dc.description.abstract A wave of student activism swept the nation during the turbulent 1960’s and 1970’s. During this time, the University of Oregon earned the reputation as the “Berkeley of the Northwest” in obvious reference to the chaotic and violent campus of the University of California at Berkeley during this time period. The connections between the two campuses run deep. Students and faculty moved between the campuses for educational purposes or to participate in the powerful social movements that enveloped both campuses during the ‘60’s and ‘70’s. Driven by congruent ideologies, the atmosphere found on both campuses was remarkably similar, especially in the students’ and sometimes faculty’s stance against the conflict in Vietnam. Students challenged the administrations and attacked the status quo on both campuses with the same passion, but the movement at the University of Oregon never reached the same scale as the one at Berkeley. en
