4. Humanities Building, UNLV

Mr. Hug asked if the light wells which had appeared in the

preliminary plans had been retained in the final drawings

and if so, what evaluation of them had been made following

the discussion of this feature by the Board at the September

meeting.



Mr. Strehlow reported that the light wells had been retained

since it was the only way to meet the scope of the programs

as developed by the Faculty Committee.



Mr. Hancock stated that the State Planning Board has review-

ed the final plans and agrees that the only way to provide

the outside light requirements specified for each Faculty

Office is to retain the light wells. He further noted

that the architect's estimate for the project is $3,110,860;

the project budget is $3 million with $300,000 for furnish-

ings and $90,000 for contingency. He said that there is a

reasonably good chance of getting in under the budget. He

confirmed that the final plans have been approved by the

Faculty Committee and by the State Planning Board.



President Zorn recommended approval. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Mr. Bilbray moved that the final plans be approved as sub-

mitted. Motion seconded by Dr. White, carried without

dissent.



5. Student Bill of Rights



President Miller reviewed the history of the proposed Stu-

dent Bill of Rights, noting that the Preamble through

Article IV.A had been adopted by the Board at its meeting

in February. The remaining articles had been reviewed by

the Attorney General and by the Student Affairs Committee.

An amended document had been produced from that meeting and

President Miller recommended its approval by the Board.

The amended document was distributed with a recommendation

by Mr. Ronzone, Chairman of the Student Affairs Committee,

that it be adopted.



Mr. Walsh stated that the amendment substantially satis-

fies the concerns expressed in his opinion.



Mr. Ronzone suggested a review of the document, by para-

graph, with any questions being directed to President

Miller or Jim Hardesty.



Paragraph IV.



B. Freedom of Inquiry and Expression



1. Students and student organizations shall be

free to examine and to discuss all questions

of interest to them, and to express opinions

publicly and privately. They shall be free

to support causes by legal and orderly means

which do not interfere with the operation of

the Institution, University or of its educa-

tional objectives.



2. (delete first paragraph)



University facilities, including Campus grounds,

are provided primarily for the support of the

regular educational functions of the University

and the activities necessary for the support of

these functions. The University's functions

take precedence over any other activities in the

use of University facilities.



Freedom to speak and to hear will be maintained

for students, faculty and staff and University

policies and procedures will be used to provide

a full and frank exchange of ideas. An effort

should be made to allow a balanced program of

speakers and ideas.



An invitation to speak at the University does

not imply that the University endorses the

philosophy or ideas presented by the speaker.



University facilities may not be used for the

purpose of raising monies to aid projects not

related to some authorized activity of the

University or of University groups, and no

efforts at conversion and solicitation by un-

invited non-Campus groups or individuals will

be permitted on Campus.



President Miller noted that the substitute wording suggested

for paragraph 2 above was the text of Faculty Policy Bulle-

tin #69-7 which sets forth the University's speaker policy

as approved by the Board of Regents.



Jim Hardesty asked that the first and last paragraphs of

Paragraph IV be deleted since they discuss procedures for

the use of University facilities. President Miller agreed.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that IV.B.2 be amended by deletion of

paragraphs 1 and 4. Motion seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent.



Mr. Hug requested that the minutes reflect that deletion of

the two paragraphs from the Student Bill of Rights in no

way abrogates the policy statement as reflected in Policy

Bulletin #69-7.



C. Student Participation in University Government



As constituents of the academic community, students

shall be free, individually and collectively, to

express their views on issues of University policy

and on matters of general interest to the student

body. The student body shall have clearly defined

means to participate in the formulation and appli-

cation of University policy affecting academic and

student affairs. The role of the student govern-

ment and both its general and specific responsibil-

ities shall be made explicit, and the actions of

the student government within the areas of its

jurisdiction shall be reviewed only through orderly

and prescribed procedures.



D. Student Publications



Student publications and the Student Press are

valuable aids in establishing and maintaining an

atmosphere of free and responsible discussion and

of intellectual exploration on the Campus. They

are a means of bringing student concerns to the

attention of the faculty and the Administration

and of formulating student opinion on various

issues on the Campus and in the world at large.



In the delegation of editorial responsibility to

students the University shall provide sufficient

editorial freedom and financial autonomy for the

student publications to maintain their integrity

or purpose as vehicles for free inquiry and free

expression in the academic community.



As safeguards for the editorial freedom of student

publications, the following provisions are neces-

sary:



1. The Student Press shall be free of censorship

and advance approval of copy, and its editors

and managers shall be free to develop their own

editorial policies and news coverage.



2. Editors and managers of student publications

shall be protected from arbitrary suspension

and removal because of student, faculty, admin-

istrative or public disapproval of editorial

policy or content.



3. All student publications shall explicitly state

that the opinions there expressed are not nec-

essarily those of the University or the student

body.



The editorial freedom of student editors and man-

agers shall entail corollary responsibilities to be

governed by the canons of responsible journalism,

and offer reasonable opportunities for rejoinder

to the same audience.



Mr. Humphrey reported that he had received assurance from

the University's insurance agent that the liability policy

presently in force covers the Board of Regents in the event

of legal action. Jim Hardesty reported that he is present-

ly investigating similar coverage for ASUN and has been

assured that there will be no problem in this regard.



Dr. Anderson asked for an explanation of the "canons of

responsible journalism". It was agreed that the canons

differ between organizations and President Miller recom-

mended that the last paragraph be amended as follows:



The editorial freedom of student editors and managers

shall entail corollary responsibilities to be governed

by the canons of responsible journalism, as prescribed

by the Student Publications Board and approved by the

Board of Regents, and offer reasonable opportunities

for rejoinder to the same audience.



Mr. Bilbray moved that the President's recommendation be

approved. Motion seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried without

dissent.



Mr. Hug pointed out that if the Board of Regents must be

responsible for the results of libel suits, it should also

have some voice in establishing basic ground rules.



Further discussion on the Student Bill of Rights was defer-

red to permit discussion of the Revenue Bond Issue.



6. Revenue Bond Issue, Performing Arts Center, UNLV



Chancellor Humphrey introduced Mr. Nicholas Smith, Vice

President, Burrows, Smith and Company. Mr. Smith reported

that the sale of the $930,000 in revenue bonds for the

Performing Arts Center had been advertised and although

four syndicates had been formed, no bids were received

within the 7% limitation. He noted that Standard and Poor's

had assigned an "A" rating to the bonds; however, he pointed

out that the bond market was not good. Mr. Smith noted that

two proposals had been made and introduced a Mr. Carlson,

from Nevada State Bank, who reported that he had been auth-

orized to offer a good faith check in the amount of $18,600

for a one-week option on the bonds at 7% on behalf of Wilson

White, Incorporated of New York City.



Mr. Smith stated that he also had been authorized to offer

an option for 30 days on behalf of Wilson White; however,

he recommended that the University give no options and that

a negotiated sale be authorized and consideration be given

to also including some of the other previously authorized

bond sales. He pointed out that the University has the

authority at law to negotiate sale of these bonds.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the options be reject-

ed and that the Board of Regents authorize negotiations only

for the sale of the $930,000 issue until the next meeting of

the Board of Regents.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that the above recommendation be ap-

proved. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without

dissent.



Dr. Lombardi moved that if the negotiations are successful,

the Chancellor be authorized to approve the sale and sign

the necessary documents. Motion seconded by Mr. Ronzone,

carried without dissent.



Discussion on the Student Bill of Rights was resumed.



V. OFF-CAMPUS FREEDOM OF STUDENTS



A. Exercise of Rights of Citizenship



University students are both citizens and members

of the academic community. As citizens, students

have the same freedom of speech, peaceful assembly

and right of petition that other citizens enjoy,

and, as members of the academic community, they

are subject to the obligations which accrue to

them by virtue of this membership.



B. Institutional Authority and Civil Penalties



The University has no legal authority over a stu-

dent when he is outside University property unless

engaged in official University activities, except

as provided in VI.C. Students who violate the law

may incur penalties prescribed by civil authorities,

but institutional authority shall not be used merely

to duplicate the function of general laws. Only

where institutional interests as an academic commu-

nity are distinct from those of the general communi-

ty, may disciplinary proceedings be invoked by the

Institution. Institutional action shall be inde-

pendent of community pressure.



VI. PROCEDURAL STANDARDS IN DISCIPLINARY PROCEEDINGS



The authorities of educational institutions have the

inherent power and responsibility to protect the edu-

cational purpose through the regulation of the use of

their facilities and through the establishing of

standards of conduct and scholarship for the students

who attend. Disciplinary action plays a role sub-

stantially secondary to example, counseling, guidance

and admonition. When warranted, disciplinary pro-

ceedings shall be enforced, and when they are, proper

procedural safeguards shall be observed to protect

the student from the unfair imposition of penalties.



The administration of discipline shall guarantee pro-

cedural fairness to an accused student. The juris-

dictions of faculty and/or student judicial bodies,

or other regularly established judicial bodies, the

disciplinary responsibilities of University Officials

and the regular disciplinary procedures, including the

student's right to appeal a decision, shall be clearly

formulated and communicated in advance. In all situ-

ations, procedural fair play shall require that the

student shall be informed of the charges against him,

and that he shall be given a fair opportunity to re-

fute them, that the University shall not be arbitrary

in its actions, and that there shall be provision for

appeal of a decision.



A. Standards of Conduct Expected of Students



The University has an obligation to clarify those

standards of behavior which it considers essen-

tial to its educational mission and its community

life. The student must be free from imposed lim-

itations that have no direct relevance to his

education. Offenses shall be clearly defined and

interpreted in a manner consistent with the afore-

mentioned principles. Disciplinary proceedings

shall be instituted only for violations of exist-

ing standards of conduct and those which will be

formulated with student particpation and publish-

ed in advance. It shall be the student's obliga-

tion to become aware of University rules and

regulations and to conduct himself as a respon-

sible citizen, to abide by the University's stat-

ed rules and regulations, and to express either

assenting or dissenting opinions in an orderly

manner.



In response to a question concerning the second sentence of

the above paragraph, Mr. Hardesty stated that he believed

it to be an expression of philosophy and should be retained

in the document. He said he believed there are many things

outside the classroom which are relevant to the educational

process, including dormitory living and use of the Library

or other facilities.



Mr. Hug suggested that the vagueness of the statement would

cause problems.



Mr. Jacobsen moved the second sentence of VI.A be deleted.

Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried with Mr. Bilbray

opposed.



B. Investigation of Student Conduct



1. Premises occupied by students, whether Univer-

sity controlled or not, and the personal pos-

sessions of students, shall not be searched

without permission or without legal authority.



Mr. Walsh explained that the University Administration pres-

ently has the legal authority to search when there is rea-

sonable cause to believe that a serious violation of Univer-

sity regulations has occurred or the law is being broken.

This legal authority has been confirmed by an Attorney Gen-

eral's opinion because of the special University-student

relationship and the high degree of obligation on the part

of the student.



Mr. Bell moved that the paragraph be amended by adding the

sentence: "Such legal authority includes that authority

which arises from the University-student relationship."

Motion seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried with Mr. Bilbray

opposing.



2. Students accused of serious violations of

University regulations, shall be informed of

their rights by the University Official in

charge of student discipline. Institutional

representatives shall not coerce admissions

of guilt.



C. Status of Students Pending Final Action



Pending action on criminal charges off-Campus or

disciplinary proceedings on Campus, the status of

a student shall not be altered or his right to be

present on the Campus and to attend classes sus-

pended, except for reasons relating to his physical

or emotional safety and well-being, or for reasons

relating to the safety and well-being of students,

faculty, or Administration, or to University prop-

erty. In circumstances of the magnitude described

above, the President of the University may suspend

a student pending decision on the charges.



D. Hearing Procedures



A student may request a hearing, before a Hearing

Committee, on a disciplinary charge. The follow-

ing suggested procedure shall satisfy the require-

ments of procedural due process:



1. Hearings shall be instituted with dispatch

after a student is charged with an offense.

Students shall be notified in time to prepare

an adequate defense against those charges.



2. No member of the Hearing Committee who is

otherwise interested in the particular case

may sit in judgment during the proceeding.



3. The student shall be informed, in writing, of

the reasons for the proposed disciplinary

action with sufficient particularity, and in

sufficient time, to insure opportunity to

prepare for the hearing.



4. The student appearing before a Hearing Commit-

tee shall have the right to be assisted in his

defense by an advisor of his choice.



5. The burden of proof rests upon the Officials

bringing the charges.



6. The student shall be given an opportunity to

testify and to present evidence and witnesses.

He shall have an opportunity to hear and ques-

tion adverse witnesses. In no case shall a

Hearing Committee consider statements against

him unless he has been advised of their content

and of the names of those who made them, and

unless he has been given an opportunity to re-

but unfavorable inferences which might other-

wise be drawn.



7. All matters upon which the decisions may be

based shall be introduced into evidence at the

proceeding before a Hearing Committee. The

decision shall be based solely upon such mat-

ters. The admissibility of evidence shall be

determined by the Hearing Board and subject to

review through appeal.



8. (delete)



9. (delete)



Mr. Bell questioned the meaning of the second sentence of

paragraph 6; i. e., whether the statements referred to

would also include oral statements made during the hearing.



Mr. Bilbray moved that the second sentence of paragraph 6

be amended to read: "In no case shall a Hearing Committee

consider written or recorded statements against him unless

he has been advised of their content and of the names of

those who made them, and unless he has been given an oppor-

tunity to rebut unfavorable inferences which might other-

wise be drawn." Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent.



There was concern expressed that paragraph 2 was unclear and

perhaps should be included in later discussion concerning

the total hearing procedure.



Dr. Anderson moved that paragraph 2 be deleted. Motion

seconded by Mr. Bell, carried with Mr. Bilbray opposing.



Mr. Hardesty requested that a paragraph be added to provide

that the student would have the right to determine whether

the hearing would be open or closed. President Miller a-

greed.



Mr. Bilbray moved that a paragraph be added to VI.D. as

follows: "The student is entitled to a closed hearing upon

his request." Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent.



Mr. Bilbray moved adoption of the document as amended.

Motion seconded by Mr. Bell, carried without dissent.



(Complete Student Bill of Rights, as adopted, Preamble

through VI.D.7, is filed with permanent minutes.)



Meeting adjourned at 5:35 P.M.



The regular meeting of the Board of Regents reconvened at 9:30

11. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5000, UNLV



A. President Zorn requested authorization to purchase a

television camera, video tape recorder, a 22" monitor

and other small related equipment to be used by the

Social Services Department. He reported that eleven

firms were solicited; however, a single bid was received

for $5773.74 from Telemation, Inc., Salt Lake City. He

recommended the purchase be approved from funds avail-

able from a Helping Services departmental grant from the

State Welfare Department. Chancellor Humphrey agreed.



B. President Zorn requested approval of a five year lease

of a Burrough's electronic accounting machine, at an

aggregate cost of $6600 per year for the equipment plus

related software and servicing. He noted that there is

an option to purchase the equipment at the end of the

lease period for $2393. President Zorn recommended

approval. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



12. Allocation of Tuition and Fee Waivers, UNLV



President Zorn reported that, based on the Fall, 1969 regu-

lar enrollment of 4124, the 3% quota permitted by State Law

will provide 124 waivers of in-state fees and out-of-state

tuition to UNLV. He recommended that these waivers be

allocated in 1970-71 as follows:



Music 20%

Athletics 50%

Other 30%



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



13. Graduate Student Organization, UNLV



President Zorn noted that he had transmitted, with his rec-

ommendation for approval, a proposed constitution for a

Graduate Student Organization at UNLV. (Proposed constitu-

tion was included with agenda, identified as Ref. D, and is

on file in Chancellor's Office.)



President Zorn introduced Mr. Harry Syphus, Acting President

of the Graduate Student Organization.



Mr. Bilbray reported that he had been contacted by Mr. John

Cevette, President of CSUN, who had requested that this

matter be tabled until a later meeting to allow time for

agreement to be reached between the CSUN and the Graduate

Student Organization.



Mr. Jasper, CSUN Vice President, endorsed this request. Mr.

Syphus expressed opposition to deferment, stating that there

have already been a number of attempts to hold joint dis-

cussions with CSUN and these have not been successful. He

suggested that official recognition of a Graduate Student

Organization would improve their position in negotiating

with CSUN concerning representation on University commit-

tees.



There was concern expressed that the proposed constitution

had not been thoroughly reviewed and perhaps should be re-

viewed by the Board in some detail at the same time the

ASUN and CSUN constitutions are reviewed.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that further consideration be tabled

until the June meeting. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray,

failed with three yes and four no votes.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that a Graduate Student Organization at

UNLV be approved in principle, that the proposed assessment

of $2 per semester fee be approved, but that approval of

the constitution be deferred until a later meeting. Motion

seconded by Dr. White, carried without dissent.



14. Bid Opening, UNR



President Miller reported that bids were opened February 25,

1970 for a radiation shield at the Nuclear Engineering fa-

cility, noting that the shield is a safety requirement which

must be provided.



Bids received were:



Murphy Brothers Company $5500

Roger Brothers Company 5956

Pearce Construction Company 6749

Allen Gallaway 7230

George Waltenspiel 7524



Chancellor Humphrey noted that approval of this bid should

have been requested at the March meeting; however, it was

inadvertently omitted from the agenda. To delay the award

of the contract until after the April meeting might have

resulted in the withdrawal of the bid and required the

bidding procedure to be repeated. Therefore, Mr. Humphrey

stated, authorization was given to proceed with the con-

tract award to the low bidder, Murphy Brothers Company, sub-

ject to confirmation by the Board at this meeting. Presi-

dent Miller recommended confirmation. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



15. Alpha Chi Omega



President Miller recommended approval of a request by Alpha

Chi Omega, a national collegiate sorority, to establish a

colony at UNR as a first step toward the eventual establish-

ment of a chapter. President Miller pointed out that their

National Membership Standards state: "Alpha Chi Omega has

no written or unwritten statement or policy which would

specifically inhibit selection of members on the basis of

race, creed, color or national origin."



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that establishment of the

colony in the Fall of 1970 be approved.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



16. Change in Title of Graduate Assistants



President Miller recommended that the title of Graduate

Teaching and Research Assistants be changed to Graduate

Teaching and Research Fellows, noting that this request had

come from this group of University student employees.



Mr. Warburton stated that this subject had been discussed

by the DRI Research Planning Committee and the Institute

had subsequently decided to request a similar change in

title for such employees. However, he noted that in all

probability the old title of Research Assistant would con-

tinue to be used on proposals to Federal Agencies to avoid

any possible misunderstanding as to the role these employees

are playing under the terms of grants or contracts. Presi-

dent Zorn stated that a decision had not yet been made to

ask for this change to be effective at UNLV.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the titles be changed

from Assistant to Fellow at UNR and DRI, effective immedi-

ately.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



17. Restoration of Morrill Hall



President Miller reported that the UNR Alumni Association

had requested that the Board of Regents approve a fund

raising drive by the Alumni Association to underwrite the

costs of restoration and rehabilitation of Morrill Hall.

President Miller introduced Mr. Jack Mc Auliffe, President

of the UNR Alumni Association, who stated that this project

was of great interest to the Association and asked for the

following commitments from the Regents:



(1) That the restoration project be approved, at least in

principle; and



(2) That the Association's plan to utilize at least a por-

tion of the building as an Alumni House be confirmed.



President Miller endorsed the request. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the Alumni Association request be

approved.



18. Approval of Transfers of Funds, UNR



President Miller requested approval of the following trans-

fers of funds:



#299 $4000 from Contingency Reserve to President's Office,

UNR, to provide additional operating funds as follows:



Staff travel to attend Chancellor's Advisory

Cabinet and Board of Regents meetings in

Las Vegas $ 866



MT/ST machine rental 6 months @$264 1584



Interview Expense, Dean, General

University Extension 1300



Supplies, telephone, miscellaneous 250



Total $4000



#304 $10,000 from Evening Division, UNR to Off-Campus

Programs, UNR. This represents a subsidy to Off-

Campus programs necessitated by increased salary

rate paid faculty of this program.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the above fund transfers be approved

as recommended.



19. Estimated Financial Program, FY 1970, DRI



Mr. Warburton recalled that in November, 1969, the 1968-69

year end financial report was presented and a closing defi-

cit of $43,847 was acknowledged. He further noted that the

1969-70 financial plan for DRI was presented to the Board

in January, 1970 with the understanding that it would be

revised for the fourth quarter. This revision, which had

been mailed with the agenda, reflects an anticipated end-

of-year deficit of approximately $106,000.



Mr. Warburton proposed the following action by DRI to offset

part of this deficit:



(1) $31,645 in the unrestricted, unallocated category be

used to offset part of the current year's deficit;



(2) Approximately $10,000 of the Principal Investigator's

Fund (set aside from indirect cost recovery during FY

1970) be used; and



(3) Approximately $38,000 of the NSF Institutional Grant

(included in the unrestricted, unallocated balance of

the Financial Statement) be used.



He noted that the sum of these three funds amounts to some

$80,000 leaving approximately $26,000 unfunded deficit

accounts.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that it is highly desirable that

a decision be made concerning the funding of the anticipat-

ed $105,974 deficit in order that FY 1970 can be closed in

the black. He recommended that Mr. Warburton's proposal

as shown above be approved and the necessary transfers be

implemented immediately.



Chancellor Humphrey also noted that $39,595 of the projected

year and deficit occurs in two sales accounts within the

Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics. He recommended that DRI

be instructed to exert every effort to bring these sales

accounts to balance by June 30, 1970. He stated that fol-

lowing the implementation of the above actions, DRI will

have done everything financially feasible to resolve the

projected deficit. He recommended that the Board agree that

the problem be further reviewed at the June meeting and the

Administration be directed to make a recommendation at that

time for the complete funding of any remaining deficit.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



20. Reports on Procedure for Evaluation of Faculty



President Zorn commented on a report filed by UNLV in re-

sponse to a request for information pertaining to the pro-

cedures for the evaluation of faculty. The report was in-

cluded with the agenda as Ref. H and is filed with perma-

nent minutes.



President Miller commented on the report filed in UNR, in-

cluded with the agenda as Ref. I and also filed with perma-

nent minutes.



21. Report on Evaluation of Faculty Interest and Effectiveness

in Student Counseling



Reports on this subject were also transmitted with the

agenda and discussed. UNLV report identified as Ref. H.

UNR report identified as Ref. J. Both reports filed with

permanent minutes.



22. Report on Possibilities for Budgeting for Student Evaluation

of Faculty



President Miller reported that in connection with the bud-

geting of student evaluation of teaching and of courses,

the following costs have been supplied by ASUN with respect

to the program of evaluation conducted during the current

year:



Computer Costs:



Consulting $ 400.00

Card Costs 103.00

Key Punching 285.00

Printing Costs 1,250.00

Supplies 249.34

Total $2,287.34



President Miller stated that as long as the evaluation of

faculty is conducted by the students as it presently is,

the costs for it should be borne by ASUN. However, he said,

if a different kind of evaluation were to be developed by

faculty in cooperation with students, and if it were to be

the responsibility of the Administration of the Departments

and Colleges, then consideration should be given to budget-

ing funds for this in the regular University budget.



Dr. Anderson stated that he was interested in seeing the

students and faculty cooperate in developing a procedure

which is acceptable to both groups.



Miss Del Papa, ASUN President-elect, stated that the ASUN

will soon be making long range plans on how the teacher

evaluation will be approached and will certainly wish to

have faculty cooperation.



President Miller stated that if this evaluation is to be

handled as a cooperative effort, the funding should be

provided, at least in part, by the University; however, if

it is to be done solely by the students, the funding should

also be handled by the students.



Mr. Hug said he believed that student evaluation of the

faculty should be required. Dr. Anderson agreed but sug-

gested they move slowly with a mutually acceptable program.



There was a consensus that the Administration should proceed

to devise a method for participation in student evaluation

of faculty.



23. Report on Tuition and Fee Waivers for Selected Students



President Miller reported that discussions have been held

concerning the problems associated with tuition and fee

waivers for selected Student Officers. He recommended that

such waivers be extended to the President of ASUN, the two

Vice Presidents of ASUN, the President of the ASUN Senate,

the Chief Justice of the Student Judicial Council and the

Editor of the Sagebrush. He recommended that these waivers

be made available during the Fall and Spring semesters of

the full year in which the Student Officers serve. Addi-

tionally, he recommended that a tuition waiver be granted

to the ASUN President for the Summer Session preceding the

full year in which he serves. President Miller noted that

the out-of-state waivers could come from the "other" cate-

gory of out-of-state tuition waivers which are available to

UNR.



President Zorn noted that there is considerable flexibility

for the 30% "other" category at UNLV and provision could be

made from this category for some student leadership waivers.

However, he said he believed it would be appropriate that a

recommendation be sought from the Scholarship Committee.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that tuition and fee waivers be granted to

the following ASUN Officers:



ASUN President, Summer, Fall and Spring

ASUN Vice Presidents, Fall and Spring

President ASUN Senate, Fall and Spring

Chief Justice, Student Judicial Council, Fall and Spring

Editor of Sagebrush, Fall and Spring



24. Report on the Committee of the Whole



Mr. Hug presented the minutes of the March 13, 1970 meeting

of the Committee of the Whole, as follows:



The Committee of the Whole met on the above date in the

Travis Lounge, Jot Travis Student Union, University of

Nevada, Reno, with Chairman Hug presiding.



1. President Miller and members of the UNR Adminis-

tration and faculty presented the following Phase I

proposals:



A. Master of Arts in the Teaching of Foreign

Languages



B. Master of Arts and Ph. D. in Comparative

Literature



C. Master of Science in Information and Computer

Science



D. Baccalaureate Degree in Interdisciplinary

Program in Communication Arts



E. Master's Degree Program in Geography



2. President Miller also distributed written responses

to earlier Phase I proposals by UNLV for:



A. Master of Arts in Anthropology



B. Master of Arts in Sociology



C. Ph. D. in English



Following presentation of the Phase I proposals, Chan-

cellor Humphrey reviewed the earlier action of the Board

when the function of the Committee of the Whole had or-

iginally been defined; that is, that no action would be

taken by the Board of Regents to approve new degree

program proposals until a full review of existing pro-

grams had occurred. That review, he noted, was sched-

uled to follow at this meeting.



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that a ten year plan had

been submitted by each University in 1967 and that an

updated plan would be submitted prior to the 1971 ses-

sion of the Legislature. He pointed out that no approv-

al of the ten year plans had been given at the time they

were presented; rather, it was agreed that new program

proposals would be reviewed in two separate steps:

Phase I, and if authorized by the Board, Phase II. He

noted that Phase I presentations have been made for 35

new programs by the two Campuses; 21 by UNR and 14 by

UNLV.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the Presidents have

been requested to submit a priority ranking on their

proposals prior to presentation of additional materials.

He suggested the Board could then proceed with the fol-

lowing alternatives:



(1) Postpone and not authorize a given program to

proceed to Phase II;



(2) Authorize the program to proceed to Phase II status

but not authorize its inclusion in the 1971-73 bud-

get request; or



(3) Authorize the program to proceed to Phase II and

agree to include in 1971-73 budget request as a

new program.



Presentations of additional justification for new pro-

grams in priority order, will begin in April and should

be concluded no later than May.



3. Review of Existing Academic Programs



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in the request

for a review of existing programs, the form was not

stipulated; however, it was agreed that emphasis

would be placed upon three areas. Accordingly, the

review proceeded, as follows:



A. Review of all programs (identified by academic

Departments as the cost centers) in the top

quartile of the cost of instruction study and

recommendation made for continuance, discontinu-

ance, or modification of such programs and the

reasons for such recommendations.



Written reports were presented and the recom-

mendations contained therein were endorsed by

each President.



B. Review of all courses in the lowest quartile of

enrollment in 1968-69 by level and recommenda-

tion made concerning the continuance, discon-

tinuance, or modification of such courses and

the reasons for such recommendation.



Written reports were presented and the recom-

mendations contained therein were endorsed by

each President.



C. Review of all courses listed in each catalog

which were not taught in either 1967-68 or

1968-69, identification of the most recent time

the course was taught, and a recommendation

concerning deletion of the course from the

catalog.



Written reports were presented and the recom-

mendations contained therein were endorsed by

each President.



(All reports noted above are on file in the Chancellor's

Office.)



Mr. Hug also reported that the Committee of the Whole had

met on the morning of April 11, 1970 at which time a Phase I

presentation had been made concerning the offering of a bac-

calaureate degree program in Law Enforcement by the Nevada

Technical Institute, UNR. The Committee had also considered

and approved a request from President Zorn that a Bachelor

of Arts in Social Science, on which a Phase I presentation

had been made in February, be allowed to proceed immediately

to Phase II, based on the fact that no additional budget

support is required.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the reports of the Committee of the

Whole be accepted.



25. Designation of Banks



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the University of Nevada

System presently has the following bank accounts:



Board of Regents

First National Bank of Nevada, Reno



Accounts Payable Revolving

First National Bank of Nevada, Reno



Payroll Clearing

First National Bank of Nevada, Reno



State Reimbursement Revolving

First National Bank of Nevada, Reno



Bond Sinking Fund

First National Bank of Nevada, Reno



Auxiliary Enterprises

Security National Bank of Nevada, Reno

National Defense Student Loan

Pioneer Citizen's Bank, Reno



Petty Cash Revolving

Valley Bank of Nevada, Reno

Mr. Humphrey recommended that two new accounts be establish-

ed July 1, 1970 to accommodate the transfer of all UNLV

accounting to that Campus: (1) at Valley Bank of Nevada,

University Branch, for payroll clearing and Board of Regents

funds, (2) a State Reimbursement Revolving Fund at Nevada

National Bank, Las Vegas, by transfer of $25,000 from a

similar account in Reno. Mr. Humphrey noted that the latter

account should be enlarged by State appropriation or a dif-

ferent method of securing the operating appropriation should

be approved; however, he stated that a further recommenda-

tion on this point would be made when the 1971 Legislative

proposals are presented.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

with Mr. Bilbray abstaining, that the Chancellor's recom-

mendation be approved.



26. Approval of Transfers of Funds, UNR



President Miller requested approval of the following fund

transfers:



#338 $4,000 from Summer Session Contingency Reserve, UNR,

to Classified Salaries ($3900) and Operating ($100),

to provide funds for a clerical position for the

period April 1, 1970 through December 31, 1970.



#339 $10,525 from UNR Contingency Reserve to Supervised

Student Teaching to provide funds to pay Honoraria to

cooperating teachers for supervision of student teach-

Geography Department to fund five Graduate Assistants

for the Spring semester.



#341 $2,848 from UNR Contingency Reserve to Psychology

Department to provide funds for temporary profession-

al teaching positions.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that the above transfers be approved as recom-

mended.



27. Cornerstone Ceremonies, UNR



President Miller recommended that May 31, 1970 be approved

as the date for the cornerstone ceremonies for the Chemistry

building (Phase I of the Physical Sciences Complex, UNR),

and that the dedication of the Albert Hilliard Memorial

Plaza also take place on that date. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the date be approved as recommended.



28. Estate of Mabel Stanaway Briggs



President Miller reported that under the terms of the will

of Mabel Stanaway Briggs, UNR received $53,955.45. Interest

earned by this account as of April 9, 1970 brought the total

to $60,573.48. He noted that there were no restrictions on

the gift except that it be used for the benefit of the Uni-

versity of Nevada, Reno, and he recommended that it be used

to fund the following projects.



(1) Relocation of Clark Field $30,000



(2) Serials inventory project in the Library

which will bring the Serials up to satis-

factory standard of accuracy and complete-

ness $16,773



(3) A protective wall above the existing

Special Collections Department wall in the

Library $ 4,000



(4) Steel Library shelving in the Library

to help relieve a serious shelf space

problem $ 5,900



Total $56,573



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the above projects be funded from the

Mabel Stanaway Briggs estate with the stipulation that a

memorial plaque be placed in appropriate areas.



29. Progress Reports on Capital Improvement Projects



A progress report on UNR projects under the supervision of

the Director of Physical Plant, and a status report of the

projects under the supervision of the State Planning Board

were distributed (both reports are on file in the Chancel-

lor's Office).



30. Report on Elko Community College



Dr. Donnelly reported that the Elko Community College Ad-

visory Board had, at a meeting on April 6, 1970, adopted

the following resolution:



"The Advisory Board requests that the University of Nevada

System modify its policy concerning admissions to allow any

student graduated from Elko Community College in an Associ-

ate of Arts or Associate of Science program to be admitted

to the University as a regular student in a baccalaureate

level program."



Dr. Donnelly recommended this request be referred to the

Presidents of UNR and UNLV for reference to their respective

Faculty Senates. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



The meeting adjourned at 12:00 noon.

04-10-1970
