East Lansing – November 27, 2007. On Friday, November 30, 2007 BERT GARSKOF will address the Michigan State University Campus Community, in East Lansing. The reunion will be held at 107 South Kedzie Hall, MSU at 7 PM.
In the 1968-1969 school year, Garskof was an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department of Michigan State University. He was also the Faculty Advisor to MSU-SDS. Nominated by his department as TEACHER OF THE YEAR, he had the highest publication rating and best student ratings. In the Spring of 1969, the Administration of Michigan State University forced Bert out of his assigned classes and put him on â€œfull time research.â€ The Administration subsequently denied Garskof tenure and he left MSU. With an extensive background as a peace and justice activist, Bert Garskof is currently a board member of Foundation for a Democratic Society and an active member of Movement for a Democratic Society. Returning to MSU for an SDS reunion and nonviolent protest, Garskof will address a new generation of MSU SDSers.
