    The Chair welcomed members, Board and Council Chairs and Vice-Presidents to the first regular meeting of the Executive Committee for 2021-22. He conducted a brief orientation for members about the Executive Committee and its mandate, its Terms of Reference, and the main areas of responsibility for the Committee.

  3. Report of the President

    The President echoed the Chair's welcome to members of the Committee and expressed his appreciation and gratitude for their valuable counsel, advice, and oversight.

    He requested that the Committee move in camera for the first part of his report.

    The Committee moved in camera.

    The Committee returned to closed session.

    The President addressed the following:

    Federal Government Matters 

    The President noted the outcome of the September 20th Federal election and the formation of another Liberal minority government. He reported that the University had been actively engaged in advocacy efforts leading up to the election and that a number of the higher education sector’s priorities had been reflected in the Liberal party’s platform commitments. These included:
  • $500 million for 1,000 new Canada Research Chairs to help attract and retain top talent at Canadian universities;
  • $2 billion into an initial endowment to establish a Canada Advanced Research Projects Agency (CARPA) as a ‘public-private bridge for research that helps develop and maintain Canadian-led technology and capabilities in high-impact areas’;
  • $500 million over four years to support students’ mental wellbeing, to improve wait times and increase access to mental health care at colleges and universities. The fund would enable the hiring of up to 1,200 new mental health care counsellors, including those who can support the particular needs of BIPOC students; and
  • $75 million to an annual Research Mobilization Fund to help colleges and universities commercialize their leading research.

    The President noted that the government was also expected to move ahead on several commitments from their 2021 budget that impacted the higher education sector.

    Provincial Government Matters 

    Turning to provincial government matters, President Gertler noted that Premier Ford’s second throne speech was delivered on October 4th, in advance of the Fall Economic Statement expected in November and the next Budget planned for the spring, prior to the June election. He noted that the emphasis had been on the continued response to the pandemic, initiatives in the health and long-term care sectors, and attention to fiscal and economic recovery. He noted that there had been no specific reference to the higher education sector, but that advocacy continued with a focus on a new tuition policy framework and operating grants for universities, as well as measures to ensure financial sustainability.

    The President invited the Acting Provost to comment on a number of matters including updates on COVID-19.  

    Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment

    The Provost reported that the review process for the University’s Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment had been initiated and would start with a consultation phase to allow members of the community to provide feedback. Alongside any issues raised in the consultation phase, the review would address four specific areas:
    1. best practices to address barriers to reporting and support survivors;
    2. the power dynamics inherent in institutions of higher learning;
    3. what information could be shared with participants about outcomes, while taking into account confidentiality, privacy, and fair and effective process; and
    4. consideration of a method for sharing information about sexual misconduct across universities.

Professor Young noted that any recommendations or policy changes arising from the review would come forward to governance in Cycle 6.

The Provost continued his remarks with an update on the University’s ongoing response to the pandemic.

Vaccination Rates/Clinics

Professor Young noted that 86,500 members of the community had declared their vaccination status on UCheck and more than 99% had indicated that they were fully vaccinated or were on their way to being fully vaccinated. Staff were working to verify the large volume of proof of vaccination documents. He reported that the University was assessing how best to use the Ontario government’s vaccine passport to verify the vaccination status for those who do not have UCheck access, such as visitors. Pop-up vaccine clinics continued to operate on all three campuses and updated information on how and where to get vaccinated was available on the UTogether website.

Students

The Provost reported that the University continued to support its students in important ways including its quarantine program which had supported more than 9,000 students from overseas. He noted also that the University had dispersed over $11 million in COVID-19 Emergency Grants to more than 8,000 students since March 2020.

Research

Professor Young reported that as of October15th, academic research labs which met the definition of “instructional space” were permitted to operate at full capacity without social distancing, provided the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment was worn. Academic leaders were using the General Workplace Guidelines to determine when and where expanding lab capacity could be done safely. He also reported that on July 16th, the Research Ethics Boards had begun accepting submissions for high risk face-to-face human participant research which had been paused due to concerns about the safety of participants. He noted that all such activities also had to be reviewed by the Face-to-Face COVID-19 Review Committee before commencing. Researchers were able to conduct off campus research provided they followed all local public health and third-party location requirements. In terms of international research, Professor Young reported that a general suspension of student international travel would remain until December 31st, but that PhD students might be granted an exception if the completion of their research or dissertation would be significantly impacted by this restriction.

Academic Continuity

The Provost reported that campuses and divisions had adopted a range of approaches to course delivery. Approximately 15% of courses were in-person only, 45% were being delivered with a mix of in-person and remote learning, and 40% were remote only. He noted that many students had communicated the importance of being physically on campus for their mental well-being, and that faculty and staff had worked hard to ensure that students returned to a safe and welcoming environment, including extensive work to improve ventilation and HVAC systems. He anticipated that there would be a careful increase in on-campus activity for the Winter 2022 term and that more in-person courses would be available. Course delivery modes would be communicated to students as soon as possible to allow them to plan accordingly. Professor Young shared an update to the University’s mask policy that had been approved under Governing Council’s Summer Executive Authority.  The criteria for acceptable masks had been refined resulting in a change in name of the Policy on Non-Medical Masks or Face Coverings, to the Policy on Face Masks. He noted that instructors, with divisional approval, were permitted to remove their masks for pedagogical reasons, with guidance from Environmental Health and Safety.

Business Continuity

The Provost reported that the University’s fall enrolment numbers were healthy -- there had been an increase of nearly 9% in domestic student confirmations, and an increase of more than 5% in international student confirmations, putting UofT ahead of the average in the province. He reported that staff had been hard at work to open up food services and spaces on all campuses for students to eat, study, and relax between classes. He noted that a listing of available study spaces could be found on the new ‘Places and Spaces’ UTogether page. Professor Young also reported that the University’s early detection system to monitor for COVID-19 through wastewater testing had been expanded to include eight residences; with no outbreaks having been reported this term. He noted that this was one of the ‘12 Ways’ the University had prepared for a safe return to campus.

Questions from Members

The Provost went on to address questions that members had submitted in advance of the meeting. He updated members on the 40 recommended actions that had stemmed from the Report of the Task Force on Student Mental Health in January 2020, noting that great headway had been made. Sixteen actions had been completed, 12 were currently in progress, and 11 were ongoing, Specifically, Professor Young noted the following actions:

  • the adoption of a single tri-campus electronic medical records (EMR) system;
  • the roll out in September of open-access scheduling and one-at-a-time service delivery at all three campuses to allow students same-day open access to connect with a counsellor to discuss their mental health concerns. Anecdotal feedback was that students were extremely happy about the responsiveness and flexibility of this new client intake and service delivery model;
  • the continued development of the University’s acute care pathway with CAMH, and current tri-campus consultation to help determine a model that best supported U of T students with acute mental health needs and aligned with the University’s overarching Stepped Care 2.0 model; and
  • a Special Constable Review to consider the role of Special Constables on campus as first responders.

The Provost reminded members that reports on progress were available on a dashboard on the Provost’s website.

Responding to a comment that the incoming class’s preparedness for university may have been hindered by the pandemic, the Provost confirmed that the University was aware of this challenge. He observed that one of the University’s key focuses had been student mental health and enumerated the efforts made to support students in these challenging times. He also noted that in-person and virtual orientation activities had been offered to incoming first-year students to help them transition to university life.

In response to a question about the recent reports of sexual violence at Western University and the campus climate and risk at the University of Toronto, the Provost affirmed that the goal of the University has always been to work to eliminate sexual and gender-based violence and harassment, and to build a culture of consent on its campuses. He referred again to the launch of the comprehensive review of the University’s Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment and reported that efforts to engage students in meaningful dialogue around consent and consent culture were ongoing.

The Provost concluded his remarks by expressing gratitude to all faculty members, librarians, and staff for the incredible effort they had made to ensure that campuses were safe and welcoming for students and to advance the University’s mission in these challenging times. He also expressed gratitude to Professor Salvatore Spadafora, in his role as Special Advisor to the President on COVID-19, for his committed work providing exemplary advice on all matters related to the pandemic.

A member asked whether there were differences in the University of Toronto’s culture from that of other institutions that resulted in fewer incidents like those that had recently been reported at Queen’s and Western. Professor Young posited that one contributing factor could be that UofT did not have the same residential culture as Western and Queen’s where students lived in close proximity in certain areas of London and Kingston. President Gertler added that the University continued to work diligently to inculcate a culture of consent on campus, noting that there was important work still to be done in this regard.

  1. Items for Endorsement and Forwarding to the Governing Council
    1. Report of the University Ombudsperson for the Period July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 and Administrative Response

      The Chair indicated that the Report of the University Ombudsperson and the Administrative Response were presented annually to the Governing Council for information. He noted that while the former Ombudsperson, Professor Emeritus Ellen Hodnett, was not present at the meeting, she would attend the Governing Council meeting on October 28 to speak briefly to her report and to answer any questions that might arise. Professor Trevor Young, Acting Provost, would also be present to offer a few comments on the Administrative Response.

      Professor Young offered some brief remarks on the Report of the University Ombudsperson. He expressed gratitude to Professor Emeritus Hodnett and her staff for the insightful report and for her team’s excellent work supporting the University community during an extraordinarily challenging year. He noted that the recommendations of the Report focused primarily on PM staff and priorities for the Division of People Strategy, Equity and Culture and that these recommendations had been accepted and their implementation was underway. He expressed confidence that the recommendations would help the University to continue to foster a caring community. He also noted that the administration had provided a table showing how the Ombudsperson's recommendations over the past five years had been implemented. Professor Young concluded his remarks by thanking Professor Emeritus Hodnett for the calm wisdom that she had brought to the role of Ombudsperson, and for her great service to the University.

      On motion duly moved, seconded, and carried

      YOUR COMMITTEE RESOLVED

      THAT the Report of the University Ombudsperson for the period July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 and Administrative Response be endorsed and placed on the agenda of the Governing Council meeting of October 28, 2021

    2. Bicentennial Campaign Plans and Priorities (Arising from Report Number 260 of the Business Board (October 5, 2021) and Report Number 235 of the Academic Board (October 12, 2021))

      The Chair introduced this item and noted that it had been discussed at various other governance bodies. He invited the Chairs of the Business Board and the Academic Board to comment on the discussions at their respective meetings.

      Professor Salvatore Spadafora reported that the Academic Board had received a comprehensive presentation on the Campaign’s academic priorities and its goals. In response to a member’s concern about investment of endowment funds in the fossil fuel industry, Mr. David Palmer, Vice-President, Advancement, had stated that the campaign would pursue funding for a wide range of academic priorities related to climate change and sustainability, including those referenced earlier in the meeting such as clean tech, climate policy, climate science, environmental conservation, renewable energy, and sustainability across the three campuses.  Mr. Palmer also had noted that students were the primary beneficiaries of campaign funding priorities and donations.  In response to a question about whether the University’s endowment policies related to fossil fuel divestment would have an impact on fundraising results, Mr. Palmer stated that to date they had not diminished the University's ability to raise funds and he expected that track record of success would continue into the public phase of the new campaign.

      Ms Anna Kennedy, then commented on the discussion of the item at the Business Board. She reported that the Board had been impressed by the level of detail and considered attention to the priorities that had been developed for the next campaign. Members had responded favourably to the fundamental commitments underlying the University’s approach and narrative for the campaign based on principles of inclusive excellence, access and a caring, inclusive community. In response to members’ questions, in particular regarding student mental health issues, Mr. Palmer and Professor Young had outlined a series of important initiatives identified and developed by Divisions – in addition, the campaign prioritized support for Divisional and University-wide initiatives for equity, diversity and inclusion. Ms Kennedy concluded her remarks by reporting that the Board had concurred with the Academic Board’s recommendation regarding the Campaign Priorities; and supported the recommendation regarding the Campaign Plans.

      Professor Young added that the updated Provostial Guidelines on Advancement had been reviewed before all meetings related to the Campaign. He confirmed that the Campaign would only raise funds for academic priorities and that all fundraising and processes would be consistent with academic freedom and freedom of influence. 

      On motion duly moved, seconded, and carried

      YOUR COMMITTEE APPROVED

      THAT the following recommendation be endorsed and forwarded to the Governing Council:

      THAT (i) the Summary of Approved Academic Priorities (Campaign Priorities Summary), as of August 20, 2021, and (ii) the Overview of Campaign Plans, copies of which are appended to the Vice-President, Advancement, Mr. David Palmer’s memorandum dated October 12, 2021, be approved as the planning framework for the University’s fundraising campaign.

    3. Revisions to the University of Toronto Policy on Capital Planning and Capital Projects* (Arising from Report Number 260 of the Business Board (October 5, 2021) and Report Number 235 of the Academic Board (October 12, 2021)) 

      The Chair noted that this item had also been considered by a number of governance bodies on all three campuses. He said that the revised Policy had arisen out of a Working Group that former Governing Council Chair, Claire Kennedy, had struck and that he had chaired and which included governors and members of the Operations and Real Estate Partnerships (OREP) team. The goal of the revised Policy was to give the administration the necessary flexibility to plan and execute capital projects on an expeditions and commercially effective basis, while at the same time providing governors with the necessary information, opportunities for discussion, and approval capabilities to ensure the fulfilment of governor obligations and to provide the administration with the necessary approvals to support their actions.

      At the invitation of the Chair, Professor Scott Mabury, Vice-President, OREP, made a few brief comments on the revised Policy. Professor Mabury highlighted the following major changes and updates reflected in the new Policy:
      • clarification on which aspects of the project proposal would be presented in Open Session and In Camera;
      • improved clarity on capital priorities, which would include an annual presentation to the relevant governance bodies of capital projects prioritized for the year;
      • revised project budget approval levels; and
      • project budget increases and scope changes would be considered by an ad hoc body consisting of the Chairs and Vice-Chairs of the applicable governance bodies, who could either approve the budget increase or determine that the revised total project costs would need to be brought back through the full governance path for approval.

Ms Kennedy then reported on the discussion of the item at the Business Board meeting. She had advised members that she had been part of the Working Group responsible for reviewing the current Policy and that the group had worked diligently to ensure effective governance and oversight of capital projects and initiatives, so that governors, would continue to fulfill their fiduciary obligations. She had noted that for the Business Board, clarification of its role in approving execution and financing of projects, where required, was paramount in considering this item. Ms Kennedy had clarified that the role of Business Board was not to consider the detailed design, function or look and feel of a building, but to consider if the University could afford it, and by approving execution, the Board would be effectively giving the University’s administration the authority to sign the underlying contracts and begin implementation. In response to a member’s question, Professor Mabury had explained that the execution of projects involved a competitive tender process for vendors, per University policies, procedures and practices; and as required by Provincial regulations for tendering and procurement initiatives undertaken by public institutions. Ms Kennedy reported that the Business Board supported the Vice-President, Operations and Real Estate Partnerships’ recommendation regarding the Policy on Capital Planning and Capital Projects.

Professor Spadafora then commented on the discussion at the meeting of the Academic Board. He noted that the proposed revisions had been well received and that members had had no questions.

Members had no questions about the item.

On motion duly moved, seconded, and carried

    1. Capital Project: Report of the Project Planning Committee for the Student Services Hub at the University of Toronto Mississauga (Arising from Report Number 235 of the Academic Board (October 12, 2021)) 

      The Chair reminded members that this was a Level 2 Capital Project which had been approved by the UTM Campus Council and Academic Board.

      At the invitation of the Chair, Professor Mabury made some brief remarks on the project. He noted that this was a student focused project that had been identified in 2004 as being critically needed. The Hub would bring together departments that were currently scattered throughout the Davis Building into a single location that would function as a ‘first stop’ for UTM students seeking personal support and development opportunities.

      In the absence of the Chair of the UTM Campus Council, Ms Samra Zafar, the Chair shared Ms Zafar’s comments about the discussion of the item at the meeting of that body. She reported that the Council had been provided with a detailed presentation of the capital project by Mr. Mark Overton, Assistant Principal, Student Services and Dean of Student Affairs. The Council had received the capital project on the recommendation of the UTM Campus Affairs Committee. A member had asked about how the proposed capital project would operationally tie services together to help students who had complex concerns. Mr. Overton had explained that both the physical structures and further refinement of existing processes would contribute to accomplishing this goal. He had noted that the Hello Desk would not only have a mix of very well-trained student peers, but also professional staff with significant experience who would be able to help students connect with the right service areas in a logical order. Ms Zafar reported that the project had been well received by members and had been approved by the Campus Council.

      There were no questions from members about this item.

      On motion duly moved, seconded, and carried
