Glasgow School of Art. He entered the teaching profession in 1936 and continued his
study of art in London, Paris and Brussels prior to World War II.
 Vancouver Senate 11886
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Business arising from the Minutes
When the war began in 1939, Sam enlisted in the Royal Scottish Fusiliers and received a
commission in the Officer Corps. He was assigned to the Eastern Command Camouflage
School during the defence of Britain and was at Normandy with the 1st British Corps in
June of 1944. He saw action in France, Belgium and Germany and was decorated with 3
military stars, the Defence Medal, an Oak Leaf and the Belgian Medaille Civile for
bravery. Sam finished his military service as a Major in 1945.
He resumed his educational career and became a Principal Lecturer in Arts at the
Jordanhill Training College in Glasgow. In 1957, he was a visiting Professor at UBC,
teaching Art at a summer school session. He was well received on the Point Grey campus
and his UBC colleagues persuaded him to return in 1958 as a full-time Professor of Fine
Arts and Art Education.
Sam was an excellent teacher at UBC. When Walter Koerner established the Master
Teacher Award in memory of his brother Leon in 1969, Walter Gage was awarded the
first Master Teacher Award. In 1970, Sam Black was the second UBC faculty member
chosen as a Master Teacher. He was also active in the University community and served
as a member-at-large Senator from 1967-1972.
Sam Black received many awards and honours for his artistic works and accomplishments
during his academic career at UBC. One of the most prestigious honours came in 1977
when he was elected to membership in the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Those
elected to membership in the Academy must be men or women who have exhibited
outstanding creative merit and are acknowledged to be Masters in the particular discipline
of visual or environmental arts in Canada. The Master Teacher was also deemed to be a
Master Artist.
He retired to his studio and gallery - the Shieling - on Bo wen Island in 1978. He
continued to be recognized nationally and internationally for his outstanding creativity. In
1990, UBC recognized Sam's unique contributions to the University, the Province,
Canada and the world by conferring upon him a Doctor of Letters, honoris causa.
UBC was fortunate to have had Sam Black as a member of their Academic community.
Over the 41 years that he was associated with UBC, he brought it honour, wisdom,
humour, inspiration and respect as a teacher, an artist, a public speaker, a faculty member
and a committed supporter of the campus community.
Douglas Harold Copp (1915 -1998)
Dr. Harold Copp was a renowned Canadian medical scientist. He came to UBC in 1950
as a Professor and the first Head of the Department of Physiology when the Faculty of
Medicine was founded. He was a strong advocate for medical research and played a
major role in developing the reputation of the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. He served on
the UBC Senate on three different occasions: 1954-57, 1966-69 and 1975-78, and was
Coordinator of Health Sciences before his retirement in 1980.
 Vancouver Senate 11887
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Business arising from the Minutes
Dr. Copp received his MD from the University of Toronto in 1939 and his Ph.D. in
Biochemistry from The University of California at Berkeley in 1943.
He began his academic career in Berkeley during World War II where he worked on the
Manhattan Project and was one of the first scientists to warn of the health hazards of
atomic fission materials. His life long interest in bone metabolism led to his discovery of
the hormone Calcitonin in 1961. Subsequent endocrinological studies of this hormone led
to new knowledge in calcium metabolism and better understanding of osteoporosis and
other bone diseases. These discoveries were the basis for inducting Harold Copp into the
Canadian Medical Hall of Fame as one of the 10 chartered members in 1994.
He also received many other honours for his scientific and academic achievements. He
was a Fellow of both the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Canada, President of the
Academy of Science of the Royal Society of Canada, and an Officer of the Order of
Canada. He received the Gairdner Award, the Flavelle Medal and the Jacob Biely
Research Prize and served as President of both the Canadian Physiological Society and the
National Cancer Institute of Canada. For these achievements, UBC awarded Harold Copp
the degree Doctor of Science, honoris causa in 1980.
He was dedicated to an academic career and to UBC. He made major contributions to
this University as a teacher and an administrator and he brought distinction and
international repute to UBC through his scholarly work. He made a major contribution to
our University and our community, and improved the health of many throughout the
world through his scientific discoveries.
James G. Foulks (1916 - 1998)
James Foulks received his BA from Rice University and his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins
University. He served in World War II and was engaged in experiments involving high
altitude physiological research. This stimulated his interest in Medicine and he completed
his M.D. at Columbia University in the late 1940's and began his research career in renal
and cardiovascular studies.
James Foulks became the founding Head of the Department of Pharmacology at UBC in
1950. He was one of the chartered members of the Faculty of Medicine. Jim chaired the
department for 21 years and retired in 1987. In the 1950's, Jim also was a founding
member of the British Columbia Heart Foundation which was one of the first such
agencies in Canada developed to support medical research.
Jim served on the UBC Senate in 1957-60, 1964-66, and 1972-75. He also was active in
the UBC Faculty Association and served as its President in 1959-60. He had a strong
social conscience. He was active in the Canadian Association of University Teachers and
served as Chairman of its Appeals Committee in 1974, and was President for 2 years from
1981-82.
 Vancouver Senate 11888
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Business arising from the Minutes
James Foulks was a gentleman, a scholar, and a thoughtful colleague. He served UBC
with distinction.
Alice Penny Gouldstone (1919-1997)
Penny Gouldstone was born in Lancashire and educated at Leigh Grammar School and
The University of Manchester. She immigrated to Canada in 1950 and initially taught
high school in Vancouver and Powell River. In 1959, she began a career at UBC in Art
Education and in 1973 she was elected chair of that department. Penny served on the
UBC Senate from 1978-81 as a representative of the Faculty of Education. She retired in
1984 and became active as an Associate of the UBC Botanical Gardens and a member of
the Davidson Club. Her role as Secretary in the Davidson Club was her greatest
contribution to the Botanical Gardens. She recruited supporters, donors and volunteers
for the Friends of the Garden with enthusiasm and devotion.
Her special creative interests in art were in the development of crafts, particularly textiles.
She received national recognition for her creative efforts and had them exhibited in the
National Art Gallery of Canada, the Canadian Pavilion at Expo v67, and numerous
galleries across the country.
She was a member of the Board of Directors of the Community Arts Council of
Vancouver and a Trustee of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Penny was given honorary life
membership in the BC Art Teachers Association and the Canadian Society for Education
through Art. In 1990, she received a 75th Anniversary Medal from UBC and was
recognized as an individual who had "contributed in a unique and extraordinary way
over the past 25 years to make UBC an outstanding public institution." She was a
respected and popular member of the faculty and she will be missed by her colleagues and
her students.
Robert Bews Kerr (1909 - 1998)
Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Dr. Robert Kerr obtained his MD from the
University of Toronto in 1933. His training in Internal Medicine was taken in Toronto

Harold Rocke Robertson (1912 -1998)
Born in Victoria in 1912, he was a graduate of UBC and of McGill University where he
received his MD in 1936. Following an internship, he studied Surgery at the Royal
Infirmary in Edinburgh from 1938-39. He served with the 2nd Canadian Surgical Unit in

MAILING INFORMATION FROM THIRD PARTIES TO MEMBERS OF SENATE
The Registrar presented the following proposal for mailing information from third parties
to members of Senate:
From time to time individuals and organizations ask for assistance in mailing material
to members of Senate. Some members of Senate are reluctant to release their mailing
addresses for this purpose.
To ensure that those who wish to make their views known to members of Senate by
mailing material to them are able to do so, I propose that the Registrar's Office should
mail material from third parties to members of Senate when it meets the following
conditions:
• it is brought to the Registrar's Office in sealed packages, ready for addressing and
mailing;
• correct postage has been applied to each package;
• there is a valid return address on each package.
The return address would provide some assurance that the sender had a legitimate
purpose for sending information to members of Senate and would allow members to
respond to the sender if they wished to do so. Mail would only be returned to this
address if an incorrect mailing address was used for a member of Senate.
The Registrar's Office would address and mail these packages. The addresses of
members of Senate would not be released to the third party. The Registrar's Office
would not open the packages or monitor the contents.
 Vancouver Senate 11891
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Business arising from the Minutes
Dean Isaacson i        That the guidelines for mailing information
Dr. Berger i       from third parties to members of Senate be

PROPOSAL TO ESTABLISH THE CENTRE FOR INTERNATIONAL HEALTH
Vice President McBride presented a proposal to establish the Centre for International
Health. It was explained in the material circulated that the Centre will create a
multidisciplinary community of faculty and students concerned about international health
research, education, and service. Its mission will include supporting linkages between
faculties, departments and other organizations concerned with international issues in the
health sector, stimulating interdisciplinary educational, experiential and research
opportunities for students and faculty, and serving as a focus for scholarly development
within the academic community on the complex and challenging issues associated with
global health strategies. Vice President McBride described the Centre as an exciting
opportunity for collaboration among many different faculties and departments.
Dr. McBride l        That the proposal from the Office of the
Dr. Gilbert J        Coordinator of Health Sciences to establish the
Centre for International Health be approved
by Senate and recommended for approval by
the Board of Governors.

Chair's remarks and related questions
and part three was withdrawn pending clarification as to whether the visiting position
should be designated a Professorship or a Chair. It was subsequently decided that the

Business.
3. Hongkong Bank Visiting Chair in
International Business.
Carried.
Chair's remarks and related questions
The President spoke of her recent visit to Europe, and her participation there in a group
called 'Universitas 21'. This organization comprises the presidents of approximately 20
full service research public universities around the world. The consortium is examining
how its members can collaborate as a group on international, global initiatives. As an
example of these initiatives, the President cited collaboration on an international, multi-
university curriculum designed to give students international credentials in a given field.
The group has met for only the second time, and hopes soon to realize its full power to
collaborate on world funding and research opportunities.
The President was pleased to share a recent announcement by the Government with
regard to the British Columbia Knowledge Development Fund. The Fund entails a $100
 Vancouver Senate 11893
Minutes of May 20,1998	
President's Report on the Visioning Process - Green Paper
million commitment over 6 years to partner the federally operated Canada Foundation
for Innovation. This money will be used for research , infrastructure, research universities
and teaching hospitals. President Piper thanked Vice President Research, Dr. Bernie
Bressler and his staff, for exhibiting leadership in putting a strong case forward for both
UBC and universities across the province. The President expects UBC will be one of the
institutions to gain from the fund. Letters of intent will start going forward in June.
The third item presented by the President was the Canadian Olympic Organization's
recent invitation to UBC to participate as a venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics. The
President warned that the bid process is a very long one, and if anything were to come of
it, UBC would not receive word until 2003. UBC is being asked to house the speed
skating oval, and the athlete's village, which would ultimately give UBC a further 2,500
room spaces, both of which would be built by the Olympic organization. Public forums
will be held between now and July, to examine the first component of an agreement in
principle. For further information, members should contact either Vice President Maria
Klawe, or Dr. Slonecker at the Ceremonies Office.
President's Report on the Visioning Process - Green Paper
The President invited all senators to participate in the upcoming second university-wide
forum for discussion of the Green Paper. This will be the final open discussion on campus
before the process of rewriting the Paper begins. The President's office has already
received between 50 and 75 written submissions, many external responses from alumni,
from international and national partners, and other post-secondary institutions.

enormous amount of work through extensive consultation by a large number of people,
 Vancouver Senate 11901
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Admissions Committee
both in the UBC and Aboriginal communities. Vice President McBride made the following
comments:
The proposed Institute for Aboriginal Health will be a partnership between the First
Nations House of Learning and the Office of the Coordinator of Health Sciences in
response to recommendations made in the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples,
and the Canadian Forum on Health.
The National Forum on Health envisioned an Institute for Aboriginal Health that
would specifically address issues affecting the health of all Aboriginal peoples through
comprehensive university-based education. The Institute would at the same time be an
important mechanism to bring these issues, and education, to the forefront and be an
advocate for change.
It is envisioned that the proposed Institute will be one node in a regional network of
such institutes; it will serve to develop a support network for Aboriginal health
workers in communities; it will perform and advocate an evidence-based approach in
health research to meet the needs of Aboriginal peoples for improved information; and
it will assist in sharing of information within and outside of Aboriginal communities.
The proposed Institute has the interest and support of faculty and students in health
science programs at UBC through the Health Sciences Coordinating Committee, and
strong support from the First Nations community. It will be truly interdisciplinary in
content and approach.
Dr. McBride l        That Senate approve and recommend to the
Dr. Gilbert J        Board of Governors, the establishment of the
Institute for Aboriginal Health.
Carried.

concerned")
"Applicants who because of administrative difficulties in their school or because
they have physical, sensory or specific learning disability cannot present the

Carried.
PROPOSED REVISION OF THE CONCURRENT ENROLMENT POLICY
Proposed Calendar Entry:
(replaces "Students who are enrolled ... for transfer credit" on 1998/99 Calendar, p.
34, column 2 - changes in italics):
Students who are enrolled in a BC secondary school may be admitted to the University
to pursue Concurrent Studies. The following conditions will apply at The University of
British Columbia:
• The applicant must have a superior academic record.
• The applicant must be enrolled in a BC secondary school in a program that meets
regular UBC entry requirements.
• The applicant must have the written recommendation of the secondary school
principal.
• The applicant must have the written consent of the parent or legal guardian if
under the legal age of majority on the opening day of classes.
• The applicant must have the support of the Dean of the Faculty for the courses in
which the applicant plans to enroll.
Admission will initially be for one academic session but may be renewed with the
continued support of the school principal and the Faculty Dean. Normally no more
than 12 credits may be obtained by Concurrent Studies but students who continue to
have superior academic records and the support of their school principal may seek
permission from the appropriate Dean to enroll in further courses.
Students in Concurrent Studies will be treated as regular students in most respects
except that they may not register in a full range of courses. Standard transcripts will
be issued and fees and deadlines will be as for regular students.

Budget Committee
Dr. Williams, chair of the committee, presented the following report, which had been
circulated for information:
This year the President has established a new time line, aimed at preparing an
Operating Budget for the start of the fiscal year. The Senate Budget Committee (SBC)
is fully supportive of this initiative and has met on twelve occasions to date to
participate in detail in this process.
While the major preoccupation of the Committee has been with the GPOF Budget,
presentations on their portfolios by the various Vice-Presidents have been of their total
budgets. In particular, five-year plans have been presented for Ancillaries. The
Committee has also received reports on the
 Vancouver Senate 11905
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Continuing Studies
International Student Enrolments, and Projected Enrolments for the 1998/99 year. The
Vice-President, Academic has presented a set of principles to guide the budget
adjustments within this portfolio.
The challenge facing the University is to deal with the serious immediate financial
problem without compromising the future initiatives that may arise from the visioning
process. The Committee strongly supports the multi-year proposal, which seeks to
achieve this goal. Indeed, a move toward multi-year budgeting was recommended by
last year's SBC.
On a more detailed level, the Committee notes that the accrual method of accounting
has demonstrated the University's vulnerability with respect to future capital costs for
Utilities; the Committee greets with approval the one-time contribution from the
Ancillaries to help address the current year's deficit; the Committee notes the
elimination of GPOF funding to the Development Office together with a plan to raise
endowment funding to reduce the dependence of scholarship funds on GPOF sources.
The Committee notes that the Library Acquisitions budget has been increased in
accordance with the Budget Guidelines, but that cuts will nevertheless be required to
journal subscriptions. The Committee also heard a request from the Vice-President,
Research for a modest budget increase, which may be of strategic importance, but
which must nonetheless be deferred for future consideration. While the committee
remains concerned about the unavoidable negative effects of the proposed Budget on
academic programs and services, it believes that all reasonable efforts have been made
to deal with the financial shortfall.
In conclusion, the Senate Budget Committee recommends approval of the Budget
proposal, which it believes deals responsibly with the current situation and positions
the University to move strategically forward in the future. The Committee looks
forward to an opportunity to hear from the President and the Vice-President,
Academic regarding its detailed implementation later this Spring.
Dr. Williams stated that the President had presented the report to the Board of
Governors. He said that a fuller report will be brought to Senate in the fall.
Continuing Studies
Dr. Vanderstoep, chair of the committee, spoke briefly to the report on the Review of
Continuing Education at UBC, which had been circulated for information.
 Vancouver Senate 11906
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Curriculum Committee
Dr. Vanderstoep stated that the report covers a broad range of extremely important
continuing education activities, including the credit and non-credit division of Continuing
Studies and the Continuing Professional Programs that exist in eight Faculties in addition
to the division of Continuing Education Health Sciences.
Mr. Zuniga asked what is involved in the Intercultural Studies Certificate Program. Dr.
Uegama described the program as one which was established to provide a broader and
more general exposure to general issues of intercultural communications. Components of
this and other tailored programs are offered to a whole range of other cohorts, including,
for example, more sophisticated users of information, such as Korean business executives
who took programs in management development through the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration as well as intercultural communication skills programs from
continuing studies units. Dr. Uegama stated that a variety of professionals in the field
have worked with the Centre staff to develop these modules.
Curriculum Committee
See Appendix B.
Dr. Berger, chair of the committee, presented the report.
FACULTY OF ARTS
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of Arts,
subject to the following:
•    Arts B.A., Minor Program Requirements - change second sentence to read:
Students are encouraged to consult an adviser in their Faculty and see a
Departmental Adviser in Arts, preferably before taking the necessary courses.
 Vancouver Senate 11907
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Curriculum Committee
• Minor in Science - amend the second sentence by adding the word "recognized"
after the word courses, and add the following to the end of the description: "These
restrictions apply: B.A. Geography majors may not minor in any of the following
disciplines: Geography, Geology, Geophysics, or Oceanography. B.A. Mathematics
majors may not minor in B.Sc. Mathematics. B.A. Psychology majors may not
minor in B.Sc. Psychology.
• GEOG 311 - amend the statement of pre- or co-requisites to read: Six credits from
among GEOG 101, 102, 103, 200, 204, 205 or 207.
• GEOG 411 - amend the statement of pre- or co-requisites to read: Third or fourth
year standing and 6 credits from among GEOG 101, 102, 103, 200, 204, 205 or
207. Delete the following words from the description: "and how these
developments have been understood.", and the words "using case studies". The
hours should read: (1-0-2).
• RUSS 408-change 1917 to read 1918.
• SPAN 220 - change title to read: Introduction to Methods of Hispanic Literary
Analysis. Delete from the description the words "Basic techniques of literary
analysis through the " and insert the word "A" before "study".
• SPAN 356 - insert the word "Spanish" after "Peninsular" in the title.
• SPAN 430 - insert the word "Spanish" after "Peninsular" in the title.
Dr. Berger l        That the curriculum proposals from the
Dean Neuman J        Faculty of Arts be approved.
Dean Neuman drew attention to the committee's recommendation to change the title of
RUSS 408 from "Studies in Russian Prose before 1917" to "Studies in Russian Prose
before 1918" stating that the original wording reflected the department's intent and that
the committee's proposed change did not. Dr. Berger agreed that the title should read:
"Studies in Russian Prose before 1917".
Dean Neuman also questioned the proposed changes to SPAN 220 stating that from a
student's point of view the title and the description are going to look at odds with one
another. Dr. Berger stated that the committee would reconsider the matter.
 Vancouver Senate 11908
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Curriculum Committee
Mr. Zuniga asked whether enrolment in Spanish courses had increased. Dean Neuman
replied that enrolment in first and second year languages in Spanish had increased slightly
in the last two years, and that enrolment in senior level courses is stable. Mr. Zuniga then
asked if that was the case, why were Spanish courses being cut. Dean Neuman responded
that this consolidation of the curriculum is in response to an external review report which
pointed out that while enrolments were going up in lower level Spanish courses, and
remaining stable in senior courses, enrolments were actually quite small in the senior
courses, and that a decline in faculty numbers had led to a situation in which there were
numbers of courses on the books which in fact were not being offered on a regular basis
because there was no faculty to cover them, and no money to hire part-time faculty.
The motion was
put and carried.
FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES
The committee recommended approval of curriculum proposals from the Faculty of
Graduate Studies, subject to the following:
• EPSE 524 - the title is changing from Practicum in Speech Development with Deaf
and Hard of Hearing Students to Practicum in Speech and English Language
Development with Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students, not the other way round as
shown in the Faculty's proposal.
• FRST 590 and 592 - consultation with Civil Engineering requested.
• FRST 551 - add "Pass/Fail" to description.
• ANAT 516 - change " CNS" to " Central Nervous System"
• Family Studies - FRST should read FMST.

Dr. Gilbert J        Faculty of Graduate Studies be approved, with
the exception of FRST 592.

Liaison with Post-Secondary Institutions
Liaison with Post-Secondary Institutions
Dr. Uegama presented the report of the Committee on Liaison with Post-Secondary
Institutions which had been circulated for information. He stated that the committee is
searching for a new mandate, having been inactive for the past several years. A member of
the committee undertook a survey to assess the liaison activity between UBC academic
units and the equivalent of other units in the post-secondary system in British Columbia.
It was discovered that the vast majority of academic items are covered generally by other
mechanisms for articulation. The committee proposes that it will seek meetings with other
committees of Senate, and with corresponding liaison committees at other B.C.
universities and colleges. The committee will also undertake a survey of the post-
secondary institutions regarding the success of their liaison activities. Dr. Uegama hopes
the Committee will be prepared to report further progress in the fall.
Library Committee
Dr. Gilbert, chair of the committee, presented the following report which had been
circulated for information:
The Senate Library Committee's report is brought for information. However, I should
like to draw Senate's attention to a matter of deep and serious concern, referred to on
page 2 under "The Collections" and "The Future of Serials."
The acquisitions budget is seriously compromised by ever-increasing prices for library
materials. It is anticipated that our stabilization fund will be spent by next year, and
that in 1999-2000 the collections budget shortfall will be approximately $750,000.
Because the Library needs approximately one year's lead time to effect savings through
serials collections, and because consultation and review of serials subscriptions with
faculty must occur, the Library will this Fall begin to address the shortfall by asking
faculty members to delete a further 1,500-2,000 subscriptions from the collection.
 Vancouver Senate 11911
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Library Committee
It is important to note that between 1992 and 1998 the Library reduced its serials
holdings in all areas by approximately 5,400 subscriptions, a total value of
approximately $1.4 million.
The very severe problems confronting the university libraries of the world have been
addressed in a number of different forums, most recently in an article in the
Vancouver Sun. It is clear that the matter of serials subscriptions is one which now
falls beyond the scope of the Library and has become a major problem for each faculty
member. The widespread and increasingly used benchmark of published articles for
decisions concerning promotion and tenure has driven an industry now controlled
worldwide by essentially three major publishing companies. The Senate Library
Committee has discussed the enormous implications for scholarship associated with
what is in essence a monopoly on the publication of the works of the academic. It is
clear that giving away the copyright to our work has fed a system which now we have
very little possibility of controlling, without strenuous national and international
efforts. A number of different possible mechanisms for softening the impact of serials
cancellations are being considered and discussed by library staff. Regardless of such
discussions the long-term consequences of an ever-decreasing serials collection are
now starkly evident.
A recent report co-sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries, the Association
of American Universities and the Pew Higher Education Roundtable, has addressed
this critical issue and recommended collective action on the part of the universities,
libraries, scholarly and disciplinary organizations and granting agencies. The Senate
Library Committee essentially agrees with the assessment of the serials crisis contained
in that report and its conclusion on this critically important matter:
It is time for presidents of the nation's major research universities to fish or cut bait.
Dean Binkley asked whether there is any measure of the impact on the scholarly activity
at UBC of losing serial subscriptions. Dr. Gilbert responded that faculty members are
going outside the institution for material in increasing numbers. He also noted that that
there is now a huge reliance on electronic abstracts as an instrument of research since
there are very few full text journals on line.
Ms. Quinlan, the UBC Librarian, supported Dr. Gilbert's observation that interlending
activity is frequent, but added that the library system has never been able to
 Vancouver Senate 11912
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Nominating Committee
fully support the needs of conducting research and teaching activities at UBC. Dean
Binkley asked if the breakeven point has been found for document delivery vs. journal
subscriptions. Ms. Quinlan said that it has, and that in some cases there is more than one
subscription to a journal where high usage justifies it. Ms. Quinlan was optimistic that the
current crisis would actually create some efficiencies in the system, and some innovative
options, but she recognized that budget cuts are threatening collections in some areas.

 Vancouver Senate 11917
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Faculty of Science
Dr. Bluman drew attention to the Li Tze Fong Memorial Scholarships, created by an act
of generosity by Li Fook Tai to honour his father, Li Tze Fong. Dr. Bluman stated that Li
Fook Tai's son is a doctor at the University Hospital, his daughter is on the staff at UBC,
and his grandson is in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and has been a scholarship
recipient. The Scholarships come in the form of a $1.5 million gift, matched by the
Hampton Place Fund, for a total of $3 million.
The motion was
put and carried.
Faculty of Science
Dean Measday presented a proposal to formally recognize CORD, the Collaboration on
Repair Discoveries, as the academic research group of The University of British Columbia
dedicated to address the challenges of spinal cord injuries. The Centre takes an
interdisciplinary approach, including representation from biomedical science, clinical
health care and the community. CORD is supported by the Faculties of Science, Medicine
and Applied Science, the Rick Hansen Institute, and the Vancouver Hospital and Health
Sciences Centre.
Dean Measday l        That Senate recognize the Collaboration on
Dr. Berger i        Repair Discoveries as a unit of The University
of British Columbia
Dean Measday said that the Collaboration has been working successfully for a number of
years without formal recognition. The Faculty of Science approved it 3 years ago, but its
introduction to Senate was delayed by a proposal to integrate CORD into a larger
institute, the Brain and Spinal Cord Research Centre. It has since been decided to leave
the two entities distinctly separate, and instead to encourage inter-faculty collaborations
across the two institutions and with external research agencies.
 Vancouver Senate 11918
Minutes of May 20,1998	
Other business
Dean Isaacson questioned whether there was any particular advantage to distinguishing
the unit as a group rather than an institute or program or any other governance structure.
Dean Measday explained that in its present form the group can receive significant funding
from the Neurotrauma Fund at the Rick Hansen Institute. Also, the group designation
will make it possible to include a variety of Deans, rather than having a simple reporting
structure to a single Dean.
The motion was
put and carried.
Other business
There being no other business, the President reminded the assembly that this was the last
meeting of the 1997/98 academic year. She thanked senators for contributing to a
fulfilling and exciting past several months since her arrival.
Adjournment
The meeting adjourned at 10:20 p.m.
Next meeting
The next regular meeting of Senate will be held on Wednesday, September 16, 1998.
