<< Back to 1966 Timeline
By the middle of January 1966, the National Student Union organizes a demonstration against the University’s first flat-rate tuition increase. They protest the proposed tuition hike, opposing not only the higher costs of their education but the absence of a student voice in determining such university policies.

Although the NSU "loses" this first skirmish with the NYU administration, they successfully organize an alternate program of radical courses called the Student University of NYU where eight to ten faculty members teach courses in Marxist economics, radical psychology and revisionist history.
