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

Bride, carried without dissent.



2. Proposed Amendment of Board of Regents Bylaws



Chancellor Bersi recalled that an amendment to the Bylaws

had been proposed which would allow for the gaining of a

quorum of the Board by the use of a telephonic hookup.



Mr. Dan Tone, Director of Communications and Broadcasting,

UNR, explained how the teleconferencing system works and

provided a demonstration.



Mr. Mc Bride moved approval of the proposed amendment.

Motion seconded by Mr. Gallagher.



General Counsel Don Klasic asked that, for purposes of clar-

ification, the text of the proposed amendment be changed to

read "persons attending", instead of "participants in" the

meeting. The clarification was accepted and motion carried

without dissent, thereby amending Article II, Section 5,

subparagraph d of the Board of Regents Bylaws to read as

follows:



The presence of 5 or more members of the Board shall

constitute a quorum. A quorum of the Board shall be

5 or more members, who may be either physically present

or available by telephone hookup, provided that if a

quorum is gained by telephonic hookup, there are ar-

rangements for clear communication between the speaker

and others present at the meeting so that all persons

attending the meeting are adequately informed concern-

ing the proceedings. Any official action of the Board

shall require at least 5 affirmative votes.



3. Report of Faculty Workload Study



Chancellor Bersi recalled that during the past academic year

studies were completed at UNR and UNLV as a part of a re-

view of faculty workload at the 2 University Campuses. Sub-

sequently, a report has been compiled by the Chancellor's

Office using the information submitted by the Campuses.

That report, including the following summary, was distribut-

ed and is on file in the Chancellor's Office:



Background



On April 4, 1980 the University of Nevada System Board

of Regents requested that a study of faculty workload

be made at the System's two Universities, the University

of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and the University of Nevada,

Las Vegas (UNLV). Committees of faculty were appointed

at UNR and UNLV to undertake the study. Reports on

faculty workload have already been submitted by these

committees.



In April, 1981 the Regents requested that the Office of

the Chancellor coordinate the completion of the workload

study so that comparable data would be available from

the two Campuses.



A faculty workload report from the University of Nevada,

Las Vegas, had included the results of a survey of

faculty members. This survey was adapted to the Uni-

versity of Nevada, Reno, and conducted on that Campus

in the Spring of 1981. The Chancellor's Office assist-

ed in the compilation of data and coordination in the

presentation of survey results.



Included in this report is a short summary of the re-

sults of the standardized, self-administered question-

naire on workload, the report from the University of

Nevada, Las Vegas, and survey results from the Univer-

sity of Nevada, Reno.



Survey Results



The results of the workload survey demonstrate some

similarities and differences between the Campuses and

their instructional faculty. With minor exceptions,

the survey instruments used at each University were

identical, and comparisons can confidently be made.



A comparison of all of the averages of time spent by

faculty members reveals a strikingly similar level of

work performed. Table 1 below illustrates this finding.



TABLE 1

Public/Service Activities 2.7 2.7



Total/All Activities Hours Per Week 54.0 55.2



Formal contact hours for UNLV and UNR exceed 9 hours

per week - UNR formal classroom contact hours are 10.8

a week, and UNLV, 10.0 per week.



The total average workload of faculty at UNR is 97.8%

of the total average workload at UNLV, and teaching

load at UNLV, conversely, is 99.3% of the teaching load

at UNR. When dissimilarity of program type and level

is taken into consideration, the remarkably similar

numbers of hours that are committed weekly to each

activity is noteworthy. This similarity is further

noted in that the two studies were done independently

of each other and were designed to elicit a quick, ac-

curate response. Thus, it seems reasonable to say

that the survey reveals a fair summation of how the

average teacher at Nevada's two Universities spend the

time he or she has committed to the institution.



One observation should be made about such data compari-

sons. Although two persons might be academicians who

teach at the same institution, their areas of expertise

and assigned responsibilities might easily be so dis-

similar as to make a statistical comparison of how they

spend their time of limited utility. Assigned duties

in teaching and instruction, scholarship, and public

service do, of course, vary from faculty member to

faculty member.



Nursing Departments at both Campuses appear to carry

the largest workload with the largest amount of time

in teaching activities. Table 2 illustrates this fact.

As both Universities have pointed out, this mainly is

due to large amounts of necessary clinical supervision

and instruction.

Nursing Hours Per Week



Teaching Activities 45.2 43.0

Research Activities 5.9 11.0

Service Activities 9.9 10.0

Total 61.0 64.0



Further, data from the survey bear out traditional re-

lationships between various disciplines and the time

required for teaching them. For example, the instruc-

tors in service-course disciplines (e. g., English,

History, Mathematics) teach regular schedules with

large class sections, fewer extra preparations, and

adequate but lower levels of contact with students

outside the formal class period. Instructors in non-

service disciplines (e. g., Engineering, Business,

Geology) generally teach more formal contact classes,

therefore have a large commitment of time to prepara-

tion, but teach fewer students. Survey returns also

reveal that instructors in the performing Arts spend

a comparatively larger portion of their time in contact

with their students, more time in creative research

activities, and have a larger commitment to public

service activities. Tables 3, 4 and 5 illustrate

these relationships.

More specific results can be found in each report in-

cluded here from UNLV and UNR. Tremendous complexity

exists in higher education when workloads are examined.

Different disciplines have different teaching, public

service, and scholarly expectations. General observa-

tions should, therefore, be made with care.



Overall, however, survey results indicate that faculty

members at both Universities spend over a majority of

their time in teaching and instructional related activi-

ties and average over 50 hours per week when all work

assignments are taken into consideration.



Mr. Ross suggested that, since this was intended for in-

formation at this time, any discussion be deferred until

after Regents have an opportunity to read the report.



4. Report on Marching Band, UNR



President Crowley recalled that the Board had requested that

alternative possibilities for long term funding for the

Marching Band be examined. Alternatives considered include

ASUN support, Athletic Department support, and a variety of

private fund raising approaches, all of which have the seri-

ous problem of uncertainty and cannot serve as a basis for

long-term planning.



President Crowley reported that the Student Union Addition

Account, which was established at UNR several years ago,

appears to provide the kind of security and certainty re-

quired. He explained that $1 per credit is dedicated to

this account and is used to service the debt on the bonds

that were sold to finance the addition to the Travis Stu-

dent Union. There is a surplus in the account and there

will continue to be for the life of the bonds; i. e.,

through 1997. This surplus is adequate to cover the oper-

ating expenses of the Marching Band, and the bond covenants

allow for expenditures from the surplus for any legal pur-

pose.



Dr. Crowley recommended that:



(1) Whatever is required above what is currently avail-

able to fund the operating expenses of the Marching

Band for 1981-82 be taken from the surplus in the Stu-

dent Union Addition Account;



(2) In future years, the operating expenditures of the

Marching Band be funded from this surplus; and



(3) A plan be submitted to the Board of Regents by the

November meeting proposing other uses for the surplus

in the account.



By consensus, President Crowley's recommendations were

approved.



5. Further Report Concerning Ski Program, UNR



President Crowley recalled that at the last meeting of the

Board, the future of the Ski Program was discussed and he

was instructed to assemble and meet with a committee of in-

terested citizens and members of the University community

to look at the prospects for both short-term and long-term

funding for the program.



President Crowley reported that contributions totalling

$32,500 had been received through the Governor's efforts,

adding that the University had also received $3,000 directly

and an additional $3,500 in pledges. He stated that it was

his understanding that the Board would be willing to provide

some kind of matching amount in the event a solicitation was

successful and suggested that an appropriate amount would be

$15,000.



Mr. Buchanan moved that the Board provide $25,000 to fund

the Ski Team and use the funds received from the solicita-

tion drive to establish an endowment for future funding of

the program.



Following an extended discussion concerning the most ap-

propriate use of any available funds, Mr. Buchanan restated

his motion to provide that the Board allocate $20,000 to the

Ski Team for 1981-82 with any remaining funds to be put into

an endowment account. Motion seconded by Mr. Ross.



Mr. Mc Bride moved to amend the motion to provide that

$15,000 be allocated to each University, to be spent at the

discretion of the institutional President for support of

Intercollegiate Athletics, that these allocations be con-

sidered a final one-time appropriation. Motion amend sec-

onded by Mrs. Gallagher, failed by the following roll call

vote:



Yes - Mrs. Fong, Mr. Mc Bride, Mrs. Gallager

No - Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Cashell, Ms. Del Papa, Mr.

Karamanos, Mr. Ross



Mr. Buchanan's original motion to provide $20,000 from the

Board of Regents Special Projects Account for 1981-82, with

remaining funds to be placed in an endowment account, car-

ried by the following roll call vote:



Yes - Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Cashell, Ms. Del Papa, Mrs.

Gallagher, Mr. Karamanos, Mr. Ross

No - Mrs. Fong, Mc Mc Bride



6. Request to Discontinue Baccalaureate Program, UNR



President Crowley recommended that the baccalaureate program

in Office Administration be dropped from UNR's curriculum.

Such action, he stated, is consistent with trends in higher

education whereby the components of the program are better

offered by Community Colleges.



Dr. Crowley noted that Office Administration is no longer a

degree that is required by employers, and Colleges of Busi-

ness throughout the nation have been phasing out the courses

and the programs. UNR's master plan recommends an emphasis

on other programs in the College which have a much higher

demand.



Dr. Crowley stated that in consideration of the foregoing,

to continue this program would be a misallocation of impor-

tant faculty and related resources. Furthermore, he noted,

there are no majors in Office Administration and the curric-

ulum currently is taught by several part-time faculty on

letters of appointment.



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

carried without dissent.



7. Estimative Budget, Atmospherium Planetarium



President Crowley requested approval of the following esti-

mative budget for the Atmospherium Planetarium for 1981-82,

thereby permitting the purchase of equipment necessary to

establish a laser light show. The equipment is to be pur-

chased from a special disbursement from the Atmospherium

Planetarium Trust Fund and from current funding available

in the Box Office Sales Account.

Gallagher, carried without dissent.



8. Proposed Policy Relative to Agricultural Properties



President Crowley recalled that in the 1981 Session of the

Legislature, a bill was introduced dedicating the use of any

funds realized from the sale of certain agricultural lands

in Washoe County owned by the Board of Regents. That bill

was not passed; however, the spirit of that bill has been

embodied into a resolution for consideration by the Board of

Regents, as follows:



RESOLUTION NO. 81-8



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada System holds title to certain parcels of prop-

erty in Washoe County, Nevada, which parcels are used

for the conduct of instruction, research and public

service programs of the Fleischmann College of Agri-

culture; and



WHEREAS, these parcels of property are commonly referred

to as (1) the Valley Road Farm, (2) the Main Station

Farm and (3) the Jones Ranch; and



WHEREAS, it is desired that the value of these proper-

ties be protected and maintained for the benefit of the

College of Agriculture and its programs;



THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that it shall be the policy of

the Board of Regents that in the event that any portion

or all of the above described properties are sold, the

proceeds from such sale shall be placed in a trust fund,

and the principal and income of the trust fund utilized

for the following purposes and in the following order of

priority:



(a) To purchase land for an agricultural experiment

station;



(b) For improvements to an agricultural experiment

station;



or



(c) For improvements to the 4-H Camp.



AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that it shall be the policy

of the Board of Regents that any income from the trust

fund which is not expended pursuant to the above may

be used in order of priority, to supplement the oper-

ating budgets of:



(a) An agricultural experiment station;



(b) The 4-H Camp;



(c) The University of Nevada, Reno.



AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that expenditures from the

trust fund for such purposes as are described above

shall be subject to approval by the Board of Regents.



Mr. Ross moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Bride,

carried without dissent.



9. Award of Bids, Mackay School of Mines



President Crowley reported the following bids received for

construction of the new Mackay School of Mines building:



Bidder Name Base Bid



Hogan & Tingey Construction $5,450,000

Mc Kenzie Construction 5,498,000

S. J. Amoroso Construction 5,544,300

Mardian Construction 6,045,000

Vasko & Associates 5,638,000

Nevada Builders 5,669,890

Corrao Construction 5,637,437

Del E. Webb Corporation 5,599,000

TGK Constructors 5,668,000

Ormond Construction 5,997,000



President Crowley noted that the established construction

budget is $5,600,000, and the State Public Works Board re-

quests concurrence by the Board of Regents in the award of

a contract to Hogan & Tingey Construction in the amount of

$5,450,000. Chancellor Bersi recommended approval.



Mrs. Fong moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Gallagher, carried without dissent.



10. Final Plans, Phase IV, School of Medicine



Mr. Ronald Mentgen of Anshen and Allen presented the final

plans for Phase IV of the School of Medicine.



Following discussion of the plans and the schedule proposed

for award of bids and commencement of construction, Mr.

Buchanan suggested that in view of the concerns which have

been expressed about the future of the School, it would be

premature to proceed with construction of Phase IV. He

moved that the Board allocate funds for a study of the

School, and that the study address the following questions:



(1) Whether the School should report administratively to

the Chancellor's Office;



(2) Whether the program should be split so that the first

two years remain in Reno and the second two years be

moved to Las Vegas; and



(3) Whether the School should be transferred totally to

Las Vegas.



Motion seconded by Mr. Karamanos.



Mrs. Gallagher concurred in the request for such a study,

agreeing that a decision should be made as to the future

of the School.



Ms. Del Papa also agreed with the proposal for a study, sug-

gesting that something similar to the Law School Study Com-

mittee be utilized. However, she questioned whether a post-

ponment might not have an adverse affect on the bidding

process.



Mr. Hancock agreed that it would affect the bids, probably

causing them to be higher and suggested that there would be

less interest on the part of bidders to respond. In re-

sponse to a suggestion that the bids be received but defer

award of a contract until after the study is completed, Mr.

Hancock pointed out that this would be very unfair to the

contractors who spend the time and money to prepare a bid.

He suggested that if the Regents want to study this further,

the bidding process be halted.



Mr. Ross expressed concern about the loss of money already

expended for architectural and engineering work.



Mr. Buchanan moved that the Board direct that the bidding

process be stopped.



Dr. Crowley stated that he supported the idea of the study

proposed by Mr. Buchanan but suggested that the results of

such a study are not necessarily tied to the project under

discussion. Dr. Crowley explained that what is currently

housed on the UNR Campus is a facility for the basic sci-

ences program. Phase IV, the facility under discussion,

would be dedicated to use by biochemists who have been oc-

cupying space in the Chemistry building, as well as use by

people in the College of Agriculture. He emphasized that

this would be a basic science building and suggested that

even if a decision is made ultimately to move the School to

Las Vegas, it would be difficult to envision that the Re-

gents would want to move this building.



Mr. Mc Bride suggested that since Mr. Claude Howard had made

a substantial contribution toward this building, he should

be consulted before any decision is made that may be con-

trary to his wishes.



Mr. Buchanan agreed to delay his motion until after Mr.

Howard could be consulted and suggested that an attempt be

made to contact him before the meeting adjourned.



Mrs. Gallagher pointed out that the plans have been prepared

and the Regents have been assured that the facility is need-

ed for the School as well as the whole University. She not-

ed that any further delay would result in increased costs

due to inflation. She urged that the study be done but that

the building be allowed to proceed.



Mr. Ross agreed, suggesting that to delay approval of the

plans would increase the cost of the building and might

even result in eliminating the building altogether. He

pointed out that $400,000 has already been expended in A/E

costs, a contribution from Mr. Howard was accepted and a

grant from the Fleischmann Foundation was made with the

understanding that the facility would be constructed at

UNR.



Mr. Mc Bride suggested that by proceeding with the building,

the Regents are in effect determining that the first two

years of the School will remain in Reno; therefore, the only

two questions remaining to be addressed in the study pro-

posed by Mr. Buchanan are (1) transferring the administra-

tive supervision of the School to the Chancellor; and (2)

placing the second two years of the program in Las Vegas.



Mr. Buchanan suggested that when the study is completed,

the $4 million building could be constructed in Las Vegas

to house the last two years of the School. He proposed that

action be deferred on the bids, thereby permitting the funds

to be transferred to Las Vegas for such a purpose.



It was agreed that further discussion would be deferred un-

til after the consultation with Mr. Howard.



(Note to Minutes: It was subsequently agreed that this

would be considered at a special meeting to be called the

following week.)



11. Review of Final Plans and Award of Bids, UNR Special Events

Pavilion



Mr. Ralph Casazza and Mr. Cal Peetz, together with con-

sultant Ralph Anderson, were present to review the final

plans for the UNR Special Events Center.



Mr. Buchanan noted that bids for this project have already

been received and questioned the reasonableness of reviewing

final plans at this point.



Mr. Buchanan moved approval of the final plans. Motion

seconded by Mrs. Fong.



President Crowley reported that bids had been received and

it had been anticipated that a recommendation would be made

for award of a contract; however, a problem has developed

with respect to the bid offered by the apparent low bidder

which necessitates further negotiation and discussion.



Mr. William Hancock, of the State Public Works Board, ex-

plained the problem with the apparent low bidder, TGK,

noting that they had identified an error in their bid, and

the State Public Works Board would be considering over the

next several days the options available in this matter.



Mr. Mc Bride moved that this matter be tabled until nego-

tiations are complete and that a special meeting be called

for the following week to take the necessary action. Motion

seconded by Mr. Buchanan, carried without dissent.



12. Revenue Bond Sale



Vice Chancellor Dawson reported that bids for the sale of

revenue bonds for the UNLV Hotel and Business Administration

building and the CCCC Learning Resources Center had been

opened, with two bids received on each issue. He introduced

Mr. Hal Smith of the firm of Burrows and Smith, who explain-

ed the bids.



Mr. Smith reported that on the UNLV Hotel and Business

building for $2 milion, a bid was received from John Nuveen

at an effective interest rate of 14.835%, and a bid from

Bank of America at an effective interest rate of 14.779%.



On the CCCC Learning Resources Center for $2.2 million, a

bid was received from John Nuveen for 14.8152% and from

Bank of America for 14.7806%.



Mr. Smith recommended that the low bids from Bank of America

be accepted and if the market improves consideration be

given to refunding the issues.



Mr. Mc Bride moved approval of the recommendation that the

bids of Bank of America for both issues be accepted. Motion

seconded by Mrs. Gallagher, carried without dissent.



Mrs. Gallagher moved adoption of the following resolutions.

Motion seconded by Ms. Del Papa, carried without dissent.

sity.

she would provide service was to end by the latter part

of the Summer. However, circumstances associated with this

trial have resulted in its anticipated continuation until

December, 1981. President Eaton recommended that the Board

of Regents authorize salaried leave for Ms. Reed for the

duration of the trial, noting that this is consistent with

bers be reviewed and any who miss meetings regularly be

dents. Mrs. Gallagher agreed, pointing out that in many

instances the value of an individual's membership is his

being available for counsel. It was agreed that Mr. Klasic

and Chancellor Bersi would review the matter.

lamation of "Higher Education Month" in conjunction with
