Remarks from the Chair and Related Questions
Admissions Committee
Dr. Rosengarten presented the following report, as Chair of the Committee.
Present Calendar Entry (page 220 column 2 and 3 of the 2002/03 Calendar)
For details of application deadlines, see 2002/2003 Application Deadlines. For information
regarding tuition and student fees, please see Fees.
Application forms are available to download from the website at ed/admission.html
Completed application materials must be accompanied by an application fee. Application fees
for teacher education are CAD$47 for applicants presenting BC documents and CAD$59 for
applicants presenting documents from outside BC, and CAD$32.50 for applicants who have
previously registered in an undergraduate program in the Faculty of Education. These fees are
not refundable.
Selection of Candidates
Applicants to the teacher education program are evaluated on both academic and non-
academic criteria. Because the number of qualified applicants significantly exceeds the number
of available positions, not every qualified applicant will be admitted. Applicants are evaluated
on the following criteria:
An interview may be required by the Faculty as a part of the admission procedure. Applicants
are responsible for their own expenses in attending admission interviews.
Advice to Applicants
Persons who intend to complete their Bachelor of Education after August 2000 and seek
certification from the British Columbia College of Teachers should note that the College will
require that they have completed at least 30 senior credits in
•     any one of or any combination of art/visual arts, English, French language and literature,
biology, chemistry, computer science, geography, geological sci-

Admissions Committee
ences, history, home economics, mathematics, music, physics, or technology studies, or
•     any combination of subjects included in the British Columbia public school curriculum
with a maximum of 12 credits in any single subject other than the subjects listed above.
Subject areas acceptable for admission to all program options in the Faculty of Education are
included in the BC public school curriculum. The British Columbia College of Teachers
regards as senior all third- and fourth-year courses, including all 300- and 400-level UBC
courses, as well as courses not of an introductory nature that are completed following six
credits of introductory coursework in the same subject area. For example, when a student
completes POLI 100 (6) and POLI 200 (3), POLI 200 will be regarded as senior level.
Eligibility for certification as a teacher in British Columbia is based on the acceptability of
courses in UBC-equivalent credits to the British Columbia College of Teachers. For specific
program requirements, please see the appropriate section under Admission. Teacher education
programs in British Columbia are approved by the British Columbia College of Teachers.
Acceptance of the Offer of Admission
Candidates who receive an offer of admission will have a limited time to respond to the offer.

Admission Selection Process
Applicants to the teacher education program are evaluated on both academic and non-
academic criteria. Each application is reviewed in comparison to other applications to the
same program option and teaching subject (secondary and middle years). The evaluations of
an applicant's academic requirements and non-academic requirements are normally
undertaken concurrently, not consecutively. Because the number of qualified applicants
significantly exceeds the number of
 Vancouver Senate 13018
Minutes of December 18,2002
Admissions Committee
available places, not every qualified applicant will be admitted. Applicants are evaluated on
the following criteria:
1. Academic Requirements
All applicants must have completed academic admission requirements prescribed by
the Faculty of Education, including a four year degree (or 90 credits for the elementary
2 year option), 6 credits of English and various subjects specified for the elementary
option, the middle years option or the secondary option. For details, applicants must
review academic requirements for individual options (please see the appropriate
section under Admission>). Language test scores may also be part of academic
requirements for some applicants or for specific options or subjects.
• Admission average. The admission average for elementary and middle years
option is calculated on 33 credits including: 6 credits of English, 3 credits of
mathematics, 3 credits of laboratory science, 3 credits of history/geography,
and 18 credits of senior coursework in a teachable subject area. The admission
average for the secondary option is calculated on the senior courses for each
teaching field. A minimum admission average of 65 % is required; however,
competition for the available seats is high and the admission average of
successful applicants is normally higher than the 65 % minimum required for
Overall Academic History:
• The range of an applicant's courses covering subject areas relevant to teaching
the selected grade levels and subject area(s), (particularly secondary applicants),
is also taken into consideration in making admission decisions.
• An applicant's overall academic performance, including failures, is also
considered in admissions decisions.
2. Non-Academic Requirements
All applicants must submit:
a. summary of experience working with school age children and/or youth;
b. a one-page essay indicating what they have learned from their experience with
school age children and/or youth that will help them in their teaching career;
c. two confidential reference reports.
The evaluation of the information provided on the above materials is an integral part
of the Faculty's selection process. Applicants' experience with children/youth and their
personal character and qualities as reflected in the reference reports are essential
selection criteria. Qualities appropriate to the profession of teaching that referees are
asked to judge include: motivation for teaching; enthusiasm; leadership potential;
dependability; initiative; flexibility and adaptability, including the ability to deal with
change and/or stressful situations; oral and written communication skills; ability to
interact appropriately with children and/or youth and with adults; ability to identify
problems and pose possible solutions; and ability to accept feedback and respond to
 Vancouver Senate 13019
Minutes of December 18,2002
Agenda Committee
Normally an applicant without experience with school age children and/or youth is
not admitted to the program.
The Faculty may require an applicant to have an interview with the Admissions
3.   Evaluation of an Application in Comparison with Other Applicants
When an applicant is deemed to have satisfied academic requirements and his/her non-
academic requirements are accepted as satisfactory, his/her application will be
compared with applications of other applicants who have applied to the same option
or the same subject area(s). Normally applicants with higher admission averages will
be offered admission earlier than those with lower admission averages.
If there are more qualified applicants than there are spaces in an option(s) or a subject
area(s) for the secondary option, not all applicants who have met our admission
requirements will be offered admission to the program.
An applicant will have a maximum of four weeks to respond to an offer of admission.
The above proposal has already been implemented in practice at the Faculty of Education for
a number of years and is included in the Faculty's admission advising materials. The proposal
delineates the admission selection process more clearly to all concerned and further assists our
applicants in their application preparation. The inclusion of details for the non-academic
requirements is modeled on the calendar entry for the Faculty of Medicine. Referees are asked
to comment on these specific attributes because they have been identified as key problem areas
during the extended practicum.
Effective Date: as soon as approved.
Dr. Rosengarten i        That Senate approved the proposed changes to
Mr. McNulty J        the Bachelor of Education admissions
Agenda Committee
Dr. Slonecker reported that the Agenda Committee had received reports that members of
Senate might prefer an earlier meeting start time. He recalled that Senate met at 8:00 p.m.
for many years, but the start time had been moved to 7:00 p.m. in recent years, in
response to member
 Vancouver Senate 13020
Minutes of December 18,2002
Continuing Studies Committee
feedback. He asked senators to comment about the suitability of the current 7:00 p.m.
start time. Dr. Slonecker indicated that the Agenda Committee intended to collect
information at the present meeting, and then would ask members of Senate to vote on any
proposed change prior to the February 2003 meeting of Senate.
Three senators spoke in favour of the status quo, citing 7:00 as a reasonable time that
allowed for a meal break, as well as time for groups of senators to hold caucus meetings.
Two senators expressed the opinion that an earlier time would be better, so that people
travelling from out of town would be able to return home at a reasonable hour. One
member spoke specifically against a return to the 8:00 start time, citing an unreasonably
late commute home.
Dr. Slonecker agreed to take the opinions of Senate back to the Agenda Committee for
further discussion.
Continuing Studies Committee
Note: This report is not included in the Minutes. Copies are available from the Assistant
Registrar, Senate & Curriculum Services.
Ms. Hutton presented for information a summary of all certificate programs currently
offered at UBC. She stated that these programs reflected a very broad content base and
were responsive to both local and global needs, and described them as a "success story"
for the University.
In response to a query from Dr. Rosengarten, Ms. Hutton stated that the certificate
programs in the Faculty of Education were made up of degree credit courses.
Dr. Cherchas stated that the Faculty of Applied Science was working to establish a
continuing education credit system, and asked whether Continuing Studies would be
interested in working
 Vancouver Senate 13021
Minutes of December 18,2002
Curriculum Committee
together with the Faculty on this project. Ms. Hutton stated that Continuing Studies
would be glad to partner with Applied Science, and added that Continuing Studies was
working with Enrolment Services on ways to better categorize students engaged in lifelong
Curriculum Committee

Dr. Adebar presented the reports on behalf of the Committee. He gave a brief description
of the distinction between Category 1 and Category 2 changes. Category 1 was for larger
changes affecting more than one Faculty, or with significant budgetary implications, or
anything particularly controversial, while Category 2 encompassed smaller, more
editorial-type changes. Category 1 proposals were presented to Senate for approval, while
a large number of Category 2 changes had been sent directly to Enrolment Services for
inclusion in the Calendar. Dr. Adebar stated that Senate should also expect a large
number of Category 1 curriculum changes for approval in January 2003.
Dr. Adebar l        That Senate approve the curriculum proposals
Dr. Tees J       from the Faculty of Arts.
Vice President McBride asked whether the Curriculum Committee, when approving new
courses, considered the total number of courses offered by the University and the related
financial implications. Dr. Adebar responded that, although the Committee did not
monitor the total number of approved courses, many course deletions had also been
processed behind the scenes as Category 2 changes. In addition to the usual
"housekeeping" types of course deletions, the Curriculum Committee also planned to
request that Faculties take a more proactive approach and delete courses that have not
been offered for a specified period of time.
 Vancouver Senate 13022
Minutes of December 18,2002
Curriculum Committee
Dean Muzyka suggested that an annual summary of inactive courses might be useful, such
that Senate might better understand the dynamics by Faculty. Dr. Adebar stated that
discussions were ongoing within the Curriculum Committee, and that he was certain that
such a report could be arranged in the future.
Responding to Vice President McBride's comments about the financial implications of
new courses, Dr. Tees clarified that new courses typically either replaced previous courses,
or alternated with existing courses, for very little net increase in the number of total
courses offered. Although he supported the idea of regular deletion of inactive courses, he
pointed out that departments were unlikely to gain faculty members or additional funding
by adding new courses to their rosters.
Mr. Tompkins stated that he had heard concerns from fellow graduate students about a
perceived reduction in the number of available graduate courses, and asked that this issue
be considered by departments.
Dr. Vessey cited the example of two new religious studies courses to be delivered by the
holder of the recently established Diamond Chair in Jewish Law and Ethics, noting that
these new courses simply helped to fulfill the wishes of the donor and did not imply
irresponsibility on behalf of the Faculty. Dr. Windsor-Liscombe stated that some of the
curriculum proposals, including new courses, were the result of adjustments and
rationalization of faculty strengths within the Faculty of Arts.
Vice President McBride clarified that his intent was not to stifle innovation, but to
highlight the fact that Faculties must realize and account for the costs associated with new
course offerings.
The motion was
put and carried.

Reports from the Vice President, Academic & Provost
Vice President McBride was proud to present this new interfaculty and cross disciplinary
initiative for approval, stating that the new Centre would build upon Canada's research
acumen in the area of blood research, and would create a better blood transfusion service,
in support of Canadian Blood Services. The Centre was to be located on campus in the
new Life Sciences building, which was under construction.
Vice President McBride    l        That Senate approve the establishment of the
Dean Cairns i        UBC Blood Research Centre.
Mr. Brady expressed concern about budgetary support for the Centre after the
termination of the initial five-year operating grant. He noted that the Centre's 25 faculty
members, plus any additional appointments, would be left unfunded. Vice President
McBride stated that he anticipated renewal of the grant, and that the faculty members
currently employed by UBC would continue to draw their salaries from the University. He
reiterated that the establishment of the new Centre did not entail any new financial
commitments for UBC, even after the initial five-year period.
In response to a further question from Mr. Brady about the impact of the Centre on
teaching, Dean Cairns stated that faculty members involved with the Centre would
continue to fulfill their teaching obligations to their respective departments.
In response to a question from Dr. Windsor-Liscombe about intellectual property rights,
Vice President McBride stated that this issue had been considered, and that license and
royalty agreements were in place.

Report from the University Librarian
In response to a question from Mr. Brady, Dean Cairns stated that the Centre's steering
committee was comprised of five full-time UBC faculty members. The current steering
committee members and the director were the founding members of the Centre. Dr. Tees
stated that the governance of this new Centre was similar to that of the Brain Research
Centre, and was consistent with the Senate policy on the governance of centres and
The motion was

Report from the University Librarian
Note: the full text of this report is not included in the Minutes. Copies are available from
the Assistant Registrar, Senate & Curriculum Services.
Ms. Quinlan presented highlights from the Report of the University Librarian to the
Senate for the 2001 - 2002 fiscal year, including the opening of a new branch at Robson
Square and the Chapman Learning Commons in Main Library. Ms. Quinlan noted that
visits to Main Library had increased by approximately 1000 daily since the opening of the
Chapman Learning Commons. New staff positions included several Assistant University
Ms. Quinlan described this reporting period as a very full year with respect to donor
activity, highlighting specifically the donation by Dr. H. Colin Slim of his remarkable
Stravinsky collection. The gift was celebrated with three days of events.
Activity over the following year was to include the replacement of the Library's online
catalogue system. Data migration was set to take place in 2004, following wide
consultation. Approximately 30 percent of the Library's professional staff was poised to
retire over the following year, and Ms. Quinlan asked for the user community's patience
during the recruitment and training periods.
 Vancouver Senate 13026
Minutes of December 18,2002
Report from the University Librarian
Ms. Quinlan stated that, thanks to budgetary support from tuition fee increases and the
indirect costs of research funding, the Library had been able to operate during 2001 -
2002 at the status quo. During the following year, however, the completion of a large
federally-funded project would entail a decrease in funding of approximately $700 K, and
Ms. Quinlan expressed some concern about possible impacts.
On behalf of the Library Committee, Dr. Rosengarten congratulated Ms. Quinlan and the
Library staff on the enormous success of the Chapman Learning Commons. Ms. Quinlan
stated that student input had contributed to the project's ultimate success; students had
clearly indicated that they wanted a place that directly supported learning, rather than
additional social space.
Ms. Quinlan reported on the progress of the planned construction of the Irving K. Barber
Learning Centre at Main Library. Thanks to a magnificent donation from Mr. Barber,
along with matching funding, a $60 million facility was in the planning and design phase,
with opening of the first part of the new building planned for the fall of 2005. Architects
had been appointed by the Board of Governors in September 2002. Demolition was to
begin early in 2003, with current tenants to be relocated in March. Ms. Quinlan stated
that the planning team was currently considering how to minimize the impact on the
Library's operations and how to keep its collections accessible. Updates were to be
available on the Library's website at:
In response to a question from Dr. Vessey, Ms. Quinlan confirmed that robotic book
retrieval was to be a feature of the new facility. Robots would retrieve bins holding a
requested item, but would not handle individual books. This technology had been used in
warehouses for over 25 years, as well as at universities such as the University of
California, Northridge and the University of Calais in France. This was to be the first
installation in a Canadian library.

Report from the Registrar
ACADEMIC YEAR 2003 - 2004
Note: The most recent version of the 2003 - 2004 Academic Year is available at: cfm?page=2003 &action=draft.
Mr. Silzer circulated the draft 2003 - 2004 Academic Year for information. He stated that
the draft had already been circulated widely within the campus community. He
highlighted a scheduling variation for the Summer Session 2004, which was scheduled to
begin and end later than in previous years.
In response to a question from Mr. Brady, Ms. Collins, Assistant Registrar, Senate &
Curriculum Services, stated that the later schedule represented strictly a shift in dates,
rather than an expansion of the summer term.
Other Business
In response to a question from Mr. Affleck, Dean Cairns confirmed that the Vancouver
Coastal Health Authority (VCHA) planned to release a formal statement on December 19
regarding the pending restructuring of the UBC Hospital. The Hospital was to become a
sub-acute care and surgical short-stay facility, rather than a full service hospital.
Specialized services, including psychiatry, the Brain Research Centre, and the Student
Health Service were to remain on-site. There was controversy surrounding how
emergency room services would be delivered under the new configuration. Undergraduate
and post-graduate teaching was to continue at the Hospital, following a period of
transition. The Dean stated that the VCHA statement was to include a major commitment
to patient safety and quality of care, and that the restructuring would not result in a huge
cost savings. With fewer dollars available due to government cuts, the Dean stated that
the University's challenge was to ensure an ongoing commitment to education and
 Vancouver Senate 13028

research. He encouraged senators to read the public announcement the following day for
further details.
Mr. Tompkins stated that he had been contacted by Mr. Hugh Soulis, a student in the
Faculty of Arts who was concerned about the relatively small number of classes offered
during evening hours, and asked whether the President's office was preparing a response
to Mr. Soulis' earlier correspondence on this matter. Vice President McBride confirmed
that his office was composing a response, and that it would be sent to Mr. Soulis in the
near future.
Vice President McBride stated that CUPE 2278 had recently served the University with
strike notice. A committee to be chaired by the Vice President, Academic and Provost and
comprised of the Vice President, Students, the Associate Vice President, Academic
Programs, the Chair of the Senate Academic Policy Committee, several deans, and several
students was charged with communicating strike information to students and mitigating
any difficulties that may arise. A mediator had been identified, and settlement
negotiations were planned to take place throughout January 2003, but Vice President
McBride felt it was important to inform Senate that there was in place a process for
handling a possible strike.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned. The next regular meeting of
the Senate is scheduled for Wednesday, January 22, 2003 at 7:00 p.m.

Previously-Approved Award With Changes in Terms:
Award 08275 - Bob BAKER Memorial Bursary in Law: A $300 bursary has been endowed by the
Law Class of 1981 in memory of Bob Baker (L.L.B.1981).
How amended? Original description said that the bursary was endowed by "family and friends."
The family felt strongly that this was inaccurate, as they contributed only a small amount, with
the majority of the funds coming from Mr. Baker's former classmates. At their request, the
wording of the description has been amended to reflect the major source of donation as the Law
Class of 1981.
