3. Chairman's Report



Chairman Whitley announced that in an effort to aid Campuses

in preparing affirmative action plans, the Board and the

Chancellor have arranged for Dr. Israel "Ike" Tribble to

return to Nevada to conduct workshops on recruiting and re-

taining minority students, faculty and staff. During the

last Regents Workshop, Dr. Tribble spoke very openly and

frankly about the problems of recruitment and retention of

minorities.



One workshop will be held in Reno on September 12 in the

Conference Room of the System Administration building, the

2nd workshop will be held September 13 in the Lobby of Ham

Hall on the UNLV Campus.



Chairman Whitley suggested a Fall Regents Workshop be held

sometime after the November meeting for Regents, Chancel-

lor's staff, Presidents, and Faculty Senate Chairmen. The

main focus would be the biennial budget but other UNS issues

also would be included.



4. Chancellor's Report



Chancellor Dawson explained that with the sale of bonds as

indicated in item 5 below, staff was determining whether or

not $600,000 could be issued as zero coupon College Savings

Bonds.



He explained the need for a master plan of each Campus and

believes the individual Campus master plans would be more

effective if merged into one single report. He proposed

creating a Statewide citizens' review committee and welcomed

nominations of citizens to serve on the committee. The

Chancellor also proposed $15,000 be provided to each Campus

to contribute to the master planning effort which would

encompass facilities planning in conjunction with academic

program planning efforts.



5. Approved a Resolution, Sale of Bonds



Approved the resolution for $4,600,000 State of Nevada Gen-

eral Obligation (Limited Tax) University of Nevada System

Building Bonds (Additionally Secured with Pledged Revenues)

Series October 1, 1988.



The 1987 Session of the Nevada State Legislature enacted

legislation authorizing the Board of Regents to issue gen-

eral obligation bonds on or before August 30, 1988, of the

State of Nevada in the amount of $4,600,000 to finance

construction of the following:



WNCC Expansion $2,000,000

UNR Graduate Research Facility $2,200,000

UNLV Alumni House $ 400,000



The funds to be used to retire this debt will come from the

special HECC Fund.



The Chancellor's Office is exploring the possibility of set-

ting aside $600,000 of this amount which could be purchased

in $1,000 increments for use as a College savings program.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the resolution to sell bonds.

Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



6. Report on UNS Computing Services



Dr. Donald Zitter, Director of UNS Computing Services, pre-

sented an overview report on academic and administrative

computing services of the UNSCS budget request for 1989-91

and informed Regents about the impact of decisions made in

the past which result in lack of a mainstream computing en-

vironment.



Requested in the 1989-91 Biennial Budget is $19.5 million

for telecommunications, academic and administrative

computing programs. A greater portion of the funds is

designed for academic computing which will enhance student

training and academic research by students and faculty.



Chairman Whitley relinquished the gavel to Vice Chairman

Gallagher.



7. Approved the 1989-91 UNS Biennial Budget



Approved the 1989-91 UNS Biennial Budget. Vice Chancellor

Ronald Sparks presented the budget. The budget is filed in

the Regents Office. An overview and highlights are found

in Ref. F, filed with the permanent minutes.



The total base budget request is $367.1 million which is a

26% increase over the current biennial budget. Included in

the projected revenues is an increase of $400 per semester

in out-of-state tuition bringing the total to $1,500 per

semester. Vice Chancellor Sparks stated that UNS has not

raised these fees in 5 years, and with this increase it is

projected to continue to be well below the average western

states and significantly below the national average. CSUN

President Steve Evenson objected to the increase citing the

burden on foreign students and that with the new semester

under way there had not been time to discuss the matter with

other student officers or the various student body organiza-

tions. He requested a delay in approval of the increase.



Vice Chancellor Sparks explained that a summary of the de-

tailed budget request is being prepared for distribution to

Legislators and the lay public.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the 1989-91 UNS Biennial

Budget Request as presented conditioned upon review of the

proposed out-of-state tuition increase with final action to

be taken at the October Board of Regents meeting. Dr.

Eardley seconded.



Mr. Foley stated that, in his opinion, the Board of Regents

has delegated a most important function, the budget process,

to the Chancellor's Office. He feels strongly that the mem-

bers of the Board should be well versed on the budget and

had requested a workshop to address the budget. He acknow-

ledged that the workshop was held but the budgets were not

completed at that time. He requested that another workshop

be held to discuss each institution's budget.



Vice Chancellor Sparks reminded the Board that more than a

year ago the Board of Regents approved the budget parameters

used in construction of this budget and emphasized that the

Chancellor's Office does not approve institutional budgets.

The process includes consolidating the institutional budgets

into one System document and overseeing that the agreed upon

parameters are followed.



In answer to a question from Dr. Eardley, Vice Chancellor

Sparks stated that the System will seek full funding of the

Base Budget as its first priority. President Crowley added

that the Governor or Legislature could change UNS priorities

and fund only certain items in the budget. Should that

happen, the System would have to address the issue of not

achieving 100% funding of formulas.



Mr. Steve Evenson, CSUN President, stated the CSUN would

support full funding of formula at the Legislature and that

fighting over which institution receives more funding is

detrimental to the System.



Mrs. Gallagher, a member of the Legislative Committee, stat-

ed that with the loss of State Senator James Gibson, who

thoroughly understood the State budgeting process and higher

education funding, it is anticipated the funding formula

will have to be explained in depth to the Legislature. It

is imperative that the Board of Regents and all UNS employ-

ees speak with one voice on this issue.



Mr. Klaich commended the students for their support of full

funding of formulas and stated that the Board had input in

the budget building process and must stand behind its budget

undertaking.



Motion carried.



The meeting recessed until 10:00 A.M. Friday, August 26, 1988,

with all members present except Mr. Karamanos.



8. Approved Plans, Mackay School of Mines. UNR



Approved the plans for the Mackay School of Mines Phase III

at UNR, presented by Mr. William Hancock, Casazza, Peetz

and Hancock, architectural firm.



The UNR Campus has been placed on the National Register of

Historical Places with the Mackay School of Mines being the

second oldest building on the Campus. In keeping with the

design, historical features of this building and the ad-

jacent buildings and grounds will be preserved wherever

possible.



President Crowley informed the Board that this is a $9

million project. $4 million has already been raised from

private funds with help from the Board of Counselors. Sec-

retary of State Frankie Sue Del Papa, a former Regent who

has been instrumental in seeking funding for this project,

serves on that Board.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the plans for the Mackay School

of Mines Phase III at UNR. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion

carried.



Mrs. Sparks stated that Ms. Del Papa would like to see the

Mackay Silver displayed in a high security vault and ques-

tioned if that was reasonable. President Crowley stated

that the issue is being addressed. This would require 24-

hour security personnel.



9. Approved Emeritus, UNLV



Approved emeritus status to be granted posthumously to:



Dr. Charles Vanda, Emeritus Director of the Performing Arts

Center

Dr. Charles Bucher, Emeritus Professor of Health, Physical

Education and Recreation



Mr. Foley moved approval of emeritus status at UNLV. Mrs.

Sheerin seconded. Motion carried.



10. Approved Stipend for Administrative Duties, University of

Nevada Press



Approved a stipend equal to 10% of their salaries for Dr.

John Irsfeld and Mr. Nick Cady for assuming additional ad-

ministrative duties in connection with the University of

Nevada Press, effective August 15, 1988.



Mr. Rick Stetter resigned as Director of the University of

Nevada Press effective August 19, 1988. He has accepted a

similar position in Texas. Chancellor Dawson has appointed

a Press Executive Advisory Board to oversee the day-to-day

operations. Members are Dr. John Irsfeld, Dr. Wilbur

Shepperson and Dr. William Douglass. Mr. Cady will serve as

Acting Director of the Press and Dr. Irsfeld will serve as

Director of the Executive Advisory Board.



A search committee will be established to fill the Director

position. It is anticipated a new Director could be hired

by July 1, 1989.



Mr. Foley moved approval of a stipend equal to 10% of the

salaries for Dr. John Irsfeld and Mr. Nick Cady for addi-

tional administrative duties at the University of Nevada

Press. Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.



11. Approved Contract, UNLV



Approved granting a 3-year contract of employment to James

Bolla, Head Women's Basketball Coach.



Mrs. Sparks moved approval of a 3-year contract for James

Bolla at UNLV. Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



12. Approved UNS Code Changes



Approved the following changes to the UNS Code:



A. Amendments, Section 4.2.1, 4.3.1, 5.4.7(c), 5.9.2(b)



At its April 7-8, 1988 meeting, the Board approved the

elimination of a multi-range salary schedule for Com-

munity College faculty which necessitates certain

changes to the Code (Ref. B, Attachment 1, filed

with the permanent minutes).



B. Amendments, Section 5.2.3, Denial of Appointment with

Tenure, Salary Increases, Promotion or Reappointment,

and 5.2.4, Reconsideration of Personnel Action Denying

Appointment with Tenure, Salary, Promotion or Reappoint-

ment (Ref. C, Attachment 2, filed with the permanent

minutes).



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the UNS Code changes. Mrs.

Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



13. Approved Handbook Change, UNS Early Retirement Incentive

Program



Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 3, Section 21,

UNS Early Retirement Incentive Program, General Provisions,

Plans I and II, paragraph 1. This change would extend the

program for 5 years making the expiration date June 30,

1995.



GENERAL PROVISIONS



Plans I and II



1. This Program only applies to A or B contract profession-

al staff of the University of Nevada-Reno, University of

Nevada, Las Vegas, Clark County Community College,

Northern Nevada Community College, Truckee Meadows Com-

munity College, Western Nevada Community College, and

the Special Units and will only be in effect upon ap-

proval by the Board of Regents. This Program will ex-

pire on June 30, 1995, unless extended by the Board of

Regents.



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of the Handbook change extending

the UNS Early Retirement Incentive Program to June 30, 1995.

Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



14. Approved the Use of Regents Special Projects Funds



Approved up to $15,000 for each institution to be set aside

from the Regents Special Projects Fund for assistance in the

preparation of a Campus facilities master plan. With the

continued growth of UNS institutions, Chancellor Dawson felt

that it is imperative that each Campus have a comprehensive

physical plant master plan in conjunction with academic

planning. These plans require an outside consultant and, in

the case of the Universities, the cost for the plans could

run as high as $50,000. Any amount over $15,000 would be

borne by the institution from its Capital Improvement Fee

Fund. The Chancellor stated that a schedule for completion

of the Master Plan would be established and reported to the

Board of Regents.



Mrs. Sheerin requested that guidelines and report format be

submitted to the Board. President Crowley advised the Board

that each institution probably will have different

priorities.



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of using up to $15,000 for each

institution from the Regents Special Projects Funds for

Campus facilities master planning with the stipulation that

guidelines be brought back to the Board. Mrs. Sparks sec-

onded. Motion carried.



15. Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee



A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Commit-

tee meeting, held August 25, 1988, were made by Regent

Joseph M. Foley, Chairman.



(1) Approved the establishment of new Departments in the

College of Hotel Administration at UNLV.



The three academic Departments to be established are:

the Department of Food and Beverage Management, the

Department of Hotel Management, and the Department of

Hospitality Administration and Tourism. At present,

there are no plans to establish separate majors within

the College.



Since its inception, the College of Hotel Administra-

tion has been administered by a Dean without depart-

mental structure. However, because the College has

grown to some 1,100 majors and 30 faculty members,

these changes are now necessary.



This action will provide management relief, improve

student counseling, improve faculty-peer relations,

and encourage innovation through decentralization. It

is anticipated that no additional financial resources

will be required. Existing budgets will be redistrib-

uted among the 3 Departments.



(2) Approved the following Handbook changes, Title 4,

Chapter 14, Section 10.2, System Core Requirements, to

waive certain requirements for students completing a

second degree:



2. Students earning a second associate of arts, as-

sociate of science, or baccalaureate degree are

not required to repeat the University of Nevada

System core of fifteen credits.



Evidence of completion of the legislative re-

quirements of U. S. and Nevada Constitutions is

required of all second degree students.



2.13. The Universities and Community Colleges are

encourged to exchange ideas in the develop-

ment and improvement of UNS requirements.

While institutions are to work cooperative-

ly in the development and improvement of

UNS requirements, each institution has the

continuing responsibility for determining

the character of its own program.



Mr. Foley moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Academic Affairs Committee. Mrs. Sheerin seconded.

Motion carried.

18. Report and Recommendations of the UNS Estate Fund Committee



A report and recommendations of the UNS Estate Fund Commit-

tee meetings, held August 10 and 23, 1988, were made by

Regent Joan Kenney, Chairman.



August 10. 1988 - Chancellor Dawson reviewed the purpose of

the Committee and stated that inasmuch as this was the first

time through the process of receiving and reviewing propos-

als from the institutions, it is evident that making some

procedural changes at the onset of this process might help

avoid problems in the future. He cited the large number of

proposals received: 73 incentive grant proposals and 88

competitive proposals. It was apparent that the guidelines

were interpreted differently at the various institutions,

but he praised the Campuses for the response within the very

short time-frame allotted for this first year.



He stated that it became apparent in reviewing the proposals

that one common denominator is the great need for telecom-

munications/computing/information/communications equipment

throughout UNS. He recommended that the Committee consider

taking more time than had been originally scheduled for re-

view of the proposals, that in the future this process might

be better applied on a two-year basis rather than each year,

and that in the category of competitive grants, funds might

be targeted to address critical needs and priorities previ-

ously identified by the Board of Regents. He suggested re-

quests could be grouped together if they share common goals.

(See letter attached dated August 10, 1988 from Chancellor

Dawson, filed in the Regents Office.)



Mr. Dawson stressed that whatever decisions are made, UNS

would be held accountable for the use of these funds. Dur-

ing the discussion it became apparent that each institution

had set up the required committee to review and recommend

to the President those requests to be forwarded to the

Estate Fund Committee. Each Campus committee formed its

particular guidelines, and an extensive review and prioriti-

zation of proposals was accomplished.



INCENTIVE GRANTS



The Committee discussed various incentive proposals. The

Committee agreed to recommend that the amended incentive

grants be recommended to the Board of Regents, but not to

exceed the allotted amount.



COMPETITIVE GRANTS



Dr. Crowley explained that the Estate Fund Procedures

Committee, charged with creation of policies and procedures

governing distribution of the estate fund monies held

numerous discussions before finalizing them for presentation

to the Board for adoption. The faculty members of that

Committee felt that competitive grants should be judged by

their quality. He also said there was strong sentiment on

the Committee to make all grants competitive and that the

subsequent creation of incentive awards was deliberately

intended to provide some funds for all UNS units, thereby

preserving 50% of the money for open competition. The

Committee also discussed whether hiring an outside consult-

ant to review proposals might be a viable alternative.



Mr. Eardley stated that inasmuch as the proposals (88)

submitted covered a wide range of subjects that he did not

feel qualified to judge based upon quality, he suggested the

incentive formula be expanded to apply to all funds.



Mr. Evenson stated he didn't think the competitive proposals

should have been prioritized on the Campuses before submis-

sion to this Committee. Further, he stated that if the

Committee did not now review the proposals, it was not

meeting its mandate. He related that he felt the proposals

could be reviewed using Systemwide impact as criteria in

terms of numbers of persons who would benefit.



It was agreed that in the future more stringent guidelines

should be set prior to the call for proposals and that

perhaps those guidelines should be set around Systemwide

needs or themes, perhaps having more than one theme per year

as had been proposed by the Chancellor: computing/informa-

tion/communications, health care/nursing, minority student

access, faculty development, etc.



Having determined that the proposals had been through

stringent screening at the Campus level, the Committee felt

it would be prudent to seek faculty input about the proposal

to distribute all funds for 1989-90 based upon the formula

driving incentive grants. Presidents would be responsible

for selecting grants to receive funding.



Dr. Eardley moved that inasmuch as there has been signifi-

cant competitive review at the Campus level, the Committee

is interested in whether or not Campus constituencies would

be amenable to distributing competitive funds consistent

with the incentive grant formula for one year only.



August 23. 1988 - In reviewing the decision reached at the

last meeting, Chancellor Dawson stated the Committee had

agreed to accept the incentive grant proposals submitted by

the Campuses so long as they were within the amount of funds

authorized by the Board of Regents Handbook; with one ex-

ception UNR had withdrawn a proposal, and had temporarily

substituted one from the competitive list. After further

review by their Campus committee they will request that a

proposal for printing equipment be accepted as the replace-

ment. He stated that the Committee had deliberated for some

time on how to distribute the competitive funds and had end-

ed by suggesting those funds might be divided along the same

basis as the incentive grants. Mr. Dawson reminded the Com-

mittee that this manner of distribution would not be in ac-

cordance with the testimony given to the State Legislature.

The Committee had also agreed that in the future more defin-

itive guidelines are needed, that the call for proposals

might limit the number to be submitted from each Campus,

and that there be a limit on topic(s) to be addressed.

Chancellor Dawson suggested that the Committee consider

setting a series of meetings for the Fall to review and

strengthen the guidelines.



Dr. Crowley added that at the Presidents' Council it was

agreed that the competitive funds should be divided in the

same manner as the incentive funds for this first year only,

and that the University portion of the funds should be

divided evenly between UNR and UNLV.



Mr. Wilkins pointed out that DRI has submitted a proposal

which needed to be discussed prior to any decision by the

Committee. (See letter dated August 23, 1988, from Dr.

Cochran on file in the Regents Office.)



Dr. Crowley related that his Campus committee had reviewed

the options and felt the Estate Fund Committee had done as

well under the circumstances as it could; but that in the

future, they relished a true competitive review of the

proposals. They also agreed with a 2-year cycle of funding,

with a system review, and that four or five central themes

should be developed. By limiting the number of proposals,

they felt it would not only allow a focus for the proposals,

but this would also allow for the use of outside consultants

in the review process.



Dr. Eardley stated he feels the Board should be more involv-

ed in setting the priorities and focus for the funds. Fur-

ther, he suggested a check list be developed to aid in

screening proposals.



Dr. Marchant stated that he felt the Committee members were

aware that 1) there would be less time to complete the pro-

posal cycle this first time, and, 2) that the process would

need to be refined. He related that in his judgement the

Regents have taken great pains to have a strong Presiden-

tial administration, and that group (Presidents' Council)

had agreed to a distribution of the funds, and he did not

think this Committee should second guess these Administra-

tors, but should serve as consultants only.



Dr. Cochran related that he did not feel Committee decisions

would be "second-guessing" the Presidents. He pointed out

that if funds are distributed in this manner, that three

institutions cannot even fund their first priority. He also

pointed out TMCC presented a proposal which involved the

other three Community Colleges, and that there had also been

a System-wide project submitted. He stated that DRI faculty

were in favor of a true competitive process, that because

they are dependent upon grant funds, that rejection of a

proposal would not be devastating. He urged that only pro-

posals which would benefit Systemwide be funded, and also

felt that the System was more valuable than any one of its

parts. In following this procedure, he stated he felt it

would strengthen the Board's acknowledgement of a System.



Dr. Eardley moved that the competitive funds be distributed

to the institutions on the same basis as incentive funds,

with the exception that the total amount for the two Univer-

sities will be equally divided.



Discussion continued on the manner of distribution. Dr.

Cochran explained that a rigorous process was used at DRI

with only those proposals which would benefit the System and

other institutions being forwarded. He stated he was aware

several of the other institutions went through a similar

process. He urged that the Committee fund at least the 1st

proposal of each institution and divide the remaining funds,

if any. In answer to a question, Regent Eardley was inform-

ed that these proposals are for projects which would not be

funded by the State. Dr. Marchant related that the System-

wide procedures committee had put together process guide-

lines, but not criteria guidelines.



Dr. Marchant moved that the Committee request the Board, in

consultation with the Council of Presidents, to make recom-

mendations on setting guidelines for expenditure of Estate

funds for future years.



As clarification of the fund, Chancellor Dawson explained

that the funds collected are to be divided equally between

K-12 and the University System. The System is allowed to

spend $2.5 million each year with remaining funds put into

the endowment. When the endowment fund reaches $2.5 million

then any overage would also go into the annual amount which

could be spent for that year.



President Crowley stated that the guidelines aided the

Committee in evaluating the proposals, but there must be a

more defined process in order to handle this endeavor with

expertise. This being the first year to determine where the

Estate Funds would be utilized was very complicated and the

Committee has learned what needs to be addressed in the fu-

ture. President Crowley stated that if the proposed list is

not presented at the next Interim Finance Committee meeting,

it could cause an offset of the System budget requests.



Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of the report and recommenda-

tions of the UNS Estate Fund Committee, and that they be

presented to the Interim Finance Committee, and recommended

that the proposed list of incentive grants and competitive

grants be distributed immediately to members of the Board

of Regents. Mr. Foley seconded.



President Maxson stated that the Campus committee received

the proposals from the individual Departments, and then

performed a comprehensive screening of each proposal.



Mr. Klaich stated he understands that because this being

the first year to receive Estate Funds the process is not

perfect, but strongly recommends that the guidelines be

redefined with the knowledge which was learned during this

year's process.



Dr. Eardley strongly urged that the Board of Regents direct

and work with the Committee in redefining the guidelines.



Motion carried.



Chairman Whitley requested the Chancellor to meet with

Regents and Presidents to redefine the guidelines.



19. Report and Recommendations of the Legislative Committee



A report and recommendations of the Legislative Committee

meeting, held August 26, 1988, were made by Regent Daniel J.

Klaich, Chairman.



(1) Approved (or reaffirmed) the following items to be

submitted to the 1989 Nevada State Legislature:



A. Higher Education Capital Construction (HECC) Funds

(Reaffirm)



Originally, HECC funds in the amount of $5 million

per year were earmarked for capital construction

within UNS. In 1983, the State Legislature direct-

ed these funds to the General Fund. It is request-

ed that UNS seek legislation which would return

this $5 million per year to be used for much need-

ed capital projects.



B. AJR 34 (Reaffirm)



AJR 34 passed in the 1987 State Legislature, would

increase the State's bonding indebtedness limit to

2%.



C. Bonding for Residence Halls, UNLV (Approval)



Approved to seek legislative authority for bonding

in the amount of $10 million to construct residence

halls, dining commons, and Greek housing on the

UNLV Campus. Debt service on the bonds will come

from revenues charged for using the facilities.



Chancellor Dawson clarified that this request is

for revenue bonds not State general obligation

funds and that if the Legislature does not pass

authority for bonding there is a possibility of

seeking a short-term bank loan for several

million.



(2) Report on Economic Status of Events Centers



A. Lawlor Events Center (LEC) - Mr. Ashok Dhingra,

Vice President for Finance and Administration at

UNR, introduced Executive Director of LEC Rick

Linio, and then proceeded to give a historical

review of LEC. LEC was established in 1983 for

the purpose of bringing events to the Reno/Sparks

area to strengthen community and State relations.

In 1984-85 the entertainment industry was on an

upswing, therefore LEC produced a profit during

that fiscal year. In 1986 LEC experienced a short-

fall due to lack of concert attendance and UNR

obtained revenue bond funds to overcome the short-

fall; in 1987 the concert attendance doubled; and

in 1988 the concert attendance again fell to the

1986 level, hence another shortfall. Mr. Dhingra

emphasized that the inconsistent funding for oper-

ating LEC is largely due to the unpredictable en-

tertainment industry.



UNR has explored various instruments to stabilize

LEC operating expenses such as managing the Pioneer

Theatre, installing a new ticketing system, addi-

tional advertising, and reducing expenditures

in operating and personnel. Future plans for

diversification include a $1 million project to

renovate the stage area for opera, dance, and

theatre productions, which was proposed in the

original plans but there was not enough funding;

resolve public relation problems with non-revenue

producing organizations, such as high schools for

its graduation ceremonies and basketball programs;

reduce expenditure; and seek State support for

operating expenses and capital improvement projects

such as the renovation of the stage area.



Upon questioning, Mr. Dhingra informed the Commit-

tee that the Executive Director approves all con-

tracts for reserving space for events and there

is no legal procedure to discourage an entity.

Reservations are on a first-come-first-serve basis.

He further stated that in order to reserve space

at LEC, the entity must have reputable financial

standing and can be required to pay up front.



When the bonds were refinanced a savings of

$800,000 was realized and was split between the

two event centers for operating expenses. The $1

million request for renovation is not a repair,

rather it would enhance the facility so that it

could attract additional cultural events. Mr.

Klaich suggested that this request be placed on

the UNS Capital Improvement list.



It was suggested that such entities as UNR Con-

tinuing Education utilize LEC meeting rooms, and

Mr. Dhingra stated that various UNR functions are

held at LEC, but they too must pay the operating

expenses to utilize the facility.



Mr. Foley suggested that the Board of Regents

support UNR efforts in obtaining LEC operating

expense from the Nevada State Legislature.



B. Thomas and Mack Events Center - President Maxson

introduced Thomas and Mack Events Center Executive

Director Dennis Finfrock and proceeded to inform

the Committee that like LEC the Thomas and Mack

Events Center only charges out of pocket expenses

to non-profit organizations such as the School

District and UNLV Departments.



He emphasized that UNLV is one of the first Las

Vegas attractions to visitors upon their arrival.

It is a community resource without city subsidy and

he felt that it is a just request in approaching

the Legislature for funding. He suggested the Sys-

tem could request the sales tax generated from

the use of the facility be returned to the events

centers. This could then defray expenses of hav-

ing non-profit entities use the facilities and

may also develop a reserve account. It is esti-

mated that the Thomas and Mack Events Center could

generate $200,000 per year from this sales tax.



Mr. Finfrock stated that the entertainment industry

usually considers the Las Vegas casinos before the

Thomas and Mack Events Center. Although the com-

petition is very difficult, the casinos are not

responding to concert engagements which are hosted

at the events center.



In regard to the Silver Bowl, Thomas and Mack

Events Center is subsidizing $100,000 to the

Silver Bowl which hopes to become solid within

1 or 2 years. The turf at the Silver Bowl has an

8-year warranty with 5 years remaining. A reserve

account should be developed for maintenance when

warranty is terminated. The State may be request-

ed to match some improvement funds for the Silver

Bowl.



Mr. Finfrock expressed his appreciation to the

Board of Regents for its support and freedom to

administer the Thomas and Mack Events Center.



Mrs. Gallagher emphasized the need to explain to

the Legislature the concerns regarding the two

events centers, especially the issue regarding non-

profit entities utilizing the facilities. She

requested a thorough cost analysis from both event

centers to be presented to the Legislature. Vice

Chancellor Sparks informed the Committee that the

tax revenue mentioned by President Maxson is in-

cluded in the base budget.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendations

of the Legislative Committee. Mrs. Gallagher seconded.

Motion carried.



20. Report and Recommendation of the Investment Committee



A report and recommendation of the Investment Committee

meeting, held August 25, 1988, were made by Regent Daniel J.

Klaich, Chairman.



(1) Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 10,

Section 4, Allocation of Investment Income Earned on

UNS Pooled Cash Assets.



Board of Regent's policy provides that 80% of the

investment income earned on UNS Pooled Cash Assets is

allocated to the institutions and 20% to the Board of

Regents and the System Administration. The 20% is

equivalent to 160 basis points of the average invested

principal. An exception to the policy is made with

respect to bond funds which receive 100% of the invest-

ment income. Due to the fact that other types of funds

desire to participate in the UNS Pooled Cash Asset Fund

the Investment Advisory Committee recommended that a

management fee be charged on all non-operating and

Foundation operating funds participating in the Fund.

An exception is to be made for bond funds only if there

is legal or contractual restrictions prohibiting man-

agement fees.



Section 4. Allocation of Investment Income Earned on

UNS Pooled Cash Assets



2.b.(2) A management fee equal to one-half of one per-

cent or fifty (50) basis points will be

charged on all non-operating and Foundation

operating funds invested in the UNS Pooled

Cash Assets Fund. An exception is to be made

for bond funds only if there is legal or con-

tractual restrictions prohibiting management

fees.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the report and recommendation

of the Investment Committee. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion

carried.



21. Approved Handbook Change, Special Reduced Registration Fee



Approved the following Handbook changes, Title 4, Chapter

17, Section 5.3, Special Reduced Registration Fee.



President Gwaltney requested approval to continue the tui-

tion waiver program benefitting TMCC's part-time faculty

and their spouses and financially dependent children. In

January, 1988 the Board approved the program on a trial

basis for one semester, and requested a follow-up report.



During the 1988 Spring semester 48 individuals registered

for 152 credits at a cost of $3,344. 28 were part-time

faculty, 15 were spouses, and 5 were children of part-

time faculty. It is felt the program has enhanced TMCC's

image among part-time faculty and has generated positive

feedback.



Presidents Crowley and Maxson requested that the 2 Univer-

sities be added to the policy to allow their part-time

faculty to also participate.



Section 5. Special Reduced Registration Fee



3. Eligible part-time professional faculty (eligibility to

be verified by their supervisor) receive a waiver of

of fees for Community College or University credit

classes up to the number of credit hours the part-time

faculty member has taught the previous or current se-

mester. The eligibility based on credit hours shall

not be cumulative from semester to semester. Those

professional part-time faculty who do not teach must

confer with their supervisor to determine appropriate

course equivalency for their services. In no case will

a supervisor authorize more than a total of 6 credit

hours of course equivalency per semester for such serv-

ice and the courses must be taken at the College of Uni-

versity in which they teach. Part-time professional

faculty shall be permitted to register for credit or

audit in any credit course with the usual limitations

as noted below.



a. Courses may only be taken during the Fall and Spring

regular semesters and must be taken at the College

or University where employed.



b. Only those courses where space is available may be

taken.



c. Lab fees are not included in this waiver.



d. Part-time faculty members shall not be entitled to

any privileges usually associated with registration;

e. g., intercollegiate athletic tickets.



e. This policy shall also extend to the spouses or fi-

nancially dependent children, as defined in Title 4,

Chapter 18, Section 5(5) of the Board of Regents

Handbook, of Truckee Meadows Community College part-

time faculty only.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the Handbook change regarding

Special Reduced Registration Fee. Mr. Klaich seconded.

Motion carried.



22. Approved Policy, Reassignment of Administrators, UNLV



Approved a policy governing reassignment of Administrators

who return to academic faculty ranks. See Ref. D, filed in

the Regents Office. (The Board approved similar policies

for UNR and Community Colleges in June 1988.)



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the policy governing reassign-

ment of Administrators at UNLV. Mrs. Kenney seconded. Mo-

tion carried.



23. Approved Easements, UNLV



Approved easements for Nevada Power Company relating to

electrical services for new UNLV housing units located in

the County of Clark, State of Nevada, in the Southeast

Quarter of Section 22, Township 21 South, Range 61 East,

final documents.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the easements for new UNLV

housing units. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



24. Approved Departmental Name Changes, UNR



Approved the following departmental name changes at UNR:



a. Counseling and Guidance-Personnel Services to Department

of Counseling and Educational Psychology



b. Educational Administration and Higher Education to

Department of Educational Leadership



Both changes have been approved by the College and Dean and

Dr. Eardley moved approval of the departmental name changes

at UNR. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.



25. Approved Amendment to Lease, UNR



Approved an amendment to the existing lease with Tahoe Acad-

emy, concerning the Fall/Winter tenants at the 4-H Camp at

Lake Tahoe, to retain the eastern portion of the property

for future UNR College of Agriculture use. General Counsel

Klasic will review lease prior to signature.



Dr. Eardley moved approval to amend existing lease with

Tahoe Academy for UNR College of Agriculture usage. Mrs.

Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



26. Approved Leases, UNR



Approved the following leases at UNR:

Mrs. Sparks seconded. Motion carried.



28. Approved Right-of-Entry for Survey and Exploration, UNR



Approved Right-of-Entry for Survey and Exploration for the

Department of the Army to enter the College of Agriculture

Experiment Station located on Kimlick Lane for twelve months

to survey, make test borings and carry out such other ex-

ploratory work as may be necessary to complete the investi-

gation being made of said lands by the U. S. Government,

effective 1 year from date signed by the Chancellor.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the Right-of-Entry for Survey

and Exploration on UNR property. Mr. Klaich seconded.

Motion carried.



29. Approved ASUN Constitution Changes, UNR



Approved the changes to the ASUN Constitution at UNR (Ref.

E, filed in the Regents Office).



These changes would delete Sections 330.0, 340.0, 420.0 and

440.0 of the present ASUN Constitution in their entirety and

replace them with the referenced material.



Mr. Klaich moved approval of the ASUN Constitution changes

at UNR. Dr. Eardley seconded. Motion carried.



30. Approved the Re-Roofing of Dandini Building, DRI



Approved seeking $66,500 from the Interim Finance Committee

for re-roofing of the Dandini building. DRI has a bond on

the building which covers part of the cost. If re-roofing

can be completed this Summer, a substantial savings would be

realized.



Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of seeking authorization to

re-roof the Dandini building at DRI. Mrs. Kenney seconded.

Motion carried.



It was explained that the bond issue expires prior to the

1989 Legislative Session and the roof is in dire need of

being re-roofed before the onset of Winter.



Mr. Foley requested General Counsel Klasic seek recourse of

action from the original contractor, as well as reimburse-

ment of funds.



31. Approved Resolution, NNCC



Approved Resolution No. 88-3. In July, 1988 the Board ap-

proved an NNCC request to borrow up to $175,000 from Valley

Bank of Nevada for a remodeling project. This resolution

designates the note as a qualified tax-exempt obligation

under Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of

1986, as amended, thereby allowing a more favorable interest

rate.



Dr. Eardley moved approval of the resolution declaring the

note as a qualified tax exempt obligation for NNCC. Mrs.

Kenney seconded. Motion carried.



32. Information Item: UNR Foundation Contract



President Crowley informed the Board of Regents that the UNR

Foundation will contract directly with John Midby and Asso-

ciates to build the John Midby-Daniel Byron Judicial Educa-

tion Center within the available funds.



The architect's final cost estimate is $4,400,000. Fund-

raising efforts have collected $3,700,000, including a

$1,500,000 Bureau of Justice Assistance Grant, and a

$1,000,000 gift from John Midby and Associates.



The Interim Finance Committee has approved increasing the

project cost not to exceed $4,400,000.



John H. Midby and Associates has offered to build the

facility for the Foundation. U. S. Department of Justice,

Office of Justice Programs-Bureau of Justice Assistance,

has approved the utilization of the firm of John Midby and

Associates to assist in negotiating and overseeing construc-

tion contracts.



John H. Midby and Associates will not receive remuneration

as their work is totally philanthropic.



This project has been designed and checked under a State
