Minutes of previous meeting
Mr. Pearce    )  That the minutes of the Fourth regular
Mr. Thorn      ) meeting of Senate for the Session 1988-89,
having been circulated, be taken as read
and adopted.
Carried
Business arising from the Minutes
(i)  Tuition fees - motions re due dates  (p.9400)
Mr. Speers    ) 1. That Senate request the Board of
Mr. Haji     )    Governors to increase the Telereg
deposit from $100 to $200.
2. That the first term tuition fees
due date be the first day after
Labour Day^ 9429.
January 18, 1989
Business arising from the Minutes
(i)  Tuition fees - motions re due dates  (continued)
In speaking to the motion, Mr. Speers stated that the only argument
he had heard in favour of the August 31st deadline for payment of
tuition fees was that it would allow accurate class lists to be
distributed to professors on the first day of classes. He felt that
the urgency for this distribution was questionable, since, for the
past several years, payment had not been due until the third week in
September. Mr. Speers also noted that in the second term in the
1989/90 session, tuition fee payments are due on the January 16, well
after the first day of classes. A further point made by Mr. Speers
was that the class lists distributed the first day of classes are
likely to be inaccurate since late Telereg registration begins on the
same day. Mr. Speers felt that by requesting the Board of Governors
to increase the deposit, only legitimate students would use the
Telereg system in the first instance.
In conclusion, Mr. Speers noted that on checking Calendars of other
universities across Canada, due dates for payment of tuition fees
ranged from the first day after Labour Day to September 30th, the
average date for the first tuition fee payment being approximately
September 13th.
Professor Anne Piternick, Chairman of the Project Advisory
Committee for the Student information System which advised on
Telereg, was invited to speak to Senate on the choice of the date for
payment of tuition fees. 9430.
January 18, 1989
Business arising from the Minutes
(i)  Tuition fees - motions re due dates  (continued)
Professor piternick stated that the due date for payment of tuition
fees had originally been set at August 30, the Wednesday before
Labour Day. in 1988, the due date was the Wednesday before Labour
Day which fell on August 31, and in 1989 the due date would again
fall on August 30. The Committee had asked for the date to be
changed to August 31, or later if possible, consistent with having
students cancelled for non-payment of fees by the first day of
classes. The Committee thought it important that students be
cancelled for non-payment of fees and that the places they had
occupied be opened up to other students by the first day of classes.
However, it had been explained to the Committee that it would not be
possible to cancel students for non-payment by the first day of
classes unless the due date was August 31. This apparently being due
to the amount of time taken by banks to process payments, and for the
information to be passed on to the University. Professor Piternick
explained that if the first day after Labour Day were to be chosen as
the due date for payment of fees, the processing at the banks would
take place on that day and the day after. The information would then
have to be checked by the Registrar's Office against registration
records to ensure that there were no discrepancies. Therefore the
earliest time for cancellation of students for non-payment would be
three days after Labour Day, which would mean that places could not
be opened up for other students until the Friday after Labour Day. 9431.
January 18, 1989
Business arising from the Minutes
(i) Tuition fees - motions re due dates  (continued)
In conclusion, professor piternick noted that in August 1988
approximately 840 students were cancelled for non-payment of fees,
which would mean that somewhere in the region of 4000 course places
would be opened up on the Friday after Labour Day as a result of the
proposed later date, if a similar number of students were to be
cancelled for non-payment of fees in September 1989. For this reason
the Project Advisory Committee had recommended August 31, with the
hope that the date could be made later in future years.
Dr. Weiler spoke against the motion, stating that due to enrolment
restrictions in the Faculty of Science, and possibly other Faculties,
when a student does not turn up it almost invariably means another
student is denied a place. He felt that the argument that other
universities had cut-off dates later than UBC was invalid as other
universities did not have the same enrolment limitations as UBC.
Dr. vanderstoep spoke in favour of the motion. He said that as a
member of the Project Advisory Committee, he had argued in favour of
a later deadline date. He thought that the August 30 deadline was
unfair to students, and had favoured the August 31 or later deadline
suggested by the Committee, in the hope that it would be later. One
of the concerns of the Committee had been the release of places
occupied by students not intending to come to UBC. He felt that the
number of students cancelled for non-payment of fees last year, which
resulted in approximately 4000 out of approximately 25,000 course
places  being  opened  up,  was  a  comparatively  small  number. 9432.
January 18, 1989
Business arising from the Minutes
(i)  Tuition fees - motions re due dates  (continued)
Dr. Vanderstoep said that the higher deposit should take care of
the concerns voiced by Dr. Weiler, and if that were the case the
later date would be appropriate.
Student senators speaking in favour of the motion noted that the
AMS council supported the proposal, as did students who had been
canvassed regarding this issue. It was also noted that many students
worked on contracts during the summer and were paid lump sums at the
end of the period. This made it difficult for them to obtain payment
in time to pay their tuition fees.
Vice-President Birch expressed concern that some students would be
denied admission as a result of places being assigned to students who
would not be cancelled for non-payment of fees until after Labour
Day. Vice-President Birch was not convinced that increasing the
deposit from $100 to $200 would have the desired effect, since, in
his opinion, students probably did not put down the $100 deposit
without careful thought.
In response to a query, the Registrar stated that if students were
cancelled for non-payment of fees, they did not lose their status as
students. However, if a student is in a program where space is
limited, the student could lose that place, but more typically it
would be a particular class where spaces were limited where students
would have a problem. He went on to say that if a student is in a
program where there is space available in each section that the
student is taking, then there would be no problem, other than the 9433.

Business arising from the Minutes

inconvenience of getting through to the Telereg and registering
again. in sections such as first year Science laboratories, where
there is great competition to get into certain activities, students
will have difficulty, in some cases, in getting into any section.
In response to a query, the Registrar confirmed that a significant
number of students arranged to have fee deferments, but they were not
necessarily those students who faced the problem of late payment for
summer employment.
Mr. Hender, Director of Awards and Financial Aid, was invited to
respond to a query as to whether those students on contract work, who
did not get paid in time to pay their tuition fees, could apply for
deferment of fees.
Mr. Hender explained that the University had attempted to develop
areas where a deferment of fees could be accommodated easily and with
the minimum of discussion, i.e. where students fees are billed to
third parties, students who hold major external graduate awards, and
students who are on teaching research assistantships whose fees are
being paid through payroll deductions. The other major area of
deferments is for students who have student loans but are unable to
negotiate the loan before the first day of classes, due to a
requirement of the Provincial Government. Mr. Hender went on to say
that there is a small group of students with other kinds of financial
problems, and where that has occurred the University has tried to
accommodate them.  However, in some cases students have not clearly 9434.
January 18, 1989
Business arising from the Minutes
(i)  Tuition fees - motions re due dates  (continued)
articulated their reasons for deferment, and during the first year of
the deferment policy the University has not really granted a
significant number of awards in the "exceptional" category. He
stated that he was not aware of any particular number of students
having difficulties over the contract question. Certainly, where
students have legitimate concerns, the University would try to be
flexible.
After further discussion, the motion was put and carried
(ii) Senate Committee on Academic Policy
Procedures for dealing with Medical, Emotional or Other Problems
(pp.9292, 9328-9, 9348, 9359-62)
Dr. Tees, chairman of the Committee, reminded Senate that at the
November 16, 1988 meeting of Senate, a proposed statement on Medical,
Emotional and Other Problems had been referred to the Committee.  Dr.
Tees informed Senate that the committee had subsequently discussed
the proposed statement with the Director of Student Health Services,
the Senate Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing, and the Senate
Agenda  Committee.   The  following  revised  statement  had  been
prepared.  Senate agreed to Dr. Tees' request that the first sentence
be added to the statement circulated:
Proposed Calendar Statement
MEDICAL, EMOTIONAL OR OTHER PROBLEMS
"The policy of the University is to encourage students to complete
their course work and degree programs. Students who are suffering
from medical, emotional or other problems which may adversely affect
their attendance or their performance in a course or program must
notify the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of their degree program,
as well as their instructors, as soon as possible. 9435.
January 18, 1989
Business arising from the Minutes
(ii) Senate Committee on Academic Policy  (continued)
Procedures for dealing with Medical, Emotional or Other Problems
(pp.9292, 9328-9, 9348, 9359-62)
"While the University will make an effort to ensure that students are
not unduly penalized, it is the responsibility of the student to
notify the Dean's Office as close as possible to the time his or her
attendance or performance is adversely affected. The University, in
making a decision on a student's standing or on any reconsideration
or appeal of that decision, will not normally take into account
untimely notifications. When the student notifies the Dean's Office,
he or she will be asked to provide such evidence as is deemed
appropriate.
The action that may be taken by the University will depend on the
circumstances of each case. If a student is permitted or required to
withdraw, the University will ensure that a student who is in good
academic standing at withdrawal is permitted to re-enrol in the
program of studies from which he or she withdrew. The student who is
permitted or required to withdraw may be told the time period during
which an application for re-enrolment will be permitted. A suitable
medical certificate may be required to help satisfy the University
that the student who is permitted to re-enrol is ready to
successfully continue his or her studies.
In addition to acting in accordance with this general policy,
students should also observe the specific provisions on
"Examinations" on page 21, and on "Routine Regarding Absence due to
Sickness or Injury", on page 29."
The Senate Academic Policy committee recommends the following changes
to the General Information section of the Calendar:
1988/89 Calendar - page 29
Current entry:
3. Routine Regarding Absence due to Sickness and injury
(a) Students absent from December or April examinations must submit a
certificate obtained from a doctor during their illness. This
certificate must be in the Health Service office within the current
examination period.
(b) Students absent at other times during the session because of
illness should report their absence to their instructors. A
physician's statement of illness is not required. 9436.

"(a) Students absent from December or April examinations must submit
a statement of illness obtained from a doctor during their illness.
This statement must be in the hands of the Student Health Service
within the current examination period. if appropriate, a medical
certificate will be issued by the Student Health Service and copies
forwarded to the Registrar and the Dean of the Faculty or Director of
the School in which the student is registered.
"(b) students absent at other times during the session because of
illness should report their absence to their instructors. A medical
certificate from the Student Health Service is not normally needed
but may be required by the Dean's Office where periods of absence
significantly affect a student's course grades or ability to meet
other program requirements."
1988/89 Calendar - page 21
Current entry:
Examinations
Formal examinations are held in most courses in April and in many
courses in December. Other tests are held at the discretion of the
instructors and Faculties concerned. All prescribed examinations are
mandatory. A student who misses a terminal examination either in
December or April because of illness or domestic affliction should
apply to the Dean of the Faculty within two days after the close of
the examination period for special consideration.
This paragraph should now read:
"Examinations
Formal examinations are held in most courses in April and in many
courses in December. Other tests are held at the discretion of the
instructors and Faculties concerned. All prescribed examinations are

April because of medical, emotional or other problems must notify the
Dean of their Faculty or Director of their School as soon as
possible. If there is a medical problem they must submit a statement
of illness obtained from a doctor to the Student Health Service.
This statement must be in the hands of the Student Health Service
within the current examination period. if appropriate, a formal
medical certificate will be issued by the Student Health Service with
copies forwarded to the Registrar and the Dean of the Faculty or
Director of the School in which the student is registered." 9437.

Business arising from the Minutes
(ii)  Senate Committee on Academic Policy  (continued)
Procedures for dealing with Medical, Emotional or Other Problems

Dr. Tees     )  That the Calendar statement on Medical,
Dr. Morrison )  Emotional or Other Problems, and the
proposed changes to the General information
section of the Calendar, be approved.
In response to a query as to who would make the decision as to
whether a medical certificate is required, Dr. Tees said that each
individual Faculty would be responsible for deciding what they
require.
Attention was drawn to the words "within the current examination
period" under item 3(a) and the paragraph headed "Examinations". it
was suggested that this be changed to "as soon as possible" in order
to protect students who might be too ill to obtain a statement of
illness from their doctors in the time allowed.
In amendment:
Mr. Bush     ) That the words "within the current
Mr. Pettingale) examination period" be changed to
"as soon as possible".

The motion was put and carried.
(iii) Language requirements - Mandarin Chinese 11 and 12 and Japanese 11
and 12  (p.9381)
At the previous meeting,  Dr.  Elder  had agreed to obtain
information on how many schools are offering Japanese and Chinese
courses.  She stated that 24 schools in B.C. offer Japanese.  Some
School Districts, including Richmond, Vancouver and New Westminster,
offer Japanese in Grade 9, and 944 students are enrolled in Japanese
11.  Six schools offer Japanese 12 to 84 students. 9438.

Business arising from the Minutes
(iii) Language requirements - Mandarin Chinese 11 and 12 and Japanese 11
and 12 (continued)
Fifteen schools in the province offer Chinese, at which, 292
students are taking Chinese 11 and 68 are enrolled in Chinese 12.
Dr. Elder also noted that Chinese is being offered at two or three
schools in Grades 8 and 9.
Chairman's remarks and related questions
Dr. Strangway reminded Senate that some months ago, a Task Force on
Off-Campus Degree Completion had been established with Dean J. F. Richards
as chairman. Dr. Strangway asked Dean Richards to comment on the activities
of the Task Force.
Dean Richards reminded Senate that the membership of the Task Force
consisted of:
Dr. M. D. Low, Coordinator, Health Sciences
Dr. A. J. McClean, Associate Vice President, Academic
Dean A. Meisen, Faculty of Applied Science
Dean Nancy M. Sheehan, Faculty of Education
Dean R. M. Will, Faculty of Arts
Dean Richards explained that the mandate of the Task Force, in
cooperation with other post-secondary institutions in the province, was to
identify alternatives for UBC's participation in the provision of degree
completion opportunities. He stated that some members of the Task Force had
visited two colleges in the province, Cariboo and Okanagan, in an effort to
find out the areas of interest of the colleges as far as degree completion
programs are concerned, and also to get a sense of the demand for that kind
of activity in the region. 9439.
January 18, 1989
Chairman's remarks and related questions (continued)
Dean Richards stated that the Task Force had also spent a good deal of
time monitoring the activities of the Provincial Access committee and its
various regional activities. He reminded Senate that the Access Committee
had produced a comprehensive report entitled "Access to Advanced Education
and Job Training in British Columbia", which had been widely distributed.
Members of the Task Force had participated in discussions of that report
with representatives of the Ministry and the Provincial Access Committee.
That report recommended quite strongly that cooperative university and
college ventures be undertaken in order to provide upper level university
courses and degree programs in the college regions outside the lower
mainland. In response to that recommendation, and the implications it has
for UBC now that the individual colleges have begun to express their
interest in collaborating with UBC, the Task Force has been trying to
develop a set of principles to use as a basis to guide discussions with the
colleges. Dean Richards said he would keep Senate informed of the progress
of the Task Force in this regard, and should those discussions get to the
point of suggesting that there is a basis for either course or program
development, Senate will be involved in related academic decisions.
Mr. Haji asked the President if he could comment on the petition signed
by 5,000 students in opposition to the proposed 10% tuition fee increase,
and on the rally attended by approximately 1,000 students.
President Strangway said that it was regrettable that fees had to be
increased. The Board of Governors faced the problem of how much budget
cutting it could do and how it could increase the revenue. Last July, the
Board had approved, in principle, a budget cut and a tuition increase in
order to achieve a balanced budget. 9440.
January 18, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Agenda Committee
Proposal to amend the Rules and Procedures of the Senate
Dean Webber, chairman of the Committee, explained to Senate that the
Agenda committee had noted that, from time to time, items from the
Faculties came directly to Senate. Since there was no provision in the
Rules and Procedures of Senate for motions to originate from Faculties,
the Agenda Committee proposed the following amendment to Section 3.7,
Motions, of the Rules and Procedures:
Amend 3.7.1 by adding the underlined words:
Motions may originate from a committee presenting a report; from a
Committee advising Senate in advance of its intention to bring forth
motions at the next regular meeting of senate (Dec. 15, 1983,
p.8106) ; from a Faculty, if the Agenda committee considers that the
matter does not need to be referred to a Senate Committee; from a
member presenting a notice of motion to be presented at the next
regular meeting of Senate (Dec. 12, 1984, p.8295); or from the floor
of Senate, to be considered immediately in accordance with Section
3.5.4. (Jan. 16, 1985, p.8307)
Dean Webber  )  That the proposal to amend section 3.7.1
Dean Suedfeld ) of the Rules and Procedures of Senate be
approved.

Under Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music - substitute the following
paragraph:
"The School of Music offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in music
designed for students interested in studying music as one of the
liberal arts. The degree is also an alternative to the Bachelor of
Music degree in Music Theory and Music History and Literature for
students interested in graduate work in those fields or in
ethnomusicology. (Students wishing to become professional
performers, composers, or teachers should, if qualified, consider the
appropriate Major in the B.Mus. program)."
Add the following paragraph on Non-Music Electives:
"The non-Music elective requirements in each of the Majors within the
B.Mus. degree must be satisfied by taking courses, other than Music
courses, available for credit in the Bachelor of Arts degree, that
is, all courses in the Faculties of Arts (other than Music courses)
and Science and those listed under Courses in Other Faculties or
Degree Programs in the Faculty of Arts section of the Calendar."
Faculty of Applied Science
The Committee recommended approval of proposed revisions to the Third
and  Fourth  Year  Electrical  Engineering  programs,  the  Computer
Engineering Option and the Honours Mathematics Option programs.  Dr.
Thompson reminded Senate that these proposals had been withheld at the
May meeting of Senate.  The Committee had expressed concern at the lack
of thermodynamic content in the Electrical Engineering program.  The
Faculty of Applied Science had agreed to reconsider the proposals and to
discuss the matter further with the Committee.  After reconsidering the
proposals, however, the Faculty of Applied Science reported that they
did not wish to make any changes.
Dr. Thompson noted that the change in number for ELEC 368 should read
472 not 468. 9442.

Faculty of Applied Science  (continued)
The Committee recommended approval of further items from the Faculty
of Applied Science, with the exception of the deletion of MECH 290 which
is being withheld pending the submission of a replacement for this
course.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Graduate Studies, with the exception of the proposed Calendar
entry for the Biology Graduate Program, and subject to the description
of Neuroscience 501 being changed to read: "continuation of
Neurosciences 500 with emphasis on the integrative functions of the
brain, behaviour, and selected neural disorders. Permission of
Neuroscience chairman is required. (Normally to be taken in conjunction
with Neuroscience 500.)"
Dr. Thompson noted that the committee had recommended that approval
of the proposed Calendar entry for the clinical Engineering program be
withheld. He informed Senate that the proposal had been withheld due to
lack of documentation and also because the material had not been through
the Faculties of Applied Science and Medicine. Subsequent to the
preparation of the report, documentation was forwarded to the Committee
and the Faculties of Applied Science and Medicine were notified of the
changes,  which  are  relatively  minor.   The  Committee  therefore
recommended approval. 9443.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum committee
Faculty of Graduate Studies  (continued)
Dr. Thompson drew Senate's attention to proposed changes to the
program description under "creative Writing - M.F.A. degree". A revised
Calendar entry was circulated at the meeting in which it was proposed
that the titles of the M.F.A. in Creative Writing/Theatre for advanced
stage-playwrights and the M.F.A. in Creative Writing/Film Studies for
screenwriters, be changed to the M.F.A. in Stage-Playwriting and the
M.F.A. in Screen-Playwriting, respectively. The committee recommended
approval of this revision.
Faculty of Medicine
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Medicine.
Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences

Reports of Committees of Senate  (continued)
Committee on Student Awards
In presenting the list of awards, Dr. Cook drew attention to the
international Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union Scholarship which
had been withheld at the previous meeting pending clarification. The
question raised by Senate was "is UBC in the business of administering
funds for students that may be enrolled at other universities?". Dr. Cook
stated that, in essence, the answer is no, but there are a number of cases
where the University, in its goodwill to a variety of associations that
have made awards available to our students, will do this. Students must
apply for these awards, and the awards are made by the Director of Awards
whether a student is attending UBC or one of the other institutions.
Dr. Cook drew attention to the Wesbrook Scholars award, and noted that a
number of major universities in the world have a specific honorary
designation for exceptional undergraduate scholars. Winners will receive
a certificate as a memento, and a designation will appear on the student's
transcript.
Dr. Cook      )  That the new awards (listed in Appendix 'A')
Mr. McMillan  ) be accepted subject to the approval of the
Board of Governors and that letters of
thanks be sent to the donors.
A query was raised concerning the use of the words "or professional
program" in the Wesbrook Scholars award. It was agreed that it be left to
the Committee to make any necessary editorial changes.
in response to a query as to how the international Longshoremen's and
Warehousemen's Union Scholarship will be administered, Mr. Hender stated

from students at other institutions they obviously receive the information
concerning such awards. The students apply to UBC and indicate on the
application if they are attending another post-secondary institution.
The motion was put and carried.
Report of the Committee on Student Awards
in presenting the following report, Dr. Cook expressed thanks and
appreciation to Mr. Byron Hender, Director of Awards and Financial Aid,
for his assistance in providing information to the committee.
"Since April 1986, the date of our last report, the Committee has met
nineteen times, recommended acceptance of 242 new awards with a total
annual value approaching $340,000 and considered a wide range of issues
related to the scholarship and award policies and practices of the
University. The issues included:
1. The Mission Statement
The Committee responded to the first draft of the Mission Statement and
agreed with its general direction. The Committee suggested entrance
exams be established. These exams would enable the University to
identify scholarship candidates at an early date. The Committee also
encouraged the creation of more scholarships for top students entering
UBC from the colleges and other universities, and agreed that increased
efforts should be made to attract outstanding Canadian and international
undergraduate students.
2. Issues of Eligibility
(a) Scholarships for Part-Time Students - The University has provided
$25,000, so that scholarships can be awarded to outstanding
undergraduates carrying between 80 and 90 percent of a full program
load. The awards will be prorated to be consistent with the University
Scholarship Program.
(b) Scholarships for Undergraduate Exchange Students - The Committee
reconfirmed that visiting students do not qualify for UBC scholarships.
UBC students participating in formal exchange programs and attending
other institutions will retain their scholarship eligibility.
(c) Scholarships for Diploma students - Students in diploma programs
continue to qualify for participation in the University Scholarship
Program on the same basis as students in undergraduate and professional
degree programs. 9446.
January 18, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Report of the Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
(d) Eligibility Requirements for Academic Awards - Submissions from the
School of Music and the Department of Athletic and Sport Services were
reviewed. The Committee re-affirmed existing Senate policy that UBC
scholarships are intended to recognize academic excellence. For
academic awards the existing calendar statement which appears in the
Calendar (regulation 2, page 27) should be amended to read:
"An award designated as a scholarship will normally be made only to a
student standing in the top 10% of his/her year and Faculty, or with
an average of 75% or higher. Prizes or other academic awards that
are based on performance in a specific course require only that the
student stand in the top 10% of students registered in the course, or
obtain an average of 75% or higher for the course in question."
3. Monitoring of Academic Performance
The Committee continued to monitor the academic performance of
undergraduate bursary holders, and holders of major entrance
scholarships. In the 1987/88 Winter Session 1,045 undergraduates held
bursaries totalling over $1.2 million. Better than 90% of the award
winners satisfactorily completed 9 units or more of course work. The
renewal rate for major entrance scholarships in 1988/89 is 87%. (In the
current academic session, 51 students hold major entrance scholarships
totalling $144,000.)
4. Student Appeals
The Committee considered appeals from five students. The appeals
involved unit load requirements, and in all cases the Committee's
decision favoured the student.
5. Policies and practices
The Committee examined a number of issues relating to the administrative
arrangements for awards. It has noted the recent increase in the number
of programs which permit students to register on a term by term basis.
Many administrative procedures including those affecting award
application deadlines and adjudication were established on the
assumption of one eight-month winter session, changes will be necessary
to ensure that students in one term courses are not disadvantaged.
The Committee recognizes that the opportunity to establish student
awards attracts donors to the University. There are advantages for both
donor and the University in the establishment of endowed awards, as
opposed to awards which are funded by the donor on an annual basis. The
donor of an endowed award is assured of ongoing recognition while the
University benefits administratively. The Committee also believes that
the University should establish scholarship pools for Faculties and
Schools, and that donors should be encouraged to donate to these pools.
Finally, the Committee favours reviewing the requirements for "named"
awards and has devoted considerable attention to this matter; it remains 9447.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Report of the Committee on Student Awards
5. Policies and Practices  (continued)
unsolved. Specific recommendations relating to endowed awards and the
more general issue of the length of award descriptions are outlined below.
6. Wesbrook Scholars
The Committee initiated discussions and is recommending the establishment
of an annual honorary designation "Wesbrook Scholar" for fifteen to
twenty outstanding undergraduates. The winners will be presented with a
certificate, a memento, and the designation will appear on the student's
permanent record. It is anticipated that the first winners will be
recognized before the end of the current session.
Recommendations
(a) Scholarship Eligibility
that Senate approve the awarding of scholarships to outstanding
undergraduate part-time students who carry between 80% and 90% of a
full program load,  and
that the award sums be prorated to maintain consistency with the
University Scholarship program.
(b) Calendar Statement
that regulation 2 on page 27 of the Calendar be amended to read:
An award designated as a scholarship will normally be made only to a
student standing in the top 10% of his/her year and Faculty, or with
an average of 75% or higher. Prizes or other academic awards which
are based on performance in a specific course require only that the
student stand in the top 10% of students registered in the course, or
obtain an average of 75% or higher for the course in question.
(The existing regulation reads as follows: An award designated as a
medal, scholarship or prize will normally be made only to students
whose standing is in the top 10% of their class or with an average of
75% or higher.)
(c) Endowment Funds for Student Awards
that Senate endorse the Committee's recommendation that
(i) where possible, awards should be endowed, and
(ii) donors be encouraged to allocate their donations to one of the
major award endowment pools.
(d) Award Descriptions
that Senate approve the limiting of award descriptions published in
the Awards calendar to one hundred words in length." 9448.

long-time employee of the University. Dr. Cook stated that Miss Magnusson
would be greatly missed by the staff in the Awards Office, and by members
of the Committee.

for a higher standing if recommended by the department and approved by
the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. In a course that is
repeated, both marks will appear on the transcript. The higher mark
will be used to determine promotion in a program and in any decision to

Faculty of Arts until the requirement has been satisfied.
Students should be aware that if they have not passed the ECT and
are preparing to register in a program which includes units beyond
their 45th, they will be limited in their registration to that
number of units which brings their total to 45. Students who
anticipate difficulty passing the Test are advised to enrol in a

for a broad range of societal purposes including scholarly research. As
such, archives are an important agency of many modern administrations
(governments,  business,  churches,  universities,  etc.)  and  vital
institutions in the preservation of the Canadian documentary heritage.
The role of archivists is to plan and implement programs to appraise,
acquire, preserve, and make available records of enduring value to
society.
Archivists'  work  increasingly  involves  them  in  promoting  and
administering systematic management of records throughout their life
cycle, in acquisition of a broad range of materials of all media, in a
complex of legal and regulatory concerns,  and in application of
automation to problems of retrieving information from archives.  Thus,
while maintaining close links with the study of history, professional
archival studies also have interdisciplinary links with administrative
studies, legal studies, media and communication studies, and library and
information studies."

Creative Writing
M.F.A. degree - change calendar entry to read:
The Department offers a two-year course of resident study leading to the
Master of Fine Arts degree. Canadidates may choose to take the M.F.A.
degree in Creative Writing, or the M.F.A. degree in Stage- or
Screen-Playwriting offered in conjunction with the Theatre Department.
Creative Writing
The program leading to the M.F.A. in Creative Writing is based on the
premise that capable student authors can benefit from judicious
criticism and the requirement to produce work regularly and to meet
deadlines. Workshops, conferences and tutorials are designed to focus
attention on the student's poetry, fiction, drama, imaginative
non-fiction, the writing of children's literature, and literary
translation. Students are expected to read various books and journals
for technical improvement in their own writing.
The Department publishes Prism international; graduate students
participate in the editing and production of the magazine. 9480.

M.F.A. degree - change Calendar entry to read:
Creative Writing  (continued)
During the two years of the Creative Writing program, a minimum of 18
units of work must be completed, including a thesis.  (A reduction of
the second-year residency requirement will be considered in exceptional
circumstances.)  The Creative Writing program consists of work in three
genres,  chosen  in consultation with the Departmental adviser, as
described in the Departmental brochure.
In the second year, students will complete a 3-unit thesis consisting of
a full-length work in the area(s) of their special interest.  The thesis
may be a substantial revision and extension of work done during the
first year.  A work of translation may be used to fulfil the thesis
requirement by students  with  the  required ability and linguistic
knowledge.  (M.A. candidates in Comparative Literature who have their
adviser's permission and are accepted by the instructor of the course in
translation may include a translation in partial satisfaction of their
thesis requirements.)
Students may be required to take advanced creative writing undergraduate
courses and tutorials as part of their programs.
Stage- and Screen-Playwriting
The creative Writing Department and the Theatre Department offer jointly
two programs leading to the M.F.A. degree, one in Stage-Playwriting and
the other in Screen-Playwriting. Applicants must be accepted by both
Departments.     For admission requirements,  see below.
Students are required to take appropriate coursework in the Departments
of Creative Writing and Theatre as described in their respective
brochures. They must also be involved in the staging or production of
some of their own work and, in fulfilment of the 3-unit thesis
requirement, write the equivalent of a full-length stageplay or TV or
film script acceptable to both Departments. The thesis requirement must
be met in the second year and may be a substantial revision and
extension of work done during the  first year.
Admission
Applications   may  be   submitted   throughout   the   year   but   the   deadline   is
December  lst.
Candidates for the Creative Writing program should submit 75 to 100
pages of work in two or more of the genres listed in the brochure,
specifying which is their major area of interest.  Candidates who intend
to focus on translation should submit 75 to 100 pages consisting of
translated material in any of the above genres and a sample of their own
original creative writing.
Admission   to   the  Stage- and  Screen-Playwriting  programs   is   on   the basis
of    a    script    submission    of    75    to    100    pages,    including   some   work    in
another     genre,     and     also     relevant     coursework     in     Theatre     at     the
undergraduate level  or equivalent.
The   Departmental   brochure   is   available   on   request   to   the   Department  of
Creative Writing. 9481.
