Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Dr. Smith presented the report on items referred to the committee at previous
meetings.
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences
At the October 10, 1979 meeting, Senate referred to the Admissions
Committee a proposal to restrict enrolment in the Bachelor of Landscape
Architecture program with a request that the criteria to be used in the selection
of candidates for the program be submitted to the committee and subsequently to
Senate.
The committee recommended approval of the proposal.
Dr. Smith        ) That the proposal of the Faculty of Agricultural
Dean Kitts      ) Sciences that admission to the First Year of the
Bachelor of Landscape Architecture program be
restricted to 20 students in the 1980-81
Academic Year.
Carried
Faculty of Law
At  its meeting of November   14,   1979, Senate referred to the Admissions
Committee the following proposal to change the admission standards for the LL.B.
program:
In order to be eligible for consideration for admission to the Faculty, applicants
must present evidence of having, at the time of application:
(a) graduated in an approved course of studies from The University of British
Columbia and obtained an overall standing of not less than 65%, or obtained
the equivalent at an approved University; or
(b) successfully completed the first three years or more of an approved course of
studies leading to a degree at The University of British Columbia and
obtained an overall standing of not less than 65%, or its equivalent at an
approved University; or 7296.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Faculty of Law  (continued)
(c) successfully completed the first two years of an approved course of studies
leading to a degree at The University of British Columbia and obtained an
overall standing of not less than 65%, or obtained the equivalent at an
approved College or University, and having enrolled in the third year of a
degree program. An offer of admission to an applicant in this category is
conditional on successful completion of such third year and maintaining an
overall standing of not less than 65%.
Dr. Smith        ) That  the  proposal   of  the  Faculty  of Law  to
Dean Lysyk     ) change the admission standards for the LL.B.
program be approved.
Carried
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
At its meeting of December 12, 1979, Senate referred to the Admissions
Committee a proposal to add the following calendar statement on advancement
regulations for the Licentiate in Accounting program:
1. That a student who passes all courses in which he is registered in any year but
who achieves an average below 55% will be considered to have failed the
year.
2. That a student who does not pass all courses in which he is registered and
achieves an average below 60% in the courses passed will be considered to
have failed the year.
3. That a student who fails in one-third or more of the units in which he is
registered will be considered to have failed the year and will not receive
credit for courses passed in that year.
Dr. Smith ) That the proposal of the Faculty of Commerce
Dean Lusztig   ) and Business Administration to add a calendar
statement on advancement regulations for the
Licentiate in Accounting program be approved.
Carried
Curriculum Committee (see Appendix 'B')
Dr. Wisenthal presented the report. 7297.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee (continued)
Faculties of Agricultural Sciences and Applied Science
Dr. Wisenthal        )        That new courses, course and program changes
Dean Kitts )        recommended by the Faculties of Agricultural
Sciences and Applied Science be approved.
Carried
Faculty of Arts
Dr. Wisenthal        )        That a new course, course and program changes
Dean Will )        in Philosophy, program changes in Mathematics
and a change in the English Composition
requirement, recommended by the Faculty of
Arts, be approved.
Dr. Wisenthal explained that the present policy with respect to English
Composition testing was that U.B.C. English 100 students took the English
Composition examination which was part of English 100 but that students
transferring from community colleges were given a different test. Under the
proposed policy both English 100 students and transfer students would be required
to take the same composition examination.
Dr. Wisenthal also explained that the proposed change had implications for
most other Faculties and suggested that, unless Senate had objections, other
Faculties who had statements in the Calendar parallel to the existing statement of
the Faculty of Arts be allowed to change their statements accordingly without
going through Senate. However, should any of those Faculties wish to make
additions to the statement, such as adding a time limit, such statements should be
approved by both the Faculty concerned and Senate.
Dr. Wisenthal then reported the Curriculum Committee's view that it would
be desirable for the new arrangement to be adopted across the University and for
there to be a committee to oversee the examination; this committee, to which the
English Department would report, would have representation from participating
Faculties.
The motion was put and carried.
Faculties of Commerce and Business Administration, Dentistry, and Education
Dr. Wisenthal       ) That    the    proposals    of    the    Faculties    of
Dean Lusztig       ) Commerce     and     Business      Administration,
Dentistry, and Education be approved.

Ad hoc Committee on Post-baccalaureate Professional Programs
Dean Larkin presented the following report which had been circulated:-
"The committee was established by Senate to recommend criteria for the
selection of credentials for future post-baccalaureate professional
programs.
Post-baccalaureate professional programs at The University of British
Columbia include:
17 diploma programs
2   certification programs
1 licentiate program
2 Bachelors' programs
16 Masters' programs
2   Doctoral programs
Diploma and Certificate Credentials
Criteria for selection of diploma and certificate credentials were
approved by Senate in April 1977, and are recommended for use in the
future. 7299.
Wednesday,  January   16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Post-baccalaureate Professional Programs  (continued)
"Diploma and Certificate Credentials (continued)
1. Certificate
(a) A Certificate program should, in the main, consist of regular
university courses at the First and Second Year level or
specially prepared courses at this level;
(b) the study program should be the equivalent of between one-half
and one full year of university study (9-15 units);
(c) admission requirements should be secondary school graduation
or maturity.
2. Diploma
(a) A diploma program should, in general, consist of regular
university courses at the Third and Fourth Year level;
(b) the study program should be the equivalent of one full year or
more of university study (minimum 12-18 units);
(c) a first university degree or the equivalent should be prerequisite
but mature applicants particularly suited because of experience
should also be admitted.
Licentiate Credentials
There is only one licentiate degree offered at present at The University
of British Columbia. The licentiate in accounting is a degree program
requiring 37 units except for B.Com. graduates who require I8feunits.
The program is more than a diploma but is not a baccalaureate. All of
the courses are undergraduate.
The committee discourages the use of this credential in the future. If
new licentiates are to be offered, the following criteria should apply:
(a) The admission requirement should be a standing of at least 60% in
the final two years of a baccalaureate degree.
(b) The study program should be the equivalent of either one full year
(15 units) or more of university study for students with a first
degree closely related to the field or, two full years (30 units) or
more of university study for students with a first degree in an
unrelated field. (For the latter students exemption may be given to
courses during the first year on the basis of examination or
standing in the courses in a prior university program.)
(c) The study program should consist, in general, of regular university
courses.
(d) The final year of study should consist of courses at or above the
Third Year level, including 7fe units at the Fourth Year level or
above. 7300.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Post-baccalaureate Professional Programs (continued)
"Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral Credentials
Present Practice
The M.D., D.M.D. and LL.B. degrees are excluded from the discussion;
they do not require a Baccalaureate for admission.
The Ed.D. and D.M.A. programs are "third level" degrees that ordinarily
require a Master's degree or its equivalent for admission.
The B.Arch. is singular. The program covers a wide range of material
(55 units) in a 3-year program after a Bachelor's degree or equivalent.
To turn to the Master's degrees, the professionally oriented programs
range from 15 units without a thesis to 30 units with a thesis.
Admission requirements for all Master's programs are fairly uniform,
with more weighting for professional experience in professional
programs. For programs in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, admission
requires a Bachelor's degree with honours and first class standing in
6 units at the 300/400 level; or first class in 6 units and second class in
other prerequisite course work; or professional experience that may
offset some deficiences in background or standing. For the Masters'
degree administered by the Faculty of Arts (M.L.S. and M.A.S.) the
admission requirements are nominally less stringent (good second class
standing) but in practice roughly equivalent to those of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies.
Most Master's degrees are "second" degrees in a subject area and as
such are called graduate and administered through the Faculty of
Graduate Studies. Guidelines for Master's credentials were developed in
1972 by a Committee on Principles and Criteria for the Nomenclature
of Master's degrees, which recommended to the Dean of Graduate
Studies that four categories of degrees be recognized:
1. The M.A. degree for programs with major emphasis in the arts and
the humanities
2. The M.F.A. degree in the creative and performing arts
3. The M.Sc. degree in programs which emphasize largely scientific
and technical content
4. Appropriately    designated    degrees    for    programs   with   strong
professional orientation (such as M.Eng., M.F., and so on)
Discussion concerning nomenclature and jurisdiction in recent years has
been focussed on programs that require a bachelor's degree for
admission, but are not second degrees in a subject area. Examples are
the M.L.S., the recently approved M.A.S., and the M.S.W. before a
B.S.W. was instituted. 7301.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Post-baccalaureate Professional Programs
"Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral Credentials
Present Practice  (continued)
For these programs the principal arguments for the Master's credential
are:
(a) they follow a Bachelor's degree,
(b) require a similar amount of course work at a similar level to other
Master's programs, and
(c) the practice at other universities is to give a Master's; U.B.C.
graduates should not be disadvantaged.
Because they are not "second degrees" these programs have not been
administered through the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Proposed criteria
The current practice at U.B.C. can be regularized for the future as
follows:
I. Post-Baccalaureate in a discipline or field in which a baccalaureate
is not offered
These programs require that a student hold a Bachelor's degree or
equivalent for admission. The program of study however does not
follow directly from an undergraduate degree program and is a
separate discipline or field.
1. The degree designation can be either a Bachelor's or Master's
degree, and styled as a Bachelor/Master of  (the appropriate
subject of study).
2. For the Master's designation, admission is limited to students of
second class or better standing.
3. For a Master's designation, the program should be a minimum of
30 units of which at least 12 units are in the specific subject
area, non-electives and numbered 500 or above.
For a Bachelor's designation, the program should be a minimum
of 45 units of undergraduate level courses.
4. For a Master's designation, an average of second class standing
must be maintained to complete the program.
II. Post-Baccalaureate in a discipline or field in which a baccalaureate
is offered
These programs require that a student hold a Bachelor's degree or
its equivalent for admission. The program of study builds upon the
undergraduate major field or subject area; the undergraduate work is
prerequisite to postgraduate study. 7302.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Post-Baccalaureate Professional Programs
"Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral Credentials
Proposed Criteria
II. Post-Baccalaureate in a discipline or field in which a baccalaureate
is offered (continued)
1. The degree designation is a Master's, usually a Master of the
subject area for which there is a direct Bachelor's degree
counterpart.
2. The admissions/program requirements/required standing or
performance level must all fall within the requirements of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies for professional graduate programs.
III. Post-Baccalaureate - Doctoral level
These programs most often require the completion of a second
level program (a Master's degree), but admission may be granted to
those who hold a Bachelor's degree with superior standing.
1. The degree designation is at the Doctoral level.
2. The admissions/program requirements/required standing or
performance level must fall within the requirements of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Academic Administration
1. Programs of the first kind may be administered by the
Dean/Faculty where they originate or to which they most closely
relate, or by the Dean/Faculty of Graduate Studies. Programs
which clearly cross the academic jurisdiction of established
Faculties should be administered by the Dean/Faculty of Graduate
Studies and will require admission/program/performance standards
of that Faculty.
2. Programs of the second and third kind should be administered by
the Dean/Faculty of Graduate Studies.
It is recommended that the proposed criteria for future diploma and
certificate credentials be approved.
It   is  recommended  that   the  proposed criteria  for  future  licentiate
credentials be approved.
It  is  recommended that the proposed criteria for future Bachelors',
Masters' and Doctoral credentials be approved."
Dean Larkin     ) That   the   recommendations   of   the   ad   hoc
Dean Will ) Committee on Post-baccalaureate Professional
Programs be approved.
Following a brief discussion the motion was put and carried. 7303.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Statistics
At its meeting of January 17, 1980 Senate agreed that an ad hoc committee
be established to study and report on the offerings in statistics in the various
Departments and Faculties in the University.
Dr.    Runeckles    presented    the    report    which    contained    the    following
recommendations:
Recommendation I
Ongoing review of the situation regarding statistics courses on campus should be
vested in the Senate Curriculum Committee through the creation of a Standing
Sub-Committee on Statistics.
This recommendation recognizes that matters and concerns regarding statistics
courses are largely curricular in nature, and certainly fall within the purview of an
are best handled by the Senate Curriculum Committee. The following
recommendations suggest procedures and policies for the guidance of the Standing
Sub-Committee.
Recommendation 2
The separate listing of courses on probability and statistics should be maintained in
the University Calendar, with the Chairman of the Standing Sub-Committee on
Statistics assuming responsibility for update.
Since the function of maintaining such a listing relates to curriculum and course
selection, it appears to be more appropriate for responsibility to be vested in the
Standing Sub-Committee on Statistics rather than with the Institute of Applied
Mathematics and Statistics.
Recommendation 3
No introductory or basic statistics courses should normally be offered above the
300-level. Those Faculties, Departments or Schools with introductory courses at the
400-level or higher should be required by the Standing Sub-Committee to provide a
full rationale if they believe that renumbering to the 300-level or below is
inappropriate.
The Committee accepts the legitimacy of the view that in many programs of study,
material which may be introductory or basic may best be introduced at the third year
level, partly because of the desirability of permitting other, more appropriate, basic
subject matter courses to be covered in the first two years, to provide a logical
academic base of prerequisites, and partly because this previously established base
provides a relevant framework into which to place introductory statistics. The
Committee, however, feels that introductory statistics courses do not belong at the
400-level and particularly not at the 500-level. In addition, the Committee believes
that, for the Standing Sub-Committee to be effective in its ongoing review of the
situation, it should be empowered to require the provision of the necessary
information from Faculties, Departments and Schools.
Recommendation 4
Faculties, Departments or Schools offering introductory statistics courses (whether
for Ife or 3 units) with enrolments which have been less than 20 for several years
should be asked by the Standing Sub-Committee on Statistics actively to seek ways of
reorganizing their curricula to make use of other existing statistics courses, and
should be required to provide full justification if they propose retention of the status
quo. 7304.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on Statistics (continued)
The Committee again believes that the Standing Sub-Committee should be
empowered to require a full justification for the retention of existing, low enrolment
introductory statistics courses in order for its review to be effective. In seeking such
justification, the Sub-Committee may wish to expand its enquiries to determine
whether the present variability in units and contact hours is justifiable, by including
courses with larger enrolments in its review.
Recommendation 5
All new statistics course proposals should require justification on the grounds that the
different or specialized statistical techniques which must be emphasized are not
currently available in an existing course format, and not solely on the basis of a
desire to provide examples and applications relevant to a particular discipline.
The Committee recognizes that information transfer is an important part of the
education process, but in viewing the wide range of courses presently offered,
believes that the major disciplinary groupings, e.g. mathematics, social sciences, life
sciences, engineering, etc., are already well served at the introductory level. At the
advanced level, the close scrutiny of all new course proposals should provide an
adequate mechanism for ensuring that the spirit of this recommendation is adhered
to. The Committee also believes that new courses should not be proposed on the basis
of the recent arrival of a new "statistician" in a Faculty,Department or School. The
introduction of such courses should be part of curriculum development subjected to
rigorous scrutiny and not the post facto result of personnel changes.
Recommendation 6
All introductory statistics courses (existing or proposed) which are offered in
disciplinary contexts should have stated prerequisites within the discipline.
The Committee believes that if a Faculty, Department or School can justify the
offering of an introductory statistics course at a senior level, it should be made clear
that the case for such an offering is based on the necessity for the prior completion
of subject matter within the discipline, to a stated minimum level; furthermore, that
such prerequisite standing be adhered to, in admitting students to such courses. Of
particular concern to the Committee are courses which are only offered as electives,
where the temptation may be very real to admit students with various degrees of
preparation, in order to bolster enrolment.
Recommendation 7
All Faculties should prepare "pairing" lists of statistics courses, indicating those
courses which they consider to be equivalent and hence should not be available for
multiple credit.
The Committee believes that "pairing" lists, such as that used by the Faculty of
Science and included in the University Calendar, serve a useful function to students
and advisers. The extensive listings of currently available statistics courses should
assist Faculties in this task.
Dr. Runeckles       )       That   the   recommendations   of   the   ad   hoc
Dr. Scudder )       Committee on Statistics be approved.
Following a brief discussion the motion was put and carried. 7305.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
Proposal to establish The Herbert R. Fullerton Chair in Urban Land Policy
Dean Lusztig       ) That the proposal of the Faculty of Commerce
Dr. Heaver )        and Business Administration  to  establish  The
Herbert   R.   Fullerton   Chair   in   Urban   Land
Policy be approved.
It was explained in the proposal that the Chair had been made possible by grants
raised by and through the membership of The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, The
Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver and The Kootenay Real Estate Board and
was aimed at supporting the scholarly activities of the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration.
The motion was put and carried.
English Composition Requirement
The following proposal to change the Calendar statement concerning the English
Composition requirement had been circulated:
"To qualify for the degree of Bachelor of Commerce students must
satisfy the English Composition requirement of the Faculty of Arts. A
student who has not satisfied the English Composition Test at the time
of admission to the B.Com. program must do so within one academic
year of admission to the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration."
Dean Lusztig explained that it had been brought to his attention that reference to
the "...requirement of the Faculty of Arts" was not suitable since this would be a
requirement of the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration. The Dean
suggested that the proposal be approved in principle and that the exact wording of the
statement for the Calendar be arranged by Dean Lusztig, Dean Will and the
Registrar.
Dean Lusztig      ) That the proposal of the Faculty of Commerce
Dean Will ) and   Business   Administration   concerning   the
English Composition Requirement be approved
in principle.
Carried 7306.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
The President's Report 1978-79
The President's Report 1978-79 had been circulated for information.
Reference was made to a statement, issued by the President entitled "The Mission
of The University of British Columbia" previously circulated to members of Senate. It
was suggested that there be discussion of the report in Senate. The Chairman stated
that he would inform the Agenda Committee of the suggestion.
Accessibility of marked examination papers
Mr. Watts ) Upon receipt of an application in writing from a
Dr. Elder ) student, the Department Head concerned will ensure
that the student be allowed to view his/her marked
final examination paper with the course instructor.
This policy to be stated clearly in the appropriate
section on appeals procedure in the University
Calendar.
It was stated in the material circulated that the motion was being presented in
order to establish a University policy on the accessibility of marked examination papers.
Presently the decision to allow a student to view a paper was ultimately at the
discretion of the course instructor.
It was argued in the proposal that the writing of an examination, if truly to be an
educational process, must be followed by the student learning what he/she did or did not
understand of the course material. In many courses the final examination was the only
evaluation of the student's work.
During the following discussion concern was expressed with regard to the
procedural problems that would be encountered in order to implement such a proposal.
The possibility of large numbers of students asking to see their papers for examinations
which were final at Christmas could also impose an impossible load on instructors.
It was observed that the objections raised had been of a technical and hypothetical
nature. It was felt that the principle of the proposal was an important one and that
instructors should be willing to defend what they had said in response to a student's
examination.
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried. 7307.
Wednesday,  January  16,   1980.
