Call to Order
The President called the fourth meeting of the Vancouver Senate for the 2013/2014 academic
year to order.
Senate Membership
The Registrar recognized the appointment of Dr Susan Porter as Dean of the Faculty of Graduate
and Postdoctoral Studies. Dr Porter had previously been Dean Pro Tem. of the Faculty.
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
Lance Rucker }        That the Minutes of the Meeting of 20 November
Andre Ivanov 2013 be adopted as presented.
Vol. 2013/14 - 4* Meeting - Page 1
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-4-2
Minutes of 18 December 2013
Business Rising from the Minutes
The Registrar presented a report on the recent loint Faculties election to Senate. She noted that
the practice for many years had been to extend the nomination period in the event of insufficient
nominations and that this had been done in the past election, but that she was open to a reexamination of this practice for the future and that she would request that the Council of Senates
Elections Committee take the issue of the extension regulation under consideration.
Dr Anstee expressed his view that the regulations should be interpreted to allow for
extensions only in the case of extraordinary circumstances beyond our control, and not to
address insufficient nominations. He suggested that past practice should not be binding as
the elections regulations were revised every three years. He further noted his concern
over the lack of interest in these positions from Faculty Members and asked that UBC
review its elections activities to try to encourage more nominations and a more collegial
faculty at UBC that was more interested in the work of Senate.
Remarks from the Chair
Professor Toope announced that the Board of Governors had approved the reappointment of
Pierre Ouillet as Vice-President Finance, Resources & Operations. The President opined that Mr.
Ouillet had emerged as one of Canada's leading university vice-presidents finance.
The President referenced that the Canadian Council of Chief Executives issued a report related to
jobs training and jobs readiness in response to a recent survey it conducted. He noted that one of
the questions asked to Canadian chief executives was what mattered when evaluating new hires,
and that the responses contracted political imperatives at both the provincial and federal levels as
"industry-specific knowledge and experience" were less preferred to people skills,
communication skills, problem solving skills, analytical skills, and leadership skills.
In response to the further discussion around athletics, the President advised that he had decided
in conjunction with the Vice-President Students and the Athletics Director to add two more
alumni representatives to the review committee previously announced. Professor Toope noted
that concerns were raised regarding the process being protracted out and causing uncertainty, and
that UBC was trying expedite the process for teams that clearly meet the established criteria so
that they would have certainty by mid-Ianuary; where there is uncertainty the next four to six
weeks will be used to allow sports to work with advisors before the final decision is made at the
end of February. Finally, the President confirmed that UBC was not planning to suspend its
support for the Millennium breakfast as suggested by the press.
Admissions Committee
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-4-3
Minutes of 18 December 2013
Robert Sparks }        That Senate amend the resolution previously
Michael Coughtrie adopted on 20 November 2013 on admission
requirements for applicants to the Bachelor of
Pharmacy program, for entry to the 2015 Winter
Session and thereafter, in lieu of the 2014 Winter
Senator Sparks advised that the earlier applicable date for this change was a clerical error; the
intent was to give an additional year's notice for the change. He further responded to the
question raised at the previous meeting regarding the Pharmacy College Admissions Test
(PCAT) by informing Senate that currently admission was weighted 40% to the PCAT and 60%
to an applicant's grades; with the change made last meeting, 50% will now been on core courses
and the other 50% will be on the last 30 credits attempted. These marks will be taken into
consideration along with Broad-Based Admission scores.
Curriculum Committee
Dr Santokh Singh presented on behalf of Dr Peter Marshall, Chair of the Senate Curriculum
See Appendix A: Curriculum Report
Santokh Singh } That the new and revised courses and programs
Peter Leung brought forward by the faculties of Applied Science,
Arts, Forestry, Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies
(Applied Science), land and Food Systems, law, and
Science be approved.
Dr Singh led the Senate through each of the curriculum proposals.
Noting its abundance of new courses, Senator Vessey mentioned that this was the 50th
anniversary of the Creative Writing program and reminded Senate of its success.
Senator Loewen suggested that Forestry's rationales for not allowing credit/d/fail in its proposed
courses were not particularly compelling.
The presenter agreed to ask the Committee to take this matter under advisement.
Senator Anstee asked if the Writing courses proposed were accepted by the Ministry of
Education for those who wished to become teachers.
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-4-4
Minutes of 18 December 2013
Senator Harrison advised that both the Ministry of Education and our own Faculty of
Medicine had yet to recognize these communication courses as meeting their English
requirements, but that the Faculty was in discussions with both groups.
Student Awards Committee
Dr Andre Ivanov presented on behalf of Dr Sue Grayston, Chair of the Student Awards
See Appendix B: Awards Report
Andre Ivanov } That Senate accept the awards as listed and
Rhodri Windsor-Liscombe forward them to the Board of Governors for
approval; and that letters of thanks be sent to
the donors.

 Vancouver Senate 13/14-4-5
Minutes of 18 December 2013
Report from the Librarian
Dr Parent presented highlights of the report distributed. She thanked the Members of the Senate
Library Committee, and especially its chair, Senator Vessey, for his passion for the Library. She
also thanked Senator Farrar for his interest and to her Library staff for their support and work
over the past year.
The Librarian noted that UBC now had over 7 million volumes, 1.5 million of which were e-
books; 70 000 new printed books were added this year. She advised that 75% of the library's
budget was now spent on licencing or buying electronic resources and that loan numbers for
physical books continue to decline while 13 million e-books or journals were downloaded last
Dr Parent advised that the Library received a 2% increase in its collections budget on an ongoing
and incremental basis in light of increasing costs: we are now ranked #14 for North American
libraries, 2nd in Canada after Toronto. The University of Toronto was ranked #3 in North
America; the Librarian noted that Library rankings are based on investments, from both the
University and community.
Looking ahead, the library is focusing on flexible learning. We are developing a Local Online
Open Course (LOOC) on digital literacy in conjunction with the Faculty of Education.
Participants can focus on different aspects of digital literacy depending on their interests and
UBC uses its investments in rare and special collections to distinguish itself from other libraries.
This helps us support teaching and research but also sets us apart. Many of these collections are
being digitized. Our focus is on the history of British Columbia as we view this as our
responsibility. The Library also tries to distinguish itself through the international access rates for
its collection, with 26% of our visitors international.
The Library advised that we were working to reimagine library spaces, and this will be a focus
for libraries around the world as many are moving in interesting directions. Students value
library spaces and would like to have more study space, as indicated by both NSSE studies and
the student senators' feedback. Quiet study space is a very high priority.
The Library is refurbishing many libraries. Service points are being consolidated for convenience
and we are offering some programs in partnership with other units. We are looking at turning
floors 4 and 5 of the Koerner Library into more useful student space.
The Asian Library needs substantial renovation, as does Woodward. We can make these spaces
both more usable and friendly.
The Library's major building project is the Library Preservation Archives (PARC@UBC / LP A).
We are consulting now with all faculties and departments to see what parts of the collection
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-4-6
Minutes of 18 December 2013
should stay in our core locations and what should be moved to the LPA. We plan for this facility
to be open by early 2015.
Finally, the Librarian noted that all institutions were going through many changes and
disruptions at present. The International Federation of Library Associations has a trend report.
The following points were highlighted:
1) New technology will both expand and limit who has access to information.
2) Online education will transform and disrupt traditional learning.
3) The boundaries of data protection and privacy will be redefined.
4) Hyper-connected societies will listen to empower new groups.
5) The global information economy will be transformed by new technologies.
For libraries, these changes are forcing us to consider our relevance.
The President noted that the library world was one that had shifted dramatically in our society.
Colleagues are constantly adjusting both their roles and their spaces. The President described our
improvement in rankings as a testament to the library staff s hard work.
The President reminded Senate that the University of Toronto had now joined UBC and others in
withdrawing from Access Copyright.
Dr Parent presented the statement in furtherance to the presentation made at the previous meeting
of Senate
Ingrid Parent } Whereas:
