The motion was put and carried.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Conmittee
The 1984 Provincial university survey of undergraduate students who
applied, were accepted for admission and did not register had been
circulated for information.
In response to a query Dean Finnegan, Chairman of the Admissions

Dr. Elder   ) That the recommendations of the Nominating
Dr. Stager  ) Committee be approved.
Carried 8371.
March 20, 1985
Motions by Dr. Spencer
Dr. Spencer indicated that he wished to remove the words "procedure and"
from the motion outlined on the agenda and that he would present a separate
motion concerning procedures.
Dr. Spencer ) That the full details of the criteria used
Mr. Burnyeat ) to arrive at any recommendations for the
curtailment or elimination of any academic
programs be considered and approved by Senate
before Senate considers any such recommendations.
In speaking to the motion Dr. Spencer reminded Senate that, in
accordance with the University Act, the academic governance of the
University is vested in the Senate and that the Act therefore assigns a most
important responsibility to the Senate. The purpose of the motion was to
ensure that Senate discharged that responsibility as effectively as possible
by having the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the
definition of the criteria already being used, and to offer suggestions for
change, if necessary, if the process of program reduction continues.
Dean Lusztig asked Dr. Spencer to indicate what sort of a statement
Senate should look at in addition to points 3.04 to 3.08 in the September
1983 "Academic Plan" document approved by Senate.
Dr. Spencer responded that it was difficult to interpret, in a way that
could be used to evaluate a specific program, such phrases contained in the
Academic Plan as "core", "core-related" and "non-core" and would therefore
like to have a more definitive explanation of what those terms mean.
Following considerable discussion the motion was put and carried. 8372.
March 20, 1985
Motions by Dr. Spencer (continued)
The Chairman vacated the Chair in order to present the following
statement concerning academic and budget planning for 1985/86 and beyond,
which had been circulated at the meeting:
"Preamble
Following two years' reductions in the University's operating budget
and associated retrenchment, President Pedersen in November, 1984
directed the Vice-President, Academic and the Vice-President,
Administration and Finance to prepare plans to meet a projected
deficit of $6.6 million should there be no increase in the operating
grant for 1985/86.
Process
T7 After extensive consultation (including meetings with the Senate
Budget Committee in November and December, 1984, and January and
February, 1985) the Academic Vice-President wrote to each of the
Deans directing consideration to various programs, activities
and units. All non-faculty academic units have been examined -
some by review committees - and the budgets of all
administrative units have been reviewed for potential reduction
as well.
2. Deans have responded or are responding on behalf of their
Faculties.
3. The submissions are being reviewed by the Acting Vice-President,
Academic and shared with the Senate Budget Committee.
4. Additional information and further recommendations may be
requested from the Deans.
5. The Acting Vice-President, Academic will develop specific
proposals and seek the advice of the Senate Budget Committee on
them.
6. Any proposals which entail the discontinuance of courses,
programs or academic units and/or the establishment of enrolment
limitations will be presented to Senate for approval and
thereafter to the Board of Governors.
7. Those proposals which do not entail decisions within the purview
of Senate will be directed to the appropriate University officer
for implementation after the relevant budget decisions have been
made including Board approval where appropriate." 8373.
March 20, 1985
Motions by Dr. Spencer (continued)
Dr. Smith explained that the statement had been prepared in an attempt
to convey to Senate the details of the academic and budget planning process
that is going on at the present time. He informed Senate that the deficit
had now reached the vicinity of $7.5 million due to a variety of factors.
Dr. Spencer ) That before considering any recommendations
Mr. Yaworsky ) for the curtailment or elimination of academic
programs, Senate should review the procedures
used to arrive at those recommendations, suggest
any additional procedures it considers desirable
and take the necessary steps to implement additional
procedures when that is appropriate.
In the discussion that followed opinions were expressed that if Senate
were to approve the motion it would be placing itself in the position of the
management of the University. It was understood that the criteria to be
used in the elimination of programs would be presented to Senate by the
Senate Budget Committee for approval by Senate. However, the procedures to
implement those criteria would be determined and carried out by the
University administration. Senate would then approve any deletions of
programs and courses, as specified in the University Act.
After extensive discussion the motion was put and lost.
Motion by Mr. Rutherford
A motion by Mr. Rutherford, requesting the Senate Budget Conmittee to
review and clarify the principles behind the September 1983 Academic
Planning and Priorities Report, and to explain the criteria presently being
used to evaluate academic activities at the University, was withdrawn. 8374.
March 20, 1985
Rules Governing Formal Examinations
The following proposal for changes to the Calendar statement concerning
rules governing formal examinations had been circulated:
"1984-85 Calendar p.16 - additions underlined.
4. Candidates guilty of any of the following, or similar, dishonest
practices shall be immediately dismissed from the examination
and shall be liable to disciplinary action.
a) Making use of any books, papers, memoranda or calculators, other
than as authorized by the examiners.
d) Making use of audio cassette players.  Such devices are not
permitted in examination rooms."
It was explained in the material circulated that the availability of
compact electronic equipment has given rise to the possibility of such
devices being brought into examination rooms and that although there is a
need to accommodate the legitimate need for small calculators, other devices
should be prohibited.
Dean Webber  ) That the proposed changes to the rules
Dean Finnegan ) governing formal examinations be approved.
After several suggestions for changes to the proposal had been made, it
was agreed that this item be withdrawn and that a revised proposal be
brought forward to the April meeting.
Conversion to a Decimal Grading System
The following report had been circulated:
"At its meeting of October 10, 1984, Senate resolved that the
following motion be referred to the Faculties for review: 8375.
March 20, 1985
Conversion to a Decimal Grading System (continued)
"That U.B.C adopt a decimal system for reporting grades
in all courses."
Following is a summary of the responses of the Faculties:
General
The Faculties of Applied Science, Dentistry, Law, Graduate Studies,
Pharmaceutical Sciences, Science, and the Schools of Audiology and
Speech Sciences, Nursing, and Physical Education and Recreation
support the adoption of a decimal system for reporting grades.
Comments of other Faculties
The following Faculties also support the adoption of a decimal
system for reporting grades but with additional comments as
indicated:
- Agricultural Sciences suggest that it may be rime to review the
"1, 2, P" system of classifying course and year standing in light
of the widespread use of alternative better understood systems.
- Commerce and Business Administration support the proposal subject
to appropriate weighting being used to reflect the unit value of
each course.
- Education suggests that consideration be given to changing to an
even more common system such as the 4-point pattern widely in use
in other post-secondary institutions but do not, at this stage,
recommend a 4-point scale as necessarily the best system for UBC.
- Forestry agrees in principle but feels it should read "percentage"
system rather than decimal to avoid confusion with decimalized
grade-point averages.
- Medicine suggests that the proposal should read "percentage"
system rather than decimal."
Dean Will stated that the intent of the proposal of the Faculty of Arts
was to encourage Faculties to think of some alternative to the 150 grading
system. Responses from the Faculties indicated that a change was desirable
but not necessarily to a decimal grading system. Since the Faculty of Arts
had not researched what the proper alternative to the 150 rule is he
suggested that Senate establish an ad hoc conmittee to look into the various
alternatives to the present grading system. 8376.
March 20, 1985
Conversion to a Decimal Grading System (continued)
Dean Will   ) That the motion and responses be referred to
Dean Finnegan ) an appropriate ad hoc conmittee of Senate to
investigate alternatives to the present grading
system.
Carried

It was noted that a call for nominations for replacements would be sent
out and, if necessary, an election held at the April 24, 1985 meeting of
Senate.
Student senators
On behalf of Senate the Chairman expressed thanks and appreciation for
the contribution made by those students who were attending their last
Senate meeting. Students were requested to continue to serve on
committees until replacements are named at the April meeting of Senate.
Provincial program curtailment
In response to a query the Chairman stated that the criterion of
uniqueness of programs offered by all the Provincial universities would be
taken into consideration in making recommendations to Senate for program
curtailment. 8377.
