       A. Meeting Opened

       Mr. Clay, presiding in the absence of Governor Nunn, called the meeting
to order at 2:18 o'clock. Following the invocation pronounced by Mr. Clay, the
Secretary reported a quorum present and the meeting was declared officially
open for the conduct of business at 2:20 p. m.

       B. Minutes Approved

       On motion by Mr. Cooper, seconded by Mr. Miller, and passed, the
reading of the Minutes of the March 16 and April 6 meetings of the Board was
dispensed with and the Minutes were approved as published.

       C. Election of Executive Committee and Officers of the Board

       Under KRS 164. 180 and 164. 190 the Board of Trustees is authorized to
elect annually a Vice Chairman and such other officers as it deems wise and
an Executive Committee of five members. Mr. Clay explained that the May
meeting of the Board is the time when this is customarily done. He asked Mr.
Bell to receive nominations for the two officers of the Board--Vice Chairman
and Secretary.

Dr. Nicholas nominated Mr. Albert Clay as Vice Chairman of the Board



and Mrs. Rexford Blazer as Secretary. Mr. Bell received the nominations and
moved that the nominations cease. His motion was seconded by Mr. Alverson,
and Mr. Clay and Mrs. Blazer were elected by acclamation.

       Mr. Clay then indicated that nominations for the Executive Committee
were open. Mr. Pence moved that Mr. Thomas Bell, Mr. Albert Clay, Mr.
Richard Cooper, Mr. Eugene Goss and Mr. George Griffin be elected as members
of the Executive Committee and that Mr. Clay be designated as its Chairman and
Mrs. Rexford Blazer as Secretary (ex officio). Mr. Bell accepted the nomi-
nations and moved that nominations cease. His motion was seconded by Mr.
Alverson. Mr. Bell indicated that the record should show that the Executive
Committee and its officers were elected by acclamation.

       D. President's Report to the Trustees

       President Singletary called attention to item 12 on page 5 of his report to
the Trustees which had to do with the Drug Education Committee Study. He com-
mended the excellence of the report submitted to him in mid-April and released
by him at that time to the press. He said the report emphasizes that drug use is
basically a social problem not confined to the campus, warns against the misuse
of statistics in defining it, points out that alcohol continues to be the most
common drug in use, and concludes that providing education directed toward
drug use and abuse is a logical function of the University. Although the committee
report is still under study by the administration, President Singletary stated that
it was his present intention to name a standing committee on drug education with
a charge to continue the study, to seek sources of outside financial support for
drug education, and to coordinate the University's efforts with those of the com-
munity and the Commonwealth.

       Cognizant of the problem even before the committee was appointed, the
University had already instituted certain programs. For instance, the College
of Pharmacy is now developing a course to be offered this fall dealing with drug
use and abuse from a multidisciplined perspective. The Colleges of Medicine,
Agriculture and Education have held seminars and workshops on drug education,
and information on and discussion of problems of drugs are included in courses
on human biology and health, general psychology and social problems. Counseling
services are being provided to try and determine the needs which cause the indi-
vidual to use drugs and therapy is provided for those who need and want it. A
problem faced in the latter area which must be solved some way is the requirement
that therapists must report the identity of drug users to civil authorities which
deters many people who need such help from seeking it.

       Mr. Clay thanked Dr. Singletary for his excellent and timely report and
accepted and ordered filed the President's Report to the Trustees.



       E. Recommendations of the President (PR 2)

       Although the items in PR 2 were routine in nature, President Singletary
did call attention to the persons recommended for retirement, pointing out that
the sum total of service of these 15 individuals came to the rather astounding
figure of over 268 years, with one of the individuals, Bruce Poundstone, having
been with the University for over 41 years.

       Mr. Clay expressed the appreciation of the Board for the loyalty and
devotion of these staff members and asked that appropriate letters be sent to
each one. He then called for any questions which Board members might have
relative to the recommendations and, there being none, on motion duly made,
seconded, and passed, PR 2 was approved as a whole and ordered made an of-
ficial part of the Minutes of the meeting. (See PR 2 at the end of the Minutes.

       F. Approval of Degree Candidates (PR 4)

       Inasmuch as the list of candidates had been mailed to the Board members
in advance of the meeting and there being no questions, on motion by Dr. Nicholas,
seconded by Mrs. Blazer, and passed, the President was authorized to confer on
each individual whose name appeared on the list recommended by the University
Senate the degree for which he had made application upon certification by the
Registrar that all requirements had been satisfactorily fulfilled. (See PR 4 at the
end of the Minutes. )

       G. 1971-72 Meeting Dates Established (PR 5)

       Attention was called to the recommended dates for meetings of the Board
of Trustees and/or Executive Committee during the fiscal year 1971-72. Without
discussion, on motion made, seconded, and carried, the dates as recommended
in PR 5 were approved. (See PR 5 at the end of the Minutes. )

       H. Paul Oberst New Non-Voting Faculty Member of the Board

       President Singletary reported that Professor Paul Oberst of the College of
Law had recently been elected as the non-voting faculty member of the Board of
Trustees for a three-year term beginning July 1, 1971 and ending Jurne 30, 1974.
He will replace Dr. Robert W. Rudd whose term expires June 30, 1971,

       On behalf of the Board, Mr. Clay expressed the thanks of the Board to
Dr. Rudd for his contributions during the past three years and said that he had
been a "tremendous asset". He appointed Mr. Richard Cooper and Mr. Thomas
Bell to draft a resolution on Dr. Rudd to be presented at the next meeting.



       I. Operating Budget for 1971-72 Adopted (PR 6)

       President Singletary explained that copies of the proposed operating
budget for the University for 1971-7Z had been placed in the hands of the Board
members well in advance of the meeting so that they might familiarize them-
selves with its contents. He called attention to his letter of transmittal which
was included in the folders provided each member and a copy of which appears
at the end of the Minutes. He said that in the preparation of the budget he had
been faced with the problem that the resources available are considerably less
than necessary to provide for all the needs. The budget presented represents
Something less than a continuation level for the University. Enrollment increased
on the Lexington and Community College campuses by more than 2, 100 during the
current year and it is expected to increase by almost 2, 000 in 1971-72. These
students are being accepted without corresponding increases in faculty positions
or dollars for the University. Unexpected increases in charges for utilities,
taxes, coal and social security have resulted in salary increases for 1971-72 of
less than would be required to compensate for the increase in the cost of living;
however, it is hoped that the faculty salaries proposed will maintain the Uni-
versity's competitive position with the benchmark institutions. The budget
includes funding for the staff benefit programs previously approved by the Board
of Trustees, including the provision for basic life insurance for all employees of
the University and the beginning of a funded retirement program for the classified
personnel of the University. All debt service obligations are fully funded and the
University will be able to meet its commitments to programs in Allied Health
Professions, Forestry, Mathematics, and Social Professions.

       Dr. Donald Clapp, Budget Director, through the use of two charts, copies
of which are included at the end of the Minutes, graphically illustrated the points
made by President Singletary. One chart showed that since 1967-68 the student
body of the University had increased 50 percent while the educational and general
income had increased by only 40 percent and the general income after cost of
living and fixed costs had increased only 10 percent. Translated into dollars,
the increase in educational and general income during the four-year period had
increased by $23 million while the cost of living and fixed costs had increased
between $17 million and $18 million during this period. He ended his remarks
with the statement that resources available to meet the 50 percent increase in
enrollment had increased by only 10 percent.

       Mr. Clay commended the President, Dr. Clapp and the administration for
their work in the preparation of the budget and called for a motion for adoption.
Mr. Cooper moved that the proposed operating budget for 1971-72 be adopted
under the conditions outlined in the recommendation in PR 6. His motion was
seconded by Mr. Wright and passed. (See PR 6 with attachments at the end of the
Minutes. )

       J. Budget Revisions for 1970-71 Authorized and Approved (PR 7)

The revisions in the 1970-71 budget recommended in PR 7 being routine



in nature, without discussion, on motion by Dr. Nicholas, seconded by Mr.
Wright, and passed, the revisions so recommended were authorized and
approved. (See PR 7 at the end of the Minutes. )

        K. Student Health Insurance Proposal Adopted (PR 8)

        A committee, appointed while Dr. Kirwan was serving as President of
the University to study the whole area of student health programs, recently
submitted its report to President Singletary. The increased cost of health care
has made it prohibitive for the University to provide without charge the health
care necessary and desirable for its students. The committee, broadly repre-
sentative of the campus community and including students, medical, and
administrative staff, recommended in its report a broad, two-part insurance
plan designed to provide comprehensive ambulatory and hospital patient health
care for all, students. The plan was discussed with various segments of the
student body and generally received strong support. Dr. Singletary said,
however, that the recommendation being made to the Board at this time does
not make insurance the only alternative but provides that a student who does not
wish to purchase insurance nmay be relieved of that duty if he can satisfactorily
demonstrate the financial ability to provide for his own ambulatory health care
at the level specified by the committee. It is anticipated that the cost of the
ambulatory portion of the insurance for 1971-77 can be purchased from a
carrier(s) for approximately $7. 00 per semester, $4. 00 per summer term, and
$2. 00 for the intercession.

       Following Dr. Singletary's introductory remarks, Dr. Bosomworth read
the proposed recommendation in PR 8 and strongly recommended approval by
the Board of Trustees. He added that in the event approval is given, a Student
Advisory Committee will be created to determine the nature and range of the
benefits to bie provided.

       Mr. Wendelsdorf reported that the Student Government Senate had con-
sidered the proposal at some length and had indicated its approval. The
Interfraternity Council and the students living in the dormitories have also
endorsed the plan and, in Mr. Wendelsdorf's opinion, support on the part of
the students is almost unanimous,

       On motion duly made, seconded by Mr. Alverson, and passed, the
recommendations in PR 8 relative to student health insurance was approved.
(See PR 8 at the end of the Minutes. )

       L. Interim Financial Report Accepted (FCR 1)

       Without discussion, on motion by Mr. Griffin, seconded by Mrs. Blazer,
and passed, the interim financial report covering the period ending March 31, 1971



was accepted and ordered made a matter of record. (See FCR I at the end of the

        M. Student Code Revision

        Mr. Griffin, Chairman of the Student Code Revision Committee, reported
that his committee had received recommendations for revisions in the present
Student Code from students, from the Student Government, and from the Office of
the Dean of Students. An open hearing was held by the committee and additional
recommendations were received from students and faculty members. The com-
mittee took the various recommendations and suggestions it had received and,
after a thorough and careful evaluation of each one, prepared its recommendations
for changes in the Student Code for presentation to the Board. He said that
several changes were proposed primarily in the interests of clarification of the
present Code. Copies of the revised document were mailed to the Trustees in
advance of the meeting so that all members would be familiar with the proposed
changes. Mr. Griffin called attention to Sections 1. 2a and 1. 2b which have been
added to the present Code. A student charged with engaging in interference,
coercion or disruption which impedes, impairs or disrupts University missions,
processes or functions or interferes with the rights of others on University
property under Section 1. 2a would appear before the University Judicial Board
rather than before the Appeals Board which has jurisdiction when a student is
charged under Section VI of the Code. Section 1. Zb was added to place the student
on more effective notice with regard to narcotics on the campus.

       Mr. Griffin moved that the Code of Student Conduct as proposed in the
document before the Board of Trustees be adopted. His motion was seconded by
Dr. Sears. Mr. Wendelsdorf said he wished to propose several amendments and
requested that the Board members vote for them "for the University's good".
Although each Board member had received a copy of Mr. Wendelsdorf's proposed
amendments to the report of the Student Code Revision Committee a few days
prior to the meeting, he indicated his desire to present the amendments individu-
ally rather than as a whole. The Board agreeing to this procedure, Mr.
Wendelsdorf then gave a brief statement of support for amendments 1. 311 and
1. 32 and moved their adoption (these two amendments and subsequent ones are
contained in Mr. Wendelsdorf's document at the end of the Minutes. ) His motion
died for lack of a second.

       Mr. Bell, saying that he felt the Board should not and could not act on
Mr. Wendelsdorf's amendments without further study, moved to amend Mr.
Griffin's motion so that Mr. Wendelsdorf's amendments might be accepted and
referred to the committee and any action on the Code be postponed until this
committee reported back to the Board at a special called meeting. Mr.
Wendelsdorf seconded the motion and, on roll call vote, it was defeated by a
vote of eight to one with two abstentions.



       Mr. Wendelsdorf then moved adoption of the following amendments:

       1.417    No second.

       1. 432b  Seconded by Mr. Bell. There being only one vote in favor,
                 the motion did not carry.

       1. 434d  Secondeed by Mr. Bell. Mr. Bell voted "aye", others "nay";
                 therefore, motion defeated.

       1. 436   No second.

       1.45     No second.

       1. 51    Mr. Bell seconded. There being only one aye vote, the
                 motion failed to carry.

       3. 13    Mr. Wendelsdorf requested a roil call vote on this
                amendment but there being no second to his motion, the
                vote was unnecessary.

       At this point, Mr. Wendelsdorf indicated that in order to save time he
would present the remainder of the amendments in a block. He moved adoption
of amendments 3. 15, 3. 23, 3. 319, 3. 4, 3. 5, 3. 6, Articles IV and VI. There
being no second, Mr. Wendelsdorf's motion failed to carry.

       Mr. Clay then called for a vote on the original motion and second to adopt
the Code of Student Conduct as recommended by the Student Code Revision Com-
mittee. All voting members present voted "aye" and the Code was adopted.

       Mr. Bell then moved that Mr. Wendelsdorf's amendments be received
and forwarded to the Student Code Revision Committee for consideration at the
appropriate time. His motion was seconded by Mrs. Clark, and all present voted
in favor.

       N. Resolution Introduced by Mr. Wendelsdorf

       Mr. Wendelsdorf requested permission to read a resolution which he was
presenting as a student Trustee (a copy of the resolution appears at the end of the
Minutes). Following the reading of the resolution, Mr. Wendelsdorf moved its
adoption. There being no second, the resolution failed of adoption.

       0. Meeting Adjourned

It having been determined that there was no further business to come before



the meeting, on motion duly made, seconded, and carried, the meeting adjourned
at 3:35 p. m.

                                           Respectfully submitted,

                                           Lucile T. Blazer, Secretary
                                           Board of Trustees

(PRs 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, FCR 1, Code of Student Conduct, amendments to the
report of the Student Code Revision Committee, and the resolution which follow

Trustees. )



                             May 4, 1971


     Gov. Louie B. Nunn has asked the Appalachian Regional Commis-
sion for more than $1.5 million to expand health services in East
Kentucky. In addition to building new health facilities and ex-
panding and renovating old ones, a large part of the funds would
support programs to train health professionals who would train in
or return to the area. The programs would be carried out in co-
operation with the University. The new projects include:

     --$108,400 for a health professions scholarship program at
the University, to be offered to students from low-income families
in the region who wish to return there to practice.

     --$142,588 for a clinical associate manpower program here to
prepare health workers to assist practicing physicians. The state
would contribute $1,200.

     --$17,213 to plan and implement a master's degree family nurse
practitioner training program with Vanderbilt and UK.


     Dr. Leland Smith, associate professor of education, has published
"A 5-Year Follow-Up Study of High Ability Achieving and Non-achieving
College Freshmen," in which he studied University students who had
scored a percentile range of 95 to 99 on the College Qualification
Tests, with pertinent psychosocial data collected by means of a
questionnaire. He learned that after five years achievers were
significantly more likely to have obtained a college degree than the
non-achievers, that more achievers than non-achievers are still en-
rolled in some capacity, in medical school or graduate school, that
four (of 28 who responded to the questionnaire) achievers are candi-
dates for the Ph.D, three are senior medical students, six have earned
the MA degree, one has a law degree, 12 hold the BA or BS degree, and
two are undergraduates. Of the 22 non-achievers responding one is a
Ph.D candidate, four have earned the MA degree, one is pursuing the
MA and four hold undergraduate degrees. Seven are still actively
pursuing undergraduate degrees, and five no longer are enrolled in a
degree program. Dr. Smith learned that the non-achievers were signi-
ficantly more dissatisfied with their income in relation to their
perceived ability and potential than were the achievers, even though
64 per cent of the achievers were still in the process of pursuing
advanced degrees.

     Twenty community pharmacists are taking part in a College of
Pharmacy program designed to provide the student a real-life learn-
ing experience by applying the basic principles taught in the class-
room to everyday problems encountered in the practice of pharmacy.
The professional function of the pharmacist is emphasized, particularly
the pharmacist's role in communicating with the patient relative to
health matters and the use of the Family Medication Record System. In
addition, the student has the opportunity to communicate with physi-
cians and other health professionals. The course, entitled "Community
Practice Clerkship," was initiated last year as an experiment, with
six students and six pharmacists. It has since expanded to accommo-
date 24 students, utilizing 24 voluntary pharmacists-instructors, for
the fall semester, according to Dean Joseph V. Swintosky. The student
spends three hours two afternoons each week in a community pharmacy,
which serves as the teaching laboratory. The instructor in the "labo-
ratory," one of the 20 practicing pharmacists, also holds an appoint-
ment as a voluntary faculty member. During the semester the student
rotates trough three different pharmacies, although only one student
is assigned at a time to an instructor. The student maintains a log
of his activities, with special emphasis on the problems he encounters.
At the end of the course, the student writes an evaluation of his
learning experience.


     Two new buildings at Henderson Community College were formally
dedicated on April 22. The total cost of the two structures is
$1,215,638. The total square footage is 32,700. The first building
is the Student Center, which houses a book store, snack bar, large
meeting room, music room and a locker and shower room. The other
structure is the Arts and Sciences building, which contains class-
rooms, office space, nursing education laboratory and art room. Addi-
tional buildings at the college include the administration building
which was the original structure, and three temporary frame buildings.
President Otis A. Singletary was the speaker for both the dedication
and the luncheon. The luncheon was hosted by the College Foundation
and was held at the First Christian Church. The temporary buildings
at Henderson house a new reading and communications laboratory, stu-
dent government activities area, and student publications offices.
Other improvements at Henderson include an expansion of the college's
library, currently situated in the administration building.


     The Russian national basketball team, on an eight-game tour of
the U.S., will make a two-day stop in Lexington May 19-20. Scotty
Baesler, director of the Central Kentucky Amateur Union, said the team
will play at Memorial Coliseum Wednesday, May 19, at 8:15 p.m. The
Russian team will play the Lexington Marathon Oilers, runners-up in
the AAU national tournament held last month in London. The team will
arrive May 19 for a tour of Central Kentucky.

     The University Gymnastics Team won first place in the Kentucky
Intercollegiate Gymnastics meet held at Georgetown College with a
total of 93.3 points. Of the other three teams competing, Eastern
University placed second with 84.3 points, Georgetown College placed
third with 52.3 points, and Murray State University placed fourth
with 16.8 points. Kelley McIntosh, a freshman physical education
major from Louisville, was the outstanding gymnist, earning 40.5
points. Shannon Reynolds, a freshman engineering major from Lexing-
ton, placed fifth, and Jim Kendig, junior physical education major
from Covington, placed sixth. This is the first year the Gymnastics
Team, under the direction of Jim Nance, instructor in the Department
of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, has competed in colle-
giate competition.


     Graduate students in sociology will interview a number of persons
in Lexington and in Powell county to gather data this summer for a
study conducted by Dr. Grant Youmans, professor of rural sociology.
Persons to be interviewed will be between the ages of 20-29 and age
60 and over. Information collected from the younger and older per-
sons will be concerned with their satisfactions or dissatisfactions
with living conditions, such as community activities, family life,
economic and political conditions. Findings from the study will aid
organizations and groups in planning programs to improve the quality
of life in Kentucky and elsewhere? Dr. Youmans-said.  Dr. Youmans also
is the author of numerous publications regarding rural youth and aged
persons. The studies relate to the health, economic and psychological
problems of the aged, and education and work opportunities of youth.


     About 100 of the sta e's brightest high school juniors attended
the High School Juniors CAnference in mid-April. At a luncheon in
the Alumni House they heard Dr. Alvin Morris, vice president for
administration, ask the question, "How does it feel to be special?"
Dr. Morris told the high schoolers that since they were selected to
attend the conference on the basis of academic excellence, that being
special had its problems as well as profits: "The first problem you
will encounter is a matter of expectation. Your parents, teachers
and peers will, for example, expect you to be Number One in your senior
class if you were Number One in your junior class, as are a great num-
ber of those present. They will expect you to maintain your habits of
excellence throughout college and on into private life. Most of you
will do so." The project is designed to introduce promising high
school students to life at the University. The three-day conference
was sponsored by the Office of Pre-Admissions.

     Henderson, Elizabethtown, and Maysville Community Colleges have
been chosen to participate in Project Focus, a nationwide study to
examine changes in community and junior colleges--the direction of
change, the facilitators of change, and the impediments to change.
The study will involve about 20,000 students and 10,000 faculty mem-
bers at 100 two-year colleges across the nation. Sponsored by the
American Association of Junior Colleges, it is funded by a grant from
the W. K. Kellogg Foundation with the questionnaires to be furnished
by the American College Testing Program.


     The new building at Southeast Community College, used for the
first time this semester, features a student grill and lounge, a book--
store, an office for the business manager, three classrooms, ten fac-
ulty offices, a little theater, a conference room, and a faculty lounge.
The dedication of the building is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11.



     The University Drug Education Committee appointed in early
February and made up of faculty, students and staff members, has
made its report. Dr. Robert Straus, chairman of the Department of
Behavioral Science in the College of Medicine, served as chairman.
The committee was charged with evaluating existing Universiry pro-
grams related to drug education and encouraging the implementation
of new ones as indicated. It was requested that emphasis be placed
on methods by which these programs might become more widely known
and utilized. A report summarizing its deliberations was submitted
by the committee to the president's office in mid-April. Recogniz-
ing that there is widespread interest in the report, both on the
campus and in the larger community, and wishing to avoid confusing
speculation that might otherwise be created as to its contents, the
president made the entire report available to the University commu-
nity and the general public. While the report was submitted as re-
quested, it was pointed out that it does not represent an official
statement of the University's position on drugs and drug education.
