- 4- Board to the Council on Postsecondary Education for final approval because it represents a degree change at the University. Ms. Wilson moved approval. Mr. Chellgren seconded the motion, and it passed. (See PR 5A at the end of the Minutes.) I. Consolidated MS Program in Nutrition (PR 5B) President Wethington said that PR 5B is a companion recommendation. The recommendation is that the Board approve the consolidation of the MS in Clinical Nutrition in the College of Allied Health Professions and the MS in Nutrition and Food Science in the College of Human Environmental Sciences into one combined masters degree in Nutritional Sciences. This change pulls together a program which is in the Medical Center in Allied Health and one which is in the Lexington Campus in Human Environmental Sciences. This is a good move designed to increase efficiency and effectiveness. He said he was delighted to recommend approval of PR 5B. Mr. Williams moved approval. His motion, seconded by Mr. Chellgren, carried. (See PR 5B at the end of the Minutes.) J. James W. Stuckert Career Center (PR 5C) President Wethington said that PR 5C is a recommendation that he is delighted to bring to the Board. At the last Board meeting, the Board approved the acceptance of a pledge and gift from Jim and Diane Stuckert. He said he indicated at that time that he planned to take to the Committee on Naming University Buildings the proposal that the new University Career Center currently being built on Rose Street next to the Alumni House be named the James W. Stuckert Career Center. The Committee on Naming University Buildings would make the recommendation to the Chancellor who would make the recommendation to him and the Board. He said it gave him great pleasure to recommend that the new University Career Center to be completed in the year 2000 be named the James W. Stuckert Career Center. Mr. Bates moved approval. Mr. Guthrie seconded the motion, and it carried. (See PR 5C at the end of the Minutes.) Mr. Guthrie said that he knew that Jim and Diane Stuckert were in attendance at the meeting. He said he would like for the Board to know of the leadership that Mr. Stuckert has brought to the University. He was a past national alumni president and has been active in the Jefferson County Alumni Club for years. It is a pleasure to see his success and that he has been able to pass that on to the University. On behalf of the Board he thanked Mr. and Mrs. Stuckert very much. Mr. Miles and President Wethington asked Mr. and Mrs. Stuckert to stand and be recognized, following which they received a round of applause. President Wethington said that everyone certainly appreciated all that they do for the University of Kentucky, not just recently but for a long time. Mr. and Mrs. Stuckert are dedicated alumni and supporters of the University. He said, "We know where your heart is, and it is with the University. We look forward to participating with you in a dedication ceremony for the new James W. Stuckert Career Center sometime in the first half of the year 2000." He thanked them for coming to the meeting.
