GENERAL INFORMATION

ORGANIZATION

The University of California is an integral part of the public educational system of the State. As such it completes the work begun in the public schools. Through aid from the State and the United States, and by private gifts, it furnishes facilities for instruction in literature and in science, and in the professions of art, law, medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy. In the colleges of Letters and Science, Commerce, Agriculture, Mechanics, Mining, Civil Engineering, and Chemistry these privileges are offered without charge for tuition to all residents of California who are qualified for admission. Non-residents of California are charged a tuition fee of ten dollars each half-year. In the professional colleges, except that of law, tuition fees are charged. The instruction in all the colleges is open to all qualified persons, without distinction of sex. The Constitution of the State provides for the perpetuation of the University, with all its departments.

ADMINISTRATION

The government of the University of California is entrusted to a corporation styled THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, consisting of the Governor, the Lieutenant-Governor, the Speaker of the Assembly, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, the President of the State Board of Agriculture, the President of the Mechanics’ Institute of San Francisco, and the President of the University, as members ex officio, and sixteen other regents appointed by the Governor and approved by the Senate. To this corporation the State has committed the administration of the University, including management of the finances, care of the property, appointment of teachers, and determination of the internal organization in all particulars not fixed by law.

The instruction and government of the students are entrusted to the FACULTIES OF THE SEVERAL COLLEGES and to the ACADEMIC SENATE.

The Faculty of each college consists of the President of the University and those professors and instructors, and only those, whose departments are represented in it by required or elective studies.

The Academic Senate consists of the members of the Faculties and the instructors of the University, the President and professors alone having the right to vote in its transactions. It holds regular meetings twice a year, and is created for the purpose of conducting the general administration of the University, memorializing the Regents, regulating in the first instance the general and special courses of instruction, and red ing and determining all als from acts of discipline enforced by the Faculty of any college; and it exercises such other powers as the regents may confer upon it.

In all matters not expressly delegated to the Senate or to the several Faculties, the Regents govern, either directly or through the President or Secretary.

SITE AND CLIMATE OF BERKELEY

The principal seat of the University is at Berkeley, a city of about 60,000 inhabitants, on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay directly opposite the Golden Gate. It is thirty-five minutes' ride by train and ferry from San Francisco, and twenty-five minutes' ride by electric car from the business center of Oakland. The site of the University comprises about five hundred and thirty acres, rising at first in gentle and then in bolder slopes from a height of about two hundred feet above the sea level to one of about thirteen hundred feet. It has a superb outlook over the bay and city of San Francisco, the neighboring plains and mountains, the ocean, and the Golden Gate.

Berkeley is a healthful locality; the slope of the town site makes perfect drainage possible.

The climate of Berkeley is one of great uniformity and is exceptionally well suited for university work throughout the year. The summers are cool, making it possible to begin the academic year earlier than in Eastern universities, and thus divide it at the Christmas holidays into two equal half-years. Commencement is usually held about the middle of May. The calendar for 1918-19 was adopted as an emergency measure to meet conditions caused by the war.

Extremes of heat and cold are unknown. The average temperatures are about 59 degrees in summer and 48 degrees in winter. Temperatures as high as 85 degrees are of infrequent occurrence and never last more than a few hours. Very low temperatures do not occur; within the last twenty-five years 24.9 degrees was the lowest temperature recorded at the University.

The marked rainy season begins in November and continues through March; although rains may occur in all months except July and August. In the winter, rain falls on three or four days in succession, after which a week or more of fine weather follows. On the average, even in winter, less than a third of the whole number of days are rainy. The annual rainfall at Berkeley is about twenty-seven inches.
