Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

- 2 - 4. Eighteen central Kentucky school systems, which serve approximately 60,000 students, have formed a cooperative as recommended in Kentucky's new education reform act and have headquartered it at the University of Kentucky. 5. The College of Pharmacy received official notification that its baccalaureate and doctor of pharmacy programs have been reaccredited for six years by the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education. 6. Bernard Shaw, principal Washington anchor for Cable News Network, was on campus March 26 to deliver the 1991 Joe Creason Lecture. President Wethington asked the members to read the other items in the report at their leisure. He called upon Mr. Lohman to comment on Item 2 in his report, Chinese Student to Speak at University Day. Mr. Lohman reported that University Day is the beginning of a new tradition. It will be a day sponsored by the senior class each year to show its support for the University. He stated that the theme for the class of 1991 is Tiananmen Square. Chai Ling, who was quoted as the goddess of freedom in China and who led the students at Tiananmen Square, will be the featured speaker at University Day. He reviewed the list of festivities for the new tradition and invited the Trustees to attend. He reported that the class of 1991 is creating a student endowment fund as part of the library's fund raising effort. Seniors are being asked to donate $35 which will be used to purchase a book for the library. The book will have a plaque with the student's name and the class of 1991 inscribed in it. This effort will help students create ties with the University. President Wethington commended Mr. Lohman and the students for starting a new, worthwhile tradition at the University. He also commended them for their choice of theme and for their support of the University's library. D. Personnel Actions PR 2) President Wethington recommended that approval be given to the appointments, actions and/or other staff changes which require Board action, and that the report relative to appointments and/or changes already approved by the administration be accepted. Professor Rhoads so moved. The motion, seconded by Mr. Stricker, passed. (See PR 2 at the end of the Minutes.) E. Statement of University Purpose and Mission (PR 3A) President Wethington reported that the Statement of University Purpose and Mission is a part of the University's self-study and needs to come before the Board. He noted that the Senate Council, however, has not officially reviewed the statement. It is, therefore, being withdrawn from the agenda. He noted that the statement will be brought back to the Board at the April 30, 1991 meeting. Without objection, PR 3A was withdrawn from the agenda.
