CAPITAL FOR THE UNIVERSITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

CAPITAL FOR THE UNIVERSITY A decision on the future of the College has been made and thus we have reached both an end and a beginning — an end to the waiting and the wondering, to the discussion of pros and cons, and a beginning of progress. , . Progress cannot be made without plans, and in the - ? planning for our future it is not only the College Council and Administration which is concerned, but evervone who has any connexion with the College. And in this planning the students must play an important part. The accumulated stock with which the new University es tablishes itself inV business will consist principally of the experience- of its members; .your thoughts , are, part of its capital. The Students' Association, through its executive , body, the S.R.C., has 'from time to time given consider able thought to. planning for the future, but, understand ably, tangible results have been few. Now that we know where we are going, it is time for the thoughts of stud ents to take clear ...

A Letter to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

A Letter to the Editor Dear Ma'am, Your editorial, 'The College in I960' was around the mark, but time and the A.N.U. wait for no good woman and now it seems that the College must 'go it alone.' ( [The editorial referred to is Maris King's criticism 'of the continued determent ot a deci sion on the future status of the College in 'Woroni' 1956/9 of July 24.] Undoubtedly, as you say, the attracting and holding of good staff is part of the answer to a successful future of the College. That will be a matter for our Council and the .Government — comparable pay and conditions to that in other- Australian Uni versities and that sort of thing. Students* cannot be indifferent to such questions but: what about some of the issues that get just as near home from other angles? You mention buildings. Yes! They help a University's pres tige at least two ways — P attract students and give the place a worthwhile University atmos phere. And besides, what with the Canberra climate . . ! But what stud...

THE COLLEGE AND THE FUTURE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

THE COLLEGE AND THE FUTURE Of- approximately 350 stud ents . enrolled at the Canberra University „ College in degree or diploma courses, the great maj ority are drawn from; Canberra and Queanbeyan, and scarcely any of our full-time students are riot residents of these places. Thus we have a population of 40,000 supporting a University population of 350. Assuming that this ratio will not change, the University will have, when Canberra's . population reaches its projected ' 100,000, a student population of 900 to 1000. An unusually large proportion .even at this enlarged student popu lation will, however, ' be part timers. ; The chief purpose behind the education for public servants and 1932 was to provide, tertiary education for public servants the children of public servants, many of whom could be expec ted to purs'ue careers in . the Public Service. It is natural,, then, that the courses offered by the College should be those most useful to the public ser vice — Arts, Law and Com m...

DEMOCRACY IN THE UNIVERSITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

DEMOCRACY IN THE UNIVERSITY In the English-speaking world there are two University sys ems — the British and the Ameri ???'? can — which differ in certain fun damental respects. As a decision must very soon be made on the form to be taken by the new University ? of Canberra, we ' should be balancing the. merits of these systems. ine oasic oojective or tne ' American University system may be expressed as higher education , for all ; for the British Univer sity system, this ; basic objective v may. be expressed 'as higher edu cation only for those possessing : ^:ertain relatively exacting quali fications and so ;most capable of benefiting from it. ' There can be no, doubt which of these two is more in line with democratic philosophy. The American University sys tem has been severely criticised —?often by people who have had no personal experience of it — on the grounds that it is intel lectually lowbrow, that it is ex clusively sports-minded, or that its standards are too low.

CULTURE AND PERSONALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

CULTURE AND PERSONALITIES When you go around asking people what they think is or should be the function of a Uni versity, it is only natural that you should be given many lif erent answers^ But there is one point on which quasi-urianimity is reached — that is that a ' Uni versity is an institution where' you go to get 'Culture,' and that the Degree it grants to its students on completion of their course' is supposed to avouch , the acquisition of the same, When you try to get some more specific meaning into or out of 'Culture' with a big C, con.-. . fusion is more often 4 than not the result. „?????, . , The proceeding, however, seems to provide a justification for our giving of culture the . following operational definition — 'Culture is what you have when you have completed a University degree.' In what follows' I shall limit .myself to consideration of the. Fatuity of Arts — indeed it is claimed by all in the know that this faculty is, culturally speaking, the heart of a Univer s...

THE PRINCIPAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

THE PRINCIPAL Readers of 'Woroni' probably know the present position concerning the possibility of incorporation of the 'College in the Australian National University. They will' be aware that the National University Act of 1946 ? made ' provision for * the incorporation of the College,' but imposed no obligation upon the University to take such a step. On the other hand, the growth of the College in the post-war years has been such as to make it clear that the College is out-growing it's present status as a university college associated with the Uni versity of Melbourne. The recent transformation of the New Engiand University College into the University of New England has naturally promoted the thought that the time should be ripe for the College to achieve a similar status. ... The fact, however- that the National University Act made provision for incorporation, and also conf erred :? upon the National; University the power to establish undergraduate courses, made it desirable to ...

This issue hopefully salutes the new UNIVERSITY OF CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

This issue hopefully salutes the new UNIVERSITY OF CANBERRA The establishment of the University of Canberra was foreshadowed recently by the following statement issued by the Council of the Canberra University College. Student opinion at the College strongly favours the achievement of University status for the College as early as possible. The .Canberra University. Col lege was established in 1929 by i an Ordinance of the Australian Capital Territory, pending the ? establishment of a teaching uni- 1 versity in Canberra. ' Arrange ments were then made with' the University of Melbourne for College, students to take the examinations'; and , be admitted to the degrees of the University of Melbo'urne. This association; has continued up to the present time. . However, in 1946, the Act was passed for the establishment of the. Australian National Univer sity; d:he Act gave the University the power, to incorporate the I Canberra University College. The University and the Col lege have, over ...

EDITORIAL NOW OR NEVER? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 April 1957

EDITORIAL A/o W OH AA~ Vfi* R ''? The College Council is, WORONI has heard from separate sources, considering some form of tighter control of the Students ! Representative Council. This could 'blow up into an academic freedom issue that will, for us at. least, leave Queensland in the shade. In the nE- ture of the case we have no full details, Tout it sounds as though Council might want some form of censorship for Revue and a hand in the control of Student Association funds, together with closer oversight of full-timers f ways of spending their time. It will toe understood that in commenting on these proposals, WORONI is likely to go off half -6ocked, but in our e:'\3rience any sort of opposition before a decision is worth more than the most firmly-founded counter-case presented too late. Revue trod on a lot of toes this year — unfortun ately twenty of theik 'belonged to Council members... But Revue also attracted a great many people to the College, amused them (or so they thought) g...
