The Arms
The following is an extract from the document granting Arms to the Institute, dated June 2, 1977: . Vert a base composed of Rocks proper a broken Chain in tess throughout Argent over all a Torch erect Or enflamed proper. The principal elements incorporated in the arms of the Institute depict the myth of the Greek demigod Prometheus: the Rock to which Prometheus was bound, the broken Chains from which he was freed and the enflamed Torch representing Prometheus' gift of fire and skills to mankind. Hence the elements in the arms signify the gift of the power of knowledge, freeing and inspiring mankind to build "Towards a Better World".

Introduction The Hunter Institute of Higher Education is being
developed as a multi-discipline tertiary institution tocaterfor the demands for higher education in the Newcastle and HunterValley Region. The Institute was declared a corporate college of advanced education by the Ministerfor Education on October 1 , 1974and is governed byaCouncilestabJished under the Colleges of Advanced Education Act (1975) of New South Wales. The Institute achieved full corporate status upon the gazettal of its By-law on February 25, 1977 and the reconstitution of its Council from April 1, 1977.
The Institute was originally established in 1949 as the Newcastle Teachers' College and became known as the Newcastle College of Advanced Education when declared a corporate college in October 1974. The institution last year applied to the N.S. W. Minister for Education, Mr. Rodney Cavalier, to change its name to the Hunter Institute of Higher Education because of its continuing diversification and its wider regional base. Following Ministerial approval, the institution is now known as the Hunter Institute of Higher Education (effective date January 1,1988). Teacher education still plays an important role for the institute but the past 12 years has seen an expansion into the areas of visual arts, paramedical and community welfare studies, nursing and now administration and technological studies. The Institute's diversification of its academic programmes commenced in 1975 when it assumed responsibility of the Fine Arts diploma courses, formerly offered by the Department of Technical and Further Education at the Newcastle branch of the National Art School, and full responsibility for the Diploma in Art (Education) courses formerly offered in association with that department.
The Institute has continued its diversification into many fields and a full list of courses is at the end of this Introduction.
The Institute occupies extensive, modern, well-appointed buildings in an attractive natural bushland setting of some 24 hectares at Waratah West, adjacent to the University of Newcastle and 11 kilometres from the city of Newcastle. Stage I of the Institute complex at Waratah West was occupied progressively, first by the Department of Industrial Arts in 1970 and then by the Department of Art Education which followed in 1971. Stage II of the new complex was fully occupied in March 1974 when the Institute moved most of its remaining activities from the former Union Street site in the city. Stage II was finalised with the completion in November 1974, of an auditorium incorporating an extensive stage area, excellent facilities for the performing arts and seating on two levels for 924 persons.
In the total complex there are art studioS; craft rooms; science, woodwork, metalwork, and materials science laboratories; geography, history and social science rooms; home science, cooking and food science laboratories; needlework and textiles rooms; mathematics lecture and computer rooms; an observation clinic; music roomS; 9 music practice roomS; general lecture rooms and theatres; a Physical Education complex incorporating two fully­ equipped gymnasia, a dance studio, health studio, change rooms and lecture facilities, with adjacent courts and playing fields; and student common room, coffee lounge and dining hall. The Library consists of a single floor reading room, including study rooms, offices, typing rooms, stacks and catalogues; and a second lower floor which includes an audio-visual teaching aids resources centre, tape recording rooms, visual education rooms, a language laboratory, two lecture rooms, and extensive storage space for films, cassettes and records.
In 1981 the Institute opened a TAFECurriculum Centre at the Tighes Hill campus of the Newcastle Technical College. The Centre was funded and supported by the Commonwealth Tertiary Education Commission, The Department of Technical and Further Education (N.S.W.) and the Institute and provides facilities forTAFE teachers undergoing initial teacher training.
Construction was completed in 1980 of an Art building

costing $1.5m and this houses a number of the Institute's fine arts courses and craft courses. The building includes studios for design, drawing/painting and printmaking, display areas, workshop, darkroom, offices and course service facilities. There are three sculpture workshops adjacent to the building. The ceramics specialisation was relocated from the Union Street premises of the Institute to Waratah West in 1985 following the completion of the second stage of a new Block. The third and final stage was constructed at the end of 1986.
A major capital building development completed in 1976 was the construction of the Special Education Centre to faci I itate the consolidation and development of the Institute's courses and research in the field of special education, especially the provision of courses for the preparation of resource teachers and teachers of educationally handi­ capped children. The Centre is magnificently designed and equipped for exemplary training, research and clinical activities and provides excellent opportunities for the teaching of special education courses, particularly where clinical conditions are appropriate. It consists of two major intervention classrooms; four smaller observation/clinical rooms; as well as four diagnostic/clinical rooms, a con­ ference room, staff office wing, staff lounge, computer and curriculum resources reference room, director's suite, audio-visual control room, and extensive direct observation rooms via one-way glass. A Motor Skills Therapy wing has been added to the Centre and includes a small hydrotherapy pool, an additional pre-school room and a large area forthe treatment of physical disabilities and will be used in the treatment of children who have motoric disability and whose ages range from a few months to eight years, Close links have been established with the schools and children with specific learning difficulties are brought to the Centre for special corrective programmes which are conducted in the intervention classrooms established by the Institute, It is the Institute's aim that the Centre should become, in co­ operation with other educational institutions, a centre for further development and research in special education and thus provide a valuable service to the community,
A Multi-Purpose Centre, which includesa Child Care Unit, was officially opened at the Institute in 1984. The Centre is being developed on a progressive basis and the Child Care Unit provides a flexible range of care and hours for children from a few weeks of age up to four years. The Unit is available for staff and students and the nearby community and can cater for 25 children.
Another development in 1984 was the establishment and opening of a Studies Resources Centre for Aboriginal students at the Institute. This Centre was superseded in 1987 when an Aboriginal Education Centre was constructed on campus. The Centre includes a large multi-purpose room, a comprehensive Aboriginal library, tutorial rooms, counselling room and an Administration and reception area.
A major building project which was completed in 1986 was the 3-Stage Richardson Wing which accommodates students enrolling in the Diploma of Applied Science (Nursing).
Extensions to the Student Union Building, tothe Institute library and a new office block for academic staff were completed in 1987 anda new administration building will be completed in 1988.
In 1987 the Institute had a student enrolment of3,806, an academic equivalent full-time staff establishment of 231 In 21 departments and an administrative staff establishment of 236. The Institute's vocational courses are offered through four Schools; the School of Administration and Technology, the School of Health, the School of Education and Humanities and the School of Visual and Performing Arts.
The Institute Is governed by a Council of members drawn from the community, the staff and the students. The Council is responsible for the management of the Institute's affairs and exercises its powers, duties and authorities under the Colleges of Advanced Education Act, 1975. In discharging its powers, the Council consults with the Institute Academic Board and chief executive officers. The Council has estab­ lished committees toadvise it on matters relating toflnance,
personnel and management, academic and planning, properties and grounds, and legislative matters.
A corporate college of advanced education established under the Col/eges of Advanced Education Act has per­ petual succession, a common seal, may take legal pro­ ceedings and be proceeded against, deal with property and all matters that a body corporat~d, by law, may do to further the purposes for which it was constituted, The I nstitute is funded by the Australian Government through the agencies of the Tertiary Education Commission and the New South Wales HigherEducation Board. The planning of the Institute's recurrent and capital programmes is undertaken on a three­ year basis in accordance with the policy and requirements of these instrumentalities, but at the present time is subject to annual review in accord with current policy. The Institute is entirely responsible forthe handling and management of its funds, both capital and recurrent, granted under States Grants (Tertiary Education Assistance) legislation of the AUstralian Parliament.
The Act empowers the Institute Council to make By-laws with respect to a wide range of matters for the management and good government of the Institute, including discipline within the Institute; the election of graduate members of Council; the manner of apPointment, promotion and dis­ missal of staff; the qualifications required for admission to courses; the progress and the examination of students; the terms and conditions upon which awards, fellowships, scholarships and prizes may be conferred; the conduct of meetings of the Council and the membership and appoint­ ment of Committees and Boards of the Institute, The By­ laws made by the Council must be transmitted to the Governor for his approval. The Institute's Principal By-law was approved early in 1977 and came into effect upon its gazettal on February 25,1977.
