What is Keele? A Historic Place! n n n The University College of North Staffordshire was founded 1949, and opened in 1950 … founded by Lord A D Lindsay of Birker, Christian socialist, educationalist, politician and visionary Forest of Light: “Search for truth in the company of friends” n Royal Charter 1962 – University of Keele n The first post-war New University – the 20 th in the UK n n n A “one-off” (unaligned) and the prototype of the modern “green-field campus university” emulated by many in the 1960 s A radical educational breakthrough in inter-disciplinary study, collegiality and community “The Keele Experiment”
What is Keele? A Different Place! In 1950 157 students arrived at the UK’s largest campus Fewer than 1, 000 students on campus until the first wave of expansion in the early 1960’s; in the 1970’s still fewer than 2, 000 students; until the early 1990’s still fewer than 3, 000 students; the big expansion began in 1995; we now have 7, 500+ full-time students and 9, 500 in total We are near peak capacity of about 10, 000, substantially oversubscribed and getting more and more popular A comparatively small/medium-sized university in numbers But a big university in terms of history, impact and reputation Are we the UK’s favourite University?
What is Keele? A Different Way! n n n Exceptionally high on-campus residence Always one of the smaller major UK universities The original Foundation Year 1950 to 1993 gave an introductory year across all disciplines A high percentage of undergraduates study dual honours with the most extensive combinations in the UK The need to “create” our community and social life here in the Bubble means that we gain lifelong friendships Our green campus is precious – in all meanings of the word “green”
