From: The Review of Higher Education
Volume 20, Number 1, Fall 1996
pp. 69-99 | 10.1353/rhe.1996.0005


The centenary of higher education as a field of study occurred in 1993, commemorating the first course in higher education, offered in the autumn of 1893 at Clark University by G. Stanley Hall. This course also launched the first higher education program, for by 1924, three professors had offered 16 courses, written numerous publications, and advised the first 10 master's and doctoral students. This article reviews Hall's professional life, his concept of higher pedagogy, his rationale for its study, and the program's three developmental phases.
