Business arising from the Minutes
Report of the  Librarian  1974-75   (P.6545)
Discussion of the report had been deferred to the March meeting.
Dr. McGregor, Chairman of the Senate Library Committee drew Senate's
attention to the financial needs of the Library, and gave notice of the
following motion: -
"That members of Senate request the Senate Budget Committee to
advise the President that the dire needs of the Library be a first
charge upon the new budget when the various sums are allocated. "
Student Residences    (P.6546)
Mr. Dougherty     ) That Senate recommend to the Board
Ms. Blandford     ) of Governors that henceforth the single
students' residences on campus shall
remain solely for the use of students
during the complete winter session as
students have paid rent in full for the
use of these facilities, and any alternative
use of these facilities will interfere with
the academic progress of students.
It was explained that occupants of residences had received a letter from the
Convention Centre requesting that they be informed when students vacated their
rooms in order that arrangements could be made to accommodate a convention
planned for late April.
Mr. Dougherty pointed out that the assignment of rooms to people attending
conventions last year had caused a great deal of inconvenience to students who
had not vacated their rooms and the intent of the motion was to ensure that this
did not happen in the future.
The motion was put and carried. 6553.

Wednesday, March 17, 1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate   (continued)
Budget Committee
Dr. McDowell informed Senate that the Budget Committee intended to report
annually to Senate each September.   The report would not necessarily give
specific financial details since the role of the committee was to advise the
President and also because of the nature of the information the committee
was now considering and the additional data it expected to develop.    It would,
however, provide members of Senate with a satisfactory review of its activities
and seek to provide an appreciation of the evolving role of this committee.
Report on the B.F.A.  Studio Program in Fine Arts
When the B.F.A. Studio Program in Fine Arts was approved by Senate in
February 1970 the Dean of Arts was requested to submit a progress report within
three to five years.   Senate was informed that in 1973 the Dean of Arts struck a
committee to review the program.   The following recommendations of the committee
were contained in the report circulated to Senate: -
I. Students should be given much more careful counselling so that their
academic program becomes more coherent than is generally the case now.
They should be encouraged, or required, to take more courses within the
Fine Arts Department itself (especially in Art History), and more courses
in the other departments of the creative and performing arts.
II. The Committee became convinced early in its work that reform of the
second year studio course FA 281 was essential.   This appears to have
been accomplished through a reorganization proposed by the Department
(see Appendix) .   In the view of this Committee, thorough and systematic
training in this course is the best way to ensure that each student receives
the necessary grounding in the techniques of several media.   In addition,
we recommend that a review of each student's performance be carried out
at the end of the second year.   The student's achievement and capacity
should be assessed and tested in ways more systematic and stringent than
is usual in the other studio courses. 6563.
Wednesday, March 17, 1976.
Report on the B.F.A.  Studio Program in Fine Arts   (continued)
III. The assessment procedures for the third and fourth years, should remain
unchanged except that:
(a) Students should not be permitted to play a direct part in
assigning grades to other students.   At the same time, their
participation in other stages of the assessment procedures
should be encouraged.
(b) Assessors should encourage more genuinely critical discussion
at the assessment meetings.
IV. There should normally be no admission to the third year except for students
who have completed FA 281 or the equivalent at another institution.   At the
end of the second year students should be required to demonstrate that they
have the technical, academic and imaginative competence to continue in the
program.
V. The B.F.A. program should be funded adequately.
VI. The Dean should consider what means would best solve the problem of film.
The solution might include a central, shared repository of equipment for
all departments in the creative and performing arts.   This would minimize
duplication and perhaps reduce friction.   Certainly something should be
done to encourage and facilitate the free movement of students among these
departments and provide increased opportunities for them to collaborate in
experiments to expand their knowledge and appreciation of all the fine arts.
In the long run, however, the solution to demarcation problems may be the
establishment of a Department of Film, and also of a School of the creative
and performing arts.
VII. The Committee accepts that the B.F.A. program does belong in the
university and finds itself in accord with the general aim of providing
"a university education for artists".   The Committee is also sensitive to
the difficulties faced by a new program which must seek to find the proper
balance between the theoretical, the technical and the experimental in an
area where a premium is placed upon imagination and self-motivation.   In
view of such factors as these, the Committee recommends that a further
review of the B.F.A. program be conducted in three years' time.
In the report of the Dean of Arts it was stated that he intended to bring
about the implementation of Recommendations I, III and IV.   The proposed reform
of Fine Arts 281 referred to in Recommendation II had been carried out satisfactorily,
and the review of students' work also proposed in that Recommendation was covered 6564.
Wednesday, March 17, 1976.
Report on the B.F.A.  Studio Program  in Fine Arts    (continued)
in Recommendation IV.   Referring to Recommendation V it was stated that a great
many programs in the Faculty of Arts would benefit from increased funding and
the needs of the studio program would be assessed in relation to the availability
of funds and the overall priorities of the Faculty.   The problem referred to in
Recommendation VI had been solved to the satisfaction of all concerned by an
agreement between the Department of Fine Arts and the Department of Theatre.
Dr. Stager ) That the B.F.A. Studio Program in Fine
Dr. Shearer       ) Arts be continued.
In amendment:
Dr. Suedfeld       ) That the program be reviewed again in
Dean Larkin        ) three years'time.
Lost
The motion was put and carried.
Proposals of the Faculties
Faculty of Medicine
In the proposal circulated to Senate it was stated that in the first round of
operation of the three-year program it was evident that the course content of
Second Year could not be satisfactorily covered in the time allotted.   The Faculty
was therefore proposing to move approximately 60 hours from the first term of
Second Year to second term and extend the year for two weeks at the end.
Dean Bates       ) That Second Year Medicine be
Dr. Copp ) lengthened by two weeks at the
end of the year, contingent upon
satisfactory timetabling.
Carried 6565.
Wednesday, March 17, 1976.
Proposals of the Faculties
Faculty of Medicine   (continued)
Mr. Walls gave notice of the following motion:
"That whereas Second Year Medicine is to be lengthened by
two weeks and is already one week longer than the terms of
most other Faculties, be it resolved that Senate recommend
to the Board of Governors that special consideration for
financial aid be given to the Medical students enrolled in
the program. "
School  of Nursing
Dr. Uprichard
Dr. Copp
That the following change in admission
requirements be approved: -
Section (h) subsection (c), page 53 of
the 1975-76 Calendar, to read:
"their record of a refresher course in
nursing within the last three years,
followed by reference from an employer
covering a work experience of not less
than 120 days part-time work within a
nine month period, or not less than six
months consecutive full-time work. "
Carried
A proposal to limit enrolment in the School of Nursing, effective for the
1976/77 Academic Year, had been circulated.   It was stated that the reasons for
the proposal were principally a shortage of facilities.   The numbers were chosen
to stabilise the present overall enrolment of the students since without such a
quota there would be further tremendous growth in enrolment.   The School's
proposal had been discussed extensively within the School and with its Advisory
Committee and the Council of the School of Nursing as well as with the Executive
of the Registered Nurses Association of B.C.    All agreed on the necessity of
some type of quota.   The selection and admissions procedures to implement 6566.
Wednesday, March 17, 1976.
Proposals of the Faculties
School of Nursing    (continued)
such a quota are under consideration and Senate will be kept informed of the
regulations developed.
Dr. Uprichard     ) That Senate approve the proposal of the
Dr. Copp ) School of Nursing to limit the enrolment
in the School by restricting the admission
of students, effective for the 1976/77
Academic Year, as follows:-
Admission into First Year of Nursing:    113 students
Registered Nurses admitted into the
Third Year (in addition to the Second
Year students continuing into Third
Year): 50 students
In reply to a query Dr. Uprichard stated that the School would need to take
in 113 First Year students for each of the years between 1976/77 and 1980/81
but that this was a projection and may be changed as the situation changes.
In amendment:
Dr. Clark ) That these restrictions be accepted for
Mr. Carter       ) three years rather than five, and that
in the third year there be a review of
how this is working out.
Lost
The motion was put and carried.
Faculty of Science   (See Appendix 'B')
A list of intersession credit course proposals for 1976 had been circulated
for information.
President's  Report  1974-75
The report was circulated for information. 6567.
Wednesday, March 17,  1976.
Other business
Expansion of the Medical  School  Enrolment
The Chairman reported that on March 4 he had received a letter from the
Minister of Education indicating that the Government was most concerned that
several hundred qualified students from British Columbia were being turned
away each year from Medical School while there was a demand in the Province
for almost four times as many doctors as were being turned out by this University.
The Government had given the University 60 days to come up with an acceptable
plan for doubling the enrolment in the Faculty of Medicine, and a plan for a
240 bed community teaching hospital on campus and the upgrading of teaching
facilities in affiliated hospitals.    If the University could produce an acceptable
plan $50 million would be made available, half from the federal Health Resources
Fund and half from the provincial government.
The Chairman stated that he immediately called a meeting of the Dean of the
Faculty of Medicine along with the Clinical Heads of that Faculty and the Academic
Heads, and in addition all of the allied health professions such as Pharmaceutical
Sciences, Dentistry, Nursing and Rehabilitation Medicine.   It was felt that the
University should consider the request of the government to see whether it
could formulate a proposal.   The Chairman assured members of Senate that he
had indicated to everyone in the Faculty of Medicine and the allied health fields
that if it were possible to formulate a plan it should be done but if on the other
hand this would mean a deterioration in the academic standards that should be
indicated to the government.   It was also felt that the service role of the 240 bed
teaching hospital should be established in consultation with the existing teaching
hospitals, and that it was important to examine the need to uprgrade the academic 6568.

Chairman reported that he had been in touch with the Department of Education
in Victoria and had been assured that there would be no major changes in the
Universities Act this session of the House.
