Fall Congregation 1995
First Nations grad
probes street life
by Charles Ker
- Lauri Gilchrist
Staff writer
kapitipis e-pimohteyahk.
Translation: We walk all night.
Lauri Gilchrist thought it fitting to include this Cree expression in the title of her
doctoral thesis on aboriginal street youth in
Vancouver, Winnipeg and Montreal.
Her work tells the story of four men
and five women aged 14
to 20 who live on city ^^^^^^""
streets. Two former street
people, now in their late
20s, also recount their impressions of street life for
aboriginal youth.
"Without exception,
these kids said their experience at keeping safe
and warm involved walking all night." says
Gilchrist, one of 1,955
UBC  students receiving
degrees during the uni-    	
versity s Fall Congregation
Nov.  23.  "If they didn't,  they were in
danger of being beaten up or killed by
people looking to victimize them."
The 49-year-old educational studies
graduate is the first aboriginal woman to
receive a PhD from UBC. Getting her doctorate is something Gilchrist has dreamed
about since she started taking university
courses at the University of Regina in 1974.
Her experience as a high school counsellor and a provincial child-care worker
made her realize that she wanted to
address the causes of youth problems
and not deal with the symptoms.
Gilchrist says aboriginals account for
up to 70 per cent of the street youth
population in many Canadian cides. Overt
racism, she adds, makes already harsh
living conditions worse for aboriginal
youth. It also makes it harder for them to
escape the vicious cycle of disconnection
"They don't want
to be caught by
anybody because
they'll just be put
back to wherever it
is they're running
from family, home, history and culture.
"They, more than others, come from
detention centres, adoption breakdown,
foster homes and other state institutions which makes them highly elusive." she says. "They don't want to be
caught by anybody because they'll just
be put back to wherever it is they're
running from."
Originally from Meadow Lake, Sask.,
Gilchrist began work on
,mm——mm■ her PhD in 1989. After
two years  of required
course work and extensive research, she   was
ready to write a historical thesis on the development  of aboriginals'
control over their education in the early 1970s.
Plans took a dramatic
change in January 1993
when the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peo-
  pies asked her to undertake a study of First Nations street youth in Canada.
Gilchrist certainly had the credentials for the task. In 1988, after completing a Master of Social Work at Carleton
University, she conducted an international study on treatment programs for
indigenous children who were solvent
abusers. The 18-month project took her
to New Zealand, Australia, and throughout the U.S. and Canada.
By the time Gilchrist submitted her
report on street kids to the commission
last March, she had compiled close to
400 pages of excerpts and analysis
drawn from 11 individual case studies.
When she started the study, Gilchrist
said her main worry was that the youth
involved wouldn't be able to effectively
communicate their stories. She couldn't
have been more wrong.

UBC research cited
among most influential
by Gavin Wilson
Stciff writer
UBC ranks as Canada's second most
influential research institution, according to a survey ofthe country's 45 largest
universities conducted by the U.S.-based
Institute for Scientific Information.
The institute's publication Science
Watch looked at performance in 20 fields,
measuring how many times the results of
research papers were quoted in other papers. About 4,000 ofthe world's top journals were scrutinized from 1990 to 1994.
The universities were measured according to two separate measures: average citations per paper and total citations. The results showed UBC was sec
ond only to the University of Toronto.
"Two institutions in particular—the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia—clearly showed their clout in
both tables, appearing in the rankings far
more frequently than any of the other institutions," the publication reported.
Ranked by total citations, UBC placed
among the top three universities in the
country in 17 out of 20 categories, with a
first place showing in physics and second
place in plant and animal sciences, microbiology and education.
Also in this category, UBC placed third
in chemistry, geosciences, computer science, mathematics, ecology/environmental, agricultural sciences, clinical medi-

Student urges
The Women's Centre
distributed flyers advertising a
university Senate meeting and
denouncing the Dept. of
Political Science. As a PhD
student in that department, I
was deeply offended that those
flyers associate the department
with the KKK (Ku Klux Klan). It
was hurtful.
Although I welcome discussion within my department on
issues of climate, it is my
choice whether to declare war,
and I believe the level of
conflict evidenced by the flyers
to be both unnecessary and
counterproductive. I have
persevered in my academic
career here at UBC from
entrance into the MA program
to the writing stage of the PhD.

served as artistic director and
producer on numerous productions.
Since winning the Dominion
Drama Festival Acting Award in
1946, her achievements have included a YWCA Woman of Distinction Award and the Order of

The KKK reference, by its
implication, demeans that
We probably agree on some
basics, for example, that the
struggle for gender parity is
not yet won. But we disagree
about how best to bring about
change, for example, the
merits of making an example
of one department at the
university. Before taking up
arms, one must ask whether
the grounds warrant it and the
cause will benefit. The negative
campaign against my department fails on both counts. It
has fed a backlash against
feminism and it hurt those it
presumably defends.
The need of my department.
and the university at large, is
for ideas, proposals and
suggestions as to the kinds of
interactions between students
and faculty, genders and races
that are desirable, and how to
foster them. We must now look
for lessons and positive
outcomes. I hope that graduate
students and faculty in other
departments have learned from
our experience, and discuss
gender and race issues in a
mature and constructive
manner as a community. If we
assert that we have a right to
an equitable, positive climate,
we must recognize also our
responsibility for it.

Says Gilchrist: "We thought
they wouldn't be smart enough
to say the things that needed to
be said. What happened was
that they spoke with more eloquence and more depth than
any sociologist ever could have."
Eventually. Gilchrist's academic advisers convinced her to
use the street youth study as the
basis for her PhD thesis.
Having a doctorate is important to Gilchrist because she believes it puts her in a better position to change policy and programming for aboriginal youth.
Afterthegraduation ceremony—
which will be attended by her three
daughters, all of whom attend
Carleton University, and her
mother—Gilchrist will return to
teaching social work at the Saskatchewan Indian Federated College. Part of her work involves sitting on the Canadian Association
of Schools of Social Work Accredi
tation Board to ensure authentic
representation of aboriginal issues
in social work curriculum.
Within UBC's Faculty of Education, Gilchrist is the sixth First
Nations PhD graduate since 1990.
There are currently another six
aboriginal students completing
their doctorates in the Dept. of
Educational Studies alone. In the
last decade, the department has
conferred two dozen master's degrees on First Nations graduates
and another dozen are working
towards their master's degrees.
More than 5,000 students
graduated from UBC during the
four-day Spring Congregation
ceremony last May. This fall's
graduates make up the greatest
number of students ever to receive degrees from UBC at Fall

cine, biology and biochemistry,
molecular biology, neuroscience,
pharmacology, psychology/psychiatry and economics and business.
As Science Watch pointed out,
ranking by total citations favours
large institutions that produce
more papers. However, UBC also
fared extremely well in rankings
by average citations per paper,
which levels the playing field with
smaller institutions.
Ranked this way, UBC placed
among the top three universities
eight times: first in agricultural
sciences and neuroscience, second in computer science, microbiology and education and third
in physics, clinical medicine, biology and biochemistry.

Giving to united cause
comes easily to many
Departments and individuals across
campus continue to rally behind the United
Way campus campaign, often surprising
even seasoned United Way volunteers with
displays of generosity and caring.
Pat Rose, a secretary in the Creative
Writing Dept. who organized a rummage,
bake and book sale for the United Way,
was pleasantly surprised by the generosity of the creative writing students and
other departments who donated prizes
for a 50-50 draw.
"We sent out a fax to the departments
asking for draw prize donations and a lot
of people responded. So many people
from different areas showed their support. It was really great," said Rose, who
has organized United Way fund-raising
events for the past three years.
The 50-50 draw, in which half the
money raised through ticket sales goes to
the United Way and the other half to the
draw winner, led to another surprise. The
student who won the initial draw insisted
on giving the money back. In the end, the
prize money was split between three students. United Way emerged the real winner with more than $839 raised for the
Another student purchased warm winter clothing for a neighbour's children.
Clothing and household goods left over
after the sale, which took place on Oct. 31
and Nov. 1. went to charities and families
in need. Rose said.
Claudia Steeves. United Way's educational division campaign co-ordinator,
said overall the United Way campaign is
well on its way toward the goal of $20.4
million while the UBC campaign is nearing the two-thirds mark. The campus
campaign goal is $300,000.
"We still need to hear from our annual
donors," she said. "We still need their
help to get us across the finish line."
The second set of pledge forms went out
to the campus community recently, and
Steeves encourages donors to get their
donations in by Nov. 17 to be eligible for
the Nov. 24 draw for airline tickets donated by Athletics and Sport Services.
People who miss the deadline can still
donate to the campaign until Dec. 15, she
Plant Operations' United Way volunteers hope to beat the $900 raised at a

Unique database logs
immigrant student traits
Taiwanese children score higher in math
skills than other student immigrants to
Vancouver, a fact which should not come
as a total surprise. Taiwan has longer
school days, a longer school week and
compulsory math tests every day.
Mathematics knowledge is just one of
84 variables Assoc. Prof. Lee Gunderson
has measured in a descriptive study on
the background characteristics of school-
age immigrants entering Vancouver
schools. Since 1989. he has collected information on some 15.000 students.
Working with the Vancouver School
Board's Oakridge Reception and Orientation Centre (OROC), Gunderson has compiled a database he describes as "awesome."
'There's is nothing like it in the world."
said Gunderson. of UBC's Dept. of Language Education. "What other assessment and research centre does interviews in 141 languages?"
Since the centre's inception in 1989.
close to 24,000 students have been tested
and interviewed in their first language and
placed at the appropriate level in schools.
In 1990, Gunderson received permission to conduct a long-term, three-part
research project which included: coding
and analysis of data collected at the
OROC; an analysis of predictors of achievement related to OROC students by tracking their academic success: and a follow-
up study based on interviews with students who have been assessed at the
Some of the other items recorded for
Gunderson's descriptive study are: immigration status: country of origin: date
of entry; date of birth; birth status; when
they started to walk; age of single-word
and single-sentence utterances; when
they began reading; age enrolled at school;
presence of books and magazines in the
home; favourite and least favourite subject; and preference for reading alone.
Preliminary data analysis has shown
that Cantonese children appear to say
their first words earlier than English-
speaking students and those students
who have not been to a dentist score lower
in reading comprehension. Gunderson
points out that students with no dental
records are often refugees from war-torn
countries without adequate dental services or school systems.
Give A Book, Enrich A Life
Gavin Wilson photo
A book drive for developing countries, sponsored by the Alma Mater Society and Oasis, a cross-cultural student
club, hopes to collect 1,000 volumes on campus, says Am Johal, AMS director of administration, pictured here.
The books are turned over to the International Book Bank, a non-profit organization that sends them to
elementary, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions in developing countries. Textbooks, novels
and other books can be dropped off in the box in the SUB concourse until the end of November.
The OROC study isjust one of a number
of interesting projects Gunderson has
conducted during the last few years. He
recently finished an examination of ESL
students' English achievement and perceptions of their educational experience
in Richmond.
When asked to list the worst things
about going to school in Richmond. 80 per
cent of both Grade 8 and Grade 12 ESL
students questioned thought there were
"too many Chinese students" which made
it hard for them to practice English.
Gunderson opens the Faculty of Education's lecture series on Nov. 21 with a talk
titled. Educating ESL Students: WlwreDoWe
Go From Here? His presentation will cover
the role of English in instruction, immigrant
\iews of B.C. schools and the learning of
Canadian culture. As well. Gunderson will
discuss various policy and teaching issues
arising in classrooms and schools where
ESL students are the majority.
Gunderson's free lecture starts at 7:30
p.m. in the Judge White Theatre at the
Robson Square Conference Centre.

year tradition
When Wendy Clay and Joy Coghill receive their honorary degrees on Nov. 23,
they will be taking part in a tradition that
has been central to UBC's convocation
ceremonies for the past 50 years.
From divas to diplomats, prime ministers to prima ballerinas and soldiers to
scholars, UBC has since 1945 recognized
the distinguished achievement and outstanding service of 191 individuals with
honorary degrees, the highest award the
university can bestow for personal excellence, eminence and accomplishment.
"People who have had an impact on
society because of their innovation, dedication and talent are key in our selection
process," said Barry McBride, dean of
Science and chair of the Tributes Committee which reviews candidates for honorary
McBride heads a 13-person committee
comprising student and faculty representatives from Senate, including deans. The
university's president, chancellor, registrar and director of Ceremonies serve as
ex-officio members.
McBride explained that anyone may
nominate a person for an honorary degree
and, although there are no strict categories, nominees are usually distinguished
academics, creative artists, public servants and persons prominent in the community and the professions. Elected officials are not eligible until they have completed their term of office.
The Tributes Committee considers approximately 60 candidates each year, about
12 of whom are selected by Senate to
receive honorary degrees at either spring
or fall convocation ceremonies.
Previous honorary degree recipients
include novelist Robertson Davies. artist
Jack Shadbolt, Supreme Court Justice
Beverley McLachlin, educator and advocate for aboriginal education Verna
Kirkness, labour activist Diana Kilmury
and former Prime Minister John Turner.

UBC received a certificate of merit from the federal government at the recent Employment Equity
Merit Awards Ceremony held in Ottawa.
Certificates of merit recognize the achievement of small, medium and large employers in carrying
out employment equity activities leading to the recruitment and retention of designated group
members: women, aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and visible minorities.
The awards have been sponsored by the Federal Contractors Program since 1990 and are open to
federal contractors and employers covered under the Employment Equity Act. UBC, which also won
a certificate of merit in 1992. is the first university to be recognized twice.
UBC was praised for its new Policy on Discrimination and Harassment, the First Nations Longhouse.
increasing accessibility for students with disabilities and the establishment of the Employee and
Family Assistance Program. Also noted was the significant increase in the rate at which women are
appointed to faculty positions.
The award was presented by James Lehey, deputy minister of Human Resources Development, and
was accepted on behalf of the university by Marcelle Sprecher, director of Compensation, Development
and Human Resources Information Systems.

Which makes the new Civic Hatchback ideal for the way you
live. The engine packs more punch, so you can go where you
want. A longer wheelbase gives you more room inside enough
to pack in over 375 litres of friends and/or life's necessities—

50/50 split fold-down rear seatback gives you more choices.
Plus looks that set back the competition. Best of all, you won't

Security patrol receives
intensive custom training
by Connie Filletti
Stq|jf writer
How well could you protect
your home if it measured one
million square metres?
That's the daily challenge facing UBC Parking and Security
Sendees' (PASS) 35 full-time patrol members responsible for
campus safety.
'The campus is equivalent to
4,800 large houses." said PASS
director John Smithman. "The
six patrol members who are on
shift at any one time would have
five seconds to check each house.
We have a big job to do."
That's one reason why PASS
personnel are being offered the
most intensive formal training
available to university security
officers in the country.
Ten patrol members are currently enrolled in the four-week
course developed last year by
the Justice Institute of B.C. in
consultation with security directors at post secondary institutions in the province.
As well as providing basic training about laws, regulations and
securing public and private property, the curriculum recognizes
the unique environment in which
campus security officers work.
In UBC's case, that includes
learning how to work effectively
with a police force present on
campus and knowing how to
safely conduct bomb searches.
He applauded patrol members for asking for more training
and taking an active role in shaping the curriculum. Together
with the Workers' Compensation Board and the Justice Institute of B.C., PASS was instrumental in designing a UBC module for the course, he added.
Smithman believes a major
strength of the course is that it
represents the increased need
for professionalism among campus security personnel.
"The world and people have
changed," Smithman said. "More
is being demanded from security
personnel. Observe and report
was the old way of doing things.
Today, the emphasis is on getting involved. We need to understand how to do the job better
and the skills to do it."
Social and cultural issues
addressed in the curriculum
which indicate the evolving role
of university security officers
include multiculturalism, violence against women, sexual
abuse and crisis intervention.
Among the training provided
is strategies to reduce stress for
trauma victims and developing
interview skills for dealing with
diverse cultures.
As a result of the course,
Smithman hopes that the campus community will see an immediate change in the level of
sensitivity, understanding and
professionalism in patrol members.
"In the long-term. I expect that
a strong, well-trained and professional security force will serve as
a deterrent to criminal activity on
campus." he said. "We will do
everything we can with people to
enhance security."
