     The Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky met in regular session in

Robert L. Johnson, and Provost Lewis Cochran. Members of the various news
media were also present.

     A. Meeting Opened

     Governor Breathitt called the meeting to order and requested Mr. Smith
Broadbent to give the invocation. Following roll call, Dr. Murray reported a
quorum present and the meeting was declared officially open for the conduct of
business at 1:35 p.m.

     B. Minutes Approved

     On motion by Mr. Ezelle, seconded by Mr. Hillenmeyer, the reading of the
Minutes for the February 17, 1967 meeting of the Executive Committee and the
March 17, 1967 recessed meeting of the Board of Trustees was dispensed with and
the Minutes were approved as published.

     C. President's Report to the Trustees

     Dr. Oswald briefly reviewed the items contained in PR 1, copies of which
were available to all those present, and concluded his remarks by reporting that
Mrs. Lucile Blazer had represented the Board of Trustees at the meeting of the
Association of Governing Boards at the University of Illinois in mid-April and that
Dr. Glenwood L. Creech had also attended as Dr. Oswald's representative. Mrs.
Blazer thanked the Board for affording her the opportunity to participate in the
meeting and said she had found it most helpful.

     Having determined that there were no further additions to the report,
Governor Breathitt thanked Dr. Oswald and the report was ordered accepted and




     D. Recommendations of the President (PR 2)

     Dr. Oswald said that he would be pleased to answer any questions the Board
might have but inasmuch as copies of PR 2 had been mailed in advance for prior
study, he had no special comments to make other than to call attention to the list
of promotions and tenure appointments on pages 16 through 18. He said that the
list of names was not complete and additional names would be submitted for ap-
proval at a later meeting.

     The Board members expressed gratification at the number of persons recom-
mended for degrees or certificates from the various community colleges and without
further comment, on motion by Mr. Ezelle, seconded by Dr. Denham, and passed,
PR 2, Recommendations of the President, was approved as a whole and ordered
made an official part of the Minutes of the May 2, 1967 meeting of the Board of Trus-
tees. (See PR 2 at the end of the Minutes. )

     E. Supplemental Recommendations of the President (PR 3)

     Since the Board had not had an opportunity to examine PR 3, Supplemental
Recommendations of the President, in advance of the meeting Dr. Oswald called
attention to the recommendation that Dr. Jesse Hobson be named to a three-year
term on the Board of Directors of The University of Kentucky Research Foundation
as a citizen member and that Dr. Wendell DeMarcus be reappointed to a three-year
term as a faculty member. He reminded the Board, that at the March 17 meeting,
Mr. Richard Cooper had been named to a three-year term as a Trustee member.

     Dr. A. D. Albright's one-year term on the Board of Directors of Lincoln
School has expired and Dr. Oswald called attention to item II in PR 3 which recom-
mended the appointment of Mr. Robert L. Johnson to replace hirn on the Board for
a three-year term ending December 31, 1969.

     Item III of PR 3 recommended approval of three departmental chairmen,
Professor Robert D. Grieves, Professor Roger Eichhorn, and Dr. Hans Conrad.
Dr. Oswald indicated he would like to add the name of a fourth person for the
Chairmanship of the Department of Electrical Engineering -- Dr. Robert Cosgriff,
who is presently at Ohio State University. Dr. Grieves is at the Illinois Institute
of Technology at the present time, while Dr. Conrad has been Technical Director
of the Materials Science and Engineering Division of the Franklin Institute, and
Dr. Eichhorn is at Princeton University. All four of these men are outstanding in
their particular discipline and the University of Kentucky is fortunate to have been
able to attract them. They will provide the quality of leadership which is essential
if the College of Engineering is to continue to strengthen and develop its programs,
particularly at the graduate level.

      Governor Breathitt, having determined there were no questions relative to the
report, called for a motion for adoption. On motion by Mr. Ezelle, duly seconded,



and approved, PR 3, Supplemental Recommendations of the President, was ap-
proved as a whole and ordered made an official part of the Minutes of the May 2
meeting of the Board of Trustees. (See PR 3 at the end of the Minutes.)

     F. Approval of Degree Candidates (PR 4)

     Under the Statutes, one of the quarterly meetings of the Board of Trustees
is set for the Tuesday preceding the annual commencement exercises at the Uni-
versity of Kentucky. This is done in order that the Board of Trustees may approve
the candidates for degrees; therefore, Dr. Oswald said that PR 4 was probably the
most important item on the agenda and certainly the reason for the meeting today.
The list presented to the Board for approval contained only the names of persons
completing requirements in May 1967, approval having already been given to
August and December candidates. A total of 2, 398 persons are scheduled to re-
ceive degrees at the commencement exercises on May 8, 1967, distributed as
follows: graduate degrees, 593; professional degrees, 224; and undergraduate de-
grees, 1, 581. While the number of undergraduate degrees to be conferred shows
a decrease of 3. 6 per cent from 1966, there is an increase of 19 per cent in gradu-
ate degrees and 21. 8 per cent in professional degrees.

     On motion by Mr. Black, seconded by Mr. Hillenmeyer, and passed unani-
mously, the President was authorized to confer upon each individual whose name
appears on the list the degree to which he is entitled upon certification by the Dean
of Admissions and Registrar that said individual has satisfactorily completed all
requirements for the degree for which he has made application. (See PR 4 at the
end of the Minutes.

      G. Approval Given to Student Code (PR 5)

      As Chairman of the Board Committee appointed by Governor Breathitt at the
April 4 meeting of the Board, Mr. Smith Broadbent reported that his committee,
which was composed of Mrs. Lucile Blazer and Mr. Sam Ezelle, had met on April
26 with members of the Senate Advisory Committee on Student Affairs, which had
prepared the recommendations relative to student discipline and procedures, with
the Senate Council as representatives of the University Senate, and with members
of the Cabinet of Student Government. He commented that the committee had found
it a rewarding experience and were quite pleased with the cooperative and helpful
spirit shown by the faculty as well as the students with whom the committee had
talked. As a result of the conferences held, the Board Committee had made a few
modifications in the original document and a copy of the document with the recom-
mended modifications was before each member. He pointed out the specific changes
made by page and section and indicated the proposed changes would not alter the
original intent of the document appreciably but would serve to clarify certain areas
which had been of concern to members of the Board, to parents, and to taxpayers



in the State. As a matter of record. the chanoes as reComrmrended by the com-
mittee are included as an addendum to PR 5 a t the end of the Minutes.

      With the modifications suggested. thel comnmnittee felt that the document was
now acceptable as a policy statenment of the Board of Trustees from which subse-
quent governing regulations migh't be fnormnlated and recomnmended to the Board
that the documient, as modified, be appr^Dved. On behalf of the committee, Mr.
Broadbent so moved and his motion was second.-d by Mr. Black.

      In the discussion which followed. Dr Diachun, as Chairmlanl of the Senate
Council, indicated that the discussions with the mnermbers of the Senate Council had
been free and amiable and said that the Council-. acting on behalf of the Senate. had
no objections to the changes recomrmended byr the Triustee Commrittee. He felt the
changes were desirable and in spirit with the recommendations of the Senate. Mr.
Ezelle complimented the students who had met with the committee on their interest,
understanding, and concern for the welfare of their fellow students.

      Dr. Denharn asked Dr. Oswald if he would like to comment inasmuch as he
had not been present at the March and Apr-il meetings when the student code had
first been discussed. Dr. Oswald said 'be would like very mn-uch to express his high
regard for the faculty - student committee which had spent much tnie and thought
on drawing up the original document and to the Uni-ers-ity Senate and the Student
Government which spent much time in considering it, Hie continued that it is an im-
portant document and in view of the general unrest and uneasiness prevalent
throughout the nation. it is significant that the Unitvers'ty of Kentucky has been able
to draft a policy statement, not in the context of crisis, but with mutual understand-
ing and respect. It is equally significant that the policy has the wholehearted
endorsement and support of the students. faculty and the Board of Trustees, The
University will now have a document which clearly delineates the relationships of
the student to the institution, and of the institution to the student. It further sets
forth certain behavioral aspects of the students, sets clear standards for the
students, lists specific disciplinary procedures, and makes quite clear the policies
which exist on the campus. In the past. the Univ.\ersitv has attempted to handle
disciplinary matters on an ad hoc basis with fair play in mnind. It will now be
possible to follow an. orderly procedure of review and action by the J-Board with
provision for appeal by either the student oi the President from the J-Board to the
Appeals Board which will involve rm-inembe rs of the faculty as well as students. Final
decision in matters of punishment for disciplinary violations is delegated to the
President who is responsible to the Board of Trustees in fiscal, academic; and
disciplinary matters.

      In closing. Dr. Oswald said tihe Board might be interested to know that as a
result of an item in one of the recent newsletters of the National Association of
State Universities arid Land-Grant Colleges which re-ferred to the proposed Uni-
versity of Kentucky Student Code, over 50 requests for copies have been received
from sister institutions. He read the following quot. fronm one of thie letters as an



example of the tone of all of them, "Congratulations to you and the University for
your timely efforts. Such a document is particularly needed in every college and
university in the country today. and many of our misunderstandings are caused
from the lack of such a clear-cut policy.

     There being no further discussion, the Governor called for a vote on the
motion for the adoption of the modified document on student discipline and pro-
cedures, and all present voted affirmatively. -See PR 5 and Addendum at the end
of the Minutes.

     H. Approval "In Principle" of the Preliminary Development Plans for the
Ashland Community College (PR 6 )

      Although the Board members had already received copies of the Preliminary
Development Plan for the Ashland Community College, Mr. Kerley made additional
copies available, explaining that the plans for Ashland were essentially the same
as those already approved for other community colleges. He said that the people
of Ashland have made available 47 acres as the new site for the Community College
and the plans presented are based on long-range planning as it is currently seen
with an ultimate goal of 500, 000 square feet for an eventual enrollment of 5, 000
students. As soon as the first facility is completed the College will be able to move
from the downtown area and it will then be possible to provide in Ashland the type
of facility which is desired for all community colleges.

      On motion bv Mrs. Blazer, seconded by Dr. Denham., and unanimously ap-
proved, the Ashland Community College Preliminary Development Plan was
approved "in principle" with the understanding that the plan will be periodically
revised as the program requirements of the College become more fully expressed.

      I. School of Home Economics Established as a Coordinate Unit in the
Division of Colleges (PR 7)

      In 1963, as with other units in the institution, a study of the Home Economics
program began which resulted in certain recommendations which appeared in the
Academic Plan adopted by the Board of Trustees in June of 1.964. In order to im-
plement sonme of these recommendations. Dr. Oswald said he invited four eminent
persons in the field of home economics to come to the institution to look at the
program and to make recommendations about the future. After the reports of these
consultants were receipted. m-iany people examined the program and many discussions
were held with the faculty of Home Economics, the College of Agriculture, and other
units of the University. The final outcome has resulted in the recommendation pre-
sented to the Board, narnelv that the School of Home Economics be established as a
coordinate unit with other schools a-nd colleges in the Division of Colleges, that a



position of dean be established for the purpose of administering the School of Home
Economics, and that the School be organized into appropriate departments. Dr.
Oswald recommended approval with the effective date to be July 1, 1967. He added,
that with the establishment of the School of Home Economics as a coordinate unit
the words "and Home Economics' would be deleted from the present name of the
college and it would henceforth be known as the College of Agriculture.

     Dr. Albright added that the recommendation which Dr. Oswald had presented
had the endorsement and support of representative groups of persons in the field of
home economics, not only locally but throughout the State.

     On motion duly made, seconded, and carried, the recommendation presented
by Dr. Oswald. which is set forth in PR 7, was approved and, effective July 1, 1967,
the School of Home Economics will become a coordinate unit in the Division of
Colleges and the words "and Home Economics" will be deleted from the present
name of the College of Agriculture and Home Economics. (See PR 7 at the end of
the Minutes. )

     J. Faculty Memorial Scholarships Established (PR 8)

     Dr. Oswald said that the week of April 2, 1967 was probably one of the most
tragic in the history of the University for during that week four members of the
faculty lost their lives in a plane crash, and a fifth died of a heart attack. All five
were comparatively young men on the threshold of their most productive years and
four left children still to be educated. This tragic week brought into sharp focus
the fact that the University provided no educational assistance for families of
members of the faculty who die while in service at the University. In order to do
what should have been done earlier, President Oswald said he would like to recom-
mend to the Board of Trustees that faculty memorial scholarships for children of
full-time faculty members who die while in service of the University of Kentucky be
established, these scholarships to be underwritten by the University to the extent of
undergraduate registration fees, resident or non-resident, and receipt of such a
scholarship to be dependent upon the admissibility of the student. He added that the
scholarships might be enriched through gifts donated to the scholarship fund in the
name of the deceased. He emphasized that the scholarship should be applicable not
only to the children of those who died most recently but should be open to those
eligible children who are now in the baccalaureate program at the University and
others currently below the collegiate age. In closing, he said that it was impossi-
ble to give an estimate of the numbers involved but an effort would be made to seek
out all those eligible for such scholarships.

      Mr. Hillenmeyer made the motion that the recommendation to establish faculty
memorial scholarships as set forth in PR 8 be approved. His motion was seconded
by Mr. Ezelle. Dr. Denham said he hoped these scholarships would serve as a
tangible expression to the faculty of the Board's appreciation and of the concern which



they feel for the children of deceased faculty members. Governor Breathitt called
for a vote on Mr. Hillenmeyer's motion, and it passed unanimously. He thanked
the Board for its action and said he felt that the provision of these scholarships
would meet with widespread public approval and asked members of the news media
who were present to give broad coverage to the establishment of the faculty me-
morial scholarships since a wide dissemination of the information would be helpful
in locating children who might be eligible for such scholarships. (See PR 8 at the
end of the Minutes. )

     K. Dr. Wethington Named Director of Maysville Community College

     Dr. Oswald said he wished to recommend that Dr. Charles T. Wethington, Jr.,
be named Director of the Maysville Community College effective July 1, 1967. Dr.
Wethington came to the University in 1964 as an instructor in educational psychology
and became Acting Director of the Lexington Technical Institute in 1966. His ex-
perience prior to coming to the University includes teaching at the secondary level
in Kentucky and in California and in USAFI evening classes at Misawa Air Base in
Japan. He said Dr. Wethington, an assistant professor of education, holds the A. B.
degree from Eastern Kentucky University and the M.A. and Ph. D. degrees from the
University of Kentucky. Dr. Oswald reported that the recommendation had the en-
dorsement and support of Dean Ellis F. Hartford.

     Dr. Denharn said that he was delighted that the Maysville Community College
had such a well qualified young man as its first director and made the motion that
his appointment be approved. His motion was seconded and passed withoat dissent.

     L. Board Committee Appointed as Liaison with Joint UK-UL Committee

     Under HR 43, President John Oswald of the University of Kentucky and Presi-
dent Philip G. Davidson of the University of Louisville were asked to appoint a joint
committee to study the future role of the University of Louisville in the state system
of higher education. The following committee was named: Lisle Baker, Chairman,
Thomas A. Ballantine, William H. Kendall, William F. Lucas, Albert G. Clay,
H. Lee Cooper, Ed Paxton, and Clair Vough. The committee employed the firm of
Heald, Hobson and Associates as consultants and the consultants submitted a pre-
lininary report during the late winter which Dr. Oswald discussed informally with
members of the Board. The Joint UK-UL Committee prior to drafting its final
report for submission to the two presidents and to the Governor has indicated its
wish to learn the reactions of the Boards of the two institutions to some of the recom-
mendations made by Heald, Hobson and Associates. The Board of Trustees of the
University of Louisville has already named a committee and President Oswald re-
quested Governor Breathitt to appoint a similar committee from the University of
Kentucky Board. These two Board committees, after first meeting together, would
then meet with the Joint UK-UL Committee for full discussion of future relationships
between the two institutions.



     Governor Breathitt appointed Dr. Ralph Angelucci, Mr. William R. Black,
Dr. Harry Denham and Professor Paul Oberst as the committee from the Universi-
ty of Kentucky Board of Trustees and named Dr. Angelucci chairman.

     M. Feasibility Study of Relocation of Stadium Authorized (PR 11)

     In the early stages of the long-range planning of the central campus, it became
evident that building sites would be of prime importance if the needs of a student
body of 20, 000 or more were to be met satisfactorily. The present stadium now
occupies an area which should be made available in the near future for academic
purposes. The fact that the stadium is utilized only five times during a year, makes
its present location extremely costly in terms of land use.

     In June 1966, the Board of Trustees authorized President Oswald to undertake
all actions necessary to conduct physical and financial planning for a new stadium
to be located on Coldstream Farm. Subsequent to this authorization, city and county
officials as well as representatives of the student body and faculty requested that
consideration be given to the selection of alternate sites within walking distance of
the campus. An ad hoc committee under the chairmanship of Mr. Robert L. Johnson
and composed of representatives of the community, the students, the faculty and
administration, and the alumni, was named by President Oswald and requested to
study alternate sites and to recommend several such sites to him for presentation to
the Board of Trustees. The committee has carried out its charge and has recom-
mended three possible sites as follows: (1) on the University farm, south of Cooper
Drive; (2) near the Jefferson overpass which is involved in the urban renewal and
track removal project; and (3) another urban renewal area between Limestone and
Broadway and north of Euclid. The first site is recommended over the other two
possibilities since the University already owns the land there; however, discussions
with community leaders will continue on the feasibility of the other two sites.

      Dr. Oswald read the recommendation as set forth. in PR 11 which recommend-
ed that the Athletics Association be requested to conduct a feasibility study of
constructing a 50, 000 seat stadium and adjoining parking lot for 2, 000 automobiles
on the University of Kentucky farm, 3outh of Cooper Drive, emphasizing that the
parking should be fitted into the University's long-range needs and possible multiple
uses of the stadium itself should be explored.

      Governor Breathitt complimented the University administration, faculty, and
the students for the wisdom of their thinking. He said that an investment as large
as would be required to construct a 50, 000 seat stadium with attendant parking
facilities should be of benefit to the entire institution and not to a small segment of
it. The day-to-day use of the parking area and the provision to accommodate
several of the facilities now programmed in the Physical Education Complex would
insure the best possible return on the investment.

Mr. Hillenmeyer moved that the recommendation as stated in PR 11, which is



included at the end of the Minutes, be approved. The motion was seconded by
Dr. Denham. All present voted 'aye, with the exception of Mr. Sam Ezelle who
voted "nay". (See PR 11 at the end of the Minutes.)

     N. Meeting Dates for 1967-68 Established (PR 12)

     Dr. Oswald called attention to PR 12 which listed the meeting dates for the
Board of Trustees and the Executive Committee for the fiscal year 1967-68. He
commented that the recommended dates would provide for monthly meeting of the
Board of Trustees from September through May. The monthly meetings were set
at the request of the members of the Board of Trustees. The Executive Commit-
tee would still meet during the summer months and at such times as deemed de-
sirable or necessary between monthly meetings of the Board.

     On motion by Mr. Ezelle, seconded by Mrs. Blazer, the Board established
monthly meetings from September through May and approved the dates for such
meetings as set forth in PR 12, (See PR 12 at the end of the Minutes.

     0. Executive Committee Elected

     Governor Breathitt said that under the Statutes of the Commonwealth the Ex-
ecutive Committee of the Board of Trustees must be elected yearly. The present
Executive Committee was elected on May 3, 1966 and action was needed at this
meeting. He asked for nominations and Mr. Black moved that the existing Com-
mittee be thanked for the outstanding job which it has done and that the present
members (Dr. Ralph Angelucci, Chairman, Mr. Smith Broadbent, Dr. Harry
Denham, Mr. Robert Hillenmeyer, Dr. H. B. Murray) be re-elected. Mr. Ezelle
seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

     P. School of Mathematical Sciences Activated (PR 13)

     Dr. Oswald called attention to PR 13 which recommended the activation of the
School of Mathematical Sciences effective July 1, 1967. He said that the establish-
ment of such a school had already been approved as a part of the general plan for
the organization of the College of Arts and Sciences presented to the Board earlier
and the Board was merely being asked to approve activation of the school and the ap-
pointment of Dr. Wimberly Royster as Director of the School of Mathematical
Sciences and Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences.

     On motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Dr. Angelucci, and passed, the
recommendation made as a part of PR 13 was approved. Dr. Diachun commented
that he was sorry he did not have a vote for he would like very much to have the op-
portunity to vote in favor of the appointment of Dr. Royster as Director of the School



and Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences. (See PR 13 at the end of the
Minutes. )

     Q. Board Committee Named to Work With Athletics Association Committee
on Stadium Feasibility Study

     Governor Breathitt said that if the members approved, he would like to name
a committee from the Board of Trustees to work with the Athletics Association
Committee conducting the feasibility study for the relocation of the stadium. The
members agreed that such a committee would be extremely desirable and the
Governor designated Mr. Hillenmeyer, Dr. Denham, and Mr. Ezelle to serve as a
committee to work with the Athletics AssociationCommittee.

     R. Jefferson Community College Offices Opened

     Dr. Oswald said that invitations had been issued to attend the formal opening
of the offices of the Jefferson Community College on May 9, in Louisville. He ex-
pressed the hope that some of the members of the Board might be able to attend and
reported that work had already started on the renovation of the Presbyterian
Seminary building and the old Pharmacy Building and that the first students should
be admitted in January 1968.

     S. Meeting Adjourned

     Governor Breathitt asked if there was any further business to come before the
meeting. Dr. Diachun replied that inasmuch as the Board had approved as a part
of PR 2, a leave of absence for him from August 1, 1967 through July 31, 1968, he
would not be attending any more meetings of the Board and wished to say to the
Board that he had found his term of service of great value. For himself personnally
and for the members of the faculty who elected him to the Board, he expressed
thanks for the sincere interest and concern evidenced by the Board in all matters
relating to the faculty and the academic affairs of the institution.

      Governor Breathitt said that the Board had been aided in its deliberations by
the advice and counsel they received from the non-voting faculty members. He
thanked Dr. Diachun for his contribution and wished him a pleasant and enjoyable

      On motion by Mr. Ezelle, seconded by Mrs. Blazer, and approved the May 2,
1967, meeting of the Board of Trustees adjourned at 3:20 p. m.

                                                Respectfully submitted,
