NEW BUSINESS
4.1
President's Report
In addition to his report included with the materials, Dr. Barnard informed the Board that this fall
the University saw its highest enrolment ever at just under 30,000 students. He added that the
4
University had recently hosted colleagues from Nairobi with whom there is a longstanding
research partnership and relationship. He explained that there had recently been a change of
leadership there and it was a very positive and successful meeting about one of the University’s
outstanding areas of research. Dr. Barnard stated that the new student orientation had been
very successful with an abundance of activity in the first week of classes.
Mr. Zegalski asked if there would be a press release regarding the enrolment figures. Dr.
Barnard responded that there has been some coverage in the media already. Ms. Forsen stated
the she found it exciting to see such high enrolment numbers and asked if the President knew
why enrolment was so high. Dr. Barnard responded that the high enrolment is a good thing but it
would be difficult to attribute it to anything in particular.
4.2
Sustainability Report
The Chair invited Mr. Hall to speak to his report. Mr. Hall stated that as a result of the recent
benchmarking exercise, the University was recognized with a silver rating from the Association
for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. He explained that this is an
indication of the work that has been done in this area by the University and by the Office of
Sustainability. He noted also that the benchmarking exercise also served to identify areas for
improvement and will guide the renewal of the University’s sustainability strategy.
In response to a question from Dr. Halden regarding CO 2 emissions, Mr. Hall stated that the
University must improve the accounting of emissions and noted that some emissions are not
within the University’s control. Mr. Hall stated that the two biggest sources of carbon emissions
at the University are the power plant as well as the large number people who commute to and
from the campus. He stated that he has been working to formalize the emissions inventory and
will continue with work on the power plant. He noted that intensity measures for emissions are
trending in the right direction at the University as there has been a 33% reduction in emissions
per square foot of the University.
Mr. Sherbo asked about the role of the Office of Sustainability in supporting fossil fuel
divestment projects. Mr. Hall replied that the Office of Sustainability is gathering information on
campaigns that are happening across the country and learning from investment experts about
the impacts of divestment and alternative tactics that might be used instead of or in combination
with divestment, he is working to share that information with the University of Manitoba
Students’ Union (UMSU) and the Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) and also with the
University’s Treasury Services and financial managers. He stated that his intention is to ensure
that those who make these decisions have the best possible information. Mr. Kochan added that
both UMSU and GSA have been in touch with his office about their views and he expects there
to be a discussion at some point.
Mr. Stone asked how the university community could be encouraged to become involved in
sustainability initiatives and whether there would be support or funding provided. Mr. Hall
responded that there will be a green office program launching this fall which will help to manage
5
the University’s ecological footprint. He added that he is happy to meet with any department to
discuss options and availability of resources to support them in sustainability initiatives.
The Chair thanked Mr. Hall for the presentation.

PRESIDENT'S REPORT: November 24, 2015
GENERAL
The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) at the University of Manitoba formally opened
at the beginning of November with a two day series of events that honoured the process of
reconciliation, recognized Survivors and honorary witnesses, engaged almost two thousand school
children in dialogue about Residential Schools, truth and reconciliation and officially launched access to
the archive of records, testimony and artifacts gathered by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
during its mandate.
The Board of Governors’ Executive Committee has approved a change in title for the position of VicePresident (Academic) and Provost to Provost and Vice-President (Academic), effective immediately. As
the search process for this position has gotten underway, the evolution of the role, both at the
University of Manitoba and at other like universities, has been considered and the change was
recommended as a result of this work.
It increasingly has been the case that universities in Canada are implementing a “provostial model”,
which though not uniform in definition, generally assigns an extensive leadership role within the
University to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic). Though this has been the case in practice at
the University of Manitoba, the current policy framework does not fully reflect the centrality of the role
of Provost and of Vice-President (Academic) to the University, including its responsibilities as senior
Vice-President of the University. Work to update the bylaws that define the roles of all of the VicePresidents is underway, and this process will ensure that the role of the Provost is fully articulated. The
title change has been implemented at this time to facilitate and bring clarity to the Provost search, while
signaling to potential candidates the expectations and competencies required for the role.
A call for nominations has been issued to select a Knight Distinguished Visiting Lecturer for 2016. The
R.G. and E.M. Knight Fund was established to “enhance the quality of life of higher education at the
University of Manitoba by enriching its academic life through the support of a Distinguished Visitors
Program”. Faculty and staff are encouraged to consider submitting nominations and are reminded that
the Fund will support all eligible costs associated with the visit. Further information and forms may be
found at http://umanitoba.ca/admin/president/knight_program.html
On October 28, upon the conclusion of my term in this role, Dr. Elizabeth Cannon, President and ViceChancellor of the University of Calgary began a two -year term as chair of Universities Canada’s board of
directors.

Board of Governors Submission
AGENDA ITEM:
Parking Citation Rates
RECOMMENDED RESOLUTION:
That the Board of Governors approves the revised draft Parking Regulations for
implementation effective May 1, 2016.
Action Requested:
Approval
Discussion/Advice
Information
CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
The Parking Regulations have been revised as follows:
Citation Rate Increases

Violation of section 2.42, 2.43, 2.46, 2.47,
2.50, 2.52, 2.53, 2.54 (No permit

Discount rate in parentheses if paid within ten days.
Parking citation rates and categories at the University of Manitoba have remained static
since 2001 with the exception of the creation of new categories in 2013 for event days at
Investors Group Field. The City of Winnipeg issues citations in all areas of the city
including the neighborhoods that surround the University. The proposed rates are
consistent with current City of Winnipeg citation rates.
21
Parking citations are an integral component of parking enforcement and help Parking
Services ensure that staff, students and visitors to our campus comply with parking
regulations. In order to fulfill its commitment to paid parkers, Parking Services requires a
sufficient deterrent to prevent violations and to anchor the enforcement efforts.
In 2001, when the base violation was set at a rate of $20 (if paid in ten days), the hourly
casual parking rate on campus was $0.75. This means that the base citation rate was
equivalent to 26 hours of paid parking. In 2015, the hourly parking rate on campus has
doubled to $1.50, but the base violation rate hasn't changed. Today the base citation rate
is equivalent to only 13 hours of paid parking or less than two full days parking in casual
parking areas on campus. Parking Services has observed an increase in violations and it
is believed some violators are risking the odd citation instead of the certainty of paid
parking. This view is supported by the alarming number of repeat offenders. In the past
five years, 18,067 people have been issued two parking citations or more. More than 50%
of regular campus commuters have multiple parking citations listed on their customer file.
Parking Services receives calls throughout the year, especially during peak times and
during extreme weather, from frustrated staff and students with paid permits who can't
find parking in their assigned lot. Illegal parkers are occupying paid parking stalls on
campus causing permitted parkers to be without a place to park.
The instances of theft of service tripled in 2013-14 from the previous academic year and
increased another 50% in 2014-15. This trend may be indicating that those willing to take
the risk of parking in violation do not fear the repercussions. Parking Services assigned
theft of service fines to 32 individuals in 2013-14 and 48 in 2014-15.
Other recommended changes to update new Parking Services procedures and
improve definitions:
In consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel, Parking Services has recommended a
number of other changes to the Parking Regulations in order to improve the language of
the document. These include:
• (2.5) Adding new definitions that are lacking from the previous version of the
document. New definitions include Parkade, Parking Fee, Reserved Parking Area,
University Property and Violation Notice.
• (2.5) New definition "Public Pay Parking Area" added due to the addition of new
pay-by-plate parking meters. This new definition encompasses all casual parking
areas instead of old definition (pay and display) which only applied to one meter
type.
• (2.14) Added statement about elimination of duplicate parking permits.
• (2.22) Amended accessible parking procedure since Parking Services no longer
collects personal health information and instead requires customer applying for
accessible permits to present a Province of Manitoba S.M.D. placard.
• (2.23) Added exclusion of parking lots "N", "O" and "V" for accessible parking when
all accessible stalls are full.
• (2.25) Legal Services recommended rewording of "Rights of Cancellation" section,
but no significant changes made.
22
• (2.29) Under "Conditions of Parking" section, reference to the 'permit year' was
removed since most staff parking permits no longer expire annually.
• (2.34 and 2.38) Under "Visitor Parking" and "Event Day Parking", added reference
to new casual parking areas opened for Event Days to accommodate UM patrons.
• (2.39) Added electric vehicle charging as permissible under "Restriction on Use of
Power''.
• (2.41) Expanded liability statement, per the advice of Legal Services to include fire,
theft and collision.
• (2.47) New prohibition added to allow enforcement of vehicles idling on campus
after consultation with EHSO and Risk Management.
• (2.53) Added mobile payment as option to purchase parking
• (2.59) Under "Theft of Service" added line regarding displaying fraudulent parking
permits and parking tickets.
• (2.63) Under "Fees and Charges" added statement regarding the responsibility of
the owner of a motor vehicle for outstanding fees and charges associated with
their vehicle.
• (2.69) Under "Fees and Charges" added fees for returned/NSF payments and stop
payments. This has been a long standing procedure not previously covered in the
regulations.
• (2.75) Under "Failure to Pay'' added withholding the issuance of new permit as
repercussion for not paying outstanding fees. Another long standing procedure not
previously covered by regulations.
RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS:
N/A
CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSITY PLANNING FRAMEWORK:
Parking Services contributes to Priority IV, Building Community that creates an
outstanding learning and working environment by providing environmentally sustainable,
innovative and professionally managed parking and transportation solutions to our
community. With appropriate enforcement operations as part of an overall parking
strategy, Parking Services can provide good customer service to our parkers and
continue to support:
• Operation of the Fort Garry Campus shuttle bus.
• Parking lot improvements and maintenance.
• New parking facility development.
• Parking enforcement solutions to ensure compliance and effective lot
management.
• Parking software and hardware improvements to enhance the customer
experience.
23
IMPLICATIONS:
The recommendations will strengthen compliance of parking regulations allowing Parking
Services to better manage inventories while providing better customer service since
permit and casual parking stalls will be made more available for those who have paid for
parking.
ALTERNATIVES:
1- Increase citation rates without reference to City of Winnipeg rates. The City of
Winnipeg rates were selected because Parking Services believes they are high
enou~h to positively influence behavior, and will be defensitlle to parking violators.
2- Keep citation rates as they are, but remove the discount incentive to pay within ten
days. While this option may also increase compliance, it would likely result in
slower payment remittance, thus increasing our cost to collect on outstanding
citations. Also choosing this option would result in an increase of unpaid citations
and complaints from customers who are accustomed to early payment discounts.
CONSULTATION:
The following have been consulted in advance of the creation of this submission: the
Parking Advisory Committee (made up of representatives from the Faculty of Health
Sciences, Human Resources, UMSU, Student Life, Physical Plant, the Office of
Sustainability and Security Services), UMFA, the Office of Legal Counsel, the Winnipeg
Parking Authority, Parking and Transportation managers of other Canadian Universities,
and the U of M Comptroller.

Part I
Reason for Reguladon
The University of Manitoba recognizes that at any given time there is a large number of metef
YeftielesMotor Vehicles driving and parking on campus. In order for the University to maintain
orderly conduct of parking of ffieter ''ehielesMotor Vehicles, Parking Regulations must be
established. Furthermore, as an ancillary service, parking must be operated on a cost recovery
basis. These regulations set out the rules, fees and remedies available in association with parking
on University ~Pro p erty, and they apply to all staff, students, and the general public. The
University of Manitoba Act, which is an act of legislature, empowers the University of Manitoba
to govern parking on University ~fm~ and to make parking regulations. This includes
fees and charges for parking violations and actions taken for failure to pay fees and charges.

Admission Targets Policy and Procedure
RECOMMENDED RESOLUTION:
THAT the Board of Governors approve the Admission Targets policy and procedure, as
recommended by Senate, effective upon approval by the Board.
Action Requested:
Approval
Discussion/Advice
Information
CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The Strategic Enrolment Management Planning (SEMP) Committee has brought forward a
policy and procedure on Admission Targets as part of an ongoing and broad review of policies
and procedures at the University. The policy and procedure would replace the current
Enrolment Limitations policy.
The purpose of the policy is to outline a process for establishing, reviewing, and changing
Admission Targets for University 1 and any Degree Program at the University to help ensure
high quality programs and exceptional student experience.
The policy and procedure would apply to both undergraduate and graduate admission targets.
The procedure institutes both a process for establishing or requesting changes to admission
targets and criteria for proposing a particular target that are absent in the current Enrolment
Limitations policy.
The policy and procedure would also pertain to requests to temporarily suspend admissions to
a program.
The policy specifies that the President has the authority to approve changes to, or the
introduction of Admission Targets following consultation with the relevant dean or director,
Senate, and the Board of Governors. This is consistent with the Enrolment Limitations policy.
The procedures identify a role for the SEMP Committee as an advisory body to the President
on matters related to enrolment.
RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS:
N/A
CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSITY PLANNING FRAMEWORK:
Having a clear policy and procedure in this area supports many of the goals identified under the
“Inspiring Minds through Innovative and Quality Teaching” priority in Taking Our Place.
46
IMPLICATIONS:
Clarifying the process for establishing or amending admission targets and specifying the types of
criteria to be addressed when academic units propose new targets will inform decisions as part of
the Strategic Enrolment Management Planning process.
ALTERNATIVES:

CONSULTATION:
The proposal was considered and endorsed by Senate on November 4, 2015.

Report of the Senate Planning and Priorities Committee RE: Admission Targets Policy
and Procedure
Preamble:
1.
The terms of reference of the Senate Planning and Priorities Committee (SPPC) are
found on the website at
http://umanitoba.ca/admin/governance/governing_documents/governance/sen_committe
es/510.html.
2.
The committee met on May 25 and August 24, 2015 to consider a policy and procedure
on Admission Targets brought forward to the committee by the Strategic Enrolment
Management Planning Committee. The Admission Targets policy and procedure would
replace the existing policy on Enrolment Limitations.
Observations:
1.
The Committee endorsed a policy and procedure on Admission Targets brought forward
to the committee by the Strategic Enrolment Management Planning Committee as part
of an ongoing and broad review of policies and procedures at the University. The policy
and procedure on Admission Targets would replace the existing policy on Enrolment
Limitations
(http://umanitoba.ca/admin/governance/governing_documents/academic/354.html).
2.
The purpose of the policy is, “…to outline a process for establishing, reviewing, and
changing Admission Targets for University 1 and any Degree Program at the University
in order to provide high quality programs and exceptional student experience.”
3.
The policy and procedure would apply to both undergraduate and graduate admission
targets.
4.
The related procedure details both a process for establishing or requesting changes to
admission targets (sections 2.2 through 2.4) and criteria for proposing a particular target
(section 2.5). These things are absent in the existing Enrolment Limitations policy. It was
noted that it would not be necessary for an academic unit to address all of the criteria
listed when proposing to establish or make changes to an admission target, provided
that the proposal includes a rationale for the proposed target that is accompanied by
supporting analysis.
5.
Section 2.6 of the policy makes explicit that the policy and procedure pertain not only to
continuing admission targets but also to changes involving the temporary suspension of
admissions to a program. In recent years, the policy on Enrolment Limitations has been
used to inform the process to be followed when an academic unit is seeking to
temporarily suspend admissions to a program, although this policy does not speak
directly to this issue.
6.
The policy specifies that the President has the authority to approve changes to, or the
introduction of, Admission Targets following consultation with the relevant dean or
director, Senate, and the Board of Governors. This is consistent with the existing
Enrolment Limitations policy.
49
7.
Section 2.6 of the procedures identifies a role for the Strategic Enrolment Management
Planning Committee as an advisory body to the President on matters related to
enrolment.
Recommendation:
The Senate Planning and Priorities Committee recommends:
THAT Senate approve and recommend that the Board of Governors approve the
Admission Targets policy and procedure, effective upon approval by the Board of
Governors.

Date:

The attached Admission Targets Policy and Procedures have been drafted to replace the Enrolment

such changes remains with the President following consultation and discussion with both Senate and the
Board of Governors.
We would appreciate if the Admissions Targets Policy and Procedures could be considered by SPPC
before being forwarded to Senate and the Board of Governors.
Thank you.

AGENDA ITEM:
Academic Schedule for 2016-2017 including a Fall Term Break
RECOMMENDED RESOLUTION:
For information only.
Action Requested:
Approval
Discussion/Advice
Information
CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
The 2016-2017 Academic Schedule, which includes a Fall Term Break, was prepared by the
Registrar and reviewed by all faculties, colleges, and schools. Both the Academic Schedule and
a proposal for a Fall Term Break were approved by Senate at its meeting on November 4, 2015.
The Fall Term Break will comprise the three days of the Thanksgiving Weekend and the Thursday
and Friday immediate preceding it (October 6 and 7, 2016). It will be applicable to all programs
that follow the standard academic schedule. Academic units that follow a program-specific
academic schedule may opt out of the Fall Term Break or offer a break in an alternate manner.
RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS:
N/A
CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSITY PLANNING FRAMEWORK:
N/A
IMPLICATIONS:
One objective of the Fall Term Break is to respond to the issue of student mental health by
providing a break from classes and examinations during the Fall Term.
The Fall Term Break will be reviewed annually for a period of three years, to determine its effect
on instruction, including possible disruptions to laboratory sections in classes offered by the
Faculty of Science, and student outcomes. The review would involve consultation with academic
units and might explore alternate models of the academic schedule with respect to teaching
hours, start and end dates for terms, and timing and length of the Fall Term Break and final
examination period.
ALTERNATIVES:
N/A
CONSULTATION:
The 2016-2017 Academic Schedule, including a Fall Term Break, was reviewed by all faculties,
colleges, and schools. The proposal for a Fall Term Break was supported by the University of
Manitoba Students’ Union (UMSU).

Board of Governors Submission
AGENDA ITEM:
Report of the Senate Committee on Awards – Part B
[dated September 22, 2015]
RECOMMENDED RESOLUTION:
THAT the Board of Governors approve one new offer and one amended offer, as set out in
Appendix A of the Report of the Senate Committee on Awards – Part B [dated September
22, 2015].
Action Requested:
Approval
Discussion/Advice
Information
CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
At its meeting on September 22, 2015, the Senate Committee on Awards approved one new offer
and one amended offer that appear to be discriminatory according to the policy on the NonAcceptance of Discriminatory Awards, as set out in Appendix A of the Report of the Senate
Committee on Awards – Part B [dated September 22, 2015].
The Derek Riley Undergraduate Entrance Bursary is a renewable entrance bursary that would be
offered to Indigenous undergraduate students in any faculty, college, or school at the University.
The terms of reference for the University of Manitoba Undergraduate Research Awards, which
provide for up to one hundred research awards for undergraduate students in any faculty,
college, or school at the University, have been modified to specify that up to ten of the awards
would be dedicated to Indigenous students.
RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS:
The awards would be funded from the sources identified in the Report.
IMPLICATIONS:
The Derek Riley Undergraduate Entrance Bursary would aid in the recruitment and retention of
Indigenous undergraduate students to various programs at the University.
The revised University of Manitoba Undergraduate Research Awards would encourage
Indigenous students to pursue a summer research opportunity at the University in order to have
an opportunity to participate in, and experience research.
CONSULTATION:
These award offers were approved by Senate at its meeting on November 4, 2015.

RE: Derek Riley Undergraduate Entrance Bursary
On behalf of the Indigenous Student Centre at the University of Manitoba, I submit this letter in support of establishing
the Derek Riley Undergraduate Entrance Bursary.
Current data shows that so many First Nation students struggle to adjust to the rigours of new financial systems, new
academic expectations, and new cultural environments that students encounter before they even begin their first year of
studies.
An entrance bursary would provide the financial stability and security that give students the ability to enter a
post-secondary program with peace of mind, confidence, and the excitement of knowing that they can focu s on their
educational goals instead of worrying about where the money will come from to make ends meet. Entrance bursaries are
a critical component in responding to the educational needs of First Nation students.
The University of Manitoba has over 2, I 00 Aboriginal students enrolled in full and part-time studies. Our goal is to
increase the number of Aboriginal students who attend, succeed, and graduate from our institution. In order to do this, we
must provide opportunities that respect the holistic preparedness of the students. Supporting students in a meaningful
financial way is one of the most important things we can do as an institution and as a community to ensure that students
with so much potential will be given a fair opportunity to enroll, persist, and graduate as a means of fulfilling their
dreams.

AGENDA ITEM:
Board of Governors Submission
Motion to change the position title for the Vice-President
(Academic) and Provost
RECOMMENDED RESOLUTION:
That the Board of Governors approve the change of title for the Vice-President (Academic) and Provost to
Provost and Vice-President (Academic) and that the change of title be reflected in all appropriate
governing documents. This change will take effect immediately.
Action Requested:
~Approval
D Discussion/Advice D Information
CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
As preparations for the search for the next Vice-President (Academic) and Provost have gotten underway,
the evolution of the role, both at the University of Manitoba and at other like universities, has been
considered. As a result of this work, it is proposed that the title of the position be switched to Provost and
Vice-President (Academic).
It increasingly has been the case that universities in Canada are implementing a " provostial model", which
though not uniform in definition, generally assigns a more extensive leadership role within the University
to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) than is currently articulated at the University of Manitoba.
Among the implications of this model is an increased ability by university presidents to focus on their
respective institutions' external obligations and priorities. Notably, of the thirteen English-language UlS
universities, nine have a Provost and Vice-President (Academic) . The Universities of Manitoba, Waterloo
and Ottawa are the only ones presently with a Vice-President (Academic) and Provost.
The title change will more accurately reflect the centrality of the role to the University, better identify the
position as the senior Vice-President of the University and assist in the search/recruitment process.
As upcoming changes to the position descriptions for the Vice-Presidents will outline, "the Provost shall be
the senior Vice-President, responsible for acting on behalf of the President in his or her absence or
inability to act, or as delegated. The Provost shall collaborate with the President to establish policy and
direction on academic and administrative matters affecting the university as a whole, and hold
responsibility for institutional strategic, operational and resource planning".
Having approval of the title change now will facilitate the Provost search and bring clarity to the
community, to the Advisory Committee and to potential candidates about the expectations and
competencies required for the role . The new title will begin to be used in all communications related to
the search, including the position profile, advertising efforts and consultation with the community about
the role.

Date:

Memo To:
Senate
From:
Neil Marnoch, Registrar
Re:
Revisions to the 2015- 2016 Academic Schedule
Please consider the following change proposed by the College of Medicine to the 2015-2016
Academic Schedule:
The Undergraduate Medical Education program has undergone a curriculum renewal over
the last few years. Implementation of this curriculum requires that students in Years 1 and 2
commence Winter Term on January 4, 2016, rather than January 5 as was previously
approved. The College requests that Senate amend the 2015-2016 Academic Schedule to
reflect that Year 1 and Year 2 Undergraduate Medicine students will resume classes on
January 4, 2016. End dates of the term are not affected.
Note: January 4 is scheduled to be a day of closure of the university. Arrangements are being
made to have sufficient staff on duty and for buildings to be open on January 4.
