Superintendent of Public Instruction.

State of California, ' )
County of Sacramento. J

I, William T. Welcker, Superintendent of Public Instruction, do swear that the above is a
true statement of the expenditures of the appropriations for the office of Superintendent of
Public Instruction of the State of California, except salaries, from January 8, 1883, to
June 30, 1884.

Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Subscribed and sworn to before me, this twenty-second day of September, 1884.

Deputy Clerk uf Supreme Court.






His Excellency the Governor of the State.






To his Excellency George Stoneman, Governor of the State of California:

In accordance with, the requirement of Section 1432 of the Political
Code, I have the honor of herewith submitting, in behalf of the Board
of Regents of the University of California, the following biennial
report upon the University for the academic years 1882-83 and 1883-
84, namely: from August 1, 1882, to August 1, 1884.

I have included in the report such statistics of the present year,
and of previous years, as seemed to me likely to throw light upon the
present condition and prospects of the University.


The Board of Regents has organized the following named colleges
and regular courses leading to a degree: At Berkeley, a College of
Letters, a College of Agriculture, a College of Mechanics, a College of
Mining, a College of Civil Engineering, a College of Chemistry, a
Literary Course, and a Course in Letters and Political Science; in
San Francisco, a College of Law, a College of Medicine, a College of
Dentistry, and a College of Pharmacy. Besides these colleges and
regular courses, the organic Act creating the University declares that
" each college shall have a partial course for those who may not desire
to pursue a full course therein; and any resident of California, of
the age of fourteen years or upwards, of approved moral character,
shall have the right to enter himself in the University as a student
at large, and receive tuition in any branch or branches of instruction,
at the time when the same are given in their regular course, on such
terms as the Board of Regents may prescribe."

Faculties, and other Officers of histruction.

The organic Act defines the Faculty of a college to be " the President
and resident professors of the same."'

Li 1882-83 the Faculties of the colleges at Berkeley consisted of the
President and eleven resident professors. There were connected with
these Faculties three honorary professors, thirteen instructors, one
assistant instructor, two lecturers, one assistant in chemistry, and one
assistant in agricultural chemistry.

The Faculty of the Hastings College of the Law consisted of the
President and three professors.

The Faculty of the Toland College of Medicine consisted of the
President and eleven professors. There were connected with this
Faculty one lecturer, and one demonstrator and assistant lecturer.

The Faculty of the College of Dentistry consisted of the President
and seven professors. There were connected with this Faculty four
demonstrators and nine clinical instructors.

The Faculty of the College of Pharmacy consisted of the President
and four professors.

In 1883-84 the Faculties of the colleges at Berkeley consisted of the
President and fourteen resident professors. There were connected
with these Faculties three honorary professors, twelve instructors, one
assistant instructor, one temporary instructor, two lecturers, one
assistant in chemistry, one assistant in agricultural chemistry, and
one superintendent of the machine shop.

The Faculty of the Hastings College of the Law consisted of the
President, two professors, and the Dean.

The Faculty of the Toland College of Medicine consisted of the
President and thirteen professors.

The Faculty of the College of Dentistry consisted of the President
and seven professors. There were connected with this Faculty three
demonstrators, two assistant demonstrators, and thirteen clinical

The Faculty of the College of Pharmacy consisted of the President
and four professors.

Academic Senate.

The organic Act defines the Academic Senate to be " all the Facul-
ties and instructors of the University." It further says of the
Academic Senate that "every person engaged in instruction in the
University, whether resident professors, non-resident professors, teach-
ers, or instructors, shall have permission to participate in its discus-
sions; but the right of voting shall be confined to the President and
the resident and non-resident professors."

In 1882-83 the Academic Senate consisted of the President of the
University, thirty-nine professors, twenty-two instructors, two assist-
ant instructors, three lecturers, and five demonstrators.

In 1883-84 it consisted of the President, thirty-nine professors, the
Dean of the Hastings College of the Law, twenty-five instructors, one
assistant instructor, one temporary instructor, two lecturers, three
demonstrators, and two assistant demonstrators.

There appear to be serious incongruities in the constitution of the
Faculties and the Academic Senate. The most striking, perhaps, is
the provision that admits an instructor to a seat with the Academic
Senate and gives him a voice in its discussions, but does not accord
him either a seat or a voice in the Faculty of the college in which he
gives instruction. He is, in other words, given a seat and a hearing
with the body to which he can be of little or no service, and deprived
of a seat and a voice with the body with which he is associated in all
his duties, and to which the information and the counsel that he could
give would often be of the greatest value.

There are other incongruities more serious in their consequences,
one of which is so marked as to deserve special attention.

It may be stated as a matter of history that for several years there
were no professional colleges connected with the University, and the
Faculties at Berkeley, therefore, constituted the Academic Senate.
The duties they had long performed related entirely to the colleges
at Berkeley, and as the addition of the afUliated colleges introduced
no new questions into their deliberations, they still continued by
common consent in the exercise of their accustomed powers. Indeed,
these powers were so fitting, and so exactly coincided with the powers
assigned to the Academic Senate, that it can hardly be doubted that

it was the intention of the framer of the Act simply to define the
body composed of the joint Faculties at Berkeley. But whatever may
have been his intention, the terms of the Act seem to include the
Faculties of the affiliated colleges as members of the Senate, and
later the Board of Regents so ruled.
The powers of the Academic Senate are defined as follows:

The Senate must conduct the general administration of the University, regulate the general
and special courses of instruction, receive and determine all appeals from acts of discipline
enforced by the Faculty of any college, and exercise such other powers as the Board of Regents
may confer upon it.

A single illustration will make plain the impropriety of lodging
some of the powers here enumerated with the joint Faculties of the
Colleges of Letters and of Science at Berkeley, and of Law, Medicine,
Dentistry, and Pharmacy in San Francisco. It is, for example, the
duty of the Senate to regulate the general and special courses of

This duty imposes upon the Faculties of the undergraduate col-
leges at Berkeley the power to regulate, or to have a voice in regulat-
ing, the courses of instruction in the Colleges of Law, Medicine,
Dentistry, and Pharmacy, and upon the Faculties of the Colleges of
Law, Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy the power to regulate or to
take part in regulating the courses of instruction in the Colleges of
Agriculture, Mechanics, Mining, Civil Engineering, Chemistry, and
Letters, and in the Literary Course and the course in Letters and
Political Science.

The propriety, on the other hand, of placing in the hands of the
joint Faculties at Berkeley the power to regulate their several courses
of study will be plain, if it be borne in mind that there are six under-
graduate colleges and two undergraduate courses at Berkeley, and
that most of the professors and instructors have duties in all, or in
almost all, of them. It cannot, for example, be left to the College of
Letters to call for two hours of Mathematics, to the College of Agri-
culture to call for three, to the College of Chemistry to call for four,
or any other number, and to the remaining colleges and courses to
call for such hours as the several Faculties would be glad to have, for
it would be impossible for the department of Mathematics to meet
these various demands. So of the other departments. If each col-
lege or course had a distinct corps of teachers, so that each could be
independent of everj' other, instead of their being mutually inter-
dependent as they are, the entire aspect of the case would be different.

The Faculties of these several colleges and courses must then
meet as one body, and so coordinate and distribute the work that
each college or course shall receive a due portion of the time that
each professor or department can give.

And what has been said of the community of interest in the matter
of adjusting the work of the several departments of instruction at
Berkeley may also be said of many other matters, and yet the terms
of the organic Act are such that the Board of Regents has felt com-
pelled to decide that the Faculties at Berkeley cannot act as a joint
body in these and other matters affecting in common and exclusively
their own colleges. This unforeseen outcome has entailed extreme
embarrassment upon the Faculties at Berkeley. To do much of the
work that has heretofore been done in a simple and efficient way by
a single meeting of the joint Faculties, it is now necessary, in order

to secure the uniformity of action that is absolutely essential to the
harmonious working of interdependent colleges, to call the joint
Faculties together for deliberation and to formulate a desirable line
of conduct; and then to submit the result of these deliberations to
the six several Faculties for their approval.

Many of the duties placed upon the Academic Senate are important
duties, certainly, but they are not such as belong to an Academic
Senate. That body has, or should have, the greater and more impor-
tant function of determining matters of general university policy; of
proposing measures which, while strengthening each individual de-
partment, shall yet contribute to the strengthening and building up of
the University as a whole. It is not that there are likely to be antag-
