A HIGHER STANDARD FOR OREGON
Dean Dyment, in a comprehensive outline of tlie faults
which he lias observed existing at the University during the
past seven years, delivered before the faculty colloquium this
week, notes that the University, in an attempt to obtain a
large number of students enrolled, bus accredited giaduates
of 233 high schools in the state of Oregon, or more than any
other state institution with which he is familiar. This fault,
he sevs, lies partly with the state board of education, and
partly with the University itself.
While the rate of increase of students in the University
has been normal, Dean Dyment believes that various faults
whicli he has outlined lias in a measure tended to keep the
scholastic standard of the University down. Lack of contin
uity between courses in high schools of the state and those of
the University, faults in the present elective system now used
here, the prevalence of non-scholastic activities on the Oregon
campus, the attitude of students towards attendance at classes
and outside preparation, the tendency of the University to
eauitalize spirit instead of the degree, and perhaps^a failure on
the part of the faculty to make lectures of a sufficient high
character—all these were named as things which the Univer
sity might do well to overcome.
The easiest way to get a large number of students in the
(Xnivei sit', according to Dean Dyment,-is to raise the stand
ard of admittance. This will mean, we take it, that the num
ber of accredited high schools throughout the state will be
lowered considerably, and will, we believe, tend to raise the
entire educational standard of the state.
As to the University itself, the Dean recommends that the
elective system among subjects be changed to a system of el
ectives among courses of study. Stern courses of study with
free election among them as wholes, but not in part, will alle
viate some of the present faults of the University.
That “every professional school, and certain of the de
partments prescribe their curricula, basing them on certain
high school pre-requisites and that the University educate the
high school staffs of the state as to these pre-requisites with a
view* to their guiding students as far back as the second year,”
, is the sum of the recommendations made to the faculty.
Jt seems as though the University would do well to follow
tile recommendations of Dean Dyment. Already steps have
been taken by the schools and departments to raise their own
standards, and it is certain that with a man at the helm with
such a knowledge of the faults and problems of the University
as Dean Dyment, there is no question but that the rank of the
University of Oregon will come up if the high aims of the
Dean are carried out.
Last night’s rally, spontaneous and sincere as it was, is
positive proof that the good old Oregon Spirit is thriving on
the campus this year as never before. It took a good demon
stration like that ol last night to wake everyone up to the fact
that Oregon is tuned up to what is happening, and that the
good old spirit will do all in its power to come out on top
every chance it gets.
