The University of Victoria is a public comprehensive research university located in the Greater Victoria municipalities of Oak Bay and Saanich, British Columbia, Canada. The university traces its roots to Victoria College, an institution established in 1903; the college was the first post-secondary institution established in British Columbia, operated as an affiliated college until 1963, when it was reorganized into the independent University of Victoria. The university has ranked as the second best comprehensive university in Canada for three successive years; the campus is spread over 403 acres. The university operates nine academic faculties and schools including the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business and the Faculties of Education, Fine Arts, Human & Social Development, Law and Social Sciences, it is the nation's lead institution in the VENUS and NEPTUNE deep-water seafloor observatory projects. The university hosts and leads the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions and is home to two Environment Canada labs: the Canadian Center for Climate Modelling and Analysis and the Water and Climate Impacts Research Centre.
The Ocean Climate Building housed at the Queenswood location is dedicated to ocean and climate research. Furthermore, the Institute of Integrated Energy Systems leads research on sustainable energy solutions and alternative energy sources; the university is home to Canada's first and only Indigenous Law degree program and to dedicated research centers for Indigenous and Environmental law. Based in the capital city of British Columbia, the university has educated many prominent legal and political leaders, including Jody Wilson-Raybould, Rona Ambrose, Supreme Court Justice Russell Brown. In recent years, the university has taught the founders of several leading technology companies, including Flickr and Hootsuite; the University of Victoria has produced several Rhodes and Gates Scholars and its alumni and faculty have worked on Nobel Prize winning research teams. As of 2018, the university has been home to more than 40 Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada; the University of Victoria is the oldest post-secondary institution in British Columbia, established in 1903 as an affiliated college of McGill University before gaining full autonomy through a charter on July 1, 1963.
Victoria College, established in 1903 as an affiliated college of McGill University, gained autonomy and full degree granting status on March 1, 1963. The non-denominational university had enjoyed 60 years of prior teaching tradition at the university level as Victoria College; this 60 years of history may be viewed conveniently in three distinct stages. Between the years 1903 and 1915, Victoria College was affiliated with McGill University, offering first- and second-year McGill courses in Arts and Science. Administered locally by the Victoria School Board, the College was an adjunct to Victoria High School and shared its facilities. Both institutions were under the direction of a single Principal: E. B. Paul, 1903–1908. J. Willis, 1908–1915; the opening in 1915 of the University of British Columbia, established by Act of Legislature in 1908, obliged the college to suspend operations in higher education in Victoria. University of British Columbia was created in 1908. A single, public provincial university, it was modeled on the American state university, with an emphasis on extension work and applied research.
The governance was modeled on the provincial University of Toronto Act of 1906 which established a bicameral system of university government consisting of a senate, responsible for academic policy, a board of governors exercising exclusive control over financial policy and having formal authority in all other matters. The president, appointed by the board, was to provide a link between the two bodies and to perform institutional leadership. In 1920, as a result of local demands, Victoria College began the second stage of its development, reborn in affiliation with the University of British Columbia. Though still administered by the Victoria School Board, the college was now separated from Victoria High School, moving in 1921 into the magnificent Dunsmuir mansion known as Craigdarroch Castle. Over the next two decades, under Principals E. B. Paul and P. H. Elliott, Victoria College built a reputation for thorough and scholarly instruction in first- and second-year arts and science, it was during this period that future author Pierre Berton edited and served as principal cartoonist for the student newsletter, The Microscope.
Between the years 1921-1944, the enrollment at Victoria College did not often reach above 250. However, in 1945, 128 servicemen returned from World War II; this pushed enrollment up to 400, in 1946. The final stage, between the years 1945 and 1963, saw the transition from two-year college to university, under Principals J. M. Ewing and W. H. Hickman. During this period, the college was governed by the Victoria College Council, representative of the parent University of British Columbia, the Greater Victoria School Board, the provincial Department of Education. Physical changes were many. In 1946 the college was forced by postwar enrollment to move from Craigdarroch to the Lansdowne campus of the Provincial Normal School, the current location of Camosun College's Lansdowne Campus; the Normal School, itself an institution with a long and honourable history, joined Victoria College in 1956 as its Faculty of Education. Late in this transitional period the 284-acre --now 385-acre --campus at Gordon Head was acquired.
Academic expansion was rapid after 1956, until in 1
Die Welt is a German national daily newspaper, published as a broadsheet by Axel Springer SE. Die Welt was founded in Hamburg in 1946 by the British occupying forces, aiming to provide a "quality newspaper" modelled on The Times, it carried news and British-viewpoint editorial content, but from 1947 it adopted a policy of providing two leading articles on major questions, one British and one German. The newspaper was bought by Axel Springer in 1953; the 1993 circulation of the paper was 209,677 copies. At its peak in the occupation period, it had a circulation of around a million; the modern paper takes a self-described "liberal cosmopolitan" position in editing, but Die Welt is considered to be conservative. The average circulation of Die Welt is about 180,000 and the paper can be obtained in more than 130 countries. Daily regional editions appear in Berlin and Hamburg, in 2002 the paper experimented with a Bavarian edition. A daily regional supplement appears in Bremen; the main editorial office is in conjunction with the Berliner Morgenpost.
Die Welt is the flagship newspaper of the Axel Springer publishing group. Its leading competitors are the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Süddeutsche Zeitung and the Frankfurter Rundschau. Financially, it has been a lossmaker for many years. Die Welt was a founding member of the European Dailies Alliance, has a longstanding co-operation with comparable daily newspapers from other countries, including the Daily Telegraph, Le Figaro, ABC; the newspaper publishes a compact edition entitled Welt Kompakt, a 32-page cut-down version of the main broadsheet. Welt Kompakt is targeted to a younger public; the paper does not appear on Sundays. In November 2010, a redesign for the newspaper was launched, featuring a new logo with a dark blue globe, a reduced number of columns from seven to six, typography based on the Freight typeface designed by Joshua Darden. Welt Kompakt was redesigned to use that typeface. In 2009, the Sunday edition Welt am Sonntag was recognized as one of the "World’s Best-Designed Newspapers" by the Society for News Design, along with four other newspapers.
On 2 May 2014, the Swiss German business magazine BILANZ began to be published as a monthly supplement of Die Welt. On 18 January 2018 the German TV channel N24 changed its name to Welt; the paper was banned in Egypt in February 2008 due to the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad. Since 1999, the Die Welt book supplement Die Literarische Welt has presented an annual €10,000 literature prize available to international authors; the award is in honor of Willy Haas who founded Die Literarische Welt in 1925.
