The article recounts the establishment of the General College at the University of North Carolina (UNC) in Chapel Hill. Addison Hibbard, dean of the College of Liberal Arts at UNC, addressed the need for change in curriculum on his January 27, 1928 lecture. Hibbard criticized the modern curriculum and aimed to build an independent-study honors college within the College of Liberal Arts, switch to larger units of study or courses, and recognize exceptional teachers. In 1935, the General College bloomed and turned UNC into a more democratic institution.
