520 "Spans the period from World War II to the present during
which Rutgers grew from two small, liberal arts colleges,
an agricultural school, and an engineering school into a
major public research university. We chronicle the
remarkable story of Rutgers's rise as a research
university, but also the way the school has been
experienced by generations or students and residents of
the state. The Cold War, the student protests of the 1960s
and the 1970s, the rise of identity politics on campus,
big-time athletics, and the various ways students have
shaped and been affected by popular culture all play a
part in this story. Three chapters cover chronologically
the major changes that occurred at the university between
1945 and the present, bringing up to date the work done in
Richard P. McCormick's, Rutgers, A Bicentennial History
(1966). The remaining chapters provide snapshots of some
of the key themes in the contemporary history of the
school -- campus life and campus activism, the school's
growing strength as a research institution, the impact of
Title IX on opportunities for women student athletes, the
school's public presence as reflected in such long-
standing institutions as the University Press, the Glee
Club, and undergraduate journalism. Rutgers current
residence halls, which house more students than at any
other college in the nation, are the subject of a
imaginatively illustrated, architectural analysis While
much of the focus of our study is on the New Brunswick/
Piscataway campus, attention has been paid throughout to
Camden and Newark as well"--|cProvided by publisher.
