Dean McNeill J        of Senate for the Session 1991-92, having been
circulated, be taken as read and adopted.
It was noted that under Chairman's Remarks on p.10169, "... the President of British
Columbia ..." should read "... the President of The University of British Columbia ...". It
was also noted that on p. 10209, Faculty of Science, English Requirement, the second
paragraph "All students ... LPI examination." should be deleted, and on page 10171 in
the

first paragraph after the motion, "... 12 credits to 6 credits ..." should read: "6 credits to
3 credits..." and "...a basic 12 credit requirement..." should read "...a basic 6 credit
requirement...". Attention was also drawn to page 10201 and the addition of Nursing
302 as a prerequisite for Nursing 303, and it was noted that Nursing 302 is for registered
nurses only.
The motion, with the
amendments noted,
was put and carried.
Business Arising from the Minutes
UNIVERSITY RESIDENCES (P.10181)
The Agenda Committee recommended that Dr. Elder's motion concerning university
residences be referred to the Academic Policy Committee for advice.
Dr. Elder stated that she would like to move the motion.
Dr. Elder l        Whereas the introduction to University life for
Dr.Cook j        a number of students is through the student
residences, it is therefore the obligation of the
University to make certain that the living
conditions foster and do not detract from the
academic life and respect for individuals and
individual values, and it is the particular
obligation of Senate to foster the academic life
of the University;
be it moved that a committee be named to
enquire into the academic atmosphere of the
University residences and the measures taken
for their improvement.
 Vancouver Senate 10213
Minutes of January 15,1992
Business Arising from the Minutes
The committee must report to Senate in
particular on:
1. What measures have been taken to
improve the atmosphere in residences
following the disagreeableness revealed
in the report of the Committee on
Student Appeals on Academic
Discipline?
2. What training housing advisers have
and how they are selected?
3. What continuing steps might be taken
to improve the quality of academic life
in the student residences?
Following a brief
discussion, the motion
was put and carried.
Chairman's remarks and related questions
President Strangway referred Senate to the following letter that the Chair of the Board of
Governors had sent to the Honourable Robert de Cotret, Secretary of State for Canada, in
support of a resolution of Senate urging the government to rescind the 3% fee imposed on
Canada Student Loans by the Department of Secretary of State for Canada:
"The Board of Governors at its meeting on Thursday, November 21, 1991,
received advice from the University Senate that it had unanimously passed a
resolution requesting that President David W. Strangway as the Chair of Senate
write to you to urge that the 3 % fee imposed on Canada Student Loans by the
Department of Secretary of State for Canada be rescinded. Vice President K. D.
Srivastava has written to you on behalf of President Strangway, and a reply from
Mr. Douglas Robertson was received a few days ago.
 Vancouver Senate 10214
Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
The University is conscious of the escalating costs of administering student aid
programs. We are also acutely aware of the increasing cost of post-secondary
education for students and that, as Mr. Robertson points out, the Canada Student
Loan Program has not been modified to respond to the changing needs of
Canadians attending our colleges and universities. It would appear to be most
appropriate that the proposed fee be put on hold pending the in-depth review
which you advised in the House of Commons would be undertaken.
This matter was discussed at the above-referenced meeting of the Board. The
Board of Governors unanimously supports the Senate's action and, similarly, has
asked me to write to you so you will be aware that the Board urges the
Government of Canada most strongly that this fee be cancelled or deferred
pending the review of the program."

 Vancouver Senate 10219
Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
Dr. Sobrino l        That the proposals of the Faculties of Applied
Dr.Lindstrom i        Science, Agricultural Sciences, Arts, Commerce
and Business Administration, Forestry,
Graduate Studies, and the School of Physical
Education and Recreation, be approved.
Dean Marchak noted that a number of Faculties had proposed that their students be
required to take English 112 plus one other 3 credit first- year English course. She stated
that all of the first-year courses involved writing skills and felt that some students might
be better served if they took one or two of the other first-year courses because they would
get more exposure to poetry and prose writings. Dean Marchak suggested that Faculties
reconsider the matter for next year and bring to Senate revised proposals that would
allow their students more choice.
Dr. Will informed Senate that the Senate Admissions Committee would be reporting to
Senate at the February meeting. He stated that a revised Calendar statement for admission
to the Faculty of Forestry would be included in that report, and wished to note that any
admission statements in the curriculum proposals before Senate this evening were not
being recommended for approval.
Senate agreed to a suggestion by Dean Marchak that the words "...Soviet and emigre..."
be deleted from the description of Russian 207.
Attention was drawn to the proposals of the Faculty of Forestry, and it was noted that
under "Industrial Processing Technology", Fourth Year, COMM 397 should read
"COMM 297", and under "Science, Engineering and Biotechnology" COMM 456
should read "COMM 457".
 Vancouver Senate 10220
Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
In response to a query about the Program in Conservation, Recreation and Natural Areas
Management, Dean Binkley stated that the objective of the program was to provide a
broad understanding of science and social sciences relating to natural resource
management. He stated that the program had been developed in collaboration with
internal and external planning committees. The internal committee included members
from Forestry, Agricultural Sciences, Arts, Community and Regional Planning, Landscape
Architecture, Law and Science, and a member at-large, Dr. Peter Larkin. The external
committee included a wide range of people from the parks, conservation, and forestry
communities in British Columbia, other parts of Canada and elsewhere in the world.
It was agreed that the words "...physical, biological and social sciences..." should read
"...sciences and social sciences...".
In response to a query concerning the Complementary Studies Courses in the Applied
Science proposals, Dean Meisen explained that Applied Science students will take English
112 or another first-year English course for 3 credits in the first year and in a later year
take English 301 if they are qualified for entry and another approved technical writing
course.
Dr. Elder drew attention to the Faculty of Arts proposals, and the proposed Calendar
entry on Language Proficiency Index, which states that "During the term in which
students are registered in a non-credit writing course at the University Writing Skills
Centre, they may not register for more than twelve credits of work or the equivalent,
without the permission of the Dean of Senior Adviser." She noted that at
 Vancouver Senate 10221
Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
the moment students who achieve a 3 on the LPI can register in 18 credits and students
who achieve a 4 can register in 24 credits, and that this possibility was now being
discontinued. Dr. Elder suggested that the proposed statement implied that the restriction
only applied to one term, and that if they had to repeat the non-credit writing course in
another term they would be free to take as many credits as they wished. It was agreed that
the statement be changed to read "During any term...".
The motion was put
and carried.
Dr. Sobrino referred to the deletion of the graduate program in the Department of
Russian and Slavic Languages and Literatures, and stated that the Curriculum Committee
had asked him to express the hope of the Committee that sometime in the future it will be
possible for the Department to again offer a graduate program.
In referring to the English requirement proposals of some of the Faculties, Dr. Sobrino
noted that there was no indication as to how many times a student could take the non-
credit course in the event that the student failed the course, nor was there any indication
that a student could not graduate until the course had been passed. He suggested that
Faculties look into this matter. He also noted that the Faculties of Arts and Science were
the only Faculties to propose restrictions on the number of credits that students taking the
non- credit writing course can register in, and suggested that other Faculties might also
wish to consider submitting similar proposals.

Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
APPEALS ON ACADEMIC STANDING
Professor Bryden, Chair of the Committee, presented the following report which had been
circulated for information:
1. Pursuant to s.36(b) of the University Act, R.S.B.C. 1979, c.419, the Senate has delegated
to the Senate Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing the power to render final
decisions on appeals by students from decisions of Faculties on matters of academic
standing. The Committee has no jurisdiction where the sole question raised in an appeal
turns on the exercise of academic judgment by a Faculty. The Committee is authorized to
allow an appeal only where it decides that the decision was arrived at through improper or
unfair procedures, and that as a result a wrong decision on the merits has or may have
been arrived at.
2. The Committee heard seven appeals in respect of decisions that were taken during the
1990/91 academic year. The appeal was allowed in three of these cases and dismissed in
the other four. A short summary of each appeal follows.
3. No. 1 - Appeal of Mr. B. from a decision of the Faculty of Education refusing to allow
him to do a supplementary practicum in Education 329. Mr. B.'s practicum was disrupted
when difficulties between himself and both his Faculty advisor and his supervising teacher
forced the Faculty to decide to discontinue his practicum at the original sponsor school.
The Faculty arranged for Mr. B. to finish his practicum at a new school but it asserted a
requirement, previously waived by his former Faculty advisor, that he balance his program
to do work in an area in which he was admittedly quite weak. The second part of the
program resulted in a failure and the Faculty refused to allow Mr. B. to take a
supplementary practicum.
Decision: The appeal was allowed in part. The Committee decided that, in the totality of
the circumstances, it was unfair for the Faculty to assert a requirement in the renewed
practicum that Mr. B. do work in an area in which he was admittedly weak after his initial
Faculty advisory had waived that requirement. The Committee decided that the
appropriate remedy was not to allow Mr. B. to do a supplementary practicum, but to treat
the original practicum as if Mr. B. had withdrawn and give him an opportunity to reregister in Education 329 at no financial cost, and with a clear program that
accommodates both Mr. B.'s academic strengths and interests and the Faculty's normal
academic requirements.
 Vancouver Senate 10223
Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
4. No. 2 - Appeal of Ms. M. from a decision of the Faculty of Arts that she be denied
graduation as a Double Major in History and Slavonic Area Studies. Ms. M. had received
advice from the Department of Slavonic Studies that her program satisfied the Slavonic
Area Studies Major requirements, and also received advice from the History Department
that her program qualified her as a History Major. Unfortunately for her, she could not
satisfy the requirements of a Double Major without counting at least one course for more
than one purpose.
Decision: The appeal was dismissed. The advice that Ms. M. received from each
Department was technically correct, in that each Department rightly advised her that her
program satisfied the Department's own Major requirements. The Committee believed
that it was incumbent on Ms. M. to ensure that the requirements of both Departments
could be met without double counting courses if she wanted to receive a Double Major.
At the same time, the Committee wishes to draw to the attention of Senate the fact that
students who wish to receive a Double Major may unwittingly find themselves the
recipients of advice that misleads them about their eligibility for a Double Major. The
Registrar, who is an ex officio member of the Committee, has agreed to take this matter
under advisement in the preparation of future versions of the Calendar that will give
prospective Double Major students clearer advice on this point.
5. No. 3 - Appeal of Mr. R. from a decision of the Faculty of Applied Science that he stand
failed in Mechanical Engineering 398. Mr. R. submitted a paper that did not meet the
course requirements for length.
Decision: The appeal was allowed, and Mr. R. was awarded a grade of "P" in the course.
There was no dispute that Mr. R.'s paper was of adequate quality, and the Committee
believed that the instructions given concerning the length of papers were not as precise as
they should have been. Moreover, the Committee found that the length requirement was
not being applied consistently by the instructor, and taken together these factors convinced
us that the evaluation had been improper.
6. No. 4 - Appeal of Mr. H. from decisions of the Faculty of Arts that grades of " W" not be
substituted for grades of "F" in three courses. Mr. H. had medical and other family
problems that would have rendered him eligible for compassionate treatment by the
Faculty. Rather than seeking to withdraw from courses when it became apparent that he
was unable to carry a full load, however, Mr. H. simply discontinued work in some
courses while successfully completing others. When he was notified that he had failed the
courses in question, he sought permission to withdraw from them and this permission was
denied by the Faculty.
 Vancouver Senate 10224
Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
Decision: The appeal was dismissed. The Committee did not believe that it was unfair or
improper for the Faculty to require that a student apply for what amounted to
compassionate relief at the earliest reasonable opportunity.
7. No. 5 - Appeal of Mr. A. from a decision of the Faculty of Education that courses taken
more than five years ago cannot carry credit toward a Diploma in Education.
Decision: The appeal was dismissed. The Committee has no jurisdiction to amend a rule,
approved by Senate, restricting credit for a Diploma in Education to courses taken within
a five year time period.
8. No. 6 - Appeal of Mr. W. from a decision of the Faculty of Arts that he stand failed in
Political Science 361. Mr. W. was enrolled in a course that ran over two terms. At the end
of November, he was late in handing in a paper that counted for 50% of the grade in the
course. Mr. W. did not have a medical excuse for handing in the paper late; he was simply
unable to meet all of his academic commitments. He, and all the other students in the
course, had been informed that no credit would be given for late papers, and no exception
was made for Mr. W. He nevertheless attended classes in the second term and wrote the
final exam but, predictably, his exam result was not sufficient to give him a passing grade.
Decision: The appeal was allowed, and the instructor was required to grade the paper and
impose upon it a late penalty of not more than 20%. The Committee wishes to emphasize
that it does not see this ruling as carrying with it an implication that faculty members can
never impose a rule that papers that are turned in late without a medical excuse will be
given no credit. This case turned on its particular circumstances, including the date the
paper was due, the fact that the course ran over two terms, and Mr. W.'s demonstration of
a good faith desire to satisfy the course requirements as evidenced by his willingness to
attend classes in second term and write the exam.
9. No. 7 - Appeal of Mr. K. from a decision of the Faculty of Education that he stand failed
in Education 329. Mr. K. succeeded in the physical education aspect of his practicum but
was unsuccessful in the English instruction aspect. Mr. K. raised arguments that the
negative assessments of the English instruction aspect of his practicum by two different
supervising teachers and one member of the Faculty of Education doing a cross check were
unfair.
Decision: The appeal was dismissed. The Committee heard from a number of witnesses,
including both supervising teachers, and examined the documentary evidence used to
support Mr. K.'s arguments, and we did not believe that Mr. K. had been unfairly or
improperly evaluated. It was the Committee's view that Mr. K. placed excessive emphasis
on the positive
 Vancouver Senate 10225

Reports of Committees of Senate
aspects of the evaluations of his performance that he received, and that the weighing of the
adequacy of his performance was a matter of academic judgment that was properly
exercised by the Faculty."

TRIBUTES COMMITTEE
MEMORIAL MINUTE
The following memorial statement had been prepared in accordance with the custom of
Senate, in recognition by the University and Senate of the late Paul Plant.
IN MEMORIAM
PAUL PLANT (1927-1991)
Of all the resources which sustain a great university, the support of its alumni is
one of the most valuable. The University of British Columbia is fortunate in
earning the loyalty of many dedicated graduates. Prominent among these was the
late Paul Plant.
Mr. Plant was born in Toronto in 1927. He received his early education in
Vancouver, and after graduating from Magee High School, enrolled in this
university. He earned a B.A. degree in 1949. His years on campus were filled with
activity. He was elected Treasurer of the Alma Mater Society and maintained a
long and warm relationship with other members of the Student Council
throughout his life. He also served faithfully as Manager of the 1948 Thunderbird
Basketball Team, one of the most famous in the history of UBC athletics.
After graduation, Paul Plant began a successful business career in the lumber
industry in British Columbia and Ontario. The high regard in which he was held
by the industry culminated in his election as Lumberman of the Year by his
professional association in 1987.
 Vancouver Senate 10226
Minutes of January 15,1992
Reports of Committees of Senate
Mr. Plant was an untiring supporter of the Liberal Party of Canada. He served in
numerous capacities, including a highly successful venture as co-chair for B.C. in
the federal election of 1968. He was a passionate Canadian with a noble vision of
his country which he never failed to share.
His deep relationship with the university also continued in a variety of ways. He
served as President of the Alumni Association from 1960-62 and was elected as a
representative to Senate from 1969 to 1975. As a member of this bodyhe was
elected to the Board of Governors, where he served for two terms between 1969
and 1974.
In the public arena, Mr. Plant undertook an extraordinary number of
responsibilities. He was a director of the CBC from 1973-79, the Vancouver Port
Corporation from 1982-84, and also as a member of the Board of the University
Endowment Lands. He also accepted a term as President of the Greater Vancouver
Family Services Association.
Paul Plant embodied all of the qualities which a university hopes to instill in its
alumni. He was loyal, committed, and unwavering in his support of his Alma
Mater. His love for his country, his province and his community was evident in
every facet of his life. He accepted the responsibilities of leadership with energy
and competence. He was also a dedicated family man who rejoiced in the successes
of his children. He loved life and lived it in a manner which earned him respect
from all quarters of society.
To his surviving family, the Senate of The University of British Columbia extends
its deepest sympathy.
Dr.Dennison i        That the memorial statement for Paul Plant be
Chancellor Peterson i        spread on the minutes of Senate and that a
copy be sent to the relatives of the deceased.
Carried.

students with an understanding of the sciences and social sciences underlying the
conservation and management of resources associated with wildlands, an appreciation for
the political and socioeconomic environments in which decisions concerning the
establishment and management of protected areas are made, and a working knowledge of
technologically advanced tools and quantitative techniques available to renewable
resource planners and managers. Throughout the program, emphasis is placed on
developing skills in communication, both oral and written, including approaches to public
participation in natural resources planning and the techniques of conflict resolution.

APPENDIX
The program consists of 129 credits taken over a four year period. Following a two year
common core of 63 credits, students must choose one of three areas of concentration:
nature conservation, wildland recreation and parks management; wildlife management; or
conservation and natural resource planning. Each area of concentration consists of 66
sessional credits including 24 credits common to all programs.
Following years two and three, students must register in the cooperative summer
internship program. This is a field work program, for which the student will receive
remuneration, conducted by the Faculty of Forestry in conjunction with public resource
agencies and the private sector.
