Bachelor of Landscape Architecture Program  (See Appendix 'B')
Approval of the proposed Bachelor of Landscape Architecture program was
withheld at the previous meeting pending the revision of the admission requirements.
It was stated in the submission from the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences that
the proposal was the outcome of the recommendations of the President's Advisory
Committee on Landscape Architecture. The program would be a professional program
for the education and training of landscape architects and would embody a core of
required courses in each of its four years. Because of the trans-disciplinary nature of
landscape architecture recommended elective courses would be listed in a brochure
available from the Department of Plant Science. Following a broadly based first year,
emphasis in subsequent years is placed on the principles of design and their application
to the landscape, with the second year focussing on regional and resource situations, 6976.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee
Due to the absence of the Chairman of the committee it was agreed that
discussion of the report of the Budget Committee be postponed to the March meeting
of Senate.
Curriculum Committee
Dr. Runeckles drew Senate's attention to the Elementary Professional
Concentration in French which had been approved by Senate at the previous meeting.
Senate approved the proposal with a modification to the title of Education 394 and the
requirement that French 302 be required in Third Year.
It was pointed out that the requirement for French 302 was, in fact, part of the
concurrent academic concentration, outlined below:
French 302 (to be taken in Third Year)
9 units of senior level courses selected
from the following: French 306, 334,
335, 402, 414-418, with 306 and 402
strongly recommended. 6978.
Wednesday,  February  15,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
The requirements for the academic concentration are independent of those for
the professional concentration which includes one course to be selected from a list
which includes French 306, 334, 335, 402, 414-418.
Committee on the Implementation of the Universities Act
Election of students to the Senate and the Board of Governors
Dean Lysyk explained that the committee had received copies of
correspondence between the Student Representative Assembly and the Registrar
concerning alleged irregularities in the recent student elections to the Senate and
the Board of Governors.
Senate was informed that the Student Representative Assembly had passed a
motion to the effect that it had determined that irregularities took place during
the election of students to the Senate and to the Board of Governors. The S.R.A.
recommended that a new election be called as soon as possible and that the
nominations submitted for the previous election be considered good and submitted
as the only candidates in the new election.
Dean Lysyk stated that the committee felt that it was not in a position to
make any recommendations because it had not been given a mandate to deal with
the subject of election disputes and, furthermore, it did not feel that there was
sufficient evidence for the committee to make a ruling.
After considerable discussion it was suggested that an ad hoc committee be
established to look into the allegations.
Dr. Bourne    ) That Senate establish a committee to investigate
Dr. Shearer  ) the    allegations    of    improper    conduct    in    the
election of student members to the Board of
Governors and student senators at-large; the
committee to have the power to decide whether
the election was affected by improper conduct of
such a nature that it should be declared invalid,
and to declare the election invalid if they so find.
Carried
It was agreed that if a new election were necessary that procedures for
conducting it be left in the hands of the Registrar. 6879.
Wednesday, September  14,   1977.
APPENDIX
New Awards Recommended to Senate  (continued)
The N. M. Skalbania Ltd. Scholarship - One or more scholarships to a total of
$1,000 have been provided by N. M. Skalbania Ltd., Vancouver, B. C The award
will be made to a student(s) demonstrating proficiency in the fourth year of a Civil
Engineering program. Preference will be given to students who intend to continue
their studies at the graduate level. The award will be made on the recommendation
of the Department.
The A. B. Wing Student Aid Fund - Bursaries to a total of approximately $6,500
have been provided as a result of a bequest from Marjorie Thelma Wing. In making

Wednesday, February  15,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Extracurricular Activities
"Intercollegiate Athletic Program  (continued)
sports in which they will participate in the next four years. It is extremely
difficult to commit funding for such an extended period in a time of financial
constraint.
The decline in the number of faculty members who coach, as part of their
duties in the School of Physical Education and Recreation, is causing concern. It is
extremely difficult to find qualified off-campus coaches, particularly with the
limited budget for honoraria. Consequently, several sports are denied the
leadership so essential to their continuity and development.
Intramurals, Co-Recreation and Recreation U.B.C
These programs continue to involve an increasing number of students each
year. Approximately 3000 students and 370 faculty take part in Recreation U.B.C.
About 6000 students participate in intramural events.
These programs are hampered by a serious lack of facilities. Specifically, the
university badly needs a field house, indoor racquet courts and all-weather fields.
Most major universities in Canada have facilities of these types.
In addition, lack of adequate staffing, for supervision and equipment
distribution, limits the extent of the recreation programs. Lack of administrative
personnel also restricts intramural planning.
Summer programs offered by the university, including Soccer School, Aquatic
Instruction, Sports Camp and Ice Hockey Schools, attract large community
representation. Over 1600 skating lessons were given under "Skate U.B.C." in the
1976-77 winter term. All programs are conducted by the faculty of the School of
Physical Education and Recreation and all instructors are full time students at
U.B.C.
In addition, children and adults located in 400 housing units in Acadia Camp
and Acadia Park are desperately in need of recreational opportunities. Despite the
current demand upon the faculties, it is important to consider the needs of this
particular group.
The Indoor Aquatic Facility
The indoor pool should be completed by May 1978. 6981.
Wednesday,  February  15,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Extracurricular Activities
"The Indoor Aquatic Facility (continued)
Under the management agreement between the AMS and the university, there
are potential difficulties for both intramural and university teams which wish to
use the facility. These teams will have to pay a rental fee which must be included
in their budget. Clearly, many problems would have been avoided if the university
had assumed total financial responsibility for the operation of the indoor pool.
Under the new arrangement, the old outdoor pool will be included in the aquatic
complex and student teams, for the first time, will have to pay a rental fee.
At the present time a similar type of management agreement at the Winter
Sports Center creates an ironical situation whereby the hockey, curling and squash
teams in both men's and women's programs pay a considerable portion of their
budget for ice or court rental.
Federal Government Green Paper
A "green paper" on amateur sports policies in Canada produced by Mrs. lona
Campagnola, the Minister of State for Fitness and Amateur Sport, refers to two
issues which concern the universities. The first is the suggestion of federal subsidy
for travel in Canadian conferences. The second suggests federal financial support
for the partial salaries of some university appointed coaches.
A brief representing the concerns of the Western Universities was submitted
by Dr. Howard Petch, President of the University of Victoria, to Sport Canada. It
is believed that a White Paper will be tabled in the House of Commons in the
spring.
Women's World Field Hockey Tournament
The Canadian Women's Field Hockey Association and U.B.C. will host the
world championships in women's field hockey, on our campus, August 18 - 29, 1979.
(This is perhaps the most important sports event in Vancouver since the
Commonwealth Games of 1954). Obviously, it is causing major concerns for the
quality of fields and facilities. 6982.
Wednesday, February  15,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Extracurricular Activities  (continued)
"Thursday Noon Hours
Despite numerous appeals and restatements of Senate policy, classes are still
being held in the 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. period on Thursdays. This practice has created
extremely difficult situations for students wishing to engage in athletic,
recreational and cultural events on campus.
A print-out, provided by Systems Services shows 84 sections of courses
officially being conducted during the Thursday period.
Suggestions have been made that Systems Services be instructed not to schedule
courses during this period. Even more difficult for students has been the practice
of unofficially changing course times to Thursday noon hour, often after a class
"vote" or professor decree."
The Chairman stated that all Deans should ask Faculty members to adhere to the
regulation that classes not be held on Thursday between 12.30 p.m. and 2.30 p.m.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Revised admission requirements for applicants to a Master's degree program
Senate at its meeting of December 14, 1977 referred back to the Faculty of
Graduate Studies proposed revised admission requirements for applicants to a Master's
degree program.
The proposed revision had been rewritten, as follows, to make clear that
admission on the basis of relevant professional experience as a substitute for
deficiencies in standing was discretionary:-
"That item 3 under Master's Degree (Admission), in the Calendar,
be revised to read:
'3. Applicants for a Master's degree must hold a Bachelor's degree
or its academic equivalent, with
a) Honours in the field of the proposed Master's courses
with First Class standing in at least two (6 units) of the
Third and Fourth Year courses in that field, or
b) First Class standing in at least two (6 units) of the
courses and at least Second Class standing in each of the
remaining courses of Third and Fourth Year work
prescribed by the department or departments or special
Committee concerned as prerequisite to the Master's
program. 6983.
Wednesday, February  15,   1978.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Revised admission requirements for applicants to a Master's degree program
(continued)
'4. Applicants who have a Bachelor's degree, or its academic
equivalent, which does not meet the requirements of 3 a) or b)
above, but who have had sufficient formal training and
relevant professional experience to offset such deficiencies,
may be granted admission on the recommendation of the
appropriate department or Faculty and approval of the
Executive Committee of the Faculty of Graduate Studies."
Dean Larkin  ) That    the   revised   admission   requirements   for
Dr. Shearer   ) applicants     to     a     Master's     degree     program
recommended by the Faculty of Graduate Studies
be approved.

Faculty of Medicine
Policy on reviews of Departments
Dean Webber explained that in November 1976 the Faculty of Medicine brought
forward to Senate proposals on reviews of Departments. The ad hoc Committee on
Departmental Review Policy was then established to examine the proposal of the
Faculty of Medicine and the broader implications it would have for Senate and
University policy.
In order to comply with the policy statement on departmental reviews which had
subsequently been adopted by Senate the Faculty of Medicine revised their original
proposals as follows:-
"I.   Reviews of Departments
The Faculty of Medicine recognizes that it has an obligation to conduct
constructive and impartial reviews of its various Departments together with the
stewardship of their heads.
2.   Frequency of Reviews
The Faculty recognizes that since a review process can become expensive in time
and money and can create a considerable degree of stress within the Department
under review, unnecessary reviews must be avoided. Therefore, reviews should be
carried out when: (I) a Headship becomes vacant because of resignation,
retirement, etc. and in the opinion of the Dean and the Faculty Executive a review
would be of benefit prior to the appointment of a new Head; (2) a reasonable
request for a review comes from within or without a Department; and (3) the Dean,
with the advice of the Faculty Executive, considers a sufficient time has expired
since the last review. This interval should be no longer than seven years, but may
vary within a year or two at the discretion of the Dean and Faculty Executive. 6984.
Wednesday,  February  15,   1978.
Faculty of Medicine
Policy on reviews of Departments (continued)
"3.   Composition of Review Committees
A Review Committee should comprise five members, some of whom represent the
interests of the Faculty and the University and others who are recognized as
experts in the discipline of the Department under review.
Two Committee members shall be from outside the University from the discipline
of the Department under review. One of the two should have had substantial
administrative experience at some other University. Both individuals shall be
appointed by the Dean in consultation with the Faculty Executive. One of them
shall be nominated by the Department Head and the other shall be chosen from a
list submitted by the voting members of the Department under review.
The remaining three members of the Committee shall be appointed by the Dean in
consultation with the Faculty Executive. They shall be members of Faculty of the
University holding appointments without term and the rank of Professor or
Associate Professor. One of them shall be designated by the Faculty Executive as
the Chairman of the Committee.
4. Terms of Reference
The Dean and the Faculty Executive shall prescribe the terms of reference of a
Review Committee at the time of its appointment. The terms of reference should
indicate clearly the extent to which administrative and financial matters are to be
considered.
5. Nature of the Review
The review should be conducted by the Review Committee at the University. It
should be presented with whatever documentation the Department Head and
Department members feel most accurately describes the development, direction
and stewardship of the Department since the previous review. An outline of the
proposed developments in the Department should also be prepared. The Review
Committee should make certain that all individuals (including students, residents,
staff and faculty — both full-time and clinical) who wish to make written or oral
presentations to the Committee have an opportunity to do so. The matter in which
this is accomplished and the manner in which the review process itself is
conducted, will depend on close cooperation between the Chairman of the
committee and the Department Head.
6. Report of the Review Committee
A Review Committee shall prepare its report as soon after the completion of its
review as possible, following the Guidelines approved by Faculty in 1972. It shall
do so in such a manner that the report is suitable for general distribution to
members of faculty of the Department being reviewed and the Faculty Executive.
Any material that it considers to be inappropriate for general circulation because
of legal implications, or because it is outside the terms of reference, should be
contained in a letter of transmission to the Dean and the President. It will be the
responsibility of the Dean or President to discuss with any individual(s) mentioned
in the letter of transmittal the nature and significance of the comments of the
Review Committee. Copies of the report shall be sent to the Dean of the Faculty
of Medicine and to the President of the University simultaneously. 6985.

Policy on reviews of Departments
"6.   Report of the Review Committee    (continued)
The Dean may, on the advice of legal counsel, make deletions of any material in
the report that may be defamatory or of other legal consequence or that might be
considered an invasion of privacy. He shall then refer the report to the
Department concerned with a request that the Department prepare a written
comment on its recommendations. This comment and the report shall be circulated
together to the Faculty Executive."
