Theology to replace the Rev. Dr Stephen Farris
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
Lance Rucker }        That the Minutes of the Meeting of 15 May 2013
William McNulty be adopted as presented.
Approved.
Remarks from the Chair
The president apologised for the length of his remarks given the start of the year. He first
commented on the Commerce Undergraduate Society (CUS) Frosh Week situation, noting that
this was a sad set of events that the University will address with the utmost seriousness.
Professor Toope advised that the CUS has accepted responsibility as have involved individuals.
The president further noted that he did not just consider this to be an issue at Commerce and the
response would be University-wide.
Professor Toope informed Senate that he had just returned from the Truth and Reconciliation
Commission's West Coast Final National Event. The President expressed his thanks to Senate
for suspended classes to allow for robust faculty and student participation.
Professor Toppe noted that 7 824 new undergraduate students arrived at UBC Vancouver this
year, this represented a small decrease from last year of about 3%. There are now 31 589
undergraduate students on the campus.
Dr Kathleen (Kate) Ross has been appointed Registrar; she is presently the Registrar at Simon
Fraser University. The President commented that there is a strong focus in Dr Ross' career on
student services and strategic enrolment management and that she has been a national champion
on student aid issues.
The President noted that nominations for honorary degrees would close on 30 September and he
urged Senators to nominate qualified persons. He suggested that UBC could do better in
recognizing leading academics.
In terms of government relations, the President advised that he had met with our new Minister of
Advanced Education three times and that Minister Virk has now visited both of our campuses.
Professor Toope suggested that the minister seems engaging and open to discussing ideas, as
does his new deputy minister. It was noted that both of these officials are new to these levels of
office.
Professor Toope advised that the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC)
has submitted its recommendations to the House of Commons budget committee. The AUCC has
made recommendations in three key areas: increased funding for granting councils - with strong
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-3
Minutes of 18 September 2013
emphasis on their core granting budgets, support for the indirect costs of research, and increased
and continued support for infrastructure for the CFI for future budgets.
It was noted by the President that the arbitrator appointed has issued an award between UBC and
the Faculty Association allowing for a 2.5% increase for faculty members. This is above the
provincially mandated limited of 2%. The arbitrator's rationale for this was the importance of
UBC maintaining its ratio with comparator institutions. The president did note that this award
would mean increased pressures upon faculty operating budgets.
Professor Toope advised that he had recently visited China with the Vice-President Research &
International and several deans, where he was able to meet with the Vice-Minister of Education
who agreed to extend support for the China Scholarship Council students, to try to increase the
number of PhD and to extend to masters and possibly undergraduate students. Professor Toope
also signed an agreement with the City of Chongqing that designated as the principle academic
partner for one of the largest cities in the world. It was noted that UBC is just one of many
players in Beijing or Shanghai, but that Chongqing has been more selective in its choice of
partners. The President went on to say that he concluded his visit by attending events in
Shanghai and Hong Kong, with the latter having a strong alumni and development focus: a
number of major gifts were made for the alumni centre and this has allowed us to go ahead with
that project.
Finally, the President reminded Senate of his exchange of correspondence with the Writers'
Union of Canada and UBC due to our approach on fair dealing and copyright. We have issued a
letter that outlines our position and notes that we pay upwards of $25M to authors and
publishers, and only $1M of this is course packs. He advised that UBC undertook a rigorous
clearance system for course pack materials, and some of that is transactional or used under fair
dealings. At UBC, the evaluation for fair dealings is undertaken by trained staff. There are a
small number of publishers that refuse to provide transactional clearances for materials and this
means that there are some materials that cannot be included in course packs. In conclusion he
happily noted that UBC has managed to reduce the cost of course packs to students by 33%.
Dean Averill complimented the President for the clarity of his letter around the Writers'
Union situation.
From the Board of Governors
The President confirmed that the following recommendations of Senate were approved by the
Board of Governors:

Paul Harrison } That the Senate approve the attached Code of
Philip Loewen Conduct for the Faculty of Pharmaceutical
Sciences.
Dr Harrison noted that the faculty wanted to make clear to all members of its learning
community the expectation and terms for conduct.
Senator Belanger commended the faculty for the code, in terms of both the process and product.
He asked how it would be incorporated into the curriculum.
Dr Harrison replied that this document would be reflected in the curriculum.
With permission of Senate, Dr Patricia Gerber advised that this would be included. This
document was to frame professionalism in the faculty and there were many activities
planned to ensure that this was a living integrated document.
Senator Edgcumbe asked if there would be consequences for violating the policy.
Dr Gerber advised that the document was intended to establish expectations and work
with existing policies that apply to students in classrooms and labs.
Senator Edgcumbe asked if a student could be penalised for not following the policy.
Dr Gerber advised that the intent was not to penalise but to establish expectations.
Dr Harrison added that the policy applied to everyone, not just students.
Senator Witt asked what happens for those who violate it.
Dr Harrison advised that other policies would come into action.
Dean Coughtrie stated that this was a statement of expectations, not a document to
supplant the existing policies around discipline.

Report from the President
ANNUAL REPORT OF THE OMBUDSPERSON 2012
The President introduced Ms Shirley Nakata, Ombudsperson for Students.
Ms Nakata presented some basic statistics to give the Senate an idea of the work her office had
this year. She noted that in terms of caseload her office has had a constant increase each year but
was expected to settle next year or the year after with 400 cases per year.
Last year, 40% of cases were graduate students and this year it is 36%. With the undergraduate
students it is mostly the upper division. The time required is around the same for graduate and
undergraduates. Undergraduate students mostly have process questions; with graduate students it
is mostly navigating relationships.
Around 1/3   of students seen by the Office have some out-of-Canada living experience; for
Graduate students this is closer to 50%.
Ms Nakata noted that the bulk of Ombuds office work is giving students advice and information.
Our goal is to build their capacity and confidence. We want them to build a skill set to move
through conflict productively. The main business of the office is promoting fairness;
at the nucleus of every conflict is a sense of fairness or unfairness. She went on to suggest that
perceptions of fairness are cultural, asking how do we communicate? How do we view
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-9
Minutes of 18 September 2013
authority? What is academic achievement? She further discussed the idea of a cultural baseline
that was important when it came to tribunals assessing people giving evidence. As adjudicators
why apply our own social norms to non-verbal expressions. It is not enough to just let people
know that such issues exist; you have to tell them expressly what these things are.
The Ombudsperson noted that culture impacts on our roles and responsibilities and what
expectations we have. She suggested that we needed to start at a place where we assume that
differences to exist.
The Ombudsperson then went on outline some suggestions her office has recently made,
suggesting that we need consistent practices around communicating important rules and
practices:
• With our rules we should use a purposive approach. Sameness does not equal fairness.
• Have information accessible and easy to find
• Be Repetitive - if it's important
• Be explicit
• Talk about rules early.
Ms Nakata suggested that we have all had experiences with unreasonable complainant, be that a
student or a faculty member. We can learn from these experiences. It could be that a complaint is
trivial, but beyond the annoyance factor, there may be an opportunity there to improve what we
do to change the circumstances for the next complainant.
The ombudsperson thanked those present for working with her office.
Senator Edgcumbe asked at what point did graduate students visit.
Ms Nakata replied that it was more towards the end of their programs or after watershed
moments. Graduate students did not generally come early enough, tending to put up with
a lot of adversary before taking action.
The President expressed his support and thanks for Ms Nakata's work. He reminded Senators
that the Supreme Court of Canada has taken a purposive approach to its decisions as well.
Report from the Faculty of Forestry
David Farrar } That Senate approve the amendments to the
Lance Rucker Membership of the Faculty of Forestry as
amended:
 Vancouver Senate 12/13 -10
Minutes of 18 September 2013
By general consent the motion was amended to correct the name of Faculty of Graduate and
Postdoctoral Studies.
Approved.
Report from the Provost
DR PATRICIA CLUGSTON VGH & UBC HOSPITAL FOUNDATION CHAIR IN BREAST
RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY
David Farrar } That Senate approve the establishment of the
Peter Choi Dr Patricia Clugston VGH & UBC Hospital
Foundation Chair in Breast Reconstruction
Surgery.
Approved.
INTEGRATION OF HEALTH DISCIPLINES
The Provost noted that this would be a short update on a long and complex issue. Conversations
have been ongoing for the past year on this topic. The Provost stated that he chairs a group of
health academic administrators and we have asked how we can approach health in a more
integrated manner as we move towards a more integrated healthcare system.
The health imperative comes from our belief that the current healthcare system does not
optimally address the needs of patients or funders. UBC could play an important role in moving
changes in that system. Conversations are around a number of collaborative areas. On the
research and educational sides we have groups looking at using technology.
Dr Farrar advised that we have another group led by the dean of medicine looking to form an
academic health sciences centre to link us with the health authorities. This unit would stimulate
research activities and provide for more seamless interaction between health researchers and
providers. Another group is looking at integrating the financial support for health units and
preliminary discussions around IT integration. This is driven by a desire to provide better support
but also because the Board is asking for reduced risk exposure in these areas.
The Provost noted that invariably people wonder about structure, and this is the conversation -
structure - we are about to start with the faculties; one idea to date would be to create new
faculty: a faculty of health. This option would be a unified faculty that would have schools
within it for disciplines. The Provost noted that this would be a very complex organization.
Senator Hall asked how a faculty of health would function with one school the size of SFU and
many small ones could provide leadership around health.
 Vancouver Senate 12/13-11
Minutes of 18 September 2013
Dave advised that in addition to the size of Medicine, there are large ranges of concerns
around power dynamics. We started conversations around leaving Medicine as is and
creating another faculty next to it. Perhaps we could move things out of medicine such as
its constituent schools. This seemed acceptable to the schools. The size and power
imbalance is a complex issue.
In our opinion the status quo is not acceptable. The current structure does not easily deal
with issues such as curriculum development.
Senator Baimbridge asked what consultation would be with the faculty. This conversation has
been at a high level; at what point would we actually engage faculty members and not just senior
administrators.
Dr Farrar replied that we are just starting this process. We will be meeting with associate
deans and unit heads next, and in a month or so start to meet with faculty members at
large.
Senator Chapman asked what units would be involved.
The Provost stated that Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Kinesiology, Nursing were
primary considerations. Health is a spectrum. Kinesiology was across a line in that it does
not have a professional college, but Social Work and Food Nutrition and Health could be
options. Dr Farrar suggested that UBC would not want a new unit that was almost all of
the University however.
Senator Averill asked if we could provide leadership to the province with seven units, suggesting
that the province has a singular notion around health at present.
The Dean of Applied Science expressed his pleasure from recent comments from Nursing
suggesting their current happiness within the Faculty of Applied Science.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:30 pm.
