Minutes of the University Senate, September 8, 1975 — cont

that you are not going to be subjected to an address. In fact, I
started out merely to come in and welcome the new Senators and to
welcome all of you back for what I hope is going to be another good
year for the University of Kentucky. Certainly, I am welcoming you
back to an institution that is somewhat more crowded than the one
you left. Figures that I think may be of interest to you are those
having to do with enrollments. These are head count, not full—time
equivalent; and if my latest report is anywhere near accurate, en—
rollment in the Division of Colleges is up about 1,000 students,
which represents about 5.4 per cent increase over last year. The
Medical Center enrollment is about where it was. The Community
Colleges have had a fantastic increase ~— 26 per cent —— from
13,006 to 17,002, which would suggest that the Community Colleges
still have some attractive features to people in this state. If
you add the Lexington Technical Institute students, who are also
taking courses on this campus, the Division of Colleges figure

goes up to about a 15 per cent increase. Overall, what this
amounts to is something like a 38,000 student population in the
total University System which is, overall, a 13.4 per cent increase
over last year, far greater than any of us would have anticipated.
This does nq:include the Fort Knox enrollment nor the extension and
evening programs, both of which are on the increase. So I am sure
that as you have looked at the size of your classes, the size of the
lines, drop—add, and all the rest of it, you know that there are more
bodies out there than we had counted on.

There are also some new faces in the administrative family and
I would like to present them to you to be recognized. I would like
to reintroduce to you Bob Drake, who has come back to the University.
All of you know that he was Professor and then Dean of the Engineering
College. He took a leave of absence and served as Vice President of
Research and Development for Combustion Engineering, one of the major
firms of its kind in this country. We were fortunate to persuade him
to come back to the University in a new role as my Special Assistant.
He will serve primarily as my liaison and provide the administrative
supervision for such things as the Tobacco & Health Research Institute,
for the Mining and Minerals Research Institute, for the Computing
Center, and for such other assignments as we may, from time to time,
add to that list. Bob, we are delighted to have you back.

A not altogether new face is that of Dr. John Smith who comes
to us as Vice President for Minority Affairs. John was, for many
years, Director of the Jefferson Community College and before that
was a member of the Ashland Community College faculty and served in
the public schools in Lexington. In his new position, John will be
responsible for the offices of Affirmative Action, Employee Counseling,
and Minority Affairs and he will be the Janus—like spokesman both to
the outside world, on our behalf, and to us, on behalf of the outside
world, about these matters. It is a very real pleasure for me to
introduce to this body a man with whom I hope you will have a good
deal of contact.

We were distressed at the decision of Mr. Larry Forgy to leave
the Vice Presidency for Business Affairs to go into the private
practice of law but I am pleased to report to you that we have been
successful in filling that posiiton and filling it very well, indeed.
Jack Blanton has signed on with us and has been here about a week. He
was formerly Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance at the Tennessee

State Board of Regents and he is also a former Budget Director of the
state of Kentucky. He is very knowledgeable about this state and
particularly in those relationships where the state and higher education
touch. He is widely respected in the state and he now comes to take
over this office which is the principal fiscal and business office for
the University and its affiliated corporations.

We also have two new deans who have come to the campus and I am not
sure that they have been presented formally to the Senate —— the new Dean
of the College of Medicine, Kay Clawson. Dr. Clawson is a graduate of
the Harvard Medical School, did his residency work at Stanford University,
and has had additional study in England, Holland, and Italy. He has had
very wide professional experience and we were able to attract him here
from his position as Chairman of the Department of Orthopedics at the
University of Washington in Seattle. Among his many honors he also
received the Outstanding Teacher Award at the University of Washington
on two occasions. He is here and at work and we are very pleased to
have him.

As you all know, the College of Dentistry has enjoyed considerable
prestige in the national ranking hither and yon. It too, has also had a
change and I wish to introduce the new Dean, Dr. Merrill Packer. Dr.
Packer received his degrees from the University of Minnesota; he was a
former faculty member here at the University, so he does know something
about this institution and this state and we were able to persuade him
to come to us from the National Institutes of Health in Washington. He
has a list of honors and awards too long to read but I would simply say
to you that we look to him to continue the kind of program thrust, and
attitude of one of our really superior colleges.

There are two deanships that are, at present, receiving the attention
of search committees. We are looking for a Dean of Library Science.
The Search Committee is at work; we have invited several candidates to
the campus; and we think they will be visiting here very shortly. You
also have no doubt learned that Dean Haywood has resigned as Dean of
the College of Business and Economics. Bill Ecton is serving as Acting
Dean. A committee has been appointed to recommend a permanent dean. I
met with that Committee last Friday morning and their search is well
under way. We would hope that both of these will have rather speedy

Moving from personnel matter, I think it might also be of interest
to you to take a very brief review of the various academic programs that
have been passed by this body or considered and then disappeared from your
vision, and I am sure you think they are out in limbo somewhere. During
the summer the Council on Public Higher Education which, for lack of a
better term I will call "the tank,” did approve one of the programs we
had over there, the Master of Public Administration. I am delighted that
it was approved as I think it is one of the more imaginative programs
that we have put forward recently and I really think this institution is
uniquely fitted to do this in a number of areas. There are a number of
other programs that you have considered, that are in ”the tank” —— the
Ph.D. program in Health, Physical Education and Recreation; the Ph.D
program in Philosophy; the Master's degree in Planning, which they have
had for some time; and the Master's degree in Forestry. You will recall

Minutes of the University Senate, September 8, 1975 — cont

that the Council, has, in fact, declared a moratorium on new programs
and it is my impreSSion that they will waive that only in unusual
cases. There are three other programs that have not yet gone to

the Council on Public Higher Education — the PhI) program in
Communications, now on my desk for my consideration of administrative
feasibility; the Ph.D program in Criminal Justice which is not yet
ready but will be coming back to the Senate for further consideration;
the M.A. in Teaching with a Mathematics emphasis which has not yet
been acted on. So there is one that has been approved, there are
four in Frankfort, and there are three still on campus in the process.
I thought it might be worthwhile to assure you that we at least

know where they are.

I think you might also be interested in reviewing some of the
changes that are taking place on the campus in terms of physical
facilities —— things that hopefully will be underway during this
academic year. I am sure you have noticed that we are now in operation
at the University Hospital in the patient care division, which has
been under construction for two years. It is basically an intensive
care facility that I think enhances our ability to serve the people
of Kentucky and is a very valuable addition to the Medical Center.

We are going to have the formal dedication September 27th.

There are a couple of other projects that are under way. One is
the Lexington Technical Institute which is the building across Cooper
facing back on Cooper Drive. We plan to move Dr. Barnhart's silver
barn, which is adjacent to it back further on the farm. The building
is progressing very well and is a six million dollar project. In that
same vicinity they are clearing the site for the Tobacco and Health
Research Institute — a 4.2 million dollar building to house that
program. That building is not being financed by the University but is
being financed out of dedicated tax money that was alloeated for the

There are three other structures that have been funded but have
not yet advanced to the point where we can ask for andreceive bids.
During the course of this year we hope we will move on these three -—
the Fine Arts Building, a 5.2 million dollar building which is to go on
the site of old Stoll Field. We hope that this building will give us
a much greater flexibility on the campus in terms of having a small
auditorium for certain kinds of recitals, etc, and a 1,500 seat audit—
orium. In addition, we hope to have some gallery space and to be able
to use the foyers around the two halls as exhibitionspace. We have
a long way to go before we are going to be able to take bids on that
building. The Health Sciences Learning Center, which will cost over
seven million dollars in state and federal funds, will go up on the
site of the old Jefferson Davis school property, and very close to it
a two million dollar project, the Biology for the Aging Research Center
that came from the one million dollar gift by the John Y. Brown
Foundation and matching funds from the state. What this all means I
can assure you is that there will continue to be that same condition
you have known for some years —— a lot of noise, a lot of racket,

a lot of open trenches on the campus. The building program for the
future I think is likely to be aimed at fairly specific type buildings
rather than those of general utility.

Minutes of the University Senate, September 8, 1975 — cont 4004

The next item I would like to mention very briefly concerns business
that will be before this body in the year ahead and I want to Speak
specifically to the question of the reorganization of the College of Arts
and Sciences. You will recall that the College, at my request, initiated
a rather comprehensive study of possible reorganization. This was done
during the 1973—74 academic year and reported to me in June, 1974.

In accordance with the Governing Regulations I then sent this document
to the Senate for advice with a request that attention be given first
to the internal reorganization of the College. The Senate's Committee
on Organization and Structure recommended last December that approval
of the internal reorganization of the College be approved then and
there. I agreed with this and we implemented the reorganization on
July 1, which created in effect, a Division of Basic Studies, a Division
of Experimental and Individualized Studies, and a Division of Advanced
Studies. Probably it would be a good idea somewhere down the line for
Dean Gallaher or someone to speak to you about that. I think it
probably needs more amplification than I am in a position to give.

There were a number of other suggestions in there that run not to
internal reorganization but rather to the questions of the size and
complexity of the present College. Some of these proposals have to

do with the possible separation of the School of Communications, of

the Department of Theatre Arts, the School of Music, and of realign—
ments of some new colleges into schools, and possibly mergers. There
are a whole range of things in it. All I want to say now is that I
hope this body will give it some attention. The Governing Regulations
require that I receive the advice and recommendation of the Senate on
these matters of reorganization and when I submit this to the Board of
Trustees I want to be in a position to make the statement that I have
met that requirement. There are some very complicated issues that you
should address yourselves to in this year ahead and make your recom—
mendations and give me your advice so that we can make a recommendation
to the Board. I think we have had plenty of time to look at it, plenty
of time to talk about it and now we should get to it. I should say to
you that one suggestion in that proposal was the separation of the
School of Communications and its merger with the College of Library
Science into a new College of Information Services. This was being
considered along with everything else until an intervention came in

the form of the accreditation problems of the Journalism program.

Your Committee on Academic Organization and Structure has given a
considerable amount of thought to this aspect of the proposal during the
past year and has held some hearings. The Committee recommended to the
Senate Council, and the Senate Council concurred, that a provisional
reorganization of the School of Communications be undertaken
immediately, abolishing the present School and realigning these programs
into a School of Journalism and a Department of Human Communications
within the College of Arts and Sciences. I went to the Senate Council
back in the summer, and asked them if they would advise me, mainly
because I thought that the uncertainty and the confusion surrounding
this could best be abated by being in a position to tell the respective
faculties, when they returned to the campus, what was in store for this
particular year. I will recommend these actions to the Board of Trustees
next week and I wish to say to you now that this is a provisional and
interim reorganization, to this degree. There are several ways that

we might choose to go. We may wiSh to leave both of them in the College
of Arts and Sciences, we may choose to take them both out of that College;
or we may decide to leave one in and take the other out. But before we

make that decision I want the full consideration of it by this bOdY-











Minutes of the University Senate, September 8, 1975 — cont

Therefore I want to stress that I hope the Senate will make the
Arts and Sciences reorganization a prime topic in terms of impor—

Let me conclude by saying that this is also a legislative
year and there will be many issues, as always, that will emerge
in the course of this year that we cannot foresee. One of the
consequences is already very clearly outlined and that is that
we are in the throes of preparing the biennial budget request
for the University of Kentucky. We have been involved in this
for months and we are now getting down to the very hardest part.
We have had to shrink the figures considerably from the original
request that came in, to what can be a manageable and defensible
request. We are aiming at having the biennial request submitted
to the Board of Trustees at its October meeting. At this time
we have considered two things concurrently. The Council on
Public Higher Education has also asked that there be a five—year
plan. We have not only generated the five—year plan, as many
of you know because you have been a part of the generation, but
we have tried, in terms of the five—year plan, to make the biennial

budget request reflect the priorities and concerns of the University

in the two years immediatdy ahead of us.

These are some of the items that I thought you would be
interested in. I hope and expect to be back from time to time
during the year to report to you and to discuss with you these
matters and others. In the meantime let me do what I really came
to do which is to say "We are glad to have you back here.” The
place has taken on some life again and I hope that you and all
of us are going to have a very good year at the University.

Thank you very much.

On behalf of the College of Home Economics, Professor Patricia Horridge
presented a Resolution on the death of Professor Betty Eastin and directed
that the Resolution be made a part of the Minutes and that copies be sent to

her family.


Betty Downer Eastin, Associate Professor of Textiles, Clothing
and Merchandising, served as a member of the University of Kentucky
faculty for 13 years. She was a native of Aliceville, Alabama and
earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in Home Economics from the University
of Alabama. She taught Vocational Home Economics in the Alabama
school system from 1947—50. Mrs. Easton was an instructor at the
Louisiana State University in 1951. She joined the faculty of the
University of Kentucky, School of Home Economics, as an Assistant
Professor in 1952. In 1968, Mrs. Eastin became Co—Chairman of
the Textiles and Design Area, and from 1969—1971 she was Acting
Chairman. In 1971 she became Acting Chairman of the Department of
Textiles, Clothing and Merchandising upon the organization of the
College of Home Economics and served in this capacity until 1973.

Minutes of the University Senate, September 8, 1975 — cont 4006

Mrs. Eastin was instrumental in the development of the Fashion
Merchandising program at the University of Kentucky. In the imple—
mentation of the program, she guided over 300 students through
professional preparation and practical experience in the business
field. Mrs. Eastin maintained friendly contacts with many of her
students and was always willing to give direction_mhen needed.

Mrs. Eastin, who taught History of Costume at the University of
Kentucky for many years, was instigative in establishing the historical
costume collection in the College of Home Economics. It was because
of her interest and initiative that the College now has a working
collection for students, faculty and community.

Because of her concern for home and family life, Mrs. Eastin
was active in promoting home economics. She was a member of the
American Home Economics Association, Kentucky Home Economics
Association, serving as the college advisor in 1953. She was
State Chairman of the Committee of Home Economics in Homemaking
from 1961—63 and organized two new Home Economics in Homemaking
groups in the state. When Mrs. Eastin left the University in 1974
due to illneSS, she was active in the National Society of Interior
Designers, Fashion Group of New York, American Association of
University Women,‘and the University of Kentucky Women's Club.

Mrs. Eastin died on July 3, 1975, and is survived by her
husband, Dr. Charles Eastin, Lexington veterinarian, and five

The University community will miss her competency in the area
of home economics, her compassion, and her never ending interest and
concern for people.

Following the reading of the Resolution the Chairman asked the Senators to
stand for a moment of silence in tribute and respect to Professor Eastin.

Chairman Krislov announced that the Senate Council had been active during
the summer. He reminded them that a good amount of the work of the Senate is
done by its several Committees and that in order to facilitate that work a
date had been set for the meeting of these Committees during this year. He
reported that these Committees would meet the first Monday of each month, from
3:00 to 5:00 p.m., the first meeting to be held Monday, October 6. He stated
that the Committee members would be receiving a notification from the chair—
person regarding the place for the meeting. Chairman Krislov stated further
that the Senate Council would be asking the Senate for comments and suggestions
for committee activity.

The Chairman turned to the five informational items on the agenda. The
Developmental Studies Program (circulated to the faculty under date of August
26, 1975) was discussed briefly on the floor. The Program follows:

Due to the University of Kentucky's Open Admission Policy, 400—
500 students accepted yearly whose academic preparedness level is so
low as to virtually guarantee that they are not able to compete success—
fully and will not complete a degree program at UK or any other institu—
tion. Of the approximately 400 new students each fall who have a
composite ACT score of 14 or less, 93% do not last three semesters.

Minutes of the University Senate, September 8, 1975 — cont

In an effort to be more responsible to this "high risk” group ‘
and hopefully, to salvage a significant number, President Singletary .
has funded an experimental program entitled Developmental Studies. dgm‘
For this initial year the program revolves around four courses.
The first is a.non—credit Reading and Studies Skills course (RSS),
patterned after a similar one now offered on a limited basis by
the Counseling and Testing Center. The other three courses are l
English 101, Math 108R, and Speech 181, each a three credit course.
Some sections of these 3 courses are dedicated entirely to the
Developmental Studies Program. For example, all of the English
lOl—Tutorial sections are so dedicated. ,

To participate, a student must agree to take the Reading and
Studies Skills course and at least two of the other three. The ;
remainder of a 12—hour schedule is to be composed of other courses ‘
appropriate to the student's plans for a major. Such choices will
be made in consultation with the student's adviser (one of the three
academic—personal—career advisers) who have been recruited to work ‘pQK
exclusively with students in the Program. .”‘

The sections assigned to the Program will generally have a
small number of students. English lOl—Tutorial will have a max—
imum of 17 per section, while the dedicated sections of Speech 181
will have 20 each. Mathematics plans on 40 students per section,
but also intends to hire special tutors to work with students in
this course.


In addition to the advantages of a smaller class size and of
a greater opportunity for special attention by the instructor, it /
is planned to allow students who need it extra time to work through
the courses. The Program has received special permission of the
Senate Council to award the grade of "S,” as appropriate, at the end
of the first semester and have students repeat their registration in y
the course for the Spring Semester and receive a letter—grade at the
end of that semester. Of course, such studens will earn 3 credit
hours even though they have been enrolled in the course for two dmw‘
semesters. This permission of the Senate Council is for experimental
purposes and is valid for this year only.


A Developmental Studies student enrolled in any one of the
dedicated sections is expected to achieve the same exit skills (even
though he or she may take a full academic year to achieve them) as 1
a student taking the same course in a non—Developmental Studies
section. The intent of the Program is to give students with weak
academic backgrounds closer personal supervision, courses that begin {
at a more fundamental level and in some cases, a longer period of
involvement; but not to expect less work from, or a lower final
performance level by such students.

5 , ._

"f t ~J» In addition to the dedicated sections and the special advisers, I

' ' there is a third advantage associated with participating in the

Program. Specifically, the University guarantees not to drop the 4gg§
students who show a good faith effort for three semesters. This will
give an adequate period of time for students in the Program to overcome
their background deficiencies and prove that they can work successfully
at the University level.

For the first year, the target of the Program is 200 students.
‘ To administer the Program, the University has recruited a Director——
42%“ Dr. Mary F. Franke —— who is an Assistant Dean in the Division of
"‘ Basic Studies of the College of Arts and Sciences. The Program is
housed on the third floor of Frazee Hall and the offices of the
Director and Program Specialists are located there, as well as
f specially equipped learning laboratories for students in English
lOl—Tutorial and Reading and Study Skills. The various class
sections assigned to the Program are being taught on the second
, floor of that building. The advisers have their offices on the
second floor of the Office Tower in order to utilize the services
of the College's Office of Records and Registration.

Though administratively a unit in the College of Arts and
Sciences' Division of Basic Studies, the Developmental Studies
Program has a University—wide mission. It is designed to assist ,”
entering freshmen throughout the University who can profit from ‘ 3:
its services regardless of their ultimate choice of a college, V '
‘gfl‘ department, or personal program of study. Developmental Studies W
' students will initially be enrolled in the College of Arts and '
Sciences to simplify record keeping and to insure that they are
provided the intensive advising and the personalized instruction
they require to maximize their chances of academic success. “,
Simultaneously, however, the advisers will insist that each student ‘h
who has declared a major be in touch with a liaison faculty adviser "
in his chosen area. Upon completion of the fundamental skills
courses provided by the Program and when a clear choice of a major .
is made, each student will be transferred to the college of his 3%



Faculty encountering students whom they believe could be
/ helped by the Developmental Studies Program are invited to refer j
them to Dr. Mary Franke (312 Frazee Hall) who will counsel them ‘ 333
' individually regarding the prospects of participating in the “
Program. The general criteria for admission to the Program is
QMM‘ a composite ACT score of 14 or less.



Chairman Krislov alerted the Senators that a proposal for changes in Senate
Rules regarding student rights and responsibilities is now in the hands of the
Committee on Student Affairs chaired by Professor Levis McCullers and anyone
who wiShed to be heard concerning possible changes in student rights and
responsibilities should contact Professor McCullers. In answer to a request ‘ fl
from the floor that Professor McCullers give the Senators a brief synopsis ,f
r of the changes that are being considered in student rights and responsibilities, ,f
Professor McCullers reported that the proposed changes would be circulated to .j
the faculty; that the biggest single item pertains not only to the penalties 3%
but the procedures involved in academic offenses relating to cheating, plagiarism, j ‘J
etc.; further that there were a number of minor changes. .5;

’ Chairman Krislov reported that the degree of Master of
