Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee
Dr. MacDougall presented a report on the activities of the committee from
September 1977 to September 1978 which had been circulated for information. The
following is an extract from the report:-
"Review of the Past Year
In reviewing the University's budget for the 1978-79 fiscal year in the light
of the actual allocation from the Universities Council of British Columbia the
President proposed, and the committee approved, the following principles as
appropriate guidelines for that year.
1. That there should be no increase in student fees.
2. That there should be no further cutbacks in faculty and staff.
It was noted that the University had been operating with very restrictive budgets
in the two preceding years and any further reduction of faculty or staff could not
be accomplished without weakening the academic programs of the university.
3. That there should be a modest increase (about 2%) in amounts budgeted
for non-salary items. It was conceded that this would not compensate for
inflation.
4. That there should be small allocations available to strengthen some
existing programs.
5. That changes in allocations should generally reflect changes in
enrolments (bearing in mind that some Faculties provide services for students
enrolled in other Faculties). 7154.
Wednesday,  March 21,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee
Review of the Past Year  (continued)
" 6.     That  the  University,  even  in the most difficult of situations should
continue: (a) to support some important new programs; (b) to support programs
which had been started with external funds and commitments (at the present time
the funding arrangements for any proposed new program are subject to a careful
review to assure their adequacy); (c) to increase the funds available for research;
(d) to continue to provide a modest contingency fund.
7. That tight control must be exercised over new faculty appointments and
low enrolment courses.
In fact faculty and staff salaries constitute approximately 85% of the
University's operating expenses. Thus the amount of flexibility that the
University has to pursue these principles is affected by the level of salary
increases. If salary levels increase at a higher percentage rate than the provincial
operating grant one, or more, of the principles may have to be qualified, or even
abandoned.
The reconstituted committee met in May to consider the University's
operating estimates for the 1979-80 fiscal year. The President explained the
general principles used in preparing the estimates. Naturally enough these
principles were similar to those proposed earlier in the year - but with some
important differences.
Both the President, and the Senate Budget Committee, appreciated that
recent University budgets have impaired the operation of the university. The
development of existing programs has been frustrated and the amounts available
for non-salary items (such as supplies and expenses) have fallen sharply below the
amounts actually needed in many departments. During a period of static
enrolments the Universities Council of British Columbia has taken the view that
the development of existing programs should be financed by the internal
reallocation of existing funds. It has allowed an increase of 1% for strengthening
existing programs. However it also deducts 1% for expected improvements in
operating efficiency. The position taken by the Universities Council assumes that
the University was, and is, a mature university with adequate funding for its
programs generally. This ignores the actual history of the University. In fact the
University experienced a period of rapid expansion in the sixties and many
programs were begun "on a shoe-string", without adequate funding. Without a
realistic increase in funding we cannot remedy those deficiencies without
weakening other programs. If this becomes a permanent condition we may have to
consider the drastic alternative of eliminating entire programs. The University's
best hope is to persuade the Universities Council of this University's real need for
additional funding for existing programs. The Universities Council has received a
consultant's report (the Hansen report) which confirms that this University has not
been adequately funded in the past. As a result of this report the Universities
Council made a special allocation of $1,200,000 for 1978-79. At this stage it is
not clear whether the Universities Council will continue to implement the
recommendations in the Hansen report. We hope that the special grant will be
continued, and augmented, over the next few years.
Among the specific items considered by the committee were the following: 7155.
Wednesday,   March 21,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee
Review of the Past Year  (continued)
"(I) Medical School Expansion Budget: The committee approved budgets dealing
with the operating expenses arising from the expansion of the medical school. The
government required separation of the medical school expansion budget from the
general university budget at all levels (within the University and at the
Universities Council) and an assurance has been given that the University's general
operating grants will not be adversely affected because substantial additional
funds are required to finance the expansion of the medical school.
(2) New Programs: Given the limited flexibility in the University budget it is
critically important that new programs be approved by Senate in time for those
programs to be submitted to the Universities Council with a request for additional
funding. New programs for 1980-81 had to be approved by Senate and submitted
to the Universities Council by January 31, 1979. Some concern was expressed that
the University community did not appreciate the fiscal realities of the current
situation. University committees considering the academic merits of proposed
new programs should be reminded of the relevant deadlines if additional funding is
required - and asked to work within such deadlines.
(3) Programs of Distinction: One of the few opportunities for any flexibility in
the university budget consists of the allocations for "programs of excellence",
more recently renamed "programs of distinction". There is no assurance that
there will be continuing grants for such programs. Meanwhile the University
supports a continuation of such funding and a clarification of the programs eligible
for funding.
(4) Library: Recognizing the strong support within the University (which found
expression in Senate on several occasions) for the maintenance and expansion of
the University library, special efforts were made to maintain adequate funds for
the library. It was noted that the library was facing special problems because of
the dual impact of (i) inflation and (ii) the decline in value of the Canadian
dollar.
(5) Non-Salary Items: The committee appreciated that the factors adversely
affecting the library were also affecting many non-salary items. Unfortunately
the University budget did not permit substantial increases in the funds available
for supplies and equipment. The President's office is encouraging reallocation of
funds within faculty budgets. However it is recognized that the present position is
unsatisfactory and that further consideration of the problem will be required. It is
clear that some faculties are very seriously affected by this problem.
Problem of Continuity: In discussing the role of the committee it was noted that
the committee is particularly active during the spring term. In 1978 it became
evident that the efficient functioning of the committee would be affected by the
triennial elections of faculty members of Senate. The last meeting of the "old"
Senate was in March. The new Senate met in April and it approved the
recommendations of the Senate Nominating Committee at the Senate meeting on
May 24. The newly constituted Senate Budget Committee met almost
immediately to consider the University's operating estimates for the 1979-80
fiscal year.   Obviously there was some "hiatus" in the committee's activities until 7156.
Wednesday,  March 21,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee
Review of the Past Year
Problem of Continuity (continued)
Senate formally approved the Nominating Committee's recommendations
concerning the membership of the Budget Committee. Moreover only one member
of the re-constituted Budget Committee had previous experience on the
committee. So a relatively new committee had to become operational before new
committee members had been allowed much of an opportunity to become familiar
with the statistical and budgetary data available to the committee. The
committee considered, but rejected, several proposals for alleviating this problem
(e.g. expansion of the committee; addition of non-senate members). There was
concern that these proposals would impair the general operating efficiency of the
committee so that the cure would be more harmful than the disease. It is normal
Senate practice for a Senate committee to continue to function with its existing
membership until Senate has approved the new members of the committee. While
recognizing that this is not an ideal solution to the problem - because the
committee will be reconstituted during a period of the year when it is likely to be
particularly active - the committee was unable to suggest any improvement to
existing practices."
During the following discussion the Chairman emphasized the importance of
meeting the deadline dates for the submission of proposals for new programs.
On behalf of Senate the Chairman expressed thanks and appreciation for the work
done by the committee.
Curriculum Committee (See Appendix 'B')
Dr. Wisenthal presented the report. The committee recommended approval of:
changes in the First Year of the M.B.A. program; new courses and course changes
submitted by the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration; a proposal to
offer an M.A. program in Family Studies submitted by the Faculty of Graduate
Studies; and proposed changes in the four-year B.S.N, program submitted by the
School of Nursing.
In referring to the proposals of the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration Dr. Wisenthal stated that although the committee recommended
approval of Commerce 31 I they felt that since it was a statistics course it should also
be considered by the ad hoc Committee on Statistics.
The committee recommended that the following amendments be made to the
proposal for the M.A. in Family Studies:
(i)      That the statement on admissions be modified.
(ii)     That   the   prerequisite  for   Family   Studies   522   be  "Mathematics   203  or
equivalent and a course in behavioural research methods",
(iii)    That the unit value of the thesis be 3/6c. 7157.
Wednesday,  March 21,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
It was also pointed out that there would be revisions to the courses listed in
Appendix I and II of the proposal after consultation with the Faculties and
Departments involved.
The committee recommended approval of the proposed changes in the Nursing
program subject to the following:
(i) The item "Physical Education 203 Conditioning Programs" appearing in the
Second and Third Years of the revised program to be replaced by the item
"Additional unit (I)" on the understanding that specific courses now being
developed will be available for listing in the Calendar by the time the
Second and Third Years of the program are implemented.
(ii) The item "Pharmacology (1.5)" and the present footnote referring to it to be
replaced by "Additional units (Pharmacology) (1.5)" on the understanding
that a specific course now being developed will be available for listing in the
Calendar by the time the Second Year of the program is implemented.
(iii) The term "Free" to be dropped from the "Free Elective" appearing in the
Second, Third and Fourth Years of the revised program.
(iv)    The description of the proposed course Nursing 409 to be changed to read:
"This course will provide students with an opportunity to increase knowledge
and skills in an identified area of clinical interest pertaining to nursing.
Students will work under the guidance of faculty with specific expertise in
the area."
Dr. Wisenthal )        That  the  proposals  submitted  by  the  Faculty of
Dean Larkin   )        Commerce    and    Business     Administration,     the
Faculty   of   Graduate  Studies  and  the  School   of
Nursing be approved.

Nominating Committee
Dr. Stager presented the report concerning recommendations for membership on
the ad hoc Committee on Post-baccalaureate Professional Programs. At the
February 14, 1979 meeting of Senate it was agreed that an ad hoc committee be
established to recommend criteria for the selection of credentials for future
post-baccalaureate professional programs.
The Nominating Committee recommended the following membership:
Dr. T. D. Heaver
Dean P. A. Larkin
Dr. C. A. McDowell
Dean B. E. Riedel
Dr. S. O. Russell
Mr. D. W. Smith

Carried
Admissions Committee
English admission requirement for applicants from Grade 12 British Columbia
Secondary Schools
Dr. Finnegan presented the following report:-
"The Senate, on April 21, 1976, ordered that the Basic Composition Workshop be
terminated by August 1979 and that "beginning in September 1979, admission to
U.B.C. be limited to students demonstrating basic competence in English
Composition or whose work in subjects other than English is demonstrably
outstanding". The Senate Admissions Committee was charged with the task of
recommending admission procedures to accomplish this objective.
The Committee has failed to find a satisfactory resolution of the problem of
identifying applicants relative to their capacity to demonstrate basic competence
in English Composition. The tools necessary to identify this "capacity" do not
exist. The use of any screening test for applicants, on the part of the University,
is precluded by the cost of producing and administering unambiguous
examinations. Moreover, the present philosophy of the Ministry of Education,
Science and Technology does not encompass the establishment of any province-
wide evaluation of literacy that would assist in university admissions.
Under the circumstances the Committee suggests that Senate approve what may
be described as "a step in the right direction". The Committee believes that the
following proposal will not only provide some amelioration of the problem but also
will indicate to applicants and their schools that the University expects a better
than average competence in English in its students. There is, of course, always
the possibility that the Ministry may in time be persuaded to have schools indicate
on transcripts of student records some understandable criterion relating to
literacy which could be incorporated into admission procedures.
Proposal
That beginning in September 1980 applicants from Grade 12, B.C., be
admitted only if their standing in English 12 is 'C+' or better, except that
those with a gradepoint average on the ten-course calculation of at least 3.0
be admitted if their English 12 standing is 'C or better, and those with a 3.5
average be admitted if their English 12 is 'P' or better
and further
That a comprehensive report be made to Senate no later than October 1984
of the effect of this regulation on failure rates in English 100 and in first
year university.
The recommended implementation date of September 1980 is made with a view to
giving applicants adequate warning. Under the circumstances the Session 1979-80
could see an abnormally high failure rate in English 100. The Committee would
expect that ample publicity would be given to the services provided by the Centre
for Continuing Education for the up—grading of writing skills, and that entering
students having a standing in English 12 of 'C+' or lower would be warned of their
vulnerability in view of experience of former students in English 100." 7159.
Wednesday,   March 21,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
English admission requirement for applicants from Grade   12 British Columbia
Secondary Schools (continued)
Dr. Finnegan ) That beginning in September 1980 applicants from
Dr. Brearley ) Grade 12, B.C., be admitted only if their standing
in English 12 is *C+' or better, except that those
with a gradepoint average on the ten-course
calculation of at least 3.0 be admitted if their
English 12 standing is 'C* or better, and those with
a 3.5 average be admitted if their English 12 is a 'P'
or better
and further
That a comprehensive report be made to Senate no
later than October 1984 of the effect of this
regulation on failure rates in English 100 and in
first year University.
During the following debate opinions were expressed that the proposal of the
Admissions Committee would not solve the problem and that Senate should decide
whether the University should be relying exclusively on the Grade 12 English mark
or whether there ought to be some kind of examination in addition to the use of
this mark.
It was noted that if the Admissions Committee's proposal had been
implemented in 1977/78, 215 students would have been excluded from admission to
the University. Of this number 101 passed English 100, some of whom had
received remedial assistance through the Basic Composition Workshop.
After considerable discussion the motion was put and lost.
Concern was expressed that no solution to the problem had been found. The
Chairman proposed that he discuss the matter with Dr. Finnegan, Chairman of the
Admissions Committee, and report back to Senate at the next meeting.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
Proposal to establish The Albert E. Hall Chair in Finance
Dean Lusztig ) That   the   Albert   E.   Hall   Chair   in   Finance   be
Dr. Heaver     ) established at The University of British Columbia.
It was stated in the proposal that the Chair had been made possible by capital
grants from the Bank of British Columbia and other members of the local financial
community, and was aimed at supporting the scholarly activities of the Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration.
The motion was put and carried. 7160.
Wednesday,   March 21,   1979.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration (continued)
Change in the B.Com./LL.B. degree regulations
Dean Lusztig ) That students who, after completing three years in
Dr. Heaver     ) the Commerce and Law option at U.B.C, enter the
Faculty of Law at the University of Victoria for
studies leading to the LL.B., be awarded the
B.Com. degree on completion of the Second Year in
the Faculty of Law at that University.
It was explained in the proposal that under the terms of the joint B.Com./LL.B.
degree program, students may proceed through the first three years of Commerce in
the Commerce/Law option and then, if accepted, enter the Faculty of Law for their
LL.B. On successful completion of the second year of Law they will be granted the
B.Com. degree.  The LL.B. is granted on completion of their third Law year.
This route is presently open only to U.B.C. Commerce students proceeding through
the U.B.C. Law School. The University of Victoria now has a Faculty of Law and a
three year program leading to the LL.B. The program has the status of "an approved
law school" by the governing bodies of the legal profession in the common law
provinces.
An analysis of the U.B.C. and University of Victoria law programs indicated that
they could be equated in coverage and length of programs. It would seem reasonable
to allow a student commencing in the U.B.C. B.Com. program to transfer into a law
program offered by another B.C. university where that program was equivalent to the
U.B.C. LL.B. degree.
The motion was put and carried.
Faculty of Dentistry
Diploma in Periodontics
On May 25, 1977 Senate approved a proposal by the Faculty of Dentistry to offer a
Certification Program in Periodontics which could be taken in conjunction with the
M.Sc. (Dental Science) program.
Dean Beagrie explained that the Faculty now wished to award the Diploma in
Periodontics to those students who graduated from the certification program.
Dean Beagrie )        That  students   who  graduate  from   the  two—year
Dr. Silver )        Certification Program in Periodontics be awarded
the Diploma in Periodontics.

Agreement between the Faculty of Medicine and Children's Hospital
The following statement of affiliation between The University of British Columbia
and Children's Hospital had been circulated:- 7161.
Wednesday,   March 21,   1979.
Faculty of Medicine
Agreement between the Faculty of Medicine and Children's Hospital  (continued)
Introduction
Recognizing that the aim of the Hospital is to create a setting in which the highest
quality of health care can be provided for adolescents and children, and that the aim
of the University is to provide the highest possible standards of education and
research in the health sciences, and that these two purposes can lend support to one
another, the Hospital and the University affirm the following statement of affiliation
which it is believed will enhance the objectives of both parties to this Agreement:
This Agreement constitutes a general affiliation agreement. Any specific
arrangements from time to time mutually agreed upon between the parties to this
Agreement will be included in Schedules to be attached to and forming part of this
Agreement.
As both parties to this Agreement have some goals which are not necessarily in
common between them, it will be necessary to ensure that the pursuit of these
variant goals will not interfere with the function of either party.
It is paramount that the Hospital, which has a substantial service function, be not
impaired in its relationship to that function and to the practising profession by the
University, whose focus may not include medical service. It must therefore follow
that maximum and top level consultation be maintained between the parties to this
Agreement and that a means be established to arbitrate any serious differences that
may arise between them.
It is agreed as follows:
Joint Representation
1. All members of the staff of the Hospital who are assigned regular University
teaching duties will hold appropriate faculty rank and will participate in a
manner appropriate to such rank in the decision making processes of the Faculty
of Medicine of the University in such matters affecting promotion, budget
distribution, and organization of teaching.
2. That if no member of the teaching staff of the Hospital is, by the normal
process, elected to serve on the executive of the Faculty of Medicine, then the
teaching faculty of the Hospital shall have the right to elect one of their number
to serve on the executive of the Faculty of Medicine.
3. That the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine of the University shall nominate a
representative from the Faculty of Medicine to serve on the Medical Advisory
Committee of the Hospital.
4. That the Administrator of the Hospital, or his delegate, shall be a member of the
Health Sciences Co-ordinating Committee of the University.
5. That the President of the University shall be entitled to recommend an
appropriate nominee to serve on the Board of Directors of the Hospital.
Heads of Clinical Departments and Divisions
6. That, where an academic teaching program is carried out by a clinical
department and/or division at the Hospital, the head of the clinical department
and/or the director of the division of the Hospital shall be appointed by written
agreement between the Hospital and the University. 7162.
Wednesday,  March 21,   1979.
Faculty of Medicine
Agreement between the Faculty of Medicine and Children's Hospital
Heads of Clinical Departments and Divisions (continued)
7. That the heads of clinical departments and where appropriate divisions of the
Hospital shall normally hold geographic full-time appointments in the Faculty of
Medicine of the University and that policy shall be to ensure that such
appointments carry an appropriate component of salary from the academic
budget of the University.
8. That the head of a clinical department or head of a clinical division of the
Hospital, whether or not he/she be head of the academic and clinical department
or division at the University, shall be responsible to the Hospital for the quality
of care given by all categories of medical staff within his/her department or
division for all patients, and to the University for the quality of the educational
programs and research activities of his/her department or division.
Appointments
9. That for all new teaching members of the active staff of the Hospital to be
appointed to departments involved in teaching, the head of the University
department concerned shall be consulted in advance of the appointment
concerning the recommendation to be made in respect of the staff member for a
faculty position.
10. That the final determination in respect to appointment of the medical staff of
the Hospital rests with the Board of Directors of the Hospital, and that the final
decision in respect to a faculty appointment rests with the Board of Governors at
the University. It is further agreed that neither party to this Agreement shall
withdraw an academic or a Hospital appointment without prior consultation with
the other party.
Continuing Education
I I. That the Hospital shall designate members of the Health Science Faculties who
shall be responsible for the organization of continuing education programs in
their respective professions. Such designated members of the staff shall be
members of the appropriate committee responsible for continuing education in
the Health Sciences at the University, and programs of continuing education
should normally be structured collaboratively between the Hospital and the
Division of Continuing Education in the Health Sciences of the University.
Resident Education
12. That the assignment of residents for training in the integrated departmental
programs will be the responsibility of the Faculty of Medicine Department Head
in consultation and agreement with the Head of the Hospital Department
concerned and the Hospital Medical Staff Education Committee.
The education, training, and supervision of these residents will be the
responsibility of the Head of the Hospital Department or Division concerned
under the direction of the Faculty of Medicine Department Head.
Integrated residency training programs will be conducted in accordance with the
requirements and regulations of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of
Canada, and the College of Family Physicians of Canada for approved affiliated
programs.
The Hospital undertakes to provide adequate space and facilities, where feasible,
within the Hospital for the conduct of such residency training programs as are
agreed to by the Hospital and the University. 7163.

Faculty of Medicine
Agreement between the Faculty of Medicine and Children's Hospital
Resident Education (continued)
A representative of the Hospital's administration and individual program
directors of residency training programs shall be ex-officio members of the
Faculty Residency Committee.
Medical Student Education
13. That decisions concerning medical undergraduate teaching shall be the
responsibility of the head of the appropriate department of the Hospital, or his
delegate, acting together with the head of the appropriate department of the
University, or his delegate.
Clinical Teaching
14. That it shall be understood that all patients admitted to the Hospital will be
available for teaching, subject to the discretion of the physician in charge of the
patient and the consent of the patient who shall have attained the age of 19
years, or the consent of the parent or guardian of the patient who has not
attained the age of 19 years.
The Hospital shall determine the maximum number of undergraduate and
postgraduate students in various health science disciplines which can be
accommodated within limits of space, case material, and due consideration of
the patient's rights.
Quality of Patient Care
15. That the responsibility of the quality of patient care at the Hospital rests with
its Board of Directors and therefore the determination of which clinical services
it shall or shall not provide is the responsibility of the Hospital. The
development of programs of exemplary patient care, education and research, is
only possible when facilities are excellent and personnel are of the highest
quality. The Hospital and the University agree therefore to make every effort to
maintain such facilities and personnel considered to be essential to the quality of
services to the patient and to programs of education and research.
Research
16. That it is the policy of the University and the Hospital to encourage the

Changes in the four-year B.S.N, program
On September 13, 1978, the Senate approved a proposal from the School of
Nursing to discontinue the two year diploma program in nursing effective

first two years.

organization of course content appropriate to the new conditions. There is also
more opportunity for selection of courses from other Faculties.
