Wednesday, September 10, 1975.
Business arising  from the Minutes
Report of the ad hoc Committee on the Enrolment of Women Undergraduate
and Graduate Students    (continued)
The chair of the committee further recommended that a committee on the status of
women at U.B.C. be continued and that its terms of reference be expanded to
include a more detailed examination of admissions procedures, instructors'
attitudes towards women, women's studies programs, continuing education
programs, student employment and placement, scholarships, physical education
programs and facilities, the Office of the Dean of Women, and such other areas
that may be of concern to women on the campus."
It was explained in the report that the mandate given the committee was to
discover ways of increasing the enrolment of women in graduate and undergraduate
programs when their numbers were below their representation in the student
body as a whole.
Attention had been given to those Faculties where the enrolment of women
was significantly low and those where the percentage of women had increased
substantially over the last ten years.   Members were interviewed from various
Faculties and Schools and discussions were held with the Assistant Dean of
Women and with individual women students.   Publications from other Canadian
universities regarding the status of women were examined, as well as a recent
study of women students.
Almost all Faculty interviewed expressed concern over the quality of
counselling in many of the high schools.  Many counsellors were not familiar with
career opportunites in many areas, and more specifically, with the prerequisite
courses required to follow certain career choices.
It was reported that girls were often counselled out of taking "hard sciences"
such as physics and mathematics at the high school level and, if they expressed 6416.

an interest in science, were encouraged to take biology.   Many counsellors were
completely unaware that women would be considered for admission into a faculty
that was seen to be traditionally male.
Some Faculties reported that women who graduated in non-traditional fields
had no difficulty finding employment;   others, however, felt there was a problem.
Financing of education presented difficulties for women since summer jobs
were less lucrative and more difficult to obtain.   The single parent assisted by
loans faced a disproportionate amount of debt upon completion of studies;    the
prospect of this situation may have had the effect of foreshortening career goals.
Child care was found to be a continuing problem for these students, not only
during the day but during evening hours needed for study and the use of library
facilities.
It was felt that recruitment, literature, calendars, course descriptions etc.,
often reflected the assumption that certain fields would not be of interest to women,
or that others would be of particular interest to women.   Some women reported
that they were discouraged from applying in certain fields by a clearly stated
attitude on the part of some faculty members that male students were preferred
since they were felt to be more committed to long term career goals.   Other women
students reported that the attitudes of male faculty and students in male-dominated
fields tended to make women's participation difficult.   In some Faculties women 6417.

have formed their own student groups for mutual support and exchange of
information, occasionally against opposition from male faculty and students who
felt such groups were unnecessary.
It was concluded that although many of the factors that influence women's
career choices may be seen to reflect the attitudes of society as a whole, it was
nevertheless imperative that the University continue to examine its own practices,

Admissions Committee
Dr. Finnegan reported the following items for information:-
1.     Unit Credit in a Failed Year
In February 1975 Senate approved a resolution that students be granted
unit credit for any course successfully completed.   The resolution was
approved to apply to the Faculties of Arts and Science with effect in the
1974-75 session and applicable to earlier sessions on appeal to the Dean, and
that other Faculties be asked to inform Senate of the advisability of applying
the same principle to them.
Senate was informed that the Faculties of Education and Agricultural
Sciences and the School of Nursing had agreed to implement the regulation.
The following Faculties and Schools considered the regulation to be
either inappropriate or not practicable in their situation:-
Applied Science Law
Architecture Librarianship
Commerce & Business Administration Medicine
Dentistry Pharmaceutical Sciences
Graduate Studies
The Faculty of Forestry agreed to implement the regulation in general
but not in those courses where there had been any change in content. 6425.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee   (continued)
2. Diagnostic English Test and  Basic Composition Workshop   (P.6346)
In January 1975 (P.6306 and 6321) Senate authorized the Faculty of
Arts to require successful completion of a basic composition workshop of
all students entering the Faculty found, through a diagnostic test, to be
deficient in literacy.  Should other Faculties/Schools wish to join the Faculty
of Arts in this new procedure they must obtain Senate approval and
subsequently give notice to prospective students in the Calendar before
doing so.
3. English  80
The Committee ruled that English 80, which was established primarily
to assist foreign students on student visas, be restricted normally to this
group.   Landed immigrants who test at this level may not be admitted to
University until their English competence is more adequate.
Dr. Finnegan also reported that the Native Indian Teacher Training Program
(approved by Senate in May 1974) had been monitored by the Admissions
Committee.

for the 1975-76 session and of these 38 were accepted. 6426.

connection.

Memorial Minute
The following memorial statement had been prepared in accordance with the
custom of Senate in recognition by the University and the Senate of the late
Barnett Savery.
IN MEMORIAM
BARNETT SAVERY
Barnett Savery, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, died July 8,   1975, at
the age of 69.   Born in Seattle, he took his first degree at the University of
Washington in 1927before moving to Harvard, where he earned the M.A. and
Ph.D. in 1933 and 1934.   He taught at his Alma Mater from 1934 to 1938 and at
the University of Idaho from 1938 to 1942.  As a clinical psychologist in the United
States Army for the next four years he became known as a pioneer in group
psychotherapy.   He joined the Faculty of the University of British Columbia in
1946 and three years later he was appointed Professor and Chairman of the
Department of Philosophy and Psychology.   He participated in the amicable
divorce of the two disciplines and in 1958 was named Head of the Department of
Philosophy, which he guided with humane wisdom until 1969, when he resigned
in the conviction that younger men should assume the responsibilities of
leadership.   He retired in 1971 and was granted the title Professor Emeritus.
Throughout his long career here, Savery won a reputation as a gifted teacher,
of his colleagues no less than of his students.   He sought the truth through
questions and, somewhat in the manner of Socrates, he liked to think of himself
as a gadfly.   His influence extended beyond his Department.   He was active in
the University's affairs and served two terms on Senate (1957-1960,  1963-1966).
His special interest in aesthetics was associated with his firm encouragement
of the Fine Arts and he was among those chiefly responsible for the creation of
the Departments of Fine Arts, Music and Theatre.   As a kindly and observant
critic, he commanded respect and affection throughout the University.    Those of
us who were his colleagues will not forget him.    We learned much from him.
He is survived by his widow.    To her we convey our sympathy and our own
feeling of satisfaction that the major part of his career was devoted to us. 6429.

Association.   His submission, "A Proposal to Improve the Relations of the
University to the Province by the Establishment of a University Extension

award will be made to the fourth year student standing highest in the
