Chairman's remarks and related questions
President Strangway informed Senate that there had been extensive
discussions between UBC and Ritsumeikan University concerning exchange
programs. In connection with this, consideration was being given to the
development of a residence facility on campus to house approximately 100
students from Ritsumeikan University.
President Strangway noted that information on the Financial Statements,
as outlined in the Report of the Vice-President, Administration and Finance,
would be printed in the next edition of UBC Reports. He also noted that the
following issue will contain details of the budget document approved by the
Board of Governors in July.
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations - subject,
where applicable, to the proviso that none of the programs be implemented
without formal reference to the President and the formal agreement of the
President; and that the Deans and Heads concerned with new programs be asked
to indicate the space requirements, if any, of such new programs.

Financial Statements
Copies of the Financial Statements for the year ended March 31, 1989 had
been submitted to Senate as required under section 31 (2) of the University
Act.
Mr. Gellatly, Vice-President, Administration and Finance, was invited to
comment on the various aspects of the Financial Statements. Mr. Gellatly
then highlighted some sections of the report for the information of Senate.
Dean Burns drew attention to Table 2, and noted that in the percentages
listed for the distribution of operating funds between 1985 and 1989 only
the Administration unit showed an increase. Dean Burns pointed out that the
cost of administering within the academic units does not come under
Administration but is incorporated in the percentage assigned to the
Academic and Associated Academic Services. He therefore felt that there had
been a diminishment over time in terms of percentage, and a further
deterioration in the academic function due to the increased administrative
load performed in the academic units. 9581.
September 13, 1989
Financial Statements  (continued)
Mr. Gellatly commented that there were some new or more expanded units
in the administrative group such as Community Relations, Information Systems
Management, Health and Safety, which accounted for the increase. He noted
that where the plant operating costs had been 12.2% in 1985, they had now
dropped down to 11.2%, so although there had been some increases in
administration there were some decreases in areas other than the Faculties.
In response to a query, Mr. Gellatly stated that the figures for Student
Awards and Services had gone from $7.9 million up to $8,681 million, so
although there was not much of an increase in the general purpose operating
fund source for student awards there had been significant increases in other
funds such as the trust funds.
Attention was drawn to the increase in legal fees.  Mr. Gellatly
explained that there had been some heavy legal costs in connection with
arbitration cases, faculty arbitrations, lease agreements, and an increase
in activity in research agreements between UBC and industry.
In response to a query concerning Athletics and Sports Services, Mr.
Gellatly explained that $742,000 is paid out of the general purpose
operating fund towards the athletic program. The total athletic program
shown in schedule 6 of the Financial Statements amounted to $1,811 million,
and of that amount $743,000 was provided from the general purpose operating
fund; the difference is provided by student activities fees as well as
event admission fees. He explained that the figure of $258,000 is a
year-end Athletics and Sports Services surplus. Ancillary Enterprises are
required to operate on a break even basis but year-end surpluses are carried
forward to benefit future periods and, as in the case of the Bookstore, a
year-end deficit must be recovered from future operations. 9582.
September 13, 1989
Financial Statements  (continued)
Dr. Elder reminded Senate that last year she had requested information
on the extra cost involved for the Telereg mailing. Dr. Elder noted that
this information was not in the Financial Statements but that she had been
informed that the 1988-89 Telereg mailing costs amounted to $126,728. less
mailing costs for former in-person registration amounting to $49,246. so
that the increased cost in postage alone was $77,482.
Dr. Sobrino noted that the figures for the central administration as
opposed to the Faculties were quite clear. However, he felt that it would
be helpful if figures could be provided that were more relevant to
determining the amount spent on teaching and research and the amount spent
on the administration of these functions, and what the increases in costs
have been over the past few years.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
School of Physical Education and Recreation - proposal re fail standing
Dr. Elder, Chairman of the Committee, presented the report. The
Committee recommended approval of the following proposal from the School
of Physical Education and Recreation:
"That fail standing in a session will be assigned if a student does not
meet one of the following conditions:
a) passes in all units attempted;
OR
b) if taking more than 6 units, passes in at least three- fifths of them
AND obtains an overall average of at least 60% in three-fifths of
the units taken;
OR
c) if taking 6 or fewer units, passes in at least one-half of them." 9583.

(continued)
Calendar statement:
"At any level of study, a student who is assigned fail standing will be
required to discontinue studies at the University for at least a year.
A student who fails at the first or second-year level will not normally
be permitted to re-enrol to repeat that level of work, but if that level
is completed successfully elsewhere, consideration will then be given to
the student's readmission to the University. A student who fails for a
second time, either in repeating a year or in a later year, will be
required to withdraw from the University; after a period of at least a
year, an appeal to the Senate Admissions Committee for permission to
re-enrol will be considered."
Dr. Elder     )  That the proposal of the School of Physical
Mr. Horvat    ) Education and Recreation concerning fail

Committee on Student Awards
In presenting the report, Dr. Cook, Chairman of the Committee, drew
attention to the Basant Singh and Harnam Kaur Singh Fellowship in the
amount of $12,000.
Dr. Cook explained a change in procedure for the recommendation of
prizes, particularly in the Faculty of Law. There were two prizes being
offered for more than the usual amount of $250. First, the Michael E.
Moran Memorial Prize, listed at $400 and second, a number of prizes in the
name of Rosina and Gabriel Iacobucci totalling $850. Although the
Committee normally recommended prizes in the sum of $250 or less, the

IN MEMORIAM
JOHN VALENTINE CLYNE
1902-1989
One of the most treasured resources of a great university is a loyal
and committed alumni. With the passing of John Valentine Clyne this
university has lost an alumnus who devoted much of his life to the
betterment of his Alma Mater.
Jack Clyne was born in Vancouver in 1902. After his early schooling
he entered UBC in 1919 and began a lifelong association with the
university. As an undergraduate he participated to the full in
university life, playing leading roles in the theatre, athletics, and
student politics. As a leading participant in the Great Trek, Mr. Clyne
actively lobbied the government of the day to create a permanent site
for the university at Point Grey. 9589.

Tributes Committee
Memorial Minutes (continued)
After his graduation in 1923, Jack Clyne studied marine law in the
United Kingdom and was called to the British Columbia bar in 1927. A
successful legal career culminated with his appointment to the Supreme
Court of British Columbia in 1950. In 1957 he assumed a directorship
with MacMillan Bloedel and later served as Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer until his retirement in 1973.
Mr. Clyne's extraordinary record of public service involved leading
roles in three influential Royal Commissions and the creation of the
Canadian Institute for Advanced Legal Studies. His many honours
included a knighthood in the Order of St. John in 1959 and a Companion
of the Order of Canada in 1972.
During his busy career, however, Jack Clyne always found time to
serve this university. He was elected to Senate for three terms between
1951 and 1960. In 1978, as Chancellor, he began another six years of
service on both the Board of Governors and the Senate. In recognition,
the university awarded him an honorary doctorate in 1984 and established
the prestigious J. V. Clyne Lecture Program.
Gifted with enormous energy and broad intellectual interests, Mr.
Clyne's opinions were valued highly at many levels of society. While
his views were forthright and often controversial, he held no fears and
sought no favours. While his values were traditional, his principles
were steadfast and untarnished.
John Valentine Clyne was a great Canadian. He cared deeply about his
country, his province, his university and society-at-large. Throughout
his many careers he energetically pursued those goals which he saw as
essential to the betterment of each of his associations.
To his wife, Betty, and to his surviving family, the Senate of The
University of British Columbia extends its deepest sympathy.

Report of the Registrar on Registration
The Spring, Summer and preliminary enrolment figures for the Winter
Session 1989 were circulated at the meeting.  The Registrar stated that the
preliminary enrolment figures for the Winter Session were not comparable with 9590.
September 13, 1989
Report of the Registrar on Registration (continued)
the figures for 1988 due to a change in the deadline date for payment of
tuition fees for those using the Telereg system. He explained that last
year's statistics did not include the students who were de-registered for
non-payment of fees, whereas this year's statistics include a number of
students who were subsequently de-registered, some of whom have now
re-registered.
In response to a query by Dean Burns as to the discrepancy of 25
students in the figures circulated and the number accepted by the Faculty of
Law, the Registrar agreed to look into this matter.
Mission Statement and Strategic Plan
The following items were submitted to Senate for information:
1. Mission Statement
The Board of Governors approved the Mission Statement submitted by
Senate, subject to the following amendments, which have been
incorporated in the statement:
(i)  The first sentence to be shortened to:  "To be a world renowned
institution of higher education and research."
(ii) A new point #8 to be added:  "8.  work for the equality of
opportunity  for  qualified  candidates  by  enabling  them to
overcome  non-academic  barriers,  whether  they be  social or
financial limitations or barriers of disability;".
2. Strategic Plan
A Strategic Plan to Implement the Mission of The University of British
Columbia for the decade preceding the 21st century.
Ratification of the U.B.C. courses in Arts, Science and Education being
offered at the Colleges
The following report on the status of degree-granting programs with the
colleges had been circulated:
"Both Okanagan and Cariboo Colleges will be offering upper division
courses in Arts and Science, and the UBC Elementary Teacher Training
Program will be offered at Cariboo starting in September, despite the very 9591.
September 13, 1989
Ratification of the U.B.C. courses in Arts, Science and Education being
offered at the Colleges  (continued)
"short time for planning, recruiting and advertising of programs.
Enrolment at the third year level is low (ranging from 6 students in
Science at Okanagan to 16 students in Education at Cariboo). However, the
second-year enrolments at both colleges is very encouraging - up between
33 and 45% from last year - which indicates a renewed interest in higher
education because of the availability of the degree-granting programs.
Library support for the colleges, especially during this development
stage, will be flexible to allow quick response. The single most
important way of providing assistance will be through interlibrary loans.
Provision of advice is critical at this time, and two senior UBC
librarians have been named to liaise with the college librarians.
Arrangements are in place for an expedited interlending service, using
electronic mail, fax where appropriate, and overnight Priority Post
courier service for bulky materials. Experience will dictate what
materials need to be set aside for UBC users, but to begin, only material
that has been placed on reserve will be excluded from interlending.
Selection of the courses to be offered in Arts and Science was made
jointly by the college and relevant UBC department, and when offered at
the colleges, each course will conform with UBC standards. Instructors
have been interviewed by representatives of the UBC departments and their
credentials have been evaluated. The following is a list of courses that
will be offered this fall at the colleges. All instructional assignments
have been approved by the relevant UBC department and office of the dean."

Vice-President Birch reported that the Faculties and the Department
Heads involved in the offering of UBC upper level courses at the colleges
had played a very constructive role. Each of the Faculties concerned had
appointed a coordinator who has worked very closely with each of the
colleges. He stated that the substantial increase in enrolment in the First
and Second Years at the colleges suggests that members of the community are
more interested in the programs now that upper level courses are being
offered.
Vice-President Birch ) That Senate ratify the slate of
Dr. Weiler ) courses in Arts and Science offered
in this Academic Year at Cariboo College
and Okanagan College under the University
College Program.
Acting Dean Dolphin commented that the Faculty of Science expected to
continue liaison with the colleges in terms of the development of courses
and the timetabling of examinations, which would be subject to the approval
of the Faculty. Also the weighting of examinations would be well screened. 9594.
September 13, 1989
Ratification of the U.B.C. courses in Arts, Science and Education being
offered at the Colleges  (continued)
In response to a query by Dr. Grace concerning procedures for hiring
instructors to teach UBC courses at the colleges, Acting Dean Dolphin
explained that in the case of the Faculty of Science, the colleges had
advertised  the  various  positions,  a  short  list  was  arrived  at  in
consultation with UBC, and candidates were interviewed both in the interior
and at UBC.  Before offers were made to any of the candidates, an advisory
committee consisting of the eleven department heads was consulted.
Acting Dean Elkins stated that the operation of advertising and
interviewing was similar for the Faculty of Arts. However, there were some
instructors in the colleges with the qualifications to teach upper level
courses so it was agreed that only new appointments would be interviewed.
Dr. Grace raised a query concerning the Library. Vice-President Birch
confirmed that assisting the colleges would put an additional burden on
interlibrary loans, both in the normal course of events and interlibrary
facilitated by the electronic communication and courier service. He
explained that the University was subsidized for this in two ways: firstly,
by a one year grant from the Ministry to the three universities of
approximately $400,000. with a request that the universities assist the
colleges in the upgrading of their libraries and in the maintenance of
library services to students; and, secondly, specifically within UBC's
contract and funding from the Ministry there is provision for the support of
a number of services within the Library. The universities have also
strongly supported the colleges in their efforts to make known their needs
to the Ministry for the upgrading of their own collections, and assurances
have been given that substantial funding will be available over the next few
years. 9595.
September 13, 1989
Ratification of the U.B.C. courses in Arts, Science and Education being
offered at the Colleges  (continued)
Vice-President Birch stated that it was quite clear that, with the
exception of books placed on reserve in the UBC Library, people in the
colleges will have a call on UBC books.  He stated that although the books
will be subject to recall it was likely that they will be less available to
people on campus as a result of the programs in the colleges.  It was hoped,
however, that by next year the services at the colleges would be much
improved.
The Registrar reported that the enrolment figures for Okanagan College
were: 44 students in Arts and 6 in Science, and at Cariboo College: 47
students in Arts, 13 in Science, and 16 in Education.
Mr. Watson, the Acting Librarian, informed Senate that funds were being
provided by the colleges for interlibrary loan transactions.
Dean Sheehan reminded Senate that the instructors teaching the Education
courses are appointed by UBC and that the program at Cariboo College is a
UBC program, in accordance with the requirements of the Association of
College and Teachers. Dean Sheehan stated that some instructors are hired
on a sessional basis and some UBC faculty go up to Cariboo College on a
regular basis to teach these courses.
Dr. Sobrino drew attention to the list of Physics courses being offered
and stated that he was not aware of any discussions having taken place in
the Department of Physics concerning this list.
Dr. Auld stated that a committee, which included the head of the
Department of Physics, and some delegates within that department, travelled
to Kelowna and to Kamloops to check that the courses were at the same level
and of the same standard as those being taught at UBC. 9596.
September 13, 1989
Ratification of the U.B.C. courses in Arts, Science and Education being
offered at the Colleges  (continued)
In response to a query as to what the full programs would be for degrees
in Arts and Science, it was stated that both the Faculty of Arts and the
Faculty of Science would be developing general programs in the near future.
The motion was put and carried.
Education Abroad
Vice-President Birch informed Senate that for several years a number of
Faculties had developed education abroad programs or exchange programs.
While these programs in a number of instances have been approved by the
Board of Governors in relation to the fee paying status of the exchange
students, or in relation to access to housing, there have been proposals
recently, which, unlike the previous ones, may have more academic
implications. Consequently, it was felt that this matter should be referred
to the Senate Academic Policy Committee for their comments.
Mr. McMillan requested that the Academic Policy Committee consult with
the Committee on Student Awards when discussing policy matters that might
affect the awarding of scholarships.
Dr. Tees, Chairman of the Academic Policy Committee, confirmed that the
Committee would consult other Senate Committees if the issues were in their
domain.
