Minutes of Previous Meeting
Dean Scarfe    )    That the minutes of the second regular
Dean Armstrong )    meeting of Senate for the Session 1966-67
having been circulated, be taken as read and
3704 Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Senate Membership
The Chairman introduced Mr. John R. Meredith, who had been
appointed to Senate by the Lt. Governor in Council replacing Dr. J.F.K.
English.  The Chairman also introduced to members of Senate Mrs. Clare
Earle, recently appointed Administrative Assistant to the President,
who attended the meeting as an observer.
Business Arising from the Minutes of the Previous Meeting
1. Faculty proposals on new courses, etc. referred to the Curriculum
Committee (see report of the Curriculum Committee of Senate,
Page 3706 to Page 3710).
2. Possibility of Student Membership on Senate - The Chairman drew
members' attention to the report of the Senate Executive Committee
which recommended that, following submission of the report of the
Senate Committee on Role and Organization of Senate, this same
Committee or a new Committee be charged with consideration of the
question of student membership on Senate.
Dr. Stewart felt that this matter should be discussed as quickly
as possible in order that the Senate's views on the subject might
be prepared before the student body approached the Senate with a
formal application for membership.
Dean Cowan    )    That the recommendations of the Senate
Dean Okulitch )    Executive Committee be approved with the
amendment that the matter be discussed as
quickly as possible.
Notification of Approval by the Board of Governors
of Senate Recommendations
1. Colours in the Hood for the Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation
2. The Programme Arts I in the Faculty of Arts.
3. The regulation that Science students be allowed to count fifteen
units of courses offered by the Faculty of Medicine for credit
towards a Bachelor of Science Degree.
4. The combined programme in the Faculty of Science and the Faculties
of Medicine and Dentistry. Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
In connection with the last item, the Registrar explained that
there had been some misunderstanding. The number of students that this
would involve would be greater than had been explained to Senate.
However, the Executive Committee had reviewed the question and supported
the extension of the combined programme of studies to the somewhat
greater number of students.
Reports of Senate Committees
Senate Executive Committee
The Senate Executive Committee had dealt with a number of
items on the Agenda and their recommendations had been attached
to the relevant papers.
Curriculum Committee
The Chairman explained the circumstances of the report in
that the Curriculum Committee had been asked to consider the
proposals of the Faculties and that Senate would approve the
courses subject to any criticisms from the Curriculum Committee.
(For Faculty proposals see Appendix A)
The Chairman pointed out that the Senate Executive Committee
could not agree with the recommendation of the Curriculum
Committee concerning the elimination from the calendar of the
underlined portion of the following statement:
"The Faculty will recommend to Senate the granting of the
D.M.D. degree to a student who has completed satisfactorily
the academic requirements and who, in addition, is considered
by the Faculty to be a suitable person to practise Dentistry." Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
The Curriculum Committee had recommended that this
statement be deleted from the Calendar both for Dentistry and
Dean McCreary explained that the clause had been inserted
some years ago following an unfortunate situation in which a
Final Year medical student began exhibiting signs of psychiatric
illness. He was convinced of the necessity of a protective
clause but felt that no further statement was necessary beyond
that given in another regulation that he quoted, Page Q29 of the
1966-67 Calendar:
7.  Although satisfactory academic performance is prerequisite
to advancement it is not the sole criterion in the
consideration of the suitability of a student for promotion
or graduation. The Faculty reserves the right to require a
student to withdraw from the Faculty if he is considered to
be unsuited to proceed with the study or practice of
The statement in dispute was considered to be inflammatory
by several members who participated in the discussion.
Dr. Copp   )    That the statement in question be
Dr. Gibson )    amended to read "... who is recommended
by the Faculty to be a suitable person
to practise ...", in place of "... is
considered by the Faculty ...".
Considerable discussion followed as to the University's
responsibility in the granting of degrees leading to the
professions.  Strong arguments were presented for leaving the
responsibility of the licensing of suitable professionals to the
3707 Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Governing Bodies of the professions and having the University
devote its efforts solely to the academic problems of professional
education.  It was pointed out by members of the Faculty of
Medicine that the Faculty was morally obliged to select and
train students suitable to practise medicine and that this
process began with the work of the Admissions Committee. Fears
were expressed that the licensing agencies would find it
difficult to refuse certification to a student who was, by all
evidence, fully trained by the University.
Senate was assured that it would receive a full explanation
of every case in which a student reached the end of his
graduating year and was denied a degree for reasons other than
his academic ability.
Hie motion was then carried.
Dr. Friedman )    That a special committee be struck to
Dr. Norris   )    investigate the possibility of finding
a more adequate academic solution to
the problem of the professional
responsibility of granting professional
degrees, especially in Medicine and
Dentistry where the Governing Bodies
apparently did not provide adequate
School of Home Economics
Dr. Zbarsky pointed out that the School of Home Economics,
in the revised programme in Foods and Nutrition in the Second and
Third Years required a student to take compulsory courses •
Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
(Foods 201 and Advanced Nutrition 305) concurrently with
prerequisite courses (Chemistry 230 and Biochemistry 410).
The Curriculum Committee had reported that it was not likely
to be a serious problem with Foods 201 and Chemistry 230, but
for a student to be required to take Advanced Nutrition 305
and Biochemistry 410 concurrently would possibly be unreasonable.
However, the revised programme would take effect over a number of
years and thus there was time for discussions between the School
of Home Economics and the Department of Biochemistry to overcome
the difficulty.
The Chairman suggested that the Curriculum Committee refer
this problem to the new Director of the School on his arrival.
Agricultural Economics
Dr. Belshaw suggested that the new course Agricultural
Economics 340 which the Faculty of Agriculture had entitled
"Rural Development" be renamed "Economics of Rural Development".
The Chairman asked Dean Eagles if he felt there would be any
objection from his Faculty and in view of his negative reply the
Committee agreed to the alteration.
Mr. Bibbs proposed a vote of thanks to the Curriculum
Committee and referred members to the third and fourth paragraphs
of the report:
"The work of the Committee was hampered by the limited
time available and by the practice of some Departments and
Faculties of bringing forward extensive course revisions
3709 Wednesday, February 15, 1967,
"without adequate explanation of the reasons for the changes.
Further difficulties were encountered in some areas by a lack
of adequate inter-faculty consultation and collaboration on
course proposals of an interdisciplinary nature.  In effect,
much of the Committee's time was spent seeking explanations
and arranging for consultation between interested departments,
much of which should take place at an earlier stage in
curriculum development.
"The Committee is also concerned over the lack of meaningful procedures available to Senate for evaluating course
proposals, particularly in those situations where inter-
faculty consultation does not resolve the matter in question.
It should be possible to develop general guidelines to
improve Senate's effectiveness in dealing with matters of
curriculum development and we hope to prepare a report for
presentation to Senate at a later date."
The Chairman expressed appreciation of the excellent report
on behalf of Senate.  He asked Dr. Hall if the Committee could
present the further report it was preparing to the Committee on
Role and Organization of Senate prior to its meeting on Wednesday,
22nd February, 1967.
Dr. Smith )    That the report of the Curriculum Committee
Mr. Lysyk )    be adopted with the amendment concerning the
safeguard clause for the issuing of the M.D.
and D.M.D. degrees.
Committee on Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
The Chairman drew attention to the Killam Scholarships and
reported that there was no definite information available on the
amount to be provided for this year.
The Senate Executive Committee had recommended approval of the
new awards as shown in Appendix B. Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Mr. Miller )    That these new awards be accepted, subject
Dr. Scott  )    to the approval of the Board of Governors
and that letters of thanks be sent to the
List No. 9 of awards of fellowships, scholarships, etc. was
circulated at the meeting.
New Programmes Committee
New Programme in Astronomy
The Senate Executive Committee had recommended approval
of the expansion of studies in Astronomy with serious
consideration to the argument of the New Programmes Committee
that there be no impediment to the acceptance at the graduate
level of competent scholars who were graduates in other
disciplines from the University of British Columbia or
other universities.
Professor Bourne presented the New Programmes Committee's
Mr. Bourne  )    That the report of the New Programmes
Dr. Norris )    Committee recommending the establishment of the New Programme in Astronomy
in the Faculty of Science be accepted
and that the development and accomplishments in the field of astronomy
at the University of British Columbia
be reviewed by Senate in three years'
t ime.
A Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Mr. Meredith asked whether or not this type of
proposal had been discussed with other universities. He
had heard that there were similar developments at the
University of Victoria and felt that there may be a
possibility of unnecessary duplication.
Dean Okulitch replied that there had been no official
discussions with Victoria but that his understanding was
that Dean Wood had indicated that the University of Victoria
did not propose to develop astronomy further than the
present offerings in Descriptive Astronomy.
Proposed Master of Applied Science Degree in Agricultural
Professor Bourne presented the report of the New
Programmes Committee recommending the approval of the
Mr. Bourne )    That the report of the New Programmes
Dean Cowan )    Committee be approved, recommending
programmes of study leading to the
degree of Master of Applied Science.
Religious Studies - Proposed M.A. Programme of Studies
Professor Bourne informed Senate that the New
Programmes Committee was still considering the proposal.
Mr. Bourne )    That the report of the New Programmes
Dean Cowan )    Committee be accepted.
3712 Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Honorary Degrees Committee
Dean McCreary presented the report of the Honorary Degrees
Following the authorization by Senate at the December
meeting, invitations had been extended to the eight persons
nominated for honorary degrees. Four had accepted and four
had declined the invitation.
Those accepting were:
Dr. Loren Gorey Eiseley
Dr. Roger Gaudry
Dr. Henry C Gunning
Dr. Hugh MacLennan
The Committee recommended that invitations be extended to
the following persons to receive degrees at the Spring
Congregation 1967:
Dr. Leon J. Ladner
President John B. Macdonald
The Honourable J. 0. Wilson
The Honorary Degrees Committee had recommended that
honorary degrees should be presented to the outsiders on the
first day of Congregation, the B.C. residents on the second day
and that President Macdonald should be the sole candiate on the
final day.
Dean McCreary )    That the report of the Honorary
Dean Cowan    )    Degrees Committee be approved.
J Wednesday, February 15, 1967,
Recommendations from the Faculties
Faculty of Arts
(a) Geography 405 in Mexico
Dr. Chapman assured Senate that there would be other
courses offered on campus and that the Senate Executive
Committee's requirement that the same course or acceptable
alternatives be available on campus in the Summer Session for
those students who could not afford the additional expenses of
the trip to Mexico, would be met.
Dr. Chapman stated that he had been assured that the
Extension Department had been consulted regarding liability for
injuries sustained by students while taking the course and of
other financial implications of the venture which the Senate
Executive Committee had queried. The Extension Department were
dealing with this in the normal way.
Dr. Chapman )    That the proposal of the Faculty of Arts
Dr. Clark   )    to offer a Geography course in the field
during the summer of 1968 be approved.
(b)  Extra-Sessional Courses, May - August
The Registrar explained that these courses would be given
in the evening over an extended period from May until August. Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Dean Scarfe asked if the courses were proposed to start
immediately and if the proposal had been discussed with the
Summer Session Committee. He was told that it had been
discussed with the Director of Summer Session and that the
courses were to begin in May, 1967. Dean Scarfe felt that the
courses if offered would have an adverse effect on Summer
Session courses for which commitments had already been made.
He also pointed out that the Faculty of Education had not been
Dr. Norris felt that Dean Scarfe's alarm concerning the
Summer Session was unfounded since so many of the courses were
extremely overloaded. He suggested that the proposal might prove
to be beneficial in reducing the sizes of classes in the Summer
The Chairman suggested that Senate give its approval to
this proposal but that the Summer Session Director and the
Director of Extension be asked to look into the problems that
might arise. It was so agreed.
(c)  Psychology 206 by Correspondence
The Senate Executive Committee had recommended approval
of the proposal to offer this course by correspondence through
the Department of University Extension. Senate concurred. Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Faculty of Dentistry
Proposed Hood for the D.M.D. Degree
The proposal that the hood for the D.M.D. degree have
lilac edging and red lining with a chevron of University blue
and gold, and that it be the same size and shape as the hood for
the M.D. degree was^approved. A sample hood was displayed for
the benefit of Senate Members.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Triumf Project
The Chairman drew Senate's attention to the recommendation
of the Senate Executive Committee which had urged Senate to give
careful consideration to the recommendation of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies that procedures be established by Senate and
the Board of Governors to study the priorities of academic
The Chairman then introduced Dr. Vogt and Dr. Warren who
had kindly agreed to attend the meeting and give Senate
information on the Triumf project.
Questions were raised concerning the source of the money
that would be required to initiate and carry the project.
Concern was felt that the request of Four Million Dollars for
a building, if granted by the Provincial Government, would
adversely influence the granting of other funds for University
3716 Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Although the operating expenses were to be met by the
Atomic Energy Board there was apprehension among Senate members
that a drain on University resources would be inevitable.
Dean Cowan explained the feeling of the members of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies that led to the motion:
"That the Faculty of Graduate Studies request the
Senate to confer with the Board of Governors in
setting up a mechanism for determining priorities
for buildings and major academic projects such as
TRIUMF, the Health Sciences Centre, major institutes,
He expressed the concern of Faculty that there was no clear
channel for the establishment of priorities as among worthy
academic projects.
Dr. Clark urged that Senate have the opportunity to debate
the priorities of proposed new academic endeavours. To this end
Senate should be supplied with full details of each project
including an indication of the financial implications.  Only then
could Senate with any degree of confidence make a recommendation
to the Board of Governors.
Dr. Belshaw argued that projects of a research character
that would derive a substantial budget from University sources
over a period of time might well be referred by Senate to the
New Programmes Committee for review. He considered it could be
J Wednesday, February 15, 1967,
valuable if matters concerning priorities for buildings
or new programmes of research, or teaching, were referred by
both Board and Senate to the New Programmes Committee in
order that full consideration could be given to both the
financial and academic implications.  He also suggested that
projects such as "TRIUMF" that were initially submitted to the
Board of Governors should be referred for evaluation to Senate
before action was taken on them.
It was the view of Dean Armstrong that the "TRIUMF" project
could have been referred initially to the President's Science
Committee for study and report to both Senate and the Board.
After further discussion,
Dr. Norris )    That the resolution of the Faculty of
Dean Cowan )    Graduate Studies be accepted and referred
for study to the Committee on Role and
Organization of Senate and that it also
be forwarded to the Board of Governors.
The Chairman asked all those who had opinions on the matter
to submit their comments to him in writing as soon as possible
for the guidance of the Committee. Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Proposal for a change in title and orientation of the
Institute of Earth and Planetary Sciences
Dean Cowan    )    That the proposal of the Faculty
Dean Okulitch )    of Graduate Studies to change the
name of the Institute of Earth
Sciences to "The Institute of
Earth and Planetary Sciences" and
the proposed amended calendar
statement be approved.
In a brief discussion Dr. Jacobs explained that the
Institute could not attempt to cover all aspects of "earth
sciences" at the present time and would undoubtedly be
expanding the studies as the interest of the Faculty directed,
The motion was then carried.
Faculty of Science
Calendar Change - additions and deletions to the list of
courses approved from other Faculties:
Delete    Forestry 450, 318

Miscellaneous Reports
"A Revised Organization of Continuing Education"
Dean Cowan )    That, as recommended by the Senate
Dr. Webber )    Executive Committee, the opinions of
the Faculties be referred to the Director
of the Department of University Extension
for further consideration and report to
Recommendation concerning the formation of a
"Faculty of Nursing and Related Health Sciences"
Dean Armstrong spoke in favour of the proposal, stating
that Nursing and Rehabilitation Medicine would have about 350
students and 31 staff members, and in terms of students it would
be the largest group in the Health Sciences Section which he felt
justified faculty status.
Dr. Clark   )   That the matter be referred back to the
Dr. Belshaw )   New Programmes Committee for specific
recommendation; that it also be referred
to the administration of the University,
and that further documentation be
In speaking to the motion, Dr. Clark expressed concern about
the proposal since he believed that the group of 27 teaching
staff, only 10 of whom were of professorial rank, was too small
to justify the creation of a faculty. He expressed the fear that
similar groups might likewise become faculties and make the
present relationship between the Deans and the President
untenable. Wednesday, February 15, 1967.
Dean McCreary argued against any delay in the formation
of the new faculty, because of the urgency to make a decision
in view of the impending retirement of the present Director of
Nursing and the necessity of presenting to any prospective
replacement a clear picture of our administrative structure.
Similar arrangements were in effect in the University of
Washington, in Dalhousie University and in the University of
In further discussion it became clear that there was no
definite commitment to include Rehabilitation Medicine in the
proposed new faculty. Moreover, the New Programmes Committee had
previously urged a delay in changing the status of the School of
Nursing until the administrative structure of the Health Sciences
Centre had been defined.
The motion was passed with the addition of a request to the
Senior Administration that there be a clarification of the
University's intentions in the administration of the Health
Sciences Centre.
Release of Results
The Deans recommended that the Dean of a Faculty be permitted
to release information on students' standings at the end of a
Winter Session as soon as the final Faculty adjudication of
results had been completed.  The purpose of the recommendation
A *

was to give early notice of graduation to those students who
began an interneship or a period of articling immediately
following the end of their Final Year.  It would also permit
release of information on supplemental standing for a student
who might be leaving early in May for a remote area for Summer
The Chairman pointed out that the Executive Committee had
recommended that appended to any early release of graduation
results there should be the statement "subject to Senate
In the discussion Dr. Scott pointed out that acceptance of
a _ the recommendation would not require any Faculty to change from
the present system but would permit those professional Faculties
to meet a specific need where one existed.
t Report of the Registrar
It was agreed that the recommendation be accepted.
(a) Registration 1966-67 - received for information.
(b) Distribution of marks in courses offered 1965-66 - received

(1) Numbering represents distinctive areas, e.g. courses in
foods and nutrition all have odd numbers.
(2) Courses building on prior courses have similar numbers.
(3) There is room within each group of numbers to add
additional courses with meaningful numbers.
