Senate Membership
The Acting Secretary announced that Mssrs Barak Caracheo and Philip Edgcumbe were
acclaimed as elected to the Senate Nominating Committee until 31 March 2014 and thereafter
until replaced.
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
William McNulty }        That the Minutes of the Meeting of 17 April 2013
Kenneth Baimbridge be adopted as presented.
Approved.
Business Arising from the Minutes
Senator Knight asked if any further information was presented to the Board of Governors on
Vantage College following Senate's approval in March.
The President advised that the concept presented to the Board was the same as presented
to the Senate.
Dr Farrar added that further financial information was to be presented to the Board at its
June meeting. More information would be available in September.
Vol. 2012/13 12/13 -1
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-2
Minutes of 15 May 2013
In response to a question posed at the previous meeting, the Acting Secretary advised that 183
Major Entrance Scholarships were awarded in the previous year. Of these, 95 are renewable, 74
one time, and 14 are specifically targeted to aboriginal students (half of which are renewable).
The program budget is $948 825.
Remarks from the Chair
The President noted that the recent provincial government election raises four items of focus:
• The Research Universities' Council put together an Opportunity Agenda and we
will continue to move this agenda forward with Government, which a specific
focus on graduate student spaces, student financial assistance, and a stable
research funding model on the provincial level;
• Discussion on the position of universities within the government reporting entity
- universities being removed would give us more flexibility for capital projects;
• An emphasis beyond the Opportunity Agenda for graduate student support; and
• The current Provincial budget plan, which would have the university sector
absorbing a $20 million cut next year and a $50 million the year after.
With relation to copyright, Professor Toope advised Senate that the Access Copyright
consortium has launched a suit against York University; this action underscores the importance
of UBC's adherence and compliance with copyright rules. The President drew senators' attention
to the updated UBC copyright website - including copyright guidance, fair dealing guidance, and
frequently asked questions - at copryright.ubc.ca and reminded them that CWL account holders
are being asked to review and acknowledge this information whenever material is updated (and
at least annually). Professor Toope further noted that the Association of Universities and
Colleges of Canada (AUCC) has elected to assist York in its defence despite AUCC's agreement
with Access Copyright. The President expressed his thanks to the Library, legal counsel's office,
and faculties for their work in this area.
The President drew senators' attention to the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario
(HEQCO) survey on doctoral enrolment at Ontario universities; HEQCO has noted that over the
past 10 years, doctoral enrolments have doubled at Ontario universities, 2/3rds of those students
aspire to professorial roles and that fewer than 25% will be able to do so. Professor Toope noted
that it was important for all universities to be aware of these statistics and how they are shared
with applicants to doctoral programs.
Senator Baimbridge asked if a part of these HEQCO results were caused by longer-duration PhD
programs.
The President replied that he did not think this to be the case, but he shared the concern
with regards to time to completion for PhD degrees.
Senator Loewen noted that the Faculty of Graduate [and Postdoctoral] Studies considered
this at a recent meeting; he suggested that there was some concern amongst doctoral
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-3
Minutes of 15 May 2013
students that they would be stigmatized if they did not go into academic careers upon
graduation.
Council of Senates Budget Committee Vancouver Sub-Committee
The Sub-Committee Chair, Dr William Dunford, presented an annual report on the Sub-
Committee's activities. He noted that the Sub-Committee was considering changing the way it
operates and recently has had a number of joint meetings with the Academic Building Needs and
the Library Committees. Senator Dunford suggested that the committee was interested in having
a more public profile and has set up a mechanism for faculty, students, and others to email their
comments; a small number have done so to date.
The Sub-Committee Chair noted that the Sub-Committee had recently discussed the maintenance
of UBC classrooms in light of decreases in funding from the Province, the issue of a new Faculty
Lounge in the University Centre similar to the former Faculty Club (now Sage Bistro), and the
rigidity of our overall budget against our relative good standing compared to many other
universities. He noted that the two largest areas for potential revenue were summer use of
campus and an increase in international students, both of which are being pursued.
In response to a question from Senator Belanger, Senator Dunford reminded senators that
the budgets of the two campuses were kept separately.
Candidates for Degrees and Diplomas
Lance Rucker } That the candidates for degrees and diplomas,
Rhodri Windsor Liscombe as recommended by the Faculties, be granted
the degree or diploma for which they were
recommended, effective May 2013, and that a
committee comprised of the Registrar, the
appropriate dean, and the Chair of the
Vancouver Senate be empowered to make any
necessary adjustments.
NB: (2/3 majority required)
Senator Baimbridge asked if students were allowed to vote on this motion.
The Chair advised that they were full members of Senate and could vote.
Approved.
Senate Academic Building Needs Committee
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-4
Minutes of 15 May 2013
The Chair of the Committee, Dr Robert Sparks, presented its annual report. He expressed his
thanks to Stephanie Oldford of the Senate office for her work over the past year. He noted that
the joint meetings held between committees were very useful to avoid the silo and segmentation
of information and decisions around UBC. Dr Sparks noted that each year the Committee's
members also participated on the Property and Planning Advisory Committee. The Committee
focused on learning spaces this year as it did last; this was partially due to the changes in the
organization of the former Classroom Services. The Committee has been assured that the new
organization of our classroom management and scheduling functions is operating acceptably. For
the next year, Dr Sparks advised that his Committee has decided to focus on heritage policy in
light of campus development, ongoing discussions on accessibility, and green space.
Senator Mahal asked if an assessment had been done for new infrastructure required by increases
in international enrolment.
Senator Sparks replied that UBC was considering these issues; notably there was a
utilization audit done last year of our 750 classrooms. He suggested looking at how we
can mobilize those rooms currently "reserved" by faculties for specific or limited usage;
and a second audit is being planned for classroom quality.
Academic Policy Committee
Dr Philip Loewen presented on behalf of Dr Paul Harrison, explaining the history of and
motivation for the proposal.
CHULALONGKORN UNIVERSITY LLM (BUSINESS LAW) MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING
Philip Loewen }        That Senate approve the law Faculty to re-join
Mary Anne Bobinski the partnership between the law Faculties of
Chulalongkorn University in Thailand, Kyushu
University in Japan, the University of Victoria in
British Columbia, and the University of
Washington in Washington State, to assist in the
delivery of the IIM (Business law) at
Chulalongkorn University under the terms as set
out in the attached 2013 Memorandum of
Understanding.
Senator Loewen presented, explaining the history of and motivation for the proposal.
Approved.
POLICY V-302.1 - GRADUATE STUDENT LEAVES OF ABSENCE
Philip Loewen }        That Senate approve the attached policy V-302.1:
Joe Belanger Graduate Student leaves of Absence as proposed.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-5
Minutes of 15 May 2013
Senator Vessey asked if we expected students to not think about their graduate programs while
on leave.
Senator Loewen replied that we would have to be reasonable in applying this rule, but
clearly we could not enforce a rule requiring students not to think about their research
areas while on leave.
Approved.
Admissions Committee
The Committee Chair, Dr Robert Sparks, presented.
MASTER OF ADVANCED STUDIES IN ARCHITECTURE - CHANGE IN APPLICATION DEADLINE
Robert Sparks } That Senate approve the revised application
Lance Rucker deadline for applicants to the Master of
Advanced Studies in Architecture, for entry to
the 2014 Winter Session and thereafter.
Dr Sparks noted that this was a nominal change to be more in line with the deadlines at other
institutions.
Approved.
COMMITTEE APPROVAL PROCESSES - REQUEST FOR DELEGATED AUTHORITY
Robert Sparks } That Senate delegate to the Admissions
Lance Rucker Committee the authority to grant final approval
of nominal changes to admission requirements
and editorial changes to Calendar language
related to admission, as defined in the attached
proposal.
NB: (2/3 majority required)
Senator Sparks noted that the Senate Admissions Committee looked at 28 proposals last year, 13
of which were editorial or minor in nature. He suggested that this unreasonably took up Senate's
time. Dr Sparks went on to explain the proposed approval system for editorial changes.
Richard Anstee spoke in favour of the proposal.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-6
Minutes of 15 May 2013
Approved.
ANNUAL REPORT ON APPEALS AND OTHER MATTERS OF DELEGATED AUTHORITY
Senator Sparks reported on three items on which the Committee had been given delegated
responsibility by Senate: Grade adjustments under Policy J-50, student mobility agreements
under Policy C-2, and student appeals.
Senator Haffey asked if the 4 percent increase was a change from previous years.
Richard Anstee advised that in previous years it was 2 percent and the change was based
on statistical evidence.
In response to a question from a student senator, Senator Sparks advised that we did not make
changes such as this for BC applicants, although we did track schools relative to each other.
Senator Singh asked if Alberta lowered grades from other jurisdictions.
A student senator asked if we lowered averages for students from jurisdictions where they did
not perform well.
Senator Sparks confirmed that we did not do so.
Agenda Committee
The Chair of the Senate Agenda Committee, Dean Mary Anne Bobinski, presented.
ADJUSTMENT TO NOMINATING COMMITTEE PROCEDURES
Mary Anne Bobinski } That section 25(g) of the Rules and Procedures
Rhodri Windsor-Liscombe of the Vancouver Senate be amended to read
"The Nominating Committee shall review the
terms of reference of Senate committees in the
third year of each Senate.
NB: (2/3 majority required)
Senator Bobinski advised that this change was to give effect to a Senate decision from several
years ago to move away from a short annual review in favour of a more in-depth three-year
review that was not properly reflected in the Rules and Procedures of Senate.
Approved.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-7
Minutes of 15 May 2013
ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE DELEGATED AUTHORITIES
Mary Anne Bobinski } That section 28(a) of the Rules and Procedures
Judith Plessis of the Vancouver Senate be amended to read
"Admissions Committee (to approve admissions
matters in the summer months on the
recommendation of the faculties and schools for
implementation the following September, with
the proviso that the matter must be ratified by
Senate that September; to approve student
mobility agreements on behalf of the Vancouver
campus; to approve courses used the
calculation of an admission average; to
approve grade adjustments; to approve changes
to existing admission requirements, that, in the
view of the Committee are minor or editorial in
nature; and to hear final appeals on
applications for admission and re- admission to
programs).
NB: (2/3 majority required)
Senator Bobinski advised that this change was to give effect to the previous resolution approved
at the same meeting delegating editorial powers to the Senate Admissions Committee.
Approved.
Committee on Appeals of Academic Standing
The Chair of the Committee, Dr Lance Rucker, presented the Committee's annual report and
drew Senate's attention to the Committee's general observations:
•    The Committee continues to draw to the attention of faculties and departments the
importance of following due process in all matters relating to student assessment,
promotion and appeals. In particular, the Committee notes the importance of Faculties
and Departments responding to requests for information within the required timeframes,
in order to ensure that appeals proceed in a timely and efficient manner.
In order to address this issue, the Committee is in the process of considering specific
concerns relating to the current Review of Assigned Standing policy, and may refer the
matter to Senate with a recommendation for further action to the Academic Policy
Committee, as appropriate.
•
Another issue of concern was brought to the attention of the Committee in the past
months during deliberations regarding appeals, relating to the University requirement for
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-8
Minutes of 15 May 2013
preservation of final examinations. A final examination becomes the property of the
University and must remain in the possession of the University for one year from the date
of the examination, after which it should be destroyed or otherwise disposed of in
accordance with UBC Policy 117. Members of the Committee have discovered that
archived examinations for certain courses have been destroyed prior to the one year
prescribed term.
Senator Rucker informed Senate that since last reporting to Senate in May 2012, nine (9) appeals
proceeded to Committee hearings (as compared with 8 in the prior reporting period), of which
three (3) were allowed and six (6) were dismissed. Details of each case were summarized in the
presented report.
Dr Rucker further noted that the Committee is in the process of amending its procedures to be
followed prior to the hearing, and at the hearing. For procedures prior to the hearing, the
Committee is considering shortening the time for an appellant to submit the initial statement of
appeal by five days (from 15 days to 10 days) and allowing the appellant five days after the
Faculty response has been filed and forwarded to them to file a rebuttal. There is currently no
provision for a written rebuttal and the Committee is of the opinion that the opportunity for the
appellant to file a rebuttal will minimize the Chair and Committee having to consider additional
new material on the day of the hearing.
Amendments to procedures at the hearing which are being considered by the Committee relate to
attendance at the hearing. Over the past year, the Committee has dealt with several instances of a
party (normally the appellant) either arriving late or failing to show up at the hearing without
providing prior notice. The revisions under consideration will maximize fairness to the parties
and ensure the efficient work of the Committee while preventing undue delay in the appeal
process.
Also, the Committee's procedures at the hearing currently do not specify that it has the
opportunity to question parties and witnesses during the hearing, despite the Committee's
standard practice of doing so and its general mandate to seek full information at the hearing as
required. Revised procedures at the hearing will alert parties to the fact that the Committee has
specific opportunity to question them during the hearing and will indicate when the parties may
expect this to happen. Currently, the Chair continues to so advise participants at each hearing as
part of the opening remarks.
The ensure fairness and consistency in the appeal process for all students of the University, the
Okanagan Senate Committee on Appeals of Standing and Discipline is currently considering
similar revisions to its processes. It is expected that the changes will be presented to both Senates
for approval in the fall.
Senator Baimbridge asked for clarification if it was the answers to examinations and not the
unmarked exams that should be kept.
Dr Rucker confirmed that both the student answers and the examination questions put to
them were to be kept.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-9
Minutes of 15 May 2013
Curriculum Committee
The Chair of the Senate Curriculum Committee, Dr Peter Marshall, presented.
MAY CURRICULUM REPORT
See Appendix A: Curriculum Report
Peter Marshall } That the new courses, changed courses, new minor,
Andre Ivanov and program changes brought forward by the
Faculties of Arts, Commerce and Business
Administration, Graduate Studies (Applied Science,
Commerce and Business Administration, Science),
land and Food Systems, and Medicine be approved.
Dr Marshall briefly outlined the nature of each of the curriculum proposals.
A student senator asked if there was a reason why the Faculty of Land & Food Systems co-op
program was a series of 3-credit courses instead of 6 credits.
Senator Chapman replied that she believe this was because similar courses in the Faculty
of Science had a 3-credit value, her faculty would confirm this.
Senator Marshall presented statistics on his committee's work this year. He expressed his thanks
to the staff of the secretary for their work.
Approved.
CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS
Senator Marshall informed Senate that pursuant to the policy on Approval of Certificate
Programs, the following new certificates have been approved by the Senate Curriculum
Committee on behalf of the University:
Certificate in Digital Content and Communications
Certificate in Organizational Coaching
Certificate in Professional Communication
Certificate in Residential Valuation
PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES COURSES CREDIT/D/FAIL (CR/D/F) ELIGIBILITY
The Committee Chair informed Senate that the Senate Curriculum Committee had determined
that proposals to remove Credit/D/Fail eligibility for a significant number of courses within a
program should be brought to Senate for information, to be included in the Senate record.
The rationale for removing the Credit/D/Fail eligibility for the courses below was that students in
the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy program are only eligible to take non-Pharmacy approved
 Vancouver Senate
Minutes of 15 May 2013
12/13-10
electives under the Credit/D/Fail policy. In addition, Pharmaceutical Sciences (PHAR) courses
are not open to students in other programs so non-Pharmacy students are not able to take these
courses as electives under the Credit/D/Fail policy.

Library Committee
The Chair of the Senate Library Committee, Dr Mark Vessey, presented its annual report. He
drew senators' attention to the existence of Library Advisory Committees for each area of
campus. He noted that he and the University Librarian had discussed a system of 12 to 15
Library Advisory Committees to consider particular needs and interests for various parts of the
academic community.
Senator Vessey reminded Senate that the South Campus Library-Archival Facility was planned
to accommodate 1.6 million books. This will be the first module of a possible six phases.
Senator Vessey expressed his thanks to his colleagues on the Committee and to the support staff
of the Senate office, and to the University Librarian.
A student senator asked if those students in School of Library, Archives, and Information
Sciences (SLAIS) programs would be given any opportunities to participate in the growth of the
archive.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-2
Minutes of 15 May 2013
The University Librarian replied that several students were hired each year to work on
projects and she would speak with the director of the school about further opportunities
for involvement.

seek nominees and make recommendations to Senate, but it must be remembered that the final
choice is Senate's to make.

Report from the Provost
INTERCULTURAL UNDERSTANDING
Dr Farrar introduced Mr Alden Habecon, Director, Intercultural Understanding Strategy
Development at the Office of the Vice-President Academic. He noted that prior to coming to
UBC, Mr Habecon worked for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and that he has
spent the past few years working on a variety of projects for UBC including this plan.
Mr Habecon thanked Senate for the opportunity to present what was the the sixth iteration of the
Intercultural Understanding plan. In opening, he suggested that the diversity of our student body
was our greatest asset. 79% are multilingual, and 31% spoke at least one Chinese dialect. To
define what "Intercultural Understanding" meant, the following definition was chosen:
Intercultural understanding refers to the breadth and depth of understanding
across profound cultural difference wherein an individual or a group understands
a variety of significant cultural experiences tied to forms of sociocultural
difference, such as: (1.) ethnicity, race, religion, gender identity and expression,
physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, socio-economic class,
immigration and in many cases academic, employment or professional status; (2.)
the cultural histories, creative practices and faith per spectives of various social
groups within a society; (3.) the interrelations between dominant and non-
dominant cultures; (4.) the dynamics of difference; and (5.) the impact of these
factors on power relations.
He noted that UBC could be a multicultural place without necessarily being an intercultural
place, and explained the four foundational ideas behind Intercultural Understanding:
• Is not an end to itself, but contributing to well-being or social sustainability;
• Is the natural progression of multiculturalism—distinct from and more than
multiculturalism;
• Involves the development of intercultural fluency, the combination of attitudes towards
diversity, knowledge about cultures and difference, and interpersonal skills that
contribute to one's capacity for communication and relationship-building across different
cultures; and
• Requires a cultural shift through sustained learning and appropriate adjustments to the
University's norms and expectations, policies, protocols and processes
Senator Singh asked how the plan would relate with our other strategic plans.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-7
Minutes of 15 May 2013
Mr Habecon replied that we are viewing it as an extension of other plans. For instance,
with the Aboriginal Strategy we are viewing cultural fluency as integral. We are also
framing this as a strategy around social sustainability.
Senator Chapman expressed her support and asked about faculty members being asked to focus
on too many things right now. She questioned how we can align these things so people do not
feel overwhelmed.
Mr Habecon replied that our work with faculty has been focused on resolving their issues
prior to asking them to do more. We need to focus on removing challenges and struggles.
Senator Knight noted that the document was very heavy on process and asked what was the end
goal of the strategy.
Mr Habecon replied that the overall goal was intellectual diversity, and using our assets
and addressing our needs. We need to support our aspirations in student learning,
research excellence, and community engagement. This should not be another goal; this
should be a means to achieve those goals.
Senator Windsor-Liscombe noted that all persons can suffer from atavism and we need training
to deal with the politics around culture, religion, and faith.
Mr Habecon replied that work in this area was underway but not many have done work in
this area in Canada. The University of Toronto has done some work on interfaith issues.
He suggested that this may be reframed as an issue of student wellness. He further noted
that while 40% of UBC students are involved in faith groups on campus, the general
perception amongst students is that only 10% are.
The President suggested that we need to realize that we are not operating from a neutral place.
There are constant issues and problems that need to be managed. This is an intriguing set of
issues for a public, secular university.
The Chancellor expressed her support for the document, especially the framework and the
language used. She stated that a lot of this seemed to be life skills that had direct applicability
outside of the University; Canada is a trading nation and it is essential that we figure this out so
we can share it more broadly with the community.
Senator Hall commended the report and asked about the notion of sensitivity around differences.
In Nursing, they had concerns around "othering" due to language used.
Mr Habecon replied that they were working on a series of guides for how colleagues have
dealt with similar issues but we are avoiding workshops in favour of real examples.
A student senator raised the issue of diversity in ability. She noted that only a small number of
students were registered with Access and Diversity but that many did not due to a stigma.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-8
Minutes of 15 May 2013
Mr Habecon noted that this was covered by our definition of intercultural understanding
but that this wasn't addressed much in his current work.
Senator Thorn asked what a reasonable timeline was for implementation
Mr Habecon replied that 5 to 10 years was a reasonable estimate; any kind of formal
launch is at least a year away.
Senator Knight stated that tolerance and understanding moved us to equity and better citizenship.
