Minutes of the Previous Meeting

Katharine Patterson
2012 be adopted as presented.
Approved.
Remarks from the Chair
Professor Toope acknowledged the death this week of a great friend of UBC and great
British Columbian and Canadian, Dr Ike Barber. Dr Barber took enormous pride in the
building in which we are meeting and great pleasure in meeting the students who use it.
With reference to the potential Teaching Assistant job action during examinations, the
President informed Senate that UBC applied for a mediator with the Labour Relations
Board and one had been appointed. Mediation has been called upon for negotiations with
CUPE 2278 regularly in the past. Mediator Mark Atkinson has advised the parties that he
 Vancouver Senate 11/12 -129
Minutes of 18 April 2012
is available for talks in early May. Under the terms of the Labour Relations Code, CUPE
2278 cannot undertake any strike activity while mediation is pending. More information
has been circulated by Vice-Provost Anna Kindler and can be found on the UBC
homepage.
In relation to the Federal budget, the President suggested that given budget cuts made to
departments, support for post-secondary education remains strong. There are substantial
new investments, including a $500 million commitment to the Canadian Foundation for
Innovation (CFI). UBC has benefitted tremendously from CFI funding in the past and
predictable funding is appreciated. There are further investments in Genome Canada for
applied research in human health and to sustain the science and technology centres that
Genome Canada funds, and specific funding to support the expanded production of
isotopes that will be important for the Tri-University Meson Facility (TRIUMF). Professor
Toope informed Senate that he had been assured that the 1.3% cuts to the granting
councils are not expected to affect core granting functions such as NSERC discovery
grants, but this will be monitored. There was a further reinvestment of the cut to funds
supporting industry-academic research partnerships. Our core advocacy issue was to
prevent cuts to core grants and this seems to have been respected, but we will still have to
make the case for the fundamental importance of basic research funding.
UBC has ended the fiscal year on 31 March having beaten our fundraising and alumni
engagement targets for Start an Evolution. We raised $194.1 million this year and had 35
000 actively engaged alumni; this represents a 14% increase in alumni engagement
towards our goal of 50 000. We have now raised over $900 million towards our $1.5
billion goal.
The Board has approved Dr Pascal Spothelfer's appointment to the role of Vice President,
Communications and Community Partnership effective 28 May 2012.
Further, approval has been granted by the Board to zone Gage South as academic lands;
therefore any housing there will be student housing.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-130
Minutes of 18 April 2012
The President thanked Senators and others who submitted suggestions for updates to
Place and Promise, and confirmed that he would bring the revisions to the plan forward
to Senate for consideration in the future.
Finally, Professor Toope asked Senators to review revisions Policy 88 Patents and
Intellectual Property and submit feedback to the University Counsel, noting the policy's
significance to faculty members and students.

Academic Policy Committee
The Committee Chair, Dr Paul Harrison, presented the reports on behalf of the Academic
Policy Committee.
PROPOSAL FOR OBSERVANCE OF NATIONAL WEST COAST CLOSING EVENT OF THE
TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION
Paul Harrison }        That UBC classes be suspended for one day
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-131
Minutes of 18 April 2012
Rhodri Windsor- during the Truth and Reconciliation
Liscombe Commission of Canada's final national event
on the west-coast in Vancouver in September
2013 to allow students and faculty to
participate in this event; and
That UBC faculty, staff, and students be
encouraged to take the time to direct attention
to this event and its significance and to
consider how a greater awareness of the
attendant issues might be integrated into their
curricula and co-curricular programming.
Dr Harrison stated that this represented an unusual opportunity for UBC to have the
community take part in the planned event. He apologized for the vague information bein^
available as to which date the event would be held. He assured Senators that further
details would follow to Senate in due course.
Approved.
POLICY J-101 STUDENT CONDUCT DURING EXAMINATIONS AND POLICY J-102
EXAMINATION HARDSHIPS & CLASHES
Paul Harrison }        That the proposed policy J-101 Student
Lance Rucker Conduct during Examinations be approved;
and
That the proposed policy J-102 Examination
Hardships and Clashes be approved.
Dr Harrison stated that as indicated in the preamble, these policies have been reviewed
recently in light of suggested updates from the faculties. The policies are intended to
provide clarity for our regulations and pull information together in one place.
Dr Bainbridge asked about students leaving exams in the last 30 minutes.
Dr Harrison replied that faculties could make addition rules including this one.
Senator Anstee asked about the printed booklets featuring the "old" examination rules.
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-132
Minutes of 18 April 2012
With permission of Senate, Ms Oldford replied that arrangements had been made
to have new booklets printed in time for the December examinations; should any
of the old booklets still be available, stickers will be made to amend the regulations
thereon.
Senator Edgecombe asked about the 24 hour definition used for examination hardships;
was this reviewed and reconsidered as part of the Committee's work?
Senator Harrison stated that this issue did come forward and the Committee
decided not to propose a change at this time. Interest was expressed in expanding
this definition and this is a frequent matter of consideration. The last time this was
reviewed in detail the Committee discovered that to extend the definition would
cause a huge increase in the number of hardships and there is not a simple solution
to the problem that would cause. The Committee would be open to considering
new information in this regard.
Approved.
Agenda Committee
On behalf of Mary Anne Bobinski, Agenda Committee Chair, Senator Harrison
presented.
AD HOC STRIKE PREPAREDNESS COMMITTEE
Senator Harrison informed Senate that in accordance with the Senate's Strike Policy, the
Ad Hoc Strike Preparedness Committee had been called together by Vice-Provost Kindler
on behalf of Dr Farrar.
Paul Harrison }        That Rule 9 of the Rules & Procedures of
Robert Sparks Senate be suspended to allow for the
appointment of voting delegates to the Ad Hoc
Strike Preparedness Committee.
Senator Harrison explained that Rule 9 prevented proxies. When Senate set the policy in
question, the Strike Preparedness Committee was given a set membership but given the
 Vancouver Senate 11/12-133
Minutes of 18 April 2012
hurry in which the Committee needs to be formed the Committee could not function as
set.
Senator Anstee felt that there were several ways that this problem could be dealt with. He
suggested that the motion seemed unduly broad and he was concerned by the lack of an
expiry date. He recommended that the full voting membership could act via email.
Senator Harrison replied that this was not the sort of the Committee that took
many formal votes; it was a group that developed and debated policies and
guidelines. The issue was not one of quorum but rather having the right persons
present to inform discussions. The Committee needed to be drawn together under
adverse conditions quickly.
The President suggested that because the Committee needed to be drawn together
quickly, key members might not be in the city when the Committee needs to meet.
He opined that the issue was not one of voting but of representation.
A senator stated that the Committee was so inflexibly designed that it could not
act when needed without this authorization.
Approved.
Curriculum Committee
See Appendix A: Curriculum Summary
The Committee Chair, Dr Peter Marshall, presented the report on behalf of the
Curriculum Committee.
Peter Marshall } That the new courses, changed courses, and
William McKee program changes brought forward by the

 Vancouver Senate 11/12-135
Minutes of 18 April 2012

the November 2011 meeting. We inadvertently requested that the name change take
effect as of the 2012 Winter Session, but had meant for the name change to take effect
asof2011W.
#7976 UNIVERSITY Publishers Marketplace Scholarship in Engineering - A $1,000
scholarship is offered by University Publishers to assist an Engineering student in the
first to third year of studies at The University of British Columbia. Candidates must
have high academic standing to be considered eligible for this award.
Recommendation is made by the Faculty of Applied Science.
How Amended: Award has been changed to recognize academic merit (scholarship)
and not leadership (award). The donor has also specified that the scholarship should
go to students in first through third year and references to leadership and participation
in the Engineering Undergraduate Society have been omitted. The inclusion of the
word 'marketplace' in the title and the removal of financial need criteria are as per the
donor's wish.
