Unity out of Diversity. The Origins and Development of the University of Humberside.
The history of the University of Humberside (England) is traced and related to patterns of local, regional, and national development of higher education. The modern University of Humberside emerged from six separated colleges, the first originating in 1861 and the remaining five were founded before World War I. Two began as teacher training colleges and four of the colleges were responsible for further education. All were monotechnics (art and design, technical education, nautical education, and commerce). The historical review of the University of Humberside, now named the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside, is divided into the following periods: the origins of higher education in Hull; inter-war provision in Hull, later twentieth century provision, 1944-70; the reorganization of further and higher education in Hull, 1972-1976; the establishment of Hull College of Higher Education, 1976-82; Humberside College of Higher Education, 1983-80; and the emergence of Humberside University, 1989-1995. The broad sweep of educational transformation in England over the last century and a half has been characterized by a movement from voluntary to government provision of higher education. Local education authorities were in more influential positions in the early part of the 20th century. There has been a gradual movement from local to national control of advanced further education.
