Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

Office ofthe President June l4, 20 ll Members, Board of Trustees: PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO GOVERNING REGULATIONS: TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS Recommendation: that the Board of Trustees receive the attached revision of Governing Regulation, Port U (GR II), consisting of technical corrections, for preliminary consideration. The proposed revision does not include substantive changes. The revision consists of technical corrections necessary to bring the GR into consistency with other University regulations and practices. Background: The proposed revision to GR II consists of the following: Paragraph 3 In order to bring GR II into consistency with GR XIII, the Business Procedures Manual is added to the types of University regulations and policies that the President is authorized by the Board of Trustees to promulgate. Section A. 2(b) The language defining the status of faculty in administrative positions was updated in Human Resources Policy and Procedure #4.0 in 2009. The proposed revision to GR II makes the GR language consistent with the HR policy with respect to faculty eligible to vote and eligible to serve as elected members of the Board of Trustees. Section A.6(g) In June 2005, the Board of Trustees increased from $100,000 to $400,000, the threshold amount for gifts to the University that must be accepted by the Board. However, the language was inadvertently omitted from the GR during a later revision. The proposed revision adds the gift threshold amount back into the GR. A revised copy ofthe relevant section of GR II is attached. Proposed additions are underlined, proposed deletions are lined through. Action taken: IZI Approved EI Disapproved EI Other
