Report of the Senate Nominating Committee
Dr. Stager, Chairman of the Senate Nominating Committee, presented the
committee's recommendations for membership on the various committees of Senate.
Dr. Stager reported that wherever possible the committee had tried to preserve
continuity in the membership of the committees and also, where possible, the
committee had applied the rule that members not be asked to serve on more than two
committees.
It was noted that the names of three of the four Lieutenant-Governor appointees
to Senate were not yet known and that it would therefore be necessary for the
Nominating Committee to submit additional recommendations at a later date.
The committee had also considered a request that student representation on the
Senate Budget Committee be increased to two student senators but in view of the fact
that the Senate Budget Committee was a small committee it was felt that one student
senator would be adequate.
Dr. Stager   ) That    the    recommendations    of    the   Nominating
Dr. Bourne  ) Committee be approved.
Mr. Armstrong, student senator, stated that the request concerning student
membership on the Senate Budget Committee had inadvertently been forwarded to the
Nominating Committee instead of Senate. Under the circumstances the Chairman ruled
that Mr. Armstrong could move a motion concerning this item after the report of the
Nominating Committee had been discussed.
Following a brief discussion the motion concerning the recommendations of the
Nominating Committee was put and carried.
Mr. Armstrong )    That student representation on the Senate Budget
Mr. Warren       )    Committee be increased to two student senators.

Faculty of Graduate Studies
Review procedures for administrative units in the Faculty of Graduate Studies
Dean Larkin explained that, in accordance with the policy statement on
departmental reviews adopted by Senate in September 1977, the Faculty of Graduate
Studies had submitted the following proposal concerning review procedures for
administrative units:-
"I. Reviews of Administrative Units in the Faculty of Graduate Studies should be
guided by the recommendations of the Report of the Senate Committee on
Departmental Review Policy which was approved by Senate in September, 1977.
2. Reviews will normally be undertaken at intervals of five years. The Dean may
require a review at any time and may waive the requirement for a five-year
review if circumstances suggest that this is appropriate. A review must be
undertaken at least every ten years.
3. A review may be initiated at the request of the academic staff involved, the
Director, the Dean or the Senate, but in all cases the Dean is responsible for the
establishment of the review committee and receives its report.
4. The review committee should have three to five members, of which at least two
should be external to the University.
5. The terms of reference of the review committee are to be prepared in writing by
the Dean, in consultation with the Director of the administrative unit. The
terms of reference will focus mainly on the academic strength and balance of the
unit, but may also explicitly include issues of administration and finance.
6. Prior to a review, the Director of an administrative unit should prepare an
internal review document, with a statement of objectives, which is to be
available to the review committee. In the preparation of this document, faculty
and graduate student reviews should be solicited.
7. Institutes, Schools and Centres are encouraged to undertake continuing review
procedures such as are facilitated by annual reports, the seeking of external
advice from councils, visiting academics and so on.
8. The report of the review committee is to be made available to the academic
staff of the unit, subject to the deletion by the Dean, on the advice of legal
counsel, with respect to any material that may be defamatory or of other legal
consequence, or that might be considered an invasion of privacy.
9. The Senate should be advised of reviews being undertaken and a copy of each
review committee's report, subject to the provisions of #8 above, will be
deposited with the Secretary of Senate and made available for examination by
Senators."
Dean Larkin   )      That     the     policy     on     review     procedures     for
Dr. Richards  )      administrative   units   in   the   Faculty  of   Graduate
Studies be approved.
Carried 7020.
Wednesday,  May 24,   1978.
Faculty of Graduate Studies  (continued)
Off-campus graduate courses for credit toward the Degree of Master of Education
It was explained in the proposal circulated to Senate that the Faculty of
Education had proposed that students proceeding to the Master of Education degree
may obtain credit for a limited number of units for graduate courses offered at
off-campus locations. It was stated that although such an off-campus component of
M.Ed, programs was not uncommon at other universities The University of British
Columbia had no such experience.
It was pointed out in the proposal that there were many circumstances under
which it was especially appropriate that M.Ed, students should pursue the
applicational phase of their program at an off-campus location, where theory may be
applied to real and immediate problems as well as to simulated ones. The
theoretical-conceptual part of the program was thought to be best pursued on
campus.
After the proposal had been approved in principle by the Executive Committee of
the Faculty of Graduate Studies, the Dean of the Faculty of Education and the Dean
of the Faculty of Graduate Studies jointly agreed that before the proposal was
brought to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Senate for approval, it would be
useful to have a trial period of two years to provide experience on which to base a
detailed proposal. The Agenda Committee, however, recommended that the proposal
be debated and voted on by Senate.
It was proposed that during the two-year trial period, students in the Master of
Education programs would receive up to 6 units of credit for off-campus graduate
courses provided that:-
1. the student will have the recommendation of the Faculty of Education to pursue
the proposed courses off-campus;
2. the student will normally have first completed on campus at least 6 units of his
or her program;
3. graduate courses proposed for off-campus offering satisfy the normal
expectations of the University, namely, qualified instructor (normally a regular
member of faculty), lecture/discussion/supervision to the extent required by the
unit value of the course, and provision (by transportation if necessary) of
resource materials required;
4. before approval for credit toward an M.Ed, program, the Dean of Graduate
Studies is satisfied that the course is of a type which lends itself to the
application of theory to practice in a practical situation. (Examples of such
courses are: Education 561 (Laboratory Practicum), 580 (Investigation and
Report of a Problem), and 598 (Field Experience)). 7021.
Wednesday,  May 24,   1978.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Off-campus graduate courses for credit toward the Degree of Master of Education

Dean Larkin      )   That in accordance with the provisions outlined, and

Education  programs  will  receive up to 6 units of
credit for off-campus graduate courses.

IN MEMORIAM
LEON JOHNSON LADNER
Leon Johnson Ladner, a dedicated friend and servant of The University of British
Columbia, died on April 12th, 1978, at the age of ninety-three. Born in Ladner, B.C.,
a community named after his father and his uncle, Leon Ladner went to school there
and in New Westminster. After completing the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of
Laws degrees at the University of Toronto, he was admitted to the Bar in 1910, and
began the practice of  law in Vancouver two years later.    He was the founder of Report of the Tributes Committee
Memorial Minute  (continued)
7033.
Wednesday,  May 24,   1978.
Ladner, Downs, one of Vancouver's largest law firms.   In 1921 he was elected to the
House of Commons, and continued as a sitting member until 1930.
He was associated with The University of British Columbia from its very
beginning, being one of the founding members of Convocation, which took place in
Victoria in 1912. It was he who, in May 1921, moved the resolution urging the
establishment of the University at West Point Grey. In 1955 he was appointed to the
Senate of the University where he served as a member until 1961. In 1957 the Senate
elected him to the Board of Governors. In recognition of his contribution and ability,
Leon Ladner was reappointed by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council in 1963; he
retired from the Board in 1966. For nearly twenty years he was an Honorary Lecturer
in the Faculty of Law.
To further the international aspects of university life, Mr. Ladner took a leading
part in inducing the Rotary Club to establish International House as its primary
object, and he became Chairman of the Finance Committee which raised nearly all of
the money for the construction of International House.
He donated the Ladner Carillon and Clock Tower to The University of British
Columbia in honour of this province's pioneers, and he also established several
Foundations to provide annual scholarships for its worthy students.
As a man who throughout his life made distinguished contributions to his country,
his province and to this University, The University of British Columbia conferred upon
Leon Ladner the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, in 1967. In his response,
Dr. Ladner spoke of the importance of education. He considered it to be the greatest
force in modern society for the advancement of the happiness and welfare of the
people, and he believed no objective in life more worthy and more beneficial to one's
fellow citizens than active participation in extending and enlarging the field of
education.
Dr. Ladner was predeceased by his wife, Jeanne Lantzius. He is survived by three
daughters, Helen Tolmie, Yvonne Killam and Beatrice Pottinger; one son Thomas;
twenty grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren; to whom the Senate extends
its sympathy on behalf of the academic community.

Mrs. Fulton  )        minutes of Senate and that a copy be sent to the
relatives of the deceased.
Carried 7034.
Wednesday,  May 24,   1978.
Report of the Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing
Dr. Moyls presented the annual report concerning the activities of the committee.
Dr. Moyls reported that during the past Winter Session 1977-78 the committee had
considered seven appeals from students; all were concerned with the student's standing
in a course or a program. Three of the appeals were from graduate students who had
already appealed to the Dean of Graduate Studies and had been denied. In each of these
cases the student had been asked to withdraw from a Master's program; in one case for
being unsuccessful in a course, in a second case for failing a Master's thesis, and in the
third case for failing in a substantial portion of the program. In all but one appeal the
student was being denied the chance to proceed in a program because of his/her failure.
In three cases the program involved was outside the department against which the
appeal was made.
In six of the seven cases the committee denied the appeal. In the seventh case it
granted the appeal with a qualification. The decisions rendered by the committee
tended to be unanimous more often than in previous years. The appellants were
sometimes represented by friends, legal aid or legal counsel. The appeals were usually
lengthy and the committee did not always find the decisions easy or obvious. There
were usually emotional overtones, arguments for compassion, questions of academic
judgement and illness. The committee was concerned that procedures were properly
and reasonably carried out, and that in the circumstances in which they found
themselves the students had been dealt a measure of natural justice. The committee
members frequently found themselves sympathetic to the human conditions in which the
students found themselves. On occasion the committee did make specific suggestions to
the departments concerning ways in which they might be a little more helpful to
students.
Dr. Moyls paid tribute to committee members and the Registrar for their
assistance.
The meeting adjourned at 9.00 p.m.
The next regular meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 13, 1978.
