Open Access Graduate Research Paper
American college student activism is best known for the part it played during the turbulent 1960's. Many were surprised when it ended abruptly in the early 1970's and students returned their focus to academics and other personal issues. However, the 1980's brought about levels of campus unrest that had not been seen since the late 1960's and early 1970's (Altbach & Cohen, 1989). The purpose of this paper is to analyze the student movements of the 1980's giving attention to the tactics student activists used to achieve their goals. Specifically, the Anti-Apartheid Movement, Central America and the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Peace Movement during the 1980's will be reviewed.
