Chair's remarks and related questions
Dr. Levine drew attention to page 11855 stating that the amendment should read: "That
the proposed statement be amended by adding the words "(with no failed courses) or

The motion, with the above
correction, was put and carried.
Chair's remarks and related questions
There were no remarks from the Chair.
President's Report on the Visioning Process - Green Paper
In the absence of the President, Dr. Rosengarten presented the report. He stated the the
Green Paper, the first draft of the vision, had been well received, with some reservations.
Many were supportive of the goals of the document while at the same time suggesting
strengthening in one area or another. Dr. Rosengarten highlighted some of the comments
made during discussions at the Chan Centre. He invited members of Senate to take
advantage of the opportunity to register their impressions prior to continuation of
discussion at the next meeting of Senate. Dr. Rosengarten responded to questions and
comments from members of Senate and stated that he would relay them to the President.
Pacific Games III
Dr. Maria Klawe, Vice President Student and Academic Services, was invited to speak to
Senate about a proposal seeking UBC's support in principle and the use of its facilities for
the Pacific Games which are to be held in Vancouver on June 16-29, 2001. In highlighting
advantages, concerns, such as security, and possible disadvantages of the proposal, Dr.
Klawe made it clear that although UBC had been asked to participate, it had not made a
commitment to be a part of the Pacific Games. Dr. Klawe explained that the
 Vancouver Senate 11868
Minutes of April 15,1998	
From the Board of Governors
decision to participate has to be made by the Board of Governors but that the process to
be followed is very different to the process followed for APEC. The process will involve
wide consultation with the UBC community and the surrounding community before a
decision is reached. Dr. Klawe made reference to a document submitted to the Board of
Governors by the Pacific Games Organizing Committee requesting the use of various
university facilities. She stated that this document was the basis for negotiations and that
UBC does not have to agree to all of the requests. She said many issues need to be
resolved before a decision is made, such as the impact on traffic, environment, political
issues, loss of revenue for housing and parking, use of volunteers etc. Dr. Klawe noted
that the University has had several meetings with a variety of different groups to inform
people and to provide them with the opportunity to express their opinions as to whether
they think the University should agree to participate. An opportunity for further input
will be provided at an Open House to be held on April 28th at 7:00 p.m. in the Student
Union Building. Dr. Klawe stated that a recommendation as to whether to proceed in
principle will be presented to the Board of Governors at the May 21, 1998 meeting. Dr.
Klawe responded to questions raised, stating that she would appreciate receiving any
further comments that members of Senate may have concerning the III Pacific Games.
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations - subject, where
applicable, to the proviso that none of the programs be implemented without formal
reference to the President, and that the Deans and Heads concerned with new
programs be asked to indicate the space requirements, if any, of such new programs.

Senate Nominating Committee Membership
In response to a query, Vice President McBride confirmed that the Board of Governors
had approved the Naming Policy put forward by the Joint Board/Senate Naming Policy
Committee.
Senate Nominating Committee Membership
In accordance with established procedures, student vacancies on the Senate Nominating
Committee were declared.
Members were informed that a call for nominations to fill these vacancies would be sent
to all members of Senate and that nominations would remain open until the May 20,
1998 Senate meeting. If more than two nominations are received an election will be held
at the May meeting.
Correspondence
The Chair informed Senate that letters of thanks had been received from the families of
the late The Honourable Nathan T. Nemetz and the late Mr. Donovan F. Miller for the
memorial minutes prepared in their honour.
Academic Policy
Dr. Schutz, chair of the committee, presented the following reports.
EXAMINATION HARDSHIPS
The committee recommended approval of the following statement for inclusion in the
Calendar immediately following the section "Senate Policy on Examinations":
 Vancouver Senate 11870
Minutes of April 15,1998	
Academic Policy
An examination hardship is considered to be 3 or more exams scheduled within a 24
hour period. Any student with an examination hardship should speak with the
instructors in the courses concerned to see if a schedule which avoids the hardship can
be arranged. If no arrangement can be made to avoid the hardship, the student should
contact the Dean of the Faculty in which the student is registered. It is the
responsibility of the Dean to ensure that arrangements are made to avoid the hardship.
Dr. Schutz stated that students are often left to their own devices to resolve examination
hardships. In an attempt to remedy this situation, the committee recommended that
students approach the instructor to see if the examination conflict can be resolved. If not,
they would then approach the Dean or the Dean's designate who must ensure that
arrangements are made to resolve the problem.
Dr. Schutz l        That the following statement on Examination
Dr. Gilbert i       Hardships be approved:
An examination hardship is considered
to be 3 or more exams scheduled within
a 24 hour period. Any student with an
examination hardship should speak
with the instructors in the courses
concerned to see if a schedule which
avoids the hardship can be arranged. If
no arrangement can be made to avoid
the hardship, the student should contact
the Dean of the Faculty in which the
student is registered. It is the
responsibility of the Dean to ensure that
arrangements are made to avoid the
hardship.
In the discussion that followed, opinions were expressed that this was not a viable
solution to the problem. It was suggested that the problem could be resolved if UBC were
to publish an examination schedule at the same time as the registration guide. The
Registrar responded that he had made enquiries into such a system. He
 Vancouver Senate 11871
Minutes of April 15,1998	
Academic Policy
gave various reasons why UBC is unable to construct a schedule that guarantees to
students that if they register in courses that do not conflict they will get an exam schedule
that is conflict free. The Registrar stated that there are a number of issues to be resolved
and that perhaps in three or four years from now UBC will be able to have that kind of
schedule but at present the consensus among the advisory committee that looked into this
is that it is not the time to do it.
Dean Neuman spoke against the motion stating that the policy downloads onto Faculties
situations that will create a great of work. The policy, she said, is necessitated largely by
the fact that UBC does not schedule courses in any organized or coherent way and
therefore cannot publish an examination schedule that lets students decide whether they
want to take one exam or four exams in a day. She suggested that a resolution of the
problem of classroom scheduling should be made an immediate mandate for the
Registrar's Office and that the University should stop patching up the problems of
timetabling.
Dean Isaacson also spoke against the motion, although he was in favour of the intent to
try to avoid examination hardships. He compared the problem to that of religious
holidays where students approach the instructor or the head or director of the unit
concerned and suggested that an analogous situation would be preferable, particularly in
the case of graduate students where the Dean of the Faculty is very remote from the
activities of the departments. He pointed out that Deans do not have the power to adjust
exams and schedules in the same way that the Registrar does so it would be very difficult
for them to assume the responsibility suggested.
 Vancouver Senate
Minutes of April 15,15
11872
Academic Policy
In amendment:
Dean Isaacson
Mr. Kondopulos
Dr. Berger
Dr. Bluman
That the motion be amended to read "should
contact the head or director of the unit" and
"responsibility of the head or director to
attempt to make arrangements to avoid the
hardship."
That the proposal be referred back to the
committee for further thought and possible
changes.
Carried.
WITHDRAWAL FROM COURSES
Dr. Schutz l
Dr. M. Thompson J
That the words "subject to approval by the
appropriate faculty or school" be deleted from
the regulation on withdrawal from courses so
that it reads as follows:
Students may withdraw from courses in
which they are registered at any time up
to the end of the sixth week of class for
courses which are offered in a single
term, and of the twelfth week for
courses which span two terms.
Withdrawals will be noted on the
academic record by a standing of 'W.
Such standings will not be included in
computing averages.
It was explained in the material circulated that the requirement that a student receive
approval (from an academic advisor) in order to withdraw from a course is perceived as
an unnecessary step. It causes considerable extra administrative work for the faculties, as
well as inconvenience to the student. In practice, approval is almost always given.
The motion was
put and carried.
 Vancouver Senate 11873
Minutes of April 15,1998	
Academic Policy
DEFINITION OF "FULL-TIME" STATUS FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
In December 1997, a motion that the definition and uses of "full-time" and "part-time'
status for undergraduate students at the University be reviewed to ensure that they are
uniform, consistent, and appropriate for all applicable purposes, and that they are
equitable, to the greatest possible extent, for all students, was referred to the Senate
Academic Policy Committee. In response, the committee made five recommendations.
Dr. Schutz l        That a standard program of study be defined
Dean Isaacson J        as 30 credits in a Winter Session for all
undergraduate students.
Carried.
Dr. Schutz l        That 30 credits should be used as the basis for
Mr. Brady i        all calculations of undergraduate full-time
equivalent enrolment.
Carried.
Dr. Schutz l        That any undergraduate student who is taking
Dr. Gilbert i       at ^east 24 credits in a Winter Session be
classified as a full-time student.
It was noted in the material circulated that this policy would not apply to the Government
Student Loans Programs, nor to the University-based Financial Need Programs. The
Awards Office has shown that reducing the number of credits necessary for eligibility for
student loans could result in a significant increase in total student debt.
The motion was
put and carried.
 Vancouver Senate
Minutes of April 15,15
11874
Admissions Committee
Dr. Schutz
Dr. Gilbert
That Senate instruct the Faculties to review
those regulations which define, either explicitly
or implicitly, a full or standard course load for
an undergraduate student to be more than 30
credits, and to report back to the committee by
October 1st with a rationale for these
requirements.
Carried.
Dr. Schutz
Dr. Gilbert
In amendment:
That Senate instruct the Faculties to review
their requirements for designations such as
"Dean's Honour Roll", and to report back to
the committee by October 1st with a rationale
where the requirement is other than a
minimum average of 80% for 27 credits with
no failed courses in a Winter Session.
Dr. Bluman
Dr. Berger
That the 80% be changed to 82% to be
consistent with the policy on eligibility for
awards.
Carried.
The motion, as amended,
was put and carried.
Admissions Committee
Dr. Harrison, chair of the committee, presented the report.
FACULTY OF SCIENCE
The committee recommended approval of the following admission requirements for the
Integrated Sciences Program (ISP).
Students will be admitted on the basis of:
•    fulfilment of the requirements for promotion to third-year standing in the Faculty
of Science as described in the Calendar
 Vancouver Senate 118 75
Minutes of April 15,1998	
Admissions Committee
• a statement of academic goals
• a proposal for the courses that will be completed for graduation
• a rationale for the choice of these courses, emphasizing the integrative nature of
the program, and
• past academic performance
Dr. Harrison i        That the admission requirements for the
Dr. Berger J       Integrated Sciences Program (ISP), be
approved.
Dr. Williams noted that applications for Teacher and Learning Enhancement funding
have been submitted and asked if funding would be available in time to implement the
program in September 1998. Dean Measday responded that some funding had been
received from TLE and stated that the Faculty of Science will also support the budgetary
requirements for this program.
The motion was
put and carried.
FACULTY OF EDUCATION - REVISED ADVANCEMENT REGULATION
The committee recommended approval of the following addition to the Calendar
statement on Advancement:
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 she or he is considered to be unsuited to proceed with the study or practice
of teaching.
Dr. Harrison explained that the statement is parallel to statements that currently exist in
the Calendar for many Faculties.
 Vancouver Senate 11876
Minutes of April 15,1998	
Admissions Committee
Dr. Harrison i        That the following addition to the Calendar
Dr. Slonecker J       statement on Advancement in the Faculty of
Education be approved:
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 she or he is considered to be unsuited to proceed with the study or practice of
teaching.
Dr. Harrison stated that although the committee agreed to recommend approval of the
proposed statement, concerns had been raised about the use of the word "unsuited", and
the committee suggested that perhaps faculties with similar statements should be asked
how these various statements have been implemented, particularly with regard to appeals
and how they are dealt with.
Some members of Senate agreed that the word "unsuited" ought to be defined, if possible,
while others cited occurrences which clearly rendered a student unsuitable to continue.
Dr. May stated that the reason the School of Nursing has a similar statement is that it is
required by Provincial Statute to certify that a student is fit for professional practice.
After further discussion, the
motion was put and carried.
J
 Vancouver Senate 11877
Minutes of April 15,1998	
Admissions Committee
PROPOSAL FOR THE CREATION OF A UBC-SFU-UVIC-UNBC CALCULUS
EXAMINATION CERTIFICATE
Dr. Harrison explained that the purpose of the proposal is to award successful students a
Calculus Examination Certificate. He stressed that this is not a certificate program. He
stated that it was an inexpensive way of acknowledging a student's prior learning and
giving students an incentive.
Dr. Harrison i        That the proposal to create a UBC-SFU-UVIC-
Dr. Berger J        UNBC Calculus Examination Certificate be
approved.
Carried.
ENROLMENT QUOTAS
See APPENDIX A.
A revised list of 1998 enrolment quotas for students new to program was circulated at the
meeting.
Dr. Harrison i        That Senate adopt the proposed 1998
Dr. Berger J        enrolment quotas for students new to program
(domestic).
On behalf of the committee, Dr. Harrison expressed thanks to Vice President McBride for
his willingness to enter into discussions with the university Ad Hoc Committee on
Enrolment Planning.
Dr. Harrison noted that one of the big differences this year is that the increase in
enrolment of approximately 2%, which the Ministry is asking UBC to take, actually
brings with the students a sizable amount of money in addition to their fees.
 Vancouver Senate
Minutes of April 15,15
11878
Curriculum Committee
In response to a query by Mr. Brady, Vice President McBride stated that the University
was being funded for the total number of F.T.E's in the system, which, by the University's
projections, will be approximately 24,602.
After further discussion, the
motion was put and carried.
Extension of meeting
A motion to extend the meeting
was put and carried.
