Fifty years after the campus uprisings of 1968, college students are again raising their voices in activism—although as Project STAND, the online student dissent archive portal, demonstrates, those voices never went away. Project STAND (Student Activism Now Documented), launched in June 2017 by a coalition of Ohio academic archivists, offers researchers centralized access to historical and archival documentation of student protests spanning more than 175 years. Its collections highlight digital and analog primary sources documenting the actions of student groups who have gathered, marched, protested, sat, occupied, leafleted, and stood up for the concerns of marginalized communities across the country and in Canada—as well as the faculty, staff, and administrators who support them.
