Minutes of December 14,1994
Reports OF COMMITTEES OF SENATE
Faculty of Education - clarification of Faculty authority to terminate a practicum
The committee recommended approval of the following change in the Calendar statement
concerning the authority of the Faculty of Education to terminate a practicum:
Candidates who begin the Extended Practicum (Education 329, 418, 495, or 496) are
not permitted to drop this course from their records. When, in the judgment of the
Faculty of Education or the schools hosting their practica, students do not complete
their practica satisfactorily, and who qualify for neither a supplemental practicum (see
Supplemental Examinations) nor a deferred practicum (see "Deferred Examinations"
in the General Information section) will be assigned a failing grade and will be
required to discontinue or to withdraw from the program.
Dr. Will l        That change in the Calendar statement
Dr. Cook i        concerning the authority of the Faculty of
Education to terminate a practicum be
approved.
Dr. Kirkness suggested that the words "SFaculty of Education or the schoolsS" should
read "SFaculty of Education and the schoolsS". Dean Sheehan agreed with the suggestion,
stating that when a student is withdrawn from a practicum it is a decision made in
concert with the principal of the school, the cooperating teacher and the faculty involved
with the student.
The motion, with the change
noted, was put and carried.

Dr. Isaacson J        approved.
Faculty of Arts

1. That the Department of Russian and Slavic Languages and Literatures be
dissolved as of June 30, 1995.
2. That the separate Departments of Classics and Religious Studies be dissolved as
of June 30, 1995, and that a combined Department of Classical, Near Eastern
and Religious Studies (CNRS) be established as of July 1, 1995, to include all

well as all courses and programs of both departments.
 Vancouver Senate
Minutes of December 14,1994
10950
Faculty OF ARTS
Dean Marchak
Dr. Grace
That the Department of Russian and Slavic
Languages and Literatures be dissolved as of
June 30, 1995.
In speaking to the motion, Dean Marchak explained that the Russian language courses
were being maintained, and noted that there had been an increase in the number of
students taking Russian courses at the 100 and 200 level. The Dean also informed Senate
that the Faculty would be maintaining a minor in Russian language. In response to a
query, the Dean confirmed that there had been no terminations and that the faculty
members concerned had been assigned to other departments.
The motion was
put and carried.
Dean Marchak l        That the separate Departments of Classics and
Dr. Grace i        Religious Studies be dissolved as of June 30,
1995, and that a combined Department of
Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies
(CNRS) be established as of July 1, 1995, to
include all members of the previous two
departments of Classics and Religious Studies,
as well as all courses and programs of both
departments.
Dean Marchak explained that the merging of these two departments was underway
before Senate's restructuring proposals were approved; the reasons being that both
departments are small and that there is considerable interaction between them in terms of
research and shared courses.
The motion was
put and carried.
 Vancouver Senate 10951
Minutes of December 14,1994
The W. Maurice Young Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research Centre
The W. Maurice Young Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research Centre
A proposal that the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research Centre be named
"The W. Maurice Young Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research Centre" had
been circulated. It was explained in the material circulated that Maurice Young's
contributions to the Centre go well beyond his extremely generous and continuing
financial support. His financial sponsorship allowed the Centre to commence its activities
with the comforting knowledge that there was ample funding for at least four years of
operation. This certainty of funding allowed the Centre to develop both longer term and
shorter term research plans, and in the process map out a comprehensive approach to
research, policy and community outreach. Moreover, his financial backing and his ability
to obtain for the Centre strong links to and support from the business community, were
key elements in the Centre's receiving the $2,125 million Major Collaborative Research
Grant from SSHRCC.
It was felt that Maurice Young's diverse and fundamental contributions to the
Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research Centre should be recognized through
naming the Centre "The W. Maurice Young Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital
Research Centre".
Dr. Birch i        That Senate approve the recommendation that
Dean Goldberg J        the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital
Research Centre be named " The W. Maurice
Young Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital
Research Centre".
Carried.
 Vancouver Senate 10952
Minutes of December 14,1994
Disestablishment of the Chair in Audiology and Speech Sciences
Disestablishment of the Chair in Audiology and Speech Sciences
It was explained in the material circulated that Senate approved the establishment of the
Chair at its meetings of December 11, 1991 and September 16, 1992. At the time the
Chair was approved, $204,000 (including provincial match) had been raised for the
endowment. It is now thought to be unlikely that the minimum $1,000,000 necessary to
support a Chair will be raised. The expectation is that $700,000 will be raised and the
income from that endowment will be used to support a Professorship rather than a Chair.
Dr. Birch i        That the Chair in Audiology and Speech
Dr. Gilbert i        Sciences be disestablished.
Carried.
Calendar - Exchange Student Category
Senate was informed that in order to reflect the approval of Canadian student exchange
programs and the approval of exchange programs in the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration, the definition of the "Exchange" category will be changed to:
"Exchange: a visiting student studying at The University of British Columbia under a
Senate approved student exchange program and enrolled in studies for transfer to a
degree program at another university."
Academic Year 1995-96
A draft of the section of the Academic Year for inclusion in the Calendar had been
circulated for information.
Other Business
READING BREAK
Dr. Williams referred to the concern expressed by the Board of Governors that the
examination schedule might extend into May, and the motion moved at the previous
 Vancouver Senate 10953
Minutes of December 14,1994
Other Business
meeting that this matter be referred to the Senate Committee on Academic Policy for
further examination. Dr. Williams stated that the Registrar's Office had looked at this
problem whether or not the examination period extends into May depends upon the date
on which we being the second and the time at which Easter occurs. The next time this
poses a problem is in the year 2002. The committee did not propose to make any changes
to the policies to accommodate such a future occurrence.
For the benefit of those not familiar with the extent to which the committee had
examined this problem, Dr. Williams stated that in the previous Senate the committee had
looked at the examination periods in the two terms and had brought a motion to the first
meeting of the current Senate recommending that the lecture and examination period for
each term be equal. At the same time, documentation had been circulated on a selected
group of Canadian universities for a particular year, chosen at random. Within that group
there were three universities, Toronto, Queen's and Concordia, whose examination
schedules for the year chosen extended into May. It did not appear to be a problem for
them. Subsequently, a subcommittee of the Academic Policy Committee was established
which made two recommendations basically giving Senate a choice; the consequences of
both recommendations being made clear at the time they were brought to Senate. Senate
therefore made its decision based on the information presented. Dr. Williams suggested
that the alternatives for the particular years that pose a problem, such as abolishing the
week-long break, to shorten the length of the lecture period, or to shorten the length of
the examination period which had recently been shortened for the first time, were not
academically sound options. Dr. Williams stated
 Vancouver Senate 10954
Minutes of December 14,1994
Adjournment
that he wished to assure Senate and the Board of Governors that the Academic Policy
Committee does not reach its decisions in haste, or without due deliberation or broad
consultation across the university. He suggested that it was unlikely that anyone, in some
flash of inspiration, was going to come up with a modification.
ELECTRO-MECHANICAL DESIGN ENGINEERING PROGRAM (B.A.SC. AND M.ENG.)
Referring to the Electro-Mechanical Design Engineering Program, dealt with in the report
of the Curriculum Committee, President Strangway observed that this was the first
combined five year Bachelor's/Master's program.
Dean Meisen noted that this was the first program of this type in Canada. He stated that
in some of the professional disciplines there is so much pressure on the programs that it
could eventually lead to the Master's degree being the first professional degree rather than
the baccalaureate degree. He noted that the number of credits that make up a particular
degree in engineering, for example, far outweigh the typical number of credits in many of
the standard four-year programs. The Dean said that, in some sense, this was an
experiment which was well justified given the requirements of the market place for
students. He stated that he would inform Senate, periodically, on the progress of this
venture.
Adjournment
The meeting adjourned at 8.45 p.m.
Next meeting
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, January 18, 1995.
