Business Arising From the Minutes
REPORT ON ENROLMENT 2001/02 (P. 12815)
Referring to the Acting Registrar's November 2001 report on enrolment statistics, Dr.
Williams remarked that male enrolment continued to decline at a disturbing rate. He
noted that male students made up 43% of overall enrolment, and only 40% of master's-
level enrolment. Male enrolment at the Ph.D. level continued to drop in the order of two
percent each year. He asked whether Faculties in which males made up 30% or less of
enrolment, such as Agricultural Sciences and Education, might consider sponsoring
initiatives to foster equality of opportunity.
Remarks from the Chair and Related Questions
TRIP TO ASIA
A UBC delegation had recently made a brief visit to Korea and Hong Kong. In Seoul, the
group was pleased to receive a $1.25 million donation in support of the Young Bin Min
Chair in Korean Literature and Literary Translation. This marked the first time such a
chair had been awarded

Admissions Committee
to a North American university. Meetings were held with officials from Korea University
and Seoul National University, as well as with the Korea Foundation about the possibility
of establishing a UBC chair in Korean legal studies. Approximately 75 alumni attended an
event held in their honour.
In Hong Kong, members of the group met with UBC students on exchange at Hong Kong
University, as well as Hong Kong University students who had previously participated in
exchange programs at UBC. Dr. Lloyd Axworthy spoke at an event designed to introduce
the Liu Centre for the Study of Global Issues to leaders in the Hong Kong community.
The delegation was pleased to secure a gift toward the establishment of a new Faculty of
Graduate Studies Chair in transportation and global development.
FEDERAL BUDGET ANNOUNCEMENT
The President acknowledged that the federal government had recently been faced with
significant demands for resources related to security measures. The government had
nonetheless seen fit to begin funding the indirect costs of research in the initial amount of
$200 million. The President described this announcement as demonstrating a serious
commitment to university research. The budget also included increases to the budgets of
the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, the Social Sciences & Humanities Research
Council, and the Natural Sciences & Engineering Research Council. The federal
government aimed toward Canada's ranking in the top five countries with regard to
funding for research and development.
Admissions Committee
Dr. Lyster presented the reports, as Chair of the Committee.
AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES: BROADER BASED ADMISSION FOR THE BACHELOR OF

SYSTEMS
The following report had been circulated.
Present Calendar Entry (page 99, column 2)
ADMISSION
Students can apply to the GRS program after completing 24 credits of first year university-
level courses. To be considered, students are required to have a minimum academic standing
of at least 70% (or 2.80 on a 4-point scale). Achievement of this minimum, however, does not
guarantee admission if the number of applicants exceeds the number of places available.
Students are advised to complete first year requirements as listed in Degree Requirements for
the Bachelor of Science in Global Resource Systems, below.
Proposed Calendar Entry: (changes in bold)
ADMISSION
Students can apply to the GRS program after completing 24 credits of first year university-
level courses. To be considered, students are required to have a minimum academic standing
of at least 70% (or 2.80 on a 4-point scale). Achievement of this minimum, however, does not
guarantee admission. Admission is limited by the Faculty's capability to accommodate
students in this global program. Admission is based on grades, preparation, experiences, and
commitment to a global education. When applying to GRS, students must submit a letter of
intent (500 words or less) conforming to guidelines specified on the GRS website
(www.agsci.ubc.ca/main/grs/apply.htm). The letter of intent is to be submitted to the office of
Enrolment Services at the time of application.
Students are advised to complete first year requirements as listed in Degree Requirements for
the Bachelor of Science in Global Resource Systems, below.
Rationale:
Students who have achieved the highest level of success in the GRS program have shown a
number of characteristics in addition to being of high academic standing. These include:
A commitment to a global education. This includes a willingness to learn other languages and
understand people from other cultures.
A clear sense of direction. This includes knowing what their learning objectives are and being
ready to take charge of their education. The GRS program allows students (together with their
faculty advisor) to customize their program based on their background and learning
objectives.
Experiences to build on. These include extracurricular, work and international experience. All
students in the GRS program undertake a period of learning abroad. Those with experience to
draw on get the most out of this opportunity.
Moving to broader based admission will allow an assessment of these characteristics in
addition to academic standing. It will allow the Faculty to select students who are most

likely to succeed in the GRS program, who will get the most out of the GRS program, and
have the most to contribute to it.
Effective Date: January 3, 2002
Dr. Lyster l        That Senate approve the admissions changes to
Dean Quayle J        the Bachelor of Science in Global Resource
Systems.

COMMERCE & BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION: UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSIONS
REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS FROM ANOTHER FACULTY
The following report had been circulated.
Present Calendar Entry page 161, column B & C
Admission from Another Faculty
Students who have completed a first-year university program of at least 27 credits may apply
for admission to the Commerce program. Applicants must have completed ENGL 112 plus
one of ENGL 110,111, 120, 121 (Arts One or a minimum of 16 credits of the Foundations
program is acceptable), with a minimum grade of 60% for each of the two required English
courses; ECON 101 and 102 (or ECON 100), MATH 104 or 184 and MATH 105 (MATH
100 and 101, 102, 103, or 102 and 121 are acceptable alternatives); and 12 credits of
electives.
Electives must not include any business, studio or activity courses. Although Statistics courses
will be included in the admission average, they will not count toward the Bachelor of
Commerce. Students are reminded that in planning their program they must comply with the
requirements of the faculty in which they are registered.
Students who have completed a first-year university program, with no failures, but are
deficient in more than one three-credit core course may qualify for consideration in two ways:
1. attend a college and take a second-year Commerce transfer program which may
include the deficient core course(s); or
2. continue to a second year at the University in a program that includes the deficient
core course(s) and further courses in English and economics.
Students who have successfully completed 27 credits of pre-Commerce studies in Winter
Session but who are deficient in one three-credit core course may apply to the Commerce
program.
If accepted, they will be required to successfully complete the course in which they are
deficient by the end of Term 1 of Winter Session. Students who do not make up for their
deficiency may be required to withdraw from the Faculty.

Effective Date: May 1, 2002
Dr. Lyster
Mr. Sheppard
That the admissions changes to the Diploma in
Computer Science be approved.
In response to a query from Dr. MacEntee, Dr. Lyster stated that application fees are
common for programs where broader based admission criteria are considered. Vice
President McBride added that the application fee for the Diploma in Computer Science
would help recover some of the cost of reviewing letters of reference and conducting
applicant interviews.
The motion was
put and carried.

Vice President McBride remarked, and Dr. Berger agreed, that Senate approves more new
courses each year than it deletes.
The motion was
put and carried.
FACULTY OF SCIENCE
Contact Hours and Credits
Dr. Berger reminded members of Senate that the Curriculum Committee employed the
following guideline for assigning credit value to courses: one hour of lecture, three hours
of laboratory, or two hours of tutorial or workshop per week for one term equals one
credit.
Many courses in the Faculty of Science did not conform to the guideline and therefore
many of the proposed changes involved recrediting of courses.
Dr. Berger l        That Senate approve the course proposals from
Dr. Williams J        the Faculty of Science.
Dr. MacEntee was concerned that students' workload was being increased rather than
decreased. He noted that students would now be permitted to take up to 39 credits
without special permission, whereas the threshold had been previously set at 36 credits.
He asked whether the Faculty of Science would be prepared to decrease the credit
requirements for its programs in order to ensure a reasonable demand on students. Dr.
Berger responded that the Faculty of Science had not increased students' workload, but
instead aimed to credit its courses in a realistic manner, thereby making the problem
visible. Dr. Berger noted that the issue of how many credits should make up each program
had not yet been addressed. Programs in the Faculty of Science required an average of 38
credits per year.
 Vancouver Senate 12838
Minutes of December 12,2001	
Curriculum Committee
Dr. Marshall pointed out that the vector for BIOL 140 should read "[0-2; 0-2]. The
vector for ASTR 102 should read [3-2*-0].
In response to a query from Dean Isaacson, Dr. Berger stated that students in the Faculty
of Science would be required to pay additional tuition fees, since fees were assessed by the
number of credits taken.
The motion was
put and carried.
Science Program Proposals
Dr. Berger l        That Senate approve the program proposals
Dr. Rosengarten J       from the Faculty of Science.
Carried.
FACULTY OF MEDICINE: EXPANSION OF MEDICAL CLASS
The Curriculum Committee had circulated the following report for information.
The following excerpt is from the minutes of the Faculty of Medicine meeting held on
November 8, 2001. The Curriculum Committee would like to draw your attention to this
pending change.
MOTION: Moved, David McLean, SECONDED: Wayne Vogl
Whereas UBC's Faculty of Medicine is committed to assist the province of BC in:
1. Addressing problems of physician supply by educating substantially greater numbers of
physicians to provide clinical care in disciplines and geographic locations defined by
provincial needs analysis.
2. Ensuring that BC's participation in the national health research endeavor is
substantially expanded.
3. Sustaining and strengthening the provincial health care system through education,
research, and service contributions by faculty members.
That the Faculty approve an expansion of the medical class size incorporating the
development of a distributed learning model of medical education, to be implemented in
collaboration and partnership with other universities, hospitals and Regional Health
Authorities in British Columbia.
 Vancouver Senate 12839
Minutes of December 12,2001	
Nominating Committee
This approval is subject to the following:
a) that the accreditation standards of LCME/CACMS will be met, evaluation procedures
will be common to all UBC undergraduate medical students, and the course of studies
will be directed toward attainment of a UBC MD degree.
b) that the financial, faculty, staff, and infrastructure resources be present in a timely
way, and that they be of sufficient magnitude to support the medical class expansion
and to enhance the quality of the faculty's research and educational programs.
c) that the complement of PGY-1 Residency positions consistently exceed the expanded
number of graduates.
d) that the UCFA and all clinical faculty have appropriate input into the planning of the
development of the expansion of the medical school and that appropriate funding is
available to recognize the contributions of clinical faculty.
e) that clinical faculty are recognized and rewarded according to the provisions of the
document entitled "Mutual Responsibilities and Obligations for Clinical Faculty and
Faculty of Medicine" and the standardized appointment/offer letter of October 1,
2001.
CARRIED.
In response to a query from Dr. Lyster, both Dean Cairns and Ms. Quinlan expressed
confidence that library needs related to the expansion were being considered. Vice
President McBride confirmed that library resources occupied a specific line in the budget
proposal before the provincial government.
In response to a query from Dr. MacEntee, Dean Cairns agreed that the University had a
legacy of expanding programs without adequate resources, and that this expansion would
not proceed without appropriate levels of funding. He added that safeguards had been
added to ensure that adequate funding was both implemented and maintained.
Nominating Committee
MEMBERSHIP OF THE ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE
Dr. Williams reported that the Admissions Committee was to unfortunately lose its Chair,
Dr. Donald Lyster, when he retired on December 31, 2001. The Admissions Committee

Reports from the Vice President, Academic and Provost
UBC AT ROBSON SQUARE
Vice President McBride stated that there had been an impressive turnout for the opening
of UBC at Robson Square on November 30. He encouraged members of Senate to visit
this exciting new space if they had not already done so. He thanked Dr. Stan Hamilton
and Ms. Jane Hutton for their outstanding leadership and hard work. Members of Senate
applauded.
TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
Vice President McBride alluded to recent rumours that the Technical University of British
Columbia (TechBC) would be closed. Although that university's status was still uncertain,
Vice President McBride confirmed that the provincial government had asked UBC to
provide a letter of intent to accept approximately 400 undergraduate and 35 graduate
students currently enrolled at TechBC.
PROVINCIAL HEALTH BOARD REPRESENTATION
Vice President McBride stated that UBC was without representation on any health board
in the Province, following the recent dissolution of such boards. The provincial
government had assured UBC representation once the boards were reconstituted.
 Vancouver Senate 12841
Minutes of December 12,2001	
Report from the Acting Registrar
HAROLD AND DORRIE MERILEES CHAIR FOR THE STUDY OF DEMOCRACY
Vice President McBride had circulated a proposal for the establishment of a Chair to be
named in honour of Harold and Dorrie Merilees for their contributions to politics and
democracy, particularly in British Columbia. The Chair was made possible by endowment
funding from Stephen Jarislowsky and UBC. The Chair was to reside in the Department
of Political Science, alongside the proposed Centre for Democratic Institutions.
Vice President McBride    l        That Senate approve the establishment of the
Dr. Tees i       Harold and Dorrie Merilees Chair for the
Study of Democracy.
In response to a query from Dr. Lalli, Vice President McBride stated that $1.25 million
had been endowed by the donor in support of this Chair. UBC had matched the donation
for a total endowment of $2.5 million.
The motion was
put and carried.
UNIVERSITY KILLAM PROFESSORS
Vice President McBride was pleased to announce that the Board of Governors had
recently conferred the designation of University Killam Professor upon Dr. Peter W.
Hochachka and Dr. William H. New.
The designation is conferred to recognize exceptional members of faculty who have
distinguished themselves as scholars in research and/or teaching.
Report from the Acting Registrar
ACADEMIC YEAR 2002-2003
Dr. Holm circulated for information a draft of the 2002-2003 Academic Year, along with
term and examination dates to 2008. He remarked that Term 2 of the 2001-2002
Academic Year was
 Vancouver Senate 12842
Minutes of December 12,2001	
Other Business
to begin on a Thursday, and that this start date did not coincide with public school
holiday schedules. The early start had been necessary in order to accommodate, among
other things, 13-day examination schedules in December and April. With the use of new
and improved examination scheduling software and the availability of the Student
Recreation Centre for examinations, it would be possible to schedule future examination
periods to conclude in 11 days. Such early starts in January would therefore become
unnecessary.
Other Business
MANDATORY RETIREMENT AT AGE 65
Mr. Sheppard l        That, at its May 2002 meeting, Senate debate
Mr. Podersky-Cannon      i        the academic implications of mandatory
retirement at age 65;
and
that the Nominating Committee be authorized
to report back to the February 2002 meeting of
Senate for approval of terms of reference and
membership of a committee to inform the
debate.
Mr. Sheppard circulated an excerpt from the Minutes of Senate of February 13, 1963, in
which the Senate Executive Committee had recommended that the faculty retirement age
remain at 65, and that individual faculty members could be reappointed at the pleasure of
the University. He reported that mandatory retirement had been introduced in 1939, and
then relaxed in 1947 due to World War II. Due to changing demographics, Australia and
New Zealand had both abolished mandatory retirement. Mr. Sheppard pointed out that
Canada was facing similar demographic challenges, and that mandatory retirement was
an issue of national importance.
The motion was
put and carried.
