dent Moyer that Dr. Anthony Saville, Dean of the College

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

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted.



14. Administrative Reorganization



Chancellor Humphrey noted the presence of faculty members

of the Ad Hoc Committee on Administrative Reorganization

who had been invited to participate in the discussion of

the Committee's recommendations. Present from U. N. were

Professor Charles Ross and Dr. Gary Peltier (Dr. Peltier

was present as an alternate for Dr. Eleanore Bushnell).

Present from N. S. U. were Dr. Richard Byrns, Dr. Robert

Smith and Dr. William Thomas White, Jr.



The discussion following concerning the recommendations of

the Committee (Ref. R of agenda material); a minority

report concerning DRI (Ref. S); a statement from President

Miller concerning implementation of the Committee recom-

mendations (Ref. T); and a proposal for organization of a

University Policy Board of Wildlands Research Coordination

(Ref. Q). In addition, the Chancellor's comments and

recommendations were discussed (Ref. U). (All references

are filed with permanent minutes.)



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Committee's

proposal concerning on-DRI research units be approved

and implemented as follows:



The Bureau of Governmental Research, Bureau of

Business and Economic Research, Nevada Bureau of

Mines, Nevada Mining Analytical Laboratory,

Agricultural Experiment Station and Agricultural

Extension Service report to President Miller, U. N.,

effective immediately.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that the Committee was aware

of the reservations held by Dean Dale W. Bohmont concern-

ing the above recommendation as it affected the College

of Agriculture and invited him to speak.



Dean Bohmont spoke of the success of the statewide programs

of the College of Agriculture and stated that although he

would serve under any structure the Regents desired, he

preferred to continue the present practice of reporting to

the Chancellor for the Extension Service and Experiment

Station programs. He distributed materials concerning the

activities of the programs under his supervision, empha-

sizing the statewide importance and nature of the programs.



Dean Bohmont stated that the University of Nevada presently

has a workable system for the administration of the Agri-

cultural programs and proposed that he continue to report

to the President, U. N. for the teaching function of the

College and to the Chancellor for the Cooperative Extension

and Experiment Station functions. He questioned the wisdom

of tampering with a system that has produced a good quality

program.



President Miller stated that he would reject the assump-

tion that because a program administratively reports to a

Campus it would either automatically become a regional

program or in any way endanger the quality of that program.

He added that the present administrative structure is in-

tolerable and urged that the entire College of Agriculture

be assigned either to the Chancellor or to the President.



President Moyer stated that he supported the recommendation

of the Committee and of the Chancellor that the non-DRI

research and extension programs become the responsibility

of a President rather than to continue to have split

supervision.



Mrs. Knudtsen stated that it appeared most awkward to have

a part of a division or person reporting to more than one

officer.



Dr. Anderson suggested that the portion of the recommenda-

tion concerning Agriculture be deferred and the Regents

proceed with the balance of the proposal.



President Miller and President Moyer both expressed support

of the Committee's recommendation concerning the disposi-

tion of the General University Extension programs and recom-

mended the Chancellor's recommendation for implementation

be adopted.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that, in his opinion, the present

administrative structure of the College of Agriculture

whereby the teaching functions report to President Miller

and the research and extension functions report to the

Chancellor, leaves a lot to be desired and urged that the

new organizational structure be adopted as proposed, with

a review in one year to determine the success of the

change.



Mrs. Knudtsen stated that since we have a University System

designed to take care of and administer statewide functions,

those functions which are truly statewide should be retained

and should be administered by the Chancellor.



Mr. Hug stated that he felt the President is in an unten-

able position by being required to supervise personnel for

their teaching responsibilities but not for the other 2/3

of their function. He added that he also did not feel that

a statewide program had to be operated by the Chancellor

simply because it had statewide responsibilities.



Mr. Seeliger said that because of the implications of such

a decision, he did not wish to vote on the matter at this

time. He requested more time to study the matter of

Cooperative Extension and Experiment Station programs.



Mr. Hug noted that the Committee, the Presidents and the

Chancellor had all made the same recommendation; i. e.,

that the programs under discussion become the responsi-

bility of the President of the University of Nevada.



Dr. White moved approval of the Chancellor's recommenda-

tion except for the portion concerning Agriculture and

further moved that the present organizational structure

be continued until Dean Bohmont's return from leave of

absence. Motion was seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen.



Mr. Hug moved to amend the motion to leave Agriculture

in the recommendation and to approve as such. Motion to

amend was not seconded.



Mr. Hug then moved to amend the motion to approve the

Chancellor's recommendation with the exception of reference

to the Agricultural Experiment Station and the Agricultural

Extension Service and that the organizational structure for

these two programs be discussed at a later date. Motion to

amend was seconded by Mr. Seeliger.



Motion to amend received 4 affirmative votes and 4 negative

votes. Dr. Anderson cast an affirmative vote to break the

tie.



Motion as amended carried with Regent White opposing.



Discussion of the Chancellor's recommendations contained

in Ref. U continued.



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

out dissent that the following recommendations be approved:



(1) The following programs, now a part of General Univer-

sity Extension, now become part of the U. N.



(a) Civil Defense Education

(b) Community Development

(c) Correctional Personnel Training

(d) Continuing Education

(e) Correspondence Division

(f) Industrial Extension Service

(g) Off-Campus Programs

(h) Evening Division, U. N.



(2) President Miller be requested to recommend, for con-

sideration of the Chancellor and the Board of Regents,

the organizational structure and name for these and re-

lated activities.



(3) NSU be authorized to develop organizational capacity

to administer Continuing Education and Off-Campus

programs at NSU.



(4) The Chancellor and the two Presidents develop for

consideration by the Board of Regents a policy state-

ment to provide for an efficient division of the Off-

Campus program responsibility between the U. N. and

N. S. U.



(5) The position of "Director, Federal Projects" (David

C. Wilkins, incumbent) which is presently located in

General University Extension, be retitled Federal

Projects Officer and transferred to the Office of the

Chancellor. This position has been responsible for

assisting in and stimulating the development of

Federal grant and contract proposals within GUE and

on the two Campuses. It is proposed that these duties

be continued but expanded to include more service for

both Universities and study given to the assumption

by this position of responsibility for Title I grants,

HEFA of 1963 and Title VI, a HEA of 1965. Funding for

this position will not change until July 1969.



Chancellor Humphrey continued with his recommendations con-

cerning reorganization, stating that he believes the Com-

mittee proposal for DRI was feasible since basically it

recommends continuance of the status quo as far as DRI's

position within the System administrative structure. He

noted that the following changes in procedure would be

necessary and recommended them for approval.



(1) U. N. and N. S. U. should be free to develop research

projects within their administrative framework with-

out consultation with D. R. I.; however, they could

still cooperate with D. R. I. on any and all projects

where there was mutual agreement.



(2) With the new biennial budget (i. e., July 1969) DRI

should receive all indirect cost monies paid on DRI

projects; however, DRI should also fully reimburse

the appropriate Campus budget for all services re-

ceived.



(3) Faculty could continue to receive joint appointments

(i. e., DRI and either U. N. or N. S. U. or all three)

provided the salary, fringe benefit expense and other

costs are appropriately divided and the appointment

is approved by the Head of each unit involved.



Mr. Humphrey recommended that:



(1) The University Code and current practice be examined

to determine what changes in either Code or practice

are necessary to accommodate the DRI organization.

For example, tenure provisions, titles of professional

positions, service on U. N. Senate, etc.



(2) The Nevada Archaeological Survey become a part of the

U. N., effective immediately, provided however, that

the funding arrangements for 1968-69 not be altered.

This change in administrative control was requested

by Dr. Robert Stephenson and agreed to by Dr. Squires

on behalf of DRI and President Miller on behalf of

U. N.



(3) The DRI and other appropriate officers and groups

within the System (e. g., CWNAS Board, President

Miller) review the Center for Western North American

Studies and make recommendations concerning its con-

tinuance in DRI or alternatives.



Chancellor Humphrey then requested Vice Chancellor Mordy

to comment on the above recommendations.



Professor Mordy stated that the programs and structure of

DRI were still pretty much as he had authored it when he

came to the University. He noted that the recommendation

for a change in the DRI structure was made only after other

changes in the University System were proposed. He then

requested Dr. Squires to comment.



Dr. Squires spoke of the enabling legislation for DRI,

noting that in his opinion it has been wrongly interpreted

to mean only bricks and mortar of the Reno Campus. He said

that he felt it really meant the "higher education of the

State of Nevada". He spoke of the minority report which

proposed that DRI report to the President of the University

of Nevada and stated that he did not agree with the pro-

posal.



Dr. Squires added that the experience of DRI reveals that

it is playing an important role under the existing struc-

ture, noting that joint appointments which are presently

possible are generally useful contributions. He asked, if

the DRI reports to one President, can it serve its role on

the other Campus? Dr. Squires also asked why make a change

when it is working well. He recommended approval of the

Committee's recommendation.



President Miller stated that he wished the record to show

that the recommendation of the minority group was strictly

internal. He suggested that Dr. Peltier be invited to

speak on behalf of the minority report.



Dr. Peltier stated that it appeared quite logical for DRI

to report to the President of the U. N. The minority, he

said, did not feel that DRI differed from any other Depart-

ment within the University. He observed that the Chancel-

lor's responsibilities are not to administer a division of

the University but to serve as a coordinator. He expressed

concern that approval of the Committee recommendation would

indeed create a 3rd division of the University and thereby

introduce unnecessary competititon for research funds

among 3 research organizations.



Professor Mordy stated that increase in number of research

organizations within the University has been a primary

desire of his since coming to the University. He noted

that research and development in the State of Nevada has

become its second industry. He said that in his opinion

the University stands to benefit from any new research

activities.



President Moyer expressed support of the majority report.

He stated that he felt NSU has conceded major portions of

the University to U. N., but regards DRI has serving both

Campuses. He said that many things DRI does can be of

benefit to NSU and it would be a great loss if NSU did not

have access to DRI.



Professor Ross expressed concern that removal of DRI from

U. N. would leave a vacuum on that Campus. He said it

would force Reno to start from scratch in development of

a research organization. He noted that the support avail-

able through research planning committees has created a

vital need for further research money and he feared that

approval of the proposal would withdraw that support. He

added that the U. N. needs DRI or a similar structure.



Dr. Thomas White spoke of the narrowness of DRI in that it

is not presently serving in the Social Sciences and Humani-

ties field and said that he believed that Reno needs some-

thing other than DRI. He added that he believed that even

if DRI were assigned to Reno there would still be a need

in these areas.



Professor Mordy said he believed that much more has been

given to the University by DRI than has been taken. He

recommended that the Regents leave the general development

of DRI as much as possible to the people who are responsi-

ble for its growth.



Dr. Lombardi expressed approval of the Chancellor's recom-

mendation for implementation of the Ad Hoc Committee's

proposal.



Professor Mordy spoke of the timing for the transition to

a self-supporting organization and it was agreed that the

transition must be well-coordinated and the assignment of

overhead funds to DRI could occur only at the same time

that DRI begin to pay for services rendered by the Reno

Campus.



Dr. Peltier noted that the minority report was not intended

to be anti-DRI. He stated that the faculty are proud of

the fact that DRI has become embedded into the teaching

program. The recommendation was not designed to crimp the

activities of DRI but to avoid costly competition within

the State. He stated that those who signed the minority

report had hoped that DRI could be used as a basis of a

research program at Reno, leaving NSU free to establish

its own research program.



Dr. Smith agreed that each Campus should be free to develop

its own research activities but stated that both Reno and

Las Vegas need DRI and placing it within the UN organiza-

tion would make it inaccessible to NSU. He added that it

seemed important to keep channels between the 3 organiza-

tions open.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed his recommendation and added

that a study should be made as to what services would be

provided by the University of Nevada to DRI.



Professor Mordy stated that it was also important that DRI

be free to determine whether or not it used University of

Nevada services.



Dr. Lombardi moved, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, that the

Board approve the recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee

and the Chancellor's recommendations for implementation.

Motion carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned at 6:00 P.M. to be reconvened on Saturday

morning.



The regular meeting of the Board reconvened on Saturday, July 13,

1968 at 8:45 A.M. in the President's Office, NSU. All members

who were present on Friday were again in attendance.



15. Dr. Anderson read a statement concerning the naming of the

student activities building at NSU in honor of President

Moyer. The statement read as follows:



Because of the genuine interest of the NSU student body,

as expressed in resolutions adopted by the CSNS student

government, and in recognition of his significant con-

tributions to the growth and development of Nevada

Southern University, the Board of Regents of the Uni-

versity of Nevada System hereby changes the name of

the Campus Student Union to the "Donald C. Moyer

Campus Student Union" building.



16. The Board resumed discussion of the reorganization of the

Central Administration which had begun the day before.



Referring to a recommendation of the Ad Hoc Committee

(Para. 2, Ref. R), Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

the Data Processing Center Users Board become a University

of Nevada Campus Board and the membership be appointed by

the President of UN.



Mr. Seeliger asked about the status of the Sigma 7. Chan-

cellor Humphrey stated that he had received a request from

the Data Processing Center Users Board that the Computer

Center be removed from DRI to U. N. Further discussion

has been postponed, he said, until the basic decision was

made concerning DRI. He added that he would wish to come

back to the Board at a later date concerning the administra-

tion of the Center. He noted that as far as the operation

of the Sigma 7 is concerned, he would prefer to have Vice

Chancellor Mordy or Dr. Squires respond.



Dr. Squires stated that they had begun a 30-day test period

in June. He noted that the research programs were run

satisfactorily but the administrative programs were not.

He added that the Center has received a 30-day extension

of the test period before the rental begins.



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

without dissent that the Data Processing Center Users Board

become a U. N. Campus Board with the members to be appoint-

ed by President Miller.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the recommendation of the Ad

Hoc Committee concerning the Educational Radio and Tele-

vision Board; i. e., that this Board also become a U. N.

Campus Board. He endorsed the recommendation and re-

quested approval by the Board, adding that he would assume

that NSU will have a similar board; however, it would not

preclude cooperation between the two Campuses.



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

without dissent that the Educational Radio and Television

Board become a UN Campus Board with the members to be

appointed by President Miller.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the recommendation of the

Committee concerning the Radiological Safety Board; i. e.,

that the Board remain statewide, reporting to the Chan-

cellor, with consideration given to establishing sub-

committees on each Campus. Mr. Humphrey endorsed the

Committee's recommendation and requested approval by the

Board.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the recommendation be approved as

presented.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the recommendation of the

Committee concerning the University Press Advisory Board

and endorsed the Committee's recommendation that this

Board remain statewide, reporting to the Chancellor.



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

without dissent that the recommendation be approved as

presented.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that because consideration of the

Agricultural Extension and Experiment Station programs was

deferred, he would suggest that further discussion of the

4-H Camp Advisory Committee also be deferred.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that consideration of the 4-H Camp Advisory Com-

mittee be deferred.



Chancellor Humphrey spoke of the proposal by the Whittell

Forest and Wildlife Control Board for the establishment

of a policy board for all University wildlands research

areas (Ref. R of agenda).



Both President Miller and President Moyer support the

recommendation of the Committee that such a statewide

policy board be established. Chancellor Humphrey endorsed

the recommendation and made the following recommendations

for implementation:



(1) That a statewide policy board reporting to the Chan-

cellor be established for all University wildlands

research areas;



(2) That the membership of this board be appointed by the

Chancellor, and the Presidents requested to nominate

proposed members from their Campuses;



(3) That administrative responsibility for each area

developed be separately determined at an appropriate

time; and



(4) That the Whittell Forest (Little Valley) be assigned

to UN and President Miller make appropriate arrange-

ments for administering and utilizing the area.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



17. Performing Arts Center



President Moyer presented a review of the Performing Arts

Center project as outlined in memoranda from Chancellor

Humphrey to the Board of Regents (filed with permanent

minutes).



In reference to the recommendation contained in Chancellor

Humphrey's memorandum that President Moyer contact all

donors and request either pre-payment of their pledges or

execution of non-interest bearing negotiable promissory

notes, President Moyer stated that Mr. Wing Fong had con-

tacted local banks and had some statements to make in that

regard.



Mr. Fong spoke of his contacts with local banking houses

and expressed reluctance to go back to the donors and ask

for promissory notes. Mr. Mc Dermott agreed that it might

not be appropriate since such a note would show on a

financial statement and a pledge would not.



There was additional discussion concerning the appropriate

way to proceed in converting the pledges to negotiable in-

struments and there was consensus that the Administration

(Chancellor Humphrey and President Moyer) should contact

the bankers in the southern Nevada area concerning this

matter. Mr. Mc Dermott suggested that this Committee be

authorized only to get information to bring back to the

next Board meeting. There was consensus that this was

appropriate.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that preliminary planning stages

could still proceed and recommended the following steps:



(1) Pledge up to $215,000 of cash from the NSU Capital

Improvement Fee Fund for this project provided the

residence hall, dining commons project bond retire-

ment fund does not need subsidy.



(2) Instruct the Administration to proceed to negotiate in

the conversion of the pledges, reporting back to the

Board.



(3) Urge the Planning Board to enter into a contract with

the architect and go as far as the preliminary plans.



(4) Assume 62,500 sq. ft. of useable facility and a $2.3

million total cost.



(5) Request Vice President Baepler to assume responsibility

for coordinating revision of the scope of the project.



In reference to Item (5), President Moyer stated that he

was prepared to make sure the faculty users group is agree-

able to the revised scope before he leaves.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



Chancellor Humphrey then recommended that the Board author-

ize the Administration to proceed with preparations for a

bond sale for the $930,000 authorized by the 1967 Special

Session of the Legislature, to be completed sometime before

January 1, 1969. He noted that the market for College

revenue bonds is high and the probability of selling the

issue at 6% or less is doubtful. However, he recommended

that an attempt be made and, if unsuccessful, a decision

made to either wait the market out or go to the Legislature

for a change in the University Securities Law.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissent that the bond sale attempt be made as recom-

mended.



18. Nevada Southern University Land Foundation



Chancellor Humphrey recommended adoption by the Board of a

resolution designed to correct an error in the description

of land in the original indenture adopted by the Board at

an earlier meeting.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the following resolution be adopted

as recommended.



RESOLUTION #68-10

HEREWITH.



19. Zoning Request, NSU



President Moyer stated that he had received a copy of a

notice of hearing regarding a request for a change in

zoning on the south side of Tropicana from R-1 to C-1.

President Moyer recommended the University not oppose the

rezoning request but request the Clark County Commissioners

to impose regulations which would require high quality

construction in good taste so as not to detract from the

community and be compatible with the Campus, and to provide

adequate parking.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



President Moyer referred to a master plan for the area

which has been presented to the Clark County Commission,

noting that the plan offers several alternatives to the

development in the front of the Campus. He stated that

the plan has not yet been adopted by the County Commis-

sioners and suggested that the University study the plans

and make recommendations to the Commission.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

without dissent that a Committee of Regents be appointed

and authorized to discuss total planning with the Com-

missioners.



20. Reports on Improving Instructional Excellence, UN



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that the Board had requested

that reports be filed concerning activities in the various

Colleges directed toward improvement of instruction, add-

ing that NSU reports had been received and discussed by

the Board at its meeting on May 11.



President Miller referred to reports from each of the UN

Colleges which had been forwarded with the agenda. There

was consensus by the Board that the reports were thorough

and informative. Special note was taken of the fact, as

revealed by the reports, that each College or School em-

ploys somewhat different procedures in evaluating the

effectiveness of its teaching personnel and programs.

There was agreement that this was desirable.



21. Requirement for Medical Examinations of Student Teachers



President Miller noted that on May 11 the Board considered

a proposal that physical examinations be required of all

student teachers prior to their assignment to a public

school. Action was deferred pending additional information,

specifically the type and extent of health examination to

be required. President Miller referred to a Health Certifi-

cate used by the State of Nevada, Department of Education,

Bureau of Certification, and recommended that the health

examinations of student teachers meet the requirements of

the State Certificate (copy filed with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the President's

recommendation for University of Nevada student teachers,

effective with the Fall semester, 1968-69.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



22. Change in Titles of Associate Degree Programs, College of

Agriculture, U. N.



President Miller presented a request from the College of

Agriculture that its present Associate of Arts in Home

Economics degree title be changed so that the 3 programs

now offered in Home Economics might be clearly identified.

The 3 programs involved would be as follows:



Associate of Science in Food Service Management

Associate of Arts in Fashion Trades

Associate of Arts in Pre-Kindergarten Education



Chancellor Humphrey concurred in the proposal and recom-

mended approval, effective immediately.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



23. Control of Tax Free Alcohol



Chancellor Humphrey recommended adoption of the following

resolution to effect a change in the signature authority

for the control over use of tax free alcohol at UN.



RESOLUTION #68-9



RESOLVED, that Jim Jeffers, Jr., Director of Purchas-

ing, University of Nevada, Reno, Nevada, be and hereby

is authorized to sign all forms and monthly reports

in connection with the permission of this University

to use tax free alcohol for scientific and mechanical

purposes in the Chemical Laboratory, for medicinal

use and in the treatment of patients in the Hospital

and for research, and that a copy of this Resolution

be forwarded to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division

of the U. S. Treasury Department, Internal Revenue

Service at San Francisco, California.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted.



24. Plant and Property, UN



A. Mr. Pine reported that the State Planning Board has

recommended that Vhay & Ferrari be paid $8106.44 for

the preparation of plans for the lecture-demonstration

unit of the Mack Social Science building (not built

because of insufficient funds). Mr. Pine recommended

that after the sound system for the building is pur-

chased, at an estimated cost of $7000+-, the surplus

remaining in the construction account (approximately

$7200) be used to pave the parking area of the Physical

Science Complex.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



B. Mr. Pine reported that the Nevada Fish & Game Commis-

sion had requested permission to place a 24' x 32'

Butler type building on the northwest corner of land

leased from the University at Valley Road Farm. He

stated that, in his judgment, the structure will conform

to the present Fish & Game building and will be similar

to a greenhouse building recently constructed nearby

by the University of Nevada.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, car-

ried without dissent that the request be granted.



C. Stead Campus - Mr. Pine reported that on June 27, 1968

the Office of Surplus Property Utilization, HEW, had

delivered to the University a deed for 327.887 acres

of land and 48 buildings at Stead. He noted that the

land and improvements become the University's exclusive

property without restriction at the end of 20 years of

approved use.



President Miller stated that this facility is a remark-

ably fine acquisition for the University System. He

noted that it has already received extensive use by

various components of the University and provides land

for additional expansion. He added that he would like

to publicly express appreciation to the people who have

worked in acquiring the area. He specifically noted

the efforts of Dean James T. Anderson and Mr. Edward

L. Pine.



Professor Mordy noted that it is not generally known,

even in the local area, that the total expenditures

at Stead are rapidly approaching $10 million, much

of which is going into the Reno economy.



D. Progress Report on UN Physical Plant Projects



Mr. Pine presented for information a progress report

for the University of Nevada and one prepared by the

State Planning Board for projects under their super-

vision (both reports filed in permanent minutes).



Mr. Pine noted that HEW has now given authorization to

bid the Physical Science Complex, Phase I, and the

information has been transmitted to the State Planning

Board. He added that the State Planning Board has

indicated that they wish to release the Legislative

Building Project first which will delay occupancy of

the Physical Science building until Spring 1971 in-

stead of the anticipated Fall of 1970. He requested

the Board to authorize the Administration to request

the State Planning Board to reverse the order and

release the University project first on the grounds

that this reverse order would not delay the Legisla-

tive Building but would allow the University to main-

tain its schedule.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that Mr. Pine's recommendation be ap-

proved and the Administration authorized to make the

necessary approaches to the State Planning Board.



25. Award of Bids in Excess of $5000 (U. N.)

and opened on July 12, 1968 for carpeting in various

student areas on the UN Campus:



Armanko's Office Supply (Herculon NAS) $25,740.55

Dain's Rug & Carpet (Autron, as specfd.) 27,549.34

Key Carpet Co. 27,730.81

Con Rae Interiors (as specified) 41,440.52



Mr. Pine further noted that two bids were received

without bid bonds, from Carson Furniture and Dohrmann

Hotel Supply, and were rejected.



Mr. Pine stated that Key Carpet had challenged the bid

of Armanko Office Supply, based on the fact that their

contractor's license was not issued for the installa-

tion of carpet. The State Contractor's Board had also

informed the University that the license of Armanko's

permits only the installation of institutional equip-

ment.



Mr. Pine recommended that the bid of Dain's Rug & Carpet

Co. be accepted and the contract awarded in the amount

of $27,549.34 with the concurrence of the Attorney

General's Office.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

carried without dissent that the above recommendation

be approved and the contract awarded to Dain's Rug &

Carpet Co. in the amount of $27,549.34.



26. Proposal for Naming of Buildings at Stead Campus



President Miller presented recommendations from a Faculty

Committee appointed to develop a proposal for the naming

of buildings on the Stead Campus. He reported that the

Committee had recommended that administrative and instruc-

tional buildings be named for Nevada representatives to

Congress and that residence halls be named after Nevada

lakes. He presented a list of proposed names for build-

ings under University control at the Stead Campus and recom-

mended its approval.



By consensus, this proposal was deferred until a subsequent

meeting to permit more time to review the proposed names.



27. Change in Meeting Dates



Chancellor Humphrey reported that 9 affirmative responses

had been received to a mail request that the August meeting

dates be changed to August 29-30, 1968. He recommended

formal confirmation of the change.



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

without dissent that the change in dates as approved by

mail ballot be formally confirmed for the record.



Chancellor Humphrey also recommended that the schedule of

meetings for the remainder of the year be reconsidered in

view of the late August meeting. He suggested the Board

consider deleting the September meeting and moving the

October meeting to October 4-5 to permit staff to attend

the American Council on Education meeting in Denver on

October 9-11. He recommended the November and December

schedule be maintained.



Following discussion of the proposed meeting dates, it was

moved by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, that the

schedule for the remainder of the year be established as

follows:



August 29-30 University of Nevada

October 4-5 Nevada Southern University

November 8-9 University of Nevada

December 13-14 Nevada Southern University



It was also agreed that Vice Chancellor Mordy would pursue

the possibility of arranging for the annual meeting of the

National Advisory Board to the Desert Research Institute

to be held in Las Vegas during the October 4-5 meeting of

the Board of Regents and that the possibility of changing

the November date would be explored by Chancellor Humphrey.



28. Designation of Independent Auditors for Fiscal Year 1967-68



Mr. Humphrey recommended that the Board of Regents designate

the firm of Kafoury, Armstrong, Bernard and Bergstrom as

the independent auditors for fiscal year 1967-68.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



29. Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the U. N. and N. S. U.

Senates have both requested that the University Adminis-

tration and the Board of Regents seek legislation which

would make it possible for individual faculty to elect to

substitute a retirement plan from TIAA for the Public

Employees Retirement System of Nevada. Their request is

that the faculty have the option to join either system,

and if they choose TIAA the same premium be paid by the

University as is paid for participation in the State plan.

Presidents Miller and Moyer both endorsed the Senates'

proposals.



Mr. Humphrey recommended that this request be approved and

work begun on drafting necessary legislation and preparing

explanations for legislative use.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



30. Amendment to Policy on Fee Waivers for Professional Staff



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the Board of Regents had,

on April 28, 1962, upon recommendation of President Arm-

strong, and with the advice and approval of the Attorney

General, approved the granting of tuition and fee waivers

for professional staff and graduate assistants as a con-

dition of their employment contract, and an in-service

training waiver system for classified and technical em-

ployees. He further noted that amendments to that policy

have been approved at various times by the Board of Regents.



Mr. Humphrey submitted a revised policy statement on fee

waivers, reflecting all revisions required by previous

action of the Board, together with several amendments to

the policy suggested by the Coordinating Council. He

called particular attention to paragraph I. B. 1, recom-

mended by the Coordinating Council and an alternate para-

graph recommended by the Chancellor and concurred in by

the two Presidents.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the revised

statement with the alternate paragraph I. B. 1 (filed

with permanent minutes).



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

without dissent that the revised statement be adopted with

the alternate paragraph I. B. 1 incorporated.



31. Funds for Ad Hoc Committee on Administrative Reorganization



Chancellor Humphrey reported that in November, 1967, an ac-

count of $2500 was established to provide traval funds for

non-administrative members of the Ad Hoc Committee on

Administrative Reorganization. He noted that at that time

it was anticipated that the Committee would not remain

organized longer than January, 1968; however, it was re-

quested to continue and an additional $1991.73 is required

to pay Committee expenses.



He recommended a transfer of $1991.73 be made from the

Board of Regents Special Projects Fund (1-51-4056) and the

account closed. He further recommended that the Committee

be discharged with thanks.



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

without dissent that the transfer of funds be approved as

recommended and that the Committee be discharged with a

special note of commendation for its work.



32. 1969-71 Biennial Budget Method Review



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the 1969-71 budget request

would be presented to the Board in August. He added that

the use of program budget (or Program, Planning, Budgeting

Systems -- PPBS) justified the introduction and explanation

of certain procedures and presented a review to the Board

in preparation of their consideration of the budget re-

quest.



33. Chancellor's Report



A. Board of Regents Policy Manual - Mr. Humphrey noted

that the first draft of the policy manual was dis-

tributed to the Board of Regents several months ago.

He suggested that each of them review the manual and

write him concerning any comments they might have.

He would then bring back to them suggested modifications

or deletion of obsolete or outdated policy statements

and suggested drafts of missing policy statements.



By consensus, it was agreed that in addition to indi-

vidual study by the Regents, staff should review the

document for inconsistencies in the policy manual and

a meeting scheduled with Mr. Grant Davis.



B. Mr. Humphrey distributed copies of the revised By-Laws

of the Board of Regents, noting that it contained the

latest revisions adopted by the Board through June,

1968.



The meeting adjourned at 12:15 P.M.
