The University’s Board of Trustees received a report recommending the establishment of a four-year medical school, with an adequately supported teaching hospital. At the meeting, Colonel J. Bryan Grimes "moved that the board request the legislature to build the proposed hospital at Chapel Hill in connection with the medical school expansion as a memorial to the young men of North Carolina who lost their lives in the World War [I]. It was seconded by Mr. Josephus Daniels and unanimously carried."

The University was admitted into the Association of American Universities, making it one of the first southern institutions to be inducted. Founded in 1900 by a group of fourteen universities offering the Ph.D. degree, the Association currently consists of sixty American and two Canadian universities.
