Abstract

While administrational decisions were being made, there was pressure from quarters outside Dunedin for the newly established University to join the University of New Zealand (UNZ). The University of Otago went its own way until eventually, in 1874, it joined the UNZ. It agreed to award degrees of the University of New Zealand, but kept its distinctive ‘University’ tag, as opposed to all the others, which were called ‘colleges’. In 1961, the University Act dissolved the UNZ. This document reveals part of the ‘legalese’ that the University Council had to work through.
