Minutes of the Previous Meeting
The Chairman referred to a letter he had received from the Dean of
the Faculty of Dentistry concerning page 3849 of the Minutes where it Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3887
Minutes of the Previous Meeting (Continued)
was reported that the Faculty of Dentistry had been specifically against
the use of the term "Centre".  The proposal that had been placed before
the Faculty of Dentistry and approved by them was for the establishment
of a "Division of Continuing Education in the Health Sciences".
Subsequently in the submissions to Senate, it was noted that the
designation "Centre" had been substituted for "Division".  This had not
been discussed by the Faculty of Dentistry and its members could not,
therefore, support it in Senate.

Student Membership on ffenate
The Chairman informed Senate that Miss Emmott had decided not to
return to University in January and that the Student Council had elected
Mr. Don Munton to replace her for the remainder of her term of office.
Dean Healy  )    That Senate appoint l\ti. Von Mmnton

The Academic Year
This item was moved earlier on the Agenda in response to a request.
It was explained that in the past the University had started
lectures for most faculties on the third Monday in September and that
the Second Term extended into the first week in the month of May. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3888
The Academic Year  (Continued)
Moving the whole Winter Session ahead by one week would permit the
Second Term to end in April.  This would benefit students who rented
apartments and also solve problems that the later termination of the
Second Term posed for Education students in arranging post-sessional
practice teaching.
The proposal would also equalize the time available for lectures
in the two terms and permit greater flexibility in the offering of one-
term courses.
It was agreed that the Deans concerned should exercise discretion
in permitting the later registration of students in programmes of study
that necessitated their presence in off-campus activities until mid-
September.
Dean Scarfe   )   That thz pKopo&ed datzi,  h0>l
Dean Okulitch )   thz Acodzmic  V'zaK 196S-69  be

It was agreed that the proposed date of Congregation be moved from
June into May.
The motion was then put and carried.
Informal Meeting of Senate with Students
The Chairman departed from the Agenda to thank members of Senate
for the interest they had shown at the recent meeting to which the
students had invited members of Senate for informal discussion.  He felt
that it had been a most successful evening and he had been gratified by
the large number of members of Senate who attended. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3889
Presentation of Brief by Student Council on "The Open Senate"
The Chairman introduced a delegation from the Alma Mater Society's
Student Council:
Mr. Shaun Sullivan, President of the Alma Mater Society
Mr. David Hoye, Treasurer of the Alma Mater Society
Mr. Danny Stoffman, Editor of the Ubyssey
Mr. Stan Persky, President of the Arts Undergraduate Society
The Chairman thanked the students for their reasonable approach to
the discussion of the question of open Senate meetings and for their
amicable solution to the problem of the threatened "sit-in".
One of the Student Senators thanked the Chairman and others on
Senate for their co-operation.
Mr. Sullivan explained that the requests were essentially as
presented previously at the informal meeting at International House but
that a few additional clauses had been added to the brief.  Students
felt that in addition to the publication of informative agendas and
summaries of the proceedings of Senate, students had a right to see
their representatives performing and to see how the decisions that
affected their academic lives were made.
Mr. Sullivan thanked the Chairman for allowing the Student Council
to present the brief. He asked Senate to give consideration to the
arguments put forward and expressed the hope that Senate would be
persuaded to change its earlier decision concerning open Senate meetings. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3890
Presentation of Brief by Student Council on "The Open Senate" (Continued)
Mr. Persky gave his views on the topic in terms of a university
being an educational experience for a student in which he should
participate in every aspect, including its government.
Members of Senate then asked the students a few questions, after
which the delegation left the meeting.
Dr.  Clark     ) Tliat the Ckainman appoint a
Mr. Larsen    ) committee, ^m name* iubmittzd to
kirn by membeAA oh Sznatz to con&ideA
the. students' bnizh on "Thz Opzn
Senate".
It was suggested that this committee should not consist entirely
of members of Senate and that four members from the A.M.S. or student
body, four members of the Faculty Association and four members of Senate
might be appropriate.
Several objections were raised to this suggestion on the basis that
it was Senate's responsibility and that whilst it was acceptable and
desirable for Senate to consult non-members, it was not acceptable to
have them as members of the Committee.
It was agreed that the Chairman would choose ten people from the
names submitted to him by members of Senate - the names to be in by the
end of the week commencing February 19, 1968.
The motion was then carried. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3891
Presentation of Brief by Student Council
on "The Open Senate" (Continued)
The Chairman stated that he would like to see more of the informal
type of meeting with students and would investigate the possibility of
having such meetings on a regular basis to discuss problems of mutual
interest.
Mr.  Munton        ) Tkat the. ph.opo&al to investigate
Dean McCreary ) the. poAAibility oh having inhoKmat

Student Body on a moKz nzgulaA

The Chairman explained that he would like to have Dr. Hare's
opinion on the subject but meanwhile that he would investigate the
possibilities.
The proposal then received agreement without a formal vote.
Notification of Approval by the Board of Governors of
Senate Recommendations
Subject to necessary funds being available, all recommendations
of Senate dealing with new courses, course and curriculum changes and
changes in regulations contained in Appendix B of the Minutes of the
December 13, 1967 meeting of Senate had been approved.
Reports of Senate Committees
Curriculum Committee
This report appeared in two parts and it was agreed that
Section I, up to Page 7, dealing with general principles, be Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3892
Reports of Senate Committees
Curriculum Committee (Continued)
tabled until the Committee on the Role and Organization of Senate
was ready to consider it with other related matters - the
report to be passed to that committee.
It was also agreed that Part I of the report be passed to
the Chairmen of the Faculty Curriculum Committees to be kept in
mind for submissions to Senate for the May meeting.
The item - "Increasing Number of 1*5-Unit Courses" on Page 7
of Part I of the report was referred to Dean Cowan and Dr. Belshaw
for investigation, together with Summer Session and Extra-
Sessional Courses which they already had under review.
The recommendations in Part II of the Curriculum Committee
report were as follows:
(i)    Architecture 406 - Workshop
Reduction from six to four weeks.
(ii)   Admission to Architecture in 1969 and thereafter
That the "normal basis" be a baccalaureate degree but that
provision be made for exceptional applicants.
(iii)  Residence requirements for the B.A. degree
Since not all subject matter lends itself to the general
character of summer session courses, that the regulation
permitting summer session courses to shorten the residence
requirement be made subject to approval by the Dean. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3893
Reports of Senate Committees
Curriculum Committee  (Continued)
(iv)   Proposal to institute a "Pass-Fail" system
Report was critical of suggestion but made no specific
recommendation that the proposal be rejected.
(v)    Dental Hygiene Programme, Calendar statement
That statements considered superfluous be deleted, and
that the term "professional" which had been criticized
earlier by some Senate members be permitted.
(vi)   Faculty of Education Curriculum - Education 402,
The Psychology of Creativity
That this course not be approved as it was redundant in
terms of the content of other courses in Education.
(vii)  Faculty of Graduate Studies
That a modification be approved of the course title and
description of Forestry 562 - Multiple Regression Methods -
Applications in Forestry and Related Fields.
(viii) School of Nursing Curriculum
That approval be given to curriculum proposals subject to
title changes of Nursing 150, 202, 252.
A discussion took place on the "Pass-Fail" proposal.  It was
explained that the main purpose of the proposal was to allow a
student to take a course outside his normal field of interest
without jeopardizing his standing, since a course taken on this
basis would not affect his overall average. The arrangement, it
was hoped, would encourage students to broaden their academic
interests. Although credit would be granted for one course each
year taken on a "Pass-Fail" basis, students would be advised that Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3894
Reports of Senate Committees
Curriculum Committee  (Continued)
they should consider "Pass-Fail" courses as extras, since these
upgraded courses could not be used in calculations necessary to
determine qualification for Government Scholarships.
With regard to the proposals from the School of Nursing, it
was reported that agreement has been reached to re-title Nursing
150, 202, 252 as follows:
Nursing 150 - Introduction to Interpersonal Relationships
in Nursing
Nursing 252 - Interpersonal Relationships in Nursing
Nursing 202 - Principles of Learning and Instruction for
Nursing Practice.
Education 402 - Psychology of Creativity
A discussion took place on the recommendations of the
Curriculum Committee not to approve the above course.  The
objection of the Committee was the redundancy of course material
in relation to other Education courses.  After considerable debate
the following motion was put:
Dr. Mcintosh )    That Education 401  be appnovzd,
Dean Scarfe  )   contAaJty to the n.zcommzndation&
oh the CuAJiicutum ComnUXtzz.

Carried Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3895
Reports of Senate Committees  (Continued)
New Programmes Committee
(a)  Proposal of the Faculty of Science to establish a
Department of Computer Science
The Committee had recommended that Senate approve the
proposal to establish a Department of Computer Science in the
Faculty of Science.  However, in making this recommendation
it did not intend that the legitimate activities of other
Faculties and Departments, in particular those of the Department of Electrical Engineering, should be jeopardized.
Considering the possibility of this overlapping jurisdiction,
the Committee recommended that the Department of Computer
Science and other Faculties and Departments interested in
computers take care to promote co-operation among themselves.
A discussion followed on the desirability of a
clarification of responsibility in relation to matters
affecting computers and computing.  It was pointed out that
the Committee had intended that there should be shared
responsibility in these matters since with the diversity of
interests represented in several departments it would be
inappropriate to allot to a specific person the senior
responsibility in computer science.
Dean Okulitch) That thz piopo&al h^m thz

Carried Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3896
Reports of Senate Committees
New Programmes Committee  (Continued)
(b)  Proposal of tne Faculty of Education for a Diploma
Programme in Education of the Deaf
The Committee had recommended that Senate approve the
proposal for a Diploma in Education of the Deaf, but that at
the same time it request the Faculty of Education to consider
reducing the required courses for the diploma to 9 or 12 units.
Dean Scarfe ) That thz proposal to establish a
Mr. Miller ) diploma Vn.ogH.ammz in Education oh
thz Vzah  be acczptzd but that thz
load be reduced to 11 units.
Carried
Committee on the(Role and Organization of Senate
Although the original request to the Committee had been to set
up terms of reference for a proposed Committee on Priorities
(P.3823 Senate Minutes) the Committee did not feel that there
should be one committee on priorities.  The recommendations were
as follows:
(i)   That an 'ad hoc' committee to consider and recommend Long
Range Objectives be established as soon as possible.
(ii)  That a standing committee on Academic Building Needs be set
up.
(iii)  That the assignment of priorities be added to the terms of
reference of these and other relevant committees in due
course, particularly the New Programmes Committee and the
Curriculum Committee.
Dr. Smith  ) That thz KzpohX oh thz Committzz
Mr. Waldman ) on thz Rolz and Organization oh
Sznatz be adoptzd. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3897
Reports of Senate Committees
Committee on the Role and Organization of Senate  (Continued)
Doubt was expressed as to the desirability of having a
committee on Academic Building Needs in the near future, and the
following amendment to the motion was put:
Dr. Finn    )    That thz consideration oh thz
Dean Okulitch )    CommittZZ on Academic BuiZding
Needs bz Izht until thz May meeting
oh Sznatz whzn other committzzs
would bz considered.
There was debate on this amendment and also on the proposal
contained in the report that the Committee considered it inappropriate for a vote to be taken in Senate on the reports of
these committees.
The amendment to the motion was then put and lost.
Dr. Belshaw )     That the second sentence in
Mr. Holland )    Paragraph 21 on Page 5 oh the
report "We do not think it is
appropriate to take a vote in
Senate on their reports" be
deleted.
It was explained that the reason for this motion was that such
a restriction upon Senate's behaviour was unnecessary and should
be removed.
The amendment to the motion was carried.
It was suggested that the report be accepted but that the exact
manner in which Senate handle the recommendations be deferred. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3898
Reports of Senate Committees
Committee on the Role and Organization of Senate  (Continued)
Dr. Scott  )     That thz przvious amzndmznt to
Dean Riedel )     delete the second szntzncz in
Paragraph 11 on Page  5 oh the

Defeated
After further discussion the motion, with the amendment,
was finally carried.

zach oh thz two Committees obtaining the consent oh the people
nominated to serve and hour names
in support oh each nominee.
Results oh the election to bz
announced behore the May meeting oh
Senate.
The question of whether nominees should be members of Senate
was discussed and it was agreed that, whereas it was in order for
the President to appoint non-members to the committees, Senate
should concern itself with nominating and electing its own members.
The motion was then carried.
University Library Committee
The Librarian declined an invitation to speak on material
before Senate detailing problems of the Library, preferring to
answer questions that might arise. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3899
Reports of Senate Committees
University Library Committee (Continued)
In reply to a question as to whether consideration had been
given to the possible use of part of Brock Hall for study space,
the Chairman gave his assurance that this possibility had not been
overlooked.
A question was asked about the purchasing of collections when
funds were so short and the Librarian replied that the main problem
was the supply of material for undergraduate students.  The
situation with regard to graduate students had been greatly improved.
Report of the Committee on Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
It was agreed that the new awards and changes in awards, shown in
Appendix A, be accepted, subject to the approval of the Board of
Governors and that letters of thanks be sent to the donors.  Approval
was given to the medals, prizes, scholarships and fellowships in
Lists No. 6 and 7.
Proposals from the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
Proposals affecting the language requirement
for the B.A. degree
1.  That the Arts Faculty revise its present requirement that
all students must take two years of a foreign language at
university to read:  all students must offer as a
requirement for graduation courses in one foreign language
to Grade XII level or its equivalent at university, that
is, two years. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3900
Proposals from the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
Proposals affecting the language requirement
for the B.A. degree  (Continued)
2. That students entering with Grade XI standing be required
to take an additional 3 units of the same language or
6 units of a different language in their first or first
and second years.
3. That students entering with less than Grade XI level
language be required to take 6 units of one language in
their first or first and second years.
4. That, except for transfer students and certain other
unusual exceptions, no student be granted third year
standing until his language requirement has been satisfied.
5. That the Faculty consider the institution of beginning
6 unit intensive courses (first and second year level) in
French, Italian, Spanish, German, Latin and Greek (similar
to those in Chinese, Japanese and Russian) for those
students who wish to satisfy their language deficiency in
a single year and for students who wish to begin the study
of a second language at university.
6. That individual departments in the Faculty of Arts specify
their language requirements over and above those recommended in this brief; and that the Arts Faculty incorporate in
its Calendar a strong statement encouraging Arts students
to increase their attention to foreign languages.
Dean Healy ) That the proposal oh tiiz faculty
Mr. Larsen ) oh Arts concerning thz languagz
rzquirzmznt bz approvzd.
Mr. Fredeman, Chairman of the Dean's Committee concerning
the Language Requirement, had been invited to attend the
meeting. He explained that the Faculty had carefully reconsidered the proposal submitted earlier to Senate and now
submitted it again, substantially unchanged.  He pointed out
that a second language was still required for graduation, but Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3901
Proposals from the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
Proposals affecting the language requirement
for the B.A. degree (Continued)
that instead of having to take two years of a language other
than English at university a student could satisfy this
requirement by having completed Grade XII in a language at
secondary school. This proposal made the language requirement
more consistent; the level of competence achieved in four years
at secondary school was comparable to that following two years
of study in a language begun at university.
An opinion was expressed that the effect of the new
regulation would be to encourage many more students to take a
language "12" in school and thereby lower the standards of the
course.
Some members of Senate expressed concern at any reduction
in the language requirement on the basis that a university
should consider a second language as basic to a liberal
education.
It was generally agreed that proficiency in French as a
requirement of university education at this University should
be looked at on a university-wide basis.  Furthermore, any
effort to promote greater use of the French language was not
initially the responsibility of the Faculty of Arts but rather
of the elementary-secondary public school system. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3902
Proposals from the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
Proposals affecting the language requirement
for the B.A. degree (Continued)
A proficiency test for all students on admission to the
university was suggested for knowledge of a language other
than English.
Dr. Friedman )       That the matter be reherred to
Mr. Bourne     )        a Senate Committee along with
a univzrsity-widz consideration
oh thz spzcial status oh tliz
Vrzndx language.
After further discussion the motion to refer this matter
to another committee was lost.
The original motion was then carried.
Extra-Sessional Courses proposed for the period
May 1 - July 31. 1968:
English 200 Literature and Composition
English 300 Seminar for Majors
English 303 English Composition
English 425 British Drama, 1880 to the Present
History 429 History of the American West
Psychology 409 Cognitive Processes
Sociology 301 Deviance
Sociology 425 Urban Sociology
The effect of these courses being given inter-sessionally
was not known at this stage and it was therefore agreed that
they be authorized, as requested, but that the two-man
committee considering Summer Session and Extra-Sessional
courses be asked to investigate their implications. Wednesday, February 14, 1968.
3903
Proposals from the Faculties (Continued)
School of Home Economics
Proposal to rename the School - the School of Human
Nutrition and Family Ecology
The Agenda Committee had suggested that the change in
name implied a change in educational objectives and should,
therefore, be referred to the New Programmes Committee for
consultation with Agriculture, Education, Medicine and Science.
Dean Healy   )   That thz rzcommzndation to
Dean McCreary )   change thz name oh the School
