University of Technology Sydney

The University of Technology Sydney is a public research university located in Sydney, Australia. Although its origins are said to trace back to the 1870s, the university was founded in its current form in 1988; as of 2018, UTS enrolls 45,930 students, including 33,070 undergraduate and 12,860 postgraduate students through its 9 faculties and schools. The university is regarded as one of the world's leading young universities, ranked 1st in Australia and 10th in the world by the 2019 QS World University Rankings. UTS is a member of the Australian Technology Network, the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning and the Association of Commonwealth Universities; the University of Technology Sydney originates from the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts, established in 1833. In the 1870s, the School formed the Workingman's College, taken over by the NSW government to form, in 1882, the Sydney Technical College. In 1940 the NSW Parliament passed an Act to establish an Institute of Technology, which in 1964 led to the establishment of the New South Wales Institute of Technology.

In 1968, the NSW Institute of Technology amalgamated with the NSW Institute of Business Studies. In 1976 NSWIT established the first law school in NSW outside the university sector; the Haymarket campus opened in 1985. On 8 October 1987 university status was granted to NSWIT, followed by the passing of the University of Technology, Act 1987, it was reconstituted as the University of Technology Sydney in 1988, along with the incorporation of the School of Design of the former Sydney College of the Arts. In 1989, the University of Technology, Act 1989 formed UTS by absorbing the Kuring-gai College of Advanced Education and the Institute of Technical and Adult Teacher Education of the Sydney College of Advanced Education. An academic Structure of nine faculties and 25 schools was established in 1991; the School of Design was housed at a campus in Balmain, which closed at the end of 1994, with the school moved to a new building at the city campus. The environmental and biomedical science schools were located on a campus at St Leonards, closed in 2006, which relocated to the city campus following a redevelopment.

The Kuring-Gai campus closed at the end of 2015, with classes and facilities moved into the main Haymarket campus. This marked the consolidation of UTS into a single unified campus in the Sydney CBD; the UTS city campus is located at the southern border of Sydney's central business district, close to Central Station and Railway Square. The UTS Tower is the nucleus of the city campus, fronting on to Broadway; the campus consists of five distinct precincts. Broadway and Blackfriars are located at the city campus, while precincts at Moore Park and Botany integrate specialist facilities with surrounding industry organisations. Broadway is home to the faculties of Science, Health and Social Sciences, Engineering and IT, Design and Building. Haymarket includes the faculties of Business and Transdisciplinary Innovation, as well as the UTS Library, two lecture theatres in the Powerhouse Museum; the Blackfriars precinct in Chippendale contains the Blackfriars Children's Centre and research and innovation teams while the Moore Park precinct features sports facilities within the Rugby Australia Building and the Botany precinct consists of the specialist research facility UTS Tech Lab.

The campus has been transformed since 2008 by the university's City Campus Master Plan, a $1 billion-plus investment in new buildings and facilities, major upgrades and refurbishments. The UTS Tower on Broadway is an example of brutalist architecture with square and block concrete designs. Completed and opened in 1979 by then-Premier Neville Wran, the Tower housed the NSW Institute of Technology, which transformed to become UTS in the late 1980s. In October 2006, the UTS Tower was voted the ugliest building in Sydney in a poll hosted by The Sydney Morning Herald, receiving 22% of the total vote; the Tower is the largest campus building, in terms of both floor space. Other notable buildings in the Broadway precinct include: Building 2, UTS Central, is intended as a central hub for the campus. Opened in August 2019, the 17-storey building is encased in glass and includes the new UTS Library, the Faculty of Law, the Hive Super Lab, three collaborative theatres, student spaces and a food court; the new food court includes outlets such as Mad Mex and Uni Bros.

Building 3, the Bon Marche Building, which dates to the 1890s and was named after the Parisian department store Le Bon Marché. A department store operated by Marcus Clark & Co, the building now accommodates specialist facilities for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Building 7, or the Vicki Sara Building, home to Faculty of Science administration and specialist facilities, the Graduate School of Health. Designed by architects Durbach Block Jaggers, in association with BVN Architecture, it has been awarded a 6 Star Green Star Design and As-Built rating, certified by the Green Building Council of Australia, includes many sustainable features including a rooftop garden with stormwater collection and recycled building materials.

Peter Hauser (American football)

Herman Peter Hauser was a United States Native American football player. He played for the Haskell Indians football team from 1904 to 1905 and for the Carlisle Indians football team from 1906 to 1910 and was selected as a consensus first-team fullback on the 1907 College Football All-America Team, he was a multi-talented player who ran with the ball, handled place-kicking and punt returns, has been credited as the first player in American football to throw a spiral pass. Records are in dispute as to Hauser's year of birth. Hauser's World War I draft registration card stated that he was born on June 10, 1887, at Fort Reno, a U. S. Army outpost on the old Cheyenne-Arapaho reservation in Indian Territory, in what became central Oklahoma; the 1900 Census, on the other hand, recorded his date of birth as being in June 1885. A third birth year, 1884, is suggested by Hauser's entry at the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame. Between 1892 and 1894, U. S. Indian census rolls list Hauser living with his mother, older brother and two younger sisters in the Oklahoma territory.

Peter and Emil were listed as students at the Halstead School. By 1896, Hauser's mother had remarried, the family was living with the mother's new husband, Waldo Reed. By 1900, Hauser and brother, were no longer with their mother or sisters and were listed as orphans at the Mennonite Orphan & Aid Society in Lakin Township, Harvey County, Kansas, they were listed as having had an Indian mother. Hauser's entry at the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame describes him as Cheyenne. By 1904, Hauser was a student at the Haskell Institute, a boarding school established for Native American children, he played football for the Haskell Indians football team from 1904 to 1905. In November 1904, the Haskell football team played an exhibition game at the St. Louis World's Fair before a crowd of 12,000 spectators. Hauser, playing at the right end position, scored Haskell's only points on a field goal from the 18-yard line. In 1906, he was transferred to the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania.

There, he played for the Carlisle Indians football team from 1906 to 1910 under head coach Glenn Scobey Warner. Hauser became a star during the 1907 season. In an early game, he kicked a field goal in a 10 -- 0 victory over Villanova. In October 1907, Hauser ran for a touchdown and kicked to goals after touchdown, scoring eight points, in Carlisle's 14–6 victory over the team from Syracuse University. In November 1907, The New York Times wrote that Hauser handled kicking duties for Carlisle, returned punts, was "the mainstay of the defense." That same month, Carlise defeated the Harvard football team one of the top teams in the country, by a 25–13 score in front of a crowd of 30,000 spectators in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The New York Times wrote that Hauser's end runs were "marvels" and that he was able to circle the Harvard ends "at will." Carlisle's 1907 season ended with an 18–4 victory over Amos Alonzo Stagg's Chicago Maroons football team. Hauser was described as "a one-man wrecking crew" against Chicago, as he kicked two field goals and an extra point and threw a 50-yard touchdown pass as well.

Hauser's most historic moment, came on October 27, 1907, against a Penn team that won every other game and was declared national champion. The "national champions" lost to Carlisle by a 26–6 score. At a time when forward passes were short tosses, Hauser threw a pass 40 yards, hitting his receiver in stride. In her history of Native Americans in football, Sally Jenkins called Hauser's long, 40-yard spiral pass against Penn one of the "three or four signal moments in the evolution of football" and "the sporting equivalent of the Wright brothers taking off at Kitty Hawk." The Philadelphia North American compared it to the "puny" passes of the day, called it "a lordly throw, a hurl that went farther than many a kick," and predicted that Hauser's throw would be "talked of this year." Hauser's secret was throwing the ball in a spiral. Carlisle head coach, Pop Warner, said that Hauser was credited as the first football player to throw a spiral pass and could "hit his ends on the dead run with uncanny accuracy."After the 1907 season, Hauser was selected as a consensus first-team fullback on the 1907 College Football All-America Team.

Hauser and teammate, Albert Exendine, became the third and fourth Carlisle players to receive consensus All-American honors, following halfback Isaac Seneca in 1898 and quarterback Jimmy Johnson in 1903. Jim Thorpe became Carlisle's fifth consensus All-American in 1911. Carlisle coach Warner chose Hauser at the fullback on his all-time Carlisle football team and compared him favorably to Thorpe. According to Warner, Hauser was "practically a replica of Jim Thorpe." Hauser returned to El Reno, the town that had built up around his birthplace at Fort Reno. He died in an automobile accident while changing a tire. Accounts differ as to whether he died in the 1940s, he was posthumously inducted into the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame in 1987
