Great Trek 1982
In presenting a motion requesting the U.B.C. Senate to endorse the Great Trek
1982, Ms. Stenger stated that the motion had the unanimous support of the student
senators. Ms. Stenger deferred to Chancellor Clyne for comments on the history of the
Great Trek.
Chancellor Clyne urged Senate to support the commemoration of the Great Trek
and stated that the students were well advised to present such a motion. He also stated
that, to a great extent, it was true that the University was suffering in much the same
way as it had in 1923 but at that time the position was not, as a number of people
thought, one of protest. Its objective had been to gain the sympathy and cooperation of
the community at—large. Whilst realizing that there must be restraint because of the
economic difficulties of the present time, the Chancellor fully supported the motion.
Ms. Stenger )    Whereas this year marks the 60th anniversary
Chancellor Clyne    )    of the 1922 Great Trek which was undertaken
as a response to the Government's failure to
recognize the importance of education and of
our University, and
Whereas there exists a parallel in that there is
a failure to recognize the value of education,
Be it resolved that the U.B.C. Senate endorses
the Great Trek 1982 and encourages all
members of the University community and the
wider community to take part in the week's
events, October 18th to 23rd, 1982.

In September, 1980, the revised Adult Education Diploma Program consisting entirely
of courses at the undergraduate level was initiated. Previously the diploma program
had consisted of graduate level courses. Since this re-organization ninety students
have been admitted, forty-nine of whom took one or more courses in the 1981-82
Winter Session. Four were full-time. Forty-one of these students were on the new
and eight on the old program. Half of the graduates of 1981-82 were on the old
program and half on the new. Since the diploma program was established in 1966, a
total of one hundred and twenty students on the old program and nine on the new
program have qualified for the diploma.
In an effort to increase accessibility of the diploma program to practising adult
educators throughout the province, Guided Independent Study versions of several of
the courses are being prepared and made available. The first of the Guided
Independent Study courses (Education 328) was opened for registration in April 1982.
The second course (Education 329) will be available in September 1982.
Counselling Education
The revised Diploma Program in Counselling Psychology is almost prepared and should
be coming forward for approval in fall of 1982. The Department has been consulting
on the requisite courses and hopes to have them ready for consideration by August. 7863.

Faculty of Education
Report on Diploma Programs - 1981-82  (continued)
"Diplomas in Education of the Deaf and in Education ot the Visually Impaired
This university (through the Universities Council) has contracted with other western
provinces to provide diploma programs for candidates from those provinces in two
areas in which U.B.C. has established programs. These areas are the Education of the
Deaf and the Education of Visually Impaired Children. The academic year 1981—82
was the first year of the program, but inasmuch as the signing of the contract did not
occur until May 1981, there was not a full complement (eight in each program) of
registrants in the other western provinces. In the diploma program for Education of
the Deaf, there were two students from Saskatchewan and one from Manitoba among
those enrolled. All three succeeded in completing the diploma requirements this
spring."

accommodate mid—career Chinese scholars through the exchange program.
Report of the Tributes Committee (in camera)
Memorial Minutes
The following memorial statements had been prepared in accordance with the
custom of Senate in recognition by the University and the Senate of the late Kathleen
Sally Murphy Creighton, and the late Earle Douglas MacPhee.
KATHLEEN SALLY MURPHY CREIGHTON
Sally Creighton, who died on September I I, 1982, was the granddaughter of
Denis Murphy, a Gold Rush days pioneer of British Columbia, and the daughter of the
late Mr. Justice Denis Murphy, the first native-born British Columbian to be
appointed to the Supreme Court of this province. She was born in Ashcroft in 1903
and educated in Vancouver, graduating from UBC in 1923 with First Class Honours in
English and History. She also took part in the Great Trek of 1922, and became a
contributing writer of prose and verse, and later a Features Editor, for the student
paper the Ubyssey. 7869.
Wednesday,  October  13,   1982.
Report of the Tributes Committee
Memorial Minutes (continued)
Following graduate work leading to an M.A. degree in 1924 at the University of
Toronto, she taught in the English Department at UBC, and later at the University of
Toronto, where she married John Creighton in 1927.. She and her husband taught
together for a year at Bennington College in Vermont, coming to Vancouver in 1938
when John Creighton was appointed to the English Department at UBC. The post-war
increase in enrolment saw her teaching again. At the same time she began the
writing of radio scripts and broadcasting of book reviews which pointed the way to a
second career when she retired from teaching in 1949, a career that later no doubt
helped her to bear the loss when John Creighton died in 1977.
In the years that followed retirement from teaching Sally Creighton not only
served nine years on the Senate of UBC and a term on the Board of Governors, she
also steadily enlarged her activities as writer and critic and commentator for both
radio and television. Her brilliance in these fields and her skills as an executive led
to her becoming president of the B.C. branch of ACTRA, vice-president of its
National Council, and the recipient of a life membership presented to her "for
distinguished services to the performing arts". Over those years she also contributed
to local and national broadcasts over CBC in the field of education, and helped as a
volunteer on many charitable organizations such as the Community Chest and Red
Cross, receiving the Red Cross Medal in 1946.
Such a record is witness to the creative energy and social concern, the intellectual
and imaginative powers, of this remarkable woman. They were evident still in the
last years of her life, when in spite of difficulties and discomfort she undertook the
editorial work and indexing required to see the book of a Toronto friend through the
press. Even more impressive, however, were the qualities of mind and character, the
cheerfulness and courage and continuing zest for life, the wit and humour, that saw
her through the last year and more of increasing pain and physical weakness. She will
be widely missed and long remembered.
To her son Denis and daughter-in-law Joan, and to the members of the larger
family, the Senate extends its deepest sympathy.
Dean Larkin )  That the memorial statement for Kathleen Sally
Chancellor Clyne  )  Murphy Creighton be spread on the minutes of
Senate and that a copy be sent to the relatives of
the deceased.

both Canada and the United Kingdom until 1950. He was active in wartime

School of Commerce. In 1956, he was appointed the first Dean of the new Faculty of

of Financial and Administrative Affairs. In 1952, along with Senator Don Cameron of
Alberta he helped found the Banff School of Advanced Management. In 1957 he
served as sole commissioner on the Royal Commission looking into the BC Tree Fruit
Industry.

MacPhee received honorary degrees from the Universities of Alberta, British
Columbia, Calgary, Acadia and York as well as professional designations including
that of C.A. and C.G.A.
The Executive Conference Centre in the Henry Angus Building carries his name.
The citation for the dedication of that space in 1976 included the words:
"As Dean he was truly the founder of those developments in business
education at The University of British Columbia that united town and
gown."

appointed E.D. MacPhee Commander of the MacPhee Clan. Over the past years he
