by the President of the University to act as the
Faculty Advisor of the Student Government Association.

to. Mr. George Lawson, President of the Student Government Association made

the statement that he felt better student-faculty relations would result if

the three members were appointed and present at all Student Government meetings.
one of which would also serve as the Faculty Advisor. The names of Dean A. D.
Kirwan, Dr. Lee Townsend and ProfessOr J. S. Horine were placed in nomination
and approved as the three nonevoting faculty members to the Student Government

was tabled by the Faculty.

Dr. William S. Ward, Chairman of the Faculty Committee on Planning and Policy,
an interim report for the Committee as follows:

The University Faculty Committee on Planning and Policy wishes to
place before the University Faculty for action the following interim
report and recommendations. A further report will be made at a later

As a preamble to the recommendations that follow the Committee
wishes to make two observations: (1) that it is in process of ex-
ploring precisely what its purpose and funcftion is: (2) that it will
welcome enlightenment, advice, and suggestibns on this score from the
Faculty as a whole or from any member of it. The reasons for this pre-
dicament are fairly simple: (1) the original purpose of the committee
(that of dealing with problems confronting the University immediately
following the war) expired four or five years ago; (2) the Faculty
while voting on two separate occasions to continue the committee after
its original purpose had been served did not indicate what the committee's
new duties should be; (3) no committee during this extension period
has filed a report with this Faculty. Thus the committee has neither
precedent nor instructions to guide it.

The Committee does know, of course, that it is expected to par—
ticipate somehow in charting the University's course; but how and in
what areas this is to be done it is not so sure. Should it, for
example, concern itself only with policies and plans to be formulated
in the future, or should it also examine existing policies and plans?
Should it concern itself only with bread administrative policy, or
Shauld it also concern itself with academic practices? Should it
concern itself only with whether a new college or new department
should be added, or should it concern itself also with whether the
quality of teaching, the amount of productive research, or the curri-
culum in each of the existing colleges and departments is what it
should be?

Questions like these could be multiplied several times over. and
still others of other sorts raised if we assume that the answers to
some of these questions are in the affirmative. Until such time as
the Committee has more wisdom than it has now, however. it limits
itself to two recommendations.

(1) The first of these concerns this enlarged Faculty and its
monthly meetings. Briefly; this Committee recommends that
beginning with the next regularly scheduled Faculty meeting
the President of the University or some other appropriate
person spend as much time as may seem necessary in explaining,










































Minutes 9.; the University Faculty, December 31, 1952

clarifying, or interpreting some phase of administrative

planning, policy, or action and in giving the Faculty an

opportunity to ask questions or participate in a discus—

sion. Random illustrations of matters that might thus

be brought before the Faculty are the building program

of the University, including some of the reasoning that lies
behind the priority given to different buildings; developments
that have a bearing upon the establishment of a School of
Medicine or a School of Veterinary Medicine; and so on.

(2) The other recommendation which the Committee wishes to make

is that the Friday Staff Bulletin. as frequently as may be

necessary, carry brief notes which are of interest to the

Faculty and staff alike. These may well be restricted to

factual matters, leaving more complex explanations to Uni—

versity Faculty meetings. For example, the Bulletin might

contain a progress report on the University's Social Security

appeal or a brief note which would give the notavery—well

known background for a particular Beard of Trustees action.

In making this recommendation the Committee feels that it is
touching upon one of the most difficult of all problems: that of
having every member of a large organization, be it an educational
or a business organization, understand that reasoning that lies behind
the decisions of those who are charged with administrative and execu-
tive responsibility. It may well be that these recommendations are
not the best of all possible recommendations, but we do believe that
in the absence of better ones they are worth a trial.

In the event that these recommendations meet the approval of this
Faculty and the administrative officers of the University, the Committee
on Planning and Policy

(1) recommends that the Chairman of this Faculty feel free to
lengthen the periOd of Faculty meetings whenever the demands
of this enlarged agenda require it;

(2) offers itself as the agency to receive suggestions and sub»
sequently to recommend to the Chairman of this Faculty an
agenda of matters to be explained and/or topics to be dis»
cussed, as outlined above;

(3) offers itself also as the agency to receive suggestions of
matters to which this Committee, the University Faculty.
and/or the administrative officers of the University should
give attention in charting the University's future.

If these preposals. in turn, are approved, the Committee requests
that it be authorized to make all of its recommendations impersonally
in the name of the Committee. It is further requested that written
communications bear the sender's name so that the Committee may, if
it finds it desirable to do so, secure fuller explanation or give to
the sender such relevant information as it may consider to be important.

Minutes 9; the University Faculty, DeCember g: 1952 995

The Faculty voted approval of the recommendations submitted by the Committee.

President Donovan stated that he had asked Dean Stahr to make a statement

to the Faculty on the present status of Social Security for the University Staff.

In his report Dean Stahr outlined the events which lead up to the University's

making an appeal against the ruling of the Federal Security Administration that

the University Staff was not eligible to participate in Social Security. He
stated that the Appeals Board had heard witnesses for the University and that
a decision probably would be rendered in the near future. The decision will
hinge upon whether the University's present change-of-work policy does or
does not constitute a retirement plan.

Vice Presi ent Chamberlain reviewed the history of the University's
changemofuwork and explained its provisions together with amendments that
have been made since the first plan was adopted.

President Donovan announced that he had received a letter from Mr. Ivan
Jett, Director of the Kentucky Chain Store Council, indicating that he and
Mr, W. E. Mortimer, Manager of the Kresge store in Lexington, were arranging
a dinner in honor of the teaching and research staff of the University. He
stated that invitations were to be issued for the evening of February 17 at
the Lafayette Hotel.

The FaCulty adjourned.
