This chapter centres on the various forms of imperial institutional association that developed in the period before 1914. It focuses on policies for the mutual recognition of degrees, the 1903 Allied Colonial Universities Conference and the 1912 Congress of the Universities of the British Empire. The chapter argues that these institutional and regulatory arrangements gave official recognition to the web of informal ties that connected the empire’s wandering scholars. They placed colonial institutions alongside those developing in provincial England and drew the boundaries of the British academic community so as to include the universities of the settler colonies.
