Minutes of the previous meeting
Dean Larkin) That the minutes of the Third regular meeting of
Dr. Pearse    ) Senate   for   the   Session    1977-78,   having   been
circulated be taken as read and adopted.
It was pointed out that the motion concerning the proposal to establish a Centre for
the Study of Childhood on page 6919 should have read ... "That the proposal of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies ..." not the Faculty of Medicine.
The motion was put and carried. 6927.
Wednesday,  December  14,   1977.
Business arising from the Minutes
Proposal to establish a Centre for the Study of Childhood  (P.69I9)
Discussion of the proposal had been postponed at the previous meeting. It was
stated in the proposal circulated to Senate that the centre would probably be named
The J. F. McCreary Centre for the study of childhood. The following is an extract
from the submission:-
"A facility of the type proposed for the McCreary Centre does not exist in Canada
today. Its purpose and function are not currently being served in any integrated
Canadian context.
1. Purpose: to stimulate and facilitate studies of childhood by providing a
resource centre for those involved in conducting such research.
2. Functions:      - to identify contemporary issues affecting Canada's children and,
by providing a medium for the exchange of ideas and
formulation of hypotheses, to contribute towards the resolution
of contemporary problems.
- to identify issues that require a polydisciplinary research
approach and to facilitate its conduct.
- to facilitate the research interests of local and/or visiting
scholars interested in studying the problems affecting children
in British Columbia.
- to disseminate information presently available about childhood
and about Canada's children.
- to foster communication between various individuals,
institutions, and organizations in Canada that are involved in
the study of childhood or in the problems of Canadian children.
- to examine the present knowledge base and teaching practices
currently employed by those interested in childhood.
Background
This submission represents the end product of more than one year's examination of
Centres interested in the broad field of child development. Centres in Canada and
the U.S. have been visited and Centres in the U.K., Europe and New Zealand have
been reviewed by correspondence.
The McCreary Centre proposal has been considered and subsequently supported by
the Department of Paediatrics, the Faculty Executive in Medicine, and the full
Faculty of Medicine. Discussions have also been held at many levels within the
University of British Columbia as well as with faculty of Simon Fraser and Victoria
Universities. A compendium of written and verbal comments has been gathered
from across Canada and the U.S.
The present proposal represents the thoughts and feedback from many sources and
is a modification of the initial McCreary Centre proposal. 6928.
Wednesday, December  14,   1977.
Business arising from the Minutes
Proposal to establish a Centre for the Study of Childhood  (continued)
"Justification
Paediatricians and other workers responsible for the care of children, not to
mention parents and families, are constantly faced with issues or situations where
factual information upon which to base policy decisions or actions is either nonexistent or unavailable. All too often the experts that are turned to at times of
need base their opinions upon individual and therefore subjective experience or
upon a perspective of childhood in which the child is a dependent creature.
The constantly shifting place of the child in society creates an awareness of the
need for information on child raising techniques that respond appropriately to these
shifts. Social planners and advocates of services for children who seek out factual
information on which to base program planning and child care philosophies quickly
identify the inadequacies of the present knowledge base.
For example, what are the immediate or long term problems created by such social
changes as: working mothers; increase in the number of single parent families;
rising divorce rates; changes in sexual mores; changes in the health status of
children; and technological changes as the introduction of television. The
improved mortality and morbidity picture in the developed nations of the world has
given rise to the growing importance of behavioural problems in clinical practice.
It is important that these types of problems and the impact of the many social
changes of our era be studied in a long term situation. Hopefully this will give rise
to a more rational approach to child raising policies and provide an alternative to
the present off the top of the head type of opinion that has produced much of our
cyclic swings in child raising techniques.
For some of the contemporary issues we already have answers within the present
knowledge base. However, a lot of the data that is available is not Canadian
derived and whether or not this data can be translated to Canadian issues remains a
matter of question.
To better answer these contemporary questions about childhood in Canada we need
to pull together the many fragments within the present knowledge base and
examine them for Canadian relevance. To initiate the focal point for the
gathering, coordinating, and disseminating of existing data will require that a focal
point for this activity be created and the source of the energy required for such an
effort be found. Such an effort will not evolve spontaneously. If knowledge is to
emerge and have relevance to a Canadian context then a Canadian based research
oriented Centre is needed. Such a Centre should not only facilitate the more
traditional forms of research relating to problems of childhood but should also
foster the development of new approaches to the study of childhood.
Studies designed to broaden our understanding and which emcompass the notion of
the child as an interactant within an ecology system will require new methodologies
and the development of new assessment technology. This new knowledge can
emerge from a variety of approaches to the design and conduct of research.
However, it is likely that the polydisciplinary approach to research will play a
major and essential role in generating these types of studies. A specific focus and
organizational structure will be needed if polydisciplinary approaches are to realize
their full potential. In order to maintain a level of productivity comparable to that
seen in research conducted along traditional disciplinary lines a facility, created
expressly to promote various forms of polydisciplinary studies of childhood, is
needed. Such a facility does not exist in Canada today. Its creation is long
overdue.  This is what the McCreary Centre will be all about. 6929.
Wednesday,  December  14,   1977.
Business arising from the Minutes
Proposal to establish a Centre for the Study of Childhood  (continued)
"Advisory Committees
1. A management committee chaired by the Dean of Graduate Studies at U.B.C.
and consisting of no more than 10 members representing:
Department of Psychology
Faculty of Medicine
Faculty of Education
School of Home Economics
Health Science Coordinating Committee
and  the  purpose  of  the  management  committee  will   be  to  advise  of  the
development policy and administration of the Centre.
2. A planning committee composed of selected individuals interested in the study
of childhood. The purpose will be to assist the Centre with the development of
program content.
In addition, there will be ad hoc committees depending upon the type of research
being carried on. Periodically, the evaluation committee will be struck to carry on
the evaluation of the proposals.
Advisory Council
Composed of 10-15 members drawn from all of British Columbia and selected on
the basis of interest in the problems of childhood. It will serve as an advisory
council and aid in the selection of the scholars who might wish to visit the Centre.
Evaluation
It is intended that the Centre run for at least ten years. There will be an interim
evaluation at the end of the first five years of operation. An evaluation committee
will be struck by the Dean of Graduate Studies, and he will prepare its terms of
reference."
Dean Larkin ) That   the  proposal   of   the  Faculty  of  Graduate
Dr. Yeo ) Studies to establish  a  Centre  for  the  Study of
Childhood be approved.
Carried
Statement on Academic Freedom
Notice of motion had been given at the previous meeting.
Dr. Finnegan  ) That    the    following    statement    on    Academic
Dr. Dennison  ) Freedom be approved by Senate for inclusion in
the University Calendar:- 6930.
Wednesday,  December   14,   1977.
Business arising from the Minutes
Statement on Academic Freedom  (continued)
The members of the University enjoy certain
rights and privileges essential to the fulfilment of
its primary functions: instruction and the pursuit
of knowledge. Central among these rights is the
freedom, within the law, to pursue what seem to
them fruitful avenues of inquiry, to teach and to
learn unhindered by external or non-academic
constraints, to engage in full and unrestricted
consideration of any opinion. This freedom
extends not only to the regular members of the
University but to all who are invited to
participate in its forum. Suppression of this
freedom, whether by institutions of the state, the
officers of the University or the actions of private
individuals, would prevent the University carrying
out its primary functions. All members of the
University must recognize this fundamental
principle and must share responsibility for
supporting, safeguarding and preserving this
central freedom. Behaviour which obstructs free
and full discussion, not only of ideas which are
safe and accepted but of those which may be
unpopular or even abhorrent, vitally threatens the
integrity of the University's forum. Such
behaviour cannot be tolerated.
Carried
From the Board of Governors

Wednesday, December   14,   1977.
Committee on Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
Dean Webber    )        That  the  new  awards  listed  in Appendix 'A' be
Dean Gardner  )        accepted subject to the approval of the Board of
Governors, and that letters of thanks be sent to
the donors.
Carried
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee (See Appendix 'B')
Dr. Runeckles presented the report. The committee recommended the approval of
new courses and course changes recommended by the Faculty of Graduate Studies,
with the exception of the proposed change in the unit value of Planning 500 which had
been withdrawn by the School of Community and Regional Planning. Attention was
drawn to the title of Education 573 and it was agreed that this should be changed to
read Advanced Seminar in Research on Exceptional Children.
The committee also recommended approval of new courses and course changes
submitted by the Faculty of Science with the exception of the cross-listing of
Mathematics 225 which was an identical course to Computer Science 220. The
committee felt that there was no justification for approving Mathematics 225. The
committee also recommended that the words "or permission of the Chairman of the
Biology program" be added to the prerequisites for Biology 444.
Dr. Runeckles ) That  the  proposal  submitted  by  the Faculty of
Dr. Wisenthal  ) Graduate Studies and the Faculty of Science be
approved.
Carried
Yukon Teacher Education Program
A report on the Yukon Teacher Education Program had been circulated for
information. Dr. Runeckles stated that since this was an existing program it did
not require the approval of the Senate Curriculum Committee.
It was stated in the report that the Government of the Yukon had approached
U.B.C. approximately one year ago with the request that a teacher training
program be established in the Yukon, leading ultimately to the degree of Bachelor
of Education in The University of British Columbia. The program was to be in the
field of elementary education for student teachers in the primary and elementary
grades. 6932.
Wednesday,  December   14,   1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Yukon Teacher Education Program  (continued)
The main reason for the request was that the Yukon Territory had been
suffering from a large turnover of teachers for many years, and wished to train
Yukon residents as prospective teachers in an on-site program. It was stated that
the Yukon Government inquired of a number of other universities, including one in
Anchorage, Alaska, but finally decided to make its approach to U.B.C. largely
because they had received reports on the various alternative programs. The
Government of the Yukon will bear the whole cost of the proposed scheme and did,
in fact, approve funding in March 1977.
It was noted that the Yukon Government did not see the project as a possible
program for Native Indians, but rather for "Native Yukoners" which meant
non—Indians and Indians alike. The government was reviewing residential
qualifications (e.g., the possibility of five years of residence in the Yukon) as a
necessary prerequisite for entry into the program. All candidates would have to
satisfy the regular admission requirements, or mature entry requirements of the
University.
Admissions Committee
At its meeting of September 14, 1977 Senate requested that the Faculties of
Agricultural Sciences, Arts, Education, Science and the Schools of Home Economics,
Nursing, Physical Education and Recreation report to Senate on further specific
subjects of Grades 1 I and 12 that should be required or recommended to prospective

Dr. Finnegan ) That Senate approve the admission requirements
Dr. Brearley  ) as   outlined   for   the   Faculties   of   Agricultural
Sciences,    Arts.    Education,    Science,    and    the
Schools  of  Home  Economics,  Nursing,   Physical
Education and Recreation.
Carried
Committee on Criteria for Affiliation of Theological Colleges
Senate concurred with the recommendation of the Agenda Committee that the
report not be discussed at this time, but that it be returned to the committee in order
that a statute of Senate might be prepared delineating the formal relationship with
current affiliated theological colleges as well as with those which might become
affiliated in the future.
Independent Study Courses
Dr. Shearer )     That  the  Senate  Admissions  Committee  review
Dr. MacDougall ) the existing regulation which restricts to 15 units
the credit which a student may obtain from
Independent Study courses, to be applied toward a
degree from this University, that in conducting
this review the Committee consult the Faculties,
and that the Committee report to Senate,
recommending whether the existing regulation
should be retained, modified, or abolished. 6934.
Wednesday,  December  14,   1977.
Independent Study Courses  (continued)
It was stated in the material circulated to Senate that members of the Interior
University Programs Board had expressed strong interest In the development of degree
programs for Interior residents by means of Independent Study Programs. Regulations at
The University of British Columbia prevented students from obtaining degrees largely or
wholly through Independent Study courses. Dr. Shearer stated that since the policy had
not been reviewed for some time he felt that the Senate Admissions Committee should
be requested to conduct such a review.
Following a brief discussion the motion was put and carried.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
A proposal concerning the B.Com. degree and student performance in failed years
was referred to the Senate Admissions Committee.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Revised admission requirements for applicants to a Master's degree program had
been circulated. Dean Larkin explained that the proposal had arisen out of a
recommendation from the Ad hoc Committee on Diplomas and Certificates. The Faculty
had been asked to consider and report to Senate on the revision of admission
requirements in order to permit the professional experience of applicants to offset
deficiencies in previous academic qualifications.
Dean Larkin  ) That item 3 under Master's Degrees (Admission),
Dean Riedel  ) 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, or
(c) Sufficient formal training and relevant
professional experience to provide the
equivalent of (a) or (b)." 6935.
Wednesday,  December  14,   1977.
Faculty of Graduate Studies  (continued)
Dr. Shearer     ) That the proposal be referred back to the Faculty
Dean Lusztig  ) of Graduate Studies in order that the wording of
item (c) can be reconsidered.
Dr. Shearer explained that he felt that item (c) should be referred back since in its
present form the wording suggested that a person with experience would have an
automatic claim to admission.
The motion to refer was put and carried.
Faculty of Medicine
Dean Webber ) That the Royal Canadian Legion Chair in Family
Dr. Copp        ) Practice   be   established   at   The   University   of
British Columbia.
Dean Webber stated that the Faculty of Medicine was most grateful to the Royal
Canadian Legion for funding a professorship in the field of Family Practice on a
continuing basis which would now allow the Faculty to recruit a professor and Head for
the Department of Family Practice.
The motion was put and carried.
