Business arising from the Minutes
Statistics 105 and 303  (p.9630)
Dr. Thompson reminded Senate that at the previous meeting Dean Lusztig
had expressed concern at the proposed deletion of Statistics 105 and 303,
and that approval of these deletions had been postponed pending further
information.
Dr. Thompson stated that he had subsequently consulted the Department of
Statistics and had been informed that Statistics 105 is a course that has
had an enrolment of approximately 50 students, 70% of whom are from
Science and would be better served by courses in statistics designed for
Science, particularly Statistics 200. It was felt that the other 30%
could take Statistics 203, or, if they had the Mathematics prerequisites,
they could take Statistics 200. With regard to Statistics 303, he stated
that there is an added problem in that, at the moment, students from
Faculties other than Science can take Statistics 203 for 1.5 units and, at
least on paper, Statistics 303 for an additional 1.5 units if they wish.
However, the Department has had difficulty creating interest in the
course, and the last time the course was offered only 4 students
enrolled. Therefore it has not been offered in the past two years.
Apparently there have been no complaints, so on this basis they requested
that the course be deleted. In conclusion, Dr. Thompson stated that he
had contacted the various Schools and Faculties and that no-one was
opposed to these deletions. The Curriculum Committee therefore
recommended approval of the proposed deletions.
Dr. Thompson  )  That the deletion of Statistics 105 and 303
Dr. Sobrino   )  be approved.
Carried 9657.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Dr. Elder, Chairman of the Committee, presented the report on Calendar
changes, enrolment quotas, and information on appeals and NITEP academic
results.
Change in Admission Criteria for International Undergraduate Applicants
The committee recommended changing the Calendar statement on academic
standing under International Applicants, to the following: Academic
Standing:  Superior academic standing is required for admission. 9658.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Change in Admission Criteria for International Undergraduate Applicants
(continued)
Dr. Elder explained that the Admissions Committee felt that the
current g.p.a. of 3.5 is too high.  In 1988, 906 international students
applied for admission and 234 were accepted.  In 1989, of the 1,112
international students who applied, 202 were accepted and only 141 were
registered  in  November,  1989.   It  seemed  to  the  Committee  that
international students whose g.p.a's were over 3.0, some of whom had
achieved those averages in our own high schools, should be admitted to
UBC.
Dr. Vanderstoep expressed concern that the term "superior academic
standing" was being recommended without a definition of what that meant,
particularly in view of the fact that international students often ask
for information on the standing required for admission to UBC.
Dr. Elder responded that while the Committee felt that the g.p.a of
3.5 was too rigid, it was not the intention that international students
would be admitted with a g.p.a. of less than 3.1 or 3.2. In response to
other concerns Dr. Elder stated that the Admissions Officers were well
aware of the intention of Senate, which is to admit only superior
international students and not to displace any Canadian students.
Dr. Elder     )  That the Calendar statement on academic
Dr. Sobrino   )  standing under International Applicants, be
changed to the following: Academic Standing:
Superior academic standing is required for
admission.
Carried 9659.
January 17, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee  (continued)
Change in Calendar Statement on Unclassified Students
In presenting the proposed change in the Calendar statement on
Unclassified  Students,  Dr.  Elder  explained  that  in  general  an
unclassified student is a student who already has a degree and is
allowed to enrol in whatever courses the student wishes.  However,
students without degrees can be admitted as Unclassified Students.
Those students fall into two general categories, one being students who
have been allowed to enrol in order to take some upgrading for specific
programs at the University, and the other, students who were admitted
with a 2.0 g.p.a. but who were not admissible to any Faculty because of
the quota limitations on the Faculties of Arts and Science.  There were
30 of this latter category in November 1989.  It seemed to the
Admissions Committee that those students were being admitted into an
unclassified status from which they would subsequently transfer into
Second Year Arts in particular.  Therefore, since the Committee wished
to prevent that from happening, the following limitations were being
recommended on this category of students:
"Unclassified students should normally have a recognized degree.
Students without a degree who are eligible for admission to the
university may be admitted as unclassified students (a) to allow them to
take a limited number of courses in a specific area to upgrade or
achieve a qualification, or (b) when they are not admissible to or do
not wish to enter a specific program. Students in category (b) may take
no more than 6 units per academic year and no more than 9 units in total
while registered as unclassified. Admission as an unclassified student
does not guarantee that a student will be able to register for any
course offered. Unclassified students may only register in a course
with the permission of the Faculty giving the course. Admission as an
unclassified student does not imply future admission as a regular
student.
Unclassified students will not receive transfer credit since they are
not in a program to which credit can be transferred. Students with a
failed year in a Faculty will not be admitted as unclassified until they
have discontinued their studies for at least one year. After a second
failed year admission as unclassified will be subject to the approval of
the Senate Admissions Committee." 9660.
January 17, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Change in Calendar Statement on Unclassified Students  (continued)
Dr. Elder     )  That the proposed change in the Calendar
Dr. Cook      )  statement on Unclassified Students be
approved.
Carried
Faculty of Dentistry Admission Requirements
The Committee recommended approval of a proposal by the Faculty of
Dentistry to replace the existing Calendar entry on the General Practice
Residency Program admission requirements with the following: "Graduates
of any accredited Canadian dental school are eligible for admission.
All candidates must satisfy the requirements for registration of the
College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. Graduates of foreign dental schools
must posses a current and valid certificate from the National Dental
Examining Board of Canada."
It was stated in the material circulated that the wording of the
current Calendar statement implied that graduates of U.S. dental schools
held an advantage over other foreign dentists in that they need not hold
a current NDEB certificate, which is not the case since they must obtain
an NDEB certificate in order to qualify for admission to the GPR program.
Dr. Elder     ) That the revised Calendar entry on
Dean Robertson )  the General Practice Residency Program
admission requirements be approved.

Dr. Tees drew Senate's attention to the fact that the Academic Policy
Committee had been approached by the Dean of Graduate Studies in the
fall in connection with appeals to the Senate Admissions Committee by
Graduate students, and that he had written to Dr. Elder saying that it
was quite clear from the Committee's terms of reference that it fell
within its jurisdiction to rule on such appeals. However, he had also
suggested that the Committee might wish to review its procedures, terms
of reference, membership etc. , to see if there are any changes that it
would recommend.
Dr. Elder confirmed that the Committee would be happy to review its
procedures and terms of reference and report back to Senate.
Dean Suedfeld suggested that it would useful if the report could
contain the Committee's current procedures, the conditions under which
decisions on admissions that are appealed are considered, what the
conditions are for changing or reversing the decision of a Faculty
appeals committee, and what procedures an appellant has to go through
within the Faculties and the Registrar's Office before reaching the
Senate Committee. 9663.

1988 NITEP Admissions Academic Results
The following report on NITEP Admissions Academic Results had been
circulated for information:
1. The University admitted 43 applicants to NITEP, 41 of whom
registered. All but ten continued in September 1989. Reasons given
for those not continuing were: lack of academic success; change of
career choice; personal problems.
2. A breakdown of the students' average shows that:
9 students achieved lst class standing
19 students achieved 2nd class standing
6 students achieve pass standing
5 students failed
2 students withdrew.
3. Of the 41 students, 39 completed all UBC courses which they attempted.
4. Collectively the group attempted 200.5 units and completed 172.0 units
Appeals on Academic Standing
Grading practices - scaling of marks
Dr. Hickling, Chairman of the Committee, presented the following
report:
"The Senate Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing in its report
to Senate dated April 5, 1989, recommended that the Calendar entry
headed Grading Practices be revised to draw attention to the fact
that Faculties, Departments and Schools reserve the right to scale
marks.
The committee recommends that the following paragraph be added to the
Calendar, in the section on Grading Practices (page 22 of the 1989/90
Calendar), after the present second paragraph:
Faculties, Departments and Schools reserve the right to scale grades
in order to maintain equity among sections and conformity to
University, Faculty, Department or School norms. Students should
therefore note that an unofficial grade given by an instructor might
be changed by the Faculty, Department or School. Grades are not
official until they appear on a student's transcript." 9664.
January 17, 1990
Reports of Committees of Senate
Appeals on Academic Standing
Grading practices - scaling of marks (continued)
Dr. Hickling explained that this recommendation had arisen out of a
report of the Committee last April. The item in question involved a
student in Science, in an area in which the practice of scaling is
virtually unknown, taking a course in a department in the Faculty of
Arts in which scaling was the standard practice. The Committee ruled
that it was not unfair or improper in the circumstances to apply the
practice of scaling but recommended that an entry be included in the
Calendar to make this clear to other students in a similar position.
Dr. Hickling  )  That the proposed Calendar entry on the
Dr. Sobrino   )  scaling of marks be approved.

Curriculum Committee  (see Appendix)
Dr. Thompson, Chairman of the Committee, presented the report.
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, subject to the following:
LARC 355 - hours should read:  (2-3;0-0)
Faculty of Applied Science
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Applied Science, subject to the following:
APSC 459 - change description to read: "Experimental work on
projects designed to give research development and design experience
with egual time commitment in Engineering and Science. Students are

The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the
Faculty of Arts, subject to the following:
Korean 300 - add prerequisite: Korean 200 or equivalent.
Asian Studies - add rationale for proposed program changes, which
reads: "The new description is intended to consolidate, and apply
the same language to, the three regional options in the Asian Area
Studies major: East, South, and Southeast Asia. It is also intended
to clarify for students the rationale for the existing requirements.
The only changes of substance concern the Southeast Asia option,
where recent improvements in the staffing situation permit two
changes, both in the direction of bringing the Southeast Asia option
into line with the other two regions:
1. A language requirement has been added (Indonesian), analogous to
requirements already in existence for East and South Asia;
2. A course in Southeast Asian history has been moved from the
"humanities" list to a "history" list, paralleling the list format
for the other regions."

Proposal to discontinue the Coal Research Centre
It was noted in the material circulated that the Coal Research Centre
was established by Senate in October 1980 under the following terms of
reference:
1. To facilitate and promote the development of research and graduate
training related to the use of coal.
2. To foster contact with industry and government coal research centres.
3. To supervise the programming of coal research facilities at the
University as they involve university, government, and industry
research programs.
It was also noted that although coal research is being actively pursued
at UBC within various Departments, the Centre no longer operates as an
interdisciplinary centre.  The Faculty of Graduate Studies therefore
recommended that it be discontinued.
Dean Suedfeld  ) That the proposal of the Faculty of
Dean Meisen   )  Graduate Studies that the Coal Research
Centre in the Faculty of Graduate Studies
be discontinued be approved.

Academic Year 1990-91
A draft of the section of the Academic Year 1990-91 for inclusion in the
Calendar had been circulated, together with the following revisions to the
1989-90 Academic Year:
Monday May 28, 1990 - Baccalaureate Service, 8.00 p.m.
(changed from Tuesday, May 29)
Tuesday, May 29, 1990 - Annual Congregation for conferring of degrees,
War Memorial Gymnasium
(additional Congregation ceremony)
Dean Robertson ) That the proposed dates for the
Dr. Gray      ) Academic Year 1990-91, and the
) proposed changes to the 1989-90
) Academic Year be approved.
The Registrar reminded Senate that when Senate considered how to use the
week that was freed up as a result of the introduction of early
registration, the report that Senate considered and adopted recommended that
there be an afternoon in the first week of classes for orientation
activities. In the first two years those activities have included a
ceremony in the War Memorial Gymnasium; at one of those an Honorary Degree
was conferred, and at the second, Certificates were presented to winners of
Entrance Scholarships. The Registrar explained that although there would be
no such ceremony this year it was felt that it would be appropriate to leave
those orientation activities as scheduled, since it was always intended that
Departments and Faculties could use that time. He noted, however, that
there would be a ceremony on September 27 in connection with the 75th
Anniverary activities.
The Registrar drew attention to a proposal for a Convocation in November
at which the degrees that Senate confers at the November Senate meeting will
be presented.  He also pointed out that when Remembrance Day falls on the 9669.
January 17, 1990
Academic Year 1990-91  (continued)
weekend the University would normally close on the Monday. However, a
recommendation had been received to move it to the Friday because it
balanced out much better the days that are lost through holidays. Instead
of losing a number of Mondays, it reduced by one the number of days on which
that happens.
Dean Suedfeld drew attention to the date given for the Special 75th
Anniversay Congregation. He stated that it was his understanding that the
date scheduled was November 29, not November 22 as stated in the material
circulated. It was agreed that the Registrar should look into this matter.
(It has subsequently been determined that the correct date is November 29.)
In response to a query about the September 6 orientation activities, the
Registrar stated that classes will be cancelled if the Academic Year is
adopted as circulated but whether or not any particular Department or
Faculty wishes to schedule orientation activities is a matter for their
discretion.
Dr. Elder stated that in the Faculty of Arts it was extremely awkward to
have classes cancelled on the first Thursday of the term since neither
students nor faculty were aware that classes had been cancelled. Dr. Elder
suggested that if a formal ceremony was not going to be held then there was
no reason for the cancellation of lectures and laboratories. She also
suggested that since Senate policy forbids the holding of lectures and
laboratories between 12.30 p.m. to 2.30 p.m. on Thursdays, orientation
ceremonies could be fitted into that time. 9670.
January 17, 1990
Academic Year 1990-91  (continued)
In amendment:
Dr. Elder     )  That, under Thursday, September 6, the
Dean Burns    )  entry "Orientation activities in afternoon.
Lectures and laboratories cancelled after
12.30 p.m." be deleted.
Car r i ed
In response to a guery concerning the payment due date for first
instalment of tuition fees, the Registrar explained that the payment system
used by the University is one in which payment can be made at any branch of
the Bank of Montreal in Canada. He stated that the bank collects a form
along with the payment, those forms are then couriered to the bank's central
data processing office, the information is entered into a computer and it is
transferred to the University on a magnetic tape. This can take two working
days. If the University allows payment to be made on Thursday or Friday, it
is extremely unlikely that all payments will be received by the weekend at
the end of the first week of classes. The University needs to know by that
time who has paid and who has not paid in order that it can remove from the
registration record those students who have not paid and who presumably are
not attending.
The Registrar commented that there had been extensive discussions with a
representative of the Alma Mater Society and a student representative on the
Board of Governors, as a result of which arrangements had been made to
streamline the procedure for granting deferrments to students who have
applied for loans, and to introduce a new procedure which it is hoped, with
the help of the A.M.S., will enable some students to get deferrments in the
first week of classes if they have suffered a financial emergency or have
legitimate reasons for being unable to pay their fees. This procedure should 9671.

address some of the real problems that a few students have encountered with
the payment date.
In response to a further query, the Registrar explained that early
payment is more important in September than in January because there is a
significant number of students who use the early registration system in
September and who, between the time that they use it and reserve a place in
classes, change their plans and do not come to the university.
The motion was put and carried.

Elections Committee
Dr. Tennant presented the following report, which had been circulated at
the meeting.
"The committee is empowered "to hear appeals on election irregularities"
(p.7066 Senate Minutes) and is to report its decisions to Senate for
information. Elections held earlier this month produced three
complaints of irregularities.
1. Election of Student Representatives to a Committee to Advise the
President in Selecting a Dean of Law
Three students asked the committee to declare the election invalid on
the grounds that third year students should not have been allowed to
stand for election and that the election ought not to have been
administered by members of the Law Students Association who were
candidates. 9672.
January 17, 1990
Other business
Elections Committee
1. Election of Student Representatives to a Committee to Advise the
President in Selecting a Dean of Law (continued)
The committee ruled that its jurisdiction pertaining to student
elections is limited to elections to Board and Senate. The committee
notes that the Senate motion on "Procedures on Advisory Committees
for the Selection of Deans" (p.6359) states that "nominations and
elections" of student members are "to be conducted by the
undergraduate society of that faculty in accordance with procedures
considered satisfactory by the Registrar." In the committee's view,
complaints fall within the Registrar's jurisdiction. (In the making
of the committee's decision, the Registrar, who is an ex-officio
member, abstained from voting.)
2. Election of Student Representatives to Board of Governors: complaint
concerning irregular hours of operation of polling stations
Three students complained that polling stations were not open at
regular and consistent times — specifically that the Buchanan and
Sedgewick polls were closed at certain hours when most other polls
were open. The point of the complaint is that candidates normally do
better among voters in their own Faculties, and that candidates from
the Arts Faculty could have suffered disproportionately.
The committee determined that various polling stations were closed at
times due to lack of students willing to work at the polls. This
circumstance is not exceptional; indeed the published advertisements
state that polls will be open "subject to students being available to
run these polling stations." Moreover, the committee determined that
the election results would not have been altered had the Buchanan and
Sedgewick polls been open at all possible times. The committee
therefore took no action on the complaint.
However, the committee does believe that several improvements should
be made in the administration of student elections by the A.M.S.
a) At present the published advertisements state that polls will be
open from 9.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m., even though the actual and
intended practice is to have them open only from 9.30 a.m. to
2.30 p.m. The discrepancy serves no good purpose. Advertisements
should be accurate.
b) While the committee recognizes the difficulties in hiring and
coordinating numerous students in short-term employment as poll
clerks, it suggests that a "back up squad" should be in place
from which fill-ins could be quickly obtained when needed.
c) Consideration could also be given to ensuring that one central
polling station (presumably that in S.U.B.) will indeed be open
at all appropriate times, and that this fact be advertised.
Intending voters thwarted at their regular station would thus
have an alternative. 9673.
January 17, 1990

Elections Committee  (continued)
3. Election of Student Representatives to Board of Governors: complaints
of irregularities at the Engineering polling station
One student complained that a poll clerk wearing a red jacket
expressed his preference for a particular candidate when asked for
advice by a voter. The student also complained that a chalkboard
ditty near the polling station contained the names of two candidates.
The committee agreed that the polling clerk's action constituted an
irregularity, but that it was not of sufficient magnitude to have
affected the outcome. The committee also concluded that the colour
of the jacket was insufficient to establish the motives or the
morality of its wearer. The committee heard evidence that the ditty
was probably in place only on the last day of voting, and concluded
that it could not have greatly affected the outcome at the polling
place. The committee therefore took no action on the complaint."
Dr. Hickling drew attention to the fact that in the first item of the
report, the committee appeared to be suggesting that the Registrar has
jurisdiction to deal with matters relating to the eligibility of students
to stand for and be elected to a committee to advise the President in
selecting a Dean.  He went on to draw attention to the fact that the
agreed procedures under the Senate motion gave the Registrar jurisdiction
to deal with matters of procedure relating to the manner in which
nominations and elections are conducted by the student society involved.
The issue referred to in the first paragraph appeared to relate to a
matter of substance rather than procedure since it dealt with eligibility
to stand for election.  Dr. Hickling felt that if in fact it was the
committee's view that these procedures on advisory committees for the
selection of Deans gave the jurisdiction on matters of substance to the
Registrar, that understanding should be recorded in the minutes.  He also
pointed out that the procedures on these advisory committees were in fact
a joint venture by the Senate and the Board of Governors. 9674.
January 17, 1990
Other business
Elections Committee  (continued)
The Registrar explained that the matter of substantive eligibility of
third year students had been referred to the Vice-President Academic, Dr.
Birch, and that he viewed this as a satisfactory procedure for dealing
with that kind of issue.
Student Awards
Mr. Kaweski noted that the University, under the scholarship program,
currently offers $1,200 minimum support to students finishing in the top
3% of the Faculty and Year, and $900 to students finishing in the next
3%. He stated that on checking through past Awards and Financial Aid
booklets, this level of support had existed when tuition fees were in the
region of $1,275 a year and assumed that it was intended that this amount
would cover tuition fees. Mr. Kaweski stated that since tuition fees
today were around $1,605 it would seem reasonable to increase this level
of support to keep it in line with the increases in tuition, and suggested
that perhaps the Committee on Student Awards could look into this matter.
Dr. Cook, Chairman of the Committee on Student Awards, responded that
the Committee has already put this matter on the agenda for their next
meeting, and has asked Mr. Hender, the Director of Awards and Financial
Aid, to present the Committee with historical statistics over the past
five years as to how the total scholarship funds available to students
standing in the top 3% and 5% of the class have diminished relative to
tuition fees over that number of years. Dr. Cook thanked Mr. Kaweski for
raising this issue. 9675.

Requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Arts
Major in Asian Area Studies
Area of specialization:
Each Asian Area Studies major should choose a regional specialization
within Asia: East Asian, South Asia, or Southeast Asia. Within the
East Asia specialization, three sub-specializations are possible:
China, Japan and Korea.
Students who intend to do graduate work specializing in the Asian field
are encouraged to take at least 9 units in a single discipline (e.g.,
History, Political Science, Geography, Anthropology).
First and Second Years:
Students anticipating a major in Asian Area Studies must complete the
following nine units of prerequisites:
(a) a three-unit introduction to the civilization of the area of
specialization (Asian Studies 105 for East Asia, Asian Studies 115 for
South Asia; Asian Studies 206 for Southeast Asia).
(b) six units of instruction in one of the languages of the area
(Chinese, Japanese, or Korean for East Asia; Hindi, Punjabi, or Sanskrit
for South Asia; Indonesian for Southeast Asia).
While students are urged to take the six units of language during the
first two years, upper-year credit will still be given if they take it
later; that is, Asian Area Studies majors may take 100- and 200-level
Asian language courses as part of their required 2 4 units of upper level
Arts courses. 9681.

Third and Fourth Years
The Major in Asian Area studies requires fifteen units of upper-level
(300-400 level) courses in the third and fourth years. These fifteen
units should be in courses related to the area of specialization: East
Asia, South Asia, or Southeast Asia. Lists of courses approved for each
area are given below, divided into the following three categories:
(a) Humanities (art, language at the advanced level, literature, music,
philosophy, religion);

"M.Eng. (Advanced Technology Management)
This degree is a joint graduate degree between the Faculties of Commerce
and Business Administration and Applied Science. It is intended for
students who wish to continue with graduate study in Applied Science and
also provide themselves with advanced management skills which are
particularly well suited for high technology companies. In contrast to
the M.B.A., this does not purport to give general management expertise,
but is intended to support Applied Science graduates to become more
effective in their chosen technological discipline.
All entrants to the program must hold a Baccalaureate degree in Applied
Science and satisfy the minimum requirements of the Faculties of
Commerce and Business Administration, Applied Science and Graduate
Studies. The program of study is determined by the Program Director in
consultation with advisors from the appropriate Faculties but will
contain at least the following. Nine units of specified Commerce
prerequisites, exemptions being given on a course-by-course basis. Six
units of Graduate Applied Science. Six units of Graduate Commerce. A
summer internship, colloquium participation, and a major essay are
required."
