Following the program, stay for a reception and viewing of the UCI Libraries newest exhibit:
Anteater Spirit: Student Activism That (Re)shaped UCI, 1965 to Now is an exploration of six decades of campus activism at UC Irvine. Ranging from anti-war protests in the 1960s to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibit illustrates student-led efforts that helped shape the campus throughout history.
Socially and politically engaged, UCI students have made their voices heard on topics ranging from affirmative action and rising tuition costs to housing equality, free speech, and civil rights. From the origins of the iconic Peter the Anteater mascot to 21st century wellness centers and food pantries, Anteater Spirit chronicles how each generation of students organized to serve the needs of UCI’s diverse student body.
This exhibit will be on display in the Langson Library from November 2022 through April 2023 during regular library hours.
