Senate membership
The Chairman welcomed to Senate Dean Nancy Sheehan of the Faculty of
Education. Dean Sheehan replaces Acting Dean T. D. McKie.
Minutes of previous meeting
Dr. Tennant   ) That the minutes of the Eighth regular
Dr. Gilbert   ) meeting of Senate for the Session 1986-87,
having been circulated, be taken as read
and adopted. 8980.
May 20, 1987
Minutes of previous meeting  (continued)
Senate agreed to Dr. Wisenthal's suggestion that the following
corrections be made to the first paragraph of the report of the Admissions
Committee on 1987/88 Enrolment Quotas and Controls, page 8974:
That the first line be amended to read:  "Dr. Finnegan informed Senate
that the Faculty of Arts had reviewed..."
That the word "therefore" in the fifth line be deleted.
That  the  word  "qualified"  be  inserted  before  "students"  in  the
penultimate line of the last sentence.
The motion was put and carried.
Chairman's remarks and related questions
Dr. Strangway drew Senate's attention to the material circulated at the
meeting concerning the President's Task Force to Review the Office of the
Registrar. He stated that the review will take place during the summer and
that the review committee will be instructed to submit its recommendations
by September 1, 1987. Dr. Strangway further stated that while the basic
composition of the review committee had been laid out, the individual
membership of the committee had not yet been struck and that he would
welcome any comments or recommendations from senators with respect to the
membership.
In referring to the Presidential Advisory Committee on the selection of
a Registrar, Dr. Strangway said that the procedures established by the Board
of Governors and approved by Senate in May 1979 will be followed. He stated
that a notice will be sent out calling for nominations to be submitted no
later than June 30, 1987 for three members of Senate, including one student,
to serve on the committee. A mail ballot will then take place, with the
expectation that the membership of the committee will be established by the
end of August. 8981.
May 20, 1987
Chairman's remarks and related questions  (continued)
Dr. Strangway reminded Senate that a major fund-raising campaign was
being organized. He informed Senate that a case statement was being
prepared for use in a market survey to take place in September, and that an
advisory committee would be monitoring procedures with respect to the market
survey. A draft of the case statement will be circulated, during the
summer, for information and comment.
Dr. Strangway informed Senate that a final draft of a report on the role
of the universities in the economic development of British Columbia had been
prepared by the three universities, and stated that this would be circulated
for comment after further discussions with the Presidents of the other two
universities.
In conclusion, Dr. Strangway announced that the three universities were
planning the appointment of a person to act in such matters as arranging
meetings of Presidents, Vice-Presidents or other groups and to help develop
a system for the presentation of information to the government. It was
hoped that this appointment would make the coordination among the three
universities more substantive than in the past. The person appointed will
report to the three Presidents.
In response to a query, Dr. Strangway confirmed that three of the seven
members of the Presidential Advisory Committee on the selection of a
Registrar would be elected by Senate, and that one of the three members
would be a student.
Dean Beagrie extended congratulations to Dr. Strangway on his approach
to the management and governance of the University. He also drew attention
to Dr. Strangway's efforts and influence in bringing to the attention of the
government, matters of importance to all three universities. 8982.
May 20, 1987
Chairman's remarks and related questions (continued)
In response to a further query, Dr. Strangway informed Senate that the
Mission Statement was now in its second draft and that it would be widely
circulated for further comments. Relevant parts would be brought to Senate
in the fall for formal action.
Correspondence
The Secretary read to Senate a letter received from Miss Katherine
Andrew expressing appreciation for the tribute paid to her late father
Mr. G. C. Andrew.
Candidates for Degrees
Lists of candidates for degrees, as approved by the various Faculties
and Schools, were made available for inspection by Senate members prior to
the meeting.
Dr. Finnegan ) That the candidates for degrees and diplomas,
Dr. Tennant ) as approved by the Faculties and Schools, be
granted the degree or diploma for which they
were recommended, and that the Registrar, in
consultation with the Deans and the Chairman
of Senate, make any necessary adjustments.
It was noted that the name of Olav Naas had been removed from the list
of candidates for the B.A.Sc. degree approved by the Faculty of Applied
Science. An amendment was moved to add the name of Mr. Naas to the list.
It was explained that Mr. Naas, a deaf student, had had some difficulty with
the English Composition Test. The Faculty had, however, recommended
Mr. Naas for the degree.
It was pointed out that it was within the Faculty's purview to recommend
Mr. Naas for the degree and therefore an amendment was not necessary.
The motion to approve the list of candidates for degrees, including
Mr. Naas, was put and carried. 8983.
May 20, 1987
Scholarships and Awards
A list of scholarships, medals and prizes awarded to students in the
graduating classes was circulated for information.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Building Needs
Dr. Stager, Chairman of the Committee, presented the following report:
"The report is to inform Senate about the status of the UCBC Five Year
Capital Building Plan, the Library expansion, and the changing
circumstances that influence priorities for new space and how they are
determined.

May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Building Needs  (continued)
ii) At the time of submission, approval in principle had been given by
UCBC for items 1, 2, and 3.
iii) During the interval since 1982, the Ministry permitted planning
funds to be released for projects 1, 2, 3, and 4, and provided the
funds for completion of 5, the Pulp and Paper Centre.
iv) Now that UCBC has been disbanded, and there is a new government,
the status of the 5 year plan is unknown.
v) Recent negotiations with the Ministry have reconfirmed the support
for the Chemistry/Physics building (now $16m) and the Campus
Services (Physical Plant) building (now $9m) with the release of
funds expected imminently.
2. Library Expansion
i) Following the latest resolution by Senate in April 1985, asking
that the President give a very high priority to new library space
in the University's plans for capital fund raising, and further,
urging the President to give this need high priority for private
fund raising to be joined with government participation (Senate
minutes p.8389, 8390), the Board of Governors on July 4, 1985,
designated the Old Bookstore site for the expansion of the Library
and recognized the project as a high priority for fund raising.
ii) In February 1987, the President appointed an Advisory Committee to
review Library needs and develop plans for the Old Bookstore site
to include the David Lam Management Research Library and other
elements of the Library system. The plans being prepared will not
be the same as those submitted to UCBC in 1982.
iii) Both the Senate resolution and the Board minutes cite the urgency
of the Library need and the Senate particularly mentioned private
sources of funds in co-operation with government.
iv) it is expected that the Library Expansion will be a top priority
as a pilot project for public fund raising via the strategies
being generated by the Presidential Advisory Committee on
Development Policy and the work of the Development Office.
Included in this planning will be opportunity for government
participation.
3. Observations and  Changes
i) The 1982 list of building projects contains many proposals which
were not brought to the attention of the SABN Committee. While
some are not academic buildings per se, many have implications for
academic programs and the space for those programs.  Indeed three 8985.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Building Needs
3.   Observations and Changes  (continued)
projects, Engineering Expansion II and III, and the Life Sciences
Expansion are directly academic. The implication of interleafing
projects with those recommended by the SABN Committee is to extend
the time horizon and diminish the prospects for meeting
established SABN priorities.
ii) With almost no action by the Ministry on building requests as we
near the end of the 5 year plan period, there are many changes in
the Campus circumstances that were not considered in the priority
setting by the SABN Committee and by the President's Office.
These include:
- changes in academic programs - deletions and additions
- programs of excellence initiatives
- other major research/grant initiatives
- the completion of new buildings which might house some academic
functions
- the prospect of non-university space being released for
University use
- space reorganization proposals by co-operating academic units
iii) The administrative machinery for dealing with physical space -
both present and projected - has become more intricate.
a) President's Office
The President has established a President's Advisory Committee on
Space Allocation
Associated with this Committee is support for gathering and
analyzing appropriate space information, including inventory,
functional classification, quality, etc., and planning standards
for functional allocation and entitlement.
The Committee assigns new space or building initiatives to
sub-committees. The Library Space Planning Committee is an
example.
Ministry capital maintenance or improvement of existing space is
to be allocated by the Advisory Committee on Space Allocation from
submissions through Deans of Faculties or Directors of other
service units.
b) Senate
The Senate Committee on Academic Building Needs is charged with
reviewing all Capital Building proposals involving academic space. 8986.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Building Needs (continued)
Summary
The Committee, and Senate, will see that events have overtaken and
possibly altered SABN priorities approved in 1983.  Also new committees
have  been established,  and  the  routes for  advice and  decisions
expanded.  The Committee recommends:
1. That the roles of the SABN Committee and the President's Advisory
Committee on Space Allocation be considered jointly by the Chairmen
of both committees, and that Senate receive a report against which it
may determine the future responsibilities of the SABN Committee.
2. Following any redefinition of the SABN Committee mandate, the
existing priorities for new buildings should be reassessed."
Dr. Stager    ) That recommendations 1 and 2 of the
Dr. Auld     ) Report of the Senate Committee on
Academic Building Needs be approved.
Dean Will reminded Senate that in 1985 he had requested information on
the fate of the 1982 report of the Committee on Academic Building Needs
containing the academic building priorities approved by Senate. In
response to that request a report was circulated to Senate in September
1985, containing information similar to that in Table I of the 1987 report.
Dean Will stated that in comparing the 1982 list with the list before
Senate tonight, there seemed to be a number of large sized projects that
had been interleafed. He felt that any list that had been on the shelf
for five years needed re-thinking, but that it was pointless to do so
unless Senate had some assurance that all and not just some clearly
academic buildings were going to be vetted and approved by the committee.
He further stated that while he recognized that non-academic facilities
for the University as a whole might have to be superimposed on the
priorities approved by Senate, it was a different matter when the list 8987.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Building Needs  (continued)
contained academic buildings that had been parachuted in, totally
disrupting those priorities approved by Senate. There was no point in
having a Senate committee if there was some other committee, or persons,
as indicated in the report, changing the priorities approved by Senate.
On a point of clarification, Mr. Mclnnes stated that the Library had not
been given a ranking because it was a special project, and that the 53.5
million dollars quoted was irrelevant since it had involved total
reconstruction of the main library whereas a much more modest project was
now being considered.
The motion was put and carried.
Admissions Committee
School of Music - 1987/88 Enrolment Quotas
Dr. Finnegan reported that the Committee had accepted a revision to
the enrolment quotas for the School of Music, as follows:
First Year 56
Second Year 25
Third Year  25
Major and Honours Programs in Economics - enrolment controls
The Committee had considered the following proposal on admission to
the Major and Honours Programs in Economics:
"Admission to the Major and Honours Programs
Admission to the Major and Honours program in Economics is not
automatic. To be admitted students must submit a formal
application. Because there are a limited number of places some
students who satisfy the minimum prerequisites may not be admitted.
Currently selection for admission is by merit based on the overall 8988.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Major and Honours Programs in Economics - enrolment controls  (continued)
standing in 24 units of credit applicable to the B.A. program. These
units must include English 100, Economics 100, and Mathematics 140
and 141 (or equivalents). Non-majors who are eligible to take
Economics 490 may be admitted to the fourth year of the program if
places become available. Students who are considering a Major or
Honours program in Economics are strongly encouraged to seek advice
on their program from Department Advisers on completion of their
first year.
Application
A written application for admission to the Major and Honours program
should be received by July 15 prior to registering for the third year
to ensure that the student will be considered for admission. The
letter of application must be accompanied by official transcripts of
the student's record from every post-secondary educational
institution that he or she has attended."
It was stated in the report that the Committee supported the basic
philosophy of the Faculty of Arts and the Department of Economics to
maintain the content and quality of the Economics program by instituting
enrolment controls as outlined in the attached document. However, the
Committee had identified potential problems in the effective
implementation of the procedures and processes necessary to accomplish
enrolment quotas at the department level and, as a result, the Committee
intends to monitor the process, as outlined by the Faculty and
Department, through the summer of 1987 and report to Senate in the Fall
of 1987.
Objections were raised to the implementation of the enrolment
restrictions this year. It was felt that students had not been given
adequate notice. 8989.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Major and Honours Programs in Economics - enrolment controls (continued)
Senate was informed that a statement advising students of the
proposed controls, together with instructions to contact the Department
of Economics by mid-July, would be included with each transcript. It
was also noted that announcements had already been made by the
Department's instructors in second year courses.
Budget Committee
In the absence of the Chairman of the Committee, Dr. Holsti presented
the following report which had been circulated for information:
"Budget Planning
Early in 1986 the Committee discussed four major components of the
budget planning process at the University, namely
(i)  the need for a three-year funding plan;
(ii)  the need to recognize increasing costs in the base operating
budget;
(iii) the need for an adequate base operating funding;  and
(iv) models for "add-on" funding.
The University submitted a position paper to the Universities Council
concerning suggested changes to the funding formula used to distribute
the Government grant to the three B.C. Universities. The Committee
emphasized a need to stress the pre-eminent role of research at UBC.
Budget Submissions
Following the 1986-04-09 issuance of the Ministry's guidelines for
submission of proposals to the Fund for Excellence in Education
proposals, the three Universities agreed to cooperate in making a joint
proposal concerning the stabilization of base operating budgets.
Stabilizing the Base Operating Budget (Joint Universities Proposal)
This joint University proposal was discussed by the Budget Committee and
contained the following main components.
(i)  Merit driven salary increases for faculty
Extensive comparative data were provided on average salaries at other
Canadian Universities, and salary profiles at UBC.  These data were 8990.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee
Stabilizing the Base Operating Budget (Joint Universities Proposal)
(continued)
submitted to the Ministry by the three Universities on April 30, 1986.
The 1986/87 and the 1987/88 submissions for "merit driven salary
increases" were as follows:
1986/87    1987/88     1988/8 9     1989/90
1986/87 request     5%        6% 7%
1987/88 request 8.5%        8.5%        8.5%
At its meeting on September 10, 1986, the Committee welcomed the
announcement from the Board of Governors Employee Relations Committee,
concerning competitive faculty salaries, having noted previously that
the percentage increase described above would not be sufficient for this.
(ii) Faculty adjustments and Faculty renewal
This item included funds for handling Early Termination Agreements, and
Early Retirements at 2.5%, 2.0% and 1.5% over 3 years, plus a request
for Bridge Funding for Outstanding New Appointments at 1.0%, 1.5% and
2.0% over 3 years. The 1987/88 request extended the 3.5 percent request
to 1989/90.
(iii) Market-driven Non-faculty Salaries
With a 25% turn-over in clerical/secretarial staff, the need is to pay
competitive salaries. At more senior levels the salary was 12% behind
market competition. The request was for 2.3%, 2.3% and 3.0% over the 3
years. The 1987/88 request called for 3.5% plus 2% for special
adjustments for clerical and for Administrative & Professional staff.
(iv)  Non-wage Inflation
The request was for 4% to account for the effects of inflation, with the
Library being treated separately with a request of 8% each year: the
1987/88 submission requested 5% and 8% respectively. Insurance costs
have increased dramatically and a 4% increase was requested. The
Committee noted that UBC does not have any earthquake coverage.
(v) Research and Graduate Studies
The three universities' proposal identified three areas for additional
sustained provincial funding, namely
(a) support of individuals with excellent records for research
(b) provision of equipment both for research and the training of
graduate students, and
(c) scholarship support for the best graduate students. 8991.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee
(v) Research and Graduate Studies  (continued)
These requests totalled $15.6 million above the base budget over the
three years, with the proposed split being UBC 65%, SFU 18% and U.Vic
17%. Similar requests were incorporated in the 1987/88 operating budget
submission from the three universities.
2. UBC Request for Stabilizing the Base Operating Budget
The UBC proposal was discussed by the Committee and contained the
following parts:
(i)  Excellence in Computing
(a) Computing Capacity Upgrade
(b) Telephone Service Strategic Upgrade
(c) A high-speed data communications facility
(d) Centralized administrative applications
(ii) UBC Library: a unique provincial resource
(iii) Hospital Space and New Space costs
(iv) Reducing ebergy costs
(v)   Increased productivity and efficiency in administration units
3. Centre of Excellence Proposals
Two entire meetings of the Committee were spent on this item. Concern
was expressed over the relationship between the various Centre of
Excellence proposals, the priorities of academic units, and previous
retrenchment discussions.
The Committee was worried about the long-term funding of any Centres.
It was pointed out that if they are built on current excellence and
strength, ongoing support is more likely than if they were d_e novo
developments with no guarantee of sustaining themselves.
The University eventually submitted an extensive list of proposals, with
Biotechnology at the top of the list.
Operating Budget Guidelines
In the 1986/8 7 Operating Budget, it was noted that UCBC had decided not
to depart from the traditional split among the three BC Universities.
There was a $1.0 million reduction from the 1985-86 grant to UBC.
In a discussion of the 1986/87 Operating Budget and the short-fall on
faculty salaries, the Conmittee noted that an equal percentage reduction
in the salary budget across Faculties was not consistent with advice
provided by the Committee, although it noted that these were on top of
very differential retrenchments already determined for that year. 8992.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee  (continued)
Budget Development Procedures
In February 1987, the Committee started a consideration of new budget
development procedures. The aim is to obtain information on the budget
from the bottom up. Deans of Faculties and Heads of administrative
units have been asked to present operating budget proposals together
with a brief assessment of strategic plans and priorities for the unit.
Two meetings have been held to review the units reporting to the Vice
President Adminstration and Finance. Further meetings will be held to
review the units reporting to the other Vice Presidents.
Fund Raising Campaign
The Committee has reviewed the preliminary plans for the UBC Fund
Raising Campaign. Suggestions have been made with respect to packaging."
In response to a query it was stated that the Committee reacted with
distress when it learned that the University was unable to pay the Faculty
salary increases awarded.
Curriculum Committee (see Appendix 'B')
Dr. Thompson presented the report on curriculum proposals submitted by
the Faculties of Agricultural Sciences, Applied Science, Arts, Education,
Forestry, Graduate Studies, Medicine, and Science.
The Committee recommended approval, subject to the following:
Agricultural Sciences - Note 8, Computer Science 101 should read
Computer Science 111
Under Courses offered by other Department and Faculties insert Chemistry
before Commerce.
Fish Aquaculture Option - in order to reduce possible confusion with
other programs being developed in the area of aquaculture, delete the
word "Aquaculture".  This will now read "Fish Option".
Applied Science - ELEC 456 - add to the description:
"Prerequisite: MATH/STAT 205 or STAT 251. Credit will be given for
only one of CPSC 417 and ELEC 456.  (3-0-l;0-0-0)" 8993.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee (continued)
PHYS 250 - the following change in description was omitted from the
submission:
PHYS 250 (2) Introduction to Modern Physics - Wave particle duality of
matter, special relativity processes in atomic, nuclear and solid state
and introduction to quantum mechanical measurement devices and
techniques.  Prerequisite:  Physics 151   (0-0-0; 3-3-1)
Program change 4th Year - (listed in Appendix 'B')
Education - change prerequisite for ARTE 303 and 305 from ARTE 100 and
201 to Fine Arts 181 and 3 units of Art History.
Dr. Thompson  )  That the proposals of the Faculties of
Dr. Hoisti    )  Agricultural Sciences, Applied Science,
Arts, Education, Forestry, Graduate Studies,
Medicine, and Science be approved, subject
to the provisos noted.
Attention was drawn to the reference to Geography 214 in the description
of Forestry 205. It was pointed out that in the submission from the
Faculty of Science the number had been changed to 204.
The motion put and carried.
Dr. Thompson paid tribute to those who had worked with him on the Senate
Curriculum Committee over the past three years.
On behalf of Senate the Chairman expressed thanks and appreciation for
the work done by Dr. Thompson as chairman of the Senate Curriculum
Committee.

The following memorial statements had been prepared in accordance
with the custom of Senate in recognition by the University and Senate of
the late Sperrin Noah Fulton chant and the late Kenneth Gordon Young.
IN MEMORIAM
SPERRIN NOAH FULTON CHANT (1896 - 1987)
With the passing of Sperrin Chant, this university has lost one of the
last of its great builders of the post war years. Not only was Dean
Chant a powerful force in the creation of solutions to the university's
critical problem of growth and change, he also served as a tireless
spokesman for higher education in the wider community and was regarded
as an educational leader of unrivaled stature.
Sperrin Chant was born in St. Thomas, Ontario in 1896. After serving in
the Canadian Expeditionery Force from 1916-1918, he enrolled at the
University of Toronto where he completed his B.A. and M.A. with an
outstanding academic record.
Dean Chant joined the teaching faculty of his alma mater as a Professor
of Psychology between 1922 and 1945. Again his career was interrupted
by service in World War II with the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1941
to 1944.
In 1945 he was appointed Head of Psychology and Philosophy and three
years later as Dean of Arts and Science at this university.
His involvement in the Senate covered sixteen years.
It is quite impossible to adequately recognize the enormous contribution
which he made to the academic development of this university. He played
a major role in the preparation of the Macdonald Report, a creative
endeavour which changed forever the face of higher education in this
province. In 1960, Dean Chant completed the onerous task of chairing
the Royal Commission on Education. Although not without controversy,
the Report was exhaustive, critical and constructive. It became a
blueprint for public education and defined an organizational structure
which has endured to this day.
His retirement as Dean in 1964 simply brought new challenges and further
responsibilities. Dean Chant played a leading role in the development
of post-secondary education in British Columbia by chairing the Academic 8997.

Board. It was largely a consequence of his diplomatic and planning
skills that articulation within the system developed rationally and
efficiently.
Sperrin Chant was noted for his wisdom and sound judgment. His counsel
was sought, not only by some of the most influential figures in Canada,
but by a host of individuals with problems of lesser magnitude. To all
who sought his advice he gave the same courteous attention - inevitably
tempered with respect and consideration.
Sperrin Chant served his country for over seventy years - as a
distinguished scholar, a soldier, and a dedicated public servant,
whenever and wherever his help was needed. Through his long and
productive life he never failed to provide a unique quality of service
which characterized his entire career.
To his surviving family the Senate of this university extends its
deepest sympathy.
Dr. Dennison  ) That the memorial statement for
Dean Will     ) Sperrin Noah Fulton Chant be
spread on the minutes of Senate
and that a copy be sent to the
relatives of the deceased.

IN MEMORIAM
KENNETH GORDON YOUNG (1938-1987)
No organization as complex as The University of British Columbia could
operate efficiently without the assistance of a loyal and dedicated
support staff. In this regard, Ken Young provided the leadership so
vital to the success of the academic enterprise. Directly or
indirectly, he touched the lives of every student of this University,
from the time of application to the day of graduation. He offered his
services cheerfully, conscientiously, and often well beyond the normal
call of duty.
Kenneth Young was born in Edmonton in 1938. He earned degrees in Arts
and Commerce from the University of Alberta and, after serving as
assistant registrar at the University of Calgary, accepted a similar
position in this institution in 1965. In 1980 he succeeded Jack Parnall
as Registrar. 8998.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Tributes Committee
Memorial Minutes (continued)
During his time in office, Ken Young became an essential source of
information in all of those policies and procedures which sustain
academe.
It may be said of his diplomatic skills that no matter how complex the
issue nor how tangled the procedures, Ken Young always found a way.
No member of the academic community knew more faculty, more support
staff, or more students than he. In each case his interest was sincere
and unreserved. He served on innumerable committees, often providing
the continuity necessary to complete the task before them. He displayed
a similar level of dedication in the wide community as a member of the
Board of St. Paul's Hospital Foundation from 1985 to 1987.
Ken Young was a loyal servant of this University. He followed in the
tradition of outstanding registrars whose contributions are so often
assumed and so rarely recognized.
It is appropriate that the Senate, a body to which he devoted so much of
his patient energy, should record its appreciation of Kenneth Young in
the minutes of this meeting.
To his surviving family the Senate of The University of British Columbia
extends its deepest sympathy.
Dr. Dennison  )  That the memorial statement for
Dean Webber   )  Kenneth Gordon Young be spread on
the minutes of Senate and that a
copy be sent to the relatives of
the deceased.

Ad hoc Committee on Emeritus Status for non-Faculty
The original report of the Committee had been tabled at the April 26,
1986 meeting of Senate; the intention being that the report would be
lifted from the table after obtaining appropriate advice on the use of the
words "...who have been appointed to the position by the Board of
Governors..." in recommendation 1. of that report. 8999.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Emeritus Status for non-Faculty (continued)
Mr. McConville, Chairman of the Committee, presented the following
amended report:
"Pursuant to a resolution of Senate at its meeting on March 20, 1985 an
ad hoc committee was appointed with terms of reference "to review the
appropriateness of granting emeritus status to senior professional members
of the University community who are not faculty. The Committee should, if
necessary include amended terms of reference for the Senate Tributes
Committee".
In order to ascertain the practice elsewhere in Canada the Registrar, on
behalf of the Committee, enquired of 12 universities across Canada as to
the policies in effect relating to emeritus status for non-faculty. Of
the twelve, eight universities have no provision for non-faculty emeritus
appointments while three provide for emeritus status for non-faculty such
as chief librarian, administrative officers such as vice-presidents,
registrars, university secretaries. One university makes provision for
emeritus status for "Academic (Non-Teaching) Faculty" which includes such
positions as Director University Counselling Services, Director Academic
Computing Services, Nursing Director (University Health Service).
In approaching the question of how far emeritus status should be granted
at U.B.C. to retired non-Faculty members of the University community, the
Committee started with the realization that U.B.C. grants emeritus status
virtually automatically to all retiring members of the University who fall
into defined categories. These categories presently include all full time
teaching faculty who retire at the rank of Senior Instructor or higher at
the age of 65, or on early retirement after at least 10 years of service.
Clinical appointees who have served at a significant level for at least 15
years are also eligible, upon recommendation of the Dean of Medicine.
It was beyond the Committee's terms of reference to reconsider this basic
policy. Therefore the question, as the Committee saw it, is whether the
rationale behind the basic policy that we now follow should apply with
equal force to non-Faculty, or certain groups of non-Faculty.
That rationale, in the Committee's view, is that emeritus status at U.B.C.
is not seen primarily as a mark of exceptional academic distinction.
Rather, it seems to be regarded as a tribute to the service that a
retiring employee has given as part of the academic enterprise of the
University. It is taken for granted that in their teaching or scholarship
or both, the teaching faculty have made a major contribution to the
academic enterprise. The question is whether certain other groups make a
contribution to teaching or scholarship that is similarly integral to the
academic enterprise. 9000.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Emeritus Status for non-Faculty (continued)
The Committee considered that the professional librarian's role is well
established and essential to the academic activity of the University.
Consequently, professional librarians should be included in the positions
eligible for emeritus status on a similar basis as are faculty.
The Committee also concluded that other persons functioning in a similar
role in a modern multi-discipline university should be eligible for
emeritus status. It also concluded that an appropriate test of
non-faculty who should be eligible for emeritus status would be whether or
not the person had been appointed to his or her position by the Board of
Governors. The Committee was advised that non-faculty so appointed are
now librarians, the directors and programme directors of the Centre for
Continuing Education as well as University officers.
Accordingly the Committee makes the following recommendations:
1. That on retirement full-time librarians, directors and programme
directors of the Centre for Continuing Education and University
officers who have served for 10 consecutive years prior to retirement
be eligible for emeritus status.
2. That Senate grant emeritus status to such persons who are eligible
under the preceding paragraph and are nominated by the President of
the University, the University Librarian, or the Director, Centre for
Continuing Education, as appropriate.
3. That the terms of reference of the Tributes Committee be amended to
include the above recommendations.
The Committee did not consider it necessary to review the well established
practice of this University of granting emeritus status to retired
Chancellors, Presidents, Deans and Registrars."
Mr. McConville ) That the report of the Committee be
Mr. Burnyeat  ) adopted and that the Committee be
discharged.
Dr. Dennison pointed out that the recommendations were not consistent
with the current policy for faculty.  He reminded Senate that there are
two categories of retirees:  those who reach 65, the normal retirement
age, for which emeritus status is granted automatically, and those who
take early retirement.  The policy established by Senate for those taking
early retirement states that early retirees will be eligible for emeritus
status with a minimum of 10 years service and a minimum of seventy
"points", in a combination of age and years of service. 9001.

5. That the terms of reference of the Tributes
Committee be amended to include the above
recommendations.
It was explained that Chancellors are automatically recommended for
emeritus status at the conclusion of their term.
The amendment to the amendment was put and car ried.
In response to a query concerning a number of librarians who had opted
to take a partial work load instead of early retirement, it was confirmed
that they would be considered eligible for emeritus status.
The motion, as amended, was put and carried.
Ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading Practices
Dr. Robitaille, Chairman of the Committee, presented the following
report which had been circulated:
"This committee was set up following the April 1985 meeting of Senate
with a mandate to "investigate alternatives to the present grading
system."  The committee has considered the two reports of the Senate ad 9003.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading Practices
hoc Committee on Courses that were presented to Senate in March and May
of 1984, a report to Senate in March 1985 concerning conversion to a
decimal grade-reporting system, and a petition on the matter of
deadlines for withdrawals that was presented to Senate in March 1985.
In addition, the Committee studied the grading systems presently in use
at a number of Canadian universities and a paper describing the results
of a major survey of grading systems utilized in post-secondary
institutions in Canada and the United States.
The Committee on Courses, in the first of its two reports, presented
three recommendations to Senate.
1. That the two week nominal drop-add time be lengthened to three weeks
in the case of two term courses.
2. That the "N" grade be abolished. Students not writing a final
examination or otherwise not completing the requirements of a course
in which they remain registered should, where circumstances do not
warrant deferred standing, be given a grade of "F".
3. That the Senate ad hoc Committee on Courses be charged with the
responsibility of soliciting the views of the Faculties on the
inclusion of numerical averages on students' transcripts and making
recommendations to Senate on this matter.
All three recommendations were adopted at the March 21, 1984 meeting of
Senate.
The second report of the Committee contained three further
recommendations.
4. That sessional averages (for each Winter Session) and cumulative
averages (for all courses taken at UBC) be included on students'
transcripts, and that these averages be based on unit-weighted marks
of all courses attempted, except courses for which no marks are
normally given..
5. That a single cumulative average should cover all of a student's
undergraduate studies at UBC, and that a new cumulative average be
begun when a student enters a graduate Faculty.
6. That numerical marks be given to all students registered in a course,
whether or not a final examination had been written, and that the
"DNW" mark should not be used.
"These were referred to the Faculties for discussion in the fall of
1984. Responses indicated a generally high level of agreement with the
three recommendations although some concern was expressed about the
value or validity of a cumulative average, and the possible impact of
such averages on a student's record. 9004.
May  20,   1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading Practices     (continued)
At the October 1984 meeting of Senate, the following recommendation from
the Faculty of Arts was considered and referred to the Faculties for
discussion.
7.   That UBC adopt a decimal system for   reporting  grades in all courses.
At its March 1986 meeting, Senate considered the initial version of the
present committee's report and referred it to the Faculties for
consideration. By now, virtually all of the Faculties have examined
that report and have made recommendations to the committee. On the
basis of those recommendations, the committee has revised several of the
points contained in its previous report. The committee now wishes to
present to Senate the following revised proposal for a grading scheme at
UBC.
The following is a description of the characteristics of the grading
system which the committee proposes be adopted at UBC.
1. Grades for all courses, regardless of unit value, will be based on a
percentage system. The minimum and maximum grades for all courses
will be 0 and  100,   respectively.
2. The system of unit values will be changed to correspond more closely
to a semester hours or credit system. Under the new system, a 1.5
unit course will become a 3-credit course; a 3.0 unit course, a
6-credit course;     and so on.
3. Transcripts will include a numerical and a letter grade for each
course, along with the number of credits awarded for the course. The
following  categories will be used:
Percent Letter-Grade
90-10 0 A+
85-89 A
8 0-84 A-
76-79 B+
72-75 B
68-71 B-
6 4-67 C+
60-63 C
55-59 C-
50-54 D
0-49 F
4. "Degree averages, calculated on the basis of percentage grades, will
be reported when a program leading to a degree, diploma, or
certificate has been successfully completed. The details of which
courses to include in calculating degree averages are to be decided
by each Faculty. 9005.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading Practices  (continued)
5. Degree standings, expressed as Class I, II, or Pass, will continue to
be used by those Faculties wishing to do so..
6. In addition to the  letter grades listed above,  the following
standings may also appear on the transcript:
EX - exempt. (Excluded from calculation of all averages) This
standing is to be used for required courses from which a student is
excused (e.g. because an equivalent course was taken elsewhere)
J - "adjudicated pass" in that credit is granted and the course need
not be repeated although it may not normally qualify as a
prerequisite for further work. (The grade assigned by the instructor
should be used in calculation of averages.)
P - requirements of subject completed satisfactorily, no quality
grade assigned, credit granted where applicable. (Excluded from
calculation of all averages.)
S - supplemental privilege granted.
Supplementals are not permitted in the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
SD - standing deferred.  (Excluded from calculation of all averages.)
T - thesis in progress, graduating essay not submitted, course
continuing.
For undergraduate courses: A standing of "T" may be used only in
connection with graduating essays and similar courses approved by the
Faculty, or directed studies projects at the 400-level approved by
the Dean of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled. A standing
of "T" must be replaced by a percentage grade and a letter grade
within one calendar year of the end of the term in which the student
was first registered in the course; otherwise it will be changed to
an "F".
For courses in the Faculty of Graduate Studies: A standing of "T"
should be restricted to reporting thesis in progress, graduating
essay in progress, and to courses in which a requirement is expected
to be submitted after the normal cut-off date for the submission of
grades but before the end of the academic year. in the case of
Spring and Summer courses the deadline would be the end of the Fall
term.
W - withdrawal.  (See paragraphs 8-10)
AUD - audit 9006.
May 20, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading Practices (continued)
AEG - aegrotat standing, indicating that the student is granted
credit although unable to complete because of illness. A letter
grade should also be recorded, and that grade will be converted to a
minimum percentage grade for that category for the calculation of
averages.
7. There is no provision for a grade of "Incomplete," and a grade, or a
standing where no grade is awarded, must be submitted for each
student registered in each course.
8. If a student withdraws from a course within the first two weeks of a
course in one term, or within the first three weeks of a course
offered over two terms, no record of the registration will appear on
the transcript.
Students may withdraw from courses in which they are registered at
any time up to the end of the sixth week of class for courses which
are offered in a single term, and of the twelfth week for courses
which span two terms. Withdrawals will be noted on the transcript by
a standing of "W". Such standings will not be included in computing
averages. Fee refunds for withdrawals will be calculated on a
pro-rata basis.
Auditors may withdraw without prejudice at any time; in the case of
withdrawal, the record of registration will be removed from the
transcript.
9. Students may withdraw from courses outside the limits described in
paragraph 10 only with the permission of the Dean of the Faculty in
which they are registered. in such cases, the instructor should be
informed. Such withdrawals will be recorded as "W" on the student's
transcript.
10. Faculties may, at their discretion, limit the number of "W" standings
permitted to a student. Any withdrawals in excess of that limit that
would normally produce a standing of "W" will result in assignment of
an "F" for the course or courses involved. Normally, a student may
not withdraw from a course more than once.
The Committee recommends:
i)  that the new grading system be approved
ii)  that the revised grading system be implemented at the same time as
the new Student Information System
iii) that the ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading Practices be
discharged. " 9007.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading Practices  (continued)
In speaking briefly to the report, Dr. Robitaille explained that the
first version of the report had been presented to Senate in March 1986 and
had then been referred to the various Faculties for consideration and
response; the responses to be considered by the Committee prior to
reporting back to Senate. The reactions from the various Faculties had
indicated overall support for the recommendations. In revising the report
the Committee decided to do away entirely with the grade-point scheme so
that the proposed grading scheme calls for a percent score and
corresponding letter grades. in recommendation 3. the number of letter
grade categories has been increased; several standings have been added to
point number 6, and a few of the ones that were there have been revised.
In conclusion, Dr. Robitaille informed Senate that if the report were
approved points 6 to 10 could be implemented as of September 1988 but that
the actual introduction of the percent and letter grade system would have
to await the introduction of the new student information system scheduled
for 1990-91.
Dr. Robitaille )  That the report be adopted, and that the
Dean Will     ) ad hoc Committee on Grades and Grading
Practices be discharged.
Dean Webber stated that he did not see any advantage to incorporating
letter grades since the letter grade proposal did not add any information
in terms of informing students about their performance or in informing
other interested parties about the performance of the student.  He also
stated that the proposal would pose problems in the Faculty of Medicine
since many courses offered require a 60% pass mark, therefore a C-, which
appears to be a passing grade, would not be a pass in those courses
requiring 60%. 9008.

Dr. Robitaille stated that it was important for other institutions to
understand the UBC grading system and to be able to interpret what UBC
grades mean;  particularly since in most Canadian universities "A" is a
letter for a grade of 80 where in many U.S. universities the grade would
have to be over 90 to qualify for an "A". Dr. Robitaille also pointed out
that when the report was referred to the Faculties this particular point
about percent and letter grades was favoured by a 9-1 margin.
The amendment was lost.

B.Sc. Program in Nutritional Sciences - Agricultural Sciences
Following the initiative of the School of Family and Nutritional Sciences,
and extensive consultation with the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences, a proposal has been made to offer a B.Sc. degree
program in Nutritional Sciences in the Faculty of Science.
Proposed Calendar Entry for the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences
(p. 43, col. 2, following Agricultural Mechanics entry)
"The program in Nutritional Sciences is specifically intended for those
students interested in basic nutritional sciences, who desire
preparation for graduate study and research in Nutrition, and for
students who plan to proceed to an area of Agricultural or Health
Sciences in which a background in nutrition would be of value. All
students take required courses in both animal (comparative) and human
nutrition, but each student may select additional courses to emphasize
one area or the other. Students registered in this program must
satisfy all requirements, including Admission requirements, of the
Faculty of Science, as described on pages 000-000 of the calendar."

Deletion of Program - Rangeland Resources Option
Discontinuance of the Rangeland Resources Option in the Department of
Agricultural Economics involves the following Calendar revisions:
p. 40, col. 1 and 2:  Delete heading "Rangeland Resources" and ensuing
program listings for second, third and fourth years.
p. 40, col. 1 change preamble (final three paragraphs) to
"Students have considerable flexibility in choosing courses to meet their
own interests. Two broad fields of study in the B.Sc. (Agr.) program are
available: applied economics and management. Areas of specialization
include the following: general agricultural economics, agribusiness, farm
management, international trade and rural development, agricultural
marketing and trade, and resource management.
The general agricultural economics option is academically oriented and is
of interest to those thinking of a career in research or government
positions. The agribusiness and farm management options are suggested for
those whose interests lie in the practical and business area of the food
system. The marketing, international trade and rural development options
are concerned with the national and international marketplaces and
problems faced by developing economies.
Requirements for the Bachelor's degree are noted below and for information
concerning the Masters and Doctorate degrees, the Faculty of Graduate
Studies section of the calendar should be consulted." 9016.

New Program - Major in Guitar
Calendar entry:
Major in Guitar
All students planning to major in guitar in the Bachelor of Music program
are required to audition during registration week. Transfer students from
other colleges and universities will audition at the same time. Students
currently registered in guitar performance will be examined each Spring
before the end of Term. The results of these auditions and examinations
will determine whether a student will be admitted to the performance
program, will be allowed to transfer credits in guitar performance from
other universities and colleges, or will be permitted to continue in the
program. All students in the performance major are on probation during
their first two years regardless of entrance level and, unless accepted
standards are met each year, will be required to withdraw from the program.
In general, the entrance level corresponds to the Toronto or Western Board
Grade X, and there must also be the probability of significant development
during th years of study at the University. The possession of a diploma
is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Students accepted as first-year guitar majors will be expected to attain
annual levels corresponding approximately to those given below. The works
cited are given as guides to the levels of technical and musical
achievement to be attained and do not indicate specific repertoire
requirements.
Entrance auditions and term examinations will include sight reading and
quick study in addition to the performance of prepared repertoire.
Third-year students will be required to study French and Italian lute
tablature systems (in their private lessons). Fourth-year students will
be expected to transcribe a work from the repertoire of another instrument
(e.g., piano, violin).
