circulated at the meeting.  These points together with the
recommendations of the Agenda Committee were as follows:

Annual Report of the Centre for Continuing Education (P.5705)
Discussion of the report had been postponed at the previous
meeting.
Mr. Selman commented briefly on the report.  He stated that
Fall registration had increased significantly to over 22,000.  This
represented an increase of almost 3,000 over the previous year.
The item given most emphasis in the forword of the report was
the view that it was time that the University made more adequate
and satisfactory provision for students seeking to earn degrees
by means of part-time study.  Members of the Council of the Centre 5720.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Business arising from the Minutes
Annual Report of the Centre for Continuing Education  (continued)
for Continuing Education considered this to be an urgent matter.
Dean Cowan stated that although full-time enrolment in
Graduate schools throughout Canada had decreased slightly,
part-time enrolment had increased very rapidly.  He felt that
the University should expand its opportunities in terms of degree
programmes on a part-time basis.
Dean Cowan  )      That the rzport bz rzczivzd.
Dean Scarfe  )
Carried
Attention was drawn to an item on page 10 of the report
stating that enrolment in correspondence courses had increased
for the first time in three years which might indicate a new level
of interest on the part of graduates from the two-year colleges.
In reply to a query as to whether the increase could be attributed
to a lack of opportunities for part-time study at the University,
Mr. Selman stated that he had no information on the background of
those who took correspondence courses,
Present Third Year Curriculum in the Faculty of Medicine (P.5706)
At the request of Senate a statement outlining modifications
to the Third Year Curriculum had been circulated.  The modifications
resulted from the lengthening of the Third Year Programme in
Medicine to 32 weeks.  This change had been approved by Senate
previously. 5721.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Business arising from the Minutes
Present Third Year Curriculum in the Faculty of Medicine  (continued)
Dr. Webber stated that the modifications had been approved
by the Faculty Curriculum Committee and would be presented to
the Faculty of Medicine for approval at their January meeting.
They would then be forwarded to the Senate Curriculum Committee.
It was explained that in terms of overall time in weeks the
modifications represented a return to what had been the situation
prior to the implementation of the Clinical Clerkship Programme.
There had not been any change in content of the courses but there
had been a change in the approach to the material.  Teaching was
moving from a departmental orientation to a systems orientation.
It was felt that information concerning this systems approach,
which was a fairly significant change in the orientation of the
Third Year Programme, should be forwarded to the Curriculum
Committee.
Report by the Dean of Medicine on Fourth Year Clinical Clerkship
(P.5706)
At its meeting of May 17, 1972 Senate received the report of
an ad hoc committee on the Fourth Year Clinical Clerkship.  A
resolution was passed requesting the Dean of Medicine to respond
to the following recommendations contained in the report:-
A written statement of objectives and responsibilities
should be provided for each of the clerkship rotations.
These should be circulated to all members of the active
and resident staff and to the clerks at the beginning of
each rotation. 5722.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Business arising from the Minutes
Report by the Dean of Medicine on Fourth Year Clinical Clerkship
(continued)
2. A minimum of 4 hours a week should be set aside for formalized
teaching sessions - directed solely to the clerks.  These
sessions must take precedence over ward, O.R. and case room
duties except under extraordinary circumstances.  Sessions
such as ward rounds, Grand Rounds, seminars etc., directed
also to resident and active staff should not be included in
the 4-hour minimum.
3. Clerks should not be obligated to scrub on cases which they
have not worked up. Clerks should scrub on cases they have
worked up whenever possible.
4. Night duty and weekend duty should be no more frequent than
1 in 4.  This should be the average throughout the clerkship.
5. Clerks should not service wards at night with which they have
no daytime contact, except under extraordinary circumstances.
6. The clerk's progress should be reviewed with him by the staff
man responsible for that service, at the mid-point as well as
at the end of each service.
7. A relevant reading list (texts and medical journals) should
be provided to the clerk at the beginning of each service.
The reading list should reflect the departmental objectives.
8. The clerkship should be shortened by 9 weeks and the 3rd year
lengthened by 8 weeks. The new timetable for the clerkship
should be as follows:
Department Present Proposed
(weeks) (weeks)
H.C.E. 2 2
Medicine 12 10
Surgery 12 10
Ob. Gynaecology 8 7
Paediatrics 8 7
Psychiatry 8 7
Elective 12 10
62 53
9.  The operation of the clerkship should be reviewed at Departmental
meetings at least 6 times each year. 5723.

Business arising from the Minutes
Report by the Dean of Medicine on Fourth Year Clinical Clerkship
(continued)
10. In addition to continual review and modification of the
clerkship by clinical departments as necessary, the
curriculum committee should formally review the academic
content of the clerkship at yearly intervals. This review
should commence at least four months before each new clerkship
programme begins to allow time for introduction of possible
modifications.
11. A recommendation regarding the inclusion of ambulatory
medicine in the clerkship programme should be made after
consideration of all the matters that bear on this subject.
Referring to Recommendation 1 Dean Bates reported that this
would be facilitated by a Faculty retreat being planned for 1973
with students and faculty which would provide an opportunity for
clarification of the objectives of individual departments in
relation to other departments.
Regarding Recommendation 2, all departments had made available
at least four hours a week of formal teaching, and each group of
clerks had been given an opportunity to have input into how much
additional formal teaching they would like to have.
Recommendation 3 had been implemented.
Recommendation 4 had been implemented except with regard to the
Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology where it had been agreed
by faculty and students that some latitude was necessary.
Recommendation 5 had been fully implemented. 5724.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972,
Business arising from the Minutes
Report by the Dean of Medicine on Fourth Year Clinical Clerkship
(continued)
The review suggested in Recommendation 6 continued to be a
problem.  However, there had been a great deal of review with the
clerks on their progress.
Recommendation 7 had not yet been fully implemented.  There
were a number of reading lists.  Some departments referred students
to sections of specific textbooks.  There had also been a review
of the availability of particular textbooks in both libraries.
Recommendation 8 had been implemented.
Recommendation 9 had not been implemented in a formal way
but there had been considerable review of the programme within
departments and a continuing active review was taking place.
Recommendation 10.  It was reported that the clerkship was
being reviewed by the curriculum committee on a continuing basis
and that recommendations and changes were constantly being made.
Recommendation 11 had not been implemented.  This proposal
had raised formidable logistic problems which had not been fully
overcome.  A number of departments had made provision for ambulatory
teaching but it had not been fully implemented.
The Dean stated that one of the major reasons for the problems
that had arisen was that no-one with jurisdiction over the academic
part of the programme had been accessible to students.  In order 5725.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Business arising from the Minutes
Report by the Dean of Medicine on Fourth Year Clinical Clerkship
(continued)
to rectify this situation it was his intention to recommend the
appointment of someone on a part-time basis with an on-going
responsibility for the Fourth Year programme.
Commenting on Recommendation 8 the Dean stated that the
timing of this programme within a 53 week base had proved very
difficult.  Students involved in the programming agreed that
54 weeks would be more easily manageable.  The curriculum
committee had approved this as a proposal but it had not yet
been approved by the Faculty.
On the question of the pay of the Clinical Clerks the Dean
said he would support a procedure whereby the clerks would be
paid through the Faculty of Medicine and not by individual
hospitals.  He had had communications with the Minister concerned
regarding this matter but so far had no indication of the
disposition of the problem.
The Dean commented briefly on other aspects of the report.
In the following discussion it was pointed out that only
Recommendation 8 had been approved by the Faculty of Medicine.
It was explained that different departments had raised specific
problems regarding the implementation of the other recommendations
and the Faculty had therefore referred these back to the departments
with the understanding that they would come forward again for 5726.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972,
Business arising from the Minutes
Report by the Dean of Medicine on Fourth Year Clinical Clerkship
(continued)
further consideration.  It was pointed out, however, that some
recommendations had already been implemented.
The Chairman thanked Dean Bates for the progress report.
Notice of motion by Mr. A. R. Robbins
Notice of motion was given at the previous meeting by
Mr. Robbins.  Mr. Robbins spoke briefly to the motion.
Mr. Robbins  )   That studznts taking a hirst dzgrzz
Mr. Andreone  )    at Thz University oh  British Columbia
bz required to demonstratz university
level knowledge in Canadian history
and politics, which might bz shown by
succzsshul completion oh relzvant coursz
work or passing zxaminations specially
crzatzd h°i this purposz.
It was felt that the proposal was commendable in that people
in Canada ought to know something about Canadian heritage.  However,
most members thought that this was something that should be required
at a lower level of education.  It was generally agreed that no good
would come from compelling students to take a course or courses that
might well be outside their academic interests.
Following a brief debate the motion was put and lost.
Procedure for handling Category B curriculum items (i.e. minor
changes) (P.5695)
The following statement had been circulated in response to a
request for information concerning how Category B items were handled. 5727.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Business arising from the Minutes
Procedure for handling Category B curriculum items (i.e. minor
changes)  (continued)
"As a result of a resolution of Senate dated 18th May, 1971,
all course submissions of faculties were required to be placed in
one of two categories by the faculties:
"Category A:  Proposals for new courses and substantive
changes in new courses, especially those involving more
than one department or faculty,
"Category B:  Proposals involving routine and minor changes:
e.g., changes in credit, teaching hours, teaching methods
(lecture, seminar, lab., etc.), minor changes in wording
of the title or course description, agreed minor changes
involving more than one department or faculty.
"At the same time, Senate agreed that, considering the
substantive changes that might be made as a result of accumulated
changes in course description, title, hours, etc., the Senate
Curriculum Committee could and should be empowered to transfer
items from Category B to Category A, if, in their judgment the
changes were indeed important. Until recently this function has
been exercised by the Senate Curriculum Committee at the time at
which presentations were first made to Senate.  Senate then agreed
to all Category B items without further enquiry, but sent to the
Senate Curriculum Committee all Category A items, and such
Category B items as the Committee judged substantive.
"Under the new procedure, the Senate Curriculum Committee
will receive all submissions from faculties before they go to
Senate; they will make their judgments concerning all Category A
items and also all marginal Category B items which they consider
substantive; they will report to Senate on all these items with
their recommendations and will list for the information of Senate
all Category B items. Essentially, therefore, in the case of all
undoubted Category B items, the decision of the faculty will be
the last word."
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations -
subject, where applicable, to the proviso that none of the programmes
be implemented without formal reference to the President and the formal
agreement of the President; and that the Deans and Heads concerned with
new programmes be asked to indicate the space requirements, if any, of
such new programmes.

A query was raised as to the reason why these 300 level courses
were being offered to Graduate students only.  It was explained that
the courses were specifically designed as prerequisite to Graduate
work. 5730.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
The motion was put and carried with the understanding that the
Curriculum Committee would look into the matter of permitting undergraduate students to take these courses.
Two Category B items submitted by the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration are outlined in the Appendix for information.
Dr. Norris )    That Psychology 100 or its zquivalznt

It was explained that this proposal was an attempt to reduce
the number of units required of a student during the First Year in
Dental Hygiene.
It was pointed out that a student taking the prerequisite year
in the Faculty of Science would have to take 18 units since there
are specific course requirements for all First Year students in this
Faculty.
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried with
the understanding that Dr. Finnegan and Dean Leung would attempt to
solve the problem concerning students registering in the Faculty of
Science.
New Programmes Committee
Proposal of the Faculty of Graduate Studies to offer a Ph.D.
Programme in Art History through the Department of Fine Arts
Dr. Gray presented the report which had been circulated. 5731.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
New Programmes Committee
Proposal of the Faculty of Graduate Studies to offer a Ph.D.
Programme in Art History through the Department of Fine Arts
(continued)
The following points were outlined:-
1. It seemed clear that the field of Art History was a legitimate
disciplinary area and of sufficient substance to warrant a
Ph.D. programme.
2. There seemed to be a clear need for such a programme at U.B.C.
and in Canada. Only two other Canadian Universities, McGill
and Toronto, offered a Ph.D. in Art History. The former was
in an initial stage and Toronto had apparently graduated only
two Ph.D.s from its programme.
3. The faculty in the Department of Fine Arts at U.B.C. presently
included five members holding a Ph.D. While a larger number
of instructors holding a doctorate might be desirable, it
was the committee's view that the Department's 11 years of
experience with the M.A. in Art History rendered it
academically ready to offer a Ph.D. The New Programmes
Committee concurred with the view of the Faculty of Graduate
Studies review committee that the Department's greatest
strength was in the area of Italian Art.
4. While little documentation was provided, the New Programmes
Committee was persuaded that for the present, adequate liaison
had been established with interested related departments.
However, the New Programmes Committee suggested that the
Department of Fine Arts entertain further consultations
with such other interested departments as Asian Studies,
Anthropology and possibly History before extending its Ph.D.
programmes to include Asian Art History and pre-Columbian
North American Art History.
5. The procedures for accepting Ph.D. candidates had been
carefully thought out and were commendable.
6. The report of the University Librarian indicated the
existence of adequate resources for the present.  However,
the Graduate Faculty's review committee estimated that an
additional library appropriation of from $7,000 to $12,000
per annum would be desirable as the Ph.D. programme developed. 5732.
Wednesday, December 13, 1972.
Reports of Committees of Senate
New Programmes Committee
Proposal of the Faculty of Graduate Studies to offer a Ph.D.
Programme in Art History through the Department of Fine Arts
(continued)
7. The salary of additional faculty needed to sustain the Ph.D.
programme was estimated to be approximately $8,000. Other
facilities appeared to be adequate and should require no
additional expenditures.
8. The programme could begin modestly at an early date but
did not demand a high priority position. The programme's
development and extension should occur with due consideration
given to probable additional costs.
Dr. Gray    )  That Senate approve the proposal oh
Dr. Hardwick )   thz Faculty oh Graduatz Studies to
ohher a Ph.d. Programmz in Art History;
that this programmz should commence in
thz {field oh Italian Art History and
that zxtznsion to thz hields oh Asian
and North American Art History bz madz
in consultation with appropriatz
interested related departmznts.
During the discussion attention was drawn to the proposal
originally circulated to Senate in which there had been no
mention of extending the offerings to the other areas suggested
in the motion.
It was explained that during the committee's consideration
of this proposal it had been made clear that the Faculty of
Graduate Studies had felt that the Department of Fine Arts was
competent to offer the Ph.D. degree in the three fields in which
it had expressed interest.
After further debate it was agreed that the motion be
withdrawn and that the following motion be substituted:- 5733.

A member of Senate made an appeal to the Dean of the
Faculty of Arts to make "every reasonable effort" to provide
the Department with funds necessary to permit the offering of
the programme.
Proposed Baccalaureate Programme in Nursing
In the report circulated to Senate the following points
were made:-
"1.  The proposed programme has been conceived in response to
growing changes in health delivery systems in society which
demand a more broadly based nursing programme - one that
will contain a general liberal education component,
provision for the development of data collection, analysis
and interpretation skills, as well as appropriate clinical
experience.
2. The programme has been shortened to four years by utilizing
two Summer Sessions and through the development of a number
of courses which integrate clinical experience with research
and study. ,
/5,3
3. One new course is proposed, Zoology !G$, which provides for
the integration of basic knowledge from the biological
sciences.  Revision of Nursing 112 will provide for a
similar type of integration from the behavioural sciences.
4. A continuing programme of evaluation is planned which, along
with other considerations will be concerned with:
(a) maintenance of a proper balance between clinical and
academic content, and
(b) maintenance of a proper balance between biological and
behavioural/social sciences components of the programme. 5734.

"5.  The proposed programme has received the approval of the
Faculty of Applied Science as well as the related departments
in the fields of biological and behavioural sciences.
6.  The New Programmes Committee believes the proposed programme
gives great promise of training members of the Nursing
profession to function at increasingly higher levels of
professional competence."

Dr. Hardwick    )       Baccalaurzatz Programmz in Nursing.
Attention was drawn to the fact that there were very few
Science courses in the proposal.  It was explained that the
Science content was integrated in the proposed new Zoology
course, the Pathology course and in the Clinical Nursing courses.
In response to a suggestion that the number of hours of
work required in the Summer Session was perhaps a little
excessive for six units of credit, the Director of the School
of Nursing explained that it was difficult to equate units to
clinical work in the same way as to regular course work.
There was considerable discussion concerning the proposed
courses.  It was pointed out that the Senate Curriculum Committee
would shortly be examining the courses.

regarding the academic content of the programme.

programme be started in order to improve the articulation
between the nursing programmes of the two-year colleges and
the university programmes.

principle the motion was put and carried.
