Members, University Senate
University Senate Council

AGENDA ITEM: University Senate Meeting, Monday,
December I2, 1977. Proposal to add a statement in the
University Senate Rules (to be codified by the Rules
Committee if approved) concerning attendance the first
week of classes.

The Faculty Council of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Senate
Committee on Admissions and Academic Standards and the University
Senate Council recommend the following prOposed addition to the Senate
Rules, to be codified by the Rules Committee if approved:

Proposed Addition:

"Students who miss the first two class periods of a course without notify-
ing the department of their intention to attend may be [dropped from the
course.I reported by the department to the Registrar who will drop them
from the course. " (Delete portion in brackets; add underlined portion.)

Background: At its meeting on November 14, 1977, the University Senate
considered the proposed addition and subsequently voted to send it back to
Committee. The Committee on Admissions and Academic standards re—
considered the proposal, responded to the questions that were raised on
the Senate floor, and recommended to the Senate Council that the proposal
be brought back to the Senate as amended. The Senate Council concurs
with the Committee‘s recommendation.

Questions and Answers:


1) Will there be inconsistencies from course to course or section to

There probably will be some as it is a permissive rather than a
mandatory rule. This really does not matter as it is still the
student's responsibility to know whether he or she is dropped
from the course.

Agenda Item: University Senate: “Two Class Period Drop Rule"
December 1, 1977


If the intent of the measure is to open classes which are full at the
beginning of the semester, why not make the rule applicable to all
classes within the University?

It is applicable to all departments who choose to use it., As stated
above, however, it is permissive rather than mandatoryo

Will this in effect provide another mechanism for dropping a class?

Non It is the student's responsibility, if he misses the first two
classes without having notified the department, to check to see if he
has been drOpped° If he has not been drOpped but wishes to be, he
must follow the normal drop procedure”

How will the student be notified of the proposal?

It will be published in the catalog and the schedule booko In ad-
dition, the Senate Student Affairs Committee will be asked to find
other means of publicizing the rule.

Who in each college will determim how this is to be implemented?

The department chairman, or in the case of a college without depart—
ments, the dean.

Proposed Implementation Date: Fall Semester, 1978.



The University Senate met in regular session at 3: 00 p.m. , Monday, December 12, 1977,

Chairman Wilson presented Dr. Peter P . Bosomworth, Vice President for the
Medical Center. '

Vice President Bosomworth spoke to the Senate as follows:

Chairman Wilson, members of the Senate, and guests who may be present:
I acknowledge with pleasure the opportunity to report briefly to you on develop-
ments in the various colleges of the Medical Center and to discuss certain
issues and questions which have been suggested as topics of interest.

First, The
College of Medicine

The Administrative structure of the Dean‘s office in the College of Medi-
cine has undergone substantial reorganization in the last 18 months. This
reorganization has led to a reduction in the number of associate deans to
four positions , each with line responsibilities , for Academic and Student
Affairs , Basic Sciences , Clinical Sciences, and Primary Care and Communi-
ty Health. The Physician Services Plan (PSP) has received significant
attention in recent months. Although some focus has been placed on ques-
tions of compensation and control of funds, it should be noted that the
Plan staff has been increasingly effective in its capacity to collect funds for
patient care services. Income from this source forms a fundamental, indeed
critical, portion of the operating budget of the College on behalf of the
clinical faculty. The faculty, particularly the PSP Committee, is hard at
work developing a new professional practice plan. Although the format of
the plan is not finalized, options under consideration include the creation
of a separate corporation, greater return of funds to generating depart-
ments, and flexibility in the use of the income.

Similarly, the malpractice insurance plan, recently ruled unconsti-
tutional by the State Supreme Court, is undergoing redevelopment.
Internal differences are not the Source of the problem; rather, it is finan-
cing alternatives and keeping options open so faculty, staff, and students
are protected. The University Legal Counsel is evaluating options that
might slightly modify our present Self-insurance approach, hopefully at
a lower cost.



The College of Medicine faculty has reorganized itself with a seven-
member elected Faculty Council. As many of you are aware, this Council
has been extremely active , working on issues relative to academic policy
and maintenance of the academic environment. Hopefully, many of their
recommendations can be supported by physical and financial resources
as we look to this and future biennia. Progress in financing should lead
to more effective teaching and research.

The Office of Academic Affairs within the College has created a Division
of Educational Development, created primarily through external grants,
which carries out educational research, conducts course evaluations, and
provides staff support to the curriculum committees and the Faculty Council
and academic refenforcement programs for students. In addition, it
provides a "mini" course on teaching methodolology and technology for new

Three academic departments--Pathology, Anesthesiology, and Com-
munity Medicine-—which were in significant difficulty prior to the period of
this report, have been or are being rebuilt with new personnel. All are
making significant progress toward the goal of excellence in teaching and
research programs , as well as providing improved patient care services.
Community Medicine, with its new relationship to the Fayette County Health
Department, provides a unique opportunity for program development of
national significance. The College is still working to bring new strengths
and stability to its Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology.

Major changes have been made in the curriculum in the second, third,
and fourth years of the College, which provide students with a significantly
improved course in the pathology of disease, increased elective time, and
the removal of subspecialty experiences from the third year. Furthermore,
the College has developed the fourth year in concert with the University
of Louisville School of Medicine, so that students can elect courses as ex-
change students in order to minimize the cost of duplication of certain
specialty areas and to provide an opportunity for joint use of extramural
area health education system sites. A six-week extramural clerkship is
now required for all medical students.

University Hospital: The prime clinical teaching facility of the Medical
Center is University Hospital, which now has 467 beds and is approved by
the Joint Commission on Accreditation of the American Hospital Association
and the American Medical Association. In addition to the usual complement
of medical specialties found in modern teaching hospitals, University
Hospital also provides cardiothoracic surgery, respiratory intensive care,
radiation therapy, renal transplantation and dialysis, neonatal intensive
care, and burn therapy. During the period covered by this report, Uni-
versity Hospital activated a patient care service addition which provides
25 additional intensive care beds; a Clinac lS-million volt linear accelerator
for cancer therapy; a cardiac catheterization laboratory; a burn unit; and
expanded radiology services to include mammography, ultrasonography,
and computerized axial tomography.



The neonatal intensive care unit has been expanded from 17 to 31 beds,
partially at the expense of closing pediatrics beds , and is now being operated
in three different locations in the building. I am hopeful that the Eastern
Kentucky Health Systems Agency will come forward with a plan for regional-
ization of infant health care services . If this action is associated with
appropriate reimbursement mechanisms for care, we should see other
hospitals and pediatricians willing to provide intermediate care for these

During the past year, there were 35,000 emergency room visits; 16,000
patients were admitted to the Hospital; more than 2,000 infants were de-
livered by the obstetrical staff; and over 60 out-patient specialty clinics
reported more than 176,000 patient visits which involved approximately
three-quarters of a million laboratory tests.

Funding for the operation of University Hospital is predominantly
generated from patient income and from third-party payors. Less than one—
fifth of the operating budget comes from State sources appropriated directly
to the University. The Medical Center also has staffing and operating res-
ponsibilities at the Veterans Administration Hospital, which added another
91,000 out-patient visits , and also involved services provided by our faculty
to 13,000 patients. The operating budgets for these two facilities exceed
$60 million. The College also maintains active affiliations, for the purpose
of training residents and students , with all the Lexington hospitals , as
well as with a number of regional hospitals throughout the State.

Managing the funding and maintaining adequate cash flow is one of the
difficult aspects of Hospital operations . Changes in Vocational Rehabilita-
tion financing and the United Mine Workers strike with resultant termination
of reimbursement for medical and hospital services for patient care can and,
indeed, may have profound effects on financial stability at the Medical

The most critical problems relating to Hospital operations involve the
need for space for complex patient care services , for more single patient
rooms , and for larger numbers of professional staff and faculty. Our studies
Show that clinical faculty are seriously overworked in many areas . Current
planning shows a justifiable need for more clinical faculty to care for
patients beyond those numbers that can be justified for teaching. In addi-
tion, space for obstetrics, emergency care, neonatal care, and support
services and modernization of the Hospital is required. President Single-
tary has recognized these needs in the Five—Year Plan.

Beyond the highly specialized patient care services previously referred
to, the Colleges are heavily involved in the development of primary care,
which largely focuses on ambulatory patients. The Department of Family
Practice, mandated by Kentucky Statute, was organized in 1973 for the pur-
pose of training new physicians in the specialty of Family Practice, in
order to help supplement the dwindling supply of physicians who are on the
front line of health care in the state of Kentucky. This Department now has



five full—time faculty members, 22 physician residents in training , and a sub-
stantial staff of nursing and technical personnel.

The University Student Health Service also plays a role in the primary
care educational program for the students of the various colleges in the
Medical Center, as do the general clinics of Medicine and Pediatrics.

As many of you know, a primary/ambulatory care building is now in the
planning stages and, when completed, will greatly expand the potential of the
College of Medicine and other colleges in the Medical Center in training
health professionals in the primary care area, as well as improving facilities
for existing ambulatory care services.

Research: Laboratory and clinical investigations form the bulk of the College
of Medicine's research activities. A’ significant portion of these studies in-
volves projects which will give a better understanding of cellular structure
and organ function. Current projects range from studies of enzyme systems
within cells to human behavioral patterns. A number of projects are being
conducted in the area of genetic regulation, including extensive research on
the basic mechanisms of cancer; basic and clinical research in heart and
pulmonary disease; drug and alcohol related research; aging; and many
other fields . I could go on with a further lengthy listing of research which,
essentially, is totally extramurally funded at a current level of $6. 3 million.
Despite the many excellent research projects currently being carried out

in both basic science and clinical areas , the faculty are seriously compro-
mised by space constraints and face a critical need for research and office
space to maintain the existing program. The recommendation for that
space, as you know, has been supported by the President, endorsed by

the Board of Trustees, and currently, along with a facility request for the
College of Pharmacy and the Hospital space, is before the Council on Higher
Education. It is my understanding that we can expect approval for archi-
tectural planning for these three projects. The space for the Cancer Netr
work, at the moment, is fully dependent on obtaining private and Federal
funds. Development of both these aspects is being vigorously pursued:

As previously described, the patient care load problem for faculty is
serious and excessive for most clinical departments. The patient care prob—
lem compromises the time for research, since clinical faculty legitimately
feel that patient care needs are a first priority.

College of Dentistry

The University of Kentucky College of Dentistry continues to place pri-
mary importance on its objective of providing manpower for high caliber
dental health care to the people of Kentucky. To accomplish this goal and to
insure that all geographical sections of the State are. provided for , the
College has made successful use of its Externship Program. Through this
program, third and fourth-year dental students visit for a number of weeks
with cooperating dentists practicing in rural settings. While there, the stu-
dents are provided with an opportunity to examine first—hand the factors
involving the practice of dentistry and life in a new and oftentimes unfamiliar



environment. In the past few years, the externship program has proven its
worth. More than 92% of the graduates of the class of 1976 who elected to
enter private practice remained in Kentucky. Information compiled on the
1977 class shows that a large majority remained in the State, mostly in the
rural areas.

Research: The research program in the College of Dentistry, funded pri-
marily through extramural funds at a level of three quarters of a million
dollars , has spanned a broad spectrum of studies, including the texture and
strength of new materials for artificial dentures and fillings and research

to determine the effects of sugar substitutes on bacteria that cause dental
caries. Additional research is focused directly on health issues , as well

as studies bearing on the feasibility of using expanded duty auxiliary
personnel in private practice settings.

The service programs in Dentistry have expanded into new areas in—
volving the handicapped; the development of a clinic focused specifically
on myofacial pain; expansion of the emergency dental service; and the
creation of a Saturday morning clinic for children whose dental care cannot
be financed, sponsored by the Kentucky Chapter of the American Dental
Student Association.

Current concerns of faculty include the need for additional space,
modernization of facilities , and the future role of the College in the primary
care program.

College of Nursing

The College of Nursing has strengthened itself with respect to cre-
dentials of faculty. An entirely new curriculum approved earlier in princi-
ple by the Senate, has been developed and is currently in the Senate Council
for discussion and, hopefully, approval. The College also participates in
the Area Health Education System with students in multiple sites throughout
the State. The graduate program has enjoyed major expansion in the recent
past, with offerings in family nursing practice, mental health, maternal
services , nurse midwifery, and other specialized care areas, as well as
academic preparation for teaching.

The College has taken some unique approaches to continuing education,
joining with the University‘s satellite television program and the University
of Washington College of Nursing to teach a course in nursing child assess—
ment. The faculty, with a major Federal grant, will assume continuing
education responsibilities for maternal and child health for the southeastern
region of the United States. The College looks forward to the solution of
its space problems with the completion of the Health Sciences Learning
Center/Nursing Building in the coming year.

A heavy workload is anticipated as the faculty make the major curricu-
lum transition in the coming year and continue to work on graduate program
development, particularly at off-campus sites, some in concert with the



 regional universities.

College of Pharmacy

The College of Pharmacy underwent a major self study prior to a recent
accreditation visit of the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education.
The results were quite favorable and confirmed the self-study assessment of
major needs , strengths, and weaknesses. The need for additional space
was empasized as critical for continuation of existing programs, as was
the need to expand faculty to provide clinical servicesand provide educa-
tional opportunities in ambulatory care, student health, and family practice.
In addition, the College is expected to give greater attention to the social
and behavioral sciences and their application to pharmacy practice. The
accreditating group requested an examination of the level of budgetary
support for graduate and professional programs, based on their feelings
that additional support may be required, particularly in View of potential
loss of capitation funds.

The Pharmacy curriculum was examined and recommendations were
made on the extent of general education content of Pharmacy administration
and objectives of the Doctor of Pharmacy program.

The College is currently deeply involved in a study of whether a single
professional degree should be offered at the doctoral level. The faculty
are also looking at the question of whether specialization beyond the termi-
nal degree is appropriate.

Research: The College of Pharmacy has done important research in a
variety of areas. Further development of research potential is largely
limited by space constraints. The research, financed with more than $1
million in extramural funds , ranges from studies of disintegration and
dissolution of solid dosage forms in the gastrointestinal tract to the develop-
ment of unique methods for the rapid incorporation of short-lived radio-
nucleotides in drugs , such as the anti-tumor agents, as an approach to
studying tissue distribution of various compounds through non-invasive
methods. This College, like Medicine and Dentistry, faces serious space
problems. Hopefully, final approval of a new College of Pharmacy build-
ing will alleviate much of the present limitation on research program
development, which is appropriate and possible for existent faculty in the


College of Allied Health Professions

The College of Allied Health Professions continues to develop innovative
programs despite serious budget constraints. They currently have a major
grant to develop an interprofessional clinical education experience with all
Medical Center colleges. In addition, they are looking at a major change in
the extramural Kentucky January program. As other Medical Center
colleges make progress with their space needs , it is hoped that the College
of Allied Health can consolidate its program in one facility instead of seven.


 General Discussion

Before proceeding to some general issues , let me say a few words about
our students. One of the things that makes it fun and satisfying to be a
faculty member in one of the health professions is the dedication of the stu-
dents. With rare exception, they are bright, highly motivated young men
and women. Most are self-starters who want to learn the skills and knowledge
of their respective fields as they look towards professional careers of pub-
lic service.

It seems appropriate to comment on recent actions of the Council on
Higher Education, which has focused on issues of concern to the Medical
Center. One concern is the question of Hospital governance, with the
initial suggestion by one of the Council members that a single governance
structure be established for the two health center hospitals in Kentucky.
Both the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville are opposed
to that concept and want the freedom to develop a governance structure
which is satisfactory from each institution's point of View.

Following further discussion of the matter by the Council's Health
Sciences Advisory Committee, with input from individual members of the
Council, the Council on Higher Education approved a resolution which does
not call for the creation of a single board, but leaves the matter of governance
up to each institution. However, the resolution does call for a study of the
total governance process of the two health science centers, with the sugges-
tion that one of the options that should be studied is the creation of a
separate academic unit which would link the two health science centers to-
gether into a single corporate entity.

I personally have some serious concerns about this matter. I believe there
is a fundamental value in the present linkage of the UK Medical Center to the
total University; from the point of View of (1) scientific and service collabo-
ration which is facilitated by this relationship; (2) our very important
interaction to the health education programs in the Community College Sys-
tem, particularly in Allied Health and Nursing; (3) our utilization of
centralized University services; and, (4) most importantly, the strength the
University brings to the total budget process, particularly as it relates to
gaining commitments of State support in both recurring funds and capital
appropriation requests.

A number of people feel that such a linkage and separation would save
money. Although this study will fully analyze that question, it is my pre-
sent opinion, pending the availability of further information, that removing
the two health science centers from their existing University relationships
and linking them under a single university administration would call for
additional expenditures, as well as duplication of building and maintenance
operations, accounting and control services, housing accommodations,
student services , registrar functions , and administrative services, all or
part of which are presently provided for on a centralized basis on this cam-
pus. This problem will not be easy to deal with. There is substantial




interest in a move in this direction in certain sectors which must be recog-
nized, properly evaluated, and managed. Such a step could also set the
stage for separation of other elements of the University program.

Another area of common concern in the Medical Center has to do with
academic governance. Representatives of the various colleges are
currently in discussions regarding the existing Medical Center Academic
Council. I am not in a position to predict what will emerge from this pro-
cess, although I do not feel we will be looking at an initial proposal which
recommends the creation of a separate Medical Center Senate. I would hope
that some approach would emerge which enhances our capacity to permit
faculty to participate in, and communicate about, Medical Center academic
issues in a meaningful way . The University Senate, as it properly should,
addresses broad academic policy issues of University-wide significance,
many of which have relatively little direct bearing on the matter of faculty
participation in Medical Center academic problem-solving . Increasingly,
university medical centers are finding it necessary to integrate certain
elements of clinical educational experiences across college and departmental
lines. These approaches necessitate planning and implementation outside
of the traditional academic administrative units. Often, necessary am-
biguity about reporting relationships and varying goals and objectives lead
to concern on the part of faculty. These and similar problems call for
careful examination of communication alternatives by faculty and adminis-
trators who are involved in these processes.

I would like to conclude on a note of responsibility for administrators and
faculty as they look to the future . The concerns of our very important in~
ternal constituents must, of course, be recognized and responded to. How-
ever, the external publics ultimately determine our health and well-being.
You, as academic leaders and we, as administrators, must keep our fingers
on numerous pulses in an attempt to balance reasonable and proper academic
goals with public expectations, particularly with reference to the educational
needs of young people and our public service and research priorities.

Vice President Bosomworth was given an enthusiastic round of applause.

Chairman Wilson presented Dr . Stephen Langston, Assistant Vice President for
Continuing Education who gave a report on the Summer School Program.

Assistant Vice President Langston spoke to the Senate as follows:

The ad hoc committee to study summer programs began meeting
last December, - December 18, I believe the last day of final exams.
We met during the spring semester, the summer, and the early part
of the fall semester to produce the report which has been forwarded
to the Senate Council.

In carrying
