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

       President Wethington commented on the following items in his report:

       1.   UK's equine research program has received three significant
             gifts: a William Robert Mills gift expected to exceed
             $3 million, a $1 million charitable lead trust from Albert
             Clay, former member of the Board of Trustees, and a commitment
             of $250,000 to a charitable remainder trust from an anonymous
             donor.

       2.   UK Hospital has performed its 100th transplant operation.

       3.   UK is ranked again for the fourth consecutive year as one of
             the 101 Best Values in America's Colleges and Universities.

       4.    The Community College System has been awarded an $800,000 NSF
             grant for computer and math labs.

       5.    The Community College System has also received a $100,000
             Planning/Development KERA Grant from the Corporation for
             National and Community Service.

       6.   The College of Allied Health Professions, the Sanders-Brown
             Center on Aging and the St. Claire Medical Center in Morehead
             have received a three-year grant for $580,603 from the U.S.
             Department of Health and Human Services to initiate the Rural
             Health Interdisciplinary Training Project.

       7.   Odyssey, UK's research magazine, has received the Gold Award
             for the Best Cover of Educational Magazines in the nation.

       He asked the members to peruse the other items in the report at their
leisure.

       As a part of the President's report and an effort to keep the Board
members apprised of major activities in the University, President Wethington
said that he had put a report on the University of Kentucky Lucille Parker
Markey Cancer Center on the agenda. He recognized Dr. Ben Roach, an
individual who has been largely responsible for the major fundraising
efforts that led to the facilities which comprise the current Cancer
Center. Dr. Roach was asked to stand and be recognized, following which he
received a round of applause. He then asked Chancellor Holsinger to
introduce Dr. Kenneth A. Foon, Director of the Lucille Parker Markey Cancer
Center and Chief of the Division of Hematology and Oncology in the College
of Medicine.

       Dr. Holsinger expressed pleasure in introducing Dr. Kenneth A. Foon.
He said that Dr. Foon has done an outstanding job in the short time that he
has been with the University and asked him to report on the Markey Cancer
Center.

       Through a series of slides, Dr. Foon gave a brief overview of the
Markey Cancer Center. He commented on the various buildings and the Cancer
Center organizational structure. He noted that the Cancer Center represents
the entire Medical Center, interacting with all of the different
disciplines. It is not just for the Medical School. There are basic
scientists in the Combs Building and throughout the campus who are members
of the Cancer Center, using the research resources and their core support.
The Markey Cancer Center serves as a focus to draw all of the groups
together. He reported that there is an internal and external advisory board
and a McDowell Cancer Research Foundation which Dr. Ben Roach heads. He
reviewed a number of the accomplishments since his arrival in January 1993
and mentioned some of the outstanding programs in the Center. He also
elaborated on the following topics:

       New Recruits Since 1993
       IRB Approved Studies by Sponsor
       Anti-Idiotype Vaccine Program
       Benchmarks in Progress 1993-95
       Grant Support
       Targets for Future Development
       Special Programs and Services
       Matrix Organization
       Cancer Control Program Activities 1993-94

       In closing, he said that one of his missions is to recover a National
Cancer Institute designated cancer center grant which was lost a number of
years ago. He expressed appreciation for the support from the University
and the community.

       President Wethington said that Dr. Foon's recruitment is certainly a
major part of the success of the Cancer Center. He thanked Dr. Foon for
making the report to the Board.

       F.    Personnel Actions (PR 2)

       President Wethington recommended that approval be given to the
attached 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. Mrs. Weinberg moved
approval. Her motion, seconded by Mrs. Bell, passed. (See PR 2 at the end
of the Minutes.)

       G.    Proposal to add Community College Student to the Board of
Trustees

       President Wethington said that T. A. Jones had announced his
resignation from the presidency of the Student Government Association. By
Student Government Association rules, his position of Student Government
Association President is taken by his vice president, Benny Ray Bailey, II.
He recognized Mr. Bailey and the students from some of the community
colleges who were in the audience, and they received a round of applause.

       President Wethington reminded the Board of Mr. Jones' request at the
last meeting to bring a proposal to add a community college student to the
Board.  He mentioned the letter that Mr. Bailey had sent to the members of
the Board asking for their support for representation for the community
college students on the Board.

       President Wethington said that he had discussed the pros and cons of
the issue more than once with Mr. Jones prior to his resignation. Mr.
Jones, as does Mr. Bailey, feels strongly that the community college
students deserve a trustee seat. He provided background information, noting
that the Student Government Association President is chosen by the
University System students and the Lexington Community College students and
not by the other community colleges. This was a determination by students
in the University, not by the Board of Trustees or the General Assembly. He
said that this issue is not one which, in his opinion, should be put in any
context of opposition to community college student representation or student
representation generally on the Board of Trustees. But it is, he believes.
a basic tenet of American higher education that public universities in this
nation are governed by lay governing boards. He reviewed the current
membership on the Board and noted that 25% of those members are not lay
members (not appointed by the Governor).

       President Wethington expressed regrets that the Board had been put in
this position. He said that the Board does not determine who is or is not a
member of the Board. This is a matter that is determined by the General
Assembly.

       He reported that there has been a student and faculty representative
on the advisory board of each of the community colleges in the Commonwealth
since 1970. That action was in direct response to the felt need of faculty
and students in the community colleges to be involved in a body which was
involved with their particular community college.

       President Wethington expressed opposition to any further
representation on the Board by anyone other than lay members representing
the public in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. He said, in his opinion, the
Board is large enough. He recommended that the Board not endorse a proposal
to have the General Assembly enact legislation to add a student member to
the Board as a representative of students in the Community College System.
He, therefore, recommended that the Board deny the request and vote down the
proposal to add a community college student to the Board of Trustees. He
assured the Board that his position would be the same if the request came
from a group of staff members or any other constituent group in the
institution.

       Professor Mather asked to read the following statement from the three
faculty trustees:

       We have carefully reviewed the proposal to add a student
       representative from the Community College System as a voting member
       of the UK Board of Trustees. UK is a large and very comprehensive
       institution. We are the state's only comprehensive institution for
       higher education with a statewide mission for teaching, research, and
       public service. Within the University System we offer the liberal
       arts, we are a land grant institution with a statewide mission in
       agricultural research and extension, we have a medical center and
       hospital, we have colleges of engineering, business and

economics, fine arts, and communications to mention only a few, plus
this University includes a community college system. In recent
years, we've seen the linkage strengthen between the University and
community college systems in joint use of facilities and services
(e.g. Hazard Community College and library). In all likelihood we
are unique in comparison to all institutions of higher education in
the U.S.

With this background in mind, it is appropriate, then, that nearly
half of this Board is composed of representatives of a variety of
constituent groups. Constituent representation has been a
significant part of this Board for the past 48 years, and perhaps
much longer than that. It is noteworthy that as the comprehensive
nature of the institution changed, so did the nature of its governing
board.

One constituent group is the student body. We find it highly
appropriate for this Board to include representation from students.
It has been a healthy and a necessary addition to this Board. To
augment this representation with a student representative from the
community colleges, however, is a proposal, which in our opinion
needs further study and is one which at this time we are unable to
support.

The proposal leaves some significant issues unaddressed. One is the
potential difficulty of an election process among community college
students who are themselves geographically dispersed across the
Commonwealth, who are in two year programs, and therefore have
limited opportunity to identify system-wide student leadership.
Second, attending meetings of this Board could pose a potential
hardship on the selected student in making a large number of trips to
Lexington during the school term. These students often hold
part-time jobs or have other obligations. Further, it is not clear
to us whether this is a proposal that is foremost in the minds of
students across the 14 community colleges.

What would make much more sense to us is to give these students (and
their faculty counterparts) voting status on the advisory board of
their respective community colleges. These are the boards which
appear to us to be a more relevant decision-making body for these
students (and we understand that the students take their assignments
on these boards very seriously). Students and faculty were added as
nonvoting members of the community college advisory boards in 1970
soon after nonvoting faculty and student representatives were added
to the Board of Trustees,

In 1978, student and faculty representative on the Board of Trustees
were given voting status. However, voting rights were not extended
to the faculty and students on the community college advisory boards,
no doubt an oversight in the General Assembly.

For those who are interested in pursuing this issue with the General
Assembly, we feel a more positive and effective proposal would be one
which extends voting rights to the student and faculty members on the
community college advisory boards. Further, this alternative would
extend the voting franchise to a much larger number of students than
adding another student representative to this Board.

       Mr. Sturgill said that he was sympathetic as he might be to things
that happen in the Community College System because they have no greater
supporter than he has been over the years. This Board does not have the
authority to change the composition of the Board. It is a lay Board,
created to bring some balance to the governance of the University. He moved
that the proposal on the table be disapproved.

       Professor Sistarenik reiterated that it will be up to the General
Assembly to make the decision about this issue. The 14 Student Government
Presidents are ex-officio voting members of the Senate of the Community
College System. They also have two student representatives from their group
on the Community College Council. They are on the system's rules committee,
the system's program development committee and the system's student services
committee. They have a vote just as any of the faculty members on all of
these committees. In addition, there are several other community college
system-wide committees with student representation and there is a
representative on the student advisory committee to the Executive Director
of the Council on Higher Education. He pointed out that there is quite
extensive student representation in the Community College System.

       Mrs. Weinberg commented that the Board needs to distinguish between
input and representation. She said, in her opinion, everyone is interested
in student input and it had been outlined both by Professors Mather and
Sistarenik exactly to the extent it is set up. She said that kind of flow
needs to be encouraged in those committees and councils. In her opinion, it
is prudent to disapprove the proposal, but that the Board consider Professor
Mather's proposal about whether or not to recommend voting privileges oin the
advisory boards when we do seek a new student representative.

       Mrs. Plattner said that she did not know of a way to amend the
proposal, but she did believe that Professor Mather's recommendation holds
great weight. She said that she was impressed with the community college
students' attendance. The Board needs to keep Professor Mather's idea and
revisit it again with the understanding that the Board is always working for
more voice from everybody who is its constituent.

       Governor Breathitt said that any member of the Board can request an
agenda item, and he reviewed the process for getting an item on the agenda.
He reminded the Board that this proposal was just an expression of sentiment
of the Board at this time. It has no power of law. Following the motion by
Mr. Sturgill to disapprove the proposal, which was seconded by Mr.
Wilcoxson, the proposal was disapproved.

       H.    Associate Degree PQg-ram in the Community College System
Hopkinsville Community College (PR 4A)

       President Wethington recommended that the Board authorize for
submission to the Council on Higher Education a new degree program,
Associate Degree in Applied Science, Early Childhood Education, for the
Hopkinsville Community College. Mrs. Weinberg moved approval. Dr. Powell
seconded the motion and it carried. (See PR 4A at the end of the Minutes.)

title of the degree in line with the title of the department. Dr. Powell
moved approval. Her motion, seconded by Mrs. Bell, carried. (See PR 5B at
the end of the Minutes.)

       K.    New Master of Science D gree or Master of Arts Degree Program
in Interior Design. Merchandising and Textiles (PR 5C)

       President Wethington recommended that the Board authorize for
submission to the Council on Higher Education a new degree program, the

       L.   Appointment to University Hospital of the Albert B. Chandler
Medical Center. Inc. Board of Directors (PR 6A)

       President Wethington recommended that Steven S. Reed be appointed a
member of the Board of Directors of the University Hospital. He stated
that the Board of Directors consist of five voting. members appointed by the
Board of Trustees from among their number. He said that he had consulted
with Chancellor Holsinger and Dr. Meriwether, Chairperson of that Board. and
this action has their strong recommendation. He expressed pleasure in
recommending the appointment of Steven S. Reed. Mrs. Weinberg moved
approval. Mr. Sturgill seconded the motion and it passed. (See PR 6A at
the end of the Minutes.)

       M.    Appointment of Dire tor of the Kentucky Health Service _(PR 6D)

       President Wethington recommended that Chancellor Holsinger be
appointed to serve as Director of the Kentucky Health Service, representing
the University of Kentucky. He noted that this action is necessitated by
HB 250. This bill requires that both the University of Kentucky and the
University of Louisville have a person appointed as director. Mr. Welenken
so moved. His motion, seconded by Mrs. Bell, carried. (See PR 6B at the
end of the Minutes.)

       N.    Appointments to the University of Kentucky Center on Aging
Foundation (PR 6C)

       With President Wethington so recommending, on motion made by Dr.
Powell, seconded by Mr. Welenken and carried, the appointments in PR 6C to
the Center on Aging Foundation were approved. (See PR 6C at the end of the
Minutes.)

representing the community college students.

       President Wethington shared in Mrs. Sims comments. He noted that
