having been circulated, be taken as read
and adopted.
Carried
Business arising from the Minutes
Dr. Hickling, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appeals on Academic
Standing, drew attention to page 9292 of the May minutes and his proposal
concerning policies, practices and procedures to deal with students who fall
ill. He asked if the Committee of Deans had completed their task and if
recommendations would be brought forward for discussion at the October
meeting. 9329.
September 14, 1988
Business arising from the Minutes (continued)
Dean Webber stated that the matter had been considered several times by
the Committee of Deans since the last meeting of Senate. He said that it
had proven a rather difficult document to draft and that whilst he could not
guarantee it, he hoped that it would be available for the next meeting of
Senate.
Correspondence
The Secretary read to Senate a letter from The Right Honourable John N.
Turner expressing appreciation for the tribute paid to his late mother
Phyllis Gregory Ross.
Chairman's remarks and related questions
In the absence of President Strangway, Vice-President Birch presented
the Chairman's remarks. He informed Senate that there was nothing further
to report on the status of the operating grant than had been reported to
Senate in the spring. He stated that a number of issues remain unresolved,
specifically the missing amount of #2.1 million for salary increases. He
explained that there was an understanding between the President and the
Minister with respect to the annualization of salary increases last year.
He said this was a very important item since it is a recurring grant and
that it remained to be seen whether, before the end of the fiscal year,
those funds will come through.
Vice-President Birch noted that a million dollars a year had been
committed to Simon Fraser University's downtown centre, and that this amount
had been deducted from the operating grant for all three universities. 9330.
September 14, 1988
Chairman's remarks and related questions (continued)
Vice-President Birch referred to the fund-raising campaign and the
province's commitment to a matching funds program. He stated that the
university's target had not yet been established, and that although the
official "kick-off" date had not yet arrived the response from the business
section across the country had been very positive. He paid tribute to the
efforts of President Strangway, Mr. Peter Ufford, the External Relations
Adviser, and especially to Mr. W. Robert Wyman, on being a most effective
chairman. He stated that with the $20 million already raised, he was
confident that the university would have no problem meeting its target.
Vice-President Birch reported on the status of the Mission Statement.
He stated that the President intended to draw out from the large planning
document a number of the major principles which could be clearly articulated
and brought to the Senate and the Board of Governors for focus, discussion,
consideration and approval. On behalf of the President, Vice-President
Birch expressed his appreciation for the input and the very wide range of
comments received at each stage during the preparation of the draft. The
President anticipated the establishment of several task forces to address
areas of concern and stated that the Task Force on Liaison, Recruiting and
Admissions would be reactivated.
Vice-President Birch referred to the matter of Advanced Placement and
International Baccalaureate, which had been brought to Senate by the Task
Force on Liaison, Recruiting and Admissions during the previous session. He
went on to inform Senate that 800 advanced placement examinations had been
written across Canada this year. He stated that the Kelowna School District
had had a great deal of success with students doing advanced placement
programs, in that Harvard were sending a recruiting team to interview
students at the four major high schools in Kelowna for admission next year. 9331.
September 14, 1988
Chairman's remarks and related questions (continued)
In conclusion, Vice-President Birch stated that the Deans and Department
Heads were being asked what they regarded as the potential for increase in
graduate enrolment, given appropriate funding and support. He explained
that the President's Office was in the process of preparing a supplementary
submission requesting additional funding of $35 million over the next five
years, aimed specifically at funding for graduate places.
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.

September 14, 1988
Financial Statements
Copies of the Financial Statements for the year ended March 31, 1988 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.
Dr. Elder requested that the 1989 statements include the cost of postage
as a direct result of the introduction of the telereg system.
Report of the Registrar on Registration
The Registrar commented briefly on the telereg system. He stated that
telereg had been very successful and that it had worked well for the
majority of students.
The preliminary enrolment figures, together with the Spring and Summer
enrolment figures, were circulated at the meeting. The Registrar noted that
the preliminary total enrolment figure of 25,210 listed in the material
circulated, had subsequently increased to 26,010, although he expected this
figure to change as a result of withdrawals.
The Registrar drew attention to the increasing enrolment pressure in
noting that two years ago the minimum high school grade point average to
enter first year Arts was 2.56, whereas last year it was 2.6 and this year
2.72. Similarly, in the Faculty of Science where the minimum g.p.a. of 2.5
had been in effect, this year no-one was admitted with a g.p.a. less than
2.6. 9333.
September 14, 1988
Report of the Registrar on Registration (continued)
In response to a query, the Registrar stated that if a Faculty chooses
to register more students than the number approved by Senate and the Board
of Governors, it would be at the discretion of the Faculty.
In response to a question as to what Senate means when it approves
enrolment restrictions, the Chairman stated that Senate and Board of
Governors documents would have to be reviewed in order to obtain that
information.
In response to questions by Mr. Pettingale, student senator, regarding
the telereg system, the Registrar stated that the payment of fees due date
was a legitimate issue for Senate and that there were pros and cons for
making the payment date just before the start of classes. On the question
of the de-registration of students for non-payment of laboratory fees, he
said he would be prepared to meet with any student to whom that had
happened. He said he was acutely aware of the problem of long-distance
charges and hoped that more lines would be available next year, and also
hoped that the system could be kept open longer. As far as the problems for
people calling from foreign countries was concerned, the Registrar stated
that those students should call the hot line. He agreed that a better job
could be done in this area as far as information and publicity are concerned.
The Registrar noted that of the 850 students de-registered, 590 had
re-registered. He confirmed that those de-registered students possibly did
not get any of their original course choices when they re-registered.
In the discussion that followed, Dean Will stated that because of
complications with the telereg system as far as the language reqirement was
concerned, the Faculty of Arts had to send out over 450 letters to students,
and he hoped that such problems would not recur next year. 9334.
September 14, 1988
Report of the Registrar on Registration (continued)
in response to a request by Mr. Haji, the Registrar stated that he was
sure a policy could be established so that students would not have to go
back and forth unnecessarily between a Faculty and the Registrar's Office in
order to register.
Senate Nominating Committee
In accordance with established procedures, the following vacancies on
the Nominating Committee were declared:
Dr. M. A. Goldberg - Faculty representative
Professor D. Pavlich - Faculty representative
Nominations were received for Dr. A. J. Elder and Dr. S. Katz.
The Chairman indicated that nominations would remain open until the
October 12, 1988 Senate meeting, and if necessary an election would be held.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Arts - Change in enrolment restrictions for Family and
Nutritional Sciences
The committee recommended approval of the following proposal which
had been circulated:
It was stated in the material circulated that the number of dietetics
undergraduates and qualifying students has grown in the last few years
so that the quality of the courses being offered was in jeopardy.
Furthermore, these programs are designed as professional preparation.
Certification normally requires an internship. Unfortunately, the
number of British Columbia students receiving academic preparation in
dietetics far outstrips the number of internships available to them.
Admission to the Dietetics program is limited and based on academic
standing and the completion of prerequisites. Primary consideration
will be given to candidates beginning either the first or second year of
University study. Admission to the Dietetics Qualification Study
program is also limited. It is based on academic standing and the
completion of appropriate prerequisites. All applicants seeking entry
into the Dietetics programs should make formal application to the
Registrar of the University for admission to the School of Family and 9335.
September 14, 1988
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Arts - Change in enrolment restrictions for Family and
Nutritional Sciences  (continued)
Nutritional Sciences, and at the same time write to the School for
supplementary admissions materials pertaining to the Dietetics
programs. All parts of the application, including the submission of
transcripts, must be completed and submitted as early as possible in the
year, and not later than June 30th."
Faculty of Medicine - change in entrance requirements
The committee recommended approval of the following:
"Entrance Requirements: change paragraph 2, item (2) (1988/89
Calendar) to read: (2) Mathematics 100 and 101 OR Mathematics 100
and Statistics 105."
It was stated in the material circulated that the change was
proposed, in consultation with the Department of Mathematics, to update
the prerequisites for admission to the Faculty of Medicine.
Dr. Elder     )  That the change in enrolment restrictions
Dean Will     )  for Family and Nutritional Sciences from the
Faculty of Arts, and the change in entrance
requirements from the Faculty of Medicine, be
approved.
In response to a query as to how many internships were available to
dietetics in B.C.,  Dean Will  stated that there are 19 clinical
internships in B.C at the present time, and last year, U.B.C graduates
obtained 13 of those.  However, with a class of 57 graduates this meant
that many of them had to go elsewhere.
In reply to a query as to whether the change in enrolment involved a
change in the actual number of people to be accepted into the program,
Dr. Elder explained that the previous Calendar statement indicated that
admission was based on academic standing but not that alone. The
statement had now been expanded to inform possible registrants that 9336.
September 14, 1988
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Medicine - change in entrance requirements (continued)
although that person may have the academic qualifications, they may not
be accepted, and that the proposal had nothing to do with a change in
quota.
After further discussion the motion was put and carried.
Committee on Student Awards
Dr. Cook, Chairman of the committee, presented the report. Dr. Cook
asked the Chairman to convey to the President, Dr. Stager and Mrs. King of
the Ceremonies Office, the great pleasure of the committee at seeing the
inclusion of of the entrance scholarship winners in the in special
ceremony put on by the University on September 8. The committee felt that
it was an excellent introduction and recognition for the winners of the
Chancellor's, the President's, and the number of named entrance
scholarships to the university.
Dr. Cook responded to questions raised at the previous meeting regarding
the presentation of awards and scholarships to students that are also
involved in the athletic program. Dr. Cook read to Senate the following
extract from the minutes of September 14, 1966 which, she said, clearly
outlines the intent and the substance of the awards presented to Senate at
the last meeting:
"Athletes at The University of B.C. who have met academic and other
qualifications have always received their share of scholarships and
bursaries open to the student body at large.
The continuing Senate policy, however, does not permit the establishment
under University auspices of "athletic scholarships," designed for the
primary purpose of recruiting selected players for teams. 9337.
September 14, 1988
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
"On the other hand, the Senate regulations do make it possible for
donors to establish awards, such as scholarships and bursaries, which
are open in competition to students who have combined merit and
participation in a branch or branches of athletics with sound academic
standing. These awards, when established under terms acceptable to
Senate are administered in the normal way."
Dr. Cook pointed out to Senate that of the recommendations made at the
last meeting the above policy assisted the committee in tidying up the
wording of the five awards referred back to the committee.  Dr. Cook felt
that the committee had not only satisfied the intent, but also the
substance and the continuity of the existing Senate policy and had
attended to the particular concerns raised by Senate regarding specific
wording.
In presenting the list of new awards, Dr. Cook drew attention to the two
Amoco Canada Petroleum Company Ltd. Scholarships, each in the sum of
#3,250. The other two awards, the Lome R. Kersey Memorial Bursary and
the Stanley M. Oberg Scholarship, were made to honour prior members that
served on the U.B.C. faculty. The Kersey award is for engineering and the
Oberg award for a Master's student in the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration.
Dr. Cook      ) That the new awards (listed in the Appendix)
Mr. McMillan  )  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 Phyllida M. Conchie Carver Memorial
Scholarship, and it was suggested that the terms of the award be
clarified.  (Amended in the Appendix)
The motion was put and carried. 9338.
September 14, 1988
Reports of Committees of Senate (continued)
Tributes Committee
Memorial Minute
The following memorial statement had been prepared in accordance with
the custom of Senate, in recognition by the University and Senate of the
late Beverley Kathleen Lecky.
IN MEMORIAM
BEVERLEY KATHLEEN LECKY
With the recent death of Beverley Kathleen Lecky, The University of
British Columbia has lost a loyal graduate and an active lifelong
supporter of her Alma Mater..
Mrs. Lecky came from a family whose connections with the University were
unusually strong. Her father, the late George Cunningham, serve on the
Board of Governors for over thirty years. She earned her B.A. degree in
1938, while assuming an active role in student affairs. After serving
on the executive of the Alumni Association, she was elected to the
Presidency of that organization in 1968.
In 1969, Beverley Lecky was elected by Convocation to the Senate and, in
accord with the policy of the time, was one of four senators elected to
the Board of Governors. In 19 72 she was reappointed by the government
to serve a second term on the Board.
In addition to her university service, Mrs. Lecky was active in many
facets of the community. She held numerous executive positions in
United Community Services, and served on the Boards of the Vancouver
Association for Retarded Children, the Vancouver Girls Club Association,
the Health Centre for Children, and the Junior League of Vancouver.
Beverley Lecky's life was one of service, both to the community and to
the University which she loved. Few alumni have given of themselves so
freely and unstintingly. Few alumni will be missed as much as she.
Beverley Lecky embodied all of the qualities which every university
hopes to instil in its graduates.
To her husband, John, and to her surviving family, the Senate of The
University of British Columbia extends its deepest sympathy.
Dr. Dennison  ) That the memorial statement for
Mr. Thorn     ) Beverley Kathleen Lecky be spread
on the minutes of Senate and that
a copy be sent to the relatives of
the deceased.
Carried 9339.
September 14, 1988
Reports of Committees of Senate (continued)
Ad hoc Committee on the Election of Student Senators
Mr.  McMillan  presented  the  following  report,  which  had  been
circulated:
"At its November 1987 meeting, the Senate established this committee to
consider a motion that would change the method of electing the 17
student members of Senate. Students in each of the 12 Faculties now
elect one senator and also vote for candidates of five at-large
positions. The motion sought to change that by eliminating the at-large
positions and reassigning those seats to the five Faculties with the
largest numbers of students. The five largest Faculties would then have
two senators each and the other seven Faculties one. This appears to be
an idea whose time, if it is ever to be, has not yet come.
The committee met only once (in January), and although the mover of the
motion was not present, he was elected chairman. He has not pursued the
matter, and is no longer a member of Senate.
The other decision of that meeting was to solicit views on the proposed
change from the students who were members of Senate at that time, from
student senators-elect, from the Alma Mater Society, and from the
undergraduate societies. Letters went out in February, asking for
replies within a month.  We received none.
In the apparent absence of any groundswell of clamour for change from
either the student organizations or student members of Senate, the
committee recommends that the present method of electing student
senators remain unchanged, and asks that this committee be discharged."
Mr. McMillan  )  That the report be received and
Dr. Elder     )  that the committee be discharged.
Carried
Centre for Continuing Education
Report on Diploma and Certificate Programs
Ms.  Anne Ironside, Acting Director  of the Centre for  Continuing
Education, presented the following report on diploma and certificate
programs administered by the Centre for Continuing Education which had
been circulated for information:
'Diploma programs in Administration for Engineerings and Administration
for Foresters
A. The Diploma Program in Administration for Engineers is offered
jointly by the Faculty of Applied Science and the Centre for
Continuing Education. 93 40.
September 14, 1988
Centre for Continuing Education
Report on Diploma and Certificate Programs
"Diploma programs in Administration for Engineerings and Administration
for Foresters  (continued)
1. There were eight new admissions into the program this year.
2. Total enrolment in the program since its inception in 1968 now
stands at 1,152 with a total of 92 graduates to date.
3. There were 323 registrants for the 18 courses offered on-campus
and in the Greater Vancouver area.
B. 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 as modified by
Vancouver Building By-Laws. A 5 year requalification requirement is
now being processed for most of these individuals and twenty-five new
candidates are being examined. It is likely that this program will
be modified to go province-wide using KNOW facilities.
Certificate in Site Planning
The Certificate in Site Planning program had eight first year and eight
second year students registered during the 1987-1988 academic year.
Two students completed the requirements for the Certificate during
1987-88.
In the 1988-89 academic year, it is expected that there will be seven
students in the second year and seven students entering the first year."
