Chairman's Remarks
Dr. Strangway informed Senate in general terms about the University's
proposals for financial support from the excellence fund, previously

that   had   been   called   for.      The   first   set   of   proposals,    those   reflecting 8647.
April  23,   1986
Chairman's Remarks     (continued)
items that affect operating budgets at the University, which were due on
April 30, and the second group of proposals, those that will reflect
specific research or teaching or combinations that are considered over and
above normal operating budgets, were due on May 30. The University had been
asked to give a preliminary list of the proposals due May 30 by April 30 so
that there would be a clear indication of what would be forthcoming. A
number of proposals had been prepared with respect to operating budget
items. it would not be possible to finalize the current operating budget
until such time as there had been a response from the Government to the
University's proposals. Dr. Strangway emphasized that U.B.C had been in
intensive consultation with the sister British Columbia universities and as
far as operating budget proposals were concerned there had been good
cooperation  amongst  the  three universities.
Reports of committees of  Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Arts, School of Nursing, Faculty of Science - enrolment
controls
In presenting the report of the Committee, Dr. Finnegan stated that
the material from the admissions committee would be dealt with on three
different  levels.   Firstly,  proposals  concerning  entrance  to the
University from secondary school as new first year entrants had been
received from the Faculty of Arts, the School of Nursing and the Faculty
of Science.
The Committee recommended approval of the proposal of the Faculty of
Arts that enrolment be limited to 1500 for new first year admissions. 8648.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Arts, School of Nursing, Faculty of Science - enrolment
controls  (continued)
Dr. Finnegan  )  That an enrolment limitation of 15 00 for
Dean Will     ) new admissions into the first year of the
B.A. program in the 1986/8 7 Winter Session
be approved, this limit to be continued
for a further two years, and to be reviewed
annually.
Mr. Sugimoto stated that secondary schools would appreciate receiving
information concerning changes in policy or standards much earlier than
April or May.  He stated that the enrolment limit would probably not
have any effect this year or in subsequent years because enrolment at
the secondary school grade 12 level this year was almost identical to
last year and would be about the same during the next five years as
enrolment would level off in 19 87 and would decrease by about 5000 over
the next five years. He therefore felt that the limits were unnecessary
and that it would cause undue and unnecessary anxiety for students at
the high school level should such an announcement be made at this time.
Dean Will stated that the Faculty had no alternative but to give
itself an insurance policy. Any increase in enrolment beyond 1500 would
seriously jeopardize the quality of instruction and the Faculty's
ability to service those students admitted into the Faculty. He pointed
out that enrolment had increased by more than 9% since 1981/82 and that
the number of faculty had gone down by about 10%.
Dr. Matheson stated that of all the regions in Canada, British
Columbia had the lowest rate in terms of university participation.  She 8649.

felt that it was important that the public be made aware that the
reasons for the enrolment restrictions were financial.
The motion was put and carried.
The committee recommended approval of proposed enrolment controls
submitted by the School of Nursing.
Dr. Finnegan  )  That the recommendation of the School of
Dr. Elder     ) Nursing that an admissions level of 80 be
established for the first year of the B.S.N.
program for 1986/87 and until further notice
be approved.
Dr. Finnegan stated the the resources available were such that no
more than 80 students could be accepted into the School of Nursing and
the Admissions Committee were therefore, with regret, recommending
approval of this proposal to continue the enrolment controls imposed for
the 1985/8 6 academic year.
Dr. Elder requested that it be recorded that it was clear that the
School of Nursing had suffered the largest percentage drop in funding of
any unit as they had lost 25% of their funding. This had resulted in
the restriction of enrolment and a reduction in the chances of young
people to take a Bachelor of Nursing degree program in the Province of
British Columbia. She stated that although there were other ways of
becoming a nurse there were very few other ways of having a graduate
program in Nursing other than by a baccalcaureate program as an avenue
thereto.  Also there were very few ways of becoming a senior nursing 8650.

administrator   without   some   sort  of   university  degree.     Thus  the   chances
for    perfectly    well    qualified    people    to    take    up    nursing    were    being
decreased   and   this  was  being   done   simply   because   the   School   of   Nursing
was unable to  fund its teaching program.
Dean Meisen stated that the Faculty of Applied Science also regretted
this particular measure but it felt that they owed it to those students
enrolled in the program to provide them with a high quality program, and
given the limited resources available the Faculty regrettably had to
reduce the number to 8 0 and keep it at the level of 80 until additional
resources become  available to the  School.
In response to a query Dean Meisen reported that he did indicate in
the Fall that the School of Nursing was undertaking a review of the
entire program that it was offering at the baccalaureate level, and
that particular consideration was being given to possibly having a
common first year with students registered in other Faculties or to let
students enrol in another Faculty for the first year and then have them
do just three years in the School of Nursing. That appeared to be a
feasible approach at the time. The School then undertook to work out
the implications of such a move in detail and came to the conclusion
that it was not a wise measure to undertake. Therefore the basic
bachelor's program as it is in the Calendar now will remain unchanged.
He stated that additional modifications were being made to the program
but that these were relatively minor and were being conducted in the
usual way. 8651.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty   of    Arts,    School    of    Nursing,    Faculty   of    Science   -   enrolment
controls     (continued)
Mr.   Savage,   student   representative  of   the  Faculty of  Applied  Science,
also   expressed   regret   on   behalf   of   students   in   the   Faculty  and   in   the
School   of   Nursing   concerning   the   continuing   enrolment   restrictions   and
the  possible  future  implications.
The motion was put and  carried.
The    committee    recommended    approval   of    proposed    enrolment    controls
submitted by the Faculty of  Science.
Dr.  Finnegan       )     That an enrolment  limitation of   1400  for
Dean  Miller )     new admissions   into  the First  Year  of  the
B.Sc.   program in  the  1986-87 Winter   Session,
and subsequent years, be approved;    this
limit to be  reviewed annually.
Mr. Mustard, student senator at-large, informed Senate that he had
been contacted by a large number of students in the Faculty of Science
expressing concern at the implications of the enrolment restrictions in
the  Faculty of   Science.
Dean Miller responded to the concerns expressed by stating that the
Faculty of Science had to consider the question of safety, it would put
the  Faculty under  enormous  stress   if   the  14 00   limit were to be  exceeded.
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried. 8652.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions  Committee     (continued)
Faculty of  Arts  and  the  Faculty of   Forestry - enrolment  controls
Dr. Finnegan stated that the second part of the report concerned
entrance to programs at levels above the first year. The committee were
recommending approval of two proposals, one from the Faculty of Arts and
one  from the  Faculty of  Forestry.
Dr.   Finnegan       )     That an enrolment limitation  of 750  for
Dean Will )     transfer  students  from colleges and  other
universities  into the second and third years
(together)  of the B.A.  program in  the 1986-87
Winter  Session be  approved,  this  limit  to
continue  for  a  further  two years,  and  to be
reviewed annually.    For 1986/87,  second year
transfers would be  limited to approximately 450.
Dr. Dennison expressed concern at the effect the proposed enrolment
limitations would have on colleges. He stated that the pressures of
coping with under-funding were quite discouraging for the colleges,
particularly with respect to the academic programs. Dr. Dennison stated
that the Senate Committee on Liaison with post-Secondary Institutions,
of which he was chairman, had asked the institutions what their concerns
were and although many of the responses were rather generalized they did
refer to somewhat unilateral actions taken by the universities that
affect their programs, stating that the impact was rather heavy because
of the timing factor. The third concern, expressed by a number of
college people, was the suggestion in the proposal of the Faculty of
Arts that the Admissions conmittee consider raising the mimimum grade
point average for transfer students from other institutions. He stated
that the case was undeniable that students with grade point averages of
2.0-2.2 do not do well at university. However, there was quite a range
in  the  peformance   of   students   among  the   various   institutions.     When   the 8653.

(continued)
general GPA is raised unfortunately it always invites the undesirable
effect of grade inflation.  Inevitably institutions adjust but when this
happens  the  institutions most  penalized are those who act most
responsibly and maintain their standards.
Dr. Dennison went on to express concern about the timing of the
report as the controls would take effect in September 1986. He stated
that a good number of students expecting to get into the University will
be denied admission. He felt that this would have a depressing affect
upon the academic program enrolments in the Colleges. He concluded his
remarks by stating that clearly there was an intent to encourage
students to take two years in college, which he felt was an excellent
point as students who had taken two years in the colleges had a higher
success rate. Unfortunately, however, the financial restraint had put
particular pressure upon the second year academic programs in the
colleges because of the productivity measures. The impact being that
colleges, particularly the rural colleges, were no longer able to mount
a viable core curriculum in the second year.
In his response Dean Will stated the controlled enrolment was a very
complicated and regrettable matter. Despite high tuition fees the
University had more students than it could cope with. Enrolment
restrictions in the Faculty of Arts was more complex since there were
two streams of entry; one from Grade 12 and the other through transfers
from the colleges and universities. Many students entered into the
Faculty of Arts with the intention of going into other Faculties. 8654.
April 23, 1986
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Forestry - enrolment controls
(continued)
About 35% of the students in the Faculty of Arts are service students
who are registered in other Faculties but come to the Faculty of Arts
for the courses that are electives or requirements for the programs in
other Faculties.  He stated that they were not trying to change the mix
of students but were very aware of the fact that if only one "gate" were
to be controlled the result would be that in a few years the Faculty
could become largely a service Faculty with most of the students
registered elsewhere, and the number of liberal arts graduates from UBC
and the province would go down. The Faculty did not wish the trend to
continue to a point where it would be getting a smaller percentage of
the grade 12 students.  It was  important for the Faculty to take some
action in controlling admissions.
In response to a question as to whether the colleges had been
contacted, Dean Will stated that they had not because it was felt that
it would not affect them drastically this coming year. The proposal had
been modified to approximately 450 transfer students into second year
rather than the present 500 because the Faculty was aware that in some
of the colleges there was not a proper second year and that some
students would have to go elsewhere.
Mr. Pearce drew attention to the economic realities facing students
from the interior seeking post-secondary education. Most of these
students were forced by economic reality to attend community colleges
and should transfer from these colleges be restricted it could affect
their ability to complete their post-secondary education. 8655.
April  23,   1986
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Forestry - enrolment controls
(continued)
Dean Will stated that the need to restrict enrolment was not solely
connected with the present financial situation.  He stated that senate
has had on record for many years an optimum size for the University and
had gone on record as saying it did not want to have an open ended
enrolment for the University as a whole.  He reminded Senate that
controlling the enrolment in the University as a whole requires
controlling enrolment in the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science.
Several members spoke against the motion. One reason cited was that
students in rural areas were encouraged to attend colleges rather than
applying for admission from Grade 12 in order to ease themselves into
university life gradually so there were psychological as well as
economic realities to be considered. Another reason given was that the
proposal was thought to be premature
Speaking in support of the motion Dean Miller stated that the
Faculties of Arts and Science could manage with the enrolment controls
being proposed but beyond that the University would be facing
unmitigated disaster. It would be irresponsible of the University not
to send out information regarding these circumstances and that the only
responsible way to do this was to give people a year's notice.
Dr. Finnegan commented that students applying for admission to UBC
would be admitted on the basis of their academic qualifications. If
they were outstanding there would be no hesitation in admitting them 8656.
April 23,   1986
Reports of Committees of senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Forestry - enrolment controls
(continued)
regardless of where they came from.  Students attempting to transfer
into an advanced year would also be admitted on the same basis -
academic  qualifications.   That means  that  those students who are
prepared academically to receive what the University offers will be
admitted and those students from colleges and universities who would be
better served by another year in that institution are going to be
encouraged to do that and then apply for admission to UBC  He stated
that it may well be that there are community colleges in particular who
are not prepared to give an entire second year but the Faculty of Arts
would certainly take that into consideration.
After further discussion the motion was put and carried.
Dr. Finnegan reported that the committee recommended approval of a
proposed modification to the current university calendar statement under
the Faculty of Forestry concerning Forestry Technology Diploma Graduates
Admission Standards, subject to the following change in wording: last
line - change "flexibly" to "individually".
"Students who have completed a two year Forestry Technology Diploma
program with an overall average of at least 65% are eligible to be
considered for admission. Transfer students or graduates of other
universities or colleges seeking admission will be reviewed flexibly
Dr. Finnegan  ) That the proposed modification to the
Dean Kennedy  )  the Faculty of Forestry's current University
Calendar statement concerning Forestry Technology
Diploma Graduates Admission Standards, as amended,
be approved.
Carried 8657.

Faculty of Arts - criteria for Unsatisfactory Standing
Dr. Finnegan presented the third item considered by the Admissions
Committee. He stated that the committee recommended approval of an
addition to the current criteria for unsatisfactory Standing in the
Faculty of Arts.
Dr. Finnegan  ) That the following addition to the current
Dean Will     ) criteria for unsatisfactory Standing in
the Faculty of Arts be approved for 1987/88
and beyond:
"Fail standing will be assigned in the case
of any student taking more than 6 units, who
does not pass in 15 units (or in all units
attempted, whichever is less), AND who does
not obtain an overall average of at least 60%
in at least 60% of the units attempted."
Following a brief discussion the motion was put and carried with the
understanding that the wording of the statement be clarified before
inclusion in the Calendar.
The Chairman agreed to a request by Dr. Sobrino that he be allowed to
present the following motion:
Dr. Sobrino   ) That the President of the University write
Dr. Matheson  ) to the Premier and the Minister of Post-
Secondary Education expressing the concern
of Senate at being forced to recommend
further unilateral controls in enrolment
in a province where the percentage of the
population attending university is one of
the lowest in Canada.

The  following  report

of  the  committee  had  been circulated  for
"The Senate committee on student Awards acts as an advisory body to the
Director of the Office of Awards and Financial Aid. it also brings new
awards forward for the approval of Senate and makes other recommendations
to Senate when necessary. The last report to Senate in December 1984
contained two recommendations, an improvement in the Calendar statement on
Awards, and the elimination of the Government Scholarship Examination
requirement for general Entrance Scholarships in order to allow these
awards to be made on a more timely basis.
Since the last report the Committee has recommended 175 new awards to
Senate. Of these 48 were bursaries, 38 were prizes and 89 were
scholarships. it is appropriate to note that these included 25
President's Entrance Scholarships and the Mount Pleasant Branch - Royal
Canadian Legion Scholarship, thereby doubling the number of premium
entrance scholarships from 26 to 52.
The Committee has considered 4 appeals and has reviewed the current policy
with regard to withdrawals and award repayments.
The Committee has examined the statistical information on award winners
holding more than one scholarship and finds no evidence to warrant
imposing restrictions. The Committee has reviewed the criteria for
University scholarships (awarded to the top 6%) for several faculties and
programs to ensure an equitable distribution. The committee has also
reviewed scholarship criteria for students in co-op programs in order to
establish a reasonable basis for comparative evaluation. 8662.

holders to ensure that the limited funds are effectively disbursed. in
general the statistics reveal that bursary holders make excellent use of
their awards. in the 1984/85 winter session 89.4% of the 1209 bursary
holders completed their year successfully. Of the 40 students receiving
the highest bursaries, only one failed and two passed less than 9 units.
We are very sensitive to the increasing debt level incurred by many
students and this will be the subject of further consideration by the
Committee.
Since the previous report, the Conmittee has devoted significant time to
matters pertaining to entrance scholarships. The application deadline has
been moved to May 15 this year and will probably be moved to April 15 for
awards for the year 1987/88. This will allow the announcement of
scholarship winners to be made concurrently with announcements by other
institutions. The Committee has been particularly concerned with the
establishment of some standard measure which will allow a more objective
comparison between scholarship applicants. The committee raised the
question of some form of entrance scholarship examination in a memorandum
circulated to all Deans and to Heads of Departments in the Faculties of
Arts and Science. Specifically the Committee felt that the decision by
UBC to establish some form of entrance scholarship examination would send
a clear signal to the public that UBC wished to encourage excellence.
However, it was also recognized that the duplication of existing national
or provincial examinations such as the Euclid Exam in Mathematics was
undesirable. Responses to the memorandum covered the complete spectrum
but the Conmittee is encouraged that the Faculty of Arts is moving rapidly
towards instituting an Essay Competition. The Committee feels that this,
together with the existing external examinations, could form a valuable
part of the scholarship evaluation process.
In addition to the 52 Major Entrance scholarships, UBC awards a
substantial number (approximately 400) of lesser awards to incoming
students. in these evaluations the Committee has approved the
recommendation that the rsults of the Grade XII Provincial Government
Examinations be used, although it will not be desirable to delay the
awards sufficiently to await the Provincial Government Scholarship
results. This reintroduces an element of independent province-wide
evaluation.
Finally the Conmittee has approved a new calendar format which separates
the Awards and Financial Aid section, thereby giving greater prominence to
the awards and more flexibility in the distribution of the material." 8663.

Reports  of Committees  of Senate     (continued)
Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Emeritus status for Non-Faculty
Mr.    McConville,     Chairman    of    the    Committee,     presented    the    following
report:
"Pursuant to a resolution of Senate at its meeting on March 20, 1985 an ad
hoc committee was appointed with terms of reference "to review the
appropriateness of granting emeritus status to senior professional members
of the University community who are not faculty. The Committee should, if
necessary include amended terms of reference for the Senate Tributes
Committee".
In order to ascertain the practice elsewhere in Canada the Registrar, on
behalf of the Committee, enquired of 12 universities across Canada as to
the policies in effect relating to emeritus status for non-faculty. Of
the twelve, eight universities have no provision for non-faculty emeritus
appointments while three provide for emeritus status for non-faculty such
as chief librarian, administrative officers such as vice-presidents,
registrars, university secretaries. One university makes provision for
emeritus status for "Academic (Non-Teaching) Faculty" which includes such
positions as Director university Counselling Services, Director Academic
Computing Services,  Nursing Director   (University Health Service).
In approaching the question of how far emeritus status should be granted
at U.B.C. to retired non-Faculty members of the University community, the
Committee started with the approach, which is followed at U.B.C to grant
emeritus status virtually automatically to all retiring members of the
University who fall into defined categories. These categories presently
include all full time teaching faculty who retire at the rank of Senior
instructor or higher at the age of 65, or on early retirement after at
least 10 years of service. clinical appointees who have served at a
significant level for at least 15 years are also eligible, upon
recommendation of the Dean of Medicine.
It was beyond the Committee's terms of reference to reconsider this basic
policy. Therefore the question, as the Committee saw it, is whether the
rationale behind the basic policy that we now follow applies with equal
force to non-Faculty, or certain groups of non-Faculty, as it does to
Faculty.
That rationale, in the Committee's view, is that emeritus status at U.B.C.
is not seen primarily as a mark of exceptional academic distinction.
Rather, it seems to be regarded as a tribute to the service that a
retiring employee has given as part of the academic enterprise of the
University. It is taken for granted that in their teaching or scholarship
or both, the teaching faculty have made a major contribution to the
academic enterprise. The question is whether other groups make a
contribution to teaching or scholarship that is similarly integral to the
academic enterprise. 8664.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Report    of    the    Ad    Hoc    Committee    on    Emeritus    Status    for    Non-Faculty
(continued)
"The Committee considered that the professional librarian's role is well
enough established as essential to the academic activity of the University
that librarians should be included in the positions eligible for emeritus
status on a similar basis as are faculty, it concluded that other persons
functioning in a similar role in a modern multi-discipline university
should be eligible for emeritus status. it also concluded that an
appropriate test of non-faculty who should be eligible for emeritus status
would be whether or not the person had been appointed to his or her
position by the Board of Governors. The Committee was advised that
non-faculty so appointed are now librarians, the directors and programme
directors of the Centre for Continuing Education as well as University
officers.
Accordingly the Committee makes the  following recommendations:
1. That on retirement full-time librarians, directors and programme
directors of the Centre for continuing Education and University
officers who have been appointed to their positions by the Board of
Governors and who have served for 10 consecutive years prior to
retirement  be eligible  for  emeritus  status.
2. That the Tributes committee grant emeritus status to such persons who
are eligible under the preceding paragraph and are nominated by the
President of the university, the university Librarian, or the
Director,   Centre  for  continuing Education,  as  appropriate.
3. That the guidelines of the Tributes Committee be amended to include
this  recommendation.
The Conmittee did not consider it necessary to review the well established
practice of this university of granting emeritus status to retired
Chancellors, presidents,  Deans and Registrars."
Mr.  McConville  )     That the report of the Committee be
Dr.  Evans )     received and  the  terms  of  reference
of the Tributes Committee be  amended
to include recommendations 1 and  2,  and
that the committee be discharged.
Referring to recommendation 1, Dr. Birch pointed out that by definition
under the University Act, all employees of the University are appointed by
the Board of Governors. He stated that different mechanisms are used in
carrying   out   and   concluding  those   appointments   but   by  definition   legally 8665.

every employee of the University is appointed by the Board of Governors.
He felt that this particular problem required advice from the legal
advisors within the University.
Dr. Birch also pointed out that recommendation 2. should read: "That
Senate grant emeritus status ..." rather than the Tributes Committee.
However, rather than proposing possible amendments on the floor of Senate,
Dr. Birch suggested that the report be tabled; the intention being that
he would seek advice and that the report be lifted from the table after
obtaining appropriate advice.
Dr. Birch     )  That the report be tabled.

Report of the ad hoc Committee on senate Procedures
Mr.  Yaworsky,  chairman of  the conmittee,   presented the following report:
"In May, 1985, Senate struck an ad-hoc Committee on Senate Procedures,
"charged with the task of collating and evaluating existing Senate
procedures and rules of order; and recommend new procedures and/or
changes to existing procedures as necessary; and that a manual of
procedures be  published and distributed to Senate members."
To this end, the ad-hoc Committee is pleased to present to Senate for
adoption the attached report, consisting of a codification of Senate's
existing practice, procedures and rules of order. Furthermore, the
Committee in their evaluation, found very little to change or supplement
with new procedures. The Committee hopes that Senate members - both
novice and experienced - will find this compilation of the rules and
procedures which have evolved over the past seventy years a useful
resource.
The Committee proposes the following motions for Senate's consideration:
1.       "That   the    report   of   the   ad-hoc   Committee   on   Senate   Procedures   be
adopted. " 8666.

Clerk to the Senate on an annual basis and revisions distributed to
all members of Senate as necessary."

(Feb.   21,   1973,   p.5797)
.1      First,  a  majority of   the   entire  committee  must  vote   in  favour   of
each  individual proposed.
.2      Thereafter    the   Senate   must    vote    in    favour    of    each    individual
proposed.
.14 Persons proposed for co-option to committees shall not attend meetings
of these committees until Senate has approved of their becoming
members (Feb. 21, 1973, p.5797) if the co-opted member subsequently
becomes a member of Senate, that member's continued membership on the
committee  requires  ratification by  Senate.   (Nov.   13,   1985,   p.8510)
.15 Co-opted members of committees shall have full voting rights on these
committees.   (Feb.  21,  1973,   p.5797)
.16 Attendance at meetings of Senate committees is normally limited to
members of the committee. They may be attended by others only with
the permission, or at the request of, the Chairman of the Committee.
Committee members may not appoint a proxy.
.17 Members of committees whose term of office on Senate has ended are

4.3 Committee Reports
.1 Only those committees which have received the delegated powers of
Senate, as noted in Section 4.2.3. are required to present an annual

Report of the Librarian 1984-85
Mr.   Mclnnes,   the  University  Librarian,   spoke  briefly  to  the  report which
had been circulated for  information.
Centre for  continuing Education
Mr.   Kulich,   Director   of   the   Centre   for   continuing   Education,   presented
the  following report which  had been circulated for  information:
"On April 27th the Centre for Continuing Education celebrates its 50th
anniversary. The centre was established in 1936 as the Department of
University Extension, at a time and in circumstances very similar to
those UBS finds itself in today. That year, the Carnegie Foundation
gave the financially hard-pressed university a grant of $30,000, and the
university administration decided to use these funds to formally
establish extension at UBC
Through this department UBC came to serve British Columbia well with a
province-wide program of non-credit general adult education. The
department played a vital role in adult education in B.C. through to the
mid-1960s, when the local school boards, with UBC providing leadership,
set up locally based programs, and UBC withdrew from most of its
province-wide program delivery.
The department also provided proving ground on which programs not yet
established as academic departments could be tested. Some of these,
notably music and theatre, did lead to the establishment of formal
credit programs.
In the late 1960s the department, in cooperation with professional
faculties and associations, pioneered and established professional
continuing education programs in Engineering, Education, Forestry,
Pharmacy, Nursing, Law, Community planning, Adult Education, and
Architecture, and in the early 1970s in criminology, Gerontology, and
Librarianship. A number of these programs have been taken over directly
by the professional faculties since then.
Over the years the department was involved in significant projects such
as the Youth Training Camp in the 1940s; the Summer School of Arts and
of Public Affairs in the 1950s; the Indian Leadership Education
project, the CHMC Retired People Housing project, and the Orientation
Program for Elected Municipal officials in the 1960s; the Women's
Resources centre established in 1972; and the Women's Network project
in the 1980s. The department was recognized as one of the best in
university non-credit general continuing education, and provided
leadership to the field and to the profession. 8679.
April 23,   1986
Centre  for  continuing Education     (continued)
In 1970 the Department of University Extension became the Centre for
Continuing Education. Today the Centre operates under a mandate given
it at that time by Senate, charging it specifically with responsibility
to provide 'general non-credit programs, appropriate for a university,
dealing with liberal and scientific studies, public affairs and
community projects.'"

Faculty of  Dentistry
Dr.    Birch    notified    Senate    that    the    Faculty    of    Dentistry    would    be
bringing     to     the     May    meeting     of     Senate     a     recommendation     for     the
reorganization    of    the    Departments    within    the    Faculty.      At    the    special
meetings   last   May,    senate   was    informed   that   the   Faculty   of   Dentistry,
which has approximately  40 full-time  members  and  six  departments,  had been
requested   to   address   the   question   of   its   organization   and   to   consider
reducing   the   number  of   departments  or  potentially   eliminating  deptartments
entirely.     A  committee  was  established  within  the   course   of  the year  with
a    chairman    external    to    the    Faculty.       The    Faculty    has    accepted    the
recommendations      for      a      reorganization     which     would      result      in      the
establishment   of   three   new   Departments   and   the   elimination   of   six   old
Departments.     Dr.   Birch   invited any members particularly  interested  in the
issues   involved to  contact Dean  Beagrie prior   to  the  next Senate meeting.
The meeting adjourned at 10.20 p.m.
The   next   regular   meeting   of   Senate  will   be   held   on  Wednesday,   May   21,
1986.
