Dr. Leung was born in Kongmoon, China, and was educated at The
University of British Columbia and at McGill, where he earned a B.Sc.
and a Doctorate in Dental Surgery in 1945. Five years later he was
awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester. Always an outstanding
student, Wah Leung stood first in his class, both as an undergraduate
and as a graduate student. 9632.

Memorial Minutes (continued)
After a distinguished career at the University of California, where he
was appointed as the first Professor of Oral Biology, Dr. Leung accepted
the challenging task of becoming the founding Dean of Dentistry at The
University of British Columbia in 1962. His many duties included an
active role in the design of the dental building, the development of a
four year curriculum, the recruitment of teaching and research faculty,
and the selection and admission of the first class of students.
Wah Leung demonstrated excellence in all his endeavours. His research
on the nature and behaviour of saliva was widely acclaimed. His vision
of dental education was well ahead of its time. He was an able
administrator, an outstanding teacher and an uncompromisingly honest
colleague. He served on the Senate from 1962 until 1977.
Dean Leung was also a highly respected voice in the Chinese community.
He received numerous awards, attesting to his commitment to culture and
humanity, among which was his appointment as Officer of the Order of
Canada in 1987.
Wah Leung was an outstanding scholar and administrator, a brilliant
researcher, and above all, a gentle and gracious human being. His
legacy to the Health Sciences in Canada will be long remembered.
To his wife, Ming Ren, and to his surviving family, the Senate of The
University of British Columbia extends its deepest sympathy.
Dr. Dennison  )  That the memorial statement for
Dr. Bressler   )  S. Wah Leung be spread on the
minutes of Senate and that a copy

IN MEMORIAM
MALCOLM FRANCIS MCGREGOR (1910-1989)
Malcolm Francis McGregor, one of this university's finest teachers and
long respected voice on academic affairs, died on November 16, 1989.
Dr. McGregor was born in London, England, in 1910 and later emigrated
with his family to Creston, British Columbia, where he completed his
high school studies. He entered this university in 1926 and earned both
the B.A. and M.A. degrees. After a brief period of teaching at the
University of Michigan, Malcolm McGregor enrolled at the University of
Cincinnati, earning his doctorate in 1937. 9633.
December 13, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Tributes Committee
Memorial Minutes (continued)
After a successful period of teaching and research at Cincinnati, Dr.
McGregor accepted the position of Head of Classics at his Alma Mater in
195 4, a post he held with pride and dedication until his retirement in
1975.
Malcolm McGregor served on this body for fourteen years where he became
known as the "conscience" of Senate. His deep love for this university,
its traditions and its standards compelled him to raise his voice
against any act or word which he perceived to be in violation of these
values. Often criticized, always respected, Malcolm McGregor never
compromised when his views were challenged. Neither administration, nor
faculty, nor the student body escaped his critical admonition when their
behaviours fell short of his expectations.
A true renaissance scholar, Malcolm McGregor upheld the Athenian ideals
on the field of sport. He dedicated much of his life to playing,
coaching and refereeing field hockey and cricket, both of which he saw
as diversions of the pure amateur, who played simply for the joy of
effort. He loved competition, but for its own sake.
Dr. McGregor fulfilled many roles in the service of the university and
the wider community; Director of Residences, Director of Ceremonies,
and the Joint Board of Teacher Education, being only a few. In each
role he acted with dignity, dedication and authority.
He was the recipient of numerous awards and distinctions but, in his own
judgement, two stood above all others. One was the Master Teacher Award
in 1974 which he accepted with the pride which comes with recognition of
what one does best. The second was the Award of Merit from the American
Philological Association for his co-authoring of the Athenian Tribute
Lists, a renowned study of the zenith of Greek culture in the fifth
century.
He received honorary degrees from three universities including, to his
great delight, his own.
Malcolm McGregor lived as he believed. He was the embodiment of the
true university professor, he respected tradition, loved teaching,
valued the unity of mind and body, and pursued every task with energy
and total commitment. He will be much missed and long remembered.
To his surviving family the Senate of The University of British Columbia
extends its deepest sympathy.
Dr. Dennison  )  That the memorial statement for
Rev. Burns    ) Malcolm Francis McGregor be spread
on the minutes of Senate and that
a copy be sent to the relatives of
the deceased.
Carried 9634.
December 13, 1989
Faculty of Medicine
Centre for Transplantation Immunobiology
Dean Webber   ) That the academic structure of the
Dr. Bressler  ) Centre for Transplantation Immunobiology
be approved.
It was stated in the material circulated that organ transplantation has
become an important clinical, research and educational program within the
Faculty of Medicine.  However, it is complicated by the fact that it
operates provincially under the B.C. Transplant Society in collaboration
with a number  of  teaching hospitals and  the Faculty of  Medicine.
Individuals holding appointments in a variety of departments and divisions
are involved in the program.  The Faculty of Medicine therefore felt it
was important to clarify the administrative reporting arrangements with
respect to the clinical service activities as well as the academic
activities.  The charts circulated reflected the efforts to define
reporting relationships which will foster  the development of  strong
programs, while at the same time maintaining the normal university and
hospital relationships.
The motion was put and carried.
Report of the Registrar on the Academic Year
Dr. Spencer noted that the Academic Year was normally brought to the
December meeting of Senate for approval. He explained that this had been
delayed due to consideration of proposals to hold the orientation ceremony
at a date later than Thursday of the first week of classes in September
1990, and to hold a Convocation ceremony in November 1990. However, it was
anticipated that these issues would be resolved in the near future and that
a final recommendation to Senate on the 1990/91 Academic Year would be
brought  to  the  January  meeting.   Dr.  Spencer  also  mentioned  that 9635.
December 13, 1989
Report of the Registrar on the Academic Year  (continued)
consideration was being given to recommending to Senate that it approve a
four-day Convocation ceremony in May 1990, which would mean amending the
Academic Year that was approved at the December 1988 Senate meeting.
Other business
Task Force on Continuing Education
In response to a query the Chairman confirmed that it was expected that
there would be input from the Senate Committee on Continuing Education in
connection with the Report of the President's Task Force on Continuing
Education.
Senate membership
Vice-President Birch expressed thanks and appreciation to Dr. David
Dolphin for the contributions he had made to Senate during his term as
Acting Dean of the Faculty of Science.
Report of the Tributes Committee  (in camera)
Honorary Degrees
At the previous meeting Senate passed a resolution requesting the
Tributes Committee to return to Senate at the next meeting with the names
of one or more candidates of First Nations background to add to the list
of Honorary Degrees during the 75th anniversary year.
The committee recommended that invitations be extended to the following
persons to receive honorary degrees at the 1990 Congregation Ceremonies:
Simon Baker
- former councillor,  public  lecturer  and actor
Elizabeth Rose Charlie
- President,     Indian    Homemaker's    Association    of    B.C.     and    Community
Member,  National Parole Board
Phyllis Chelsea
- Social Development Counsellor 9636.
December 13, 1989
Report of the Tributes Committee
Honorary Degrees  (continued)
Dr. Dennison      ) That the recommendations of the
Chancellor Peterson ) Tributes Committee concerning
additional Honorary Degrees be approved.
Carried
Honorary Degrees - Criteria
The following proposal concerning criteria for awarding honorary degrees
was circulated at the meeting:
"The existing guidelines are as follows:
The award of an honorary degree is a recognition by The University of
British Columbia of distinguished achievment or of outstanding
service.
Nominees should be distinguished scholars, creative artists, public
servants, persons prominent in the community and the professions, and
others who have made significant contributions to the life of the
University, the Province, or nationally or internationally.
The overriding criteria for the award of an honorary degree should be
excellence, eminence and accomplishment.
Given that this statement does not directly address a number of
questions e.g.
- whether individuals connected with the faculty, Senate, Board, or
administration of UBC could be considered candidates,
- whether philanthropy in itself is acceptable as a principal
qualification for an honorary doctorate
- whether individuals holding political office, or any office having
to do with university grants, could be considered candidates,
- whether a given slate of candidates should indicate a balance of
ethnic, regional, linguistic, gender, or other characteristics,
- whether the granting of an honorary degree could be considered, in
certain cases, essentially a recognition of contribution to the
university itself rather than strictly a recognition of that which
should be valued far beyond the university boundaries,
and that it seems hardly appropriate to have discussions of these
questions when a given slate of candidates is being considered, 9637.
December 13, 1989
Honorary Degrees - Criteria (continued)
perhaps Senate might wish the Tributes Committee to review these and
related matters and bring a report and recommendation to the March
Senate meeting."
Dr. Hill      ) That the Tributes Committee be asked
Dr. Auld      )  to review these and related matters.
The Chairman felt that it would not be appropriate to bring forward
recommendations before the honorary degrees for 1990 had been awarded.
The motion was put and carried.
The meeting adjourned at 9.05 p.m.
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, January
17, 1990.

Course and curriculum proposals
FACULTY OF ARTS
General B.A. Program
This program permits a student, in consultation with an assigned adviser,
to select courses that will provide a broad liberal education encompassing
several disciplines with a limited concentration in at least one
discipline. It is not intended as preparation for graduate studies and
admission to most graduate programs will require that the student complete
further work in the field of graduate specialization. With appropriate
selection of courses and high standing the general program can provide
suitable preparation for many post-B.A. professional programs.
Admission to the General B.A. Program
Students are normally admitted to the general B.A. program after the
successful completion of 30 units of course work acceptable for credit
toward the B.A. degree. Students who have successfully completed between
30 and 45 units may be admitted if their average mark on all courses
attempted is at least 60%. Students who have credit for more than 45
units toward the B.A. degree will not be admitted to the general B.A.
program.
To be accepted into the general B.A. program a student must have completed
English 100 (or Arts 1) and must have satisfied the language requirement
for the B.A. degree.
All students intending to enrol in the general B.A. program must submit an
application to the Board of Studies.
Requirements for the General B.A. Degree
The general Faculty of Arts requirements for the B.A. degree must be
satisfied: at least 60 units of credit in courses acceptable for the B.A.
degree, including 2 4 units at the 300 and 400 levels, and the specific
requirements for English 100 (or Arts I), language, literature and
science. The English composition test must be passed prior to enrolment
for the last 15 units.
All courses acceptable for credit toward the general B.A. degree have been
classified into four categories: a) Humanities; b) Creative and
Performing Arts;  c) Social Sciences;  d) Sciences.
The list of courses in each category may be obtained from the Board of
Studies for the General B.A.
Within the last 30 units required for the general B.A. degree, the student
must complete:
- at least 15 units of 300 or 400 level courses in one category,
including 9 units (but no more than 9 units) from one discipline 96 41.

Upon acceptance into the program each student will be assigned an
adviser. After acceptance, each student, in consultation with the
assigned adviser, must prepare a program of courses for the third and
fourth years. That program, when approved, may only be altered with the
consent of the adviser. Before the student enrols for the final 15 units,
the program of courses must be reviewed with the assigned adviser, revised
if appropriate and approved.
