great pleasure to read the following tribute to Dean Shaver who would soon assume

nent Division in the Office of Business Affairs:

          Dean Shatter, it is a pleasure for me to express, on behalf of the
     University Trustees, our sincerest appreciation for your long and. ef-
     fective service to the College of Engineering.

          Over a 35-year period - as a professor, as a department chairmarn,
     and as dean - you have made noteworthy contributions to this i.ns'.i-
     tution. Your valued service has added immeasurably to the prestige not
     only of the College of Engineering but of the entire University.

          Particularly during the last 10 years, a period which coincides
     almost exactly with your tenure as dean, this nation has looked to the




     engineering profession for the scientific and technical advances that
     are essential to our existence in the Space Age. Thanks in great
     measure to you, the College of Engineering has played an important
     role in supplying the know-how and the skilled manpower that are
     requisite to this nation's security and continuing progress.

         A t me-proved yardstick for measuring the effectiveness of any
     educational institution is the performance of its graduates. I know
     that a source of deep pride to you, as it is for this Board of Trustees,
     is the high quality of professional service that is being rendered to
     state and nation today by your College of Engineering graduates.

          As vyou enter upon a new area of service to the University - one
     for whichI yoil are uniquely qualified - this Board extends sincere
     thanks for your past contrib-ations and looks forward with complete
     confidence to your performance of new and equally responsible duties.

     H. Dr. Robert M. Drake, Jr. Named Dean of the College of Engineering (PR 4a)

     Dr. Albright, who had returned from Frankfort, indicated his great pleasure
in recommending to the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees the appoint-
ment of Dr. Robert M. Drake, Jr. as Dean of the College of Engineering, effective
September !, l996. H-fe indicated that this recommendation carried the whole..
hearted endorsement of President Oswald and the faculty of the College of Engi-
neering. The Faculty Search Committee which Dr. Oswald had appointed to seek a
replacement for Dean Shaver had set up certain criteria which are given in PR 4a
attached, and had then carefully screened 40 candidates out of a list of approximately
70 namnes submitted to themn. This screening process resulted in a small number of
namnes of eminent persons in the engineering field who satisfied the criteria and
among these few names was that of a member of the faculty of the College of Engi-
neering at the University of Kentucky--Dr. Robert M. Drake, Jr. This recom-
mendation carries the unanimous support of the Search Committee.

      On motior duily made, seconded, and carried the recommendation that Dr.
Drake be named Dear. of the College of Engineering, effective September 1, 1966,
wvas approved ilnanimolusly.

      D-. Drake was called in to the meeting and Dr. Angelucci informed him of his
appointment and expressed the gratification of the Executive Committee that he was
to assume the leadership of the College of Engineering and said that the Board of
Trustees had utmost confidence in his ability to develop a program, particularly at
the grdduate level, which would place the College of Engineering at the University
of Kentucky .n the forefront of the engineering colleges of the nation. (See PR 4a
at the end of the Minutes. )



     I. Dr. Lewis Cochran Named Acting Dean of the Graduate School (PR 4b)

     Inasmuch as the departure of Dean Kirwan is imminent and inasmuch as the
Search Committee appointed to seek his replacement as Dean of the Graduate School
will require time to perform its function properly, Dr. Albright requested that the
appointment of Dr. Lewis Cochran as Acting Dean of the Graduate School be af-
firmed effective September 1, 1966. He added the affirmation of Dr. Cochran as
Acting Dean would provide experienced continuity and would insure leadership in
this period for the further development of graduate education in the University.

     Upon motion duly made, seconded, and carried, Dr. Lewis Cochran's appoint-
ment as Acting Dean of the Graduate School, effective September 1, 1966, was af-
firmed with the understanding that he would continue to carry the responsibilities of
Provost. (See PR 4b at the end of the Minutes. )

     J. Dr. Roscoe D. Kelley Named Director of Somerset Community College
(PR 4c)

     Dr. Albright said that he had one further administrative appointment to recom-
mend--that of Dr. Roscoe D. Kelley as Director of the Somerset Community College,
effective by agreement upon the earliest terminal date of his present employment.
He added that the Community College System was fortunate to have been able to ob-
tain the services of a person with the background and experience which Dr. Kelley
has to head up the Somerset Community College.

     On notion duly made, seconded, and carried, the appointment of Dr. Roscoe
D. Kelley as Director of the Somerset Community College was approved. (See PR 4c
at the end of the Minutes. )

the splendid accreditation report received by the School of Architecture. (See PR 9
at the end of the Minutes. )

     P. Report on Research Developments (PR 10)

     Dr. Bard called attention to PR 10, Extramural Awards Received During 1965-
66 in Support of Research, Training and Related Activities. He explained that the
total awards amounted to $10, 348, 437. 62 and then pointed out the breakdown of these
awards according to University units, and according to supporting agencies.

     Dr. Bard indicated that research activities show an increase in interdiscipli-
nary or "team" type of operation, such as the Center for Developmental Change, the
Tobacco and Health Research Project. There is also increased interest and support
of training for service programs, such as the Peace Corps, Head Start, etc. Ad-
ministrative responsibility in connection with research has become markedly greater
since much of the money to support research now comes from Federal grants.

     In answer to a question, Dr. Bard replied that the University of Kentucky has
a research program comparable with institutions of similar size and is favorably
positioned with even larger institutions.

     Dr. Angelucci thanked Dr. Bard for his informative report and commended
the University of Kentucky Research Foundation for the excellent program which it
has developed. (See PR 10 at the end of the Minutes. )

which will be concerned with the outlook for the liberal arts both in the university

before the meeting, called for a motion for adjournment. On motion duly made,
seconded and carried, the meeting was declared officially adjourned at 2:45 p. m.

                                                Respectfully submitted,

                         PRESIDENT'S REPORT TO THE TRUSTEES

                                   August 19, 1966


     The Herman L. Donovan Senior Citizens Fellowship Program, which was
inaugurated by the University in 1964 to provide free classroom instruction
to any interested person 65 years of age or older, has produced its first
graduate. She is Mrs. Amanda Newell Hicks of Midway, who recently completed
requirements for a degree in elementary education.

     Mrs. Hicks, who for some years has been a teacher at Sayre School in
Lexington, plans to continue her studies under the Donovan program. She is
one of approximately 200 who have taken advantage of the opportunity for
free study.

     The Donovan program, which is directed by Dr.e Earl Kauffman, continues
to attract wide attention. The August 12 issue of Time Magazine contains a
report on the program, emphasizing the enthusiasm which the participants
demonstrate for their work. A similar article on the Donovan program, which
appeared in The National Observer in April, brought inquiries from persons
in 13 other states, including a candidate for governor and a state legislator
who wished to copy the program in their states.


     A new associate-degree program in respiratory therapy is being offered
in the University's Lexington Technical Institute. Students now are being
enrolled in the program, which calls for approximately one year of general
education courses and another year of technical courses. The student who
successfully completes the two-year program is awarded the degree of Associate
in Applied Science,

     Openings still exist in the Institute's technical programs in mechanical
and electrical engineering. Enrollment is closed, however, for two other
associate degree programs, nursing and dental laboratory technology.

     Students in the College of Education who plan to become guidance counselors
now are using video tape for a more effective analysis of their practice counseling.
In the same way that athletes learn to correct mistakes by watching films of
their own performance, so do the counseling students observe the strengths and
weaknesses of their technique in conducting interviews, Use of the video tapes
was initiated this summer in a project headed by Dr, Car M. Foster, who says
they appear to be considerably more effective as teaching aids than the sound-
