Excerpt from The Columbian University: Notes on Its Relations to the City of Washington Considered as the Seat of a National University In the year 1821 an act of incorporation was procured from the Congress of the United States erecting in the city of Washington "a college for the sole and exclusive purpose of educating youth in the English, learned, and foreign languages, the liberal arts, sciences, and literatures," the style and title of which was to be "The Columbian College in the District of Columbia." The charter was procured at the instance of representative members of the Baptist denomination of Christians, who, while seeking a liberal charter at the hands of Congress, were themselves careful to premise against the intrusion of religious tests in the management of the institution committed to their care. The seventh section of the charter reads as follows: "And be it further enacted, That all persons of every religious denomination shall be capable of being elected trustees; nor shall any person, either as president, professor, tutor, or pupil, be refused admittance into said college, or denied any of the privileges, immunities, or advantages thereof, for or on account of his sentiments in matters of religion." Accordingly, from its foundation down to the present day, men of different religious denominations have participated in its government and in its work of instruction. The founders of the college projected it on a large scale, designing it to be directly ancillary to the church and to missions, but meaning also that it should be national in its influence and comprehensive in the scope and scheme of its teachings. They hoped and believed that in reaching the height of its opportunities and calling it would become as broad as civilization in the liberal range of its disciplines and of its systems of culture.
