Senate membership
New student senator
The Chairman welcomed to Senate Mr. B. A. Elliott, student representative of the
Faculty of Education replacing Mr. Frank Lee.
Business arising from the Minutes
Report of Committee on Student Awards  (P.7425-7)
Mr. McWilliams presented the following report:
"As a result of the discussions which occurred at the Senate meeting held
November 12, 1980, the Senate Committee on Awards has reviewed its original
report and presents its revised recommendations.
I. Since the report of the Ad hoc Committee on Awards and Scholarships
(November I, 1979) was never formally adopted, the standing Committee has
advised the Director of Awards and Financial Aid on the following:
(a) Definition of "full-time" for undergraduate scholarship purposes
There has been discussion regarding the present limitation of scholarships
to full-time students, but while the Committee is considering options for
part-time students, the present policy with respect to undergraduate
scholarships shall be as follows:
"Scholarships may only be awarded to full-time students as defined by
their faculty of registration and set out in the Calendar. In order to
retain a scholarship a student will be required to carry at least 80% of a
full program."
(b) Deferred Awards
The Ad hoc Committee recommended that a student be permitted to
defer a scholarship only "if compelled for medical or compassionate
reasons to interrupt his or her studies." The standing Committee
believes that this policy is too rigid and recommends the following:
"A scholarship may be deferred for one year. Application for deferment
must be made to the Awards Office and must include reasons for the
postponement of studies at U.B.C. Students wishing to take up a
deferred award must advise the Awards Office in writing by July I."
(c) Entrance Scholarships
The Ac hoc Committee recommended that all students entering U.B.C.
from Grade XII in a B. C. High School and wishing to be considered for
scholarships be required to write the B. C. Government Scholarship
examinations. The Awards Office felt that there were a number of
scholarships which were restricted to a small group of students and that
in some cases, the scholarship should be based on high school marks,
rather than government scholarship examinations. The standing
Committee has recommended the following Calendar statement: 7443.
Wednesday,  December   10,   1980.
Business arising from the Minutes
Report of Committee on Student Awards
(c)    Entrance Scholarships  (continued)
" "Students entering U.B.C. from Grade XII in a B. C. High School, and
wishing to be considered for scholarships administered by the University
will normally be expected to write the B. C. Government Scholarship
Examinations. The marks obtained in these examinations will be used to
determine the recipients of entrance scholarships. When the number of
possible candidates is narrowly restricted by the terms of the award, the
Government Scholarship Examinations will not be required." (effective
1981/82)
2.     Terms of Awards
Perhaps the most difficult task faced by the standing Committee and the Ad
hoc Committee on Awards and Scholarships was the matter of determining
the terms or conditions under which an award would be accepted by the
University. There have been repeated discussions at many Senate meetings
regarding awards that gave preference to or appeared to discriminate for or
against one group of students or another. After considerable discussion, the
Committee has drafted the following statement for the approval of Senate:
"The University prefers to administer awards that are made available without
restrictions deemed to be discriminatory. It will administer awards that
define, in terms acceptable to Senate, the eligibility of students to receive
the award. Senate may decline awards containing criteria that it deems to be
contrary to the interests of the University as an academic institution."
It was agreed by the standing Committee that awards which contain any of
the above terms or conditions, and which are to be adjudicated by the
University should be reviewed by the standing Committee prior to being
forwarded to Senate. The Committee recommends that the above statement
be included in all relevant publications of the University."
Mr. McWilliams explained that the word "undergraduate" had been added to item
I (a) "Definition of full-time for scholarship purposes" in order to satisfy one of the
queries raised at the previous meeting and that, as requested by Senate, the proposed
Calendar statement outlined under the heading "Terms of Awards" had been rewritten in a more positive form.
Mr. McWilliams ) That the report be received.
Dean Will )
Carried 7444.
Wednesday,  December  10,   1980.
Business arising from the Minutes
Report of Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
Mr. McWilliams ) That the following statement be approved and
Dean Will ) included   in   all   relevant   publications   of   the
University:
"The University prefers to administer awards
that are made available without restrictions
deemed to be discriminatory. It will administer
awards that define, in terms acceptable to
Senate, the eligibility of students to receive the
award. Senate may decline awards containing
criteria that it deems to be contrary to the
interests of the University as an academic
institution."
Carried
Report of ac hoc Committee on Examinations  (P.7430)
Discussion of recommendation 4 of the report had been postponed at the previous
meeting. Dr. Jones requested that the words "... this to be accomplished initially for
the 1981-82 academic year." be deleted from the recommendation since it might not
be feasible to implement the recommendation in time for the 1981-82 Winter Session.
Dr. Jones ) That final examination schedules for December
Dr. Dennison  ) and April be made available to students prior to
the   period   of   course    registration    for    the
academic year.
Dr. Jones stated that the motion creating the committee specifically directed the
committee to consider the feasibility of adopting a class scheduling system that
would automatically assign examination slots so that at the time of registration the
possibility of examination conflicts would be ruled out. The recommendation was in
response to this directive.
The committee felt that there were two kinds of issues involved; one was the
issue of mechanics and feasibility and the other the issue of academic principle. The
committee concluded that if the examination schedule were first linked to the course
timetable then the issue of feasibility would be eliminated. The main issue then was
the principle. The committee felt that it was a good idea, mainly because producing
the examination schedule in advance of registration would eliminate those cases
where students found they were scheduled to take two examinations at the same
time. 7445.
Wednesday,  December  10,   1980.
Business arising from the Minutes
Report of ad hoc Committee on Examinations  (continued)
In reply to a query it was confirmed that the motion did not apply to Law,
Medicine, Dentistry and Rehabilitation Medicine since they already had their own
internal administrative arrangements.
In reply to a further query it was stated that the adoption of the recommendation
would not reduce the incidence of back to back examinations. However, students
would have some control at the time of registration.
During the discussion that followed opinions were expressed that the selection of
courses would be constrained if this recommendation were adopted. It was felt that
students would select courses on the basis of arranging a compatible examination
schedule.
Some members felt that since the recommendation would particularly affect the
Faculties of Arts and Science, where the freedom of choice and the wide selection of
courses was the essence of their programs, that it should not be passed without the
support of these two Faculties.
The motion was put and lost.
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations - subject, where
applicable, to the proviso that none of the programs be implemented without formal
reference to the President and the formal agreement of the President; and that the
Deans and Heads concerned with new programs be asked to indicate the space
requirements, if any, of such new programs.
(i)      New courses and program change recommended by the Faculty of Agricultural
Sciences (P.7439)
(ii)     New courses and course changes recommended by the Faculty of Graduate Studies
(P.7439-7440)
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
Mr. McWilliams ) 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.
Attention was drawn to the Emily Bilinsky Bursaries and the statement that the
awards would be made to students of Ukrainian descent belonging to the Catholic
church. As the money had been given under the terms of a will the committee were
recommending acceptance of the bursaries. 7446.
Wednesday,   December   10,   1980.
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries  (continued)
In amendment:
Dr. Silver  ) That the Emily Bilinsky Bursaries be discussed
Dean Will   ) as a separate item.
Carried
The motion, as amended, was put and carried.
Mr. McWilliams ) That the Emily Bilinsky Bursaries be accepted.
Miss Warren       )
Following a brief discussion the motion was put and carried.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Building Needs
Dr. Runeckles presented the report. It was explained in the report that the
committee had reviewed the situation concerning the space requirements of the
University Library. As the basis of this review, the committee used the Report of the
President's Advisory Committee on Library Space Requirements (II) (referred to
subsequently as the Larkin Committee Report), together with extensive material
developed by the Department of Facilities Planning.
Two matters reviewed by the committee were (i) the urgent need for additional
library space in relation to the needs of academic and other units on campus; and (ii)
the choice between the alternative options proposed in the Larkin Committee Report.
As a result of this review, the committee adopted the following resolutions:
Resolution I
The Senate Academic Building Needs Committee recommends that the
acquisition of additional library space be based on the concept of an
expanded central library (*Plan A2 of the Larkin Committee Report).
Resolution 2
The Senate Academic Building Needs Committee recommends that Senate
urge the University to proceed forthwith with the submission of a proposal
to the Universities Council of British Columbia for capital funds for the
expansion of the University Library, as a special request, independent of the
University's present 5-year Capital Building Plan.
*Plan A2   -     Linkage   of   Main   and   Sedgewick   Libraries;     reconstruction  of   Main
Library and renovation of historical portion. 7447.
Wednesday,  December   10,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Academic Building Needs  (continued)
It was stated in the report that the committee had reviewed the information
summarized in the Larkin Committee Report, and heard arguments as to the merits
of the various proposals (listed as options Al, A2, A3, Bl, B2 in that Report). The
committee recognized the complexities of planning for the library of the future at a
time of considerable and rapid technological change and development, and that no
single option was devoid of drawbacks, However, when the arguments in favour of
the specific proposals for options A2 and Bl (those preferred by the Larkin
Committee) had been heard and discussed, the committee voted in favour of option
A2. Perhaps the most telling academic argument in favour of A2 was the recognition
that, in the context of the campus, the University Library should constitute the hub
of the University, and should to the greatest possible extent facilitate the interaction
of a wide diversity of disciplines, rather than encouraging the fragmentation and
dissociation which would be inevitable if further development of separate libraries
were to take place.
With regard to priorities, the committee fully endorsed the need for immediate
action to develop additional library space. However, since its report to Senate in
1974 and 1977 had focussed specifically on the building needs of academic units of the
University, and the priorities approved by Senate, most recently in 1977, had formed
the basis of the current 5-year Capital Building Plan, the committee was unanimous
in its view that the need for funding additional library space should be identified
separately and independently from the 5-year plan.
Dr. Runeckles ) That   Senate   accept   that   the   acquisition   of
Dean Will ) additional library space be based on the concept
of an expanded central library, i.e. Plan A2.
Dean Larkin stated that the University Library Committee and the Land Users
Committee had also voted in favour of Plan A2.
After further discussion of the proposal the motion was put and carried,
unanimously.
Dr. Runeckles ) That   Senate   urge  the  University  to  proceed
Dean Larkin     ) forthwith with the submission of a proposal to
the Universities Council of British Columbia for
capital funds for the expansion of the
University Library, as a special request,
independent of the University's present 5-year
Capital Building Plan.
Carried 7448.
Wednesday,  December   10,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate  (continued)
Admissions Committee
Dr. Smith presented the following report on the activities of the committee during
1979-80:
"The Committee acts for Senate within the terms of reference and handles appeals
on admission decisions. The Committee met on twenty occasions during 1979-80,
and has met seven times since July I, 1980.
Two policy matters have occupied much of the Committee's time during the last
year and a half: competence in English composition, and the revised admission
requirements. The committee presented a progress report on competence in
English composition to the April 1980 meeting of Senate. The study of the
performance of the 1979—80 English 100 class proposed in that report is almost
complete, and the Committee hopes to present a report to Senate early in 1981.
The second policy matter relates to the 1981-82 admission requirements.
Commencing with the 1981-82 winter session, secondary school graduates must
include the following ten courses for admission: English II, English 12, Social
Studies 11, Algebra 11, French II (or a foreign language 11), a Science 11, and
four courses from the Arts and Science category of the senior secondary
curriculum, three of which must be numbered 12. Considerable apprehension has
been expressed about the effect of these admission requirements on students'
grade eleven and twelve programs. When these admission requirements were
adopted in 1977, it was noted that many of those students admitted to the 1978-79
session presented the combination of courses required for 1981 admission. It is
important to re-emphasize the fact that the new admission requirements are not
intended to discriminate against courses in any one area."
Curriculum Committee  (see Appendix 'B')
Dr.  Richards presented the report.     The committee recommended approval of
curriculum proposals submitted by the Faculty of Arts subject to the following:
i) Geography 327 - that the description be changed to read: "The
European coming to Canada; settlements, landscapes and ways of life
that evolved therefrom."
ii) Geography 328 - that the title be changed to read: "Technology and
Regionalism in Canada from 1867 to the Great Depression" and the
description changed to read: "Geographical implications of the spread
of industrial civilization across Canada."
iii) Geography 375 - that approval of proposed changes be withheld pending
further consultation.
iv) That proposals from the Department of Economics be withheld pending
further consultation between the Department of Economics and the
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration.
Dr. Richards ) That the curriculum proposals of the Faculty of
Dean Will       ) Arts be approved.
Carried 7449.
Wednesday,   December   10,   1980.

REMOTE SENSING  (continued)
Students enter the program by admission as a Master's or Ph.D. candidate in one
of the above. The discipline department and the student's committee chairman
are selected from the Department or Faculty which represents the student's
primary field of interest. Students are encouraged to seek representation on their
committee from other University departments. In consultation with their
committee, specialized programs of study can be developed for highly motivated
and well qualified individuals in any aspect of remote sensing, or in any
application of remote sensing technology. Similarly, specialized research
programs can be developed to suit a student's interest—area and can range from
theoretical development of remote sensing technology (including image analysis
and sensor development) to specialized application of remote sensing (including
vegetation, land classification, land use analysis, and oceanographic studies).
Remote Sensing research facilities are housed in the various associated
departments and include a wide range of modern equipment which is continually
being    up—dated. Scholarships,    fellowships,    and    teaching    and    research
assistantships are available for eight and twelve month periods.
Additional information on graduate studies in remote sensing can be obtained
directly from the Faculty of Graduate Studies or from the Chairman of the
Council on Remote Sensing. Answers to more specific questions on research
direction in the various disciplines relative to remote sensing may be obtained

Proposed Calendar Statement on Gerontology
The following statement for inclusion in the Calendar had been circulated for
information:
GERONTOLOGY
Faculty members in a number of disciplines and professions on campus have a
particular interest in the study of age and the aged. Gerontological concerns are
diverse and multifaceted. Basic and applied age-related research is also
conducted in several departments and professional schools. Educational offerings
in Gerontology have evolved out of the work of the President's Committee on
Gerontology which was established at U.B.C. in 1974.
Although U.B.C. does not offer a Graduate Degree in Gerontology per se, the
Interdisciplinary Committee on Gerontology within Graduate Studies performs an
advisory function enabling students to develop a program of studies with strong
gerontological content.
The following schools and faculties provide educational opportunities at the
graduate level which focus on Gerontology:
Architecture, Community and Regional Planning, Economics,
Education, Family Practice, Geriatric Medicine, Health Care and
Epidemiology, Home Economics, Law, Librarianship, Nursing,
Pharmaceutical Sciences, Psychology, Recreation, Rehabilitation
Medicine, Social Work, Sociology, Theology.
Students will be expected to satisfy the general entrance regulations of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies by application to the Dean of Graduate Studies and
the admission requirements of the appropriate department. Advice about forms of
interrelated studies among several departments will be provided by the
Coordinator of the Interdisciplinary Committee on Gerontology. Programs of
study will be individually tailored and responsive to the particular interests of the
student and the availability of faculty in various fields.
A graduate seminar (non credit) is offered to all students in the program and
draws on the expertise of the Interdisciplinary Gerontological Advisory
Committee and other scholars on campus. The intent of such a seminar is to
acquaint students with faculty who have specialized in specific areas of
gerontology/geriatrics; to encourage communication among graduates in a broad
range of disciplines. An outline of the seminar topics is available from the
Coordinator on Interdisciplinary Studies in Gerontology.
