Statement of Appreciation -
Dr. H. L. Campbell
The Secretary read the following statement of
appreciation, prepared in accordance with the instructions
of Senate at its previous meeting:
After a long and distinguished career in
British Columbia as a teacher and administrator of
teaching, Harold Lane Campbell, LL.D., retired as
Superintendent and Deputy Minister of Education in
June of 1958. This office, to which he succeeded
in 1952, was the fitting crown to an active
professional life as classroom teacher, school
principal and inspector, and as an administrator
in municipal and provincial fields of education.
This varied and intimate experience in many phases
of education underlay all his acts and decisions
during his tenure of office.  He graduated in 1928
from the University of British Columbia with the
degree of Bachelor of Arts; and the University in
1955 recognized his meritorious services in the
cause of education by awarding him the degree of
Doctor of Laws, honoris causa. Dr. Campbell was
a moving force in the establishment of the Faculty
and College of Education on the campus of the
University of British Columbia; and there, as
always elsewhere, the University reaped the benefit
of his best advice and fullest support. The Senate
of the University of British Columbia desires once
again to record its appreciation of his many
achievements.  In recording this appreciation in
the Minutes, Senate also extends to Dr. and Mrs.
Campbell best wishes for all happiness in the
years ahead.

From the Faculties and Schools
Recommendations that
Certain Students be
Required to Withdraw
Before considering the recommendations of the
Faculties that certain students be required to withdraw from
their Faculties, the Chairman brought to the attention of
Senate appeals from two students against recommendations
for withdrawal. Friday, August 29th, 1958      2585
Mr. S. Akintobi
The Secretary read correspondence from Mr. Samuel
Akintobi, whom Senate in October, 1957, had authorized to
repeat the work of First Year Medicine on probation.
Dean Patterson outlined the academic record of Mr.
Akintobi, who in repeating his year had passed only two
subjects and obtained an average of 56%. He pointed out
that the passing mark in the Faculty of Medicine is 60%.
Mr. Akintobi had tried the United States National Board
Medical Examinations, without sponsorship of the University,
and had passed, with the minimum grade, in only one of the
four examinations written. Dean Patterson read from a
letter that he had received from the Director of the
National Board in which the Director stated that "there
was good agreement" between the results of the Board
examinations and the medical school record of Mr. Akintobi.
Dean Patterson had investigated instances of
suspected discrimination against Mr. Akintobi, and had
found no evidence to support such charges.
Dr. Sharp    )
Dean Patterson) That Senate approve the recommendation
of the Faculty of Medicine that Mr.
Samuel Akintobi be required to withdraw from that Faculty.
Carried.
Mr. A. Ernest Alexander
The Secretary read an appeal from Mr. Ernest
Alexander, Second Year Medicine, against the recommendation
of the Faculty that he should be required to withdraw. Friday, August 29th, 1958       2586
Dean Patterson stated that Mr. Alexander had
written and passed one supplemental in First Year Medicine,
but this year he had failed in the two subjects representing
about two-thirds of the work of the Second Year, and his
average was below 60%.
Mr. Nemetz)
Mr. Caple ) That Senate approve the recommendation of
the Faculty of* Medicine that Mr. Ernest
Alexander be required to withdraw from
that Faculty.
Carried.
Other Recommendations

The list of recommendations of the various Faculties
that students be required to withdraw from those Faculties
had been circulated. The Chairman commented that these
recommendations were in accordance with Calendar regulations
approved by Senate.
Dr. Kania )
Mr. Gourlay) That Senate approve the recommendations
of the Faculties and require the students
listed to withdraw from those Faculties.
Carried.
Authorization for Release of
Marks from Summer Session
Dean Soward)
Dean Curtis) That the Registrar, in consultation with
the Chairman of Senate and the Deans of
the Faculties concerned, be authorized
to release the marks from the 1958
Summer Session.
Carried. Friday, August 29th, 1958       2587
Faculty of Arts and Science
Off-campus Courses
The Secretary read the following resolution passed
by the Faculty of Arts and Science:
"That in view of the growing demand for off-campus
courses throughout the province, particularly in
the northern districts, the effectiveness of
correspondence courses be strengthened by periodic
visits of Instructors, or members of the departments
concerned, and that group discussions throughout
the Session be arranged in the courses."
Dean Chant explained that this grew out of a
request from a group of teachers in Prince George for extramural instruction in that area.  The Faculty of Arts and
Science felt that the University should not expand its
offerings in extra-mural courses, but that periodic visits
of instructors to districts with a large enrolment in
correspondence courses (as originally contemplated when
such courses were instituted), and organization of students
in correspondence courses into discussion groups, might
increase the effectiveness of their studies.
Miss Cottingham, representing the teachers of the
Province, urged that all possible steps be taken, without
lowering the standards of the University, to assist teachers
at the secondary level to improve their academic qualifications.
Mr. Caple emphasized the necessity of adjusting
educational methods to the changing conditions and the needs
of the people of the province, particularly the teachers.
Dean Chant  )
Dr. McGregor) That Senate approve in principle the
recommendation of the Faculty of Arts
and Science with respect to visits of
A Friday, August 29th, 1958       2588
Instructors to districts with a large
enrolment in correspondence courses; and
ask the Chairman of Senate to refer this
recommendation to a suitable established
committee, or, if necessary, a special
committee, to consider the means of
putting the recommendation into effect.
Carried.
New Courses and Options
The Secretary read the following recommendations
of the Faculty of Arts and Science with respect to new
courses and new options proposed for introduction in 1958-59:
Geography 410 (3) - The Pacific Northwest - new course,
to replace Geography 408 (Geography of Europe) in the

School of Architecture -
Summer Sketching School
Dean Gunning explained that students entering the
Third, Fourth and Fifth years in the School of Architecture
were required to spend ten days in the Vancouver area on
field work prior to the opening of the First Term.  The
School proposed that once in three years the Sketching
School should be held in a suitable location away from
Vancouver, such as the School of Fine Arts at Banff which
was recommended for the 1958 centre. The cost was estimated
at $40.00 per student, plus travelling expenses. Two members
of Faculty would accompany the group.
Dean Gunning)
Mr. Crouch ) That Senate approve the proposal that
in the years 1958 and 1961 the School
of Architecture Summer Sketching School
be held at the Banff School of Fine Arts
or an alternative suitable location away
from Vancouver, and that this practice
be reviewed subsequent to the 1961
session with regard to its continuance.
Carried.
School of Nursing - Proposed
Agreement with St. Paul's
Hospital
A report by Miss Mallory on proposed changes in
the basic professional curriculum leading to the degree of
Bachelor of Science in Nursing had been distributed at the
meeting. Friday, August 29th, 1958      2590
Dean Gunning described the developments in nursing
training since 1949, when a Senate Committee had been
established to study problems of nursing education. The
Department of Nursing and Health had been reconstituted as
the School of Nursing in 1951. As one step towards the
integration of the entire nursing course, student nurses had
received some of their instruction and guidance in clinical
matters in the Vancouver General Hospital from members of
the University School of Nursing staff.
However, with the increasing enrolment in the
University Nursing course, the Vancouver General Hospital
was finding it impossible to continue to fit University
students, with two years for clinical instruction and
experience, into the programme designed for the Hospital's
three-year students. The Vancouver General Hospital would
provide professional training for the students enrolling
in Second and Third Year Nursing in 1958 (and Third Year
Nursing in 1959), and would continue to give training and
experience to senior students, but would not accept students
now entering their First Year Nursing unless the University
Instructors were withdrawn from the Hospital. Dean Gunning
expressed gratitude for the time the staff of the Vancouver
General Hospital had spent in attempting to work out a
satisfactory programme in collaboration with the University.
St. Paul's Hospital had previously expressed
interest in sharing in the basic degree course in Nursing
(in addition to providing field experience for some of the Friday, August 29th, 1958      2591
senior students, as in the past). The University School of
Nursing had therefore approached St. Paul's Hospital with an
outline of a proposed arrangement for increasing St. Paul's
participation in the University's Nursing programme. A draft
agreement between the two institutions had been approved in
principle by the University Board of Governors and by the
Hospital representatives. The final agreement, based on
this, was submitted by the Council of the School of Nursing
for approval of Senate.
Miss Mallory then commented on the terms of
agreement proposed, pointing out the recognition that the
University student was taking a different programme, and
had a different educational background, from the regular
student nurse of the Hospital; and the privilege granted
the University of placing instructors in the area with
freedom of access to students in clinical areas and classrooms.
For information of Senate, the complete text of
the agreement is recorded as follows:
"1. The University of British Columbia's School of Nursing
and St. Paul's School of Nursing will establish in the
Hospital a programme for students from the University
of British Columbia, in the course of studies leading

(b) The clinical nursing programme - covering a period
of two full years - for Second and Third Year
students.

students placed for experience during all or any
part of January, May and June. Friday, August 29th, 1958       2592

students in "Clinical Teaching and Supervision",
placed during all or any part of January, May and
June.

selected clinical areas in its premises and at such
reasonable times as may be integrated with hospital

the implementation of the said co-operatively planned
clinical nursing programme.
4. The University will be responsible for the curriculum
and St. Paul's School of Nursing instructors will be
encouraged to participate in the planning, implementation
and evaluation of it.
5. The University instructors assigned by the University
to the clinical nursing programme provided at St. Paul's
Hospital will have access at all reasonable times to
students in both (a) formal classroom situations and
(b) the clinical areas in which students will be

6. The University will give honourary appointment in its
School of Nursing to all members of the staff of
St. Paul*s School of Nursing regularly engaged in the
formal teaching programme for students from the
University of British Columbia School of Nursing.
Such appointments may be terminated by the University
at its discretion.
7. The University will offer two bursaries in each year
during the term of this Agreement to St. Paul's School
of Nursing, each to the amount of student fees for one
year in the University School of Nursing for two
graduate nurses.
8. The staff of the University School of Nursing will, on
request of the Hospital, be available to assist with
the St. Paul's School programme to such an extent as
may be reasonably possible taking into consideration
their duties under the University programme.
A Friday, August 29th, 1958      2593
9. The University will be responsible for obtaining for its
nursing students "Qualifying Certificates" from the
Registered Nurses* Association of British Columbia.
10. The University Health Service will ascertain that

acceptable record to this effect.
11. All students enrolled in the University programme may
be interviewed by the Administrator of the Hospital, or
her delegate, prior to their admission to First Year
Nursing or within the first week following the commencement of classes.  In the event that any applicant is
considered personally unsuitable to nursing a joint
conference will be held before any action is taken.
12. There shall be a joint Faculty Committee made up of
representatives from the University of British Columbia
School of Nursing and St. Paul's School of Nursing to
consider the application for admission to facilities
provided by the Hospital hereunder of male applicants,
married applicants and applicants beyond the age of
those usually admitted to training in the nursing
profession, and the personal suitability of such
applicants shall be considered by the joint Faculty
Committee for decision.
13. In the event that a student marries during her course
and prior to the completion of the Third Year, such
change of status may be reviewed by the joint Faculty
Committee and appropriate adjustment with respect to
use of facilities provided by the Hospital hereunder
made, if necessary.
14. The "Summer Programme" for each First Year class will
be planned jointly with due consideration for St. Paul's
programme and for the University's senior Field Work
programme.
15. The clinical nursing programme for each Second and
Third Year class will be planned jointly so as to
enable students:
(1) To carry one or two general University courses
concurrently with their clinical nursing.
(2) To have experience with affiliated agencies as
required and arranged by the University.
(3) Who are of the Roman Catholic faith to have
opportunity to take a course in Catholic Philosophy
as arranged by St. Paul's Hospital, additional to
and outside the requirements of the basic
Professional curriculum. Friday, August 29th, 1958       2594
16. While students will have the use of St. Paul's School
library and study rooms, the University will be
responsible for providing reference materials it may
deem necessary with courses peculiar to the University
programme.
17. The head nurse in charge of the ward or department of
the Hospital to which students are assigned for
experience shall, in all cases, have direct charge and
authority in matters concerning the welfare and care
of patients, provided, however, that such head nurse
and/or St. Paul's School of Nursing instructors, will
confer with University instructors and ascertain the
learning needs of the students before making nursing
assignments.
18. In matters of professional conduct, moral conduct and
behaviour, the Administration of the Hospital and its
Board of Management shall have absolute authority over
University students while within the physical confines
of St. Paul*s School of Nursing and the Hospital, and
in the event that a student shall demonstrate gross
unsuitability for nursing or fail to adhere to
recognized moral, ethical or professional standards
required in the profession of nursing, the Hospital
will have the privilege of requesting the University
to withdraw the student, and in such event the student
will be withdrawn from the facilities provided by the
Hospital hereunder.
In the event that a University instructor demonstrates
unsuitability in relation to professional conduct,
moral conduct or behaviour while in the physical
confines of the Hospital or School of Nursing, the
Administration of the Hospital and its Board of
Management will have the privilege of requesting the
University to withdraw the instructor from the hospital
programme, and in such event the instructor will be
withdrawn.
19. The Joint Faculty will plan items 1 (c) and 1 (d) above
so that they do not conflict with the general training
programme of St. Paul's School of Nursing.
20. Insofar as their educational programme shall permit,
University nursing students will provide adequate
incidental nursing service during the course of their
clinical programme in compensation to the Hospital for:
(a) The privilege of having nursing experience in the
Hospital's clinical areas. Friday, August 29th, 1958       2595
(b) The instruction, supervision and guidance of
students that is provided by the Hospital staff
in the Hospital's clinical areas.
(c) The health supervision and services equivalent to
that provided for students in St. Paul's School.
(d) Meals.
(e) The laundering of uniforms.
(f) Locker and dressing-room facilities for nonresident students.
21. St. Paul's School will provide living accommodation in
the Nurses' residence for a total of twenty (20)
University students, for which each student will be
required to pay the Hospital the sum of Fifteen ($15.00)
Dollars per month for those months when students are
actually in residence; and during this time students
will be expected to observe all Residence regulations
that are applicable to St. Paul's students.
22. Students who have written and specific permission from
their parents or guardians may reside at home or with
relatives or with friends in the Vancouver area.
23. St. Paul's Hospital will provide for the University's
nursing instructors who are assigned to the clinical
programme at St. Paul's:
(1) Available office accommodation.
(2) Locker and dressing room accommodation.
(3) The laundering of uniforms.
24. This Agreement will be reviewed in late November or
early December of 1959 and annually thereafter, at
which times adjustments mutually acceptable may be made.
25. In the event of either the Hospital or the University
desiring to terminate the Agreement, four years written
notice shall be given so as to provide ample time for
the completion of their programme by (a) students
already enrolled and (b) students who have completed,
or partially completed First Year Arts (or senior
matriculation) with a view to entering the basic degree
course in Nursing.
In the event that it should become apparent in the
course of any year and during the continuance of this
agreement that the additional training programme
A Friday, August 29th, 1958      2596
established by this agreement is adversely affecting
the standard of patient care, the entire programme will
be reviewed jointly by the parties hereto and if the
apparent adverse conditions are found to exist, then
and only in such circumstances, the Board of Management
of the Hospital or the University of British Columbia
may discontinue the affiliation by written notice six
months prior to the end of any training year, (i.e. Aug. 31)."
To make the academic part of the nursing training
more effective, the Council of the School of Nursing
recommended also the following revisions in curriculum:
"That the First Year Nursing curriculum ("A" programme)
be changed as follows:
a. That English 200 be deferred to the Second Year
of the programme and replaced by Chemistry 210.
b. That Anatomy 390 and Zoology 303 be deleted and
replaced by two new courses, to he provided by
the School of Nursing, namely,
Nursing 155 (3) Anatomy and Physiology.
A fundamental course, specifically for Nursing
students, consisting of lectures, demonstrations,
and class discussion.
Four hours a week. Both Terms.
Nursing 167 (1) History of Nursing.
One hour a week. Both Terms."
Points covered in subsequent discussion of the
agreement with St. Paul's Hospital included:
1. The desirability of an arrangement with a hospital
supported by a religious group: no insoluble problems
were anticipated, since for several years certain
courses had been given to University student nurses at
St. Paul's Hospital, with no problems arising.
2. The desirability of moving away from the largest medical
centre in the province: continuation at the Vancouver
General Hospital would restrict the University nurses to
the same programme as the hospital nurses, would
necessitate withdrawal of University instructors, and
would be accompanied by reduction of the present
opportunities for experience in mental and public health
nursing. Friday, August 29th, 1958      2597
3. The desirability of awaiting the results of a study by
the Canadian Nurses Association on accreditation of the
various nursing schools: the Association is not at
present accrediting University programmes.
4. What efforts have been made to establish a training
school in a hospital not already maintaining a training
programme of its own? At present nurses in their Fourth
Year have a 4-week experience period in a small
hospital with no training school. However, it would
take several years to develop a satisfactory school
providing complete training.
5. What assurance is there that the difficulties arising
in the programme with the Vancouver General Hospital
will not arise also with St. Paul's Hospital? In the
proposed agreement with St. Paul's Hospital, the
programme is planned specifically for the University
students, and the University is responsible for the

Committee on the Giving: of
Advanced Courses in Arts and
Science by Victoria College
Dr. McGregor, Chairman, read the following report
of the Committee on the giving of advanced courses in Arts
and Science by Victoria College:
"(1) We consider that the regulation requiring a
candidate for the B.A. Degree to complete at
least 15 units of the Final Year in attendance
at U.B.C (Calendar. 1958-59, p. 80) is sound.
It is our opinion that this regulation might
be strengthened by requiring attendance in a
regular winter session, and, indeed, by
extension of the residence-requirement.
(2) Because of the special relationship existing
between U.B.C and Victoria College, and
particularly because of recent developments in
teacher-training, under the academic authority
of the Senate, we recommend that courses taken
at Victoria College for credit towards the
degrees B.A., B.Sc, and B.Ed, be considered on
the same basis as work taken at the University
of British Columbia.
(3) We recommend that the usual procedure of seeking
authorization for the offering of courses at
Victoria College be continued."
