Kennedy steps down
Forestry dean sought
Forestry Dean Robert Kennedy has
announced he does not intend to serve
another term as head of his faculty. Kennedy, whose six-year term of office expires June 30, will continue as dean until
a replacement is named.
A search

been struck, but it
could take as long
as a year before a
new dean is appointed, Kennedy
A professor in
the department of
Kennedy Harvesting and
Wood Science, Kennedy was an instructor at UBC in the late 1950s after receiving his Master's degree here. He later
taught at the University of Toronto, returning to Vancouver to work in the federal government's Western Forest Products Laboratory (now Forintek), where
he served as director. He joined the UBC
faculty in 1979.
Meanwhile, Political Science department head David Elkins has been named
Acting Dean of Arts, to replace Robert
Will, who steps down at the end ofthe
month to return to teaching.
Elkins, a specialist in political parties
and issues, voting patterns and public
opinion, joined the department in 1969
and was named head in 1985. His term as
acting dean runs from July 1,1989, until
June 30,1990. Professors John Stager
and Anne Piternick have agreed to continue as associate deans.
In the Faculty of Education, Robert
Morford is vacating his position as Director of the School of Physical Education
and Recreation after 11 years. Physical
Education Professor Robert Schutz will
serve as acting director until a new director is named.
Elsewhere, William Webber, Dean of
Medicine, has had his term of office
extended for one year while the search for
a new dean is conducted.
David Dolphin has also agreed to an
extension of his term as Acting Dean of
Science until September, when it is expected that a successor will be announced.
New legal foundation
to enhance database
Bringing the legal profession into the
computer age is the aim of the new UBC-
based Legal Information Systems and
Technologies Foundation (LIFT).
The creation of the foundation follows the successful completion of an
IBM-UBC cooperative agreement that
saw members of the university's law
faculty pioneer new and innovative applications for computers in the legal system.
Funding for (he new foundation totals
more than $4.6-million, believed to be the
largest contribution to a law school in the
history of Canadian legal education, said
LIFT President John Hogarth, a professor
in the Faculty of Law.
UBC is contributing more than $ 1.4-
million to the foundation in release time,
space, computing and cash.
The foundation's mandate for its first
three years includes producing a comprehensive international trade and business
database to assist the private sector in
export marketing, Hogarth said.
It also aims to further develop the
sentencing database, which allows judges
to call up on a computer screen all the
information they need to sentence convicted criminals, saving days of tedious
searches through law libraries.
The foundation will also develop
computer software with applications to
the legal field and data systems and technologies for faster, less expensive and
better quality legal information. Hogarth
said the aim is to improve the administration of justice and increase accessibility
to the legal system.
' "The fact that legal researchers at
UBC were asked to create the nationwide database system for international
trade and business, which includes details
ofthe Free Trade Agreement, is a coup for
Western Canada," said UBC President
David Strangway.
Project directorforTRADEREF, as
the trade database is known, is Chris
Thomas, the assistant Law professor who
worked with former Trade Minister Pat
Carney during the Free Trade Agreement
Funding partners for the foundation
include the federal departments of Communication, Justice and External Affairs,
the office of Western Economic Diversification, the Attorney General's office,
the provincial department of International
Business and Immigration, IBM, B.C.
Telephone Co., the Gandalf Corp. and
several Vancouver-based law firms.
300 Chinese
at UBC
fear action
in homeland
It was a research trip like no other for
Asian Studies Professor Michael Duke.
Instead of quiet study in libraries on
his visit to China, Duke found himself
swept up in the student-led democracy
movement and was finally forced to flee
the country in the wake of the brutal
government crackdown.
The massacre of students in Tiananmen Square and the imposition of martial
law has also angered more than 300 visiting Chinese students and scholars at
UBC, many of whom now fear for their
And the upheaval has thrown into
doubt a number of university programs
involving China.
"It's certainly a relief for me to be
home, but it's not a relief to think about
what I've left behind," Duke said on
arriving in Vancouver June 9, after a
harrowing week in Beijing. Roadblocks
had forced him to turn back twice as he
tried to reach the airport.
Duke arrived in China May 18 for
three months of research on contemporary Chinese writers. But he had to abandon much of that work, including 17
tapes of interviews, because he feared it
violated martial law and would put him in
jeopardy if seized by officials.
His greatest concern, however, is for
the future of Chinese academics and students who must now face a hostile government.
' 'This has affected me very profoundly.
I'm going to do all that I can to plead the
cause of the democracy-seekers and dissidents," he said. "I won't go back to
China until there is a monument in Tiananmen Square to honor the students who
were killed there."
At press time, three faculty members
were known to be in China, all in Shanghai. They were David Quastel, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Lila Quastel,
Occupational Therapy, and Conrad
Schwarz, Psychiatry.
About 20 other UBC faculty had recently returned from China, said Larry
Sproul, director ofthe university's International Liaison Office.
' 'There's quite a lot of traffic between
China and UBC, especially in the summer," he said. Faculty go to China to do
research, attend conferences, lecture and
work as specialists on development projects, said Sproul.
Dr. Grant Stiver, of the Infectious
Diseases division, Faculty of Medicine,
recently returned after spending three
weeks in May at a Beijing hospital working on a Canadian International Development Agency project.
Other members of his department were
set to visit Beijing in July, but a directive
from the Association of Universities and
Colleges of Canada has advised postponing such projects.
Dr. Stiver said that for the sake of the
Chinese people, he hoped that aid and
development projects from Canada continued.
' T think we should stick with China.
I'd go back right now if I could,'' he said.
Meanwhile, Chinese students at UBC
fear reprisals if they sign a petition pro
testing against their government's actions.
Students are collecting signatures for
a formal protest to the Chinese government to show support for student demonstrators and to condemn government attacks, said a Chinese graduate student
who did not wish to be named.
But according to friends and family in
China, the Chinese government is gathering names of student protest leaders. Some
Chinese students on campus are afraid
that putting their name on a letter will lead
to harassment and persecution when they
return, the student said.
Almost all of the 207 Chinese students
studying at UBC are government sponsored and there are fears that if the situation escalates, the government will recall all nationals studying overseas.
In the event of government actions
against Chinese abroad, the group most
severely affected will be 100 visiting
scholars from mainland China, most of
whom are in mid-career and have families at home.
UBC President David Strangway called
events in China "a tragedy."
"I share with university presidents
across the country a concern with how we
can assist (Chinese students and visiting
scholars) in grappling with the repercussions of events unfolding in their home
country, including questions regarding
passport and visa renewal and financial
support," Strangway said in a letter-to
External Affairs Minister Joe Clark.
"As we at the University of British
Columbia work with our students and
scholars from the People's Republic of
China to determine how we can best
assist and support them through these
troubled days in their lives, we need to
know that we can count on the support
and guidance of the Canadian government."
Strangway also asked Ottawa to take
steps to ensure the safety of Canadians
still in China.
Last week, about 600 people packed
the Old Auditorium for a memorial service held to mourn the death of students
killed by government troops.
Chinese students and scholars, local
politicians, faculty members, student
representatives and UBC Vice-President
Academic and Provost Daniel Birch
donned black armbands and white carnations to join in the condemnation ofthe
Chinese government.

Faculty of Arts Dean Robert WW. steps down June 30 after 14 years in the post
Arts essential,
Will believes
The sizeable desk is cluttered with
stacks of paperwork, the odd widget
and a small wooden elephant
"I know where everything is,"
says Faculty of Arts Dean Robert Will
confidently, as he surveys the filing
system which will be disbanded and
archived when he steps down from his
post June 30.
His ability to instantly recall information, colleagues say, is one of Will's
"He has an amazingly retentive
memory," says Economics Professor
Ronald Shearer.
"What has always impressed me
is how well he always does his homework," adds Richard Tees, head of
the Psychology department.
"He is able to speak in a sophisticated and passionate way on any issue."
Will, 58, is leaving a job he has
held since 1975 and will return to full-
tune teaching in the Economics department following a year-long leave
of absence.
An economist who specializes in
the history of economic thought Will
joined the UBC faculty in 1957. He
was appointed assistant dean in 1969
and acting dean in 1974.
Although he has headed UBC's
largest faculty for 14 years, Will doesn't
want to single out one accomplishment above others that he would like
to be remembered for.
"My priorities are motherhood priorities: The maintenance of the highest academic standards in all our degree programs and putting our students first What is important is what
happens in the classroom," he says.
Will maintains his long-held view
that the liberal arts are an essential part
of the life of any university.
"No one will go on record as saying the liberal arts are not an integral
part of the university experience,'' he
' "The question really is, when the
chips are down, when the allocation of
resources has to be made, whether
people's verbalized support of the arts
is in fact translated into the kind of
support that is needed in order to keep
the arts healthy.
"I believe mat UBC is a very good
liberal arts institution. The liberal arts
and the creative and performing arts at
this university have served our stu-
dents as well, if not better, than most of
die other large universities in Canada."
But standards must be maintained if
the university wishes to continue generating positive educational experiences
for its students, he says.
"How long can you go on with an
erosion ofthe resources and its inevitable impact on teaching and the classroom experience before it really shows
Diminishing resources also detract
from faculty research, although he notes
that the Faculty of Arts has maintained
its successful record in research funding.
Statistics from the Social Sciences
and Humanities Research Council for
the 1988-89 Research Grant Competition show that UBC had the highest
success rate when compared to other
large Canadian universities, with 68
successful applications.
"One of the comforting things about
those particular statistics is that, despite
having less than optimal conditions,
the faculty have responded to the situation and they have not reduced their
research output comparatively,'' he says.
The unwieldy and disparate Faculty
of Arts, with its numerous departments
and professional schools, is a challenge
for any administrator.
Ronald Shearer says Will has a gift
for management
"UBC was under terrible financial
pressures during a large part of his
deanship. He conducted very skillful
management of the finances of the
Adds Richard Tees: "He's been
overseeing the activities of more than
500 faculty members in 23 different
departments and schools and I think
that is extraordinary in itself."
Will intends to spend much of his
year-long leave catching up on reading
that will prepare him for teaching.
Basil Stuart-Stubbs, director ofthe
School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, says Will reads "right
across the board. He even reads the encyclopedia, I'm told."
"The man has a very fast mind," he
adds. "He is also as tough as nails."
Will admits to being stubborn.
"I've always been a counterpoiser
- one ofthe things that is needed sometimes.
' 'I look at myself as being a UBC
person. I've been here all my life and
I, like many people, have got an intense
loyalty to the place," he says.
"When someone, often an uninformed critic, says something about
UBC, I react as if they are saying
something about my family. I have

UBC training camp
11 set for science olympiads
Eleven of Canada's top high school
science students - including three from
B.C. — have been selected at a training
camp at UBC to represent their country in
the International Chemistry and Physics
The olympiads are prestigious academic competitions that each year bring
together teams of students from more
than 25 countries.
UBC has been involved with the program for four years, working at the national and provincial levels to train and
develop teams over a period of several
months. Two UBC science faculty
members, Michael Crooks, Physics, and
Gordon Bates, Chemistry, will coach the
by Burr
Actor Raymond Burr has admonished
graduating UBC students to reject new
technology and trends that do nothing to
enhance life.
Burr, who received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree at the 1989 Congregation ceremonies, told students that change
for the sake of change has become the
norm in everything from politics to literature.
' 'The result is that a society that offers
junk food, junk mail and junk bonds now
also offers junk news and junk trends,"
he said.
He did not spare television, the medium that made him famous in the series,
Perry Mason and Ironside.
' 'Television is often fatuous, it is often
too slick, it is often an insult to our intelligence," he said.
But Burr also praised television for
increasing public awareness of social justice
and human rights.
' 'Issues and decisions regarding social justice resound about us day after day
because of television. And by revealing
political corruption, police brutality and
racism, television has evoked outrage
throughout society," said Burr.
Average citizens, he said, are more apt
to march in the streets today to declare
their positions on the great issues ofthe
day because of television.
UBC President David Strangway, who
introduced Burr, called him a man for all

model for generations of aspiring courtroom lawyers.
UBC also bestowed honorary degrees
on John Macdonald, chairman of
MacDonald Dettweiler, David Johnston,
retiring Principal of McGill University,
William Holland, UBC Professor Emeritus of Asian Studies, Robert Rogers, former B.C. Lieutenant Governor and Frank
Iacobucci, Chief Justice ofthe Federal
Court of Canada.

Letters to the Editoi
Strangway replies
Dear Senators:
I am pleased for the opportunity to comment on issues raised by members of
Senate from the Faculty of Arts. (UBC Reports, May 31,1989.)
Like you, I believe that excellence in the arts and sciences is fundamental to our
mission of becoming a world class university. The resignation of Dean Will is
regrettable in light of the continuing development required in the Faculty of Arts.
The Search Committee being established for a new Dean of Arts will undoubtedly
focus on those qualities of leadership and support which you have identified.
The recent years of financial problems have been difficult for the University
Community. I can assure you that all parts of the University have had to reduce
expenses. These cuts have not been applied uniformly across the faculties or
within faculties, and there is no evidence that the Arts has suffered disproportionately. '"'  '' " ': ••.••.:
For your information, below are the budget FTE faculty figures for 1983/84
and for 1987/88. Please note that in 1983/84, 28.3% of the total faculty
complement was in Arts, and in 1987/88,29.6%. Ofthe twelve faculties, Arts
experienced the 5th smallest cut over that period on a percentage basis. The
manner of applying the reductions was left to the Dean and was based on faculty

In 88/89, the strategy for balancing our budget involved three key elements:
- a faculty salary settlement of 8% in total
- a cut of 1 % in both the academic and non-academic parts of the university
- a special tuition fee increase of 5%.
The result ofthe recent arbitration award of over 9% to faculty, along with
necessary reallocation, means that we face further cuts in 89/90.
The Faculty of Arts received support from the Funds of Excellence program
in areas including Pacific Rim Studies, Arts Administration, Atmospheric Science
and Film Studies. These funds and positions will be added to the Arts base budget
These choices were based on faculty priorities and will add 12.25 positions to the
budgeted FTE faculty. In addition, Arts initiatives are a substantial feature in the
current fundraising campaign.
I look forward to the selection of a new dean who will continue to build on the
considerable strengths ofthe Faculty of Arts as he or she sets the priorities with
the Faculty.
