RESOLUTION #89-4



WHEREAS, Christ Nicholas Karamanos was a member of the

Board of Regents for 13 years, serving from December,

1976 until the time of his death in June, 1989; and



WHEREAS, "Chris" was known for his generosity and his

caring spirit for others among his family, friends, co-

workers, community and University fellows; and



WHEREAS, he had an abiding love for students and athlet-

ics, particularly UNLV's Runnin' Rebels, supporting stu-

dents, athletes and employees not only as an avid spec-

tator but as a donor and confidante; and



WHEREAS, Chris shall be missed by his fellow Board mem-

bers, the Chancellor, Presidents, staff, faculty and

students throughout the University of Nevada System;



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Re-

gents of the University of Nevada System expresses to

his son Kyle and to the Karamanos family its extreme

sorrow and sympathy for the untimely death of a col-

league and a friend: Chris. We know he was proud to

have served as a member of the Board of Regents, and

take comfort in knowing that his long association with

higher education was a source of fulfillment in his

life.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the resolution in remembrance

of Regent Chris Karamanos. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion

carried.



5. Chairman's Report



Chairman Whitley formally welcomed Mr. Rogich to the Univer-

sity family. She stated that it will be enjoyable to work

with Mr. Rogich. He is well acquainted with the System,

having attended both UNLV and UNR and having graduated from

UNR. Since that time he has served on numerous boards and

committees, offering his considerable interest and exper-

tise.



Chairman Whitley reported that the State Legislative Session

is drawing to a close after 6 long, difficult months. Given

the resources and parameters in which the Legislators had to

work, UNS fared rather well. UNS had had the largest en-

rollments and the largest budgets ever. Details of this

Session will be discussed later in the meeting. She ex-

pressed on behalf of the Board its appreciation and thanks

to the staff and to the Presidents for the massive jobs they

performed. There were moments of frustration, and discom-

fort, but those times were caused by the driving force to

accomplish as much as possible in the Session. She stated

that she did not condone those actions, and that we must

do better during the next Session.



She thanked the Chancellor and his staff, Presidents and

the staffs from each institution for a job well done.



The Regents, Chancellor's staff and Presidents were provided

almost daily with information on approximately 200 bills

which were introduced that directly affected the System in

some manner. Ms. Pamela Galloway's efforts on the passage

of Question 2 were tireless and effective.



She expressed a special salute to Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks

stating that his knowledge, integrity and honesty has earned

the respect of the Legislators and without his unceasing

efforts UNS would never fare so well.



6. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Dawson reported that the UNS Computing Services

has received a $240,000 grant from the National Science

Foundation for NSFNET, a nationwide program which will en-

hance our access to super computers.



Chancellor Dawson reported that in the past the System had

applied for 1 license through its Radiological Toxicological

Safety Board to handle waste for the System. The State has

now determined that the System institutions must apply for

separate licenses.



Over the years there has been an accumulation of disposable

waste which will cost approximately $60,000 for disposal.

Chancellor Dawson will request permission from the Board of

Regents at a future meeting to use SIIS funds to dispose of

said waste.



7. Election of Officers



The Board of Regents Bylaws, Article IV, Section 2, stipu-

lates the election of officers for the Board.



Section 2. The Chairman and Vice Chairman shall be

elected from among the membership of the Board at the

organizational meeting of the Board held during the

Board's last meeting of the fiscal year ended during

an odd-numbered year and shall serve 2-year terms, to

commence on the following July 1. The Chairman or Vice

Chairman may serve only 2 successive terms in the re-

spective office, but may be reelected to such office

after an intervening term. In the event of a vacancy

in office, the Board shall fill the vacancy for the

remainder of the term by election at the next regularly

scheduled meeting of the Board. No person serving more

than 3 successive years as Chairman or Vice Chairman

shall be elected to successive terms in those respective

offices.



Mrs. Whitley called for nominations for Chairman of the

Board.



Dr. Hammargren nominated Mrs. Dorothy S. Gallagher.



Dr. Hammargren moved unanimous approval of the election of

Mrs. Dorothy S. Gallagher as Chairman of the Board. Dr.

Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



Mrs. Whitley called for nominations for Vice Chairman of

the Board.



Dr. Derby nominated Carolyn M. Sparks. Mrs. Gallagher

nominated Lonnie Hammargren.

Dr. Hammargren: Aye - Regents Gallagher, Hammargren

No - Regents Derby, Eardley, Sparks,

Klaich, Whitley

Abstained - Regents Foley, Rogich



Mrs. Sparks : Aye - Regents Derby, Eardley, Klaich,

Sparks, Whitley

No - Regents Gallagher, Hammargren

Abstained - Regents Foley, Rogich



Dr. Derby moved unanimous approval of the election of Mrs.

Carolyn M. Sparks as Vice Chairman of the Board. Dr.

Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



8. Approved Sale of Bonds, UNLV



Chancellor Dawson requested approval to award the sale of

$11,090,000 University of Nevada System Universities Revenue

Bonds Series July 1, 1989 to the best bidder and authorizing

the issuance of those bonds (Resolution #89-6). They will

be used for construction of student housing and dining com-

mons at UNLV. Mr. Paul Howarth, Howarth and Associates, and

Mr. John Swendseid, bond counsel, presented the details of

the sale.



7 bid proposals were accepted with the lowest bid prepared

by Prudential Bache at 7.154%. Mr. Howarth recommended the

Board accept the bid proposal from Prudential Bache. He

stated that the last bond sale, 3 years ago, was as 7.36%.



Mr. Howarth complimented the Chancellor, Chancellor's staff

and UNLV staff for their efforts in completing this sale.



Mr. Klaich questioned the expected occupancy rate of the

new student housing. President Maxson stated that the

occupancy rate was at 85-90% and added that the present

dormitories are at full occupancy at this time, and there

is a waiting list. UNLV has set aside a contingency plan

for housing and dining commons repairs. The dining commons

will be built behind Tonopah Hall and will be centrally

located for use by the entire University staff. 3 dormi-

tories will be constructed to house 500 students. One will

be 3 stories, one 4 and one 5 stories. The present dining

space in Donald Moyer Student Union will be converted into

additional student life space.



Mr. Klaich moved approval to award the sale of bonds to

Prudential-Bache at 7.154%. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion

carried.



President Maxson extended an acknowledgment to Regent

Carolyn Sparks and Vice President Robert Ackerman for their

efforts on this project.



9. Approved Resolution, UNR



Approved Resolution #89-5 which authorizes the sale of Uni-

versity of Nevada Student Fee Revenue Bonds in the amount

of $10,000 to be used for student housing at UNR. (The

resolution is on file in the Regents Office.)



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of Resolution #89-5 which

authorizes the sale of University of Nevada Student Fee

Revenue Bonds for UNR student housing. Dr. Eardley second-

ed. Motion carried.



10. First Reading - Request Approval of Amendments to Board of

Regents Bylaws



The first reading of 2 amendments to the Board of Regents

Bylaws, Article VII, Section 3(1) and 4 was presented.



A. Amend Article VII, Section 4 of the Board of Regents

Bylaws as follows:



The President of each member institution shall be chief

administrative officer of that institution. The Pres-

idents report to the Chancellor for the administration

of their respective institutions and are accoutable

through the Chancellor to the Board of Regents. The

duties of the Preisdent shall include the following: ...



B. Amend Article VII, Section 3 of the Board of Regents

Bylaws which pertain to the duties of the Chancellor,

by adding the following new subparagraph and reletter-

ing the following current subparagraph:



l) To assist the Board of Regents in evaluating the

performance of the Presidents of the member insti-

tutions;



m) To perform such additional duties as the Board may

direct.



Mr. Foley requested that the item be tabled and that a com-

mittee be appointed to address this issue. He reminded the

Board that in 1985-86 a governance committee was appointed

which addressed this very issue. The consensus of that

study suggested the current language. He stated that he

felt there was no need to change the language at this time.



Since this was the first reading, Chairman Whitley stated

that no action, including tabling, could be taken until the

second reading at the September Board meeting.



Dr. Eardley stated that the management style of the System

Administration is really one without a manager and he felt

a 3rd person (a CEO) is needed in dealing with disagreements

and problem issues. He related that the new language does

not infer a "taking of control of the Campuses", it only

changes the management style for a 3rd party and the Board

of Regents needs a chief executive officer to coordinate

the business of the System.



President Crowley related that he felt it was important to

look at the history of this issue, that the System has

changed its management style several times and the problems

which have instigated this change should be addressed and

solved before a change is made.



Mr. Rogich questioned how the Chancellor felt about the

change. Chancellor Dawson responded that he was amenable

to whatever the Board of Regents directs him to do. He

stated that this change would direct him to supervise the

Presidents and that the Board members would contact the

Chancellor if there were an issue concerning the adminis-

tration of the System.



Chairman Whitley stated that as the language now reads, a

President has to inform 9 Regents of his activities and the

change would designate the Chancellor to receive the infor-

mation from the President, then inform the Board members.

She related she felt that this would be an improved manage-

ment style for the System.



Mr. Klaich stated that he favors the change although he

feels strongly that the position is truly defined by the

incumbent of the office. Further, he stated he relies on

the Chancellor to interact with the Presidents on a daily

basis and the Chancellor's staff to interact with their

counterparts on the Campuses. In defending the Bylaw

change, he stated that he feels this is the way the System

should operate.



President Maxson related that he and other Presidents were

wondering why a change was being made at this time because

he felt the System was running well at this time with

Chancellor Dawson.



Mrs. Gallagher stated she felt the change was to address a

lack of communication within the System. She related that

she would appreciate a central point of contact to receive

information and the Chancellor is that logical person with-

in the System. In her discussions with other Regents, she

related that they sometimes feel left out of the information

"loop" because everything is discussed and decided at the

Presidents' Council. Further, she urged that not just the

Presidents, but all people on the Campuses should make

information available to the Regents through the System

Office.



Dr. Deborah Ballard-Reisch, UNR Faculty Senate Chairman,

supported Regent Foley's recommendation of an extensive

study with input from the faculty. UNLV Faculty Senate

Chairman Nancy Masters agreed and related that those faculty

members with whom she discussed the change were concerned

with "another layer of administration". Mr. Klaich ques-

tioned why the faculty is concerned with the Bylaw change

when it only concerns the Regents, Chancellor and Presi-

dents. Mrs. Masters related that faculty is concerned that

information might get lost if it was necessary to go through

another office. Mrs. Whitley explained that this would not

change communications with the faculty.



President Calabro related that it would not be a change as

far as he is concerned because he now operates in this

manner and he now relies on the Chancellor or his staff to

relay information. He does, he stated, contact Regent

Derby on a number of issues because she represents the

WNCC area.



President Meacham recalled the 1985 study and said he was

curious why a change is considered at this time when things

apparently are going well. President Gwaltney agreed that

a central point of information would be helpful.



Regent Derby related that a number of times she has had to

make a concerted effort to discover what was going on in

the System and that she feels a responsibility to the con-

stituency that had elected her to be very central to the

process and to be well informed, and she felt there has been

a problem.



Regent Eardley related that he felt this would be one means

the Regents would have in evaluating the Chancellor. He

stated he was concerned that Regents seldom learn of contro-

versies among the Presidents, that everything is settled

before it is presented to the Board.



President Crowley related that he and the other Presidents

share an understanding that the Regents want them to work

out any controversies and to bring to the Board a reasonable

solution.



11. Approved Leave, UNR



Approved a 4-month leave of absence for President Joseph

Crowley, UNR, beginning August 15, 1989 and extending to

December 15, 1989. President Crowley will conduct research

and do some writing at Brasenose College in England, an

Oxford University 4-year liberal arts College. He plans to

study historical developments involving leadership in higher

education.



President Crowley proposed to the Board of Regents that

Chancellor Dawson be assigned to serve as chief executive

officer during his absence. The bulk of the day-to-day

administrative responsibility will be apportioned among

the 4 Vice Presidents: Dennis Brown, Academic Affairs;

Ashok Dhingra, Finance and Administration; Patricia

Miltenberger, Student Services; and Paul Page, Development.



Mrs. Gallagher stated that the Board's administrative leave

policy does include Presidents and informed the newer Board

members that Presidential Leave has been discussed numerous

times over the past 4 years. Those discussions focused on

"burn-out", self-renewal and self-development in the same

manner as sabbatical leaves for faculty, and always with

the idea that when the System has strong, capable leadership

the Board must do everything in its power to retain these

individuals. She reminded the Board that President Crowley

has served for 11 1/2 years in that position and is con-

sidered by his peers as the "Dean of the System Presidents".



Mr. Foley moved approval of a leave of absence for Presi-

dent Crowley, UNR. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion carried

unanimously.



12. Report on CCCC Joint Agreements with Clark County Library



President Meacham reported on a joint agreement with Clark

County Library stating that CCCC would focus on the audio-

visual equipment, med-link, and an auditorium which would

hold 250-350 persons, and would have input on the design

of the building. President Meacham introduced Mr. Charles

Hunsberger, Director of the Las Vegas Clark County Library

District.



Mr. Hunsberger stated that the Clark County Library division

is planning for future branches during the next decade and

has committed $1 million to the project. He believes that

the community would support one of these library branches

on CCCC's 5-acre parcel.



Mrs. Gallagher questioned the 50-year lease. Chancellor

Dawson stated that there were some restrictions indicated

in the lease and that General Counsel would review the

documents prior to signing of the lease. President Meacham

indicated that he was presenting this report to the Board

for its information, and asked permission to proceed with

the planning of the library branch.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval to accept the proposal and con-

cept, and to proceed with negotiations with the Clark County

Library. Mr. Rogich seconded. Motion carried.



13. Legislative Update and Approved UNS 1989-90 Operating Budget



Chancellor Dawson informed the Board of Regents that Vice

Chancellor Ron Sparks was at the State Legislature which is

in its finals days of the Session. Chancellor Dawson dis-

tributed the 1989-91 Legislative Approved Budget and review-

ed the document with the Board.



New positions for 1989-90 totaled 229.30 for professional

positions and 121.50 for classified. The total for 1990-91

is 89.20 for professionals and 20.69 for classified. Chan-

cellor Dawson stated that 1% of professional teaching sal-

aries can be used in Support Services.



The total operating budget adjustments is $3,220,897, and

the total equipment appropriation is $7,989,000. Both

these figures are over the Governor's budget recommenda-

tions.



Mr. Rogich requested information on the slot rebate funds.

Chancellor Dawson stated that Congress had delegated the

operation of those funds to the State Legislature. The

first $5 million would go directly to higher education for

capital construction, the remaining balance would be dis-

tributed to K-12 education. In 1983, the Governor's rec-

ommendation removed this fund and placed it into the General

Fund. UNS had lobbied for this money ever since and it

has never been returned. During this current Session it

again came before the Legislators and failed. Mr. Rogich

requested General Counsel Klasic to review the original

language from Congress and deliver an interpretation to

the Board of Regents whether the Legislature has the power

to retain these funds. (Note: It was later determined that

the Legislature does have the power of retention. These

funds are no longer collected by the U. S. Government, but

are now collected by the State.)



Chancellor Dawson reported that the Estate Funds will be

allocated for equipment as indicated in the Governor's

budget.



In regard to Community College merit, the new law reads that

an increase of 3% will be granted for satisfactory or better

service. The Legislature has called for an interim study on

UNS merit pay. This study will be comprised of Legislator

members only with UNS clarifying the merit pay issue. There

is still an opinion among the Legislators that the 2% merit

pay should not be granted to Administrators. The Deans and

above cannot partake in the merit pool for meritorious pay,

they can only receive merit increase through salary savings

or other funding, but not from the funded merit pool.



The Legislature approved $10,000,000 for Campus improvements

and $114,456,300 for new construction. The source of fund-

ing for capital construction is as follows:



General fund $ 13,031,300

General Obligation Bonds 47,925,000

Revenue Bonds 60,000,000

Other Funds 3,500,000

Total $124,456,300



Discussion is continued after item #15.



14. Report on Course Offerings at Laughlin, CCCC



President Meacham reported on courses CCCC is offering in

Laughlin, Nevada. He stated that CCCC does not have an

adequate physical place at this time to teach courses to

Laughlin and Bullhead residents. Daniel Byron and John

Midby have developed a shopping center and have allocated

2,000 sq. ft. in the El Mirage Shopping Center for CCCC

to teach Casino-related courses. This space consists of

a reception area, 2 classrooms, restrooms and a storage

room. CCCC would like to expand its courses to include

English and Math.



President Meacham informed the Board that Laughlin's popu-

lation is 4,000 at this time with expectations of continued

growth.



President Meacham stated that CCCC has 1 year of free rent

at El Mirage Shopping Center. This will aid in building

revenue for additional space in the future. He reported

that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has property

designated for educational use in the Laughlin area. A

high school has been proposed to be built on this land.

CCCC would like to purchase 80 acres of this parcel at

$1.10 per sq. ft.



President Meacham introduced Mr. Gordon Gochnour, Assistant

to the President, who indicated that an application has been

submitted to BLM for purchasing the land. This project will

be included in the master planning documents to come before

the Board this Fall. CCCC has already purchased 4 portable

units for office space, of which 2 units will be used in

Laughlin.



President Meacham introduced Mr. Daniel Bryon, member of the

CCCC Master Planning Committee, and expressed gratitude for

the many contributions his company has made to CCCC and UNS.



The meeting recessed at 11:50 A.M. and reconvened at 10:30 A.M.

Friday, June 30, 1989, with all Regents present except Chairman

Whitley. Vice Chairman Gallagher presided.



15. Approved Professional Compensation, UNS



Compensation for professional staff whose salaries require

Board of Regents' approval were approved at a 5% cost of

living increase with the perquisites to remain at the exist-

ing levels.



A lengthy discussion was held regarding the proposed salary

recommendations. Mr. Rogich questioned how merit increases

for professional staff were developed. Mrs. Gallagher stat-

ed that the Board of Regents has discussed this issue but

has not set a criteria for awarding merit increases and

that UNS has been lobbying the Legislature for a funded

merit pool for Administrators for some time. During this

Session the Legislature approved an interim study on merit

pay.



Mrs. Sparks stated that she resented receiving the salary

recommendations during the meeting and requested time to

confer with the Presidents before voting on the recommenda-

tions. Chancellor Dawson explained that the Legislature

just released the information for salaries, hence the

tardiness in getting the recommendations to the Regents.



Mrs. Gallagher stated that this issue would be followed up

with an internal study to develop a plan of action.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of a 5% cost of living increase

with no change in Community College perquisites, and that

the Board of Regents promptly study the recommendations,

with any additional increases to become retroactive, if

approved at the Board of Regents September meeting. Mr.

Foley seconded.



President Crowley suggested a study or workshop be held on

this issue. He stated that the Regents have approved a

salary goal for Administration and faculty. The goal is

for Nevada to be comparable with other institutions across

the nation by using the Arkansas Study for comparison. The

faculty salaries are at the average on the whole, but the

Administration is below the average. He stated that he had

no objection in bringing his own salary recommendation back

to the Board for approval, but that the other recommenda-

tions would create serious problems on his Campus.



President Maxson stated that salaries should be addressed

soon. UNLV is in the process of hiring a Dean, but cannot

afford to tell the candidate that he would only be receiv-

ing a 5% increase while others receive a 7%.



Mr. Klaich clarified his motion by stating that the Board

believes in granting meritorious pay to Adminstrators, but

it should be addressed by Regents, the Chancellor and Pres-

idents.



President Calabro stated that at WNCC the increase repre-

sents additional duties and responsibilities for Adminis-

tration. These positions handle the extra duties which non-

appropriated positions would handle. This is a way to com-

pensate those on staff now.



President Crowley questioned if the motion affects only the

persons on the recommendations list or all persons receiving

a 7% increase which are not reported on this list. He also

questioned how to handle the salaries of those who have

notations such as 3-year contracts, etc.



Mrs. Sparks stated that the motion only affects those per-

sons which the Board of Regents directly approves.



Mr. Rogich requested that for the next meeting titles be

inserted on the recommendation handout.



Motion carried.



13. Legislative Update and Approved UNS 1989-90 Operating Budget

(continued)



Chancellor Dawson continued the discussion of the operating

programs holding specialized accreditation, as con-

tained in Ref. AA-1, filed with the permanent minutes.

gested that for future consideration costs for accredi-

tation be included as a line item in the budget.

vided an overview of new undergraduate general educa-

tion core requirements to be implemented at UNR. A

grams at UNR this Fall.

courses, and will be required of all undergraduate

students.

core requirements will be evaluated rigorously and

continuously, and he will report to the Board of

Regents on its effectiveness.



(3) A request was made for reconsideration of a decision of

the Nevada State Board of Nursing to deny a request to

Northern Nevada Community College for a nursing program

outreach to Ely. Special meetings were held with the

Nursing Board June 16 and June 23. During the meeting

of June 23, the Nevada State Board of Nursing recon-

sidered its decision and has recommended a nursing pro-

gram in Ely.

from Regent Gallagher, Chancellor Dawson, Vice Chancel-

lor Fox, General Counsel Klasic, the Chancellor's

staff, Presidents Gwaltney and Meacham and their staff

members for their intervention efforts on behalf of

NNCC.



(4) Regent Foley provided an update on planned activities

for the Summer and Fall relating to the UNS study of

student retention. He requested an ad hoc committee

be established to address this issue. Vice Chancellor

Fox stated that data will be gathered during the Sum-

mer months, and is hopeful a report can be presented

to the Committee this Fall.



(5) Approved endorsing a plan to establish an Institute

for the Study of Gambling and Commerical Gaming at

UNR, pending submission of a formal new program pro-

posal. The proposal will outline a plan to establish

an umbrella organization within UNR which would focus

on the coordination of research, development of aca-

demic courses, initiation of an information clearing-

house, as well as other activities related to gambling

and commercial gaming.



A base of funding would be provided by UNR; however,

grants and gifts also will be sought. Planning will

begin on July 17; however, full implementation will

not commence until Board of Regents approval of the

formal new program proposal, to be submitted for con-

sideration according to the Board of Regents' review

schedule.



The institute will be housed in the College of Business

Administration with separate standing. President Crow-

ley stated that the local gaming community is very en-

thusiastic.

a gift to the University, contingent upon approval of

the College. The program proposal will be submitted

for consideration according to the Board of Regents'

review schedule.



Mr. Klaich asked about the resulting impact on the

College of Arts and Letters. President Maxson stated

that the College would retain its name, but a reorgan-

ization of the College would occur. He added that all

the College of Fine and Performing Arts programs al-

ready are accredited.



Vice Chancellor Fox explained that the reason for the two

above items requesting approval of a resolution of intent

is to inform the Board of Regents that the programs will be

forthcoming. The intent for approval is needed to begin

seeking potential gifts from the public sector.



Mr. Foley moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Academic Affairs Committee. Dr. Hammargren seconded.

Motion carried.

Community College Faculty Relations



A report and recommendations of the ad hoc Committee on

tablished to focus on broader Community College issues; i.

e., conferences, "Building Communities Document", and as-

sessment of recommendations. She asked President Calabro

to Chair this subcommittee, and Mrs. Sparks and Ms. Funk-

houser to serve as members.



(1) The subcommittee met on June 23, 1989. Dr. Derby gave

a summary of the meeting and explained the logistics

of handling the proposed survey to be distributed to

all Community College faculty members. The subcommit-

tee confirmed using the same methods established at the

previous meetings. The lists need to be updated, but

will use the same guidelines. It was decided that both

faculty and Administrators would respond to the survey,

to be distributed on August 24, with responses deliver-

ed to the Chancellor's Office on August 31. The Chan-

cellor's staff will assist Committee members in using

the scan tron and devising a coding method for written

responses.

culated and discussed in detail. Mr. Rose questioned

the need for demographic information on the survey

saying he felt it would pinpoint the respondent and

hinder confidentiality. Regent Rogich stated that

the demographic information regarding gender and race

is valid to accurately compile data.

cumbersome. The Committee made several revisions to

the draft, including combining sections A and B. The

resulting document will be distributed to all Committee

members.

ing the survey results. The Committee felt that the

results should be released following the public hear-

ings on the Community College Campuses. Mrs. Gallagher

results after the public meetings held on the Campuses.



The Committee requested that an introductory letter

describe the process by which survey results would be-

come public.

munity College Campus the week of September 11-15. The

following persons have been assigned for each institu-

tion:

Bob Rose Paul Nelson



TMCC - Carolyn Sparks WNCC - Daniel Klaich

Paul Meacham Ron Remington

Patti Crookham Dave Wilkins

on Tuesday and Thursday would be most convenient for most of

the faculty and Administration. The Committee directed Sec-

retary Moser to schedule hearings and make travel arrange-

ments.



Dr. Derby moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the ad hoc Committee on Community College Faculty Rela-

tions. Dr. Hammargren seconded. Motion carried.

ing again turned down the proposal. Assemblyman Marvin Sedway

discussed the matter with the Governor (who appoints that Board).
