Activism is seated in the realm of movements created by dissatisfaction of treatment (i.e. the isms - race, class, sex) and for the quintessential activist / organizer their first action occurs during their younger and often college experience. However, these experiences are never easy as over the years universities have found the uprise of students demanding change equalizing their environment; such as the examples at Oberlin College (Ohio) and University of Missouri. And despite campuses being a place of development, exposure and learning; administrators and faculty find themselves questioning how to support student activists while remaining responsible to the institution?
