Report of Committee on Student Awards
Mr. J. F. McWilliams presented the following report:
"The Senate Committee on Student Awards was established at the November 14, 1979
meeting of Senate, to "advise the Director of Awards and Financial Aid on matters of
policy relating to Fellowships, Scholarships, Exhibitions, Bursaries and Prizes." The
Committee has met a total of seven times.
I. Since the report of the Ad hoc Committee on Awards and Scholarships
(November I, 1979) was never formally adopted, the standing Committee has
advised the Director of Awards and Financial Aid on the following:
a)     Definition of "full-time" for scholarship purposes
There has been discussion regarding the present limitations of scholarships to
full-time students, but while the Committee is considering options for
part—time students, the present policy with respect to scholarships shall be as
follows:
"Scholarships are made available to support full-time students. 'Full—time' for
purposes of adjudication of awards and selection of recipients shall be defined
as the normal full program as established by each faculty, and as defined in
the Calendar. For purposes of retaining a scholarship, a student should be
required to carry at least 12 units or in the case of professional program, at
least 80% of a full program." 7426.
Wednesday,  November   12,   1980.
Report of the Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
"b)     Deferred Awards
The Ad hoc Committee recommended that a student be permitted to defer a
scholarship only "if compelled for medical or compassionate reasons to
interrupt his or her studies." The standing Committee believes that this
policy is too rigid and recommends the following:
"A scholarship may be deferred for one year. Application for deferment must
be made to the Awards Office and must include reasons for the postponement
of studies at U.B.C. Students wishing to take up a deferred award must
advise the Awards Office in writing by July I."
c)     Entrance Scholarships
The Ad hoc Committee recommended that all students entering U.B.C. from
Grade XII in a B.C. High School and wishing to be considered for scholarships
be required to write the B.C. Government Scholarship examinations. The
Awards Office felt that there were a number of scholarships which were
restricted to a small group of students and that in some cases, the scholarship
should be based on high school marks, rather than government scholarship
examinations. The standing Committee has recommended the following
Calendar statement:
"Students entering U.B.C. from Grade XII in a B.C. High School, and wishing to
be considered for scholarships administered by the University will normally be
expected to write the B.C. Government Scholarship Examinations. The marks
obtained in these examinations will be used to determine the recipients of
entrance scholarships. When the number of possible candidates is narrowly
restricted by the terms of the award, the Government Scholarship
Examinations will not be required."  (effective 1981/82)
2.   Terms of Awards
Perhaps the most difficult task faced by the standing Committee and the Ad hoc
Committee on Awards and Scholarships was the matter of determining the terms
or conditions under which an award would be accepted by the University. There
have been repeated discussions at many Senate meetings regarding awards that
gave preference to or appeared to discriminate for or against one group of
students or another. After considerable discussion, the Committee has drafted
the following statement for the approval of Senate:
"In British Columbia, Human Rights legislation does not rule out affirmative action
in regard to University awards. Nevertheless, the Senate may decline awards to
be adjudicated by the University, which contain criteria that are contrary to the
interests of the University as an academic institution. Normally, this would
include criteria such as colour, creed, national origin, race and sex."
It was agreed by the standing Committee that awards which contain any of the
above terms or conditions, and which are to be adjudicated by the University
should be approved by the standing Committee prior to being forwarded to Senate
for acceptance. The Committee recommeds that the above statement be included
in all relevant publications of the University."
In reply to a query concerning the last paragraph of the report it was confirmed
that if an award contained a "restrictive" clause that the committee felt was
inappropriate, the award would be submitted to Senate in the normal way together with
a recommendation that it not be accepted. 7427.
Wednesday,  November  12,   1980.
Report of Committee on Student Awards (continued)
Attention was also drawn to item I (a) "Definition of full-time for scholarship
purposes". It was suggested that there was some ambiguity between the definition as
far as the initial award was concerned and the definition for purposes of retaining a
scholarship, i.e. it was unclear as to why a student was required to be "full-time" in
order to receive a scholarship initially but was only required to carry 80% of a full
program in order to retain a scholarship. It was also suggested that this definition
should not apply to graduate students.
Mr. McWilliams     )      That  Senate adopt the following statement on
Miss Warren )       terms of awards:
"In British Columbia, Human Rights legislation
does not rule out affirmative action in regard to
University awards. Nevertheless, the Senate
may decline awards to be adjudicated by the
University, which contain criteria that are
contrary to the interests of the University as an
academic institution. Normally this would
include criteria such as colour, creed, national
origin, race and sex."
Mr. McWilliams explained that the motion, if adopted, would enable Senate to
decline awards that discriminated against a specific group whilst allowing acceptance of
awards that would benefit such groups.
During the discussion that followed opinions were expressed that a more positive
statement was needed. It was felt that the statement in its present form could cause
confusion and would possibly inhibit the offering of awards.
Dr. Heaver        ) That    the    report    be    referred   back   to   the
Dr. Silver ) committee   with   a   request   that   an   amended
report be submitted to Senate that would take
into account the various points raised.
Carried
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
Mr. McWilliams     )       That the new awards (listed in Appendix 'A') be
Dr. Richards )       accepted subject to the approval of the Board of
Governors and that letters of thanks be sent to
the donors.
Carried 7428.
Wednesday,  November  12,   1980.
Candidates for degrees
Dean Riedel )       That the candidates for degrees as approved by
Dean Finnegan      )       the Faculties be granted the degrees for which
they were recommended, subject to any
necessary adjustments in the lists to be made by
the Registrar in consultation with the Deans
concerned and the Chairman of Senate.
Carried
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee (See Appendix 'B')
Dr. Richards presented the report on proposals submitted by the Faculties of
Agricultural Sciences, Arts and Graduate Studies.
The committee recommended approval of all items submitted by the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences with the proviso that Plant Science 310, to be offered in the
First Year of the B.L.A. program, be renumbered Plant Science I 10.
The committee also recommended approval of proposed changes to Economics
360, 361, 460 and 461 which had been withheld at the previous meeting pending
further consultation.
The committee further recommended that new courses and course changes
submitted by the Faculty of Graduate Studies be approved with the exception of the
proposed change in the description of Computer Science 537 and the proposed
deletion of Computer Science 507 and 527 which were being withheld pending further
consultation.
Dr. Richards       ) That     the     proposals     of     the     Faculties    of
Mr. Szeliski ) Agricultural Sciences, Arts and Graduate Studies
be approved.
Carried
Committee on Continuing Education
The annual report on Continuing Education activities 1979-80 had been circulated
for information.
In commenting briefly on the report Dr. MacDougall stated that the format had
been changed this year in that it contained information on extra-sessional credit
programs and continuing education activities in Health Sciences, Commerce and
Business Administration, Education and Social Work, which in previous years had been
circulated as separate documents. 7429.
Wednesday,  November  12,   1980.
Report of Committees of Senate
Committee on Continuing Education  (continued)
Dr. MacDougall drew attention to the summary of statistics on page 60 of the
report and stated that some activities of the University were not included, such as
the large number of public lectures which are given. He stated that the statistics
demonstrated a substantial effort on the part of the University to share its knowledge
and expertise with the community.
Mr. Kulich, Director of the Centre for Continuing Education, stated that over the
past five years U.B.C. had increased its continuing education activities in all parts of
the province; the most significant increase being in the area of professional
continuing education programs.
The Chairman expressed thanks and appreciation for the work done by
Dr. MacDougall and his committee and paid tribute to Mr. Kulich and to all those
involved in continuing education activities.
Ad hoc Committee on Examinations
At its meeting of May 21, 1980 Senate had agreed that the report of the
committee be referred to the Faculties for consideration with a request that they
report back to Senate in November. Replies from the various Faculties had been
circulated together with a copy of the report.
It was stated in the report presented by Dr. Jones, that the Senate motion
creating the committee (in April 1979) directed it to "examine the timing and length
of the December and April examination periods" and to consider in particular:
(i) the  desirability  of  a  study  break   between   the  end  of   lectures  and  the
beginning of examinations;
(ii) the feasibility of linking the examination schedule to the course schedule, and
(iii)        Senate policy with regard to students writing more than one examination on
the same day.
The issues which flowed from this mandate to the committee were complex and
required the committee to be concerned with many functions of the University
including physical space limits, staffing costs, the course registration system, the
academic calendar and scheduling of field schools, special seminars and practica as
well as alternative methods of scheduling both examinations and course offerings.
The recommendations which emerged from the committee's deliberations are as
follows: 7430.
Wednesday,  November   12,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Examinations  (continued)
Recommendation I
A study period of four to five days (including weekends) be inserted between
the end of classes and beginning of the final examinations schedule in
December and April periods. This study interval is intended solely as a
period for students to review and reflect upon the semester's (year's) work
and is to be free of class meetings, examinations, assignments or other
responsibilities of students.
Recommendation 2
Departments and Schools be requested to review their needs for common
examinations with a view toward eliminating unnecessary common
examinations and reducing the number of course timetable suequences
utilized by multi-section courses offering common examinations, this review
to take place during the 1980-81 academic year.
Recommendation 3
Examination scheduling be based upon a scheduling method in which
examination groups are populated by courses with common times in the
course timetable. Additional examination time blocks may be provided for
multi—section courses designated by the responsible Department or School as
courses for which a common examination would be desirable on educational
grounds. The Registrar be instructed to adopt the 1981-82 examination
schedules as the target date for implementation of this recommendation.
Recommendation 4
The final examination schedules for December and April be made available
to students prior to the period of course registration for the academic year,
this to be accomplished initially for the 1981-82 academic year.
Recommendation 5
Examination periods be shortened to the extent feasible by increasing the
number of examination groups scheduled per week through full use of
evenings and Saturdays.
Recommendation 6
To assist in the implementation of Recommendation I in the December
period, the President's Standing Committee on Registration be requested to
consider means of completing course registration prior to Labour Day.
Recommendation 7
The Administration be requested to institute an examination of the
appropriateness of the standard time sequences presently utilized for course
scheduling with the objective of developing a set of time sequences which
better fit the needs of the various Faculties and are likely to be more
heavily utilized than the present time sequences, this evaluation to be
conducted within a time frame which would permit introduction of any new
time sequences into the 1981-82 timetable. 7431.
Wednesday,  November   12,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Examinations (continued)
During a brief discussion of the report opinions were expressed that the proposed
study break was perhaps too long, and that some of the Faculties would have
difficulty with the "solutions" that would be imposed on them as a result of the
implementation of the recommendations.
Dr. Jones ) That recommendation I be adopted.
Dr. Dennison      )
In amendment:
Mr. Bakshi ) That recommendation I be amended to read:
Miss Waters       )        ...     ,   , • j     r •• *   *        j
"A   study   period   of   a   minimum   of   two   days
(including weekends) ...".
Carried
The motion, as amended, was put and carried.
Dr. Jones ) That recommendation 2 be adopted.
Dr. Gilmore        )
Carried
Dr. Jones requested that recommendations 5, 6 and 7 be considered prior to
recommendations 3 and 4.
In presenting recommendation 5, Dr. Jones explained that, at a recent meeting,
the committee had made revisions to the wording of this recommendation.
Dr. Jones ) That    examination    periods    be    shortened    by
Dr. Dennison      ) increasing the number of examination periods per
day, where necessary, and by use of Saturdays, if
necessary.
Carried
Dr. Jones ) That recommendation 6 be adopted.
Dr. Dennison      )
Dr. Jones stated that in the Faculty and student responses there were a number of
objections to registration that would involve students returning to campus prior to
Labour Day. It had been suggested that there be some form of pre-registration,
presumably by mail, but the committee felt that the President's Standing Committee
on Registration was the appropriate body to look at that issue.
The motion was put and carried. 7432.
Wednesday,  November  12,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Examinations (continued)
Referring to recommendation 7, Dr. Jones stated that he understood that the
President had already taken some initiative in that area, for reasons other than
examinations. One of the things that the committee had tried to do was to look for
ways of solving the examination problem which might also be beneficial to the
University in other ways. Dr. Jones also stated that the number of course time
sequences in use had a lot of implications for space utilization and was probably
partly responsible for inefficient use of space. This also impinged upon the course
selection choices that students have because with a very chaotic set of time
sequences there was a lot of overlap; more than would occur if there were a more
uniform or structured system. The committee felt that if the President could assure
Senate that the initiative he had undertaken would accomplish the intent of
recommendation 7, i.e. the development of a more appropriate set of time sequences
and a reduction in the number of time sequences in use, they would be prepared to
withdraw the recommendation as being redundant.
President Kenny stated that the scheduling of classes was being reviewed for the
first time in approximately twelve years. In his opinion the scheduling of classes had
broken down. Various Faculties were operating with anarchy; re-scheduling their
classes even after the schedule had been worked out on the computer. He stated that
the matter was being looked at in a very broad way and that there would have to be a
new system because the University was not making efficient use of its space
capabilities.
Recommendation 7 was withdrawn.
The committee felt that recommendation 3, which proposes tying the examination
schedule to the course timetable, was an important objective which would do a lot to
streamline the examination schedule, whereas patchwork attempts to improve the
existing system were not likely to be very effective. However, it was felt that
consideration of this recommendation should be deferred until recommendation 7 had
been accomplished.
Due to the lateness of the hour Senate agreed that recommendation 4 be brought
forward for discussion at the December meeting of Senate.
Academic Year 1981-82
A draft of the section of the Academic Year for inclusion in the Calendar had
been circulated. It was noted that the proposed study period contained in the
amendment to recommendation I of the report of the ad hoc Committee on
Examinations, would not take effect until 1982-83. 7433.
Wednesday,  November   12,   1980.
Academic Year 1981-82 (continued)
Dean Lysyk drew attention to the date for commencement of Law classes in 1981
and asked that the Registrar be authorized, upon request by the Faculty of Law, to
advance the date for commencement of law classes to Wednesday, September 2, 1981.
Dean Lysyk        ) That the proposed dates for the Academic Year
Dr. McClean      ) 1981-82 be included in the Calendar, subject to
the      proviso      concerning      the      date      for
commencement of Law classes.
Carried
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Establishment of the U.B.C. Coal Research Centre
The following report on the establishment of the U.B.C. Coal Research Centre had
been circulated for information:
"There are a number of Departments in various Faculties at the University of British
Columbia that undertake research and graduate training related to the use of coals.
With the increased attention that is being given to the potential of the coal resources
of the Province, it is timely to make administrative arrangements that will facilitate
the development of coal research activity at this University.
To this end, there has been established a Coal Research Centre with the terms of
reference:
1. To facilitate and promote the development of research and graduate training
related to the use of coal.
2. To foster contacts with industry and government coal research interests.
3. To supervise the programming of coal research facilities at the University as they
involve university, government and industry research programs.
The Centre has a Board of Management comprising the Deans of the Faculties with
major interests (Science; Applied Science; Agricultural Sciences (Soils); Graduate
Studies), chaired by the Dean of Graduate Studies, to whom the Director of the
Centre would report.
There will be an Advisory Council to make recommendations concerning research
areas and projects, and graduate programs, on which there will be representatives of
university, government and industry interests.
An Acting Director, Dr. P. Watkinson, has been appointed and is charged with the
responsibility for developing a permanent administrative structure and funding for the
associated space, equipment and staff needs. The possibility of proposing a Coal
Research Institute for approval of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Senate will
specifically be considered. 7434.
Wednesday,  November  12,   1980.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Establishment of the U.B.C. Coal Research Centre (continued)
"The necessary funding for the Centre will be sought from the British Columbia
Science Council, or other sources concerned with coal research. There is no
commitment of University operating funds for the Centre.
A report of the informal Coal Research Group provides details of the types of
submissions that might be made, which might include funds for extension of the Coal
Research Laboratory, equipment and operating funds."

Memorial Minute
The following memorial statement had been prepared in accordance with the
custom of Senate in recognition by the University and the Senate of the late Alden
Forrest Barss.
IN MEMORIAM
ALDEN FORREST BARSS
With the death of Alden Forrest Barss on July 12, 1980, in his ninety-third year, the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences at The University of British Columbia lost one of its
founding faculty.
Dr. Barss was born in Hoosick, Rensselaer County, New York, in 1888, and obtained his
schooling in Rochester. He received his B.A. degree in Classics and Philosophy from the
University of Rochester in 1910, graduating at the head of his class. His excellence in
scholarship and his participation in music, drama and a variety of sports already
forecast the wide range of interests which were to characterize his whole life. He
proceeded to a B.Sc. degree in Agriculture at Cornell University, and then pursued
graduate work towards his Masters degree in Horticulture at Oregon State College. He
received his doctorate from the University of Chicago.
He came to U.B.C. as Associate Professor of Horticulture, and in 1926 succeeded Dean
Clement as Head of that department. 7435.
Wednesday,  November   12,   1980.
Report of the Tributes Committee
Memorial Minute  (continued)
Dr. Barss held membership, in many instances as a Charter Member, in Professional and
Scientific Societies related to Horticulture, and served on Provincial committees
concerned with its problems. He was a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society of
England and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In
addition to his strenuous administrative and teaching duties, Dr. Barss found time to
judge fairs, serve as Secretary—Treasurer on the B.C. Fruit Growers' Association for
eight years and serve on the Advisory Board of the Pacific National Exhibition for over
forty years.
He was a staunch member of St. Helen's Anglican Church, and served from 1927 to 1971
on the Board of Governors of the Anglican Theological College of B.C.; for twenty-five
years he was its Secretary.
Dr. Barss was a member of the U.B.C. Senate from 1924 to 1930. He was as much
interested in education outside the university as within, and in 1933 he made a
submission to Senate which eventually led to the establishment of the Department of
University Extension.
Dr. Barss not only lived a long life but also a most interesting and rewarding one. He
had an intense and whole—hearted interest in people. He had the remarkable talent of
remembering people's names and details about their families. He will be warmly
remembered by all who had the pleasure of coming in contact with him, but especially
by his family, former students and associates.
He was married to Emily Malcomson in 1915, and they celebrated their sixtieth wedding
anniversary in 1975. Mrs. Barss was to pre-decease her husband that year. Senate
extends to his son Walter and daughters Ruth (Mrs. W.H. English) and Elizabeth
(Mrs. J.A.  Wheat) its deepest sympathy.
Dr. Stager ) That the memorial statement for Alden Forrest
Dr. Richards      ) Barss be spread on  the minutes of Senate and
that   a   copy  be  sent  to  the  relatives  of  the
deceased.
