Welcome to New Members
The Chairman welcomed all members of Senate to the responsibilities and duties that Senate membership would impose on them, and
gave a particularly warm welcome to those members serving on the
Senate for the first time. Thursday, November 3, 1966.
The Chairman warned Senate that the University was entering a
period when problems would be more complex than they had been in the
past and the solution to them would add greatly to the difficulty of
the tasks facing the governing bodies of the University.  The
doubling of university enrolments within five years, as had been
recently forecast, would in itself cause a variety of problems.   For
the University of British Columbia the problems were primarily
focussed on the graduate and professional needs of the University's
activities, although it should not be assumed that we had solved all
the problems of undergraduate education nor the problems of growth
at this level.   Undergraduate education would continue during the
coming years to be a major problem.
The Chairman stressed that the governments were becoming
increasingly concerned with the ways in which universities spend
their money.  Although traditionally the Senate had not taken into
account the costs of programmes of study that it had considered and
recommended, nevertheless, in the future it would undoubtedly be
incumbent on Senate to consider the financial implications of its
The Chairman commented on the responsibilities of the Senate at
present, when the whole question of University Government was being
questioned across Canada.  He urged all members to read the
Duff-Berdahl Report that had been circulated at the meeting.   In
the meantime, while examination of the role of Senate was being
investigated, the Chairman pointed out that it was necessary that
University business be continued as in the past where the basic
responsibility of Senate was the determination of academic policy in
its widest sense.
Senate Membership
The roster of members was circulated to the meeting for
information.  See Appendix A. Thursday, November 3, 1966.

Business Arising from the Minutes
Report of the New Programmes Committee on "A Revised

been included on the Agenda in error.   This recommendation would be
considered by the Board when the budget is established.
Annual Financial Report of the University, 1965-66
As required under Section 50 of the Universities Act, the Board
of Governors had forwarded to the Senate a copy of the Annual
Financial Report, Balance Sheet and Financial Statements of the
University, March 31, 1966.   The Chairman recommended that those
members of Senate who had time to do so should examine the report in
the office of the Secretary of Senate.
Report of the Senate Executive Committee
The Chairman explained that the Senate Executive Committee had
dealt with a number of items on the Agenda and that their findings
had been attached to the relevant papers.
Election of Members of Senate to the Board of Governors
Section 16, 17 and 20 (1) of the Universities Act, referring to
the election by Senate of members of the Board of Governors, and a
list of present Senate members eligible for such election, had been
The Senate Executive Committee had recommended that nominations
be made from the floor of the Senate Meeting and that the election
be conducted by a mail ballot.   Dean Gage explained that the reason
for the recommendation was that it was felt some of the new members
might not be familiar with all of the names proposed and also that
members who were unable to be present might wish to have a voice in
the election.   Some members objected to what they felt was a break
in tradition but were prepared to accept the recommendation on
condition that it not be considered a precedent.
Dean Gage )     That as recommended by the Senate Executive
Mr. Brown )     Committee the Committee proceed to nominations
and that after the nominations are made the
election be conducted by a mail ballot to be
handled by the Registrar.

Dr. Smith asked if it would be possible to show the field of

done at some time in the future.
Dr. Gibson asked that the Senate Committee record their warm
thanks and appreciation for the time and effort that Dean Gage had
put into his activities as Chairman of the Committee on Prizes,
Scholarships and Bursaries.
Report of the Director of Summer Session 1966
The report of the Director of Summer Session, 1966, and a report
on Summer Session registration in credit courses, had been circulated,
and were received for information.
The Registrar was asked to report to a later meeting on the
courses that had been offered with low enrolment.
Report of the Director of the Department of Extension
The Chairman commented on the loss to the University and to the
Department of Extension of Dr. Friesen.   He paid tribute to
Dr. Friesen for the exciting and creative work that he had done in
the Department over the years that he had been Director.  The
Chairman felt that nothing could indicate this more clearly than the
report of the Extension Department that was now in the hands of
Senate members.   The report clearly revealed the magnitude of the
contribution this University was making in its Extension work and the
kind of changes that were occurring.  The Chairman stated that the
work of the Extension Department in the field of the professions had
increased substantially.  Mr. Blaney spoke briefly on the report
which was received for information.
3654 Thursday, November 3, 1966.
Report of the Registrar

Comparison of First Year Failure Rates 1962
These reports had been circulated to the Committee for
There was a discussion on failure rates and withdrawals and
Mr. Chapman drew members' attention to the range in percentages of
First Class standings in the various Faculties and expressed the
opinion that the small number of students being graded as First Class
was something for concern.
Dr. McDowell )     That this be referred to the Committee on
Mr. Chapman )     Admissions.
Dr. Bowers asked if information was available on the number of
students who had transferred from Simon Fraser University.  The
Registrar stated that he hoped to be able to produce this information
for the December Meeting of Senate.
Role and Organization of Senate
The Chairman introduced the topic by making reference to the
publication "University Government in Canada", known generally as the
Duff-Berdahl Report, copies of which had been distributed early in
the meeting to Senate members.   He also referred to the two documents
circulated with the Agenda:  "A Report of the Committee on Faculty
Participation in University Government", a publication of a Faculty
Association committee under the chairmanship of Professor Bourne, and
"Report of the Study Group on Faculty Participation in University
Government", produced by a committee jointly selected by the Faculty
Association and the President, chaired by Professor Moyls.
President Macdonald then outlined briefly the present
organization of the University with particular reference to the duty
and power of Senate as set out in the Universities Act, Section 54.
He described the problems of Senate's functioning and detailed the
operation of the Senate Executive Committee.
A Thursday, November 3, 1966.
The Chairman finally referred to the reports mentioned earlier
and raised questions concerning them.   In particular he queried
the omission of any suggestion that the "two-tier" system of Board of
Governors and Senate be replaced by a single policy-making group
combining the tasks of these two bodies.
The meeting was then opened for general discussion.
Dean Curtis made a suggestion that a paper of President Bissell
of the University of Toronto be made available to Senate members
since it was pertinent to discussion of effective co-ordination of
the work of Senate and the Board.   The Chairman agreed that this
would be done.
Professor Scott urged that consideration of the composition of
Senate as proposed in the various reports be  deferred and full
attention given to Senate's role and the most effective way to
organize Senate in order that it might fulfil its purpose.
Dr. Scott )     That a 12 member committee be formed to
Dr. Copp  )     study and to make recommendations on the
role and organization of Senate.
After considerable further discussion the motion was carried,
with agreement that the Registrar conduct the election by mail and
that the Senate Executive Committee draw up the terms of reference
of the new Committee.
Report of the President's Committee on Athletic Awards
The Chairman reminded Senate of its policy statement on Awards
for Athletics and of the action taken at a previous meeting when a
particular case was brought before Senate for its consideration.
The present report was initiated with a view to having Senate clarify
its policy.
A motion of Dean Curtis, seconded by Professor Clark, that the
report be received and held for the next meeting was carried, but on the
objection of Professor Bowers that insufficient time was given for
consideration of the resolution the Chair declared the motion rescinded.
3656 Thursday, November 3, 1966.
Dean Gage gave his opinion that no bursary should be authorized
for a student with academic standing below Second Class and that no
scholarship should be awarded to a student with an academic standing
below 707o.   He also explained that the policy statement could not be
interpreted to require the holder of an award to participate in any
branch of sports as a condition of his receiving the award.   It was
essential, he insisted, that this be stated clearly in order that
there be no misunderstanding on the part of prospective donors.
Scott   )
Brousson )
That the recommendation that "the factor of
athletic participation and proficiency in a
particular sport may be specified by donors"
be incorporated in Senate policy be approved,
and that a clause be appended giving an
interpretation of the application of the
policy as outlined by Dean Gage.
There was no further business.
The meeting adjourned at 10.30 p.m.
