Business arising from the Minutes
Courses in Canada's other official language
The following notice of motion had been given at the previous meeting:-
"Understood that Canada is a country comprising many different cultures and
possessing two official languages;
Understood that all Canadians should have the possibility of studying in the
official language of their choice in the Province of their choice;
Be it resolved that the Senate encourage all the faculties of U.B.C. to offer
a greater number of their courses in the other official language of Canada;
And that it also be resolved that the Senate encourage the Ministry of
Education to offer a greater number of courses at all levels of education in
British Columbia in the other official language of Canada."
It was agreed that the motion be divided into two parts.
Mr. Warren    ) Understood that Canada is a country comprising
Mr. Coulson  ) many   different   cultures   and   possessing   two
official languages;
Understood that all Canadians should have the
possibility of studying in the official language of
their choice in the Province of their choice;
Be it resolved that the Senate encourage all the
Faculties of U.B.C. to offer a greater number of
their courses in the other official language of
Canada. 7039.
Wednesday, September  13,   1978.
Business arising from the Minutes
Courses in Canada's other official language  (continued)
During the following discussion opinions were expressed that it would be
extremely difficult to teach required courses in the French language; electives would
perhaps be less of a problem. Although there were no academic regulations against
such a proposal there would obviously be financial restrictions.
The motion was put and carried.
Mr. Warren    ) Be  it  resolved  that  the Senate encourage  the
Mr. Coulson  ) Ministry of Education to offer a greater number
of courses at all levels of education in British
Columbia in the other official language of
Canada.
Dr. Lupini, in pointing out that the responsibility of course offerings rests with the
local districts and not the Ministry of Education, suggested the following re-wording
of the motion:-
"Be it resolved that the Senate urge the Ministry of Education to encourage
School Boards to offer a greater number of courses at all levels of education
in British Columbia in the other official language of Canada."
The mover and seconder agreed to the re-wording of the motion.
Following further discussion the motion was put and lost.
Student representation on the University Library Committee and on the Liaison
with Post-Secondary Institutions Committee"
Notice of motion to increase student representation on the above committees had
been given at the previous meeting.
Mr. Warren    ) That the student senator representation on the
Mr. Coulson  ) University  Library Committee be increased by
one.
Carried
Dean Larkin stated that it might be useful to have a graduate student as well as
an undergraduate student on the Library Committee and suggested that the
Nominating Committee take this into consideration when making their
recommendations.
Mr. Warren    ) That    a    student    senator    be    added    to    the
Mr. Coulson  ) membership of the Liaison with Post-Secondary
Institutions Committee.
Carried 7040.
Wednesday,  September   13,   1978.
Business arising from the Minutes  (continued)
Student representation on investigative review committees
Notice of motion had been given at the previous meeting.
Mr. Warren     ) Whereas  an   adequate   assessment  of  academic
Mr. Goodwin  ) programs can only be had when consideration is
given to student concerns, and whereas students
can contribute valuable input on bodies which
assess academic programs and their
implementation; be it resolved that
representation be afforded students on
investigative review committees.
In presenting the motion Mr. Warren explained that students wished to have more
input.  Many of them felt that not enough attention was paid to student opinion.
Dean Will stated that review committees were not representative committees.
When a department was being reviewed no-one from that department, either faculty
or student, was a member of the review committee. Reviews were usually
undertaken by people from outside the University. The purpose of a review was to
ascertain how well the students were being served with existing programs and courses
and he felt that there were opportunities for students to come forward with opinions.
The motion was put and lost.
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations - That, as
recommended by Senate and the Faculty of Medicine, and subject to review by the
University Solicitor and subject to review and agreement by the Chairman of the Board
and the President that there are no substantive changes in the affiliation documents,
the affiliation documents between The University of British Columbia and The Cancer
Control Agency of British Columbia and between The University of British Columbia
and The New Grace Hospital were approved.
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
Questions had been raised at the Agenda Committee meeting concerning
restrictions placed on some of the awards; two were restricted to women students only
and another was restricted to sons and daughters of members of a trade union. The
Agenda Committee had therefore recommended that the list of awards, which had been
circulated, be reviewed by a committee to be established under the report of the
Nominating Committee which appeared later on the agenda.
Considerable discussion followed. Some members felt quite strongly that donors
were entitled to state to whom their awards should be granted. 7041.
Wednesday, September  13,   1978.
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries  (continued)
Dean Lusztig expressed concern that if the recommendation of the Agenda
Committee were upheld, and the granting of these awards delayed, it would create
serious difficulties for those students with financial problems.
Dean Lusztig   ) That Senate consider the list of awards.
Dean Larkin     )
It was generally agreed that the list of awards should be considered but that the
question of policy concerning the acceptance of awards, together with a review of all
existing awards listed in the Calendar, should be referred to the committee to be
established.
The motion was put and carried.
Dean Lusztig  ) That the new awards (listed in Appendix 'A') be
Dean Volkoff  ) accepted subject to the approval of the Board of
Governors, and that letters of thanks be sent to
the donors.

Wednesday, September  13,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
The committee recommended that the following exceptions and amendments be
made:
1. That the prerequisite for Education 339 be changed to read:
"A minimum of nine units of senior course work from the Faculty of
Arts list in Canadian Studies or consent of the instructor."
2. That   approval   of   Home   Economics   521,   523,   525   and   Physical
Education 564 and 567 be withheld pending clarification.
3. That the description of Oceanography 504 (I) Organic Chemicals in the
Marine Environment be changed to read:-
"The role of organic substances in the ocean. Detailed consideration of
man-made pollutants and naturally occuring materials. Chemistry of
the compounds and their synthesis by organisms or by industry.
Chemical lability of the compounds and their environmental
degradation. Ecological impact, oceanographic distribution and
potential use of organic substances as oceanographic tracers. Trace
metal-organic interactions."
4. That   approval   of   Mathematics    III    be   withheld   pending   further
consideration.
Dr. Wisenthal   ) That   the   Four-Year   Program    in   Engineering
Dr. Moore        ) recommended by the Faculty of Applied Science
be approved, with the proviso that the program
be reviewed within the next two years.
Dr. Wisenthal stated that the committee had been assured by the Faculty that the
admissions procedures for this program would be given special attention. Students
would require 'A' standing in Algebra, Physics and Chemistry 12 and there would be
further criteria established in order to ensure that the students admitted could handle
the extra load necessitated by the shorter degree program. It was not anticipated
that many students would be involved; it was not intended to be a large program and
would not affect the existing five-year program. The program was designed for
exceptional, highly motivated, well-qualified students.
In reply to a query Dr. Wisenthal confirmed that any student experiencing
difficulty with the four-year program could move into the five-year program. It was
suggested that data be kept on those students who did not succeed in the program.
The motion was put and carried. 7043.

Report on Interior Programs
At the invitation of the Agenda Committee Dr. Shearer, Chairman of the
President's Committee on Interior Programs, presented a verbal report.
For the benefit of new members Dr. Shearer outlined the background of his
previous reports to Senate. He explained that following the September 1976 report of
the Winegard Commission, the Minister of Education in the Spring of 1977 created an
institution called the Interior University Programs Board, consisting of eight members,
four interior residents and four institutional representatives, one from the Universities
Council and three from the Universities. The Universities were invited to submit
proposals to this Board for degree completion programs to be offered in the Interior of 7044.
Wednesday, September   13,   1978.
Report on Interior Programs  (continued)
the province. The Board worked through the Summer, Fall and Winter of 1977-78 and
recommended to the Universities Council and the Government the funding of some
programs in 1977-78, more or less on an ad hoc basis. Some were credit courses, some
were non-credit courses. The Board reviewed and also recommended a number of
courses and programs to be put on this year, 1978-79, and also reviewed some very
major proposals for institutions to be established by the Universities in the Interior.
The Interior Board rejected this University's proposal for the establishment of an
institution in the Interior. They did that after a very careful study of potential
enrolment. (U.B.C. had proposed a mini Faculty of Arts in an area.) The Board
recommended to the Universities Council the approval of a school of resource
management to be established by Simon Fraser University, in Kelowna, on an
experimental basis. That recommendation to the Universities Council was not fully
accepted and instead the Universities Council funded a further study before making a
final decision, and the study is now being carried out. The Board also recommended
substantial involvement of the University of Victoria, jointly with Selkirk College, in
establishing Fine Arts and Education programs at the David Thompson Centre.
Dr. Shearer went on to explain that at the present time various activities in the
Interior were being funded out of the Interior Programs budget. These were: funding
subsidies for up to thirty Education courses designed to permit teachers in the Interior
to take credit courses towards a degree; a substantial sum of money for professional
development courses in Education; funding for two types of Commerce programs and for
Adult Education short courses; funding for a study on the feasibility of developing
degree courses in Agriculture and in Forestry; a substantial sum for a Bachelor of Social
Work degree program in Prince George; funding for professional development work such
as non-credit courses in Health Sciences, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and in
continuing education some funding for professional development work in Engineering,
development of a diploma program in the Education of Young Children, and for the
improvement of the quality of the Independent Study programs.
Dr. Shearer stated that since the establishment of the Interior University
Programs Board some rather dramatic institutional changes had taken place. Firstly the
Minister of Education announced the establishment of an institution called the Open
Learning Institute, and later in the Spring announced the appointment of Professor John
Ellis from Simon Fraser University as the first Principal of that Institute. The Institute
was established to "provide programs of study learning to a first degree in Arts and
Science,  provide  programs  of  study  in  career,  technical   and  vocational  areas, and 7045.
Wednesday, September  13,   1978.
Report on Interior Programs (continued)
provide programs of study in adult basic education to be distributed by distance
education methods." It appeared that the new Institute would be in direct competition
with established colleges and universities for students. The Open Learning Institute
would pre-empt Arts and Science in the Interior as the programs to be delivered by the
Institute were to be given by distance education methods (essentially correspondence
courses supplemented by tutorial arrangements, television, radio and whatever other
communication devices were appropriate). The effect would be to negate any plans that
the University might have for the future development of substantial programs in the
Arts and Sciences in the Interior.
Simultaneously with the establishment of the Open Learning Institute the Minister
disbanded the Interior University Programs Board. He appointed to the Board of the
Open Learning Institute the four Interior citizens who had been members of the Interior
Board so that part of the Interior Board's operation was being maintained as a cohesive
unit. The implications of the disbandment of the Interior Board were not really clear.
The Minister requested that the Universities Council establish a committee to do the
work that the Interior Board had been doing. The Universities Council turned that
responsibility over to their Program Coordinating Committee which was the committee
to which all new programs approved by the Senate were referred for review and
consideration. Dr. Shearer argued that this was not the appropriate body to carry on
the work of the Interior Board for two reasons: I) the Program Coordinating Committee
was solely concerned with new programs whereas the Interior Board had been concerned
with taking existing programs and offering them in other locations; and 2) only one
member of the Program Coordinating Committee was from the Interior. He had
suggested to the Universities Council that the committee be augmented with residents
from the Interior in order that there might be a substantial contribution from them.
Senate was also informed that a tri-University committee had been formed jointly
with Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria and that the
representatives for U.B.C. were Dr. C V. Finnegan, Dr. P. Remnant and Dr. R. H. T.
Smith. The purpose of the committee was to foster co-operation among the universities
in developing programs to be delivered through distance education and more importantly
to develop cooperation among the universities and the Open Learning Institute. It was
felt that the University could still play a major role in taking programs to the Interior -
an activity well worth funding. It was clear that with the present plans most of the
University's activities would have to be in the professional fields. 7046.
Wednesday, September   13,   1978.
Report on Interior Programs  (continued)
It was hoped that through the tri-University committee, and later perhaps
directly, the University would be able to cooperate with the Open Learning Institute in
developing its programs.
Faculty of Arts
The following report on Diploma Programs offered by the Faculty of Arts in
1977-78 had been circulated for information:-
Program Enrolment        Completion
Applied Linguistics  (Linguistics) 4 2
Art History  (Fine Arts) 21 5
Film/Television Studies  (Theatre) 2 0
French Translation (French) 12 3
German Translation  (Germanic Studies) 2 0
Faculty of Forestry
The Agenda Committee had expressed concern about the university-wide
implications of a proposal from the Faculty of Forestry that as of the next graduating
class the "interest area" be shown in brackets on the Diplomas. The Agenda Committee
recommended that an ad hoc committee be established to investigate the form of
degrees and diplomas in the University.
Dean Riedel  ) That   an   ad   hoc   committee  be  established  to
Dr. Sziklai     ) investigate the form of degrees and diplomas in
the University.

IN MEMORIAM
SYDNEY ISRAELS
Dr. Sydney Israels, professor of Paediatrics in the Faculty of Medicine and one of
Canada's best-known practising paediatricians, died suddenly on July 17, 1978.
A native of Saskatchewan, Dr. Israels was educated at the University of
Saskatchewan, where he received the degree of Bachelor of Science in 1936, Summa
Cum Laude, and the University of Manitoba, where he was awarded his medical
degree in 1939. On graduation he won the University Gold Medal in Medicine and the
Chown Prize and Medal in Surgery. He interned at the Winnipeg General Hospital,
and served as a medical officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II.
Dr. Israels was named a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 1943 and a
Fellow of the American College of Physicians in 1952. He was also a Fellow of the
American Academy of Paediatrics.
At the time of his appointment to U.B.C, Dr. Israels was director of clinical
investigation and research at the Winnipeg Children's Hospital. In 1964 he became
Head of Paediatrics at both the University and the Vancouver General Hospital, posts
which he held until 1977. He attracted top academics to his department, and fostered
an active teaching and research program. In addition to heavy administrative duties,
he himself carried on an active personal research program in the field of metabolic
diseases.  He was also active in population paediatrics.
He served on the University Senate as a representative of the Faculty of Medicine
from 1969 to 1972.
Dr. Israels was largely responsible for the union of the Children's Hospital on
59th Avenue and the Health Centre at the Vancouver General Hospital. He fought
vigorously and relentlessly for improved facilities for treating sick children. In
addition, he was joint founder with Dr. Roger Tonkin of the Reach community clinic
on Commercial Drive designed to provide health services for adults as well as
children and give practical training for medical students.
Dr. Israels was an outspoken critic of the slow progress in obtaining better
paediatric facilities in Vancouver. His dream was realized last year during the
ground-breaking ceremonies for the new Children's Hospital on the Shaughnessy
Hospital site. His death came at a meeting held to discuss better facilities. 7048.
Wednesday, September   13,   1978.
Report of the Tributes Committee
Memorial Minutes  (continued)
His work was more than a profession to him, it was a calling; and he served it
well. It is to be regretted that he had too little opportunity to enjoy the fruits of his
labour.
To his wife, Rita, and his daughters, Carla Levinson and Sherri Israels; to his
brothers, Dr. Max Israels and Dr. Lyonel Israels and sister, Sylvia Markel; and to other
members of his family, Senate expresses its deepest sympathy.
IN MEMORIAM
CHARLES BRUCE WOOD
Charles Bruce Wood, Registrar and Secretary of Senate from 1941 to 1957, died on
July 24, 1978, in his eighty-sixth year. His death came after many active years in
retirement and, except for his last three months, exceptionally good health.
Mr. Wood came to British Columbia as a young man and taught in Penticton and in
Cumberland. He held a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Toronto and a
Master of Arts degree from Columbia University. His teaching career included
several years of instruction at the Victoria Normal School followed by six years in the
then Department of Education at U.B.C., which he joined as lecturer in 1934. In 1940
he became Assistant Registrar and a year later was appointed Registrar and
Secretary of Senate.
As Registrar, Mr. Wood saw the enrolment of the University climb from 2,600 to
well over 9,000 in a three-year period as veterans of World War II returned to their
studies. He was an efficient, taciturn and reserved man, at least in exterior image.
Yet he was very much concerned with students both as a teacher and in his role of
registrar. He was especially helpful to foreign students in an era when the University
was less well organized to attend their needs. Many grateful students remembered
him with respect and affection and continued to correspond with him for years after
he left the University.
The Senate would like to record in this memorial minute its appreciation of the
sixteen years of service that "C.B." gave as its Secretary.
Dr. Stager      ) That the Memorial statement for Sydney Israels

FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES
Combined M.D. and Ph.D. Degree Program
This program is intended for the exceptional student contemplating an academic
career in the Biomedical Sciences who is prepared to accept a program which will
require a minimum period of 6 years To be eligible, the student must have
completed a B.Sc. degree with FIRST CLASS HONOURS (or equivalent), must be
selected as a First Year medical student by the Faculty of Medicine, and must be
accepted into a Ph.D. program approved by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
The M.D.-Ph.D. student will be required to be registered as a graduate student for
a minimum of 3 (12-month) years. During this period, the student will be
permitted to take all the courses required for the completion of First Year
Medicine. In addition, the candidate is expected to undertake all the course work
and research prescribed by the candidate's Ph.D. committee. Only when this
program is substantially complete to the satisfaction of the committee will the
candidate be permitted to register in Second Year Medicine. The summer period
between Second and Third Year Medicine may be used to defend the Ph.D. thesis
if necessary.
Since the course work and the combined program can be expected to be heavy, the
student is advised to arrange to begin the program in June rather than in
September of the first graduate student year.
A medical student who has a B.Sc. degree with first class honours and who has
completed First Year Medicine with high standing is eligible for the M.D.-Ph.D.
program. However, a graduate student is not eligible for the combined program
until he or she has been selected as a medical student by the Admission
Committee of the Faculty of Medicine in the normal way.
Students contemplating application for admission to the Combined M.D.-Ph.D.
program should consult the Office of the Dean of Medicine (Admissions) by the
Fall preceding the year of desired entry to this program.
Transfer of Students from the Faculty of Graduate Studies to the Faculty of
Medicine
Students enrolled in the Faculty of Graduate Studies are advised that only a small
proportion of such students ultimately gain admission to the Faculty of Medicine.
For this reason, students are discouraged from pursuing this course of action to
gain admission to the Faculty of Medicine with advanced standing. Acceptance of
such students into the Faculty of Medicine will be made through the existing
selection procedures of the Faculty of Medicine as outlined above.
