Chair's remarks and related questions
BUDGET ALLOCATION
The President announced that the University had now received the grant information for
1997/98 from the provincial government. He stated that in addition to the freezing of
tuition fees, the University faces a reduction of approximately 0.5% in this year's grant.
Although proposed increases in tuition fees for international students
 Vancouver Senate 11638
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Chair's remarks and related questions
were approved, the President stated that the budget for the coming year is still very tight.
He said that a number of commitments have to be honoured, that costs continue to rise,
and that there are salary settlements to be dealt with, which meant that reallocations will
have to made with respect to the budget. President Strangway noted that the University,
once again, is expected to increase enrolment to the levels mandated by the government.
The President asked Vice President Birch to comment on this matter.
Vice President Birch reported that the Ministry had expressed concern that in each of the
past three years, UBC has consistently fallen short of what the Ministry has regarded as
the funded level in terms of undergraduate enrolment. He reminded Senate that last year
the University was 4% below what was regarded as the funded level, and that on top of
the funded level the University was told that there was a mandated enrolment increase of
4% with no increase in the grant. That meant that the University was expected to increase
enrolment by 8% over the previous year. He said that, through heroic efforts, the
Faculties increased enrolment by about 6%, so that during the year just completed UBC
was slightly more than 2% short of the funded target.
Vice President Birch explained that the Ministry, in delivering a grant this year that is
reduced slightly, expects UBC to achieve "efficiencies" that will enable the University to
produce a mandated enrolment increase of a further 1%. This means that to meet the
Ministry's funded level of enrolment, UBC must increase its undergraduate enrolment by
3.2%, which amounts to between 700 and 800 full time equivalent students. He stated
that many of the classrooms built in the sixties were built for moderately sized classes. As
a result, the University is very short of classrooms to
 Vancouver Senate 11639
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Chair's remarks and related questions
accommodate large lecture sections. If you divide these sections, it increases the number of
hours faculty teach and the number of sessional lecturers that have to be appointed. He
noted that Deans had repeatedly expressed concern about the impact on the quality of
undergraduate programs given the mandated enrolment increase.
Vice President Birch stated that the Ministry is attempting to address the increasing
demand for university places by mandating enrolment increases within existing resources,
instead of with additional grants. He explained that the problem is compounded further
by the fact that the Ministry has introduced a complicated formula to penalize institutions
for "under-producing", which means that UBC will have a further loss in its grant of
$250,000 in the coming year, which is beyond the reduction the Ministry is already
making. He said that, in addition, the Ministry has asked for a more detailed plan on how
UBC is going to deal with enrolment in the coming year, and are withholding a further $2
million of the grant pending review of a realistic enrolment plan. This is to be restored to
the base when a plan has been mutually agreed upon. Vice President Birch said that a
detailed enrolment plan is ultimately potentially much more troublesome than just a
global figure for undergraduate enrolment. He explained that the demands of the
Ministry had resulted in delays in Faculties getting their specific enrolment targets to the
Senate Admissions Committee and Senate, but expected that enrolment figures for
1997/98 would be presented at the May meeting of Senate for ratification.
Dr. Harrison, chair of the Senate Admissions Committee, expressed concern about the
process and the timeliness of it. He stated that the admissions staff in the Registrar's office
are already considering applications for admission and were having to make decisions
without knowing what the quotas are. He also expressed concern at the
 Vancouver Senate 11640
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Chair's remarks and related questions
number of changes being brought to Senate and the effect that the increase has on the
quality of the programs offered. He said that the committee wondered when the
University was going to say enough is enough, we are taking too many students.
Mr. Brady, l        That the Senate advise the Government of
Dr. Yaworsky: i        British Columbia that the University is unable
to increase the present student enrolment until
such time as increased funding is available and
the necessary infrastructure is in place.
In speaking to the motion, Mr. Brady said that Senate should be concerned about the
quality of education being offered and that it should be made clear to the government that
the University cannot accept any more students until increased funding is made available.
Dean McBride spoke in support of the sentiments of the motion in relation to the way in
which universities are funded, but was concerned about whether this was the most
productive way to proceed politically. He stated that he believed that it was time Senate
made it known to the government that their claim that they are not cutting resources to
universities is patently false, and that they are in fact compromising the education of
students at this university through their policies of forced enrolment increases without an
increase in funding that recognizes real costs..
Dean McBride noted that in the budget letter it stated that the universities should meet
the additional costs of increased enrolment by increases in productivity and efficiency. He
informed Senate that, in the Faculty of Science undergraduate enrolment has increased
33% over the last ten years, while numbers of faculty and staff have decreased and
dollars, in constant dollar terms, have decreased. He suggested that this
 Vancouver Senate 11641
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Chair's remarks and related questions
was an efficiency increase somewhere around 50%. He noted an increase in quality
reflected in entry requirements. Ten years ago a student needed a 65% average to get into
the Faculty of Science, but now an 83% average was required, and that this would
probably increase to an 85% average this year. Increased quality was also reflected in the
drop in failure rates from 18% in 1986 to 2.7% last year. He stated that these were
productivity and efficiency increases. In 1995/96, 44% more students graduated than in
1986, and this will increase to 50% more students this year. Dean McBride said that he
did not know of any areas in government or industry that could show those kinds of
efficiency improvements, and with reduced resources.
Dean McBride went on to comment on the impact of enrolment increases on the quality
of undergraduate education. He was very concerned about the issue of large class sizes, as
well as, in the case of the Faculty of Science, decreasing numbers of laboratories, the
quality of equipment that is getting old, outdated and cannot be replaced, laboratory
exercises that cannot be improved because of lack of resources, and a greater and greater
reliance on sessional and part-time people to do the teaching. This was occurring at a time
when the University has recognized the need to improve undergraduate education and is
improving the quality of education by looking at what the student requires when he or
she goes out into the world. To meet those objectives would require faculty working with
smaller groups of students. Instead, there will be larger classes which will necessitate using
multiple choice examinations when we are trying to use mechanisms that develop
problem solving skills. Dean McBride asked how it would be possible to improve
communication skills when third and fourth year classes have two, three and four
hundred students in them.
 Vancouver Senate 11642
Minutes of april 16,1997	
From the Board of Governors
Dean McBride also drew Senate's attention to the area of research and scholarly activity,
stating that for every negative effect on undergraduate and graduate education there is a
corresponding negative effect on UBC's ability to be competitive in the research field. He
said that the University has a responsibility to the country and the province to conduct
high level research, but it cannot meet this mandate and be competitive if it is forced to
deal with more and more students with fewer and fewer resources. There is less time for
research and fewer resources to support research. He said the result will be that research
activities will decline, and that outstanding new people cannot be recruited into that kind
of environment. He stated that this was a very serious time for the University, and that
Senate had to go on record as opposing forced enrolment increases and must make people
aware of the implications for research and teaching.
In amendment:
Mr. Gray, l        That the following be added to the motion:
Dr. Berger i        "and that Dean McBride deliver the message
on behalf of the Senate".
Carried.
The motion, as amended, was

ACADEMIC BUILDING NEEDS
Professor Quayle, chair of the committee, presented the following report, which had been
circulated:
This report summarizes progress with the 1995-1996 recommendations to Senate and outlines
new recommendations for 1997.
The major responsibilities of the Senate Academic Building Needs Committee (SABN) are to:
1) monitor the implementation of the Campus Plan;
2) annually review all building project priorities;
3) recommend priorities on new academic buildings with consideration for the needs of
academic and non-academic buildings, balance of types of teaching spaces and
relationship to physical plant and planning; and
4) review the impact of every development, whether building or landscape, on the total
teaching and academic resource.
NOTE: Members of SABN are also members of the President's Property and Planning
Advisory Committee (PPPAC).
Recommendation A: (1995)
That the President commit the University to an open planning process which will build trust
within the university community and with our neighbours. This process should embody the
principles of academic priority and ecological and environmentally responsible infrastructure.
Most importantly, the process must include the articulation of a clear vision for the campus
community as a whole.
1997 Comment on progress:
It is the opinion of the Senate Academic Building Needs Committee members that while
specific efforts to involve the university community in the planning process have been made in
this past year, there are still substantial issues with our internal consultative process as well as
with involvement of neighbouring communities in planning issues which affect them. For
example, the typical information meeting promotes a relatively low level of true participation;
an open and accountable consultative process is generally more time consuming, but also more
effective in the long-run.
Recommendation B: (1995)
That the President articulate the process by which both general building and academic
building priorities should be reviewed, considering academic, community and infrastructure
objectives, and funding opportunities. The SABN should play an active role in that process,
specific to their mandate from Senate.
1997 Comment on progress:
While it should be noted that a number of construction projects are still fulfilling priorities
approved by SABN in the late 70s and early 80s, SABN continues to be critical of our current
lack of process for the review of academic building priorities; our input in the past has been
"too little, too late" and sometimes the academic aspects of a particular project have been less
significant than other influences. However, the Integrated Faculty Master Plan study has been
progressing and a
 Vancouver Senate 11644
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Reports of Committees of Senate
draft report is expected in late April. This study has been undertaken by a consultant with a
sub-committee PPPAC, including members of SABN, co-chaired by the chair of SABN. The
report includes a summary of Faculty master plans (with the exception of Health Sciences)
organized around various rationale such as building condition, space shortfalls, operations
and utilization improvements and safety issues. The committee is looking at various impact
scenarios by which decisions can be made on academic building priorities across campus such
as available permanent space, consequential moves, interdisciplinary opportunities and
temporary facility replacement. It is hoped that this integrated plan will provide the campus
community with a resource and context within which to make overall planning decisions.
SABN can then take the opportunity to be actively involved in setting academic building
priorities.
Recommendation C: (1995)
That the President develop a strategy for:
a) the funding of essential Campus infrastructure such as power plants and other "hidden
systems" with a view towards an environmentally responsible approach to providing
energy to the Campus;
b) the funding of continued operations and maintenance of the campus building and
landscape inventory; and
c) the funding of the campus "public realm" — the framework for the experience of the
campus for pedestrians and cyclists.
1997 Comment on progress:
The UBC Infrastructure Plan responds to parts (a) and (b) of this recommendation. Strategies
for attention to the public realm remain unclear. SABN still would appreciate assistance from
Campus Planning and Development in the preparation of a "check-list" for use in reviewing
developments in terms of their academic and campus-wide planning criteria to help us fulfil
our mandate.
Recommendation: (1996)
That the President request:
a) a review of the implementation of the Campus Master Plan to date; and,
b) a strategy to provide more checks and balances within the building approval process in
the area of design and planning, such as a UBC Design Panel.
1997 Comment on progress:
Although SABN, as part of PPPAC receives a fall update on the extent to which the various
strategies in the campus master plan have been addressed during the preceding year, SABN
continues to be concerned about the quality of the campus, both its buildings and public
spaces. We think that it is critical to review how the Campus Master Plan is being
implemented. We also feel the need for more checks and balances in the design-planning
process. PPPAC (of which SABN is a part) is not a design review group. It is perhaps timely to
institute a professional design review process for the Campus which would include
participation by architects, engineers, planners and landscape architects. Such a review process
would include buildings and the public realm of the campus, as well as construction concerns
such as tree preservation guidelines and effective monitoring of construction activities.
 Vancouver Senate 11645
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Reports of Committees of Senate
In terms of new recommendations, the Senate Academic Building Needs Committee proposes
the following:
1997 Recommendation 1:
a) That the President review the governing board's policy on public consultation and
subsequently publish the revised policy in the policy handbook. This policy should outline
a comprehensive public process for the campus community, particularly for decisions
surrounding campus planning and academic building needs, with the following attributes:
(1) clarity: clearly stated objectives and articulated budget including ongoing operating
costs of new buildings;
(2) transparency: process open to public review and comment, towards building trust and
ownership in the communities of interest - both external and internal;
(3) good communication and information: awareness of process and ways to participate;
(4) flexibility: variety of ways and times to participate;
(5) validating: emotional and rational reactions valid; and
(6) accountability: results of process truly valued, and
b) In light of this new process, that the President review the current methods of making
planning and development decisions and determine an appropriate, revised process in
which the Senate Academic Building Needs Committee undertakes the role of reviewing
new and ongoing academic building priorities.
1997 Recommendation 2:
a) That the President re-affirm the university's commitment to the provision of high quality
classrooms and teaching space; and
b) That the President ensure that members of the university community are fully informed
about the classroom master plan and the implementation strategy being used to enhance
the quality of classrooms and teaching space. This should include special emphasis on
policies that involve classroom stewardship by faculties across the campus.
Professor Quayle spoke briefly to the report, highlighting various items.

ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE
Camosun Bridging Program
Dr. Harrison, chair of the committee, presented the report. The committee recommended
approval of the following Calendar entry for the Camosun Bridging Program:
Students with two year diplomas in Civil or Mining Technology will be admitted to
third year of the B.A.Sc. program in Civil Engineering or Mining and Mineral Process
Engineering upon successful completion of the Engineering Bridging program offered
by Camosun College. Applications for entry into this bridging program are considered
on an individual basis and approval for admission must be obtained from both the
UBC Faculty of Applied Science and Camosun College before registering in any of the
bridging courses. Students may be required to take additional first or second year UBC
courses to make up deficiencies. Mature applicants may be admitted into the Bridging
Program notwithstanding the fact they might not meet the normal admission
requirements if, in the judgement of the Faculty of Applied Science and Camosun
College, equivalent experience has been obtained.

LIBRARY COMMITTEE
Dr. Gilbert, chair of the committee, presented the following report which had been
circulated for information:
The Senate Library Committee met a total of seven times this year, four times in Term
1, and three times in Term 2. We reviewed the major activities of the Committee this
past year.
The Master Space Plan for the Library was presented to the Committee at its
September meeting and its recommendations were discussed. Numerous implications
derived from this report are discussed below.
In October we considered the levels of cataloguing reports from the library, and in
November discussed document delivery and the findings of the Interlibrary
 Vancouver Senate 11649
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Loan Task Group. It is clear that Interlibrary Loans are of considerable interest and
concern to faculty and students, at a time when, for example, our serials collection is
being restricted and we become dependent on other libraries to fill this gap. Although
at present UBC sends out more material to borrowers than it receives, the SLC
cautions that the Interlibrary Loan system will need to be closely monitored.
Because currency fluctuations play such a major role in the budget of the library, and
therefore closely affect the ordering and processing of library materials, in December
we received and discussed a report from the Order and Payment Processing Task
Group on the library's initiatives in this regard. A monthly report on serials keeps us
appraised of how these fluctuations are having an impact on our ordering policy.
A major report from AUCC/CARL in the early part of this year formed the basis for
our discussions in January. Every member of faculty has received a copy of this report
which spells out the major implications for library users as we move to a more
electronically based library. The many considerable issues discussed in this report, and
the recommendations appended, will require the ongoing attention of not only the
SLC, but the university community at large. The major issue of copyright will have
profound ongoing effects on the way in which scholars sell and use their works. A
subcommittee of the SLC has considered the recommendations of the AUCC/CARL
report and presented suggestions as to how the SLC might proceed in addressing the
recommendations, at the February meeting. In April we were introduced to the new
DRA system, which the library is in process of implementing, and which will be on
your desktops in a very short time.
It was with great pleasure that the SLC participated in the opening of Koerner in
March, an opening preceded by an enormous amount of careful planning by all library
staff, and of course, the movement of a library of books during our worst snow storms
in December - a move the SLC viewed comfortably from afar.
It is clear that the University must now turn its attention to a careful review and
analysis of the recommendations contained in the Library Master Space Plan, for
despite the ever increasing amount of electronic materials, our collection will continue
to grow in the foreseeable future and considerable imagination and effort will need to
be expended to ensure that it is housed and maintained in appropriate environments.
The SLC therefore brings to the attention of Senate, strategies which should be
considered, and implemented as expeditiously as possible, and which it strongly
endorses.
Plans to decommission Main Library should begin as soon as possible - if occupied in
an earthquake, it will be an unthinkable hazard. Certainly the current materials
remaining in Main should be re-distributed to reduce the floor load.
As many predecessor Senate Library Committees have pointed out to Senate, the card
catalogue needs to be moved from the concourse of Main, the rare Fine
 Vancouver Senate 11650
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Reports of Committees of Senate
Arts collection should be moved from under the sewer pipes in Main to a safer locale,
an urgent effort needs to be made to create more student social study space in Main,
and the units currently in Main should be redistributed within the building to make
the space more useable for users and staff.
As is apparent, the move to Koerner did not give the library more space, it essentially
made Main a somewhat safer building. The Library continues to suffer a severe lack of
space. It is therefore apparent that a Library Research Material Centre, which
recognizes the extreme usefulness of stored materials for scholarship and the
importance of preserving such materials appropriately, and allowing easy user access,
should be planned as quickly as possible. At the same time, compact shelving should
be provided annually in the Law, Woodward and Asian libraries, and the Library
Processing Centre.
The Science and Engineering Library is already at capacity and it is clear that new
facilities will need to be found in the near future. It has been recommended that this
collection move to the Library Processing Centre and be linked with the Woodward
Life Sciences Library.
The Master Space Plan makes it clear that planning for Phase II of the Koerner library
should begin almost immediately. Given that planning for Koerner began initially in
1980, it would seem appropriate that the university approach this important task with
more urgency than that associated with moving a graveyard.
Finally, this has been Dr. Ruth Patrick's final year as University Librarian. On behalf
of the SLC I thank her for the enormous effort and energy she has expended to ensure
that the committee be informed in a timely fashion about all aspects of the Library's
efforts which ensure that its users have access to information and services which are
indeed, second to none.
In speaking to the report, Dr. Gilbert made the following comments. It is apparent that
the move to Koerner did not give the library more space, it essentially made Main a
somewhat safer building. Space continues to be a major concern for the Library. It is
therefore apparent that a Library Research Material Centre, which recognizes the extreme
usefulness of stored materials for scholarship and the importance of preserving such
materials appropriately, and allowing easy user access, should be planned as quickly as
possible. At the same time, compact shelving should be provided annually in the Law,
Woodward and Asian libraries, and the Library Processing Centre.

Minutes of april 16,1997	
Faculty of Graduate Studies
The Science and Engineering Library is already at capacity and it is clear that new
facilities will need to be found in the near future. It has been recommended that this
collection move to the Library Processing Centre and be linked with the Woodward Life
Sciences Library.
The Master Space Plan makes it clear that planning for Phase II of the Koerner library
should begin almost immediately. Given that planning for Koerner began initially in
1980, it would seem appropriate the university to approach this important task with more
urgency than that associated with moving a graveyard.
Finally, this has been Dr. Ruth Patrick's final year as University Librarian. On behalf of
the SLC I thank her for the enormous effort and energy she has expended to ensure that
the committee be informed in a timely fashion about all aspects of the Library's efforts
which ensure that its users have access to information and services which are indeed,
second to none.

PROPOSAL TO ELIMINATE 12 HOUR REGULATION, AND PROPOSAL FOR
MODIFICATION TO LEAVE OF ABSENCE POLICY
It was noted in the material circulated that the current policy states that a full-time
graduate student "may not commit more than 12 hours a week to employment,

Faculty of Graduate Studies
including teaching assistant or academic assistant duties". In an effort to provide
flexibility in doctoral programs, the Faculty proposed that the policy be changed to read:
"All graduate students are registered as full-time students with the exception of Master's
students enrolled in a part-time program. Departments may articulate specific limitations
regarding concurrent paid employment as consistent with participation in full-time study.
PROPOSAL FOR MODIFICATION TO LEAVE OF ABSENCE POLICY
It was noted in the material circulated that from time to time, students seek leave from
one program to take a second program that is consistent with their overall academic
plans. The University records system does not permit concurrent enrolment in UBC
programs in some circumstances. The proposed modification to the leave of absence
policy makes explicit a policy that is currently implicit, rendering it fair and clear to
students and faculty. Further, it would permit the Faculty of Graduate Studies to monitor
the appropriateness of concurrent enrolment in programs.
Dean Granot
Dean Goldberg
All graduate students are registered as full-time
students with the exception of Master's
students enrolled in a part-time program.
Departments may articulate specific limitations
regarding concurrent paid employment as
consistent with participation in full-time study.
That, following academic consultation,
graduate students may apply for leave of
absence from one program to pursue a second
program. The student would be responsible for
leave of absence fees as well as tuition fees for
the second program. Eligibility for the first
program would be extended by the span of
time on the leave of absence.
Carried.

Report of the Task Force to Examine the Administrative Organization of Studies
in Human Health at UBC
Dr. Gilbert presented the report of the Task Force to Examine the Administrative
Organization of Studies in Human Health at UBC, which had been circulated.
Dr. Gilbert l        That the Vice-President Academic and Provost,
Dr. May i        through the Office of the Coordinator of
Health Sciences and the Health Sciences
Coordinating Committee, establish a Health
Programs Council which will report through
the Health Sciences Coordinating Committee
to the Coordinator of Health Sciences; the
Health Programs Council should consist of
elected representatives of each program
represented on the Health Sciences
Coordinating Committee, and
That the Health Sciences Coordinating
Committee establish the composition, duties
and procedures of the Health Programs
Council.
In speaking to the motion, Dr. Gilbert explained that in May 1995, the Senate Ad Hoc
Committee on University Organization presented its Third Report to Senate entitled: "The
Process of Institutional Reform". For the previous two years, the Ad Hoc Committee had
been discussing various aspects of University organizations including the administrative
organization of studies in human health. It had reached the conclusion that the issues
associated with studies in human health at UBC were too large to be considered within
the time frame established for the completion of its work and made a recommendation to
the Vice President, Academic and Provost which resulted in the establishment of the Task
Force to Examine the Administrative Organization of Studies in Human Health.
The TF was convened in December 1995, and finished its deliberations in January 1997.
The membership of the TF is given on page (i) of the Report, and its Terms of Reference
are outlined on page 4.
 Vancouver Senate 11654
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Report of the Task Force to Examine the Administrative Organization of Studies in Human Health at UBC
The TF solicited input by mail and advertisement from both the local community, and
institutions elsewhere in Canada and the United States. We read review documents on all
member programmes of the Health Sciences Coordinating Committee, shown in
Appendix 8.1 - 1 of the report. We surveyed a vast amount of literature both on the
academic organization of health programmes, and the organization of changing health
delivery systems in Canada and the US. We have attempted to view the academic
organization of health programmes in the light of the changing health care delivery
system.
In addressing the terms of reference of the TF, we paid close attention to the academic
structure of the health programmes and their performance as measured through teaching,
research and community service. It is clear from the data we examined that, by and large,
the various "health" related programmes at UBC are delivering high quality professional
education, performing world class research, and in many instances are engaged in
outstanding public service, through professional linkages locally, nationally and
internationally. The Task Force agreed that it would be difficult to imagine how these
characteristics would be significantly improved by some re-engineering of the present
structures.
It is true that there are local concerns about the placement of some of the programmes -
the School of Nursing in the Faculty of Applied Science is the most striking example, but
the place of Family and Nutritional Sciences in Agriculture and Human Kinetics in
Education is also debatable. Our survey of the organization of health programmes at
other universities, however, gave no clear indication that one kind of organization was
better than another, in delivering appropriate professional education and maintaining
high academic standards. The TF deliberated at length, the desirability of a Faculty of
Health Sciences when such a faculty would NOT include medicine, dentistry and
pharmaceutical sciences. The Task Force concluded that such a faculty (first proposed at
this university in 1967) was
 Vancouver Senate 11655
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Report of the Task Force to Examine the Administrative Organization of Studies in Human Health at UBC
not a useful option at this time. We reached this conclusion after agreeing that the
structure of existing Schools and Departments is probably not entirely felicitous and that
future changes should probably more clearly match changes occurring in the field of
health care. Within the context of discussions about a new faculty or faculties, the TF
engaged in considerable and lengthy debate about faculty status for the School of
Nursing. Although there was considerable opinion that such status should be granted, the
TF was unable to reach consensus.
The Office of the Coordinator of Health Sciences, established in 1969 on the
recommendation of the Curtis Report, was also reviewed and the TF agreed that this
office now has the potential to develop the interprofessional and interdisciplinary
leadership in keeping with changes taking place in the health care system. In the emerging
health care system the health care team (long envisaged as the most effective mechanism
for delivering care) has quickly become a reality with the abolition of institutional
disciplinary boundaries. It was clear to the TF that the development of a full
interdisciplinary potential in the health programmes at UBC is urgently in need of a
forum, outside of faculty structures, in which cross-disciplinary discussions can take place
at a remove from resource allocation. Some examples of what we mean by this. At the
present time, various health programmes are cooperating in the development of
interprofessional courses, one which focuses on HIV/AIDS, another which focuses on
adolescence, and a short course which will allow students in their penultimate year of
professional training to work together as teams on clearly identified clinical issues. With
the First Nations Health Careers programme, we hope to develop an interprofessional
curriculum which will address specific issues in First Nations Health whilst at the same
time working on programmes to increase the number of First Nations students in all the
health programmes.
 Vancouver Senate 11656
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Report of the Task Force to Examine the Administrative Organization of Studies in Human Health at UBC
Such initiatives (and others like it) take good will and organization which cross faculty
lines. At present, the forum for initiating such programmes is the Health Sciences
Coordinating Committee, and associated Standing Committees. The TF, in looking at the
closest Canadian analogues to UBC's health programmes, (the UofA and the UofT)
recommends that the Health Sciences Coordinating Committee should be strengthened by
developing an advisory Council whose task would be to serve as a facilitative (not
executive) body for increased interprofessional and interdisciplinary initiatives across the
health programmes. Such initiatives might include, for example, recommendations to
faculties about curricular adjustments to reflect interprofessional and interdisciplinary
work, deliberations on an integrated approach to the use of community facilities for
professional training, and interactions with government on cooperative approaches to
health care delivery. It is clearly recognized by the Task Force that the only authority
which such a body might possess would be that of persuasion.
The TF has carefully considered whether the organization of existing units into some
larger one might be of any significant benefit and concludes, on the basis of data from
many other institutions that administrative reorganizing does not appear to have
significant academic benefits which might warrant any major reorganization at this time.
Any future reorganization will need to address the fundamental problems confronting
society in health delivery - that is, the urgent need to provide imaginative,
interdisciplinary, interprofessional opportunities in educating future health professionals
to work as team members in a large variety of health care settings. We suggest that this
CAN be done if we begin the very difficult task of conceptualizing what the education of
students to work in such teams might embrace.
 Vancouver Senate 11657
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Report of the Task Force to Examine the Administrative Organization of Studies in Human Health at UBC
The Task Force strongly suggests that a Health Programmes Council would provide the
appropriate forum in which to "get things straight before trying to get them right", and
therefore makes the unanimous recommendation, placed before Senate.
In closing, Dr. Gilbert expressed thanks and appreciation to all members of the Task
Force.
In response to a query by Mr. Gray, Dr. Gilbert said that mechanisms would be put in
place to evaluate the effectiveness of the mechanism.
Professor Quayle asked if there was a precedent for such a council in other universities.
Dr. Gilbert responded that the University of Toronto and the University of Alberta had
followed UBC in establishing a co-ordinating committee, and that the University of
Toronto was in the process of considering what our task force is proposing. He also noted
that the University of Alberta has a Health Sciences Co-ordinating Committee and was
seriously deliberating the prospect of a council.
In response to a query by Dean McBride, Dr. Gilbert said that the perceived efficiencies
would be ones which would result in not having to run around to every Faculty in order
to ask a committee in that Faculty to work on a specific problem to do with
interprofessional and interdisciplinary questions.
In amendment:
Dean McBride l        That the operation of the effectiveness of this
Dean Sheehan i        council be reviewed in five years.
In response to a query by Dean Cairns, Dr. Gilbert explained that the establishment of the
council will allow for discussion of issues for which there is no mechanism at the present
time.
The amendment was
put and carried.
 Vancouver Senate 11658
Minutes of april 16,1997	
Other business
Dr. May spoke in support of the proposal, stating that it was frustrating that the Health
Sciences Co-ordinating Committee was the only venue available for discussion of
substantive matters. She said that faculty need to participate more fully in matters that
affect the health sciences program, and she felt that the proposed council would be the
place to start.
After further discussion, the motion
was put and carried.
