UBC Reports | Vol. 49 | No. 1 | Jan. 2, 2003



Your article “The Challenge for Partnered Professors” (in UBC Reports, Dec. 5, 2002) was heartening for those partnering professors who have been systematically discriminated against at UBC for 25-30 years; I say “heartening” because UBC might just do something for them before retirement… Yes, indeed, “institutions in general, once they've secured the services of one person, … tend to take the support of the other more or less for granted…” Perhaps a more balanced approach would be to report now on all those at UBC who have not really been granted “joint placement”, regardless of their qualifications and a quarter century of loyal service to this institution.
