Accreditation  reports   (continued)
In the material circulated to Senate it was stated that the review of many
professional Faculties, Schools and other teaching units of the University by
external accreditation groups had important beneficial effects but since the
University Senate was charged with determining academic policy it was felt that

and should be in a position to accept or reject their proposals.

appropriate body to deal with accreditation reports.   It was pointed out that
these reports were normally referred directly to the President and in view of
the confidential nature of these accreditation reports it was felt that the present
method of handling them should be continued.

prepared to answer any questions raised by
Senate members concerning the submissions.
Dr. McGregor referred to Recommendation 2 of the 1973 report of the
Committee on the Role & Organization of Senate which stated that the Agenda

program group and the Graduate Council of the Faculty of
Education consider most or all prerequisites already to be met.
2. In special circumstances, as determined by the program group
concerned and by the Dean of Education's Committee on Graduate
Admissions, teacher training may be waived for those applicants
who have - (a)   a university degree with standing sufficient for

Dean Andrews gave notice of the following motion: -
"That Senate recommend to the Nominating Committee that Faculty member
positions on the Senate Budget Committee be drawn in rotation from among
the various Faculties of the University with the understanding that members
of the committee be expected to perform an objective university-wide role."
Board of Governors membership
It had been agreed that discussion of this item would be held in camera.
Members of the gallery were asked to leave.
Dr. Clark        ) That the Senate of The University of British
Dr. Shearer   ) Columbia regrets the action by the Government
of British Columbia in removing two appointed
members of the Board of Governors of this
University prior to the completion of their term
of office.
Dr. Clark stated that the motion was in no way an implied criticism of the
two recently appointed Board members, Mr. Brissenden and Mr. Greenwood.   He
stated that the motion, if passed, would not undo the action taken by the Government
but would express concern on the part of Senate.
The essential reason for concern was that members of the Board of Governors
were expected to exercise their individual judgement on the issues before them and
were not delegates carrying out instructions from those to whom they owed their
position on the Board.   If Senate agreed then it should express its disagreement
with the Government of any party which removes appointed Board members before
the expiration of their term of office when there is no valid ground suggested for
their dismissal.   Dr. Clark stated that appointed members of the Board, like appointed 6595.

Board of Governors membership   (continued)
members of Senate could best perform their responsibilities if they did not risk
removal from office during their term of appointment because their views were not
in accordance with those of the Government.
Senate was informed that the Alma Mater Society and the Student Representative
Assembly had passed motions opposing the action taken by the Government.
Other opinions were expressed that Board appointments or termination of
Board appointments was not the business of Senate.
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried.
The meeting adjourned at 10.50 p.m.
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, May 19,  1976.
