Gov't says no to
UBC's request for
additional money
UBC's request of last September for
more than $7 million in additional
funding to cover a shortfall in the
annual operating budget has been
turned down by the provincial
government       officially on Christmas
In a letter to UBC's president, Dr.
Douglas Kenny, Dr. William C.
Gibson, chairman of the Universities
Council of B.C., said he had been
informed by provincial education
minister Patrick McGeer that his
attempts to obtain a supplementary
warrant from the provincial cabinet
for the requested funds had been
Dr. McGeer informed Dr. Gibson
that the current state of the provincial
economy would not permit
supplementary expenditures this year.
Dr. Kenny said he was "very
disappointed'' with the government's
"I hope that the provincial
government and the Universities
Council will take UBC's request into
consideration when they are allocating
funds for the University for the
1982-83 fiscal year," the president
Dr. Kenny also said he expects to
receive "shortly" the report of an
advisory committee on retrenchment
chaired by Prof. Michael Shaw, UBC's
Purcell quartet

The Purcell String Quartet will be
performing on three occasions at UBC
this weekend, with a different guest
pianist each concert.
On Jan. 8 (Friday) they will feature
the music of Brahms and Genge with
pianist Robert Silverman; on Jan. 9
the music of Schubert, Pentland and
Faure will be performed with pianist
Jane Coop; and on Jan. 10 the quartet
will perform the music of Buczinski
and Dvorak with pianist Robert
Rogers. All three guest pianists are
faculty members in UBC's music
The three concerts take place in the
Recital Hall of the Music Building.
The Jan. 8 and 9 performances begin
at 8 p.m. and the Jan. 10 concert will
start at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets are $5 each or $12 for the
series. Tickets and information can be
obtained through the Department of
Music (228-3113).

He said the report would be made
public for the information of the
University community in a special
edition of UBC Reports.
Dr. Shaw's 13-member committee
was asked in September "to consider
the entire spectrum of the University's
programs and operations and advise
the president how best to preserve the
quality of education at UBC in view of
an expected annualized shortfall of
approximately $7.2 million in

UBC total
tops 34,000
for 1st time
UBC's official winter session daytime
enrolment is almost 24,000 this year,
and total enrolment for the fiscal year
is above 34,000 for the first time.
This year's total is 34,433 students,
an increase of 4 per cent over the
1980-81 total of 33,113.
All five categories of enrolment
spring session, summer session, winter
session daytime, winter session evening
and correspondence   - are higher this
year than last.
For the purpose of reporting to the
Universities Council of B.C., the
intermediary body between the
universities and the provincial
government, UBC bases its total
enrolment on the fiscal year, April 1
to March 31. Thus, this year's figures
include the 1981 spring and summer
sessions and the 1981  82 winter
sessions and guided independent study
(correspondence) totals.
Here are the totals for the five
categories, with the 1980-81 totals in
brackets: spring session   3,573 (3,015);
summer session 4,209 (3,917); winter
session daytime 23,879 (23,604);
winter session evening 1,315 (1,282);
guided independent study 1,457
Enrolment at the first year level this
year is 3,565, a decrease of only 52
students despite the full implementation in September of UBC's stiffer
entrance requirements. Students
coming to UBC from Grade 12
required a number of specific
academic courses, including French or
a foreign language to the Grade 11

Dr   Richard Splane of UBC's School of Social Work was honored twice in 1981
for contributions to the field of social welfare and national and international
contributions to social work education.  The first award came from the Canadian
Association of Social Workers and the second was presented to him at Hart
House at the University of Toronto, when he was one of six persons presented
with leadership recognition awards honoring the late Charles E. "Chick"
Hendry, former dean of Toronto's Faculty of Social Work.  The latter award
carried with it a handsome, woven wall hanging by Velta Vilsons, a well-known
Canadian weaver
Senate wants Culling added
The UBC Senate wants the advisory
committee for the selection of
presidential candidates to be increased
by one, which would make it a
24-member committee.
Senate, at its Deceinber meeting,
decided to recommend to the Board of
Governors that the president of the
UBC Faculty Association, Prof.
Charles Culling, be added to the
Also on the committee would be:
• The chancellor, as chairman;
• Four members of the Board of
• Three members of Senate, to be
elected by Senate;
• Four members of faculty, to be
elected by the Joint Faculties;
• Three deans, to be chosen by the

President Douglas Kenny's contract
expires June 30, 1983. He became
UBC's chief executive officer July 1,
1975. In 1978, two years before his
five-year contract was due to expire,
Dr. Kenny agreed to a three-year
extension, under the proviso that there
would be no further extensions of the
contract. UBC Reports January 6, 1982

Enrolment control backed again
The UBC Senate, at its December
meeting, approved for a second time a
proposal of the Faculty of Applied
Science to control enrolment in
The proposal originally was
approved bv Senate in September.   The
Board of Governors, however, rejected
the plan in October, sending it back
to Senate for reconsideration.
The re-"approved proposal now goes
to the Board again, on Jan. 26.
Here are the main points of the
(a) That the number of first-year
engineering students be limited;
(b) That the number of students
transferring into second-year
engineering from outside the faculty
be limited, in consultation with the
other B.C. institutions;
(c) That second-year enrolment in
each engineering program be limited,
with allocations into programs made
according to student preferences and
academic qualifications until each
program limit is reached;
(d) That the admission and
program registration limits be
reviewed annually and revised as
faculty resources change;
(e) That henceforth all students
entering first-year engineering be
advised at the time of acceptance that
point (c) above will apply from
September 1982 onwards;
(f) That in September 1982 the
number of students admitted to first-
year engineering be limited to 450 and
that the number of students admitted
from outside the faculty to second year
be limited to approximately 100
(g) That those institutions preparing
students to enter our second year
programs be consulted as soon as
possible and that every effort be made
to avoid hardship for individual
students in the transition period.
The report to Senate from the
Faculty of Applied Science noted that
the enrolment proposals "are a
reflection of the faculty's ability to
provide a quality engineering
education. When the limits are
adopted, a total undergraduate
enrolment of approximately 1,800
engineering students is expected."
Official enrolment figures for UBC,
released Dec.  1. show a total
enrolment in engineering this year of
1.725 students, of which 466 were
enrolled in first year.
"In other words,    the report to
Senate continued, "the proposed limits
will not lead to a reduction in
enrolment from present levels.
Furthermore, it must be noted that
the presently available resources are
really only adequate for a total of
1,400 students. Consequently, the
proposed enrolment controls will
perpetuate the existing crisis
experienced by the engineering
The report noted that engineering
enrolment has more than doubled
since 1973-74, and the resources of the
faculty have not kept pace. Most of
the increased enrolment has come in
electrical, civil and mechanical
"The relative lack of financial
resources has led to excessive class
sizes, large teaching loads and
inadequate facilities. As a result, the
accreditation of UBC's engineering
programs is being jeopardized. Should
the programs lose their accreditation,
UBC graduates would no longer meet
the academic requirements for
registration as professional engineers.
"The Faculty of Applied Science is
ready and eager to increase the
undergraduate engineering enrolment
in response to demands from students
and employers. However, the growth
must be orderly and supported by
appropriate resources."
The Faculty of Applied Science
offers nine engineering programs: bio-
resource, chemical, civil, electrical,
Negotiations break off
UBC teaching assistants will meet
tomorrow (Jan. 7) to consider job
action, following the breaking off on
Monday of contract negotiations with
the University.
The  Teaching Assistants   Union
(CUPE local 2278) already has served
72 hour strike notice.
Still at issue are three points
union security. TA input on the
teaching of courses, and tuition
Here are the respective positions:
Union security. The union wants
all members of the bargaining unit to
apply for union membership and pay
a $1   initiation processing fee . Each
member then would have 30 days to
apply for exemption.   The University
proposal would require all members of
the bargaining unit to complete an
option form indicating that they either
are already a member of the union,
wish to become a member, or do not
wish to join. "The option form would
authorize the deduction of dues,
mandatory under the B.C.  Labor
Code for non-members as well as
TA input. The union has rejected a
University clause which declares that
"the union recognizes that the
academic governance of the University
is vested in the Senate. The
responsibility for courses of
instruction, including the quality of
that instruction, is vested in faculty
members appointed by the Board of
Governors.   The union therefore agrees
not to promote any practices that
would infringe on the right of faculty
members to teach their courses as they
see fit."
Tuition waiver.   The union wants a
tuition waiver or rebate, equal to
either the fee for six units of
undergraduate courses or the
employee's total tuition fee, whichever
is less.   The union's point is that
members of other campus unions enjoy
this 6-unit tuition waiver.   The
University contends there is
considerable difference between full-
time career employees having the
opportunity to be occasional students,
and students (mostly full-time) who
are engaged for a limited period as
part-time employees.
All other points, including salaries,
have been resolved.
A mediator appointed early in
December by the provincial ministry of
labor was asked on Monday to report
out, a union spokesperson said. Until
the mediator, Richard Longpre,
officially reports out, no legal job
action is possible.
engineering physics, geological,
mechanical, metallurgical, and mining
and mineral process engineering.
The report to Senate also outlined
some of the difficulties experienced
now in engineering, as follows:
• Large classes, some with  100 to
150 students, are taught at senior
levels in electrical, civil and
mechanical engineering. Over 30 per
cent of all engineering classes in
1980/81 had enrolments above 60
students; the situation is worse in
1981/82. If each student in these large
classes was to ask just one question per
lecture, there would be no time for the
professor to lecture. Clearly these
enrolments are very much above
acceptable levels. "The classes cannot
be sectioned because there are not
enough instructors.
• The average number of
scheduled contact hours for
engineering professors is about 10 per
week. If one assumed that an
additional 20 hours arc needed for
preparation and marking, and that
about five hours are required for
administrative and committee work,
the total time commitment is about 35
hours per week. To that must be
added time for graduate student
supervision and research, out-of-class
consultations with students and
participation in professional
organizations. The time commitments
for engineering professors are therefore
very heavy, leaving few possibilities for
sectioning classes.
• The present working conditions
are making it difficult to keep the
present professorial staff, let alone hire
new staff. Some vacancies in electrical,
mechanical, and mining and mineral
process engineering have remained
unfilled for several years. Working
conditions and salaries appear to be
the greatest obstacles for recruiting.
• Some undergraduate laboratory
groups are so large that some students
must stand and watch rather than do
• Some teaching equipment is so
outdated that it no longer prepares
students properly for today's industry.
"The report also noted that all other
professional faculties and programs at
UBC have enrolment controls, and
that enrolment controls are common
for engineering programs elsewhere in

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the
Universities Council said the Council
had under study a provincial
government proposal that would
permit the University to borrow funds
to buy up the contracts of tenured
faculty members who might wish to
retire early.
"We haven't proved the actuarial
soundness of the plan,    the
spokesperson said.
President Kenny said he would not
comment on the provincial
government proposal until the details
of the plan were known. UBC Reports January 6, 1982

A crime-prevention program
initiated on the UBC campus last
summer will be stepped up in 1982.
Highlights of the program include:
• An essay contest on the topic
"Crime Prevention in Your

In addition to visiting UBC
computer facilities and sitting in on
lectures, the Laval students will visit
TRIUMF, the nuclear physics research
centre on the UBC campus, and the
adjacent B.C. Research centre, which
does applied and industrial research
under contract, UBC's Museum of
Anthropology and other Lower
Mainland industrial sites.

prevention activities in 1982. To date,
the student team has continued a 1981
summer project involving placing
pamphlets in unlocked cars on the
campus warning drivers that they are
prime targets for thieves.
Early in 1982, the team plans to
distribute pamphlets in campus
libraries and other buildings where
theft rates are high in a program
designed to increase vigilance among
members of the University community.

at more than $200 from cars parked
on the campus. Reports of thefts were
down by 78 per cent and 72 per cent
in July and August of last year as a
result of the program.
The same program also reduced
bike thefts on the campus by 33 per
cent and 15 per cent in July and
August of 1981.
As a result of the initiative of Sgt.
Fred Hardy of the UBC detachment of
the RCMP the crime prevention

A number of programs showed
enrolment increases well above >
average. On a percentage basis, the
biggest gain was the social work
program in the Faculty of Arts, which
climbed 25 per cent to 152 students
from 122. Nursing is up more than 11
per cent and engineering is up more
than 7 per cent.
Of the 23,879 students enrolled for

total of women is an increase of 389
students over last year, whereas the
total number of males is down 114.
