The minutes of March ll, 1968 were approved as circulated.


The Secretary, University Senate Council, extended to the University Senate, on
d behalf of the Board of Trustees, an invitation to attend the annual dinner for the (
” Senate to be held on Monday, May 6, 1968, at Spindletop Hall. He also reported that
of the six nominees who were approved by the Senate to be awarded honorary degrees at

the May 13th Commencement, five had accepted; that the sixth, Mr. Whitney Young, 5
. . . J "‘5‘,
had declined because of a prior commitment. /W\»~

Professor Paul Oberst, a non—voting faculty member on the Board of Trustees,
reported to the Senate that he did not wish to be a candidate for membership on ‘
the Faculty—Trustees Committee to search for a suitable candidate as President of
the University; that he felt he could best serve the faculty of the University by

Minutes of the University Senate, April 8, 1968

continuing to serve out his term as a Faculty Trustee, being there when the four
of his colleagues, together with four of the Trustees, constituting the Search q
Committee, bring in the report of that Committee; that while he would not have ‘
. a vote at that time, he would have a voice which he felt might be useful in adding Q

r to the other voices who will be considering the proposal made by the Search Committee. f ‘M;


Professor Oberst spoke of the many rumors which circulated through the campus im—
mediately preceding and following the resignation of the President, none of which
were valid; that because the faculty has a Senate and the Senate has a Council, the y
Council was there to act for the faculty; that it immediately prepared a letter i,
which was delivered to the Governor by the Vice—chairman of the Board asking that M
the Governor take into account, in selecting the joint Faculty—Trustees Committee, 1
the tradition of the University which calls for an election by the faculty of four W
persons to participate equally with four Trustees in the search. He stated that »E'
the Board of Trustees unanimously supported this tradition and authorized that the h
election of faculty members be held. He told of the cooperative spirit of the l!
Trustees and that the faculty portion of the Committee would find the Trustees very M






knowledgeable concerning the problems of the University and the aspirations of its .
faculty, and that the faculty committee would have nothing less than a very fine 2,
experience with the Board membership.


He urged the faculty to do their best to select good faculty representation for service
on the Committee, and that they continue to go about their tasks with confidence,
secure in the belief that an excellent president will be found and that the faculty
will have had a very important role in his selection.

The Chairman reported that of the four faculty members to be elected, three are ‘i
i to come from the campus and one is to be elected from the Community College System; ”
that the one to be elected from the Community College System will be elected by ar—
rangements handled by the Representative Council of that System; and that the person
will be elected on the same time schedule as the three from the campus.



Dr. Rudd presented a recommendation for the Senate Council that the procedure _
for election of the three faculty members as outlined in the circularization to the {‘
faculty of April 4, 1968 be approved with the following modifications: “





l .
that the Senators include both the first and last name or initials of the d"
f persons for whom they are voting to avoid the confusion of last names; i

that the Senators vote for no more or no less than four and six nominees, l‘
respectively, to avoid weight in voting;

that only elected members of the University Senate be eligible to vote in the ‘5;
nomination; .

, On that no nominating speeches be allowed in the interest of economy of time;

that = that the Chairman of the Senate Council check with each of the nominees to
es at determine that he is both available and willing to serve if nominated before ‘
f the six names are placed on the list for circulation in the final election process; X,
fdflrfi that if any of the six or more is unwilling or unavailable to serve, the Council

ballot as a replacement;

6. The three (3) nominees receiving the highest number of votes shall be
recommended to the Governor for appointment to the Faculty—Board Committee.

The Chairman appointed the following ad hoc Committee to count the ballots:

Elbert W. Ockerman, Chairman
Nicholas J. Pisacano

Ralph E. Wiseman

M. Keith Marshall

The Senators proceeded to vote for four nominees on the first ballot.

During the counting of the first ballot the Chairman proceeded with other business
on the agenda as follows:

Dr. Michael Adelstein, Chairman of the University Senate Advisory Committee on
Student Affairs, presented the following annual report of that Committee:

The Committee is working on a Student Rights Bill which will supple—
ment last year's report on the non—academic relationships between students
and the University (known as The Student Code). To date, the committee
has completed work on Section I, Right of Admission and Access, which
includes the admissions policy, scholarships and grants—in—aid, use of
facilities and services, and access to community places and services;
Section II, Rights in the Classroom which contains statements about
course content, standards, and procedures, and contrary opinion and
academic evaluation; Section III, Right of Privacy, which deals with this
right on premises controlled by the University, records (disciplinary,
counseling, and academic), and evaluation of character; and Section IV,
Right to Speak and Be Informed, which concerns the student's freedom to
speak, to hear speakers from outside the University, and to read a free
student press. The committee has planned to discuss its report at the
September meeting of the University Senate but may have to delay pre—
senting it in deference to a new University President.

In the absence of Dr. Griffin, Director of the Officeifix International Education
Programs, Dr. Hochstrasser, a member of the Senate Advisory Committee for International
Education Programs, recommended that the Report, which had been circulated to the
faculty under date of April 1, 1968, be accepted and incorporated in the minutes of
the UniverSity Senate. The Senate approved this recommendation. The Report as

circulated follows:

At the time the Office for International Education Programs was established
in March, 1967, the University Senate nominated an Advisory Committee on Inter—
national Education Programs. Dr. Albright's charge to this committee included
the following functions:

1. To identify those programs and activities which seem most promising
in international education to the objectives of the University

2. To formulate general policies for these programs that will serve as
guidelines for their initiation, operation and administration

3. To assess periodically the activities, programs and policies for the
purpose of improvement, development and effectiveness, and, in any
instance, discontinuance

4. To make recommendations resulting from the performance of

the above functions to the Provost. fig,
During 1967—68 ten faculty members have served on the Advisory Committee: 3'
Harry B. Barnard William Jansen
Richard Butwell Clark Keating (in Walter Langlois' absemg
William Chambliss Walter Langlois
Stuart Forth Harry Schwarzweller
Donald L. Hochstrasser Robert Sedler

Timothy Taylor.
As director of the Office, I have served as committee chairman.

The Advisory Committee has met approximately once a month, and has
shown more interest in its work than any committee with which I have worked.
In fact, on several occasions committee members have suggested that it
would be valuable to meet more often. All members have both interest and .
experience in international education, and the quality of discussion has .W‘
been challenging. Several committee members have volunteered to do
additional preparatory work for the committee meetings. From time to time
they have suggested that other faculty members or representatives of the r
administration be invited to meet with them; President Oswald, Dr. Albright
and Dean Cochran have been asked to do so to discuss in some depth the scope
of future University international programming.

In general terms, the committee has assisted the staff of the Office in
the formulation of a long—range strategy for change and development in the
international dimension of the University's programs. Problem areas explored /
with the committee have included the general studies program, the curricula of
the professional schools, programs for foreign students exchange and study
abroad programs, international development projects, and cooperation in
international studies with other universities and colleges in Kentucky.

It seems to me that the best way to report to you on the committee's
work would be to summarize this Office's objectives and functions and the
programs in which I and my staff are now involved, as well as to comment
briefly on several projected activities.


Let me first comment on the rationale for an office like this one.
The term "university” implies a universal approach to knowledge: therefore,
in one sense, the term ”international education" is a redundancy——education in
a university should automatically include an international dimension. To
the extent that this is not true in a given university, the educating efforts
of that university are partial——incomplete, distorted and provincial.

While the international implications of university education have always .
existed, they take on critical importance in the increasingly interrelated, ,
interdependent, interacting world of today. In a very real and direct sense,
solutions to the world problems of today and tomorrow require citizens and
leaders sophisticated in world affairs and trained to think and behave cross— 5&3!
culturally. The university which fails to face up fully to this priority ‘st
responsibility today may be accused of following an irresponsible path which '
has dangerous implications for the society of which it is a part.

The international dimension of a university should be a naturally






Minutes of the University Senate, April 8, 1968


integrated part of the teaching, research and service programs; it should not
be an appendage which is separately administered, financed largely by out—

side funds and staffed by persons not otherwise integrally a part of the

total program. Ideally, there should be no need for a special office for
international programs——they should be planned, initiated, coordinated and
evaluated by those offices charged with these responsibilities for all programs.

However, due to the persistent provincialism of U.S. education,
universities and other educational agencies have established special
to provide leadership for the correction of this critical flaw. The
of these offices should be judged in part, however, by the extent to


ideas for change are taken over by other units of the university and the
rapidity with which the need for the office disappears or becomes minimal.

Our Office's general role includes stimulation, coordination, and
assistance in the growth of international content and a commitment to
international education in the programs of all the units of the University——
the teaching departments, the colleges, the administration, the research
and extension programs, and special agencies which have an international
interest, such as the Center for Developmental Change.

In specific terms, most of the activities in which we are involved
can be subsumed under the following headings:

l. Gathering and Disseminating Information and Counseling with
Faculty and Students. The Office performs a clearinghouse role
in collecting, organizing and distributing information on inter—
national education opportunities and programs, including those
sponsored by other colleges and universities, private organizations,
governmental and other agencies. I serve as Faculty Fulbright
Advisor, as well as on—campus representative for other private and
university programs. Beginning in the fall, a newsletter will be
published for distribution here and at other institutions,
describing the University's international programs and opportunities
for overseas study and research. Surveys of the international
activities at other universities have been conducted, in addition
to studies of mutual problems (i.e., how are overseas graduate and
undergraduate study programs financed and administered?).


2. Survey of Faculty and Students. In cooperation with the Office
for Institutional Studies, a survey instrument has been prepared
to study faculty international experience and faculty interest
in broadening and deepening the international content of the
University's curriculum and related activities. Also in preparation
is a study of student awareness of other cultures and of student
ideas about the international education dimension of the University
curriculum and on— and off—campus activities.


3. Committee Study of Foreign Students Program. Under the chair—
manship of two members of the Advisory Committee, Dr. Jansen

and Dr. Chambliss, a subcommittee made up of eleven members*

of the faculty and administration is in the process of reviewing
the University's programs for foreign students, beginning with the

question of our purposes in admitting foreign students and going

on to a study of our responsibilities to them in terms of curricula,
housing, financial assistance, advising, and of ways in which their
presence can contribute to the education of American students and
the community. Among the recommendations of the Foreign Students
Committee will be an orientation and English language program-—

an example of the type of activity in which the Office will be
cooperating with other units of the University. In response to

a request from the College of Engineering, a survey of engineering
curricula for foreign students at some thirty—five universities

has been carried out; this report has also been used by the Foreign
Students Committee in preparing its recommendations, which will be
presented to the University community near the end of this semester.

4. Associations with Foreign Universities. Negotiations are underway
for the gradual implementation of a univerisity—wide exchange program
with the University of Montpellier——to involve faculty exchange,
cooperative research, and graduate and undergraduate study.
Advancement of this association is temporarily delayed because of
a change in the Rectorship of the University of Montpellier. Under
the chairmanship of another member of the Advisory Committee, Dr.
Clark Keating, a subcommittee* has been reviewing the University's
exchange program with the Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico.
The committee has recommended that the University continue its
program of exchange, with some modifications which would increase its
contribution to both universities' programs. In addition, the
committee is exploring other avenues for UniverSity of Kentucky
participation in Latin America, particularly ones which would include
faculty exchange and faculty and graduate student research components.


5. Curriculum Analysis. With the assistance of deans and department
heads, the Office has initiated a study of the international or
cross—cultural curricular offerings at the University, beginning with

an analysis of the general studies requirements and of the international
content of the coursework a representative sample of students has taken.

It is hoped that the results of this study will indicate those changes

in the general studies program which may be necessary to assure that

every student has an opportunity to

——~understand the culture concept as exemplified by his own and other
world cultures

———study at least one culture other than his own in depth

———appreciate his own culture through the eyes of scholars rooted in
other cultures

———study ideas, practices and problems of other cultures as well as his
own in general education courses in the sciences, social sciences,
humanities, arts, etc.

———learn a foreign language sufficiently well to be able to read and
appreciate the literary and scholarly works of another culture.

6. Cooperation with the Professional Schools. In several of the

professional colleges of the University, committees have been estab—
lished by the deans to examine the present international resources

of the colleges in terms of faculty and student interest, expertise,
and experience; to project the development of international programs
in line with the college's interests and concerns; and to make
recommendations for possible changes in faculty recruitment policy,
courses, and college resources. A guide has been prepared to provide
coordination among colleges in planning.

7. Cooperation with Kentucky Colleges, Universities and School Systems.
During the next year the Office will explore possibilities for cooperation
and coordination of resources and programs with colleges and universities
in the State and will propose cooperation with them in programs of service
to Kentucky schools for improved teaching of languages and international

8. Consortium Study. With active participation by several members of
the Advisory Committee, the Office has initiated a study of possible
University of Kentucky membership in a consortium of universities
(probably outside Kentucky) for cooperation in international education,
either on specific projects or in terms of general programming.

9. International Development Programs. The Office is working with
the Center for Developmental Change in assisting professional
schools (for example, the College of Agriculture) in enlarging
the international education dimension of overseas development


10. Cooperation with Organizations outside the University.

a. Kentucky Alliance Partners—~I and several faculty members who
have a professional interest in Latin America are working with
the Kentucky Partners of the Alliance Committee (based in
Louisville and composed of professional, business and state
government representatives) in shaping the State's "partnership"
program with Ecuador. At the request of the Partners of the
Alliance Committee, the Office is making recommendations on
feasible directions for educational exchange and other educational
activities. -

b. Experiment in International Livingf—As campus representative
for the Experiment program and in cooperation with the Central
Kentucky Council on International Living, the Office hosts visiting
foreign Experimenters, and is working with a student committee in
sponsoring and publicizing opportunities for student travel and


study abroad.
c. Education and World Affairs——With the assistance of EWA we are

examining and making suggestions for improved international education
in professional school programs. I serve on a national EWA committee
for directors of university international programs.

d. World Campus Afloat—~Although, after extensive discussion and
investigation of the program, a decision was made not to join the
World Campus Afloat Association of colleges and universities across
the country, the Office is keeping in touch with the program and
will encourage those students for whom it would be appropriate to

e. Other Organizations——The Office has worked with other organizations
outside the university in programming foreign visitors and scholars {a
(University of Wisconsin, Institute of International Education) fi§g§
and publicizing study, teaching and research programs (Marshall “‘
Fellowships, National Science Foundation, etc.). While the
individual departments and colleges should take the major respon—
sibility for hosting foreign visitors and foreign scholars, the
Office is glad to assist when possible.


If this Office is to function effectively as a source of support, advice,
and assistance in developing international programs in various units of the
University, close cooperation with deans, department heads, faculty and
students is necessary. Particularly since we are functioning with a small
staff, the programs which we mount depend on the cooperation and interest of ,
other departments. But even if we had a larger staff and budget, it would a
still be appropriate for us to rely heavily on the cooperation of other cgfi
parts of the University. As I said earlier we are a stimulating, coordinating,
and assisting agency, and part of our role will diminish as the departments,
colleges and other units themselves assume initiating and coordinating functions P

I want to express my appreciation for their interest and support to the
members of the Advisory Committee and to the Faculty who have served on i
the subcommittees on our foreign students programs and the University's programs ;
in Latin America. We invite questions or suggestions on our objectives and the
means we are using to achieve them.

Dr. Thomas R. Ford, Chairman of the Senate Advisory Committee on the Center for

Developmental Change, presented a report of that Committee which was handed to each
Senator present, and recommended its acceptance. The Senate approved the acceptance
of the report and its incorporation in these minutes.


The first Senate Advisory Committee on the Center for Developmental ,,
Change was appointed by President Oswald in October of 1967 to assume its I
functions in the calendar year 1968. The task of this Committee as set ‘
forth in the letter of appointment is "to advise with the staff of CDC .
in their determination of policy and in the planning of the Center's programs,
bringing faculty perspective to bear on these matters.” Subsequent to its ;
activation, the Advisory Committee in consultation with the administrative
staff of CDC expanded its statement of mission as follows:

The Center for Developmental Change (CDC) is a special multidis-

ciplinary unit of the University designed to enlarge understanding

and extend application of the processes of goal—directed change. ,
The mission of the Senate Advisory Committee is a dual one. In its :
advisory capacity, the Committee meets periodically with the staff
of CDC to review past and current activities and to provide counsel
on matters of general policy and program planning. As a representative fig!
body of the Senate, the Committee reports regularly to the Senate on i
the policies and programs of CDC and may formulate for Senate con—
sideration recommendations relating to CDC operations where Senate
policy is deemed necessary or desirable.





Minutes of the University Senate, April 8, 1968

The Senate Advisory Committee met with the administrative staff of
CDC on January 31, February 19, and March 15 of the current year. At the
first meeting of the Committee, the CDC staff reviewed its purpose,
structure, functions, programs, and activities. The other two meetings
were devoted to discussions of specific aspects of CDC's operations.

The Senate Advisory Committee is impressed with the potential of CDC
for contributing through multidisciplinary studies to our understanding of
planned change at various levels of social organization both in the United
States and in foreign areas. The Committee is equally impressed by the number
and scope of activities which have already been undertaken by this new unit
of the University. There is some considerable evidence, however, that the
purpose and functions of the Center for Developmental Change are not well
understood either within or outside the University community. The Advisory
Committee feels an obligation to assist the Center to further such an
understanding. As an initial step, it has requested the Center to prepare
a report of its purpose, functions, and program activities to be appended
to this report of the Senate Advisory Committee.
