Chairman's Remarks
Dr. Strangway commented on the proposed agreement between the University
and the Faculty Association concerning the termination or non-renewal of
faculty appointments for financial exigency and the vote which would take
place at the end of the month with respect to this agreement.  He stated
that a committee of the Board of Governors had accepted the agreement and
that once it is voted upon it will be submitted to the February 6, 1986
meeting of the Board.  He also reported that agreements had been reached
with those individuals whose appointments had been terminated as a result of
program deletions.
Dr. Strangway stated that he had met with the Senate Budget Conmittee to
discuss some of the issues that lay ahead of the University in the coming
months and to review the last few years in an effort to summarize the needs
of the University for the coming year.
Referring to the on-going arbitration with respect to Faculty salary
issues for 1985/86, Dr. Strangway reported that the panel was expected to
hand down its decision in the very near future.
As far as the discussions on planning for the future of the University
were concerned, Dr. Strangway informed Senate that a draft document had been
prepared for consideration by many University groups including the Senate
Budget Conmittee at its next meeting. It was hoped that this document would
be a basis for wider discussions within the university community. 8567.

Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration - proposed changes to
admission requirements
The committee recommended approval of proposed changes to admission
requirements  submitted  by  the  Faculty  of  Commerce  and  Business
Administration, subject to minor changes in wording.  The proposal, as
revised by the committee, reads as follows:
Admission to the Bachelor of Commerce Program
The Faculty has been authorized to restrict enrolment in first and
second-year Commerce. Attainment of the minimum academic requirement
listed below means that the applicant is eligible for selection but does
not provide assurance of admission.  The selection is based on academic 8569.

Admissions Committee
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration - proposed changes to
admission requirements
Admission to the Bachelor of Commerce Program (continued)
standing. In most cases the competition for places is such that
standing above the minimum prescribed requirement is necessary to
ensure admission. Students previously registered in the Faculty of
Commerce who were required to withdraw following a failed year will
normally be considered only after other eligible candidates have been
placed.
Admission from Arts or Science
Students who apply enter the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration from either first-year Arts or first-year Science must
have successfully completed 15 units including: English 100, Economics
100, Mathematics 140 and 141 (or a substitute of Mathematics 100, 101;
120, 121; or Mathematics 111). Note that if Mathematics 111 is taken,
then Mathematics 141 must be completed in the first year of Commerce.
Mathematics 105, 203, and 204 are not acceptable for either inclusion in
the 15 units on which admission to this program is based or for credit
toward the Bachelor of Commerce degree. The minimum stnding for
admission to Commerce is 60 percent (or equivalent) in the pre-Commerce
studies.
Students who have completed two or more years in Arts or Sciences
normally must include further work in Economics, English, and
Mathematics if their application is to be considered. Information on
recommended courses can be obtained from the Undergraduate Office in the
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration. Students are reminded
that in planning thie program they must comply with the requirement of
the Faculty in which they are registered.
In making decisions, emphasis is placed on performance in the
pre-Commerce subjects of Economics, English, and Mathematics.
Admission from College Commerce Transfer Programs
Students who have completed first-year Commerce at a college offering a
U.B.C. transfer program are eligible to be considered for admission to
second-year Commerce if their average is 60 percent (or equivalent) in
the most recent year of studies. Attainment of the minimum academic
requirement means only that the applicant is eligible for selection but
does  not provide assurance  of  admission.
Admission from Commerce Programs  at Other Universities
Commerce students attending other universities and wishing to transfer
to the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration at U.B.C. will be
considered    on    an    individual    basis.       Students    may    be    admitted    with 8570.

Programs. The general rule that all candidates for the degree of
Bachelor of Commerce must be in attendance at this University and
registered in the Faculty for a minimum of at least two Winter Sessions
will apply. Transfer credit will be assessed only after a formal
application for admission to the program has been made. Normally, a
high second-class standing is required for admission; students who have
been required to withdraw from a Commerce program at another university
will not be considered.
Discretionary Admissions (B.C. Residents Only)
Mature students who may not meet the normal university or faculty
requirements for admission but who have relevant work experience may be
considered for admission to the Faculty. Enquiries should be made in
writing to the Undergraduate Office in the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration.  Admission is normally into first-year Commerce.
Admissions from B.C. Grade 12 (or the equivalent)
Graduates from grade 12 or grade 13 in any Canadian province are not

Appeals on Academic Standing
Mr. Burnyeat, Chairman of the committee, presented the following report
for information:
Report for Period April 1, 1984 to December 31, 1985
"Senate's terms of reference for this Conmittee require that it report
annually to the full Senate stating the number of appeals heard, their
disposition and their general nature. The Committee is also asked to
raise for consideration any general matters that have arisen from its
deliberations.
During the period covered by this report, the Committee considered twelve
appeals. Two appeals were allowed, the remainder dismissed. The
Conmittee can allow an appeal only where it finds that unfair or unproper
procedures have been employed and that, as a result, a wrong decision on
the merits may have resulted. The Committee has no jurisdiction where an
appeal turns solely on a matter of academic judgment - in such cases, the
appeal must be dismissed. 8572.
January  15,   1986
Reports  of Committees  of  Senate
Appeals on Academic   Standing     (continued)
Appellants have invariably contended that the standing they have been
assigned was in some way influenced by extraneous factors or improper
procedures that have led to them receiving assigned standing below what
they thought was merited.
In one of the instances where a student's appeal was allowed, the
Committee upheld his contention of use of improper or unfair procedure.
The student's departmental thesis defence has been adjourned and
subsequent correspondence with the Faculty of Graduate Studies had
conveyed to him (so the Committee agreed could be reasonably inferred)
that he could proceed to a University defence of his thesis without
completing his Departmental defence. The Conmittee agreed with the
student that it was improper and unreasonable for the department involved
to subsequently require him to resume his departmental defence before
proceeding to the university defence.
In all other appeals, the panels hearing the appeals concluded that,
although the student may have alleged that improper or unfair procedures
had been involved, those contentions were not sustained. The panels heard
allegations of personal animosity, departmental conspiracy and a variety
of other terrors that may have been quite real in the minds of the
students involved, but which on questioning and other examination were not
found to have  influenced the exercise of  academic judgment  in each case.
A few matters  of  general consideration arise  from the Committee's work.
Firstly, is the growing litigious nature of the work of the Conmittee.
The Committee has tried, within reasonable limits that have not been
objected to by the appellants, to give those who come before it as broad a
hearing as possible so that all their concerns or bases for argument are
fully canvassed. In some cases, this has required more than one hearing
of particular appeals. In several cases, appellants retained legal
counsel. Without limiting the informality of the Committee's proceedings,
it wishes to make the hearings as open and broad-ranging as feasible.
Second, is a question that arises from appeals from decisions made in some
of the professional faculties. It has been the Committee's view that its
preclusion from considering matters that are solely within the scope of
academic judgment includes the question of the suitability of a person to
perform within that profession when the appeal being considered involves a
course that is clinical in nature. It is an area where the line between
what is academic theory and what is practice blurs. However, the
Committee has found that it is within its purview whether a student in a
clinical course in a professional faculty is judged within the guidelines
provided for that particular course.
Third, a further matter also concerns professional faculties. In some
faculties, such as Law, where whether a student passes or fails a year
depends on an overall average rather than grades in individual courses,
the Committee has suggested that where a student has been found to be in a
failing position after interim examinations at Christmas and before final
examinations, the faculty involved attempt to counsel the student early in
the second term. 8573.
January  15,   1986
Reports  of Committees  of  Senate
Appeals on Academic   Standing     (continued)
Fourth, the Committee has observed that procedures for dealing with
student appeals vary considerably from faculty to faculty. It is
recommended that an Ad Hoc Committee of Senate be struck to inventory
these procedures and to recommend campus-wide procedures to be adopted (in
addition to allowing each Faculty and School to maintain procedures
distinct to that Faculty or School).
Finally, there is a question of the procedure for an appeal to this
Committee. The Committee's terms of reference bar consideration of
matters that turn on the exercise of academic judgment. In most cases
considered, the Committee found that when extraneous arguments were
stripped away, what the appellant actually sought was to have the
Committee's judgment substituted for that of the academic unit involved.
That being beyond the Committee's authority, such appeals were dismissed.
When a student inquires about initiating an appeal, he or she is given a
copy of the Committee's terms of reference. Considering the high
percentage of appeals that fail and without wanting to unreasonably
restrict a student's right to a full hearing, the Committee feels that a
guide setting out what constitutes matters that are strictly academic
judgment should be made available to all potential appellants. That sort
of counsel prior to the launching of an appeal could dissuade students
from embarking on appeals that are groundless, could conserve the time and
energy of the Conmittee members, and could ease a not inconsiderable
clerical burden on the  staff of  the  Registrar's Office.
These matters are  raised for the Senate's  information.
The Committee wishes to thank Fran Medley for careful scheduling and
co-ordination of its work, and for keeping a mountain of documents in
constant motion."

Nominating Conmittee  (continued)
"The Nominating Committee was requested at the November 13, 1985 meeting
of Senate to "discuss the question of whether department heads should be
included in the membership of the Senate Budget Conmittee."
Our discussion led to the following conclusions:
1. That if Senate requires that potential for conflict of interest is to
be guarded against, then Associate Deans, Assistant Deans, Heads of
Departments and Schools, and possibly others, should be excluded from
membership on the Budget Committee.
2. That such a procedure would clearly create two classes of Senators,
one of which would be precluded from full Senate participation.
3. That the alternative is to assume that the long standing practice of
Senate be maintained.
Resolved: That elected members of Senate be eligible for election to
membership on any committee of Senate."
Dr. Elder      )  That elected members of Senate be
Dr. Cook       )  eligible for election to membership
on any conmittee of Senate.
In response to a query, Dr. Elder explained that the motion would not
affect the role played by ex-officio members of Senate or those appointed
by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council;  the intent of the motion being
that the Nominating Committee would continue to nominate members of Senate
to serve on Senate committees as it had in the past whereby no senate
member would be excluded from consideration other than where Senate had
specifically indicated, as in the case of the Deans being excluded from
membership on the Academic Building Needs Conmittee.

Report from Regent College
The following report by Dr. Carl E. Armerding, Principal of Regent
College, had been circulated for information:
"In accordance with the requirements of The University of British
Columbia for affiliated colleges, it is my pleasure to report to Senate
on the activities of Regent College for the period outlined. (Academic
Year 1984-85)
During the year completed, including the Summer School 1985 program
period, Regent has again served a wide number of British Columbians and
others with courses leading to its Diploma and degree programs, and has
provided a wide range of continuing education activities, both for
church workers and lay people.  In our full-time academic programs, we 8578.
January  15,   1986
Report  from Regent College     (continued)
averaged 267 FTE students, with part-time students bringing the totals
to 301. At the convocation on May 13, the following diplomas and
degrees were  awarded:
Diploma  in Christian Studies (1 year,   post-graduate) 108
Master of  Christian  Studies (2 year,   with thesis) 15
Master  of   Theological Studies (2 year,   with  examinations) 12
Master of Divinity (3 year professional) 29
Master of  Theology (4 year,  with major thesis) 3
In December 1984 Regent completed a two-year self-study program, with
the results submitted to the Association of Theological Schools in the
United States and Canada, the standard accrediting body for graduate
theological education in the two countries. An accreditation team
visited the school in March 1985, and prior to their departure left with
us the first draft of a very favourable report, which was confirmed in
positive action by the ATS Accrediting Commission at its June 1985
meetings.
Another major step forward has been taken in providing a more adequate
physical plant for Regent College. Plans are now in final stages for
redevelopment of our property on Wesbrook Mall, and a pledge of $1M to
the final cost of the project has been received, with the money to be
placed in trust prior to the end of the 1985 calendar year. Together
with this, Carey Hall, with whom we cooperate on a Master of Divinity
program, has just opened a beautiful new facility, with additional
classroom and office space. Despite all of this, our library and
student  facilities  remain cranped.
Library holdings have now reached close to 35,000 catalogued volumes,
with growing periodical and historical material available in our
extensive microform collections. The library staff at U.B.C, together
with the staff at the Vancouver School of Theology, continue fruitful
cooperation in the development of an excellent resource base for
advanced theological   studies.
I want again to thank the staff and officials of The University of
British Columbia for the many practical ways in which "affiliation" has
been translated from a theoretical to a working concept. In addition, I
have enjoyed the friendship and collegiality of the Senate of the
University as we have together worked through a most challenging period
in the university's  history."
The meeting adjourned at  9.50 p.m.
The   next   regular   meeting   of   Senate   will   be   held  on Wednesday,   February

SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
Bachelor of Architecture Degree Program
This submission proposes amendments to the program of study for the
Bachelor of Architecture degree including course changes, all of which are
intended a) to respond to changing emphasis in knowledge areas relevant to
architecture, and b) to prepare the student to meet changing expectations
emanating from the profession as a result of the impending introduction of
a national professional registration system.
Background
1. At the present time, on completion of a first professional degree,
e.g. B.Arch., a graduate in architecture submits his/her credentials
individually to the RAIC Certification Board in Toronto for vetting.
The Certification Board's authority is delegated by the Provincial
associations which have actual jurisdiction. The Board has a
Registrar and a Committee of architects who examine these paper
credentials and make a judgment as to whether this evidence indicates
that the candidate has studied or is familiar with the material
contained in a list of subjects published by the Board as the
educational requirement for admission to the Registration process.
If the Board is in doubt about any of this material it may require
the candidate to meet with a regional examining committee and
convince them that the material has been adequately covered. If the

is required to make up the deficiency and submit new evidence for
examination to complete the requirements for certification. 8591.

2. Following certification, the candidate can be admitted to a
Provincial Association for a two-year period or more as an
architect-in-training or similar designation (it varies province to
province), during which time he may or may not be required to take
some additional course work (about two weeks) in preparation for
Registration Examinations. During this period he/she must obtain
experience working for a registered architect which is recorded, and
specific minimum periods of time in various sectors of practice are
required. Successful completion of the Registration Exams completes
the process and the candidate is admitted to full membership in a
provincial professional Association as a registered architect.
3. This process is undergoing change in two ways:
a) Because of concerns expressed about the Certification Board's
criteria and procedures, the Canadian Council of University
Schools of Architecture (CCUSA), in collaboration with the Board
and some Provincial Associations including the AIBC, is working to
eliminate the process of individual review of candidates at
Certification for those who are graduates of Canadian Schools, and
to substitute a system of accreditation of the "first professional
degree" programs at these Schools.
b) The Provincial Associations having jurisdiction are developing
national examinations as a first step toward developing a national
registration system and paving the way toward reciprocity between
provinces and freer opportunity for architects to practice across
Canada. Discussions are underway regarding the content of these
examinations but full details are not yet agree. It is likely
that some of these examinations will be based on the US National
Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) Examination
which is in use in all States and is subject to comprehensive and
continuous review and update to meet North American Practice
requirements. The adoption of these new Examinations will
probably increase the expectation at the time of Certification in
Canada with respect to the content of the "first professional
degree" programs.
c) The CCUSA is studying the development of a system to accredit the
Canadian Schools based on the criteria developed by and in use by
the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) in the United
States, which are comprehensive and stringent, based on North
American practice, and coordinated with the NCARB exams. 8592.

Background  (continued)
4. The UBC School, and most other Canadian Schools, are "recognized" by
the Commonwealth Association of Architects which carries simultaneous
"recognition" by the Royal Institute of British Architects. This
involves being visited on a three- to five-year cycle by a
five-person review Board, including academics and professionals
headed by a CAA-appointed Chairman. The criteria for the review are
based on but not equal to RIBA standards for the British Schools.
This School at UBC is scheduled for a CAA "visit" in February 1986
which will provide feedback on the effectiveness of changes we have
implemented since 1983 to meet their critique of the program.
5. Because of the remaining uncertainty and slow pace of development of
the Canadian national registration system, we have decided, with the
encouragement of the AIBC (letter attached), to proceed to seek NAAB
accreditation. The basis of this decision is the belief that, as the
NAAB accreditation process is based on the way the Schools in North
America are set up, and on expectations arising from North American
practice, and as the CCUSA wants to adopt this process as a model for
a Canadian system, the NAAB accreditation will put us in a position
to provide the greatest benefit to our students. We invited NAAB
officials and a consultant to visit this School and discuss their
criteria and procedures, and to help us to understand their
interpretation as it might relate to our B.Arch program. The program
changes in this submission, in our view, if implemented in the
1986/87 session, put us in position to complete the NAAB
accreditation process in the 1987/8 8 session.

Requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Arts:  Major
The student may develop a program of study within the framework of any
one of three Major options, each of which has a particular emphasis
(General, Mathematical Statistics, Optimization). Students preparing
for a career in elementary or secondary school teaching are advised to
select the General Mathematics option, either as a Major in Math or as
part of a double Major in Math and another subject. In the double
Major, up to 3 units of specified Mathematics related courses may be
replaced by other more appropriate Mathematics related courses with the
permission of the department.

are advised to take Mathematics 302 in the second year, and
to take Mathematics 315 in the third year.
4 Statistics 305 and 306, and Computer Science 405 and 406 are
recommended.
5 Economics is the most likely area of application for
students in the Faculty of Arts. The appropriate Economics
courses are 420, 471, and 472. However, the student may
select another area of application and take 6 units of

Students intending to enter the Honours Program should consult a
Mathematics Honours Adviser in the second year. To be admitted to the
Honours Program a student must obtain at least second class standing in
Mathematics 121, or first class standing in Mathematics 101. To
continue in the Honours Program a student must obtain at least second
class standing in each required Mathematics course, and maintain at
least an overall second class average. Students who intend to do
graduate work in mathematics should continue their study of French,
German, or Russian beyond the level which fulfills the language
requirement of the Faculty of Arts.

program   of   the    student   may   be   substituted   for   Mathematics
323 with the permission of  the  department.
Rationale: The changes in the Honours program stem mainly
from the introduction of new courses. The algebra has been
strengthened by the introduction of a strong second year
course (222) and a new classical abstract algebra course
(322). The new courses 321, 323 ensure that the student
will get serious exposure to complex variables and
differential equations, two areas central to the evolution
of  Mathematics   since the  18th century.
The Major program has been divided into 3 broad areas
(general, statistics, operations research) so that students
will study a coherent body of material rather than a
scattered     collection      of      courses. The      Statistics      and
Operations Research options represent two areas that would
be  interesting to a number of   students   in the  Faculty. 8602.

Fine Arts
Change   in program statement:      (continued)
FINE ARTS - Ph.D.,  M.A.  and M.F.A.  degrees
The region offers good collections of modern Canadian painting,
sculpture and architecture, and relatively rich collections of
Asian art and the Indigenous Arts of the Americas. The Fine Arts
Division of the Library has holdings of some 100,000 books and over
400 current periodicals, and can support advanced research in all
areas.
Graduate students are encouraged to travel during their graduate
work, to gain wider first-hand experience of the works of art with
which they are concerned and the sources of information relating to
them.
M.A.   Program:
The M.A. in art history required 12 units of course work (including
a minimum of 6 units at the 500 level), a 3-unit thesis and a
reading knowledge  of  two   languages other than English.
M.F.A. Program:
The program is primarily limited to painting, printmaking and
sculpture. Training in applied art, commercial art and design,
photography, film and television is excluded.
M.F.A. applications will be considered from:
1. Persons holding a B.F.A., B.A., or B.Ed, degree with a
major in Fine Arts and who satisfy the requirements for
admission to Graduate Studies.
2. In exceptional circumstances persons who contend that
their background is of equal merit.
The main consideration governing admission to the program will be
an assessment of work which is submitted as a part of the
application, but other materials will also be taken into account.
If an applicant has not done a minimum of nine units of academic
credit (i.e. non-studio) at the 300 level or above at U.B.C. with
at least Class 2 standing in each, or the equivalent elsewhere,
he/she will be considered for admission to the M.F.A. program only
when this academic requirement has been satisfied. 8615.

Fine Arts
Change  in program statement:     (continued)
FINE ARTS  - Ph.D.,   M.A.   and M.F.A.   degrees
The M.F.A. program requires two academic years of course work and,
no less than two calendar years and no more than five years after
initial registration in the program, a final presentation. The
specific  requirements  are as  follows:
1. Fine Arts 581 (6) and Fine Arts 582 (6). These two
courses constitute an integrated, two-year studio program
worked out for each student by the staff of the
Department in consultation with the student, leading to
the  final presentation.
2. Two academic courses, numbered 400 or above, carrying a
total  of  6 units  of credit.
The final presentation of the M.F.A. program will be offered by the
candidate at an agreed time and place. This must demonstrate to
the satisfaction of the faculty the candidate's capacity for
independent creative work and must be accompanied by a full written
statement of the candidate's intellectual interests and working
procedures.
Ph.D Program:
The Ph.D. in art history is open to well-qualified candidates who
can outline a program which takes full benefit of available
resources and faculty.
Brochures giving details of each program, descriptions of courses
and other information are available from the Departmental office.

Neurosciences
Deletion of the M.Sc. degree in Neurological Sciences - the Neurological
Sciences M.Sc. program has been made redundant by the graduate program
in Neurosciences. The number of students likely to graduate in the
program is very small and the number of students and faculty members
currently contributing to the program is below critical mass.
The requirements of the Neuroscience program appear reasonable and form
the basis of a sound approach. This program should benefit from the
input and experience of all the professors operating in that area. More
time and effort will be spent on the Neuroscience program if the M.Sc.
in Neurological Sciences is abolished.

Proposal for Combined LL.B/M.B.A. Program
The Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration offer a combined program leading to the degrees of
Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.).
The Joint Program is designed to provide students with the fundamentals
of both legal education with a specialization in commercial law subjects
and business education. The program emphasizes the legal aspects of
business and the business aspects of law. Graduates will be eligible to
qualify for the practice of law or to pursue a career in management.
The program is administered by a Joint Degrees Committee, consisting of
equal representation from the Faculties of Law and Commerce and Business
Administration. The Joint Degrees Committee is also responsible for
advising and supervising students in the Program.
Admission
Applicants must satisfy the admission requirements of both the Faculty
of Law and the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Students seeking admission
to the Joint Program must apply separately to each Faculty and to the
Joint Program in accordance with the usual procedure as set out
elsewhere in this Calendar.
The number of students to be admitted to the Joint Program is limited
and will be determined annually by the Joint Degrees Committee and the
Faculties involved, according to the principles approved by the Senate.
Students who have successfully completed first year Law or first year in
the M.B.A. program before the implementation of the Joint Program may be
admitted to the Program with the permission of the Joint Degrees
Conmittee.
Two classes of students are not eligible for admission to the Joint
Program:
(a) Students who do not at the time of application have a university
undergraduate degree.
(b) Students in the combined program leading to the degrees of LL.B.
and B. Com.
A candidate who does not meet the requirements for admission to the
Joint Program may apply separately to either the Faculty of Law or the
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration. 8619.

Calendar  Statement   - Co-operative  Education Program in  Physics
Co-operative Education is a process of education which integrates
academic study with related and supervised work experience in
co-operating employer organizations.
An optional Co-operative Education Program is available for students
in Honours Physics. The program is intended to help prepare
interested and qualified students for research careers in industry
with twenty months of work placement supervised by practising
professionals. Faculty advisors also visit students at their place
of work and provide advice on technical reports required of all
students   in the  program.
To be eligible, students must be admitted to the second year of the
Honours Physics B.Sc. program. Selection of students will be based
on academic performance and general suitability to the work
environment as determined by resume and interview. The total
enrolment will be subject to the availability of appropriate work
placements and faculty advisors. The work placements are arranged by
mutual agreement between students and employing organizations.
Participating students register for Physics 298, 299, 399, 498 or 499
as appropriate.
Graduation in the Co-operative Education Program requires a student
to complete each of Physics 298, 299, 399, 498 and 499, in addition
to the normal academic requirements. Students who complete less than
five courses will have each satisfactorily completed course noted on
their  academic record.
Detailed information on the program can be obtained from the
Department of Physics or from the Office of Co-operative Education in
Brock Hall.
