Summary: Former Chancellor Strong states the University of California, Berkeley,
like all public educational institutions, must remain free from political
and sectarian domination. He says the Free Speech Movement's political
demands created conflict with university policies over whether students
would be allowed to use the university for non-university political,
religious or social causes. He argues the university should honor and
respect the students' rights as citizens to engage in political activities
off campus, but should not provide the means for the students to do so on
campus. He says free speech was not the issue of the controversy.
