

fund raising efforts to increase this fund. Regent Klaich

stated that in continuing in this responsible manner, this

Board can be extremely proud of its responsible contribu-

tion to the System for future generations and will not be

criticized for the same type of fiscal irresponsibility as

has been suffered from prior Boards.



It was also pointed out that annual reports will be made to

the Board and that if adjustments are necessary to these

policies they can be made in a responsible manner to endure

maximum benefit.



The Investment Committee will review those sections in the

Bylaws which speak to the managing of endowments, and, if

necessary, will bring forth any needed changes to incorpo-

rate into them these new procedures.



Ms. Del Papa moved to accept the report with the proviso

that the same Investment Committee continue until replaced

by a permanent Committee. Mr. Klaich seconded.



(Because Mrs. Whitley had expressed a desire to be present

for this particular item, the vote was delayed until she

arrived later in the meeting.)



Upon roll call vote, the motion carried.



Yes - Regents Del Papa, Kenney, Klaich, Sheerin,

Whitley, Mc Bride

No - Regents Fong, Karamanos

Abstain - Regent Gallagher



3. Approved the Reconsideration of the Capital Improvement Plan

for 1985-89



At the February, 1984 meeting the Board adopted a Capital

Improvement Plan in two phases, one for all Campuses and a

second containing the request for a new engineering build-

ing at UNLV. It was requested that the Board incorporate

these two into a single plan which is filed in the permanent

minutes as Ref. O.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the consolidated Capital

Improvement Plan for 1985-89. Mrs. Fong seconded. Motion

carried.

responded by informing Mr. Klaich that the problems with

which the Office of Admissions and Records is faced will be

a priority when the MIS comes on line.



He also questioned the report on the System Computing Center

security and requested a written report be submitted to the

Board on these security problems.



Mrs. Sheerin requested a reponse to the Kafoury Armstrong

report submitted at the last meeting and was informed that

the Presidents will be reporting at a meeting in the near

future.



11. Approved Resolutions



Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks requested approval of the follow-

ing resolutions:



RESOLUTION #84-4



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada Controller's Office

invests the surplus operating cash of the University of

Nevada System; and



WHEREAS, the float in UNS bank accounts is invested but

it is costly to maintain sufficient investment flexi-

bility to guarantee cash demands which are not consis-

tently predictable or controllable: and



WHEREAS, a line of credit with the UNS bank, Nevada

National Bank, will provide the UNS with the flexibility

required for an effective cash management program; and



WHEREAS, the line of credit will be used only to cover

very short term aberrations in UNS cash demands; and



WHEREAS, the Vice Chancellor for Finance is authorized

to enter into a $500,000 line of credit agreement with

Nevada National Bank; NOW THEREFORE BE IT



RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada System authorizes the establishment of a Line of

Credit with Nevada National Bank for the purpose of pro-

viding investment flexibility in its cash management

program.



RESOLUTION #84-5



WHEREAS, the Chancellor is the Chief Executive Officer

and Treasurer of the University of Nevada System; and



WHEREAS, in the Chancellor's performance of the Treasur-

er's duties, bank accounts must be established as neces-

sary for the University of Nevada System to conduct its

business; and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada System authorizes the Chancellor to establish as

necessary for conducting business, imprest zero balance

checking accounts for the institutional accounting of-

fices and business center payroll accounts at the same

bank where the Board of Regents general account is main-

tained; and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada System authorizes the Chancellor to designate the

staff members authorized to sign checks for disbursement

of funds from institutional or business center imprest

zero balance checking accounts; NOW THEREFORE BE IT



RESOLVED, that the Chancellor establish imprest zero

balance checking accounts and designate signature au-

thority for all such University of Nevada System ac-

counts at the same bank as the Board of Regents general

account.



Chairman Mc Bride relinquished the gavel to Vice Chairman Dorothy

Gallagher.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the resolutions until such time

as the System again goes to bid for these services. Ms. Del

Papa seconded. Motion carried. Mrs. Gallagher abstained.



Chairman Mc Bride returned and resumed the gavel.



(It was at this point that Mrs. Whitley entered the meeting and,

after a brief discussion, the roll call vote for Item 3 above

was taken.)



12. Approved Phase I, A. A. S. Degree, Geotechnical Science,

NNCC



Approved the Phase I proposal for an A. A. S. Degree in

Geotechnical Science at Northern Nevada Community College.

See Ref. D, filed in the Regents Office.



This program will prepare students for technical careers

in the mining industry in exploration, development and

mining. As Northeastern Nevada is today the leading gold

producer in the country, NNCC will be able to serve its

constituencies by providing trained students for employ-

ment in this industry. A recent survey had indicated a

need of from 8-10 graduates per year.



In the first year of implementation, it is expected 5 FTE

students will enroll in the program, increasing to 12 FTE

by the 4th year. Additional students may take these courses

without declaring a Geotechnical Science major.



The first year budget total is $37,500, which includes one

faculty and one lab assistant. Dean Charles Greenhaw re-

ported that NNCC would not be requesting the $12,000 for the

initial equipment as previously requested. Estimated 4th

year allocation is $34,350. Existing funds will support the

program, except for the initial equipment request.



This program has a proposed date of initiation of Fall, 1984

and will provide needed graduates in the mining field who

will be prepared to work with mining engineers, surveyors,

drillers, assayers and geologists.



3 new courses will be offered, in addition to regular sci-

ence and math offerings.



This degree does not duplicate other programs within the

System. However, because of specific requirements and

specialization in the 2nd year, students transferring into

a B. S. program in Geological Science would most likely

enter as a Sophomore.



The Academic Affairs Council and Vice Chancellor Fox con-

curred in recommending approval of the Phase I proposal.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of Phase I, A. A. S. Degree,

Geotechnical Science at NNCC. Ms. Del Papa seconded.

Motion carried.



13. Approved Phase I, Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre, UNR



Approved the Phase I proposal for a B. F. A. Degree in

Theatre. See Ref. E, filed in the Regents Office.



This program will offer a pre-professional degree, which is

an alternative to the current Bachelor of Arts degree in

Speech and Theatre and will provide a more rigorous and

specialized program oriented toward career preparation.



The recent UNR Comprehensive Program Review has designated

Theatre as a Center for Excellence, and this proposed al-

ternative undergraduate degree will significantly strengthen

this program.



The program will be selective, in that only highly qualified

students will be admitted. 1st year enrollment is estimated

at 4 FTE, increasing to 15 FTE by the 4th year.



The proposal does not require additional funding for imple-

mentation, as faculty and facilities are already in place.

The proposed date of initiation is Fall, 1985.



Offering a degree with a more professional orientation

should improve employment opportunities for graduates. In

addition, the overall Theatre curriculum would be enhanced,

which would in turn strengthen the existing B. A. in Speech

and Theatre.



Currently, UNLV offers a B. A. in Theatre Arts, but no

B. F. A. is offered. The Academic Affairs Council has

determined that because of the specialization and limited

size of this proposed program, the Phase I should be ap-

proved.



No articulation problems are anticipated with other programs

in the University of Nevada System. Vice Chancellor Fox and

Dr. Thomas Prewitt from UNLV's Theatre Arts Department rec-

ommended approval.



Ms. Del Papa moved approval of the Phase I, Bachelor of Fine

Arts in Theatre at UNR. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion

carried.



14. Approved the Request to Interim Finance Committee, DRI



Approved to present a request to the Interim Finance Commit-

tee for $45,000 per year for 1983-84 and 1984-85 for main-

tenance of equipment used in the Atmospheric Sciences Center

weather program. This equipment, much of which was purchas-

ed with State funds, is used for specific information on

weather conditions, water supply forecasts and snow and ava-

lanch conditions in the Northern Sierra area. See Ref. F,

filed in the Regents Office.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval to present a request to the

Interim Finance Committee. Mrs. Fong seconded. Motion

carried.



15. Approved the Sale of Property, DRI



Approved the sale of two adjacent parcels of land totaling

60 acres in San Bernardino County, which was acquired by

gift for the benefit of the Desert Research Institute.



An adjacent property owner, J. S. Morrill, has offered to

purchase this land at full appraised value, $60,000, per a

University obtained appraisal dated February 17, 1984.



There being no institutional use of this property planned

in the foreseeable future, Deputy Chancellor Dawson recom-

mended approval. General Counsel Klasic having reviewed the

proposed terms, had no legal objection to the transaction.



Ms. Del Papa moved approval to sell DRI's 60 acres of land

in San Bernardino County. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion

carried.



16. Approved the Staff Development Proposal, CCCC



CCCC approved the staff development proposed entitled

"Computer Literacy for Computer Competency: A High Tech

Staff Development Proposal" as contained in Ref. G, filed

in the Regents Office.



Deputy Chancellor Dawson recommended approval with the com-

ment that should this prove successful it could be used as

a model for other Campuses.



Mr. Mc Bride commended CCCC on their innovation in estab-

lishing this program.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the Staff Development Pro-

posal, CCCC. Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



17. Approved to Spend Federal Funds for Equipment, UNR



Authorized the use of federal funds to purchase new equip-

ment for the Agriculture Experiment Station as described in

Ref. H, filed in the Regents Office. The use of these funds

would augment the Agriculture Experiment station spending

plan and requires approval not only of the Regents, but the

State Board of Examiners and the Interim Finance Committee

as well.



Mr. Klaich moved approval to spend federal funds for equip-

ment, UNR. Mrs. Fong seconded. Motion carried.



18. Approved the Exchange of Land Deeds, UNR



Approved an exchange of deeds for right-of-way which will

allow the straightening of a section of roadway (Kimlick

Lane), which is the only access road to the University

Dairy.



This is a joint project between the College of Agriculture,

UNR, City of Reno and the County of Washoe to straighten out

Kimlick Lane by removing 4 hazardous curves. The University

is deeding a portion of right-of-way to the county and the

county is signing a quit-claim deed to the University for

the abandoned roadway and right-of-way. The City of Reno

will provide all the design and construction work for the

new road.



Kimlock Lane is the only access road to the University

Dairy, the eastern side of the Main Station Field Lab and

the Reno-Sparks Joint Wastewater Treatment facility. Large

trucks have had difficulty negotiating the hazardous curves

during inclement weather. This property exchange will bene-

fit all parties.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the exchange of land deeds

by UNR, City of Reno and Washoe County. Mrs. Fong seconded.

Motion carried.



19. Approved Allocation of Grants-in-Aid for 1984-85



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 past preceding Fall semester." Board policy pro-

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

dents for the payment of in-state registration fees.



Based on enrollment figures for Fall, 1983, the officers

requested the following allocation of grants-in-aid for

Fall, 1984-85:



In-State Out-of-State

UNR



Athletics 100 100

Music 40 25

Foreign 0 15*

Other (General) 128 128

Total 268 268



*30 1/2 awards



UNLV



Athletics 136 136

Music 81 81

Other 56 56

Total 273 273



CCCC 105

NNCC 17

TMCC 69

WNCC 29



Board policy also provides for a separate category of

grants-in-aid for Nevada resident Native Americans. The

officers recommended the following allocation of Native

American grants-in-aid for 1984-85:



UNR 20

UNLV 10

CCCC 10

NNCC 15

TMCC 5

WNCC 11



Mr. Klaich requested a report from UNLV regarding foreign

students.



Ms. Del Papa moved approval of the allocation of grants-in-

aid for 1984-85 with the exception that the term "Indians"

be changed in the Handbook to "Native Americans". Mr.

Klaich seconded. Motion carried.



20. Personnel Session



Upon motion by Mrs. Fong, seconded by Ms. Del Papa, the

Board moved to a closed personnel session for the purpose

of discussing personnel of the University of Nevada System.



The Chairman reconvened the Board in public session at 1:45 P.M.

All Regents present with the exception of Mrs. Whitley.



Dr. Allen Mori introduced UNLV's newly elected Faculty Senate

Chair, Dr. Myrlene La Mancuso.



Mr. Michael Hardie, WNCC Faculty Senate Chair, reported on the

AACJC Conference held in Washington, D. C., March 31, 1984.



21. Approved the Distribution for Professional Salary Increase,

UNS



The 1983 Legislature provided a trigger mechanism for salary

increases effective July 1, 1984, if state funds become

available.



Deputy Chancellor Dawson proposed that the Board of Regents

adopt a policy granting across-the-board increases for 1984-

85 to all UNS professional employees, except for those sal-

aries which will be retained at the 1983-84 level by the

President of each institution. The increase would be equal

to the percentage increase provided by the trigger mechan-

ism.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the distribution for Pro-

fessional Salary Increases, UNS. Ms. Del Papa seconded.

Motion carried.



22. Approved Institution Bylaws



In February, 1983 the Board adopted Resolution #83-2 which

required that each institution review its Bylaws in conform-

ity with the UNS Code, which was also adopted at that time.

In May, 1983 the Resolution was amended to allow the Campus-

es ample time for the revision process to be accomplished,

with the deadline for presentation for Board consideration

at this meeting. The revised Bylaws for NNCC were adopted

by the Board in December, 1983.



The following institutions have submitted their Bylaws for

Board consideration:



A. President Meacham submitted the CCCC Bylaws (see Ref.

I), filed in the Regents Office. He stated that there

is still a need for some fine tuning with the Bylaws

and he had informed CCCC faculty that the Board is

willing to reconsider some portion of the Code. The

Board agreed that once all institution Bylaws are sub-

mitted and approved, that conversation would begin on

those areas Campuses found were unworkable.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of CCCC Bylaws. Mrs.

Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.



B. Dean Michelle Dondero submitted the WNCC Bylaws, filed

in the Regents Office. Mr. Hardie commended Dean

Dondero and Mr. Don Belfi for the compromises made in

the Bylaws. Mr. Klaich and Mrs. Gallagher also com-

mended WNCC on the cooperation among the staff in com-

pleting their Bylaws.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of WNCC Bylaws. Mrs.

Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



C. Mrs. Rita Gubanich submitted the TMCC Bylaws, Ref. J,

filed in the Regents Office. Faculty Senate Chair Mary

Ann Lambert stated that she hoped the Board would again

look at certain sections of the Code.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of TMCC Bylaws. Mrs.

Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



D. Acting President Kocmond submitted the DRI Bylaws, Ref.

K, filed in the Regents Office. General Counsel Klasic

has reviewed the proposed DRI Bylaws and recommended

their approval by the Board of Regents with the 3 cor-

rections stated in the attached memorandum of March 8,

1984 (see Ref. L, filed in the Regents Office).



Mr. Klaich moved approval of DRI Bylaws. Ms. Del Papa

seconded. Motion carried.



E. Chancellor Bersi submitted the Unit Bylaws, Ref. M,

filed in the Regents Office.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Unit Bylaws. Ms. Del

Papa seconded. Motion carried.



23. Approved Student Association Bylaws



In June, 1983 Student Officers were requested to review

Bylaws and/or Constitutions and to present for adoption

needed changes to conform with accountability requirements.



It was determined that the Bylaws and/or Constitutions for

student governments at CCCC and TMCC would need no revision.



Approved the WNCC United Student Association Constitution

as contained in Ref. N, filed in the Regents Office.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of WNCC United Student Associ-

ation Constitution. Ms. Del Papa seconded. Motion carried.



Mrs. Gallagher directed the Presidents to instruct their

Colleges and Department Bylaws to adhere to the institu-

tional Bylaws and the Code.



ASUN and CSUN were instructed to submit their Bylaws and/or

Constitutions to the General Counsel for review and then

submission to the Board for approval. Mr. Bill Siegel an-

nounced that ASUN Bylaws should be forthcoming at the May

meeting.



24. Report of 5-Year Plans for Athletics, UNR and UNLV



At the Regents meeting of January 12, 1984, at the request

of the ad hoc Committees on Athletics, President Goodall

and President Crowley presented reports on the implementa-

tion of Regents Athletic policies adopted in May, 1983.

They were further requested to present to the Board of

Regents 5-Year Plans for Athletics.



A. President Crowley, in submitting this report to the

Board, stated that the Intercollegiate Athletics Com-

mittee had prepared this first 5-Year Plan (a copy of

which is filed in the Regents Office), that there will

be refinements made and reported to the Board from time

to time, that they had considered the ASUN stand on

student fee increases as submitted by President Bill

Siegel, and that his recommendation at this time is for

the Board to accept the report, but not the recommenda-

tions as contained therein.



President Crowley reported that ASUN President Bill

Siegel's correspondence regarding student fee increases

has been taken into consideration.



President Crowley then highlighted issues under the 3

report catagories of "Men's and Women's Sports", "Aca-

demics" and "Financial Summary".



Chairman Mc Bride requested that there be options pre-

sented to the Board on funding, to which President

Crowley replied that the Athletic Board was asked to

do this, but they felt that it was not their responsi-

bility. It was agreed that Vice President Dhingra will

submit this report to the Board at the May meeting.



Mrs. Sheerin stated she felt there was a lack of aca-

demic progress listed in the report, emphasized the need

for the position of an Advisement Coordinator for the

athletes, that there also should be a requirement for

athletes to take part in the regular orientation pro-

grams now being administered for all students, that

the recruitment process should be addressed in this

report, and suggested that the System not go to the

Legislature with a request for athletic grants-in-aid

unless the System can graduate these athletes.



President Crowley replied that in the past there had

been problems with academics and athletics; however,

since his administration, one of the commitments he

made was to resolve these problems. He informed the

Board that UNR was the first College in the country

to require that athletes make substantial educational

progress toward achieving their degrees and that these

priorities are within the existing budget. In regard

to the Academic Advisor, President Crowley stated that

funding for this position should fall under the Vice

President of Academic affairs and not Athletics and is

currently being considered by staff.



Chairman Mc Bride requested that both UNR and UNLV sub-

mit a report containing the percentage of all athletic

graduates from their respective institutions, with Mr.

Siegel suggesting that these reports only reflect those

students who are receiving scholarships.



Mr. Klaich requested a more definite commitment to

Women's Sports to which President Crowley stated that

there may soon be a law passed that will encompass

Women's Sports.



Chairman Mc Bride relinquished the gavel to Vice Chairman Dorothy

Gallagher.



B. President Goodall submitted UNLV's 5-Year Plan, stating

that the community people who help in the recruiting of

athletes will be given the guidelines in order for them

to relay the correct information regarding the future

of their athletic program. In regard to fund raising,

President Goodall suggested the need for a new Boosters'

Club, reminding the Board that at this time, fund rais-

ing is directed by the Vice President, and there is a

need for a more specific direction in this area.



Chairman Mc Bride returned and resumed the gavel.



Mrs. Sheerin requested an update on the structural

problems at the Silver Bowl facilities. Chairman Mc

Bride informed her that the Silver Bowl's lease is for

only this next year, at the end of which the Convention

Authority will resume the lease; therefore, he advised

that monies not be directed for the improvements at the

Silver Bowl.



Mrs. Fong questioned the current deficit in the Athletic

Department. President Goodall informed her that at

least 1/3 and possibly more will be recovered this year.

He felt very confident that the Thomas and Mack Center

will be in the black this year.



Mrs. Fong moved to accept the 5-Year Plans for Athletics

at UNR and UNLV. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion

carried.



25. Emergency Item Regarding Honorary Degree, UNLV



President Goodall requested an emergency item regarding an

additional recipient of an honorary degree at UNLV.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval. Ms. Del Papa seconded.

Motion carried.



President Goodall requested that an honorary degree be pre-

sented to Madame Anwar Sadat with presentations to be made

at Commencement at UNLV in May, 1984.



Ms. Del Papa moved approval. Mrs. Gallagher seconded.

Motion carried.



The meeting recessed at 3:30 P.M. and reconvened on Friday, April

6, 1984 at 9:00 A.M. in a continuation of the Personnel Session,

with the regular meeting reconvening at 9:30 A.M. All Regents

were present with the exception of Mr. Karamanos and Mrs.

Whitley.



26. Report of UNLV Presidential Search Committee



Ms. Del Papa, Chair of the ad hoc Committee on the UNLV

Presidential Search, reported that there were approximately

130 applications. She stated that the Committee hoped to

be able to recommend to the Board a candidate at the May or

June meeting.



27. Report of Regents Bylaws Committee



Ms. Del Papa, Chair, reported there have been recommenda-

tions to the Regents Bylaws and that they will be submitted

to the Board for approval at the June meeting.



28. Legislative Workshop



A. Mrs. Sheerin submitted a report and recommendations to

the Board from the Joint Council on College Preparation,

which was referred to the Academic Affairs Council for

review, with resubmission to the Board at the June meet-

ing for their consideration. Chairman Mc Bride appoint-

ed Mrs. Sheerin as the Regent member to the Academic Af-

fairs Council for these discussions.



Chairman Mc Bride commended the Joint Council on College

Preparation for their endeavors, stating this is the

first time that the State Board of Education and the

Board of Regents have formally addressed common issues.



Mrs. Sheerin informed the Board that this report, when

finalized, will be sent to all high school faculty,

school board members, school superintendents, Campus

faculty and to the parents upon request. The Council

will be developing a student handbook which will be

distributed to the high schools and 8th graders in order

for them to begin to outline their high school programs.



Dean Richard Kunkel, UNLV, and a member of the Joint

Council, stated that this Council was most valuable,

and suggested that these two Boards should also look

into other areas such as Vocational Education and Teach-

er Education. He informed the Board that this joint

council concept is now being explored by other states.



B. Vice Chancellor Fox reported that the Academic Affairs

Council will be studying the System Admission Standards

and will report back to the Board. Chairman Mc Bride

requested that the Academic Affairs Council be charged

with the formulation of recommendations concerning ad-

missions policies in UNS and it was further noted that

Mrs. Sheerin was appointed by Chairman Mc Bride as the

liaison to the Academic Affairs Council. The Academic

Affairs Council will request input from the Campuses by

the end of the semester at which time they will review

recommendations of the Joint Council which call for in-

creased course requirements for admission.



C. Vice Chancellor Fox reported on the progress made in the

standardization of student placement in English courses

within the System. Following several meetings of the

Academic Affairs Council and sub-committees representing

the Universities and the Community Colleges Systemwide,

standards have been proposed.



Statement on English Placement

University of Nevada System



Placement in English 101 in the University of Nevada

System will be based upon an ACT English score of 17

(17-24), or an equivalent SAT Verbal score of 400-

599, TSWE score of 38-56 or equivalent criteria

through formal assessment of students.



Test Scores to be Used



ACT SAT

English Course English Verbal TSWE



English 1, A 1-16 200-399 00-37



Developmental English



English 101 17-24 400-599 38-56

English 25-36 600-800 57-57+



Mrs. Fong moved approval of the English Placement test

scores. Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



The Board commended Vice Chancellor Fox for this

achievement and recommended that he report to the Gov-

ernor and to the Governor's Commission on Education

the new standards on student placement in English as

adopted above.



D. Dr. Karen Kunkle presented the System Transfer Guide

to the Board.



E. Vice Chancellor Fox submitted to the Board a report en-

titled "Preliminary Estimates of Developmental Remedial

System Study", filed in the Regents Office. He reported

to the Board on the status of a study being completed by

his office on Developmental and Remedial courses within

the System. In comparing 1980 and 1982 expenditure

estimates at the Community Colleges, it was found that

federal support for Adult Basic Education (ABE) and

English as a Second Language (ESL) have decreased from

43% to 30% of funds expended and that the State support-

ed effort for developmental courses has increased from

57% to 80%. Vice Chancellor Fox noted that this item

should receive further study as it could demonstrate an

increasing financial burden on the Community Colleges.



For UNLV and UNR, preliminary estimates show that as a

percentage of total enrollment, enrollment in remedial

English courses ranges from 1.3% to 2.7%. Remedial

courses are only offered in the subject matter of Eng-

????? lish, English A at UNLV, and English 1 at UNR. As

placement in remedial English courses has now become

standardized at UNR and UNLV, equivalent enrollment

can most likely be expected in the future. He noted

that the developmental remedial study would be com-

pleted at the end of the semester and that a full report

to the Board will be submitted at that time.



Mr. Klaich moved approval to accept the report of the Joint

Council. Mrs. Fong seconded. Motion carried.



29. Chairman's Report



Chairman Mc Bride reported that the Board facilities at the

Thomas and Mack Center are being used on a temporary basis

and further that there were no monies to be expended on

furnishing the room. This issue will be placed on the May

agenda for further discussion.



30. New Business



A. General Counsel Klasic reported to the Board that the

procedures regarding the Francis Estate as discussed

in former meetings, and which concern a bequest to UNLV

have been completed. Safeguards have been put in place

so that the bequest will be used for the benefit of

Robert Francis, son of the deceased.



B. Suggested item for future Regent meetings were recom-

mended as follows:



Compensation Committee Report

Joint Meeting of the State Board of Education and

Board of Regents

Legislative list from Presidents to be submitted

Outside forces to be used at the Legislature on

behalf of UNS

Coordination of Systemwide efforts at the Legisla-

ture



C. Ms. Del Papa requested a policy be devised regarding

the construction of new Campus buildings. To be in-

cluded in this policy should be a timetable of when

the buildings will come on line, regular procedures

to be used in consulting potential users of the build-

ings at the right time, and that the Physical Plant

personnel help to implement such policies. Chairman

Mc Bride instructed the Chancellor's Office to establish

this policy with the State Public Works Board.



The meeting adjourned at 12:07 P.M.
