4.  Student Fee Increases



Chairman Mc Bride announced that Regents had not been pre-

sented with backup material prior to the meeting on the

necessity for student fee increases, the recommended amount

of each increase, and statements as to how and where the

funds would be expended within the institutions, and that

since there were persons in attendance who had asked to

speak to the issue, he would allow discussion of the matter

at this time, with Board action to be taken at a special

meeting to be held on Monday, May 27, 1983, in Reno.



Mr. Mc Bride reminded Board members that the University of

Nevada System will now be able to retain, at the institu-

tional level, those monies generated through high enroll-

ments or increased student fees which are in excess of the

appropriations made by the State Legislature.  In the past,

these monies had to be reverted to the State General Fund.

Also, the Legislature had declared that if the Board felt

there was a need for those items in the Critical Needs

Budgets, that fees would have to be raised by the Board

inasmuch as there were not sufficient State funds during

this biennium.



Mr. Clarence Lee, CSUN President, stated that UNLV students

were not opposed to a fee increase, but they were concerned

about the distribution of those funds, and would like to be

a part of the decision making process and to be informed of

the need for the increase, with perhaps some consolidation

of programs.  He further suggested that fees be increased on

a gradual timetable, perhaps spread over several years.



ASUN President Bill Siegel declared that students should

not have to shoulder the burden by increasing their fees,

when, clearly, the State Legislature should have provided

the necessary funds.  He also indicated that whenever stu-

dent fees were increased, enrollments decreased and was

concerned about pricing students out of school.



ASCC President Ertis North indicated that the CCCC Adminis-

tration had been working with the students and keeping them

informed, and that they would give input to the Board at the

next meeting.



Former CSUN President Rich Oshinski stated that if the $5

increase is imposed, that will mean a $12 increase within

the past 4 years and that it was his feeling that improve-

ments in instruction have not been consistent with the in-

creases.  He urged a $1 or $2 increase be considered.



UNLV Faculty Senate Chairman Allen Mori stated that of those

faculty he had been able to poll, the majority favored a $5

increase for improving instruction and the institution.



Mr. Bill Cathey, UNR Faculty Senate Chair, agreed, stating

that by virtue of no faculty salary increases, the faculty

members were giving approximately $850-900 each to the in-

stitution per year, that students would have to share with

them the burden of improved instruction, and supported a

$5 increase.



President Crowley urged the Board to make a decision prior

to the end of June, and, though unfortunate, student fees

were being raised in many institutions across the country

because of lack of other sources of income for their in-

stitutions.



Mrs. Gallagher urged students to begin working with their

respective Administrations immediately and to bring to the

Board their decisions.



Ms. Del Papa requested that a summary of information and

comparative statistics be distributed to students and the

media in order that they might better understand the need

to raise fees.



Chancellor Bersi assured the Board that he would meet with

the Presidents and his staff and that background material

would be sent to Board members prior to the June 27 meet-

ing.



Mr. Klaich requested that the information include, by dollar

amounts, just how the increases would be expended, stating

that he felt it should all go toward instruction.



5.  Report on Kafoury-Armstrong Management Letter



Mr. Harry Miltenberger, Kafoury-Armstrong, reported on the

Kafoury-Armstrong Management Letter for the year ending

June 30, 1982, citing the major recommendations within the

letter.  He pointed out that the current UNS management sys-

tem is now obsolete having been first developed in 1963 for

for UNR and its then extension in Las Vegas.  Since that

time the Community Colleges, DRI and the Medical School have

been added, UNR has tripled in size and UNLV has developed

into its own Campus.  Mr. Miltenberger stated that financial

personnel, policy and procedures, and hard- and software

were essential to proceed with the MIS.  The discussion

then turned to the Board's policy statement making the

Management Information System (MIS) a priority for funding.



Funding for the MIS has been disucssed among the Presidents

and the Chancellor, with Chancellor Bersi indicated that

the Council of Presidents would again be discussing this

issue at their next meeting.



6.  Approval of the Resolution Regarding Interest Income



Chairman Mc Bride introduced the following resolution:



RESOLUTION #83-10



A RESOLUTION AMENDING RESOLUTION NO. 81-4, ADOPTED ON

JULY 21, 1981 TO PROVIDE FOR AN ADDITIONAL USE OF IN-

COME EARNED FROM THE INVESTMENT OF THE PROCEEDS OF

CERTAIN BONDS OF THE STATE ISSUED BY THE BOARD PURSU-

ANT TO SAID RESOLUTION NO. 81-4; PROVIDING FOR A TRANS-

FER OF CERTAIN PART OF SAID INVESTMENT INCOME INTO AN

ACCOUNT APPERTAINING TO THE PROJECT ACQUIRED WITH SAID

BONDS; AND PROVIDING THE EFFECTIVE DATE HEREOF.



WHEREAS, by Resolution #81-4 (the "8-1-81 Bond Resolu-

tion") adopted by the Board of Regents of the University

of Nevada (the "Board") on July 21, 1981, the Board au-

thorized the issuance of the "State of Nevada General

Obligation (Limited Tax) University System Projects

Bonds (Additionally Secured with Pledged Revenues,

Series 1981", in the aggregate principal amount of

$40,000,000 (the "Bonds"); and



WHEREAS, pursusant to Ch. 679 Statutes of Nevada, 1979

as amended by Ch. 585, Statutes of Nevada, 1981 (the

"Project Act"), the Board was authorized to issue the

Bonds pursuant to the State Securities Law, NRS 349.150

to 349.362, inclusive (the "Bond Act"); and



WHEREAS, subsection 4, ss. 349.304, Bond Act, provides

in part:



4.  Any gain from any such investments or reinvest-

ments of taxes, revenues or proceeds of bonds

may be credited to any ... fund or account

appertaining to a project or any facilities ...

subject to any contractual limitations in any

Proceeding appertaining to outstanding State

securities.



and



WHEREAS, the Board intends to create an account apper-

taining to the project financed with the Bonds (the

"Project") for the purpose of paying a portion of the

costs of operating and maintaining the Project (the

"Project Operation and Maintenance Fund"); and



WHEREAS, the Bond desires to credit surplus investment

income earned on the proceeds of the Bonds as provided

in subsection 4, ss. 349.304, Bond Act, to the Project

Operation and Maintenance Fund; and



WHEREAS, ss. 409, 8-8-81 Bond Resolution now in effect

requires that surplus monies derived from the proceeds

of the Bonds, including surplus investment income earned

thereon, be deposited into the Bond Fund, therein cre-

ated (the "Bond Fund"), and be applied to the payment

of the principal of, interest on and any prior redemp-

tion premiums due in connection with the Bonds (the

"Bond Requirements"); and



WHEREAS, ss. 604, 8-1-81 Bond Resolution requires that

sufficient Gross Pledged Revenues (as defined in the

8-1-81 Bond Resolution) be deposited into the Bond Fund

by July 31 of each Fiscal Year (as defined in the 8-1-81

Bond Resolution) to pay the Bond Requirements coming

due in that Fiscal Year, but permits the deposit into

the Bond Fund from Gross Pledged Revenues to be reduced

to the extent any other money accounted for in the Bond

Fund prior to such annual deposit therein is available

to pay the Bond Requirements in that Fiscal Year; and



WHEREAS, pursuant to ss. 604, 8-1-81 Bond Resolution to

the extent surplus investment income is transferred in-

to the Bond Fund, the required deposit of Gross Pledged

Revenues into the Bond Fund is reduced; thus, the de-

posit of surplus investment income into the Bond Fund

will not enhance the rights of the holders of the Bonds

or the security for the Bonds; and



WHEREAS, the Board hereby finds and determines that so

long as sufficient Gross Pledged Revenues are paid into

the Bond Fund by July 31 of each Fiscal Year to fully

pay the Bond Requirements due in that Fiscal Year, the

failure to deposit surplus investment income into the

Bond Fund will not in any manner prejudice the holders

of the Bonds or adversely affect the rights or risks of

the holders of the Bonds or the security for the Bonds;

and



WHEREAS, the Board hereby futher finds and determines

that an amendment to the 8-1-81 Bond Resolution to per-

mit transfer of surplus investment income into the

Project Operation and Maintenance Fund is not to the

prejudice of the holders of the Bonds or the Nevada

National Ban, as trustee (the "Trustee") so long as

such transfer can be made only after sufficient Gross

Pledged Revenues are deposited into the Bond Fund to

pay the Bond Requirements in any particular Fiscal Year;

and



WHEREAS, ss. 1311, 8-1-81 bond Resolution permits the

Board and the Trustee to amend the 8-1-81 Bond Resolu-

tion as may be required in connection with any change

which, in the judgement of the Trustee, is not to the

prejudice of the Trustee or the holders of the Bonds;

and



WHEREAS, the Board has received from the Project Engi-

neer (as defined in the 8-1-81 Bond Resolution) a

certificate to the effect that $2,100,000 of money in

the Construction Fund (as defined in the 8-1-81 Bond

Resolution) will not be necessary for the Project; and



WHEREAS, such $2,100,000 of surplus money in the Con-

struction Fund constitutes a part of the Investment

income earned on the proceeds of the Bonds deposited

into the Construction Fund.



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF REGENTS

OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA:



Section 1.  Definitions.  All capitalized terms used

Section 409.  Completion of Subprojects.  When each

Subproject shall have been completed in accordance

with the relevant plans and specifications, and when

all amounts due therefor, including, without limita-

tion, all proper incidental expenses, shall have

been paid, or for which full provision shall have

been made, the Trustee upon receipt of an order to

that effect from the University Treasurer, and upon

receipt by the University Treasurer from the Project

Engineer of a certificate so stating, and upon the

receipt thereby of an instrument of the Governing

Body so ordering, shall cause to be transferred all

surplus moneys remaining in the Construction Fund,

except for any moneys designated in the instrument

to be retained to pay any unpaid accrued costs or

contingent obligations and except any such surplus

money derived from investment income on the pro-

ceeds of the bonds and directed to be deposited

pursuant to Subsection C hereof into a special

account created in Subsection C hereof designated

as the "Project Operation and Maintenance Fund",

to the Bond Fund for the payment of the Bond Re-

quirements of the Outstanding 1981 bonds payable

from all or a part of the Gross Pledged Revenues,

pursuant to ss. 349.296, Bond Act, and ss. 349.304,

Bond Act, as provided in such instrument of the

Governing Body.  Upon such transfers of all moneys

out of that Construction Fund it shall be terminat-

ed.  Noting herein:



A.  Periodic Transfers.  Prevents the University

Treasurer from causing to be transferred from the

Construction Fund at any time prior to the termina-

tion of the Construction Fund any moneys which the

Project Engineer by certificate and the Governing

Body by its instrument determine will not be neces-

sary for either or both Subprojects, to the Bond

Fund, as permitted by ss. 349.296 as provided in

such instrument, or, to the extent such unneeded

monies are determined by the Governing Body to

constitute investment income on the proceeds of the

bonds on deposit in the Construction Fund, to the

Project Operation and Maintenance Fund but only at

the times and as otherwise provided in Subsection C

hereof, as permitted by ss. 349.304 as provided in

such instrument, or



B.  Limitations Upon Transfers.  Requires the trans-

fer to the Bond Fund of any surplus moneys (other

than bond proceeds) received as grants, appropria-

tions, or gifts the use of which moneys is limited

by the grantor or donor to the construction of

specifically designated capital improvements or

otherwise so that such surplus moneys (other than

bond proceeds) may not be properly transferred to

any such fund or account under the terms of such

grants, appropriations, or gifts, or



C.  Transfers to Project Operation and Maintenance

Fund.  Prevents the University Treasurer from caus-

ing to be transferred from the Construction Fund

prior to or at the time of termination of the Con-

struction Fund any monies which the Project Engineer

by certificate and the Governing Body by its instru-

ment determines will not be necessary for either or

both Subprojects to a special account appertaining

to the Project hereby created and designated as the

"Project Operation and Maintenance Fund", subject

to the following limitations:



(1)  Any monies transferred to the Project Operation

and Maintenance Fund from the Construction Fund

must have been derived from investment earnings

on the proceeds of the bonds accounted for in

the Construction Fund as determined by the

Governing Body;



(2)  Any such transfers may be made only on July 31

of any Fiscal Year and only if, at the time of

the transfer, sufficient monies have been

credited to the Bond Fund from Gross Pledged

Revenues to fully pay, when due, the Bond Re-

quirements coming due in that Fiscal Year; and



(3)  The Project Operation and Maintenance Fund and

all investment earnings on the amounts account-

ed for therein (which investment earnings, not-

withstanding the provisions of ss. 706 hereof,

shall remain in the Project Operation and Main-

tenance Fund) must be used to pay the operation

and maintenance expenses (as defined in ss.

349.188, Bond Act) of either or both Subproj-

ects and may be expended only as directed by

the Governing Body for such purpose, by war-

rant drawn and countersigned by the University

Treasurer, and if the Governing Body by its

instrument finds any amounts in the Project

Operation and Maintenance Fund are not needed

for that purpose, such amounts shall be trans-

ferred into the Bond Fund.



Section 3.  Transfer of Surplus.  The Board has found

and determined in the preambles hereto that $2,100,000

now accounted for in the Construction Fund is surplus

investment income earned on the proceeds of the Bonds

accounted for in the Construction Fund and has deter-

mined that and has received a certificate from the

Project Engineer stating that such $2,100,000 will not

be necessary for either or both Subprojects constitut-

ing the Project; accordingly, as permitted by ss. 409,

8-1-81 Bond Resolution, as amended by Section 2 hereof,

the University Treasurer and Trustee are directed to

transfer on July 31, 1983 $2,100,000 from the Construc-

tion Fund to the Project Operation and Maintenance Fund,

to be used only as provided in ss. 409C, 8-1-81 Bond

Resolution, as amended by Section 2 hereof; provided,

however, that such transfer shall be made if and only

if at the time thereof there is sufficient money in

the Bond Fund derived from Gross Pledged Revenues to

pay all Bond Requirements coming due during the Fiscal

Year ending July 1, 1984.



Section 4.  Effective Date.  This Resolution shall be-

come effective on the date the Trustee consents, pursu-

ant to ss. 1311 D, 8-1-81 Bond Resolution, to the amend-

ment made to the 8-1-81 Bond Resolution by Section 2

7.  Special Events Centers, UNR and UNLV



Vice Chancellor Dawson estimated that approximately $2.1

million in interest income has been generated in excess of

the amount needed to fund construction of the UNR and UNLV

Special Events Centers.  He proposed the following plan for

the use of these funds;



1)  $314,000 to UNR for equipment purchases.  (In May, 1983,

the Board approved $314,000 to UNLV for remodeling of

their facility.)



2)  The unused portion of the fund balance would be invested

in order to provide operating support for as long as

possible.  Two accounts would then be set up with 54%

to go to UNLV and 46% to go to UNR.  There would be no

money available until August 1, 1983.  Presidents

Goodall and Crowley were instructed to submit to the

Board for approval, a plan for the use of these funds

prior to any expenditures being made.

view.  See Ref. G, filed with the permanent minutes.

10.  Approval of the Proposal for a Joint Council on College

Preparation



The State Board of Education has proposed the establishment

of a Joint Council on College Preparation, to be sponsored

by both the Board of Regents and the State Board of Educa-

tion, which would advise those Boards, school districts and

students regarding the skills and competencies Nevada young

people need to improve their likelihood of success in Uni-

versity studies.  This Council would identify both general

and specific competencies and how they may be acquired

through careful selection of academic courses in high

school.



The State Board of Education approved this Council at their

meeting on April 15, 1983.



Mrs. Kenney moved approval to accept this proposal for a

Joint Council on College Preparation.  Mrs. Gallagher

seconded.  Motion carried.



Vice Chancellor Fox stated that the College preparation

skills would be applied towards the basic skills for enter-

ing College, not for specific interest areas such as engi-

neering, pre-med, etc.



Chairman Mc Bride stated that specific interest area skills

may be developed in the future, but at this time the System

needs to establish admission standards.  He requested the

Administration and Faculty Senates develop a mechanism for

improving or raising admissions standards, recommendation

for those standards, and whether they would have selective

courses.



President Crowley suggested that the State Budget Office and

the money committees of the Legislature aid with the funding

for this Council.



Chairman Mc Bride recessed the meeting until 8:30 A.M., Friday,

June 17, 1983.



The Board reconvened at 9:05 A.M.

13.  Adoption of the 1983-84 Estimative Budgets



Mr. Ron Sparks, Budget Director, presented the Estimative

Budgets for 1983-84.

and included in estimative budgets and subject to ap-

proval by the Board.



2)  It is recommended that semi-annually transfer reports

be submitted to the Board detailing transfer activities

and that augmentations to estimative budgets be included

in this policy.  This would leave Presidents with the

authority to make transfers and budget augmentations

and to report those activities to the Board on a semi-

annual basis.

and approve the amended policy.  Mrs. Gallagher seconded.
