Business arising from the Minutes
As requested at the previous meeting the Registrar reported on the
University of Victoria and Simon Fraser University enrolment figures.
Cor re spond enc e
The Secretary read to Senate letters of appreciation received from Dr.
R. H. T. Smith, Mrs. Geraldine Laird, Mrs. Paddy Scarfe and Mr. Colin Scarfe.
Chairman's Remarks
Dr. Strangway reported that he had recently attended a Universities
Council meeting on planning, together with other members of the university
community and members of the Board of Governors. At the morning session
discussion had centred on enrolment and accessibility. Dr. Strangway stated
that his position on behalf of U.B.C. was that this was not an issue for
this University since it had all the students it could responsibly handle.
At the afternoon session representatives of the Colleges made statements
about their role and a paper was presented which was a specific proposal
that the Ministry of Universities, Science and Corrmunication should in fact
be expanded to include the Colleges. This created an interesting discussion
which has been followed up since then in a number of different formats. The
highlight of the meeting was an address given by Mr. Bovey of the Ontario
Government's Bovey Commission on Universities. Mr. Bovey made a number of
very important observations. Firstly, contrary to his expectations, the
Ontario universities were extremely well managed and had done remarkably
well on delivering services in times of very sharply decreasing budgets.
Secondly, he noted that universities in the north were quite different from
universities in the major cities which were quite different again from
universities in the smaller towns. The differentiation of the system and
the responsiblity of the universities to their communities and in some cases 8524.
December 11, 1985
Chairman's Remarks  (continued)
to a broader national and even international stature had developed extremely
effectively under a system of autonomy. One of Mr. Bovey's points was that
central intervention was not necessary in order to have an outstanding
university system. Here was a university system that had evolved in an
autonomous role and they had done extremely well in rising to the challenges
they were facing. The third point Mr. Bovey made was that universities
could no longer continue to do everything for everybody; already they were
in serious jeopardy with respect to being able to deliver an adequate level
of teaching, research, and community service. The government must accept
the fact that there will be fewer students receiving university education or
there will have to be more money put into the system. Dr. Strangway stated
that it was encouraging that as a direct consequence of the report of the
Bovey Commission a $50 million excellence fund had been created in Ontario
and that this commission had dispelled a number of myths that had grown up
around the university system.
At the President's invitation Dr. Dennison commented on the planning
discussion. He stated that each of the university Presidents had made it
very clear to both the Universities Council and those government members
present that planning did not occur in a vacuum and that for universites to
engage in planning without some clear parameters from government as to
expectations of a financial nature and how many students a university should
serve, was not a particularly productive exercise. Planning had to be a
two-way process.
Dr.  Strangway  referred to  issues  raised at  the previous meeting
concerning planning at the University. He stated that there had been some
perception and also comments in the press that this University had not been 8525.
December 11, 1985
Chairman's Remarks  (continued)
engaged in planning. After those remarks had appeared in the press the
University confirmed with the Universities Council as to whether there were
any pieces of information, data or planning documents that they had not
received. The fact of the matter was that the documentation submitted
during the summer was precisely what the Universities Council had requested.
Another point raised at the previous meeting was the role of the Budget
Committee with respect to planning. Dr. Strangway felt that while the
Senate Budget Committee would be deeply involved in various parts of the
planning process, he was anxious to engage in a much broader University
dialogue with respect to the planning issues. Basic parameters would have
to be set and faculty members, students and staff would be asked to respond
to information concerning future planning for the University. It was hoped
that by the end of the academic year Senate would be able to have a really
good debate on what might be a preliminary version of a University-wide
strategic planning document.
In response to a query concerning the involvement of students and
convocation senators on planning subcommittees, the Chairman confirmed that
it was his intention that these groups would be involved together with
people from other groups who also should have an opportunity to express
the ir vi ews .
In response to a further query concerning the visit of the Social Credit
caucus, Dr. Strangway stated that he spent the first hour briefing the 16
Members of the Legislative Assembly on what he felt some of the issues
were. He reminded them of the steps the University had already taken, the
cuts that had taken place and what those cuts in fact meant.  Dr. Strangway 8526.
December 11, 1985
Chairman's Remarks  (continued)
pointed out that although student numbers had not decreased, the support
staff had gone down by 25% in the last three years, faculty members had gone
down by almost 10% and that our inflated dollar amounts had gone down by
20%. He also pointed out that contrary to certain public opinions the
University had made a remarkable set of adjustments in dealing with the
economic problems.
Dr. Strangway concluded his remarks by stating that he hoped that the
dialogue which was taking place would lead to a greater understanding of
what universities are and are for and of what they can do for the province
and the country.
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
Dr. Williams   )  That the new awards listed in Appendix 'A'
Dr. Cook       )  be accepted subject to the approval of the
Board of Governors and that letters of thanks
be sent to the donors.
In presenting the list of awards Dr. Williams noted that "M.D." should

"Amendment to Requirements for Admission of Students
to Advanced Standing in the Faculty of Dentistry
That Section C, p. 105,  col. 1,  1985/86 Calendar be deleted.  The
section reads as follows:
C. Students not previously enrolled in a dental school.

Continuing Education
The   annual  report on  U.B.C.   Continuing  Education  and   Cultural  Activities
for  1984-85  had been circulated  for  information.
In speaking briefly to the report Dr. Birch, Chairman of the Committee,
drew Senate's attention to the non-metropolitan outreach of the University
and to the non-credit activities. He stated that service provided to
non-metropolitan areas had remained at a steady level but that it had
increased quite dramatically in teleconferencing activities, videotape
library and distribution; in other words the mode of contact had been
changing although the overall scale of contacts was approximately the
same. In the general continuing education activities, programs offered
through  the  Centre were   down  by  about  12%  due  to  budget  cuts,   specifically 8528.
December 11,   1985
Reports  of Committees  of Senate
Continuing Education     (continued)
programs in architecture, engineering, continuing medical education,
agriculture, nursing, and in the non-credit area of Forestry almost
nothing was offered in the past year although they had offered a fair
amount of credit work. Participation was up by almost the same amount in
a number of other areas, in education by about 75%, nutrition and
dietetics was up a substantial amount, pharmacy, social work, dentistry,
and all the programs in languages (english as a second language, french
and other language programs) were up substantially from the previous
year. The overall figures for non-credit continuing education activities
represented contacts in continuing education of over 61,000 British
Columbians,  which was down by about  1%  from the previous year.
Dr. Birch further stated that there were a number of policy issues which
would no doubt be addressed in the course of the coming year. He said
that it was remarkable that the standard of activity had been maintained
at the level it had when the support from the operating budget for
continuing education activities had been very severely squeezed. In the
current year the support from the operating budget had been reduced over a
quarter from what it previously was, so continuing education activities
were more and more expected to be self sustaining financially. That in
itself represented a policy issue that the Senate Committee and Senate
itself might have to address and think about quite seriously because it
was a very substantial part of the University's contact with the community
and was defined in the University Act as one of the statutory elements of
the University's mission. The relationship of continuing education to
academic    departments,    the    outreach    to    the    province    as    a    whole,     the 8529.
December 11, 1985
Reports of Committees of Senate
Continuing Education  (continued)
relationship between face to face activities and continuing education at a
distance, were all policy issues which, in the course of the University's
planning, would have to be addressed very seriously in the course of the
next year.
Dr. Birch concluded his remarks by expressing appreciation to the
Director of Continuing Education, Mr. Jindra Kulich, who not only had
reported on the activities offered through his own Centre but had again
collated activities from a wide variety of units across the University.
Dr. Birch     )  That the report be received.
Mrs. Macdonald )
Following a brief discussion the motion was put and carried.

December 11, 1985
Reports of Committees of Senate  (continued)
Library Committee
Dr. Wisenthal presented the following report for information:
"In its recent meetings, the Senate Library Committee has been reviewing
the current state of Library collections funding and now has a brief
report of the information of Senate.
1. The Library, like other units throughout the University, is caught
between budgetary constraints and unavoidable increases in costs.
The cost of library purchases for the collection has been increasing
by about 8% a year. In recent months, currency changes have had the
effect of further increasing the rate at which costs are growing.
2. Since 1981/82, there has been only one increase to the collections
budget: 5% in 1984/8 5. Funds carried over from previous years have
helped to delay the impact of our inability to maintain the budget at
an adequate level, but that will no longer be sufficient to continue
current levels of purchasing in 1986/87.
3. To avoid reductions in the level of purchasing beginning in 1986/8 7,
increases of 10% to 12% would e required in each of the next two
years. Needless to say, the Library cannot proceed on the assumption
that such funds will be available.
4. While purchases in 1985/86 will not be affected, the Library has
begun to plan for reductions in serial and book purchases in 1986/87
in the event that the fiscal situation does not improve.
Considerable advance warning is required to permit necessary
consultation concerning serial titles that might be cancelled. The
Senate Library Committee has been considering the process of
consultation with academic units, and the nature of this consultation
will be described soon a letter to Faculties, Departments and
Schools."
During the discussion that followed a question was raised concerning the
availability of books needed by undergraduates in their courses.  Dr.
Wisenthal gave the assurance that the question of the availability of
recommended reading would be discussed by the committee.

a Centre for the Study of Childhood, to be called the J. F. McCreary
Centre. The purpose was "To stimulate and facilitate studies of
childhood by providing a resource centre for those involved in
conducting such research." The Centre has, however, never really become
active and anticipated outside funding did not materialize. Recent
discussions with the Department of Paediatrics have resulted in the
conclusion that research in this area is better done under the auspices
of the department. The Faculty of Graduate Studies therefore recommends
that the Centre be terminated."

FACULTY  OF  SCIENCE
Change      in      Calendar      statement      under      Supplemental     Examinations
underlined phrases are new additions:
Supplementals are not a right but a privilege granted by the Dean after
consideration of a student's complete academic standing. A student who
has written final examinations but failed a course or courses in the
Winter, Spring or Summer session, or correspondence course, may be
granted permission to write supplementals in courses for which
supplemental examinations are provided. In courses in the Faculty of
Science supplemental examinations will usually be available only if
regularly scheduled end of term examinations (December and/or April)
account   for   40%  or  more of  the   final  grade in  the   course.
Supplemental examinations for Winter Session are given in late July or
early August. Students who fail a final examination in December, cannot
take a supplemental examination prior to this period because this
privilege, if granted, is based on the student's complete academic
standing,   which is determined after final examinations  in April.
Eligibility
(a) In the Winter  session,   normally the  student must  have:
(i)     passed the  laboratory work,   written the   final   examination,   and
obtained   at    least    40%    standing   in    the    course   in   which   the
supplemental  is  granted,   and
(ii)   obtained  a   60%   average   in   the   number   of   units   of   course  work
required     for     satisfactory     standing     in    the     same     academic
session.
(b) In an extra sessional (Winter, Spring, Summer) or correspondence
course, general University regulations apply (see General
Information section of Calendar).
(c) In all but the final (graduating) year a candidate who has been
granted a supplemental may write it only once. A student who fails
a supplemental  examination must repeat the course or take a
permissible substitute. However, in the graduating year a
supplemental examination may be written twice with permission of
the Dean. 8541.

Cre dit
If the supplemental examination is passed with a grade of at least 50%,
credit will be given for the course. In the computation of the overall
average in the work of a session or for a degree, the grade in a
supplemental examination, if passed, will be considered as 50%.
Similarly, the overall average will not be changed if a subject already
passed is written for a higher standing.

Mathematics
Changes in Calendar Statement and Programs (continued):
All Mathematics students should consult an advisor in the Mathematics
Department each year.
The student should note that the first digit in the number of a course
is intended to convey the level of mathematical maturity at which the
course is conducted rather than the year in which it must be taken.
A student will be denied entry into a third year course if the minimal
passing grade is obtained in a prerequisite second year course.
Requirements for the B.Sc. degree:
Major programs
The department offers a wide choice of opetions each of which is
intended to introduce the student to some particular area of
mathematical activity of application. The student should consult a
Mathematics Major Advisor at the beginning of second year or when
considering the possibility of becoming a Mathematics Major. All
Mathematics major programs have to be approved by the Department each
year.
Honours programs
Students planning to take an Honours degree in Mathematics, Applied
Mathematics, or Mathematics combined with another subject, please note
the following:
1. Students are required to formulate a program of study at the
beginning of second year (to be updated each year) under the
guidance of a Mathematics Honours Advisor. The program must be
approved by the Mathematics Honours Committee.
2. Language requirements: B.C. Grade 12 level French or German, or one
year of University level French, German, or Russian. For students
who plan graduate work in Mathematics, further work in one of
French, German, or Russian is recommended.
3. To be admitted into an Honours Mathematics program, a student must
obtain at least a second class mark in MATH 121 or a first class
mark in MATH 101 and a first class average in MATH 100/101. To
remain in Honours Mathematics, a student must obtain at least a
second class mark in each required Mathematics course and maintain
an overall second class average. 8554.
