Comings and Goings: University Students in Canadian Society, 1854-1973

Front Cover
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, Feb 18, 2003 - Education - 184 pages
Looking at almost 120 years of Canadian history, Charles Levi examines the origins, activities, and careers of 1,876 members of the executive of the University College Literary and Athletic Society of the University of Toronto from the inception of the College until 1973. Using an intricate quantitative analysis of data from student records and genealogical sources, Levi charts the history of student activities at University College, filling a gap in the historiography of higher education in Canada. In an era when all forms of education are being scrutinized to determine if they are fulfilling their functions, Comings and Goings shows that the Canadian university has continually adapted to the needs of society as a whole and that Canadian university students have used their educational experiences in innovative ways.
