3. Chairman's Report



Chairman Sparks allowed CSUN President Joel Kostman to ad-

dress the Board. Mr. Kostman stated that as CSUN President

he represented over 19,000 students at UNLV. Recently, a

student survey was conducted by the Campus paper, the Rebel

Yell, which resulted in unfavorable statistics towards UNLV

President Robert Maxson. Another student survey was con-

ducted by CSUN which included more specific questions about

UNLV issues, and that survey was more positive. Students

who work with President Maxson know that President Maxson

is a President who cares for the students. The students

are angry with the media and Legislators who have a vendetta

against President Maxson. Mr. Kostman urged the Board of

Regents to retain President Maxson so he can continue his

endeavors for the good of UNLV.



Dr. Derby reported that she recently attended the ACCT

National Legislative Seminar in Washington, D. C. There

were several national issues that impact Nevada and she

met with Nevada's congressional delegation to discuss these

issues, such as the Pell Grant and the Scientific and Ad-

vance Technology Act. She encouraged fellow members of the

Board to attend ACCT meetings. In September she will be

attending the ACCT Pacific Regional Conference to be held

in British Columbia, Canada.



4. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Dawson reported that he has appointed Deputy

Treasurer Janet Mac Donald to Chair a committee that will

review refinancing of bonds for the System which may result

in savings for the System.



Chancellor Dawson reported that he is retaining the services

of Lloyd Peterson and Robert Mac Vicar who have been assign-

ed to review the J. R. Rider incident at UNLV. Mr. Peterson

and Mr. Mac Vicar have interviewed 40 people and will pre-

sent their final judgement after receiving appropriate sig-

natures to affidavits, which will be in the next 2 to 3

weeks.

WNCC

for the Fallon Campus at WNCC. Based upon interest rates

it is estimated that WNCC could save approximately $600

per month until 1998 and $35,000 over the remaining life

of the loan. The original loan for Fallon of $421,758 was

structured with monthly payments of $4030 and a 1998 balloon

pleted within the next year. This position was requested

likely those items will be funded.

of Community Colleges for 1993-94 with Regents' Special

Projects Funds at the same salary and benefits as currently

14. Information Only: National Science Foundation (NSF) Report



Chancellor Dawson stated that Community Colleges across the

nation are becoming more involved in science-based technical

education. The NSF selected faculty from Community Colleges

to aid in the development of Community College science-based

technical education. From Nevada, NSF chose two TMCC facul-

ty members -- Dr. Jody Chase and Dr. John Clevenger. Chan-

cellor Dawson introduced Dr. Chase, who presented a report

on opportunities for science and science-based technical

education.



The NSF, along with other federal agencies, has taken sig-

nificant steps to increase support for Community Colleges.

They have recognized the critical role of these institutions

in science, mathematics, engineering and technical educa-

tion. Community Colleges represent a key bridging point

between Universities, secondary schools, business/industry,

and other federal agency programs. Community Colleges also

provide an important educational access route for minorities

and women as well as a key role retraining our current work

force. Passage last year of the Scientific and Advanced

Technology Act, PL 102-476, has increased opportunities for

creative, collaborative, and systemic program development.



Nevada and UCCSN are uniquely positioned to pursue these

opportunities. Dr. Chase's presentation provided an over-

view of NSF directions and opportunities, and Dr. Clevenger

presented a summary of current UCCSN activities in this

area.



Dr. Clevenger reported that he has met with all the Com-

munity College faculty and Administration. There is much

interest in NSF's programs. He is hopeful that he can put

the appropriate personnel in contact with each other in

order for UCCSN to capitalize on NSF's programs. He felt

that Nevada has a very good chance in being able to estab-

lish a NSF Science Center.



Dr. Clevenger expressed his appreciation to President John

Gwaltney for allowing him to work in the Chancellor's Of-

fice to aid in developing this program and aid in grant

writing at the institutional level.



Dr. Derby stated that UCCSN is very fortunate to have Dr.

Clevenger in the Chancellor's Office. During her recent

vist to Washington, D. C., she conveyed the importance of

this program to Nevada's congressional delegation. Nevada

is in a very good position to establish a Science Center.

She extended her appreciation to Dr. Clevenger and Mr. Doug

Burris for their efforts in this project.



Regents Gallagher and Graves left the meeting.



Chairman Sparks indicated that she hoped this project would

not slide by. It has great potential. UCCSN and Nevada

should take advantage of this project.



15. Report of the Spring 1993 Enrollment and 1992-93 Annualized

Enrollment



Karen Steinberg, Director of Institutional Research, pre-

sented the enrollment report for Spring 1993 and for the

1992-93 annualized enrollments. The report was distributed

at the meeting, and is filed in the Regents' Office.



Mrs. Berkley left the meeting; Mr. Graves returned to the meet-

ing.



Chairman Sparks questioned why NNCC's headcount dropped

47.2%, and President Remington replied that seminars were

eliminated due to the fluctuation in responding to the

local area business needs.



Mrs. Gallagher returned to the meeting.



Vice Chancellor Sparks reported that overall the growth

within the system has slowed down (9.5% last year; 4.9 this

year). He attributes this to the budget reductions in 1992.

However, UCCSN is 1.4% over the legislative approved budget

(502 additional students). UCCSN is actually 1.2% below the

reprojection that was developed at the time the 1993-95

budget request was developed. The enrollments at UNR ex-

ceed their budget by 297 additional students, and CCSN has

1455 additional students.



Mrs. Berkley returned to the meeting.



16. Information Only: Discussion of Draft Strategic Directions



During the Board of Regents Workshop held on February 4,

1993, participants discussed Board Strategic Directions,

reviewed the strategic directions for priority for action,

and set objectives for strategic directions. A draft sum-

mary of the discussion is attached as Ref. D, filed in the

Regents' Office. Dr. Derby lead a discussion of the stra-

tegic directions and outlined the actions suggested to

finalize the strategic directions and objectives.



Mrs. Karen Steinberg, Director of Institutional Research,

reported that the draft document was mailed to each workshop

participant for input. She stated that the final document

will be published in a format similar to last year's publi-

cation. A second document will also be published, and it

will be entitled, "Agenda for Action, 1993". The Board and

Chancellor's staff will develop this document based on the

Strategic Directions and Objectives. Actions will be given

priority based on the decisions from the workshop. Specific

actions will be assigned to various appropriate groups with

suggested timelines for reports and recommendations to the

Board. This will aid UCCSN in attempting to move forward

on the objectives and being able to measure the progress of

each objective.



Mrs. Steinberg highlighted the draft document which included

the following strategic directions:



The UCCSN will enhance academic planning and integrate

planning and budgeting efforts Systemwide. The System

will initially focus on the role and mission of its

component parts.



The UCCSN will emphasize undergraduate education and

enhance the quality of undergraduate education.



The UCCSN will selectively develop graduate education

Systemwide that serves the needs of Nevadans and en-

hances undergraduate programs.



The UCCSN will strive to enhance access to and retention

in public postsecondary education.



The UCCSN will recognize and reflect the diversity of

society within its institutions.



The UCCSN will enchance collaborative efforts within the

System and between the System and other institutions and

agencies.



The UCCSN will provide a leadership role to promote

economic health and growth of the State through the

development of the State's human resources.



The UCCSN will continue its commitment to evaluation

and assessment to ensure accountability to the citizens

of Nevada.



The UCCSN will strive to obtain additional resources

and also to provide resources reallocation adequate

to accomplish our plans and ensure that the resources

are utilized to provide a maximum return on investment

in higher education.



The UCCSN will recognize the importance of higher edu-

cation in building common societal values and ethics,

and will seek ways to promote and enhance this role.



President Taranik suggested that the objectives should in-

clude a "vision statement", as well as a mission statement.

Dr. Derby indicated that the next workshop may be able to

address his suggestion.



17. Approved Handbook Change, UCCSN Foundation Reporting



Approved the Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 10, Section

9, UCCSN and Member Institution Foundations Administrative

and Accounting Guidelines. This change has been reviewed

by the Foundations and was discussed by the Chancellor dur-

ing his report to the Board at the March 1993 meeting, Ref.

E is filed in the Regents' Office.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook changes regarding

UCCSN and Member Institution Foundations Administrative and

Accounting Guidelines. Mrs. Whitley seconded.



Mr. Klaich suggested two additions be made to the policy for

clarification purposes:



1) Common Format Reporting. All reports, statement, ex-

pense summaries and the like required to be prepared by

the Foundations for submission to the Board of Regents

shall, to the extent possible, be in a common format.

The Chancellor shall coordinate reporting and the es-

tablishment of such common formats.



2) Public Information. All reports, statements and ex-

penditure summaries prepared for submission to the Board

of Regents pursuant to this section shall be public

records, available as such upon reasonable request.



Mrs. Price moved approval to accept the two amendments to

the Handbook changes regarding UCCSN and Member Institution

Foundations Administrative and Accounting Guidelines. Mr.

Graves seconded.



Mrs. Gallagher questioned whether language regarding the

Board's acceptance of gifts for programs that are not

within the scope of the academic and/or physical master

plans is needed. In the past, foundations have raised money

for projects outside these master plans.



Mrs. Berkley questioned whether the Board would accept an

enormous gift that is not within the master plan, and

Chairman Sparks added that the Board would have to be very

careful not to restrict the institution's ability to take

advantage of such opportunities. Mrs. Gallagher stated

that language does not have to be added to the policy in

this regard; however, the institutions should keep members

of the Board informed of such gifts and that the institu-

tions should abide by the proper procedures in accepting

the gift and developing the program(s).



Dr. Derby stated that the principle of this suggestion is

important to master planning, but gift giving should not be

limited. Mr. Graves stated that he supported the idea, but

can't adequately imagine what the future holds. The policy

should not limit gift giving.



General Counsel Klasic stated that it is the policy of the

Board of Regents to accept donations only for programs

already established in each institution's academic master

plan, provided that donations for a new program may be

accepted by the Board if the proposed new program has been

approved through the System's academic planning process.



President Maxson agreed, and suggested that Mrs. Gallagher's

suggestion be adopted, but indicate that the process will be

flexible. Mrs. Gallagher stated that master planning is not

cast in concrete and is ever evolving. She just wanted to

make certain the Board of Regents has some control over the

master plans and the gift giving.



President Maxson suggested that this idea be brought forward

to the Council of Presidents for review and brought back to

the Board of Regents for consideration.



For the record, Mr. Klaich stated that the proposed guide-

lines address professional salaries and perquisites.



Motion carried as amended.



The open meeting recessed at 12:00 noon.



18. Closed Session



Dr. Hammargren moved, Mrs. Berkley seconded, that a closed

session be held for purposes of discussion of the character,

alleged misconduct, professional competence, or physical or

mental health of an employee(s) of the UCCSN, a public of-

ficial(s), and/or private person(s).



The open meeting reconvened at 1:46 P.M. Thursday, April 8, 1993

with all Regents present except Regents Berkley, Eardley, Foley

and Gallagher.



19. Report and Recommendations of the Status of Women Committee



A report and recommendations of the Status of Women Commit-

tee meeting, held April 8, 1993, were made by Regent Jill

Derby, Chairman.



Information Only: Campus Implementation Plans - The Campus

Status of Women Committees have produced written plans of

implementation to address the recommendations contained in

the Regents' Status of Women Committee Interim Report.

Brief summaries of the Campus implementation plans were

presented by UCCSN Research Analyst Tamela Gorden.



Ms. Gorden reported that in February 1992, the Regents' ad

hoc Committee on the Status of Women presents its "Interim

Report and Recommendations" to the Board of Regents. As

outlined in that report, one of the first tasks of the

Campus committees was to devise written plans of implemen-

tation. Those plans were to detail how the Campuses pro-

posed to achieve the goals set forth in the Interim Report.



The Campus committees presented draft reports to the Re-

gents' Committee at a February 1993 videoconference meeting.

The final versions of those plans are now complete. Ms.

Gorden urged the members of the Board to review the plans

to see what the Campus committees have done and plan to do

in the future.



The charges contained in the Interim Report covered a broad

range of tasks. Several of the Campus committees approached

this by breaking into subcommittees designed to address

distinct areas. For example:



UNLV - Implementation:

Problems associated with sexual harassment



Policies & Procedures:

General problems of gender bias



TMCC - Policies & Procedures:

Mentoring

Sensitivity Training

Informative Workshops for Administration

Professional Development

Child Care



The Campus Status of Women Committees are working with other

existing Campus committees where their interests overlap,

including Classified Employees Council (UNR); Women's

Centers, where they exist; and Faculty Senate Committees.



Additionally, the Status of Women Committees frequently

have cross-representation from other committees, which

facilitates better communication.



The Campuses are at various stages in the implementation

process. Several Campuses have made great strides, and

have addressed all or most of the recommendations contained

in the Interim Report.



Ms. Gorden proceeded to highlight each of the Campus imple-

mentation plans, which are filed in the Regents' office.



Upon questioning, Chairman Derby indicated that a compre-

hensive report will be presented to the Board of Regents in

order that the Campus reports will be shared throughout the

System. She reported that Campus Chairmen meet several

times throughout the year to share their respective Campus'

plans.



Chairman Derby commended Ms. Gorden for her report and in-

dicated that the Campus committees have worked diligently

in preparing their implementation plans.



Chairman Derby announced that she, Ms. Gorden, Ron Remington

and Jacqueline Kirkland have been requested to make a pres-

entation on UCCSN's process, structure, plans and recom-

mendations concerning the women's issues in higher educa-

tion at the ACCT Conference this Fall.



New Business



Chairman Derby indicated that the Committee will be focus-

ing on Affirmative Action Offices in the near future. Dr.

Hoover stated that UNR has appointed a committee to ad-

dress the UNR's Affirmative Action Office. Dr. Jill Winter,

UNR Center for Applied Research, stated that UNR's committee

has established several wide-ranging subcommittees; i. e.,

equity, discrimination, grievances, information systems,

etc. Newly-elected Faculty Senate Chairman Phil Boardman

will serve on UNR's committee.



Chairman Derby stated that the student surveys are in proc-

ess at each institution and should be completed in May 1993.

she thanked each of the Presidents for their support in this

endeavor.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Status of Women Committee. Mrs. Whitley seconded.

Motion carried.



The open meeting recessed at 1:49 P.M. and reconvened at 2:07

P.M. Thursday, April 8, 1993, with all Regents present except

Regents Eardley, Foley and Gallagher.



20. Report and Recommendations of the Research Affairs Committee



A report and recommendations of the Research Affairs Com-

mittee meeting held April 8, 1993 were made by Regent Lonnie

Hammargren, Chairman.



1. Discussion of Policy: Intellectual Property - Dr. David

Mc Nelis, Research Affairs Council Chairman, discussed

the Regents' Intellectual Property Policy as contained

in Ref. R-1, filed in the Regents' Office. He stated

that the policy is a very liberal policy in terms of

inventions. The policy encourages faculty to become

involved. Dr. Mc Nelis informed the Committee that

faculty and Administration review the proposals for

patentability or commercial potential.



Dr. Mc Nelis stated that tracking of dollar amounts

is done to a certain extent; however, the potential is

great. As yet there is no cash flow.



Mr. Graves mentioned that DRI's Foundation Board has a

member who is a patent attorney and has indicated in-

terest in becoming more involved in this issue.



UNR Graduate Association President Laurence Doyle

questioned the definition of "personnel" with regard

to "Significant Use" as contained in Section 3, and Dr.

Mc Nelis clarified that each institution has a person

who reviews the "significant" resources and makes a

determination.



2. Discussion of Indirect Cost Recovery Funds - It has been

learned that the Clinton Administration is considerating

capturing dollars from the indirect cost recovery funds

on federal grants by as much as 30%. Dr. David Mc Nelis

reported that the Clinton Administration has reviewed

this issue and will probably not change the process.



Dr. Hammargren moved approval of the report and recommenda-

tion of the Research Affairs Committee. Mr. Graves second-

ed. Motion carried.



21. Information Only: Report on Lease of Land and Parking

Facilities



President Maxson reported on the lease of land and parking

facilities for UNLV. He indicated that UNLV is land-locked

and must become very resourceful in the future. UNLV is

beginning negotiations on securing land. He discussed four

proposals:



A. He explained that at the corner of Flamingo Road and

Swenson the county installed a drainage ditch, which

has left 1.7 acres undeveloped. UNLV wishes to lease

this land for 10 years with the possibility of renewal.



In addition, UNLV would like to construct a $6 million

parking deck for 1000 vehicles near Artemus W. Ham

Concert Hall. The funding from the 1.7 acres would be

dedicated to the parking deck and the remainder would

come from bond issues.



President Maxson gave other options to supplement the

bonds, such as 1) charge a parking fee; 2) dedicate

part of the Capital Improvement Fee Fund to parking; and

3) charge a parking fee for use of the parking deck.



Mrs. Gallagher returned to the meeting.



B. The Airport Authority has purchased the land across

Tropicana Blvd. from the Thomas and Mack Center. There

is a possibility that this land may be donated to UNLV

within the next 2 years. UNLV has been informed that

a School of Architecture could be accredited if more

space were allocated to the program. This land may

be used for such a program.



C. On the corner of Swenson and Tropicana Blvd. the Board

of Regents owns 7 acres and the Summa Corporation owns

11 acres. The Airport Authority recently acquired

Summa's 11 acres and has leased the land to UNLV for

$1 per year. The Airport Authority is willing to pay

for improvements if they can use it for one year for

employee parking while the airport is being remodeled.



D. The University Park Apartments price has risen from $8

million to $9.8 million. UNLV would like to demolish

the apartments to expand UNLV's land.



In addition, UNLV would like to purchase the Boy Scouts

building and other buildings located near the Campus.



Mr. Klaich stated that he did not want to see students walk-

ing across Swenson and reminded UNLV of the situation UNR

experienced with students walking across Virginia Street to

get to the Campus.



22. Approved to Award A Contract, UNLV/ACE Denken Company



The Board reconsidered the report of the Investment Commit-

tee meeting held March 6, 1993 concerning the Ace Denken

Company contract. Mr. Klaich stated that the Board tabled

this item at the March 6, 1993 meeting to allow UNLV to

renegotiate the contract. Mr. Klaich met with Dean of

Hotel Administration David Christianson and Vice President

John Unrue to review in detail the contract. Deputy Treas-

urer Janet Mac Donald expressed her concerns and the Board's

concerns regarding the contract. The contract was revised

and is much more favorable for UNLV and the School of Hotel

Administration at UNLV. Mr. Klaich and Deputy Treasurer

Mac Donald recommend the acceptance of the contract.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the revised UNLV contract

with Ace Denken Company. Mrs. Price seconded.



Mrs. Gallagher stated that she was pleased that everyone

concerned worked together on this issue. Mr. Graves com-

mended the Regents who pursued having the contract renegoti-

ated and Deputy Treasurer Mac Donald for her expertise in

working with this contract. It was a difficult task to

undertake.



Dr. Hammargren opposed. Motion carried.



23. Approved Honorary Doctorate Degree



Mr. Klaich moved, Mrs. Whitley seconded, that Chancellor

Mark Dawson be honored with an Honorary Doctorate Degree

from the University of Nevada, Reno. The award will be

conferred during Commencement exercises in May. Motion

carried.



The open meeting recessed at 2:50 P.M. and reconvened at 3:35

P.M. Thursday, April 8, 1993, with all Regents present except

Regents Berkley, Eardley, Foley, Graves and Klaich.



24. Approved 1993 Nevada's Regents' Outstanding Students



The Board determined the recipients of the 1993 Nevada Re-

gents' Outstanding Student Award. These individuals will

be honored at the Regents' reception in Reno and Las Vegas

in May.



University of Nevada, Reno



Wesley W. Hall



University of Nevada, Las Vegas



Lu Ann Caressi



Western Nevada Community College



Pamela S. King



Northern Nevada Community College



L. Kim Smith



Community College of Southern Nevada



Jane Rhees



Truckee Meadows Community College



Seldon "Gus" Brannan



Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the 1993 Nevada Regents'

Outstanding Student Award recipients, and approved a $500

award for each recipient. Mrs. Price seconded. Motion

carried.



Mr. Klaich suggested that the Board consider at the May

meeting, revising the policy to allow two awards at the

University level -- one for an undergraduate student and

one for a graduate student.



The open meeting recessed at 3:44 P.M. in order to meet with

WNCC faculty. Several faculty members made presentations:



Michon Mackedon, English Instructor and Faculty Senate

Chairman, video telecourses and prison education

Valerie Anderson, Reference Librarian, and Reg Creasey,

Data Processing Instructor, new computer technologies

Rene Magrini, Natural Science Instructor, high-tech science

equipment

Stephanie Arrigotti, Music Program Coordinator, performing

arts



The open meeting reconvened at 9:10 A.M. Friday, April 9, 1993,

with all Regents present except Regents Berkley, Eardley, Foley,

Hammargren and Whitley. It was just learned that Regent

Whitley's father passed away; she left the meeting immediately.



25. Information Only: Investment Performance, Year End June 30,

1992



Investment performance results for the UCCSN Permanent

Endowment Pool were presented by Matthew D. Lincoln of

Cambridge & Associates. Results were compared to the

appropriate market indexes and to other Universities by

manager and by asset category as well as totals for the

pool. The fiscal year performance summary is filed in

the Regents' Office.



Mr. Lincoln stated that it is important for UCCSN's revenue

stream to keep pace with the inflation. UCCSN needs to in-

vest in more volatile stocks over a 10-20 year period, and

should keep distribution low to reinvest in order to offset

income stream. There is enough growth (4.5%) in the en-

dowments. Mr. Lincoln highlighted the performance summary.



Mr. Klaich stated that he is a member of the Investment

Advisory Committee which recently reviewed the investment

policy and history over the past several years. If anyone

should have questions or would like a copy of this document,

either the Deputy Treasurer, Janet Mac Donald, or Endowment

Director, Edna Brigham, should be contacted.



Chairman Sparks stated that Mr. Lincoln has been a great

asset to UCCSN. Great efforts have been demonstrated by

Mr. Lincoln, Ms. Mac Donald and Mrs. Brigham.



Mr. Lincoln stated that UCCSN has very high returns.

Cambridge and Association will continue to do their best

to take advantage of the market. He reported that the

endowment has a total of $83 million, which was started

in 1983 with only $20 million.



The open meeting recessed at 9:30 A.M. and reconvened at 10:00

A.M. Friday, April 9, 1993, with all Regents present except

Regents Berkley, Eardley, Foley and Whitley.



26. Report and Recommendations of the Legislative Liaison

Committee



A report and recommendations of the Legislative Liaison

Committee meeting, held April 9, 1993, were made by Regent

Daniel J. Klaich, Acting Chairman.



1. Information Only: Legislative Report - Vice Chancellor

Sparks provided an update on legislative activity. He

reported that hearings were held in the North (March 25)

and the South (April 3) with the Assembly Ways and Means

Higher Education Subcommittee, and the Senate Finance

Committee has toured facilities. At this time, there

are no further hearings scheduled for UCCSN.



Vice Chancellor Sparks informed the Committee that joint

budget hearings have begun. The Legislature has not

acted on the School Distributive Fund appropriation

which may result in an $18.3 million reduction or addi-

tional reductions in other budgets.



The Governor's reorganization plan does not seem to be

accepted by the Legislators, and the Honor Camp closure

may not take place.



The revenue projections, to date, are just about on

target. There is approximately $40 million in revenues

to be redirected within the Governor's budget before

any triggers can be realized. The Governor has said

higher education will be addressed first if additional

revenues do materialize.



Chairman Berkley has requested several Regents appear

before the Legislature during its sessions next week.



Mrs. Whitley left the meeting.



2. Information Only: Overview of Legislative Bills Per-

taining to UCCSN



The Committee reviewed bills concerning UCCSN which

have been introduced in the Legislature. A listing

of these bills is filed in the Regents' Office. Chan-

cellor's staff and members of the Board were directed

to address several bills.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Legislative Liaison Committee. Mr. Graves seconded.

Motion carried.



27. Information Only: Washoe County Library



Mr. Keith Lockhard, Vice Chairman, Washoe County Library

Board of Trustees, introduced Mrs. Martha Gould, Director

of the Library System. They requested the Board of Regents

to take action to reinstate reciprocity in the borrowing of

library materials relative to the UNR Library and the Washoe

County Library. Mr. Lockard briefly discussed the back-

ground and key issues regarding this matter. (Distributed

material is filed in the Regents' Office.)



President Crowley stated that he understands the Washoe

County Library's Board of Trustees position, but the

University Library can no longer justify offering the same

free services to the general public as it does to students

who pay tuition for the privilege of getting an education

at the University. Approximately 1/4 of all registered

borrowers in the University Library are not affiliated

with UCCSN. By imposing a fee to external users is a way

to help share in the restraints which the budget reductions

have placed on the University Library.



Dean of Libraries Hap Morehouse introduced Steve Zink, who

stated that this issue is not an "access" issue, but a "bor-

rowing" issue. It is difficult to collect from external

borrowers on overdue fees; however, with University students

a "hold" is placed on their records until the fees are paid.

The students are the primary clientele of the University and

should be served. For instance, there is a chance that if a

high school student borrows all resources on a particular

subject from the University Library, a University student

working on the same subject then will not have the resources

available to him/her on the subject.



Mrs. Gould stated that a fee is also going to be charged

for the use of Nevada Academic Libraries Information System

(NALIS). The Washoe County Library would like to renegoti-

ate this reciprocity agreement. The Washoe County Library

also serves the University community.



Mr. Graves clarified that the University Library is not

limiting access to their facilities, they are simply

imposting a $25 user fee. Mrs. Gould stated that the

Library System in Nevada has had a unique historic sharing

of resources in the past and would like to continue this

relationship.



Mr. Graves stated that he felt the $25 user fee was a

reasonable request. UNR Graduate Association President

Laurence Doyle stated that University students do pay $1

to the libraries out of their tuition fees, and students

feel the user fee is fair and reasonable.



Mrs. Price stated the libraries are a very important re-

source and felt that other land-grant institutions should

look at Nevada, instead of vice-versa. She suggested that

a committee be formed to address the library issue through-

out the System. Mrs. Gould stated that there is a State

Advisory Council that addresses library issues.



Chairman Sparks suggested that the various library groups

get together and complete a Statewide plan that will address

this issue. It is the Board of Regents' mandate to consider

its institutions' concerns. Mr. Graves agreed and stated

that UCCSN respects Washoe County's concerns, but in return

they should respect UNR's concerns and needs.



28. Information Only: Report on Space Grant



President Taranik introduced the members on the Nevada Space

Grant Consortium. Mr. John Gardner, Coordinator, reported

that in 1987 the Space Grant Fellowship Program was intial-

ized. The purpose was to increase aerospace education

through research and education and to inspire K-12 students,

including minorities and women. The Consortium was created

in 1991 and its mission is to issue grants to students and

faculty for research.



Dr. Robert Wharton, DRI faculty and Consortium member, re-

ported that $173,000 has been granted in 1992 to UCCSN for

44 scholarships and fellowships throughout the System. In

September, the Consortium will host the Third Western

Regional Space Grant Conference to be held in Las Vegas.



Mr. Robert Collier, WNCC faculty and Consortium member,

reported on the outreach programs of the Nevada Space Grant.

One such program is the "Marsville - The Cosmic Village"

that involves elementary and middle school children to

experience what it is like to live on the plant Mars.

This year a satellite communications network is being plan-

ned between two cosmic villages located in Las Vegas and

Carson City.



Mr. Tod Colegrove, Ph. D. candidate in Physics at UNR, re-

ported that he is involved in the research aspect of the

Nevada Space Grant and is developing an astronomical CCD

camera based on a Ford Aerospace 1024 x 1024 3-phase sci-

entific grade chip. During his research, by use of net-

working, he has been able to use major telescopes through-

out the country.



WNCC student, Maggie Taman, a scholarship recipient, stated

that this opportunity has allowed her to prepare herself

for education in physics.



President Taranik encouraged all those interested to attend

the conference in Las Vegas this September.



President Calabro introduced Mark Melrose, newly elected Faculty

Senate Chairman at WNCC. He extended his appreciation to out-

going Faculty Senate Chairman Michon Mackedon.



29. Information Only: School of Medicine Tuition Increases



President Crowley informed the Board that this issue has

been brought to his attention in the recent weeks. He

requested that consideration by the Board be placed on the

May agenda.



Vice President of Finance and Administration Ashok Dhingra

explained the need to raise the School of Medicine tuition.

He distributed and explained to the Board a proposed policy

change to the Handbook, Title 4, Chapter 17, Section 1,

Assessment of Fees, which will be an action item at the

May Board meeting.



President Crowley stated that the proposed changes will

allow the School of Medicine to begin a regular basis of

establishing fee increases. The School of Medicine has a

separate budget process and fee increases have been over-

looked. It is not a formula-driven budget.



Dr. Robert Daugherty, Dean of the School of Medicine, dis-

cussed the issue of student health and disability insurance.

Medical students are the only personnel in the hospital

setting that are not employees; therefore, they do not

have disability insurance. At the May meeting, he would

like to propose that insurance be mandated for medical

students and that the students pay a fee to employ one

person to handle insurance and financial aid.



Dr. Daugherty introduced current medical students Tammy

Kelley and Clint Purvance. Both students expressed their

concern to increase tuition fees, mandate health and dis-

ability insurance, and to hire personnel to handle in-

surance and financial aid. They are very supportive of

these issues and feel that their fellow students will

also support these issues.



President Crowley announced that Clint Purvance was also

an Elardi Scholar at UNLV prior to his acceptance into

the School of Medicine.



30. Approved Handbook Change, Special Admission Program, UNLV



Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 16, Section 6,

Special Admission Program, UNLV, as contained in Ref. F,

filed in the Regents' Office.



President Maxson explained that this request would change

the special admission requirement from 4% to 6%. This

would allow an increase in diversity and an increase in the

non-traditional students. He stated that this policy change

would probably affect about 200 students.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the Handbook change re-

garding the Special Admission Program at UNLV. Mr. Graves

seconded. Motion carried.



31. Approved International Exchange Program, UNR



Approved a reciprocal undergraduate exchange program be-

tween the University of Nevada, Reno and Universities in the

successor republics to the USSR. The program is sponsored

by the Institute of International Education which has a

strong history of successful exchange programs providing

opportunities for both the American students and the for-

eign students to enhance their education and their aware-

ness of other cultures. UNR is one of only 10 schools in-

vited by ITE to participate in this 2-way exchange program.



The commitment would be to a 5-year program of exchanging

up to 5 students per year. ITE funds travel, housing and

health insurance. The participating institutions provide

tuition waivers.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the International Exchange

Program at UNR. Mr. Graves seconded. Motion carried.



President Taranik stated that "Time" magazine recently

featured an interview that indicated that it is essential

for the former USSR to become more stable and this exchange

program will certainly contribute.



32. Approved Tuition Fee Waiver, Basque Exchange Program, UNR



Approved tuition waivers for 2 graduate students per year.

The University has a cultural exchange agreement with the

Basque government through which the Basque government

provides tuition fee waivers and $10,000 in scholarship

funds for UNR students to study in the Basque country.

The Basque government also provides scholarship funds for

Basque students to study at UNR. At present, Nevada incurs

no cost in this program, all funding is from the Basque

government. To improve the quality of the educational

experience available to the Basque exchange students, the

Basque Studies Program is requesting tuition support for

the students. Because this is a reciprocal student ex-

change which benefits Nevada students, it appears that

granting tuition fee waivers for the Basque graduate stu-

dents would be appropriate.



Dr. Derby moved approval of the tuition fee waiver for the

Basque Exchange Program at UNR. Mrs. Gallagher seconded.

Motion carried.



The open meeting recessed at 12:05 P.M. and reconvened at 12:50

P.M. Friday, April 9, 1993, with all Regents present except

Regents Berkley, Eardley, Foley and Whitley.



33. Approved Handbook Change, Community College Salary Plan



Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 3, Section 20,

Community College Salary Plan, as contained in Ref. G,

filed in the Regents' Office.



The Community College Presidents, with input from the Com-

munity College Professional Compensation Committee, recom-

mended the policy amendments to clarify the process for

administering the Community College Faculty Salary Schedule.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the Handbook change regard-

ing the Community College Salary Plan. Mr. Graves seconded.

Motion carried.



The open meeting recessed at 12:52 P.M. and reconvened at 1:12

P.M. Friday, April 9, 1993, with all Regents present except

Regents Berkley, Eardley, Foley and Whitley.



34. Approved a Foundation Study Committee



Regent Hammargren, in a letter dated March 5, 1993, called

for a Regents' Committee to study the UCCSN Foundations,

contained in Ref. I, filed in the Regents' Office.



Dr. Hammargren suggested that the Committee be entitled,

"Regents' Foundation Liaison Committee", with the follow-

ing members to serve on the Committee:



Regent Lonnie Hammargren, Chairman

Regent James Eardley

Regent Madison Graves

Regent Daniel J. Klaich

Regent Nancy Price

President Robert Maxson, UNLV

President Joseph Crowley, UNR

President Jim Taranik, DRI

Mrs. Janet Mac Donald, staff

Mrs. Edna Brigham, staff



Dr. Derby moved approval of the Regents' Foundation Liaison

Committee and its members. Mr. Graves seconded.



Mr. Graves stated that this is a great idea and long over-

due. By creating a committee, it will give the System a

chance to standardize the Foundations' policies, reporting

format, etc.



Mr. Klaich stated that he supports Dr. Hammargren's sug-

gested Committee members, but felt that the Committee

might want to include Foundation trustees. Mrs. Gallagher

suggested that the Chairman of the Board appoint addition-

al members to the Committee and develop a mandate of the

Committee.



Chairman Sparks suggested that the Committee sit as a Com-

mittee of the Whole and then add others as deemed neces-

sary. Dr. Derby stated that she supported the creation of

the Committee, but did not feel it necessary to create a

Committee of the Whole. Mr. Klaich suggested that addi-

tional membership to the Committee be discussed by the

Chairman, the Chancellor and Dr. Hammargren.



Dr. Hammargren clarified that he would form a committee by

discussing the membership with the Chairman of the Board

and the Chancellor.



Motion carried.

38. Approved Report and Recommendations of the Audit Committee



A report and recommendations of the Audit Committee meeting

held March 24, 1993 were made by Regent Dorothy Gallagher,

Chairman.



(1) Acting Director of Internal Audit John Love presented

the audit of the NNCC Scholarship Program, July 1, 1991

through June 30, 1992. The audit report is filed in

the Regents' Office.



(2) Acting Director of Internal Audit John Love presented

the audit of the NNCC Community Education, July 1, 1991

through June 30, 1992. The audit report is on file in

the Regents' Office.



(3) Acting Director of Internal Audit John Love presented

the audit of the UNLV Campus Recreation, July 1, 1991

through June 30, 1992. The audit report is on file

in the Regents' Office.



Mr. Love reported that an inventory of equipment is

taken each semester, and in addition, they now have a

photo inventory of all equipment. A training program

for employees has been implemented.



The following follow-up reports were presented by Acting

Director of Internal Audit John Love. The audit reports

are on file in the Regents' Office:



4. English as a Second Language, UNLV

5. Center for Public Data Research, UNLV

6. Center for Survey Research, UNLV

7. Payroll Department, UNLV

8. Scholarships, UNLV

9. Copy Machine Activity, UNLV

10. Physical Plant, CCSN

11. Child Development Laboratory, CCSN



A discussion was held to clarify the role of the audit func-

tion within UCCSN:



A request for funding a study of the audit function was

included in the 1993-95 UCCSN Budget Request. The stud-

y, a Quality Assurance Review, would be done by the out-

side auditing firm of Deloitte-Touche, and would include

a recommendation for the number of auditors needed for

the System. UCCSN Internal Audit will do a self-study

prior to the QAR, much as the Campuses do for accredit-

ing purposes. There is a National Guidelines and

Standards Manual for the auditing function, which will

be used in the study.



Selection of Departments for audit. Internal Audit has

a list of all audits completed for the last 12 years.

In the past, requests for audits came from Presidents

and others. A new software package has been brought

on line which determines the risk involved with each

Department. Internal Audit will present a list of

recommendations to the Audit Committee at the June

meeting. All Departments with revenue accounts are

being reviewed.



Inventory of equipment. A computerized system is now

in place which will add new equipment to the inventory

as it is purchased. Mr. Love explained that the prob-

lem they have found when doing audits has been with

people moving out old equipment as it is replaced, but

not changing the inventory master.



Manpower shortage. Two auditor positions, which were

vacant, were lost in the recent budget cutbacks. Sandi

Cardinal, the Director of Internal Audit, has been re-

assigned to head the Human Resources Program and is on

loan for approximately two years.



New Departments. UNR has an extensive training manual

to be used for new Departments or groups in setting up

their bookkeeping and handling of finances. UNLV has

been in contact with UNR and will be updating their

manuals.



Unaudited Departments. A question was asked whether it

would be possible to bring in a group of auditors to

assist in auditing all Departments; however, it was

pointed out that the training would take more time than

it would be worth. The self-study and the new software

package will be of more assistance than would temporary

auditors.



Surprise audits. These are not often done. Internal

Auditors generally give notice to Departments along with

a list of what is expected in an audit. This has proven

to be very helpful. Tom Judy, Controller at UNR, relat-

ed they do have a person on staff who checks various

Departments.



Transfers. Vice Chancellor Sparks related that the

policy, written in 1982, requires quarterly reports on

transfer; however, with the shortage of manpower, these

reports are being done annually. Mrs. Price stated that

quarterly reports will not always give a clear picture.

Dr. Eardley stated he preferred to receive annual re-

ports.



Mr. Graves moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Audit Committee. Mr. Klaich seconded. Motion car-

ried.



The open meeting recessed at 1:33 P.M. and reconvened at 1:40

P.M. Friday, April 9, 1993, , with all Regents present except

Regents Berkley, Eardley, Foley, Hammargren and Whitley.



39. Approved Report and Recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee

on Ethnic Minority Affairs



A report and recommendations of the ad hoc Ethnic Minority

Committee meetings, held March 5 and April 9, 1993, were

made by Regent June Whitley, Chairman.



1. Information Only: Report and Recommendations for the

March 16, 1993 Meeting - A report and recommendations

of the ad hoc Committee on Ethnic Minority Affairs

meeting, held March 4, 1993, were made by Acting Chair-

man Derby.



(1) Approved authorization to use Regents' Special

Project Funds in the amount of $25,000 for Commitee

operations.



The Campus committee Chairmen have developed survey

instruments for minority faculty and students and

have contacted a source to mail and process the

surveys for each Campus. The estimated cost for

this processing is $18,500 . The remainder of

the $15,000 would be used for the Statewise Task

Force meetings and other activities of the Commit-

tee.



2. Information Only: Progress Report - UCCSN Director of

Institutional Research Karen Steinberg presented a

progress report on the following Committee activities:



Student surveys have been distributed and will be

Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the ad hoc Committee on Ethnic Minority Affairs. Mr.

Graves seconded. Motion carried.

Grogan.



Mr. Klaich wished the outgoing Faculty Senate Chairmen and the

student representatives good luck and thanked them for serving

and for their input to the Board this past year.



40. New Business



Chairman Sparks requested information on the TMCC radio

station. President Gwaltney reported that within 18 months

the project should be completed, and he will give a more

detailed report to the Board of Regents.



Dr. Hammargren returned to the meeting.



Chairman Sparks questioned Vice Chancellor John Richardson

and Mr. Doug Burris on the progress of the System organiza-

tional review. The organizational review has been completed

and they are in the process of summarizing the findings.



Mr. Klaich suggested that a Regents' Seach Committee be

established for the Chancellor's search. UNR Faculty Senate

Chairman Ellen Pillard requested that faculty be included on

the Search Committee. Chairman Sparks explained that the

Regents serve on the Search Committee, but the Code provides

for input from Presidents, faculty and students at various

times throughout the process.



Mrs. Price requested that the matter of the action on Presi-

dent Maxson, as discussed in the Closed Session on April 7,

1993, be placed on the next agenda.



General Counsel Klasic explained to the Board members how

an agenda item gets placed on the agenda. He read the fol-

lowing policy from the Bylaws of the Board of Regents, Arti-

cle V, Section 8, Agenda:
