 Extra $980,000 for UBC engineering school
UBC's engineering school has
received $980,000 of the $ 1.5 million
set aside by the Universities Council of
B.C. this year for engineering
expansion in the province.
The University of Victoria received
$320,000, Simon Fraser University
In turning the money over to UBC,
the UCBC said it was to be used for
planning the expansion of the
engineering school and for the
employment of faculty for the current
academic year.
The $1.5 million was a line item in
the UCBC 1981-82 budget. It has no
bearing on UBC's general purpose
operating grant, and does nothing to
alleviate the $7.2 million shortfall in
the University's annual operating
budget resulting from an arbitration
award to faculty of 18 per cent.
UBC's request for an additional $7.2
million from the provincial
government is being studied by the
Universities Council. The UCBC is also
studying the financial problems of
When it's not raining, October is a fantastic month for the color-conscious at UBC. The turning leaves, the falling leaves
and the fallen leaves, on a day of autumn sunshine, can even make one forget about the weather we've had this week.
Private donations near $10 million
Private donations to the University
of B.C. totalled almost $10 million for
the year ended March 31, 1981,
according to the annual report of the
Resources Office.
A total of 342 associations and
organizations contributed $3,192,005,
327 corporations gave $1,164,772, 76
foundations gave $2,958,158, 31
bequests totalled $940,257, and 1,701
individual donors gave the University
$1,672,955 (exclusive of the 6,109
Alumni Fund donors).
Of the total of $9,928,147, almost
two-thirds was designated to research,
$6,116,741. Capital items accounted
for $1,119,441, student aid received
$2,427,365, and $264,600 went to
In addition to the private financial
support, there were more than 100
gifts-in-kind, including a lithograph of
a Navaho painting, a Northwest Coast
print, alpine plants, a raven sculpture
and Southwest Asian and North
American artifacts.
Student support for the year ended
March 31 totalled $489,440. Students
gave $111,400 to the Aquatic Centre,
$308,565 to the Student Union
Building and $69,475 to the Graduate
Since 1928, students at UBC have
funded or helped fund 12 major
campus buildings by more than $6.6
million, a degree of support believed
to be unequalled by the students of
any other North American university.
New UBC bus route planned
A new crosstown Vancouver bus
route, for the most part to run along
King Edward Avenue and East 22nd
Avenue, has been approved in
principle by the Greater Vancouver
Regional District (GVRD) Board of
The proposed route would run from
the University of British Columbia east
as far as the Brentwood Mall Shopping
Centre in Burnaby. Service could start
by April 1982.
The new service must also be
approved by the City of Vancouver,
the Municipality of Burnaby, the
Urban Transit Authority (UTA) and
the Metro Transit Operating Company
The service will meet a high priority
need for an additional crosstown route
midway between those currently
operating on Broadway and on 41st
Avenue. The route will provide
convenient access for persons travelling
to a number of major institutions
along its length, including UBC,
Shaughnessy and the new Children's/
Grace Hospitals, G.F. Strong
Rehabilitation Centre, Burnaby
General Hospital, BCIT and a number
of schools and commerical centres.
Details of the proposed route,
including bus stops and shelters, will
be worked out in co-operation with
Vancouver, Burnaby and the MTOC.
The GVRD is responsible for transit
planning in the region and shares
responsibility for financing with the
provincial UTA. The actual operation
of the buses is done by the MTOC.

"We have set up a planning team to
determine how we might reach our
goal of 2,500 undergraduate
engineering students over the next six
or seven years," Dean Wedepohl said,
"assuming, of course, that the
provincial government will provide the
necessary funds."
Dr. Wedepohl cautioned, however,
that it may still be necessary to control
enrolment in engineering in 1982,
although he said the proposed
limitation of 450 students to first-year
engineering might be revised upward.
The enrolment limitation proposal,
approved by the UBC Senate in
September, was rejected Oct. 6 by the
Board of Governors. Senate, at its
October meeting, turned the question

The academic training of engineers
has been considered by all three B.C.
universities over a number of years,
with both UVic and SFU wanting to
establish engineering schools.
In March, however, a report of the
Universities Council of B.C. said UBC
should expand to 2,500 undergraduate
students before any second school
should be established. The report said
the second school should be at the
University of Victoria, "when the need
based on demand is clearly perceived."
The report also said that SFU
should continue to offer the first two
years of an engineering program that
enables students to transfer into
accredited engineering schools
At the present time, a number of
colleges and universities in the
province offer the first two years of
engineering as a 'feeder' system to

an 11-page report to the UCBC in
September on engineering education
at the University.
This report said present staff and
financial resources of the engineering
departments are adequate for a
maximum of 1,400 undergraduate
students — almost 400 below the
current level of enrolment.
"In 1981-82 the enrolment will be
about 1,800 and in 1982-83 about
2,000," the report stated. "The

Board approves 5-year
capital building plan
A five-year capital plan for building
projects (1982-87) to be funded
through the Educational Institution
Capital Finance Act has been
approved by the UBC Board of
Governors for submission to the
Universities Council as a planning
The Board also decided that
projects listed for 1982-83 will be
submitted to the council as requests
for funding.
These projects are:
• The Faculty of Medicine's share
of the eye centre at Vancouver
General Hospital (total area 64,000
square feet);
• The Laurel II project at VGH,
part of a major clinical redevelopment
of VGH   (32,000 square feet);
• The Faculty of Medicine's share
of research space at the new
Shaughnessy Hospital (part of a
project totalling 37,500 square feet);
• Additional space for the
Faculty of Dentistry. (25,300 square
• Public works and renovations.
Under the category of "Special
Projects" for 1982-83 is a
24,000-square-foot Fine Arts Gallery.
Special projects are those buildings
that would be used as community
resources as well as academic centres.
Meanwhile, two "first priority" jobs
and one "special project" approved by
the UBC Board of Governors earlier
are still awaiting approval from the
Universities Council.

pilgrimage will be made up the sacred
Adam's Peak.
The group will then visit the
Maldives, where the way of life has
changed little over the centuries. In
the Maldives the group will have
opportunities to assist the museum
staff in establishing a study collection
of contemporary arts and crafts.

Five other major construction
projects on campus are at various
stages of development.
The $5.8 million Home Economics
building is under construction, and
the $2.7 million Centre for Coal and
Mineral Processing is almost complete.
The $11 million Physics and Chemistry
building is at the working drawing
stage, and the $10 million Psychology
building is about to go to tender. Bids
for construction of a new bookstore
came in a million dollars over estimate
and the project is on 'hold' for a
second look.
Borrowing under the Educational
Institution Capital Finance Act has
been the major source of funds for
UBC construction during the past four
or five years, as the result of
government policy to increase the rate
of new construction beyond what
could be paid for by 'cash capital'.
The University, in effect, obtains the
funds by issuing a debenture to the
government under terms which assure
that the government will in turn
provide the funds to meet the interest
and sinking fund payments. These
debt servicing funds are separate from
the annual operating grant.
UBC construction approved by this
method in 1977 totalled about $25
million. The total was about $45
million in 1978, $9 million in 1979
and $20 million in 1980.
Money for capital projects,
including funds approved by the
government for public works and
renovations, is separate from operating
funds and cannot be used by the
University to alleviate any possible
operating deficit.
Here are the "first priority" items
for years two through five of the five-
year plan:
1983-84: Chemical Engineering
(32,000 square feet); Clinical
Medicine, completion of VGH Laurel

lead to a decline in the quality of

"Such a decline is unacceptable. Just

The report said that to ensure
quality for an undergraduate
enrolment of 2,000 students in
1982-83, UBC's engineering
departments would need an additional
$3 million — $1.5 million for teaching
staff, almost $1 million for support
staff and close to $500,000 for supplies
and expenses.
The report noted that
undergraduate enrolment has more
than doubled since the early 70s, yet
professorial and support staff has
remained virtually unchanged because
of funding restrictions.
"In fact, when measured in constant
dollars, the funds per engineering
continued from page 1
student have decreased by about 40
per cent over the past 10 years."
In the report, UBC posed the
question, "Can British Columbia
afford not to fund engineering
education properly?" and then noted:
"The answer is clearly 'no'. If we do
not provide the funds, we shall
become technological servants in a
world where prosperity depends on
technological expertise."
Dean Wedepohl said the extra
$980,000 received this year, welcome
as it is, could be seen only as a "first
small step" along the path leading to
the goal of 2,500 undergraduate
engineering students, as called for in
last spring's UCBC report.
"We certainly are grateful for this
money," the dean said, "and I
sincerely hope that is just the
beginning of a serious approach by the
Universities Council and the provincial
government toward adequate funding
of engineering programs at this
University." UBC Reports October 28, 1981
MLAs spend
day at UBC
Opposition leader Dave Barrett and
18 other Members of the Legislative
Assembly from the New Democratic
Party made it to UBC for NDP MLA
Day Oct. 16, despite heavy fog that
never lifted.
MLA day is a working day
periodically organized by the
University for MLAs. This year both
parties were invited to the University
on the first day of their annual party
convention in Vancouver. The NDP's
three-day convention began Oct. 16.
The Socreds, whose annual convention
begins Nov. 19, accepted their
invitation to visit the University but
have had to postpone it because of
negotiations over the constitution and
other work pressures. It will be
rescheduled for another date.
While on campus the New
Democrats had lunch with students
from their constituencies in the Place
Vanier Residence cafeteria, then had a
brief tour of the recently-opened Asian
Centre before attending a series of
workshops on topics of immediate
interest to them.
In mid-afternoon they adjourned to
the Faculty Club for a working session
with UBC President Douglas Kenny.
Dr. Kenny outlined current trends
within the University:
• Enrolment at UBC is increasing.
• Entrance requirements are
among the toughest in Canada.
• The average age of students is
increasing — about one-third of UBC
students are over 25.
• For the first time this year the
total value of research grants won by
UBC faculty exceeded the total for
McGill University, a tribute to the
quality of UBC faculty. Only the
University of Toronto now receives
more research money than UBC.
Dr. Kenny also dealt with the
financial problems of the University,
including the threat by Ottawa to
withdraw its cost-sharing with the
provinces for operating Canadian
universities, and implications of the
$7.2-million shortfall the University
faces as a result of the compulsory
arbitration award to faculty this year.
NDP members were enthusiastic
about the day and said they wanted to
return to the University soon. Some
said they were amazed at the amount
of expertise represented by the faculty,
and wanted to have access to it.
President Kenny said UBC's expert
knowledge is available to anyone. But
he emphasized that the University
would have to remain apolitical.
Among workshops attended by
MLAs were housing economics and
policy, social impacts of resource
policies, energy issues in B.C., trade
opportunities in East Asia, energy
project approval in B.C., and
alienation, polarization and the B.C.

It's a clean sweep;
three gold medals
The Science Council of British
Columbia has awarded three gold
medals for 1981 - all of them to UBC
The medals — known officially as
the Science and Engineering Gold
Medals — were presented Oct. 22 to
botany professor Dr. Clayton Person,
zoology professor Dr. David Suzuki,
and former physics professor Dr. John
Warren who is now professor emeritus,
In presenting the medals and
accompanying citations, the chairman
of the Science Council, Mr. Bob
Keyes, described Dr. Person as one of
the world's leading authorities on the
genetics of plant parasites.
"Some of the techniques he hay
developed for the improvement of
plant strains in their battles against
various pests are in use in agricultural
areas from North America to Africa
and Asia."
Mr. Keyes noted that David Suzuki
has also achieved renown for his work
in genetics, especially in relation to the
common fruit fly, and suggested that
California could use him right now.
"However, the award recognizes his
work in contributing to the
understanding and appreciation of
science to the public," Mr. Keyes said,
in a reference to Dr. Suzuki's work
with CBC. "His broadcasts, lectures
and writing at the popular level have
made him the best known scientist in
the country."
The Science Council chairman said
of Dr. Warren:
"Many colleagues and students
regard Dr. Warren as 'the father of
nuclear physics' in this part of
Canada. After an outstanding career
in England he came to Canada and
was instrumental in managing the
development of two key nuclear
facilities at the University of British
Columbia — first, the Van de Graaff
generator in the early 1950s, and then
This year's winners are the second,
third and fourth individuals to win the
prestigious gold medals since the
Science and Engineering Awards were
established last year. The only
previous winner is UBC physiologist
Dr. Harold Copp.
The winners were chosen by a
subcommittee of the Science Council
after consideration of a large number
of nominations sent in by members of
the academic community, people in
business and industry, and professions
and the general public. The
committee was chaired by Dr. R.E.
Bell, past president of the Royal
Society of Canada, and included
among its members the presidents of
all three B.C. universities.
In order to qualify for a B.C.
Science and Engineering Gold Medal,
an individual or research group must

of daytime students for the 1981-82
Winter Session.
A preliminary report on enrolment,
submitted to the UBC Senate Oct. 14
by the registrar, shows that the
number of daytime students as of
Sept. 30 was 23,591, an increase of
429 over the total for the same date
last year.
Seven of the 12 UBC faculties show
higher enrolment this year, with
Applied Science's increase of 174
students leading the way. The Faculty
of Graduate Studies is up 110
students, Medicine up 82, Science up
80 and Arts up 65. Education is down
88 students.
First-year enrolment is steady at
about 3700 students, despite a
tightening of entrance requirements.
For government statistical purposes,
enrolment as of Dec. 1 each year is the
official figure.
Meanwhile, the Association of
Universities and Colleges of Canada
(AUCC) reports that enrolment is up
across Canada. The following is
reprinted from AUCC Notes:
An unofficial survey conducted by
AUCC of enrolments at a sampling of
universities across Canada reveals

meeting the ministry of labor was
trying to encourage employer
participation in co-operative education
by making funding available to
municipalities, hospitals and
ministerial offices for the hiring of coop students during the summer.
John Spenser, manager of the paper
division of H.A. Simons
(International) Ltd., and chairman of
the UBC Co-op Employers' Advisory
Council presented three $75 awards at
the meeting to UBC co-op engineering

Donner grant welcomed by Education
The Donner Canadian Foundation
has granted $275,000 to the University
of British Columbia to establish a
program of Studies and Training in
Correctional Education over the next
three years.
In announcing the grant, Dr. Dan
Birch, dean of the Faculty of
Education, said:
"This award will support a program
of interdisciplinary research and
teaching dealing with educational
programs in correctional institutions.
We are gratified that the Donner
Canadian Foundation has agreed to
underwrite this innovative approach
involving the collaboration of faculty
members from several departments in
addressing the problems of educational
programming for prisoners. Because
problems of educational practice
involve areas of expertise which are
not found in any single department,
this multi-departmental approach is
most appropriate. The systemic
development of studies and training in
correctional education requires a
sustained effort by a team with a
continuing commitment to it. This
assistance from the Donner
Foundation will make possible such an
effort. The various research and
training activities comprised by the
program will be co-ordinated by Dr.
Bill Griffith who was instrumental in
developing the program."
The program is a team response to
a national need of some years'
standing. In 1977 a Parliamentary
sub-committee on the penitentiary
system in Canada observed that
"... although in recent years
criminality has been the subject of
much interest to sociologists and
psychologists, it has not attracted the
attention of many original or critical
minds in the field of education. There
is accordingly a need to engage the
interest of scholars in triis field. There
is a need to develop a body of research
and specialized knowledge on which to
In 1948, following an internal and
an external evaluation, the Education
and Training Division of the Canadian
Penitentiary Service concluded that "if
correctional education and training
are to attain maximum effectiveness,
then a substantial multi-faceted
approach to staff training and the
study of practice in this area is
Today, educational institutions of
various kinds are involved in
correctional education in a number of
ways. Some are conducting programs
at the elementary or secondary level,
some are operating university level
programs, and still others are engaged
in research projects. Although
individual research projects dealing
with various aspects of education in
correctional institutions have been
carried out by a number of Canadian
universities, the program of Studies
and Training in Correctional
Education is the first attempt to
establish a continuing
interdepartmental enterprise to focus
on a number of aspects of correctional
education and the continuing
development of correctional education
The program involves applied
research, training and professional
development of correctional educators,
faculty seminars, summer workshops,
distance education., and facilitation of
communication between the Faculty of
Education and the Education and
Training Division of the Correctional
Service of Canada. It is a team effort
of scholars from philosophy of
education, adult education,
educational psychology, higher
education, social studies education and
special education currently and it will
include other kinds of specialists as
additional training and research
activities are identified.
In addition to providing support for
establishing and co-ordinating the
program, the Donner Foundation
grant is underwriting three major
projects initially. The first project,
directed by Dr. Peter Cookson, is the
continuing professional development of
correctional education officers through
the designing, testing and utilizing of
a set of distance education modules
dealing with adult education of
inmates. The second project, directed
by Dr. Ian Wright and Dr. Jerrold
Coombs, is the developing, testing and
disseminating of curriculum materials
to improve inmates' practical
reasoning ability. The third project is
the identification of additional
university scholars whose interests can
be pursued effectively in the context of
correctional education, and the
identification of sources of financial
support for their proposed training or
research activities.
Under the terms of the grant,
support for the second and third year
is contingent upon the University
securing additional funding for the
program from other sources. UBC Reports October 28, 1981
