Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

- 2 - E. President's Report to the Trustees (PR 1) Before beginning PR 1, President Roselle called upon Mr. Stricker to inform the Board about his son's recent noteworthy experience. Mr. Stricker reported that a lady attempting to commit suicide was floating unconscious on her back in the Ohio River. His son, Jeff, dove in the river, pulled her to shore and saved her life. President Roselle asked Dr. Dan Fulks to inform the Board about Honors Day. Dr. Fulks reported that Honors Day had been combined with the Creason lecture and the guest speaker would be Dan Rather. This is the day the University celebrates its academic purpose and recognizes academic achievemexits of the last year. He extended an invitation to the Board and the public to attend Honors Day at 3:00 p.m. on April 28. President Roselle continued with the following items in PR 1: 1. Dan Fulks, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, College of Business and Economics, will be the new academic ombudsman for 1989-90. He will assume his new duties on July 1, succeeding William G. Moody. The academic ombudsman is mainly responsible for handling issues of concern to students or for problems which have gone through the usual channels and have not been solved to the satisfaction of all concerned. Any student comments received by the Board should be submitted to Dr. Fulks. 2. At the time PR I was printed, Somerset Community College had been named by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges as one of three commuity colleges in the country with outstanding business programs. At the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges meeting on Friday, it was further announced that Somerset was named the top community college in the country in terms of its business program. 3. President Roselle encouraged Board members to fully take part in Honors Day and stated that invitations were in the mail. 4. Special attention was called to the development efforts in the Community College System. The 14 colleges in the system report that $1,210,217 was given by the private sector. The community colleges are truly functioning as community colleges, and the Community College System continues to be a source of pride for the University of Kentucky. President Roselle asked that the Board review the other items in PR I at their leisure.
