Chairman’s Report

Dr. Brockman began by reporting that there had been no requests since the last meeting
to speak or appear before the Board.
Dr. Brockman welcomed the three new trustees, Alumni trustee Kelly Holland of
Lexington, Gubernatorial appointee Mark Bryant from Paducah, KY and the SGA president
Steven Bilas from Louisville KY.
Dr. Brockman reminded the Board members that in lieu of the October Board meeting,
there will be a Board of Trustees retreat on Saturday October 13th and Sunday October 14th. He
announced that there would be some action items that would occur at the retreat.
Dr. Brockman announced that after the afternoon elections, the new Chair would begin
work on committee assignments and would be requesting the Board’s preferences.
Dr. Brockman reviewed for the Board the difference between the University of Kentucky
Governing Regulations and the Administrative Regulations. The Governing Regulations can
only be changed by the Board of Trustees and the Administrative Regulations are in the purview
of the President. He noted however, there are a few Administrative Regulations that for a variety
of reasons are in the Board’s purview. Those reasons might be one of the following:
a) a state or federal law or accreditation agency specifically requires the Board to implement
a policy;
b) the Board has not delegated the authority and specifically retained approval in the general
c) the Board originally or historically adopted the policy for whatever reason and has never
delegated it;
d) the subject matter is such that the Board chooses to adopt the policy itself rather than
Dr. Brockman cited that Administrative Regulation 7.2, titled “Financial Conflict of
Interest in Research,” is now under the President’s purview because it has been changed to
comply with federal guidelines and no longer requires Board of Trustees oversight.

Annual Performance Evaluation (ECR1)

Dr. Brockman reported that the Executive Committee met in open session on July 31st
and recommended two action items. The first item, ECR 1 recommended that the Chair of the
Executive Committee present to the Executive Committee and to the President, a summary of the
July 31st discussion. This discussion reported the Executive Committee findings and the
recommendations to the President regarding the 2011-2012 Presidential Evaluation.
Dr. Brockman thanked the Board members and the many other individuals who
participated in the evaluative process. He reported that President Capilouto, as the evaluation

* clearly showed, had an outstanding year; leading the University through important changes, and
laying the foundation for more progress and change in the coming years. Dr. Brockman
reiterated the evaluation underscored the time and commitment President Capilouto has made to
deeply engage with the campus and UK’s many constituencies on how best to move forward
during very challenging times.
Dr. Brockman stated that as a campus and as a Board, we have set forth two prominent
goals: to enhance an already strong undergraduate education program and to move forward with
an ambitious revitalization of our campus infrastructure. He stated that he believes that with
President Capilouto, the University has the “right person at the right time” to move forward with
a blue print for the future.
Dr. Brockman was proud of the constructive feedback that the evaluation contained for
areas of improvement. He noted that “everyone can improve” and it reinforced the credibility of
the report. It was also a strong endorsement of the University’s current direction, while also
spotlighting in a constructive fashion where more can be done. It was also a supportive
statement in regards to the sense of transparency and commitment.
Dr. Brockman stated that ECR 1 is a recommendation that the Chair of the Executive
Committee, on behalf of the Committee, will present the President and the Executive Committee
a summary of the discussion from the July 31, 2012 meeting and the Chair’s presentation will
include a recommendation of the Executive Committee that there be no change in President
Capilouto’s contract. Dr. Brockman opened the floor for discussion.
Dr. Voro read the following statement:
“I was elected to represent the faculty. So, before I vote for something important, I try to
find out what the faculty opinion on the subject is. Our faculty has a long list of grievances with
the administration, and the list doesn’t seem to get shorter.
The Presidential evaluation is one of those occasions when the faculty can express its
judgment about the quality of the administration as a whole and the presidential performance in
particular. From my polling of the faculty on this issue in June, I saw that the majority of
responses came out negative, sometimes scathing; and that was before the realization that the job
and program cuts this summer were probably unnecessary.
I find that this faculty opinion was not adequately represented in the presidential
evaluation process. Therefore, I will abstain from voting on the Presidential contract and
incentive payment.”
Seeing no further discussion, Dr. Brockman called for the vote. The motion passed with
18 affirmative votes and one abstention, Trustee Voro. (See ECR 1 on the Board of Trustees
website, www.uky.edu/Trustees, under agenda.)


* F.

Performance Incentive Payment (ECR 2)

Dr. Brockman stated that ECR 2 is the recommendation that in recognition of his
extraordinary performance, the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees Executive Committee
would sincerely like to offer President Capilouto a first year Performance Incentive
Payment. However, based on discussions with the President, the Board of Trustees Executive
Committee has decided to postpone any such action because of the current economic conditions.
With no discussion on the floor, Dr. Brockman called for the vote. The motion passed
with 18 affirmative votes and one abstention, Trustee Voro. (See ECR 2 on the Board of
Trustees website, www.uky.edu/Trustees, under agenda.)
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Brockman expressed his personal thanks to
President Capilouto for what he considered an exemplary performance over his first year.
There was a round of applause.

Nominating Committee Report

Mr. Shoop reported that the Nominating Committee met on August 31st.

Election of Officers

Mr. Shoop submitted the following nominations for the following offices:
For Chair - Dr. E. Britt Brockman
For Vice Chair - Ms. Pamela T. May
For Secretary - Ms. Sheila Brothers
For Assistant Secretary - a representative from the Office of Legal Counsel
Chair Brockman stated that the Board would proceed with the election of the officers.
He continued that he was honored to be the nominee as chair, but felt it would be a conflict of
interest to preside over that election. He asked former chair Billy Joe Miles to come forward to
accept the gavel and conduct the election of Chair.
Mr. Miles stated that the Nominating Committee nominated Britt Brockman for chair.
He asked for any nominations from the floor. With no nominations, he called for the vote. Mr.
Miles recognized Dr. Voro.
Dr. Voro read the following statement:
“I emailed you all on this issue of election, and I also had an extensive correspondence
with Chair Brockman on this issue as well. So I simply want to remind you that last year my
constituency informed me that I should not vote for any candidate for an executive office who
does not share his/her agenda for the executive position. And I believe I am not the only board
member who would benefit from knowing what our nominating agendas are.

* I also feel that it would be beneficial for the University community if these nominee
agendas are written and distributed to all members of the Board. This time around, I only
happen to know the plans of Staff Trustee Sheila Brothers who is nominated for Board Secretary.
If we really want to improve our Board and university governance, and also in light of the
lessons of Penn State, we need to have a real election of Board officers, with alternative
candidates and with candidate action agendas presented to the Board. That would improve
transparency and accountability of elected officers, improve Board functions, and improve the
University. Thank you.
With this my vote is no.”
The motion carried with 18 affirmative and one no vote from Trustee Voro.
Mr. Miles passed the gavel back to Dr. Brockman who continued with the election.
For vice chair, Ms. Pamela May has been nominated by the Nominating Committee. Dr.
Brockman asked for nominations from the floor. There were no further nominations from the

President’s Report (PR1)

President Capilouto opened his remarks by remembering the events of September 11,
2001. He appreciated that, through the efforts of the ROTC cadets, the United States flags have
been placed on the front lawn of the Main Building as a remembrance. He hoped that we can
pause and through our collective grief and respect, ease what must be a very difficult day for the
families of those who lost loved ones on 9/11.
President Capilouto stated that this year marks the 50th anniversary of the UK College of
Dentistry. It also marks 50 years of service for Dr. John R. Mink, who retired in July.
As the inaugural chair of pediatric dentistry in 1962, Dr. Mink succeeded in developing
an excellent team that continues to rank among the best in the nation in academic service and
clinical service to the community. Dr. Mink was also instrumental in establishing the college’s
mobile dental program.
President Capilouto continued that Dr. Mink came to UK in 1962 from Indiana
University and was essential in recruiting the core faculty for the pediatric dentistry department.
He walked into his first classroom in the fall of 1962 and during his time at UK, has taught every
single dental student that has graduated in the history of the college, more than 2500 students.
Dr. Mink’s influence extended beyond the classroom. In the 1990s, he would drive a
forty -foot van, fondly nicknamed by his colleagues "the Mink mobile." This dental clinic on
wheels traveled to remote locations in eastern Kentucky, providing oral health care to
disadvantaged children. The program has since been expanded to treat children in western
Kentucky as well. Today, the Mobile Dental Van program provides dental screening, treatment
and prevention services to about 11,000 Kentucky children a year.
Dr. Capilouto remarked that thousands of students, children and their families have been
impacted in such a positive way by one man, whose commitment to them, to the University and
the state will be felt for generations to come.
Dr. Capilouto thanked Dr. Mink and asked him to share a few words.
Dr. Mink thanked the Board of Trustees and President Capilouto for the honor of being
recognized today. He stated that he and his family had thoroughly enjoyed his 50 years at the
University. He and his wife had raised five children, three being University of Kentucky

* graduates, but he felt it was time to retire. He looked forward to time with his family and with
his new horse, which he has renamed “Retirement”.
Dr. Capilouto introduced Dr. Claudia Hopenhayn, an associate professor of
Epidemiology at the UK College of Public Health. She is also the director of the Graduate
Certificate program in Global Health and the new chair of the Shoulder to Shoulder Global
UK’s Shoulder to Shoulder Global initiative will be recognized by the Association of
Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) Kellogg Foundation for the exemplary work they do
to improve the health and education to the underserved in Ecuadorian communities.
The Shoulder to Shoulder initiative offers educational training and service learning
opportunities to UK faculty, staff and students as well as to community members. Dr. Capilouto
thanked Dr. Hopenhayn and her colleagues for their hard work and invited her to the podium to
share more about Shoulder to Shoulder Global’s initiative.
Dr. Hopenhayn expressed her delight, along with those of her colleagues present in the
room, about the opportunity to share with the Board. She stated that Shoulder to Shoulder
(Shoulder) began as a small medical mission ten years ago, created to improve the health and
quality of life in Ecuadorian communities suffering the effects of severe poverty.
Shoulder had grown to become a prime example of interdisciplinary education and
service-learning, with participation of students and faculty from about 10 UK colleges, and many
community volunteers. Shoulder currently operates a small, permanent clinic in a poor area of
Santo Domingo, Ecuador, with high rates of preventable health problems, lack of safe drinking
water and sanitation, just to name a few issues.
Dr. Hopenhayn stated that, with over 100 participants and growing every year, Dr.
Hopenhayn and colleagues travel to Ecuador yearly to provide health care, preventive and
community services to about 2000 people. She stated that in this way they help both the
community and provide unique learning opportunities for our students.
The clinic just celebrated its fifth year anniversary and has seen over 30,000 people in its
history. The small, yet amazing Ecuadorian team also performs many year-round outreach
activities, such as education for teen mothers, HIV/AIDS prevention, clean water projects, visits
to homes with disabled residents, etc. The clinic also serves as an ideal training site for students
and residents, for internships, medical rotations and research projects.
Dr. Hopenhayn continued that last year Shoulder added a semester-long course for
students, which culminates with the Ecuador travel experience. All of the activities increasingly
fulfill credit-bearing requirements of several academic programs, certificates and degrees and
give a structured learning context to the hands-on work in Ecuador.
Shoulder now represents the cornerstone of UK’s Global Health Initiatives, crucial for
recruiting top performing students to all of our health care colleges.

* Dr. Hopenhayn concluded her presentation with a quote from one of the students who
“…the brigade was one of the most powerful experiences of my life… , I believe that
(it)…helped to provide a strong, collaborative network not only between two nations, but
also to promote understanding between groups of people that differ in education,
socioeconomic status, cultural belief and social behavior… vital to the success of…wellbeing on a Global scale,”
Dr. Hopenhayn thanked the Board for their time and hoped the Board shared in her pride
of how Shoulder to Shoulder Global fulfills and extends UK’s mission of education, research and
service in a globalized community.
President Capilouto thanked Dr. Hopenhayn and all the people who make it possible.
President Capilouto directed the Board’s attention to the publication printed annually
called the K Book. The K Book, written by students for students, is a guide to life at UK and is
the "go-to" resource for incoming students.
Its 112 pages are filled with everything students would ever want to know about UK
and highlights the wealth of opportunities we have for every student at UK. The K Book traces
its history back to 1901, when it was a small pocket-sized booklet. It contained freshman rules,
school traditions, athletic schedules and school songs. It continued until 1966, when the name
was changed and it began to be published by various campus departments.
Students themselves produce this wonderful resource. They are provided with some staff
assistance from UK's Student Affairs areas, our PR and Marketing Department, and sponsorship
from the UK Federal Credit Union.
President Capilouto asked last year’s editor Morgan Rose, editor Lindsay Stellar and
several other K Book editorial board members to stand and be recognized.
The Board gave them a round of applause.
President Capilouto next introduced five students. All five) are new to UK this fall,
received some of UK’s most prestigious academic scholarships, and each scored a perfect score
of 36 on their ACT. The students are as follows:
Samuel Jefferson Potter, of Pikeville, majoring in Pre-materials Engineering
Todd William Montgomery, of Lexington, majoring in Pre-mechanical engineering
Logan Michael Hurley, of East Bernstadt
Grant Forrest Boggess, of Lexington, majoring in Engineering
Jacob Michael Mattingly, of Louisville, majoring in Chemistry
President Capilouto pointed out that each student is from Kentucky. He remarked that
there is great deal of discussion around this conference room table about UK’s challenges as an

* institution. We read and hear a great deal about our challenges and, at times, our perceived
shortcomings, as a state.
He continued that these young people demonstrate without question the potential of our
state. There are no limits to what these students can do and what their futures can be. That
means there does not have to be limits for Kentucky. These students that have entrusted us with
opening doors of opportunity and discovery, demonstrate that powerfully. They make the
Promise real.
The students received a round of applause.
President Capilouto stated that it is an exciting time at the University of Kentucky in
terms of enrollment. He acknowledged and thanked Don Witt, Associate Provost for Enrollment
Management and his team for the countless hours in recruiting students to UK. Mr. Witt and his
team are at a preview night in Pikeville, but will join the Board at its December meeting.
He continued that the Enrollment management team members are in the midst of 21
preview nights across the state and region. Last night, they were in Somerset, this evening in
Pikeville. Preview nights are where we bring the University of Kentucky to communities across
the Commonwealth and to cities such as Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis and Columbus. We have
seen incredible interest each night.
President Capilouto presented the news that the University welcomed the largest, most
diverse and best prepared fall incoming class in institution history. Included in this class were
more than 70 National Merit/Achievement Scholars and 25 percent of the incoming class has a
4.00 high school GPA or higher.
He continued that we have a record number of Singletary Scholars and he thanked UK
Athletics for their generous monetary contribution to make it possible. He remarked that
increasingly, not only Kentucky’s best and brightest, but additionally other students from our
region, recognize that UK is providing a world-class education and a comprehensive college
experience. This college experience is a credit to UK’s talented faculty, dedicated staff, and the
success of our current students and alumni.
President Capilouto continued that, nearly a year ago, the Board of Trustees provided a
clear direction for our future, to ensure that the best possible undergraduate experience awaits
Kentucky’s sons and daughters. Part of that is growing the student population, increasing UK’s
commitment to diversity, and recruiting talented students from Kentucky and the region. This
first-year class provides resounding proof that we are moving in the right direction on all these
President Capilouto reported that applications are up more than 18,000, a 24% increase
from last year. At more than 4,600 students, this is our largest incoming class. Our resident
undergraduate enrollment increased to more than 3100 students. Non-resident enrollment is up,
adding an important quality to our campus community.


* President Capilouto continued that enrollment has increased across the board in terms of
underrepresented groups. UK’s African American student population went from 422 to 533 for a
26% increase. The Hispanic population grew from 113 to 166 students. UK’s international
students nearly doubled from 56 to 110 students. The largest international group is from China, a
reflection of our efforts there.
Even as the first year class has grown by more than 500 students, the average ACT score
has maintained the University’s highest-ever mark of 25.5 and the number of students with ACT
scores ranging from 26-36 is at record levels.
President Capilouto was pleased to report that the number of National Merit scholars
went from 29 to 71 in just one year. In 2011, UK was ranked 57 of 359 institutions in terms of
the National Merit scholars. Comparing the same list, with 71 scholars, UK would move up to
36th amongst publics and privates and 15th among all publics. For comparison, the five
institutions just below us include Cornell, Dartmouth, Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Maryland
at College Park. The five just above UK are Indiana, Ohio State, Berkeley, Baylor, and Duke.
This year’s class has a record number of Governor’s Scholars and School for the Arts
students, 427 up from 394 last year. We welcomed 309 new Honors students, up from 226
students last fall.
President Capilouto reviewed the schedule of Preview Nights. He thanked Chair
Brockman and Trustee Brothers for attending the recent Preview Night in Lexington and
encouraged all the Board to be a part of the visits in their hometown. The team crisscrosses the
state from the northeast (Maysville, Ashland, Pikeville) to the western Kentucky (Owensboro,
Hopkinsville, Paducah) to cities in between (Elizabethtown, Somerset, Bowling Green). Many
of these areas have increased enrollment anywhere from 27-147 %. As an example, President
Capilouto reported that this fall, UK has 74 students enrolled as freshmen from Atlanta, Georgia.
This is up almost three times from last year.
President Capilouto reported that transfer enrollment remains important to UK and is
important to higher education in Kentucky. It builds pathways for students in the statewide
community and technical college system and four-year public and private universities. The
incoming class includes 1,169 students who transferred from two year and four year institutions.
An article in Inside Education yesterday contained a report by state that showed how many
students in all degree completion programs in Kentucky, previously enrolled in two year
colleges. In Kentucky, 43% of all students who graduate from a four year college came through
two year colleges. He noted that this is a reminder of how important this geographic access is to
our state.
President Capilouto remarked that in addition to our recruitment success, this is the fifth
year in a row UK has exceeded 80% first-to-second year retention. He stated that there is still
more work to do in this area. UK’s professional school enrollments are up slightly as is the
Graduate School. Doctoral and masters students are up 2.6%, slightly over 1% overall.


* President Capilouto also reported that UK is the first choice for research in Kentucky.
The University of Kentucky leads postsecondary education research in Kentucky, with more than
60% of all the federal research expenditures, more than 75% of the state and local expenditures
per year, and nearly sixty five 65% of industry sponsored research.
Last week, the Chronicle of Higher Education listed and ranked those universities with
the most licensing revenue in the United States. Only two universities in the state made the list of
the Top 155 and UK’s licensing income is 10 times greater than the other university listed. UK
was ranked 71st out of 155 universities. We were just above UNC Chapel Hill and Ohio State.
President Capilouto continued that through the strengthened investment in our medical
enterprise (and the numbers deserve to be repeated), UK HealthCare revenue has increased from
$300 million to $1 billion. Admissions have increased from 19,000 to 35,000 and we are the first
choice for patient care in Kentucky. President Capilouto commended Dr. Karpf and his team.
President Capilouto stated that UK’s success is a testament to the work of its faculty and
staff. From the unparalleled efforts of the Enrollment Management team, to the commitments
made by this Board of Trustees to excellence in looking forward, it is a signal that we have set
the right course and our priorities are in the best interest of moving Kentucky forward.
President Capilouto is convinced that students recognize that UK is committed to
education, high-quality curriculum and a modern campus community. Patients in need of
advanced medical care choose UK Healthcare. Research partners at all levels of government, as
well as our industry partners, come to this University because of our world-class intellectual and
human capital. On all levels, UK is growing in size, quality and most important, in value. We
are strengthening our national and global brand and, by that, in everything we do, from Athletics
to UK HealthCare to our academic programs, we are increasing student demand.
Though not content to rest on our laurels, President Capilouto continued that we are
proceeding with an aggressive agenda that will redouble our success in many areas. We are
continuing to make progress in our facility transformation. He mentioned that the Board of
Trustees would have an opportunity to review a new partnership with Shriners Hospital. In
October, the Board will review Phase II A of our housing revitalization program.
He stated that Interim Provost Tracy is leading the charge to implement our new
Financial Model of Accountability, which will empower colleges and units to make long-term
decisions in the best interest of their work. Additionally, Provost Tracy is building a framework
to implement suggestions for faculty recruitment, development and reward.
President Capilouto reminded the Board that from the recommendations from the Huron
reports, several administrative changes will improve operations and ensure transparency and
accountability. In terms of reorganization of the President’s office, we have removed direct
reports and are restructuring the Office of Commercialization to work with our many partners.
The Vice President of Research is now a direct report to the President and the Vice President of
Student Affairs is a co-report to President. The Vice President for Institutional Diversity
continues to be a direct report to the President.

* Interim Provost Tracy recently announced the strategic realignment of the Provost’s
office to better support our colleges and priorities. Through reorganization, the elimination of
four positions, and the transfer of two programs, we have reduced the number of direct reports by
seven. As part of the reorganization, we created one position, the Senior Vice Provost for
Student Success, because of the essential role student success plays in UK’s activities. Dean Dan
O’Hair will assume that role on an interim basis while maintaining his commitment to the
deanship with the College of Communication and Information.
President Capilouto was very thankful for not only the leadership of the Board, but to all
whose efforts and commitment have made these successes possible for advancing this Kentucky
Promise. He looks forward to what is ahead for our new students and the good works that we are
capable of providing at the University of Kentucky.
There was a round of applause.

Proposed Revision to Governing Regulations: University Faculty Appointments

(PR 3)
President Capilouto said that PR 3 is a recommendation that the Board of Trustees
receive and vote to accept for the first reading the attached revision of Governing Regulation
(GR) VIII.B, relating to faculty appointments and the appointments based on salary that are
submitted to the Board for final action. The Chair of the University Senate, the Interim Provost
and the President support these proposed revisions. In accordance with Governing Regulation
XIII, the University Senate will review this proposed revision before the second reading, which
will be the final action by the Board of Trustees.
Dr. Brockman asked for a motion and Mr. Stuckert moved approval of PR 3. Dr. Gannon
seconded the motion. Dr. Brockman asked if there was any discussion and recognized Dr. Voro.
Dr. Voro pointed out that the Chair of the University Senate was incorrect and it should
read Chair of the Senate Council
