pointed Dean of the College of Fine and Performing Arts

at UNLV, and his wife Pat Mc Collum. Dr. Mc Collum stated

that he appreciated the confidence and will be creative

to make the College the best it can be for UNLV and UNS.



3. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Dawson expressed his thanks to the 1990-91 stu-

dent representatives. He stated that they were all great

students to work with and wished them well in their endeav-

ors.



Chancellor Dawson updated the Board of Regents on the re-

apportionment legislation (A. C. R. 37). The bill has

passed the Assembly and the Senate has made some changes

to District 2A. The bill will be heard in the Senate

Committee on Government Affairs later this afternoon. Mr.

Tim Haller, consultant, was required to make some adjust-

ments to the computer system due to new population figures;

however, Chancellor Dawson stated that these adjustments

will not affect the proposed district lines. District 2A

(North Las Vegas) is a high minority district and has re-

quired an adjustment of moving 3500 people into District

2F in order to maximize the minority population. The first

election in 1992 will cause District 2F to hold a six year

term, and District 2G to hold a four year term.



Chancellor Dawson announced that Vice Chancellor Warren Fox

has accepted the position of Executive Director of Califor-

nia Postsecondary Education Commission and will be leaving

UNS at the end of July. He stated that Dr. Fox has been a

friend to UNS and wished him well. Dr. Fox will surely be

missed.



Dr. Fox stated that the decision to leave Nevada has been

the hardest decision he has ever made. He thanked the

Chancellor, members of the Board, Presidents, and staffs

for the working relationship he has encountered over the

years.



Upon questioning by Dr. Eardley, Vice Chancellor Fox ex-

plained the WICHE/Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)

program. NNCC requested to enroll in this program, there-

fore all the Community Colleges are now enrolled. The

Universities are hesitant in becoming a part of this

program. UNS is not attracting out-of-state students,

although it is sending Nevada students to other states.

Vice Chancellor Fox stated that information will be

gathered and a report will be made to the Board.



Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks gave a legislative update report-

ing on the closing actions of the Legislative Budget Commit-

tees.



The open meeting recessed at 10:05 A.M. to move into committee

meetings and reconvened at 11:35 A.M. with all Regents present

except Regents Berkley, Gallagher, Foley and Whitley.



4. Approved Emeritus, TMCC



Approved emeritus status for Ernestine Le Febvre as Radio-

logic Technology Instructor Emeritus. Ms. Le Febvre retired

June, 1987.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of emeritus status for Ernestine

Le Febvre at TMCC. Mr. Klaich seconded. Motion carried.



5. Approved Emeritus, CCSN



Approved emeritus status for Phyllis Nelson as Community

College Professor of English Emeritus. Ms. Nelson has

served CCSN from August, 1971 to her retirement on June

30, 1991.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of emeritus status for Phyllis

Nelson at CCSN. Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.



6. Approved Recommendation for Promotion, UNR



Approved the following recommendation for promotion:



A. University of Nevada, Reno - President Crowley recom-

mended the following promotion, effective July 1, 1991:



Robert H. Turner to Professor of Mechanical Engineering,

Engineering



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the recommendation for pro-

motion at UNR. Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.



Mr. Foley entered the meeting.



7. Approved Handbook Change, Appraisals of Real Property



Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 10, Section 2,

Payment of Commission to Third Parties, and Section 8.2b,

Approval, Announcement and Acknowledgment of Gifts and

Grants.



These changes would require UNS to obtain its own appraisal

of real property. The Business Officers of UNS recommend

approval.



Section 2. Payment of Commissions to Third Parties



The Board of Regents is the only entity within the Univer-

sity System that can retain the services or approve payment

of third parties where the University of Nevada System is

involved in real estate purchase, trade or lease. No one

else can obligate the Board of Regents in such matters

except by prior authorization by the Board of Regents. An

independent appraisal shall be obtained when an institution

liquidates real property.



Section 8. Approval, Announcement and Acknowledgment of

Gifts and Grants



2. A gift of real property to the University of Nevada

System or one of its member institutions can be ac-

cepted only under the following conditions (see also

Section 3, paragraph 5, Policies Regarding Gifts and

Additions to the Endowment):



a. The purpose of the gift shall not constitute an

exception to an approved University program,

policies and construction projects;



b. The recipient institution of the gift shall be

responsible for obtaining an independent appraised

evaluation of the real property gift when deemed

appropriate;



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook changes regarding

appraisals of real property. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion

carried.



8. Approved Handbook Change, Leave Records



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

15.3, Leave Records, as follows:



Section 15. Leave Records



3. Annual and sick leave of a day or more must be reported

to the appropriate Personnel Office.



This change is necessary in order for UNS professional

employees to clearly continue as overtime exempt employees

under the decision in the case of Abshire v. County of Kern,

908 F2d (9th Cir. 1990).



Mr. Klaich stated that DRI is having a problem with the

structure of this proposed policy and requested an explan-

ation of the policy and the reason for the change.



Assistant General Counsel Bob Ulrich explained the decision

in the case of Abshire v. County of Kern, 908 F2d (9th Cir.

1990).



During the discussion, the Regents expressed their concern

that this new provision, notwithstanding that it is required

by federal law, would lead to abuse of leave privileges by

employees. Mr. Ulrich explained that individual supervisors

and department heads could still require that the employees

who were gone for half a day or more report their absences

for purposes of monitoring. The provision simply does not

allow such reports to be transmitted to the appropriate

Personnel Office for deduction from an individual employee's

leave balance.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the Handbook changes regarding

leave records. Mrs. Berkley seconded.



DRI Vice President for Finance and Administration Dale

Schulke stated that DRI operates as a consulting firm in

which they charge the client for services rendered on the

project. If a researcher leaves work, then the client

cannot be charged for services. He requested that this

item be tabled in order to allow for changes in the pro-

posed language.



Chancellor Dawson explained that every dollar that is paid

on DRI's projects is charged to the grant or contract, and

leave is charged to a leave account at DRI, which is a

funded account.



Mr. Ulrich emphasized that an appeal of this decision was

denied by the United States Supreme Court. It is law

across the land which is in effect at this time, therefore,

the language in the Board of Regents' Handbook must reflect

this policy immediately.



Mr. Ulrich stated that he would work with DRI in devising

a policy that will work for them and also fall under the

guidelines of the law.



Motion carried.



9. Approved Handbook Change, Sick Leave



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

11.3, Sick Leave, as follows:



Section 11. Sick Leave



3. Where a physician certifies that such a professional

staff member is unable to resume duties after exhaust-

ing all accumulated sick and annual leave, the profes-

sional staff member may, with the approval of the

President and the Board of Regents, be granted extended

salaried sick leave for a period not to exceed an addi-

tional twelve calendar months plus one calendar month

for each full year of employment with the UNS. During

extended salaried sick leave, no annual or sick leave

shall be earned. If at the end of the extension period

a physician certifies that the professional staff member

is still unable to resume duties, the appointment shall

be terminated.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

sick leave. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



10. Approved Resolution, Bank Loan, TMCC



Approved the following Resolution for a Qualified Tax-Exempt

Obligation loan in the amount of $350,000. The funds will

be used for remodeling and to purchase equipment for an

additional 12,500 square feet of space at Old Town Mall.

This loan will be repaid from budgeted funds for off-site

Campus facility rentals. TMCC has budgeted for the expan-

sion of the Old Town Mall teaching site, which includes a

landlord assessment for remodeling costs of approximately

$250,000, plus interest, at a commercial rate. Instead of

the landlord lending for the remodeling project, the funds

may be obtained through a non-taxable short-term loan at a

lower interest rate, thus saving approximately $60,000 over

a five year period.



RESOLUTION #91-7



BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY

OF NEVADA THAT:



The Officers of the University are hereby authorized to

solicit proposals for a $350,000 bank loan for the pur-

pose of financing remodeling, improvements and equipment

purchases at the Old Town Mall facility for Truckee

Meadows Community College. The loan is hereby desig-

nated at a "Qualified Tax-Exempt Obligation" under

Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986,

as amended.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the resolution for a quali-

fied tax-exempt obligation loan in the amount of $350,000

for remodeling and purchasing equipment at TMCC's Old

Town Mall facilities. Dr. Derby seconded.



Dr. Eardley questioned how the banking institution will be

chosen, and Vice President Rita Gubanich explained that UNS

purchasing and bidding procedures will be followed. In

addition, Vice President Gubanich explained that TMCC has

obtained an excellent rate at $.35 per square foot. She

stated that when TMCC leaves the Old Town Mall facilities,

TMCC will leave the facilities as they are, including the

remodeling.



Mr. Foley questioned the length of the lease term and Vice

President Gubanich responded that the current lease term is

for six years with an option to continue. She stated that

all the lease documents are reviewed by General Counsel

prior to approval.



Regarding the repayment schedule, Vice President Gubanich

explained that a request has been made in the Biennial

Budget for rental funds. If the Legislature does not make

this allocation, then TMCC will withdraw the loan. Mrs.

Sparks questioned whether TMCC could wait until the budget

has been approved by the Legislature, and Vice President

Gubanich explained that this is a formal request inasmuch

as the process in obtaining a loan usually takes 3-4 months

to complete.



Mr. Foley requested General Counsel Klasic to review the

lease agreements to be sure the documents are favorable

for TMCC.



Dr. Eardley expressed his appreciation to TMCC for obtain-

ing such a savings for UNS.



Vice President Gubanich informed the Board that TMCC is now

at its maximum capacity for classroom space. She added that

the Business and Industry Liaison, which is located in Old

Town Mall, is an excellent program for the community. The

community and student response to the Old Town Mall facili-

ties has been very positive.



Motion carried.



Chairman Gallagher entered the meeting.



The open meeting recessed at 12:10 P.M. to moved into a closed

personnel session and then into committee meetings.



11. Personnel Session



Upon motion by Dr. Hammargren, seconded by Mrs. Sparks, the

Board moved to a closed personnel session for the purpose

of discussing the character, alleged misconduct, profes-

sional competence or physical or mental health of a person

in accordance with NRS 241.030.



The open meeting reconvened at 2:40 P.M. Wednesday, May 15,

1991 with all Regents present except Regents Derby, Hammargren

and Whitley.



12. Report and Recommendations of the Investment Committee



A report and recommendations of the Investment Committee

meeting, held May 15, 1991, was made by Regent Daniel J.

Klaich, Chairman.



(1) Upon recommendation of the Investment Advisory Staff,

approved the establishment of an account with the

following managers for the purpose of diversifying

the equity investment management of the UNS endowment

funds:



Manager Investment Philosophy



Hellman, Jordan Management Relative Growth

Boston, MA



Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo Co. Quasi-Market Index

Boston, MA Fund Relative Value



Delphi Management High Return on Equity

Boston, MA



Over the most recent market cycle, the current UNS

equity managers have not complimented each other with

a diversity of investment styles. It is anticipated

that by establishing accounts with these three invest-

ment managers it will correct this diversification

problem. The exact amount to be placed initially with

each manager will depend on market conditions at the

time the accounts are established.



The Investment Advisory Staff, with the advice of

Cambridge & Associates, agreed that the overall

strategy for the equity market today is to buy value

and quasi index funds while waiting to observe the

direction of growth stocks.



The members of the Investment Committee commended

Deputy Treasurer Janet Mac Donald and Endowment Di-

rector Edna Brigham for the job done. Chairman Klaich

stated that UNS is looking for growth-oriented managers

and felt that the proposed managers will perform ac-

cordingly.



Mrs. Mac Donald defined the investment terminology used

in the agenda material to the Committee and described

some of the qualifications managers must meet before

being considered to manage UNS funds.



(2) Upon the recommendation of the Investment Advisory

Staff, approved the closing of the Concord Capital

account. The Advisory Staff provided three reasons

to support their recommendation:



1) Concord Capital is at the beginning of an invest-

ment cycle, thereby minimizing the cost of closing

the account because of timing;



2) The portfolio now more resembles a value manager's

portfolio than the growth portfolio which the

Board of Regents sought when Concord Capital was

hired; and



3) Concord Capital's performance results have not

met the minimum requirements established by the

Board of Regents.



With $5 million in additions, the closing of the

account will provide the funds needed to establish

the accounts requested in the previous item for

diversifying equity investments.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Investment Committee. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion

carried.



Dr. Hammargren and Dr. Derby entered the meeting.



The open meeting recessed at 4:00 P.M. and reconvened at 8:10

A.M. Thursday, May 16, 1991 with all Regents present except

Regents Hammargren and Whitley.



13. Regents' Workshop



The Board met in workshop session in the Student Senate

Chambers, Jot Travis Student Union, University of Nevada,

Reno.



Teacher Education - Vice Chancellor Fox introduced Dr. Frank

Meyers, UNR Dean of the College of Education, and Dr. Dale

Andersen, UNLV Dean of the College of Education. Dr. Fox

made opening remarks regarding various publications on

teacher education and indicated that the two Deans had pre-

pared a handout regarding their respective Colleges, which

are filed in the Regents' Office. He stated that teacher

education is being strengthened by teaching standards, Uni-

versity curriculum, University entrance and exit exams,

and clinical teaching programs.



Dr. Meyers stated that he was pleased with the current

national reform of education. The current interest in edu-

cation will continue and the emphasis will continue to be

on teacher preparation. Many Colleges and Departments

within higher education institutes must be involved in

teacher education in order for a broad base approach to be

utilized and brought into the classrooms. Professional

development schools are now being established in Washoe

County (two elementary schools and one middle school).

These schools will provide extensive hands-on training for

student teachers.



Dr. Andersen stated that both UNR and UNLV Colleges of

Education would like to be associated with the Goodland

Group from Seattle and the University of Washington. This

group examines education from the elementary level to the

higher education level. He stated that collaboration is

not only within the institution, but with the county school

districts. UNLV offers field experiences, professional

development, curriculum building, research and development.



Dr. Andersen noted that Nevada is a unique state in the

field of education. Oregon has twice the number of edu-

cation graduates as is the need within the state for

teachers; Nevada is opposite and recruits nationally for

its teachers. UNS will not sacrifice quality for quantity

of teachers.



Upon questioning, Dr. Andersen stated that UNLV education

graduates are tracked and surveyed during the first, second

and fifth year after graduation. The surveys indicate a

high level of satisfaction with their College preparation.

The building principals also are surveyed and the evalua-

tions of former UNLV graduates has been high. The princi-

pals offer feedback and UNLV takes this very seriously.

Several graduates have been selected for the "Teacher of

the Year" award during the past several years.



Dr. Meyers stated that courses are needed to help teachers

understand their clientele; i. e., cultural differences,

mainstreaming the handicapped, disciplinary and emotional

problems. Therefore, education students need a background

in psychology and counseling. UNR emphasizes a well-

balanced curriculum for its education students.



It was indicated that the student/faculty ratio is 30:1,

but many instructors are part-time. The upper division

courses are hurting, and capping enrollment has been

suggested to aid these courses. Dr. Meyers indicated that

enrollment is up 115% since 1985 at UNR's College of Educa-

tion. The feedback from education graduates has shown in-

creased positive comments and that they feel they are

receiving better training than in previous years.



Mrs. Sparks questioned why UNS is enrolling poorly trained

students and Dr. Meyers resonded that the students that

are being educated as teachers are better trained and he

did not think UNS students are worse, but that UNS is ex-

pecting more from them. He noted that parents are a very

important component in educating their children. Dr.

Andersen stated that schools are a reflection of society

and that society is becoming more and more complex; i. e.,

the foreign students in our schools who do not speak

English. Our teachers are expected to teach these students

along with the other children.



Mr. Klaich questioned if the Colleges determine whether an

education student could not perform as a teacher after

graduation, and both Deans responded that they do screen

the students and counsel them into other professions.



Dr. Derby stated that the presentation had been excellent

and that she felt reassured about the education programs.

She questioned whether the Colleges provided exit exams

upon graduation. Dr. Meyers stated that students are

given an exam prior to student teaching along with exit

exams. The student teachers are also provided counseling

during their field experiences if deficiencies are real-

ized. He stated that continuing education is an important

aspect in maintaining teacher education. Dr. Andersen

stated that the National Teacher Exam is given, but it

does not provide a writing sample, which has become a

national concern.



Mrs. Sparks questioned the drug education programs, and

Dr. Meyers stated that school counselors provide this

service to the classroom along with other miscellaneous

programs which teachers do not handle.



The open meeting recessed at 9:30 A.M. to move into Foundation

meetings. The regular meeting reconvened at 10:40 A.M. Thursday,

May 16, 1991 with all Regents present except Regents Whitley and

Hammargren.



14. Report and Recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee on

Admission Standards



A report and recommendations of the ad hoc Committee on

Admission Standards meeting, held May 15, 1991, were made

by Regent Daniel J. Klaich.



(1) Information Only: Report on Admissions Policies in

the Western States - The Data Subcommittee of the

Regents' ad hoc Committee on Admission Standards has

completed a survey of admission standards of Univer-

sities in the WICHE states. Results of the survey

were presented to the Committee.



Mrs. Kim Harris, Research Analyst, explained the sur-

vey and the various admission categories which the

WICHE states implement. Vice Chancellor Warren Fox

stated that the best admission success rate is the

Washington (Washington Higher Educational Coordinating

Board) admission policy.



Mrs. Harris stated that retention information is un-

available and difficult to access. Mr. Foley stated

that retention information is important and UNS should

look at these profiles in order to address the issue

on retention.



(2) Information Only: Relevant Responses from the 1990

Statewide Survey of Nevada Graduating Seniors - Every

other year the University of Nevada System completes a

study entitled "Postsecondary Plans of Nevada High

School Seniors" that is based on a questionnaire ad-

ministered to all graduating seniors in the high

schools of Nevada. Selected questions about post-

secondary plans of these seniors were presented to

the Committee by Mrs. Karen Steinberg, Director of

Institutional Research, and are filed in the Regents'

Office.



(3) Information Only: Discussion of Future Activities -

The Committee requested that the next meeting be

scheduled when the University data is gathered by

the Data Subcommittee.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the ad hoc Committee on Admission Standards. Dr. Eardley

seconded. Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich left the meeting.



15. Report ofn 1990 High School Survey



Mrs. Karen Steinberg, Director of Institutional Research,

presented information from "Postsecondary Plans of Nevada

High School Seniors, 1990" filed in the Regents' Office.

This study, first conducted in 1986 by the Chancellor's

Office, is the third in a series of biennial surveys of

the entire population of Nevada high school seniors. The

survey is designed to provide secondary and postsecondary

educational planners with information about Nevada high

school seniors and their postsecondary plans. Survey

findings, including demographic characteristics of 1990

seniors, their high school experiences, their plans for

the year following graduation, the factors important in

their choice of a postsecondary institution, and their

impressions of UNS Campuses, were discussed. Highlights

of the survey are as follows:



Next Year Plans



More seniors plan to attend school during the year

following high school graduation than in 1986, while

fewer plan to get a job.



More seniors of all income levels, grade point average

and race/ethnicity intend to enroll in school the

year following high school graduation.



Postsecondary Educational Plans



85% of survey respondents intend to pursue postsecondary

education sometime in the future. Of these students,

66% intend to pursue a degree, an increase of 8% over

the 1986 results.



More seniors of all income levels, grade point average

and race/ethnicity intend to pursue a College degree.



College Choice Factors



The most important factor in a student's selection of

an institution is the availability of a particular

program, followed by academic reputation of the insti-

tution.



Institution of Choice



67% of students planning to continue their education

prefer to attend a public institution.



60% of responding seniors prefer to attend a 4-year

institution, while 40% prefer a 2-year institution.



69% of students planning to continue their education

plan to do so in Nevada, a rise of 6% since the 1986

survey results.

academic record, he was able to be an outstanding

student leader. He was President of Sigma Nu Frater-

nity, ASUN Business Senator and ASUN Executive Vice

President.

Mendive announced the following NNCC outstanding student:



Katie Killip passed her GED at NNCC in 1988, at the age

further her education. She is still working on her

after the Spring, 1992 semester, and on May 3 of this

year she was honored with the Academic Superiority

tract for the Center. This contract puts 13 mentally

retarded people in the public workplace. A pre-school

for mentally retarded children will also be opened at

the Center in June thanks to Katie's becoming certi-

fied as Director through her education at NNCC. Katie

and her husband also oversee a group home where several

mentally retarded residents live, mostly on their own.

Student Body Senator of 1990-91, Jayne has taken an

active part in such activities as Alcohol Awareness

Week and giving a speech before the Legislative Sub-

committee on Higher Education. She has just been

elected the new Student Body President and plans to

have more activities next year which would require

more student involvement. Through her dedication and

concern for others, she has proven she is a true leader.



Truckee Meadows Community College - ASTM President Roy

Potter announced the following TMCC outstanding student:



Dena Baldridge has been a student at TMCC for two years

and is pursuing a degree in Counseling for the Handi-

capped with a minor in Special Education. Her perse-

verance in spite of her disabilities, as well as her

medical problems is commendable. She has Cerebral

Palsy which confines her to a wheelchair most of the

time. Yet she never allows her disability to get her

down, nor has she used it as an excuse to keep from

doing anything. She has been a great asset to the

Student Government Office this last year. Though only

a student-at-large she has far exceeded our expecta-

tions of this position. She does not wait to be told

what to do, she sees a need and fills it. She is also

well liked by both students and staff for her friendli-

ness and warm smile which she readily shares with all

who come in contact with her.



26. Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee



A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Commit-

tee meeting, held May 15, 1991, was made by Regent Joseph

(1) Approved the BA in Environmental Studies at UNLV. Ref.

AA-1 is filed in the Regents' Office.



This inter-disciplinary program will provide graduates

with entry level skills in a variety of fields in in-

dustry, government and business. It will involve col-

laborative efforts of a number of Departments and will

be administered through the Office of the Provost.



In addition to offering the BA degree, the Environ-

mental Studies Program will develop a nondegree pro-

gram leading to certification in environmental resto-

ration/waste management by the State of Nevada Division

of Environmental Protection. Community College of

Southern Nevada graduates will have an opportunity to

transfer into the program upon completion of an As-

sociate in Environmental Restoration/Waste Management,

which is under consideration by CCSN.



A proposal for partial funding of the program is being

made to the DOE. It is anticipated that UNLV will

assume total funding responsibility by 1994, with con-

tinued grant funds available for program enhancement.

Estimated expenses, including 6.5 FTE faculty, are

$390,000. It is anticipated that 300 majors will be

enrolled in the program by the 4th year.



Mr. Klaich stated that UNS has been criticized for

participating in research projects with the Federal

Government regarding nuclear waste, and he questioned

whether this program will be regarded in the same

critical manner. Dr. John Unrue, UNLV Senior Vice

President and Provost, responded that the Director of

this program, Dr. James Deacon, has worked to obtain

funding for this program from various sources includ-

ing the Department of Energy. The DOE funds projects

other than nuclear waste projects. Dr. Unrue assured

the Committee that this program will be closely ob-

served.



(2) Approved a separate condensed format for revisions in

existing academic programs or administrative units

which are submitted to the Board of Regents for

consideration. Ref. AA-2 is filed in the Regents'

Office.



The format which is currently in the Board of Regents'

Handbook (Title 4, Ch. 14, Sec. 4, No. 5) will con-

tinue to be used for all new program proposals.



Mr. Klaich requested that an executive summary be

included with each proposal.



Chairman Foley suggested that this new format not be

too streamlined and Dr. Fox stated that he was cog-

nizant of that fact and will use this new format a

few times and then make changes as necessary.



(3) Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 16,

Section 8, Grades and Examination, CCSN, as contained

in Ref. AA-3 which is filed in the Regents' Office.

The faculty have recommended the addition of plus and

minus grades to better meet the needs of the students,
