MEMORIAL MINUTE FOR DR MOSES WOLFE STEINBERG
Dr Judith Plessis read the prepared minute on behalf of Dr Sally Thorne, chair of the
Committee.
Judith Plessis l        That Senate approve the Memorial Minute for
Des Verma i        Dr Moses Wolfe Steinberg, that it be entered
into the Minutes of Senate, and that a copy be
sent to the family of the deceased.
Approved.
Dr Moses Wolfe Steinberg
Dr Moses Steinberg was a highly respected educator and Jewish community leader. As
a UBC professor of English literature for 52 years, he instilled a love of literature in
thousands of students, honoured as UBC Master Teacher in 1971 and 1972.
Following completion of a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts at Queen's University,
Dr. Steinberg enrolled in doctoral studies in English Literature at the University of
Toronto. While a doctoral candidate, he was recruited to join UBC's Department of
English as an Assistant Professor. He joined the department in 1946 and completed his
PhD in 1952.
In 1959, Professor Steinberg co-founded Prism, a successful poetry journal currently
published as Prism International. He also founded and directed the Poetry Centre,
bringing to UBC such poets as Dylan Thomas, George Barker, Stephen Spender,
Padraic Colum and Langston Hughes. He was also instrumental in the creation of the
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-3
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
University's Arts One program. In 1956, the centenary of George Bernard Shaw's
birth, Professor Steinberg and Dorothy Somerset founded the Vancouver Shaw
Festival.
A deeply religious man, he was instrumental in the founding of three of Vancouver's
Jewish day schools: Vancouver Talmud Torah Elementary School, Vancouver Hebrew
Academy and Maimonides High School (now King David High School). He was an
active member of the Schara Tzedeck Synagogue, president of the Pacific Region of
Canadian Jewish Congress, and played a leading role in many other Jewish
community institutions and organizations.
Professor Steinberg retired from the University in 1983, but his affiliation with and
service to the University continued for many years. His service to the University
included membership on the Senate (1966-1969 and 1971-1972), the Board of
Governors, the Faculty Association and numerous other committees. In 1977,
Professor Steinberg was honoured with the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal.
In his memory, the Professor Mo Steinberg Memorial Award in English Literature will
be established and awarded to a student who best exemplifies an amalgam of
academic excellence in English literature and the attributes of good citizenship.
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
Lance Rucker l        That the Minutes of the Meeting of 18 May
Thomas Brennan J        2011 be adopted as presented.
Approved.
Remarks from the Chair and Related Questions
The President noted with apologies that his comments would be a little lengthier than
usual given that this was the first meeting of the academic year and there was a lot of
interesting news to share.
Opening with what he characterized as great news, the President noted for Senate that he
had recently seen the results of this year's National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
for UBC, and although he had not yet been able to review them in detail, there were
statistically- significant improvements in almost every category. Professor Toope described
this as very encouraging, as faculty, staff, and students have been working hard to
implement programs to improve the student experience. Similarly, last year UBC saw its
best-ever performance on research grant applications, which the President described as a
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-4
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Remarks from the Chair and Related Questions
symbolic statement that so many colleagues and graduate students are doing worthwhile
research.
In terms of enrolment, Professor Toope stated that UBC is welcoming 7 688 new
undergraduate students at the Vancouver campus, with 5 859 going into first year. This
was a five percent increase over last year with much of the growth coming from
international students. UBC Okanagan has had a 13 percent increase, which means that
the University has met its ambitious enrolment targets in Kelowna despite decreased in
high school graduation rates. The Vancouver campus mean admissions average was over
89 percent, and the Okanagan average was at 82 percent, which is basically unchanged
from the previous year. The President characterized these numbers as both happy and sad;
it is extraordinarily difficult to be admitted to UBC. Now one quarter of UBC's admittees
are admitted on broad-based admission with no change to the required GPAs. Last year
this was one tenth. Professor Toope suggested to Senate that UBC needs to make sure it
has a broad distribution of potential contributions and talents and this will be a challenge
for our admissions process.
The President then noted that UBC welcomed Dr Louise Cowin, formerly of the
University of Toronto, as Vice-President, Students. UBC will be finding successors this
year for Deputy Vice-Chancellor Douglas Owram and Vice-President External, Legal, and
Community Relations Stephen Owen.
With reference to last year's discussions around athletics and its role in the University,
Professor Toope stated that for the first time ever, Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS)
will have a presidential advisory board to actively engage in policy making. The President
expressed his hope that this leads to the significant reforms that UBC believes are
necessary. He went on to say that he was now co-chair of a Canada West (CW)
Committee to explore changes to improve student athlete experiences and promote their
excellence. UBC is making significant progress and may be making dramatic
recommendations to CW and CIS relating to scholarships and type and structure of
competition.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-5
Minutes of 14 September 2011
From the Board of Governors
On teaching and learning, a comprehensive approach on enriched educational experiences
is being developed; the aim is to enhance these experiences, especially for undergraduate
students.
With reference to university rankings, Professor Toope stated that in the latest Shanghai
Jiao Tong rankings UBC's position basically stayed constant, but there was a significant
decrease our score in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking, mainly based on faculty:
student ratios. Professor Toope described this as odd, as UBC's ratio is better than, for
instance, the University of Toronto's, yet they ranked much better than UBC on this
measure. The President mentioned to Senate that UBC's Planning & Institutional
Research office evaluates external ranking systems and has concerns with QS's
methodology, reliability and transparency. He informed Senate of plans to converse with
colleagues around Canada on frustration with data gathering in ranking systems but
suggested that UBC does not want to enter into a public debate on this topic, and should
only consider rankings by looking at a broad cross-section of them.
Finally, the President mentioned that senators would have noticed many changes to
campus over the last few months. He wished to signal the hard work that has been done
by UBC Properties Trust and our own buildings and facilities people, noting that the
University was about to open many new and renovated buildings at the Vancouver
campus plus two new buildings at the Okanagan campus. Many other projects were still
ongoing, including Pharmaceutical Sciences, Comparative Medicine, Earth Systems, and
Commerce.
From the Board of Governors
The President confirmed that the following items approved by the Vancouver Senate were
subsequently approved by the Board of Governors as required under the University Act:

Vice-President Farrar presented.
NEW MEDICINE RESEARCH INSTITUTES
David Farrar l        That Senate establish the Life Sciences Institute
Des Verma J        *w the Faculties of Medicine and Science and;
That Senate establish the Child and Family
Research Institute, the Providence Health Care
Research Institute and the Vancouver Coastal

Medicine.
Approved.
The Provost advised that the details of these proposals are in the memoranda from the
Faculty. Also attached is a document from the Faculty of Medicine that attempts to
outline the definitions for various types of academic units within the Faculty.
Senator Haffey noted that the nine-year period referenced for term appointments should
be corrected to five. The President referred this to the Faculty for correction.
Senator Bredin asked how researchers not incorporated into the new institutes could
participate.
With Senate's consent, guest Dr George Mackie explained that the institutes were
designed to be all-inclusive and ensure that every single investigator at the health
authority sites has a reporting mechanism up through Medicine. Within each
institution there are research clusters and groups that link common interests, and
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-9
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Reports FROM THE PROVOST & VICE-PRESIDENT, ACADEMIC
there are also centres that investigators are encouraged to join. On campus, the
Life Sciences Institute engages a variety of individuals but there are people with
complementary interests in other departments and they interact on an investigator
to investigator basis.
Senator Bredin asked about interdisciplinary collaboration between different sites.
Dr Mackie replied that this facilitation happened on an individual-to-individual
basis. One good area for this would be adult stem cells. The institute does not get
in the way but provides and administrative structure where investigators have
freedom.
CHANGE IN NAME FROM THE JAMES HOGG ICAPTURE CENTRE TO THE UBC JAMES
HOGG RESEARCH CENTRE

 Vancouver Senate 11/12-10
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Reports FROM THE PROVOST & VICE-PRESIDENT, ACADEMIC
STUDENT EVALUATION OF TEACHING REPORT TO SENATE
The Provost presented the annual reports on Student Evaluation of Teaching for the past
two years. He mentioned that it was a pleasure to see how well the performance of our
faculty is rated by students and the stability of that data.
Senator Baimbridge said the Teaching and Learning Committee would look at this in
more detail, but voiced a concern on decline in response rates as students are inundated
with requests. This issue was not reflected in this data - in some programs fewer than
40% of students respond.
The Provost agreed that this was a concern but there were many indications that
the data was reliable and stable.
With Senate's consent, Vice-Provost Kindler spoke to this item. She stated that the
University has seen some decline in responses from some faculties. The good news is that
the change in response rate does not seem to influence the evaluations. It is still a concern
on the level of student engagement in the process. UBC is on par with comparable
institutions for its response rate. The teaching evaluation committee has had discussions
on this phenomenon and on the various kinds of incentives to responses and the
consensus is that there would not be support for punitive measures to ensure responses,
but there was agreement that as faculty members consent to more results being released,
more students would become more active in the evaluation system. For Senate's
information she mentioned that new for this year was the introduction of an improved
interface for faculty members to consent to the release of their evaluation data.
Senator Brennan said that the aggregation of this report at the university level shows that
the overall level of response is quite high but some data must be lost in that; future
reports could be more useful if the data could be broken down to at least the faculty level.
The Provost replied that the faculty data was given to the faculties, but for
instructor data this requires their permission. This individual data is used for many
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-11
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Reports FROM THE PROVOST & VICE-PRESIDENT, ACADEMIC
purposes including promotion and tenure but in terms of reporting back to Senate
the commitment was to present the University-level results.
Dr Kindler agreed noting that due to the Privacy Act, data on individual
instructors was released with their consent; and trends show that more and more
faculty members are consenting.
Senator Bredin asked if the response rate related to the relevance of the questions to their
courses and asked when the questions were last reviewed.
The Provost replied that the questions were only developed a few years ago, and
the University-wide questions were only one part of the set asked of students in a
given class. They are consistent with other North American universities. The tool
allows for faculty and course specific questions.
Dr Kindler reiterated the value of a modular approach to the questions. This
allows faculties to consider the curriculum and pedagogy used and faculty can use
their own data as needed.
In response to a question from Senator Rasmussen asking if there were variations between
UBC's data and those of other universities, Dr Kindler agreed to look into it to the extent
that the data was available.
Senator Heisler encouraged as many faculty members as possible to be incentivized to
release their data; suggesting that UBC could internally have a much better system than
what must students use now: ratemyprofessor.com.
Senator Goold said he found being surveyed very useful. One thing that struck him was
there not being a measure of student effort in the course for comparison, especially with
the third question.
Dr Kindler replied that this was discussed. In the end, because the intention was to
give as much room as possible for faculties, the survey leaves the university-wide
questions as minimal as possible. The concern was that overall the survey cannot
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 -12
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Reports FROM THE PROVOST & VICE-PRESIDENT, ACADEMIC
be too long. The intention was to encourage faculty members to administer their
own surveys as a part of concurrent evaluation. There is evidence that timing
student feedback midstream contributes to both student satisfaction and learning
outcomes. Instructor-driven midterm feedback is thus encouraged.
Dr Farrar noted that some tools do allow for unique identifiers to compare data but that
UBC's system is not that sophisticated.
Dr Anstee said he was puzzled by the issues around publicizing comments. He understood
that the students did not want this published but he found it much more interesting than
the numbers.
Dr Kindler reminded Senate that the evaluation system was contentious. In the end
it was felt that providing the data was a good beginning. There was nothing
preventing faculty members from putting comments on their website but comments
are not released to academic administrators or used in reporting.
Senator O'Donoghue asked if this was the extent of the data available.
Dr Kindler said that this was just the subset of the total data that was required to
be presented to Senate; and that faculties receive much more data.
The Provost added that a number of projects have been undertaken to analyze all
the data to find interesting trends.
UBC AS A LIVING LAB AND AGENT OF CHANGE FOR SUSTAINABILITY
The Provost introduced Dr John Robinson, Executive Director UBC Sustainability
Initiative (USI) whose research is at the intersection of climate change and sustainability.
Dr Robinson has lead the development of the Centre for Integrated Research in
Sustainability (CIRS) building's creation. This project is a research activity but also our
operations and our curriculum to bring everything together under the umbrella of UBC as
a living laboratory.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-13
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Reports FROM THE PROVOST & VICE-PRESIDENT, ACADEMIC
Dr Robinson expressed his appreciation to UBC, noting that if CIRS was not moved to
UBC it likely would not have been built. He then presented on the USI, with a focus on
two areas: UBC as a living lab, and UBC as an agent of change.
Campus as a Living Lab
Dr Robinson explained that USI's goal is to treat the whole campus as an opportunity for
both teaching and research but also making operational decisions. Post-Secondary
institutions are uniquely suited to serve the role as a test-bed given our single occupancy,
owned utilities, public nature, and teaching and research core mission. We can thus
develop integrated campus-base solutions.
UBC's climate change goals are the most ambitious of any Shanghai-rated institution.
Very few other institutions can make this claim. Our targets are twice the provincial
targets and thus the challenge is large for UBC: We aim to eliminate fossil fuel usage and
not have any new transmission lines going to campus despite a 35% planned increase in
building floor space.
Dr Robinson stated that the USI office has created a roadmap on how to achieve its goals,
with a 2015 target of a 33 percent reduction in greenhouse gases, a 2020 target of a 66
percent reduction, and a final goal for 2050 of a 100 percent reduction He suggested that
for UBC to achieve its final target, we will have to build smart energy systems.
The presenter went on to say that for UBC to succeed at this initiative we will also need to
continue to change a largely commuter campus to a community so as to minimized travel
times. This is especially important as the population of University Town is expected to be
30000 by 2025.
Agent of Change
Dr Robinson explained that Agent of Change is about reaching out to partners outside of
campus. We're forming sustainability partnerships with National Research Council of
Canada, the City of Vancouver, BC Hydro, the University Neighbourhoods Association,
and Honeywell.  Our teaching and learning office has a mandate to transform curriculum
across campus and we have six fellows who come to work with us on course development
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 -14
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Reports FROM THE PROVOST & VICE-PRESIDENT, ACADEMIC
and creating a Sustainability Learning Attributes document. Our goal is to create
pathways to allow for almost every student at UBC to do coursework up to a minor in
sustainability. Dr Robinson then emphasized that a large part of this initiatives success
will not be from the USI itself but rather from the mobilization and engagement of the
300 faculty already teaching in sustainability areas and many others who may be
interested in joining them.
A student senator asked if the carbon footprint on construction of CIRS was included in
our targets.
Dr Robinson replied that the construction of CIRS was included, but CIRS
sequesters around 600 tonnes of carbon which is 5 tonnes more than it took to
build it.  On the operational side, next door EOS is very inefficient; we're making
them more efficient, so that EOS plus CIRS are net positive for energy combined.
Senator Windsor-Liscombe noted that many people in the arts were interested in
ecological issues. How do we bring people together?
Dr Robinson agreed that the humanities are the underrepresented fields, but
mentioned that that his son completed a BFA at UBC and for him this topic was a
passion. He has a PhD student who is a professional pianist whose dissertation will
be on art, culture and sustainability and who has commissioned art on underlying
sustainability issues. Open questions are do philosophical arguments on
sustainability resonate artistically? Can we have creative connectivity between
artists and sustainability researchers? Sustainability has some constructive
ambiguity around it.
Dr Dunford opined that UBC has signed agreements with some companies to the
exclusion of others.
Dr Robinson did not agree with this contention, noting that UBC will always deal
with many different companies and being locked in has caused us problems. There
will always be research and procurement linkages and are not unduly controlled.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 -15
Minutes of 14 September 2011
Adjournment
Our MOUs are strategic alliances but we they make it clear that they do not create
exclusive rights. We're not preventing work with non-allied companies though.
Senator Harrison asked if UBC's living lab benefits will stop us from being an effective
agent of change, given that it may be difficult to replicate things off campus due to more
complicated environments.
Dr Robinson agreed with this concern, noting that this was a research area being
explored - how do we export transformative change to more complicated
environments like downtown Vancouver.
Senator Heisler thanked Dr Robinson on behalf of the student senators and the AMS,
especially for work on the sustainability minor.
The President thanked also thanks Dr Robinson on behalf of the Senate for showing
exemplary leadership at UBC and beyond
Adjournment
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:39 p.m. The President
invited members of Senate and guests to a reception being held at the Brock Hall
Welcome Centre. The next regular meeting of the Senate is scheduled to take place
Wednesday, 19 October 2011.
