Remarks from the Chair
President Ono said that this was a great beginning for this academic year, with 15000 new
students and 64000 in total. He noted in particular the recent opportunity to welcome UBC's
new students at Imagine in Vancouver, and Create in the Okanagan.
The President advised Senate that he had represented UBC at the Times Higher Education (THE)
summit in London.
In government relations, the President noted the change in Provincial government since the
Senate last met. He advised that he has already met with the Premier and his deputy, and the

Minister of Advanced Education has already visited UBC.   Federally, Dr Ono noted having just
returned from Ottawa as we lead up to the next budget. He committed UBC to working
intensively with the provincial and federal governments with respect to letters of intent for
research superclusters. Dr Ono advised that 13 of the 50 submitted proposals involved UBC in
some way, in particular data science as a platform. Federally the most significant government
interaction for UBC is in seeing the implementation of the Naylor report's recommendations for
funding of fundamental scholarship and research. Dr Ono noted that he, the President of the
University of Toronto, and the Principal of McGill had published an op-ed that strongly
emphasized the importance of the Naylor report for research institutions, especially at a time
where tricouncil grant proposal success rates were at a historical low. With respect to other
recommendations we are open to working with government but our priority must be increasing
funding for principal investigators.   Thirdly, UBC has been shown as an exemplar for diversity
with Canada Research Chairs. Next there is a recognition that there should be an emphasis on
new scholars and supporting them. This is an area of considerable difficulty with only a 7%
success rate. Dr Ono also looking at career re-entry support for those faculty who take time to
raise a family.
Locally, Dr Ono reminded Senate that UBC was in a significant phase of the strategic planning
process; he advised that he had asked Professor Andrew Szeri (Provost and Vice-President,
Academic) and Professor Gail Murphy (Vice-President, Research) to work closely with with
Professor Cynthia Mathieson (Provost and Vice-Principal Academic on the Okanagan campus),
as we move into the next phase.
In the spring of last year, we outlined a set of draft priorities based on the contributions of
several thousand members of our communities and formed them into a framework. Over the
summer, we engaged with the deans. This framework will be based on our core mandate of
teaching and research. Once the strategic plan is approved, it will serve as a framework for
annual plans and those priorities will be looked at carefully by Government and others.
The emerging framework is built around the University's core mandate of learning and research,
with the draft priorities represented either as areas for transformational focus or as underpinning
commitments for which we are accountable. The framework recognizes the interplay between
community engagement and global perspective, as well as the foundational importance of our
people and place, both of which we believe are defining features of UBC. We have also
developed a draft vision statement that creates a compelling direction for the University and that
connects the priorities that have emerged through consultation
Dr Ono noted that he looked forward to meeting with heads/directors, deans, the Executive and
the Steering Committee next week to get their feedback on the emerging shape of the plan
Dr Ono opined that there was an ambition schedule to wrap up the drafting by the end of this
calendar year.
There will be discussions with Board and Senate members and these are key junctures with the
intent to bring the final plan to the Board in February.

Senator Singh asked what specific involvement was wanted by the President by the Senate in the
plan.
Dr Ono replied that the draft plan will be brought to the Senate for direct feedback and
that approval would be needed for key aspects. Secondly working groups will be
established for the working areas and action steps. There will also be implementation
plans below the high level plan.
Dr Loewen noted the Canada 150 chairs and asked the Presidents views on the process and the
expected outcome.
Dr Ono replied that the universities did not have a lot of time nor complete freedom
around processes. Dr Ono said that he would like to see a high level of involvement from
departments as we move forward. Extraordinary individuals were found as part of this
program and we are waiting to see how those proposals fair. If these individuals are to be
successful we need to make sure that there are ways to introduce them into their
departmental homes. For various reasons of confidentiality and procedures that hasn't
been possible to date across Canada.

Award by the Faculty Women's Club.
Senator Sapollnik asked what the criteria was for the Thunderbird awards, noting that
"outstanding" was the only criterion specified.

replied that this was to give flexibility to balance academic and athletic excellence.

MEMORIAL MINUTE FOR DR ANTAL KOZAK
Antal (Tony) Kozak was born in Tiszapuspoki, Hungary in 1936, and came to UBC as a student
in the Sopron Division of the Faculty of Forestry in 1957. Dr. Kozak served as a Professor,
Associate Dean, and Professor Emeritus in the Faculty of Forestry for over 50 years. He served
two terms as a member of Senate, from 1981-1984, and from 1987-1990.
The Sopron Division of the Faculty of Forestry consisted of a group of 200 students and 14
faculty members from the Sopron University of Forestry, based in Sopron, Hungary. These
students and faculty members fled Hungary after the repression of the 1956 revolution against
Soviet occupation. After crossing the border into Austria, the Dean of the Sopron University
wrote to over twenty countries, seeking a temporary home for the displaced school. Ultimately,
the Faculty of Forestry at UBC agreed to 'adopt' the Sopron University of Forestry. UBC offered
to guarantee its maintenance for five years to permit its current students to graduate, and gave
assurances that the students could continue to receive their education in Hungarian.
After completing his Bachelor of Science in Forestry, Dr. Kozak went on to complete a Masters
and Ph.D. in Forestry, both at UBC. A dedicated teacher and scholar, Dr. Kozak's research
focused on the measurement of forest volumes. In 1992, Dr. Kozak was awarded a University
Teaching Prize (the predecessor to the Killam Teaching Prizes). His nomination for the award
read, in part:

Students at the University are keenly aware that some very special professors touch their
lives in a personal way through their teaching and it is these teachers they remember all
their days. Professor Kozak is recognized for many years of first class teaching in which
he combines a thorough knowledge of subject matter with careful, painstaking
explanations to guide even the most callous student through the oft-misunderstood areas
of statistical theory and application. With an informal, infectious lecture style Professor
Kozak stimulates enthusiastic class interaction.
Dr. Kozak returned to Hungary in 1993 as a visiting professor at the University of Forestry and
Wood Science in Sopron.
In 2002, the Tony Kozak Scholarship in Forest Measurement was endowed in honour of Dr.
Kozak's contributions to the field of forest measurement and biometrics.
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer their
condolences and thanks.
