Report from the President
The President reported that it had recently been a season of celebrations, including
Convocation, the Long Service Awards presentations, various Student Recognition receptions,
recognizing many joyous occasions. However, for those in leadership positions the celebrations
take up significant blocks of time, which means that many are working hard to stay on top of
things and working toward implementing the items resulting from the approval of the budget.
Ms. Lederman asked Dr. Barnard for information about the recent Winnipeg Free Press Editorial
Board Visit that was mentioned in his written report. Dr. Barnard responded that the visit had
resulted from a request by the University for a meeting with the Editorial Board. The group first
toured the new residence, Tache, and the ArtLab construction which are all very attractive
spaces. The tour was followed by a meeting in the President’s office which went very well. In
closing, Dr. Barnard indicated his sense that there would be some positive engagement from
the newspaper in the future.

Mrs. McCallum stated as part of updating current policies it became necessary to rescind those
which are very out of date. Ms. Labine asked whether the policy on leasing of space by union
groups would have any effect on space used by UMSU and GSA. Mrs. McCallum replied that it
only applied to union groups and that a new policy was already in place to replace it.
It was moved by Dr. Halden and seconded by Chancellor Secter:
THAT the Board of Governors rescind the following Board approved Policies:
Leasing of Space by Union Groups (dated September 19,1977);
Provision of Typing Services on a Contract Basis (dated September 7, 1976);

CARRIED
9. FROM AUDIT & RISK MANAGEMENT
9.1 Annual Financial Report
a) Office of the Auditor General – Audit Results Memorandum (for information)
Ms. Bovey indicated that this item was for information only and invited questions. Mr. Robertson
asked for clarification on the uncorrected misstatements referred to in the report. Ms. Bovey
replied that these misstatements had been deemed by the OAG to be immaterial to the audit.
Mr. Hay added that it was common for there to be a difference of opinion between management
and auditors on how particular items should be recorded. He then re stated that the amounts
were not material to the audit, and added that the items were simply adjustments to the balance
sheet and that the Audit and Risk Management Committee was in agreement with Management
to leave these two items uncorrected. Mr. Robertson then asked for clarification on materiality,
to which Mr. Hay responded that for our audit the materiality is set by the auditors to be in the
$6.5 million to $7 million range.
Dr. McKenzie asked about the recommendation to bring the University into compliance with the
province’s Whistleblower legislation and where this stands in relation to the University’s
priorities. Mrs. McCallum responded that there is a draft of this policy currently being reviewed
by the legal office and that the plan is to bring that policy to the Board of Governors for approval
in the fall of this year.
It was moved by Ms. Bovey and seconded by Mr. Zegalski:
That the Board of Governors receive for information the Audit Results Memorandum
from the Office of the Auditor General (OAG).
CARRIED
b) Annual Financial Report 2011
Ms. Bovey indicated that the Consolidated Financial Statements were as expected given the
context and background previously provided to the Board. She invited Mr. Pasieka to speak to
the documents.
Mr. Pasieka stated that the statements reflect what has happened in the past year and showed
any significant changes during the year. He added that the relationship with the Province and
7
BBB Stadium Inc. was reflected in certain transactions to record the construction and the
funding of the football stadium. Mr. Pasieka then highlighted significant items in the report, in
particular the balance sheet on page 182 which reflects a decline in current assets from $205
million to $188 million the previous year, mostly in cash and marketable investments. This is
due in part to the cost of large construction projects, the fact that marketable investments were
moved to a long term position to maximize returns and are therefore reflected in the long term
investments. The reason that accounts receivables are up from the previous year is an
outstanding insurance payment relating to the Duff Roblin fire. Total long term assets are up by
$200 million, reflecting the loan receivable from BBB Stadium Inc. which is offset by a loan from
the province. Investments are up by $55 million dollars due to trust and endowment donations
and investment performance. Capital Assets in construction and equipment around the
University are up by $139 million offset by current year amortization of $47 million dollars.
Liabilities are up by approximately $10 million, mostly accounts payable relating to trade
suppliers and construction projects. Long term liabilities have increased to $303 million
compared to $281 million in the previous year, the most significant amount being the $211
million in long term debt to the Province in relation to the stadium construction and the pension
obligation which is lower this year by $2 million due to good investment returns and additional
contributions by the University.
Mr. Pasieka then referred to the Statement of Operations on page 183, stating that the
University uses the Restricted Fund method of accounting. Funds for different purposes are
recorded in separate columns. Overall, the result is $122.9 million in revenues over expenses,
comprised mainly of $80 million in the capital fund which is related to the timing and
amortization of construction projects, as well as $32 million in the endowment fund and another
$7 million in the trust fund which reflect donations where only a portion of the net investment
returns can be spent not the original principal.
Dr. Halden asked whether the loan to BBB Stadium Inc. generated interest to which Mr. Pasieka
replied that it is interest bearing but the interest earned by the University is offset by the amount
of interest the University pays to the Province.
It was moved by Ms. Bovey and seconded by Mr. Nawrot:
THAT the Board of Governors approve the Consolidated Financial Statements of The
University of Manitoba for the year ended March 31, 2011.
CARRIED
c) Public Sector Compensation Disclosure Report 2010
Ms. Bovey stated that the University is compelled by law to disclose the salaries of any staff
member earning more than $50,000 per year.
It was moved by Ms. Bovey and seconded by Dr. Embree:
THAT the Board of Governors approve the Public Sector Compensation Disclosure
Report of The University of Manitoba for the year ended December 31, 2010.
CARRIED
Ms. Lederman informed the Board that the University has received notice from the Office of the
Auditor General will be auditing the financial arrangements relating to the stadium construction.

Update from the UMSU President & GSA President (oral)
Ms. Tapp, President of UMSU, reported that members were currently being selected for UMSU
Committees and that the UMSU Council and Senior Sticks had recently been on a retreat. She
added that the recent Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) national meeting had been very
productive in setting the direction for the upcoming year. Finally, Ms. Tapp commented that
managers for the new Pub will soon be hired and details are being worked out for an opening
this Fall.
Mr. Nawrot, GSA President, stated that with the completion of the Autonomy Agreement
approved earlier he was able to focus on the financial side of the GSA. He reported that
earnings on investments were sufficient to increase the amount of their travel awards. Mr.
Nawrot added that renovations to the GSA lounge and office areas were underway and that
planning for the orientation was going well. One initiative in particular is working with the
Learning Assistance Centre to offer more sessions of the thesis writing workshop in order to
address the long waiting list for the workshop. Additionally, the GSA would be offering monthly
workshop on concrete topics such as job hunting and interviewing skills.
MOTION TO MOVE TO CLOSED AND CONFIDENTIAL SESSION

PRESIDENT'S REPORT: September 27, 2011 GENERAL A major activity for the university over the summer months always is the consideration of its budgetary needs for the upcoming year and into the future, and the preparation of its budgetary estimates. As part of this process, the University of Manitoba prepared a pre‐budget submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance that includes three recommendations: 1. Provide funding for a Canadian Cereal Research Lab, 2. Strengthen investment in Canada’s research granting agencies, and 3. Create a new funding program to support international research collaborations. The Standing Committee will review all recommendations in preparation of the Federal budget in 2012. With respect to the 2011/12 Estimates process, the University of Manitoba has developed preliminary budgets and supplementary information for COPSE, in response to its request for in anticipation of the provincial government’s call for the 2012/13 Estimates. The preliminary budgets and supplementary information requested form the basis of information used in the government’s deliberations leading to decisions on post‐secondary funding levels in the 2012/13 year. Based on the commitments in the 2011/12 provincial budget, that provided for an operating grant increase of five per cent in the 2011/12 fiscal year and in the subsequent two years as well as a commitment to tie future tuition increases to the rate of inflation. As requested by COPSE, the University has incorporated a 5% grant increase and a 1.5% tuition increase into our 2012/13 operating budget projections. These levels would allow the University of Manitoba to maintain the status quo but not place it in a position to address structural deficits nor to make meaningful investments in strategic priorities. Though welcome, this level of increase is insufficient to fulfill the university’s mandate, respond to the competitive forces it is facing, or address the effects of the gradual erosion of core funding that the university has absorbed over the last two decades. Consequently, a request for an incremental base grant allocation to support strategic planning framework priorities and critical transformation of our organizational infrastructure is included in the response to COPSE, as is the University’s urgent requirement for $19.2 M in support of critical capital projects requiring immediate attention or remedial work, and an identification of the need for significantly increased support for research and graduate students. As part of the Homecoming celebrations, the Visionary Conversations series was launched on September 14 with a panel of esteemed University of Manitoba speakers – David Barber, Diana Brydon, Karen Busby, Brenda Elias, Michael Freund and Richard Holley – taking on the topic of “Apocalypse or Utopia?”, leading a discussion about issues shaping our world and how the decisions we make today will shape our future. The next session, on October 18, will focus on “Livable Cities: 21st Century Perspectives” and will feature Michelle Richard, Director of Campus Planning, Ralph Stern, Dean of Architecture and Richard Milgrowm, Head and Associate Professor, Department of City Planning. The return of students this fall has generated near record‐breaking enrolment levels. Fall term first‐day enrolment numbers indicate that the University of Manitoba is just 21 students short of setting a new enrolment record for the institution. Enrolment for the 2011‐12 academic year is 27,992, an increase of 1.5% from fall term 2010. This increase is entirely attributable to increased enrolment among full‐time students; part‐time enrolment is unchanged. Undergraduate enrolment increased by 1.2% while graduate enrolment increased 4.2%. 10

the obstacle run. On the final day of the event, they had a blistering run in the marathon that covered 84m in 8 minutes and 21 seconds, which was well under the former world record of 10 minutes. The University of Plymouth won the event with a 6 minute 44 second run. Craig Milligan and Nicole Lovat, graduate students, are among the recipients of this year’s prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS). They were chosen based on their exceptional leadership skills and high scholarly achievement, both students boasting a GPA of well over 4.0 in their undergraduate and graduate studies. Among numerous distinctions and awards, Milligan (civil engineering) has also won a gold medal in civil engineering and Lovat (pharmacology and therapeutics) has a patent on file. Each recipient will receive $50,000 per year for three years to fund their research. The student team including agricultural and food sciences, biosystems engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer engineering took top honors at the 14th Annual International 1/4‐Scale Tractor Student Design Competition hosted by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers this June. The team received first place for best appearance, best craftsmanship and most improved, and placed second overall in the pulls and in design. They placed fifth overall in the competition, a huge step up from last year's spot in 17th place. The 2nd Annual High School Agroecology Discovery Day took place in June at the Ian N. Morrison Research Farm and involved 110 Grade 10 students from Carman, Elm Creek and Miami. The University joins most large financial firms and reputable business schools by installing twelve Bloomberg Terminals at the Asper School of Business. The terminals allow access to the Bloomberg Professional service through which users can monitor and analyze real‐time financial market data movements and conduct trading in real time. Along with data, the Bloomberg Professional® provides access to news, analytics, communications, charts, liquidity, functionalities and execution services. As the industry standard, the Bloomberg Professional service is the product of choice for real‐time and historical financial news for central banks, investment institutions, commercial banks, agencies, and law firms in over 160 countries. Asper School graduates will benefit significantly from the incorporation of activities related to Bloomberg Terminals in finance courses, and by completing the Bloomberg Certification Program. Business Review Canada ranked the Asper School of Business MBA Program number 5 among the top 10 Canadian programs, ranked as follows: 1) Queens, 2) Western Ontario, 3) University of Toronto, 4) HEC Montreal, 5) University of Manitoba, 6) York University, 7) McGill University, 8) Wilfrid Laurier University, 9) University of Ottawa and 10) University of New Brunswick – St. John.

The Delta Marsh Field Station has sustained considerable damage as a result of unusually high water levels and a strong storm that occurred on June 2nd of this year. Prior to the storm the water levels were high and substantial damage was anticipated. Since the storm the Field Station buildings have suffered various degrees of damage from the water, wind and falling trees. The University is awaiting a report from our insurer as to recoverability of buildings on the site. It is also anticipated that the insurer may comment on the future insurability of the location due to the changing dynamics of the Lake Manitoba shoreline to the north and the fluctuating and increasing levels of Delta Marsh to the south of the station. Negotiations with the Province of Manitoba as to flood related financial assistance continue. 

Students have been using one field since the beginning of the month. The Wallace Building Addition (Phase I/II) is nearing completion and the repairs to the damage caused by two flood occurrences is also almost complete. Upgrade work at 177 Lombard is underway but because the Historical Buildings Review Committee is involved, there are minor delays in the construction schedule which has been pushed into 2012. The plaque for the new bust of Baldur Stefansson is currently being cast. Once cast, the bust will be installed in Innovation Plaza, which was completed in June of this year. We are still anticipating a formal unveiling event in late September/early October in coordination with the main donor, the Richardson Foundation. The purpose of Innovation Plaza is to highlight and celebrate the University’s great innovators. The third floor of the Smartpark Event Centre at the corner of Chancellor Matheson and Research Road is the new home of the Campus Planning Office (CPO). Signage and event programming activities will be developed presently. The window projector was installed September 6th and imaging will be sent via the Marketing and Communications Office until specific messaging can be developed for the CPO and Smartpark events. The images will be delivered through rear projection imaging technology – a first for this scale of display in Winnipeg. The Event Centre is available to the university community for room bookings. Rooms can be booked through the Office of the Vice‐President Administration at 474‐8265. Advanced AV equipment for each floor space is available. The first floor is set up for lecture style presentations; the second floor is designed for workshop format use. The Campus Planning Office is located on the third floor. 

Rescinding Outdated Policies
RECOMMENDED RESOLUTION:
That the Board of Governors rescind the following Board approved Policies:
External Advertising (dated November 1988); and
Female:Male Balance Among Academic Administrators, Faculty and Students (dated
October 22, 1980);

..... j;.,.
CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
The External Advertising Policy was approved at a time when the University Relations Office was
responsible for placing all University advertisements in external publications. Since that time the
responsibility for employment advertising has been transferred to Human Resources. As well
there have been many changes in the requirements for advertisements to be consistent with
Immigration regulations. This information is also now contained in the Policy on Hiring NonCanadians.
The Policy titled Female:Male Balance Among Academic Administrators, Faculty and Students
(dated October 22, 1980) is out of date and not aligned with the University's Policy on
Employment Equity. The objectives of the current Policy are still valid but the Employment Equity
Policy and related programs cover these matters. The singular approach to equity matters has
been replaced with a broader approach related to Aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and
visible minorities (as well as women).
The rescinding of this Policy should not be misconstrued. The University still strives for gender
based equity in the workforce.
RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS:
I No additional funding or resources are required.
CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSITY PLANNING FRAMEWORK:
The elimination of outdated policies and procedures will provide greater clarity for new employees
in their orientation to the University community.

Guidelines and Procedures
All external advertisements for the University of Manitoba are placed through the University Relations and Information
Office (URI). This service ensures that:
1.
advertisements are placed directly and without delay; "
2.
departments are aware of costs and less expensive alternatives; as well as publication deadlines;
3.
the format of the advertisement is consistent with the requirements of eac}1 publication; and
4.
in the case of display advertisements, standard artwork is supplied,
The benefits to departments of such a service include:
1.
a reduction in both time and paperwork required by departments in processing advertisements and invoices; and
2.
volume discounts given to the university (e.g. by the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Sun) because advertising
is placed by one office.
General Information
The URI office has standing purchase orders through the Purchasing Department to place advertisements in any publication.
Departments placing advertisements must supply the URI office with the following information:
1.
a text of the advertisement;
2.
a list of publications and addresses where placement is desired;
3.
name of department, contact person and telephone number; and
4.
a budget number.

Types of Advertisements
Two types of advertisements are available: classified and display. Classified advertising is compactly arranged, as in
newspaper columns, according to subject, under such listings as "help wanted" or "lost and found". Display advertising is
generally bordered, and typically includes a heading, text and logo. As such, display advertisements are substantially more
expensive.
When setting up a display advertisement, it is appropriate to focus on a phrase or title to emphasize the text of the
advertisement. Artwork may be incorporated into the advertisement to improve the visual quality ofthe advertisement.
Departments can supply this artwork, or can use the services of Communication Systems. However, the use of artwork adds
to the cost of the advertisement, as well as limiting the space available for the text. The URI office can provide consultative
advice in setting up an advertisement.
There are several options available in submitting a display advertisement to a publication. In the case of insertion in a local
publication (e.g. the Winnipeg Free Press), the text ofthe advertisement is typeset by the publication and a proof is supplied
to allow a check for accuracy and correct format. This requires a lead time of five days. In other instances (other Canadian
and foreign publications), the advertisement can be supplied camera-ready to the publication (URI arranges this through
Communication Systems), or the advertisement is typeset by the publication. The former allows for greater control over
accuracy and correct format, but requires greater lead time.
Advertising for Academic Staff
All advertisements should be as specific as possible in identifying rank, type of appointment, and minimum qualifications
required. In view of the Employment Equity and Clean Air Policies, the following wording should be included on all internal
and external advertising for position vacancies:
"The University of Manitoba encourages applications from qualified women and men, including members of visible
minorities, Aboriginal people, and persons with disabilities. The University offers a smoke-free environment, save for
specially designated areas."
Additionally, in accordance with the Policy on Hiring Non-Canadians and Canada Employment and Immigration regulations,
ALL advertisements, except for a small number of exempted disciplines, must be placed at TIER I and require the following
statement.
TIER I: "This advertisement is directed to Canadian citizens and permanent residents."
No foreign candidates may be interviewed at this stage. ONLY when no Canadian candidate meets the minimum
qualifications required for the position, may permission be requested from Canada Employment to consider non-Canadian
applicants who may have applied at Tier I or to re-advertise using Tier II wording. Under normal circumstances Tier II may
ONLY be used for exempted disciplines (memo circulated 21 February 1992 to Deans and Directors).
TIER II: "Priority consideration will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents."
TENURE-TRACK/CONTINUING: Before any advertisement is placed for tenured, tenure-track or probationary positions
for Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor, or probationary or continuing Instructor or Librarian appointments,
written approval must be obtained for such a position from the Vice-President (Academic) and Provost. All advertisements
for these positions must be reviewed in the Office ofthe Vice-President (Academic) and Provost before being forwarded for
publication.
RESEARCH ASSOCIATE advertisements must be advertised at the TIER I level.
POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW advertisements require the following statement: "The University exercises a Canadian-first
policy, however, non-Canadians are encouraged to apply."
Advice on all of these procedures should be obtained from the EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT to the VICE-PRESIDENT
(ACADEMIC) AND PROVOST at 474-8399, before advertising.

[he proportion offemale tenured faculty members and academic administrators in many faaculties/schools/depmiments and in academic administrative
Jositions is small. In a few areas such as Nursing and Dental Hygiene, the same situation applies to males. In most units the proportion offemale:male students
:xceeds the ratio among faculty. Special efforts should be undeliaken to achieve a more even female:male balance among academic administrators and, within
mits, among faculty and students. These special efforts, however, should not run counter to the primary objective of developing the best possible educational
Jrogram for students .
.n order to encourage greater numbers of students among the under-represented sex, the following is recommended:
1.
For disciplines in which there are few if any students of one sex, produce special brochures or literature encouraging the under-represented sex to
consider studying in these areas at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
2.
In order to help develop role models, encourage the Visiting Lecture Committee to give preference to bringing distinguished scholars ofthe underrepresented sex to the campus in those disciplines in which there are imbalances in faculty female:male ratios.
:n the Annual Repmi, the President will review the progress made in achieving a more even sex balance among academic administrators, and among faculty,
~raduate students and undergraduate students in faculties/schools/departments.

Dear Dr. Keselman:
RE: Application for the Establishment of an Endowed Research Chair in Cardiology
Dr. Dan Roberts Professor and Head, Department of Internal Medicine has submitted an application for
the establishment of an Endowed Research Chair in Cardiology. As outlined in the documents, this is a
joint Chair with the St. Boniface Hospital and Research Foundation.
The Department of Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and the St. Boniface Hospital and Research
Foundation have major commitments to promote excellence in cardiovascular research. To that end, they
have agreed to commit to fund $3,000,000 to create an endowment to support the establishment of this
Chair.
The Faculty of Medicine supports this endeavour. The establishment of an Endowed Research Chair in
Cardiology will raise the research profile of the Department and the Faculty. The recipient of this
Endowed Chair will provide leadership to the Department's research enterprise and play an important role
for junior faculty members.

CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
The University of Manitoba Act sets out in section #16(i)(16) that there shall be a Director of Libraries.
Although the past practice was to name the individual charged with responsibilities and oversight of the
University of Manitoba Libraries as the Director, most universities now refer to the individual in that role
as AUniversity Librarian.@ I am requesting that the By-Law and associated documents (the policy and
procedures on the appointment and review of the Director of Libraries) be modified.

AGENDA ITEM:
Motion to Change the Title of the Vice-President (Research)

That the Board of Governors approve the change of title for the Vice-President (Research) to VicePresident (Research and I nternational) and that the change of title be reflected in all appropriate
governing documents.

D Discussion/Advice
D Information
CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND:
As noted in a July 11, 2011 memo to Deans, Directors and Heads of Administrative from Dr.
Joanne Keselman, Vice-President (Academic) and Provost and Dr. Digvir Jayas, Vice-President
(Research), the Office of International Relations has become a reporting unit of the Office of the
Vice-President (Research). (see attached memo)
This move has occurred in order to better reflect the organizational structure of U 15 member
universitie?, in which responsibility for international affairs largely rests with the vice-president
(research). In making its own structure similar to that of its peers, the University of Manitoba will
be able to take advantage of efforts occurring nationally - in particular at the U 15 - regarding
internationalization.
The change in structure is consistent with the existing by-laws for the Vice-President (Academic)
and Provost and the Vice-President (Research). In the case of the latter, the by-law indicates that
the duties of the Vice-President (Research) shall include "developing and monitoring international
development programs and, in conjunction with the Vice-President (Academic) and Provost, share
responsibility for the International Liaison Office". (attached)
The proposed change in title would better identify the new locus of leadership responsibility for
international affairs at the University of Manitoba, increasing transparency and ease of
communication.

CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSITY PLANNING FRAMEWORK:
The planning framework articulates our goal of being nationally and internationally recognized for
teaching, research and creative excellence.
Having been invited to join the U 15 demonstrates a growing respect for the University of
Manitoba's position among Canada's large, research-intensive universities. This reorganization,
and the associated adjustment in title for the VP (Research) to draw attention to the change, will
assist the university in taking advantage of the opportunities and recognition that will come from
participating fully in U15 activities.

RE:
We are writing to advise of a change in the organizational structure of our offices.
Presently, the Office of International Relations is a reporting unit of the Office of the VicePresident (Academic) and Provost. Effective immediately, this office will report through the
Office of the Vice-Pre$ident (Research). ,
As you are aware, ·our University is now a member of the U 15. As leadership
responsibility for the international agenda in the majority of member universities rests with the
vice-president (research), this change will ensure that our University is a full. participant in
discussions and colla!Jorative initiatives at the national level regarding internationalization.
Digvir and I will be working to establish a"senior level advisory group, with representation
across the vice-presidential offices, to ensure integration, engagement and collaboration in this
broad priority area.
