Making Simon Fraser UniversityeBook - 2005
This engaging history of a university-and an era-traces the formative years of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. SFU was born in a period of ferment and flux, when ideas about education were changing so rapidly and the western world was starting to feel the impact of student activism, the Civil Rights movement and opposition to the Vietnam War. Promoted as an open, innovative university, SFU attracted more mature students and far younger and more idealistic faculty than other schools. The stage was set for educational and political fireworks. Radical Campus traces those first exhilarating.
