Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
It was reported that the Curriculum Committee's report on the
proposal from the Faculty of Graduate Studies concerning new courses in
Paediatrics and Creative Writing would be submitted to the next meeting
of Senate.
New Programmes Committee
Proposal to offer a Ph.D. programme in Romance Studies (Spanish)
The Committee had discussed this proposal with Professor Livermore
and had agreed that Spanish Studies should be dealt with more intensively
in this University. The Committee was concerned with the small number of
Faculty members in the Department who were available to undertake this work.
The Committee reported that it has been the growing practice to confine
the degree programme at the graduate level in languages to the field of
Literature and the Committee felt that in the case of the Department of
Hispanic Studies the same limitation should apply. Wednesday, November 12, 1969
New Programmes Committee (Continued)
Proposal to offer a Ph.D. programme in Romance Studies (Spanish)
Mr. Bourne   ) That a Ph.d. programme in Romance Studies
Dean Shaw     ) (Spanish Literature) be o^eAed by the
Faculty oh Graduate Studies, provided that
no more students be enrolled in the programme
until the department oh Hispanic and Italian
Studies appoints at least two additional
Faculty members with appropriate research
qualihications in Spanish literature.
In the discussion concern was expressed that the recommendation to
offer a Ph.D. programme in Romance Studies (Spanish Literature) was
somewhat restrictive and would be interpreted as offering Spanish
Literature from Spain only whereas in fact it would be from Spain and
South America.  It was also stated that with the present course structure
it was necessary to study Spanish culture in South America.
In amendment:
Dr. Kenny )      That the words "Spanish Literature" be
Dr. Brown )      deleted hi°m the title oh the programme and
that the words "Hispanic Literature and
Culture" be substituted.
After some discussion it was agreed that "Hispanic" should be
substituted for "Spanish", but the word "Culture" might imply that
Senate would endorse work in Spanish art, etc., in this Department
rather than others.
The amendment was then re-stated as:
That the words "Spanish Literature" be
deleted and the words "Hispanic Literature"
be inserted.
The amendment was carried.
The motion as amended was carried. Wednesday, November 12, 1969
Reports of Committees of Senate (Continued)
Ad hoc Committee on Admissions Tests of Professional Faculties
Senate, at its meeting of March 26, 1969, had asked that an ad hoc
committee study a proposal of the Faculty of Law that all applicants
to the Faculty be required to write the Law Schools Admission Test.
Dr. McClean presented the report of the committee.
Dr. McClean )     That Senate approve the proposal oh the
Dr. Kelly  )     Faculty oh Law to introduce the Law Schools
Admission Test as an addition to current
selection procedures, applicable to students
seeking admission to the First Year oh the
Faculty oh Law hoi September,  1970, and
that the Faculty be requested to report to
Senate on tie ehh^-cXiveness oh the Test as
a predictor oh success in the study oh Law
and on other values derived  ^Aom its use
when suhhicJ-WX experience has been obtained
on this campus to permit adequate evaluation
oh the Test.
Senate was assured that there would be a careful study made of the
consequences of applying the Test.
In amendment:
Dr. Kenny   ) That afXer the word "September 1970" insert
Dr. Scott   ) "but the Test results not be used hoi
selection at this time."
The amendment was lost.
It was then argued that immediate application of the Test as
proposed would invalidate any evaluation of it.
Dr. Gray     ) That the second paragraph oh the motion
Dr. Kenny    ) requesting a report on an evaluation oh the
ehl^oXiveness oh the Test be deleted.
The amendment was lost. Wednesday, November 12, 1969
Report of Committees of Senate (Continued)
Ad hoc Committee on Admissions Tests of Professional Faculties
Mr. O'Brien   ) That a third paragraph be added requiring
Mr. Davies     ) that an Appeals Committee be established
comprising at least two students ^Aom The
Faculty oh Law.
Dean Curtis reported that the Admissions Committee had reviewed its
decisions on request and would continue to consider appeals.
The amendment was lost.
The motion was carried.
Long-Range Objectives Committee
Dr. Volkoff reported on the suggestions of the Agenda Committee
regarding the following recommendations from the Long-Range Objectives
Recommendation 5
That all proposals h°K curriculum changes have attached to them,
under the sanction oh the Board oh Governors, their estimated cost,
and that Senate take this into consideration in recommending
The Agenda Committee suggested that this recommendation be referred
to the New Programmes Committee for a report on its feasibility.
Recommendation 6.
That a guide to interdepartmental programmes be prepared as one
oh the separately published divisions oh the Calendar, and be made
available to all students behore registration.    Such a guide
should include inhormation about trans herability between programmes
in e^ect, a guide hoi using the regulations. Wednesday, November 12, 1969
Reports of the Committees of Senate (Continued)
Long-Range Objectives Committee  (Continued)
Dr. Belshaw was asked to explain what the Committee had in mind with
regard to this recommendation.  He explained that it was really a request
for the provision of a document which "should be a guide on how to beat
the system". Students often asked why they could not elect certain study
programmes which were in fact permissible but not explicitly stated in
the calendar.
It was suggested that before adding another section to the Calendar
it might be helpful to see a draft or specific proposal of what material
might be in it and perhaps this should be included in the General
Information bulletin.
It was agreed that a draft would have to be prepared and a small
committee might be created to do this.
The Chairman suggested that this be referred to the Registrar who
could appoint a Committee and report later to Senate. This was agreed.
Recommendation 7
That under Senate auspices a study be made oh existing general
education requirements and courses, including broad elementary
discipline courses, advanced non-specialist courses and Arts 1,
with a view to co-ordinating them within a university-wide
program that can provide general courses in any one oh the jJoua
undergraduate years, common core courses, and a hour-year general
education course.    In this study consideration should be given
to experience in this {yield at Stanhord University, the University
oh Toronto, and other universities.   We tfuAtheA recommend that
the committee undertaking the study examine the recommendations
in Guideposts to Innovation   h°i °- comprehensive and £cexib£e
system oh curriculum, providing a variable balance between the
elements oh specialist and general education. Wednesday, November 12, 1969
Report8 of the Committees of Senate (Continued)
Long-Range Objectives Committee
The Agenda Committee recommended that Senate discuss this problem
with a view to deciding how this study could be set up. The Long-Range
Objectives Committee had not the time to study this matter in detail
and suggested that an ad hoc committee be commissioned to do so.
At this point Dr. Finn stated that he had not envisaged a spate
of ad hoc committees which he believed would delay interminably final
decisions on the recommendations.
Dr. Finn  )     That the recommendations oh the
Mr. Trevino )      Agenda Committee be accepted with
a clear understanding that Senate
will hold a special meeting as
early as convenient in February to
discuss and vote on the Long-Range
Objectives Report.
After it was pointed out that recommendation 7 was the only one to
be referred to an ad hoc committee, the motion was withdrawn.
Recommendation 9
That an assessment oh classes given in residence be made by Senate
as soon as possible, and that a decision be made early in the
academic year 1970/71 whether to continue the experiment, to terminate
it, or to enlarge it into a system oh residential collegiate
The Agenda Committee suggested that the Faculty of Arts be asked
to include an opinion on this recommendation when Faculty opinions on
the Report were made available to Senate.
Recommendation 29
That Senate request the Faculty oh Graduate Studies to report on
the present state oh implementation oh the recommendations
contained in A Review oh Graduate Study at the University oh
British Columbia, 1966, and to suggest resolutions which would be
suitable hoi Senate to adopt in order to increase the ehh^-ctiveness
oh graduate work at this university. Wednesday, November 12, 1969
Reports of the Committees of Senate (Continued)
Long-Range Objectives Committee
The Agenda Committee recommended that the Faculty of Graduate
Studies be asked to give an opinion on this item.
Recommendation 30
That Senate request the Faculty oh Graduate Studies, in co-operation
with the Faculty Association, to study tie prohessional preparation
oh university {acuity members, to relate this to graduate programs
at the University oh British Columbia, and to suggest appropriate
policy recommendations to Senate hoi approval.
It was suggested that this be referred to the Committee of Deans
for reference to their Faculties on means that might be taken to improve
teaching throughout the University.
Recommendation 33
That the Senate Committee on Continuing Education be requested to
study the h^o^tbUXty oh a College oh Continuing Education as
rapidly as possible, in the light oh Senate decisions on the
remainder oh this report.
The Agenda Committee thought it inappropriate to discuss this
recommendation prior to consideration of other recommendations concerning
the administrative structure of the University as discussion of the
future of Continuing Education cannot be separated from discussion of
the future of the University.
Recommendation 39
That Senate establish a standing Long Range Objective Committee
with the h°l^oM<-n9  function*:
(a) to maintain a continuous review oh the long range objectives
oh the University oh British Columbia, in tie context oh the
provincial and national educational system, and to recommend
changes and new objectives to Senate as conditions and data
(b) to initiate studies in depth oh particular questions
ahhtcXing broad university policy.    For this purpose, the
O^-ice oh Academic Planning should be the administrative
and research arm oh the committee, and its budget and
responsibilities, should be designed accordingly. Wednesday, November 12, 1969
Reports of the Committees of Senate (Continued)
Long-Range Objectives Committee
It was felt that this recommendation could not be considered until
the full report had been discussed and Faculties had been able to bring
in their reports.
Dr. Volkoff  )    That the recommendations oh the Agenda
Dr. McGregor )    Committee be accepted.
Dr.  Finn     ) That Senate hold a special meeting on Saturday,
Mr. Persky ) February 7,   1970, to begin serious discussion
oh the Report oh the Long-Range Objectives
and that the Faculties be ohhtdally notified
through their deans that this meeting will be
held and that they be urged to consider the
Report behore that time and h*~nd appropriate
means oh communicating their ideas to Senate.
Concern was expressed about the date of the meeting because
Faculties had already been given a deadline and it was understood that
the method of expression to Senate would be through Senate representatives.
February 7 was perhaps too late.
However, it was agreed that Faculties required a reasonable time
to discuss the Report and that a Senate Meeting in January would not
permit of sufficient time.
The motion was put and carried.
It was decided that the Nominating Committee should select a
Committee to deal with Recommendation 7. Wednesday, November 12, 1969

Mr. Persky )     That the O^ice oh Academic Planning
Dr. Gray   )      be requested, to do a study oh the
sociological background oh U.B.C. Students.
It was thought that this would be an interesting and possibly

Dr. Friedman asked that Senate return to the agenda item "other
business" and consider the following motion:
Dr. Friedman )    That Senate consider and discuss the
Dr. Scott   )    implications and advisability oh
expressing its endorsement oh campus
activities such as the proposed
Viet Nam Moratorium.
A lively discussion followed. Although there was strong support
for the position that Senate should not involve itself in political
issues there were arguments that most, if not all, of Senate's actions
had political overtones. It was asserted that Senate must confine
itself to issues that properly fall within its duties and responsibilities
as set out in legislation. Matters such as the Moratorium, although
of concern to members of Senate individually, could not be construed
as the proper business of Senate.
The motion was lost.
The meeting was adjourned at 11:20 p.m.
