A statement from Regent College had been circulated. Dr. Clark
stated that in asking for a committee to be set up he did not
consider that Senate was being asked to accept in principle the
idea of affiliation.  It would be up to the committee to bring

Dr. Warren    )    meeting to consider the request oh Regent
College to ahhiHate with The University

part-time members. B^g
Business arising from the Minutes

Wednesday, March 22, 1972.
(ii) Motion by Dr. Clark concerning request of Regent College to
affiliate with the University (continued)
It was pointed out t;hat Regent College was already an affiliate
of the Vancouver School of Theology which was affiliated with The
University of British Columbia and therefore had some degree of
indirect affiliation with the University.
Concern was expressed on academic grounds about the extent
to which The University of British Columbia should involve itself
with a theological institution having as its basic purpose
evangelicalism.
After further discussion it was suggested the motion be
amended to read:-
"That Senate strike a committee to examine the principle
of affiliation with an institution with an evangelical
intent and to enquire into the request of Regent College
to affiliate with The University of British Columbia."
The motion as amended was put and carried.
(iii) Progress report of the Senate Committee on Faculty of Medicine
Clinical Clerkship
Dr. Hall stated that at the previous meeting a motion was
passed by which Senate established a committee to examine a
number of problems associated with the Fourth Year Clinical
Clerkship in the Faculty of Medicine.
The committee had held a preliminary meeting and there had
been discussions with the Medical Undergraduate Society in an mmmm.

Business arising from the Minutes
(iii) Progress report of the Senate Committee on Faculty of Medicine
Clinical Clerkship (continued)
effort to get the work of the committee under way.  So far the
committee had been able to identify three or four areas that it
was felt would be worthwhile examining.  Namely, the overall
length of the clerkship; the relationship between the clerkship
programme and the minimum qualification requirements set down by
the various accreditation authorities in Canada; the question of
the balance between the academic part of the programme and the
service elements of it in which these students are in fact
employed at the Vancouver General Hospital; and also the extent
to which the academic content of the programme could be more
clearly defined and controlled.
It was also reported that the Faculty of Medicine through
their curriculum committee had struck a sub-committee to look
specifically at the same kinds of problems, and the activities
of both committees would be closely co-ordinated.
Dr. Hall stated that the committee hoped to be in a position
to report to the April meeting of Senate with recommendations on
the issues involved in the operation of the Fourth Year Clinical
Clerkship.
The Secretary reported the following membership of the
committee:-
Dr. N. A. Hall (Chairman) Dr. J. M. Norris

(iv) Motion by Mr. Robinson concerning committee to investigate
student membership on the Board of Governors
Mr. Robinson )   That Senate strike an ad hoc committee
Mr. Robbins  )  to investigate the ramihications oh the
question oh student membership on the
Board oh Governors,
Mr, Robinson explained that the proposed committee would
study some of the issues involved in order that Senate would
have a clear idea of the implications and consequences of student
membership on the Board of Governors.
It was suggested that the existing Committee on the
Universities Act would be the appropriate committee to study
the question as it had already engaged in some preliminary
discussion of the membership and composition of the Board of
Governors.
Mr. Robinson stated that he did not think this existing
committee could examine the question intensively enough and
report back to Senate in time for the next elections.
It was pointed out that since a student member of Senate
could be elected by Senate to serve on the Board of Governors
the election of a student waa not dependent upon when the
committee made its report.
Following further discussion the motion was lost, 17:36.
Mr. York requested that his vote be recorded as an abstention. 5588.
Wednesday, March 22, 19 72.
Business arising from the Minutes
(iv) Motion by Mr. Robinson concerning committee to investigate
student membership on the Board of Governors (continued)
It was agreed that the question of student membership on
the Board of Governors be referred to the Committee on the
Universities Act.
(v)  Graduate courses in Philosophy (F.5573 & 5581)
At the previous meeting approval of recommended changes
in unit values of Philosophy courses was deferred pending
clarification by the Faculty of Arts.
Dean Kenny explained that in any one year any of the courses
may be offered for a fixed value such as 3 units or 1*5 units.  It
was not a question of some students taking the courses for 3 units
and some taking them for 1*5 units.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Dr, Chitty presented the report. The committee recommended
approval of a proposal by the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences to
raise promotion standards.  However, it did not recommend approval
of the proposed admission and promotion policy of the Faculty of
Science in view of the fact that the problem was now less urgent
and because the proposals would probably create difficulties for
other Faculties which might be obliged to accept students rejected
by the Faculty of Science. 5590.
Wednesday, March 22, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee (continued)
The committee recognized that the problem might occur again and
recommended that alternative solutions be looked into either by the
Senate Admissions Committee or by some other committee.
Dr. Chitty apologized for the long delay in bringing
recommendations to Senate regarding the promotions policies of
the Faculties, and outlined the sequence of events that followed
a request of Senate to the Faculties in 1969 for consideration
of admission and promotions policy in relation to possible
limitation of enrolment.
The committee had considered proposals of the Faculty of Science
and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. A proposal of the Faculty
of Agricultural Sciences had been submitted and subsequently withdrawn.
Faculties reporting no intention of recommending changes were: Arts,
Commerce and Business Administration, Dentistry and Medicine.
Dean Riedel )    That the proposal oh the FaculXy oh
Dr. Chitty  )   Pharmaceutical Sciences to raise their
promotion requirements bz approvzd.
Carried
During the subsequent discussion Dean Volkoff withdrew the
proposals of the Faculty of Science.  Senate agreed to a suggestion
that the Faculty review the question under current conditions and
report back as quickly as possible.

no more than three units toward the Bachelor of Laws degree.
Each student must receive advance permission to register in
such courses from the Curriculum Committee, which will base

Carried
Dr. Norris gave notice of motion concerning a procedure to deal
with the regulation of courses entitled "Problems in International
Relations".  The courses were authorized in general by Senate in
1969. However, there was no provision for the examination of the
changes in these courses from year to year and the committee intended
recommending a procedure whereby the Senate Curriculum Committee and
the Faculty of Arts Curriculum Committee would examine these.
Committee on Degree Programmes for Part-time Students
Dr. Pearse presented the report of the committee, the basic
recommendations of which were:-
(i) That the Senate adopt an explicit policy oh encouraging
the development oh opportunities hor part-time study
toward degrees where this is academically and hinancially
heasible. 5593.

In amendment:
Dean White   )  That the report be reherred back to
Dr. McDowell )   the committee in order that an
addendum be prepared which will relate
the recommendations to the enrolment
policy oh the University.
Dean White stated that since the current enrolment policy of the
University called for restrictions of various kinds he was concerned
with the recommendation of the committee to abandon restrictive
requirements or unnecessary special procedures for part-time students.
He suggested that the committee be asked to provide more guidance and
information in relation to the current enrolment policy of the
University. 5594.
Wednesday, March 22, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Degree Programmes for Part-time Students  (continued)
Members  felt  that  the report should be  received and discussed
before Senate considered any amendments.
The motion to receive the report was  put and carried.
The committee had been appointed in September 1970  to examine
the need for increased opportunities  for  students  to pursue degree
studies on a part-time basis,  and specifically,  to consult the
Faculties on this question.
Dr.  Pearse stated that  the committee had  canvassed the Faculties
to establish  their assessment of the need  for opportunities  for
part-time degree programmes.     It had  also  investigated the arrangements
for part-time degree programmes at  the University and the general
trends  in educational philosophy  relating  to this  question.    The
committee also tried to assess  the need for new arrangements  for
part-time studies at the University in the light of present
arrangements and the changes going on in the structure of
post-secondary education in British  Columbia,
The committee felt that the whole issue of part-time study toward
degrees had already become an important and urgent matter and that the
University had not  responded to  the need.     There was  an increasing
need for constant  retraining in the professions.    Many universities
provided part-time study opportunities  for special students, adult
students or part-time students,  and these arrangements were made in
m 5595.
Wednesday, March 22, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Degree Programmes for Part-time Students (continued)
the form of evening colleges, adult faculties, extension programmes,
etc.  Several studies had been made of the problem in recent years,
all of which recognized the changing context in which Universities
were operating and the need to adapt to these changes by altering the
form in which degree programmes were offered.
The three colleges in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver City, Capilano
and Douglas provide studies in the First and Second Year for a large
number of students working on a part-time basis. This development
emphasized the need for the University to pay particular attention
to the question of part-time study opportunities at the Third and
Fourth Year levels to complement what is taking place in the rest of
the Province,
The committee had difficulty in assessing the need for change at
the University.  Current statistics did not provide an adequate picture
of the present situation. The definition of a part-time student was
unclear. There were explicit constraints and obstacles hindering
students wishing to study toward a degree on a part-time basis. The
response from the Faculties had not revealed a strong feeling that
part-time studies were needed but the committee felt that a need may
exist which is not recognized. Many potential part-time candidates
were deterred by reading the Calendar requirements. There appeared
to be a common belief that the University was not in the business of
offering part-time programmes. 5596.
Wednesday, March 22, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Degree Programmes for Part-time Students (continued)
Several alternative approaches to the question of substantially
increasing opportunities for part-time studies were outlined in the
report, i.e. an Evening College; a Faculty of Part-time Studies; an
Overload System; or an Extended Day System.
The conclusions of the report indicated that:-
- the demand for increased opportunities for part-time degree
programmes was significant and would increase
- the university had not adapted to the need and that there were
obstacles which could not be justified on academic grounds
- part-time students did not pose any threat to academic
standards at the University
- in view of developments in post-secondary education in B.C.
the most urgent need at the University was for provision for
part-time study opportunities at the Third and Fourth Year
levels
- the need varied substantially among faculties
- expansion of part-time study opportunities would raise a
number of problems relating to the "pass/fail" system,
the scholarship and bursary system, etc.
- careful planning and action were required on the part of the
University toward making part-time study opportunities
available.
The Chairman stated that the report was very timely and the
questions raised would have to be considered.
A lengthy debate followed.  Dean White stated that the Faculty
of Commerce and Business Administration had recently discussed the
question of how many part-time students could be accommodated and
how that would relate to the University enrolment policy as a whole. 5597.
Wednesday, March 22, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Degree Programmes for Part-time Students (continued)
The Dean again requested that the Faculties be given some direction
about enrolment policy.
An opinion was expressed that although this was an important
point the enrolment policy of the University should not necessarily
be regarded as constant as at present and that the kind of
examination requested in the report should be the first step in
arriving at enrolment policy, not the reverse.
Dr. Pearse   )   That thz h&cultizs  bz rzquzsted to look
Mr. Robinson )   -onto thz academic and hinancial heasibility
oh part-timz study toward dzgrzzs, and to
consider thz problems outlinzd in
rzcommzndations   (ii),   (iii), and (iv)
oh thz rzport.
It was agreed that the word "abandon" be deleted from
recommendation (ii) of the report.
Dean Finn stated that whilst he was not against part-time
education toward degrees he felt that the Faculties should be given
some time to consider the implications of the report.
Dean Finn    )   That thz motion  be tab-ted.
Dr. Restrepo )
Lost
Senate agreed to a suggestion that a co-ordinating committee
be established by the Chairman of Senate to provide the Faculties
with information concerning enrolment and other problems connected
with part-time studies.
The motion was put and carried.

New Programmes Committee
Doctor of Philosophy in Musicology (Ph.D.)
Dr. Belshaw presented the report.
The committee was satisfied that there was a sufficient
base in the department for the degree and that future adjustments
and developments in the Department of Music would make the
position even stronger.  Under these circumstances the committee
was in favour of the proposal.
Dr. Belshaw )   That Senate approve the proposal oh the

the degree might be taken. 5599.

Reports of Committees of Senate
New Programmes Committee
Master of Music in Ethnomusicology (M.Mus.) (continued)
The committee noted, however, that some legitimate
approaches to musicology involved competence in the analysis
of the culture and social environment in which the music has
a place, including aesthetic norms.  It was also noted that
only the most informal contacts had taken place with members
of the Departments of Asian Studies and Anthropology, and the
committee felt it was regrettable that the programme had
reached this stage without formal exchange of ideas and
communication between the departments.
Dr. Belshaw )   That Senate approve thz proposal
Dean Kenny  )   oh the Faculty oh Graduate Studies
to ohher the degree oh Master oh
Music in Ethnomusicology (M.Mus.)
but recommends that thz dean oh Arts
request the department oh Music to
enter into more active exchange oh
ideas with cognate departments
interested in the hteld, to explore
the desirability and practicability
oh developing the programme in the
huture with more active interdisciplinary
components.
Carried
It was agreed that the graduate courses in Music outlined on
page 5581 be approved subject to no objections being raised by the
Senate Curriculum Committee. Reference was made to the title of
Music 547 and 548, Private Applied, and it was suggested that the
Curriculum Committee should recommend a change in title.
