Mrs. Sparks moved approval of an emergency item to

Preservation and Archeology and the UNS Board of

Regents/University of Nevada Press. Dr. Eardley

seconded. Motion carried.

vide $9000 to the University of Nevada Press for

Hadley. The money will be earmarked for a special

account and applied against manufacturing costs should

the Editorial Board endorse the project. If the Edi-

torial Board fails to endorse the project, or if the

manuscript never materializes, the money would be

Dr. Eardley moved approval to include item 9 on the Consent

Agenda. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich moved adoption of the Consent Agenda and approval

of the prepared agenda with the authority to change the

order of items as specified throughout the meeting. Dr.

Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



3. Approved Resolution, Sale of Bonds, Student Housing, UNR



Approved a $10 million bond sale for student housing at UNR.

At its May 1991 meeting, the Board authorized UNS Bond

Counsel to arrange the sale. Chancellor Dawson introduced

Mr. Paul Howarth, Howarth and Associates, and Mr. John

Swendseid, UNS Bond Counsel, who reported on the bond sale.

Mr. Howarth provided the Board of Regents with a list of

the top four bids with Dean Whitter Reynolds indicating

the best interest rate at 6.967%. (Resolution #91-10).



Mr. Klaich moved approval of awarding the $10 million bond

sale for student housing at UNR to Dean Whitter Reynolds.

Mrs. Sparks seconded.



Mr. Klaich requested a summation of the City of Reno's

Counsel meeting which addressed student housing at UNR.

Several neighborhood representatives were in attendance

at the Counsel meeting. President Crowley stated that the

City Counsel approved the construction of new student

housing at UNR with a condition that UNR is to construct

a parking structure with 1250 parking spaces. This would

require UNR to seek appropriations from the 1993 Legis-

lature. President Crowley stated that parking fees would

have to be increased up to three times what they are at

the present time. If UNR should wait until the 1993

Legislature convenes to request appropriations, the con-

struction project would have to be redesigned to meet the

budget. At this time, the construction budget is very

close to meeting its budgeted allocation, and with infla-

tion during the next two years UNR would be unable to

construct the housing with its present budget.



The action by the City Counsel has had a devastating im-

pact on UNR's retention and student recruitment efforts.

The construction plans for student housing calls for a

216-bed facility; however, the City Counsel is asking for

an additional 1250 parking spaces. President Crowley stated

that he will discuss this issue with UNS General Counsel

and UNR's Vice Presidents. President Crowley will approach

the City Counsel for reconsideration.



Mrs. Whitley entered the meeting.



Upon questioning, President Crowley indicated that the

proposed student housing facility will be built on an

existing parking lot which contains 108 parking spaces.



Mr. Klaich stated that the action taken by the City Counsel

is very discouraging.



President Crowley stated that accusations have been made

toward UNR in that UNR has not provided any relief to the

parking problem in the neighborhoods surrounding the Campus.

These accusations are not true, according to President

Crowley. He stated that if students choose to live in the

residence hall, parking would be limited to 1 space per 3

residents; however, the commuter ratio is 1:1. It is UNR's

objective to house 25% of the student population on the

UNR Campus.



President Crowley stated he felt that the discussion at

the City Counsel's meeting was symbolic for the neighbor-

hood residents who are not happy with UNR's parking sit-

uation.



Mr. Klaich questioned if UNS sells the bonds and receives

proceeds, but are then turned down and cannot proceed

forward with the housing project, could the bonds be

recalled, and Mr. Swendseid answered in the affirmative.



Mr. Klaich questioned if the bonds are sold but the City

Counsel's conditions are not met, could it be challenged

in a court of law, and General Counsel Klaisic answered

by stating that UNR could challenge the reasonableness of

the action by the City Counsel or UNR could challenge

whether a state agency is required to comply with local

zoning requirements when the Legislature has approved

the project.



Mr. Klaich stated that the City Counsel staff did not

recommend conditions, however these were added by the

Counsel during the meeting.



Motion carried.



4. Approved Emeritus Status, UNLV, UNR and UNS



Approved Emerita/Emeritus status for the following:



A. University of Nevada, Las Vegas



Alice Mason, Emerita Associate Professor of Physical

Education, effective July 1, 1991



B. University of Nevada, Reno



Jim Jeffers, Jr., Emeritus Director of Real Estate,

Business Center North



Robert D. Jeffers, Emeritus Director of Employee

Relations and Benefits, Business Center North



Condido S. Vaia, Emeritus Manager, The College Inn



C. University of Nevada System



Warren H. Fox, Emeritus Vice Chancellor of Academic

Affairs



Mr. Klaich moved approval of Emerita/Emeritus status at

UNLV, UNR and UNS. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.



Dr. Eardley felt that the awarding of Emeritus was to be

bestowed upon those professional employees who were retiring

from the University of Nevada System. He noted that Vice

Chairman Fox was leaving UNS to accept another position in

California. President Crowley stated that the awarding of

Emeritus has changed over the years and no longer follows

the retirement criteria. President Maxson stated that

Emeritus is now being awarded to those professional employ-

ees who have served UNS for a number of years and have been

dedicated employees.



5. Approved Tenure, UNR



Approved the award of tenure to James Gentry as Professor

of Journalism at UNR, effective July 1, 1991.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of award of tenure to James

Gentry as Professor of Journalism at UNR, effective July 1,

1991. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.



The open meeting recessed at 1:30 P.M. to move into committee

meetings.



Dr. Derby gave an update report on the ad hoc Committee of the

Status of Women by stating that a request has been made of the

Campus Advisory Committees to submit data regarding the EE06

reporting form. The information derived from this data will

enable the Committee to review the profile and changes during

the last two years. The Committee will make a formal report

to the Board of Regents at its October meeting.



The open meeting reconvened at 11:30 A.M. Thursday, June 27,

1991 with all Regents present.

tween the 1991-92 and 1990-91 in state appropriations is

16.5%, and other revenue sources is 21.7%, indicating the

total revenue difference being $35,366,298.



Chancellor Dawson stated that the actual amount for the

operating budget has not been approved at this time and

he requested authorization to continue expenditures at

the rate of the current fiscal year.



Mrs. Whitley moved approval to authorize the continuation

of expenditures at the rate of Fiscal Year 1990-91 until

the September Board of Regents meeting. Mrs. Sparks

the State Legislature and the superlative job in supporting

higher education.

12. Regents' Workshop



The Board met in workshop session in the Grand Hall, Richard

Tam Alumni Center, University of Nevada, Las Vegas.



Report of Knight Commission - President Maxson reported that

the "Keeping Faith with the Student-Athlete", sponsored by

the Knight Foundation and chaired by Dr. William C. Friday

and Father Theodore M. Hesburgh was completed in March,

1991. The Committee has proposed a new structure of reform,

which has four parts: Presidential control, academic in-

tegrity, financial integrity, and independent certification.



Dr. Hammargren entered the meeting.



President Maxson summarized the Committee's recommendations

as follows:



A. Governing Boards should cede total authority over sports

programs to College Presidents, and Presidents should

control NCAA decision making.



B. Presidents should insure that their sports programs

comply with federal statutes barring sex discrimination.



C. The NCAA should require incoming Freshman athletes to

complete 15 high school core subjects successfully,

instead of the current 11.



D. The academic performance of athletes should be revised

each semester, and athletes should be declared ineli-

gible if they are not making progress toward a specific

degree.



E. Each College should require athletes in all sports to

graduate at the same rate as other students.



F. Scholarships for athletes should last for five years,

and grants for needy athletes should cover the full

cost of attending College.



G. All athletics revenues, including booster-club gifts

and coaches' outside income, should be channeled into

the University's financial system.



H. Coaches should be offered long-term contracts.



I. The NCAA should establish a mandatory system to certify

its members' success in attaining academic and finan-

cial integrity.



J. Each College should conduct an annual academic and

financial audit of its sports programs, and results

of the audits should be made public.



Report on NCAA Reform Agenda - President Crowley reported

that the 1991 Convention addressed the issue whereby in-

stitutional Presidents would accept responsibility of the

athletic programs and their relationships with NCAA. Pres-

ident Crowley summarized a few of the convention's agenda

topics, as follows:



A. Graduation reporting to be at the same level for entire

student population. This may require an additional em-

ployee to compile such reports.



B. Reduction of time demands in all sports to 20 hours per

week of playing and practice during the traditional

season with one full-day free, and 8 hours per week

during the nontraditional season with three full-days

free.



C. Reduction of coaches in all sports, along with reduc-

tion of grants-in-aid by 10% in all sports, and re-

duction in recruiting activities, such as telephone

calls, evaluations and contacts, number of visits to

the schools, and brochures.



D. Membership criteria be established in order to

strengthen schedules, set sports sponsorship crite-

ria, and minimize financial aid requirements.



President Crowley stated that the 1992 Convention will

address the following issues;



A. Strengthening initial academic eligibility requirements.



B. Continuing requirements for athletic eligibility.



C. Transferring from Community College and Junior Colleges

will require one year of sitting out of the sport.



D. Discussion on the Certification Report. The Certifica-

tion Report is a pilot program consisting of 40 insti-

tutions on a volunteer basis (both Nevada Universities

volunteered) and will undergo the process this coming

year.



E. Discussion on NCAA legislation procedures. At the

present, detailed items come before the Legislature, a

committee interprets the legislation, and looks at

reform on legislation. The convention will deal with

broad refinements to these procedures.



Intercollegiate Athletics Programs



A. President Crowley introduced UNR Athletic Director Chris

Ault. Mr. Ault reported that the athletic budget has

increased dramatically over the years; six years ago

the athletic budget was approximately $2.6 million, and

is now $4.2 million. There are 16 intercollegiate

sports consisting of 8 men's sports, 7 women's sports,

and 1 coed sport. There are 240 athletes with 210

athletes requiring financial aid. In 1984, Title IX

visited UNR and required compliance within one year,

and Mr. Ault stated that UNR did meet their require-

ments within the one year.



Mr. Ault reported on several academic successes which

UNR athletes have met, with the latest statistics

indicating that during the May 1991 commencement

exercises 66 athletes graduated with a Bachelor's

degree, 5 athletes graduated with a Master's degree,

and 1 athlete graduated with a Doctorate degree. UNR

is the number one school in graduation rates within

the Big Sky Conference.



Mr. Ault reported that it takes the average student to

complete College 5.7 years. Prior to 1977, student

athletes were returning to their homes and completing

their 5th year. Since then the Alumni Football Asso-

ciation has raised funds for scholarships to be given

to students who would be graduating within one year.



He stated that the athletic coaches at UNR are excel-

lent. The men's program is number one within the

league.



He explained the possible reorganization if UNR would

be accepted into the Big West Conference which is a

Division 1A. All sports at UNR are Division 1A, ex-

cept football. One of the criteria to enter into

this division is to expand the football stadium. Mr.

Ault explained that $3 million has been raised from

private donors for this expansion to 30,000 seating

capacity.



Chairman Gallagher relinquished gavel to Vice Chairman Sparks.



Mr. Klaich congratulated Mr. Ault and his program. The

recruiting tool involving high school students visting

the Campus is an excellent approach.



Dr. Eardley questioned the benefits of an athletic

program to a University, and Mr. Ault indicated that

the UNR athletic program generates over $12 million

which is returned to the community and $1 million

returned to the University; i. e., salaries, tuition,

fees.



Chairman Gallagher returned and resumed the gavel.



B. President Maxson introduced UNLV Athletic Director

Dennis Finfrock. Mr. Finfrock reported that since he

was appointed Interim Athletic Director 10 months ago,

there has been a massive reform and introspection. When

he appeared before the Board upon accepting this posi-

tion, he relayed some goals to the Board. Mr. Finfrock

indicated that most of those goals have been reached

and he felt that these changes are for the greater good

of the University. It has taken courage to find solu-

tions to these problems and it could not have been

achieved without the support of the Regents, President

Maxson and staff.



In response to the Attorney General's 12 recommenda-

tions for the UNLV Athletic Department, Mr. Finfrock

indicated that each one of the recommendations has

either been implemented or is in the process of im-

plementation.



Mr. Finfrock stated that there has been much frustra-

tion in speaking to the public, whereas he could not

speak to the issues of personnel, the Attorney Gen-

eral's investigation, nor the NCAA investigation.

Therefore, he concentrated on the positive aspects of

the UNLV athletic program which consists of 350 student

athletes, 14 sports, and several excellent coaches.



In regard to academic accomplishments, UNLV has attempt-

ed to provide a quality education experience for student

athletes. To demonstrate the emphasis on student ath-

letes, UNLV has employed 8 academic advisors and there

are over 90 student athletes who belong to the 3.0 club.



Mr. Finfrock highlighted individual, team and coaches

accomplishments, such as the first undefeated regular

basketball season (34-0) and three basketball players

being drafted to the NBA. There are 6 teams nationally

ranked within the top 20, with the men's overall program

ranking 22nd and the women's overall program ranking

close to the top 30, according to USA Today. Mr.

Finfrock mentioned several honors which various coaches

have received during the past year.



In the past, Mr. Finfrock stated that UNLV's Athletic

Department operated under the "Crisis Management"; how-

ever, for the future it will be operated under the "Long

Range Planning and Visionary Leadership" approach. He

stated, "I know that our future can't be just an exten-

sion of our past." He relayed stories regarding the

Thomas and Mack Events Center and the Sam Boyd Silver

Bowl.



In order to achieve athletic success, it will be very

expensive. Therefore, there must be more creative and

innovative fund raising for scholarships and endow-

ments.



The academic progress emphasized by President Maxson

over the last 7 years has allowed the Athletic Depart-

ment to attract the top quality student athlete and it

is Mr. Finfrock's goal to elevate athletics to a higher

standard of achievement in the academic programs.



Mrs. Berkley entered the meeting.



Mr. Finfrock stated that he supported the Knight Com-

mission and the President's Commission regarding the

reform agenda of the NCAA. It is hoped that UNLV can

demonstrate fiscal integrity, academic integrity, and

graduate 100% of the student athletes. In addition,

since 80% of the athletic budget is on soft money,

it is Mr. Finfrock's desire to achieve a more balanced

budget with a commitment from the State of Nevada.



Mr. Finfrock acknowledged Mr. Chris Ault for a fine

job with UNR's football team and stated that he wel-

comed UNR into the Big West Conference, if so chosen.



He stated that the NCAA investigation is still uncer-

tain, but no matter what happens, UNLV will survive

and will continue to strive for excellence.



In closing, Mr. Finfrock quoted Norman Schwarzkopt by

stating:



"In times of stress, you turn to the good Lord,

and to your family, and more than anything else

you call on that same inner strength that kept

you going in a lot of other adverse times. It's

not easy. But then you realize THAT'S that you've

been trained for your entire life."



These are the "worst of times", but also the "best of

times" for UNLV and he is certain that it will all be

pulled together for the best for UNLV.



Mr. Klaich requested UNLV to respond to the Attorney Gen-

eral's report and recommendations. He stated that it is

the responsibility of the Athletic Director to manage funds

appropriately and encouraged Mr. Finfrock to seek funding

from the Legislature by proceeding through the normal budget

process.



Dr. Eardley requested that the members of the Board of

Regents be kept informed on the Big West Conference issue

for UNR.



President Maxson expressed his sincere hope that President

Crowley will consider participation in the Big West Con-

ference.



President Crowley updated the Board on the actions by the

Commission Office in reviewing UNR as a potential Big West

Conference school. The Committee from Big West Conference

will meet with UNR on July 8. The University has spoken

to the faculty and community regarding this possible change

but it will be UNR's final decision to accept the invita-

tion. He requested that the Board of Regents review this

proposal and give it considerable consideration. This may

require a special teleconference meeting of the Board.



Dr. Hammargren indicated that he has received an article

regarding national overall graduation rates and highlighted

some of the statistics.



Mr. Foley stated that he was greatly concerned with Richard

Perry "The Fixer", in that he felt that Mr. Perry has not

paid his debt to society. He stated that, "As a Board, we

should not sit idly by and permit him to corrupt our stu-

dent athletes." He requested General Counsel Klasic to

research and advise the Board on what legal actions UNS can

take to restrain Mr. Perry and make it less attractive for

this man to operate in the community.



Chairman Gallagher thanked everyone for a very productive

workshop session.



Mrs. Berkley stated that she objected to the UNS General

Counsel investigating Mr. Perry because it is not within

the Board's jurisdiction. Mr. Klaich agreed and felt that

President Maxson and Mr. Finfrock should handle that in-

cident.



Chairman Gallagher requested that General Counsel Klasic

refrain from any action, unless he sees any value to Mr.

Foley's request. If so, General Counsel Klasic may take up

the issue with Regent Foley.



The open meeting recessed at 10:20 A.M. to move into the CCSN

Foundation meeting. The regular meeting reconvened at 10:22

A.M. Friday, June 28, 1991 with all Regents present except

Regents Berkley, Foley and Whitley.



13. Information Only: Nevada Higher Education Projects for

Math and Science



In 1989, Congress enacted the Dwight D. Eisenhower Mathe-

matics and Science Education Act to provide assistance to

the states to improve the quality of mathematics and science

teaching and instruction in the U. S. The Chancellor's

Office coordinates grants to institutions of higher educa-

tion in Nevada to improve skills of teachers in mathematics

and science and to increase the access of all students

(K-12) to these subjects. Vice Chancellor Warren Fox and

Karen Steinberg, co-coordinators of the statewide higher

education component of the Dwight D. Eisenhower program,

provided information about the program in Nevada, discussed

selected projects funded under this program, and distributed

a report entitled, "State of Nevada Higher Education Proj-

ects for Mathematics and Science", which is filed in the

Regents' Office.



Mrs. Steinberg stated that in 1989-90, which was the first

year, awards totaled $150,891 and were granted to 9 proj-

ects. In 1990-91, the second year, $134,000 was awarded for

for 10 projects. In addition to these awards, over the

four years of funding under the Education for Economic

Security Act, Nevada higher education received $461,338 in

federal dollars and funded 23 difference projects to im-

prove mathematics and science teaching and instruction.

These projects are described in a separate publication,

filed in the Regents' Office.



Through these two federally funded programs teachers and

students have been served in all areas of the State, with

special emphasis placed on programs for rural teachers

and students who have far less access to programs than

their urban counterparts. Each year UNS has received more

reponses to the request for proposals than UNS can fund

with available resources. The enthusiastic response of

project directors and project participants to opportunities

that would not otherwise exist indicates confidence in the

value of these projects to Nevada teachers and students.



Mrs. Berkley and Mr. Foley entered the meeting. Dr. Hammargren

left the meeting.



Mrs. Steinberg introduced Dr. Linda Zech, Instructional and

Curricular Studies at UNLV, who highlighted her projects and

stated that changes in teaching mathematics in today's

society requires using real world problems.



Dr. Dale Andersen, Dean of the College of Education at UNLV,

highlighted the Southern Nevada Young Scientists' Camp which

was held during the 1990 and 1991 Summers at UNLV. The

project is designed for underrepresented (minority and fe-

male) middle school students in the four Southern Nevada

counties. He stated that a follow-up study will be compiled

of four consecutive Summer Camps.



Dr. Hammargren returned to the meeting.



14. Approved Tuition and Fees Increases



Approved a tuition and fees increase for the academic

years 1991-92 as developed in accordance with Board policy,

as contained in Ref. B, filed with the permanent minutes.



These increases will be reflected in a Handbook change,

Title 4, Chapter 17, Sections 4 and 10.



Section 4. Tuition



2. Except for UN medical students who are charged a dif-

ferent tuition, students qualifying under the Good

Neighbor Tuition Policy and children of University

alumni, tuition shall be $1800 per semester for all

University students and $1500 per semester for all

Community College students who have not been classi-

fied as in-state students.

Mr. Klaich moved approval of the tuition and fees increase

for the academic years 1991-92. Dr. Eardley seconded.



Mr. Klaich questioned whether this proposed tuition and fees

increase was a good even-leveled fee increase. He noted

that from 1980 to 1990 the fees were increased from $24 to

$40 which is approximately 66% increase, and from 1988-90

the fees were increased from $40 to $49 which is approxi-

mately a 25% increase. He did not feel that the establish-

ed policy for increasing fees was working as it should for

UNS. He had hoped for lower increases. He stated he felt

the Board of Regents has abdicated authority on fee in-

creases.



Mr. Foley agreed with Mr. Klaich and stated that the Chan-

cellor had assured the Regents that fee increases would not

be based on WICHE standards. Dr. Derby was also in agree-

ment.



Mr. Klaich clarified that he would vote for the tuition and

fees increase because the budget, which now is before the

Legislature, includes these increases.



Chairman Gallagher stated that this increase has gone before

the Legislature and that the Chancellor's staff has followed

the policy established by the Board of Regents in regard to

tuition and fees increases. She suggested that possibly the

new Chairman may want to address this issue.



Mrs. Sparks indicated that this policy has not relinquished

the Board's reponsibility for fees. The Board of Regents

still has the authority to accept or reject the proposed

increase. Chairman Gallagher advised that if the Board of

Regents felt it necessary to change the policy, they should

do so in the near future.



President Crowley stated that it was the Board's responsi-

bility and authority to increase tuition and fees. He had

understood the policy to direct the Chancellor's staff to

work with students. The policy implied that there would

be a significant increase for the first year. He felt that

the policy should be re-examined. The Board's philosophy

and assumptions should be the driving factor in establish-

ing tuition and fees increases. Mr. Foley requested a

workshop session be scheduled to discuss tuition and fees

increase.



ASUN President Derek Beenfelt stated that the increases

were written into the budget without student input and he

understood that WICHE standards would not be used in

compiling these figures, but that the needs of the schools

would be a major factor.



Mr. Klaich asked whether there would be a fee increase for

1992-93 built into the UNS budget and that if approved by

the Legislature, the fee would remain the same as 1991-92

at $49. This was clarified following the meeting by Vice

Chancellor Sparks who indicated that the budget approved

by the Regents and the Legislature has an increase built in

for FY 93: University - from $49 to $51 per credit; Commu-

nity Colleges - from $26 to $27 per credit; Graduate Fees

- from $66 to $73 per credit; and Non-Resident fees - from

$1800 to $1950 per semester.



Chancellor Dawson apologized to the Board of Regents stating

he understood the policy to include WICHE standards and

other indicators in any proposed tuition and fees increases.

Mr. Klaich stated that he understood the policy for setting

increases, but is questioning the implications for future

use. He would like this issue discussed to see if it is

the right policy for UNS.



Dr. Eardley requested the Presidents to be aware of this

increase and how it will affect their Campuses in relation

to the percentage of student fees to the total budget.

President Crowley felt that the proportion of student fees

has declined rather than increased.



Motion carried. Mr. Foley opposed.



15. Approved Handbook Additions, Presidential Leave and

Presidential Transition



A. Approved a Handbook addition regarding Presidential

Leave as contained in Ref. D, filed in the Regents'

Office.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the Handbook addition

regarding Presidential Leave. Mr. Klaich seconded.



President Crowley reported that during the last Board

of Regents' Workshop he made a report to the Board on

Presidential Leave and Transition. It was the spirit

at that time to design a policy that addresses these

issues.



Mr. Klaich questioned the language in regard to the

Presidents being "expected to" take leave after six

years of service. President Crowley stated that the

Committee had a very difficult time in developing this

language and whether it would be mandatory or volun-

tary leave. The Committee finally compromised with

"expected to".



Chairman Gallagher stated that the Board of Regents

and others expect a lot from its Presidents who main-

tain horrendous schedules, which can sooner or later

cause "burn out" if not careful. Some people who

need the leave the most, often do not realize that

they are in need.



President Maxson suggested that the language be changed

from "expected to" to "may".



Motion carried. Mrs. Sparks abstained.



B. Approved a Handbook addition regarding Presidential

Transition as contained in Ref. D, filed in the Regents'

Office.



President Crowley explained that Presidential Transi-

tion is a nationwide concern and that the main objective

of this policy is to allow the Board of Regents and

Presidents to have the matter resolved before it is

actually needed. He stated that the language of the

proposed policy was mainly derived from the California

State University policy.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the Handbook addition

regarding Presidential Transition. Mrs. Berkley second-

ed.



Discussion was held on the following concerns expressed

by the Board of Regents:



Presidents who are eligible for retirement and who

choose to retire from UNS after serving as President

for a period of at least five years are entitled to

a leave of absence for a period to be determined at

the time this choice is made.



The possibility of six Presidents on a Regents'

professorship at one time. Would the Board of Re-

gents be paying for each of the salaries? Could

the salary come from the institution?



The possibility of a President remaining on Campus

and not performing to standard and thereby being

of little value to the institution. Should the

Board of Regents pay his salary?



Would the payment to the retired President be a

high salary rate?



Should length of service prior to retirement be

five or ten years? If ten years, it would coincide

with the emeritus status policy.



If President retires as a tenured professor, would

the President then receive double benefits if he

also receives the Regents' Professorship?



Dr. Eardley stated that the Regents' Professorship is

a recognition of service and felt this is a way the

Board of Regents can reward a President after he leaves.

If the salary were to be paid by the institution, it

would lose its title and importance.



President Crowley stated that an annual report would be

required by the Board of Regents from the Regents' Pro-

fessor and the policy would contain a provision that

they could discontinue the professorship at any time.



Mr. Klaich suggested that the language be amended in

II.1 by changing the service time for Presidents from

five years to ten years prior to taking a leave of

absence.



Mr. Klaich moved to amend the language in Ref. D, II.1

by changing the service time from five years to ten

years prior to taking a leave of absence, and II.6 by

adding language to read "To the extent practicable,

and where not inconsistent with assigned teaching

duties at the institution...". Dr. Derby seconded.



President Crowley expressed his concern in that there

are very few Presidents in the country that serve ten

years at one institution. He felt that the policy is

not about present individuals who are serving as

Presidents. Dr. Derby questioned whether the purpose

of the policy is for each current President. President

Crowley stated that the intent of the policy is to have

it in place prior to a presidential transition within

UNS, and that if a President serves a number of years

he should be rewarded.



President Calabro stated that if a President is not

successful as a President, then the President would not

be rewarded. President Calabro stated that he under-

stood the intent of the policy is to reward a productive

and accountable President. He opposes rewarding an un-

productive employee.



Discussion was held comparing tenure of faculty with

tenure of Presidents. The faculty receive tenure after

7 years and suggested that the years of service for

Presidents be equivalent to faculty service years.



President Meacham suggested that the language "in good

standing" be added to II.1. President Crowley caution-

ed the Regents in adopting this language, stating that

a problem could arise if the President had performed

admirably for years, but should not be performing "in

good standing" at the end of his Presidency.



General Counsel Klasic stated that he had a problem

with comparing tenure of Presidents with tenure of

faculty. He stated that former President Leonard

Goodall was tenured and he returned to faculty status.

He pointed out UNLV gave Dr. Goodall leave to prepare

for teaching again and General Counsel Klasic stated

that maybe a policy should be formalized to insure

such a transition period. He questioned, however,

whether the Regents should be responsible for paying

the costs of tenure as that was an institutional

responsibility.



Chairman Gallagher suggested that this issue be sent

back to the Board of Regents and the Presidents for

further discussion, and indicated that the concept of

the policy is acceptable, but the policy needs more

streamlining.



President Taranik suggested that the funding for the

Regents' Professorship be allocated from Regents'

funds during the biennium, and then the institution

would work this funding into its own budget for the

next biennium.



Mr. Klaich stated that he was in favor of this policy,

but thought that tenure between Presidents and faculty

should be distinct. The Board of Regents should want

to treat the retired President with dignity.



President Crowley stated that there are two fundamental

issues: 1) how long should a President serve? and

2) who will bear the cost of the professorship?



President Maxson mentioned that many Presidents retire

at a young age. He did not feel that UNS should be

obligated to support the retired President for the rest

of his life. He felt that the institution should pay

the salary of the retired President, but that the Board

of Regents should pay the salary of a retired Chancel-

lor. In his opinion, the language should remain at

five years of service.



Dr. Hammargren suggested that the language be amended

to seven years of service.



Mr. Klaich asked to divide the amendment to the orig-

inal motion, as follows:



Mr. Klaich moved to amend the language in Ref. D,

II.1 by changing the service time for Presidents

from five years to ten years prior to taking a

leave of absence. Dr. Derby seconded. Regents

Berkley and Hammargren opposed. Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich moved to amend the language in Ref. D,

II.6 by adding language to read "To the extent

practicable, and where not inconsistent with

assigned teaching duties at the institution...".

Dr. Derby seconded. Motion carried.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook addition

regarding Presidential Transition, as amended. Dr.

Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



16. Approved Handbook Change, Intellectual Property Policy



Chancellor Dawson requests approval of a Handbook change,

Title 4, Chapter 12, Intellectual Property Policy, as

contained in Ref. F, filed in the Regents' Office.



In February, 1990 the Board approved amendments to the

UNS Intellectual Property Policy Related to Patents, with

a request for further revisions related to copyright policy.

Title 4, Chapter 12, and specifically the section called,

"Copyrightable Works", has subsequently been revised to

better represent the needs of the institutions. It largely

consists of provisions taken from MIT and Stanford Univer-

sity copyright policies which Regent Foley sent to the

Chancellor's Office for its assistance in reviewing this

matter. This revision was sent to the Presidents and

Faculty Senates of the UNS for review and comment.



Section 3 of the revised policy was taken from the MIT

policy. With respect to the copyright policy contained in

Section 5 of the attached proposed amendments, paragraph

1 combines language from the Stanford and MIT policies, and

paragraphs 2-3 and 5-8 are from the Stanford policy. Para-

graph 4 of Section 5 is taken from the previously recom-

mended UNS copyright policy. It was used in place of the

language of the Stanford policy as being less intrusive

and more flexible with respect to the ability of the

author/creator to retain rights in the copyrightable work.



Various other changes in Title 4, Chapter 12 are also re-

flected in the attached proposed amendments. A number of

these changes incorporate suggestions made by the UNR

Faculty Senate and a faculty member at TMCC. Their purpose

is to clarify or make consistent existing language in the

policy.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

the Intellectual Property Policy for UNS. Mrs. Sparks

seconded. Motion carried.



17. Information Only: Facilities Planning Status Report



Chancellor Dawson and the institution Presidents presented

a status report on the facilities planning for UNS and

the Campuses. Chancellor Dawson introduced Mr. Robert

Ferrari, Director of State Public Works Board, who was in

attendance.



Chancellor Dawson informed the Board that UNS had requested

a new position in the Chancellor's Office for a facilities

planner, and was denied funding by the Legislature.



He reported that a Chancellor's committee has been estab-

lished which addresses the capital construction formula.

Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks chairs the committee of repre-

sentatives from the institutions. The Chancellor's Office

held a workshop on June 13-14, and Dr. Bruce Jensen, con-

sultant, made an excellent presentation.



The consultant's report on Physical Master Planning in-

cluded recommendations for each Campus. The Presidents

and their representatives made presentations and responded

to questions about their Campus activities over the last

two years. The Campus responses are contained in a docu-

ment which is filed in the Regents' Office.



Mrs. Berkley, Mr. Klaich and Mrs. Sparks left the meeting at

various times during the presentations, and returned to the

meeting.



18. Introduction of Ms. Senior USA



Dr. Hammargren introduced Ms. Lori Hargraves, Ms. Senior

Nevada, who was recently named Ms. Senior USA. She will

take advantage of the fee waiver to attend a UNS institu-

tion under the existing senior citizen fee program, and

expressed her appreciation to the Board of Regents.



19. Information Only: Update on System and Campus Academic

Strategic Planning Activities



Chairman Gallagher requested an update on the progress of

system and Campus academic strategic planning activities.



The report, "Academic Planning in Nevada" prepared by the

academic planning consultants was received by the Board of

Regents in February, 1991. Vice Chancellor Warren Fox

explained the timetable of proposed activities for the

coming biennium, as contained in Ref. E. He proposed that

planning activities resulting in system academic priorities

be adopted by the Board of Regents prior to the building of

the biennial budget.



20. Information Only: Completions Report



Director of Institutional Research Karen Steinberg presented

a new report completed by the Chancellor's Office, "Univer-

sity of Nevada System Completions Report". Using data sub-

mitted by the Campuses to the U. S. Department of Education,

the report contains information on the number and levels of

degrees conferred, 1980-1990; the number of degrees con-

ferred by subject area; and Campus summary data on degrees.

The report is filed in the Regents' Office.



21. Approved Handbook Change, Traffic and Parking Regulations,

TMCC



Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 13, Section D,

Traffic and Parking Regulations, TMCC, as contained in

Ref. G, filed in the Regents' Office.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

Traffic and Parking Regulations at TMCC. Dr. Eardley

seconded. Motion carried.



22. Approved Reorganization, WNCC



Approved the reorganization of Western Nevada Community

College to respond to increased enrollment and programs.

The Accreditation Association has also recommended re-

structuring the academic administration. Ref. H is filed

in the Regents' Office.



Lorrie Peterson, from Dean of Educational Services to

President for Administrative Services



Michael Dondero, from Dean of the Fallon Campus and

Rural Centers to Assistant to the President and

Executive Dean of the Fallon Campus



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the reorganization of WNCC to

respond to increased enrollment and programs. Dr. Eardley

seconded. Motion carried.



23. Approved Cloud Seeding Program, DRI



Approved authorization to seek funding from the Interim

Finance Committee on DRI's Cloud Seeding Program.



The cloud seeding funds to be released for expenditure by

Interim Finance were included in the University Budget as

previously approved by the Board of Regents. The legis-

lative finance committees chose to have this budget item

brought before Interim Finance for approval contingent

upon the projected need for cloud seeding as determined in

consultation with the area water masters and climatologists.



Mr. Klaich moved approval to seek funding from the Interim

Finance Committee on DRI's Cloud Seeding Program. Dr.

Derby seconded. Motion carried.



24. Approved Sale of Property, UNR



Approved the sale of property for UNR. In 1967 Domenico

Lambertucci of Tonopah gift deeded 63 patented mining claims

to UNR for the benefit of the Mackay School of Mines. The

claims are located a few miles west of Tonopah.



In 1980 the Board entered into an agreement with Nye County

which would permit the use of some 40 acres of this mining

property for a wastewater treatment plant in exchange for

a 1 1/4 acre parcel of land within the Tonopah city limits.

That exchange is now complete and title to the land is

being conveyed to the Board of Regents.



Dr. Richard Bradt, Dean of Mackay School of Mines, wished

to dispose of the property. The property is to be sold at

a sealed-bid sale. An appraiser was consulted on the

market value and recommended that UNR accept the best

acceptable offer.



Only one bid was received after statewide advertising of

the bid sale was conducted. The Mc Donald's Corporation

submitted a bid of $60,000 for the property.



General Counsel Klasic recommends approval upon review of

the legal documents.



Dr. Hammargren moved approval of the sale of property for

UNR. Mrs. Berkley seconded. Motion carried.



25. Approved Sale of Property, UNLV



Approved the sale of property described as follows:



Lot Five (5) in Block One (1) of PLUNKETT TRACT INDUSTRIAL

SUBDIVISION, as shown by map thereof on file in Book 4,

page 22, in the Office of the County Recorder of Clark

County, Nevada.



The proceeds from the sale will go to the Barrick Lecture

Endowment. The property was appraised at $130,000 and an

offer has been received for $135,000.



General Counsel Klasic recommends approval upon review of

the legal documents.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval of the sale of property for UNLV.

Mrs. Berkley seconded. Motion carried.



26. Information Only: Outstanding Faculty Recognition



At the request of the Board of Regents, each Faculty Senate

Chairman reported on the outstanding faculty achievements

for their respective institutions.



University of Nevada, Las Vegas - UNLV Faculty Senate

Chairman Lori Temple announced the following UNLV out-

standing faculty:



Isabelle Emerson, past Chair of the UNLV Faculty Senate

and a member of the UNLV faculty in the Department of

Music since 1979 has just recently received a grant

from the Nevada Humanities Committee to fund a symposium

for the upcoming Mozart Bicentennial Celebration. The

receipt of the grant is just one of the many projects

she has been working on to ensure the success of the

upcoming celebration. In an effort to involve the

broadest range of talent and provide a comprehensive,

multidisciplinary program, she is helping to coordinate

the contributions of the UNLV Music Department, the

UNLV Theatre Department, the Las Vegas Symphony and

several other community groups. Her efforts in this

area are a reflection of her lifelong interest in and

dedication to the study of Mozart and deserve special

recognition.



James Busser and Cynthia Carruthers, College of Health,

Physical Education and Recreation, recently received a

grant from the Clark County Board of Commissioners to

continue the development of a County Facilities Master

Plan for the Clark County Parks and Recreation Depart-

ment. The project includes making recommendations

about park land and recreational facilities that reflect

the changing needs of the community. Their work will

also result in recommendations for the financing of

such plans. This is the second such grant for Mr.

Busser who has been at the University since 1987 and the

first for Ms. Carruthers who has been at the University

since 1990. Their continued work with the Clark County

Commissioners is yet another outstanding example of

the many ways the University works with and serves the

local community.

27. Information Only: Outstanding Student Recognition



At the request of the Board of Regents, each Student

Government Officer reported on the outstanding student

achievements for their respective institutions.



University of Nevada, Las Vegas - CSUN President Roderick

Colebrook announced the following UNLV outstanding student:



Vince Izzolo, a Junior who is enrolled in the College

of Hotel Administration, is a hardworking student in

very good standing with this University, both academ-

ically and socially. Mr. Izzolo is an Officer in the

Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, and also works at the

Desert Springs Hospital while pursuing his degree.

Just recently, Mr. Izzolo appeared on the television

game show, "Wheel of Fortune". His active partici-

pation and upbeat manners on this program gave this

University positive, national recognition. He won

this nationally-televised tournament for UNLV, which

resulted in additional scholarships to be allocated to

those students in need of financial assistance.



28. Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee



A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Com-

mittee meeting, held June 27, 1991, was made by Regent

Joseph M. Foley, Chairman.



(1) Approved the Handbook addition, Title 4, Chapter 14,

Section 19, Review of New International Student

Programs, as contained in Ref. AA-1, which is filed

in the Regents' Office.



This format will provide information on the program,

curriculum, projected enrollment and resources needed

to initiate such study abroad programs.



(2) Tabled the Item: Distinguished Professor Award - After

a lengthy discussion, the Committee tabled the item on

the Distinguished Professor Award.



This proposal was discussed at the May Board of Re-

gents' meeting, and a recommendation was made to place

it on the June Academic Affairs Committee agenda for

further discussion.



The Distinguished Professor Award shall be bestowed

by the Board of Regents to individuals who have dis-

tinguished themselves in their field or in service

to the institution, and shall only be given in ex-

ceptional cases.



Vice Chancellor Warren Fox explained there were really

two questions: 1) whether the Board should approve

Distinguished Professor Awards that are given on the

Campuses inasmuch as they approve other promotions;

i. e., Associate Professor, Professor; and 2) whether

the Board wants to create its own Distinguished

Professor Awards.



Dr. John Unrue, Senior Vice President and Provost,

explained that UNLV does have a Distinguished Pro-

fessor Award, with very stringent guidelines. Pres-

ident Maxson added that the award is for recognition

of faculty currently on the Campus, whereas the

Distinguished Professorship is the title given for

endowed Chairs at the University. President Crowley

stated that UNR does not have such award, but this

year created a Distinguished Faculty Award.



Because of the confusion over this particular item,

the matter was tabled.



(3) Approved an Outstanding Student Award to be bestowed

by the Board of Regents. The criteria for the award

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

The award will recognize students who have demon-

strated outstanding academic accomplishments, leader-

for continued success.

the 1985 plan. Chancellor Dawson has met with Jim Spoo,

UNS might play in the update. He will be meeting with the

Presidents to solicit their assistance with this important

activity and will keep the Board informed as further devel-

opments are made in regard to the role of UNS.

ized UNR to build an addition to the Edna Brigham building.

Pathology and Audiology Department. Mr. Claude I. Howard

has suggested that Macco Construction Company be used to

construct the addition. The approximate total of the

project is $2 million, with $250,000 being appropriated

tion is less than 25% of the cost, this project does not

require going through the bidding process. Funds need to
