Tributes Committee
Vol. 2016/17 16/17 - 05 - 1
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-2
Minutes of 18 January 2017
The Chair of the Senate Tributes Committee, Dr Sally Throne, presented.
President Emeritus Dr. David Strangway, OC
President Emeritus Dr. David Strangway was born in Simcoe, Ontario, in 1934. He moved with
his missionary parents to Angola at a young age, only returning to Canada aged 18 to begin
studying at the University of Toronto in 1952. Having earned his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in
Physics by 1960, Dr. Strangway spent the next period of his life teaching at the University of
Colorado and MIT, before being invited to join NASA in 1970 as the Chief of their Geophysics
and Physics Branch at the Johnson Spacecraft Centre in Houston, Texas. While at NASA, Dr.
Strangway was responsible for the geophysical aspects of the Apollo moon missions, including
experiment selection and attendant astronaut training, site selection and real-time mission
support.
Returning to the University of Toronto in 1973, he served variously as Chair of the Geology
Department, Academic Vice-President and Provost, and Acting President from 1983-1984.
On November 1st 1985, Dr. Strangway became the 10th President of UBC, a position he held for
12 years until 1997. During this period he oversaw a major campus building program - with
construction projects estimated to total over $900 million and including buildings such as the
First Nations House of Learning, the Chan Centre and the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery.
In addition, UBC's endowment grew from under $100 million to over $500 million over the
course of Dr. Strangway's tenure as President. This growth has continued, with the endowment
standing at around $1.3 billion today, a fact many attribute to Dr Strangway's hugely innovative
and successful fundraising efforts. As a result of these and other activities at UBC, including
driving an increased focus on quality research, Dr Strangway is credited with extending the
university's national and international reputation, allowing the university to develop into the
world-renowned institution it is today.
In 1998 the Canadian government appointed Dr. Strangway as the President and CEO of the
Canada Foundation for Innovation, whose role was to strengthen research and technology
capabilities of Canadian universities, colleges and research hospitals. By the time Dr. Strangway
stepped down in 2004, the Foundation had invested more than $2.7 billion into Canadian
institutions, helping to stem the flow of Canadian researchers to other countries.
Alongside his role at the Canada Foundation for Innovation, Dr. Strangway founded Quest
University Canada in Squamish, BC, also serving as its President and Chancellor. The private
non-profit liberal arts and sciences university - the first of its kind in Canada - was incorporated
in 1998, and graduated its first class of students in 2011.
Dr. Strangway was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1996, and the following year he
received the Republic of Korea's First Order of Civil Merit, the first non-Korean to receive the
honour. He was also named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, was awarded the Queen's
Silver, Gold and Diamond Jubilee medals, and was a recipient of the NASA medal for
Exceptional Scientific Achievement.
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-3
Minutes of 18 January 2017
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer their sincere
condolences and heartfelt thanks.
Dr. John M. Gosline
The first professor to bring biomechanics research to UBC, Dr. John M. Gosline joined
Department of Zoology in 1973 after obtaining his BA Hons from UC Berkeley, a PhD from
Duke University, and spending three years as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Cambridge University.
Starting his UBC career as an Assistant Professor, Dr. Gosline became a Professor in 1986, and
served on Senate as a representative of the Faculty of Science from 1993 to 1996. His research
focused on the structure and mechanical properties of biological materials across a range of
species, including slugs, spiders and jellyfish, and his work resulted in more than 100
publications as well as several books and patents. Dr. Gosline is best known for his work on
elasticity in structural proteins such as spider silk, and he was interviewed about this topic by the
media as recently as September of this year.
Dr. Gosline received a number of notable awards throughout his career, including the Killiam
Research Prize in 1999 and the Faculty of Science Achievement Award for Service in 2005. In
1985 he became a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and in
1997 he was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
Dr. Gosline retired in 2008 after 35 years at UBC, but remained active as a Professor Emeritus.
The John M. Gosline Biomechanics Fund has been established to continue his work and to foster
and recognize excellence in comparative biomechanics, aiming to establish an annual John M.
Gosline Biomechanics Lecture and to create a John M. Gosline Biomechanics Fellowship.
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer condolences
and thanks.
Dr. Harvey Mitchell
Born in Winnipeg in 1926, Harvey Mitchell began his working life in his family's grocery store
and butcher shop before studying history at the University of Manitoba. Continuing his studies
with a master's degree in history from the University of Minnesota, in 1954 Mitchell and his
wife moved to England, where he earned his Ph.D. at University College London.
From 1956 to 1960 Dr Mitchell divided his time between Canada and the U.K., setting up the
Provincial Archives in St John's Newfoundland, spending a year working for Gage Publishing in
Toronto, and receiving a Nuffield Fellowship in London in 1959.
After a number of years spent teaching at the Universities of Regina and Calgary, Dr. Mitchell
joined the UBC Department of History in 1967, focusing his research on European intellectual
history and studies of Alexis de Tocqueville and Voltaire. Before retiring in 1989, Dr. Mitchell
authored five books and many articles for a wide range of journals, including History of Political
Thought, the Bulletin of the History of Medicine, and the International Journal of law and
Psychiatry.
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-4
Minutes of 18 January 2017
Dr. Mitchell served on Senate as a representative of the Faculty of Arts from 1975-1978, and was
a pioneer of UBC's Arts One program, encouraging students to take an interdisciplinary
approach to important historical, philosophical and literary questions.
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer condolences
and thanks.
Sally Thorne }        That Senate approve the Memorial Minutes for
Philip Loewen Dr. David Strangway, Dr. JohnM. Gosline and
Dr. Harvey Mitchell, that they be entered into the
Minutes of Senate and copies be sent to the family
of the deceased.
Approved
Remarks from the Chair
Dr Ono expressed his regret and apologies to the Senate for the re recent events regarding Dr
John Furlong and the damage done to the University's reputation. In providing background, he
stated that the Department of Athletics has an annual fundraiser for around 1000 persons. Dr
Furlong has an honorary degree from UBC and many of his family members are alumni of the
University. He was invited by UBC Athletics to give an address at a fundraiser to raise money
for UBC Athletics and the Thunderbird varsity teams, and as President he too was invited to give
welcoming remarks. In late fall it became clear to both himself and the Board of Governors that
there was some degree of controversy regarding Dr Furlong and a number of allegations of abuse
directed at him as a teacher at a residential school. After a conversation between UBC Athletics
and the administration the decision was made to rescind the invitation. The rationale for this was
that it was in UBC and Dr Furlong's best interest rescind the invitation to avoid the potential for
an embarrassing situation at the event. Dr Ono agreed to be the keynote speaker in his place.
This occurred shortly before Christmas when many people were not around to participate. The
President advised that he then received over 175 items of correspondence regarding Dr Furlong
as the invitation and its rescinding became a matter of national news. It was clear that this was a
grey situation, and regardless of what decision was made, not everyone would be happy.
Dr Ono advised that this was a painful situation for many, especially considering its relationships
with much important work at UBC,and in particular work on addressing sexual assault. Dr Ono
advised that he read and watched recordings of the statements of the accusers, and legal counsel
gave him a comprehensive idea of what had been reviewed by the legal system. The President
advised that he had reached the conclusion at this time, taking into consideration what had been
decided by the courts, there was no reason to exclude Dr Furlong from the event. Dr Ono knew
that this was a disappointing decision for some and he apologises to them for that.
Senator Singh thanked the President for the explanation and the apology. He expressed that he
would like to see a path forward to avoid future indecisiveness or "flip flops" on controversial
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-5
Minutes of 18 January 2017
issues. He was sure learning had been done but asked what could be done to repair relations
with First Nations communities and to avoid these kinds of problems for the future.
Dr Ono advised that he met with the sexual assault policy committee and panel and
discussed the situation, and subsequently released a statement on his personal
commitment to developing a robust policy. He has also communicated with the
President's Advisory Committee on First Nations. With respect to the first comment, it is
difficult to always know exactly what was going on everywhere. Both he and the Vice-
President, Students were not aware of the invitation in the first place and this indicated a
need for stronger communication and oversight. It was difficult to communicate with
everyone over the holidays but that is not an excuse.
Senator Forwell noted that as senators we often have to explain the University's actions and
position and she appreciated the information shared by Dr Ono. She noted that while the Senate
had confidence in Dr Ono, the public may not without the full facts on the fullness of his
reflection and consideration of the matter.
Dr Ono invited senators to have more in depth conversations with him at their
convenience on this topic if useful
Finally, Dr Ono advised that there were a good pool of candidates for Provost. He reiterated his
desire to provide the names of the finalists to the community. He further advised that similarly,
the process was proceeding well for the search for a Vice-President, Research.

Revisions to Procedures to Policy 18
Dr Tees advised Senate that under Policy 18: Appointment of Designated Senior Academic
Administrators (Joint Senate and Board Policy), the Board and Senates have allowed the
President to approve and revise procedures for implementation. On 5 December 2016, the
President approved procedural revisions to facilitate the establishment of the new associate vice-
president academic position: the Vice-Provost International. Those revisions are reported to the
Board and Senate for information,
VICE-PROVOST INTERNATIONAL SEARCH COMMITTEE APPOINTMMENTS
Dr Tees advised that The Senate Nominating Committee has received a request from the Provost
for three Senate appointees (two of whom must be faculty members, and one of whom must be a
faculty member or a student) to the search committee for a Vice-Provost International pursuant
to the revised procedures to Policy 18. In consideration of the Committees previous decisions
regarding recommendations under Policy 18, the Committee will solicit nominations from all
UBC faculty members or students for these appointments and hopes to present its
recommendations to Senate at the February meeting
TRIENNIAL REVIEW OF SENATE COMMITTEES AND PROCEDURES
Dr Tees reminded Senate that in the third year of each triennium, the Senate considers
recommendations from the Agenda and Nominating Committees for revisions to its internal
structures and procedures. The Agenda and Nominating Committees have asked for a website to
be established to provide background information and facilitate submissions for the review
process. This should be available by 1 February, and at that time, the committees will be pleased
to consider submissions from senators, senate committees, administrators, faculties, and the
broader campus community. As in past trienniums, detailed requests will also be sent to senate
committees regarding their own internal operations.
Teaching & Learning Committee
Dr Andre Ivanov, Chair of the Senate Teaching and Learning Committee, introduced Dr Janet
Giltrow, Professor of English, to present on Program Outcomes in the Arts. He suggested three
questions for senators to consider
1) How can better articulated or more specific course outcomes be used to promote student
and faculty engagement?
2) How should UBC support the articulation to more meaningful program outcomes in all
faculties?
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-9
Minutes of 18 January 2017
3)  Just as senate oversees course learning outcomes, should senate do the same for program
outcomes?
Dr Giltrow noted that there was some resistance in arts to the idea of program outcomes.
Complaints included "job training" academic freedom, and corporatisation. With regards to
academic freedom, Dr Giltrow opined that program outcomes are a consensus judgement of
departments, faculties, and universities rather than individual judgments.
Dr Giltrow suggested that there was a tradition of stating arts outcomes as critical thinking and
communications skills no matter the discipline. But then, why do we have 22 disciplines?
Dr Giltrow then outlined example program descriptions for several programs.
Dr Giltrow noted that departments were asked not just for their disciplines but for their
disciplines at UBC.
Dr Giltrow noted that with outcomes visible, we have material for students' awareness and for
department development, curriculum renewal, and for community partnerships. We can consider
capacity or incapacity for curriculum to achieve the states outcomes. Is there gap between
outcomes and traditional genres, lectures, quizzes, term papers etc. What is the role of research
disciplines in undergraduate experiences?
Dean Peacock said that this resonates a lot with the Science side of the University. He noted that
these challenges were similar to those found by the Carl Wieman initiative. Science also found
that once you clearly articulated learning outcomes you find your assessment is wanting.
Senator Haffey noted that many Arts grads did not work in their particular academic major field,
but that skills could be transferable. He applauded this work, but expressed a concern that
departments could not always be considering the broader implications of what they teach.
Dr Giltrow replied that she thought about this concern for a long time. We have to
understand what the connection is between brilliant hires and our curriculum.
The Provost noted that UBC has interdisciplinary studies and students who want to study outside
of a discipline have to produce similar statements.
Senator Sapollnik expressed that this would be helpful for students considering majors. He noted
that as a Senator and student in Arts this was the first he had heard of this idea. In seeking
opportunities following UBC this framework would be extremely valuable to students.
Dean K. Harrison advised that the heads in Arts had a recent opportunity to view more of these
outcomes.
The President noted that while he was at Emory University as a senior vice-president, learning
outcomes/assessment were mandated by some regional accrediting commissions. He noted that
many professional programs did this already and arts was usually the most difficult; however, 10
years later he said that has improved the learning experience.
 Vancouver Senate
Minutes of 18 January 2017

Dr Giltrow noted that the outcomes of some professional programs around ethics etc
were inspiring.

Reports from the Provost
ANNUAL REPORT ON ENROLMENT
Vice-Provost Pam Ratner presented the distributed report, and thanked Stephanie McEwan,
Joseph Furguson, and Kate Ross for their work on the report.
Dr Ratner highlighted the following points:
• UBC has slightly surpassed its governing-funded number of domestic undergraduate
students.
• We have increased our enrolment of Aboriginal students
• The University is working to ensure a strong national representation of students; and
• We are maintaining a healthy enrolment of a diverse international student body
representing more than 100 countries.
Dr Ratner noted that domestic applications were up by 1.8% this year, and international by
14.6%, while domestic offers were down by 0.2% and international up by 8%.
Senator Dunford asked about student completion and graduation rates, noting that for students it
was likely better to fail after first year rather than second or third.
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-11
Minutes of 18 January 2017
Dr Ratner suggested that UBC did quite well, and was slightly better than our nearest
competitor, the University of Toronto. Not all students who did not complete failed, some
transfer to other institutions.
Senator Williams took issue with the claim of diversity of a student body. She suggested that
when she looked around campus it did not look diverse to her.
Dr Ratner said this point was well taken. We have an international student initiative that
works on every continent but students apply and are considered under one pool and we
hope we are admitting the strongest. We have disproportionate numbers of applications
from some students. We have a commitment to diversity. We typical represent diversity
in terms of country of origin but students have expressed a concern regarding
socioeconomic diversity. As a result we have created new scholarships to help students
who perhaps once could have attend UBC but no longer could due to cost. Finally, she
noted that funding has been set aside for a commitment to diversity fund that Dr Sara-
Jane Finlay would speak to later in the meeting.
The President asked if we had data on cross applications between UBC and Toronto, or McGill
for instance, such as the US clearing houses.
Dr Ratner replied that the best information we had was surveys of admittees, and the
response rate is not great for those who do not attend and the sample was likely biased.
UBC tends to attract more students in such cases.
Senator Haffey thanked Dr Ratner for her report.
ANNUAL REPORT ON STUDENT EVALUATIONS OF TEACHING
Dr Eric Eich presented on 2015 Winter student evaluations of teaching. He set out the scope of
the evaluations as follows:
7335 instructor evaluations were submitted to the university for 6234 course sections in
which the University Module Item (UMI) questionnaire was administered
The UMI includes six items, five specific in orientation, one general
•    All items evaluated on 5-point scale - excellent (5), good (4), adequate (3), poor (4), very
poor (1) - that features reasonable symmetric anchor points and a clear midpoint
Dr Eich noted that our mean rating was 4.2/5 and median was 4.3/5. Overall, evaluations of
quality were very high, with relations between "in class" submissions and response rates
indicating increased response rates and decreased variance in those rates as the proportion of "in
class" (15-minute) submissions increase. He further noted that in 2014, Centre for Teaching,
Learning, and Technology (CTLT) researchers developed a set of recommended minimum
response rates based on the observed variability in the ratings of UBC instructors over several
years. Evaluations with response rates below the minimum should be interpreted with care,
particularly if they are anomalous.
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-12
Minutes of 18 January 2017
Dr Eich further noted that in 2015W, the overwhelming majority of evaluations in sections with
75 or more students met or exceeded the minimum response rates. These sections account for
57% of the total enrollment. However, more than half of the sections with 35 or fewer students
did not meet the minimum response rates. These sections account for 20% of total enrollment.
CTLT will redouble their efforts to increase students' participation in online surveys in sections
with under -50 students.
Dr Ivanov noted that this report was presented to the Senate Teaching & Learning Committee
and the committee endorsed the report and acknowledges the importance of the data. The
Committee is heartened by the data being used to improve teaching.
Dr Tees asked if there had been any changes in the results noted between 2014 and 2015.
Dr Eich replied that there had been virtually none.
COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY FUND
Dr Finlay advised that in December 2015, the Board approved the Commitment to Diversify
Fund. From that, funding was proposed with $300 000 this year and growing to $2 000 000 by
2018. The intention of the fund is to support the recruitment and retention of diverse students,
and a Student Diversity Initiative Project team, working with an advisory committee, will
identify priorities for that fund using an analysis of UBC data on student experience, literature
review of approaches to diversity at peer institutions, and facilitated focus groups with frontline
staff. Presently, that work is being viewed in the following categories:
Recruitment Strategies
UBC's commitment to diversity in recruiting must be further enhanced in recruitment strategies
and admissions policies, and aligned with efforts to engage and support diverse students.
Classrooms and Curriculum
Classrooms and curriculum provide a significant space for students to engage with each other
and their teachers across difference. Faculty should consider ways in which the relationship
between intercultural competence and academic success could be conveyed through the
curriculum.
Extracurricular Spaces
Inclusive and welcoming spaces are an essential ingredient for student engagement.
"International" Students
Many stakeholders questioned how the term "international" student is used in reference to
diversity since many of our domestic students are from diverse backgrounds.
Cultural Dimensions
 Vancouver Senate 16/17-5-13
Minutes of 18 January 2017
UBC's understanding of diversity should go beyond ethnicity, national origin, and language to
include other identity characteristics such as socio-economic status and gender identity.
Staff, Faculty, and Graduate Students.
Many stakeholders suggested UBC give greater emphasis to intercultural competence as a
requirement in the hiring and evaluation of all faculty and staff. Responsibility for diverse
students should be a broad responsibility and not fall to those who share diversity characteristics
with students.
Dr Finlay advised that in April a framework for the fund will be presented to the board.
Senator Lam noted that Ms Jenna Omassi and Dr Jude Tate came to speak to the student senator
caucus and the caucus is committed to seeing this as a priority next triennium.
Senator Forwell suggested that age and ability should be included in diversity.
Senator Anstee noted that recruiting was an obvious area for ISI's work at least for countries. In
his opinion this was our key problem. It is very costly to recruit students from some countries.
Dr Ratner noted that the ISI did target some countries in particular, those with economies
capable of supporting students at UBC. Applications from those countries were up.
Kazakhstan, Indonesia, India. We are concerned about the risk of being reliant on any
one country.
Dr Ross noted that the increase in applications from international students was spread
across many countries.
Dr Ono said that this was an effort in the US for some time. He noted that one of the most
effective things done in his experience was a 1-day diversity conference.
Senator Sparks invited Dr Finlay to a future meeting of the Senate Admissions Committee.
Recruit for diversity and admit on merit has been a principle at UBC. He suggested that needs
based funding being a larger pool could help with diversity of backgrounds of applicants.
The President further noted that he has set up a working group to better support the disabled
community at UBC.

 Vancouver Senate 16/17 - 5 -16
Minutes of 18 January 2017
The Associate Registrar, Mr Christopher Eaton, advised Senate that the Academic Policy
Committee had recently undertaken a review of UBC's academic year in consideration of
frequent comments and concerns from several components of the UBC community regarding the
academic year. He stressed that there were a large number of competing interests and
requirements that were built into the academic schedule that often improvements in one area
could lead to detriments in others. He noted that last Spring, the two Academic Policy
Committee Chairs, Provost's offices and Registrar's Office came together and agreed to review
the academic years at UBC. Key factors under consideration were:
There are presently two similar, but different, academic years for UBC's Vancouver and
Okanagan campuses.
The academic year officially only applied to undergraduate programs, but in practice
most graduate and professional programs followed it.
The academic years were constructed by the Registrar's Office under directions from
Senate policies 0-125 and V-125.
Draft academic years are set out 5 to 7 years in advance and are confirmed in January of
each year.
Differences between the academic years are around exam scheduling, holidays, and
breaks.
Pedagogical, accreditation, and regulatory needs for contact hours are key drivers.
UBC tends to have between 120 and 122 teaching days per Winter Session, one of the
fewest in Canada.
A term 1 reading week was a frequent student request for the Vancouver campus (one
already exists for the Okanagan), as is a larger gap between the end of December
examinations and the start of Term 2 in January.
Not starting in August or going into May are specific concerns for those who do not live
in 12-month housing.
Faculty requests for the academic year to align more around the primary and secondary
school schedules for both the starts of term and reading/spring breaks.
Inequity across days of the week given that most holidays occur on Mondays.
The Lunar nature of Easter.
Shared examinations complicating the examination schedule.
Session-length courses becoming term-length and now subterm-length.
Mr Eaton advised that every change would require trade-offs. Our challenge is to find solutions
that do not create worse problems. We are now working on a survey for all members of the
campus community to better understand preferences, and priorities, and what trade-offs people
preferred. We hope to bring policy revisions forward early in the next triennium. Finally, the
Okanagan Senate's committee chairs have opined that one academic year for UBC was their
preference.
Dr Anstee noted the 4 hour difference - over a week of instruction - for some classes in term 2
between Monday-Wednesday-Friday classes and Tuesday-Thursday scheduled classes. He
advised that this was not beneficial for multi-section courses.
 Vancouver Senate 16/17 - 5 -17
Minutes of 18 January 2017
Dean Peacock suggested that perhaps we should stop calling the Session that starts in September
"Winter".
Dr Ross noted that within the 7-year cycle, some years were much better than others.
Dr Forwell noted that several of her colleagues had suggested moving reading week to
correspond more with the school breaks.
Mr Eaton replied that this was debated at some length at the Academic Policy Committee
and a break so late in the term was not viewed as optimal, but everything was open to reexamination and people could bring forward arguments again for such a change.
Adjournment
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:03 pm.
