Business arising from the Minutes
Senate was informed that Dr. Stanley B. Knight had been named by the Alumni
Association to fill the vacant Convocation position on Senate.
VACANCIES FOR MEMBERS OF SENATE ELECTED BY MEMBERS OF A FACULTY
(P.11272)
Dean Richards, chair of the Agenda Committee, informed Senate that it had been brought
to his attention that the Agenda Committee's proposed amendment to the motion passed
at the December Senate meeting does not indicate that the procedure applies in cases
where no nominations are received for Senate representatives from the individual
Faculties.
As the existing procedure for filling Faculty vacancies on Senate stipulates:
"That nomination and election shall be conducted in accordance with established
Faculty procedure. Where such established procedures do not exist then nominations
shall be called for either before or on the floor of a meeting of the Faculty concerned
and voting shall be either by a show of hands or by balloting at the meeting."
Dean Richards recommended that this procedure also apply in cases where there are
insufficient nominations in response to a call for nominations for two representatives
from each Faculty to serve on the Senate.
Dean Richards l        That the existing procedure for filling Faculty
Dr. Cohen J        vacancies on Senate be adopted in cases where
there are insufficient nominations for Faculty
representatives to serve on Senate.
Carried.
 Vancouver Senate 11296
Minutes of January 17,1996
Chair's remarks and related questions
ELECTION OF A MEMBER OF SENATE TO SERVE ON THE PRESIDENTIAL SELECTION
COMMITTEE
The following recommendation from the Registrar concerning nominations for a member
of Senate to serve on the Presidential Selection Committee was circulated at the meeting:
There was only one nominee for the two positions on the Search Committee for the
Selection of Presidential Candidates for members of the Senate elected by Senate (see
minutes of October 18, 1995, page 11230). There is therefore one vacancy. I
recommend that a new election be held to fill this vacancy, with the following
timelines:
Call for nominations distributed to members of Senate on Wednesday, January 17,
1996 or mailed Thursday, January 18, 1996
Nomination close Friday, January 26, 1996
Election material prepared and mailed as soon as possible thereafter
Ballot closes Friday, February 9, 1996
Election results available Monday, February 12, 1996
This does not meet the Board of Governors' timeline of having the committee in place
by January 31, 1996. However, in the circumstance I believe it is the appropriate
course of action.
Dean Richards l        That a new election be held to elect a second
Dr. Slonecker i       member of Senate to serve on the Presidential
Selection Committee.
Carried.
Chair's remarks and related questions
Dr. Will expressed the opinion that it was sad and unfortunate that a number of elections
could not be completed because of a lack of nominations. He stressed the importance of
keeping the Senate well provisioned with people who can make contributions and hoped
that the situation would not be repeated in three years time.
 Vancouver Senate 11297
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ms. Dzerowicz noted that the deadline date for nominations for Senate representatives to
serve on the Presidential Selection Committee was December 29 and suggested that the
lack of nominations could have been due to the fact that many people are away during
the Christmas break.
Reports of Committees of Senate
CONTINUING STUDIES COMMITTEE
Proposed revision to the policy on the establishment of Certificate Programs at UBC
Dr. Vanderstoep, chair of the committee, presented the following report which had been
circulated:
Preamble
Continuing education at The University of B.C. is undertaken by Continuing Studies,
and by several Faculties who oversee discipline-specific programs. It is the purpose of
this document to amend and to amplify the definition of University Certificate
Programs approved by the University Senate in 1977, and to parallel the amended
policy for Diploma programs approved by Senate in March, 1994.
The 1977 policy was unclear about the role of Senate in the approval of Diploma and
Certificate programs, and focused specifically on programs that consisted entirely of
degree-credit courses. The amended policy for Diploma programs clarified that such
programs would consist primarily of degree-credit courses and would require Senate
approval. The revised policy for Certificate programs clarifies that these programs will
consist primarily of non-degree-credit courses and approval will rest with the
academic units and Faculties. This policy recognizes the unique nature of Certificate
programs as vehicles for offering programs consisting primarily of non-degree-credit
courses in areas of expertise not represented in UBC's degree-credit offerings. By
limiting approval to the departmental or Faculty level, the revised policy also responds
to the need for a high level of market-place responsiveness and flexibility in the
development of vocationally-oriented programs.
It is understood that both Faculties and Continuing Studies are mandated to develop
and offer Certificate programs; the degree to which the units collaborate is subject to
mutual agreement.
 Vancouver Senate 11298
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
We ask the Senate to approve the policy revision, subject to a review process to be set
five years after the date of approval.
In summary, the new policy differs from the 1977 document in two respects:
1. Certificate programs may now consist of university non-degree credit
(certificate-credit) courses. This change is based upon the rationale that
Continuing Studies and academic units are capable of developing academically
rigorous certificate-credit courses offered in a format compatible with the needs
of adult learners and employers.
2. Each program will be reported to the Senate Continuing Education Committee
and Senate through the regular reports of Continuing Studies. However, Senate
will not be involved in the formal approval of Certificate programs. To ensure
that academic standards and integrity are consistent with the University overall,
all programs must be approved by the academic units involved in their
development and offering, as well as by the Associate Vice-President of
Continuing Studies.
Guidelines for the Establishment of Certificate Programs (Amendments to 1977
Guidelines for the Establishment of Diploma and Certificate Programs)
I.    Definition of a Certificate Program
1) A certificate program should normally consist of specialized, non-degree credit
(certificate-credit) courses offered at a university level. It may also draw from
regular University degree-credit courses taken specifically for a certificate
program. Student assessment in certificate-credit courses should be consistent
with University standards.
2) The program of study should be equivalent to a minimum of one-half, and a
maximum of one-full year of university study.
3) Minimum admission requirements should be secondary school graduation with
some exceptions made for mature students. Normal admission requirements
may require some post-secondary education or professional work experience.
 Vancouver Senate 11299
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
II. Criteria for the Establishment of Certificate Programs
1) A program should be initiated only if the subject matter is appropriate to
university-level teaching and research. Programs may be established
collaboratively among academic units and Continuing Studies, and may include
collaborative partners external to the University.
2) A program should have clearly defined educational objectives and may be
oriented toward a career or professional standing; it should not be a set of
courses to screen candidates for a graduate degree.
3) A program should be developed and maintained under the guidance of an
advisory committee consisting of representatives (where appropriate) from
University departments and Faculties, Continuing Studies, and outside
professional bodies.
4) Program development including curriculum, evaluative procedures, admission
procedures and support services (such as appropriate library collections and
student services) will be undertaken by the advisory committee, subject to
approval by appropriate academic units.
III. Program Approval Process
1) The proposed certificate program is approved in principle by Deans or Unit
Heads of those Faculties or departments involved in the planning process, and
designated members of the respective Faculties or departments are assigned to
the program advisory committee.
2) Upon approval by the advisory committee, the program proposal is forwarded
to appropriate Deans or Department Heads and/or the Associate Vice President
of Continuing Studies for final approval.
IV. Program Administration
Implementing and maintaining appropriate administrative policies and procedures,
student support services, financial administration, and promotion and marketing are
the responsibility of the unit which has consented to administer the program.
Academic units are encouraged to work with Continuing Studies in this regard.
 Vancouver Senate 11300
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
V. Program Review Process
To ensure continuing quality and relevance, each program is subject to review by
Continuing Studies or the academic unit offering the program within a specified time
period not exceeding five years.
Dr. Vanderstoep l        That Senate adopt the revised guidelines for
Dr. Uegama i        tbe establishment of Certificate Programs as
outlined in items I, II, III, IV and V.
Dean Marchak drew attention to the proposed Program Approval Process, noting that the
Faculties are excluded from the approval process. She stated that in the case of academic
programs, rigorous reviews are performed by curriculum committees and Faculties with
regard to space, faculty, and other resources involved in introducing a new program. It
appeared from the proposal before Senate that no such procedures are to be followed in
the case of certificate programs, which may include credit courses. Dean Marchak
suggested that the proposal be referred back to the committee for further consideration
with a request that all Faculties be given an opportunity to comment.
Dean Marchak l        That the proposal be referred back to the
Dr. Shearer i        committee for further consideration.
Carried.
It was agreed that those members of Senate who wish to comment on the proposal should
address their comments to the chair of the committee, Dr. Vanderstoep.
CURRICULUM COMMITTEE (SEE APPENDIX)
Dr. Berger, chair of the committee, presented the following report:
 Vancouver Senate 11301
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences. Dr. Berger noted that references to "transfer of credit" in the
proposed Calendar entry under Exchange Programs should be deleted. He explained that
exchange students are registered at UBC and therefore "receive credit", they do not
transfer credit.
Faculty of Applied Science
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Applied Science, subject to editorial changes. Dr. Berger informed Senate that a proposal
outlined in the report to add a new course, ELEC 262, had been withdrawn. Any
references to ELEC 262 in the second year Electrical Engineering program should read
ELEC 261. He also noted that the proposal to drop MATH 254 from the second year
Geological Engineering program only applies to two of three options (Option 1 and
Option 3). MATH 254 remains in Applied Geophysics (Option 2).
Faculty of Arts
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of Arts,
subject to the words "pre-conquest" being changed to "pre-contact" in the description of
Fine Arts 262.
Faculty of Dentistry
The committee recommended approval of a proposal from the Faculty of Dentistry to
change the grading for OMSS 448 from pass/fail to percentage.
 Vancouver Senate 11302
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
Calendar statement on the new " case based " curriculum
The following Calendar statement, advising applicants and those considering application
to the Faculty of Dentistry of changes to the curriculum which will become effective
August 1997, had been circulated for information.
Commencing August 1997, the Faculty of Dentistry intends to implement a new "case
based" curriculum, the first two years being taken with students in the Faculty of
Medicine. The curriculum will stress self-directed student learning and problem
solving in seminars. Traditional lectures and laboratories will occupy only a small
amount of curriculum time.
Integration of the dental and medical curricula is a response to recommendations in
"Dental Education at the Crossroads: Challenges and Change", a report of the
National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine in the USA. The curriculum
would continue to meet accreditation requirements of the Commission on Dental
Accreditation of Canada.
In addition to the courses taken with medical students, it is likely that the first two
years also will include a course exclusively for dental students that will correlate basic
sciences to clinical dentistry. Currently, the third and fourth years of the new
curriculum also are under development.
The new curriculum may be considerably longer than the current curriculum. Further
details are available from the Dental Admissions Office.
Faculty of Forestry
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Forestry, subject to the designation for the Wood Products Processing Major being
changed from B.Sc. (Wood Products Processing) to B.Sc. (Forestry).
Faculty of Graduate Studies
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Graduate Studies, subject to editorial changes.
 Vancouver Senate 11303
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
Faculty of Medicine
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Medicine. Proposed changes to MEDG 410 had been withheld pending submission of a
similar change from the Faculty of Science for MICB 402 which is listed as the same
course. Dr. Berger informed Senate that this change had since been forwarded to Senate
under editorial changes and the committee therefore recommended approval of changes to
MEDG 410.
School of Rehabilitation Sciences
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the School of
Rehabilitation Sciences.
Editorial changes
Dr. Berger also presented a list of editorial changes, for information.
Dr. Randall drew attention to a Calendar statement contained in the submission from the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences to the effect that no further admissions to the Bachelor of
Landscape Architecture program will be accepted after September 1, 1996. He explained
that this proposal was contingent upon related changes being approved by the Faculty of
Graduate Studies. It was agreed that approval of the proposed Calendar statement be
withheld for the time being.
 Vancouver Senate 11304
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
In response to a query, the Registrar explained that many of the changes referred to by
the chair of the Curriculum Committee are in fact the legitimate outcome of the process of
scrutiny, and reflect the fact that the written material is prepared at the time the
submissions go to the Faculties. The amendments and changes suggested during the
Senate Curriculum Committee approval process are recommendations to Senate and
cannot therefore be incorporated in the material attached to the report without Senate
approval.
Dean Marchak drew attention to the International Resource Systems new study option in
the proposals from the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences stating that it contained a number
of options from the Faculty of Arts. She asked if the program contained enough options
to ensure that the Faculty of Arts was under no obligation to students taking the
International Resource Systems study option if they could not be accommodated in some
of the Arts courses listed in the proposal. Dean Richards stated that each department
involved had been consulted and had approved the proposed offerings. He felt that there
was sufficient flexibility in the program to avoid the problem anticipated by Dean
Marchak.
Dean McNeill asked for clarification of the proposed Calendar statement from the
Faculty of Dentistry alerting students to the fact that the new "case based" curriculum
may be considerably longer than the current curriculum. Dean Yen explained that the
length of the current program is four years but that the number of months used for study
within those four years could be expanded. The range being considered was anything
between four and five years using extra months within these years.
 Vancouver Senate 11305
Minutes of January 17,1996
Reports of Committees of Senate
In response to a query by Dr. Shearer, Dean Yen assured Senate that it was not the
intention that students enrolled in the existing program would be adversely affected by
the extended program.
In response to a query by Dean Marchak, Dean Richards explained that the former term
for "Cultural Diversity" was "breadth electives" and that the new term is a notation for a
block of courses to be chosen by students, in consultation with an advisor, from a wide
range of courses from around the University that will contribute to a student's
understanding of cultural diversity. It was pointed out that the accompanying footnote
did not appear to be correct. Dr. Berger said that this could be corrected and put through
as an editorial change.
Dr. Berger l        That the proposals of the Faculties of
Mr. A. Lau i       Agricultural Sciences (with the exception
of the statement on the Landscape Architecture
program), Applied Science, Arts,
Dentistry, Forestry, Graduate Studies,
Medicine, and the School of Rehabilitation
Sciences, be approved, subject to editorial
changes.
Carried.
Dean Binkley referred to the change in the designation for the Wood Products Processing
Major from B.Sc. (Wood Products Processing) to B.Sc. (Forestry), and informed Senate
that the Faculty will be examining the possibility of a uniform degree title for all
programs. If the Faculty is able to find a satisfactory uniform degree title other than B.Sc.
(Forestry), it would bring a proposal back to Senate to change the title.
 Vancouver Senate 11306

TRIBUTES COMMITTEE
Honorary B.Sc. (Pharm.) degrees
Dean McBride, chair of the committee, informed Senate that in celebration of the 50th
anniversary of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the Faculty wishes to offer
honorary B.Sc. (Pharm.) degrees to those persons who became members in good standing
of the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia (formerly the Pharmaceutical
Association of the Province of British Columbia) and who received their training in this
province prior to the granting of B.Sc. (Pharm.) degrees by The University of British
Columbia.
Dean McBride l        That all persons who became members in good
Dean McNeill i       standing of the College of Pharmacists of
British Columbia (formerly the Pharmaceutical
Association of the Province of British
Columbia) and who received their training in
this province prior to the granting of B.Sc.
(Pharm.) degrees by The University of British
Columbia, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences,
be eligible upon application or nomination to
be considered for the conferring of an
honorary B.Sc. (Pharm.) degree from The
University of British Columbia provided that
the applicant/nominee does not already possess
a B.Sc. (Pharm.) degree or its equivalent.
Carried.

PROPOSAL TO ESTABLISH A BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD RESEARCH CENTRE
Vice President Birch spoke briefly to a proposal to establish a Brain and Spinal Cord
Research Centre, an academic research centre in the Faculties of Medicine and Science in
partnership with the Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre.
 Vancouver Senate 11307
Minutes of January 17,1996
Faculties of Medicine and Science
Vice President Birch said that he had been asked by the Deans of the Faculties of
Medicine and Science to amend the composition of the Advisory Committee to include the
Coordinator of Health Sciences.
Dr. Birch i        That the proposal to establish a Brain and
Dean Hollenberg i        Spinal Cord Research Centre in the Faculties of
Medicine and Science in partnership with the
Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences
Centre be approved.
In response to a query by Mr. de Pfyffer, Dean Hollenberg stated that the McGeers are
among UBC's most prominent neuroscience researchers and will be an integral part of the
new centre as long they continue to do research at UBC.
On behalf of Dean Grace, Dr. Randall noted that Graduate Studies has a very active and
successful neuroscience program operating at the moment, involving students and faculty
from both Science and Medicine, and expressed the hope that there would be good
coordination between this group and the proposed centre.
Dr. Gilbert drew attention to the reference to the "Vancouver Hospital and Health
Sciences Centre", stating that the campus community should realize that the Vancouver
Hospital and Health Sciences Centre facility should not be confused with the John F.
McCreary Health Sciences Centre. He explained that the Vancouver Hospital and Health
Sciences Centre is part of VGH, not part of UBC and that the John F. McCreary Health
Sciences Centre embodies all of the health sciences centre buildings and activities. Dr.
Gilbert said that he wished to ensure that the University community remembers a
remarkable educator at UBC who was head of Paediatrics, Dean of Medicine and
Coordinator of Health Sciences.
 Vancouver Senate 11308
Minutes of January 17,1996
Calendar changes
The University Librarian, Dr. Patrick, expressed support for the proposal but was
concerned that the Library could have difficulty in supporting the research needed in such
a program. Dr. Patrick informed Senate that she had been informed by Margaret Price,
Acting Head of the Life Sciences Library, that last year 6000 dollars worth of journals
were cancelled and that it was probable that the same amount would be cancelled this
year. However, after speaking to Dean Hollenberg, Dr. Patrick said she was heartened by
his commitment that he and the Faculty of Medicine would join with the Library in
ensuring that adequate library resources are available to serve this program.
Mr. Brady noted that the initiative includes a commitment by the Vancouver Hospital and
Health Sciences Centre to raise half of the project's total goal of $28 million and asked
how the other $14 million is to be raised. Dean Hollenberg responded that this money
would be raised by the Faculty of Medicine through a fund-raising project which would
be endowed, and that the ongoing costs would be covered through the endowment. In
addition, he stated that the investigators will be applying to the Medical Research Council
for operating money.
The motion was
put and carried.
Calendar changes
The Registrar, Dr. Spencer, presented the following changes to the Calendar, for
information:
 Vancouver Senate 11309

Religious Holidays. The following statement, taken from the University Policy on
Religious Holidays, will be included in the Academic Regulations section of the
Calendar.
Religious Holidays
Recognizing the religious diversity of the UBC community, UBC permits students who
are scheduled to attend classes or write examinations on holy days of their religion to
notify their instructors in advance of a holy day they wish to observe by absenting
themselves from class or examination. Instructors will provide opportunity for such
students to make up work or examinations missed without penalty.
Students are required to give two weeks' notice of their intention to absent themselves
under the terms of the University Policy on Religious Holidays. They shall notify the
instructor of each course or, where this cannot be done, the Head or Director of the
unit concerned.
This addition was suggested by the Faculty of Education and has the support of the
Faculties of Arts and Science.
Student Discipline. The statement in Penalties, item 2 (Calendar, page 53) will be
amended to read (new wording in italics):
2.   Suspension from the University for a specified time, or indefinitely. Students
will not receive credit for courses taken at another institution during a
suspension.
This change clarifies the existing policy.

ACADEMIC ADVISING
Mr. Culhane stated that through a survey of students, the Campus Advisory Board on
Student Development had established that a great proportion of students are dissatisfied
with certain aspects of academic advising. Acting on the advice of the Senate Agenda
Committee, Mr. Culhane approached the office of the Vice President of Student and
Academic Services and received a commitment that there would be a forum on academic
advising on March 15. Mr. Culhane expressed the hope that members of Senate would
participate in this event and work together in an effort to resolve students' concerns on
this issue.
 Vancouver Senate 11310
Minutes of January 17,1996
Adjournment
In response to a query by Dr. Randall, Mr. Culhane stated that discussions would include
both graduate and undergraduate advising.
LIBRARY RESOURCES
In view of the extensive cutbacks being made by the Library, Dr. MacEntee asked
whether there were any safeguards to ensure that these cuts were not having a detrimental
impact on existing courses.
Dr. Patrick stated that the Library was working closely with the Faculties in selecting
what is to be cancelled. She stated that the Senate Library Committee is looking at
redesigning the scholarly communication system and intends to bring a proposal to Senate
that will address long term measures. In the meantime, however, approximately 5% of all
serials will have to be cancelled in 1996 and 1997.
Adjournment
The meeting adjourned at 9:10 p.m.
Next meeting
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, February 14, 1996.
