1444 Report ot the President



Report of the President.



Cincinnati, January i, 1902.
Oscar W. Kuhn,

Chairman of the Board of Directors of the University of Cincinnati:

Sir, — The President of the University has the honor to
submit the following report for the calendar year 1901.

It is encouragfing to note the growing recognition on the
part of the educational world at large, the Cincinnati public,
and particularly of the press, of the preeminent positioo
occupied by the University of Cincinnati in this large educa-
tional province, and of the great work done in its halls in
the preparation of young men and young women for tk
work of the world.

It is only within the last two years, and as a result d the
new life and enlarged functions of the University, that this
recognition has been fully accorded the institution. It is
only during the period just mentioned that all the possi-
bilities for educational advancement within the reach of the
University of Cincinnati have been utilized for the benefit
of those seeking education. At no time in the history rf
the institution has there been such a large educational return
for the money invested, and no university in the Middle
West offers so complete a course of high-grade universit}*
work at so small actual cost to the taxpayer and to the
student as does the University of Cincinnati. In most
universities in this region the cost is double that in the
University of Cincinnati at the present time.

University of Cincinnati



1445



The student body of the University of Cincinnati is very
largely made up of young men and young women of very
moderate means, and a large number of the students now in
attendance earn part of the money for their college course
while they are attending the University, and not a few earn
all the money which they spend on their university education
either during vacation times or by postponing for a year or
more the completion of their college course to engage in
teaching or other remunerative employment.

The following table of the annual cost to individual
students of the University for a university course will prove
of interest. The table is compiled from replies to a set of
questions sent out to the students of the Academic Depart-
ment who have been in attendance at least two years :

1446 Report of the President

The Catalogue issued this year was very much enlarged
and remodeled and for the first time has the appearance and
the arrangement of a University Catalogue. More space
was allotted to each department of the University for its
general statement, and the names of the teaching corps are
brought together in an alphabetical list.

The most marked change and improvement, however^ is
in the number and character of the courses offered in the
Academic and Engineering departments. The Engineer-
ing work was for the first time announced under the head
of four separate departments — namely, Civil, Mechanical,
Chemical, and Electrical Engineering — these four divisions
being the four departments of the Engineering School as at
present organized.

The Convocation addresses were delivered at the Quar-
terly Convocations in 1901 by Rev. George A. Thayer, D.D^
on "The Rise of a New Nation in the Nineteenth Century,"
on March 23d ; by Hon. James A. Green on "New Occasions
Teach New Duties," on June 25th ; by President Howard
Ayers on "The Relation of the Student to the Univereit}*;"
by Prof. C. H. Judd on "The Newly-established Department
of Education," on September 30th ; and by N. D. C. Hodges,

— In accordance- with the request of the American

CONVOCATION Association for the Advancement of Science,
WEEK the University of Cincinnati has undertaken

_to cooperate with other universities and many

of the learned societies of the United States in setting aside
the week in which the first of January falls, to be called
** Convocation Week," as a time for the meetings of learned
societies. This cooperative plan is now in operation, and is
very important for the promotion of the higher scholarship,
since it enables teachers and investigators in all branches
of learning to meet with their fellow- workers from all parts
of the country without interference with their other duties.
Beginning with the opening of the session 1900-1901,
many new courses were oflfered, for the first time in the
history of the University. The hours for conducting class

exercises were extended from the former hours, which were
8 . 30 A. M. to 1 . 30 p. M., to the hours 8 . 30 a. m. to 5 . 30
p, M., thus making an addition of four fifths (or eighty per
cent) of the time formerly used, to the working hours of the
University.

Instead of having the University open on only five days
of the week, as was the custom formerl}^, the University
has since that date been open to the student public on Satur-
day as well, thus adding twenty per cent weekly to the
amount of time formerly occupied by the exercises of the
University.

In keeping with this policy, to have the facilities of the
University accessible to the student public at all seasonable
times, a Summer School was instituted in the summer of
1900 and ran for a term of six weeks. This was the first
Summer School ever held in the University and made another
large addition, equal to over sixteen per cent, to the amount
of time during which the University was formerly open to
the public.



Recent years have brought increased demands

work do not close their business for three months of the
year. Why should a university? Simply from the force of a
