History

The University can trace its origins back to the founding of an adult education school in 1798. The foundation stone of the original University College in Shakespeare Street was laid in 1877, accompanied by a speech by William Ewart Gladstone. The building was formally opened in 1881 by Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany. Outgrowing its city centre site, in 1928 the University College moved to a new campus to the south west of the city, a move made possible by the generosity of Jesse Boot, later Lord Trent. His gift of land has gradually been added to, creating the current University Park Campus. In 1948 the College received its Royal Charter, which gave it the title of "university" and the power to confer degrees. Previously, its students received their degrees from the University of London. William Ewart Gladstone (29 December 1809 – 19 May 1898) was a British Liberal Party statesman and Prime Minister (1868–1874, 1880–1885, 1886 and 1892–1894). ...

Over time the University has seen steady expansion. In 1947 the Midlands Agricultural and Dairy College at Sutton Bonington merged with the university, in the 1970s the university established a medical school. In 1999 a new Jubilee Campus was opened on the former site of the Raleigh factory, one mile away from the University Park campus. More recently, the university has expanded overseas, opening campuses in Malaysia and China. In September 2005 the King's Meadow campus opened. Built on the site of a former television studio the campus hosts the university's administrative departments and the Information Services department.

The logo used until 2001

The university has used several logos over the years. Initially, the university coat of arms with the cross, book and towers was used, and is still used in books owned by the university's various libraries. Later, the university adopted a simpler logo, in which a stylised version of Nottingham Castle was surrounded by the text 'The University of Nottingham'. In 2001 the university undertook a major rebranding exercise, including dropping this logo and replacing it with the current one (with the text to the right of the stylised castle).

Research

Much of the pioneering work on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was done at Nottingham, work for which Nottingham professor Sir Peter Mansfield received the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology in 2003. The University remains a strong centre for research into MRI and its 7 tesla scanner required 213 tonnes of iron cladding to prevent the surrounding area being affected by its powerful field.[12] The University has contributed to a number of other significant scientific advances. Professor Frederick Kipping, Professor of Chemistry (1897-1936), made the discovery of silicone polymers at the University (but failed to realise the commercial significance of what is now a multi-billion pound industry). Major developments in the in vitro culture of plants and micropropogation techniques were made by plant scientists at Nottingham, along with the first production of transgenic tomatoes by Professor Don Grierson in the 1980s. Other innovations at the university include cochlear implants for deaf children and the brace-for-impact position used in aircraft. Other facilities at the university include the UK's 109th most powerful supercomputer.[13] MRI redirects here. ...

The university is a key partner in the government's designation of Nottingham as a 'Science City'. 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. ...


Graduate school

The University's Graduate School was established in 1994, and operates a Graduate School Centre, which contains a social space, meeting rooms and a seminar room. It was originally housed in the Biology Building but moved to the Trent Building in 2006. The school offers a wide range of short courses aimed to help the development of post graduate students including courses in information technology and communication skills.[14] For the song by Girls Aloud see Biology (song) Biology studies the variety of life (clockwise from top-left) E. coli, tree fern, gazelle, Goliath beetle Biology (from Greek: Βιολογία - βίος, bio, life; and λόγος, logos, speech lit. ...

Controversies

From September 20 to December 7, 2004, the University was subject to an international academic boycott - 'greylisting' - after a breakdown in negotiations with the Association of University Teachers (AUT) on pay and conditions for academic staff. The AUT claimed that Nottingham failed to honour a commitment to follow a national agreement reached in March 2004. The University, however, claimed that its actions were in line with its undertakings in respect of the national agreement and that the University had sought to negotiate with the AUT from the start. The boycott led to disruption at Nottingham, with lectures scheduled to be given by lecturers from other universities being cancelled, participants withdrawing from conferences and, in the case of a Royal Geographical Society conference, the whole conference being moved to London. The boycott was suspended after agreement was reached on re-opening talks. The university was subsequently affected by a national pay dispute by the AUT in the summer of 2006, which led to the boycotting of some assessment. is the 263rd day of the year (264th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 341st day of the year (342nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The University also attracted controversy in 2001 when it accepted £3.8 m from British American Tobacco for the creation of a centre of corporate social responsibility. The donation caused Professor Richard Smith, Editor of the British Medical Journal to resign from his post as professor at the university, a 20 strong Cancer Research Team to move to London, and the Cancer Research Campaign to stop its £1.5 m fundraising campaign for the renovation of the University's cancer research facilities. The tobacco company funds were donated to establish an International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility at Nottingham University Business School. The school now ranks 1st in the UK, 4th in Europe, and 28th in the world in Masters in Business Administration (MBA) rankings compiled by the Aspen Institute - whose biennial table highlights full-time MBA programmes which integrate ethical, social and environmental issues. Despite predictions that medical research income and cancer studies would be affected adversely in the long-term at Nottingham, funding for cancer research has been strong in recent years, with significant public-private projects on Breast and Lung Cancer in the laboratory of Professor John Robertson, and a successful bid in 2008 to establish a UK centre for Tobacco Control Studies under the leadership of Professor John Britton.
