The President reported that he had written to the Provincial Government
and to the University Resources Council.    He stated that the Provincial
Government had already agreed to an additional $400,000 at their last
sitting of the Legislature and that more liberal allowances would be
possible in the Canada Loans.

Committee on Academic Building Needs
Dr. Kenny introduced the report explaining that the basic
recommendations were for facilities required by the Fall of 1971
and its judgement on the priority position that should cover the :»
Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5067
Committee on Academic Building Needs (Continued)
decisions to begin construction taking into account the money the
University could expect to receive from the Provincial Government in
the next two years, which was somewhere around $17 Million.
The report recommended that the board of Governors demonstrate
forcefully to the Government that all the buildings recommended must
be completed if the University is to cope with projected enrolment
figures and if it is to maintain standards of excellence particularly
in those areas where this University is either the only or the leading
institution offering graduate and professional degrees and carrying
on advanced research.
The buildings recommended as being required by the Fall of 1971,
and their estimated costs, were as follows:
Millions
Buchanan Classroom and Study Space Extension 3.69
Buchanan Office Building Extension 2.80
Computing Centre Extension .12
Department of Civil Engineering Renovations .20
Department of Geology Extension .93
Department of Mechanical Engineering - Stage I .50
Faculty of Law Building 3.00
Multi-Purpose Science - Laboratory 3.50
Sedgewick Library - Study Space 1.70
TOTAL   16.44
The Committee reported that after considerable debate it had
decided that the following facilities be left off the priority list:
Millions
Mechanical Engineering Building 3.75
Multi-Purpose Science - Other 3.46
Sedgewick Library - Stack 1.60
TOTAL     8.81 Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5068
Committee on Academic Building Needs (Continued
The need for these facilities waa not disputed but it was considered
that whilst they did reflect genuine needs, they were not as urgent as
those items included in the immediate priority list.
Other facilities considered by the Committee which may be required
by the Fall of 1974 were:
Agriculture-Forestry Extension
Building for Library Administration and Processing and School
of Librarianship
Completion of North and East Wings of Biological Sciences
Department of University Extension Facility
Education Building Extension, including an Education Library
Engineering Common Block
Multi-Purpose Science - Stage II
Physical Sciences (Chemistry and Physics) and Mathematics
Building(s)
Science Library
Social Science Building, thereby freeing a large part of the
Henry Angus Building for use by the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration
Undergraduate Library - Stage II
Storage Building for Library
Aa a matter of policy, the committee recommended that after the
Fall of 1970 the University should not be prepared to shoehorn into
existing or new portable space any additional students, even as a
temporary expedient, without the necessary guarantees of capital funds
to construct the buildings required by the Fall of 1974.
The Committee had been hampered by the lack of long-range physical
planning and by the lack of guidelines for the academic future of the
University.
The Committee stressed that it was essential that the University
proceed with the design and construction of all the buildings in the
priority category forthwith. The plans were already either prepared or
being prepared for all these buildings with the exception of the Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5069
Committee on Academic Building Needs (Continued)
Computing Centre expansion and the Department of Geology extension and
the Committee therefore recommended that working drawings be prepared
as soon as possible for these facilities.
Other recommendations of the Committee were that the continuing
work of the Committee should focus specifically on the size and nature
of the other buildings and bring forth recommendations on these buildings
no later than the June meeting of Senate in 1970; should determine how
the needs for academic and non-academic buildings are related, and
consider such matters as the proper balance of permanent and semi-permanent
buildings and the economies and diseconomies involved in semi-permanent
buildings.
The report stated that the needs of the University are associated
with biggest absolute enrolments or with a building situation which, if
left uncorrected, would have serious repercussions on the quality of
academic education. In terms of enrolment or use, the Library, Arts and
Science have the highest priorities. However, the Departments of Geology,
Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Law have
strong claims because of totally inadequate space that has a deleterious
effect upon the quality of education offered to their students. The
academic service of the Computing Centre is similar to that of the
Library in that its physical facility, the computing machine, serves
the needs of faculty and students, and its staff assists the faculty and
students in the use of the computer. The long-range plans of the Computing
Centre, approved by the Board of Governors in 1966, call for the addition
of further central computer equipment in 1970/71 in order to meet the Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5070
Committee on Academic Building Needs (Continued)
needs from increased usage by academic departments as well as from the
Health Sciences hospital, the TRIUMF accelerator, administration, and
the Library.
The specific reasons for the need of each building were included
in the report to indicate why the recommended facilities should have
a capital resource advantage.
Dr. Kenny )      That the report oh the CommiXXee on
Dr. Hall  )      Academic Building Needs be horwarded
to the President and to the Board oh
Governors hor their consideration
and decision and that the hull transcript
oh the debate within Senate also be
horwarded to the President and to the
Board oh Governors hor their consideration
and action.
Strong objections were raised at the recommendations concerning
the exclusion of the proposed Sedgewick Library in the form previously
approved by the Client's Committee.  Such a building could be built
just as cheaply as an Arts building but it was considered more useful
for students wanting a place to study to have the space located in a
library building where books are available. It was felt that the
number of students using the library was increasing by a faster rate
than the actual increase in enrolment, partly because of a lessening
emphasis on lectures and a greater emphasis on assignments.
Further objections were raised to the proposal to exclude Sedgewick
Library stack space. It was felt that one of the reasons for the lack
of queues for books was the lack of books and to create the necessity
to store books elsewhere would only aggravate the situation, even
though it was realized that this would not occur until after 1971. Wednesday, June 25, 19b9.
5071
Committee on Academic Building Needs (Continued)
It was pointed out the study space for graduate students had been
overlooked by the committee. The report listed the main users of the
undergraduate Library as undergraduates of the faculties of Arts, Education
and Commerce whereas in addition to an expected increaae of 33% in the
number of people using the Library by 1971, it is expected that there
will also be an extra 600 graduate students in Arts, Education and Commerce
and related fields that use the Library extensively, and to a large
extent those students have no place to sit other than in the carrels of
the Library.
Mr. Munton   )   That the motion be amended by the
Dr. McDowell  )   addition oh the Undergraduate Library
Stage X as part oh the priority list.
It was also pointed out that the funds for the Computing Centre
should not have been included in the capital budget under discussion
since this came under the budget of the Faculty of Science.
Objections were raised to the proposal for an Extension to the
Geology Building since the present building is so near collapse. It
waa suggested that it would be preferable to have the whole of Geology
planned at once and also that it be sited near Geophysics and the other
earth sciences.
Other general criticisms of the report were: phase-building,
since it was expensive in the long run; lack of consideration of apace
needs in the Library for compulsory reading materials as the student
population expanded. It was also requested that the Museum of
Anthropology be included in the facilities required by 1974. Attention Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5072
Committee on Academic Building Needs (Continued)
was also drawn to the fact that there was a difference of 10,000 net
sq. ft. between the area recommended by the Client's Committee and that
recommended by the Committee on Academic Building Needs for the Faculty
of Law. It appeared that with the reduction there was no allowance for
the inevitable expansion and growth of needs for book-space.
It was stressed that the buildings listed on Page 5068 were not listed
in order of priority; it was also stressed that it was not certain that
the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration would be housed on
the top floor of the Henry Angus building for all time.
It was suggested that it might be more useful to have a single
committee rather than a Clients' and Users' Committee. This, it was
thought, would expedite planning, particularly if an architect could be
involved in the early discussions and be available to make preliminary
sketches from the start.
A protest waa raised at the lack of funds available for Mechanical
Engineering.
It was suggested that the University should not decide on the
amount of money it was likely to receive and then try and reduce its
needs. However, a Contingency Plan was suggested and it waa proposed
that this should be drawn up quite separately and submitted to the Board
of Governors.
One member of Senate gave his opinion that the Committee, working
within the constraints of anticipated government support by way of Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5073
Committee on Academic Building Needs (Continued)
capital funds, had in effect planned for minimum deterioration of
academic standards.
The Committee was asked if consideration had been given to the
integration of study space and storage space in the undergraduate
library.    Storage of the 200,000 volumes proposed for the library would
cost only $500,000 whereas the cost of stack space postponed by the
Committee was $1.6 Million.    It was suggested that the Sedgewick Library's
present holdings of 80,000 books could be stored in a small part of the
study area proposed by the Committee.
The following amendment was proposed.
Dr. Friedman   ) That the report go back to the CommiXXee hor
Dr. Belshaw     ) reconsideration in the light oh the discussion
that had been held by Senate with particular
reherence to specific items, Such as the
Library.   The ComnuXtee would horward the
amended report to the President.    (It would
not be necessary hoi the report to be presented
to Senate again.)
Carried
Dr. Gibson   ) That the Committee in reporting to the Board
Dr. Cavers   ) oh Governors, remind the Board oh Senate's
motion oh September, 1968 concerning the need
to limit enrolment until adequate h^oilLXies
are provided.
Since the Committee on Enrolment Policy would not be in a position
to submit its report until September, it was agreed that this recommendation
be withdrawn for the time being. Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5074
Tributes Committee
Dean Curtis    ) That the title oh Chancellor Emeritus be
Dean Shaw       ) conherred on Mr. J. M. Buchanan in acknowledgement
oh his services to the University.
Carried
Curriculum Committee
Dr. Hall confirmed that the Curriculum Committee had approved the
new courses and course changes recommended by the Faculty of Graduate
Studies, in Commerce and Business Administration, French, German and
Linguistics, listed in Appendix A. of the previous Senate Minutes.
Senate Liaison Committee on Planning Permanent Buildings
The Chairman explained that the committee had requested a revision
to its terms of reference to allow it to engage in continuing liaison
with the Department of Physical Plant, in order to be kept abreast on
all proposed and current building and planning projects on the campus,
and also to allow it to consult wherever appropriate with relevant clients'
committees and their respective architects from the inception of discussions
concerning new proposed buildings and development programmes.
Dr. Oberlander    )       That Senate approve the hollowing additions
Dr. Gibson )       to the terms oh reh<Lrence oh the Senate
Liaison Committee on Planning Permanent
Buildings.
1.    The Committee is primarily concerned with
discussing and then inhorming Senate on the
academic implications oh current and proposed
planning h°i new permanent academic buildings,
groups oh buildings and the space between them.
The Committee is anxious to engage in
continuing liaison with the department oh
Physical Plant in order to be kept abreast
on all proposed and current building and
planning projects on the campus. Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5075
Senate Liaison Committee on Planning Permanent Buildings (Continued)
2.   The Committee is anxious to be allowed to
consult wherever appropriate with relevant
client's committees and their respective
architects fjAom the inception oh discussions
concerning new and proposed buildings and
development programmes.
Carried
It was requested that the committee assist in seeing that the
proposed users of new buildings are consulted in the early stages since
they are potential clients. In the past Clients Committees have not
always included the representatives of all people that use the buildings.
New Programmes Committee

The Committee recommended approval of this proposal subject to the
following conditions: Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5076
New Programmes Committee
Proposal of the Faculty of Graduate Studies to offer a Ph.D.
degree in Community and Regional Planning (Continued)
(1)   That the School of Community and Regional Planning be
authorized to offer the Ph.D. degree in the areas of its
specialization, namely planning for:
(a) urban structure;
(b) regional structure; and
(c) transportation and support systems.
(ii)  That all candidates proceeding to a Ph.D. hold a Master's
degree in Planning, or the equivalent.
(iii) That the School, in consultation with the Dean of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies be requested to prepare a
report reviewing the programme at the end of three years.
The Committee also recommended that in view of the size of the
faculty the School would be well advised to limit its enrolment
in the Ph.D. degree programme to a small number of students.
Dean Cowan )       That Senate concur in the
Dr. oberlander   )       recommendations oh the New Programmes
Committee in recommending approval oh
the proposal oh the Faculty oh
Graduate Studies to ohher a Ph.d.
degree in Community and Regional
Planning subject to the conditions
as outlined.
Carried Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5077
Proposals of the Faculties
Dean Cowan )       That the items rehVDved to the
Dr. Oberlander    )        Curriculum Committee by the Agenda
Committee listed in Appendix 'B' be
approved subject to no objections
being raised by members oh Senate to
the Curriculum Committee by July 11,
1969 and subject to the approval oh
the Curriculum Committee.
Carried
Faculty of Arts
(i)  Proposal to grant exemption from the B.A. requirements in Science
for students who pass the placement examination in Biology
A proposal that students who pass the placement examination in
Biology (administered by the Faculty of Science) be granted exemption
from the B.A. requirement in Science, was presented.
Attention was drawn to the following regulation of the Faculty
of Science in this connection:
"Students who have satisfactorily completed Biology 11
or the equivalent may write a placement examination in
general biology during the week of registration. If
this examination is passed, the student will be granted
exemption from Biology 101 and may subsequently be
admitted to courses requiring Biology 101 as a
prerequisite."
(1969-70 Calendar, Page T55)
Concern was expressed at any further reductions in the overall
breadth of education required for the B.A. degree; mathematics and
the foreign language requirements had already been reduced. Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5078
Proposals of the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
(i) Proposal to grant exemption from the B.A. requirements in Science
for students who pass the placement examination in Biology (Continued)
Members of Senate were shocked at the implication that Biology
11 could be considered equivalent to Biology 101. It was suggested
that if this were so, the course should not be offered at the University.
It was pointed out that very few students, were, in fact, able to
pass the placement examination.
It was agreed that the proposal be referred back to the Faculty
of Arts for reconsideration.
It was suggested that a First Year Science course was primarily
designed for Science students and that it should not be assumed that
the same course was suitable for a non-science student.    It was requested
that consideration be given to such courses being tailored to the
requirements of the students.
(ii) New Arts II Programme
Dr. Hall explained that the proposal to continue Arts II had been
referred to the Curriculum Committee.
The Curriculum Committee found that the course content had not been
as carefully considered as seemed reasonable and that not only were those
faculty members intimately concerned unable to work together on the
curriculum over the summer, but also no firm commitment had been made by
a sufficient number of faculty to staff the programme. Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
5079
Proposals of the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
(ii) New Arts II Programme (Continued)
Dr. Hall )     That the proposed New Arts II programme
Dr. Morrison   )     be de{erred to a later meeting oh Senate
to give the sponsors ample time to develop
the programme in a way that would enhance
the chances oh its success.
After further discussion in which it was made clear that the
motion would in effect delay the implementation of Arts II for at
least one year, the motion was carried.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
(i)      Proposal to establish a Dean's Honour List
Dean White   ) That a dean's Honour List be established
Mr. Bowers   ) by the Faculty oh Commerce and Business
Administration in recognition oh superior
academic perhormance, the hollowing
conditions to apply:
1. The list shall include the top &ive
per cent oh the class in each year.
2. The list shall be prominently displayed,
3. The list hoi the Fourth Year shall be
based on the total standing in the two
hinal years.
4. A student who ouaH&Les hoi the Fourth
Year list shall have the ho-cX noted on
his ohlicial record so that it may appear
on any transcript oh his record.
Carried
(ii) Proposal to institute the designation of "Licentiate" for
certain kinds of post-graduate programmes, and proposed
regulations; that successful candidates in the post-graduate
programme in Accounting be awarded a "Licentiate in Accounting"
At its meeting of February 26, 1969, Senate approved the
recommendation of the New Programmes Committee that the programme Wednesday, June 25, 1969.

Proposals of the Faculties
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
(ii) Proposal to institute the designation of "Licentiate" for
certain kinds of post-graduate programmes, and proposed
regulations; that successful candidates in the post-graduate
programme in Accounting be awarded a "Licentiate in Accounting"
for professional training in accountancy proposed by the Faculty
of Commerce and Business Administration be approved, but requested
that the Faculty be asked to consider offering a Diploma in
Accounting on completion of the programme in place of the B.Acct.
degree.
Having examined the idea of a Diploma in Accounting the
Faculty concluded that a diploma seriously under-assessed the
level of achievement of the post-graduate programme in Accounting,
and recommended the granting of a "Licentiate". The Faculty also
felt that this designation might well be used in other professional
fields.
The Faculty recommended the following general regulations for
Licentiate Programmes:
1. Entrants to the programme for a licentiate must have at
least a baccalaureate degree of a recognized university.
2. Not less than 60% of courses in the programme shall be
credit courses which are normally available in degree
programmes.
3. The programme shall require full-time attendance at the
University.
4. The programme shall be of a minimum of 30 units (normally
a minimum of two years' academic work with appropriate
reductions where part of the required programme has
already been completed.
5. All licentiate programmes offered and all changes thereto
must be approved by the Senate.

Faculty of Medicine
Dean McCreary informed Senate that the Faculty of Medicine waa
considering a proposal that the Third Year of the degree programme
be reduced to 24 weeks in length in order that the Fourth Year might
be a 60-week term to include the internship normally taken after
completion of the M.D. degree studies.  The effect of this change
would be to include internship in the University programme and thereby
reduce by approximately a year the time required for a medical student
to be eligible for professional certification. The Dean asked for
Senate's approval in principle, explaining that a concrete proposal
would be submitted to the Senate by the Faculty of Medicine in
September.
Dean McCreary    ) That Senate approve in principle the
Dr. Friedman     ) proposal oh the Faculty oh Medicine

Progress report by Chairman of ad hoc Committee to Consider the Student
Brief "Fair Weather or Foul"
Dean Shaw mentioned that the sub-committee of the Faculty Council was
still working on the proposals contained in the ad hoc Committee's report
"Faculty Council and Student Discipline". Wednesday, June 25, 1969
5086
Progress report by Chairman of ad hoc Committee to Consider the Student
Brief "Fair Weather or Foul" (Continued)
He then referred to the decision to add eight students to Senate and
reported that the Committee had not yet had an opportunity to consult with
the A.M.S. on Senate's request that consideration be given to the possibility
of some of the student senators representing individual faculties.
Dean Shaw reported that the ad hoc Committee of Senate and the Student
Committee with which they had been meeting had found several difficulties:
1. There was a wide divergence of opinion on the issues still
under discussion.
2. With the end of term dispersal of both students and faculty
it had not been possible for the ad hoc Committee to initiate
discussion on outstanding matters, particularly since it had
promised that it would not hold meetings unless the student
group could be present.
3. The matters under discussion and the recommendations did not
fall entirely within the purview of Senate under the terms
of the present Universities Act.
4. The terms of reference of the ad hoc Committee included
discussion with the A.M.S. Committee and with others; the
Committee had not, as yet, made very wide use of this mechanism
but at this stage, Dean Shaw felt it might be appropriate for
the President (and Chairman of Senate) to meet with the
President of the A.M.S. and some members of the student
committee to see whether the present modus operandi under
the aegis of Senate was the most appropriate for dealing with
the issues still under discussion.
It was requested that in matters involving curriculum and appointments
of members of Faculty that both the Faculties and the Faculty Association
be formally consulted by the ad hoc Committee. Wednesday, June 25, 1969.
