Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

3. The Educational Psychology Program has been ranked 1 9th among peer programs. As mentioned before, the way to get to "top 20" is to have different departments move up, and others move up later. It is great to be in that category. 4. As a part of the effort to diversify campus, the Commission on Diversity recommended that a President's Award for Diversity be established, and the President will present the award each year. Those nominations are now being sought across campus. 5. The Arts and Sciences Assistant Dean, Richard Greissman, developed a UK graduation contract. This was previously passed through the University Senate and has the Senate's support. The way the contract will work is there will be certain things that the students will have to abide by. If the students abide by those things and cannot graduate on time because of a University problem, then the University will pay that tuition. 6. Dr. James K. Patterson's statue has moved to a new location in front of the Patterson Office Tower. There are four ways that Dr. Patterson could face, and the architects made recommendations. Dr. Patterson is now facing the "Main Building" that he put money into, as well as 40 years of his life. In the beginning, that was the University's only building, and as you look at the back of the "Main Building", the large opening will be the Welcome Center. The concept is that Dr. Patterson will be there to welcome all the new students and faculty as they come to campus. 7. Dr. Thomas D. Clark, historian, celebrated his 100th birthday. There was a great turnout for one of his celebrations at the W. T. Young Library. H. Robinson Forest Report President Todd said that the Board had received a Robinson Forest report in their Board packets and hopefully had a chance to review the report prior to the meeting. The report has some very good information. He thanked Dr. Grady Stumbo for his resolution in asking for the report to come forward. He also thanked Jack Blanton, Scott Smith, Paul Van Booven, and Jim Cobb of the Kentucky Geological Survey, for their work. Each of them was assigned different components of the report. He asked Dr. Jack Blanton to give a very brief summary of the report and said that Dean Smith would talk about the work that he had done on the report. Following their reports, he would take questions regarding the report. Dr. Blanton thanked President Todd and said that he is living testimony to the fact that old vice presidents never die they just fade away, and this is his valedictory, he hoped. He said that his appearance before the Board is to conclude the one major item that was left unfinished from his watch as vice president.
