ent minutes). Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

Mr. Knudtsen moved approval of the admission to the agenda

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



4. State Planning Board Agreements



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of two agreements

with the State Planning Board whereby the Board of Regents

agrees to provide the non-appropriated funds for the

construction of the Physical Education facilities at UNR and

UNLV (agreements filed with permanent minutes, identified as

Ref. 4).



5. Estimative Budgets, UNS



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the Estimative

Budgets for 1971-72 as distributed with the agenda.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson,

carried without dissent.



6. Chapter 13, Title 4, Board of Regents Handbook



Chancellor Humphrey submitted a draft of Chapter 13, Title

4, of the Board of Regents Handbook, including general pol-

icy statements concerning assessment of fees which are sub-

ject to Board approval, together with detail concening cur-

rent fees and expenses. He noted that although the draft

did not contain new policy, reference dates of Board ap-

proval could not be traced for some statements. He recom-

mended that the Board reaffirm the policies reflected in

Ref. 6, and amended by Ref. 6A and 6B (all references filed

with permanent minutes) and that the dates of July 16-17,

1971 hereafter become the reference dates for those sec-

tions where a reference date is missing.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



7. Amendment of Board Policy



A. Chancellor Humphrey noted that Board of Regents policy

adopted November 11, 1967, directs that "all students

receiving a waiver of out-of-state tuition shall also be

granted a waiver of fees." (Such waivers are now called

"grants-in-aid".)



The Presidents and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

this provision be amemded to provide that a student

receiving a grant-in-aid for the payment of out-of-state

tuition may, at the discretion of the President or his

designee, also receive a grant-in-aid for the payment of

registration fees; however, such an award shall not be

automatic.



Mr. Hug moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

carried without dissent.



B. Chancellor Humphrey noted that in May, 1964, the Board

directed that "Recipients of in-state fee waivers who

reside outside the Reno-Las Vegas metropolitan areas

shall be given additional $150 which would be roughly

equivalent to the cost of a room in the University resi-

dence halls per semester and the additional expense of

board at the University rather than at home."



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that this provision has

never been implemented because of lack of funds. The

Presidents and the Chancellor recommended that this

action by the Board be rescinded and the policy codifi-

cation be deleted from the Board's Handbook.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Hug, carried without dissent.



8. Purchases in Excess of $5,000



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that authority be granted to

the Presidents for the period July 17 to September 10, to

approve purchases in excess of $5,000 which cannot conven-

iently wait until the September meeting.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval with the stipulation that a

report of all such purchases would be submitted to the Board

in September. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent.



9. Transfers from Contingency Reserve



Chancellor Humphrey reported the following transfers from

the Contingency Reserve of less than $2,000:



#349-UNR $609.84 from Continency Reserve to College of

Business Administration, Dean's Office Operating,

to provide funds for payment of accreditation

expenses.



#354-UNR $1,200 from Contingency Reserve to President's

Office Operating to cover $750 dues to the In-

stitute of European Studies and operating expen-

ses for the balance of the 1970-71 fiscal year.



10. Item Postponed from May Meeting



A. Administrative Procedures Related to Initial Employment

of Faculty.



B. Administrative Review of Faculty Member before Being

Granted Tenure.



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that these items were tabled at

the May meeting for consideration at the July meeting. He

noted that further discussion has occurred within the Chan-

cellor's Advisory Cabinet and it is the recommendation of

Presidents and the Chancellor that item be considered at a

later time in conjunction with revisions of the University

Code.



Mr. Morris moved approval of the recommendation. Motion

seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without dissent.



11. Schedule of the Committee of the Whole



Chancellor Humphrey reported items planned for presentation

at the July meeting of the Committee of the Whole were re-

scheduled, at President Miller's request, for the October

meeting.



12. Revision of the University Code



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that approximately three years

ago the Board of Regents requested the faculties of the Uni-

versity to work on a revision of the Code in order that it

might conform to the new System organization. There was

general agreement there would be a separate chapter for

each Division of the University and the chapter concerning a

Division would not be subject to review by other Divisions.

It was also understood there would be a chapter concern-

ing the System and System-Wide policies which would be sub-

ject to review by all Divisions. Final approval of the Code

would, of course, be the perogative of the Board of Regents.



Chancellor Humphrey noted material has now been received

from all four Division faculties and the Faculty of the Off-

ice of the Chancellor (material received from UNR had not,

he noted, had final approval from that faculty). Chancellor

Humphrey continued by noting that these separate documents

have been worked into a consolidated document identified as

"Draft No. 1A, June 11, 1971". Discussion of the draft doc-

ument has begun in the Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet and a

special meeting is scheduled for September 9, in Las Vegas,

to further review the material.



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that a great deal of work

needs to be done before this document is ready for consider-

ation by the Board; however, transmittal of the draft docu-

ment at this time will serve to inform the Board of the pro-

gress of the project and will give the individual Regent an

opportunity to review the material in its present form and

perhaps simplify the task of dealing with the document when

it is ready for consideration. Target date for presentation

of a document to the Board for action is December, 1971.



It is agreed that an informational agenda item on the pro-

gress of this revision would be desirable at the September

meeting.



13. UNR Graduates, June 1971



President Miller presented a list of 587 students approved

by the faculty of each College concerned and by the appro-

priate University officials for graduation from UNR, June 5,

1971 (list filed with permanent minutes).



14. Proposed Academic Calendar for 1972-73, UNR



President Miller presented an academic calendar for 1972-73

as proposed and approved by the UNR faculty by a vote of 184

to 48 with recommendation for approval. Proposed calendar

identified as Ref. 14 and filed with permanent minutes.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Morris, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the calendar be adopted as presented.



15. Preliminary Plans, Athletic Fields, UNLV



President Zorn introduced Mr. Gerald Moffitt who presented

the preliminary plans for the UNLV Athletic Fields. Mr.

Moffitt stated that it is anticipated that the project will

be ready for bid in early Fall. Final plans will be ready

for Board review September 10.



President Zorn recommended approval of the preliminary plans

as presented. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



16. Disqualification Policy



President Miller presented, with his recommendation for

approval, Class A Action Bulletin 70-71 #28, proposing a

change in the disqualification policy at UNR (policy change

approved by the Undergraduate Council by a vote of 14-1).

The proposal provides that:



A disqualified student may register only as an auditor

or in a noncredit course. After a period of five years

from the date of disqualification, the student may ap-

ply for readmission by filing a letter of appeal with

the Admissions and Readmissions Board. The Board will

consider each case on its own merits, and no individual

case will be considered as establishing a precedent.



If the student's appeal is upheld, he may register for

credit in Summer School or correspondence study at the

University of Nevada. Upon completion of 12 acceptable

semester credits with a GPA of 2.5 or above, the stu-

dent will be readmitted on probation.



President Miller noted that the present policy is a dis-

qualified student is permanently excluded from registration

for credit in any course offered by the University. Chan-

cellor Humphrey recommended approval.



There was a discussion of the time period specified with

general consensus that a shorter period of time might be

desirable.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval of the proposal with the amend-

ment of the time period from 5 years to 2 years. Motion

seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried without dissent.



17. Minimum Degree Requirements



President Miller recommended approval of a change in the

minimum degree requirements at UNR from 120 credits plus

Physical Education and Military Science to 128 credits, with

Physical Education and Military Science courses counted on

the same basis as other courses in meeting the graduation

requirements set by each program at UNR; i. e., increasing

the number of credits from 60 to 64, with Physical Education

courses counted on the same basis as other courses in meet-

ing the graduation requirements set by each College.



President Miller reported the faculty vote on this issue

was 140 to 80. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott.



Because of a number of questions raised in the discussion

following, President Miller recommended this matter be de-

ferred until the October meeting.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved that the matter be deferred until Octo-

ber. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris, carried without dis-

sent.



18. Changes in English Requirement



A proposal by the UNR faculty for a change in the English

requirements at UNR was included with the agenda (identified

as Ref. 17A and filed with permanent minutes). President

Miller submitted a recommendation for modification of the

UNR Senate proposal (identified as Ref. 17B and also filed

with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the President's

recommendation, effective Fall semester, 1971, which pro-

vides as follows:



(1) English A be dropped.



(2) The University requirement in English be satisfied by

completion of English 102 or equivalent.



(3) Entering Freshmen be placed by ACT English scores as

follows:



a) Below 19, 101W, 3 cr. (A regular 101 course meet-

ing MWF staffed by a regular faculty member or ex-

perienced teaching fellow meeting the class MWF,

and a new or inexperienced teaching fellow meeting

the class TThF. This has the advantage of suppyl-

ing in-service supervised training for our new and

inexperienced teaching fellows.)



b) 19-24, 101R, 3 cr. (Simply the regular 101 course,

meeting MWF.)



c) Above 24, waive 101 and place directly in 102.



(4) Students completing 101 with grade of A or B may, with

the approval of their advisors, substitute one of the

following for English 102:



Engl. 291 Introduction to Literary Study 3 cr.

Engl. 281 Introduction to Language 3 cr.

Engl. 241 Survey of American Literature 3 cr.

Engl. 235 Survey of British Literature I 3 cr.

Engl. 236 Survey of British Literature II 3 cr.

Engl. 321 Advanced Expository Writing 2 cr.

Engl. 335 Great Books I 3 cr.

Engl. 336 Great Books II 3 cr.

Phil. 105 Introduction to Logic 3 cr.

Phil. 221 Ethical Theories 3 cr.

Phil. 222 Existentialism 3 cr.

Phil. 225 Philosophy of Art 3 cr.

Jour. 221 News Gathering & Writing 3 cr.

Spch. 217 Argumentation & Debate 3 cr.

Spch. 218 Argumentation & Debate 3 cr.

Spch. 221 Interpretation 3 cr.



Dr. Harvey, Chairman of the English Department, and Dr.

Mozingo, Chairman of the Faculty Senate, expressed agreement

with President Miller's modification.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Hug,

carried without dissent.



The Board expressed general agreement with this change in

the English requirements and suggested that the English

Department should be commended in developing this program.



19. Distribution of Grants-in-Aid, UNR



President Miller recommended that the 101 grants-in-aid for

tuition and for registration fees, of the total of 202

approved by the Board for UNR, be allocated as follows:



46 (or 23% of all grants) for Music and

55 (or 27% of all grants) for academic recognition,

foreign students and University service.



101 grants-in-aid (or 50% of all grants) were allocated to

athletics in the Work Program for 1971-72.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Morris, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



20. Bob Davis Scholarships



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

Chapter 20, Title 4, Codification of Board Policy State-

ments, be amended by the addition of the following para-

graph to Section 3:



5. That portion of the Bob Davis Scholarship Fund assigned

to the Educational Opportunity Program at UNR may be

awarded the first time to a student whose cumulative GPA

is 2.0 or above and whose most recent semester GPA is

2.0 or above and may be awarded to such student a second

semester even if his most recent semester his GPA is

below 2.0 (provided he is eligible to remain in school

and is registered for at least 12 credits); however, to

receive the award a third semester the student must have

earned a GPA of 2.1 or better in 12 credits or more his

second semester on the program and have recovered his

cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey also recommended

that this policy be reviewed in 1972 after one year of ex-

perience has been gained.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval of the proposed amendment.

Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned for lunch at 12:00 noon and arrangements

made to reconvene in the Travis Lounge of the Student Union

at 3:00 P.M.



The Board of Regents reconvened in regular session in the Travis

Lounge at 3:10 P.M. In addition to those members present during

the morning session, Dr. Lombardi was in attendance.



21. ECC Instructional Building



President Donnelly introduced Mr. Hewitt Wells, who discuss-

ed the status of the preliminary plans. Mr. Mike Marfisi,

Chairman of the ECC Advisory Board, and Mr. William Hancock,

Manager, State Planning Board, were also present. Mr.

Marfisi spoke concerning the recommendation of the ECC

Advisory Board. Specifically he noted that his Board had

not had an opportunity to review the revised preliminary

plans. Also, he expressed reservations about giving up the

existing facility (i. e., the building leased from Elko

County Schools). He suggested that the building be retained

even after the new facility is complete and efforts be made

to obtain sufficient money to support the second facility.



Dr. Donnelly stated that the Administration believes the

total program can be adequately accommodated in the new

facility and the leased building can be allowed to revert to

the School District.



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that when this item was

scheduled for Board of Regents review, it was assumed that

agreement had been reached; however, since that apparently

is not the case, he suggested this matter be rescheduled for

September.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved that this matter be tabled until the

September meeting. Motion seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

without dissent.



Following a short adjournment, Dr. Lombardi moved that if

some agreement is reached prior to September, the Plant and

Property Committee be authorized to approve preliminary

plans so project may proceed. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



22. Revenue Bond Resolutions



Chancellor Humphrey recommended adoption of the following

resolutions to permit sale of $4,250,000 in revenue bonds

23. Revision of Policy for Certain Applicants



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in September, 1969, the

Board of Regents adopted a policy statement on admission of

applicants with criminal records or psychiatric problems.

This statement was distributed as Faculty Policy Bulletin

#69-8 (identified as Ref. 18A and filed with permanent min-

utes). In July, 1970, the Board requested UNR and UNLV

Faculty Senates to review this policy.



President Miller reported the following action by the UNR

Faculty Senate:



(A) The Senate recommends that the portion of the Faculty

Policy Bulletin #69-8 which pertains to applicants for

admission who have had psychiatric care be rescinded.

The question regarding psychiatric care will remain on

the medical history form for the information and guid-

ance of Student Health personnel.



(B) The Senate recommends that the portion of Faculty Pol-

icy Bulletin #69-8 which pertains to applicants with

criminal records be changed as shown below:



The present application form containing the question:

"If you have ever been convicted of a felony, or re-

peated misdemeanors, other than traffic violations,

explain" should be replaced by the following question:



"Have you been convicted or incarcerated as a result of

conviction during the last five years for any of the

following offenses: assault with intent to commit a

crime, felonious assault, criminal homicide, mayhem,

kidnapping, attempted murder, forcible rape, arson,

robbery, child molestation or abuse, sale of narcotics

or dangerous drugs?"



(1) Any applicant answering the question affirmatively

shall be referred to screening committee appoint-

ed by the Dean of Students who shall review each

such application file and make a recommendation to

the Director of Admissions for final action.



a) The screening committee shall be authorized to

establish procedural guidelines subject to the

approval of the President.



b) The composition of the screening committee and

the background information required will vary

with the type of case being considered.



(2) Action taken by Director of Admissions is final

subject to appeal to the President.



(3) The University reserves the right to request the

withdrawal of any student whose continuance is

considered detrimental to his or her health or the

health of others, whose conduct is unsatisfactory.



President Miller recommended adoption of the above changes.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



In response to a question concerning the reasons for inclu-

sion of specific crimes and the apparent exclusion of other

major crimes, Judge Laurance Hyde, speaking for the commit-

tee which had developed the recommendations, stated that it

was the committee's position that the University should only

concern itself with crimes against the person.



It was agreed that recommendations 1 and 2 be considered

separately.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved the question concerning psychiatric

care be deleted from the admission application and remain

only on the medical history form. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



Mr. Morris moved that the recommendation concerning appli-

cants with criminal records be tabled until September.

Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, failed with three affir-

mative and four negative votes.



Mr. Hug moved that the recommendation be adopted with the

addition to the list of felonies of possession of narcotics.

Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen.



Mr. Morris moved to amend to add possession or sale of

marijuana. Motion to amend seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott,

failed with three affirmative and four negative votes.



Mr. Morris moved to amend to add larceny and burglary. Mo-

tion to amend seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, received four af-

firmative and three opposing votes and was declared to have

failed in that it did not receive five affirmative votes as

stipulated by the By-Laws.



Main motion failed with the following roll call vote:



Yes - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Hug, Mrs. Knudtsen, Mr.

Jacobsen

No - Dr. Lombardi, Mr. Mc Dermott, Mr. Morris



President Miller suggested since Robert's Rules of Order

provides that "an amendment of a pending question requires

only a majority vote for its adoption..", the amendment to

the above motion should be declared as approved. The Chair

agreed and the previous action of the Board in defeating the

main motion was rescinded. The motion to amend to add

larency and burglary was declared to have carried.



Mr. Morris moved to further amend the motion to add forgery

to the list of felonies. Motion to amend seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried with four affirmative and three negative

votes.



Main motion as amended then failed with the following roll

call vote:



Yes - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Hug, Mrs. Knudtsen, Mr.

Jacobsen

No - Dr. Lombardi, Mr. Mc Dermott, Mr. Morris



Mr. Hug asked that his vote be changed to No and stated that

he would ask for reconsideration on Saturday.



24. Accreditation of Program



President Miller reported the College of Business Admin-

istration, UNR, was granted accreditation of its master's

program in Business and Administration by the American

Association of Collegiate Schools of Business.



25. Reaccreditation, Department of Journalism



President Miller reported the American Council on Educa-

tion for Journalism has reaccredited the Department of

Journalism.



26. Center for Economic Education, UNR



President Miller reported that Mr. Paul S. Garwood, Chairman

of the Nevada Council on Economic Education has requested

that a Center for Economic Education be established at UNR

and has offered a grant of $6,500 for 1971-72 for support of

the Center, subject to the University provided $3,500 and

office space. Dr. Joseph A. Todd, a part-time faculty mem-

ber of the College of Business Administration and Executive

Director of the Nevada Council on Economic Education would

serve as Director of the UNR Center for Economic Education.



President Miller endorsed the request, provided the $3,500

from the Noble Getchell Endowment Income Account (29-6001).

Chancellor Humphrey noted that the account has a balance of

$4,057.94 and is unrestricted except that it is for use by

UNR. Chancellor Humphrey further noted that this is similar

to the creation of a new Department which, in conformity

with Board policy, may not receive final action until the

second meeting. He recommended that this be considered a

first reading and if approved, be resubmitted at the Septem-

ber meeting for a second reading and final approval.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval of the recommendation. Motion

seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without dissent.



27. Office Administration Program



President Miller presented, with his endorsement, a proposal

from the College of Business Administration that students

who entered the Office Administration program in the Fall,

1970 be permitted to receive a UNR Associate of Arts degree

upon completion of program requirements even though these

students take their second year under the Community College

Division. This provision would apply only to students com-

pleting the requirements by June 30, 1973.



President Donnelly concurred in the above recommendation.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Morris, carried without dissent.



Mr. Hug left the meeting at 5:00 P.M.



28. Quarterly Report of Disciplinary Cases, UNR



President Miller filed a quarterly report of disciplinary

cases handled at UNR for the period ending June 1, 1971

(report identified at Ref. 26 and filed with permanent

minutes).

concerning the violations of the alcoholic beverage policy;

specifically, the dates of the violations, where the viola-

tion occurred, ages of those involved, comparative cases for

the same period last year.

Advisory Board concur in the request. President Donnelly

and Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



40. ECC Accreditation Report



President Donnelly reported he had received notification

that Elko Community College has been approved as a Candidate

for Accreditation in the Northwest Association of Secondary

and Higher Schools. The former status was correspondent.



Dr. Donnelly explained that Candidates usually qualify for

Federally approved programs and the Veterans Administration

treats Candidates the same as fully accredited institutions.

The Northwest Association, he stated, recommends that stu-

dents' transcripts be evaluated as if from a fully accredit-

ed institution.



Dr. Donnelly continued by stating that the Commission has

not authorized ECC to proceed at this time with its self-

study but rather recommends the College be located on its

permanent Campus before the self-study is undertaken.



41. UNLV Graduates, June, 1971



President Zorn presented a list of 350 students approved by

identified as Ref. 42 and filed with permanent minutes).



Dr. Lombardi entered the meeting at 9:32 A.M.



44. Environmental Studies Council



President Zorn recommended that an Environmental Studies

Council be established at UNLV with the following purposes:



(1) To develop and coordinate new and existing Campus and

community environmental courses.



(2) To act as an information center for the Campus and

community regarding environmental affairs.



(3) To promote research in the area of environmental

studies.



(4) To seek funds to promote these objectives.



(Additional details of the proposal are included in Ref. 43,

filed with the permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Morris, carried without dissent.



45. Swenson Avenue Right-of-Way



President Zorn reviewed the history of the negotiations on

Swenson Avenue right-of-way and made certain recommenda-

tions, as follows:



Since 1964 there has been a dedicated right-of-way

designated as Swenson Avenue which potentially would

cross the UNLV Campus on a direct line between Flamingo

and Harmon Avenues. Beginning in 1968 we have nego-

tiated with Clark County for abandonment of this road-

way, and on June 21 we received County acceptance of

a compromise on this issue.



Rather than have the Campus bisected by the original

right-of-way and its probable extension to Tropicana

Avenue, we have negotiated a rerouting generally re-

lated to the western periphery of the UNLV Campus.

Moffit and Mc Daniel, architects for the Physical Edu-

cation Complex, have confirmed that this relocation

will not interfere with construction of the related

athletic fields. Moreover, the several parcels of

land that would be severed from the Campus by the new

route would total no more than 22 acres, with the

probability that this acreage would have increased

value due to frontage on an improved street.



Enclosed you will find a map (map filed in Chancellor's

Office) which indicates the compromise route which

appears acceptable to both Clark County and to the

University. On June 21 the Board of Commissioners of

Clark County voted to vacate the existing dedication

for Swenson Avenue upon condition that the University

Regents give in exchange the right-of-way for the

relocated street in so far as they control the land

involved. It is understood that Clark County would

be obliged to negotiate for additional right-of-way

with private landholders in the vicinity of Naples

Drive and with the NSU Lane Foundation for that land-

holding. The County Engineering Department is current-

ly surveying the total right-of-way related to this

project, and specifications will be forwarded as soon

as available.



It is my recommendation that the University Regents ap-

prove this compromise so that we will have a definitive

settlement of this long-standing problem. This will

permit siting of the Physical Education buildings with-

out further delay and it will permit closure of the

partially contructed road on the site of the original

right-of-way.



President Zorn also requested approval of the Board for

authorization to execute the required grant deed for the

right-of-way. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



Chancellor Humphrey spoke of the difficult task of complet-

ing negotiations for this change in alignment, noting it had

been agreed to a number of years ago when the University had

no plans for development of the property in this area. He

stated that President Zorn, the Clark County Regents and

other friends of the University should be commended for

successfully negotiating this compromise with Clark County.



It was agreed that letters of appreciation should be written

on behalf of the Board of Regents to the Chairman of the

County Commission, the Chamber of Commerce Transportation

Committee and to Jim Cashman, President of the Chamber of

Commerce.



46. Item Missing



47. HUD-Clark County Housing Authority Proposal



President Zorn presented a proposal from the U. S. Depart-

ment of Housing and Urban Development and the Clark County

Housing Authority for further exploration of public housing

on UN property. (Proposal identified as Ref. 46 and filed

with permanent minutes.)



President Zorn recommended the Board authorize additional

study, leading to a complete revelation of all facts and

development of a recommendation. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Mr. Morris moved that the recommendation for further study

be approved. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried with

Mrs. Knudtsen, Dr. Anderson and Miss Thompson opposing.



48. Frenchman Mountain BLM Land



President Zorn recalled that in 1967 an application was

filed with the Bureau of Land Management, with Board of

Regents approval, for classification and lease of 4,800

acres in Clark County, located about 13 miles from UNLV near

Frenchman Mountain, to be used as an outside laboratory for

biological studies.



He reported that BLM has now segregated this land from dis-

posal in such a manner that it protects the natural habitat

of the area for study. BLM has requested the University

therefore, withdraw its application to lease. President

Zorn recommended the application be withdrawn. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



49. Angel Peak Field Station



President Zorn recalled that in October, 1970 the Board

authorized negotiations with Clark County for facilities at

Angel Peak, the development of firm estimates of maintenance

and operating costs and when such information was available

the matter be referred back to the Board for action. He

noted that the inclusion in the agenda of a memorandum of

explanation from Dean Robert B. Smith to President Zorn, in-

cluding an estimate of the cost of modifying building #19

and furnishings. (Memorandum identified as Ref. 49, filed

with permanent minutes.) President Zorn recommended the

Board approve leasing building #19, without cost, except for

repairs and furnishings, for a period of three years and

the location be used as a field outpost for the College of

Sciences and Mathematics, UNLV. He noted that a separate

budget for operating the station would be included in the

1972-73 Work Program.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed the President's proposal and

recommended that the necessary remodeling and furnishings

costs be paid from UNLV 1971-72 budgeted funds and that the

operating costs of the station be borne by the College of

Sciences and Mathematics budget as work programmed.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Dr. Lombardi seconded, carried

without dissent.

included with the supplemental agenda (identified as Ref. 2A

and filed with the permanent minutes).



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



52. Additional Transfers of Funds



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

transfers from the Contingency Reserve:



# 5-UNR $18,090 from Contingency Reserve to Dean's Office,

College of Education, to fund an additional posi-

tion in Research and Educational Planning Center.



# 6-UNR $18,090 from Contingency Reserve to General Univer-

additional registration grants-in-aid.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



53. Admission of Community College Transfers to UNR, UNLV



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in June, 1970, the Board

of Regents, upon recommendation of ECC Advisory Board and

Presidents Donnelly, Miller and Zorn, adopted a policy which

allows any student graduating from ECC in an Associate of

Arts or Associate of Science program to be admitted to ei-

ther UNR or UNLV as a regular student in a baccalaureate

program with transfer credit granted for courses which are

equivalent to those offered in the baccalaureate programs at

the Universities.



Presidents Donnelly, Miller, Zorn and Chancellor Humphrey

recommended this provision to be extended to graduates of

any of the Community College Division Campuses.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



54. Environmental Studies Program, DRI



President Ward recalled that upon the recommendation of the

DRI National Advisory Board the Board of Regents in July,

1970, established a Systemwide Environmental Quality Program

(name later changed to Environmental Studies Program) to be

administered within DRI. In the Summer of 1970 two repre-

sentatives each from UNLV, UNR and DRI were named to a Com-

mittee to be in charge of the program.



Dr. Ward continued by stating that because he believed that

it is not feasible for a committee to run a research project

or program, he recommended the following changes:



(1) That a well-established environmental scientist from

outside the University of Nevada System be appointed as

Program Director of the Environmental Studies Program.

That the duties of this individual will include the

coordination, where possible, of research and academic

programs between UNLV's Environmental Studies Center,

UNR's Environmental Studies Board and the Environmental

programs within DRI without affecting the autonomy of

the programs at UNLV, UNR and DRI. The main objective

of the Program Director would be to develop a System-

wide approach to all aspects of environmental studies.



(2) That the present Environmental Studies Committee be

abolished and an Advisory Environmental Studies

Committee be established to advise with the Program

Director. That this latter committee be composed of

six individuals; the Director and his designate of

UNLV's Environmental Studies Center, the Director and

his designate of UNLV's Environmental Studies Board

and two individuals from the DRI.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed President Ward's recommenda-

tion, except for the stipulation that appointment of the

Program Director be from outside the University of Nevada

System. He recommended that no restriction be placed upon

recruitment which would exclude present System faculty.



President Miller and President Zorn expressed support of the

recommendation, stating that it is considered essential that

there be some coordination to avoid duplication of effort.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval of President Ward's recommenda-

tion as endorsed and modified by Chancellor Humphrey. Mo-

tion seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried without dissent.



55. Transfers to Effect UNLV Reorganization



President Zorn noted the Board of Regents had approved a

reorganization of UNLV in May which necessitated some trans-

fers of funds between operating accounts. The appropriate

accounts have now been identified and he recommended a total

of $112,800 to be transferred as indicated in Ref. 53, filed

with permanent minutes. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



56. Site Improvement, UNLV



A report from the State Planning Board on the current status

of this project was included with the agenda (identified as

Ref. 54 and filed with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey noted that preliminary plans are due on

this project August 14 and final plans expected October 14.

In order to allow the project to proceed, President Zorn and

Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board authorize

consideration and approval of the preliminary plans by ei-

ther the Plant and Property Committee or an Ad Hoc Committee

of District Two Regents.



Mr. Morris moved that an Ad Hoc Committee of District Two

Regents be authorized to approve the preliminary plans.

Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without dissent.



57. Sale of Land to State Highway Department



President Miller recalled that in June, 1970, the State

Highway Department offered $71,130 for 20.38 acres of land

on the Main Station Farm, Washoe County, required for

construction of Ring Road. The offer was rejected by the

University; however, right of entry was granted subject to

certain conditions and the Administration was authorized to

negotiate with the Highway Department.



President Miller continued by noting Vice President Pine has

completed negotiations and recommends that 11.51 acres be

sold for a total price of $71,130. This price has been

reviewed by William H. Murray, M. A. I., who also recommends

acceptance.



President Miller requested approval of the sale and dedica-

tion of the net proceeds of the sale to Max C. Fleischmann

College of Agriculture for new facilities. Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval by the Board.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

carried without dissent.

dissent.



60. Memorial Statement for Dr. Floyd Scritchfield



President Zorn reported the death of Dr. Floyd Scritchfield,

member of the faculty of the College of Education, UNLV, and

requested adoption of the following memorial statement:



The Regents of the University of Nevada System express

sincere sorrow over the death of Dr. Floyd Scritchfield,

55, Professor of Secondary Education in the College of

Education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.



Dr. Scritchfield, who joined the staff in 1959, was one

of the pioneers on the early development of the Uni-

versity and the Teacher Education Program at the Las

Vegas Campus. He contributed significantly in the

areas of curriculum development, the overall teacher

preparation program and served as the Chairman of the

Division of Education and Physical Education during

the 1961-62 academic year. More recently he coordinat-

ed the Philosophical and Sociological Foundations of

Education in the Department of Professional Studies.



He was considered a scholar in the field of preparation

and worked diligently to improve the quality of teacher

education throughout the nation. Both his colleagues

and his students will miss him greatly.



The Board of Regents extends its sincere sympathy to

the surviving members of his family.



Mr. Morris moved approval of the above memorial statement.
