F. University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Foundation, Inc. Amendment to Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws (PR 3)
President Todd said that PR 3 is recommending changes in the articles and bylaws of the Gluck Equine Research Foundation. Basically, it is an effort to correct some titles; to expand the number of members on the board from 25 to 30, which will allow a broader, more inclusive board; and to clarify the duties and obligations of the board members. Since announcing the equine initiatives a few years ago, the population of local thoroughbred farms that want to be actively involved with UK has gone up significantly. He recommended approval of the changes in PR 3 and noted that the changes were approved by the Gluck Equine Research Foundation Board on October 14.
Ms. Ball called for a motion of approval, and Ms. Curris moved approval. Her motion, seconded by Ms. Haney, passed without dissent. (See PR 3 at the end of the Minutes.)
G. Establishment of Engineering Alumni Association Professorship (PR 4)
President Todd said that PR 4 recommends the establishment of an Engineering Alumni Association Professorship. This professorship is similar to the professorships that the Board approved September 16, 2003 and April 22, 2008. It will be funded by Dean Tom Lester of the College of Engineering using discretionary funds that are available to him on a yearly basis, and the amount will be determined by him. Dean Lester has been very successful with the first two professorships, and by adding a third professorship in the College of Engineering, he can be more competitive. Mr. Dawson moved approval of PR 4. Mr. Branscum seconded the motion, and it carried without dissent. (See PR 4 at the end of the Minutes.)
