Chairman's remarks and related questions
President Strangway noted that the report of the Task Force on
Continuing Education had been distributed to Deans, Department Heads and
Members of Senate and that he looked forward to receiving comments on the
recommendations contained in the report.
President Strangway drew Senate's attention to the task force being
formed by Vice-President Gellatly to develop a policy for recycling issues
on campus for consideration by the Board of Governors.
President Strangway referred to significant changes that had been made
at the UBC Press and assured Senate that the Press was not closing down.
Dr. Elder asked if the Senate Budget Committee would be reporting on the
advice it is giving the President on the UBC Press.
The President responded that he would be pleased to have that
information included in the Budget Committee Report which would probably be
available in the spring.

Lists of candidates for degrees, as approved by the various Faculties
and Schools, were made available for inspection by Senate members prior to
the meeting.

Committee on Student Awards
In presenting the list of awards, Dr. Cook, Chairman of the Committee,
drew attention to the National Scholarships which will provide up to ten
awards of $6,500 each to outstanding students entering UBC from high
schools throughout Canada.
Dr. Cook
Mr. McMillan
In amendment:
Mr. Kaweski
Dean Lusztig
) That the new awards (listed in the Appendix)
)  be accepted subject to the approval of the
Board of Governors and that letters of
thanks be sent to the donors.
That the wording of the Calendar statement for
the National Scholarships be changed from "...
renewed for a further three years..." to "...
renewed for a further four years...", in order
to cover those students enrolled in five-year
programs.
Carried
The motion, as amended, was put and carried.
Conditions of acceptance of Student Awards
The following report had been circulated:
"(a) Conditions of Acceptance of Student Awards
Over the years, a succession of Senate Committees on Student
Awards have grappled with the terms of awards which include non
academic restrictions. On many occasions, Senate has referred
awards back to the Committee for further consideration.
Background
In  1979,  the  Ad  Hoc  Committee  on  Awards
recommended that Senate accept the following:
and  Scholarships
"Donors of university awards are strongly encouraged to provide
funds on an unrestricted basis to enable the university to
maintain flexibility in respect to changes in programs and other
circumstances. While not encouraging such awards, the university
will accept affirmative action awards which support students in
certain programs, of a particular sex, or of a particular minority
group. These awards shall be subject to the regulations of the
Human Rights Act of British Columbia." 9613.
November 15, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards
"(a) Conditions of Acceptance of Student Awards
Background  (continued)
In 1980, Senate adopted the following statement. This statement
currently appears in awards publications and materials directed
toward donors, and serves as the guideline for the Awards Office
staff:
"The University prefers to administer awards that are made
available without restrictions deemed to be discriminatory. It
will administer awards that define, in terms acceptable to Senate,
the eligibility of students to receive the award. Senate may
decline awards containing criteria that it deems to be contrary to
the interests of the University as an academic institution."
The Committee believes that a stronger statement is necessary. In
September the following statement was circulated to Deans and
others for comment.
Awards should be free of criteria based on personal
characteristics such as race, ancestry, place of origin, colour,
ethnic origin, sex, creed, age, marital status, family status,
sexual orientation or handicap. Notwithstanding the above, the
University may from time to time establish awards which are
specifically intended to improve participation of certain groups
of students.
The Committee reviewed the comments received and modified the
original proposal, incorporating terminology consistent with
current federal and provincial legislation.
Recommendat!on
The Committee unanimously recommends that the following statement
be adopted by Senate:
Awards should be free of criteria based on personal
characteristics such as race, national or ethnic origin, colour,
religion, political belief, sex, family or marital status, sexual
orientation, age, or mental or physical disability. This does not
preclude the University from establishing awards designed to
increase the participation of disadvantaged individuals or groups
including those who are disadvantaged on the grounds mentioned
above."
(b)  Definition of Scholarship Standing
Many of the entrance scholarships which we now offer are either
renewable or come with some form of guarantee of support so long
as the student's academic record is satisfactory. Although the
Senate has approved a minimum average of 75% for scholarships, our 9614.
November 15, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards
(b) Definition of Scholarship Standing  (continued)
requirements for renewals or guarantees are higher. Several of
the awards refer to scholarship standing, however, we have never
specifically defined the term.
Recommendation
The Committee recommends that the following statement, which
confirms the current practice, be included in the Calendar.
Scholarship standing - Where scholarships are renewable or
include a guarantee of continuing support subject to the student
maintaining scholarship standing, this shall be interpreted as
meaning that a student must successfully complete at least 90% of
a full program of study with an overall average of at least 80%,
or standing in the top 10% of his/her year and faculty.
(c) Wesbrook Scholars - for the information of Senate
When Senate approved the creation of the Wesbrook Scholars last
January, there was some discussion about excluding students in the
Faculty of Graduate Studies, while including students in
professional programs. Following the announcement of the first
winners, the Committee surveyed the Deans to ensure that the
approved terms were appropriate. The response was overwhelmingly
in support of the approved terms and consequently graduate
students will not be considered as candidates for the Wesbrook
Scholar designation.
During the course of the survey of Deans, the reference contained
in the terms of the Sherwood Lett Memorial Scholarship and others
to "students in professional programs" was questioned. The
Committee agreed that this term was misleading and has amended the
descriptions of the relevant awards to delete the reference to
professional programs and replace the reference with terminology
which indicates that the awards are open to students in
baccalaureate programs and the Faculties of Law, Medicine and
Dentistry."
(a) Conditions of Acceptance of student Awards
Dr. Cook      )  That the following statement be adopted
Mrs. Plant    )  by Senate:
Awards should be free of criteria based on personal
characteristics such as race, national or ethnic
origin, colour, religion, political belief, sex,
family or marital status, sexual orientation, age,
or mental or physical disability. This does not
preclude the University from establishing awards
designed to increase the participation of
disadvantaged individuals or groups including those
who are disadvantaged on the grounds mentioned
above. 9615.
November 15, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards
(a) Conditions of Acceptance of Student Awards (continued)
Dean Lusztig stated that he had gone through the awards currently listed
in the Awards and Financial Aid Calendar and found none to be
discriminatory in an offensive way. He suggested that if the current
statement which reads "The University prefers to administer awards..."
could be changed to "The University only administers awards..." this would
address any problem that arises. He did not feel it was productive to
issue a statement which goes against affirmative action and against the
support of disadvantaged students.
Dr. Hickling pointed out that the provisions of the recommendation were
based on the assumption that the University ought not to appear to lend
support either directly or indirectly to sentiments, however well meant,
that flow contrary to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms or the
provincial Human Rights Act. He stated that the choice of specific
grounds of discrimination included in the first sentence of the
recommendation are drawn directly from the Canadian Charter of Rights and
Freedoms and the provincial Human Rights Act. The second sentence affirms
the legitimacy of affirmative action programs.
Some members of Senate found the wording of the statement confusing. It
was suggested that the personal characteristics listed were so broadly
based that when linked with the affirmative action statement it appeared
to indicate that everyone was disadvantaged.
Dr. Birch responded to Dean Lusztig's question as to whether the problem
could be solved by amending the existing statement. He stated that
affirmative action is discriminatory, although positively so, and the
intent of the proposed statement is to say the University will consider 9616.
November 15, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards
(a) Conditions of Acceptance of Student Awards (continued)
accepting awards, the terms of which are discriminatory if that had a
positive intent.  Therefore Dean Lusztig's suggestion does not go far
enough if the intention is to permit or encourage affirmative action.
In response to a question, Dr. Cook stated that if Senate wished to
refer the recommendation back to the Committee, the Committee would seek
advice as to how disadvantaged groups might be identified and what kind of
a routine review of those so listed would take place.
With the permission of Senate, Mr. Byron Hender, Director of Awards and
Financial Aid, responded to queries concerning the administration of the
awards and the receipt of donor money in terms of the difference it would
make to donors giving their money under the new policy as opposed to the
existing policy. Mr. Hender explained that one of the implicit
assumptions in the recommendation is that the University should be
developing awards which provide a greater degree of flexibility than it
currently has, and that the University should provide opportunities for
academic restrictions rather than personal ones. He stated that there
were a number of awards which, at the time they were established, were
clearly intended to support disadvantaged groups such as women in Law, and
although last year there were more women than men in First Year Law, in
the Law profession itself women may still be under-represented. The
problem is at what point does the University appear to be discriminating
against this group. If the program were effective over time the
conditions would be equalized and the Committee did not want to have to go
back to donors to request a change in the terms of the award. 9617.
November 15, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards
(a) Conditions of Acceptance of Student Awards  (continued)
Mr. Hender thought that most donors understood the principles, and the
Committee felt that the proposed policy would not be a major barrier to
new donations. The Committee was trying to focus on the needs of the
University rather than the wishes of the donor, and to develop long term
strategies in order to respond to needs over time.
It was suggested that, given the fact that over time the definitions of
which groups are disadvantaged tend to change, it should be stipulated
that all donations made for scholarships have all their conditions removed
after a designated period of time.
Dr. Birch agreed that this would be a useful provision in the writing of
bequests and granting of gifts. He pointed out, however, that the
University frequently receives bequests after the donor has died and the
University would therefore have to seek a variance of the trust before it
could accept the bequest.
After further discussion, the motion was put and lost.
(b) Definition of Scholarship Standing
Dr. Cook      ) The Committee recommends that the following
Mrs. Plant    )  statement which confirms the current practice
be included in the Calendar:
Scholarship standing - Where scholarships are
renewable or include a guarantee of continuing
support subject to the student maintaining
scholarship standing, this shall be interpreted as
meaning that a student must successfully complete
at least 90% of a full program of study with an
overall average of at least 80%, or standing in the
top 10% of his/her year and faculty.
In response to a query, Mr. Hender explained that the current practice
was to make evaluations on a degree program basis, for example, students in 9618.
November 15, 1989
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards
(b) Definition of Scholarship Standing  (continued)
Fine Arts are ranked in the top 10% of students in Third or Fourth Year
Fine Arts and Family and Nutritional Sciences is based on its own unit, so
the degree code is used rather than the Faculty itself. It was agreed
that the words "...and degree programs" be added in order to clarify the
procedure.
Dean Webber pointed out that the definition of scholarship standing
could pose a potential problem for medical students in that more than 50%
of students entering the M.D. program have first class standing from
another Faculty, many of whom have scholarships which are contingent on
their maintaining academic standing. Clearly a significant number of
those students would not be in the top 10% of their program.
Mr. Hender stated that the Committee had not considered that there might
be renewable awards in the Faculty of Medicine and suggested that this
matter be looked into by the Committee.
Some members were of the opinion that the proposed statement
discriminated against part-time students and against those students
enrolled in 18 unit programs who take 15 units in the winter and 3 units
in the spring.
Dean Meisen objected to the 80% figure on the grounds that in some
programs such as the Canada Scholars Program, once a student falls below
scholarship level the student cannot re-enter. He felt that a significant
number of students awarded those scholarships would be disadvantaged,
particularly students from smaller communities where the environment is
not as competitive as in some of the larger communities.  He stated that 9619.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards
(b) Definition of Scholarship Standing  (continued)
often in First Year Engineering the marks of these students drop
substantially but in subsequent years the marks rise again. In his
opinion, a figure of 75% would be more reasonable.
In amendment:
Dean Meisen   )  That the figure of 80% be revised to
Dr. Auld      )  75%.
Objections to the amendment were raised on the grounds that these major
entrance scholarships are given to first class students and if these
students were not first class they ought not to have their scholarships
renewed.
In response to a query it was confirmed that the statement referred to
all renewable scholarships, not just the major entrance scholarships.
After further discussion, the amendment was put and lost.
The motion was then put and carried,
(c) Wesbrook Scholars
Dean Webber stated that since there were multitudinous programs in the
Faculty of Medicine, it would be preferable to specify the LL.B. the M.D.
and the D.D.S. program. Dr. Birch suggested that since it was intended
that only the baccalaureate program in the Faculty of Law be included it
was unnecessary to mention the Faculty of Law.
Dean Suedfeld argued that the decision that students in the Faculty of
Graduate Studies not be eligible for the Wesbrook Scholar designation was
discriminatory and ought to be reconsidered. 9620.

Report on Enrolment 1989-90 - for information
The report of the Registrar on enrolment for 1989-90 had been circulated

Dr. Elder drew Senate's attention to a communication from Campus
