Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta r-vnday, Jcnucn, II. 1973 THE inHBUDS! HErALB _ 5 The U of L degree in arts and science Bv Owen G. Holmes, vice-president University of Lethbridge A few weeks ago, when the 'our-year ans and science arogram of the University of Lelhbridge was being ques- tioned by t h e L'niversily Commission, The Ilrr- ald asked ihe university to re-state and up-date its po- sition. This ivas done, in the following sialemrni by Dr. Owen Holmes, academic vice- president. Since it was uriuen, ihe commission extended for one more year its approval of the four-year program. The article therefore ha? losi its immediacy DUI is neverthe- less hprnntp nf jis significance to all concerned with the University of I.rih- bridge and the unique it is attempting to fill. The Universirv of has recen'Jy made ant decision to the -IP-course decree in end science imrceuced ir. tr.e of 1969 years c; care- ful Although a cecifion ;o tain an exis-ir- r.arn- lv seems esn'.] share-ring. :n this instar.ce U hs? been cered bv a con- irary opinion in ihe v.or.h Re- port, and more recently by the unerpeeied imrosion of '-he uni- versities commission. Therefore it is wil] to cop-sider how the decision was reached, why End to what effect. In response 10 the university's fiscal the oresirient struck an advisory cormniTtee in the JsU of :P71 to ensure scarce resources were bci7'? put lo the use. In iddJLion to of suggestions for economy ihai have now been effected, the co-miiree propos- ed that the faculty of arts and tcience rwxa-Tjne the nsture nf its degree curncu.un. as this u-as reaching e conciusicTi curing the fail seiarrLrr rf ihe universities iss.en r.T- prised the proposal that an opLcrsal short- er 30-OT-irse decree be L-'.ro- Finally in Noveniber the faculty of science rret to reconsider the nsiiTe of its program, and c-niirr.-ec :he course degree bu; a single neeaiive Subsequently this pcsiiioc WE? endorsed unanimously by the senior academic auihoriiy. the general facultJes council com- posed of professors, s'.udenis and adminisITBtors. As the final phase in the insiituUpnal re- view, the board of governors unanimously endorsed the con- clusion of the Ecsdemic council and transmitted the decision to the universities commission, along with the formal request that its proposal be withdrawn. As or ihis date the commis- sion has not reached B decision v''.h respect to the university's request." (see editor's note, ?bove b'.Tt it has noted Lhat there is insufficient time re- maining to plan and introduce any new degree program for ihe academic year 1973-7-1.
