Licentiate in Accounting program - change to admission reguirements
The committee recommended approval of a proposal by the Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration that students be required to have
completed at least three units of university level Mathematics. It was explained
in the material circulated that rather than strongly recommending that students
complete at least one year of university level Mathematics before beginning their
studies, the Faculty requested that this be made a requirement.

(b) The grade attained is at least 40%.
(c) The overall average for the year including the failed courses is at
least 60%
2. Notwithstanding eligibility under I, supplemental examination will not
be granted if:
(a) The failure is due to a substandard performance in the laboratory
part of a course.
(b) In Departments outside Forestry, supplementals are not offered.
3. In  no case shall  supplemental examination privileges be granted in
more than 2 courses or more than 4fe units, whichever is the lower.

Limitation of enrolment in First Year
The following proposal concerning limitation of enrolment in First Year had
been circulated:
"Recommendations:
1. That for the 1984-85 Winter Session enrolment of new students in the first
year of degree programs be limited to approximately 3,250 students.
2. That the approximately 3,250 students be selected in descending order of
academic achievement on fhe relevant subjects of senior secondary school.
3. That the principle of enrolment limitation and the number of new students
to be admitted be reviewed annually in the light of resources available to
the University.
4. That the Faculties which admit students to first year be requested to
provide the Senate Admissions Committee with the maximum number of new
first year students that can be accommodated in each first year degree
program.  These numbers to be made available by February 10, 1984.
Background:
In 1981-82 there were 3,179 new students enrolled in the first year of degree
programs. This number increased by 2.8% to 3,270 in 1982-83. In 1983-84 the
number increased by 13.5% to 3,697. At the same time the University's financial
resources have been decreasing. It is clear that in 1984-85 the University will be
facing a severe shortage of financial resources.
The Senate Admissions Committee feels that without adequate funding the
University can no longer admit all applicants to first year who meet the minimum
entrance requirements and at the same time maintain the quality of education
that has been provided in the past.
In view of the fact that the unexpected increase in enrolment of new first year
students in September 1983 musf be accommodated through to completion of
degree programs, it is felt that there must be limits on the major source of intake
of new students. By limiting enrolment of new first year students to a level
approximating the enrolment in Winter Session 1982-83 it is expected that total
enrolment will remain static.
The Senate Admissions Committee recognizes that enrolment limitations must be
considered for all points of entry (i.e. college and university transfers). However,
the number of students entering at points other than first year has remained
constant over the past three years and there is no reason to expect any dramatic
change in 1984. Nonetheless, if there is no improvement in the University's
financial picture consideration will be given to limiting enrolment in higher years. 8116.
Wednesday,  January  18,   1984.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Limitation of enrolment in First Year  (continued)
"For the information of Senate, in 1969 Senate resolved that the University should
have an overall enrolment of 22,000 undergraduate students and 5,500 graduate
students.  Enrolment in 1983-84 is as follows:
Daytime Daytime, Evening & G.I.S.
Undergraduate 22,155 24,292
Graduate 4,020 4,025
Total 26,175 28,317
Dr. Dahlie   ) That     the    recommendations    of    the    Senate
Dr. Adams  ) Admissions  Committee  concerning  limitation  of
enrolment in First Year be approved.
Mrs. Jones queried the rationale for recommending an aggregate limit on
enrolment before the Faculties had reported on the numbers of new first—year
students that can be accommodated, lt was explained that there are pressure
points that have to be considered, such as enrolment in English 100 which requires
an aggregate limit.
Mr. Kendall and some other members of Senate expressed their concern
about selecting students on the basis of their level of achievement in senior
secondary school subjects. Mr. Kendall stated that standards in secondary school
grading are not equal among school districts and in some cases within the school
district and that this would lead to unfair treatment of applicants. He urged
Senate to reject the report and request the Senate Admissions Committee to come
up with a better way of deciding who should be admitted.
Dr. Dahlie acknowledged the difficulties and reminded Senate that the
proposed method of selection was no different than what was being practiced at
the present time.
Dr. Dennison drew Senate's attention to the important implication of the
whole question of access to the University which should be taken into
consideration. In normal times, he stated, there is an understanding that when
universities impose admission limitations, there are other ways that students are
able to enter the system through other institutions. In this case other institutions
in B.C. are having the same problems and are unable to accommodate all those
who may wish to attend. 8117.

who may wish to attend. He expressed his concern that although students who
were refused admission to the University may be able to gain admission to a
college, they would not necessarily be able to enrol for courses because the
colleges register students on a first-come first served basis rather than on the
basis of academic standing. He emphasized the question of access as a very
important one and that he would like to be assured that the best students would be
given the opportunity to enter the system.
The matter of students who are repeating courses and occupying limited
seats was raised while, at the same time, qualified applicants are not being
allowed to enter the University. The question of standards of promotion for
students and whether or not students who fail courses be allowed to repeat them
was a matter of concern. In response Dr. Dahlie stated that the Senate
Admissions Committee had discussed this matter with a view to insisting on very
strict application of regulations with respect to promotion and continuation at the
University.
Miss Dickinson )        That the motion be tabled.
Mr. Waugh ) Losf
Some members of Senate suggested that an alternative scheme would be to
allow all students who meet the minimum qualifications to enter the first year and
apply more rigid standards for continuation into the second year. It was felt that
this would be a more equitable system than one that does not allow access at all.
In rebuttal it was argued that when there is a scarcity of resources we can
no longer consider an open policy but must make the best use of those resources
by admitting those students who can make the best use of them.
In amendment:
Mr. Waugh )      That the following be added to recommendation I:
Mr. S. Williams  )      "... This figure  is to be adjusted after  more  in
depth study has taken place."

Limitation of enrolment in First Year (continued)
Dean Will spoke to the concerns expressed about recommendation 2. He
stated that there was no evidence that students will be discriminated against by
the implementation of enrolment restrictions. He reminded Senate that UBC is
already noted in Canada for having high standards of admission and yet large
numbers of students do not pass in one or two of the five courses in first year.
In response to a query, the Registrar confirmed that the enrolment
limitation proposed would apply to all applicants to first year, not just those from
within the Province of British Columbia.
In speaking to the proposal, Dean Birch supported the recommendation that
there be an aggregate limit. He went on to say that in Faculties with large
enrolment, such as Arts, Science and to a lesser extent Education, students are
free to enrol in courses in each of the other Faculties. For example, students in
first year Education take virtually all their studies in the Faculties of Arts and
Science so that the only way to control first year enrolment is to control on
aggregate rather than individual Faculties alone. He emphasized that the effect
of the motion was not to reduce overall enrolment but to maintain the overall
enrolment at the present level. Finally, speaking to the basis of admission, he
pointed out that on the basis of very extensive studies in this and in other
jurisdictions, there is no better single predictor of University success than high
school grades. That, he said, holds true no matter what admission test an
institution may devise or what admission test it uses. He said that the best
predictor of success from every region in B.C. and every school district in B.C. is
high school grades. He acknowledged the variability in grading but nevertheless
felt that the high school grade is the best predictor available. In an academic
institution, Dean Birch said, there is no reasonable basis for admission other than
academic achievement.
Dr. Benjamin commented that the motion might be stronger if
recommendation 4 were to be deleted and therefore moved that recommendation
4 not form part of the motion.
Dr. Benjamin ) That   recommendation   4   be   deleted   from   the
Dr. Elder        ) motion.

that the committee had looked into this and was satisfied that the proposals did
not constitute a new set of activities; it was simply an attempt to correctly label
current activities. It was the committee's understanding that the concern was
well recognized in the Faculty of Education and was under careful review to
ensure that there will be no unnecessary proliferation of units.

Committee on Student Awards
Mr. McWilliams, Chairman of the committee, presented the following report:
At the September 1983 meeting of Senate, the Committee on Student Awards was
asked to further consider the two matters arising from their report dated
August 1983: namely (I) the definition of "full program" for scholarship purposes and
(2) the distribution of University Scholarships with specific reference to the "150%
Rule".
1. Clarification of Full Program
Although in recent years an increasing number of students have taken advantage
of the flexibility offered by faculties for part-time study, undergraduate
scholarships have generally been restricted to full program students. Since 1981,
the Awards Office has based the definition of full program on a table prepared by
the Registrar's Office, based on the programs approved by individual faculties and
reflected in the Calendar. The table was established by the Registrar's Office to
determine appropriate tuition fee assessments.
In 1982, recognizing that in some faculties as many as 30% of the registered
students were not eligible for scholarships, the Senate, acting on a
recommendation of the Committee on Student Awards, approved in principle, the
extension of the University Scholarship Program to students carrying between 80%
and 99% of a full program. Unfortunately, the expansion of the program was
subject to funding which to date has not been forthcoming.
As a result of its most recent review, the Committee believes that definition of
full program for purposes of undergraduate scholarships should be expanded to
include students who are carrying at least 95% of the normal program load as
defined in the Calendar.
2. Distribution of University Scholarships
The University Scholarship Program was started in 1977/78. The concept was to
ensure that the top students in every year of the undergraduate program in each
faculty or school would receive at least a minimum level of scholarship support
even if no designated scholarship funds were available. In 1979, the newly
established Commit.ee on Student Awards recommended that, on a trial basis, the
150% Rule be implemented. After a two-year trial, the Committee recommended
that it be disconfinued. At that time, the Committee felt that the money spent in
supporting the 150% Rule (+$35,000) could be more effectively used to increase
the top level of the University Scholarship awards from $750 to $950.
When the report of the Committee was considered by Senate in September 1983,
two related issues with financial implications were raised. Senate questioned the
narrow definition of "full program" and also the large number of students who
were excluded from scholarship consideration.
The Awards Office has estimated that the inclusion of students carrying between
95% and 99% of a full program will cost approximately $12,000. Expansion of the
program on a pro-rata basis to students carrying between 80% and 94% of a full
program will cost an addition $50,000. The cost of re-introduction of the 150%
Rule has been estimated at $60,000 at present scholarship levels. Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
8123.
Wednesday,  January  18,   1984.
As a result of a recent discussion with the President, it seems extremely unlikely
that additional operating funds will be available in 1984/85, to support
undergraduate scholarships. Given no additional funds, the 150% Rule can only be
re-introduced at the expense of existing scholarships. If the 150% Rule is reintroduced, the top level of award would have to be reduced from $950 to $750 or
other modifications made to award levels or percentage ranges.
There is no clear concensus within the Committee with respect to the 150% Rule.
Senate will ultimately have to make a decision with respect to the priorities for
change to the University Scholarship Program.
The Committee has reviewed the choices and recommends the following:
(a) Commencing in 1984/85, the definition of full program for purposes of
undergraduate scholarships be expanded to include students who are
registered for at least 95% of a full load as defined in the Calendar. Every
effort will be made to meet the increased cost internally, without any effect
on the overall award value and ranges
(b) Senate re-affirm its decision to extend University Scholarship support, on a
pro-rata basis, to students who are registered for between 80% and 94% of a
full load as defined in the Calendar. (The original recommendation read 80%
to 99%; however, it is being amended to conform with (a) above). This
recommendation is subject to availability of new funding.
(c) In view of the restricted budget combined with the likelihood of significant
fee increases over the next three years, the re-introduction of the 150%
Rule at the expense of the existing program is not appropriate.
Mr. McWilliams )      That recommendations (a) and (b) be approved.
Dr. Ellis )
In reply to a query concerning the cost of including students carrying between 95%
and 99% of a full program, Mr. McWilliams stated that the figure of $12,000 had been
arrived at by analyzing the 1982/83 records.
Concern was expressed that nothing was being done for part-time students. Since
it was almost impossible for students, particularly in the Faculty of Arts, to take 95%
of a full load it was felt that there had been no concession at all.
ln reply to a further query concerning students taking more than the required
number of units for a program in one year but less in the following year, it was
confirmed that for the purposes of eligibility for undergraduate scholarships they
would lose full program status.
It was pointed out that 50% of students in the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration are not eligible for scholarships under either present or proposed
rules.
The motion was put and lost. 8124.

In arguing against the recommendation Dean Lusztig circulated to Senate an
illustration of how the retention of the 150% Rule impacted those Faculties that have
named scholarships available.
After further discussion the motion was put and lost.
Dean Lusztig ) That the Senate Awards Committee be instructed
Dean Burns     ) that   the   "150%   Rule"  pertaining  to  University

Faculty of Graduate Studies
Committee on Science, Technology and Society Studies
The following Calendar statement for a Committee on Science, Technology and
Society Studies had been circulated:
"The many issues raised by the relations among science, technology, and the larger
social context requires combinations of knowledge and expertise not readily
available in any single discipline. The Committee on Science, Technology, and
Society (STS) Sfudies has been established to support and encourage research and
teaching in this important field.
Some examples of issues in the STS area are the development of science and
technology and the capacity to adjust  the roles and ethical  responsibilities of
scientists and technologists; and fhe relations among science, technology, and
other social institutions.
The STS Committee advises students of options in the field of study, may
coordinate and supervise their programs, and, when appropriate, initiate graduate
instruction. Although most students will pursue their studies within disciplinary
departments, the STS Committee is prepared to advise and supervise students in
"Interdisciplinary Studies" when appropriate.
Programs of study leading to Master's and Ph.D. degrees in various aspects of STS
are available in a number of Faculties and Departments. Among these are:
foundational studies in History, Philosophy, or Sociology; cross-cultural studies of
science and technology (as in Anthropology or Asian Studies); Science and
Technology Policy Studies (as in Political Science, Economics, International
Relations, Community and Regional Planning, or Commerce and Business
Administration).
Students wishing to specialize or study in STS should contact the Coordinator for
lists of relevant courses, research projects and faculty members." 8125.

Report of the Senate Budget Committee

Report of the Senate Budget Committee (continued)
"As Senate will realize from the timetable presented at the last meeting, the
various budget reduction submissions from the Faculties will not be complete until
the end of this month. Hence, there is nothing to report on them, although we
note that Vice-President Smith's committee has had some preliminary planning
meetings.
Since the December meeting of Senate, the Senate Budget Committee has
focussed its attention on the tuition fee increase, and it now wishes to report on
the advice that it has given to the President.
As a preamble, the Committee notes that the President announced on
December 6, 1983 that there is a proposal to double the student fee revenue over
the next three years, so that it will constitute 20% of the University net operating
budget in 3 years time. The proposal is that the fee revenue next year will
increase by 33%, and it is anticipated that this would then contribute $6 million to
the potential $18 million shortfall in the operating budget; the other $12 million
is to be obtained by a reduction in the operating budget itself. The proposal is
also that while student fees will increase on average by 33%, so also will student
aid.
The Senate Budget Committee has reviewed the proposal in detail, and while not
happy with the proposed increase, doesn't see much of a choice. Accordingly, at
its meeting on January 16, 1984, it passed the following motion:
"The Senate Budget Committee recognizes the necessity of the increase
in fees that is proposed, and welcomes the effort to rationalize
comparative fee structure."
The latter part of the motion concerns certain changes that are proposed, among
which are the following:
1. Fees should be comparable to those at SFU for the same program.
2. The  fee  differential  by  year currently  incorporated  in certain
undergraduate degree programs will be eliminated.
The Senate Budget Committee has also spent some time debating the proposal
that there should be a differential fee structure for undergraduate visa students.
We note that this will not apply to current visa students, but will apply to new
ones.
It should be noted that the differential fee proposal also contains a section on
student aid. As an aside, it may be observed that currently visa students cannot
qualify for student aid. The proposal is that there will be a student aid program
for visa students paying the differential fees, and that this would amount to 25%
of the extra fee revenue produced by the fee differential.
Our debate was quite wide-ranging. It was noted that the current Admission
policy is that undergraduate visa students are only admitted when a comparable
program is not available in their home country. 8127.
Wednesday,  January  18,   1984.
Other business
Report of the Senate Budqet Committee  (continued)
"We can note that the AUCC submission to the Royal Commission on the Economic
Union and Developmental Prospects for Canada (also known as the Macdonald
Commission), as reported in the January 1984 issue of University Affairs, calls on
the commission to urge the two levels of government to encourage more foreign
students to study in Canada. The AUCC brief says, and I quote "Canada's system
of education cannot help but benefit from continuing contacts with the
international intellectual community" end quote: We have referred back to the
last time this differential fee issue was discussed in Senate.
At its meeting of January 19, 1977 Senate discussed a motion to increase tuition
fees for both non-B.C residents and non-Canada residents. This motion was lost,
and the minutes noted that in the discussion opinions were expressed that it would
be undesirable to discriminate against students from out of province and from
other countries.
Assuming that those are still the views of Senate, there being no information to
the contrary, the Senate Budget Committee on January 16, 1984 passed a second
motion as follows:
"With regard to the proposed differential fee structure for visa students
at the undergraduate level, the SBC, in the spirit of the 1977 Senate
resolution on this matter, does not support the proposal. However, it
recognizes that other factors, both fiscal and political, may have to be
considered in subsequent discussions at the Board of Governors level."
The meeting adjourned at 10.30 p.m.
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, February 15, 1984.

The Nature of Librarianship
Libraries today are a basic resource for formal education at all levels, the
chief means of self-education, indispensable for scholarship and research, a
rewarding recreational facility, and a major channel for the dissemination of
information. The role of librarians is to translate the library's potential into
effective, efficient service by making available a wide range of materials in
all media, by organizing and describing these materials so as to facilitate
their use, by stimulating the use of such materials, and by assisting and
participafing in the many-sided pursuit of information.
Advances in electronic technology and information management provide
opportunities for librarians to work outside the typical library setting.
Planning and developing bibliographic and non-bibliographic data bases and
searching systems, designing and operating library and information networks,
and providing information search services on a free-lance basis are
characteristic of professional functions. Graduates of the School need to
understand and appreciate the application of computer technology to
information management, the ways in which information is communicated to
a variety of user groups, and policies which affect the free flow of
information. APPENDIX B'

b) Required for all students:
Physical Education 202
Physical Education 203
Physical Education 230 (see note (d) below)
Physical Education 250
Physical Education 240 or 241
One course from Team Performance Courses
One course from Individual Performance Courses
These required Performance courses may be taken in any of the four years,
but it is strongly recommended that they be taken in the first two years.
c) A student may not apply more than fifteen (15) units in Performance
Courses toward the BPE Degree.
d) All students must be able to swim. Students who have achieved the Senior
Red Cross Award, Bronze Medallion, or the equivalent, may substitute
another Performance Course for Physical Education 230 with approval from
the Chairman of the Aquatic Courses Committee.
2. Non-Phed Electives - Students must elect a second area of concentration normally
consisting of a minimum of six units in the First and Second Years, and nine units
(numbered 300 or higher) normally offered in the Third and Fourth Years of the
Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration. Students who plan to obtain teacher certification should
choose their courses so as to satisfy the requirements for admission to the
one-year Faculty of Education program for University graduates. Students must
consult the appropriate Department in the Faculty of Education. Education
courses may be credited toward the BPE degree only on prior written approval by
the Senior Faculty Advisor. Education courses which are required in a second area
of concentration may be taken without prior approval.
Recreation  courses  may  be  included  as electives  in the category of Physical
Education Theory on approval of the Senior Faculty Advisor.
3. Both upper-level Phed Theory requirements (two of Phed 363, 384, 463, 468) may
be taken in Third Year, thus decreasing Phed theory elective units in Third Year
to 3 units, and increasing Phed theory electives units in Fourth Year to 4fe - 7fe.
4. Students intending to enter graduate studies should take Physical Education 371
and should discuss their total undergraduate programs with the Chairman of the

Program changes - change Calendar statement to:
The Department offers opportunities for study leading to bachelor's, master's and
doctoral degrees. For information on the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree programs, see
the Faculty of Graduate Studies section of the calendar.
There are two separate options leading to a B.Sc. degree within the Biochemistry
program; one emphasizes the metabolic and structural aspects of Biochemistry
(Option A) and the other emphasizes the genetic and molecular biological aspects
of Biochemistry (Option B). Both Major options provide a strong background in
Biochemistry and both are sufficiently flexible for students to develop their
interests in allied fields (e.g., microbiology, food science, chemistry, etc.). Either
Major option is appropriate for students who anticipate a professional career in
the Health Sciences.
Either of the two Honours options is the recommended route for students
interested in graduate studies in Biochemistry or related disciplines. However,
students enrolled in a Major program with a strong academic record may also
apply for graduate studies.
