Remarks from the Chair and Related Questions
IN MEMORIAM: MARY MARGARET YOUNG
The President noted with sadness the recent passing of Mary Margaret Young, a longtime
friend to the University. A memorial service had been held on December 13, 2005 at the
First Nations House of Learning. President Piper stated that Mrs. Young had demonstrated enormous commitment to UBC, and that there was no part of the University that
had not been touched by the quiet generosity of Mrs. Young and her late husband, Mr. W
Maurice Young. President Piper expressed, on behalf of members of Senate, condolences
to Mrs. Young's family.
TRIP TO CALGARY
The President recounted a recent trip to Calgary to attend an alumni event. Senators Dean
Isaacson and Ms. Quinlan, as well as several other UBC representatives, had accompanied
the President. Approximately 4,000 UBC alumni currently live in the Calgary region, and
the President reported that these alumni were eager to hear about UBC and reestablish
their connection to the University.
UPCOMING TRIP TO ASIA
The President reported that she was scheduled to travel to Asia for a ten-day period in
January 2006 to visit Hong Kong, Seoul, and Singapore. The President planned to meet
with representatives of many of UBC's sister institutions to thank them for their support

Report from the Chancellor
PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH
Dr. McEachern gave a brief update on the activities of the Presidential Search Committee.
The Committee had 21 members, and had met ten times to date. The Committee's membership, terms of reference, and a recently developed candidate profile were available at
http://www.bog.ubc.ca/presidentialsearch. The Committee had received numerous suggestions regarding appropriate candidates and expressions of interest, and was in the process of developing a short list of four or five candidates for more serious consideration.
The Chancellor noted that most of the candidates already held positions in the public eye,
and that their respective applications would therefore be kept in confidence until the
Committee had completed its work.
In response to a question from Dr. Friedrichs about whether the next President would necessarily come from an academic background, Dr. McEachern stated that the successful
candidate would need to be eligible for appointment as a full professor at the University.
Admissions Committee
Note: The full text of the Admissions Committee reports is not included in the Minutes.
Copies are available from the Assistant Registrar, Senate & Curriculum Services.
As Chair of the Committee, Dr. Berger presented the following admissions proposals for
approval.
1. Addition of Korean 11 to list of approved grade 11 language courses;
2. Addition of three First Nations Languages to list of approved grade 11 language
courses;

5. Changes to admission policy for the Faculty of Dentistry, Bachelor of Dental Science
in Dental Hygiene.
Dr. Berger l     That Senate approve the admissions
Dr. P. G. Harrison    J     proposals as presented.
DISCUSSION ON CANADIAN ABORIGINAL STUDENTS POLICY CHANGE
Dr. Bluman asked what measures were being taken to improve the experience of Aboriginal students at UBC. Mr. Silzer stated both recruiting Aboriginal students and providing
optimal support for student success remained important challenges for the University.
One complicating factor was that some Aboriginal students chose not to declare their status, making it difficult to obtain an accurate count of such applicants and students.
There was some discussion about whether Aboriginal applicants should be required to
obtain a letter of reference from a recognized Aboriginal organization or community
leader. Although indication of support from the Aboriginal community was considered
important, Dr. Berger noted that this requirement might act as a deterrent to the significant number of prospective students in the Lower Mainland who were not affiliated with
a particular band.
The motion was
put and carried.
Agenda Committee
As Chair of the Committee, Dean Isaacson presented the Agenda Committee's reports.
DISSOLUTION OF INTERIM ACADEMIC GOVERNING BODY FOR UBC
OKANAGAN
Dean Isaacson presented the following report for the information of members of Senate.
On February 23, 2005, Senate established the Interim Academic Governing Body
for UBC Okanagan and delegated to it powers with respect to academic governance during the period of transition. Senate directed, in part, as follows:
 Vancouver Senate 05-06 - 40
Minutes of December 14, 2005
Agenda Committee, continued
"That [the IAGB] be dissolved upon the establishment of the
Senate for UBC Okanagan."
The Okanagan Senate has been established and held its first meeting on December
5, 2005. In accordance with the above Vancouver Senate directive, the Agenda
Committee hereby reports that the IAGB has been dissolved.
Respectfully submitted,
Michael Isaacson
Chair, Agenda Committee
Vancouver Senate
COUNCIL OF SENATES ESTABLISHMENT
Dean Isaacson reported that the report of the ad hoc Committee to Consider the Council
of Senates, which had been previously endorsed by the Vancouver Senate, had not been
similarly endorsed by the Okanagan Senate at its December 5 meeting. Concern among
Okanagan Senators had focused on the proposal that the number of Chairs of Senate
Committees appointed to the Council be lower for the Okanagan Senate than for the Vancouver Senate. Members of the Okanagan Senate had expressed the desire that such representation be equal.
Dean Isaacson reported that he had consulted with the Chairs of the two ad hoc Committees charged to consider the establishment of the Council of Senates, the University Council, and the Secretariat to the Senates, and that this group's recommendation was that the
President proceed to establish the Council of Senates in a way that was consistent with the
University Act, such that the Council could begin its operations. The Council could then
independently consider the issue of equal versus unequal representation for the two campuses.
The President indicated that she had received this recommendation, and that she would
report back to Senate after having reached a decision.

Proposed Agenda Items
REPORT FROM AGENDA COMMITTEE ON PROPOSED SENATE AGENDA ITEMS
As Agenda Committee Chair, Dean Isaacson presented the following report for information.
Senators will recall that Senate has approved recommendation 9 of the ad hoc
Committee for the Review of Senate, requiring that a standing item entitled "Proposed Agenda Items" be added to each Senate agenda. The Agenda Committee
wishes to draw the attention of Senators to this new standing item and to invite
their participation.
Reports and other documentation for circulation to Senators and inclusion on the
Senate agenda are normally submitted to the Assistant Registrar, Senate & Cur-
 Vancouver Senate 05-06 - 44
Minutes of December 14, 2005
Proposed Agenda Items, continued
riculum Services two weeks in advance of a Senate meeting, and this practice will
be continued.
Under "Proposed Agenda Items," Senators are encouraged to advise Senate of
topics of interest that they wish to see on a future agenda, along with a brief rationale. Alternatively, Senators may forward ideas directly to the Agenda Committee
at any time.
In order to ensure that Senators are suitably informed on the consideration of
proposed agenda items, discussion of such items will not normally occur spontaneously. Rather, the disposition of proposed agenda items will be considered by
the Agenda Committee. In some instances these items may appear on the following meeting agenda. In some instances, they may initially be referred to a Senate
committee, so that Senate's discussion of a topic is suitably informed by a committee report. As well, general-interest topics may be included on the agenda of a
Senate meeting that is focused on selected broad academic issues. (Senate has
approved a recommendation of the ad hoc Review Committee, that at least one
Senate meeting per year include a thorough consideration of selected broad academic issues.)
Respectfully submitted,
Michael Isaacson
Chair, Agenda Committee

AUCC MEMBERSHIP AND DEGREE RECOGNITION
Dr. Dennison drew attention to the policy of many Ontario universities not to recognize
degrees or coursework from post-secondary institutions who were not members of the
Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. He asked whether there had been any
discussion about this policy at the Admissions Committee. Dr. Berger replied that the
Committee had not yet discussed that particular issue.

Previously-Approved Awards With Changes in Terms or Funding Source:
Award OHIO - David and Blanche GWYNNE-VAUGHAN Memorial Scholarship: (revised
description) Scholarships totalling $33,000 have been endowed through a bequest by Adelaide
Ann Vaughan Batemen as a memorial to her parents, David Edward and Eva Blanche Gwynne-
Vaughan. The scholarships are offered to promising and deserving graduate students in Religious
Studies or to undergraduate students in their second, third or fourth year of an honours, major or
minor program in Religious Studies, with a preference where possible for students focusing on
the area of Christian Studies. In adjudicating the award, consideration is given, not only to academic achievement, but also to personal qualities and character. The awards are made on the recommendation of the Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies and, in the case
of graduate students, in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
How amended? This award was originally established by Mrs. Batemen in the mid-1950's as a
very modest annually-funded scholarship for second or third year undergraduate students who
proposed to go on to work in theology at the Vancouver School of Theology. Many years later,
Mrs. Bateman left a significant bequest to endow this scholarship but, by that time, the University was rarely if ever receiving applications from students who fulfilled the award terms. After
extended discussions with UBC Legal Counsel and with the Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies, it was decided to seek a Cy-pres order through the courts to vary the
terms of the bequest. UBC's request was granted by the Supreme Court of B.C. in July 2005. The
above revised description implements the terms of the Court's order.
Award 04619 - Abdul Ladha Scholarship: (revised description) A $1,000 scholarship has been
endowed for a student entering the Science One Program from a B.C. secondary school, with first
preference given to a student from King George Secondary School in Vancouver and second preference to a student from any secondary school in the Burnaby School District. An additional
scholarship of $1,000 may be offered in some years, without geographic restriction, to any student entering Science One from secondary school. The awards are made on the recommendation
of the Director of Science One.
How amended? This award was previously endowed within the Faculty of Science, with funds
for the annual scholarship being journal-vouchered each year from the Faculty of Science to Stu-

dent Financial Assistance and Awards. With the donor's consent, the scholarship endowment is
now being moved to SFAA and the Faculty of Science fund will be closed. The award terms themselves have not changed.
Award 01968 - Margaret and Peter LUKASEVICH Memorial Graduate Prize in Early Childhood
Education: (revised description) A $610 prize has been endowed in memory of Margaret and
Peter Lukasevich by their daughters, Dr. Ann Lukasevich and Mrs. Margaret Tousignant. It is
awarded to a graduate student whose scholarly work informs practice in early childhood education. Preference is given to students who have experience working with or teaching young children between the ages of three and eight. The award is made on the recommendation of the
Faculty of Education in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
How amended? Previously, the award was restricted only to graduate students in the Early Childhood Education program. The terms have now been made somewhat more general to give the
Faculty greater latitude in selecting recipients. The Lukasevichs' other daughter, Margaret Tousignant, has also been added to the description as a principal donor.
Award 06362 -James and Setsuko THURLOW Graduate Scholarship in Peace and Disarmament
Studies: (revised description) Scholarships totalling $5,000 have been endowed by James and Setsuko Thurlow and by The University of British Columbia for graduate students pursuing studies
in disarmament or weapons of mass destruction (primarily nuclear weapons). The award is made
on the recommendation of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
How amended? The previous description directed the award to students "pursuing studies in
peace and disarmament or nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction". Mrs. Thurlow is a
survivor of the bombing Hiroshima and the couple have now concluded that the original terms
were not focused as well as they could be, in that the inaugural award recipients were not actually doing work on disarmament. They hope that the revised terms will result in the selection of
future scholarship winners whose research will be more specific to the areas which interest the
donors.
