It must be realized that thls will require a reduction in resources allocated  to some other activity of the university. (2) Even though  The University of British Columbia is an  older institution than  the  other two universities. in  many areas of its activities it has  not yet been able  to allocate to them all of the resources that they require. A conscious effort therefore needs to  be  made to preserve and strengthen activities that  are  already of a high  quality,  and  to improve in areas where the  quality is lower than it ought to be. (3) If enrolment in an  area of core activity appeared  to  be low, primaJacze efforts should be made to increase it. A suggested approach  to  a perceived  "high" enrolment is set out in paragraph 3.06 (4). (4) Special value to  Canada or British Columbia, or uniqueness,  are simply added reasons for retaining or developing core activities of the university. in favor of retaining  and developing core activities, there  could be cases where the university should consider contracting, or even eliminating  completely,  an activity otherwise regarded as core. For example, if the  quality  and  enrolment in an existing program were low, if the costs were high and  alternative  programs were offered at other  institutions,  one  might  argue  that it would be  better for this university to eliminate  the  program completely. (5) Despite the very strong  presumption 3.11 (1) In  the case of core  related activities, the university should retain existing  activities, but as a  general principle  should consider with great  care any proposals to add new activities of this type.  That would be particularly  the case where the proposed activity builds on, rather  than lays the  foundation for a  core activity. (2) If the  quality of any  existing core related  activity is poor,  consideration should  be given to  improving its quality. (3) If enrolment in a  core-related activity is perceived to be high,  the university should  be  more  prepared  to reduce  enrolment  than it would be in the case of core activities.  Moreover, if enrolment in a  core-related activity were low over a longish period of time  then  a case could well exist for reducing  the support for such activity. (4) Special vaiue to Canada or B~itish Columbia, or uniqueness, would be reasons for retaining  and  strengthening any core- related activity. more  than in the case of core activities, to reduce or even eliminate  core-related operations. For example, if the quality and enrolment in a particular  program were low, and  the costs were high,  the  program might be reduced or even eliminated completely,  and this even though  there were not alternative  programs  being uffered in the province. any non-core activities, even in  times of tinancial  abundance.  Therefore, even if there is no  financial  inducement  to  do so, rhe university should consider  whether it wishes to  continue  to work in non-core activities should such  exist. If anything, there  should  be  a  presumption against its doing so. (2) A  non-core activity's continued existence at  the university could, however, be justified. For example, this might  be done  on  the basis of high quality  and low costs,  high enrolment  and  the lack of any other similar program in the province. developed following the suggested guidelines,  there  are  three  matters which in a sense are of an ancillary nature,  but which are nonetheless of importance: (1) The  procedures we have  proposed (5) The university ought to be prepared, 3.12 (I) The university should not have 3.13 Assuming that  an  academic  plan is exclude by implication  either expansion or retrenchment by pro  rata increases or reductions in the allocation of resources. Decisions must be made by reference to some set of principles which have  been agreed on  in advance of making specific decisions. (2) The social and  human  impact of any reorganization of the work  of the university cannot be ignored.  Attention will therefore  need  to  be  paid  to  the effect of reorganization  on  faculty, staff and  students.  Equally,  the effect of the alteration of academic activities on students who might have  been planning to  attend  the university will have to be borne in mind. (3) Any plan  that is developed can  not be excessively rigid. Some  allowance  must be made for flexibility in its application,  and, without planning ad nauseam, the university needs to reconsider from  time  to  time  the grneral  structure of any  plan that it adopts. IV. IMPLEMENTATION 4.01 In the  time available to us we have not been able to give proper consideration to  the  implementation of the principles which we suggest should form the framework of any academic  plan  adopted by the university. In any event, we doubt if we could draw  up any implementation scheme  without  some reasonable consultation within the university. In this respect therefore we do  no  more  than  state what are  probably two self-evident principles. First, if the university should accept our proposals as providing a framework for an  academic  plan, it should then immediately set to work to  apply those principles to  the  situation in which it currently finds  itself. Second, whatever the exact process of implementation, it needs to be done with the  due involvement of the academic bodies of the university,  in particular  the faculties and  the  Senate. Oriental  night helps  library UBC raised  almost $10,000 for support of its Asian Studies Library as a result of an  Oriental Night staged  at  the Robson Square  Cinema  on April 14. The largest  single donors  to  the  fund- raising  event were the Mitsui Canada Foundation  and  the Vancouver Chinatown Lions Club. Some 50 individuals also made contributions  to  the  evening of entertainment sponsored by the UBC Library  and Sing Tao  newspaper, Vancouver's Chinese-language  journal. selection of Japanese  and Chinese music and saw dancing  and  a  martial  arts exhibition. purchase  material for the UBC Asian Studies Library, housed  in the Asian Centre,  regarded as one of the leading libraries of its kind  in North  America.
