Wednesday, February 16, 1977.
Business arising from the Minutes
Teaching Assistants
Notice of motion had been given at the previous meeting.
Mr. Funt ) That Senate establish an ad hoc committee to
Dr. McGregor   ) investigate the present practice of giving
teaching assistants the full responsibility for
the teaching of certain courses or section of
courses.
Mr. Funt stated that in some instances teaching assistants were being used
as full-time instructors in that they did the teaching and the marking with little
or no supervision.   He felt that teaching assistants should not be used as full-time
instructors without some safeguards being instituted to ensure that the quality of
teaching would not be affected and recommended that a committee be established
to investigate the matter.
Dean Larkin reminded Senate that in 1973, after an extensive study, the Faculty
of Graduate Studies issued a policy statement concerning teaching assistants.  At
that time it had been clearly stated that teaching assistants should not be assigned
the full responsibility for teaching a graduate or upper year undergraduate
course.   Dean Larkin suggested that the policy statement be made available to
members of the proposed committee.
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried.

Committee on  Regent College Affiliation
A request by Regent College for affiliation with the University had been
approved by Senate in November 1973 for an initial period of three years.   A
committee to review the affiliation had been established in November 1976.
Mrs. Field presented the report.
The committee had considered the report of the previous committee on the
affiliation of Regent College and had consulted the Board of Governors of Regent
College.   The committee used information provided by Regent College to assess 6754.
Wednesday, February 16,  1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on  Regent College Affiliation    (continued)
the request for affiliation in light of the nine criteria which Senate adopted in
1958.    (See Appendix 'C')
It was the opinion of the committee that Regent College continued to meet
criteria 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9.   It was stated in the report that when the list of
criteria was developed in 1958 the only experience of requests for affiliation of
theological colleges came from denominational colleges whose prime concern was
to prepare candidates for ordination.   Criterion 1 of the Senate accordingly
required that a college seeking affiliation "should be in good standing with
respect to a recognized constituency of churches" .  The committee did not believe
that the criterion was appropriate to Regent College which from the outset had
been transdenominational and had been concerned with theological education
for lay persons and specifically did not seek to prepare candidates for ordination.
It was stated that Regent College attracted students from many denominations and
received financial support primarily from individual contributors.   It was also
stated that Criterion 3 was satisfied as the college now had nine full-time qualified
faculty members.   Criterion 5, however, could not be met.   Regent College had
aimed for high academic standards but the Association of Theological Schools had
not evaluated the quality of its academic program because the college did not
prepare candidates for ordination which was one of the requirements for
accreditation by the Association.
The committee unanimously recommended that   (1) the request of Regent
College for continued affiliation with the University be granted;   and   (2) the 6755.
Wednesday, February 16,  1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Regent College Affiliation   (continued)
affiliation of theological colleges with a representative on the Senate of the
University be subject to review every five years.
Recommendation  1
Mrs. Field   ) That the request of Regent College for
Dr. Clark    ) continued affiliation with the University
be granted.
Dr. Pearse stated that since the institution did not meet all the criteria for
affiliation the report should be tabled until the criteria could be reviewed by a
Senate committee.
Dr. Pearse    ) That the report be tabled until a committee
Mrs. Angus   ) of Senate can be struck to review the criteria
for affiliation with the University.
Lost
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried.
Recommendation  2
Mrs. Field   ) That the affiliation of theological colleges with
Dr. Clark    ) a representative on the Senate of the University
be subject to review every five years.
It was suggested that the criteria for affiliation should be reviewed before a
decision was made on the question of five-year reviews.
Dr. Finnegan    ) That a committee be established to examine the
Dr. Pearse        ) criteria for the affiliation of theological colleges
and to consider the desirability of having
reviews of affiliations every five years.
The motion to refer Recommendation 2 to a new committee which would also
examine the existing criteria was put and carried. 6756.
Wednesday, February 16, 1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate   (continued)
Admissions Committee
Definition of Auditors
The following statement defining "Auditors" had been circulated:-
"An auditor is defined as a student registered in a credit course whose
participation is limited to that deemed appropriate by the instructor
but who, in general, is expected to maintain the same schedule of
readings as regular students although not expected to write examinations.
An auditor may not transfer to the category of regular student during
the term except upon the recommendation of the Dean of the Faculty
concerned.
Application for admission as an auditor must parallel the procedures
for the application of regular students.   The application for admission
must be accompanied by a written explanation of the reason that status
as an auditor is being sought.   Where an applicant has not met formal
requirements for admission to the University, or to the course involved,
a full statement of previous relevant activities must be submitted with
the application in order that consideration can be given for special
admission in the category "mature".
Once formal application has been made the decision on acceptance or
otherwise will be made by the Dean of the Faculty concerned or his
delegate.
The fees for auditors will be the same as those for regular students.
There will be a statement of "audit" on the permanent academic record
for any course taken by a student as an auditor.   Students taking a
combination of credit and audit courses will be subject to restrictions
on maximum work load imposed by the Faculties as interpreted by
Faculty advisers."
Dr. Finnegan    ) That the statement defining "Auditors" be
Rev. Burns       ) approved.

B.C.   College/University Transfer Guidelines
Dr. Finnegan explained that the Admissions Committee had examined
proposals from the B.C. Post-Secondary Coordinating Committee concerning 6757.
Wednesday, February 16,  1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
B.C.   College/University Transfer Guidelines   (continued)
College/University transfer guidelines.   The Admissions Committee had
made some minor amendments and recommended adoption of the following
guidelines: -
1. Discussions concerning transfer of credit for individual courses or
programs of study at public colleges and universities in British Columbia
should, in general, be initiated with the relevant Articulation Committees,
so that questions of suitability of course content, adequacy of supporting
facilities and related matters, may be discussed at an early stage of
negotiations between institutions.
To this end both colleges and universities should be prepared to provide
one another with the following information:   course name, course number,
hours per week (lecture, lab, seminar), objective of course, outline of
topics covered, texts and required readings:   and, although subject to
change without notice, the initial proposals for method of instruction,
method of evaluation, and the names and qualifications of instructors.
A standard form might be used by all colleges and universities to exchange
this information.
2. The final decision on the awarding of transfer credit rests with the
College Council or University Senate concerned.
3. A college or university which denies the transfer of credit requested
by another institution shall state the reasons for this refusal.
4. Agreements on transfer credit must be made between specified authorities
in the respective institutions, in order that contracts once made would be
duly recorded and recognized.
5. Once an agreement has been reached on the conditions of credit transfer
of an individual course or program of study, it shall not be abrogated
without prior notification to the specified authorities in the institutions
affected, and the relevant Articulation Committee.
6. A university planning changes to its curriculum which will affect the
requirements for credit transfer must inform the members of the
relevant Articulation Committees as soon as possible, at least a year in
advance of its implementation, so that other institutions can consider the
desirability of alterations to their courses and programs. 6758.
Wednesday, February 16,  1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
B.C  College/University Transfer Guidelines   (continued)
7. The colleges and universities have a responsibility to fulfil the
commitments in the course descriptions, and to notify the other
institutions in the system should any major change in the course
content or level occur.
8. Institutions should consider transfer students on the same basis as their
continuing students except that admission of college students to university
should normally be subject to a minimum overall average of "C".   Colleges
must accept the responsibi I ity of ensuring that "C" represents an acceptable
level of achievement relative to further studies;    maintenance of relative
standards should be one of the concerns of the Articulation Committees.
Notwithstanding this general provision, a university while recognizing
the right of a college student to transfer, may require a higher level of
achievement on transfer to match the level required of its own students
for admission to programs of study to which access is subject to limitations.
Universities must make provision, whilst maintaining confidentiality of
the records of individual students, for reporting the progress of transfer
students to the colleges from which they had transferred.
9. Transfer arrangements between colleges and universities are assumed
to be based on "lower division"  (i.e. first and second year) studies.   It
is recognized that the assignment of "year level" to any individual course
might vary at different institutions, and therefore, specific exceptions
to this rule might occur under inter-institutional agreements.
10. Transfer of credit would be identified in the following categories by the
universities:
(i)       specific equivalent of a given course
(ii)      unspecified (elective) credit in a discipline or department
(iii)     unspecified (elective) credit in a Faculty
(iv)     unspecified (elective) credit up to 9 semester hours (4.5
units) for academic college courses not identifiable with specific
university course offerings but which the colleges evaluate as
being appropriate for academic credit on transfer.
11. Provision should be made for a forum (such as the Post-Secondary
Coordinating Committee) where questions of transfer of students among
institutions in British Columbia can be discussed by representatives of
all the public colleges and universities of the Province and where, if
necessary, recommendations can be formulated for submission to College
Councils and University Senates. 6759.

Admissions Committee
B.C.   College/University Transfer Guidelines   (continued)
Procedure Manual
1. Colleges seeking transfer credit for new or revised courses shall make
a formal submission to the relevant university official with copies or
abridged statements to the chairmen of the pertinent Articulation
Committee(s) .   However, it would be desirable for all proposals to have
had preliminary screening in the Articulation Committees prior to their
formal submission.  Although submissions may be made at any time, each
university will establish a deadline in terms of inclusion of proposals
in its published list of college-university course equivalencies.
2. Information should be provided as in Guideline 1.
3. The responsible university official who receives a proposal will be
expected to respond as promptly as reasonable to the initiating college
with a copy to the office at the university that is responsible for the
publication of a list of course equivalencies which shall inform the
chairman of the relevant Articulation Committee (s).
Dr. Finnegan ) That the British Columbia College/University
Dr. Clark ) Credit Transfer Guidelines be adopted.
Carried
English Placement Test
The Admissions Committee recommended that the results of the English
Placement Test be required of all students entering First Year in 1977 and
in 1978.
It was explained that the Ministry of Education was sponsoring, for
a two-year trial period, an English Placement Test for students seeking
admission to the First Year of university or college.   The purpose of the
test was to assist the colleges and universities in placing incoming students
in FirstYear English courses appropriate to their needs. 6760.
Wednesday, February 16, 1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
English Placement Test   (continued)
Dr. Finnegan ) That students entering First Year in 1977 and
Rev. Burns      ) in 1978 be required to submit results of the
English Placement Test before being permitted
to enrol in courses.
Rev. Burns, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Standards in
English, reminded members that in November 1975 Senate passed a resolution
whereby a diagnostic essay test would be administered to students who had
not been recommended as being competent in written English.   However,
funds to administer the test had not been available.  The committee therefore
felt that since the Ministry of Education was sponsoring an English Placement
Test it would be an excellent opportunity to attempt to administer the original
policy.
In reply to a query it was confirmed that arrangements would be made
to administer the test on campus for those students who had not taken it in
high school.
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried.
Report of the  Librarian  1975-76
The report had been circulated for information. In speaking briefly to the
report Mr. Stuart-Stubbs referred to the effects of inflation and the lack of space
as being the main problems of the Library.
The Chairman paid tribute to the excellent work of the Librarian and his staff. 6761.
Wednesday, February 16, 1977.
Faculty of Arts
Policy re changing of grades
Senate agreed with the recommendation of the Agenda Committee that the
following proposal be referred to the Deans of the Faculties before action was
taken by Senate: -
"In any case in which the grade for a course is changed from that assigned
by the instructor, those making the change must inform the instructor, the
instructor's Department Head and the instructor's Dean, and that Senate
be requested to permit an instructor whose assigned grade has been changed,
to appeal that change to the Senate Appeals Committee."
Supplemental Composition Examination
Dean Will    ) That, beginning in the 1977-78academic year,
Dr. Clark   ) when the new Faculty of Arts supplemental
examination regulations go into effect, the
supplemental in English 100 be replaced by a
supplemental Composition Examination, for
students who failed the course only because
their writing did not reach the required standard.
The motion was put and carried subject to discussion between the Head of
the Department of English and the Registrar concerning the implementation of
the proposal.
Notre Dame University
In April 1975 Senate agreed to a request from Notre Dame University of
Nelson by authorizing the acceptance on transfer of full credit for courses taken
by students at Notre Dame University at the Third Year level during the academic
year 1975-76.
A further letter had been received from Notre Dame University requesting
that the authorization be extended to include students at the Third Year level
during the academic year 1976-77 for admission to U.B.C. in 1977-78. 6762.
Wednesday, February 16, 1977.
Notre Dame University   (continued)
Dr. McGregor   ) In the event that the authority of Notre Dame
Dr. Finnegan    ) University of Nelson to grant degrees is
revoked, that Senate authorize the acceptance
on transfer of full credit for courses taken by
students at Notre Dame University at the Third
Year level during the academic year 1976-77,
for admission to U.B.C. in 1977-78, where the
courses concerned are applicable to degrees

Elections
Senate was informed that a letter had been received from the Student
Representative Assembly requesting a recount of the ballots cast in the recent
elections for student representatives on the Board of Governors.   A further letter
had been received from a candidate requesting a recount of the ballots cast in the
elections for student representatives on Senate.
The Agenda Committee had recommended that both the requests be referred
to the Committee on the Implementation of the Universities Act for consideration
and recommendation to Senate.
Mr. Swainson stated that the proceedings recommended by the Agenda
Committee would take a great deal of time.
Mr. Swainson   ) That Senate authorize that there be recounts
Mr. Black ) in both elections.
Dr. McGregor explained that the Agenda Committee felt that there had been
a misunderstanding in the case of the elections to the Board of Governors in that
the students had announced what they thought were the results before the Registrar 6763.
Wednesday, February 16, 1977.
Elections   (continued)
had released the official results.   In the case of the other request the committee
felt that the letter contained a misrepresentation of the facts and therefore it would
be better to refer the whole matter to the Committee on the Implementation of the
Universities Act.
Dr. McGregor   ) That the requests for recounts in the recent
Mr. Osborne      ) elections for student representatives on the
Board of Governors and on Senate be referred
to the Committee on the Implementation of the
Universities Act for consideration and
recommendation to Senate.
Following further discussion the motion to refer was put and carried.
Other business
Disruption of lectures
Mr. Funt referred to the disruption of lectures given on campus by a visiting
professor last fall and to the motion passed by Senate at that time requesting the
administration to explore procedures for the prevention of future occurrences.
Mr. Funt said he understood that dismissal proceedings were under way for some
of the participants in the disruptions and he expressed concern that the motion
passed by Senate in November 1976 was being used as justification for such
dismissals.
Mr. Moore stated that as a member of the committee established to explore
procedures for the prevention of disruptions of lectures on campus he would like
to assure Senate the the committee was not involved in dismissal activities. 6764.

APPENDIX  'C
Statement of Criteria for the  Interpretation of the Statute
as adopted by Senate at its meeting of May  14,   1958
1. The College should be in good standing with respect to a recognized
constituency of churches.
2. It should be the policy of the College to appoint to its regular teaching staff
only people who have at least the minimum standard of training normally
required in university work, i.e. university education to the Bachelor's
degree, followed by further study, preferably leading to another degree,
in the field of specialization.   For theological colleges this will normally be
in the field of theological studies.
3. The School should have at least four full-time properly qualified professors
giving their time to the work of post-college theological education, the degree
of this service to be calculated independently of the contribution of part-time
members of the Faculty.
4. It should be the policy of the College to operate predominantly at a
post-university level, i.e. it should normally require university graduation
as a prerequisite for admission to its regular courses of training in theology.
Though the College would have the right to admit some students to its regular
courses in theology without previous university training these should not
ordinarily constitute a majority of the student body.   In special cases where
the student is mature, students may be admitted without University graduation,
but Senior Matriculation should be required as a minimum.
5. The courses of training given in theology should be designed to be of a
standard which would be acceptable in the American Association of Theological
Schools, though without any obligation on the College to become a member of
this Association.
6. The College should have a sufficient degree of separateness and independence
from any other institutions:    (a) to identify its assets and its expenditures;
(b) to mark its specific functions as theological college;    (c) to give it a
governing body of its own.
7. It should have authority from the Government of the Province of British
Columbia to grant degrees in theology.
8. It should be the policy of the College to maintain library resources adequate
to the courses which it offers.
9. The College should be able to present evidence of its ability to conduct a
strong educational program, and of having sufficient stability and permanence
to maintain it.
