Report of Senate Committee - New Programmes
Diploma in Adult Education
At its meeting on November 4, 1965, Senate considered the
proposed Certificate Course in Adult Education and referred it to the
newly established Programmes Committee for detailed study, particularly
in relation to the possibility of its having an adverse effect on the
standard of the Master's degree course in Adult Education. Monday, December 20, 1965        3578
Dr. D.C. Murdoch, Chairman of the New Programmes Committee,
said that his Committee recommended that Senate should approve the
programme in a revised form.  Three main changes had been made:
firstly, with regard to admission requirements and procedures, all
requirements must be fulfilled;  secondly, the programme's policy
would be established by a Policy Committee with one member appointed by
each of the following:  the Dean of Graduate Studies, the Dean of
Education, the Dean of Arts, the Dean of Agriculture, the Director of
Extension, the Registrar, and the Professor of Adult Education;  and,
thirdly, non-credit courses would not be considered part of the
Master's programme in Adult Education.  Upon successful completion of
the Course of Study requirements, a candidate would be eligible to
apply to the Programme Director for the Diploma in Adult Education
which would be presented jointly by the Faculty of Education and the
Extension Department.

Report of the Curriculum Committee
The Chairman next called upon Dr. Mann, Chairman of the
Curriculum Committee, to give his report.
In making his report, Dr. Mann asked that his remarks be
considered as having reference to all the items on the Senate agenda
which had been referred to the Curriculum Committee, which were as
follows:
Faculty of Arts - Reform of curriculum in respect of Third and
Fourth Years of the Bachelor of Arts degree
programme.  Regulation in respect of compulsory
laboratory science course.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Department of Mineral Engineering - Min. 699 Thesis for Ph.D.

(As summarised in Appendix II)
(see page 3600)
Faculty of Agriculture
Faculty of Applied Science
School of Architecture
Faculty of Arts
Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration
Faculty of Dentistry
Faculty of Education
Faculty of Forestry
Faculty of Graduate Studies
School of Nursing
Faculty of Pharmacy
Faculty of Science
The Committee's terms of reference were to consider reports
from the Faculties proposing changes, additions or deletions of courses
and to make recommendations to Senate,
The Committee had very little time to study the various
proposals, and felt that inasmuch as details of such proposals had
been prepared by experts in the Faculties concerned, and had been
passed by the appropriate Faculty Curriculum Committees, the Senate
Curriculum Committee should concur and recommend Senate's approval of
the proposals.
The Curriculum Committee felt it should also examine
submissions from an academic standpoint and assess the significance of
any proposed changes, but to do that some guidance from the Faculties
concerned was essential.  In reply to a question, Dr. Mann said that,
in general, only about four or five items a session were of special
significance.  The Curriculum Committee therefore made the following
recommendations to Senate: Monday, December 20, 1965        3583
1. We recommend that Senate approve all the proposals for course
changes submitted to it by the Faculties for consideration at this
meeting of Senate.  We make this recommendation on the assumption
that all such course changes have been considered and approved by
the curriculum committee of the appropriate faculty, and by the
faculty itself.
2. To ensure that the above assumption will always be justified, we
also recommend that Senate inform all Faculties that for course
proposals to be considered by Senate, they must all be considered
and approved by the faculty and by their curriculum committees and
that all submissions should carry a statement to this effect.
3. We recommend that Senate request the Faculties to include with
their resumes of course changes, reports from their curriculum
committees setting forth the significances if any of such course
changes for the structure and development of the faculty.  Where
the changes carry no great significance, let it be so stated.
In the discussion that followed, the Chairman referred to
course changes, deletions of courses, etc., in the Faculty of Applied
Science and, in particular, to the proposal of the Department of
Chemical Engineering that English 250 be dropped in the Second Year.
Many members felt that the dropping of English 250 was a retrograde
step, but it was pointed out that English had been droped in the
second year in all of the other departments in Applied Science.  It
was agreed that the proposal to drop English 250 should be referred
back to the Faculty of Applied Science for further study and report to
Senate.
The Chairman next called on Dr. Healy, Dean of the Faculty
of Arts, to speak to the proposed reform of curriculum in respect of
Third and Fourth Years of the Bachelor of Arts degree programme, which
was recommended by the Senate Executive Committee for approval, subject Monday, December 20, 1965        3584
to the approval of the Curriculum Committee.
Dean Healy said that there were two programmes of study which
led to the degree of Bachelor of Arts:  the Honours Programme and the
Major Programme.  There was no change in the Honours Programme.  In
the Major Programme, which required a measure of specialization,
students must take fifteen units of work in courses numbered 300 and
above in one subject, or in one field of concentration.  In the Major
Programme the degree of Bachelor of Arts will be conferred when sixty
units of work approved by the Faculty of Arts have been completed, at
least twenty-four of which must be in courses numbered 300 and above.
The following change in the laboratory science requirement
for the Bachelor of Arts degree was also recommended to Senate for
approval:
"That the regulation concerning the compulsory laboratory
science course be replaced by one requiring that every
student, prior to obtaining the B.A. degree, obtain
standing in at least one three-unit course in the
Faculty of Science or in Geography 101."
The Senate Executive Committee also recommended approval of
the Ph.D. programme of the Department of Mineral Engineering in the
Faculty of Graduate Studies;  the Master of Arts degree in Creative
Writing and also in Creative Writing-Theatre, subject to approval of
the Curriculum Committee.
A correction was noted in connection with the proposals
submitted by the Faculty of Science in respect to the regulation Monday, December 20, 1965        3585
"Courses from other Faculties".  The second sentence of the regulation
should read:
"...students in the Faculty of Science may include some of these
courses in their programmes..."
Dr. Mann  )
Dr. Jacobs ) That the recommendations of the Senate
Curriculum Committee be approved.
Carried.
Dean Healy  )

Faculty of Education
Diploma in Couselling for
Vocational Development
The Faculty of Education had prepared a diploma programme in
vocational development and the proposed programme was before Senate for
its approval.
The Senate Executive Committee's recommendation, that it be
referred to the New Programmes Committee for study, was approved.
Representation of B.C. Teachers' Federation
The Faculty of Education recommended that the B.C. Teachers1
Federation be granted representation up to two members on the Faculty
of Education.
The representation should be made by the B.C. Teachers'
Federation members other than those on the Joint Board of Education.
Dean Gage )
Dean Cowan ) That the recommendation of the Faculty of
Education in respect of representation of
B.C. Teachers' Federation on the Faculty
be approved.
Carried.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Inter-University Co-operation
Dean Cowan spoke in respect to the recommendations of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies concerning courses from other British
Columbia universities offered for credit towards post-graduate degrees
at the University of British Columbia.  The recommendations, which Monday, December 20, 1965        3587
had been discussed in detail by the Joint Committee of the three
universities, were as follows:
1. With the development of strong academic centres at Simon Fraser
University and the University of Victoria, there may arise circumstances
under which one or more courses offered there can contribute to the
training of a graduate student registered at the University of British
Columbia.
2. Where it is considered desirable for students to take courses at
either of these Universities, the following procedure will apply:
(a) The recommendation specifying the courses to be taken will
originate with the candidate's programme committee at this
University.
(b) The recommendation will be forwarded to the Dean of Graduate
Studies over the signatures of the chairman of the candidate's
committee and the Head of the Department, or Director of the
Institute, within which the student is registered.  It will
include a statement explaining why the suggested course of
action is important to the student's programme.
(c) If the student is enrolled in an interdisciplinary area, rather
than in a department, the request will come directly from the
candidate's committee to the Dean of Graduate Studies.
(d) The Dean of Graduate Studies will act on the request as with
other matters of course.
(e) There will be an annual review of action taken in order to
keep Senate informed of developing practice.
(f) The number of units taken at other universities for credit
toward a graduate degree at U.B.C. should not normally exceed 6.
Dean Cowan )
Dean Gage ) That inter-University co-operation at the
graduate level, as recommended by the Faculty
of Graduate Studies, be approved.
Carried. Monday, December 20, 1965        3588
School of Physical Education and Recreation
Abolition of supplementals in
activity courses
The School of Physical Education and Recreation recommended that
Senate change the regulations in connection with supplemental
examinations in activity courses to read as follows:
"Supplemental examinations will not be granted in Physical
Education activity courses.  Students who are unable to meet the
requirement because of medical or other approved reasons may, at
the discretion of the School and with the approval of the Dean,
be granted deferred examinations.  Such privilege will be
considered only if the student submits a written application to
the Director before the end of the official examination period."
Dean Gage    )
Dean McCreary ) That the recommended abolition of
supplementals in activity courses
be approved.
Carried.
Faculty of Science
Deletion of requirement of four years
for degree following junior matriculation
The Chairman asked the Registrar to comment on the proposal
of the Faculty of Science to delete the requirement of four years for
a degree following junior matriculation.
The proposal had been overlooked by the Senate Executive
Committee and, consequently, no recommendation was before Senate.
The Dean of the Faculty of Science, Dr. Okulitch, felt that if a
student could complete the course of study in less than four years
following junior matriculation he should be allowed to do so, the Monday, December 20, 1965        3589
course of study to be based on course units.
Dean McCreary )
Dean Okulitch ) That the deletion of requirement of four
years for Bachelor of Science Degree
following junior matriculation be approved.
Carried.
School of Social Work
Discontinuance of the degree
Bachelor of Social Work
The faculty of the School of Social Work and the Council of
the School of Social Work had recommended that, as of the 1966-67
academic year, the granting of the degree Bachelor of Social Work be
discontinued.  The Senate Executive Committee supported the
recommendation.
The Bachelor of Social Work was first offered at the
University of British Columbia when the change was made from a Diploma
Course to a one-year graduate course after World War II.  When the
two-year Master of Social Work degree, which represented the completion
of the full sequence of the School, was approved, the Bachelor of Social
Work degree was retained, probably as an inducement to enrolment.  The
need for inducement for enrolment no longer existed.
Dean Healy )
Dean Gage ) That the degree of Bachelor of Social Work
be discontinued.
Carried. Monday, December 20, 1965        3590
Senate Elections
The Chairman asked the Registrar to speak to the proposals
which had been circulated in connection with the proposed procedure for
Senate elections due to take place in 1966.  The Senate Executive
Committee recommended approval of the proposed procedure.
In discussion, it was agreed that the proposal in connection
with the taking of office by the Chancellor and members of Senate
elected by Convocation should be amended.  The proposals, as amended,
read as follows:
1. The Chancellor and members of Senate elected by Convocation shall
take office immediately following the final ceremony of the Spring
Congregation.
2. That ballots be in the hands of the Registrar not later than
10 a.m. on the date of the regular May meeting of Senate.
3. That the results of the ballotting be announced at the conclusion
of the regular May meeting of the Senate.
4. That the notice of the election and the call for nominations be
made in the January-February issue of U.B.C. Reports.
5. That any person who is nominated for the office of Chancellor or
as a member of the Senate may refuse to become a candidate for the
office for which he has been nominated, and his name shall not be
included in the list of candidates if he notifies the Registrar of his
refusal within five days after the day upon which the time for
nominations has expired.
6. That the voting papers be designed to permit machine tabulation
of the results of the election.  For 1966 the ballots be key-punched
and verified continuously following validation by the Registrar with the
count to be taken after 10 a.m. on the date of the May meeting of Senate.

Report of Senate Committee - New Programmes
Proposal to establish a
Faculty of Nursing
At its meeting on May 19, 1965, Senate had considered the proposal
of the Council of Nursing, that the School of Nursing should become a
Faculty of Nursing and had referred the proposal to the President's
Committee on Academic Affairs for preliminary investigation and report.
The matter had subsequently been taken up by the newly established New
Programmes Committee.  The Chairman called on Dr. Murdoch, Chairman
of the New Programmes Committee to make his report. Monday, December 20, 1965        3592
Dr. Murdoch said that he had nothing to add to the report of
the Committee which had been circulated in advance to members of Senate.
The recommendations of his Committee were contained in the following
summary:
1. The administrative future of the School of Nursing should be
viewed as an integral part of the problem of the academic structure of
the Health Sciences Centre.  The former should be decided only in the
context of the latter.
2. The School of Nursing should not be given Faculty status at this
time but should be assured of a position within the Health Sciences
Centre which is not administratively subordinate to the Faculty of
Medicine.
3. As soon as the academic structure of the Health Sciences Centre
has been settled, the School of Nursing should be removed from the
jurisdiction of the Faculty of Applied Science.
4. The School of Nursing should be encouraged to submit immediately
to Senate and to the Board of Governors detailed plans for the
expansion in staff, course offerings, and the recruitment of students
recommended by the Royal Commission on Health Services.  The urgency
of this expansion should be drawn to the attention of the Board of
Governors.
Following a discussion in which Miss Mallory, Director of the
School of Nursing, Dr. McCreary, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, and
Dr. Murdoch took part, it was agreed that the recommendations of the
New Programmes Committee be accepted.
The Chairman, Dr. Macdonald, said that he was prepared, in due
course, to establish a Committee within the Health Sciences Group to
consider administrative and academic areas and relationships of
Faculties and schools within that area and to bring forward
recommendations. Monday, December 20, 1965
