Free University

Categories: Topics

The concept was initiated by president of the students' government Scott Gillie in 1970-1971 and ran for several years. Courses were free and included topics such as contemporary sexual codes, environment, fencing, science fiction, conservatism. They were similar to the lecture courses offered early on by the Indiana University Center. As the 1970's "me" generation disappeared, so did the free university at IPFW.
