1. Approval of Minutes



The minutes of the regular session of March 21, 1975 were

submitted for approval.



It was pointed out that on page 73, in the discussion on

the smoking policy, the motion for reconsideration of earli-

er action was credited incorrectly to Mrs. Fong, rather than

to Mr. Ross.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval of the minutes with the above

correction. Motion seconded by Mr. John Buchanan, carried

without dissent.



2. Memorial to Nedra Joyce



Chairman Buchanan requested approval by the Board of the

following memorial statement to Nedra Joyce:



The Regents of the University of Nevada express their

sincere sorrow over the death of Nedra Joyce, Las

Vegas newswoman and former Regent. Mrs. Joyce served

as a member of the Board until December, 1974, follow-

ing her appointment by Governor O'Callaghan in March,

1973. Although her service as a Regent was not lengthy,

she brought to the Board a great deal of knowledge and

experience in higher education in the State of Nevada,

earned through her dedication to her profession and her

deep interest in the students and faculty of the Uni-

versity System.



Mrs. Joyce will be missed by her family and her friends.

She will also be missed by those of the University com-

munity who knew her and valued her counsel and appreci-

ated her support of higher education.



The Regents extend their sincere and deep sympathy to

Mrs. Joyce's family.



Miss Mason moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



3. Report of Gifts and Grants



Acceptance of the gifts and grants as reported by the

Division Presidents was recommended (report identified as

Ref. 3 and filed with permanent minutes).



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried without dissent.



4. Intercollegiate Athletics Fee, UNLV



President Baepler recommended that, effective with the Fall,

1975 semester, the $9 per semester athletics fee be discon-

tinued, with an alternative to be offered whereby students

would be permitted to purchase season tickets for basket-

ball and football at a greatly reduced price and seats will

be set aside for students on a per-game basis at a price

substantially below existing box office prices. Further

details of the proposal were contained in a memorandum

from President Baepler (identified as Ref. 4 and filed with

permanent minutes). Chancellor Humphrey recommended ap-

proval.



Mr. Ross expressed concern that such action might be con-

sidered by the Legislature and by donors to the inter-

collegiate athletics program as failure on the part of the

students to support a program that receives heavy support

from the community and might therefore have an adverse ef-

fect on the continued support from these areas.



There was discussion of the alternative of suspending the

athletics fee for one year only with the final determina-

tion to be made after an evaluation of that experience.



Miss Thompson moved that the intercollegiate athletics fee

at UNLV be suspended for one year, beginning Fall semester,

1975, with a final determination to be made at the 4th

meeting in 1976. Motion seconded by Miss Mason, carried

with Mr. Ross abstaining.



5. Proposal for Exceptional Children's Service Program



President Baepler requested approval of the establishment

within the Special Education Department, College of Educa-

tion, of a unit to be called "The Exceptional Children's

Service Program", which will provide a series of special

tests for exceptional children. He explained that this

type of service has been offered by the Department in a

limited way but the demand has expanded to where it is now

necessary that the activity become self supporting. Presi-

dent Baepler also noted that this proposal from the UNLV

College of Education was also joined by the UNR College of

Education and endorsed by President Milam. He requested

that a fee schedule for this service, to be offered both

at UNR and UNLV, be established based upon task units as

they relate to any of the tests or procedures administered

to each student. The cost per test in terms of task units

will be based upon the family's ability to pay as deter-

mined by Federal guidelines. The maximum fee per unit will

be $15 and the minimum fee per unit will be $1, with the

unit values for the tests varying from 1 through 20 units.

Revenues generated from this program will be placed in a

special account at each Campus from which the tests and

equipment needed to service the students in the program

will be provided. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval

for both Campuses, effective immediately.



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

carried without dissent.



6. Proposed Change in Room and Board Rates, UNLV



President Baepler recommended an increase in the room and

board rates at UNLV, effective Fall semester, 1975. He

noted that presently the students are offered 20 meals per

week at a combined room and board charge of $635 per semes-

ter. Effective with the Fall semester, it is proposed to

offer an option of a 12-meal per week plan, at a combined

room and board charge of $720 per semester, or a 19-meal

plan at a combined room and board charge of $754 per semes-

ter. Further details of the proposal were included in a

memorandum from President Baepler (identified as Ref. 6

and filed with permament minutes). Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval.



Two UNLV students spoke in opposition to the proposed

increase.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Ross,

carried without dissent.



7. Summer Session Salary Schedule, 1975, UNLV



President Baepler presented the following proposal from

the UNLV Senate, with his endorsement, for a Summer Session

salary schedule for UNLV for 1975:



Base Annual Salary Maximum Summary Salary

(per credit taught)



Over $16,000 $525

$14,500 - $15,999 $475

$13,500 - $14,499 $425

Under $13,500 $375



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong,

carried without dissent.



Upon motion by Miss Thompson, seconded by Mr. Ross, 4 additional

items were added to the agenda.

10. Augmentation of 1974-75 Work Program, NNCC



President Donnelly stated that it is anticipated that the

student fee income for 1974-75 for NNCC will exceed the

projected income by $6000, due to increased enrollment.

He requested approval to augment the 1974-75 Work Program

for NNCC by $6000 and to use the additional revenue to

purchase instructional supplies and equipment to serve

the increase in students.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred, noting that such augmenta-

tion also requires approval of the Department of Adminis-

tration and the Governor.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



11. NSU Land Foundation



President Baepler reviewed the history of the NSU Land Foun-

dation, noting that it was incorporated in 1967 as a non-

profit corporation with trustees to be appointed by the

Board of Regents. Its purpose is to acquire land in the

vicinity of the Campus and to sell the land to the Univer-

sity for cost plus accrued expenses connected with the land

acquisition (e. g., interest on bonds issued).



Dr. Baepler noted that since its inception, the Foundation

has sold to the University 116 acres of land at a cost of

$1,700,645 and presently owns approximately 40 acres of

land with a carrying value on its books of $1,391,000.



Present members of the Board of Trustees, which meets on

call by the President of the University or the President

of the Foundation, are:



E. Parry Thomas, President

Herbert Grier, Vice President

James Cashman, Assistant Secretary

Dr. Juanita White

Harold Jacobsen

J. Kell Housells

Jerome Mack

William Morris

James Bilbray

Deil O. Gustofson



Neil D. Humphrey, ex officio without vote

Donald Baepler, ex officio without vote

Herman Westfall, ex officio without vote (also serves

as Secretary-Treasurer)



Chairman Buchanan introduced Mr. E. Parry Thomas, Presi-

dent of the NSU Land Foundation, who then reviewed for

the Board the activities of the Foundation since its in-

ception. Mr. Thomas offered on behalf of the Foundation

the continued support of its members toward the development

of UNLV.



Mr. Ross moved that an ad hoc committee of the Board meet

with the Foundation trustees to discuss new appointments

to the Board of Trustees. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



12. Cooperative Agreement, NNCC and Public School Districts



President Donnelly requested authorization to enter into a

cooperative arrangement with the Elko County School Dis-

trict and the White Pine County School District whereby

high school seniors may take Community College classes at

Northern Nevada Community College. He requested that the

Board's policy on superior high school students as reflect-

ed in Section 5.1 of Chapter 10, Title 4, of the Board of

Regents Handbook be extended to provide that classes

would be offered by NNCC at the high school facilities with

instructors employed by the School District and the College

to insure that necessary qualifications are met. The regis-

tration and capital improvement fees would be waived inas-

much as the School District would be paying the instruc-

tional salaries. The student activity fee would also be

waived inasmuch as the students would still be high school

students.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval on a trial basis

for the 1975-76 academic year with a report and recommenda-

tion to be made after evaluation of that experience and with

the provision that registration for such students be handled

separately and not be recorded as part of the regular FTE

enrollment figures.



Miss Thompson moved approval of the President's recommenda-

tion as modified by the Chancellor with the further pro-

vision that a report be brought back to the Board at the

July, 1976 meeting. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, car-

ried without dissent.



13. Community Services Program, CCD



President Donnelly proposed the following changes in the

community services programs at the Community College Divi-

sion, effective July 1, 1975:



1. All community service courses and programs be budgeted

separately from the regular budget in each College.



2. Credit continue to be given for these courses and be

applicable only to an Associate in General Studies

degree.



3. Registration fees for each community service course

be variable and flexible to cover the cost of in-

structors' salaries, supplies and equipment needed,

and overhead costs. Fees shall be payable in full

at time of registration.



4. No capital improvement fees or student activity fees

be assessed for community service courses.



5. The programs be wholly supported from the registration

fees and not from State appropriated funds.



Further details of the proposal were contained in a memoran-

dum from President Donnelly (identified as Ref. 14 and filed

with permanent minutes). Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval, effective July 1, 1975.



Mr. Ross moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned for lunch and a meeting of the Investment

Advisory Committee and reconvened at 1:25 P.M.



14. Request to Write Off Student Fees as Uncollectible, CCD



President Donnelly requested authority to write off $14,342

at Clark County Community College and $20,583 at WNCC in

uncollectible receivables, noting that the reason for the

problem was that some students were placed on deferred-

payment plans and have not completed payments. Additional

details concerning the problem were stated in Ref. 15A,

filed with permanent minutes. Reports by the Director of

Internal Audit were also included with the agenda (identi-

fied as Ref. 15B and filed with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey noted that a list of students with

delinquent accounts at CCCC totalling $14,406.55 and a

second list of students with delinquent accounts at WNCC

totalling $20,583 were included with the Executive Session

agenda. He recommended that these accounts be written off

as uncollectible and holds placed on all records of the

students involved. He noted that this problem occurred

because Board policy was not followed by WNCC and CCCC

but stated that President Donnelly has taken necessary

action to correct administrative procedures.



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried without dissent.



15. Change in Requirement for Student Teachers, UNR



President Milam noted that in 1968 the Board of Regents

approved a recommendation by the College of Education

Selection and Retention Committee and the Dean that the

completion of a placement folder with the Placement Officer

of the University of Nevada be a required part of the stu-

dent teaching course. The fee for this service is $3.



President Milam stated that it has now been determined that

this provision could be contrary to HEW regulations issued

to implement the Buckley Amendment. Accordingly, the Col-

lege of Education Policy and Curriculum Committee has rec-

ommended that this requirement be abolished, effective

immediately. President Milam and Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried without dissent.



16. Special Investment Accounts, UNR



President Milam reported that there is presently a balance

of $54,476.50 in the Special Investment Account for the

College of Education building, and a balance of $474,791.79

in the Special Investment Account for the Physical Educa-

tion building. These funds have accrued from interest

earned from investment of the revenue bond proceeds. Ad-

ditional funds were to be placed in both accounts on April

14, 1975. Dr. Milam stated that all obligations incurred

in the construction of these two facilities have been met

and he requested that the accounts be closed and the bal-

ances be transmitted to First National Bank to be used in

the retirement of the revenue bonds. Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval.



Mr. Ross moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried without dissent.



17. Augmentation of 1974-75 Work Program, UNR



President Milam reported that it is anticipated that revenue

at UNR will be increased by $75,000 over that projected in

the work program. This increase in funds will be derived

from miscellaneous income, interest earned on investment of

surplus operating monies, and indirect costs recovered from

research and training grants. The funds will be expended

for payment of utilities for the Campus.



President Milam and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the

Department of Administration and Governor O'Callaghan be

requested to authorize augmentation of the UNR budget for

1974-75 by $75,000, as indicated above.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Mason, carried without dissent.



18. Revision of Estimative Budgets, UNR



President Milam requested approval of the following re-

visions of 1974-75 Estimative Budgets:



A. Stead Dining Commons - Increased revenue is derived

from increase in catering sales due to extensive pro-

grams of the National College of the State Judiciary

and the National Council of Juvenile Court Judges.

20. S-Bar-S Ranch



Vice President Pine reported that bids were opened April

17, 1975 for a 3-bedroom mobile home to be placed on the

S-Bar-S Ranch to provide housing for ranch personnel. Bids

were as follows:



Carson Mobile Home (did not meet specs) $16,353

Carson Mobile Home 26' x 64' 18,158

U. S. Mobile Home 24' x 64' 20,460



Vice President Pine recommended that the bid of Carson

Mobile Home for $18,158 be accepted with funds to be pro-

vided from the Helen Marye Thomas Trust account, subject

to approval by the Trust Officer of FNB. President Milam

and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

carried without dissent.



21. B-26 Aviation Sales, DRI



Acting President Smith recalled that in July, 1974 the Board

approved a $42,000 loan from the DRI Contingency Reserve to

the B-26 Aviation Sales Account to fund that operation un-

til the disposition of pending research grants was known.

He reported that all pending grant applications for the use

of the B-26 aircraft have been rejected. Accordingly, the

facility has been closed down, the B-26 has been placed in

storage and the hangar turned back to the City of Reno.

Dr. Smith recommended that the balance of $5630 in the B-26

Engine Replacement Reserve Account be transferred to the

B-26 Aviation Sales Operating Account to cover a deficit

in that account, and the $42,000 loan from the Contingency

Reserve be written off. Future expenditures for the B-26

consist of $35 per month tiedown fee and will be paid from

Institutional funds available to the Laboratory of Atmos-

pheric Physics. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



22. LAP 1974-75 Financial Status



Acting President Smith reported that the Laboratory of

Atmospheric Physics is presently $109,200 short of meeting

its FY 1975 salary commitments. He estimated that $64,000

of this amount can be recovered from grants and contracts

during the balance of the year, leaving an unfunded balance

of $45,200. In addition to this $45,200, operating needs

totaling $14,800 are estimated, for a total required by

LAP of $60,000 to finish FY 1975.



Dr. Smith requested authorization to fund this $60,000 by

(1) transfer of $10,000 from the Principal Investigator's

Fund (which will leave a zero balance); (2) transfer of

$20,000 from the Laboratory of Desert Biology; and (3)

transfer of $30,000 from the DRI Contingency Reserve. The

resulting status of DRI Contingency Reserve was included

with the agenda (identified as Ref. 23 and filed with

permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the transfers

requested by Dr. Smith and further recommended that: (1)

all previous Internal Audit recommendations (specifically

the report of February 19, 1975) concerning encumbrances of

salary and wage commitments against an actual current reve-

nue source, be effected by DRI July 1, 1975, and (2) that

no LAP personnel be continued into the 1975-76 FY for whom

funding is not available.



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried without dissent.



23. Report of Investment Advisory Committee



Dr. Lombardi presented the minutes of the Investment

Advisory Committee meeting of March 21, 1975. Acceptance

of the Committee's report was recommended.



Mrs. Fong moved acceptance of the report. Motion seconded

by Miss Thompson, carried without dissent.



24. Statistical Data on University Employees



Chancellor Humphrey noted the inclusion in the agenda (iden-

tified as Ref. 25 and filed with permanent minutes) of a

report requested by Miss Mason reflecting a statistical

breakdown of the number of women employees, men employees,

number of minorities, handicapped persons, positions in

which they are employed (i. e., administrative or teaching);

and whether they are employed on "hard" (i. e., State ap-

propriated) or "soft" money (i. e., grants or contracts).



Miss Mason stated that she had requested this report be

included on the agenda so that all of the Regents might

have a better understanding of the composition of the

faculty and staff at the University.



Dr. Patricia Geuder, speaking on behalf of the UNLV Women's

Caucus, charged that certain acts of discrimination had

occurred at UNLV in the promotion and salary advancement

of women members of the professional staff and offered

details of 4 cases which she stated demonstrated this

charge. She offered on behalf of the Women's Caucus to

discuss the details of the cases with the Regents in

Executive Session if it were considered desirable. (Dr.

Geuder's statement is on file in the Chancellor's Office.)



Mr. Fernando Romero, representing the Nevada Association

of Latin Americans, Inc., expressed concerns on behalf of

his organization over what he charged were violations by

the University of Federal guidelines for the employment of

women and minorities by organizations doing business with

Federal agencies. Mr. Romero stated that he had not deter-

mined the areas in which the violations had occurred, add-

ing that he had not seen the report which was under dis-

cussion by the Board.



Miss Eleanor Walker, representing the Las Vegas Chapter of

NAACP, also charged the University with violations of Fed-

eral guidelines, a determination she stated she had made

from visual inspection, and urged the Board to take im-

mediate and necessary action to implement an affirmative

action program. Miss Walker noted that she also had not

had an opportunity to see the report the Board was con-

sidering; however, in response to a question from the

Chancellor, she stated that she had not been refused a

copy of the report nor had she requested it.



25. UNS Articulation



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the March meeting

Miss Mason had requested that there be discussion con-

cerning complaints by students who state they are ex-

periencing difficulty in transferring credits earned at

Clark County Community College to a baccalaureate program

at UNLV. In response to that request, Dr. Humphrey re-

quested that President Donnelly review with the Board the

regulations governing such transfers and the procedures

followed by CCD personnel in advising students.



President Donnelly spoke of some of the issues involved

with articulation and noted that there is presently a

mechanism for dealing with these problems. He suggested

that when a student reaches a point where his problem can-

not be resolved by the Administration, the Articulation

Board is the appropriate mechanism for resolution.



Miss Patricia Miltenberger, Dean of Students for WNCC, Dr.

J. Stephen Nicholson, Executive Vice President for CCCC,

and Dr. William Berg, Executive Vice President for NNCC,

spoke concerning the efforts made at each of the 3 Com-

munity College Campuses to assist the student in his

transfer to the University of Nevada or to other institu-

tions.



26. Veterinary Medicine



Chairman Buchanan noted the introduction in the 1975 Legis-

lature of AB 390 which would appropriate $75,000 per year

for the 1975-77 biennium for the purpose of instituting an

advanced first year professional school in veterinary

medicine.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the procedure followed in the

Phase I and Phase II presentations for proposed new pro-

grams, recalling the confusion that existed prior to the

approval by the Board of this policy. He suggested that

there were two issues involved that the Board must deal

with:



(1) Whether the Board wishes to direct the establishment

of a one-year program in veterinary medicine; and



(2) Whether the Board wishes to maintain the integrity

of the planning for academic programs within the

University of Nevada System.



Chancellor Humphrey cautioned against any action by the

Board which would set aside or circumvent the planning

procedure which the Board had previously directed.



Dr. Humphrey also commented on the proposal now under con-

sideration by the WICHE Commissioners whereby Nevada could

contract with Colorado State University to reserve 5 places

each year for 20 years for Nevada students in its veterinary

science program.



He also commented on AB 389 which, if enacted, would allow

the WICHE Commissioners to contract for student places for

Nevada students in professional schools outside the WICHE

states. He added that it appeared that AB 389 has an ex-

cellent chance of being approved.



Dr. Beaulieu, UNR Faculty Senate Chairman, recalled that

a proposal for a one-year veterinary science program had

been submitted by the College of Agriculture in 1973. It

had not been approved by the Faculty Senate but had been

returned to the College with suggestions for changes and

assurance that it would be reconsidered by the Senate at

such time as the College wished to resubmit it. He stated

that the proposal had not been resubmitted by the College.



President Milam expressed agreement with the Chancellor

concerning the implications of abandoning the planning

procedure for new programs and urged the Board not to pre-

empt the faculty in the development of new programs.



Mr. Ross stated that he had been informed by members of

both Houses of the Legislature that they believed the Uni-

versity has taken a negative attitude on the bill and noted

that the University is being accused of killing the bill

because it is not the University's bill. Mr. Ross said he

agreed with the Chancellor's remarks but believed there

was a need to cooperate with the Legislature. He charged

that the WICHE concept had failed. He also pointed out

that all that would be needed for the program would be

the addition of a few courses and some personnel. He sug-

gested that the University let the Legislature know that

the Board agrees with the idea of a veterinary program, in

principle, and requested the Board to pass a resolution

endorsing the concept and agree to work with the Legisla-

ture during the next session for funding of such a program.



Mr. Ross moved that a resolution be adopted to indicate that

the Board of Regents endorses the concept of graduate pro-

gram in veterinary medicine.



President Milam suggested that some clarification of what

is proposed would be helpful, noting that the proposal

calls for a one-year extension program of Colorado State

University. It would not change the entrance requirements

that CSU would apply to Nevada students; i. e., 3.5 G. P. A.

or better. Also, he pointed out, there is no assurance

that CSU would accept the transfer of credits earned at

UNR. Students going from the one-year program at UNR to

the second year at another institution would actually be

transferring from CSU.



Mr. Ross' motion seconded by Mrs. Fong.



Dr. Beaulieu urged that there be a study of the need and

cost of a veterinary program. Dr. Lombardi agreed, stating

that in his opinion the Board needed more facts and more

planning.



Mr. Ross restated his motion that a resolution be adopted

whereby the Board agree in principle with the concept of a

veterinary medicine program, the type and need and size to

be studied within the next biennium and be presented to the

Legislature at the next session in a more precise way. Mo-

tion as restated seconded by Mrs. Fong.



Chancellor Humphrey commented on the Mac Millan bequest

which makes approximately $500,000 available provided the

University of Nevada establishes a veterinary medicine

school within 5 years of the date of Mrs. Mac Millan's

death. This offer expires in 1976. He stated that if the

University does not make claim to the money, it goes to

the University of California, Davis. Whether or not this

one-year program as proposed by AB 390 would qualify has

been studied by Counsel and he asked Mr. Hug to comment.



Mr. Hug stated that if the proposed program is designated

as a school, and if it fits in and is transferable as the

first year of a regular veterinary school, it would qualify

and would probably be accepted by the court. He pointed out

that it would, of course, be subject to contest by UCD if

they chose to do so and there would be some room for argu-

ment. However, he stated, in his opinion it could be sub-

stantiated before the court, provided it does qualify as

the first year of a veterinary school.



Chancellor Humphrey also reviewed the history of the law

school, noting that in 1973 the Board of Regents had re-

quested that feasibility studies be made of the need for

professional schools of veterinary medicine, dentistry,

law and a four-year medical school. With the cooperation

of the Governor this matter was discussed with legislative

leaders but no support was secured. The Legislature did,

however, adopt ACR 48 which stated that a law school was

needed, that it should be at UNLV, and directed the Board

of Regents to raise funds to pay the costs of a feasibility

study. This was accomplished, a feasibility study com-

pleted, approved by the Board and presented to the 1975

Legislature. Chancellor Humphrey noted that the law school

has not received support from this session of the Legisla-

ture.



Dr. Lombardi suggested that the appropriate course of action

for the Board would be to endorse AB 389 and then conduct

a feasibility study of the eventual establishment of a

veterinary medicine school to be discussed with the Legis-

lature during the next session.



Chancellor Humphrey suggested that the Board acknowledge

the support within the Legislature for the establishment

of a veterinary medicine school, pledge to go back to the

1977 Session with a full report concerning the feasibility

of such a program with a recommendation from the University

at that time.



Mr. Hug also suggested that the Legislature be requested

to make the proposed appropriation contingent upon a

determination of the feasibility of the school in order

to preserve the Mac Millan money.



Mr. Ross moved to amend his previous motion to provide

that the Board acknowledge the support of the Legislature

and agree that it would accept the funds proposed in AB

390 contingent upon approval by the Board of Regents of

the feasibility of establishment of such a school, with

the understanding that if the Board does not approve es-

tablishment of a veterinary school, the money would revert

to the General Fund. Motion to amend was not seconded.



President Baepler endorsed the earlier remarks of Presi-

dent Milam and Chancellor Humphrey and urged that the

Board retain its policy on the academic program planning

for the University.



At the Chancellor's request, Mr. Jessup commented on the

preliminary data he had gathered on the costs of a veter-

inary medicine program, noting that information received

from Colorado State University indicates that a one-year

program requires between $130,000 and $140,000 per year

in operating costs.



Mr. Ross moved to further amend his motion to specify

that the Board desires the appropriation be contingent

upon a normal feasibility study and Board of Regents ap-

proval. Motion to amend seconded by Mrs. Fong.



Dr. Lombardi moved to table further discussion. Motion

seconded by Mr. John Buchanan, carried with Mr. Ross

opposing.



The meeting adjourned at 5:00 P.M. and reconvened at 9:15 A.M.,

Saturday, April 19.



Members present: Mr. James L. Buchanan, II

(Saturday, 4/19) Mr. John Buchanan

Mrs. Lilly Fong

Louis E. Lombardi, M. D.

Miss Brenda Mason

Miss Helen Thompson (for part of the meeting)



Members absent: Fred M. Anderson, M. D.

Mrs. Molly Knudtsen

Mr. John Tom Ross



Officers and staff who were present the previous day were also

present on Saturday.



27. Membership Requirements of Fraternities and Sororities



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the March meeting

Mrs. Fong had requested a report on the membership re-

quirements of the fraternities and sororities presently

approved by the University and the procedures used for

handling membership termination. The Board had also re-

quested advice from Mr. Hug concerning the University's

obligation to participate in any litigation between a

fraternity or sorority and one of its members seeking to

discontinue membership.



President Baepler and President Milam discussed the mem-

bership requirements, both at the chapter and the national

level, for those organizations presently active on the two

Campuses.



Mr. Hug commented on his letter dated April 16, which was

distributed at the Board meeting, and his conclusion, as

stated in that letter, as follows:



It is therefore my opinion that Federal legislation

does not require University intervention into member-

ship practices of fraternities and sororities. There

is also no State legislation which requires such in-

tervention. Under current University rules and regu-

lations, fraternities and sororities are private or-

ganizations whose membership practices and procedures

for termination of membership in the organization are

up to the organization itself.



28. Approval of Fund Transfers



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

fund transfers:



#75-19 $10,581 from the Contingency Reserve to Computing

Center, Reno Operations, to augment operating

funds for the balance of the fiscal year. An

offsetting transfer has been made to the Contin-

gency Reserve from salary savings.



#75-20 $9000 from the Ending Fund Balance of University

of Nevada Press Sales Account to operating to

accommodate the production of the 3rd title in

the Basque Book Series.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong,

carried without dissent.



29. Amendments to Community College/University Articulation

Policy



Chancellor Humphrey introduced Dr. Owen A. Knorr, Director

of Program Planning, who serves as Chairman of the Articu-

lation Board. Dr. Knorr presented the following recommenda-

tions of the Articulation Board for amendments to the Ar-

ticulation Policy (Title 4, Chapter 20, Board of Regents

Handbook):



Section 2. Admissions



9. The Associate of Arts degree, consisting of University

parallel lower division courses, granted by the Com-

munity College Division, will be accepted for Junior

standing by the University Divisions of the University

of Nevada System. This in no way implies satisfaction

of University lower division requirements.



Section 3. Evaluation of Transfer Courses



2. All University parallel lower division courses will be

accepted for transfer. Non-University parallel courses

may be accepted at the discretion of the receiving Uni-

versity. Transfer credit is granted for University

parallel lower division courses completed with a grade

of "D" or better.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the proposed amendments

had been reviewed and endorsed by the Presidents and the

Division Senates. He recommended approval, effective

immediately.



Miss Mason moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong,

carried without dissent.



30. Proposed Revision of University Code



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the UNR Faculty Senate

had proposed an amendment to the University Code to add

to Section 5.3.25 the following paragraph:



(i) Lie detector tests shall not be used in conjunc-

tion with University of Nevada personnel proceed-

ings nor in relation to University of Nevada

personnel matters.



Dr. Humphrey noted that the Code provides that proposed

amendments shall be referred to all Senates for considera-

tion and recommendation. At least two months shall be al-

lowed for such consideration and the Board shall take final

action after giving due consideration to the opinions of

the Senate representatives and officers of the University.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that this proposed amend-

ment be referred to the Senates as required by the amend-

ment procedure for the Code and that action by the Board

be scheduled for the July 18, 1975 meeting of the Board.

Dr. Patrick Beaulieu, UNR Senate Chairman, distributed a

resolution which he reported had been passed by the UNR

Senate at the time the amendment had been proposed. Reso-

lution on file in the Chancellor's Office.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval of the Chancellor's recommenda-

tion. Motion seconded by Mr. Buchanan, carried without

dissent.



31. Proposed Revision of Refund Policy, UNR and UNLV



At the request of President Milam and President Baepler,

a recommendation for a proposed revision of the refund

policy was withdrawn from the agenda for further discussion

with ASUN and CSUN.



32. Proposed Revision of Deferred Payment Policy, UNR and UNLV



Chancellor Humphrey noted that Title 4, Chapter 13, Section

7 of the Board of Regents Handbook reflects the Board's

policy on deferred payments, as follows:



(1) Contracts for delayed payment of fees, tuition and

board and room are available to regular full-time

students at UNR and UNLV, allowing for two payments,

1/2 upon registration and the 2nd half by the Friday

of the 5th week of instruction, with a grace period

of 5 working days.



(2) Nonpayment of the 2nd installment shall result in

cancellation of registration.



President Baepler and President Milam jointly recommended

that the deferred payment plan apply only to total regis-

tration fees and tuition exceeding $200 per semester, in

accordance with the following schedule, with the 2nd and

final payment due by the end of the 5th week to coincide

with the end of the refund period.



Total Fee Deferred Payment



$201 - $ 250 $100

251 - 300 125

301 - 350 150

351 - 400 175

401 - 450 200

451 - 500 225

501 - 550 250

551 - 600 275

601 - 650 300

651 - 700 325

701 - 750 350

751 - 800 375

801 - 850 400

851 - 900 425

901 - 950 450

951 - 1000 475



The policy for delayed payment of board and room charges

would remain unchanged. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval, effective Fall semester, 1975.



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Mason,

carried without dissent.



33. Proposal for the Use of ACT-APP Admissions Procedure



Dr. Knorr presented a recommendation by the UNS Articulation

Board and the Admissions Officers for approval of the ACT-

APP as an additional method for applying for admission to

the University of Nevada System. He noted that the ACT-APP

(American College Testing Program Application) is an out-

come of nationally administered tests conducted by the

American College Testing Program. The proposal for the

use of this procedure was included with the agenda (identi-

fied as Ref. 34 and filed with permanent minutes). Presi-

dents Donnelly, Baepler and Milam and Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval, effective immediately.



Miss Mason moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong,

carried without dissent.



34. Proposed Change in Grants-in-Aid Regulations



Discussion of this item was deferred due to the absence

of Dr. Fred Anderson who had originally proposed the change.



35. Salary Schedule, 1975-77



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that proposed salary schedules

for UNR/UNLV and for CCD for 1975-77 were presented to the

March meeting to allow for consideration by the Administra-

tion and the Senates so that a special proposal could be

presented to the April meeting. As was noted in March, he

recalled, if the Legislature appropriates at the approxi-

mate level recommended by the Governor, there will be

enough money for an average increase in professional com-

pensation of 12.1% for 1975-76. 1% is required to fund

the increase in retirement premiums, leaving 11.1% to be

budgeted for salary increases.



Mr. Jessup explained the various proposals for salary ad-

justments as contained in the agenda, noting particularly

those recommendations of the UNR and UNLV Faculty Senates

and that of the CCD Senates. Under the proposal by UNR

and UNLV, 15% of the total money available for salary in-

creases would be allocated for merit increase; 42.5% of

the total available would be distributed through an across-

the-board percentage increase of 4.7%, and 42.5% of the

total available would be distributed through an across-the-

board dollar increase of $740 for "B" contract positions

in the Universities.



Under the proposal by CCD Senates, 27% of the total money

available for salary increases would be allocated for merit

increases, with the remainder of the total available money

distributed through an across-the-board dollar increase of

$1050 for "B" contract positions in CCD. Details of the

proposals are included in Ref. 36 (filed with permanent

minutes).



The Presidents and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

the salary schedule proposed by the UNR and UNLV Faculty

Senates (identified in Ref. 36 as Attachment D) be adopted

for UNR, UNLV and the Unit, and the salary schedule pro-

posed by the CCD Faculty Senates (identified in Ref. 36

as Attachment H) be adopted for CCD.



Supporting statements of the Chancellor's recommendation

were made by the respective Chairpersons of the UNR and

UNLV Senates. Miss Martinez, Chairperson of the Unit

Senate, expressed opposition on behalf of the Unit Senate

to the adoption of the salary schedule contained in the

Chancellor's recommendation and reported the Unit Senate's

support of the salary schedule as proposed at the March

meeting.



Miss Mason moved approval of the Chancellor's recommenda-

tion. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong, carried without dis-

sent.



Miss Thompson entered the meeting at 9:55 A.M., during the

preceding discussion.



36. Augmentation of UNLV Work Program for 1974-75



President Baepler reported that UNLV anticipates that it

will receive $87,000 as its share of the Federal Land

Grant money. Upon receipt of this money he stated, there

will be $83,000 in excess of budgeted revenue. He re-

quested authorization to augment the UNLV Work Program by

that amount, with the funds to be spent on the following

items:



1. Library books $10,000



2. Two 4-wheel drive vehicles for in-

struction, field trips in Geology,

Biology, Anthropology, Engineering 13,000



3. Hillside mower - safety regulations

require such a mower for use in hilly

areas 8,000



4. Fence - to enclose an area adjacent

to the Engineering building for ex-

periments on solar energy 3,000



5. Optics-microscope for use in Biology

in new Life Science building 20,000



6. Musical instruments for use in Music

education program 5,000



7. Scintillation counter for radioisotope

studies in Biochemistry 10,000



8. Portable public address system for use

at official University functions, in-

cluding athletic events 10,000



9. Etching press for reproduction of

etchings in instructional programs

of Art Department 4,000



Total $83,000



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, noting that

this augmentation requires the concurrence of the Depart-

ment of Administration and of the Governor.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Buchanan, carried without dissent.



37. Augmentation of Construction Budget, NNCC



President Donnelly reported that the unobligated funds re-

maining in the construction budget for Northern Nevada

Community College are inadequate to complete the proposed

landscaping this Spring. He requested that the Board

authorize the use of up to $15,000 of capital improvement

fee funds to supplement the project budget for landscap-

ing at NNCC. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval,

subject to verification of availability of funds.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong,

carried without dissent.



38. Legislative Program Report



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the status of pending legisla-

tion affecting the University.



Discussion resumed on Item 27, Veterinary Medicine.



Chairman Buchanan requested a recommendation from the Chan-

cellor. Chancellor Humphrey requested consideration of the

following resolution:



RESOLUTION NO. 75-1



WHEREAS, a significant number of Legislators have

indicated interest in improvement in the access af-

forded Nevadans to enter veterinary medicine; and



WHEREAS, the need to increase the number of large

animal veterinary medicine practitioners in rural

Nevada is believed to be the single most important

factor in the legislative interest; and



WHEREAS, a proposal for the establishment of a veteri-

nary medicine program has not been advanced through

established academic planning channels to the Board

of Regents in order that the Board might consider

such a proposal in an orderly way, with all the facts

presented and with all costs known and having the ad-

vantage of advice by the various faculties and the

Administration; and



WHEREAS, the Nevada Veterinary Medicine Association

has polled its members concerning the establishment

of a one year program of veterinary medicine at UNR

and that group voted 49 to 1 against such action; and



WHEREAS, WICHE has within the last month informed

Nevada of the probability that it will be possible to

contract with Colorado State University for 5 student

places per year for 20 years in that institution's

veterinary medicine school; and



WHEREAS, the enactment seems assured of enabling legis-

lation which will make it possible for Nevada WICHE

Commissioners to contract with professional schools

in any state; and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents wishes to do its best

within available resources to serve the needs of

Nevada for trained personnel and the needs of Nevadans

for access to educational programs;



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

Regents respectfully suggests that the Legislature

consider the establishment of a requirement that

WICHE students placed in veterinary medicine schools

contract with the State to devote the practice primar-

ily to large animals and to return to Nevada to prac-

tice and make their services available to the rural

areas for a specified period of time after their gradu-

ation, under penalty of complete repayment of the State

monies which will have been provided for their education

in veterinary medicine; and



That the Board of Regents urges the Nevada WICHE Com-

missioners to pursue completion of the contract with

Colorado State University and to exert every effort to

develop contracts with other states for placement of

veterinary medicine students who will agree to meet

the need for large animal practitioners in rural

Nevada; and



That the Board hereby instructs the University Adminis-

tration to offer every assistance to the WICHE Commis-

sioners, the Governor and the Legislature to bring this

program to fruition in order that these needs might be

met.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



39. Work Load Proposal



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the earlier discussion of the

Faculty Work Loan Proposal which had been initiated with

the adoption by the Board of Resolution No. 74-3. This

resolution referred draft regulations to the Faculty Sen-

ates and to the Administration for review and recommenda-

tion in order that adoption of a set of regulations might

be accomplished prior to the issuance of faculty contracts

for 1975-76. The Board agreed, at the March meeting, that

action would be scheduled at the April meeting.



Dr. Humphrey noted also that subsequent to the March meet-

ing, they had met with the Presidents of the instruction

divisions (or their designees), and Senate Chairpersons

to discuss Resolution No. 74-3 and possible alternatives.

Following that meeting, Dr. Humphrey stated, he had pre-

pared a revision to the earlier document in an attempt

to interpret possible areas of agreement. The proposed

revision was included with the agenda (identified as Ref.

33B and filed with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey also noted that an alternate document

had been proposed by President Milam and was included with

the agenda (identified as Ref. 33C and filed with permanent

minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey reported that President Donnelly, Pres-

ident Baepler and the UNLV Senate had endorsed the docu-

ment identified as Ref. 33B. The Unit Senate had declined

to take action since the documents affected only the in-

structional divisions.



Dr. Humphrey requested comments from the UNR and CCD

Senates.



Mr. Joseph Doser, Chairman of the WNCC Faculty Senate,

stated that the WNCC Senate endorsed the document identi-

fied as Ref. 33B, with some minor changes in wording in

Section 12, whereby the 5th line of that section would be

changed to read "The prospectus shall classify these

responsibilities as any one, all or any combination, of

the following: ...".



Dr. Beaulieu, Chairman of the UNR Faculty Senate, stated

that he had been directed to request the Board not to

adopt any regulations. If regulations are to be adopted,

he stated, the UNR Faculty Senate would wish to propose

a number of changes to the document recommended by the

Chancellor.



Chancellor Humphrey suggested that in view of the proposal

by UNR for changes, action on the proposal be deferred

until the May meeting to allow the UNR Faculty Senate to

forward its recommendations.



Miss Mason moved that the matter be postponed until May.

Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong, carried without dissent.



40. Chancellor's Report



Dr. Humphrey referred back to the presentation of the previ-

ous day of the report reflecting statistical data on Uni-

versity personnel. He noted that this report was prepared,

based on the best information now available within the

University System, and was presented in the form provided

in draft form by HEW. He commented that representations

were made the previous day that the University was in vio-

lation of affirmative action guidelines; however, he stated

that to the best of his knowledge and that of the other

officers, the University is making every effort to do the

correct thing and to comply with all regulations. He noted

that the statements made the previous day were general in

nature and noted that if there were specific charges made,

the University Administration would wish to have those

charges so that they could be dealt with.



President Baepler stated that he would bring back a report

to the Board at the next meeting concerning the statements

made by the UNLV Women's Caucus.



Mr. Hug pointed out that the frequent references to a

"quota" were misleading, stating that the Federal regula-

tions do not require that there be a quota of certain

categories hired; rather, it is required that hiring

practices be followed which insure that there is oppor-

tunity provided for the employment of women and minorities.



41. New Business



(1) Mr. John Buchanan requested a study be done as to

whether SAT can be used as an option to the admission

procedure which utilizes ACT.



(2) Miss Mason requested that a discussion be scheduled

at a subsequent meeting concerning the parking prob-

lems at UNLV.



(3) Miss Mason also requested a report of out-of-state

travel by faculty, the kind of travel authorized,

for whom, total cost to the University, and identifi-

cation of funds from which such travel is paid.



The regular action agenda was completed and the information

agenda submitted. The information agenda contained the follow-

ing items and is on file in the Chancellor's Office:



1. Report of Foreign Travel

2. Report of Disciplinary Cases

3. Report of Fund Transfers

4. Report of Purchases in Excess of $8000

5. Progress of University Projects

6. Board of Regents Special Projects Account



The meeting adjourned at 11:10 A.M.
