Mr. S. H. Lu - student representative of the Faculty of Medicine
Minutes of the previous meeting

Dean McNeill J        of Senate for the Session 1991-92, having been

 Vancouver Senate 10335
Minutes of May 20,1992	
Chairman's Remarks and Related Questions
Dean Grace referred to the discussion which had taken place at the previous meeting
concerning the Biomedical Research Centre, and stated that he wished the minutes to
reflect the question which he had posed, specifically that he had requested assurance that
the proposal to be considered by Graduate Council would not simply be the one-page
proposal distributed with the April Senate agenda. In order for Graduate Council to deal
with the issue, the ad hoc Committee of Graduate Council to be established would need
the same kind of information and detail that would normally be available when
considering new Centres and Institutes. Dr. Birch had assured Dean Grace that the
additional information could be made available.
The motion, with the
addition noted above,
was put and carried.
Chairman's Remarks and Related Questions
On behalf of Senate, Vice-President Birch expressed thanks and appreciation to Dean
Robertson, Dr. Bongie and Dr. Elder for their contributions as members of Senate and as
members of the University community as a whole.
Candidates for Degrees
Lists of candidates for degrees, as approved by the various Faculties and Schools, were
made available for inspection by Senate members prior to the meeting.
Dean Marchak l        That the candidates for degrees and diplomas,
Dean Sheehan J        as approved by the Faculties and Schools, be
granted the degree or diploma for which they
were recommended, and that the Registrar, in
consultation with the Deans and the Chairman
of Senate, make any necessary adjustments.
Carried.

ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE
Faculty of Graduate Studies - proposed revision to admissions criteria
Dr. Will, Chair of the Committee, reported on the following proposal, which had been
circulated:
Existing Calendar Entry (1991-92 Calendar p.140)
A.4.    Applicants for the Ph.D. and D.M.A. degrees must have completed:
a) Bachelor's degree with First Class Honours (or equivalent) (see C.l Course Work
in this section), or
b) Bachelor's degree with one year of study in a Master's program with 18 credits of
First Class average, of which, normally at least 10 credits must be at the 500 level
or above and at least 10 credits must be of First Class standing, and clear evidence
of research ability. (Transfer directly into a Doctoral program is not normally
permitted beyond the first year of study and will not be permitted after the
completion of the second year in a Master's program.); or
c) Master's degree (or equivalent).
Proposed revision
A.4. (c) A Master's degree (or equivalent) with clear evidence of research ability or
potential (for Ph.D.), or with outstanding ability in performance or composition
(for D.M.A.).
The Committee recommended approval of the proposed revision to item A.4.(c), and also
recommended the following revision to item A.4.(b):
After "... research ability ..." add: "or potential (for Ph.D.) or outstanding ability
in performance or composition (for D.M.A.)."
 Vancouver Senate 10337
Minutes of May 20,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Dr. Will l        That the revisions to items A.4.(c) and (b) of
Dean Grace i        ^e admissions criteria for the Faculty of
Graduate Studies be approved.
Carried.
CURRICULUM COMMITTEE (See Appendix 'B')
Dr. Sobrino, Chair of the Committee, presented the report.
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences.
Faculty of Applied Science
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals, subject to editorial
changes to the descriptions of CHML 345 and 346. The inclusion of English 112 (or
another suitable English course) in the First Year Engineering program and changes to
Faculty regulations were also recommended for approval.
Faculty of Arts
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of Arts,
with the exception of the proposal to change the Calendar statement under Major in
Music Theory and Honours in Music Theory, to "... must have at least an overall B-
average..." (pending clarification of some points arising out of the introduction of the new
grading system), and, subject to the following:
 Vancouver Senate 10338
Minutes of May 20,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Major in Physical Geography - footnote 7, change to read: "Complete program ...
of which at least 30 credits must be in Science courses".
Dr. Sobrino drew attention to the School of Music's proposed Calendar statement on the
English requirement, stating that it had been pointed out to him that the second sentence
of the statement was confusing. Dr. Sobrino explained that the Curriculum Committee
relied on the Registrar to make any necessary editorial corrections in order to make the
Calendar clear, and trusted that he would do so in this case.
Faculty of Education
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Education.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals, together with a
proposed change to the Calendar statement on Correspondence Courses to clarify the
maximum number of credits that can be taken off-campus for a Master's degree, and a
proposal to offer a Master of Science program in Rehabilitation Medicine, submitted by
the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Dr. Sobrino expressed the concern of the Committee that graduate courses that are of
fundamental interest to graduate students in related disciplines are often limited to
students in one department because of budgetary constraints. He cited as examples BIOC
514 and 521.
 Vancouver Senate 10339
Minutes of May 20,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
In response to a query by Dr. Williams, Dean Grace stated that it was very unlikely that a
student with a Bachelor of Arts would be admitted to the Master of Science program in
Rehabilitation Medicine. However, if there was a university that gave a Bachelor of Arts
for some field that related to the kinds of therapeutic things in the program, it was
conceivable that a student could be admitted especially if they had been working in the
field. In response to a further comment, Dean Grace stated that the "norm" in a sense is
specified in the admission statement in that it says that "...Preference will be given to
occupational therapists and physical therapists who have current certification or eligibility
to practice, and at least one year of clinical experience...".
Faculty of Medicine
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Medicine.
Faculty of Science
The Committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Science, subject to the following:
• Major in Chemistry (Environmental Option) - add PHIL 417 to footnote 6
• Major in Physical Geography - footnote 7, change to read: "Complete program
... of which at least 30 credits must be in Science courses".
 Vancouver Senate 10340
Minutes of May 20,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Dr. Sobrino l        That the proposals of the Faculties of
Dr. Resnick i       Agricultural Sciences, Applied Science, Arts,
Education, Graduate Studies, Medicine, and
Science, be approved.
Carried.
COMMITTEE ON STUDENT AWARDS
In presenting the report, Dr. Cook, Chair of the Committee, noted the increase in
Campaign Endowment awards, and drew attention to the Dofasco Inc. First Nations
Fellowship, the Northwood Pulp and Paper Timber Ltd. Scholarship, and the Westcoast
Energy Inc. First Nations Fellowship, which meet the special criteria in the mission
statement "Second to None", that is the particular ear-marking of funds to recruit
students from First Nations backgrounds and also to recruit students who live outside of
the lower mainland, particularly in northern parts of British Columbia.
Dr. Cook l        That the new awards (listed in Appendix A) be
Dr. Kelsey J        accepted subject to the approval of the Board
of Governors and that letters of thanks be sent
to the donors.
Carried.
Dr. Cook commented on the heads of the graduating classes. She noted that one student
entered from a Canadian high school outside of British Columbia. Nine came from British
Columbia schools, nine from B.C. Colleges. This year, as opposed to previous years, none
came from other British Columbia universities, but six came initially from other Canadian
universities. She stated that this closely paralleled the pattern that we have seen in the past
few years, where almost an equal number
 Vancouver Senate 10341
Minutes of May 20,1992	
Triennial elections of representatives to the Board of Governors and the Senate
of the graduating classes enter directly from British Columbia high schools as opposed to
those entering from B.C. colleges. Dr. Cook also referred to four members of the
graduating classes that entered with either entrance scholarships or subsequent to entering

Scholar.

were quite a number of different ways in which VST seeks the participation of the
University community.
In conclusion, Dr. Van Seters informed Senate that the Bill which will change the form of
