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

5. Requirements for Masters Degrees



President Miller reported that the Graduate Council of UNR

had adopted a proposal to establish an alternative set of

requirements necessary for completion of the Master of Arts

and the Master of Science Degrees. Each graduate student

would have the option of choosing either Plan A, the exist-

ing set of requirements, or Plan B which deviates from Plan

A as follows:



(1) A minimum of 32 credits of course work carrying gradu-

ate credit.



(2) A minimum of 15 credits in courses numbered 900 or

above.



(3) At least 15 of the 32 graduate credits must be in a

major field of study, with at least 8 credits in a

minor field.



(4) Each Department will have the prerogative of establish-

ing additional requirements to those specified above.



President Miller noted that the major differences between

Plan A and Plan B are that Plan B will not require a thesis

and Plan B will require 32 credits of course work instead

of the 24 credits required in Plan A. President Miller

recommended approval.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred, noting that the 33% increase

in course load caused by increase in credit requirements

from 24 to 32 credits will have to be accommodated; however,

this will be compensated in part by the deletion of the the-

sis requirement.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



6. Narcotics Testing Laboratory



President Miller presented a proposal from Mr. Tom Carrigan,

Administrator, Division of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs,

Department of Parole and Probation, State of Nevada, re-

questing UNR to establish a narcotics testing laboratory

in collaboration with that agency and without cost to the

University. President Miller endorsed the request by Dean

George T. Smith, School of Medical Sciences, that this be

accomplished through the Biochemistry Division. Chancel-

lor Humphrey concurred. (Proposal filed with permanent

minutes.)



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



7. Agricultural Experiment Station Property



Dean Dale Bohmont reported that the State Department of

Highways is acquiring lands necessary for the construction

of the Ring Road in Washoe County and has offered the Uni-

versity $71,130 for 20.28 acres at Main Station Farm. He

recommended that the offer be rejected and a right of entry

granted to the Highway Department, subject to the following

conditions:



(1) Right of way fence to conform to State Highway specifi-

cations, Type B woven wire fence. Fencing materials

to include 2'7-1/2" woven wire topped with two barbed

wires fastened to wood and steel posts. Braces to be

8" x 8" treated timber posts with 4" x 4" timber hori-

zontal brace. Fencing to be placed on stock side of

posts. Gates to be 16" minimum, chain link type.



(2) Pump, bases, well casing, and Parshall flumes for

drainage research to be removed by the Highway Depart-

ment with all materials salvaged or replaced. Highway

Department to reimburse the University for the cost of

reinstalling the wells, pump, pump bases and Parshall

flumes.



(3) Irrigation system replacement to be done between Novem-

ber 1 and March 1 to minimize crop loss due to disrup-

tion of irrigation schedules. Pioneer ditch must main-

tain flow for stock water through Winter and full flow

March 1 to November 1.



Dean Bohmont stated that since this is a special use land,

similar to Valley Road Farm property, it has a substantially

higher value than farm land which is the basis for the High-

way Department's offer of $71,130.



President Miller endorsed Dean Bohmont's recommendation.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred with the understanding that

the Administration would be authorized to negotiate further

with the State Department of Highways.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Dr. Lombardi entered the meeting at 9:50 A.M.



8. Proposed Gift of Garden Farms to UNR



Dean Bohmont reported that he is presently negotiating with

the owners of "Garden Farms", a 10-acre greenhouse complex

in Las Vegas, who propose to give this facility to the Uni-

versity for operation by the Agricultural Experiment Sta-

tion. He presented color slides depicting the greenhouses

and the surrounding land and recommended that he be author-

ized to proceed with the negotiations. President Miller

concurred.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed the above recommendation with

the understanding that this matter must come back to the

Board for final approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



9. Lambertucci Bequest



President Miller reported that the Attorney General had

requested the University to execute a deed to the surface

rights of a portion of the mining properties bequeathed to

the University by Domenico Lambertucci, deceased. In mak-

ing the request, the Attorney General cited the following

background:



Domenico Lambertucci, in his will, gave to the Univer-

sity of Nevada, for use by the Mackay School of Mines,

all of his mining properties. He gave to his heirs

the surface rights in other tracts adjoining the mining

properties. Through usage, a portion of the surface

rights which were utilized as the Lambertucci Ranch

overlapped the mining properties bequeathed to the

University of Nevada.



At the time of the hearing on the Petition for Distri-

bution in the Lambertucci Estate, the apparent conflict

caused by this overlap was resolved by agreement. By

the terms of that agreement, the University would deed

to the Executor of the Estate that portion of the mining

properties which overlapped the surface tract and con-

stituted the Lambertucci Ranch within an existing fence.

The lands described in Parcel No. 1 of the Deed are

those referred to above.



The agreement further provided that the surface rights

to the Hidden Gem claim would similarly be deeded to

the Executor for the benefit of the heirs, with two

exceptions:



First, the University, for access, is to retain all

rights to a portion of the claim consisting of ap-

proximately 3 acres adjacent to the highway.



Second, many years ago, Domenico Lambertucci per-

mitted two persons, Mary Ann Czarevitch and A. C.

Anderson, to build homes on the claim. The court's

order authorized the Executor, upon receipt of the

Deed, to convey to each of these persons a specif-

ically described portion of the claim on which

their homes are situated.



When this Deed is executed, and such conveyances there-

after made by the Executor to the heirs and to Mrs.

Czarevitch and Mr. Anderson, all in accordance with the

order of the court, the estate will be in a position

to be closed and the Executor discharged.



Dean Scheid recalled in January the Board had accepted a bid

from the Hughes Corporation to sell the mining leases. The

University's right to sell is being contested; however, the

execution of this Deed has nothing to do with that action.

A portion of the surface rights will be transferred. That

portion does overlie part of the property being sold to

Hughes but the bidders were notified of that condition in

the process of advertising. Mr. Walsh stated that he was

aware of the details in this matter and recommended this

as the appropriate course of action. President Miller and

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



10. Scholarship Reports



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that the Board had requested a

report on all scholarship funds and the manner in which they

are expended. In compliance with that request, he noted

that two reports concerning scholarship awards for 1969-70

had been transmitted with the agenda. One report was pre-

pared by Dr. John Standish, Director of Financial Aids, UNLV

and one prepared by Dr. Robert Mc Queen, Chairman, Scholar-

ships and Prizes Board, UNR. He also noted the inclusion

of a report concerning the Bob Davis Scholarships which had

been prepared by the Chancellor's Office with assistance

from UNR and UNLV (all 3 reports are filed with permanent

minutes).



President Zorn commented on the report from UNLV, pointing

out that as a young institution UNLV has not been able to

generate a lot of scholarship funding. These are important

aspects of developing incentive for student quality and

raising the caliber of the student body generally, he noted.

UNLV needs considerably more funding in this area, he said.

The salient thing this report brings out, he stated, aside

from the quantitative factor, is that most of the individual

grants are financed by off-campus groups who, for the most

part, select their own recipients. The number of scholar-

ships that are awarded by the Scholarship Committee is small

in reference to the number of all awards. Dr. Zorn stated

that the Scholarship Committee is quite concerned about

this and is concerned also about the quality of access to

scholarships in all sectors of the Campus. Sometimes there

have been proposals that the scholarships be assigned by

quota to Colleges; however, Dr. Zorn said that he believed

that talent which needs encouragement does not come by

quota but by individuals, and needs individual evaluation.

Dr. Zorn noted that the recent addition of Bob Davis

Scholarship has added significantly to the funds available

for UNLV students, providing approximately half again as

many awards as had previously existed.



Dr. Zorn continued his comments by stating that he believed

the report is useful in that it points up the inadequacy of

scholarship funds and also highlights the University's ef-

forts to provide assistance to the economically and cultur-

ally disadvantaged student, noting that of a total of 153

scholarship awards at UNLV, totaling $54,877.25, 47, or a

total of $17,600, were made to this group. He pointed out

that the first year of the Bob Davis Scholarships had been

an experimental year with limited guidelines and no way in

which to predict the success of the program. Based on the

experience during this first year, Dr. Zorn stated, the

Scholarship Committee has recommended that henceforth the

Davis Scholarships be awarded on a semester-to-semester

basis and that a level of achievement be established so

that there must be a performance approaching an average

grade of C for continuation in the award.



President Miller commented on the report from UNR, noting

that he would not repeat the material contained in the

report since the covering narrative by Dr. Mc Queen was so

complete. He did stated that the narrative draws attention

to certain aspects of the Scholarship Program which deserves

continuing attention.



Dr. Miller noted that, as at UNLV, UNR also has been through

an experimental year with the Davis Scholarships. He re-

called that the Davis Scholarships had been divided into 3

parts with up to $50,000 allocated to an Educational Op-

portunity Program which was implemented in 1969-70. The

second and third parts of the Davis Scholarships were ap-

proved later in the year for implementation when funds were

available and it is anticipated that this will occur in

1970-71.



Dr. Anderson recalled that he had asked for the report on

scholarship monies and the ways in which they were expend-

ed because he believed there was an inadequate overall

plan for their administration. He also pointed out that

directions of the Board of Regents had not been followed

in the administration of the Davis Scholarships in that a

number of awards had exceeded the $1000 limit placed on

the individual scholarships. Dr. Anderson stated that he

had a number of suggestions which he believed would aid

in the improvement of the Scholarship Program. He sub-

mitted the following recommendations, asking that they be

referred to the Presidents and to the Director of Community

College Division for review and later discussion:



All scholarships and prizes and fee and tuition waivers

for the University of Nevada Reno Campus, except when

designated otherwise by the Board of Regents and the

Administration, shall be supervised and administered

by the Scholarship and Prizes Board of the University

of Nevada Reno Campus. Candidates for scholarships,

prizes and fee or tuition waivers shall be nominated

by the appropriate Administrative Officer, College or

other Division or Department Officers in accord with

stipulated directions or other regularly formulated

guidelines.



1. The Scholarship and Prizes Board shall administer

the Davis Fund to conform with the following guide-

lines. The Director of the Educational Opportunity

Program or others may nominate culturally or educa-

tionally or economically deprived students for

Davis Scholarships. Such use of the Scholarship

and Prizes Board would allow for consistent con-

sideration of these students, and would provide

for the existing, experienced organization of the

Scholarship and Prizes Board to be used. This will

free time of the Director of EOP so that he will be

able to devote additional effort to tutorial assist-

ance of minority students, helping them find and

keep part-time jobs together with general counseling

of this group.



2. Davis Scholarships shall be for one semester at a

time and the recipient shall be registered for at

least 12 credits. Davis Scholarships shall be for

students who are substantially full-time and monies

shall not be advanced beyond one semester.



3. Scholarships shall not be awarded to a student whose

cumulative grade point average is below 2.0 or whose

most recent semester grade point average is below

2.0. To award a scholarship to a student who is

not making his grades is nothing but misplaced wel-

fare, is of no real advantage to the student and

deprives other students of needed scholarship money.



4. Davis recipient students should be Nevada residents,

with highest priority given to those born in Nevada

and graduating from Nevada high schools and second

priority to those not born in Nevada but who have

graduated from Nevada high schools. The logic of

this rests both in stated terms of the Davis bequest

and the fact that we should give financial scholar-

ship assistance to those persons in Nevada who need

it before bringing in people from out-of-state.

The Nevadans concerned would usually not be eligible

for similar scholarships in other states.



5. Scholarships shall be limited to $500 per semester

at the most. This would provide for payment of the

consolidated fee ($217.50), books (estimated $50 to

$75) and still leave $208 to $233 for incidentals.



Those students who do not have additional needed

income should be able to work part-time, the same

as other students, for board and room. The program

under these conditions would take less money for

an equal number of students then previously. This

would leave more money for general scholarships,

and probably even more of the minority and other

disadvantaged students who need help and can do

College level work could still be taken care of.



6. At times additional limited use shall be made of

additional in-state tuition fee waivers in numbers

to be recommended by the President and approved by

the Board of Regents, to provide assistance for

special circumstances or situations where it is not

possible to provide adequately through existing

sources. Examples might be re-entry to employment

as teachers, nurses, etc., that need some financial

help for refresher courses or might be able to

achieve equity for Colleges with fewer scholarships

than average.



7. Any new scholarship or prize money made available

to the University shall be administered to honor

the terms or desires of the donor. When no terms

or desires are expressed, guidelines for their

administration shall be established by the Admin-

istration and the Board of Regents.



8. There should be encouragement throughout the Uni-

versity to seek more scholarship and prize money

or unrestricted gifts but efforts should be worked

out and be coordinated with the office of the

Director of Development.



Mr. Jacobsen referred to the report on the Davis Scholar-

ships, expressing interest in the fact that approximately

1/3 of the recipients at UNR had actually had an increase

in their grade point average at admission and that approx-

imately 1/2 of those reflecting an increase began the

period with a grade point average below 2.0. Perhaps, he

said, some analysis should be made to determine if the

students who are being helped are those who can be expected

to ultimately bring themselves to a level where they are

doing acceptable work. He also suggested some considera-

tion be given to the desirability of awarding EOP on a

semester to semester basis. He asked that his comments be

included in the review requested from the Presidents and

that a report be brought back to the Board at an early

meeting.



Mr. Bell asked the Presidents what they would consider a

reasonable date for a report of this nature.



President Miller stated that although he recognized that it

would be administratively awkward, he would wish to have

until the October meeting before returning with a report.



President Zorn stated that the October meeting would be

desirable for his Campus also; however, he said he believed

that UNLV already complies with the criteria suggested by

Dr. Anderson. He noted that the Scholarship Committee has

already recommended that scholarships be awarded on a

semester-to-semester basis and has established a 3.0 grade

point average requirement.



Chancellor Humphrey asked the Presidents what problems they

would anticipate with this timing in view of the fact that

scholarships for the Fall semester would already have been

awarded. He suggested that it be specified that the Fall

scholarships would be awarded only to those students who

are making satisfactory progress toward a degree.



Dr. Zorn stated this would cause no problem for UNLV. Dr.

Miller also stated that it would cause no problem for UNR

since such problems would normally occur at the end of the

first semester. Dr. Miller added that for the record he

wished to point out that exceptions made with respect to

the amount of stipend and the continuation of students in

the EOP were made with his knowledge and approval.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that the recommendations submitted by

Dr. Anderson be made a part of the minutes and be referred

to the Presidents for review with a report back to the

Board in October, at which time they be adopted as a state-

ment of policy. Motion seconded by Mr. Seeliger.



Dr. Barmettler stated that since there are a number of stu-

dents enrolled in non-degree problems who are interested in

receiving scholarship assistance, perhaps it would be unfair

to specify they must be making satisfactory progress toward

a degree. Chancellor Humphrey agreed and suggested it might

be better phrased as specifying they maintain a grade point

average of not less than 2.0



Dr. John Wellinghoff, Administrative Assistant to the ASUN

President, read the following excerpt from the accreditation

report of UNR by the Northwest Association:



Financial Aids (Loans, Scholarships, Prizes, Waivers)



The program includes all the forms of financial aid

found in comparable institutions. While the amounts

available are limited, this is true for most insti-

tutions. Nevada appears to be no worse off than many,

and in a more favorable position than some.



The most unfortunate feature of the program is its un-

sophisticated organization and operation. Clearly, the

institution does not meet the financial aid standard

for accreditation. Scholarships and waivers are admin-

istered under an Academic Department. The Office of

Financial Aids handles loans and part-time employment.

There appears to be little coordination and cooperation.



The common and most acceptable practice is for the Fi-

nancial Aids Office (including scholarships and waivers)

to be centralized and to have the authority to use all

forms of student assistance at the College. Programs,

policies and procedures are guided by the faculty but

centrally administered. Through centralization and

sound policies, it should be possible to grant a loan,

scholarship, tuition or fee waiver, part-time job, or

any combination of these to a worthy student.



While the present Financial Aid Office operates on the

need principle in awarding loans and part-time jobs, the

office responsible for scholarships and waivers does not

believe in the principle. In selecting scholarship and

waiver recipients it was reported to the effect that

"selection can be based on scholarship only since finan-

cial need is exceedingly difficult to determine." As a

result, scholarship stipends for Washoe County students

are usually $250 and $500 for those from other counties.

Apparently it is not understood that student need can

be accurately assessed through national programs of the

System of the American College Testing Program. It is

conservatively estimated that more than 1000 collegiate

institutions rely on these programs to help determine

student need, and that these institutions control more

than 80% of the scholarships awarded. This does not

mean that scholarships are being awarded without con-

sideration of scholarship. Certainly, the prime con-

sideration in selecting scholarship recipients should

be academic excellence; however, the stipends should be

based on need. Such a program stretches limited schol-

arship funds and provides greater benefit to worthy

students.



Apparently the present arrangement causes much duplica-

tion of effort through separate applications for various

types of aid, and a heavy use of some faculty time in

administrative duties. For entering Freshman applica-

tions that go out to high schools, it is common to have

a single application that can be used for all forms of

financial aid. Some have incorporated this form with

the application for admission.



In view of the findings, it is suggested that:



1. Careful consideration be given to reorganizing

the financial aid program under a central office.



2. A student Financial Aid Committee, broadly repre-

sentative of faculty and students be established

to set policies and procedures.



3. Financial need be considered in setting scholar-

ship stipends as well as loan amounts.



4. A uniform financial aid application be designed.



Mr. Wellinghoff stated that the ASUN supports the recommen-

dations reflected above and asked that it be given consider-

ation during the review which has been requested.



Mr. Jacobsen agreed and expanded his motion to provide that

it be included in the Presidents' review.



President Miller noted that the recommendations of the

Accrediting Committee have not been ignored. Dr. Mc Queen

agreed and also noted that the Scholarships and Prizes

Committee meets in the Spring and immediately thereafter

the Financial Aids Office is informed of the awards which

are approved. That office is then able to incorporate

these figures into the information on which decisions for

financial aid are based.



Motion carried without dissent.



Mr. Bell asked for an expression from the Board concerning

the award of scholarship monies to students with a grade

point average below 2.0.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that the Administration be permitted to

continue awarding Educational Opportunity Program grants

to students below 2.0 grade point average, pending further

review of the Scholarship Program in October, and providing

that the award of these grants be reviewed at the end of

the first semester. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent.



11. Awards of Bids, UNR



A. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened June 23, 1970,

for the baseball field sprinkler system. Two bids

were received:



Savage & Son, Inc. $13,000

Warren's Lawn Sprinkling Co. 12,989



President Miller recommended award of the bid to

Warren's Lawn Sprinkling. Chancellor Humphrey con-

curred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



B. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened June 12, 1970,

for a Digital Laser Raman Spectrophotomer for the

Mr. Pine stated that although the bid of Spectra-

Physics, Inc. was lower, the Chemistry Department

considered the equipment offered by Jarrell-Ash to

be superior and recommended the bid be awarded to that

firm.



President Miller recommended approval. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



C. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened June 19, 1970,

President Miller recommended award to Clint Lee Company.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



D. Mr. Pine reported that bids for dairy products were

opened June 22, 1970. 3 identical bids were received,

each in the amount of $27,853.29. Mr. Pine recommended

that each bidder receive the business for 2 months at

a total of $9,194.43. Bidders were Beatrice Foods,

Crescent Dairy and Model Dairy, all of Reno. Mr. Pine

noted that prices on dairy products have a minimum price

established by the State Dairy Commission.



President Miller recommended approval. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



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

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



E. Mr. Pine reported that bids for 82 items of groceries

were opened June 23, 1970. Bids were as follows:

ization be granted to exercise the option to purchase at

this time for $7390.30. Monies are available within

the budget of Central Office Services.



President Miller recommended approval. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



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

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



12. Report on Progress of University Projects



A report from the Director of Physical Plant on the status

of all capital improvement projects under the supervision

of UNR was transmitted with the agenda. A similar report

from the State Planning Board was distributed. (Both

reports are on file in the Chancellor's Office.)



13. Change in Name and Function of the College of General and

Technical Studies, UNLV



President Zorn reported that the UNLV Curriculum Committee

and the Faculty Senate have approved a plan to change the

name of the College of General and Technical Studies to the

College of Allied Health Professions. The purpose of this

request was outlined by Dean Dwight Marshall in a letter,

as follows:



The College of General and Technical studies requests

Curriculum Committee and other appropriate review to

change the name of this academic subunit to "College

of Allied Health Professions". We intend to concen-

trate our educational program on medically related

curriculum, now commonly called Allied Health Profes-

sions throughout the United States.



We will concentrate on baccalaureate level education,

offering only those less-than-baccalaureate programs

which require special faculty or equipment used to

offer baccalaureate degrees in one of the allied health

areas. We will offer a limited number of graduate de-

grees in the allied health fields, but do not expect

to bring these forward until the latter half of the 10

year planning period.



The emerging Community College System will relieve us of

the responsibility, placed by Faculty Senate action in

1964, for offering less-than-baccalaureate programs in

vocational-technical areas. We would like to be in a

position to assist the Community College in its orderly

development. This may include appropriate arrangements

to transfer selected programs from this College to the

Community College as it develops. In any event, the

change recognizes the urgent need for local preparation

of baccalaureate individuals to serve the health needs

of the community.



Pending appropriate review, certain changes have been

projected. It is our intention to effect a transfer of

the Law Enforcement Program to the College of Social

Science at the earliest possible time. We have discon-

tinued the offering of the Associate Degree in Design

Technology and Fire Sciences. We will continue to offer

coursework until such time as the Community College is

prepared to absorb these offerings. Other similar

changes are being discussed and will be implemented as

needed in order to redirect this academic subunit as

detailed above.



President Zorn endorsed the request of the College of Gen-

eral and Technical Studies and recommended approval. Chan-

cellor Humphrey concurred with the further stipulation that

in recognition of the fact that the College is no longer

offering the Associate Degree in Design Technology and in

Fire Science, authority for those degree programs be for-

mally rescinded.



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

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



(Item numbers 14 through 19 not used.)



20. State Suit Against Nevada Association of Chiropractic

Medicine



Chancellor Humphrey reported that by telephone poll (8 af-

firmatives, unable to contact 3) the Board had authorized

the University to enter into a suit, in cooperation with

the State Board of Education and the Attorney General,

against Nevada Association of Chiropractic Medicine.



Mr. Walsh stated that the suit had been filed but since he

was prohibited from publicly discussing the case, he would

prefer to make his report in Executive Session.



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

without dissent that this discussion be transferred to

the Executive Session agenda.



21. Purchase in Excess of $5000, UNLV



President Zorn reported that bids for office furniture for

the new Chemistry building were received June 19, 1970 as

follows:



Sarrets Office Equipment Co. $14,101.34

Business Machines Company 16,917.28

Sears, Roebuck and Co. $13,992.67

plus 1 item not bid low 321.26 14,313.93

Hart-Cobb-Carley 24,773.30

Armanko Office Supply Co. 13,147.28

plus 2 items not bid low 2,017.72 15,165.00



Dr. Zorn stated that the Chemistry Department had recommend-

ed the deletion of item No. 11, conference table, and item

No. 13, utility racks, as being unacceptable. With the

deletion of these items, the bids are as follows:



Sarrets Office Equipment Co. $12,083.62

Business Machines Company 14,434.62

Sears, Roebuck and Co. 12,211.37

Hart-Cobb-Carley 22,144.61

Armanko Office Supply Co. 13,147.28



President Zorn recommended the bid be awarded to Sarrets

Office Equipment Co., with the exception of items No. 11 and

13 for a total purchase from that firm of $11,841.95. He

recommended that item No. 11, conference table, be purchased

from Hart-Cobb-Carley in the amount of $432.38 and item No.

13 be purchased from All Steel Equipment Company in the

amount of $1887.05. Total of order would be $14,161.38.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



22. Sabbatical Leave Subsidy, DRI



Mr. Warburton requested that $3500 be allocated to DRI from

discretionary funds to finance the sabbatical leave author-

ized for 1970-71 for DRI. He noted that sabbatical leaves

are financed by the Department involved, aided by allocation

of $3500 of institutional money. The sabbatical leave ac-

count (of $3500 per leave) is budgeted each year by UNR and

UNLV. When the 1969-71 budget for DRI was prepared, no con-

sideration was given to requesting the $3500 allocation

since DRI participates with the Community College Division,

University Press, Computing Center and Chancellor's Office

for the one leave available. Chancellor Humphrey recommend-

ed the request be approved and the money transferred from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund (1-4-26-3002).



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



23. Skill Training Center



Director Donnelly reported on the progress of the search

for a facility in Las Vegas in which to house the MDTA Skill

Training Center. He noted that he had, at the request of

several of the North Las Vegas Officials, inspected a number

of alternative sites and had reinspected the facility under

consideration by the State Department of Education which is

located at 301 South Highland Drive. Representatives of the

Department of Education of the North Las Vegas community ac-

companied him on the inspection trip. The State Department

of Education has recommended the facility at 301 South High-

land Drive be leased and Dr. Donnelly reported that he con-

curred in the selection. He requested the concurrence of

the Board.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed the recommendation, noting that

there had been no further contact from the North Las Vegas

community following the inspection of alternative sites and

therefore it was assumed they did not wish to pursue an

alternate location.



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

without dissent that the Board concur in the selection of

the facility at 301 South Highland Drive as the location

for the Skill Training Center.



24. Candidates for Graduation



Chancellor Humphrey reported the following figures which

reflect the number of degrees awarded by the University of

Nevada System for the period July 1, 1969 through June 30,

1970:

President Miller and President Zorn presented the June list

of graduates from UNR and UNLV, as approved by the faculties

of each of the Colleges and by the Presidents. (List of

graduates filed with permanent minutes.)



25. Approval of Lease-Purchase in Excess of $5000



Chancellor Humphrey reported that Mr. Niels Anderson, Di-

rector of the Computing Center, has requested approval of

a lease-purchase agreement with American Data Systems, Inc.,

for the following:



Monthly Lease Price



2 ADS-448 AEM Modems $288.00

2 A81 Interface Cards 7.20

2 ADS-630 Multiplexors 132.00

4 A07 EIA Interface Cards 14.40

$441.60



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the Sigma 7 is available

to the University System by means of telephone lines, batch

terminals and time-share terminals located where needed.

A batch terminal and time-share terminals are installed at

UNLV. The equipment requested by Mr. Anderson for lease

is necessary for most efficient use of the terminal system

and will allow a single telephone line to serve 18 users

simultaneously and allows processing of batch jobs at the

same time.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the equipment request has

been approved by the Data Processing Policy and Planning

Board. He endorsed the request and recommended approval

by the Board.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



26. Admissions Policy for Applicants with Criminal Records or

Psychiatric Problems



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in September, 1969, the

Board adopted a policy statement on admission of applicants

with criminal records or psychiatric problems. This policy

statement was distributed as Faculty Policy Bulletin #69-8.

He noted that although the policy had been recommended to

the Board through administrative channels, it had not been

referred to the faculty. Subsequent to its adoption, UNR

and UNLV Faculty Senates reviewed the policy statement and

recommended that it be rescinded and a substitute policy

adopted. This recommendation had been endorsed and present-

ed to the Board for consideration at its May meeting. At

that time, he noted, the Board tabled the matter, instruct-

ing that it be submitted to the Attorney General for legal

review. During the course of his review the Attorney Gen-

eral had requested advice from Warden Carl Hocker, Nevada

State Prison, and Dr. Robert J. Mc Allister, Superintendent,

Nevada State Hospital. The Attorney General's response, to-

gether with the letters of advice from Warden Hocker and Dr.

Mc Allister, were transmitted with the agenda and are filed

with permanent minutes identified as Ref. O and Ref. P.



Chancellor Humphrey also recalled that the Regents had ex-

pressed concern over the proposed deletion of the question

pertaining to prior arrests and the complete elimination of

admission assistance and counseling for students who had

been hospitalized for psychiatric treatment. The desirabil-

ity of separating the regulation for the two groups was

understood. He recommended that this matter be referred to

the Faculty Senates with the request that the reservations

expressed by the Regents, and the opinions of the Attorney

General, Warden Hocker and Dr. Mc Allister be considered.

The Presidents concurred in the recommendation.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



27. Further Revision of Time Payment Policy



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in June the Board adopted

a new policy for time payment of fees, tuition and board

and room charges which would allow for two substantially

equal payments; the first upon registration and the second

by Friday of the 5th week of instruction, with a grace

period of 5 working days. Non-payment of the second in-

stallment will result in cancellation of registration. Mr.

Humphrey reported that President Zorn and President Miller

have recommended that the present time payment fee of $3

for time payments of less than $150 and $5 for time payments

of $150 or more be discontinued, but that the fee of $1 per

day for payment during the grace period be continued. Mr.

Humphrey endorsed the request and recommended approval by

the Board.



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

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



28. Revenue Bond Resolutions



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the June meeting the

Board had approved a negotiated sale of $3.5 million of

revenue bonds to finance construction of the College of

Education building, UNLV and the Physical Science, Phase

II, UNR. He reported that the sale had been successful

and appropriate resolutions had been prepared by Dawson,

Nagel, Sherman and Howard, bond attorneys, for adoption

by the Board to formally approve the sale.



Mr. Humphrey noted that a problem had arisen during the

review of the resolution concerning the Education build-

ing, UNLV, and requested Mr. Mark Dawson, Budget Officer,

to comment.



Mr. Dawson explained the procedure followed in estimating

revenue, noting that it has been determined that UNLV

needs $525,000 to provide the necessary 125% of coverage

and is short that amount by $63,000. In order to accom-

modate this situation, Mr. Dawson suggested either of the

following three alternatives:



(1) Assess $3 per credit capital improvement fee to all

UNLV students in self-supporting programs (i. e.,

Evening Division and Summer School);



(2) Raise the fees for full-time regular students; or



(3) Wait a year to sell the bonds.



President Zorn said he did not believe that UNLV could af-

ford to delay a year. He suggested that of the 3 alter-

natives, it would be preferable to assess the $3 per credit

fee to Summer Session and Evening Division students. He

noted that a capital improvement fee is assessed all other

students, including part-time day students, and this would

have the effect of equalizing the burden. Chancellor

Humphrey agreed with this alternative and recommended that

the assessment to Evening Division students become effec-

tive Fall, 1970 and to Summer Session students in Summer,

1971.



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

out dissent that the Evening Division students at UNLV be

assessed $3 per credit capital improvement fee, effective

Fall, 1970 and Summer Session students be assessed a simi-

lar fee effective Summer, 1971.



Mr. Dawson noted that this action by the Board will require

the resolution to be amended as follows: The last two

paragraphs of Section (69) beginning page 42 should be

changed to read as follows:



The designated Capital Improvement Fee now consists

of $42 per academic semester for each full-time stu-

dent; and $3 per credit for each part-time day student

and Evening Division student for any attendance at the

University of Nevada, Las Vegas, for the regular aca-

demic year of two semesters; and $3 per credit hour

for each Summer Session student. A "full-time student"

course in any semester consists of at least nine (9)

credit hours, and a "part-time day student" course in

any semester consist of not more than eight (8) course

hours.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the amendment

and adoption of Resolution #70-3.



RESOLUTION NO. 70-3



A resolution authorizing the issuance by the Board of

Regents of the University of Nevada of the University's

obligations designated as the "University of Nevada,

Las Vegas, Student Fees Revenue Bonds, Series August 1,

1970", in the principal amount of $1,600,000, for the

purpose of defraying wholly or in part the cost of con-

structing and otherwise acquiring for the University a

College of Education building on the Campus of the

University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and acquiring euipment

and furnishing therefor and other appurtenances relat-

ing thereto; providing the form, terms and conditions

of the bonds, the manner of their execution, the method

of their payment and the security therefor; providing

for the disposition of revenues derived from certain

fees and other charges from students using or being

served by, or having the right to use or to be served

by, the Student Union building facilities at the Uni-

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

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted as

amended.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the resolution for the reve-

nue bonds for the Physical Science, Phase II, had been re-

ceived too late for adequate staff review. He recommended

its adoption subject to review by the Chancellor's Office.



RESOLUTION NO. 70-4



A resolution authorizing the issuance by the Board of

Regents of the University of Nevada of the University's

obligations designated as the "University of Nevada,

Reno, Capital Improvement Fee Revenue Bonds, Series

August 1, 1970", in the principal amount of $1,900,000,

for the purpose of defraying wholly or in part the cost

of constructing and otherwise acquiring for the Univer-

sity Chemistry and Lecture buildings of the Physical

Science Building Project, Phase II, on the Campus of

the University of Nevada, Reno, and acquiring equipment

and furnishing therefor and other appurtenances relat-

ing thereto; providing the form, terms and conditions

of the bonds, the manner of their execution, the method

of their payment and the security therefor; providing

for the disposition of revenues derived from certain

fees and other charges from students attending the

University of Nevada, Reno, and from other facilities

of the University; prescribing other details concerning

such bonds and such facilities, including but not limit-

ed to covenants and agreements in connection therewith;

ratifying action heretofore taken toward acquiring such

Chemistry and Lecture building facilities and issuing

such bonds; providing other details relating thereto;

and repealing all resolutions in conflict herewith.



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

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted.



The meeting adjourned for lunch with an Executive Session to

follow immediately. The regular session reconvened at 2:45

P.M. with all Regents and staff present as at the morning ses-

sion.



Upon motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, the two

following items were added to the agenda:



29. Valley Road Farm Condemnation



Chancellor Humphrey reported that for minute purposes he

wished to report on the progress of the Valley Road Farm

condemnation proceedings. He noted that the legal action

involving the condemnation by the State Highway Department

of 8.6 acres of Valley Road Field Laboratory has been

completed. The District Court ruled that this is special

purpose property and that the Board of Regents is under a

duty to replace the facility being taken. Chancellor

Humphrey further reported that the trial to determine the

value of the property, based on the concept of special

purposes, is scheduled for August 31, 1970.



30. Bank Signature Authority, ECC



Dr. Donnelly requested the following signature authority

for Elko Community College bank accounts:



Nevada National Bank - Elko Branch



Petty Cash Account Elmer Kuntz

(Imprest Fund - $500 Hobert Sturn

reimbursed from UNR Sue Ballew

Revolving Fund)



Depository Account Henry Hattori

Edward Pine

Dan Pease



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



31. 1971-73 Biennial Budget Request



Chancellor Humphrey opened the discussion on the 1971-73

Biennial Budget by noting that the final budget would not

be submitted until August after which it would be due, by

law, in the Governor's Office by September 1. He referred

to the document transmitted with the agenda, noting that it

was a draft and a summary of requests received from the four

Divisions and that it explained the methods used in develop-

ing the requests. Chancellor Humphrey stated that it was

considered desirable for the Board to have an opportunity

for review of the budget in its preliminary stages. Hope-

fuly, this review would then make it easier to digest the

completed document in August. He also pointed out that

modifications to the document may be agreed upon by the

Administration. If agreement is not reached, the Division

request and the Chancellor's recommendation will be pre-

sented in August.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the draft document, following

the format of the document itself (document is on file in

Chancellor's Office). He noted that the requests for

1971-73, which have not been adjusted or cut, totals

$74,894,477, an increase of $33,858,920 or 81.3% over the

present biennium.



Chancellor Humphrey also reviewed the resources required to

finance the 1971-73 budget request, noting that if the same

rate of support from student fees and tuition were to be

maintained in 1971-73 as in the current biennium, a 35%

increase would have to be effected by some combination of

advance in registration fees and tuition.



Chairman Bell requested comments from the other officers.

President Miller stated that he had nothing to add to the

presentation. President Zorn also declined comment but

agreed to respond to questions as did Directors Ward and

Donnelly.



In the discussions following there were expressions of

concern over the size of the budget request and the Uni-

versity's chances of having this kind of increase favorably

considered by the Legislature.



Mr. Jacobsen suggested that it would be difficult to support

an 81% increase in the budget with a projected increase in

enrollment of 14.5% at UNR and 30% at UNLV.



Dr. Anderson agreed, stating that, assuming each request to

the document could be justified, it was not realistic to

expect the Legislature to approve it totally and the Re-

gents should be prepared to do some adjusting. Mrs.

Knudtsen agreed.



Chancellor Humphrey emphasized again that this is a summary

of requests and, therefore, is different from the final rec-

ommendations which will be submitted in August. He also

noted the inclusion of new programs, such as the two new

Community Colleges, within the totals. Responding to a

question as to how much of an appropriation the University

could except, Chancellor Humphrey stated that he had been

authorized by Mr. Howard Barrett, Director of the Depart-

ment of Administration, to release his very tentative esti-

mates of revenue for the coming biennium. Mr. Barrett has

estimated that the general fund revenue will increase from

$188 million in the current biennium to $218 million in

the 1971-73 biennium. Therefore, Mr. Humphrey stated, if

the University continues to realize the same level of sup-

port from the Legislature as it did in the current biennium

(17.5% of the total general fund revenue), and if other

revenue increases proportionately, the University could

expect an increase of approxiately $6.5 million in its

work program for 1971-73.



Mr. Humphrey also stated that the officers of the Univer-

sity fully understand that the outlook for an 81% increase

in funding from the Legislature is not optimistic. He

pointed out that this request does not include his recom-

mendation and does not reflect the final recommendation of

the Presidents or Directors in some instances because they

have transmitted their requests without benefit of knowing

what is occurring in other Divisions and are now in a

position to modify their requests.



Mr. Humphrey closed his comments by stating that he be-

lieved the purpose of asking for this preliminary review

had been served, and a revised document would be available

at the August meeting which would reflect the final rec-

ommendation for 1971-73 budget request.



The meeting adjourned at 3:30 P.M.
