Dean White presented f r the College of Arts and Sciences a recormendation that
the University Band be authorized to be absent from the campus on November 19th
and ?”th in order that it might present a concert at Corbin on November 19th
and that it might play at the football game in Knoxville on November 20th. The
reconmendation was epproved by the Faculty.

Dean Stahr presented for Dean Spivey a report on Foreign Operations
Administration and the Jugoslnvian universities. He stated that the proposed
contract which Dean Spivey and FrofeSSor Nesius had drafted with Jugoslavia
this past summer covered a threeovear program designed to strengthen the
universities in Jugoslavia mainly in the fields of agriculture, engineering
and the supporting sciences. He indicated that not more than five members
of the faculty would be selected to represent the University of Kentucky
for a maximum period of one year each and he also explained the salary
arrangement and SOme of the remunerations in connection with this program.

A discussion followed this presentation after which Dean Stahr recommended
that the University Faculty go on record as approving this program as outlined
generally if it actually becomes available to the University, and subject to
final form of contract to the University. The Faculty approved this recom—

President Donovan commended Dean Spivey and members of the Committee for
the very fine job which had been done in the FOA program negotiations. '

Dr. Martin requested that the University Faculty review the probationary
status of Sigma.Phi Epsilon fraternity. He presented the record of the Chapter
from September 1953 when it was placed on social probation through the second
semester of 1954 when it had attained a 1.27 standing.

It is respectfully requested that the Faculty at this time review
the probationary status of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. In
September, 1953, this Fraternity was placed on social probation for
failure to earn the required 1.3 standing. The officers, members of
this Chapter, and the nntionel offiCers of the Fraternity met with
Dean Kirwan in order to make plans to meet this situation. The
following action was carried out by the Fraternity.

1. In September, 1953, eleven ective members of the
Chapter were expelled for failure to carry their
share of the academic load.

2. A rigid supervised study program wes inaugurated
for fall pledges.

3. At the end of the first semester eleven of sixteen
pledges were expelled from the house for failure to
earn a 1.0 average. his means that the house dras-
tically cut off its rolls twenty-two men who were
chiefly responsible for the low academic standing of
the Fraternity. Finally, this placed a tremendous
burden on the remaining members.

4. During the second semester a rigid supervised study

prOgram was inaugurated for all members who had failed
to earn a 1.? during the firevious semester.




























The result of the attitude and activity of the Sigma Phi Epsilon
Fraternity is shown in that during the first term the Fraternity earned
a 1.1 average and in the second term raised this to a 1.45. It is be-
lieved that this Fraternity has more than met the spirit of the Faculty
ruling governing academic standards and has taken every possible recourse
to improve its status under the ruling. It is the recommendation of Dean
Kirwan, in which I concur wholeheartedly, that although the overeall average
of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity for the past year was 1.27, the Faculty
restore this house to good standing and grant them social privileges for
the present school year.

The motion was made by Dr. Martin and seconded by Dr. Kirwan that since the

fraternity had more than met the Spirit of the faculty ruling governing aca.‘
demic standards, it be restored to good standing and be granted social privileges
for the present academic year. The Faculty approved the motion.

The Faculty adjourned.
