Bilbray, carried without dissent.



9. Installation of Sprinkler System, Physics Building, UNR



Mr. Pine reported that the State Planning Board opened bids

President Miller recommended that the Board concur in the

award by the State Planning Board of a contract to Savage &

Sons in the amount of $7,127.00 with funds to come from

the Higher Education Capital Construction Fund. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred in the recommendation.



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



10. Stead Dining Commons



President Miller recalled that in February, 1972, the Stead

Dining Commons was authorized to continue operations until

September 1, 1972 with a review of its financial condition

after July 1 for the purpose of determining whether or not

this operation should continue.



President Miller reported that the use of Dining Commons at

Stead has increased as a result of greater use by Continuing

Education, as well as increased enrollment in the Community

College. In the last few months the UNR athletic housing

has moved to Stead, the Washoe County Association for the

Mentally Retarded is moving to the Campus and Washoe County

is planning to open a branch library at Stead.



President Miller recommended that the Dining Commons be

authorized to continue during the balance of the 1972-73

fiscal year and that financing be met by utilizing income

from cash sales, catering and conferences. He reported that

no deficit is projected but requested that if a deficit

should occur, it be funded from the Contingency Reserve of

Stead Housing. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

Bilbray, carried without dissent.



11. Progress of University Capital Improvement Projects



Vice President Pine submitted a report concerning progress

of capital improvement projects under supervision of UNR.

A similar report was distributed from the State Planning

Board for projects under the supervision of that agency.

(Both reports on file in the Chancellor's office.)



12. Baccalaureate Program in Law Enforcement, UNR



President Miller recalled that in July, 1972 UNR was author-

ized to implement the baccalaureate program in Law Enforce-

ment, effective Fall, 1972, using a man whose salary would

be paid by the State of Michigan. It was understood that

continuation of the program beyond 1972-73 would be depend-

ent upon State appropriation. Dr. Miller reported that the

man from Michigan who was to assist in the Law Enforcement

Program has had a health reversal and his services will not

be available. UNR has therefore postponed the start of the

four-year program and will offer only the two-year program

for the present academic year.



13. Approval of Budget Transfers, CCD



President Donnelly submitted a list of budget transfers in

excess of $5,000 and requested approval of the Board (list

identified as Ref. 13 and filed in the permanent minutes).

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

Bilbray, carried without dissent.



14. Approval of Lease at ECC



President Donnelly recalled that the Board had previously

authorized the lease of a building at Elko, known as Elko

Grammar School No. 1, for use by ECC until permanent

quarters are available. He recommended extension of the

lease at an annual cost of $25,000 for 1972-73. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



15. Approval of Preliminary Plans, WNCC



President Donnelly reported that presentation of the prelim-

inary plans had been rescheduled for the November meeting.



16. Request for Extension of Service to WNCC Property



President Donnelly recommended that the Board of Regents

authorize a request to Carson City to:



A. Bring the sewer line up to the WNCC property in whatever

location is most feasible for Carson City in order that

the College may connect to the City sewer system. He

noted that two possibilities for this connection exist

with one sewer line available at Winnies Lane and El

Rancho Drive and a second one on Highway 395 about 3/4

mile east of the northerly portion of the property.



B. Extend Winnies Lane north or northwest from the point

where Foothill Road (Ormsby Blvd.) deadens to the

College property line. Winnies Lane now continues

from Foothill Road juncture southwest away from the

College property. The College wishes the road to go

west or northwest to the property line.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Bilbray, carried without dissent.



17. Request for Easement, WNCC



President Donnelly reported that an easement is required

along the east portion of the WNCC property in Carson City

to allow for the extension of utilities to the Campus and

for a roadway. The utilities (power, gas, water and tele-

phone services) would be placed in a common trench, requir-

ing a ten-foot easement. The roadway would require a 70'

easement.



Mr. Guild moved that appropriate easement be granted to Si-

erra Pacific Power Company, Bell of Nevada, City of Carson,

Southwest Gas, and, if requested, to Carson Cable TV, for

the underground extension of utilities to the Campus and

for a roadway. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent.



18. Proposal for Special Semesters, CCD



President Donnelly requested that the calendars for the

Community Colleges be modified to permit two new overlapping

semesters. For example, he suggested that a semester might

start on October 30, 1972 and end January 26, 1973 and a

Spring semester might start March 26, 1973 and end June 8,

1972, with the exact dates different in each College. Dr.

Donnelly stated that he believed these two special semesters

would be of advantage to Community College students and

enable the Colleges to make better use of their limited fa-

cilities. He pointed out the waiting time between August 28

and January 30, starting dates for the two regular semes-

ters, constitutes a genuine educational disadvantage for

many students in that many students are not ready to start

classes in August, but would be ready on October 30, and

should not have to wait until January 30.



President Donnelly reported that students and faculty at the

Colleges have indicated support for these new semesters. He

noted that the students in developmental English and Math

who have made good progress could enter 101 classes without

waiting for two or three months. Also, returning veterans,

persons changing jobs, and students who have had to drop

classes because of illness, family problems, or job changes

could more easily resume their education.



President Donnelly proposed that the special semesters be

essentially self supporting, noting that the fixed costs are

already there and the major cost would be faculty salaries.

He proposed three methods of staffing the classes:



(1) Part-time staff paid on the basis of regular part-time

schedule (approximately $450 a course).



(2) Full-time staff teaching as part of their regular

semester load.



(3) Full-time staff teaching a one-class overload at the

Summer Session salary schedule (approximately $650 a

course).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



19. Policy for Student Publications, WNCC



President Donnelly presented, with his endorsement, the fol-

lowing statement of policy for student publications as pro-

posed by the students and faculty of Western Nevada Commu-

nity College:



Recognizing the fact that Western Nevada Community

College is an institution of higher learning designed to

serve the communities of Western Nevada served by the

College, this newspaper will endeavor to inform, en-

lighten and entertain the needs of the student and the

non-student population. While the faculty is located

mostly in the cities of Reno and Carson, the concept of

the community will be used in its broadest sense. Thus,

all the communities within Western Nevada served by the

College will be within the spectrum of the College

newspaper. It is not the intent of this publication to

supply the latest local and national news, coverage of

College and community related subjects are the main

goal. Newsworthy events from other Colleges and

Universities will be presented. Frequently, special

feature articles will be offered to the reader.



A truly educational atmosphere is created when one can

see the various sides of a controversial issue or point.

In keeping with this obligation to inform, enlighten and

entertain we will uphold the traditions of a free and

unbiased press. Editorial opinion will be appropriately

labeled, and a "by-line" will be used when a story

carries a reporter's personal opinion.



This publication will be a non-profit self sufficient

paper. It will then be necessary to include

advertisement as a source of revenue for printing.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

carried without dissent.



20. Livestock Demonstration Ranch



President Miller recalled that in 1970 the Board authorized

the College of Agriculture to "seek, select and eventually

purchase a new livestock demonstration ranch". Proceeding

under this authority, he reported that Dean Bohmont has

located a ranch property which he believes will be satis-

factory and has requested authority to enter into negotia-

tions with Mr. George Isaacs for its acquisition. The

negotiations will involve a gift and land exchange of the

Dearden Ranch property in eastern Nevada for certain un-

developed lands at the Main Station Field Laboratory.

President Miller requested that Dean Bohmont comment further

on his proposal as distributed to the Board (proposal is

identified as Ref. 10 and filed with permanent minutes).



Dean Bohmont reviewed the reasons for initiating the search

for new property, i.e. the rising value of the Main Station

Farm, making it economically impractical to continue its use

for cattle ranching, and the need to replace the Knoll Creek

Station in Northern Nevada. He also reviewed the procedure

by the Citizens' Advisory Committee in its search for

suitable property and commented on the criteria used in

evaluating ranch properties which were investigated.



Mr. Eyer Boies, member of the committee, discussed the

Dearden Ranch, recommending that the Board give serious

consideration to its acquisition. He stated that he be-

lieved, and the committee concluded, that it was impossible

to find one single ranch to satisfy all of the criteria

against which they have been measuring properties; however,

he believed that if it is possible to acquire the Dearden

Ranch it will solve a good many of the problems which have

been identified.



In the discussion following, Mr. Boies spoke of the need for

an additional property in Northern Nevada, if the Dearden

Ranch is acquired, and asked that reassurance of this be a

condition in the Board's action.



President Miller agreed that the Experiment Station must

serve all the ranchers in the State; however, he pointed out

that the request before the Board was only for authorization

to continue the negotiations with Mr. Isaccs. He suggested

that it was premature to attach additional conditions to the

Board's action at this stage.



Mrs. Knudtsen asked if Mr. Boies would attach the same

conditions to negotiations for property in Northern Nevada;

that is, that additional property be acquired in Southern

Nevada. He stated that he would.



A number of questions were raised in the discussion follow-

ing; specifically, liability for taxes for that part of

the property located in Utah. It was agreed that additional

information would be presented at such time as a recommenda-

tion for acquisition is presented.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

Dean Bohmont be authorized to proceed with negotiations as

outlined, with final settlement of any resulting land ex-

change subject to approval by the Board and concurrence of

the Governor.



Mr. Steninger moved the Board of Regents, in recognition

of the three point program required to satisfy Agricultural

Experiment Station plans, i. e., (1) acquisition of ranch

property in Southern Nevada; (2) acquisition of land in

Northern Nevada; and (3) relief of the problem in Washoe

County (Main Station Farm), authorize Dean Bohmont and his

Committee to pursue negotiations along the lines indicated

by the Dean and the Advisory Committee and by President

Miller. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without

dissent.



21. Final Graduation List, UNLV



President Zorn submitted a list of 143 students approved for

graduation August 22, 1972. (Report is identified as Ref.

19 and filed with the permanent minutes.) Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval.



22. Approval of Budget Transfers, UNLV



President Zorn submitted a list of budget transfers in ex-

cess of $5,000 and requested approval of the Board (list

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

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



23. Further Action on Land Exchange, UNLV



President Zorn recalled that in September the Board author-

ized an exchange of land between UNLV Land Foundation and

the Roman Cathloic Diocese of Las Vegas. The material

submitted and upon which the Board took action contained an

error in arithmetic; however, the end result was correctly

stated. The 3.0 acres owned by the Diocese which is to be

acquired by the University was correctly reported at

$165,000. The .29 acres owned by the Land Foundation is

valued at $16,014 and the 1.5 acres by UNLV is valued at

$82,500 for a combined total of $98,514. This was incor-

rectly reported as $92,512. An additional reimbursement to

the Diocese of $3,000 results in the net due the Diocese of

$69,486. This figure was correctly reported. President

Zorn and Chancellor Humphrey requested that the Board re-

confirm its earlier approval of this land transaction with

this value of the land parcels correctly recorded.



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

without dissent.



24. Report of Disciplinary Cases, UNLV



In accordance with the Rules and Disciplinary Procedures for

Members of the University Community, a report was submitted

for the period June 15 to September 15, 1972 (report is

identified as Ref. 22 and filed with permanent minutes).



25. Request for Allocation to Faculty Moving Expense Fund, UNLV



President Zorn recalled that in May, 1972, allocations were

made from the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund to

bring each of the Division's Faculty Moving Expenses Ac-

counts up to $3000. He filed a report of disbursement of

these funds (identified as Ref. 23 and filed in permanent

minutes), noting that UNLV had over expended its account

by $1275.



President Zorn requested $1275 be allocated to UNLV from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund to clear this

deficit. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

carried without dissent.



26. Proposed Calendar for 1973



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the Board of Regents policy

specifies that the Board "shall meet on a schedule estab-

lished annually, usually on the second Saturday of each

month". In accordance with that policy, he submitted the

following schedule of meetings for 1973 as proposed by the

officers:



January 12-13 UNLV

February 9-10 UNR

March 9-10 UNLV

April 13-14 UNR

May 11-12 UNLV

June 8-9 UNR

July 13-14 Elko

No meeting in August

September 7-8 UNLV

October 12-13 UNR

November 9-10 UNLV

December 7-8 UNR



Chairman Jacobsen suggested that, as an alternative,

consideration be given to meeting on Friday, and if

required, Thursday afternoon.



Mr. Morris suggested that consideration be given reducing

the length of the agenda, perhaps by removing information

items from the agenda.



Action on the adoption of a calendar will be requested at

the November meeting.



The meeting adjourned for lunch and a meeting of the Investment

Advisory Committee and reconvened in regular session at 1:35 P.M.



27. Approval of Budget Transfers



Chancellor Humphrey requested approval of transfer #705

which would move $7000 from the UNS Administration and Press

Contingency Reserve to the Chancellor's budget. Of this

amount, $3313 will go to operating to replace a like amount

which was moved from operating to salaries via contingency,

per transfer #701, to provide for salary adjustments not

completed when the work program was established. The re-

maining $3678 will go to the operating account to meet ex-

penses not anticipated in moving into the new building in

January, 1973.



In addition, Chancellor Humphrey reported for information a

transfer of $4,620 form Contingency Reserve to salaries in

the Radiological Safety Board to pay salary of 0.50 FTE

Radiological Safety Officer for 1972-73, (the other 0.50 FTE

being paid by UNR, UNLV and DRI).



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



28. Appoval of Purchases in Excess of $5,000



A. Mr. Niels Anderson, Director, Computing Center,

commented on the Center's plan to change computers in

December. In addition, it is planned to change the

remote batch terminal located at UNLV to provide greater

computing capabilities to UNLV as well as higher com-

munication speeds. Since the communication speed is

dependent upon both the terminal and the communication

line available to it, the Center has budgeted a second

GSA Telpack line between Reno and Las Vegas that will

transmit data at 4,800 bits per second as compared to

the present 2,400 bits per second.



Bids for equipment to support this communication line

were solicited from seven bidders, as follows:



Lease/Purchase Lease/Purchase

Manufacturer One Year Two Year



Codex $7,355.00 $14,710.00

I. C. C. 5,241.00 10,482.00

American Data Sys. 4,433.00 8,866.00

Penril 4,550.00 9,100.00

IBM No lease purchase offered

Astrocom Not as specified

Sangamo 5,280.00 10,560.00



Mr. Anderson requested authorization to enter into a two

year lease/purchase agreement with American Data Systems

for a total cost of $8,866. Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



B. Chancellor Humphrey reported that bids were opened

October 11, 1972 for the purchase of data processing

cards and continuous stock forms for the Computing

Center:



Data Processing



Data Documents, Berkeley $5,085.80

IBM, Reno 5,513.88



Data Processing Continuous Stock Forms



Uarco Business Forms 9,957.62

Control Data Corp., Sac 10,050.62

Moore Business Forms, Reno 10,418.96

Standard Register, Reno 10,516.70

N. C. R., Reno 11,735.62

Data Documents 11,941.35



Chancellor Humphrey recommended the bid of Data

Documents in the amount of $5,085.80 be accepted for the

purchase of data processing cards, and the bid of Uarco

Business Forms in the amount of $9,957.62 be accepted

for the purchase of data processing continuous stock

forms.



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

Steninger, carried without dissent.



29. Special Recruitment of Chicano Personnel



As noted in the agenda, this matter was scheduled at the

request of the Regent Morris that consideration be given to

"...providing each Campus with sufficient moneys to send its

Administrative personnel to various southwestern University

Campuses to more actively and effectively recruit Chicanos."



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Officers agree with

the objective of recruiting minority faculty members and

also agree extensive recruiting requires funds for imple-

mentation. He noted that the Board had allocated $5,000

to each Division in May, 1971, from the Board of Regents

Special Projects Fund, to be used for interview expenses,

and in May, 1972 brought the accounts back to a balance of

$5,000 for each Division. (This required $2,800 for CCD,

$2,950 for UNLV, $2,309 for DRI and $2,983 for UNR.) An

additional $2,000 was provided to UNR in September, 1972 and

UNLV has spent an additional $6,104 from appropriated funds

for this purpose.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that no request for an additional

special allocation is advanced at this time; however, in the

Spring a request will be made. He stated the Presidents

will again emphasize the importance of minority recruiting

to their faculties and Administrators.



Mr. Morris commented on his request and his reasons for

believing the University has an obligation to more actively

recruit Chicanos for the faculty. He suggested this re-

cruitment would be more successful if it were actually

conducted at the schools in the southwest where these

people are more likely to be available.



Dr. Anderson suggested that if a special allocation of funds

is to be made for recruiting of minorities that it not be

limited to Chicanos.



Mr. Steninger suggested that it was not possible to discrim-

inate in favor of one minority group without simultaneously

discriminating against another minority group. He moved

the University adopt a policy that members of the teach-

ing faculty be hired exclusively on the basis of their

ability to teach. Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen.



Mr. Mc Dermott commented on the allocation of funds over the

past two years for recruiting and expressed objection to

special funds for exclusive recruiting within a particular

minority group.



Mr. Guild asked if Mr Morris wished to eliminate the word

"Chicano" from his request and replace it with another

phrase, such as "minority groups".



Mr. Morris suggested that it would be appropriate to ask the

Administration to comment on what is being done in the area

of recruiting minorities. He noted that Mr. Steninger's mo-

tion was still awaiting action, but stated that he believed

the motion should not be passed because he feared it would

be subject to misinterpretation. Dr. Anderson pointed out

he believed the University's goal was to obtain the best

possible faculty but adoption of the proposed motion might

be interpreted as being against equal opportunity for

minorities.



Mrs. Knudtsen agreed and withdrew her second. No substitute

second was offered.



Mr. Bilbray stated that it was his understanding that the

UNLV Administration was fully informed about the Chicano's

concerns in Las Vegas and that progress was being made.



Dr. Zorn agreed that the Administration is sensitive to the

needs of this group of students and progress is being made,

and he believed that the Chicano students recognized it. He

cited the employment of two professional staff members in

student counseling and two faculty members.



Mr. Bilbray asked if there had been problems during the last

several months which had come to Mr. Morris' attention. Mr.

Morris responded that he did not consider the matter crucial

but recalled that there had been a presentation to the Board

several months ago at which time several requests had been

made on behalf of the Chicano students. No further report

has been made to the Board.



(It was agreed that the minutes would be checked to deter-

mine what action has been requested.)



Mr. Hug commented on a recent conference of University at-

torneys at which this matter had been discussed. He noted

that each Campus is required to develop affirmative action

programs governing the employment of women and other minor-

ities. Mr. Hug stated that under these programs the Univer-

sity will be required to show what goals it has in this area

and prove that it has broadened its recruiting to reach into

areas where women or minority groups are likely to be found.



Further discussion was deferred until a record of the min-

utes could be obtained.



30. Provisional Graduate Standing



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in May, 1970, the Board

approved a recommendation by the UNR Graduate Council for

establishment of a "Provisional Standing" category for

Master's programs. In April, 1971, the Board approved a

similar policy as recommended by the UNLV Graduate Council.

(President policy statements for each Campus contained in

Ref. 30 and filed with permanent minutes.)



Chancellor Humphrey noted although the policy is similar

at both Campuses, it is administered differently. At UNLV,

students with less than a 2.5 undergraduate GPA are admitted

to provisional standing by the Graduate Dean. At UNR, the

Graduate Dean refers all requests for admission to provi-

sional standing to the Graduate Council and then takes

whatever action is proposed by the group.



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that this problem was explored

by the Board's Educational Policies Committee in July, 1972,

at which time the matter was referred to the Board and its

Presidents. He noted that problems with provisional stand-

ing have caused the University a great deal of trouble both

internally and from a public relations standpoint. He

recommended that the policy governing provisional graduate

standing be uniform for both Campuses and submitted the

following proposal revision for consideration and, if found

to be basically acceptable, final approval in December:



A non-resident student who has been denied admission to

Graduate Standing because of an overall undergraduate

grade point average of less than 2.50 (on a 4.00 scale)

may be admitted to Provisional Graduate Standing upon

the recommendation of the Department Chairman and the

Dean of the College and approval of the Graduate Dean.

A Nevada resident student who is a graduate of an ac-

credited institution of higher education who is denied

admission to Graduate standing because of an overall

undergraduate grade point average of less than 2.50

shall be admitted by the Department Chairman and the

Dean of the College.



Provisional Graduate Standing shall be changed to

Graduate Standing upon successful completion of one

semester of full-time graduate study with a minimum of

nine semester credits approved by the Department Chair-

man, the Dean of the College and the Graduate Dean.

Nine credits of full-time graduate study in a single

Summer may be regarded as equivalent to one semester.



A student may not remain in Provisional Graduate

Standing for more than one semester. It is the stu-

dent's responsibility at the end of the semester to

file for a change of status with the Graduate Dean.

Change of status must be effected prior to the close of

the late registration period. Should the change in

status not be effected, the result will be denial of

admission to Graduate Standing through the provisional

route. The GRE or ATGSB route shall, however, remain

open to the student.



In adopting this policy it is the intent of the Board of

Regents to provide any Nevada resident who is a graduate

of an accredited institution of higher education an

opportunity to prove his ability to succeed in graduate

school without necessity of leaving Nevada.



President Miller endorsed the proposed revision, noting it

provides opportunity for the 3 Administrators most closely

involved to have a voice in admission to graduate work; i.

e., the Department Chairman, Dean of the College and Dean of

Graduate School. He also endorsed the recommendation that

this not receive final action until December in order to

allow for further review and discussion on the Campus.



President Zorn commented UNLV is presently going through

a transition stage, moving toward implementation of a Grad-

uate College, and it was, therefore, considered desirable

that this matter be referred to the Academic Vice President

for discussion with the Graduate Dean and the Graduate

Faculty.



Vice President Baepler reported the organization at UNLV

is different from that at UNR, noting that the College Deans

have been removed from any consideration of graduate

programs, problems and personnel and are now strictly Deans

in the undergraduate baccalaureate level degree programs.



In response to a question from the Chancellor concerning the

status of this reorganization, Dr. Baepler stated that it is

an accomplished fact at this point. He noted that the

Graduate Dean is now in the process of working with the

faculty to determine what the Graduate Faculty is. The

Graduate Council will be dissolved and will be replaced by

the same kind of committee, academic standards committee,

etc., but all operating at the graduate level. It may be,

he suggested, that UNLV would want the graduate admissions

committee to look at proposed graduate students with the

Graduate Dean, rather than with the undergraduate Dean who

has been removed form the entire program.



Mr. Jacobsen suggested that the most important part of the

policy would appear to be the last paragraph of the Chan-

cellor's proposal. Chancellor Humphrey agreed, noting that

the proposal was developed under the assumption that UNR

and UNLV were similar enough to follow one policy, that is,

to guarantee that a Nevada resident will have an opportunity

to prove himself within one semester of provisional stand-

ing. The point to be examined by UNLV would be the way in

which the concept would by implemented, noting that the

proposed revision is basically patterned after the present

policy governing provisional graduate standing at UNLV,

which has not been changed by the Board of Regents.



Mr. Guild expressed concern the proposed policy provides

that a student may be admitted to provisional standing upon

the recommendations of specified persons but does not pro-

vide any standards by which such a recommendation may be

withheld.



Dr. Baepler stated that, in his opinion, this proposal would

establish an open door admissions policy to graduate school

for Nevada residents, therefore, the internal mechanism for

determining who will make the recommendation is unimportant.



Chancellor Humphrey suggested that perhaps it would be help-

ful to comment further on the reason for the recommendation

for a revision to the present policy. He stated that he

believed the Board's intent to be that residents of the

State who wished to do graduate work be given an opportunity

to prove themselves in one semester or not continue. It

seemed impractical to him, he stated, to permit their ad-

mission without the recommendation of the Department in

which they would be working since that would certainly re-

strict their chances of success. However, if a Department

is willing to take such a student on a provisional basis,

and the Dean of the College approved, the student should be

allowed to attempt the work. He noted the problem arises

where the Department is willing to take the student but has

not been allowed to by the Graduate Council. Legislators

are frequently contacted and some Legislators are becoming

annoyed about the manner in which this has been handled to

the point where they are ready to attempt to impose a change

Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that such action taken by

the Legislature would be very difficult but suggested that

it is the University's responsibility to resolve these

problems before the Legislature makes such an attempt.



Dr. Anderson spoke in favor of the recommendation, pointing

out there are many discretionary factors involved in the

granting of provisional standing, and he believed the people

who have been specified as the recommending individuals are

the ones most likely to be able to make the correct value

judgment.



Mr. Steninger moved that the general policy be adopted as

stated with the understanding that the mechanics of imple-

mentation may be different between the two Campuses. Motion

seconded by Mr. Anderson.



It was agreed the intent of Mr. Steninger's motion was a

general endorsement of the policy but with a requirement

the specific wording be submitted to the Board in December.



At Mr. Guild's request, it was agreed also that the

Presidents would be instructed to develop statements of

standards to which the Department and Dean involved would

adhere in considering applicants for admission to provi-

sional standing and that such statements will be submitted

to the Board in December.



Following further discussion and restatement of the motion

as offered by Mr. Steninger, Mr. Guild stated he would have

to vote no on the motion until both standards and mechanics

of implementation are submitted to the Board.



Motion carried with Mr. Guild opposing.



Discussion resumed on #29, Special Recruitment of Chicano

Personnel.



Mr. Jacobsen read the following excerpt from the March 10,

1972 minutes of the Board of Regents:



President Zorn introduced Mr. Louis Paez, President, La

Raza, and other members of his organization and of Nevada

Association of Latin Americans. Mr. Paez presented four

areas of concern to the two organizations, requesting the

University's assistance in accomplishing the following:



1. Recruitment and hiring of Chicano Instructors, Counse-

lors and Administrators.



2. Acquisition of necessary Chicano library and audio

visual materials.



3. Recruiting and providing incentive for Chicano high

school students.



4. Provision of scholarships and/or financial aid for

Chicano students.



In his presentation, Mr. Paez commented on efforts of the

members of his organization in these areas but pointed out

that they need and desire more help from the University.



In accordance with the Board's policy on foreign travel,

President Zorn stated that discussions have been held con-

cerning the needs of the Chicanos, as well as other ethnic

groups, and noted that some positive steps have been taken.

Other areas of concern have been identified and cooperative

efforts are continuing toward further resolution.



- - -



Mr. Morris suggested the discussion had been adequate to

insure that this matter had been called to the attention of

both Campuses. He noted assurance by the Chancellor that

a request for a special allocation would come forward in the

Spring. He said he appreciated the full discussion his

request had received.



It appeared to be the consensus of the Board that it would

be desirable to have at the November meeting a report show-

ing what has actually been done at the Campuses in the area

of recruitment of minorities and results of these efforts.



Mr. Bilbray moved that the matter be tabled until November.

Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



31. Revised Enrollment Projections for 1973-75 and Resulting

Revision of Operating Budget Request



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the actual Fall, 1972 enroll-

ments are sufficiently different from the estimated enroll-

ments for Fall, 1972, upon which the additional enrollment

projections for Fall, 1973 and Fall, 1974 were based, it

has been necessary to revise those projections. Since the

Instruction and Departmental Research areas of UNR, UNLV and

CCD budgets are based upon the number of FTE students, any

significant revision in enrollment projections necessitates

a revision in the budget request.



Mr. Don Jessup, Director of Institutional Studies and

Budget, presented information concerning the new projec-

tions and resulting budget revision, as follows:



Table No. 1 below compares the Fall, 1971 enrollment with

the Fall, 1972 actual enrollment and the projection included

in the biennial budget request.

Mr. Jessup noted that the FTE enrollment at UNLV was not

available at the time the above table was compiled, but the

number shown in Column 4 of table No. 1 for that institution

was estimated by multiplying the known number of headcount

regular students (HRS) by the two year historical ratio of

FTE to HRS students which is .862.



Table No. 2 below shows the revised projection for the bi-

ennium. The UNR projection was compiled by adding the new

information to the historical data and applying the enroll-

ment projection formula which has been in use since 1967

to the result. In addition, an estimated number of transfer

students from WNCC and ECC have been included in the upper

division beginning in 1973-74. This number is based on

the number of FTE students currently enrolled in the College

parallel programs at these two institutions and the existing

progression rates at UNR.

System 14,455 -145 - 1.0



Mr. Jessup explained that the Fall, 1972 enrollment in-

formation for UNLV which is available at this time is the

total number of headcount regular students (HRS) enrolled.

The actual number of FTE students by level, the progression

rates of Nevada high school graduates to UNLV, the composi-

tion of the Freshman class and the HRS enrollment by classi-

fication are not available. The projection shown in table

2 was, therefore, compiled by applying the percentage dif-

ference which exists between the FTE projection for Fall,

1972 which was completed in December, 1971 and the current

estimation of the FTE enrollment, as explained above, to the

FTE enrollment, to the projection which appears in the budg-

et request. An estimated number of transfer students from

CCCC was included in the upper division projection beginning

in 1973-74. As soon as the detail of the actual Fall, 1972

enrollment is available, the projection will again be revis-

ed if necessary.



Table No. 3 contains the recommended modification of the

budget request based on the revised enrollment projections

in table No. 2. Amounts were calculated by multiplying the

anticipated changes in FTE enrollment times the cost of in-

struction per FTE student included in the biennial budget

request. This cost is shown in columns 2 and 6 of the table

and does not include the cost of Operation and Maintenance

of Physical Plant and part of the cost of the Library. It

is assumed that these two costs will remain essentially the

same. Column 9 shows the revised biennial budget request

which results from these changes. The total request becomes

$79,914,870 which is $1,326,485 or 1.6% less than was

previously approved by the Board of Regents. The revised

request amounts to a 49.4% increase over the amount work

programmed for the 1971-73 biennium.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board authorize a

revision of the 1973-75 budget request as outlined above.



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Guild,

carried without dissent.



32. Retention of Leased Facilities, CCCC



President Donnelly presented a letter from Mr. Bert J.

Leavitt, addressed to Executive Vice President Stephen

Nicholson, CCCC, which urged that the facilities presently

leased by Clark County Community College be retained beyond

the time when construction of the Campus in North Las Vegas

has been accomplished.



Dr. Donnelly recommended that a study be conducted in rela-

tion to Mr. Leavitt's recommendation and that a report be

brought back to the Board at its next meeting.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



33. Capital Improvement Program Request, 1973-75



Chancellor Humphrey reported that information has been re-

ceived from the State Planning Board which indicates they

will tentatively recommend that the University's request

for a 4-year commitment of the Higher Education Capital

Construction funds be denied; that five University projects

totaling $11,190,000 be included in a priority list of State

projects. (Letter from State Planning Board dated September

29, 1972 filed with permanent minutes.)



Chancellor Humphrey noted that this matter had been reviewed

by the Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet and alternatives were

considered. The recommendation of the Advisory Cabinet is

that the Board reaffirm its Capital Improvement program

request, as approved in June, 1972, and the Administration

return to the State Planning Board to seek support of the

commitment of HECF funds for a four-year period.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



34. New Business



A. Mr. Morris moved that a letter be addressed to the

Legislative Counsel stating that it is the desire of

the University to be heard in the event legislation is

introduced which would increase the in-state preference

presently permitted by State law. Motion seconded by

Mr. Steninger, carried without dissent.



B. Mrs. Knudtson expressed concern that the 1972 Artemisia

was being used in the high school recruiting programs

and questioned the wisdom of such distribution in light

of the adverse manner in which this publication was

received by the community.



35. Dues Withholding for National Society of Professors



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the September meeting

the Officers had recommended that a voluntary dues with-

holding system be allowed for the National Society of pro-

fessors, thereby extending to this organization the same

privilege previously granted administratively to the State

of Nevada Employees Association and the American Associa-

tion of University professors. The Officers further recom-

mended all such authorizations expire June 30, 1973 and the

matter be subject to a review during the Spring of 1973.

Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the action of the Board at the

September meeting, noting that a motion to terminate all

dues withholding privileges immediately was tabled until

October "... to allow for opportunity for faculty to make

presentation in support of their request." Counsel was

requested to determine the legality of dues withholding and

the Administration was requested to estimate the annual cost

of providing this service.



Mr. Hug's response was distributed with the agenda (identi-

fied as Ref. 29 and filed with permanent minutes). Mr.

Hug's opinion, in brief, was that "the allowance of with-

holding for dues to these two organizations is discretion-

ary with the Board of Regents. It is a matter of policy

for the Board to determine whether to allow voluntary with-

holding of dues for organizations whose objectives are, in

part, to serve as bargaining agents for faculty or employ-

ees."



President Zorn reported that 65 classified employees at UNLV

have dues for SNEA withheld and estimates the annual cost of

not more than $200. Dues withholding for AAUP is not util-

ized at UNLV.



President Miller reported that 182 classified employees at

UNR have dues for SNEA withheld and 27 faculty have dues for

AAUP withheld. He estimated the cost at $370 annually.



The Presidents and Chancellor Humphrey reaffirmed their

recommendation that the Administration be granted authority

to withhold dues for members of the National Society of

Professors who so request and that dues withholding au-

thorizations for SNEA, AAUP and NSP expire June 30, 1973.



President Miller noted that representatives of the three

organizations were present and introduced the following

who spoke in support of the dues withholding:



Robert J. Gagnier, Executive Director, SNEA

Frank Thomas, President, Staff Employees Council, UNR

Pat Fladagher, Campus Clerical Council, UNR

Hugh Mozingo & William Raggio, speaking on behalf of NSP

Anne Howard, President, AAUP, UNR Chapter



Mr. Bilbray moved approval of the Officers' recommendation.

Motion seconded by Mr. Guild.



Mr. Morris moved to amend to continue withholding for those

organizations presently approved, but action on request from

NSP be postponed until after the 1973 Legislature has ad-

journed. Motion to amend seconded by Mr. Steninger. Motion

to amend failed.



Mr. Morris moved to table. Motion to table seconded by Mr.

Steninger. Motion to table failed.



It was called to the Chair's attention that a motion to

terminate all dues withholding privileges immediately was

tabled at the September meeting and it was appropriate to

now remove it from the table. The Chair declared the earli-

er motion out of order and removed the September motion from

the table. That motion, made by Mr. Steninger and seconded

by Mr. Morris to terminate all dues check-off privileges

immediately, failed by five negative and three affirmative

votes.



Mr. Bilbray moved that Officers' recommendation be approved.

Motion seconded by Mr. Guild.



Mr. Morris moved to amend to add stipulation that recommen-

dation does not conflict with opinion from Counsel. Motion

to amend seconded by Mr. Steninger. Motion to amend failed.



Main motion carried with six affirmative and two negative

votes.



Meeting adjourned at 4:45 P.M.
