New plan
for UBC
UBC's administration has announced a plan to streamline and improve the efficiency of research administration, particularly in dealing
with matters of policy.
The reorganization provides for
establishment of an executive committee for research administration and
policy to replace the president's advisory board, its executive committee,
the major grants committee, the
University/industry liaison committee
and the committee on patents and
proprietary rights.
The new executive committee will
be chaired by the dean of the Faculty
of Graduate Studies, Dr. Peter
Larkin, whose appointment as
associate vice-president, research, was
approved by UBC's Board of Governors Oct. 7.
Members of the executive committee will be the vice-president for
academic development, Prof. Michael
Shaw, to whom Dean Larkin will
report, research administration officer
Dr. Richard Spratley, plus appropriate persons depending on the
subject to be discussed.
The reorganization also calls for
various subject area committees for
the health sciences, the natural and
applied sciences, arctic and alpine
research and the humanities and
social sciences, as well as screening
committees in such areas as research
involving human subjects, animal
care, biohazards and radioisotope and
radiation protection.
The effect of the reorganization will
be to reduce from 16 to 11 the number
of committees dealing with research
Dean Larkin said the reorganization
stems from the increasing importance
and the expanding amount of
research being carried out at UBC. In
the past five years, the total in grants
awarded to UBC researchers has
almost doubled.
These three members of UBC's Department of Metallurgy, Prof. Keith
Brimacombe, seated, acting department head Prof. Fred Weinberg and Prof.
E.B. Hawbolt have been honored by the American Society of Metals. They'll
receive the society's Henry Marion Howe Medal at the ASM's annual awards
dinner Wednesday (Oct. 29) in Cleveland, Ohio, for a paper they authored.
Prof. Weinberg holds the 1980 Alcan Award of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, which he received at the institute's annual meeting in
Halifax in "recognition of highly significant contributions to the advancement
of metallurgy in Canada."
A protective berm of rock, gravel,
sand and dune grass will be constructed along the base of the Point
Grey cliff at Tower Beach in the
spring as the second phase of an erosion control program that was started
this year by UBC.
The berm will stop any further erosion by the sea and thus will help to
stabilize the cliff and safeguard

Formula financing again
aired at Senate meeting
The use of a formula for allocating
provincial operating grants among
B.C.'s three universities got another
airing at the October meeting of
UBC's Senate.
At the end of an hour-long discussion last week Senate voted:
• To record its "deep concern" to
the Universities Council of B.C.
(UCBC), which uses a formula for
grant allocation, and to provincial
minister of universities, science and
technology, Dr. Patrick McGeer,
about the Council's three-year experiment with a formula that is enrolment
driven; and
• To establish an ad hoc committee
of Senators and other appropriate
people to consider alternatives to the
UCBC's grant allocation formula.
The committee has been asked to
focus on alternatives "which will recognize and help ensure excellence in
university education" in B.C.
The motions, which were presented
by dean of Commerce and Business
Administration Dr. Peter Lusztig,
stemmed from a discussion at the
September Senate meeting on the
report of the Senate budget committee, which drew attention to the
underfunding of UBC as the result of
UCBC's formula financing.
Speaking to the motions, Dean
Lusztig said the use of a formula for
allocating funds would make sense if
one were talking about the production
of running shoes or hamburgers.
"It is totally inappropriate for
university education," he said,
"because it reflects a complete absence
of concern about the quality of education."
The use of a formula, he added, is a
"real disincentive" to quality considerations because of a preoccupation
with a head count of students, with
the number of full-time equivalent
students and with relative enrolment
shifts within the three public universities.
Dean Lusztig also described as
"suspect" two assumptions which he
said were built into the formula.
These were that a trimester system was
more expensive to operate than the
sessional system used at UBC and the
University of Victoria, and the idea
that economies of scale are possible in
a university ("if you have more students, then you can train them more
He said the Council's research staff
should look at these issues, adding
that he knew of no studies that confirm either of the assumptions.
Any   university   that   pursues   and
supports quality pays "an extremely
high price," Dean Lusztig continued.
If we hold to or raise existing admission requirements, he said, the
relative shift of marginal students to
other universities which have different
standards will be rewarded under the
formula allocation of grants because
of the concern for the head count of
One could suggest, he said, that to
avoid future cutbacks, standards of
admission to the University and to
graduate programs should be lowered
and students enrolled in non-credit
courses should be offered credit in
order to increase the head count.
Under the UCBC allocation system,
Dean Lusztig said, 95 per cent of the
funds received from government were
allocated using the formula and 5 per
cent was held back to finance new and
emerging programs.
He said UBC was at a disadvantage
in the allocation of this 5 per cent for
two reasons — "we already have graduate programs in place which don't
qualify as either new or emerging"
and some programs rejected by UBC
as inappropriate have been funded at
other universities.
Senate's chairman, President
Douglas Kenny, said the report of the
ad hoc committee approved by Senate
should report by early fall in 1981 if its
recommendations were to have maximum impact on UCBC discussions
concerning formula financing.
A new, five-year program leading to
either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor
of Education degree in secondary
music education was approved by
Senate at its October meeting.
The new program, resulting from
two years of discussions between the
Faculties of Arts and Education, provides for the registration of students in
the Bachelor of Music program in
years one to three. In years four and
five, students proceeding to the Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree
with a music major will choose elec-
tives in Education, while those proceeding to the Bachelor of Music in
Secondary Music Education in Arts
will choose music electives.
Senate also approved a new program in Romance languages in the
Faculty of Arts to enable students to
attain a high level of proficiency in
two of the major Romance languages
(French, Italian and Spanish) and a
reading knowledge of a third with
some linguistic and literary background.
UBC anthropologist Dr. Michael Kew gives a final check to a unique display of
Indian rattles made by the Salish tribe of the Pacific northwest. The rattles,
which were used in cleansing rituals for the ill, are among 130 pieces of Salish
art which will be on display at the Museum of Anthropology until the spring of
Museum gathers Salish
art from many sources
The Museum of Anthropology is
currently exhibiting one of the most
exciting Indian art shows it has ever
housed. The exhibit, entitled Visions
of Power, Symbols of Wealth, is a collection of over 130 pieces of art produced by B.C.'s Central Coast Salish
Salish art has been neglected in the
past and there are relatively few pieces
left in B.C. The exhibit marks a significant effort on the part of the museum, and particularly by UBC anthropologist Dr. Michael Kew, who organized the exhibit, to bring Salish art
back to B.C. and make British Columbians more aware of the Salish culture.
Dr. Kew has assembled art pieces
from museums throughout the U.S.
and Britain. "This is the first time that
such a range and quantity of Salish art
has been gathered in one place," he
The Salish Indian tribes occupied
the Fraser Valley region and adjacent
areas on Vancouver Island, and areas
along the coast of the State of Washington. "One of the reasons that Salish
art isn't well known," says Dr. Kew, "is
because these were the most desirable
areas in the northwest, and they were
the first to be settled. The Salish culture suffered from outside influence
quite a while before other Indian cultures in B.C."
Another reason Salish art hasn't enjoyed the same popularity as Haida or
Kwakiutl art in the northwest, according to Dr. Kew, is because Salish Indians didn't produce art for decorative
or trading purposes. Their art objects
were used in private and religious rituals. "Therefore," says Dr. Kew,
"there were fewer art objects produced, and the Salish people were very
reluctant to give them to outsiders.
They were usually passed down in
Most of the pieces in the exhibit
were made in the late 19th century.
Dr. Kew has assembled sculptures,
rattles, spindle whorls, textiles, house-
posts and mortuary effigies for the exhibit.
Dr. Kew explains that the title,
Visions of Power, Symbols of Wealth,
reflects two important aspects of
Salish culture. "Often artists would
make an art object from images they
saw in a vision. Salish people believed
that visions had supernatural power,
and these visions were very important
to them, but they also believed that
they shouldn't talk about them. Instead they shared the vision through
the piece of art.
"The art objects were also symbols
of wealth in the Salish culture. The
more wealth or power an individual
had, the more elaborate his possessions were."
Faculty approves four-year engineering program
UBC's engineering school, enjoying
a record first-year enrolment, wants a
four-year undergraduate program.
The Faculty of Applied Science last
week approved in principle in a near
unanimous vote a four-year program.
At present the engineering school, the
only one in B.C., has a five-year and a
four-year program leading to a
bachelor's degree. The present accelerated four-year program is for exceptional students.
The faculty's proposal will now go
to Senate. The earliest the new program would go into effect is
September, 1983, to allow secondary
schools to make necessary adjustments.
The move toward a full four-year
program in the school began at least
three years ago. One faculty committee recommended a four-year program as long ago as 1962.
First year enrolment in the school
this year is 493. In the past few years it
has been between 410 and 420. But
even this year's record enrolment is
deceptive, because about 100 students
enrolled in other institutions will
transfer into the school.
Students at Simon Fraser University
and Selkirk, Cariboo, Malaspina, New
Caledonia and Okanagan Colleges
can take first-year science and first-
year engineering before transferring
to the second-year of engineering at
Allowing for attrition, the number
of students already registered will
result in about 475 graduating
students in 1984. This brings the participation rate of students in engineering in B.C. up to the national average.
Both Simon Fraser University and
the University of Victoria are applying
to the Universities Council of B.C. for
engineering schools. The major argument they have put forward is that the
number of students graduating from
UBC isn't sufficient to meet provincial
But these figures are based on the
number of graduates up until 1978
and ignore the larger enrolments of
the past few years and of this year's
record registration.
Based on current enrolment figures,
the supply of graduates from UBC will
be in balance with provincial demands
as early as 1983.
UBC Dean of Applied Science
Martin Wedepohl has presented
UBC's position in the September issue
of The B.C. Professional Engineer,
published by the Association of Professional Engineers of B.C., and in
speeches in communities in the Interior.
Dean Wedepohl says it would be
more cost efficient to strengthen the
one existing engineering school in the
province before financing additional
He emphasized that high technology research will have to be done if the
Canadian economy is to successfully
compete in the international marketplace. This research will mean a
greater demand for engineers trained
at the post-graduate level.
He said the program of training
engineering students during their first
years at community colleges should be
expanded. The dean also maintains
that it makes more economic sense to
strengthen the graduate program of
the UBC school before creating
another undergraduate program in
the province. UBCreports

Programs integrate academic
life with workplace experience
"The academic training a university
offers is extremely valuable, but in
addition, students need a chance to
apply what they've learned in job-
specific situations. The purpose of our
programs is to provide this connection
with a work environment while the
students are still undergraduates."
The speaker is Mrs. Maryke
Gilmore and the programs she is referring to are the Co-operative Education
and Internship Programs at UBC,
which she co-ordinates.
The Co-operative Education Program is open to first-year Science
students who are planning to enter
first-year Forestry or Engineering.
The program integrates supervised
work experience in the summer months with the students' academic studies
during the winter session.
The Internship Program is for
students in the Faculties of Arts,
Education and Commerce, and involves establishing students in work
situations during the winter session to
obtain practical job experience
related to their field of study.
"It's good for students to be out in a
working environment while they're
going to school because it gives them a
sense of what's going on in the working
world and how fast it's changing," says
Mrs. Gilmore. "It's also important for
students to discover they have something to offer an employer."
The Co-operative Education Program began three years ago in the
former Dean of Women's Office, and
was initially just for women. The program was so popular with both
students and employers, however, that
it was expanded to include male
students as well.
Students in the program undertake
three consecutive summer work
placements related to their academic
studies. "This is definitely not just a
job placement program though," Mrs.
Gilmore emphasizes. "The students
are selected by faculty advisors, they
attend workshops on writing resumes
and coping in a work environment
and they must write a technical report
at the end of the summer which is
graded by a faculty advisor."
In addition, the students are evaluated by their employer in terms of
the quality of their work, and traits
such as initiative, dependability,
organizational skills and ability to get
along with co-workers.
The Engineering and Forestry Coop faculty advisors give students advice on their technical reports and visit
them at their summer placement site,
where they have an opportunity to
meet the student's supervisor.
"The Co-op Program is a good opportunity for UBC to keep in contact
with the business community," says
Mrs. Gilmore.
Another reason for the visits is to
give the students a chance to talk
about any difficulties they may be
having on the job. A Forestry student,
Kathy Kerr, who was working in
Williams Lake this summer, said the
faculty advisors provided "both technical advice and emotional support."
Denise Duncan, a second-year mining and mineral process engineering
student, says, "the Co-op Program
helped me decide what I wanted to do
with my career when I was in the
Science faculty. It got me started in an
engineering office and helped me
establish contacts. When I graduate
I'll have four summer's experience in
mining engineering."
In the summer of 1980, 62 students
(33 women, 29 men), 20 Co-op faculty
advisors, and 31 employers were involved in the program. Employers
included B.C. Hydro, MacMillan
Bloedel Research Ltd., the provincial
Ministry of Forests, H.A. Simons
(International) Ltd. and Noranda
Mines (Bell Copper Division).
Several of these employers are participating on an Employer Advisory
Council, which has been recently
formed by UBC to assist in the planning and further development of the
Co-op Program.
Work experience isn't the only advantage of the Co-op Program. It is
also an opportunity for students to
clarify the field that is best suited to
their skills and interests.
"Not all students go into the field
that they were planning to before their
summer work," says Mrs. Gilmore.
"One Science student was planning to
enter electrical engineering, but after
his summer work he decided to stay in
the Science faculty and pursue computer science. Other students change
the branch of engineering they
thought they were best suited for. The
program is also successful, I think,
when students find out they're not
suited for a certain field before they
spend four years of study in that
The Co-op summer work placements are now listed in the UBC
course calendar as non-credit courses
(APSC and FRST 110, 210 and 310),
and students in the program will have
a notation on their transcripts to
indicate that they have successfully
completed the three summers.
"Students who complete the program usually have a strong commitment to the profession they are entering," says Mrs. Gilmore, "and employers recognize this." According to a Coop employer at B.C. Hydro, students
who invest time in the program end up
"head and shoulders above others."
Unlike the Co-op Program that involves work in the summer months,
the Internship Program provides work
placements for Arts, Commerce and
Education students during the winter
session (recommended work periods
are September to December and
January to April).
Mrs. Gilmore and her staff contact
agencies at UBC and around Vancouver and arrange for students to
work four to eight hours a week on a
non-paid basis to gain job experience
in their area of interest.
"I am a firm believer in the liberal
arts program," says Mrs. Gilmore.
"But it is harder for these students to
get specific job training as undergraduates. The Internship Program
gives them a chance to apply the
organizational, analytical and
research skills they have acquired in
their academic training to a particular
The Internship Program has over
50 positions for students this year in a
variety of fields. If a student is interested in working in television, there is
a position at Cable 10 to assist in
research and script-writing. There is a
job at IBM for someone interested in
economics to do business forcasting
using computer modelling. Or if a student wants experience in politics, a
position is available to assist an alderman with research for city planning.
Employers involved in the Internship Program include the provincial
Ministry of Human Resources,
CKVU, the Civil Liberties Association, The Bay, the Maritime Museum,
City Hall, Statistics Canada and MacMillan Bloedel.

and work
The success of the Co-operative
Education and Internship Programs
at UBC is largely due to the hard work
and organizational talents of co-ordinator Maryke Gilmore.
When Mrs. Gilmore came to UBC
in 1977 to fill the position of assistant
to the Dean of Women, the Co-operative Education Program was just
being initiated. (Mrs. Gilmore came
to UBC with her husband, Paul
Gilmore, who had been appointed
head of the computer science department.)
She took over the job of setting up
the Co-op Program when the first coordinator left that same year. She also
set up career orientation counselling,
which included the Internship Program. The Co-op and Internship Programs grew so rapidly, involving men
as well as women students, that last
year the University approved the creation of a separate office to handle the
growing amount of work necessary to
carry out the programs.
Mrs. Gilmore did her undergraduate work in comparative literature
and English at the Universities of
Amsterdam and Toronto, and at
Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
She earned her Master of Arts and
Teaching degree from Manhattanville
College in New York and taught at
various high schools in the state.
In 1973 she was appointed director
of admissions at Sarah Lawrence College and three years later she became
director of career counselling and
field work at the college. In the latter
position, Mrs. Gilmore carried out
programs similar to the Co-op and
Internship Programs.
"I'm fascinated by being able to
provide links for students between the
academic and the work environment,"
she says. "And I really enjoy working
with students in a counselling-related
Jane Koch, a second-year Forestry student, was among the 62 students involved
