Spelling of Matthias leuprecht.
Approved
President's Remarks
President Ono said that he was pleased to announce that two new Canada Excellence Research
Chairs have been appointed: Orlando Rojas as Canada Excellence Research Chair in Forest
Bioproducts, and Sriram Sabramaniam as Gobind Khorana Canada Excellence Research Chair in
Precision Cancer Drug Design. The latter Chair is named after late Nobel Prize-
winning UBC biochemistry professor Har Gobind Khorana. He welcomed both to UBC and
thanked the CERC program and the generous support of our partners, including VGH & UBC
Hospital Foundation, noting that through their support we have an opportunity to continue to
build on UBC's reputation as a global leader in these vitally important research fields.
Dr Ono also said he was pleased to note $18.5 million in new funding from the Networks of
Centres of Excellence, a federal program that connects teams of scientists across Canada to
collaborate on research with significant health, environmental and societal impacts. Two other
UBC-led networks also received $1.6 million each to transfer knowledge to practice—improving
the quality of water for Indigenous and non-urban communities, and supporting the
manufacturing of composite materials for industry. NCE support for these important efforts will
further scientific research and ensure that academic expertise is applied to some of the most
pressing challenges of our time. Further, a total of 18 early career UBC researchers
receive $4.46m from the federal New Frontiers in Research Fund.
Dr Ono announced that Dr. Kalina Christoff, Professor of Psychology and a scholar of the
cognitive science of thought, has been appointed as the Interim Director of the Peter Wall
Institute for Advanced Studies (PWIAS) effective June 1st, 2019. Kalina has a long-standing
relationship with the Institute, having been an Early Career Scholar in 2005, and a Wall Scholar
in 2017.
Finally, the President reminded senators that graduation ceremonies began next Wednesday and
encouraged their attendance.
Senator Singh asked if the PWIAS interim director had a mandate to make any changes.
The President replied that this would be the mandate of the director to propose what
changes she felt were necessary to the Board of Trustees. The Board has not made any
expectations of changes of programming to her.

Senator Singh asked if Senate would be apprised of changes.
The President replied that the Senate has mandated a review of the Institute and the
position of the director is integral to the review.

Philip Loewen }        That the candidates for degrees and diplomas, as
Matthias Leuprecht recommended by the
faculties, be granted the degrees for which they
were recommended, effective May 2019, and that
a committee comprised of the Registrar, the
dean of the relevant faculty, and the Chair of
Senate be empowered to make any necessary
adjustments (approval) (2/3 majority required).

Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President, Enrolment and Academic Facilities, and the
Executive Director of Academic Initiatives from the Office of the Provost and Vice-President
Academic. In addition, other guests attended individual meetings in order to deliver presentations
or provide input on specific issues.
The Committee met seven times in 2018-19, including one joint meeting with the Senate
Academic Building Needs Committee.
The topics addressed by the Committee during the 2018-19 academic year include the following:
1. Portfolio Priorities for the Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic
2. Key Priorities for the Office of the Vice-President, Finance and Operations

Dr Adebar concluded by noting that, working collaboratively with the Office of the Provost and
Vice-President Academic, and the Office of the Vice-President Finance and Operations, the
Vancouver Sub-Committee of the Council of Senates Budget Committee has had a productive
year in which many important issues were openly discussed, debated and investigated, including:
faculty tuition allocation, enrolment planning, fossil fuel divestment, funding for the Integrated
Renewal Plan, hybrid programming, management and performance of endowment and
sustainable pools and future institutional development needs (e.g. classroom, labs & office space,
community & retail services). The student, convocation and faculty Senators on the Committee
provided the president's office and guest presenters with feedback on potential challenges and
opportunities that stemmed from topics of importance to the Committee. The Committee
appreciates the level of consultation and collaboration with senior administration and the
opportunity to provide an important academic perspective on behalf of the Vancouver Senate.
From the Okanagan Senate
The Registrar read a memorial minute from the Okanagan Senate for their former member, and
Vancouver's former faculty member, Dr W. Wesley Pue.
PROFESSOR W. WESLEY PUE
W. Wesley Pue is widely recognized as one of Canada's leading legal historians; a renowned
lawyer, academic and the Nemetz Professor of Legal History at the Peter. A. Allard School of
Law.
Professor Pue was educated in England at Gresham's School, Holt and then at Regent's Park
College, University of Oxford, completing a Bachelor of Arts in Geography (1977), followed by
a Bachelor of Arts in Jurisprudence (1979). Relocating to Canada shortly thereafter, he
completed a Master of Laws at the University of Alberta in 1980. He taught at Osgoode Hall
Law School, Oklahoma City University, and Carleton University. At the University of Manitoba,
he was Johnson Professor of Legal History and the Director of the Canadian Legal History
Project.
Professor Pue joined UBC's Faculty of Law in 1993, and was the first holder of the Nemetz
Chair in Legal History. From 1996 to 1998, he was the director of UBC's graduate program in
Law. He also served as Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research (2003-2007), acting
Director of the Individual Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program, Vice-Provost (Vancouver
Campus, 2007-2011), and Provost (Okanagan Campus, 2011-2013).

Called to the Bars of the Northwest Territories and Alberta and an honorary member of the
Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, Professor Pue held faculty positions or visiting
professorships in Canada, the USA, England, and Australia and served as President of the
Canadian Law and Society Association.
Professor Pue's research and publications focused primarily on legal history, law and society,
law and colonialism, constitutionalism, policing, and national security. He served as the General
Editor for Canada's "Law and Society" book series, published by UBC Press. His bookZaw
School: The Story of legal Education in British Columbia is widely recognized as an
extraordinary contribution to the recorded history of the law school.
During his years at UBC, Professor Pue made many meaningful and lasting contributions, to his
students, his Faculty and the University. He championed the Faculty's graduate research
programs and was a mentor to two generations of legal historians and scholars of legal education
and the legal profession. He was instrumental in the establishment of the LLM Common Law
degree program.
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer their
condolences and thanks.
By general consent Senate added its own condolences to the family and friends ofDr Pue.
Academic Building Needs Committee
Dr Michael Isaacson, Chair of the Committee, presented.
ANNUAL REPORT
Dr Isaacson noted in his report that the Committee undertakes a significant portion of its
activities through engagement in consultation processes on a range of relevant plans, projects and
topics. Such consultations occur in three ways:
• Through presentations to the SABNC.
• Through presentations to the Property and Planning Advisory Committee (PPAC). (All
SABNC members are members of PPAC; the SABNC Chair is Vice-Chair of PPAC.)
• Through meetings of the Capital Planning Working Group (CPWG). (The SABNC Chair is a
member of CPWG.)
In addition, the Committee completed a study of UBC Vancouver's learning spaces delivered to
Senate at its February 2019 meeting. The study entailed three presentations to the Committee, an
analysis of classroom usage, and a consultation process involving feedback in writing and
through an open forum. The report found that the relevant units provide an outstanding level of
service and that the quality of learning spaces overall was excellent. The report provided a
number of suggestions for improvement.

Finally, the Committee has interacted with Enrolment Services with respect to its scheduling
project that is currently underway. Recently, the SABNC Chair has been appointed as Chair of
the Steering Committee for that project.
Overall, during the 2018-19 academic year, the Committee held 7 meetings, including a joint
meeting with the Vancouver Sub-Committee of the Council of Senates Budget Committee, and it
participated in 4 meetings of PPAC. In addition, on behalf of the Committee, the Chair attended
a meeting of CPWG. Details of this work were in the appendices to the written report of the
Committee.
Senator Tees thanked Dr Isaacson and the committee for their work this year.
Academic Policy Committee
The Chair of the Senate Academic Policy Committee, Dr Paul Harrison presented. He thanked
Stephanie Oldford and the members of his committee for their work this year.
V-135: ACADEMIC CONCESSION
Paul Harrison }        That Senate approve Policy V-135 - Academic
Maximillian Holmes Concession as set out in the attached.
Dr Harrison stated that this proposal is based on a current calendar statement that has proven too
succinct and not to provide sufficient guidance to students or faculties. The revised policy
expands upon it and recognizes that program differences need to be better accommodated. He
outlined the importance of syllabi in communicating information to students.
Senator Holmes thanked the Committee and working group. He suggested that the new policy
reflected most faculty's current practices. He suggested that the new policy would be helpful to
faculty, students, and staff.
Senator Forwell asked if departments could be included in the definition of academic advising
office provided.
Senator Harrison said that it was written in such a way as to accommodate different
organizational structures.
Senator Krebs said they did consider this arrangement.
Senator Leuprecht said it was appropriate to take it to the faculty level.
Senator Dauvergne said that in Law they had an interpretation of the current policy that was
close to this document. She asked for clarification if we were changing any recognized
responsibilities for concessions by this policy. If this was not the case, she asked for that to be
minuted for clarity.
Dr Harrison confirmed that no changes were being made for the record.

Senator Dauvergne said she did not think her faculty could implement this for September and
asked if implementation could be delayed to 1 January 2020.
AMENDMENT TO EFECTIVE DATE
Catherine Dauvergne }        That the policy be amended to change the effective
Kin Lo date from 1 September 2019 to 1 January 2020.
Senator Leuprecht asked what would happen if a senate and a faculty policy did not agree.
Mr Eaton replied that the Senate policy would take precedence.
Senator Lo said Commerce would have the same problem as Law.
Dean Dauvergne said her advising office provided feedback to the working group that developed
this policy but not all of that was accommodated.
Richard Tees did not understand why the faculty councils couldn't meet over the summer to
approve changes.
Dean Dauvergne said that their students in particular could not meet over the summer.
Senator Krebs asked what the consequence would be for non-compliance for six weeks.
Senator Matsui said it was a matter of faculty procedures not complying.
Senator Keown said that there was a problem in practice and he suspected other faculties such as
Medicine and Dentistry would have this challenge as well.
Senator Holmes said no one has been able to identify what the consequences occur if faculties do
not comply. He said that the faculty councils need to change their policies to comply with the
Senate policy, and if they cannot do so in time, the faculties need to follow the Senate policy.
Senator Lo said that some faculties needed specific regulations for implementation. If faculty
policies conflict with Senate policies they will be nullified; however, we need those
implementation policies to function.
Senator Isaacson said that the work of the appeals committee was challenging, particularly
because of the different rules in the different faculties and their interactions with the concession
and accommodation policies. The consequence of issues and disagreements between policies is
appeals.
Senator Hakim said delaying the implementation would extend the problems of the current
policy and continue to burden both our appeals committees and health providers who are being
asked for routine notes.

Not Approved
In reference to a question from the Dean of Law, Senator Holmes replied that the list of legal
process reasons for academic concessions was not intended to cover Law students who are
representing parties.
Dean Dauvergne said that Law students could have legal/ethical responsivities to attend
court if this policy allowed for it.
Senator Holmes said that the Faculty could make this clear in their own implementation
rules.
Dean Dauvergne said that this was why she had proposed that the implementation
date be changed.
AMENDMENT TO CONFLICTING RESPONSIBILITIES
By general consent, the Section 8(a)(vi) of the proposed policy was
amended to strike "plaintiff or defendant" and replace that with "party".
Senator Jaeger expressed her concern about removing medical notes for short term absences and
asked if we considered asking for more detailed notes. Those notes were often warning signs of a
student not doing well. This could be a problem for continual assessment as students could
effectively miss an item of choice. She asked how we are going to deal with the possible
consequences.
Dr Harrison said that current medical notes were meaningless and a burden on the
medical system. A student self-declaring is no different than a student declaring to a doctor who
passes it on. Getting these notes is a strain on our health system.
Senator Burnham said that relying on a self-declaration would be misconduct. We need to have
systems in place to support students and to deal with abuse of them if that happens.
Senator Harrison said that the implementation committee would deal with the note
system.
Senator Fischer said that the health system was supposed to support students and seeing a
physician for one helps students engage with that system if they need to.
Senator Harrison said we wanted to get students in contact with the right support.
Senator Singh said that this draft policy looked good. He asked about the implementation and
said more information would be needed to support instructors.
2018-9-8
 UBC
THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate

Senator Harrison said that any instructor who was unclear on how to respond should
consult with those units that are more experienced. Instructors don't have the expertise to assess
certain situations, but other units do.
Senator Holmes said that the concessions policy should never come in conflict with academic
assessment. The implementation committee will also look at communication to faculty and staff
to ensure they are aware of both the policy changes and what resources are available.
Senator Leuprecht asked how co-op would work under this policy. He noted that a student he
knew had issues with the current policy and co-op.
Dr Harrison said that the policy covered all sorts of courses and programs, and said there
would have to be collaboration between the co-op director and the placement.
Senator Isaacson said that this policy was a great improvement but said the appeals section was a
little convoluted and could be made more user friendly.
Dr Harrison said that there was a distinction between issues brought to an instructor in a
course, and issues being brought to an advising office for a dean.
Mr Eaton clarified that decisions of faculties on concessions were academic standing
matters that could be appealed to the Senate.
Senator Gonzalez said that it was unlikely for students to bring up untrue traumatic experiences.
Senator Fisher said that UBC was going to be generating a lot of data from this. He asked if
anyone would be reading these self-reports and if something alarming is raised would we do
something. He suggested that many of the student senators present were older and experienced,
but this system would apply to 17 year olds too. UBC was stepping into the role of being a nexus
of care. How is UBC going to use that data, we can't just have students file a form and then do
nothing with what we know.
Senator Holmes said that he felt the self-declaration would actually be of more use than doctor's
notes as they will go into a central system.
Senator Thorne said that this conversation has brought up many complications and differences
across the university. There is a huge value in having a university-wide policy that states what
we believe in. We know how to make enactment and implementation documents within our
faculties and departments. That exercise will allow us to create better systems.
Senator Agosti-Moro said that many students did not have a doctor or health care provider,
especially those not from the lower mainland. The University's job is not to be a parent.

CENTRE FOR INNOVATIVE DATA IN ECONOMICS RESEARCH
Paul Harrison }        That Senate approve and recommend to the Board
Matthias Leuprecht the establishment of the Centre for Innovative
Data in Economics Research in the School of
Economics as set out in the attached proposal,
effective July 1st 2019.
With permission of Senate, Dr Kevin Milligan, the director-designate of the proposed centre
spoke to the proposal. He noted that in collaboration with Sauder, they wanted to build a lasting
centre for economics and the university. They consulted all around campus and this impressed
upon them the importance of having a hub within economics to work across the university and
with other institutions. This data has privacy and security concerns that we need a system to
support.
Approved
ROLLING GRADUATION
Paul Harrison }        That Senate approve the changes to Academic
Susan Porter Calendar language proposed by the Faculty of
Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies that have the
effect of discontinuing rolling graduation for
graduate students as set out in the attached two-
columnform.
Senator Harrison said that rolling graduation had proven not an effective way of assisting
students. The rolling system was an inordinate administrative burden as students are applying for
graduation earlier than they should. In the interim, a letter system has been developed that will
assist students in applying elsewhere and for employment.

APPEALS ON APPLICATIONS FOR ADMISSION, RE-ADMISSION AND TRANSFER TO
PROGRAMS
Pursuant to section 37(l)(b) of the University Act, the Vancouver Senate has conferred on the
Senate Admissions Committee the power to hear final appeals on applications for admission and
re-admission to the University. The Admissions Committee also reviews and rules on appeals
related to applications for admission/transfer to a Degree or Program.
Between 1 May 2018 and 30 April 2019, the Admissions Committee heard 179 appeals:
• 179 appeals for admission to the University
• 0 appeal for readmission to the University
• 34 appeals for change of degree or program
Of the 179 appeals heard by the Committee, 10 were allowed and 169 were dismissed.
NOMINAL CHANGES TO ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND EDITORIAL CHANGES TO
CALENDAR LANGUAGE
In May 2013, Senate delegated to the Committee final right of approval over nominal changes in
admission requirements and editorial changes to Calendar language. From May 2018 until April
2019, the Committee has approved 41 proposals under delegated authority (compared to 33
proposals in the previous reporting period), 28 of which were nominal changes to admission
requirements and 13 were student mobility agreements, as per Council of Senates Policy C-2:
Affiliations with Other Institutions of learning.
Agenda Committee
With the permission of Senate, former Senator Gattinger spoke to this proposal. He explained
that the Committee was presenting a draft Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest Rules for the
Okanagan and Vancouver Senates for discussion and feedback. Currently, senators disclose
potential or actual conflicts of interest on an ad hoc basis, which are managed with support from
the Senate Secretariat. The proposed rules and code of conduct present a comprehensive
framework for the disclosure and management of conflicts of interest, and articulate duties and
expectations of members of the Senate. Feedback would be welcome over the summer.
Senator Thachuk asked what problem were we trying to solve.
Mr Gattinger said that while it was not a legal requirement for UBC to have such a
document (unlike for some other institutions), it was a good practice for all. He said that
there were circumstances where people have competing interests. This is an attempt to be
pro-active rather than re-active to a problem.

Senator Lo said that, as noted, the University Act does not require this of UBC and he said he felt
that was for a purpose.
Appeals on Academic Standing
The Chair of the Committee, Professor Anthony Sheppard Presented.
ANNUAL REPORT
Professor Sheppard's report noted that's since last reporting to Senate in May 2018, nine (9)
appeals were heard by panels of the Committee (as compared with seven (7) in the prior
reporting period). The Committee unanimously dismissed all appeals heard. The Committee has
been advised that in the past year an additional eleven appeals were presented to the Registrar, of
which one (1) was settled with the Faculty prior to hearing, three (3) were withdrawn by the
appellants prior to hearing, two (2) were closed due to lack of appellants' response, and five (5)
are in progress and expected to be heard by the Committee in the coming weeks.
As a matter of general significance, the Committee suggested that faculties may want to consider
having rules around program maximum duration. The Committee further noted the comments
made at the March meeting of Senate and said the committee is always happy consider how to
improve its procedures.

Student Appeals on Academic Discipline
The Chair of the Committee, Mr. Tariq Ahmed, presented.
ANNUAL REPORT
Mr Ahmed's report for the Committee noted during the period from 1 May 2018 to 30 April
2019, the Senate Committee heard eight appeals involving students disciplined by the President
upon the recommendation of the President's Advisory Committee on Student Discipline (the
"PACSD") or an investigator appointed pursuant to Board of Governors Policy 131. In that time,
four appeals were dismissed, two appeals were allowed and one appeal was allowed in part.
The Senate Committee also provided general comments from its work over the past year:
• The Senate Committee experienced a significant increase in its workload as compared to past
years. In addition to an increase in the number of appeals heard, the appeals of discipline
imposed under Policy 131 tended to be particularly complex and involved more extensive
submissions than other appeals.
• Despite the fact that the Senate Committee is an appellate tribunal and does not re- hear
matters, on some occasions it appears that the student may view the Senate Committee appeal
hearing as an opportunity to have the matter heard anew. This is not the case, and highlights the
importance that should be accorded to earlier stages of the discipline process by participants.
• Two of the appellants in academic discipline appeals claimed that they had difficulties
presenting their cases before the PACSD due to language issues. While the Senate Committee
did not conclude that the PACSD process was rendered unfair in either case, given that the claim
was made twice in recent appeals, the Senate Committee wanted to draw attention to the issue.
Senator Hakim asked if the committee was appropriately supported to consider more complex
appeals.
Senator Ahmed replied that yes, likely because this was the beginning of a new policy
that significantly affected student discipline so as things develop the workload may adapt
to that.
Senator Hakim asked if translators or interpreters are available if needed.

DIGITAL LEARNING MATERIALS
Richard Tees }        That Senate endorse the UBC Principles for

It was noted that while Ontario and Alberta currently have restrictions on such costs, BC does
not.
Senator Thachuk asked if these principals would be enforced.
Senator Bates said 65 dollars was a typical amount. There were compelling points made in
benefit of the materials. We can use these principles around faculty practice and this gives us a
leaver to engage with publishers.
Senator Holmes said that cost of learning materials at any price can be a barrier to students and
he hoped that conversation was advanced with the budget committee and board. He expected the
government to take action here. UBC coming out earlier shows us leading in this area.
Senator Lo said that as principles, the wording seemed problematic as it was too strong.
Senator Thachuk said that it was a mistake to discourage the use of useful tools. The issue is the
cost. The university could cover costs if they wanted to.

Senator Holmes said that he appreciated the update in seeing how this had been implemented;
however, he was concerned by the length of time it has taken to have a conversation around
metrics. We were promised the metrics coming forward to Senate in the fall and that didn't
happen. He said that we asked for progress towards metrics in the spring and that hasn't
happened. Perhaps we can have those for the fall.

INCLUSION ACTION PLAN
Dr Szeri introduced Associate Vice-President Sara-Jane Finlay who, with permission of Senate,
presented on the Inclusion Action Plan.
Dr Finlay explained that the purpose of this plan was to operationalize inclusion at UBC, and to
ensure that every unit can incorporate actions to support greater inclusion into their unit-level
strategic plans. A key component of this was defining what was meant by inclusion. The draft
definition in use was: At UBC, inclusion is a commitment to creating a welcoming community
where those who are historically, persistently, and systemically marginalized are treated
equitably, feel respected, and belong.   Inclusion is built by individual and institutional
responsibility through continuous engagement with diversity to inspire people, ideas and actions
for a better world.
Further to this, five draft goals were being developed: capacity building; recruitment, retention,
and success; systems change; learning, research, and engagement; and accountability.
Senator Stothers asked why external comment wasn't greater.
Dr Finlay said we focused our activities on campus. We do plan to take the next draft to
community groups such as indigenous nations, and the University Neighbourhoods
Association.
Senator Holmes raised the question of elected offices at the university. How can we ensure that
those elections are more inclusive and candidates have support?
Dr Finlay said that the desire to bring more people in was important so that we had a
diversity of voices. The research shows that the best way to get people to participate is
through personal contact, not broad calls. To that end she asked information is made
available to candidates and what supports are available for those elected?
Senator Gonzalez asked how we could consult with those already doing these things around
campus in different ways.

REPORT FROM THE REGISTRAR
APPEALS PRACTICES
2018-9-22
 UBC       THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
9
Dr Ross presented the following report.
The March meeting of Senate concluded with a discussion of the Senate's appeal committees in
which concerns were raised on behalf of student members. The Senate Secretariat is always
grateful for comments on Senate processes from members of Senate. Feedback from student
members is particularly welcome given their unique perspective.
The purpose of this memorandum is to acknowledge the concerns and recommendations raised
in March. It provides additional background about Senate appeal processes and indicates
possible avenues for addressing the concerns raised. It is not a complete or final response, but
rather a first step in applying this feedback towards ongoing efforts to continuously improve
Senate processes. It has been shared with the members of both appeal committees, but has been
prepared by the Secretariat and does not necessarily represent the views of the committee
members.
Senate Appeal Processes
The University Act designates Senate as the final body of appeal in matters of academic standing
and student discipline. To fulfill this function, Senate has established two appeal committees -
the Senate Committee on Appeals of Academic Standing and the Senate Committee on Student
Appeals on Academic Discipline. The membership of the appeal committees includes student,
convocation and faculty senators. Each Committee is guided by terms of reference and by rules
governing the process by which appeals come before the Committees and how they are heard
and decided. Both Committees issue reasons in writing in every appeal heard, and the decisions
of the Committees are subject to judicial review by the Courts.
Student Membership on Committees
The committees recognize the important contribution made by their student members. The
practice of the Secretariat has long been to ensure student representation at every appeal hearing.
While exceptions to this rule have been made due to scheduling constraints, they have been very
rare.
The Secretariat will continue to ensure student involvement in appeals. However, it is important
to recognize the impact that additional constraints on panel composition would have on members
and on the timeliness of hearings. Mandating greater student involvement by requiring multiple
students at each hearing, or that students from specific constituencies be involved in certain
appeals may increase the demands placed on student members. It may also make it more difficult
to schedule hearings, leading to delays for student appellants who may be pursuing time-
sensitive appeals.
Diversity
Diversity in any decision-making body, including adjudicative bodies like the appeal committees
is important. Both Committees hear appeals in panels of five or more, and the composition of
each panel is considered when scheduling hearings. However, the ability of the Secretariat to
2018-9-23
 UBC       THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
9
ensure diverse hearing panels is constrained by the composition of the Committee and, in turn,
that of Senate. Ultimately, the composition of the Committee is determined by the Senate
Nominating Committee (and Senate), which must balance the importance of diversity on these
Committees with the importance of diversity on others, alongside other considerations including
member preferences.
Education and On-Boarding
Regular training is essential to the effective operation of the committees. Progress has been made
in the past year in the training provided to members. For the first time, we have been able to
offer training tailored to the work of the Committees in place of generalized administrative
justice training. Additionally, orientation sessions are offered to all new members once
appointed.
Among the challenges faced in providing effective training in the past has been a lack of control
over the timing and nature of training, and a lack of certainty over available resources. To
address the concerns raised, the Secretariat proposes to prepare a formal education and training
plan. This training plan could include both administrative justice training and more focused
training on issues relevant to the committees. The Secretariat will continue to offer orientations
to new members.
The Secretariat will also ensure that new student senators understand the expectations associated
with serving on appeal committees prior to students requesting committee assignments.
Scheduling
Scheduling is one of the most challenging elements of managing Senate appeals. Appellants are
often eager to move forward with appeals as quickly as possible, while it can be difficult for
respondents, committee members and witnesses to fit lengthy hearings into already busy
schedules.
In the past year, the Secretariat has experimented with replacing the previous ad hoc model of
scheduling with a fixed schedule of hearing dates set at the beginning of each term. The feedback
received on this model has been mixed. Efforts to refine the scheduling system will continue.
Appeal hearings are typically set for three hours, though each case is assessed to determine
whether more time is required. In most cases, three hours is ample time. However, the need to
ensure that the parties have a full opportunity to present their case has resulted in rare instances
in which hearings have run over time. In such cases, the Chair may extend the hearing with the
consent of the members and the parties, or the hearing may be re-scheduled for continuation.
Process
The Secretariat recognizes the difficulty some students have in navigating appeal processes. We
provide guidance to the extent possible, and always refer students to the AMS Advocacy Office
and the Ombudsperson. However, given the relationship between the Secretariat and the
2018-9-24
 UBC       THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
9
Committees, it would be inappropriate to provide strategic advice to students pursuing appeals.
Despite the guidance offered by the Senate Secretariat and the referrals to external support
services, many students proceed through the appeal process without assistance.
Given the need to maintain the independence of the Committee and the Secretariat, additional
support for students involved in appeal processes is best provided by other units within the
University or student government. However, there may be limited steps the Secretariat can take
to provide greater support for students, including the creation of templates for required
documents to provide guidance regarding expected format and content and the production of a
companion document to the appeal rules that would translate the rules into plain language.
The discussion at the March Senate meeting also included recommendations for the University's
administrative justice processes more broadly. If misinterpreted as being directly applicable to
Senate appeal processes, they may have resulted in confusion regarding the committees and their
practices. The following is intended to clarify the nature and scope of Senate appeals. These
recommendations will be forwarded to other appropriate units within the University.
1. The Senate Committee on Student Appeals on Academic Discipline hears appeals of
disciplinary decisions and reviews individual discipline decisions. The Committee does
not impose discipline and would not be responsible for establishing generally applicable
categories of misconduct or ranges of penalties outside of individual cases.
2. The Senate Committee on Appeals of Academic Standing hears appeals of matters of
academic standing. The Committee's jurisdiction is limited to a review of procedures
employed by the Faculties in assigning and reviewing academic standing. The Committee
has no jurisdiction over questions of academic judgment.
3. The final stage before a decision in any appeal is the hearing, at which appellants are
present and entitled to make submissions (including a right of final reply - the 'last word'
in the process). There is no stage in the appeal process in which the Committee receives
information or recommendations from anyone other than the parties or the Secretariat.
4. Students involved in Senate appeals are always provided with copies of all materials
considered by the Committees in advance of the appeal hearing. The Committees do not
consider materials not previously provided to the student.
Senator Leuprecht thanked the Senate Office for being on top of training.

4371 - Agnes and Gilbert Hooley Scholarship in Chemistry
Rationale for Proposed Changes
This endowment was established in 1988 and originally had a spend of $900 in awards. Since
then, the endowment has grown to $1.5M and generates $64,000 in spending. Currently, the
Department of Chemistry is unable to completely assign the yearly spend amount due to an
award description that limits the number of awards that can be given out by academic year. After
reviewing the terms of the endowment with University Counsel and consulting with the
Department of Chemistry, we have drafted an award description that meets the requirements of
the endowment without restricting the number of awards that can be assigned, enabling the spend
to be fully assigned each year.
Current Award Description
J. Gilbert Hooley (1914-1987), UBC B.A. (1934) and M.A. (1936) and MIT Ph.D. (1939), joined
the UBC Chemistry Department (1942-1979) after three years with Coining Glass Works. The
data he produced on the atomic weight of rubidium is considered a classic piece of research, and
he also carried out pioneering research in the areas of specific heat measurements and staging in
graphite compounds. In 1979 he received the prestigious Charles E. Pettinos Award. Dr. Hooley
married Agnes Schroeder, UBC B.A. (Hons), M.A., A.T.C.M and L.R.S.M, in 1939. Mrs.
Hooley taught chemistry at UBC from 1944 to 1956. The Hooleys had a life-long involvement
with music, literature and the arts plus a serious concern about broader social issues. In
recognition of their contributions to UBC, scholarships valued up to the cost of one year's tuition
have been endowed by their colleagues and friends for: two third-year chemistry students; two
fourth-year chemistry students; and two graduate chemistry students. Preference is given to
students with awareness of the social role of science. Awards are made on the recommendation
of the Hooley Fund Committee within the Department of Chemistry, and in the case of graduate
students, in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Proposed Award Description
Scholarships totalling $63,000 have been made available through an endowment established by
friends and colleagues in honour of Agnes and J. Gilbert Hooley for outstanding students in the
Department of Chemistry. The number of scholarships should be split equally between third year
undergraduate students, fourth year undergraduate students, and graduate students. Each award
should not exceed the value of tuition. Preference will be given to students with an awareness of
the social role of science. J. Gilbert Hooley (1911 1987), UBC (B.A. (1934),-and

award description be updated to allow for multiple awards to be assigned. In keeping with the
