Chair's remarks and related questions
Chair's remarks and related questions
The Chair addressed the issue of the Federal Budget and its implications for the
university. The Federal transfer payments to the provinces will include both health care
funding and post secondary funding in a "single envelope." Although the exact provincial
grant will not be known until after the budget is announced on March 28, an anticipated
zero percent increase, with no allocation to public sector institutions for the purpose of
salary increases, will have a dramatic effect on the university. The Chair stated that
serious implications will unfold with the 96-97 budget when the province assesses and
prioritizes its remaining share of the shrinking "envelope."
Federal cuts to Canada's research granting agencies will also have a negative impact on
UBC. Over the next three years, the Medical Research Council (MRC) budget will be
reduced by 12%, and the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
funding will be reduced by 14%.
Reports of Committees of Senate
ACADEMIC BUILDING NEEDS COMMITTEE
Professor Quayle, chair of the committee, presented the following report:
SENATE ACADEMIC BUILDING NEEDS COMMITTEE - REPORT (1993-94)
This report documents the responsibilities of the Senate Academic Building Needs
Committee (SABN), summarizes the 1990 report to Senate and status of
recommendations, and outlines new recommendations based on the current activities
of the SABN.
The major responsibilities of the Senate Academic Building Needs Committee (SABN)
as noted in the April, 1994 minutes of Senate are to:
(1) monitor the implementation of the Campus Plan;
(2) annually review all building project priorities;
 Vancouver Senate 11040
Minutes of March 22,1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
(3) recommend priorities on new academic buildings with considerationfor the
needs of academic and non-academic buildings, balance of types of teaching
spaces and relationship to physical plant and planning; and
(4) review the impact of every development, whether building or landscape, on the
total teaching and academic resource.
SABN: 1990 Background
In April, 1990, the SABN reported to Senate on the redefinition of, and SABN's role
in, Campus Planning and Development responsibilities. The report noted that in
November 1989 the President reactivated his Advisory Committee on Space Allocation
(PACSA). PACSA's new membership included all members of the SABN, and
representatives from campus academic and service units. New terms of reference made
it possible to request information from Campus Planning and Development and to
more directly advise the Administration, and also to more effectively meet Senate
concerns and responsibilities. Of interest to our present context, the 1990 report made
several recommendations.
A. that the President report on the need to develop and maintain a current
inventory of requests for additional space for academic units and functions; this
should be accompanied by planning standards for space formula and space
quality.
B. that the President prepare a policy for the siting of the new buildings and that it
be tabled in Senate.
C. that the President bring to Senate a report on classroom inventories, current
needs and future plans.
D. that a report on the quality of teaching space and the strategies for maintenance
be made available to Senate.
E. that the Vice President, Academic and Provost take steps to respond to the
Graduate Expansion initiative which clearly has space implications such as
different space needs than undergraduates.
Extensive work has taken place in response to recommendations A, C and D through
the President's Committee on Teaching Space and the current Classroom Master Plan
process. Work includes, but is not confined to, a space inventory data base, an annual
facilities inventory analysis, an analysis of classroom utilization, and faculty master
plans. These initiatives mainly
 Vancouver Senate 11041
Minutes of March 22,1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
encompass space for teaching activities and functions. Recommendation B was
addressed by the initiation of the Campus Planning Process. Recommendation E has
been addressed by the Master Plan for the Faculty of Graduate Studies for the units
that report directly to this Faculty. Graduate needs are also identified in each Faculty
Master Plan and space is provided where possible. However, adequate space for
graduate students remains problematic.
SABN: 1993-94
Since the beginning of this session of Senate in September 1993, the SABN has been
more involved in PACSA, including having the chair of SABN sit as the Vice-Chair of
PACSA. This has meant that the Chair of SABN has contributed to constructing the
agenda for PACSA, to determining topics for consideration and procedures by which
that consideration will take place. SABN has also responded to a request to provide
information in the current review of Campus Planning and Development. A more
detailed summary of recent activities and recommendations follows, organized in
accordance with the SABN's terms of reference:
1.   Monitor the implementation of the Campus Plan
The members of SABN, as part of PACSA, are commenting on the U.B.C. Land Use
and Development Objectives as prepared by the university administration. SABN will
also be involved in the process of developing an Official Community Plan with the
G.V.R.D. We are emphasizing the importance of progressive and open planning,
design and implementation based on a clearly articulated vision. We are stressing a
principled approach:
(1) keep the academic mandate in clear focus;
(2) develop an ecological, environmentally responsible infrastructure; and,
(3) take a flexible, incremental and fine-grained, rather than mega-block, approach
to building.
Our committee is especially interested in the issue of market housing on campus and
the need to develop a clear vision for the campus community through generating and
assessing various options. The committee, likely reflecting the university community as
a whole, is not unanimous in its support of community development on campus.
However, those in support wish to emphasize the need for a mixed-use community
and for diverse housing that responds to a variety of income levels.
 Vancouver Senate 11042
Minutes of March 22,1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
RECOMMENDATION A:
That the President commit the University to an open planning process which will
build trust within the university community and with our neighbours. This process
should embody the principles of academic priority and ecological and environmentally
responsible infrastructure. Most importantly, the process must include the articulation
of a clear vision for the campus community as a whole.
2. Annual review of all building project priorities
As part of PACSA, the SABN is involved in reviewing all building priorities. However,
the process of setting priorities is not entirely clear. The capital building program now
underway is still chiefly addressing the priorities established many years ago, although
it has been accelerated and supplemented by success in fund raising. Benefactors will
increasingly be the life-blood of a vital academic institution, however we need to
improve the process and discussion so that it is well informed by the academic,
community and infrastructure objectives of the university. As faculty master plans are
completed, it will be possible to examine the overall academic objectives of the campus
and develop a priority review system. We are concerned about our accountability to
Senate and members of the university community for general university buildings and
for academic building needs in particular.
RECOMMENDATION B:
That the President articulate the process by which both general building and academic
building priorities should be reviewed, considering academic, community and
infrastructure objectives, and funding opportunities. The SABN should play an active
role in that process, specific to their mandate from Senate.
3. Recommend priorities on new academic buildings, considering needs of academic
and non-academic buildings
The SABN is also concerned about the general operation of the campus "plant" such
as building heating, electricity and waste management. As part of the objective of
being an environmentally responsible institution and accountable citizen, much more
attention should be paid to the "hidden" infrastructure that is required to support the
campus, which is in fact larger than many small cities. For example, there are models
where "community amenity contributions" or "development cost charges" are levied
on each development to cover these "hidden" costs.
 Vancouver Senate 11043
Minutes of March 22,1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
RECOMMENDATION C:
That the President develop a strategy for:
a) the funding of essential Campus infrastructure such as power plants and other
"hidden systems" with a view towards an environmentally responsible
approach to providing energy to the Campus;
b) the funding of continued operations and maintenance of the campus building
and landscape inventory; and
c) the funding of the campus "public realm" — the framework for the experience
of the campus for pedestrians and cyclists.
4.   Review the impact of every development, building or landscape, on the total
teaching and academic resource
This particular responsibility is an ongoing process and is intimately tied to the
priority process and to the monitoring of the campus plan. We will endeavour to
report more frequently to Senate about the projects that have been approved with an
evaluation from the point of view of the teaching and academic objectives. The
Committee will request the assistance of Campus Planning and Development in
creating a "checklist" for use in reviewing developments and proposes to bring such as
list to Senate for approval in the near future.
The Committee wishes to express its appreciation for the continued support of
Campus Planning and Development in providing up-to-date information which
informs our deliberations.
Prof. Quayle l        That the report of the Academic Building
Mr. Woo j        Needs Committee be approved.
Carried.
Professor Quayle summarized the report stating that the recommendations centre around
the Academic Building Needs Committee's mandate and focuses on the need, especially
after moving into the planning process with the greater Vancouver Regional District, to
develop an official community plan and campus development plan. The committee will
work closely with Campus Planning and

Development in creating a "checklist" for use in reviewing developments and proposes to
bring the list to Senate for approval.
Professor Quayle thanked both Campus Planning and Development and the President's
Advisory Committee for their assistance and support. Appreciation was expressed to Dr.
Birch, chair of the President's Advisory Committee on Space Allocation and members of
the Academic Building Needs Committee for assisting in the report.
Dr. Will stated that he was glad to see the Senate Academic Building Needs Committee
was again busy. He felt that its participation with the the President's Advisory Committee
on Space Allocation does allow it to be heard on matters covered in the recommendations
brought to Senate. He wondered, however, whether their efforts might not be more
effective if they focussed on the need for academic and research space, which was the
primary business of the Senate Academic Building Needs Committee, rather than on the
broader issues of infrastructure and campus planning. The Senate Academic Building
Needs Committee is Senate's voice on the President's Advisory Committee, and as such
should be concerned with the adequacy of academic space.
Responding to Dr. Will's question, Dr. Sherrill Grace pointed out that the Senate
Academic Building Committee's understanding was that the "hidden" infrastructure such
as heating, electricity and waste management were in extremely poor repair and
inadequate. If those systems fail it would be "academic to talk about academic space."

ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE
Enrolment Quotas for 1995-96 (see Appendix A)
Dr. Will, chair of the committee, presented the following report noting that, subject to the
final budget, the Faculty of Arts 1st year quota should be 1500 and that for the 3rd & 4th
years should be 350.
Dr. Will stated that the higher quotas in Arts are not likely to result in an increase in
students. This year the enrolment, as measured by FTE's in Arts, was below that predicted
by approved quotas for a number of reasons:
1. a number of students who accepted and paid the required deposit did not
register,
2. students, to an increasing extent, took less than a full load, thus deciding to
take longer than four years to complete their degrees, and
3. a drop off in 4th year enrolment due to a reduction in transfer admissions to
2nd year in 1992/93.
Implementation of the central registration system in 1996 should eliminate the
phenomenon of students registering in more than one university, which may have
accounted for the large number of "no shows" this year.
Family and Nutritional Sciences has historically had a global quota for programs in Home
Economics and Dietetics. Since the program in Dietetics has no courses in the first year,
consideration is being given to eliminating the first year of the Dietetics program, which
would mean admitting the great majority of their students into what is now their 2nd
year, after having completed 30 credits of post-secondary education at UBC or another
institution. Anticipating that possibility, the quota of only 5 or 10 for direct admission
into 1st year Dietetics in 1995/96 will allow space for the admission by transfer of a large
number of students from both UBC and the colleges into the Dietetics program in
1996/97.
 Vancouver Senate 11046
Minutes of March 22,1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
A new quota of 20 for the Faculty of Forestry's Wood Science and Industry program,
separate from the Faculty's other quotas, will hopefully increase the qualified students
entering this program.
The reduced quota for the B.S.W. degree in the School of Social Work reflects the
School's evolving role at the graduate level and a shift away from the B.S.W., which is
offered at other institutions in the province, in favour of an expanded M.S.W. program.
The Faculty of Applied Science has indicated that they may bring forward an amendment
to the April Senate requesting an increase in their quotas relating to the B.A.Sc. program.
Dr. Will l        That the quotas (listed in Appendix A) be
Dean Marchak i        approved, with the exception of the School of
Nursing.
Carried.
Dr. Will noted that the recommended quota for the School of Nursing (160) had to be
revised in light of the forthcoming termination of the partnership established in 1989-
1990 between the School of Nursing and Vancouver General Hospital. He called on Dr.
Birch to explain to Senate the implications of the termination of the partnership both for
UBC and for admissions into Nursing.
Dr. Birch stated that when the Vancouver General Hospital, one of the last hospital-based
Schools of Nursing in Canada, entered into an agreement with the
 Vancouver Senate 11047
Minutes of March 22,1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
University, entry into the first year of the BSN program doubled from 80 students to 160.
Vancouver General Hospital, now known as Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences
Centre, provides a strongly clinically-oriented staff who are integrated with UBC's faculty.
The large number of RN, BSN and similar degree programs in the province, as well as the
tremendous readjustment of our health care system, were factors in the recent decision to
redeploy the resources from education into clinical care.
The decision by Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre to separate from the
agreement with UBC was hastened by the accord in the health care system whereby
people are assured of continuity of employment, given certain circumstances. The timing
of the transition is very important to people who are both instructors or faculty members,
and members of the staff of the Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre because
unless the transition is made relatively soon they will be excluded from the accord and
become more vulnerable than they would otherwise be in relation to their expertise or
years of training and their years of experience.
The University's concern is to fulfill all commitments to the students already in the
program and to ensure that the quality of their experience is not compromised in any way
while making an adjustment to accommodate what will be significantly reduced
resources. Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre is committed
 Vancouver Senate 11048
Minutes of March 22,1995	
Reports of Committees of Senate
to continue their involvement with the second, third and fourth years of the program but
are very clear that the separation must begin immediately. The School of Nursing's
increased enrolment at the Masters level and implementation of a Ph.D. program has
meant that during the period since the collaborative program began their graduate
enrolment has increased from 40 to more than 100. Dr. Birch stated that following a
review of the alternatives with the Dean of Applied Science and the Director of the School
of Nursing, it was agreed to recommend a return to the quota that was in place prior to
collaborative agreement with Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre.
Dr. Birch i        That a quota be established for first year in the
Professor Rice i        School of Nursing BSN program of 80
students rather than 160.
Carried.
Dr. Birch noted that there are members of the School of Nursing on Senate and that the
director of the School, Dr. Katharyn May, was present in the gallery to answer questions.
Student Exchange Programs
Dr. Will presented the following list of student exchange programs for approval, noting
that Lincoln University in New Zealand (Canterbury) is restricted to the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences. More institutions included for the sole benefit of a particular
Faculty or program may be included in the future.

COMMITTEE ON STUDENT AWARDS
New Awards (see Appendix B)
Dr. Cook drew Senate's attention to the Fritz Lehmann Memorial Prize in History, noting
that Mr. Lehmann had been a long time employee and professor at UBC.
Change in Awards Description and Notice of Amendment to Endowed Award
The Sopron Alumni Fellowship was first presented to Senate last September when it was
referred back for clarification.
In response to a question, Dr. Cook replied that the donors' intent was to award the
fellowship on the advice of the Faculty of Graduate Studies even if there was not an
Hungarian student enroled in Forestry and Wood Science.
It was pointed out that the money will eventually run out because $13,500 is more than
the interest on the capital provides. Dr. Cook replied that the intention was that this
would be an endowed award which means that it will go on in perpetuity and that the
donors may hold further fund raising events in the future.
Dr. Cook noted that the Scudamore award had been changed from a bursary to a
scholarship.

Dr. Vanderstoep noted that there is a great deal of activity under the umbrella of
Continuing Studies and that these activities serve the University well in fulfilling its
mission. He drew attention to the fact that the Continuing Studies divisions, through
various faculties and schools on campus will be increasingly involved in the formation
and delivery of certificate and diploma programs. Also, a trend seen over the last two
years shows significant growth in enrolment numbers in courses offered by the
Continuing Studies, Credit Division which now includes both the office of Extra Sessional
Studies and Guided Independent Study. The Faculty of Education Distance Education
Office is now delivering a few credit courses to teachers using multimedia technology. Dr.
Vanderstoep also drew attention to the Continuing Professional Education summaries
listed on pages 19-31 which were undertaken by the Faculty and units within the
Faculty.

1995/96 Calendar, editorial changes
1995/96 Calendar, editorial changes
The Registrar presented the following editorial changes for information, to ensure that
there is a record of all changes to the General Academic Regulations section of the
Calendar.
1. Other Applicant Types, Senior Citizens (page 24) The words in italics have
been added to the first sentence:
"B. C. residents who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents aged 65
years or over, who are eligible for admission to the University may enrol in
credit courses without payment of tuition fees (see Fees section)."
Only Canadian citizens and permanent residents qualify for this exemption
from fees. A new item has been added to the Fees section to clarify which fees
and programs are covered.
2. Attendance (page 30) The third paragraph reads:
"Students who because of illness are absent from a December or April exam
must submit a statement of illness, obtained from a doctor, to the Student
Health Service as promptly as possible."
This paragraph is incorrect and has been deleted. The procedure it describes
was amended last year when changes were made to the procedure for academic
concession. The procedure to be followed by students who miss examinations
as a result of medical, emotional or other problems is given in Academic
Concession (page 30) and referenced in Examinations (page 31). The procedure
is also given in Routine regarding Absence due to Sickness and Injury in the
section The Student Health Service on page 42.
3. Examinations (page 31) The third paragraph was printed in error in the
1994/95 Calendar. It should have been deleted and replaced by the fourth
paragraph. Both paragraphs begin:
"Other tests are held at the discretion of the instructors and Faculties
concerned."
4. Canadian Exchange Programs (page 33) The last sentence was omitted from
the new Calendar entry approved by Senate in January 1995. This sentence has
been added:
"Students must register in the appropriate non-credit activity ("GOTSEP"
or "CUSEC") at The University of British Columbia in each term of study
in which they are studying away from UBC."

5.  Affiliated Theological Colleges (page 53)
Statute of the Senate of the University of British Columbia
Affiliation of Theological Colleges
January 18,1978.
The present Calendar entry sets out in full the Statute passed by Senate in
January, 1978. This entry will be deleted and replaced with the following
proposed Calendar statement included for information in the report adopted by
Senate in 1978:
"The University Act, section 81 (1) states that the "... university shall be
non-sectarian .... in principle," and section 81 (2), that "Notwithstanding
subsection (1), a theological college incorporated in the Province may be
affiliated with a university under a resolution or order made by Senate in
that behalf and approved by the board..." An affiliated college has the right
to representation of one member on the University Senate."
The granting of affiliation means that the college meets the criteria for
affiliation established by the Senate of the University of British Columbia but
does not imply any scrutiny or approval of the course offerings of the affiliate
by the University Senate.
The Registrar stated that the 1995196 Calendar will contain advertising and was "not
sure everyone will be pleased to see that." The advertising, however, will help defray
publication costs which exceed $100,000 a year. The Calendar will be available on CD
ROM and on View UBC through the Internet. Both media permit searches on the full text
of the Calendar.

Mr. Woo thanked the student senators for whom this was their last meeting.
The President echoed Mr. Woo's appreciation for the students' valuable contribution to
Senate and requested that the student senators remain on their respective committees until
they are replaced.
