Chairman's remarks and related questions
Dr. Strangway informed Senate that the University, together with Simon
Fraser University and the University of Victoria, had submitted grant
proposals to the provincial government; the deadline for submission of the
proposals was August 15. He also stated that proposals with respect to new
or add-on programs within the funds for excellence program had been
submitted in time for the September 15 deadline.
Dr. Strangway also informed Senate that the provincial government had
reguested that the University submit a list of capital priorities for the
next five years. He stated that members of the Senate Academic Building
Needs Committee were to meet jointly with members of the Presidential
Advisory Committee on Space in order to prepare and submit proposals in time
for the deadline date of September 21.
Dr. Strangway referred to the fund-raising campaign and stated that the
market survey with respect to that activity would start within the next few
days. it was hoped that over the next two or three months there would be a
very clear assessment as to what the potential is with regard to the overall
campaign. 9043.
September 16, 1987
Chairman's remarks and related questions  (continued)
Dr. Strangway drew Senate's attention to the employment equity issues
raised by the federal government and stated that the University subscribed
to the principles of employment equity, recognizing that they are
fundamentally important. He stated that the the University was advised that
if it wished to have its first $200,000 contract renewed it must subscribe
to the principles of employment equity. Dr. Strangway said that he felt
that the principles were important to the University and that a Presidential
Task Force on issues of employment equity was being established to develop
university policies.
Dr. Strangway reported that the Presidents of the three universities had
created a Tri-university President's Council. Dr. Strangway had informed
Senate at the May meeting that the three universities were planning the
appointment of a person to act in such matters as arranging meetings of
Presidents, Vice-Presidents or other groups and to help develop a system for
the presentation of information to the government in the hope that this
appointment would make the coordination among the three universities more
substantive than in the past. He announced that a secretary had
subsequently been appointed.
In conclusion, Dr. Strangway stated that in addition to preparations
already underway for a President's Report on Creative and Performing Arts,
steps had also been taken to initiate the preparation of an Asian Pacific

Financial Statements
Copies of the Financial Statements for the year ended March 31, 1987 had
been submitted to Senate as required under section 31 (2) of the University
Act.
Mr. Gellatly, Vice-President, Administration and Finance, was invited to
comment on the various aspects of the Financial Statements. Mr. Gellatly
then highlighted some sections of the report for the information of Senate.
In response to a query Mr. Gellatly confirmed that surplus funds from
Ancillary Enterprises could not be transferred to any other part of the
University's operation. He explained that ancillary enterprises are
break-even operations and that it would not be legitimate to have say a 9045.
September 16, 1987
Financial Statements  (continued)
Bookstore price which was designed to create a profit and then to move that
money over into the General Purpose Operating Fund. In so far as the
Bookstore might have a deficit it would have to recover that money over
future operations, and if Student Housing has a surplus that money would
stay there and benefit future operations. He further explained that two
groups had recently been moved into Ancillaries, one being Athletics, the
other U.B.C. Press, and that subsidy or operating grant money had been put
into that fund. So, although money could be put into Ancillaries, surplus
moneys are not available to bring back into the General Purpose Operating
Fund.
In response to a further query, Mr. Gellatly stated that the projected
deficit of $1.9 million ended up as a deficit of roughly half a million due
partly to increased revenue and partly to a decrease in expenditures. Some
of the Faculties had helped by cutting back on cash spending as much as
possible. Also, reduced energy costs resulted in a saving of about
$250,000. and the benefit program cost about $600,000. less than expected,
partly due to a rate change for our category of 'risk' which resulted in a
significant rebate from the Workers' Compensation Board of about $400,000.
Mr. Gellatly responded to queries concerning library acquisitions and
the decline in academic salaries. He stated that available operating
dollars for library acquisitions had increased from 2.0% five years ago to
2.4%. As far the salary category was concerned, he stated that the
expenditures were down because of the reduced numbers of faculty members.
Approximately 200 positions were eliminated, settlements being handled with
the assistance of special grants from the government. 9046.
September 16, 1987
Financial Statements  (continued)
In response to a question concerning the item 'designated' under
government grants on page 11 of the report, Mr. Gellatly stated that for the
current year, 1987/88, almost all of the designated grants were put into
ongoing base grant from the prior year so that the base now instead of being
$163,000,000 is $184,000,000 in the current year budget, and that is locked
in.
Attention was drawn to the item 'sources of funds' in tables 2 and 4 on
pages 4 and 5 of the report and the fact that the percentages accruing to
the University from individual businesses and foundations had dropped, in
the case of specific purpose funds from 23.7 to 14.1%, and in the case of
sponsored research funds coming from individual businesses and foundations
from 24.9 to 20.5%. In responding to a question as to whether this also
represented a reduction in actual dollars, Mr. Gellatly referred to page 31,
schedule 4, and stated that the Centre for Excellence funds of $3,480,000
were new and were being treated as trusts. He stated that until they are
set up and established they would not appear in the ongoing operating budget
base. Therefore as a year to year comparison, they distorted the relevant
statistics. He noted that income under business and industry was $1,157,000
compared to $553,000 last year, but that the actual dollars relating to
associations and foundations were down a little. As far as the drop from
$22.6 million to $19.7 million under bequests, donations and non-government
grants were concerned, Mr. Gellatly felt that this was related primarily to
the fact that the government large grant for this one year had been treated
as trusts.
Responding to a question on inter-fund transfers and the transferring of
funds into endowments, Mr. Gellatly commented generally and noted that the
endowment funds showed considerable gains last year. 9047.
September 16, 1987
Financial Statements  (continued)
In response to a question on staff tuition fee waivers on page 28,
schedule 2, Mr. Gellatly stated that this did not refer to tuition fee
waivers for offspring of faculty. He stated that members of staff are given
the opportunity to take 6 units of courses each year, and that these
opportunities are supported through union contract agreements. Since this
is a benefit, it is charged as a benefit cost and not to the department
where the individuals work.
Mr. Gellatly confirmed that Extra Sessional Studies had made a profit
this year.
In response to a query as to why general operating expenses had gone up
less than 2% and administrative costs had increased by nearly 30%, Mr.
Gellatly stated that there had been four new developments during the year
which were showing significant increases for the first time. The first one
being Community Relations, the cost of which increased from $467,000. to
$844,000. which was part of a planned program to change the role of that
unit; the second was the Development Office which is new and therefore
shows a cost going from 0 to $424,000. The Development Office is starting
work on the fund-raising campaign referred to earlier by the President. The
other fairly major increase is the information systems management fund which
went from $900,000 to a million and a half. Another item included for the
first time this year was for Occupational Health and Safety, previously
funded through the university development fund.
Referring to an increase of nearly $350,000 in the operating budget of
Financial Services, Mr. Gellatly explained that an amount of $200,000., for
one year only, was made available to enable Financial Services to run their
old system as well as install a new on-line computer system. 9048.
September 16, 1987
Financial Statements  (continued)
In response to a query concerning the increase in insurance premiums,
Mr. Gellatly stated that insurance premiums went up from $396,000. to $1.1
million in one year. He stated that the liability insurance premium
increased from $116,000. to $529,000. and the premium for fire went from
$369,000. to $671,000. However, action has since been taken on that
particular issue by increasing the deductibles by $250,000 and $100,000 for
fire and liability respectively, thus reducing those premiums from about
$1.1 million down to $700,000.
The President informed Senate that Mr. Gellatly was looking into other
schemes to reduce insurance costs, one being a Canada wide activity
concerning forms of self-insurance which would involve all universities. It
was also understood that the provincial government was looking into this
matter.
Mr. Gellatly confirmed that the University had moved into a more unified
way of accounting and that it would be meaningful to compare the financial
statements of U.B.C with the financial statements of other universities.
The Chairman expressed thanks and appreciation to Mr. Gellatly for his
presentation of the report.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Nominating Committee
Dr. Tennant, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, presented the
Committee's recommendations for membership on the various committees of
Senate and reported that the Committee had tried to accommodate the
preferences indicated by members in their responses to the request that
members state the committees on which they would like to serve. 9049.
September 16, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Nominating Committee  (continued)
It was noted in the report that all committees have as ex-officio
members the Chancellor, the President and the Registrar. It was also
noted that recommendations for student membership on Senate Committees are
made annually and that the current assignments were approved at the May
20, 1987 meeting of Senate.
Dr. Tennant reported that, as agreed at the March 18, 1987 meeting of
Senate, the membership of the Tributes Committee had been increased by
five;  three faculty, two convocation senators and one student.
Dr. Tennant explained that the Committee on Elections was established in
October 1978 to deal with appeals on election irregularities. In the past
this committee had been listed as an ad hoc committee. The Nominating
Committee felt that it should be a standing committee of Senate and the
membership is now listed under standing committees.
Dr. Tennant informed Senate that the Nominating Committee recommended
that the ad hoc Committee on Standards in English be discharged. He
explained that the committee had been established in March 1975 with the
following terms of reference:
(a) To develop a U.B.C. view for presentation in Province-wide
discussions on improvement in composition teaching at all levels;
(b) to review the operation of the basic composition program, encourage
liaison among Faculties concerning enrolment in the program; and,
(c) to report to Senate with regard to progress in the U.B.C. program and
in the Province-wide discussions of the problem of minimal standards
in reading and writing. 9050.
September 16, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Nominating Committee  (continued)
The committee submitted its final report to Senate in April 1979. This
report was referred to the Senate Admissions Committee for consideration
and the Admissions Committee reported back to Senate in May 1979.
In March 1981, the Admissions Committee submitted a report on basic
competence in English Composition in which it was stated that the
Admissions committee would monitor the impact of the new admissions
requirements on the quality and success of students over the whole first
year program, in order to see if they had any effect on the success rate
of students in English 100.
The Nominating Committee felt that the ad hoc Committee on Standards in
English had completed its task and that the Senate Admissions Committee is
the appropriate body to deal with matters of concern in this area.
In conclusion, Dr. Tennant reminded Senate that Item 2.3 of the Senate
Procedures, adopted at the April 23, 1986 meeting, states that "Senate
shall elect a Vice Chairman at least annually, who shall chair meetings in
the absence of the President; but in no case shall a Vice Chairman serve
more than two consecutive terms."
The Committee nominated Dean W.  A.  Webber  for  the position of
Vice-chairman.
Dr. Tennant   )  That the recommendations of the
Dr. Goldberg  )  Nominating Committee be approved.
In response to a query concerning the membership of senior faculty
advisors on the Admissions Committee, Dr. Tennant stated that the
Admissions Committee could co-opt additional members if it so wished. 9051.
September 16, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Nominating Committee  (continued)
In response to a further query as to whether the Nominating Committee
had taken the view that Associate Deans should or should not be on the
Budget Committee, Dr. Tennant said that the Committee had no opinion on
that.
The motion was put and carried.
Committee on Student Awards
Dr. Cook      )  That the new awards (listed in the Appendix)

facilities for the operation of the Chair, by introducing appropriate
courses, and by facilitating relevant research and publications.  It is
expected that the University would continue to enhance its relevant

Dr. Morrison drew Senate's attention to the very careful and detailed
work that the former head of the Department of Asian Studies, Dr. Ashok
Aklujkar, had done in encouraging the Sikh community of Vancouver to take
the initiative in collecting money. He also paid tribute to work done by
other Hindi teachers who have very close relationships with the Indian
community in Vancouver.
The motion was put and carried.
Centre for Continuing Education
Report on Diploma and Certificate Programs
The following report on diploma and certificate programs administered by
the Centre for Continuing Education had been circulated for information:
'Diploma programs in Administration for Engineerings and Administration
for Foresters
A. The Diploma Program in Administration for Engineers is offered
jointly by the Faculty of Applied Science and the Centre for
Continuing Education.
1. There were eight new admissions into the program this year.
2. Total enrolment in the program since its inception in 1968 now
stands at 1,144 with a total of 92 graduates to date. 9053.
September 16, 1987
Centre for Continuing Education
Report on Diploma and Certificate Programs
"Diploma programs in Administration for Engineerings and Administration
for Foresters  (continued)
A. 3. There were 539 registrants for the 25 courses offered on-campus
and in the Greater Vancouver area.
B. A total of 41 professional foresters were admitted to the parallel
Diploma Program in Administration for Foresters, offered by the
Faculty of Forestry and managed by Engineering Programs, with the
first two graduating in Spring 1982.
C. Although not a "Diploma" program per se, our graduate-level
"CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL" program for Professional Engineers and
Registered Architects has now qualified a total of 69 individuals to
certify building plans in the City of Vancouver as meeting the
requirements of the National Building Code of Canada. It is likely
that this program will be modified to go province-wide using KNOW
facilities.
Certificate in Site Planning
The fourth year of the Certificate in Site Planning program had eight
students registered in first year courses. Second year courses were
cancelled for 1986-1987 due to insufficient registration.
No students completed the requirements for the Certificate during
1986-87.
In the 1987-88 Academic Year, it is expected that there will be eight
students in the second year and seven students entering the first year."
Proposal re in-person Registration Week
It was stated in the material circulated that historically, registration
week has followed Labour Day. In 1988, early registration via "Telereg"
will allow students to register from June through August. As the four day
week following Labour Day will no longer be required for in-person
registration, this period can be used for teaching or other purposes. In
order to determine the best use of this week, the Acting Registrar
recommended that Senate appoint an Ad hoc Committee to recommend the
appropriate use of the in-person registration week. 9054.
September 16, 1987
Proposal re in-person Registration Week  (continued)
Dr. Weiler    )  That Senate appoint an Ad hoc Committee
Rev. Burns    )  to recommend the appropriate use of the
in-person registration week.
Carried
Report from St. Mark's College
The annual report to Senate from St. Mark's College had been circulated
for information. In commenting on the report Rev. Paul Burns drew attention
to the paragraph on the library and stated that St. Mark's College greatly
appreciated the co-operation of the people in the University Library
system. He stated that the College was aware of the severe financial
restrictions on the University Library system at this time but hoped that,
in the not too distant future, if the financial resources of the University
Library were to increase, it would be possible to have the acquisitions of
St. Mark's College library incorporated fully within the University
catalogue system. He stated that this had not been possible since 1978 and
that the College would like its full resources known and available to all
members of campus who wish to use them.
The second item referred to by Rev. Burns was on University involvement,
which he stated was an area of activity which the College took very
seriously. He said that there had been hopeful developments in the
College's relationships with different departments and faculties involved in
liberal arts at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and that the
faculty of St. Mark's college would like to explore ways to strengthen and
expand these activities in the future. 9055.

15, the total enrolment figure, including extra sessional studies, was
24,096. He stated that this number was down by about 400 to 500 over
September 16 last year. However, there were a greater number of evening
extra sessional applications that had not been processed at this time
compared to the same time last year, and there were still the off-campus
offerings to add although those do not form part of the statistics until
the end of September.
The meeting adjourned at 9.30 p.m.
