Senate Membership
Lt. Governor in Council appointee
The Chairman welcomed to Senate Dr. Hugh McDonald, Lt. Governor in
Council appointee, replacing Mr. S. R. Pearce.
Minutes of previous meeting
Dean Robertson ) That the minutes of the Third regular
Dr. Tees      ) meeting of Senate for the Session 1990-91,
having been circulated, be taken as read
and adopted.
Carried 9869.
December 12, 1990
Chairman's remarks and related questions
In commentinq on the decision on mandatory retirement handed down by the
Supreme Court, President Strangway drew attention to two points: first,
that mandatory retirement was considered to be a reasonable exception to the
Charter and, second, that universities are considered to be non-governmental
agencies.
In response to a query, President Strangway stated that the Senate
Budget Committee had discussed the tuition fee proposal and the proposal for
a unit fee. Dr. Wehrung, Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, confirmed
that the Committee had had some deliberations on the tuition fee increase
and had endorsed the unit fee proposal and the three-year strategy.
On behalf of the student senators, Mr. McGowan stated that although the
students recognized the need for a tuition fee increase they wished to
registered their disapproval of the size of the increase and of the unit fee
proposal.
At the request of the President, the Registrar commented on the unit fee
proposal. He stated that in adopting the proposal to charge all
undergraduate students on the basis of a fee that is directly related to the
units in which they register, in the first year of application the maximum
number of units that a student will have to pay for in the Winter Session
will be 19. Those students in programs which have a fairly high number of
units will not have to pay for units in excess of 19 in the first year.
That number will increase to 20 in the following year, and in the third year
there will be no limit.
In response to a query, President Strangway informed Senate that a task
force was to be struck to look into work opportunities for students on 9870.
December 12, 1990
Chairman's remarks and related questions  (continued)
campus. He stated that the objective of the three-year program was to
supplement the provincial and federal system of loans and grants in an
effort to ensure that students are not denied access to the University
because of financial reasons. He stated that information on the proposed
program would be widely circulated.
In response to a comment on the large exodus of students prior to the
completion of the graduation ceremonies, President Strangway stated that
students are requested not to leave before the end of the ceremonies and
that every effort would be made to ensure that this did not happen again.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Policy Committee
Policy on Reporting January Grades to Students
Dr. Tees, Chair of the Committee, presented the following report:
"The Committee recommends adoption of the following policy, effective
January 1992:
(a) The Registrar's Office will mail a January "Statement of Grades"
to each student registered in Winter Session Term 1 courses.
(b) The Statement of Grades will show the following:
(i)  the student's final grades for all Term 1 courses.
(ii) all full Session courses and Term 2 courses in which the
student is registered with a standing of "CIP" and no
percentage or letter grade.
(c) Students who are not registered in any Term 1 courses will not
receive a January Statement of Grades from the Registrar's
Office.
(d) Final grades for Term 1 courses should be submitted to the
Registrar's Office as soon as possible after the final
examination using the "Report of Grades" form (or SIS screen)
provided for each course.
(e) Faculties should approve grades for Term 1 courses following the
December examinations in time for them to be posted to the
student's record and reported to the student on the January
Statement of Grades. If an approved final grade is not
available for a course when the Statement of Grades is printed
"mark not received" (indicated by asterisks in place of the
grade) will be shown for that course. 9871.
December 12, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Policy Committee
Policy on Reporting January Grades to Students (continued)
(f) Interim grades will not be collected or posted to a student's
record. This includes December grades for full Session
courses. The Registrar's Office will not provide a Report of
Grades form (or SIS file) for recording or reporting these
grades.
(g) The release of December grades for full Session courses by
instructors, Departments, Schools or Faculties is a matter for
the instructor or unit concerned. It would be appropriate to
use any policies or procedures that govern the release of other
interim results, such as the results of mid-terms, term papers,
etc.
(h) English Composition Test results will continue to be recorded
following each scheduled sitting of the ECT.
(i) Faculties should approve grades for full Session and Term 2
courses and Sessional standing following the April examinations.
Other recommended changes in Senate Policy
The policy on the release of grades adopted by the Senate in February
1959, should be amended as follows:
That Senate record its policy, and authorize the Registrar to
inform all members of Faculty, that The results of final
examinations (including supplementals) are to be considered
confidential until they have been approved by Senate the
Faculty or School concerned and released by the Registrar.
In the light of the recommendations above the following
recommendation adopted in October, 1976, should be understood to have
been amended by the deletion of the words shown:
That Faculties be urged to make full use of the formal
examination periods, both in December and April, and that,
unless the relevant Dean and Head, for sound academic reason,
grant exemption, all courses designed for First and Second year
students (eg: courses in list A and B under Arts in the
Calendar) be examined in December as well as in April, the
results to be reported in the same form as are the final results.
Calendar Statement
The present Calendar statement "Examination Results" (p.23 of the
1990/91 Calendar) should be amended to read as follows: 9872.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Policy Committee
Policy on Reporting January Grades to Students - Calendar Statement
(continued)
Results of sessional examinations in April are mailed to
students in the graduating classes about by the time of
Convocation, and to students in the lower years by approximately
June 15. Any student who must meet an application date for
another institution prior to June 15 should inform the
transcript clerk in the Registrar's Office in order that
arrangements may be made to meet the deadline.
Results of final examinations in other Sessions in term 1 of
the Winter Session, Summer Session and in Guided Independent
Study courses are mailed to students as soon as possible after
they become available are approved.
(Additions are shown in bold print.)"
Dr. Tees      ) That the policy on reporting January grades
Dr. Isaacson  )  to students be approved.
Dr. Elder drew attention to the Senate policy which forbids the
holding of examinations in the two week period prior to the December and
April examinations, and asked that a stronger statement be issued on
this matter. It was suggested that the inclusion of this policy in the
Calendar would make it easier for students to draw this to the attention
of instructors who are not aware of the regulation.
The Registrar stated that a reminder of this regulation is sent to
all members of faculty each year. It was suggested that it might be
more effective if the reminder was sent out in September when
examination schedules were being planned.
It was agreed that the regulation be included in the Calendar.
The motion was put and carried. 9873.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Pharmaceutical Sciences - proposed changes in admission requirements
(continued)
Dr. Will      ) That the changes in admission requirements
Dr. Katz      )  for the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences
be approved.
Ca r r i ed
Curriculum Committee  (see Appendix 'B')
Dr. Sobrino, Chair of the Committee, presented the report.
Faculty of Applied Science
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty  of  Applied  Science,  with the exception  of  the proposed
cross-listing of APSC 152, subject to the following:
APSC 121 - approval of this course, effective September 1990, is
recommended with the proviso that the Faculty of Applied Science,
after a rigorous academic review of the course, report back to the
Senate Curriculum Committee.
Dr. Sobrino informed Senate that the Committee had expressed concern
that APSC 121 was being offered before it had been approved by Senate,
and felt that it should be made clear to the Faculties that this
procedure was unacceptable. However, the Committee agreed to recommend
approval retroactively since the course had been developed in response
to Senate's request earlier this year that the Faculty of Applied
Science take measures to ensure that future publications of the EUS
newsletter would not contain offensive material.
Referring to the proposed cross-listing of CPSC 152 as APSC 152, Dr.
Sobrino explained that approval was being withheld pending satisfactory
consultation between Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. 9875.
December 12, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Applied Science  (continued)
The Committee expressed concern at the heavy unit load in the Applied
Science program, and noted that 172 credits (86 units) were now required
for the Mining and Mineral Process Engineering Program. Another concern
expressed by the Committee was the replacement of basic material at the
advanced specialized level. Dr. Sobrino stated that this was happening
gradually, and sited as an example the dropping of MATH 357 in
Mechanical Engineering on the grounds that with modern computer programs
it is not necessary for students to learn very much about analysis.
Faculty of Arts
The Committee recommended approval of recommendations on Thematic
Options, Individual Programs, and Administration in connection with the
General B.A. Program, subject to the following rewording of the proposed
Calendar statement:
Individual Programs
Students whose principal interests are not easily served by existing
majors programs may be allowed by the Board of General Studies to
design a General B.A. program (which is not a Major or Honours
Program) involving work in several departments. Such students must
have at least a second-class average in all courses attempted to
complete the first 60 credits for the B.A. degree. Individual
Programs must be developed in close consultation with an assigned
adviser and must be approved by the Board of Studies for the General
B.A.
Dr. Sobrino explained that the statement had been reworded in order
to make it clear that students will get a General B.A. degree and not a
majors or honours degree. 9876.
December 12, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration.
Faculty of Dentistry
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Dentistry, subject to minor editorial changes. The Committee
also recommended approval of new 700 level courses.
Faculty of Forestry
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Forestry, subject to a minor editorial change.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
The Committee recommended approval of Masters Programs in Oral
Medicine, Oral Pathology, and Oral Radiology.
Faculty of Medicine
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Medicine.
School of Nursing
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
School of Nursing. Dr. Sobrino explained that Nursing 445 Extended
Practicum in Professional Nursing was being changed from required to
optional as it was impossible to place all the nurses in the appropriate
institutions to do the practicum. 9877.
December 12, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
Faculty of Science
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Science.
Dr. Sobrino   )  That the proposals of the Faculties of
Dr. Resnick   ) Applied Science, Arts, Commerce and
Business Administration, Dentistry, Forestry,
Graduate Studies, Medicine, Science, and the
School of Nursing be approved.
In response to Dr. Sobrino's comments concerning the Applied Science
proposals, Dean Meisen stated that he had informed Senate in the Spring
that a course, such as Society and the Engineer, would be developed as
quickly as possible.  Because of the urgency to get this course into the
curriculum, the Faculty had decided to implement it in September feeling
that it had Senate's approval in principle.
As far as unit loads were concerned, Dean Meisen stated that the
Applied Science programs were comparable to programs offered at other
universities in that respect.
Dr. Chase drew Senate's attention to the changes in the Geophysics
Program, and stated that it appeared that students could go through
Geophysics without a single course in Geology. He felt that a Geology
course should be taken at some time in the majors or honours programs,
particularly in the case of those students intending to seek employment
with oil companies, since it had come to his attention that given this
program change a consulting geologist would be advising oil companies to
recruit people from universities other than UBC. 9878.
December 12, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Science (continued)
Dr. Sobrino responded that this matter had not been brought to the
attention of the Curriculum Committee. However, he felt that such
problems should be addressed at the Faculty level.
Referring to the Forestry proposals, Dean Lusztig suggested that the
Faculty look at the prerequisites of those Commerce courses that are
listed as requirements for the second and third years to be sure that
they have recognized that these prerequisites exist. He stated that the
fourth year economic electives listed were prerequisites to the required
courses in second and third years and he felt that it should be noted
that these were prerequisites.
Dean Grace drew Senate's attention to the 700 level courses submitted
by the Faculty of Dentistry in connection with the three programs in
Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, and Oral Radiology, and pointed out that
these courses were not for credit towards the graduate degree.
The motion was put and carried.
Nominating Committee
Dr. Elder, Chair of the Committee, presented the following report:
1. Membership of Ad Hoc Committee to Review Student Participation in
Faculty Appointment and Tenure Committees
At its meeting of November 14, 1990, Senate agreed that an ad hoc
committee be instructed to consult faculty and students with regard
to the existing Senate guidelines barring student participation from
department decision-making on appointments, promotion, and tenure,
and report back to Senate on whether changes may be required to these
guidelines.
The Nominating Committee recommends that an ad hoc committee be
established with the following membership: 9879.

Dr. P. Resnick
Dean P. B. Robertson
2. Registrar's Voting Privileges on Senate Committees
The Agenda Committee was asked for advice on whether the Registrar
should have a vote on Senate Committees since Article 61 of the
University Act precludes the Registrar from voting in Senate.
The Agenda Committee has recommended that in keeping with the policy
of Senate of allowing appointment of non-Senate members as full
voting members of Senate Committees, it seems appropriate to invite
committees of Senate to consider whether they wish to recommend to
Senate that such an appointment be accorded the Registrar.
The Nominating Committee recommends that the Registrar be a full
voting member of the Nominating Committee
3. Membership on Senate Committees
The Nominating Committee has received the two following
recommendations from committees, to be conveyed to Senate for
approval:
(i)  Committee on Student Awards
The Committee agreed to recommend to the Nominating Committee
that a Vice President be added to the Committee
The Nominating Committee recommends that this be the Vice
President of Student and Academic Services
(ii)  University Library Committee
The Committee recommends that the Vice President Student and
Academic Services and the Director of the School of Library,
Archival and Information Studies be co-opted to its membership.
4. Representative on the Regent College Senate
The Nominating Committee recommends that Dr. L. Paszner replace Rev.
P. C. Burns on the Regent College Senate. 9880.

Dr. Cook, Chair of the Committee, presented the report. Dr. Cook drew
Senate's attention to the Kerimar Foundation Scholarships and noted that
the words "to Italian Studies students" should be inserted after the words
"The awards are made...".
Dr. Cook      ) That the new awards (listed in Appendix 'A')
Dean Hollenberg) be accepted subject to the approval of the
Board of Governors and that letters of
thanks be sent to the donors.
In response to a query concerninq the C Wilfred Pearson Scholarship,
Dr. Cook explained that this would be awarded strictly on the basis of
merit. When all the major scholarships have been awarded, the next
eligible student would qualify for this scholarship.
The motion was put and carried. 9881.
December 12, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Student Awards (continued)
Dr. Cook reminded Senate that at the November meetinq, after a lenqthy
discussion, Senate had reaffirmed its guidelines and requested the
Committee to inform the donors of the Van-Tel Credit Union Sadie Mcllwaine
Memorial Bursary that the University was unable to accept this bursary.
The Committee had reconsidered a revised version of the award and was
unanimous in its decision to bring the award back to Senate. However, the
Committee was not unanimous in recommending acceptance of the award since
the award contains non-academic restrictions which fall outside the
"affirmative action" context of Senate's policy and guidelines. Dr. Cook
stated that the Director of Awards and Financial Aid, Mr. Hender, had been
unable to persuade the donors to change the terms of the award, and
pointed out that guideline (b) stated that where non-academic
considerations are considered by the donor to be of overriding importance,
the Senate shall satisfy itself that the terms of the proposed award are
consistent with the general statement of policy. She pointed out that
this award did not meet the overall non-academic restrictions of Senate's
policy. Given these points, the Committee was divided in its opinion as
to whether the Senate, and ultimately the University, should continue to
accept awards of this kind, and although the Committee was recommending
approval of this bursary it felt that it needed Senate's advice on the
application of its policy and guidelines for the future.
Dr. Cook      ) That the Van-Tel Credit Union Sadie Mcllwaine
Dean Lusztig  )  Memorial Bursary be accepted subject to the
approval of the Board of Governors and that a
letters of thanks be sent to the donor.
In response to a query, Dr. Cook confirmed that the provision that the
award would be tenable at any post-secondary institution had been removed.
The motion was put and carried. 9882.
December 12, 1990
Report of the University Librarian 1989-90
In speaking briefly to the report, Dr. Patrick, the University
Librarian, drew attention to the increased activity in serving other
libraries, and noted that interlibrary lending had increased 9.5%. In
addition, instructional sessions increased by 30%. Dr. Patrick noted that
the Library has access to four online databases, that it has eleven
terminals with access to the online catalogue, and that it could use many
more. She noted that improved photocopy services had lead to an increase in
the use of existing material. Dr. Patrick paid tribute to the work done by
the Library staff.
Academic Year 1991-92
Dean Burns    ) That the proposed dates for the
Dr. Wehrung   )  Academic Year 1991-92 be included
in the Calendar.
There was considerable discussion concerning the lecture time lost on
Mondays because of statutory holidays.  It was agreed that a task force,
organized by the Registrar, should consider possible ways of making up the
instructional activities that are lost as a result of the three Monday
holidays in the first term (Labour Day, Thanksgiving, and Remembrance Day).
In amendment:
Dr. Elder     )  That the orientation activities be

The motion, as amended, was put and carried.
Proposals of the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
Proposal to change the name of the Department of Theatre to the
Department of Theatre and Film

divisions are incorporated into a single department.  Students and the
general public find the current designation of Film courses as Theatre
courses confusing.  This distinction was strongly urged by the Review
Committee Report which recommended a change in title and a separation of
curricula.

program for a student to be granted Pass Standing. However, only
six credits of Pass Standing can be credited toward a Master's
program; for all other courses credited to the program, at least
68% must be obtained.
It was noted that under the new policy the following categories will
be used:

Membership in the Faculty of Graduate Studies
The following recommendations concerning membership in the Faculty of
Graduate Studies had been circulated:
1. Elected faculty representation on the Graduate Council should be
expanded from 50 at present to 75 members. These should be
distributed using the existing formula which allocates
representatives among the faculties in proportion to the number of
faculty members who are also members of the Faculty of Graduate
Studies and the size of the graduate student body. Individual
faculties should be left to determine the appropriate distribution of
representatives among their own departments' programs. Faculty
members with joint appointments would be able to represent two
departments or programs on Council.
2. Elected student representation on the Graduate Council should be
increased in proportion to the increase in faculty membership, i.e.
from 6 to 9. Student membership should continue to be allocated
among faculties according to the size of the graduate student body.
3. The effectiveness of the Graduate Council should be reviewed again in
three years with particular attention to the issue of
representativeness.

December 12, 1990
Proposals of the Faculties (continued)
Faculty of Medicine
Proposal to extend the second academic year by one week
It was stated in the material circulated that the lengthening of
second year by one week is meant to facilitate a decompression of the
exam schedule in second year. In the current schedule, examinations are
held in April in some courses while other courses are still on-going.
The revised schedule will provide much needed study time for these exams
and for those that occur at the end of the year and will alleviate the
problem of students skipping on-going classes in order to study for
exams in other courses. The alternative option of cutting back on
instruction by one week and keeping the length of the year the same as
it is is not a viable option given the scope of material taught in the
second year.
Dean Hollenberg   )  That the second academic year be extended
Dr. Slonecker    ) by one week for study/exam time commencing
in the 1991/92 year.

Report of the Tributes Committee  (in camera)
Honorary Degrees
In accordance with procedures established at the March 18, 1987 meeting

should include two or three additional programs, with similar topical
foci, and a limited number of broader thematic options.
Recommendation 2. Requirements for Thematic Options
That thematic options in the general B.A. program require successful
completion of 36 credits of 300- and 400-level courses approved for the
option, of which 18 credits and no more than 24 credits must be from one
discipline.
Recommendation 3. Cross Referencing
That International Relations, Asian Area Studies, and Medieval Studies be
cross referenced in the section of the Calendar that describes the general
B.A. Program.
Recommendation 4.  Admission Requirements
That the application procedure and general requirements for admission to
thematic options be the same as those for the general option in the
general B.A. program. In addition applicants would be required to satisfy
any specific prerequisites for courses that are part of the thematic
option selected and any other specific requirements for admission to that
option recommended by the Board of Studies and approved by the Faculty and
Senate. 9897.

"Wood Science and Industry Major B.Sc. (Forestry)
The program consists of a minimum of 126 credits of in-session and 5
credits of extra-sessional course work (Total 131 credits).
No later than the end of the spring term of the second year, each
student will be required to select one of three Areas of Concentration.
Each of these sequences of courses is designed to broaden the student's
knowledge in one of three specific areas: Forestry, Business Management
or Science and Engineering. The Forestry sequence should permit a
graduate to qualify for registration in the Association of British
Columbia Professional Foresters upon completion of additional
requirements. The Business Management sequence which has been drawn up
in cooperation with the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration,
is designed for the student interested in the business and financial
aspects of the forest products industry. The Science and Engineering
sequence allows students interested in mill operation, research and
product development to expand their background appropriately, and it is
recommended for those students contemplating a post-graduate degree in
Wood Science."

be CPSC 216 and 218, respectively. In the Faculty of Arts List B, CPSC
210 and 213 should be replaced by CPSC 216 and 218. Effective September
1992: Alter prerequisites for 300- and 400-level CPSC courses to map
CPSC 216 onto CPSC 210 and CPSC 218 onto CPSC 213.
Change in Calendar Statement:
Note: Students wanting a comprehensive introduction to Computer Science
as a discipline should take CPSC 124 and 126. CPSC 124 alone is not
recommended. Students who already have credit for CPSC 116 or 118 may
take CPSC 128 in place of CPSC 124 and 126. CPSC 100, 111 and 118 are
intended for students who do not plan to pursue degree programs in the
Department of Computer Science. CPSC 114, 116 and 151 are no longer
offered. Credit for CPSC 116 is equivalent to credit for CPSC 118.
Students may NOT obtain credit for more than one of CPSC 100, 111, 114,
124, 151 and 152.  Consult the Department for further information.

Physics  (continued)
Change in Calendar statement:
Courses primarily for first-year Science students - replace second and
third paragraphs with:
PHYS 110, PHYS 115 or PHYS 120 is the normal prerequisite for admission
to science programs and to the Faculty of Applied Science, and, along
with MATH 100 and 101 (or 120 and 121) is prerequisite to all Physics
courses except PHYS 340 and 341. Credit will be given...another
institution.
Students planning to go into Applied Science or the physical sciences
are encouraged to take PHYS 115 or, preferably PHYS 120. Admission to
the Second Year Honours Physics program generally requires PHYS 120 and
a clear First Year pass with either overall Second Class standing in 30
credits or at least Second Class standing in each of PHYS 120, MATH 100
and 101, and a First Year Chemistry course.  However,...were also met.
