Fri Nov 16 2007 An Incomplete Timeline of Activism at UCSC
An Incomplete History of Activism at UC Santa Cruz josh sonnenfeld writes, "The following timeline was included as part of my senior thesis for Feminist Studies, Spring 2007. The timeline starts with the founding of the University in 1965 and ends in November of 2006. There are many holes and gaps (hence it being 'incomplete'), but it's a compilation of much of the resources I could find and will hopefully help all of you to better understand UCSC and our activist tradition. Make sure to check out the footnotes and sources - there is a wealth of information on various events and movements that you can access. Enjoy!"

Activism at UCSC was both inspired by and inspired other activists to undertake scholarly efforts, such as in 1969, the 1st UCSC commencement was disrupted by anti-war demonstrations. Students gave Black Panther leader Huey P. Newton (in prison) an honorary diploma. Years later (1980), Newton graduated with a PhD from the History of Consciousness program. His thesis (later, a book) was entitled, “War Against the Panthers: A Study of Repression in America.”
