Mr. Savage       meeting of Senate for the Session 1985-86,
having been circulated, be taken as read
and adopted.

Business arising from the minutes
Membership and  Officers of  Senate   (p.8666,   April  23,   1986 minutes)
Dean   Webber,   Chairman   of   the   Senate   Agenda   Committee,   reminded   Senate
that   item   2.3   of   the   report   of   the  ad  hoc  Conmittee  on  Senate  Procedures,
adopted   at   the   April   23,   1986   meeting,   stated   that   Senate   shall   elect   a
Vice   Chairman  at   least   annually,   who   shall   chair   meetings   in   the  absence
of   the  president;     but   in  no   case   shall   a   vice  chairman   serve  more   than
two consecutive terms.
Dean Webber stated that the Agenda Committee had noted that during the
planned absence of the President the Vice-President Academic is the Acting
President, in which case he presumably takes on the powers and functions
of the President. The only case, therefore, where the issue of a
vice-chairman would arise is the case of an unplanned absence of the
President. The Agenda Committee recommended that the present practice,
whereby the Vice-President Academic serves as Chairman of Senate in the
absence of the President,  should continue.
Dean Webber )     In  the  absence  of  the President,
Dr.   Goldberg       )     the Vice-President  Academic  should
serve  as Chairman of Senate.
Dr.   Tennant  pointed out  that   if  the  procedures  adopted  by  Senate were to
be  followed Senate should  elect a vice Chairman.
The motion was put and  carried. 8762.

Chairman's  remarks
Dr. Strangway reported that the financial statements showed the books
balanced at year end although an operating fund deficit was covered by an
interfund transfer from one of the endowment funds. He stated that the
operating budget proposals for 1987/88 through the funds for excellence
program had been prepared and submitted together with operating budget
proposals. The three university Presidents once again were unanimous in
their agreement on priorities for provincial funding as they had been for
the  1986/87   fiscal  year.
The Chairman reminded Senate that the deadline for nominations for
Honorary Degrees is September 15 and requested that reasons for the
nomination  be  incorporated,   along with  curricula vitae. 8764.
September  10,   1986
Chairman's  remarks     (continued)
Dr. Strangway informed Senate that he had written to all college heads
concerning the changes made to enrolment limitations. He stated that the
President's Task Force on Liaison, Recruiting and Admissions would be
meeting shortly and would address issues of concern to the colleges. in
addition, he was exploring the possibility of a meeting with college and
institute Presidents about   issues  of  common concern.
In response to a query regarding the position of Senior Fellow offered
to Dr. Norman Spector the Chairman confirmed that the offer had not been
withdrawn.
In reply to a further query concerning his mission statement for the
University, the Chairman assured Senate that he had received many helpful
suggestions and that a draft for discussion would be prepared in the near
future.
Financial  Statements
Copies of the Financial Statements for the year ended March 31, 1986 had
been submitted to Senate as required under section 31(2) of the University

then highlighted  some   sections  of  the  report for  the  information  of  Senate.
In response to a query concerning Athletics and Sports Services in
Statement 6, Mr. Gellatly undertook to provide information in time for the
next meeting of Senate regarding an earlier proposal to establish a residual
account  for  facilities development. 8765.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Medicine - admission to the M.D. program
Dr. Finnegan, Chairman of the Committee, stated that the Admissions
Committee recommended approval of a proposal by the Faculty of Medicine
that applications from individuals already holding an M.D. degree or its
equivalent will not normally be considered.
It was stated in the material circulated that a large number of
individuals in Canada and abroad hold medical degrees from a variety of
foreign medical schools. These individuals have considerable
difficulty in meeting the requirements for licensure to practice
medicine in Canada. A number have approached the Faculty of Medicine
with the intention of applying to do a second M.D. degree as a possible
route to practice. In the view of the Faculty, admission of such
individuals to an enrolment-limited program would of necessity exclude
other well qualified applicants who have not had an opportunity to
obtain a medical degree. The Faculty therefore believed that the
University should establish an explicit policy that an individual
already holding an M.D. degree will not be considered for admission.
Dr. Finnegan  ) That applications from individuals
Dean Webber   )  already holding an M.D. degree or its
equivalent will not normally be considered.

Liaison with other Post  Secondary  Institutions
Response  to motion by Mr.   Pearce     (pp.8704-5)
Dr. Dennison, Chairman of the Committee, informed Senate that the
Conmittee had considered the following motion by Mr. Pearce which Senate
had  approved  at  its May meeting: 8766.
September 10, 1986
Reports of Committees of Senate
Liaison with other Post Secondary Institutions (continued)
Response to motion by Mr. Pearce  (pp.8704-5)
"Whereas The University of British Columbia is facing reductions in
budgets which result in limits being set for transfers from post
secondary institutions, and
Whereas it is imperative that post secondary institutions be properly
and adequately informed of these limitations in order to counsel
their students,
Be it therefore resolved that the Senate Standing Conmittee on
Liaison with Post Secondary Institutions be asked to ensure that this
dialogue take place."
Dr. Dennison stated that in its discussions the Conmittee noted that
an Office of School and College Liaison had been created which was now
in the process of getting staff, space and facilities.  The Committee
felt that this, together with the establishment of the President's Task
Force on Liaison Recruiting and Admissions, was a very useful step.
With respect to the task force and the Office of School and College
Liaison, the Committee felt that presumably these two organizations were
set  up  to meet  some  of  the  concerns  in Mr.  Pearce's motion.
Consequently the Committee felt that it would continue to refer matters
of liaison to appropriate offices and committees in order to ensure that
action will be taken.
In response to a query concerning the Office of School and College
Liaison, Dr. Birch stated that the Office of School and College Liaison
was established last spring not to do all of the activity itself but to
ensure that the University had a somewhat more coordinated approach to
liaison with schools and colleges and to ensure that people speaking for
the University were genuinely carrying the message of the University.
It was also hoped that the office could encourage and find the
appropriate policy framework for the participation of students, alumni, 8767.
September 10,   1986
Reports  of Committees  of Senate
Liaison with other Post Secondary Institutions  (continued)
Response to motion by Mr.  Pearce     (pp.8704-5)
faculty and staff in liaison with colleges. He stated that Miss Mary
Stott had been appointed as the Director of the Office of School and
College Liaison, and that Miss Stott, as an MBA student at Queen's
University, had been engaged to do a report on the practices of six
Canadian universities in the field of liaison. He further stated that
Miss Stott had recommended a structure and set of procedures for
carrying out the mandate of that office and it was hoped that a report
on a coherent program of liaison with schools and colleges could be
presented  to  Senate   in   the  near   future.
Report  of  the Committee
Dr.   Dennison   presented   the   following   report   of   the   Committee,    for
information:
"Background - Although this committee has been in existence for
several years, it has held very few meetings. While the terms of
reference are quite general, i.e. To provide liaison between this
University and other Post Secondary Institutions in the Province...
there seem to have been no specific issues which the committee has
seen as being relevant.
In October, 1985, the conmittee met, elected a chairman, and entered
into discussion as  to  how it might address  its  terms  of  reference.
It was agreed that the committee should take a proactive stance and
invite other institutions to suggest ways in which the Senate might
be  helpful.
By January, 1986, responses had been received from 14 institutions.
A variety of matters were raised and the comments which follow
reflect  some  of  the concerns.
Matters of  concern raised by other Post  Secondary Institutions
1. Several colleges asked for consideration of block transfer of
credit arrangements, rather than course by course credit. This
policy is common  in many U.S.   states.
Action:     This  matter   has   been   referred   to   the   Deans   of   Arts   and
Science  for their consideration. 8768.
September  10,   1986
Reports of Committees of Senate
Liaison with other  Post Secondary  Institutions
Report of the Committee   (continued)
2. Two colleges expressed concern over the amount of information
required in negotiating courses for transfer credit, e.g. faculty
credentials  and  library holdings.
Action: Chairman requested correspondents to be more specific as
to the nature of the issue. It was also felt that the
articulation committees might address this concern.
3. There was some reference to the perceived limitation upon
part-time study opportunities available at U.B.C. Comment was
made regarding both the number of courses offered in the late
afternoon and evenings, and the number of Faculties which provide
for part-time  study.
4. Three colleges noted the problem of admission to U.B.C. by
international (VISA) students who have enrolled in and earned
credit   from colleges.
Action: The Conmittee recommends that this matter be referred to
the President's  Task  Force on Liaison,  Recruiting and Admissions.
5. One college expressed concern over U.B.C. reluctance to recognize
the International Baccalaureate as a basis for advanced standing
on  admission.
Action: The Committee recommends that this matter, and the
related issue of advanced placement in general, be referred to
the President's Task  Force on Liaison,  Recruiting and  Admissions.
6. Two colleges expressed the view that U.B.C. might take further
steps to assist in the ongoing professional development of
faculty in the academic programs in the colleges. Suggestions
included summer workshops to upgrade knowledge and techniques in
specific disciplines and extended exchange opportunities between
college  and university teachers.
Action: The Committee noted that a great deal of informal
activity in this area is currently underway. Further specific
suggestions might come from the colleges, to which the
appropriate university department  could  respond.
7. Reference was made to the lack of overall coordination of post
secondary education in British Columbia. It was felt that the
new ministry might take appropriate action to improve the
situation.
The Conmittee intends to continue its dialogue with other post
secondary institutions, including the universities, as a means of
realizing its terms of reference. 8769.
September  10,   1986
Reports of Committees of Senate
Liaison with other  Post Secondary Institutions
Report  of  the Committee   (continued)
Background   information
Extrasessional courses: The current (1986-87) winter session
Calendar supplement lists undergraduate and graduate courses
available after 4.30 p.m. The majority are in Education and Arts,
offering approximately 170 and 100 courses respectively. Science
offers eleven courses. Part-time study opportunities at the
undergraduate level are very limited  in most professional  Faculties.
Articulation Committees: Since the abolition of the Academic Council
in 1983, responsibility for coordinating the articulation committees
in various academic disciplines rests with the Provincial Post
Secondary Coordinating Committee, under the chairmanship of Dr. Grant
Fisher,  Associate Deputy Minister.
The twenty or more articulation committees meet at least once a
year. The committees include representatives from all colleges and
universities."
In   the   discussion   that   followed   the   Dean   of   Applied   Science   stated
that     there     was     not     much     demand     for     part-time     studies     at     the
undergraduate   level   but   at   the   graduate   level   the    Faculty   provided   a
substantial   number   of   courses   in   the   late   afternoon   and   early   morning
for part-time  graduate students.
The Dean of the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
stated that although the Faculty was unable to offer part-time courses
at the undergraduate level it did offer the M.B.A. program on a
part-time basis  in the evenings.
In    response    to   a query   as    to   how   the    President's    Task    Force   on
Liaison,     Recruiting and    Admissions    would    overlap    with    the    Senate
Admissions   Conmittee, the   President   stated   that   any   recommendations   by
the    Task    Force   that affected   Senate   would   be   referred   to   the   Senate
Admissions Committee. 8770.
September  10,   1986
Reports of Committees of Senate
Library Committee
Collections  Funding  for  1986-87
Dr. Wisenthal, Chairman of the Committee, informed Senate that the
Library's collections budget has been increased by a total of $562,000
for the current fiscal year. He stated that $339,000 of this is from
the Fund for Excellence in Education (under the "Non-wage Inflation
Increases" category), and $223,000 from salary savings within the
Library.
Conmittee on  Student  Awards
Dr. Williams       )    That the new awards   (listed in  the Appendix)
Dr.   Cook )    be accepted subject  to the  approval  of the
Board of  Governors and  that  letters of
thanks be sent to the donors.
Attention was drawn to the Casey O'Neill & Bence Prize in Business
Associations II. It was stated in the description that the prize would be
awarded to a second year law student who had achieved the highest standing
in Law 326. It was pointed out that it was unlikely that a second year
law student would have the prerequisites to be able to take Law 326. It
was agreed that approval of this award be withheld subject to
clarification.
The motion was put and  carried
Centre  for Continuing Education

A. The Diploma Program in Administration for Engineers is offered
jointly by the Faculty of Applied Science and the Centre for
Continuing Education.
1. There were six new admissions   into the program this year.
2. Total   enrolment   in   the   program   since   its   inception   in   1968   now
stands  at  1,136 with a total of  92 graduates  to date.
3. There   were   349   registrants   for   the   34   courses   offered   on-campus
and  in  the Greater Vancouver area.
4. There     were      10      registrants      for      the      one      courses      offered
province-wide.
B. A total of 41 professional foresters were admitted to the parallel
Diploma Program in Administration for Foresters, offered by the
Faculty of Forestry and managed by Engineering Programs, with the
first  two graduating  in  Spring   1982.
C. Although not a "Diploma" program per se, our graduate-level
"CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL" program for Professional Engineers and
Registered Architects has now qualified a total of 69 individuals to
certify building plans in the City of Vancouver as meeting the
requirements  of  the  National  Building  Code of  Canada.
Certificate  in Site Planning
The third year of the Certificate in Site Planning program had ten
students registered in year two. Year one was cancelled for 1985-1986
due to insufficient  registration.
Five of the students in year two completed all the requirements for the
Certificate by the end  of April  1986.
In the 1986-87 Academic Year, there will be no second year class. Ten
applications have been  received  for  the first year program."
Guided   Independent  Study
Criminology Certificate Program
The   following   report  on  the  Criminology Certificate Program administered
through Guided  independent  Study had been circulated  for  information. 8772.
September 10, 1986
Guided Independent Study
Criminology Certificate Program (cont inued )
"The Criminology Certificate Program was established by Senate in 1974
to enable individuals working in corrections, law enforcement and
related areas to obtain a broad theoretical foundation in criminology by
cor respondence.
During the late 70's an increasing number of applications were received
from individuals hoping to obtain employment in these fields. Since
this was not the intent of the program, policy changes were instituted
in 1980 in order to restrict admission. At that time, four students had
been awarded the Certificate and many more had become inactive.
On March 17, 1982, Senate approved closure of the program to new
students. Those already admitted to the program at that time were
allowed until June 30, 1986 to complete qualifications for the
Certificate.
In the spring of 1982 all students who could be reached were advised of
the new regulations. Fifteen students chose to remain in the program
and three of these have since completed their qualifications; two in
1983 and one in 1986. All remaining students have been advised that the
option to complete the program and qualify for the Certificate has
expired. These students have also been advised that, should they apply
for admission to another program of study, credit may be granted for
courses satisfactorily completed, if they are suitable to the program
selected."
Report of the Registrar on Spring Session Enrolment 1986
The report of the Registrar on Spring Session Enrolment for 1986 was
received for information.
Report of the Registrar on Summer Session Enrolment 1986
The report of the Registrar on Summer Session Enrolment for 1986 was
received for information.
Dr. Watt, Director of Extra Sessional Studies, was invited to respond to
a query concerning the decline in Summer Session enrolment. Dr. Watt stated
that there were not as many teachers enrolling in Summer Session and it
appeared that more part-time and regular students were taking advantage of
the Spring Session to make up program deficiencies. He further stated that
there had been a significant reduction in funding.  In 1983, 333 sections 8773.
September  10,   1986
Report of the Registrar on Summer Session Enrolment 1986     (continued)
were offered in Summer Session and in 1986, only 240 sections were offered
which obviously would account for some of the decrease. Another cause was
the major   increase  in  fees  over  the past  few years.
In   response   to  a   further   query,   Dr.   Watt   stated  that   approximately  33%
of students  in  Spring and  Summer  Session were teachers.
Report  from St.   Mark's  College
The   annual   report  to  Senate   from St.   Mark's   College   had been  circulated
for information.

Winter  Session Enrolment
In    response    to    a    query    the    Registrar    reported    that    although late
registration    was    still    continuing,    preliminary    figures    indicated that
there    would    be    no    significant    increase    in    the    total    enrolment. The
preliminary enrolment  figure was approximately 22,330.
The Registrar informed Senate that although enrolment limitations had
been imposed on First Year Arts, Second Year Arts, Third Year Arts and
First Year Science, it had only been necessary to deny otherwise qualified
students to First Year Arts. All transfer students who met the minimum
academic requirements had been admitted to Second and Third Year Arts and
all applicants with the minimum academic requirements had been
accommodated  in   First  Year   Science. 8774.

The following memorial statements had been prepared in accordance with
the custom of Senate in recognition by the University and Senate of the
late William Mawhinney Keenlyside and  the late J.  Ranton Mcintosh.
MEMORIAL MINUTE
WILLIAM MAWHINNEY KEENLYSIDE (1914-1986)
William Keenlyside passed away on August 1, 1986. With his death the
University has lost one of its most loyal and most energetic alumni. Dr.
Keenlyside served as a convocation member of Senate for three terms
between 1975 and 1984. His involvement was unusually extensive and, among
his numerous responsibilities, he gave wise counsel to the Budget
Conmittee during one of its most difficult periods.
Dr. Keenlyside was born in Vancouver in 1914. He graduated from U.B.C.
with first class honours in history and latin in 1934, and later earned
his Ph.D. from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1938.
Among his many business activities, Bill Keenlyside spent 33 years with
Western Canada Steel Limited, retiring as President in 1975.
It was in his service to the community that Dr. Keenlyside's commitment
was best reflected. He was a Director of United Way, President of point
Grey Golf club, President of the Rotary Club of Vancouver, and of Sunny
Hill Hospital, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, and Director
of the Opportunity Workshop for the Handicapped.
Bill Keenlyside was a man of many interests and many talents. His life
was one of service - to his business associates, to his friends and to the
less fortunate members of society, and to the University which he loved.
He represented all the best qualities of an educated person and a
responsible citizen.
To his wife Georganne and to his three children, the Senate of The
University of British Columbia extends its deepest sympathy.
Dr. Dennison  )  That the memorial statement for
Dr. Wisenthal  )  William Mawhinney Keenlyside be

MEMORIAL  MINUTE
JOHN RANTON McINTOSH   (1910-1986)
J. Ranton Mcintosh, an educator of international stature and a prominent
figure in the history of teacher education in British Columbia, passed
away in May 19 86.
Dr. Mcintosh was born in Morden, Manitoba in 1910 and earned his first
degrees at the University of Saskatchewan. In 1941 he received his Doctor
of Philosophy degree from Columbia University, at that time the
predominant institution in North America in the study of educational
theory.
After service with the Royal Canadian Air Force, during which he headed
