The Imperial University

This chapter focuses on possible linkages among the diverse institutional histories of the University of Hawai’i, the University of Puerto Rico, and the University of the Philippines—all universities founded under U.S. administration of island colonies, or colony-like possessions, between 1903 and 1908. It then provides a consideration of discursive formations from these universities which grapple with the meaning of the new imperial university—and of liberal education in particular—in the early years of three vastly separated institutions with potentially resonant concerns. The chapter also examines the implicit and explicit institutionalization of liberal education at these institutions by analyzing primary documents from the archives of each of the institutions, mainly via the genre of the general catalog and related university discourse.

Keywords:   institutional histories, University of Hawai’i, University of Puerto Rico, University of the Philippines, liberal education, institutionalization
