Description

The Center for Participation in Education (CPE) was a university supported experimental college at the University of California-Berkeley aimed at empowering students to devise innovative classes that focused on pressing contemporary issues. The CPE was a response to growing activism and pressure for reform on campus. CPE pioneered courses in Black Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, Native American Studies, Women's Studies, Environmental Studies, etc. Founded in 1967 from a broader administrative mandate to the Board of Educational Development at UC-Berkeley to initiate and approve experimental courses “for which neither departmental or college support is appropriate or feasible,” by 1969, administrative support had been fatally curtailed.

This catalogue from the Spring of 1970 illustrates the dire straights the program found itself in and lists the classes available that term.
