 Vancouver Senate 10484
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
Dr. Will reminded Senate that in April of last year Senate was informed that the
Committee was in the process of considering a proposal to reduce the number of courses
used to calculate the gradepoint average. The Committee subsequently consulted
Faculties, Schools and Departments before arriving at the recommendations outlined
above. Dr. Will explained that one of the reasons for the proposed change is that the
province could shortly be moving towards a central registry where students would register
at a central place rather than at the university they wished to attend. It was therefore
necessary to bring the university's admission requirements into line with those of other
B.C. universities. He noted that UBC was the only university in Canada that uses nine
course to calculate the gradepoint average. Dr. Will stated that another reason for the
proposed change is that studies suggest that four properly chosen courses are just as good
a predictor of performance as the nine courses used by UBC. All Faculties and Schools,
with the exception of the Faculty of Applied Science, have agreed that admission will be
determined on the basis of four specified Grade 12 courses. The four courses are restricted
to the government examinable courses which are set and marked by the ministry. Applied
Science has been administered differently in the past in the sense that they have insisted on
eight subjects; four grade 12 courses and the corresponding Grade 11 courses. B.C. school
principals were informed of the proposed changes by letter and although very few
responses were received, no-one was opposed to what the university is trying to do.
 Vancouver Senate 10485
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
Dr. Will l        That the Senate approve the proposed new
Dr. Shearer i        admission policy as outlined.
Ms. Brady drew attention to the list of approved language 11 courses and noted that
some Native Indian languages had been recognized. Ms. Brady asked if sign language
could also be recognized.
Dr. Will responded that any additions to the courses listed would have to be proposed by
a Faculty or School and submitted to the Committee for consideration and
recommendation to Senate.
Dr. Dennison raised a query as to whether there was any indication that using eight
subjects was a better predictor than four in calculating gradepoint averages for admission
to the Faculty of Applied Science.
The Registrar stated that the engineering program admitted relatively few students and
was highly competitive. Applicants for admission to the engineering program had higher
gradepoint averages than those applying to any other program that can be entered directly
from Grade 12. Because letter grades are used, the number of gradepoint averages that
students can have is limited and is smaller with four subjects than with eight. This makes
it more difficult to get close to an enrolment target with four subjects than with eight. It is
hoped that within the next two years the secondary schools will supply percentage grades
to the common application system rather than letter grades. That might satisfy some of
the concerns of the Faculty since that would make it easier to admit a number of students
that is close to the enrolment quota.
 Vancouver Senate 10486
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
Dr. Will pointed out that the Faculty of Applied Science had specified all four courses so
it was not just a matter of using screening subjects to make sure that students are capable
of operating at a certain level. He stated that the courses were very substantial
prerequisites, and that by using both the grade 11 and the grade 12 subjects the Faculty
would have greater assurance that students will perform well in engineering.
Mr. Woo stated that although he understood that the new admission requirements would
streamline the admission process, he felt that it would affect the background and calibre
of students coming to UBC whose main focus would now be on the four subjects required
for admission rather than on obtaining a broader based education, which could be
detrimental to such students in the long run.
Dr. Birch suggested that counting the gradepoint average on a more limited number of
courses should have the effect of allowing students a wider range of choices in the
remaining courses rather than having to take an extra academic subject or two in case
they fail one of the nine or ten courses currently needed for admission.
Dr. Will stated that one of the consequences of the existing system which requires both
Grade 11 and Grade 12 courses, is that many students thinking that they may not get into
UBC repeat Grade 11 courses to increase their chances of admission. The new system
would presumably reduce the problem of students taking courses for the wrong reasons.
 Vancouver Senate 10487
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
Speaking in support of the proposal, Mr.McNulty, a school counsellor, endorsed the
proposal stating that it was long overdue. He said that the proposed changes would bring
UBC into line with the rest of Canada and that both students and schools would soon
adapt. He also noted that because of the tremendous overload in the schools students in
some schools are not allowed to repeat courses. He did not think that the new
requirements would pose any particular problem since most students already take six or
more academic courses.
The motion was
put and carried.
c)   English Language Proficiency Requirement
Dr. Will explained that UBC was out of line with other Canadian universities in what it
requires as an admission standard for people whose first language is not English. He
stated that the current Calendar statement on TOEFL requirements applies only to
international students and that there is no comparable English test for students domiciled
in Canada who might have problems with English because it is their second language. The
Committee therefore recommended approval of the following statement on English
proficiency requirements for inclusion in the 1993-94 Calendar:
1.   That a general statement on English proficiency requirements be included in the
1993-94 Calendar as follows:
ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY REQUIREMENT
As English is the medium of instruction at the University of British
Columbia all applicants, regardless of country of origin or of citizenship
status, will be required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language
prior to admission.
 Vancouver Senate 10488
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
2. Delete the current entry/reference to English proficiency included under
ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY, section F: INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS.
3. English language proficiency may be demonstrated by any one of the following:
• 5 years of full-time education in English in Canada or the equivalent in
another country where English is the principal language. Such education
must include BC Grade 12 or equivalent and can be in a combination of
secondary and post-secondary education.
• Successful completion of the equivalent of 5 years of full-time instruction in
a school/institution in Canada in which the major language of instruction is
other than English but where the level of English proficiency required is
equivalent to that in English language schools/institutions in Canada. (This
will include applicants from CEGEP's who have completed English as a first
language)
• A grade of 80% or better on the Provincial Examination portion of BC
English 12 or English Literature 12 or the equivalent; or a grade of 6 or 7
on the International Baccalaureate Higher Level English course; or a grade
of 5 on the Advanced Placement English (Language Composition: Literature
and Composition).
• Successful completion of 6 credits of post-secondary English studies for
which UBC gives transfer credit.
• Graduation from a recognized degree program at an accredited university at
which English is the primary language of instruction and in a country where
English is the principal language.
• A score of 570 minimum (550 for the Faculty of Graduate Studies) on the
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Some programs have a
higher minimum, e.g. 580 for programs in the Faculty of Arts. A score of at
least 90 on the Michigan English Assessment Battery (MELAB). TOEFL or
MELAB tests taken more than two years prior to application for admission
will not be considered.
Dr. Will l        That the recommendations of the Admissions
Dr. Shearer i        Committee concerning the English Language
Proficiency requirement be approved.
In response to a query, Dr. Will confirmed that the proposed statement did not apply to
the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Dean Grace explained that in the case of Graduate
Studies, students who come from the United States or Canada are not required to have
any additional test of English. If they come from a series of
 Vancouver Senate 10489
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
recognized countries which are English speaking and they have graduated from
universities in those countries, they are not expected to write TOEFL tests. However, if
they come from any other countries, they are asked to take the TOEFL test and get a
minimum of 550, which is a Faculty minimum, although many departments apply a
higher number.
Dr. Will confirmed that the proposed Calendar statement would include a note to the
effect that the requirement does not apply to Graduate Studies applicants.
In response to a query concerning the admission of Ritsumeikan University students to
classes, Dr. Will explained that the statement addressed the basis on which students may
be admitted to degree programs. He noted that Ritsumeikan students were not at UBC for
the purpose of taking degree programs.
Mr. Baumber drew attention to what he felt was a low TOEFL score for the Faculty of
Graduate Studies, and suggested that since many of the teaching assistants are from that
Faculty it was important that they also have a good command of the English language.
Dr. Will stated that the question of TOEFL scores was a separate issue which could be
raised in another context if anyone so wished.
The motion was
put and carried.
d)   Graduate Studies - addition to Academic Standing and Readmission
The Committee recommended approval of the following proposed addition to the
Calendar concerning Academic Standing and Readmission:
 Vancouver Senate 10490
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
A student in any graduate program who is required to withdraw will not normally
be eligible to apply for readmission to The University of British Columbia for at
least one year.
After one year, students who have been required to withdraw from a graduate
program may be admitted to a different program in the Faculty of Graduate
Studies provided they meet all the admissions requirements in effect for that
program at the time they apply. Such applications must be accompanied by a
statement from the department which recommended withdrawal outlining the
reasons for which the student was required to withdraw.
Students who have been required to withdraw from a graduate program may also
apply to be readmitted to the same program after at least one year has passed from
the effective date of withdrawal. Compelling evidence must be presented that a
more successful outcome is likely if the student is readmitted.
All cases for readmission must be reviewed and approved by the Dean of Graduate
Studies. Students required to withdraw from a graduate program more than once
are not eligible to be considered for admission to any program in the Faculty of
Graduate Studies.
Dr. Will l        That the proposed addition to the Calendar
Dean Grace i        concerning Academic Standing and
Readmission be approved.
Carried.
CURRICULUM COMMITTEE (SEE APPENDIX)
Dr. Sobrino, Chair of the Committee, presented the report.
Faculty of Applied Science
The Committee recommended approval, retroactively to September 1992, of a proposal to
add 3 credits of Complementary Studies Electives, bringing the total credit load to 37 for
the first year. While recommending approval, the Committee issued the following
statement concerning the credit load of students in the Faculty of Applied Science:
 Vancouver Senate 10491
Minutes of January 13,1993
Reports of Committees of Senate
The Senate Curriculum Committee wishes to express its ongoing concern about the
burden on Applied Science students compared to that on students in other
Faculties and on students in engineering Faculties at universities such as McGill
and M.I.T.; and
The Committee further urges the Faculty of Applied Science to give serious
attention to what can be done to lighten the burden on Applied Science students in
the future.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
The Committee recommended approval (with the exception of FINA 599 which has been
withdrawn by Fine Arts), subject to the following:
• PLNT 508 - delete "Discussion of current research into the..." from the first
sentence of the description.
• CHML 566 - delete first sentence of the description: "Current research in the
interface between engineering and biology."
• MMAT 575 - delete everything after "...the heat treatment of steels".

been withdrawn for the time being.
Other business
MEMBERSHIP IN THE VANCOUVER BOARD OF TRADE
Dr. Resnick asked if it was the policy of the University to pay for individual memberships
in the Vancouver Board of Trade.
The President responded that some units do pay for individual memberships out of their
budgets but that they were not University memberships.
 Vancouver Senate 10494
Minutes of January 13,1993
Other business
Dr. Resnick stated that the reason he was raising the subject was because there had been a
fair amount of public debate in recent weeks regarding changes to the B.C. labour laws.
Dr. Resnick expressed concern that University funds were being used to pay for
memberships in an organization which is a very powerful lobbying group and which is
taking very high profile positions of a confrontational nature vis-a-vis the provincial
government and other social actions.
Dr. Resnick asked whether it was in fact serving the interests of the University to be
associated in so direct a fashion with an organization whose function, by definition, is to
take high profile and controversial positions which may seem to imply University
involvement or endorsement, and which may also compromise, in this instance, the
University's relationship with the provincial government.
Several opinions were expressed both in favour of and against membership in the
Vancouver Board of Trade. Some members felt that in times of fiscal restraint and rising
tuition fees it was a misappropriation of University funds to pay for such memberships.
Others felt that because of fiscal restraints such memberships were invaluable in that they
provided members with a wide range of contacts in the community which could result in
considerable donations to the University. On the other hand, it was suggested that there
were many ways in which contacts could be made without cost to the University. It was
noted that the Vancouver Board of Trade had sponsored and promoted UBC and Simon
Fraser in their 75th and 25th anniversaries in order to promote secondary education and
it was therefore felt that there were some very positive reasons for belonging to such
organizations.
 Vancouver Senate 10495
Minutes of January 13,1993
Report of the Tributes Committee (in camera)
In summary, it was generally agreed that there were advantages to memberships in
community organizations, although some members did not feel that the University should
fund such memberships. The main objection in this case appeared to be the recent
lobbying position taken by the Vancouver Board of Trade on socio-political issues, and its
possible reflection on those associated with the Board.
SIGN LANGUAGE
In response to a query, Dr. Will stated that the Admissions Committee would consider the
question of how to deal with the suggestion that sign language be added to the list of
approved Grade 11 courses.
