- Homecoming '93
UBC opens
doors for
by Abe Hefter
Staff writer
Bigger and better. That's how
organizers have billed this year's
Homecoming celebrations running on
campus Sept. 30 through Oct. 3.
Deborah Apps, executive director of
UBC's Alumni Association, said
r * Homecoming '93 promises to invigorate
both current students and returning
alumni through traditional events like
class reunions, the Great Trekker
reception and the Arts '20 relay.
As well, a special day of events has
been organized on Oct. 2 appealing to
people of all ages in the. A photography
exhibition at the Asian Centre, a chemistry
magic show and children's carnival are
just some of the planned attractions.
'' Please turn to Page 12 for a
r» complete schedule of
Homecoming events
Of course, few events can muster the
spirit generated by the homecoming
football game which this year pits the
Thunderbirds against San Francisco State.
"Alumni want to feel that they are part
of UBC on an ongoing basis and they see
homecomings as an opportunity to
reconnect," said Apps. "At the same time,
we are proud of UBC and its achievements
and want to make sure that the association
gets that message out to graduates and
the community at large."
. > Chaired by Bob Hindmarch, the
Homecoming Management Committee
pulled together many areas of campus,
including the Bookstore, Parking and
Security Services, the Aquatic Centre and
.,    Food Services.
However, Apps said students, through
'"" the Alma Mater Society, deserve much of
the credit for cultivating the relationship
between the university and the
surrounding community. She cited the
society's Great Trekker Award as a
"*    perennial homecoming highlight.
This year's award, given annually by
the students of UBC to a graduate who
has achieved eminence in his or her field,
goes to Byron Hender, executive coordinator of Academic and Student Services.
In addition, a special Great Trek
luncheon for 1916-30 grads is scheduled
• *   for Oct.   1  to honour the outstanding
individuals and historical events of UBC's
past. Nestor Korchinsky, an assistant
professor in the School of Human Kinetics
and intramurals co-ordinator,  is this
a year's recipient of the Blythe Eagles
Volunteer Service Award.
' *" Other events on Oct. 1 include tours of
the Botanical Garden, a Commerce '83
reunion, International House drop-in,
Oktoberfest, men's and women's soccer,
with UBC taking on the University of
* Victoria, and a production of The Love of
the Nightingale at Frederic Wood Theatre.
Homecoming '93 wraps up Oct. 3 with
the family croquet tournament (which
still has room for more entries) the Native
Youth Program and a Cantonese Opera
performance atthe Museum ofAnthropology,
and the Place Vanier Barbecue.

Images of campus are reflected in Sedgewick Library's mirrored cones. The cones are slated to be removed once
Sedgewick is integrated into the new library centre, which will soon be under contraction. The result, planners
say, will be a more attractive and pedestrian-friendly Main Mall.
Armoury beams down, not out
by Gavin Wilson
Staff writer
The old Armoury has been demolished,
but it's not going away. The building's
huge timbers will be salvaged and moved
across the street, re-bom as part of the
C.K. Choi Institute of Asian Research.
Re-using the timbers is part of a far-
reaching plan to make the research
institute the most environmentally
sensitive structure on campus and a
model for future construction, say
members of UBC's Campus Planning and
Development Office.
"Our hope is that this building will be
the first of many constructed using
environmentally responsible techniques,"
said Freda Pagani, Campus Planning's
associate director, project development.
UBC Reports reviews current and
future building projects on
campus.  Please see Page 5.
The $5-million project, to house
resource and research space for Asian
Studies programs, is being designed by
Matsuzaki Wright Architects Inc.
It should set new standards for
sustainable design, construction and
operation, said Pagani, who added there
are few buildings in the world constructed
to such specifications.
One of the construction guidelines is
that at least 50 per cent of the building
materials be re-used or recycled.
That's where the 52-year-old Armoury
fits in. Some of the material salvaged
from the building, especially its heavy
timber beams and decking, will be reused in the new project.
The Armoury's beams, which range in
length from three to 14 metres, were cut

building will be the first of
many constructed using
responsible techniques."
- Freda Pagani
from first-growth timber more than 50
years ago. They are longer, stronger and
more attractive than any wood available
today, Pagani said.
Other guidelines for the institute's
construction include: capturing 100 per
cent of rain water on site for landscape
watering, cutting water consumption in
half, installing composting toilets not
connected to sewer lines, restore and
reintroduce natural vegetation, and taking
the health of future occupants into
consideration when choosing building
Materials will also be chosen because
they are simple, economical, durable and.
if not re-used or recycled, then taken
from sustainable sources. Even indoor
plants may be selected to improve air
Energy consumption will be drastically
reduced through extensive use of daylight
and natural ventilation combined with
state-of-the-art lighting and energy
management systems.
Pagani said the institute was chosen
to serve as an environmental model
because it is a simpler project than the
large research laboratories going up
elsewhere on campus.
Even so, engineers, architects and
contractors are grappling with the
technical challenges posed by the
environmental guidelines, sometimes
learning how to do things in entirely new

West Parkade
serves needs
In response to the letter
"Construction of parking spots
unwarranted" by Sue Eldridge
(UBC Reports, Sept 2), I would
like to clarify a few points. The
West Parkade was constructed
to replace the loss of 1200
spaces in A and L lots, for
faculty, staff and visitors. At
present, the West Parkade is
75 to 80 per cent full. With the
recent student permit lottery of
200 spaces, the lot should be
100 per cent full by the end of
this month.
It is difficult to say what
class of architecture parkades
fall into, but I feel that a lot of
care and attention went into
the landscaping and design of
this structure and it is an
improvement on the previous
huts and gravel parking.
Rhododendrons, azaleas,
roses, flowering cherry trees,
Japanese maples and climbing
vines have all been
incorporated into the
landscaping. As well, attention
has been paid to openness,
lighting and safety in this new
parkade. The parkade also
serves beach and park users
and campus visitors, which in
turn helps cut the costs of
faculty and staff permits.
The Rose Garden has not
been "devastated" but will be
replaced and expanded above
the-underground parkade. New
roses will be planted, exotic
species replanted, and the view
will be improved. UBC's
university planner, in
conjunction with Parking &
Security Services and
Engineering, has carefully
thought out the logistics
behind both parkades, not
haphazardly, as suggested.
The Rose Garden Parkade will
replace meters lost in the
North Lot and Main Mall, as
well as serve parking needs for
Green College, the Museum of
Anthropology, Buchanan
evening courses and the future
Performing Arts Centre.
In addition to the well-
planned, safe and necessary
new parkades, UBC has
developed initiatives for car
pooling and cycling, as well as
with B.C. Transit.

Yeltsin gift
In the August 12th edition
of UBC Reports, in the
"Offbeat" column was a report
about UBC presenting
President Boris Yeltsin with a
UBC engineers jacket,
"complete with Lady Godiva
If true, this is deeply
disappointing and in bad taste.
One would have thought that
the university would have been
so thoroughly embarrassed by
the Lady Godiva ritual that it
would have disallowed it by
now. That apparently the
university not only fails to
understand the sexism of the
ritual but perpetuates it in a
gift to a visiting head of state
shows how much remains to
be done for women to be
respected at this university,
and for men to learn that
gender ridicule is simply
It is equally disappointing
that UBC Reports could report
this item in such a light-
hearted, off-hand manner.
You mention that President
Yeltsin didn't keep the gift,
perhaps because "Red isn't a
very popular colour in Russia
these days." It would be nice
to think it was because
institutionalized sexism isn't
something a president would
want to be seen wearing on his

understand    the    levels    of
complexity involved in building
responsibly," Pagani said.
Although using novel
construction techniques and
ideas, the project will not be any
more        expensive        than
conventional buildings.
"It wouldn't be a good
demonstration building if it cost
more." Pagani said.
The project is expected to go
to tender next spring, with
completion slated for the autumn
of 1995.

UBC library gets
$1-million boost
by Gavin Wilson
Staff writer
Budget increases totalling $1 million
over the next two years have been
earmarked for development of electronic
library services at UBC.
'The special funding is in recognition
of the need to maintain the growth and
value of library services in the electronic
information age," said Bernard Sheehan,
associate vice-president. Information and
Computer Systems.
"The library will use the increase to
rapidly expand the availability of material
in electronic formats." he said.
The library is currently developing a
process to decide how the new funding
will be spent. Materials likely to be
purchased include full text, numeric,
image and bibliographic databases. All
major subject areas will benefit, including
humanities, social sciences, commerce,
education and the life and physical
The special increase for the electronic
library is made possible by changes in
priorities in the office ofthe Vice-president,
Student and Academic Services. The
changes were made in response to a
Board of Governors resolution requiring
that the university improve the library's
ranking by the Association of Research
The special ongoing budget increase is
in addition to the regular annual
collections budget increase which follows
an established formula. This fiscal year,
the collections budget increase is
In a related development, a new service
offering networked information to all
undergraduate and graduate students
will be introduced this fall.
The service, called Netlnfo, was created
after the report of the task force on the
appropriate use of information technology
recommended that the university provide
more access to networked information,
including the resources on Internet, to all
members of the university community.
Students who have computers and
basic communications hardware and
software will be able to use the Netlnfo
service via telephone dial-in or through
network connections for up to 20 minutes
a day. Basic free services include E-mail,
a campus-wide information service called
ViewUBC, Internet News and the ClariNet
electronic newspaper. Extended services
will be available on a fee-for-service basis.
Netlnfo. which was developed by University
Computing Services, is currently available
to students in the Faculty of Education
on a trial basis and will be available to all
students later this fall.
Oyster River facility opens
by Gavin Wilson
Staff writer
A new million-dollar facility that turns
organic waste products into useful
compost opened Sept. 24 at UBC's Oyster
River Research Farm on Vancouver Island.
The Pacific Bio-waste Recovery Facility
combines fish waste and wood chips, and
then uses state-of-the-art technologies to
make compost. Use of the fish waste
helps alleviate disposal problems for the
local fisheries industry.
The UBC-managed facility was built
by a non-profit society which includes
the university, the B.C. Ministry of
Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, the
Mount Washington Community Futures
Committee and local fish processing and
fish farming industries.
"Pacific Bio-waste is an excellent
example of what can be accomplished
with the co-operation of industry,
government and universities," said Jim
Richards, dean of the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences.
As well as disposing offish waste, the
facility will generate funds to promote
and support research related to the
composting of organic wastes. Information
about the facility, its technolgy and research
will be shared with interested parties.
"This facility is meant to serve not only
fish processors and farmers but the entire
community by promoting the development
of composting and enhanced biological
waste management in other sectors ofthe
economy." said facility manager Brian Egan.
More than 2,500 tonnes of fish waste
is generated in central Vancouver Island
each year, mainly by fish processors and
salmon farms and hatcheries.
Traditional methods of waste disposal,
such as dumping into the sea or in
landfills, are no longerviewed as adequate.
The new facility, which can process
about 75 tonnes of waste per week, has
more than enough capacity to meet the
needs of local industry, Egan said.
The facility uses agitated-bed
technology — daily turning along with
aeration and water sprinkling, used in
conjunction with automated temperature
monitoring — to manage continuous
reactions in 50-metre-long bays.
The 21 -day composting process takes
place in an air-tight building which
features odour and waste water control.
Pacific Bio-waste has been up and
running for two months and recently
made its first sale of compost, which acts
as a natural, organic soil enhancer for
use in agriculture, forestry and domestic

Role of male bias explored
by Charles Ker
Staff writer
The rights of Canadian women and
minority groups have a bleak future if the
public can't recognize the white, male
bias that infuses Canada's past, a UBC
research team concludes.
To help Canadians better understand
the "malestream authorities" that have
shaped this country's culture, politics
and social policy, four UBC faculty
members have embarked on a project
called The Construction of Canada: The
Changing Meaning of Race and Gender
1860s to 1990s.
"Viewpoints that routinely ignore or
distort the experience and needs of non-
European racial and ethnic groups and
women have been commonplace and
powerful in moulding present-day
Canada," said historian Veronica Strong-
Boag, the project's principal investigator.
Joining Strong-Boag in the three-year
study are literary critic and English Prof.
Sherrill Grace,  nurse-sociologist Joan
Anderson and political scientist Avigail
Despite claims of impartiality, Strong-
Boag said Canadians' impressions have
been guided by historians, writers and
policy-makers who have shared a narrow
view of the country's best interests.
"The development of laws and programs
guaranteeing the right of women to
equality cannot proceed without a full
recognition of the problematic nature of
this dominating view," said Strong-Boag.
"So long as the bias of much history,
literature, politics and public policy
remains unexplored, its failings cannot
be addressed."
As for solutions, Strong-Boag said the
research team will evaluate the promise
of an "anti-racist, feminist vision of
Canada" which has emerged recently in
writing and debate on history, politics,
culture and health care.
Funded through a Social Sciences and
Humanities Research Council grant of
$125,000, the UBC team expects to
complete the study by 1996.
The value of inclusion
by Daniel Birch
The following article is based on
comments made by UBC Vice-
president Academic and Provost
Daniel Birch at the recent opening of
the President's Lecture Series in
Lesbian and Gay Studies. For more
information on the three-month lecture
series turn to the Calendar section on
Page 6 or call 822-5358.
A university must be a place in
which the conversation of learning is
enriched by inclusion -- inclusion of
voices which, for one reason or
another, have not been heard. In
sponsoring this series in lesbian and
gay studies, UBC is recognizing that
important and challenging work is
being done on issues of sexual
identity and sexual orientation.
In recent decades a Eurocentric
has been
enriched by
inclusion of
the ideas and
traditions of
other parts of
the world
and we have
challenged to
recognize the
diversity of
our own
society.  First
Nations programs have brought with
them cultural enrichment, and the
recognition that First Peoples must
be given voice if the university is to be
their institution too, and if its
resources are to serve their needs.
Feminism has challenged our
thinking and practice in many fields
of inquiry.  Just as late 20th century
students find it hard to conceive that
in order to be heard a woman novelist
had once to publish as a man, so it
seems incomprehensible that
scholars could ignore the experience
of women and generate theories of
human social behaviour based solely
on the study of men.  In one field
after another, feminization of the
discourse has generated intellectual
ferment and threatened to transform
the discipline.
The establishment of the
President's Lecture Series in Lesbian
and Gay Studies constitutes public
recognition that recent work in the
field is having an impact on
literature, art, history, law, education
-- indeed on most areas of our
academic life. The university, as a
resource to the community, must
reflect both the diversity of its
constituency and the intellectual
importance of the new work being done.
In the last few years UBC has
begun to respond to concerns in this
area.  In 1990 some events ofthe
Gay Games were held on campus —
yet this decision on access was taken
only after some uncertainty and
public controversy.  When it was
made, it marked a firm commitment
by the university that lesbian and
gay organizations would have access
to its facilities on the same basis as
other community groups.
In 1991, the university extended
all employment benefits to same-sex
partners on the basis of equality with
heterosexual partners.   It did so on
the first request that this step be
taken to fulfil the longstanding
pledge in the agreement between the
university and the Faculty
Association that there would be no
discrimination at UBC on the basis
of sexual orientation.    I reconfirm
the university's commitment to
equality and non-discrimination.
In the university context, we value
our liberal traditions and assume
ourselves to be relatively enlightened
and unprejudiced.  Sometimes
particular events force us to
recognize the individual and systemic
discrimination at work in our society
and, indeed, in our university, but all
too often we see it not in particular
events but in the cumulative and
insidious effects of pervasive
attitudes. To deal with it, we must
begin (again and again) by naming
racism, misogyny and homophobia
when we encounter them.
If we take seriously our role in
forming the future leaders of
society, we will challenge not only
their ideas but their attitudes,
values and beliefs and the resulting
behaviour.  We recognize that we
are engaged in an exercise at once
intellectual, cultural and political in
terms of what the McGill
philosopher Charles Taylor calls the
politics of recognition.
With the president's sponsorship
of this lecture series in lesbian and
gay studies, the university is
recognizing that its academic life
includes the scholarship, insights
and work of the artists, academics
and activists who are challenging all
of us to understand the meaning and
richness of the range of sexual
identities in our lives.  As an
institution we have recognized that
we are impoverished by exclusion
and enriched by inclusion —
inclusion of First Nations issues,
inclusion of gender issues and
inclusion of the issues of sexual
identity and sexual orientation.

national Mental Illness Awareness Week
Oct. 4 to 10, will feature discussions on
family and marital issues in manic-
depressive illness, the importance of self-
help groups, and manic-depression from
a patient's perspective.
Statistics indicate that one in every
100 Canadians suffers from bipolar
"Patients with manic-depressive
illness, or bipolar disorder, have both
clinical depressions and episodes of
mania," explained Dr. Raymond Lam,
forum co-ordinator and director of UBC's
Mood Disorders Clinic.
"When manic, they are euphoric,
hyperactive, have no need for sleep and
have an exaggerated sense of self-
importance or grandiosity. Unfortunately,
these patients also have poor
concentration, are extremely distracted
and show impulsive judgement leading to
high risk behaviours."
In addition to Lam, who will present
information on the latest treatments for
manic depression, the panel will comprise
representatives from UBC's Marital
Discord Clinic, the Mood Disorders
Association of B.C. and the Kitsilano
Community Care Team.
The two-hour forum gets underway at
7 p.m. in lecture hall 6 of the Woodward
Instructional Resources Centre at
University Blvd. and Wesbrook Mall. For

Library, art gallery, housing planned
UBC expansion enters new phase
by Gavin Wilson
Staff writer
The multi-million-dollar expansion of UBC's main campus is set to enter
a new phase, with several major projects either gearing up or already under
On the drawing board is an art gallery, a major student residence, the first
phase ofthe new library, and research facilities for 21 st century technologies.
This is the latest round in a $275-million boom of new construction
occurring on campus in the next five to 10 years.
The expansion began in the late 1980s,
spurred on by the World of Opportunity
fund-raising campaign and a one-time
pledge of $75 million in capital funding
from the provincial government.
Most ofthe construction scheduled for
the coming year is concentrated near the
north and south ends ofthe main campus.
One ofthe largest projects is the $20.4-
million Advanced Materials and Process
Engineering Building. Tender is expected
to be awarded this fall, with construction
beginning soon after.
Designed by A.P.R.A./Hemingway
Nelson, it will be located on East Mall
between the Civil and Mechanical
Engineering Building and the Pulp and
Paper Research Centre.
The building will provide shared space
and resources for the interdisciplinary
efforts of faculty and students from six
departments in the faculties of Science
and Applied Science as well as from
Funded by the provincial government,
the new building will allow projects to be
taken to the industrial prototype level in
fields such as space-age alloys, electronic
materials, plastics and superconductors.
The $35-milIion Thunderbird student
housing complex is currently under
construction along Thunderbird
Boulevard, between East and West malls.
Financed by Student Housing, the 405-
unit complex will help UBC move toward
its goal of housing 25 per cent of the
student body in on-campus residences.
It will also link two existing student
residential areas. Totem Park and
The residences are expected to be ready
for occupancy by the fall of 1994 and will
house between 630 and 800 students.
The nearby Centre for Integrated
Computer Systems Research (CICSR)/
Computer Science building on Main
Mall was completed in mid-September.
Designed by the architectural firm
Chernofi" Thompson, construction ofthe
$ 17.5-million building was funded by the
provincial government.
It provides space for the departments
of Computer  Science  and   Electrical
Engineering as well as for CICSR. Its labs
house interdisciplinary projects and
industrial collaborations in fields such as
computer imaging, animation, robotics
and artificial intelligence.
Also undergoing significant change is
the north end of campus.
The Morris and Helen Belkin Art
Gallery, designed by Peter Cardew
Architects, is a $3-million building to be
located on Main Mall adjacent to the
Frederic Wood Theatre.
The gallery will give UBC the ability to
display fine arts in a building that meets
international standards and provide a
home to UBC's own art collection, now
scattered in various locations around
The gallery is funded by the Morris and
Helen Belkin Foundation with matching
grants from the provincial government.
Tender will soon be awarded for
construction and completion is slated for
the end of 1994.
The first phase of the Walter C.
Koerner Library should go to tender in
October, with construction slated to begin
in January at the site between Sedgewick
Library and the Mathematics building.
Sedgewick will be incorporated into
the new five-storey library and its links
with Main Mall, which obstruct pedestrian
walkways, will be cut. One entrance is
already permanently closed.
When future phases are constructed,
the Koerner Library will replace the
existing Main Library. Plans for the Main
Library include demolishing its wings
and retaining the historic core building
for purposes yet to be determined.
The new library, and a retrofit and
seismic upgrade of Sedgewick, will cost
$24 million. Half that total, including a
major gift from philanthropist Walter
Koerner, will come from the fund-raising
campaign. Government matching funds
will provide the rest.
Construction will continue at Green
College this fall, although residential
units will open in September. Completion
is scheduled for December.
Outstanding students, researchers and
academics from different disciplines will

Shown above are planned construction projects at the north
end of Main Mall, a core area of campus that is being
dramatically re-shaped.
The southern fringe of the main campus is being ringed with
student housing, while new high-tech research facilities
cluster in the engineering end of campus.

work and live together at the college.
Sixty-four units are already rented.
The $14-million project was made
possible by a $7-million gift from Cecil
Green, a former UBC student and co-
founder ofTexas Instruments. Matching
funds were provided by the provincial
The Rose Garden Parkade. currently
under construction at the north end of
Main Mall, isa$15.6-million, self-funding
project that will provide 950 parking
spaces. An improved Rose Garden will
top the underground structure. It is
scheduled for completion in August. 1994.
Elsewhere on campus, the tender has
been awarded for construction ofthe first
phase ofthe Faculty of Education's Scarfe
Building expansion and renovation, a
$15-million project funded by the
provincial government.
The project will replace substandard
buildings and consolidate faculty activities
which are now dispersed in 19 locations
around campus.
A curriculum library will be built in the
courtyard on the west side ofthe existing
building and a teacher education office
will be added to the Main Mall side.
Completion is slated for June, 1995. As
well, the existing building will receive a
major facelift.
The Brock Hall addition, a $9.3-million
project jointly funded by the provincial
government and UBC, recently opened.
It consolidates student services — such
as the Registrar's Office, Student Housing,
Awards and Financial Aid and the
Disability Resource Centre — under one
roof and improves communications
among departments.
Also nearing completion is the second
phase of the university apartments at
2875 Osoyoos Crescent. The $9.7-million
building, financed through a mortgage,
will offer housing for new faculty and staff
The next round of construction is slated
to begin next summer. Some ofthe major
projects which will begin then include:
Chan Shun Centre, a $23-million
campaign building located between
Crescent Road and Marine Drive.
Designed by Bing Thom architects, the
centre will feature a mid-sized
performance hall.
The Institute of Asian Research is a
$5-million campaign building that will
provide a focus on campus for research
on Pacific Rim nations. It will be located
adjacent to the Asian Centre.
The Student Recreation Centre is a
$9-million campaign building to be built
next to Mclnnes Field, east ofthe Student
Union Building.
It will house space for int ramural sports
and other student recreation activities.
Funding will be provided by the Alma
Mater Society writh matching funds from
the provincial government.
Site preparation has begun for
construction of the National Research
Council's Institute for Machinery
Research. Located on 16th Avenue, the
institute will develop intelligent
mechanisms to run equipment for
resource-based industries.
Completion of the project is expected
in March 1995. 6 UBC Reports ■ September 30,1993

UBC will act responsibly and
demonstrate stewardship in protecting
the environment. All individuals in the
University community share the
responsibility for protecting the
environment. Administrative heads of
unit are responsible for ensuring
compliance with legislation and UBC
procedures both on and off campus.
In order to fulfill UBC's mandate for
teaching, research and service,
procedures and reporting structures for
matters of compliance with environmental
legislation are necessary to demonstrate
due diligence of UBC, its Board of
Governors, senior officers, students, and
members  of faculty  and  staff,   by
addressing responsibly activities which
have potential for exposure to lawsuits
and prosecution.
"Where a corporation commits an
offence under this Act, any officer, director
or agent of the corporation who directed,
authorized, assented to or acquiesced in
or participated in the commission of the
offence is a party to and guilty of the
offence, and is liable to punishment
provided for the offence, whether or not
the corporation has been prosecuted or
convicted."... Section 122 ofthe Canadian
Environmental Protection Act
Procedures, guidelines and programs
addressing specific environmental issues
will be developed and updated as required
to accomplish the objective of compliance
with environmental legislation, with the
full participation of the University
community. These will include evaluation
guidelines and monitoring procedures,
effective measures of progress, reporting
mechanisms, educational programs, and
contingency plans for accidents that affect
the environment.
The Coordinator of Environmental
Protection, reporting through the Vice
President Administration & Finance, will
be responsible for focusing efforts on the
most serious problems, promoting
development of environmental plans and
coordinating activities through
administrative heads of unit. These efforts
include environmental audits, central
monitoring, recording and reporting
progress (and instances of noncompliance) on environmental protection
issues, providing training to the campus
community and serving as the central
information source about current and
anticipated legislation applicable to UBC
as well as providing linkages for
sustainable development efforts.
Environmental audits will be performed
of all areas and activities under the control
of the University.    Audits will include
evaluation of waste, emissions, hazardous
materials, emergency response
procedures and the adequacy of training
of students, faculty and staff. Suchaudits
will measure the extent of compliance
with federal and provincial legislation
and identify potential environmental
A plan will be developed by the
administrative head of unit for bringing
all identified deficiencies into compliance
with legislation, in consultation with the
Coordinator of Environmental Protection,
and will be forwarded to the Vice President
responsible for the unit for approval of
actions, timing, and funding.
Monitoring systems and procedures
for handling and reporting accidents/
incidents will be established for all
activities and areas of concern.
Administrative heads of unit are
responsible for ensuring that the
monitoring is carried out in accordance
with established systems and for reporting
on the monitoring to both the unit's vice
president and the Coordinator of
Environmental Protection. Deficiencies
detected through monitoring or other
means will be corrected as soon as
When the impact or experimental
design of activities to be conducted at off
campus locations has unknown or
potentially harmful environmental
consequences, the member of faculty or
staff responsible will apply in advance for
a certificate of environmental protection
from a University screening committee
on the environment to review and
authorize such activities. Research
protocols, consistent with practices
approved by the screening committee for
individual experiments, may be
authorized by the screening committee
for experiments which are to be repeated.
These steps are necessary because ofthe
university's potential liability for problems
arising from off-campus activities.
Administrative heads of unit are
responsible for ensuring communication
about the goal of compliance with
environmental legislation and appropriate
training of all persons working or studying
within their units in relevant
environmental issues and procedures for
recognizing, dealing with and reporting
accidents that affect the environment.
Reports of all audits, plans for
correcting deficiencies, reports on
satisfying monitoring requirements,
accident-handling procedures and any
minor accidents/incidents will be
brought, through the senior officers of
the University, to the Board ofGovernors
at its regular meetings. Any accidents/
incidents of significant environmental
impact will be brought to the attention of
the Chair of the Board of Governors by
the President or his/her designate
When potentially harmful conditions
arise or are discovered, the administrative
head of unit is responsible for notifying
individuals who might be affected and
keeping them aware of efforts to correct
the situation (see also the Industrial
Health and Safety Regulations of the
Workers' Compensation Board of B.C.).
The Coordinator of Environmental
Protection ensures that consultations with
the campus and surrounding
communities about the state of
compliance and progress toward it take
The Coordinator of Environmental
Protection will publish annually a report
which includes information on the audits
conducted, the compliance issues dealt
with and outstanding, training and
communication activities, and responses

Due diligence means the care a
reasonable person would take, having
regard to all the circumstances and
information about which that person knew
or ought to have known.
Environment means the biophysical
conditions under which people or things
live or are developed.
Environmental audit means a
systematic, objective method of identifying
and verifying that regulations, procedures
and University guidelines for
environmental, health, occupational
hygiene, safety and emergency
preparedness standards are being
followed. The examination involves
analysis, testing and confirmation of
procedures and practices. In addition,
the process evaluates the adequacy ofthe
environmental management system —
communications, clear delineation of
employee responsibilities, training and
quality control.

This policy is designed to ensure that
the participation of every student and
member of faculty and staff at the
University of British Columbia is not
limited by discrimination or harassment
on the basis of age. "race", colour,
ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital
status, family status, physical disability,

Freedom of inquiry and expression are
essential freedoms in a university, and
conflicting ideas are a vital feature of
university life. Nothing in this policy is to
be interpreted as limiting or discouraging
intellectual examination.
At the same time, academic freedom

deny similar freedom to others or make
its exercise more difficult by creating a

participation in campus life. For UBC to
achieve its educational purposes, it is
vital that all individuals feel free to express
responsibly their views and opinions.
To develop and maintain a campus
work and study place free from
discrimination and harassment.
Every student and member of faculty
and staff has the right to study and work
at the University of British Columbia in
an environment free from harassment
and free from discrimination on the basis
of age (this is not meant to affect the
University's policy on mandatory
retirement), "race", colour, ancestry, place
of origin, religion, marital status, family
status, physical disability, mental
disability, sex, or sexual orientation,
unless there is a bona fide and reasonable
justification. Policies or programs, such
as Employment Equity, that have as their
object the amelioration of conditions of
disadvantaged individuals or groups are
not discriminatory within the meaning of
the policy.
UBC, through those holding line
management responsibility and through
its Office of Human Rights, will provide
educational opportunities that raise the
awareness of the university community
about human rights issues, promote the
dignity and respect for all members ofthe
university community and train
administrative heads of units in creating
a positive climate for work, study and
participation in university life.
UBC will not tolerate harassment or
discrimination on the bases set out in the
policy above. Through those holding line
management responsibility and through
its Office of Human Rights, UBC will
develop the capacity of administrative
heads of unit to respond appropriately to
such acts. In addition, the Office of
Human Rights will provide advice and a
confidential complaint resolution process
(as described in the detailed procedures
below) for students, faculty and staff
members who have complaints that they
have been harassed or discriminated
UBC prohibits reprisal or threats of
reprisal against any member of the
university community who in good faith
makes use of any aspect of this policy or
who participates in proceedings held
under its jurisdiction. UBC will not
tolerate complaints of harassment or
discrimination lodged in bad faith.
Supplementing research activities and
teaching that are already undertaken at
UBC about human rights in various
courses and programs at UBC, the Office
of Human Rights has responsibility for
providing information to the campus
about human rights issues at UBC. It
promotes university-wide programs
promoting a positive human rights
climate, working in conjunction with other
units on campus, and reports annually to
the campus community on educational
efforts, noting incidents which have
contributed both positively and negatively
to the UBC environment.
Whenever possible, complainants are
encouraged to address concerns directly
with the person(s) causing the concern.
Nothing in this policy or these procedures
is to be construed as preventing
individuals from resolving differences on
their own, without assistance from third
parties, or from raising the matter directly
with their administrative head of unit.
The human rights advisor is not a
substitute for management authority, and
the responsibility for maintaining a
discrimination- and harassment-free
environment rests with those charged
with responsibility for administration at

inconsistent with those in an existing
collective agreement (copies available
through the Department of Human
Resources), between the University and
its faculty or staff, that agreement will
(a) Human Rights Advisor — Informal
A person who believes that he or she
has been subjected to comment or conduct
falling within the definition of
discrimination or harassment may
discuss the matter on a confidential basis
with a human rights advisor.
The human rights advisor provides
advice and assistance to the complainant
on how to address the situation, on the
policy and procedures, and on what action
might be taken. There are many different
methods of conflict resolution which can
be considered. The human rights advisor
assists the complainant in weighing the
strategies, and may refer the person to
line administrators or specialists (e.g. an
advisor trained in sexual harassment
cases) where appropriate.
The decision on whether and how to
pursue the matter rests with the
complainant. The complainant has the
right to withdraw the complaint at any
(b) Filing a Formal, Written Complaint
Formal complaints are lodged with the
Office of Human Rights. Complaints are
specified in writing with reasonable detail
within one year ofthe most recent incident.
If there are exceptional circumstances,
complaints may be lodged later than the
normal one-year limit.
A human rights advisor (other than
the one advising the complainant) delivers
to the respondent a copy ofthe complaint
and a copy of the policy and procedures,
and provides advice and assistance on
how to address the situation. The
respondent is asked to let the Office of
Human Rights know within three calendar
days if he/she intends to respond, and
has ten calendar days from date of receipt
of the complaint in which to respond in
writing. The human rights advisor delivers
a copy ofthe response to the complainant.
During this stage, either the
respondent or complainant may request
conflict resolution services arranged by
the Office of Human Rights in an attempt
to resolve the dispute. Such activities
take place only with the consent of both
parties, and are without prejudice to any
further proceedings on the matter.
Written material, oral testimony and the
fact that either side failed to agree to
informal conflict resolution procedures,
or that informal resolution attempts failed,
may not be used as evidence in any
subsequent hearing.
Retaliation: Related events that take
place after the giving of written notice
may, without the filing of a further
complaint but with due notice to the
complainant or respondent, be the subject
of mediation or a formal hearing.
No files are retained on complaints
which have not been formally lodged. The
human rights advisor maintains
confidential files on cases formally lodged
with the Office of Human Rights. The files
are restricted to current human rights
office staff.
(c)  Formal Resolution
If the dispute has not been resolved by
the complainant and respondent within
fourteen calendar days ofthe lodging of a
formal written complaint, the Director of
Human Rights notifies the administrative
head(s) of unit(s) of both the complainant
and the respondent, as well as their
respective Vice Presidents (and Deans if
students or faculty or staff in academic
units). The Director of Human Rights
appoints a fact finder to interview the
complainant, the respondent, and any
witnesses, and to review any evidence
relevant to the case. The fact finder
submits a report of findings to the
complainant and respondent, their
administrative head(s) of unit(s), their
Vice Presidents (and Deans if students or
faculty or staff in academic units), and
the Director of Human Rights, normally
within one month.
The Administrative Head(s) of Unit(s)
reviews the report of the fact finder,
interviews the complainant and
respondent to discuss the report, consults
the Vice President(s) concerned (and if
academic departments, the Dean) and
staff from the Office Human Rights before
deciding if discipline is warranted, and if
so, the appropriate discipline in the
Notification of discipline/remedies
imposed by the Administrative Head(s) of
Unitfs) is sent in writing to the complainant
and the respondent with copies to the
Director of Human Rights and the deans
and vice presidents involved. Normal
disciplinary procedures as described in
the University Calendar (for students) or
in collective agreements or terms and
conditions of employment (for members
of faculty and staff) are followed.
A student who disagrees with the
penalty imposed on him/her has recourse
through the Senate Committee on Appeals
on Academic Discipline. A member of
staff or faculty who disagrees with the
penalty imposed on him/her has recourse
through the provisions of the collective
agreement or terms and conditions of
(d) Formal Complaint by Human Rights
The human rights advisor may initiate
a formal complaint if evidence of alleged
recurrent discrimination or harassment
exists. The participation of individual
complainants is voluntary.
The Office of Human Rights prepares
statistical information about the number
of complaints made and information about
the types of complaints, including the
number of cases in which students and
members of faculty and staff were
complainants and respondents, and the
outcomes of complaints. This information
is published annually.
An administrative head of unit is a
Director of a service unit, a Head of an
academic department, a Director of a
centre, institute or school, a Principal of
a college, a Dean, an Associate Vice
President, the University Librarian, the
Registrar, a Vice President or the
Complaint includes complaints
respecting: discrimination or harassment
on the basis of age (this is not meant to
affect the University's policy on mandatory
retirement), "race", colour, ancestry, place
of origin, religion, marital status, family
status, physical disability, mental
disability, sex, or sexual orientation:
retaliation for consulting with a human
rights advisor or for participating in
proceedings under this policy: breach of
an undertaking as to future conduct. A
complaint may be made by any student
or member of staff or faculty in respect of
a member of faculty and staff or a student
in the course of his/her university work/
studies/participation in campus life. The
presentation, examination, or discussion
of ideas, theories, facts, interpretations
and the like arising in an academic context
that may result in disagreement or
discomfort for some individuals is not
grounds for a complaint of discrimination
or harassment under this policy.
Discrimination is a distinction,
whether intentional or not, for which
there is not a bona fide and reasonable
justification, based on age (this is not
meant to affect the University's policy on
mandatory retirement), "race", colour,
ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital
status, family status, physical disability,
mental disability, sex, sexual orientation,
which has the effect of imposing burdens,
obligations or disadvantages on
individuals or groups not imposed on
others. Policies or programs, such as
Employment Equity, that have as their
object the amelioration of conditions of
disadvantaged individuals or groups are
not discriminatory within the meaning of
the policy.
Harassment is unwelcome behaviour,
based on age (this is not meant to affect
the University's policy on mandatory
retirement), "race", colour, ancestry, place
of origin, religion, marital status, family
status, physical disability, mental
disability, sex or sexual orientation, which
would be considered by a reasonable
person to create an environment
unconducive to work/studies/
participation in campus life at UBC.

Mental health program to
address provincial needs
by Connie Filletti
Staff writer
UBC's Dept. of Psychiatry and
B.C.'s Ministry of Health are
collaborating on a new program
aimed at providing innovative
leadership in the area of
mental health.
Called the Co-operative
Psychiatric Liaison
(CUPPL), key features ofthe
program include training,
continuing mental health
education, direct service
delivery, clinical research
programs, evaluation of
mental health services,
service planning and
"We must begin to focus on
long-term mental health needs,"
said Dr. John Livesley, head of
Psychiatry. "As a university, we
have an obligation to extend our
existing contributions to the
province. We must make our
expertise available and play an
increasing role in the education
of mental health workers."
"We appreciate the
opportunity to work with the
Mental Health Services Division
ofthe Ministry of Health on this
important initiative," he added.
The collaborative venture was
initiated to help implement the
provincial government's five-year
strategic mental health plan
introduced last year to improve
mental health services for the
people of B.C.
"This is a great example of
how the academic and public
service can combine their
expertise and efforts to work
effectively together to move ahead
with needed reforms in mental
health service and improve the
health care delivery system," said
Alan Campbell, executive
director of the Ministry of
Health's Mental Health Services
The training component ofthe
program is a direct response to
the problem of recruiting and
retaining psychiatric personnel
for rural and remote areas of the
province, explained Diana
Lambrou, CUPPL's director of
Administration and
In addition to the training
programs, communities which
previously had no access to
ongoing professional traini i lg wil 1
be  served   by  a  number  of
conferences and workshops
designed for the continuing
education of mental health care
professionals, she said.
Lambrou also noted that
under the service delivery feature
of  the   program,   about   40
communities throughout the
province receive regular monthly
visits by 75 psychiatrists
employed by CUPPL, including
specialists in psychiatric care to
the elderly, adults, children and
Current research programs
under way include a suicide
prevention program and an
indigenous peoples mental
health program.
"Future plans for research
include long-term, follow-up of
deinstitutionalized   patients.
evaluation of inpatient and
intensive community alternatives
for hard-to-place patients and
evaluation of local psychiatric
emergency services," Lambrou said.
She stressed that while
evaluation was an integral
component of each CUPPL
project, the program will
also conduct an
assessment of the
province's entire mental
health initiative.
Livesley underscored
the importance of CUPPL's
collaboration with the
province in planning the
future direction of mental
health services for B.C.
He welcomed the
opportunity to work with
the Ministry of Health to
improve the delivery of acute
mental health services and to
help formulate, in consultation
with health care agencies at the
provincial and local levels, the
formal arrangements required for
the successful implementation
ofthe province's strategic mental
health plan.
"This truly collaborative
venture will help the Dept. of
Psychiatry fulfill its mission to
be a provincial resource while
meeting the mental health care
needsofthe province," Livesley said.

theT-Birds were on the
short end of an 8-0

predictable outcome, according
to UBC coach Mike Coflin.
"Some of our players
responded surprisingly well to
the challenge. However, others
appeared to be awestruck by the
whole experience of competing
against players just one step
away from being National Hockey

difference between the two
teams, next to the skills, was the
level of conditioning that the
professionals came to camp with.
"At the university level, our
players are among the top in
terms of conditioning. But
against AHL competition, the
best we could do was play 30-
minutes full out, which was
reflected on the scoreboard."
The game was
