Established by the Regents of the University

[ocr errors]

1 The University Convocation of the State of New York shall be held annually at the capitol in Albany on the first Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after July 4.

2 Its object shall be, by addresses, papers, discussions and resolutions to ascertain and formulate educational opinion; to make such recommendations as experience may suggest; and by the cooperation of all the institutions of the University to advance the cause of academic and higher education.

3 The membership of the convocation shall embrace:

a The regents and all officers of any department of the University.

. All trustees, instructors and other officers, in colleges, normal schools, academies, high schools and other institutions of the University.

The officers of the New York State Teachers Association. d Such others as may be elected by the regents or by the Convocation council.

4 The officers of the University shall be the permanent officers of the convocation.

5 Each convocation shall choose a council of five to act as its representative during the year, and arrange for and conduct the business of the next annual meeting. The secretaries of the University shall be ex officio members and secretaries of this council.

6 The chancellor shall annually appoint a necrology committee to collect notices and report to the next convocation on members or other prominent educators deceased during the year.

7 The proceedings of the convocation, with the papers and discussions, shall be included in the annual report of the regents to the legislature.

1 Unless previous notice to the contrary be given, all persons engaged to present papers must be in readiness at the time assigned by the council, in default of which all remaining papers will be entitled to precedence.

2 In case of inability to be present, immediate notice should be given to the secretary to whom the paper may be forwarded for use of convocation.

3 The author of each paper should furnish, in advance, a brief abstract for newspaper reports.

4 All papers read before convocation belong to its proceedings and are to be handed to the secretary.

5 Papers for the full reading of which there may not be time, may, by permission of the council, be read by title and published in the proceedings.

Examination Department


to go into operation for academic year 1894 Purpose. To incite college graduates as well as those debarred from college privileges to do advanced work by offering official tests and recognition of attainments in studies of college and university grade.

Field to be covered. The most prominent college and university studies, others to be added as demand arises, till all branches are included.

Times and places. Higher examinations to be held in the Albany offices, within the month preceding each University convocation, and also at the time of academic examinations. To accommodate those unable to come to Albany, examinations will be held in any part of the state where candidates require them, at the times and places of present academic examinations, when higher examinations may be taken under supervision of the regular regents examiner.

Examiners. On nomination of the examination committee, the chancellor appoints, from the faculties of the colleges and universities of the state, two eminent scholars as University examiners in each of the following subjects: Philosophy, economics, pedagogy, library science, mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry, geology, paleontology, botany, biology, zoology, engineering, architecture, music, ancient history, general modern history, history of the United States, of England, of Germany and of France, and for each of the languages and literatures most studied, viz: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Latin, Greek and oriental.

Distinct examiners for each distinct subject are appointed, as this more fully recognizes special scholarship, gives a stronger faculty of examiners than to intrust several subjects to one man, and costs little more, since payments are chiefly for question papers made and answers examined.

Term of service is two years.

All official expenses are paid, including attendance on annual University convocations and all meetings to which examiners are summoned by the regents.

No fixed salary is paid at present, but instead there is paid $10 for each question paper prepared, $1 for each paper examined, and $ro a day for other required orrvices.
