Senate had approved the establishment of the Development Foundation of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of The University of Western Australia (originally a fund-raising body for the then Division of Medicine and Dentistry) by its R489/91. By R440/93 the Senate had approved amendments to the constitution to reflect changes which had occurred as a result of the review of devolution.
The Executive Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry had recently asked that the Foundation be disestablished as it had not been a success and had no funds.


to approve the disestablishment of the Development Foundation of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of The University of Western Australia.


Under the provisions of Clause 12 (k)(ii) of Statute No 20 (Guild of Undergraduates), it was a requirement that proposed amendments to the Guild Regulations be submitted to the Senate for consideration.
The Guild President had forwarded a statement of proposed changes to the Guild Regulations which govern elections. The relevant extracts from the Regulations had also been attached to the agenda. The Electoral Commission had identified some problems with the regulations in 1998 and had asked the Guild to make the necessary amendments. The Commission had allowed the Guild to operate under the old regulations for its 1999 elections, but had required that the regulations be amended in time for the 2000 elections. The changes listed in 2 - 5 of the statement were those requested by the Commission, while those in 1 and 6 had been initiated by the Guild.


that the Senate approve the proposed changes to the Guild's Regulations governing elections, subject to final drafting by the Legislative Committee.


Members had before them a written report from the Vice-Chancellor. Before introducing the Report, the Vice-Chancellor paid warm tribute to Mr Barrett-Lennard’s remarkable 28 years of service to the Senate, and thanked him for his long and valued contribution to the University.
Professor Schreuder went on to invite members to advise him of any issues which they would wish to see included in future Vice-Chancellor’s Reports.
The Vice-Chancellor elaborated on some items in his Report, and in addition spoke briefly about the report of the Auditor General on the University's Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 1999. Several items in the Report were highlighted as noted below.
12.1 The Financial Statements for the Year Ended 31 December 1999
Senators noted that part of the University's accounts would be subject to a "qualification" relating to a technicality of accounting procedure. Many other universities were in the same situation and the issue was the subject of ongoing discussion with the Auditor General. It was likely that in future years DETYA would avoid the problem by paying grant moneys in the year of intended use rather than at the end of the preceding year.
12.2 Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) - Acceptance of Contract
Members noted that Professor Michael Barber, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), had accepted a three year contract beyond his current period of appointment.
12.3 University Solicitor - Change of Title
Senate noted that the title of the University Solicitor had been changed to 'University Counsel'.
12.4 Perth International Arts Festival
The Vice Chancellor had attached to his Report details of the proposed future management structure of PIAF.
Senate discussed proposed future management and budgeting arrangements, and it was agreed that appropriate budget documentation would be made available later in the year.
Secretary’s Note: Further information on an expanded senior management structure for PIAF, supplied by the Vice Chancellor, is attached, together with information on the Board of PIAF, which is a committee of the Senate. (Senate members only)
12.5 Legal Action against the University by Dr T Quickenden
There was brief discussion of the Vice-Chancellor’s report on the progress of legal action against the University by Dr T Quickenden, during which Dr Quickenden left the Senate Room. The Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice Chancellor answered a number of questions and noted the views expressed by members on the issue of costs.
12.6 Elections to Academy of Science
Members noted with pleasure that Professors Adrian Baddeley and Mark Randolph had recently been elected to the Academy of Science, and asked that their congratulations be conveyed to both.


By its R69/99 the Senate had resolved "that a formal induction programme be developed for Senate members and offered at the beginning of each year."
At its meeting on 23 March the Chancellor’s Committee had set up a working party comprising Mrs June Jones (chair), the Hon Justice Christine Wheeler, the Registrar and Mrs Edgeley to draw up an induction programme. The Committee had endorsed the Working Party’s proposed programme at its meeting on 12 April and this was attached for members’ consideration.
The programme had been designed to be offered to individuals (or groups of individuals if the timing of their appointment makes this appropriate) at the outset of their membership rather than specifically as a programme to be offered at the beginning of each year.
In discussion it was agreed that the programme should be extended to offer Senate members the opportunity to observe teaching and research activities in the University. It was confirmed that the programme/package contained information on the relationships of the peak bodies within the organisation.


to approve the proposed induction programme for new members of Senate, subject to the inclusion of the opportunity to observe teaching and research activities in the University.


Members had before them a document setting out the Chancellor’s Committee’s draft priorities for the Senate and its standing committees for 2000, together with a draft programme of activities for the year (closely related to priorities). The document had been circulated to members on 20 April with an invitation to provide comment before the meeting. No comments had been received.
In introducing the draft the Chancellor advised that he planned that there would be a meeting of the Senate in the reserved slot in August to enable early follow-up on the August Colloquium. The nature of the Colloquium had yet to be finally determined, and a meeting of the Chancellor’s Committee in the near future would consider this.
Invited to comment, the Registrar told the Senate that an August Colloquium would be well-timed. The University’s draft Academic Profile document would be ready within the week and would be widely discussed over the next few months and this would lead into the reviews of structure and funding processes. The ongoing planning processes would provide a framework for Senate’s discussions, without constraining free thinking. In this way, Senate's contribution to planning could be integrated with other elements of the University’s established planning process.
The Vice-Chancellor suggested that Senate might consider starting the Colloquium with a briefing from an expert on international developments in higher education, who could stimulate thought by providing information on what is happening world-wide. He believed that such a speaker could be of assistance in setting a context to help Senate add value to the University’s strong planning processes.
There being no further discussion, the draft Plan for 2000 was accepted.

15. SENATE CHARTER - REF 06/12/001/010

Members were reminded that at the meeting on 27 April 2000, the Senate had resolved (R76/99) to adopt a charter which gave guidance to its operational role without diminishing its powers as specified in Clause 13 of the University Act. A draft charter had been submitted to the Senate at its meeting in June 1999 and the minutes record a decision "that in view of several expressions of concern about the purpose and wording of the proposed charter, it be withdrawn and resubmitted after further work had been done on it."
The Chancellor’s Committee had considered the draft at its meetings on 20 April and 11 May. A revised draft resulting from those meetings was now before Senate for consideration.
The draft included reference to the following Senate roles:
1. Responsibility for "control and management"
2. Stewardship
3. Custodianship
4. Assisting with the identification, resourcing and achievement of goals
5. Broad oversight
6. Involvement in promotion, positioning and resourcing of the University
7. Monitoring performance
8. Legislative authority
9. Partnership with the Vice-Chancellor
A member stated that he thought the draft a major improvement on the earlier version, and suggested one possible amendment to make appropriate reference to the Senate's need to be properly informed if it was to be in a position to carry out its monitoring role effectively. Brief discussion followed on the kind of information Senate should be given, with one member stressing that materiality was the key issue.


that the suggested amendment should be considered further by the Chancellor's Committee, and that the Charter should then be adopted, either as proposed in the attachment to the agenda or amended along the lines suggested.


Members noted that under the provisions of Clause 7 (1) of Statute No 14, "the Senate, on the recommendation of the Honorary Degrees Committee, may confer an honorary degree on any person for distinguished service within or without the State."
At a meeting on Friday 12 May 2000, the Honorary Degrees Committee had considered a nomination made by the Chancellor in terms of Clause 7 (3)(b) of the Statute and after discussion, had unanimously agreed to recommend to Senate that the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters be conferred on Dr Harold Schenberg. The Committee’s recommendation, together with a related recommendation, had been circulated at the same time as this agenda, with a request for an urgent response.
The Chancellor reported that while most senators had supported the recommendations circulated, some responses had not yet been received. He therefore sought the meeting's formal approval for the proposed award.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor advised that Dr Schenberg would be unable to receive the award at a formal ceremony, but that it might still be possible to make arrangements for an award to be made in hospital.


(i) to confer the Honorary Doctor of Letters on Dr Harold Schenberg in recognition of the distinguished service he had given through his significant contribution to the Arts over a long period; and
(ii) that the Chancellor be authorised to act as he judges best in relation to the conferral of the award.


At the last meeting Dr Quickenden had given notice that he intended to move a motion at this meeting seeking the introduction of a Whistleblowers' Policy within the University.
Members had before them a statement from Dr Quickenden indicating that after further consideration, he did not wish to move the introduction of a Whistleblowers' Policy within the University at this point, and explaining the reasons for his change of mind.

Dr Quickenden spoke briefly in explanation of his statement and distributed a document entitled "A Preliminary Working Paper on the External Appeal Avenues Available to staff and Students at The University of Western Australia" for members' information.



At a recent meeting of the Honorary Degrees Committee it had been agreed that, in future, calls for nominations for honorary degrees would go out via an all-staff email in May, and that the first meeting of the Committee would be in July or August after the start of Semester 2. This would enable offers of honorary doctorates to go out soon after the dates for the following year’s Graduation Ceremonies were set by the Senate (24 July) and would increase the chance of potential awardees being available for particular dates.

Members noted the invitation to submit nominations in writing to the Secretary, for Registrar,

no later than Friday 28 July




Members noted that the following Annual Reports had been received and could be read in the Vice-Chancellery on request:
