Wednesday,  September  12,   1984.
Faculty of Dentistry - Supplemental Examinations  (continued)
It was explained in the material circulated that the course load of first year
dental students has been increased through the addition of a number of courses. In
previous years only three supplemental examinations were allowed provided the
student had attained an average of 60% in the work of the year. The Faculty felt
that the requirement was unfair and proposed the above amendment.

Dean Beagrie  )       concerning supplemental examinations be approved.

and 212.
The motion was put and carried.
Nominating Committee
Dr. Elder, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, presented the committee's
recommendations for membership on the various committees of Senate and reported
that the committee had tried to accommodate the preferences indicated by members
in their responses to the request that members state the committees on which they
would like to serve. 8242.
Wednesday,  September  12,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Nominating Committee  (continued)
Dr. Elder also reported that Mrs. A. E Macdonald wished to withdraw from the
membership of the Library Committee. Mr. M. G. McMillan was nominated to
replace Mrs. Macdonald.
Dr. Elder    ) That   the   recommendations   of   the   Nominating
Dr. Stager  ) Committee be approved.
Carried
Dr. Elder stated that the Committee had noted that the ad hoc Committee on
Standards in English had not met for some considerable time and that perhaps there
was no longer a need for such a committee.
Dr. Elder    ) That the Senate ad hoc Committee on Standards in
Dr. Stager   ) English be discharged.
Rev. Burns, Chairman of the ad hoc Committee on Standards in English, stated
that the committee felt that its role was to monitor the effects of the
implementation of the new admissions policy of 1981 and then to see if there was any
noticeable change in the quality of written English. He stated that the Chairman of
English 100 was prepared to submit a report on this matter, after which the
committee could be dissolved.
The motion was put and lost.
Faculty of Arts
Change in name of the School of Librarianship
Dean Will ) That  the name of the School of Librarianship be
Dr. Kelly  ) changed  to  the School  of  Library,   Archival   and
Information Studies.
It was stated in the material circulated that in I960 Senate had approved the
establishment of the School of Librarianship. Until 1971 its program led to a
one-year Bachelor of Library Science degree; since that date to a two-year Master
of Library Science degree. In 1981 the scope of the School's program was increased
to include Archival Studies. This new program, administered jointly by the School and
the Department of History, leads to the Master of Archival Studies degree. 8243.
Wednesday,  September   12,   1984.
Faculty of Arts
Change in name of the School of Librarianship  (continued)
Courses offered by the School, while dealing with libraries and archives as
institutions, are also concerned generally with the creation, use and management of
information in all its forms. The fact is reflected in the titles and descriptions of
many courses. This situation is common throughout the world; over half of the
schools in North America and the United Kingdom therefore include the word
'information' in their names. Similarly, to an increasing extent graduates are finding
employment not in libraries and archives but in the information sector generally as
consultants, researchers, editors, broadcasters, etc.
in the interest of general understanding, this School's name should reflect more
accurately the nature of its concerns and curriculum. Accordingly it is recommended
that the name of the School be changed from the School of Librarianship to the
School of Library, Archival and Information Studies.
The motion was put and carried.
Report of the Registrar on Spring Session Enrolment 1984
The report of the Registrar on Spring Session Enrolment for 1984 was received for
information.
Report of the Registrar on Summer Session Enrolment 1984
The report of the Registrar on Summer Session Enrolment for 1984 was received
for information.
Dr. Dennison raised a query concerning the effect of new policies with regard to
summer session courses and the potential impact on enrolment. Vice-President Smith
stated that he hoped to be in a position to report on this matter at the next meeting of
Senate.
Winter Session Enrolment
The Registrar reported that although late registration and registration in the
Faculty of Graduate Studies was continuing, preliminary figures indicated a slight
decrease in Winter Session enrolment. As of September I I, 1984 it appeared that
enrolment would be down in the order of five hundred students from enrolment in the
1983-84 Winter Session. 8244.
Wednesday,  September   12,   1984.
Winter Session Enrolment  (continued)
All of the reported decrease was accounted for in first year enrolment. The
Registrar reported that the no-show rate for new first year students was up from a
previous twenty percent to approximately thirty-three percent. Preliminary enrolment
data indicated new first year enrolment was down by about fourteen percent from the
quota set by Senate and by about fifteen percent from new first year enrolment in the
1983-84 Winter Session.
Dean Will requested that a survey be conducted to determine the reasons new first
year students admitted to the University did not register. The Chairman indicated that
such a survey would be investigated.

endeavouring to obtain a Certificate in the spring of 1985.
Report from St. Mark's College
The following report had been circulated for information:
"There are three full-time members of the academic staff of the college; they are
joined by a full-time programme coordinator and counsellor and a number of
part—time assistants in providing academic, chaplaincy and counselling services
within the university community.
Graduate credit courses in Patristic Theology have been offered as well as several
non-credit introductory courses in Theology. These latter courses are open to all
and are attended by undergraduates and graduates, many of whom are in
Education. Students fulfilling the requirements of these non-credit courses
receive letters of academic recommendation which are given consideration by
Catholic School Boards in their hiring procedures. These courses, in a relatively
small way, meet a need in the preparation of teachers for some religiously
affiliated schools.
Throughout the month of June, 1983, the college, in conjunction with the Cardinal
Carter Centre for Bioethics in Toronto, presented an Institute on Bioethics. There
were seventeen participants, representing various branches of health care service.
The Institute was conducted by two visiting professors from the Faculty of
Theology of the University of St. Michael's College and the Toronto School of
Theology.
Members of the college staff have taught or been otherwise involved in the
following University of British Columbia departments or programmes: French,
English, Classics, Arts I, Continuing Education, Athletics. Besides some
publication in the area of Patristic studies and, in connection with the General
Assembly of the World Council of Churches and the papal visit, in Scripture and
Ecclesiology, the staff has been involved in the broader civic community through
talks at and participation in professional development days, conferences and other
gatherings of teachers. Discussions and planning with the Vancouver Catholic
Public School Board continue with a view to expanding the college's current
academic Theology offerings through certificate, diploma and, eventually,
graduate degree programmes related to teacher education. Another full-time
staff member, now completing a doctoral programme with concentration on
Catechetics, will join the staff next year. 8246.
Wednesday,  September  12,   1984.
Report from St. Mark's College  (continued)
"The library collection continues to grow and is supervised by Mrs. Fanny
Woodsworth, a retired member of the University Library staff; she is assisted at
arranged times during the year by a visiting librarian from St. Joseph's University
College in the University of Alberta. The library holdings strengthen and augment
existing theological and philosophical collections on the university campus. We
regret that financial considerations hinder our acquisitions being registered in the
University catalogue.
The college remains the centre for The University of British Columbia Roman
Catholic Chaplaincy and, with it, has sponsored lecture series, panel discussions
and other presentations on matters relating faith to intellectual, social, moral and
economic aspects of life. Parts of the building are used periodically by university
departments and programmes.
The present Principal has submitted his resignation, and we await the appointment
of a successor by the Board of Management of the college."
Report from Regent College
The following report had been circulated for information:
"In accordance with the requirements of The University of British Columbia for
affiliated colleges, it is my pleasure to report to Senate on the activities of
Regent College for the period outlined.
During the year past we have again mounted a significant summer school program,
reaching to professional perople from a wide geographical and vocationsl range.
Visiting faculty included theologians as well as scholars like Professor Donald
McKay of the University of Keele, whose research and teaching was of an
integrative nature. In our full-time academic programs, we averaged about 250
full-time equivalent students, with part-time students bringing the totals to
approximately 400. At the convocation on May 7th, the following diplomas and
degrees were awarded:
Diploma in Christian Studies (I year, post-graduate) 91
Master of Christian Studies (2 year, with thesis) 20
Master of Theological Studies (2 year, with examination) 14
Master of Divinity (3 year professional 22
Master of Theology (4 year, with thesis) 3
In 1983 Regent College was granted "Candidate for Accredited" status from the
Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada. This is given
to a school, following an association visit, that is expected to meet the criteria
for full accreditation when the self-study is submitted. It was the college's first
application for such, and we were pleased at the response. Our target for
completion of the self-study is late May 1984, with a visit from an accredidation
team expected in the 1984-85 year. 8247.
Wednesday,  September   12,   1984.
Report from Regent College  (continued)
"Faculty/student ratios continue at the same level, with several additional
appointments made during the year. In particular, I would note the appointment,
after a full search, of Dr. William J. Dumbrell, to the position of Professor of
Biblical Studies. Dr. Dumbrell, who is expected to take up his post in September,
is currently Vice-Principal and Professor of Moore College, Sydney, and Professor
of Biblical Studies at the University of Sydney.
Faculty at the college continue active in publciation, with papers read at major
professional societies. At least four books and over twenty articles were released
during the year. The college continues an active encouragement of scholarly
activity through a liberal sabbatical policy and appropriate teaching loads.
Library facilities at the college (jointly held with Carey Hall) have grown this year
to over 25,000 catalogued volumes which, in addition to contracted services at
Vancouver School of Theology, have been adequate for the degree programs. I
would like to pay tribute to the library staff at U.B.C which continues fruitful
cooperation with Regent and V.S.T. in the development of an increasingly
sophisticated theological collection in the university complex.
Also during the year the college was pleased to provide modest support to the
Department of Classics in its archaeological project at Capernaum. It is the hope
of both the college and the department that this project will increasingly involve
students and faculty from both institutions.
Finally, I would thank Professor Terry Brown for another year of useful
representation from the Senate of U.B.C. on the Senate of the college. It has also
been a pleasure for the principal of the college to serve on the Senate of the
University, as well as on the Curriculum Committee. If there are any ways in
which the college faculty can be of further assistance to the fulfillment of the
university's goals, we are anxious to explore such."
Open University Consortium of British Columbia
Vice-President Smith informed Senate that on March 13, 1984 the Minister of
Universities wrote to the University Presidents calling on them to have discussions
about the possibility of coordinating the universities' activities in distance education. A
committee was established which met in four occasions commencing on April 13.
Vice-President Smith was U.B.C.'s representative on that committee. A report was
submitted to the Minister on July 19 which included recommendations that the Open
Learning Institute establish an open degree (that is, one for which the units could be
taken at institutions other than the Open Learning Institute); that a Board of the
Consortium be established comprising two representatives from each of the three
universities and two from each of the Open Learning Institute and the Knowledge
Network of the West, and that the Open Learning Institute establish an Academic
Council comprising four faculty members from each of the three universities and four
faculty members to be nominated by the Principal of the Open Learning Institute (such 8248.
Wednesday,  September  12,   1984.
Open University Consortium of British Columbia  (continued)
faculty members to be drawn from the three universities). It is anticipated that the
funding at present designated for the delivery of credit and non-credit programs to
non—metropolitan communities; the funds designated for program development on the
Knowledge Network of the West, and funds designated for university programs in the
Open Learning Institute will be grouped together under one line item identified as
Distance Education in the Grants (other) section of the Ministry's annual grants. The
degree program will be established by the Academic Council. Admission will be to that
degree and if UBC courses are offered for the degree, students not admissible to U.B.C.
will not be imposed on this University. Rather, U.B.C. will contract with the Open
Learning Institute to provide service to such students.
The meeting adjourned at 9.00 p.m.
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, October 10, 1984.
