the Eugene Warner Endowment Fund and transferred to

an account on the UNLV Campus.



Several months ago, UNLV requested that the Board

withdraw funds from the Eugene Warner Endowment Fund

to construct a reflecting pool as requested by Mr.

Warner.



The bids came in over budget; therefore, the pool was

not constructed and the funds were not withdrawn from

the endowment fund. In discussions with Mr. Warner

it has been made clear that there was a misunderstand-

ing of the intent of the donor in establishing the

endowment funds. From the funds available, the re-

flecting pool will be constructed and the remainder

of the funds will be used on Middle East Studies.



(13) At the August 1, 1984 meeting, the Board approved the

use of Capital Improvement Fee Funds to construct two

facilities for storage of toxic wastes, and $35,000

was authorized for each. The UNLV facility will re-

quire substantial reconstruction which the State

Public Works Board has estimated will cost $50,000.



Approved the use of an additional $15,000 of Capital

Improvement Fee Funds as follows:



UNLV $11,850

CCCC $ 3,150



(14) Approved authorization to use $7000 of Capital Im-

provement Fee Funds to repair the elevator at NNCC.



Ms. Del Papa moved for adoption of the Consent Agenda and

approval of the prepared agenda with the authority to change

the order of items as specified throughout the meeting.

Mrs. Sheerin seconded. Motion carried.



2. Chairman's Report



Chairman Klaich informed the Board that he has been meeting

with the Chancellor's staff once a week to discuss System

business and has found it very beneficial.



He indicated that he and Mrs. Gallagher have been spending

a number of hours at the Legislature and commended Mrs.

Gallagher for her support and encouragement.



3. Report on Annual Evaluations



The Presidents reported on the annual evaluations conducted

on their Campuses, as provided by the UNS Code.



A. President Crowley reported that UNR's evaluation has

been in effect for several yers. Public service, teach-

ing and research are evaluated by the College, Depart-

ment and the Dean, but primarily the evaluations are

based on peer review. A Merit Review Committee evalu-

ates the equity of resources and the process. Since

the revision of the Code, the "Satisfactory" category

has been renamed "Commendable". President Crowley

stated there were 62% rated satisfactory last year and

76% this year. There are approximately 1% rated un-

satisfactory each year.



Mrs. Kenney requested that Regents receive copies of

the standard evaluation forms.



B. President Maxson reported that the teaching function was

the most important in the evaluation process and the

most difficult to evaluate. It is easier to evaluate

research and community service than teaching. UNLV has

a mandatory student evaluation form which is forwarded

to the Dean of the College. The evaluation process in-

volves the faculty, Dean and Vice President of Academic

Affairs. Only if there is a problem with an evaluation

does the President become involved. The review process

takes place at the end of 3 years. If there are ques-

tions in regard to renewal of a contract or denial of

tenure, a discussion is held with the faculty member.

President Maxson indicated that 5% were not to be re-

newed this year. He stated that recruitment was very

important and if recruiting is well done, the number of

faculty rated as satisfactory should be high.



Chairman Klaich recessed the meeting to prepare for the UNLV

namings of facilities. The evaluations were resumed after the

presentations.



4. Approved the Naming of the Engineering Building, UNLV



Approved the naming of the Engineering building the Thomas

T. Beam Engineering building. President Maxson introduced

Mr. Thomas T. Beam, who has devoted much of his time and

personal counsel to UNLV.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval to name the Engineering building

at UNLV the Thomas T. Beam Engineering building. Mr.

Karamanos seconded. Motion carried.



5. Approved the Naming of the School of Engineering, UNLV



Approved naming the School of Engineering the Howard R.

Hughes School of Engineering. President Maxson introduced

Mr. John Goolsby, Senior Vice President of Summa Corpora-

tion, and Mr. Will Lummis, Chairman of the Board for Summa

Corporation. The Summa Corporation has donated a very

large corporate gift to UNLV and has devoted much interest

in UNLV Engineering School.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval to name the School of Engineer-

ing at UNLV the Howard R. Hughes School of Engineering. Mr.

Karamanos seconded. Motion carried.



6. Approved the Naming of the Silver Bowl, UNLV



Approved naming the Silver Bowl the Sam Boyd Silver Bowl.

The Boyd family has donated $1.5 million to upgrade the

Silver Bowl. President Maxson indicated that the gift was

not only for the University, but also for the community.



Mrs. Kenney moved approval to name the Silver Bowl at UNLV

the Sam Boyd Silver Bowl. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion

carried.



7. Approved the Appointment of Custodian Bank, UNS



Approved the appointment of a custodial bank for the Uni-

versity of Nevada System. The Staff Advisory Committee of

the Regents Investment Committee, presented the following

resolution:



RESOLUTION #85-5



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System Treasurer's

Office invests the surplus operating cash of the Uni-

versity of Nevada System in money market instruments;

and



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System Treasurer's

Office uses various custodian and agent accounts to

market debt instruments; and



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System Treasurer's

Office requires the services of a Nevada Bank with a

New York correspondent bank relationship to serve as a

3rd party holder of money market securities and col-

lateral for money market debt instruments and to cen-

tralize money market transactions on a delivery versus

payment basis; and



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System, in addition

to money market instruments and collateral for money

market debt instruments, has title to various other

types of non-cash non-endowment assets which are ap-

propriate for holding in safekeeping by a Nevada Cus-

todian Bank; and



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada System Chancellor's

Office requested from Nevada Banks the availability and

cost of custodian services to meet these requirements,



NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents

appoints Nevada National Bank as the University of Ne-

vada System Custodian Bank; and



FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents authorizes

the Deputy Chancellor to close other custodian bank

agency agreements and accounts, including cancellation

of Resolution #84-2; and



BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents

authorizes the Deputy Chancellor to enter into a Non-

Management Agency Agreement with Nevada National Bank

for the purpose of arranging for the custodian services

required for safekeeping of all UNS non-cash, non-endow-

ment assets, including money market securities and col-

lateral for money market debt instruments; and



BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents of

the University of Nevada System authorizes the Deputy

Chancellor to designate the appropriate University of

Nevada System Officers to direct the Nevada Custodian

Bank as to any dispositions, acquisitions or substitu-

tions of any assets held in the account, and to direct

investment of cash balances in the account to the

Custodian Bank's Government Securities Cash Management

Fund.



Mr. Karamanos moved approval of the appointment of Nevada

National Bank as the Custodial Bank for UNS and moved ap-

proval of the resolution. Ms. Del Papa seconded. Motion

carried.



3. Report on Annual Evaluations (continued)



C. President Calabro informed the Board that tenured, non-

tenured, teaching and non-teaching faculty are evaluated

each semester by peers, the students and their super-

visors. A management plan is developed at the beginning

of each year for the faculty and a faculty prospectus

also is developed. There are 7 areas covered in this

prospectus: teaching, student advisement, professional

organizations, ability to work, service on committees,

recognition by colleagues and recognition by the com-

munity.



He indicated that there are 155 part-time staff who also

are evaluated each semester. There were 26 tenured fac-

ulty and 17 non-tenured faculty evaluated this year (65%

excellent; 35% commendable; 1% pending further review).



D. President Eardley reported that TMCC has 350 part-time

faculty throughout the Reno-Sparks area. The main con-

cern at TMCC is the teaching ability of these part-time

faculty; therefore, workshops on teaching techniques

are provided by the College. President Eardley empha-

sized that the evaluation process is a tool for improve-

ment, not a tool to dismiss people. The attitude and

the pride of the College are very important to the staff

and faculty. He indicated that 2/3 were rated excellent

and that non-instruction personnel also are evaluated

on the same form. 50 full-time teaching instructors

have been evaluated, with a total of 72 professionals

evaluated. He stated that meritorious pay is a very

sensitive subject at the Community Colleges.



E. President Meacham said CCCC conducts an extensive eval-

uation with student, supervisor, self and administration

involvement. There is an Evaluation and Merit Committee

at CCCC. He stated that 1% were less than satisfactory

and 3% in Administration were less than satisfactory.

He felt that the process was working well at CCCC.



F. President Berg informed the Board that there are 4 phas-

es to NNCC evaluation -- student, peer, self and Admin-

istration. He indicated that if there were only one

person in a particular field at NNCC, TMCC conducts the

peer evaluation based on a syllabi prepared by the one

being evaluated. President Berg stated that 27% were

rated excellent; 50% were rated commendable; 23% were

rated satisfactory.



Mrs. Sheerin requested a report from the Campuses regarding

the success of the new Code review process of tenured facul-

ty.



Chairman Klaich requested a written format for reports be

constructed by the Chancellor's Office.



President Maxson emphasized that the perception of tenure

is negative, but that tenure is a very productive incentive

for research and teaching. The Code has resulted in im-

provement in productivity by the tenured faculty and the

evaluation process is working.



8. New Business



Mr. Karamanos requested discussion on A. B. 356 regarding

limited use of animals for research and prohibits inter-

ference with research. Chairman Klaich stated that only

appropriation bills are supported by the Board, which are

presented in the Board's Legislative Package, and the Board

does not take a stand on other bills.



President Crowley stated that personnel at UNR testified to

protect programs at the School of Medicine. Further, Dean

Robert M. Daugherty was asked to assist in drafting the bill

but President Crowley emphasized that UNR was not the spon-

sor, and there has been no indication by either the Dean or

the President that the Board supports this bill.



Ms. Del Papa expressed her appreciation for the public ap-

pearing before the Board, and indicated to the public that

A. B. 356 was not part of the Legislative Package. She

strongly emphasized that the public comments need to be

heard by the Legislators, not the Board of Regents.



Mr. Dart Anthony, Humane Society Representative, spoke in

opposition of the bill and asked the Board to take a posi-

tion on A. B. 356.



Amendment to Item 8, Page 9



Mr. Karamanos requested discussion on A. B. 356 regarding

limited use of animals for research and prohibits inter-

ference with research.



Mr. Dart Anthony, Humane Society Representative, spoke in

opposition of the bill and asked the Board to take a posi-

tion on A. B. 356.



Chairman Klaich explained that the Board's legislative

package consists largely of appropriation bills, which re-

quire prior approval from the Board. As to other matters

that may not involve an appropriation, but would indirectly

affect the System, the Board may or may not take an offi-

cial position.



President Crowley stated that personnel at UNR testified to

protect programs at the School of Medicine. Further, Dean

Robert M. Dougherty was asked to assist in drafting the bill

but President Crowley emphasized that UNR was not the spon-

sor, and there has been no indication by either the Dean or

the President that the Board supports this bill.



Ms. Del Papa expressed her appreciation for the public ap-

pearing before the Board, and indicated to the public that

A. B. 356 was not part of the Legislative Package. She

strongly emphasized that the public comments need to be

heard by the Legislators, not the Board of Regents.

Mr. Karamanos moved approval of the Housing and Dining Fees

17. Approved Phase II, Educational Specialist Degree, UNR



Approved the Phase II Proposal for an Educational Specialist

degree at UNR. See Ref. B, filed in the Regents Office.



The College of Education at UNR currently offers an Educa-

tion Specialist Certificate, which requires one year of

course work beyond the Master's degree. This proposal

would change the Certificate to an Ed. S. degree, which

also would require one year of formal training beyond the

Master's degree. Because this is an existing program, no

Phase I Proposal was required.



The Ed. S. degree will be awarded in 3 Departments: Coun-

seling and Guidance Personnel Services, Curriculum and

Instruction, and Education Administration and Higher Edu-

cation, with options offered in 6 areas.



The proposed date of implementation is Fall, 1985.



Estimated financial allocation by the 4th year of the pro-

gram is $24,400. This is primarily for graduate assistants

and faculty hired on letter of appointment who will teach

lower division courses. This will release senior faculty

to teach graduate level classes. Financial support will be

provided through current and requested budgets.



Mr. Karamanos moved approval of the Phase II, Educational

Specialist Degree at UNR. Ms. Del Papa seconded. Motion

carried.



18. Approved the Appointment of Dean, College of Business

Administration, UNR

Amato as Dean, College of Business Administration, at UNR,

Amato as Dean of College of Business Administration at UNR,

effective July 1, 1985. Mrs. Sheerin seconded. Motion

Presidents Crowley and Maxson presented annual reports on

Interstate Athletics for their Campuses.



President Crowley informed the Board that UNR's Intercol-

legiate Athletic Board submitted several recommendations

which have been or are in the process of being implemented,

such as student fees, compensation for coaches, academic

advising, audits and increased support for women's programs.

The operating budget for women's programs has been increased

by 50%.



The Athletic Board has developed a 5-year plan which in-

cludes these recommendations; however, there are still some

recommendations that have not been addressed because of in-

adequate funding. The Governor has proposed in his budget

to return athletics to the level held 3 years ago. An ad-

ditional $40,000 would allow a conference home for women's

programs. There is also a need for additional monies for

grants-in-aid for men's and women's programs, salaries, a

sports information director for women, and the ski program

(which is currently funded by private donations). There is

a need for combined State and student support in order for

athetics to be successful.



Mrs. Sheerin requested information regarding the status of

academic advising. President Crowley informed her that

there are 2 graduate assistants for the athletic program

who report to the Academic Affairs Vice President. He is

hopeful a full-time advisor can be employed in the future.



President Maxson informed the Board that UNLV's Athletic

Department is operating in the black. He submitted a hand-

out on the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, filed

in the Regents Office, and showed a slide presentation de-

picting the various athletic programs at UNLV.



Mr. Karamanos commended Athletic Director Brad Rothermel

for his work during the last 3 years.



21. Report on ASUN Activities



ASUN President Chris Polimeni presented a report on last

year's ASUN activities, stating that there were 4 areas of

concentration: representation, activities, allocation of

funding and publications. ASUN sponsored 110 clubs and

organizations with $76,000, and also sponsored student

activities costing $100,000. There are 3 publications

sponsored by ASUN: Sagebrush, Brushfire and Artemisia.

Last year, ASUN provided free legal services to 250 stu-

dents.



In response to student needs, ASUN implemented increased

hours at the Library, expansion of the Student Union build-

ing, an escort service for women on the Campus, safety

lights on Virginia Street, inclusion of graduate students

at ASUN activities, banking services for students, a trans-

fer of $100,000 of retained earnings from the Bookstore with

the earned interest providing 42 scholarships, and involve-

ment with ASUN legislation.



Mr. Polimeni expressed his appreciation for the experience

as ASUN President during the last year. Mrs. Sparks com-

mended Mr. Polimeni for his involement with ASUN.

Approved to change the terms of the deed of trust for the

Vegas Verdes Apartment Motel donated by Mr. Claude Howard

to the University of Nevada School of Medicine. Ref. D

dation that the Rodmans' proposal be accepted.

Sparks seconded. Motion carried.



24. Approved the Handbook Amendment, Title 4, Chapter 3,

Section 23, Military Leave



Approved the amendment to the Handbook, Title 4, Chapter 3,

Section 12, Military Leave, as contained in Ref. E, filed

in the Regents Office. The military leave provisions were

passed the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act.

This proposed amendment reflects the changes in the leave

of the aforesaid Act.

Handbook regarding Residency Status. Ms. Del Papa seconded.

Motion carried.



27. Approved the Handbook Amendment, Title 4, Chapter 3,

Section 10.7, Sick Leave



Approved deletion of the following policy in the Handbook,

Title 4, Chapter 3, Section 10.7, Sick Leave. This benefit,

adopted in 1969, is misleading in that funds have never been

appropriated for its implementation.

authorize voluntary health examinations for in-

dividual faculty members, viz.: one standard health

examination per academic year, including at least

a C. B. C. and a chest x-ray.

in the Handbook regarding Sick Leave. Mrs. Gallagher

seconded. Motion carried.

ful in backgrounding of the System.

30. New Business



A. Mrs. Gallagher gave a legislative update regarding A.

B. 356 with many testimonies given for and against the

bill. It was reported that the Board of Regents would

not take a stand on this bill, to which Mrs. Gallagher

replied that the Board does not take a stand on every

bill which is concerned with Higher Education, and

emphasized that the Regents support their Administra-

tors of the System institutions.



Mr. Karamanos, as an individual, expressed his disap-

proval of this bill.



Mrs. Gallagher stated that the bill was to be amended

and felt that the committee would pass the amended bill.



Chairman Klaich stated that the Board of Regents are

elected and are authorized to govern the System of

Higher Education. Their authority is over the Presi-

dents who preside over their Deans. The Board is not

elected to preside over the health and welfare of the

State.



Mrs. Gallagher continued her report, stating that the

bill regarding a cap on spending, presented by Senator

Bob Ryan, has not come out of committee. The bill

excludes only student fees and would include the events

centers and bookstores. The school districts have op-

posed this bill.



B. Chairman Klaich extended his appreciation for the hos-

pitality offered the Regents and staff by Mr. and Mrs.

Foley and Mr. and Mrs. Boman.



C. Mrs. Kenney requested information regarding merit pay

with the reply being that the Presidents will report
