Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

-4- H. Naming of University Property (PR 6) President Todd said that the recommendation is that the Board of Trustees approve changing the name of the Livestock Disease Diagnostic Center building on Newtown Pike to the University of Kentucky Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. This name change was requested by the College of Agriculture Dean Scott Smith. With some funding from the state government, the Center will be expanded before the World Equestrian Events. The Center is vital to the equine industry. Mr. Gatton moved approval of PR 6. Mr. Dawson seconded the motion, and it carried without dissent. (See PR 6 at the end of the Minutes.) I. Approval of Patent License Agreement (PR 7) President Todd said that PR 7 is a unique situation. Dr. Brockman had an idea that he shared with professors in engineering, and they came up with an idea that was patentable. This recommendation is to follow University policy for Board members doing business with the institution and make sure that there is full transparency. The Ethics Committee has reviewed it, and it is an admirable thing to take place. President Todd encouraged more Board members with ideas to do the same. He recommended that the Board of Trustees approve the draft license agreement between the University of Kentucky Research Foundation and Brockman-Hasting, LLC, a limited liability company which is owned in part by Board of Trustees member Dr. Brockman. The license agreement grants patent rights for an implantable intraocular pressure sensor invented through the collaborative efforts of Dr. Brockman and UK employees. Mr. Stuckert moved approval. His motion, seconded by Ms. Curris, passed without dissent. Dr. Brockman abstained from voting. (See PR 7 at the end ofthe Minutes.) J. Candidates for Degrees (AACR l ) Penny Brown, chair ofthe Academic Affairs Committee, said that AACR l is a recommendation that the president be authorized to confer upon each individual whose name appears on the list the degree to which he or she is entitled, upon certification by the university registrar that the individual has satisfactorily completed all requirements for the degree for which the application has been made and as approved by the elected faculty of the University Senate and the Academic Affairs Committee ofthe Board of Trustees. On behalf of the Academic Affairs Committee, Ms. Brown moved approval of AACR l. Dr. Sachatello seconded her motion, and it carried without dissent. (See AACR l at the end ofthe Minutes.)
