                 PROMOTION AND TENURE RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation: that Dr. Joseph Murray Hayse not be promoted to the
rank of Associate Professor or granted tenure at the University of
Kentucky.
Background: The reasons for this recommendation are contained in the
attached memorandum; the recommendation is brought to the Board in
order to comply with a decision of the Court of Appeals of Kentucky
interpreting the University's administrative regulations as applied in
this case.

January 21, 1986



Members, Executive Committee, Board of Trustees:

        In 1978 Dr. Joseph Murray Hayse, then a faculty member in the
University's Honors Program, was considered for promotion from the
rank of Assistant to Associate Professor and for tenure in the
University System. He was recommended for promotion and tenure by the
faculty and Director of the Honors Program. However, the Dean of
Undergraduate Studies recommended against promotion and tenure. Dr.
Hayse's promotion file was then forwarded to the Academic Area
Advisory Committee for the Humanities and to the Dean of the Graduate
School, both of whom recommended against promotion and tenure. The
Dean of Undergraduate Studies advised Dr. Hayse that he would not be
promoted or awarded tenure and that the decision was final.

        Thereafter, Dr. Hayse brought suit against the Board of
Trustees and Dr. John Stephenson, the then Dean of Undergraduate
Studies, contending, among other things, that the University had not
properly applied its administrative regulations in his case and that
various of his Constitutional rights had been violated in the
process.  The Circuit Court entered a Summary Judgment in favor of the
University. This decision was appealed by Dr. Hayse to the Kentucky
Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals reversed the Circuit Court's
decision and remanded the case to the Circuit Court.

        As interpreted by the Court of Appeals, the University's
administrative regulations required that Dr. Hayse's case be
considered by both the President and the Board of Trustees.

        Accordingly, I have asked Dr. Art Gallaher, the Chancellor of
the Lexington Campus, to review Dr. Hayse's promotion file. (Since
the reorganization of the University, the duties of the former Vice
President for Academic Affairs in this respect have been assumed by
the Chancel 1 or.)

        Chancellor Gallaher has reviewed Dr. Hayse's promotion file
and has recommended to me that he not be promoted or granted tenure.
I have reviewed Dr. Hayse's file and noted the following:

        A.   The Director and faculty of the Honors Program
             recommended unanimously for promotion and tenure.

        B.   The Dean of Undergraduate Studies (to whom the Honors
              Program Director reported) after consultation with an ad
              hoc faculty committee, disapproved the proposal.




 









       C.   The Academic Area Advisory Committee for the Humanities
            considered the file and found that Dr. Hanse's
            publication record "...does not meet the standards that
            have been applied to all other cases which have come
            before the Committee." The Area Committee also found
            that:

                  "Nothing has been published, and neither the
                  articles which have been accepted by journals nor
                  the book-length manuscripts offer strong evidence
                  that Dr. Hayse will distinguish himself as a
                  scholar."

Accordingly, the Area Committee did not recommend promotion or tenure
for Dr. Hayse.

        D.   The Dean of the Graduate School concurred with the Area
             Committee; he found that:
