Special Article Collection on Student Activism: Open Access Through December 31, 2015

October 29, 2015 Jon C. Dalton Florida State University

Student activism has long been a part of college life in American universities.  Since the 1960s and especially with the communications revolution brought about by the internet and social media, college students have increasingly refused to accept their college years as a moratorium from life.  Today, college students are engaged in a wide range of social, political and consumer activities both on-campus and off.

Colleges and universities are often ambivalent about the role of student activism.  On one hand, most seek to cultivate moral and civic commitment as an integral part of their educational mission.  On the other hand, they frequently resist and sometimes suppress student activism when it becomes loud and disruptive to the routine of campus life.

The topic of student activism and its place in contemporary higher education is the focus of this special collection of current and past articles compiled by the editors of the Journal of College and Character.  We are pleased to provide JCC readers this special open access resource on a topic of great concern to student affairs administrators, faculty and others interested in critical issues in higher education today.
