This report is one of a series of disciplinary planning studies carried out by the Advisory Committee on Academic Planning of the Council of Ontario Universities. The emphasis of the report is on forward planning, and it is hoped that it will help ensure the more ordered growth and development of graduate studies in Ontario's universities. This report deals with all aspects of chemistry. Recommendations suggest: (1) the facilities for graduate work in chemistry in Ontario be sufficient to cater to the likely number of suitable Canadian students together with a component of foreign students; (2) the desirability of maintaining and improving the overall quality of Ph. D. study by concentrating it in a smaller number of programs should be seriously examined; (3) action be taken by the provincial government to facilitate the active involvement in research work of faculty members of departments not authorized to offer Ph. D. programs; (4) departments intensify efforts to share equipment, to introduce joint programs, to cross-appoint some faculty members, to build complementary areas of strength, and to avoid undesirable duplication; (5) the field of analytical chemistry be reinforced in some departments in Ontario universities; (6) universities ensure the existence of adequate criteria and procedures for determining which individual faculty members should act as supervisors of Ph.D. theses. Nine additional recommendations and the reports of the Council of Ontario Universities are included. (Author/MJM)
