Description:
Cyrus Gilbert Wiley, the second president of Georgia State Industrial College for Colored Youth, was appointed to the presidency in 1921. Under Wiley, the criteria for admission of a student to the institution during its early years were that he should be fourteen years of age or more, be of good moral character, and be able to pass an examination in the elementary English studies. There were also no tuition charges to students who were residents of Georgia. Although the institution graduated its first college students in 1898, the enrollment remained relatively small, reaching 585 by the beginning of Wiley’s tenure. Under Wiley, the first women students were admitted as boarders in 1921. Also, the first summer session was conducted in 1922 and in 1925 the governing body of the college was changed from a Commission to a Board of Trustees whose members were appointed for four-year terms. Wiley’s presidency ended in 1926.
