1968 Student Demands Rally

In May of 1968 AU students held a series of rallies on university governance issues. The students were concerned about the confidentiality of their records, curfews for women, mandatory housing rules, and the inclusion of the student's voice in the making of university policies.  The University formed an ad-hoc conference of students, faculty and administrators to review the students demands.  Eleven out of the twelve demands were eventually approved by the conference participants.
