tives present and there were approximately 40 students in attendance.


       A. Meeting Opened

       At 2:00 p. m. Mr. Clay, acting as chairman in the absence of Governor
Nunn, announced that the opening of the meeting would be delayed until a loud
speaker could be installed outside the Board Room. He explained that because
of the safety factor involved, it had been impossible to admit more than the
number of students already seated in the Board Room and the loud speaker was
being provided to permit the approximately 150 students outside to hear what was
going on in the meeting.

       At approximately 2:05 p. m. Mr. Clay called the meeting to order.
Governor Chandler gave the invocation and at the request of Mr. Clay, the oath
of office was administered by Mr. John Darsie to Mr. Steve Bright, President
of Student Government, who under statute would serve as the non-voting student
member of the Board of Trustees during his term of office.

       The secretary reported a quorum present and the meeting was declared
officially open for the conduct of business at 2:10 p. m.



       B. Minutes Approved

       On motion by Dr. Nicholas, seconded by Governor Chandler. and passed,
the reading of the Minutes of the April 7, 1970 meeting of the Board was dispensed
with and the Minutes were approved as published.




 










C. Change in Committee Appointment



       Mr. Clay said it had been brought to his attention that Dr. Nicholas was
presently serving on both the Medical Center Committee and the Fmnance Coen-
mittee and, inasmuch as these two committees meet simultaneously, Dr. Nicholas
had requested that he be replaced as a member of the Medical Center Committee.
Mr. Clay acceded to his request and named Mr. Thomas P. Bell to the Medical
Center Committee to replace Dr. Nicholas.


       D. Executive Committee and Officers of Board Elected

       After being recognized by the chairman, Dr. Nicholas made a motion that
the present Executive Committee be reappointed and that Mr. Albert Clay be
designated as chairman. The motion was seconded by Mr. Hillenmeyer and
passed with all present voting aye. The members of the Executive Committee for
1970-71 will be Mr. Albert G. Clay, chairman, Mrs. Rexford Blazer, Mr. Thomas
Bell, Mr. Richard Cooper and Mr. Robert Hillenmeyer.

       Mr. George Griffin nominated Mr. Albert Clay to serve as vice chairman
of the Board of Trustees and Mrs. Rexford Blazer to serve as secretary of the
Board (the secretary of the Board also serves as secretary of the Executive Com-
mittee). Mr. Cooper moved that the nominations be closed andthatMr. Clay and
Mrs. Blazer be elected by acclamation. His motion was seconded by Governor
Chandler and all present voted aye.


       E. Resolution on Timothy Futrell Adopted

       Mr. Clay noted that because Mr. Futreli, former non-voting student
member of the Board, had had to report for active duty at Fort Campbell on
Monday, May 4, it was not possible for him to be present at the meeting to hear
the resolution which had been drafted by a committee appointed at the April 7
meeting of the Board.

      Mr. Jesse NM. Alverson, chairman of the committee, read the resolution,
a copy of which is attached at the end of the Minutes. On motion by Mr. Alverson,
seconded by Dr. Sears, and passed, the resolution was adopted, ordered spread
upon the Minutes of the meeting, and a copy sent to Mr. Futrell. (See Resolution
at the end of the Minutes. )



    F. President's Report to the Trustees

      President Singletary started his report but, at this point, the noise made
by the students assembled outside the Board Room became so great that it was
impossible for him to be heard by those in the Board Room. He excused himself




 






3



and requested that the doors of the Board Room be closed  When he returned,
he indicated that he would not continue the report but recommended that the Board
members read it later since it contained reports on awards which students who
were doing those things which they came to the University to do, had received
during the past few weeks in recognition of their scholastic and leadership achieve-
ments.

       Mr. Clay accepted the report on behalf of the Board and ordered it filed.


       G. Recommendations of the President (PR 2)

       Because of the continuing disorderly conduct of those outside the room,
Dr. Singletary said he would not attempt to go over the items in PR 2 since the
Board members had already had occasion to examine it but would be glad to
answer any questions that might be raised.

       There being no questions, on motion by Mr. Hillenmeyer, seconded by
Mr. Wright, and passed, PR 2, Recommendations of the President, was approved
as a whole and ordered mnade an official part of the Minutes of the meeting. (See
PR 2 at the end of the Minutes. )


       H. Supplemental Recommendations of the President (PR 3)

       President Singletary, mentioning that PR 3 contained two items received
too late for inclusion in PR 2, called particular attention to the recommended
appointments of Mr. H. S. Beattie, Mr. Richard E. Cooper and Dr. Fred Zechman
to the Board of Directors of the University of Kentucky Research Foundation. Ap-
proval of these appointments by the Board of Trustees of the University is required
before they can be made. The other item in PR 3 was routine approval of appoint-
ments to the Graduate Faculty.

       On motion duly made, seconded, and carried, PR 3, Supplemental
Recommendations of the President, was approved as a whole and ordered made an
official part of the Minutes of the meeting. (See PR 3 at the end of the Minutes.



      I. Approval of Degree Candidates (PR 4)

      The May meeting is set by statute for the Tuesday before commencement
in order that candidates for degrees may receive approval from the Board. The
list of those applying for degrees to be conferred at the May 11 commencement
exercises was included as a part of PR 4.

      On motion made by Dr. Nicholas, seconded by Mr. Hillenmeyer, and
passed, the President was authorized to confer upon each individual whose name

appears on the list presented the degree to which he is entitled upon cecrt'f'cation
by the Dean of Admissions and Registrar that said individual has sa.isfactorily
completed all requirements for the degree for which he has made applihcatvn and
has been approved by the University Senate. (See PR 4 at the end of the NI nulites.)


       J. Fee Schedules ConfLrmed (PR 5"

       It was explained that under statutory authority the Council on Public Higher
Education sets the fee schedule for the :nstitut.ions of public higher education in
the Commonwealth. On April 17, 1970 this body established a schedule of fees to
become effective not later than the fall semester 1970, In order to establish these
fees at the University of Kentucky, confirmati.on is needed from the Board of
Trustees. It was pointed out that out-of-state fees had already been confirmed by
the Board and that the increase in resident fees amounted to $50 per academic
year. In the case of the community colleges., the fees were established at the
level of the regional universities, or $150 a semester as opposed to $165 on the
main campus.

       On motion by Mr. Wright, seconded by Dr. Nicholas, and passed, con-
firmation of the fee schedule for the University of Kentucky as established by the
Council on Public Higher Education was given and the effective date for the new
fees was set for the opening of the fall semester 1970. (See PR 5 at the end of
the Minutes.)


       K. Master Degree Programs Apprj~-ed (PR 6)

       Without discussion, on motion by Mr. Hillen.neyer, seconded by Mr.
Milner, and passed, approval was given to the activation of programs leading to
the Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Social Work Degrees. (See PR 6
at the end of the Minutes. )


       L. Internal Budget for 1970-71 Accepted (PR 7)

       Dr. Donald Clapp, Budget Director, explained that the budget before the
Trustees for approval was a continuation budget. It does, however, provide suf-
ficient funds to allow the University to strengthen some of the existing programs,
to initiate the new School of Social Professions. to provide salary increases to
help maintain the University's competitive position with similar institutions, to
meet the increased cost of maintaining the current fringe benefit program, to
establish a disability insurance program for those employees not currently pro-
tected, and t) operate and finance new facilities to meet critical space shortages.
Further discussion was curtailed because of the increased noise and disorder from
those outside the Board Room which made it difficult for Dr, Clapp to be heard
and for the Board members to follow his presentation. Explaining that the budget




 






                                                                         5


 had been in the hands of the Board prior to the meeting and, therefore, each
 member had had an opportunity to familiarize himself with the contents, Mr.
 Clay thanked Dr. Clapp and called for a motion.

       Governor Chandler moved that the 1970-71 operating budget as submitted,
including the authorizations set forth in the letter of transmittal, be approved and
ordered recorded as an integral part of the University's financial system with the
necessary fiscal control being exercised for the collection and appropriation of
income and for the expenditure of departmental appropriations in accordance with
authorized fiscal policies and procedures and accepted as a basis of mraximum
expenditures for the year 1970-71. The Board of Trustees or the Executive Com-
mittee is empowered to make such changes in the budget as may from time to time
be deemed necessary upon recommendation of the President. His motion was
seconded by Mr. Alverson, and passed without dissent. (See PR 7 at the end of
the Minutes. Note: The budget document is not made a part of the Minutes but is
on file in the official records of the meeting. )


       M. Meeting Dates for 1970-71 Established (PR 8)

       Without discussion, on motion by Mr. Hillenmeyer, seconded by Mrs.
Blazer, and passed, the dates given in PR 8 were established as official meeting
dates for the Board of Trustees and the Executive Committee for the 1970-71
fiscal year. (See PR 8 at the end of the Minutes.


       No Buildings Named (PR 9)

       Upon the recommendation of the Building and Campus Development Com-
mittee, and concurred in by the President, the Board of Trustees on motion duly
made, seconded, and carried, approved the designation of the Office Tower as the
Patterson Office Tower and the Office Classroom Building as the White Hall
Classroom Building. In addition, approval was given to the designation of three
buildings on the Prestonsburg Community College campus as the Johnson Admin-
istration Building, the Pike Technical B3uiLding, and the Martin Student Center.
The recommendation for so naming these buildings is set forth in PR 9, a copy of
which appears at the end of these Minutes. (See PR 9) at the end of the Minutes.


       0. Budget Revisions for 1.969-70 Approved (PR 10)

       On motion by Governor Chandler, seconded by Mr. Wright, and passed,
the budget revisions recommended in PR 10 were authorized and approved. (See
PR 10 at the end of the Minutes. )




 










       P. Financial Report Accepted (FCR 1)

       Mr. Hillenmeyer moved acceptance of the interim financial report for the
nine months' period :nding March 31, 1970. HiJ motion was seconded by IMAr.
Pence and, without dissent. it was so ordered. (See FCR 1 at the end of the
Minutes.  


       Q. Authorization Given to Proceed with Contracts on
Two Buildings (FCR 2)

       Mr. Hillenmeyer moved that the recommendation in FCR 2 relative to the
preparing of contract documents and to awarding contracts on the Health, Physical
Education and Recreation Building and the Laboratory - Office Facilities Building
be approved. His motion was seconded by Dr. Nicholas, and passed. (See FCR 2
at the end of the Minutes.


       R. Authoriza.tion Given to Dispose of Property (FCR 3)

       On motion duly made, seconded, and passed, property presently owned by
the University of Kentucky and known as Z70 South Limestone Street, Lexington, was
deemed no longer necessary for the purpose of the University and the Acting Vice
President--Business Affairs and Treasurer was authorized to take action neces-
sary to dispose of the property at a price not less than its fair market value as
determined by an independent appraiser. (See FCR 3 at the end of the Minutes.



       S. Clarifying Resolution Relating to Community College
Revenue Bonds Adopted

       Mr. Ruschell explained that in order to make it clear that the proceeds of
the Community Colleges Educational Buildings Revenue Bonds and Notes issued
in anticipation thereof may be expended for all appurtenances, structures, works
and faciliites which are necessary for the operation of the Community Colleges
Educational Buildings Project it was advisable that a resolution be adopted clari-
fying the original basic resolution adopted on May 6. 1969, providing for the
financing of the Community Colleges Project and that a further resolution be
adopted clarifying the resolution authorizing the Series A and the Series B Bonds
for such Project.

       Thereupon, Dr. Nicholas introduced, caused to be read and moved the
immediate adoption of a resolution entitled:

       The chairman then announced that the resolution had been duly adopted

       U. Revision of Governing Regulat:ons of 1960 Adopted

       The chairman requested Dr. Sears, chairman of the Joint Board-Faculty
Committee which had prepared the proposed revision of the Governing Regula-
tions, to make his presentation of the document, copies of which had been sent to
the Board members prior to the meeting.

       Dr. Sears indicated that the revision had been in process for approximately
five years and commended particularly Dr. Ralph Weaver for his work on the
document now before the Trustees. Dr. Sears then moved that the proposed
revision of the Governing Regulations of the University of Kentucky, Copy No. V,
dated May 1970, be amended to include an additional paragraph in Section XI. A,
page 42, said paragraph to read: "The student governments in both the University
and the Community College Systems will adhere to all rules and regulations adopted
by the Board of Trustees, ' and that it be adopted as the Governing Regulations of
the University of Kentucky, effective as of the date of its adoption. His motion
was seconded by Governor Chandler. In the discussion which followed, Mr. Bright
expressed his disappointment that recommended amendments submitted to the
committee and to the Board members by the three student members of the Uni-
versity Senate had not been included. He added that he recognized the need for
the adoption of the Governing Regulations at this time and expressed the strong
hope that the Board would be more responsive to the need for student involvement
in the governance of the University next fall than they have been to date.

       Mr. Clay thanked Mr. Bright for his comments and called for a vote on the
motion before the Board. All voting members voted "aye" and the two non-voting
faculty members indicated their concurrence. (See document at the end of the
Minutes.


       V. Revision of Student Code Adopted

       Mr. Clay apologized for the increasing disruption of the meeting caused by
the disorderly conduct of the students outside the Board Room. At this point Mr.
Bright was asked to speak with these students in an attempt to restore some
semblance of order.



Mr. George Griffin, chairman of the Committee on the Revision of the




 






10



Student Code, apologized for not providing copies of the revised document to
members prior to the Board meeting but explained this had been impossible
because of the limited time between the receipt of the recommended revisions
and the meeting on May 5. He said that the committee met three times and
held one open hearing for students and faculty members to present their views.
'The revisions considered by the committee were submited by Student Govern-
ment, the University Senate, and the Student Affairs Office, and carried the
President's recommendations. The committee believes that the proposed
revision is an improvement on the Code in effect and recommends its adoption,
and Mr. Griffin so moved. His motion was seconded by Mr. Hillenmeyer, In
order to provide Mr. Bright an opportunity to discuss the Student Code, vote on
the motion was delayed until his return.

       As a second part of his motion, Mr. Griffin said he wished to recommend
that the Student Code Revision Committee be made a Standing Committee and that
proposed changes be presented to the committee no later than January 30, to
permit the committee to give thorough study to the changes prior to recommend-
ing action t6 the Board of Trustees. Mr. Hillenmeyer concurred in the addition
of this recommendation to the original motion.

       The interim period was used to hear a report from Governor Chandler,
chairman of the Medical Center Committee. Governor Chandler said his com-
mittee had met that morning and received a report submitted by the team which
visited the University Hospital in the spring for evaluation purposes, which report
rated the University Hospital very high.

       Mr. Bright, having returned to the meeting, was asked for his comments
on the proposed revision of the Student Code. He commended the committee for
holding the open hearings and for removing the section on academic affairs from
the Code. He continued that the document was oppressive, that the judicial system
was left without flexibility, that the rights of the community were placed above
those of the individual, that it provided for order instead of justice, and that it
failed to allow students to name students to committees. He predicted that this
might result in a Kent-type confrontation at the University of Kentucky. He ex-
pressed the hope that the Student Code Committee might continue to function in
order to provide a mechanism to effect needed revisions in the Code,

       Mr. Clay said that Mr. Griffin did include in his motion the continuation of
the committee as a Standing Committee. He then said that "the motion has been
made for the adoption of the Code and it has been seconded. If there are no further
questions, all in favor indicate by saying "aye". All opposed "no". " There being
no "no" votes, the motion carried.


       W. Student Demands Presented to the Board by Mr. Bright

       Mr. Bright requested permission to speak which was granted. He said he
had promised the students to convey to the Board the deep concern arid interest




 






11



which the students have in Vietnam and the deplorable events at Kent State Uni-
versity. The students were asking that the Board of Trustees take action to ban
all weapons from the campus, condemn Kent State University, and condemn
the involvement of the United States in Cambodia. He said that the students were
planning in-depth examinations of the Cambodia situation all day on Wednesday,
May 6.

       Mr. Clay thanked Mr. Bright and expressed his personal concern over
recent events. He said that all mourned the tragic deaths of the four students
at Kent State University and it was his prayerful hope and heartfelt desire that
members of the University of Kentucky academic community, students, faculty,
and staff, would conduct themselves in such a manner that a confrontation such
as that at Kent State University would not occur on the campus of the University
of Kentucky.


       X. Meeting Adjourned

       There being no further business to come before the meeting, on motion
duly made, seconded, and carried, the meeting adjourned at 2:45 p. m.

                                               Respectfully submitted,

        The Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky recognizes
and pays tribute today to:

                       TIMOTHY R. FUTRELL

for the exemplary manner in which he has represented his fellow students
during his term as President of Student Government and non-voting student
member of the Board of Trustees. In all discussions of matters pertinent
to student welfare, Mr. Futrell has presented the student viewpoint dis-
passionately but forcefully. He has been firm in his defense of issues and
his eloquence on behalf of the student body has many times persuaded mnem-
bers of the Board to follow a course of action which has resulted in benefit
to the student body as a whole. He has shown a maturity of judgment and a
poise that is remarkable. He has accepted those decisions which were not
always in accord with his own beliefs with a true understanding of the larger
issues involved and has defended those actions of the Board to his fellows
students.

        The students who have served as members of the Board of Trustees
of the University of Kentucky have all been effective members and in recog-
nizing Mr. Futrell, the Board also recognizes his two predecessors and
acknowledges that the Board of Trustees and the institution it serves have
benefited immeasurably from the presence of these young men on the Board.

        Be it, therefore, resolved that the Board of Trustees express its
thanks and appreciation to Mr. Futrell, extend its congratulations on his
outstanding leadership and his excellent scholastic record, and offer its
sincere good wishes for a bright and successful future.

        Be it further resolved that this resolution be adopted, ordered
spread upon the Minutes of the May 5, 1970 meeting of the Board of Trustees
and a copy sent to Mr. Futrell.
