       D.    President's Consent Agenda

       President Wethington said that given the instructions by the Board at the last meeting,
there are three items on the Consent Agenda:

             Approval of the Minutes,
             PR 5A - Candidates for Degrees in the University System, and
             PR 6A - Written Statement of Institutional Commitment to Graduate Medical

      President Wethington suggested that the three items be handled at one time at the
beginning of the meeting unless a Board member wished to have an item pulled from the
Consent Agenda.

      Mr. Miles asked for a motion to approve the President's Consent Agenda. Mr. Guthrie
moved approval. The motion, seconded by Ms. Wilson, carried. (See PR 5A and PR 6A at the
end of the Minutes.)

      E.    President's Report to the Board of Trustees (PR 1)

      President Wethington called attention to the following items in PR 1:

      1. The University's new supercomputer has pushed UK into the top 10 among academic
          computing centers in the nation and among the top 200 academic computing centers

      2. The U.S. News and World Report has ranked the University of Kentucky Hospital in
          the top 50 in the country in two different specialties; orthopedics and cancer care.
          The Markey Cancer Center, ranked 18th, is listed in the top 20 for cancer care for the
          second consecutive year.

      3. The University of Kentucky's Young Women in Science Program, developed and led
          by the UK Center on Drug and Alcohol Research and supported by a $1.29 million
          grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, welcomed its second group of 26
          women from 13 southeastern Kentucky counties. This program encourages young
          women from Appalachia to pursue scientific careers in drug research.

      4. The Kentucky Geological Survey has secured more than $500,000 in funding for
          water resources research.

      5. The UK Children's Hospital was a beneficiary of the annual Children's Miracle
          Network campaign again this year. The total support to UK, which is in its 13th year
          of the program, now approaches $6.67 million.

      President Wethington asked the members to read the other items in the report at their
leisure. He also mentioned that items A and B in his report, the Robinson's Scholars Program
and the Capital Campaign Kickoff, would be at the end of his report.

       F.    Personnel Actions (PR 2)

       President Wethington recommended that approval be given to the appointments, actions
and/or other staff changes which require Board action; and that the report relative to
appointments and/or changes already approved by the administration be accepted. Mr. Williams
moved approval. The motion, seconded by Ms. Wilson, passed. (See PR 2 at the end of the

       President Wethington noted that the retirement of Edward A. Carter is a part of PR 2.
Mr. Carter is retiring after 16 years and nine months of consecutive service and 33 years and ten
months of total service to the University of Kentucky. He reported that Mr. Carter will not retire
until the end of December, and he has agreed to a one-year post-retirement appointment on a
part-time basis beyond that date. President Wethington thanked Mr. Carter for his significant
contributions to the University of Kentucky and asked him if he would like to make any

      Mr. Carter said that it had been a real pleasure working for the University and in higher
education finance for 38 years, and there is not a single moment he would change. He received a
round of applause from the Board members.

      G.    Proposed Amendments to the Governing Regulations (PR 3A!

      President Wethington stated that PR 3A is the official document that represents the Board
committee changes that have been recommended to the Board. The recommendation is that the
proposed amendments to the Governing Regulations be received for preliminary consideration
and at the next regular meeting of the Board of Trustees, be included on the agenda for final
action. President Wethington reviewed two editorial changes he made in the document. He
noted that the new committee structure would be put in place after the September meeting,
pending Board approval.

      Mr. Grayson stated that he would like to give unlimited terms for the chairperson of the
Board. In his opinion, if the Board has a good leader, they should keep that leader.

      Mr. Miles asked for a motion to approve PR 3A. Dr. Mather moved approval. Mrs. Sims
seconded the motion, and it carried. (See PR 3A at the end of the Minutes.)

      President Wethington announced that Mr. and Mrs. Tracy Farmer were in the audience
and asked that Mr. Chellgren, Chairperson of the Finance Committee, be allowed to address FCR
15, the Tracy Farmer Gift.

      H.    Tracy Farmer Gift (FCR 15)

      Mr. Chellgren stated that the Finance Committee unanimously recommended to the
Board for consideration a gift from Tracy Farmer of Midway, Kentucky in the amount of $2
million to create and endow the Tracy Farmer Center for the Environment. He moved the
adoption of FCR 15. The motion, seconded by Dr. Stumbo, passed unanimously. (See FCR 15
at the end of the Minutes.)


- 4 -

       Mr. Wilcoxson commented that it was an honor having the opportunity to serve on the
Board with Mr. Farmer. He noted that on many occasions Mr. Farmer's experience and expertise
spilled over to help the Board on many decisions they had to make during that time. He said Mr.
Farmer always did what he thought was best for the University of Kentucky, and he was an
invaluable Board member.

       Governor Breathitt commented that Mr. Farmer exemplifies the level of support that a
former Board member should continue to have for the University of Kentucky. He said that Mr.
Farmer's fidelity and love for the University continues since the day he left the Board in 1991
and that he has set a good example for all of the Trustees who will be leaving the Board.

      Mr. Farmer thanked the Board for the best years of his life while serving on the Board.
He stated that he and Carol hold the University in trust and that they trust President Wethington.
He commended President Wethington for the great job he has done for the University. He noted
that the employees are the university's greatest asset and that he and Carol are very grateful to
give this money to this new Center. Mr. Farmer stated that this would not be the final gift for the
Environmental Center and that he and Carol hope to be involved in it more in the future.

      Mr. Farmer received a round of applause and a standing ovation.

      President Wethington stated that the Tracy Fanner Center for the Environment offers
some wonderful opportunities for the University of Kentucky. He noted that this gift gives the
University an opportunity to pull together some of the significant resources that already exist and
focus them on environmental issues, concerns and research impacting the environment which
will be a welcome addition to the state and to the nation. He thanked Mr. and Mrs. Farmer for
their generous gift to the University.

      I.    Community College System (PR 4)

      There were no items to report from the Community College System.

      J.    Capital Campaign Kickoff September 14-16. 2000 (PR IB)

      President Wethington asked Mr. Terry Mobley to give a report on the activities for the
weekend of September 14-17, the Capital Campaign Kickoff.

      Mr. Mobley said that September 14-17 will be one of the most significant and interesting
weekends in the life of the University. He distributed a copy of the activities to the Board and
invited them to participate in the events. He reviewed the activities scheduled for the weekend
and offered to assist the members of the Board with any arrangements they may need. He
pointed out that the goal will be announced at the Friday kickoff luncheon and stressed the
importance of the Board's attendance.

      President Wethington commended Mr. Mobley and his staff for their good work and said
this will be the largest single fund raising effort in the Commonwealth of Kentucky once it is
announced. He said that the Board's support and attendance is needed to make this campaign
kickoff a success.

      K.    Robinson Scholars' Program (PR IA)

      President Wethington asked Mr. Ed Carter to give a report on the Robinson Scholars'
Program. He noted that this program is being funded by proceeds from mining that the
University has been doing in the outlying areas of Robinson Forest.

      Area of Emphasis

8 To provide financial aid to mountain region
  students to attend the University of Kentucky,
  including the University of Kentucky Community

President Wethington asked that a scholarship
program be developed to help the youth in the
29 county Appalachian region who might
otherwise be unable to attend college.

With the President's guidance the Robinson Scholars
  Program was developed and implemented.

The primary purpose of the Robinson Scholars
  Program was to make an impact on the college
  going rate of high school graduates in Eastern

Two principles guided the design of the program.


- 9 -

      Guiding Principles
  1. The target student population - probably not attend
  college without the program -- needed intervention
  into the cycle of poverty and low academic
  achievement characterizing much of the region.
  Target population would be first generation
  college students who lack hope, interest,
  motivation, knowledge, academic preparation
  and/or financial means to pursue a college degree.

      Guiding Principles

  2. A scholarship would not be sufficient to assist
    the target population in earning a college
    Program designed to address the needs of the
    student while they are completing high school;
    assisting them in making a successful transition
    to college life; and encourage continued success
    throughout their college career.

      Selection Process

X Eighth grade students are self nominated or
  by teachers and/or counselors
* Those students are asked to apply for the

       In conclusion, Mr. Carter said that a good presentation is always followed by a good
solicitation. He reminded the Board that a $210,000 gift to the endowment would support one
student for four years. He noted that there are currently three hundred and sixty four students in
the program. Some are seniors in high school this year, and the first class will be on campus
next fall. He then entertained questions from the Board.

       Mr. Guthrie said that the University is doing a lot of very significant things; however, this
one has to rank towards the top of the list. He mentioned the program's reach to Kentuckians
who would not normally be given this opportunity. And, the big plus is the opportunity for them
to return home to help and still cultivate Eastern Kentucky. He said the program is remarkable,
and the Board would like to work in some way to continue and assist. He congratulated
everyone involved with the program on a daily basis. It has to be stressful at times but very
heartwarming to watch these young people.

       President Wethington noted that the program is endowed. He said his intentions are to
put in place a program that would go on indefinitely. Unfortunately, it cannot go on at the level
that it first started. This program is an example of some of the benefits that the University of
Kentucky is providing to people all across the state. This money did not have to be used for
Robinson Scholars. It did not have to be used for East Kentuckians who need some opportunity
to go on to the University of Kentucky. But that is what the Board chose. He pointed out that it
takes people like those involved in the program to carry it out and to make it happen. The
administration and the Board can only recommend and make policy. He commended the
Robinson Scholars' Program staff and especially Ed Carter and his staff who have helped to
make this happen over the last few years. He encouraged the Board to follow the program. He
thanked Mr. Carter and the Robinson Scholars' Program staff and asked them to keep up the
good work. They received a round of applause.

      A discussion followed regarding the percentage of students in the Program and the
thousands of young Kentuckians that could benefit from such a program if it were available for

       Mr. Miles asked Dr. Stumbo if he would like to make any comments.

       Dr. Stumbo replied that he was hoping Mr. Miles would not call on him. He said that he
had been in tears throughout the presentation. Thirty-eight years ago he was in exactly the same
position, and it was pretty tough for him to sit through it. He said that he had lived that, and it
had happened to him. He wanted to go to college and let college touch his life and change him.
This presentation is the most touching thing he has seen since he has been on the Board. He said
that he had lived it, and this presentation has been a terribly emotional thing for him. He thinks
that it is great work, and he thanked President Wethington, Mr. Carter, and others that are
making the Program possible. He said that he had opportunities to go anywhere in the world, but
he chose to live his entire life where he promised if they would give him a chance to go to
college. He told them he would come home, and he has never left.

       President Wethington thanked Dr. Stumbo for his comments and stated that Dr. Stumbo
said it better than anyone else.

form of a Consent Agenda requiring only one action of approval. The Consent Agenda will

      FCR 2 - the approval of new leases that are each greater than $30,000 annually and
              require specific Board authorization,
      FCR 3 - a recommendation that the Administration be authorized to execute appropriate

              Virginia Avenue owned by Beta Nu of Kappa Sigma House Corporation of
              Lexington, Kentucky,
      FCR 4 - the acquisition of property at 456 Rose Lane, Lexington, Kentucky which is
              owned by a University of Kentucky employee, and
      FCR 5 - the quarterly report of capital construction projects.

      Mr. Chellgren moved the adoption of FCR 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Governor Breathitt seconded
the motion, and it passed. (See FCR 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 at the end of the Minutes.)
