History

Keele University was established in 1949 as the University College of North Staffordshire, at the initiative of A. D. Lindsay, then Master of Balliol College, Oxford. Lindsay was a strong advocate of working-class adult education,[6] who had first suggested a "people's university" in an address to the North Staffordshire Workers' Educational Association in 1925.[7] Year 1949 (MCMXLIX) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

On 13th March 1946, Lindsay wrote to Sir Walter Moberly, chair of the University Grants Committee (UGC), suggesting the establishment of a college “on new lines”.[8] Established practice was for new colleges to be launched without degree-awarding powers, instead taking external degrees of the University of London. Crucially, Lindsay wanted to “get rid of the London external degree”, instead forming a college with the authority from the start to set its own syllabus, perhaps acting under the sponsorship of an established university. Lindsay wrote also to the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford, tentatively requesting just such sponsorship.[8] Sir Walter Hamilton Moberly GBE KCB Kt DSO (b. ...

An exploratory committee was established by Stoke-on-Trent City Council, chaired by Lindsay and supported by Alderman Thomas Horwood, Vicar of Etruria and leader of the Labour group on the City Council.[9] Having secured public funding from the UGC in January 1948,[10] the Committee acquired Keele Hall, a stately home on the outskirts of Newcastle-under-Lyme, from its owner, Ralph Sneyd.[11] The Hall, ancestral residence of the Sneyd family, had previously been requisitioned by the War Office for military use during World War II, and was supplied with the bulk of the Sneyd estate and a number of prefabricated structures erected by the Army, for the sum of £31,000.[11] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 450 × 600 pixel Image in higher resolution (960 × 1280 pixel, file size: 436 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File links The following pages on the English Wikipedia link to this file (pages on other projects are not listed): Keele University ...

Growing steadily, the University College was promoted to university status in 1962,[12] receiving a new Royal Charter in January of that year,[13] and adopting the name The University of Keele. This remains the official name, although Keele University is now the name used by the University itself. In achieving University status, Keele became the second of the New Universities (after Sussex, Royal Charter 1961). University College can refer to several institutions: in Canada University College, University of Toronto University College of the North, The Pas, Manitoba University College of the Cariboo, Kamloops, British Columbia, merged with British Columbia Open University and renamed Thompson Rivers University Kings University College (Edmonton), Alberta in England University...

Since then, student numbers have swelled considerably. The University estimates that there are now upwards of 5,600 full-time students at Keele; 1,300 part-time students; and around 4,000 participants on professional and short courses.[14] The University is committed to further growth,[15] with the stated objective of increasing its numbers to 10,000 full-time students.[14]

Reputation and academic organisation

The University's distinctive profile[16] reflects the aims of its founders: breadth of study and community atmosphere.[17]


Breadth of study was guaranteed by the "pioneering"[18] four-year dual-honours degree programmes initially offered by Keele. The University's curriculum required every student to study two "principal" subjects to honours level, as well as further "subsidiary" subjects, with an additional requirement that students should study at least one subject from each of the subject groupings of Arts, Sciences and Social Sciences.[19] The cross-disciplinary requirement was reinforced by the Foundation Year, an innovation which meant that for the first year of the four-year programmes, all students would study a common course of interdisciplinary "foundation studies". In the words of the first UCNS Prospectus, the programme offered: A bachelors degree is usually an undergraduate academic degree awarded for a course or major that generally lasts for three, four, or in some cases and countries, five or six years. ... Interdisciplinarity is the act of drawing from two or more academic disciplines and integrating their insights to work together in pursuit of a common goal. ...

"...a broad education based upon an understanding of the heritage of civilisation, movements and conditions, and of the nature, methods and influence of the experimental sciences"[20]

Standard three-year degrees were introduced in 1973[21] and the number of students following the Foundation Year course have steadily dwindled since. The Foundation Year has never quite been formally discontinued, however, and remains an option for prospective students who qualify for entry into Higher Education, but lack subject-specific qualifications for specific degree programmes.[22] By contrast, the Dual Honours system at Keele remains distinctive and popular, with almost 90 per cent of current undergraduates reading dual honours.[23] The University of Cambridge is an institute of higher learning. ...


As an experimental community, Keele was initially founded as a "wholly residential"[17] institution. Of the initial intake of 159 students in October 1950, 149 were resident on campus,[24] and it was required of the first professors appointed that they should also be in residence.[25] With the expansion of the University, total residency has long since been abandoned, but the proportion of students and staff resident on campus remains above average: 70 per cent of full-time students[14] and "a significant proportion of staff"[26] currently live in campus residences.


The University also has a reputation for political activism, especially left-wing radicalism,[27] having been dubbed, in its early years, a "School for Socialists"[28] and "The Kremlin on the Hill".[29] Left wing redirects here. ...

An interdepartmental submission to the Social Policy and Administration panel was also rated 5. The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) is an exercise undertaken every 5 years on behalf of the four UK higher education funding councils (HEFCE, SHEFC, HEFCW, DELNI) to evaluate the quality of research undertaken by British higher education institutions. ...


Research in psychology, biology, Russian, music, business and management studies and community-based clinical subjects was also highly rated in the RAE 2001.[41]

2007 Janet Finch pay rise controversy

Early in 2007 it was announced that the Keele University Vice-Chancellor, Janet Finch, had received a pay rise of 31.7 per cent in the previous year. This took her annual salary to £212,000 which is greater than the salaries paid to the Vice-Chancellors of universities such as Cambridge and Warwick. [42] Janet Finch Janet Finch is a British sociologist. ... The University of Cambridge (often Cambridge University), located in Cambridge, England, is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and has a reputation as one of the most prestigious universities in the world. ... The University of Warwick is a British campus university located on the outskirts of Coventry, West Midlands, England and is regarded as one of the countrys leading universities. ...


The salary increase was ten times the pay rise given to lecturers in the same year which drew concern from lecturers' unions that staff workloads were not being accurately reflected by pay increases.


Keele University defended the pay rise citing recently successful university expansion projects. However, critics point out that despite the success of recent expansions, Keele University has suffered the fourth biggest drop in student applications of all UK universities. Students at the university have also claimed that Finch's 'success' is down to ruthless cutbacks rather than careful investment. [43]


Finch's pay will remain frozen until 2009.


UCU Greylisting Campaign

In December 2007 Keele University's council approved a plan to close most of the School of Economic and Management Studies' current programmes in management, economics and industrial relations and human resource management, placing 38 of the 67 academic staff in the school at risk of redundancy. Keele management have informed staff that they refuse to enter into negotiations over the proposed redundancies and that they intend to make a 25% deduction from the pay of University and College Union members taking industrial action against the staff cuts. The University and College Union (UCU) is a UK trade union formed from the 2006 merger of the Association of University Teachers (AUT) and the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education (NATFHE). ...


Members of UCU and other trade unions, labour movement organisations, and the international academic community are being asked to support the staff threatened with redundancy by joining the campaign to “greylist” Keele University. The term greylisting specifically means a voluntary boycott of academic and other university activities where appropriate at Keele.


Keele UCU members are seeking the following from management:


• Engage in meaningful negotiations with the branch and regional officials • Remove the threat of pay deductions relating to the ongoing ASOS • Commence the engagement of academic managers with teaching groups in discussion about future teaching programmes • Agree an acceptable process for voluntary severance - including an extension to the time period of the current scheme


Colleagues are asked to show their support for Keele UCU in particular in the following ways with effect from Friday 13 June, 2008:


• Non attendance, speaking at or organising academic or other conferences at Keele • Do not apply for jobs at Keele • Do not give lectures at Keele • Do not accept positions as Visiting professors or researchers at Keele • Do not write for any academic journal which is edited from Keele • Do not take up new contracts as external examiners for taught courses


Sport

Keele has a tradition of participation in many different sports, ranging from rugby to lacrosse, to dodgeball. Sports teams and issues raised are managed by the Athletic Union with the University having very little involvement with the on-goings of sport at the university. The Leisure Centre is one of the largest dry leisure complexes in Staffordshire.[44] The Centre boasts two national standard sports halls, a single court gymnasium, a fitness centre, dance studio and climbing wall. Outside there is an all weather floodlit Astroturf pitch, tennis courts and extensive playing fields. It is also the first University Centre in the UK to offer a full "Kinesis" gym facility.[45] Look up rugby in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... For other uses, see Lacrosse (disambiguation). ...

Interesting facts and trivia

The University Library.
The University Library.
  • In 1998 and 1999 there was some controversy over the decision by University authorities to sell the Turner Collection, a valuable collection of mathematical printed books including some which had belonged to Isaac Newton, in order to fund major improvements to the University Library. The collection also included first printed editions of Euclid in most of the major European languages. Senior University officials authorised the sale of the collection to a private buyer, with no guarantee that it would remain intact or within the UK. Although legally permissible, the sale was unpopular among the academic community and the controversy was fuelled by prolonged negative press coverage suggesting that the £1m sale price was too low and that the collection was certain to be broken up.
  • The cochlear implant was developed in the Department of Communication and Neuroscience at Keele.
  • Keele University was the subject of a 1980s BBC documentary on student debt entitled A Nightmare on Keele Hill. This name was used in 1991 to 1993 by the Students Union Entertainment Committee as the name for the Friday night disco (previously called the "Mega").
  • In the early 1980s Keele attracted the attention of the national press and television news when some students founded a 'cuddling society' and a 'mass cuddle' was filmed in the car park outside the students union.
  • Keele University is built over the mine workings of Silverdale colliery.
  • Barnes Hall has no M block (it has A-L and N-X). This coupled with the large clear area adjacent to L block and the fact that the university is built over mine shafts led to an urban legend that the block sank into the ground due to a collapse of a mine tunnel. This is only partially true - the block became unsafe due to subsidence and was demolished.
  • Keele was the first UK University to sell the rental income from its student accommodation to a private company for a limited time in order to raise short-term funds.
  • The postmodern sculpture situated outside Keele's Library was stolen by a visiting sports team only to be later retrieved and securely fitted. In 2005 the same statue was damaged in protest of the University's policy of fining regulations against its undergraduate students.
  • In 2007, Keele University students were responsible for getting Keele featured as a location on the UK 'Here and Now' version of the traditional board game Monopoly. People in the UK had an opportunity to vote for which places should make the board, and Keele was the highest "wild-card" location which made it on. It even finished higher on the board than London, and takes the place of "Fleet Street" in the game [47].
  • In 2007, Keele students won a competition hosted by O2 via facebook called "The battle for the UK's favourite university", scoring over 172000 points by uploading photos, videos and making wall posts on the group. The prize for winning the comptetion was a party at their students union, hosted by O2.
  • In episode 20 The Almighty Underwater Chicken of the children's program Roger and the Rottentrolls the narrator imagines what Yockenthwaite (the stupidest of the Rottentrolls) would have thought had he been the cleverest of the Rottentrolls, and he is shown playing for Keele University on University Challenge.
