tion which assists rural areas to obtain and operate
educational telecommunications facilities.
(7) Approved authorization to transfer funds from the
Church Fine Arts construction account to the Capital
In accordance with Section 415, Paragraph A of the
bond indenture for the University of Nevada System,
Universities' Student Fees Improvement and Refunding
Revenue Bonds, Series 1984, permission is requested
to transfer funds not necessary for the project. The
Public Works Board certified that funds beyond the
approved budget will not be required for the project.
Currently, there is $798,213 in the construction fund
not required for the project.
This request is being made to provide funds for the co-
generating plan approved earlier by the Board of Re-
gents. A federal loan of $3,110,000 has been secured
to construct the co-generating plant, but up to
$500,000 will be required pending receipt of the fed-
eral monies. In addition, other Capital Improvement
monies will be needed in the near future for projects
such as the purchase of shuttle buses.

5. Report on Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive
Deputy Chancellor Dawson reported that the goals of EPSCoR
are to improve the quality of science, to increase the abil-
ity of scientists and engineers to compete successfully for
federal funds, and to make improvements in the institutional
and State research environment beyond the National Science
Foundation (NSF) support period. EPSCoR was mandated by
Congress to improve geographic distribution of federal
research funds. The states eligible are Nevada, Idaho,
North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Kentucky,
Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Vermont and Puerto Rico.
There are up to $3 million from NSF during 5 years plus
the successful states will be required to match a minimum
of $3 million in new funds. 8 states will be selected for
5-year NSF grants. Selection will be made on the quality
of the scientific proposal, the perceived long-term impact
that the proposal (grant) will have on science and engineer-
ing throughout the State, and the commitment of the State
to develop a science and engineering base.
The Nevada EPSCoR Committee has narrowed the proposals to
5. The proposal is due in March, 1986 to NSF with announce-
ment of the award to be made November, 1986 and a starting
date of July 1, 1987.
Deputy Chancellor Dawson informed the Board that the match-
ing funds will be placed on the critical needs budget.
Chairman Klaich questioned what would happen if the award
was granted to Nevada but the Legislature could not match
the funds. Mr. Dawson answered that the funds would be
returned to NSF or the UNS would be asked to match the
funds from their instructional sources.
6. Report on Systemwide Enrollments, Summer and Fall 1985
Vice Chancellor Fox submitted the Summer and Fall 1985 En-
rollment Report, as contained in Ref. I, filed in the Re-
gents Office. Mrs. Karen Steinberg presented a System
overview and summary of the enrollment figures.
The number of students enrolled at the University of Nevada
System institutions reached an all-time high this Fall.
The System is currently serving a total of 45,731 students.
This represents a 4.9% increase in students over enrollment
during Fall 1984. Student FTE enrollment has also increased
to 21,856 students this Fall, up 2.5% over Fall 1984.
The report also analyzed Fall enrollment data trends from
Fall 1981 to Fall 1985. Over this period, headcount enroll-
ment has increased 9.9% and FTE enrollment has increased
6.4%. This year's increases follow a 2-year period of
leveling off in the System and may be predictive of con-
tinuing increasing enrollment in the State over the next
In analyzing the Fall enrollment data, the report focused
on 5 issues: 1) population growth, 2) high school gradu-
ates, 3) the nontraditional student, 4) student migration,
and 5) retention and attrition rates. The report recom-
mended that the University of Nevada System:
a) Continue to monitor and better define trends concerning
the population as a whole, high school graduates, and
b) Gather and disseminate more data on migration of Nevada
c) Study the impact of attrition on enrollments at the
d) Examine the impact of increasing headcount and declining
FTE on institutional resources, especially at the Com-
Mrs. Gallagher commended Dr. Fox and Mrs. Steinberg on the
execellent report. Chairman Klaich requested a letter and
the report be sent to each Legislator. Mrs. Steinberg
thanked the Institutional Research staffs on each Campus
for their assistance with the report.
President Eardley felt that headcounts are not true figures
in that there is a large turnover at the Community College
level, with one reason being that Nevada is a transient
State. He suggested a separate category be developed to
address the true headcount issue. Dr. Fox and the Council
of Presidents were directed to address this issue.
Regent Karamanos entered the meeting at this time.
Mrs. Kenney moved approval of the Summer and Fall 1985 En-
rollment Report. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion carried.
Chairman Klaich declared a recess in order for the System Govern-
ance to finalize their report to the full Board.
7. Report and Recommendations of the System Governance
A report and recommendations of the System Governance Com-
mittee meeting held December 4-5, 1985 were made by Regent
The Committee submitted a report, as contained in Ref. J,
filed with the permanent minutes.
General Counsel Klasic stated the report does not contain
one of the recommendations made by the System Governance
Committee whereby the Chancellor is to consult with the
Presidents before appointing System committees. This was
omitted inasmuch as the UNS Code already has such a pro-
General Counsel Klasic stated that Bylaw changes require a
first reading before the action is to be taken, and UNS Code
changes must be circulated for comment 30 days before final
action. Mr. Foley recommended the report be accepted and
that it also be considered as the first reading for the
Bylaw changes, and that Mr. Klasic be authorized to circu-
late the UNS changes.
Chairman Klaich extended his gratitude to Mr. Foley and the
Committee in meeting the time schedule.
Mr. Karamanos stated he felt there was a definite need for
a strong Chancellor with line authority over the Presidents.
Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the System Governance Re-
port and accepted the Bylaw and Code changes as the first
reading. Motion carried. Mr. Karamanos voted no.
8. Report and Recommendations of the Audit Committee
A report and recommendations of the Audit Committee meeting
held December 5, 1985 were made by Regent Whitley, Chairman.
(1) Internal Audit Director Sandi Cardinal presented the
audit of the Clark County Community College Registra-
tion and Cashiering. The audit report is filed in the
Mrs. Cardinal recommended the following:
A. The residency verification procedures be followed
by the College and that the paperwork for changing
residency be consistently completed by students.
B. Billings be sent to the students in the future.
C. All extensions of the refund policy be approved by
the Board prior to the extension. All refund forms
should be properly completed and authorized. All
exceptions to the refund policy should be better
D. The Admissions and Records Office work with the UNS
Computing Center to develop a report that would
show all changes to transcripts to ensure that un-
authorized changes are not being made.
E. The petty cash funds be balanced on a regular ba-
sis; checks not be written until they are needed
for registration; deposits for the Henderson Campus
be made on a daily basis; and separate cash drawers
being maintained for each cashier and be balanced
F. The College be more careful in reporting FTE. Also
the Business Officers review the FTE procedures to
ensure consistency between institutions.
G. A procedures manual be developed to serve as an im-
portant reference tool for the registration and
Mrs. Cardinal stated that the recommendations were be-
ing acted upon at the Campus. President Meacham in-
formed the Committee that the procedures manual has
Mrs. Whitley moved approval of the report and recommenda-
tions of the Audit Committee. Ms. Del Papa seconded.
9. Report and Recommendations of the Budget and Finance
A report and recommendations of the Budget and Finance Com-
mittee meeting, held December 5, 1985, were made by Regent
(1) Approved a Handbook change, Title 4, Chapter 17, Sec-
tion 10, Student Fees, UNLV and UNR. Presidents
Crowley and Maxson recommended raising the graduation
application fee from $10 to $15 to cover costs incurred
(2) Approved UNR Summer Session salaries for 1986 be in-
creased by 5% to make them comparable with those paid
for the academic year. No increase in the per credit
fee is required to fund the proposed salary increase.
(3) Approved the following 1985-87 Equipment Staffing for
the Purchasing Department at UNR:
85-87 Equipment Staffing
Opening Cash Balance and Revenue
Opening Cash Balance $ 0.00
Transfer from Other Funds
Assessment of 1% of Total 74,123.00
Total Revenue $74,123.00

This is an increase of $50 per course.
(5) Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks presented an update of the
Legislative Committee Studying Funding for Higher Edu-
cation. The initial meeting was held on November 5,
1985. Chairman Klaich submitted a position paper which
was well received by the Legislative Committee. Mrs.
Gallagher felt the initial meeting was positive and
that there will be support for present goals. The
Legislative Committee requested a 10-year plan from
UNS which the Council of Presidents has under consider-
ation which will be presented to the full Board at the
January, 1986 meeting. The Legislative Committee will
meet next on February 10, 1986.
(6) Vice Chancellor Ron Sparks reported on the status of
the 1987-89 budget process and stated that the Legis-
lative Committee Studying Funding for Higher Education
position paper guidelines are being developed along
with the budget. He suggested the definition of the
base budget be expanded to include items, such as stu-
dent/faculty ratios, to be returned to 1979 ratios;
maintenance funding for one-shot equipment approved
by the 1985 Legislature; MIS maintenance; inflationary
increases (i. e., wages, operating, equipment).
Mr. Sparks indicated several needs for the Enhancement/
Critical Needs Budget, which include salaries, merit
increase to include all professional positions, formula
to include support personnel, student faculty ratio for
developmental programs at Community Colleges to be en-
hanced, seek changes in full-time and part-time support
ratios, increase numbers and funds for graduate assist-
ants, telecommunications, preventive maintenance for
all facilities, and a minor number of new programs.
These suggestions are all under review and will be
finalized for reporting at the January, 1986 meeting.
The Capital Improvement Requests must be submitted to
the State Public Works Board on February 15.
Ms. Del Papa inquired about the Mackay School of Mines
grant. President Crowley stated it was a complicated issue
with several projects involved. Congress has appropriated
$10 million for the construction of Phase II of the Mines
building, establishment of a policy center for strategic
minerals research and development of a generic minerals
research institute. President Crowley is hopeful that this
appropriation will pass in Congress fairly soon. This $10
million project relates to other UNR projects.
Mrs. Sheerin moved approval of the report and recommenda-
tions of the Budget and Finance Committee. Mrs. Whitley
seconded. Motion carried.
10. Report and Recommendations of the Academic Affairs Committee
A report and recommendations of the Academic Affairs Commit-
tee meeting, held December 5, 1985, were made by Regent Jo
Ann Sheerin, Chairman.
Chairman Sheerin requested of the Secretary that a summary
of Phase I programs be submitted when approving Phase II
(1) Approved the Phase II Proposal for a Baccalaureate in
Computer Science at UNR, as contained in Ref. AA-1,
filed in the Regents Office.
This program, sponsored jointly by two Departments,
would offer the following degrees: A B. S. in Computer
Science through the Department of Electrical Engineer-
ing in the College of Engineering, and a B. S. with a
major in Computer Science to be offered through the
Department of Mathematics, College of Arts & Science.
Standards developed by two professional organizations
have been used as a guideline for the development of
the curriculum. Both tracks will require 130 credits,
25 of which would be in core courses in computer sci-
ence. Students would enroll as pre-computor science
majors with full admission in the Junior year based
upon performance and resources.
Accreditation would be sought, with a full review re-
quested in the 5th year of the program.
Funding needs are established at $155,500 for the 1st
year, increasing to $271,400 by the 4th year. A por-
tion of this budget would be earmarked for maintenance
and support of computer equipment, as well as replace-
ment of obsolete equipment. Existing space would be
adequate for the present.
A computer science option and field of concentration
have been offered by the two Colleges for a number of
years. This proposal would consolidate and strengthen
existing programs and provide students with an oppor-
tunity to receive a formalized degree. There continues
to be a high demand for gradutes of 4-year computer
science programs. Two consultants were brought in to
evaluate the proposed program and, overall, this as-
sessment was positive.
(2) Approved the Phase I Proposal for an Associate of
Science degree at Northern Nevada Community College,
as contained in Ref. AA-2, filed in the Regents
Currently, the primary two-year transfer degree offer-
ed by System Community Colleges is the Associate of
Arts degree which requires a minimum of 21 credits in
the social sciences and humanities. However, students
who major in science or engineering at either of the
Universities require only 9 to 18 credits in these
courses for graduation. Currently, many Community
College students who transfer to University programs
in science areas do so without acquiring an Associate
degree. The Associate of Science degree would encour-
age these students to pursue the completion of a Com-
munity College program in science or mathematics, and
facilitate entry into programs at the Universities.
The curriculum is designed to facilitate transfer into
four-year science or engineering mathematics programs
at UNLV and UNR. 60 to 64 credits would be required
Enrollment for students is estimated at 20 FTE students
during the 1st year of the program, increasing to 40 by
the 4th year. Funds would be required primarily for
equipment and facilities and should total $82,000. It
may be necessary to request a supplemental appropria-
tion from the Legislature, because capital improvement
funds may not be sufficient.
A number of other states offer the Associate of Science
degree to provide the background for bachelor's pro-
grams in engineering, agriculture or science. This
degree would require fewer general education courses
than the A. A. degree, but it would fulfill the System
core requirements. It should provide a strong founda-
tion for the last two years of bachelor of science
programs in science, engineering or mathematics.
The date of implementation is planned for Fall, 1986.
Mrs. Sheerin inquired about how this degree program
would articulate with other Community Colleges. Pres-
ident Berg stated the degree is originating from trans-
ferrable credits and can be worked out with the other
institutions upon transfer.
Vice Chancellor Fox stated, if carefully planned, the
student can transfer to the Universities with the 1st
two years accomplished. He stated individual College
requirements are different, but felt the requirements
could be met. The core must be met at all institu-
tions. He noted that the Associate of Science would
be a new transfer degree, and that there will have to
be Bylaw changes to accommodate the Associate of Sci-
(3) Approved the Phase I Proposal for an A. A. S. degree
in Manufacturing Engineering Technology at WNCC, as
contained in Ref. AA-3, filed in the Regents Office.
This is a highly specialized program designed as a
terminal occupational degree which will provide train-
ing necessary for employment in the robotic manufactur-
ing field. Individuals who could benefit from the
program include those currently employed in the field,
as well as engineers, managers and technicians who wish
to upgrade their training. The degree also would pro-
vide a background for College instructors and vocation-
al education teachers. There are no other programs of
this type offered within the UNS.
Enrollment in the program is estimated at 15 FTE during
the 1st year, increasing to 30 FTE by the 4th year.
The new facility at Stewart would house the program,
and, at present, sufficient equipment is available.
Funding needs are anticipated to be $16,000 for the
1st year of the program. This would be used to hire
adjunct faculty and offer courses taught by full-time
faculty. The College instructional budget would be
the primary source of funds.
Existing faculty, as well as personnel from local in-
dustries, would be used as instructors for the program.
President Calabro stated there is an interest from in-
dustries in providing scholarships and also employers
paying for student fees. There is approximately 16% of
total payroll in manufacturing jobs. He mentioned
Nevada Manufacturing Association's interest in this
President Calabro informed the Committee that they will
be visiting the Stewart facility during WNCC's program
review in March.
(4) Information Only: President Maxson reported on the
Executive MBA program at UNLV.
The College of Business and Economics at UNLV will open
an Executive version of the Masters in Business Admin-
istration early in 1986. Established at the University
of Chicago in 1943, the EMBA is now offered at more
than 200 urban Universities.
The proposed Executive version of the MBA is similar in
content and quality to the existing MBA program, but
would be presented in a lockstep format on alternative
Fridays and Saturdays rather than weekday evenings.
EMBA programs are designed for and have attracted rel-
atively high-level executives.
Faculty for such programs are selected based upon out-
standing teaching ability and significant executive
experience. The EMBA at UNLV would establish a much
needed connection between the College of Business and
Economics and key officials of southern Nevada busi-
nesses and key governmental agencies.
President Maxson stated there was a great need for this
program and employers are willing to pay the fees in-
volved. There may be other fees, but will make it as
self-efficient as possible.
Mrs. Sheerin referred to the articulation issue and
felt there should be a way to transfer Community Col-
lege credits to the Universities in Junior standing.
Mrs. Sparks felt this issue might be a counseling
President Calabro informed the Board that he was work-
ing with Vice Chancellor Fox on articulation issues
reviewing such processes in other systems, and a report
should be expected in the near future.
Mrs. Gallagher moved approval of the Academic Affairs Com-
mittee report and recommendations. Mrs. Kenney seconded.
11. Approved Handbook Addition, Title 4, Chapter 17, Section
8.4.c, Refund Policy, CCCC
Approved the Handbook addition to Title 4, Chapter 17, Sec-
tion 8.4.c, Refund Policy at CCCC with the following:

remainder of the semester.
Ms. Del Papa moved approval of the Handbook addition regard-
ing Refund Policy at CCCC. Mrs. Kenney seconded. Motion
It was requested that General Counsel Klasic review UNS
12. Transfer of Funds, DRI
Mr. Foley moved to table this item until further information
and a per forma statement is supplied and accepted by the
Chancellor's Office regarding the transfer of $150,000 to
the DRI Research Foundation from accumulated non-State funds
to mount a 1-year marketing effort for the Dandini Research
Park. Mr. Karamanos seconded. Motion carried.

14. Approved Sale of Property, UNR
Approved the sale of property to the Nevada Department of
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is acquiring
land necessary for the alteration and reconstruction of the
intersection at the corner of Pyramid Road and Queens Way
in Sparks. UNR owns a 1.52 acre parcel at the northeast
corner of that intersection. NDOT is seeking to buy 7219
square feet of land to round-out the corner of the new in-
tersection and wants to take possession by January, 1986.
The property was donated to UNR by Dr. and Mrs. Frank Stokes
of Sparks in 1981 with the provision tht it was to be sold
for not less than the appraisal value of $170,000. 1/3 of
the proceeds from any sale were to benefit the Nevada Coun-
cil of Boy Scouts of America. The remaining 2/3 were for
use in the Dr. Frank C. Stokes Scholarship Endowment. The
initial offer from NDOT was $14,500, but has now been set
