       E. Resolution on Election of Alumni Member of the Board of
Trustees i

       Mr. Peterson and Board member, Dr. Ralph J. Angelucci, present-
ed a resolution concerning election of an alumni member to the Board of
Trustees, Dr. Angelucci stated that the present method was somewhat
cumbersome, involved and expensive. He submitted a sample official
ballot for use. The Board was advised that a committee had studied the
problem and the following resolution was recommended.


                          RESOLUTION

      WHEREAS, Kentucky Revised Statutes Section 164. 140 authorized
      the Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky to prescribe
      rules and regulations for the nomination of alumni members to
      be appointed to the Board of Trustees, and

      WHEREAS, the use of a simplified ballot with which the biograph-
      ical sketches of nominees can be consolidated, will reduce the
      expense and difficulty in mailing ballots, and

      WHEREAS, it is desirable for these rules to be revised to per-
      mit the simplified balloting,

      Now, therefore, be it resolved that the following rules and regu-
      lations, as revised, shall govern the nomination of alumni
      members to be appointed to the Board of Trustees:

            1 At a regular called meeting held not later than
               September 20, the Executive Committee of the Uni-
               versity of Kentucky Alumni Association shall nom-
               inate, from the alumni of the University, six persons
               who are qualified under the law for appointment to
               the University Board of Trustees,




 





10



2. When the names of these six nominees have been cer-
   tified by the Secretary of the Association to the Secre-
   tary of the University Board of Trustees, they shall
   be arranged alphabetically and placed upon a ballot.
   Following the names there shall be three blank lines,
   and opposite each name and blank there shall be a
   square.

3. The ballots, so prepared, shall be mailed not later
   than November 1 to those entitled to vote as their
   addresses shall appear in the files of the Alumni
   Office. With each ballot there shall be sent:

     (a) A short biography of each candidate, which
         may contain, among other things, the date
         of the candidate' s birth, his present and past
         occupations, and any public service which he
         has rendered.

     (b) Necessary instructions for voting, including
         the number of persons to be voted for, and the
         method of marking and mailing the ballot.

     (c) There also may be included other information
        or material of general interest to the alumni.

4. No person shall receive a duplicate ballot unless upon
  satisfactory representation to the Secretary of the Board
  that his ballot has been lost or otherwise destroyed. No
  person shall be permitted to vote otherwise than by
  ballot.

5. The vote shall be cast by making a cross in the square
  opposite the names of the persons to be voted for, and
  mailing or delivering to the Secretary of the Board of
  Trustees.

6. Each graduate may vote for not more than three persons.
  He may vote for any of the persons listed on the ballot
  by making a cross in the square opposite the name, or
  for any other qualified graduate of the University of
  Kentucky by writing in the name and making a cross in
  the square opposite the written name. If more than
  three persons are voted for on any ballot, it shall not be
  counted.

7. Any ballot, to be counted, must be in the office of the
  Secretary of the Board of Trustees not later than noon
  of the day preceding the December meeting of the Board,
  and no ballot received after that time shall be counted.




 





11



            8. The ballots shall be publicly assembled during a
               meeting of the Board of Trustees, or the Executive
               Committee of the Board, and counted by an election
               committee consisting of the Secretary of the Board,
               the Secretary of the Alumni Association (or their
               designated representatives) and one other person
               agreed upon by them, in the presence of such per-
               sons as may desire to be present.

            9, The Secretary of th.e Board shall certify to the
               Governor the names of three persons receiving the
               largest number of votes, from which the Governor
               may make appointment in accordance with the law.

            10. Any details of the election not covered in the Ken-
               tucky Statutes or in these regulations shall be
               decided upon by the Election Committee named
               above.

       Members being advised, upon motion duly made, seconded and car-
ried, the Resolution was adopted and authorized spread upon the minutes,
to be made effective at once.



       F. University of Kentucky-Ashland Center Established.

       A delegation from the City of Ashland representing the Ashland
Junior College were invited to meet with the Board. They renewed their
request that the University of Kentucky lease the property from the Ash-
land Board of Education for the purpose of conducting a two-year college
program at Ashland,  They presented the lease-agreement which had
been prepared by the Ashland and University attorneys, with the approval
of President Dickey and Vice President Peterson.  The agreement was
read.


THIS AGREEMENT between the BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE UNIVERSITY
OF KENTUCKY, a statutory corporation under the laws of Kentucky, herein
called UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, of Lexington, Kentucky, and the
BOARD OF EDUCATION OF THE CITY OF ASHLAND, an independent school
district under the laws of Kentucky, of Ashland, Kentucky, herein called
the BOARD OF EDUCATION, witnesses:

      WHEREAS, the University of Kentucky and the Board of Education
have the following responsibilities.

                                 I

      The University of Kentucky, under Kentucky Revised Statutes 164. 100
to 164. 286, has the duty of maintaining undergraduate and postgraduate work,
embracing instruction as well as research such as is done in other institu-
tions of corresponding rank,




 





12



                                 II

       The Board of Education, under Kentucky Revised Statutes 165. 010,
and 165. 210 to 165. 250, has the duty to promote public education by main-
taining a junior college, as a part of the public school system, in which
principal work is the maintenance of courses affording instruction in such
arts, sciences, and professions and conferring such certificates of attain-
ment as are authorized by other similar institutions of learning above
high school grade; and which college is supported in part by funds raised
by municipal taxation levied for the purpose of establishing, acquiring,
and operating the college.

                                 III

       Under the above legislative statutes, the University of Kentucky
and the Board of Education have mutual responsibilities to provide young
people of the Ashland area with two years of college opportunity.  The
University of Kentucky is now doing this by resident work at Lexington
and the Board of Education is doing it by resident work in Ashland.

       NOW, THEREFORE, in order to accomplish their mutual responsi-
bilities by a single program, the parties agree as follows:

       1. The Ashland Junior College is hereby recognized as the Ashland
center of the University of Kentucky.

       2. The University of Kentucky will provide a program, including
courses of study and administration, to meet the responsibilities of both
parties, The work shall include the same as at the University of Kentucky,
in Lexington, and the students shall be entitled to the same credits from
the University of Kentucky; and the courses and administration shall be
such as to meet the responsibilities of the Board of Education to maintain
a mntmicipal junior college, The parties may also agree from time to time
about special courses of local interest, including terminal courses.

       3. The Board of Education will provide the buildings, including
land, equipment, and other facilities to the extent of the present junior
college property and such additional, as may be needed, as it can procure
from the proceeds of the junior college tax, In planning and providing
such buildings, land, equipment, and facilities, the Board of Education
will request the University of Kentucky to make recommendations, pursuant
to its standards, and the Board of Education will not unreasonably withhold
its agreement with such recommendations.  All other expenses, including
teacher salaries, will be paid by the University of Kentucky, for which
purpose it may use the tuition and other fees.

       4. The Board of Education may terminate this Agreement at any
time, upon written notice, in the event there is a failure to accomplish
its responsibilities, for r.nainta.ning a junior college under the above
statutes; it being understood, however, that nothing herein shall be con-
strued as an agreement: upon the part of either party to any act or omission
which would unlawfully limit said party s power to perform its legal
duties.




 





13



      5. This Agreement shall become effective July 1, 1957, and shall
continue until terminated by the parties. Subject to the provisions of
paragraph 4, the Agreement may be terminated, or amended and changed
in whole or in part, by mutual agreement of both parties; provided
written notice is given at least one year prior to the beginning date of any
fiscal year.

      IN WITNESS OF WHICH, the Board of Trustees of the University
of Kentucky and the Board of Education of the City of Ashland have caused
their names to be subscribed and their seals to be affixed hereto, this
the     11      day of June, 1957.

Chairman



      The Board being advised, upon motion duly made, seconded and carried
the agreement was authorized executed on behalf of the University of Kentucky,
and the University of Kentucky-Ashland Center was established as of July 1,
1957, with the understanding that the University would pick up the program as
speedily as possible, and that the Ashland Junior College board would continue
such programs as are now in existence so as to make an orderly transfer
of programs.

      Members of the delegation were invited to have luncheon with the
Board of Trustees,



      G. Harlan County Center Established at Cumberland, KL.

      President Dickey had previously appointed a University committee
to study the sites available for the University Center in Southeastern




 





14



Kentucky. He stated that the committee had made a report of their visits
to all sites offered. President Dickey read the report.



                                         T
                                         June 11, 1957



      Dear President Dickey.

      The University Committee on the Site for the University Center in
      Southeastern Kentucky desires to report on its work.

      Some twelve sites in or near Harlan and in or near Cumberland
      have been inspected and written information from responsible groups
      in these two communities has been gathered. In examining these
      sites the committee used certain criteria including the following:

            1o Site Ad adequacy for present plant and program and for
               ArTe development

            2. Accessibility Ad easily reached, absence of hazardous
               approaches, proximity to main arterial roads

            3. Physical features -- terrain, drainage, surroundings
               such as adjoining land and buildings, natural beauty
               and appeal

            4. Population -- total resident population and high school
               enrollments within 15-25-35 mile road distances

            5. Proximity to and availability of public services -- water,
               sewage disposal, electricity, health, law enforcement,
               and others

            6. Community support -- active interest of public and civic
               agencies, financial provisions, faculty housing, industri-
               al and professional support, newspaper and radio facil-
               ities,

      After the inspection visits to available sites the Committee made
      "bird? s eye" photographs, prepared written descriptions of the main
      site characteristics, drew maps of surrounding areas with the loca-
      tion of communities and high schools with road distances, and com-
      piled high school statistics and population figures. (See attached
      material,)

      The Committee then narrowed the selection to two sites: one known
      as the Skidmore Site at Grays s Knob located three miles from the
      city of Harlan and the other known as the Cloverlick Site near the
      City of Cumberland.




 





15



At this point the Committee prepared, with legal advice, a data
form calling for written information from the Harlan Committee
formed by order of the Harlan County Fiscal Court and from the
Trin-City Improvement Association at Cumberland. These two
local groups submitted the requested information to the Site
Committee.

Upon careful review and study of the data and in light of the cri-
teria the Committee made the following analysis:

     1 The size of the site should be a minimum of thirty-
        five to forty acres. Both sites qualify in this re-
        spect,  The Skidmore Site has thirty.five acres
        available at present, At Cumberland 250 acres
        are reported to be available to the University.

     20 The Harlan Committee proposes to purchase the thirty-
        five acres at Gray, s Knob for $115, 000. 00 for transfe
