Business arising from the Minutes
UBC/VGH Collaboration in Nursing Education
Dean Lusztig referred to the UBC/VGH Collaboration in Nursing Education
proposal which had been brought to Senate for information at the previous
meeting. It had been indicated at that time that the matter would come
back to Senate in due course. It had been reported in the press, however,
that the program would be going ahead in September. Dean Lusztig asked if
the proposal was in the hands of the Senate Admissions Committee and the
Senate Curriculum Committee. He further stated that according to early
drafts of the Mission Statement, the University would be emphasizing
graduate programs with a research component. in this instance the
University was committing to expand at the undergraduate level, which he
took to imply that other undergraduate programs might be "squeezed". For
that reason he felt it would be useful if the entire matter could come
back to Senate for discussion. He also asked for assurance that the
September 1989 date for implementation of the program had not yet been
agreed to.
In response Dean Meisen stated that no agreement had been reached
between UBC School of Nursing and VGH. He stated that the University had
agreed to consider the proposal and that any academic implications would
be brought to Senate for discussion.
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 Maurice Young Chair in Applied Ethics,
recommended by the Faculty of Arts  (pp.9365-6)
(ii) Establishment of The Edgar J. Kaiser Chair in Organizational
Behaviour, recommended by the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration  (p.9366) 9378.
December 14, 1988
Chairman's remarks and related questions
President Strangway reported that a dinner to launch the fund-raising
campaign would be held in Vancouver on March 20, 1989 and similarly in
Toronto on March 28.
President Strangway informed Senate that a task force had been
established to coordinate activities in celebration of UBC's 75th
anniversary in 1990.
Dr. Sobrino expressed regret that the Board of Governors had found it
necessary to increase tuition fees, particularly on the occasion of the 40th
Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United
Nations which gives the right of access to all levels of education, based
only on merit. He felt that as Canada had signed that treaty at its
inception, it was regrettable that tuition fees continued to increase,
thereby depriving some students of the right to higher education for reasons
other than merit.
Dr. Cook referred to a document recently circulated to members of
Senate, namely "A World of Opportunity". Dr. Cook stated that she was
disappointed to see little specific reference to the raising of money for
scholarships for undergraduate students. Dr. cook asked the President to
reconsider the statement and to add some specifics about the urgent need for
undergraduate scholarships.

Dr. Elder     )  That the recommendation of the Senate
Dean Lusztig  ) Admissions Committee be approved.
Dr. Elder explained that there had been a problem with Japanese 11
because the background of students entering Japanese 11 had been unclear.
However, it was now clear that two courses in Japanese are offered in
Grade 11, Beginning Japanese and Japanese 11.  The committee therefore
recommended that credit be offered for Japanese 11 on the assumption that
students had had some training in Japanese before entering Japanese 11.
In addition, the problem with Japanese 11 had created some difficulty with
Japanese 12 and it was not clear to the Department of Asian Studies
whether Japanese 12 ought to be considered as meeting the language
requirement of the Faculty of Arts.  However, it was assumed that the
Faculty of Arts would address this issue in due course.
in response to a query, Dr. Elder agreed to obtain information as to how
many schools offered the courses referred to in the proposal.
The motion was put and carried.

Faculty of Graduate Studies
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Graduate Studies, subject to the following:
Electrical Engineering 578 - add to the course description the words:
"Includes three hour weekly laboratory."
Geography 504 - add to course description: "Topics chosen to fit the
needs of the students in any given year".
Commerce 661 - delete the proposed new description as it is a
repetition of the title.
Health Care and Epidemiology 531 - change "infection" to "infections".

Geography 522 (1.5) Watershed Geomorphology changed to: Geography 503
(1.5) Topics in Geomorphology and Hydrology. Since Geography 503 is
listed as a new course, Geography 522 should be deleted.
Dr. Thompson noted that in the report, the committee had recommended
that the word "Advanced" be deleted from the title of Geography 516.
However, the Department of Geography had requested that this not be
deleted. The committee had therefore withdrawn the recommendation. 9393.

Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Graduate Studies  (continued)
Dr. Thompson informed Senate that the proposed change in number and
title of Geography 526 had been withdrawn pending consultation with the
Department of Oceanography.
Faculty of Law
The committee recommended approval of proposals from the Faculty of
Law, subject to the following:
Law 406 - change description to read: "A seminar on appellate
practice in British Columbia. Restricted to students in the
Faculty's competitive mooting programs."
Faculty of Medicine
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Medicine, with the exception of the Biochemistry program
changes which will come forward in the proposals from the Faculty of
Science.
Dr. Thompson drew attention to the rationale for FMPR 401 in which it
states "From current experience we request approval to change from
incomplete/complete to honours/pass/fail gradings." He stated that as
the committee and Senate did not approve rationales, the committee did
not feel that it was in a position to rule on this item. Further, the
committee had checked with the Registrar and there was no such grading
system. Dr. Thompson suggested that if the Faculty wished to change
their system they should discuss the matter with the Registrar. 9394.

Physical Education and Recreation, be approved. 9395.
December 14, 1988
Reports of committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
Mr. Goehring. drew attention to the number of changes in graduate
Geography courses. He was particularly concerned that Geography 600
Doctoral Research Seminar was being deleted and that no other research
course was being offered.
Dr. Robitaille expressed concern that MATH 135 was not to be offered for
credit in the Faculties of Arts and Science, thereby making it difficult
for prospective elementary teachers to take the required 1.5 units of
Mathematics before entering the Faculty of Education. He stated that the
new Teacher Education Program was so heavily loaded that it would be
difficult for students to satisfy the Mathematics requirement after they
have entered the program.
Dean Will stated that he had contacted the Head of the Department of
Mathematics in an effort to resolve this problem.
After further discussion the motion was put and carried.
Continuing Education
Annual Report on Part-time Studies,  Distance  Education,  Continuing
Education and Cultural Activities 1987-88
Dean Kennedy, Chairman of the Committee, spoke briefly to the report,
which had been circulated for information.  Dean Kennedy noted that a
comprehensive review of the University's policy on continuing education
was to be undertaken by a Presidential Task Force.  He stated that the
Senate Committee on Continuing Education would be involved in this
review and, if necessary, would report back to Senate. 9396.
December 14, 1988
Reports of Committees of Senate
Continuing Education
Annual Report on Part-time Studies, Distance Education, Continuing
Education and Cultural Activities 1987-88  (continued)
Dr. Katz drew attention to a reference to the UBC Speakers Bureau on
page 80 of the report and requested information as to its status, if it
was active at the moment and, if so, how many people had been engaged to
speak in the last few months.  He also enquired as to why the community
Relations Office and not the Centre for Continuing Education handles the
Speakers Bureau.
President Strangway confirmed that the Speakers Bureau was active but
he had no information as to the number of people engaged to speak. He
explained that the reason Community Relations handled the Speakers
Bureau is that it has an outreach function through the community.
Dr. Katz stated that he was dismayed at the erosion of the activities
of the Centre for Continuing Education, and he felt that putting the
Speakers Bureau under the Centre's jurisdiction would enhance its
offerings.
Dean Kennedy stated that Community Relations had prepared a
compendium of interests of faculty at UBC, which had been given wide
distribution, in an effort to indicate what UBC had to offer.
Nominating Committee
Dr. Tennant presented the following report, which had been circulated.

Committee on Student Awards
In presenting the list of awards, Dr. Cook drew attention to the
Canadian Airlines international Fellowship in Business Administration,
consisting of a fellowship of $2,600 towards tuition and books and a
travel voucher in the amount of $2,400 for a graduate student in the
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration.
Dr. Cook also drew attention to the University of B.C. Agricultural
Sciences Alumni Entrance Scholarship in the amount of $2,000, renewable in
the amount of $1,200 in each of a further three years.
Dr. Cook      ) That the new awards (listed in Appendix 'A')
Ms. Woo       ) be accepted subject to the approval of the
Board of Governors and that letters of
thanks be sent to the donors.
In response to a query concerning the Canadian Airlines international
Fellowship in Business Administration, Dr. cook stated that it was the
desire of the donors that preference be given to students from Asia,
however, the donors were prepared to see a student selected from any of
their international destinations but they were particularly in favour of
developing the ties for the Pacific Rim and the focus that UBC is taking
on pacific studies. 9399.
December 14, 1988
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
Dean Lusztig explained to Senate that students from Asia often had great
difficulty because of currency restrictions. When this matter was
discussed with Canadian Airlines, they indicated that they had a
preference for the areas they served. However, in response to a request
by the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration, they had agreed to
focus the preference on students from Asia.
In response to a further query, Dr. Cook confirmed that the award was
for international students only.
Attention was drawn to the international Longshoremen's and
Warehousemen's Union Scholarship and to the sentence "The donors reserve
the right to re-award the scholarship if the winner receives other
scholarships of substantial value.". Dr. Cook explained that this caveat
was included in situtations where UBC banks the money but the award may
not go to a UBC student.
In response to a query as to how the winner is selected, Dr. Cook
sttated that she did not have that information.
After further discussion it was agreed that this award be referred back
to the committee for clarification.
The motion to approve the list of awards, with the exception of the
International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union Scholarship, was put
and carried.

Academic Year 1989-90  (continued)
Dean Lusztig  )  That the proposed dates for the
Dr. Shaw      )  Academic Year 1989-90 be included
in the Calendar.
in amendment:
Mr. Pettingale ) That the last day for payment of
Mr. Speers    )  first instalment of fees be changed
from August 31st to September 5th.
Some members of Senate expressed concern that instructors would not get
their class lists soon enough if payment of fees was delayed.
Mr. Haji stated that both the A.M.S. and the student senators had done
informal studies as to how students felt about the telereg system, and the
only issue raised was the problem of the date on which students had to pay
their fees.
Mr. Speers asked why, if it was important to have the class lists early,
students did not have to pay their fees earlier than January 16 in the
second term.
Dr. Wood felt that by changing the last day for payment of fees to
August 31st, the University had taken into account the problems of students
getting payment from summer employment in time to pay their fees. He
thought that the concession of one day not only helped students but also the
University by not going into September, thereby allowing the University to
process the cheques and to produce more accurate class lists.
After further discussion, the amendment was lost.
In response to a suggestion by Mr. Pettingale, the Registrar confirmed
that an editorial change would be made to clarify that January 16 is the
date for payment for all students entering second term courses.
The motion was put and carried. 9401.

FACULTIES OF APPLIED SCIENCE AND SCIENCE
New Program:
Calendar Statement  (Applied Science)
"Chemical Engineering-Chemistry Honours
Chemical Engineering-Chemistry Honours is a program jointly administered
by the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. Enquiries
regarding the program and student advising should be made to faculty
advisors in either Department.
The completion of the B.A.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering-Chemistry
Honours will normally take five years of university study. Entry to the
program is normally from First Year Applied Science. To obtain
permission to enter the program students must consult faculty advisors
in the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry.
The five-year Chemical Engineering-chemistry Honours program has an
integrated sequence of Chemistry courses that are different from those
in the regular four-year Chemical Engineering program. Because of this
and other differences between the programs, transfer from one to the
other becomes progressively more difficult after first year. Students
who complete four years of the combined program (including 4th-year
Chemical Engineering) would have a number of deficiencies to make up if
they wished to graduate at that point with a B.A.Sc. in Chemical
Engineering.
Students who satisfactorily complete the program, and obtain a minimum
overall second class average in their Chemistry courses numbered 300 and
higher, will be given recognition as receiving the B.A.Sc. in Chemical
Engineering/Chemistry Honours.

"Graduation Project, Part 1 (Arch. 498)
Research, Preparation and Definition of the Graduation Project
In order to enrol in Arch 498, a student must have successfully
completed all the requirements for second year. Each student enrolled
in ARCH 498 will select a member of faculty from a published list to act
as a Mentor for the project. The Mentor must approve the topic and
agree on the approach. A LETTER OF INTENT, approved by the Mentor, must
be submitted by the end of the first week of term. A PROPOSAL for a
specific project, approved by the mentor, must be submitted by the end
of the seventh week of term. The ARCH 498 REPORT is due on the last day
of course work for the term.
The ARCH 498 REPORT must be completed in one term and a grade assigned
prior to the marks meeting of that term. Should the work be incomplete
a FAIL grade will automatically be assigned. The student may then
re-register for ARCH 498 in the following term.
If the ARCH 498 REPORT is not completed and graded with a satisfactory
standing at the end of the term in which it was started, the student may
not proceed with ARCH 499 in the following term. Failure to complete
ARCH 498 after two attempts will require that the student withdraw from
the program for 12 months.
Graduation Project, Part 2 (Arch. 499)
Design and Presentation of the Graduation Project
No student will be permitted to proceed with ARCH 499 until the student
has passed ARCH 498 and reduced any outstanding course requirements to a
maximum of nine units.
Each student enrolled in ARCH 499 shall work under the supervision of a
Committee, the Chairperson of which will normally be the Mentor from
ARCH 498, or else a member of the faculty chosen from the published
list. The student, with the approval of the Chairperson, will select
two additional members for the Committee who may be from the School
faculty or the community at large. Under the direction of the
Chairperson, the student will call a minimum of four meetings of the
Committee at appropriate stages of the project to review progress. At
the FIRST MEETING of the Committee, the terms of reference for the
project and the expectations of the committee will be defined. At the
TERM-END MEETING, to be held by the last day of course work for the
term, the committee will determine whether the project is substantially
complete, and is to be prepared for presentation. 9408.

Graduation Project, Part 2 (Arch. 499)
Design and Presentation of the Graduation Project  (continued)
At the TERM-END MEETING the following conditions apply: students whose
work is judged to be substantially complete and of acceptable quality
will be required to make a public presentation of their work at the
FINAL REVIEW on a date scheduled by the School. Work that is not of an
acceptable standard will be assigned a FAIL grade. Should the Committee
decide that the project is not substantially complete it may either
assign a fail grade or, alternatively, it may give the student
permission to work on the project until a date published by the School.
At this date, the student may make a presentation to the Committee and
an assigned group of faculty and request an extension. At this time the
Committee may, only with the agreement of the assigned faculty, allow
the student to re-register for the next consecutive term and continue
work on the project. The student must complete the project by the end
of that term or else a FAIL grade will be assigned.
All students eligible to do so must exhibit their projects at the
PREVIEW EXHIBITION scheduled just prior to FINAL REVIEW. Students whose
substantially complete projects are considered by their Committee to be
inadequately presented may not be allowed to proceed to FINAL REVIEW,
and will be required to upgrade the presentation for the next PREVIEW
EXHIBITION.
At the FINAL REVIEW, the grade for ARCH 499 will be established by the
Committee in consultation with the assigned group of faculty and guest
critic, immediately following the public presentation. in order to
obtain credit for the course, the student must attain a mark of not less
than 65%.
To complete the requirements for graduation, the work in the courses
ARCH 498 and 499, including reductions of all the presentation drawings,
must be summarized and put together in a single REPORT ON THE GRADUATION
PROJECT. One copy of the approved Report, initialled by the Chairperson
of his/her Committee, must be deposited in the School Office by the
specified date for file in the School of Architecture Reading Room.
Failure to submit an approved report by the specified date will prevent
the student from graduation at that convocation.
If a FAIL grade or no credit is assigned for ARCH 499, the student will
be required to withdraw from the School for a minimum period of twelve
months. The student may then re-register for ARCH 499 and begin again
with a new topic, Mentor, and Committee. It will be necessary for the
student to undertake preparation work acceptable to the new Committee
Chairperson without credit, prior to re-registering.
Failure to attain the necessary requirements after repeating ARCH 499
will require the student to withdraw from the School, and the student
will not be allowed to re-register in the program.
Should the program not be completed in six calendar years from the date
of first registering in the School, the student must appeal for
permission to re-enrol. Such an appeal will be granted only after it
has been reviewed by the Director of the School of Architecture." 9409.

or at least a clear First Year pass with not less than Second Class
standing in each of PHYS 120, MATH 100, MATH 101, and a First-Year
Chemistry course, is the desirable prerequisite for admission to the
Second-Year Honours Program in Physics. However, students who were not
permitted to take PHYS 120 may substitute the First-Year Physics course
for which they received academic credit, provided all other minimum
requirements as stated were also met# 9426.

Courses Primarily for First-Year Science Students (continued)
PHYS 110 is intended primarily for students who have completed only B.C.
Secondary School Physics 11 or its equivalent. Credit will not normally
be given to students with credit for Physics 12.
PHYS 115 is intended primarily for students who have completed B.C.
Secondary School Physics 12. Students with only Physics 11 but with a
good mathematics background may also take PHYS 115.
PHYS 120 is open to students who have obtained an A in one of Physics 12
or Algebra 12 and a B or better in the other course and who are
particularly interested in and challenged by physical science and/or its
application to other fields or disciplines.
Students who would prefer to register in a lst Year physics course with
a higher number than the appropriate one as designated above, must
obtain permission of a Physics Adviser.
Non-science students without Physics 11 but with adequate mathematics
may be allowed to take PHYS 110 at the discretion of the Department.
