Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried without

dissent that the above budget transfers be approved.



10. Increase in Student Accident Insurance Rate, Reno Campus



President Armstrong presented a recommendation from Dean

Basta and Chancellor Miller that the student accident insur-

ance rate be increased from $3.50 per semester to $4.15 per

semester effective with the Spring semester of 1968. It was

pointed out that this request for an increase came original-

ly from Mr. Leon Stanley, Agent for Mutual of Omaha because:



(a) The premium of $3.50 per semester has been in effect

since 1960;



(b) The loss ratio has consistently been at 92-96% for

the past three years;



(c) Nevada Southern has withdrawn from the plan, thereby

increasing the risk level;



(d) Higher medical and hospital costs.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



11. Discussion with Consultants on Possible University Adminis-

trative Reorganization



President Armstrong introduced Mrs. Sam Johnson, Chairman of

the Academic Affairs Committee of the Oregon Board of Higher

Education, and Dr. Arthur Browne, Associate Director of the

Illinois State Board of Higher Education, who were in Reno

at the invitation of the Board as consultants on the study

of the Central Administration of the University of Nevada.



Mrs. Johnson and Dr. Browne spoke at some length on the

experiences of their respective systems and responded to

questions from the Board of Regents. Both Mrs. Johnson and

Dr. Browne stressed the necessity, in their opinions, for

maintaining a statewide system with controls and guidelines.



Following the exchange of ideas between the Board and the

Consultants, Dr. White moved that the study be continued and

that two additional faculty representatives from each Campus

be asked to participate in the next meeting of the Ad Hoc

Committee. Mrs. Magee seconded the motion, adding that

these faculty members should represent faculty viewpoint

rather than individual viewpoint. Motion carried unani-

mously.



Further discussion resulted in consensus by the Board that

the Ad Hoc Committee should be requested to make recommen-

dations to the Board concerning administrative organization

and that alternative recommendations would also be helpful.



12. Appointment of an Acting President



President Armstrong asked for discussion on whether or not

the Regents wished to appoint an interim Administrative

Officer effective with President Armstrong's resignation on

October 31.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the Regents attempt to arrive at a

selection of an Acting President to be employed as of

November 1, 1967 to provide leadership and guidance to the

University of Nevada System until such time as other

arrangements might be indicated.



13. Presentation of College of Education Program and Facilities

Planning Study



Dean Cain presented slides and material prepared for the

purpose of familiarizing the Regents with the purpose and

extent of a Planning Study which has just been completed

concerning future growth and development and facility needs

of the College of Education. The study presented in 2 vol-

umes was prepared by David-Mac Connell-Ralston, Inc. in

cooperation with College of Education faculty, other Uni-

versity of Nevada Departments, including the Library, Audio-

Visual, etc., and State and local public school personnel.

The first volume includes a review of trends in teacher

preparation, a review of and analysis of the instructional

programs currently being implemented, recommendation for

its modification and improvement, and projections of en-

rollment, thereby producing a rationale for meeting Nevada's

needs for properly prepared teachers. Volume 2 contains a

description, in the form of educational specifications of

the kind of facility required to immediately implement the

recommended program.



Following Dean Cain's presentation, Chancellor Moyer spoke

of the serious problem existing now in the College of Edu-

cation and requested acceptance of the Study Report by the

Regents. President Armstrong endorsed Chancellor Miller's

request and recommended that the Board approve the report

in principle, and agree that the needs for a facility for

the College of Education will be placed high on the list

of priorities, and that the Board further instruct the

staff to continue to investigate various methods of funding

such a facility.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

unanimously that President Armstrong's recommendation be

approved and that the matter be referred to a joint meeting

of the Educational Policies Committee and the Plant and

Property Committee as soon as staff work concerning imple-

mentation of the study recommendations, cost projections,

timetables, site locations and possible sources of funding,

has advances to the point where further discussion with the

Regents is desirable.



14. The Board adjourned for lunch followed by a Personnel

Session to hear the report of the National Advisory Board

to Desert Research Institute, reconvening into regular

session at approximately 2:00 P.M.



15. Security Disclaimer for Regent Paul Mc Dermott



Upon motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, the

following resolution was adopted:



RESOLUTION



I, Charles Armstrong, President of the University of Nevada,

a non-profit organization, do hereby certify that the fol-

lowing is a true and correct copy of a resolution adopted

at a meeting of the Board of Regents of said corporation at

a meeting held on October 14, 1967, at which meeting a

quorum was present and acting throughout and said resolu-

tion has not been modified, amended or rescinded:



RESOLVED, that the following Regent who is a citizen of the

United States will not require, nor will have, and can be

effectively denied, access to classified information in the

possession of the organization and does not occupy a posi-

tion that would enable him to affect adversely the organiza-

tion's policies or practices in the performance of contracts

for the Government:



PAUL MC DERMOTT



IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and the seal

of said corporation, the 14th day of October 1967.



Charles J. Armstrong

President

University of Nevada



16. Requirements for Special Legislation



President Armstrong presented copies of correspondence be-

ween Vice President Humphrey and Mr. William Hancock which

outlines the need for inclusion on the Special Legislative

Session agenda for legislation relating to the Chemistry

building and Performing Arts project. President Armstrong

recommended approval of a University request to the Governor

to include consideration of the necessary legislation on his

call for the Special Session.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that such a request of the Governor be

forwarded by the University Administration.



17. Agreement between University of Nevada and State Planning

Board Concerning NSU Chemistry Building



Vice President Humphrey submitted a proposed agreement

between the State Planning Board and the Board of Regents

which, when executed, would enable the Planning Board to

proceed with the NSU Chemistry building.



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

dissent that the proposed agreement be approved and the

President authorized to sign on behalf of the University.



18. Further Discussion on Study of Administrative Reorganization



It was suggested that in line with earlier action to invite

the faculty members of the Ad Hoc Committee on Administra-

tive Reorganization to attend the next meeting of the Board,

it might also be appropriate to invite the Presidents of the

Campus student bodies.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried unani-

mously that such an invitation be issued.



There was further discussion concerning Regents-Students

communication with Dr. Anderson and Mr. Seeliger both read-

ing for the Board letters written to or received from cer-

tain student groups. The letters contained an expression of

concern over what the students felt was a lack of communi-

cation concerning the Regents action on ROTC. As an exten-

sion of this discussion, Dr. Anderson read a telegram

received from a representative of the CSNS requesting delay

of the decision by the Regents concerning ROTC at NSU until

the NSU faculty has completed its studies. Chancellor Moyer

expanded on this by discussing a communication from an NSU

faculty committee, appointed to study the possibility of

ROTC at NSU, setting forth its progress to date. It was the

consensus after discussion with Chancellor Moyer that a

further report should be made in about two months.



19. Traffic Control on North Virginia Street, Reno



Mr. Pine's written progress report on this matter reads as

follows:



Mr. Pine had continued attending meetings with the Urban

Transportation Committee and Washoe County Officials. Reno

and Sparks has submitted changes in street alignments and

traffic directions which are being considered; however, no

change in street layout near the University has been made

and no decision has been made concerning North Virginia.

Mr. Pine requested that the extension of Oddie Boulevard to

North Virginia be scheduled earlier than now planned in

order to alleviate cross-campus traffic problems. A more

complete report can be made in November.

Machabee.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried by

roll call vote that the bid of Morrill & Machabee be accept-

ed and a contract awarded.



22. Agreement for Services with Burrows, Smith and Company



Mr. Humphrey reviewed for the Board two previous occasions

when Burrows, Smith & Co. of Salt Lake City had served as

financial consultants to the University on public revenue

bond issues. Mr. Humphrey recommended that the University

contract with Burrows, Smith & Co. on an annual basis for

their services with payment depending upon each individual

bond issue handled. He proposed that the contract period

be for one year with provision for annual renewal and

indicated that during any year that the University did not

sell a bond issue there would be no payment to Burrows,

Smith and Co., but they would still be available in prepar-

ing new issues. He further proposed that the fee for the

next project, the NSU Chemistry building, be set at one

percent of the bonds issued.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried by

roll call vote that an annual contract with Burrows, Smith &

Co., along the lines proposed by Mr. Humphrey, be approved

and Administration be authorized to sign such a contract.

School, Clark County



Chancellor Moyer requested approval in principle of the

location of the proposed $3 million Clark County-Research-

Experimental School on 25 acres in the southwest corner of

the NSU section of land. Chancellor Moyer pointed out that

the decision as to the exact 25 acres has not yet been made

but the NSU Land Foundation now owns or has options on all

of the land in the vicinity of the site and determination

could be made in the near future.



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

without dissent that the approval in principle be given for

the location of this proposed school on 25 acres in the

southwest corner of the NSU section of land with recommenda-

tion of the exact location made to the Board as soon as the

details are formed.



24. NSU Faculty Senate Action on Patent Policy



President Armstrong reviewed for the Board their action at

their meeting on July 8 in adopting a patent policy for the

Reno Campus, at which time they requested the NSU faculty to

come forward with a recommendation concerning the policy at

an early date. Chancellor Moyer indicated that the faculty

at NSU has now approved this policy and it is now ready for

consideration by the Board for adoption for NSU.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the Patent Policy as adopted for the Reno

Campus on July 8 now be approved as a policy for NSU.



25. Sabbatical Leave Policy Revisions



President Armstrong reviewed for the Board his request last

year that the two Chancellors undertake a review of existing

University policy governing sabbatical leaves. As a result,

a recommendation was made that a change be made in the pres-

ent system of priorities for sabbatical leave policy; spe-

cifically that order of priority of type of proposed proj-

ects for sabbatical leave be changed so that the present #4

(projects which primarily involve research in residence at

the University of Nevada) be designated #5 and the present

#5 projects which center in a study of training program in

business, industry or government) be designated #4. Pres-

ident Armstrong indicated that this recommendation has now

been approved by both faculties and recommended that it now

be approved by the Board.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the order of priority of type of pro-

posed projects for sabbatical leave be changed as recom-

mended.



26. Report of Development Committee Meeting of October 13, 1967



Mr. Ronzone verbally reported on the meeting of the Develop-

ment Committee which had been held on October 13, 1967 and

presented the following action of the Committee:



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried without

dissent that the Committee recommend that the Board of

Regents reaffirm its position in regard to the establishment

for the Reno Campus.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously that the action of the Committee become the action

of the Board.



27. Chairman Anderson reminded the Board of scheduled seminar

on educational television and data retrieval and urged them

all to make every effort to attend. The seminar will be

held on the Reno Campus on November 10.



28. Resolution of Appreciation for Mr. Arthur M. Smith, Jr.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously that the following resolution be adopted:



WHEREAS, Arthur M. Smith, Jr. had served during the past six

months, from April 8, 1967 following appointment by the

Governor of the State of Nevada to September 11, 1967 as a

member of the Board of Regents of the University; and



WHEREAS, during this time he has freely devoted time and

attention to this important responsibility; and



WHEREAS, he has given conscientiously of this advice and

counsel on a number of committees of the Board of Regents;

and



WHEREAS, he has now found it necessary to resign as a member

of this Board,



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Regents of

the University hereby express to Mr. Arthur M. Smith, Jr.

its deep regret at the loss of his services and its sincere

appreciation for the admirable way in which he has discharg-

ed his responsibility as a Regent of the University of

Nevada.



Given at Reno, Nevada this fourteenth day of October, 1967.



29. Resolution of Appreciation for Mr. Grant Davis



Through researching the minutes of the Board, it has become

apparent that although the Regents discussed the adoption of

a resolution of appreciation for Mr. Grant Davis at the end

of his term of office in 1966, this action was never taken.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously that such a resolution be drafted and presented

to the Board at its next meeting for adoption.



30. Status Report on Study of Special Students



President Armstrong reviewed the special student matter

which originated back in 1965 when the University Council

recommended that "Special students who have previously

attended the University and who are minus grade points

shall be placed on probation with future registration

subject to new scholastic regulations instituted during

the Fall semester, 1963. This rule is to be effective

as of September 1, 1965."



The above action was submitted to the faculty for a vote and

upon receiving a majority of affirmative votes was submitted

to the Board with a recommendation for approval. However,

because there was also a very high negative vote cast on

this ballot, this matter was referred by the Board to its

Educational Policies Committee which after discussing the

matter at 2 separate meetings, requested the Chancellors to

refer this matter back to their faculties for further study.



President Armstrong indicated that this matter is now

scheduled to be discussed by the Coordinating Council at its

meeting in October and a recommendation will come forward to

the Board at a later meeting.



31. Miscellaneous



President Armstrong read a letter from Dr. Effie Mona Mack

expressing appreciation for the flowers sent her by the

President and members of the Board of Regents during her

recent hospital confinement.



32. Expression of Appreciation for President Armstrong



Dr. Lombardi urged that an expression of appreciation be

prepared for President Armstrong for his service during the

past nine years to the University of Nevada and to the State

and its students.



33. Nevada Community College



Mr. Seeliger read a letter from Mr. Burnell Larson concern-

ing the progress of the Nevada Community College. Mr.

Seeliger indicated that a Committee has been appointed by

the Governor and a site visit to Elko is planned for early

in November. Mr. Hug suggested that the Board of Regents

hear a report from Mr. Seeliger, who is a member of the

Committee, at its next meeting and, in the meantime, re-

affirm its position of willingness to assist in the devel-

opment of Nevada Community College through the University's

General University Extension.



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

dissent that the November meeting provide time for a discus-

sion of our relations with Nevada Community College, that

the discussion include a report from the Dean of General

University Extension and in the meantime obtain an opinion

from the Attorney General regarding the University's

responsibility for a Community College Program.



34. The meeting adjourned at 3:00 P.M. with a reminder that the

next regular meeting of the Board is scheduled for November

11, 1967 in Reno.
