Chair's Remarks and Related Questions
25 YEAR CLUB CELEBRATION
The President reported having attended a ceremony on May 14, 2002 to induct 62 new
members into the 25 Year Club. The new inductees had each served the University as staff
members for a 25-year continuous period. President Piper described the event as a
remarkable celebration and

Candidates for degrees
an opportunity to recognize the contributions of individuals who have given extensively
to the University across a diverse range of fields.
REINVESTMENT OF TUITION FEE INCREASES
The President reported that extensive consultation had taken place over the previous six
weeks with student groups, deans of Faculty, and heads of unit regarding how the
University should reinvest in the learning environment funds received from increased
tuition fees. A report on proposed funding allocations was to be tabled at an upcoming
meeting of the Board of Governors. President Piper stated that, although it was clear that
the tuition fee increases could not possibly be enough to fund all of the proposals that
came forward, the University was pleased to begin the process of reinvestment.
MAY 2002 CONGREGATION CEREMONIES
Beginning the following week, 5663 students were scheduled to graduate in a total of 22
ceremonies scheduled over a six-day period. The President encouraged each member of
Senate to attend at least one of the congregation ceremonies, which she described as very
important to our students, their families, and our community. Many distinguished
honorary degree recipients were also scheduled to attend the ceremonies to receive their
degrees.
Candidates for degrees

Admission
Admission to the Dietetics major is limited to students who have already completed 30 credits
of university or college coursework, which must include all the pre-requisites of English (3
credits), Biology 112, Biology 121, Biology 140 and Chemistry 111/113 or 121/123, or their
equivalents. Six credits in Social Science (PSYC 100 or SOCI 100 or equivalent) are
recommended. Admission is based on a minimum academic standing of at least 70%
calculated on a minimum of 21 credits of university or college courses including all prerequisites and any other courses required by the program. For applicants who have only
completed all the pre-requisites but no other required courses, up to 5 credits of unrestricted
electives will be used to calculate their standing. Due to enrolment limitations, the academic
standard required for admission may be higher than the published minimum.

Rationale:
The Dietetics Program has limited enrolment. Procedures for calculating admission GPA are
being changed to ensure consistency in assessing applicants. Previous calculation procedures
included elective courses in the calculation. Because electives vary
 Vancouver Senate 12921
Minutes of May 15,2002	
Admissions Committee
widely between applicants, the calculated GPAs were not equivalent. To make the admissions
process fair to all students that apply, we have decided to calculate the GPA primarily on
prerequisite and required courses completed. Electives will contribute to the number of credits
required to apply but will be considered in the calculation of the GPA after all pre-requisites
and any required courses have been included.
Changes to required Chemistry courses follow changes approved for Science.
Effective Date:	
Dr. Rosengarten i        That the proposed changes to the admission

Admissions Committee
Changes to Biology and Chemistry requirements, and overall total credits reflect Senate
approved curriculum changes in the Faculty of Science.
Currently two options are given for this double major. It was felt that this should be a true
double major and that students in this program should take the key courses associated with
each major. This change will extend the time required for the degree by one term but will
solve time-tabling problems and thus allow students to take the required courses.

(insert the following as a new program section before the Bachelor of Science in Agroecology
section)
Bachelor of Environmental Design
The Bachelor of Environmental Design (B.E.D.) Program is a 4 year, non-professional degree
offered jointly by the Landscape Architecture Program in the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences
and the School of Architecture in the Faculty of Applied Science. It is intended as a
preparatory degree for students interested in pursuing a Master of Architecture, Landscape
Architecture or Planning, or for those who wish to have a greater understanding of the role of
design in the broad environmental decision-making processes of society.
The first and second years of the program focus on giving the student a general academic
background in the Arts and Sciences. The third and fourth years of the program emphasize
design learning supported by ecological, social, theoretical and technical courses.
ADMISSION
Students apply for admission to the Bachelor of Environmental Design Program in the second
year. Prospective students enrol in a first year university program of their choice at a
recognized university or college. For first year admission requirements students are directed to
the admission requirements of those institutions and their respective programs of study.
Students are encouraged, where appropriate to their program of study, to complete the UBC
equivalent of 6 credits of first year English, and GEOG 101 (6) in their first year studies.
Admission to the B.E.D. Program is competitive; the program accepts a maximum of 30
students per year. Admission is based on the student's academic standing, submission of a
portfolio demonstrating general creative abilities, completion of an admissions questionnaire,
and a letter expressing interest in the program. Students seeking transfer from other
universities and colleges may be granted advanced credit for parallel courses in the first two
years of the B.E.D. Program where standings obtained are above minimum passing grade at
those institutions.
For detailed Program and Admission information, interested students are encouraged to
contact the B.E.D. Program Office directly at bed_prog@interchange.ubc.ca or telephone

Rationale:
UBC offers graduate programs in Landscape Architecture (Faculty of Agricultural Sciences),
Architecture (Faculty of Applied Science), and Community and Regional Planning (Faculty of
Graduate Studies). A broad undergraduate education in environmental design would
strategically contribute to the overall environmental program offerings at UBC and provide an
enhanced and deliberate trajectory for students anticipating careers in the design professions.
The proposed Bachelor of Environmental Design program has been developed to do so. It is a
4-year (8 semester) program, with direct entry to the second year of the program from Arts or
Science.
Because of this unique joint offering, and a desire to equally acknowledge the program's
relationship to both the professions of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, we prefer to
list the B.E.D. program in each Faculty's academic offerings.

GRADUATE STUDIES: INTERDISCIPLINARY ONCOLOGY, NEW PROGRAM
Present Calendar Entry:
N/A
Proposed Calendar Entry:
Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Science
The Faculty of Graduate Studies Interdisciplinary Oncology Program offers advanced study
and research in a variety of fields relating to oncology. The focus on interdisciplinarity is
accomplished through a breadth of coverage in the following disciplines: molecular and
cellular biology, genetics, biophysics, bioinformatics, pharmaceutical sciences, radiological
sciences, immunology, sociobehavioural studies and epidemiology. This provides graduate
students from diverse backgrounds with an education in a number of disciplines relating to
oncology and intensive training in specialized aspects of oncology through thesis research. The
objective is to combine knowledge from multiple disciplines to enhance progress in this
complex field of research.

GRADUATE STUDIES, MEDICINE: MASTER OF HEALTH ADMINISTRATION - CHANGE
TO GRADUATE PROGRAM
Present Calendar Entry (page 226, column 2):
The Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.) degree provides students with the academic
and professional foundations necessary for leadership in the health care field. An alliance with
BCIT enables easy access to many MHA courses in distance education formats such as online
education or guided independent study. This makes the MHA program particularly suitable
for mid-career health professionals or for strongly motivated younger students.
While the basic MHA program takes two years of full-time study to complete, the actual
length of the program varies depending on one's background. A student with an academic
background in Commerce or with an undergraduate degree in health administration may
forego much of the first, or foundation year. A student with extensive health care experience
may choose to do only one internship rather than the usual two.
Academic flexibility is provided through a large number of elective courses, a clerkship, an
optional management project, and a major essay. More information can be found in the online
MHA brochure. Applications deadlines are March 1 for entry in September and September 15
for entry in January.
Proposed Calendar Entry: (delete present entry and replace with the following):
The Department of Health Care and Epidemiology in collaboration with the Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration offers a professional degree curriculum leading to a
Master of Health Administration (MHA).
The MHA has an executive focus and is taught in modular (1.5 credit) format: Friday
afternoon through Sunday, one weekend per month. The full program will take two years to
complete.
The MHA curriculum provides the educational and professional foundations for leadership in
the health care field. It emphasizes analytical thinking and focuses on preparing students for a
career in health care management.
The overall goal of the program is to provide graduates who are skilled professionals with in-
depth applied administrative research tools capable of identifying and solving complex
organizational and assessment problems in the health services delivery sector. Graduates of
this program have the health care training plus the business skills to creatively manage in an
ever-more complicated health care sector. Further details and information on admissions is
available at www.healthcare.ubc.ca
The Faculty of Graduate Studies outlines the minimum requirements for admission to
Graduate Programs at UBC. For more information about the role of Graduate Studies and to
view the Faculty's policies and procedures manual, visit the Graduate Studies website:
www.grad.ubc. Applicants from a university outside Canada in which English is not the
primary language of instruction must meet the English Language Proficiency Requirement.
Students who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents should review the section on
International Students.
Applications for admission to the MHA program will be evaluated based on a combination of
academic achievement, GMAT/GRE results, and/or relevant work experience. If the applicant
does not already have GMAT or GRE results, the GMAT should be written prior to
 Vancouver Senate 12944
Minutes of May 15,2002	
Admissions Committee
submission of the application. In addition to the minimum requirements, applicants are asked
to include a cover letter that outlines their motivation for completing the MHA program as
well as a resume. Professional experience and publications may be considered for those who
do not meet the GPA requirements. Applicants who have limited relevant work experience
may be required to complete a Residency/Internship placement in addition to the regular
graduation requirements.
Ideally, the letters of reference should indicate how the referee has come to know the applicant
and why they feel the applicant will succeed in the MHA program. Where feasible, the
selection of referees should be made so that two of the letters relate primarily to work
experience and career progression including community service while the third deals with
academic performance.

Proposed Calendar Entry: (page 206, column 1):
Health Care and Epidemiology (M.H.A.) TOEFL (paper) 570; TOEFL (computer) 230; GRE

Rationale:
The delivery of the new curriculum is consistent with the learning strategies laid out in Trek
2000. The new MHA will include faculty and students working together with industry,
government and other organizations in applied research and management projects. Students in
this program will work closely with health care sector management, delivery and research
organizations in BC.
There is currently no comparable program in BC. The only similar program existed as a joint
BCIT-UBC "bridging" program in which the first year was offered at BCIT and the second at
UBC. This program stopped accepting new students in January 2001 at the direction of the
Dean of Graduate Studies. The revisions to the MHA curriculum are in response to the
recommendations of an external review panel and consultations that resulted in a moratorium
being placed on the "bridging" program with BCIT and reinstatement of the full program
being offered by UBC.
The program will be a full-cost recovery program. This includes all teaching, research time for
faculty, administration, space and promotion costs. Additional graduate students may lead to
a slight increase in the use of library resources and it is anticipated that the MHA program will
support the cost of any new library materials. The existing faculty members have the expertise
to deliver this program. There are currently 31 tenure stream faculty in Health Care and
Epidemiology and 80 tenure stream faculty in Commerce. The teaching facilities and
computer labs available at the UBC main cam-

SENATE COMMITTEE ON TEACHING AND LEARNING
As Chair of the Nominating Committee, Dr. Williams presented the following report.
The Nominating Committee proposes that the activities of the various Ad Hoc Committees
struck from time to time to consider aspects of teaching be combined with the proposed
Learning Committee to form a new standing committee of Senate on Teaching and Learning
with the following terms of reference:
1. To advise Senate on such matters of teaching and learning as may be referred to it
from time to time.
2. To assess the efficacy of the University's programs with regard both to the quality of
the instruction and to the learning outcomes.
3. To review any new initiatives that are proposed to enhance learning; to identify
problem areas and suggest corrective measures.
Dr. Williams stated that the present Nominating Committee had not addressed
membership of the proposed Committee, but would leave that task to the new
Nominating Committee, which was to be elected during the summer of 2002.
Dr. Williams l        That the proposed establishment and terms of
Mr. Greathed J       reference for a Senate Committee on Teaching
and Learning be approved.
Members of Senate made the following comments and suggestions:
1. The proposed terms of reference assigned a largely reactive role to the
Committee. It was suggested that the terms be amended to allow the
Committee to work more proactively. Dean Isaacson suggested that the first
term be amended to read, "To advise Senate on such matters of teaching and
learning as it may consider appropriate, or as may be referred to it from time to
time."
2. The second term should be clarified to ensure that such assessment would be
conducted in a consultative and collaborative, rather than police-like, fashion.
There was concern about placing the power of evaluation with an external
group. Dr. Williams responded that, since the proposed Committee would
report to Senate, it was not intended to act as an external group. It was
suggested that the second term be amended to begin, "[t]o provide guidance
on..." Dr. Williams encouraged Senate to avoid approving a lukewarm
approach, but rather to assign to the Committee the mandate to critically assess
learning methods.

Ad hoc Committee on the Academic Implications of Mandatory Retirement at Age 65
Ad hoc Committee on the Academic Implications of Mandatory Retirement at
Age 65
Note: the full text of this report is not included in the Minutes. Copies may be obtained
from the Manager, Senate & Curriculum Services.
Professor Sheppard presented the report, as Chair of the Committee. He thanked the
members of the Committee for their work on the report, citing in particular Walter
Sudmant, who had provided informative graphs.
Professor Sheppard stated that, although the University would face a shortage of teaching
faculty as current faculty retire in large numbers, there did not exist any provision for
appointing faculty to tenured terms after mandatory retirement. It was the hope of the
Committee that UBC Policy 52 could be amended by the Board of Governors to permit
tenured terms in exceptional cases after age 65. The Committee recommended that
mandatory retirement should be retained, but applied more flexibly than current practice
allowed.
The Committee suggested that, because of the magnitude and urgency of the impending
crisis, a consultative process precede the proposed amendments to Policies ##52 and 27.
Professor Sheppard reported that Vice President McBride had indicated willingness to
chair a consultative group.
Professor Sheppard, referring to Appendix D of the report, pointed out that the above-
mentioned Board of Governors policies could be amended without violating current
collective agreements.
Professor Sheppard l        That Senate receive the report of the ad hoc
Dean Isaacson i        Committee on the Academic Implications of
Mandatory Retirement at Age 65.
 Vancouver Senate 12953
Minutes of May 15,2002	
Ad hoc Committee on the Academic Implications of Mandatory Retirement at Age 65
Discussion
Mr. Affleck commended the Committee on its report, and commented that an objective
mechanism would be required to determine which faculty to retain.
Dr. Berger spoke against the recommendation to propose amendments to Policies ## 52
and 27. He stated that, although the University was definitely facing a shortage of
teaching faculty due to retirements, the current policies were flexible enough to allow
faculty to continue to teach after age 65 in exceptional circumstances. In Dr. Berger's
opinion, the larger challenge was in the area of faculty renewal, and allowing the
extensions of tenured appointments beyond age 65 would have undesirable consequences.
In response to a query from Dr. Yaworsky about appropriate next steps, Vice President
McBride reminded members of Senate that the policies in question were approved by the
Board of Governors, and that the Board would be responsible for making any
amendments. Vice President McBride stated that he would be willing, however, upon
instruction from Senate, to enter into a consultative discussion based on the ad hoc
Committee's report. He suggested that the consultative group have representation from
Senate, but that it not be a committee of Senate. The group would report back to Senate
at a later date. President Piper added that the Board of Governors reviewed each of its
policies on a regular basis, and that it might be timely to review Policies ##52 and 27.

Vice President McBride
Mr. Affleck
That Senate receive the report of the ad hoc
Committee on the Academic Implications of
Mandatory Retirement at Age 65,
and;
That the Vice President, Academic and Provost
be instructed to implement a consultative
process regarding the review and/or
amendment of Board of Governors Policies ##
52 and 27,
and;
That the above-mentioned consultative group
be instructed to report back to Senate in
November 2002.
It was agreed that, whether or not the issue of mandatory retirement was a bargaining
issue involving the Faculty Association, the Faculty Association would be involved in the
consultative process. Dr. Tees reminded members of Senate that the ad hoc Committee
had recommended that the University maintain mandatory retirement, but that it also
increase its flexibility regarding post-retirement teaching contracts.
Vice President McBride reassured members of Senate that faculty recruitment was
proceeding in a positive way: 120 new faculty members had been hired thus far in 2002.
Although the University was not always able to fill vacant faculty positions, it had been
reasonably successful in recruiting. Because it may become more difficult to replace
retiring faculty in the future, Vice President McBride stated that it was time to begin
consultation.
The amended
motion was put
and carried.
The President thanked Professor Sheppard and the other members of the Committee for
their very useful report.

Dr. Williams, as a member of a recent departmental review committee for the Department
of Germanic Studies, spoke in support of the proposed name as a way to reflect the
breadth of the Department. He stated that the review committee had found that faculty in
the Department of Germanic Studies had been required to take on significant extra duties
in order to maintain the Department's breadth and depth, and asked the Provost whether
any steps had been taken to ameliorate the situation. Vice President McBride responded
that he and the Dean of Arts were in

CHANGES TO THE CALENDAR ENTRY ON STUDENT DISCIPLINE
Mr. Silzer presented the following report for information. He stated that these modest
changes would permit the President to act more expeditiously because the necessity of
meeting with each student individually had been removed.
FOR THE 2002-03 UBC CALENDAR
Changes to the 'Procedures' section under the Student Discipline heading
PROCEDURES
Section 61 of the UNIVERSITY ACT gives the President of the University the power to
suspend students and to deal summarily with any matter of student discipline. To advise the
President on measures to be taken, the President has established the President's Advisory
Committee on Student Discipline. An alleged instance of student misconduct deemed serious
enough for action by the President shall be referred to the Committee unless otherwise
directed by the President. After an investigation and The Committee will conduct a hearing at
which the student is invited to appear, the Committee will reports to the President, who will
then make the final decision. The student then has the opportunity to meet with the President,
if he or she wishes, before the President arrives at a decision.
A student suspected or apprehended in the commitment of an offence shall be notified within
a reasonable period of time of intention to report the alleged offence to the department head,
dean, or other appropriate person. The student shall also be given the opportunity to explain
the incident and, if he or she requests, to meet with the depart-

ment head, dean, or other appropriate person, before the alleged offence is reported to the
President.
A record of a penalty imposed may be recorded on a student's official transcript.
A student who is a respondent in proceedings under the University's Policy on Discrimination
and Harassment (#3) may be the subject of a disciplinary recommendation made to the
President by a panel constituted under that policy. Before making a decision whether to act on
a recommendation of discipline by the panel, the President may afford the student an
opportunity to meet together before making a decision.
Revised May 13, 2002
Rationale
The University Act vests the President with the power to deal summarily with any matter of
student discipline. The existing Calendar entry could be construed as limiting these powers of
the President. The proposed changes are intended to remove such confusion and do not
materially change the process that will continue to be followed in most discipline cases. The
proposed changes to the calendar entry will ensure that the President's ability to deal with
time-sensitive or emergency situations without first convening the President's Advisory
Committee is unhindered. Similarly, the necessity of a student meeting with the President in
every case has been removed as there are instances in which the President may need to act
quickly on a recommendation of her Advisory Committee, and a meeting with the student is
impossible or cannot be scheduled in a timely manner. All decisions of the President remain
subject to review by the Senate Committee on Student Appeals on Academic Discipline.

REPORT FROM THE BUDGET COMMITTEE
Dr. MacEntee gave the following oral report, as Chair of the Committee.
Procedural Issues
Last year, I requested on behalf of the Committee that the terms of reference of the Senate
Budget Committee be clarified to highlight the advisory role of the committee on " Statements
of Intent for New Programs." Subsequent to this request, the Agenda Committee considered
our suggestion for an additional term of reference, but decided that we could fulfill our
mandates within the existing terms. So, we now have in place a process for assessing the
budgetary implications of new programs of study. We feel again this year that the process
works well and efficiently as we considered the budgetary implication of nine new programs,
all of them approved subsequently by Senate. I should note here that the Committee raised
some issues on all of the proposals, and that our concerns were resolved to our satisfaction
following additional consultations.
Budget Development and Priorities
President Piper involved the SBC openly and clearly throughout the year in the development of
the budget. Of particular interest this year have been the negotiations and
 Vancouver Senate 12958
Minutes of May 15,2002	
Other Business
consultative process used to determine the tuition fee increases. We were consulted fully, and
we approve of the final outcome.
More recently, we have been involved in discussions about the accountability of the
Administration for the ways in which the revenues from the fee increases will be spent.
Apparently, the Board of Governors have requested a full accounting of the impact of the
increase on our teaching and on other affairs of direct benefit to the students. We will
continue to monitor these developments.
Other Matters
• The new UBC Bond Issue went on the market successfully in late November. It will
allow UBC to finance large projects such as student housing, faculty/staff housing,
ancillary business expansion, and the infrastructure of our energy supply.
• There was a year-end surplus in the budget due to the increased student enrolment.
Much of this surplus will be distributed to cover the additional costs associated with
the over-enrolment of students this academic year.
• We heard also about the indirect cost of research funding and our successes in the
Federal research programs, such as the Canada Fund for Innovation and the Canada
Research Chairs.
• We heard that the concerns about the St. John's College buildings were under
investigation.
Budgetary Inspections and Advice
We are now in the process of hearing reports from the ancillary services of the University.

STATUS OF PROFESSIONAL LIBRARIANS
Ms. Friesen gave the following notice of motion to be presented at the September 2002
meeting of Senate.
Whereas professional librarians belong to the Faculty Association and receive all the same
privileges and recognitions granted to the teaching and research faculty in that context, and;
Whereas professional librarians are currently ineligible to vote in the election for Chancellor
and Convocation Senators because of the definition of " faculty members" in the
 Vancouver Senate 12959
Minutes of May 15,2002	
Other Business
University Act, which reads "a person employed on a full time basis by a university who has
served for 4 months or longer as an instructor, lecturer, assistant professor, associate
professor, professor, or in an equivalent position designated by the Senate," and;
Whereas there appears to be a provision for Senate to include others in the definition of
"faculty member" as stated in the phrase "or in an equivalent position designated by the
Senate,"
I move that Senate consider this provision to designate librarians to be "in an equivalent
position" to faculty members for this purpose and grant professional librarians the same
privileges or recognitions as those for teaching and research faculty and/or consider using
other provisions of Senate to add professional librarians to the "roll of convocation of the
University."
Respectfully submitted,
Margaret Friesen
Librarians' representative to Senate
Seconded by,
Catherine Quinlan
University Librarian
The President accepted the notice of motion and directed the Secretary of Senate to place
this item on the agenda for the September 2002 meeting of Senate.
U21 GLOBAL UPDATE
Dr. Fisher recalled a debate in April 2001 regarding UBC's participation in U21 Global,
and reminded members of Senate that the Vice President, Academic and Provost had
agreed to report back to Senate annually on the status of U21 Global. He asked Vice
President McBride when that report might be forthcoming. Furthermore, Dr. Fisher
requested that Vice President McBride address the 20 questions about U21 Global that
had been prepared by the Faculty Association. Vice President McBride responded that he
had understood the report to be due in September 2002, and assured members of Senate
that his answers to the Faculty Association's questions would be part of that report. Vice
President McBride reported that the President of U21 Global had recently been
appointed. Vice President McBride had been appointed to the U21 Global Academic
Standards Council.

Appendix B: Awards for Approval
Appendix B: Awards for Approval
PREVIOUSLY-APPROVED AWARDS WITH CHANGES IN TERMS:
Global Citizen of Tomorrow Award: Delete this award title and roll the funding into the
International Leader of Tomorrow Award.
Rationale: The two awards-Global Citizen of Tomorrow Award and International Leader
of Tomorrow Award-were originally structured to represent two significantly different
levels of funding. The former was an award of $27,000 and the latter an award ranging
from $12,000 to $20,000, depending on need. Recent and forecasted increases in
international tuition fees have led to a blurring of the values of these two awards. Since
the two awards have very similar criteria of adjudication and identical terms of renewal,
and since both awards are funded through international student tuition, it makes sense for
the two awards to come together under the name International Leader of Tomorrow
Award.
International Leader of Tomorrow Award: Awards ranging in value from $14,000 to
$34,000 each are offered to outstanding international students who would otherwise be
financially unable to pursue post secondary education. The value of each award will
depend on the applicant's financial circumstances. The awards are made to students
entering the University directly from secondary school or transferring from another post
secondary institution to an undergraduate program of study. In addition to academic
merit, consideration is given to qualities such as leadership skills, involvement in student
affairs or contribution to community service, to recognized achievement in fields of
endeavor such as performing arts, athletics, debating or creative writing, and to
achievement on external math or science competitions or examinations such as the
International Chemistry and Physics Olympiads. Consideration is restricted to students
nominated by the educational institution they are attending. The range for this award will
be reviewed and adjusted annually to reflect any changes in international student tuition
and cost of living. The awards will be renewed for up to three additional years of
undergraduate study or to degree completion, whichever is less, provided the recipient
stands in the top quartile of his or her program of study and maintains his/her status on a
student authorization to study in Canada. Award winners will have their situations
reviewed annually regarding both academic progress and financial need to determine the
amount of the award in subsequent years for which they are eligible.
How changed: the range has been changed from $12,000-$20,000 to $14,000-$34,000.
This reflects both recent and forecasted increases in international tuition fees. Criteria
additional to academic merit have been more clearly delineated, and there is a clear
indication that the value of the award is subject to change annually following a review of
the award winner's academic progress and financial situation.
