Business Arising
The Registrar advised that her office was still considering the comments made by former-Senator
Malone at the previous meeting and would provide a response at the next meeting.
Senator Holmes suggested that the students had asked for an opportunity to have a
conversation rather than a reply.
The Registrar replied that she could set up a meeting with Ms Malone before
providing the Senate with an update.
President's Remarks
The President welcomed UBC's new Vice-President, Students, Dr Ainsley Carry, who was
present in the gallery. He noted that Dr Carry came to UBC from the University of Southern
California, where he served as vice-president for student affairs.
Dr Ono announced that UBC ranked number one in the world for taking urgent action to combat
climate change and its impacts and ranked number one in Canada for making cities inclusive,
safe, resilient and sustainable, according to Times Higher Education. He suggested that UBC's
achievements in these rankings is a clear reflection of the great work of our students, faculty and
staff who combine their expertise to ensure UBC is a leader in creating vibrant, sustainable and
connected communities and campuses.
The President congratulated Dr Connie Eaves, who has been awarded the 2019 Canada Gairdner
Wightman Award. The award recognizes scientists who make transformative contributions to
research that impacts human health. Dr. Eaves received the prestigious award for her pioneering
work and leadership in the study of hematopoietic, mammary and cancer stem cells, as well as
for her dedicated advocacy for early career investigators and women in science.
The President advised that he spoke about UBC's strategic plan at the American Council on
Education (ACE) meeting in Philadelphia in March. ACE is the major coordinating body for
colleges and universities in the United States and it was an honour to discuss our strategic plan
with such an influential group. He noted that he had a similar conversation on implementing the
strategic plan during his annual address to the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade, with particular
reference to how the plan affects the Metro Vancouver region.
Dr Ono reminded Senate that last week, McGill Principal Suzanne Fortier and he announced the
creation of the Peterson-Wesbrook Scholars Program to support the reciprocal exchange of
2018-8-3
 UBC       THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
9
students between McGill and UBC. The program is named in honour of Sir William Peterson,
Principal of McGill University from 1895 to 1919, and Frank Wesbrook, founding President of
UBC. The Peterson-Wesbrook Scholars Program will facilitate the exchange of students for
scholarly work and will allow students to benefit from the special facilities and courses found at
each university. Both UBC and McGill have provided seed funding for the program.
The President further noted that on April 8, he had cohosted a President's Community
Roundtable on supporting non-market housing innovation in Metro Vancouver. Housing and
community advocates and experts came together with myself and Dr Penny Gurstein of the
Housing Research Collaborative to discuss UBC's role in non-market housing in the region. That
same week he participated in the first ever UBC Emeritus College Symposium, moderating a
panel on scholarship in the age of populism and fake news.
Dr Ono advised that four UBC computer scientists have been appointed to chairs as part of an
expansion of the Canada-CIFAR Al Chairs program. The Al program, funded by the Federal
government with $86.5 million over five years, provides researchers with long-term, dedicated
funding to support their research programs and help them train the next generation of Canadian
Al leaders. The new UBC Science Canada CIFAR Al Chairs are Leonid Sigal, Kevin Leyton-
Brown, Mark Schmidt, and Frank Wood. They join UBC statistician Sara Mostafavi, appointed
to the program in 2018.
Finally, the President expressed his pride in UBC continuing to excel in international rankings.
Today Clarivate Analytics announced that UBC is ranked #19 in world and #1 in Canada in
research. He suggested that this is a tribute to VP Research and Innovation Gail Murphy, her
team, and most importantly, to all of UBC's outstanding researchers.
Budget Presentation
The Vice-President Finance and Operations, Dr Peter Smailes and the Vice-President Academic
and Provost, Dr Andrew Szeri presented.
Senator Hakim thanked them for including students in the consultation. He asked why the
faculty and department budgets had some large reserve funds, especially Medicine.
The Provost said Medicine was a large irrigation that was interdigitated with the health
authorities. In most cases those reserves are not held by dean's offices but rather by
included units. Those units are saving for important activities; for example, Psychology is
saving reserves for a renovation of the Kenny Building to add space for five new faculty
labs. Another use could be to plan for upcoming retirements.
Mr Smailes added that for Medicine, the government has provided additional funding that
is being spent over time.
Senator Holmes asked about the reserve draw down additions. Some only had 1 or 2%, but for
others it was close to 10%. Why the large additions?
2018-8-4
 UBC       THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate

The Provost said that, for example, LFS was saving for a number of years for a new
building on the farm. Smailes added that one point of the budget was to highlight why
reserve funds existed and what they were intended for.
Senator Singh noted the increases in projected international revenue and asked if increases, 13%
in this case, were sustainable over the next decade given international competition and domestic
politics.
The Provost noted that at the last Senate meeting he presented on long-term enrolment
planning. We had a period of rapid growth but that growth is now levelling off. Those
enrolment targets are approved by the Board and Senate annually. We do a lot of work to
ensure that we have a diverse body of international students, unlike some other Canadian
universities. That both gives us more sustainability and improves the learning
environment. We do consider space and teaching capacity carefully in working out
enrolment planning.
Senator Singh asked what aspect of our budget was targeted towards experiential learning. As
the budget flows from central to the faculty to the department, we don't necessarily see that
reflected.
The Provost said that experiential learning and undergraduate research are partially
funded by faculties and departments and partly from the central budget. One of the things
the strategic plan calls us to do is have a more coherent plan for our programs,
investments, and expenditures in this area.
The President thanked the Senator for the question. He suggested that as a university we
can never take n such revenues for certain, and the executive and board were also
considering this issue. We do have other levers, for example, we are trying to advance
our development opportunities to augment or fill gaps. There is also some federal or
provincial funding available for certain initiatives. Also, institutions always have to look
below the increment to see how efficient UBC is. We always hope that we can be more
efficient and have cost savings. Dr Ono committed to reporting back to the Senate on
this.
Senator Krebs said that for research excellence the allocation was $34 million and for
transformational learning only $5 million. She suggested that this area was a key priority for our
strategic plan and these numbers seemed small by comparison. She asked what was the rationale
and how those allocations were made?
The Provost said that this was a snapshot in time. We are making a large investment in
digital research computing infrastructure. This would be a sustained investment that
would lift us to a new level. A year from now we will be back with not such a large
investment for research and instead we will propose investment elsewhere. We are
making this investment because the national infrastructure is not working for many UBC
researchers. We are still continuing a sustained patter of investment in the teaching and
learning enhancement fund, and the new online learning advancement fund.

The President added that across the overall budget, one thing not mentioned frequently is
the $668 million in research income that funds a lot of things in the budget. Infrastructure
support for research is under duress right now across UBC. STEM and Health disciplines
in particular need support here, we are trying to solve that via U15 and Universities
Canada but that is a slow process so this focused investment is to allow our researchers to
continue.
Senator Leuprecht noted that page 20 and 22 differed in terms of their strategic hires, with the
former referring to Law and Education and the latter including Medicine.
The Provost said it was a question of from where the funding was being allocated. We are
working to renew the Faculty of Medicine. The issue with Law and Education is that they
can only accommodate domestic students in most cases and they have constrained
domestic tuition. From time to time we do aid all the faculties in their hiring aspirations.
Senator Chai asked what the distribution was for projects within the envelope for individual
projects.
The Provost said this was a high level budget presentation; each proposal has its own
budget and rationale that is reviewed under the budget process.
The President said we can make the details available upon request.
Academic Policy Committee
The Chair of the Senate Academic Policy Committee, Dr Paul Harrison presented.
REVISION TO ACADEMIC REGULATIONS FOR THE FACULTY OF GRADUATE AND
POSTDOCTORAL STUDIES
Paul Harrison }        That Senate approve the amended Calendar
Philip Loewen language put forward by the

INTERIM REPORT ON SUMMER SESSION COURSES AND STUDENT AWARDS
Dr Burr advised that an interim report had been distributed to the Senate.
The Committee settled on four principles that would guide the Committee's decision-making
process in this inquiry:
2018-8-7
 UBC
THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
w
1. Equality of Access
All students should have an equal opportunity to earn merit-based awards. Awards eligibility
rules should not unreasonably disadvantage students for reasons unrelated to merit.
2. Maintenance of Rigour
Merit-based awards should continue to recognize academic or other achievement.
Changes to awards eligibility rules should not dilute the significance of the achievement
represented by merit-based awards.
3. Transparency
The criteria for granting awards should be clear, public, and easy to understand.
Students should be able to determine in advance of registration whether or not they will be
eligible for awards.
4. Administrative Efficiency
The administration of awards programs should not be an undue burden on the University's
resources, relative to the impact on students.
Dr Burr advised that they had also surveyed other Canadian post-secondary institutions practices
in this area. The results of the survey revealed that there is no clear consensus as to whether and
how summer courses are considered in awards adjudication processes in Canadian post-
secondary educational institutions. While the majority of institutions do not consider summer
session courses in adjudicating awards, a significant number do take summer session courses into
account, at least in some circumstances.
Dr Burr further advised that his Committee had reached out to all the faculties, 9 replied. We
have also requested data from PAIR. He noted that some faculties expressed skepticism that a
change would make a difference.
Dr Burr stated that once the Committee has had an opportunity to review the results of the
request to PAIR, the Committee will consider the implications of that data for different possible
policy changes. The Committee will assess the potential impact of different changes and
determine whether any promising options for policy change can be identified. The Committee
will then seek an opinion from the Registrar on the impact of any such changes. The Committee
will ask the Registrar to advise on the practicalities of implementing any such changes, both
within the current Student Information System and within the Workday platform, and to leverage
the expertise within Enrolment Services to offer guidance on the impact of any possible changes
on students and on adjudication processes.
If, based on the opinion of the Registrar, there remain policy changes worth considering, the
Committee will then seek the input of the Academic Policy Committee and other relevant Senate
2018-8-8
 UBC       THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate
9
Committees before proposing possible changes to the Faculties, representative student bodies
and other stakeholders through a campus-wide consultation process. Subject to the results of this
consultation process, the proposed changes would then be proposed to Senate for approval.
Senator Loewen said that if the committee made a decision to make no changes they should
report back to the Senate on that basis.
Senator Burr agreed and said that was their intent.
Curriculum Committee
The Chair of the Senate Curriculum Committee, Dr Peter Marshall, presented.
APRIL CURRICULUM REPORT
See Appendix B: Curriculum Report
Peter Marshall }        That the new courses, revised courses, revised
Michael Isaacson program option, and discontinuation of
admittance to a major brought forward by the
faculties of Arts, Education, land and Food
Systems, and Science be approved.
Dr Marshall presented a summary of the proposed curriculum changes.
Approved
NEW CERTIFICATES
Dr Marshall said that these were existing programs that were never officially approved. His
Committee had reviewed the certificates and finding them to be appropriate, has approved them
retrospectively:
Certificate in Early Years Education (EYED)
Certificate in Infant Development and Supported Childcare (IDSC)
Certificate in Health and Wellness
Undergraduate Certificate in Textiles Studies
Certificate in Teaching About Visual and Material Culture
