ONE UNIVERSITY: The Evolution of an Idea
AbstractThe one-university ideaâ€”that the University of California is a single institution whose campuses are united in the pursuit of a common mission and common standards of qualityâ€”has been a guiding organizational principle since UC President Robert Gordon Sproul first articulated it in the 1930s. This paper examines the origins of the one-university idea in the Sproul era, the role it has played in UCâ€™s institutional development through waves of decentralization and campus expansion, and whether it remains relevant today.
