More than 3,000 receiving UBC degrees
The University of British Columbia's
annual Congregation takes place
today, tomorrow and Friday, with
more than 3,000 graduating students
having academic degrees conferred
upon them by Chancellor J. V. Clyne.
Largest single graduating group are
those receiving the degree of Bachelor
of Arts, which will go today to 585
students. There are 403 graduating
with Bachelor of Science degrees, 339
with Bachelor of Commerce degrees,
334 with Bachelor of Education
degrees and 300 with Bachelor of
Applied Science (Engineering) degrees.
The annual degree-granting
ceremony in the War Memorial
Gymnasium follows traditional lines.
Jorge Piedrahita makes some last minute adjustments to make sure that sister, Luz, looks her best for graduation ceremonies.
Luz and Jorge make it six for six
UBC's 1981 spring Congregation will
be a special time for Dr. and Mrs.
Raul Piedrahita of the South
American country of Colombia and
their family.
Since 1973, the Piedrahita's six
children have all come from Colombia
to study at UBC, and the final two
members of the family to receive
academic degrees will do so at this
week's graduation ceremonies.
Luz Piedrahita will receive her
Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology
today and on May 29 her brother,
Jorge, will receive a Bachelor of
Science in Agriculture degree.
"Our family heard about UBC
through our sister Olga," explains Luz
Piedrahita. "She was swimming in the
Pan American games in 1971 and she
met some members of the Canadian
rowing team who later sent her a UBC
Calendar. Our brother Raul and our
sister Maria came first to UBC and
four months later Olga came out.
"When Maria was studying at UBC,
she had to be hospitalized for a while,
and her teachers brought work to the
hospital for her so she wouldn't fall
behind. My father decided that the
rest of us could come here if this was
how well students were treated."
Since 1976, not a year has gone by
without one member of the Piedrahita
family receiving a degree at
Congregation. In 1976 Maria
Piedrahita earned a B.A. in
psychology, in 1977 Raul Piedrahita
Jr. earned a B.A.Sc. in bio-resource
engineering and Olga Piedrahita
McRadu received a B.Sc. in
horticulture. In 1978 Agustin
Piedrahita received a bachelor's degree
in agricultural economics and his wife
Diana earned a B.Sc. in genetics. In
1979 Raul Jr.'s wife Maryluz received a
M.Sc. in food science and in 1980
Raul Jr. was awarded his Master's
degree in bio-resource engineering.
This summer both Luz and Jorge
are working on campus. Luz has a
permanent job in the Department of
Psychology where she has worked for
the previous three summers assisting
with labs for Restricted Environmental
Stimulation Therapy. Jorge has a
summer job in the poultry science
department as a research assistant.
Dr. and Mrs. Piedrahita have
travelled from Colombia to attend this
week's Congregation.
The graduating students, whose
degrees were officially approved by the
University Senate on May 20, are
presented individually to Chancellor
Clyne by the deans (or delegates) of
the faculties awarding the degrees.
The student then crosses the
platform and kneels before the
chancellor, who taps the graduand
lightly on the head with his mortar
board while saying "I admit you."
At this point the student has
officially graduated and been admitted
to the Convocation of the University,
which is made up of all graduates, the
faculty and Senate of the University
and the chancellor.
Standing on the chancellor's left
during the ceremony will be UBC's
president and vice-chancellor, Dr.
Douglas T. Kenny, who will present
medals and other awards to
outstanding graduates after their
degrees have been conferred.
At today's ceremony, students will
receive doctor's degrees in musical
arts, master's degrees in arts, fine arts,
music, social work, business
administration and library science,
and bachelor's degrees in arts, fine
arts, home economics, music, social
work and commerce, and licentiates in
In addition, the honorary Doctor of
Laws degree will be conferred upon
Tommy Douglas, former national
leader of the New Democratic Party,
and upon internationally-acclaimed
soprano Elly Ameling.
On Thursday, students will receive
Doctor of Education degrees, master's
degrees in education, physical
education and science, and bachelor's
degrees in science, education, physical
education and recreation.
Harold Wright, chairman of the
Canadian mining and engineering
firm Wright Engineers Ltd., receives
an honorary Doctor of Laws degree
Thursday. He was a sprinter on the
1932 Canadian Olympic team and is a
UBC graduate.
On Friday, May 29, final day of
Congregation, Doctor of Philosophy
degrees will be conferred. Students will
also receive master's degrees in applied
science, engineering, architecture,
nursing, forestry and law. Bachelor's
degrees will be conferred in science
(agriculture), applied science,
architecture, nursing, science in
forestry, and science (pharmacy).
Doctor of Medicine, Bachelor of
Science in Rehabilitation Medicine,
Doctor of Dental Medicine and
Bachelor of Laws degrees will also be
conferred on Friday.
Honorary degrees on Friday will go
to Edmund Desjardins, a quadriplegic
who pioneered the development of

'Coping' program helps women
Returning to campus life after being
out of the educational system for a few
years can be a bit overwhelming at
first. To combat this, the Women
Students' Office is offering a program
called "Coping with Campus" to help
women who are planning to enter
UBC after being away from school for
five years or longer.
The program is divided into three
sessions. Participants will meet other
prospective students and current
students in session one, and familiarize
themselves with the campus.
Session two will be an 'information
fair', introducing participants to
resources on campus for such things as
child care, reading, writing and study
skills, health and counselling services,
academic advising and registration.
Suggestions for working effectively
through time management and setting
priorities for home and school will be
discussed in session three.
The program will be given on June
9, 10 and 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. and will be repeated on June 10,
17 and 24 from 7 to 10 p.m.
The program is free but pre-
registration is necessary. You can sign
up at the Women Students' Office,
located in Room 223 of Brock Hall or
give them a call at 228-2415.

Kenneth Wilson, retired supervisor of operations for UBC's Botanical Garden for 11 years from 1969 to 1980, had the honor
of planting a shrub to dedicate the new 30-acre Asian Garden officially opened on May 12. Garden contains UBC's principal
collection of rhododendron species, many of them rare. Mr.  Wilson was also presented with third honorary life membership
in the garden. Looking on at left is Dr. Roy Taylor, Botanical Garden director, and in background, Chancellor J. V. Clyne,
left, and President Douglas Kenny. Access to new Asian Garden is via a tunnel under Southwest Marine Drive from Main
Botanical Garden adjacent to Thunderbird Stadium.
Priorities listed for campus
Immediate forward planning on six
new campus building projects has been
recommended by the UBC Senate's
Committee on Academic Building
Needs Committee.
The projects approved at the May
Senate meeting are designed to
overcome current acute space
shortages in seven UBC academic units
and "serious structural inadequacies"
in the building which houses the
Department of Geophysics and
The committee has recommended
that priority be given to meeting the
space needs of the Faculty of
Dentistry, the Departments of
Chemical Engineering, Biochemistry,
Physiology and Geophysics and
The sixth project recommended by
the committee is a new Studio
Resources Building to recognize the
"long-standing needs of the
.Departments of Fine Arts, Music and
The committee included the
following comments on the proposals:
• Identification of a high priority
for the Faculty of Dentistry "reflects a
current acute shortage of office and
graduate teaching/research space";
• Chemical Engineering's priority
reflects a current acute space shortage
and is "independent of any proposals
with regard to expansion of the
engineering program at UBC, which
would also involve other engineering
departments"; and
• The inclusion of Biochemistry
and Physiology recognizes space
shortages attributable to their
involvement in Faculty of Science
degree programs and which are
unrelated to the current medical
school expansion;
The committee also reaffirmed the
acute space needs of projects which
have already been approved as part of
UBC's current five-year capital plan.
These will provide new space for the
Faculties of Agricultural Sciences and
Forestry, the Departments of
Psychology, Chemistry and Physics and
the clinical departments of the Faculty
of Medicine.
The committee also identified the
Departments of Civil, Mechanical and
Electrical Engineering in the Faculty
of Applied Science as units where
there is a clear indication of acute
space shortages in the near future.
Units identified as having current
and anticipated space shortages
solvable through reallocation and
renovation of existing space are the
Schools of Architecture and
Community and Regional Planning
and the Department of Computer
The committee's final category lists
units whose needs are largely related
to the poor quality of existing
buildings. Identified are: greenhouses
for the Department of Plant Science,
the Faculty of Education, the Institute
of Animal Resource Ecology and the
Departments of Mathematics,
Oceanography and Geophysics and
A major undertaking of the
academic building needs committee in
recent months has been a campus-wide
review of academic space needs,
Senate was told by Prof. Victor
Runeckles, head of plant science and
chairman of the Senate committee.
He said the committee had adopted
an approach recommended by the
Universities Council of B.C. for
justifying requirements for new space.
The UCBC formula is based on a
formula developed by the Council of
Ontario Universities.
An advantage of the UCBC
formula, he said, is that input data
are available in several existing
campus data bases, which must be
updated regularly.
This led to approval by Senate of a
committee recommendation that the
University place priority on
maintaining an up-to-date space
inventory and on improving the
classifications of room types and of
academic activities associated with
courses offered.
Also approved by Senate was a
recommendation by the committee
that UBC undertake a study of the
feasibility of constructing flexible
"University resource space" to
accommodate on a short-term basis
academic units which are experiencing
acute shortages of space. Such space
could also serve as a means of
accelerating demolition of existing
sub-standard buildings, the committee
to open
The spectacular new Asian Centre,
symbolic of UBC's growing role as a
major Pacific Rim university will be
officially opened at 2:30 p.m. on
Friday, June 5.
Participating with Chancellor J. V.
Clyne and President Douglas T. Kenny
will be B.C. Premier William Bennett,
Senator Ray Perrault, His Imperial
Highness Prince Noruhito Mikasa and
His Excellency Dr. Saburo Okita
representing the government of Japan,
and Joseph Whitehead, chairman of
the Asian Centre Fund Executive
The public is invited to the opening
ceremony, reception and building tour
which will follow.
Among the festivities will be a tea
ceremony in the Urasenke style by
Mrs. Soshin Watanabe, a display of
Asian art by the Canadian Society for
Asian art, and performances by Kala-
Mandir of B.C. — a South Asian
musical group, the Vancouver Chinese
Music Club, the Katari Taiko
Vancouver Japanese drum group, and
Teresa Kobayashi will give a
performance of Japanese Koto.
Public tours of the Asian Centre will
also be offered on Saturday and
Sunday, June 6 and 7, from 2 to
5 p.m.
Occupying the building will be
UBC's Department of Asian Studies,
the Institute of Asian Research and
the Asian Studies Library. There will
also be space for the Asian interests of
UBC's Departments of Music, Fine
Arts and Theatre.
The Centre will be very much a
public building, serving both
community and University groups with
Asian academic and cultural interests.
As well, the structure is expected to
become a focal point and a source of
visible pride for British Columbia's
Asian communities. They will have
access to the Centre's facilities which
include an auditorium with seating for
220, a music studio and two exhibition
The idea of the Asian Centre
originated as a centennial gift from
Japan to the people of British
Columbia. Tbe girders supporting the
high pyramid roof were donated by
the Sanyo Corporation after their use
at the 1970 World's Fair in Osaka.
Funds for construction of the Centre
at UBC 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. Total cost,
including the interior finishing, was
$5.4 million.
Vancouver architect Donald
Matsuba has incorporated more than
47,000 gross square feet within the
original Sanyo shell, by developing
four levels, two of them below ground
level. The Centre's spectacular roof,
based on traditional Japanese rural
design, is topped by a symbolic
pagoda-style chimney.
The surrounding landscaping was
designed by Prof. Kannasuke Mori of
Chiba University in Japan. UBC Reports May 27, 1981
Two deans
to liaise
on housing
Two UBC deans have been
designated by Senate to make
representations to the property
committee of the Board of Governors
on actions the University might take to
solve the problem of recruitment and
retention of faculty members caused
by Vancouver's current housing
Dean William Webber, head of the
Faculty of Medicine, and Dean Peter
Lusztig, head of Commerce and
Business Administration, will act as
liaison persons between Senate and the
Board's property committee, which has
been designated the "proper forum for
discussion of housing problems."
Senate voted at its April meeting to
request that a joint Board-Senate
committee be formed to consider the
difficult housing situation. Dean
Webber said the medical school had
lost many potential recruits because of
the Vancouver housing shortage.
Recreation? Try the campus
If you're looking for recreation this
summer, don't overlook the UBC
campus. From concerts and plays to
public swimming and garden strolls,
the University offers lots to see and do.
For instance, Stage Campus '81,
UBC's summer stock theatre company,
will be presenting three plays this
summer. The first production will be
Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt, running
from June 10 to 20. From July 8 to 18
Hot-L Baltimore by Lanford Wilson

summer, or you can enjoy a stroll
through one of the many components
of UBC's Botanical Garden. The
Botanical Garden includes the
Japanese Nitobe Memorial Garden and
the Rose Garden, which are both
approaching their loveliest season.
Earlier this month two new gardens,
the Asian and Physick gardens, were
officially opened. The Asian Garden
houses the principal rhododendron
collection of the University, along with
other special collections, and the
Physick Garden is devoted to
medicinal and pharmaceutical plants.
The Frank Buck Sundial, located in
the main Botanical Garden, was also
opened to the public this month.
