Reports of Committees of Senate
ACADEMIC POLICY COMMITTEE
Dr. Tees, Chair of the Committee, presented the following report, which had been
circulated:
 Vancouver Senate 10258
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Re: Changes in Calendar Entries
A. PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE SECTION "GENERAL INFORMATION"
1. ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY (SEE 1991/92 CALENDAR, PAGE 18)
(a) Students with Disabilities (page 19)
The committee proposes replacing the first and second paragraphs of the current entry with the
following: (changes in bold print)
Academically qualified students who have physical, sensory or specific learning disabilities
are encouraged to attend the University of British Columbia. The University has available
a wide variety of services, including several forms of special assistance, designed to
accommodate the needs of students challenged by their disability.
Students requiring special assistance or consideration in order to meet program or degree
requirements should advise their dean's or director's office of the nature of their disability
as soon as they have been admitted or the need for assistance is known to exist. Students
with disabilities should also contact the Disability Resource Centre (see entry "The
Disability Resource Centre", page 35) for a description of the services available and to
arrange access to them.
The section "Disabled Student Services" will be replaced with a revised entry prepared by the
Disability Resource Centre and included as part of the Centre's entry on page 35.
(b) Concurrent Enrolment Policy (page 19)
To reflect the fact that students admitted to concurrent studies are different from unclassified
students (e.g.: they may count credit for work done toward a degree) a new "Concurrent Studies"
student category is proposed (see 2 (b) below). We therefore propose deleting the words "as
unclassified students" from the end of the first sentence, which would then read:
Students who are enrolled in Grade 11 or 12 in a B.C. secondary school may be admitted
to the University to pursue " Concurrent Studies".
2. CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS (SEE 1991/92 CALENDAR, PAGE 24)
(a)        New category for visiting EAP students
The Education Abroad Program Advisory Committee recommends that an additional student
category should be added following the existing entry, "Visitor":
 Vancouver Senate 10259
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Exchange: A visiting student studying at the University of British Columbia under a Senate
approved Education Abroad Program and enrolled in studies for transfer to a degree
program at another university.
(b) New category for Concurrent Studies students
Concurrent Studies: A student who is enrolled in grade 11 or 12 in a B.C. secondary
school and who has been admitted to the University to pursue concurrent studies (see
Admission to the University, Concurrent Enrolment Policy).
(c) New category for Dental, Medical and Pharmacy Residents
The Registrar's Office recommends that the following additional student category should be
added:
Resident: A dental resident, medical resident or intern or pharmacy resident registered in a
postgraduate training program in the Faculty of Dentistry, the Faculty of Medicine or the
Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Dental Residents (Calendar, page 118) and Medical Interns and Residents (Calendar, page 202)
are not in UBC degree or diploma programs but are considered to be UBC students and are
required to register. They are not adequately covered by any existing student category. The
Registrar's Office uses the student category "Resident" for these students.
B. PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE SECTION "GENERAL ACADEMIC
REGULATIONS"
1. RETENTION OF STUDENT RECORDS (NEW ENTRY)
The Registrar's Office has adopted the student record retention policy set out in the attached
statement. The policy is consistent with the policies for student record retention used in other
universities and is necessary to allow the Registrar's Office to keep their paper and electronic files
down to a reasonable size.
To inform students and others of this policy the following Calendar entry is proposed, to appear
on page 27 immediately before "TRANSCRIPT OF ACADEMIC RECORD":
 Vancouver Senate 10260
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
RETENTION OF STUDENT RECORD
Academic Records, including all information appearing on a Transcript of Academic Record, are
retained indefinitely. Notations of student discipline are retained according to the terms of the
penalty imposed. Material supporting applications for admission, correspondence and transcripts
from other institutions and similar material may be destroyed five years after a student's last
registration. Other material may be destroyed sooner.
Students who submit irreplaceable material may request the return of that material. Such
requests must be submitted with the original material. The office to which the material is
submitted will return the material as soon as possible and not later than six months after
the student's graduation or last registration.
2. TRANSCRIPT OF ACADEMIC RECORD (SEE PAGE 27)
The present first paragraph reads as follows:
A transcript of a student's academic record, will, on written request of the student, be
mailed directly to the institution or agency indicated in the request. An official transcript
will not be given to a student except in special circumstances when the transcript will be
issued in a sealed envelope carrying the inscription " official transcript valid only if
presented with seal unbroken".
To reflect current practice this should be amended to read as follows:
An official transcript of a student's academic record, will, on written request of the
student, be mailed directly to the institution or agency indicated in the request or given to
the student in a sealed envelope carrying the inscription " Official transcript enclosed.
Invalid if envelope presented with seal broken".
The sentence in the penultimate paragraph which gives specific fees for transcripts should be
deleted and the following statement added to the last paragraph, which will read:
Fees for transcripts are payable in advance; transcripts will not be provided until payment
is received (see the Calendar entry: FEES, item 27, "Special Fees, Transcript of Academic
Record").
 Vancouver Senate 10261
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
3. WITHDRAWAL (SEE PAGE 28)
(a) Withdrawal from courses during the W period
To reflect the regulations and to clarify current practice, revise the first sentence of the second
paragraph 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 of courses which span two terms, subject to approval by the appropriate
faculty or school, (italicized wording is new)
Some students have argued that " at any time" means they can drop courses without restriction.
The additional wording clarifies that this is not the case.
(b) Withdrawal from courses that are being audited.
The present Calendar entry includes the following:
"Auditors may withdraw without prejudice at any time; in the case of withdrawal the
record of registration will be removed from the transcript".
We propose replacing this with:
"The dates for withdrawal given above also apply to students auditing courses."
Problems with the current statement include the following:
i.      It is not clear whether the statement applies to a regular student auditing one or two courses
(the usual situation), to a student registered in the Category "Auditor", or to both.
ii.      The statement is inconsistent with the Calendar entry on the Audit category (page 24) which
states:
"An auditor is defined as a student registered in a credit course whose participation is
limited to that deemed appropriate by the instructor but who, in general, is expected to
maintain the same schedule of readings as regular students although not expected to write
examinations."
According to the present Calendar statement on withdrawal, a student who does not meet this
expectation can retroactively withdraw from the course.
 Vancouver Senate 10262
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
The proposed change has the following implications:
i.      A student who is auditing a course (regardless of student category) and who withdraws within
the first 2 or 3 weeks would have the course removed from his or her record and would
receive a full refund of fees.
ii. A student who withdraws within 6 or 12 weeks would get a W, and there would be nothing to
indicate that the status before withdrawal was Audit. Fees would be refunded according to the
schedule in the Calendar.
iii.      After the end of the W period the student would have to remain registered in the course unless
late withdrawal was approved by the Faculty.
(c)        Withdrawal from the University
The present last paragraph of the section reads as follows:
After Telereg has closed for withdrawals, a student who decides to withdraw from the
University must present a Change of Registration form, signed by the appropriate Dean,
Director or Faculty Advisor, to the Office of Registrar. The Registrar will then grant
Honourable Dismissal and decide whether or not there may be a refund of fees.
Proposed amendment:
A student who decides to withdraw from the University must present a Change of
Registration form to the appropriate Dean, Director or Faculty Advisor. The Transcript of
Academic Record will show the date of withdrawal. When Telereg is available
undergraduate students may withdraw from the University by using Telereg to withdraw
from all courses. The courses which will appear on the transcript and the standing in those
courses will be determined in accordance with the regulations above.
This amendment expresses current practice and makes it clear that the courses for which the
student was registered will be shown on the transcript unless the student withdrew from them
according to the applicable regulations.

4. EDUCATION ABROAD PROGRAMS (EAP) (SEE PAGE 28)
When UBC students who have studied abroad on Senate approved Education Abroad Programs
return to UBC the courses taken at the partner institution are entered on their UBC record. The
institution at which they studied, the courses taken and the equivalent UBC credits earned will
print on their UBC transcript.
To ensure that the records of students who are away on exchange programs remain active in the
Student Information System and to provide a simple mechanism for assessing the UBC tuition fees
payable during this period these students will be required to register in a non-credit activity at
UBC in each term during which they are abroad. This registration will also generate a transcript
entry indicating that the student is (or was) studying abroad on an approved exchange program
during the session.
To inform students of this requirement we propose the following addition, to follow the present
last paragraph in the section:
Students must register in the appropriate non-credit activity at the University of British
Columbia in each term of study abroad on an EAP.
The Registration Guide will contain specific information on the non- credit activities which will
allow students to register in the appropriate activity using Telereg.
Dr. Tees l        That the proposed changes to the "General
Dean McBride i       Information" section of the Calendar be
approved.
In response to a query, Dr. Spencer stated that it was a UBC practice to require students
who audit courses to undertake the same course work as regular students but they are
exempt from sitting a final examination. It has been the policy not to record the course as
having been completed for audit purposes on a student's transcript unless that
requirement is met. The question relating to withdrawal relates more to whether or not
the students can get the fees back for the course than whether or not they fail. He stated
that unless the Academic Policy Committee gives further consideration to this matter the
current policy will be implemented by recording a student as having completed a course
 Vancouver Senate
Minutes of February 19,1992

Reports of Committees of Senate
if that is the judgement that the instructor returns on the Report of Grades Form, and to
put no entry if the student has not audited the course to the satisfaction of the instructor.
The motion was put
and carried.
ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE
Dr. Will, Chair of the Committee, presented a report on: changes in admission
requirements for Science and for Education; EAP partners; Nursing, change in credits for

(2) Persons who have a program of 18 or fewer credits of pedagogical courses plus
practicum requirements of 9 or fewer weeks duration prescribed as a condition of

FACULTY OF FORESTRY
Changes in admission requirements
The Committee recommended approval of the following Calendar statement on
requirements for admission to the B.S.F., B.Sc. (Forestry), and the B.Sc. (Natural
Resources Conservation) programs:
 Vancouver Senate 10270
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
The Faculty of Forestry will accept applications from students with varying
educational preparation: (1) directly from secondary graduation; (2) following
completion of at least 30 credits at UBC or its equivalent at another post-
secondary institution; (3) after the completion of a two-year Forestry diploma
program at a recognized institute of technology; or (4) from an approved one- or
two-year Forestry transfer program at a B.C. Community College.
Students entering from secondary school must have met the general University
entrance requirements (see General Information section of this Calendar),
including Mathematics 12, two of Biology 11, Chemistry 11, Physics 11 (all three
are strongly recommended), and one of Chemistry 12 or Physics 12.
Students who enter Forestry following the completion of at least 30 credits of work
at UBC, or its equivalent at another post-secondary institution, must have attained
an overall average of at least 60% in all credits attempted. On entry into the
Faculty of Forestry, students must select one of four major programs - Forest
Resources Management, forest Harvesting, Wood Science and Industry, and Forest
Science. Students entering the Forest Management, Forest Harvesting, or Wood
Science and Industry programs must have completed, in their 30 credits or more of
university-level work, 6 credits of first-year English, Mathematics 100 and 101 (or
140 and 141 for the Forest Management major), Biology 101 or 102 or 103, and
either Physics (110 or 120) or Chemistry (103 or 110 or 120), or an equivalent. If
either Chemistry or Physics has not been taken at the Grade 12 level, it must be the
subject included in the above-stated requirements. Moreover, it is recommended
that students include both Chemistry and Physics in their First-Year program.
Students selecting the Forest Science major must have completed in addition to 6
credits of first-year English and Biology 101 or 102 or 103, Mathematics 111 or
100 (or 140) and 101 (or 141), and Chemistry 103 or 110 or 120. The major
programs are designed to allow completion in three years following at least one
year (30 credits) of university-level work.
Applicants graduating from a two-year Forestry Technology diploma program
must have achieved an overall average of at least 65% in their program. Provided
that students have the science and mathematics requirements from secondary
school graduation as outlined above, consideration will be given to individual cases
of study in determining the transfer credits that may be applied to the Forestry
degree program.
 Vancouver Senate 10271
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Application for admission by students or graduates of other universities, colleges,
or other faculties will be reviewed individually. It may be possible to design study
programs for such applicants that meet Forestry degree requirements in less than
the full four years. Transfer students may be required to validate advanced
standing in a given subject by passing an examination.
Applicants who are uncertain about the selection of a major, and those who lack
some of the required courses but may have other advanced credit, are urged to
consult the Admissions Officer of the Faculty of Forestry.
Undergraduate students with the necessary background and the permission of the
instructor concerned may be allowed by the Dean to register in a regularly
scheduled graduate course in Forestry.
B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation)
Students enter the program (1) directly from secondary school graduation provided
they have met the University general entrance requirements (see General
Information section of this Calendar) and have completed Mathematics 12 and
Chemistry 11, or (2) following completion of at least 30 credits at UBC or its
equivalent at another post-secondary institution, providing an overall average of at
least 60% has been attained in all credits attempted. In the case of transfer
students, consideration will be given to individual courses of study in determining
the transfer credits that may be applied to the B.Sc. (Natural Resources and
Conservation) program.
Dr. Will l        That the Calendar statement on admission
Dean McBride i       requirements for the Faculty of Forestry be
approved.
Carried.

The Core Courses in the above list are required for the M.Sc. degree. Undergraduate
students are encouraged to take them as part of their bachelor program, thus making
room for graduate level electives or making it possible to complete the M.Sc. program in
two years.
Students with other academic backgrounds who have outstanding academic records and
who are interested in applying, should write to the Chair of the Committee on Admissions
with the details of their academic preparation.
For further information concerning course listings at universities other than UBC, contact
the Chair of the Committee on Admissions, School of Audiology and Speech Sciences, who
will provide a list of acceptable equivalent courses at the other institution, provided
equivalents exist.
Application for Admission
Persons interested in applying to the School's M.Sc. program should call or write for
application materials. The application process then occurs in two stages:
I Preliminary application: the applicant should return to the School the "Request for
Application Material" and the "List of Prerequisites". Only when both of these forms
have been received will the applicant be notified whether or not to proceed to the next
step. Applicants who are non-native speakers of English must also provide a 5-10 minute
audio cassette recording of their speech. This speech sample can be on any topic, as long
as it is neither read nor recited.
II. Full application: all of the following documents should be received by March 31.
These documents are:
 Vancouver Senate 10275

Reports of Committees of Senate
1. An application form, including the (yellow) "Additional Information" form, completed
and signed.
2. A processing fee of $40 Canadian or $36 US, by cheque, bank draft or money order,
should be made payable to "UBC - Faculty of Graduate Studies".
3. An updated (if warranted) "List of Prerequisites to the M.Sc. Program".
4. A written statement by the applicant of up to 500 words indicating why s/he wishes to
study audiology and/or speech-language pathology, the aspects of the field which are
of particular interest to her/him and any other fact(s) relevant to her/his choice. At the
end of the statement, a list should be given with the names of the professionals (at least
one audiologist and one speech-language pathologist) who have been observed in the
course of their practice.
5. The official transcript(s) of all post-secondary institutions attended. If still attending
university at the time of application, the applicant should send the most recent
transcript available from that institution, as well as a list of the courses s/he is
currently enrolled in, including the standing at the time. An official and complete
transcript should also be sent as soon as available, even if past the application
deadline. If any transcript is not in English or French, an official translation must be
provided.
6. Three letters of reference, at least two of which should be written by professors who
taught the applicant in the last two years of university work. These letters must be
mailed directly to the School by the referees.
7. Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Proof of proficiency in the English
language is required if English is not the applicant's native language. No offer of
admission to the University will be made until we receive a TOEFL result. The
minimum acceptable score for this program is 600.
It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that all of these documents are received by the
School. No application will be processed until all of the materials listed above have been
received. Offers of admission are made in three rounds. Candidates who wish to be
considered for a University Graduate Fellowship must submit their documents to arrive by
January 15 Deadline for the second and major selection round is March 31. Candidates
whose application materials are received after March 31 will be considered in an
additional selection round, if positions are still available in the program. Applicants
accepted in the first two selection rounds will be notified of the outcome of their
application no later than April, others at a later date.

FACULTY OF FORESTRY
Change in English Requirements
Senate was informed that the Calendar statement on the English Requirement for the
Faculty of Forestry, which had been circulated, replaces the one approved at the previous
meeting (p.10216).
That the Calendar statement on the English Requirement for the Faculty of Forestry be
approved.
Dr. Guy i        That the Calendar statement on the English
Dr. Tees J        Requirement for the Faculty of Forestry be
approved.
The Registrar said that he had some concerns about publishing in the Calendar a
statement which says a student must pass a non-credit course by achieving a satisfactory
LPI score. He felt that detailed prerequisites for admission to first year English courses
(including the LPI requirements) should appear in the Faculty of Arts Calendar entry and
in the "Courses of Instruction" section. Calendar entries for other programs that require
first year English courses should refer students to these detailed entries.
Dean Marchak said that although the statement from the Faculty of Arts had stated that
those students whose LPI scores are below the level required for entrance into first
 Vancouver Senate 10278
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports of Committees of Senate
year English courses must take a non-credit writing course, she agreed that it would be
more appropriate if the word "must" was changed to "encouraged" or "advised", since
she felt that you could not force a student to take a non-credit writing course. However,
you could require that they achieve the required LPI score and advise them to use the
University Writing Skills Centre as a means for doing that.
After further discussion it was agreed that the Registrar would modify the Calendar
statements on the LPI to reflect the concerns expressed.
The motion was put
and carried.
i
The statement was subsequently revised, as follows:
To qualify for the degree of B.S.F. or B.Sc. (Forestry), students must satisfy
the English Requirement of the Faculty of Forestry. To do this students
must obtain credit for two of English 110, 111, 112, 120 and 121.
With the exception of students who obtained a mark of A in English 12 or
English Literature 12, all students entering first-year English courses at The
University of British Columbia are required to write the Language
Proficiency Index (LPI) examination. Returning UBC students who have not
yet completed six credits of first-year English, will also be required to take
the LPI examination.
Those students whose LPI scores are below the required level for entrance
into first-year English courses are advised to take a non-credit writing
course in the University Writing Skills Centre and may not register for more
than 12 credits of course work per term. Upon being permitted to enrol in
first-year English courses, these students must do so at the first opportunity.
Students must complete the English Requirement before entering the Third
Year of their program, or within one year of first registering at UBC,
whichever date is later.

Reports from the Registrar
FACULTY OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES
Chair in Pharmacy Administration
It was stated in the material circulated that Pharmacy Administration is a relatively new
discipline within pharmaceutical education, and that its teaching and research activities
are being strengthened at most universities in North America. Pharmacy Administration is
the study of legal, ethical, social and economic aspects of pharmacy. It is concerned with
the evolving concept of pharmaceutical care and the role of pharmacists in the health care
system. The development of the health care system requires continuing active study and
research. The importance of an active research program in this field by Pharmacy is more
apparent every day. The dividends of such research will accrue to the people of the
province, the administrators of health programs, the profession and to the Faculty. As
examples, research into cost effectiveness of drug treatments, the use of generic drugs and
the optimization of pharmaceutical care could result in cost savings and in better health
care for the people of British Columbia.
Dean McNeill l        That the proposal of the Faculty of
Dr. Lyster J        Pharmaceutical Sciences to establish a Chair in
Pharmacy Administration be approved.
Carried.

CALENDAR STATEMENT ON REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO FIRST YEAR
ENGLISH COURSES (LPI EXAMINATION)
The following statement, which was modified at the meeting, had been circulated for
information:
 Vancouver Senate 10280
Minutes of February 19,1992	
Reports from the Registrar
To ensure that students who are applying for admission are aware that in most cases they
will be required to write the Language Proficiency Index exam before registering for their
program at the university, the following changes to the Calendar section "Admission to
the University" are proposed:
P. 19 of Column 1 of 1991-92 Calendar
After Transfer Credit or Placement and before Students with Disabilities add the following
new entry:
Language Proficiency Index (LPI) Examination
Effective for courses beginning in September 1992, students entering first-year English
courses at the University must have either achieved a satisfactory score in the Language
Proficiency Index examination (LPI) or achieved one of the following: (i) a final grade of A
in English 12 or English Literature 12, (ii) a grade of 5 on the Advanced Placement (AP)
examination in English Literature and Composition or (iii) a grade of 6 or 7 on the
"higher level" of the International Baccalaureate (IB) examination in English Literature.
Students transferring to the University from other institutions who have completed the
equivalent of six credits of first-year English and returning UBC students who have
completed six credits of first year English or who have passed the UBC English
Composition Test are exempt from this requirement.
Students who are resident in British Columbia and who are required to write the LPI
examination should do so prior to registration. Other students should write the LPI
examination as soon as possible; those who are unable to write before classes begin must
do so early in the first term. Students who are unable to achieve the necessary LPI score
are encouraged to take a non-credit writing course through the University Writing Centre
and will not be allowed to register for a full course load in some programs. Further details
about the LPI examination are given below.
(Note: These details will be dates, places, cost and other administrative details relating to
the LPI.)
The following Calendar entries will be deleted from this section: " K. English Composition
Requirement" and "L. English Placement".
CALENDAR STATEMENT ON EXCHANGE PROGRAMS
The following proposed Calendar statement had been circulated for information:
To reflect changes in the administration of EAP programs and to recognize that the
University may enter into exchange agreements with Canadian universities, the following
revised Calendar sections are proposed to replace the existing sections:

EXCHANGE PROGRAMS AND EDUCATION ABROAD PROGRAMS (EAP) (on page
28 of the 1991/92 Calendar)
EXCHANGE PROGRAMS
Opportunities are available for the exchange of graduate and undergraduate students with
other universities, including Education Abroad Programs and Canada Exchange Programs.
EDUCATION ABROAD PROGRAMS (EAP)
Education Abroad Programs are institution to institution reciprocal exchange programs
approved by Senate. UBC students selected to participate remain registered at UBC, pay
tuition and student fees to UBC and remain eligible for UBC awards, scholarships and
financial aid. Students pursue academic programs which are developed in consultation
with their Faculties.
To be eligible to participate in these programs, applicants must normally be registered at
UBC and have at least a 70% average for all courses completed for credit toward their
current degree program. Undergraduate students are normally eligible to study abroad in
third year only. Graduate students are limited to 12 transfer credits from another
institution.
UBC has exchange agreements with the following institutions:
Australia: The University of Melbourne
Denmark: University of Copenhagen
France: Universite Jean-Moulin - Lyon 3
Germany: Universitt Augsberg
Universitt-GH Siegen
Hong Kong:     The Chinese University of Hong Kong
University of Hong Kong
Japan: Ritsumeikan University (Kyoto)
Sophia University (Tokyo)
Korea: Ewha University (Seoul)

Application forms and information on any changes to this list may be obtained from the
Student Exchange Program Coordinator, The Office of the Registrar. The deadline date
for EAP applications is the second Monday of January.
UBC Students must register in the appropriate non-credit activity at The University of
British Columbia in each term of study abroad on an EAP.
CANADA EXCHANGE PROGRAMS (CEP)
UBC is developing institution to institution exchange agreements with specific universities
within Canada. The criteria, selection and application procedures are similar to those for
Education Abroad Programs. UBC students selected to participate remain registered at
UBC, pay tuition and student fees to UBC and remain eligible for UBC awards,
scholarships and financial aid. Students pursue academic programs which are developed in
consultation with their Faculties. Information is available from the UBC Student Exchange
Program Coordinator.
UBC students must register in the appropriate non-credit activity at The University of
British Columbia in each term of study elsewhere on a CEP.
PROGRAMS NOT SPONSORED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
Many students choose to attend study programs sponsored by institutions and
organizations other than UBC. These students must make all necessary arrangements on
their own. Calendars of some international universities can be found on microfiche in the
Humanities and Social Sciences Reference Division in the Main Library, or in the Student
Counselling and Resource Centre, Brock Hall. Information can also be obtained from the
Work and Study Abroad Information Library (WASAIL) at International House. Before
enrolling in any program students should consult faculty advisors concerning the
transferability of course work, degree requirements and procedures for readmission.
Students planning on obtaining transfer credit must obtain a Letter of Permission from the
Faculty in which they are enrolled before leaving UBC (see Transfer policy: Letter of
Permission)."

HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENTS
President Strangway reported to Senate the names of those who had accepted invitations
to receive honorary degrees at the 1992 Congregation ceremonies.
FRENCH 115
Mr. Lau drew Senate's attention to a recent article in the Ubyssey regarding French 115.
He stated that the Department of French had decided not to offer the course in 1992/93
and to make a recommendation to Senate to delete the course the following year. Mr. Lau
stated that he had been contacted by students and others in the Department of French
who informed him that this decision was made at a meeting without student
representatives. Consequently a petition has been submitted to the Department Head. On
behalf of the students, Mr. Lau asked that the Department of French and the Faculty of
Arts reconsider this decision.
Adjournment
The meeting adjourned at 9.20 p.m.
