Remarks from the Chair
GENERAL REMARKS
Dr Ono advised the Senate that he had just returned from Hong Kong and that early in the New
Year he will be able to announce the largest gift ever from Hong Kong and one of the largest in
UBC history.
On November 27th, we launched the Blue and Gold campaign to raise $100M over 3 years for
student support. Already, we have had several maj or gifts towards the campaign from Hong
Kong and our Chancellor, Lindsay Gordon, has generously endowed a new scholarship to
support an Indigenous student.
Dr Ono noted that this was the 50th anniversary of the Order of Canada. In celebration, an event
was held with several recipients of the Order and we hoped for this to become a regular
occurrence.
The President announced that Margo Seltzer is joining UBC as Canada Research Chair in
Computer Systems. Dr Ono described this as the first of what we think will be transformational
hires to UBC and thanked Dean Peacock for securing the Cheriton gift that made this recruitment
possible.
Dean Peacock replied it was a team effort and he was very pleased that one of the world's
best computer scientists would be joining UBC.
Dr Ono advised that many members of the campus community have contributed their views on
freedom of expression. We will be posting all those responses on the website and we look
forward to a healthy debate on this vital issue. Most of the working group members who
produced the first draft will be staying on to help the document evolve further. We hope that in
late winter/early spring they will release a revised statement for review.
STRATEGIC PLANNING UPDATE

 UBC
THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
w
Dr Ono noted that we were now at the penultimate stage of the planning process. We are
currently in the process of reviewing what we heard during consultations. In parallel, the
working groups and the executive have been working to combine some strategies to reflect the
inherent connections shared. The resulting 20 strategies are being developed, and consultation
will continue into early January 2018 with a final plan presented to the full Board and Senates
for endorsement once completed.
Academic Policy Committee
The Chair of the Senate Academic Policy Committee, Dr Paul Harrison, presented. Dr Ono noted
that Dr Harrison was retiring as Associate Dean of Science after nearly 20 years, and the Senate
offered a round of applause in thanks.
EXCEPTION TO POLICY V-125 FOR THE CONGRESS OF THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL
SCIENCES IN 2019 SUMMER
Paul Harrison }        That, Policy V-125 notwithstanding, Senate direct
Philip Loewen the Registrar to modify the academic year for the
2019 Summer Session as set out in the attached
report.
Dr Harrison noted that one a decade UBC got to host a large conference: the Congress of the
Humanities and Social Sciences. This last happened in 2008. The Congress brings over 8000
attendees from dozens of academic associations together and it takes up all of the classrooms on
campus. As a result, a one-week break in the summer session was proposed.
Approved

discussed may compromise the relationship of the
University with them or its relationship with its
stakeholders;

proceedings; and

AD-HOC COMMITTEE ON DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Michael Pratt Diversity and Inclusion;
That the Senate Nominating Committee be
directed to recommend the membership and

Senate.
Senator Gattinger outlined the students' and the Agenda Committee's rationale for the proposal
and asked Senator Hamid to speak further on the matter.
Senator Haffey asked why the plan was to establish and an ad hoc committee rather than
assigning this to a standing committee to consider.
Ms Hamid said that they had seen similar recommendations considered before but that
due to volume of work at the other committees, they wanted a group that could make this
their first priority. Also, such a group would require participation from a lot of people
outside of Senate and their inclusion was easier on an ad hoc committee.
Senator Lam asked if they had any idea for composition of the committee.
Senator Gattinger said that they would like to see student, faculty, alumni, and staff
members, but that this would be up to the Nominating Committee.
Senator Thorne said that this initiative was similar to previous efforts and she appreciated the
fluid nature that an ad hoc committee would bring.
Senator Tees urged those interested to get in touch with the Nominating Committee, noting that
previous ad hoc committees were successful due to enthusiasm from both with and outside the
Senate.
Senator Doering expressed a concern at the March report deadline noting that this would be the
last meeting for the 2019-2020 student members of Senate.
AMENDMENT
Kevin Doering }        That the final report of the Ad-hoc Committee be
Ian Sapollnik due in January 2020 in place of March 2020.
Amendment
Approved
Dr Ono noted that there have been several changes since President Toope's last work on this file,
and that this subject area appears in our strategic planning work. He also advised that moving
forward he would be directly involved in the matter in addition to the vice-presidents. He said
that alignment between his group and this group would be important for its success.

Senator Forwell spoke in favour of the motion. She urged synergy with the President's task
force.
Senator Thachuk expressed a concern with diversity being included in the name. He suggested
something broader.
Senator Kindler suggested amending the direction to the Nominating Committee to also
recommend changes to the name.
Dr Tees suggested that Senators email the Nominating Committee with any suggestions for
changes, terms of reference, and membership ideas.

NEW AND REVISED AWARDS
See Appendix A: Awards Report
Lawrence Burr }        That Senate accept the awards as listed and
Tariq Ahmed forward them to the Board of Governors for
approval; and that letters of thanks be sent to the
donors.
Dr Harrison noted that the Go Global awards were limited to domestic students, he asked if there
were comparable awards for international students.
Dr Burr confirmed that there were.
Senator Haffey noted that the intent of the Grant/Vignale Award in Fine Arts and Business
award was unclear. Based on the name, it was for Fine Arts students in Master of Management
Dual Degree programs, but based on the description it could be for any Master of Management
Dual Degree student with a preference for those in Film Studies.
Dr Burr suggested that they could confirm the intent with the donor and sent a correction
to the Senate via email if required.

FACULTY GOVERNANCE RENEWAL
Dermot Kelleher }        That, pursuant to Sections 40 (a) and (c) and
Lynn Stothers Section 41 of the University Act, Senate approve
the attached rules for the government, direction
and management of the Faculty of Medicine and
its affairs and business, including the terms of

Committee, as set out in the attached proposal.
Dean Kelleher outlined the impetus for the change.
Senate welcomed to Dr Deborah Money, Executive Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, who
went over the background of the proposal
By general consent, the proposal was amended to clarify that the powers being delegated
to the Executive Committee were those granted to the Faculty under Section 40 of the
University Act.
Dr Shepherd noted that the College of Physicians and Doctors ofBC was being removed from
the Faculty Executive.
Dr Money said that in discussion with them, we have found other ways of having that
relationship work.
Senator Sapollnik asked if this should be referred to a committee.
The Acting Secretary, Mr Eaton, replied that the Faculty had the ability to directly
propose matters relating to its internal governance structure directly to the Senate.
Dr Tees asked how other medical schools organized themselves.

Dr Money replied that there was great diversity amongst medical schools. This was
leaner, for instance, than the structure for the University of Toronto.
Dean Kelleher said that before becoming dean here he reviewed Toronto's structure,
which was still complex, was once even more so.
Senator Harrison noted that in addition to medical education, the Faculty also taught science
students. He asked where in the Faculty's structure that was represented.
Dr Money advised that this went through he non-MD committee that reported to the
Faculty Executive.
Dean Averill asked about the reporting line to the Board of Governors.
Dr Money explained that this was for parallelism in reporting to the Senate for academic
matters.
Dr Matsui asked how the new structure would improve concerns around clarity.
Dean Kelleher said that there was lack of clarity around committee terms of reference.
We also clarified our reporting relationships around regional associate deans. We feel this
strongly addresses accreditation concerns and streamlines our structure to clarify
accountability and decision making.
Senator Haffey thanked the Faculty of Medicine for its work on this proposal noting how
thorough it was.
Senator Ahmed asked for clarity on what was being approved.
The Acting Secretary replied the new faculty governance structure and the powers being
delegated to the Faculty Executive Committee.
