The minutes of November 14, 1966 were approved as circulated.

The Chairman expressed to the Senate the sincere regret of President Oswald
at being unable to be present at the meeting due to his representation of the
University at the commemorative service for Paul Blazer, deceased, of Ashland,
however, he had offered to meet with the Senate on Wednesday. The Chairman
exercised the privilege of the Chair and called another meeting of the Senate on
Wednesday, December 14, 1966 at 4:00 p.m. in the Court Room of the new Law

The Chairman of the Program Committee provided a substitute program for this
meeting——a report by the Provost of the University on the progress and implementa—
tion of the academic plan.

The Provost gave his impressions of the present status of the several
recommendations which were made to the University Senate, to the College Faculties,
and to the Administration, at the University Senate meeting of November 22, 1965

which he felt were proper for his comment and about which he was knowledgeable.

Dr. Cochran presented the following remarks concerning the implementation
of the 20 recommendations to the University Senate.

1. the University requirements for each baccalaureate degree program
(including the General Studies Component and its eight areas) have
been implemented and are presently in operation;

the procedure to be used for the approval of new courses and programs
and for changes in courses and programs has been followed with the
occasional exception that a college has failed to circulate to the
entire teaching faculty of the University some proposed courses or
course changes. A circulation to the entire teaching faculty is

quirements, will become effective September, 1967;

rules governing the study of a foreign language have been implemented;

limited progress has occurred in the renumbering of professional
courses to the 800—900 series;

status of the basis for representation on and composition of the

until such time as the need for additional residential facilities
becomes more acute there may not be any real activity toward the
South Campus residential campus concept;

the status of extension offerings, correspondence courses, night
classes is unknown;

the evening class program is being printed as a part of the regular
class schedule book;

whether or not the schedule of correspondence courses is being
distributed to all members of the faculty for their use in advising
students is unknown;

the recommendation that elementary and junior high teachers be
required to register in the College of Education and that those not

the University Senate Committee on Student Organizations and Social
Activities has been disbanded and a University Senate Advisory
Committee for Student Affairs has been established;

the studies to be carried out by the Advisory Committee on the
Honors Program are presently under way and are not yet completed;

to what extent the University Senate Advisory Committee on Community
Colleges has explored with the administration of the Community College
System the equivalence of cultural and intellectual advantages in she
two locations is not known.

The Provost moved to the recommendations to the college faculties and
reported that

in the College of Arts and Sciences


(a) a School of Fine Arts consisting of the departments of Art, Music and
Theater Arts has been implemented;

(b) a Department of Speech has not yet been implemented;

(0) a School of Communications to embrace the departments of Journalism
and Radio, Television and Films, has been implemented;

an evaluation of all undergraduate major programs with respect to
quality and relevance is in varying stages of implementation;

the recommendation that the appropriate faculty groups consider the
desirability of new courses in the areas of literature, music, art,
biology, math and philosophy, and the behavioral sciences to be offered
as parts of the General Studies component to limited numbers of students
on trial basis has been followed in that Area VIII, Behavioral Sciences,
has been developed and implemented, a new math sequence has been added
in Area I, HYG 110 has been added in two of the Biological Sciences
sequences, an addition has been made to the Social Sciences grouping,
and a rather complete reworking of the Humanities offerings has been
accomplished. A group in the College of Arts and Sciences is continuing
the study of the content of the General Studies courses since they are,
with the exception of Economics, Arts and Sciences courses;


in the College of Agriculture and Home Economics


the Home Economics curriculum has been reworked considerably and now
carries something of the same format as the programs in the agricultural
component of the College of Agriculture and will probably be reworked
further as the program develops;

in the College of Engineering


the college has met the decreasing enrollment in Mining Engineering by
combining some two—year terminal programs in the community colleges and
by incorporating the mining option into the Civil Engineering department;

in the College of Education


the college has studied and evaluated its programs in elementary, junior
high, and secondary education and these pregrams have been approved by the
University Senate Council.












































































Minutes of the University Senate, December 12, 1966 (con't)

the College of Commerce complied with the recommendation for name change
to the College of Business and Economics; and further, it has accomplish-
ed a thorough reconstruction of its undergraduate curricula and organiza—
tion into a system of departments;

in the Graduate School


a system of evaluation reviews of existing programs by outside panel~
ists to provide that each program be reviewed not less frequently
than every five years has been initiated. The first outside panel
has been to the campus but that report has not yet been received.
Funds are allocated for at least three or four more reviews during
the present academic year;

discontinuance of the Doctor of Engineering degree has been accom—
plished and replaced with the Ph.D, with specialization in Physical

new doctoral programs have been approved in German, Mechanical
Engineering, Civil Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, and Soil
Sciences; in or out of committee study also are programs in Plant
Physiology, Plant Pathology, Biophysics, and Spanish; further,
several other programs are in some degree of development at the
present time;

the policy statement on professional master's degrees in areas
where this is the usual terminal degree is being followed in all
the considerations;

in the communities where establishment of Resident Graduate Training
Centers was considered the situation was not favorable;

the rank of associate membership in the Graduate Faculty has received
no formal consideration to this time.

In the recommendations involving two or more colleges


the Department of Physical Education has been transferred to the
College of Education with change in name of the department to Division
of Health, Physical Education and Recreation;

the degree program in Medical Technology has been transferred from
the College of Arts and Sciences to the Medical Center and resides
in the School of Allied Health Personnel;

4&5. while uncertain of the breadth of discussion between Architecture

and Agriculture as it relates to program and landscape architecture,
consideration is being given in connection with the development
of the planning program in the School of Architecture, as is the

matter of a building engineering program between Architecture and

6. while uncertain of the involvement of Arts and Sciences in the
discussions, groups in the Colleges of Agriculture and Business and
Economics have been considering the interrelationships of their
offerings and needs in the field of economics as they relate to
instructional programs, research and extension programs, and these
considerations are continuing;

7. the transfer of technical courses in secretarial practice to the
Technical Institute program has not been accomplished. The existing
courses are now renumbered and are being offered in the College of
Education as indicated under 3 above;

8. uncertainty was expressed that each college faculty has organized to
accord with the Governing Regulations as set forth in this item;

9. uncertainty was expressed that Graduate Faculty members within a
given college had organized for the purpose of considering the graduate
program within that college, and for its presentation to the Graduate

In the Administrative recommendations, Dr. Cochran reported that recommenda—
tions on the Library are continuing; he is unaware of any activity in the
Museum program; the creation and operation of research institutes is being
followed; the transfer of the Kentucky Geological Survey to the Office of the
Executive Vice President has been accomplished; the recommendations for
establishment of an Instructional Resources Center, full support for the
state-wide ETV network, and appointment of a coordinator of educational
television, are being consistently studied; that there is some funding for
the establishment of the Center and since it is likely that instructional
television will figure prominently in such a Center during the first two
years, it has been necessary to look at these recommendations as a total
package and no administrative decision has been reached; the recommendations
for continued study of the title series and the area committees is continuing;
encouragement for the establishment of endowed chairs is a priority item in
the extra—mural funding; there is support for increased secretarial assistance
and the executive secretary—type of appointments in the departments; there

is movement toward appointment of acting chairmen in the summer for those on
lOemonths' appointments; and the recommendation for the preparation of an
Administrative Manual is being followed.

In summation, Dr. Cochran stated that he thought the recommendations on
establishment of University academic requirements, and recommendations on the
establishment of general college requirements throughout the University have
been met; that the undergraduate degree programs of all applicable colleges
have been acted on finally with the possible exception of the College of
Nursing; and that the departmental major programs are complete and formalized
and will be published in the next issue of the General Catalogue with the

exception of the College of Arts and Sciences which remains incomplete.





















































































Minutes of the University Senate, December 12, 1966 (con't)

He then enumerated several matters which will require the attention
of the faculty beyond the present time, namely,

the need for strong improvement in the student advising system.

He stated that certain attempts were made to improve the system

last summer and again this fall, he pointed up some deficiences

on the part of the advisers during these periods, and reported

that it is planned this year to make the job of advising one of

the special items in the merit reviews and to try to identify

those who have worked effectively in the student advising program
and give them appropriate recognition for their work. He further
reported that consideration is being given to an experimental
program whereby limited numbers of graduate and undergraduate
students might, under the supervision of an able faculty member, be
used in the advising of undergraduate students, serving more in

the role of a check to determine that students are taking what they
should be taking at the time they should be taking it. He indicated
a hope that some of those departments with a large number of students
and a small number of faculty might be willing to try such students
on an experimental basis to determine its merit;

improvement in undergraduate teaching. He stated that while the
University has had the reputation over the years of being a very
effective undergraduate teaching institution, as a result of his
attendance at conferences over the nation during the past year

and his reflections upon our achievements in relation to what had
been reported in these conferences, he felt that we were falling
short, particularly in the experimental area; that no real progress
has been made in the instructional television area, in the area

of programmed instruction, in teaching machines and its variations,
in the testing and evaluation of computer—assisted instruction, in
independent study programs, in the incorporation, in a regular
organized way, of off—campus activities into a total instructional
program such as is done at Western Michigan and Antioch, in formal
consideration of international education or the study abroad factor;

the liberal arts education phase of the University. He stated that
a number of large enrollment institutions have taken steps to estab-
lish within that institution the equivalent of liberal arts colleges,
e.g., the Rutgers approach, San Diego, Santa Cruz, Florida State,
Kansas; that we need to look at our own curricula with this approach
in mind, and to some degree at our organization, to determine if

we are truly offering to our students in the College of Arts and
Sciences a genuine opportunity for a liberal arts education; that

if the faculty will examine the Catalogue, it will note the relative—
ly few courses that are specifically and especially designed for
upper division students. He said that we move very promptly from a
freshmen—sophomore level into the 500 level where there is a mix

of graduate and undergraduate students, and that this, coupled with
lack of definition of anything other than the major program, provides
some cause for concern as to whether this is the proper set of
offerings and the proper organization if we wish to offer a real
liberal arts education opportunity.
