       D.    President's Report to the Trustees  (PR 1)

       President Singletary reminded the Trustees that the next Board
meeting will be on August 18. He then said he was delighted to make
another announcement of great importance: the University now has errors
and omissions liability insurance coveraqe for all employees; however, it
is at a substantial increase in cost.

       President Singletary reviewed briefly some of the items in his
report to the Trustees and called special attention to: (1) the
dedication of the Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center on June 5, (2)
the ground breaking ceremony for the campus of the newest community
college at Owensboro on June 22, (3) the ground breaking ceremony for
the new academic building at Lexington Community College, named for
Richard P. Moloney, Sr., which was held on June 18, (4) the 1987
Governor's Scholars Program on campus which will run through July 22,
and (5) the new scholarship program named for Lyman V. Ginger, former
dean of the College of Education.

       E.    Personnel Actions  (PR 2)

       In recommending that the appointments and staff changes in PR 2 be
approved, President Singletary said he was pleased to announce the
appointment of "a very promising, young professor of Mathematics" who
will also have some administrative duties, President-Elect David P.
Roselle. On motion made by Mr. Clay, seconded by Mr. Ramsey and carried,
the appointments and staff changes recommended in PR 2 were approved.
(See PR 2 at the end of the Minutes.)

       F.    Supplemental Personnel Recommendations of the President (PR
3A)

       President Singletary moved the approval of PR 3A and indicated his
pleasure in recommending the appointment of Professor John Thomas Bryans
in the Department of Veterinary Science as the newest Alumni Professor,
effective July 1, 1987. The motion, made by Professor Wilson and
seconded by Mrs. Hayes, carried unanimously. Professor Bryans, who was
in attendance was asked to stand and be recognized, following which he
was given a round of applause. (See PR 3A at the end of the Minutes.)

       G.    Operating Budget for 1987-88  (PR 3B)

       In opening his presentation, President Singletary referred to the
1987-88 Operating Budget as a continuation budget.  He stated that with
the adoption of last year's operating budget, the University was looking
forward to a very positive biennium. He pointed out, however, that the
relatively optimistic position has deteriorated markedly. He then
reminded the Trustees that in December a nonrecurring cut of $5.5 million
in state appropriation was announced: $4.5 million of program support




 






- 3 -



and $1.0 million in debt service.  He added that in the development of
this year's budget, the University was confronted with the uncomfortable
position of not knowing what the State revenue picture would be for
1987-88 nor if the University would be faced with another cut.
Therefore, he continued, the University based the budget decision on the
full appropriation of $233 million but felt there was no choice but to
reserve at least the program portion of the 1986-87 cut--$4.5
million--for what the University felt was the very real possibility of a
recurring cut in that amount.  Also, he said, the University felt it had
to restore its operating contingency to at least a $2.8 million level.
He continued that these turned out to be propitious decisions because on
May 28, after the budget went to print, the University was advised that
the two percent nonrecurring cut to higher education in 1986-87 would
become recurring in 1987-88. At the University of Kentucky, that
recurring cut is $4.9 million rather than the $4.5 million reserved
because the cut is on the 1987-88 appropriation and is based on the
formula use policy. Further, the universities were directed to hold in
reserve until at least October an additional one percent of their
appropriation which is $2.7 million for the University of Kentucky.

       President Singletary explained that in order to be prepared for
that potential reduction, the decisions in developing the budget were
very difficult and provided very unsatisfactory results.  He noted that
to deal with the 1987-88 cut the University was able to provide only a 4
percent average salary increase, no increases for operating expenses and
no funds for program improvement except in the Community College System
which continues to have substantial enrollment increases.  He pointed out
that during the 1986-87 fiscal year the average faculty salary on the
Lexington Campus fell $3,156 behind the University benchmark salaries
compared to $2,718 the previous year and predicted that the benchmark gap
will undoubtedly widen in 1987-88.  He reported that the salaries at the
community colleges are about $1,000 behind their benchmarks and that
staff salaries have continued to slip further behind market levels.

       President Singletary then pointed out that some of the most
promising asoects of the budget are in special State appropriations:
salary catch-up in the Community College System; additional support for
the Owensboro program; $3.2 million for the Center for Robotics; debt
service for the Owensboro Campus, the buildings at Lexington,
Elizabethtown, Hazard, Prestonsburg, and Madisonville community colleges,
an agricultural engineering building, the new robotics center building,
the regulatory services facility; and for the academic equipment bond
issue. In addition, the Community College System was able to fund some
program enhancement--essentially faculty and staff catch-up positions.

       President Singletary concluded his remarks by saying he hoped the
Board would approve the 1987-88 Operating Budget and asked Mr. Carter to
review the budgetary process.

       Using a series of charts, Acting Vice President Carter provided
detailed information on the budgetary process and a general overview of
how the 1987-88 budget ($551.8 million) relates to the planning
objectives and goals adopted by the Board of Trustees for the 1986-87
biennium.  He also reviewed the major sources of income and expenditures
by categories, indicating the State's appropriation to the budget is
$228.6 million (41.8 percent); University Hospital funds contribute 19.2
percent ($106.2 million); student fees 9.2 percent; and auxiliary




 







4



enterprise operations another 4.8 percent.  The balance of the budget
comes from federal appropriations, endowment income, investments, gifts
and grants, sales and services, fund balances, restricted funds, and
affiliated corporations.

       There being no further comments, Mr. McCowan called for a motion.
Mr. Clay moved that the budget be adopted and that the Chairman of the
Board be authorized to negotiate and execute contracts with the
administrative officers providing for the terms and conditions of their
employment and benefits. The motion was seconded by Mr. Forgy and
unanimously carried. (See PR 3B at the end of the Minutes.)

       H.    Appointment of Director, Elizabethtown Community College (PR
4A)

       President Singletary recommended that Dr. Charles E. Stebbins be
named Director of Elizabethtown Community College, effective July 1,
1987. Chancellor Wethinqton briefly reviewed Dr. Stebbins credentials
and background.  He indicated that the appointment had the strong support
of the community as well as the community college staff and that he was
pleased to endorse the recommendation. Mr. Wilcoxson so moved. The
motion was seconded by Senator Huddleston and carried unanimously. (See
PR 4A at the end of the Minutes.)

       I.   Appointment of Director, Ashland Community College (PR 4B)

       President Singletary then recommended that Dr. Anthony L. Newberry
be named Director of Ashland Community College, effective July 1, 1987.
Following Chancellor Wethington's review of Dr. Newberry's credentials,
he pointed out that Dr. Newberry has demonstrated his leadership ability
in the Community College System by excellent performance in the various
positions he has held at Jefferson and Southeast Community Colleges since
1976. On motion made by Mr. Farmer, seconded by Mr. Ramsey and passed,
approval was given to the appointment of Dr. Anthony L. Newberry as
Director of Ashland Community College.   (See PR 4B at the end of the
Minutes.)

       J.    Appointment of Dean of College of Communications (PR 5A)

       Stating that PR 5A was another administrative appointment,
President Singletary recommended that Dr. Douglas A. Boyd be named Dean
of the College of Communications, effective July 1, 1987. Chancellor
Gallaher reviewed Dr. Boyd's credentials and background, noting that Dr.
Boyd was an extremely strong candidate and the first choice of the
committee. Chancellor Gallaher stated that he was pleased to endorse
President Singletary's recommendation that Dr. Boyd be named Dean of the
College of Communications. The motion, which was made by Professor
Wilson and seconded by Dr. Pisacano, carried. (See PR 5A at the end of
the Minutes.)

       K. Naming of University Room (PR SB)

       President Singletary indicated his pleasure in recommending that

motion was seconded by Professor Betts and unanimously carried.
Professor Betts also expressed his pleasure of the appropriateness of

As the eighth president of the University of Kentucky, your eighteen

During your tenure, record numbers of students attended the University
and received degrees. An unprecedented number of buildings were
constructed and the University reached truly astounding new heights in
private fund raising.

The first endowed chairs became a reality and academic standards have
been significantly tightened during the Singletary years.  The University
has taken its rightful place among the nation's top research institutions
and you have provided the leadership for the establishment of several
research centers destined for national and international renown.

Your support of the arts has been most appropriately recognized by the
university community with the dedication of the Otis A. Singletary Center
for the Arts.

We shall never forget your gracious, charming, and lovely Gloria who
presided over Maxwell Place with such decorum.  And we shall long
remember the positive impact she has had on the Lexington arts community.

In many ways, we are saddened that our paths must now diverge.  But we
are grateful that eighteen years ago you came our way and we now bid you
a warmly affectionate farewell. Well done, good friend.  And Godspeed.

       On motion made by Mr. Clay, seconded by Mr. Rose and carried, the
resolution was adopted following which President Singletary was given a
standing ovation.

       SS.  Portrait of President Otis A. Singletary Accepted

       Mr. McCowan asked Mrs. Gloria Singletary to join him in the
unveiling of President Singletary's portrait.  The portrait will hang in
the Old Board Room in the Administration Building with the portraits of
the former presidents. He reported that the committee, composed of
Edythe Hayes, Brereton Jones, Tracy Farmer, and Ray Betts, had
commissioned the portrait to be painted by Mr. Norman Dickinson and
recommended that the portrait be accepted.  On motion made by Mrs. Hayes,
seconded by Mr. Forgy and carried, the oil portrait of President
Singletary was accepted.
