Minutes of Previous Meeting (continued)
It was requested that under the heading Ad hoc Committee on
Sociological Study of U.B.C. Students, page 5679, the last word under
item (h) be changed to "parents", and that the opening words of the
second sentence of the following paragraph be changed to read:  "However
a member of Senate surmised that undoubtedly ...".
It was also requested that the minutes include reference to the
exchange of remarks concerning elitism which took place during the
discussion of this report.  Various comments were made to the effect
that the statistics contained in the report indicated that the University
was an elitist institution.  However, during the course of the discussion
it was apparent that the word "elitist" was subject to interpretation,
namely provincial, financial, academic or cultural.
The motion with the above corrections was put and carried.

The Secretary read to Senate a letter from Premier Barrett
expressing his appreciation of the message of congratulations to the

Dr. McDowell )   That the present Sznatz Curriculum Committzz
Dr.. Norris   )   be rzplaczd with another committzz called
thz University Curriculum Committzz.
An objection was raised to the wording of the recommendation since
it was felt that it implied that this would no longer be a Senate
committee.  It was explained that the intention was to change the
composition of the committee to include non-Senate members as well as
Senate members and that the change in name had been suggested in order
to distinguish the new committee from the present one.
It was agreed to include Recommendation 2 in the consideration
of the motion.

Business arising from the Minutes
Report of the President's ad hoc Committee on Procedures - Course
and Curriculum Changes (continued)
It was felt that the question of procedure for the selection of
Faculty curriculum committees was not within the purview of Senate.
The motion was lost.
Concern was expressed regarding the size and composition of the
committee. It was felt that the Schools and students would not have
adequate representation.
In amendment:
Dr. Clark   )    That the words  "... at least  7 5 mzmbzrs" bz
Mr. Anderson )   changed to read:  "... at least 10 members"
During the debate which followed concern was expressed that the
representatives of the Faculty curriculum committees might not take a
University-wide view but rather attempt to promote narrow Faculty
interests.  It was pointed out that Senate Curriculum Committee
members were constantly subject to pressures of this nature.
The amendment was carried.
Dean White )     That thz eight recommendations outlinzd in thz

Business arising from the Minutes
Report of the President's ad hoc Committee on Procedures - Course
and Curriculum Changes (continued)
A query was raised concerning the selection of a chairman for the
reconstituted curriculum committee and also the selection of the
representatives of the Faculty curriculum committees.
It was agreed that the Nominating Committee be asked to make
recommendations at the December meeting of Senate.
Some members were concerned at the adoption of Recommendation 5
that Category B proposals (i.e. minor changes) be approved at Faculty
level.
It was explained that the intention was that all Faculties be
asked to report to the Senate Curriculum Committee all items approved
by them under Category B.  The committee would then still have the
option of deciding whether these were in fact Category B proposals or
Category A proposals (i.e. new courses or substantial changes).
Following further debate the motion was put and carried.
A request was made that information be provided at the December
meeting concerning how Category B items are currently handled.

committee was established.

Several senators had expressed the opinion that  there was  a need
for a continuing study on what happened to students when they arrive
at  university and also  to explore  the  question of why  they leave.
This   resulted  in Recommendation 2.

University which led to Recommendation 3.

bz approvzd.
Carried
School of Rehabilitation Medicine
A proposal had been submitted to re-name the First Year in
Rehabilitation Medicine "Preparatory Year" since the professional
course did not begin until the Second Year.  Students registering
in the First Year could have mistakenly believed that they were
registering in a professional programme in Rehabilitation Medicine
and would automatically be accepted into the Second Year.  However,
since fewer than 40 of these students could be absorbed into the
Second Year it was felt that the present arrangement was misleading.
The Agenda Committee felt that the proposal would not solve the
problem and recommended that students taking the pre-professional
studies for Rehabilitation Medicine should do so in another Faculty,
i.e. in either the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Arts.  The
orientation course given by the School would probably need to be a
non-credit course open to all those interested. Through the orientation
lectures the faculty of the school would be able to maintain a contact
with most of the students who would ultimately apply for admission to
the Second Year as presently constituted.
Dr. Young        ) That studznts taking thz prz-prohessional

It was also pointed out that the Dean of Medicine had been
requested to report on all changes in connection with the Clinical
Clerkship programme not later than the December 1972 meeting of Senate.
Student Membership in Faculties
A request was made that the Senate Committee on Student Membership
in Faculties be urged to report to Senate as soon as possible.  It was
reported that requests had already been made to the Dean of Arts for
student representation at the Faculty level and that similar requests
would be made to other Faculties.
Uganda
Dean Bates reported that seven students from Uganda had been
accepted into the Faculty of Medicine.
As the report of the Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing and
the Report of the Tributes Committee concerned matters that as a courtesy
to those involved should not be released for publication, members of the
gallery were asked to leave. 5707.
Wednesday, November 15, 1972.
Report of the Senate Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing
Dean McClean reported on behalf of the committee. The first item
was an appeal from a Mr. Grant against the decision of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies to dismiss him from a doctoral programme of studies.
The appeal was based on purported inadequate supervision and administration
by the Department concerned, on the adequacy of the screening examination
upon the results of which the dismissal was based and on the procedures
of the Department.  The committee found no substantial basis on which
to be critical of any of the Departmental procedures and, therefore,
dismissed the appeal.
Dean McClean )      That the recommendation oh thz committee
Dean Cowan  )     to dismiss thz appeal, bz approvzd.
Carried
Dean Cowan reported that Mr. Grant had subsequently registered for
a Master's degree in English.
The second appeal considered by the committee was by a Miss Wilcox.
This student appealed against the ruling of the School of Social Work
that a "review of standing" had in fact been a "supplemental examination"
of a set of failed courses.  During the hearing of the appeal arguments
were presented for the granting of full standing for the set of courses,
but this was rejected by the committee.  The committee agreed that
administrative procedures, although with the intention of permitting
an early decision for the student, were not clear.  The committee ruled
that provision be made for a supplemental examination in the study
concerned not later than April 1973. 5708.
Wednesday, November 15, 1972.
Report of the Senate Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing  (continued)

It was agreed that the procedure for dealing with appeals would
be considered at the next meeting.
