Call to Order
The President called the third regular meeting of the Senate for the 2012/2013 Academic Year to
Under the Rule 20 (d) of the Rules & Procedures of Senate, the Chair accepted the request of the
Provost to add the consideration of the "BC Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at

Tributes Committee
The Chair of the Tributes Committee, Dr Sally Thome, presented.
Sally Thorne }        That Senate approve the Memorial Minute for Dr
Richard Anstee Katherine T Brearley, that it be entered into the
Minutes of Senate, and that a copy be sent to the
family of the deceased.
Vol. 2011/12 11/12-1
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 2
Minutes of 14 November 2012
Dr. Katherine T. Brearley
Dr. Katherine T. Brearley was bom in Calgary and moved to White Rock as a
young girl. After high school, Dr. Brearley completed her BA at UBC in English,
French and History in 1935, her professional year in Education in 1936, and her
MA in English in 1939. She taught at Semiahmoo Secondary School in Surrey
from 1937 to 1947, before going on to earn her PhD at the Universite de Paris. Dr.
Brearley returned to UBC in 1950, where she was in charge of the Women's
Residence from 1950 to 1954, and Assistant Dean of Women from 1959 to 1962.
In 1969, Dr. Brearley was promoted to Associate Professor in the Department of
French, and Senior Faculty Advisor in the Faculty of Arts. She served in these
roles until her retirement from UBC, upon which she became Associate Professor
emerita. The Kay Brearley Service Award is given annually to the student or non-
student whose service to the Women's Athletic program has been judged to be
exceptional. Dr. Brearley was both a member and Chair of the Women's Athletic
Committee for many years. She had a genuine interest in students, and was
committed to encouraging student involvement and leadership. In addition to her
many other contributions to UBC, Dr. Brearley served on the Senate from 1975 to
1981 as a representative of Joint Faculties.
A textbook case against mandatory retirement, Dr. Brearley returned to high
school teaching at Little Flower Academy from 1981 to 1988. After retiring from
LFA, she volunteered with neighbourhood agencies and remained active with
UBC Retired Faculty. Dr. Brearley also became an accomplished painter of
watercolours, her works being shown at venues such as "Artists in our midst".
Senate Membership
The Registrar informed Senate that in response to the call for nominations issued at the October
17, 2012 meeting of the Senate, we received one (1) nomination from Dr Don Witt to the Senate
Nominating Committee. Therefore, Dr Witt is acclaimed elected to the Committee until 31
August 2014 and thereafter until replaced.
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
Joseph Belanger }        That the Minutes of the Meeting of 17 October
William McNulty 2012 be adopted as corrected.
Correction: MOOC broken out to read "massive
open online course " under President's remarks
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 3
Minutes of 14 November 2012
Business Arising from the Minutes
Senator Knight asked about the ownership of massive open online courses being offered by UBC
through Coursera.
Dr Farrar replied that to date, four faculty members are interested in developing courses
under Coursera and that those faculty members were not functioning under the collective
agreement for this activity.
Remarks from the Chair
With regard to labour relations, the President informed Senate that mediation had resulted in an
agreement being reached with Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) local 2278 and that
the Faculty Association negotiations have been suspended; UBC is moving to interest arbitration
for February 2013 with the Association as there are significant differences between the Faculty
Association and UBC for both compensation and contract language. Further, the Board has ratified
agreements with both CUPE 116 and 2950.
Professor Toope noted that the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) met
the week of October 22n and continued an initiative started last year, "Universities on the Hill",
where the leadership of AUCC met with senior government officials, ministers, and
members of Parliament. Meetings focused on core budgets for granting councils, international
education, and support for aboriginal education initiatives.
Finally, the President described his trip to India as encouraging and successful. While there, the
Prime Minister announced that UBC's Dr Nemy Banthia will be heading the Canada-India
Research Centre of Excellence, a collaboration between UBC, the University of Toronto, the
University of Alberta, and private-sector partners in Canada and India.
Candidates for Degrees and Diplomas
Robert Sparks }        That the candidates for degrees and diplomas, as
Stanley Knight recommended by the Faculties, be granted the
degree or diploma for which they were
recommended, effective November 2012, and that
a committee comprised of the Registrar, the
appropriate dean, and the Chair of the Vancouver
Senate be empowered to make any necessary
Approved by
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 4
Minutes of 14 November 2012
Admissions Committee
The Chair of the Committee, Dr Robert Sparks, presented.
See Appendix A: Policy V-52
Robert Sparks } That Senate approve the attached Policy V-52:
William McNulty Admission for Secondary School Applicants
following the BC/Yukon Curriculum
Senator Sparks reminded Senate of the history leading to the proposal. He noted that at the
September Senate meeting, Policy J-52 was rescinded and at that time the Senate Admissions
Committee suggested that while J-52 was no longer needed, improvements to our admissions
policies were still warranted. These improvements related to offering timely offers of admission to
applicants, enabling a more holistic approach to admission considerations, and harmonizing what
we do for BC/Yukon students with those from outside of British Columbia and that these were the
changes being brought to Senate at this time.
Dr Sparks drew Senate's attention to the extensive consultation on this proposal.
The Committee Chair advised that the key components of the proposal were as follows:
The use of final Grade 11 grades as substitute for interim Grade 12 grades not
available by April.
-    Re-introduce the conditionality of offers to mitigate the risks of making offers based
on earlier grade information.
Addressing significant variances between English course and Provincial Examination
grades by allowing the use of only examination marks when there is variance of 20%
or greater.
With regard to Policy J-52, Dr Sparks explained to Senate that the Okanagan campus was still
considering what approach it would take and that he hoped the Okanagan Senate would quickly
come to its own policy decision in this area.
Senator Baimbridge asked if institutions that made earlier offers did so conditionally.
With permission of Senate, Mr Andrew Arida, Director of Undergraduate Admissions,
answered that yes, most institutions made conditional offers and those that did generally
specified conditions.
Senator Anstee noted while he still had some residual concerns around fairness in making a
change for this year, he was in support overall of the proposal as it would assist UBC in
attracting the best and brightest students. He noted that grade 11 grades were slightly less
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 5
Minutes of 14 November 2012
predictive than grade 12 grades, but the error rate was rather small and that he trusted that the
Senate Admissions Committee would review this as needed. Dr Anstee suggested that if we
moved to earlier offers we would not be able to use 2n term grades and 1st term grades were not
verifiable; he suggested that this would need to be looked at should we move towards early
offers. Finally, Dr Anstee spoke in favour of conditionality in general as it supported the idea of
students still studying in Grade 12 and noted that he was pleased that faculties were empowered
to set needed thresholds for those conditions.
It was confirmed for Senator Belanger that the English Provincial Examination language was
new to the proposed policy and did not represent a current practice.
Professor Toope noted that in his six years as President of the University, the number one
complaint he has heard from the community has been the slowness of our admission decisions. He
expressed his appreciation for this policy improving that situation.
Student Awards Committee
See Appendix B: Awards Summary
Dr Brian Stelck, chair of the Student Awards Committee, presented.
Brian Stelck } That Senate accept the awards as listed and forward
Lance Rucker them to the Board of Governors for approval; and that
letters of thanks be sent to the donors.
The Chair noted that this represented around $18000 in new funding. The Development office
worked hard to ensure new funding for students. This is the most difficult period of time for our
development office. Donors are talking about liquidity issues despite having good finances.
Professor Toope commented that while UBC was seeing is continued extraordinary support for
the University, donors who give smaller gifts may be feeling less able to give. Further, many donors of
larger gifts are less interested in endowments.
Report from the Faculty of Medicine
On behalf of Dean Stuart, Associate Dean Peter Leung presented.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 6
Minutes of 14 November 2012
Peter Leung } That Senate accept the Dr. Chew Wei MBBS [HK]
David Farrar FRCOG [ENGJ Memorial Prize in Cancer Research
and forward the prize to the Board of Governors for
Senator Leung explained the rationale for the prize and its terms.
By general consent, the citizenship criterion was amended to read "Must be a Canadian citizen. "
Senator Baimbridge noted that the proposal was silent on if the prize would be awaxa^gyiljie
case of death of a recipient between a decision and awarding. amended
By general consent this issue was referred to legal counsel for further consideration
Report from the Provost
The Provost introduced Mr Pierre Ouillet, Vice-President Finance, Resources and Operations,
who presented.
NB: The University financial statements for 2011/2012 are available from the Secretary.
Mr Ouillet gave an overview of UBC's financial statements and then spoke of our outlook for
next year. He noted that as in past years, tuition increases are limited to inflation, the Provincial
grant is flat, and inflation remains a pressure on our budget. For the next two years, cuts in the
Provincial grant are expected: 1% for next year and 1.5% the year after. The Vice-President
described this as problematic as the University's other main source of revenue - tuition- was
capped and collective agreement negotiations had and would like continue to involve wage
The Vice-President described the softening real estate market as presenting a problem for UBC;
although we could defer further construction, funds raised were used to provide the liquidity needed
for Student housing expansion in light of the Provincial debt cap.
Mr Ouillet went over the planning assumptions used for the operating budget and then the budget
projections through 2017/2018 for central and the faculties and potential mitigation strategies for
revenue shortfalls. He suggested that revenue diversification was preferable to any cuts,
including summer use of campus, the "bridge" program, and flexible learning.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 7
Minutes of 14 November 2012
With regard flexible learning, Mr Ouillet suggested that UBC needed a thoughtful strategy that
reflected our strengths and what kind of university we want to be. Most students want degrees,
others want credits, and some just want to enhance their lives. UBC needs to understand these
needs by segment and provide corresponding opportunities.
Senator Hall noted that the faculty breakdown would require a significant amount of funding
from International students but some faculties do not have access to that revenue stream as they
have limited capacity for new students.
The Provost replied that the financial situation varied by faculty. Sauder, for example,
may not want to grow internationally. Pharmacy now has government funding to expand
its class. Overall, we are comfortable with where the faculties will be but strategies will be different
for each.
Vice-President Ouillet added that for those faculties that cannot go
internationally, a growth in professional masters degrees or continuing education
may be an option.
Senator Edgcumbe asked how international student tuition was allocated.
Dr Farrar replied that at the undergraduate and graduate professional degree level, 2/3rds
went to their faculty but revenue would be shared if students took classes outside of their
faculty. For doctoral students, there was no distinction made between domestic or
International students.
In response to a question from Senate Knight, the Provost advised that in the short term, the
bridge program was the most promising opportunity for revenue diversification. If UBC decided
not to move in that direction, cuts would need to be made.
Senator Anstee asked how the Start an Evolution campaign affected the budget.
Mr Ouillet replied that the bulk of our donations were for capital projects and supporting
activities that are time limited, not for longer-term endowments.
The Provost suggested that in addition to attracting and supporting more international students,
UBC will need to better understand the online learning universe. Dr Farrar opined that there was
a major disruptive event coming to online education akin to how digital media affected the
record industry.
Mr Ouillet added that he did not think online learning would directly reduce our costs but
suggested that excelling in this field may give us the opportunity grow new revenue
sources. The focus of UBC will be to see that our students have the best experience
possible and then how can we use and capitalize on the knowledge gained externally.
Senator Baimbridge asked if the University was still considering having more students finish
120-credit degrees in 36 months through the addition of summer or online courses.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 8
Minutes of 14 November 2012
The Provost replied that this idea was still being considered.
The President added that these discussions needed to happen at the faculty and
departmental level. There is a great deal of uncertainty amongst the deans around this
idea, including the requisite culture shift for UBC and how it would impact curriculum
and research programs.
In response to a question from Senator Riseman, the Provost advised that if the Bridge program
continued as planned, we would admit our first 300 students in September 2014. On top of that is
just a general increase in ISI students. We are now at 13% and this is in the budget as well. We
would need to either build a new residence - Orchard Commons - to accommodate these
students without displacing current students from residence.
Senator Vessey noted that the presentation referenced "stronger management leadership" and
asked what this meant.
The President responded that if we ask heads and directors to think about budgets and
revenue sources, we are expecting them to have significant management skillsets.
We will need training programs and to expand academic leadership programs to
enable people to participate as actively as possible.
The President concluded the discussion by stated that whenever one discusses budgets at the
public sector it is chastening; however, UBC is still operating from a position of strength that is
enviable to most.
Other Business
David Farrar } That Senate approve the establishment of the BC
Lance Rucker Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk in
the Faculty of Arts, made possible, in part, by funding
from the Province of British Columbia's Leading Edge
Endowment Fund.
The Provost explained that the Faculty of Arts had been working on this proposal for some time.
We were recently informed that this needed to be approved by the end of the third week of
Tributes Committee (in camera)
Minutes for this portion of the meeting are not public for reasons of personal privacy.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:40 pm.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 - 9
Minutes of 14 November 2012
Appendix A: Policy V-52
Please see the Secretary for the formal version of Policy V-52. The following is an excerpt of the
key text:
1. Academic criteria, generally as indicated by a calculated admission average and the
completion of pre-requisite courses, are the primary basis for determining admissibility to
direct-entry undergraduate programs; however, with the approval of Senate, Faculties
and programs may elect to use Broad Based Admission or other criteria to select from
applicants whose admission average meets or exceeds Faculty or program thresholds for
admission which may vary from year to year.
2. An admission average or interim admission average will be calculated where all Grade
12 courses required for admission have been completed or are in-progress and all
required verifiable or official final or interim course grades are available to the
3. Admissions averages or interim admission averages shall be based on at least four (4)
Grade 12 courses for the Grade 11 course equivalents under this policy) as specified for
the program.
4. Where available, final or interim course grades for Grade 12 courses shall be used in
calculating an admission average or an interim admission average; however,
notwithstanding 2. above, should one or more of the required Grade 12 courses not have
a final or interim course grade at the time of academic assessment, the final course grade
for one or more appropriate Grade 11 courses will be substituted into the calculation of
the interim admission average as follows:
a. for specified Grade 12 courses (English 12/ English 12 First Peoples for all
programs, or prerequisite Mathematics or Science courses for some programs), a
final course grade for a Grade 11 course in the same subject-area shall be
substituted; and,
b. for other Grade 12 courses, a final course grade for a Grade 11 course may be
substituted so long as the course meets the criteria for inclusion as a secondary
school course in an admission average but is at the Grade 11 level, and is not in a
subject area that is already being used in the calculation of the admissions
5. Grade 11 courses that may be substituted for Grade 12 courses shall be set out in the
procedures to this policy by the Responsible Committee.
6. Offers of admission based on interim admission averages that include one or more final
course grades for Grade 11 courses and/or interim course grades for Grade 12 courses
are conditional subject to the satisfactory completion of all required courses and the
meeting of any requirements referenced in the letter of admission. Failure to meet any of
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 -10
Minutes of 14 November 2012
the requirements referenced in the letter of admission may result in the withdrawal of the
offer of admission.
7. Conditions required to retain an offer of admission will be determined by individual
Faculties on a year-to-year basis, and Faculty thresholds may be higher than the
published University minima.
8. Offers of admission for applicants who fail to meet the referenced conditions will be
reviewed by the admitting Faculty on a case-by-case basis.
9. When English 12/English 12 First Peoples is in progress at the point of evaluation, an
interim course grade shall be used in the calculation of the interim admission average.
10. When English 12/English 12 First Peoples has been completed at point of evaluation, the
admission average or interim admission average is calculated on whichever is the higher
of the English 12/English 12 First Peoples final grade (weighted 60% course grade and
40% examination grade) or course grade alone.
11. In cases where a significant discrepancy exists between the English 12/English 12 First
Peoples course grade and the examination grade, the University reserves the right to use
the examination grade only. A significant discrepancy is determined by a difference of no
less than 20% between the English 12/English 12 First Peoples course grade and the
examination grade.
12. The Responsible Committees shall set out the timing for admission decisions for
admission to direct-entry undergraduate programs as a procedure to this policy.
