Report of a Survey of the University of Arizona. Bulletin, 1922, No. 36
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
On February 4, 1922, a request came from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction of Arizona, The Hon. Elsie Toles, to the Commissioner of Education asking that the Bureau of Education make a survey of the University of Arizona. The invitation was accepted by the Commissioner of Education, who designated E. Parke, R. Kilbe, president of the Municipal University of Akron, and Mr. L.E. Blauch, specialist in charge of land-grant college statistics of the Bureau of Education, as a committee to conduct the survey with the advice of Dr. George F. Zook, specialist in higher education of the Bureau of Education. The survey committee spent from February 20 to March 8 at the university. Data were obtained through personal investigation, questionnaires, and extended conferences with various officers of the university. A preliminary report of its findings was made by the survey committee to the board of regents on March 8. The extensive data collected were then carefully studied, and the report was written. The method of study was to apply the technique which the Bureau of Education had developed in earlier surveys, with such modifications as the circumstances demanded and as seemed wise. The committee has tried to analyze the conditions and methods in use in the light of the best practice followed by standard institutions of higher learning. This report was read and criticized by Dr. William T. Bawden, assistant to the Commissioner of Education, and by Dr. George F. Zook. The final report is submitted herewith. Appended are: (1) Plan of administration approved by the board of regents; (2) Proposed budget classification of expenditures; (3) Training, experience and publications of administrative officers; (4) Training, experience, and publications of teaching faculty; (5) Teaching load of faculty; (6) Class enrollments by departments (1921-22); and (7) Enrollments (1912-13, 1921-22).
