idents was recommended (report identified as Ref. 2 and

3. Law School Feasibility Study



President Baepler noted that the Law School Feasibility

Study, as prepared by Dean Willard Pedrick and Dr. Lorne

Seidman, had been mailed to the Board earlier in anticipa-

tion of its presentation at this meeting. He reviewed the

history of the Committee and its actions subsequent to its

appointment by the Board of Regents. Dr. Baepler stated

that he believed the Feasibility Study was honest and ob-

jective and noted that it had been endorsed by the Law

School Advisory Committee, by the CSUN, UNLV Senate and

by the Administration. He recommended its approval by the

Board.



Dr. Ralph Roske, Chairman of the Committee, briefly reviewed

the procedure followed by the Committee and introduced Dean

Willard Pedrick, who presented the Feasibility Study and

its recommendations.



Following presentation of the study, a lengthy discussion

ensued, during which statements in support of a Law School

were presented by CSUN President Val Buhecker and State

Senator John Foley.



Rev. Kohn moved that the Feasibility Study be accepted and

recommended to the Legislature for approval and establish-

ment of a Law School at UNLV with classes to begin in 1976.

Motion seconded by Mr. Buchanan.



Mr. Morris moved to amend the motion to request the Legis-

lature to fund all of the costs, including operating and

capital budgets, in a separate appropriation. Motion to

amend was not seconded.



Chancellor Humphrey recounted the events leading up to the

Feasibility Study, pointing out that the 1973 Legislature

had determined that a Law School was needed and that its

location should be at UNLV. He recommended that the study

be accepted, approved and forwarded to the Legislature and

that it be included as a new program in the budget request,

and that the University anticipate that the program would

be initiated and students accepted in 1976 on the assumption

that action will be taken by the Governor and the Legisla-

ture to fund the Law School as a new program.



Dr. Anderson suggested to Mr. Morris that his motion be

withdrawn and a substitute motion offered to approve the

Chancellor's recommendation.



Mr. Morris expressed concern that if action were taken at

this meeting it would be in violation of the Board's policy

which requires that a new program or a new Department may

not be established by affirmative action taken at the meet-

ing at which the matter is first introduced. He asked for

an opinion from Counsel.



Mr. Morris moved to table further discussion until after

action on the operating and capital budgets had been taken,

with the understanding that it would be taken up immediately

following lunch. Motion to table was not seconded.



The meeting adjourned for lunch and reconvened at 1:40 P.M.



Discussion resumed on #3, Law School Feasibility Study.



Mr. Hug commented on the Board's policy concerning new

programs, recalling that in June there had been extensive

discussion on a proposed Law School and the Feasibility

Study, including a preliminary report from Dean Pedrick.

Accordingly, Mr. Hug stated, he did not believe that a

request for action at this meeting violated the Board's

policy concerning the addition of new programs.



Mr. Buchanan moved that the study be accepted and the

matter be submitted to the 1975 Legislature as a part of

the biennial budget request. Motion seconded by Rev.

Kohn.



Mr. Morris moved to amend to provide that the Law School

not be given a higher priority in the list of new programs

than a program already approved by the Board. Motion to

amend seconded by Dr. Anderson who asked if such action

were acceptable to the Officers.



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that the new programs had

not been ranked and he would prefer an opportunity to dis-

cuss such ranking with the Officers before action to es-

tablish priorities is taken by the Board. He requested

that the Cabinet be allowed to develop a recommendation

for consideration at the September meeting but suggested

that action concerning the approval of the Feasibility

Study could proceed.



Mr. Morris withdrew his amendment and moved to amend to

specify that by the September meeting the priority of the

Law School be considered along with other new programs to

be submitted to the 1975 Legislature. Motion to amend,

seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried.



Main motion carried.



4. Final Plans, UNLV Life Sciences Building



Final plans for the Life Sciences building were presented

by Mr. Robert Fielden of Jack Miller and Associates, proj-

ect architects. Review of the project was included with

the agenda (identified as Ref. 8 and filed with permanent

minutes). President Baepler and Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval of the final plans.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



5. Final Plans, Phases II and III, CCCC



Final plans for Phases II and III of the Clark County Com-

munity College were presented by Mr. Ed de Lorenzo, project

utes). President Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval of the final plans.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



6. Name Change for College of Science and Mathematics, UNLV



President Baepler recommended that the name of the College

of Science and Mathematics be changed to College of Science,

Mathematics and Engineering. Dr. Baepler noted that he did

not want to move in the direction of a separate College of

Engineering and it was his intention to merely give the

present engineering program more visibility. Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval, effective immediately.



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

carried without dissent.



7. Change in Title of Program and Degree, UNLV



President Baepler presented, with his endorsement, a recom-

mendation from the UNLV Curriculum Committee that the title

of the Law Enforcement Program at UNLV be changed from a

Bachelor of Science to a Bachelor of Arts degree. Dr.

Baepler noted that the title Criminal Justice better repre-

sents the type of programs offered, which focuses upon the

entire system of justice, police courts and corrections and

is built upon a liberal arts base. Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval, effective immediately.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Morris, carried with Mr. Buchanan opposing.



8. Campus Improvement Projects, UNLV Gymnasium Remodel



President Baepler recommended that Cambeiro and Cambeiro

be retained as architects for the remodeling of the Gym-

nasium to house the UNLV Museum. He noted that a total of

$120,000 is available ($60,000 from the 1973 Campus improve-

ment appropriation and $60,000 from the 1973 appropriation

for remodeling). In addition, an application for $39,250

to the National Endowment for the Arts is pending and, if

approved, will be used to increase the project to $159,250.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.

11. Medical Examination for Admission



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in June, a report from

Counsel Hug, prepared in response to a request by the Board

that he review the University's policy requiring a medical

examination for admission, was distributed with a recommen-

dation from the Officers to be submitted at the July meet-

ing. Mr. Hug's report was included with the agenda (identi-

fied as Ref. 32 and filed with permanent minutes). Mr.

Hug's report concluded that "an exemption for Christian

Science students from the requirement of furnishing a medi-

cal history and examination would be reasonable and legally

sustainable, even though the exemption is probably not le-

gally required."



President Baepler and President Donnelly recommended that

for their Divisions the mandatory medical examination be

discontinued.



Acting President Anderson recommended that for UNR the

medical examination be continued as at present, except

that the request for waiver of the requirement on behalf

of Christian Scientists be honored.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Presidents' re-

quests be approved.



Mr. Morris moved approval of the Chancellor's recommenda-

tion. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson.



Mr. Steninger moved to amend to provide that the medical

examination be discontinued for all Divisions as a con-

dition of admission. Motion to amend seconded by Miss

Thompson, failed with the following roll call vote:

(Bylaws require 5 votes to carry an issue.)



Mr. Morris moved that the University Division Heads accept

any request for waiver of medical examination on behalf of

any religious order. Motion seconded by Mr. Steninger,

failed with the following roll call vote:

Morris, Mr. Steninger, Miss Thompson

No - Dr. Anderson

Abstain - Rev. Kohn, Dr. Lombardi



12. Desert Biology Laboratory, DRI



President Ward recalled that at the June meeting, the Board

was informed that the bids for the Desert Biology Laboratory

building planned for Boulder City were in excess of the

available funds but that the low bidder, Butler Enterprises,

would hold open their base bid until July 13, 1974, in the

event that additional funding could be obtained. The Board

at the June meeting directed that a request be made of

Nevada's Congressional delegation for the introduction of

special legislation appropriating $750,000 for construction

of this laboratory. Chancellor Humphrey reported that such

a request was made from his Office.



President Ward recommended that the bids on the building be

rejected and that a conventional (with no solar climate

control) building be redesigned immediately and the plans

submitted to the Board for approval. He stated that this

action is not intended to preclude the possible conversion

of this conventionally powered building to accept a solar

climate system if funding for such a system becomes avail-

able.



Mr. Buchanan moved that the matter be postponed until the

September meeting and that the funding agency be requested

to extend the time during which the grant will be available

to allow for investigation of additional funding sources

for the construction of the solar energy aspects of the

building. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn, carried without

dissent.



13. 1974-75 Financial Plan, DRI



President Ward presented a proposed Financial Plan for DRI

for 1974-75 (identified as Ref. 11 and filed with permanent

carried without dissent.

cit is $16,717 and there is inventory on hand with a

cost value of approximately $30,000. CCCC has requested

a loan of $20,000 from the CCCC Capital Improvement Fee

account to cover the existing deficit, to be repaid over

a period of 10 years at the rate of $2000 per year. A

second loan of $40,000 from the same source has also

been requested to finance additional inventory for the

beginning of Fall and Spring semesters to cover the

would be for a period of 10 years, payable at the rate

of $500 per year.



3. WNCC - The bookstore at WNCC was discontinued in Janu-

ary, 1974, and arrangements were made for Maytan Educa-

tional Aids to provide book service. The inventory was

transferred to Maytan at 80% of the list price. The

deficit for the bookstore account as of June 30, 1974

was $38,963.89. The transfer of inventory at a price

of $28,549 left a deficit of $10,414.89. President

Donnelly reported that WNCC has requested that this

deficit be covered by a transfer from the Carson City

gift account.



President Donnelly recommended approval. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Rev. Kohn moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried without dissent.



16. Agreement with Washoe County School District



President Donnelly recalled that in June, 1972 CCD and

Washoe County School District entered into an agreement for

the orderly transition of the Adult and Continuing Education

Programs and affected personnel from the District to WNCC

and for the sharing of personnel and facilities in carrying

out educational programs with a minimum of duplication. In

order to advance this cooperation, additional consideration

and approval by the Board of Regents is desirable. Dr.

Donnelly noted that under this agreement:



1. WCSD will provide classroom space to WNCC as needed and

as available without charge.



2. In lieu of payment for such space WNCC will administer

the WCSD in-service training program and pay the in-

structors. This will cost $30,000 for 1974-75. In

order to fund this, a transfer of $30,000 from the WNCC

Buildings and Grounds budget to Instruction (in-service

program) is required.



A copy of the proposed agreement was distributed with the

agenda (identified as Ref. 14 and filed with permanent min-

utes). President Donnelly recommended approval. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



17. Accident and Sickness Expense Protection Insurance, WNCC



President Donnelly reported that proposals have been soli-

cited by WNCC for student insurance on an optional basis

for 1974-75. He recommended approval of a proposal sub-

mitted by Insurance Services, Inc. as underwritten by the

Puritan Life Insurance Company (Bruno Menicucci, local

agent). Two basic plans are available: Plan I, Unallocat-

ed Accident Protection, providing up to $1000 coverage per

accident within a 26-week period; Plan II, Major Hospital

responses had been received and the State Public Works

Board was informed that the Board concurred in the award of

a contract to the single bidder, ABC Builders, 3025 Sheridan

Avenue, Las Vegas, in the amount of $79,965. President

Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recommended confirmation

of the action taken as a result of the mail ballot.

Watts had requested an opportunity to make a presentation

to the Board on behalf of the National College of the State

Judiciary but had asked that his appearance be rescheduled

for September.



21. University Centennial Committee Budget



Acting President Anderson requested an allocation from the

Board of Regents Special Projects Account of $25,000 to

assist in funding the activities planned for the University

of Nevada Centennial Year. Of this total amount, Dr.

Anderson noted that $19,500 was intended for enrichment

of student programs during the year. Proposed budget by

the Centennial Committee was included with the agenda

(identified as Ref. 20 and filed with permanent minutes).



Tom Mayer, ASUN President, stated that ASUN had requested

a total of $35,000 from the Board of Regents and distributed

a proposed budget in support of the total request.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the commitments already made

against the Board of Regents Special Projects Account and

recommended an allocation of $25,000 be approved.



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Morris, carried without dissent.



22. Recommendations Concerning Residence Halls



Acting President Anderson recalled that in March the Board

approved adjustments in residence hall rates but instructed

the Administration to prepare a report concerning "...the

feasibility of granting waivers of room charges to deserv-

ing undergraduate and graduate assistants." There was

also discussion concerning development of other recommenda-

tions to improve residence hall occupancy. He also recall-

ed that in May, Chancellor Humphrey presented a report con-

taining 8 suggestions for implementation in 1974-75 on an

experimental basis. At the time, also, Dr. Lombardi re-

quested that consideration be given to providing waivers

of room rent for student athletes.



Acting President Anderson submitted the following responses

to the suggestions presented in May:



1. Offer waivers of room charges to 30 outstanding high

school seniors for their Freshman year: Proposal re-

jected.



2. Provide funding for 4 graduate fellows in Counseling

and Guidance Personnel Services for residence hall

work, salary of $2800 plus fringe benefits to be paid

by Board of Regents Special Projects Fund and grants-

in-aid to be paid by UNR: Proposal accepted and

$11,316 requested from Board of Regents Special Proj-

ects Fund.



3. Organize residence hall workshop for all staff con-

cerned with residence halls, allocation of $500 from

Board of Regents Special Projects Fund for this pur-

pose. Proposal accepted and allocation requested.



4. Allocate $500 from the Board of Regents Special Proj-

ects Fund for Fall "mixers" and other activities to

assist students in adjusting to new living situations.

Proposal accepted and allocation requested.



5. Secure proposals of contract food service on a 7-day

week. Accomplished at June meeting and PFM bid accept-

ed.



6. Utilize student athletes throughout Auxiliary Enter-

prises organization in exchange for rooms. Added by

Dr. Lombardi: grant waivers of room rent to student

athletes. 60 athletes to be housed as follows: 6 in

Lincoln, 32 in Nye, 10 in Juniper, and 12 in White Pine.

Intercollegiate Athletics funds will pay $150 per year

per athlete. These people will work for Auxiliary

Enterprises or Buildings and Grounds on an hourly basis

to make up the difference.



Acting President Anderson also recommended that the semester

room rates previously adopted be rescinded and that these

rates remain as in 1973-74; i. e., $278.50 per semester for

double occupancy, $400 per semester for single occupancy,

a $10 damage deposit and $19 per semester per student for

telephone.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the above and

further recommended a $1000 allocation from the Board of

Regents Special Projects Account for UNLV for Items (3)

and (4).



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Buchanan, carried without dissent.



Mr. Hug commented on recent court decisions concerning

parietal agreements requiring students to reside in Univer-

sity dormitories.



Discussion resumed on Item #11 - Medical Examination for Admis-

sion.



President Donnelly spoke of the difficulty in administering

the requirement for medical examination for admission to

the Community College Division, noting that this requirement

was not specified in the Board of Regents Handbook for CCD

and he would recommend that it not be applicable to CCD

students.



Mrs. Joyce moved that the earlier action be set aside and

moved that the medical examination be waived for Christian

Scientists and that it not be applicable in any case to

CCD students. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris, carried with

Mr. Buchanan opposing.



23. Revision of Estimative Budget for Food Services, UNR



Vice President Pine requested a revision to the estimative

budget for Food Services for 1974-75, noting that a private

contractor is to assume food service on August 15, 1974.

The University is to provide complete food service includ-

ing personnel and all supplies until the end of the second

session of Summer School. Income is based on the rates

approved by the Board on June 12, 1974. Requested revision

budgets for 1974-75 for UNR Housing Services as included

with the agenda (identified as Ref. 23 and filed with per-

manent minutes). Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



25. Accident and Sickness Expense Protection Insurance



Acting President Anderson noted that students at UNR have

had the option to purchase insurance from the Federated

American Insurance Company (Seattle) at registration time

on an "automatic unless waived" contract for $10 per

semester. The policy has a $10 deductible on accidents,

$30 per day hospital room and board charge to a maximum

of $1000, $300 miscellaneous hospital expense and $300

surgery benefit. This policy terminates August 31, 1974.



In anticipation of this termination, the Student Health

Services, Office of Student Services, solicited proposals

for 1974-75. Dr. Anderson reported that Dr. Robert Locke

and Dean Roberta Barnes have recommended a proposal sub-

mitted by Associated Insurance Plans International, as

underwritten by the Puritan Life Insurance Co. (Bruno

Menicucci, local agent). This plan has no deductible for

accidents, $55 per day hospital room and board charge to

a maximum of $5000, $500 miscellaneous hospital expense,

$600 for surgery. $1000 for outpatient care and some

diagnostic laboratory expenses when ordered by Student

Health Services, plus a $1000 death benefit. The premium

is $30 per student for 12 months coverage and would be

voluntary, optional coverage for all UNR students. The

following rates would also apply: $63 for student and

spouse, $105 for student, spouse and children, and $55

additional for optional maternity benefits. The premium

could be paid $10 per registration (i. e., Fall, Spring

and Summer). Acting President Anderson and Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval.



Rev. Kohn moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Buchanan,

carried without dissent.



26. Proposed Division of Veterinary Medicine, UNR



Acting President Anderson recalled that in June the Board

reviewed a proposal from the Max C. Fleischmann College of

Agriculture for the establishment of a Division of Veterin-

ary Medicine to replace the present of Veterinary Science

in the Animal Science Division. He noted that this pro-

posal is now ready for action and recommended approval,

effective immediately. Chancellor Humphrey concurred,

noting that this is not a new program and does not change

the present authorization for the teaching of veterinary

medicine courses.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



27. Approval of Fund Transfers, UNR



Acting President Anderson requested approval of the follow-

ing transfers from the Contingency Reserve:



*#102 $5600 to the Bureau of Business and Economic Research

to provide coverage for graduate assistants. An off-

setting transfer has been made from the professional

salary category.



#105 $10,323 to the Affirmative Action account to cover

full salary for the Director. The 1/2 portion of

the Director's salary originally programmed in Stu-

dent Services will be transferred to the Contingency

Reserve.



#109 $6219 to the Department of Managerial Sciences to

provide coverage for professional compensation result-

ing from personnel changes within the Managerial Sci-

ence Department and the Bureau of Business and Econom-

ic Research.



*#110 $6219 to the Sabbatical Leave Account in Statewide

Programs to provide partial coverage for the Associ-

ate Director's salary. This transfer is required

because of personnel changes within the Managerial

Science Department and the Bureau of Business and

Economic Research.



*Statewide Account



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Patrick Beaulieu, UNR Faculty Senate Chairman, spoke

concerning transfer #105, and read the following resolu-

tion from the UNR Faculty Senate:



That the position of Director of Affirmative Action

be considered a new position for purposes of recruit-

ing, that affirmative action procedures be followed

to recruit, and that a representative committee of

faculty, administration and students be set up to

recruit for that position.



Mr. Morris moved that #105 be deleted from the requested

transfers. Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that the requested transfer of

funds was appropriate and pointed out that the effect of

the Senate's action was to attempt to exercise a veto over

the President's appointment to a professional staff posi-

tion and suggested that discussion concerning that aspect

should appropriately occur on the Campus. He suggested

that the transfer of funds was a separate matter.



Second to the motion was withdrawn by Dr. Anderson.



Mr. Morris moved approval of transfers #102, #109 and #110.

Motion was not seconded.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval of the Chancellor's recommenda-

tion for approval of all transfers. Motion seconded by

Rev. Kohn, carried with Mr. Morris opposing.



Upon motion by Mrs. Joyce, seconded by Miss Thompson, 5 supple-

mental items were admitted to the agenda.



28. Construction of Electrical Substation, UNR



Mr. Pine reported the following bids received July 18, 1974

for the construction of an electrical substation between

Mackay Stadium and the tennis courts (North Campus):



Harker & Harker $24,380

Acme Collins 29,154

Mr. Pine recommended that the bid of Harker and Harker be

accepted. He noted that an original allocation of $24,500

was authorized in October, 1973 from the Physical Educa-

tion Complex Revenue Bond Investment account. This con-

tract plus the design costs bring the total expenditure to

$25,630, requiring additional allocation of $1130.



Acting President Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended award of the bid to Harker & Harker and an addition-

al allocation of $1130 from the Revenue Bond Investment

account.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.

30. S-Bar-S Ranch



Vice President Pine reported that the Max C. Fleischmann

College of Agriculture has proposed that a modular home,

24' x 60', with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, be purchased and

moved to the S-Bar-S Ranch to provide living quarters for

operating personnel at the ranch, and that the Helen

Marye Thomas home be used exclusively as a conference

center. The modular home is estimated at $20,600 and

funds are available in the Helen Marye Thomas trust ac-

count. Mr. Pine reported that expenditure from the trust

account for this purpose has been recommended by the

Citizens Advisory Committee for the College and by the

trust officer of the First National Bank. Acting Presi-

dent Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



31. Funds for Completion of Equestrian Facility, UNR



Vice President Pine recalled that in October, 1973 the Board

authorized an equestrial facility for the Max C. Fleischmann

College of Agriculture to be constructed at the Valley Road

Farm. A total budget of $60,000 was approved, with $30,000

to be used for Phase I, a steel open instructional build-

ing, approximately 80' x 94'. Subsequently, this structure

was increased in size to 100' x 125' and a contract for its

construction was awarded in June for $57,247. Mr. Pine re-

ported that Dean Bohmont has requested that $10,000 be al-

located from the Agricultural Experiment Station Facility

funds for the completion of the Equestrian Facility. The

funds will be used for corrals, stanchions, and materials

needed to complete the corrals and holding areas. Acting

President Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



32. Reorganization of College of Education, UNR



Acting President Anderson presented a proposal from the

College of Education, with his endorsement, for the renam-

ing and reorganization of Departments within the College,

as follows:



Department of Educational Foundations - change of

name to Department of Educational Foundations Media.



Department of School Administration and Supervision -

change of name to Department of Educational Adminis-

tration and Higher Education.



Department of Elementary and Special Education and

Department of Secondary Education - combining of the

two Departments under one to be called Division of

Curriculum and Instruction.



Justification for these changes as submitted by Dean Cain

was included with the agenda (identified as Ref. 31 and

filed with permament minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective im-

mediately, noting that this proposal does not create new

Departments and does not, therefore, require that action

be deferred until a subsequent meeting.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Buchanan, carried without dissent.



33. Report of Investment Advisory Committee



Dr. Lombardi, Chairman of the Investment Advisory Committee,

presented the minutes of the meeting of that Committee held

on June 21, 1974. Minutes identified as Ref. 33 and filed

with permanent minutes. Confirmation of the Committee's

action as reported in the minutes was recommended.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



34. Proposed Meeting with State Public Works Board



Regent Morris reported that he and State Public Works Board

Chairman William Flangas had discussed the desirability of

a joint meeting of the Regents and the Public Works Board.

He noted the Chancellor's recommendation that the date of

Thursday, September 12, be agreed upon in order to tie into

the September meeting of the Regents in Reno.



Mr. Morris moved approval of a joint meeting with the State

Public Works Board and the Board of Regents on Thursday,

September 12. Motion seconded by Mr. Buchanan, carried

without dissent.



35. October Meeting of Board of Regents



Mr. Steninger reported that the Elko Historical Society had

concurred in the date of October 25 for observance by Elko

of the University's Centennial.



Mr. Buchanan moved that the October 25 meeting of the Board

scheduled for Las Vegas be moved to Elko in order to allow

participation by the Regents in Elko's observance of the

University's Centennial. Motion seconded by Mrs. Joyce,

carried without dissent.



Miss Thompson moved that the December 6 meeting of the

Board scheduled for Reno be moved to Las Vegas. Motion

seconded by Mr. Buchanan, carried without dissent.



36. Comparison of Admission Standards at UNR and UNLV



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the June meeting an

information item was submitted reflecting an analysis of

University requirements for admission, scholastic standards,

grading systems, and academic achievement. This analysis

was distributed again with the agenda and is on file in

the Chancellor's Office.



Dr. Humphrey noted that the analysis revealed that some

disparity has developed in those standards between the two

University Divisions and he believed it would be timely to

consider the desirability of bringing the standards of the

two Campuses into greater consistency. Accordingly, he

reported that he had taken steps to establish an ad hoc

System Committee on Standards to explore the problem and

to develop recommendations for consideration by UNR and

UNLV and by the Board of Regents.



37. Grant-in-Aid Allocations for 1974-75 and Policy Revision



A. Chancellor Humphrey noted that NRS 296.540 provides

that the "...Board of Regents may grant tuitions free

each University semester to worthwhile and deserving

students from other states and foreign countries, in

number not to exceed a number equal to 3% of the total

matriculated enrollment of students for the last pre-

ceding Fall semester."



Dr. Humphrey also noted that Board policy (B/R Handbook,

Title 4, Chapter 14, Section 2) reads as follows:



2. Grants-in-Aid shall be allocated for:



(a) Foreign students (not less than 15% of

the total);

(b) Students who contribute to University

programs in activities; and

(c) Outstanding scholarship attainment.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that Acting President

Anderson has recommended that the above policy be amend-

ed by deleting the parenthetical clause concerning for-

eign students which sets a minimum number of grants to

be awarded to this group, noting that because of a mis-

understanding at UNR, only 15 grants-in-aid, rather than

15% of the total, have been awarded to foreign students

and UNR does not recommend that the total be increased

at this time. He also noted that President Baepler and

President Donnelly concur. Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



B. Chancellor Humphrey reviewed existing policy concerning

allocation of grants-in-aid available under the NRS

provision allowing 3% of the previous Fall enrollment,

and presented the following recommendations from UNR

and UNLV for allocation of such grants-in-aid for 1974-

75:



UNR UNLV



Intercollegiate Athletics 100 77

Music 46 31

All Other Purposes 55 46

Total (Based on 3%) 201 154



Nevada Indians 20 13



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by

Mr. Morris, carried without dissent.



C. President Donnelly requested approval of the following

grants-in-aid for CCD for 1974-75:



Registration Fee Registration Fee

Nevada Residents Nev Resident Indians



CCCC 39 10

NNCC 6 14

WNCC 43 10



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, noting that

each grant-in-aid was for a total of 16 credits per

semester and a grant was divisible.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



38. Nevada Educators Conference



Chancellor Humphrey noted that for several years UNR has

had annual Nevada Educators Conferences involving public

school superintendents, State Department of Education

personnel, and high school counselors and principals, for

the purpose of providing an opportunity for 2-way com-

munication between the participants and the University

concerning admission of students and programs. Activities

leading to the same result have been carried on by UNLV

and CCD.



Dr. Humphrey reported that the Presidents of the 3 instruc-

tional Divisions have endorsed a proposal that the individu-

al Campus activities be discontinued and a single System

Educators Conference be held annually preceding the State-

wide meeting of the Nevada Personnel and Guidance Associ-

ation, which rotates yearly between the Reno and Las Vegas

areas. The 1974 meeting of the NPGA is scheduled for

November 14-15 at the Sahara Tahoe Hotel. The proposed

System Conference could be held November 13, starting with

lunch and concluding at 5:00 P.M.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of this System

Conference and requested an allocation of $1200 from the

Board of Regents Special Projects Fund to cover the ex-

penses of the hosted luncheon.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



39. Payroll Withholding of Political Contributions



Chancellor Humphrey reported that Dr. James T. Richardson,

acting on behalf of the Executive Board of the UNR Chapter

of the National Society of Professors, has requested that

permission be granted to allow withholding of political

contributions by faculty members. Dr. Richardson's re-

quest noted that this "...is a fairly common practice in

the private sector, and some public employee groups have

the right as well ...". His request also stated that "...

about 10 public school systems in the State allow political

contributions to be withheld from paychecks...".



Mr. Hug stated that there is no legal prohibition to this

request and that it would be a policy decision by the

Board. Chancellor Humphrey inquired if anyone wished to

present additional information on behalf of this request.

There was no response.



Mr. Buchanan moved that the request be denied. Motion

seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried without dissent.



40. ASUN-CSUN Student Body Officers Travel Fund



Chancellor Humphrey requested an allocation of $1500 from

the Board of Regents Special Projects account to provide

travel funds for 1974-75 for representatives of student

government to attend Board meetings.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Buchanan, carried without dissent.



41. Request for Interfund Loans, UNR



Acting President Anderson requested approval of the follow-

ing interfund loans from UNR's Unemployment Compensation

Pool:



1. $10,000 to Central Office Services Sales Account to be

used for the purchase of 10,000 reams of white bond

paper. Repayment of the loan will be made prior to

May 30, 1975, with income from the sale of the paper.



2. $10,000 to Audio Visual's Photographic Sales Account to

be used to purchase photo materials and supplies. Re-

payment of the loan will be made prior to June 30, 1975,

with income from the sale of the photographic supplies.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Joyce,

carried without dissent.



42. Request for Interfund Loan, DRI



President Ward requested approval of an interfund loan from

the DRI Contingency Fund to the following sales accounts

to be used as operating funds, with loans to be repaid from

any reserves generated by the accounts or returned to the

Contingency Fund when the account is no longer needed:



$10,000 to Graphic Arts and Publications

15,000 to LAP Workshop

42,000 to Aviation Sales (this loan plus the use of an

$18,226 engine replacement reserve will provide

a $60,226 operating fund)

1,000 to telephone and freight clearing

2,500 to LAP Xerox Sales

1,000 to CWRR Xerox Sales



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Joyce,

carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned at 5:00 P.M. and reconvened on Saturday,

July 27, 1974 at 9:15 A.M., with all Regents and Officers again

in attendance who were present the previous day.



Acting President Anderson reported that $200,000 had been receiv-

ed from Howard Hughes, representing the 4th annual installment of

the 20-year commitment to the School of Medical Sciences.



Chairman Jacobsen noted that Dr. James Anderson was concluding

his tenure as Acting President of UNR, and expressed to him, on

behalf of the Board, appreciation for his excellent service to

the University in that capacity.



43. Capital Improvement Request for 1975-79



Mr. Harry Wood, System Architect, reviewed an analysis of

construction cost increases, prepared at the request of the

44. 1975-77 Operating Budget Request



Mr. K. Donald Jessup, Director of Institutional Studies

and Budget, presented the 1975-77 Operating Budget request,

noting that the document contained an addendum to the

budget submitted at the June meeting. (All documents sub-

mitted with the agenda or distributed at the meeting are

on file in the Chancellor's Office.)



In the discussion following, Dr. Beaulieu reported an

action by the UNR Faculty Senate which recommended "no

dramatic increase" in the budget for Men's Intercollegi-

ate Athletics and recommended that the Intercollegiate

Athletics budget not be submitted as a separate appropri-

ation area.



Acting President Anderson submitted a recommendation for

a change in the Intercollegiate Athletics budget from that

recommended by the Chancellor, specifically, that 9.25 FTE

professional positions be requested, and $40,000 in operat-

ing funds for each year, together with the appropriate out-

of-state travel, be requested from State appropriation. In

addition, Dr. Anderson requested that the Intercollegiate

Athletics budget be included as a part of the UNR budget

request, rather than as a separate appropriation area.



Statements concerning the Intercollegiate Athletics budget

request were also made by Dr. Joseph Lipke and Mr. Bill

Parrish, UNR's Booster Club, and Tom Mayer, ASUN President.



In the discussion concerning the budget request for the

School of Medical Sciences, Dean George Smith spoke in

support of the Chancellor's recommendation, and Dr. Beau-

lieu spoke on behalf of the UNR Faculty Senate in opposi-

tion to the Chancellor's recommendation.



The meeting adjourned for lunch and reconvened at 1:05 P.M.



Discussion resumed on Item #44, 1975-77 Operating Budget Request.



Mr. Jessup resumed his presentation, detailing the request

for new programs included in the budget document.



Mr. Julio Lucchessi, representing the State Architects

Association, spoke in support of the proposed program in

Architecture and Urban Design.



Chancellor Humphrey discussed the recommendation contained

in the budget request for an increase in fees, beginning

for the Fall semester, 1975, requesting that the Board

approve the level of revenue anticipated from student fees

but that, in response to a request from the UNR Faculty

Senate, additional time be allowed to consider the method

of fee assessment. (The budget document had proposed a

per-credit fee assessment procedure.)



President Donnelly spoke in opposition to the proposed in-

crease in fees for CCD, from $8 to $10 per credit. Addi-

tional statements in opposition to the increase in fees

were submitted by Clarence Matthews, CCCC Student Body

President; Dr. Ernest Searles, CCCC Faculty Senate Chair-

man; Mrs. Isabel Ashelman, CCCC Advisory Board; Dr. J.

Clark Davis, Executive Vice President, WNCC: and Dr. J.

Stephen Nicholson, Executive Vice President, CCCC.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the previous UNS cost of

instruction studies indicated that the cost of instruc-

tion per FTE student was basically the same for CCD and

the lower division of the Universities, and that in view

of that fact he could not recommend an increase for lower

division students at UNR and UNLV if the CCD fees were not

increased. President Donnelly opposed not increasing the

UNR and UNLV fees.



Mr. Morris moved to delete from the budget request the

proposed increase in fees for CCD and to increase the

request for State appropriation to fund the difference.

Motion seconded by Mrs. Joyce. Motion carried.



Dr. Beaulieu and Dr. Mc Cullough urged that if fees are

not to be increased for CCD students, the fee for lower

division courses at the Universities also not be increased.



Mr. Morris moved to delete from the budget request the

proposed increase in the lower division course fees for

University divisions and to increase the request for State

appropriation to fund the difference. Motion seconded by

Rev. Kohn.



Motion was then withdrawn.



Mr. Morris moved to modify the Chancellor's recommenda-

tion of $10 per credit for lower division courses to

$8.50 per credit and request an increase in the State

appropriation to fund the difference. Motion seconded

by Mr. Steninger, failed by the following roll call vote:



No - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Jacobsen,

Mrs. Joyce, Dr. Lombardi

Yes - Rev. Kohn, Mr. Morris, Mr. Steninger,

Miss Thompson



Mr. Steninger asked that a report comparing the cost of

instruction in College parallel courses between CDD and

the University be submitted at a subsequent meeting.



Miss Thompson moved to substitute Dr. James Anderson's

recommendation for Intercollegiate Athletics for that

of the Chancellor, except that the request for a separate

appropriation area be retained. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Joyce, failed by the following roll call vote:



No - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Buchanan, Rev. Kohn,

Dr. Lombardi, Mr. Morris, Mr. Steninger

Yes - Mrs. Joyce, Miss Thompson

Abstain - Mr. Jacobsen



Mr. Morris requested that some consideration be given to

a change in the policy governing out-of-state travel where-

by the University would be permitted to use in-state travel

funds for travel to states contiguous with Nevada. Chanc-

ellor Humphrey agreed that proposed legislation would be

drafted and returned to the Board in September.



Mr. Morris moved that the Chancellor's recommended budget

request be adopted as modified by the Chancellor and

amended by the Board in earlier action. Motion seconded

by Miss Thompson, carried.



Note to minutes: Draft budget amended as follows:



In addition to those changes contained in the addendum

to the request submitted with the agenda:



1. Per credit fee for CCD remained at $10 per credit

($8 registration fee and $2 capital improvement

fee) with State appropriation to be increased

sufficiently to cover the difference in the pro-

jected revenue.



2. Add to Basque Studies Program, UNR, .56 FTE profes-

sional staff, .20 FTE classified staff, and .02 FTE

student wages.



3. Add to Oral History Project, UNR, .14 FTE profes-

sional staff, .20 FTE classified staff, and .02 FTE

student wages.



The action agenda was completed and the Information Agenda was

submitted for consideration. The Information Agenda contained

the following items and is on file in the Chancellor's Office:



(1) Report of Foreign Travel

(2) Report of Budget Transfers

(3) Progress of University Projects

(4) Report of Disciplinary Cases

(5) Report of Purchases in Excess of $8000

(6) Report of Sports Broadcast Contract
