Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Dr. Hall reported on items referred to the Curriculum Committee at
the April 29 and May 20 Senate meetings.
Referring to the submission by the Faculty of Arts, Dr. Hall said
that the committee were prepared to recommend approval of the new course
Political Science 427 and the change in course description of Psychology
404. However, the committee were not prepared to recommend approval of
the proposal of the joint offering of Economics 101 and Philosophy 100.
It was felt that there was a lack of information on subject matter content
of the proposed new offering.  Information was also needed on the consultations that had gone on and on the individual staffing arrangements
made for the programme.  The committee recommended that this proposal
should be brought back to the September meeting of Senate.

of courses.
The motion was put and carried. 5283

Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee (Continued)
At the previous Senate meeting the Faculty of Dentistry requested
that Sociology 100 should replace Sociology 200 as a required course in
the Dental Hygiene Programme. There was some discussion as to the
desirability of requiring this course of all students in the programme
in view of the possible lack of resources to offer it to all those
interested.  It was agreed that the proposal of the Faculty of Dentistry
be approved.
The committee recommended approval of the submissions of the Faculty
of Graduate Studies.
Dr. Hall    )
Mr. Osborne  )

Committee at the previous Senate meeting. The committee had discussed
this proposal with Dr. J. M. Kennedy, the chairman of an ad hoc committee 5284

Committee on Continuing Education
Dr. Ross asked that the recommendations of the committee be
received.  The first set of recommendations concerned general matters:
General Matters
1. The University of British Columbia should recognize that it has
growing responsibilities in three areas connected with continuing
education:
a) degree programmes for part-time students
b) programs of continuing education for professional groups
c) general programs carrying no credit towards degrees, though
of a level appropriate for University instruction, and
dealing with liberal and scientific studies public affairs,
and community projects.  (Areas b) and c) may include
certificate and diploma programs)
2. Since it is a complex but pressing matter to determine the need for
degree programs for part-time students and make appropriate recommendations, Senate should strike a committee to consult with the Faculties
about these matters and bring in a report as soon as possible.  The
committee should make known its work to the Academic Board for
Higher Education in British Columbia.  (The remainder of this
document says nothing about degree programs for part-time students
except to make provision for the administration of current offerings.) 5285
Wednesday, June 10, 1970
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Continuing Education
General Matters (Continued)
3. As an incentive to teachers of continuing education programs, it
should be accepted that their academic contributions to such programs
will be given full weight in connection with career-recommendations
in their Faculties, Departments and Schools.
4. The requirements of continuing education should receive attention
in the building plans of the University for the 1970's.
5. Care should be taken to avoid unwarranted or unnecessary duplication
of programs given by other institutions.
Dr. Ross    )    That thz rzcommzndations undzr thz hzading
Dr. Hardwick )    "geneAa£ matteAi" be accepted.
Some members felt that this should be referred to the Faculties
for comments before Senate took any action. After further discussion
the motion was put and carried.
The second set of recommendations concerned budgeting:
Budgeting
In budgeting for continuing education, the University should
observe the following principles:
1. Fees should cover at least the direct costs of instruction
(including the use of supplies and equipment), the University
providing, where appropriate and possible, the full institutional
costs of administration and buildings.
2. Base support for new programs and for experiment in continuing
education should be accepted as part of the University's investment in this field. 5286
Wednesday, June 10, 1970
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Continuing Education
Budgeting (Continued)
3. Long-range planning should permit priorities to be established between
the different areas of continuing education with respect to their
claims on the funds available.
4. To allow the University administration to prepare a consolidated
budget for continuing education, Faculties should indicate in their
annual budgets expenditures and revenues relating to continuing
education programs.
Dr. Ross   )     That thz recommendations under the heading
Dean White )      "budgeting" be accep-ted.
It was pointed out that these recommendations had been made in
order to meet academic considerations in this field of university
activity but that the final decisions and implementation were a matter
for the Board.
The motion was put and carried.
The third set of recommendations concerned the organization of
Continuing Education:
The Organization of Continuing Education
Continuing education should be so organized as to provide efficient
administration and coordination of programs and services, also vigorous
leadership in the field. With these broad goals in mind, as well as the
effectiveness of the present arrangements and jurisdictions, it is
recommended that there be a twofold form of organization:  through a Centre
for Continuing Education and Faculty (or School) Divisions of Professional
Continuing Education. It is further recommended that there be a
President's Coordinating Committee on Continuing Education. 5287
Wednesday, June 10, 1970
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Continuing Education
The Organization of Continuing Education(Continued)
1. Centre for Continuing Education
a) The Centre would replace the existing Department of University
Extension and administer its programs and services. The Centre
would administer those degree programs currently being offered
for part-time students; also, it would administer all non-credit
programs, with the exception of those which Faculties or Schools
by present arrangement or future agreement elect to administer
themselves.
b) The Director of the Centre should be its chairman, and he should
act on the advice and with the consent of a Council. The
composition of the Council should be such as to allow for
representation from those staffing the Centre, Faculties
cooperating with the Centre in offering programs, instructors
of Centre programs, students enrolled in its programs, and the
community.
c) Liaison between the Centre and Faculties, Schools, and Departments should be maintained through committees for each program
area.  Faculty members should have majority membership on these
committees, and faculty members should supervise the content
of programs. 5288

2. Faculty (or School) Divisions of Professional Continuing Education
a) As in the cases of the Health Sciences and Commerce, these
Divisions would be maintained for the continuing education of
graduates in professional fields and other persons qualified
for the specialized training offered.
b) Faculties should have the right to decide whether professional
continuing education programs should be administered by themselves or by the Centre for Continuing Education or jointly.
Transfer of programs to or from the Centre should be by agreement allowing sufficient time for administrative adjustment.
3» President's Coordinating Committee on Continuing Education
a) The Senate Committee on Continuing Education should be disbanded
and its place taken by a President's Committee.  The membership
should consist of representatives of the Centre for Continuing
Education, the Faculty Divisions, the Senate, the community and
such other persons as the President might choose. The Chairman
should be appointed by the President.
b) The chief functions of this University Committee should be as
follows:
i) to exercise leadership in developing and assessing University
policies on continuing education;
ii) to make, when appropriate, recommendations about the
responsibility for the operation of programs;
iii) to foster research on continuing education and evaluation
of programs. 5289
