Senate membership
Introduction of Student Senators
The Chairman welcomed the new student senators.
Director, Centre for Continuing Education
The Chairman welcomed Mr. V. P. Battistelli, Acting Director of the Centre for
Continuing Education, replacing Mr. J. Kulich for the period April I to November 30,
1984.
Minutes of the previous meeting
Dean Larkin    ) That the minutes of the Seventh regular meeting
Dean Beagrie  ) of Senate for the Session   1983-84, having  been
circulated, be taken as read and adopted.
Carried
Business arising from the Minutes

(P.8180)
Two student vacancies on the Nominating Committee had been declared at the
previous meeting.  The Chairman called for nominations for replacements:
Miss Chow )      That Mr. M. D. Friesen and Mr. J. T. Kelsall be
Mr. Rutherford )      nominated to serve as student representatives on
the Senate Nominating Committee.
Dr. Elder ) That nominations close.
Dr. Slonecker  )
Carried
There being no further nominations Mr. Friesen and Mr. Kelsall were declared
elected.
Budget Committee  (P.8179)
Dr. Scudder presented the following report for information:
"At the December 15, 1983 meeting of Senate I presented a schedule for the 1984-85
Budget Planning Process. The minutes of that meeting record specific dates for
various parts of the planning process, and called for Vice-President Smith to submit
his recommendations to the President by February 28, 1984. The plan was then for
the President to submit his recommendations and rationale to the Senate Budget
Committee and the Executive Council in early March, and for the Senate Budget
Committee to submit its final report to Senate on March 21. 8192.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Business arising from the Minutes
Budget Committee  (continued)
"As members of Senate will know from the last meeting, I reported that the Budget
Committee had not received recommendations. I must again report that the
Committee has not received the recommendations from the President, although an
outline of some of the recommendations has been given to the Committee by Vice-
President Smith.
I would like to explain the reason for this delay, and then outline the timetable that is
now in place.
The schedule presented to Senate on December 15 assumed that the University would
know about the grant from U.C.B.C. for this year prior to February 28. In December
we anticipated that this would occur. However, it is important to note that the
University did not hear about the grant until April 5.
Vice-President Smith had discussions on schedule with the Deans during February, but
was unable to complete his task by February 28, owing to the lack of information on
the actual grant to UBC this year. Before attempting to produce a final
recommendation to the President, it seemed prudent to wait for the announcement on
the grant.
When the grant was announced on April 5, Vice-President Smith went back to the
Deans to obtain their response to the actual target figures he anticipates
recommending to the President: he needed to have accurate information on the
academic implications of the proposal. The Deans were asked to respond by April 9.
This they did and Vice-President Smith is now putting his final report together. He
expects to give this to the President on Wednesday, April 25.
I expect that the President will be seeking the advice of the Senate Budget
Committee soon after this. The Senate Budget Committee thus is planning to submit
its final report to Senate at its next meeting on May 23, 1984.
The Senate Budget Committee wishes to assure Senate that the budget planning
process, although delayed, has not been curtailed. The process of consultation will
proceed exactly as originally planned. Senate will be fully informed and consulted
where this is required by the University Act.
To illustrate that this planning process is still as we outlined on December 15, 1983, I
draw Senate's attention to the fact that the University does not yet have in place an
operating budget for 1984-85."
Vice-President Smith informed Senate that due to the reduction in the University's
operating grant for 1984-85 admission to the following programs would have to be
suspended:
Licentiate in Accounting
B.Ed, in Special Education
Diploma in Education of the Mentally Retarded
Library Education Concentration
Community Education as an optional professional program 8193.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Business arising from the Minutes
Budget Committee  (continued)
In response to a query Dr. Smith stated that admission would be suspended for
1984-85 but beyond that no decision could be made at this time.
Dean Birch stated that only those students entering the 5th year of the B.Ed,
program in Special Education will be permitted to complete the program;
arrangements were being made to accommodate the remainder of the students in the
program in other B.Ed, degree programs.
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations - subject, where
applicable, to the proviso that none of the programs be implemented without formal
reference to the President and the formal agreement of the President; and that the
Deans and Heads concerned with new programs be asked to indicate the space
requirements, if any, of such new programs.
(i)      Establishment of the UPS Foundation Chair in Regulation and Competition Policy
recommended by the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration (p.8185)
(ii)     Establishment of the Allan McGavin Chair in Geriatric Medicine recommended by
the Faculty of Medicine (p.8187-8)
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
Mr. McWilliams )      That the new awards (listed in the Appendix) be
Dean Beagrie      )     accepted subject to the approval of the Board of
Governors and that letters of thanks be sent to
the donors.
Mr. McWilliams stated that complications had arisen concerning the terms of the
Royal Canadian Legion Mount Pleasant Branch Scholarship and that consideration of
this item should therefore be deferred. He also noted that revisions to the wording of
the Francis V. Lumb Scholarship had been circulated at the meeting.
Following a brief discussion it was agreed that the Francis V. Lumb Scholarship be
excluded from the motion and discussed as a separate item. 8194.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries  (continued)
Senate's attention was drawn to the wording of the University of B. C. Entrance
Scholarships. It was suggested that the terms "... other factors such as leadership,
ability to serve and interest in sports..." were inappropriate as requirements for an
entrance scholarship, particularly since it would be difficult to assess such qualities
until students had been at the University for a year or more. It was also felt that
Senate should not accept an interest in sports as one of the recognized qualities of an
outstanding student applying for admission to the University.
In amendment:
Dr. Wisenthal ) That the words "... While ... other factors such as
Dr. Scudder     ) leadership, ability to serve and interest in sports
..."   be   deleted   from   the   description   of   the
University of B. C. Entrance Scholarships.
After further discussion the amendment was put and carried. The motion was
then put and carried.
Mr. McWilliams )     That the Francis V. Lumb Scholarship be accepted
Dr. Armerding   )      subject to the approval of the Board of Governors
and that a letter of thanks be sent to the donor.
It was stated in the material circulated that the scholarship would be awarded to
the undergraduate student who writes the best course essay that critically addresses,
from a radical perspective (Marxist, Utopian or otherwise), a topic in the fields of
politics and government, society, economy or international relations.
Several objections were raised to the inclusion of the phrase "... from a radical
perspective ...". Some members did not feel that it was appropriate for the University
to accept and give an award that requires a student to take a particular perspective.
After further discussion the motion was put and lost.
Reports of Committees or Senate
Admissions Committee
Limitation of Enrolment in First Year
Dr. Dahlie, Chairman of the Committee, presented the following report for
information. 8195.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Limitation of Enrolment in First Year  (continued)
"At its meeting on January 18, 1984 Senate resolved that for the 1984-85 Winter
Session, enrolment of new students in first year be limited to approximately 3,250
students. At that time the Faculties that admit students to first year were
requested to provide the Senate Admissions Committee with the maximum number
of new first year students that can be accommodated in first year.
The Senate Admissions Committee has received the submissions of the Faculties
and has approved the following quotas for new students in first year:
B.Sc. (Agr.)
80*
B.L.A.
20*
B.S.N.
55
B.A.
1500
B.H.E.

B.Ed. (Sec.)
43
B.Ed. (Spec.)
12
B.P.E.
45
B.R.E.
15
B.Sc.
1400
Total
3390
* Aggregate total, includes repeats and transfers from other degree programs.
Prior to 1984-85 no students have been admitted to first year university in
engineering. For that reason first year engineering was not included when it was
recommended that enrolment be limited to approximately 3,250 students. The
Faculty of Applied Science will accept a maximum of 100 students from senior
secondary school and a maximum of 400 transfer students from other U.B.C.
Faculties, colleges and other universities.
New students to the Native Indian Teacher Education Program have not been
included in the quota because the first two years of the program are conducted
off-campus. It is estimated that there will be approximately 50 new students in
the first year of the NITEP program.
Although the above figures exceed the approximately 3,250 figure approved by
Senate it is the opinion of the Senate Admissions Committee that the intent of the
limitation of enrolment is being observed."
Dr. Dahlie explained that the Senate Admissions Committee had had some
difficulty in reconciling the total number of new admission to first year which
resulted from the submissions of the Faculties with the limitation of
approximately 3,250 students approved by Senate at its meeting of January 18,
1984.   Part of the difficulty had resulted from the inability of some Faculties to 8196.
Wednesday, April   18,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Limitation of Enrolment in First Year  (continued)
separate the proportion of new first year admissions from repeats and transfer
from other Faculties. He went on to explain that in order to achieve a specified
number of new first year student registrations in September it is necessary to
admit numbers in excess of that figure to allow for no shows and that that also
presented difficulty.
Mr. Burnyeat sought clarification of whether the figures reported represented
new admissions or new registrations. The Registrar replied that the figures were
target registrations in September and that authorizations to register would be
issued to account for the average no show rate over the past three years.
In speaking to the figures reported Dean Will stated that he had difficulty in
agreeing that a total of 3,390 new first year students is in keeping with the spirit
of Senate's resolution restricting new first year students to approximately 3,250.
He further stated that he had had difficulty in responding to Senate's request for
the maximum number of new first-year students to be accommodated in the B.A.
degree program due to a dearth of hard data on first year enrolment. Dean Will
felt that some confidence would have to be placed in the Registrar's Office to get
some method into the intent of Senate's earlier resolution.
Following some further discussion Vice-President Smith thanked Dr. Dahlie
for the report and suggested that the concerns expressed be noted and drawn to
the attention of the Registrar.
Faculty of Arts - English Composition Test
Dr. Dahlie ) That where practicable, students must pass the
Dean Will    ) English Composition Test before taking their final
30 units in the Faculty of Arts, and in any case,
must pass it by the end of their 45th unit.
Students who have failed to satisfy this
requirement will not be permitted to register in
their final 15 units.
It was suggested that the wording of the regulation was not clear as to intent.
After further discussion it was agreed that the proposal be referred back to the
Senate Admissions Committee for clarification. 8197.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate  (continued)
Committee on Student Awards
Mr. McWilliams, Chairman of the Committee, presented the following report:
"Before Senate concludes its deliberations for 1983/84, the Committee wishes to
report on a new program to recognize outstanding students entering the University
and to resolve the outstanding item on the definition of "full program" for purposes of
the University Scholarship Program.
1. Major Entrance Scholarships
For several years, the Committee has discussed establishing a number of high
profile scholarships for students entering undergraduate programs at UBC.
Recently, the Mount Pleasant Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion offered to
provide a $5,000 scholarship for a student entering UBC from Grade XII. The
award is being presented for formal approval by Senate at the April meeting.
The income from a previously established entrance scholarship (Bert Henry
Memorial Scholarship) is now sufficient to enable the award to be valued at
$4,000.
In addition, the President's Office has now committed a total of $62,500 to
enable 25 new awards in the amount of $2,500 each to be offered to entering
students. These awards to be known as the University Entrance Scholarships are
also being presented for formal approval at the April Senate meeting. This will
enable the University to offer a total of 27 new scholarships worth $71,500 to
outstanding undergraduates entering the University for the first time.
Subject to continued satisfactory progress, these new awards will be renewed for
a further 3 years of study or until the first undergraduate degree is obtained
(whichever is the shorter peiod). Students entering from Grade XII will be
identified by their respective schools and it is anticipated that an announcement
of the winners will be made by mid July. A special Selection Committee will
screen the applications. Since an early decision on the winner is desirable, the
schools will be asked to provide details on the students' Grade XI and preliminary
Grade XII grades. Although we anticipate that the majority of applicants will
write the B.C. Government Scholarship Examinations, the grades obtained in
these examinations will not be a part of the Committee's evaluation.
It is intended that these awards be offered to students entering UBC from
Grade XII or a regional college in September, 1984.
2. Clarification of Full Program
In its report to Senate dated December 1983, the Committee outlined the basis
for determination of "full program" for purposes of the University Scholarship
Program. The Committee recommended that undergraduate students who were
registered for at least 95% of a full load as defined in the Calendar be considered
eligible for University Scholarships. Senate felt that 95% did not provide
sufficient latitude and accordingly the Committee has given the matter further
study. The Committee has now proposed that the definition of "full program" be
expanded to include students registered in at least 90% of a full program load, or
Ife units less than a full program load (whichever is greater). This proposal has
been circulated to the undergraduate Deans who have expressed general
agreement. The Committee recommends that Senate adopt the following
motion: 8198.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
" "Undergraduate students who are registered for 90% or more of a full
program load or who are registered for Ife units less than a full program
load (whichever is greater) will be considered as "full time" for purposes of
the University Scholarship Program. Full program load will be determined
from the current University Calendar."
Mr. McWilliams)       That the report be adopted.
Dean Burns        )
Carried
Ad hoc Committee to Review the Reports on Breadth
Dr. Williams, Chairman of the Committee, presented the following report:
"The committee was asked to "review the reports on breadth dated January 31, 1983
and the responses of the Faculties and Schools, and consider what measures Senate
should adopt to ensure that all appropriate undergraduate programs conform to the
principle expressed in the motion on breadth passed at the February 16, 1983 meeting
and further, that the committee report back at or before the February 15, 1984
meeting of Senate".
The committee first met on January 25th and the Chairman regrets that other
pressing issues have prevented him from presenting this report in time to meet the
February deadline.
The committee has studied the responses of the Faculties and concludes that the
diversity present in the University is such that the University-wide breadth
requirements proposed by Recommendations 2 and 3 of the Majority Report are ill-
advised. The programs presently in existence have all received the approval of the
Senate. It seems contrary to Senate tradition to impose retroactive reviews, which in
some instances will be difficult to accommodate without impairing the program.
It is clear from the responses received that all Faculties subscribe to the principle
that students should receive a broad response to a variety of disciplines. They,
however, differ as to how this should be achieved. This the committee feels to be
entirely appropriate, and they would encourage faculties and departments to tailor
their programs as they see fit to ensure reasonable conformity with
Recommendation I of the Majority Report.
The committee was also asked to define the degree programs to be included in these
recommendations. The committee felt it appropriate to include only those degree
programs which commence in First or Second Year of normal university study.
Programs, such as Architecture, Law and Medicine, which select students who have
already completed at least three undergraduate years, are deemed to include the
student's breadth as one of the considerations governing admission to those programs,
and are thereby exempted. 8199.
Wednesday, April   18,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee to Review the Reports on Breadth  (continued)
"The committee position may be summarized by expressing the view that efforts to
impose breadth through University-wide requirements are unlikely to achieve the
intended objective. Students are far more likely to accept requirements
recommended by their own Faculties. Students with intellectual curiosity will, as far
as they are allowed to do so, take advantage of the diverse offerings of the University
without the need for specific requirements. To encourage this it is important to
minimize     the     impediments. Accordingly,    the    committee    subscribes    to
Recommendation 4 of the Majority Report. The committee also regrets the recent
decision to set student fees in the Faculties of Arts, Education and Science on a per
unit basis since it inhibits the student who is interested in taking additional courses
for reasons of breadth."
The recommendations referred to in the report are outlined below:
Recommendation I:
"That Senate approve the principle that all students should receive a broad
exposure to a variety of disciplines in addition to a specialized education in their
chosen field of study before completing any baccalaureate degree."
Recommendation 2:
"That Senate adopt the following statement to define the requirement for breadth
in pre-baccalaureate programs, and that this or a similar statement become
effective for students beginning a program in September 1984 or subsequently, and
that all departments and faculties shall make the necessary revisions to their
programs by that date.
Proposed Calendar Statement
BREADTH OF STUDY IN PRE-BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS
In addition to any other degree or program requirement, all students must
complete 15 units in courses that satisfy the University requirement for breadth
of sfudy before completing any baccalaureate degree.
This requirement is as follows:
i)     3 units in courses in each of the following categories I, II, and III, and 6 units
of courses in category IV:
I Mathematical Studies and Analysis;
II Physical and Biological Sciences;
III Social and Behavioural Sciences;
IV Humanities and the Arts.
Courses must be selected from those listed below. No course can be used to meet
the requirements of more than one category. 8200.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee to Review the Reports on Breadth
Recommendation 2:
Proposed Calendar Statement (continued)
"ii)    At least 3 units of courses in Category IV must be from list IV A - Language,
Literature and the Arts.
iii)   The courses selected must include:
a) at least one course that deals with a foreign culture that is significantly
different from that of Canada, and is designated (a);
b) at least one course that has a historical orientation, and is designated
(b)."
This calendar statement would be followed by lists of acceptable courses, designated
(a) and/or (b) where appropriate.
Recommendation 3:
"The Senate Curriculum Committee should recommend lists of courses that satisfy
the breadth requirements in each category, for adoption by Senate."
Recommendation 4:
"Every pre-baccalaureate program should allow a minimum of three units of free
electives."
Dr. Williams  ) That      the      report     be     adopted     and     that
Dr. Cook ) Recommendation 4 be approved.
Dr. Suedfeld stated that he had hoped that the committee would have submitted
university-wide suggestions and guidelines rather than issue a statement which
essentially suggests that the Faculties continue to set the standards for breadth. He
pointed out that many students were in favour of breadth but under current practices
the pursuit of breadth was discouraged.
After further discussion it was agreed that the Senate Curriculum Committee be
required to pay close attention to Recommendation I in assessing the proposals of the
Faculties.
The motion was put and carried.
The Chairman noted that the committee was now discharged. 8201.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Report of the Librarian 1982-83
The report of the Librarian had been circulated for information. The Librarian,
Mr. Mclnnes, stated that he was pleased to report that there had been further increases
in library usage in the current year but at the same time drew attention to the
diminishing resources available to meet those demands. He noted that the number of
staff hours had decreased by 13% since 1970 and that in the coming year the Library
would lose a further 13 or 14 positions due to budget reductions. It was impossible to
absorb this loss of staff and provide adequate service to the University. He stated that
there were few service changes that the Library could make in order to offset the loss
of staff. The only reduction expected for next year would be in the hours of operation
and the Library was at the point where such measures could no longer be postponed.
However, this would represent less than 8% of the total reduction in the Librarian's
1984/85 budget.
Mr. Mclnnes also referred to the lack of space and noted that as many as 70,000
volumes would have to be removed from the Main Library stacks to closed storage but
that even that option would soon be exhausted.
In response to a query, Mr. Mclnnes stated that serials expenditures would
probably increase next year to 57% of the collections budget which was still within the
guidelines established by Senate.
Mr. Mclnnes read to Senate the following tribute from the Senate Library
Committee to Dean Larkin:
"That the Senate Library Committee express its gratitude to Peter Larkin,
on the occasion of his retirement from the Chair of the Committee,
for his leadership in chairing the Committee;
- for the vision he has demonstrated in defining the role of the Library,
both now and in the future;  and
- for his contribution in championing the Library's cause - not only in
Senate and on campus, but also with influential bodies outside the
University.
Dean Larkin expressed thanks and appreciation to the Librarian and his staff.
President's Report 1982-83
The President's report for 1982-83 had been circulated for information. 8202.
Wednesday,  April   18,   1984.
Proposals of the Faculties
Faculty of Applied Science and Faculty of Arts
Proposals concerning examination periods and pre-registration from the Faculty
of Applied Science and a proposal from the Faculty of Arts concerning pre-
registration had been circulated.
The Agenda Committee recommended that the motions concerning
pre-registration be referred to the President's Committee on Registration and that
the matter of examination periods be deferred until such time as that committee has
reported.
Dean Finnegan )       That     the     recommendation     of     the     Agenda
Dean Webber     )       Committee be approved.

Suspended Licentiate and Education Programs
A query was raised concerning what would happen to students currently enrolled
in the suspended Licentiate and Education programs if they failed courses that they
would be unable to repeat because the courses were no longer being offered.
Dean Lusztig stated that if a student were to fail one of the courses specific to
the Licentiate program, the student would be allowed to substitute other courses.
Dean Birch stated that only those entering the final year of the B.Ed, in Special
Education will be able to complete the program. Those students in the First, Second,
Third and part of the Fourth Year will be accommodated in the B.Ed. (Elementary)
program and will not get the full selection of special education courses that they
otherwise would have. They will be allowed to obtain a special education
concentration which is a lesser degree of specialization.

Academy of General Dentistry, British Columbia Chapter Award - An award in the
amount of $250 together with a certificate of merit has been offered by the Academy
