How does the only female dean at UNL
feel about her new position?
"I like it," Hazel Anthony said with a
grin. 'The other deans are very, very nice to
Anthony, 53, has had ample opportunity
to work with UN L's male administrators. In
1970, she was appointed Associate Dean of
the College of Home Economics after nine
years in the UNL Department of Home
When former dean, Dr. Virginia Trotter,
was appointed vice-chancellor of Academic
Affairs, Anthony became interim dean. Her
new appointment to the college's top
administrative position was announced by
the Board of Regents during their December
In an interview last week, Anthony said
she did not think her position as a female
dean will be either an advantage or a
disadvantage. She said she became
accustomed to working with male
administrators during her appointments at
Michigan State University, Iowa State
University and when she was pursuing her
doctorate at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Lexington, Nebraska, native received
both her undergraduate and masters degrees
from the University of Nebraska in Home
When asked about her plans for the
College of Home Economics, the trim,
neatly dressed dean said she did not plan to
change anything, but she would listen to
suggestions from department heads and
Changes in administrative procedures will
not take place until the new Home
Economics Building is completed, Anthony
said. She added that building construction
should be completed sometime during the
1973-74 school year.
This semester, she will continue to teach
the Home Economics Senior Seminar which
she taught as associate dean because she
feels classroom contact is a means of keeping
in touch with students.
Compared to other schools' programs,
Anthony rates the UNL Home Economics
undergraduate program "right up among the
top in balance, quality of instruction and, ,
expertise of faculty. But we are not as strong
on the graduate level."
"This past month, 50 notices of
vacancies, from professorships to
administrative positions, have passed this
desk," she said. "Most say 'doctorates
preferred.' UN L's Home Economics program
"The need for doctorates in home
economics is increasing," she continued.
offers only one doctorate in food and
nutrition. , ,. ,
According to the new dean. Home
Economics is useful in todays society
because "our programs are cognizant of trie
social situation today."
Anthony named such areas as consumer
service, the handicapped homemaker,
nutrition, the social-psychology of clothing
and human development as those responding
to the needs of the times.
She also said that home economics
courses are of interest to students outside of
"Last year, we had over 700 registrations
from other colleges within UNL," Anthony
said. "And we had a higher percentage of
enrollment growth than any other UNL
She added that she works closely with the
deans from agriculture, arts and sciences and
teachers colleges because of interrelated
"I don't feel any hesitation in saying
this," she continued. "I think Home
Economics has gained a sense of respect at
While discussing the Equal Rights
Amendment, Anthony said she thinks "It
would be too bad if Nebraska rescinds what
they did because it (the amendment) will
eventually become the law of the land. I
think the proposal for reversal is based on
misinterpretation and misconception.".
"Delighted" is the word Anthony used to
describe her reaction to men entering Home
Economics. She said that males make a class
more interesting and realistic.
"I think men have every right to enter a
field dominated by women," Anthony
said. She said the breakdown of
male-female roles and the increase of male
Home Economics faculty members helps
make male students more comfortable.
The College of Home Economics now
employs three male faculty members and
three male graduate assistants.
Concerning the Home Economics
stereotype (dowdy old ladies in long skirts),
Anthony said, "I can remember what I used
to think, and I hope we've changed."
She added that she thought the
stereotvDe was fadina because of the
enthusiasm, professionalism and
attractiveness of young men and women in
She said the Home Economics graduate
has an obligation to her profession.
"We need dedicated young women,"
Anthony said. 'The Home Economics
graduate will be letting herself down if she
doesn't use and share her opportunities and
Fewer students are attending UNL this semester than last, if
enrollment estimates announced by University officials prove
correct. According to Gerald Bowker, UNL director of
academic services, just under 20,000 students are attending
classes this semester on the Lincoln campus.
That figure, he said, is close to an earlier projection for
second semester. First semester enrollment was 21,582,
Officials had projected a seven to eight per cent drop in
attendance second semester. Last year, second semester
enrollment dropped about six per cent. That figure was higher
than the rate during the previous two school years. The rate
for those years was about four per cent.
Bowker said the 20,000 figure is only a head count and
does not indicate how many credit hours students are taking.
