Chairman's  remarks
Dr. Strangway informed Senate that he had met with the the new Premier
and had taken the opportunity to convey to him some of the concerns and
issues faced by universities. He stated that he had also had meetings with
some of the deputy ministers of the various ministries and would be
continuing to meet with others during the  next   few weeks.
Dr. Strangway drew Senate's attention to the document "UBC Engine of
Recovery" which had been circulated to members of Senate and stated it had
received excellent  media  coverage.
In response to concerns expressed about the view of the University
portrayed in this document. Dr. Strangway stated that the intention had been
to convey to the public not only the short term issues facing the University
but also the needs of the University on a long term basis. He felt that it
was important to convey that the freedom and autonomy enjoyed by the
University for many years was essential for the purpose of benefits to the
province.
Concern was also expressed regarding the category "Dispelling the
Myths", and in particular the myth that UBC has a large number of foreign
students. It was suggested that this could be interpreted in two ways. Dr.
Strangway stated that the reason for reporting this item had been to draw
attention to the low percentage of foreign students at UBC and that he
intended to  initiate discussion on what an  appropriate level might be.
