Business Arising from the Minutes
In response to the query raised at a previous meeting, Senator Jaeger advised on behalf of Deans
Olson and Kelleher that currently 21 research faculty and 1 instructor were appointed in whole or
in part to the School of Biomedical Engineering, resulting in a full-time equivalency of 6.43
positions. There are ongoing and proposed hires, with a total of 17 appointments for 13 full-time
equivalent positions planned for the next year.
Senator Ahmed said that this issue arose due to the concern about department size, as Senate set
aside its usual requirement of 15.
Professor Jaeger advised that they would be at 20 when the expansion was completed.
Remarks from the Chair
Professor Santa Ono welcomed Senate to the first meeting of the 2018-19 academic year, noting
that he was looking forward to the upcoming academic year as we began the implementation of
UBC's new strategic plan. He noted that over the summer we developed a robust implementation
structure and process that will continue to draw on the passion, ideas and expertise that were so
evident during the development of the plan, and to ensure we continue to be informed by our
community, we have established a Strategic Plan Implementation Advisory Committee, broadly
representative of our UBC community, to provide advice on processes and priorities for
implementation. Both the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses will host forums, to help generate
ideas and enable campus leaders to seek advice and counsel related to the core areas of the plan:
2017-09-2

People and Places, Research Excellence, Transformative Learning and Local & Global
Engagement.
Dr Ono went on to state that while consultation is critical to our approach to the strategic plan,
UBC will also be moving forward with concrete actions:
We have held calls for proposals that align with the Strategic plan, including special
Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund projects and Research Clusters. More
opportunities will be announced shortly.
We have worked with Faculties and Administrative Units on both campuses to identify
initial projects in support of the plan, and will be making additional opportunities
available during the 2019/2020 campus budgeting processes. Further details will be
shared in the near future. We would like to thank all those who have come forward so far
with ideas.
To ensure our community is well informed about the implementation of the plan, we are
enhancing the strategic plan website. Updates will be made later this month, to include
more information about the implementation process and opportunities for engagement.
Dr Ono noted that he had recently met with university leaders from the Asia-pacific region,
including those from Japan, California, and Washington State, and had recently travelled to
Japan to further build relationships with two of that country's major universities
Finally, Dr Ono stated that he would like to tell the stories UBC better. To that end, we are
launching and Blue and Gold podcast - available on iTunes, Spotify and other outlets and also at

THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
w
Assistant University Librarian Emeritus William J. Watson was born in Walkerville, Ontario in
1928, and was raised in Ottawa. He studied journalism at Carleton College, and later completed
degrees in Islamic Studies and Librarianship at McGill University.
After completing his studies at McGill, Mr. Watson served as librarian at McGill's Institute for
Islamic Studies, and as an Assistant Professor of Library Science. He remained at McGill for 10
years before joining the UBC Library as an assistant librarian in the mid-1960s. In 1969, he left
UBC to become the second University Librarian at the University of Waterloo, a post he held for
three years before returning to the West Coast and re-joining the UBC Library in 1972.
Mr. Watson remained at UBC until his retirement, twice serving as acting University Librarian
where he served on Senate from September 1989- June 1990. In addition to his duties at McGill,
Waterloo, and UBC, Mr. Watson served as a member of the council of the Bibliographical
Society of Canada, and as chair of a national committee on automation in Canadian university
libraries foreseeing the current era of automation as early as 1969.
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer their
condolences and thanks.

Dr Burr said that this was a current practices that was debated at length, and the
Committee still felt that they equivalent for credit but not for awards consideration.
Seantor Leuprecht asked if any faculties were considering lowering their credit
requirements for dean's list notations from 27 to 24 to correspond with the new award
requirement.
With the permission of Senate, Associate Registrar Darran Fernandez spoke, advising
that he wasn't aware of any faculties planning to change.
Dr Kindler expressed a concern with summer courses not being considered for awards given that
we considered them equivalent for other purposes.
Senator Lo said that with summer courses did not have a consistent denominator that
could be used for comparison purposes between students.
Senator Singh said that we should consider summer and winter courses at par.
The Registrar clarified that it was the credit load that was the issue over the summer not
course quality.
Senator Krebs asked if we could have the equity office consult on changes. .
With permission of Senate, Mr Kyle McCleery said that the summer issue was considered
as a part of the consultation process. Firstly, there were system concerns around fair
adjudication of awards. Secondly, the Committee asked all of the faculties if they wanted
to see Summer courses considered: the response was no.
Senator Leuprecht asked if the committee could report back in November on the concerns raised.
Senator Holmes objected to the Alma Mater Society being listed as having been consulted on the
policy as although it was emailed to them, they did not reply.
By general consent a motion to postpone the consideration of this proposal was
approved.

feedback on the proposal.

Senator Leuprecht asked about the enrolment numbers proposed.
Dr Rennacker advised that we expected 24-40 students and steady state, with 30% of
those being international, largely from Forestry's partner institutions in China. The
Faculty has existing faculty members with sufficient capacity to cover that teaching. The
expected student demand was measured using the survey mentioned earlier.

1787 - Claude Gardner Memorial Scholarship
Rationale for Proposed Changes
As requested by the Faculty of Dentistry and approved by University Counsel, the year of study
is being removed from the award description as the timing of the curriculum has changed.
Removing the reference to the year of study and focussing the criteria solely on the required skill
will ensure that the award description will not need to be revised in future if course curriculum
changes.
Current Award Description
An $800 scholarship has been endowed by alumni and friends of the Faculty of Dentistry in
memory of Dr. Claude Gardner and his tremendous contribution, over many years, to the
students and graduates of the Faculty and to the development of the dental profession in British

The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies has been added to the sentence regarding
award administration to clarify that the award assignment would be handled by their office.

1042 - Maureen Howe AWF Lifetime Achievement Award
Rationale for Proposed Changes
The sentence was added in to provide linkage between Maureen Howe and the Association for
Women in Finance (AWF) as there wasn't really any indication of that before. It makes sense to
add it in because AWF is the one who is actually funding this award in Maureen's honour over
the next 10 years, the idea of creating the award came just after she received that award from
AWF and AWF is the one that initiated the creation of this award.
Current Award Description
A $3,750 award is offered annually in honour of Maureen Howe to a female undergraduate
student entering third year of the Bachelor of Commerce program at the UBC Sauder School of
Business who has achieved outstanding academic merit. Preference is given to a student who is
specializing in finance, has a history of community service, plans to pursue a career in finance
and has demonstrated an ability to overcome adversity. Maureen has held various positions as a

2766 - David Roberts Prize in Legal Writing
Rationale for Proposed Changes
The award was established to recognize students' achievements in legal writing. When this award
was established, Public Law (Law 251) had a legal writing component that students could be
evaluated by/from. Over the years, the legal writing component moved from Public Law to other
first year courses. As this happened, the law awards committee found it difficult to adjudicate to
an appropriate student. The law awards committee suggested not listing a specific course as it is
limiting, rather broadening the award language so that a larger pool of students becomes
available. This new language also allows for the committee to look outside of first year courses
when necessary.
Current Award Description
Prizes totalling $2,000 are offered by The Advocate, a legal journal published by the Vancouver
Bar Association. The awards are made on the recommendation of the Faculty for outstanding
achievements in Law 251 (Public Law).
Proposed Award Description
Prizes totaling $2,000 are offered annually by The Advocate, a legal journal published by the
Vancouver Bar Association, to J.D. students who demonstrate outstanding achievement in legal
writing. Preference will be given to first year students. The awards prizes are made on the
recommendation of the Peter A. Allard School of Law Faculty for outstanding achievements in
