Faculty  of  Forestry,  School   of  Rehabilitation  Medicine, Faculty of  Medicine
(continued)
Dr. Wisenthal ) That the proposals submitted by the Faculty
Dean Webber  ) of   Forestry,   the   School   of   Rehabilitation
Medicine  and  the  Fraculty  of  Medicine,  be
approved.
Carried
Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences
The committee recommended approval of a proposed new course
Pharmacy 240 (Ife) Pharmacology for Nurses.
Dr. Wisenthal ) That    the    proposal     of    the    Faculty    of
Dean Riedel    ) Pharmaceutical    Sciences    to   offer   a   new
course, Pharmacy 240, be approved.
Dr. Wisenthal explained that at the March 1979 meeting of Senate revisions
to the program in the School of Nursing were approved on the understanding that a
specific course consisting of life units of Pharmacology, which was being
developed, would be available for listing in the Calendar by the time the second
year of the program was implemented. The division of Pharmacology in the
Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences had subsequently developed the course now
before Senate.
Dr. Wisenthal further explained that the Department of Pharmacology in the
Faculty of Medicine had raised objections to the Faculty of Pharmaceutical
Sciences offering a course in Pharmacology since they felt that this should be
within their jurisdiction. They also felt that nursing students should be taught by
instructors who had expertise in therapeutics. However, the only course now
offered by the Department of Pharmacology, i.e. Pharmacology 390, was a 3 unit
course and the School of Nursing was not able to include a 3 unit course in its
present curriculum. Also this course could not be required, at present, of all
Nursing students since not all nursing students had the necessary basic sciences
background.
In conclusion, Dr. Wisenthal stated that the School of Nursing were satisfied
with the course developed for them by the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences
and since this was the only course available the committee recommended
approval, without prejudice to the question of jurisdiction or the place of basic
sciences in the Nursing program, in order that students already in the first year of
the program would be able to take the Ife units of Pharmacology mandatory in the
second year. 7282.
Wednesday,  December   12,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences  (continued)
During the following discussion it was suggested that the proposal be
reconsidered in light of the jurisdictional problems.
Dean Beagrie ) That  the  proposal   be  referred  back to the
Dean Webber  ) School of Nursing for reconsideration.
Several members felt that since the School of Nursing had already agreed
that the proposed course was adequate there was no point in referring the proposal
back to them.
The motion to refer was put and lost.
The motion to approve the course was put and carried.
Nominating Committee
Dr. Stager presented the report concerning recommendations for membership on
the Committee on Student Awards. At its meeting of November 14, 1979, Senate

collecting the information contained in the report.
Report from Regent College
The following report from Regent College was presented to Senate in accordance
with the regulation in the Affiliation Agreement of January 18, 1978 which requires
that a theological college "shall submit a resume of its academic operations to the
Senate annual I y":-
" In accordance with the regulation of the Senate of The University of British
Columbia for Affiliated Colleges, I am reporting on the activities of Regent
College for the stated period. In the Academic Year 1978-79, Regent College
enrolled approximately 105 full-time, post graduate students in the Diploma of
Christian Studies and Master of Christian Studies Program. Of these students, 76
were in the Diploma, which is a one year program designed primarily for students
returning to secular professions while 29 were candidates for the Master's Degree.
Of the numbers enrolled 61 graduated with the diploma while 16 graduated with a
completed thesis and a Master of Christian Studies.
During the year an extensive long-range planning program was undertaken. An
attempt was made to evaluate our progress as we enter the tenth year of our
diploma and degree programs and to set directions and establish priorities for the
coming five to ten years. From the planning process it was determined that we
should continue our one year diploma as the foundation of the Regent program. In
addition, we saw the continuing need for the Master of Christian Studies with its
strong academic emphasis and the possibilities for theses in a variety of
theological and inter—disciplinary fields. One new direction consistent with
Regent's earliest plans but never implemented was the decision to undertake a full
three year Master of Divinity program suitable for those entering full-time or
professional religious service. This latter program has begun in a modest way in
the fall of 1979 and plans are being formulated and shaped in consultation with the
Association of Theological Schools and with the theological colleges within the
University complex.
Regent continues to have a stable faculty, currently numbering 10, including the
Chancellor, Principal and Registrar. With the exception of the Registrar, who is
currently completing his doctorate, all of the faculty hold the Ph.D. and are
actively engaged in research and publishing.
The budget for 1979 totalled $650,000 of which $237,000 were expended on direct
educational instruction, $53,000 on library, including a payment of $44,000 to the
Vancouver School of Theology for library services, and the remainder on general
administration and physical plant. During the year, in addition to a government
grant and a number of private foundation grants, some progress was made toward
corporate and capital funding. 7285.
Wednesday,  December  12,   1979.
Report from Regent College  (continued)
" During the past year administrative changes were completed as follows:
Dr. James M. Houston, Formerly of Oxford University and the first Principal of
the college, was named Chancellor and Professor of Environmental and Integrative
Studies. Dr. Carl E. Armerding, formerly Associate Professor of Old Testament,
was named Principal and Professor of Old Testament Studies. Mr. Richard J.
Reynolds was named Registrar.
Regent continues to bring to the campus of U.B.C. a number of distinguished
scholars from all over the world. For the Staley Lectureship this year we have
had Dr. Peter Craigie, head of the Department of Religious Studies at the
University of Calgary, who lectured on the topic "Biblical Wisdom in the Modern
World". In the spring of 1980, Dr. Victor Adrian, President, Ontario Theological
Seminary, will lecture on "The Roots of the Radical Reformation in the Sixteenth
Century". Our Adjunct Professorship program will again bring Dr. David Jeffrey,
Chairman of the Department of English at the University of Ottawa, for two mini-
courses in literature and theology, with particular emphasis on the medieval
period. In the Summer School just past we had the privilege of lectures from
Professor Brian Griffeths, Department of Economics at the University of London,
Dr. John R. W. Stott, also of London, Professor Leon Morris, Principal of Ridley
College in Melbourne, Australia, Dr. Leland A. Ryken of the Department of
English at Wheaton College in Illinois, Dr. J. Ernest Runions of Carey Hall and the
Department of Psychiatry, U.B.C, together with several of our own faculty.
During the summer a number of community and university events were held
including a most stimulating lecture by Professor Griffeths on "The Ethics of
Capitalism".
In conclusion, I would like to thank The University of British Columbia for
continued and helpful cooperation and particularly Dr. T. H. Brown, who has
helpfully and faithfully served as the University Representative on the Regent
Senate."
Report on enrolment 1979-80
The report on enrolment for 1979-80 was circulated for information. Total
day—time enrolment as at December I, 1979 was 23,161.
Mission statement
President Kenny reported that copies of a statement entitled "The Mission of The
University of British Columbia" had been circulated to all members of Senate for
information.
The statement had been prepared in response to a request from the Universities
Council of British Columbia and was divided into two parts. The first was an overall
statement of the University's mission; the second contained more detailed statements
of the Faculties, the Library and the Computing Centre and a statement on U.B.C's
role in continuing education.
Other business
Open Learning Institute
Dr. Dennison drew attention to potential problems for students from the Open
Learning Institute seeking admission to Graduate Studies or any of the professional 7286.
Wednesday, December  12,   1979.
Other business
Open Learning Institute  (continued)
Faculties at U.B.C. He stated that it appeared vital that courses offered by the Open
Learning Institute be kept under review to ensure transferability.
The Chairman assured Senate that the academic courses offered by the Open
Learning Institute would be closely monitored from the point of view of the
University.
Liaison with post-secondary institutions
Dr. Dennison also pointed out that, in his opinion, liaison with post-secondary
institutions might be more difficult now that post-secondary institutions were under
one ministry and the universities under another and suggested that the Senate
Committee on Liaison with Post—Secondary Institutions might want to consider that
point.
Medical School Expansion 1980-81
Dean Webber reported that the Faculty of Medicine proposed increasing the
undergraduate enrolment in the medical school from 100 to 120 students in 1980, and
that this had been approved by the Board of Governors.
The meeting adjourned at 9.50 p.m.
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, January 16, 1980.
