Reports of Committees of Senate
New Programmes Committee
Proposal of the Faculty of Arts to offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts
(B.F.A.) Degree
Professor Bourne presented the report of the Senate New Programmes
Committee on the proposal. He stated that the committee was concerned
about the relationship between the studio work that would be required in
the B.F.A. degree programme and the studio work done in the Faculty of
Education. It was felt that duplication of courses and even of faculty
was possible and it would therefore be desirable that there should be the
fullest co-operation between those in charge of these two studio programmes.
Results of tha discussions between the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of
Education were set out in Appendix 'A' of the committee's report.
Arrangements governing the transfer of students between the proposed B.F.A.
programme and the Education Fine Art and Art Education programme were
outlined in Appendix 'B' of the report.

requested to submit to Senate within three to
hive years ahter the start oh this new programme,
a report on its progress so that Senate may
review it.

requirement that the Heads of the two Departments concerned meet each year
to discuss mutual problems.  It was pointed out that this recommendation
was made by the Departments concerned.
In amendment:
Dean Finn )       That Appendix 'A' oh the New Programmes Committee
Mr. Brock )       RepoA* be deleted.
The amendment was lost.

it will be the responsibility of the Chairman of the Liaison
Committee to ensure that Senate is informed.
Information waa requested on the siting of the Law Building. Dr.
Oberlander explained that the probable site would be the northeast half
of the grounds of the President's house but that this might not be
possible.  It was explained that the privacy of the President's house
would not be adversely affected.

consulted about the siting of buildings since they were the largest
users. The Chairman pointed out that it was not within the terms of
reference of Senate to site buildings although it could make
recommendations to the Liaison Committee. 5209

Dean Gardner )    requirements hoi the hirst year be raised hoi
students ^iom British Columbia to the equivalent
oh 65 percent, ehh^ctive 1970-71", be tabled.
Dean Finn explained that to raise the entrance requirements to 65%
could be a means of controlling enrolment or raising standards for
enrolment. Senate had already dealt with the enrolment problem by setting
limits at the previous meeting. He felt that more attention should be
paid to guiding and counselling students in their earlier years of
university.
The motion to table was put and carried. 5211
Wednesday, February 25, 1970
Continuation of Discussion of Recommendations from the Long-Range
Objectives Committee Report
Recommendation 3
"That, commencing in the fall of 1971, enrolment be restricted
for a five year period in the first two years of the Bachelor of
Arts; Agricultural Sciences; Education; Physical Education and
Recreation; and Science programmes, and in the first year of the
Bachelor of Commerce programme. The restriction should take the
form of a quota for the first two years combined, except in the
case of Commerce where only firBt year enrolment is to be restricted.
This quota should be either enrolment in the years concerned as at
December 1, 1969, or the average of enrolment for 1966/67 to
1969/70".
Dean Finn   ) That, commencing in the h°&l oh 7977, enrolment
Dr. Norris ) be restricted hoi a ht-vz year period in the
hirst two years oh the Bachelor oh Arts;
Education; Physical Education S Recreation; and
Science programmes, and in the hirst year oh
the Commerce programme.   The restriction to
take the honm °i a quota hoi the h^Jst two
years combined, except in the case oh Commerce
where only hint year enrolment be restricted.
Dean White proposed an amendment deleting the reference to the
first year of the Commerce programme because there was no alternative
programme in Business Administration elsewhere. He felt that enrolment
by Faculties in the first two years was not meaningful and Senate should
be looking at enrolments in courses. 5212
Wednesday, February 25, 1970
Continuation of Discussion of Recommendations from the Long-Range
Objectives Committee Report.
Recommendation 3 (Continued)
Dr. Clark  )    That reherence to the Faculty oh Commerce
Mr. Williams )    and Business Administration be restored to
the motion.
Dr. Clark felt that Dean Finn's motion did not reflect the views of
the Committee. He pointed out that the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration had more than five times the number of undergraduate
students than Agricultural Sciences.
It was argued that Senate should consider the Facilities and resources of these various areas together.  If acceptable enrolment figures
totalled more than the agreed limit then Senate could consider means of
restriction in those areas, if less, then there would be no immediate
problem.
Dr. Webber ) That recommendation 3 oh the Long-Range
Dean White ) Objectives CommiXXee Report be tabled.
Carried
The Registrar said Senate should give serious consideration to the
question of whether or not U.B.C. wished to retain its uniqueness at the
first and second year level in the light of the fact that several other
institutions are now offering studies at this level. The Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration and the Faculty of Applied Science
should consider the possibility of regular admission of students after
two years at a regional college.
Recommendation 4
Mr. Williams )    That recommendation 4 "To implement the quota
Mr. Greenwood )    system we h&vour limiting enrolment on the basis
oh academic ability, and oppose quotas based
upon geographic origin or previous educational
institution", be tabled.
Carried 5213
Wednesday, February 25, 1970
Proposals from Senate members
(a) Criteria on enrolment (motion submitted by Dean White)
At its meeting of December 10, 1969 it was resolved "That Senate
should take such action as is expedient to determine the criteria for
enrolment size and selection of applicants and to review the methods
of regulating admissions". At the time it was agreed that this be
recorded and brought up once agreement had been reached on limitation
of enrolment. Dean White raised the matter again in view of Dr.
Rosenbluth's notice of motion which suggested how the motion already
passed might be dealt with.
(b) Criteria on the physical, financial and academic resources
per student and the maximum size of classes (motion
submitted by Dr. Rosenbluth)
Dr. Rosenbluth )   1.   That a committee be established with the
Dean White   )       hollowing {jxnctions:-
(a) To replace the Senate Committee on
Enrolment Policy in the implementation
oh the Senate resolution oh March 16,
1969 (Minutes, p.5028) which reads
"That the Committee on Enrolment Policy
be instructed to propose minimum
standards h°i the physical, ht^o-ncial
and academic resources per student
required to maintain the quality oh
education at The University oh British
Columbia.    That these proposals be
accompanied by a report explaining and
justihying the ^igttAe* proposed."
(b) In conjunction with the above, to
propose a schedule oh optimum and
maximum class sizes  ^oa the various
courses ohhued by the university.
2.   That the Senate hereby direct each h&culXy

Proposals from Senate members
(b) Motion submitted by Dr. Rosenbluth (Continued)
Dr. Rosenbluth )
Dean White     )
3.   That the committee consist oh one
representative appointed by each oh the
deans oh Arts, Education,  Science, Applied
Science, Commerce, Law and Graduate Studies,
one representative appointed jointly by
the deans oh Medicine, Pharmacy and
dentistry, one representative appointed
jointly by the deans oh Agriculture and
Forestry and one student senator appointed
by Senate.
Dr. Rosenbluth explained that the essence of his proposal was to
start by setting standards. The intention being that the standards
to be developed should not be based on a consideration of currently
available resources, but on information regarding the standards available at "good universities". The standards would deal with such matters
aa student-staff ratio, library space per student, laboratory space and
equipment per student, size of classes etc To a large extent these
proposed standards would have to be worked out within the Faculties,
the work being co-ordinated by the Committee.
Concern was expressed about the relation between Dr. Rosenbluth's
motion and what Dean White had proposed in the motion already passed.
It was felt that the University would be faced with the same problem
in the fall as it had in the past and that there was an urgent need for
planning now.
Dr. Willmott )
Mr. Trevino )
4. That the CommiXXee be instructed to make a
preliminary report at the September meeting
oh Senate with proposals hoi admissions
policy hoi the h°&l oh 1971 and make its

Mr. Trevino   ) its ^inot import to Senate at the February
1971 meeting.
After further discussion the amendment was carried.
The motion as amended was carried.
Other Business
Dr. Clark referred to the Senate Committee established to delineate
the scope and nature of a study of the sociological background of
students. He read to Senate a sample of questions likely to be asked.
The question of enrolment for 1971-72 winter session was raised.
It waa agreed that the Registrar in consultation with the President
should put some proposals before Senate at its next meeting on how this
should be handled.
It was agreed that letters should be written to The Hon. E. D. Fulton
and Dean B. Riedel who, due to illness, had recently been absent from
Senate.
Tributes Committee
The gallery was cleared to allow Senate to discuss a matter
concerning emeritus status. 5216
