UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES.

GENERAL VIEWS.

Table 39 presents the statistics of colleges for men or for both sexes,' which agree at least in this respect: they all make provision for the course of study which, by common consent, is assigned to the colleges of liberal arts. The majority of the institutions tabulated confine themselves to the undergraduate courses leading to the B. A. or other first degree. A few began their existence as parts of university organizations, comprehending in their original purpose the whole round of human knowledge and showing in their development more or less progress towards this ideal. A still smaller number, having originally the single aim of the colleges of liberal arts, has developed graduate and professional schools or courses of equal or superior importance to the undergraduate course. Institutions belonging to the second and third group appear also in Tables 43, 44, 48, 50, and 52, according to the number and character of tieir several departments. No provision has heretofore been made in the reports of this Oflice for the tabular representation of these colleges or universities as organic wholes.

The total number of institutions presented in Table 39 is 345, having, so far as reported, 4,670 professors and 67,623 students. The latter are distributed as follows: 25,393, preparatory; 14,246, classical; 4,872, scientific.

CONSIDERATION BY GROUPS. For purposes of more particular examination it is desirable to resolve the great Fariety of institutions included in Table 39 into groups possessing as nearly as possible common characteristics. Such division may properly be based upon the fact of tabulation in one, in two, or in soveral tables pertaining to the general subject of superior instruction.

Out of the total number, 231 are colleges that can be adequately represented in Table 39. These may be divided into two groups as follows: Having preparatory departments, 179; baving no preparatory departments, 52. Of the former, 168, and of the latter, 22, report students in the collegiate course to the number of 15,989, leaving 40 that make no report of collegiate work. Twenty of the institutions in Table 39 appear also in Table 43 ; of these 11 were Fither created by the land grant of 1862, or else have added to their original foundations new colleges or departments which received the benefit of that grant. Nine are represented in Table 44 by schools or departments of science pot endowed by the land grant. Sixteen of the 20 report students in college courses, the total being, as far as regards the departments included in Table 39, 2,839. There remain to be considered 33 colleges or universities which, in addition to departments represented in Table 39 or in Tables 39 and 43 or 44, have one or more professional schools. From the analysis of the statistics relating to this number it appears that 40 tabulated in 39 only, and 2 tabulated in 39 and 48, have theological departments; & tabulated in 39 only, and 3 tabulated in 39 and 50, have law departments; 7 tabulated in 39 only, and 6 tabulated in 39 and 52, have medical schools. Of the whole number (viz, 66), 64 report students in college courses to the number of 7,960. The remaining 28 institutions, with the single exception of Johns Hopkins University, have more than 1 professional school or department. The number of collegiate students credited to them, so far as regards Table 39, is 5,627, 4 colleges not reporting.

THE SITUATION AND TENDENCIES AS DISCLOSED BY THE ANALYSIS. The foregoing analysis throws some light upon the progress and present status of provision for liberal culture and professional training in the United States. Before

Fire colleges for women are included. These aro in New York State, and sustain the same relation to the University of New York as do the colleges for men.
