2. Supplemental Agenda



Upon motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Dr. White, six

supplemental items were added to the agenda.



3. Interim Rules and Disciplinary Procedures for Members of

the University Community



Mr. Hug opened discussion on the Interim Rules and Disci-

plinary Procedures which he had proposed, touching briefly

on the many problems on University Campuses throughout the

country and on the increasing concern within the State which

had prompted his proposal. He suggested that if steps are

not taken quickly within the University community itself,

the initiative for such action may be taken away from the

University. Mr. Hug stated that he recognized that the

proposed document was not perfect and perhaps needs revi-

sion. He also stated that he recognized that there had

been opposition expressed concerning the procedure of in-

troducing a policy statement for adoption by the Board with-

out prior review by faculty and students; however, he point-

ed out that provision has been made for review and sugges-

tions for revision are invited. He also pointed out that

prior review is desirable in most instances but the Board

of Regents is not prohibited from originating policy and

in fact has a responsibility to do so where appropriate.

Mr. Hug read the following statement on what he considered

to be the duty of the Board of Regents:



In the last analysis, the University of Nevada belongs

not to the faculty within its employment, nor to the

students receiving the benefit of an education within

its gates, but it belongs to the people of the State of

Nevada. It is the people who provide the tax dollars

to build the classrooms and laboratories. It is the

people who pay the salaries of the faculty. It is the

people whose children are being educated by the Uni-

versity.



The people are demanding and the people are entitled

to demand, that the University of Nevada be operated

within certain basic guidelines. They are not asking

a great deal. They are asking that the teachers teach

what they are employed to teach. They are asking that

the students study and learn. They are asking that the

buildings they have provided are not destroyed or de-

faced. They are asking that the rights of the majority

of students who proceed with their education not be

destroyed by the few who believe that their cause is

above the law and justifies violence or disruption.



How is it that we, as Regents, presume to speak for

the people of Nevada? The Constitution of the State

of Nevada provides that the University of Nevada is to

be governed by a Board of Regents who are elected by

the people. It does not provide that the University

is to be governed by the faculty whom it employs nor

the students who attend it, but by a Board which the

people select.



The people are entitled to have their elected Board

establish rules of acceptable conduct for students,

acceptable terms of employment for faculty and pro-

cedures for enforcement of both. The rules and pro-

cedures which I propose today are both fair and reason-

able. I believe they should be enacted. I believe

the faculty and students and alumni should have an

opportunity to submit revisions for our consideration

in the future. But, until the people of the State of

Nevada choose to amend their Constitution to provide

that the faculty or students are to govern the Uni-

versity, the weight of the responsibility is on the

Board of Regents. I intend to perform my duty as a

member of the Board of Regents, as I see it, and I

intend to vote for this Code of Conduct today.



At the conclusion of his statement Mr. Hug recommended that

the Interim Rules be adopted and asked for discussion from

the Board.



Dr. Lombardi moved adoption of the Interim Rules and Dis-

ciplinary Procedures for Members of the University Communi-

ty. Motion seconded by Mr. Jacobsen.



Mr. Seeliger commented on the number of letters received in

support of positive action by the Board and quoted from a

letter from Mr. Lou Bergevin, President of the State Board

of Education, endorsing adoption of the Interim Rules. Mr.

Seeliger expressed his own endorsement and urged adoption

by the Board.



Mrs. Knudtsen reported that she had received a great many

letters expressing concern and urging action by the Board.

She said she believed it important that the University com-

munity recognize that the Board itself is very aware that

the Campuses have been fortunate in the mature and respon-

sible conduct on the part of most of the students and fac-

ulty. She pointed out that this document is not therefore

designed to permit hasty action to correct a situation but

rather to provide guidelines within which to avert serious

problems and to deal with future situations which might

arise. She agreed that if the University does not take

steps to reassure the people, there could be grave problems

with restrictions imposed by the Legislature. She expressed

strong endorsement of the proposal.



Mr. Bilbray stated that it appeared that everyone seemed to

believe the document is a good one, but they believed that

the procedure was wrong. He said he believed that it should

have gone to the faculty for review and proposed changes

before a request for enactment by the Board. He pointed

out, that there is also a very strong pressure that some

positive action by taken by the Board and the University

and stated that he believed it apparent that action could

not be deferred for the length of time required for faculty

and student reaction. He suggested therefore that the

Interim Rules be adopted for the Summer Session only and a

new document be introduced in September.



Dr. Anderson commented on what had been termed a "departure

from established procedent" in the procedure allowed in

proposing the Interim Rules. He stated that the Board has

on a number of occasions proposed and adopted policy and

then, as suggested with the Interim Rules, referred the

matter to the faculty and students for review. He pointed

out that faculty and student participation was invited in

Mr. Hug's original letter of transmittal of the proposed

document and again in Mr. Hug's opening statement. Dr.

Anderson also pointed out that adequate review by the fac-

ulty and student groups could be expected to take a number

of months, particularly in view of their absence from Campus

for the next three months. He expressed concern that the

University not be forced to continue to operate in a void

during this period and strongly supported adoption of the

proposal.



Mr. Bilbray agreed that such a code is required, but sug-

gested again that it be considered in effect only until the

beginning of the Fall semester.



Dr. Anderson pointed out that most faculty and students

would be absent from the Campus during the Summer and thus

the official groups (i. e., Faculty and Student Senates)

would not be available for the review required.



Dr. Lombardi objected to setting a time limit on the faculty

and students. He noted that the proposal provides for stu-

dent and faculty review but suggested that the document be

adopted as an interim policy and review and suggestions by

the faculty and students be allowed to proceed according to

their own timetable.



Mr. Jacobsen recalled that the Board had requested the de-

velopment of such a policy a year ago and nothing had been

submitted. He urged the adoption of this proposal.



Mr. Grant stated that he too had received numerous letters

expressing endorsement of the statement and concern for

the reputation of the University. He recommended the

Interim Rules be adopted without strings except with the

understanding that suggestions for amendments were welcome

from both faculty and students.



Mr. Bell stated that he was not particularly pleased with

the procedure; however, he pointed out that the University

community must recognize that it faces a major problem.

He pointed out that the courts have upheld in many instances

appeals by students on the basis that the rules they are

charged with violating were unclear. Mr. Bell stated that

in order to successfully deal with a disciplinary problem,

the University must have rules which are clear, precise

and understandable. Those currently in effect at the

University of Nevada are vague and indefinite. Mr. Bell

continued by stating that he and others on the Board had

hoped the Administration, faculty and students would have

taken action sooner. He said that he, as a Regent, if the

proposed Interim Rules were adopted, would be willing to

hear any requests for revision or even for complete re-

jection; however, some kind of interim statement on conduct

is necessary to govern the conduct of the University com-

munity. He stated again that he was willing to listen to

any suggestions for changes but cautioned against ignoring

the growing concerns within the State.



Mr. Ronzone spoke of his six years as a member of the Board

and commented on the close working relationship during that

time between the Board and faculty and student groups. How-

ever, he said, it has always been clearly evident that re-

view and action by the Student and Faculty Senates takes a

long time. Therefore, he said, adoption of this proposal

should not be deferred.



Dr. White commented on the need for the adoption of guide-

lines and pointed out that the proposal by Mr. Hug consol-

idates and clarifies current procedures. She noted that it

was drawn in part from the University Code.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the Chancellor's Advisory

Cabinet, consisting for this purpose of the Presidents,

Directors, Faculty Senate Chairmen and Student Body Presi-

dents, met to discuss this matter. The Cabinet does not

vote; however, clearly the consensus was that it would be

best to postpone adoption of these interim rules and pro-

cedures until October, 1970, by which time the faculty and

student organizations would have acted. Chancellor Humphrey

noted that the Cabinet did not discuss in any detailed way

the provision of the proposed rules and procedures, but did

discuss at length the possibility that the Board might a-

dopt this document without referring it to faculty and stu-

dents for consideration.



Mr. Humphrey stated that he believed that the purpose of the

Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet is to make its advice avail-

able to the Chancellor and, on important issues such as

this, to the Board. He pointed out that members of the

Cabinet were present and could, as always, express their

own individual views. Chancellor Humphrey stated that he

did not concur with this consensus of the Advisory Cabinet

and did not recommend this course of action to the Board.

He noted that he respected the members of this group and

did not, therefore, go against their advice lightly.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that he believed the University

faces a crisis and that recent events have proven that

present rules are not adequate and the enforcement proce-

dures are not operable. He said that he also believed that

the University faces a crisis in public and legislative

acceptance. The University must, he said, retain the in-

itiative to solve University problems. If we procrastinate

and do not meet our obligations, he said he would be con-

cerned that some other groups would solve the University's

problems in a perhaps less acceptable way.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that he was also very much aware

of recently expressed attitudes by members of the Senate

Finance Committee concerning the University's problems and

that he was also sensitive to the fact that the Board re-

quested the Administration last July, and several times

since, to develop a code of conduct -- being especially

conscious of this problem because the proposed Student Bill

of Rights did not provide for responsibilities but rather

for the rights of the students. He noted that the Adminis-

tration had not provided the Board with the advice it had

requested.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board adopt the

interim rules and invite faculty and student groups to

present their suggestions for amendments just as soon as

they are ready.



President Zorn opened his comments by noting that the role

of the Campus President involves interpreting the Univer-

sity and its policies to its various publics, including

attitudes and ideas of the faculty and student body to

Regents, and Regents and public concerns to the Campus. He

reported that the proposed interim disciplinary policies

undoubtedly have been the most widely discussed on the UNLV

Campus of any matter during the past year and despite the

end of the academic year complications, there has been much

analysis and a widely articulated reaction. He said that

he would estimate that well over 3/4 of the faculty are

strongly negative, not so much to the substance but rather

feel that the importance warrants initial input of faculty

and student government particpation. President Zorn con-

tinued by saying that there is widespread feeling that the

UNLV Campus has, and can continue to deal responsibly with

potentialities of disruptive activities. There is recog-

nition, he said, that outside influences demand "action

now", but there is also a feeling that faculty and student

governing bodies would give prompt attention to this during

the Summer months. Committee work could proceed during the

Summer and faculty would volunteer their time now that the

Board of Regents has expressed its concern.



President Zorn stated that since no present jeopardy exists,

by virtue of the unique character of Summer School students,

and conceivable since immediate collaboration could demon-

strate tangible development, he urged that a reasonably

brief time be alloted to permit customary interaction of

Campus and Regent in major policy formulation.



President Zorn continued by stating that he wished to em-

phasize that much of the document would be generally accept-

able, but some aspects need attention. He stated that he

believed the success of any policy, the success of any

Campus, vitally depends on mutual understanding and respect

of the various elements of the situation. He suggested

that the Regents could profit by enlisting the good will

and active cooperation of faculty and student government

and their consitituencies, and that if the faculy and stu-

dents were disaffected, the Administration would never have

their support. Dr. Zorn stated that he believed it possible

to accommodate the various views and hoped that the spirit

of unity could be retained in the total University commu-

nity.



President Miller stated that he agreed that the need for a

statement of this sort is clear, noting that he too has

heard from students, faculty and members of the community

on the matter. He reported that there appears to be no

significant opposition to the content of the document or

to the adoption of a set of rules and procedures; however,

he said he believed that referral to the faculty and stu-

dents before adoption would be desirable. He cited the

following advantages to such referral, with a deadline for

response:



(1) Rules would not be imposed but mutually developed

and agreed upon.



(2) Combined effort would show the State that all

areas of University community are concerned and

willing to develop rules and live by them.



(3) Will preserve the well-established procedures in

the University for the development of policy.



President Miller recommended referral of the Interim Rules

to the faculty and students with a deadline for response.



Acting Director Warburton, speaking on behalf of DRI, ex-

pressed concern from faculty viewpoint only, noting that

DRI has no student body. He stated that individually and

collectively they support in general terms that part of

the document which refers to the faculty. They recognize

need for rules and also recognize that the Board of Regents,

Administration, faculty and students must separately and

collectively be involved in solving problems which the Uni-

versity faces. Mr. Warburton stated that the DRI faculty

will apply itself in every way to review of this document

whenever it is referred to them.



Director Donnelly noted that his comments would be based on

his experience in areas other than Nevada, but noted they

were also drawn from his experience with acts of violence

on other Campuses. He said he believed the proposed Interim

Rules to be a fair document and stated clearly. He ques-

tioned whether the procedure would work well for the Commu-

nity College Division but noted that necessary changes to

accommodate that Division could be handled during the review

period. He pointed out, however, that it was important to

recognize that rules will not prevent violence but merely

give the Administration the tools to deal with such a sit-

uation.



Mr. Walsh commented that under present rules, handling of

student disciplinary cases cannot be done effectively.

Present rules and procedures were adopted by the students

and never submitted to the Board of Regents, therefore, are

not legally enforceable.



Dr. John Vergiels, Chairman, UNLV Faculty Senate, reported

that there had not been time for the faculty to meet on this

but that there was a great deal of opposition, not to the

contents of the document, but to the procedure. He said he

believed the issue here is their feeling that the matter

could have been handled differently; if it had, the results

may not have been different, but the faculty feels they

should have been involved. He also stated that the faculty

feels that over the Summer they can get together for the

necessary review. He suggested this was really a matter of

the Board of Regents allowing the faculty and students to

become involved so that the appropriate behavior might be

assured. If the Interim Rules are passed, he said, the

faculty want a time limit so that it would require consider-

ation again in October.



Dr. Edmund Barmettler, UNR Faculty Senate Chairman, stated

that he had polled the UNR Senators and the consensus was

that the faculty needs to be involved and is capable of

acting during the Summer and coming up with a response.

He stated that there is a strong feeling of support of the

document itself; however, the faculty requests setting a

suspense date of October, at which time they will have

submitted a revision to the document.



Dr. John Sharp, DRI Faculty Senate Chairman, noted that the

DRI faculty has not had an opportunity to formally consider

this document; however, people who have commented individ-

ually have mentioned that they find the proposed rules

similar to those under which they are presently working.

There is some feeling, he said, that it would have been

better to go through the procedure of referring this matter

to the faculty before Board of Regents action is taken. Dr.

Sharp endorsed the suggestion that if the Interim Rules are

adopted it be for a specific period and faculty and student

response be required by a specified date.



Mr. Bell suggested that it might be a good idea to have the

document adopted as an interim procedure with a six month

time limit; if faculty and student groups do not react dur-

ing that time, the document would become final.



Miss Del Papa reported that UNR students do not question the

merits of the document. She pointed out that much of the

code already exists in some form in several University pub-

lications. She stated that the Board of Regents has the

respect of the students and community; however, if the code

is adopted without a deadline she feared there would be

trouble.



Mr. Myers, CSUN President, said he agreed with the sugges-

tion of Mr. Bell that a six month time limit be imposed.

He said he believed the students could work during the

Summer to conduct the necessary review.



Discussion from the floor was invited and statements were

made by:



Mr. Frank Fahrenkopf, UNR Alumni Association

A spokesman for the Independent American Party

Professor Herbert Wells, AAUP Las Vegas Chapter

Dr. John Lindberg, AAUP Las Vegas Chapter

Mr. Robert Sparks, Nevada State Elks Association

Dr. E. K. Grotegut, AAUP Reno Chapter

Mr. Bob Mc Laughlin, UNLV alumnus

Mr. Marv Byers, Reno businessman

Dr. Thomas Tucker, UNR faculty member



Mr. Bell moved that the motion be amended to provide that

the Interim Rules be truly considered interim in nature,

that they be in full force and effect until the regular

meeting of the Board of Regents December 11-12, 1970, at

which time they be approved as a permanent statement of

policy either in their present form or in some form as may

be determined by revisions proposed by students, faculty,

Administration or Regents. Motion to amend seconded by

Mr. Jacobsen.



President Miller expressed support of the amendment, stating

he believed it would accomplish the objective of involve-

ment.



Addition statements in support of the amendment were made

from the floor by:



Judy Hanlon, UNLV Graduate Students Association

Janet Travis, UNLV faculty member

Elmer Rusco, AAUP Reno Chapter

Dr. Robert Pearsall, AAUP Las Vegas Chapter

Dr. Robert Boord, former UNLV Faculty Senate Chairman



Motion to amend carried without dissent. Main motion as

amended carried without dissent.



4. Proposed Statement of Policy Concerning Student Publications



Mr. Hug introduced his proposed resolution concerning stu-

dent publications (identified as Ref. L and filed with per-

manent minutes). He commented that concern has been ex-

pressed by members of the Board of Regents that a Univer-

sity cannot avoid being in the position of a publisher in

relation to its student publications. He read the follow-

ing from a publication of the American Bar Association to

illustrate his point:



The regular student Press is often distinguishable

from other publications in that it frequently cannot

be treated as though it were an enterprise financially

and legally separate from the University. Student news-

papers may be supported by compulsory student fees,

other direct or indirect institutional subsidies. They

may be legally integrated with the operation of the

University in a fashion where the University is answer-

able under the law for the actionable statements inju-

rious to others. They may be associated with the

Department of Journalism or other curricular disci-

plines carrying academic recognition and supervision.

In each of these instances and others the integration

of the student Press within the University may make it

appropriate that rules be provided for its fair regu-

lation and protection.



Mr. Hug stated that this is the situation in which the

University of Nevada and the Board finds themselves. The

Board of Regents does not wish to censor or to exercise

editorial control; however, it does ask two things:



(1) That obscenity and vulgarity be kept out of

student publications.



(2) That the student publications abide by the

canons of responsible journalism.



Mr. Seeliger agreed that he and other members of the Board

are concerned about the language which has been appearing

in the two newspapers. He suggested that if this language

were acceptable it would appear in commercial newspapers

which, he pointed out, it does not. This kind of language

would perhaps be appropriate to the "Berkeley Barb", he

said, but its use in the UNR and UNLV student publications

causes severe damage to the Universities' and the students'

images.



Mr. Jacobsen concurred with the concern expressed by Mr.

Hug and Mr. Seeliger. An additional concern, he said, was

the frequency of occasions when one or both of the publica-

tions uses stories which have not been documented and are

often not factual. In spite of this, Mr. Jacobsen said, he

was opposed to this resolution and moved to table action

until October. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray.



Dr. Donnelly expressed concern over the resolution, sug-

gesting that it was not necessary in that good guidelines

already exist. He said he questioned the requirement con-

tained in the resolution "that prior to each semester

registration a positive action of the Board of Regents will

be required to assess the full student body fee and allow

allocation of any part of that fee for student publication

for the coming semester; and a positive action of the Board

of Regents will be required to provide office and work space

for such publications upon the Campus." Dr. Donnelly sug-

gested that such action would unnecessarily hamstring the

operation of any publication.



Dr. White reported that she has received continuous com-

plaints from students and parents over having to support

newspapers through their fees when they publish such ob-

jectionable material.



Mr. Seeliger stated that he had no objection to tabling

this matter as long as it was clear that such action did

not imply endorsement of this kind of publication. It was

agreed that no endorsement of this kind was implied by this

action.



Miss Del Papa invited the Board to appoint two of its mem-

bers to sit on the Student Publications Board. Mr. Hug

suggested that this would be inappropriate since it would

place Regents in a position to exercise editorial control

and it was not the intention of the Board to do so.



Dr. Lombardi spoke of an additional concern which the Board

has expressed at various times, that of the possibility of

the Board being sued for libel as the result of some action

on the part of the student publications. Mr. Humphrey noted

that the University is protected by insurance in the event

of such legal action; however, he pointed out that more

important than the insurance protection is that people not

be libeled in the first place.



Motion to table carried.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved that this matter be referred to the

Student Publications Board and they be invited to develop a

statement, to be considered by the Student Affairs Committee

in October and then by the Board of Regents, on how the

student publications shall be operated to conform to the

expressed concerns of the Board of Regents. Motion seconded

by Dr. White, carried without dissent.



Dr. Lombardi moved that "The Interim Rules and Disciplinary

Procedures for Members of the University Community" be pro-

duced in pamphlet form and distributed to all faculty and

students. Motion seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried without

dissent.



5. Report on Revenue Bond Issues



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in May the Board had auth-

orized him to attempt a negotiated sale of revenue bonds for

Physical Science, Phase II, UNR - $1.9 million; College of

Education, UNR - $2 million; and the College of Education,

UNLV - $1.6 million. He introduced Mr. Nick Smith, fiscal

advisor to the University on bond issues, who spoke con-

cerning the continuing adverse conditions of the bond mar-

ket. Mr. Smith advised that the only way to sell bonds now

is to cut maturities and cause flow of additional student

fees through these accounts to provide the required finan-

cial coverage. Chancellor Humphrey reported that the Uni-

versity has been successful in getting commitments for $3

million and an additional $500,000 can probably be placed.

This will, he said, take care of the Education building at

UNLV and one building at UNR. These issues will have to be

for 15 year maturities which would then require pledging of

more of current capital improvement fee revenue than plan-

ned. This in turn would require an increase in revenue at

UNLV and an adjustment at UNR.



President Zorn stated that UNLV is prepared to meet this

requirement by recommending that the waivers of the $42

per semester capital improvement fee be withdrawn from all

students other than those who receive it as a condition of

contract (i. e., professional staff and dependents and

graduate assistants).



President Miller recommended that the revenue bond proceeds

be applied to the Physical Science, Phase II since there is

also Federal funding available for this project, and that $9

of the ASUN fee be pledged to provide the additional cover-

age required for the issue. (Pledging of the $9 does not

mean the expenditure of this amount from ASUN fees.)



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed the Presidents' recommenda-

tions.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



6. Mohave Field Laboratory



Dean Bohmont presented a proposal that the University of

Nevada System, including the Agricultural Experiment Station

as the primary facility manager, be authorized to establish

a new Field Laboratory near the most southern tip of Nevada,

identified as the Fort Mohave area. He noted that the pro-

posal has been under study for over three years and is a

direct result of a request by the Colorado River Commission.

Specifically, the proposal provides that:



(1) The Colorado River Commission be requested to deed

to the Board of Regents 120 acres of a 140 acre

parcel along the Colorado River, with the balance

of 20 acres to be jointly administered with the

Nevada Fish and Game Commission which plans a Fish

Hatchery Development.



(2) Joint planning between UNLV and UNR will coordinate

the use of the 120 acres for research and develop-

ment programs.



(3) A development cost of the property in the amount

of $66,000 as a one time budget item be requested

from the State Legislature on an identified basis

in the 1971-73 biennium.



(4) An annual operating budget item of $25,000 per

year (total biennium request of $50,000) be re-

quested in 1971-73 for the Agricultural Experi-

ment Station to operate the facility for use by

the entire University System.



(5) Annual detailed reports on programs, projects and

use will be made to the Colorado River Commission

and to the Regents of the University.



Detailed proposals for specific programs to be conducted by

UNR and UNLV were transmitted with the agenda (identified

as Ref. V and filed with permanent minutes).



President Zorn and President Miller endorsed this proposal

as a joint undertaking by both Campuses.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended the concept be approved in

principle and that further consideration be given to this

proposal from a budgetary standpoint in July and August

when the total 1971-73 budget is considered.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



7. Greenhouse Industries Demonstration and Training Program



Dean Bohmont reported briefly on the continuing discussions

with the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and representatives

of Greenhouse Industries concerning the feasibility of es-

tablishing a demonstration and training program in Las

Vegas. He noted that the State Employment Security has ex-

pressed interest in participating in such a training program

for the hard-core unemployed and the Greenhouse Industries

may be receptive to providing funds for construction of the

necessary facilities on Las Vegas owned land. Dean Bohmont

stated that he will, at the appropriate time, recommend a

budget for consideration by the Administration, Board of

Regents and 1971 Legislature for operation of the demon-

stration portion as a Statewide public service program.

12. Request for Change in Department Names and Structures



A. President Zorn presented a request from the College of

Science and Mathematics, with his endorsement, that

the Department of Planetary Sciences and Engineering

be named the Department of Engineering, Geography and

Geology.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective

July 1, 1970.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



B. President Zorn presented a request from the College of

Business and Economics, with his endorsement, that the

Department of General Business be divided into a Depart-

ment of Marketing and a Department of Finance.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective

July 1, 1970.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



13. Approval of Purchase in Excess of $5000



President Zorn recalled that in April the Board approved a

request that a Burrough's E-4394 electronic accounting mach-

ine be leased by the UNLV Business Office at an aggregate

cost of $6600 per year for the equipment plus related soft-

ware and servicing. The lease terms also contained an op-

tion to purchase the equipment at the end of the lease per-

iod for $2293. Dr. Zorn asked that they be allowed to sub-

stitute the Burrough's E-6494 machine at an added rental

cost of $41.96 per month. He noted that this would result

in an aggregate cost of $7142.28 per year (increased from

$6600 per year) and an option to purchase at the end of the

lease period for $2622. The E-4394 machine is not compa-

tible with the UNLV batch terminal system which will connect

with the Sigma 7 computer.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



14. Saga Food Service Contracts



A. Dining Commons



President Zorn recommended that the Saga Food Service

contract for the Campus Dining Commons be renewed at

a 10% increase in total cost for a guaranteed period of

one year. He noted that the renewal provides for 237

feeding days (increased from 226); an increase of 14

cents per day for the per day rate; and a 20 cents per

meal increase for students without a meal ticket. There

will be 11 more days of food service provided; there-

fore, the effective increase of 4.9%. President Zorn

also reviewed the results of their efforts to solicit

bids from other firms. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, car-

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



B. Donald C. Moyer Campus Student Union Snack Bar



President Zorn recommended the approval of a contract

with Saga Food Service to assume the operation of the

Student Union Snack Bar for one year, beginning July 1,

1970.



The contract provides that Saga shall:



(1) have the exclusive right to operate the snack bar;

(2) be responsible for all costs of operation;

(3) carry adequate public liability and produce lia-

bility insurance;

(4) purchase the existing inventory of food supplies;

(5) employ such students as it considers necessary;

(6) return to the Board of Regents a rebate of gross

income based on the following schedule:



$0 to $100,000 10%

$100,000 and above 14%



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the contract has been ap-

proved on behalf of the Student Union Board and he recom-

mended approval by the Board of Regents.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



15. Increase in Room and Board Charges



President Zorn recommended that room and board charges at

UNLV be increased by $110 per year, effective Fall, 1970.

It was illustrated from data submitted on 1969-70 room and

board charges at other western Universities that had this

increase been in effect in 1969-70, UNLV would have been in

sixth place among the institutions compared (UNLV and UNR

actually were in 13th place during 1969-70 among the insti-

tutions compared). Student Officers present expressed

agreement with the necessity for the increase. Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the increase be approved as recom-

mended.



16. College of Education Building



President Zorn reported that the final architectural plans

and specifications for the College of Education building

were complete. Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the financing,

budget and space allocation for the project as transmitted

with the agenda (identified as Ref. E and filed with perma-

nent minutes).



Presentation of the final plans was made using a series of

photographic slides. The architect noted that the current

estimate exceeds the budget by approximately $300,000 and

stated that following conferences between his firm, the

University and the State Planning Board, they jointly rec-

ommend the following bidding procedure:



Base bid to cover construction of the entire project

except for the Auditorium building at an estimated

construction cost of $2,620,546. Two deductive and

thirteen additive alternates would be included:



Deductive Alternate A - Exclude air conditioning dis-

tribution system designed by

architects and replace with

standard diffuser system.



Deductive Alternate B - Exclude the interior develop-

ment of the third floor of

area A which is office area

for future staff, reducing

contract by $150,000.



Estimated Cost $2,470,546



Additive Alternates



C - Add Auditorium + 126,000



D - Upgrade quality of plumbing, elec-

trical fittings and fixtures + 16,585



E - Add storage cabinets and counters + 27,500



F - Special building equipment cash

allowance + 34,000



G - Add coat racks and projection screens + 3,930



H - Add paving tile around courtyard and

entrances and in heavy traffic areas + 26,000



I - Room directories + 700



J - Fountains in courtyard + 5,150



Total $2,710,411



Total budget is $2,714,000.



To complete the project, as defined by the College of

Education, will require the following five additive

alternates:



K - Upgrade finish hardware, install

partitions + $ 11,000



L - Art Work + 27,000



M - Landscaping + 45,000



N - Concrete slabs 6", fire lanes + 9,500



O - Reinstall offices in third floor + 150,000



Total $ 242,500



Dr. Zorn stated that much attention has been given to this

project and of concern now is how the bids will come in.

He pointed out that there is no way of testing those re-

sults until the bidding procedure is completed. He also

noted that he, the Chancellor and Mr. Hancock of the State

Planning Board, had discussed this matter at length and

they now agree that the procedure outlined by the architect

is acceptable to all of them and he recommended the Board

approve the architect's plans and specifications and auth-

orize the project to go to bid.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bell, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



17. Performing Arts Center



President Zorn reported that the bids were opened on May 28,

1970 for construction of the Performing Arts Center, with

all bids substantially in excess of the budget. He ex-

pressed concern that this project be kept alive and is pro-

ceeding. He said he believed the approach should be to

phase the construction; specifically, that the Drama Thea-

tre be fully constructed at an architect's estimated cost

of $1,957,410 and the remaining funds be used to partially

construct the Concert Hall. He recommended the bids be re-

jected, and project redesigned and bid as suggested.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that this was an exceptional pro-

cedure but, all facts considered at this time, seemed to be

a reasonable way to proceed. He added that the current es-

timate for completing the Concert Hall at a later date would

be $531,000. He stated that the State Planning Board Man-

ager also considers this a reasonable way to proceed, based

on a conference call he and Dr. Zorn had with Mr. Hancock.



Mr. Hug pointed out that the costs of this project have

doubled since it was originally proposed. He asked if it

were still considered impractical to build one building

to accommodate both programs.



Dr. Zorn explained the reasons why the two functions are

not considered compatible. Dean Harris agreed, pointing

out that the acoustical requirements are different for each

facility.



Mr. Hug stated that there must be a clear understanding that

by agreeing to phasing of the construction in this manner,

a high priority is in effect being placed on the expenditure

of approximately $500,000 which is not now available.



President Zorn stated that this was recognized but noted

that this action of the Board would not give the project a

place in the present priority list.



Mr. Seeliger asked if this project, when completed, would

serve a large portion of the student population. Dr. Zorn

said it would have many users and would be used extensive-

ly by the community.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the State Planning

Board be requested to reject all bids for the Performing

Arts Center and have the project redesigned for construc-

tion in two phases as described by President Zorn.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



18. Traffic Code



President Miller recommended certain changes to the Traffic

Code as adopted by the Board of Regents June 11, 1965.

Present code with suggested revision was transmitted with

the agenda (identified as Ref. H and filed with permanent

minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the changes as

requested, noting that existing Code will remain in effect

at UNLV until changed by Board of Regents action.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



President Zorn reported that the UNLV Campus Parking Commit-

tee is presently reviewing the Code and it is expected that

a report and recommendation will be forthcoming soon.



19. Request for Adjustment in Board and Room Charges



President Miller reported that he did not wish to recommend

an increase at UNR over the present room and board rates of

$495 per semester. However, he requested that certain ad-

justments be made in 1970-71, as follows:



Full board and room $495 per semester

Room (double occupancy) 238 per semester

Room (single occupancy) 353 per semester

Board (20 meal plan) 257 per semester

Board (14 meal plan - no breakfast) 244 per semester

Board (15 meal plan - no Saturday

or Sunday meal) 217 per semester



All Freshmen will be required to have board and room con-

tracts at $495. Sophomores will be required to have board

and room but may select a meal plan. There will be no re-

quirement for Juniors or Seniors. Preference for rooms

will be given to those selecting a contract including board.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the students have wanted this

kind of flexible program for some time and it should be a

popular move. He recommended approval of the adjustments

as requested.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



20. HHFA Corporate Trust 30 Funds



President Miller requested transfer of the following funds

from the Building Repair Reserve, HHFA Corporate Trust 30

Funds:



$6,433.62 from Equipment Reserve to Account 1-22-6001

for purchase of furniture items for Student Housing.



$13,583.28 from Equipment Reserve to Account 1-22-6005

for purchase of equipment, including a pot washer,

ventilating hoods, grill, coffee urns.



$9,920.26 from Building Reserve to Account 1-22-6005

for remodeling and repairs such as light fixtures,

loading dock and new electric motors.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. White, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



21. Request for Right of Way



President Miller recommended approval of a request by the

City of Reno for a 10' by 40' right of way on the west

boundary of the Main Station Farm to provide for a connec-

tion to the storm drain. The right of way agreement was

prepared by the Attorney General and approved by the Col-

lege of Agriculture.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Dr. White, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation is approved.



22. Disposal of Greenhouse, Newlands Station, Fallon



Mr. Pine reported that the College of Agriculture has re-

quested authority to dispose of a greenhouse at the Newlands

Station, Fallon. The wooden portion of the greenhouse is

12' x 18' and the glass portion is 17' x 24'. This struc-

ture was erected about 1912 and was heated by an oil fur-

nace; however, the furnace has not been operated for the

past 20 years. Mr. Pine noted that the Service to the Blind

section of the State Division of Health, Education, Welfare

and Rehabilitation has expressed interest in the building

and the College of Agriculture has requested authorization

to dispose of the facility through the State Surplus Prop-

erty Section.



President Miller recommended approval. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



23. Progress Report on University Projects



A report from the Director of Physical Plant on the status

of all capital improvement projects under the supervision

of UNR was transmitted with the agenda. A similar report

from the State Planning Board was distributed. Both re-

ports are on file in the Chancellor's Office.



24. Class A Action



President Miller presented, with his recommendation for

approval, the following four proposals by the UNR Faculty

Senate:



(1) Pass-Fail Grading - Under the present grading system

the grades A, B, C be considered satisfactory (S) and

the grades D, F be considered unsatisfactory (U). (Re-

sults of mail ballot: 208 approved, 47 disapproved,

5 abstained.)



(2) The grade Withdrawal Passing (WP) be replaced by with-

drawal (W) and Withdrawal Failure (WF) be replaced by

F. (Results of mail ballot: 233 approved, 23 disap-

proved, 4 abstained.)



(3) Students shall be permitted to drop any course anytime

during the semester before the official final examin-

ation period. However, one week after the midsemester

date the Instructor shall be required to record a W

or F for the student dropping the course.



(Note: Major changes are lengthening the period in

which a student may drop without a grade being record-

ed - from the present 6 weeks to 9 weeks - and elimi-

nation of the present requirement of the Dean's approv-

al for a student who wishes to drop.)



(Results of mail ballot: 199 approved, 55 disapproved,

6 abstained.)



(4) Unsatisfactory progress reports shall be posted by each

Instructor before the midsemester date. Mail notifi-

cation of students who are doing unsatisfactory work

shall be discontinued. (Results of mail ballot: 185

approved, 70 disapproved, 5 abstained.)



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective Fall

semester, 1970.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



25. Proposed Reorganization of College of Business Administra-

tion, UNR



President Miller presented a proposal by the College of

Business Administration for certain organizational realign-

ments within the College (proposal identified as Ref. J

and filed with permanent minutes). Specifically, the Col-

lege proposed that the present five Departments be reduced

to three teaching Departments and the the Bureau of Busi-

ness and Economic Research. Additionally, it proposes the

designation of an Associate Dean of Baccalaureate Studies

and an Associate Dean for Graduate Studies, both reporting

to the Dean as staff positions. President Miller stated

that his recommendation for approval contained the condi-

tion that no additional expenditure of funds will be made

in order to effect this reorganization.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



26. College of Arts and Science



Chairman Hug stated that he had requested preliminary dis-

cussion be held at this meeting concerning the feasibility

of dividing the College of Arts and Science into two or

more Colleges. His purpose, he said, was to request this

matter be given consideration at the Campus level so that

the Administration might return with a recommendation prior

to the selection of a new Dean.



President Miller noted that this has been discussed by the

College for some time. He added that the Committee to

assist in the selection of a Dean has been appointed and

perhaps could have a recommendation at the July meeting.



By consensus this matter was deferred to a later meeting.



27. Revision of Time Payment Policy



President Miller recommended a revision of the present time

payment policy for payment of fees, tuition and board and

room. The present policy provides for 1/3 down, 1/3 in 30

days and the balance in 60 days and requires the signature

of a parent or guardian for the student under 21 years of

age.



President Miller reported that the proposed revision would

allow for two payments: the first upon registration and

the second by Friday of the fifth week of instruction with

a grace period of five working days. The signature of a

parent or guardian would no longer be required and non-

payment of the second installment would result in cancel-

lation of registration.



President Zorn requested that this revision also be approved

for UNLV. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval for both

Campuses.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the revision to the time payment policy

be approved as recommended.



28. Annexation by City of Reno



Chancellor Humphrey stated that the city limits of Reno

presently include a substantial part of the UNR Campus.

There are, he said, substantial advantages to inclusion of

the total Campus within the City of Reno and no disadvan-

tages have been identified. Mr. Pine distributed maps

showing the parts of the Campus included and excluded from

the City.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

the University request annexation by the City of Reno of

the balance of the UNR Campus.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



29. Estimated Financial Program, Fiscal Year 1970



Acting Director Warburton recalled that in April the Board

of Regents had instructed that certain steps be taken to

fund the operating deficit of the DRI. It is now possible,

he said, to estimate the year-end deficit at approximately

$130,000. As instructed, $80,000 of DRI unrestricted and

unallocated monies will be used, leaving an unfunding defi-

cit of approximately $50,000. Mr. Warburton requested the

Board to approve the use of up to $50,000 from Board of

Regents Special Projects Fund to fund the remaining deficit.



Mr. Warburton noted that the Yates-Debold Fund will still

have a deficit of $5,100 and is not included in the above

figures. He stated that arrangements have been made by

DRI to sell the film resulting from this project and, if

successful, this deficit will be covered.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that DRI has fully met its obli-

gation to clear the deficit to the extent possible with

its own resources and recommended approval of the expendi-

ture of up to $50,000 from the Board of Regents Special

Projects Fund as requested.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



30. Elko Community College Advisory Board Recommendation



Dr. Donnelly recalled that in April the following resolu-

tion by the Elko Community College Advisory Board was re-

ferred to President Miller and President Zorn for reference

to their Faculty Senates:



The Advisory Board requests that the University of

Nevada System modify its policy concerning admissions

to allow any student graduated from Elko Community

College in an Associate of Arts or Associate of

Science program to be admitted to the University as

a regular student in a baccalaureate level program.



This matter was further discussed at the May meeting at

which time it was agreed that action would be requested at

the June meeting.



President Miller reported that the UNR Faculty Senate had

endorsed the request of the ECC Advisory Board with the

understanding that "transfer credit will be granted only

for those courses which are equivalent to those offered

in baccalaureate programs at the University of Nevada."



President Zorn reported that review of this request had

been handled at UNLV by a committee which had taken action

identical to that reported by UNR.



Dr. Donnelly recommended approval of the Advisory Board re-

quest with the understanding as stated by the UNR Faculty

Senate recommendation. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



31. Advisory Committee for Planning for Community College in

Western Nevada



Dr. Donnelly requested authorization to proceed with the

creation of an advisory committee to assist in the planning

for a Community College in western Nevada. He proposed

that the committee be structured in a similar fashion to

the two existing advisory committees (Elko and Clark Coun-

ties) and that nominations be sought from western Nevada

Legislators and other concerned individuals. He estimated

that appointment of members could occur at the July meeting.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



32. Skill Training Center, Las Vegas



Dr. Donnelly reported as follows on the proposed Skill

Training Center to be established in Las Vegas:



On May 8, 1970, the Nevada Department of Education and

the Department of Employment Security submitted an a-

mended proposal to establish a Manpower Development

Training Skill Training Center in Las Vegas. This pro-

posal calls for a $405,000 expenditure in a two-year

period with $364,500 Federal contribution and $40,500

State matching contribution.



Included in the costs of the proposal is $105,000 for

leasing a warehouse facility at 827 North Main Street

in Las Vegas. Personnel planned in the proposal are a

Director, three Clerks, one Supervisor, one Counselor,

ten Instructors and one Shop Aide.



Four Occupational Cluster programs are planned: Basic

Education and Pre-Vocational Orientation, Clerical and

Office Occupation, Service Occupations such as Cooks,

Waitresses, and Food Checkers, and Mechanical-Electrical

Occupation. Approximately 200 individuals will be

trained in these programs.



MDTA programs are normally operated by Community Col-

leges. The Nevada Department of Education has asked

that the Community College Division operate the Skill

Training Center. There would be no cost to the Divi-

sion except that of processing checks and purchasing

equipment.



Trainees for the programs are selected by the Nevada

Employment Security Department. This pattern is con-

sistent for all MDTA programs.



The warehouse contains approximately 20,000 square

feet and is about six years old. It is a concrete slab

building and has parking for over 100 cars. There are

six offices partitioned in the building. It has rest-

room facilities and adequate space for the program.

Principal costs in remodeling would be in classroom

partitions, heating and air conditioning. It is an

adequate facility.



Dr. Donnelly reported that they have been unofficially noti-

fied that the program has been funded. He stated that he

believes the program is appropriate for the Community Col-

lege Division as a part of its community service function.

He asked that he be authorized to proceed with the opera-

tion of a Skill Training Center but that it be clearly

recognized that it is only a small part of a total Commu-

nity College program.



Assemblyman Dave Branch reported that the people of North

Las Vegas are very interested in the action of the Board

concerning the location of a Skill Training Center in that

they are vitally interested in having the Community College

in North Las Vegas. He asked that action on this matter be

tabled until next month to give North Las Vegas an oppor-

tunity to suggest an alternate location. He noted that

the Advisory Committee has not yet met and perhaps they too

would be interested in proposing an alternate location.



Dr. Donnelly pointed out that the ultimate location of a

Skill Training Center would not necessarily be the location

for a Community College. The facility for the Skill Train-

ing Center will be leased by MDTA. The Community College

Division will only operate the program.



Mr. Bilbray suggested that if the people in North Las Vegas

know what requirements are for the Center, they might be

able to come up with a better location than that presently

under consideration.



Dr. Donnelly noted that he was only requesting authoriza-

tion to proceed, not to select a site for the Community

College.



Chancellor Humphrey asked if it would be feasible to proceed

with all aspects of the Skill Training Center except its

location. Dr. Donnelly agreed that it would.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that Dr. Donnelly be author-

ized to proceed with all aspects of the Training Center ex-

cept for location with further discussion of that to occur

at the July meeting.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the Chancellor's recommendation be

approved.



33. Graduation List, Elko Community College



Dr. Donnelly reported that Elko Community College had held

its first Commencement Exercises on Wednesday, May 27, 1970

and had awarded the following degrees and diplomas:



Associate in Arts

34. Capital Improvement Program Request for 1971-73



Chancellor Humphrey submitted for consideration and approval

the 1971-73 University of Nevada System Capital Improvement

Program Request totaling $33,200,000. He noted that the

request represents $18,190,000 for the University of Nevada,

Las Vegas; $11,770,000 for the University of Nevada, Reno;

$3,000,000 for the Community College Division and $240,000

for the University of Nevada System. Of the $33,200,000

requested, $25,361,000 would be provided by State appropri-

ation and/or General Obligation Bonds and $7,839,000 would

be provided by University Revenue Bonds, cash on hand and

other sources.



Chancellor Humphrey also noted that included in the

$33,200,000 requested in the Capital Improvement Program

is a list of University of Nevada, Reno projects totaling

$2,264,000. He recommended that these projects be funded

from the University of Nevada, Reno Capital Improvement

Fee account or other non-appropriated sources, as funds

become available. State appropriations are not requested

for these projects.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that the University of Nevada

System's commitment to present the 1971-73 Capital Improve-

ment Program request to the State Planning Board at its

June 13, 1970 meeting had necessitated the production of

the document as an interim device. He noted that the

request will be presented to the Nevada State Legislature

in January, 1971 and considerable detail and editorial

revision will be added to this document before that date;

however, the priorities and dollar requests will remain

intact. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the

document as presented.



President Zorn commented on the UNLV Capital Improvement

Program for 1971-81, reflected on Page 10 of the document.

Of these items, eight are included in the 1971-73 request:



(1) Land Acquisition $ 470,000

(1) Instructional Building, Clark Community

College $ 1,500,000

(2) Instructional Building, Western Nevada

Community College 1,000,000

(3) Instructional Building, Elko Community

College 500,000

Total $ 3,000,000



Dr. Donnelly noted that there are no details included in

this document concerning the Community College request be-

cause there has not been time to develop the specific scopes

of work; however, he said, they will be ready by the time

the request is submitted to the Legislature in January 1971.



Chancellor Humphrey commented on the request for $240,000

for a building to meet the needs of the administrative

components of the University of Nevada System Office, the

Community College Division and the University Press.



Mr. David Wilkins explained how the space standards adopted

by the Board of Regents had been applied and the methods

used to arrive at the recommendations contained in the docu-

ment.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the document anticipates

doubling of the capital improvement fee. He recommended

that the Board indicate its intention to give this possi-

bility consideration so that the Presidents can deal with

this problem on the Campuses this Fall and a decision could

be made before the Capital Improvement Program Request goes

to the Legislature.



Chancellor Humphrey submitted the System Priority List for

1971-73 which had been developed for the lists submitted

by the Divisions as discussed earlier. Priorities are as

follows:



(1) Land Acquisition, UNLV $ 470,000

(2) Evans Watershed, UNR 116,000

(3) Site Development, UNLV 1,200,000

(4) Athletic Fields, UNLV 650,000

(5) Gymnasium, UNLV 4,184,000

(6) Physical Education Complex, Increment I,

UNR 5,400,000

(7) Natatorium, UNLV 1,118,000

(8) Physical Education Complex, Increment II,

UNR 1,000,000

(9) Instructional Building, Clark Community

College 1,500,000

(10) Instructional Building, Western Nevada

Community College 1,000,000

(11) Instructional Building, Elko Community

College 500,000

(12) System Administration Building 240,000

(13) Life Science & Physics, UNLV 4,233,000

(14) Central Air Conditioning - Chill Water

Lines, UNLV 780,000

(15) Library & Computer Center, Phase II,

UNLV 5,555,000

(16) Addition to Getchell Library, UNR 2,990,000

Total $30,936,000



Chancellor Humphrey also explained the method of financing

proposed for the 1971-73 Capital Improvement Program as

reflected on Page 52 of the document.



Mr. Bilbray expressed concern over the position of the Sys-

tem Administration building on the list and suggested it be

moved ahead of the Community College Division's request.

He questioned whether the Community College would require

facilities during the coming biennium. Chancellor Humphrey

said he believed it important that the request be made now

so that the Community College will be in a position to pro-

ceed. If they are not included in this request, they will

be precluded from proceeding until the 1973 Legislative

Session. He pointed out that the System Offices can con-

tinue to lease space if necessary; the Community College

Division may not be able to do so.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved that the Board of Regents accept the

document as the University's Capital Improvement Program

Request for 1971-73, that the list of priorities on Pages

51 and 52 and the supplemental UNR list on Page 25 be

approved, with the understanding that the document antic-

ipates an increase in the capital improvement fee which

the Board agrees to discuss with the Administration in the

Fall. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without

dissent.



35. Matching Funds for National Defense Student Loans



Chancellor Humphrey reported that UNR has received a supple-

mental allotment for the National Defense Student Loan Pro-

gram of $22,624 and UNLV has received $19,921 for a total

supplemental allotment of $42,545. This requires that 1/9

of the total in matching funds, or $4,727.22 be provided

by the University.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that in 1969 the Legislature

appropriated $25,000 to be used as matching funds for this

purchase. To date, $24,848 has been expended, leaving a

balance of $152. He recommended that matching funds for

the supplemental allotments be provided as follows:



State Appropriation $ 152.00

Teacher Cancellation Refund 3,555.59

David Russell Loan Fund 1,019.63

Total $4,727.22



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



36. Estimative Budgets for 1970-71



Chancellor Humphrey submitted for consideration and approval

Estimative Budgets for 1970-71 totaling $4,899,203, noting

these budgets exceeded the 1969-70 budgets of $4,515,106 by

8.5%.



Mr. Mark Dawson explained the changes which had been incor-

porated into the 1970-71 Estimative Budgets:



University of Nevada, Reno



(1) Evening Division and Off-Campus Programs, separately

budgeted in the past, were combined to expedite admin-

istration.



(2) In the past, debt service has been charged to various

Auxiliary Enterprises accounts based upon the cash

flow of the particular unit. In an attempt to more

realistically identify the expense of each unit, this

charge is being assessed based upon the value of the

building.



(3) In making the debt service assessment against Nye Hall

in this manner, a subsidy is needed in the amount of

$21,474. This subsidy has been prorated among the

other residence halls which, because of this change

in assessment of debt service and the fact that the

older halls do not have debt service, are able to gen-

erate a surplus.



(4) Due to the small number of people being served, the

Auxiliary Enterprises accounts at Stead require a sub-

sidy in the amount of $26,578. This subsidy has been

accommodated by reduction of the Buildings and Grounds

charges for services. Buildings and Grounds, there-

fore, has less money to spend for maintenance at Stead.



University of Nevada, Las Vegas



(1) The Tonopah Hall and Dining Commons budgets have been

combined for administrative convenience. A $110 per

year board and room increase (approved by the Board

earlier in the meeting) was incorporated into the

budget.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the 1970-71 Estimative

Budgets be approved with the continuing understanding that

expenditures will not exceed receipts in any budget.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the Chancellor's recommendation be

approved.



37. Alcoholic Beverage Policy



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in May, the Board of

Regents received a proposal from President Miller which

requested a change in policy regulating the use and pos-

session of alcoholic beverages at UNR. He noted that the

present regulations provide that "the storage, possession

and use of alcoholic beverages is not allowed in Univer-

sity-supervised houses, apartments, residence halls, on

sorority and fraternity property, on the University Campus,

or on other University property."



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the proposed policy state-

ment had been developed by an ad hoc committee of 15 which

included students, faculty, alumni and a representative of

the Reno Police Department, and was recommended by Presi-

dent Miller. Proposed policy statement reads as follows:



PROPOSED POLICY FOR POSSESSION AND USE OF

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES, UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA, RENO



1. (a) The storage, possession or use of alcoholic bever-

ages is expressly permitted to persons of legal age

in their rooms only. No minor shall be present in

said room when alcoholic beverages are on the

premises or when such beverages are consumed, nor

may a minor consume any alcoholic beverage if the

adult resident of that room is absent.



The storage, possession and use of alcoholic bever-

ages is not permitted in other sections of the res-

idence hall.



(b) The storage, possession, or use of alcoholic bever-

ages in off-Campus University approved housing

shall be in conformity to all relevant civil codes

or statutes.



(c) The storage, possession, or use of alcoholic bever-

ages is not permitted on any University property

or in any University facility not specifically

designated in 1a above or not according to the

provisions of that section of the Reno Municipal

Code entitled "Drinking in a Public Place".



2. Students who violate 1a, 1b or 1c shall be subject to

appropriate action by law enforcement officials. The

student shall also be subject to suspension from the

University.



3. Students of legal drinking age who live in a sorority

or fraternity house (or members of that sorority or

fraternity) and who, because of the use of alcoholic

beverages in that living unit, create disturbances or

otherwise interfere with other students shall be liable

for University disciplinary action. The fraternity or

sorority of which he is a member shall be considered

for loss of status as "Approved University Housing"

and loss of official approval of its charter by the

University of Nevada.



4. Students not of legal drinking age who live in a sor-

ority or fraternity house (or members of that sorority

or fraternity) and who violate any section of the Mu-

nicipal Code or Nevada Revised Statutes (as either ap-

plies to storage, possession, or use of alcoholic bev-

erages) shall be subject to appropriate action by law

enforcement officials.



If a student is convicted of such violation, he or she

shall be subject to suspension from the University, and

the fraternity or sorority of which he is a member shall

be considered for loss of status as "Approved University

Housing" and loss of official approval of its charter by

the University of Nevada.



5. Any "Approved" student organization which, in conse-

quence of group action, violates 1a, 1b or 1c shall

lose its approved status for the remainder of the

semester in which the violation occurs and the follow-

ing semester. A second offense shall result in further

suspension or other appropriate action, and the offend-

ing members of legal drinking age shall be subject to

suspension. Those members not of legal drinking age

shall be subject to 2 above.



6. The Office of the President has the authority to desig-

nate the time and place for special events where alco-

holic beverages may be served on the University Campus.



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the May meeting, Pres-

ident Zorn requested the policy statement also be adopted

for UNLV. Upon the Board's instruction, this proposed pol-

icy was referred to the Attorney General for advice as to

its legality. Chancellor Humphrey reported that General

Dickerson had responded that "The University, of course,

can regulate the use of intoxicating liquors any place on

Campus ...". However, General Dickerson had asked that

his personal opinion against adoption of such a policy be

communicated to the Board of Regents.



Chancellor Humphrey submitted the following letter of recom-

mendation:



I recommend the adoption of the proposed alcoholic

beverage policy effective July 1, 1970, for a period

of one year and provided reasonable segregation of

persons 21 years of age and older can be secured in

the residence halls.



My reasons for recommending this policy for approval

are as follows:



I believe that the present policy is not being

enforced and is substantially unenforceable, re-

sulting in unequal treatment of students 21 years

of age or older living in "approved" housing, de-

pending on whether they live in a residence hall

or a fraternity or sorority house.



I believe that a variety of responsible people

have developed this policy proposal after consid-

erable study and their advice is understood to be

unanimous.



I believe that whenever and wherever possible,

adults should be treated as adults, and their

status as students should not alter that treatment.



My reasons for recommending the policy be effective

for a specific period of time are as follows:



I believe the administration of this proposed

policy will be quite difficult and I wish to

insure that it is adequately reviewed after the

experience of several months is known. As noted

above, the present policy is not being enforced

and is unenforceable. Perhaps it will be found

that this new policy suffers from the same prob-

lems and will need alteration or repeal.



This represents a substantial change in policy and

it would be desirable if all Faculty and Student

Senates were consulted as soon as feasible and

their views made known. These groups would bene-

fit from knowing the experience of a few months

of operation.



The rights of non-drinking adults and minors might

be subjugated (as occasionally happens in the "out-

side" community) and these people should have ade-

quate opportunity to be heard if they find the

experiment unsatisfactory.



Mr. Humphrey recalled that the Board had requested a report

on the percentage of residents in the Dormitories who were

21 years of age or over. Of the 206 residents of Tonopah

Hall, UNLV, 87 or 42% are 21 years of age or older. Of the

902 residents of UNR Dormitories, 81 or 9% are 21 years or

older.



Mr. Hug expressed opposition to the proposed policy, stat-

ing that he did not favor adopting a policy and then being

placed in the position of attempting to rescind it. Dr.

Anderson suggested that the Board would merely be trading

one unenforceable policy for another.



Miss Del Papa spoke in support of the proposed policy,

pointing out that when the Trial Judges live in Nye Hall

during the Summer, no effort is made to enforce the Univer-

sity's regulation concerning alcohol. She suggested that

if the present policy is to remain in effect, it should be

enforced for all residents.



Mr. Seeliger moved that action be tabled. Motion seconded

by Dr. White.



Mr. Myers suggested that action be taken separately to ap-

prove Paragraph 6 which would permit designation of spec-

ial occasions at which alcohol might be served.



Mr. Bilbray moved that Paragraph 6 of the proposed policy

be approved. Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen.



Mrs. Knudtsen asked if consideration had been given to es-

tablishing a location on Campus where liquor could be served

to students presenting an ID card. President Miller stated

that the Committee has considered a pub but had abandoned

the idea because of the many problems involved in such an

operation.



Chancellor Humphrey asked, for purposes of administrative

understanding, whether it was the Board's intention to di-

rect that the present policy be strictly enforced. Mr. Hug

stated that that would be his assumption and this was the

consensus.



Mr. Pine stated that he believed that Paragraph 6 should be

approved and that some kind of substitute policy be present-

ed. One should be developed in that the present policy

was not enforceable. He suggested that this matter needed

additional study. He also suggested that perhaps the Cam-

pus would be better off to allow a properly supervised com-

merical enterprise to locate near the Campus.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved that the motion be amended to provide

that the remainder of the policy be referred back to the

Administration for continuing study in anticipation that

a more acceptable proposal would be forthcoming. Amend-

ment was accepted and amended motion carried with Regents

White and Seeliger opposing.



38. Admissions Policy for Applicants with Criminal Records or

Psychiatric Problems



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in May the Board tabled

consideration of a recommendation to rescind Faculty Policy

Bulletin #69-8 to permit legal review by the Attorney Gen-

eral's Office. He stated that it is anticipated that this

matter will be rescheduled for the July meeting.



39. Graduate Teaching Fellows and Assistants



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in April the Board of

Regents requested the development of a budget for an ori-

entation program for Graduate Assistants and Fellows to be

held prior to the opening of the Fall, 1970 semester. In

May, the Board requested that a "determination for budget-

ing purposes be made of the feasibility of changing the

function of Graduate Assistants from one of teaching to

one of assisting the Professor in charge of the classroom."



Chancellor Humphrey reported that in response to these re-

quests, a report had been prepared by Mr. Don Jessup, Insti-

tutional Studies Officer, titled "A Possible Approach to

Change of Function of Graduate Teaching Fellows or Assist-

ants". (Report is on file in Chancellor's Office.)



Mr. Jessup briefly reviewed his report, touching on the

purpose of the document; that is (1) to analyze the current

practices in the use of Graduate Fellows for undergraduate

instruction at UNR and UNLV; and (2) to make recommendations

for improving conditions under which this instruction takes

place with the purpose of making the experience more mean-

ingful to both the Graduate Fellow and the undergraduate

students involved.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the study has indentified

some of the problem areas which deserve attention and rec-

ommended the report be referred to the Presidents for

their consideration with a request that they return to the

Board not later than August, 1970 with reports concerning

the use of Graduate Fellows and Assistants and the feasi-

bility of modifying their function.



He further recommended that $1500 be made available from the

Board of Regents Special Projects Fund to each of the three

Divisions, UNR, UNLV and DRI, to fund three-day orientation

sessions in September, 1970, prior to the start of the Fall

semester to be conducted by each Division in a manner to be

determined by the Division's Executive Officer.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



40. Advance Planning, UNLV Parking and Landscaping Project



President Zorn reported that the State Planning Board has

offered to advance plan the UNLV parking and landscaping

project and has asked for recommendations from which to

select an architect. He recommended that the State Planning

Board be requested to select either Daniel, Mann, Johnson

and Mendenhall or Zick and Sharp.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



41. Proposed Contract with Nevada Power Company



President Zorn requested approval of a ten-year contract

with Nevada Power Company for supplying of power to the UNLV

Campus. He noted that Business Manager Westfall estimates

that the special rate which this will enable UNLV to receive

will save $15,440 of the budgeted power charge of $157,000

for 1970-71.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the contract

subject to review by the Attorney General.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



42. Fee Waivers for CSUN Officers



President Zorn reported that the UNR precedent for provid-

ing in-state fee waivers for five ASUN Officers was referred

to the UNLV Scholarship Committee for consideration of sim-

ilar waivers for CSUN Officers. Action by this committee

was deferred until Fall, 1970. In the meantime, he stated,

the waivers available under the 3% quota established by

Board of Regents policy has been allocated by this commit-

tee. President Zorn requested that a one-year exception

to Board policy be made to permit five in-state fee waivers

in excess of the 3% quota, with the stipulation that in the

future these waivers must be within the 3%. The Officers

designated to receive the awards were President, two Vice

Presidents, Secretary and Treasurer.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that this procedure not be

approved. He pointed out that the Board of Regents may

direct the award of these waivers. Although the 3% has

been fully allocated for the Fall semester by the committee,

it is possible that the waivers be available by overawarding

during the first semester and under-awarding during the

second semster; thereby, balancing to 3% for the year.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the CSUN Officers as designated by

President Zorn be granted in-state fee waivers during

their terms in Office and that the waivers be provided from

the 3% quota authorized by Board of Regents policy.



43. Authorization to Purchase Without Competitive Bids



President Miller endorsed a request from Mackay School of

Mines that they be allowed to have multi-colored geological

maps printed by Williams and Heintz Map Corporation on a

continuing basis without competitive bidding. He recalled

that the School of Mines had received permission for one

year to contract for maps without bid and had reported that

the conditions remain the same; that is, that they feel that

Williams and Heintz is the only company which can provide

the kind of service they require.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended authorization be granted to

the Mackay School of Mines for an indefinite period to con-

tract with Williams and Heintz Map Corporation for printing

of multi-colored geological maps without competitive bids.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



44. Approval of Fund Transfers



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

transfers of funds:



#474 $4,500 from Contingency Reserve, UNR to Medical In-

surance Premiums to provide funds needed through

June 30, 1970.



#475 $5,000 from Contingency Reserve, UNR to Postage to

provide funds for balance of fiscal year.



#476 $6,000 from Contingency Reserve, UNR to President's

Office, Operating, to cover deficit balance and pro-

vide operating funds for balance of fiscal year.



#477 $4,400 from Contingency Reserve, UNR to Dean's Office,

Operating, Mackay School of Mines, to provide funds

for required annual assessment work on 51 unpatented

mining claims contained in the Lambertucci bequest.



#478 $6,000 from Contingency Reserve, UNR to Audio-Visual

to provide funds for operating expenses and equip-

ment for balance of fiscal year.



#480 $35,669.68 from Contingency Reserve, UNR to Buildings

and Grounds, to provide funds to purchase $22,000

Chemistry building furniture and $13,669.68 to pur-

chase automobiles.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the fund transfers be approved as

recommended.



The meeting adjourned at 5:50 P.M.
