Remarks from the Chair
The President and Chair of the Senate, Professor Santa J. Ono announced a major new faculty
hiring program: the President's Academic Excellence Initiative (PAEI), which will be the largest
recruitment of faculty in the history of UBC. Dr Ono advised that this would be achieved
through a targeted increase in the UBC professoriate through new positions over the period to
fiscal 2026/27. This is in addition to necessary annual hiring to replace retirements and general
attrition at both campuses over the 7 years of the PAEI. The President suggested that the PAEI
will align with our Strategic Plan, investing in UBC, setting out the opportunity and translating
UBC's vision into action. This Initiative also reflects our commitment to supporting the
university's transformative learning environment, providing students with an educational
experience that is among the best in the world. Additional faculty and well-supported graduate
students contribute to the teaching mission of the university for the benefit of all students.
Dr Ono mentioned that earlier this month he was thrilled to participate in the Imagine and Create
orientation events at UBC's Vancouver and Okanagan campuses on September 3. At the
orientation events, Dr Ono said he announced that the Blue & Gold Campaign has raised $100
million for student and that we have now doubled the campaign goal to $200 million.
The President stated that he was deeply honoured that the Government of Canada has appointed
me to the Fulbright Canada Board of Directors. The Fulbright Foundation is a binational, treaty-
based, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization with a mandate to identify the best and
brightest minds in both countries and engage them in residential academic exchange. The Board
2019-01-2
 UBC       THE   UNIVERSITY OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA Officeof the Senate

consists of 20 volunteer members who each sit for a three-year term. Ten members are citizens
of the United States and appointed by the US Ambassador to Canada, and ten are Canadian
citizens appointed by the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs. This program has seen 59
Fulbright alumni win the Nobel Prize and another 82 win the Pulitzer Prize.
Dr Ono informed Senate that earlier this week saw the official book launch for UBC: The Next
Century, written by Tyee Bridge and published by Figure 1 Press. The book provides a look at
UBC today, while celebrating the accomplishments of its people - its graduates, students, faculty,
staff and supporters. UBC: The Next Century is available at the UBC Bookstore and other major
bookstores.
UBC is hosting the Association of Pacific Rim Universities Senior International Leaders
Meeting. The senior executives of 38 universities from 17 countries have gathered to discuss the
theme of Advancing a lust, Sustainable, and Prosperous World: University Impact and the UN
Sustainable Development Goals (a theme I also addressed recently in Times Higher Education.)
In particular, we will discuss student mobility in relation to the SDGS, and how the APRU can
contribute to the common good in the Asia-Pacific Region.
The President noted that on the following day, UBC would open the Exchange student residence.
The new residence houses 651 students, as we continue to fulfil our commitment to provide
affordable housing for students, faculty and staff. The Exchange Residence also features two
additional first year commuter student collegia; a home away from home for students who get
here by bus, by bike or by car.
Dr Ono noted that The University of British Columbia continues to be recognized on the world
stage, improving its ranking by three spots to 34th globally in the latest Times Higher Education
World University Rankings, released today. UBC's result is even more impressive in 2019
because THE World University Rankings includes more institutions than ever before -1,396
across 92 countries and regions, up from 1,258 universities across 86 territories last year. Against
this backdrop, UBC places in the top 2.5 per cent of universities ranked globally. UBC had also
moved up eight spots in the ARWU Academic Ranking of World Universities, from 43 to 35.
The President said that he was proud of both UBC's global reputation, and of our amazing
faculty, students and staff who have made us among the best in the world.
The President concluded by noting that he would be presenting to Musqueam a plaque
commemorating our Statement of Apology that he made on behalf of UBC to residential
school survivors in April 2018.
Senator Thachuk asked what stream the PAEI appointments would be in: research or educational
leadership.
Dr Ono said that there was a working group of governors, senators, and administrators
that had been established to determine what numbers in each rank and stream; he
expected a significant number will be in the research stream but it will not be exclusively
2019-01-3

w
in that stream. He committed to providing regular updates to the Senate as this became
clearer. The President suggested that we needed a diverse group of stakeholders involved
in these conversations because even if we liberate funds to create new faculty hiring
lines, success depends on having the necessary infrastructure to support those positions as
well.
Senator Loewen said that it was exciting to hear of a targeted increase in PAEI. In terms of
infrastructure, he suggested that in addition to office and laboratory space, another issue is
childcare space.
Dr Ono said that there was an announcement earlier this week of a new provincial
investment in childcare on campus from the province. This was around $3 million. UBC
was already the largest childcare program in North America, but even with that there is
more need that needs to be met.
Senator Holmes commended the President for the PAEI initiative, and especially the inclusion of
graduate student and postgraduate students.
Senator Tees said that UBC Vancouver brought a lot of things to UBC Okanagan and that the
collegium system was a good example of cross- fertilization back from Okanagan to Vancouver.
Senator Singh said that PAEI initiative was timely. He asked if we would also look at the
Educational Leadership stream who contribute to the university.
Dr Ono said he valued tremendously the contribution of those who lead and excel at
teaching. The working group is looking into what the mix should be. He will take this
feedback to the working group.

MEMORIAL MINUTES FOR DRS HOLLING AND RESTREPO
Professor C. S. "Buzz" Holling
Dr. Crawford Stanley Holling, OC, FRSC, passed away on 16 August, 2019. Dr. "Buzz" Holling
received his BA and MSc from the University of Toronto before finishing his PhD at the
University of British Columbia in 1957. He worked for the Federal Government in both Ontario
and British Columbia before joining the University as a Professor of Zoology in 1967. He
served as a UBC Senator representing the loint Faculties from 1969 to 1972. Dr. Holling served
as the Director of the Institute of Resource Ecology at the UBC, as well as of the International
Institute of Applied Systems Analysis in Vienna. He later served as the Arthur R. Marshall Ir.
Chair in Ecological Sciences in the Department of Zoology University of Florida until his
retirement in 1999.
Born on December 6th 1930 in New York State to Canadian parents, Dr. Holling was raised in
Northern Ontario. There, as a teenager, he was a member of the Royal Ontario Museum's
Toronto lunior Field Naturalists which was one of the first steps which led him to a career
focused on nature. His early research focused on analysis of ecological processes, specifically
the dynamics of predator/prey relationships. Later in his academic career his research focus
shifted toward the theoretical and applied aspects of ecological systems and ecological policy as
well as adaptive environmental assessment and management. The aim of his research was to
blend the concepts of systems theory and ecology with simulation modelling and policy analysis.

Dr. Holling received many honours and awards in his lifetime. In 1966, he was awarded the
Mercer Award from the Ecological Society of America and received an Eminent Ecologist
Award in 1999. In 1970 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in Animal
Biology. He received honourary Doctorates in Science from the University of Guelph in 1998,
UBC in 2007, and Simon Fraser University in 2011. In 2008, he was awarded the Volvo
Environmental Prize. In 2009, Dr. Holling was named an Officer of the Order of Canada for his
pioneering contributions to the field of ecology, notably for his work on ecosystem dynamics,
resilience theory and ecological economics.
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer their
condolences and thanks.
Dr. Rodrigo Alvaro Restrepo
Dr. Rodrigo Alvaro Restrepo was born in Medellin, Colombia, on November 6, 1930. He earned
a BA at Lehigh University in 1951, and then a PhD at Caltech in 1955. Dr. Restrepo passed
away on May 8, 2019.
After briefly serving as a research fellow at Caltech, Dr. Restrepo joined the University of
British Columbia as a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics in 1956. He rose steadily
through the ranks, earning promotion to Professor in 1968. Collaborator Robert D. Cooter recalls
that, "As a scholar, he was unusually thoughtful and broad in an age of specialization."
During his time at UBC, Professor Restrepo's undergraduate teaching earned exceptionally
favourable reviews. He served the Department and the University actively throughout his
appointment, including committee work that laid the foundations of the Department's democratic
heritage. He also served on the University Senate as a representative of the loint Faculties from
1969 to 1975. He retired from UBC in 1995. His early work in the area of game theory remains
relevant today, having been the subject of explorations by Dr. leremy Kun of Google earlier this
year.
Beyond the academy, Dr. Restrepo was known to his many friends as collector and a generous
supporter of the arts. He collected works by local artists and made donations that helped the
Vancouver Art Gallery fill key gaps in its collection of historical Canadian paintings. Dr.
Restrepo's friends remember him as thoughtful, dignified, and gracious—a true gentleman,
whose presence enriched their lives.
To his family and friends, the Senate and the University of British Columbia offer their
condolences and thanks.
Anne Murphy }        That Senate approve the Memorial Minutes for
Philip Loewen Drs. Crawford Stanley Holling and Rodrigo A.
Restrepo, that they be entered into the Minutes of
Senate, and that copies be sent to the families of
the deceased.

TRIENNIAL REVIEW
Dr Tees noted that as Senators will be aware, Rule 26(g) of the Rules and Procedures of Senate
directs that "the Nominating Committee shall review the terms of reference of Senate
committees in the third year of each Senate triennium." Traditionally, the membership and rules
of the Senate are also reviewed concurrently, in concert with the Senate Agenda Committee. This
being the start of the third year of this triennium, he advised that the Nominating committee is
undertaking this processes and will reach out to senate committees, senators, and other interested
groups to seek their feedback prior to making recommendations to the Senate in the spring. As in
the past, an open invitation will also be made on the Senate website so that any member of the
University community may submit comments, questions, or concerns for consideration in this
process.
Senator Isaacson suggested that while we have open calls for all committees that the nominating
committee be more proactive about substantive changes. He said that the Committee might set a
timelines to address questions.
Dr Tees said that could be useful. He noted suggestions made already around balancing
out committee workloads, and potentially shrinking or merging committees or having
them meet on a different pattern. There was a lot of information available on the Senate
website to help inform suggestions. He noted that if we do not receive suggestions then
they would direct Mr Eaton to send the usual irate letters to Committee chairs.
Senator Singh asked if equity and inclusion could be considered under such a review.
Dr Tees noted that Senate had its own Ad Hoc Committee on Academic Diversity and
Inclusion on this topic and there were others within the administration that he expected
would be providing comments.

Senator Murphy said that the Ad Hoc Committee would like to work with each of the
committees about equity and inclusion.
Senator Tees suggested that a document from the Ad Hoc Committee that other
committees could use to assess their own work would be a good start.
Report from the Provost
The Vice-President Academic and Provost, Dr Andrew Szeri, presented.
TIMELINES FOR PARALLEL PROCESSES.
The Provost advised that a New Programs Hub has been established in the Office of the Vice-
President Academic to act as a 'single front door' to support Faculties and proponents in all
aspects of new program development and approval processes. As part of their work, they have
looked at alignment of approval workflows through the various sub-committees ahead of Senate
and Board approval. To enable a reduction of between 2 to 5 months in the approvals process the
Board of Governors has agreed to consider proposals in parallel with the Senate rather than in
serial, and thus new programs approval paperwork may be submitted into the Board process
pending approval of the curriculum at a full Senate meeting.
VICE-PROVOST AND ASSOCIATE VICE-PRESIDENT ACADEMIC SEARCH
The Provost noted that there had been little interest in serving on the search committee for this
position. He advised that a new broadcast email would be issued tomorrow to solicit faculty and
student interest in joining the group.
Other Business
Senator Ahmed asked for an update at the next meeting on the faculty compliment in the School
of Biomedical Engineering.
The President noted that the Faculty had recently tweeted out a number of successful
hires.
Dean Olson said the School was on the right trajectory to have its full compliment.
Adjournment
Seeing no other business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:46 pm.
