Continuing Education
The annual report on U.B.C. Continuing Education Activities for 1981-82 had been
circulated for information. It was noted that the total enrolment in credit and
non—credit continuing education programs was 91,073. In reply to a query concerning
the summer program for retired people, Mr. Kulich confirmed that the program would
be offered next year but due to lack of funding fees would have to be charged.
However, in an effort to continue the program a fund-raising drive had been
organized which had so far produced over $10,000. It was intended that an
endowment fund be established which would be substantial enough to sustain the
program without having to depend on government funding.
Dean Birch, Chairman of the Committee on Continuing Education, expressed
thanks and appreciation to Mr. Kulich for the work done in compiling the report.
Curriculum Committee (See Appendix B')
Dr. Richards presented the report. It was noted that the proposed change in the
title of Anthropology 202, withheld at the September 15, 1982 Senate meeting, had
now been withdrawn by the Faculty of Arts. 7877.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee (continued)

the Faculty of Arts; a course change from the Faculty of Dentistry and new courses
from the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Dr. Richards   ) That   the   proposals   of  the  Faculties  of  Arts,
Dean Beagrie ) Dentistry and Graduate Studies be approved.
Carried
Library Committee
Dean Larkin presented the following report concerning payment of library overdue
penalties:
"Senate policy intended to treat all library borrowers equitably is not working as
well as it should because some borrowers do not return overdue material requested
by others. The present rules fail to provide an effective means of ensuring that
penalties assessed to faculty members are ultimately paid.
Once a faculty member has returned material wanted by another borrower, there
is no effective penalty no matter how long the delay or how seriously anyone else
has been inconvenienced. Though an overdue fine will have been assessed, there is
no assurance that it will ever be paid. As a result, faculty members who choose to
ignore fines have been able to let them accumulate without penalty. When this
can occur, the penalty system no longer serves its intended purpose: to ensure
reasonable access for other borrowers. There is also considerable cost to the
Library in checking and rechecking on outstanding materials.
When Senate amended the regulations last (Spring, 1977), the Loans Policy Review
Committee commented, "The committee would also like to recommend that
borrowing privileges be suspended for failure to pay late return bills, but this may
have to be delayed until it becomes technically feasible to handle the additional
load. (The automated circulation system is presently able to handle no more than
500 suspended borrowers at a time.)" This summer the circulation system's
capacity to handle and collate masses of status information about books and
borrowers was substantially enlarged. It is now possible to check automatically
whether borrowers are eligible to continue to borrow.
The present regulations as they affect faculty need to be amended. The Senate
Library Committee purposes to Senate that the regulation on suspension of library
borrowing privileges be changed to include suspension for failure to pay fines.
It is intended that bills for fines or replacements would be paid at the time they
were incurred but, failing that, no later than the time of settling year-end
accounts. Borrowed materials, if not requested by others, must in any case be
returned or renewed at that time for the end-of-term recall. " 7878.
Wednesday,  November   17,   1982.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Library Committee (continued)
Dean Larkin ) That   the  Senate-approved   loan   regulations  be
Mr. Mclnnes  ) amended    so    that    the    sentence    "Borrowing
privileges may be suspended for failure to pay
replacement bills" be changed to "Borrowing
privileges may be suspended for failure to pay
bills for replacements or fines".
Carried unanimously

A draft of the section of the Academic Year for inclusion in the Calendar had
been circulated.
Dr. Shaw )        That the proposed dates for the Academic Year
Dean Gardner  ) 1983-84 be included in the Calendar.
Carried
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Revision of regulations concerning transfer from Master's to Doctoral programs
The following proposed revision of regulations has been circulated:
"The possibility for transfer of a student from a Master's to a Doctoral program is
provided in the present regulations as follows (4 (b) page 136 of Calendar):
4.   Applicants for the Ph.D. and D.M.A. degrees must have completed	
(b) a Bachelor's degree with one year of study in a Master's program with
nine units of First Class average, First Class Standing in at least five
of those units (or equivalent), and clear evidence of research ability.
(Transfer directly into a Doctoral program is not normally permitted
beyond the first year of study and will not be permitted after the
completion of the second year in a Master's program).
For a Master's program with thesis the minimum requirements are 6 to 12 units of
courses numbered 300 or above of which 6 units must be at the 500 level.
It is thus possible that the conditions of 4 (b) could be satisfied by taking 9 units of
courses at the 300 or 400 level.
To ensure that transfers from the Master's to the Doctoral program are predicated
on demonstrated ability in at least some 500 level courses it is recommended that
the wording of section 4 (b) be revised to read as follows (revision underlined):
4.   Applicants for the Ph.D. and D.M.A. degrees must have completed
(b)    a Bachelor's degree with one year of study in a Master's program with
nine units of First Class average of which, normally, at least five units 7879.

Report from Regent College
The following report had been circulated for information:
"In accordance with the regulations of the Senate of The University of British
Columbia for Affiliated Colleges, I am reporting on the activities of Regent
College for the stated period. In the Academic Year 1981/82 Regent College
enrolled approximately 192 full-time, post graduate students in its various
programs, a number supplemented by 199 part-time or continuing education
students. At the spring convocation, the following diplomas and degrees were
granted:
Diploma in Christian Studies (I year program) 91
Master of Christian Studies (2 year, thesis) 19
Master of Theological Studies (2 year, non thesis) 4
Master of Divinity (3 year, with Carey Hall) 19
The Summer Schools for both 1981 and 1982 were well-attended, with visiting
lecturers from leading universities and schools throughout the world. Between six
and nine hundred units of c\ass work were completed each summer, while public
lectures for the University and civic community were well attended.
The budget for the fiscal year 1982 totalled a little over one million dollars, most
of which is spent on direct educational expenses. Library services were again
provided by a grant of $37,500 to the Vancouver School of Theology while Regent
College and Carey Hall continued their own library development. By the
beginning of the 1982 fall term, the Regent-Carey Library numbered over 25,000
catalogued volumes. Income from tuition and a government grant continues to
cover about two-thirds of operational expenses, while over $470,000 was received
for capital and operational gift purposes. The budget was again balanced and a
copy of the auditor's report prepared by Touche-Ross and Company is available on
request.
Full-time faculty numbered eleven throughout the period covered, with two
additional faculty provided by Carey Hall. In addition, five adjunct and four
part-time faculty supplemented the program. New faculty appointments included
Loren   Wilkinson  (Ph.D.,  Syracuse)   in  Interdisciplinary Studies  and  Philosophy, 7881.
Wednesday,  November   17,   1982.
Report from Regent College (continued)
"Guenter Strothotte (M.L.S., UBC and Th.D., Erlangen) as Librarian, and Miriam
Adeney (Ph.D., University of Washington) as Adjunct Professor of Anthropology
and Missions.
Regent students are again actively involved in a variety of student ministries on
the campus of UBC while Regent faculty take part frequently in aspects of the
intellectual and cultural life of the institution. We welcome any suggestions as to
ways in which our affiliation may be strengthened to the further mutual benefit of
both UBC and Regent College."
The Chairman drew attention to the number of diplomas and degrees granted by
the College and stated that the College was to be congratulated.
The meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m.
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, December 15, 1982.
