For this service the University will be reimbursed in the amount of $30, 000 and the contract covers the period April 1964 through June 30, 1964. After a brief discussion of the items contained in the report, on motion by _Mr., Kingsib~ury and duly seconded, the Supplementary Recommendations of the President were approved and ordered made a part of the official Minutes of the meeting. F. Establishment of Board of Student Publications Dr. Oswald requested permission not to follow the agenda since he wished the Governor to be present for the discussion of certain specific items. The permission being granted, he distributed copies of the following report: ESTABLISHMENT OF BOARD OF STUDENT PUBLICATIONS Recommendation: (1) that the Board of Trustees rescind its present policy which places the responsibility for student publications with the School of Journalism; and (2) that the Board of Trustees authorize the President to establish a Student Publications Board with representation from students, faculty, and administration which will have responsibility for editorial and financial policy of student publica- tions and for personnel operating the campus-wide student publications, the Kernel and the Kentuckian. Background: The change in the organizational structure proposed for student publications is recommended in response to the findings of the Student Personnel Advisory Committee and the expressed wishes of interested students and faculty to create an organizational structure more responsive to and representative of the needs of the University. With the proposed organizational change, a Board of approximately six students, three faculty, and three members-at-large drawn from the faculty, administration, alumni, and professional journalists will participate as a Board in the formulation of policies for the student publications which will assure a strong and vigorous Kernel and Kentuckian. While the School of Journalism will no longer be responsible for the Kernel and the Kentuckian under this recommendation, the continued use of student publications as a basis for a journalism practicum is planned. The faculty of the School of Journalism is in agreement with these recommendations.
