D. Closed Session
Dr. Brockman stated that the Board of Trustees would go into closed session in order to
review the comments and preliminary recommendations about the preferred presidential
candidate. These comments and recommendations were received from the faculty, staff; and

I. President’s Report (PR 1)
Lexmark Gift Allows Renovation of Fonner Northside Librag
President Todd began with the first item in PR 1 and recognized Provost Subbaswamy for
working with Lexmark in receiving a $1 million donation to renovate the Northside Library on
Russell Cave Road that UK purchased earlier. The gift will be matched by UK. The renovated
facility, set for completion by August 2012, will provide a new lab for fieldwork-based ecology
education, a professional development facility for Kentucky science and math teachers, and
storage and work space for UK‘s P-12 science and math outreach unit. This gift is given as part
of Lexmark‘s 20-year anniversary, and the president thanked Lexmark CEO Paul Rooke for this
significant contribution on behalf of Lexmark to the community.
Arts & Sciences South Africa Initiative Hosts Anti-apartheid Activists
President Todd recognized the College of Arts and Sciences South Africa Initiative which
culminated with a visit from well-known South African anti-apartheid leaders and fonner

political prisoners Ahmed Kathrada and Barbara Hogan during April. They visited classes,
spoke at a convocation where they received honorary degrees, opened an exhibit that honors
Kathrada‘s commitment to non-racialism and democracy, and signed his new book published by
University Press of Kentucky, No Bread for M oridelo: M ernoirs of Ahmed K othrczdcz, Prisoner
No. 468/64. The book covers his anti-apartheid activity and resulting imprisonment with Nelson
Mandela and other activists.
UK Celebrates Impact of Research Challenge Trust Fund
The UK Council of Endowed Professors and Chairs held a luncheon and presentation March 30
at the Hilton Lexington/Downtown to recognize the significance of the Research Challenge Trust
Fund, also known as "Bucks for Brains.“ The first round of matching funds from the state for the
program was made available in 1998. Since that time, more than 12,000 donors have given gifts,
qualifying for approximately $230 million in matching funds. RCTF funds at UK resulted in 78
endowed chairs, 190 professorships, 280 fellowships, scholarships, lectures, enrichment funds,
research support, and an endowment for the William T. Young Library. UK‘s matching funds
include 33,012 gifts from 12,731 donors, including 6,095 alumni, 5,518 non—alumni, 826
corporations, and 120 foundations.
President Todd asked the Board to look at the following three items in PR 1 which relate to the
STEM area, and announced that Kentucky is doing very well in the math sciences.
CASTLE to Relocate to UK College of Education
The Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE) will
relocate to the University of Kentucky College of Education. The center, which was originally
housed at Iowa State University, will work with the Kentucky P20 Innovation Lab to partner
with regional educational organizations and schools to facilitate the implementation of
technologies that help improve teaching and student leaming.
Six Colleges Host Annual STEM Symposium
The annual UK STEM Symposium took place in late April. The event focused on "Connecting
STEM Education across the Bluegrass State” and was co-sponsored by the colleges of
Education, Engineering, Arts and Sciences, Agriculture, Communications, and Medicine.
The organizers of MATHCOUNTS (a national club and competition program that promotes
mathematics achievement) approached the Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) to
organize a fun event for middle school students the night before their state final competition in
Lexington on March 26. The MATHCOUNTS regional winners built ping-pong launchers,
raced edible cars, and created miniature dams at CAER.
Tax Increment Financing to Accelerate Development at Coldstream Research Campus
President Todd thanked Dr. Len Heller, Vice President for Commercialization and Economic
Development, and Steve Byars, Assistant Vice President for University Relations, and others for
their part in working with the Kentucky Legislature to approve a new law which pennits the
establishment of a tax increment financing (TIF) district on the Coldstream Research Campus.

As a result, UK will be able partially to finance much-needed laboratory and incubator space.
UK will solicit a master developer to build a mixed-use ‘“town center” and use the taxes
generated to fund new research buildings, as well as to be a catalyst for retaining and recruiting
biotech companies to Coldstream. A request for proposal (RFP) will be released at the end of
May to select a qualified master developer to design and build the town center and laboratory
buildings, and to restore the historic Camahan House in a 35-acre TIF district.
Atlanta-Based Allconnect Sales and Service Center Comes to Coldstream
The Atlanta-based company Allconnect Inc. will create 220 new jobs and invest nearly $7
million to establish a 32,000 square foot sales and customer care center at the Coldstream
Research Campus. Allconnect is expected to open in May and will occupy the entire fourth floor
ofthe Lexhold building at 1648 McGrathiana Parkway. Allconnect allows consumers to order or
transfer home services, such as satellite and cable TV, Intemet, phone, and home security.
Allconnect is a client of the Bluegrass Business Development Partnership between the UK
Office for Commercialization and Economic Development, Commerce Lexington, and city
In addition, President Todd praised UK ‘s Len Heller, Provost Subbaswamy, and faculty
members for working to retain another growing business — TempurPedic, which will build a
l00,000 square foot building at Coldstream.
UK Economic Development Efforts Help State Tie for Fifth in Entrepreneurship Increase
President Todd mentioned that there is proof that UK is an important player in working to keep
sustainable jobs in the area. Kentucky tied with Califomia and Texas as one ofthe top l0 states
with the largest increase in entrepreneurial activity over the past decade, according to the
Kaufman Index of Entrepreneurial Activity, a leading indicator of new business creation in the
United States. The creation of the university’s Office for Commercialization and Economic
Development in late 2006 is credited with having played a vital role in such activity.
President Todd suggested that despite the brevity of his remarks about PR l, the other items in
PR l merit examination.
J. Reappointment to Board of Directors of the Fund for Advancement of Education
and Research in the University of Kentucky Medical Center (PR 3)
President Todd recommended that the Board approve the reappointment of Anita Britton
to a directorship in The Fund for two years ending June 30, 20l3.
Dr. Brockrnan asked for a motion of approval of PR 3. Mr. Stuckert moved approval.
Ms. Patterson seconded. The motion passed without dissent. (See PR 3 at the end ofthe
Dr. Todd concluded his remarks by expressing his appreciation to Chainnan Brockrnan,
Search Committee Chainnan Stuckert and the other members ofthe search committee, the Board
of Trustees, and the many others who worked with the Board for their parts in the search process.

He is pleased with the results, the process, and the manner in which they kept the campus
infonned of what was taking place. He also stated that he looks forward to becoming a full
fledged alumnus and working with the new president, if he is approved by the board.
K. Candidates for Degrees - University System (AACR l)
Dr. Brockman passed the floor to Ms. Brown, chair of the Academic Affairs Committee,
for her report. The first action item ofthe committee was AACR l, which lists candidates for
May degrees at the university. Ms. Brown moved acceptance of AACR l. Mr. Farish seconded
her motion, and it passed without dissent. (See AACR l at the end ofthe Minutes.)
L. Change in Name of an Educational Unit (AACR 2)
Ms. Brown described the recommendation and background ofthe suggested name change
ofthe College of Agriculture’s Department of Family Studies to Department of Family Sciences
in AACR 2 and moved approval. Her motion was seconded by Dr. Sachatello and passed with
no dissent. (See AACR 2 at the end ofthe Minutes.)
M. Academic Degree Recommendation (AACR 3)
AACR 3 recommends the establishment of a Ph.D. degree in Integrated Plant and Soil
Sciences as an umbrella degree program to provide an integrative and creative approach to
graduate education in the plant and soil sciences. Ms. Brown, on behalf of her committee,
recommended approval. Mr. Dawson seconded her motion. There was no discussion, and there
was no dissent in the passage of AACR 3. (See AACR 3 at the end ofthe Minutes.)
N. Change in Degree — College of Agriculture (AACR 4)
Moving to AACR 4, Ms. Brown related the recommendation and the background for
another change in degree in the College of Agriculture. This resolution suggests a change in the
name ofthe Master of Science with a major in Plant and Soil Sciences to Master of Science with
a major in Integrated Plant and Soil Sciences. She recommended approval, which was seconded
by Mr. Shoop. The motion passed without dissent. (See AACR 4 at the end ofthe Minutes.)
O. Change in Degrees — College of Agriculture (AACR 5)
Faculty members in the Department of Family Sciences voted to change the names of the
degrees in their area to create a consistent identity and better reflect the teaching, research, and
engagement activities in the department. They have received the necessary approvals to bring
their resolution to the Board of Trustees. Ms. Brown recommended approval. Mr. Dawson
seconded, and the motion was approved without dissent. (See AACR 5 at the end of the

P. Proposed Amendment to Goveming Reggglations: Faculty Entrepreneurial Leave
gAACR 6)
The proposal in AACR 6 creates entrepreneurial leave for faculty employees who wish to
take time off from their university position to pursue entrepreneurial activities. Because the
university encourages faculty employees to engage in entrepreneurial activities and supports the
efforts of faculty who wish to commercialize their discoveries, the pursuit of entrepreneurial
endeavors is a valid reason for establishing entrepreneurial leave. Establishing this type of leave
requires alteration of Governing Regulation Part X, which is presented for first reading. Ms.
Brown invited questions and then recommended approval. Her motion was seconded by Mr.
Stuckert. The first reading passed without dissent. Dr. Brockman explained that upon passage
ofthe second reading ofthis proposal at the next board meeting, it would become final. (See
AACR 6 at the end of the Minutes.)
Q. Finance Committee Report
Mr. Stuckert, chair ofthe Finance Committee, reported on the moming meeting ofthe
committee. He made a point to thank Mr. Warren Rosenthal, a long-time supporter ofthe
University of Kentucky, for his million-dollar pledge in FCR l, a consent item.
R. Proposed 20ll-l2 Tuition and Mandatoy Fees Schedule (FCR 4)
Mr. Stuckert thanked Ms. Angie Martin, Vice President of Financial Operations and
Treasurer, and Mr. Frank Butler, Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration, for
making a trip to northem Kentucky the previous Friday where they explained to eight trustees
the background and rationale ofthe changes. There was additional discussion in the morning’s
Finance Committee meeting. And, using the newly instituted procedure to Petition to Address
the Board, Mr. Derek Hall from Flemingsburg, Kentucky and Ms. Amy Oliver from Princeton,
Kentucky, two law school students, addressed the Finance Committee about the tuition increases
for the College of Law, Law Dean David Brennen also spoke to that point.
Mr. Stuckert summarized the proposal for the 20l l-l2 tuition and mandatory fees
schedule. At its April 28 meeting, the Council on Postsecondary Education authorized these
criteria for research institutions (University of Kentucky and University of Louisville):
• maximum six percent increase for undergraduate, resident tuition and mandatory fees
• maintains the current floor for nonresident, undergraduate tuition and mandatory fees of
two times the resident undergraduate rate
• market competitive tuition and mandatory fee rates for graduate and first-professional
The rates in FCR 4 comply with the CPE criteria.
Mr. Stuckert moved approval of FCR 4 and indicated his willingness to answer any
questions that the Trustees might have. Mr. Mobley seconded the motion.

Discussion followed.
Mr. Smith stated that he felt students and Kentuckians were substantially burdened by
having borne a l30 percent increase in tuition over the previous l0 years and that a line must be
drawn at some point in order to maintain the mission of the state’s flagship institution and to
serve the entire state. He said that he would vote not to approve FCR 4.
Ms. May agreed that this is a difficult vote, and although she understands why the
changes have been proposed, she is troubled by tuition increases from $3,700 to almost $8,700
over a l0-year time frame. Having larger increases in the professional schools than in the
undergraduate schools sets a dangerous precedent. Students entering professional schools with
four to five years of undergraduate debt should not be faced with tuitions that can rise rapidly.
She said she would vote No.
Mr. Roberts stated that he would not be able to support the tuition increase this year.
Although he understands the need, there are also the needs of the students and their families to be
considered. He and all of the board struggle every year with this issue, and he feels it is
important to find a way to find a solution to the problem.
Dr. McCorvey stated that the challenge for the board and the university is that we have to
find ways to enhance what we are able to do here. The faculty has not had raises in three years,
and that’s a major concem. The students are being taxed because something is not happening at
the legislative level. He suggested that we have to ask our legislators to look at our system.
Does the state need to be taxed more so that the Legislature can do their job and help the
university receive extra funds so that the students won’t be taxed? It may be time to ask
legislators to do their job in helping to move this state forward by granting to the university the
appropriate funds that can help the university educate the citizens of Kentucky.
Ms. Brown spoke next and said that she, too, would not support FCR 4 due to her deep
concem about the students, who may be at a tipping point at which they are not going to be able
to afford a college education.
Mr. Gatton stated his sympathy for the students and wished tuition increases were not
necessary. Even so, in l0 or 20 years, most likely the currently proposed tuitions will be viewed
as modest. To keep the best faculty, deans must be able to give salary increases in order to fight
competitive offers from other schools.
Ms. Brothers said that she would vote in favor of FCR 4. She also expressed that she
shares concerns for the students and agrees with Dr. McCorvey that there are issues with raises
for faculty and staff She fears that we are pricing ourselves out of the ability to educate the
native Kentuckians that we are here to serve.
Mr. Stuckert suggested that it is unfortunate that Ms. Martin could not present her full
program to all board members. Her program puts in perspective Kentucky’s standing among its
benchmarks and other Kentucky schools and shows that in tenns of undergraduate tuition and
fees for 20ll, of 2l schools mentioned in an included chart, Kentucky’s proposed tuition is fifth

from the lowest. Tuition has increased in the past l0 years, but other schools, for example, have
increased their fees by almost double while Kentucky fees have risen 70 percent. He agreed that
to keep good faculty, you must pay them competitively. He mentioned that the "Bucks for
Brains” legislation did not match scholarship money raised by either the University of Kentucky
or the University of Louisville, although this match was made for all other upper-level Kentucky
institutions. He affinned that President Todd’s push for scholarship funds was an important
strategy that must be continued.
Dr. Peek wanted to be sure that a differentiation was made between the tuition increase
and salary increases for faculty and staff UK has had steady tuition increases in the past years,
but no increases in salaries. He guessed that the tuition increase would have been proposed at
the same level whether or not any increases in salary were proposed. He also agreed with Mr.
Gatton and Mr. Stuckert that we are losing top faculty. And he felt Mr. Roberts’ comment that
the system may be broken was excellent, there is a continuing problem that points towards
changing the system.
Dr. Sachatello suggested it was time to vote on the question. Dr. Brockman allowed
President Todd to comment. President Todd encouraged the board to approve FCR 4 by
clarifying some fine points and explaining some motivation for specifics ofthe proposal. One of
President Todd’s major concems is that although the 3 percent raise proposed for this year is not
large, he felt it is very important to offer a raise. "One of my concems is that private
universities’ endowments are going to come back a lot faster than state budgets are going to
come back. And the private university is going to be picking the state universities clean [of their
best faculty].” He emphasized that he was sympathetic with the issues raised by the board, but
he stressed the importance of passing FCR 4. "We’ve got to pay our expenses. We’ve got to
keep the place moving on the train that we’ve got it on.”
Dr. Brockman asked for the board to vote and requested a show of hands. Twelve board
members supported the passage of FCR 4. Ms. Brown, Mr. Dawson, Ms. May, Mr. Roberts, Dr.
Sachatello, and Mr. Smith voted against it. Dr. Brockman announced that FCR 4 passed. (See
FCR 4 at the end ofthe Minutes.)
Mr. Gatton commented on the economics of inflation and the increase in costs of a
college education.
Mr. Shoop had a comment and a question about some accounting issues in the allocation
of revenues and expenses. He asked for clarification that the university has a General Fund
account that pays all ofthe university’s expenses, and tuition dollars do not necessarily pay for
faculty and staff salaries. Ms. Martin concurred that the university is on a fund accounting
system, and the General Fund receives revenue for various sources which pays all of the
university’s expenses. Tuition is not designated to pay salaries.
S. Proposed 20ll-l2 Room and Board Rates (FCR 5)
Mr. Stuckert continued the Finance Committee report, summarizing the reasons for an
increase of 9 percent in the room and board rates in UK housing — the Board’s previous approval

of $30 million to construct new donnitory housing space as well as expected inflation in food
prices. He referred the Board to details on pages l to 3 ofthe handout. He moved for adoption
of FCR 5 and was seconded by Mr. Gatton. FCR 5 passed without dissent. (See FCR 5 at the
end of the Minutes.)
T. Revision of University of Kentucky Debt Policy (FCR 6)
Mr. Stuckert explained that FCR 6 changes the university’s debt policy by changing the
criteria for approval of intemal loans of university funds and by allowing intemal loans and cash
advances to be made, subject to guidelines, to university entities for up to 90 days. He moved
the approval of FCR 6. He was seconded by Mr. Gannon. Ms. May asked for assurance that
these intemal loans would be reported to the board and was told that they would. Dr. Brockman
asked the board to vote. The vote was unanimous for the adoption of FCR 6. (See FCR 6 at the
end of the Minutes.)
U. 20l0-20ll Budget Revisions (FCR 7)
Ms. Stuckert said that the revisions outlined in FCR 7 will increase the University of
Kentucky’s total budget by $49,811,000 — from $2,500,327,000 to $2,550, 138,000.
Predominantly, this increase is $50,000,000 to fund the Patient Care Facility in accordance with
the plan that the Board of Trustees approved at its March board meeting. Mr. Stuckert moved
approval of FCR 7, and Mr. Shoop seconded his motion. There was no opposition to its
adoption. (See FCR 7 at the end of the Minutes.)
V. Replace Video Boards at Commonwealth Stadium (FCR 8)
Mr. Stuckert reviewed FCR 8, which has been through several iterations and involves
replacing video boards at Commonwealth Stadium using private funds including a withdrawal of
up to $4.6 million from the Athletic Fund’s quasi-endowment. The scope of the proj ect is $6.25
million and will be funded entirely by private funds. He recommended approval and was
seconded by Mr. Mobley.
Dr. Peek felt that more information should have been provided to the board in order for
them to make this decision. His objection was that there may be a pattem of giving board
members too little infonnation, which he felt did not allow them to perfonn their fiduciary duties
properly. Mr. Stuckert felt that the issue had been fully vetted in committee, that Athletics
should be assumed to be competent in asking for such expenditures, and that to ask more would
be micro managing. Dr. McCorvey stated that he, too, had wanted more information and had
met with Mr. Mitch Bamhart, Athletic Director, and was informed that the video board would
pay for itself over its useful life from both increased revenue and from sponsorships. Mr. Gatton
agreed that more infonnation should be provided to the board for such decisions.
Mr. Shoop asked about the fact that using the suggested finance plan of FCR 8, the
university would lose $l50,000 of interest, which he pointed out was a significant amount of
money. He suggested that it is not a good habit to pick to pieces all proposals and cause delays

which result in lost revenues. The board should be united and make a commitment that they are
going to push together and not nitpick small items.
Ms. Young commented that she agreed with what everybody has said and that she felt
that their difficulties point to a public relations problem. She felt that it is important to have
proposals presented well, with all the facts available and a focus on how items would be best
presented to the public.
Mr. Miles agreed but stated that this would have been a good day for Mr. Bamhart to
have attended the board meeting and presented his case. He suggested that the board would ask
for that in the future.
Dr. Brockman stated that he thinks it is the will of the board that he instruct the executive
vice president for finance to provide more detail on cost projections and revenue streams on
future Finance Committee resolutions. Mr. Stuckert moved for the question and was seconded
by Mr. Gatton. Dr. Brockman asked the board to vote on the call for the vote, which passed
without dissent. Then he conducted the vote on FCR 8, which had already been moved by Mr.
Stuckert and seconded by Mr. Mobley. FCR 8 received one No vote, cast by Dr. Peek. Dr.
Brockman announced that FCR 8 had passed. (See FCR 8 at the end of the Minutes.)
President Todd infonned Mr. Miles that Mr. Bamhart was in Binningham, Alabama at a
mandatory Southeastem Conference athletic directors meeting. Mr. Mark Coyle represented
Athletics during the Finance Committee meeting and the full board meeting.
W. Renovate Shively Sports Center {FCR 9)
Mr. Stuckert moved to FCR 9 — renovate the Shively Sports Center. The scope of this
capital project is $950,000, and it will be funded with private funds from the University of
Kentucky Athletic Association. Mr. Stuckert moved approval and was seconded by Ms.
Patterson. The motion passed without dissent. (See FCR 9 at the end ofthe Minutes.)
X. Capital Construction Report {FCR 10)
Ms. Stuckert moved to the last FCR of this meeting, the review of the Capital
Construction Report. Mr. Bob Wiseman addressed the Finance Committee at the moming
meeting and explained the items. He moved approval of FCR l0 and was seconded by Dr.
McCorvey. The motion passed without dissent. (See FCR l0 at the end ofthe Minutes.)
Y. Student Affairs Committee Report
Dr. Brockman passed the floor to Ms. Patterson, chair ofthe Student Affairs Committee,
who reported that in their moming meeting, Mr. John Herbst, Director ofthe Student Center,
talked about the approaching Student Center renovation. Selections have been made for the lead
architectural consultant (Omni Architects) and for mechanical construction (CMTA Engineering
Consultants), both local firms. A construction manager will be chosen soon, construction will
begin in December, with completion in December 2012.

Student Govermnent Association updates were supplied by SGA President Ryan Smith.
Mr. Micah Fielden was elected president of SGA for the 2011-12 academic year. SGA
sponsored a Cram Jam event in April featuring food, drinks, basketball, a corn hole toumament,
and miscellaneous other entertainment, including free breakfast and tutoring at the site. SGA is
working with Wrap Up America, an organization that gives blankets to people in need and hopes
to fumish blankets to tomado victims in Alabama. The Cats Cruiser will run until the end ofthe
Mr. Jim Wims, Assistant Vice President for Residence Life, talked about the Panda
Express, which has recently become a vendor at the Student Center. Sales figures indicate that it
is very popular, and additional employees are being recruited through the Stuckert Career Center.
Z. University Health Care Committee Report
Ms. Young, chair of the Health Care Committee, gave its report. She stated that Mr.
Sergio Melgar, Vice President for Health Affairs, presented the financial report comparing the
balance sheet at March fiscal year 2011 and fiscal year 2010. Cash has decreased $126.7 million
due to use of cash reserves for the remainder of Phase IA ofthe Patient Care Facility project.
Accounts receivable decreased by $1.7 million compared to last year, and net patient service
