Perspectives and Plans for Graduate Studies. 16. Biophysics 1974.
Ontario Council on Graduate Studies, Toronto. Advisory Committee on Academic Planning.
In March, 1973, after a review of the Ontario universities' three-year plans, a provisional embargo was placed on doctoral work in biophysics. A full-scale assessment with outside consultants was not necessary in the case of a provisional embargo. Instead, the method used to remove the embargo was self-study by the discipline group leading to a report to the Advisory Committee on Academic Planning (ACAP), which, in turn, makes recommendations to the Council of Ontario Universities (COU). The report is one of a series of disciplinary studies whose emphasis is on forward planning, and it is hoped that the implementation of COU's recommendation will help to ensure the more ordered growth and development of graduate studies in Ontario's universities. The monograph includes the"Biophysics Planning Study" containing specific recommendations concerning biophysics graduate studies; the graduate programs established and proposed in Ontario prepared by the discipline group; and the universities' comments.
