 1.  Vice President for Business, UNR



     President Crowley reported that Dr. C. Thomas Baxter, Jr.

     had declined the offer of the Vice Presidency and that he

     would wish, therefore, to consult further with the selection

     committee before bringing forward a recommendation to the

     Board at its June 27 meeting.



 2.  Appointment of Interim Dean, Orvis School of Nursing, UNR



     President Crowley recommended that Dr. Arlene Evans of the

     UNR faculty be appointed Interim Dean of the Orvis School of

     Nursing from July 1 to December 31, 1980, at which time Dr.

     Marion Schrum will report.  The interim appointment is to be

     on an A contract, based on Dr. Evans' current rank III, step

     15 salary, plus three steps as administrative increments,

     for a base annual salary of $34,039 (or a six-months salary

     of $17,020).  At the conclusion of her service as Interim

     Dean, Dr. Evans will be issued a new B contract for the

     remainder of the academic year at rank III, step 15.



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

     carried without dissent.



 3.  Allocation of Travel Funds for Code Revision Committee



     Chairman Cashell requested an allocation of $5,000 from the

     Board of Regents Special Projects Account to fund the nec-

     essary travel of the Code Revision Committee appointed at

     the May 9 Board meeting.



     Mr. Mc Bride moved approval.  Motion seconded by Dr.

     Lombardi, carried without dissent.



 4.  Study of System Administration



     Chairman Cashell recalled that at its May 9 meeting, the

     Board had approved his proposal that Cresap, Mc Cormick and

     Paget be retained to conduct a study of the Chancellor's

     Office and System Administration.  Mr. Cashell stated that

     he had concluded that a better approach to this would be the

     appointment of a committee consisting of Chancellor Baepler,

     Presidents Crowley, Eaton and Goodall, Regents Karamanos,

     Cashell and Mc Bride, with Judge Procter Hug as Chairman.

     He suggested that this committee be charged with examining

     the problem, that it have the option of using consultants,

     and that the objectives and scope of the study as outlined

     at the May 9 meeting be considered.



     Mr. Buchanan suggested that Dr. Brock Dixon, Vice President

     for Administration, UNLV, be added to the committee.  No

     exceptions were taken.



     Mr. Buchanan moved approval of the proposed committee.

     Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong, carried without dissent.



 5.  Proposed Sale of Adelaide Mine



     Vice Chancellor Lessly recalled that UNR is co-owner, with

     the Roxy Wingfield Estate, of some mining properties iden-

     tified as the Adelaide Mine, and for which an offer for an

     option to purchase has been received.  The offer is for the

     establishment of an escrow upon the payment of $2,750, per-

     mission for the buyer, M-B Mining Company, to go on to the

     property to do some development work for 30 days.  If the

     property proves to be productive, the purchase option would

     be exercised at a total purchase price of $27,500.  If it

     turns out not to be productive, UNR and the Wingfield Estate

     would each get $2,750 and the purchase agreement would be

     null and void.



     Mr. Mc Bride moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr.

     Buchanan, carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned at 9:05 A.M.
