& Capital Trust Company. Frankfort. Kentucky as Trustee. in Compliance
with the Provisions of the Trust Indenture Dated June 1. 1965 (FCR 25)

      Mr. Hardymon said that FCR 25 is the authorization to explore a bond
issue. If there is satisfactory progress on this, the final bids will be brought to
the Board on April 30, 1996 for the Board's approval. This is for funds for the
renovation of Donovan Hall, Haggin Hall, and Greg Page Stadium View
Apartments. It represents $2,140,000. With the present interest rate and the
desire of people to loan money, this should be an attractive item. He moved
approval of FCR 25. Mr. Reed seconded the motion, and it passed. (See FCR
25 at the end of the Minutes.)

      EE.  Appointment of External Auditor (FCR 26)

      Mr. Hardymon said that every four years the University asks for
proposals to work with the University as external auditor. FCR 26 involves
the years 1996-1999. He reported that three bids were received. The lowest bid
was extremely attractive because it is a lesser amount ($89,000) than the
University has been paying on an annual basis. It involves no escalation
from year to year and includes expenses. He announced that Deloitte &
Touche were the low bidders. The firm has other higher education
experience both in the consulting side and the auditing side. Their bid was
very competitive. He said that the scope of the audit has been reviewed with
them, and they are in agreement with the scope of the audit. He moved
approval of FCR 26. His motion, seconded by Mr. Welenken, carried. (See
FCR 26 at the end of the Minutes.)

important that the Board knows what the Committee is doing. He called on
Mr. Wilcoxson, Chairperson of the Investment Committee, to give the report.

      Mr. Wilcoxson explained that the Investment Committee is
responsible for the oversight of endowment investments of the University of
Kentucky and its affiliated corporations. The endowment investments had a
market value of $156 million on December 31, 1995.

importance of the endowment to University programs caused the Investment
Committee to undertake a com
