Northwestern University is a private research university with campuses in Evanston and Chicago in northeastern Illinois; as well as a campus in Doha, Qatar. Northwestern has 12 undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools offering 124 undergraduate degrees and 145 graduate and professional degrees.[1][2]

Northwestern was founded in 1851 by John Evans, for whom Evanston is named, and eight other lawyers, businessmen and Methodist leaders to serve the people of a region that had once been known as the Northwest Territory. Instruction began in 1855; women were admitted in 1869. Today, the main campus is a 240-acre parcel in Evanston, along the shores of Lake Michigan. The university's law and medical schools are located on a 25-acre campus in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood. In academic year 2010-11, Northwestern enrolled 8,397 undergraduate and 7,870 graduate and professional students.[3]

Corporal punishment for undergraduates was introduced in 1922, when it was announced that students of either sex could be spanked for a range of offenses in public, including swearing, smoking (if aged under 21), rollerskating in the downtown district, joyriding, or being rowdy in an ice cream parlor. There was a minimum sentence of five spanks and a maximum of 25. Male students were spanked by Policeman Carl Exman, and female ones by Policewoman Georgiana Jerell.[4] It is not stated whether the spankings were administered publicly or privately, or how many such punishments were carried out, or when these rules were abolished, assuming they have been.
