starts traini
in interviewing
abused children
UBC Psychology Professor John
Yuille has been contracted by the provincial government to train professionals in interviewing children reported to
have been sexually abused.
"Lots of police and child protection
workers over the past few years have
been thrown into this interview task
without proper training. They' ve gone
in with the best of intentions but sometimes make mistakes because they
haven't been properly prepared," Yuille
"We want to improve the interview
procedure so we can improve the likelihood of getting information from the
child to allow the case to proceed."
Yuille has developed a program
called the Step-wise interview, which
provides training in interviewing children and a method for assessing their
credibility called Statement Validity
He will work with government social workers, RCMP officers and
Crown counsel in Burnaby and Prince
George during the two-year pilot project and the results will be assessed by
an inter-ministry steering committee.
"We are aware of how much child
sexual abuse has become an issue and
the special needs of children in terms
of how they are interviewed and how
people go about evaluating their evidence," Yuille said.
Although no statistics are available
for B.C., Yuille said that in the U.S.,
about half the cases of reported child
sexual abuse end up being labelled as
"It doesn't mean that they are false
allegations," Yuille said. "It means
that insufficient information was obtained."
Often the children involved in these
cases are extremely young, Yuille said.
Although professionals can interview
children as young as three years of
age, it is difficult because their communication skills are still developing,
he said.
"Children are suggestible and open
to the influence of adults. They can
end up being misled if an interviewer
isn't careful, so we want to make sure
that in the interview procedures we
use, we don't end up planting ideas or
misleading the children.
"These children have pretty short
attention spans and a variety of difficulties, especially if they have been
Evaluating the credibility of
children's allegations poses difficulties as well, Yuille said.
"In most of these cases, all you end
up with is the word ofthe child against
the denials of the adult. Research suggests that at least 90 per cent of the
allegations made by children are true,
but, nonetheless some are false."
All of the interviews are recorded
— mostly on videotape, but some on
audio tape, Yuille said, adding this is
becoming standard procedure in the
province and reduces the number of
times a child has to be interviewed.
The British government has endorsed the Step-wise project and Yuille
will be consulting in six U.S. cities
where the National Institute of Health
is field testing the Step-wise procedure.
President's report
on arts released
A special President's Report on the
Creative and Performing Arts highlighting the university's historically
strong commitment to the cultural life
of the province and the nation was
released recently.
The report documents the growth
of the arts at UBC from its beginnings
as an extra-curricular activity under
Frederic Wood, who laid the founda-
'► tion for the current Theatre Department, to its present status as a full
member of the university's academic
UBC has a long tradition of contributing to the making of art and the
study of art through its internationally
renowned faculty — professors such
as Earle Birney, Robert Silverman and
Jeff Wall; by bringing well-known
artists to campus such as Dylan Thomas and Yevegny Yevtushenko; and
through its graduates such as Larry
.*      Lillo and Richard Ouzounian.
UBC President David Strangway
said that "UBC plays a role both seminal and supportive," in Canada's artistic environment. "As the oldest and
largest university in British Columbia,
we are a crucial component in the arts
education system."
Strangway emphasized that UBC is
continuing its leading role with the
opening of a new creative and performing arts centre partially funded by
Vancouver businessmen Tom and
Caleb Chan.
"By 1995 we shall have a Creative
Arts Building entirely devoted to studio work in our art, music, theatre and
film programs," Strangway said.
The report is currently being distributed to all faculty.
High school musicians from B.C. will give a variety of performances on campus during the Pacific Coast
Music Festival May 11 and 12.  	
New dean to promote
women in the sciences
As she went through school, Judith
Myers never doubted she would become a scientist. Now the UBC professor is working to ensure other
women won't be discouraged from
taking the same path.
Myers has been appointed to the
new position of Associate Dean for the
Promotion of Women in Science in the
faculties of Science and Agricultural
Sciences, where she holds a cross appointment.
She begins the two-year term July
Myers wants to make the academic
environment a more inviting place for
women, encourage female students to
continue their studies and see that job
applicants are given a fair shake.
Science Dean Barry McBride, who
initiated the new position, said there is
an unprecedented opportunity for
women to enter science at a time when
job prospects have rarely been so prom
"But at the
same time we
must take steps
to ensure that
women are encouraged to pursue their careers
without facing
undue obstacles
and barriers," he
As a graduate student, Myers felt
the sting of male rebuke first-hand
when a prominent scientist told her
that her research project was too important to be left to a woman.
"That just made me mad and
even more determined to continue," said Myers, a population ecologist who
holds appointments
as a full professor in the de
partments of Zoology and Plant Science.
One of Myers' first priorities is to
bring more women onto faculty.
Today there are only 11 female
tenure track professors in

Soccer team heads
to U.S., Mexico
for world tourney
UBC's men's soccer team is up
against international competition this
They are competing in the World
Collegiate Soccer Championships in
Juarez, Mexico and Las Cruces, New
Mexico, April 19 to 22.
Eight teams, each champions in
their country or league, will compete
for the world title, defended by last
year's champions, Indiana University.
Three other teams are also from the
U.S. The remaining are from West
Germany, Brazil, and Mexico.
UBC's soccer team earned its spot
in the international area by placing first
in Canadian Inter-university Athletic
Union competition this season.
Overall, UBC put 25 men's and
women's teams representing 17 different sports into competition this year.
The women's field hockey team and
men's cross country team won bronze
medals in CIAU competition and 20
individual athletes won CIAU performance medals.
UBC student Erika Forster broke
the women's triple jump record and
Allen Klassen set a new record in the
1500 metre event at the CIAU Track
and Field championships in Winnipeg
last month. In all, 25 UBC athletes
were declared CIAU conference all-
stars—outstanding players in conference competition—and 18 were named
to the prestigious All Canadian list,
which recognizes outstanding players
across the country.
UBC's athletic teams have won
more CIAU championship titles, 27,
than any other Canadian university,
except the University of Toronto,
which has won 56, since the inception
ofthe CIAU in 1961.
The University of Victoria is tied
with the University of Western Ontario for third place with 20 championships.
UBC also plays host to more teams
from outside North America than any
other Canadian university. This season, the Soviet junior national women's
volleyball team wrapped up a North
American tour at UBC, and the Estonian National men's volleyball team
visited UBC for a major tournament
against top American and Canadian
university teams.
When the men's soccer team from
Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan
visited UBC this season, all its games
were broadcast on Japanese television.

ments, three per cent of total faculty
"That's the first step, ensuring there
are more women at the faculty level,"
she said. "It helps to create a friendlier
atmosphere and provides role models
for students."
She hopes this will help counter the
trend that sees the proportion of women
in Canada's academic community drop
rapidly , for example, from a high of
50 or 60 per cent in undergraduate
biological sciences to 30 per cent of
graduate students and 15 per cent of
university faculty. Proportions of females in physical sciences are even
Myers will look at procedures used
in advertising new positions and selecting job candidates. She feels there
is room to add a "positive bias" into
the interviewing process.
She stops short of advocating affirmative action quotas, although she
notes such programs have been in place
at U.S. universities for nearly 20 years.
Myers believes hiring women on
any basis other than their abilities will
condemn them to second class status
as scientists.
Women already battle the prevailing view that scientists must not interrupt their research to raise a family or
risk falling behind others in their field,
she said. As a mother of two, she feels
this attitude must change.
"I think it has to be recognized when
considering tenured positions and grant
funding that there may be times when
a women's productivity will not be as
high as their male colleagues," she said.
"But I am convinced that, given the
chance, the productivity of women over
their careers will compare favorably to
that of male scientists."

Needs of disabled
Re: Researchers trying to build
more efficient wheelchair.
The above article in the March
8,1990 issue of UBC Reports starts
with the sentence, "If people with
disabilities were better matched to
their wheelchairs...". This, and the
rest of the article, propagates the
mistaken notion that all disabled
people need wheelchairs.
This idea does a tremendous disservice to the many other visually,
hearing,   learning,   etc.,   disabled
people, many of whom feel ignored
by the media. A portion of mobility
disabled people need wheelchairs,
and the existing project described in
the article is about them. But please.
do not equate the needs of the "disabled" as being wheelchair needs.
There are many other disabilities,
and many, many unfulfilled needs.

Committee ponders discipline
for engineering students
At least five of the students involved in the engineering undergraduate society newsletter have met the
university's disciplinary committee.
At the time UBC Reports went to
print, the seven-member committee,
headed by Albert McClean, Associate Vice-President Academic, was
scheduled to meet with the final student on April 12.
UBC President David Strangway
will likely receive recommendations
from the committee soon after the
Easter weekend, McClean said.
Students have the option of meeting with the president personally to
discuss those recommendations. The
final decision on discipline rests with
the president under the University's
Disciplinary procedures recommended could range from no action to
indefinite suspension from the university, McClean said.
Students may appeal the president's
decision to the university's Senate
committee on student appeals on academic discipline.
Meanwhile, UBC is withholding
collection of fees from the Engineering Undergraduate Society. No further action has been taken against the
EUS to date.
UBC's Alma Mater Society has
voted to uphold a student court ruling
to fine the EUS $ 15,000 for publishing the offensive newsletter.
The EUS was asked to and published a full-page apology in the
March 30 issue of the student newspaper The Ubyssey.
Signed by newly elected EUS
President Daren Sanders, the apology outlined a commitment to eliminating prejudice in any form on
It said the EUS would organize a
potlatch in conjunction with the
Native community in November, organize a conference to deal with discrimination issues; and establish an
effective editorial review policy for
future publications.
Krajina honored by Czechoslovakia
Botany Professor Emeritus Vladimir Krajina was presented with the
nation's highest honor and given a
hero's welcome last month when he
returned to his homeland of Czechoslovakia after an enforced absence of
42 years.
Newly elected Czech president
Vaclav Havel gave Krajina the Order
of the White Lion in recognition of his
heroics with the Second World War
resistance movement.
Krajina, 85, was the leader of the
unified Czech resistance movement,
supplying the Allied powers with invaluable intelligence information until
he was captured and sent to a concentration camp.
After the war, Krajina served in the
Czechoslovakia parliament until the
Communist takeover forced him to flee
in 1948. He was tried in absentia as a
traitor and sentenced to 25 years im
It was not until the Communist party
recently loosened its grip on power
that Krajina's achievements were publicly recognized in Czechoslovakia.
Parking fees increasing
Parking rates for faculty, staff and
students will rise for the first time since
1984 if the Board of Governors approves a proposal from Parking and
Security Services.
Annual rates for faculty and staff
will increase to $120, an increase of
$24. Students' preferred parking will
be $72 a year, a rise of $12.
As well, parking in B lots will cost
15 cents an hour. Currently, the cost is
25 cents per day.
As part of a plan to beef up security
on campus, attendants will now be on
duty in all B lots, said John Smithman,
director of Parking and Security Services.
The increases are part of a five-year
parking plan going to the board at its
next meeting on May 2.

Food Services director Christine
Samson hopes the summer picnics will become a yearly event.
"What we're offering are complete
picnic packages. If you want to
take that special someone to a
romantic spot, we have a deluxe
basket for $30 that features Tarragon baked chicken, smoked
salmon, Camembert cheese with
French bread and Belgian chocolate. Companies or any other group
of at least 50 people can enjoy a
salmon barbecue, complete with
bannock and corn on the cob, for
under $18 per person. All they do
is choose the spot — or we can
suggest one — and tell us when
they want to eat."
Picnics on the Point are part of

Geophysics and Astronomy. Vogt
thinks the picnics are a great way
to enjoy the campus during its most
scenic months.

Theatre's fashion show
has champagne theme
The gowns are being fitted
and the trouser creases pressed
as the Theatre Department prepares for its Champagne Celebration: 75 Years of Fashion,
on April 29.
The theatrical fashion show,
built around a champagne
theme, will raise scholarship
funds for the Theatre
Department's design and technical students. The two-part
production will showcase 75
years of fashion as part of
UBC's diamond anniversary
year celebrations.
"The show will have a real
theatrical feel to it," said coordinator Mara Gottler, an assistant
professor in costume design in
the Theatre Department. "It's
not just clothing on display.
Each costume will be set into its
particular period context."
Vancouver Museum costume
historian Ivan Sayers will provide commentary on clothing
worn between 1915 and 1990
and on fashion that originated
in Canada.
"Ivan's narration will put the
clothing into a social and historical context," Gottler added.
"Our approach is a mixture of
sophistication and humor."
Complementary champagne
will be served to the audience
during intermission by Theatre
Department students attired in
1915 finery. Students are also
designing the set, lights and
sound for the show, managing
the house, serving as models
and ushering guests.
Much of the period clothing
has been donated by Sayers
and the rest will come from the
department's antique wardrobe

Students preparing
for music festival
About 5,000 high school students representing about 150
of B.C.'s best high school music groups are gathering at UBC
Friday and Saturday May 11 and 12 for the Pacific Coast
Music Festival.
An annual event, it is being held at UBC for the first time as
part of the university's Discover Summer at UBC program.
Now in its fourth year, the festival will offer the public a
smorgasbord of amateur musical talent—-jazz bands, concert
and jazz choirs, concert bands and small jazz ensembles—at
different campus venues.
"It's a celebration of music, a sharing, and an opportunity
for the students to appreciate and learn from others and
make their performance," said Kerry Turner, festival chair.
Pacific Coast Music Festival is an umbrella organization
committed to supporting music education in the province.
Turner emphasizes that the event is education-oriented—not
a competition.
Festival organizers bring in music adjudicators and educators, 'The best people we can," Turner said, to help students
and their group leaders improve their performance.
The students have been nominated from 18 regional festivals scattered around the province. For them it's a chance to
enjoy the excitement and challenge of performance, share
ideas with other high schools, make new friends with similar
interests and learn from musical experts.
Pacific Coast Music Festival is affiliated with MusicFest, a
national educational music festival to be held in Winnipeg on
May 14. B.C.'s nominated groups can choose to attend, but
many opt for the experience closer to home to minimize
costs, Turner said.
Next year's national festival, the 15th annual, is scheduled
to be held in Vancouver.

Sounds of music
to fill summer
The campus will be filled with
the sounds of music this summer
as two popular concert series return and UBC gains a new ensemble to add to its already rich
musical heritage.
One of the musical high points
of Discover Summer — and a
lasting legacy for the university
— is the creation of the UBC
Summer Strings.
This chamber orchestra is a
select group of 15 student string
players from the School of Music, co-directed by faculty members Geoffrey Michaels and Eric
The Summer Strings realizes
"a       long-held
dream of establishing a student
orchestra     on
campus during
summer   to
provide in-
tensi ve •">
training for
students in
tent upon performing       careers,"       said
School of Music
Director      Bill
It is hoped
this year's initiative will lead to
an ongoing
summer chamber orchestra program, giving
music students an opportunity for
summer jobs in their own field.
As well as providing employment, the Summer Strings will allow students to hone their skills
to superior levels while earning
university credit.
Full-length evening concerts of
the Summer Strings are scheduled for 8 p.m. on May 10 and 24.
Lunch-hour performances are at
12:30 p.m. on May 9 and 16, 23
and 30. All concerts will be held
in the Recital Hall.
Also this summer, two popular
music  programs  —  Summer
Sounds and Music for A
Summer's Evening — return to
campus in expanded formats to
salute the university's 75th anniversary.
Music for a Summer's Evening
is a free series of 10 concerts
held in the Recital Hall during the
Summer Session on Tuesday and
Thursday evenings beginning July
The concerts feature some of
the leading chamber musicians
from the School of Music faculty
and the Vancouver area, many of
them UBC graduates.
Already scheduled to perform
are the Purcell String Quartet, pi-
a n i st
Silverman and
a summer
band directed
by Martin Berinbaum.

Musical formats include light
pop-rock, country, traditional and
modern jazz and classical music,
including string and brass quartets from the School of Music.
This summer, the School of
Music is also playing host to the
Taipei Sinfonietta from Taiwan in
concert on Friday, July 20 at 8

about 30 players under the baton

Permanent Advisory
Committee on Sexual
19 15-1990
In June 1986, President Strangway established an Ad Hoc Committee to develop a policy on sexual
harassment for U.B.C. This Committee met with many interested
■„ groups and received several submissions on the two prepared draft
statements. Following this consultative process, the Committee formulated a final report which the President submitted to the Board of Governors for approval in February,
This Policy called for the establishment of the President's Permanent Advisory Committee on Sexual
Harassment with terms of reference
which can be summarized as follows: To develop and implement an
educational program on sexual harassment; to advise the President on
the appointment of advisors, mediators and hearing panel members, and
to provide for the instruction of these
individuals; to provide assistance to
the advisors and to those individuals
who have complaints lodged against
them; to investigate complaints and
decide if there is evidence to justify a
formal hearing; to submit an annual
report and to advise the President
on changes to the University policy
on sexual harassment.
The President's Advisory Committee was appointed during the summer of 1988 and the Committee met
19 times during the first year. This
report covers the activities of the
Committee during the period October 1988 to October 1989.
Education Program
In November, 1988 an Education
Sub-Committee was formed with a
mandate to develop an educational
_* program on sexual harassment for
the University community. This Subcommittee designed, produced and
distributed brochures and posters
explaining UBC's policy on sexual
harassment and the procedures for
dealing with it. Information about
UBC's policy has also appeared in
the Ubyssey and UBC Reports.
The Sub-committee has collected
information from other universities
about their sexual harassment programs and this information is available in the Advisor's Office.
19 15-1990
The Advisors met with student
groups during the fall term to inform
UBC students about the policy and
Additional small group information
sessions are planned.
It was decided that one very important aspect of the Sexual Harassment Policy is to ensure that the faculty, staff and students at UBC understand what constitutes sexual harassment.
Members of the UBC community
come from widely different backgrounds and occasionally individuals do not appreciate the effect of
their actions or comments on others.
The Committee hopes that every one
will study the description of sexual
harassment as outlined in the Policy
or the brochure.
Appointment of
A second Sub-committee responsible for advising on the appointment
of individuals to implement the University policy was formed. This Subcommittee reviewed over 60 nominations for the two positions of policy
advisors. The Advisors have the
major responsibility for the education program and for handling all inquires and complaints of sexual harassment at UBC. In the spring of
1989, the President appointed Mar-
garetha Hoek and Jon Shapiro as
Policy Advisors.
Our Policy provides the opportunity for informal resolution of sexual
harassment complaints by the parties themselves. Initially, the Advisors can facilitate this process.
In addition, the President has appointed five mediators, whose sole
responsibility under the Policy is to
mediate sexual harassment complaints within the University, when
called upon by the individuals involved.
If the advisors and mediators are
unable to resolve a complaint, the
matter can be taken to a formal hearing before a three-person Hearing
Committee chosen from the members of the Hearing Panel.
Fifteen members of the Hearing
Panel have been appointed both from
within and outside the University
Sexual Harassment
In general most sexual harassment
cases are handled by the Policy
Advisors. During the period from
April 1 to October 30,1989, the advisors answered several inquiries and
11 cases resulted. The majority of
these cases have been resolved at
the informal stages of our procedures. These cases can be summarized as follows: Complainant: female—9, male—2; undergraduate
student—5, graduate student—3,
faculty member—2, other/unknown—1. Respondent: female—2,
male 9; undergraduate student—1,
graduate student—2, staff member—
1, faculty member—7. The disposition of these cases is as follows:
informal resolution—9, union grievance—1, in process—1. These
cases could be classified as follows:
quid pro quo—2, poisoned environment—6, sexual assault—2.
The President and the Board of
Governors requested that the Committee review the "Red Menace" and
recommend action to the Board. The
Committee concluded that specific
articles in the "Red Menace" did
constitute sexual harassment and the
Committee recommended that the
University require organizations from
within the University to take full responsibility for ensuring that their
publications do not violate the
University's Policy on Sexual Harassment. This was approved by the
Board and they authorized the President to take remedial and/or discipli
nary action should violations of the
University Policy on Sexual Harassment occur in future publications.
Policy Issues
During the past year, the
President's Advisory Committee has
also reviewed several policy issues
and details of implementation, including record keeping, the right of a
third party to lodge a complaint, the
right to withdraw a complaint, the
rights of the respondent, the definition of sexual harassment, chair-person for the formal hearings, and
complaints laid in bad faith. As the
Committee gains experience, it is
expected that these issues will be
