Declarations of conflict of interest 8.01 At the beginning of each meeting of Senate or any of Senate’s committees or councils, the chair will call for members to declare any conflicts of interest with regard to any agenda item. For agenda items to be discussed in closed session, the chair will call for declarations of conflict of interest at the beginning of the closed portion of the meeting. Members may nonetheless declare conflicts at any time during a meeting. 8.02 A member shall be considered to have an actual, perceived or potential conflict of interest, when the opportunity exists for the member to use confidential information gained as a member of Senate, or any of Senate’s committees or councils, for the personal profit or advantage of any person, or use the authority, knowledge or influence of the Senate, or a committee or council thereof, to further her/his personal, familial or corporate interests or the interests of an employee of the university with whom the member has a marital, familial or sexual relationship. 8.03 Members who declare conflicts of interest shall not enter into debate nor vote upon the specified item upon which they have declared a conflict of interest. The chair will determine whether it is appropriate for said member to remove themselves from the meeting for the duration of debate on the specified item(s). 8.04 Where Senate or a committee or council of Senate is of the opinion that a conflict of interest exists that has not been declared, the body may declare by a resolution carried by two-thirds of its members present at the meeting that a conflict of interest exists and a member thus found to be in conflict shall not enter into debate on the specified item upon which they have declared a conflict of interest. The chair will determine whether it is appropriate for said member to remove themselves from the meeting for the duration of debate on the specified item(s).

Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies 1.1.1. To add a new Event Management Minor to the undergraduate program offerings of the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies, effective September 2020, as follows: Academic Requirements 1. The Minor is available to all University of Waterloo undergraduate degree students. 2. Normally, a maximum of two courses (1.0 unit) obtained on Letter of Permission or in transfer credit may be applied toward fulfilment of the Event Management Minor. These courses must be equivalent to the course requirements as assessed by the school/department offering the replaced course. 3. Students must complete the 2.0 units of required courses, and 2.0 units from the elective list. Successful completion of the 4.0 units with a cumulative average of 65% is required for the Minor. Required courses (2.0 units) REC 215 REC 219 REC 319 REC 419 Elective courses (2.0 units) AFM 123 ENGL 210F ENGL 210G ENGL 295 ENVS 105 HRM 200 PACS 202 PHIL 215 PSCI 100 PSCI 231 PSYCH 238 or MSCI 211 PSYCH 340 REC 218 REC 356 SPCOM 204 SPCOM 223 SPCOM 325 SPCOM 433 Rationale: The Event Management Minor is designed to introduce students to the growing field of event studies. The Minor will explore foundational concepts and theories, and examine the impact of events on individuals and communities. Through community partnerships and experiential learning opportunities, students will plan, design, implement and assess events to achieve important outcomes, such as those related to social justice, inclusion, economic development, environmental sustainability, tourism development, sport development and community well-being. The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies has received permission from the supporting departments to offer the listed courses as electives in the Event Management Minor. SUC Agenda, 2019-03-12, Page 6 of 154 Item 3a 2. ACADEMIC PLAN CHANGES (For Approval) 2.1. Department of Kinesiology 2.1.1. To revise the Rehabilitation Sciences Minor degree requirements, effective September 2020, as follows: The Rehabilitation Sciences Minor is open to University of Waterloo students who wish to obtain some specialization in rehabilitation sciences. The honours kinesiology program is well suited to prepare students for future study/practice in a wide variety of health professions (e.g., physical therapy, chiropractics, occupational therapy, athletic therapy, clinical kinesiology). Although the kinesiology core includes several rehabilitation science courses, the Rehabilitation Sciences Minor is designed to provide additional elective courses in rehabilitation sciences to prepare students for success in post degree study/practice in the health professions. Requirements 1. Students must be in an honours or three- or four-year general program at Waterloo. 2. Normally, a maximum of 2.5 units (five courses) obtained on a Letter of Permission Form or in transfer credit may be applied toward fulfilment of the Rehabilitation Sciences Minor course requirements. These courses must be equivalent to courses listed in the course requirements (including any prerequisites) as assessed by the department offering the replaced course. 3. Successful completion of 5.0 units from the requirements listed below. Legend * KIN 431, KIN 432, KIN 433, KIN 472 must be on a rehabilitation sciences topic and approved in advance by the course supervisor and associate chair, undergraduate studies. Required courses (2.5 units): KIN 340 KIN 407 KIN 414 KIN 415 KIN 422 Elective courses (2.5 units): KIN 301 KIN 312 KIN 356 KIN 357 KIN 404 KIN 405 KIN 416 KIN 418 KIN 427 KIN 428 KIN 429 KIN 431* KIN 432* KIN 433* or KIN 472* KIN 446 KIN 456 KIN 457 KIN 458 KIN 491 KIN 492A and KIN 492B ENGL 109 or ENGL 140R or any one of ENGL 210E, ENGL 210F, ENGL 210H HLTH 421 Note Admission requirements vary greatly among professional schools (e.g., physiotherapy, chiropractic, occupational therapy). It is therefore imperative that students consult professional schools directly when choosing courses. SUC Agenda, 2019-03-12, Page 7 of 154 Item 3a Rationale: KIN 312 was renumbered from KIN 242 effective September 2019 (approved at Senate Undergraduate Council, October 2018) and this motion allows the 2019/2020 Undergraduate Calendar to reflect the correct course number. HLTH 421 is not a relevant topic area for those pursuing the Rehabilitation Sciences Minor. It is part of the Human Nutrition Minor and may have been added to the Rehabilitation Sciences Minor, in error. 2.2. Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies 2.2.1.
