Call to Order
The President called the sixth regular meeting of the Senate for the 2011/2012 academic
year to order. Given that the Senate did not meet in January, he wished the Senate a
happy new year and best wishes for the second term.
Tributes Committee
The Committee Chair, Dr Sally Thorne, read the following minute for the record:
Born in Vancouver, Dr McConnell received Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts
degrees from UBC and went on to complete doctoral studies in English Language and
Literature from UC Berkeley (1967), with a research focus on the fiction of Joseph
Conrad. Following completion of a Ph.D., Dr McConnell taught in BC and Ontario
public schools for 19 years before joining the UBC Department of Language and
Education in 1958, where she remained until her retirement in 1980.
Vol. 2011/12 11/12-66
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 61
Minutes of 15 February 2012
At the University, her many service activities included membership on the Senate
(1972-1975) and the Senior Appointments Committee, in addition to leadership roles
within the Faculty of Education and on various professional and learned societies.
Along with the then Acting Dean of Education, Dr Roy Bentley, Dr McConnell
founded the UBC Composition Workshops, which were instrumental in improving the
teaching of composition in the province.
In 1989, Dr McConnell was awarded the Merron Chorny Award for outstanding
contribution to the teaching of English in Canada by the Canadian Council of
Teachers of English. The citation read, in part: "Dr. McConnell's textbooks have had
a significant impact on Canadian English education. Her text with Phillip Penner,
Learning English, first published in 1963, is still being used in many English classes
because of its clear and straightforward presentation of linguistic concepts. Her
pioneering text in the study of Canadian dialects, Our Own Voice: Canadian English
and How It Is Studied, brought a new dimension to language study in the classroom."
MEMORIAL MINUTE FOR DR RUTH ETHEL MCCONNELL
Sally Thorne }        That Senate approve the Memorial Minute for
Lance Rucker Dr. Ruth Ethel McConnell, that it be entered
into the Minutes of Senate and that a copy be
sent to the family of the deceased.
Approved.
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
Des Verma }        That the Minutes of the Meeting of 14
foe Belanger December 2011 be adopted as presented.
Approved.
Remarks from the Chair
With regard to new and extended leadership appointments, the President announced that
a recommendation to the Board would be forthcoming regarding the appointment of a
new Vice-President Communications and Community Partnership. This position will
replace the current Vice-President External, Community and Legal Affairs. In addition,
UBC is in the midst of the consideration of the re-appointment of the Provost; the
responsible committee will be meeting with a wide selection of the University community.
The President requested that any comments from senators on the Provost's extension be
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-68
Minutes of 15 February 2012
sent to him directly or to the director of his office. Finally, the Board of Governors has
approved the appointment of Dr Deborah Buzsard as Deputy Vice-Chancellor &
Principal for UBC's Okanagan campus effective this summer.
In speaking to the provincial and federal budgets, on the federal level the Chair noted that
the U15 presidents met in January with the Prime Minister. The tone of this meeting was
cordial and the Prime Minister seemed positive on the role of universities in Canada; this
same tone was repeated in a private meeting with Finance Minister Flaherty. The U15 and
AUCC presidents have taken the perspective that key discussion point with the federal
government should be the protection of the core operating grant budgets of the federal
granting councils and we have undertaken a systematic campaign to reinforce this point.
To date, the University feels reasonably confident from a federal standpoint.
At the provincial level, a budget will be tabled next week. The indication for this year is
that the research universities will be protected from cuts, but will not see any increases to
keep pace with inflation. In addition, UBC is headed into public sector bargaining and
this does allow for the possibility for modest government-unfunded wage increases.
A consultation exercise has been launched regarding the possible creation of a "School of
Complex Governance." The name is a placeholder and a sign that this University does not
simply want to duplicate the strengths of the 16 other policy schools in Canada. Dr
Catherine Dauvergne is leading the exercise to articulate an exciting vision for the
proposed school. Two Tier-1 Canada Research Chairs are being held in reserve to help
launch the school; the goal is to find and apply new resources towards the school, not
take them away from the funding for existing academic enterprises. Therefore, external
fundraising and other external support would be integral.
Finally, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is holding its
annual convention in Vancouver starting tomorrow. UBC is involved in the organizing of
this conference and roughly Vk of its panels will have UBC participation; the President is
serving as a local co-chair. The President encouraged those who have an interest to
participate and thanked those who already have.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 69
Minutes of 15 February 2012
Senator Rasmussen asked if innovation and productivity, indicated as goals of the Prime
Minister, were the University's goals.
The President replied that innovation certainly is, provided it is characterized
properly. In speaking with the Vancouver Sun earlier this day, the President
mentioned that he made clear that basic research is the source of innovation. In
terms of productivity, Professor Toope stated that UBC has a role in ensuring that
we have a well-educated populous. This is true for undergraduate but especially
the case for graduate education.
A student senator asked if the new complex governance school would offer academic
programs, specifically at the graduate level.
The President replied that this is one of the issues being explored by Professor
Dauvergne. He expects some sort of graduate program to be likely, but not
necessarily an M.P.A. Part of the consultation exercise will be to determine if UBC
can add value to existing programs or create a new program that leverages existing
resources.
Dr Harrison said he was encouraged that the U15 presidents were working to maintain
tri-council funding, but noted that yet again undergraduate summer scholarship funding
has been cut and that these cuts harmed the next generation of scholars; he asked if the
President could take up this matter once again.
The President agreed.
From the Board of Governors
The Chair confirmed that the following items approved by the Vancouver Senate were
subsequently approved by the Board of Governors as required under the University Act:
SENATE MEETING OF 14 DECEMBER 2011
• Curriculum proposals from the Faculties of Applied Science, Arts, Graduate
Studies (Applied Science, Arts, College for Interdisciplinary Studies, Education,
Forestry, Land and Food Systems, Medicine, and Science), and Science.
• Student Awards
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 70
Minutes of 15 February 2012
•    Renaming of the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences to the Department of
Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences in the Faculty of Science, effective 1 April
2012.
Academic Policy Committee
The Committee Chair, Dr Paul Harrison, presented.
ROLLING GRADUATION - FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES
Paul Harrison }        That rolling graduation for graduate programs
Philip Loewen be approved as set out in the attached
proposal.
Dr Harrison added that the secondary item in this proposal was to delete a vestigial
reference in the Calendar to M.D./B.Sc. graduation to tidy up the Calendar.
The main issue is to provide graduate students with a mechanism to have their degrees
conferred sooner to facilitate them going on to further studies and careers.
Senator Baimbridge noted that a number of Post Doctoral awards were time-limited to a
number of years after graduation, so some students may want to not graduate early.
Dean Porter replied that students would not be forced to apply to graduate early as
a result of this proposal; a graduate student senator noted that they would work to
educate graduate students on this issue.
Approved.
MEDICAL RESIDENT STATUS
Paul Harrison }        That 'medical resident or intern' be removed
Lance Rucker from the Classification of Students as laid out
in the UBC Vancouver Academic Calendar.
Dr Harrison explained that medical residents were currently listed under the categories of
student in the Calendar. The category was added in 1992 by Senate. The Faculty has
requested that student status be removed from residents as they are employees of the
health authority and are not in the traditional sense students of UBC.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 71
Minutes of 15 February 2012
In response to a question from the floor, Dr Harrison confirmed that 3rd and 4th year
Medical students, although informally called interns, would retain student status.
Senator Burr asked how this would affect Pharmacy and Dentistry residents.
Dr Harrison replied that the faculties in question were still considering whether or
not they had a need for a similar category. Further changes may be forthcoming as
a result.
With the permission of Senate, a representative from the Faculty of Medicine explained
how the College of Physicians and Surgeons requirements led to a need for registration
with the University for Medicine residents.
The Registrar confirmed that the University would continue to report the number of
residents to the Province, just as a different category.
In response to a question from Senator Loewen, Dr Harrison confirmed that Medicine
residents were not AMS or GSS members presently and so this proposal would not affect
their relationship with the student societies.
Dr Wendy Hall asked if Medical residents would lose a right to appeal standing decisions
to the Senate with this change.
Dr Harrison replied that the proposal would restrict any appeals to within the
residency program, but to date no appeal has ever been ruled upon by a Senate
committee. This change was prompted in part to clarify who was responsible for
residency matters including any complaints or appeals.
Approved.
CHANGES TO THE MANDATE AND STRUCTURE OF THE COLLEGE FOR
INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES
Paul Harrison }        That Senate approve changes to the mandate
Sean Haffey an<^ structure of the College for
Interdisciplinary Studies as set out in the
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 72
Minutes of 15 February 2012
'Proposal to Change the Mandate and
Structure of the College for Interdisciplinary
Studies', effective April 1, 2012; and,
That Senate approve that the Fisheries Centre
be transferred from the College for
Interdisciplinary Studies to the Faculty of
Science, effective April 1, 2012; and,
That Senate approve and recommend to the
Board of Governors the following, effective
April 1, 2012:
That the Centre for Women and Gender
Studies be transferred from the College
for Interdisciplinary Studies to the
Faculty of Arts;
That the Centre for Women and Gender
Studies be merged with Women and
Gender Studies to create a new institute
named the Institute for Gender, Race,
Sexuality and Social Justice;
That the Institute of Applied
Mathematics be transferred from the
College for Interdisciplinary Studies to
the Faculty of Science;
That the Institute for Resources,
Environment and Sustainability be
transferred from the College for
Interdisciplinary Studies to the Faculty
of Science;
That the Institute for European Studies
be transferred from the College for
Interdisciplinary Studies to the
Department of Political Science in the
Faculty of Arts;
That the Liu Institute for Global Issues
be transferred from the College for
Interdisciplinary Studies to the Faculty
of Arts; and,
That the Media and Graphics
Interdisciplinary Centre be transferred
from the College for Interdisciplinary
Studies to the Institute for Computing,
Information and Cognitive Systems; and
That Senate recommend to the President that
the appointment of Dr Kurt Hubner be
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 73
Minutes of 15 February 2012
transferred from the College for
Interdisciplinary Studies to the Department of
Political Science.
Dr Harrison explained the history of the College from its creation in 2006. After much
consultation and consideration, it was decided to propose a different way of supporting
interdisciplinary connections at UBC. The reason the motion is complex is due to UBC's
governance system and the nature of the academic units involved.
Dr Baimbridge asked what groups would remain after the proposed transfers were made.
Principal Brock replied that the new role of CFIS would be to support innovation,
and to support interdisciplinary programs at both the undergraduate and graduate
levels. For the moment, the College will retain six stand-alone graduate programs.
The main role will be facilitation of interdisciplinary work. In terms of personnel,
once all transfers were made three staff would remain.
Dr Harrison added that the support for interdisciplinary has to come from the
whole community, not just the CFIS principal's office. A lot of responsibility for
interdisciplinarity will be put upon the deans and heads.
Senator Belanger asked if there was any risk for faculty member promotion and tenure
considerations not being properly informed.
Dr Harrison replied that a system was being established to ensure that people are
not harmed in those considerations. Deans may have to incorporate new people
into some processes as a result for those engaged in interdisciplinary work.
Senator Vessey asked for it to be on record that prior to the CFIS arrangement there was
an ad hoc system of interdisciplinary communication that worked for decades within the
Faculty of Graduate Studies and that it worked well. He went on to describe this system
to the applause of senators.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 74
Minutes of 15 February 2012
Dr Hall asked if there would be any consequences for graduate students if CFIS no longer
had faculty.
Dr Harrison replied that former CFIS students would remain students in the
Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Senator Ivanov asked for the status of the School of Community and Regional Planning.
Dr Harrison replied that the remaining four units would be brought forward for
transfer at the next meeting of Senate.
Approved.

 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 76
Minutes of 15 February 2012
William McKee }        That the new courses and program changes
William McNulty brought forward by the Faculties of
Commerce and Business Administration,
Dentistry, Education, Graduate Studies
(Arts, College for Interdisciplinary Studies,
Education, Graduate Studies, Law, and
Medicine) and Law be approved.
Dr McKee presented a brief synopsis of the proposed changes. He noted that the Master
of Digital Media changes would also need approval by the senates of Simon Fraser
University and Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and from the British Columbia
Institute of Technology's Education Council.
Approved.
Joint Admission and Curriculum Committee
See Appendix C: New Program
Dr William McKee presented on behalf of the Senate Admissions and Curriculum
committees.
William McKee }        That Senate approve the new Master of Land
Katharine Patterson an& Water Systems and its associated course.
Dr McKee explained that this new professional coursework-based degree program would
be of great use for people in the field. It has two streams and that allow for advanced and
applied degree preparation. Only one new course was proposed because the degree drew
from existing courses in the Faculty.
Amendment
By general consent, the word "candidacy" on page 14 of the proposal was
amended to read "eligibility."
Approved as
amended.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 77
Minutes of 15 February 2012
Nominating Committee
The Committee Chair, Dr Rhodri Windsor-Liscombe, presented.
Rhodri Windsor- }        That Senate approve the amendments to Policy
Liscombe #17 - Appointment of Registrar and
Joe Belanger Librarians (Joint Senate and Board Policy) as
presented; and
That Senate approve the amendments to Policy
#18 - Appointment of Designated Academic
Administrators (Joint Senate and Board Policy)
as presented.
Dr Anstee asked if Senate would reconsider its own internal rules in the future in terms of
how it selects senators to serve on these committees, particularly with reference to
appointments of faculty members.
Approved.
Student Awards Committee
See Appendix D: Awards
The Committee Chair, Dr Brian Stelck, presented.
Brian Stelck }        That Senate accept the awards as listed for
Sean Haffey January 2012 and February 2012 and forward
them to the Board of Governors for approval;
and that letters of thanks be sent to the donors.
Dr Stelck noted that these new awards represented $114 000 in new funding for students
at UBC. He reminded Senate that each $1 000 awarded required a $30 000 endowment.
He thanked the development office for its work it setting up these donations.
The Committee chair reminded senators that in recent years, donors have become more
and more particular in terms of how they want awards granted. This has sometimes put
UBC in awkward situations and his committee must be careful in this regard.
Senator Haffey asked for more details on the Chancellor's Scholar award.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 78
Minutes of 15 February 2012
Dr Stelck replied that these awards would be granted if an incoming secondary school
student had an average of 95% or above; this represents roughly 18% of our incoming
class.
Senator Baimbridge asked if the amounts granted were adjusted for inflation.
Dr Stelck replied that it depends on the terms of the award and how the economy is
doing.
Approved.
Report from the President - Restructuring of Competitive Arrangements in
Canada West and Canadian Inter-University Sport (CIS)
With the consent of Senate, in the absence of the Vice-Chair Provost Farrar assumed the
chair for this item.
The President presented on the restructuring of Canadian Inter-University Sport. He
reminded Senate that in April of last year the University decided to not proceed with an
application to join the NCAA. This decision seems to have been well made considering
recent issues. A key part of that decision was a commitment by UBC to address concerns
about CIS.
From the perspective of UBC Athletics, a main concern has been the dilution in
competition caused by the creation of many new universities. UBC is delighted that these
new institutions are thriving in many ways, but must admit that their addition has not
always been positive for athletic competition. In some key sports UBC is also now entirely
in a BC division and no longer plays against Alberta or Manitoba. This is compounded by
more than 2 000 Canadians leaving for NCAA schools to play in sports offered in
Canada.
To change CIS regulations requires a 75% vote and Ontario schools have not been
interested in changing despite Canada West and other schools such as those in Atlantic
Canada wishing to do so.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 -19
Minutes of 15 February 2012
As a result, while UBC strongly supports opportunities for inter-university competition
the level at this time is not attractive to students. The President noted that when the
University loses strong athletes it also loses multi-talented students. Our faculties' move to
broad-based admissions (BBA) shows that UBC recognizes students who are talented in
many ways. In addition, when these students are lost to other institutions, UBC also loses
multi-talented alumni who typically feel very well connected to their universities.
The CIS taskforce does not see itself as trying to compete directly with the NCAA; this
would not be possible or wise and may pervert the academic values our schools upholds.
Canadian universities say that they are committed to excellence in every field, but we
seem to have accepted a second-rate status in terms of our student athlete experience.
The taskforce will be meeting again once it receives feedback from Canada West schools.
The President issued thanks to Professor Richard Price for his work on this file.
The President highlighted a commitment to institutional choice and university autonomy.
Instead of imagining a regulatory system, the taskforce would like respective senates to
approve what is most appropriate for their institutions.
The second commitment is a want to provide the opportunity for "full-ride" scholarships.
Right now in CIS, awards are limited to tuition and part room/board. The goal here is not
to move to the NCAA model but to have proper university-level (not athletics
department) control. At present, Canadian universities are losing good students and good
athletes to Idaho or UNLV. CIS could imagine a scholarship system that allows top
athletes to be supported beyond University terms (10 or 11 months). This could be a way
for Canadian universities to compete at a high level.
Finally, CIS needs to have a connection to Own the Podium. The taskforce sees an
opportunity here to be part of a system of high-performance training so that Canadian
universities do not need to force student athletes to choose between university or
excellence in their sport. The taskforce is working with Own the Podium, and while it
does not agree with all of their proposals, it likes some of them.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-80
Minutes of 15 February 2012
The President's Office has been in consultation with many Associate Deans Students and
they have been quite supportive of the report so far. The move to BBA is seen as being
aligned with these goals.
Finally, how UBC aligns its commitments to health and wellness, intramurals, and
intervarsity is important. The University has obligations to provide for these things for
students. Parallel to these discussions UBC is having a review of the athletics department
and this provides an opportunity to consider all of these things.
The model proposed here is ambitious. The President expressed the view that the current
CIS model is unsustainable and will not exist in 10 years. This is a time of flux and the
President hopes that UBC can lead changes that are positive for this University and for
athletes across Canada.
Senator Rasmussen asked what excellence in sports meant.
The President replied that it means different things in different contexts. It can
mean simply the ability to engage in programs that enhance ones being, it can be
camaraderie, it can mean intramurals and it can mean high-performance sports
with proper support to achieve world-class performance. UBC would like all of
these choices to be available to our students.
Senator Seyednejad asked about potential sources for funding.
The President replied that extensive endowments already exist for the support of
university athletes. The University could seek to grow those funds. Another
interesting idea is to create a national scholarship system for intercollegiate sports.
This would mean a more level playing field across Canada.
A student Senator asked what sports might be the first involved in a high-performance
system.
The President replied that no decision has been made yet. Gender equity is a
fundamental principle. So far, it seems that basketball, volleyball, wrestling, and
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 81
Minutes of 15 February 2012
soccer would be the most likely. We hope that for UBC this could grow to 8 high
performance sports. At present, UBC engages in 16. There are also some
historically important sports such as rowing that have local support but are not
part of CIS.
Senator Haffey asked what the process going forward would be with regards to the
Ontario voting block.
The President assured senators that he and the other universities were working to
address this issue.
Senator Yang noted that the President wanted to expand UBC's autonomy in terms of
financing, but he asked what principles would be used given the University's limited
finances.
The President replied that the taskforce did not agree that CIS should be allowed
to set rules for member institutions; he suggested that a robust discussion of these
principles was needed at Senate. Secondly, complete transparency needed to exist
in terms of athletics awards. Finally, the president of each institution would have
to certify that the awards given were the full extent of funding.
The President re-assumed the Chair.
Reports from the Registrar
ANNUAL REPORT ON ENROLMENT 2011/2012
Dr Farrar presented the report.
The Provost noted that the provincial government funds roughly 35 000 students. This
results in around $500 000 000 in funding from the government and $300 000 000 in
tuition fees. Of those, 29 000 undergraduates are expected but UBC presently admits
close to 30 000. For students in some programs like the Doctor of Medicine or Bachelor
of Science in Pharmacy programs, the Full Time Equivalent (FTE) numbers are the same
as the headcount. For the remainder, around 27 000 students are the typical direct-entry
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 82
Minutes of 15 February 2012
undergraduate students at UBC and many of these students are not taking a full course
load, so the number of bodies vs FTE are very different.
On the graduate level, 5 800 students are funded and UBC has 8 250. Enrolment is not
actively managed at the graduate level and the University does not differentiate between
domestic and international students. About 60% of graduate students are following
research-based programs; the remainder are in professional programs. In the professional
programs faculties do admit a specific number of students. For research programs the
choices are made by individual faculty members in terms of what they can supervise and
support.
The Provost concluded by noting that his presentation so far did not cover international
undergraduate (LSI) students. In FTE numbers there are just under 4 000 at present, or 12-
13 percent of the domestic number in total. The administration is proposing to grow that
number to the target limit of 15%, or by around 1 000 students. Many of UBC's
comparator institutions were closer to 20% international and SFU is at 18%. UBC is
looking at enhanced recruitment and pathways programs to aid in international transition
beyond first year. The Provost noted that the retention rate after first year for domestic
students was 90% but it was 80% for international students.
2012/2013 ACADEMIC YEAR
The Registrar presented the proposed 2012/2013 academic year dates.
Report from the Vice-President, Students - Changes to the UBC Vancouver Non-
Academic Conduct Systems
The Vice-President, Students and the University Counsel presented.
The Counsel explained that for many years UBC had a committee that considered
academic and non-academic misconduct. This was an adversarial system that resembled a
court of law. This approach was similar to most institutions across North America. For
several years the University has been working to re-architect this system. Two years ago a
new system was introduced at the Okanagan campus and building on that system, on
February 28th a new system will be implemented for Vancouver.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 83
Minutes of 15 February 2012
As part of a new Code of Conduct, the University has constituted a new committee to
handle non-academic cases. Other than the chair, it is formed entirely of students. The
committee uses an investigative model instead of an adversarial one. A full review of the
Okanagan implementation has been conducted and adjustments have been made
accordingly. The Okanagan campus has reported that the number of incidents and gone
down significantly. Secondly, the percentage of non-academic cases that are resolved by
diversion is close to 95 percent.
The new system seems to be well regarded externally; other universities are now coming
to UBC to learn about our implementation.
There has been an extensive consultation at UBC Vancouver. The Office of the University
Counsel has received feedback from the AMS, GSS, the Associate Deans Students, Student
Development; all of the feedback received has been largely positive.
In conclusion, Mr Lai thanked Louise Cowin, Brian Sullivan and others for their work
and support on the new system for non-academic misconduct.
Senator Rasmussen asked why, given we had an academic misconduct policy and the
criminal code, do we need this policy.
Mr Lai replied that there are some activities that, while not criminal, the University
cannot tolerate. UBC admits students from a variety of backgrounds and they have
a variety of expectations. To have a Code of Conduct allows students to look at
that and validate their own views and concerns. When pressed for examples, the
University Counsel suggested drunk students committing vandalism: The
University could sue or ask for them to be prosecuted but that seems too extreme.
Our hope is for learning over punishment as students are at UBC to learn in the
classroom but also to learn about life.
The President noted that one situation common at the Okanagan campus was false fire
alarms.
Dr Baimbridge asked who was assigning the penalties in diversion situations.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 - 84
Minutes of 15 February 2012
The University Counsel replied that the student conduct manager would act as a
triaging agency. Some may be too serious, some entirely trivial, but most will fall
in between and result in a conversation and a consensual process. If an agreement
cannot be reached, the case will follow the previous/formal process.
Mr Haffey asked if this changed the appeals process.
The University Counsel assured senators that the appeals process had not changed.
In response to a question from Senator Harrison, the President agreed that the Code of
Conduct should be distributed to senators at once; the University Counsel apologized for
the oversight it in not being distributed sufficiently.
Senator Craig asked how the students on these panels would be selected.
Mr Lai replied that an open call for nominations would be used; the University
wished to have balance from a broad pool.
Senator McKee asked if it was proper for the Calendar to change without reference to
Senate.
Associate Registrar Eaton replied that his office has always allowed the University
Counsel to submit changes to student discipline content on behalf of the President,
given the President's statutory powers over student discipline.
In response to a question from Senator Ahmed, the University Counsel replied that the
Code of Conduct would apply to students off campus if their activities were related to
their student status. As an example he cited varsity athletes travelling for an away game.
Senator Vessey was given assurance from Mr Lai that Student Housing and Hospitality
Services was consulted on the proposal; they have a member on the steering committee for
the new system.
