RELATIONS OF THE UNIVERSITY WITH SECONDARY
The University desires to promote such correlation of primary, secondary, and collegiate work that the utmost economy of educational effort may be attained. With this end in view, the University attempts to arrange for systematic and intimate relations with preparatory schools. The types of relationship possible vary with the circumstances of institutions. In general, they may be classed under the two terms, affiliation and co-operation. The explanations which follow show the general features of the two types of relation.
I. THE AFFILIATED RELATION Three forms of affiliation are possible:
1. Organic membership in the University. — The affiliated institution in this relation is treated as a department of the University. It has its own Dean and Faculty, and is governed by regulations prescribed by the competent University authorities.
2. Semi-organic union with the University.- A stipulated number of representatives of the University are members of the Board of Trustees of the institution affiliated. Under this arrangement the University assumes no financial responsibility, but through its representatives the University shares in the administration of the affiliated institution.
3. Alliance between the University and completely independent institutions.-Under the terms of the alliance, the trustees of the affiliated institutions permit administration of the educational policy by the faculty in co-operation with the faculty of the University, subject to restrictions adopted by the trustees of both institutions in the terms of agreement.
For a list of schools at present in affiliation with the University, see p. 109 of this Register.
II. THE CO-OPERATIVE RELATION The administration of the relation of co-operation is explained in the following paragraphs:
1. The University will undertake to visit a limited number of schools with a view to determining whether such schools may have a place its list of approved schools. The formal approval will be granted by the Board of Admissions, upon a joint recommendation of two visiting officers of the University. In the case of a school already approved by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, one visit by an officer of the University is sufficient.
2. Graduates of schools thus approved are admitted to the University upon credentials signed by the principal and the instructors in the various subjects in which credit for admission is sought.
3. The character of the work of students so admitted to the University is taken as a further test of the work of the preparatory school, and the records of the first year's work of his new students in college are sent to each principal
4. One scholarship is awarded each year to each of the high schools of Chicago; twenty-five scholarships have been provided for distribution among co-operating schools outside of Chicago, to be assigned to candidates recommended by their principals. These are strictly honor scholarships, and are awarded only to students who are able to enter the University without condition, and upon credentials showing that the student has maintained a high standard of scholarship in his preparatory course. Each of these scholarships secures to the student tuition for one year (three quarters) at the University. See p. 124, of this Register.
5. Each year, early in November, there is held at the University a joint conference of all affiliated and co-operating schools, in which all principals and teachers participate. This conference is in part of a general character, and in part departmental.
6. (a) At the same date with the Conference an oratorical contest occurs at the University of Chicago. Each co-operating school may send to this contest one boy and one girl. The successful contestants are awarded a scholarship for one year in the University of Chicago. (b) Seniors in cooperating secondary schools may enter competitive honor examinations in certain subjects held at the same date with the Conference referred to in paragraph six. The successful contestants are entitled to a scholarship in the University for one year. (c) The trustees of the University have granted to teachers in co-operating secondary schools the privilege of pursuing studies at the University during the Summer Quarter at half the usual tuition rates.
7. It is understood that each student admitted upon certificate will pay an inspection fee of $5 upon matriculation. This fee is distinct from the matriculation fee of $5.
For a list of schools accepted by the Board of University Relations to the relation of co-operation, see pp. 109-111 of this Register.
Officially the University provides for positive and constructive religious education on the conviction that it is a normal part of education in general, and an element in complete living. Instruction is given on Sunday in the Bible by chosen specialists, and credit is given for this classwork. On Sunday morning the University Preacher conducts a public service in the Leon Mandel Assembly Hall. Chapel Assemblies are held on Monday for the men of the Junior Colleges, on Tuesday for the Senior Colleges (men and women), on Wednesday for the Divinity School, and on Thursday for the women of the Junior Colleges. Attendance on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday is required.
The Board of the Christian Union, composed of representatives of the Faculties, the Schools and Colleges, the University Settlement, and the religious organizations of the University, meets monthly to consider matters affecting the religious life of the University. The University Preachers are nominated by this Board.
The Chaplain is specially charged with assisting all the agencies of spiritual life, performs such of the duties of pastor as may be required, holds himself ready for consultations with students, and upon occasion acts as University Preacher.
