SUSPENSION OF GRADUATE STUDENT ADMISSIONS TO POLITICAL SCIENCE
The following letter and attached agreement between the Department of Political Science
from the Dean of Graduate Studies was distributed at the meeting:
After consultation with the Dean's Equity Advisory Committee and the Acting Head
of the Department of Political Science, the attached agreement has now been reached
with the Department. In view of this agreement and progress made within the
Department during the last weeks, I am pleased to inform Senate that the suspension
of graduate admissions to the Department of Political Science is being lifted
immediately.
This has been a difficult time for all concerned. I am pleased that it has been possible
to reach this agreement and look forward to working with the faculty and students of
the Department in the days ahead.
The Department agrees:
1) (a) to ensure that the Department's current process for effecting and
implementing improvements in the climate for graduate study and in the
administration of the graduate programs will operate in good faith, efficiently
and effectively to ensure that there are satisfactory provisions in place for
educational equity and a learning environment of mutual trust and respect.
(b) to strengthen mechanisms whereby input is sought on a regular basis from
graduate students in evaluating its graduate programs and in making further
improvements.
(c) to meet all the necessary elements of the final approved version of the
matrix being developed by the Dean's Equity Advisory Committee for all
graduate programs, and, where possible, to implement the desirable elements
also.
(d) to consider carefully other recommendations which will be made by the
Dean's Equity Advisory Committee, and to respond in writing to these in the
reports covered in #2 below.
(e) to announce publicly its commitment to a goal of educational equity.
(f) to commit itself to deal promptly with any allegations of harassment and
discrimination in full accordance with University policy.
2) The Department will issue written reports in February, May and October,
1996, detailing what steps have been taken, any problems encountered, and
plans for further actions. These reports will be made
 Vancouver Senate 11212
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Business arising from the Minutes
available to the Deans of Arts and Graduate Studies and all graduate students
in the Department, as well as to the Associate Vice-President Equity. If at least
two of the Dean of Arts, Dean of Graduate Studies and Associate Vice-
President Equity deem it to be necessary, a further report could be required in
1997.
It is understood that the Dean of Graduate Studies could reimpose a suspension on
graduate admissions if the Department fails to comply with the provisions of this
agreement within a reasonable period of time.
Before commenting on the lifting of the suspension of Graduate admissions to the
Political Science Department Dean Grace explained that the suspension had been imposed
for several reasons, most of which had been detailed at the previous meeting. First, the
suspension was imposed in order to encourage the department to undertake
improvements in the graduate program, improvements which would provide an
appropriate learning environment for graduate students in which there would be
educational equity, respect and freedom from harassment and discrimination. The second
reason was to protect new students so that they would not come into an environment
where there was any chance that they would be in an inadequate environment.
Dean Grace stated that three elements were required in order for the suspension to be
lifted. First, an appropriate process; second, substantial progress; and third, sustainability.
The process was extremely difficult to achieve, and over a period of two months there
were various attempts to find a process where there would be representation by students
and faculty sitting on the same committees. However, a process was eventually developed.
Until late last week, there had been virtually no
 Vancouver Senate 11213
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Business arising from the Minutes
progress, but then the Department passed an "action plan" which details a number of
things that the department has done. In particular the department took proposals that had
been prepared by students during the summer period, and the working groups which had
been established looked at these proposals and adopted those that could be adopted
relatively easy and quickly. These proposals were subsequently approved by the
department.
Commenting on the lifting of the suspension, Dean Grace informed Senate that the Dean's
Equity Advisory Committee met on Wednesday morning and discussed the various items
at some length. The committee was of the opinion that there had been significant progress
in that the proposals met some of the problems that had been identified by students and
that they responded to some of the concerns of the committee with respect to the matrix
that it had been developing. Of the 29 items on the matrix, six had been responded to
satisfactorily and nine had been responded to in part by the reforms adopted by the
department. The committee was encouraged also by the fact that the department had
shown a real commitment to meet other items on the matrix so two of the three elements
had been achieved.
Referring to the third element, sustainability, Dean Grace stated that after considerable
discussion, the committee advised him that if he could achieve an agreement with the
department to make sure that there was a continuation of the process and adequate
monitoring and reporting, not only to the committee but to the students, the Dean of
Arts, and the Associate Vice-President Equity, there would then be a process where there
was an adequate safeguard for sustainability, recognizing, of
 Vancouver Senate 11214
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Business arising from the Minutes
course, that there could be a reimposition of a suspension at some future date if necessary.
Dean Grace stated that the agreement before Senate was the result of discussions with Dr.
Elkins. He added that he was very pleased that Dr. Elkins was able to assure him that he
had talked to enough of his colleagues that he was able to accept the agreement on the
behalf of the Department of Political Science. On that basis, Dean Grace said he was very
pleased to announce the lifting of the suspension on graduate admissions to Political
Science.
Dean Grace recognized that the last four months had been extremely difficult ones for all
concerned. He stated that there had been profound divisions within the graduate student
body in the department and he appealed to them to try to work with the process, to give
it a chance and to try and put aside their differences. He said that the Dean's Equity
Advisory Committee would have some suggestions as to how that might be facilitated. He
also noted that the faculty in Political Science recognized the need to resolve problems and
that they had shown a willingness to accept a settlement which is not perfect for anyone
but which is at least an honourable settlement.
Dean Grace said he realized that graduate students in other departments were deeply
concerned over the issues raised in this matter. He said that the Faculty of Graduate
Studies was committed to assuring that there is academic freedom not only for faculty but
also for students and other members of the university community. He realized that this
matter had created and atmosphere of division and polarization between faculty
 Vancouver Senate 11215
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Business arising from the Minutes
members, and it was this atmosphere, among other things, which prompted him to reach
for the kind of solution that had been achieved today.
In conclusion, Dean Grace said that he had appreciated greatly the strong and positive
support of Graduate Council and the equity committee. He stated that there was a need
for healing on all sides and appealed for the healing to proceed and also for civility. He
hoped that the university would emerge much stronger as a result of this experience. He
said that many people across the country had been watching the university, and that the
eyes would continue to be turned on UBC in the days ahead. He therefore appealed to
everybody to make this agreement work and to get on with the process.
With the agreement of Senate, President Strangway invited Dr. Elkins, Acting Head of the
Department of Political Science, to comment. Dr. Elkins stated that this was an important
event in the history of UBC as well as the department, and that it was therefore important
to put a few points on record.
Dr. Elkins thanked senators for the interest expressed and the concern that they had
shown at the previous meeting. He agreed with Dean Grace that this had been a very
difficult period for faculty and students in the department and for many across campus.
He was therefore very pleased and proud that an agreement had been reached.
Dr. Elkins stated that perhaps the most important lesson for everyone was that people
who have wide differences of opinion, and quite different views of the situation in the
department, had come to an agreement, an honourable compromise, to respect
 Vancouver Senate 11216
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Business arising from the Minutes
opinions and to operate in an environment of mutual trust and respect. He said that this
was what the academic enterprise was about and that was one of the things built into the
agreement that Dean Grace and he had concluded that day. He hoped that as a result
attention would be turned away from the controversy and that work could begin to help
the department, faculty, students and staff to rebuild an intellectual community that was
once an envy of people across the country, and would be again.
Dr. Elkins confirmed that he had consulted some faculty members and although he had
not had an opportunity to call a department meeting, he believed that he could speak on
behalf of the department in accepting the agreement. He stated that every effort would be
made to see the matter concluded and to see that every condition is met. Dr. Elkins said
that several of the conditions in the agreement were already in place or were in process.
He said that some of the matters, which had grown out of student suggestions during the
summer and early fall, were not in the action plan but were still being dealt with by the
working groups and would take some time to conclude. He explained that the delay was
not because there need be any fundamental disagreement between faculty and students
about the desirability of doing things, such as a code of professional conduct, for
example, but rather because they were matters that required very careful reflection and
very thorough deliberation.
Dr. Elkins said that when those matters have been considered and implemented, he hoped
that the department would be in a position to offer advice, help and encouragement to
other units in the university who may wish to consider some of the methods the
department has explored to create a learning and teaching environment of mutual trust
and respect.
 Vancouver Senate 11217
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Business arising from the Minutes
Dr. Durbach, Associate Dean of Arts, was invited to speak in the absence of Dean
Marchak. Dr. Durbach thanked Senate for the opportunity to represent Dean Marchak.
He stated that it was the Dean's wish that this debate could be resolved before it actually
came to a vote in Senate. He said that it had seemed very unlikely at 9.30 a.m., at a
meeting of the Deans, that this would happen. It was amazing, however, what could
happen with the exercise of goodwill and with some magnanimity on both sides. Dr.
Durbach said that the outcome of this rather acrimonious affair at UBC had now been
resolved to the satisfaction of the Faculty of Arts. Dr. Durbach offered congratulations on
behalf of Dean Marchak and added his personal congratulations to all those involved in
the resolution of the matter.
President Strangway expressed his personal congratulations to Dean Grace, Dr. Elkins,
the Faculty of Arts, and others who had worked so incredibly hard through difficult times
to reach an agreement that has all the elements in it that were necessary to resolve the
issue.
In light of the developments, Dr. Coope withdrew her motion to rescind the suspension of
graduate admissions to Political Science, and congratulated all those involved in reaching
an agreement.
Dr. Grace noted that there was nothing in the agreement that specifically says that Senate
would be kept informed, and that she therefore wished to retain the latter part of the
motion which had been circulated concerning the suspension of graduate admissions to
Political Science.

AD HOC COMMITTEE ON UNIVERSITY ORGANIZATION (P. 11169)
Dr. Birch presented a list of reports that he proposes to submit to Senate within the
current academic year. The material circulated also contained information on initiatives
taken by the various Faculties in response to the recommendation of the Senate ad hoc
Committee on University Organization that Deans be asked to consider the consolidation
of units of fewer than fifteen faculty members for potential merger with other units.
POLICY ON DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT (P.11204)
A report from the Equity Office on its activities with respect to the Policy on
Discrimination and Harassment had been circulated for information.
Mr. Gray had given notice of the following motion at the previous meeting:
"That the Policy on Discrimination and Harassment be referred to a committee of the
Senate for full review."
Mr. Gray reminded Senate that when the Policy on Discrimination and Harassment was
put before Senate in January, a motion to refer it to a Senate committee to talk about the
larger issue was defeated. Mr. Gray said that while he was pleased and relieved that an
agreement had been reached with the Political Science Department, he
 Vancouver Senate 11219
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Business arising from the Minutes
thought that the opportunity to discuss some of these larger issues had been lost. He
suggested that it would be appropriate for a committee of Senate, unencumbered by the
passions that had been running through the university over the past month, to discuss the
implications of the university's policies and how they affect the academic life of the
community.
Dr. Kelsey noted that Associate Vice-President Kahn, in her report to Senate, referred to
reviews of the policy and to things that might need to be incorporated. He asked if there
was already an existing process for review, and, if so, how would it be incorporated into
Mr. Gray's motion
Dr. Birch explained that when the existing policy was adopted by the Board there was an
agreement that there would be a preliminary review six months after its implementation,
which was reflected in the report circulated. It was further agreed that there would be
consideration of potential revision of policy and procedures twelve months after its
application. He stated that the primary consultative committee for that process would be
the President's Advisory Committee on Equity, Harassment and Discrimination which
deals in an ongoing way with these matters.
Dr. Birch thought that the committee would welcome the input of an appropriate Senate
committee but suggested that it would be premature to refer it until the completion of the
twelve month review. Dr. Birch also suggested that the matter be referred to the Senate
Committee on Academic Policy rather than to an ad hoc committee.
 Vancouver Senate 11220
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Chair's remarks and related questions
Dr. Autor spoke in support of the motion and its referral to the Senate Academic Policy
Committee. She said that the policy clearly has academic implications, and that Senate, as
the body that is responsible for academic policy in this institution, should be part of this
process.
Dr. Gray l        That the Policy on Discrimination and
Dr. Shearer i       Harassment be referred to the Senate
Committee on Academic Policy.
In response to a query by Mr. Khan, President Strangway stated that seemed to be some
perception that the recent events had something to do with policy whereas in fact the
policy came into force much later.
The motion was
put and carried.
Chair's remarks and related questions
President Strangway said that the issue just dealt with had been tumultuous and that there
would be long term reflections. President Strangway referred to a major conference being
organized by UBC on the questions of academic freedom and freedom from
discrimination and harassment stating that these were these issues that needed to be
debated in a very open manner. He hoped members of Senate would have a chance to
participate in the conference which is scheduled to take place some time next year.

ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE
Pan-Canadian Protocol on the Transferability of University Credits
It was stated in the material circulated that the Senate Admissions Committee had
 Vancouver Senate 11221
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
reviewed carefully the provisions of the Pan-Canadian Protocol on the Transferability of
University Credits, as well as a letter to President Strangway from the Honourable Dan
Miller asking for UBC's co-operation in the implementation of the protocol. The
committee's advice is that the President should inform the Minister and AUCC that UBC's
policy and practice with respect to the transfer of credit from other post-secondary
institutions in Canada conform to both the goals and specifics of the protocol. UBC
grants full credit for the first two years of university study, subject to the following
provisions of the protocol:
1. the transfer student is deemed admissible and has been presented with an offer
of admission;
2. the transfer student has achieved a passing grade in his/her course(s) and has
obtained grade levels that would normally be required from continuing
students; and
3. the credits earned are related to the program of study in which the transfer
student will register, or, the credits can be counted as electives for the program
of study.
Dr. Will, chair of the committee, explained that the initiative for this protocol came from
Universities in Ontario where transferability between universities is less well defined than
in B.C., and transfer between colleges universities in most academic programs is virtually
non-existent. Dr. Will stated that the protocol more or less reflects what UBC has been
doing for a decade and UBC would therefore have no problem associating with the
program.
BUDGET COMMITTEE
Dr. Isaacson, chair of the committee, spoke briefly to the following report which had been
circulated for information:
 Vancouver Senate 11222
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Preamble
An important component of the Senate Budget Committee's work relates to a
consideration of the President's annual budget strategy. This activity takes place each
year shortly after its report to Senate in May. Because of this timing, the committee
has agreed that it would report on this particular matter to Senate early each Fall.
The President's 1995/96 Budget
A description of the President's 1995196 Budget will be provided in the 1995196
Budget and Planning Narrative, which will be available in early November, 1995. The
overall budget reflects the following separate funds: General Purpose Operating Fund;
Sponsored Research; Special Purpose; Ancillary; and Capital. This separation of funds
is consistent with the designated purposes of the various categories of income. The
General Purpose Operating Fund (GPOF) is now further subdivided into Core GPOF,
Non-Core GPOF, and Continuing Studies. The principal income items of the Core
GPOF are the provincial grant and tuition; and the principal expense items are salaries
and benefits.
The provincial operating grant for 1994/95 provided no increase for salaries, except
for pay equity. In order to achieve a balanced budget, salary increases have been
funded through reallocations which correspond to recurring reductions in the 1995196
budget of about $4.7 million. These entail substantial reductions in operations across
the University.
Final Committee Motion of the President's 1995/96 Budget
Presentations to the Committee were made by the President and Vice-Presidents
during a series of three meetings in June and July, 1995. Each presentation related to
the relevant section of the draft 1995196 Budget and Planning Narrative that had been
distributed earlier to committee members. During the presentations, the committee
discussed various aspects of the draft material and provided related comments and
suggestions.
On July 4, 1995, after the completion of these presentations and the discussion, the
committee unanimously passed the following motion which is to be published in the
1995196 Budget and Planning Narrative:
The Senate Budget Committee endorses the President's 1995196 budget strategy with
the following observations:
1.  The committee cautions against too optimistic a view of the University's
financial situation, and it should be recognized that the 1995196 budget will
have a serious impact on many parts of the University. The accommodation of
the Faculty salary agreement has been managed as well as possible under the
circumstances.
 Vancouver Senate 11223
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
2. In the light of long-term fiscal uncertainties, the committee is pleased that the
President is initiating the development of alternative fiscal projections for the
University. The development of such mid- and long-term scenarios, taking
account of salary considerations, should precede next year's budget process.
3. The committee welcomes the progress made on distinguishing between various
categories of income, and encourages the President to develop more fully the
budgets and guidelines for funds outside the Core General Purpose Operating
Fund.
4. The committee notes that the increased and planned expenditures relating to
the Outstanding Student Initiative represent significant commitments. It would
appreciate receiving reports on the Initiative during each of the next three years
so that it may examine the effectiveness of the corresponding expenditures.
CONTINUING STUDIES
Review of Continuing Education at UBC April 1994-March 31, 1995
Dr. Vanderstoep, chair of the committee, spoke briefly to the report which had been
submitted to Senate for information by Dr. Walter Uegama, Associate Vice President,
Continuing Studies. Dr. Vanderstoep stated the report contained an excellent overview of
continuing education activities in various parts of the university and of the services
available to both Canadian and international communities. He hoped that the report
would encourage members of the university community to explore further ideas with the
Associate Vice President of Continuing Studies as to what might be done in their units. He
felt sure that after reading the report members of Senate would have a greater
appreciation of the kinds of activities that are carried out under the banner of continuing
studies.

COMMITTEE ON STUDENT AWARDS (SEE APPENDIX)
In presenting the report, Dr. Cook, on behalf of the committee, expressed thanks and
appreciation to Mr. Gellatly, Vice President of Administration and Finance, and to the
President's Office, for the inclusion of all endowed scholarships, awards, bursaries and
fellowships in this year's budget report .
Dr. Cook noted that there was a change to the award terms for the B.C. Recreation and
Parks Association Prize, and that there were 28 new awards. Dr. Cook drew attention to
three of those awards. First, the William and Dorothy Gilbert Scholarship in Bio-Medical
Sciences in the amount of $2,000, sponsored by a junior faculty member and his wife,
who is a graduate student. Second, the Marilyn Hunnings Memorial Scholarship in
Education in the amount of $9,400. Marilyn Hunnings was a UBC Arts graduate, did her
teacher education in the Faculty of Education at UBC, and taught secondary mathematics
in Victoria and Vancouver at a time when there were very few female senior secondary
mathematics teachers. Marilyn Hunnings also was an athlete of note in British Columbia
in Badminton, and she contributed nationally and internationally with the Canadian
Volleyball Association as a senior Board member. Third, the M. Dorothy Mawdsley
Bursary in the amount of $19,800. Dr. Cook stated that many UBC alumni, including
herself, fondly remember Dorothy Mawdsley who was referred to by many women in the
province, right to her death, as "the Dean".
President Strangway drew attention to the Namkoong Family Fellowship in Forest
Sciences in the amount of $10,000, stating that Dr. Namkoong, a faculty member at
UBC, and winner of the prestigious Wallenberg prize awarded by the King of Sweden,
had donated the prize to UBC.

REPORT ON GRADUATE STUDENT EXPERIENCE AT UBC: AN ASSESSMENT
Dean Grace informed Senate that the report, which had been circulated for information,
was the result of a survey conducted in the Spring of 1994 by Dr. Neil Guppy of the
Department of Anthropology and Sociology. He said that a number of issues had
emerged, some of them relating to matters that had been discussed recently. Campus
security came out very strongly as a real concern, particulary with women but also with
many men, and counselling was also identified as an area of concern to graduate students.
He stated that there were relatively few differences by discipline, which in itself was
interesting, except in the area of resources. Dean Grace stated that there were really
profound differences in the area of resources, with the humanities and performing creative
arts low on the list, social sciences next, biological sciences and medicine and then applied
sciences receiving the most with respect to both financial support and non financial
support such as access to fax machines, xeroxing, desk and office space. He stated that in
some cases there were quite marked gender differences with women almost always being
on the disadvantaged side which was certainly a cause for considerable concern, and there
were some differences that come out with respect to visible minorities and persons with
disabilities.
 Vancouver Senate 11226
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Dean Grace said that the data should be of concern to everyone and hoped that
departments would debate the important issues identified in the report.
Ms. Dzerowicz referred to the issue of campus safety and asked what action was being
taken.
Dean Grace responded that copies of the report had been sent to the Parking and Security
Department on campus, and asked the Registrar to elaborate. Dr. Spencer stated, in his
capacity as Director of Student Services, that the issue of campus safety and the concerns
of students, particularly women students, are taken very seriously. He said that a number
of different bodies were concerned about this matter, one being the Campus Advisory
Board on Student Development, sponsored by Dr. Maria Klawe, Vice President of Student
and Academic Affairs, others being the Women Students' Office and the Alma Mater
Society. The University has appointed Ms. Meg Gaily as Personal Security Coordinator in
the Health, Safety and Environment Department.
In response to the question about what action was being taken, Dr. Spencer stated that a
significant improvement had been made to the lighting on campus over the past twelve
months. He noted also that the Alma Mater Society has a "safewalk" program for
escorting students who are concerned about their safety after dark, and that Parking and
Security Services runs a campus security bus service which will pick people up at various
points and transport them in the evening and can provide safe escort and transportation
at other times. Dr. Spencer said that although the problem was relatively easy to see, it
was difficult to define and very difficult to solve. He also noted that while safety and
concerns about safety are issues that must be taken very seriously, statistics show that the
UBC campus is a relatively safe place.
 Vancouver Senate 11227
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Faculty of Graduate Studies
As President of the Academic Women's Association, Dr. Grace assured Ms. Dzerowicz
that this issue would be raised at a joint meeting with the President's Office in the spring,
as it had been over the past several years. She stated that this is an issue that members of
the AWA take very seriously indeed and that it applies as much pressure and presents as
many suggestions for solutions as it possibly can. Dr. Grace said that the AWA is one of
the groups pushing hard for reform in this area and that it will keep pressing for safety on
campus for all students, staff and faculty.
Vice President Birch stated that as the issue had been raised in Senate, it was important
that a report be brought to Senate on the initiatives that have been taken and will be
taken. He said that there had been an ongoing dialogue between a whole variety of
groups on campus for the past four or five years and that a very large number of
initiatives had been taken, including pilot programs, testing alternative approaches to
lighting, the establishment of emergency telephones etc. However, rather than seeking to
dredge these initiatives up from recall, or speaking about the concerns as if we were
collectively pushing on some intransigent bodythat is not responding, Vice President Birch
suggested that it would be useful to bring a report to Senate for information.
Ms. Shirley Chan, Vice Chair of the Board of Governors, informed Senate that a meeting
on "Safety on Campus" was being held by the AMS between Maria Klawe and others on
October 27th at 12.30 p.m. in the Student Union Building and suggested that it might be
a useful meeting to attend in that there may be an opportunity to discuss ways in which
people would feel more comfortable on campus at night.
 Vancouver Senate 11228
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Faculty of Science
A student senator informed Senate that the AMS was currently working on a project that
would involve students walking round the campus at night to survey the different parts of
campus, to note the problems, and to make suggestions with regard to action that can be
taken.
Mr. Boritz noted that report confirmed that campus safety was an issue for men as well as
women.
Dr. Thorne pointed out that while men and women both have concerns about safety on
campus, women are consistently and persistently concerned about safety and she felt that
it was a very important working environment issue which ought to be taken very
seriously.
Mr. Lim concurred that the issue affects many women. However, he felt that there was
almost reverse discrimination in that there had been complaints that some male students,
when they complain to Parking and Security, for example, are not taken seriously. Mr.
Lim requested that it be recorded that regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation,
this is an issue that effects everyone.
Faculty of Science
DEPARTMENT OF EARTH AND OCEAN SCIENCES
Dean McBride presented a proposal that the Departments of Geological Sciences and
Oceanography, and the Geophysics section of Geophysics and Astronomy, be merged into
a new single department named the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences.
 Vancouver Senate 11229
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Faculty of Science
Dean McBride l        That the Departments of Geological Sciences
Dr. Richer i        an^ Oceanography, and the Geophysics
section of Geophysics and Astronomy, be
merged into a new single department named
the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences.
Dean McBride explained that this was the culmination of many years of discussion and
that the proposal received almost unanimous approval in the Faculty of Science. He
thought that it was an exciting opportunity to bring together these disciplines which study
the earth and the ocean in a way which would create some wonderful opportunities in
teaching and curriculum, and would facilitate research interactions that might not occur
otherwise.
The motion was
put and carried.
GEOPHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY
Dean McBride presented a proposal that, at the time of dissolution of the Geophysics and
Astronomy Department, the Astronomy group within that department merge with the
Physics Department to form the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
Dean McBride l        That, at the time of dissolution of the
Mr. Khan J        Geophysics and Astronomy Department, the
Astronomy group within that department
merge with the Physics Department to form
the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
Dean McBride stated that the merger made good academic sense and that it brings
together academically related sub-disciplines of optical astronomy, radio astronomy,
astrophysics and cosmology.
 Vancouver Senate 11230
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Establishment of a Vresidential Search Committee
Dean McBride stated that the proposal would result in bringing together very strong links
that would become even stronger in these new relationships. The merger of the
Astronomers with the Physicists does create a number of problems, the most important
being how and where they are housed. Clearly they should be housed within the Physics
Department but there simply is not any suitable space but there will be space available in
the Hennings building in the very near future. However, the space was not really suitable
for the astronomers so there is an urgent need for renovation of those facilities.
Consequently, Dean McBride asked that the following statement be read into the minutes
of Senate:
"It is understood that the completion of this merger is subject to the resolution of the
fiscal and administrative issues arising from the recommendations of the Report of the
Committee to Study the Possible Unification of Astronomy and Physics chaired by
Associate Dean David Measday."
The motion was
put and carried.
Establishment of a Presidential Search Committee
Ms. Shirley Chan, Vice Chair of the Board of Governors, informed Senate that the Board
of Governors, at its meeting of July 20, 1995, approved the following Principles of a
Presidential Search Committee and Terms of Reference, which, under section 27 (e) of the
University Act, require Senate approval.
Principles of Presidential Search Committee
For the selection of the President of the University, a Search Committee for the
Selection of Presidential Candidates shall be established in accordance with the
following principles:
 Vancouver Senate 11231
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Establishment of a Vresidential Search Committee
MRCC Terms of Reference
The University of British Columbia's Board of Governors under the University Act,
has the power to appoint the President. The Board has empowered the Management
Resources Compensation Committee (MRCC) with the responsibility "to recommend
criteria for selection of the President; recommend terms of reference and
organizational structure of the Presidential Selection Committee; and to oversee
Presidential Selection Committee through the process."
Search Committee Composition
Noting that the average size of a Search Committee is from 10-20 members (Western
10; Winnipeg 15; Alberta 16; Calgary 14; Saskatchewan 12; Manitoba 19; Queens
20), it is recommended the Search Committee will be 19 (including the Chair).
The Committee shall be composed of a Chair, appointed by the Board of Governors:
a) Three external members of the Board of Governors (includes at least one
member of MRCC)*
b) Two members of the Senate, to be elected by Senate;
c) Three members of faculty, to be elected by the Joint Faculties;
d) Two deans, to be chosen by the Committee of Deans;
e) Three students, two undergraduate to be chosen by Students' Council; and one
graduate student to be chosen by the Graduate Students' Association;
f) Two members of the Alumni Association to be appointed by the Board of
Management of the Alumni Association;
g) President of the Faculty Association*
h) Two members of the non-academic Administration and Support staff, one
appointed by the Union and one by M & P Group.
*If a member of the Search Committee ceases to be a member of the estate from which he or
she was appointed, the MRCC shall determine whether he or she should continue on the
Committee. If there is a vacancy on the Search Committee, it shall be filled by the MRCC
Committee.

Institutional Profile
The Search Committee will review the Institutional Profile submitted by the
Consultant (to MRCC) to establish profile of new President.
Orientation
MRCC recommends a thorough orientation session for all members of Search
Committee to establish expectation and responsibilities of the individual on the
Committee and the Committee as a whole.
The Search
The Search Committee will have overall responsibility for the search and recruitment
of candidates. The Management Resources and Compensation Committee (MRCC)
concluded that the Search Committee would benefit from the assistance of a Search
Consultant, the approach now used at virtually all universities. The MRCC will
request proposals from Search Consultants and short list to three for consideration by
Search Committee.
The Criteria
The Search Committee should be responsible for determining the criteria to be used in
evaluating candidates. The MRCC recommends the Search Committee facilitate
meetings with stakeholders and an open forum to assist in developing criteria to
evaluate candidates. The Search Committee should present its criteria for the
consideration and approval of the Board.
Procedures
The Search Committee should develop its own procedures on the understanding that
proceedings and transactions shall be conducted in confidence. It will be important for
the Board to be regularly informed on the progress which the Search Committee is
making. The Chair of the Committee should, therefore, make a report to the Board at
each Board meeting on the understanding that such reports will be made in general
terms only, given the sensitivity and confidentiality of the Committee's work.
Recommendations
The Search Committee should be asked to identify, during its deliberations, no more
than three candidates in order of preference and if, for some reason, the Board does
not approve the Search Committee's recommendation, then the Committee would be
asked to submit its next choice.
 Vancouver Senate 11233
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Establishment of a Vresidential Search Committee
Terms
In consultation with Search Consultant, the MRCC will establish contract parameters
and compensation of potential candidates. The Search Committee should not have the
responsibility of discussing contract provisions with candidates. The Chair of the
Search Committee would review these parameters with all individuals on the short list
prior to interviews. If it seemed clear a candidate could not accept the general
parameters, then there would be no reason to interview. The final negotiations for a
contract would be the responsibility of the MRCC reporting fully to the Board.
Confidentiality of Proceedings
It is a condition of membership of the Committee that its deliberations and all matters
pertaining to its proceedings will be treated as being confidential. Acceptance of
membership constitutes an undertaking to adhere strictly to this condition.
Terms of Reference
That the following be the terms of reference of the 19 member Search Committee for
the Selection of a President:
a) To review the institutional profile presented by the Management Resources
Compensation Committee (MRCC).
b) The Secretary of the Board of Governors shall be the Secretary of the Search
Committee.
c) To co-ordinate the search and recruitment of candidates, to receive
nominations, to analyze the suitability of candidates, to interview candidates.
The Search Consultant selected by the Committee, will assist the Committee
with the above.
d) To develop, following consultation with the University community, the criteria
to be used by the Committee to evaluate candidates, and to report the criteria
to the Board for approval.
e) To set up its own procedures on the understanding that the search will be a
confidential search.
f) To report, in general terms, to each Board Meeting (during selection process)
on the progress of the Committee.
g) To develop a "short list" of no more than three candidates in order of
preference and to submit the Committee's first preference to the Board for
review and approval.
h) To submit its recommendation to the Board no later than November 1, 1996.
 Vancouver Senate 11234
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Establishment of a Vresidential Search Committee
Ms. Chan outlined some of the changes to the principles approved by Senate in December
1981, namely that the Chair would be chosen by the Board of Governors and that the size
of the committee had been reduced from 24 to 19. Also, an additional member of the
non-academic Administration and Support staff had been included so that there would be
both a union and an M & P representative on the committee. Ms. Chan explained that
under the new terms of reference the search committee will report to the Management
Resources Compensation Committee (MRCC) of the Board of Governors.
Ms. Lica Chui suggested that more students be involved in the process and requested that
the number of student members on the search committee be increased. Ms. Chui drew
attention to the elimination from the membership of a member of the executive of the
Alma Mater Society and suggested that this category should be reinstated.
Ms. Chan responded that there was opportunity for students to be elected by Senate, and
noted that two undergraduate students are to be chosen by the Students' Council and one
graduate student to be chosen by the Graduate Students' Association.
Dr. Will stated that he was in favour of reducing the size of the committee for operational
reasons.
Dr. Shearer l        That Senate approve the recommendation of
Mr. Banfield J        the Board of Governors that a Presidential
Search Committee be established in accordance
with the principles and terms of reference
approved by the Board of Governors at its
meeting of July 20, 1995.
Dr. Gilbert drew attention to the statement that the MRCC will request proposals from
Search Consultants and short list to three for consideration by the Search Committee. He
 Vancouver Senate 11235
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Establishment of a Vresidential Search Committee
said that it appeared that most of the search was to be done by the consultants in
conjunction with the MRCC and asked if the parameters or the search were to be set by
the committee, or the MRCC, or the Search Consultants.
Ms. Chan responded that the Search Committee will be responsible for determining the
criteria to be used in evaluating candidates. She explained that the MRCC and the Board
was really concerned about not having the Search Consultants take on too much
responsibility or take the lead and felt that it was important that that would remain with
the Search Committee so there is certainly no intent to reduce the authority or the
responsibility of the Search Committee. That is why we stated that the committee will be
assisted by the Search Consultants. The MRCC will be short-listing the consultant group
and then it will be up to the search committee to select the consultant but it doesn't
change who is responsible for setting the criteria and who has responsibility for
conducting the search and the approval.
In response to a query by Dr. Autor, Ms. Chan explained that the composition of the
Management Resources Compensation Committee includes the Chair of the Board of
Governors, Vice Chair of the Board Shirley Chan, Internal Vice Chair of the Board Dr.
William R. Cullen, Mr. Michael T. Partridge, Alumni representative on the Board, and
Mr. Thomas R. Berger.
Mrs. Margaret Price, Professional Librarian representative on Senate, pointed out that
Professional Librarians were not represented on the Search Committee, and were not
eligible to be selected under any of the categories listed.
Ms. Chan responded that the Board had chosen a similar composition to that used for the
previous Presidential Search Committee.
 Vancouver Senate 11236
Minutes of 18 October, 1995	
Establishment of a Vresidential Search Committee
Dean Hollenberg noted that the search for a President was to be conducted in confidence
and that consequently there would not be an opportunity to meet with the candidates. He
questioned this procedure since this was not the practice in searches for Vice Presidents.
Dr. Will stated that this had been the procedure in previous searches for Presidents
because many candidates did not wish to have their candidacy known. While he
appreciated that there was some merit in being able to obtain information about how
applicants operate in their current positions, there was also the possibility that good
candidates would withdraw if the proceedings were not conducted in confidence.
Dean Meisen stated that it was very difficult to maintain confidentiality and urged the
committee to reconsider the issue of confidentiality early in the process so that prospective
candidates can be advised if a change is made in this respect.
Vice President Birch spoke in favour of the proceedings being conducted in confidence,
stating that often very good candidates withdraw their candidacy when the proceedings
are open.
In amendment:
Ms. Chui i        That the number of student representatives on
Dr. Richer J        the Search Committee be increased to four.
Following a brief discussion, the
amendment was put and lost.
