Minutes of the Previous
Dean Gage )
Mr. Miller) That the minutes of the third
regular meeting of Senate for the
Session 1964-65, held on December
16, 1964, having been circulated,
be taken as read and adopted.
Recommendations from the
Senate Executive Committee
Report of the Committee
on Academic Goals
Action taken with respect
to Various Recommendations
of the Committee Report
For information of Senate, the President outlined
action he had taken in referring various recommendations of
the report of the Committee on Academic Goals to the bodies
or individuals concerned: the Board of Governors; the
Committee of Academic Deans; the Dean of Inter-Faculty and
Student Affairs; the Dean of Graduate Studies; the Registrar.
The report had recommended also the establishment
of a Senate Standing Committee on Academic Affairs. The Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3494
wide discussion of this recommendation had led the President
to conclude it would toe helpful to have some such committee,
but not necessarily identical with that proposed.  He had
therefore, on an exploratory basis, appointed a President's
Committee on Academic Affairs under the chairmanship of the
Vice President. The terms of reference of the Committee
were:  To advise the President, and through the President,
the Senate and the Board of Governors, on the status and
development of the University's academic programme.
Committee members were Dr. Ross Stewart, Dr. J. R. Mcintosh,
Mr. W. M. Armstrong, Dr. V. C. Brink, Mr. C. B. Bourne,
Dr. J. D. Chapman, Dr. D. C. Murdoch, Dr. D. H. Chitty and
Dr. A. D. Scott.  If the Committee proved useful, the
President proposed to continue it with rotating memtoership.
Recommendations of the report referred to the
Committee included those dealing with entrance requirements
to the University, re-admission after failure in First Year,
admission on an individual toasis of students with intellectual capacity and academic foundation but lacking formal
prerequisites, and replacement of the Department of University
Extension by a Faculty of Continuing Education.
Faculty Council - Terms
of Reference
The Senate Executive Committee recommended approval
by Senate of the proposal in the report of the Committee on
Academic Goals that the terms of reference of Faculty Council
be expanded to include responsibility for "the task of Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3495
continuously evaluating the quality of student life and
recommending means by which it may be improved".
Dean Gage   )
Dean Okulitch) That the terms of reference of
Faculty Council be expanded as
The University Year
At the request of the Chairman, Dr. Chapman summarized Chapter VI of the report "Guideposts to Innovation",
dealing with the University year.
The report recommended that the existing Fall and
Spring terms be adjusted in length to approximately thirteen
weeks each; that a new Summer term be introduced, of approximately thirteen weeks starting in May; and that courses
of study taken in this proposed Summer term be accepted as
a means of acceleration.  Dr. Chapman added that the proposed
Summer term might afford a convenient period for work involving field observation, or for intensive programmes in
foreign languages.
The Chairman inquired whether Senate felt it
desirable to undertake a detailed study of the proposals.
Dean Gage suggested that first a fact-finding committee be
established to secure opinions from the various Faculties.
Dr. Foulks pointed out that this should not interfere with
full discussion by Senate, at some time, of the general
philosophy of the proposal.  The President commented that,
unless Senate felt there might be merit in the proposed Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3496
revision of the University year, it would be a waste of time
for a fact-finding committee to make a detailed study.
Dr. Foulks believed that a Summer term would be
relatively expensive in terms of cost per student unless
registration approached that in the Winter Session.
Dr. Norris emphasized that the Committee on
Academic Goals had proposed the Summer term as an experiment.
He felt its possibilities should be carefully explored, but
that this should be done in a hopeful atmosphere.
Mr. Justice Nemetz stated that discussion was
taking place across the continent on the most efficient
form of academic year. He felt it would be useful to have
a widely representative committee, including members of the
Board of Governors, explore the various systems.
Dr. Chapman explained that the Committee on
Academic Goals envisaged a small registration in the Summer
term - probably not more than 1000 students.  It was not
considering a trimester system. He felt the questions about
cost and efficiency of operation were not of great consequence.
On a suggestion by Mr. Walden, it was agreed that
further discussion of this question should be deferred to
the next regular meeting of Senate in order to give members
an opportunity to re-read the report of the Committee on
Academic Goals. Dr. Friedman suggested that Senate members
read also a report in the Bulletin of the Canadian Association
of University Teachers on the economy of extending the
University term.  Dr. Norris offered to have copies of the
Bulletin sent to members of Senate by the Faculty Association. Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3497
Report of the Committee to
Propose Guide Lines for the
Use of Faculties and Senate
in Considering Recommendations
for the Establishment of New
The report of the Committee to propose guide lines
for the use of Faculties and Senate in considering recommendations for the establishment of new Departments, had
been circulated to all memtoers of Senate. Dean Gage stated
that Dean Naegele had toeen largely responsible for summarizing the Committee discussions and preparing the report.
Dean Gage pointed out that the Committee had
concluded it could not propose specific principles, but
could only suggest guide lines to assist Departments and
Faculties in formulating recommendations to Senate.
Dr. Belshaw referred to the statement under "scope
of offering" that "The mandate of a department should include the instruction of undergraduates as well as the
pursuit of research and the education of graduates." He
felt instances might arise in which departmental status
could properly be granted to a field at the graduate level
Dean Gage replied that the Executive Committee
had looked on the report as a set of guide lines rather than
definitive criteria.
Dean Cowan)
Dean Gage ) That the report of the Committee to
propose guide lines for the establishment of new Departments be received
for information, and that copies be
sent to Deans, Heads of Departments
and Directors of Institutes.

Prizes. Scholarships and
New Awards and Changes
The Senate Executive Committee recommended approval of the following new awards and changes in awards,
subject to the approval of the Board of Governors where
Quote  (Appendix I)  (see pages 3511 - 3517)
Dean Gage )
Mr. Miller)  That these new awards be accepted
and the changes in awards approved,
subject to approval of the Board
of Governors where necessary, and
that letters of thanks be sent to
the donors of new awards.
Awards List No. 9
List  No.  9  of scholarships,  toursaries,   etc.,
awarded for the 1964 Summer Session and the 1964-65 Winter
Session, was circulated at the meeting.
Dean Gage )
Mr. Miller) That the granting of the awards
specified to the students recommended on List No. 9, be approved.
Awards for Athletes
The Senate Executive Committee recommended approval
of a draft statement on "athletic awards" to be open in
competition to students who have satisfactory academic
standing and are recommended to the Joint Faculty Committee
on Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries toy the Faculty memtoers
of (a) the School of Physical Education and Recreation,
(b) the Men's Athletic Committee, or (c) the Women's Athletic Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3499
Committee, on the basis of merit in a branch or branches of
Dean Gage stated that he did not believe in
"athletic scholarships" which were intended primarily to
attract athletes to a university. The draft statement was
designed to uphold the academic qualifications for awards,
while recognizing the value of athletics. He drew attention
to the final sentence, that "A condition of acceptance of a
proposed award from a donor should be that a student to whom
an award is made, and who curtails his athletic activities
in order to maintain his academic standing, would not lose
his award for the balance of the academic year."
Dean Gage recommended that, whether or not this
draft was adopted by Senate, the policy on considering
athletic achievement in addition to academic standing as a
basis for award, should be clarified.
It was moved by Dean Gage, seconded by Dr. H. V.
Warren, that the recommendation of the Senate Executive
Committee with regard to awards for athletes, as outlined
in the draft circulated to Senate under date of February
9, 1965, be accepted by Senate.
Mr. White inquired what was meant by "satisfactory
academic standing".  Dean Gage replied that this was a
matter to be decided by Senate.  In the case of bursaries,
the minimum standing was normally Second Class.
In reply to a surmise that this statement might
have been drafted as a result of policy in other universities Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3500
with respect to "athletic scholarships", the President explained that the matter had toeen raised some months
previously at a meeting of Past Presidents of the Alumni
Association.  The President had agreed to have the question
reviewed toy the University, and to this end, he had discussed
it with the Committee of Academic Deans, which had left to
Dean Gage the task of drafting a policy statement.
Following lengthy discussion, the motion was
despite opposition of a numtoer of memtoers of Senate.
Proposed Playwriting
Course in Theatre
At its meeting in Septemtoer, 1964, Senate had
approved the offering of a Master's degree in Theatre and
had approved certain new courses in Theatre, with the proviso
that the course in Playwriting within the Theatre offerings
(Theatre 507) should toe discussed further toy the Dean of
Arts with the representatives of Theatre and Creative Writing.
Since a mutually satisfactory arrangement had
toeen made between Theatre and Creative Writing to offer this
course solely under the jurisdiction of the latter, the
Senate Executive Committee recommended that the proposed
Playwriting course in Theatre toe not offered.
Dean Gage )
Dean Cowan)  That this recommendation of the Senate
Executive Committee toe approved.
Carried. Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3501
Representative of Senate on
Board of Directors of the
Health Centre for Children
The Senate Executive Committee recommended the
re-appointment of Mrs. H. F. Angus as representative of
Senate on the Board of Directors of the Health Centre for
Children for the year commencing April, 1965.
Mr. Miller  )
Dean McCreary) That Mrs. Angus be re-appointed
representative of Senate on the
Board of Directors of the Health
Centre for Children for the year
Discussion of the Programme
of Education in the Health
Prior to calling for the requested discussion of
the programme of education in the health sciences, the
Chairman asked Dean McCreary and Dean Leung to summarize
briefly the developments in this area since they had
reported to Senate in September, 1964.
Dean McCreary stated that at present the teaching
activities of the Faculty of Medicine were supported by the
Provincial Department of Education through the University
budget.  If the recommendations of the Royal Commission on
Health Services were adopted, approximately half this
support would come from Federal funds.  In addition, the
Commission had recommended a significant increase in Federal
funds for medical research.
With respect to capital costs, the Commission had
recommended that the Federal government pay half the Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3502
construction costs of all buildings related to medical
education, including basic medical science buildings as
well as University hospitals.
In the case of the University Teaching Hospital,
Dean McCreary reported that its financing was now assured.
The Provincial Government would underwrite half the approved
cost of construction, including teaching and research areas
as well as those devoted to patient care. The Federal
Government was providing almost one-quarter of the cost
(four times its normal grant to hospitals). The remainder
had been raised from international foundations and private
sources, including a very substantial grant from
Mr. P. A. Woodward.
The Dean anticipated that contracts for construction
could be let at the first of July, 1966, and the Hospital
would open three years later.
Dean Leung stated that there was general agreement
among medical and dental educators that the scientific basis
for the practice of Dentistry should be identical to that
for Medicine: the basic sciences should be identical in
content and generally comparable in depth. At the University
of British Columbia, dental students would take much of their
academic work in the first two years with medical students.
The facilities for the basic medical sciences were being
enlarged to accommodate the combined class of 60 medical and
40 dental students. Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3503
The report of the Royal Commission on Health
Services recommended specifically that the Federal Government should contribute half the cost of construction for
the University of British Columbia Faculty of Dentistry.
The Chairman then invited Dr. Norris to present a
series of questions as a basis for general discussion.
By way of introduction, Dr. Norris stated that
his questions were critical, not of the health sciences
programme as such, nor of individuals, administrators,
departments or faculties, but of a method of approach.  He
felt there would always be difficulty in this respect so
long as the financial and academic affairs of the University
were sharply separated. The questions represented concern
on the part of a number of Faculty members who were members
of Senate, including Dr. A. D. Scott who had made the
request for discussion of this topic but was at present on
leave of absence.
I.  What academic demands are likely to be placed on the
following departments and disciplines by the proposed
development of the Health Sciences on the campus?
Non-clinical departments in the Faculty of Medicine;
clinical departments in the Faculty of Medicine; the
Nursing School; the pure science departments; the
social sciences; other professional schools.
The answers from Deans McCreary and Leung indicated
that changes in instructional techniques could be anticipated
in the clinical departments of the Faculty of Medicine, and
that more instruction in the social sciences would be
included in the training of medical and dental students in
their pre-professional and early professional years. Apart Wednesday, March 3, 1965 ^504
from this, changes would be in scale rather than in type.
Dr. Belshaw urged that a more definite planning
liaison be achieved between the health sciences and the
social sciences to ensure the addition to the University
Faculty of sociologists, psychologists, etc., with appreciation of their relationship to the health sciences.  Dean
McCreary stated that for almost a year, representatives of
clinical Psychology and Sociology had been meeting with
representatives of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing in order
to achieve partial integration before the Health Sciences
Centre came into operation.
11(a)  What is meant by the "team approach" to Health Sciences
education?  In particular, how and in what way is the
line to be drawn between education of a university
calibre and education of a non-university calibre,
particularly that for para-medical personnel?
(b)  Is the same level of instructional skill to be
required of all members of the team?
Dean McCreary stated that the "team approach" was
essentially an effort to bring together individuals with
fundamentally the same task, to share some part of their
undergraduate training. The British Columbia Institute of
Technology was assuming the responsibility for training
health service personnel of non-university calibre - e.g.,
radiographers, hospital laboratory technicians, dental
technicians. At some future date, students under the auspices
of the B. C Institute of Technology might receive part of
their training in the University Teaching Hospital on account
of its facilities. Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3505
The same level of instructional skill would be
sought in all members of the team, although of necessity the
level of instruction would vary with the individual programmes.
Ill(a) Were the funds for this development sought before
the academic aspects were discussed and approved in
the Faculty of Medicine or after such discussions and
(b) When is the academic programme for the development
of the Health Sciences to toe submitted to Senate for
its consideration and approval?
Dean McCreary replied that the academic implications were first discussed in 1947-48 before the Faculty
of Medicine was established.  In fact, the consultants on
the establishment of medical training had recommended that
the first step be the construction of a University hospital.
This was deferred because of shortage of funds, but it had
remained the policy of the Faculty that there would be a
University hospital as soon as possible.
The type of hospital had been discussed in great
detail by the Faculty of Medicine in 1961, and a decision
had been reached to develop a Health Sciences Centre rather
than a University hospital. Fluids had not been sought until
after this decision was made.
Dean McCreary did not anticipate the academic
programme for the Health Sciences Centre as a whole would
ever be submitted to Senate, since each programme had been
approved by Senate in advance of its introduction. Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3506
Dr. Friedman stated that there had never toeen any
disagreement in the Faculty of Medicine about the need for
a University hospital. A Health Sciences Centre, however,
carried broader commitments.  It had great advantages from
the standpoint of the Faculty of Medicine and of the professional elements in the community, but from the standpoint
of the University as a whole it was questionable.  Since it
had been approved, it should be developed as effectively as
possible; at the same time, a watching torief should toe held
to ensure that the University as a whole did not suffer.
Mr. Justice Nemetz stated that the Board of
Governors had, on a numtoer of occasions, closely questioned
President Macdonald and Dean McCreary about the effect the
Health Sciences Centre would have on the University. He
assured Senate that the operating cost of the hospital would
be met by the British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service.
Dean McCreary confirmed that, whether or not the
recommendations of the Royal Commission on Health Services
were implemented, the development of the University Teaching
Hospital would not in any way be a charge against the
University budget. The operating cost of the Hospital,
estimated at about $5,000,000. per year in the early stages,
would be met through the B. C. Hospital Insurance Service.
IV(a) To what extent is this project a service project for
the Province rather than an academic programme for
the University?
(b)  In so far as it is a service project for the Province,
does this constitute a precedent for the University to
engage in other major service activities? Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3507
Dean McCreary agreed that, in so far as the Health
Sciences Centre would serve as a referral and diagnostic
centre, and a source of information for the medical profession in the Province, it was performing a service
function.  He believed that in this respect Faculties of
Medicine and Dentistry were of necessity different from
most other professional Faculties.
Dr. Belshaw pointed out that Departments outside
the Faculty of Medicine (particularly the pure sciences and
social sciences) were being asked to provide instruction
for students in, or preparing to enter, certain professional
schools, without having adequate funds to engage the staff
members who would provide effective instruction with the
integrated approach to the health sciences.
Dean Cowan stated that financial support for
graduate students was essential in order to increase the
amount of graduate work in Canada.  Traditionally, medical
research receives support at a higher level than other
fields of science.  It was important that as much as possible of the available research funds should be devoted to
academic purposes (assistance to graduate students, provision of equipment and materials for their projects)
rather than to private research by members of Faculty. The
Health Sciences Centre offered a unique opportunity to make
the most effective use of research funds in advancing
graduate education. Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3508
Dr. Turnbull believed that, when the main focus
of teaching moved from the Vancouver General Hospital to the
University Teaching Hospital, the former would still continue
as an important teaching hospital, particularly in the postgraduate field of Medicine.
Continuing his differentiation between a Health
Sciences Centre and a University Teaching Hospital, Dr.
Friedman stated that a hospital treated patients, while the
proposed Health Sciences Centre would train all individuals
ancillary to the physicians. The productivity of the basic
medical sciences might be reduced because of the heavy load
of para-medical students.
Moreover, such a complex programme would involve
an enormous administrative and functional load, which
threatened the harmony and academic role of the basic
science departments. There was no clear-cut distinction
between the training of a post-doctoral student for a
professional specialty, training for professional practice,
and training in research for the advancement of knowledge
in a specific field. There would be continuing pressure to
move clinical training into the academic framework.
Referring to Dean Cowan's comments, Dr. Foulks
assured him that the members of the basic science departments
were enthusiastic about enlarging their responsibilities
for the training of graduate students.  The problem was one
of recruitment, and attracting suitable students. Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3509
In conclusion, Dr. Norris expressed appreciation
for the participation in the discussion, and urged the
members of Senate, and those members of the Senate who were
members of the Board of Governors, to be aware of the
problems implicit in a Health Sciences Centre.
Admission Requirements for
Graduates of New Curriculum
in Senior Secondary Schools
A proposed Calendar statement on admission to the
University of graduates of the senior secondary schools of
British Columbia, effective September, 1967, drafted by a
sub-committee on behalf of the Senate Executive Committee,
was circulated at the meeting.  Dean Gage commented that
this was an attempt to give information to the secondary
schools as a guide to students preparing for the University.
Dean Gage )
Dean Cowan) That this statement be accepted as
present University policy, for the
guidance of students in the British
Columbia senior secondary schools.
The British Columbia Department of Education had
approved the proposed statement.  Its representatives drew
particular attention to the opinion expressed by the Faculty
of Science "that the quality of a student is more important
than the holding of certain specified prerequisite courses"
and the assurance that "consideration will be given to
admitting good students who do not hold all the stated
The statement, if approved by Senate, would be
given to the Department of Education to issue to the schools Wednesday, March 3, 1965 3510
of the Province.  It was probable that a more comprehensive
statement would be prepared for the University Calendar for
It was agreed that the statement should be expanded
to include a listing of the Schools and Faculties requiring
Chemistry as a prerequisite.  With this amendment, the
motion was Carried.
Honorary Degrees
For information of Senate, the Chairman reported
that Professor Galbraith was unable to accept the honorary
degree offered to him for presentation at the 1965 Congregation. The other six candidates approved by Senate had
