學校歷史

學校的創校歷史可以追溯至1891年成立的the Ida Blake School。之後,the Ida Blake School在1909年被州政府接管,而成為the Santa Barbara State Normal School。在1921年,學校被升等為Santa Barbara State College;在1944年,轉型成為以研究為基礎的University of California system。UCSB是第三所UC系統中的綜合大學。

二戰之後,1960到1970年代,UCSB被認為是反韓戰活動的溫床,包含1969年的爆炸和1970火燒美國銀行分行事件。之後,這裡一直是反戰人士演講的重要一站,包含:Jesse Jackson, Ralph Abernathy, Tom Hayden, Abbie Hoffman, Eldridge Cleaver, Eugene McCarthy, William Kunstler, Angela Davis, and George McGovern。

UCSB traces its origins back to the Ida Blake School which was founded in 1891 and offered training in home economics and industrial arts.The Ida Blake School was taken over by the state in 1909 and became the Santa Barbara State Normal School. In 1921, a liberal arts program was authorized and the school was renamed again to Intense lobbying by an interest group in the City of Santa Barbara, led by Thomas Storke and Pearl Chase, persuaded the State Legislature, Governor Earl Warren, and the Regents of the University of California to move the State College over to the more research-oriented University of California system in 1944. The State College system sued to stop the takeover, but the Governor did not support the suit. A state initiative was passed, however, to stop subsequent conversions of State Colleges to University of California campuses.

Originally, the Regents envisioned a small, several thousand-student liberal arts college, a so-called `Williams College of the West,' at Santa Barbara. Chronologically, UCSB is only the third general-education campus of the University of California, after Berkeley and UCLA (the only other state campus to have been acquired by the UC system). The original campus the Regents acquired in Santa Barbara was located on only 100 acres (0.40 km2) of largely unusable land on a seaside mesa, however. The availability of a 400-acre (1.6 km2) ex-Marine Base on another seaside mesa in Goleta, which the Regents could acquire for free from the federal government, led to that site becoming the Santa Barbara campus in 1949. Originally, only 3000-3500 students were anticipated, but the post WWII baby boom led to the designation of general campus in 1958, along with a name change from "Santa Barbara College" to "University of California, Santa Barbara," and the discontinuation of the industrial arts program for which the State college was famous. A Chancellor, Samuel B. Gould, was appointed in 1959. All of this change was done in accordance with the California Master Plan for Higher Education.

UCSB became nationally known as a hotbed of anti-Vietnam War activity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Other than UC Berkeley, no other California college received as much attention from the national media for its antiwar activities. Events during the era included a bombing at the school's faculty club in 1969 (which killed the caretaker, Dover Sharp) and the spring 1970 burning of the Bank of America branch building in the student community of Isla Vista, during which time one male student, Kevin Moran, was shot and killed, though the investigation ruled it an accident. This UCSB student shooting did not receive a lot of media attention as it was overshadowed by the subsequent shootings on the campus of Kent State in Ohio. In addition, part of UCSB's anti-Vietnam activity impelled then Governor Ronald Reagan to impose a curfew and order the National Guard to enforce it. Weapon-carrying guardsmen were a common sight on campus and in Isla Vista during this time. A number of noteworthy anti-war speakers made UCSB a key stop on national speaking tours in the early 1970s. Among them were Jesse Jackson, Ralph Abernathy, Tom Hayden, Abbie Hoffman, Eldridge Cleaver, Eugene McCarthy, William Kunstler, Angela Davis, and George McGovern. In a later era, John Anderson, Jesse Jackson, and Hillary Clinton were the Presidential candidates to speak at the school.

UCSB was elected to the Association of American Universities in 1995.
