The main way we accomplish this task is through the people we educate — undergraduates for professional careers in land management, graduate students for service in science, and professionals who require updating in the latest scientific information so they can perform their jobs at the high level expected by society. The "student-first" organization of this year's annual report emphasizes the defining role students have in the Faculty. During 1994/95, the Faculty supported students by: • sustaining a high level of performance in teaching, • initiating new programs specifically relevant to current societal needs, • developing a new admissions policy, • raising funds specifically for student aid, and • making new faculty appointments to support our rapidly growing Natural Resources Conservation Program. Each of these activities is discussed briefly below. Sustaining a High Standard of Teaching Continuous improvement requires regular feedback on performance. Through a formal survey instrument we ask students to evaluate each of their courses each semester. The accompanying figure shows that last year the average for the faculty changed a bit to 2.28 but is still closer to "Very Good" than to "Good". Faculty members receive the results of these evaluations for tlieir courses along with their comparative ranking with others. Teaching performance figures heavily in faculty promotion and salary decisions. Very Good 2.0 - Good 3.0 - 80/81 82/83 84/85 86/87 88/89 90/91 92/93 94/95 Student evaluations of Faculty of Forestry teaching 1980/81 -1994/95 (Note: 1 = Excellent, 2 = Very Good, 3 = Good, 4 = Fair, 5 = Poor, 6 = Very Poor) Increasing the Relevance of Undergraduate Education The application of advanced technology is critical to the long-term success of Canada's forest products industry, and indeed its economy more broadly. This year, in close cooperation with our Forestry Advisory Council, the Faculties of Forestry and Applied Science developed a new program in wood products processing. In a Canada-wide competition the National Education Initiative of the Wood Products Industry selected this program as the one the Canadian forest products industry would support. The five-year co-op program we proposed will provide the education and experience needed for young people to enter challenging careers in value-added manufacturing industries ranging from high-technology sawmills, remanufacturers, architectural millwork, and die furniture 1994 Annual Report 1 and cabinet industries. By pushing the limits of change, the committee leading this development — Professors David Barrett, Thomas Maness and David Cohen from the Department of Wood Science and Professors Sidney Mindess, Peter Lawrence and Gary Schajer from the Faculty of Applied Science — was able to arrange the program so we can accept the first students in the fall of 1995. Following the successful model of external consultation pioneered in the wood products processing program, we have initiated a "blank page" review of our professional forestry program. A small task foice, led by Professor Gordon Baskerville, has surveyed a wide range of our alumni, members of the ABCPF and other individuals from the natural resource community to determine the most critical needs facing practicing forestry professionals today. The results from this survey, supplemented by focus group analysis, will provide the basis for a complete revision of the program. One possible outcome is a return to the five-year format UBC supported until 1986, but with a post- baccalaureate credential awarded on successful completion of the fifth year. This year we graduated the first students from our B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation) program. The enormous interest in the program by excellent students indicates that it is responding to a palpable need. The pioneer graduating class has helped us reflect on the changes needed to hone the program. During the upcoming year we will review the program with the idea of implementing necessary modifications in the fall of 1996. This fall the first students will register in the Diploma in Forestry (Advanced Silviculture) program we now offer in conjunction with the Silviculture Institute of British Columbia. Last August we were able to attract Mr. Gordon Prest as the Faculty's first Coordinator of First Nations Forestry and Natural Resources Conservation programs. Gordon has met with many First Nations groups in the province, and has helped the faculty understand First Nations issues with much greater clarity. You can read more about this important program on page 12. Modernizing Admissions Standards In response to greatly increased demand for entry into the Faculty of Forestry, three years ago we were forced to limit admissions into the Forestry and Natural Resources Conservation programs. Demand has steadily risen (we had over 800 applicants last year, but can accept only 85 students into Year 1 of these programs) and with it the minimum grade-point average needed for admissions. Of course, enrolling students with better and better academic qualifications strengthens the profession of forestry. At the same time, we arc certain that this ever-higher grade-point standard excludes some students who would be excellent professionals when measured by such characteristics as leadership, capacity to communicate and perseverance. Combined with the known uncertainties in measuring academic performance by high school grade-point averages (GPAs), these considerations lead us to develop a pilot project for admitting some students on the basis on criteria other than GPA alone. Judging by the overwhelming, favourable public response we have heard, this new policy seems to respond to a clear societal need. We will implement the policy this fall and will discuss the results in next year's Annual Report. Raising Funds for Student Support As a result of the excellent prospects for responsible professional employment both during the summer and after graduation (last year 96.9% of our graduates were either employed or studying for advanced degrees; see page 7), students in the Faculty of Forestry face a somewhat smaller financial burden to complete their education than do students in some other faculties. However, steady inflation in the costs of operating the university and less-than-commensurate increases in provincial funding are forcing up the tuition and fees that students must pay. Anticipated cutbacks in the federal support for higher education will put additional upward pressure on tuition costs. In response to these trends, we have heightened our efforts to secure meaningful summer employment for students (especially those in the Natural Resources Conservation program where the pathway to summer jobs is less well trod than it is for Forestry students), and have placed student 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry support as a prominent need in our faculty development plan. These efforts have been rewarded by five new scholarships: • Backman Awards in Natural Resource Conservation • Janet Ketcham Scholarship for First Nations students • ABCPF First Nations Award • Pacific Regeneration Technologies Silviculture Scholarship, and • Namkoong Family Fellowship and Teaching Exchange & Research Award. One of the most gratifying efforts in this regard is Professor Gene Namkoong's decision to donate $110,000 of his Marcus Wallenberg Prize to the Faculty of Forestry for a graduate fellowship. His generosity was matched by a contribution of $95,000 by the B.C. Ministry of Forests and $50,000 by the Canadian Forestry Service. New Faculty Appointments In addition to the new faculty appointments announced last year, Professor David Tindall joined the Faculty with one third of his appointment in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology. We have an active search for a faculty member in the area of conservation planning/policy, and are currently searching for two faculty jointly with Landscape Architecture (one with an interest in landscape-scale forest planning and the other with a site-planning focus). In addition, with the support of the Ministry of Forests, a number of forest products companies, two environmental organizations and NSERC, we are seeking two faculty members in population genetics to deal with education and research in genetic conservation, biodiversity and tree breeding. During the upcoming year we will commence searches for faculty members in forest operations (jointly with the Forest Engineering Institute of Canada), and in advanced wood products processing. This level of faculty renewal — much of it funded outside of the University's budget — will provide die teaching and research strength needed to support our expanding student population. Service through excellence. Putting students first. These themes underlie our capacity to help society solve its forestry problems. Never have these problems been more critical. Young people understand the importance of the forestry problems to our society, and have responded by enrolling in the Faculty of Forestry in record numbers. At the same time, continued pressure on provincial budgets and the impending collapse of federal support for post-secondary education in Canada truly challenge our ability to keep the Faculty's capacity abreast with societal demands. I am personally interested in your thoughts on how we are dealing with these changing demands. You can reach me by telephone at (604) 822-2467, fax at (604) 822-8645, or e-mail at binkley@unixg.ubc.ca. I look forward to hearing from you. Clark S. Binkley Dean, Faculty of Forestry 1994 Annual Report 3 UNDER- GRADUATE STUDENTS THE Faculty of Forestry offers a 4-year degree program in each of the following five areas: • Forest Resources Management — B.S.F. • Forest Operations — B.SE. • Wood Science and Industry B.Sc. (Forestry). • Forest Science — B.Sc. (Forestry). • Natural Resources Conservation B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation). PROGRAMS OF STUDY Forest Resources Management This major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources biology and manage- ment to include resources such as timber, range, wildlife, recreation, fisheries and water. Students deal with the unique characteristics of each resource, their interactions, and the manipulation of forests to yield a variety of desirable products in (lie context of the social and economic environment of Canadian society. The program prepares graduates for careers in responsible integrated forest management as a professional forester. KOZAK, A.

Coordinator of First Nations Forestry and Natural Resources Conservation Programs Phone: (604)822-2727 Fax: (604)822-8645 Forest Operations This major prepares the graduate for profes- sional forestry responsibilities, with an emphasis on planning, design and administra- tion of forest harvesting operations. Areas of study include: design and construction of forest roads and drainage structures; selection, planning and supervision of logging systems; site protection and rehabilitation; and the development of computer applications for harvesting systems. Wood Science and Industry This major provides a strong technical back- ground in wood as a material and a good understanding of wood products manufacture, marketing, engineering and utilization. There are three areas of concentration: • business management and marketing; • industrial process technology; and • science, engineering and biotechnology. Ihis major will be replaced by the new Wood Products Technology program in the fall of 1996. Forest Science This major is for students interested in more specialized study of the scientific principles related to the growth, development and ecology of forest species. Emphasis is placed on basic and interactional phenomena that influence the establishment, growth and development of trees and other forest resources. These include gene- tics, soils, weather and climate, tree form, tree function, ecology, microbiology and other foundation courses in entomology, pathology, silvics, silviculture and fire science. Natural Resources Conservation This program prepares students for careers in the conservation of renewable natural resources, the management of protected areas, and planning for the integrated use of forests and associated wildlands. Students leave the program with an appreciation for the socio- economic and biological environments in which decisions concerning the management of protected areas are made, and a working knowledge of technologically advanced tools and quantitative techniques available to renewable resource planners and managers. PROGRAM CHANGES IN 1994-95 The fourth year of the Natural Resources Conservation degree program was offered, with a small group of students completing their programs. Several forest technology graduates entered the new three-year degree program in Forest Operations. PLANS FOR 1995-96 The Faculty will implement a new broader- based admissions policy for applicants to the B.S.F. degree programs from high school. This policy will allow for approximately 15% of the students to be admitted on the basis of supple- mentary criteria. We will monitor the progress of these students to determine the success of the broader-based admissions. We will complete the professional curriculum review of the B.S.F. degree programs, with possible recommenda- tions for some curriculum revision, and also begin a curriculum review of the Natural Resources Conservation degree program. In preparation for the introduction of the new Wood Products Technology program in 1996/97, we will teach a modified curriculum for the first two years of the existing Wood Science and Industry program. The modified curriculum will allow students to enter the program in the 1995/96 session. 4 UBC Faculty of Forestry Total Enrolment Enrolment for undergraduate students (in all four years of die forestry programs) is up again this year from 400 to 452 students.

DEGREES GRANTED Graduate Students 1994 Annual Report 11 FIRST NATIONS FORESTRY & CONSERVATION PROGRAMS WITH the formal recognition of aboriginal rights by the B.C. Provincial Govern- ment and die imminent resolution of the aboriginal land question dirough die interim measures and B.C. Treaty Processes, the B.C. First Nations people will be influencing resource management decisions in the future much more than they have in die past. To date, very few aboriginal people have received formal training and education in forestry or other natural resource sciences. This has restricted dieir ability to participate effectively in provincial land management decision making and resource harvesting activities. There is clearly a strong need to have professionally trained First Nations Foresters and Natural Resource Managers in diese fields. As a first step in meeting this need, the Vancouver Foundation and the Ministry of Forests are supporting a program to increase First Nations participation in the programs being offered in the Faculty of Forestry. The program was officially established on August 15, 1994 widi the appointment of Gordon W. Prest as the First Nations Coordinator. Mr. Prest is of Coast Salish ancestry from die Sto:lo people and comes widi over 25 years of related experience as a Forest Ranger and Operations Manager widi die Ministry of Forests and five years as a First Nations Educator with the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology. We have designed a coordinated program of activities to meet the needs for professionally trained First Nations people in the natural resource science fields. The program: • Reaches potential First Nations students widi accurate information on careers in forestry and conservation, • Facilitates die entry of First Nations students into the UBC Faculty of Forestry programs, • Supports First Nations students while in study at UBC, and assists graduating students in career counseling and job placement. Gordon W. Prest Coordinator of First Nations Forestry & Natural Resources Conservation Programs ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1994-95 • Meetings widi key individuals from post- secondary institutions, colleges and First Nations organizations to explain forestry and natural resources conservation programs for First Nations students at UBC. • Contacts widi forestry and aboriginal organizations. • Meetings with UBC Forestry Faculty members to discuss die introduction of a First Nations perspective into current courses. • Initial development of a proposal to fund a 2-day international conference on curriculum development. PLANS FOR 1995-96 • Establish a First Nations Advisory Committee for the Faculty. • Implement one-day First Nations cultural awareness workshops for Faculty members. • Coordinate die development of a 3-credit course on First Nations perspectives on resource management for delivery at UBC in January 1996. • Organize and seek funding for international conference on incorporating First Nations perspectives into forestry and natural resource curricula, to be held in summer of 1996. • Participate in new First Nations Professional Sciences Access Program.

Plackett Director THE BC Forestry Continuing Studies Network has now been in operation for nearly four years. It has six offices — the Provincial Office in the Faculty of Forestry at UBC responsible for overall management of the organization and coordination of province-wide training initiatives and five delivery centres responsible for organizing training activities around the province at institutions with forestry/ natural resource programs: • Selkirk College, Castlegar • University of Northern British Columbia, Prince George • University College of the Cariboo, Kamloops • Malaspina University College, Nanaimo • Northwest Community College, Smitliers. Each office has an advisory board whose members provide valuable input on a range of operational issues and the affiliated institutions also play a constructive role. The principal role of the Network remains coordination of the delivery of continuing edu- cation in sustainable natural resource manage- ment throughout the province on a consistently high-quality basis. One of the driving forces behind the creation of the Network back in 1991 was a need to re- dress the inconsistencies in availability, quality and cost of continuing education in forestry. The continuing increase in the numbers of province-wide training activities organized by Network staff is an indication of the recognized value of a consistent approach. Other trends include an increasing involvement of Network staff in the planning and organization of confer- ences and workshops. Although the initial focus of Network training was the professional and technical audience in forestry, more activities are now being organized for the forest worker. In addition, Network staff are more frequently being asked to participate at an early stage in the design and development of training initiatives. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1994-95 One major activity in 1994 was the coordinated delivery of the five modules of Forest Practices Code training for staff in the Ministry of Forests, the Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks, the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans as well as a small number of industry representatives. The 1994/95 fiscal year was marked by an increase in the number of requests for the delivery of training to forest workers. In addi- tion, the Network Director was asked to help with the development of the Forest Practices Code Awareness Training for Forest Workers. Number ot Registrants 25,000 91/92 92/93 93/94 94/95 Number of registrants in Network-organized training courses 1991/92 - 1994/95 This past year has seen a diversification of funding sources with the initiation of several major projects under the Watershed Restoration Program. In addition, the Network and the Association of B.C. Professional Foresters have worked together successfully on a number of initiatives this year. PLANS FOR 1995-96 The highest priority continues to be the identi- fication of new opportunities for continuing education in natural resource management. As in the past, the focus on improving the cost- effectiveness and increasing the range of Network services will continue.

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1994-95 • A complete review of the structure and content of the forest management program was initiated in late 1994. A small internal Task Force appointed by the Dean have examined the program and surveyed a broad range of the community with respect to the expectations of graduates. This will result in proposals for changes in die undergraduate management curriculum by mid-95. • There was increased activity in partnerships through university/industry/government funding of collaborative research on terrain stability assessment. • Brought forestry problems to die agenda of engineers through a special session on Forestry Geotechnique at the 48th Canadian Geotechnical Society conference. PLANS FOR 1995-96 Promotion VAN KOOTEN, G. Casey — promoted to Professor effective M y , 1995. Retirement DOOLING, Peter J. Dr. Dooling retired on December 31, 1994 after 27 years with the Faculty of Forestry. During his service to UBC, Dr. Dooling was instrumen- tal in developing the Faculty's program in resource recreation. He saw the provincial park system's expansion to northern B.C. and die recreational land use industry's growth to include wilderness, recreational waterways, coastal management for recreation and national trail systems. • Following completion of die program review noted above, diere will be a fast track approach to introducing changes in die professional curriculum. • Dr. Ron Woznow, Adjunct Professor, is developing a Centre for Environmental Labelling to provide a common database for ecolabelling and policy analysis around the world (e-mail ecolabel@unixg.ubc.ca). • The Department is currently recruiting for five faculty positions to support both die conservation and forest operations programs. We hope to have these in place in die fall of 1995.

Silviculture Forester Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Maple Ridge THE UBC Malcolm Knapp Research Forest at Maple Ridge and die Alex Fraser Research Forest at Williams Lake support research, education and demonstration in die practice of forestry. The Faculty of Forestry manages diese forests as outdoor scientific laboratories for students and researchers. Since 1949 scientists from UBC and elsewhere have conducted more than 625 research projects on the Malcolm Knapp Forest and over 92 research projects on die Alex Fraser Forest. Not only do these research projects yield valuable data, but they also support our education and demonstration programs. The Faculty holds two field schools annually on the Research Forests, one for diird year students at Alex Fraser in die fall and one for fourth year students at Malcolm Knapp in the spring. Harvesting operations continue to play a major role in the management of both forests, and harvest volumes are maintained at sustaina- ble levels consistent widi die needs for research, education and integrated use. Revenues from harvesting partially finance die maintenance and operation of both forests. We offer continu- ing education programs, in the form of short courses and field trips at both forests. The Forest professional staff participate in teaching academic courses in die Faculty. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1994-95 Donald D. Munro Director Alex Fraser Research Forest The primary focus was to keep abreast of the tremendous changes in forestry happening diroughout British Columbia. Because diis research forest is operated on crown land under tenure, die impact of provincial policy has been significant. The Commission on Resources and Environment, die Cariboo Land Use Plan, die Forest Renewal Plan, and especially die Forest Practices Code are major governmental initia- tives which will impact significandy on opera- tions. Harvesting was curtailed to bark beetie salvage with approximately 2,439 m 3 cut. Since the creation of die forest, bark beede infestation salvage has accounted for over 30% of the total volume harvested. Silviculture programs con- tinued with planting of approximately 17,200 trees, and stand tending on 120 ha. Seventeen new research projects were initiated by Faculty, staff, and students from UBC plus investigators from odier colleges and government agencies. Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Researchers initiated a total of 18 new projects, mostly in familiar aspects of forestry. However, diis year tiiere were some unusual and exciting projects, these included: • The use of insects in determining time of deadi of homicide victims and/or illegally killed wildlife, • Medicinal plants of aboriginal peoples, and • The UBC/Laval liquid-mirror telescope. The Forest obtained approval to seek funding for die Loon Lake Camp redevelopment proposal. Harvesting was confined to road construction, rights-of-way construction and wind dirow salvage. The Board of Governors approved a Research Forests Endowment proposal and revenues totaling nearly $550,000 from the three year accelerated harvest program (completed in 1994) were directed to this endowment. PLANS FOR 1995-96 The highest priorities include a continuing emphasis on encouraging significant scientific research projects, increasing flexibility of die harvesting programs and securing contributions to the endowment fund. The Malcolm Knapp Forest will implement an urban interface management plan on a trial basis and will complete planning for the Loon Lake Camp redevelopment. The Alex Fraser Forest plans to construct 6 km of new roads, identify a site for an office and headquarters, revise die Manage- ment and Working Plan and complete die wildlife plan.

Howard Director OUR desire to increase die Faculty's participation in international research and training activities conies at a time when domestic demands for bodi teaching and research have reached all-time highs. This necessitates a slow, step-by-step approach to insure tiiat our international work actually enhances our capacity to serve domestic needs. An important step towards reducing die com- petition between obligations at home and opportunities abroad is financial independence. This year, for die first time, all of die core fund- ing for international programs was obtained from external sources, and prospects for continued self-sufficiency are excellent. Early in die year we completed our strategic plan which bodi die Faculty's Executive Committee and the external Forestry Advisory Committee approved. The plan is designed to increase die involvement of Faculty in inter- national projects on a strict cost-recovery basis. It calls for the creation of working groups made up of two or more Faculty members widi shared interests eitiier geographically or topically. These teams will meet regularly to develop strategies and plans of action for developing and executing programs of research and train- ing. A China working group has already been formed and work has begun to investigate ways to increase our activities in this region of the world where British Columbia has such strong ties. Another important initiative — planned widi die help of die President's Office — is die internationalization of die undergraduate program. This project has diree components: internships, student exchanges, and die development of a joint degree program in International Forestry. The demand by our students for increased exposure to international issues and opportunities for study and work has never been higher. In cooperation widi die newly formed UBC Forestry Chapter of die International Forestry Students Association we intend to design and offer a comprehensive program for undergrads which will help open die door to die international world for Canadian students. MEMORANDUMS OF UNDERSTANDING (MOUs) There has been considerable activity in connec- tion widi our MOUs over the past year. Faculty members have volunteered to serve as Liaison Officers (LO) for our existing MOUs. Their role is to promote activity under the agreements by collaborating with counterparts at die partner institutions in die development of workplans.

(Hons.), Ph.D., R.P. Bio. Director CHAN-McLEOD, Ann C. Allaye B.S.F., M.Sc., Ph.D. Acting Associate Director Centre Associates BURTON, Philip CARLSON, John GLENN, Susan HARESTAD, Alton HINCH, Scott KLENNER, Walter KRANNITZ, Pamela LERTZMAN, Ken MARTIN, Kathy McLELLAN, Bruce NAMKOONG, Gene NELSON, John PITT, Michael ROWE, Stan SALWASSER, Hal SCUDDER, Geoffrey SHACKLETON, David SMITH, James VAN KOOTEN, Casey THE Centre for Applied Conservation Biology in the Faculty of Forestry promotes conservation of biological diversity while maintaining economic development. This Centre is unique in its incorporation of a novel undergraduate program, broad definition of educational targets, close links between basic and applied disciplines, and focus on forested ecosystems where conflicts between biological diversity and economic activities are most contentious. Education The educational program has three elements: an affiliated undergraduate program, a rapidly growing graduate program, and short courses for target audiences such as professional foresters, resource managers, the public and the public media. Our teaching staff continues to grow. We are closely linked to die new under- graduate B.Sc. (Natural Resource Conserva- tion) program recently initiated by the Faculty of Forestry. That program includes a core of natural science courses in forest, plant, and animal ecology, conservation biology and land- scape ecology, and a suite of social science and management courses in economics, political science and philosophy to translate natural process into human values. The "Seminar in Biological Conservation " series supported by die H.R. MacMillan Family Fund combines graduate level instruction and public lectures on important conservation issues. In 1994, noted speakers from Canada, USA, Australia, and Sweden presented 18 public lectures and spent 24 days on campus interacting with students, faculty, and the general public. Extension The Centre's first major outreach program was a series of biodiversity workshops presented with the Forest Service in the soudiern interior of die province. The Centre, with support of Canadian Wildlife Service, recendy produced its second outreach pamphlet examining the importance of down wood to biodiversity. The first pamphlet addressed approaches to main- taining biological diversity in B.C.'s forests. We sponsor conferences for scientists, resource managers and policy-makers to debate issues in conservation biology. The book derived from die first conference, "Incorporating Biological Diversity in Forest Policy and Management Decisions," will be published by UBC Press. Fred L. Bunnell Director Research Interdisciplinary, cooperative research is the key to answering die broad questions of conser- vation biology. The Centre brings togedier scholars from die university, the province and even internationally to collaborate in research. We are testing conservation biology dieories in die context of forested ecosystems, and aim to apply diis knowledge to managed forests, parks and natural areas. Among die larger projects currently underway are: • A cooperative initiative in die boreal forest diat evaluates effects of patch size and forest edges, and addresses appropriate harvest regimes across space and time (Dr. A.C.A. Chan-McLeod). • A decision-support tool evaluating econo- mic and biological consequences of forest planning at the landscape level, including a system for enhancing community partici- pation in land and resource planning (Drs. F.L. Bunnell and J.D. Nelson). • Analyses of regional patterns of species distributions, and patterns of extinctions including testing dieories on die spatial and temporal distributions of species (Dr. S.M. Glenn). • Models and experimental testing of specics movements dirough landscapes (Dr. S.M. Glenn). • A large program on the conservation and ecology of forest and grassland vertebrates in natural and altered habitats, that examines the structure and function of vertebrate populations and communities (Drs. K. Martin and F.L. Bunnell). • Research on die energetics, behaviour, physiology and life history of white-tailed ptarmigan, and a collaborative special project on die role of spruce grouse as alternative prey in relation to the snowshoe hare-lynx cycle in the boreal forest of die southern Yukon (Dr. K. Martin). Fred Bunnell can be contacted at (604) 822-5928, fax (604) 822-5410 or e-mail fl>unnell@un Lxg. ubc. ca. 48 UBC Faculty of Forestry FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM John I). Pennant Development Officer DEVELOPMENT depends on people. People give to people with causes. In diis, our first year of operation, numerous people and organizations have affirmed dieir support for die Faculty of Forestry and many volunteers have come forward to help. We have found substantia] new support for the Faculty. The demand for increased knowledge in forest conservation, management and wood processing along with the calibre of our faculty has led to a great deal of interest in supporting forestry initiatives and education. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1994-95 Giving starts at home. Bodi Faculty and alumni gave to support forestry education, beginning widi a leadership gift by Dr. Gene Namkoong who contributed $110,000 (matched by Provincial Government's $95,000 and Federal Government's $50,000) toward a Graduate Fellowship in Forest Sciences. When asked why he made one of die largest gifts ever to UBC Forestry, Dr. Namkoong replied "my grand- father in Korea supported education and I always diought when I had die opportunity I would do die same." Our 1950-59 alumni class representatives, led by Gerry Burch, received $29,000 in gifts. We also had two successful volunteer alumni telepledge evenings and raised $12,000 for student support. Forest companies continued dieir support for die Pacific Forest Science Centre as Lignum Ltd. pledged $125,000 towards naming a room in the new building. In addition an anonymous alumni, who had already given in die campaign, pledged a planned gift of $100,000 towards a room. Mr. George Richards, President & CEO of Weldwood Canada, has agreed to Vice-Chair our forthcoming corporate campaign. For die first time we received support from a U.S. Foundation — largely dirough the efforts of Dr. Bunnell — widi die Kendall Foundation pledging $50,000 U.S. Working with Dean Binkley, Dr. Barrett and Dr. Maness, we were successful in preparing a funding proposal for our new educational initiative in wood processing. The Federal Government announced its contribution of $6 million and Forest Renewal B.C. will invest $8.5 million in program endowment. In addition, die Ministry of Skills, Training and Labour will spend $7.5 million to fund die Canadian Centre for Advanced Wood Products Processing. Premier Harcourt called diis initiative: "An evolutionary step forward for die forest industry." Thanks to our supporters, die Pacific Forest Science Centre is on track, funding for die Centre for Advanced Wood Processing is now a reality and more students will benefit from die creation of new awards. Those include: • Backman Awards in Natural Resource Conservation, • Janet Ketcham Scholarship for First Nations students, • ABCPF First Nations Award, • Namkoong Family Fellowship and Teaching Exchange & Research Award, and • Pacific Regeneration Technologies Silvi- culture Scholarship. The Faculty dianks all of diose who volun- teered and contributed to make diis year a great success. PLANS FOR 1995-96 The main focus of our campaign will be: • To fund, dirough naming opportunities, equipment and furnishings for our new Pacific Forest Science Centre. • To build and upgrade facilities at our University Research Forest in Maple Ridge and develop a Sustainable Forest Manage- ment Centre of Excellence. • To increase student support in anticipation of significant Federal government transfer payment cuts for education. • To support a First Nations curricula develop- ment project and symposium. • To identify support for new Professorships. As one of our alumni said, "Quality educa- tion needs private sector funding so diat we may sustain and continue to develop a world class centre of excellence."
