This chapter provides an overview of the University of California, which opened as an all-male institution in the fall of 1869—in keeping with the practice of its avowed model, the University of Michigan. Without ceremony, however, the next year it began welcoming male as well as female students, thus continuing to keep pace with Michigan, which had begun admitting women in January 1870. Also as at Michigan, the University of California took no responsibility for regulating interactions between the sexes on campus. Yet California also differed from Michigan. For one, it found itself in greater need of defending its fundamental moral orientation.

Keywords:   University of California, all-male college, University of Michigan, moral orientation, ceremony
