Joint Reports of the Admissions & Curriculum Committees
The Vice-Chair of the Senate Curriculum Committee, Mrs Carol Jaeger, presented.
DOCTOR OF PHARMACY
See Appendix B: Doctor of Pharmacy
Carol Jaeger } That the new Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.)
Robert Sparks Flexible degree program and its associated new
courses be approved.
With consent of Senate, Dr Peter Loewen, Director of the Doctor of Pharmacy Programs for the
Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences set out the basis of the Doctor of Pharmacy program. H
explained that this was a companion to the entry-to-practice program to allow currently licensed
pharmacists to achieve the new learning outcomes.
Senator Munro noted that the program was currently undergoing a tuition consultation. He
explained that his understanding with the VP Students office was that programs would not go to
Senate until that consultation was completed and suggested postponing.
 Vancouver Senate 14/15-3
Minutes of 17 December 2014
Dr Loewen replied that delaying approval by a month would pose problems for their
timeline.
MOTION TO POSTPONE TO JANUARY
Daniel Munro } That the proposal be postponed until the January
Aliya Daulat 2015 Meeting of Senate.
Dean Coughtrie advised that he viewed the postponement as inappropriate as the fee was not a
senate issue.
Senator Anstee said that the fee and budget information may be useful for the discussion around
the appropriateness of the program.
Dean Coughtrie noted that previous pharmacy degree did not have this taken into
consideration.
Senator Maleki advised that the AMS just submitted its initial response, and tuition and
curriculum were tied together; she suggested that to approve the program now would send the
message that this consultation could not affect the program.
Senator Nislow asked if we were discussing messaging or approving a program, and asked what
the basis was for the motion to refer.
The Chair clarified that the students believed that they did not have an opportunity to
provide comment, and that the students had had 27 days so far to comment.
Dr Loewen added that the program had met with any student groups who wished
to meet.
Senator Forwell noticed that this proposal had less financial information than others recently
proposed. She suggested that if the Board had given 30 days for consultation, then 30 days
should be given prior to Senate making a decision as changing it after the fact would be difficult.
In response to a question from Senator Singh, Dr Loewen advised that the concern was that the
degree would also need Board approval and Government approval.
Senator Jaeger clarified that the curriculum was tightly regulated and difficult to change
regardless of the fee.
Senator Haffey asked if there was general student consultation, as this was not noted in the
report.
Dr Loewen replied that the Faculty had received a lot of guidance from senate
committees on required information.
 Vanco uver Sen ate 14/15-4
Minutes of 17 December 2014
With consent of Senate, Vice-Provost Pro Tem. Hugh Brock spoke, reiterating that the matter
before the Senate was the academic program, not the tuition.
The Chair clarified that the financial aspects were the Board's responsibility, and the academic
the Senate.
Motion to
Postpone Failed
Senator Forwell asked for details on the consultation process (specifically if any concerns were
raised regarding length and the experiential component), and asked how many BScP holders
there were in BC.
Dr Loewen replied that there were roughly 5400 Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy
graduates in BC. He further noted that there was an extensive consultation process with
Pharmacists. They feedback was that they would like to complete the program as quickly
as possible. We expect it would take a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 to complete
the program, with 5 being 1 year more than the University of Toronto allowed for its
program. He further stated that the Faculty expected that some students would require
that their current site of practice be part of their experiential time, and we have a process
to accredit those sites on a time-limited basis.
Senator Thorne said that the model being proposed was common in the health sciences and
consistent with best practices.
Approved
BACHELOR  OF URBAN FORESTRY
See Appendix C: Bachelor of Urban Forestry
Carol Jaeger } That the new Bachelor of Urban Forestry (B. U.F.)
Richard Anstee degree program and its associated new minor
programs, new course code, and new and revised
courses be approved.
With consent of Senate, Dr Stephen Shepherd from the Faculty of Forestry presented. He stated
that this program would fulfill a long-felt want and fill an existing gap between Forestry and
Landscape Architecture/Environmental design.   He described the program as an innovative and
relatively uncommon program that addressed new technology and environmental wellbeing.
Further, he mentioned that it included two minors focused on the two types of students expected.
Senator Harrison asked if the students in the program would be taken from existing student
numbers or if we expected to attract new students
 Vancouver Senate 14/15-5
Minutes of 17 December 2014
Dr Shepherd replied both. In part this is also a response to a demand from current
Forestry students for new program types.
Senator Forwell asked what the student feedback was on the program and if we expected student
transfers.
Dr Shepherd replied that they did have a small list of students who are at UBC already
and who would be interested. We have consulted with undergraduate and graduate
students (we hope to follow up with a graduate program soon) local colleges, and
international universities. We hope and expect a diverse intake both domestically and
internationally.
Approved
BACHELOR  OF MUSIC/BACHELOR OF EDUCATION DUAL DEGREES PROGRAM OPTION
Carol Jaeger } That the new Bachelor of Music (General Studies:
Robert Sparks Secondary Education Streamj/Bachelor of Education

efficiency of credits.

Report from the Provost
CONSOLIDATED  FINANCIAL STATEMENTS  AND BUDGET UPDATE
The Provost presented, overall describing the University's budget as constricted for this and next
year, with some easing in the years following. For 2014, the University's budget had a2.3%
increase but our inflationary costs were 1% above that, largely driven by compensation.
Dr Farrar advised that the Provincial grant was now nearly $774M, with $520M being the
operating grant for Vancouver. The other funding was Okanagan and specific funding for some
health programs. He further noted Health plus Advanced Education now accounted for roughly
two-thirds of the Provincial budget.
The Provost highlighted the following points in his presentation:
•    The operating surplus is set at effectively zero, while he would prefer a 2% buffer.
 Vanco uver Sen ate 14/15-7
Minutes of 17 December 2014
• For the current year, we did have targeted government grant increases but the general
block grant was cut by $5 million.   Domestic tuition is up by 2% based on constant
numbers. International enrolment fees are projected to increase as are fees, providing a
16% increase. The Vantage college enrolment at 186 was lower than the 300 originally
projected.
• Merit and PTR is absorbed by the units and this puts pressure on the unit budgets,
roughly 2% a year due to lack of mandatory retirement.  There is further salary
compression between entry salaries and exit ones.
• Consolidated results for Q2 showed a deficit of around $16 million.  In most years we
have enough revenue to offset this, but this year we did not. As senators are aware, the
government does not allow us to present a consolidated deficit. This was largely a result
of faculty drawing down their reserves. We have had some accounting changes around
depreciation and renovations to help, and we deferred roughly $7 million of spending in
the central budget, but this was from opportunity not strategy.
• A number of faculties are reporting recurring deficits.  The largest with a deficit is
Medicine; the issue there is the cost of the teaching model coupled with their salaries.
Medicine does have a revenue stream from clinical work and access to other funding
sources, but does not receive enough inflationary increases in tuition to offset its salary
increases, with roughly a $10 million deficit.
• Pharmacy is essentially balanced however funding for their new building is still an issue
• Arts has a large budget but the number of domestic students is in a decline. Further, more
arts students are taking non-arts courses, and fewer non-arts students are taking arts
courses.
• Dentistry and Sauder both have good sources of revenue and this gives them a source of
stability.
• Education is 42% graduate students, and this presents them with budget pressures as PhD
students are very expensive to educate.
The provost then set out the key pressures on UBC's budget: government, economic outlooks,
and the university's ambitions; and then went over our planning assumptions for next year's
operating budget. Dr Farrar finally noted that UBC's economic impact for BC was more than the
Forestry and Mining industries combined.
Senator Haffey asked how the Provost's office had revenues listed.
The Provost replied that most of that was continuing studies ($20 million),  and the Centre
for Teaching Learning and Technology.
In response to a question from Senator Loewen, the Provost replied that IT's unit revenues were
mostly charge backs to other units, roughly $700 per employee per year.
Senator Singh asked how faculties would cope with merit and progress through the ranks (PTR)
costs.
 Vanco uver Sen ate 14/15-8
Minutes of 17 December 2014
The Provost replied that since mandatory retirement ended, UBC bad gone from
generally hiring 100 a year to sometimes hiring fewer than 10. This has reduced our
turnover savings drastically.   The only solution was to find other sources of revenue.
Senator further Singh asked how the central administration would be able to absorb cuts.
The Provost advised that we were in the process of discussions there; we do not want
across-the-board cuts. The Administration believes it can balance the budget but then the
challenge will be how to keep it balanced - we believe this will have to be through
revenue diversification.
Senator Singh expressed his concern that it would negatively affect teaching. For Science for
example, we've lost equipment grants for labs in the past.
The Provost cited Sauder as an example of a faculty that is in balance: Sauder has around
95 research faculty and30 teaching faculty. Research faculty are our most expensive asset
and we need to balance in teaching our research and teaching faculty and staff
involvement.  Sauder has a small number of PhD students who are at a high quality.
Senator Beales asked how the Vice-President Development office had no revenues.
The Provost replied that the $25 million in funding was largely matched by faculties.  The
Development Office supports faculties in raising roughly $200 million a year ($25
million of which was endowed).
Senator Maleki asked about student services like counselling and wellbeing and if they could be
better financially supported.
The Provost replied that the Vice-President Students budget was reviewed last week; with
new revenues from international student tuition and from the proposal from residence
funding we should be able to support all of their funding requests around mental health
and wellbeing.
Other Business
Senator Knight gave notice of motion for a request that the President order an independent study
of the recent sports review.
Adjournment
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:41 pm.

#4375 Kurt Henze Memorial Prize - A $1,000 prize has been made available in memory of
Kurt Henze, Supervisory Technician in the Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences,
through an endowment established by his family, friends and colleagues. Kurt Henze was a hardworking loyal, detail-oriented man who believed in doing a job well. His devotion to the
Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences, previously known as the Department of
Physiology,  stemmed from his belief in the importance of furthering medical research, leading to
the greater good of humankind. He strove to always provide the highest level of instruction,
encouraging students to aspire to excellence. Mr. Henze immigrated to Canada in 1952 from
post-war Europe, as he recognized that an individual's potential for success in this country was
only limited by his willingness to seize opportunities and work hard. In keeping with Kurt's
memory, the prize is awarded to a student who performs outstanding work in the laboratory
courses leading to graduation in Honours Cellular, Anatomical and Physiological Sciences
(CAPS), with preference given to a student who demonstrates financial need and leadership
amongst his or her peers. The prize is awarded on the recommendation of Department of Cellular
& Physiological Sciences.
Why and how amended: Upon the request of donors Ron Henze and his wife, Brenda
Horner Henze, added biographical information as well as reference to financial need and
leadership. They feel that financial need should be considered to ensure students can
complete their studies.
#7688 Society of General Practitioners of BC Medical Student Bursary - Two bursaries of
$2,000 each have been made available through an endowment established by the Society of
General Practitioners of BC. The bursaries provide assistance to fourth year students with
demonstrated financial need who have been matched through the Canadian Resident Matching
Service (CARMS) to a family medicine residency program in British Columbia.   Awards are
made on the recommendation of the Faculty of Medicine in consultation with Enrolment
Services.
Why and how amended: The Society of General Practitioners ofBC Board has requested
the change to ensure that the student(s) will be focusing on, and matched to, a family
practice residency program.
#8178 Peter JEPSON-Young Bursary -A $1,750 bursary is offered annually by Doctors of
BC in memory of Dr. Jepson-Young and in recognition of his contribution to the public
awareness of persons with AIDS. The award is offered to an undergraduate student in the Faculty
of Medicine who is a student member of Doctors of BC.
