Business arising from the Minutes
William Alexander MacKenzie Scholarship  (P. 7887)
A query had been raised at the previous meeting concerning the restrictive nature
of the William Alexander MacKenzie Scholarship. Senate was informed that the
donor had been contacted and that he did not wish to change any of the details
concerning the award.
Status of account receivable - Health Sciences Centre Hospital Society (P. 7893)
As requested at the previous meeting, the President reported on the status of the
amount of $1.27 million owing from the U.B.C. Health Sciences Centre Hospital. He
stated that the Board of Governors, at its October meeting, had directed the
Secretary of the Board to write to the Hospital requesting on behalf of the Board
payment of the $1.27 million. The Hospital Society were trying to secure the funds
from Victoria and it was hoped that payment would be received in the near future.
In response to a request, the President stated that he would be willing to give a
further report at the February meeting.
Memorial Minute
The Chairman read to Senate a letter received from Mrs. Beatrice McGavin
expressing appreciation for the tribute paid to her late husband, Allan Morton
McGavin.

University study program being sought. (See the publication "Admissions Guide"
for a complete listing of prescribed and recommended courses for each degree
program offered.)
2. That the provisions of the statement in Recommendation #1 be implemented for
September 1984 and that applicants for September 1983 be considered for
admission on the basis of either the provisions as they now exist in the Calendar or
the provisions in Recommendation #1.
Comment
In September 1977 the Senate Admissions Committee reported to Senate that the
admission policy in effect at that time was not providing adequate guidance to
secondary school students in selecting a broad academic background appropriate for
University study. The Committee, therefore, made recommendations for a more
structured pattern of courses to be required of secondary school applicants which
were subsequently approved by Senate: 7916.

and four courses, three of which must be number "12" chosen from
among courses listed in the curriculum in the category 'Arts and
Science'.
The following implementation schedule was also approved.
(i)      for admission in September 1978 - calculation of standing be on the best ten
relevant subjects.
(ii)     for admission  in September   1979, the  three courses numbered "12" from
'Arts and Science' be required.
(iii)    for admission in September 1981, Algebra I I, a Science 11, and French 11 or
a foreign language I I, be required.
Having had several years experience with the revised admission requirements, the
committee undertook a review of the requirements in the Fall of 1982. Consultations
were held with the Deans of Arts, Science, Education and representatives of the
Ministry of Education and the British Columbia Teacher's Federation. In addition, the
committee was in possession of the views of several subject area teacher groups.
The Committee concluded that given the subject requirements of the Ministry of
Education coupled with U.B.C.'s admission requirements, there is little flexibility in
Grades I I and 12 for students to enrol for other broadening subjects in a usual
fourteen to sixteen subject program, therefore the committee resolved to recommend
this modification of the University's admission requirements."
Dr. Smith      ) That recommendations I and 2 be approved.
Dr. Dahlie     )
In presenting the recommendations of the committee, Dr. Smith referred to
the new admission requirements implemented in 1981 and stated that Senate had
been convinced at that time that a number of students being admitted to the
University were not well prepared for university studies and the admission
requirements adopted in 1981 were a response to that situation. Furthermore, it
had been expected that a 16 course graduation program would prevail in the
secondary schools and it was felt that while the requirements for admission to
U.B.C. were rather restrictive, a 16 course package would provide flexibility in
the average student's program.  However, over the years there had been an erosion 7917.
Wednesday,  January  19,   1983.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Modification of Admission Requirements for Applicants from Grade 12, B.C. and
Yukon Secondary Schools  (continued)
of this flexibility due to the introduction of additional graduation requirements by
the Ministry of Education. As a result of a review of the existing admission
requirements and discussions with the Deans of the Faculties that admit students
directly from secondary school, the Admissions Committee recommended the
modifications outlined in the report.
During the discussion that followed, it was noted that while the present
admission requirements may not have had an appreciable influence on the
performance of students in secondary schools they had not had a negative
influence on the enrolment at U.B.C. The requirements had, however, created a
number of concerns in the secondary schools and had in effect narrowed the
selection of courses. It was felt that the revised requirements were an
improvement in that they freed one course which would make it possible for
secondary school students to better balance their programs.
Some members felt that if fewer courses had been specified as a basis for
calculating the gradepoint average, a more accurate prediction of the
performance of students would be possible.
The hope was also expressed that the Admissions Committee would consider
further the possibility of including the visual and performing arts and fine arts in
the U.B.C. admission requirements.
The motion was put and carried.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration - change in Pre-Commerce
Option Requirements
The following proposal to change the option requirements of Pre—Commerce
had been circulated (the changes are underlined):
Students who apply to enter the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration must have completed 15 units, including English 100,
Economics 100, and 3 units chosen from Mathematics 100 and 101, 111, or 140 and
141. Credit will not be granted for Mathematics 105, 203, or 204. Students should
note the English Composition requirements of the Faculty. Electives may not be
taken from courses in Commerce and Business Administration.
Students who completed Mathematics 130 may be admitted but will be required to
take Mathematics 140, 141 in first year Commerce in lieu of 3 units of electives. 7918.

Admissions Committee
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration - change in Pre-Commerce
Option Requirements (continued)
The committee recommended approval of the proposal, subject to the
following:
the   addition   of   Mathematics   120   and    121    to   the   list   of   acceptable
Mathematics courses
approval by Senate of Mathematics 140 and 141
the wording "credit will not be granted for Mathematics 105, 203 or 204" in
the second sentence being replaced by:
"Mathematics  105, 203 and 204 are not acceptable for inclusion in the
15 units on which admission to this program is based."

Faculty of Education - proposal to establish a special admissions category for
applicants to the NITEP program
The following proposal to establish a special admissions category for
applicants to the Native Indian Teacher Education Program had been circulated:
PROPOSED ADDITION
Special admission. Students who cannot be admitted under Regular or Mature
Student Entrance, but nevertheless show strong potential according to the criteria
listed, may be admitted to the program. Strong recommendation from his/her
local community will be necessary. A student in this category will require the
recommendation of the NITEP screening committee and the Faculty Admissions
Committee.
It was stated in the material circulated that the primary guideline would be
to find a balance between admitting as many promising students as possible, and
not admitting such students before they could benefit adequately from the
program.
Dr. Smith )     That the proposal of the Faculty of Education to
Dean Finnegan    )      establish    a    special    admissions    category    for
applicants to the NITEP program not be approved.
Dr. Smith explained that the Admissions Committee had for some time been
uncomfortable with the use of the mature student admissions category to make
decisions on students who graduated from secondary school in June for admission 7919.

requirements of the University.
After further discussion the motion was put and carried 35:28 with 8
abstentions.
School of Nursing - change of deadline date for applications from Registered
Nurses
It was stated in the material circulated that the present deadlines of
November I was earlier than any other University deadline and created some
difficulties for prospective students who were unaware of it. Since the admission
process had been simplified the long lead-in time was not needed. Current RN
students state that six months notice is needed to make plans, so that a later date
than February would not seem appropriate.
Dr. Smith     ) That the deadline for submission of applications
Dr. Kelly      ) from registered nurses for admission (to the BSN
program)     be     moved     from     November I     to
February I    beginning   with   the   class   entering
September 1984.

Faculty of Applied Science - new courses, course and program changes
Dr. Richards       )      That the new courses, course and program changes
Dean Wedepohl  )      recommended by the Faculty of Applied Science
be approved.
Carried
Faculty of Applied Science - Four-Year Engineering Program and revised Five-
Year Engineering Physics Program
Dr. Richards   ) That   the   proposal   of   the   Faculty   of  Applied
Dr. Adams       ) Science   to   introduce   a   Four—Year   Engineering
Program   and   a   revised   Five-Year   Engineering
Physics Program not be approved.
In speaking to the motion, Dr. Richards explained that the proposals had
initially been considered by a subcommittee of the Senate Curriculum Committee
and that the subcommittee had ultimately resolved to recommend to the full
committee that the proposals not be approved. The reasons had been detailed in a
memo to the Associate Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science who had attended
a number of the subcommittee meetings. When the full committee had met to
consider the proposals and the recommendation of the subcommittee,
representatives of the Faculty of Applied Science and the Departments of
Chemistry and Physics were invited to attend. A point by point discussion of the
issues raised by the subcommittee took place at that meeting, after which a
motion to recommend that the proposals not be approved was carried by a vote of
7 to 5.
The Associate Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science subsequently
responded, proposing further modifications to the proposals. The committee,
however, had not formally reviewed the proposed modifications because of time
constraints.
Dr. Richards outlined the concerns of the committee. The first area of
concern was with regard to the justification on academic grounds of changing
from a five-year to a four-year program. The view that a significant number of
Grade 12, B.C. students had the desire and ability to complete the proposed
four—year program entering directly from high school was offered by the Faculty
as some rationalization. As far as any loss of breadth or depth of education was
concerned it was felt that those losses would be insignificant, and in some
instances the subject matter omitted could be covered in advance degree
programs for those wishing further specialization. 7922.
Wednesday,  January  19,   1983.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Applied Science - Four-Year Engineering Program and revised Five-
Year Engineering Physics Program (continued)
Secondly, there were a number of concerns in connection with the first year
of the revised program.  These are outlined below:
(a) concern was expressed at the reduction in the basic first year chemistry
exposure from 3 units to 2 units, with concurrent reductions in laboratory
experience and exposure to inorganic and organic chemistry;
(b) concern that the subject matter of electricity and magnetism was not going
to be contained within the Civil Engineering program, although the proposed
addition (circulated at the meeting) would seem to resolve this problem;
(c) concern was expressed about the readiness of students coming directly from
high school to handle the proposed common first year program of 19 units
without adversely affecting standards. In particular the committee was
concerned that although the intent was to admit only students with a
gradepoint average of 3.2 or higher, there could be circumstances that would
cause a lowering of admission criteria in the future. (It was noted that in
the supplementary material circulated concerning admission requirements,
application required only a gradepoint average of 2.5). In addition the
proposed continuing admission of students to first year Applied Science on
transfer from first year Science into equivalent programs could put the
student at a competitive disadvantage because of the difference in
preparation in mathematics and physics and other general material because
the transfer route proposes to admit students to the first year of the
program where they would be taking the same courses as first—year students
even though they are better prepared than the first-year students.
(d) A particular issue of concern was the scheduling of the subject matter of
thermodynamics in the first year. The original proposal called for some
students to take Physics 150, the thermodynamics and wave course, in the
first term of the first year and there was some concern that those taking it
in the first term would not be adequatley prepared in mathematics. The
committee had received assurances that the deficiency in preparation could
be accommodated. However, the committee had not met formally to
consider this revision to the proposal. Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
7923.
Wednesday,  January  19,   1983.
Faculty of Applied Science - Four-Year Engineering Program and revised Five-
Year Engineering Physics Program  (continued)
(e) The committee was also concerned that students who completed first year
Science would have the opportunity to apply for admission to the Four—Year
Engineering Program and to complete the program in the least amount of
time consistent with their preparation. The proposal called for a continuing
flow of students to the four-year program from first year Science or its
equivalent, with student receiving somewhere between 8 and I I units of
credit, not counting advanced credit for first year Physics. The committee
felt that some rationalization of the Physics offerings between Science and
Applied Science might be possible in order to reduce the unit deficiency
even futher and perhaps create a situation whereby students could catch up
over a spring or summer session and be eligible to enter directly into second
year Applied Science. The Committee had been informed that discussions
were taking place involving one of the community colleges in order to
facilitate the transfer from first year Science to Applied Science without
loss in time to students.  However, nothing was yet firmly established.
The third area of concern was the lack of flexibility in some of the
programs. The subcommittee had suggested that each student, in each of the last
three years, should take 3 units of courses not directly related to engineering. In
addition it was felt that each student should have a number of additional electives
relevant to the field of study. There was particular concern about the Mechanical
Engineering program which had only Ife units of electives. There was no
consistent policy across all the programs with regard to breadth courses or
technical electives. One of the sacrifices in moving to a four-year program was
the reduction in technical electives.
The fourth and fifth areas of concern were not as substantive but concern
was expressed that in some programs, particularly Civil Engineering, there was no
guarantee that students in one field of engineering would ever have contact with
other fields of engineering. Finally, the subcommittee had expressed concern at
the large number of courses in some of the programs. The committee had been
informed, however, that the contact hours rarely exceeded 30 per week in any
program. Nevertheless, the committee was concerned about the number of
examinations that would have to be prepared for. 7924.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Applied Science - Four-Year Engineering Program and revised Five-
Year Engineering Physics Program (continued)
Dr. Richards emphasized that the committee had endeavoured to focus
attention only on the academic curricular aspects of the proposals and while there
were no firm guidelines of policy with respect to several of the issues raised, the
committee felt that they were substantive enough to be brought to Senate's
attention.
Commenting for the Faculty of Applied Science, Dean Wedepohl stated that
the Faculty had made some changes to the existing four-year program to make it
more flexible and therefore more accessible to those students qualified to enter
the Faculty directly from high school but this would not deny students the right to
take the five-year program if they so choose. He stated that the Faculty felt they
were maintaining a very high quality program and also pointed out that in other
provinces students were admitted directly from Grade 12 into four-year
engineering programs.
Dr. Meisen, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences, was invited
to comment on behalf of the Faculty. He stated that the program proposals had
been developed over a period of three years and that intensive consultation had
taken place not only within the engineering departments but also with the
Departments of Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Computer Science which
are the major service departments that contribute to the engineering programs.
At the request of the Senate Curriculum Committee subcommittee, the
question was considered as to how students might transfer into engineering having
successfully completed first year Science at U.B.C. or elsewhere. That had been
done and was incorporated in material circulated at the meeting. It was proposed
that those students from first year Science would go into first year engineering
with a number of advanced credits, which would lighten their load considerably
compared to students entering directly from Grade 12. However, it was felt that
all students in first year engineering should have comparable loads since this had
an important bearing on the decision of admission to the various branches of
engineering which is made on completion of first year engineering.
The other aspect of transferability examined at the request of the
subcommittee was that of the possibility of offering specialized courses during the
summer months to enable students with advanced credit to go directly into second
year engineering and complete the program in four years.  The Faculty was not in 7925.

a position to offer such courses during the summer but was prepared, if Senate so
wished, to explore the possibility of an outside institution offering the necessary
courses. Dr. Meisen concluded his remarks with comments on the material
distributed at the meeting.
In reply to a query concerning the Five—Year Engineering Physics Program,
it was explained that it would be impossible to complete the number of units
contained in that program in four years and that to attempt to "prune" the
program in any way would reduce the accreditation granted by the accreditation
board.
Dr. Suedfeld stated that many of the objections raised by the committee had
been addressed in the material circulated at the meeting and that the proposed
modifications, in some respects, resolved the differences and objections, therefore
making the program more acceptable. However, since the modifications had not
been considered by the Senate Curriculum Committee he felt that it would be
inappropriate to ask Senate to make a decision on the proposals at this meeting.
Dr. Suedfeld ) That   the   proposals   of   the   Faculty   of   Applied
Dr. Adams     ) Science     be     referred     back     to     the    Senate

In reply to a query the Chairman stated that it was hoped that the
committee would report further on these proposals at the February meeting.

Faculty of Graduate Studies
Calendar statement on Mental Retardation Studies
Dean Larkin explained that for some years there existed on campus an
organization known as the British Columbia Mental Retardation Institute. It had no
formal status at the University but it was a name given to some activities that had
been originally funded in 1967, Centennial Year, and subsequently assisted by
provision of funds for a building by the Variety Club. This was an administratively
unsatisfactory arrangement and a year ago Dean Riedel and Dean Larkin were
appointed as a review committee to make recommendations. One of the
recommendations made was that the academic activities that have been going on
under this rubric should quite properly be done by a committee in the Faculty of
Graduate Studies. Dr. Nancy Schwartz of the School of Home Economics and
Dr. Woolf of the Department of Psychiatry had crystallized a group of people
interested in Mental Retardation Studies and presented the following statement which
will indicate that there is a group of people on campus who do mental retardation
work and who are prepared to counsel students and assist them in their programs, and
who have activities to which the attention of students should be drawn.
"The Mental Retardation Studies Committee consists of faculty members from
several disciplines with special interests in diverse aspects of mental retardation.
Representatives from Psychology, Dentistry, Home Economics, Law, Medical
Genetics, Nursing, Pediatrics, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Physical Education and
Recreation, Psychiatry, Rehabilitation Medicine, Social Work, and Special

Calendar statement on Mental Retardation Studies (continued)
"concerning mental retardation. The Departments and Schools involved may be
those of the committee members, or others appropriate to the special research
area proposed. A reference library and study facilities are available on campus in
the Berwick Centre. The committee also offers seminars by faculty members and
invited speakers on interdisciplinary aspects of mental retardation, and serves as a
resource within the University and the community.
Students must satisy the specific entrance requirements of the faculty(ies)
involved as well as the general entrance requirements of the Faculty of Graduate
Studies. As the committee has wide representation, studies in this area may have
considerable scope, and can be tailored to the needs of the individual students."

University budqet
A Senator asked the President about the financial status of the University for the
current year. In reply, he indicated that the University faced a shortfall of
approximately $700,000 per annum, beginning April I, 1983, assuming there is no
increase in the provincial grant for general operating purposes. The sum of $700,000
may become larger because negotiations on salaries were not complete for one major
collective bargaining unit.
It will be necessary to reduce continuing operating costs by this amount in order
to meet the government's edict which dictates that the University cannot make
continuing commitments into the next fiscal year in excess of its ability to pay with
its current level of funding. The administration is in the process of meeting with
Deans and other senior administrators in order to make the necessary budgetary
adjustments. 7928.

Noon-hour Lectures
Dean Lusztig drew Senate's attention to a motion passed in April 1982 requesting
the Registrar to ensure that as few lectures as possible be scheduled at 12:30 p.m. on
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. He stated that it was his understanding
that the number of lectures scheduled during these periods had increased since the
motion had been passed and requested the Registrar to report on this matter at the
next meeting.
Vancouver Foundation
Dr. Martin, Principal of the Vancouver School of Theology, informed Senate that
the Vancouver Foundation had provided $500,000 in support of the humanities at
U.B.C  Senate agreed that a letter of thanks and appreciation be sent to the donors.

Course and curriculum proposals
FACULTY OF AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES
Agricultural Economics
Program changes:
The Department offers opportunities for study leading to the Bachelor of Science
(B.Sc. (Agr.)) and Master of Science (M.Sc.) degrees. Students interested in the
Ph.D. may register in the Faculty of Graduate Studies through the Department of
Economics where their program of study and thesis will be supervised jointly be
members of the Department of Economics and the Department of Agricultural
Economics.
The student in Agricultural Economics is expected to obtain a broad perspective
and technical knowledge to facilitate an understanding of agricultural
opportunities. Specifically, all graduates should be familiar with microeconomic
and macroeconomic theory, production and marketing aspects of primary
agriculture, and be capable of using quantitative tools of analysis.
Three areas of specialization are available at the Bachelor's level:
(I) management, (2) applied economics, and (3) rangeland resources. Students
interested in practical agriculture and careers in farm management, agribusiness
and aquacultural management can take courses emphasizing management.
Students interested in the agricultural industry, agricultural policy, or in research
can take courses emphasizing applied economics. Students can also specialize in
rangeland resource management (an interdisciplinary program).

SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
Changes to the B.Arch Program
In January 1981, Senate approved a detailed submission from the School of
Architecture for changes in the Bachelor of Architecture degree program to
convert it to a Master of Architecture degree program. Senate approved the
submission and it was forwarded to UCBC with a request for new program funding,
which was denied. On the basis of strong support of its case for new resources to
implement the changed program from the Architectural Institute of British
Columbia (AIBC) and the Commonwealth Association of Architects Visiting Board
(which reviewed the B.Arch program in February 1982) the proposed M.Arch
program was re-submitted to UCBC without change, and the request for new
program funding was again denied. 7937.

APPENDIX B'
SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
Changes to the B.Arch Program (continued)
After careful consideration of its capability with current resources, the School of
Architecture has no alternative but to recommend to Senate that the approved
proposal to upgrade the B.Arch program to an M.Arch program be shelved
indefinitely.
The purpose of this submission is to propose to Senate some changes, additions,
and deletions to the existing B.Arch program to be effective in September 1983,
which can be implemented with existing resources, which go part of the way
toward incorporating the proposed changes for the M.Arch program, and also
address the most important issues raised by the CAA Visiting Board.

Ph.D. Program in Social Foundations of Educational Policy
The Department of Social and Educational Studies, Faculty of Education, proposes
to offer a program of studies leading to a Ph.D. degree in the area of Social
Foundations of Educational Policy (SFEP). The program will prepare research
workers and theorists able to identify and to deal creatively and productively with
researchable questions pertaining to educational policy.
The Field of Study:  Definition and Historical Notes
Social foundations has long been an acknowledged term to encompass the areas of
research in North America faculties of education pursued collaboratively by
scholars in the history, philosophy and sociology of education and, sometimes, in
such related areas as comparative education. At U.B.C., social foundations of
educational policy as an area of study is intended to encompass the varied
interests in policy matters reflected by the research themes and expertise of the
Department of Social and Educational Studies.
These studies necessarily have their bases conjointly in a number of related or
sub-disciplines which include among others the history, philosophy and sociology
of education, sub-disciplines which reflect the normative and non—normative
nature of educational research including policy study.
Structure of the Program
Admission to the program would ordinarily depend upon the following
qualifications:
EITHER a Master's degree in history, in philosophy, in a social science or other
appropriate Arts subject, in the History or Philosophy or Sociology of
Education, in Social Studies Education - all these at First Class standing;
OR completion of an Honours degree in history, in philosophy, in a social
science or in another appropriate Arts subject at First Class standing;
OR completion of an appropriate Bachelor of Education degree program at
First Class standing and such additional  prerequisite work as may be
required.

Diploma in Meteorology
Requirements for the Diploma in Meteorology
The Diploma in Meteorology offers an intensive one—year program in theoretical
and applied Meteorology. It is designed for students with little or no background
in Meteorology who wish to direct their experience to environmental applications
or to seek employment as a meteorologist.
Admission is based on an acceptable academic record (usually a bachelor's degree
from a recognized university in physics, applied mathematics, engineering or
similar disciplines). Typically this should include about 13.5 units of mathematics
(up to introduction to partial differential equations) and computer science
(including some numerical analysis), and 10.5 units of physics.
The diploma program requires a minimum of 15 units of coursework in
atmospheric science. Each student will plan an individual program in consultation
with the Director of the Atmospheric Science program. For those with sufficient
mathematics and physics but no meteorology a typical program would include:
Atmospheric Science 440, 441, 442, Atmospheric Science/Geography 301, 302, 303
and Atmospheric Science/Oceanography 41 I and 414 plus 3 units from Geography
402, 403, 404, Mechanical Engineering 482, Oceanography 300, 401, Soil Science
414. An exemption of up to 6 units of credit for courses already taken will be
allowed. Students granted exemptions will be required to add electives of
appropriate undergraduate or graduate courses. Additional courses may be added
or substituted by the Director to make up the mathematics or physics background
of the student.  The total load is not to exceed 18 units.
Financial aid is available to non-U.B.C. students from the Natural Sciences and
Engineering Research Council/Atmospheric Environment Service Studentship
Program on a competitive basis.
