University of Essex
Fra den studerende oprør i 60'erne til vores moderne banebrydende forskning, vi har aldrig accepteret status quo eller været bange for at tale ud. Vi tænker hele tiden nye og bedre måder at gøre tingene. Vores skoler og afdeling Sare ledere i forskning i verdensklasse, der ændrer liv.
Vi er et hjem for de talentfulde og den sejlivede, den modige og dristige, og dem, der er utålmodige for forandring. Udfordrende konvention er i vores DNA. Du vil blive udsat for en bred vifte af forskellige perspektiver og udtalelser, som dem i vores provokerende THINK! foredragsrække, hvilket betyder, at vi ikke altid er enige - men det er, hvor stor ideer fødes.
Kun ved at tilskynde dig til at stille vanskelige spørgsmål kan vi bryde intellektuelle grænser. Hos Essex vi udvider grænserne for viden og banebrydende løsninger til spørgsmål af global interesse. Vi giver dig ægte licens til at forme, hvad der foregår omkring dig og tage intellektuelle risici, således at såvel som at lære "hvordan", du udfordre 'hvorfor'.
Hos Essex vi opfordre vores studerende til at stræbe efter at være nogens lige, men ingen overlegne - at være sikker, men ikke arrogant, strålende men ydmyge. Hvis du vil have mere ud af din universitetsuddannelse end blot en god grad, Hvis du ønsker at være oplyst og gøre en forskel, Essex er stedet at komme.

I juli 1959, Essex County Council accepted a proposal from Alderman Leatherland that a university be established in the county. A University Promotion Committee was formed chaired by Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Sir John Ruggles-Brise, which submitted a formal application to the University Grants Committee requesting that a University of Essex should be established. Initial reports suggested that the Promotion Committee had recommended Hylands Park in Chelmsford as the site for the new University, however in May 1961, the foundation of the university was announced in the House of Commons with Wivenhoe as the preferred location and in December of the same year, Wivenhoe Park was acquired for the new university. I juli 1962, Albert Sloman, Gilmour Professor of Spanish and Dean of the Faculty of Arts, University of Liverpool, was appointed as Vice-Chancellor and the Rt. Hon. R. EN. Butler, was invited to be Chancellor, with Anthony Rowland-Jones appointed as Registrar.
The first Professors were appointed in May 1963: Alan Gibson in Physics, Peter Townsend in Sociology, Donald Davie in Literature, Richard Lipsey in Economics, Ian Proudman in Mathematics, Jean Blondel in Government, and John Bradley in Chemistry. With its first staff appointed, a development plan for the university was published and a £1million Appeal Fund was launched. Within six months the Appeal Fund had exceeded its £1million target with The Queen Mother and Sir Winston Churchillamong contributors, while work began on clearing the site for building work. In Autumn 1963, red was chosen as the University colour and the first prospectus was prepared and work began on the first permanent buildings; the science block and boiler room next to Wivenhoe House. I januar 1964, Hardy Amies designed the university’s academic robes and temporary teaching huts had to be erected close to Wivenhoe House, while in March Sir John Ruggles-Brise was appointed the first Pro-Chancellor and Alderman Leatherland the first Treasurer of the University. Two months later the university’s Armorial Bearings were published, with the motto “Thought the harder, heart the keener”.
I oktober 1964, den første 122 students arrived with 28 teaching staff in three schools: Comparative Studies, Physical Sciences and Social Studies. Departments of Chemistry, Fysik, Regering, Sociologi, Litteratur, Mathematics and Economics open along with the Language Centre (later the Department of Language and Linguistics) and the Computing Centre (later the Department of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering) with Denis Mesure elected as the first President of the Students’ Råd. Work started on the first residential tower, Rayleigh, in December with The Queen approving the grant of Charter to take effect from 11 januar 1965.
1965 brought 399 students enrolling for the start of the new academic year; the number of academic staff more than doubled to 61; and the first degrees, five MSc and five MA degrees were awarded. The Physics building opened and the first six floors of Rayleigh tower were ready for occupation, while work began on the Albert Sloman Library. The first female lecturer was appointed: Dorothy E. Smith in the Department of Sociology. I december, University Court met for the first time with around 500 members. Six months later, work started on the Lecture Theatre Building, plus the ‘Topping out’ of Keynes tower.
I oktober 1966, the Hexagon Restaurant and General Store opened, with the number of students reaching 750. Lord Butler was installed as Chancellor at a ceremony held in Colchester’s Moot Hall in 1967 and the first Honorary Degrees were presented, the University’s Mace was carried for the first time, while the first annual Degree Congregation saw 135 degrees conferred in July. At the start of the next academic year, the departments of Computer Science and Electronic Systems Engineering accepted their first students, the SSRC Data Bank (later renamed the UK Data Archive) was established and the Lecture Theatre Building and Library opened along with the first phase of the Social and Comparative Studies building, while work proceeded on Tawney and William Morris residential towers.
På 25 november 2004, Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the university as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations (1964–2004). Some of the longest running members of staff were invited to meet them at the presentation including the University’s first student, John M. Dowden. Starting postgraduate research on fluid dynamics at the age of 23 i 1963, John later became a professor of mathematics and was the head of the University’s Mathematics Department from 2001–2005. He retired in September 2008.
The university is constantly expanding. The Network Centre building opened in May 2004 housing the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering and parts of the Department of Computer Science (who merged in 2007 to create Computer Science and Electronic Engineering). The University Quays, a student accommodation complex housing 770 studerende, opened in September 2003. The Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall, with a 1,000 seat capacity, åbnet i 2006. In Southend the £26m Gateway Building opened in 2007, a former church been converted to the Clifftown Studios providing East 15 students with a theatre, studios and workshop spaces.
