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
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.
