       Minutes of the Meeting of the Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky, Tuesday,
December 14, 1999.

      The Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky met at 3:00 p.m. (Lexington time)
on Tuesday, December 14, 1999 in the Board Room on the 18th floor of Patterson Office Tower.

      A.    Meeting Opened

      Mr. Billy Joe Miles, Chairperson, called the meeting to order at 3:00 p.m., and the
invocation was pronounced by Ms. Marian Sims.

      B.    Roll Call

      The following members of the Board of Trustees answered the call of the roll: Mr. Ted
Bates, Governor Edward T. Breathitt, Mr. Paul W. Chellgren, Mr. James Glenn III, Mr. Merwin
Grayson, Mr. John "Jack" Guthrie, Dr. Loys L. Mather, Dr. Robert P. Meriwether, Mr. Billy Joe
Miles (Chairman), Dr. Daniel R. Reedy, Mr. C. Frank Shoop, Ms. Marian Sims, Ms. Alice
Sparks, Dr. W. Grady Stumbo, Ms. JoEtta Y. Wickliffe, Mr. Russell Williams and Ms. Elaine
Wilson. Absent from the meeting were Dr. Elissa Plattner, and Mr. Billy Wilcoxson. The
University administration was represented by President Charles T. Wethington, Jr.; Chancellors
James W. Holsinger, and Elisabeth Zinser; Vice Presidents Fitzgerald Bramwell, Joseph T.
Burch, Ben W. Carr, Edward A. Carter, George DeBin and Eugene Williams; Dr. Juanita
Fleming, Special Assistant for Academic Affairs, and Mr. Richard E. Plymale, General Counsel.

      Members of the various news media were also in attendance. A quorum being present,
the Chairperson declared the meeting officially open for the conduct of business at 3:05 p.m.

      C.    Approval of Minutes

      Mr. Miles said that the Minutes of the Board meeting on October 26, 1999 had been
distributed and asked for any additions or corrections. Mr. Shoop moved that the Minutes be
approved as distributed. Mr. Chellren seconded the motion and it carried.

      D.    President's Report to the Board of Trustees (PR 1)

      President Wethington called attention to the following items in PR 1:

      1. Four new technology businesses that had their start at the UK Advanced Science and
         Technology Commercialization Center have set up permanent locations in the
         Lexington area: Equine Biodiagnostics, Lexington Carbo Company, GenApps, and
         Tigen Pharmaceuticals. These businesses are making the effort to be additions to the
         economic development of the state.

      2. The University has received a $17.65 million bid from Host Communications for
         radio and television broadcasting rights through 2005 for UK football and basketball




 





-2-



   games. The bid represents a 53% annual increase over the current contract and
   continues to be a major factor in keeping our athletics program whole.

3. A UK Hospital surgical team recently performed a heart transplant on a 14-year-old
   Central Kentucky boy, the youngest patient ever to receive a heart transplant at UK.

4. The Associated Collegiate Press named UK's independent newspaper one of the six
   best student papers in the nation. The Kernel received the highest honor, the
   Pacemaker Award, this year after being selected as a finalist last year. The paper last
   won a Pacemaker Award in 1985.

   President Wethington recognized Mat Heron, editor in chief, and his parents; Deanna
   Mastin, student advertising manager last year; Jim Kuder, Vice Chancellor for
   Student Affairs; Mark Vanderhoff, Mike Agin, Patsy Martin, Dr. Larry Crouch, Dean
   David Johnson and Professor Leland "Buck" Ryan, who were in the audience and are
   involved with the Kernel. He asked them to stand and be recognized, following
   which they received a round of applause. President Wethington said that this is an
   honor that is well deserved and noted that Mr. Guthrie wanted to make a comment.
   He called on Mr. Guthrie for his comments.

   Mr. Guthrie said that winning the Pacemaker at the college level is like winning the
   Pulitzer Prize or the Final Four. Being a journalist, a graduate and a former editor of
   the Kernel, he takes a great deal of pride in what the college, the school, and the
   students have done. Mat and Deanna are the types of young persons that the Board
   wants to continue to attend the University and graduate from the University. Some
   graduates you might recognize from the Journalism school are Angelo Henderson
   who won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize and is with the Wall Street Journal; Dick Wilson,
   whom all of you know is also a graduate of the journalism program; Sam Able, an
   award winning photographer with National Geographic; Judy Clabes, former editor of
   the Kentucky Post who now directs the Scripps Howard Foundation; and David
   Hawkins; and Mike Lyons, a former Kernel editor who is now Moscow Bureau Chief
   for the Washington Post.


   Mr. Guthrie noted that the Kernel has been published for over 100 years dating back
   to 1892 and has done an outstanding job for many years. He said that President
   Wethington, Chancellor Zinser, Vice Chancellor Kuder, and the Dean have provided
   leadership and financial resources to make sure that the School of Journalism and the
   independent Kentucky Kernel have had a chance to be top 20. He thanked the
   administration and the Board for recognizing these individuals.

5. President Wethington announced that the University was recently honored by having
   one of its students honored as a Marshall Scholar. Monica Grant who is a Singletary
   Scholar at UK has been awarded this very prestigious award. He recognized Ms.
   Grant in the audience along with Dr. Dan Roland and Dr. Phil Harling, co-chairs of
   Marshall/Rhodes committee, Kate Johnson, member of the committee, Dr. Richard




 





-3-



          Jeffries, chair of the Department of Anthropology, and Dean Howard Grotch, College
          of Arts and Sciences. He asked them to stand and be recognized, following which
          they received a round of applause. He congratulated Monica for this wonderful
          recognition to the University and to her. He also congratulated all of those who
          helped her, and they received a round of applause.


       President Wethington continued his report with PR 2 and said that he would come back
to the College of Architecture report.

       E.    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.

       Dr. Reedy commented to his fellow Board members and to those assembled that about a
year ago President Wethington identified funds that have come to the University for six endowed
chairs. He said that one of those has already been filled in the College of Fine Arts by a person
in the School of Music and another appointee is listed in PR 2. Dr. Enrico Mario Santi, one of
the nation's finest scholars in the Hispanic Studies field, will be joining the University in
January. He recognized President Wethington's efforts and support as well as those of other
constituent groups and wanted it to be known here that the product is being realized. It is not just
investment; it is the product that is now beginning to show. He thanked President Wethington
for the opportunity.

      President Wethington thanked Dr. Reedy for his comments and said he was pleased to
recommend approval of PR 2. On motion made by Mr. Bates, seconded by Mr. Shoop and
carried, PR 2 was approved. (See PR 2 at the end of the Minutes.).

      President Wethington said he would like to update the Board on the progress being made
in the deans' search process ongoing at the University of Kentucky. He noted that the Board
would see the results of one of the searches later on the agenda. He reported that the searches are
moving along very well. With the search process for the Dean of the College of Law, Chancellor
Zinser has now interviewed four candidates, and he is delighted with those candidates in the
pool. A decision hopefully will be made shortly after the first of the year and a recommendation
for a Dean of the College of Law brought to the Board at the January or March Board meeting.

      He reported that the other major dean search for the Dean of the College of Business and
Economics is also moving. The Search Committee has been appointed, and the advertisements
and announcements have been sent out. Candidates have not yet been brought in for interviews,
but they will be brought in shortly after the first of the year. Our goal for both of these searches
is to have someone approved by the Board and on the job by July 1, 2000. He said he hoped the
business and economics dean's search will move along equally as well as the College of Law
dean search, but it is a bit behind the law school in terms of schedule.

       F.     College of Architecture Report

       President Wethington said he would like to complete the first part of the Presidents report
by asking the Dean of Architecture to present a report about the College. He asked Chancellor
Zinser to make comments and introduce Dean David Mohney.

       Chancellor Zinser said she was very pleased to introduce Dean David Mohney. Dean
Mohney came to the University of Kentucky as Dean in 1994. Prior to that he spent 10 years in
private practice in architecture in New York with Chan and Mohney Architecture. He was
educated at Cranbrook School, Harvard College and Princeton University. He has taught
architecture at the Institute for Architecture and Urban Design in New York and at Harvard's
graduate school of design. He is co-author of a book called "Seaside, making a town in
America". He has received the AIA citation for excellence in international architecture books
publishing in 1992, and he is currently finishing a manuscript for another book which will be
about residential architecture of Philip Johnson. That is scheduled to come out in the fall of
2000.

       She reported that Dean Mohney is in his second term on the Kentucky Board of
Architects and was recently elected president. He and his wife, Joan Chan, live in Gratz Park in
Lexington with their two sons.

       Dean Mohney gave the following report:

       Two thousand years ago, a Roman engineer named Vitruvius defined architecture as an
equal balance between 'commodity, firmness, and delight.' Vitruvius also defined the
components necessary for the architect's education, among them mathematics, geometry,
philosophy, history, rhetoric and engineering. Even two millenia later, these definitions work
extraordinarily well.

       The College of Architecture at the University of Kentucky strives to provide a true broad-
based, humanist education, combining aspects of the natural sciences, social sciences, and the
arts. This serves our students well, giving them the abilities to design buildings which fulfill
Vitruvius' three precepts: Commodity, that a building should suit its purpose; Firmness, that it
should be built to last, and Delight, that it should please all those people who come in contact
with it.

       The College of Architecture emerged in the late 1 950s from an option in the Department
of Civil Engineering. The School of Architecture was established in 1965, with the graduation
of the first class in the architecture program, and two years later, the school became a college.
For the next thirty years, the College of Architecture offered a single professional degree. In
1997, a second degree, in Historic Preservation, was added to the College's programs.

       Architecture is licensed as a profession by each state. The licensing procedure typically
involves three steps: graduation from an accredited program, three years internship in a
professional office, and a passing grade on all components of a national licensing examination.
In addition providing the architectural program, the College works with students in securing




 





-5-



employment in offices, and preparation for the licensing exam.

       Nationally, 112 universities in 43 states offer accredited programs in architecture. These
can be either a Bachelor of Architecture degree or a Masters of Architecture degree; either will
suffice for licensing. The National Architectural Accreditation Board accredits these programs
for terms ranging from five years to three years to two years (probation). The College's
architecture program has always been accredited for a five-year term since its founding.
Preservation programs are not accredited.

       The College makes use of a selective admissions procedure. Typically, approximately
250 students apply for admission, and about 100 are accepted. Of these, 85 arrive on campus to
begin the program. At the present time, we have students from 14 countries on five continents,
and 23 states, enrolled. 78% are residents of Kentucky. 33% are female. The average ACT
score is 25.83.

       The curriculum in architecture is a five-year program, and consists of 176 credit hours.
There are substantial components in the history and theory of architecture (27 credit hours) and
technology and professional areas (30 credit hours) as well. The design studio is the core of the
program, comprising 62 credit hours, through all ten semesters. The studio is a very public
educational process, combining the best aspects of teaching, research and service through verbal
presentations and public feedback of the work represented.

       The preservation program is interdisciplinary, with significant contributions from other
university departments such as history, landscape architecture, anthropology, geography, interior
design, and archeology. There is an emphasis on design, and the program is widely supported
across the Commonwealth. It requires 48 credit hours in the two-year program.

      The overall graduation rate in architecture was 71 %. Attrition usually occurs in the first
year of the program, and this has decreased significantly in the last 4 years. Therefore we expect
the overall graduation rate to increase as these classes move through the program. Our graduates
work both in Kentucky as well as around the country, in major offices in New York, Chicago,
Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Approximately 15% go on to graduate school, at institutions such as
Harvard, Columbia, UCLA, Cornell, and other schools.

       The College defines its mission as "Poetry and Pragmatics in a Public World." We
believe that the highest aspirations of design can be carried to a wide public audience through
professional work. Our outreach efforts, combining teaching and research in a service capacity,
have increased significantly in the last five years, including downtown design centers in
Lexington and Louisville, and projects in other areas of Kentucky such as Clark County, Nelson
County, Mercer County, Menifee County, and others. We have also carried out regular off-
campus educational programs for our students, including studios in Venice, Paris, Berlin, Japan
and India, and Istanbul.

       Faculty in the College have been recognized with a number of awards, including an NEH
fellowship, international awards, Fellowship in the American Institute of Architects,
international publication awards, competition honors, and lectures at major academic institutions

in this country and internationally. The College maintain strong relations with all five
professional organizations in architecture, including the AIA (American Institute of Architects),
NCARB (National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, and the Kentucky Board of
Architects), ACSA (Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture), AIAS (American
Institute of Architects Student organization), and NAAB (National Architectural Accrediting
Board). Over the last five years, the College has initiated a major development effort, resulting
in significantly increased private giving and the first three endowed faculty positions in the
College's history.

       In Building Community, the 1997 assessment of professional architectural education
carried out by the Carnegie Endowment for Teaching, Ernest Boyer wrote, "The larger purpose
of architects is not necessarily to become practitioners and just build, but to become part of a
community that enriches society." The College is dedicated to that goal, calling in its strategic
plan for expanded research and service that will benefit communities in Kentucky and
nationwide; a greater degree of integration of teaching with research and service; revision to the
B. Arch degree and consideration of the implementation of an M. Arch degree; and improved
facilities.

       President Wethington said Dean Mohney would be pleased to respond to any questions.

       Governor Breathitt said he wanted to express his appreciation to the Dean for recognizing
his responsibility for outreach for the institution that is a land grant institution. Dean Mohney
had not been at the University a year until he got him to fly down to Auburn University to see
what they were doing with an architect school. They were building homes out of what they
could find there, such as bottles, old tires, hay bales etc. That is an example of a fine new dean
who is on campus who is innovative and moving ahead. He congratulated Dean Mohney for the
things he is doing in Louisville and said the outreach in Louisville is outstanding.

       Dean Mohney thanked Governor Breathitt for his support and said Governor Breathitt
was not insignificant in making some of that happen.

      President Wethington asked for any questions or comments from the Board. He thanked
Dean Mohney for a very fine report.

       G.    Proposed Amendments to the Governing Regulations (PR 3A)

       President Wethington said PR 3A is a proposed change to the Governing Regulations
which came to the Board at its last meeting October 26th. He reminded the Board that the
university's rules state that this regulation must stay on the table for a month prior to being
considered for approval by the Board. These proposed amendments could be classified as
editorial changes rather than being substantive changes. He said he was pleased to bring PR 3A
to the Board for consideration for approval. Dr. Mather moved approval of PR 3A. His motion,
seconded by Ms. Wilson, carried. (See PR 3A at the end of the Minutes.)

       H.    Proposed Amendment to the Governing Regulations (PR 3B)

       President Wethington said that PR 3B was mentioned at the last Board meeting. At that
meeting, he indicated to the Board that he had a proposal from the faculty senate recommending
a change in the composition of the joint committee, the committee formed when a search for a
president is taking place. Since that time, he had gone to what he thought were the affected
bodies and sought input. He said he got input from the Senate Council and had sent a letter to
the Community College Council and the Chancellor of the Community College System since the
resolution impacted the community college representation on the joint committee. He reported
that he got feedback from the Medical Center indicating their interest in some changes in the
composition of the joint committee. Generally, he touched all the bases to get input from those
interested or impacted.

       President Wethington said that his charge was to bring that recommendation to the Board
along with his recommendation, noting that is the way the Governing Regulations require that it
be done. He said he had re-worked part of the regulation that dealt with the faculty, staff, and
student representation in the search process. Those changes are reflected in PR 3B and are
brought to the Board for consideration. He called attention to the background information on
page 2 of the recommendation and noted the change in composition of the joint committee. He
explained that the proposed amendment will add staff and faculty representatives from those
important constituent groups to the joint committee. The change in faculty representation will
eliminate community college faculty representation since 13 UK community colleges are now
managed by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and insure
representation from the Medical Center faculty. The addition of one student will provide for
graduate or professional student representation as well as undergraduate student representation.
The addition of two members of the Board will continue the 50-50 balance between Board
members and other representatives that currently exists in the composition of the joint
committee. This recommendation will increase the size of an already large joint committee. He
said it will take the membership from 10 to 14, and he thinks that is a serious issue for the Board
to consider. In addition to the increase in number, it will add a student representative from the
graduate and professional ranks. Currently, that representative is likely to be an undergraduate
student. It will add an alumni member to the joint committee which, in his opinion, is certainly
appropriate.

      President Wethington said he was bringing this proposed amendment to the Board as he
is charged to do. He truly thinks this is a matter and issue for the Board to resolve. Does the
Board wish to increase the size of the joint committee, and if in fact they do, what ought to be the
composition? If the Board chooses to increase the size, he said he had some recommendations
about representation on that joint committee which, in his opinion, would be worthy of the
Board's consideration. He said he would like to put this proposed amendment on the table for
consideration by the Board.

      Dr. Reedy said he would like to make some comments and a motion. He said he would
like to make a motion to table action on this item in order to give opportunity for further study
and to look at where the composition of the search committee should go at sometime in the




 





-8-



future and not necessarily now. He said he agreed with what the President had proposed in terms
of constituent representation and firmly supported that in the discussions that have come along to
date. However, he feels that an increase of a committee to a total of 14 reaches the outer limits
of manageability. He suggested that the item be tabled indefinitely that there be a group of
individuals to look at how a committee should be formulated for future searches. In essence, his
recommendation would intend that the Board make no modification in the existing search
committee as it currently stands in the Governing Regulations, if in fact that search is to begin in
the near future.

       Ms. Sparks said she agreed with the President and she agreed that 14 is probably
unworkable because the attendance at every meeting is pretty crucial.

       President Wethington said that Dr. Reedy had made a motion and asked Ms. Sparks if her
comment was a second to Dr. Reedy's motion.

       Ms. Sparks replied, "yes."

       Mr. Miles said that there could be discussion

       Mr. Guthrie agreed that the Board should take a further look at the proposal. The Alumni
Association is favored with three individuals already on the Board and hopefully from these
three there might be one selected to participate. Fourteen is a whole lot to get together.

       Mr. Williams said he would be remiss if he did not express his concern at the tabling of
this motion, particularly since the faculty senate was good enough to make recommendation that
the community college faculty person be replaced with a non-teaching staff person. The staff are
the only constituency group in the university community not represented on the search
committee. He said he would be hung out and dried if he did not say this. He voted against the
tabling of the proposal for that very reason.

       Mr. Bates said the proposal should be reviewed, and as a matter of record, he would
oppose an early beginning of the search committee.

       Governor Breathitt said the position taken by the students is a valid one. After all, that is
the whole reason the Board is there. There are 26,000 students and nearly 7,000 at the Lexington
Community College. In his opinion, the student body ought to be represented at least by two,
and the Board ought to seriously consider this.

       Mr. Glenn said he also had concern about tabling the matter indefinitely. He said he did
not have a problem with looking at it. Obviously, this is not an issue the Board wants to take
lightly, looking at the future of the University. We want to make sure that the people that are
brought in and involved in the presidential search are the best people and make sure that the
committee does not get too large. He does, however, think there is a danger in tabling the matter
indefinitely. There are a number of constituencies involved to make sure there is more student
and staff representation on the committee. He said he felt that tabling it indefinitely would not
address the matter. The Board needs to go ahead and take care of the matter as it stands now.

       Mr. Guthrie asked Mr. Miles if he could ask the Ad hoc Committee on Board
Committees to look at this issue and explore it. He agreed that it should not be tabled
indefinitely, but it does need study. He thinks both the staff and student representatives on the
Board have good points, and it needs to be looked at.

       Mr. Shoop said he did not have a problem with tabling it, but he does think it needs to be
sent to the committee for recommendation. He does not believe the Board needs another
committee. The Board has enough committees.

       Mr. Miles said there was no urgency. The committee will not be named right away.
There is a lot of rumors about the search committee and when the search is going to start. He
said it would be at least spring before the Board thinks about naming the committee.

       Dr. Reedy said he would be glad to modify his recommendation.

       Mr. Grayson indicated that an item tabled could be brought back at any point in time.

       President Wethington added to the discussion the fact that adding the student and alumni
members obviously will increase the size. It was his decision that if in fact the size was going to
be increased by those either employed or students of the University that there ought to be an
equal addition of members from the Board. Obviously, that is one of the reasons it has gone
from 10 to 14. The additional two from the Board is simply to keep the balance that has been
there. A tabling like Mr. Grayson indicated could be brought back at any point as he
understands.

      Mr. Williams said he guessed he needed some clarification. He said that he attended the
meeting where the faculty senate passed the resolution to amend the Governing Regulations, and
it was simply a replacement of the community college faculty member with the non-teaching
staff person. He said the question is, "Where is that resolution? Where is that
recommendation?"

      President Wethington said that recommendation has been modified into the one that is
now in front of the Board (PR 3B). The Board has a copy of the Senate Council
recommendation in their packet. His charge is, when a recommendation comes from the
University Senate, to bring the recommendation to the Board with his recommendation. PR 3B
is his recommendation in response to what the University Senate did. Had there not been such a
recommendation, he would not have proposed to have brought forth any such recommendation
regarding the joint committee at this time. It was occasioned by the University Senate making a
recommendation which he could not ignore.

      Mr. Grayson said there was a motion on the floor, and the chair has already indicated that
he is not in any great rush to appoint the committee. Therefore, he called for action on the
motion.



On motion made by Dr. Reedy and seconded by Ms. Sparks, Dr. Reedy's motion carried.

      I.    Candidates for Degrees - Community College System (PR 4A)

      President Wethington said PR 4A is a recommendation that the degree specified on the
attached list be awarded to persons named upon certification that the requirements for those
degrees have been satisfactorily completed. He reminded the Board that for a period of time the
Board would be awarding degrees to students in the Community College System that complete
their degree requirements. He said he was pleased to recommend approval of PR 4A. Mr.
Chellgren moved approval. His motion, seconded by Mr. Guthrie, carried. (See PR 4A at the
end of the Minutes.)

      J.    Candidates for Degrees - University System (PR 5A)

      President Wethington said that PR 5A is a companion document for the University
System. The recommendation is that the President be authorized to confer upon each individual
whose name appears on the attached list the degree to which he or she is entitled upon
certification by the Registrar that the individual has completed the requirements for the degree
and as approved by the University Senate. He said he was pleased to recommend the approval of
PR 5A. Dr. Reedy moved approval. Mr. Shoop seconded the motion, and it passed. (See PR 5A
at the end of the Minutes.)

      K.    Appointments/Reappointments to University of Kentucky Business Partnership
Foundation (PR 5B)

      President Wethington said PR 5B is the recommendation that approval be given to the
appointment and reappointment of the following members to the Board of Directors of the
University of Kentucky Business Partnership Foundation for four-year terms. These individuals
on the list were unanimously elected to the Board of Directors at their October 2nd meeting, and
the Articles of Incorporation approved by this Board require that these appointments or
reappointments come to the University Board of Trustees for final approval. He said he was
pleased to recommend the appointment of James F. Hardymon and Michael D. Malone, and the
