The meeting was called to order by Chairman Buchanan at 9:35 A.M.



Upon motion by Mrs. Fong, seconded by Miss Mason, the supple-

mental agenda was accepted.



1. Approval of Minutes



The minutes of the regular session of April 18-19, 1975 were

submitted for approval.



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

carried without dissent.



2. Report of Gifts and Grants



Acceptance of the gifts and grants as reported by the Divi-

sion Presidents was recommended (report identified as Ref.

2 and filed with permanent minutes).



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Mason,

carried without dissent.



3. Phase I Proposal for School of Veterinary Medicine, UNR



President Milam noted the inclusion with the agenda of a

Phase I proposal for the establishment of a one year pro-

gram in veterinary medicine at UNR for 10 students per year.

(Proposal on file in Chancellor's Office.) He pointed out

that students would transfer from UNR's one year program to

Colorado State University and other veterinary schools if

they could secure admission.



Dr. Milam reported that the UNR Faculty Senate had reviewed

the proposal and had recommended approval. He requested

Dean Bohmont to comment on the proposal as submitted by the

College of Agriculture.



Following Dean Bohmont's presentation, President Milam rec-

ommended approval of the Phase I proposal as submitted.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred, noting that approval of the

Phase I proposal would authorize the College to proceed

with the development of a detailed Phase II proposal. Chan-

cellor Humphrey also recommended that Counsel be requested

to proceed with the necessary legal action to secure a rul-

ing, prior to consideration of Phase II, as to whether or

not the Court will distribute the approximtely $446,000

from the Mac Millan bequest to UNR if such a program is

approved. He commented on a letter from Counsel for the

University of California, the contingent beneficiary of the

Mac Millan estate (letter idenitfied as Ref. 3B and filed

with permanent minutes).



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



4. Gund Ranch



President Milam recalled that in 1973 Mr. George Gund gave

to the University of Nevada a 2812 acre ranch in Lander and

Eureka Counties. The gift deed contained no use restric-

tions; however, it was separately agreed by the Board of

Regents at that time that the University would limit use of

the property to agriculture uses in connection with the

agricultural studies conducted by the Max C. Fleischmann

College of Agriculture at its Reno Campus. It was stipu-

lated by the donor that if the University should find it

necessary to sell or exchange the property, the proceeds

from the sale would be used to acquire "or the property

acquired in exchange will be" one or more properties in

Elko County similarly devoted to use in connection with

such agricultural studies and programs.



Dr. Milam noted the inclusion with the agenda of a resolu-

tion adopted by the Board of County Commissioners, Elko

County, which urged that Gund Ranch be leased or sold and

the Knoll Creek Experimental Station livestock operation

be reactivated, and that the Ranch Search Committee expedite

its efforts to locate and acquire an experimental ranch

(resolution identified as Ref. 6 and filed with permanent

minutes).



Dr. Milam also noted the inclusion with the supplemental

agenda of a report of action by the College of Agriculture

Citizens Advisory Board recommending that the feasibility

of phasing out the Reese River Experiment Station and

transferring its projects to Gund Ranch be studied, as

well as a recommendation that Knoll Creek Experimental

Station be closed down and its projects transferred, and

further recommended that the Gund Ranch be run on a tempo-

rary basis with any money spent there invested in such a

way as to enhance its resale value (report of action by

the Citizens Advisory Board identified as Ref. 6A and filed

with permanent minutes).



Dr. Milam noted the presence of Mr. Eyer Boies, Chairman

of the Elko County Commissioners, and further noted that

Regent Knudtsen had requested an opportunity to speak to

the resolution received from the Elko County Commissioners.



Mrs. Knudtsen made the following statement which Chairman

Buchanan instructed be recorded in the minutes:



I want to thank Chancellor Humphrey for placing this

item on the agenda and giving me an opportunity to

speak to the Resolution of the Elko County Commissioners

as it pertains to Knoll Creek, the Gund Ranch and re-

lated projects of the College of Agriculture. But

first I would like to give my qualifications to address

myself to these matters.



I have been actively engaged, and am still actively

engaged in ranching in Central Nevada. My operation

is typical of most Nevada ranches in that it includes

the raising of livestock and the growing of hay. Hay

and livestock are traditionally the major agricultural

products of Nevada. My ranching operation includes

deeded land and Federal grazing land under the supervi-

sion of the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest

Service. Over the years I have been the featured

speaker at Field Days held at Knoll Creek, at the

Reese River Experiment Station and at the Gund Ranch.

I have served, and still serve on the Citizens Ad-

visory Board for the College of Agriculture. Although

I am not a member I have participated in meetings of the

Ranch and Search Committee and the Committee to advise

on the operation of the Gund Ranch. These are only

some of the many contacts and associations which I

have had and still have with the College of Agriculture.

I give them today only to explain that I am not un-

acquainted with the matters I proposed to discuss.



It seems appropriate at this time to give some back-

ground on the role Colleges of Agriculture play in the

lives of farmers and ranchers. It is no exaggeration

to say that America's position as the world's producer

of food is due to the leadership given to agriculture

by our Land Grant Colleges. Land Grant Colleges, work-

ing through their Colleges of Agriculture and their

Experiment Stations, have brought about the agricul-

tural revolution which gives American the ability to

feed its expanding population and to have reserves for

export as well. Men and women engaged in agriculture

depend on the research findings and innovative theories

and practices of their State Colleges of Agriculture

whether they are raising garlic or potatoes or cows or

alfalfa or ornamental plants. More than any other

industry I can think of, agriculture is dependent on

the climate and soil conditions of its individual

areas of operation. This is why regional experiment

stations are of prime importance to agricultural pro-

ducers. County Agents in Clark County are confronted

with problems to solve vastly different from those en-

countered by their colleagues in Elko County.



Traditionally Nevada has not been an agriculturally

oriented state. However, with the population increase

consuming ever greater acreage of prime agricultural

land, the marginal and submarginal farm lands of Nevada

are being used increasingly. As population continues

to expand, Nevada will play an ever greater role in

food production for America and the rest of the world.



New agriculture is moving into Nevada from states where

prime agricultural lands are disappearing. When these

newcomers get here the first place they contact is the

College of Agriculture. They ask:



How do we raise alfalfa in the High Valleys?

What kind of fertilizer?

What about salinity?

What variety of crop should we plant and when

should we plant it?

What sort of insects and weeds need to be guarded

against?

Should we plan to calf our cows in Spring or Fall?

What breeds of cattle are best adapted to the en-

vironment?



It is possible to answer these questions and a host

of others from some ivory tower tucked away in the Max

C. Fleischmann College of Agriculture building on the

Reno Campus, but the chances are that such advice,

while strong on theory, will prove economically dis-

astrous in practice. This is why such value is placed

by ranchers and farmers on the existing research facil-

ities at Knoll Creek, Reese River, Grass Valley and at

the other exprimental stations throughout our State.



For the benefit of those Board members who may not be

familiar with the properties we are talking about:



Knoll Creek is situated in Elko County in the northern

part of the State near the town of Contact. It con-

sists of one acre of land where buildings and corrals

are situated. The remaining property is leased from

the Salmon River Cattle Company.



The Gund Ranch is located in Eureka and Lander Counties

and lies in the northern portion of Grass Valley. It

comprises several thousand acres of deeded land and

grazes cattle on the Federal Range operated by the

Bureau of Land Management. It has a carrying capacity

of 600 or 700 head of cattle and cuts over 1000 tons

of hay, mostly alfalfa.



The Reese River Experiment Station is located in Lander

County near Austin. It is a 40 acre parcel of land

irrigated by well water and is a typical high valley

operation.



Mr. George Gund gave the Gund Ranch in Grass Valley to

the University two years ago to be used as a research

facility, with the stipulation that if the ranch were

sold the monies realized must be used to purchase a

similar type operation in Elko County. The value of

the gift was appraised at $350,000. It was put out

to bid. In the meantime the cattle market had suffer-

ed a reverse, ranch property was depressed and the

country was in the throes of an economic recession.

No bid was received equal to the full value of the gift

and we could not sell the property under its appraised

value without jeopardizing Mr. Gund's position with

regard to the gift.



In the meantime, and for several years prior to Mr.

Gund's gift, a committee known as the Ranch Search

Committee had been actively seeking a Northern Nevada

ranch for the College of Agriculture to be used as a

research facility, primarily in the area of animal

husbandry but also in related fields of hay raising

and range utilization. Certain criteria had been set

by the committee to define the type of ranch they were

seeking. Primary among these conditions were location

on a paved highway, proximity to good schools and rural

electricity. The Gund Ranch met none of these require-

ments. But the Gund Ranch had one outstanding advan-

tage held by none of the other ranches under consider-

ation. It was free. It also was a really typical

Nevada ranch. Many of us thought it offered an excel-

lent opportunity for the College of Agriculture person-

nel to try its hand at running a ranch - the kind of

ranch known as a "rawhide outfit" with no frills, no

fancy buildings, a no-nonsense working ranch of the

type so many Nevadans do operate. This would be done

on a temporary basis with the understanding that when

opportunity arose it would be sold.



At a meeting last Fall, held at the Gund Ranch, after

careful consideration, a consensus was reached by

members of the Gund Ranch Committee. Art Glaser,

Hillary Barnes, Ned Eyre and quite a few others were

present as members. I attended as an interested

spectator. Eyer Boies was not with us.



At the annual meeting of the Citizens Advisory Board

held in Reno March 22nd, the thinking of the Gund

Ranch Committee was expressed in the following resolu-

tions:



9. In the interest of a more efficient and eco-

nomical operation in Northeastern and Central

Nevada, and to make a more consolidated con-

tribution toward solving various problems of

livestock raising, high valley agriculture,

and range utilization; BE IT RESOLVED: That

the possibility of phasing out the Reese River

Experiment Station and the feasibility of trans-

ferring present projects to the Gund Ranch, be

studied.



Carried.



10. In the interest of a more efficient and eco-

nomical operation in Northeastern and Central

Nevada, and to make a more consolidated con-

tribution toward solving various problems of

livestock raising, high valley agriculture,

and range utilization; BE IT RESOLVED: That

Knoll Creek be closed down as soon as practical

and that all projects currently being conducted

there be transferred to another facility.



Carried.



11. In the interest of a more efficient and eco-

nomical operation in Northeastern and Central

Nevada, and to make a more consolidated con-

tribution toward solving various problems of

livestock raising, high valley agriculture,

and range utilization; BE IT RESOLVED: That

the Gund Ranch be run on a temporary basis

but consistent with its role as an Experiment

Station. Any money spent on the Gund Ranch

should be invested in such a way as to enhance

the resale value of the property.



Carried.



These Resolutions were approved by a majority of the

Citizens Advisory Board.



Two days later, on March 24th, the Elko Board of Com-

missioners passed their Resolution which was forwarded

to Chancellor Humphrey who in turn forwarded it to the

members of the Board of Regents. Eyer Boies is Chair-

man of the Elko County Board of Commissioners. As I

understand it, his main objection to the College of

Agriculture's Citizen Advisory Board Resolutions was

with the proposed phasing out of the Knoll Creek Ex-

periment Station.



In the meantime another voice was raised in opposition

to the Resolutions of the Citizens Advisory Board and

the voice belonged to Mr. Telford Work.



Mr. Work is a Los Angeles newspaper publisher and a

good friend to the College of Agriculture. In 1965 he

gave the 40 acres on which the Reese River Experiment

Station is situated to the University for the use of

the College of Agriculture. At the time of the gift

it was understood that if at any time there was no

need for this facility it could be disposed of. This

station, like the others, has an advisory board composed

of local citizens. This advisory board objected to any

economy move which would deprive them of the Reese River

Station even though the same kind of projects could be

carried out at the Gund Ranch. Even more than the ad-

visory board Mr. Work did not want this to hapen. As

a newspaper man, he writes extremely well, and he voiced

his sentiments in a letter reprinted in all the Central

Nevada area newspapers.



It really is a compliment to the work currently being

done by the College of Agriculture at Knoll Creek and

in Reese River that such value is placed upon it as to

render the thought of transferring either station to

a different location is viewed with disfavor. The

main reason for proposing such a move was for consoli-

dation and economy. However the Citizens Advisory

Board advocated study and careful consideration before

making any such moves.



It would seem to me that any action at this time would

be a mistake. The friendship and support of people like

Eyer Boies and Telford Work is much too valuable to be

risked by any move of which they are not in favor.

These things have a way of working themselves out.



What I really wanted to do at this time was to explain

how all these conflicting resolutions came about and

to place them in their proper perspective.



Dr. Anderson entered the meeting at 10:00 A.M., during the above

statement by Mrs. Knudtsen.



Following the conclusion of Mrs. Knudtsen's statement, Mr.

Boies spoke briefly in support of the resolution from the

Board of County Commissioners, suggested again that the

Gund Ranch either be leased or sold.



Dean Bohmont noted that the College of Agriculture is

guided by and values the advice it receives from the

Citizens Advisory Committee which has recommended that

the Gund Ranch be utilized on a temporary basis. He re-

quested that no action be taken at this time to change the

status of any of the 3 operations (i. e., Knoll Creek,

Reese River, or the Gund Ranch), noting that the College

is still working to develop a solution.



Dr. Anderson moved that the 3 operations continue to be

operated as at the present until suitable replacements are

avilable. Motion seconed by Dr. Lombardi, carried without

dissent.



Mr. Ross entered the meeting at 10:30 A.M.



5. 1975-76 Work Program and Estimative Budgets



Chancellor Humphrey noted the inclusion with the agenda of

a document containing the recommended Work Program and Es-

timative Budgets for 1975-76. As noted in the narrative

accompanying the Work Program, $47,202,943 was allocated

to general University operation and $10,636,601 was includ-

ed in the Estimative Budgets and the DRI Financial Plan.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the Work Pro-

gram and Estimative Budgets with the exception of the

budgets for Intercollegiate Athletics for UNR and UNLV.

He noted that the officers recommend that credits be es-

tablished for the budgets and existing personnel in Inter-

collegiate Athletics be issued contracts but that detailed

presentations by sports be submitted to the July meeting.



President Milam requested an adjustment to the UNR portion

of the Work Program to consolidate out-of-state travel

(now distributed among the various Colleges and Units)

into only two areas -- the School of Medical Sciences and

the President's Office.



Chancellor Humphrey also reviewed the history of the pres-

ent method of distribution of indirect cost recovery monies

at UNR (i. e., 87 1/2% to general University operation,

6 1/4% to a separate research development fund), noting

that this percentage allocation was approved in 1973 as a

temporary measure. He recommended, upon the request of

President Milam, that the percentage allocation be changed

back to the previous formula of 75% to general University

operation, 12 1/2% to the Department conducting the re-

search and 12 1/2% to a separate research development fund.



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

tion concerning allocation of indirect cost recovery monies.

Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without dissent.



Dr. Anderson moved approval of the Work Program and Esti-

mative Budgets as submitted, amended to reflect the lump

sum allocation of out-of-state travel monies as requested

by Dr. Milam. Motion seconded by Mr. Ross, carried without

dissent.



Dr. Anderson moved that commendation be sent to the Gover-

nor and the Legislature in appreciation for their support

of higher education. Motion seconded by Mr. Ross, carried

without dissent.



The meeting adjourned for lunch and a meeting of the Investment

Advisory Committee and reconvened at 1:40 P.M.



6. Request for Interfund Loan to Computing Center



Mr. Niels Anderson, Director of the Computing Center, re-

viewed the present capability of the Computing Center, not-

ing that they presently have an option to purchase the CDC

6400 Central Computer now being leased, including 65K of

central memory, a console and two model 6681 Data Channel

Converters for $398,000, if the option is exercised by

June 30, 1975. He also noted that the Central Data Corpo-

ration has stated that the option will not be renewed. Mr.

Anderson stated that the possibility of a lease-purchase

through an intermediary company has been explored and the

cost over a 5-year period would be approximately $100,000

over the direct purchase price. He requested approval of

the lease-purchase and its payment over a 2-year period

with the use of an interfund loan from the Board of Regents

Special Projects Account of $177,628, and identified the

following additional funding:



Computing Center resources available:



6-30-75 and 7-1-75 Sales Fund $120,000

1975-76 budget for lease of computer 100,000

$220,372



Interfund Loan (from Board of Regents

Special Projects) 177,628

$398,000



Repayment of Interfund Loan



1976-77 budget for lease of computer $130,372

1977-78 budget (saved from computer lease) 47,256

$177,628



Mr. Anderson noted that it is presently projected that the

CDC 6400, with 80 ports, would be serviceable at least

through FY 1981. The cost of leasing the present computer

(now with 30 ports and adding 10 ports each year) would

be $1,037,332 for the 6 fiscal years, 1976-81. Purchase

would result in a savings of $639,332 over the 6-year

period. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the

exercise of the option and of the interfund loan.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



7. Request for Interfund Loans, UNR



President Milam recalled that in July, 1974 the Board ap-

proved interfund loans from UNR's Unemployment Compensa-

tion Pool of $10,000 to Central Office Services and $10,000

to Audio Visual's Photographic Sales Accounts, with loans

to be repaid by May 30 and June 30, respectively. Dr. Milam

requested approval of the following interfund loans from UNR

Parking Permits Account to permit repayment to the Unemploy-

ment Compensation Pool Account:



$7,500 to Audio Visual Photo Sales to be used to

finance inventory and to be repaid in 3 years.



$10,000 to Central Office Services Sales to be used

to finance inventory and to be repaid in 2 years.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



8. Air Conditioning, Home Economics Building, UNR



President Milam recalled that the 1973 Legislature approved

Campus improvement projects for UNR totaling $660,000. All

projects have been completed, or are under contract, with

the exception of the air conditioning of the Home Economics

building. Plans and specifications for that project have

been completed and the State Public Works Board is ready

to advertise and estimates the cost of the project at

$180,000. Dr. Milam noted that there is approximately

$110,500 available from the 1973 appropriation, requiring

at least $69,500 from other funds before the project can

be bid. He requested that the Board pledge $69,500 from

the UNR Capital Improvement Fee Fund for this purpose,

noting that there is presently an uncommitteed balance

(after deduction of 1/4 of the annual bond payment which

must remain in the pledged revenue account) of $111,412

which may be used for this purpose upon approval of the

Board.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that $69,500 from the UNR

Capital Improvement Fee Fund be pledged to this project,

supplementing the available $110,500 remaining in the 1973

appropriation, and the State Public Works Board be request-

ed to proceed with the project.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



9. Revision of Residence Hall Policy, UNR



President Milam submitted a proposal for UNR housing desig-

nated to increase the attractiveness of University housing

to prospective residents (report identified as Ref. 7 and

filed with permanent minutes). Contained in the proposal

was a recommendation that effective Fall, 1975 residence

hall living be voluntary. Presently, University policy

requires that all Freshmen and Sophomore students under 21

years of age and not living at home live in University ap-

proved housing.



President Milam requested approval of the Board of the

proposal to change from mandatory residence in approved

housing and further requested the Board to underwrite a one

year experiment to the extent of pledging up to $50,000

from the UNR Capital Improvement Fee Fund if the experi-

ment should prove to be financially unsuccessful. Chan-

cellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



Chairman Buchanan requested that there be an investigation

concerning the legality of permitting the use of vacant

dormitory space by minimum security inmates who would be

interested in attending College.



President Milam was requested to submit a report in the

Fall on the status of the residence halls.



Mrs. Fong spoke concerning a report she had received from

former ASUN President Tom Mayer, dated May 27, assessing

the status of the dorm repairs. Mrs. Fong requested that

the report be filed with the permanent minutes.

14. The Role of the Desert Research Institute



Chancellor Humphrey noted that at the time of Dr. Lloyd

Smith's appointment as Acting President of DRI, he had asked

Dr. Smith to prepare a position paper concerning the Insti-

tute, specifically to explore whether or not DRI should

continue as a separate Division of the System. Dr. Smith's

paper was included with the agenda (identified as Ref. 12

and filed with permanent minutes).



Dr. Smith commented briefly on the position paper he had

submitted, stating that he believed the DRI should be

maintained as a not-for-profit institution but it should

work closely with the Universities to make use of the many

talents available within each of the Divisions.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that he believed the paper sub-

mitted by Dr. Smith was very important; however, he also

noted that it was not without controversy and that it had

been referred to the other Divisions for review and further

discussion would be scheduled for the November meeting.



15. Policy Statement, DRI



President Smith noted that Counsel has ruled that it is

legal for the University to enter into contracts on behalf

of the DRI which provide for confidentiality as to the re-

sults of the research. Counsel has further suggested that

it would also be desirable to have a policy statement

adopted by the Board of Regents. Accordingly, President

Smith and Chancellor Humphrey recommended the following

be added as a new section in Title 4, Chapter 17, of the

Board of Regents Handbook:



The Legislative Act authorizing the creation of the

Desert Research Institute states that one of the

purposes to be achieved is the conducting of applied

research for industry, governmental or private agencies

or individuals. The objective is twofold: First, to

be of assistance to private and government agencies;

and secondly, to produce additional revenue to further

the purposes of the Desert Research Institute. The

Desert Research Institute is authorized and encouraged

to develop private research contracts. Where the needs

of the contractor require that the results of the re-

search be held confidential, a clause preserving such

confidentiality may form a part of the contract and

the preservation of such confidentiality in prior or

future contracts is expressly ratified and approved by

the Board. All contracts for applied research with

private industry shall, as a minimum, provide suffi-

cient revenue to cover the cost to the University.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



16. Proposed Change of Laboratory and Center Names



President Smith presented recommendations that the name of

the Western Studies Center be changed to Social Sciences

Center, and the name of the Desert Biology Laboratory be

changed to the Ecology and Bio-Energetics Center. An ex-

planation in support of the proposed change was included

with the agenda (identified as Ref. 14 and filed with

permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey noted that this item had been referred

to the UNR and UNLV Divisions for review and action would

be scheduled at the July meeting.



17. DRI Bylaws



President Smith noted that the DRI Bylaws, as approved by

the Board of Regents in February, 1975, provide in Section

2.4 that "Written notification of resignation will be given

at least one month before the resignation is to take ef-

fect. Faculty members are free to resign at any time with

one month's notice without forfeiture of accumulated annual

leave or other privileges to which they would otherwise be

entitled." Dr. Smith also recalled that in March, 1975 the

Board approved an amendment to the Annual Leave Policy which

provides that "In any case, staff members whose contracts

are contingent on available funds shall be free to resign

at any time with two months' written notice without for-

feiture of accumulated annual leave or other privileges to

which they would otherwise be entitled."



The DRI Faculty Senate requested, and Dr. Smith concurred,

that an amendment to the DRI Bylaws be approved so that

the requirement in Section 2.4 on resignations will conform

to the two months specified in the Annual Leave Policy.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective upon

publication of the revised Bylaws by the President's Office.



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen,

carried without dissent.



18. Part-Time Faculty Salary Schedule, CCD



President Donnelly presented the following proposed salary

schedule for part-time faculty in the Community College

Division, noting that the semester-credit-hour schedule

is identical to the present schedule for CCD except for

the addition of more steps. The hourly basis schedule is

requested for those staff who are teaching in Federally

funded programs or those funded through vocational funds

distributed by the State Department of Education, which

are funded with instruction based on hours spent in the

classroom.

19. Lateral Progression CCD Salary Schedule



President Donnelly recalled that at the April meeting, a

salary schedule for CCD faculty was adopted to be effec-

tive July 1, 1975. He proposed the following provisions

for the lateral progression of CCD faculty on this schedule.

above, an individual is eligible for con-

sideration for the next schedule, regardless

5. Lateral movement on the schedule does not mean

movement at the same step, but does mean an in-

crease in salary.



President Donnelly reported that the CCCC and NNCC Faculty

Senates had taken action endorsing the above provisions.

He noted also the inclusion with the agenda of changes

proposed by the WNCC Faculty Senate.



Mr. Joe Doser, Chairman of the WNCC Faculty Senate, com-

mented on that Senate's proposal, requesting the following

changes to the proposed provisions:



a. Elimination of all degree requirements from Paragraph

A throughout the proposal as it relates to movement

to Schedules II, III and IV.



b. Modify Paragraph C throughout to read, "after a mini-

mum of four years on Schedule (I, II or III) an in-

structor will be considered for lateral progression."



c. Elimination of the phrase "Upon completion of degree

required in 'A' above," from Paragraph E throughout.



d. Elimination of the sentence "Lateral movement does

not mean movement at the same step but does mean an

increase in salary." at the bottom of the proposal.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the proposal

as submitted by President Donnelly and endorsed by the

CCCC and NNCC Faculty Senates.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried with Mr. Ross opposing.



20. Definition of Academic Year



President Donnelly requested that the definition of aca-

demic year for CCD be changed to specify that the academic

year shall be defined as the period from the middle of

August, as determined by each Community College calendar,

through May 31.



In the discussion following, it was determined that a

uniform policy statement concerning the definition of aca-

demic year should be developed effective for all 3 instruc-

tional Divisions.



Mrs. Fong moved that action be tabled until the following

morning. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without

dissent.



21. Deferred Payment Policy, CCD



President Donnelly recommended the following policy govern-

ing contracts for delayed payment of fees for CCD students,

effective Fall semester, 1975:



1. Contracts for delayed payment of registration fees and

tuition are available to regular full-time students (i.

e., those registered for 7 credits or more) at CCD,

allowing for 2 payments, 1/2 upon registration and the

2nd 1/2 by Friday of the 5th week of instruction with

a grace period of 5 working days.



2. Nonpayment of the 2nd installment shall result in can-

cellation of registration.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective Fall

semester, 1975.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



22. NNCC Landscaping



President Donnelly noted that $23,000 is presently avail-

able in capital improvement funds for landscaping at NNCC.

He also noted that several years ago Mr. George Gund gave

$12,000 to NNCC without restriction and Dr. Donnelly re-

quested that this $12,000 be added to the landscaping budg-

et in order that the project could be as nearly complete as

possible. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



23. WNCC Space at Stead



President Donnelly noted that WNCC presently leases space

at Stead Campus, which is operated by UNR, at the actual

cost of providing all services. During 1974-75 WNCC has

occupied 7 buildings with a total of 68,495 sq. ft. of

space, for which they have been billed $119,865.75 (ap-

proximately $1.75 per sq. ft. per year). UNR has agreed

to credit $49,976.55 of this amount for remodeling done by

WNCC, leaving $69,889.20 due. President Donnelly stated

that $10,000 in WNCC funds and $4,889.20 in CCD funds

are available and requested approval of the expenditure

of $55,000 from WNCC capital improvement fee funds for

this purpose. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



President Donnelly also spoke concerning negotiations which

are now underway for the possible acquisition of Billing-

hurst Junior High School on a lease basis as an alternative

to Stead. Further information will be reported as it be-

comes available.



Mrs. Fong moved approval of the recommendation for the pay-

ment for leased space at Stead. Motion seconded by Miss

Mason, carried without dissent.



24. WNCC, Phase II



President Donnelly reported that bids had been opened May

13, 1975 by the State Public Works Board for the construc-

tion of Western Nevada Community College, Phase II, plus

all shared site work for this project and the DRI project,

Phase I.



Mr. Wood, System Architect, reviewed the results of the

bids (identified as Ref. 22 and filed with permanent min-

utes) and reported that the State Public Works Board had

approved the award of a negotiated contract to Corrao

Construction Company for the construction of Building and

Site Work in an amount not to exceed $2,170,221, subject

to State Public Works Board analysis of credit amounts

for proposed changes to reduce the contract, and a con-

tract to Sierra Pacific Power Company for the construc-

tion of utilities in the amount of $129,944.



President Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recommended the

Board concur in the proposed action by the State Public

Works Board.



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

carried without dissent.



25. Proposed Traffic and Parking Regulations, CCCC



President Donnelly presented, with his endorsement, proposed

traffic and parking regulations for Clark County Community

College Campus. Proposed regulations identified as Ref. 23

and filed with permanent minutes. Chancellor Humphrey rec-

ommended approval, effective immediately.



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

carried without dissent.



26. Proposed Right of Way Grant



President Donnelly reported that Sierra Pacific Power Com-

pany has requested a 10-foot wide easement on the North

Reno Site for the purpose of constructing an overhead

power line and has requested a gas main easement, 20 feet

wide, for the purpose of providing service to the WNCC

Campus. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, noting

that the grant documents have been reviewed and approved

by Counsel.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



27. Approval of Fund Transfers, CCD



President Donnelly recommended approval of the following

fund transfers from Clark County Community College Con-

tingency Reserve:



$40,000 to Library operating for purchase of audio visual

equipment, security I. D. system, art collection,

microfilm readers, furnishings and periodical

microfilming.



$ 5,000 to General Expense operating for postage to year

end.



$45,000 to Occupational Instruction operating for class-

room supplies and instructional equipment.



$40,000 to University Parallel Instruction for classified

salaries to prepare accreditation self study and

$ 3,500 to Professional Grants-in-Aid for staff and family

registration grants-in-aid.



$ 6,000 to Student Services classified salaries for addi-

tional registration assistance.



$ 3,700 to Developmental Instruction operating for class-

room supplies and instructional materials.



$60,000 to Buildings and Grounds operating for increased

utility costs, security, supplies, contract main-

tenance, grounds equipment, bulletin boards and

miscellaneous maintenance shop furnishings.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

carried without dissent.



28. Nevada Insurance Education Foundation Chair, UNLV



President Baepler reported that the Nevada Insurance Edu-

cation Foundation has requested that consideration be given

to the establishment of a Chair at UNLV and has made a

recommendation for a designee to the Chair. He noted that

this Foundation was organized in 1969, through joint efforts

of the University of Nevada and the Nevada Independent In-

surance Agents. Its primary objective was to assist in

furthering insurance studies on the College level, as well

as for continuing education for those engaged in the busi-

ness of insurance in the State of Nevada. A Chair was

established at UNR in 1970, and in 1973, a professional

position in insurance was established at UNLV to which the

Foundation contributes approximately 50% of the salary.

President Baepler and Chancellor Humphrey recommended ap-

proval of the establishment of the Nevada Insurance Edu-

cation Chair at UNLV.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Mason,

carried without dissent.



29. Response to Discrimination Charges, UNLV



President Baepler recalled that at the April meeting, the

UNLV Women's Caucus charged that certain acts of discrimina-

tion had occurred at UNLV in promotion and salary advance-

ment of women members of the professional staff and offer-

ed details of 4 cases which their spokesperson stated

proved the charge. As agreed, President Baepler submitted

a report concerning the statements made on behalf of the

Women's Caucus (report identified as Ref. 27 and filed with

permanent minutes). Dr. Baepler noted that he had invited

the UNLV Women's Caucus to send a representative to this

meeting at University expense but that they had declined

to do so.



Dr. Baepler commented further on the charges and his

response, stating that whenever inequities are identified

efforts are made to adjust them. These efforts would be

continued, he stated, and spoke briefly of the proposed

visits by Vice President Gentile to other schools for

review of their Nursing staffs and programs in an effort

to provide some criteria against which to make evaluations

concerning the UNLV Nursing Department. In response to

comments by Mrs. Fong that she had received complaints

from the southern Nevada medical profession that the UNLV

Nursing graduates were inadequately trained, President

Baepler stated that he had not received any such complaints

but would wish to be informed of any such concerns on the

part of the physicians or hospital staffs.



30. Proposed Reorganization of Student Personnel Services, UNLV



President Baepler proposed a reorganization of the Student

Personnel Services whereby that unit and the University

College would be merged into one administrative unit, to

be called Educational Services, to be directed by a Vice

President. Details of the organization were included in

a memorandum from President Baepler included with the

agenda (identified as Ref. 28 and filed with permanent

minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the Code provides that this

type of administrative reorganization shall be approved

only after consideration by the unit and the Division

concerned, according to the Division Bylaws. Consultation

with staff or the Student Personnel Services and the Uni-

versity College has occurred, as indicated in President

Baepler's memorandum, and Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval, effective July 1, 1975.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Mason,

carried without dissent.



31. Salary Schedule, Part-Time Faculty



President Baepler recommended that per-credit salary paid

to part-time faculty at UNLV be increased from $250 per

credit to $300 per credit, effective Fall semester, 1975.

He also proposed tha the $25 per credit extra pay for

teaching at Nellis Air Force Base be continued.



President Milam requested that this increase in the per-

credit salary also be extended to part-time faculty at

UNR, and proposed that the mileage differential paid to

UNR faculty also continue.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective Fall

semester, 1975.



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



32. Proposed Fee Schedule for Continuing Education Courses



President Baepler and President Milam recommended that the

per-credit-hour charge for courses offered through each

Division's Continuing Education Program be increased from

$19 to $23 per credit. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval, effective immediately.



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

carried without dissent.



33. Performing Arts Center, UNLV



President Baepler recalled that several years ago the Board

officially designated the second phase of the Performing

Arts Center as the Artemus W. Ham Music Hall. However, he

noted, even before the building is open, it is being re-

ferred to as the concert hall and he requested that the

Board officially change the name to the "Artemus W. Ham

Concert Hall". Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mrs. Ross moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen,

carried without dissent.



34. Approval of Fund Transfers, UNLV



President Baepler requested approval of the following trans-

fers from the Contingency Reserve:



#75-180 $200 to Philosophy to provide additional operating

funds for balance of fiscal year.



#75-182 $2000 to Library to provide additional operating

funds for balance of fiscal year.



#75-167 $2200 to Women's Athletics to provide additional

operating funds for remainder of fiscal year.



#75-169 $2000 to Intercollegiate Athletics to provide

additional operating funds for remainder of

fiscal year.



#75-170 $1500 to Theatre Arts to provide additional funds

in wages for part-time help through end of fiscal

year.



#75-175 $622 to Biological Sciences to provide additional

wages money to pay replacement for terminated

graduate assistant.



#75-177 $1355 to Admissions to provide additional wages

money for student help.



From Ending Balance, Estimative Budget Accounts



#75-173 $15,000 to operating in Tonopah Hall and Dining

Commons Account to provide additional operating

funds for remainder of fiscal year.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



35. Tennis Court Lighting, UNLV



President Baepler recalled that in October, 1974 the Board

approved the lighting of the tennis courts at UNLV at an

estimated cost of $41,000, with the funds to come from the

Physical Education Complex Project Contingency Fund. It

now appears that there will be little, if any, monies avail-

able in the Contingency Fund. It is also now estimated, he

stated, that the lighting of the tennis courts will cost

approximately $90,000 due to a change in design by upgrading

the quality of the lighting. This change in design was rec-

ommended by the Public Works Board and endorsed by the UNLV

Physical Plant Department.



President Baepler recommended that the $90,000 required for

the tennis court lighting project be made available from the

interest earned on the investment of the proceeds of the

Physical Education Complex revenue bond issue. That account

he noted will have earnings estimated at $464,780 by the

end of the project. Chancellor Humphrey recommended ap-

proval.



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

carried without dissent.



36. Revision of Estimative Budgets, UNLV



President Baepler recommended approval of the following

revisions to 1974-75 Estimative Budgets. In each case,

he noted, there is more revenue than was anticipated.

37. Report of Status of Parking, UNLV



In response to a request from Regent Mason at the April

meeting, President Baepler discussed the parking situation

at UNLV, and presented a map detailing the present parking

areas and those planned for the future.



38. Report of UNLV Senate Concerning Tenure



President Baepler noted inclusion with the agenda of a

report from Senate Chairman Mc Cullough concerning tenure

(report identified as Ref. 31 and filed with permanent

minutes). Dr. Mc Cullough spoke briefly concerning the

report and the following recommendations of the Univer-

sity Senate contained therein:



1. Incoming faculty without prior 4-year College or Uni-

versity teaching experience should be critically re-

viewed after 3 years service with the University.

Their performance should be evaluated under the pres-

ent Code as if the Department were granting tenure.

Merit increases, or promotions, could be used as re-

wards to those permitted to stay while those not

meeting "tenure requirements" be subject to dismissal.



2. The present tenure policy should be continued.



3. There should not be any quota system on the number

tenured.



4. The Committee recommends fixed-term contracts not be

used to replace the existing tenure system.



5. Only those faculty members holding rank in an academic

unit as defined by the AAUP should be eligible for

tenure.



Additionally, Dr. Mc Cullough stated, the Senate endorsed

the announcement by President Baepler for the appointment

of an ad hoc committee to study alternatives to tenure for

non-teaching faculty who do not hold rank in an academic

unit. President Baepler reported that he supported the

Senate's recommendations and had appointed a committee to

study the possibility of creating an alternative method

of job security for those persons affected by the proposed

change.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that since amendment of either

Division Bylaws or the UNS Code would be required to effect

the changes proposed by the Senate, the Senate's report had

been referred to all Senates and to the Administration for

consideration.



The meeting adjourned at 5:15 P.M. and reconvened on Saturday

morning, May 31, at 9:05 A.M. All Regents, Officers and staff

who were present on Friday were again in attendance.



The Chair ordered Agenda Item 19, Definition of Academic Year,

removed from the table.



President Milam submitted the following proposed statement,

noting the concurrence of Presidents Baepler and Donnelly:



For contractual and other appropriate purposes, the

academic year shall be established annually in con-

formity with the academic calendar published in the

catalog of the respective Campus, as approved by the

Division President.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Miss Mason moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson,

carried without dissent.



39. Phase II, Anderson Health Science Building



Regent Anderson noted that the second phase of the Anderson

Health Science building was included in the Capital Improve-

ment Program request for 1975-69 but was not funded by the

Legislature. Subsequent to its inclusion, a grant of

$950,000 was received from HEW, and $350,000 from Fleisch-

mann Foundation. The Fleischmann Foundation grant carried

the condition that matching funds must be secured before

its grant would be available. Howard Hughes then agreed

that two yearly increments from the Hughes grant could be

used for matching the Fleischmann Foundation grant, thus

securing the funding for the building. Dr. Anderson

pointed out that using the Hughes money for this purpose

removes these funds from operating accounts and he recom-

mended that the Administration analyze the resources re-

maining in the UNR Capital Improvement Fee fund to see if

funds could be made available to the Medical School to

release part of the Hughes money back to operating and

that a report be brought back to the Board in July. Dr.

Anderson then requested that the foregoing be considered

as a motion. Motion seconded by Miss Mason, carried with-

out dissent.



40. Proposed Change in Grant-in-Aid Regulations



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in December, Regent

Anderson had requested that consideration be given to a

change in regulations which would provide for a partial

grant-in-aid, presumably 1/2, for faculty who are on at

least 1/2 time contract, but less than full-time. This

request was referred to the 4 Division Presidents.



Chancellor Humphrey reported the following responses from

the Division:



(a) The UNLV Senate and President Baepler recommended that

grants-in-aid be reserved for full-time faculty.



(b) President Donnelly recommended that the present regu-

lations not be changed to include less than full-time

faculty.



(c) The Unit Senate recommended that faculty members who

are on 1/2 time or more but less than full-time be

eligible for grants-in-aid proportionate to the FTE

amount of their contract. This would apply only to

faculty members and not to dependents.



(d) The DRI faculty and President Smith endorsed Regent

Anderson's recommendation.



(e) The UNR Faculty Senate and President Milam concurred

in Regent Anderson's recommendation.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the grants-in-aid

benefit not be extended to part-time faculty at this time;

provided, however, that any full-time faculty member whose

contract is reduced to less than 1.00 FTE for financial

exigency reasons (such as LAP) shall continue to be eli-

gible for full grant-in-aid privileges.



In the discussion following, it was determined that addi-

tional information concerning the financial impact and

the number of potential faculty needed to be identified

prior to any action on this matter.



Chancellor Humphrey agreed, pointing out that these are

direct costs to the University but do not count as com-

pensation. He requested that the matter be further de-

ferred to permit an analysis of the costs involved.



Mrs. Fong moved to table until cost factors have been

determined. Motion to table seconded by Mr. Ross, carried

without dissent.



41. Legislation Concerning Smoking in Public Places



Chancellor Humphrey noted that Mrs. Fong had requested a

discussion concerning the University's plans for enforce-

ment of Chapter 326, 1975 Laws of Nevada (AB 17), which

becomes effective July 1, 1975. In response to that re-

quest Counsel Hug had been asked to provide some advice on

behalf of the Attorney General.



Mr. Hug stated that in his review of the law he found that

some phrases are ambiguous and in anticipation that other

agencies will be requesting an interpretation in prepara-

tion of the need to enforce this law, he had consulted with

the Attorney General's Office and would prefer to wait un-

til they are ready for a coordinated response so that ad-

vice to all agencies will be uniform.



42. Report of Out-of-State Travel



In response to a request from Regent Mason in April, Chan-

cellor Humphrey noted the inclusion with the agenda of a

report of out-of-state travel by faculty, the kind of

travel authorized, for whom, total cost to the University

and identification of funds from which such travel is paid.



Chancellor Humphrey commented on the report and suggested

that other types of budgeting for out-of-state travel

need to be developed.



Dr. Anderson left the meeting.



43. Proposed Deadline for Return of Employment Contracts



Chancellor Humphrey noted that Miss Thompson had requested

that a policy statement be developed whereby a certain time

would be established within which employment contracts must

be returned to remain valid.



In response to this request, Chancellor Humphrey recommended

that the Senates and the Administration review this problem

and recommendations be made by November 1, 1975.



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

carried without dissent.



44. Use of SAT and ACT Tests for Admission



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in April Regent John

Buchanan had requested a review by the instructional Divi-

sions as to whether or not SAT scores might be accepted

as well as ACT scores. President Baepler responded that

students are encouraged to take the ACT if they have not

taken either test, but if the student has already taken

the SAT it will be accepted.



President Donnelly reported that neither SAT nor ACT is

used for admission to CCD Campuses since admission is

open; however, the ACT Career Planning Profile is used for

many occupational programs.



President Milam reported that UNR presently requires the

ACT for Freshman admission and he proposed that it con-

tinue. An explanation of the requirement and rationale

for continuing it was included in a memorandum from Jack

Shirley, Director of Admissions (identified as Ref. 42

and filed with permanent minutes).



Mr. John Buchanan spoke of his experience with both the ACT

and SAT tests and suggested that further study into the

matter was justified.



Mr. Buchanan moved that this be referred back for further

review and asked that the Chancellor make a recommendation

concerning the possible substitution of SAT scores for ACT

when the applicant had already taken such test, and publi-

cation in the appropriate catalogs of such substitution.

Motion seconded by Miss Mason, carried without disent.



45. Proposed Amendment to UNS Code



President Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

the Code be amended to provide that CCD full-time faculty

are eligible for tenure. A proposed amendment was included

with the agenda (identified as Ref. 43 and filed with

permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that this proposal be re-

ferred to the Senates (in conformity with Section 1.2.3

of the Code) and be scheduled for action at the October

meeting of the Board.



Mr. Doser, WNCC Faculty Senate Chairman, made the following

statement in reference to the proposed Code amendment:



As the official representative for the faculty of the

Community College Division, I am here to present the

faculty viewpoint with regard to this agenda item.



The faculties do not concur with this item and ac-

cordingly do not wish to be considered under the

tenure provisions of the Code applicable to UNR and

UNLV faculties.



It is desired by the faculties that an alternate

proposal be developed. The Community College Divi-

sion Faculty Senates could submit an alternate pro-

posal for the September Regents' meeting. It is

realized that this delays action, due to the Summer

vacation period, but it is hereby requested that this

delay be authorized.



Due to the notice of this item arriving after the May

Faculty Senate meeting, the faculties have not had an

opportunity to develop a complete and adequate alter-

native proposal of fair dismissal. However, the

faculty cannot concur with this item as proposed be-

cause it does not include the following provisions:

a reasonable probationary period; adequate notice; an

impartial hearing officer; definitions of good cause;

and impartial review.



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that this Code amendment

was proposed in response to legislation enacted in the

1975 Legislative Session and the amendment was proposed

in conformity with the requirement of the Code concerning

such amendments. He suggested that if the CCD Faculty

Senates wished to propose a different amendment, it was

appropriate that they do so and submit it for considera-

tion in conformity with the Code.



President Donnelly asked that it be noted for the record

that the assertions made in Mr. Doser's statement that the

proposed amendment did not contain provisions for a reason-

able probationary period, adequate notice, etc., were total-

ly inaccurate, and pointed out that the Code presently pro-

vides for all of these items and that the proposed amend-

ment would have the effect of including CCD faculty under

those provisions. He further noted that the UNS Code fol-

lows AAUP guidelines in these matters.



It was agreed that the CCD Senates would submit their

recommendations and this matter would be returned to the

Board for action at the November meeting.



46. Laboratory and Special Course Fees



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in December, 1974 the

Board reviewed all laboratory and special course fees

assessed by the 3 instructional Divisions, and directed

that all then existing special course fees and laboratory

fees at UNLV, UNR and CCD be continued for the balance of

the 1974-75 fiscal year, that authorization be discontinued

effective June 30, 1975, and that recommendations for any

special course fee or laboratory fee to be assessed after

July 1, 1975, be submitted for action by the Board at the

May, 1975 meeting.



Accordingly, the following recommendations were submitted

by the Division Presidents:

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the above fees,

effective July 1, 1975, noting that these fees are in all

cases in addition to the per-credit-hour registration fee.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Ross,

carried without dissent.



47. Selection of Architects and Engineers for UNS Capital

Improvement Projects



A. Chancellor Humphrey stated that in order to proceed

with capital improvement projects as funding becomes

available, architects and engineers for these projects

must be nominated by the Board of Regents. He request-

ed that Mr. Wood, System Architect, review the proj-

ects concerned and comment on the recommendations for

project architects.



Mr. Wood submitted the following recommendations:



I. DRI - Phase I, Reno



This project, funded in 1973, is the initial

phase of building construction for the permanent

DRI facilities to be located on the site in

north Reno to be shared with Western Nevada Com-

munity College. The master development plan for

the entire 467 acre site was approved by the

Board in 1974. The Community College project,

the first stage of development of this site,

will begin construction next month. Some of the

general site development costs are to be financed

with both DRI and WNCC funds. Funds available

for this project, including those for general

site improvements, total $2,668,500, of which

$2,016,000 was authorized with Higher Education

Capital Construction funds in 1973 and $652,500

with State General funds in 1975.



Recommendations for nominations are as follows and

in the order listed:



1. Casazza, Peetz & Associates, Architects

2. Selden, Nespor, Larsen & Dolven, Architects



II. DRI - Solar Energy Research Building, Southern

Nevada



This project was authorized in 1975 with State

General funds. The total project budget is not

to exceed $370,000. The purpose of the building

is to provide a facility for research in the

design and performance of components of solar

energized systems for heating, cooling and power.



Recommendations for nominations are as follows

and in the order listed:



1. Leo Borns, Architect

2. Julius Gabriele, Architect



III. UNR - Campus Improvements



This project was authorized in 1975 with

$1,208,430 from the State General Fund and

$150,000 from the University Capital Improve-

ment Fee Fund for a total of $1,358,430.



Sub-projects can be categorized into A) Site

Improvements, B) Heating, Ventilating and Air

Conditioning Modifications, and C) Building

Improvements.



A) Site Improvements



1. SEA Engineers

2. Sharp, Krater & Associates, Engineers



B) Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning

Modifications



Central Management System



1. Stecher, Ainsworth & Associates, Engineers

2. Dinter Engineering



C) Building Improvements



The architect of record for the Physical Sci-

ences Complex is Casazza, Peetz & Associates.

Drawings, as well as the benefit of being

familiar with the project, belong to this

firm. The State Public Works Board indicated

a preference for the retention of Casazza,

Peets & Associates for the completion of

laboratories through the installation of

laboratory benches, etc. It is suggested

that this firm be nominated for the project.



IV. UNLV - Campus Improvements



This project was authorized in 1975 with

$1,339,200 from the State General Fund. Sub-

projects are site improvements concerning drain-

age, parking and landscaping.



Recommendations for nominations are as follows

and in the order listed:



1. Boyle Engineering

2. Montgomery Engineers



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Fong, carried without dissent.



B. Mr. Wood also presented a report concerning the 1975-79

Capital Improvement Program as approved by the 1975

Legislature (report identified as Ref. 45B and filed

with permanent minutes).



48. Allocation of Grants-in-Aid for 1975-76



A. Chancellor Humphrey noted that NRS 396.540 provides

for tuition waivers to "students from other states and

foreign countries, not to exceed a number equal to 3%

of the total matriculated enrollment of students for

the last preceding Fall semester." Board of Regents

policy directs that these grants-in-aid be allocated

for (a) foreign students; (b) students who contribute

to University programs in activities; and (c) out-

standing scholarship attainment. These allocations

are subject to annual review and approval by the Board

of Regents. A student receiving a grant-in-aid for

payment of out-of-state tuition may, at the discretion

of the President, also receive a grant-in-aid for the

payment of registration fees; however, such an award

is not automatic.



Dr. Humphrey also noted that Board policy provides for

grants-in-aid for payment of registration fees, based

on the same 3%, and directs that these grants-in-aid

shall be divided in the same categories as those grants-

in-aid for out-of-state tuition.



President Milam and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

Board policy be amended to delete the requirement for

identical allocations of grants-in-aid for out-of-state

tuition and registration fees.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Mason, carried without dissent.



B. Based on the 3% allowed, the following recommendations

were made for allocation of grants-in-aid for 1974-75:



In-State Out-of-State

University of Nevada, Reno



Music 44 30

Athletics 100 100

Other 64 78

Total 208 208



University of Nevada, Las Vegas



Music 33 33

Athletics 83 83

Other 50 50

Total 166 166



Community College Division



CCCC 64

NNCC 7

WNCC 50



Each CCD grant-in-aid is for a total of 16 credits per

semester and a grant may be divisible among two or

more students or may be awarded wholly to one student.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the above

allocations of grants-in-aid for 1975-76.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried with Miss Mason opposing and Mrs.

Knudtsen and Mrs. Fong abstaining.



C. Chancellor Humphrey also noted that there is a separate

category, established by Board policy, of grants-in-aid

for payment of registration fees for Nevada resident

Indians, the number of which is determined annually by

the Board of Regents. The following recommendations

were made by the Presidents for allocation of such

grants-in-aid for 1975-76:



University of Nevada, Reno 20

University of Nevada, Las Vegas 11

Clark County Community College 10

Northern Nevada Community College 14

Western Nevada Community College 10



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Ross, carried without dissent.



49. Administrative Salary Program



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in 1972, at the Board's

direction, work was begun on an administration salary

program which included most nonteaching, nonresearch facul-

ty. Although substantially completed in 1973, it was not

implemented. Early in 1974 the Board instructed the Ad-

ministration to proceed with the necessary work with the

objective of implementation during 1975-77. The study was

completed and tentative recommendations for salary ranges

for affected positions were distributed to the Board in

April and discussed in Executive Session with the under-

standing that following further review and discussion at

the Division level recommendations would be submitted to

the May meeting for action by the Board.



Chancellor Humphrey continued by noting that a question has

recently been raised by one of the Division Senates as to

whether or not adoption of such a salary program would be

in conflict with Section 4.5 of the UNS Code. This section

provides for the development of 3 salary schedules: one

for UNR, UNLV and the Office of the Chancellor and special

or service units; the second for DRI; and the third for

CCD. It further specifies that the schedule for UNR, UNLV

and special units shall be rank-related.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that although the Code includes

a procedure for its interpretation (Section 1.2.2), he

believed that it was preferable to request a clarifying

amendment of the Code. He had, therefore, invited the

Division Senates to address the problem of possible amend-

ment in order that the Administration and the Regents might

have the benefit of this advice, and had requested a re-

sponse from the Senates by November 1, 1975.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that further action by the

Board of Regents on the Administrative Salary Program be

deferred until the November meeting, and further recommended

that the Administration be directed to continue with the

development of this program to the point that implementation

could occur, if ultimately directed by the Board, prior to

the issuance of contracts for 1976-77.



Mr. Ross moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. John

Buchanan, carried without dissent.



50. Faculty Work Load Proposal



For purposes of review, Chancellor Humphrey submitted the

following brief summary of previous action on this matter:



(1) In December, 1974 the Board of Regents adopted Resolu-

tion #74-3 which referred draft regulations concern-

ing faculty work loads to the various Faculty Senates

and to the Administration for review and recommendation

in order that adoption of a set of regulations might be

accomplished prior to the issuance of faculty contracts

for 1975-76.



(2) In March, 1975 the Board agreed that this subject would

be scheduled for action at the April meeting. Subse-

quent to the March Board meeting, the Chancellor, the

Presidents of the instructional Divisions (or their

designees), and Senate Chairpersons met to discuss

Resolution #74-3, and possible alternatives. No con-

sensus was reached at that meeting; however, follow-

ing the meeting a revision was prepared by Chancellor

Humphrey in an attempt to interpret possible areas of

agreement. The revision was included with the agenda

(identified as Ref. 48A and filed with permanent

minutes).



(3) An alternate document was proposed by President Milam

(identified as Ref. 48B and filed with permanent

minutes).



(4) At the April meeting, Chancellor Humphrey reported

that President Donnelly, President Baepler and the UNLV

Senate had indicated concurrence with the document

identified as Ref. 48A. The Unit Senate had declined

to take action based on their conclusion that the doc-

ument affected only the instructional Divisions.



(5) Also at the April meeting, Joseph Doser, Chairman of

the WNCC Faculty Senate, reported the concurrence of

that group with the document identified as Ref. 48A,

with a minor change 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

...".



(6) At the April meeting, Dr. Pat Beaulieu reported that

the UNR Faculty Senate would wish to propose a number

of changes to the document identified as Ref. 48A.

Action on this matter was deferred until the May

meeting.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that this subject be

scheduled for Board action in November, 1975, and that

the Administration coordinate further development of a

document for the Board's consideration.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



51. Approval of Fund Transfer



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

transfer from the Contingency Reserve, Chancellor's Office:



#75-22 $14,800 to Chancellor's Office operating account

to provide sufficient funds to pay for consulting

fees, equipment and printing costs in excess of

that budgeted. Offsetting transfers have been

made from salary and fringe benefit savings.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



52. Proposed Revision of Refund Policy, UNR and UNLV



President Milam and President Baepler jointly recommended

that:



(1) The refund policy be modified for all students, in-

cluding auditors, for net credit load reductions and

withdrawals from the University, effective with the

implementation of the per-credit-hour fee charges

for the 1975 Fall semester:



(a) 100% refund if initiated prior to the first day

of classes for an instructional period.



(b) 75% refund during the first two weeks of in-

struction in a semester.



(c) 50% refund during the third, fourth and fifth

weeks of instruction in a semester.



(d) No refunds after the end of the fifth week.



Note: Registration and capital improvement fees, and

the UNLV student union fee are included. Course re-

lated special fees shall be prorated based on actual

usage. Nonresident tuition shall be refunded per the

above schedule for load reductions to 6 credits or

less or for complete withdrawal.



(2) All supplemental fees (ASUN/CSUN/GSA, athletic, health

service) shall be refunding 100% only for complete

withdrawal from the University during the first two

weeks of the semester, with no refunds thereafter.



(3) No refunds shall be made for health and accident

insurance premiums.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective Fall

semester, 1975.



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

carried without dissent.



53. Report of Investment Advisory Committee



Dr. Lombardi, Committee Chairman, presented the minutes of

the Investment Advisory Committee of April 18, 1975, and

recommended that the actions of the Committee be confirmed

(minutes identified as Ref. 37 and filed with permanent

minutes).



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



54. Health Service Fee, UNR



President Milam requested that the Health Service Fee at

UNR be increased from $18 to $25 per semester, effective

Fall semester, 1975. He noted that Dean Barnes had stated

that under the current fee structure the Student Health

Services would have a deficit of $70,000 in 1975-76, and

noted the following additional statements from Dean Barnes:



Total income has remained stable since 1970 when the

fee was last increased, while salaries and operating

expenses have increased each year. Professional and

classified salaries and fringe benefits will increase

by $43,290 next year. The cost of purchasing, pack-

aging and dispensing medications is expected to in-

crease by $11,000. Savings on salaries which were

realized this year are not anticipated for next year.



It is recommended that the current level of health

care be continued and that the Student Health Service

fee be increased from $18 to $25 per semester, ef-

fective Fall, 1975. This recommendation has the

support of the Student Health Service Advisory Board

and the Student Services staff. A majority of the

students who completed a questionnaire last Fall

preferred an increase in the fee to a reduction in

service.



The fees for Summer Session students are $1 for one

week, $3 for two to three weeks, and $5 for four to

six weeks. It is recommended that these fees remain

the same.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective Fall,

1975.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



55. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Humphrey commented that the independently audited

Financial Report for the year ended June 30, 1974 was avail-

able and would be distributed.



56. New Business



Mrs. Fong requested information on the procedure used by

the Art and Music Departments to apply for grant funds,

particularly to the Nevada Allied Arts Council.



President Baepler reported that any Department wishing to

request funds makes a proposal which is checked through

the Grants and Contracts unit, and reviewed by the Busi-

ness Office, and then approved by the President. Presi-

dent Milam stated that the same procedure is followed at

UNR.



The action agenda was completed and the informaton agenda was

submitted. The information agenda contained the following items

and is on file in the Chancellor's Office:



1) Ad Hoc System Committee on University Standards Report

2) Report of Disciplinary Cases

3) Board of Regents Special Projects Fund

4) Report of Purchases in Excess of $8000

5) Report of Foreign Travel

6) Report of Fund Transfers

7) Summary of Press Releases from Mackay School of Mines

8) Progress of University Projects



The meeting adjourned at 11:55 A.M.
