Volume 27, Number 12
brief on
Federal funding support must be
continued to maintain Canada's
existing national network of
universities, UBC President Douglas T.
Kenny told a parliamentary committee
hearing briefs on federal-provinical
fiscal arrangements in Victoria June 3.
Dr. Kenny told the seven-member
task force that federal participation in
higher-education funding brings long-
term benefits to the nation and is
crucial to Canada's continued
economic and cultural growth. He said
the federal government has the
responsibility of ensuring a nationwide
balance of higher educational
opportunities and scholarly capability;
the inter-provincial mobility of
university students; support and
fostering of excellence in scholarship,
research and the advancement of
knowledge; the maintenance of a
highly qualified labor force and the
international exchange of Canadian
scholars with those of other countries.
Under a 1977 agreement that is due
to expire next April, federal support
now comes in the form of tax credits
and direct cash payments to the
provinces —with no stipulation that the
money actually be used for
universities. In 1980-81, for example,
British Columbia received $190 million
in cash and $145 million in tax
,       Ottawa has suggested that it would
like to drop the cash transfer part of
the arrangement. The parliamentary
task force has held hearings across the
country and is to report to the federal
cabinet by June 26 with
recommendations on any changes in
.'federal policy.
Dr. Kenny, in his brief, traced the
history of federal support of
universities from the end of the Second
World War.
"The growing involvement of the
federal government in providing
financial support for post-secondary
education has coincided with the
acceleration of social development," he
The UBC president cautioned
against "opting for short-term
solutions which may have adverse
long-term effects", noting that
universities were not internal
combustion engines to be switched on
and off at will.

Official opening of UBC's new Asian Centre Friday (June 5) became an international affair when B.C. Premier William
Bennett invited Prince Norihito of Mikasa, a member of the royal family of Japan, to join him in ribbon-cutting ceremony.
On prince's right is UBC President Douglas Kenny. To Mr. Bennett's left are Dean of Arts Robert Will, Director of
Ceremonies Ben Moyls and Chancellor J. V. Clyne.
Rain fails to dampen Centre opening
A prince and a premier shared a
pair of golden shears to cut a blue and
yellow ribbon on Friday — and UBC's
magnificent new Asian Centre was
officially open.
Premier William Bennett,
Foreign students supported
Premier William Bennett was
applauded loudly on Friday when he
told an audience of more than 400
that more foreign students should be
admitted to British Columbia
"I think that Canadians and the
people at the University should not
respond to those who show concern
but should be aggressive in
encouraging the educational
interchange and the expansion of it,"
Premier Bennett said during his
remarks at the opening of the Asian
Here is the part of the Premier's
speech relating to visiting students:
"I saw that our opportunities were
more than trade as we went through
countries such as Indonesia and met
some of the leaders of commerce, or of
plants, business and industry and
"It was pleasing, Dr. Kenny, to
realize that some of these people —
one in particular, I can remember —
looked at Canada fondly and British
Columbia in particular, and the
University of British Columbia —
because he was a graduate of our
University. He stressed to me the
importance that it would be shortsighted indeed if we ever restrict — in
fact if we did not expand — the
educational opportunities for others to
come and study and learn with us.
"I hope this will be a two-way street,
President Kenny, for it's an
immeasurable investment, and an
investment in that type of educational
exchange worth a few thousand dollars
is worth a million dollars of diplomacy
later on in our history.
"I think that Canadians and the
people at the University should not
respond to those who show concern
but should be aggressive in
encouraging the educational
interchange and the expansion of it.
"It will be a challenge for all of us,
then, to respond to these needs and
extend those opportunities. But
certainly we have a great opportunity
for understanding and for trade and
to share with one another, and the
universities can be the leading edge."
designated as the official ribbon-
cutter, called upon His Imperial
Highness Prince Norihito of Mikasa,
nephew of the Emperor of Japan, to
share the duty with him. Jointly, they
snipped the ribbon stretching across
the entrance causeway to the applause
of some 400 guests.
That was at 4 o'clock in the
afternoon, fortunately during a brief
break in a day of almost continuous
heavy rain.
Although the weather did little to
dampen enthusiasm, it did force the
University to move most of the
opening ceremony into the Recital
Hall of the Music Building — packed
to well beyond normal capacity.
Chancellor J. V. Clyne, who noted
that it was a day marked with "pride
of accomplishment," introduced the
five speakers — Joseph Whitehead,
chairman of the Asian Centre fund-
raising committee; Senator Ray
Perrault, representing the federal
government; Prince Norihito, who is
studying law at Queen's University in
Kingston; UBC President Douglas
Kenny, and then Premier Bennett.

Hoofing it at a recent exhibit at UBC's Museum of Anthropology are these two
well-known campus administrators, Prof. Michael Shaw, left, academic vice-
president and provost, and museum director Dr. Michael Ames. Occasion was
the official opening of display entitled "Hunt Family Heritage: Contemporary
Kwakiutl Art, " a travelling exhibit from the National Museum of Man, which
continues until Aug. 30. Evening was enlivened by a performance by the Hunt

"They are delicate institutions that
have resulted from a long
accumulation of a 'critical mass' of
human imagination and creativity. If
universities are denied the resources to
function optimally, then their ability
to serve Canadian society will be
Dr. Kenny said he supported the
brief of the Association of Universities
and Colleges of Canada, of which
UBC is a member. The AUCC brief
said that education is a national
investment and that any precipitous
changes in the post-secondary funding
will be disasterous to Canadian
universities; that the present
arrangements of unconditional
transfers may not be the best means by
which the federal government can
provide visible and accountable
financial support to Canadian
universities; and that changes in the
block funding of the Extended
Programs Financing act would be
To that end he presented his own
personal proposal as an alternative
which would give credit to the federal
role in the financing of higher
In making his proposal to have the
federal government give direct tuition
grants to university students, Dr.
Kenny said he was assuming that the
tax transfer part of the 1977
agreement would be continued, that
the federal government should be
responsible for a fixed percentage of
the operating costs of universities and
m page 1
that students should be given a
country-wide choice in higher
He also said that although students
should always pay part of the cost of
their education, tuition fees should
never equal the full cost of a university
education, "since society gains more by
higher education than does the
The UBC president said his proposal
would also ensure that all provincial
governments supported higher
education. The first step in
determining what Ottawa might
contribute via tuition grants would be
for each province to make known its
total operating grant to its system of
higher education.
Next, he said, each institution
should set its tuition fees and
determine all operating expenditures
for the year.
The third step would be for the
federal government to determine its
"visible and accountable" contribution
to the total operating costs of all of
the universities. This contribution
would be a fixed percentage, tied to
growth of the Gross National Product
The final step in the sequence, Dr.
Kenny said, would be for Ottawa to
make a Federal Tuition Grant (FTG)
to each student enrolled in a
university, the size of the gTant to be
determined by the number of students

UCBC system of
funding criticized
A special committee of UBC's
Senate has called for a significant
revision of the formula used by the
Universities Council of B.C. to allocate
operating grants among B.C.'s three
public universities.
The committee, in its report to the
May meeting of Senate, said UBC is
seriously underfunded because the way
in which the formula is applied results
in a distribution of funds which
"totally ignores the differences in
relative costs inherent in different
programs, many of the more costly of
which are unique to UBC."

four-storey building that is noted for
its distinctive roof.
The high, pyramidal roof, with an
elaborate raised skylight, is supported
by girders that were a gift to the
University from the Sanyo Corporation
of Japan. The girders were used to
support the roof of the Sanyo pavilion
at Expo '70 in Osaka and arrived on
campus the following year.
Construction of the Asian Centre
began in 1974 and the first phase was
completed in 1975. Original funding
came from the Province of British
Columbia, the Government of
Canada, the Japanese Federation of
Economic Organizations, the Japanese
World Exposition and a fund-raising
campaign supported by both Asian
and Canadian interests.
Escalating costs and more difficult
economic times delayed completion of
the structure, however, the provincial
government finally making the job
possible by authorizing additional
funding in 1979. Total cost, including
furnishing and landscaping, was $5.4
President Kenny said during his
remarks on Friday that an occasion
such as the opening of the Asian
Centre "causes a lifting of the heart
and the mind throughout the whole
community. But more than that,
nothing is more stirring than the
reminder that humanity is one race,
with one destiny."
"I am convinced that our Asian
Centre will become an invaluable
national asset which will serve the
cause of mutual understanding
between Canada and Asia," Dr. Kenny
"So let it be said that Asians and
Canadians, working together to bring
about the Asian Centre, have achieved
today a new era of co-operation and
"Our children will inherit our
mutual success," President Kenny
Occupying the building are UBC's
Department of Asian Studies, the
Institute of Asian Research and the
Asian Studies Library. There is also
space for the Asian interests of UBC's
Departments of Music, Fine Arts and
The Asian Centre is located just off
West Mall, right next to the Nitobe
Garden, surrounded by a classical
Japanese garden of its own. This
landscaping was completed by Roy
Sumi, landscape consultant to
architect Donald Matsuba. Mr. Sumi
was gardener in the Nitobe Garden for
many years.
Data compiled by the committee
show that "UBC would have received
about $12.5 million more in 1980-81
than it actually did" if the formula
had been applied in such a way that
the distribution of funds among the
three universities was in proportion to
the relative cost-weighted, full-time
equivalent student enrolments.
The data also show, the report
adds, that on the average "UBC
received 16 per cent less than UVic
and 22 per cent less than SFU per
WFTE (cost-weighted full-time
equivalent student) over the last three
There are two fundamental reasons
for the inequitable allocation of funds,
the report continues.
The first of these is an assumption
that economies of scale are possible at
UBC because of higher enrolments.
"At a university like UBC," the report
says, "which offers a wide range of
specialized undergraduate, graduate
and professional programs requiring
special facilities and frequently with
relatively small enrolments, there are
few costs which depend only on the
size of the university.
"It is our conclusion that the
assumption implicit in this formula
that large economics of scale are
possible at UBC is ill-founded."
The second assumption centres on
inclusion in the formula of one special
cost factor —SFU's trimester system.
The UCBC formula does not
recognize that UBC operates many
academic programs on a year-round
basis, the report says, and no
allowance is made for additional UBC
operating costs arising from the
relative age of its buildings and the
operation of a comprehensive library
that serves as a province-wide
The committee concludes its report
with four specific recommendations.
These call for:
• Dropping the 'head count' factor
from the allocation mechanism "until
there is good empirical evidence for
substantial economies of scale in B.C. "i
• An allowance to be made for spring
and summer sessions at UBC and UVic
if such an allowance is to continue for
• Full recognition to be given to the
cost-weighted FTE measure in the
allocation mechanism; and
• The phasing in of changes over a
reasonable period.
Operating grant up^
11.83 per cent
UBC's general purpose operating
grant for 1981-82 has been set at
$157,477,000 by the Universities
Council of B.C., an increase of 11.83
per cent over the 1980-81 general
purpose operating grant.
The University's total operating
grant is $161,050,000, an increase of
12.37 per cent. The total grant
includes just over $3.5 million that
must be used for designated purposes.   *
Wages and salaries are paid from the ^
general purpose grant.
The general purpose operating
grant for the University of Victoria is
up 13.9 per cent, and Simon Fraser
University's is up 11.63 per cent. UBC Reports June 10, 1981
UBC graduate David Ward, right, is the first Canadian Inuit to receive a law degree. He got his LL.B. on May 29, the final
day of UBC's 1981 spring congregation. At a reception following the degree ceremony, Mr.  Ward was presented with a
plaque to mark the occasion by Hon. Bora Laskin, left, who received the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws the same day.
Mr. Laskin promised Mr.  Ward he would "take it easy on him" when he made his first appearance before him in Ottawa.
Mr.  Ward, who is articling with an Edmonton law firm, is a former football player for (appropriately) the Edmonton
Eskimos, and ex-talk show host and ex-alderman for the City of Edmonton.
Medicine, Rehab revise curriculum
UBC's Senate has approved a major
revision in the curriculum of the
School of Rehabilitation Medicine in
the Faculty of Medicine.
The new curriculum of the school
provides for separation of the existing
degree program into separate streams
to train specialists in either
occupational or physical therapy.
At present, the school's curriculum
provides for a preliminary qualifying
year of study followed by three years
of specialized studies leading to dual
qualification in both occupational and
physical therapy.
Under the new curriculum, students
who graduate with a degree in one
speciality would be eligible to continue
or return to their studies for an
18-month period to qualify in the
second area of specialization offered
by the school.
The question   of the degree
credential to be awarded to students
after completion of the new program
is still under discussion between the
Senate curriculum committee and the
school. The new curriculum will
probably be offered in the 1982-83
academic year, UBC Reports was told
by Senate curriculum committee
chairman Prof. James Richards.
Senate was told that discussion of
the need to offer separate programs of
study in occupational and physical
therapy had been under discussion in
Discovery Park signing near
The University is in the final stages
of negotiating a partnership to
establish a 58-acre research park on
UBC's south campus.
It is expected that a three-way
agreement will be signed next week

sponsored by the provincial
government to mark the conclusion of
more than a year of intensive

Discovery Parks Incorporated and the
Discovery Foundation.
Discovery Parks Inc. is a wholly-
owned subsidiary of the Foundation.
The Foundation was set up by the
Ministry of Universities, Science and
Communications to advance scientific,
technological and industrial research
skills in the province.
Discovery Parks have already been
established at Simon Fraser University,
the University of Victoria and the B.C.
Institute of Technology.
The day-long symposium at UBC
will be on "the future of gallium

Cominco Ltd.'s new plant to produce
pure crystals of the exotic compound

Gallium arsenide has been widely
identified as the material which will
usher in a "second wave" of integrated
circuits by replacing silicon as a semiconductor in the computer industry.

the school for a number of years and
had been precipitated by a number of
These included problems associated
with attempts to include any new
content in the existing curriculum,
which was already filled to the brim
with "basics"; excessive pressures
experienced by students trying to learn
the essential skills of two professions;
and pressures on the school to increase
its enrolment to meet the growing
need for therapists and a growing
number of qualified applicants.
A feature of the new curriculum is a
reduction from 73.5 to 58.5 in the
number of units a student would take
in the three years of professional
training leading to the degree.
This change "reduces excessive
pressure on students by keeping
academic units and the length of their
daily and term academic hours

Students who complete requirements
for the degree in, say, occupational
therapy and wish to qualify also as
physical therapists by taking an
additional 18 months of study would
be able to do so without having to
repeat any content already acquired
through the first degree or participate
in competitive admission to the school
for a second time.
Senate was also told that the revised
program meets standards required by
professional organizations, increases
content in the basic sciences,
occupational and physical therapy
theory, field work experience and
research skills, and permits faculty to
plan or revise courses on the basis of
sound educational principles.
