“the branches of learning, which shall be taught in the University, and the number & description of the professorships they will require”
I think it's interesting seeing what was originally planned to be taught at the University and how far it has come today. As we all know there are a wide range of subjects and topics being taught today, some I never imagined would be a real course at any school.
In this enquiry they supposed that the governing considerations should be the healthiness of the site, the fertility of the neighbouring country, and it’s centrality to the white population of the whole state
This University was founded off of the basis of making sure it was central to the white population, which is crazy to think in terms of how far it has come and the diversity we see on Grounds every day. One of the main reasons they probably also wanted the site to be healthy and near a fertile neighborhood was to benefit what would soon be the white students populating the whole University.
