MEMORIAL MINUTE FOR DR PETER A. LUZTIG
Vol. 2013/14 13/14-01-1
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-2
Minutes of 19 February 2014
Peter Lusztig was born in Budapest and came to Canada in 1948 after spending
much of his childhood in China and Hong Kong. In 1954, he graduated with a
Bachelor of Commerce from UBC with a specialization in public administration.
Outside of class, he was an active student as a member of the Thunderbird Swim
Team and a member of the Alma Mater Society. After completing a Master of
Business Administration at Western University in 1955, he began his finance
career at the BC Electric Company (BC Hydro). While at BC Electric, Dr. Lusztig
was recruited to join the Finance Division at UBC's Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration in 1957. After several years of teaching, he joined the
doctoral program in finance at Stanford University, completing his doctoral
studies in 1965. Dr. Lusztig was appointed Chair of the Finance Division in 1968
and was named Dean of the Faculty in 1977, a position he held until returning to
the Finance Division in 1991. He remained a member of the Faculty until his
retirement in 1995.
As Chair of the Finance group and as Dean, Dr. Lusztig led the Faculty to become
one of the top business schools in the country. He established the first Advisory
Council of a business school in Canada, established an internationally recognized
Ph.D. Program, and assisted Shanghai liao Tong University in launching business
courses alongside their engineering courses. Perhaps most importantly, under his
leadership, UBC joined the ranks of the top research business schools in the world
He was a member of the Senate as both a faculty member and as Dean, serving a
total of 21 years as a Senator. Following retirement, Dr. Lusztig's involvement
with the University continued through his continued affiliation with the Faculty
and its Finance Division. In addition to his years of teaching at UBC, Dr. Lusztig
also taught at the University of Washington and the Banff School of Advanced
Management.
Early in his career, he accepted an appointment to the BC Royal Commission on
Automobile Insurance, eventually becoming a founding director of the Insurance
Corporation of British Columbia. Subsequently, he accepted appointments to a
number of boards: CANFOR, ICBC, Royal Sun Alliance, Vancouver General
Hospital and its Foundation, Tree Island Industries, ROINS Financial Holdings,
Healthcare Benefit Trust, Arts Umbrella and the Vancouver Board of Trade. He
served as sole commissioner of the BC Commission of Inquiry into the Tree Fruit
Industry and chaired the Federal/Provincial Asia Pacific Initiative. Shortly before
retiring, the federal government appointed Dr. Lusztig as Federal Commissioner
to the BC Treaty Commission for 4 consecutive 2-year terms.
After 37 years with the University, Dr. Lusztig's retired in 1995 and was named
Dean Emeritus of Commerce and Business Administration. In 2010, the
University established the Peter Lusztig Professorship in Finance in recognition of
his invaluable contribution to the University.
The Senate sends its condolences to Dr. Lusztig's family and friends.

Admissions Committees
Senator Robert Sparks, Chair of the Admissions Committee, presented.
ENROLMENT TARGETS 2014-2015
See Appendix A: Enrolment Targets
Robert Sparks }
Peter Choi
That Senate approve the 2014/2015 enrolment
targets, as per section 27(2)(r) of the University Act.
Dr Sparks explained that we plan many years in advance for enrolment targets through a
consultative process between the deans, Provost and others. A key factor is the Provincial grant
and the funded full-time equivalencies (FTEs), but strategic priorities, capacity, and funding
opportunities are also considered.
The Committee Chair noted that there was a marginal increase in the Provincial grant due to new
health funding, but we were still over-enrolled compared to our funding. He further advised that
this report was the first that reflected the phasing-in of enrolment for Vantage College.
Senator Sterling asked why Forestry was limiting its transfer enrolment except for one program.
Senator Marshall advised that this was just a prediction based on demand and success.
Most of the Faculty of Forestry's transfer students are put into first year as they need to
complete lower-division course requirements and pre-requisites.
Approved.
BACHELOR OF DENTAL SCIENCE, DENTAL HYGIENE - CHANGES IN ADMISSION
REQUIREMENTS
Robert Sparks
Lance Rucker
That Senate approve changes to admission
requirements for applicants to the Bachelor of Dental

Dr Sparks noted that referenced letters were removed as they did not supply useful information
for the admissions process.
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-4
Minutes of 19 February 2014
Approved.
DOCTOR OF MEDICINE - CALENDAR CHANGES ON ADMISSION
Robert Sparks } That Senate approve Calendar changes for the
Darrin Fernandez Doctor of Medicine program, effective for the 2015
Winter Session and thereafter.
Dr Sparks noted that the changes were to reflect changes to the MCAT, reduce the number of
applicants granted interviews, and clarify transfer language.
FACULTY OF GRADUATE AND POSTDOCTORAL STUDIES - TRANSFER CREDIT
FACULTY OF GRADUATE AND POSTDOCTORAL STUDIES - UNDERGRADUATE ELIGIBILITY
FOR GRADUATE COURSES
Robert Sparks } That Senate approve the revised Calendar entry on

and
That Senate approve the proposed Calendar entry on

Admissions & Curriculum Committees
Senator Marshall presented on behalf of the Admission & Curriculum Committees
NEW DEGREE PROGRAM: BACHELOR OF MEDIA STUDIES
See Appendix B: Bachelor of Media Studies
Peter Marshall } That the  new Bachelor  of Media Studies
Rhodri Winsor-Liscombe Program and its associated new courses and
subject code brought forward by the Faculty
of Arts be approved.
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-5
Minutes of 19 February 2014
With leave of Senate, Dr Janet Giltrow, Associate Dean of Arts explained that the Bachelor of
Media Studies (B.M.S.) program was designed to attract the interest of high achieving students.
The BMS takes existing resources and courses that UBC does very well and repackages them
into a new degree program that more resembles a professional degree rather than a traditional
Arts degree. There is a 61-credit core and a cohort model. The strictness of the core curriculum
is compensated in part by moving away from certain basic BA requirements.  She further noted
that there were many media studies programs in the world and thus a lot of competition, but the
Faculty of Arts believed that UBC had an opportunity to offer a good program and distinguish
ourselves in this field.
Senator Ahmed asked if Government approval would be needed.
Senator Marshall replied that yes, as this would be a new degree, consent of the Minister
for Advanced Education would sought as required by the University Act.
Senator Sterling noted that we were projecting a September start. She asked how we intended to
recruit students
Dr Giltrow replied that Arts would have a "soft launch" and reach out to qualified
students.
Approved.
Curriculum Committee
The Chair of the Senate Curriculum Committee, Dr Peter Marshall, presented.
FEBRUARY CURRICULUM PROPOSALS
See Appendix C: Curriculum Report
Peter Marshall } That the new courses, revised course, new minor, and
Ken Baimbridge revised programs brought forward by the faculties of
Applied Science, Arts, Graduate and Postdoctoral
Studies (Arts, Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences),
and law be approved.
Dr Marshall quickly explained the proposals from the faculties. He highlighted that the Faculty
of Arts was proposing a new Minor in Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies.
Senator Vessey questioned the title of RELG 307 (Sex, Lies, and Violence in the
Hebrew Bible) and noted that more and more we seemed to have course titles that could be
described as "pitches".
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-6
Minutes of 19 February 2014
Dr Marshall advised that the Senate Curriculum Committee had had similar questions,
and earlier this academic year had referred this matter back to the Faculty for review; the
Faculty provided a rationale for the title.
Senator Singh advised that similar titles were used now at other recognized universities,
but that the Senate Curriculum Committee had approved this title for UBC with some
hesitation.
Approved
MD UNDERGRADUATE RENEWED CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK
Peter Marshall } That Senate approve the MD Undergraduate
Ken Baimbridge Renewed Curriculum Framework Proposal in
principle, with the proviso that all new and changed
courses specified and any needed program changes
be forthcoming to Senate for approval prior to
implementation."
With leave of Senate, Dr David Snadden, Executive Associate Dean for Education, Faculty of
Medicine, spoke to the proposal.
Senator Chan spoke in favour of the proposal on behalf of MD students. He noted that students
in the program were still inquisitive about how the proposal will be implemented but viewed the
framework positively.
In response to a question from Dean Peacock, Dean Shuler noted that Dentistry supported the
framework proposal from Medicine.
Approved
Academic Policy Committee
The Chair of the Senate Academic Policy Committee, Dr Paul Harrison, presented.
ROLLING GRADUATION FOR DOCTOR OF MEDICINE (MD) GRADUANDS
Paul Harrison } That Senate approve the rolling graduation proposal
Philip Loewen put forward by the Faculty of Medicine as set out in
the attached document.
Senator Harrison explained that this proposal would allow undergraduate MD degrees to be
granted outside of the usual November and May meetings, as was already the policy for graduate
degrees generally.
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-7
Minutes of 19 February 2014
Approved
Student Awards Committee
The Chair of the Senate Awards Committee, Dr Sue Grayston, presented.
See Appendix E: Awards Report
Sue Grayston } That Senate approve the new awards and changes to
Lawrence Burr existing awards as listed below and forward these to
the Board of Governors for approval; and that letters
of thanks be sent to the donors of new awards.
Senator Grayston noted that in addition to the roughly $60 000 in new donor-funded awards, new
University-funded awards were presented to enhance the diversity goals of UBC Vantage
College. The College aimed to represent students from a diverse background and these awards
would help them achieve a more diverse student body. The structure of the vantage awards
would be in line with other international awards for UBC.
Senator Anstee noted the scale of the first award, as it was a large commitment on behalf of the
University.
By general consent, the motion was divided to consider the Vantage College
Excellence Award separately
VANTAGE COLLEGE EXCELLENCE AWARD
AMENDMENT
Richard Anstee } That the Vantage College Excellence Awards terms
Graham Beales be amended to strike "$45,000 " and replace it with
"the cost of tuition and living expenses ".
AMENDMENT TO THE AMENDMENT IN THE FORM OF A SUBSTITUTION
Paul Harrison } That the Vantage College Excellence Awards terms
Shannon Sterling be amended to strike "$45,000 " and replace it with
"$45,000 to cover the cost of tuition and living
expenses ".
Senator Marshall asked if it was prudent to approve the award if we were unsure of the wording.
Senator Fernandez asked what support would be available to students who had financial need.
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-8
Minutes of 19 February 2014
Senator Grayston replied that from years 2-4 Vantage students would be treated the same
as other international in matters relating to awards and financial aid.
Senator Harrison noted that the original award will be funded by Vantage, but noted that the
years 2-4 awards were paid for out of the usual international student fund mandated by Board
policy.
Senator N Marshall asked if we should include the renewal conditions in the award terms.
Senator Grayston replied that rules around renewal conditions were in the general
University awards regulations.
Amendment in
the Form of a
Substitution
Approved
Senator Karimi asked why the $40 000 maximum for the renewal amount was set when this was
above the normal awards term.
AMENDMENT
Nina Karimi } That the Vantage College Excellence Awards terms
Natalie Marshall be amended to strike "$40,000 " and replace it with
"$34,000".
With leave of Senate, Principal James Ridge advised that the $34,000 amount for other awards
was an out-dated number that had not been adjusted for inflation. He informed Senate that
$40,000 was the appropriate amount for his program.
The Registrar concurred.
Senator Dunford asked why Vantage was not paying for years 2-4 of the award, noting that the
expense would have to be covered by the faculties.
Principal Ridge replied that this would be in line with International Student Initiative
awards, and that the faculties would see a benefit from international student tuition.
Amendment
Failed
 Vancouver Senate 13/14-9
Minutes of 19 February 2014
By general consent, the renewable aspects of the Vantage College Excellence Award were
referred to the Senate Student Awards Committee for review.

Report from the Provost
BUDGET UPDATE
The Provost, Dr Farrar, presented.
Dr Farrar set out the strategic context for the UBC budget. Provincial cuts and policies, sector
transformations, and University ambitions are all leading to a need for cost cutting, revenue
diversification and strategic investments.
Dr Farrar explained the basis of the University's budget. He noted that our only increasing
sources of revenue are inflation-adjustments to tuition. Our expenses are largely growing due to
increases in salaries. Our revenues are expected to be up by $21M next year and almost all of
this would go towards faculty and staff compensation for faculties. For our faculty budgets,
deficits totalled $27M this year and faculty reserves are now down from $172M to $145M versus
last year.
The Provost noted that there are three types of faculty budget evolutions: international growth
and undergraduate transformations. Professional program growth, and challenging funding
models. Our larges two worries are Law and Medicine, as neither can grow professional
 Vancouver Senate 13/14 -10
Minutes of 19 February 2014
programs or international numbers. Law's budget is only $11M but it has a $1M deficit.
Medicine is very large but has a very complex budget.
For the entire University, the Provost opined that our key funding gaps were for infrastructure
and student services.
Senator Vessey noted that the Community Engagement aspects of Place and Promise were not
recognized in our budget.
The Provost agreed that it was time for a refresh and with a new president we would have
that opportunity. We have struggled most with Community Engagement. We are still
working on a strategy. We believe we need to give back to our community by creating a
knowledge-based economy.
