The campus protests over the summer have led to the closure of more than 100 colleges and universities nationwide.
But what students are protesting most are the institutions that are not facing any real pressure.
They are the universities that are trying to survive, despite the threat of student-led boycotts, mass resignations or the threat to close down their entire campuses.
It’s a trend that’s been growing over the past decade, as the colleges and campuses that serve as models for the nation’s higher education system struggle with rising tuition and a growing student body that is largely underemployed and underequipped.
Many of the campuses that are still operating are also among the most profitable in the country.
They attract thousands of students from the nation of 1.2 billion.
But that’s changing fast.
The students at the University of Michigan and other top U.K. universities have joined the growing wave of student activism, and they’re challenging institutions that have long maintained their independence from the demands of students.
The University of Chicago and other large U.M. and U.L.T. campuses are on the verge of a shutdown, and the University at Buffalo, the nation´s largest public university, is also facing a possible shutdown.
Some of the universities are facing a major budget crisis.
The universities that have been most successful at keeping their campuses open have also been the most politically engaged, even as many of their alumni have become politically active, as has been the case for many of the other institutions.
These colleges and institutions are the ones that students and activists can rally behind.
“The big universities have been able to continue operating because of the economic conditions,” said Scott Aaronson, the president of the American Association of University Professors, which represents more than 1,000 faculty members and staff at more than 300 colleges and other schools in the United States.
But the institutions are also being forced to make tough choices.
The U.P.R. is an online platform that allows students to express their political views.
The administrators at the schools are increasingly using that platform to promote political views that they think will be popular with students, said Aarstein, who is also the president and CEO of the Education Law Foundation, which advocates for more political speech on campus.
The schools have to decide if they want to allow students to use the platform to express those views, or if they can continue to restrict it, he said.
Some are trying harder to limit the platform than others.
“We see a lot of efforts to limit it and some are really working hard to do so,” Aarstons said.
He noted that the university systems of both California and Illinois are facing shutdowns, as are some of the more than a dozen other U.N. peacekeeping missions.
The governments of Canada and Australia also have campuses that have faced shutdowns over the years.
Students are trying in different ways to use their voices.
One group is using the platform on Facebook, and one student group, the Black Lives Matter Student Movement, has launched a petition drive calling for more police protection on campuses across the country, as well as on public transit, at colleges and at concerts and festivals.
“A lot of the activism has been around issues of economic inequality, which is an issue that has been particularly difficult for students and has been especially difficult for our higher education institutions,” Aarsonson said.
The most effective way to get students to voice their concerns is to organize.
“In order to get the attention of these institutions, they have to understand that this is a serious issue,” he said, noting that students often don’t feel like they are listened to.
That is especially true of higher education that has not yet experienced the economic crisis that is gripping the country or the social unrest that has erupted in many parts of the country after the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore in April.
Aarons statement on the Black Lives Matter petition, which has garnered more than 30,000 signatures, noted that students are also getting a much better education when they are at these universities.
“Students are getting an education at these schools that they would not get if they were attending a traditional public school or a private school,” he wrote.
“This education is not about learning how to read, write, or perform basic tasks of everyday life, but rather about learning the values of inclusion, inclusion, diversity, and social justice.”
The protests are also inspiring new ideas and a new way of organizing.
In April, a group of high school students at California State University in Los Angeles took a photo of themselves and posted it on Facebook.
The group said they wanted to “celebrate and show that there is a way out of this crisis.”
They wrote: “It’s time for us to step up and start the revolution, the revolution that will change the world.
The uprising against the system is now underway, and we will take it forward.” In
